Probe Cancerous Growth
By CAROLE FRANK
One of the more important re
search projects being conducted
at Nebraska is the cancer research
project. Dr. Donald Pace, head of
the physiology department, and his
assistants are working on.
Dr. Pace, in an. interview with
the Daily Nebraskan, said he got
his first opportunity to actually ex
periment with cell growth as a
graduate student at Duke Univer
sity. It was not until after Dr. Pace
came to the University in 1942 that
he set up the special research pro
ject. "At the beginning," Dr. Pace
said, "we at the University didn't
begin our project as a special re
search institute." One of the main
things the men were searching for
was the basic reactions in cell
growth, whether the cell is nor
mal of abnormal. They worked
with protozoan cells to study the
tissue count and growth.
Money for the Institute has come
from three principal sources:
The Cooper Foundation, U.S. Pub
lic Health Service and the Anna
Glock Cancer Fund. Establish
ment of the Institute was an
nounced early in 1952 following
receipt of a $20,000 gift made by
the Cooper Foundation.
Since then, the Institute has re
ceived altogether about $50,000
in three years and is now settled
The role of Veta Louise Sim
mons will be played by Stephanie
Sherdeman who is making her
first appearance in a University
Theater production. Miss Sherde
man has been active in Univer
sity laboratory productions. The
original role of Vita Louise was
taken by Josephine Hull both in
the play and later in the movie.
Other members of the cast in
clude Dixie Lee Helms, Clare
Cooper, Pat Patterson, John Crow
ell, Keith Williams, James Baker,
Janet Boucher, Clancy Croft and
Eric Prewitt. Technical director of
the play will be Harry Steiber.
"Harvey" is about a .congenial
alcoholic named Elwood Dowd
whose companion is a six foot tall
pink rabbit named Harvey who is
invisible to everyone but Elwood.
Elwood lives with his sister, a
spinster named Veta Louise Sim
mons who finds Harvey an un

enjoyed the sixth longest run in

in a new laboratory home in the
basement of the remodeled Plant
Industry building on the College
of Agriculture campus.
Then at that same time the Na
tional Cancer Institute was able
to isolate a single cancerous cell
and grow it outside the body. Later
this same cell lost its malignancy
over a period of years. This was
the beginning of several pure
strains of cells the research men
have here at Nebraska.
The research scientists use hu
mans, mice, pure liver and skin
cells to study the cells as they
grow, the changes in growth and
metabolism and the cell structure

000 to find out if tobacco had any
effects on lung tissue. Dr. Pace
stated, "we found out in our re
search that there definitely is an ef
fect on the lung tissue. Tobacco
and air pollution together will
eventually bring about cancer.
Sources prove there has been an
increase in the number of males
who smoke and who also contract
cancer in the past 15 years. Be
tween 1940-50 there was a 133 per
cent increase of cancer in males
who smoke. "I believe males have
been more susceptible to cancer
because they have been smoking
much longer than females and that
is why there aren't as many cases
of cancer in females," said Dr.
