Use Brush In War Against Tooth Decay (Editor's Note: Perhaps the most consistent health problem children face is that of dental health. The News-Hemld, In cooperation with the Bay County Dental Association,' i» present* ing a series of articles on how parents can deal with this prob< lem.) Cigarettes Higher; People Expected To Keep Puffing By United Press Internnttona) Cigarette prices are goin? up, but likely will have little effect on consumption. Price hikes announced by four major manufacturers in the last four days likely will raise prices to consumers by a penny or more a pack at the supermarket and perhaps as much as an extra nickle a pack at vending machines. Smokers now pay from less than 35 cents per pack in Southern tobacco states to as much as 70 ct ^nts in New York. "I'll just pay more and keep smoking, probably more." said Sheila Hammers, a Seattle cocktail waitress. Liggett and Myers, Brown & Williamson, and Philip Morris announced this week they were boosting wholesale prices from 20 cents to 35 cents per thousand cigarettes. The nation's biggest cigarette manufacturer, R.J. Reynolds—with 32 per cent of domestic sales- remained silent and declined comment on the price hikes by other companies. Tobacco industry sources noted, however, that when one or more more major manufacturers hike prices, the others usually follow quickly. Tobacco sold at record-level prices during virtually all of the auction season on the early fall flue-cured markets, and manufacturers also had to pay more for burley and the foreign tobaccos that are blended with the domestic bright leaf. Higher prices reflected a realization among buyers that farmers must spend more money on mechanization, labor, pest control and other costs of production John C. Maxwell Jr. of Oppenheimer & Co., of New York, a recognized authority on cigarette consumption, predicts sales will continue to grow at the rate of about 2 per cent a year for the next few years. "I don't think a penny will make a difference to tho public," said George Benson, a .San Francisco wholesaler. "The individual fellow pays price.* differing from one to five cents now. Maybe it will make a difference to the lady who buys cartons in the supermarket, but I don't think so." Benson said he didn't know exactly what the new prices will be in California, where current prices range fronj 37 to 42 cents in supermarkets and about 50 cents in vending machines. "We expect thi first ones to announce may change their prices again in view of what their competition does." In Philadelphia, most mn- chine and over-the-counter ciga-! cents a pack. A pack five years ago cost from 35 to 40 cents.' In Michigan, where cigai'ettes 28 to .30 cents a pack, the cost without the new increase, is usually 45 cents, 50 cents in rette prices range from 55 to 601 sold five years ago in stores for many machines. One Moment On Top Floor, Next On Bottom ALAMEDA, Calif. (UPI) — One moment Donna LcClaire was on the third floor of the Tahoe Aparments. Suddenly, she was on ground level. The collaspe of the building in Wednesday night's crash of a Navy fighter plane left the top floor olo.^e to the ground and rescuers wore able to save Miss LoCIaire's life. But her boy friend, Alden Dean. Hines, 24, died in the rubble. Miss LeClaire, 20, and Hines, both Nez Perce Indians from Pendleton, Ore., were sitting together watching television when the plane hit. "There was a bright flash," she recounted from her hospital bed Thursday. "It got dark. There was smoke ,nnd dust everywhere, "I started yelling for help and for Alden. I heard him reply: 'I'm here. Get this off me.' Then nothing." Essentially, you must develop good home oral hygiene habits to effectively clean the teeth it least once a day to disrupt the plaque-forining process. And, of course, you should continue to have periodic professional check-ups to make sure your efforts are keeping, things under control. Learning the basics of a good home program begins with the disclosing tablet. These tablets are mad<i up of harmless vegetables dyes that stain plaque. After chewing a tablet, rinse your mouth out with water. Then observe the areas that are stained so you can see just where the plaque is located. You might want to use a mouth mir- lor to see the back sides of the teeth. The toothbrush. If used properly, will remove a major portion of plaque. Use an end- rounded, soft-bristled brush and gently scrube the outside and Inside surfaces of the teeth until the stain is gone. Then, vigorously scrub the biting surfaces on the tops of the teeth. Now, examine the teeth to see where stained areas still remain. Most likely, you will find the greatest concentration in the crevices between the teeth. These areas can be cleaned by using dental floss. The floss should be worked between the teeth and each side of the tooth should be scraped by the floss, A word of caution: Let your dentist show you exactly how to use floss. Improper usage can injure sensitive gum tissue. And, tho dentist will also recommend waxed or unwaxed floss, depending on your individual need. If you like, you can complete the cleaning process by using a water-jet irrigator to flush out any oral debris that may still remain in the mouth. Once the disclosing tablet was shown where plaque is hiding, you only need to use the tablets on a periodic basis, just to check up on your oral hygiene practices. Of course, as stated earlier, you still should have regular check-ups for calculus removal and so the dentist can catch any dental problems that may be starting before they become serious, , ^ And. it doesn't matter what age you begin the plaque removal program. Children can be taught the method when they're quite young, and adults can begin at any age. It's never too early or too late to protect your oral health.
