By ROBERT COCRNAR Newspaper Enterprise Assn. (First in a Series) NEW YOHK - (NBA) More than a few residents of a quiet southern town were disturbed not too long ago when they saw the headline in their afternoon newspaper. "Wanted Dead or A H v e," it read. "If you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Mr. and Mrs. Barton Younger, please call the America Cancer Society." Had the Society launched a missing persons bureau as a sideline? Was it helping the FBI? Had the Youngers skipped town with contributions collected in the last cancer drive? The townsfolk didn't know. Nevertheless, within an hour after the paper was published, five people called the Society and gave it the couples' new Insurance Companies Are Bracing for Medicare address lii a distant city. The Yourigers were being traced in this melodramatic fashion because they are me- bers of a clan of more than a million Americans who for nearly six years have served as subjects in a nationwide study to find answers to two questions: Who are the "high risk" people who get cancer while their friends and neighbors do not? Why? Of the many cancer enigmas, these were s e 1 e c t e d by the American Cancer Society as tar- jets for the largest study of ,ts kind ever undertaken anywhere in the world. It's called the Cancer Prevention Study. When the last follow - up is completed this year, more than 300 million bits of information will have been collected by ffi.OOO volunteers. The information, when analyzed, wjll present important clues to the most raffling medical puzzle of our times. Dr. E.

It can affect their business in three ways: First, health and hospitalization policies now in effect for at least 10 million Americans over 65 will lose much of their appeal and are now in process of being updated. Involved is ~ total of a billion dollars a year in premiums. Second, new supplementary policies to cover costs that med- icare doesn'* are being offered by a number of insurance companies, both to the elderly now covered privately and those who aren't but whose interest is aroused by the advent of medi- care. Third, at least 16 insurance companies and 32 Blue Shield plans will become contractors to IN THK CHANCERY COURT FOR THE CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI, COUNTY, ARKANSAS DORRIS M.

They will determine reasonable doctor charges and pay these fees under the rules laid out by the Social Security Administration under the second part of medicare —Plan B. Plan A plan covers hospitalization. Plan B —to which the elderly must contribute $3 a month — reimburses them for many medical expenses, not included in Plan A. After the insurance companies pay the doctors, hospitals, and others, they will collect ; from the Social Security Admin- jistration. * * * In addition, the 76 Blue Cross- Blue Shield operations in the nation, with 5.7 million subscribers, will offer some medicare supplements, both in and out of the hospitals. Although most insurance companies with existing hospital and health policies are preparing new plans after medi- care starts, some will push them hard while others will not. The latter will let present sub scribers take the modified poll- cis but won't go after new business. Pushing for new sales to supplement medicare, which covers most but not all medical expenses, will be such companies as Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States, Aetna Life & Casualty, Continental Casualty. The more passive approach will be taken by Bankers Life & Casualty, Metropolitan Life Insurance, and Mutual of Oman.

The study* which WBI launched in 1999, has already developed an incredible amount of data in which not only cancer researchers are vitally interested. Although the primary purpose of the study is naturally to cure and prevent cancer, the statisticians are uncovering many bonuses. For example, out of the million persons originally interviewed, about 45,000 have al. ready died and, as expected, a large proportion of them died from heart and circulatory diseases. It is not surprising, therefore, that results are of considerable interest to specialists in many fields.

Alfred Hitchock, after seeing her in a television commercial, picked the excitinfe young blonde to star in two of his thrillers. Then Charlie Chaplin chose her. It rarely falls to the lot of a screen newcomer to work consecutively for two such top directors. The experience certainly thrilled Miss Hedren, and left her a bit worried about whom she will work for next. "It is hard to compare Hitch and Charlie," she said over a cup of coffee. "Both are taskmasters and demand perfection. But they arrive at it from different direc- tions. "Hitch directs through conversation and vocabulary. He tells you clearly what he wants. "But Charlie? Well, it's like watching all Ms old movies. He directs by showing you. He takes the part of each character in turn and acts it out himself." Tippl, who started as a model at the age of 13 in a Minneapolis department store, isn't sure just what she'll do next. "I don't want to wait myself out Of this business," she said frankly, "but working for Hitch and Charlie has been very special to me, and now I'm going to wait for something special to come along." * + * Behind Tippi's petal-lovely face dwells a firm and methodical mind, inherited from Swed- LAST MONTH-IN HISTORY Thunderstorms Mt off raging floods 25 fat deep in Dallas.

But were it not for the 68,000 volunteers who were willing to stay with the study for six years it is doubtful that any information would have been obtained. the volunteers are 'Average Americans from everywhere in the nation, from any age group and any occupation. "Without their willingness to give their time without pay, the survey could never have been started. It would have cost more than $40 million if handled by professional workers and, even then, I doubt th?t any amounl of money could buy this kint of infectious zest ana determination."
