Ladles', Men's, Children's Olympic Tartans Talisman Motor Inn 137 Carting Ave. fl 725-1029 H MILAN (AP) The leader of an Italian team that has discovered a combination drug treatment hailed as a breakthrough in treatment of breast cancer warns it is not an "absolute remedy" and that more testing will be needed. "Let's hope we can save thousands of lives," Dr. Gianni Bonadonna said. "Hopes are justified. But there is no certainty. More tests and studies over the next three years will be needed." Dr. Bonadonna and a team of associates at the National Cancer Institute of Italy developed a treatment combining three drugs which resulted In a sharp reduction in the recurrence of the disease among women who had been operated on for advanced breast cancer. The treatments and the results were reported in the New England Journal of Medicine and termed of "monumental importance." The three drugs are cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and fluorouracil, or CMF. "The drugs we used for our study are on the market and available to patients for treatment in community hospitals," said Dr. Bonadonna, 41. "But patients and public opinion must not think we have developed the absolute remedy. "The main point is that physicians should be aware of the new possibility and that patients learn that something is being done for them." His team reported that in a 27-month experiment with 386 women who had had radical mastectomies removal of the breast, lymph nodes and nearby muscles cancer recurred in five per cent of the 207 women who had the combined drug treatment for a year and in 24 per cent of the 179 who did not get the drugs. Dr. Bonadonna said the next step in his study is to treat patients for six months to determine the effectiveness of the combined drugs when administered for a shorter period of time.

My daughter uses her father's shaving cream for her legs and that can was sure leaving rust marks on my bathtub. I solved the problem by placing a plastic lid on the bottom of the can. Now there's no rust ring on my bathtub. M. RATHBUN DEAR HELOISE: Fitted sheets wear thin in the middle when the edges are still good. I buy two yards of flowered or striped 42-Inch prints on sale and sew it over the thin middle. Then I cut the old thin part out from under the print. I cut a strip about a quarter inch off the print and sew it just below the wide hem of the top sheet. Sometimes I buy enough print for a pair of pillowcases to match. Presto! I have a new set of sheets! Mrs. E.A.VEST
