Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LBJ felled by heart attack .JoJinson takes presidential oath cfler assDSsmotion of Jahn F. Kennedy By G.ARTU JONTS SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) The body of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson will be flown to Washington to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda and receive the final tribute o[ the United States. Johnson, whose dreams of a Society were dampened by a war in Asia, died Monday of a heart attack at 64. Johnson'5 cotlin ivii] be car- ried on a caisson in a procession to Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon. A cere- mony will be held in the ro- tunda. Funeral services inll be held Thursday in Na- tional City Clirisiian Church, after which the body will be re- turned to Texas for burial in the family cemetery of the LBJ Ranch. Before Ihe body of the SSlfi president is flown to ton. it will lie in stale from 1 p.m. EST today until 9 a.m. Wednesda3- at the LBJ Library in Austin, Tex. There will be a lull guard of honor. Johnson was pronounced dead at p.m. EST Monday aboard his private plane at San Antonio International Airport. Johnson rose Jrom simple Texas rooLs to both houses of Congress, to the powerful post of Senate Democratic leader which earned him the reputa- tion as a masterful politician, to the vice-presidency and finally to the presidency afler the as- sassination of John F. Kennedy in 1553. As the first southerner to hold the presidency since Andrew Jackson, his accomplishments in the domestic fields of civil rights, social security, educa- tion and bousing were highly praised. Johnson inherited the presidency, he inherited the war m Indochina. Following his election as cliief executive in 1S34 by a landslide margin, he greatly expanded the U.S. in- volvement in Indochina and op- position to the war mounted at home. The war eventually was a major factor in his dramatic announcement la March of J9C3 that he would not seek re-elec- tion. On Monday, 51 minutes before he was pronounced dead, Secret Sendee agents found Johnson slumped on the bedroom floor of his ranch in Johnson City and began a desperate trip by air to Brooke Army Medicbl Centre here in hopes of saving his life. Col. L. R. Hieger, chief of pa- thology at Brooke, performed an autopsy on Johnson's body late Monday night and listed the official cause of death as coronary thrombosis. Hieger's autopsy showed thst the former president had severe coronary artery disease, with complete two of three major arteries to the heart. A third artery was about 60 per cent occluded. The former President had a history of heart trouble dating to 1355. He suffered what was tenned as a major heart attack in April, 1972, and was m hospi- tal with chest pains last July.
