OPERATED ON m LINCOLN
Edward W. Rebal of this city was
operated on Thursday at the Lincoln
Sanitarium for an affliction of t'.ie
air passages from which he has been
a sufferer since his dir.charge from
the navy in 1919. The operation was
performered by the government sur
geons and was a very severe one. the
patient being on the operating table
for an hour and one-half. The last
reports from the bedside of the young
man state that he is doing as well
as could possibly be expected hut it
will be some time before he is recov
ered from the effects of the opera
tion. It is hoped that this operation
will result in the permanent relief
of the patient who ha-? suffered so
long from this affliction.
