"Neglected Teeth In Childhood Ar
Biggest Cause of lental Trouble
In Later Lie"
"Neglected teeth in childhood ar
the biggest source of dental trouble it
later life," stated Prof. Russel W
Bunting, of the Dental college, in his
lecture in the Dental auditorium a
4:00 o'clock yesterday. This tall
concluded the series of health lectures
given during the summer session.
"The problem of Dental disease is
almost appalling when we try to fnc
ways to meet it. In school children i
runs as high as 85, or 90, or even 9
per cent. Parents either cannot af-
ford to have their children's teeth
cared for, or else they are unable tc
find Dentists who are willing to care
for children.
Must Help in Schools
"The place to help ch-ildren is in
the school," Dr. Bunting believes.
"The efforts that are being made to-
day in this direction are only scratch-
ing the surface. The Attorney General
of the State of Michigan handed down
a ruling that it is unlawful to appro-
priate school funds for medical or
dental attention, but that this money
must be spent on the actual education
of the child. Attempts are being made
to change this ruling, but up to the
present, practically all funds for
health purposes must come from the
Board of Health or organizations of
charity. "
In order to start a program of Dent-
al Hygiene in a community, it is nec-
essary first to make a survey to find
out the facts in that school by a simple
examination. Parents should then be
notified that the child needs attention.
The next step is the education of the
child in the care of the mouth. He
should be taught to eat more hard
foods and less sugar, and to brush his
teeth at least once a day. This may
be done by lectures and talks of
teachers, and lectures before the par-
ent-teacher's association.
Need Money
The last step of the program is
more difficult because it involves large
amounts of money. Dentists and
dental hygienists must be employed
to give service to the children who
can have no other care. There must
be a regular source of funds so that
the work can be carried o with
Two outstanding projects of this
kind are in existence today. The
largest is the Forsythe Dental infirm-
ary established in Boston ten years
ago with money given by the Forsythe
brothers. The poorer children of
Boston may go there and have their
teeth cared for. 60 dentists are at
work daily.
A smaller though similar project
was started in Rochester, N. Y. by
George Eastman,-of Kodak fame.
This employs from 25 to 30 dentists
and is run at a very low fee.
Much is being accomplished by the
dental hygienist movement which is
spreading over the United States.
Dental hygienists are less expensive

than dentists, and are th'us hired by
many schools and clinics to clean the
children's teeth and give them instruc-
tion, when a dentist could not be se-

MEXICO CITY, July 30.--The dram-
atic struggle between the Roman
Catholic church and the Mexican gov-
ernment enters its crucial phase to-
morrow when the new government's
,religiotsregulations, providing for
the enforcement of the Constitution of
1917, go into effect.
President Calles and his government
have asked their commands military,
administrative and judicial power of
Mexico and the support of the con-
federation of labor. The church has
Kalled it what has been described as a
,capital interdict, a dread measure to
the peaceful and is supported by the
National League for Defence of Re-
ligious Liberty.
The government's stand is that the
church and the state must be sep-
arated and that the church must stay
out of politics; the church's stand is
that it is being persecuted by a hostile
Drastic Rule Made
The government regulations in briefj
are as follows:
No foreign minister of any religion
may function in Mexico; church own-
ership of property is forbidden andi
all such property reverts to the state;
religious instruction in schools is for-
bidden; out door religious ceremonials
and the wearing by priests of their
religious robes outside of their
churches or residences are forbidden;
periodicals of a religious nature are
forbidden to comment upon the gov-
ernment's acts or to treat concerning
the action of the government.
Punishment may range from a fine
of 500 pesos or 15 days in prison or
both up to six years imprisonment, or!
"additional punishment" as the court
may care to impose. Trial by jury inI
.these cases is not provided for.
Policy Meets Opposition
Enforcement of these constitutional
provisions, which date back to the
Constitution of 1857 has met with de-
termined opposition by the Church.
Archbishop Moray del Rio has issued
an order to all priests not to perform
their offices after midnight tonight
,when the regulations go into effect.
Baptisms, confirmations, marriages
and other priestly offices have b'een
performed by the thousands in the
past few weeks. Rarely has a country
seen such a wave of religious atten-

end the ignorance of the MexicanI

tyranny and 10 years of revolution," a
confederation of labor chief said. "It
is this ignorance which the clergy is
attempting to use by fixing in the
minds of comrades and our people
