The commission met yesterday be-

Wax Models, Posters And
Photographs On Display
In Medical School
An exhibit which vividly illustrates
the effects and the treatment of
cancer, the second most fatal disease
in the United States, in such a
manner as to be understood by the
( layman as well as the student of med-
icine, is now on display on the sec-
ond floor of the West Medical Build-
ing. The exhibit is sponsored by the
American Society for the Control
of Cancer.1
It includes a number of life-like
wax models showing the effect of
cancer on the various parts of the
body, while accompanying models
show the results of correct treat-
ment. Case histories are presented
with a number of the models. Graphs
show the age at which cancer is most
dangerous, and also reveal that 120
deaths per 100,000 population are
caused every year by cancer.
Posters List Symptoms
Another of the posters placed on
exhibit lists the five most common
and most easily recognizable symp-
toms of cancer. They are any per-
sistent lump or thickening below the
skin, any irregular bleeding or dis-
charge from any of the body open-
ings, any sore that does not heal
-particularly about the tongue,
mouth or lips, persistent indigestion,
and sudden changes in the growth
of a wart, mole or wen.
The larger part of the wax models
in the exhibit is devoted to a study
of cancer of the breast, the point
at which women are most commonly
afflicted, as is revealed by a large
chart compiled by the Society.
Early Treatment Stressed
g A -collection of photogiraphs is
shown with the models which illus-
trate cases which were correctly treat-
ed, and others which were neglected
until it was too late for treatment.
Such cases as the latter, a bulletin
of the Society points out, are incur-
able, but cases which are caught in
the early stages are definitely cur-
able, while great advances in the de-
velopment of the treatment now make

possible in some intermediate cases
a complete and permanent cure.
The Society bulletins posted at the
exhibit, and the numerous case his-
tories all point out the importance
of having cancer treated as soon as
the slightest symptoms are found.
The case histories also reveal that the
most common treatment used today is
the use of radium and excision, and,
although the first treatment does not
always have permanent results, it is
possible over a series of years to com-
pletely remove the cancer and the
tumor which may accompany it.
The purpose of the display, as out-
lined in the posters of the Society,
is the education of the public in the
control of cancer, and the further-
ance of studies which will cut down
greatly the death rate resulting from
cancer to that it may no longer take
its annual toll among persons of
both sexes and all ages.
