When I was thirteen I was struck in the face by a hard-thrown baseball. After that time, I suffered regularly from nosebleeds. A doctor said the membrane in my nose was so thin I would have nosebleeds the rest of my life. The condition had existed from birth, he said, and was aggravated by the baseball incident.

The nosebleeds persisted and grew worse. While I was living in a dormitory at college, they were so severe as to frighten people around me. Several times I was sent to the college infirmary, where the diagnosis was the same as that of the doctor mentioned above. Later, when I was serving in the Navy, doctors said I had high blood pressure, to which they attributed the persistent nosebleeds. They traced the troubles to heredity, since my father suffered from the same conditions.
