" · ; New Report Says Excessive Drinking, Smoking Dangerous WASHINGTON (AP) -- A i -new federal report says rnoder- · ate drinking may be beneficial to some people, but that heavy drinking and 'smoking combined greatly increases the risk of .mouth and throat cancer. "The wide range of devas bating problems associated 'with the use of alcohol all relate to ,excessiveness -- not moder- ·ation," said 'Dr. Morris E. Cha- ,fetz, director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and , AIcoholism\ i "This demands that we, as a ".society, begin to exercise a sufficient measure of individual and social responsibility in our use of beverage alcohol--a re- ^sponsibility that has been se .'riously lacking." ·'i The report, was sent to Con- ;gress by the Department of .!Health, Education and Welfare ' as Chafetz outlined its findings · Wednesday to a White House seminar for health writers. Cancers of t h e mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus .and primary cancer of the liver . "appear to be definitely related to heavy alcohol intake in the United States, and parts of the world where these occur with :righ frequency in men," the report said. . It found that heavy drinkers and smokers run a 15-times- grealer risk of, developing cancer of the ''mouth and throat than abstainers. MODERATION DEFINED According to the report, moderate drinking is considered to be consumption of up to three ounces of whisky, a half bottle of wine or four glasses of beer daily. Beyond that, a drinker, runs nearly 2Vi times greater risk of oral cancer, about the same as person who smokes ' 40 or more cigarettes daily, the re- port.said. Chafetz said that for reasons to researchers, risk 'of mouth the anc State Senate Modifies Tucker Ruling LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Discarding an opinion by Atty. Gen.

Attorneys for - Jones urged that the Senate require.a two-thirds vote. This was the most crucial decision in the inquiry, short of '. the vote to come on Jones him- ielf ...... The decision to require 24 votes against Jones makes the : prospect of excluding him far .-' less likely. That this was an ad~- vantage for Jones is illustrated by the fact that he' was among . those voting for the 24-vote : rule. : The rule could benefit some .- senators who feel it necessary · to vote against Jones because of pressure from their constituents but who actually wish · to keep their colleague in the Senate. Senators .who' sponsored the resolution"'calling for the' inquiry voted against the 24-vote ,.j rule, favoring, instead, requir- " ing only a majority. . · The inquiry formally begins : at 1 p.m. today.

North Garland Streets Acroti From Oak For a long time we clung to the notion that longer days called for longer drinks.That any suggestion we made for summer had to be served in-a tall glass. The neatness of that logic, J we now realize, blinded us to its flaws. Like the "" more the merrier or the bigger the better it's too pat to be true. What really matters, obviously, is not how tall a drink is but how good. So before you pack all your stubby little glasses in mothballs, you may want to try a Sunstroke. Sometimes less is more.
