Cardinal's Disease Incurable NFW YORK Hi« Eminence Aloysius Cardinal Stepinac i« stricken b\ an incurable blood disease but its progre-s can be arrested through modern medical treatment However such treat ment will have less efficacy as long a* the Cardinal is forced to endure the stresses and strains of his present environment.

Dr. John Lawrence. Univer sity of California authority on radioactive therapy, and Dr. John Ruzic. Chicago surgeon of Croa tian descent, confirmed that the ardinal is afflicted with a serious case of polycythemia, a disease marked by an abnormal increase of the red blood cells. Dr. Law rence has been, since 1938, a pioneer in treating this disease. The doctors report stated that the disease can have fatal conse quences unless held in check by the weapons made available by the most modern findings of medi cal science. But both doctors went on to emphasiz.e the im portance ol other factors which although not physical, are related to the disease and have a definite bearing on the effect of the treat ment. Among these factors the doc tors listed the environment with in which the ardinal is forced to live and "his present regime of restraint.” •------------------o------------------ Bishop Sheen Says Russia To Return to God NEW YORK (NC) One day Russia will return to God.
