"We are in this respect a disappointment to the world but, far more important than that, a disappointment to ourselves," he said. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and long a leading congressional voice of Vietnam dissent, commented in a sharp and often bitter attack on war policies. His appraisal was prepared for Senate delivery. In another Senate speech, Sen. Thomas J, Dodd, D-Conn., a member of Fulbright's com- -mittee, argued that war critics must realize North Vietnam is encouraged by "every act of dissent in this country." The critics, Dodd said, should not pretend "there is no danger in unrestrained public dis^us- sion. Fulbright said 'the United States seeks in Vietnam to 'prove that wars of national lib- [eratlon cannot succeed and to 1 demonstrate America's willingness and ability to save beleaguered governments from Com- rriunist insurgents. But all that is being demonstrated, he held, "is America's willingness and ability to use its B52s, its napalm and all the other ingenious weapons of counterinsurgency to turn a small country into a charnel house."

Gerald A. Brown, the "Kool Aid Kid" from Texas who was killed fighting for that Southeast Asian nation last spring. Posthumous awards of four medals for gallantry were made, plus a citation from the Freedom Foundation for an essay entered by Brown not long before he died. His mother, Mrs. L. F, Spaulding of Fort Worth, accepted the decorations from Executive Vice President W. M. Pearce of Texas Technological College, where Brown was graduated. The occasion was Tech's Air Force- Army ROTC fall retreat. Brown, a warrant officer, became known as the Kool Aid Kid after he asked his mother to help collect packs of the soft drink powder by that name for Vietnamese children. His concern for the youngsters and their parents grew into a nationwide Project Vietnam for gathering food and medicines to aid civilians in that country. Citations signed by Lt. Gen. Ngu Yen Thieu, now president of South Vietnam, accompanied two of the medals received by Mrs. L. F. Spaulding for her son—the Gallantry Cross with palm and the National Order of Vietnam Fifth Class, These credited Brown for being "a courageous combatant, well known for his sacrifices, who... assisted the Republic of Vietnam armed forces in blocking the Red wave of aggression from engulfing South Vietnam and Southeast Asia." There also were two Viet- namese Gallantly Crosses with bronze stars awarded at the regimental level and a $50 prize with the Freedom Foundation medal, presented for "outstanding achievement in bringing about a better understanding of the American way of life." With Mrs. Spaulding at the ceremony were her husband and Anna Barzel of Berlin, who had planned to marry Brown when he finished Army service.

It was the largest single shift of gold in U.S. history, surpassing a $448 million movement in February 1947 to cover the original U.S. subscription to the International Monetary Fund. The shift also dropped the monetary gold supply to its lowest level in more than 30 years. The monetary gold stock now stands at $12.434 billion, the lowest since the $12.433 billion on July 28, 1937, after undergoing the largest weekly drop on record.

President Johnson headed the list of notables from varied faiths and many nations who assembled Thursday to render final honor to the best-known American prelate five days after he died of a stroke at 78, The Hev. Robert I. Gannon said in his eulogy the cardinal would be remembered "first and foremost as a faithful and devoted priest.. .he never tried to impress anyone—even the most exaJted."

Outside thousands of mourners gathered on Fifth and Madison avenues and maintained a hushed solemnity in the chill and damp wind. Thousands more watched the service on television throughout the metropolitan area. The service started with a procession of religious leaders of the many faiths ciad variously in black and white cassocks, purple chasubles and academic gowns into the majestic gothic cathedral, Eighteen churchmen, led by the apostelic deiegate-'fo the United States, Archbishop Lulgi Rajmondi, and including six American pardinals, pojned. in coneelebrating the solemn requiem.

Me lived normally for 6% hours after the operation then the life stopped, the heart stopped beating. There was no explanation Why, the doctors said, they didn't know why. That was Wednesday this week, when surgeons at Maimo- nides Medical Center in Brooklyn admitted failure in the second reported attempt in history to transplant a human heart- Just three days earlier, doctors in Cape Town, South Africa, had completed the first such operation. Louis Washkansky, a '55-year- old grocer, was alive in Cape Town, with the heart of a 25- year-old Woman, who had been killed in a traffic accident, sending the life surging through his body. Now that the first attempts have been made, it appears there will be others. The procedure is likely to be essentially! the same as the Maimonides operation, described for The Associated Press by four members of the team in an interview Thursday. Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz, the chief surgeon in the operation, credited Dr. Norman Shumway of the Stanford Medical Center, Palo Alto, Calif., with developing the procedure. It was described by Dr. Koga, Dr. Jacques L. Sherman Jr., the hospital medical director, andl Drs. Hans E, Carstensen and Eduard Sujansky. On one side of the room, a 3- day-old boy with a healthy heart but a lethal brain lesion died. It was about 4 a.m., although the doctors don't recall the precise time. They had been waiting for his death, knowing, they said, that it was inevitable. "Within' minutes," Dr. Sherman said, "when the heart action stopped, his chest was opened. At the same time, another team of surgeons was opening the chest of the other infant." The 2Vz-week-old baby who was to receive the new heart— his was damaged so badly he would have died in days or weeks at the most—was in deep Hypotherfnia. t Me w&s literally encased in ice cubes to lowef his body temperature from 3? degrees centigrade to 16-50 degrees. This slows the body's me* tabolism, lessening the need for dfcygeft and keeping the baby from dying during the time his without a heart. Oxygen is pumped into his lungs' by the anestheologist. The infant ms without a heart for about 3§ minutes during the operation. Doctors remove the healthy heart from the dead donor, place it in a small basin containing an ice cold saline solution -chilling it to about 4 degrees centigrade—so it too cad avoid damage while it is without oxygen. All the functioning parts of the damaged heart are removed; all that remains are a small part of the back wail of the upper climbers or atrium and the septum or membrane between them. This gives the surgeons a "bed' 1 in which to place the new heart as they suture the atrium, the aorta or maid artery and the pulmonary artery. "When ;this is done," the sur« geon explained, "the transplanting is complete. Then, the reheating starts. The heart is in place, but it's a cold heart although it has warmed up a bit during the procedure." Also, at this point, the cardiologist begins to squeeze or message the heart, trying to stimulate it into beating, working closely with the anesthesiologist, who pumps tht lungs. "This is the most difficult part," Dr. Carstensen said. "Su turing is something surgeons do every day." This is what calls for the spe cial experience gained in research with animals, Dr. Sherman said. The team has per formed some 250 experimental animal transplants. The ice is removed and warm water—at about 40 degrees— is put into (he bassinet-like object the baby lies in. A warm, sterile, saline solution is put inlo the heart area. The liquid is kept flowing, the heart is being massaged, the lungs pumped. They have been working with a tiny heart—about 1% inches across from apex to base. Srugs are given to help counteract the body's normal tendency to reject foreign tissue. Sodium" bicarbonate is given to counter a buildup of acid in the ! tissue during the time without 'oxygen. Calcium chloride is used to give more "tone" to the heart muscle. As the muscle tone develops, before the calcium chloride is given, the heart muscle will start to contract.

"He says he is aching from lying too still," said Dr. Christian Barnard. "He is keen to get out of bed. He is allowed to sit up but that is all so far." Mrs. Washkansky visited her husband Thursday for the first time since the operation and found him strong, cheerful and "just too beautiful." "I'm feeling fine," Washkan- sky told his fellow South Africans in a nationwide broadcast from his bedside. Barnard said Washkansky is, in fact, somewhat tired. !
