Speaking Out Chamber Answers Letter To the editor: The Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce is replying to a letter published Oct. 11 signed "Concerned Citizen" regarding the Chamber of Commerce charging for printed community information. The writer stated: "After all, what are our taxes going for?" The Chamber of Commerce IS NOT TAX SUPPORTED, as alleged by the writer, but is an organization of business and. professional people who pay dues to support its work. The dues money helps pay the costs Other Side To the editor: In answer to "A Very Upset Person" Oct. 10 Speaking Out. I'm with you when it comes to people on welfare who don't need it or abuse it. I get food stamps myself, for my son and me. You are condemning in a very generalized way. Handicapped and older persons do deserve and get them if they are not too proud. Sometimes being proud is also a form of stupidity. I'm a disabled person and I have been sitting, as you say, "on my duff." In fact, sitting for four frightening and frustrating years. I never thought I would need welfare, but I did. More Just To the editor: In the Oct. 11 copy of your paper the letter from a citizen asking for separate stores for food stamp users to buy from gets our complete approval. If our tax money is going to buy products we cannot afford, then why should we have to endure the agony of seeing those People Honor Bing SPOKANE (AP) - Today is the first anniversary of Bing Crosby's death, and Gonzaga University has announced it plans to honor its most famous alumnus with a memorial.

Livestock, which under normal circumstances might respond to bumper feed crops with a gradual slowing of prices, are under price pressure from reduced herds of cattle, says Ray Daniels, at Chase Econometrics, a forcasting unit of Chase Manhattan Bank. Like a number of other private food-industry economists, Daniels forecasts food inflation of about 8 percent next year, only a slight reduction from this year's rapid spiral. Both government and private economists expect overall food prices thisyear are to average about 10 percent above 1977. That's the highest food inflation rate since 1974, when prices rose more than 14 percent. The Department of Agriculture hasn't yet made its official 1979 forecast, but department economists are talking about food-price increases in a 5 percent to 10 percent range. The Department's latest monthly report, released this past week, said this year's corn crop should be a record 6 82 billion bushels, up 7 percent from last year, and 1.79 billion bush- Squad Runs 7:29 a.m., Edgewood Ave Oct. 13; 103 ; Dan Dorn, T2 ill; first aid. 7:32 a.m., Oct. 13; auto accident; 820 Pierce Ave.; Charles Sisson, 59, 225 Harrison Ave.; refused treatment; to Lancaster-Fairfield County Hospital. 11:10 a m., Oct. 13; auto accident Coonpath Rd.; Linda Hughes, 27, West Rushville; refused treatment. 12:51 p.m., Oct. 13; Forest Rose Training Center; Betty Flynn, 44, Pleasantville; ill; first aid; to hospital. 4:09p.m., Oct. 13; to 5' j E.

Broad Si. Phone 653-1253 els of soybeans, up 2 percent from last year's record. The wheat harvest was projected at 1.78 billion bushels, a 12-percent drop from last year reflecting an attempt to cut back production after bumper crops in previous years. AH that may have scattered effects on such food items as bread, cereal and other grain-related products, say some economists. It could also further encourage production of poultry and pork, which depend on such grains for feed. But it will scarcely touch one of the major culprits of food inflation beef. The reason beef keeps getting more expensive is that cattlemen, in response to low prices in recent years, began cutting back on production. Cattle-Fax, the marketing arm of the National Cattlemen's Association, estimates that the U.S. cattle herd has been reduced to about 111 million head from a peak of 132 million in 1975. During roughly the same period the price of a pound ol hamburger has fluctuated fron 92 cents at the start of the cut back to a low of 72 cents in April 1976. Last month the average price was about $1.15 a pound, and Cattle-Fax economist Tommy Beale says prices of about $1.30 a pound at this time next year are likely. Beef prices in general for this year will be about 20 percent higher than last year, and they expected to rise 10 to 15 percent in 1979, says Beale. He adds that it may be 1984 or so before stocks are rebuilt to levels that would result in a "settling of prices." Aside from the special situation for beef, food industry economists are quick to point out that the business of forecasting price trends can be quite tricky. For instance, last January most private and government economists looked for moderate inflation of about 5 percent, or half of the Department of Agriculture's current forecast. That as before severe weather had crippling etfects on the hog industry and created unexpected price increases in some fruits and vegetables. Scientists around the world are learning more about a little gland that can play a big role in a woman's monthly cycle. The pituitary gland, a small organ attached to the brain, produces hormones, substances that affect most bodily functions. Sometimes the pituitary gland secretes too much of a hormone called prolactin. This can cause women to develop amenorrhea (not menstruate) and galactorrhea (an inappropriate secretion of milk). Fortunately, scientists have also found a drug that can be used to treat these problems. Called bromocriptine mesylate, it inhibits the secretion of prolactin. The drug has been introduced in the United States by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals as Parlodel '1, and scientists are currently looking into other uses for it, such as dealing with infertility, postpartum lactation, Parkinson's disease and apromegaly.
