Gov. William Donald Schaefer's recent announcement that he intends to ban smoking in executive-branch offices is an overdue recognition of the health hazards posed by tobacco smoke in the work place.

Experts in the field say the patient data in the nation's various cancer registries are vital to their efforts to track trends and focus research and public education. But they also complain that there are no comparable national registries for a long list of public health problems of growing concern in the United States.
