San Francisco Flight 227 had originated in New York with stops at Cleveland Chi cago and Denver Salt Lake was its final landing before San Francisco The first indication that any thing might have been wrong was when I felt this large surge of power as if the pilot was trying to get extra power up Sullivan said at Hill Air Force Base hospital His face was splotchy red A days growth of beard was mixed with tiny burn scabs looked around just before the plane came to a stop and f saw a curly cue of flame cut across the rear of the cabin like the fuselage had been cracked open Sullivan said everyone sal still until the plane came to rest Then there was a mad dash for theemergency exits Bodies laying in the aisles and crammed in front of exits led Police Capt Don G Fergu son to conclude hysteria had taken hold There was panic Sullivan said There was no considera tion for other people no consid eration whatsoever They all started to knock out the emer gency exit windows and smoke started to fill the plane There was an exit right be hind my seat but everyone was cramming to get out I dashed for the other tide but so many people were squeezing out I had to wait my turn Suddenly there was a flash of light and dense black smoke enveloped us Sullivan finally jumped through the exit into the left wing then to the ground An airlines spokesman said a count of bodies in the city morgue confirmed 41 were re covered from the airliner He said the airlines had revised the number of persons aboard from 90 to 91 e on Ik way to victory FT GORDON Ga AP Doctors watched for any change Saturday in Dwjght D Eisen howers condition that could alter their belief that the former president will recover from his second heart attack and may play golf again From the evidence of his phy sicians Drs Thomas Mattingly and Harry Harper the fivestar general seemed to be on his way toward another victory Eisenhower 75 appeared to be taking in stride the diagnosis revealed Friday that the chest pains that sent him to the hospi tal from the Augusta Golf Club Tuesday signaled his second heart attack since 1955 Art Army spokesman said in a statement at pm Friday night that Eisenhower spent a very comfortable evening He went to sleep early having spent the earlier part of the eve ning reading Eisenhower is expected to have a visit Saturday from Dr Paul Dudley White the heart specialist who gained national fame when he assisted in the treatment of Eisenhower 10 years ago White said he would stop off to pay a courtesy call on Eisen hower on his way from Pensa cola Fla to his home in Bos ton Despite age and previous heart attacks the feel ing around the sprawling hospi tal was one of optimism Mattingly who treated Eisen hower after the former presi dents 1955 heart attack and headsthe medical team here expressed belief Eisenhower has passed the critical peri od He also said that with the type of heart attack Eisenhower suf fered a myocardial infarction there has to be a certain amount of a guarded prognosis while he is going through the period when the complications usually occur Now said Mattingly hes gone through at least a good half of that first week which he said the doctors regarded as the period most likely to be asso ciated with complications Another reason the doctors are optimistic Harper said was that sometimes its better to have a heart attack in your 70s than in your 40s or 50s Harper an Augusta heart spe cialist said that as blood ves sels narrow with age new ones are created Occasionally he said an old person can have a painless heart attack because nature has already new blood ves sels to compensate for it And for this reason an older person may tolerate a heart attack bet ter than a young person The doctors indicated that as of now Eisenhower would prob ably stay at the Ft Gordon hos pital for two weeks and then be transferred to the big Walter Reed Army Hospital in Wash ington The newspaper that makes all North lowans
