The findings by Dr. James E. Ehstrom of the UCLA School of PuMic Health and Dr. Norman E, Breslow of the University of Washington were published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. ""Enstrom said the rtsearchers looked for a fdalionship between cancer and consumption of beer, wine* liqnor and cigarettes. They found no correlation between any cancer and wine drinking, he said, but the statistics trsed were for 1960. when there were not many wine drinkers in the United States. They found a relationship between hard Dijuor consumption and cancer of" the esophaps in men. ^jfenstrom said, but found many %iore statistical relationships involving beer. Checked against 20 varieties of cancer for men and 19 for women, states where more beer is drunk had higher than average incidences of cancer of tte large intestine stomach, fectum and kidneys in both djres, liver and breast in females and bladder in males. the study showed. Raid Fails To Flush Out Patty NASHVILLE. Tenn. (UPI) — Nashville police raided a house suspected of housing fugitive heiress Patricia Hearst late Tuesday night, but a white woman who had lived there for a time was gone, officers said. Detective Sgt. Sherman Nickens said the woman could iave been Miss Hearst. Heavily armed officers surrounded the house in a predominantly black area arid ordered its occupants outside. Two black men and two black women emerged. Nickens said two of the occupants picked out pictures of Miss Hearst as being the woman who had lived in the house for an undetermined length of time. The occupants had conflicting reports on when the white woman left. They said she had a baby with her and left in a car with Florida tags with a black man. One witness said she was in the house as late as last Saturday. Nickens said a picture found in the house had a resemblance to Miss Hearst. He said officers had been .working on the case since receiving a tip Tuesday from a grocery delivery boy. who said a white woman staying in the house looked like pictures he had seen in the newspaper of Miss Hearst. In the states with the lowest beer consumption — South Carolina. Alabama and Arkansas —the average resident drank about 26 quarts a year. The death rate from rectal cancer in those states is about 3 per 100,000 persons. Rhode Island and New York, where per capita beer consumption is more than three times as much —about 80 quarts a year —have the highest rectal cancer mortality rates in the nation, about 10 per 100,000. or more than three tin.es the death rate in the three southern states. The same general pattern appeared in statistics from the 24 Half • Acre Is Burned About a half-acre of property owned by Ralph C. Moyer. Myerstown RD 1, adjacent to the Lebanon Valley Golf Course, burned late yesterday afternoon. The flames threatened a storage building nearby, according to Chief Mahlon Hemperly Myerstown Goodwill Fire Co. Cause of the fire was unknown. Hemperly said the fire was primarily confined to leaves and underbrush, but did spread to firewood stacked against the side of an aluminum-covered building. Although the fire scorched the paint off an area six by two feet, Hemperly said damage to the building was "negligible." Inside the building was a house trailer, golf carts and lawn equipment. Apparently Moyer pulled the stacked fire wood away from the structure, saving further damage. Hemperly said 60 men from the Goodwill and Keystone fire companies were on the call for more than an hour. Three Cars In Accident Damage estimated at $900 resulted Tuesday afternoon when three cars were involved in a crash at Chestnut and Liberty Streets, it was reported by Patrolman Hiester R. Gingrich. Sterling C. Freeman, 53. 101 E. Penn Ave., Cleona; Harvey W. Embright, 52, Manheim RD 4, and Esther Kline, 60, 2002 State Drive, were listed as the drivers. Damage to the Ebright car was estimated at $550, and to the Freeman and Kline vehicles at $175 each. Ordered To Pay Support LOS ANGELES (UPI) Film producer Harold Hecht. 64. was ordered Tuesday to pay S4.000 a month in temporary support to his estranged wife. Martine. 38. Hecht's movies include "Birdman of Alcatraz" and "Marty." 1 The Hechts separated in September after 12 years of marriage and have three children. Mrs. Hecht's lawyer said she will retain possession of their S350.000 home until division of an estimated §2 million in community property. foreign countries surveyed, they said. Wisconsin has the highest per capita beer consumption, an average 100 quarts a year, and ranked just behind New York and Rhode Island in deaths from rectal cancer, about 9 per 100.000. California, with 59 quarts average, had seven deaths per 100.000. A weakness of the study, the authors noted, was that it is based on statewide averages, not directly on beer drinkers. But. they said, a study in New York showed that 35 per cent of men with rectal cancer and 31 per cent with intestinal cancer were beer drinkers, compared with 1.9 per cent beer drinkers in a control group. Fire Scare The Lickdale Fire Co. investigated a fire yesterday afternoon just off'the Fredericksburg to Lickdale Road, a quarter-mile east of Lickdale, which turned out to be controlled, burning. Chief Eugene Moore said the fire had been reported to the state police at the Jonestown barracks, but was found to be attended by an unidentified person with sufficient equipment to control the flames. OUR DIAMONDS ARE NTVER DULL Dull diamonds do exist. They have no fire because they're badly cut or of poor color. A small well-cut diamond can flash brilliantly across a room. You'll never get a dull diamond from us. Because we insist on value ana quality and brilliance. We'd be a dull. unsuccessful store if we didn't. "USE OUR LAYAWAY PLAN" THOMAS E. CLARK kwekr— Member American Gem Society 636 Cumberland Street Next To Royer's Cake Box Phone 272-8851 BUENOS AIRES (UPI) - An army officer kidnaped by leftist guerrillas 10 months ago was shot to death Tuesday night when police closed in on a "people's jail" located in the back of a speeding van. Police sources said the driver of the truck shot Lt. Col. Jorge Ibarzabal in the face as patrol cars chased the van through the streets of suburban Quilmes. The sources said a policeman was wounded before authorities finally cut off the guerrilla van and captured the driver. A second truck carrying up to six guerrillas managed to get away. The sources said provincial police spotted a caravan of two trucks traveling through Quilmes Tuesday night and tried to question the drivers. The occupants opened fire and sped off with patrol cars in pursuit. The sources said officers heard shots as police cut off one of the trucks. Inside, Ibarzabal lay dead in the back with bullet holes in his face. Police sources said he was in a "people's jail" cell in the back of the truck. The cell was covered with a windowless canvas tent to prevent him from finding out where he was. Ibarzabal's death came five days after his wife took out an advertisement in a Buenos Aires newspaper telling him, "I b*g you to be strong, as you have been up to now. because it adds to our strength." The People's Revolutionary Army captured Ibarzabal Jan. 19 at a tank garrison base located 180 miles south of Buenos Aires. The post commander and his wife died in the attack. The Marxist guerrilla group, known by the Spanish acronym ERP. also holds an army officer captured during a raid on an ammunition depot and the operator of an Argentine steel mill. At least 185 persons have been killed this year in guerrilla battles, kidnapings and shootouts between leftist and rightist members of the late President Juan Peron's labor-based political movement.
