EDITOR It Is Up To You Sometime during April -- Cancer Control Month- you wll be asked some pertinent questions about varmer ar, d given the answers to ,them by vlmeers of the American Can- cer Society who will be calling on you. It is not necessary that you know the answers to all the questions: Are we getting anywhere a, gain cancer? What si, gns or symptons may mean cancer? Which type of carmer is irmreasing most rapidly? W,hat type of cancer kills most Americans? What can you do to protect yourself aainst cancer? But you should know cancer's seven dan- ger signals and visit your doctor if any one of them should persist mere than two weeks. Cancer usually starts quietly and spreads without pain. In the beginning, a danger sigal may seem very unimportant to you, 'but it could be most important to your Fife. It is important for you to know that 75 per cent of th 76,000 men and women who will develop cancer of the colon and rectum this year could be saved by ea,riy diagnosis 'and prompt treatment. The ,best protectio against death from this disease is a simple proctoseopie examination once a year. Cancer of the lung is the most rapidly mounting cause of dealh from cancer. What can you do about R? Stop smoking cigar- ettes if you e already a smoker, and if you do not smoke, don't start. The American Can- cer Society says that if no one smoked cig- arettes a great majority of tung cancers would be prevented. The American Cancer Society is speaking in the interest of all of us when t urges every adult to have an armual ,health checkup. Many cancers discovered duVmg an annual health checkup can be cured. As for the question: Are we getting any- where agaist cancer? The answer is "yes". More than 1,200,000 men, women and chil- dren are alive today, cured of cancer. Im- provements in surgery, radi'ation, use of drugs, new techmques of dignoss, better facilities for treatment, the public's concern about cancer and action on that concern, are saving the fives of tens of thousands of Americans anmally, who would have died if they had had the sease less than a gen- exaion ago. Costly research has accomplished much of this, And this is one of the reasons why you Should suppor the American Cancer Society's programs of resea,rch, educaon and service. We urge you to give generously to the April Cancer Crusade. i Conservation News 40 Years Ago 1924 The Commercial Club is launching .a civic improvemenl campaign this spring.

In fact, his vote on a decision counts ,only as one, just the sme as the votes of the other eight justices. In ceremonies, .he leads when the justices walk in a processmn. As ,a rule, he gives the oath to the President at his inauguration. Should a Presi- dent be impeached, ,he pre- sides at the Senate headn'gs. Of the associate Justices, only one, Samuel Chase (1796 to 1811) has been impeached, that is, accused of a wron 'ov which the Senate could re- move him. Justice Chase did lack "judicial temperaznent"; he made ptical speeches and denouneed the Presidert from the bench. But such things are rmt chimes. Hi: CHENEY By Clarence A Kelley Soil Conservation Service With the cose of March, spring my soon cone, we hope Officially it came in March but apparently everyone knew but the weatherman. Much spring work 'has been completed in Southeastern and Souh Cetral Washingto These ,areas h,ave reperted quite early springs and some drou, ghfyness from the lack of good winter moisture. Spring applications of fe,rtilzer on fall grain crops i below nor- mal, apparently because  in- adequate winiter moisture caus- ing fertiers not to leach downward throv.zh the s,oil profile. Soil Cests in this arena are in the process of being taken but F,o results re avail- able as yet. During March the district signed cooperative a2:reements with Medical Lake School Dis- trict, Grub Bro,thers, Waiter Mundt, Bob Reitner, Eugene Bergstrom, Orland Killin and Martin Caduvi. Tlmse seenJ nc cooperators brodzht a to- tal of 2,360 acres additiotn,al failed. The Senate w,tfld not remove him from office. What are the legal qualifi- cations for a Supreme" Court Justice? None: The Constitution sets n,o fmal requirements. He does net have to be a lawyer, though all of them have been. The President may name any one he c'hooses; and, with U. S. Senate approval, he goes on the berch. But the informal quaifica- tions of a justice of the Su-i preme Court are grea,t, for a] I seat in the U. S., Supreme[ Court is a lawyers highest[ honor. , Before a person goes on that I high bench, the Senate holds hea,rings and can re,use, to con,firm this ap0ointment.' And ,this has happened. &n then it is up to the Pres- ident to name anot.her a, nd an- other, urttil the Serrate cn- firm's his nominee. The Sen- ate carmot nominate its own candidate; it can only approve or disapprove the Presden,t's. Membership of the U. S. Su- preme Court changes quite often. Justices take office fr life, but ,a fair number retire from time to time for heatth reasons. For as a rule, such honors come late in life (This column is written to inform, n advise. Facts may change the apgl, ication of the law.) I Dairy Cattle Have Strict Social Order By Gayle Gurtle Did you kn, ow that there is a social order for cattle and this ,ts true in every ,herd? This ,has been n,oted .by dairy farm- ers by studying the acti, ons of their animals ,over periods of time. This social sysltem is ,aso found in other clases of livestock, ixtcludirrg poultry. In dairy herds at least one cow is t the top of the line and bess of all other animals in the herd. It is also fund that several animals are d'own at the bottom of the rank and do no't get the privileges of the an,finals farther up the adder. As a resul't, they are dominat- ed and ,in many cases, do not receive adequate feed unless ex'Wa provisiors are made. System Employed In past years, many dairy- men used :the loose-housing system for ,their hrds and cows were kept in an open shed. A dominant cow w'ould spend much of her time walk- ing around and disturbing [other animals. Perhaps she go some pteasure out of this ac- tion. In contrast to this, and with th, e new system of h'ous- ing being adopted by many dairymen, it is posible t. avoid this diturba,n.ce and to land under district agreement. Fred Wilcox, Walter Mundt, Gerald McCoury, Bob Rei.t- meier, and J. Edward Betz were ,assisted by Richard Jes- sen and myself in the develop- ment of conservation farm plans. Each received copies of their ou,tlind pregram al'ong with a soil survey map and aerial photographs of their farm. Similar plarming assis- tance is available to all district cooperators. Woodland management pa, ctices are strng this year. Each of the following were assisted by Rudy Rosenz- weig in the planning and lay- out of five acres of pruning nd thinning: Violet Balum, El- woad Landt, Roy Steve,nson, C. A. St. Germain, R. C. Jones, ttenrv Reimcrs, Wa,ltcr Krit- zer, Saren Lundby. Frank Jor- dan, Carl Grub and Lloyd Lgv- ell. Osb3.rn Belch,, an Joe I,abish e,aeh cm?lc{ed five acres of pruning and thinning. Earl,Jdl! was assisted during the mon,h in the planning and layout of a sring develop- men or livestock waeer. give all animals he pivacy that they desire. This new sys- tem is called free-stl hous ing. The boss cow in the herd does not bother the ohe,r an. mals as much so that they can get more rest. R has a"lso been 'o:und that the social order in dairy herds definity affects the produc- ,tion. If ample feed is pu out for the cows, such as hay and silage, those at the btom of the social line are not willing to assert themselves for the feed. They stand around and wait un!til the others have filled up before going to the manger. In many cases where there i,s not sufficient feed, these more timid cows do n,ot get as much feed as they need. This, of course, results in l.t production. Some of the boss cows will .fight o*thers so that they are upset abouI milking time. When a cow comes in for milking, the added excitement causes her to hold up on her milk. By providing .adequa,te ,hous- ing and feedirg faeili.lies, it is possible for better manage- ment and better production even with the soci,al system in , da.iry .herds.
