Chronic Irritation Is Termed
Most Important Cancer Cause
This is the sixth of the series of short
articles, sponsored by the Michigan
State Medical Society, in which the
essential facts about cancer are made.
As was stated in the preceding ar-
ticle in this series, chronic irritation
is the most important cause of cancer
from the practical standpoint. Proof
that cancer can be caused in this way
has been available for a long time.
It was recognized for the chimney-
sweep's cancer in. England, and for
the cancer of the skin which develops
in Asiatic shepherds who carry a
basket of smouldering coals beneath
their robes for warmth. These ex-
amples are all the more significant
since the cancers produced in these
particular irritations develop in re-
gions of the body where cancer prac-
tically never occurs otherwise.
The chronic irritation from X-rays
and radium produced cancer in many
of the early students of their action.
Thus the very agents, which in recent
years have proved so useful in the
diagnosis, treatment, and cure of can-
cer, had a cancer-producing effect
upon those who were too long exposed
to them. Also cancer can be pro-
duced in laboratory animals by a
number of methods, all making use of
the principle of chronic irritation.
Men have been known to produce
cancer in their own mouths just as
truly as scientists have produced can-
cer in animals.
The habitual pres-I
ence of a mechanical irritant in the
mouth, such as tobacco, a pipe-stem,
or other foreign material, may have
this effect: Poorly fitting dental work,
jagged teeth, or chronic infection may
accomplish the same result. Work-
men exposed to irritative oils may
develop cancer of the skin. Tar,
pitch, petroleum products, arsenic,
and a long list of chemicals are known
to be responsible for the production
of cancer of the skin. Sores that are
slow to heel, such as may develop
on the scars of burns, are possible
causes of cancer.
Some of these cancer hazards may
be avoided. Others can be detected
and corrected by the family physi-

Unconfirmed Chinese reports said to-
night that between 2,600 and 3,000
persons had perished in the town of
Yenshih Hsien in western Honan
province, 20 miles east of Honanfu,
when the Lo river rose 20 feet.
Although this report was not con-
firmed immediately, from other
sources Chinese advices said that the

FAYETTE, N. D., July 11. - (P) -
Modern wooden homes and the Fed-
eral Housing act have no appeal for
two pioneer North Dakota families
who still live in "gumbo" homes, two
of the few remaining in the country.
Mr. and Mrs. Valentine Hutch-
macher came here 30 years ago to
homestead, and constructed a gumbo
home in which they still live. Frank,
the eldest son, was married in the
Hutchmacher home and filing on a
piece of land, built himself a similar
Hutchmacher and his son, Frank,
were approached with the idea of
building new homes under the Fed-
eral Housing act.
"No, we won't move," said the elder
Hutchmacher. "My 16 children were
born in this gumbo house, three of
them were married in this home, and
I expect that someone in my family
will always keep this house in repair
after I'm gone."
In Japanese Quake
TOKIO, July 11. - (P) - Twenty-
four persons were killed and 58 in-
jured today by a severe earthquake
in the rich Shizuoka district of Japan,
from which America anually buys
millions of dollars of tea and oranges.
A police survey showed that the
casualties and the more serious dam-
age were confined to Shizouka city,
100 miles southwest of here with a
population of 136,000, and Shimizu,
with a population of-56,000.
A total of 47 buildings were re-
ported destroyed with many score
more seriously damaged.
Fires broke out but were subdued
before they spread seriously.
Electric power plants were put out
of commission and the cities were in
darkness at 8 p. m., but authorities
said they hoped to restore the ser-
vice during the night.
The earthquake was felt here.
Hamamatsu reported experiencing a
heavy shock, but only slight damage.
Fragmentary reports said many
houses collapsed at Shizuoka City, on
the south central coast of the main
island, and fires started.
The formerly prosperous toy in-
dustry of Germany has suffered a
severe decline in recent years.
