Cigarette sales jump WASHINGTON (AP) - The Federal Trade Commission reported today that 1973 cigarette sales increased 4 per cent over the previous year, the largest jump in 10 years. More significantly, it said, the sale of low-tar cigarettes jumped 40 per cent in the same period. The FTC said the overall increase, the fifth in a row since 1968, was the largest since the surgeon general's warning on smoking hazards 10 years ago. However, Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said he thought both the health bill and trade legislation could be passed this year. On other matters, Ford said: —He plans to sign a massive extension of the Elementary and Second Education Act, despite "reservations" about some of its provisions. But he said he will oppose "excessive funding" in implementing the measure. —He plans to continue the Nixon efforts for detente with Russia, reopened relations with China and peace in the Middle East. —His administration plans "hot pursuit of tough laws to prevent illegal invasions of privacy in both government and private activities."
