TWENTY EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, SID. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Outpost Scores Victory Over Cancer p ! * r j • . 0ne County's Oinic Shows Big Benefits . - By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE ' r Associated Press Science Editor ! KINGSTON, N. Y.—One reason io^many die of cancer is that so tnany have no place for treatment. This fact is one of the first les- apns from the new Ulster County Tumor Clinic, estbalished here two years ago, in a small, new building «quipped for cancer, i ,This is "the first small community In 1 the United States to set up its c&n complete cancer service. Kingston is within three easy hours travel 'pf "the great New York City cancer Clinics. Presumably anyone that ! $lose can get -whatever Is needed for ^cancer. •"" But In the first 22 months of the TJlster clinic, the number of cancer cases in the county increased 4* per cent. That did not mean a real increase. It meant simply that many persons, who feared they had cancer, could not or would not go to New York because It was too far or too expensive. In the 22 months 849 persons visited the clinic. Only six per cent •were from outside the county. Of the total 327 had cancer. Included were 20 child visitors and two of them had cancer. , : - In the clinic's second year, the number of viistors who feared cancer, nearly doubled over the first .year's rate. What benelit did the cancer patients get? "•• "I firmly believe," says the director, Dr. Milton M. Grover, Jr., -who trained in New York'* Memorial Hospital cancer center, "that by far the greater majority of the cancer cases have been helped either in relief or alleviation of symptoms, or Improvement in general well being. It is Impossible to determine 'how many lives have been saved. Five years is the minimal survival period for a cancer case to be considered arrested. However, I am certain that many lives have been prolonged." v Two-third* of those who had no ': cancer had other troubles which were treated with the clinic's x-rays. The clinic cost $750,000. Of this •1300,000 was contributed by TJlster .taxpayers. The rest-was from the federal Hill-Burton Act for hospital aid; The upkeep comes from gifts and fees.

When this clinic was built the county authorities had the choice between the clinic and a new county building which was badly needed.

Roehl at Fallen, Mont., believe they have the nation's only flying parson. The minister of the Zion and Bad Route Creek Lutheran churches uses a Piper Cub to attend pastoral duties' in the rugged mountain region. Reverend Roehl flew with the Air Force during the war. At 40 miles above the earth the temperature reaches 170 degrees above zero, says the National Geographic society. Pitt Product Clips Capital PITTSBURGH—(INS)—A lot of credit for holding things together in Washington could properly go to a Pittsburgh concern. It is the -Pittsburgh .Cut Wire Company which has sold Uncle Sam 800,000,000 wire paper clips since the start of the Korean conflict. This amount, weighing about 1,000,000 pounds and. requiring 55,000 miles of wire, is enough to girdle the glo|« twice, with some to spare. The factory uses about a carload of wire a week, and although Pittsburgh is the . center of steel production in the U. S., most of the wire for paper clips, oddly enough comes from New England, St. Louis, Cleveland, and Buffalo. The company reports that unlike during World War n when paper clips were in short supply because of a metal shortage, inventories of raw materials at this time are quite large. Two Licensees V Cited By Board For Violations The Board of License Commissioners for Allegany County have cited two establishments holding licenses to sell alcoholic beverages to appear February 19 at 10:30 a. m. to answer charges of violating, the liquor laws.

MEMORIES: By HERMAN A. PARK AP Newsfemtures INDIANAPOLIS — Hilton TJ. Brown, 92-year-old dean of Indiana newspapermen, has fulfilled an "urgency that came with old age"— the publication of his autobiography. It required two years of writing and a fidgety wait lor public reaction, but "A Book Of Memories" has now been issued, unfolding thi story—not of his life—but of his times and friends. Brown has been with the Indianapolis News for 70 years and has been associated with Butler University 77 years. He is still, actively interested in both. The,.News Associated Press membership certificate is held by Mr. Brown. "When one writes an autobiography," Brown begins his book, "he is practically preparing his own funeral sermon and reminding his friends that at the obsequies he will be present but not voting." Brown, gentle - mannered and highly respected by colleagues and friends, has filled the book with lively incidents, many of them poking fun at himself. ' Hoosier Editor At 92 Writes Autobiography hibited him from telling how the Queen, after she left Indianapolis, told New York reporters that the most fiolished, most handsome and most cultured gentleman she met on her tour of the United States was Hilton U. Brown of Indianapolis. Describing himself in "my sunset days of life," Brown dedicated the book; to "generations 'of boys and girls who through the years have toboganned on Brown's hill." "I think how they symbolize life itself, the achievement fo the ride and the ever present need to rise again," he writes. HILTON U.

The council amended zoning ordinances to ban opera schools from residential districts and the school moved downtown. The would-be Carusos and budding prima donnas now practice in the rooms over the jewelry store and in a radio station's soundproof studios. Singing isn't the only subject taught. Students also get training .n opera dramatics, costuming and stage techniques. If they wish, they can receive undergraduate credit at the university at Chapel Hill about 30 miles away. About 20 students are enrolled. Most take full-time work, but some :ome in for evening classes. s The operas the students take on the road with the Grass Roots company are all given in English. This is the only way opera will ever gain a secure foothold in America, says Bird. Faculty members and local singers are recruited to fill out the casts for Grass Roots productions. Music is supplied by Mrs. Rucker at One piano; .In choosing operas for production, Bird steers ...away from such heavy fare as Wagner. Comic opera is the standard choice. Mozart's "School for Lovers" is a favorite. The company also has presented Bizet's "Carmen," and Verdi's "La Traviata." By BRYAN HAISLIP AP- Newsfeatures •RALEIGH, N. C. — The glitter of the Diamond Horseshoe of New York's Metropolitan Opera House is reflected in a studio over a jewelry store here. It's a long jump between the two points, but Director Robert C. Bird of the Carolina Opera School believes some of his students can make the grade. The school, launched under the extension service of the University of North Carolina, already has some of the glamour of the Met. One of its staff members is Norman Cordon, a. native North Carolinian who sang baritone roles with the Metropolitan. Another member, of the staff is Mrs. Estelle Rucker, equally famed as a concert pianist and as Vice President Alben Barkley.'s mother- in-law. Director Bird sees a future for the school as bright as the wares sold in . the jewelry '-store below. There's not another quite like it in the country, he declared. Some other universities offer training in opera, but this school has its own touring company to give students actual on-the-road experience, Bird explained. The Grass Roots Opera Company, a project of the North Carolina Federation of Music Clubs, helps the students take the music of Verdi and Mozart to small towns and rural areas of the state. The federation also helped launch the school. Bird, a former director of the Fort Worth, Tex., Civic Opera Association, said he has found a lot of enthusiasm for opera in touring the state. He directs the opera company as well as the school. The picture wasn't so rosy when the school first set up shop in a Raleigh residential district last fall. After the first few operatic trills sounded through the neighborhood, distressed citizens took their complaints to the city council. V- Fisher & Robinette 493 BALTIMORE AYE.

Patterned after the uniform vehicle code, the law provides that if a chemical test shows .15 or more per cent of alcohol in the blood, the suspect is officially drunk. If there is less than .05 per cent alcohol present, sobriety is presumed. Prom .05 to .15 per cent is the "twilight" zone; you may or may not be drunk. In this case "other evidence" enters into the decision. The royal python, longest snake in the world, has been known to reach more than 30 feet. Beer License Sought Irene J.
