FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Smokers More Likely To Develop Cancer, Researcher Declares By ROBERT E. GEIGER WASHINGTON (AP) — A government researcher said today heavy cigarette smokers now 40 years old have from 5 to 15 times greater a chance than nonsmokers of developing lung cancer before they are 80. He is Sidney J. Cutler, staff statistician at the Nationtl Cancer Institute at nearby Bethesda, Md., who emphasized that nobody has proved cigarettes cause lung cancer but added: ''It is fairly clear that whatever the casual mechanism may be, smokers are more likely to develop lung 1 cancer than nonsmokers." Cutler's paper was one of several, dealing with relationships between cigarette smoking and cancer cases, prepared for the International Congress of Pathology, a conference on the causes of disease which is being attended by specialists from many parts of the world. Varying Reports The American Cancer Society announced last June that one of its studies showed that cigarette smokers 50 to 70 years old died earlier, in groups that were studied, than other men. But many scientists have said there is no conclusive evidence -that cigarettes themselves bring on cancer. The tobacco iiadustry bas said more study is needed to determine causes of cancer and. heart disease, and bas set up an industry study committee, headed by Dr. Clarence Cook Little. Little has said he subscribed to a statement that "one cannot at this time exclude the possibility that heavy cigarette smoking and the tendency to cancer are both expressions of a more fundamental cause of a constitutional or hormone nature." Dr. Johannes Clemrnesen of the Danish Cancer Registry. Copenhagen, in a statement prepared for today's meeting, said: "In spite of many factors which may be expected to obscure the results it appears that there is a distinct correlation between the number of cigarettes consumed in the various countries . . . and the height of their national mortality from lung canner." Dr. Nils Ringertz of Sabbateberg Hospital, Stockholm,' said it is doubtful if such things as air pollution by smoke and similar substances are important factors, on a worldwide basis, in the rise in lunc cancer deaths. ' He added "there is strong but so far not quite complete evidence that tobacco smoking, especially cigarette smoking, is the most im portant exogenous (external) fac tor causing the main part of the lung cancer cases." Another panel "speaker. Pao Chang-hou of Hong Kong, said in his statement that clinical evidence and work with mice have not proved a relationship between to bacco and cancer.

He said his statistical studies show these prospects faced by men now 40 years old of reaching age 80 without suffering lung cancer: Nonsmokers — 6 men out of 1,000 will suffer lung cancer. Light smokers cup to Va pack of cigarettes a day> — 25 in 1,000 will get lung cancer. Those smoking about one pack a day — 49 out of 1,000 will get lung cancer. More tnan one pack a day — 80 out of 1,000 men will get lung cancer. Cutler estimated the risk may range from 5 to 15 times greater for the heavy smokers — more than one pack a day — compared with'the nonsmofcers.

W).— Balloonist Garrett Cashman's 21-mile frolic in the clouds — climax of a boyhood dream — has landed him in jail as an unlicensed pilot. The 26-year-old Cashman, who does stage hypnotism off and on, soared an hour and a half yesterday below two grapelike clusters of 60 gas-filled rubber balloons. He said he broke through the clouds at 3,000 feet with his homemade rig, and reported that he reached 6,200 feet before the sun's heat began expanding and popping the balloons. He snipped a few balloons off and landed safely in a tomato patch. Cashman described the trip as "wonderful all around." His wife, Mildred, helped with the preparations but she called it "crazy." State police, sharing Mrs. Cashman's view, charged him with being, an unlicensed pilot, operating an unregistered aircraft, and operating an uncertificated aircraft. He pleaded innocent before Peace Justice George Bigsbee of Guilderland and a hearing was se for Sept. 17. In lieu of $100 bail he was sent to Albany County Jail. Hundreds watched goggle-eyed along the way as Cashman's con traption soared from suburban Westmere to a farm near Valatie down, the Hudson River. He rode on a piece of plywood 15 inches square, mounted on t spokeless bicycle wheel swinging beneath two bunches of war sur plus rubber balloons. Each was si: feet across and contained 113 cubic feet of gas. A power company crew tapped main to fill the balloon and Cashman laid out $43.30 for the gas and labor. An opened parachute was slung between the two clusters — jus in case. People tend to be bigger the far! ther away from the tropics they 1 live.

All may not be clear sailing for the millionaire New Deal - Fair Deal • stalwart, however, because some powerful backers of Rep. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. threaten a floor fight ai the Democratic State Convention. But the leaders' endorsement probably has assured Harriman of a majority of the delegates.

Balch and Democratic National Committeeman Carmine G. De- Sapio, who also is leader of Tam] many Hall, the Manhattan party organization. The statement bore the inscription that it was "concurred in" by Sen. Herbert H. Lehman, who is vacationing in Idaho, and New York Mayor Robert F. Wagner, who has rejected bids he seek the gubernatorial nomination. Persuasion Fails The statement was issued at I Democratic State Headquarters [ after several top party leaders had ! failed in private efforts to persuade j Roosevelt, the only other active contender, to bo\v out in favor of Harriman. Several upstate Democratic leaders declared their continued support of Roosevelt for the nomination. Harriman, 62, issued a brief statement last night saying he was gratified at the support of the four top party leaders. He said that, if nominated, he would lead a vigorous fight for the Democratic party's principles, which "I deeply believe are vital to the welfare of the people of our state." Karriman. a traditional Repub- j lican, has been a Democrat since jhe voted for the late Alfred E. i Smith for president in 1928. j As a possible Harriman-Roose- jvelt convention fight threatened, i no Republican opposition developed against U.S. Sen. Irving M. Ives who has been tabbed for that i party's gubernatorial nomination joy Gov, Thomas E. Dewey and other GOP leaders. Nomination of the 58-year-old senator appeared certain. Gave Reasons Roosevelt told newsmen he had no comment on the Democratic - leaders' declaration for Harriman. JHe declined to say whether he I still was a candidate. ] In a campaign speech here last j night, however, Roosevelt made I promises "if I become governor" land gave reasons '"why I am a ' candidate for governor." | In the face of the swing to Har- Iriman, strong backing for Roose- jvelt came from two powerful up| state Democratic leaders: i Daniel P. O'Connell, Albany leati- I er, said the Albany County con- Ivention delegation, would "put Roosevelt in nomination and vote for him and nothing will stop us." O'Connell, who has bucked the party high command at times, said 4 'I don't think there is »ny on« else certain to win but Roosevelt."
