At first, Fullerton said the operation was performed "about a week ago." He said Picasso bad come into the hospital under an assumed name, presumably to avoid undue publicity and the fatiguing excitement which this might bring. The director had commented that Picasso was "getting along as well as can be expected for a man of his age." Later, Fullerton said he had confused Picasso with another patient. He suggested that newsmen check the Cochin Hospital, a French institution which specializes in urological diseases. Officials at the Cochin Hospital declined to answer questions.

FRIDAY, DEC. 3, 1965, lakt Chflflfi; Amirlcort Pf<u Beneiador of Blind Observes lOOfh Year WASHINGTON (AP) - The frail, blind woman who opened the world of books again for the newly blinded veterans of World War 1 celebrates her 100th birthday today. It's another milestone for Adelia M. Hoyt, the Iowa- born farm girl who became director of the Library of Congress' Braille transcription section. A special birthday present will be a check for $100 from the Association of tho Workers for the Blind of (he District of Columbia. During her career Miss Hoyt trained more than 2,000 persons to transcribe the reading language of the blind. She began this work at the urgent plea of the American Red Cross when the blinded veterans of World War I started to return home. They were taught In read Braille as part of their rehabilitation. But then it was discovered there were no books available to read once they had learned the system. Miss Hoyt took on the task of training volunteer transcribers, organizing lessons, selecting manuscripts and setting up transcription chapters all over the country. She knew how it, felt to lose sight. Hers began to fade at the age of 6, and when she wfcs 13 she left her home near Cedar Falls to enroll in a school for blind. But education for the sightless then was far from complete. "You had to do it on your own," she recalls. When her family moved lo Washington in 1913, she became an assistant in the reacMng room of the Library of Congress. When she retired in 1938, she was in charge of service for the blind. For many years Miss Hoyt lived at the home for blind in Georgetown. She now lives at a nursing home near the library.
