Page Two HOSPITAL PATIENT AGAIN I E. D. Payne, Mason County Christmas tree firm proprietor, was roe-admitted to Shelton hos- pital Monday for medical atten- tion. In this mechanical age every citizen knows the danger of driv- 'ing an automobile with worn—out lbrake-bands, a knock in the mo- tor, or a leak in the fuel lines. The danger signals that a car gives are recognized promptly and an expert mechanic is consulted at once. It is unfortunate, but true, that the danger signals which may indicate the presence of cancer are far less well-known. Initials Aft-er Name A. B. after a man’s name means Bachelor of Arts and a. b. indicates able-bodied seaman. sore or tumor of the human body may be ignored for months. It is an established fact that many types of early cancers are curable in a substantial percent- age of cases if treated by quali- fied experts, yet too few people in the average American Com— munity are aware of the fact that this disease can be cured and are even less informed concerning the responsibility of the indivi- dual in the fight to control it. As citizens we know much about the machines that carry us around Ion four wheels; we know too lit- tle about the more delicate and more important actions of our own bodies that move on two legs. In 1937, according to the Na- tional Safety Council, more than 39,000 persons were killed in mo- tor car accidents. Last year, the Council estimates that the death [rate was slightly more than 32,- ‘000. In other words, 7000 peo- Iple were spared from death and disaster through education, law enforcement and common sense. IA reduction of almost 18% in deaths due to motor vehicle acci- dents within two years is a worthy achievement. Every person is familiar with the value of educa- tion to the public and its rela- Itionship to this reduction in traf— fic accidents. Mortality from cancer last year was nearly five times that from automobile accidents.

The unreasonable fear and dread of cancer that exists in the minds of some people dates back to the era of the far advanced, hopeless, and incurable cases of cancer so familiar to every com- munity twenty years ago.

SERIES STARTS NOW Army of the American Society for the Control of Cancer, and with recognized cancer clinics being organized by qualified and train- ed experts, the clouds of fear are being scattered. Thousands of people have been cured of cancer and many of their histories are now on file with the American College of Surgeons. Progress is being made. As an individual you can help speed I one of our busy highways with- gout first becoming familiar with Itraffic regulations. In the same ‘manner we should inform our— selves on the regulations for liv- ing and for maintaining health. ICommunities protect themselves Iby setting up driving tests which must be passed before a license to operate a car is secured. In- dividuals may protect themselves by learning enough to pass a cancer control information test. Laws of public health are just 'as important as traffic regula- tions. The majority ,of people realize that sanitary regulations, Ithe inspection of foods, milk sup- ply, etc., are all vital to our Welfare. We know that without these rules disease would increase and epidemics would again ravage our communities. Vaccination, quarantine, and physical exami- nations are matters familiar to most of us. It should be pointed out that the public has played a major role in [popularizing rules of public health. This same splendid cooperation of physicians and the public, together with our system of American Medicine, brought this country health record and the lowest death Irate in its history for. the year '1939. Conta ious diseases have been controlled, but cancer re- mains today a challenge to the in- telligence of the individual. Cancer is apparently as old as man. Records of it are found in i Egyptian history of 1500 B. C.I and in the medical literature of India of 2000' B. C. Successful medical efforts to control this disease, however, are not more than fifty years old. It is now known that cancer is a wild growth of body cells thought to be caused by chronic irritation. This ancient enemy of health, described accurately as the great- est of all the natural hazards in the adventure of living, is now I b e i n g fought by modern ltechniques on three major fronts: research, treatment, and educa- tion. Great progress has been made in research in studies of can- cerous tissues and the relation of I I ‘ fession. 'Quack remedies flourish< sex hormones to cancer.

The ,disease is not contagious and Iis not due to a germ. Cancer cannot be transmitted by dishes or clothing and is not transmit- ted through the blood. It has not been proved to be inherited in In treatment, Isurgical procedures have been perfected and developed to in- clude types of cancer which have been incurable in the past. The use of radium has been stand- ardized and experiments are also being conducted with million volt x-rays. The outlook for the control of cancer is improving each year. However, it is true that unless cancer is found in its early stages the prospects of cure are not good. The function of cancer education is to teach men and Women the vital importance of early diag- rnosis and prompt treatment. The {work of the laboratory and the physician is fundamental to can- cer control,.but outstanding medi. cal and research .men agree that the most important thing at the. present time is to educate the general public. We must replace fear with courage, and where there has been ignorance or in- difference, we must instill life- saving knowledge. National health is an essential part of national defense. This is .not the time to slacken efforts to maintain the health of our citi- zens. .. Cancer is. a disease that usually affects thdse over forty years of age. With the draft of young men, the health of older workers in industry and on farms takes on greater significance. It -is vitally im'ortant, therefore, that the healt and the Well-be- ing of the mothers and fathers of our youth be preserved. Just as knoWledge and commu- nity action have reduced the haz- ards of our existence in many other‘s‘ituations, so knowledge will reduce the hazards of cancer, which today is unneccessarily the second major cause of death. Just what should the individual learn about cancer for his or her own protection? What should be Iknown to pass a cancer cbntrol information test? In short —— what should you do about can- Icer? I To answer these questions and to see that sound facts reach the greatest possible number ofpeo- 'ple is the goal of the Women's IField Army of the American So- Iciety for the Central of Cancer. , The indiVidual must memorize I I tell them to his friends: 1.

SHELTON-M_A§ New Tax Tokens To Be Green and Made From Fibre Changing its original plans both for color and material, the state last week placed an order for ten million tax tokens to be manu- factured by a Seattle concern at a cost of $1.80 per thousand, ac— cording to press dispatches from Olympia.

Fiber was selected because the government has priority rights over plastics, now in great de- mand for use in connection with idefense activities. Public de- mand for the change to green color was heeded. Fch million of the new tokens will be delivered by April 25, the remainder of the order later. Fifteen tons of fiber will be used in manufacturing the entire order of tokens, which will be slightly smaller than the present metal disc. The tax commission said $110,- 000 had been spent on metal and paper tokens, used in collecting the present two per cent tax. They probably will be called in, in the near future, and junked, regardless of whether the voters approve a graduated net income tax, in which case the three per cent tax will be automatically scaled down to the present rate. For Insane Care I Olympia, April 3. — Counties Ihave been requested to withhold Ipayments to the state on its ,claim for costs of maintaining in- digent non-violent insane cases in state institutions, Lew Selvidge, executive secretary of the County Commissioners Association, said today. The request was made by the executive committee of the asso- ciation until the legal liability of counties can be “completely ex- plored.” Care of these cases has been a source of controversy for several years, betWeen the state and the counties. The recent legislature passsed measures relieving counties of such costs for the per- iod between January 1, 1938, and April 1, 1941, but the measure was vetoed. Another bill, relieving the coun- ties of such expenses in the fu- ture was approved by the govern- or. Selvidge Suggested the execu- tive committee's request may place a “cloud” upon the state’s claim’imt‘il the 1943 legislature. About $2,000,000 is involved in the vetoed measure.

Hill for the filing of a supplemental .vcom- plaint and jury trial in his suit against Boyd Blair for recovery of allqged unpaid back rent was granted by Judge D. F. Wright in superior court Saturday. The complaint claimed that Blair had failed to pay $112.50 in rent due on property in the es- tate of the late Dora Wells Trout- man at Lilliwaup.

Any sore that does not heal, particularly about the tongue. mouth or lips. 4. Persistent indigestion, espec- ially when accompanied by dis- taste for meat. 5. Sudden changes in the form or rate of growth of a mole or wart. If suchsymptoms are present a physician should be consulted. The individual must remember that it is important to avoid all forms of chronic irritation and chronic inflammation and that the best protection against can- cer is a cOmplete check-up or physical examination by a qualified physician once a year- The individual must remember that the only acceptable methods of treating cancer today are by surgery, or by x-rays and radium in the hands of qualified experts. The individual must realize that it is a personal responsibility to take part in cancer education. Such agencies as the Women’s Field Army of the American So- ciety for the Control of Cancer and cancer clinics of local hos- pitals deserve your support. Finally, the individual must ob- vtain authentic information about cancer by securing pamphlets from and attending meetings of the state DivisiOn of the Field Army. If these health rules are follow- I ed, we as intelligent Americans shall have even greater success in controlling cancer than We have had in reducing other haz- :ards such as contagious diseases and automobile accidents.

S. Forest Service. “The mild open winter of 1939- 40, followed by favorable spring and fall seasons, has been re- sponsible for better range con- ditions and better breeding sea- sons for practically all kinds of game, says L. H. Douglas, assist- ,ant regional forester in charge of wildlife and range management. An unusual occurrence was the appearance of a lone bull elk on the Chelan forest, Which was 75 to 100 miles from any known Irange population by these animals. . Elk are reported to be crossing the Canadian boundary from Cali- ada along the main Pasayten Riv- er. The principal herds of Rocky Mountain elk are found on the east side of the Snoqualmie forest, the Wenatchee forest, and the Umatilla forest in southeastern Washington. The rounded estimate figures for the national forest lands in Wash- ington showed 49,000 mule deer; 14,000 blacktailcd deer; 1,800 whitetailed deer; 9,000 Rocky Mountain elk; 3,500 Roosevelt elk; I 5,400 mountain goats; tain sheep; and 8,000 black bears. The Chelan forest shows the larg- est population of mule deer — 20,- 000 and the Columbia forest the largest blacktailed deer popula- tion, 4,000. Blue grouse were reported to have shown a very substantial in- crease over 1939. Bakers Clip Mac’s Commercial Lead To But 2 Games COMMERCIAL BOWLING W. L. Pct.
