According to his statistic, 50 per cent of all Americans never go to the dentist and half of those have severe tooth problems. This is particularly true of people over 40. Once teeth deteriorate, he says, a person would have to spend anywhere between $1,000 to $2,000 putting his mouth back into decent shape. "Most people," he explained, "don't have that kind so their teeth gt items 65 Table scrap 66 Large cask 68 Roman numeral 70 Cravat 71 Tennis star 114 Assistant 72 Italian 116 Ridge of measure drift 73 Actions 117 Girl's 74 Accumulate name 75 Redecorate 118 Vault 76 Weather 120 Labium word 122 Kiln (var.) of money, worse. "But the thing is, dental insurance is going to cause a revolution in the field of dentistry. Right now there are some 22 million Americans covered with some form of insurance. And this is giving the older person a chance to get work done in his mouth." D e n t a l procedures simple, Dubilier declares.

He notes it takes a good ceramacist approximately five hours to build a bridge, depending on many teeth he's constro So it's labor that brings high costs. MAJOR PROBLEM "But if people start getting coverage from a dental plan they're going to get the work done. In the future," he says, "this is going to be a major problem. "Dentists up until five years ago were only 60 per cent occupied. Because of dental plans, ihis has changed, with most dentists being between 80 to 90 per cent occupied. Dentists have reached a point where they've just about used up their capacity. Although there's a 2 per cent increase in dental population a year, that doesn't even come close to satisfying what's happening in terms of demand." His statistics . also forecast that between 80 and 100 million people will be covered by I960 owing to recent. I rends for unions to negotiate dental plans in their packages. Within the next five years almost everyone can expect some form of dental coverage, he says. VBut assuming," he continues, "60 million new patients are added to the roster, and o! the 60 million some 25 million need major work done, tha means something like five vis its per person. So you're adding 125 million visits over am above what dentists now have just for people having major work done. The dental popu lation can't handle it. There's no way they can take 125 mil lion new chair patients. That', really a problem and no one' come up with solutions yet." NOT RECOMMENDED For those seeking insurance Dnbilier docs not recommend the majority of existing private companies. His reason -- cost. He says the primary need for insurance is in case of a catastrophe. But in the event a serious accident should happen requiring dentistry, one's medical insurance would coyer it. So the purpose of dental insurance has to be different. "Most of-lhe individual plans I've seen are not worthwhile," says the Slerndent executive. "Usually these companies call for an individual to join the plan getting so much per procedure. But the amount he gets is so small, leaving him with 30 to 40 per cent of the costs. "The good ones are where companies pay a piece of the action .and negotiate a rate that's reasonable. Basically t's like health insurance. You can get health insurance rea sonably or unreasonably; some are state regulated, some aren't. The same holds true for dental insurance, only they are newer so there isn't as much regulation. But there will be. Preventive dentistry is stil the best effort, according t Dubilier. And there are device Northwest Arkansai TIMES, Sun., Aug. 18, 1974 FAVITTEVILLI.

TOKYO (AP) -- A spry Japa-: ' nese woman who still wins elec- -tions at age 81 said the trouble X women have with politics in Japan is because of education. ----'Japanese women haven't ' been given the education to ; prepare them for equality with ! men," said Miss Fusae Ich'. ikawa, who was elected ; recently to the upper house of · the Diet or Japanese parlia- '. ment. · She was first elected to the ; Diet in 1953, but lost the last '· election before the recent vot- 5 ing and didn't want to run this ; time.

She blamed feudalis- c customs in Japan and the onservative party that has jeen in power for all but two ears since World War II, for hat she said is democracy's allure to take root among the apanese people. A nonstop activist, writer and ne-time newspaper reporter, he commented on the nearly ,000 consumer movements in apan. The movements have grown, he said, "because the Diet is not functioning on this point. Citizens have risen in anger. "But although the movements are widely reported in the Japanese press, they haven't been able to get any great suc- ess. "The 'gokiburi' or cockroach c o n s u m e r movements a r e created by housewives who demand lower prices. But that's all they lo. Consumer movements need to find out why prices are high.

Mis her story aroum of . Hon Faces New Threat WASHINGTON (AF) -- Harassed for many.a lortg year by dtied up breeding areas,, by lunters and by the march of civilization generally, American wild ducks now face a new hazard: DVE. That's an acronym for the disease called duck virus enteritis or duck plague. Present among domestic fowl in Europe or about 50 years, it was first .·eported on farms in this coun- xy six years ago. Then in the winter of 1972-1973 it killed 43,000 wild ducks and geese at the Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge in South Dakota. Biologists fear that the virus, known to be present now in some domestic flocks and probably in wild flocks, may spread. Stricken birds die within a week after being seized first with lethargy and then with convulsions. The U.S. Fish and iWildlife Service is marshaling its laboratories, scientists and managers to try and deal with the threat.

Chronic Truant BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Michael J. Ellis of Bloomington was such a chronic truant in high school that his principal penalized him by lowering his grades by 5 per cent. And counselors told him to forget about college. ' . Ellis followed that advice, for two years, then convinced Indiana University officials to give him a chance. He graduated this year with perfect four-year attendance record. "It may sound corny, but I really like going to classes," Ellis said.
