Among the celebrities present were Robert Preston, who played the part of Prof. Harold Hill who sold the town instruments for a boys' band in both the stage and film versions, and actress Shirley Jones. Miss Jones portrays "Marion the librarian" in the film. Also here for the festivities was comedian Buddy Hackett.

NEW YORK (UPI) - For the first time cancer research has had a very close look at what cancer does to nature's own mice •the mice housewives may have a chance to shriek at and which may be living right now in your cellar. A large amount of cancer research is done in mice but these mice are science's animals rather than nature's. They've been selectively bred, cross-bred and inbred over, hundreds of mouse genera; tions, in ways that .couldn't possibly happen naturally. In their hereditary chemistry nature couldn't recognize some of these lines as mice. Some lines are highly susceptible to cancer. Other lines are as highly resistant. The question is, how far are these mice from nature's own as regards cancer? Drs. Howard B. Andervont and Thelma B. Dunn of the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, Md., have been seeking the answer for 14 years. They now report that in nature cancer and mice are well acquainted, and apparently much better acquainted than cancer and MRS. HOWARD DIES NEW YORK CUPD-Mrs. Jack R. Howard, wife of the president and general manager of Scripps- Hfoward newspapers, died of a cerebral hemorrhage in New York Hospital today. She was 46.. 'Besides her husband, Barbara toward is survived by two children, Pamela, who was graduated .ast week from Sarah Lawrence College, and Michael, who recently completed his freshman year al Yale; and a sister, Mrs. Roberl A. Glaenzer of Perrysb'urg, Ohio. 26-INNING GAME BOSTON (UPI) - The famous 26-inning game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Braves on May 1, 1920 was played in the relatively fast time of three hours and 50 minutes.

In laboratory mice that approximates the life span, but at two years the mice were flourishing, still. Thereafter the mice were allowed to live for two years and six months. • '. • • Drs..

That's a percentage of .43,5, .much .higher than any of the various calculations or incidence of cancer among human beings. Hits Older Mice Of these mouse cancers, 64 per cent appeared in mice' who were far past the prime of mouse life. Only one cancer appeared in a quite young mouse and the re maining tumors were spread out over mouse middle years. This has agreement with cancer and age in people. Lung cancer was the most common cancer among wild mice. II was similar to-lung cancer of inbred laboratory mice in which il also is common, but in the latter t usually occurs in multiples whereas 'in- wild mice there was only a single tumor. In inbred mice, lymphocytic leukemia also is common. There was only one case of it among .he wild mice. In inbred mice it may be caused by a virus. The scientists wondered if inbreeding either increased the susceptibility of mice to the virus or the activity of the virus or both; This question; they couldn't answer at once, but another question they could and did answer.
