PAMTKf BLITHE TILL! 'fARKJ 2T Two New Cancer Treatments Said Highly Encouraging By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) — Two highly encouraging new successes in the treatment of some kinds of human cancer were reported today at the sixth International Cancer Congress. One i* a surgery-Pius-X-ray treatment of cancer of the breast, the most common form of the disease among women. The technique ie saving about half the patienis who get treatment- reasonably early, the congress was told. The second is a new drug giving —at least temporarily—normal life to a number of sufferers from several forms of cancer. The surgery-plus-x-ray method was described by Dr. Robert- Mc- Whi*er, radiologist and surgeon of the Royal Infirmary at Edinburgh, Scotland. This method, used since 1941, surgically removes only the infected breast but avoids cutting out a part of the chest wall, armpit and neck to remove lymph nodes to which the cancer probably already has spread. Daily X-Rays Those affected areas are treated by X-rays daily for three weeks, beginning 10 days after the surgery. This method thus avoids severe mutilation of the body and some complications from surgery or X-rays. McWhirter said 60 per cent of the women treated by the conservative combined method had survived for at least five years. A five-year survival is usually regarded as evidence of a cancer cure. He said 48 per cent had survived 10 years. All were women whose breast cancers were regarded at the time as suitable for operation. Even on cases considered unsuitable for help by extensive surgery, McWhirter said 32 per cent were alive five years after the combined treatment and 16 per cent. were living normal active lives after 10 years. • Good Results Encouraging success through use of the new drug thiotepa was described by Dr. Jeanne Bateman of George Washington University, Washington, D.C. She said a hign percentage of patients with cancer s of the ovaries, breasts and the worst form of brain cancer had achieved good results, enabling them to return to dering from the original site. The drug is not a cure, Dr. Bateman cautioned, but it has succeeded in keeping some patients on their feet and useful until nearly the end of their lives. 600 to Attend Mechanization Conference LITTLE ROCK (fl — About 600 agricultural and industrial leaders will register here this week for the eighth annual Beltwide Cotton Texas Democrats To Hold Runoff Primary Aug. 28 Gov.

Trial Begins For Ex-Banker Royall Reynolds CLAYTON. Ala. &l — Ex-banker Royall Reynolds, whose disappearance last March brought sleepy Clio, Ala., awake with a start, goes 01 trial today on embezzlement charges. Reynolds' disappearance tied up funds in the now-defunct unchart- ered Merchant's Money Exchange at the critical spring planting period. He returned two weeks later. An audit showed a 575,000 deficit in the bank's funds. A citizens' committee agreed to accept a settlement under which depositors would get back all except about 10 to 15 per cent of their money. Reynolds liquidated all his personal holdings and his relatives chipped in to make up all except about $9,000 of the deficit.
