CHICAGO (AP) Breast-cancer patients who take estrogen do not appear to increase their risk of additional tumors, say doctors who reviewed studies on the subject. . Most women diagnosed with breast cancer get chemotherapy, which hastens menopause. But doctors commonly withhold estrogen, which could ease the discomfort of menopause, for fear the hormone could reactivate the cancer. However, a review of studies on the subject found no evidence that estrogen promotes additional breast tumors, and any possible risk may be outweighed by estrogen's benefits, said Dr. Melody 14-year-old convicted of murderinq preschooler BATH, N.Y. (AP) A 14-year-old boy who bludgeoned and strangled a preschooler while suffering from what his lawyer claimed was a disorder that made him prone to uncontrollable rage was convicted Tuesday of murder. In convicting Eric Smith, the jury rejected the rage-disorder claim along with charges of manslaughter. Eric could get as much nine years to life in prison. JACKAL: Unfazed by court Continued from A1 stairs at the justice center in the heart of Paris to his two-hour meeting with Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere. Chains stood out against his white pants, beige sweater and brown slip-on shoes. Seated on a hallway bench awaiting the judge, Carlos bantered with his guards about guns. Then the doors of Bruguiere's chambers opened. "Ah, here's the judge, how's it going?" Carlos, a native of Venezuela, said in French. "And you?" Bruguiere replied. "Still alive, for a long time to come," answered Carlos, whose death had been rumored numerous times. Then, to his escorts, he added, "This guy, he's a star." Bruguiere charged Carlos with "complicity in voluntary homicide and injuries and destruction by explosives leading to death and permanent injuries." A panel of judges is expected to charge him later with the fatal shooting of two counterintelligence agents in 1975. A French court convicted Carlos in absentia in 1992 and sentenced him to life in prison for those slayings, but under French law he will have to be retried. Carlos' two attorneys are Oussedik and Jacques Verges, who has made a career of defending notori For insurance call Susan Vermette Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.

Estrogen reduces the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis, which makes bones brittle. Cobleigh led the review for the-Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, 4,000 doctors who do can-" cer research. The report was published in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Associa- ', tion. , Giving breast-cancer patients chemotherapy and then withholding hormone replacement may be a matter of "trading short-term improvements in survival for long-term losses in survival," Cobleigh said. Besides that, "we have a lot of miserable patients walking around." He was tried as an adult. The freckle-faced redhead said that he saw 4-year-old Derrick Ro-bie walking along the sidewalk to a day camp they attended and coaxed him into the woods on the pretext of taking a shortcut. Eric said he squeezed the boy's neck, stuffed a paper towel and a, plastic lunch bag in his mouth, battered his head with a stone, then crushed his skull with a 26-pound rock he had pulled out of the soil. ous clients, including Gestapo chief Klaus Barbie and Magdalena Kopp, a West German terrorist who reportedly married Carlos after a term in French prison. The 1982 bombing with which Carlos was charged Tuesday was less bloody than other crimes in which he is a main suspect, including the 1975 attack on OPEC . headquarters and the 1976 hijacking of an Air France plane to Entebbe, Uganda. ' But the charge carried the symbolic weight of the hand of justice coming down on a man who eluded Western intelligence networks for two decades. Interior Minister Charles Pas-qua said Monday that Carlos was responsible for at least 15 deaths in France and 83 worldwide. Oussedik told the AP by telephone that his client's arrest was a "mafioso deal" between France and Sudan. "He was overpowered, bound, drugged. They gave him a shot ... put a mask on him and he was put on a French plane" with French counterintelligence agents, Oussedik said. Oussedik said he will sue the French government for kidnapping on Wednesday if his client agrees. STATI f ARM See me at: 1065 W. Eldorado 422-3719 INSURANCI 1 - .''.
