10 · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thurs., Sept. 19, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS After Successful Surgery Twins Sleep In Separate Cribs . r ; PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Separated by surgery which 'took 6% hours, Siamese twin girls from the Dominican Republic slept in separate cribs for the first time in their 13 months of life. "I know of no reason why they won't live," Dr. C. Everett Koop said after the long operation carried out on Wednesday by 23 surgeons and nurses at Children's Hospital. "They were two healthy litlle girls together.' We have every reason to believe they'll be two healthy little girls apart," said Koop, who headed the surgical [c said not only are both O expected to live, but that they should lead very normal lives and even bear their own children. Clara and Altagracia Rodriguez, who had been joined since birth at the pelvis and abdomen, were given their own complete sets of internal organs during the surgical operation. In the initial recovery stage, Clara and Altagracia were placed beds, but they will be treated in the same bee later to prevent possible psy chological trauma resulting rom separation after living as one being up until now, hospital spokesman Shirley Bonnem aidJ She said the tots were doing 'extremely \vel|." Mrs. Farida Rodriguez and her twins came here 11 days ago from a farm outside Santo Domingo. When her daughters were born on Aug. 12, 1973, Mrs. Rodriguez said she was told they would die. Other doctors told her they would live into adulthood but could never be separated. But Mrs. Rodriguez's cousin vorked for an American woman in Puerto Rico, who told her sister in Pennsylvania about he Siamese twins. Dianna Zim- loch of Warrington, Pa., arranged for the operation and icr church raised the funds. Mrs. Rodriguez, whose husband remained at home, has three other children. The · hospital said medical case histories show only 24 successful Siamese twin separations, with the first recorded in 1600. Senate Panel Seeks Stronger Review 0!

That county has the last remaining application before the board. An hour has been set aside Friday morning to hear delega- ions wanting to hold community college elections, but the Union County delegation apparently will be the only one present. · · · · The only other active group recently has been in Monroe County. Richard Dedman of Brinkley, chairman of the coun- .y's steering committee, said agencies more closely watchec by Congress. Baker, who conducted his own investigation of possible CIA involvement in Watergate, charged that agency has successfully conducted 'the most effective stonewalling of the entire Watergate episode." At present,Van, ad, : hoc panel of V senior members , of', the Armed Service and Foreign Relations committees of the House and Senate is charged with oy.erseeing CIA activities. The Baker-Weicker bill would not replace the present ar- nomic lies with the Soviets. Such a policy might revive cold war atmosphere of postwar years, he said.

If elections fail in either St. Francis or Union counties, the Monroe County application will be reactivated, Dedman said. Arkansas now has five communities colleges. Three o them were created under a libi eralized funding law enacted by the Arkansas General Assembly last year. The legislative Joint Interim Committee on Education, which had expressed some concern about too rapid growth of the institutions, recommended this summer that the board permit only two more new colleges this biennium. That is all the current budget would allow. ACORN Raps Freeway Planning.

"We are now moving toward i understanding (with the .So- iet Union) that should sig- ificantly diminish t h e ob- :acles to emigration and case :ie · hardship of prospective migrants," Kissinger said. He said those -who demand internal changes (in the Soviet Union) must be the pre- ondition for the pursuit of a elaxation of tensions with the ioviet Union" are wrong. "Our view is different. We ..hall insist on responsible international behavior by the Soviet Union and use it as the primary index of our relationship ..
