Some Heartening News
NEW YORK. Jan. 14 (AP).
—The New Year brings some
heartening and heartbreak
ing—news in the great battle
The American Cancer Sod-'
ety lists these pointe on the
brighter side of the picture:
More than million Amer
icans alive todajj have been
cured of cancer.
One cancer patient out of
every three is now being saved.
A few years ago the rate was
only one In four.
About 170,000 Americans will
be saved from cancer this year.
Death rates from most forms
of the disease have been level
ed off and in some cases re
Research on the dread mal
ady is being undertaken on
the greatest and costliest scale
In medical history. Virtually
every branch of modem science
But there’s still a dark side
to the picture, too:
The steady rise in the na
tional cancer death rate con
tinues. largely because of a
rapid rise in lung cancer. Last
year this killed 37,000 persons,
more than five times the num
ber 20 years previously.
This year, about 783,000
Americans will be under medi
cal care for cancer. Some 510,-
new cases will be diagnosced
for the first time. Some 270.-
000 of those afflicted will die.
One out of every six afflict
ed could have been saved had
the disease been diagnosed in
time. This means about 85,000
These figures on cancer are
presented in a 1961 booklet
issued by the Cancer Society, a
voluntary organization dedi
cated to conquering the disease
through research, education

The booklet reiterated the
society’s contention that cigar
ette smoking is the major
cause of the growing rise in
lung cancer —a view which
has not found unanimous ac
ceptance among medical scien
tists and tobacco Industry
But the society said:
“It is estimated that the
elimination of the cigarette
habit would eventually reduce
[lung cancer deaths to about
one-quarter its present level."
The organization tabbed im
munology as offering cancer
scientists “one of their most
exciting leads to possible cancer
control." It added: “If a na

(AP). Theodore C. (Ted)
Link, crime reporter for the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, goes
on trial Monday on a first
degree murder charge in the
July 11 slaying of a farm hand
he suspected of setting fire to
the Link summer home.
Circuit Judge Joseph T. Tate
has set aside three days for the
trial, brought here on a change
of venue. Clarence W. Calvin,
35, employed on a part-time
basis by the 55-year-old news
man, was shot to death after
Mr. Link found him digging in
the ruins of the farm home
near St. Albans In adjoining
Franklin County. The house
had burned three days earlier.
Mr. Link, who pleaded in
nocent and has been free under
125,000 bond, says he killed
Mr. Calvin In self-defense when
the farm hand advanced on him
with a switch-blade knife and
a three-pronged hoe. Mr. Calvin
was shot twice with a shotgun
and three times with a revolver.
