It Is a mystery because no one seems to know just, why, af- ler a quarter century between the Iwo war.?, our vast expenditure has- 111 produced a physical fitness In our youth proportionate to (ho money spent. There are a number of avenues of interesting speculation about the causes; but It is probably more fruitful to examine one area In one city that is done well. Minneapolis schools have really taught kids to look after their teeth. And economically. And without menacing the 3 R's. It is difficult in some cities' schools (or an outside observer to get any facts and figures to show that an objective lias really been accomplished. Not so in Minneapolis. The oral hygiene department —the department responsible for edurating children In core of the teeth — has been keeping accurate records since the school-year 19231824. if you have read this far and can* staiid a lew s ( a t istii:Si Iook a( these. That year 44,390 children were seen. Only 7,570 were passed as O. K.—17 per cent, of the rest, 16 - 2M needed cleaning of the leetlr 30,065 needed fillings, and 12900 needed extractions; some children as Ihe totals indicate, needed more than one thine. Now look at flc- ures for 1943-1914. a:id I'll stop harping on statistics — for a little while. 31,730 children were examined (fewer because of the national decline In elementary school enrollments). Those passed as O. K in June 1944 numbered 23465—71 per cent, Only 1,711 had 'needed cleaning; 13,434 needed fillings; and 2,181 needed extractions. For 1941 before tlie war made inroads in personnel, the figures were even better: 79 per cenl were passed as O. K. at tlie end of the year. ' Teaching That Worked So much for figures. How were these results accomplished? By a large corps of dentists, drilling feverishly?

Nine times a year Incidental hygienisls, young women-with two years' university training and a license from the ^state board of dental examiners, visit classrooms from kindergarten through eighth grade. Three of these visits, at different times of year, are used for 'examining . children .who do not bring Good Teeth Certificates from a dentist when school opens in the fall or In planning about difficult cases! or in other individual .work. The other six visits are used for instruction in diet, conservation,; structure of.lhe'-.teeth, .aiMMlie ;teeth's relation to generarhe'alth.'THe last visit each year includes ,'handing out n "summer care letter."'.Trje'se monthly classroom'visits-ratine from ten minutes in the kindergarten ,to 3o or 40 minutes in the grades. No work is done in the high schools: • • By a little figuring, a maximum of 40 minutes nine times a year for nine years comes out to 54 hours How much time docs that take away from the 3 R's,' spread out over nine years? Yet see what can be done with it: In a'dental survey in an Eastern, city ;51)6 iof,sixteen-? year-old boys were found "to have' lost one' or more first permanent molars—the. loss of first permanent molars being one recognized index of dental health. In Minneapolis the percentage .is. .8.2. per ce'i and that at 18 years old, not 16 Establish Httrft.-Padein • How can thcv pack straclion into 5?. hours to be effcc five? Well, instruction isn't all The hygienists 'simply start a trail of. .thought;'.a liabit-patterii, in a child, provide interesting and well- timed material to stimulate it once a month, let the process of a child's maturing do the rest, children are n t helpless, you know; they'll lean \ Famed songwriler Irving Berlin, nbove, who loured Europe with his hit musical "This Is the Army," is now on'an cntertain- meni loui of the fat East, doing his stulf for servicemen in liberated parts of Ihc Dutch East Indies.
