Robert Heinemann Elected  To Honorary A Chancy student at Eaern A graduae of Chenej High Sclmal und one of MedeM Said Grossly Exaggerated Immediate fluoridation of Cheney's water supply was strong- ly urged at Tuesday's City Cou,neil meeting by Dr. O. E. Hob- man, Olympi, a, head of the dental health section of the State of Health. Dr. IIoffman said pre 'Limin,ary estimates of cost to fluoridate ,here ,are "wa,y l,h," although ,a true estimate will require an inspection and estimate by the district engineer. Dr. James A. J,ohnson, Ce- ney's dentist-counclma,n, told Dr. Hoffman, atso a dentisL that he fully agreed with the need to fluoridate the city water, if the cost is reasnabae. Low Decay Cited Dr. offman is a native of Icya, where the rate of tooth decay 'for boys and grls in the 15 to 16 yar old ae gl, oup Ls .only 5Vz ffll$gsuse of natural ftuoiaion in th,t state. Seattle, on the other ha'nd, has a rte of some 15 fllings per person for the same age group because of sft, un- fl'uoriated water, he said. In 50,000 case studies in Washington, mostly in the western 'half of the state, bays and girts have very high rotes of tooth decay because of no fluoridation. In lhe Colmbia Basra area, whre th.ere is some natural fltmeMaton, the percentage o.f tooth decay is .as low as 1Vz p,er persyn. Very Little Here that it 'lad nt acted on the Chancy, he sadd, tas only a matter because of the slim tr.ce of natural flu,oridation majority and the reported ex- end needs a flu,oridation sys- ce:ssive cost, w.heh has ranged tern installed at all possible in estimate from $30,000 to : h,aste. $50,000. Dr. Hoffman s,Nd this Special treatment for such teeth often costs from $900 to $1,100. Fl,tto.ridatkm will great- ly redtce imr grvgh ad ks of teeth, he said. A Money Saver "Fhmridaon is a real nroney saving factor  your community," Dr. Hoffrm, said. "As the spokesnan for your communRy nd for yo kids, you shd ,o ahead ad order the needed equipment to flum'ida.te your city water supoly 3vithaut dday," ,he told tl]ne eotvilmen. "The children of Wastig- ton are entitled tO the bene- fits fluridetiu will bring," Dr. Hoffrnan added. The State :Health Depm-t- meat has tong recommemled fluodation of public water throughout the state. Floida- Lion was approved "m Cemey about tyro years .ago, bu only by about 60 votes.. The coun- cil has explained Iiusty Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Jolm- son said c.ost of a ill.linty aver- ages frem $5 to $15 per fl- ing for children and yo,tmg people in grades one Vhrough 12. After fluoridation, h:ey agreed, saviD-gs of $65 on every $100 now being spent on den- tal work will be realized. I :addition to decay, Dr. Hoffman said, many perman- ent teeth will not be correct- ed ,after extractions and irreg- ular formati, os will develop.

Adults Will Benefit Dr. Hof-fman stressed Lt fluoridation is of great bene- fit to adults as Well  ctfil- dren and teemagers. Merely by brushing or "drinkh with fluoridated water, stronger teeth and bones will develop, he sd. Fluordation erea a strong enamel whe it unites with calcium, making teeth 37 per cent m)re resistmt to tooth decay when used during tim first eight years of a child's fife.
