Smoking at Klmberly-Ciark
In "An Industry Health Management
Program" by R. E. Dedmon, MD
(November 1979, page 56), employee
smoking was reported to be below
national levels. This statement was
based on an inaccurate comparison.
Eighteen percent of Kimberly-Ciark
employees reported smoking one or
more packs per day, which was
compared to a national average of 34%.
The latter figure refers to regular
smokers, regardless of daily consumption. US Department of Health,
Education, and Welfare figures 1· 2
report that 30% of these regular
smokers, or 10% of the general
population, smoke 25 or more cigarettes per day. For men and women, the
percentages are 14.1% and 6.6%,
respectively. Although consumption
definition and age range differ slightly,
Kimberly-Clark employees appear to
smoke more heavily than the national
average for adults. The difference is
especially striking for fe male employees
and reflects the trend for increased
smoking in women.

DR. DEDMON REPLIES: Dr. Gritz's
comments point out the problems in
comparing different data sets. She is
correct thal our comparison figure for
smoking prevalence is nol entire~~·
accurate. Unfortunate~v. the figures
she cites do not provide an accurate
frame of reference either, because of
the different age ranges and cigare/te
consumption levels used in the Health
Interview Survey. The large numher of
persons in the 15 to 24 cigarettes per
day consumption leve/ is not considered. When this category is included,
smoking prevalence rates are 31.5%
for males and 20%for females.
Data from the jïnal report of the
Poo/ing Project indicate thot about
45% of males in the 40 to 59 year agegroups smoke one or more packs of
cigare/tes per day. Since these data
appb• to employed industrial populations, il is more meaningfu/ to
compare them to our male employees
thon the data from the Health
Interview Survey.
Handlcapped Phys Ed
"Physical Education: lntegrating the
Handicapped" by David Cushing
(January, page 121) represents me as
sort of a bad guy in terms of PL 94-142
legislation and its ideals. My point is
that care of the handicapped child
should not supplant care for the noncategorized normal child (sometimes
referred to as "temporarily ablebodied"). 1 am concerned, of course,
for the gifted child, as 1 am for ali
children who do not fit into a special
slot.
Dr. Martin's statement that minorities don't end up with more privileges
th an other segments of society is true to
a degree, but we have to face the fact
that a lot more money can be spent on
minorities for the same privileges.
