Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa he [nvestor's Quide My Sain Shulsky Q I musl have more in- come. I hold 38 shares of Abbolt Laboratories which don'i give me much Income. A You must have heard the story of the man who, learning to drive a car, was pleasantly surprised al how well the car ran once he released the brakes. Not thai Abbott Labs an "A" quality stock is to be termed a "brake" on any in- vestment portfolio. But if you continue lo hold a stock selling recently at around 53 and which pays a year (a return of about 2'A what can you expect in the way of income? I keep talking here about growth stocks (such as Abbott) for those who seek growth, and about income investments Sam Shulsky ,'bonds, preferreds and high- commons for those who income. Some readers ask 'why don't I throw out that bro- ken record? And then you come 'along wondering why your .money is earning 2 percent in- stead of, say, 7% to 8 percent or more from a high-quality pre- ferred. Q What can you tell me about an oil concession I bought in Arkansas? A About as much as I can tell you about an oil concession on the moon. The time to find ;out about these things is before hand over your money. I Q _ How can I get financial Advice on investments in real estate? A Various colleges give courses on real estate invest- ment. There are many books on the subject. And finally, I sup- ,'pose, you ought to cultivate the friendship of real estate brokers. Q _ Please tell me about the commodity market. A The commodity market is one in which such items as corn, grain, copper, eggs, pork bellies, silver, cotton, etc., etc., are traded. It is at one and the same time, a market in which the wildest speculation and the most conservative hedg- ing take place. You can play for a penny rise in a bushel of wheat, or if you are a giant bakery can assure your flour costs for 1974 by today buying futures. So far, all I've told you is about as illuminating as saying that a violinist prorduces tone :by drawing'liis bow across the strings. If you want to play the violin like Isaac Stern you'll have to go into it a good deal more. You can start with com- modity brochures which are available from many of lite large brokerage firms. But careful it can he wild. Q What can inflation do lo insured savings accounts? A Inflation diminishes the buying power of Hie dollar no matter where those dollars are kept as dollars in insured savings, in Hie sugar bowl or under the mattress or in any in- vestment, such as bonds or in- surance, whicli is expressed in terms of a fixed number of dollars. Q I am 86, living on an an- nuity purchased from an insur- ance company. How does this company compare with others? Will high interest rates affect future returns from this annu- ity? Should I invest elsewhere? A All I can say is that your company is one of the leading insurance companies of your state. There is no point to ask- ing how your income compares with lhat from other companies. (There isn't too much varia- tion.) Once you start withdrawing from an annuity you've put into effect a contract which is there lo stay for the rest of your life. You can't buy.and sell annui- ties as you would stock and bonds or real estate. Your monthly income is fixed accord- ing lo a formula set up when you first began the contract. In- terest rate changes will not af- fect it in any .way. Mr Shulskv welcomes written ques- tions, but he will be able to orovlde an- swers only through the column. For Infor- mallon on retirement, and pre-rellrement plannlno, please Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Address vour requests to Sam Shulsky, care of The Gazette.

Andclman Most people believe tooth decay is the prime cause of tooth loss, but that's not true. The fact is that adults lose their teeth mainly because of perio- dontal (gum) disease. Unfortu- nately, most people don't know [his disease can be successfully treated. The word periodontal stems from two Greek words meaning "around the tooth." A disease of the gums and other supporting structures of the teeth is thus termed periodontal disease. This disease is as old as man. Skulls of people who lived thou- sands of years ago have been found to have destruction of the bone supporting the teeth. There are several types of periodontal disease but the com- mon variety develops in two states. The first is inflamed gums (gingivitis) and the sec- ond is periodontitis, sometimes called pyorrhea. Swollen In the early stages of gingivi- tis the gums become swollen and are usually red. They gen- erally bleed when the teeth are brushed or even when touched. Unfortunately, many people consider swelling and bleeding to be normal; as a result, gin- givitis is often neglected until it's reached an advanced stage. If left untreated, the inflam- mation spreads along the roots of the teeth. The gums separate from the teeth, forming pockets which become filled with food particles, calculus, bacteria and sometimes pus. Calculus Calculus is a hard, crustlike substance that is deposited on the teeth and is composed chief- ly of minerals from the ealiva, bacteria and other substances normally found in the mouth. As the disease progresses, the bone supporting the teeth is lost. The affected teeth eventually be- come loose and drift from their normal position. Finally, unless the person receives dental treat- ment, the teeth are lost because Dr. S. L Andelman the supporting bone and other tissues have been destroyed. Improper nutrition and abnor- mal breathing through the mouth contribute to periodontal disease as do an inadequate or unbalanced diet or a body thai can't make proper use of food. You can do much to prevenl periodontal disease by practic- ing good daily oral hygience plus regular dental checkups Consult your dentist immediate- ly if you note bleeding of the gums during tooth brushing persistent unpleasant breath loose or flabby gum tissues or looseness or drifting of teeth. Dr. Andclman welcomes let- ters outlining problems whicl he may .discuss in future col umns. He regrets, however, tha he cannot personally answer mail. Write to him in care o The Gazette.

Board members of the Joinl County school system were tolc Monday night 'the- fed- erally-funded project on the handicapped would not be re newed for next year.

You are in a six-heart contract wl the contract is a cinch if you can avoid the loss of two icart tricks. Your only worry is if you ind ail four in one band and 'our safety play is to lay down raur ace of hearts at trick two. West shows out whereupon you lead a second heart to dum- ny's king and a third one back toward your jack. Had East shown out you would cad a second heart toward dum- my and hold West to one trump trick. Suppose you were in seven. You would have no way to make Jiat contracl against certain and would lose this lime if you played your ace of hearts, but you would not make this play in a grand-slam contract. You would lead a heart to- ward dummy's king.
