The wgn placed by a worker on the project hopes for a rrcn or go signal for lhe launching of the minion on Wednesday United die Dr Mclvin Krant chief oncologist at the Shattuck Hos pital in Boston criticized the attitude which most families and medical workers have toward the dying person One of the larger problems the patient faces he said is that no one is willing to tell him that he is dying In many cases he said the doctor does not inform the patient lhal he is dying and nurses and social workers oflen evade the patients questions because they are afraid of of fending the doctor But said Dr Krant this is just passing ihe buck U is aso the respon sibility of the social worker to tell the patient he is dying Cant say goodbye Mrs Maureen Stroll 3 regis tered nurse said Ihe patient not only needs to have a voice in whether his treatment should be continued or stopped but also should have an opportunity lo say goodbye In friends and relatives She said it is important that friends and relatives be willing to discuss with the patient the fact that he is dying rather than avoiding the issue and making the patient feel like an outcast The dying person cannot say goodbye unless there is some one to listen she said nimiiniiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiniiiiiimMiiiminim Scores COLLEGE Williams 91 Bowdoin 68 Western New England 85 Eastern Nazarene 84 Bentley 98 Lowell Tech 70 St Anselms
