Steinke’s kick and covered it in the
From all appearances it seem
ed that the Aggies had a score,

by a number of papers.

“The soft tissues of the mouth
require as careful watching as the
teeth, to keep them in a healthy
condition,” according to Dr. Geo.
W. Cox, State Health Officer.
“One of the more common dis
eases to which these soft tissues
are subject is a germ known as
‘Vincent’s infection” also called
‘trench mouth’ from the fact that
it was very prevalent among sol
diers in crowded camps and
trenches during the World War.
These two names are given to
the disease when it affects the
gums and supporting structures of
the teeth; sometimes it affects
the throat and tonsils, in which
case it is called ‘Vincent’s angina.’
“One peculiarity of the germs
that cause ‘trench mouth’ and Vin
cent’s angina’ is that they may
live and thrive in the absence of
oxygen. They enter the mouth
and become fixed between the
teeth, under the gum margin and
beneath the margins of fillings and
crowns. They grow in and about
decayed teeth. They are more
likely to be active and cause the
disease to develop in mouths that
s not kept clean and not well
cared for than in clean, healthy
“The infection may he picked up
through the use of common drink
ing cups, dishes or cooking uten
sils that have not been thoroughly
cleaned, through drinking from in
sanitary fountains and in other
ways. It can be spread to others,
just as colds are, through cough
ing and sneezing.
“The disease is highly contagious
and spreads very easily from per
son to person. It is characterized
by bleeding and sore gums, and
finally by ulcers in the soft tissues.
In acute form the disease is pain
ful and causes great discomfort.
In extreme cases the infection may
spread through the entire system
with very serious results.
“Of course, not all bleeding or
sore gums or bad breath are due
to ‘trench mouth,’ but at the first
indication of such symptoms—no
matter what the cause—a doctor
or dentist should be consulted
promptly and his advise and in
struction should he followed with
the utmost care. Those who de
velop the disease must also take
every precaution to keep from
passing the infection on to others.”
