AT THE rate we are going now
A it won’t be long until every
second farmer in the United States
will be a tenant. Nearly 45 per cent
of our farmers were tenants in 1930,
and the number is growing all the
Naturally, the tenant situation Is
worse in some parts of the United
States than it is in others. Tenancy
is heaviest in the South and Midwest,
and is lightest in the New England
states and along the Pacific coast.
While some tenancy is found in every
state in the Union the percentage of
tenant-operated farms ranges from a
high of 72 per cent in Mississippi and
68 per cent in Georgia to a low of 5
per cent in New Hampshire and 4%
per cent in Maine.
Tenancy is not the result of the
AAA and it is not a negro problem,
as some would have you believe. Negro
tenancy is actually declining, while
some white tenancy is increasing. The
tenant problem in this country is a
national problem that includes all
races, all creeds, and reaches from
Maine to California, and from the
Lakes to the Gulf. It has been grow-
ing in seriousness for more than 50

some hard thinking and to express
their point of view as to whether they
want the mechanism of the Agricul-

THE SALVATION ARMY
By HERBERT HOOVER
^TpODAY the taxpayer has been
X assigned the burden of food
and shelter for the destitute. But
obligations as “our brother’s keeper”
are not confined alone to material aids.
To charity there must be added the
gifts of faith and hope. The taxpayer
is an impersonal body. He cannot
light the beacon of hope in the soul
of despair. The Salvation Army does
furnish that spiritual uplift to the
souls of discouraged men and women
that sets them on the road of self-reli-
ance and courage for the future. It
regenerates the will to be men and
women. This institution rebuilds char-

of organization is being developed for

WAR TIME PROFITS
By PATRICK J. HURLEY
Ex-Secretary of War
TT IS unpatriotic to compel one
X man to endure the hardships of
war, perhaps to give his life, while
another is earning profits from war.
The power to require a citizen to en-
ter military service, perhaps to be in-
jur'd or killed, ^Is unquestionably a
greater inriad 'upon that citizen’!
rights than anything that could be
done toward using that citizen’s prop-
erty in the service of the government

Founding of Oxford University
Traditionally, the founding of Ox-
ford university was by Alfred the
Great, about 871, but the authentic
origin was the result of a quarrt
between Henry II and Thomas a
Becket, about 1164, when the king
forbade English clerks to study at
Paris, and they returning, boomed
the school at Oxford. The earliest
document giving the school of Ox-
ford the title of university was In

The Road to Health
By DR. R. ALLEN GRIFFITH
'T'HE first essential to success in the-
-3- films is a perfect set of teeth.
Crooked, protruding, irregular teeth
may be assets to a few low comedians,
but to the 27,000 “straight” players of
the silver screen such a set of teeth
would loom as 32 distinct obstacles
to a professional career.
Since the advent of the “talkies”
enunciation means everything. During
recent months, experiments conducted
by the Westinghouse and General
Electric companies have resulted in
improved microphone recording and
have brought the subject of dentistry
to the center of the stage. These mi-
crophones not only record every little-
fault, lisp, slur or hesitation, but they
magnify them, and no one can have
perfect enunciation without perfect
Because perfect teeth have now be-
come an economic necessity to the
film companies, the largest producing
unit in Hollywood has just rushed to
completion a complete dental suite in
a prominent position on the “lot.”
The organization reports that it is
now obligatory for every player to
undergo a rigid dental inspection and
treatment before stepping into the
range of either camera or “mike.” Ef-
ficiency experts found that, with pic-
ture “overhead” running about $2,000
per hour, it was cheaper to engage a
permanent staff of dentists and fur-
nish them with all necessary facili-
ties than to run the risk of a neglected
or unnoticed tooth ruining many feet
Among the comedians grotesque and
fanciful dentures are made that fit
over the natural teeth which change
the expression according to the char-
acter they wish to portray.
When Mary Pickford was cast in
the role of a shop girl, in order to
get some local color she arranged to
work in a department store for a week.
She had a set of irregular anterior
teeth constructed which so disguised
her that no one knew her identity ex-
cept the manager. These temporary,
removable sets of teeth must be fitted
without injury to the natural teeth.
Hollywood smiles are exhibited on
the screen to approximately seven and
one-half million people daily. The
player’s faeiai expressions reflecting
rapidly changing moods, make heavy
demands on the mouth—the most ex-
pressive feature, and consequently the
most useful, in the actor’s kit.
The next time you watch a motion
picture, look carefully at the mouth
and teeth of the players and you will
have abundant proof that the beauty
of their teeth is, literally, their for-
* * *
ittE HEAR a lot these days, about
VV the vitamines A, B, D and G.
They are advertised over the radio
and in our periodicals. Our scientists
tell us that the day is coming when a
perfectly balanced diet, containing the
proper vitamines in the proper amounts
will conquer all disease.
Beginning with the pregnant mother,
a balanced diet will produce a perfect
child. This child, properly fed on
these same vitamines, will have per-
fect teeth that will never decay or de-
velop pyorrhea, and the child will
never contract any disease. This is a
much to be desired condition and
might be practical provided this in-,
dividual could always be kept happy
and free from care.
The constitution of these United
States guarantees the pursuit of hap-
piness to every individual, but how
many of us ever attain it constantly
and permanently? That grief, worry,
fear, excitement and overwork have a
profound effect upon the human mind
and body, there can be no doubt
These disturbances are superficial
and, therefore, plainly noticeable.
Other organs hidden deeply in the
body are also included in the complex,
of emotional agitation. Conditions fa-,
vorable to digestion are wholly abol-
ished when unpleasant feelings, such
as worry and anxiety are allowed to
prevail. As these conditions affect the
salivary and gastric secretions they
are of vital concern in the study of
Sometimes people who have been
free from decayed teeth for' a long
period of time, until middle life or
later, suddenly present badly decayed
teeth. Their teeth melt away like ice
under a summer’s sun. In these cases
we invariably find that the* are pass-
ing through a period of overwork, deep
anxiety or added responsibility. Find-
ings have been similar in cases of
pupils in high schools and colleges as
well as their teachers.
In the case of young children in the
same family, or in Institutions where
the same diet is fed to all, some chil-
dren will have decayed teeth and others
none. Almost invariably it will be
found that the child with decayed teeth
Is one that i« easily disturbed and the
child with perfect teeth has a happy-
We must, therefore,, conclude that
happiness and freedom from worry and
responsibility must accompany our bal-
anced diet if we are to receive its full '
benefit. However, this is no argu-
ment against our Ideal vltamine diet.
