position that bv giving this aid, the
United States can keep Yugoslavia
independent, anel out of the arms of
the Soviet Union, and asked if, as
seemed obvious, Commander Daniel
would disagree with that.
"Let me quote Mr. Tito," Mr. Daniel said, by way of reply. "Mr. Tito
said in a statement in Stalingrad in
June of this year, while speaking to
the Russian people, that 'we shall
march shoulder to shoulder with the
Kremlin in their march toward our
ultimate goal of complete socialization
of the world.'"
"As I understand it, the Legion's
attitude is one of tolerance with the
United Nations," mentioned Mr. Prina,
"but when they consider UNESCO, I
believe the Legion objects to the distribution of UNESCO materials in our
schools, saying that this leads us to
one-world ideas, and the like. Now,
elo you think that the United States
should drop out of UNESCO?"
"We have never advocated that the
United States drop out of UNESCO,"
Mr. Daniel clarified. "We have advocated that we do away with our National Commission for UNESCO. This
entire subject of UNESCO brings up
one question: Do we, as a nation, wish
to maintain our national sovereignty,
our American way of life, under God,
a way of life that isn't perfect, but one
which has provided for its people-
more freedom, more happiness, and a
higher standard of living than any
known to man; or do we wish to become part of an international system
of collectivism which recognizes nothing higher than economic determinism.
"I think that sums up pretty well the
way we feel about UNESCO," he concluded. END

A thorough inspection of scalp,
head, and neck will be conducted by
thc doctor. By using a tongue depressor and an examining light, he looks at
the patient's lips, the inside of the
cheeks, gums, tongue, throat, and tonsils. However, if there is actual hoarseness of the throat, he may do a more
extended throat examination. Generally, this is not needed.
By using his fingers, the doctor will
feel beneath the jaws and along the
neck of his patient. He will be looking
for so-called swollen glands (enlarged
lymph nodes). He will also feel for
swellings in the armpits and at the
points where one's collarbones join the
neck. Additionally, he will run his
fingers over the scalp to detect lumps.
Because of the element of accessibility, with corresponding early detection and treatment, cancers of the
breast and pelvic area frequently can
be cured. In the physical examination
given to women, doctors will examine
the breasts to detect abnormalities of
shape or size and to discover lumps.
Doctors can also instruct female patients, showing them a simple method
by which they may detect cancer in
its earliest, anel therefore most curable,
For all women, no check-up should
be complete without a pelvic examination. And for the most complete protection, the latter should be repeated
at regular six-month intervals for
those over thirty-five.
Cancer's "C" men have brought new
hope to hundreds of thousands of
American women. "C" is for cytology,
which is the study of body cells.3
Cancer of the uterus is, next to
breast cancer, the most dangerous
killer of women. Now, however, with
a simple cytological test, cancer can
be detected early and dealt with. A
painless cervical smear on a glass
slide, given expert examination under
a microscope, is sufficient to detect
cancer in its early — and curable —
stage. It has been recommended that
every woman have her physician take
a cervical smear every twelve months.4
If the doctor does discover any
symptom or warning of cancer during
the examination, the next positive step
will be to do a biopsy. This is the simple procedure of merely cutting a tiny
particle from the patient's body ancl
submitting it to a pathologist, to be
examined closely under a microscope
for positive identification.
While the patient is on the examin
ing table, the doctor will press on
various parts eif the abodmen. By

normal size anel character of the
abdominal organs. With men, he is
more likely to be concerned with the
digestive- system organs. If there are
reports of persistent indigestion, he
may recommend more specifically intensified studies.
It might be- added that cytology is
not limited to discovering cancer in
any one area. "C" men probe in*0
throats, colons, ancl stomachs. For example, a timid woman came to it clinic
for a smear test, bringing her husband.
To impress upon his wife the Simplicity of the test, the man bad a smear
