The year 1962 has been designated "Cancer Progress Year" to focus attention on the advances made against cancer in the last 25 years: 1. Twenty-five years ago, the life of one in seven cancer victims was saved; today, one in three is saved. 2. About 173,000 Americans will be' saved from cancer in 1962. About 87,000 of those who will die of this disease might have been saved if they will avail themselves of earlier treatment by methods now available to science. The fund campaign serves a two-fold purpose: not only to appeal for funds, but to prompt I people to have check-ups for, early detection. The national! slogan, "Fight cancer with a, check-up and a check!", will be used again this year. andalize School o $1500 Damage School Board member Dean Burhhardt points out damage that will require purchase, of still another vault door (thieves smashed the first door last year).

Hornet Title Aspirations Depend on Chelsea Game by Lanny Bobbins Barring the possibility of upsets this week, both Saline and Dexter High should finish in the winners' circle as Washtenaw Conference court teams approach the finish line in their annual basketball race. To Saline, a victory over -Chelsea would bring a third consecutive title, the first time for any loop squad; and as well, it would be the first time in a number of years that the Hornets have been able to win both of the regular season meetings with the Bulldogs. To avoid any great chance of an upset, the Hornets will have to guard against another cold start such as they had against Roosevelt last week. In their Friday evening meeting with the Rough Riders from Ypsilanti last week, the Hornets took a shaky 26-20 first half lead before getting into gear in the third period to win the contest 67-46. Roosevelt had grabbed an early 3-0 lead on a free throw by Franklin and a basket by Wise before LaRue put the Hornets on the scoreboard with the second of a pair of free throws. A free throw by Wise a few seconds later allowed the Rough Riders to hold their margin. Tom Jeppesen plunked in Saline's first basket of the evening at 5:42 and started off the first long Saline scoring burst. Gary Niethammer capped the uninterrupted dash to a 10-4.

In the final two minutes of the half, the visitors had rallied to a 20-20 tie before Bernard, LaRue and Armbruster each whipped in field goals in the last 75 seconds of the half. LaRue took the opening tip and drove in for a lay-up as the second half opened. Before- the third period was 75 seconds old, the Hornets led by a formidable 32-20 margin as Jeppesen and Strait both added buckets. With 1:14 ieft in the third frame and ahead by a safe 46. to 31 edge, Saline started another short scoring burst that sent them to a 54-31 advantage, as Jerry McDonald goaled with 11 seconds remaining. Reserves were able to hold their own easily throughout the final period. Ed Strait led all scorers with 21 points as well as grabbing a good share of the rebounds with 12 of his team's 44 to his credit. From the floor, Saline made 29 of 69 tries, while Roosevelt had 18 of 61. From the free throw line, Saline had nine of 25, while the Rough Riders made eight of 14.

The vandals, who apparently entered through a hatch in the roof, tried to break into the school safe from four different directions, and. failed. But they damaged the vault door to such an extent that it must be replaced for the second time in approximately a year, at a cost of $480. The door was replaced in January, 1961, after thieves broke in and escaped with $450. They were later captured and confessed to the entry, as well as thefts at Belleville, Chelsea, and Willow Run schools. Monday's vandals, unable to enter the vault, then tore up a number of paper and pencil dispensing machines in the hall, to take about $2 in change. They also destroyed a soft drink dispenser in the cafeteria, but were unable to get at the money. One of them drank a pint of chocolate milk from the icebox. In their attempt to enter the vault, the intruders pried the handles off the door and chopped at it with a sharp tool. They dug through the plaster wall from the adjacent school office, cut a hole in the office ceiling and chopped into the ceiling in a conference room. Apparently angered at their inability to enter the safe, the NOW SHOWING: "THE FLYING MISSHJE" "The Flying Missile", a Navy submarine story, is the feature film Saturday at the Kiwanis theater at the Intermediate School. Glenn Ford and Viveca Landfors are starred. Admission is 35 cents and the movie begins at 7:30 p.m. men then tore a drinking fountain from its moorings outside the office and smashed a number of glass panels in classroom doors in the front hall. But they were selective in their glass- breaking; they passed up trophy cases, the all-around glass of the front office, and the all- glass walls of the library and art room. The robbery occurred between 11 p.m., when a public meeting at the school closed, and 7:30 a.m., when the damage was discovered by Custodian Reuben Visel. The men, "probably two or three of them", apparently parked in a nearby subdivision and walked to the school, according to Lt. Vincent Snell of the Sheriff's department. They left no clear fingerprints, but a number of glove marks were found. The methods used were the same as those in recent school robberies in Monroe, Wayne, Jackson, and. Lenawee counties, Lt. Snell said, but this was the first of its type in this county. Amounts varying from two cents to $2,000 were taken from the other schools. Even if the vandals had succeeded in entering the vault, they woul have been disappointed, Superintendent Leo Jensen said. No money is ever kept overnight in the school safe. 67 46 HEALTH DEPT.

With 10 wins and only three defeats to their record, the Little Hornets added another scalp to their belts Friday evening by doubling the scoring on the Little Rough Riders, 62-31. With 12 of the 15 Salinians in the scoring column, there was little doubt about the outcome of the game. In the first quarter, Saline snatched a 16-4 lead and extended it to 36-13 at the half. The Little Hornets hit over -double figures in each period while Roosevelt never got over nine in a quarter. High scorer for the evening was the Little Rough Riders' Craig Milford with 15 points. Tops for Saline was Gary Kind with 10.
