Miss Eva Coo Near
OSSINING, N. Y., June 24. - VP) -
Mrs. Eva Coo, wasted and nerve-
wracked after nine months in Sing
Sing prison's death house, was near
collapse yesterday as she awaited her
execution Thursday night.
The state says Mrs. Coo, a former
Otsego county roadhouse keeper,
must die for the "insurance murder"
last summer of her handyman, Harry
Wright. Only executive clemency
can save her from becoming the fifth
woman electrocuted in New York.
The nine months in the death house
have turned her blond hair to gray.

This is the second of the series of
short articles sponsored by the Mich-
igan State Medical Society in which the
essential facts about cancer are made
Cancer is not a germ disease and
therefore is not "catching." It is not
due to something which comes into
the body from without, as is true of
tuberculosis and typhoid fever. A can-
cer is a part of the body itself. It
develops through the growth of a
single cell or group of cells that orig-
inally belonged to the body.
To understand the nature of can-
cer one must consider growth. All
the organs and tissues of the body
come from a single fertilized egg cell.
As this repeatedly divides, the result-
ing groups of cells become differen-
tiated one from another. Some are
destined to form bones, others skin,
and still others the internal organs.
Normally all this takes place with
due regard to the laws of growth. Mu-
tual relationships between the various
kinds of cell are respected. Most im-
portant of all, there are restraining

influences which check growth when
organs have reached the proper size.
Thus the liver does not continue to
increase in size indefinitely, but
reaches in adult life a period when
further formation of new cells is
just sufficient to replace loss. Then
This is not true of cancer. The
cells of a cancer, although originally
body cells, have* broken away from
all restraining influences. They grow
lawlessly, without purpose, and to the
detriment of the body. They have the
capacity for limitless growth.
Although the figure of speech may
easily be overworked, a cancer is very
much like a criminal group in a na-
tion. It disregards laws and accom-
plishes no useful purpose, meanwhile
gaining its support from the law-
abiding portions of the body, which it
may eventually completely destroy.
Wild growth of body cells is there-
fore the real nature of cancer. De-
struction or removal of the rebellious
cells is the only method of cure. A
future article will tell something of
how these methods are applied.

house, Va., marks the place where
seven Baptist clergymen of colonial
times were reputedly imprisoned for
defying the Church of England in
their manner of worship.
