Critically ill children get pope's blessing 'A gentle, caring man' PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Brooke Johnson is only 2'/i months bid and weighs less than 3 pounds, but her mother believes Pope John Paul n changed the prematurely born infant's life. The pontiff held the child, who had been given only a 10 percent dunce of survival at birth, and Kissed her forehead Monday as he Chatted with her parents. , "Prom the very beginning of her life, it's been miracle after miracle apd this was one more," said Deboy Johnson, the mother. "When she gets older I'll explain to her just how special she is." • The pope blessed other seriously ig children at SL Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, lauded doctors and nurses for their work, and took tine to talk with a Polish pediatrician, Dr. Boguslawa Hvziak, whom he had confirmed while still an auxiliary bishop of Krakow. The emotional walk through the wing was part of the B'I focus on health care during fifth day of his U.S. visit '.To the parents of children he touched, the pontiffs blessings brought hope for their families and insight into a man they found gentle aftd caring. ; 1 know that he is going to help rte go through this, said Tracy nenung, a 13-year-old suffering from a spinal deformity. '1 gave him a little banner and some flowers and he kissed me on the forehead." Ann Koseman, child life coordinator at the hospital, said the pope surprised staff members and organizers by trying to touch every child and nurse he saw. The Secret Service could not keep him away from those children, she said It was very moving to see how the children responded to him and how he responded to them." Before entering St. Joseph's Children's Health Center, the pope mingled with the crowd for about 10 minutes, shaking hands and bestowing impromptu blessings. One woman, breathing with the aid of a respirator, began to weep after the pope touched her and whispered a few words., As he left the children's center, a waiting crowd of about 3,100 hospital employees and their families greeted him with a Polish phrase meaning "may you live to be 100." "That's not so easy to accomplish," the pontiff responded during brief impromptu remarks. "But if it can be possible, it is only possible through love. It's possible not only to live 100 years, but also for the whole eternity when this eternity is charity, when this eternity is love." Bork hearings begin WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Gerald R.

Muchowski Is congratulated by Uklah's Chet Hardln during Labor Day activities on the coast. But Sen. Edward M. Kennedy declared at the nationally televised hearings: "In Robert Bork's America there is no room at the inn for blacks and no place in the Constitution for women. And in our America, there should be no seat on the Supreme Court for Robert Bork." Kennedy, D-Mass., did not say what decisions he believes Bork is anxious to overturn. But he said, Bork has "shown that he is hostile to the rule of law and the role of the courts in protecting individual liberty. USA is world's largest debtor Retail sales jumped in August and industrial production rose for the seventh straight month, the government said today, but it also reported that the April-June U.S. trade deficit swelled to a record $41.1 billion and pushed America deeper into hock as the world's largest debtor. The mixed economic news depressed the stock and bond markets and put further pressure on the wobbly U.S. dollar,' which many analysts believe will have to depreciate until the trade gap starts narrowing significantly. The Commerce Department said that retail sales advanced 1.3 percent in August, the biggest increase in six months, largely because of surging demand for new cars. The report dampened fears that Americans would reduce their purchases because of heavy consumer debt and slow income growth. The Federal Reserve said output at the nation's factories, mines and utilities edged up 0.3 percent in August. The gain was the smallest since April but marked the seventh consecutive monthly increase, reflecting some benefit to U.S. manufacturers caused by the weaker dollar. The current account is considered the most important trade figure because it measures not only trade in merchandise but also trade in services, primarily the flow of investment funds between the Unilec States and abroad.
