    THE PRESIDENT OF THE CONFERENCE, IRISH-BORN DR. JOHN HIGGINSON, WHO IS DIRECTOR OF THE INTERNATIONAL AGENCY FOR CANCER RESEARCH IN LYONS, FRANCE, TOLD DELEGATES THAT A CURE MIGHT WELL BE FOUND FOR CANCER IN AFRICA. HE SAID THAT CANCER WAS RAPIDLY BECOMING A MAJOR CAUSE OF DEATH THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AND HE CITED SINGAPORE AS ONE PLACE WHERE, IN THE PAST 15 YEARS, IT HAD BECOME THE NUMBER ONE KILLER. HIS AGENCY INTENDED SETTING UP SEVERAL REGIONAL LABORATORIES IN THE FUTURE AND ONE OF THEM COULD BE IN EAST AFRICA, HE SAID.

    OFFICIALLY OPENING THE CONFERENCE, KENYA'S HEALTH MINISTER, MR. J. D. OTIENDE, USED THE OLD ROMAN SAYING "EX AFRICA SEMPER ALIQUID MOOIS" -- SOMETHING NEW ALWAYS COMES OUT OF AFRICA. THIS CONFERENCE MAY PROVE THE TRUTH OF THIS SAYING TODAY, HE SAID.
