Local tr ansplant patient stable
By DOV COHEN
The six-month-old girl who under-
went heart transplant surgery last
week at University Hospital is reported
to be in critical but stable condition,
hospital spokesman Dave Friedo said
The baby girl, believed to be the
recipient, is breathing with the aid of a
ventilator in the hospital's intensive
care unit, according to Friedo.
HE WOULD not say whether the girl
Hospital officials say it's too early to
determine whether the eight-hour tran-
splant operation completed early
they are optimistic because the girl's
condition is stable.
"The doctors are hopeful she'll con-
tinue to make progress. We'll just have
to wait and see," Friedo said.
"She's a very sick little girl
recovering from a taxing, long, drawn-
out heart transplant," he added.

The donor of her new heart was a 15-
month-old Texas boy, Arnold Shalda,
who was pronounced brain dead last

Children's Hospital in Detroit.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - William Schroeder's bleeding
was stopped and his circulation was "excellent" on
his second day living with the soft clicking of a
mechanical heart inside his chest, doctors said
"He is not bleeding... There appear to be no major
complications," said Dr. Allan Lansing, chairman of
Humana Heart Institute in Louisville and assistant to
Dr. William DeVries, who implanted the artificial
"HE IS WARM, pink and dry, indicating excellent
circulation," Lansing said at a press briefing.
Schroeder underwent emergency surgery to stop
excessive bleeding Sunday night, less than six hours
after he became the second person in history to
receive a permanent artificial heart.
The excessive bleeding was stopped, but not before
Schroeder had lost half of his blood through a hole
where the artificial heart was stitched to his aorta,
the artery that carries blood to the rest of the body.
SCHROEDER LOST less than two pints of blood
overnight, which Lansing said was normal for a
patient recovering from open heart survery.
Schroeder, a 52-year-old quality assurance
specialist from Jasper, Ind., who was forced to retire
because of ill health, was under sedation and
breathing with the help of a respirator, Lansing said.
Schroeder was being supported by a $40,000 console
beside his bed, but doctors hope to be able to use an
11-pound, shoulder-carried device for a few hours at a
time when Schroeder's condition improves. The por-
table unit developed in West Germany will allow the
patient to walk about.
HIS WIFE OF 32 years, Margaret visited him there
yesterday morning and held his hand. Doctors said
Schroeder "seemed to recognize her." Schroeder was
described by hospital officials as "very happy to see
Schroeder remained in critical but stable condition,
Lansing said. His kidneys and liver were behaving
slightly abnormally, but Lansing said that was ex-
pected after open heart surgery.
The principal danger during the next week is that
Schroeder might develop an infection, Lansing said.

GM to inspect 3 million cars
WASHINGTON - General Motors Corp., heading off a possible gover-
nment safety recall order, agreed yesterday to call in 3.1 million mid-sized
cars for inspection to determine whether they have axles that might cause
the rear wheels to separate.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been in-
vestigating complaints about axle and wheel separation on some General
Motors "A-body" mid-size cars for nearly three years and in April 1983 an-
nounced an initial determination of a safety defect in the cars.
NHTSA spokesman Dick Burdette said yesterday that the agency had
received 1,063 reports of axles failing in the GM cars, including 264 in which
wheels came off and 208 accidents involving 30 injuries. General Motors said
it knew of 15 injuries and "about 200 incidents of axle separation."
The cars covered under the program announced yesterday are the 1978
through 1980 Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Pontiac Le Mans,
Pontiac Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass and Cutlass Supreme, Buick Cen-
tury, Buick Regal, and two lines of trucks made from car chassies, the
Chevrolet El Camino and the GMC Caballero.
U.S., Iraq mend diplomatic ties
WASHINGTON - The United States, seeking to widen its influence in the
Arab world, resumed diplomatic relations with Iraq yesterday after a 17-
The move was announced immediately after President Reagan met for 35
minutes with Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz, the highest ranking Iraqi to visit
here since the 1967 break.
At the same time, the administration gave assurances that it was not en-
dorsing Iraqi policies, intending to arm the Baghdad government or
meaning any harm to Israel. "It has no effect on our relations with Israel,
which continue to be stronger than ever," a senior U.S. official told repor-
Until 21/2 years ago, Iraq was listed by the United States as a country that
supports terrorism. It broke relations to protest American support for Israel
in the 1967 Six-Day War.
"The step recognizes the importance of our holding productive discussions
with an important state in the Middle East, where the interests of the United
States and the Free World are significant," said the senior official, who in-
sisted on anonymity.
U.N. to hear Nicaraguan case
THE HAGUE, Netherlands - Rejecting a Reagan administration move to
keep its Central American policy out of the World Court, the international
tribunal agreed yesterday to hear Nicaragua's complaint that the United
States is sponsoring aggression against the Sandinista government.
By its 15-1 vote to hear the case, the court decided against Washington's
contention that Nicaragua was not eligible to come before, the court and
rejected a U.S. bid to exempt itself from the court's authority.
The court kept in force its emergency ruling of last May ordering the
United States to cease military actions against the Sandinistas, pending final
legal resolution of the case.
The 258-page ruling yesterday opened the way to full hearings before the
World Court panel on Nicaragua's complaints of U.S. aggression.
Nicaragua termed the court's assumption of jurisdiction yesterday a
"moral victory," and called on the United. States to abide by the court's
India charges AP reporter with
sedition for story on temple raid
NEW DELHI, India - Brahma Chellaney, an Associated Press reporter,
said the government charged him yesterday with sedition, a crime that
carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and a fine.
Chellaney is in Amritsar, Punjab, where he has been undergoing in-
terrogation on previous charges related to his report in June describing the
Indian army's attack on the Sikh holy temple there.
Chellaney, who was interrogated for the fifth straight day yesterday said
in a telephone call to New Delhi that he was informed of the new charge by of-
The United News of India news agency also reported that a sedition charge
had been filed.
Chellaney, 27, an Indian citizen, had earlier been accused of maliciously
inciting communal discord because of his AP dispatch.
Arafat ousts seven opponents
AMMAN, Jordan - The Palestinian parliament-in-exile, undeterred by
the threat of an air attack, yesterday moved to expel seven pro-Syrian
leaders from the Palestine Liberation Organization in a mounting purge of
PLO chief Yasser Arafat's opponents.
Arafat told the Palestine National council he had been informed of a plan-
ned air raid on the Hussein sports complex, where the PNC has been meeting
for five days. He did not identify the attackers or the source of the report.
"There was an aircraft with bombs coming to destroy this council, and we
asked the Jordanians for all the strict security measures you see," Arafat
said. PNC delegates have been subjected to stringent security checks.
Arafat's comments came after the PNC, the decision-making body of the
eight-faction PLO, announced telegcams had been sent to seven rebel
leaders in Damascus notifying them of pending proceedings to expel them.
