These conditions consist of heart trouble, chornic lung disease, hypertension, and other incapacitating disorders. So many people fly today that some medical problems en route are inevitable. For example, a . man .with coronary disease develops a heart attack due to the excitement associated with getting to the airport, checking in or greeting friends. A person with high blood pressure or heart trouble should get to the airport, one hour early to avoid the last minute rush. Some insist on carrying their own luggage. In addition, many heart patients are too proud to order a wheel chair, even though they have difficulty walking the long distances to the boarding area.

Sharing boyhood adventures, mis-adventures and school days together, they grew up to work for a common employer, Commonwealth Edison Company. In the early '20's both started to work for the Public Service Company of Northern Illinois, then an Edison subsidiary. For some time they held parallel careers in sales work; later they engaged in administrative, public relations and customer-service activities mainly in the western suburbs. Recently, after a total of 6ver 90 years in the electric utility business, both retired from identical positions. For some time William has been Edison's district superintendent in the Maywood area and George has held the same post in the Oak Park area. In the course of their work both men have become well known to hundreds of customers of the company and to business and civic leaders in many communities of the western suburbs. In their final days on the job, both received the hearty farewells and good wishes of many people with whom they had worked over the years. Among them were John Gearen, (at right In photo), village president.of Oak Park, who expressed his good wishes to them In the village hall.
