"Only Yesterday" is the most moving picture
of the year and for such sincere sentiment Mar-
garet Sullavan is deserving of the highest praise.
The only flaw therein is perhaps that the picture
is over-sentimental but the sincerity of that point
is done with such care that it is overshadowed
when one gets into the swing of it.
Director Stahl's handling of author Allen's novel
"Only Yesterday" in making. it the powerful
drama that it is is an achievement in itself. The
casting fits in with his discriminating touch and
introduces Margaret Sullivan for the first time
on the screen, who gave up a part in the New
York cast of "Dinner At Eight" to come to Holly-
wood to make this picture and "Little Man, What
Now?". Aside from being extremely attractive
Miss Sullivan has grasped the quality which places
her in the front rank of the stars of the day. The
thing that makes her so fine is that her acting
smacks of the real thing; it is a true, honest ef-
fort - something that too many other actresses
need to observe closely. John Boles, the popular
musical star of other years, contributes his share
to the glory by casting off his usual hazy atti-
tude to give us a first rate character in Jim Emer-
son, the financial success, the man who forgdt,
then the man who remembered - but too late.
"Only Yesterday" is a tragedy. It concerns a
girl, Mary Lane, who fell in love with a smart
looking officer just before the war. But the smart
young officer can't seem to recall their meeting
one evening down in Virginia when he returns
from Europe and marries some one else, Mrs.
Emerson (Benita Hume). Then the tragic ele-
ments begin to work and climax on the dreary
day of October 29, 1929 (remember?) and as a
result people commit suicide, go the wrong way,
or are fiat financially - tragedy enters the home
of Mary Lane and her boy Jim, Jr., (Jimmy But-
ler's acting for a young boy of twelve or thirteen
is very good) and here the handkerchief begins
to emerge among the audience. The supporting
cast should not be overlooked as they are all ac-
tors of no mean talent -Billie Burke doesn't
seem to have her usual troubles at first (she al-
ways does have them) but they soon crop out
and they give her that successful performance.
The management probably got so worked up
over the picture that they forgot about the short
subjects. There is only the Paramount News, in
which we see the thrills of the recent Army-Navy
ietin by the National Student League; there is
little use in approaching the Michigan student
with a language strange 'to his ears. It is the so-
cial analysis, not class-conscious phrases that

The Daily means what it says. If.so, it is farther
away from the temper of the student body than
it makes out the N.S.L. to be. A year ago 20% of
the students and 25% of the faculty voted for a
radical candidate on the straw Presidential poll.
During the year the world has moved a long way
from the reactionary stand now taken by The

OF TRENCH MOUTH
ONE OF THE more common of student afflic-
tions and one of the most inconvenient (aside
from its painful aspects) is the rather dreaded
Vincent's infection which stalks about under the
leprous name of "Trench Mouth", according to
an official Health Service report. The name arose
from the too frequent fulminent outbreaks among
American troops during the great war, so fre-
quent that by 1918 the incidence among the
French and British troops had increased from 2
per cent to 23 per cent. The report follows in
The presence of the infection among students is
easily understood when one considers that many
people of varied habits and contacts live in con-
siderable; intimacy in our student dormitories,
boardinghouses, fraternities, and sororities. Thus,
in a period of 48 hours an original infection may
have been transferred by direct and indirect con-
tact to asmany as 300 people. The number of ac-
tive infections which will result depends upon the
virulence and degree of invasion pitted against
the mouth resistance of the students so exposed.
The organisms responsible for this infection are
very frequently the inhabitants of mouths which
show absolutely no manifestation or painful
symptoms of the disease, so that in any large
group of individuals there is always the possibility
of several unsuspecting, involuntary carriers.
Transmission is by mouth discharge and comes
about in a variety of ways spoken of as social
contact. The most important means of speed is
improperly washed and heated eating and drink-
ing utensils. Among the other avenues are: un-
covered coughs and sneezes, hands contaminated
by touching door knobs, handshaking, kissing, and
any other procedure which results in even very
minute amounts of salivary exchange.
Students as a group are within the age range
for the eruption of the third molars (wisdom
teeth). Normal eruption of the third molars( par-
ticularly the lower) is very often a slow and dif-
ficult process and the hood or flap of unabsorbed
gum tissue present for a period of years acts as a
very favorable site both for the carrying of the
invasion and the retention of the hostile micro
The disease is frequently, though not invariably,
associated with lack of oral hygiene and although
such various factors as chronic tonsillitis, syph-
ilis, nephritis, and vitamine deficiency may act
as determining causes, the occurrence is so fre-
quently noted in the absence of any of the above
conditions that any relationship is impossible of
A typical case is readily diagnosed and the
clinical picture is characteristic. Gums are ex-
tremely painful, engorged, swollen, the tissues are
hypersensitive and bleed readily upon the least
provocation. In advanced cases, there is a partial
anaesthetization, the teeth feeling dead and
woody. Always the .saliva is copious and viscid
with a metallic taste and the breath has a char-
acteristic fetid odor. The tongue may become
large and flabby showing identations from con-
tact with lower teeth. There may be a rise in
temperature and an increase in pulse rate, a gen-
eral feeling of malaise, physical and mental dis-
tress with headache and gland enlargement in the
neck. Fatal terminations are seen only when the
infection is superimposed on other diseases. How-
ever, the haphazard treatment by either patient
or operator or both may result in the disease as-
suming a chronic character which may persist for
a year or longer and in the end be responsible for
the loss of the teeth.

To the Editor:-
What is called petty thieving is evidently going
on on the Campus, whether done by outside gangs
or inside careless persons. During the Minnesota
game, the writer went from Morrill's bookstore
on State St. to the General Desk in the Library.
There, laying down some packages and with
them a purse containing only some reading
glasses and notes, which was evidently picked up.'
At the next stop it was missed, but search and
advertising- has so far proved unavailing.
A short time ago, the writer was in a small
store near the Campus, laid down some pack-1
ages, turned away for a moment, and a book
"1001 places to sell Mss". was picked up and never,
Also another person carried out the same pro-
cedure, and lost a purse containing glasses which,
are only valuable to the owner and have to be
replaced at no little expense.
-Evidently the carelessness of some person or
persons more or less dishonorable is resulting in
discomfort, expense, and annoyance to people.

The promiscuous use of nostrums in the forms
of advertised mouth washes and dentifrices and
the extravagant assertions of manufacturers is
responsible for many cases of advanced Vincent's
stomatitis without the usual pain and sloughing
of tissue, but still destructive and infectious in
At the first evidence or suspicion of disease of
the gums, the patient should see a physician or
dentist who, in the presence of Vincent's disease,
will advise a suitable mouth wash to be used
hourly or more often if deemed necessary. The
patient will be advised to refrain from brushing
the teeth until this can be performed without
discomfort, (teeth may be wiped with gauze, later
burned). A light diet with plenty of orange,
lemon or tomato juice will be helpful and the use
of any irritants as condiments, alcoholic bever-
ages, and smoking will be discouraged. Caution
against the spread of mouth discharges will be
given as protection to other people. The dangers
from kissing, the use of common towels, drink-
ing glasses, and pipes will be stressed. The onset
of the disease often is sudden and the need for
immediate and competent attention can not be
