Duck Hunters Die In Icy Water as Small Boat Sinks 11 y Durolhy Williams (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 (UP) — The war on cancer now is being fought in the college classrooms. Medical students-are demanding and schools are providing, more training in the dread disease. Several dental schools also hope to offer cancer courses soon. Dr. Thomas Parran, surgeon general of the. U. S. Public Health Service, today lent emphasis to the increasing role the colleges arc playing in tlic cancer war. He announced award of ?750.000 in grants from the National Advisory Cancer Council. In all. 46 grants went,to universities and hospitals nnd. for the first time, to foreign scientists working outside the United Slates. The grants are paid out of the $14,000,000 which Congress appropriated this year for the fight against cancer. A dental school was among those which received awards. The dental schools point out that often the dentist first is able to detect mouth cancer in. the early stages. , The two foreign recipients of grants were Dr. A. Lacassagne of the Institute Pasteur in Paris, who received 513,380, and Dr. L. Doljan- ski of Hebrew University In Palestine, who received 510,000. Dr. Leonard Scheele, director of the National Cancer Institute, said the making of the grants will "assist in the mobilization of an international attack on cancer.
