DAILY GA ZETTE Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Vol. 41 -No. 240 -U.S. Navy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Thursday, December 19, 1985 Surgeons give woman artificial heart UPI) -Surgeons in Mineapolis are working to finish implanting the Jarvik-7 artificial heart in a 40-year-old woman, the first female recipient of the device. Doctors at Abbott Northwestern Hospital say the woman's condition is critical. Surgeons at the Minnesota Heart Institute decided on the heart implant yesterday when they determined the woman would not live through the night without it. The doctors hope the artificial heart will keep the woman alive until they can implant her with a human heart. The woman, whose family asked she not be named, is suffering from a viral condition affecting the heart muscle. The head of the implant team is Dr. Lyle Joyce, who assisted Dr. William Devries in 1982 in the first total artificial heart implant in Barney Clark. Joyce is using a smaller Jarvik-7 heart for this operation because of the size of the woman's chest cavity. (UPI) -Officials in Los Angeles say the bodies of three construction workers will remain buried some 60 *eet below ground until it is safe to remove than. Crews worked through the night to shore up the 22story office building where the workers died. City official have halted construction pending an inspection. Tons of steel beams overloaded the corrugated floor yesterday and crashed 11 stories to a sub-basement, burying the victims in a twisted mass of metal and concrete. Six other workers were hurt in the accident, but only two required hospitalization. Nearly 200 other workers scrambled to safety as the beams and other debris rained down. Several workers said they thought it was an earthquake. One worker said the accident sounded, in his words, "like a deck of cards shuffling."

Larry Bird had a game-high 35 points for Boston. With the win, the Celtics continued their dominance over the Mavericks, who had never beaten Boston. The Celtics own an 11-and-0 mark against the Mavericks, who entered the NBA in 1980. Charles Barkley had the most productive night of his pro career, scoring a careerbest 31 points to lead Philadelphia to a 126-108 romp against Houston. Barkley also pulled down 19 rebounds, while Moses Malone added 24 points for the 76ers. The Rockets have now lost 19 straight games at Philadelpha's Spectrum, a streak which dates back to January 1974. The New Jersey backcourt sparked the Nets to a 113-98 win over the Utah Jazz. New Jersey's Otis Birdsong connected for 24 points, while teammate Michael Ray Richardson added 21 points, seven rebounds and nine Around the globe Space Shuttle Columbia (UPI) -A computer halted countdown of the shuttle Columbia this morning, 14 seconds before the scheduled takeoff. The delay is the second in three days for the five-day mission. NASA officials say the earliest new launch time is tomorrow.

The Nets have now won five of their last six games. The Los Angeles Clippers managed to squeeze out a 103-99 home win against the Golden State Warriors. Marques Johnson scored 22 points for the Clippers, with Junior Birdgeman adding 20 and Cedric Maxwell tossing in 16 points, including six in the final minute. After a 10-year pro career, New York Knicks center Marvin Webster has retired. Webster says he made the decision because he did not want to aggravate the hepatitis condition that prevented him from playing this season. Sports glance College Basketball (UPI) -Do not look for Indiana Coach Bobby Knight to invite Milt Wagner to his Christmas party. The senior guard from Louisville scored 19 points of his 22 points in the second half last night to lead the seventeenth-ranked Cardinals to a thrilling 65-63 victory over the sixteenthranked Hoosiers.

Payton is joined in the starting backfield by San Francisco quarterback Joe Montana and 49er running back Roger Craig. The Los Angeles Rams will have seven players in the February 2 game in Honolulu, including starting offensive tackle Jackie Stater and guard Kent Hill. The AFC team will be announced today. Captain's Hotline Inquiry: A caller was concerned about why we cannot have the same visitor visit more than once per year. Response: The short answer is the the Chief of Naval Operations limits each of us to just one visit by a guest per twelve month period. Before 1973, no visitors were allowed on the base. In that year, the base commander asked for a waiver to allow unaccompanied residents to have a guest visit once per year. The waiver was granted. A bit later, the base commander asked for this to be extended to accompanied residents as well. That too was granted. Today, we still abide by that rule, but have expanded it to allow up to eight different people visit one person during the course of a year. Inquiry: Several callers questioned the sale of Christmas trees on November 30. They felt trees went on sale too early and there were not enough trees for people who wanted to buy them. Response: Naval Station Guantanamo Bay receives only one Christmas tree shipment per year. Because the trees are alive they need to be refrigerated during transport and must be kept refrigerated until they are sold. This year the Christmas tree shipment arrived early. Because it costs the Navy Exchange $40 a day to refrigerate the trees, the Navy Exchange Officer decided to sell the trees on November 30, rather than holding them until later in December. This year, the Navy Exchange received 40 more trees than last year. GTMO's Athletics Soccer -The most popular sport in the world has finally become an intercommard sport here.
