Spring can't be far off when the American Cancer Society announces its seventh annual "Daffodil Days."

Utahns are urged to order a bunch of the bright yellow flowers at $3.50 each to give to family or friends or to donate to a hospital or care center.More than 80 cents of each dollar raised during Daffodil Days is directed into one of the following programs: research, public and professional education or service and rehabilitation for cancer patients and their families.

Last year Utahns purchased over 50,000 daffodils, making the first flower of spring a symbol of hope for a cure for cancer in our lifetime.

Orders of more than $35 (10bunches) will be delivered on March 19; smaller orders can be picked up. Orders need to be mailed by March 1 to: American Cancer Society Daffodil Days, 610 E. South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84102. For more information, call 322-0431.
