WILLLIAM A. BRAMS Distributed by NEA Service NEW YORK — (NEA) — What ig in your fc ,rt attack? A the usual symptoms? To the thousands who've had such attacks — and the millions of others who fear them — these are important questions. /The answers can help them greatly to understand their condition, or to recognize signs of danger. Defined simply, an attack of coronary thrombosis is the interruption — often sudden anc' dramatic — of the work your heart has performed so well since your birth. But to give you a clearer picture, we'll suppose that you've had a heart attack that's severe, and includes al! the symptoms. Actually,, severe attacks, are not the com monest; if they seem so, it is because they are the most certain of being identified and are the most distressing and exciting. Pain is your most urgent symptom. There are so many kinds of pain that doctors have a variety of names for them: oppressive, squeezing, crunching, burning. It may range from a slight feeling of pressure, in some lucky individuals, to the feeling you're caught in a vise which is rapidly crushing your ribs. Fortunately, the condition itself is often not as grave as the pain may lead you to think. An acutely painful attack is not necessarily a sign that your heart is extensively damaged. It may mean that you are more sensitive to pain than the Roaming around Hollywood Hospitals Turns up Several Weil-Known Figures HOLLYWOOD (,Tj — Roaming •around the hospitals today: Comedian Jimmy Durante, left St. John's in Santa Monica yesterday after weekend treatment of an intestinal upset.

Dr. Armand J. Eardley says he thinks it might be caused by heat and expansion at the earth's interior resulting from decomposition of radioactive substances. His theory differs from one more commonly held, which Lays mountain-formation to cooling and wrin- vling of the earth's crust. He expounded the theory last night in an annual memorial lecture. today. He was taken to Cedars of Lebanon for observation last night. Orchestra leader Bob Crosby, 41, is reported still in serious, but not critical, condition at St. Vincent's under treatment for lobar pneumonia.

The opposite also is true; aboil five per cent of very severe attacks produce no pain at all and a much large proportion have no pain with milder attacks. The pain may last for 15 or 30 minutes, or even for one or two days. It rests in or near the centei of your chest — where your hear: is actually situated — and not inside or near your left breast, where most people think it is. * • • The peculiar feature is that resting will not assuage it. When you realize that the pain is brought on by the fact that your heart's supply of oxygen has been drastically cut by a blood clot, you will see that neither rest nor activity will change things. Your trouble is in one or the other of the coronary arteries, two large blood vessels that encircle your heart like a wreath. These are not a part of the general circulatory system of your body. Their purpose is to convey a supply of blood to the heart Itself, for its own maintenance. Your heart is actually a pump made out of sturdy muscle which drives the blood in an endless circuit around your body. As Jong as it gets enough blood to give it the proper nourishment, it is able to keep up its work day after day and year after year. But suppose the feed line clogged? Now the fuel supply is not enough and the pump operates under difficulties. And with the pump out of order, the whole body must without its full supply of blood and can barely operate.

And the pain, the weakness and shortness of breath came on when the heart, nil at once, had to keep on doinff its job despite the shortage of fuel. As we are supposing your case is serious, you will show signs of shock, such as a wounded soldier shows after excessive bleeding. Your face turns ashen gray and you break out into a cold sweat. You may retch, belch ssp and vomit. And you're usually very afraid. Some patients complain of palpitation — the sensation that the heart is beating abnormally hard and fast. This Is uncomfortable and annoying, but not dangerous in itself. You breathe with difficulty — gasping and struggling for air as though you had acute asthma. After a day or two, you show a slight touch of fever, as the body begins to mobilize for the job of repairing the damage. * . * All (his time, I have been ciesrib- Ing a heart attack it 1U worit.
