Controlled Heat Lowers Mortality Rate in Brooder MINNEAPOLIS (AP)—Not even babies in the most fatidious hospital get better temperature—and humidity attention than Richard Cole's chickens—and one result Is that he boasts a chick mortality rate less than a third as high as the commercial average. Cole, a young war veteran, has a 7.000-bird brooder house with special automatically controlled heat and humidity features. In 10-week tests he has shown a chick mortality rate of less than 3 per cent compared to the customary 10 per cent. Engineers of the (Mineapolis Honeywell) company who Installed them say the control arrangements are more elaborate than most home business-building air conditioning. The brooder house has a radiant- panel heating system under the floor, warmed by a conventional oil-fired furnace. It is a three-section house, with healing plant a nd storage bins In the center section, while each of the side seccions has a capacity of 3.500 chickens The building is so designed that one man can handle 7,000 birds a day, Cole iaid. There are exhaust fans operating from humidistats, and controls adjustments in inside temperature changes and automatically make State Labor Group To Oppose Fulbright LITTLE RC-!K.

Lewis, a mall carrier, was asleep Sunday morning when a car climbed a ten-foot embankment, smashed a fence, and hit the corner of Lewis' brick house. The house was knocked sideways about 15 inches on its brick foundation. State " :hway Patrolman Vernori Crowe estimated the damage at between S500 and S2000.

NKA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA)— Two important strides will be made Ihis summer in the fighl against cancer. One will be in the laboratory. Its ei'lect may not be knoxvn for years. The other will be in the direct treatment of cancer sufferers. Starting (his summer, "coball 60," a cheap substilute or equivalent of radium, will become available in increasing quantities from the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. There is nothing new in the of radio-active materials to fight cancer. But, up until now, radium iias been practically the only radio-active substance available lor this purpose. Its extreme rarity and high cost have kept it from being used as widely on cancer patients as doctors would have liked. At present, doctors can only save about 25 per cent of cancer victims. The widespread use of cobalt 60, alone, although extremely imporl- anl, will only inch up lhat percentage. Tht of X-ray and radio- aclive materials are only the second-best methods of fighting the disease. Surgery, cutting the cancer out, is .still considered the mast effective treatment. Hope for Big Step 'J»H' bi? step that is lo be ta>:en m the laboratory is the one lhat doctors hope will add mos.t of thcir ability to conquer the disease, in the long rll:~. According to Dr. John R. Heller. Director of the National Cancer Institute ol the US. Public Health Service, the development of the technique of growing human tissue cultures under cellophane—as a tool in research — hus been tiie greatest single accomplishment in the whole field In several years. Several chemicals, says Dr. Heller, hnve been discovered that have various ibillties to kill cancer cells in animals The crucial work of testing these chemicals on human tissue cultures under cellophane will begin this summer. At best, it will take years before any positive results can be obtained from this new line of research, Dr Heller explains. At worst. It could easily lead up a blind alley. They cant' be tested on human beings, because the scientists don't know II they are dangerous to healthy human cells. Only after the most careful experiments on the cultures will be possible to start testing on people. Seek "Wonder Drug" Finding the "wonder drug" which will cure all types of cancer is the ultimate goal of this particular branch ol research. But millions are being spent atld great scientific effort is being put into the cancer fight in many different directions. Great progress has been made in the quick detection of the disease. This is ol vital importance, because Ihe quicker It is discovered lu a person the easier it Is to cure. Newest and most effective method of early diagnosis yet devised is the cylologic test, an extremely complicated, but 90 per cent accurate A simple blood test to show the presence of cancer in a person Is the goal of this line of work. There are encouraging promises of such a lesl being perfected. To date one hasn't been developed which Is accepted by Ihc general body of cancer scpcialists. Surcrry Improved In the actual treatment of cancer victims, the refinement and improvement of surgery in general has provided (he greatest progress. That includes belter anesthetics, better methods of controlling infection and improved operating room procedures. Big strides have been taken in lowering the death rate among women wi-.o get breast cancer This is due largely to an educational campaign which has caused women About, 92 per cent of all st«l Is plain carbon steels, with the rest being alloy steels.
