Precious said the new contract calls for a charges for slight increase in most dental work, notably fillings and dentures.

He noted that it was the first increase in dental fees effecting the welfare depart- ment since March of 1949. Negotiations on a schedule have been in progress since the first of the year.

Reporting at the same confer- ence session, two Russian scien- tists indicated such an atomic plant as the station the Soviet Union now is operating can best be utilized in areas re- mote from coal supplies or whera only low grade coal is available.
