NEW YORK, Dec. 29. "Don't put
too much faith in radium cures for can
cer," is the warning issued by the
American Society for the Control of
The Society issues the warning, it
is explained, for the purpose of offset
ting new hopes that may be raised
in sufferers from the disease, only to
lead to disappointment, such as has
been the case with many of the re
cent tuberculosis cures. The society
fears that the wide publicity given to
the radium cure for cancer will also
act in this manner.
The warning reads:
"The curative effects of radium are
practically limited today to superficial
cancer ' of the skin, to superficial
growths of mucous membrane which
are not true cancers, and to some deep
er lying tumors of bone, etc., which
are not very malignant. The problem
of the constitutional treatment of ad
vanced, inoperable cancer is still un
touched by any method yet devised or
likely to bo devised for the adminis
tering of radium. Even among the so
called radium cures, it still remains to
be determined in many cases whether
the favorable result is permanent or is
to be followed sooner or later by the
usual recurrence. The most competent
Burgeons do not dare to pronounce a
case cured until five years have elaps
ed after an apparently successful oper
ation. The same test must be applied
before we can finally determine the
real value of radium.
Get No Real Benefit.
Tt should be emphasized especially
that radium cannot at present exert
any permanent benefit on generalized
cancer, and since cancer, in a very
large proportion of cases, is widely
disseminated in the body early in the
course of the disease, theis entire
group of cases can expect no import
ant relief from radium. Another large
group of cancers is comparatively in
accessible ot the application of radium
so that the ultimate course of the dis
ease is not effected, although certain
portions of the tumor may be reduced
In size. Again, many forms of cancer,
although localized and accessible to
radium, grow very rapidly and resist
the curative action of this agent, so
that no real benefit can be expected
from Its use.
The best results of radium thereapy
can be secured only when compara
tively large amounts are available for
use and the present limited world's
supply of this metal places it out of
reach of the gTeat majority of patients.
It is to be feared that much harm may
result from undue reliance upon small
quantities of low grade radium when
other methods of treatment would be
Under the term "cancer" are com
monly grouped several diseases which
differ widely in nature, causation, and
courses, and in their response to da-
dium. It requires both skill and expe-
rienco to determine just what type of ;
cancer ore nas to deal with as well as
the advisability of using radium
Hence, it is extremely difficult to for
mulate an accurate statement of the;del has the shade on Roberts
irue position oi raaium inereapy, dui
It is quite clear that the exploitation
of this remedy as a cure of cancer is
in general is to be deprecated.

Richmond's coldest weather of this
season, came Saturday night when the
temperature went down to 11 degrees
above zero. The air was still and the
cold was not felt as much as the damp
part of the week. There was slightly
more than .2 inch of rainfall during
the week, mixed with snow, sleet and
hail. Saturday was the first clear day.
The fall of temperature since Christ
mas night-has been steady. The aver

With a team composed of three for
mer Earlham players and a member ef
the Purdue squad, Carthage last Sat
urday night wad unable to hold the Y.
M. C. A. basketball team and went
down in defeat by the score of 62 to
22. Lanniog as usual was the star of
the game, throwing ten field goals for
the association team. Parker at guard
played an excellent game. Ruby put up
the best, game for Carthage.
The attendance was only 150. much
smaller than it should have been, con
sidering the calibre of the teams. The
association team will play Centervill
Saturday night at the Y. M. C. A. and
hopes are entertained that the gallery
will be filled to capacity.

Unquestionably the event of the ev
ening was not the game between the
Carthage and Y. M. C. A. teams but
rather the curtain raiser between a
picked team from the Richmond hign
school Bquad and the high school team
The Whitewater boys were to have
played Webster as the entree to the
more substantial offering. The Webster
quintette failed to arrive so the Rich
mond lads were lined up in their place.
Bundy of Webster played with them.
Whitewater, although well known
over the county has never achieved
signal recognition in athletic circles.
The Richmond team lined up against
their opponents in a bored fashion, as
though they expected the game to be
a rather listless affair They were
mildly surprised when Wright shot a i
perfect goal three seconds after the
ball was put in play, but did not fully
realize what they were up against un
til they made a determined effort to
run up the score and failed to do so.
From this time on it was hammer and
tongs with Whitewater always a point
nr twn in tli lead. When the final
whistle closed the carnage, the score
was 17 to 19 in favor of Whitewater.
