Hwrtii OillfMUM MurpHyrtero ludipi THURSDAY OCT 24 1974 Nixon reenters hospital Long Beach Calif AP Former President Richard M Nixon facing possible surgery has reentered the hospital here because home treatment for his phlebitis condition proved inef fective his doctor says Nixonlimpedslightly but was unassisted as he walked through a rear service entrance to be admitted Wednesday night to Memorial Hospital Medical Center for me second time in three weeks A spokesman for the hospital in this coastal city bordering Los Angeles said the former president was expected to be released by the end of the week Nixon apparently made the 50 mile trip from his San Clemente home to the hospital by car There had been no advance announcement that he was returning to the hospital Jack Weiblen hospital vice president said Nixon was brought in after dark to reduce publicity He covets his privacy Weiblen said of Nixon who resigned as president last Aug 9 Dr John C Lungren Nixons longtime personal physician said Nixon was taken to the hospital after anticoagulent drugs proved ineffective in treating inflamed veins in Nix ons left leg He said a diagnostic radiology test called a venogram had been performed on the 61yearold former president after his ar rival and showed a near total occlusion or blockage of blood flow in the area of Nixons left thigh A venogram involves in jecting iodine dye into the blood stream to make X rays of the patients circulatory system clearer Lungren noted that several blood clots were found in the swollen leg but he added that these clots could be old or fresh Nixon received anticoagulents Coumadin orally and neparin intravenously during his first hospital stay 12 days ending Oct 4 But only Coumadin had been prescribed for him while he was convalescing at his oceanfront villa at San Clemente If were not capable of prov ing adequate prophylactic anti coagulation by oral Coumadin then the possibility of surgical intervention must be con sidered said Lungren He treated Nixon since 1952 Dean testimony differs Washington AP John Mitchells defense lawyer in the Watergate cover up trial focused today on dif ferences between John Deans

car Confusing Not to Marilyn Ridings the 27 year old jnother of a deafmute Deaf people despise them the deaf Mrs Ri dings explains They give the deaf people who are trained to work a bad image Mrs Ridings son Michel was more than 1 year old before she and her husband suspected there was anything seriously wrong with his hear ing He is now 2 years old and is rapidly learning how to communicate through the use of a sign language called total communication Mrs Ridings of 625 N 15th St Murphysboro gets upset at some of the stereotypes and misconceptions that deaf mutes have to endure She started a sign language class to change some of the stereo types A deaf person if given the chance will be as good e worker as a hearing per son Mrs Ridings said To me the word dumb is the biggest prejudice deaf people have to overcome In ourso ciety dumb means mute Her class meets every Fri day night in her home for about one hour during which she instructs her students for per on the use and versatility of total com munication Total communica tion is the use of the hands the lips the voice and even the body to develop an ability to communicate with those who hear There are 15 persons in the class now Mrs Ridings said When I put the ad in the paper I had hoped I could get students especially those in special education Three of rny students are students at Southern Southern Illinois University at I wanted everyone to be come aware of the wrong con cepts For instance a hearing aid does not cure deafness To illustrate her point Mrs Ridings explained that when Michel was tested at the Cen tral Institute for the Deaf in St Louis the tests showed he responded to sounds as low as 75 decibels about the level of loud The problem is that Michel does not have several of the thou sands of nerves that are nec essary for a person who can hear to identify sounds Michel wears a hearing aid that helps him to hear sounds but nerve deafness is incur able Michel cant hear soft sound letters f p h s t ch th or I back total communica 100 per cent Mrs Rjfdings About 95 per cent of deaf said All the forms A Eng people can lip read she said lish left out in are about themost pat older and more abbreviated ient people I have seen included while deafness is a definite inconvenience for the afflicted child it also can be a definite economic handicap for the pa rents Books and instructional materials cost more than sim ilar products for the person who hears The costs of a book such as Little Red Riding Hood runs around where a similar book for a hearing child would be 39 cents Mrs Ridings and Michel learning total corn sign language are in total communication If he says I went to town he signs every word while be fore he signed went town Before because of this IQ tests showed deaf people as dumb Thests put them far below average because they sign in present tense only Total communication is not a difficult sign language to learn There are approximately 5000 signs altogether in our book there are 1188 signs Sign language is the third highest used language in this country About 500000 deaf people in this country use sign language You dont realize how many signs hearing people use Several signs used by deaf people are the signs used in everyday communication There are other means of communicating used by deaf people Fingerspelling is used when someone does not know sign language Each letter in the alphabet has jts own sign and communication is done by spelling out each word A West Frankfort woman says she talked with state police investigators for 1 hours Wednesday detailing what she knows about al leged improper activities by city county and state law en forcement officers in Franklin County Carol Evrard 26 said she told two men from the Dis trict 25 investigative unit at Du Quoin about incidents in which she has been involved over the past several years Mrs Evrard said she vol unteered her testimony after reading about the investiga tion in the newspaper The investigators asked her if she had knowledge of any copper thefts or if she knew where some guns were she said But she said she could only tell them she would try to find out where the guns are The investigation reportedly is centered around several thefts of copper wire and ot her illegal activities investi gators States Atty Loren P Lewis and Sheriff Barney Browning have refused to dis close details of the investiga tion Three deputies and the investigator for the states at torney were suspended and resigned as a result of the probe Investigators were unavail able for
