Abduction attempt fails
The attempted abduction of a Univer-
sity student early Tuesday morning
was foiled when the kidnapper was
distracted by a passing car and people
exiting a nearby grocery, police said
yesterday.
The victim a 19-year-old woman, was
waiting at a bius stop in the 200 block of
Washtenaw Place when a male suspect
in his early 20s approached her, grab-
bed her around the neck, and started
dragging her toward the Ann Street in-
tersection. Police said the woman
began fighting, struggling, and
screaming.
The woman broke free when the kid-
napper was distracted by the car and
the food shdppers. Police said the man.
fled down Washtenaw Place to Hospital
Drive; and then disappeared. The vic-
tim was not injured.
Second Chance
Two 18-year-old men, apparently
angered at being denied entrance to a
campus bar, early yesterday morning
attacked the doorman with a jack han-
die, police said yesterday.
The incident occurred at the Second
Chance, 516 E Liberty Street, at 12:20
a.m. Police said. the two men were
refused entrance to the establishment
because they were intoxicated and had
no identification. They began arguing
with the doorman, who ejected them
from the-premises.
The men came back a few moments
later, started a fight, and were again
ejected from the bar. Police said the
two came back a third time with a jack
handle, which one of them began
swinging at the doorman. Police were
summoned, and both men were
arrested, one for felonious assault. The
other had several outstanding warran-
ts.
The doorman was not hurt, police
said. The two men were later released,
pending a further investigation.
Pedestrian hit on campus
A 58-year-old Ann Arbor resident was
injured when he was hit by a car Wed-
nesday near the Michigan Union, police
said yesterday.
The incident occurred at 12:44 p.m.
David Northmore, 31, of 43502 Ap-
plewood, Canton, Mich., was south-
bound on State Street and had just
passed the Madison Street intersection
when he struck Charles Farker of 1300
W. Madison Street. Police said Farker
stepped out in front of the car.
Northmore said he did not see Farker
step out, and Farker said he did not see
the car. Police said Farker has bad
eyesight.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Health and
Human Services Secretary Richard
Schweicker warned yesterday that the
Reagan administration may cap health
costs if it current efforts fail to spur
competition and hold down medical
bills.
"This administration won't tolerate
19 percent increases in hospital costs ...
it just blows our Federal budget out of the
water," said Schweiker, whose depar-
tment is spending $66 billion this year
on Medicare and Medicaid. .
HOSPITAL costs rose an estimated
18.5 percent in 1981, about double the
general inflation rate, according to a
Scheiker aide.
Schweiker said he had no "finite or
specific" details yet for a cap, saying it
wold be "a last resort."
But he noted that with Medicare and
Medicaid accounting for 8 percent of
the federal health expenditures - and
25 percent of all money spent on the
health in the United States - those
programs would be likely targets.

"IF WE FAIL to get some
mechanisms in the market to control
costa; we might be forced to put some
lids on things," he said.
Several years ago, hospital groups;
the American Medical Association,
Blue Cross and Blue Shield and other.
industry groups began a "Voluntary
Effort" to hold down costs and convince
Congress regulation was unnecessary. .
In an interview, Schweicker said the
administration's health care com-
petition package is under review and
"will be announced in the next month or
two."
PREVIOUS options under con-
sideration included tax incentives and
penalties to encourage employers to of-
fer a choice of health plans and to make
the public pay part of the hospital bills.
Medicare patients may face higher
deductibles and be asked to pay 1 per-
cent of each day's hospital bill, up to a
maximum of $250 a year.

(Continued from Page 1)
The new technique, human tumor
cloning assay, has demonstrated that in
60 to 70 percent of the patient cases,the
therapy was successful.
"Lung cancer is an important
problem because it is the number one
cause 'of cancer death in men, and the
number two cause of cancer death in
women," Natale said, adding that by
1985 lung cancer will surpass breast
cancer as the number one cause of can-
cer death in women.
The number of lung cancer cases
may not decrease for another 10 years,
according to Natale, although the rate

of cigarette smokers is not increasing.
It usually takes up to 10 years for lung
cancer to develop, so the new cases are
patients who began smoking 10 years
ago.
In the 1982 edition of its annual
publication, "Cancer Facts and
Figures," the Cancer Society estimated
that of 430,000 cancer deaths this year,
111,000 will be due to cancer of the lung.
The Society also reported that mAre
than a quarter of a million Americans
who get.cancer in 1982 will survive the
diseasi for five years or more.

"If it weren't for lung cancer, the
overall cancer death rate would ac-
tually be going down," said Lawrence
Garfinkel, the Society's director of can-
cer . prevention. "The rapidly rising
lung cancer death rate has obscured a*
redIuction in death rates for all other
kinds of cancer combined.'
"The irony of this situation is that
lung cancer is the most preventable of
all diseases," Garfinkel said. "The best
way to avoid getting it is to give up
cigarettes."

Milliken 's hotline sizzles with complaints

LANSING (UP) -- Gov. William
Milliken's statewide hotline has been
sizzling, with citizen complaints about
welfare chislers, high-paid politicians'
and other issues of the day.
Since it was first pjugged in .last
Thursday, the toll-free number has
logged 336 calls, including one from a
tan who wants to sell water to the par-
"ched SunBelt .and another from a
woman who wants First Lady Helen
Milliken to run for the U.S. Senate.
MANY OF THE calls logged so far
seem more in the nature of gripes or
general expressions of opinion than the
kind of specific sugestions for im-
'proving government which Milliken has
been soliciting.
A spokesman for. the governor,
however, said it is too early to judge the
'Pond' sh
(Continued from Page 5)
designed in such a way as to not
diminish what's occurring on screen.
If this design seems like addition by
use of subtraction, keep in mind that
very few directors are equipped with
the discipline to do such. Rydell is par-
ticularly adept at placing the full em-
phasis on the material and actors and
achieves a richly textured intimacy by
doing such; he provides the film a neo-
theatrical flavor that is suitably com-
patible with both the material and the
performers.
One minor flaw is the casting of Jane
Fonda as the daughter. It's not so much
her performance but her presence that
seriously undermines the authenticity
of the film. To her credit, she realizes
the inherent limitations of the role

program.
"It's a little early to comment in
general," said Al Sandner. "Let's give
the thing.a little time to vprk."
HE ALSO said it was too early to
evaluate whether any of the
suggestions received will be implemen-
ted.
"What sounds like a good idea today,
might not be much tomorrow, or vice
versa," he said.
Welfare, taxation and government
spending, particularly recent pay
raises for the governor and Legislature,"
were the dominant subjects of the early
messages received on the line.
A "CIT'ZENS' undercover system to
police welfare fraud" was proposed by
two callers, one from Flint and another
from Coleman.

A Dearborn Heights woman com-
plained that food stamp 'recipients
"Buy things no one else can afford,
such as "pop, steaks,etc."'
One man called in to report specific
instances of fraud, apparently in-
volving his own relative.
THERE WERE numerous complain-
ts about pay raises for lawmakers and
the governor.
A Redford Township man said
legislators should be docked when they
are late for session, and another man
z said they should be paid on a piece work
basis.
A Flushing man said the governor's
"slush fund" should be taken away and
"used elsewhere in the state of retar-
ded or handicapped children."

owcase for
(which is very sketchy) and adjusts ac-
cordingly. Jane Fonda is a very resour-
ceful actress and makes the best of
what's available. Her scenes with Hep-
burn possess a keenly natural quality,
ironically not in evidence in those,
scenes with her father.
Here the difficulty has more to do
with her very distinct off-screen per-
sonality than it does with her ability.
The result in these pivotal scenes is that
her own personality supercedes that of
her character, thrusting a curiously
backstage aura onto the proceedings.
However, most will enjoy these scenes,
despite the momentary departure from
the context of the script.
On Golden Pond is a carefully
developed and lovingly realized piece of
work. In view of the recent glut of trash

Fonda
the industry has passed off as holiday
entertainment it is a welcome change.
Rydell has done an exemplary job at
assimilating the available talent. The
result is quite striking.
This is a simple film and its sim-
plicity is part of its charm. No pretense
at universality undercuts the structure
of the work, though it has much to say
about love, aging, family, parenthood,
and death. If such concerns hint at sen-
timentality,. this is offset by its
development within the confines of the
story.
The acting in this film is of such a
rare quality that this alone is worth the
price of admission. Finally, there is
Henry Fonda climaxing a distinguished'
career with the role of a lifetime. Don't
miss it.
