(UPI) U.S. wafplanes carried out raids for the 100th consecutive day in Cambodia today, hit* ' ting suspected Communist targets south of Phnom Penh. There was no indication the United States would end its wide air operations in Cam* inn T\ r\1 1 kodia when a new' cease-fire WU UayS UlCl agreement comes into effect »/ in neighboring South Vietnam at I p.m. Friday, or midnight Thursday EDT. After he signed the agreement Wednesday in Parts, Many Deaths Aren't Explained Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. uj . that adequate studies were done Dear Dr. Lamb - A few days to prove that there was no ago in our local newspaper you hemorrhag6 in the braln vvhich had an article on unexplained _ °. ., . deaths in infants. Can you tell can sometimes occur suddenly me anything about unexplained in Voun g people, and that there deaths in adults? were no other important ana- About six months ago daughter age 29; married, with two small children, 1% and 3% died with no explanation. About were no other important our|tomical findings, which is the reason for your doctor stating that the death was caused by a heart irregularity. The cause three weeks before her death even for ser i 0U s irregularities bill V-V T. x >w.* v she had a convulsion and was rushed to the hospital where many tests were given. She was unconscious nearly seven hours. They ran the brain wave tests — heart tests and after four days she was dismissed with no explanation. Then about three weeks later she just fell over while having breakfast with her two children. She was in excellent health and except for the ordinary childhood diseases she was never sick. She had no anxieties nor complained of any physical illness. About three weeks before her convulsion she had had a severe sore throat and received penicillin and was apparently cured. Nothing Wrong An autopsy was performed but nothing was found wrong with any of her organs. The death certificate was listed as cardiac arrhythmia (clinical). The doctors who attended her suggested she must have had rheumatic fever as a child. I checked with the doctor she had when she was a child and he said, no way could she have had rheumatic fever. We would like to know for our own peace of mind as well as wondering if there might be something the children could inherit. We would appreciate any comment you could make. Dear Reader — There are probably a lot of adult deaths that are not explaind. An examination may show liver disease, heart disease, or a variety of abnormal conditions which can develop in the course of life but their presence alone does not mean that' they are the cause of death. These findings may be coincidental. There is no way to be certain what caused your daughter's death from the information at hand. Certainly an irregularity of the heart which interferes with the heart's inability to pump blood to the brain can result in a convulsion. If the pumping- action of the heart isn't restored, brain damage and death can ensue. I assume from your remarks of the heart is not always ap parent. It's possible that there was a birth defect in the complex electrical mechanism of the heart. This, however, doesn't mean that it would be passed on to the children. Possible Cause It could have been from old rheumatic fever and incidentally, children do have rheumatic fever without sufficient illness to make it possible to establish a diagnosis at the time. There may be no associated strep throat, joint pains, or other findings. Only later in adult life can it be determined in retrospect that someone had rheumatic fever in some of these cases. Microscopic examinations of the tissues sometimes is the only way that the diagnosis can be established. Cardiac irregularities that occur spontaneously with no apparent cause and result in death t do not leave any evidence to be seen on examination afterward. I'd like to emphasize that many cardiac irregularities are minor and of no consequence. Almost all of us have an occasional skipped beat whether we are aware of them or not. But they can be serious, even in young, apparently healthy people. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.

Kissinger said the United States was not obliged by the Agreement to stop bombing in Cambodia. In Phnom Penh, there was no official reaction to the agreement. CAMBODIAN military offr cials reported "heavy" U.S. bombing southwest of Phnom Penh, the site of what the officials called sharp fighting. But they gave no details of the strikes. The high command said government troops mounted a counterattack against rebel forces en Highway 3 about 16 miles s6Uth of Phnom Penh. No details or casualty figures were Immediately available. Field reports from the edge of a Comtfltmisfcoecupied part of Highway 4, about 17 miles to the southwest of the capital, said government troops there remained stalled in clearing operations. Highway 4, the country's one road from the capital to the seaport of Kompong Som, has been closed by Communists for more than a week. HOWEVER, the high com­ mand said a large truck convoy carrying rice and other foodstuffs reached Phnom Penh from the western provinces via Highway 5 without incident Wednesday. On the political front, the Information Ministry dis* tributed a brief document entitled "North Vietnam's Violations of Article 20, which concern Cambodia and Laos of the Paris Accords." The document said President Lon Not declared a halt in offensive operations last January, but that "violent North Vietnamese offensives" had followed/ it said North Vietnamese troop strength in Cambodia stood at 45,000 and that North Veitnam had Violated Article 20 by: —refusing to withdraw her forces. —increasing infiltration of men and material. —openly interfering in tht Internal Cambodian affairs, notably by forcibly recruiting local auxiliaries to camouflage North Vietnamese "aggression."
