r 3i GelisbufQ R^Oi$ttr>MQil, Golgaburfl, III. Wtdnesdoy, April 25, 1973 ixon % Prestige, Ability to Govern tlinge on Watergate Case Answers 'men the Watergate Incident Ke 10 months ago nobody had the temerity to ask President Nixon whether he Was personally involved in it. Wartlaateii WliKow And on Aug. 29 when he told newsmen that an Investigation into the incident showed that "no one in the White House staff, no one in this admlnistra' tion« presently employed, was involved in this very bitarre . incident,*' that seemed to cover him also. But last week, shortly after he disclosed tliat major new developments had been discovered in the case, he sent his '.. press spokesman out to say ;^at ttiese earlier statements and the whole litany of denials from various other administra tion officials were now "inoperaUve." So it was that earlier this week in Key Biscayne, Fla., When another presidential spokesman flatly denied that Nixon had prior knowledge of the illegal acts committed m his behaif^when he said, in other words, that the President of the tlnited States had not committed a crime—it was news. ^^^^^ tragic Dimensions This< as much as anything else, demonstrates the tragic dimensions of the Watergate scandal. Already it has claimed as its victim L. Patricic Gray III, whose' nomination as FBI director was withdrawn by NiMon when senators objected to the way he investigated the case. Seven other persons have gone to Jail and it's quite likely more will follow. Additionally, it is expected in the near future to force major reshuffling of the White House staff and the departure of some of the major wielders of national power over the past four years. ^^^^ The President is faced^wlth the humiliating spectacle Of his most trusted aides and polltieat advisers—the Smoothly running team that last November gave him the greatest political victory of his long career publicly trading charges and counter-charges and engaging in self-serving leaks to news* men in a bitter struggle for survival. Hide From View This can only be a source of severe embarrassment and Nixon could not be faulted for trying to hide Some of it from public view. But he may face even more severe embarrassment when he addresses the central Question! When did he himself learn of these illegal aetivities and what did he do about them? Despite all the dissembling and evasions of the past lo months this question has not been answered. The response he gives where he draws the line between covering embarrassment and obstructing justice will determine the most important aspect of the Watergate case: How badly the Presl dent's personal prestige and credibility and« ultimately, his authority to govern were damaged. Savage Cells: Cancer 'Cure' Elusive Despite Day-by-Day Gains By DAVID HENDIN NEW YORK (NEA) - At some time during the liveS' of one out of every four ; Afiiericans a single cell will undergo a drastic and devastating change. the alteration may be cfaused by chemical irritants, radiation, infectious agents •• .First.iii.aJgene!!.. programmed into the individual's body from his conception. Whatever the reason, these cells, the tiny building blocks Which form every living part of the human body, become malignant, or cancerous. SAVAGELY THE cell divides into two, then four, eight and so on. All resultant cells , are malignant and the end result is a cancerous tumor. As the cells reproduce, some break aWay and establish tiiemseives in other parts of the body. If this abnormal growth and spread is not controlled, the victim will die. And last year the death rate from cancer rose at its fastest pace in 22 years, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. In its monthly report the center said that the cancermortallty rate was 166.8 per 100,000 deaths in 1972, compared with 161.4 in 1971. This rate of increase Was about three times the annual average since 1950. Although these statistics are labeled "provisional," experience has shown that they will probably differ Only by a fraction of a percentage from the refined final data not yet available. EXPERTS EXPUIN this rise in various ways, tHit most agree that a continually in- creasbig exposure of man to chemical carcinogens in his environment is probably Ui- volved. In 1973, about 350,000 Americans — 960 each day — will die of cancer. About 665,000 cases will be diagnosed this year. In 1973, more men will die of cancer than women by a margin of nearly 55 to 45. Cancer will cut short the lives of some 4,000 children under 15 years of age. And of the Control Possible Fully 85 per cent of all cancers could be controlled today if the public Was more conscientious, says American Cancer Society President Dr. Arthur James.

MANY CANCER victims will not die of the disease. More than 220,000 will be saved this year, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). The ACS considers a cancer patient "cured" if he remains without symptoms of the disease for five or mote years. Champion or A.C.

But many of those saved still will not consider themselves lucliy. They will have undergone painful or disfiguring therapy by the Icnife, X - ray or chemical agents in at attempt by physicians to rid their bodies of the savage cells. The bodies of others, less fortunate, will retain parts of the malignancy and the dis* ease will linger for montha or years before it ends in death. Many times in years gone by Americans have been led to believe that miraculous cures for some, or all, types o.f caner were in siglit. But there is not yet any real "cure" for cancer, the catchall term that is commonly used to describe what some scientists believe to be 100 or more separate diseases. DO NOT l)OtJBT that ad- vahces are behig made almost daily in laboratories around the world. But the battle ttgainst this relentless and un- discrimhiating enemy is not bn easy one. And today, iVith their arsetials of effective drugs and thefapies, the cancer fighteril afe as much on the offensive as they are on the defensive. The public could help — more than most people are willhig to believe. "With the preventive and diagnostic sliiils available today we could control fully 85 per cent cf all cancers. We could practically make it an innocuous disease," ACS president Dr. Arthur G. Jamed said in a recent interview in Nogales, Ariz., where the society held its annual seminar fOr science journalists. "SIMPLY BY seeing their physicians early and heeding the seven danger signals, cancer could be cut by 65 per cent," he said. However the Ohio surgeon noted that most people usually thinlc "it isn't serious." (The ACS strongly recommends annual physicals for all persons over 40 years of age.) Another 20 per cent of all cancer deaths in this country, according to James, are due to cigarette smokiPg, a habit which to the dismay of health professionals has increased in recent years. Particularly displeasing, James says, "is the tragic ki- crease hi the number of young people smoking cigarettes, particularly girls." ,THE ACS blames this partially on the fact that when the ban on broadcast cigarette advertising occurred t w o years ago, fair share exposure treatment for anti-cigarette messages disappeared. The ACS is not pressuring the broadcast industry to again begin broadcasting large numbers of anti - smoking spots. "We are calling for extensive new research in the areas of motivation — to learn why people smoke — and to learii how they may rid themselves of this addicltion," Dr. James says. (NEXT: How the Cells Spread) Offilvie Will Be Decorated MOLINE - Gov. Daniel Wallier will decorate his predecessor, former Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie, with the regents' award of the Lincoln Academy of Illinois at the academy's annual convocation here May 12. Walker, as president of the academy, will also honor Frank E. Vandiver with the regents' award. Vandiver, provost of Rice University, Houston, Tex., will deliver the principal address at the convocation on tlie subject of Abraham Lincoln. The regents' award of the Lincoln Academy is presented periodically by the governing lioard of the academy to, individuals who, in their opinion, exemplify the ideals and 'iBohivements' of Abraham Lincoln. practice of law in Chicago, served successively as special assistant to the U.S. attorney general, sheriff of Cook County, and president of the Cook C!ounty Board of Commissioners prior to his election as governor. His administration was noted for its support of constitutional reform — a new state constitution was ratified in 1970 — and for introducing private business methods and environmental reform into Illinois government. Vandiver, after receiving his Ph.D. in history from Tulane University in 1951, followed a career of teaching and writing history before his elevation to acting president of Rice in 19fi9 and to provost in 1970.
