OPEN SUNDAYS and EVENINGS

Thirty-eight youngsters, all once
destined to die, this week cele-
brated Valentine's Day with the
New York surgeon who mended
their hearts in Brooklyn Jewish
Hospital.
Dr. Alvin R. Bakst, pioneer in
open heart surgery, could say
only, "Isn't it marvelous?" as
the children frolicked about him
in a joyous tribute of thanks.
The party was held at the hos-
pital.
Each of the little boys and girls
would not have lived to maturity
without the refined operation
which Bakst began to perform
four years ago. He has saved
some 200 lives with this method
of surgery.
