(UP)—Miles from the Philadelphia industrial center, on a Uny v peaceful farm, three scientists are conducting experiments which; : -some day may produce a curt? for cancer. Div"Leonard G. Rowntree. formerly professor of; medicine at the University of Minnesota and direc- w>- of clinical investigation at the . Mayo CHnic, Rochester. Minn.. Is directing the experiments on cancer, which annually causes more deaths in America than any other ailment except, heart dteuasH. The project.„ wa.s started three 'yeare ago. when members of the Philadelphia 'Jn.sLiuio for Medical Research, in expt-riments with Vi- tmin B, discovered that wheat t?erni oil produced cancer in rats. Tm- research workers lht»n dR- viseii a plan by v.'hlch ruts were treated with the oil to produce cancer for purposes of study. During the experiments, two explosive fires occurred in open stills where ether .was used as a fat solvent in. distilling the crude oil. The scientists decided to distill the oil In closed vats, but, much to their astonishment, the rats no longer developed the disease under this method. Last spring, they went back to the old method of. distilling the product. They rented the Malvern farm and continued the work where no outside persons would be endangered by possible explosions. , Whether the group has been suc- .cessful again in producing the disease in the rodents has not been revealed. Dr. Rowntree announced that at the present no report would be made public. [ •""> • ' "'":,'.
