More than 50 percent of all animals
in the three groups. Dr. Hillemann
found, developed cancerous growths
after an average of 132 days follow
ing injections, and died on the aver
age within 30 days after the appear
ance of the tumor.
Only 37 percent of the animals on
the supplemental or vitamin-boosted
diet developed cancers as against 58
percent of the hamsters on the defi
cient and whole diets, he recorded.
All experimental animals were
placed on a supplemental diet immed
iately after a tumor appeared, but
all eventually died. Average life
span after cancer appeared was 56
days for the supplemental-diet group;
27 days, whole-diet hamsters; and
33 days, deficient-diet animals, Sup
plemental-diet hamsters had a life-
span advantage of 46 percent over
both the whole and deficient diet
I rhabdomyosarcoma, were found to be
highly malignant. They grew rapidly
to large size anil frequently out
weighed an animal by as much as
25 percent. Some tumors on 3-
ounce hamsters weifdied 4 ounces.
In the past several years Dr. Hille
mann has guided more than 10 grad
uate students in as many research
projects concerning the hamster’s
growth. As a widely-known embry
ologist, he has written numerous
articles for leading scientific journals.

costs. Lane county prices were $37.50

Though human beings have beat
the animals at many of their
games, the art of diving still is in
the hands of the animals. The
most expert diver of the animal
world is the otter which dives into
the water from long distances.
The remarkable thing about the
diving of this animal is that its
motion is so smooth that the water
is hardly disturbed. Otters never
.‘■plash—and they are the world's
best divers, for all others, includ
ing men, make splashes.

What is civil defense?
It is a way of saving
_ lives and
property. Civil defense is a way of
protecting you and your family in
case of war. It is a way of helping
to keep you going, and to keep pro
duction going, in spite of atomic,
biological or chemical attacks.
One of the chief aims of civil de
fense is to help you stay at work no
matter what may come. Unless all
of us keep at our jobs in the face
of attack, the enemy will win the
war. His aim would be to make you
and others desert your cities so our
defense plants would shut down.
America can be attacked at any
time. Right now enemy planes can
reach every major city in the United
States. We know Russia has long-
range bombers patterned after ours.
Most of them could get through our
defenses. We know Russia has atomic
bombs, and is making more all the
time. She is able to wage bioligical
warfare for use against people, plants
and animals. Russia has war gases.
We know that some of the German
experts who developed the new deadly
nerve gases were taken into Russia at
the end of the past war.
Aircraft could deliver atomic,
bombs, disease or poison gases at
anv moment. What is more, fifth
columni ts within our country could
strike with all three types of wea
pons. It could happen simultan
eously, or saboteurs could start their
work much earlier. With some types
of biological warfare, they could begin
work weeks or even months ahead of
time, without waiting for a war to

Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, and time
again for “Roses are red, violets are
blue,”-—the well-worn verse that has
tugged at the heart strings of young
lovers for many years.
Saint Valentine, who was regarded
as the patron saint of unhappy lovers
died back in 270, but love messages
sent on Feb. 14 are still called Val
entines after him. According to the
legend, he was beheaded on this
date and his name became associated
with a pagan celebration in honor of
School children today, happily cele
brate this day by carefully shopping
for red hearts fringed elegantly with
lace, to give shyly to “special” friends.
These are signed modestly with a
question mark instead of a name.
Still other Valentines are passed out
freely to all school mates.
Time was when children could not
buy Valentines but had to rely on
their own ingenuity to prepare a
love missive. The old wallpaper cata
log was relished at this time and Val
entine hearts cut from the prettiest
designs. These were mounted on
whatever red paper was available,
and then etched with an appropriate I
verse or message.
Children years ago were just as
discriminating as they are now, and
nicest Valentines went to the select
few. Receipt of a “store” Valentine,
at this time was a cherished posses
sion, and broken hearts would increase
if a youngster received only “home
