The American Cancer Society began a campaign to eliminate smoking among youths by the year 2000, saying it wants to "change the health habits of an entire generation." Spokesmen said in Philadelphia that they hope to reduce smoking among young people by 50% by 1990 and to eliminate it by 2000. The campaign will especially target vocational-technical students because they are more likely to smoke than their college-preparatory counterparts, spokesman John Seffrin said.
