GRANGE HEAD DEFENDS WALLACE PLAN MAJOR ASSAULT ON DREADED ILL Data on Thousands of Cancer Cases on File CHICAGO, (UJ?)—Like field marshals studying battle tactics for a final assault on a heretofore impregnable fortress, America's finest surgeons Tuesday revealed outlines of a crusade to remove can- c:r as a major cause of deetn. Groundwork of the drive will be* laid at a special symposium Wednesday of the clinical congress of the American college of surgeons •which will lead the campaign. Emphasized as the first principle in tbe struggle was the assertion backed by best medical testimony that cancer, if detected early, is curable. Data on thousands of cancer cases has been assembled and will be presented Wednesday showing the ease and success of cures in which the disease has-been recognized at the onset. Education of the public to the fact that periodic examination by physicians will enable them to diagnose and eliminate conditions which might develop into cancer wf 3 named as the first step in the drive by Dr. Burton J. Lee, governor of the college of surgeons. He named cancer of the skin, lips, tongue, breast, cervix and stomach as curable in most instances by surgery, X-ray and radium. "If each individual in this country," said Dr. Lee, "would make it a rule to have a careful, thorough physical examination every six months, the cancer problem would be largely solved and many lives saved each year." One form of cancer should be eliminated entirely by simple medical examinations, Dr. Joseph Colt Bloodgood, Baltimore, Md., specialist in the disease, declared. This is cancer of the cervix, common among mothers. Examination of a nrtrther ItrTnontiiS aftw-al&Sjtfcfith of her child and a second examination- six months later would detect any condition which might develop into cancer and allow physicians to take successful preventive steps, he said, Dr. Clarence Cook Little, former University of Michigan president and now director of an anti-cancer society, pictured the extent of the medical battle line. There are now 300,000 cases of cancer In the United States, he asserted, with an accompanying huge economic loss. "AH the material which the •world needs for the greater prevention of cancer," said Dr. Little, "is education and opportunity to obtain at low cost professional help for which such education calls. Cancer is a disease which thrives «n ignorance." Tribune-Times Circulation Expansion Campaign Comes When Business Is Beginning to Revive For several months there has been a new hope in the minds and hearts of the American people that the way out of the "slough of despond" that has gripped the nation economically for the past three years, had been struck. As the fall season becomes a reality, this hope gains impetus and a general confidence in the steady progress of recovery is evident on all sides. With confidence comes the expectation of better times, of a brighter Christmas season and more' definite plans for the use o* one's time and one's resources as the personal contribution to recovery. The Ames Daily Tribune- Times has seen -the situation improving as the months have slipped away, and decided upon this fall as the opportune time to conduct a major circulation expansion campaign. $6,500 Cash Distribution This newspaper has set up a $6,500 cash fund which will be distributed 'among a large group of vrorkers in the campaign now under way. This distribution will be to people living in Ames ind in the Ames. trade territory. It will come as an aid to the Christmas shopping plans of all those who actively engage in the drive. It is opportunity knocking at the door of a substantial group of people who really believe that recovery is an actual fact, and that there is a share in re- Continued on Page Eight) Samuel Gompers Lives On in Bronze Memorial Labor paid impressive tribal* to Samuel Gompers, in dedication of the bronze monudfent to the late president of the American Federation of Labor, shown "at right, in Washington.

Senator Carter Glass, democrat, Virginia, who refused to become President Roosevelt's secretary of treasury, is preparing to challenge the constitutionality of the national recovery act when congress meets. The caustic, diminutive banking expert of the senate voted against the recovery act last spring and its workings thus far hare only confirmed him in his original position it was learned. This development came on the heels _ of a declaration before the American Federation of Labor by Senator Robert Wagner, one of the authors of the recovery act, who said that the NRA program had to be made stronger to bring real recovery. Word of the forthcoming opposition of Senator Glass developed when inquiry was made concerning the absence of the blue eagle from his two newspapers at Lynchburg, Va.

At the beginning 'of the school year, "William King, former janitor at the field house, was hired as locker room supervisor. Superintendent M. G. Davis reported on the success of this arrangement, nd on the unusually crowded conditions being experienced this fall. George Mayo, fireman at the high school heating plant, has been transferred to the field house, and Edward Pumroy, assistant at the field house, goes to the heating plants'Mr. Mayo" will assist Mr. King in handling the locker rooms. : This arrangement was approved by the board. There is not sufficient space in the locker rooms to store much of tLe athletic and physical training equipment, Mr. Davis reported to the board. The problem of stor- Says Statutes Permit State Booze Control DES MOINES, OLE) — The state of Iowa, under Its present statutes, can legally control and regulate the sale and dispensation of liquor thru a, state board or commission according to an opinion from the office of Attorney General Ed O'Connor. The opinion, written for the liquor commission Tuesday, states however that question of the legality of such a course depends entirely on the purpose of such regulation. ~* DES MOINES (CD —Total'mo- tor vehicle registrations on Sept. 1 were 619,081. which represented a decrease of 56,924 under the figure for Sept. 1, 1932, Supt.

The board approved the election of Miss Erma Wilkinson to teach the sixth grade at Welch school. Miss Wilkinson is a graduate of Cornell college, had taught in rural schools and at Dayton v Scranton and Perry. The position at Welch school is created by the forced division of a large sixth grade class. The matter of a school physician was discussed. The Ames Woman's club has found it impossible to continue their former project of paying tbe salary of the school physician, Dr. Andrew Ritan. The board is to assume, at least temporarily, this burden at a reduced salary from what the women's group paid.

CZAR IN DESPERATE MOVE TO MART GOVT. Orders Killing of Two Lieutenants to Seal Lips CHICAGO (UJR)— A ruthless gang czar, believed to have ordered the slaying of two of his lieutenants he suspected of, giving information to federal officers, fought desperately Tuesday to thwart the government war against crime. The deaths of Gus Winkler and Edgar Lebensberger, known for their gang connections, were ordered, federal officers believe, because of fear they might reveal the wide ramifications of a gigantic crime ring. Winkler was killed Monday by assassins who fired 72 shotgun slugs into his back a few hours before he was to have been questioned again concerning the ?250,000 Chicago mall robbery-last December. Lebensberger was found shot to death in his palatial north shore home last Friday. The deaths of Winkler and Leb- ensterger remained as perplexing a mystery as does the "higher-up" from whom they took their orders and relayed them to hundreds of bank robbers, bond thefts and racketeers in a dozen middlewest- ern cities. Both Big Shots- Both were regarded as "big shots" among gangsters because of their reputed connections with someone powerful enough politically to prevent a too close scrutiny of their activities by city and state authorities. Under the direction of this modern Fagin, according to revelations already made, a ring that included at one time or another such notorious gunmen as Harvey Bailey, Fred (Kfflfcr) Burke, George (Machine Gun) Kelly, Verne Miller, and Frank Nash, robbed scores of banks and mail trucks and trafficed, in millions-of"" dollars"* iavstalen bonds. ' — More than a score of men, suspected of connection with the gang, already are under arrest here. Warrants have been issued for at least seven others. Those under arrest include John J. (Boss) McLaughlin and Edward Sans. Lincoln Job Included , The list of crimes attributed 'to the gang includes several kidnap- ings, the machine gun robbery of a. Lincoln, Neb., bank of $2,500,000 in 1930, and the $250,000 Chicago mail robbery last December. McLaughlin and Sans were arrested-'n connection with the Chicago mail robbery Lebensberger had been indicted in connection with the same- crime. Because of fear he might give federal agents information, he was marked for death. Apparently he killed himself rather than await gang assassination.

Aunt Lindy, Tribune-Times writer, is now in Chicago attending the world's fair, from where she is sending a daily letter to Tribune-Times readers. Dear Tribune-Times'Readers: ' Upon being admitted to the Chicago fair grounds Sunday morning, we were simultaneously struck with the vivid coloring and a crisp October lake breeze which sent both thrills and chills up our spine. Before us lay a veritable jig-saw puzzle, "A Century of Progress" to be worked out without even a mind picture to guide us. We were plum flabbergasted! We could see tho that this vast fair was taking hundreds of better women than us "off their feet." You can see everything here from scientific wonders to heroes. On one hand frivolity and gaiety and on the other men dying with their "boots" on—More than ever we respect our American heroes—They smilingly suffer. As we viewed the arts and crafts of the world, looked at a maze of scientific wonders, were startled at the advancement in communication and transportation and then as we burst with pride at our progress in education the idea of the puzzle became clear. "The world is ruled by mind." The high light of the day was a quotation found in the Social Science building— "Out of the .Bounty of the earth and the labor of men Out of th« longing of the hearts and the prayer of souls Out of the memory of ages and the hopes of the world God fashioned a nation in love and called it America," Sincerely.

Fire prevention week opened thruout Iowa on Monday, with programs of varied character under way in many cities and towns, having as their objectives the awakening of the public mind and thot toward the prevention of fires, and toward the elimination of petty carelessness that is responsible for so much of the nation's fire loss. In Ames, fire prevention will be discussed In the schools, and there will be newspaper publicity given to the general subject. Fire prevention posters have been placed in several downtown windows.

Agricultural recovery, Smith continued, resolves itself into three- points, each of .which he considers necessary for solution of the problem: 1. Agricultural production must be controlled insofar as safety will permit by reduction of crop acre- ages. 2. Russia must be recognized and the huge market there for American products cultivated carefully. . . . 3. The American dollar must be stabilized or some form of controlled inflation instituted.
