WASHINGTON (AP)-Survival rates
for people with the most common forms
of cancer, such as those involvingthe
prostrate gland and breast, improved

The report, compiled by the National
Cancer Institute, said survival
statistics can be considered a useful
measure of the success of cancer
Dr. Max Myers, who with Dr. Ben-
jamin Hankey prepared the report, said
survival rates "can indicate whether
there has been overall improvement in
the detection, diagnosis and treatment,
of cancer patients."
AS NOTED IN part of the report
disclosed last week, the improved sur-
vival rates are not uniform according to
race. While survival for blacks is im-

white survival in most cases.
Black men have significantly lower
survival rates than whites for eight of
14 types of cancers surveyed, the report
said. These include cancers of the lung,
rectum, colon, larynx, prostate, blad-
der, and Hodgkin's Disease.
Black women have much lower sur-

KATMANDU, Nepal (UPI) - A
Japanese adventurer who crossed the
North Pole in a dog sled and rafted
down the Amazon River is trying to
conquer the frozen summit of 29, 028-
foot Mount Everest.
Naomi Uemura, 39, and five fellow;
citizens are the first Japanese to try to
scale the icy reaches of the world's
highest mountain in wintertime.
"Winds will be as high as 93 mph and
temperatures, above 24,000 feet, will be
as low as 44 degrees below zero
Fahrenheit," the 39-year-old Vermura
The climbers plan to scale the forbid-
ding Everest via the Southeast Ridge, a.
normal route for mountaineers.
Uemura said they plan to reach base
camp by the end of November and
would make the first summit bid during
the first 10 days of January. If that fails,
they will descend to base camp and try
again at the end of the same month.

Four Ann Arbor teenagers
killed in crash near Alpena
Four Ann Arbor teenagers, on a weekend camping trip, were killed
when their car crashed head-on into another vehicle on U.S. 23 near Alpena.
The four victims were students at Community High School.
They were identified by State Police as James Millar, 19; Sloane
Staples, 19; Willie Randall, 18; and Michelle Miller, 17.
Millar apparently was driving the compact car in which his friends were
riding when it collided head-on with another vehicle. Both cars were
y engulfed in flames upon impact and the four victims were burned beyond
recognition, police said.
The driver of the second car, Tim Cousineau, 39, of Bay City, was taken
to Alpena General Hospital. He was listed in fair condition.
Investigators said it was not immediately known which car crossed the
Tish seeks new vote
Robert Tisch, the author of the Tisch tax cut amendment that was
defeated in Tuesday's election, said yesterday he will ask the courts for a
new vote on the controversial measure-Proposal D.
Tisch claims the state officials' alleged use of taxpayer money in
fighting Proposal D amounts to fraud.
Proposal D would lave cut local property taxes by more than 50 percent
and forced the state to make up lost local revenues-about $2 billion. It was
defeated by more than 400,000 votes.
Inflation outpaces incomes;
Michigan drop sharpest
WASHINGTON-Inflation more than doubled personal income gains
for April through June, according to government figures released yesterday.
Michigan residents' incomes fell the most, at a full 1 percent, while total per-
sonal income nationwide rose 1.1 percent.
Inflation rose 2.6 percent in the same three months.
Personal income in the Southwest rose 2.5 percent-the largest increase
in the nation. Five states-Michigan, Kentucky, Idaho, Oregon, and
Alaska-recorded actual declines in personal incomes. Personal income in
Oklahoma was up 3 percent.
Payroll declines in the five hardest hit states were attributed to produc-
tion cuts in the car industry, and in iron, steel, lumber, textiles, paper, and
Chicago tops Los Angeles
in latest census figures
CHICAGO-The latest census figures show that Chicago has resumed
its place as the nation's "second city." But Los Angeles may catch up yet.
Initial figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau during the summer
showed Los Angeles with a narrow lead over Chicago. But the newest set of
figures-still termed "preliminary"-gave Chicago the edge.
Census figures delivered last week to the offices of Chicago Mayor Jane
Byrne and the area's congressional representatives show Chicago had an
April 1 population of 2,969,570. It was the first -time in 60 years Chicago's
population has dropped below 3 million.
Los Angeles had 2,950,010 residents, according to census data-a gain of
about 140,000 since 1970. New York is still the largest U.S. city with a
population of about 6.8million.
Voyager finds new moon
PASADENA, Calif.-Voyager 1 found a new modn of Saturn, the 15th
now known, before a rain storm in Spain wiped out five hours of pictures and
science data from the spacecraft, scientists said yesterday.
The new moon, only about 50 miles in diameter, was sighted by Voyager
cameras just outside Saturn's A-Ring. It was the third moon of the ringed
planet discovered by Voyager 1 in the past few days.
The satellite antenna in Madrid is one of three that form a worldwide
receiving network for Voyager 1. Exceptionally heavy rain cut that anten-
na's.service to Voyager, interrupting transmission of the data. Voyager 1 is
about 1 billion miles from Earth.
Iraq claims boat seizure
Iran and Iraq both reported intensified fighting yesterday in the battle
for Iranian stronghold Abadan. Iraq said it captured 41 Iranian patrol boats,
sunk two Iranian gunboats, and captured a naval base near Abadan.
Iran said its U.S.-built Phantom warplanes struck at an Iraqi oil refinery
about 140 miles north of Baghdad. Meanwhile, Baghdad radio broadcast an
Iraqi war communique saying its forces killed 27 Iranians in fighting at
Abadan. Much of the 48-day war's fighting has focused on Abadan because it
is the site of one of the world's largest oil refineries.
Bahama to rescue Hiatians
MIAMI-The Bahamian government has agreed to rescue 102 Haitians
stranded on a tiny island-more than a month after the U.S. Coast Guard fir-
st reported the Hiatians's plight, coast guard officials said yesterday. Five
refugees reportedly starved to death.
The rescue vessel is scheduled to arrive tomorrow at Cayo Lobos-Key
of the Wolves-an island about 25 miles off the coast of Cuba. It is within the
jurisdiction of the Bahamas.
