FTC to Resume Fag Pack Warning WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Tra-de Commission plans soon to revive its seven- year-old fight to require cigarette makers to say in advertising that smiotoing is harmful to The expected approach this lime is a complaint against manuf'aciturerts charging that failure to warn of smokimg's health haaards in cigarette ads is deceptive. Warnings already are required by law on cigarette packs. A formal aflnoiincem'emt of tfe proposed complaint is expected after July 1, when a congressional ban on health warning regulation by the FTC expires. The FTC, which has backed health warnings in cigarette advertising since the 1964 report by the U.S. Surgeon General linking cigarette smoking and lung oamcer, has been frustrated at every turn by Congress. Am FTC spokesman said Monday the agency's staff has recommended a plan of attack, but wouldn't say publicly What it is. The five-man commission has not acted on the recommendation ais yet, he added. Congress (has (forbidden the FTC to make any Induisitry-wide cigarette advertising irule without giving it six mon'tihs notice. But the FTC is expected to try to skirt fohis by exercising its auiihority to move against ifiaise and misleading advertising, a neJialble sfoaifif siouroe said. According to some reports, ithe commission stalf feels that there is sufficient evidence linking smoking to lung and heart Pago 10 Garden City Telegram Thursday, June 24, 1971 DUCK WALL'S C@LORFIH SHOP AND SAVE BEDDING SALE NEEDIEWOVEN BLANKET 50% Polyester-50% Rayon Full size 72"x 90".

Shodily alter the Surgeon General's report came omit in January 1964, the PTC proposed a rule that would require in both advertising and on packages the warning that "cigarette smoking is dangerous to hiealth and may cause death from oamcer and other diseases." But before it could go into effect, Congress passed a biM requiring *he warniing on packs: "Caution, cigarette smoking miaiy be hazardous to your health." At the same time, it imposed on the FTC a four- year ban against further regulation of 'advertising. The regulation proceedings were revived atfiter expinaltion of the four-year period, but the commission held up a final decision because Congress was then considering the legislation that banned cigarette advertising from radio and television. In its final form, the bill ba- misfed cigarette ads from the airwaves, mMy strengthened the waiminig on packs and prevented for another two years any action by the FTC on faeaMh warnings in advertising. * * '* Cigarette Smoking Rate Static WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumption of cigaroettes in 1971 is expected to slightly top last year's 536 bMon but the per capita consumption in the U.S. may be about equal to last year's 3,985, an Agriculture Department report indicates. The report made no fcrmia! prediction on per capita consumption but a department spokesman said privately if jresent trends hold up, it will je the first time sines 1966 there lhas not been a decline in p&r capita consuimiption. The per capita consumption was 4,280 in 1967, 4,186 HI 1968, 3,993 in 1969 .and 3,985 last year. The report also said the carryover of U.S. leaf tobacco wil remain much the same as last year's 3.68 bMon pounds, the Lowest stocks since 1953, despite record high U S.. and foreign cigarette output. In July-December 1971, iflhls report said exports may equal the 300-mliffion-pound level of a year earlier. It said favoraMe economic conditions continue to increase the demand for tobacco in the major West Eu ropean markets where much of our exports go. Work Ahead for 50,000 Recipients NEW.YORK (AP) — About 50,000 welfare (recipients will baive to work for the city in order to keep receiving public support alter July 1, Human Resources Administrator Jute M. Sugarman says. Sugevman explained thait stricter wefllaire laws passed by *he state iagisitaiture require employable welfare receipts to go to work. If they cannot find private jobs, city agencies will have to employ 'them on public works projects in return for regular relief check. They would work as pana- professionals in hospitals and mjaintenam'Ce men in schools and parks. The administrator noted that regular city employ- es would not be displaced by ithe recipients, who would be doing jobs the city hasn't been able to 'afford in the past. Sugarman said that aibout 60,000 of the city's neairly 1.2 million welfare recipients would be classified as employialblia under the new regulations.

The public ft tired of paying for "New Supermarkets" which cost over a half millio'n and up. And you know who pays for them—their customers. Last week there wasn't a new supermarket opened in the U.S. That's the second or third time it has happened this yea r. They used to open 20 to 25 every week, for 20 years. People are beginning to learn (many have for years) that you can get most everything you want in a "Stoner Store" or one that size much quicker and at cheap, and we don't have an extra 5,000 items to tempt you into spending a lot more money. Even though Stoner 'No 1 . I stays open until 10 p.m. or later, last Friday night we had customers much later. It had to be a skinny fellow that could crawl between 7-inch bars. He got over 20 cases of beer. He didn't drink it inside or he would never got back through the bars. Then they set the building on fire.
