THE TO WN CRIER Let's Be Honest, Harrv Had Cancer BY MARK BELTAIKE Certainly no tribute is paid to the memory of a swell guy, Harry Heilmann, by some of the pussy-footing reporting, both via radio and newspaper, of the cause of his death. It was CANCER, and no soft-voiced references to "a lingering illness" can change the root of his suffering. While he was alive, naturally, simple good taste forbade any reference that might have increased hi3 own mental anguish. But now that Harry Heilmann has been murdered by one of modern mankind's deadliest enemies, it seems to me that the fcst tribute to him is to rally any forces that might help stop the slaughter. Perhaps a contribution to the Amer- . M ican Cancer Society would be the best way of 1 saying: "Thanks, Harry, for all the enjoyment r v f J you gave us. I No danger was ever avoided by nno'c y-crtA in th t5nd 'n fnfmv was 0 a a.cai - " - - - - - - - - - 3 i j : : TM1 ever vamuisnea dv aerrwng ius u v admit that I feel a special bitterness toward 1-ke Ben Hog an, cancer.

Memo to various national radio and TV shows designed to congratulate Detroit on its 250th birthday: We appreciate j-our kind intentions, but please don't insult our intelligence by the obviously preplanned answers to questions about Detroit given by contestants on quiz shows supposedly on the level. They don't fool anybody, make your show and your product look ridiculous. o Ed Warner report that 12 German police officers, taking the course in police administration at Michigan State College, went on the Safety patrol picnic of the Lansing Safety Council at Lake Lansing amusement park. They were offered a ride on the roller coaster. Ten accepted. After the first trip, the men were asked if they'd like another whirl. One man stood up dazedly, waved his hands, and shrieked: -Nein, nein!" o FREE PRESS GIFT of a Michigan State flag to the 16Sth Field Artillery, with headquarters in Japan, reminded Mrs. John Shumaker of Ann Arbor of a similar donation. You'll remember that Cpl. Arnold Manko wrote the stale asking for such a banner, was told that Michigan couldn't possibly afford such a costly expenditure. Seems that Mrs. Shumaker has a brother. Pvt. William Hein, of the ISOth Infantry Regiment of the 45th Division, who made the same request some time ago of Secretary of State Fred Alger. He dug into his own pocket for the gift of a flag, without fuss or feathers. o COUNTY CLERK Ed Branigm was amazed when he was told that Clerk Frank Dittmer. usually first man in the office every day and still spry as a field of crickets, i3 due to retire on July 24 at the age of 70. Branigin checked the records, saw that his birth date was listed as 1S91. "That would make you only 60," he said. "What's this about 70 ?" Dittmer shuffled his feet, admitted that back about 1933 he cut 10 years off his age to make it easier to get a job. ACROSS L Hiring brod smooth mlit . Shoot S.

One of the last times he visited Briggs Stadium radio booth he was photographed with Ty Tyson, who was broadcasting when Heilmann was banging base hits.
