Cancer Offers 'Real Challenge'
ru ~ -uh ~"u

Suicceeds Mundelein

To Researe
Cancer-hated,' feared, mysterious
and killing-offers a "real challenge
to .the modern research worker," ac-
cording to Dr. William W. Bauer,
chairman of the Bureau of Health
and Instruction for the American
Medical Association.
Dr. Bauer, sponsored by the Wo-
men's Field Army for the Control
of Cancer, appeared here recently
as the first speaker in their cam-
paign to "Cure Cancer with Know-
Wpen questioned about cancer, Dr.
Bauer replied that it Was the sec-
ond leading killer in the United
States. Even though it is second to
heart disease in numerical deaths,
it is more often the cause of death.
Heart disease strikes people who
have reached or passed their aver-
age life expectation--death for them
is inevitable to a large extent where-
as cancer is most dangerous in the
"early thirties" age group.
Steadily Increasing
Although not spectacular in its
growth, cancer has steadily increas-
ed during the past thirty years, Dr.
Bauer pointed out. This increase
is attributed to the fact that people
are living longer (cancer strikes
most heavily in the advanced age
groups) and because of more effi-
cient medical examinations, the di-
sease is being diagnosed more and
more as a cause of death.
Doctors know a great deal about'
cancer, Dr. Bauer said. They know
it is not peculiar to man. It is trans-
missible in .ertain laboratory an-
imals and in the mouse and rat
family, a definite hereditary trend
has been perceived.
Human beings with cancer in their
heritage need not fear the disease,
Dr. Bauer declared, but it is a sen-
sible precaution to have a thorough
examination and not become "neu-
rotic" on the subject. Cancer in the
human is known to begin almost
always because of constant irritation
and at first is localized. Sometimes,
badly fitting dental plates cause can-
cer of the mouth..
Cancer is not one disease accord-
ing to Dr. Bauer, but it has one fun-
damental similarity-it is uncon-
trolled in growth. Cancer cells are
not subject to normal biologic laws
of growth that limit the size of or-
gans. On the contrary, they have
been called "Bolshevist" cells, be-

,Claims Bauer
cause their growth does not stop but
goes on and invades neighboring tis-
Characteristics of cancer take
many forms, Dr. Bauer asserted. Ev-
ery sore that refuses to heal must
be suspected. Every lump that fails
to disappear and has a tendency to
grow is suspicious. In women, if
there is a, single ;painless lump in
one breast, a doctorshould be con-
sulted immediately in order that he
might observe it from the "cold
blooded objective attitude of diag-
Time As Factor
Whenever there is suspicion of
cancer, Dr. Bauer emphasized, "indi-
viduals should wait for nothing be-
cause :time is the most important
element in treating cancer success-
Moles, especially the brown or
black kind, must be suspected. They
are even more likely to be dangerous
if hair is growing. in or through
them. "If you're tired of life, "Dr.
Bauer warned, "start fooling around
with an electric needle in the hands
of a beauty operator in removing a
hairy pigmented mole. You won't
live long because such moles are
known to start the most malignant
type of cancers."

If The U.S. Entered
If America is dragged into the pres-
ent European conflict "the smart
thing would have been to have gone
in the day war is declared," in the
opinion of H. R. Knickerbocker, hori-
zon-chaser of five continents and for--
mer Pulitzer Award winner in foreign
Mr. Knickerbocker, whose last
assignment for the International
News Service was an inspection tour~
of the Maginot Line and other French
fortifications, will deliver the fifth
Oratorical Series lecture Wednesday,!
Jan. 17, in Hill Auditorium.
He believes that without the United'
States the military strength of the
democratic and totalitarian powers
is fairly evenly matched, and con-
cludes that by coming immediately'
to the Allies' aid this country could
bring the war to a swift conclusion
and save the lives and resources of
millions. ;'
Though wholly ' sympathetic to
President Roosevelt's efforts to bring
about peace, Mr. Knickerbocker in-
tends to point out the fultility of inter-
vention in European affairs.

Leading State

tral High School Band of Kalamazoo

assist the University Band in part of
the two-day program of'the Michigan
Band and Orchestra Clinic to be con-

of the Municipal League.
H. A. Olson, director of the League,
and Mark W. Alger, also of the
League, served in the capacity of dis-

which were represented towns and
villages of Hillsdale, Lenawee, Mon-

Iowa Highway
Engineers Hear
R. L. Morrison
Professor Reveals Results
Of Surveys On Savings
In Road Construction
(Special to The Daily)
AMES, Ia., Jan. 10.-Lower cost
highways often entail an added ex-
pense, rather than a- saving to the
motorist, Prof. Roger L. Morrison re-
vealed yesterday before a conference
of highway engineers at Iowa State
Surveys have shown, Professor Mor-
rison revealed, that the expense in-
volved in moving the nation's vehicles
over the highway is approximately
ten times as high as the'cost of the
highways themselves. Thus, he
pointed out, a change in road con-
struction resulting in a saving of one
dollar and involving an added operat-
ing cost of more than one dollar is
economically unsound, since in gen-
eral the same persons pay for both
road and operating costs.
L Another Extreme
Large-scale super-highways, Pro-
fessor Morrison cautioned, present an-
other extreme in false highway eco-
nomics. Grandiose schemes for span-
ning the continent with multi-lane,
separated grade motor trails, when-
analyzed from the economic point of
view, provide insufficient service as
balanced against costs to warrant the
exhorbitant expense Involved in their
Connecting *oads
Economic analyses often reveal the
need for better connecting roads, be-
tween large cities, Professor Mor-
rison indicated, whereas in other in-
stances, existing roads are entirely
adequate. In considering the elim-
ination of distance in road .location,
he again cautioned, two mistakes are
often made. One is to weigh compar-
ative road costs only, with no com-
putation of operating costs, and the
other is to use inflated operating
Fast-moving passenger automobiles
according to accident records quoted
by Professor Morrison, require the
greatest lane width on inter-city
highways. Trends in recent years
have been for a widening of lanes,
first from 9 to 10 feet and in many
cases to 11 or 12.
Germany and Balkan stamp deal-
ers are doing a landslide business.
Hoarders, who fear a repetition of
World War inflation and gold con-
fiscation, are responsible.
