It is true with calmer. We still l:ave it with us, and the fight must contirme. "Better health through education" should be our slogan. The cost of living has increas- ed, taxes are higher and demands for assistance have multiplied, but the need still exists. One Iowan dies every two and one- half hours from caneer, and half of these victims could have been been saved, had they known and followed the principle "Fight can- cer with knowledge; Early can- cer is curable'. Cancer does not respect age, ancestry or income--. it is everyone's, enemy. If you believe that health pres- ervation is a part of our supreme war effort, support the cancer con- trol program. Cancer is still the second cause of death in our coun- try. If yon can't attend the Parent Teachers Program at the com- ~nunity ~uilding Thursday even- ing, April 16, and wish to con- tribt~te to the cause, leave contri- butions with or send to Mrs. J. S.
