Great Versatility Makes
Michigan Star Strong
Threat For Record
Word from California that Willis
Ward, Michigan's all-around track
star, has entered the National A.A.U.
decathlon event follows his announce-
ment three weeks ago that for the
next year he will concentrate in that
event with an eye to gaining a place
on the 1936 American Olympic team.
By all odds the most versatile track
athlete in Michigan's history, eclips-
ing the brilliant records of another
Wolverine, Carl Johnson, who was the
first man to win four events in a Big
Ten track meet, Ward was also an
outstanding football star. It was his
football competition, many sport fol-
lowers believe, that prevented him
from becoming the greatest'track ath-
lete in the history of the sport.
Supremely blessed physically and
temperamentally, Ward was heralded
as a sensation when he entered school
here, but injuries handicapped him
after he took 18 points in the Big
Ten in his sophomore year.
It has often been the claim of track
observers -that Ward could have been
practically a world's record breaker
in any event in which he concentrated.
As a freshman Ward all but set a
world's standard in the high jump,
and his speed made him a consistent
threat in every running race in which
he competed. In 1933, in the Confer-
ence meet, Ward pressed Jack Keller,
of Ohio State, to one of the fastest
hurdle races ever run.
Aside from his speed, however,
Ward p o s s e s s e s extraordinary

The Careers And Personalities
Of Our Senators: J. F. Guffey

2. JOSEPH GUFFEY
PITTSBURGH, June 26 - P) -
"Jovial Joe" Guffey, Pennsylvania's
first democratic U. S. senator in 58
years, is a bachelor, but proud of his
matrimonial record: Usher 'or best
man at 31 weddings.
"My proudest one was the time I
ushered for Senator David A. Reed,"
he confesses. Guffey defeated Reed
for the senatorship on November 6.
Both live in the same precinct, same
Pittsburgh ward.
Joseph F. Guffey - "F" stands for
no name, but was inserted to fill out
the signature - is 59, short and
heavy set, has graying hair. Born at
Scotch ancestors and a long line of
democrats.
"I grew up in politics," he says.
"There was a time there were 31
Guffeys of voting age. They were all
Democrats and all voted in the same
precinct." His father was sheriff of
Westmoreland county. when "Jovial
Joe" was born.
Politics is both a hobby and a pro-
fession. He also likes to read, hunt
ducks and ride horseback. At Prince-
ton he captained the freshman base-
ball team.
Two maiden sisters share his home,
where biographies and histories fill
the library and a picture of President
Roosevelt hangs ove~r the living room
fireplace. Guffey's Pennsylvania hold-
ings center in the coal and oil lands
in the western part of the state.

Beliefs That Cancer Is Either
Contarious Or Infectious False

This is the fourth of the series of
shortsarticles, sponsored by the Mich-
igan State Medical Society, in which the
essential facts of cancer are made clear.
There are a number of common
misunderstandings about cancer
which have contributed largely to
human unhappiness in connection
with this disease. Cancer is neither
contagious nor infectious. In all the
world's history there is, no authen-
tical example of a physician, nurse or
other attendant acquiring cancer
from a patient. In experimental can-
cer in animals it is found that even
when the young suckle a cancerous
mother they do not catch the disease.
One need have no fear of acquiring
cancer by either direct or indirect

ous because, of this belief. In some
countries they were excluded from
general hospitals and forced to shift
for themselves.
From time to time claims are made
that the "germ" of cancer has been
discovered. None of these claims have
survived critical study and the best
opinion is that there is no possibility
that cancer is caused by a germ. A
cancer is an actual part of the indi-
vidual, lawlessly growing within his
body.
Also, cancer is not a "blood-poison-
ing" and has nothing to do with "bad
blood." Neither has it anything dis-
graceful about it. Many people have
the strange notion that cancer is
