New Hope For Cancer
Cure Seen By Doctor
Chicago—New hope for cancer
sufferers—hope that centers in
those mysterious substances known
as "hormones”—was held out by
Dr. Antoine La Cassagne, associate
director of the famed Curie Insti
tute of the University of Paris.
Now on a lecture tour in the
United States on invitation of lead-;
[ ing medical and science groups,
I Dr. La Cassagne said:
"Great progress in the under
standing of cancer has been made.
The major lines of present research
are especially promising.”
The research with which Dr. La
Cassagne and the Curie scientists
are principally concerned now is
that involving hormones, or chemi
cal substances which circulate
through the body, producing
changes in its functions and con
dition. Dr. La Cassagne said:
"There is evidence that, for
every hormone, there is an antag
onistic hormone. The problem,
then, is to determine the cancer
producing hormone, and then try
to identify and stimulate the action
of the hormone that will fight it.”
Making the cancer-fighters’ task
all the more difficult, he said, is the
fact that there are many different
types of the disease, and probably
many different causes. If the
causes can be determined, then
methods of prevention and treat
ment can be more intelligently
The physician declared:
"Surgery, radium and X-ray re
main the principal methods of
treatment. Research may show us
entirely different and more effec
Because hormones are transmit
ted from parents to children, the
importance of learning what hor
mones are cancer-producing is tre
mendous, the doctor pointed out.
The study of cancer-producing
chemicals is being led by the Lon
don doctors, Kenaway and Cook,
he said, and their work has shown
a close link between these chamicals
and the hormones.
"'Don’t try to change your
voice.” That’s the advice of Ellen
Claire Couch, prominent dramatic
coach and teacher of speech.
"You are born with your irJ
vidual voice—soprano, mezzo or
contralto—and are likely to injure
your speaking apparatus by any at
tempt to change the timbre or
quality. No woman should try to
force her voice below its natural
pitch,” says Miss Couch.
She also suggests that many girls
make a mistake in thinking that the
rule about peaking softly means the
use of low, throaty tones. Even a
high soprano voice can be as soft
and well modulated as a naturally
Care in the pronunciation of
words, and a pleasant natural, un
affected voice that best expresses
one’s individual personality, is more
important to success' than voice
tone, according to Miss Couch.

Spring meant tonic time to an
older generation. Today it means
greater attention to the importance
of vitamins in the diet, for we now
know that most 'tonic’ effects come
from the vitamins in our foods.
Milk, eggs, plus sunlight or cod liver
oil, plenty of fruit, and the new
green vegetables such as lettuce,
celery, endive, parsley, cress and
spinach will help supply your quota
of spring tonic vitamins.
