Monday, Jan. I, 1959 AUSTIN (Minn.) HERAlD-9 SHARING THEIR BURDEN — Seven-year-old twins Julia, left, and Magdelina Urdiales, of San Antonio, Tex., are identical even in misfortune. But they make q smiling appeal for contributions to the 1959 March of Dimes campaign against polio and other diseases. The girls are believed to be the only identical twins stricken with paralytic polio at the same time. Afflicted at the age of six months, they wear long leg braces and still receive out-patient care at the Robert B. Green polio clinic at San Antonio. HUMPHREY INVESTIGATES Honorable Discharge Awarded After Report By RICHARD P. POWERS WASHINGTON (AP)— Injury of R Minnesota man in an automobile accident two years ago has led the Coast Guard to wipe out a dishonorable discharge given him in 1944 and to grant him an honorable discharge instead. Jay Allen Foley, S3, enlisted in the Coast Guard in 1942 at the age of 16 and was given a dishonorable discharge Jan. 3, 1944, for indifference to military discipline. Thick File A thick file in the office of Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-Minn)— ftccumulated over the last 12 months— tells the story. •Just a year ago, E. D. Garrett of St. Paul, Foley's brother-in- law, wrote Humphrey asking his aid. Garrett gave these details: Foley was severely injured in an automobile accident in 1956 at Lancaster, Calif., where he was employed by the state highway department. He remained in a coma for three months, during which time a Dr. Grant, a brain surgeon in Pasadena, performed two eight-hour operations upon Foley. Foley was paralyzed, expenses Mrs. A. 0. Foley, who then were! living in Monrovia, Calif., that he! had found a brain growth of long! | standing, perhaps from birth. Dr. j Grant said this should have justi-| fied a medical discharge rather than a dishonorable discharge from the Coast Guard. Garrett asked Humphrey's aid in getting Foley admitted to a Veterans Administration hospital. Foley had been barred because of the type of his discharge. Humphrey then began long correspondence with the VA and with the Coast Guard, seeking a review ofj the case. j Last spring Dr. Grant perform-1 ed another operation upon Foley and removed the tumor. "This surgery," Garrett wrote Humphrey, "revealed extensive adhesions and another fluid'pocket which were thoroughly repaired. I This has resulted in some im-1 provement in the use of Jay's left I arm and Dr. Grant is at present i well-satisfied with his progress; . . ." But Garrett said it was es-11 sential that the dishonorable dis-,, charge be reversed so Foley could j be admitted to a VA hospital for] treatment. | Sent to Board ! In May, Rear Adm. J. A. Hirsh- * - • •• • —i- in may, near AUm. J. A Hirsll- amounted to about $15,000 "which field, acting commandant of the just about tapped out the entire Coast Guard, advised Humphrey farmly." He ater recovered to the that Foley's case had been sent extent of walking with a limp but had a semi-useless left arm and "a condition of mental instability . . ." Brain Growth A further exploratory operation was performed and Dr. Grant informed Foley's parents, Mr. and Strive Mightily but Drink and Eat as Friends BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Iff Mrs. Betty Powell was being examined for possible jury duty when she voiced her objection to the courtroom friendliness of the two opposing lawyers. Then Judge Thomase quoted to her from Shakespears "The Taming of the Shrew": "And do as adversaries do in law, strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends." Mrs. Powell wa« excused from duty. Iowa Governor Gets $1,000 Pay Boost DBS MOINES, Iowa UPI — Gov. Herschel Loveless and other state officials are now on the state pay- to the Coast Guard review board and that the board had agreed to' | review the case. Meanwhile in June the Veterans : j Administration's Board of Voter- ! ans Appeals said the nature of ; | Foley's acts while in the service: barred him from VA hospitaliza- • tion. But the Coast Guard review' board said it would review the! case in the fall. I When the case came up for review, the Coast Guard board: had this record before it: 4 Occasions Foley was convicted on four occasions: by Deck Court Feb.; 25, 1943, for nine days AWOL (Away without leave); by summary court martial March 29, 1943, for three days AWOL; sum-; mary court martial July 7, 1943 1 for 19 days AWOL; and by summary court martial Nov. 1C, 1943 Troland f or 15 days AWOL. It also had before it Foley's complete medical record and a j letter from another doctor, Dr.' Arthur R. Timms, stating that 1 ] findings by Dr. Grant of the brain' tumor "could account for a lifetime basic instability." American:] Legion representatives submitted') Foley's case at the hearing. Recently the Coast Guard board 11 of review ordered that Foley ;| should receive a general discharge, under honorable condi- ; . - ,.„.,, tions, "in lieu of the undesirable | roll at pay increases of $1,000 a discharge" issued in 1944. i'ear. j Foley'» rights thus have been The raises were voted by the' full y restored and he is eligible 1957 Legislature and became ef-' for VA hospitalization-and care, fective Jan. 1. The governor's pay is now $13,500 a year. Lover Jailed; Pops Question 14 Times Blackbirds Do More Damage Than Borers MADISON, WIS. UB - Entomologist E. L.
