It is particularly important to recognize the value of the WIC Program for helping low-income families. Among some of the positive benefits are: WIC significantly improves chil- dren's diets. WIC improves the growth of at- risk infants and children.

Introduction of the new area codes also means the way certain long distance calls arc dialed within Southwestern Bell territory will have to change. All long-distance calls will require l 1-digit dialing (1 + or O+ the number) will no longer be possible. Because of the new long-distance dialing, some office phone equip- ment may also need to be repro- gramn to allow dialing of the "home" area code when placing a 1 + or O+ call: some equipment may block that option now. "In most cases, the change does not affect how our customers male local calls, and, it won't affect rates at all," said Brown. Brown said Southwestern Bell is phasing in the new dialing through a monthly food psckap tailored to meet the spial dietary needs of the program's participants. The method for provided the WIC supplemmtal foods is through a local grocery store who has a contract with the Otoe-Missouria Tribe. The participant receives vouchers they can redeem f specific foods at this store.
