Cities Protect
Historic Sites
CHICAGO (UP) A number
ot cities are taking steps to pre
serve, protect and even recon

The American Society of Plan

areas from declining Into slums.
In Charleston, S. C, a special
zone known as the "old and his

established by local law. It cov

greatest concentration of early
The city has a Board ot Archi

appropriateness of exterior arch

buildings to be erected or altered
in the area.
Natchez, Miss., has an architec
tural plan with a local ordinance
to back it up. This plan deals w;th
tlie outside design and appearance
of 19 historic buildings in a 20-
block area surrounding the cen
ti-al business district.
The purpose is to retain a har
monious arrangement, without
necessarily keeping everything the
way it was.
The Vieux Carre section of New
Orleans, where French and Spnn

protected not only for its histori
cal value but for its worth as a

CHICAGO (UP) Many chil

cripples because ignorance about
dental health is still too wide

by dental decay alone in terms
of tooth loss, difficulty in eating,
blighted appearance and even fa

Lynch said emphasis on chil
dren's dental health is the only
sound approach to the nation's
dental problem.
He urged that the following pro
cedures be carried out for all chil
dren to help promote lite-long den

1. A nutritious diet low in sweets.
2. Proper use of the toothbrush
right after eating.
3. Early detection and treatment
of dental defects to prevent more
serious ills later.
