Doctors in Tucson implanted a Jarvik-7 artificial heart in a 25-year-old man Thursday to keep him alive while they search for a human heart for transplant. The recipient, Michael Drummond of Phoenix, was reported in critical but stable condition after five hours of surgery at the University of Arizona Medical Center. Drummond is the youngest person yet to receive the mechanical pump that is already sustaining three men in their 50s. Two other recipients have died.

An orange-tinged full moon rises above the dark line of trees along the shore as the 14-foot motorboat hums quietly across the still waters of Rock Harbor. Biologist Joseph Kaplan stands in front, gripping a powerful spotlight with one hand and a pair of binoculars with the other. He and partner Keren Tischler, who is piloting the boat, are seeking a family of common loons known to nest on Caribou Island, part of the Lake Superior archipelago that forms Isle Royale National Park.

The three teen-agers were mightily ticked off. CHP Officer Dave Romero had pulled over their station wagon for making a tires-squealing start at a Rowland Heights intersection. And then, Romero noticed, the three--all in the front seat--were not wearing seat belts. They grumped audibly as he wrote up three $20 tickets, and Romero remembers watching as they grudgingly rearranged themselves in the car, front and back, to buckle up before they drove off.
