Doctor Links Lung Cancer, Smoking

By LEE MARKS
Dr. Carl V. Weller, chairman of
the University's Department of
Pathology, claimed last night "an
association b e t w e e n cigarette
smoking and bronchogenic carci-
noma (cancer of the lung) has
been established."
He r dded, "An association, how-
ever, does not necessarily imply a
casual relationship."
Speaking at t1e Wayne Univer-
sity Medical School, Dr. Weller
delivered the Wayne County Medi-
cal Society's annual Beaumont
Lecture on the subject, "Casual
Factors in Cancer of the Lung."
Extrinsic Factors
The pathologist said extrinsic
factors overshadow hereditary
ones as causes of lung cancer.
"It is fortunate," Dr. Weller
commented, "that bronchogenic
cancer does, not give evidence of
any potent hereditary factor. If
there is a hereditary pattern for
this peoplasm it . below the clini-
cal horizon."
Dr. Weller declared that the
possible connection between lung'
cancer and smoking has become "a
matter of personal concern to mil-
lions" because of the alarming up-
swing in its incidenc and also
because it is now convincingly es-
tablished that lung cancer is not a,
hereditary disease.
Smoking Under Suspicion
"This pleasant habit (smoking)
has long been under suspicion be-
cause physicians frequently noted
its association with lung cancer,"
he said.
This year's Beaumont Lecture,
33rd in the Beaumont Lecture se-
ries, was an exhaustive analysis
of all significant statistical studies
of lung cancer.
Dr. Weller included an analysis
of studies which prove the increase
o flung cancer among smokers.

genic agents" (cancer producing
substances), including c o b a l t,
nickel, arsenic and radium, Dr.
Weller said his analysi nidicates
that the increase in the number of
cases of lung cancer is "contempo-
raneous with industrial soot, bitu-
Aignous surface roads, exhaust
products 'rom internal combustion
engines and cigarette smoking."
Commenting on the opinion of
some investigators that cancer is
in some way related to hazardous
occupations such as mining or
smelting ,the pathologist said, "It
is evident that the special liability
to lung cancer on the part of
workers from small occupational
groups is an inadequate explana-

tion for the increase in this di-
sease in the past 40 years."
Dr. Weller admitted that for
years he had resisted the grow-
ing statistical pressure to link
lung cancer with cigarette smok-
ing.
But, he added, "It must be con-
cluded that, by the prospective
method of statistical study, an as-
sociation has been demonstrated
between tobacco-smoking and car-
cinoma of the lung."
Regents Vote
To Establish
Flint College
The Board of Regents voted at
their Jan. 21 meeting to establish
a senior college of the University
in Flint.
The college will take over the
present facilities of the Flint Jun-

instructed University President
Harlan H. Hatcher to prepare a
"memorandum of agreement" with
the Mint Board of Education rec-
ognizing the basic responsibility of
the Regents in exercising general
supervision of the University and
control of expenditures.

to present a pattern of admnistra-
tion and a budget to be submitted
to the state legislature.
The college will probably begin
in the fall of 1956, with a first-
year budget of $250,000.
Historical Precedent
The move has historical prece-
dent in the 1840's and later when
the University had branches in
Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and
elsewhere.
Buildings, grounds and mainten-
ance will be provided by the Jun-3
