J NUMBER ( s. rrnn.w, o( tobeii 8, i3.v Progress on Cancer UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA medial school is again in the news with a progress report on some encouraging work now Wing done on the X-ray treatment of tumors following injection.; of porphyrins. Porphyrins nre chemical compounds which form pigments -or coloring in hemoglobin, chlorophyll and many other pigments in am-reals and plants. Injecting them inio cancer patients and following up with N-ray treatment seems 1o offer a promising proccdnie toward conquest of this dread disease. University doctors are emphatic that "the procedure must not in any sense be considered a cure for cancer or even a completely new treatment for cancer." Only 38 patients have been studied to date. Out in these CH 'results are sufficiently encouraging to warrant continued study." Work on porphyrins, x-raya and cancer has been a team project involving the departments of medicine and surgery and the division of radiation therapy in the medical school. Drs. Samuel Schwartz, Karcl Absolon and Halvor Vermund have been leaders in the work but they have had the active collaboration of 39 other staff members. Financing has come from the American Cancer society, the atomic energy commission and the United States public health service. This kind of co-operative approach, with many men and organizations working toward a common goal, indicates the vast dimensions of the mammoth assault now ber ; ing made on cancer. In that assault, the University of Minnesota is playing a notable role. '. It could be, in after years, that men may look back on a news item such as this and tay, "That was the break through." Newspaper Boy Day TODAY, the last day of National Newspaper week, is National Newspaper Boy day. This is the day when all of the thousands of men and women in the newspaper business, all of the big wheels and the little cogs, pay their respects to a half-million-plus youngsters. It is, to some of us at least, a remarkable thing that with all the wonders of electronic uexvs transmissions, buildings full of skilled writers and editors and tons of imposing and complicated machinery, it still takes a teenage boy to carry the whole undertaking through to a meaningful conclusion the delivery of the newspaper to its readers. More than 86 per cent of this paper's 295,000 circulation is home delivered. Nearly 10,000 boys faithfully do their part of the lug job represented by those statistics to make it possible for thousands of families in Minnesota, the Dakotas and western Wisconsin to count on reading the Star at home. This is the boys' day. They deserve it. THE WOES' OF AGRICULTURE - CE" ,-l-"hlh'-"' ' '''---yj- Pike Treaty Was Long Disputed Purchase of important Minnesota area 150 years ago raised many legal questions By jay eik.ekto.v Of the Mir rdllurlal twit (tuft Today, YVilloughby Hancock of the Minnesota Historical society was to lead a "walking tour" around Fort Snelling and Mendota in commemoration of an event, 150 years ago, that laid the foundations of modern Minnesota. This was the signing of a treaty with the .Sioux by Lt. ZebuJon M. Pike, the young army officer for whom Tike's peak is named. for S200 worth of trinkets and CO gallons of liquor Pike obtained land nine miles square at the mouth of the St. Croix river, plus nhie miles on each side of the Mississippi river from the confluence of the Minnesota above St. Anthony Falls. For a century and a half the Pike treaty which covered most of what is now south Minneapolis and almost ail of modern St. Paul has been viewed with critical eyes by lawyers, historians and most of the Sioux nation. Even though the senate ratified it April 16, 1S0.X, there always have been questions about EVERYBODY'S IDEAS .Sr'if.y' MINNEAPOLIS STAR Some Old Friends Are Rebuked Britain's Cyprus policy denounced by an Oxford man Communications to this column must hear the name and address of the writer.

Foolish Wrestling To the Editor: It's about time we express our objection to the menace of the cheap exhibition of wrestling in our city. No wonder our youth take off, sometimes, as young savages, when it is the common, accepted practice for adult human beings to tear each other apart, to the wild cheers of bloodthirsty spectators. This is the most unchristian exhibition I have ever observed; and that includes the bull FORT SXELLIXG IX THE EARLY DAYS Where Pike's land deal was finally neural its validity. Was it in fact a legal treaty? First the constitutional lawyers point out that both signers of the treaty were "incompetent" that is they wcte without power to act for the parties they claimed to represent. I'ike was an army officer, a first lieutenant, but he was not authorized to sign a treaty for the. United States. The other chief signer, Le Petit Corlreau, or Little Crow (grandfather of the Little Crow who led the 1862 Sioux uprising) repre sented only one band of one trilte of the entire Sioux nation. There were no formal wit nesses to the document. From a legal standpoint there is no description of the land which the signers wanted to convey. Finally, there is no consideration (payment) definitely stated in the treaty.

Violence NO ONE can condone the sort of viohnce which characterised last month's anti-Creek riots in Turkey. That reaction in this country was as restrained as it was can he attributed to the rigorous censorship w.hich the Turkish government cxcicised over out-going news. Reports concerning the 'cal scope and violence of the riots came out pu corneal and thus had less impact than would have been the case had the news been freely and immediately reported. So one must sympathize deeply with the innocent Greeks (and Armenians and Jews) in Turkey and their kinspewplc in (iiveic, whose feelings reflected in an article in the adjoining columns. It is too bad. therefore, that. CI recce's position should y somewhat coir.j romised, in principle, by the conduct of Creek partisans of "" in Cyprus. On that island, nosis partisans have preached and practiced violence. They have been aided and neouraged by arms and explosives smuggled iu from Crceee and by Creek radio broadcasts in the most. violent terms. Here is a sample quotation ascribed t- Athens radio: "The intellectual (,!"

Anderson. Oleo and the Farmer To the Editor: Not recently, but over a period of time there have been many letters suggesting that if oleomargarine was to be colored it should be red, green, blue, etc., but not the natural yellow color of butter. I question whether anyone would recognize butter that was the natural color. Without yellow coloring added, it's rather pale. Obviously the laws forbidding the sale of yellow colored oleomargarine in Minnesota ate highly endorsed by the dairy industry. Most of us think of the dairy industry as part of the farming industry of our state, but isn't it an unfair competitor? I have a pound carton of oleomargarine. The ingredients read: Soybean oil SO'.;. Skim milk: moisture skim milk solids salt lecithin But even though it was a faulty document, it stuck. When the first permanent American garrison arrived in 1S19 they soon heard from other Sioux about the Pike treaty. Bands other than Little Crow's complained bitterly about what they PERENNIAL LEGACY From the WALL SIRI IT JOIR.VAL i( Fathers should not get too discouraged if their sons reject their advice; it will not be wasted.

Finally, in 1S3S, Major Law-rence Taliaferro, Indian agent a; Fort Snelling, definitely se. cured the title by paying $1,000 to the other Indians. The Sioux, however, continued to grouse about the deal down into the 1850s. After his real estate deal Pike went on up the Mississippi to the site of present-day Little Falls, Minn., where he built a eamp. He pushed on overland lo the posts of the Northwest Com pany, a isriiisn iur irauing concern, on Sandy, ( ass and Leech lakes, claiming this country lor the United States. The following year, Pike was ordered to the southwest and it was while exploring the upper reaches of the Arkansas river that he came in sight of the famous peak that now bears his name. He was captured by Mexicans and was held prisoner for a time at Santa Fe. In the War of 1812, he was inspector-general of the army which captured York (now Toronto), Canada. He was killed when the British fired a powder magazine la j their retreat from York. TWIN CITIES PRESS continue! ei's - "am jobless . . 1 1 American ft 100,0,10 oliserv-people roval ; II of J.

Boy Won't E bed in a Job Delinquent k Commenting on the stock market dip following President Eisenhower's heart attack, The Minnetonka Herald says it agrees that a president's health may profoundly affect politics and have a long-range effect on the nation's economy. "However . . . concern over a future business decline, based on' a possible change in political parties, can reach proportions large? enough to cause the collapse of cur economv. An investor's panic is a quick route to economic ruin." The Herald, edited by M. G.
