Cancer Campaign in Queensland
A committee has been formed to organize the treatment of cancer in Queensland. A committee of direction which acts as a scientific advisory board has under its control a clinical and pathologic subcommittee, a finance subcommittee and a publicity subcommittee. The function of the publicity subcommittee will include the raising of funds and the control of advertisements of "cancer cures." Since the inception of the campaign eight months ago, £13,320 has been raised. Much more is expected.Queensland is handicapped from the standpoint of cancer research in that it has no medical school in the Queensland University. Accordingly, the campaign committee is first concentrating its attention on the establishment of treatment centers. In the capital of the state, plans are being prepared for a building to act as a central cancer hospital. The plans for this building are based on a similar institution in Toulouse, France.
