"In attempting to meet this need (for a central source of information about cancer), the magnitude of the undertaking has been more and more fully realized as the work of collecting and formulating the data has proceeded. it has been neesswary to touch upon practically every phase of the cancer problem, to state theories, to emphasize facts, to review the work and opinions of those who are qualified to speak with authority, and to maintain throught an attitude of suspended judgment pending proof."
