TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER T, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Extensive Studies of Cancer Reveal Incidence of Disease WASHINGTON (AP) — An extensive U. S. cancer study indicates about one half of all cancers in women originate in breasts or sex organs compared with only one eighth of the cases in these areas among men. The figures are based on the first cancer study blanketing big population groups, covering about 15 million people in 10 metropolitan areas of the United States. The results were reported today in a paper prepared for the International Congress of Pathology by Dr. Harold F. Dorn of the National Institutes of Health at Bethesda, Md. Several hundred doctors from 39 countries are pooling information at the congress and seeking, among other problems, to find geographical patterns in disease and the causes. Dorn said that when all age groups are considered, the U.S. cancer rate is about the same, for males and females. But cancer strikes women more frequently during their reproductive years and dwindles somewhat in years after the menopause, he said. The disease was reported more dangerous for men after middle age. Dorn said most cancers in men affect organs that are subject to contact with environment—such as the mouth, throat, esophagus, skin and lungs. Cancer of exposed skin—on face, head, neck and arms—was said to be 46 per cent more common in • men than in women. Dorn said the study showed that by the age of 30 the annual number of new cases of malignancies of the reproductive organs of women is greater than that for all types of cancers found in men. "Not until the age of 50 does the total.male cancer rate begin to exceed the cancer rate of the reproduction sy§tem in women," Dorn said. "However, were reproduction system cancers excluded, the survey showed that all the more common forms of cancer oc- cur more frequently among men than among women." The chance of developing cancer is about one third greater for white persons living in the South and West than for those in the North, Dorn said, adding that skin cancer seems to account for this higher incidence. He said much of the difference may be attributed to a difference in ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. Cancer strikes at all ages but Dorn said the least threat for both sexes appears to be between the ages of 5 and 15, and that by age 50 the threat has increased 200 times over what it was at birth. The cancer risk at 20 years is •about the same for men and women, he .said, but at age 35 twice as many women as men have cancer. By the age of 60 in whites and 70 in nonwhites the greater risk is, faced by men, he Isaid, and this continues through ! the life span. .

Felix Carney. Mgr. 109 E. Main Ph. 3-3616 PHOENIX, Ariz. {# — Only a light vote was expected today as Arizonans selected primary candidates for Congress and governor. Interest centered largely in the candidacy for the Democratic nomination for governor of Ernest W. McFarland, former majority leader of the U. S. Senate. He is opposed by William F. Kimball, state senator from Tucson. The winner will take on the incumbent Republican governor, Howard Pyle, who is unopposed for his party's nomination. Richard F. Harless is seeking to return to Congress with two candidates against him for the Democratic nomination. They are L. S. (Dick) Adams, state repre-j sentative and A.' T. Spence, a Phoenix cattleman. John J. Rhodes, the Republican officeholder, is unopposed. G/ Sought in Strangling Of Irish Girl, 28 LONDON 0?) — An unidentified American soldier was sought for questioning today in the silk-stocking strangling of a pretty 28-year- old Irish girl. The girl, Ellen Carlen, was found yesterday on a bed in a Pimlico rooming house with a stocking taut around her neck. Beer .bottles and American cigarettes littered the room. Neighbors reported her boy friend had been an American soldier, but his'identity could not be immediately established. JACKSON, Miss. (fl) — A historic special session of the Mississippi Legislature was called today to lay the foundation for dodging the U. S. Supreme Court decision-outlawing racial segregation in pubilc schools. The key proposal was a constitutional amendment empowering the Legislature to abolish public schools. It provides two methods: 1. Statewide, by a two-thirds vote of the Legislature. 2. Local option, with individual counties and school districts being allowed to abolish their public schools and set up private systems. Leaders of the Legal Educational Advisory Committee said the amendment would be introduced and sent to the constitution committees of each house as any other amendment would be handled. The committee is composed of most important state officials. The LEAC rejected the idea of asking each house to go into committee of the whole ' ; to consider the amendment as soon as it was introduced." Fear of charges of ''steam-roller" convinced the LEAC the amendment should go through the usual process. The session was expected to last about six weeks,'depending'mainly on the amount. of opposition ' that pops up to the constitutional amendment.

The Sno-Buggy is also suitaole for boggy swamplands, shifting desert sands or any unstable terrain. Each of the four dual wheels has its own ouilt-in electric drive motor and gearing system, giving it all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering. Size of the huge rubber-tired wheels can be appreciated by contrast with men standing, before them, left.
