'ver ill;
s surgery
Critically burned comedian Richard
Pryor was described as "very, very ill"
and in "extreme pain" yesterday, and
} doctors said they were disturbed by
complications in his condition.
"Richard pryor is in critical con-
dition and very, very ill," Dr. Richard
Grossman said. "I cannot overstress
a the seriousness of Mr. Pryor's in-
- juries."
- ;YESTERDAY'S report was one of the
most pessimistic since Pryor was ad-
mitted to the Sherman Oaks Com-
munity Hospital June 9 with third-
- - 1degree burns over the upper half of his
body. He was burned when his clothing
caught fire at his home.
Skin graft surgery, originally expec-
ted to begin at the end of this week, was
_ - rpostponed until Monday at the earliest,
Grossman said.
"When I saw Richard in the whirlpool
this morning, I was not 100 per cent
happy with the way the wounds looked
at this stage and felt they were not
ready to accept grafts," he said.
Hospital spokeswoman Nona Egan
said a variety of medical specialists
had been called in for consultation on
the 39-year-old entertainer's condition.

Volcanic fury
The U.S. Geological Survey yesterday released photos taken from an airplane during the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount
St. Helens. A glowing lava dome at the base of the volcano's crater has doubled in size since it was spotted four days
ago. Scientists say it could be the birth of a new summit but added it could be blown apart by future eruptions. The dome
formation stage often signals the end of volcanic activity as a mountain rebuilds itself.
