C. C. N. Y. Boy, Hurt in Game, Rallies Slightly

Download PDF for this date

Aaron Greenwald, reserve City College back, was still in a critical condition late yesterday at Morrisania Hospital, where he has been since November 10, when he was injured in the C. C. N. Y. N. Y. U. football game. The twenty-one-year-old football player, who received an internal injury in the last game of the season, is suffering from pneumonia.

Since last week little hope had been held for Greenwald’s recovery until yesterday afternoon, when his response to treatment caused some optimism among doctors. However, he is still in a grave condition.

Greenwald was hurt in scrimmage during the N. Y. U. game. Time was taken out and he remained in the game, believing he had not been injured. A few plays later he was carried off the field. Because he complained of a pain in the leg no attention was paid to his stomach ailment.

Apparently normal when he left the dressing room, he started home on the subway, collapsed, and was rushed to the hospital.

An operation was performed immediately. Greenwald seemed to be recovering until last week when pneumonia set in.

His condition steadily grew more serious. On Monday several members of the City College football team were called in and gave their injured team-mate blood for transfusions. He is now in an oxygen tent.
