Dental Research Team
Developing 'Tooth Bank'
4 A University dental research
team is hard at work on a project
which they hope will lead to the
effective transplantation of live
human teeth, and the successful
storage of live teeth in "tooth
If their research is successful, it
could eventually lead in certain
cases to elimination of the use of
artificial replacements for teeth
that are lost from decay or acci-
dent. It would give the people of
Michigan the opportunity to re-
' piace lost teeth with normal, living
teeth Preservation of more natu-
ral teeth by transplantation would
promote the general good health
of the bone and soft tissues which
support the teeth.
According to Dr. James K. Avery,
assistant professor of Dentistry
and project director, "We know it
is possible to transplant teeth in
humans. It has been done success-
fully in selected cases of young
adults by the other members of
our team, Drs. James R. Hayward
and Emmett R. Costich, of the oral
The sixteenth annual Emer-
gent Voice Conference opens at
Waldenwoods, Hartland, Michi-
gan, August 14 and will close
with a public concert in Cromaine
Hall at 3 p.m., August 26.
Another set of dates, as reported
in the Daily, were in error.
"There are problems to be ironed
out, however," he says, adding that
in order to do tiis, "Individuals
coming to the clinic who could
utilize transplanted teeth are ask-
ed if they would like to partici-
pate. Those who accept are studied
very carefully before a transplant
is made, and their progress follow-
ing the transplant is followed
So far, transplants have only
been made where a first molar is
missing. The individual's own
third molar-or wisdom tooth-is
"As our knowledge of the
mechanics of transplantation is not
complete at the present time,"
says Dr. Avery, "not all of the
transplants have been successful.
The patient loses nothing in such
a situation, however, as he would
have to have had a bridge, even
hae he had not participated in the
study." He also gets his wisdom
The transplantation of teeth is
only one part of the project, which
is being financed by an $8,000 re-
search grant from the State Legis-
lature. While the details and prob-
lems found in transplantation are
being worked out by the oral sur-
gery department, Dr. Avery is
directing a laboratory staff in the
search for an effective method of
storing and preserving teeth.
They hope to find this, using
hamsters and an educated trial
and error system. The hamster-a
small, furry rodent--is a very sat-
isfactory animal to experiment
with because his molars are very
similar, except in size, to human
"Every known process of biologi-
cal preservation will be tried," says
Dr. Avery, "from growing teeth in
test tubes to freezing them. It
will be of interest to attempt to
store teeth after irradiation, a
method currently being used to
preserve bone for grafts."
If a successful means of storage
can be accomplished and the me-
chanical problems found in trans-
planting teeth can be worked out,
collections of teeth. in "tooth
banks" would be started, says Dr.
Avery. He adds that by using
these banks, any prematurely lost
children's or adult's teeth could be
"quickly and efficiently cared for."
DETROIT (A-A member of a
governor's commission to study
hospital and medical care plans'
in Michigan charged today that
the Michigan State Medical So-
ciety and Blue Cross are trying to
block the study.
The charge came from Leonard
Woodcock, United Auto Workers
Vive President, in a letter to Gov.
Williams and George E. Bowles,
chairman of the study commission.
Woodcock, also a member of the
commission, contended there was
evidence that William S. McNary,
Executive Director of Blue Cross,
and Dr. D. Bruce Wiley, Chairman
of the Council of the State Medical
Society, had made "efforts to
block a sulccessful study."
Woodcock expressed regret at
the resignation of Dr. S. J. Axel-
rod, assistant director of the
Bureau of Public Health Econom-
ics at the University of Michigan,
as research director for the study
But, he added, "the important
issue facing the commission is not
the resignation but what prompted
it." He referred to "a letter from
Mr. McNary requesting that other
schools of the University be
brought in" and "a letter from Dr.
Wiley making wild and unsub-
stantiated charges against Dr.
Sinai and Dr. Axelrod."
Thirty-five high school student
publication editors from four Mid-
western states this week are at-

The last of the three 12-day
sessions to be held this summer
opened Monday. The workshop,
now in its fourth year, is an in-
tensive course for students work-

Instruction is given by members
of the University's journalism staff
and two high school advisors.
During each session, the .group

Poker Game Subject
Of Reimann Article
It isn't often that the stake in
a poker game is a county court-
house but it happened once in
Michigan, Lewis C. Reimann writes
in the current issue of "The Michi-
gan Alumnus Quarterly Review."
What at the beginning appeared
to be a harmless contest between
card sharks ni a pioneer com-
munity ended up with the intended
victims holding their guests' money
and the visitors winning a court-
house and the county seat too.
Reimann, who hails from the
north country, says that back in
the early lumbering days Iron
River and Crystal. Falls were in-
fant lumbering and mining towns
of about the same size. Intense
rivalry had sprung up between

Carter took his 8-year-old sister,
Brenda June, out for a spin in
Uncle Jimmy's car yesterday.
They made out all right for a
time, considering that Gary is only
10, almost too short to see over the
wheel and had never soloed before.
In fact, all he knows about driv-
ing he picked up from watching
He almost made it into traffic-
dense downtown Kansas City. A
passing motorist spotted the di-
minutive driver, gave chase and
Gary said it was Brenda who
suggested they get "Uncle Jim-
my's car," for a trip to her girl
friend. Uncle Jimmy, at thetime,
was taking a nap. The children
got his keys from the bedroom.
"I didn't want to go," Gary told
police, "but she kept on naggin'
till I gave in."
Gary was a careful driver
though. He said he halted at every
stop sign on the six mile trip.
The child1ren live with their
mother and stepfather. The uncle
James Mauldin, lives in the same
"Gary," said Uncle Jimmy, "will
be eating his meals standing up
for a long time."
It seems the government records
were housed in Iron River in a.
small frame building which served
as the meeting place for the coun-
CrystalFalls was rankled by the
legislature's choice of Iron River
for the county seat, so the politi-
cians of that town hatched a plot
to stage a poker game as a blind
to pilfering the records.
The Iron River gamblers fell for
the trap and soon the click of
poker chips accompanied the clink
of whisky glasses. Throughwthe
haze of cigar smoke the whole
village of Iron River gathered to
watch the red-hot game.
With the Crystal Falls intriguers
were Frank Scadden, newspaper
publisher, and Burt Hughitt, a
lumberman. These two, Reimann
states, had been elected to sneak
off during the game to the tempo-
rary courthouse and steal the re-
The back door of the "court-
house" had been left unlocked, as
had the safe, so the men quickly;
packed the books on a hand sled
and headed for the railroad depot.
They bribed the conductor, a Crys-
tal Falls man, to allow them to
ride in the caboose and stow the
records and sled under a seat,
Upon reaching Stager, the pair
got off the train, loaded their.
booty onto the hand sled again
and set off for Crystal Falls, five
miles away. There the sheriff
placed the books in a jail cell and
set a guard over them.
When the theft was discovered
bythe county clerk in Iron River,
a mass nieeting was held. But the
angry citizens ran up against a
vigilante committee which had set
up a barricade in front of the jail
where the books were cached.
