BLTTHEVILIJ! (ASK.)' COURIER NEWB WEDNESDAY, 'DECEMBER 14 Eisenhower, Johnson And White Give Hope To Heart Sufferers By JAMES MARLOW AHOCIaed Press N'ewi Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — No three men — two of them by being themselves and one by his sensible explanations — have done more than Eisenhower, Johnson and White to Great* hope for a full life among victims of heart attacks. Preildent Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson of Texas, leader of the 8«utc Democrats, are recovering from heart attacks of their own. It was Dr. Paul Dudley White, Boston heart specialist, who did ttu explaining. Neither Eisenhower, stricken in September, nor Johnson, who had hii attack in July, is out of the woods yet — in the sense they have «o fully recovered their doctors can tell them to resume a full life. Both Awaiting Verdict Both are awaiting the final medical verdict: Eisenhower in February, Johnson later this month. It may be the doctors will tell Eisenhower he can't run again and Johnson that the job of Senate leader is too. much for him. Even so, both men will go on leading lives just short of all-out. This need be no discouragement to other heart cases since a full life for both those men means a strain Mid responsibility most people never have to worry about. If the verdict is against the full- Mt activity for them, Johnson may have to give up the Senate leadership but will stay, in the Senate and Eisenhower will continue to fill his job as president until his term ends in January W57. Eisenhower and Johnson, through their prominence, focused the nation's attention on the problem of cardiac cases and how men, j eg. unwilling to Jet it throw them, can I Ki get up out of bed and be them- j ^ selves again, patiently working toward recovery. Great Opportunity This doesn't mean heart ca can or should chase fire engines again, cliinb mountains or fight n 10-round bout. But those are extremes anyway. Because Dr. White was one of Eisenhower's physicians, and because Eisenhower was the first president in history to have known heart attack, White had greater opportunity to talk common sense about the heart to more peo pie than any doctor in history. He used the opportunity to the utmost to do good. Through an aiticle specially written for The Associated Press for newspaper use and through repeated news conferences he preached this gospel: Trying to resume your full life is the best treatment. One heart attack doesn't necessarily mean you'll ever have another. Some heart cases live to a ripe old age and die of something else. Mr. and Mrs. 0. J. Cooper o£ New Orleans, and J. M.
