terest to have that informationin bis It doenst preclude nls hav ing been a nice The most common eupnernisrn for cause of death is died after a long ii Iness We all understand that the English language translation of died after a long illness is usually long and painful it should be so stated in that personss obituary whether the family wants it there or not It increases our awareness of the problem and of the urgency for fin ding a cure The other imprecise phrase often used in an obituary says the person died of natural causes causes I suppose all causes of death it natural a opposed to super natural but what exactly does the mean Today in my newspaper theres an article about the death of a 91year old H says she died of causes associated with old When someone dies at age 9i I guess its not necessary to go into anv fur ther details the tnat comes to mind What are re causes associated with old age1 Pneumonia is sometimes listed as a cause of death even though it is often a secondary problem The primary problem is ignored out of some false sense of delicacy Died of pulmonary a pnrase I see in the newspaper front of me to is merely another attempt to soften the blow with language The imprecision with which causes of death are reported usually reflect the wishes of the family of the For some reason a lot of families prefer that the cause of death not be made public if it was They act as though o the disease is a disgrace Wnitever the it is not a newspapers tion to make people feel either better or about Most families prefer to conceal the fact of Suicide is usually to be the act of a in person and no firriily Aants tnat associated with a relative That doesnt lessen a obligation to report a when it knows for certain here was For some reason that isnt clear to a heart attack seerns to be the most socialiy acceptable way to go died suddenly yesterday morning o atack s a cause of death approved for the obituary notice by most family Im not suggesting an obituary notice should dwell for long on the cause but it should be part of every persons death notice whether family members want it or If we were ail more manner designed to avoid those causes When I Id like the newspaper to be straightforward about what got rne My first choice would be An drew the died sud denly yesterday in perfect hington today Gary Hart looks for a new image By fJOMALU

Portraying himself as the can didate of new Hart surprised many people last year by finishing second to Mondale in a nomination campaign that continued to the con After upset victories In the New Hampshire primary and Maine Hart had Mondale on the roptK when the campaign moved But the former vice president fought back and he scored points dur ing a campaign debate in Atlanta when he turned U Hart and When I hear about your new ideas Im reminded of the Wheres the beef With that Mondale tried to raise doubts among voters on whether there really was much that was new about Harts But the question also rnay have pin pointed another Hart the fact the voters werent sure who he a problem compounded by the confusion over his birthdate and the fact he shortened his name from Hartpence tollart As Hart looks ahead to he seerns determined to deal very early with the Wheres the beefV In addition to the flow of issue aides are trying to encourage biographical articles about the senator which they hope will give voters a clearer image of who he is and how his ideas But Hart faces other problems as he looks He must soon decide whether to run for reelection to the Senate next year or bow out and con centrate n a presidential A major issue if he tries for a third Senate term is certain to be his presidential One of the first questions he would be asked is whether he would be too busy cam paigning for president to be an effec tive senator for The betting is that Hart will not run for the but he says he will not make up his mind until the Christmas Hes expected to announce his

about the pro SDI spot isnt just the Its the The 30second commer cial has already been seen in Washington and the conservative coalition is planning to air it national It is just a small child sized part of the campaign to convince the American public that the President is that a Star Wars defense is too important to bargain away for something silly like nucleararms After all it doesnt matter how
