True, America is unique, homogeneous, and remarkably strong as a union, rather than a unit, but more and more as social and commercial ramifications merging as between states. T)R. JOHN W. BROWN, state health officer, Is our authority for the statement that about nine out of every ten persons in the United States have something wrong with their teeth. At least eight of each ten have caries, or dental decay. A long list of other maladies, including the famous "pyorrhea," is to be discovered in even a casual examination of the teeth in any community. Why do so many people suffer the misery of bad teeth? Dental research in recent years has reveal- I ed that the real trouble Is the diet ! and other health habits of civilized | folk, and not civilization itself. We j may be both civilized and have good I teeth. j The teeth are living organs, and J. must be nourished, like any'other i part of the body. They are composed 1 principally of calcium, a mineral found in great abundance in milk. Hence the insistence scientists on the use of dental of greater amounts of milk in the diet. It is also important to preserve the general bodily health, for dental decay often begins during periods of general 11] health. Teeth of mothers are also particularly likely to decay during pregnancy, hence at this time, particular attention should be paid .to the diet. Another important time for teeth health is in infancy and early childhood. Children should have plenty of milk, should receive some Vitamin p. fond, and should be permitted to play in the sunlight as often as possible, For dental decay is not a simple disease; it has many causes, and its treatment does not depend on the dentist alone, but on every per, son who wants to improve the health of his teeth. . . FIREMEN (Qontlnuec; Prom page 1) Women of First Baptist church and several guests were entertained with a tea at the home of Mrs. P. E. Leech' yesterday afternoon, honoring Mrs. W. D.

Neumann Takes Highest Prize In Air Races CLEVELAND, Sept. 3 '(/P)—Harold Neumann, 20, of Moline, 111., a nervy, precise racing cilot, held the highest prize offered" by the 1935 national air races today — the Thompson trophy. Neumann flew a plane known as "Mr. Mulligan" ten perilous laps around a misty 15-mile course yesterday to win first place in the Thompson trophy race. His average speed was 220 miles an hour. Not until he came to earth after the race, did Neumann know he had won. He thought Colonel Roscoe Turner, far in the lead for eight laps, had won the race. A broken oil line brought Turner down as he streaked around the course on the ninth lao at a: speed of nearly four miles a, minute. A crowd estimated by air race officials at 85,000 persons saw Turner head his nlane almost str.alght up into the sky to get off the course and then land It safely. S. J. Wittman of Oshkosh, Wls., finished the Thompson race in second place less than a minute behind Neumann. He averaged 218 miles an "hour. Roger Don Rae of Lemout, 111,, was third at a speed of 213 miles an hour; Joe Jacopsan of Chicago was fourth'-at 209; Lee Miles of Farmingdale, L. •!•• was fifth with 193, and Marion McKeen of Los Angeles was sixth with' 188.

Sept. 3 f/P)— Senator Huey Long came here from Oklahoma City last night, gruffly declined to be interviewed and registered at a hotel. Forty-five minutes later he packed up and left. The "Kingfish" came here after delivering a Labor day address at Oklahoma City. A girl reporter met him at the train. "I got nothing to say." he said. A body guard pushed the reporter away. The senator climbed into a taxicab and drove to a hotel where he registered and took a suite of rooms. "I may be here five minutes," he told the clerk, "or I may want it all night." Two men went to the suite with him but did not register. The three came down at 11:30 o'clock and hastily left the hotel.

CARDUI Eased Pain Cardul is a medicine for such conditions as described below by a lady who used to take It: "I took Cardul for pain and cramping, also for run-down condition, and I found It eased the pain and built up my nervous system and helped the weakness," writes Mrs. E. D. Carrell, of Hllls- boro, Texas. "I would have nervous spells that would unfit me for my work. I took Cardui and I would get all right. I was never without it when needed." Functional pains and nervousness at monthly periods often go away when better nourishment has been provided. Cardui relieves certain pains, increases the appetite and improves digestion.
