LeRoy Celebrates Birthday Seaman's Ship Getting Shipyard Overhaul — Serving aboard the submarine rescue vessel USS Coucal, which is undergoing overhaul at the Pearl Harbor naval shipyard, is Warren W.

This annual yard period is used to introduce new and more mod em methods of submarine rescue and to fully overhaul the ship for future duty. LeRoy Moos . . . plucky fellow.—The Frontier Photo. LeRoy Moos now can have his cake and eat it, too. The little boy from O’Neill Saturday ate his first birthday cake—an orange frosting dazzler with five blue candles number ing his years. He has had other birthday cakes in his long stay at Omana University hospital—but only for feasting with the eyes. His esophagus—normally an elastic tube that connects the pharynx and the stomach—was a cord of scar tissue. A rare operation—one of sev en major surgical procedures — and numerous minor ones have by-passed that block. It all beqan January 20, 1950, when LeRoy drank a lye solution in the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Moos of O'Neill. By the time LeRoy was brought to the hospital, scar tis sue had clogged his esophagus so that he could not even swal low water. Later a gastrostomy—an open ing made in the stomach for art ificial feeding—was performed. For more than a year LeRoy was fed a high - protein mixture through a stomach tube. The rare operation involved isolating a section of his small intestine and bringing into the chest cavity as a replacement for the useless esophagus. The extremely difficult part, a doctor explained, was stretch ing without breaking the meser> terv — a filmy connective tissue containing the blood carriers. The boy now can eat anything. But it is still necessary to dilate the new esophagus. LeRov has been placed in a boarding home so he can attend school and return twiee weekly to the hospital for dilations. Each dilation requires running a series of rubber tubes down the esophagus. The largest is about a half an inch in diameter Weighted with more than a pound of mercury, it is equiva lent to an adult swallowing a qarden hose, a doctor said. The dilations in time will be far apart. Doctors doubt if Le Roy will ever be free completely from them. But the boy wasn’t worrying about that at a birthday party [ * « * provided by hospital personnel. He was too busy showing off his birthday cake and presents to two of his young hospital friends. Plucky Little LeRoy spent a few days here with his parents a few weeks ago. He stopped to visit The Frontier and LeRoy was pictured seated at the key board of a linotype machine.
