Monday, April 3, 1961 THE TRANSCRIPT 3 • Medical Study Gives Cancer Difference In Jews and Non-Jews NEW YORK (JTA) There are no differences in cancer death rates among Protestants Catholics and Jews in New York but there are significant dif- ferences between Jews and non- Jews in the types of cancer they suffer, according to a research l"eport in the Journal of the Na- tional Cancer Institute. The findings were made by Dr. V. A. Newill, a skin spe- cialist at the Western Reserve University Medical School, who reported that Jews have a better chance than Catholics of avoid- ing cancers of the mouth, throat, lung, gall bladder, prostate and reproductive organs• The excep- tion in skin cancers is melano- ma, a particular type of such malignant tumors. On the other hand, Jews dem- onstrate greater susceptibility than Protestants or Catholics to cancers of the large intestine, kidney, brain, thyroid, blood (leukemia), br ea st (among males) and liver and pancreas (among females). Dr. Newill Said his findings confirmed earlier discoveries that Jewish women suffer less cervical cancer than non Jewish women, which has been attri- butted to tlm practice of ritual circumcision among Jews• The inding that Jewish males suf- fer less lung, throat and esopha- gus cancer has been attributed to the belief that Jews use less alcohol and tobacco. The skip specialists said medi- cal sieige does not know wiy • ews should suffer more from I , CHESLEY [ TRANSFER CO.

Kennedy's stand against the extension ell Federal aid to parochial schools• cancers of the large intestine, brain and thyroid and less from skin prostate cancers• Dr. New- i]l's findings confirmed those of his Harvard teacher, ProL Brian McMahon, who did a similar study of cancer deaths in New York City in 1955. Dr. Newill also found that within religious groups, there were no differences as to inci- dence of cancer between native and foreign-born victims. He de- clined to speculate on the mean- ing of the differences in types I of cancers as between Jews and I non-Jews except to note that tile Jewish group "had some I homogeneity of expel•fence that 1 is meaningful in terms of cancer mortality•" Kindliest Greetings frons HOLY NAMES ACADEMY Boarding and Doy School for Girls 21st North end East Aloha -- Seattle • Accredited by the State University and the State Deparlment of Education For Information Call EAst 2-4460 QUALITY SHOES FOR WOMEN -- SAvINGs UP TO 50% AND MORE cONNOR'S 5th AVE., INC. 505-07 Plne Street MU• 2-4062--Seattle Across from Frederick & Nelson Passover Gi'eetings TAYLOR'S OF SEATTLE, INC.

Electrical Contractors 1517 I. 177th EM. 3-0355 or EM. 2-8450 Seattle has passed and no longer is: there room for a "King Maker" and his "Court" who will select' the Warden of the Lodge and no longer will the office of Warden be tantamount to the high office of the Presidency. Yes, things have indeed changed . . . To be an officer of the Lodge means much more than just running and being elected to an office. It carries with it a responsibility and a duty. It means to work for a better Lodge, more members, more participation in Commun- ity programs. It means to work for equal rights among men, to help the oppressed, to alleviate suffering and to teach and to leanL To those who aspire to the leadership of the Lodge let him be admonished and remember what our Heavenly Father said to Moses and his brother Aaron, "My children are obstinate, ill tempered and troublesome. In assuming leadership over them expect to be cursed and even stoned by them." Now that the "Slate" has been submitted and approved, it behooves the members to exercise their franchise and vote for the future of tile Lodge.. , I am earnestly looking forward to a'record attendance on "Elec- tions Night." One thing sure, is that we will have a good run for our money, it seems that this year, "Everybody wants to get into the act." Happy Pesach, Shalom. stances have focused world at- tention on the proceedings . . . and have also raised questions, criticisms, fears, defenses, charg- es, and countercharges quite as strange as the facts surround- ing the Eiclnnann case. "Israel believes it has the right to try Eichmann. Except for segments of the hate press vehieh maintain that the murder of six million is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by 'interna- tional Jewry,' no one defends Eichmann or seriously questions his guilt. O n 1 y the legalities, technicalities and values of the' trialand sometimes the 'ethics' i of tile case--come in for discus- sion. But the discussion is so heated that often basic facts are forgotten; peo pl e sometimes talk as though Israel and Jews generally--and not Adolf Eich- mannwere on trial. State Conducts Trial "This is unfair and deplorable. Certainly Jews generally -- ex- cept for their profund emo- tional interesthave little to do with the Eichmann case• It is the entity of the State of :sn,el, imt an -amorphous group of' Jews, th a t indicted and will conduct the Eichmann trial. Is- rael is a member-state of the United Nations, an autonomous sovereignty, reslJonsible only to itself for its actions within its own national boundaries• Jew- ish people, as such, are not in- volved in the legal process of the Eichmann case and have no say in the matter. Jews outside of Israel, not being responsible for Israel's actions, should not be required to find explanations dr be defensive about what the government of Israel does "Still, the r e a 1 i t y is that American Jews do feel pressur- ed by the Eichmann trial, often are called upon to explain or defend• For some months now issues of the Eichmann case have been repeatedly raised in questions addressed to ADL. The questions come from Jews and Christians both; Christians who somehow feel that Jews generally have a responsibility in the case, Jews who want to know what are the facts. It is for these reasons that this spec- ial issue of the "ADL Bulletin" is devoted to the Eichmann case," Mr. Epstein concludes. Copies of the "special issue" may be obtained through the local ADL office, MA 4-5750.
