"This makes sense because we are now over pivxlucing when we do not need it. This leads to a Technique developed For diagnosing cancer A State University of Iowa scientist has developed a technique that shows promise of aiding in the diagnosis of cancer of the lymph nodes, which will cause rome 15,000 deaths in the nation this year. Dr. Harry W. Fischer, associate professor of radiology in the SUI college of medicine, believes the technique — called lympho- graphy — will help in determining how and when these nodes are involved in the spread of cancer. Lymph is a colorless fluid which travels through the body in its own set cf lymph vessels. The lymph nodes are rounded masses of tissue which occur along the course of the lymph vessels. They are of importance in trapping and halting or modifying the spread of cancer cells which have broken loose from the main tumor. Early diagnosis of cancer offers the best hope of treatment, but detection of malignant growths of the lymph nodes has been stymied because they are as transparent to x-rays as a pane of glass is to ordinary light. But Dr. Fischer has found that when a special contrast liquid is injected through the lymph vessels of the leg, structures deep in the pelvis, including any ab- normalties such as cancer, become visible on x-ray film. Dr. Fischer chose to test his pew technique on the pelvite area because of the high incidence of tumors in this area of the body and because of the known tendency of these tumors to spread to pelvic lymph nodes. The SUI scientist's research is one of the many projects at the SUI Medical Center that are supported with funds from the American Cancer Society and its Iowa Division. , a-ops without regard to soil Vss- es ••TI,;*. ; - • . • i c "" h( s .^T " » V, ""„ ' 1L ""'I th '! washt> ? away from Iowa builds no homes, roads, schools, or churches.

What is it that has caused unrest in China? One of the principle causes is lack of food brought about in large measure by the destruction of soil resources. The Yellow River of China so named Because of the farm eroded soil it carries to the sea gives mute evidence as to one of the basic tioubles in China — that is soil erosion. The veterinary diagnostic lab- tratory at Iowa State university, in the first quarter of lilfil, has reported more than twice as many hog cholera diagnosis as it did during the same months last year. Total numbers of animals brought to the laboratory cannot reflect the numbers of infected animals in the state accurately, says Extension Veterinarian Maynard Spear of Iowa State university. However, an increase in numbers of cases of any disease at the laboratory r:ften indicates a trend. There is no doubt that hog cholera infection is increasing in Iowa. lowans concerned about the welfare of the swine industry met in March at the call of Bernard Collins, president of the Iowa Swine Producers association to launch a program to eradicate cholera. lowans have never tried to eradicate this disease. They have been content to piotect their herds only by vaccination. Many don't even vaccinate. Collins re- ported the disease is costing lowans an estimated Sii million a year. Canada has eradicated the disease at a cost of only $3 million, including the cost of en- demnities for hogs slaughtered as carriers or victims of cholera. At least 12 foreign countries now embargo Iowa pork to avoid the risk of cholera in their own clean herds. Tiie picture above shows Dr. Spear, Iowa State university extension veterinarian, appointed at the March meeting as chairman of educational work for the Iowa cholera eradication committee: Marion Steddom of Gran, ger, chairman of the newly formed stale cholera eradication committee, and Dr. Grant Blake of Des Moines, in charge of United States Department of Agriculture's disease eradication program and secretary of the committee. They are pointing to tne list of nine steps the committee declared essential for hr>£ cholera eradication. ~ These steps are: Discontinue the use of fully virulent virus; ORDER YOUR e & Rock FROM Leland Benter RANDALIA, IOWA Phone 428 - 2241 Corrugated pipe keeps Rodents out of tile For those who- are tiling this year and getting ACP payments, there must be 1C feet of corrugated steel pipe at the end of each outlet. This pipe must be covered at the outlet end with a trap to prevent back water from entering the tile drain. Piobably the most important p_int in covering the end of the outlet is to prevent rodents such as muskrats from entering the tile and plugging it up. This plugging has become more com iron in recent years, because large areas where the muskrats formally lived have been tiled out so they are now migrating into the smaller streams of water. Although the ACP has res- sponsibility to layout contouring and stripcropping where ACP payments are made, their staff is so overloaded with the signup on corn allotments that they may not be able lo do all the layout. Therefore, just call the Soil Conservation District office in West Union and they will lay it out.
