fAGE TWO Bi/rrHKvru/E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1955 Board of Health Dentist Discusses Questions On Fluoridation Issue STARR GAZING By BETTYE NELLE STAKR C«srler New* Staff Cor responds** By H. SHIRLEY DWYER, D.D.S, Dental Director, State Dcpt. of Health The silly and untruthful .statements made by certain groups and individuals in the matter of fluoridation of water supplies is planned to create doubt and confusion in the minds of some of our citizens who may be called on to decide whether or not they desire protection for the weth of their children. For this reason, we plan 10 give some of these objections, and the truthful, scientific answers. The answers are the result of the study and research of scientifically trained individuals who are authorities in the field. They are not the idle and emotional vaporings of self-styled authorities and kindergarten level scientists. We will be happy to spnd the references to anyone wishing ANSWER—The First Amendment I of the U. S. Constitution is so m- I terpreted that the rltjhi of any | special, religious group to practice religion must not unreasonably interfere with the right of the whole community to enjoy what it determines is beneficial for its well being. OBJECTION—The Innestion of fluorides will cause systemic trou- | bles, especially in older people, and , no studies have been made on this danger. ANSWER—We have in from of us, at this time, 22 references to studies that have been carried out by competent authorities. These inchulp studies on the skin. thyroid, malignant growths, liver. heart and blood vessels, bones, and ] kidneys. ! Not one of these studies indi- 'cates any harmful effects from the '• continuous drinking of water con- taining the fluorides. It is unfor- . tunate when individuals hastily j quote or misquote, or fail to read a!! of the authoritative information I on B subject. j Half truths and quotes taken out : of context are just as much lies las direct falsehoods. Also, it is well to consider the background and scientific training of the individuals being quoted as authorities. A former preacher posing as authority on world affairs is one of them, and more recently, a chemist, without health training has been discussing diseases that might result from fluoridation. There is an old quotation, "Shoe- j maker, stick to thv last." If some ! of the "shoemakers" who are busying themselves with opposing health measures would stick to their own business, the world would bo a I healthier place in which to live Today marks the anniversary of Great Britain declaring war on Spain, on 1739. It was called *(of all inines> "The War of Jenkins' Ear," because .of an incident in 1731. when a Spanish coast guard stopped the brig Rebecca, rifled the hold and cut off one of her master's ears, Robert Jenkins. The war was actually part of the War of the Austrian Succession, but, I like its other name best. American Federation of Musicians was founded on this date in 1893. I do believe Petrillo must have organized it, he's been in there pitching a mighty long time. Sarah Bernhardt was born on Oct. 15, 1845. Sam Houston took office as President of Texas on Oct. 15, 1836. First Women's rights convention was on Oct. 16, 1856 and from that day. men began cussnig 1.650.000 acres of Indian land in Oklahoma was ordered sold on Oct. 24. 1910. William Penn was born on Oct. 25, 1644. that the peak of a boom is reached when the average tand there's no other kind, might I add) family is paying installments on five things instead of one. They say the only part of the hog that the packers waste is the squeal. That's when the housewives come into their own. Women are some mighty close shoppers. If you men don't think so, push a market basket behind one instead of trying to push ahead. You'll get some good pointers on how to stretch the grocery budget. Some folks think they are WORTH a lot of money because they've got a lot of it. You ever notice how the history of a country is written in iheir popular songs? Look what Davey Crockett has done to the younguns. Any six year old, now will tell you he was one of the six survivors who died at the Alamo. When I was six years old, I had never heard of the Alamo, "music lessen" Davy Crockett or vice versa. I wonder just how far a person would get if something didn't stand in their way. Ain't no telling. The deepest urge in human beings is to be important. As long as a fellow thinks he is, that helps — but that doesn't necessarily moan the other fellow thinks you're important. The cemeteries are full of folks who thought they couldn't be replaced. Half the world knows how the other half ought to live. j They say., and. I wouldn't be; knowing how they found out.; there's more gluttons in hell than j drunkards. j An election probably doesn't prove anything, except,, that different sections of the country are mad about different things. An optimist is a man who, in- stead of crying over spilt milk, consoles himself with the thought that it was 4<5 water anyway. Pity costs nothing and tt ain't worth nothing neither. There is no limit to either intelligence or ignorance. Women have a Keen sense of humor, a very learned man once said — the more you humor them, the better they like it. Fame is chiefly a matter of dying at the right moment. Whip a spoon or two of mint jelly in mayonnaise for a nice topping them. OBJECTION—The condition of the tissues surrounding the teeth is not as good in areas of fluoridated j water. In other words, though the ' fluoridation might help prevent dental decay, the objectors claim it might cause diseases of the soft tissues of the month. ANSWER—In a study carried out by Drs. Russel and Elvove, it was found that in the area without fluoride in the water, the natives had not only lost 3 times as many teeth, but \also showed more disease' of the soft tissue than where there was fluoride in the water supply. OBJECTION — Fluoridation vio- | lates the principles of some religions. Gentry Moves to Prevent Court's Recondiseration of Track Ruling Didn't Want it AH RENO, Nev. (& — I don't want all of your money—just enough to go see my kids," said a holdup man at the Windsor Hotel Monday as he threw back $3.75 of the $30 he stole. Desk; clerk Fred J. Entires described the robber as a heavyset Negro with a shotgun or rifle hidden under a dirty white coat. WONT PAY—Utah Democrats are demanding that J. Bracken Lee, the state's Republican governor, either pay his federal taxes or resign. Governor said he will not pay his income tax, hoping, he says, to secure a U.S. Supreme Court test of the federal government's "riqht . to tax American people for the support of foreign countries." LITTLE ROCK tJPt — Ally. Gen. Tom Gentry moved yesterday to try to prevent a possible reconsideration of yesterday's Arkansas Supreme Court ruling that the present Hot Springs racing franchise is invalid. Gentry filed with the court a motion asking for an immediate mandate to carry out the decsion. William J. Smith of Little Rock, attorney for Oaklawn Jockey Club, said he would resist Gentry's motion "until we decide whether to seek a rehearing." The court Monday held, that a former Arkansas Racing Commission acted illegally when, in 1954, it granted Oaklawn a 10-year franchise to start this year at expiration of a then-current franchise. The court dissolved an injunction Oaklawn had obtained against the present commission opening bids- including one from Oaklawn—for a new franchise. Under customary procedure, Smith has 17 days in which to file n motion for a rehearing—that is for a review by the Supreme Court of its own decision. Too Much Fun tost Night?

Gentry moved yesterday for an immediate mandate, but the request was not accepted then by the court because it was not written. In his motion today, (.he attorney general said the case had been "fully considered by the court . , . and any further delay in prohibiting the Arkansas Racing Commission from carrying out its statutory function will serve no useful purpose." What many an author doesn't know fills a book. A person who really doesn't try is the most trying. Have you ever seen an athletic girl that thought she was strong enough to do indoor work, like housecieaning or the like? Kinda like the athletic boys about mowing the grass. I'm speaking from a mania's viewpoint. It has been said by the experts Concrete Cushion MEMPHIS. Tenn. 'Ji — A construction elevator plunged nine stories yesterday — and although R. L. Reid came out of it a mess, he wasn't hurt. Reid, 32. was taking a big wheelbarrow of fresh ce ment to the top when the elevator cable snapped. He immediately flopped down on the soft, wet cement and used it for a cushion. iYOUR FRIENDLY THEATRE Northeast Arkansas' Most Popular Theatre HELD OVER LAST TIMES TONIGHT! -His BIG NEW ROLE! •IACKWEBB AS PETE KELLY JANET LEIGH EDMOND O'iRIEN PEGGY LEE • uun KVINE • ut MARVIN • ELU FITZGERALD f/ i WARNER BROS.,.
