Annual X-rays may aid survival
rate of lung can
CHICAGO (AP) - Cigarette smokers may improve their
chances of surviving lung cancer by undergoing a chest X-
ray examination at least once a year, two radiologists told a
national conference yesterday.
Robert Heelan, radiologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center in New'York, said he studied 10,000 men over
45 who smoked at least one pack of cigarettes a day.
HE FOUND that 40 percent of the 280 patients who had
developed lung cancer since 1971 were diagnosed - using X-
rays - as having the disease at the earliest stage of its
development, he told the Radiological Society of North
America's annual meeting.
Cancer detected at that stage has an 85 to 90 percent chance
of being cured, while cancer diagnosed at later stages is vir-
tually incurable, he said.
Heelan and John Muhm, assistant professors of radiology
at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said their studies led
them to believe that if heavy cigarette smokers received X-
rays at least once a year, cancer deteced by the tests might
be at an early enough stage that it could be treated by
surgery or radiation therapy.
The position of the two radiologists differs from that of the
American Cancer Society. Cele Gagan, public information
officer with the society's Chicago office, said the society
believes that by the time lung cancer shows up on an X-ray, it
has advanced past the point where it can be cured
Heelan said 125,000 Americans, most of them smokers,
contract lung cancer every year. Most of them will find out
they have cancer after developing symptoms - which usually
means the cancer has reached advanced, incurable stages,
Muhm said his study of 10,000 smokers was divided into two
groups of 5,000 - one group which underwent chest X-rays and
analyses of the fluid in their lungs every four months; and the
other which was just advised that an annual X-ray would be a

Testimony adds twist i
LONDON (AP)- The defense
claimed yesterday that a former NATO
economist on trial as a Soviet spy was a
double agent working for Canada and
France as well as the Soviets. A former
Canadian cabinet minister who should
have know about it said he didn't
believe the claim.
"Are you aware the defense in this
case would be that Hugh Hambleton
was at all material times a Canadian
and French agent who successfully
penetrated the Russian espionage
organization?" defense lawyer John
Lloyd-Eley asked a police witness
during the third day of Hambleton's
trial at the Old Bailey Central Criminal
DETECTIVE Supt. Peter Westcott,
who helped interrogate Hambleton, a
60-year-old Canadian professor, after
his arrest in Britain last June, replied
that the first he knew of the double-
agent claim was in a "hint" during a
closed session of the court earlier,
yesterday. Lloyd-Eley made clear that
Hambleton would claim members of
the French security service visited him
Hambleton, a NATO economist in
Paris from 1956 to 1961 and economics
professor at Quebec's Laval University
since 1964, pleaded innocent Monday to
two charges of spying for the Soviets
between 1956 and 1979.
His claim of being a double agent was
challenged by Allan Lawrence,
Canada's solicitor general in the 1979-80
Progressive Conservative government,
who was responsible for the Royal
to spy triat
Canadian Mounted Police when it
arrested Hambleton in November 1979
on suspicion of espionage.
Lawrence told reporters in Ottawa he
was not informed at the time that the
professor was a double agent.
Hambleton, who has dual Canadian
and British nationality, was arrested by
Canadian police in November 1979, and
evidence indicating espionage was
found at his office and home and at his
mother's home. But Canadian Solicitor
General Robert Kaplan told
questioners in the House of Commons in
Ottawa Tuesday that evidence was in-
sufficient to charge him under
Canada's Official Secrets Act. Kaplan
said the law needed a major overhaul.

Cohen was appointed Secretary of
Health, Education and Welfare by
President Johnson in 1968. He is the
only person to serve as assistant
secretary, undersecretary and
secretary of HEW.
In addition to being a former dean of::

Cohen was a University professor of -
