'U' RESEARCHERS EXPERIMENT:
Dental Team Transplants Human Teeth Successfully
By BETHANY WASSERMAN
The belief that human teeth can
be transplanted is no longer a
dream, but a definite reality.
A University dental research
team, experimenting for over a?
year, has successfully conducted
yeveral transplantations in hu-
Doctors James K. Avery, Em-
mett R. Costich and James R.
Hayward of the school of dentis-
try, have found that young teeth
are particularly adaptable to
transplantation because of their
immature nerves and blood ves-

mit the fibers to easily adjust to
the blood supply of the jaw.
Final test of a successful trans-
plant comes in several months,
when X-rays show that the tooth
is continuing to grow and exami-
nation shows it is functioning as a
vital part of the dentition.
Experiment on Hamsters
Many tooth transplantations
have been done in the laboratory
on hamsters. These animals have
been used in research because they
are small, plentiful, and have mo-
lars quite similar in structure to
the four-cusp human type.
"By using hamsters, we can
closely duplicate the microscopic
changes that are seen in trans-
planted human teeth and study
the reactions of the tissues. Peo-
ple with successful transplants
don't care to give them up for
study," Dr. Costich explained,
The hamsters are anesthetized
with a barbituate solution and then
placed on special operating boards
while the dentist extracts a tooth.
He can either replant the same
or another socket to another
tions have only recently been per-
formed, but the idea is an old one.
In primitive form it dates to the
Romans when soldiers had to give
their teeth to their superior offi-
Slaves were also instructed to
give up their teeth to their masters
prior to the Emancipation.
Asked about the possibility of a
tooth bank, Dr. Costich explained
that substances such as bone and
tissue can be transplanted and
will be replaced by the host over
a period of time.

More Difficult in Adults

mits the tooth's extraction and

However, this doesn't apply to
teeth once they're developed, they
are there for a lifetime. Once they
are removed from the mouth, there
is no convenient way yet of storing
"This project was probably
prompted by women," the doctor
smilingly suggested. "Their vani-
ty will encourage them to do much
to maintain a beautiful dentition."
"However," he continued, "it is
not feasible to transplant more
than one or two teeth and even
then the patient must be free of
Wisdom Teeth Transplant
"The third molars or wisdom
teeth are at the proper stage of
development for transplantation
in college students and could prob-
ably provide a great deal of insight
into the phenomenon of trans-
plantation," Dr. Costich remarked.
"I'd like to encourage students
who think they could benefit from
such a procedure to come in and
be examined as possible candi-

Pick up your paper every morning and what do you
read? "CRISIS IN HIGHER EDUCATION." That's what you
read. "ENROLLMENT SPIRALLING UPWARD - DESPERATE
NEED FOR MORE CLASSROOMS, MORE TEACHERS." But
classrooms,'alas, do not spring up like mushrooms, nor
teachers like mayflies. So what must we do while we
build more classrooms, train more teachers? We must
get better use out of the classrooms and teachers we now
have. That's what we-must do.
This column,, normally a vehicle of good-humored
foolery, of joy that wrinkled care derides, of laughter
holding both his sides, will today forsake levity to ex-
amine the crisis in higher education. My sponsors, the
makers of Philip Morris Cigarettes, as bonnie a bunch
of tycoons as you will see in a month of Sundays, have
given cheerful consent to this departure. Oh, splendid
chaps they are, the makers of Philip Morris! Oh, darlin'
types they are, fond of home, mother, porridge, the Con-
stitution, and country fiddling! Twinkly and engaging
they are, jaunty and sociable, roguish and winsome, as
full of joy, as packed with pleasure, as brimming with
natural goodness, as loaded with felicity as the ciga-
rettes they bring you in two convenient sizes -regular
in the handy snap-open pack, and new long-size in a
crushproof flip-top box - both available at moderate cost
from your favorite tobacconist. Light one now. Light
either end. No filter cigarette can make that statement.

Let us then, with the gracious connivance of the
makers of Philip Morris - Oh, splendid chaps ! Oh, gra-
cious connivers! -take up the terribly vexing question
of how we can turn out more graduates with campus
facilities as they now exist.
The answer can be given in one word: speedup! Speed
up the educational process. Streamline courses. Elimi-
nate frills. Sharpen. Shorten. Quicken.
Following is a list of courses with suggested methods
to speed up each one.
PHYSICS - Eliminate slow neutrons.
PSYCH LAB- Tilt the mazes downhill. The white
mice will run much faster.
ENGINEERING - Make slide rules half as long.
MUsIc Change all tempo to allegro. (A collateral
benefit to be gained from this suggestion is that once
you speed up waltz time, campus proms will all be over by
10 p.m. With students going home so early, romance will
languish and mharriage counselors can be transferred
to the buildings and grounds department. Also, housing
now used for married students can be returned to the
school of animal husbandry.)
ALGEBRA - If "x" always equals 24, much time-con-
suming computation can be eliminated.
LANGUAGES - Teach all language courses in English.
DENTISTRY - Skip baby teeth. They fall out anyhow.
POETRY - Amalgamate the classics. Like this:
Hail to thee, blithe spirit
Shoot if you must this old gray lead
You ain't no thin' but a hound dog
