A reprint of the March Fortune article, part of the campaign against cancer carried on by life, Fortune, Maroh of Time, etc. in the endeavor to arouse the layman to fight the disease which is second from top in mortality rate. Covers historical background, occurrence, manifestation, contagion and susceptibility, treatment. Concise and clear. Admits insufficient progress medicine has made in tracing basic causes and difficulty in reaching solution while layman blanks the way. An appeal for cooperation, for material funds, for understanding. Excellent -- well done.
