PAGE EldHT MIAMI DAILY NEVVS*RBCORD — MIAMI/ OKLA, SUNDAY; MAY 6, GUARD IhouL you. LOVE YOUR HELP IS NEEDED NOW Give GENEROUSLY THE LIGHT OF HOPE- But Cancer can be conquered! Scientific research virtually wiped out Smallpox, and Yellow Fever; it brought under rigid control Typhoid, Diphtheria; it found the sulfp drugs and penicillin. In the fight against other diseases the public has responded magnificently. Pitifully small amounts of money, however, have been contributed for Cancer research, education and care. Last year the American people contributed only $750,000 to fight Cancer. Yet campaigns to fight other diseases, which can't even be compared to Cancer as killers, receive $10,000,000 to $12,000,000 a year (for each campaign) from the American people! Why is this so? Because the people haven't known how great is the need; haven't known what they could do. Cancer is not spectacular. Cancer is not contagious. Cancer does not come upon us in epidemic form, where whole communities are stricken. Cancer makes no sensational sweeps through this community or that. Because it doesn't, the public has not been aware of Cancer's awful toll. Yet, Cancer strikes down men and women in all walks of life, killing 165,000 , Americans every year. WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT? Can we do anything to cut down this awful toll of American lives? The answer is "YES", an emphatic "YES." Thousands of lives can be saved by teaching every man and woman to recognize early possible cancer symptoms through a program of widespread education and by the establishment of detection clinics. For medical science has shown that certain types of Cancer, if taken in time, can now be cured by X-ray, radium or surgery. Thousands more lives can be saved—in fact Cancer may well be made a minor ;*use of death—if scientists are supported in a full-scale integrated research program. These great forward strides can be taken and ample, up-to-date care for advanced Cancer patients can b& provided through the efforts of the American Cancer Society. The Society, with its Field Army of 300,000 volunteer workers, is now conducting a'nationwide campaign to raise $5,000,000. Doctors and scientists who are devoting their lives to wiping out.Cancer estimate that at least $5,000,000 a year is necessary. It is not the other fellow's job. It is your job—to save yourself and those you love. GIVE—get your friends to give. The smallest gift is q$ important gs the largest. • County Chairman D. I. MORTON Says "This is a great humanitarian enterprise in which every citizen of Ottawa County should cheerfully have a part. This county has never been small or penurious in any worth-while undertaking, and"! feel your response in this case will be no exception to the rule. Let's do a bigger and better job than we have been asked to do. Let's welcome an opportunity to have a part in guarding those we love."'
