then to tho physicians of Pensylvanla
today by Dr. Jonathan SI. Wainwright,
t Scranton, In an address at the annual
'nvrnt:on of the 8tate Medical Society,
fr the Bellevue-strntrora.
Four-fifths of deaths from cancer,
amounting to 4S0O each year In Pennsyl
vania, could havo been prevented but for
4lay," he declared "This delay has In
each case been caused by Ignorance or

blow at the evil were described by Doc

The death 'rate from cancer In this

death rate, he said, adding that 16 per
sons In Pennsylvania die of the disease
each year.
Doctor Wainwright In his address on tho
canctr problem laid down principles for
the direction of doctors. He said:
"What the patient In a cencer opera
tions wants Is to know the cancer u III not
return vhe Is not Interested In the kind of
lnctslon that Is to be made, as one- might
think from hearing some lectures.
"Td save your patients from cancer,
save them from delay.
"Do not rule out cancer because the pa

lr. Christian B. Longenecker, of this

Ing which Dr. John O. Clark, of Phila

Commissioner John Price Jackson, of
the State Department of Labor and In
dustry addressed the delegates, explain
ing e purpose and operation of the
emr jyers' liability statute and the child
labor law.
The enactment regulating child labor,
he said, places great responsibility on
phylclans by giving them opportunity
to detect and prescribe for physical de
fects before a child begins norklng.
'Instead of driving the manufacturer
i to the wall, our State laws are of a kind
that wil Increase the prosperity of the
Commonwealth," he declared.
Dr. John 13. McAllister, of Harrlsburg,
' piesldent of the society. In a speech call
ing for wider publicity by doctors as
to medical matters, emphasized the need
for national licenses to practice medi

ferent Slates maintain varying standards
of requirements. v
Doctor McAllister as a means of stan
dardizing tho medical profession. The
necesdty for doctors to take the public
Into their confidence was set forth In con
nection with unstinted praise of news
paper publicity.
"The newspaper Is more powerful than
all the guns of nil the. armies of the
world," he declared to the audience of
several hundred physicians who assem
bled for the first meeting.
"If the newspapers of the world should
combine to stop the wur In Kurope ioua
the war would end," he continued.
"The doctor's best friend and the world's
best lriend Is the newspaper.
"In the public mind there Is great
curioilty about what doctors are doing;
thli Is news the public has; a right to know
"Because e do not take the public Into
our confidence sufficiently there Is skepti
cism about the value of much In medicine
and surecry.
"Co-operation between the doctor und
the newspaper Is needed to circulate medi

The need of three or four great city

Harry Goldberg Training for Feat That Will Get Him
First Place in Long Line of Phillies'
Enthusiasts When Rush Begins
"I'm goin' to sit the rtrst world series
ticket If I have to stay up for a week."
Harry Goldberg looked determined when
he made the declaration, He sells papcis
at 3th -nd Market streets, and, unlike
most- newsies, he doesn't bawl In your
ear as you pass by. He always has tho
latest editions, and, what's more, ho keeps
up to the mlnuto by reading the news
himself. That's why he knows that the
Phillies are In line for the bunting and
probably the biggest prize of all. He may
not be able to discuss tho details of the
war loan or the ship purchase bill, but
ho can tell you all about averages.
Harry has been following the race of the
local club all season, and felt Just as
badly as the Phillies did every time ther
were chalked down on the wiong side of
the ledger. When business and finances
would permit, Harry had a seat on the
right Jlcld bleachers, where he rooted with
all the energy of his 13 years every time
a famous Phil cracked the ball.
Is It any wonder that he wants to be
first In line for tho fight of tho Philly
clan? Although there's many a slip
twlxt the nag and the finish. Harry dopes
It out this way: "The Phillies win most
o' the time and they only have to stick
to their regular habit to keep on top. '
In fact, tho enthulastlc newsle doesn t
see why the Phils don't hike olT to some
swell photographer and get "mugged'
right away for their "world's-champlons"
But. as to the tickets, last year the
first ofthe world series pasteboards was
captured by Joe Banks, a fat boy who
said he lived in Camden. Joe sat on a
box all day rieur 0th and Market nnd was
relieved by his Dromer hi iiisnw
got the tickets for his father.

Now Harry can't see why any Camden

Almost 200 Men Would Like to
Fill 17 Places Organiza
tion Has Slate
The election of new Magistrates this
year has virtually resolved Itself Into a
man scramble for office. While there are
only 17 places to be nlle d" t the November
election! a total of nearly 200 names are
on the ballots of the Republican, Wash
ington, Democratic nnd Keystone parties
nt the primary election today. In addi
tion to these there are about a score of
names nppearlng exclusively on the So
cialist ba(ot.
Of the 17 10 he elected nnally 11 will be
from the majority pnrty nnd 6 from the
minority party. Bach party today, how
ever, will nominate il men whose names
will npocar on the hnllot for the Novem
ber election.
The Republican Organization has
"slated" 11 candidates, 8 of whom are at
present Magistrates. The names of these
11 nppcar only on the Republican ticket.
The names of tho majority of the other
candidates, however, nppear on tho bal
lots of several and sometimes nil of the
four parties. Tho Organization Is dis
tributing hundreds of sample ballots to
"save trouble" for tho voter, especially
li the selection of Magistrates.
The Democrotlo party has "slated" six
men from n total of 80 on the ballot to
day. Three of the six nre "Old Guard"
men apd the remaining three are with the
reorganization wing of tho party. The
"Old Guard" lenders nre secretly counting
on the nsslstanco of the bipartisan ma
chine to elect their three candidates.
These men nre:
Thomas E. Fltzpntrlck. William H. Mc
Quillan and Magistrate James II. Tough
hill. The reorganization candidates are
William II. Belcher, Joseph S. Boyle and
John J. Grells, all Magistrates whose
terms ore Just expiring.
The Washington Party City Committee
has prepared no slate for magistrates,
leaving the nomination entirely to the
choice of the voters today. Tho various
ward committees, however. In a number
of cases took It upon themselves to In
dorse several candidates. The ward com
mittees thus working Independently have
given sectional Indorsement to nearly all
of the 72 men whose names appear on
the ballot today. This action has only
served to confuse further tho election.
The formation of a new party by the
Committee of One Hundred and the Inde
pendent lenders after tho primary election
today, will have nn Important bearing
upon the election of the magistrates. This
party will. In all probability. Indorse the
cnndldotes who have been nominated on
the Washington party ballot today. There
Is little possibility of any fusion with
the Democrats, and for this reason the
formation of tho new party will work
strongly to the disadvantage of the Dem
ocrats In the selection of minority magis
trates. All of the 17 magistrates whose terms
expire this year are running for re-election,
except William Haggerty, who was
originally elected as a Republican. The
Organization this year, however, slated
John F. Collins to succeed him.
The present magistrates slated by the
Organization for re-election ari: George
i.. nogg, joscpn vjowara, jonn J. Jlarrl
gan, Leslie Tates, William J. Glenn Wil
liam J. Harris. John Mccleary and Byron
E. Wrlgley. In nddltion to Collins the
