SIOPTliMBKR 29, 35 CENTS !AH PHI SS I M W YOKK TIMES e U.S.WomanSflllHeld Leased Wires SANTO DOMINGO, Domini- WAS1IINGTON (UPI) _ Ini- linl reports from surgeons who removed Betty Ford's right breast Saturday indicated she could havn an 85-90 percent chance of remaining cancer- free for five years and a 76 per- cent chance the disease will not return in the next decade. How closely Mrs. Ford's spe- cific chances fit these nation wide average statistics, the physicians said, will depend on whether any cancer cells had spread from the marble size lump in Mrs. Ford's breast to her lymph system. Once cancer r e a c li e s the lymph system, which can carry the disease In other parls of thi body, survival c h a n c e s de- crease. There is no such thing, strict- ly speaking, as a "cure" for cancer. But the American Can- cer Society considers that a cancer victim who survives for five years or more without a recurrence of Hie disease lias, in effect, been cured. Alt Traces Dr. William Fouty, chief of surgery at Beihesda Naval hos- pital and one of the two sur- geons who performed the opcr ation on Mrs. Ford, said all vis- ible I races of her cancer had been removed. He cautioned, however, that "one can't make the statement I that she is relieved of all ma- lignancy." The crucial question of wheth- er cancer cells have spread to Mrs. Ford's lymph system, Fou- ty said, will be answered :in the next three or four days by a pathological examina- tion of lymph (issue removed Saturday. But, he said, at preset "there is no evidence it has spread to other parls of the body, and no symptoms." Follow-Up? Fouty said the examination of the lymph tissues, plus Mrs. WOUNDED HOSTAGE Police carry a hostage who thTcheT VeneZUe'an Saturday' He was --UPI Telcpliolo escaped by jumping through a window from gunshot wounds in can Republic One of the hos- tages held under a death threat by leftist guerillas in the oc- cupied Venezuelan consulate es- caped Saturday but was critical- ly wounded in the chest, Domin- ican police sources said. The guerillas, holding U. S. diplomat Barbara Hulchinson and at least five other hostages, extended their deadline for Ihe release of 37 political prisoners and payment oi a Si-million ransom from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Iowa time Saturday. The dead- line passed without action. Guerilla leader Radamcs Vargas said in a tele- phone interview shortly after 11 a.m. lhat if his demands were not met by the deadline he would "act according to the cir- cumstances." Out Window He said that a Japanese cap- live fled through a window after asking permission to go to the bathroom. He did not mention any shooting. Police sources said the man, bottle he said contained a note "of utmost importance" from Miss Hutchison to the U. S. em- bassy. Police confiscated the bottle and turned it over to the em- bassy, but officials Ihere de- clined to comment on its con- tents.

If cancer cells are found ii the lymph-bearing (issue doc- tors probably would begin radi- ation treatments hoping to kil the remaining cancer cells. "People do respond lo fur- ther Fouty said. Breast cancer, which attacks one out of every 15 American women, is Ihe leading cause of cancer deaths among women. The American Cancer Society has estimate! the disease would slrike women and kill 33 000 in 197-1 alone. "Highly Effective" Doctors do not. yet know what causes cancer, although they suspect it is a virus, and Fouly said there was nothing Mrs. Ford could have done lo keep herself from beini; a cancer victim.

The senate foreign relations committee released transcripts of hearings last July into allega- tions lhat Kissinger had lied during his confirmation hear- ings as secretary of slate about his role in Nixon administration wiretapping. Kissinger had threatened lo resign unless the senate panel cleared his name completely. It so, and the transcripts dis- closed for the first lime Kis- singer's line of defense, his views of the late FBI director and the apologetic reactions of the senators at the hearing. "Security Risks" In essence, Kissinger said Hoover alone had singled out three Kissinger aides as "se- curity risks" and ordered their phones lapped as part of a 1969 drive by Ihe White House "plumbers" lo plug leaks of na- tional security information. On July 23, Kissinger testified lhat he had, in fad, ignored Hoover's advice not lo hire the three men whose names were deleted from the transcripts for Ihe staff he then had as a presidential advisor of national security affairs. Hoover said Ihe FBI consid- ered Ihem sccurily risks and conceded he had prob- ilily angered Hoover by hiring them anyway. "f knew all Ihesc three indi- Kissinger said.

Chief among these was a consensus that culling the fed- eral budget will not do very much very quickly In reduce Ihe rale of inflation. The existence of consensus A door is what Ihe family (log is perpetually on Ihe wrung .side by such divcr.se speakers as Kep. Conable, a conservative Kepublican from New York and Arthur Okuii. wtyi was chairman oi the Coiinci] ol F.eononiie Advisers in tin' admini.slralion. I' i1 s p i I o tin1 widely expressed belief lhal budget- culling will have no rapid ef- ts nil inflation, Ford, in his speech lo ference, disclosed lhal he would .shortly "send lo the congress a plan lo keep feder- al outlays at or under billion." This would he about ijiF> billion less than estimated in January and also repre- sents a target thai Ford and foniH'r President both previously committed Ihem- selves to. Ford said he would outline for congress and I lie public within 10 days his recommen- dations for "a coherent, and consistent" inflation-fighting program and indicated it would call for major lax re- form. I It1 a I s o "three steps I have just lakcn." The President said he lias; Consolidated by executive order Ihe government's do meslie and foreign economy under an Economic Policy Board, lo be headed by Treasury Secretary Simon.

Appointed Princeton econo- mist Albert Rces lo head Ihe Council on Wage and Price Stability recently authorized by congress at Ford's request. Ideas lhal were mentioned by various speakers as hav- ing garnered widespread sup- port in the series of 12 pre- summit meetings leading up lo Ihe final conference includ- ed the following: There should he some form of tax-relief fur low-income persons, who have been hurt the worst by inflation. Stronger government efforts arc needed lo combat the en- ergy shot-1 age, including -maintenance of a lough line against the oil-producing na- tions, development of great IT domestic sources of ener- gy, and stricter conservation measures. There was also a consensus, though apparently a .slighter one, for mainte- nance of price controls on do- mestic crude oil. Vigorous enforcement of an li-lrusl laws lo break up mo- nopolies and bring down pric- es is needed. This was cou- pled with recommendations that Ihe .so called j'air trade laws which price fix- 1111; bc> abolished. A program of public sen ice employment is needed to aid Ilinso who will lose their jobs because of Ihe economic slow- down. Some further liberalizing of credit policy by the Federal Keserve system would be de- sirable. Price and wage controls should not be rcimpo.scd.
