Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WHITE HOUSE DUET - Former U.S. president Lyndori B. Johnson yodels with his dog, YukI, in a photograph released by Ladies' Home Jownal, for the Johnson. Library. LucI Johnson Nugent, the president's daughter, revealed in a copyrighted article in the current issue that this was one of the president's great acts during his tenure in the White House. One is nearly blind Mills Brothers sing of love and sunshine VANCOUVER (CP) - The Mills Brothers sing of summer love and sunshine no matter how little of it shows in brother Harry's life. At 57 the second-oldest of the three brothers who have been singing together for 44 years, Harry faces blindness and an ailment that could mean an end to his career. . And that, says older brother Herb, could mean an end to the group completed by younger brother Donald. The fourth brother of the original group died in 1936. Han-y has no vision in his right eye and only 30-per-cent effectiveness in his left eye. To complicate matters, he has been a diabetic for 25 years and a diabetic seizure could harm the remaining sight. During a recent engagement in a Vancouver niglit- club, Harry flew down to the Stanford Medical Centre in Palo Alto, Calif., for his seventh treatment with laser beams in an effort to stop hemorrhaging behind his left eyeball. MUST WATCH DIET "I get around fine on the stage with all the lights," he later said, "but when I come off and I have to come upstairs to the dressing room, I just have one hell of a time. "My doctor says it will be five or sbc months before I get baclt a good sense of si^, providing the treatments' work as expected. Dialsetics are sloT healers. I have to watch my dieit every day and I have to get plenty of rest to keep my system in good enough balance so that I can take the laser treatments." The treatment is called photo-coagulation of the blood Intravenous fluids may he banned WASHINGTON (AP) - The Food and Drug Administi-ation is considering emergency removal of contaminated inti*ave-nous fluids from hospitals after finding its eai-lier warning has failed to stop a near-epidemic of infections which claimed at least nine lives. The disclosure by FDA officials here coincided with an allegation by consumer advocate Ralph Nader that the federal government was shockingly irresponsible in not banning the contaminated Abbott Laboratories product two weeks ago when the peril was disclosed. The Associated Press also learned tlie FDA rejected a public health service plea at the time for a ban, choosing instead a press-release warning that has failed to stop the infections. Following a series of emergency meetings late last week, tlie FDA has decided tentatively to remove the products from hospitals and nm-sing homes if it is certain other manufacturers can' supply substitutes in sufficient quantity, officials said. The FDA, in a joint announcement eight days ago witli the public health service's center of disease control advised precautionary sleps for using the Abbott intravenous sugar solution. A spokesman for Abbott Laboratories in Chicago said the firm is continuing to work closely with the FDA and disease conti'ol centre and feels that the precautionary procee-dures ai-e "the most responsible course of actios to protect the healh of patients requiring intravenous tlierapy." SHIPMENTS STOPPED He said all shipments of Abbott intravenous solutions which might be involved with the infections have been suspended "except on an emergency basis." The govei-nment had found as many as 52 per cent of bottles contained plastic cap liners con-tannnated with bacteria, which under certain ch-cumstances could contaminate the fluid and cause infection. The sugar solution is infused by needle mto the veins of sick persons unable to take food and drink by mouth. A spokesman for the food and drug directorate in Ottawa said none of the contaminated fluids has been shipped to Canada. He said Canadian officials had been working in close touch on the matter with the FDA in the U.S. for the last 10 days. Chinese premier meets Russian MOSCOW (Reuter) - Cliinese Pi-emier Chou En-lai had a meeting Sunday with Soviet Ambassador V a s i 1 i Tolstikov and Deputy Foreign Minister Leonid Ilyichov, Tass news agency reported Tuesday. The presence of Ilyichov, who heads the Soviet side at Uie Suio-So-viet border talks, was seen here as an indication these were raised, vessels with an argon laser, �and Harry has had 152 individual vessels cauterized in his left eyeball. "My diabetes is hereditary," he said, "but I really started to get sick about three years ago when I passed out on stage in Las Vegas and came to three days later. "The doctors told me I had suffered a minor heart attack and that I had pneumonia and shingles (a virus infection of the nerve ttamks). "The shingles started at the base of my brain and worked its way down my spine. Eventually .it hit the optic nerve in my right eye and knocked it out." WENT ROUND WORLD After that, he literally "went around the world looking for treatment. "I went to Germany, to Switzerland and to Japan, but I was always referred back to the Boston Eye and Ear Clinic. That's where the treatments began to save my left eye." Han-y quit diinking three years ago and smoking a year ago but "taking me off the golf course, that really hurt." "Actuially, I feel fine. As long as I get my eight to 10 hours of sleep a ni^ht, I feel perfect. "When people ask me how I am, I always say 'I'm great, I woke up this morning,' It's a thing said in jest but there's a lot of truth to it. Every morning I figure I've been lucky enough to get; one more day. "Things seemed to be going good, but about four months ago I had a setback that really scared me. I had to take thi-ee months off. . .. "Now it's treatments, rest, diet, B-12 shots and lots of vitamin C. I think I can whip this thing because I have the best doctor available and I've got the Lord's hand on my shoulder." FUTURE CLOUDED He said that if he loses his sight "I'll be very, very unhappy about it, but I think I could reconcile myself to it-after all, there are people in the world with worse problems." "But to keep singing with the group? I don't know. I wouldn't want people to think of me any differently than they do now. Maybe if the people coul
