This is the finding of research done by economics student An- drew Namcth of Toronto who just graduated at Queen's University, Kingston, Out: Nametti contends Uiat a 1 ri- per-cent increase in the price of cigarettes would lead to a drop in cigarette consumption of more than 16 per cent.

The snipers, under cover of darkness, pumped bullets into passing cars and fired at police in a disturbance that lasted for several hours. Several persons, including two policemen, were injured, none by gunfire. Four arrests were reported. Police, armed with rifles and shotguns, blocked off an IB- block area and attempted to dis- perse the crowd with tear gas, but this failed to stop the shoot- ing. been Uiat prices have little to do I number of cigarettes smoked with levels of smoking, that a j per person, and cmlit had gono craving for nicotine or olhor j lo warnings of links lung gratification prompted people to cancer, heart disease and other smoke with little regard for ailments, cost.
