HOGAN, D.M.D. HOT AND COLD OF IT Hot foods and coid drinks may be enjoyable together, but there is evidence that this combination can result in dental damage. Studies have found that intensive cycles of hear and cold can cause liny cracks in tooth enamel, inviting tooth decay and possible tooth fracture. Heat alone seems to do no harm. Cold is the villain, and when warm teeth are suddenly exposed fo cold, fhe temperature drop can be shocking. Thus, if your after- dinner coffee at 140 degrees is followed by ice crecm at 35 degrees, the ename! contracts severely. The resulting pressure on the shrinking enamel may moke It crack. Repeated exposure to such temperature changes increases the possibility of tooth fracture- Comprehensive Dental 1 Comprehensive Uentaf C One sure way to injure teeth is to chew cracked ice. The physical pressure from chewing hard ice, combined with the sudden temperature drop, subjects teeth to dangerously high levels of stress. If you wear a full set of dentures, there's no problem. They come Out at night anyway — but why take a chance with the ones Mother Nature provided? Prepared by Dr. Donald C.

HOGAN, D.M.D. Heatherbrae Sq., 1480 Indian Springs Rd, Indiana, PA 349-2880 Care For The Entire Family Congress split over water pollution WASHINGTON (AP) — The two houses of Congress are taking distinctly different political pathways as they move toward the common objective of reducing pollution in the nation's waterways. Commutes in both the Senate and the House have produced Clean Water Act amendments that would continue grants to states for sewers and water treatment facilities in fiscal HI86 at $2.4 billion, the same as existing law. But the similarity ends when it comes to dividing up the money. The House Public Works and Transportation Committee, following traditional practice, has designated 21 projects in 12 states to get first crack at the money. Three of the projects are in New Jersey, the home of two powerful Democrats in the water and sewer grant process -committee chairman James Howard and Robert Roe, chairman of the subcommittee that initially worked on the House bill. The designated projects carry a price tag of about S700 million, not including potentially the largest — a huge treatment plant for San Diego to combat raw sewage flowing across the border from Tijuana, Mexico. Depending on whether the United States can convince Mexico to share the expense, the plant could cost U.S. taxpayers as much as S750 million, according to Dave Smallen. a committee spokesman. All but one of the enumerated projects is in a state represented by one or more of the committee's members. The exception is S250 million for construction of treatment facilities along Puget Sound in Washington. In the Senate, the bill approved by the Republican-controlled Environment and Public Works Committee designates no specific one-state projects, although the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay are listed for special funding. Its controversial feature is a new formula for slicing up the money pie that would take almost $290 million away, from 19 states, most of them bordering the Great Lakes, and shift it to states in the South and West. New York would lose the most. $57.5 million, or nearly one-fifth of its current level. Texas would be the biggest winner, with its share increasing from about $93 million to S127.3 million. Except for Connecticut, all New England states gain. The committee chairman is Robert Stafford, R-Vt. The new formula was devised by a subcommittee headed by John Chafee. R-R.I. The plan was approved on a 13-2 committee vote, with only one senator from a losing state — Quentin Burdick. D-N.D. — voting for it. North Dakota stands to lose $905,000. The other 12 votes came from states that would gain. Supporters of the new formula say that is fair and is based on the 1984 Environmental Protection Agency nationwide assessment of facilities needed around the nation to combat water pollution. The supporters say the existing formula is not valid because it is tied to a mid-1970s EPA assessment of needs, many of which have been satisfied by federal grant money since then. But an aide to Stafford, speaking on condition he not be identified by name, conceded the new formula is not an exact reflection of current needs but "a refinement of needs necessitated by politics." Sen. David Durenberger, R-Minn., whose state would lose $9.5 million, calls the new formula "arbitrary" and "unwarranted" and last week was looking for support for an alternative proposal that would cut shares for smaller states and return money to some larger ones, including his own. His task is to come up with a majority in the 100-member Senate, which is scheduled to debate the bill this week. Because it benefits 31 states, the committee's formula could be expected to get about 62 votes. But an aide on Chafee's subcommittee said that Durenberger's plan is attempting to split up this bloc by Crime rate dips in U.S. households WASHINGTON < AP) — The proportion of U.S. households victimized by crime last year fell to the lowest level since 1975. but still one out of every four experienced a crime of violence or theft, the government reports. Advancing longstanding theories about crime risks, a study by the Bureau of Justice Statistics found that people living in the suburbs or countryside were safer than those living in cities. The report, released Sunday, concluded that black households were more vulnerable than white households, but also found that high-income households were more likely to be victimized than middle-income households. "We estimate that 22.8 million households were affected by a burglary, motor vehicle theft or household larceny or were inhabited by someone who was raped, robbed, assaulted or who was the victim of a personal larceny." said Steven R. Schlesinger. the bureau's director. But Schlesinger also said that "there has been a gradual downward trend since this statistical measure was introduced in 1975. when 32 percent of American households were touched by crime," he said. Last year, the 22.8 million households said to have been -touched" by crime represented roughly 26 percent of the total. Noting that the overall gauge of crime's pervasiveness was at its lowest ebb in nine years. Schlesinger said: "Many believe that recent declines in crime rates are due. in part, to greater public awareness and understanding of crime, and to citizen crime prevention programs." The approximately 22.8 million households affected by crime in 1984 were about 800.000 fewer than those victimized in the preceding year and about 2 million fewer than in 1982. the report said. A household is considered '•touched" by crime if it experienced a burglary, auto theft or household larceny, or if a household member was raped, robbed, assaulted or a victim of personal larceny, the bureau said. The proportion of victimized" households fell to 26 percent of total households in 1984, compared to 27.4 percent the year before. "The 1983-1884 decrease was primarily the result of declines in burglaries and personal or household larcenies." the report said. The report was based on the bureau's National Crime Survey of some 60.000 U.S. households", or roughly 128.000 people at least 12 years of age. who were asked what crimes they experienced since the iast interview.

Whatever new formula the Senate adopts, however, will run into trouble in the House, where the bill approved by Howard's committee continues the existing formula. The whole matter will end up being resolved in a joint conference committee, where senators have generally opposed House attempts to designate specific projects in clean water bills.
