Erickson, Algpna, as 1956 fund-raising chairman for the cancer control program in South Kossuth county was made Saturday by Mrs i<'rod Genrich, Lone Rock, chairman of the South Kossuth ehap- er of (he American Cancer Society.

According to Dr. Erickson, the Cancer Crusade in April, designated by Congress as cancer control month, will have two objectives; first, the promotion of an educational program designed to ;aVe the lives of residents of Kossuth County (35 residents died of cancec in 1954); and second, the solicitation of funds to strike back at cancer through research. It is hoped cancer can be the next disease to be to be conquered as many others have been iii the past—and funds raised through the 1956 campaign will be put to the best possible use. 66th Mr and Mrs Cal Howard o£ Grand Junction recently tibserv- ed their 66th wedding anniversary.
