SO CAMISTS Fancy Imperial IIUXCII Wednesday, August 6, 1947 1 Hunting For Anti-Acid Tooth Aid Boston, Aug. 5 (&) Dentists are now hunting for something to put into food to keep the American sweet tooth from aching. A tasteless, inexpensive substance something that can be fed like salt or iodine may be the answer to the problem of tooth decay with Americans who like their sweets, two dentists said today in an interview during the- International Dental conference. Dr. Lon Morrey of Chicago and Prof. Kenneth Easlick of the University of Michigan reported that most dental research workers agree tooth decay is caused by eating too many sugars that break down in the mouth to form acids which attack the enamel. "Since it is evidently difficult to curb the American appetite," Dr. Morrey said, research is now directed to "some simple health measure which will check the chemical chain reaction which produces the mouth acids." Dr. Easlick reported that experiments are underway with synthetic vitamin K, with solutions of sodium fluoride and substances which will release free ammonium in the mouth to counteract the acids. Before the war, Dr. Morrey reported, Americans were consuming an average of 112 pounds of sugar per person every year, whereas their ancestors of 100 years before used eight pounds a year. "If we can find what we're looking for," Dr. Easlick added, "Americans can have their cake and their teeth, too." Apologize For Using Black Market Newsprint Montrose. Colo., Aug. 5 U.R) The Montrose, Colo.. Daily Press has published a statement apologizing to its readers for "printing on black market newsprint." The announcement said that the newsprint now being used was purchased at two to three times the regular price because "we were unable to find regular newsprint at the regular price " "We have purchased large amounts of white newsprint at two to three times the price of resular newsprint through what is called black market, which really means we can either buy this newsprint or close the Montrose Press for several months," the statement said. It added that "black market" purchases might continue for a vear. The Press is published by William Prescott Allen of Montrose. Snack Bar Was Union Casualty Sacramento. Aug. 5 (&) The Snack bar in Memorial auditorium was a casualty Monday of the State Federation of Labor convention. The concession, which serves soft drinks and hot dogs, .was closed down when delegates discovered it was manned by non-union help and protested. All other employes at the auditorium, including stagehands, electricians, etc., are members of labor unions. Opposite Post Office IS & lite. GKAVEXSTEIX ll!S Oil National Whirligig O Washington with Ray Tucker QUESTIONS. Question: "Do you and the majority of Washington newspaper correspondents think that the record of the 80th congress was as bad as it has been painted by some writers, radio announcers and Democratic spokesmen? Was it controlled by the corporations and selfish lobbyists?" R. Y., Harrisburg, Pa. Answer: That is a large question, and the answer is a matter of opinion. However, I believe that most fairly objective reporters in the house and senate press galleries feel that the legislators did a rather good job. considering their handicaps. Most of the squawking has come from the leftish side, who dislike the generally conservative trend of the congress and the administration, particularly the anti-Russian moves of recent months. ACHIEVEMENTS. Two achievements alone, in my opinion, entitle the recent session to high praise. The first was enactment of the Hartley-Taft act, which can produce the first improvement in labor-management relationships in 10 years. Although it may require revisiqn after trial, it is not so punitive in its provisions affecting labor unions as the Lewis-Green-Murray chorus wail. The second concerns federal economy and finances. Although neither chamber cut the president's budget as heavily as they expected, they accomplished a reduction of almost $3,000,000,000. It " was the first, concerted effort toward saving public money in almost a generation. DEFENSE. The 80th congress did well by national defense. It unified the armed services so as to choke off professional jealousies and competition that have weakened us in all wars. It provided for a National Science Foundation that will provide the engineers, chemists, atomic experts and scientists which such a nation as the United States needs in war or peace time. It corrected years of careless ness in the selection of key men for federal service by passing a loyalty act along the lines proposed by President Truman. The recent dismissal of several thousand allegedly subversive and dangerous individuals from State. War and Navy reveals the need for this kind of legislation. Writh a few exceptions, the Republican-controlled legislature appropriated funds to implement the Truman-Marshall foreign policy, although they still do not know its real nature or implications. & POLITICS. The 80th congress has been criticized chieflv. and largely by the Wallace-IIenderson-Wyatt liberal group, because of its failure to enact social welfare legislation, certain mpasnrps rm ho. ! half Of th V0t0r"inC Orl H fr ito rnr. : sage of the Hartley-Taft act over j the presidential veto.

Howard E. Hill of Los Angeles, speaking before the Transportation club, disclosed that several well-preserved mummies were taken Sunday from caverns in an area roughly 180 miles square extending through much of southern Nevada from Death Valley, Calif., across the Colo- rado river into Arizona.

That also applies to legislation favorable to the ex-G.I.'s. In my opinion, the Martin-Taft-Vandenberg crowd deliberately stalled on these issues for the reasons I have given. By passing them next year (and special committees to investigate these questions during the recess have been named) they may pick up more votes in the presidential and congressional contests in November of 1943. ARMS. "Is it true." asks L.G.M., Long Beach, Cal., "that the Skoda arms works in Czechoslovakia is working 24 hours a day turning out weapons for Russia? Answer: Our intelligence people cannot vouch for the shift schedule at Skoda, one of the most productive munitions plants in the world. But Russian aviators were careful to spare it in their wartime bombing raids, as they did the Romanian oil fields. Washington believes, however, that Moscow is producing intensively at all the arms centers she has grabbed in Germany, the Balkans and elsewhere. It would be natural for her to place Skoda on an around-the-clock basis. WEAK. "Congressman Wright Patman," writes R.K., Texarkana. Ark.-Tex., "says he is encountering strong opposition in congress to printing of a book on Fascism in the United States. Is there such a threat from the right, as Patman says?" Answer: I don't think so. At least not so much as there obviously is from the left Mr. Patman mav have dug up information that the rest of us do not know, but it will be a surprise if he has. Congress has opposed publication because it thought the project a waste of money. It is understood that, in accord with the Texas member's recognized complex, the anti-Fascist volume .assails corporations, so-called trusts, world cartels, etc. But. from the standpoint of the Mussolini. Franco and Peron type of Fascism, he has an extremely weak case, according to those who have advance glimpses of his opus. TOPSOIL. Many readers have asked for more details on a recent column in which I said that we had exported valuable topsoil to other countries during the war and in our postwar, aid-to-Europe program. Answer: This topsoil is not shipped as fertilizer, rich earth or other soil-building products. It is exported as corn, wheat, cattle and in the form of other foods. Growing these crops year after year, under intensive farming methods, strips our soil of essential life-giving chemicals and qualities. It necessitates extra expenditure for artifical fertilizers on the part of the farmer. It reduces our domestic, agricultural potential, thereby resulting in short crops and high food prices at home. It is in that sense that I used the phrase, "exporting valuable topsoil."

Not until this year, however, did Dr. Russell go into the situation thoroughly. Hill told the luncheon. With Dr. Daniel S.

"The texture of the material j is said to resemble gray dved sheepskin, but obviously it was taken from an animal unknown today." , Hill said that in another cavern : was found the ritual hall of the ancient people, together with devices and markings similar to those now used by the Masonic order. In a long tunnel were well-preserved , remains of animals, including ele- phants and tigers. So far. Hill j added, no women have been found. 1 He said the' explorers believe that what they found was the i burial place of the tribe's hier- archy.. Hieroglyphics are chiseled, he added, on carefully-pol- isnea granite. He said Dr. Viola V. Pettit of London, who made excavations around Petra. on the Arabian desert, shortly will begin an inspection of the remains.

Cwmew By Dr. Richmond Barbour Director of Guidance Bureau, San Diego City Schools Sponsored by California Congress of Parents and Teachers ALL, ALL ALONE! Recently I watched a two-year-old being left for the first time at a private nursery school. He was a chubby, well-dressed littls boy, but very timid. His mother said that she was glad he had reached the age where she could park him at the school and could get some 'freadom" for herself. She brought her boy into the entry hall, helped him take off his coat and made him shake hands with the teacher. Then, when his attention was temporarily diverted by a disturbance outside, she slipped out to her "freedom." I don't believe I have ever seen a human b:ing so completely alone as her young son when he discovered his mother had left. He was To Move Bodies Of 800 Chinese To Kwangtung, China Redwood City, Aug. 5 VP) The bodies of about 800 Chinese who died from 15 to 25 years ago are being removed from the cemetery of the Nin Yung Benevolent association at nearby Colma and are being prepared for the journey to Kwangtung province. There the bones of the dead will be re-interred. The last such event occurred in 1929. The next was postponed because of the war in China. It was the custom to remove bodies every 10 years. The metal caskets will be sent to Hongkong and from there will be distributed by river steamers to villages northeast of Canton. Each casket is surmounted by a red brick carrying the individual's life history. The bodies are those of former residents of the San Francisco bay area. Steam shovels and other machinery are being used to remove the top layers of soil. The rest is taken out by hand. Japan To Send Toys To U.S. Tokyo. Aug. 5 (U.P.) Japan, now-allowed to resume limited foreign trade, soon will send auantities of toys and Christmas tree decorations to the United, States. Japanese business sources reported today. The first shipment will include 5000 "holy sets" miniature scenes of Christ's birth as well as other Christmas decorations, plus 8000 dozen toy tricycles, and an assortment of spring-operated mechanical toys. attta Cruz &rttttttr I-3niiB Published dally with a Morning Edition, except Mondays, and an Evening Edition, except Saturday nd Sunday by the Sentinel Publishing Company, at 125 Church Street, Santa Cruz, California, Fred McPherson.

Some primeval instinct caused him to cresp quietly off into a corner, where the walls protected him on two sides. He stayed there silently but his eyes betrayed the terror in his ! soul. In a few minutes the teacher sensed his difficulty and she tried to divert him. She tried to get him acquainted with some other children. She tried to get him interested in some toys. Dimly, at last, he sensed that she cared for him, and the emotional dam was broken. When I left he was hugging the teacher's shoulder, crying his fear out in long, long sobs. The incident started me wondering. What could the young man's mother have done to have eased his transition into nurssry school? And furthermore, how early in life should a child be taken from home for even a part of the day? Just a little more care on the part of the mother would have help2d her young man a lot. If she had spent the first day or two unobtrusively in the background while sonny got used to the nursery school, he probably would have been telling her to go on home by the end of the third day. The transition would have been a lot less painful. But the answer to the second question how early can a child be weaned away from home without harm is much harder to give. During the war years, we encouraged mothers to leave their children in child care centers, nursery schools, and even infant care centers, while they took war jobs. This may turn out to have been onr greatest w ar-time mistake. The advocates of nursery schools used to say that 24 months was the proper age for the beginning. One of the leaders of the nursery school movement wrote a famous book. "School Begins at Two." But that now seems too early. My own guess is that three is a better age. Even some three-year-olds may be too young for nursery school. The decision has to be an individual one, depending upon the child and the nursery school. Anyway, don't rush them away j from home too soon, and be sure j to help them get adjusted to the j new environment. Don't just de-' sert them like this unwise mother did.

Aug. 5 VP) Latest reports indicate the European wheat crop, excluding Russia's, may be 10 per cent smaller than last year's poor crop, the agriculture department announced last night. It said that substantial exports of grain from Russia and parts of the Danube basin will be possible during the coming season for the first time since the war. But w hether they will be shipped, the department noted, will depend in large measure on Soviet policy. The department said its report from abroad substantiated previous government forecasts that foreign demand for wheat will again exceed supplies available for export in the United States and other areas. The United States mav export 450.000,000 bushels of wheat, including flour, from its record crop of 1,436.000,000 bushels by harvest time next year, the department forecast. Wheat and flour exports from last year's crop totalled about 400,000.000 bushels. In view of the bumper wheat crop, however, such an increase in exports would still allow use of more wheat for livestock feed to maintain a high level of meat, poultry and dairy production. Increased feeding of wheat is expected because of a prospective smaller corn crop. It also would allow some increase in wheat reserves, which this year dropped dangerously low. European wheat crop conditions varv widely, the department said, with poorest prospects for western Europe where an unusually hard winter darn-aged winter wheat. Areas affected by the winter damage include several countries to which the U. S. exportcd sul stantial quantities of grain during the past 12 months. These areas include Germany. Denmark. Sweden, the United Kingdom. France and Spain. The department said present indications point to a Russian crop larger than last year but considerably smaller than pre-war. Mic Industry Moving West Salt Lake City, Aug. 5 (U.R)More and more industry is migrating to the west, Louis B. Lundborg, general manager of the San Francisco chamber of commerce, said here. Lundborg. who is also president of the Western States Council, was in Salt Lake Citv to attend a one-day board of directors' mid-year conference Monday. He pointed out that the western states are now involved in their first bid for a major place in the nation's industrial life.

An army supply sergeant. William P. Gall Jr., who was making a meat inspection at the plant, received serious burns, and four persons who went to his aid received minor burns. The barrel of acid was on an open platform at the plant. Heat from the sun is believed to have caused it to explode. Gall is in O'Connor hospital here. It was not immediately learned at what army installation he is stationed. BUY U. S. SAVINGS BONDS JOIN OUR RIFLE TEAM EL BSD1 IE M For Wednesday and Liquors between WaUonviUe and Santa Crux.
