SECOND PAYMENT FOR
EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA
Tobacco Growers To Get Christmas
Money-New Contracts Come in
With a serond payment to members
completed in the South Carolina belt
and arrangements being made for a
second payment in Eastern North
Carolina early in December on all to
bacco delivered before December first,
the Tobacco Growers' Co-operative
Association is expecting to largely in
crease its membership in these belts
before the season is over. Without
any special effort on the part of the
Association new contracts are reach
* ing Raleigh daily from men "who
waitedl to see" and arc again thor
oughly disgusted wvith the system.
Insistent demands for legal action
against contract violators continue to
reach Raleigh headquarters, especial
ly from local units of the Association.'
In response to this dlemandI the legal
department last week filed 54 more
suits against members in 21 counties
of North Carolna involving dlamages
of more th~an $50,000. Some of the
~'first suits filed have been settled out
of court wvhile other men are making
settlements without waiting to be
haled into court.
Arrangements have been made to
have warehousenmen receive money
for damages and f' rward it to
Raleigh where the legal decpartment:
will decidle whether to accept or reject
such settlements. Each case is being
considleredl on its merits andl, while
the attorneys are accepting a numb~er
6 of such proffered settlemients,, they
* state that in other cases they are re-j
jecting offers to settle wvhere the in
terests of the association show that a
law suit would be better policy.

CONTROL OF CANCER,
NATIONAL CANCER WEEK
(By Frank Billings, Sc. D., M. D.)
From the priest-physician of an
cient times ,the medical profession
inherited an still retains the high
ideals and altruism of the priest-hood.
This idealism is expressed in the
avowed main purpose of physicians
"to relieve suffering and prolong life.'
Guided by this idealism modern medi
cine is the accomplishment of the
medical profession, sanitarians and
other scientists. With the necessary

the death rate among infants and chil
dren due to diarrhoeal and other di
seases, has fallen in many communi
ties to a fraction of the former mor
tality. All this has been accomplished
by the unceasing efforts "f physicians
and public health workers in educat
ing the public and i nthe rational ap
plication of reliable methods of di
sease prevention, and in the utiliza
tion of scientific means of treatment.
Today physicians are fighting an
other dreadful plague,-Cancer. This
disease has no terrors for the young
for the death toll of this disease is not
taken until mcid-life. After the age
of forty Cancer becomes one of the
most potent agencies of the A ngel of
D)eath. Under the efficient leadership
of the A mcerican Society for the Con
trol of Cancer, the mcedical profession
has anncounced that the week of No
vembcler 1 2 to 18 is to be a na;tionf
wide ";Cncer- Week" devoted to the
attempt to ethicate the people to re'
cogncize the early sympltoms otf Cancecr,
in order that its v ictimis mayc obitai n
pro~mplt assista nce andt chleek the
trouble in its beginhing when a euro
can b~e effeted. WVhen the disease is
tar advanced, it is always fatal; there
is No ,ATEC cure for Cancer. In the
ECA RI'X recognition of Cancer lies the
hope of cure!
