Tells New Technique IR Medical Treatment Of External Cancers CHICAGO — CAP> — A new tech- _n*autJte Jt8dium.flt X-r*y treatments for external cancers was announced today in th« i Journal of the Arheri- rti Tha Innovation, called the "method of concentration." Involves not only the amount of irradiation but also the area. Dr. Max Cutler of Chicago, who originated the technique, reported Ifc bad a more pronounced effect on certain resistant forms of cancer of tto mouth, pharynx and larynx than •HfooiU now in use. He dtoeovered some cancers, which failed to respond to other forms of ejrttmal irradiation, reduced in siae rapidly and in many instances disappeared completely under the new method. • -• The eaaoan more resistant to radium treatment require a larger daily tfoat of the rays and a shorter total treatment, 12 days or leas, Dr. Butler learned. He found also more powerful radium treatments could be given by 'gradually decreasing the diameter or tha exposed area—eomatihng like fccuataf a spotlight first to make a targe round area and then reducing it slowly to a tiny spot. ' . The reason (or this reduction is that tha core of a cancer is the most resistant to treatment, but if the wheat area Is exposed enough to destroy the core, there la a danger of • t -img 4 *'g healthy tissue at the, outer edge of the cancer. Dr. Cutler emphasised the technique could not be regarded as perfect jet, but that further use by other clans would be necessary toe* Of M e?

Retail Trade Up 35% Over One Year Ago On Sales Tax Basis SPRINGFIELD. ILL. — <AP> — Finance Director George B. McKib- bln said yesterday that state sales tax collections indicated that, retail sales during September increased 35 per cent over the same month a year ago. The finance director reported the lieavy increase In retail sales when ho announced that October collections of the two per cent sales tax, which reflected sales made in September, totaled $7.«2>.882.42, compared with 17.849,172 collected In October. 1940. when the tax was levied at the rate of three per cent. The increase in retail sales, was attributed to heavy buying in advance of the new federal commodities .tax which became effective Oct. 1, enlarged defense spending and improved tax collecting methods in the finance department. "Comparing current collections of retailers' occupational tax In October, reflecting September sales, and allowing for the change In rate from three to two per cent, the amount of sales taxed increased almost 35 per cent over a year ago."

The commissioners, he said, could I do either of two things: Draw definite line on participation by former professionals, or adopt a plan offered by Dumont calling for two national championships—one for army camps and the other for Industrial, fraternal and home town teams.
