Sees Rise In Dental Insurance CHICAGO (AP) — An official of the American Dental Association predicted today a sharp increase in dental insurance programs within the next few yearsi Herbert C. Lassister, secretary of the ADA Council on Insurance said one million Americans now are covered by some type of dental insurance. He said It is expected that 15 million persons will be covered, by such plans by 1970. He said the dental profession has taken the lead in developing prepayment programs "to insure the maintenance of professional responsibility for quality and cost control." Addressing some 100 dental society executives attending the 14th State Secretaries Management Conference, he said dental service corporations have been established in 21 states and seven have operating programs. These non-profit dental service corporations are sponsored by state dental societies and are comparable to Blue Cross-Blue Shield plans, he said. Lassister said several commercial insurance companies are test marketing individual dental insurance policies. One company, he added, is offering a dentil rider to itjs general health policy for individuals.

Freeman and British historian Arnold J. Toynbee disagreed today on whether science and technology could free the world from hunger and want. In speeches prepared for the Politics Seen ShapingCommon Market Policy WASHINGTON (AP) — The European Common Market countries are maintaining their re- restrictive farm import policies largely because of the political influence of their farmers. The Agriculture Department reached' this conclusion in a report today on an analysis of western European programs designed to make the area more self-sufficient agriculturally. The United States has protested these policies because they reduce market for some American farm products. The department said there seems to be a feeling in most Common Market countries —France, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands—that no party can get and stay in power without farmer support. "Agricultural fundamentalism is a basic part of the political structure of western Europe," the department said. "It is stronger in some Common Market countries than in others — but always strong— and is reflected in their value system and in their degree of market protection and subsidy for agriculture." The report said west European farm organizations are much more active in formulating and executing government farm policies and programs than are U.S. farm organization?. One general farm organization usually dominates a country. Commercial Atomic Power Increase Seen DENVER (AP) — Rapid development of commercial atomic power plants wall predicted Tuesday at the 31st annual Edison Electric Institution convention, by President Sherman R, Knapp of the Connecticut Light & Power Co. World Food Congress, Freeman said the world was at the door ol abundance because of agricultural advances, but Toynbee declarer science and technology could nol do the job without worldwide birth control. The congress, attended by some 1,200 delegates from more than 100 countries, moved into its second session to encourage the world's political economic, social, religious, and educational leaders to make a broad international attack on hunger. The congress, which will meet through June 38, is sponsored by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Stressing the need for action, Freeman said it is doubtful whether "the community of nations inhabiting this earth can long exist half hungry and half well-fed. "Science and technology have now—in this generation—openec the door to a potential for abundance for all," he said. Toynbee, while praising science and technology, questioned their ability to increase food .supplies ndefinitely without aid of population controls. "In the long run the campaign cannot be won unless the planet's millions of wives and husbands voluntarily decide to regulate the number of human births," he said. "We have been godlike in our slanned breeding of our domesticated plants and animals, but we have been rabbitlike planned breeding of he historian said. Want things?
