KAYCHRISTENSEN LISA ANDERSON JANENEHUFF VICKIE WEBB CALENEHUFF PHYLLIS BOWEN G/r/s Staters Named SUZANNE BANKS DENISE ANDERSON LUANN TAYLOR Generation Rap Middle Child Is Scapegoat By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL DEAR HELEN AND SUE: I'm 17. My sister is the spoiled-rotten "baby of the family." My brother, 20, is the super-being. Me? I'm the middle child: scapegoat, liar, worthless brat, My darling sister has Mom twisted around her finger. All she has to do is throw a tanturm (well staged and rehearsed) and she gets whatever she wants, last week it was a ten-speed bike. If I dared ask for even a three-speed, I'd be drawn and quartered. I'm lucky enough to have a part-time job, so I ask for nothing. Big Brother lays around the house, won't look for work. His favorite sports include swearing at everybody, beating me up, guzzling Dad's beer, picking fights, snooping through my room and handing out phony advice. So far he has broken my nose, cracked two of my ribs, blackened my eyes, and given me an infinite amount of cuts and bruises. Mom and Dad ignore these "trivial injuries." I think they're afraid of him. They praise him to the hilt whenever (seldom) he gets off his butt long enough to wash the car or cut the lawn. Helen and Sue, I've lived with this family for 17 years, and I can't take another year. I'll either go elephants or kill myself (which might be better than being beaten to death by Big Brother). Please help. — MIDDLE CHILD DEARM.C.: If you can't leave home physically, how about mentally? We mean — drop out of family fights; don't let injustices get to you, avoid your brother and, above all, don't argue with him! Evidently you can't change conditions at your house, but you can learn to live with them until age 18 sets you free. Then? You sound like college material. If your parents won't or can't finance you, get a student loan, plus a job, make it on your own. . .and let that "middle child ril-show-YOU" complex help you! — HELEN AND SUE RAP: As somebody once wrote about Philadelphia, "to die in our town would be a redundnacy." There's nothing here to do — if you don't roller skate or bowl and don't like expensive, dull movies. Whenever we hang around the street, the cops bust us up. Why don't small towns do something for their teenagers? -TIRED OF TV TIRED: Why don't you do something lor YOURSELVES? Seems to us you're hanging around waiting for amusement hand-outs from adults, when a little ingenuity could solve your own boredom problem. Plan dances at your high school; get involved in more sports (if you don't like basketball, football, etc., there's always tennis, bicycling, swimming, hiking—you name it); or start a game club: cards are always fun, and some of the new games on the market are fascinating. Then another thought: get involved helping others. Be a volunteer for worthwhile projects.—HELEN SPANISH FORK — Nine girls from Spanish Fork and Salem have been chosen to attend Girls State for 1975. This activity is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. To qualify, a girl should be a leader in her school and must be in the upper third of her class, scholastically.

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the Roswell Park Memorial Institute of Buffalo, N.Y., followed 826 breast cancer patients over a 10-year period. Some of the women were given a substance which has no medical effect and others were given a chemotherapeutic agent immediately following mastectomy, or breast removal, the study said. The researchers concluded in their report that the use of chemotherapy can be significant in "enhancing the disease- free state as well as the survival rate of some patients." They found it "particularly distressing" that 76 per cent of patients in which cancer had spread to the lymph nodes around the breast had a recurrence of the disease within 10 years, and that only 24.9 per cent survived. The survival rate was 37.5 per cent for those patients with one to three cancerous nodes and only 13.4 per cent survived if they had four cancerous nodes, the report said. Also disturbing, the report said, was the observation that one of four patients in which cancer had not spread at the time of the mastectomy displayed a recurrence of the disease within 10 years.
