Your vl/ortk — Please Anyone who has recently pw- chnsed a new car or is planning to do so is probably aware that it will cost more this year. One of the reasons is that new autos arc being equipped with safety features which have been made mandatory by federal rulings. Of course the consumer is picking up the tab. Is he getting his money's worth? Interviewed on this question were three men associated with local automobile dealerships. Here is what they had to say: "Personally, / don't think that the safety features so far are worth the price increase that we are having to pay for them. But since they are included in the price, the people ought to make use of them —such as the seat belt fasteners." — Raymon Carlock, 1620 Martin, BlytheYille. "Basically I think most of the safety features put on ears in the past two years like seat belts, padded dashes, visors and so forth are good. However, the price increase for these items has been overdone a little. The manufacturers should have stood more of the cost instead of passing it on to the consumer." —Bob Littrell, 1900 Meadow Lane, Blytheville. •«t •••••)••**••••»»*•••*••••••••••••••••••••% Sbow Beat by Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NBA |- the jealousy of the other Wdl Overlooked by the general the need to keep out of trouble" press in covering Jimmie Rod' gers' troubles were two curious facts: First, his wife had brain sur- Dino says he never was tempt ed to use his name and position to lord it over his peers.

To a rubber bridge player, 10 points means nothing at all. Once in awhile, if he is playing for money and scoring a rubber to tile nearest hundred, it may mean an extra point, but, all in all, he pays no attention to such trifles. To a duplicate player it may mean the difference between a top score and an average, and many duplicate players will play a slam in no-trump in an effort to get the extra 10 points South was one of that type. He decided that he would make just as many tricks at no-trump as at hearts and that he wanted those 10 points. South was right from the first standpoint.

Ridges ideally suited for maintaining lower dentures have smooth, well - rounded, medium high crests, with gently sloping sides, and adequately protected by thick, firm, padding of gum tissue. But, alas, ideal ridges are rarely seen. What dentists usually have to work with are the normal misshapen ridges, even sometimes no ridge at all. Of these many types tfiere is one that probably causes most pain for denture wearers: the inverted "V" shape. This ridge has a sharp, jagged crest and slightest pressure of hard denture material on the gums against the knife - edge bone causes severe pain.

Lessening biting pressure by use of narrow back teeth in the lower denture, and perfectly adjusting the bite, are two steps to relieve pain. If this fails to give complete relief, then surgical intervention may become necessary to reduce and round out the sharp edge. Don't hesitate to have this done if your dentist considers it advisable because it can help tremendously. Also, it's a rather simple technique for patient and dentist. When gums are healed, the new pink denture material added underneath and the bite again adjusted so that pressures are balanced.
