Stress Cancer Danger Signals This year the American Can cer Society's volunteers will not distribute fund - raising literature on their house-to-house crusade as in past years. They will leave instead copies of the leaflet on the seven dan ger signs of the disease. The spread of information about the danger signals is part of the society's drive to educate the public to be on the alert for the enemy that struck 4,553 persons in 1961, including 64 in Franklin County. The society has carried on a public education drive through the years since it was founded, but this year the aspect of public education has been stepped up. The education program is paying off, according to the society officials. Today one out of three cancer victims is cured SCS Men Studying Woodlands A woodland training school was held yesterday for Soil Conservation Service employes from Franklin, Miami, Johnson, Osage, Shawnee, Douglas and Wyandotte Counties. The school was conducted by John Strickler and Jack Kepler extension forresters from Kansas State University. Purpose of the school was to inform the SCS personnel of the possibilities for managing farm woodlands as income - producing enterprises. With this training these technicians are better equipped to advise the farmers in their respective counties as to the role woodlands can play in the total farm operation. Field studies were made on the Edward Reevey farm, the Eugene Bush farm and the Enul Johnson farm. These three loc- cations afforded different potentials for care and management studies that were discussed. Less than one out of five victims was cured 25 years ago. About 1,200,000 Americans have been cured in recent years and are now living active lives. There are seven symptoms which are possible indications of cancer: 1. Unusual bleeding or discharge. 2. A lump or thickening in the breast or elsewhere. 3. A sore that does not heal. 4. Change in bowel or, bladder habits. 5. Hoarseness or cough. 6. Indigestion or difficulty in swallowing. 7. Change in a wart or a mole. Anyone noticing any of these symptoms is urged to consult a doctor immediately. Mrs. Howard Henderson, 424 Vlaple, Franklin County chairman of the cancer drive, has asked everyone to read the informa- ion that will be given out by tfock and township workers.
