BLAKESLEE , Associated Press Science Reporter CHICAGO (AP) — Surgeons today told of a medical miracle, and the part played by simple new artificial lung. ' ; It began with the horrible moment when a steel worker was crushed by a locomotiv against a stone wall. He was a big man, broadshouldered, weighing 235 pounds. Gory Crosby's Night Club Debut a Hit HOLLYWOOD W — Gary Crosby made a smash night club debut last night at Giro's. The husky, eldest son of Bing played the small role of "Darryl Hump," Hollywood musical comedy star, in a revue. The show spoofs the recent Doris Day-James Cagney movie, "Love Me or Leave Me," the story of singer Ruth Etting. Any similarity between the MGM movie and the night club revue was intended to be hilarious. Crosby's brief comedy appearance with Huntz (dead end kid) Hall was easily the show's standout. The two also duelled on a rock 'N roll number called "The Samurai Sword Blues." The Crosby debul was before a hard-to-please show-business audience, meet of whom paid Giro's go- price of $28 per fifth of scotch. Ringsiders included Milton Berle, Sammy Davis Jr., Sheree North .nd Ray Bolger, all of whom joined in the crowd's lusty applause for Crosby's performance. Bing was not there. A friend ex plained the father was afraid he'd : make his 22-year-old son too nerv-j ous on opening night.

He had 35 fractures of 20 ribs, breast bone, clavicles and pelvic bones broken, internal organs injured. .Surgeons and doctors met him at the hospital door. He was unconscious, so badly hurt "it Eeemed he had absolutely no reason to survive," said Dr. Edward E. Avery. Modern aids of medicine and surgery flew to his defense. But with his crushed chest, even if he could begin breathing normally, the motion would prevent knitting of the wired-up bones of his broken ribs. Told by Inventor The simple new lung gave the answer. The story was described to the American College of Surgeons yesterday 'by Dr. E. T Morch, inventor of the lung; Dr. Avery and Dr. p. W. Benson of Northwestern Medical School and the University of Chicago Clinics. The man recovered .and is back: at work. The Inner is helping polio victims, people with injured chests, patients in breathing troubles after surgery or for other causes. •Dr. Morch's MIIIET did the breath- Ing for a month day and night for the crushed man. It blew air gently into his lungs, then let it escape. The man's own breathing muscles stopped working, his motionless ribs could knit. The ne lung is a transparent plastic box, two feet wide, three feet long, a foot high .It can be shoved under a bed. Tube in Throat \A motor-driven piston pumps air through a tube and valve in pulses, like normal breathing. The air enters through a tube inserted at the .throat into the trachea or air-tube of the lungs. The throat, tube is necessary if the artificial lun^ is going to do a person's breathing for days. For snorter periods, the tube can more simply be put into the nose or mouth. Swivels in the metal part of the throat tube permit the person to move his head, lie on his sides or back, have lull range of movement. Advantages are that it is comfortable, unlike the tight . collar needed on an iron lung: that the patient can move, avoiding bed sores from lying only on his back: he can be car for as easiJv as any ordinary patient. Dr. Morch said. The lung has only two levers for adjusting air Ifow speed and volume. If electric power fails, the piston can be pumped by hand Dr. Morch estimates that production manufacture, .would make it cost $500 to SI.000, a third the price of iron lungs. The medical team said they had not found any difficulty from over- ventilation with the lung. That is, supplying too much air and up> setting the acid-alkali balance of the body. The lung breathed for days for a young girl, paralyzed "up to her ears" by polio. She recovered completely, and now is taking rhumba lessons, Dr. Morch said.
