Kissinger is shown, top, with Norwegian actress Liv Ullman in 1973, center, with American actress Jill St. John in 1970; and bottom, with CBS-TV producer Margaret Osmer in 1971.

But sooner or later the gov- ernment will have little choice but to take the step. No man knows that better than social Affairs Minister Claude Forget Mr Forget announced last week that the province's oft- delayed child denticare plan will begin .May 1, providing free dental care for all children under eight The cost of the at million for the first expected to soar considerably over the years, if and when the government extends the plan to cover all children up to the age of 15, the crest of the cavity-prone years. Consequently, with increased taJes viewed with obvious disfavor, the government must cut costs within the plan. The only feasible the mo- to be fluoridated water It has been established in countless experiments and surveys that drinking fluoridated water reduces cavities and tooth decay by almost 60 per cent, a fact which boggles the minds of Quebec's budget planners With the election now behind them, Premier Bourassa's team has been sending out feelers The social minister week that be will probably In- troduce legislation later this year dealing with fluorktation, but sealed'his lips when it came to outlining specifics of such action "We are way behind most other provinces in providing fluoridated water to the he said. "It seems to me appropriate to renew discussion on the issue because it is the interest of public health to increase its use." Only British Columbia and Newfoundland are behind Quebec in terms of providing fluoridated water. Only 12 per cent of the Que- bec population, in 47 commu- nities, get fluoridated water from the tap compared with 66 per cent in Manitoba and 60 per cent in Ontario. The national averave is 35.7 per cent. The United States average is 45.5 per cent Major Canadian cities with fluoridated water include To- ronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Edmonton, London and Windsor Those without it include Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, Quebec City, Calgary and St Catharines, Ont The only city of importance in Quebec with fluoridated water is Laval (pop north of Montreal. According to the Canadian Dental Association, the cost of providing fluoridated water is 11 cents an- nually per capita The association also denies any 'contention that fluoridated water produces harmful side-effects on certain people PLAN ANNOUNCED PALM BEACH, Fla (AP) A plan which will enable a small but important art mu- seum in southeast Florida to import six outstanding exhibi- tions of world famous art has been announced lure A GOOD PLACE TO SPEND THE HOUDAY WEEKEND. On a long weekend a lot of drivers are so anxious to get out to those country breezes that they throw all caution to the wind. Because they're less cautious, it may pay for you to be a little more cautious. By driving a Volvo, for instance. The Volvo body is so strong we've stacked seven Volvos on top of one another without crushing the one on the bottom. What gives Volvo this strength are the six steel pillars surrounding the passenger compartment and the thousands of spot welds holding the body together. The trunk and engine compartments are designed differently. They crumple on impact at a pre-measured rate to absorb a collision before it reaches the passenger compartment. On the sides, steel bars protect the passengers from lateral impact. And in front and back, hydraulic shock absorbers on the bumpers absorb low- speed collisions. But Volvo doesn't just protect you from "the other guy." It can keep you from becoming "the ether guy." Disc brakes are designed to resist fading, even after repeated panic stops. So Volvo has disc brakes on all four wheels. And Volvo doesn't stop there. It has a braking system with two independent sets of three-wheel disc brakes. If one set fails, the other still gives you about 80% of your braking power. course, driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as mechanical failure. So Volvo comes with bucket seats that let you concentrate on the road instead of the pain in your back. The seat-backs are infinitely adjustable with a special adjustment that allows them to be made firmer or softer. And since you really can't concentrate on what's ahead of you when you're worried about what's behind you, Volvo has a rear window defroster. As well as rear door children can't open from inside. So when making plans for a long weekend, maybe you should plan on buying a Volvo. There's nothing like being prepared for the holidays. vouvo SHORT STOP AUTO LTD. 538 6th St. S., Lerthbrldgt Phont 328-6586 Sears nue 59" The idea! travel suit 100% polyester doubleknit or 100% wool We've "styled our polyester double knits three ways.
