Eesidents of Oaklawn and Vicinity
Gathered Friday to Impress on
City Advantage of Estab-

Enthusiastic boosters or the proposed

' Crowds of men women and children
: which numbered well into the hundreds
were assembled under the auspices of the
' Oak Lawn Improvement club and the
Mothers clubs of the various schools in
that district. As one official of the ini-
provemept club expressed It "we boys
supplied the money and the women did
' the rest."
It had been planned to have Mayor
' Campbell address the gathering but lie
was unavoidably detained by official busl-
ness and Tax Commissioner Pastprtza

"1 thought I was coming to an oyster
roast when 1 came out here" began Mr.
Pastoriza. "I didn't know that you want-
' ed a park and expected me to agree to the
purchase of the land. I came to be fed
and inasmuch as I haven't been satisfied
yet 1mm not in a very good humor.
FOOT THE BILL.
"However if as I have been told the
park site can be purchased well within
the figures placed upon it by the
tax commission 1 will gay that I will
not raise any objection to its purchase.
There is only one thing to remember. The
taxpayer himself must ultimately foot the
bill and whenever the people want any-
thing and are willing to pay for it I am
willing that they should uave It."
Mr. Pastoriza's address was preceded
by a short talk by Attorney W. S. Hunt
on behalf of the residents of that section
Of the city who outlined the history of
the fight for the park.
"Some time ago" said Mr. Hunt "we
J presented to the commissioners a petition
signed by 900 citizens and taxpayers of
this district which asked that the city
' purchase this park site. Within a radius
of li or 13 blocks of this site there are
four schools which have an attendance of
900 to 1000 children and these children
have no park in which they can play.

IT is -between the ages of 6 and 12 that the jaws as a
rule fail to develop to their normal size" writes H. P.
Pickerill M. I. a world-quoted authority.
"During this period therefore the need for generous
mastication (chewing) is imperftive'' the eminent Doctor
continues. For new and larger teeth are coming. The
jawbone must grow normally to accommodate them.
Otherwise "crowding" of teeth is very apt to follow
and "crowded teeth invite lodgment of food particles be-
tween them. The food particles make the acid which
hastens decay. . '
At this period of the child's life chewing of Sterling
Gum gives the jaw much needed exercise promoting full
growth and full room for the important second set of teeth.
Welcomed as a goody the delicious peppermint flavor
of Sterling Gum pleases the children while doing them good.
This may sound interesting enough to you to be the
7th Sterling point. But it is not.

economic conditions of Latin-America.
