Ophthalmologic survey of atomic bomb survivors in Japan, 1949. Atomic bomb radiation cataract case report with histopathologic study. Medical examination of Hiroshima patients with radiation cataracts

Description: This document contains 3 reports dealing with the delayed effects of radiation on the eyes of survivors of the atomic explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the first study, 1000 persons who were listed as having been in the open and within two kilometers of the hypocenter at the time of the explosion were selected at random from the census files of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission for study. In addition, 231 others, comprising the total available number of surviving persons listed at present in the census files as having been within one kilometer of the hypocenter, were examined, as were several hundred others who were contacted through newspaper publicity, referrals from local ophthalmologists, or through hearsay. The survey resulted in bringing in persons having, or having had, a variety of ocular conditions. Those connected with the atomic bomb included the following diagnoses; multiple injuries of eyes and eyelids; keratoconjunctivitis from ultraviolet and ionizing radiations; thermal burn of the cornea and of the retina; retinitis proliferans; and radiation cataracts. The cataracts were the only delayed manifestations of ocular injury from the atomic bomb. The second paper is a case report of a histopathologic study of atomic bomb radiation cataract. The third paper presents the results of medical examinations of survivors having radiation induced cataracts. 32 references, 8 figures. (DMC)

Samarkandko

Description: Recording of Peter Tod Lewis's Samarkandko. This piece is a linear construction on five highly contrasted sources. The affective associations of the materials may suggest a dramatic scenario which, though ambiguous, contradictory, subjective, guided the order on event presentations and their manner of juxtaposition. One evolved theory of the work had precisely to do with the use of extreme, and perhaps at first seemingly unrelated, contrast that such materials can, with care and sensitivity, work together in a composition, to see in the end, related, if only now to the whole. Samarkandko was realized in October of 1976 in the Electronic Music Studios of the University of Iowa.

11 september

Description: Recording of Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen's "11 september." The text is from a document called "What is MIR?" which was sent out illegally in Chile in 1974 and from the appeal of MIR two years after the taking over by the junta, on September 11, 1975. A left-wing party, MIR stayed in Chile in order to contribute as efficiently as possible to the building of the opposition. Other sound material also includes sounds from a typewriter and a demonstration at Bastad, Sweden in September 1975 at a tennis match between Sweden and Chile with more than 4,000 participants. The text is taken in small excerpts from the document in Spanish, English, Swedish, Danish, French, Dutch, and Icelandic. The piece consists of three sections overlapping each other gradually, which shows the relationship between the spoken words and the immediate danger connected with that text. The first section "as a spontaneous statement," deals with the document at its direct background: the silence is broken, in spite of the danger connected with the writing, manifolding papers that criticize the politics and methods of the junta and discuss the strategy of the opposition. The second section deals with the document as a medium of discussion. At the end of this section, the "media-environment," "almost as a magazine on foreign affairs," is broken by shouts from the demonstration at the Bastad which were heard directly in Chilean TV. The third section is about the appeal of MIR as a direct request to the audience: to isolate the junta through a boycott of Chilean products and through demanding from national politicians to break the silence which has long been maintained, among other places in the United Nations of which Chile is still a member. Inspiration for the piece came from the composer's participation in the activities of the …
