Another former prisoner of war,

for almost five years.
One day in 1966, informants said,
Brace attempted to escape but was
caught. His captors placed him in
stocks for several days, sitting up
day and night, then buried him up

NOGALES, Ariz. W) - T h e
number of teen-age smokers con-
tinues to rise, even though can-
cer caused by smoking takes
70,000 to 80,000 lives a year, the
president of the American Can-
cer Society said yesterday.
Dr. Arthur James of the Ohio
State University School of Medi-
cine, in Columbus said the in-
crease comes principally among
teen-age girls who have started
The cancer society said that
the percentage of teen-age boys,
aged 1248, who smoke cigarettes
rose from 14.7 in 1968 to 15.7
in 1972. But more significantly,
the percentage of teen-age girls
rose sharply from 8.4 in 1968 to
13.3 in 1972.
If the trend among the girls
continues, the society said, t h e
percentage of adult smokers,
male and female, will be about
the same. At present, the per-
centage of adult male smokers
is 43.2; women, 30.9. The figure
comes from government surveys,
the society said.

Lung cancer kills more people
than any other cancer. An esti-
mated 72,000 of the 350,000 who
will die of cancer in 1973 w iI
succumb to lung cancer. "And al-
most all of these deaths are pre-
ventable," the surgeon said.
If cigarette smoking were eli-
minated, the death toll for all
cancer could be reduced by as
much as. one-fifth, he said.
James said that even though
the facts about the dangers of
cigarette smoking have been
widely disseminated, "there has
been a counter wave of induce-
ment and almost of seduction to
keep the cigarette smoker shack-
led to his addiction and to entrap
new converts among the young."
Eighty per cent of lung can-
cers result from cigarette smok-
ing, but it also is involved in can-
cers of the larynx, kidney, eso-
phogus, pharynx, urinary blad-
der and pancreas.
"Altogether these sites, along
with lung cancer, account for
about 100,000 deaths a year,"
James said. "Conservatively it
can be estimated that from 70,-
000 to 80,000 of these deaths are
related to cigarette smoking."
The number of adult ex-cigar-
ette smokers has risen over the
years, with 29 million having quit
by the end of 1970, he reported.

Redgrave - Jackson
$1.25 Friends of Newsreel
"Two fine actresses, Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson, give
force and substance . . . Redgrave's Mary is regal, nervous,
uncertain-a delicate creature who becomes indomitable only in
death . . Jackson's Elizabeth is cunning, complex, intriguing-
a monarch whose desire for power is bolt a motivating force and
a tragic flow."
--Jay Cocks, TIME
"A truly extraordinary film in every way, a great directorial
achievement. Brilliant acting . . . without question one of the
year's best (1972)."
