  • Description

    CAPE TOWN'S GROOTE SCHUUR HOSPITAL WAS BESIEGED BY NEWSPAPER AND TV MEN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AS DR. PHILIP BLAIBERG, A 58-YEAR-OLD RETIRED DENTIST, BEGAN HIS TENSE BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL SUSTAINED WITH NEW LIFE FROM THE HEART OF A COLOURED MAN
    TO ENSURE BEST CHANCES OF RECOVERY, DOCTORS ARE LIKELY TO INSIST THAT DR. BLAIBERG BE KEPT QUIET. ALREADY THERE WERE SIGNS THAT THE HOSPITAL WAS CLAMPING DOWN HEAVILY ON PRESS ENQUIRIES AND ALLOWING NONE OF THE EASY PUBLICITY THAT ATTENDED THE OPERATION ON LOUIS WASHKANSKY IN DECEMBER.

    TODAY'S (WEDNESDAY) LATEST BULLETIN FROM THE HOSPITAL SAID THAT DR. BLAIBERG HAD SPOKEN FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE OPERATION AND DESCRIBED HIS CONDITION AS SATISFACTORY.

    SO FAR THE OPERATION HAS CAUSED NO OUTCRY FROM THE ADHERENTS OF APARTHEID - THE LAW THAT PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES MUST LIVE APART.
