The booklover is one who has great dignity .in reception of nbv ideas and who tries to understan them and get from them what h can instead of just passing them of because they are new to him, sh said. "We love books because we ar ·lovers of life and books are th records ol life," she declared. "Books are the unifying elements of genera tions." ' ' Rev. C.

EXA.MPX.U,, FEW ENEMIES/ HEX6E- *·- Scientist Discovers Micro-Organism That Be Cancer Origin By United Prc»i. MILWAUKEE, Wis., Jan. 27.--Dr. William G. Docrn, Mercy Hospital research bacteriologist, announced today the discovery of a microorganism which he believes is the tirobublc cause of cancer and said ac is experimenting with a treatment which, in a few cases, has halted the disease's progression. He said the micro-organism--a living organism visible only through a microscope---has a special affinity for the sex cells of both male and female animals. He declined to reveal details of the treatment because its success has not been established definitely. 'I have many cancer patients I have been treating," he said. "In some,. the disease has remained unchanged for seven years. 'But I need much more research to determine how successful it is. I am using surgery only us a minor method--for restoring functions and in removing dead tissue." Doern is 65, the son of a Jericho, Wis., farmer, and has been experimenting in the cancer field for nearly 40 years. The discovery which he first disclosed last night at a banquet meeting of the Mercy Hospital staff, was made during experiments which he and his staff hnd conducted since 1932 when they first came across the micro-orgnnism. He made the announcement, he said, fully aware that scientists the world over have devoted years of painstaking research to the ailment. "The micro-organism is directly transmissible to the offspring of an infected m;iic or female and is found in 40 per cent of the babies," he said. "Not only is it transmitted to the first generation of baby animals, but it also is transmitted to the second generation, or grand babies of in- noculated animals." He said its affinity for the sex Rerm of plants is also demonstrable. Some plants, he said, morel/ arc hosts to the germ and develop no mali/rnant growths. · "The goose foot weed, common In temperate zones, is one which will develop n tumoroun /jroxvth," he said. "Celery also is a host plant but will r.ot develop n tumor, although the germ is transmissible in its seed. He said his experiments had been made with white rates and white mice. His research laboratory noiv Includes 300 animals under heredity tests for cancer. After the birth rf an animal which carries the infection by heredity, the micro-organism passes tbrouKh n long dormant period of from seven to 1C months when a Fire Wrecks Catholic Church at Louisville By United PrcM. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan'. 27.-Firemen brought under control ear]} today a fire which had swept through St. Anthony's Catholic Church, schoo and gymnasium, causing damage estimated at $300,000. Approximately 1,000 persons, whi were watching a basketball game in the gymnasium when the fire broke out, fled to safety. preserved sho\vin£ tumors. Doom said his observations hai shown that cancer usually is asso elated with a mixed infection whicr lias led him to believe the infection ploys a part in nutrition o a spccii'c micro-organism, thcrcbj causing uncontrolled cell growth o malignant tumors. "Experimental work added pro ducts of bacterial decomposition o organic matter to the usual bullion culture media," he said, "and w succeeded in getting a growth of ; special micro-organism which is th piobablc cause of cancer.

He ordered that all authorities and irganlzations in newly occupied ter- ·itory inintaln contact with military md judicial authorities regarding the administration of justice, and added: -he classification of prisoners is he task of military justice." Street cars and subway trains resumed service today. Youths and girls milled in the streets, carrying nationalist flags and shouting "Long Live Spain!" Street cleaning squads started sweeping up tons of waste japcr and rubbish. Brigadier General Eliseo Alverez, under secretary of public order in the nationalist government junta, was named chief of all services, civil and military, in the newly occupied area. As the orders wen' out for members of the "fifth column" to report to the authorities this morning for immediate duty. General Alvcrcz also broadcast orders by radio that engineers must report to the telephone building, ready to restore full telephonic communication, and that all former naval officers and men in the Barcelona area must report for duty. PRESIDENT ASKS FIFTY MlLLIONS FO/RARMY PLANES WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.--President Roisevelt today asked Congress for a 560,000,000 emergency appropriation for purchase of 565 new combat planes for the Army. The fund would be used to make an immediate start on the $552,000,000 defense expansion program that Mr. Roosevelt previously hai outlined. Mr. Roosevelt's request that firbl funds under the program of defense expansion be spent for airplanes was in line with Administration emphasis on speed in building up America's air power. Arrangements were made to celebrate masses at all churches. In all' the city, only one church had been open under the loyalist regime, nationalist authorities said. This one was for Basques. During the night, the nationalist troops fraternized with the people of Barcelona, promenading the main streets with girls, many playing guitars and singing nationalists songs. The royalists o£ the Carllst organization were particularly well received, identified by their red berets. Crowds gathered, at celebratory .bon fires, made of old loyalists signs. malignant tumor may develop. -Many organism was recovered and cultured post-mortem jpccimcnts have been from those tumors." r;t the Whitlatch funeral home.
