\ fHHHHMM^^^^^^^Hi^HI^H^I^l^B^^MM^^MMM^^^Mlii^^HIH^^^^M Scientists Link Cancer, Improper Diet Migration from WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans who fail to eat a balanced diet or eat too much are promoting their chances for cancer, five scientists told Congress. However, the scientists were cautious when asked for details on what specific foods and brands would'be either good or bad for an individual. Improper diets are related to 60 per cent of all types of cancer in women and 41 per cent of those in men, Dr. Gio B. Gori, deputy director of the National Cancer Institute's division of cancer cause and prevention, told the Senate Select Nutrition Committee on Wednesday. The scientists were careful to emphasize that an unbalanced diet has not been found to be a cause of cancer but rather is associated with the disease's development. • An excess of fats, for example, has been especially linked in research to breast and colon cancer, they said. The panelists would not condemn any specific types or brands of food, despite urging by some senators. Gori said that he thought "any modification of our diet in the right direction should effect a decline in the incidences of these cancers in five to ten years." By way of comparison, if everyone stopped smoking, he said, it would be 10 years before lung cancer cases would noticeably decline nationwide. Smoking is "the single, clearest cause" of cancer, he said, and "the most preventable.... We don't need to smoke, we do need to eat." Others on the panel were Drs. Gerald Wogan, professor of food toxicology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Dave Kritchezski, of Philadelphia's Wistar Institute; Ernest L. Wynder, president of the American Health Foundation and editor of the Preventative Medicine Journal; and D.M. Hegsted, nutrition professor at Harvard University School of Public Health. Kritchezski recommended "a well-rounded diet, eaten in moderation." Sen. Henry Bellmon, R- Okla., asked what specific diet Gori would recommend for a 50-year-old male blue-collar worker who wanted to cut his chances of getting cancer. The scientist said such a man probably is overweight and would need to cut calories by reducing his intake of food with fat, such as meat, milk, sugars and starches. To make sure the worker "feels satisfied," Gori said, he should consume more fruits and vegetables to get bulk in his diet — even if that means Page 3 Garden City Telegram Thursday, July 29,1976 eating more fruit a few hours later to quiet his stomach. The man also should not smoke and should drink alcoholic beverages only moderately, Gori said. Wynder recommended not only reducing total calories in the diet but specifically cutting those coming from fat to 35 per cent of total calories and cutting cholesterol to less than 300 milligrams a day.

Countryside To City Stops WASHINGTON (AP) — The migration of Americans from the countryside to cities has stopped, creating a new challenge — finding ways to accommodate those who are returning to rural areas, the Agriculture Department says. > Walter A. Guntharp, administrator of the department's Rural Development Service, says "the new trend of rural population and growth" has lessened earlier worries of migration to cities in most areas. "Instead, rural leaders are asking how they can best develop their communities to accommodate the growing number of young as well as older people who are choosing to remain in rural areas or move to them," he said. Comments by Guntharp and other Agriculture Department officials were included in a new report by the rural development agency. Guntharp said there has been a net migration of about 350,000 people a year from urban centers to rural areas — those counties that have no city with a population as large as 50,000. "This is a complete reversal of the urbanward trend of population migration that prevailed from 1940 to the late 1960s," he said. Calvin Beale, a demographer in the Agriculture Department's Economics Research Service, said improved job opportunities, the growth of trade and services and other economic advantages have helped stem the city-bound tide. "But changing attitudes about rural life versus big-city life may be equally important in halting the migration, particularly among the young," Beale said. "Their attitudes about what is important to them are changing, and they are increasingly favoring smaller-scale communities as places to live." Court Blocks Natural Gas Price Jump THE SCHWEIKERS-Sen.

(AP Photo) Says Schweiker Selection Wise HUGOTON - Ronald Reagan's Kansas state chairman said Wednesday that Reagan's selection of Sen. Richard Schweiker, R-Pa., as his running mate was "wise" and he compared the ticket to the Kennedy-Johnson ticket of 1960. However, Don Concannbn, Hugoton attorney, said that it was too early to judge the impact of Reagen's unprecedented announcement. "When you make a bold Challenge Order Hangs self To gtate Guard A Garden City man being held at a jail in Pittsburgh, N.Y., hanged himself late Wednesday. Police in . Plattsburgh identified the man as Walter D. Wilson, 26. They said Wilson had been in the Clinton County Jail since May 9 on four counts of third degree weapons possession. Clinton County District Attorney Joseph Kelley said the man had been indicted on the weapons charges, had undergone a psychiatric examination, • and was awaiting trial. Kelley said Wilson pleaded guilty during his arraignment but had been allowed to withdraw his plea pending the outcome of the examination. A Haskell County Sheriff's spokesman said Wilson had been charged April 25 in Sublette for possession of a concealed weapon. He paid a fine and was released from custody, she said. WASHINGTON (AP) — The National ' Association of Government Employes challenges the legality of the Kansas National Guard being ordered to training duty during the week of the Republican National Convention. The GOP convention opens Aug. 16 in Kansas City, Mo., across the Missouri River from Kansas City, Kan. The association said in a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that it has been brought to its attention that "Republican Gov. Robert F. Bennett of Kansas has directed that three battalions of the state National Guard be ordered to training duty during the week of Aug. 16 rather than their normal weekend drill periods." The letter to Rumsfeld, released by the association Wednesday, said: "The official reason for this assignment, as declared by the Kansas Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Edward R. Fry (a Republican appointee), is to ensure rapid response to any 'tactical situation' which may arise during the Republican National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri." The association challenges both the legality and the propriety of the governor's action, said the letter, signed by Alan J. Whitney, executive vice president. It said the Guardsmen, while so assigned, will be on the federal payroll. "NAGE believes it is incumbent upon you, as Secretary of Defense, to take immediate steps to prohibit the use of National .Guard members on a patronage basis of this kind," the association said in its letter. At the Pentagon, a spokesman for the National Guard Bureau said it is usual for the Guard to have two weeks of training in the summer and within the authority of the state adjutant general to reschedule the time period. move like this, it makes it hard to make an immediate judgement," Concannon said. "In 10 days when the furor dies down, and most of it has come from Ford people anyway, we'll be able to see." Reagan, a former California governor, has mounted a determined challenge against President Gerald Ford for the Republican presidential nomination. But Concannon conceded that none of the Kansas delegates had probably changed, his mind because of the move. "If they voted today, it'd probably be 30 (for Ford) to four (for Reagan)," Con- 3 Apprehended Near Dighton Three persons who walked away from the adolescent section of Lamed State Hospital Wednesday were apprehended yesterday afternoon south of Dighton by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper. The three were held in Lane County jail at Dighton before being transported back to Lamed Wednesday afternoon, a spokesman at the sheriff's office there said. Details were sketchy this morning, but there were unconfirmed reports that the trio commandeered a car and led officers on a high-speed chase before they were apprehended. It is believed one of the three may be from Garden City, but names were being withheld pending determination of whether or not the three are juveniles. cannon said. "By the time the convention 'gets here, though, that could change." Concannon said the selection of Schweiker was acceptable to him. He. said Schweiker appealed to labor and could help the ticket in the northeast. In addition, Schweiker will balance the ticket, Concannon said, and he compared a Reagan-Schweiker ticket to the 1960 John Kennedy- Lyndon Johnson ticket. "I think this will be the same type coalition," Concannon said. He said it would be unwise to have two conservatives on the ticket and said the 1964 Republican team of Barry Goldwater and Bill Miller was a good example. Schweiker will appeal to moderate Republicans, Concannon said, and added that he hadn't heard any criticism of Reagan's move from Gov. Robert Bennett or Sen. James Pearson. WASHINGTON (AP) -The U.S. Court of Appeals is blocking a $l.5-billion a year increase in natural gas price ceilings while opponents seek to cancel the new ceilings. The court issued an order Wednesday to temporarily stop the higher rate ceilings approved on Tuesday by the Federal • Power 1 'Commission. Opponents said,the,new rate ceilings are so close to rates charged for unregulated intrastate gas that they amount to an FPC attempt to abandon its legal responsibility to regulate interstate prices. A coalition of 16 petitioners challenged the FPC rate ceilings Wednesday, asking the appellate court to prevent collection of higher rates until the court hears the case. The order granting a delay did not say if the appeals court would 'Reverse' Discrimination Ruling Made in Rights Suit WASHINGTON (AP) - In a i ruling against "reverse" discrimination, a federal judge says Georgetown University violated the civil rights of a white student by setting aside most of its first-year law school scholarships for minority applicants. ' 'There is no justification for saying that a 'minority' student with a demonstrated financial need of $2,000 requires more scholarship aid than a 'nonminority' student," U.S. District Judge Oliver Gasch ruled Wednesday. The judge said Georgetown's four-year-old practice of earmarking 60 per cent of, its firstyear law scholarships for minority students was "arbitrary" and a violation of the Civil Rights Act's bar against discrimination on the basis of race. The ruling is the latest in a series of federal court victories for persons who claimed they were subject to "reverse" discrimination by schools, ' corporations, or government agencies seeking to provide opportunities for racial minorities or women. Gasch's decision was a personal victory for J. Michael Flanagan, who sued Georgetown because there were no scholarships left for white students by the time he was admitted in 1973, although there were still scholarships for minorities. Flanagan complained that the minority students who garnered 60 per cent of the grants formed only 11 per cent of the class. Flanagan, 24, has since graduated and lives in suburban Alexandria, Va. He could not be reached for comment. i The judge said he would hold a future hearing on Flanagan's request for $3,700 in damages that the former student claimed he should have received in aid. A Part of Alaskan History Dies JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — They've closed the Lucky Lady saloon. The front door is draped with red and black crepe paper in memory of owner Mary Joyce — Alaska homesteader, nurse, airline stewardess, licensed pilot and dog mustier. But not all the sourdoughs who frequented the Lucky Lady think Miss Joyce would approve of the closing. "She wouldn't like it one damn bit," said one old-timer around the corner in Juneau's "wino alley." "She'd want us in there drinkin' a few and rememberin'. Hell, I'll miss her. But I don't feel sad none. She was one hell of a woman and lived a life that any man would envy." Miss Joyce died Tuesday of an apparent heart attack. Few, if any, of her friends knew her age. Those who did weren't talking. All they would say was that "she was a part of the history of Alaska." "Mary always lied about her age and I don't think I should tell now," said Mary Anne Greiner, a distant relative. But there were no lies in the stories Miss Joyce reveled in telling about her past. There are still too many people in this historic gold-mining town who were there and remember the old days. They remember her working as a stewardess for Northwest Airlines on some of the first regularly scheduled flights from Seattle to Alaska in the late 1930s. They remember her as one of the first licensed women seaplane pilots in Alaska. They remember her, all alone except for a Guernsey milk cow with a taste for salmon, staking out a homestead in the wilderness up the rugged Taku River. And most of all, they remember the solo 1,000-mile dog sled trip she took in the winter of 1935 from Juneau to Fairbanks to enter a Miss Alaska beauty contest. She didn't win. It was a rough trip for the slim, dark- haired woman. She covered 20 miles a day in subzero temperatures, running most of the way behind her sled and living off rolled oats and bear fat. It took her two months to reach Fairbanks, but she made it. And when somebody asked her why, she said, "I just wanted to see if I could do it." But some who remember say she began her reckless life following the death in 1932 of her first and only love, Hackley Smith. He was the son of a wealthy California woman who brought Miss Joyce to Juneau three years before as her nurse. Georgetown's attorneys argued in vain that the school's financial aid policies were a "bona fide affirmative action program to increase minority enrollment." They also claimed the school was not subject to the civil rights law, but Gasch said it was since Georgetown accepted $7 million in federal funds to build its Law Center. Hearing Set in Burglary Case Harold R. Miller, 28, 207 N. 2nd, charged with burglary of the Roughneck Inn, is in Finney County jail today in lieu of $1,000 bond. Preliminary hearing has been set for August 8. Miller was arrested early Wednesday morning at the scene of a break in at the tavern, 107 W. Santa Fe. Police said a patrolman noticed a padlock missing from a door at the tavern. Further investigation revealed that someone had attempted to break into various money boxes on coin .operated machines. Officers found Miller hiding under a booth. accept the case for review. Issued by Judges Charles Fahy and Spottswood Robinson III, the order imposed an immediate stay of the increase "until further order," Opponents of the higher FPC-approved rate ceiling ^said they, also were asking the.., 'FPtf (o'reconsider its' decision" approving-the boost. ; •••• '< '•> As approved by the FPC, the new rate ceiling would allow interstate natural gas pipelines to double and triple the previous price ceiling on new natural gas supplies sold by producers to the pipelines. The FPC said this would mean the average residential customer would pay about $15.60 more per year for natural gas, an increase of about 6 per cent. The FPC said the actual amount would depend on where in the country the customer lives. For instance, a customer in Florida might face a yearly increase of about $5.20 a year, but one in Ohio, where winters are colder, would see his bill boosted by some $23.14. The petitioners in the court case said it would take the FPC at least 60 days — probably longer — to review their request. They argued that without a court order blocking the new price ceilings, the higher rates would cost consumers at least $367 million during the appeal. They said there is virtually no chance consumers could get a refund if the FPC or the courts eventually overturn the price increase. The petition urging the court to block the new rates claimed the increases eventually will be ruled illegal by the courts. The FPC has maintained a price ceiling of 52 cents per thousand cubic feet on gas brought into the interstate market since Jan. 1, 1973. At the same time, unregulated gas sold in intrastate markets recently has commanded an average of $1.55 per thousand cubic feet. To make interstate pipelines more competitive for available gas supplies, the FPC authorized a new national price ceiling of $1.42 per thousand cubic feet in Tuesday's decision, with additional increases of one cent every three months.
