MME. CURIE PLANS TO END ALL CANCERS

GETS TRIBUTE ON ARRIVAL
Motherly Looking Scientist in Plain Black Frock Gives Thanks to Americans.
..."Radium is a positive cure for cancer," she said. "It has already cured all kinds of cancer, even deep-rooted cases....Nevertheless there can be positive cures when properly applied. Those who have failed do not understand the method."

RADIUM NOT A CURE FOR EVERY CANCER

..."What Mme. Curie said," explained her secretary, "was that radium was a specific for many forms of the disease. She did not wish to be understood as asserting that it could effect a cure in every case."

MOVIE CENSOR LAW SIGNED BY MILLER
'The Only Way to Remedy What Every One Conceded a Great Evil,' Says Governor.
HASN'T PICKED COMMISSION
Three Men to Decide What Constitutes Objectionable Play, With Right of Veto.
--The New York Times, May 15, 1921
Governor Miller signed the bill shortly before a vacation with Mrs. Miller, set to last about 2 weeks. He argued the law wasn't censorship, because it sets the standards--even though the standards would be argued today ("inhuman" doesn't seem to be very specific to me). The governor hasn't decided who to appoint and interestingly (and contrary to the headline), said he would choose the right people, whether male or female! They figured to charge money for each film reviewed, and thus actually make money from this proposition. The commission could demand certain scenes be removed, or reject the film outright.
The New York Archives has a good summary of the history of this censorship board.
