GLOBAL COMMENTARY U.N. Stumbles Again In Guinea Invasion DENTAL HEALTH WEEK Toothbrushing Important To Remove Debris Quickly EDITOR'S NOTE: -Feb. 7-13 is the 23rd annual National Children's Dental Health Week. As part of the observance, The Clarion-Ledger, in cooperation with the Jackson Dental Association, today begins a series of articles on facts you should know about dental health. My dentist is always stressing toothbrushing after eating. Why is it important? Toothbrushing is the most important part of good oral hygiene because it cleans debris from the teeth. We know that oral bacteria act on residual food within minutes, so it is highly important to remove as much debris as possible immediately after eating. Oral debris is one of the causes of two major dental diseases: decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Foods that are high in carbohydrates, or sugars, are a prime factor in decay (dental caries). The oral bacteria react with sugar to form acids that dissolve tooth enamel. The bacteria also produce gummy substances called dex- trans which enable plaque to stick to the teeth. Bacterial colonies form the plaque. Once it is established on the teeth, Fund Drive Started For Policeman GRENADA (AP) Area radio and television stations raised $400 Saturday to assist a Grenada policeman who lost seven members of his family as a result of a killed tornado. A spokesman at station WNAG at Grenada said the fund raising drive was being carried out in cooperation with the city police department for officer Christopher Hankins. Hankins' wife and three small children, a sister, a niece and mother-in-law died Thursday when the twister dipped down about 12 miles north of here and shredded his trailer house. Funeral services for the seven were conducted at a small church Saturday not far from where the Hankins family was located. more bacteria lodge in the plaque and reproduce. Obviously, teeth that have lost some enamel and that are exposed to continual acid attacks in the mouth are more susceptible to decay. Once the decay has penetrated well into the tooth, the infected part of the tooth must be removed and sealed with a filling. This is why brushing as soon important. By removing the acid-inducing food and debris from the teeth, you greatly reduce acid attacks upon tooth enamel. And brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste will help make the enamel stronger and better able to withstand acid attacks. If plaque is not removed by toothbrushing it eventually hardens into calculus, which irritates the gums and causes them to recede. As the gums recede, they leave tiny pockets behind which collert more debris, bacteria and plaque. If the periodontal disease is not halted and treated, the pms recede and the disease spreads into the bone which supports the tooth. The tooth as possible after eating is so becomes loose and eventually may have to be extracted. Regular dental visits for professional cleaning to remove plaque and calculus are necessary, as toothbrushing cannot entirely prevent the formation of plaque. Periodontal diseases affect nearly all the adult population and a good portion of children, too and are the single greatest cause of loss of teeth by adults. So, it is just as important to brush your teeth when you are i,n adult as when you are a child. You are actually working with the dentist to prevent two dental diseases: caries and periodontal problems. You are ine one most responsible for your good or bad oral health. Dr. Norville "Something Can Be Done for Asthma" NORVILLE CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC 1207 NORTH WEST STREET JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 39202 352-S744 353-5982 Medicine researchers have found that Asthma is a condition of constriction of the bronchial tubes and conjestion of the mucous membrane lining the tubes. They also found that nerve irritation brings this condition about. Adjusting, replacing and correcting the structural interference of the nerve supply to this area is the chiropractic method. A 34 year old businessman had a history of Asthma for over 20 years. Following an attack that lasted 15 days, he came to the Norville Chiropractic Clinic. Our routine spinal examination and spinal x-rays located the nerve interference. It was promptly corrected. His asthma has not returned. Something can be done for Asthma! Chiropractic proves it? Investigate? You have nothing to lose but your Asthma. By RUTHVEN E. LIBBY Copley News Service If anyone has any lingering doubts that the ability of the United Nations organization to perform the functions assigned under its charter has become seriously impaired, the Dec. 8, 1970, resolution passed by the Security Council, aimed at Portugal, should dispel them. TBIs1""' extraordinary performance was another example of fe growing proclivity of the organization to foment trouble and to arrogate unto itself an omniscience whereby it increasingly passes judgments without bothering to ascertain relevant factsi. Tftis particular resolution (passedjiy the Security Council; withofit any protest from the United States) got little publicity; at the time. But the world gctt a shocking reminder of it on Jan. 25. 1971, when the National Assemflty of Guinea condemned 92 Africans to death and 72 others to hard labor for life for their-alleged role in the Novem-befwWsion attempt for which the Sechfity Council held Portugal responsible. Some of the condemned were hanged out of hand:, in, what Guinea's Radio Cqpafr'jreported as "a carnival "Tftmosphers" in which the mob '"spat on those hanged and stoned their bodies." Thecsolution grew out of an allegation "by Guinea's President Sekou Toure that his nation was invaded by armed forces under the direction of the Portuguese government early ort thci. morning of Nov. 23. It was "bJSsftd on the report of a special five-member mission dispatched to Conakry to investigate Toure's complaint. What happened in Conakry has been reported by James J. Kilpatrick in .the National Review. He sums up his account by saying that in the whole voluminous transcript of the mission's proceedings (over 200 pages) "there:appears not one scintilla of harlj.j objective, independent evidence" to support the Guinean charges." Despite this, the resolution as passed declared among other things that the council "strongly condemns the government of Portugal for its invasion of the Republic of Guinea, demands that--fulf compensation by the government of Portugal be paid to Jthe Republic of Guinea for the 'extensive damage to life and" property caused by the armed;.attack and invasion, and declares that the presence of Portuguese colonialism on the African continent is a serious threat to the peace and security of independent African states." Thisv travesty is emphasized by the act that at the January trials 'Toure then claimed that FrencS-, West German and Lebanese-agents were behind the plot and has since broken off econojtiic relations with Bonn becaifse of alleged West German participation therein. It is also noteworthy that there is no indication that any Portuguese were aniong those sentenced. DITOTENCY CITED The increasing inability of the United Nations to deal with the problems facing the world was pointed out in the interim report of the Presidential Commission set up by President Nixon last July, headed by Henry Cabot Lodge, who was U. S. representative at the United Nations during the Eisenhower presidency. Major weaknesses cited in this interim report included the following: The main one, of course, is that cooperation among the permanent members of the Security Council is basic to the charter, and without such cooperation no fundamental decisions can be reached. Hence, from its inception, it has been unable to function when the interests of the super powers clashed, as they have from the beginning and always, in all likelihood, will. As now organized, the United Nations has neither the means nor the vitality to deal with most of the major problems confronting the world. It has, in essence, too many members unqualified by training or experience in world affairs, who either give only lip service to the principles of the charter or interpret them for their own petty advantage and narrow self-interest. The forum provided by the United Nations has been used too often as a platform for propaganda and has degenerated into a futile debating society. As a result, world reaction is at best disillusion and at worst DEFECTS LINGER After a quarter-century of experience, one must conclude that the likelihood of the reality of the United Nations even approximating the high ideals of the charter is remote. During the 26 years of its life, a great many recommendations for correcting its defects have been forthcoming. (The Lodge commission made severai: strengthen the peace-keeping machinery; eliminate inefficient procedures; draft international laws dealing with drug abuse, hijacking, etc.; prepare to cope with worldwide environmental problems; and so on.) There have been proposals to revise the charter to remove the extant one-eountry-one-vote rule, and in other respects. But nothing has been done. The U. N.'s inability to eliminate strife and the incitement it too often gives to international tension is apparent. Even its most ardent admirers must admit that it is cumbersome, wasteful, ill-balanced, often ill-advised,ineffective, and cynically abused by many of its members. Yet the idea persists that we must keep it alive in the absence of anything better. Perhaps we would do well to reexamine this postulate, if for no other reason than as long as the United Nations is permitted to bumble and stumble along, there WILL be nothing better. What residual value to the cause of peace it now possesses will be destroyed with the admission of Red China to membership, which is likely to take place very soon. We ought now to be thinking about exploring the possibilities of alternatives. Several offering prospects of being more workable than the present setup exist. It has been suggested, for example, that there could be a system of international cooperation and consultation based on broad regions of the world, along the lines of the European Economic Community or the several regional defense pacts now in existence. Mutuality of interest in these regional groups would engender collective effort, collaboration and responsible behavior so lacking in the present organization. The same mutuality of interest, on a broader scale, would provide a basis for realistic consultation and cooperation on a global basis. C&e Clariott'LcDgxc Published dally 311 E. Pearl S.
