Our goal now is to have the books printed and ready sometime in September. We were on schedule for a June and July delivery date. Incidentally, our attorney is litigating with the typeset- ting machine company to see if they won't help us with the resetting of the faded type.

We contend- they should have told us when they installed the machine or have it included in their operation and instruction manuals. XXXX Don't know whether you have noticed it or not, but the four-way stop at the old bank corner doesn't seem to be sufficient to allow for pedes- trian traffic and parking and backing from the curb. With today's modern auto- mobiles, a driver can drive down Main Street, touch base lightly with the stop sign, and be going 25 or 30 miles an hour again within 100 feet. This doesn't give" the poor pedestrian time to hardly make up his mind whether he can make it or not. A backing driver can see a clear street behind him one United States UN Ambass- ador Andrew Young is more totally than ever demonstra. ting that he is too prejudiced and small for such an un- usual job and should be re- moved from that office. He's beginning to sound like a broken record. Mr. Young is demon- strating selfishness and has a chip on his shoulder. There are more people in the world than just blacks, and if he is going to be constantly pre- occupied with his own race, then he's not big enough for the job. He should ask himself, "Am l the Ambassador of the black race to the United Nations, or am I the United States Ambassador to the United Nations?" 'Nuf said.

XXXX ther or not the fears are legitimate, the doctor is at fault, although he is not wilfully so. In a recent case of breast cancer, the patient had gone through a cancer clinic after noting a series of "minor" lumps periodically. As a result, mammograms followed at specific inter- vals. During the screening and observation period, about six months prior to a radical mastectomy, a physician not connected with the program, found nothing "suspicious". He felt the patient was un- duly concerned since her mother had a history of breast cancer. Around four weeks prior to this same patient's breast surgery, an- other general practitioner gave the patient a clean bill of health. Nonetheless, the woman could detect the lumps easily so she went to her health clinic for examinatin. When the staff there found the danger symptoms, the patient was pre-admitted to a hospital after confu-ma. tion by the third physician and surgeon who diag- nosed the mass of "cancer" until proven otherwise.

El" i Cake Mix following week, the radical mastectomy was done after numerous tests confirmed the malignancy. The theory that a woman (or man) knows his or her own body better than anyone else held true in this case. Much credit goes to con- scientious staff members of the Payne County Health Department who are often extremely helpful in such in- stances such as breast examinations. Again, perhaps, this is due to the fact that another woman may observe abnormality because of her personal familiarity with both normal and abnormal structures of her own body. The Cancer Answerline explains their view on two controversial issues-- Laetrile and Mammograms. First in regard to the drug laetrile they say: ANSWERIine: After care. ful study of the literature and other information available to it, the American Cancer Society has found no evi- dence that treatment with Laetrile results in any objective benefit in the treat.

The ACS notes EIW that there are almost 2,000,000 Americans alive :;:.":"*-"::: ..... today cured of cancer -- and i I they would not be if they had ::: received an unproven ...... : remedy rather than treat- ment scientifically tested WE and known to be effective. Secondly a woman in her EI 40's writes: "I have a large bosom and i while I have been trying to do breast self-examini- ..,.. . tion for cancer, I don't be- lieve that I am thorough enough. Should I have  mammography?" ANSWERIine: Mammo- "grams, x-rays of the breast, should be taken at a phy- sician's dision for women in your age group depend. ing on whether or not therf is an indication of higher "-> .... than normal risk factors. While large breasts are cer- IIm_llllll tainly not risk factors, they lUll may indeed be difficult to ::. examine for lumps and for that reason your physician may order mammograms. An encouraging note ac- cording to this same source says it is NOT true that the cancer death rate has in- creased drastically, the mis- !][ ]!I! I !ii !iii i! : leading fact was that in 1975 it seemed that the nation's cancer mortality figures had increased enormously. quote-- "However, when a final analysis of the com- plete year was done an ac- tual decline of .7 percent was clearly seen. It might interest you to know that the i cancer death rate would be going down very dra- matically were it not for the fact that the lung cancer death rate for both American men and women is sky- El rocketing." -: :!ii i Other intere sting notes are that many teenagers do not smoke although most of them think of their genera- tion as smokers according to ANSWERline. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. , Fortunately, because it is i easily seen, it is usually i! treated in an early stage and is therefore highly cure. "---J able.

The board agreed to check out the problem and act accord. ingly. Harland Wells talked in- formally concerning the pro- blems of annexation. He also offered his services in behalf of any town project in which he might be able to help. He added that most of the time it is a matter of contact. ing the right persons and then to present the needs to these and elected officials frequently. One particular reference was made to Ozar. ka's obtaining a federal grant on the water tower pro- ject. The council had receiv- ed a letter stating that the project is finally ready to go.
