Doctors fail to save


urges native

DENVER (A) - Linda Irene
Culbertson, whose brain stop-
ped two days ago, died yester-
day and so did her unborn
baby that doctors had tried to
The doctors had agreed that
to continue life support efforts
was unwarranted but a hos-
pital spokesman, Etic Munson,
said the fetal heartbeat ceased
before life support equipment
was disconnected.
Culbertson, whose brain died
in a two-car accident Monday,
was put on life support ma-
chinery which, sustained her
other bodily functions.
Doctors studied the legal,
ethical, moral and medical
questions of trying to save the
life of her 15-week-old fetus by
keeping the 29-year-old, wom-
an's body functioning for five
more weeks, until the baby
could be delivered.
Colorado General Hospital an-
nounced yesterday afternoon
that extensive clinical evalia-
tion and consultation by the
medical staff had established
that the fetus could not live
outside the womb. Consequently
it was decided to stop the ex-
traordinary life support mea-
sures, but the fetus died before
the measures were halted.
CULBERTSON died 49 hours
after the accident. Her only
child, 6-month-old Shannon,
who suffered a fractured skull
in the car accident, was report-
ed in good condition.
Doctors originally received
Culbertson at general hospital
as a potential organ donor, but
the life support measures were
undertaken after the fetal
heartbeat was detected.
Doctors said the fetus could

"WE DON'T KNOW if the
body can support the growth
of the fetus," Dr. James Ogs-

sion to stop life support ma-

Earlier, discussing the doc-
tor's dilemma, hospital spokes-
man Ted Wrenn said "You

you do? It raises a whole ser-

Considered by many to be Bergman's greatest masterpiece.
The imminent death of a woman brings her two sisters and
faithful servant to her side. Bergman uses the delicate setting
to hauntingly explore human relationships, love, pain, all of
life, and its consant mingling with death. Harriet Anderson,
Liv Ullman. Swedish with subtitles.
(lngmor Bergman, 1971) 8:45 ONLY
Love comes in many forms. The ability for a person to express
or receive love is endless in its variety. The implications of
this mystery are once again explored by Ingmar Bergman in
his first English language film. "A picture flood lit from
within . , . transparently fond of its characters. The film is
full of acting moments that are physically miraculous . . .
like memories of everyone."-Penelope Gilliatt. With Elliott
Gould, Bibi Andersonn, Max von Sydow, Sheia Rerd and
Maria Nolgard.

Aid makers are exploiting chil-
dren and encouraging them to
consume too much sugar by
offering money to schools for
empty packages of the powder-
ed beverage mix, two nonprofit
groups say.
Consumers Union and the
Committee on Children's Tele-
vision asked the state Board of
Education and the state schools'
superintendent Tuesday to ban
the Kool-Aid campaign sponsor-
ed by General Foods Corp. from
California classrooms.
THE REQUEST was a supple-
ment to a petition from the two
groups last month criticizing
Post Cereals, a subsidiary of
General Foods, for an offer to
trade sports equipment for cer-
eal boxtops. The groups asked
the board of education to keep
the program out of public
After receiving the Post Cere-
als petition, state schools Supt.
Wilson Riles issued nonbinding
guidelines including considera-
tions such as benefits to a
school, comparative expense,
school objectives and school in-
fluence in favor of one com-
pany to the exclusion of others.
The state school board is sched-
uled to consider the matter"
General Foods in a statement
Tuesday called the criticism of
Kool-Aid "nonsensical and dis-

al Foods asked rhetorically
whether the groups' next tar-
get would be sales of cookies
by Scouts - "Or possibly they
will seek FCC Federal Commun-
ication Commission action to
prevent the producers of 'Se-
same Street' from using the
Cookies Monster character."
The Kool-Aid program will
be tested in Washington, D.C.,
