County cancer Crusade a success The conclusion of -a successful Fayette County Cancer Crusade has assured that the local cancer control , program will continue', with new and increased strength. The 1962 Crusade Chairman, Mrs. Harold Boulton of Fayette, said that final reports constitute a "vote of public confidence in our fight against cancer". She added, "The response to the A. C. S. crusade here and elsewhere in the United States shows that Americans everywhere want to put a speedy end to this disease which kills over 270,000 persons each year. It shows too that the society's message of hope in the fight against cancer is hitting home". Mrs. Boulton called attention to the many Fayette county residents who were reached with life-saving information about cancer this year. This is a tribute, she added, to the volunteers who conducted the educational and fund-raising drive, people who receive the facts about cancer and act upon them will not be among the 87,000 Americans who will die of the disease this year," she said. Volunteers in Fayette, working under the direction of Mrs. Harry Randall took life-saving literature to local residents and collected a tJtal of $491.75. Mrs. Boulton, in behalf of the Unit, expressed her appreciation to these volunteers for their "lieart- wa-ming response to the Crusade." and offered her "gratitude to' the hardworking, local citizens whose unstinting effort made this Crusade successful." The total collected in the countywide drive was $4302.85. Kid's May planned; more Rides scheduled lor fair *Bv E. T. Alcorn The tradition^ "Kids Day" will be moved from' Friday *tir Tuesday in 1962 to comply with many requests. As in the past, children of school age will be admitted free at the gate until 6 p. rn., and also free to the afternoon grandstand show. Jerry Smith, "Iowa's Favorite Cowboy" will headline the afternoon grandstand show, and will be supported by several acts selected especially for their appeal to children. Friday afternoon will be designated as "Carnival Day". Most rides will be reduced to 10 cents from noon until six p. m. One of the disappointments of the 1961 fair was the small number of rides on the midway. Booking of the Bob Hammond Shows for the 1962 fair will remedy this situation.
