January 5, 1987

WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Reagan is receiving regular medical reports on the condition of ailing CIA Director William J. Casey, the White House said today.

Spokesman Larry Speakes said Col. John Hutton, physician to the president, ″has kept up with the Casey situation through the doctors and briefed the president.″

″I don’t have anything to add to what’s been made public,″ Speakes said.

When asked how frequently Hutton was briefing the president, the spokesman said, ″He’s doing it on a regular basis.″

Speakes said the White House does not know how soon Casey might be able to return to work, but is not seeking a successor.

The CIA director is recovering from Dec. 18 surgery for a malignant brain tumor. He was listed in stable condition on Monday, a Georgetown University hospital spokeswoman said.
