The California commission on judicial qualifications was created by a constitutional amendment approved by a 3-1 margin in the 1960 general election.

It was Only the second time in the commissions 12-year history that it has made a removal recommendation which must be ratified by the state supreme court after briefing and hearing.

A wire photo Benz pyrene is not Likely cancer cause by Brian Sullivan a science writer new York a two leading researchers reported today that Benz pyrene a chemical in cigarettes and Urban air suspected As a cause of lung cancer May not be guilty. The doctors said a study of 5,939 . Roofing workers who breathe great amounts of Benz pyrene from Coal tar pitch and Asphalt a the rough equivalent of the Benz pyrene in i5 packs or 705 cigarettes a Day a showed about the same incidence of lung cancer As the general population. The report came from or. Irving r. Sezikoff a specialist in environmental Medicine at it. Sinai school of Medicine in new York and or. E. Cuyler Hammond statistician for the american cancer society at the 164th National meeting of Justice Murray Draper the american chemical society. A Elf a High level of occupational exposure to Benz pyrene by Way of inhalation results in Little if any increase in the risk of lung cancer a they said a then it seems unlikely that the extremely Small amounts of Benz pyrene in cigarette smoking can account for the High degree of association Between cigarettes and lung a it also seems unlikely a he continued a that a Small Benz pyrene consent of air in Urban areas has an appreciable effect upon lung cancer death Benz pyrene is a known cause of skin cancer and because of this the suspicion built up that the chemical might also be a cause of lung cancer. That Benz pyrene does indeed cause skin cancer was demonstrated or. Sezikoff said at a meeting with officials of the roofers Union where nine of la Union vice presidents had had skin cancer on their arms and hands. The study included men who were members of the roofers Union on Jan. I 1960, and who had been members for at least nine years. One third had been in the Trade for 20 years or More. After tracing 96 per cent of the men the statistics for the six years of the study had not shown any significant lung cancer increase. There were 43 lung cancer deaths in the group and in a group that size 36 deaths normally could have been expected. The doctors did not consider the difference significant.
