College of Virginia scientists have discovered a simple test they say appears to be 87-per-cent accurate in detecting cancer. A report on the findings was given by one of the team, Dr. Giovanni Costa, at the International Cancer Con- gress in Florence, Italy. In the test as now adminis- tered, the patient swallows a capsule of fat containing radioactive carbon-14, and 20 hours later exhales into a bag' like device. Scientists then measure the amount of radioactive carbon dioxide in the exhaled air Amounts of radioactive car- bon dioxide above certain limits seem to indicate the presence of tumors somewhere in the said. ATTENTION! OPENING NOV. 1ST THE HAIR HUT Phww 327-6730 including a paper by a Regina researcher, has led to sharp controversy among delegates to the llth International Cancer Congress here. Researchers from Israel and Finland also reported that population studies indicated breast cancer is on the rise. But others from the United States- and Australia said breast cancer appeared stable. The evidence presented last week at a symposium on trends in cancer incidence was questioned by several epidemiologists, researchers who determine the state of diseases in large population groups. The American and Australian scientists said there had been an apparent rise in recent years, but it was due to- better detection through mass 'screening prevention programs, not an actual rise in cases. Dr. T. H. Barclay of the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic hi Regina had reported that a study of breast cancer in 800 women showed there was a marked increase in incidence. "In Saskatchewan the crude incidence rate for cancer of the female breast almost doubled in the 25 year period 1946 to he said. Dr. Ruth Steinitz of the Israel Cancer Registry said that a survey of a group of women in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv showed an increase of two per cent in the incidence rate of breast cancer in women over middle age. Dr.-Erkki Saxen of the Fin- nish. Cancer Registry said: "It is expected that in 1980 lung cancer in men. will form one third of all new cancer cases and that breast cancer will be the most common one fifth of cancer in females." The reports appeared to confirm statistics presented by the Connecticut Tumor Registry that showed a doubl- ing in the breast cancer rate in women under 49. However, in a survey of cancer patterns in Australia in the period 1950-1970, Dr. Nigel Gray of East Melbourne reported that there has been a rise in lung cancer but not in breast cancer. Dr. I. Rotkin, an epidemiologist at the Univer- sity of Illinois, urged ap- parent increases be judged in the light of time, mass educa- tion programs, screening and improved medical techniques. He said that 20 years ago a women who had a lump in her breast often did not consult her doctor, and so her case did not get into the breast cancer statistics. Ann Landers HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

Dear Ann Landers No earth problem, but I love to complain. In the' past months, I have: 1 Made a payment bank-against a new loan and it was credited to someone else's account It seems the bank gave me a coupon book with someone else's account number on it. 2. Cashed a check at a drive in window and receiv- ed cash in the amount of 3. Deposited my paycheck into my account and received a deposit slip for The dis- crepancy was approximately 9600. In all these instances the errors were finally corrected, but the bank did not pay ME a cent. Yet when I make a mis- take, I am charged 3 or 4 dollars. Moreover, they didn't even bother to apologize for wasting my time in fact, they .became quite hostile and gave the impression that they do not make mistakes. Are banks so wealthy they can afford to be snobbish? A Fan Of Ralph Nader Dear Nader Fan: I sent your letter to William F. Murray. Chairman of Board of Harris Trust and Curling Season Is In Full Swing and We Have A Large Selection Of CURLING SHOES For Joe GREEN'S SHOES DOWNTOWN ON SIXTH STREET Savings Bank in Chicago. He replied Dear Ann'Landers That letter was a real horror story. If I were that person I would change banks. I don't know what those and charges were for, but if a bank is going to charge for overdrafts, account balances that fall below a stated minimum, and other oc- currences associated with ac- count relationships, the customer has every right to expect top grade service in return not to mention courtesy at all times. Arrogance toward the customer went out of fashion in the banking business a long time ago. William F. Murray Dear Mr. Murray Thank you for sitting in my seat today. Your advice, "Change was right on the but- ton. I hope the person who wrote and others who are not treated with courtesy by their banks will follow your wise counsel.

Before I knew it we were talking about some pret- ty intimate things. "C" is a cute kid and also a camera nut. He asked me to pose for some nude pictures one night and after about four beers I agreed. Yesterday he showed me the pictures he had developed in his darkroom and I nearly died Everything snows. "C" offered me the chance to buy the pictures and the negatives for or he'd go to my husband. It is worth to gel this terrible thing off my mind Please rush your advice make it practical -I'm Scared To Death Dear S. The name of the game is "Blackmail." Don't pJay Tell your husband what you did and ask his forgiveness As for that "cote kid" he's a bom and if you let him in the boose again yon sfennM have your head examined. Widow files suit against doctor CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) A widow has filed, a damage suit against a doctor who she claims told her she was suffering from terminal cancer. A second doctor later found no evidence of the dis- ease. The suit filed in St. Louis County Circuit Court by Doro- thy Doyle says Dr. James Mil- ler refused to re-check a 1972 biopsy report that indicated the presence of malignant cancer. It says a second biopsy per- formed by another doctor showed that Mrs. Doyle was not suffering from the dis- ease. The suit asks damages for mental anguish and cnarges carelessness and negligence in the preparation of the first biopsy report. Also named i.s defendants in the suit are Millen Pathology Services Inc. in Brentwood, Mo.; St. Francis Hospital in Washington, and the Mogul Corp. in Chagrin Falls, Ohio Sale DOORS CLOSE THURSDAY, OCT. 31 9P.M.
