Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Little Leaguer May Pitch Again BOSTON (UPI)-A 12-year-old Little Leaguer went home from a hospital Wednesday with a fighting chance of keeping his pitching arm which was torn off by a train and sewn back on three weeks ago. Everett Knowles, red-haired and freckle-faced, had been a patient at Massachusetts General Hospital since May 23, when a team of surgeons and other specialists "reimplantfcd" the arm in a 7%hour operation.' Such an operation has never Before proved successful, doctors said. At the time of the surgery, Everett was given a "one in a .million chance" of keeping the arm and having even limited use of it. Today, however, doctors crossed their fingers and were more hopeful. "It's working so well it's frightening," one official said. Everett lost his right arm while hopping a freight train. He was knocked off the train by a bridge structure, and the train apparently ran over the arm, doctors said. : The next hurdle for the boy is. a operation to connect the nerves of his reimplanted arm with those in his shoulder-leading back into his spine. Donald Grube Expires Here Donald J. Grube, 62. of 2925 High St. Koad, -who has been'hos- pitalized several times in recent months, dfed of a lingering illness in Memorial hospital at 1:10 p.m. Wednesday. He was the president of the Standard Liquors, Inc. of Gary, and for six years Was a sales executive for Joseph E. Seagram and Sons. Born in Danville, 111., on Jan. 20, 1900, he was the son of August and'Alice Johnson Grube. In June of 1932 he married Isabel Murdock who survives together with four daughters:' Caroline, Martha and June! all at home and Mrs. Linda Eisenhuer of Gary. He was a member of the Logansport Elks and the Masonic lodge. In addition to his wife. and daughters he is survived .by six sisters, Mrs. Dorothy Crawford, Evanston, 111.; Lucille Miller, Chicago; Fran Miller, Detroit; At a hospital news conference Wednesday, doctors said Everett's cast would be removed sometime next month and damage to his nerves assessed. If the damage does not reach loo far toward the spine, the nerves will be reconnected but it would take another year or 18 months for the connection to take and for Everett to know if he will be able to use his arm again. A bone graft operation also may be necessary in time. Dr. Ronald A. Malt, resident in surgery, who led the operating team, said that even if the opera- tions are successful, Everett will havo only limited use of his right arm. • It will be clumsy but we hope he will be able to pick things up and feel with his fingertips.' We don't think he'll ever pitch again, but he may surprise us," Malt said.
