Cancer In Women Studied
Further studies of a new method for detecting uterine cancer,
the second most deadly form of cancer in women, will be conducted
in eight communities throughout the country, Leonard A. Scheele,
Surgeon General of the Public Health Service, U. S. Department of
Health, Education, and Welfare, announced recently.
The technique, involving examination of cells which have been
shed by the uterus, received its preliminary evaluation on a mass
basis in studies conducted in Memphis, Tennessee, during the past
‘These additional pilot projects,” said the Surgeon General, “re
present positive steps toward the ultimate goal of totally eliminating
this form of cancer which so frequently and tragically attacks women
in their early years of maturity.”'
The cell examination test is a relatively simple diagnostic pro
cedure. A physician or nurse can obtain a specimen of fluid from the
vaginal vault both quickly and painlessly. The presence or absence
of cancer cells in the specimen can be tentatively established through
microscopic examination, and where cancer cells are found present,
further study of biopsy is made to establish a firm diagnosis.
The Memphis study indicated that uterine cancer could be diag
nosed in its early stages and if the tests were applied universally, it
would probably be responsible for the almost total eradication of the
disorder. In Memphis the tests produced a case-finding rate forty
times that observed in the community prior to establishment of the
project. In the first seventy thousand women tested, 88.3 percent of
the early, highly curable cases of uterine cancer (cancer of the neck
of the womb) discovered by this method had not been previously
diagnosed nor suspected by the individual.
The project locations thus far chosen for further evaluation of
the test are: Louisville, Kentucky; Madison, Wisconsin; Detroit,
Michigan; Charlotte, North Carolina; San Diego, California; Provi
dence, Rhode Island; Columbus, Ohio; and Washington, D. C. These
programs will be activated as soon as arrangements are completed
with sponsoring or cooperating local health and medical agencies.
Each project is expected to run for about three years. In some in
stances the National Cancer Institute will participate by staffing and
equipping local clinics and laboratories; in others, funds will be made
available through grants to support work which will be carried out
entirely under local auspices.
This opportunity for rapid, full evaluation of the cell examination
test was made possible by Congress’ special allocation of $500,000 for
this purpose, included in the 1956 budget of the National Cancer In
Details concerning the current status of each project are avail

From Around Nebraska
Lexington joined with its neighboring town of Cozad last week
to buy more pork and bring the pork-eating crown to Nebraska.
But the effort was to no avail for the competitor, Audubon, Iowa,
won by a substantial margin.
Nevertheless, Cozad went all out and everyone concerned had
a good time.
The Dawson County Herald, published at Lexington, related
that residents of that town turned out enmass to help Cozad.
Evidently the food store business was good at Cozad last week
but the Lexington men got it in the neck for their big-heartedness.
An ad in the Herald, inserted by the Cozad bank offered a
free picnic ham to anyone over 18 years of age who just stepped
into the Cozad bank Numerous other stunts were tried to swell
the amount of pork which could be disposed of in Cozad during
• * *
But at Curtis, Nebraska there wasn’t the pork eating en
thusiasm in evidence. A survey of housewives, run by the Curtis
Enterprise revealed that the predominating preference was beef.
Most of the housewives said their family preferred the beef and
they were in accord with the slogan on the new license plates
that Nebraska is the “Beef State”. The housewives also told the
newspaper that the “Eat More Pork” effort hadn’t stepped up
their meat eating of either kind of meat and that they already
ate all of the meat they wanted or felt they could afford.

One Co-Operative at Aurora showed a profit of $70,000 for
1955. Another Co-Operative at Hampton made nearly $34,000
and another at Giltner exceeded $50,000. The Co-Operatives have
tbeen having their annual meetings at which time their profits
are made public.
At Ogallala, the Junior Chamber of Commerce held a “Boss
Night” dinner last evening (Wednesday) at which time the old
boys who do the worrying and pay the bills for the other fellows’
mistakes were feted. Each Junior Chamber member acted as a
host to his boss and there was an appropriate program to make
everyone feel right at home. The 1956 Boss of the year was to be
named, also, the Keith County News revealed.
