( onion WASHINGTON (UFI) -One Issue Ixung thrashed out these days on an obscure level in the government’s regulatory machinery presents an interesting question in terms of trade-off for the consumer. The two sides involved are arguing, among other things, whether Americans should be subjected to higher furniture prices or exposed to cigarets with more dangerous doses of tar and nicotine. The issue is whether the government should order the furniture industry to start turning out upholstered products that are more fire resist ant, such as when a cigaret is dropped on them, or whether the tobacco industry should be forced to make cigarets that put themselves out before they set the upholstery on fire. The furniture industry says prices for its upholstered products would jump by 25 percent if it had to burn-proof them to handle present-day cigarets. The tobacco industry says cigarets that would go out if not puffed on would cost more and would be so tightly packed that the smoker would be getting an unacceptably high dose of the same cancer causing elements the govern ment has been trying to notify pimple about for years. The tobacco people say a cigaret left untouched really doesn’t burn that long anyway. The furniture forces say they tested one that burned for 27 minutes without puffing and for up to 50 minutes when wedged down between furni ture cushions. The cigaret makers say a self-extinguishing cigaret is technically feasible but practically impossible. The furniture makers say there are no k^s than 27 different patents out for self-extinguishing cigarets. Schutte was awarded $15,000 for relocation due to U.S. highway 52 construction.
