AMUNDSEN NOT YET
ON DOFOII POLE
National Geographic Society
Receives Denial of Recent
Capt. Roald Amundsen, discoverer
of the south pole and now leader of
a north polar expedition. has not left
his ship, the Maude, for a final dash
to the pole. The denial of the recent
report from London that the Amund
sen dash had actually begun was re
ceived in Washington today by Gil
bert Grosvenor, president of the Na
tional Geographic'Society, in a cable
gram from the Norwegian Geograph
According to the earlier report from
Christianla, published in London March
26, the explorer began the dash across
the polar ice field accompanied by only
two men. Had this report proved
true Amundsen's dash, if successful,
might have brought him to his goal
on the same day on which the pole
was discovered by Peary in 1909
Ctntrarj to Plans.
Geographers who are familiar with
Capt. Amundsen's plans will sot be
surprised at the denial of the report
that he has left his ship, for such a de
parture at this time would he con
trary to all the plans of his expe
When he left Norway in July. 1918, It
was Amundsen's Intention to allow the
Maude to be frozen In the Ice, following
Nansen's example in 1893.
Nansen was frozen into the Ice Sep
tember 22. 1898, and not until March 14,
1896. did he reach a point where he de
cided to leave fcis ship?400 miles from
the goal. But this distance was too
great for a successful dash to the pole.
DM Nat Let end to LeWVe Skip.
Profiting by Nansen's experience,
Amundsen did not Intend to leave his
ship so far from his goal. It was gen
erally estimated that the drift across
the Polar seas would take three years.
Therefore, barring unforeseen circum
stances, It is not probable that the
leader of the present expedition will
leave his ship for a dash to the pole
until Ull. The coming summer months
probably will be spent In drifting, and If
the currents and fee behave as they did
with Nansen's ship; the Fram. the
Maude by next spring will be brought
to a point from which Amundsen can
strike for the pole with every hope of
Scientists are eagerly awaiting news
concerning the tue Amundsen will be
able to make of the two airplanes which
he carried with him into the arctic.

Teeth You Envy
You See Them Everywhere Today
All Statements Approved by High Dental Authorities
There ift a new method of teeth clean
ing used on millions of teeth today. Wher
ever you look you can see the results-?
teeth that glisten, teeth uniquely clean.
Those envied teeth are simply daily
treated for cloudy, clinging film. And the
method is at your call. A request will
bring it to you, and your own teeth in a
week will show you what it does.
The Trouble is Film
Teeth become coated with a film. That
viscous film which you feel with your
tongue clings to teeth. It enters crevices
The tooth brush does not end it. The ?
ordinary dentifrice does not dissolve it.
The soapy tooth paste even helps it cling.
Twice a year, perhaps, you have a
dentist remove it. But in the meantime it
may do a ceaseless damage. Thus mil
lions find that, despite all brushing, teeth
discolor and decay.
Tooth troubles have been constantly
increasing. Few people have escaped
them. And the modern dentist knows
that most of them have been caused by
How Film Wrecks Teeth
It is this film-coat that discolors?not
the teeth. Film is the basis of tartar. It
holds food substance which ferments and
forms acid. It holds the acid in contact
with the teeth to cause decay.
Millions of germs breed in it They,
with tartar, are the chief cause of pyor
Dentists long have known this. Dental
science has for years been seeking a film
combatant, and now it has been found.
Able authorities have proved its efficiency
by clinical and laboratory tests.
The method is now embodied in a den
tifrice called Pepsodent With it are com
bined two other modern requisites. Lead
ing dentists everywhere are urging its
daily use. And millions of people have
already discovered its effects. '
The New-Day Method
Pepsodent is based on pepsin, the di
gestant of albumin. The film is al
buminous matter. The object of Pepso
dent is to dissolve it, then to constantly
But pepsin must be activated, and the
usual agent is an acid harmful to the
teeth. So this method long seemed barred.
Science, however, has discovered a harm
less activating method, and active pepsin
can be every day employed.
Authorities agree that this tooth paste
meets other new requirements. So it
represents in three ways the ideal modern
dentifrice. And it means a new era in
Let It Prove Itself
The results of Pepsodent are quick and
apparent. Anyone can feel and see them.
One can never doubt after one week's
use that it must supplant old methods.
So a 10-Day Tube is being sent to
everyone who asks. A book goes with it
to explain all the effects. In every home
someone should try it, for film removal
is of very great importance. Send the
coupon for a ten-day test, and judge the
results for yourself.
Compare your teeth now with your
teeth in ten days, and you will never re
turn to old methods.
