Wash Mouth With Soap Says Noted Physician The mother who used to use soap to wash the mouth of her young hopeful who used bad words, has been .supposedly relegated to the past. Yet here comes the statement of a noted pathologist that "The Best way of keeping the mouth clean is by daily scrubbing with ordinary soap and water, gargling the suda and repeating the process unfii the mouth feels clean." This statement comes from Dr. James Ewing, professor of pathology at Cornell University medical school, and ought to be good news to the parents who wish to keep their child ren's mouths clean —for there is al ways soap and water available. Apparently it makes no difference whether one uses the kind that floats, or the 99% pure, or the kind the grocer him on the middle shelf which he always uses in his bargain list. Soap, just soap, is all that is pre scribed. "Things is getting mighty mixed, Mandy," said Farmer Corntossel, "mighty mixed." "What's the matter?"
