Budget cuts hurt children with cancer The Salina Journal Thursday, April 4,1985 Page 16 I! Ill SAN DIEGO (AP) - Hundreds of children with cancer might die each year because federal budget cuts have slowed progress toward improved therapies, a leading cancer specialist said Wednesday. Denman Hammond, who heads the Children's Cancer Study Group, said cancer researchers are "simply going to have to spend less mon- ey" because of the budget cuts. The study group is one of two multi-university programs that treat and study about 80 percent of American children with cancer. Hammond said there has been a cut of about 20 percent in the past two years in National Cancer Institute funding to the Children's Cancer Study Group, the Pediatric On- CHRIST'S RESURRECTION EASTER SUNDAY 6:30 a.m SUNRISE SERVICE Featuring choir and orchestra, drama and scenery to tell the Easter Story in song and scripture. 8:30,10:50 a.m. and6:00p.m WORSHIP SERVICES Featuring Choir, orchestra, solos, ensembles and messages by Pastor Colaw 8:30 "Confessions of Simon Peter" 10:30 "Confessions of Simon Peter" 6:00 p.m. "Who Was Really Betrayed...Jesus or Judas?

He said that those cuts could cause the deaths of "much more than scores" of American children with cancer who might otherwise be saved. Hammond said he thought the annual death toll could reach into the hundreds. "I think that's the inescapable conclusion you come to talking about children who will get cancer in future years," he said. Hammond made his comments during the American Cancer Society's annual science writers' seminar. Scientists at the meeting reported progress in the effort to save the lives of the 6,000 U.S. children who develop cancer each year. Bob Hadsell, a National Cancer Institute at the meeting, said that Hammond was "basically correct" in estimating the overall reduction in two years at 20 percent. But another NCI spokesman, Paul Van Nevel, said Hammond's contention that children will die because of the cuts "certainly can't be substantiated. The institute has felt the budget is adequate to fund all the high-priority programs." The Children's Cancer Study Group and Pediatric Oncology Group each get about $4 million in annual National Cancer Institute funding and involve researchers at about 25 to 30 medical centers, where new therapies are used on children with cancer so their effectiveness can be evaluated. But he said participating medical centers are being forced by cutbacks to fire staffers and abandon promising research strategies. Hammond, a researcher at the University of Southern California, blamed the cuts both on overall spending reductions and on congressional emphasis on basic research over clinical research, which is the application of fundamental discoveries in an effort to help people.

Woman to serve town after lying about rape ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A 19- year-old woman must pay a $150 fine and do community service work for filing a false rape report that sent her former boyfriend to jail for more than a year. Kathryn Hargis Tucci of Laurel was sentenced Tuesday to perform 1,000 hours of community work with sexual assault victims, preferably at a county center for rape victims. "I want you exposed to the real trauma of someone who has been exposed to a rape experience," Judge Robert Heller Jr. told the woman. Heller told Tucci that if no arrangement could be made for her to work with rape victims, he wanted her to spend the time as a volunteer in the county jail "where you can see what it means to have your liberty denied you." Tucci's case was handled in Juvenile Court because she was 17 when her former boyfriend, Mark F. Bowles, now 23, of Hanover, was charged with raping her in August 1982. Bowles was convicted of assault and battery six months later and was sentenced to 18 months in prison. He was released by another judge in May, after serving 13% months, when Tucci admitted to the false accusation. When informed of the sentence, Bowles said, "I've chalked it up to experience. It has been a lesson to me to pick my friends wisely. I've had a good time since I've been out, and I try not to think about it."

Hunger album certified gold NEW YORK (AP) - The album version of a song recorded by U.S. artists to aid the hungry in Africa has been certified gold after selling 500,000 copies in less than 48 hours, a recording industry group said today. The album version of "We Are the World," recorded by 46 stars including Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie, was released Monday. By Tuesday hardly a copy could be found. The Recording Industry Associ-, ation of America certified the album as gold on Tuesday. Between $7 and $7.50 is donated to the USA for Africa relief fund for each album sold. The nonprofit fund was set up by the U.S. recording stars to aid the hungry in Africa. The single has been certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum by RIAA and has netted the fund an estimated $8 million. Rep. Silvio Conte is ready to do battle with bugs. Representative goes buggy about roaches WASHINGTON (AP) - The way Rep. Silvio Conte tells it, there are so many cockroaches in the nooks and crannies of congressional power on Capitol Hill that when he opens his office door late at night the roaches are waltzing his desk around the room. Brigades of roaches are on the march, he said, "at least a trillion of them." So, fueled with a stream of one- liners, wearing plastic bugs and encouraged by a gift of 35,000 Broach traps from a home-district "roach- buster" manufacturer, the congressman launched his "Conte- Crush-a-Cockroach Campaign" Tuesday on the marble steps of the House of Representatives. Tourists asked, "What is that man doing?" Conte, helped by an aide, stripped off his blue blazer with the seal of the House on the breast pocket and pulled on an exterminator's white jumpsuit dotted with large pinned- on plastic bugs. He appealed to President Reagan to enlist in the cockroach war "to get rid of as many of the troublesome cockroaches that run around the halls of Congress as possible." Conte told the wondering crowd: "So please join me in this war on Capitol cockroaches and — squash one for the Gipper." As he talked, peering out from bb- neath a white cap emblazoned with an anti-roach symbol, he braji- dished two yellow flyswatters and a large cannister of bug spray. Two publicists stood behind him with giant photo blowups of roaches climbing over a cucumber and cheese. "I don't believe this," one was overheard to say, presumably off the record. The Massachusetts Republican said he has a personal reason for wishing to rid the capitol of creepy crawlies. "Ever since I've been here, every time I came into my office at night my desk was moving around the room," he said. "I'd walk in the door at night and my desk was doing the cucaracha." Conte gave an unabashed endorsement for roach'traps manufactured by his constituent, Shulton Inc. "I put them in the corners where it's dark and the next day my desk was stationary, first time in 27 years," he said.
