QUEBEC. April 14. (AP)
Brief messages today indicated
that the marooned transatlantic
monoplane Bremen may have
saved enough fuel so that it can
continue its flight if necessary re
pairs can be made with what few
tools are available on Greenly
Island in the straits of Belle Isle
At nrst it was heueved that a
forced landing on the tiny island
had been necessitated by exhaus
tion of the fuel supply but frag
mentary reports today led to tLe
belief that the Bremen came down
chiefly because the pilots bgave
up hope of establishing their posi
tion in the dense fog through
which they wandered for hoars.
If this Is indeed the fact and if
repairs can be made, only enough
fuel would be necessary to fly to
rort baunaers. 50 miles away,
only six or eight gallons, where a
supply suffiicent to continue to
Bill In Congress Would
Transfer Indian Lands
WASHINGTON, April 14.
(AP) A bill to authorize the
secretary of war to transfer a tract
of land in Oregon to the secretary
of the Interior for use by Indiana
now occupying it as a fish camp
site was Introduced today by Rep
resentative Leavltt. republican, of
Montana. The land originally
was acquired as right of way for a
projected boat railway in connec
tion with improvements of The
DaUes-Cellilo section of the Co
New York could be obtained. Only
regular commercial gasoline is
available at Port Saunders, but it
was believed that the Gremen en
glne could be adjusted to use this
Instead of the special fuel It
burned on its ocean flight.
In the meantime while the fliers
were preparing to get out from
their Island prison, plans were
under way from the outside to get
in to them. Because of the nature
o fthe1 ice pack surrounding the
Island and separating it from the
mainland, it was believed to be
accessible to planes only if they
were equipped with sklis.
The first plane of this type left
Mursny bay, Quebec, today pilot
ed by Dr. Louis Culslnier, and was
expected to reach the island dur
ing the night, leaving again to
morrow with the transatlantic1
fliers if they were willing to leave
their own ship behind for the time
being. Another plane was to
start for the island ni the morn
These planes are equipped with
420 horsepower engines and are
capable of 10 miles an hour,

Beside the planes the govern
ment ice steamer Montcalm was
heading for the island but It was
2 SO miles away tonight and no
estimate was possible as to the
time of its probable arrival. It
was hoped to avoid arctic ice in
the Gulf of St. Lawrence by keep
ing well in to shore but heavy ice
was reported close packed in the
straits of Belle Isle, which it was
felt might slacken the Montcalm's

Pyorrhea is an ailment caused by irritation and sub
sequent infection. It sweeps along the gums with the
fury, if not the speed, of an Ohio twister, destroying
all the tissues in its path. First the gums are inflamed
and bleed easily. Then the bony support of the' teeth
is gradually nibbled away and destroyed by the germs
and their products which were the originators of the
The result of all this destruction is the forming of a
pocket all around the sides and base of the tooth. The
more bone that is lost the deeper becomes the pocket.
This pocket acts as a trap for bacterial filth to collect
in. You have probably seen screen wire traps wherein
it was very easy for flies to enter but very hard for
them to get out. That is the sort of trap that is formed
by these pockets.
Bacteria which are so small that they cannot be seen
with the naked eye easily slide down into these pockets
and form pus. Even food debris can work itself down
into permanent residence at the base of the tooth. This
combination of germs, plus food, plus warmth, spells
a further development and increase of pyorrhea.
When the pus and bacteria and general irritation are
removed before too great damage has been done, the
gums heal and again form tightly around the roots.
They can be kept clean with ordinary care.
While surgical treatment of pyorrhea affords a sat
isfactory method of eliminating the disease, many
cases will respond as rapidly and more certainly with
other forms of treatment. The dentist determines how
far the disease has progressed in the mouth and which
method of treatment is advisable in each particular
