Physic ians everywhere are issuing warnings to the public to prevent further in crease of this disease which has be ! come more of a menace than tuber culosis. National cancer week is be-1 Ing observed ‘in all the large cities throughout the country.. Twelve known cancer facts gather ed by an eminent physician are as follows: 1. If an early cancer is completely removed, it will not return. 2. There is a time when every can cer can be cured, for it exists in what is known to scientific men as “pre cancer.” 3. Cancer is first a lump or sore that can be felt with the fingers or seen with the eye, or gives certain de finate warning?. If we knew how to interpret these warnings, cancer 'could be cured. 4. Nine cases out of ten do not 'cause pain in the early stages. This is unfortunate. 5. Cancer startes as the result of long continued Irritation. If irrita-. tion is removed, cancer will not de velop. 6. Cancer develops at the edge of a scar—where the scar and normal tis sue meet. If the scar is removed, the cancer will not develop. 7. Certain definite symptoms pre cede every cancer, just as surely as wind clouds precede the rain storm. The time is coming when these symp toms will be heeded. 8. One hundred thousand people in the United States are annually afflict ed with some form of cancer. This is on the authority of the Public Heal th service. 9. One wonan In every eight, who Is over forty years of age, dies of can cer. Three times as many women as men die with cancer between thirty five and forty-five years of age. From that time on, the ratio is more near ly equal. 10. Every person over thirty-five years of age who is not sure about a lump, sore or unnatural discharge should consult a physician and demand a thorough examination. If the first doctor consulted cannot give a ration al opinion, ask for a consultation. 11. Procastination has caused the loss of many valuable lives. 12. Any doctor who tells you th he has a sure cure for cancer is a fraud. There is no such thing as a cancer serum or any remedy that will cure cancer by being injected into the veins or rubbed on the skin.

Cody Enterprise CODY, PARK COUNTY, WYOMING—GATEWAY TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK WOODRUFF THANKS VOTERS FOR SUPPORT IN CRISiNAL LETTER Hon. J. D. Woodruff of Shoshoni, who was recently honored by being elected to the state legislature by the largest vote given to any candidate for that position on either ticket, has his own way of saying things. His letter of thanks to the voters of Fre mont county was charaterlstlc and is being widely copied. “The usual custom, after a candi date has gone all the way through the griefs, hardships, uncertainties and humiliations of the hard fought politi cal campaign and finally comes out vic torloua, Is to forget his promises, and his friends, and tell them all to go to hell; that he earned all he got. and Is J j under no obligation to any one. His head swells up, and he imagines he is the big chief, but as I amprone to appreciate the good things that come my way in this life, I will deviate from the general rule and thank my many friends of Shoshoni, and of: Fremont County for the splendid sup port they gave me in the late elec-' tion. “Respectfully’ “J. D. WOODRUFF.” j CAUGHT WITH THE MOON ON, HOUSTON ARRESTED Fred Houston and Everett Rey nolds were arrested at the home of the former on Saturday night for hav ing some five gallons of moon-shine in their possession. They were having a party and it is said were Informed upon by an erstwhile friend of Hous ton’s whome he had offended earlier In the evening. It is said this makes five charges against Houston, two in the Federal court and three in the district court. On this account he has so far been unable to secure ball. G. R. VANDERHOF DIES AT BILLINGS HOSPITAL Grant R. Vanderhot died at the hos pital in Billings Sunday evening and was brought back to Cody for burial on Tuesday. The services were held at 3 o’clock in the Methodist church and he was Interred in Riverside cem etery. The deceased leaves a wife and six children, two of them twins seven months old. Mr. Vanderhot had been 111 for some time with cancer so his death was not unexpected. CLOSED SEASON 01 MOUNTAIN SHEEP UKELT NEXT TEAR Present Rate of Killing Will Soon Exterminate This High ly Prized Game Animal. Is Opinion Lander. —Bruce Nowlin, State Game and Fish Commissioner, has sent re quests to the forest supervisors of the state and the deputy game war dens, asking for a report from ea-.h j of theten game dlstr'cts in the s'a o, concerning the number of game an*.-1 mais in each county. This survey is being made to de-1 termlne the increase or decrease of elk, mountain sheep, deer, bear, moose and antelope and will be a factor in determining the formation of the, open season laws and the application of needed protection on animals which show a rapid decrease, endangering their extinction. There have been several intimations that mountain sheep will be placed under complete protection next year, and tor a period of years to stem the inevitable extinction of the animal at the present rate of killing every year by the hunters, although there has been no authentic word to this effect Moose and antelope are now pro tected by closed game laws and are slowly increasing under their protec tion. As regards bear, many people are under the erroneous Impression that they can be killed at any time under any circumstances. The season on hear is from September 15th to No vember 30th, Inclusive and there is no bag limit on this animal. Out side of these dates no bear may be killed lawfully unless there is abso lute ebldence of stock killing or prop erty destruction. AND THE PARK COUNTY ENTERPRISE As Seen From The WerMgon The prohibitionists tell us that pro i hibition is a success and an accom plihed fact, that America is dry and I getting drier; then, last week, up jumps Prohibition Commissioner Hay- I nes and asks the house sub-committee i on appropriation for $9,000,000 to on force prohibition and for 200 additinn lal field workers. The appropriation last year was about nine and a quarter million. It certainly costs a lot of money to enforce this popular law. I t U II In reply to a letter from Mrs. Cor inne Roosevelt Robinson, President i Harding, who is himself dry, admitted that the public attitude toward pro hibition had changed and that while he did not expect the eighteenth am endment to be repealed, the change probably would result In a slight lib eralization of the dry law. II II U f After the wet victory in New York, the Republican state chairman of New Jersey wrote President Harding and suggested that modification of the Volsted act might be an advisable pol 'icy for the Republican party. The President is quoted as reiterat ing what he had said to Mrs. Robinson as to the change in public sentiment and adding that he believed prohibi tion would always be a political issue FATHERS AND SONS HAVE JOLLY TIME “Boys will be boys” and all were boys together on Friday night when ' the Father and Son banquet took j place in the Methodist church base ment. Some wag was heard to remark that he didn’t know there were so many fathers and sons in the world and that if Cody fathers continued to ac quire sons it would soon be necessary to engage the Natural Corral to hold their annual banquet. There were few. if any, less than three hundred fathers and sons pres-' ent at the gathering and the big base ment was literally filled to overflowing as many took their meal standing against the wall. Mirth and jollity pervaded the at mosphere, and from a standpoint of sheer enjoyment and the good accom plished, there was never a more suc cessful event In the history of Park county. J. M. Schwoob, the toastmaster for the evening, was In unusually fine form and kept everybody In the best, of spirits with his sagacious and witty introductions and comments. The program of speeches which hail. been provided was of the very high est order and while much was expect ed of those who delivered them, the efforts put forth by the various ora tors seemed to outdo even themselves. It Is useless to attempt to comment on the many speeches that were made during the evening or try to compare them with regard to merit, for each seemed to be perfect in its place and of such distinctively high class that "comparisons are odorous.” Every angle of the life relationship between the boy and the father was handled in a masterly manner and every speech was greteed with hearty I I applause and unfeigned enthusiasm.] ! The speakers of the evening, on the fathers’ side of the house were: Prof. Ralph Hardin of the Cody high school, S. C. Parks, Paul Greever, Dr. D. R. Blaske of the local Episcopal church and Hon. Geo. W. Triplet of Billings, | district-attorney-elect for his judicial district in Montana. Responses to these from the boys’ 1 side were given by Emjl Ebert, Orin i Kepford and Ernest Newton, and each of them delivered his message with consummate grace and skill. The joy of the occasion was en , hanced by splendid music which was furnished by the local orchestra. ' The ladies who prepared and serv ,ed the elegant supper received and j of everyone present.

Sweet, governor-elect of Colorado, has reached slmillar conclu sions regarding the change of public sentiment and the Impossibility of en forcing the present prohibition law. In a speech before the Denver Optl-j mists Club last Thursady, he conced ed the possibility of the modification of the Volstead act In order to render it enforceable and to eliminate from it the many evils which he admitted had grown out of it I H 1 In reply to the President’s letters, the conclusion of observers and astute politicians all over the country as to the shifting of the public mind with reference to prohibition, Wayne B. Wheeler, generalissimo of the Anti- Saloon League, promptly yells back. "Tain’t so!” and declares that Ameri ca is yearning for prohibition stronger than ever—which makes us think what a formidable army would be turned loose on the country if all t’ high salaried commissioners and of fices, and agents, and stool-pigeons, and what not engaged in snooping, spying and framing up, should sudden ly find themselves jobless. WOMAN’S CLUB PLAN INTFRESTINC WAR I i The bridge party given by the Wo i man’s Club Tuesday afternoon was a' c success socially and financially. Each was in charge of a member 4 whose three guests were not members t o the club. There were players for thirteen I tables. At the conclusion of the after- - noon refreshments were served by the ’ entertainment committee consisting I of Mrs. R. I. Volckmer, Mrs. R. N. Wilson and Mrs. John F. Cook. i The new year books were distribut- • ed to the members present. Som< - very interesting papers will be given • before the club during the coming • months. In addition to these several featres have been planned that will be a departre from the salllllllllllll be a departure from theusual pro gram. The club is busy with plans for the : big community bazaar that will be given in the Temple theatre Decem ber 12th, with the co-operation of oth ‘ er organizations.

Hard work, on the part of the I firemen and citizens saved the front of the building and those on either side of it but the kitchen was entirely ’ ruined and everything will have to be , replaced if the proprietor concludes to reopen. ’ The building, which belongs to J. 1 M. Schwoob and the Park Loan an Trust Co., had a SI,OOO insurance on it The fixtures were covered by a $2,000 insurance. ’ The origin of the fire has not been " determined. It was a fortunate thing ■ that no wind was blowing, else it ' would have been impossible to have 1 prevented a disastrous fire as the 1 buildings in that block are mostly old and inflammable. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1922 WHITNEY STATUE OF BUFFALO BILL MAY COST $ 50,000 News comes from New York through Mary Jester Allen, a niece of th? late Col. Cody, that the designs for the Buffalo Bill statue being made by Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney are nearing completion and the cost is estimated to be from fifty to one hundred thousand dollars. Raising this amount of money will, be a great undertaking but Mrs. Allen believes it can be accomplished with proper publicity and the cooperation of i the Boy Scouts, Camp Fire girls and all persons interested in providing a suitable memorial for the Colonel. The model is to be on exhibition at | the Wildenstein Gallery, 647 Fifth Av enue, New York City, during January, and all Wyoming folk in the East arej to be given a private view before it is shown to the public. —■ ■ i ♦ BLIZZARDS DON’T WORRY FOLKS ON BALD RIDGE | Bert Marvin from Sunlight Basin stopped on his way out at A.

Says Uncle John Myers Who Witnessed the Trag edy at Court-House An odor which made all the booze hounds prick up their ears and look at each other Inquiringly was wafted down Main street from the court house on Thursday when the confis cated liquor stored in the vault was finally destroyed in the presence of Judge Metz and other witnesses to the tragedy. It was I n kegs, jugs and bottles, of many brands a n d vintages, all repre senting the hopes of hard-working, In dustrious boot-leggers whose plans had missed fire somehow. Some of it seemed to be over-ripe, according to Uncle John Meyers who turned pal | when he tried to tell the Enterprise reporter what the home product smell ed like after standing several months, while other exhibits were of an ex plosive nature, going off with a pop. or hissing In a fashion not common to hard liquor of first quality. The kegs a n d jugs were smashed with an ax between the jail and the court-house and the botlles broken, against the building ajs they were checked off. The contents formed a lake which, while not deep enough to swim in, would have been ankle deep to wade In, according to Uncle John, who further stated that he had no de sire to do so on account of the afore said odor. The tally was correct, of course, as was to be expected; not a sinK le bot ’ tie, or drop, was missing, so those who believed that T. P. Cullen furnished the Canadian whiskey with which the Federal prohibition officer put on his party can see how wrong they were!

ISSUED EVERY WEDNESDAY “LIBERALS" CLAIM” CONTROL OF HOOSE Mundell's Successor Wet-Wilt Strike First Blow At Volstead Act-Believe Favorable Legislation Sure Washington, Nov. 21.—The pronoun ced increase in the '‘wet" membership , ot the Natlonatl House of Representa tives, as a result of Tuesday’s ele-- tlon, render highly probable the paa- I sage of liberal legislation In tho next session of Congress that will strike the first blow at the more stringent | provisions ot the Volstead Act, ac cording to an analysis of the situation as given out by the Association Ag ' alnst the Prohibition Amendment from its headquarters here recently. i Although sanguine o fmaterial gains j at the tolls this year, the Association I had hitherto made no claims that ths ; point would be reached where positive headway could be made in legislative modifications looking to the legalix- I ing of the manufacture and sale of wine and beer. I With the election returns practi cally all in, however. G. C. Hinckley, | national secretary of the organization, claimed that the gain of eighty "lib eral” votes gives actual control of the House to the modifications, and de clared the outlook extremely favor able for the carrying out of the prelim inary program of hts organization at the coming session. Involved in this view is a consider | ation of the change of headships ot powerful committees in the House. The defeat of Andrew J. Volstead ot Minnesota removes the author of the objectionable prohibition enforcement j act from the chairmanship of the House Judiciary Committee, giving the place over to Congressman George H. Graham of Pennsylvania, an avow ed “wet" Very Important also from the stand point of the organization. Mr. Hinck ley said, is the change that will be I made m other phases of House control, j The passing of Mondell leaves the ma jority leadership on the ivaoersnip on the floor either to Representative Nick Longworth of ! Ohm or Representative Jim Mann ot . Illinois, both re-elected, and both har ing been endorsed by the Association because of their attitude on the pro hibitlon Issue. “These are among the indirect changes brought about in favor of liberal legislation by the election re sults, in addition to the obvious In crease in the wet strength through the election of many new liberal candi dates,” said Mr. Hinckley, “The cap ture of the chairmanship of the Judi ciary Committee Is an especially grat -1 ifying victory under the circumstanc | es, in that the apostle of fanatical pro hibition measures was overthrown !■ the process. “The fact that the House leadership will be In the hands of a liberal mem ber is also a factor of the utmost sig nificance, and one that may be ex pected to influence materially the vote I on any future liberal legislation that ! may be introduced. “On all prohibition legislation up i to date, a large number of the House members withheld their votes on im i portant occasions. ( When the Vol stead Act was passed over Wilson’s ' veto, on October 27, 1919, the vote was 175 for, 55 against, and 198 not voting. It is safe to say that many of i those not voting then were overawed -by the power of the organized drys as ’ against the political weakness of the j unorganized wets. “The result of the recent elections • has reversed this situation, and doubt > less will have its effect in reversing the position of the Inert members who have hitherto refrained from voting, ‘ but who will now be encouraged to 1 take a positive stand in agreement with their inherent convictions In support of a modification of the pres- i ent drastic prohibition laws. “It Is in this way, also, that the coming majority leadership in the House will work in our behalf by in fluencing the Inert vote of the major ity membership. The wets of the mi nority are already largely in the open and will continue their support.” ! The Association has entered a vig orous denial to the statement attrib uted to Wayne B. Wheeler ot the Anti-Saloon League, to the effect that Pomerene’s defeat in Ohio was due to his wet leanings. Advices from its Ohio representatives, officers of the Association said, are to the effect that Warren 8. Stone, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, flooded the state with over one hundred thousand letters asking railroad men to knife Pomerene on account of his record oa railroad legislation and that this was the factor which turned the scale against him.
