Doctor Talks
On Cancer
Variation s
What is commonly called cancer
is actually a complex family of
diseases made up of b.etween 200
to 300 different types, Dr. Howard
B. Latourette, chaii*man of the
University's Cancer Research In-
stitute, told a district training
school of the American Cancer
Society in Ypsilanti, Thursday.
The cancer specialist said that
cancer has more than 200 forms
and is as difficult to understand
and control as life itself.
"These diseases differ widely in
their characteristics and prog-
nosis," Latourette said, "but all
have the same fundamental basis,
the uncontrolled growth of ab-
normal cells."
He explained that an increasing
number of facts are being un-
covered about the causes of can-
cer and its effects on patients.
Also, scientists are constantly im-
proving the methods of detecting
and treating this disease.
"Using the best methods of
treatment now available, many
patients can be cured. However,"
Latourette continued, "the final
understanding and control of the
whole family of diseases we call
cancer will probably come when
we understand and control growth
and 'life itself."

Abdul Gamal Nasser is facing a

As long as the Ottoman Empire
remained a major power, the Arabs
were not subject to a feeling of
inferiority imposed upon them by
the Western nations when they
began domination of North Africa
at the beginning of the century,
he said.
"But by 1900 the situation was
changing," Prof. Kirk continued.

Prof. Kirk Discusses Nasser Problem

pendence, the Arab nations joined
the British against the Turks in
World War I, he said. But then
Great Britain and France tried to
assimilate. these nations as. colo-
nies, thus frustrating the hopes of
the Arab nationalists. Here began
the Arab's struggle with the West
for independence, he continued.
When, at the conclusion of World
War II almost all the Arab nations
had gained independence; they
formed a loose confederation
known as The League of Arab
"These states did not begin to
move toward true unity until the
Zionist, movement to reestablish a
;Jewish., state in Palestine, spurred
the Arabs to unite against a com-
onenemy. Their militaryactions
at this time-failed miserably, Prof.
Kirk, said'. Ten years ago, ".they

the Egyptian military coup in 1952,
Prof. Kirk said. "There was en-

Achieves Success
For the first two years, Nasser
was preoccupied with the affairs
directly concerning the Nile Valley,
but by the summer of 1954 he
achieved his first success in inter-,
national politics by closing an
agreement with the British allow-
ing for the removal, of British
forces out of the Suez Canal Zone.
Both Arab nationalists and com-
munists attacked this seemingly
friendly agreement as neither
wanted Egypt to cooperate with-
the West, Prof. Kirk said.
During this time, events were
working against the prestige of
the Egyptian regime. Iraq entered
into a pact with Turkey over the
violent objections of the Egyptian
government, he noted, even though
Egypt had been the acknowledged
leaders of the Arab League. Fric-
tion on the Egyptian-Israeli border.
near the Gaza Strip added another
blow to Egyptian military power,
Prof. Kirk continued.

It was at this time, Prof. Kirk
pointed out, that Egypt sought
arms from the Western nations to
use against' Israel. The West, of
course, refused.
But in 1955, Nasser did get arms
from the Soviet Union. This was
the turning point of his. career,
Prof. Kirk said. Egypt had finally
received support from a major
world power, and this made him
the hero of the young' Arab na-
"It is important to note, Prof.
Kirk said, "that this purchase of
arms had nothing to do with Com-
munism." At this tIme, Nasser was
flirting with 'the Soviet ,bloc and
jailing Communists in Egypt.
Nationalize Canal
According to Prof. Kirk, Nasser
dispelled any doubt of his leader-
ship of the' Arab nations when he
nationalized the Suez Canal .'in
1956. His motivations were pri-
marily centered on Egyptian gain,
Prof. Kirk said. "But his actions
were -hailed as a' gesture of Arab
independence by nationalists
throughout the Arab states, and
this victory overshadowed the dis-
astrous military defeat the Egyp-
tian army encountered during this
A great step was taken toward
Arab unity with the formation of
the UAR, and the revolution in
Iraq has added new strength to
Nasser's position as the head of
Arab nationalism, Prof. Kirk said.
"But now he is faced with a deli-
cate' problem.
"With the formation of the UAR
we may look for a more complete
Arab unity than before. But if
Nasser pursues his aims of carrying
his power throughout North 4frica,
he faces tremendous political risks
with his questionable military and
economic equipment. If he should
adopt a more gradualist policy
which may offend his strongly na-
tionfist backers, he faces a great
weakening of his position.
"The time may cone when Nas-
ser will be following the wave of
Arab nationalism and not leading
it," Prof. Kirk concluded.
