Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 25 Happiness... is getting a right answer at New York City's PS 12, a school which specializes in turning problem students into good students with the help of MIND (Methods of Intellectual a self-testing system utilizing techniques.

(CP) At least two United States congressmen and one senator may reintroduce legislation in tne 94th Congress calling for total un- conditional amnesty for Viet- nam war exiles, a Washing- ton, D.C clergyman said Sat- urday. Rev. Barry Lynn, said at an amnesty reunion at Mount Carmel College that Rep Bella Abzug (Democrat-New York) and Rep Paul McCloskey (Republican- California) have already in- dicated they will reintroduce such bills. Mr. Lynn also said that Sen. Philip Hart (Democrat-Mich- igan) is in the process of working on legislation. "I don't know what the final shape of the legislation will be, but I expect it will call for unconditional amnesty. He said that he did not ex- pect the unconditional move- ment to draw significant sup- port from newly-elected senators and congressmen. "In general, the persons who were elected this year were more he said "Many want to cut military spending, but that's not necessarily related to the issue of unconditional amnesty." "And I don't anticipate the president will do much to cor- rect the faults of his own pro- gram NOTICE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE HOLIDAY SCHEDULE REFUSE COLLECTION RESIDENTIAL DATE COLLECTION DECEMBER 21 Regular Monday DECEMBER 23 Regular Tuesday DECEMBER 24 Regular Wednesday DECEMBER 30 Regular Thursday plus Monday DECEMBER 31 Regular Friday plus Tuesday JANUARY 2 Regular Wednesday plus Thursday COMMERCIAL DECEMBER 24 Central Business District Larger Commercial Outlets DECEMBER 26 RESTAURANTS SANITARY LANDFILL HOURS DECEMBER 25 Closed DECEMBER 26 Closed JANUARY 1 Closed Mad Bomber abandons hope of finding better world WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) It is 18 years this month since George Metesky explod- ed his last bomb, and closed out a sinister career as New York City's elusive Mad Bomber He planted it under a seat in the old Brooklyn Paramount theatre, and seven persons were injured. "I always had a feeling that some day somebody would knock on my Metesky recalls "I think I was getting verv tired toward the end." The knock on the door came at midnight Jan. 21, 1957, when Metesky was arrested at his home here by New York officers and a Waterbury police captain. That was less than two months after the Dec 2, 1956, Paramount ex- plosion, the last of 32 bombs he planted over a 16-year period Metesky was sent to Matteawan state hospital for the criminal insane in Beacon, N.Y., for 17 years Last Two-heart man 'doing well9 New York Times Service NEW YORK Dr Chris- tian N Barnard said Monday that a 58-year-old man in whom he implanted a second heart from a 10-year-old girl three weeks ago "is doing very, very well" without evidence of the rejection phenomenon and that both hearts were pumping effec- tively and independently. Yet, for unknown reasons, a wide gap that previously ex- isted between the rates of the two hearts has now narrowed, the cardiac transplant pioneer said in a telephone interview from his home in Cape Town, South Africa The patient, Ivan Taylor, is believed to be the first person to live with two hearts. After the surgery, the girl's heart pumped at 120 beats a minute and the man's own heart pumped at 40 beats a minute When Dr Barnard observed the heart rates last week, he said, the girl's was 100 and the man's 80. Dr. Bar- nard did not check Monday, a South African holiday, which he said he spent at home with his family. When asked why the rates of the two hearts had become so much closer, Dr Barnard said "I'm not sure it may be because there is a certain amount of recovery of the old heart." He added that he did not know what, if any, significance to attach to the altered rates of the hearts beating in Taylor's chest. "We're planning to recatheterize (slip a tube into both hearts through a vein or artery) the week after next. Then we'll work out (physiologically) exactly what's happening in the two Dr Barnard said. Taylor's heart had become so badly scarred from the effects of diabetes, arteriosclerosis and heart at- tacks that he was described as having developed terminal congestive heart failure. All he could do was sit up in bed or in a chair, and to do that he had to breathe supplemental oxygen through a mask. Now, Dr. Barnard said, Taylor "is off all therapy for heart failure He does not need digitalis, diuretics, ox- ygen or other supportive measures that doctors rely upon in treating this common condition Hov.ever, he does take drugs to combat the im- munologic rejection phenomenon1. However, during the five- hour transplant operation Nov. 25, Taylor suffered a stroke which paralyzed his left arm and left leg and tem- porarily distorted- his vision Taylor's mental capacity and ability to communicate were not affected by the stroke, which Dr. Barnard said could have occurred during any type of heart surgery. "The only thing that is not clearing so well is his hemiplegia (paralysis) He is not able to walk around yet without Dr. Bar- nard said. He added quickly: "If he didn't have this hemiplegia, I would consider sending him home in.about one week." Though in some respects Taylor is able to do less than he did before the operation because of the stroke Dr. Bar- nard said, "of course, he's much more comfortable. He doesn't have the distress of heart failure- Friday, Dec 13, was the first anniversary of his release. "I was in hopes of finding a better says Metesky, now 71 "But there's no better world It's worse, if anything, than when I went in." However, Metesky says he has overcome much of the bit- terness that prompted him to wage his own war against society His bombs, planted in such public places as Radio City music hall and Grand Central station injured 22 persons. For that he said he is sorry. No one was killed. For that he takes credit "I made them small so there would be less chance of somebody getting Metesky says "I came out with great ex- Metesky says, referring to his release a year ago "Since then we've had this Watergate. And every time I go to the supermarket, the prices have gone up. Every one of the politicians is just looking out for his own interest. I wouldn't say every one, but many of them." He describes his days as busy ones, and said he has lit- tle time to brood on the past He is writing a book on his life with a collaborator, and ex- pects it eventually to be made into a movie And he takes care of his sister Mae, 76, a semi-invalid with whom he has lived since the deaths of their parents. A Grade 9 dropout, Metesky grew familiar with explosives during two hitches in the Far East with the U S marines in the 1920s. On Sept 5, 1935, Metesky was overcome by gas while cleaning a generator in a New York plant where he worked for the United Electric and Power Co., later absorbed by Consolidated Edison. Metesky developed an ad- vanced case of tuberculosis, which he attributed to the accident He claimed he sought compensation or medical expenses, but was rebuffed. This festered in his mind, and in time he became the Mad Bomber, in an effort to focus attention on his grievances. As for the future, the Mad Bomber of other years thought only a moment before replying- "I'd like to get a nice one- family house, which I hope to get if everything turns out all right. Outside of that, I'm pretty well satisfied. I've been where I wanted to go, done what I wanted to do. All I want now is peace and quiet."
