(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) Fetus given blood in new operation NEW YORK (AP) Doctors at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine reported yesterday they performed a complete blood transfusion of a fetus recently by exposing the head, neck and left arm and then replacing the 22-week-old fetus. However, soon after the an- nouncement, the mother deliv- ered the baby, the hospital said. Because of its age, a spokesman said, the chances of survival were poor. Without the opera- tion, however, the baby would have died in the uterus. Before the doctors described lire operation as the e a r 1 i est complete exchange transfusion ever performed on a fetus suffering from severe Rh blood disease and the first one done by using the main artery of the neck to perform the transfusion. Dr. Sheldon H. Cherry, assist- ant clinical professor of obste- trics and gynecology, said a 22- ..-eek-old fetus is about six to eight inches long, with a head the size of an orange. The ca- rotid artery in the neck would about the size of a telephone vire. Through the hospital spokes- man, Cherry said the operation was still significant even though t apparently led to the earlj Cherry identified the mother as Marie Coope, 33, of Brent- wocd, N.Y. He said she and her lusband; Herbert G. Coope, lave two other young children but that her last pregnancy failed when the fetus died of Rh negative blood disease. Earthquake cracks Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Kara Wen- sel, age 10, of Tucson, Ari- zona, for her question: Do earthquake cracks ever close? Right now, scientists are very interested in the restless move m e n t s of the earth's crust. In the last few years, research teams have gathered new evidence that our planet's geography is not nearly as set- tled as thought it was. Some of the zones being investigated are deep crevices in the ocean floors. Others are cracks and fissures in the continents. The ones in earthquake zones re- veal a lot about the gradual changes of the earth's geo- graphy. A tear major earthquake may a crack in the ground. perhaps many miles long and deeper than ten feet. The top of the crevice may form a fairly wide gap and it's natur- al to wonder whether this wound will heal. It is just pos- sible that future crustal move- ments may push the two sides together and close the gash. But this is not likely. When the earth alters the landscape, the gashes and piles of debris are left where they are. There may be later changes in the same region, creating more uphea- vals.

Actual- y, it is a series of valleys ex- .ending from southeast Africa northward through the middle Last as far as Syria. Parts ol the steep sides are a mile high and the floor between them 20 to 30 miles wide. Sediments lave washed down and carpet ed the valley floor with ricl soil. The Red Sea flowed in to rill one of the deep wide clefts Several hollows filled with lake water. The Jordan River anc other streams gathered in some of the ditches. Recent studies in the Great Rift Valley suggest that cracks made by quakes and other crustal movements gradually fill up with soil or water. Tne studies also reveal that this re- gion is still unsettled. Some lime ago, a farmer, his plow and his ox suddenly sank from sight as a new crack opened in the valley floor. Earth sci- entists suspect that the Great Rift Valley is gradually grow- ing wider and perhaps deeper. In the far future it may sever most of Africa from Asia. Earthquake zones in other parts of the world are still scarred with cracks and bumps created ages ago. Some of those in California filled with ake water. In one place, a c r u K t a 1 slab between two mighty cracks sank down be- low sea level. After an uphea- val of this sort, erustal activ- ity usually shifts to another re- gion. In time, the craska and other changes are remodeled with lakes and streams and hills to form a new landscape. In California, that crustal slab between the two great cracks became the scenic wonderland of Death Valley. The earth's deepest cracks arc in the sea beds. The an- cient ones are partly filled with .sediments. Cone samples re- nnntly taken from the depths suggest that, the floors of the oceans arc spreading. This ex- citing new evidence may ex- plain how the land masses be- came separated and gradually pushed apart. The cracks in the Great Rift Valley may re veal more of tills earth mov- ing stoiy.

CAP) Delegates to the Elks' nation- al convention rejected here a resolution to remove the word "white" from the organization's membership requirements. However, the delegates voted to give the head of the organiza- tion authority to suspend the "white" membership require- ment until next year if he found such action "to be in the best interests of the order." The vote on the resolution that would permit blacks to join the Elks was taken in a secret session after 30 minutes of de- bate. No vote count was avail- able. Results were announced by of- ficials of the group, formally known as the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. It all started back in days of Adam, Eve ST. PAUL, Minn.
