In reporting his interesting statistics to the American College of Surgeons, he divided his cases between those who had their operations between 1936 and 1948 and those who.got their after 1948. The dividing year is important because it marked the time when improved surgical techniques per- ,mitted the relatively safe taking of more than half a stomach. Among the pre-1948 patients w^o lost one-half their stomachs, only 14 per cent lost 5 per.cent or more of their pre-operative weight . in the three years following the operation. But Harvey said this wasn't too good a way of measuring because many weight losses, were not "harmful" but were "at times very beneficial." 'A Joss of weight from 200 pounds to 170 after operation would not be disturbing, but a drop from 100 to 95 might well be," he said. So he made these pre-19'58 sta- tistics more- specific and found that only 2.1 per cent 'had weight- losses which "disturbed'' the doctor and only 1.6 per cent bad "serious nutritional defects." Statistics Show Results Then he made an identical statistical table for the patients after 1948. These patients gave up 60 to 75 per cent of their stomachs. During the first three years afterward, 31 per cent lost 5 or more per cent of the pre-operative weights, 11.9 per cent had weight-losses which were medically disturbing, and 6.3 per cent had By 'serious nutritional, defects." removing part of the-stomach the surgeon removes a proportionate pat »f the 'source of the gastric acids which in exces- amounts cause ulcers. He may also remove the part of the vagus nerve which incites the flow of those '• acids. In his recommendations, Har- Vey recommended vagus removal along with 50 per cent stomach removal, together with certain refinements in re-connecting stomach and intestinal 1 tract.

Although 49 million bushels' smaller than total impoundings on Oct. 15, 1956, the estimated reflected an increase of 55 million bushels in the past 30 days compared with 35. million during the same 30 day period a year earlier.
