man, Henry's boss bet another

SEARCHING for a reason for
this increase, he says, people have
looked to smoking.
Dr. Robert Berry of the Medi-
cal School feels that statistical
analysis interpreted in this way
indicates "there may be a-great-
er than coincidental relationship
between heavy smoking and can-r
cer of the lungs."
Researchers are extracting sub-
stances from cigarette smoke and
testing to see if they produce can-
cerous growths in experimental
animals. Dr. Berry pointed out
that while there has been a rise in
lung cancer there are things other
than smoking to be considered.
Other sources of contamination
such as industrial wastes and gaso-
line exhaust have been suggested
as possible causes for increase in
cancer of the lungs.

THE AMERICAN Cancer Soci-
ety summarized a report by lead-
ing researchers on the controver-
sial question. "Evidence to date
justifies the suspicion that cig-
arette smoking does, to a degree
as yet undetermined, increase the
likelihood of developing cancer of
the lung," the summary said.
Dr. Charles S. Cameron, medical
and scientific director of the so-
ciety, in view of the pronounce-
ment, advised cigarette smokers
not to smoke if they were young
non-smokers or had not seriously
acquired the habit.
Dr. Cameron stressed that there
is no conclusive evidence against
either cigarette smoke or smoggy
