(AP Wire- photo) Cites Need For Arteriosclerosis Research DeBakey Will Do No More Heart Transplants By JIM BARLOW HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) -- A pioneer in heart transplant s'ir- gery says he expects to do no more of the operations unless there is a major breakthrough in medicine. Instead, medical s c i e n c e must rely on research in prevention of heart disease, Dr. Michael DeBakey said in a rare inter view. "We've gone through (he experience and we know what that experience proves, DeBa- key said. "Unless there were some radical changes taking place in terms of new knowl- edge, there's no reason to ex pect it to be any different. S why do it? DeBakey performed II hear transplants at the Texas Meti cal Center here, and only tw patients were long-term surv vors. "One died at the end at fou years of chronic rejection, r said. "The other one is still li ing. after S'A yeans. True, he' doing well. We don't know why "But that's a small yield cor siriering the effort you put int it." DeBnkcy said heart Iran plantation is limited by th New Car Buyers Are Finding It Costs More To Spend Less DETROIT (AP- -- New car buyers are victims of an apparent paradox these days: It costs more to spend less. That's because luxury, op tion-packed automobiles have escaped the price boosts that hit the smaller, less-expensive cars. A two-door Cadillac Eldorado with popular options, for example, costs $9,985 -- only 3 per cent more than it did four years ago. And that includes extra safety anil emission control features that weren't available at the start of (he 1971 model year. A twcMloor suhcompact Ford Pinto with popular options $2,778 -- almost 28 per cent more expensive than the $2,179 it cost four years ago. Last year the same Pinto cost $2,220. Overall, car prices have risen at about one - tenth the 2'1 per cent rate of all rfilnil products between October 1970 and April of this year, according lo the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. Imports have jumped in price even more than the American small cars because of higher inflation abroad and revaluation of the dollar in 1971. A typical Volkswagen Beetle cost $1,875 at new - model introduction in the fall of 1970 -- $300 cheaper than the Pinto. Today it's up 46 per cent -- to 52.739. The general pricing strategy employed by automakers during the period has been to limit big percentage increases to smaller cars. That is where the demand is and thus the profit. In 1973, small cars, domestic and imported, comprised 40 per cent of the 11.4 million units sold. Small car deman reached a peak in January a the height of the fuel shortag scare, capturing 24 per cent o the market before leveling o to 48 per cent during the las several months. Auto executives predict th small car market share will av erage 51 per cent at the end o the current year and could h up to 65 per cent within th next two years or so. The increases in small ca prices cover all companies. Industry analysts say tha pricing pattern is the result o two major factors -- price con trqls and unrealistlcally Io\ prices of imports during th early 1970s. The auto companies were un der controls throughout most this four-year period. As a .. suit, one analyst explains, the were limited in how high the could raise average prices. The more small car prices in creased, the less big car price could go up without exceedin Cost of Living Council pric ceilings. At the same time, the analy? said, the price of imports i 1971 was "unreali.slically lov and distorted" because of a imbalance in foreign ciirrenc, exchange rates. Each of the major U.S. auto makers has raised prices thi model year three or mor times. Controls were remove from the industry last Decem her. In addition to inflation, th companies say recent increase* are a result of stricter govern ment emission and safety regu Intions which have forced th firms to add costly equipment. Bill Macy Becomes Overnight Star As Walter In 'Maude' LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bill Macy was flat on his back in his one-room apartment in New York recovering from an injury received in "0 Calcutta!" The telephone rang. It was his agent, asking him to audition for a part in a new Broadway show. "And M i s s Reardon'Drinks Little." "If you're a professional actor, your head is geared toward producing," .=aid Macy. explaining at some length how he came to be Walter on "Maude." "I'd hurt myself in '0 Calcutta!' doing a leap a year earlier and the pain had come back. The phone rings, and I'm not about to tell a producer about my injury." Macy said he read for the part and was called hack two more limes before he got it. After three months on Broadway, the s h o w went on the road, with a final stop in Los Angeles. . In his hotel r o o m in Pittsburgh he saw "All in the Family" for the firsl time. "I called ray agent in New York and told him that when we got to Los Angeles I wanted to play a part in 'All in the Family.'" he said. "He laughed at me and said, 'Yeah, and who do you know oni Ule show?' He started naming! people and when he said N'or-iweeK old pupny was nan Lear I told him to stop." [jlso. Norman I.ear, executive producer of "All in the Family,' had .seen Macy several times on Broadway and had written him letters of appreciation. He also had given Macy a walk-on part in "The Night They Raided Minsky's," a movie filmed in New York. Macy got a part -- seven lines as a cop. A f t e r that, Lear created 1 "Maude" and wrote the part of Walter with Macy in mind. So. at 51. after a long and haphazard career as an actor, never m a k i n g more than §175 :for a role, Macy suddenly became an overnight star. This weekend ABC's "Rea soner Report" will take i tongue-in-cheek look at the booming Watergate industry.

Puppy Stolen Bob Berthelson of Hwy. 68 west in Tontitown reported to Washington County denuty sheriffs Wednesday the theft of an Irish setter puppy. Berthelson s a i d the Iwo week old need to find donors who a: r oung, healthy and "killed in very special way. "That limits it right away. S it can never be an answer I the major portion of heart di ease," he said. "This mean you've got to look for som. thing else to solve the problei f heart disease. Obvious! that's in the direction of solvin the problems of arterioscle rosis." Arteriosclerosis is a generi term- for a number of chroni conditions affecting the arterie bringing blood to the heart. DeBakey said he still is con ducting experiments toward je velopmont of an artificid heart, but he pointed out ther were actually' two differen kinds of mechanical heart aid that could be implanted. "You just can't lump the. jit together." he said. "The are used for different purpose "One type is that which r' places the whole heart. That still an experimental proc dure. "The other category is thoi, which are used to primaru support or assist the circulatio temporarily -- a number hours or days or as much «, maybe a week. That has bee progressive and we actually d use that clinically," DeBake said. Appeals Court Ruling Upsels Network Plans NEW YORK (AP) -- Th three major television network say a federal appeals court rii ing freezing the prime-time ac cess rule is forcing a hurrie reshuffling of the fall progran lineup. The networks say some of th programs may be shifted t other nights, bumping shows a! reads' scheduled for thos nights. Still other program may not debut until January a a result of Tuesday's ruling bj a three-judge panel in the U.S Court of Appeals here. The controversy centers on the 1971 access rule limiting a network lo no more than three hours of programming in the »ak evening viewing hours be tween 7 and 11 p.m. Late last year the Federa Communications Commission said it would modify the rule allowing the networks to use al our prime-lime hours on Satur day and Sunday as well as an additional half-hour during th week to televise a documenta y, public affairs program or children's special. In February he FCC said it planned to im- Jlement the access rule :hanges this September. The National Association ol ndependent Television Produc- rs and Distributors filed suit o block the effective date. The ppeals court agreed that revis- ng the ' prime time rules this pear would cause serious harm o independent producers, who sell syndicated shows to sta- ions anxious to fill the broad- ast time barred to the net ·orks. The court said no hange can be made at least nfil September, 1975. The ruling means that the etworks will have to eliminate ne hour of fall programming cheduled for the 7 to 8 p.m. unday night slot as well as the ·eek night half-hour.

We can never hope to adequately express our thanks to the many wonderful people who have responded. Coupons arrive each day from all over the "Lower 48." Some grade schools and women's clubs are even making us their special projects! Many people enclose letters of support with their coupons, and we are trying to answer them as soon as possible. Although the coupon drive had been started in our village back in 1973, the total number collected was only about 8,000. Now. thanks to your readers, we we have collected nearly half a million! General Mills has been most generous in granting us an extension on collections until August, 1975 -- and our goal is 20 million coupons! This will not pay for the entire gymnasium, but it will contribute $100,000 toward the final goal. Again, our thanks to you and all your wonderful readers -we are really overwhelmed 'by the generosity of all these people. At the end of our project, the village of Galena will have a gymnasium for students and villagers alikel -- Officers Of The Galena Sports Association.

(AP) -United Presbyterians have turned down proposals to eliminate a masculine slant from the church's rites of worship. Delegates to the denomina- t i o n ' s governing assembly voted -Wednesday to reject a long list of proposed revisions designed to get rid of phraseology "with a male sexist tendency." "Nit-picking and tampering." the Rev. William Blair of Birmingham, Ala. called it. in moving successfully to throw out changes proposed by a committee on worship. More than 250 of them involved removing male generic terms such as "he," "men," and "brothers," and substituting inclusive words such as "we," "people," and "neighbor." In its report, the worship committee, headed by the Rev. Lewis B r i n e r of Kalamazoo, Mich., said it found "no conscious or malicious intent to promote male chauvinism" in the worship book. But the present usages "may contribute, however unintentionally, to furthering that regrettable cause," the committee added. ppponents objected to the anticipated $110,000 cost of the recommended changes and said the revisions could torpedo a planned reunion with a sister southern branch, .the Presbyterian Church U.S. "It's Just · bunch of words," lid Debbie Hosey, a Washington, D.C., youth delegate. She said the Usue iwas too trivial for concern. However, Sally Spaulding of San Diego, Calif., said that in attitudes about men and women, "our thinking is perpetuated by language more than anything else." The proposed revisions did not alter male references to the deity as "Father," but concentrated mostly on male pronouns and terms used to refer to all people. "Most of the difficulties were insinuated into the English rendering of Scripture by the translations," the committee said, nothing t h a t the original Greek text usually does not use the masculine terms. Personal Income Up WASHINGTON (AP) -Americans' personal income jumped in May by $10.6 billion -- the largest increase so far this year, the Commerce Department announced today. The department said personal income increased virtually across the board, with the exception of farmers. Their income declined for the fifth straight month to a level of $23.9 billion, or 26 per cent below what it was in December. The overall rise in personal income was: the fourth consecutive monthly increase. It art.flunted to about a one per cent rise. The total at a seasonally adjusted annual rate stood at $1,121 billion. All major groups in the private wages and salaries category advanced, and most manufacturing industries industries showed increases. Local Man To Compete For Parachute Title TAHLEQUAH.

The commission also postponed a public hearing on the application of Southwestern Electric Power Company and the Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. for a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need for the plant until the Oklahoma group has time to study the reply to information about the plant. The Arkansas Department of Pollution Control and Ecology has issued a 19 point environmental impact statement challenging studies by SWEPCO and Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation. Among the items challenged are effects on water, quality, downstream from the plant: The proposed location is on Little Flint Creek, the necessity of a second unit by 1982. proper disposal of waste sludge and the efficiency of the electrostatic precipitator, which controls emissions. The Oklahoma group filed a petition with the PSC on June 10. seeking to intervene in the matter. The original hearing was set for July 8. No new hearing dat» has been set.
