Aug. 26 but insisted they released him unharmed when it turned out he was not the one who allegedly whistled and made an indecent proposal to Bryant's 21-year-old wile. Not Conclusive Proof Three days later a body found in the muddy Tallahatchie River was identified as Tin's, but the jury decided the prosecution had not presented conclusive proof ol the body's identity. The verdict gave rise to rumors that Till might still be alivi Sheriff H. C. Strider in nearby Charleston said he heard Till was in Detroit but added 1 . "As far as knowing anything definite, I don't know it." At Detroit, Mamie Bradley, the boy's mother, called the rumors a "cruel hoax" and said she was willing to ;iave the body exhumed for an examination. Reports also began circulating about abuse of witnesses who had testified for the state against Bryant and Milam. Chicago police kept a 24-hour watch over Willie Reed, a teen-age Negro field hand who said he saw Milam with Till at least an hour after the half- brothers said they released him. Husband Said Beaten Rep. Charles Diggs, Michigan Negro Democrat, said he was looking Into reports that toe husband of Mandy Bradley, another state witness but unrelated to the boy's mother, had been beaten and forced to leave Sumner. He also said that Mose Wright fled to Chicago after hiding out from "three carloads of white men who were out looking for him." The Sunflower County sheriff's office said it had no reports of any of the incidents^ Negroes in Detroit were holding a 24-hour mass meeting to protest the acquittal verdict in the murder trial. Tin's mother appeared and told the audience of 1,000 she had recovered from her grief and now was "angry—just plain angry." (Continued from P»«« » tin. Amoros drew intentional pass.

DON'T BE FOOLED On June 14, 1955, your City Council wrote a prescription to medicate your drinking water by adding fluoride. This prescription will be filled by a day laborer, not a licensed druggist, and he must wear a specially treated suit, gloves, and headgear with air hose attached to protect himself. 8 FLUORIDES ARE DANGEROUS. There is no • known antidote for this poison. Scientific research on this point says: "No one knows today how many people with diseased kidneys, or other disorders, are having life-spans SHORTENED by clajly incorporation of minute quantities of various toxic agents including the fluorine suppHed in water WITH NOT MORE THAN ONE PART PER MILLION OF THIS ELEMENT." V. 0. . Hurme, D.M.D., The Forsyth Infirmary for Children, Boston, Mass. 9. 10, 11 12 13 DENTISTS OPPOSE FLUORIDATION. 119 dentists in Worcester, Mass., signed a petition headed by Max Ginns, Il.M.D., condemning fluoridation as being unscientific . . does not prevent tooth decap . . . cumulative poison . . . harmful to all human beings . . . good teeth are due to better nutrition . . better hygiene. (This in face of Art. 20 of fhe Dentists code of conduct.) DENTISTS DO NOT "DOPE" THEIR OWN • CHILDREN. A survey of 1500 dentists ir various parts of the country wag made by Dr. Pnul Manning. Springfield Mass. Not one of them administered fluorine to his own children's teeth. MANY PHYSICIANS OPPOSE FLUORIDATION. In a survey made in Toronto, Canada, among practicing physicians and dentists "96 indicated unconditional opposition to fluoridation, and 146 demanded further research be undertaken on the effect of fluorine". SWEDEN AND PRANCE REJECT FLUORIDATION. Evidence from U. S. not sufficient to justify even "experimental fluoridation unless much more convincing evidence can be presented by the U.S." (That is something when "good neighbor" help is refused.) Most communities in Britain turn down any consideration of artificial fluoridation of their water supply. FLUORIDES CORRODE PIPES. Knoxville, Iowa, • one of the Iowa dies financed by Federal Public Health Funds to put fluoride in the water, has joined several other cities in the state iti withdrawing from fluoridation. Pipes in Knoxville plugged and corroded so much that in six months the Water Department put it up to the people and fluoritlation was put out. Ths dollar you may save from your dentist will certainly go to your garage mechanic or your plumber! NO FLUORIDATION — Better Children's Teeth. From a N. Y. State Bureau of Health (Oct. 1!)54): School children's teeth of Newburgh, N.Y., have app. 1/3 more dental defects after a ten year test period than those of nearby Kingston, which had no fluoridation. (Proponents say it was not a fair test, same man did not examine all the teeth. None so blind as thost who will not see.) By the way, this same Newburgh is reported to have the highest death rate for heart trouble in the U.S., 58.3% of total deaths. 1954 Public Health Report.

GOVERNMENT (Continund from Pag* » reluming to It tor assurance o! nightly rest. , "His progress continues to be .satisfactory without complication," the medical bulletin added. The Boston heart specialist, who attended Eisenhower here and now receives twice-daily telephone reports in Boston on his condition, was interviewed on the NBC show "Today." Cabinet Metis The decision of Sherman Adams, the assistant to the President, to join the Denver White House party, spelled the virtual end of any possible plans to delegate any of Eisenhower's authority during his illness. Adams is due here tonight from a Cabient meeting in Washington over which Vice President Nixon is presiding. Dr. White said it remains to be seen how active the President can be in the future. He said signs from the bedside are "very en. couraging" and that the President's morale is good. Eisenhower's personal friends said the arrival of Adams tonight will dispel any doubt that the reins of government will be kept firmly in hand until the President is able to assume active direction of policy. That the date when the President will be at the helm of his administration is not far off was indicated in the latest bulletins from his tration Is not far off was indicated in the latest bulletins from Ms doctors, relayed to newsmen by White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty. There are even tnose who speculate that the President will not take kindly, once he has been given a fill-in on Washington ma neuvers of the past few days, the quickness with which some people In his administration explored ways for delegating presidential authority to others. Oxygen Tent Junked The president was recovering so well from his heart attack of last Saturday that doctors discontinued use of the oxygen tent. And they decided he is well enough to initial a couple of government documents —lists of foreign service officer assignments—possibly as early as today. Last night's bulletin from Pitz- slmons Army Hospital said: "The President had another satisfactory day Without complica tlons. The routine use of the osytm toot hu b**n discontinued. Tonight, tor tt» flrit'time, it ta planned to permit the President to sleep without the tent." White House Press Secretary James C, Hagerty was asked at one news conference whether the progress the President has made meant that the question of possible delegation of powers has been "put on ice." 'I don't know about Ice," he said with a laugh, "but you certainly can say it has gotten a lot cooler." And he. added that, barring unforeseeable complications, "I do think you would be justified in writing thst It is unlikely that there will be any need for delegation of powers." • At. the same, time, Hagerty, responding to a question, said, that "of course" Vice President Nixon was consulted In advance of the decision by Adams, former governor of New Hampshire, to transfer his base of operations from Washington to Denver. In Washington, Adams always has handled most of Eisenhower's papsr work up to. the point of final decision or signature by the President. Hagerty said Adams will be just about as close physically to the President here as he normally is in Washington. He made it clear that the President has not discussed with anyone the problems of carrying on. the operations of government since he was stricken. But he did say Eisenhower has inquired a couple of times as to "how things are going." ~ BUCHANAN (Continued from Page 1) dent* alike." Came Here in '37 Buchanan came to Blytheville in 1937.
