Phone 798 Monte have him home," say his parents, who have sp,ent most of the time since Gary's birth in seeking medical help for the tiny boy. Gary was a strong, healthy baby at birth. • 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 pareiits heard the dread verdict—spinal meningitis. His life was despaired of. At last doctors were able- ta 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 broqght home. But the Krumms weren't 'out of the woods' yet. Later^-che'ckups revealed that the meningitis had left Gary with, a rare disfunction-, ing of' the portion of the brajn which regulates the absorption of spinal fluid. Normally this fluid^s'assmrilateid Into 'the' blood" stream byi action of'the brain. Since little'Gary's illness had been so grave and deposits of pus had formed in the brain for some time before they could be removed, it was no longer possible for the excess spinal fluid to • be disposed of , as 'it normally would. ~ ' • As recently .as four years ago,; his case would have been hopeless. It might not-even have been diagnosed, and certainly would have been impossible 'to cure. But research scientists haye: worked out a technique by which, an extremely skilled surgeon may be able to connect the pat-' ient's spinal cord to the stomach, by means of a tube. 'T^his tube • carries the excess spinal fluid ; to the stomach, whete it is re-, layed to the bloodstream by the /• digestive processes. This is the- operation performed" ori little Gary Krumm at the famed Mayo clinic at Rochester is one qualified -to perform the extremely delicate neurb-surgery. He is Dr. Dodge. (University hospitals at Iowa City also have one surgeon on their staff who can perform the operation). The Mayo clinic doctors frankly told Gary's parents that there would be risk—great risk. "We x knew and understood this," say the young couple. "But it was Gary's one chance. We had to give him that chance." The 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 hjs head and says, "It's a miracle!" Mel Krumtn is cashier, of the Swea City bank and secretary of the school board. His pretty Louisiana-born wifik is the form-- er Carolyn LeCompte, whom Krumm met during World War II when he was a member of the Coast Guard. The Krumms have many 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- . ly set in motion, Main Street friends were contacted, and a fund 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 c^me at the door. Editor Bob Schwartz, the Krumm's neighbor Ajrthjjir Peterson, and a friend, Raymond \ Johnson, handed the family an envelope. Inside it were a Christmas card, a list of names, and a gift of over $300.
