The hearings also examined the amount of income poor people must pay for food, the proliferation of what bearing participants usually castigated as "junk foods," and many other fears and even resentments. The hearings were chaired by Senators George McGovern (D-S.D.) and Charles H. Percy (R-lll.). Prom the reports by hundreds by committees of experts, we've culled out some of the facts and perspectives that may be useful to you in planning your own family's nourishment and food spend- in*. While recent runaway prices of wheat and other grains have subsided, we're not out of the woods yet because of world needs and even the threat of famine in some countries. The availability and cost of grains is, of course, vital since they are a basic foodstuff used both for direct consumption and in producing meat, poultry, eggs, and other protein foods. · * * THUS, YOU may not be able to expect the present reduced prices on meat, poultry and eggs to continue.

The bargain wheat deal with Russia was specifically criticized. The current inflation has hit low-income consumers especially hard because of the relatively sharp rise in the traditionally lower-price staples such as rice, beans, grain products, and margarine. But even when families do have enough money for an adequate diet they often make poor choices: overspending for snack foods with heavy content of sugar, fats and low- nutrition starches. THESE POOR food choices have become a serious threat both to medical and dental health. Many doctors and dentists at the hearings recited specific effects such as obesity, heart disease and teeth loss. Undoubtedly, many of the doctors and nutritionists at the conference seemed to consider that many American families are nutritional ignoramuses, as some said. Some of the consumer representatives, however, believe that the public really needs more information about what it is hnyiaf it processed foots. To correct this kaowtodfe gap. a coMwn- er pa»et ehaired by Esther Peter**, President of the National Consumers League, urged that packages provide three kinds of information: (1) the nutrients (protein, vitamins and minerals) provided by this particular food; (2) the percentages of actual ingredients such as how much chicken in canned chicken soup and how much meat hi canned beef stew; (3) the official quality grade, such as whether the product is Grade A, B, C or whatever the standard is. IN THEIR criticism of some low-grade processed foods, consumer representatives at the hearing were especially resentful of promotion of high-sugar cereals and beverages to children. Suggested remedies ranged from banning all TV commercials to children to banning commercials for any products with more than 30 per cent sugar by weight or 10 per cent volume. Conference participants could not agree on the best method of regulating the promotions to children but all indicated concern that parents, possibly through lack of knowledge, did not seem able to control children's insistence on such products.

IMTRTIVIIILOTIffWM* DOT fS-2IDrlT.-1MT MINI niM IMUWMBT By Eric Pace NEW YORK - Sometimes it's made from yak hair, sometimes from silicone, sometimes from the locks of Siblian women. It's favored, for different reasons, by fashion experts, undertakers and bank robbers. It's that cherished adornment of 18th-century Fashion plates, the toupee; and it's catching on among modern American men: sales of various toupee models, less elegantly known as hairpieces, have increased by about 30 per cent in many cities during the last year or so, interviews around the nation show. "Seven years ago I was bald and self-conscious about it, said Rodriguez, a 45-year- old Miami salesman, "so I bought a $350 hairpiece -- and I was self-conscious about that. But now so many men are wearing hairpieces that nobody notices mine any more." The underlying reason for the growth in popularity of toupees, the interviews suggest, is that recent technological advances have made them a cleaner and less obvious way for baldish men to look younger. Psychologically, it helps ease the anxieties of middle age. "I wanted some hair on my head, that's all," said Glen L. Swanson, a Chicago executive. Swanson, 33, keeps three toupees. "There's one for every occasion," he explained. "Now I'm more like the people I work with, and I'm more comfortable." IT'S MAINLY in California and New York that the contemporary toupee has proven most popular, although lately it has been spreading across the great open spaces of middle America. "When men wear hairpieces," said Dr. Harvey Kaye, a New York psychiatrist who has made a study of the phenomenon, "it reflects their not being comfortable with their own masculinity; they have the idea that to be masculine means to be virile in the cultural stereotype, that masculinity means youthful vigor and muscles; that they don't accept themselves for what they are." Over the centuries, artificial hair has generally been a plaything of the privileged. Tbe survey showed that it still .appeals largely to prosperous Americans. It was a sign of the times when two bandits chose Charles Alfieri's Manhattan wig shop last month as a holdup target aid plucked 12,911 from the cash register and the customers. Specialty shops such as Alfieri's are only a part of the complex merchandising phenomenon that has come to be called the "hair industry." Hair transplant operations and sales of articial hair in general have increased in recent years (the demand for regular wigs, however, which cover much of the head, has now become distinctly patchy). Here in New York, sales of full wigs are largely in longish styles and largely to young men - including soldiers or reservists who keep Uiefc real hair cut short. BUT HAIRPIECES have a wide appeal "because they're the most natural way" to wear false hair, a hairpiece specialist, known as Mr. Anthony, said at Bergdorf Goodman. Hajrpiece orders at the store have tripled in the last three years, a spokesman said. Mr. Anthony estimated that 25 per cent more New York men are wearing hairpieces now than two years ago. In Hollywood. Herb Yerman, proprietor of a hairpiece emporium on Sunset Boulevard; said that in toupee sales "the curve is going straight up." with business 38 per cent, better in January. 1974 than 12 months before. In the Chicago suburb of Niles. Leonard V. Hampton assured a recent visitor to his studio, "hairpieces today are made much better, and they're not detectable." In Oak Park, Mich., a suburb of Detroit, Allan Benjamin, the co-proprietor of Wonder Wigs of Oak Park, said, "We're having a hair revolution; now, with the improved quality, we're getting a large following of older men" to go with the middle-aged and the young men who already wear hairpieces. _· OW COST AUTO LOAN BANK OF WEST VIRGINIA ^ TENNESSEE AT ROANE MEMBER FDIC Eat Well...and Lose That Fat 1 AN EFFECTIVE PLAN tO LOSE UGLY FAT NOW...
