His five older brothers and sisters all were healthy children, too. But in early July, when Gary was 6 weeks old, he became desperately ill. The young parents heard the dread verdict — spinal meningitis. His life was despaired of. At last doctors were able tti perform a craniotomy, draining off the pus that had accumulated on the baby's brain. He became stronger, little by little, and at last, in August, was able to be brought home. But the Krumms weren't 'out of the woods' yet. Later checkups (revealed that the meningitis had .eft Gary with a rare disfunction- . ing of the portion of the •brajrj; ( which regulates the absorption of spinal fluid*., -Normally this fluid' is 'assimilated -into :the ; bloo'd, stream by action of .the brain. Since little .Gary's . illness had 3een so grave and deposits of pus had formed in the brain for ome time before they could be emoved, it was no longer possi- ile for the excess spinal fluid to ' ie disposed of as it normally ' vould. As recently as four years ago, is case would have been hope- ess. It might not even have been diagnosed, and certainly would have been impossible to cure. Biit research scientists have worked out a technique by,which an extremely skilled surgeon may be able to connect the patient's spinal cord to the stomach, Phan*7M Tirt Headquarters Kossuth Mutual Insurance Assn.

This tube carries the excess spinal fluid to the stomach, where it is relayed to the bloodstream by the digestive processes. This is the operation performed on little Gary Krumm at the famed Mayo clinic at Rochester is one qualified to perform the ex- remely delicate neuro-surgery. le is Dr. Dodge. (University hospitals at Iowa City also have one surgeon on their staff who can perform the operation). The Mayo clinic doctors frank- y told Gary's parents that there would be risk—great risk. "We knew and understood this," say the young couple. "But it was Gary's one chance. We had to give him that chance." Tho operation was successful. Baby Gary, who will, in all probability, always wear a tube in his stomach, is thriving. Best of all, doctors say he will be able to live a normal life. The family physician only shakes his head and says, "It's a miracle!" Mel Krumm is cashier of the Swea City bank and secretary of the school board. His pretty Louisiana-born wife is the former Carolyn LeCompte, whom Krumm met during World War II when he 'was a member of the Coast Guard. The Krumms have m a n y friends in this community. Mel was born and reared here, and has been a popular and efficient employee at the bank. The family are communicants of St. Mary's Catholic church at Armstrong, and Mel is a promoter of various movements for community welfare. So it was natural that some of his friends and neighbors should give thought of the Krumms and their long and costly battle with sickness. Accordingly, a plan was quiet- y set in motion, Main Street Viends were contacted, and a :und was started in the Krumm's behalf. On Christmas day, when the reunited family were enjoying one another's company and the joy of the day, a knock came at the door. Editor Bob Schwartz, the Krumm's neighbor Arthur- Peterson, and a friend, Raymond Johnson, handed the family an envelope. Inside it were a " Christmas card, a list oi and a gift of over $300.
