CBS sports president, Neal Pil-

INDIANAPOLIS- Ryan White,
who won a long court battle to
attend public school and overcame
prejudice against himself and other
AIDS patients, lost his almost 6-
year struggle with the deadly virus.
He was 18.
White died about 7 a.m. at Riley
Hospital for children, where he
had been hospitalized since March
29 with an AIDS-related respira-
tory infection. He had been un-
conscious for more than a week.
President Bush, who last week
planted a tree in White's honor,

pledge to continue the fght, his
fight, against this dreaded disease."
White contracted AIDS in 1984
