who years ago was known as (icorgt

and surgeons sav the bullet could not
have gone in direct line without pierc
ing the heart. The sciagraph indicate
that the hall was not deflected. It Will
require another sciagraph showing a
lateral view of the patient's chest to
determine whether the bullet has
passed through the heart or not. If it
proves to be back of the heart, the
nnstery will be greater than ever.
