POPE TRIUMPHS OVER ILLNESSES Doctor's Skillful Care Also Deserves Credit for Saving Life. . VATICAN CITY, W)--Pope Pius' amazing resistance to the complication of serious illnesses which for many weeks made his death seem imminent was a com- blned"triumph for his own indom- itable'will and the skillful care of his physician, Dr. Aminta Milan!. When the 79 year old pontiff found himself unable to rise from his bed the morning of Dec. 5, 1936, the afflictions from which he was suffering included: Arterio sclerosis (hardening o( the arteries). Varicose (swollen) veins. High blood pressure. · Myocarditis (inflamation of the heart muscles). · Thrombosis (clolting o f t h e blood) in the left leg accompanied by acute pain and a light form ol paralysis. · . ·· . Asthma. . Follows Traditional Practice. Dr. Milani, whom the pope never had permitted to make a "thorough examination, prescribed treatment which followed traditional medical practice. From .the start he administered digitalis to stimulate the heart, di- uretin to increase kidney- secretions and theobrqmin to reduce blood pressure. As the holy father improved the digitalis doses were reduced, the diuretin and .theo- brimin treatments continued. The acute pains which:the ppn- ff suffered presented a difficult, roblem. In themselves they im- osed a severe strain on the pa- icnt's weakened heart. Yet Dr. iflilani wished to avoid hypoder- nic injections of opiates because t their depressing after effects on fie heart. ,. Resort to Injections. Injections of pantopon (extract if opium) were resorted lo only .uring the worst periods of the loly father's torment. Valerian Irops, a milder sedative, were giv- n the rest of the time in doses of rom 30 to 35 drops twice a day. Camphorated oil and similar leart stimulants were injected vhen the pope's heart action bee most .critical or to fortify lim for. such taxing efforts as his Christmas radio broadcast and his adib address' to the eucharistio ongress at Manila. .;When the pontiff's X'aricose /eins-burst and an'ulcerous con- ition developed, Dr. Milani in- ected antiseptic solutions as a recaution against infection. Simlar measures were taken to com- ! iat the danger of gangrene. Clot Danger Disappears. The open wounds at first were lathed in a saline solution. Later hey, .were, treated: with, an iodo- ormj belly, and packs soaked *in Jorosalicyhc solution and DaJun s liquid, both 'antiseptics. As danger from the clot disap- eared t electric ray ..treatments timulated the pope's sluggish cir-. ulation. His legs..were massaged o restore tone to' muscles grown labby during the many weeks he vas confined to bed: While the pontiff's illness was :titical, his nourishment was given n small quantities at intervals ol hree hours. He was limited to a maximum o£ one pint of liquids a day to avoid strain on his kidneys. Often when he was prostraled vith exhaustion after long periods of suffering, a cordial helped to revive his strength. Oil Storage Tank in Minneapolis Blasted by Dynamite Charge MINNEAPOLIS, (IP}--A 15,OUO gallon storage tank of the Petroleum Service company was blown up Tuesday night at a sub- storage 'plant near the south city limits. Two other tanks, one with a capacity of 15,000 gallons and the other of ,10,000 gallon' capacity, had been tampered with and the valves left open, investigators said. All three were full of fuel oil. The tank was,blown iip at the base by dynamite, Fire Marshal George F.. Wilson announced after visiting the plant. The Petroleum Service company is one of three firms affected by a strike of the Petroleum Workers union. Globe-Gazette Radio News and Time-Table KGLO Mason City -.'
