Too Much Sun Exposure May Cause Cancer MINNEAPOLIS — Summer is the prime season for sun-worshippers to cultivate future skin cancer. As a future skin cancer prospect, there 3s none more promising than a blonde or redhead, whether male or female, basking faithfully on a bathing beach in quest of a saddle-leather tan. But people also have a strong chance of developing skin can cer in their later years if they herd cattle, build highways or play professional golf. The disease hits more men than women, especially those in outdoor occupations. So states a health bulletin from the medical department of Northwestern National Life Insurance company. An estimated 80,000 new cases of skin cancer develop each year in the U.S. The disease shows a significant preference for fair- skinned people who have had much exposure to the sun, and appears principally on those bodily areas which receive the most sun, namely the face, neck and the backs of the hands. This is the commonest variety of cancer, but fortunately it is also the one with the lowest mortality, says the health bulletin. Since it occurs on the surface of the body, it is easy to detect and accessible to treat. Most cases clear up readily under early and competent professional treatment. Yet some 4,000 skin cancer patients die each year, most of them because they .iave waited too long before seeking treatment. Many others suffer unnecessary disfigurement for the same reason, the insurance doctors warn. The destructive effects of excessive sunlight on the skin are ordinarily slow, but they are cumulative. Skin damage sustained in youth can be the site of cancer 20 or 30 years later. Most skin cancers occur in people aged 50 or over, but there are numerous cases in the forties and a scattering even occur in the twenties, usually in persons who have lived since birth or early childhood in sunny j southern latitudes and who have habitually spent much time in the sun. Lifeguards, ranchers, farmers, professional fishermen, golfers ano tennis players, are among the groups most subject to skin cancer. The most dangerous and difficult-to-treat locations of skin cancer are the lips, nose, ears, and around the eyes, particular- i ly on the eyelids, says the med-! ical bulletin. ', { Commonest starting sites for skin cancer are the little scaly spots and patches so often found on the skin of older people. These are called "senile ker- atoses," but they have no connection with the condition known as senility, and can occur in comparatively young people who Have had excessive exposure to the sun. Actually these are "overaged" patches of skin tissue—long hours in strong sunlight tend to age the exposed skin at a faster-than-normal rate. Yes, that bathing beauty .may have a 60-year-old skin by the time she's 40, if she suns herself faithfully enough! Only « small minority of ker- atoses develop into cancers, but should one start to enlarge noticeably, or if, when the crust comes off it looks raw underneath or bleeds, it should be examined promptly by a skin specialist. Any other long-standing skin blemishes which undergo noticeable change in appearance or size should also be checked. Any new skin lesion or abnormality which refuses to heal in a few weeks' time should be •examined, even though it is painless. Pre - cancerous and early cancerous skin conditions are usually painless. Excessive sun exposure can cause or aggravate certain other diseases, such as vitiligo, chel- itis, lupus erythematosus, etc., some of which are mild, and some very serious. Moderation is the best rule for enjoying the sun, skin specialists advise. If you're a blonde or a redhead (genuine), or freckle readily, be extra careful. Ask your doctor to recommend one. of the excellent protective creams now on the market, and use it when your work or play involves extensive sun exposure. And remember, says the insurance bulletin, if a deep tan seems absolutely vital in a campaign to capture a mate, or for social success, you can always get it out of a bottle! The Barricade Gilbert's 'What Young People Think' Drugs a Clear, Present Danger In Schools, Survey Reveals By EUGENE GILBERT Statistics indicate that an increasing number of teen-agers are becoming drug addicts. Federal, state and local authorities find it difficult to prevent drugs from getting into the hands of young men and women especially high school students. As soon as one "pusher," or dis- tributer of narcotics, is taken into custody, another springs up to take his place. Even more important than prosecution of those responsible for distribution of the drugs is the search for an effective method of educating teen-agers to the Milk Trade Bill Tabled by Senate By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) — The controversial milk bill, soured by heat from back home, stood on ice in the Senate today, its chances for passage apparently gone until autumn at least. By a 19-16 roll call vote Thursday, the measure was taken from the action calendar and placed on the table. The move came only hours after its backers had distributed a skimmed version in an effort to win votes. The bill, which would prohibit selling'of milk below cost at any stage of processing or distribution, had whipped into a major battle and drawn thousands of letters to senators' desks in the past week. Eight Democrats and 11 Republicans combined behind Sen. John Bowman's tabling motion after another bitter debate on the bilJ. Backers of the bill, including Majority Leader Sen. Raymond Dzendzel, D-Detroit, and Sen. Roger Johnson, D-Marshall, declared Bowman was trying to kill the. House-approved bill. Bowman contended the senators "should study this at home during the (summer) recess, then look at this thing with some sort of sanity and sense." The Roseville Democrat said he "is not going to sit here and consider legislation of this magnitude under this sort of pressure and with this many items on our calendar." The Senate must act on bills by Tuesday at this sitting of the legislature. The compromise attempt had stricken subpoena powers from the director of agriculture and removed the prohibition against extension of credit by milk processors to distributors. "But this substitute doesn't change enough to make the bill satisfactory to me," said Sen. Terry Troutt, D-Rofulus. Bowman said wage raises will boost the price of milk in August in any event, "and I don't see why the members of the Senate should get tagged with that." Supporters of the bill say It would protect the small dairyman. Opponents say it would result in higher milk prices. The bill does not set specific dangers of addiction. It is the contention of many authorities that the problem will never be solved until young people voluntarily refuse to purchase drugs, thus making it unprofitable for the illegal peddlers to operate. We asked 1,120 teen-age boys and girls whether they tr/ink the youths in their communities have drug addiction problems. An alarming 38 per cent said they personally were acquainted with drug addicts. Marijuana, in one form or another, was named by 42 per cent of those questioned as the drug most often used. The sniffing of glue, the least expensive of the habits, was seen by 15 per cent as the most common addiction. Thirteen per cent said they believed pep pills—or goof balls —were the most widely used. Named in lesser percentages were drugs taken with needles: heroin and cocaine. Sixteen per cent said that, at one time or another, they had smoked reefers, the cigarette like form of marijuana. More than 5 per cent admitted knowledge of pushers hanging around school grounds. Sixty-one per cent said they knew of no pushers. Perhaps .significantly, the remainder—33 per cent did not answer this question. Nine per cent admitted having taken pep pills, 14 per cent of the young men and 5 per cent of the young women. Thirty four per cent said many of their fellow students used the pep pills to keep them awake while cramming for examinations. How did they get these goof balls? They could be bought easily—said 25 per cent—right in their home towns. The youngsters had many suggestions on how to cope with the problem. Many, like 15-year-old | Sid Suggs, of Houston. Texas, thought "drugs should be made more inaccessible." George Las- brick, 17, of Hlbbing, Minn., said, "You can't enforce a stoppage; milk prices but does cost-to-distributor as minimum. With the minimum set the it will have to moral basis.' An 18-year-old be done on a Denver youth, Stan Clark, said he "didn't think very many people learn a lesson by being told." He suggested that users "possibly be taken to see, first-hand, the effects of drugs." Another 18-year-old, Susan Moore, of Stanford, Calif., closer count of called for'"a over - the - counter medicines; more instruction in schools as to the consequences, perhaps by films, lectures, textbooks; and an over-all awareness " Several teen-agers, including Jacquin Chrisco. 17, of Philadelphia, Pa., thought 'anyone caught selling drugs should. be put away for life." 206,478 Cars Built in Week DETROIT (AP) — U.S. auto makers built more than 200,000 cars this week, marking the 19th week in calendar 1965 in which they have exceeded that goal. The count was 206,478 cars, compared with 206,903 last week and 175,218 in the year- The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Q — Is it safe to take medicine for a thyroid deficiency if you have glaucoma? Why is it when you take a diuretic the pressure in the eyeball goes down, then when you stop it goes up again? A—The thyroid preparations given for a thyroid deficiency can be taken without fear. In glaucoma there is an obstruction to the outflow of the fluid within the eyeball. This is aggravated when the total blood volume is Increased by drink- Ing excessive amounts of water and partially relieved when water is eliminated from the body by taking water pills (diuretics) or by excessive sweating. Q — Is is possible to have a cataract with glaucoma? If so. would an operation improve the sight? A — Since glaucoma is a disease of the eye's fluidcircul- ating mechanism and cataract is a disease of the crystalline lens there is no connection between the two diseases. It is possible (but not advisable) to have both. Both can be treated by operation and in either case the result should be improved vision. Q—My doctor has been giving me Bonnatol tablets for my colitis. Are there any ingredients in them that would increase the pressure in the eyeballs? I am terribly afraid of glaucoma and would like to avoid all drugs that might cause it. A—What your doctor is giving you is Donnatol, a combination that contains a small amount of atropine among other ingredients. Atropine and belladonna (from which it Is derived) will not increase the pressure in a normal eyeball, so if you do not have glaucoma there is no need to worry. The drug should not. however, be taken by anyone who already has glaucoma. The best way to avoid glaucoma is not to avoid taking Donnatol but to have a periodic check of the tension in your eyeballs. In this way if a tendency to glaucoma does develop prompt treatment will save your sight. Q—I have been having night sweats for three weeks. My doctor says it is part of the change of life. I am 67 years old. Could there be some other cause? What should I do about it? A—The hot flashes often accompanied by profuse sweating, associated with the menopause, may occur any time of the day or night. When they persist long after menstruation has ceased some cause other than the change of life mu s t be sought. A low grade abscess at the root of a tooth is a possible cause. Other common causes are tuberculosis, a deficiency of vitamin C or D and a general rundown condition. The treatment would have to be directed at the underlying cause. Church Services ago week.

Hospital Proposals Discussed At Meeting of County Board BESSEMER — Proposals relating to Grand View Hospital which came before the Board of Supervisors this week aroused the interest of supervisors resulting in considerable discussion. Supervisors were interested in whether a site has been selected. Superintendent Frank Drazkowski said the board of trustees has had some discussion on the site and they strongly favor the location of the existing hospital. However, the final determination of its location rests with Joseph R Hominga, director of the Hill-Burton fund distribution and the Michigan Advisory Hospital council. Drazkowski said that the present site meets the criteria for site selection; it has room for expansion, being located on 80 acres of county property with two forties adjoining on the south' and six forties on the north, which are unoccupied; it is In the center of population served by the hospital; it is close to a highway; and in a quiet neighborhood away from tarfflc conjestion and industrial activity and other factors. Use of the sight would eliminate costs of purchase of a new site and other connected expense. The utilities are all available on the present site, which is an economy factor. * * * To the question as to whether or not any consideration has been given to the disposition of the present building when and if vacated, Drazkowski said several suggestions have been made by various people. He said several people have suggested that it be used for a college dormitory, in the event that the col- State Civil War Flags Restored LANSING (AP) — Nineteen Michigan Civil War battle flags lege board of trustees decided to establish the community college on the site He said there are t great many advantages in a college-hospital complex. The proximity of the hospital to the college could enrich the college program by the adfition ot several hospital service programs such as medical technician, x-ray, nurse's training and other hospital service programs. He noted that the practical nurses training course conducted at the local hospitals is under the sponsorship of Northern Michigan University. It could be under the local community college, he said. He noted that the 97 per cent of the local practical nurse trainees have passed state board examinations a s compared with an average of 75 per cent on a state wide basis. The present hospital building would lend itself easily for dorm- 'tory use, he said. * + * The criteria for college alte selection, practically- parallel those for hospital selection, h« said. in the discussion the board moved that the hospital and health committee contact the college board of trustees for a joint meeting to survey the possibility of selecting the hospital location for the proposed college site. Plans for the proposed new hospital building were discussed with Everett Thorsen, architect of the firm Harold Starin, Architects of Duluth, who has worked with the board of trustees for several years beginning with plans for remodeling the present building and subsequent plans to build an addition. He said the board of trustees used every means possible to avoid building a new structure and made several trips to Lansing to discuss plans with Hill-Burton and hospital authorities. He said he was present with representatives of the hospital board on several of these Interviews. Asked his opinion on remodel- ing vs a rew buildln S. Thorsen " er they underwent extensive restoration by a New York expert. The flags, carried into battle by men of Michigan's 5th through llth infantry regiments, had been shredded by shot andj shell of numberous battles. j There were 116 of these Civil! War colors presented to the state in 1886. They were in stalled in air-tight cases in the rotunda in 1909. . The flags slowly deteriorated with time, and in 1963 the legislature appropriated $12,500 for a restoration program by thej Michigan Historical Commission. Another $10,000 is being asked in the budget this year for continuation of the project. Mrs. Josephine Roser of Fort Montgomery, N.Y., an expert in flag restoration, since has restored 38 of the flags. The flags of the llth through 15th Michigan infantry divisions were taken out of their cases Wednesday for shipment to New York for restoration. , it takes four to six months to j process one case of flags and it| will be several years before the restoration project is completed. of the state fire marshall and health department, for about one-half million dollars. The renovation would be temporary, he said, because the modern hospital structural features are far different than those of 40 years ago when Grand View was constructed on tuberculosis sanitarium standards of the period. Renovation would necessitate moving of numerous walls to enlarge rooms, rearrangement of service facilities and numerous other structural changes. This could not be done without decreasing the number of rooms considerably, resulting in inadequate room capacity to care for the patient load. Also, remodeling would interrupt hospital operation which would result in loss of patient service and revenue. * * ik- There are no Hill-Burton funds available for such remodeling, he said, and the local taxpayers would be investing almost one-half million and have a hospital, which at best, would need to be replaced or changed with- Club to Have First Meeting on Aug. 30 ONTONAGON — The first meeting after the summer recess will be held Aug. 30. with a 6:30 dinner at Silver Court, it was decided at a meeting of the Past Matrons Club.

'Navigator' Test Success CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — A 1,000-pound experimental payload carrying an "electronic navigator" rocketed 400 miles high Wednesday and used a telescope-eye to lock onto the North Star for guidance. The Air Force announced success of the test, the first for a new star-tracking guidance system which might steer future missiles or spacecraft. The payload later plunged to a fiery atmospheric friction death 225 miles southeast of Cape Kennedy. It carried a compact inertial! - I telescope peered into the heavens, sighted the North Star, and hitched onto it for a reference. _ that the board of trustees seriously con-' sidered building an addition to house patients and remodeling the existing structure for various hospital service departments such as laboratories, offices and food service facilities. He said plans and cost estimates of this project were prepared, and it was found that the cost would be little less than for a new hospital building In answer to the board's query for his opinion, he said, a new building as the most economical and the best choice and best course of action. Constructed pursuant to regulations of the various state agencies, the county could be assured that the hospital replacement problem would not com* before them for at least 40 years, he said. Plans for remodeling and adding an addition, were not fully approved by Hominga, although the addition. Hominga has strongly recommended the new structure as the best course of action, were points made in the discussion.
