Monday Cooley testified he performed the world's only artificial heart operation on a human being on April 4, 1999, because he had promised his patient. Haskel Karp, that he would not let him die on the operating table.

Mining your Doily Ntwi? Dial 669-3535 Won 7 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. Sundays later from pneumonia and kidney failure. Karp's widow, Shirley, of Skokie. III., is suing Cooley, Dr. Domingo Liotta, the designer of the artificial heart, and St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital where the operation was performed. Cooley, called as an adverse witness, said at first Karp did not want a heart transplant but later agreed to one if an operation to correct his ailing heart failed. At that time. Cooley said, he had performed 17 heart transplant operations and worldwide, some 25 recipients of heart transplants were living. But Cooley said donors of hearts had been falling off in Houston and he proposed to Karp that if the heart operation failed he would use the experimental artificial heart to keep him alive until a human transplant could be found. John Holloway. an attorney for Mrs. Karp. asked Cooley if he told Karp that the artificial heart could cause damage to his body. Cooley replied that there is always damage, even with the heart-lung machine used in open heart surgery, and that surgeon must act in the patient's best interest. "No guarantees were made at all," he said. Karp signed a consent April 2, witnessed by his wife, Cooley said. The physician was asked what he said to Karp the night the consent form was signed. Cooley testified that Karp had been unable to work for six months prior to the operation and could not even brush his teeth without suffering pain.

Red Cross To Raise $815 For Rapid City The Gray County Chapter of the American Red Cross has been assigned a quota to help raise funds for the recent flood disaster in Rapid City, S.D. A quota of $5 million has been set by the national offices of the Red Cross. Gray County has been assessed 9115 for their share. Plans are now being made locally to raise the money, Mrs. Libby Shot well, executive secretary, said. "Few times in this century has the American Red Cross been faced with a catastrophe of the magnitude in Rapid City," E. Roland Harriman, chairman of the ARC, noted in a report to President Nixon. The Red Cross has budgeted over $21 million for disasters during the past two years, but has spent in excess of $37 million to provide relief for those suffering from the disasters. In case of a local disaster, Mrs. Shotwell noted, the Red Cross would help provide funds. The association did provide some money after the tornado struck Pampa in 1970 and has helped several area towns, including Miami. Surveys of the damage in the Rapid City area show 5,100 homes, trailers and small businesses were damaged or destroyed. Families affected and suffering loss in the disaster total 6,025. Report Shows More Doctors Now Enter Family Practice SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The family doctor is coming back strong among the nation's new generation of medical school graduates. "The reversal trend from specialized practice is clear," Dr. Carroll L. Witten of Louisville told an American Medical Association family practice session today. Ninety per cent of the University of Washington's last three medical school classes are entering family practice, said Dr. Edward J. Kowalewski of Baltimore. Witten reported the number of family practitioners in the nation dropped from 80,000 in 1947 to 59.000 in 1967 and has returned to 64,000. He said the recovery rate will speed up in future years. The decline in family practitioners developed with a surge to specialized practice after World War II. The sharp increase in medi- cal graduates choosing family instead of specialized practice reflects both a public need and demand and a commitment in the young medical generation, said Kowalewski, head of the division of family practice at the University of Maryland. He said 126 of the 240 students in Maryland's last two classes are choosing to be family physicians. Kowalewski said today's students demand courses in coun- selling, a craft the present mature family physician learned by experience. "I believe counselling starts with a baby's checkup visit to your office a month after birth, "he said. "That's when you start diet counselling to prevent coronary disease, diabetes, and obesity." SAN ANTONIO, fa. (AP) With typical strrtghtforwafdnm. Mexican President Luis Echeverria assured Texas businessmen that it would be worth their money to Invest in his country. Some businesamen who met him during Ms visit here Monday reportedly expressed reservations about Mexico's political situation. But Echeverria said afterward that he simply told them to "come to Mexico and see for themselves." It was an often used approach as the President met with a broad spectrum of Mexican- Americans as well as the businessmen. He invited a group of mostly Mexican-American demonstrators who picketed him over alleged "political prisoners" in Mexico to pursue the matter themselves by visiting his country and even touring the prisoners, officials said. Echeverria met at length both with the demonstrators' spokesmen and with leaders of a new Texas Mexican-American political party, Raza Unida-"UnitedRace." The data Unida group discussed a variety of issues with him, including economic development of Mexican-American areas in Texas. Officials said the President agreed to send Pedro de Coster, Mexico's director of industry, to Crystal City in Southwest Texas to study the possibilities of providing technical assistance for Mexican-American efforts to establish possibly an agricultural products processing plant. The Raza Unida Party was founded in Crystal City about two years ago and now controls the school system and city government there. A Mexican government official said Echeverria's meeting with Texas businessmen who may be interested in investing Arraignments Set Gray County Judge Don Cain has set next Monday, Tuesday And Wednesday for criminal case arraignments in county court. Ten such cases each day have been placed on the docket. hi Mexico was well received and that the group showed a great deal of interest. The most enthusiasm came from bankers who indicated an Interest in the possibility of financing new factories and plants under the already established border development project, the official said. Manufacturing operations are under way at several border points in the project, commonly known as the "in-bond program." It involves U.S. plants establishing on the Mexican side of the border and employing Mexican labor, with the stipulation that the products must be exported to the United States. Economic development also was among the topics aired when Texas Gov. Preston Smith met with Echeverria early Monday before the President began a hectic day of official functions. Smith said they discussed the Texas International Trade Office in Mexico City, the first such office established out of the state, "and how it is furthering the good relations between our two countries." The governor also said he and President Echeverria agreed It would be a good idea to establish a committee including representatives of Mexico along with Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, to develop better working relations between Mexico and the border states. Smith said he would begin working on the project at once through the Texas Good Neighbor Commission. President and Mrs. Echeverria arrived here Sunday night from visits in Washington, New York and Chicago and left for Los Angles Monday afternoon on the final leg of their U.S. trip. In San Antonio, a cheering crowd of up to 3,500 swarmed to HemisFair Plaza, site of the 1968 world fair, to welcome Echeverria as he dedicated a unique Mexican Cultural Institute.
