In the wake of Monday's Cancer
Society announcement that more than
one-fourth of this year's American can-
cer deaths will be caused by lung can-
er, University researchers yesterday
id a breakthrough in treatment may
be on the horizon.
A team of medical scientists headed
by Dr. Ronald Natale is researching a
combination of three drags which ac-
cording to Natale have shown some ef-
fectiveness against previously un-
treatable cancer of the lung.
"We began doing actual clinical in-
vestigations at the Sloan-Kettering In-
stitute approximately four and a half
ears ago," said Natale, of the Univer-
sity's division of Hematology-Oncology
in the Department of Internal
Medicine. Of the 12 experimental anti-
cancer drugs tested, only three had any
effect on lung cancer, he said.
"The average survival rate in patien-
ts with advanced lung cancer is three to
four months," according to Natale.-
"With the multi-drug treatment, the
average survival rate is currently
beyond eight months," he said.
* Eventually, the new treatment may
prolong life for more than one and a
half years, he said, adding that but
while the new treatment looks
promising, the results are still
"The treatment is classified as in-
vestigational and our results will have
to be confirmed by independent in-
vestigators outside the university,"
The three-drug combination -
Cisplatinum, VP16, and MGBG, all
chemotherapeutics used against
various types of cancers - has clearly
improved 60 percent of the advanced or
terminal lung cancer cases on which it
has been tested, according to Natale.
Ultimately, he said, the treatment will
be even more effective than it is now.
Another aspect of Natale's research
involves the successful cultivation of
different types of cancer cells outside
This technique is very similar to
"growing bacteria in a petri dish," ac-
cording to Natale, and allows
physicians to test new cancer
chemotherapies on tumor cells without
subjecting the patient to the uncomfor-
table side-effects of most cancer drugs.

A crowd of about 40 gathered on the
Diag yesterday in this year's third rally
at the University supporting the Polish
labor union Solidarity.
Speakers from the Campus Labor,
Support Group, which sponsored the
rally, and representatives of other
organizations criticized President
Reagan's foreign policy and called for
an end to martial law in Poland and to
U.S. intervention there.
"REAGAN MAY sound sympathetic,
but he is using his sympathy for Cold
War manuevers," said Paul Lefrak, a
member of the Campus Labor Group.
Peter Pesch, a representative of the
campus Latin American Solidarity
Committee, accused Reagan of hypoc-
risy in his domestic and foreign
policies.° Reagan has urged support of
the strike in Poland, Pesch said, while a
similar strike in the United States is
illegal, according to the Taft-Hartley
"The United States needs a coherent
human rights policy to support freedom

Reagan reconsiders 'budget pla
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan postponed final decisions on his.
1983 budget plan after having "second
thoughts" about higher excise taxes to
narrow a burgeoning deficit, ad-
ministration sources said yesterday.
Several officials, asking not to be
identified, said the president ten-
tatively had agreed Wednesday to seek
higher excise taxes on cigarettes,
whiskey, wine and "luxury" items as
part of a plan to raise some $15 billion in
new federal revenues in 1983.
YESTERDAY, however, the
president was described by one White_
House official as the "lone holdout" in
the face of a unanimous recommen-
dation by his economic advisers that he
approve the budget plan, including the
"The president is reluctant to give a
final sign-off" on boosting excise taxes
"and probably will be mulling. it over
the weekend" before deciding whether,
to go ahead with it, said the official.
"He's having second thoughts," the
official added. The president plans to
disclose the major elements in his
budget Tuesday, when he delivers his
State of the Union message to Congress.
REAGAN'S reluctance is said to stem
from his concern that any move to seek
higher taxes would indicate a lack of
confidence on his part that his
economic program of spending cuts and
income tax reductions was not working.
In addition, Republican leaders in the
House have warned that raising excise
taxes on consumer goods, such as
alcohol and gasoline, would be a
political mistake for the GOP.
In a recent letter to budget director
David Stockman, House GOP Whip
Trent Lott of Mississippi andRep. Jack
Kemp of New York, one of the earliest
advocates of tax cuts, complained that
higher excise taxes will hurt the "little
guy" and risk political defeat fob
