Pog* Six THE LOGAN DAILY NEWS—LOGAN, OHIO Saturday, April 13, 1946 Drive for Funds to Fight Cancer Starts Monday in County Logan Business Women's Club Backs Appeal Mrs. R. R. Lanning Is Named Chairman Of Local Campaign With a goal of $1,035, a campaign to raise funds for the nationwide fight against cancer will be started Monday in Hocking County. The local drive of the Hocking County Division of the American Cancer Society is being sponsored by the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Logan. Mrs. Raymond R. Lanning, president of the club, is county chairman and Mrs. George Wonn is treasurer. Mrs. Lanning said today that an important cancer program will be broadcast on the Truth or Consequences radio program tonight of the entire National Broadcasting Company network from 8:30 to 9 o’clock. Next Friday night the Mutual Broadcasting Company will carry a giant one-hour show from Hollywood, starring Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope. The program will start at 11:30 o’clock. These programs, Mrs. Lanning pointed out, are being presented to focus the attention of the nation on the menace of cancer. The disease, she said, is now causing one death out of every eight in the United States. This means that 17 million men, women and children are now living in America are destined to die of cancer unless we do something about it, she added. The goal of the nationwide drive is 12 million dollars. Ohio’s share is $175,000. It is estimated that, on the basis of present knowledge, from 30 to 50 percent of all cancer can be cured through early recognition and effective treatment, Mrs. Lanning said. The American Cancer Society is pressing a comprehensive and relentless attack against cancer on all fronts—through education, adequate treatment and research. With the aid of the National Research Council, it began the organization of a far-reaching program of cancer research. This year it plans not only to greatly increase its research but to increase its facilities for the treatment of cancer patients. Solicitation for Hocking County’s share of the campaign will start next week. Mayor’s Proclamation WHEREAS, the people of this city have demonstrated upon many occasions their willingness to aid their fellow-man; and WHEREAS, there is a great need for a public awareness of the ravages of cancer which will claim the lives of many persons in this city before the year’s end; and WHEREAS, The American Cancer Society have performed a great service in their fight to control cancer; and WHEREAS, the President of the United States and the Governor of the State of Ohio have urged the fullest cooperation with this campaign against cancer; NOW, THEREFORE, I, W. Denzil Weltner, as mayor of the City of Logan do hereby designate the month of April 1946 as CANCER CONTROL MONTH AND, commend to all citizens of Logan the invitation of the American Cancer Society to enlist in their campaign during this month and to participate whole-heartedly with this work during the coming year.
