Associated Press

A 14-year-old girl who helped entertain President Reagan a week ago became the nation’s youngest heart-lung recipient today when surgeons here implanted the organs of an 11-year-old boy.

Elizabeth Burns of Norman, Okla., was in critical condition in intensive care following the operation at Presbyterian-University Hospital. Elizabeth played violin with the Oklahoma Youth Orchestra when Reagan visited Oklahoma City last Wednesday.
