"Cerebrovascular Accident is Described by Doctors SPECIAL CLASSROOM IN PULASKI ^WASHINGTON (UP)-President E:.senhower has suffered what doctors generally call a "minor cere- brovascular accident." In layman's language -that's a mild stroke. Medical authorities agreed today his chances for complete recovery the brain. All such interruptions, they said., .fall into the medical category of "cerebrovascular accidents." Need Is Greater Brain cells', even more than other parts of the body, require a constant flow of blood in order to are excellent. They said it is quite function properly, likely his only symplon-a slight The seriousness of difficulty m speaking-will clear pen ds up within a week or two leaving v no permanent after-effects. The chief cause for concern in a mild stroke, according to a dozen eminent specialists consulted by the United Press, is that sometimes it may be followed' rather quickly by a more severe one. This usually does rat happen. It is the exception rather than the rule. Next Few Days Important The consensus was that the next two- or three days will be important in clarifying the probable pattern .of the President's illness. Physicians attending the President have avoided the word "stroke" in describing the President's condition, possibly because of the scary conrotation it has to many. The official diagnosis given in White House medical bulletins was "an occlusion of a small branch of a cerebral vessel." Outside doctors said this simply means there ruption a stroke de:on what causes the interruption of biood flow, how long it lasts and what area of the brain is affected. The worst kind of cerebrovascu- lar accident is the ,'upture of a blood vessel which produces a hemorrhage in the brain. This is what killed President Franklin I). Roosevelt in 1945. White House physicians said Tuesday night, after extensive neurological exami nations, that President Eisenhower had not suffered a hemorrhage. The official medical bulletin described the President's condition as "an occlusion." This means a blood vessel was blocked. 1 .

(UP) — State and local authorities confer today on the future 'course of the investigation into the-case of Ed Gein, admitted butcher-slayer and grave robber. Dist. Atty. Earl F, Kileen of Waushara County said he was summoned to Madison in a telephone 'call Monday from state j Atty. Gen. Stewart Honeck. Earlier, Wisconsin Gov. Vernon Thomson ordered Honeck to continue the many-sided investigation of Gein's crimes after Kileen and other Waushara County officials had decided to drop the case. The governor's decision indicated the state feared Gein, 51, a Plainfield bachelor farmer, may have been involved in more than the two murders to which he confessed. Authorities in Madison said they probably will decide to order additional lie detector tests for Gein and to open all the graves which the frail farmer admitted looting.

Ir, 1 a vacated schoolhouse Jn the village of Ripley, six miles northwest of here, 21 are being tutored with the painstaking patience vital to their academic world. It is the first time that such children had a building of their own in Pulaski county. It is the third year of the school-, but previous classes were held in churches. Use of the school they are now in was given to them by Arthur Cramer, trustee of Franklin township, which has merged with another school. Children in the school range from 8 to 20 years old. Of the 211 should be enrolled in the special pupils, there are. 19 from Pulaski county, one from Starke, and one from White county. They are divided into two classes, Mrs, Henry Etta Ferguson of Star City teaches the older group while Mrs. Florence Earp of Kewanna teaches the other. Mrs. Earp says each child receives careful, individual attention, according to his needs. Each child is allowed to progress as his ability and capacity dictate. He is not compared in the least with a fellow student. The handicapped child needs more materials to work with than the average child—special blocks or toys or looms which are necessary. To determine whether a child school an 'examination is given to those in question. Each y«ar Dr. John Hadley of Purdue University makes a physical and psychological examination of them. Operation of the school costs about $10,000 annually. The state will pay 80 per cent per pupil more than that alloted to the- average student not in the special school. When the school first started, about $4,000 was collected via a public fund drive so it could operate. The state allotment does not meet the needs and a fund drive is on again, to assure that special schooling is provided the handicapped. Korea's Lady Lawyer Studies U. S.
