Johnson Quit After Smoking Heart Attack By .TOIIN BARBOUR Associated Press Staff Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-It Isn't likely thai President Johnson ever will forget that July day in Wfi as his car rolled through the Virginia countryside. He had been working hard. As majority loader of the Senate under a Republican president, he was known as a master persuader. Already there was talk about the Democratic nomination lor president. Now—on this Saturday, July 2, he was bound for the Middleburg, Va., home of a friend. Suddely it came, the severe pain in the chest. There was the emergency examination hy a local doctor who diagnosed a heart attack, then the quick trip to the Naval hospital in Bethesda, Md., and the life-saving work of doctors. A few days later, a fellow senator said doctors told him the 16-year-nld Johnson had almost died: "The first few hours wore extremely serious."

Weighing about 220 pounds, he dieted—and in a few months was down to about 175. His convalescence progressed from the hospital to his Washington home to his Texas ranch. At his rnnce, ho began a careful regimen of exercise- short walks morning and afternoon. Doctors then set about redesigning the life of Lyndon Johnson as much as the man's personality would permit. The regular checkups every month spelled out the spectacular recovery. Blood pressure normal. Pulse normal, x-rays showed no enlargement of the heart that would indicate it was compensating for some vital returned to normal, showing the heart had recovered its regularity of function. His wife, Lady Bird, helped by sharing his rigid diet. On Dec. 14, one of his doctors was able to report: "Senator Johnson is now active and his reactions to activity are normal." By the end of the year, the doctors had spelled the conditions under which he could operate. Those conditions included frequent short vacations of two or three days taken throughout the year. Would he have another heart attack? Said Dr. James C. Cain of (lie Mayo Clinic, a personal friend of the senator: "He does not have to have another. Because he has had one, he's not destined to have a second." Anyone who has had a heart LAWRENCEVUXE, 111. (AP) —Harry Guy Pinkstaff continued his seventh month In Lawrence County Jail today after refusing again to post a $1,5500 peace bond in a squabble over seven acres of corn. Justice of the Peace C.W. Hooker turned down Pinkstaff's appeal Thursday that he be freed from jail where he was taken May 13 after declining to sign the bond. Two farmers said they were threatened by Pinkstaff when they planted corn on a seven- acre tract they lease. Pinkstaff, 70, who says he owns the land, denied threatening them. Hooker ordered Pinkstaff to post the peace bond as assur ance he would not do violence. Statues make the bond effec tive for up to a year indicating Pinkstaff could remain behind bars until May 1964. His attorney, Philip Benefiel, said he is studying other pos sibility of appeal.

But Johnson has picked up | his vigorous life, and has met | unusual stresses without apparent ill effect. A friend agreed that while he j works hard, he relaxes hard too. In the eight years since Johnson suffered his heart attack, he has led an active life. Perhaps the reason is that any heart attack victim, being forewarned is being forearmed —and the warning is hard to forget. no money down Take up to 36 months to pay • FREE DELIVERY • WARDS NATIONWIDE J LOW PRICES EVERY DAY, and • FREE normal installation !
