Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard Pg. 20 Wed., July 3. 1968 Latest Heart Transplant Satisfactory HOUSTON, Tex. (AF) - The condition of the world's 24th human heart transplant patient was listed as satisfactory today as doctors watched for change in his new heart, which was artificially nourished for 24 hours while a recipient was sought. George Henry De Bord, who received the heart in a two-hour operation Tuesday at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, was conscious and alert today and his vital signs were stable, a hospital spokesman said. De Bord remained on a respirator. "His doctors at this stage are hopeful," the spokesman said. "But of course it's still touch and go." DeBord, 46, a contractor from Helotes, Tex., near San Antonio, was the fifth person to receive a human heart at St. Luke's. He received the heart of Maxie Elwood Anderson, 50, of Lufkin, Tex. Anderson, the oldest donor in any of the heart transplants a St. Luke's, was transferred to the hospital Monday suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Doctors said Anderson's brain waves were flat for 24 hours ant the doctors kept the heart and lungs attached to a respiratoi while they searched for a red pient. Dr. Denton A. Cooley, head ol the St. Luke's heart transplanl team, said, "so much depends on the condition of the heart rather than the age of the do nor. The donor's heart was perfectly normal." Plane Hijacker Described As Cuban Exile MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — The pistol-waving hijacker who forced a Northwest Airlines plane carrying 86 passengers to fly him to Havana Monday was identified today as a Cuban exile. The State Department's Miami office said the hijacker had been identified as Mario Velazquez. But a government spokesman said the FBI had not determined which of several Cuban exiles of that name staged the hijacking. The Chicago Tribune said federal investigators had found that a Mario Velazquez arrived in Florida last July and came to Chicago where he was issued an alien ID card on July 7, 1967. An FBI spokesman in Chicago would neither confirm nor deny the Tribune account. Within hours after the hijacking, the Tribune said FBI agents were checking on Velazquez, going first to the Mont Clare Hotel in the uptown section where he had lived since last July. The investigators were told he had left without checking out, the account said. The Miami Herald quoted the manager of the Mont Clare as saying, "The man was obviously so homesick it was eating him up." The Herald said Velazquez left a wife and two sons in Oriente Province of Cuba to come to the United States. It said that before he left Chicago he told his few acquaintances of strong feelings of despondency. Capital Quote By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "There is no justification for the death penalty. It cheapens life. Its injustices and inhumanity raise basic questions about our institutions and purpose as a people."—Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark, testifying in support of a bill to abolish the penalty.
