DETROIT TIMES NEUTRALITY PAYS FAIR BOOSTERS Promoters of German Bazaar Now Work for Allies WILL SHARE IN GATE RECEIPTS Messrs.

They have established offices in St. Andrew'.* hall, No. 100 < ongress *L, east, and are preparing compre hensive plans to stage another mammoth bazaar In the name of charity for the benellt of the war sufferer* who owe allegiance to Great Britain and her allies. The armngemuJit uiazie between the German organizations and the partnership of Stone and Talbot was that the promoters were to re ceive 26 per cent of the gate re ceipts and 25 per cent of the amount received from the sale of i concessions. Much of tbe money realized by the Germans, however, was through contributions and i sale of articles donated to the ba zaar. It is presumed that a similar ar rangement has been made between the allied societies and Stone and Talbot. They have promoted such enterprises in several large cities In the middle west; It Is their bust aes*. A meeting of the various French. Belgian. Polish. English, Scotch and Welsh societies will be held In St Andrew's hall. Monday evening, at which further plans will he dis cussed.

Are Your Teeth Sound and (’lean? 1 Many a man, who would be in sulted and ready to fight if you told him he was dirty, goes through life complacent and unashamed, with dirty teeth. Many a man. who would grow sick with horror and disgust if he saw the flesh of his hand or face gradu ally decaying, witnesses without concern the dally disintegration of his teeth. Why should this be? Why do some men bathe, shave, have their hair cut and wear decent clothes, and yet neglect their teeth? Why do they not realize that decayed teeth are not only unpleasant to look at, creative of bad breath and a grea» handicap in mastication, but a serious menace to health? Teeth, unless kept clean, are breeding places for germs. Teeth rot because food is allowed to stay between them, creating a destruc tive acid which eats Its way through the enamel and starts a cavity. Germs, which are always present in the mouth, do the rest. The possibilities of this condition. If not corrected hy proper care and dentistry, are manifold. The whole tooth may he destroyed, the infec tion gradually extending to other teeth. It may even go so far as to pass Into the Jaws, causing poison ing of the bone. This is a serious condition, and very apt to involve much pain and some surgery. A good digestion is often ruined by bad teeth. As research and the art of diagnosis along this line pro gress, all sorts of distressing and debilitating conditions are being traced to bad teeth. Igist but not least, there is the ever-present danger of toothache, which everyone will agree is no fun! To care for a normally healthy set of teeth is not difficult. It does not Involve much time or trouble or expense First —Clean them morning and night with a brush and tooth-pow der. Prurh up and down, not across the teeth. Do not brush too hard Brush not only to clean, but to re move thcjftughly the focal which has accumulated between them.
