VOLUME 02 NUMMER 205 nj CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, TUI KSDAY, OCTOBER .'ti, 1074 CAPTORS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Doctors: Nixon May Be Bleeding LONO MEACH. Calif. (AIU Former President Nixon’s doc tors said Thursday they are studying Nixon’s condition to determine whether he is suffering from slow internal bleeding. Nixon remained on the critical list, and “the possibility still exists for further complications.” the doctors said. Ors. John Lungren and Eldon Hickman said their suspicions were raised that Nixon could bi* bleeding because of a drop in Nixon’s hemoglobin count overnight. They said this could be “normal hemodilution.” but added “We are keeping in mind that this is a slow oozing of blood into the retroperitonael area < Tile lining behind the abdomen i. “It is still premature to offer a prognosis at this time.” the doctors said in a written statement read to newsmen. Excellent Spirits The doctors noted that Nixon’s mental attitude and snirits are excellent” and he is “alert to all that is going on around him.” “Hemodilution” is dilution of the normal oxygen in the blood The doctors said Nixon was given one additional unit of “packed red blood cells” on Wednesday. He received three units of blood — a unit is about a pint —■ on Tuesday after going into shock from internal bleeding that followed blood clot surgery The doctors raid the hemoglobin was down “one-ha!f gram” since Wednesday night “and the significance of this change is being evaluated this morning.” Nixon spent a “more restful night” and vital signs — blood pressure, pulse and heart beat — were stable, the doctors said Brief Visits Thev said his wife and two daughters, Tricia and Julie. were spending most of the day and night in Nixon s hospital suite and were visiting him briefly even- hour “He remains under intensive observation by physicians and critical care nurses.” the doctors said. Nixon is still off anticoagulant drugs which had been thinning his blood to prevent further clotting. The drugs led to the poslsurgical bleeding. Nixon lapsed into vascular shock following urgent surgery for phlebitis on Tuesday. Doctors worked for three hours to restore stable blood circulation. Nixons former presidential news .secretary. Ronald Ziegler. told newsmen, meanwhile, that t h e 61-ycar-old ex-President came dost1 to death miring the postoperative emergency. “No Doubt” “There :> no doubt that we almost lost President Nixon yesterday afternoon.” said Ziegler Ziegler denied speculation that Nixon - whose illness became more aggravated after he was forced to resign the pred-dency in disgrace Aug ti had lost the will to live. and that his psychologically depressed state was weakening him “I know the former President has not lost the will to live,’ Ziegler replied “I think he has viewed the entire hospital st.u with a gr< it deal of courage He’s a man of great strength and courage .md he’ll pull out of it President Ford was campaigning in nearby I/is Vngelts Thursday, but a White Hous« spokesman 'aul Ford had no plans to visit Nixon The spokesman said Ford was watching Nixon condition closely, however I off ii if* ti i buckle A wise dairyman hung out a sign • Drink milk I 1 Udder Uncola.    a"    ’    ’ Israelis Shell jjyfcj, (jg Palestinians n Leba non Grenades, End Siege My United Press International Israeli gunboats bombarded Palestinian targets in .southern lebanon Thursday, and Lf.
