BACK IN TIME
JAN. 16, 1937
Red-haired Patty Berg of Minneapolis, the veteran Helen Hicks of Woodmere, Long Island, and carefree Jane Cothran of Greenville, S.C., yesterday conquered the combined hazards offered by the weather and the Augusta Country Club's rugged Hill course to score one-over-par 80s and take the lead at the end of the first 18 holes of the 54-hole medal play Titleholders' Invitational Golf Tournament.
The trio flirted with par from the start, recovering rapidly from potential danger spots.
Dorothy Kirby of Atlanta, the three-time Georgia state titleholder, finished the initial round with an 83 to place second, three strokes out.

Police offer these tips on protecting yourself from financial fraud:
Elderly patients diagnosed with midstage colon cancer benefit as much from chemotherapy after surgery as do young patients with the disease, according to a review of more than 3,000 patient records in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Patients age 70 and older who were judged fit enough to undergo chemotherapy had the resiliency to withstand the side effects.
The study showed that chemotherapy reduced the risk of death after surgery for colon cancer by 24 percent.
Colon cancer ranks second to lung cancer in the number of deaths it causes each year. Most colon cancer patients are older than 70.
