Baby survives near-
rejection of heart
By DOV COHEN
A six-month-old girl, believed to be
the youngest living heart transplant
patient, returned to stable but critical
condition yesterday at the University's
Mott Children's hospital after her body
began to reject her transplanted heart
"The rejection resulted in unstable
condition for 12 hours after which doc-
tors were able to stabilize her con-
dition," said Dave Friedo, a hospital
HE CALLED the rejection episode
"There isn't anything more serious
than unstable life signs," he said. "She
is a very sick little girl."
This Thursday was the first time doc-
tors have detected any signs that the
girl was beginning to reject the heart,
he said. It will take another two weeks
before doctors will be able to tell if the
girl's body is rejecting the heart.
Meanwhile, the Central Michigan in-
fant is being watched in an intensive
care unit and is breathing with the aid
of a respirator, Friedo said.
Because of the ventilator, doctors
were forced to put off the infant's first
oral feedings which were scheduled for

BOSTON (AP)-Fund-raising letters
resembling bills were sent to hundreds
of Boston University alumni, saying
"Please Pay This amount" and
threatening to cut off school mailings
for those who didn't give, but a school
official said Friday the whole thing was
"It was an error, it was in bad taste,
and it was badly executed," said
Robert Feldman, vice president for
development, whose signature appears
below a form letter sent to hundreds of
alumni, chiding them for failing to pay
$25 for an official "Alumni Association
"FRANKLY, I'M concerned," the
letter states. "I have just finished
reviewing the 1985 program with our
Alumni Programs Director Jan Hicin-
bothem and she informed me that your
name appears on our inactive alumni
listing. I told Ms. Hicinbothem there
must be some mistake, but she assured
me there wasn't.
"In fact, when I went back further in
our records I found you haven't par-
ticipated in any of our alumni drives in
the last two years. Needless to say I
The letter then threatens to cut off
various campus publications unless the
$25 is sent.
Among those who received the
material was Edward Quill, a reporter
for The Boston Globe, who noted his
displeasure in a column in Friday's
"WHEN YOU RECEIVE a fund-
raising plea, you don't expect con-
descension; you don't anticipate
arrogance; and, least of all, you don't
look for threats," Quill wrote.
He also wondered what the other
people listed as non-donors "thought of
me for not giving."
Feldman said the mailing was the
result of a communications mixup with
the person who actually wrote the let-
ter, whom he would not identify. Feld-
man said he approved the package
without reviewing it.

ACROSS ROUTE 55 a sheriff's
deputy waited in his car on Friday,
watching as people, most of them
reporters, stopped by.
"I just thought I'd stay out here and
watch and see if anything happens,"
said Sgt. Paul Mercer of the Fauquier
County Sheriff's Department. "The
man does have a temper."
As he spoke, a blue pickup truck
rolled slowly by. A rider rolled down his
window, shook his head and said, "You

"THAT'S PRETTY much the local
reaction," said Mercer. "It's a fact
around here in the area that he's pretty

"And here in the area, you'll find

because he's been doing it for so long."
While food and service at the
restaurant draws mixed reviews from
the locals, several blacks agreed with
Woodson that it was a place to avoid.
Woodson said he went in the restaurant
once years ago and said he saw a sign
suggesting blacks wouldn't be served.
"I READ HIS sign. I could see he
wasn't going to serve me. There's no
use in going in there," Woodson said.
James Battle, a black man who lives
in Marshall, said he had been served
beer in the restaurant, years ago. "But
he just got worse and worse, in my
opinion, so everybody. stopped going
