in rustic style with picket fences, hay
stacks and horse stalls.
The guests attended in appropriate

and country ballad numbers. Helen
Barnett, '41, was general chairman
for the 1938 project.

The Army is organized on nati.on-
al, regional, state and local lines. The
state division is headed by a com-
nander who appoints vice-comman-I
ders, majors, captains and lieuten-
ants who are building an organiza-
tion that will eventually put a local
unit in every county and community
in the state.
The Army is non-militaristic, and
membership is a question of individ-
ual interest and desire to participate.
The drive for membership is carried
on in February, March and April.
April has been designated by a spe-
cial act of Congress as "National
Cancer Control Month," and during
this period men and women are in-
vited to enlist in the Field Army.
Dollar Fee Required.
An enlistment fee of one dollar is
required, but many larger contribu-
tions are received. Each state has
a quota of money, one dollar for each
100 persons, which it must raise.
Seventy cents of the, quota is re-
turned to the state, while 30 cents
is retained by the National Society.

Wyoming went over their specified

amount. In such cases, they are giv-

The ideals of the Army may be
summarized by a five-point pro-
gram. First, to teach the lay public
that cancer is curable; second, to
spread knowledge of cancer symp-
toms; third, to emphasize the impor-
tance of a complete annual physical
examination; fourth, to Interest men
and women in all aspects of their
community's cancer problem; and
fifth, to enlist men and women in
the Army during April.
Mrs. Cyrus C. Sturgis, wife of an
Ann Arbor physician, is head of the
local chapter. It is hoped, Mrs. Stur-
gis said, that University students and
townspeople alike will feel sufficient
interest and responsibility on the
subject of the curability of early can-
cer to'join the ranks during the pres-
ent campaign.
