I It was the second major sui»| cry Dulles has undergone in " ! little more than two years. IM November, 1J156. he was operated on for removal of a cancerous portion of his intestine. White said the tissue and fluids were removed in today's operation a,s a "precautionary meas- jure to see if there was any recurrence or spread of the ear- 'Her malignancy." He sairl thp surgeons "did not go into the area of divei tirulitis" from which the secretary has been suffering for some time. This is an inflamation of (lie lower part of the big intestine. Dulles suffered an attack of di- verticulitis early last December and has never completely recovered. However, While said the surgeons did not probe this area today. White declined to speculate on whether the doctors fear there may be a recurrent malignancy. "They't tell" whether the tissue they removed is malignant, he said, until the "microscopical examination" is completed. 12-Mile Ice Jam Threatening Destruction In Indiana Cities During the ordeal, L o n n i e Worth set his own broken nose while keeping a tragic vigil over lhe body of his wife.
