This is a beginning. We are submitting to you, gentle readers, the product
of weeks of toil and labor on the part of the Annual Board. We offer no apolo-
gies. If it fails to meet your approval, remember we have done our best and
that no little time and energy have been spent in its preparation. Of troubles we
have had many, but most of them are past, forgotten, while the joys live in our
We have hoped to bind closer those bonds of fellowship formed during
our college career and to create a greater love for our alma mater. If we have
succeeded, tell us so and your words will more than repay us for the energy ex-
pended in this work, while if it is not as we have striven to make it we hope you
will grant us the charity of silence.
We have launched the first Dentos and trust that it shall be a yearly event
in the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. One of the first tasks was the selec-
tion of a name, and we hope that the name selected may be considered worthy by
the succeeding classes.
We have handed out jokes and jabs generously, yet only against those
who we thought would enjoy them, and have left out slams on those whose feel-
ings were questionable.
We are indebted to Dr. C. N. Johnso n for suggesting the title of this
We also gratefully acknowledge the kind help received from Dr. C. X.
Johnson, Dr. P. G. Puterbaugh, Dr. J. E. Schaeffer, Dr. E. D. Coolidge, and all
other members of the faculty who have assisted in any way whatever-. To those
of the student-body who have contributed material, to the publisher, engraver
and photographers we are greatly indebted for their careful and prompt work.

TRUMAN W. BROPHY
Prof. Truman William Brophy was born in Will County, 111., April 12. 1848.
Early in lite he resolved to become a dentist, and. after a thorough course in the
common and academic schools of Elgin, and in Dyrenforth's Business College and the
Atheneum of Chicago, he entered the dental office of Dr. J. O. Farnsworth. The death
of his preceptor soon after the beginning of his new work left to Dr. Brophy a large
practice, and he was soon impressed with the need of a systematic education in this
Accordingly, he entered and graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Dental
Surgery, in Philadelphia, which was then the center of medical and dental education.
Following his return to Chicago and the resumption of practice, he graduated from
Rush Medical College in 1880. Almost immediately afterward the faculty tendered to
him the chair of dental pathology and surgery, in token of the splendid scholarship
exhibited in his work. This position he filled for a number of years.
In 1883 the first regular course of work in the Chicago College of Dental Surgery
was opened. This was the result of months and years of effort, beginning" as long
before as 1874, when the first agitation was begun for a dental school of this kind.
Prof. Brophy w-as foremost in the plans and work for the forming of this school, and in
the anxious months preceding the opening of the school, his indomitable will and
ceaseless energy were largely responsible for the success which crowned the efforts of
the men who were so deeply concerned in the movement. The present site of the
institution was his selection and through his advocacy was finally chosen.
Prof. Brophy has been dean of the faculty since the organization of the college,
and professor of oral surgery as well. < In each week he gives a lecture to the senior
'class on oral surgery, and once a week gives a clinical demonstration of his methods
He has contributed largely to dental and medical literature during the years of
his practice, both current publications and works of reference. For some time past he
has had in preparation a work on oral surgery which will shortly be published, giving
to the profession at large the benefit of his remarkable achievements as a surgeon.
While Prof. Brophy operates with success in all branches of the field of oral
surgery, he has emphasized the value of intra-oral surgery in many instances where
the practice has been otherwise, and his work in cleft-palate and hare-lip operations
has given him a world-wide reputation and made him authority on the subject.
He pioneered the work of successful infant operations for this defect. Against
the judgment of the medical world he advocated early surgical interference for the
correction of this deformity, and by means of the operation, now known everywhere
as the " Brophy Method," proved the correctness of his position.
Prof. Brophy is a member of many dental and medical societies, State, national
and international, and of the Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity. As the representative of
the Chicago College of Dental Surgery in the Institute of Dental Pedagogics and the
National Association of Dental Faculties, he has labored unceasingly for the better-
ment of college conditions, requirements and ideals, and has shown himself always the
friend and champion of the student and of the practitioner.
The value of his instruction and demonstrations, his warm and genial nature, his
friendly interest in the students, his splendid character, all endear him to the student
body, and an acquaintance with him becomes an inspiration that lasts through life.

H. H. THACKER, Ph. G., B. S., D. D. S.
Dr. Thacker was born in Montgomery County, 111., Feb.
His early education was obtained in a country school,
where he received sufficient qualifications to enable him to
become a teacher, which vocation was to serve as a stepping
stone to enable him to gain his coveted wish — a college edu-
cation. In the year 1893 he entered the pharmacy school at
the Valparaiso University, from which he graduated, receiv-
ing the degree of Ph. G. Dr. Thacker never became an ac-
tive pharmacist, as he realized that was not the goal for
which he strove.
In the year 1898 he again entered college, at the Central
Normal College of Danville, Ind., from which he graduated,
securing the degree of B. S. After leaving this college he
entered the dental department of the University of Indian-
apolis, from which he graduated with the highest honors of
his class, gaining the degree of D. D. S. Since graduating
he has conducted a large practice in the city of Brazil, Ind.,
where he resides. Dr. Thacker is a member of the Indiana
State Dental Association and of the Ph. C. Hunt Society.

OTTO C. HUBER, B. Sc, M. D.
Dr. Hulier was born at Morgantown, Penn., Nov. 28. 1884.
After teaching in the common and the high school he en-
tered Valparaiso University, specializing in the sciences, re-
ceiving his degree of B. S. in 1906. Leaving Valparaiso he
enrolled at the Chicago College of Medicine and Surgery,
completing the course in 1912.
While at Valparaiso University Dr. Huber taught analytic-
al chemistry, which branch, with histological, bacteriologic-
al and pathological laboratory work, he taught while a
student at the medical college.
Dr. Huber is a member of the Odd Fellow Lodge and a
member of the Phi Chi Fraternity.
F. S. SPERA, D. D. S.
Dr. Spera was born in Chicago April 4, 1884. After finish-
ing high school here he began work in a dental office, which
work he pursued for ten consecutive years. In the year
1908 he began the study of dentistry at the Chicago College
of Dental Surgery. Graduating in the year 1911 he began
practicing at 2204 South Albany Avenue, Chicago. Dr. Spera
is assistant demonstrator in crown and bridge work at the
college, spending half of the time here and the other half at
his office. Dr. Spera is secretary-treasurer of the Alumni
Association of this college.

HARRY A. ALBRIGHT.
" Bath House John."
On Oct. 9, 1885. on a farm near Kankakee, 111., there came
into being a baby boy, who, on blossoming into manhood,
was to bear the burden of being at the head of our class roll,
by virtue of the fact that the first letter of his name was
"A" — Harry A. Albright. We say " burden " advisedly, for it
is no laughing matter to be called upon by every instructor
and at every class, or to enter the lecture room ten seconds
after the beginning of roll call, thus losing credit for attend-
ance and attention at that lecture or quiz. Harry attended
the high school at Kankakee for two years, and a State nor-
mal for three and a half years, after which he taught school
three years and was president of the Teachers' Association
of Kankakee County. He held the office of secretary during
our freshman year, and in our senior year is class prophet.
He is a member of the Dentos board. He will practice at
OSCAR R. BRANDENBURG ASA
Oscar R. Brandenburg, whose knowledge of oral surgery
was obtained by association with Dr. Brophy's banner as-
sistant in his junior year, was born May 4. 1889. at Wilton.
Wis. He attended the little red school at Wilton and also
the high school, after which he graduated from the Wiscon-
sin Business University at La Crosse, and the La Crosse Mu-
sical Conservatory. During his high-school course " Bran-
dy " was a member of a debating team which won an inter-
county debating contest. He resides at No. 618 South Fifth
Street, La Crosse, Wis., in which city he will practice.
WELLS T. BROCKBANK
" The Apostle."
The subject of this little sketch originated among the hills
of western L T tah at a small place which is now called Span-
ish Fork. This happened twenty-one years ago last St. Pat-
rick's Day. Since then Wells, for such is our hero's name,
has been struggling toward the height of his ambition in the
professional world. After absorbing everything which Span-
ish Fork had to offer in the educational line, he went to Pro-
vo, Utah, where he graduated from the B. Y. U, and then
came to us. He will return to Spanish Fork, make good his
promise to "the girl he left behind," and then begin the prac-
tice of honest dentistry among the Indians.
GEORGE S. BELL ~*<I>
Chetek is a good old town — right on a regular lake — up in
Wisconsin. It's noted for two things — it's a summer resort,
and the birthplace of George S. Bell. George blew into
Chetek on Aug. 14, 1889, during the most profitable summer
season the lake settlement has ever known. After getting
his sheepskin from the C. H. S.. he helped pa edit the Chet-
ek " Hot Blast " and swept the postoffice every morning.
Then he sold stamps all day, put up the horses for the R. F.
D. carriers at night, and there was nothing to do till the
morning. Some town in this U. S. A. is going to have a new
dentist, but we're quite sure it won't be Chetek.
ROSCOE C. BRATTEN ASA
Roscoe C. Bratten, who, in his freshman and junior years
could recite extracts from Gray's Anatomy, word for word,
which he did in a highly-pitched monotone, was born May
17, 1890, at Edgerton, Ohio. After graduating from the Ed-
gerton High School, in 1907, " Brat " responded to the call
of " Back to the soil," and up to the time he entered the Chi-
cago College of Dental Surgery he devoted his time to fol-
lowing the plow and riding the rake. After graduation he
will return to the State in which he, William McKinley and
President Taft were born, and take up the practice of den-
L. J. C. BERGE, D. F. M. P., D. E. D. P.
L. J. C. Berge was born Oct. 22, 1883, in the Haute Ga-

lege, from the Faculty of Medicine of Paris, from which he
received the degree of D. F. M. P., and from the Dental
School of Paris, receiving the degree of D. E. D. P. He was
president during all his dental course and still retains that
office of the " Federation des Etudiant en Chirugie Dentaire

JOSEPH A. BELKOFER ASA
" Saner Kraut Joe."
" Sauer Kraut Joe" is a pet name bestowed upon Mr. Bel-
kofer by the author, who, unable to think of any nickname
ever having been applied to him, supplied the above to fill
the space allotted for the same. Joseph A. Belkofer was
born June 11, 1885 at Maple Grove, Mich. Joe began life
as a tiller of the soil, and afterward practiced a special line
of surgery, namely, the amputation of certain appendages of
the skin, in which line he has been remarkably successful.
Mr. Belkofer's home is at Chesaning, Mich., and he intends
to practice in Chicago.
HERBERT A. BECHT
Herbert was born at The Hague, Holland, Jan. 6, 1882.
After attending the Gymnasium of Delft he came to Ameri-
ca and entered the University of Pennsylvania, where he
graduated from the dental department in 190S. Wishing to
obtain the best dental education in the country he came to
the C. C. D. S., where he has taken a post-graduate course.
Lir. Becht expects to practice at The Hague, Holland.
LUTHER C. COX =**
On Oct. 3, 1909, a lean, lanky, sunburned, curly-haired
freshman arrived in the college infirmary, scraped the New
Mexico mud from his red-topped boots, handed a crisp five-
case note through the bars to the registrar's clerk, and said:
" Luther C. Cox is my name.
Here, take these checks.
That's only a part of the roll I've got
In the old territory of New Mex.
I was born in '83 —
July IS, Stratford, N. C.
Practice? I think I'll go
To old Caroline, or my New Mexico."
ORA M. CHAPPELL S*$
The silence of Ora Mann became so conspicuous in his
freshman year that one of his senior fraternity brothers
dubbed him " Flannel," and the name still clings to him. It
was explained at the time that this name was a contraction
of a compound word, the other element of the compound be-
ing " mouth." Considering " Flannel's " non-committal incli-
nation, we are unable to see what prompted his senior friend
to bestow upon him so inapplicable a nickname. " Flannel "
began talking Feb. 7, 1886, at Elgin, 111., where he graduated
from the high school in 1906. He took up the engineering-
course at the University of Pennsylvania, to which he devot-
ed two years. He was second vice president of our class in
his freshman year and acted as master of ceremonies and
chapter correspondent to the Xi Psi Phi quarterly during his
junior year. He will practice in Elgin.
WADE C. CLYNE A5A
" 50c Dick."
"Fifty Cent Dick" began his adventures at Joliet, 111..
Aug. 2, 1884. After finishing school at Joliet " Dick " went
forth in quest of more knowledge to the University of Val-
paraiso, Ind. Obtaining all that Prof. H. B. Brown had to of-
fer, he returned to the " Prison City," where he accepted a
position as shipping clerk, but that failing to fulfill his ambi-
tions, " Dick " decided to be a professional man, and joined us
at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery Oct. 4, 1909. Dur-
ing the freshman year he was class treasurer, and senior
year, class historian. " Dick " also had the honor of worthy
master of the Delta Sigma Delta during his senior year.
When in Joliet look him up.
JAMES J. CARRUTHERS.
" Short-cut Jim."
James J. Carruthers, author of a recent publication en-
titled " Short Cuts to Shell Crowns," was born Dec. 19, 1885,
at Thornton, Ontario. James spent a considerable portion
of his early life on a Canadian farm, and it was through his
progressiveness that a great many of the modern labor-sav-
ing devices, such as the binder, the double furrow plow and
the ten-foot rake, were brought into use in the King's do-
minion. He graduated from the Elliston, Ont., High School
in 1907 and intends to practice in Illinois.

WILLIAM A. CRONIN ASA
"Three cheers for the Irish!" City Cork, Ireland, surely
was greatly honored on March 18, 1889, when this good-look-
ing individual opened his eyes. After growing up to a fair
sized boy he graduated from the St. Ignatius High School.
" Pat " was one of the good-natured chaps that joined the
Rah. rah boys at the C. C. D. S. Oct. 4. 1900. A card will
always reach " Pat " at 3918 West Polk St., Chicago.
RAPHAEL A. DeROME *fi
Raphael A. De Rome was born Dec. 6, 1889, in Chicago,
where he still resides at No. 1017 North Sacramento Boule-
vard. He attended the public schools and John Marshall
High School, after which he set about to establish a new
universal language, which he thought would displace Es-
peranto in a very few years. Bringing it to the C. C. D. S.
in 1909 he was unable to convince any of his classmates of
its usefulness. However, we bear him using it every day
in the infirmary and in the laboratories, one of his com-
mon expressions, in making suggestions to others, being,
" Do it wid dat, Al." Mr. De Rome will practice in Illinois.
TITUS DOMURAT *Q
In 1910. Dr. Car)-, our professor in chemistry, discovered
that there was but one man in the class who knew anything
about chemistry, and that man. because he knew the formula
for washing soda, was Titus Domurat. On that day Dr.
Cary honored him with the name of Newth. This " chemist
laureate " of our class was born Jan. 4, 1888, in Chicago,
where he attended the public schools and graduated from the
Lake High School in 1906. Before becoming interested in
dentistry he devoted his time to the operation of printing
presses. He resides at No. 1804 West 20th Street. Chicago,
and will remain in Chicago after graduation.
J. GEORGE DENTON =**
J. George Denton, erstwhile pharmacy student, hockey
team manager and captain of a Lake Erie whaling crew, was
born March 9. 1881. at Port Dalhousie. Ontario. After com-
pleting the school course at Port Dalhousie, "Cap " attended
the Ontario College of Pharmacy for several years, leaving
there to accept a position with a large wholesale drug firm
in Chicago. Since becoming a dental student "Cap " has
been the Jupiter of the fraternal solar system, having been
active in things Xi Psi Phi since his initiation into that fra-
ternity. He served as president of Lambda Chapter, Xi Psi
Phi, in 1911-12, and was delegate to the meeting of its su-
preme chapter at Baltimore in February. He will practice in
WAID DOTY ASA
" Environment shapes the career of many a man." This
saying works out admirably in the case of Mr. Doty. Waid
was born March 20, 1878, at Racine, Ohio, and afterward
moved to Chicago, where he attended the Chicago Business
College for two years. After completing the business course
Waid became a salesman, his article of trade being Portland
cement. Constant contact with this article inspired him to-
ward the handling of finer grades of cement, until his desire
to manipulate the phosphoric acid variety led him to dentis-
trv. He will practice in Chicago, where he resides at No.
5946 Cedar Street.
HARRY C. DOYLE ASA
■' Baby Doll."
Valparaiso, Ind., has something to boast of other than the
fact that it is the home of A. M. Brown's university, and
that, though it may seem trivial to persons not familiar with
the difficulties attendant upon cornet playing, is that it is the
birthplace of Harry C. Doyle. " Baby Doll," as they have
called him since he was a freshman, was born June 9, 1890.
He graduated from the Valparaiso High School in 1908 and
attended Yalpo L T . one year, after which he became a musi-
cian of considerable ability. He was a member of the Col-
lege Orchestra in his freshman year, and in his junior year
conducted the orchestra which furnished the music for our
junior dance. He will locate in Chicago.

HAROLD E. DEVEREAUX ASA
Harold E. Devereaux, whose inquisitiveness was the cause
of several interesting explanations by Dr. Borland in our
junior physiology class, was born at Edgerton, Wis.. April
26. 1889. He graduated from the high school at Oregon,
Wis., in 1909, and in the fall of that year matriculated at the
C. C. D. S. During his senior year his mysterious disappear-
ances have been numerous and always seemed to fall on Fri-
day afternoons. However, on Monday mornings he would
always appear bright and fresh again, after, it is thought,
several days' company with, Wilcoxically speaking, the
" loved one." He has not decided where he will locate.
HENRY L. DEVNEY ASA
" Hank the Hermit."
Pine Island, Minn., became the hermitage of Hank Nov.
12. 1890. and up to Oct. 1, 1909, he contented himself with
the company of the beasts of the field and the fowls of the
air. One spring day " Hank's " elder brother returned from
Chicago, where he was attending the dental college, wearing
a suit of store clothes and store boots. When his brother
returned to Chicago, " Hank " trudged along at his side, car-
rying his carpet bag in one hand and in his other the price of
store clothes, etc. His hermit days must now be referred to
in the past tense, for in these days of late suppers, etc..
"Hank" is one of the " fussers " of his fraternity. He will
practice in Oklahoma.
JESSE H. ELLSWORTH
Jesse issued forth into this wide world at Payson, Utah,
July 2. 1886. Utah has been short a mechanic since Jesse
joined us at the C. C. D. S. in 1909. "Cotton Top" expects
to hang his shingle at Pleasant Grove. Utah.
A. F. J. E. EILERTS de HAAN
The Wild Man of Borneo."
A. F. J. E. Eilerts de Haan was born June 7, 1891, at Sinka-
wang, Island of Borneo. Netherlands East India. Eilerts
emphatically denies the report which was given out by one
of his countrymen to the effect that his feet became acquaint-
ed for the first time with leather shoes on the day of his
leaving the old world, and declares that only fishermen and
farmers wear wooden shoes in these, the days of the Prince
Consort and Queen Wilhehnina. Mr. de Haan has a diplo-
ma from an East Indian high school. He studied dentistry
in Utrecht, Holland, for two years and for six months in
Berlin. He will practice in the East Indies. Present home
address: Pieter Bothstraat 5, Amersfourt. Holland.
WILLIAM W. EVANS ASA
Another of the married men of our class is William \V.

Anti-Plug Tobacco League. Mr. Evans was born Oct. 19,
1889. at Peoria, 111. He graduated from the Normal High
School, at Normal, 111., in 1907, and immediately began his
warfare against the Indian weed. " Bill " established a prec-
edent in the class in 1910 in solving the restaurant and " cof-
fee and " problems by taking unto himself a bride and estab-
lishing a little restaurant for two, which example several of
his classmates have followed. He will hang out his shingle
CHARLES R. FRENCH *n
Charles R. French, who in his freshman and junior years,
when called upon to recite, talked so long and loud that the
quiz masters were compelled to interrupt him that others
might recite, was born May 3. 1890, at Joliet, 111. After ab-
sorbing his fill of Joliet education he went to work on a rail-
road as a clerk, and since then has enjoyed the orivilege of
that railroad's passenger trains daily between Joliet and Chi-
cago. Mr. Erench expects to locate in Chicago. To him be-
longs the responsibility for the appearance in the Dentos
of the C. C. D. S. Psalm, which, he says, was written by the
sweetest girl in the world.

ARTHUR E. FLOTO ASA
Arthur E. Floto was born Sept. 19, 1888. at Dixon, 111.,
where he attended the public schools and graduated from the
North Dixon High School in 1907. Following in the foot-
steps of Ichabod Crane, " Flotz " became a school teacher
and sang in the choir of a rural church, but after that event-
ful night of the quilting party and the encounter with the
headless horseman, instead of becoming a justice of a five-
pound court, as Ichabod did, he entered the University of
Chicago. After spending a year at the university he entered
the C. C. D. S. He was historian of the Delta Sigma Delta
Fraternity. " Flotz " will practice in North Dakota.
EDWARD A. FIERSTEN *Q
Edward A. Fiersten, commander-in-chief of the " Joys,"
was born March 24, 1890, in Chicago. After attending the
public schools and the high school he took a two-year course
at the Lewis Institute and then joined us in our march on
dentistry. Since Oct. 3, 1909, the "Glooms " have been put to
•riot in every engagement in which he was in command, save
one in our junior year. On that occasion a checked facing
and an unprotected incisal on his part brought about a vic-
tory for the "Glooms." under the command of Dr. J. R.
Watt. He resides at No. 1407 South California Avenue, and
will practice in this city.
H. J. FAUCONNIER, M. D.
H. J. Fauconnier was born in Liege, Belgium, Nov. 10,
1885. He received the degree of doctor of medicine at the
University of Liege in 1910, and during his course at that in-
stitution was " chef de clinique of mental diseases." After
graduation he entered the army as an army doctor, which
position he left a year later to become assistant professor of
physiology at the University of Liege, where he distin-
guished himself in research work. He then went to Paris,
where he began the study of dentistry, and after one year
came to the C. C. D. S. He will return to Belgium.
" Big J awn."
It would be folly to attempt to do justice to " Big Jawn "
in a biography occupying the space of only a few lines.
Therefore we will say nothing of his pleasing personality,
his high ideals, nor his ability to make gold foil stick in
saucer-shaped cavities, but will confine ourselves to the
meager facts we have at hand. Mr. Gerring was born
March 15, 1877, at W'yanet, 111. After he finished school he
entered the railway mail service as a clerk, which position
he retained until after he began the study of dentistry. His
permanent address is No. 303 Fredonia Avenue, Peoria, 111.
He will practice in Illinois.
JOHN J. GRIFFYN
" Johan " was born at Arnhem, Holland, March 25, 1885.
After pursuing the study of dentistry and graduating at the
University of Utrecht, Holland, Johan came to the Chicago
College of Dental Surgery to further pursue the study of
dentistry. Dr. Griffyn will be permanently located at Rotter-
NICHOLAS D. GIANOLIS
Our first physiology quiz in our freshman year brought
out more than only facts concerning that subject, for it was
during this memorable hour that Nicholas D. Gianolis re-
ceived his nickname of "Cheese," which has lingered with
him and will continue to do so until he returns to his native
country. Let us not mention how this nickname came about.
He was born at Piali Tegea. Greece, June 16, 1886, -and is a
.graduate of the Tripolis Gymnasium in that country. He
will return to Greece and practice in Athens.

FRANCIS HAGSTROM ASA
Ethical dentistry received a stanch supporter when the
fairy crept into the city of Stillwater, Minn., Dec. 2, 1882,
and opened the eyes of Francis — said Francis quickly grow-
ing to manhood on the Montana plains, near Lewistown,
where he learned to stick to a bucking bronco. He later be-
came a real rancher. Fate, however, was not to let "Skeet-
er's " ambition end as a rancher, and in 1909 led him to the
Chicago College of Dental Surgery.
Francis is chairman of the senior Dentos board and has
contributed freelv to the success of that book.
MORDA S. HENSON =*<J>
Morda S. Henson's twenty-second birthday fell on the
twenty-seventh of last September, hence Hence was born
Sept. 27. 1889, and it happened at Clinton, 111. His father
was chief of police at Clinton, hence " Hence " isn't such a bad
kid. He's not a bad looking gink, either, which accounts to
a certain extent for the well-worn path to that last chair —
worn by the ladies, large and small — who came to him from
as far as Park Ridge to have their masticatory apparatuses
attended to. He is responsible for a great many improve-
ments on the old methods of dentistry, one of which is the
" machine drawer filling," — a restoration made of temporary
stopping, which, on becoming dislodged, he instructs the pa-
tient to place in the top machine drawer. He has participat-
ed in numerous debates on Aurora, Elgin & Chicago trains
with Ora M. Chappell on the relative merits of filling mate-
rials and on the comparative qualifications of the members
of our faculty. Hence lives at 525 Dundee Avenue, Elgin,
and intends to practice in Illinois.
HERBERT H. HILL
"Old Pop " Hill has not the chance of becoming president
of the United States which the majority of our class have,
for he was born in London, England, Dec. 16, 1877, and is
therefore an alien. He came to this country while still very
young and became a railroad accountant. One of his favor-
ite pastimes is to sit around and spin yarns about things
which happened on the old Minnesota division while he as-
sisted the superintendent, and also explaining how many a
railroad superintendent has been driven out of his job by
snowdrifts. " Pop " will practice in Wisconsin.
WILLIAM E. HEADLEY *n
"Cast Base Bill."
William E. Headley. who counts his friends only on elec-
tion da}', claims to be one of the most popular men in the
North Central States. " Bill " was born in Ada, Mich.. Sept.
4, 1880. He afterwards moved to Caledonia, Mich., where he
attended the public schools and the high school and began
to earn his daily bread at the chair several years before the
sinking of the Maine. "Cast Base Bill." as he is affectionate-
ly called by his friends who saw him make a cast base crown
four or five times, finally meeting with success, will practice
either in Michigan or Illinois.
CARL A. HALLE
" Chicken " was born at Rio, Wis., Feb. 3, 1882. After at-
tending the Northern Indiana Normal School he became as-
sistant secretary for the United States Steel Corporation,
South Chicago. During the junior year of his college ca-
reer. Carl was first vice president. "Chicken " intends to
hang out his shingle somewhere in Illinois.
DALE L. HORR A2A
Dale L. Horr was born April 20. 1888, at Farmer City, 111.,
and up to the time of his coming to Chicago to take up the
dental course, he made his home at that place, occupying his
time in the manner indicated in the name of the town. Along
toward the fall of 1909, Dale tired of the independent life,
which brings a man out of bed before sunrise and puts him
back there after the sun has set, even though five meals a
day are part of sucli an existence, and came to the C. C. D. S.
for " coffee and " and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
After having endured the short diet for three years and hav-
ing received the other object of his labors, he will practice

Why spell out the word when the shorter word, " he,"
will do as well? On Oct. 3, 1909, in the front row of our
large lecture room he sat smiling. His English vocabulary
consisted of the word " yes " and a knowing smile which
went with it every time, and therefore the nickname — " Billi-
ken." " Billiken " was born Dec. 16, 1886, at Tarnopol, East
Galicia, Austria. After graduating from the Tarnopol G}'m-
nasium he studied a year at K. K. Handel's Akademia, and
two years at Franz Joseph's University in Vienna, where he
took the law course. "Billiken" has held the office of class
mascot during his entire three years at the C. C. D. S. He
will practice in Chicago for two years and then go abroad.
JOSEPH M. HANNELL ASA
Joseph M. Hannell was born at Ockley, Ind., July 28. 1885.
In his very early youth. Joe occupied himself in tending to
the poultry department of a fair-sized farm, picking up the
eggs, driving the chickens to water, etc. When he had pro-
gressed farther toward the goal of manhood, a younger Han-
nell took this position and Joe advanced one step to that of
taking care of the pigs and sheep. His advance was steady
until he began following a plow, but this line of employment
was incompatible with his taste for "the easiest way," so he
entered Yalpo to prepare himself for the dental course. He
will practice at Chicago Heights.
FORREST A. HAINLINE ASA
The Chicago Dents in the spring of 1910 made Forrest
captain of the base ball team. His proficiency as a base ball
man began at Blandinsville, 111., June 16, 1890, about which
time he used to toss a yarn ball against the side of the house.
Forrest is a graduate of the high school at Seaton, in which
town he now lives.
During his senior year he served as scribe of the Delta

" Singing Hig," who, rather than graduate with the class
of 1911, played baseball every spring that he might join the
illustrious class of '12, was born March 18, 1888, at Dwight,
111. Mr. Higgins graduated from the Dwight High School
in 1908, after which he became a professional baseball player.
Roger Bresnahan picked "Hig" out of some Bush league
several years ago, and since then he has been on the Cardi-
nal roster as a pitcher. According to an article in a Portland
(Ore.) paper, in which city he has won considerable fame as
a "spit-ball artist," "Hig" was not to have returned to the
diamond this year, but instead, " some young lady is to have
a dentist husband." This, however, has not been confirmed,
as he left us before the snow was gone and we have seen
nothing that would bear out the " dentist husband " asser-
tion. He will practice in Kankakee, 111.
HARRY HALPERN AZr
Harry Halpern, one of the strongest men in the class, was
born in Bilystock, Russia, March 29, 1885. In 1903 he grad-
uated from the Bilystock Gymnasium and then, as did sev-
eral others of his friends, he " mixed " with the system of
absolute monarchy. He came to Chicago in time to join us
when we began the study of dentistry and will practice in
this city after graduation.
GEORGE J. HOBBS
June 8, 1890, in the old world in the historic country of
Greece, in a city called Cephaloria, " Peroxide " was first dis-
covered. He graduated from the high school and later came
to America to make this his home. He now lives at No.
4045 Indiana Avenue, Chicago, and will hang out his shingle
HENRY C. ILTIS
This embryonic dentist, with such a pleasing personality
stepped softly among the chairs of our infirmary only during
his senior year, where he was known as " Hank." He spent
his first two years at the dental school of the University of
Minnesota. "Hank" started his worldly career at Chasta,
Minn., Sept. 27, 1885. After getting his sheepskin, with one
shoe in his trunk, he will stride into the town of Des Moines,
Iowa, to build a practice founded upon ethics.
AARON JAFFE =**
SeptemDer 15, 1889, the empire of Russia was reimbursed
by the birth of our classmate, " Umpty." " Umpty " came to
Uncle Sam's territory some time later, stopping- at 233 E.
j80th Street, New York, his present home. Graduating from
high school he learned the drug business. Filling "shot
•gun " prescriptions was his favorite stunt, but tiring of this,
and hearing the buzz of the foot engine in the office above,
he decided to master the trade. Somebody says that Aaron's
automatic mallet sounds like a gatling gun in fire action.
Anyway, " Umpty " is going to begin his career in the
metropolis, and "jes' keep pluggin' away."
WILLIAM R. JARMAN =*$
" Rough," who is sometimes called " Switch Shanty Bill,"
started his noise Dec. 8, 1887, in Chicago, and it still contin-
ues. When he became old enough to write his name it was
put on the payroll of the Pennsylvania Railroad, where it re-
mained until after he took up the study of dentistry. In his
freshman year, Bill's prosthetic outfit contained several
things not on the list, among which were a pair of flue shears
and a small-sized sledge-hammer. " Rough " became famous
Tan. 21, 1910, when, after burning the brass base plate to
which he was soldering a wire, he was called upon for a
speech, and spoke in part as follows: " '|| — )& $ — ")' — ||]!!l
& — ." He will practice in Chicago.
ARTHUR C. JIROCH AiA
Arthur C. Jiroch, he of the lean and hungry look, or-
ganizer and president of the Rough House Club, was born
at Muskegon. Mich., April 28, 1886. After graduating from
the high school at Muskegon he was employed in several
lines of " easy picking," and finally, in 1909, he decided that
he would study dentistry. He was as meek as any freshman
on Oct. 4, 1909, but now look at him. Among the things
which are " children of his brain," are the practice of throw-
ing plaster, wherever plaster can be had, and pushing the
smaller members of the class down the stairs ahead of him.
During his senior year he was a member of the sick com-
ARTHUR B. KOHR ASA
" Sterno." the one-man band, with a unilateral protrusion of
the lower jaw, caused by caressing his violin, was picked up
by the stork at South Haven, Mich.. Oct. 5. 1883. Later he
moved to Chicago, locating at 2934 Leavitt Street, where he
still lives. He is a professional violinist, having studied nine
years with the best musicians of Chicago. This Chicago Ku-
belik was sergeant-at-arms during his junior year. He ex-
pects to work up a practice in Illinois by fiddling in some
cafe or church.
LOUIS C. KNICKERBOCKER
It is very appropriate that " Nick" should hail from Alas-
ka, where he has been successfully practicing dentistry for
the last ten years. He joined us only last fall to finish his
dental education, which was begun more than a decade ago.
He was born at Grass Lake, Mich., Oct. 4, 1872. We may
get a line on this doctor at any time by dropping him a card
at Arlington, Wash., in which State he will practice.

JOSEPH R. KELLEY *n
This is one Kelley who does not grace the payrolls of the
police force, as he long ago conceived the idea that a den-
tist could make more money than any honest policeman
would ever see. He accordingly ceased wielding the " club "
and began plying the horn mallet strenuously. " Jozack's "
preliminary work began at Wilmington. 111., Aug. 8, 18 l )0.
Some years later he finished high school, later entering St.
Ignatius College for one year, and finally in October. 1909.
Jozack's name appeared on the class rolls at the C. C. D. S.
Kelley will build up a practice in Chicago.
CONSTANTINOS D. KOKORES
" Smiling Gits."
This smiling dento philosopher started to grow beneath
the smiling skies of Greece. In the city of Kastrion. in this
historic country. May 21, 1888, "Gus " was born. With his
parents he crossed the riiackerel pond, landing in America
at an early age. Graduating from high school he sought to
put his chemical talent into practice by mixing sugars,
starches and water in such proportions as to make candy and
taffy, which he sold at his candy parlor at 1501 South Califor-
nia Avenue. Chicago, his present home. His ambition was
to become professional, and with this intent he joined the
class of 1912. He is one of the illustrious few of the execu-
HARRY E. KIMBLE ASA
" Murf " was born at Bryan, Ohio, Aug. 29, 1885. Harry is
an expert telegrapher by trade, having worked on some ten
different railroads throughout the Middle West. He has
crossed the continent from east to west and even traveled
considerably in Canada. He is a graduate of the Fayette
Normal University and for some time served as a book-
keeper. During his senior year Dr. Borland chose " Murf "
to become one of his prosectors.
RICHARD E. KING A2A
"Groucho " is the prince of the city of Keithsburg, 111. He
began to reign April 28, 1891. He ruled his way into and
through the high school and later took advantage of his
friends by selling them lumber and groceries. Not content
with being the " genial clerk at the corner grocery," he jour-
neyed to Chicago and began the toilsome career of a tooth
carpenter. "Groucho " says he is going to Oklahoma and
open up a shop. Needless to say he will be looking "down
in the mouth " the rest of his life.
JOSEPH KUYNDERS A2A
This pugilist fan is a real congenial pug of Deutschland,
entering the arena of life Aug. 8. 1888, at Groningen, Hol-
land. After graduating from a high school and a commercial
college " Hack " became shrewd enough to sell Japanese and
Chinese articles to his friends, later crossing into the new
world to study dentistry.. He is " already " going back to
Holland, for he and Uncle Sam do not agree as to whether
Gotch or Hackenschmidt is the better man.
MICHAEL H. KYRIAK
This interesting and energetic subject is a product of the
old world, having as his birthplace the city of Galatz, in Rou-
mania. " Mike " early evinced a desire to know, and this de-
sire led him into the study of the classical French and Latin.
Later he became a soldier of the Grecian Empire and in this
capacity served with honor and distinction. Finally as a
fitting climax to all that has gone before he entered Valpo,
ultimately ending up at the Chicago College of Dental Sur-
gery. " Mike " is now able to insert foil with the precision
of a veteran and ere long many decrepit teeth will feel the
stroke of his trusty chisel. During his senior year he was
second class vice president.

CLINTON F. KEELER
Clinton F. Keeler was born Aug. 26, 1889, at Milwaukee,
Wis., spending boyhood days there, after which his parents
moved to Austin, where they now reside. He graduated
from the Austin High School in 1908 and began his business
career as a traveling salesman. Seven or eight months of
this " knight of the grip " life sufficed for "Clint," and in the
spring of 1909 he matriculated with the class of 1911. Ow-
ing to the shortage of several months in attendance he was
held over to graduate with the class of '12. He will locate
at Austin, 111., where he resides at No. 4630 Park Avenue.
JOHN S. LAMERIS, M. D.
This big good-natured Dutchman, with the handle of M.
D., which he got at Utrecht, was born at Yenlo. Holland.
Dec. 2S, 1877. At Utrecht, John spent one year in a dental
college, coming to America to get the last year. After lie
had earned his M. D. degree he acted as army surgeon. At
the end of this year he will return with his wife to his home
at The Hague, Batjanstraat 20.
LAWRENCE J. LUNDEEN ASA
" Big Swede."
" Big Swede,'' the tonsorial artist, started to grow at Cad-
illac, Mich., May 20, 1884. He learned to husk corn, pitch
hay and follow the plow, all of which reflected upon his su-
periority as sergeant-at-arms during the junior year. He
pursued the scientific course for some time at Valparaiso,
later winding up at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery.
He expects to locate in Michigan to practice the black art
upon the aborigines located there.
JAMES M. LIENLOKKEN E**
" Silent Jim."
It would be very honorable to " Honest Abe " Lincoln if
his birth had occurred two days earlier in February, thereby
falling upon the same date as our " Silent Jim's." Since 1887
the populace of the city of La Crosse, Wis., has turned out
on Feb. 10 in celebration of his birthday, we are told. After
attending the La Crosse High School, Jim became a telegra-
pher, and while thus employed by the Associated Press, the
United Press Association and other news-gathering con-
cerns, he traveled from ocean to ocean and from Duluth to
the gulf. He maintained his business relations with Wil-
liam Randolph Hearst throughout his three years at college.
During his junior and senior years he was class treasurer and
is a member of the Dentos Board. He will practice some-
where in the North Central States.
GEORGE E. LINDMARK &2A
" Little Swede."
After staying in the Division High School long enough to
receive a diploma "Little Swede" spent three years at the
Northwestern University, after which time his mechanical
and artful mind was centered on becoming a dentist. Ac-
cordingly he entered the Chicago College, and at once was
called " Little Swede " to designate him from others of his
" Little Swede " was born in Chicago June 26. 1889. Dur-
ing his senior year as a dental student he was a member of
the executive committee. " The hair is a lamp unto my feet."
FRED J. LA BELLE H**
" Plaster Bowl."
This good-natured piece of material has been smiling since
(let. '>. 1885. Crookston, Minn., has the honor of being the
city in which he was born. For seven years Fred pursued the
labors of a commercial traveler, his work landing him into
almost every State in the Union. " Plaster Bowl " is the
man who wrote the minutes of all the doings during our
junior year. Dr. Borland's prosector force was reinforced
by him during his senior year.
ROY C. LOUDIN ASA
^ "Grandma " was born at Rock Cave, W. Va., July 4, 1880.
Graduating from the Wheeling Business College, he taught
school for a time, and later " dabbled in politics." Evidently
he made a poor impression, for he shortly after began the
study of dentistry armed with a plaster bowl and horn mal-
let. "Grandma " was class historian during the freshman
year and our president through the senior term; also one of
the head prosectors under Prof. Borland. Roy will locate at
Moundsville, W. Ya., where he expects to teach the public
the necessity of large fees ih dental operations.
DAVID N. LEWIS
Eldorado. 111., has the honor of being the birthplace of
" Sister " Lewis. Sept. 27. 1882, the date of his birth, should
be a holiday for Eldorado people. After growing to man-
hood this ambitious lad became a tonsorial artist, and al-
though he never knew it he was practicing "art to hide art."
Later he studied for three years at Valparaiso, Ind., pursuing
the scientific course. During the Filipino insurrection he
joined hands with Uncle Sam, went to the islands, but failed
to get shot. He may always be reached at Estill Springs,
Tenn. Mr. Lewis intends to practice in Illinois.
ALBERT R. MANOCK A5A
On Oct. 11, 1886. at Farmer City. III. "Tommy" Manock
caught his first glimpse of a threshing machine, for Farmer
City, as the name implies, was not a city of automobiles,
aeroplanes and telephones in those days. After three years
of high school work his traveling "bug" became active and
he drifted southward. At Memphis, Tenn.. he became assist-
ant secretary of the Retail Merchantile Association, and la-
ter became assistant State manager of the International Cor-
respondence School, for the State of Mississippi. Now he
has risen to the dignity of a real " down town dentist," but
expects to go West to hang out his shingle.
paul l. Mcdonald h*$
" Pewee's " home since Jan. 16, 1891, has been at 122S
Main Street. Marinette, Wis., but after graduation Los An-
geles, Cal., will be the home of this illustrous songster. With
one book under his arm and two " ponies " in his pockets
" Pewee " trudged to school long enough to finish the high-
school course. " Pewee " thinks the northern climate too
severe for his constitution, and then, too, the water is bad.
He intends to specialize in orthodontia, practicing upon the
pathological dentures of California rodents.
JOHN B. McCAULEY
Every time we say this word we remember the laugh so
characteristic of this falsetto voice which became a scream-
ing success at Gratiot, Wis., Nov. 4, 1885. His success ex-
tends through his proprietorship in a general store and as a
salesman in many more. Undoubtedly " Mac " will continue
to act as a salesman, but it now will be crowns and bridges.
He expects to practice in northern Wisconsin.
ALBERT M. MATSUNA
This Yankee of the East was born at Gifu, Japan, Jan. S,
1886. After graduating from a Japanese high school he be-
gan the study of medicine, but not desirous of becoming an
M. D„ he chose dentistry. " Mat " worked as a reporter on
a Japanese paper in San Francisco during the summers of
1910 and 1911. He will return to Japan and will practice at

james h. Mcdonald asa
Mickie's birthplace is in Missouri, where he was born Feb.
9, 1881. Since that time he has shown instead of being shown.
With such a varied experience as working on the railroad,
setting type, pushing goods across the counter and lassoing
cattle on the western plains " Mickie " well adapted himself
to dentistry. Besides the above extended talent he has some
valuable writing in this book. His home is in Jamestown.
N. D., where he intends to practice ethical dentistry.
GEORGE A. McCONNACHIE ASA
George has a hard name that no two classmates can utter
alike, so he is just plain "Handsome," although the boys
have called him other names. He comes from Belleville,
X. D.. where he was born Sept. 28. 1890. George likes the
land of his birth, and so will return and set up a practice in
that section. We suspect that he has his eye on a few
" ducats " out there and feeling that the public now owes him
a living he is going out to collect. George has a diploma
in his possession saying that he is a graduate of the Belle-
ville High School.
HARRY W. MATTHEWS H*$
" Hairbreadth Harry," the story of the exciting adventures
of whom, with Beautiful Belinda, the boiler-maker, is pub-
lished in the Sunday Comics, began his eventful career at
Aurora, 111., Nov. 4, 1890. He graduated from the East Au-
rora High School in his early youth and in 1909 began riding
back and forth between Chicago and Aurora on the electric
road, dropping in at the C. C. D. S. between trips long enough
to make a plate, solder a Richmond or hear a lecture. He has
continued these trips for three long years and now considers
himself sufficiently familiar with dental subjects to begin the
practice of dentistry at Aurora, where he resides at 448 Co-
DAVID C. NEYMARK AZT
" Buck " has been gathering information since the mem-
orable day of May 25, 1883, when he made his appearance
at Ottumwa, Iowa. After absorbing the equivalent of a high
school education he was taken into the firm of Marshall
Field & Company, in Chicago, where he continued to act as
salesman until the fall of 1909, when he, with a "Gray's
Anatomy" under his arm, first sat in the very front row of
our lecture room. David C. is a member of the executive
committee. He resides at 1819 South Sawyer Avenue, Chi-
cago. He will practice in Chicago.
WILLIAM D. O'DAY
< If all the " Hanks " in our class, this is the real one. If
this Badger Bard (for "Hank" is some bard) practices den-
tistry as well as he can write poetry, we shall hear from him
later at International clinics. This high school and business
college graduate, this school teacher and poet, was born at
Wilton, Wis., July 9. 1885. " Hank " has some valuable poet-
ry elsewhere in this book. He will practice in the State
made famous by " Bob " La Follette.
EDMUND S. OLSEN =*<!>
Jan. 1, 1889, was indeed a Happy Xew Year's Day in the
Olsen home at Webster, S. D.. for on that day little Eddie,
for whom all the 1910-11 admiration of "Daddy" Watt was
in store, came into being. "Ole " graduated from the Spring
Valley (Wis.) High School in 1906. He took his freshman
year at the University of Minnesota dental school and joined
us at the beginning of his junior year. He made friends im-
mediately of all the members of our class, and also Dr. Watt,
who devoted his hour one Monday night to telling us how
gracefully "Ole " had taken the " turn-down " of his No. 10.
"Ole " expects to practice either at Spooner, Wis., or in
Minneapolis, where he resides at No. 2123 James Avenue,

THOMAS R. PEARCE A2A
Sept. 2, 1882, is the recorded date of the birth of " Jerry,"
his birthplace being at Harrisburg, 111., where he finished the
course of study outlined by the township board in its high
school. Later he became a professional baseball catcher, do-
ing dental work during the winter months. During his jun-
ior and senior years he assisted Dr. V. W. Watt in the pros-
Abraham is a pharmacy man, having tilled prescriptions
for ten years at Utrecht. He was born at Roodkerk, Friesh-
land, Holland, Nov. 8, 1872. He is a graduate of the dental
school at Utrecht, and is taking a post-graduate course at
'the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. This true-enough
dentist is also a graduate of the University of Groningen,
Holland. His home is in Utrecht, F. C. Dordes Street, 31,
GEORGE A. RANDOLPH *0
This little fellow began prowling about May 5, 1888, at
Sioux Falls, S. D., and even in Chicago he manifests his na-
tivity nickname by staying out at night. During his junior
and senior years he was assistant to Dr. Brophy. He occu-
pied the office of sergeant-at-arms in the freshman year. He
studied in a law office for some time at Sioux Falls, where he
hopes to locate, buy an X-Ray machine and practice psycho-
logic oral surgery.
JOSIAS A. RACETTE
" Spaghet," the peaceful, black-haired dentist-to-be, is a
bookkeeper by past profession, having worked in that capac-
ity on several passenger boats on the Great Lakes. He hails
from Muskegon, Mich., where he was born Sept. 7. 1889, and
in memory of some saint of grandparent was characterized
from the remainder of the family register by " Josias." Mr.
Racette, though he has held no class office in any of his
years at college, has performed a service appreciated by the
students from France, in acting as their interpreter. He will
practice in Michigan.
JOHN H. RICHARDSON AiA
John arrived at Lincoln, 111., Feb. 29, 1888. After a few
years John moved with his folks to Snyder, Tex., where he
is a graduate of the Snyder High School. Anyone wishing
to communicate with " Dreams " may always reach him at
ALFRED SORENSON *n
Alfred Sorenson began to " savvy the dope " Aug. 14, 1883.
at North Platte, Neb. He became an expert designer of ex-
perimental machinery and in that capacity he was employed
by several large Western railroads. Al is a supporter of
Dr. Watt in his doctrine of "Art to Hide Art," using cement
to hide some of the art of his bridgework, especially on band-
ed cuspid abutments. It was through his ingenuity that Dr.
Goslee made known to us a new variety of shell crowns,
called the " tin can " crown, which, in popularity, bids fair to
outshadow the new Goslee interchangeable. Mr. Sorenson
intends to practice in Chicago.

CLARENCE I. SOPER A5A
Clarence I. Soper, better known as "Soap," lathered up at
Watertown, S. D.. May 11, 1888, and later moved to Dixon.
111., where his parents now reside. Soap earned considerable
fame on the gridiron in a football game at Minonk. 111.,
where he is said to have saved the day for the North Dixon
Highs. He is one of the latest additions to the class' con-
tingent of Benedicts and expects to build his cabin and hang
out his shingle in South Dakota or Montana.
MARTIN R. STCEFFHAAS *n
Martin R. Stceffhaas celebrated his twenty-second birth-
day by getting the flowers ready and his gown brushed up
for his graduation. He was born in Chicago, May 30. 1890.
Marty joined the Anti-Appendix club shortly before last
Christmas and seems to enjoy the privileges which go with
that membership. And these privileges are not to be scoffed
at, for not every man can obey the dictates of his appetite
without fear of Mr. Vermiform's disapproval, as Marty now
can. His early aspirations led him drugstoreward, but the
odor of eugenol, phenol and beechwood creosote shunted
him off onto the dental track. He expects to practice in Chi-
SAMUEL A. SUCHAROFF AZr
Samuel A. Sucharoff was born in Charson, Russia, Nov.
22, 1886. He attended the Charson Gymnasium until he and
Maxim Gorky began raising rough house on the system of
government in Russia, when the Czar's agents paid him a
visit. However, Samuel was not at home and hasn't been
home since, for he packed his red handkerchief and a pair of
socks in his little grip and shook the dust of the land of Pet-
er the Great from his cloth moccasins. He went to Paris,
where he studied for a short time at Sourbonne University.
He then came to America and to Chicago. Mr. Sucharoff
expects to practice in Illinois unless Uncle Sam is successful
in his passport controversy with the Czar in which event he
will return to Russia.
CLARENCE A. SEARL =**
Theodore Roosevelt gained a staunch supporter in his
campaign for a revision of our spelling, when on Dec. 30,
1888, Clarence A. Searl was born at Owatonna, Minn. Clar-
ence was several years ahead of the times in his spelling
when he graduated from Pillsbury Academy, in 1908, for at
that time the n.ew S3 r stem was not in general use, though
used by Clarence. In his junior and senior years he was as-
sistant to Dr. Brophy in the oral surgery clinic and also
held an office in Lambda Chapter, Xi Psi Phi Fraternity. He
will join his father in his practice at Owatonna, Minn.
WALTER J. SAUBERT *n
Kaukauna, Wis., bears the distinction of being the birth-
place of Walter J. Saubert, who, on Oct. 16, 1886, began mak-
ing his wants known through the sign and other languages.
Since then he has mastered the English language and an-
other, the first letter of the name of which is " p." Dutch
graduated from the Kaukauna High School in 1903 ajid it
was there he gained his knowledge of the English language
but it was not until his freshman year at the C. C. D. S. in
the prosthetic laboratory, when No. 1 came out of the vulcan-
izer with considerable porosity, that he made known his
knowledge of the last named mode of expression. He in-
tends to practice in Chicago.
WILBERT J. SCRUTON ASA
From the eighteenth paragraph of the Thanksgiving proc-
lamation issued by the governor of New York in 1880 enum-
erating the things for which the people of his commonwealth
should be truly thankful we have taken the following few
words, the prophetic nature of which has partly been ful-
"And, for the birth at Madrid, on the 11th instant, of Wil-
bert James Scruton, who, I believe, will some day bring the
light of learning to the savage Igorrote, who will lead his
class at college through the trials of its formative period, give
to the world the first word from that class in its valedictory
and afterward become a power in some professional circle
and a credit and honor to our commonwealth let us send up
r ur thanks * * * ."
This statement compared with facts collected, identifies
the person referred to as our own W. J. Scruton, for, after
his graduation in 1896 from the Madrid High School and in
1901 from the Potsdam State Normal, he gave the little
Filipinos their first taste of the English language and on
coming to us became our first president. At our graduation
he is our valedictorian and the rest of the prophetic refer-
ence in the governor's proclamation is well on the way to-
ward fulfillment. Mr. Scruton was grand master of Beta
Chapter, Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity.

WARREN H. SMELTZER *n
At Elkhart, Ind., in the year of 1885, Christmas came sev-
en days ahead of schedule, and among the things from San-
ta's pack left at the Smeltzer home was Warren H. When
he was four years old, his uncle presented him with a Noah's
ark and its inhabitants carved in wood. One month later
little Warren, who had tired of his toy, hurled the ark and
contents into a blazing furnace and from that time his father
knew he would some day be a great business man. When he
began to study dentistry in 1909 he was conducting a very-
popular refreshment parlor on California Avenue and he
continued in the management of its affairs until the place was
destroyed by fire. He was second vice president of the jun-
ior class and has been active in things Psi Omegan. He will
practice in Chicago.
ALBERT C. SPICKERMAN A2A
Albert C. Spickerman, who began the study of dentistry
under the watchful eye and sheltering wing of our class
president, was born at Sandwich, 111., Oct. 9," 1888, and grad-
uated from the Sandwich High School in 1908. His first
year at the C. C. D. S., with its elevating environment, shaped
the matrix for his more perfect calcification as a dentist,
though during the latter part of his college career he has as-
sociated with " men of the meaner sort " — juniors. " Spick "
intends to practice in Illinois.
GEORGE R. SINCLAIR A5A
"Sin " began barking at New Lisbon, Wis., Sept. 17. 1888.
He graduated from the New Lisbon High School in 1906
and then attended Beloit College, but finally decided to put
forth his energies as a dentist. "Sin " expects to practice in
EDWARD H. SPRINGBORN
What's in a name? As an argument to prove that there is
nothing, we submit the name of Edward H. Springborn. Ac-
cording to the name we would assume that Eddie was a
spi ing baby — born in the spring. However when we collect-
ed the data about his life, which we found to have been a
very quiet one, spent for the most part at his birthplace, a
small town in Dane County, Wis., called Westfield, we were
surprised to learn that he was born in September — Sept. 6,
1886. He attended the high school at this little place and
afterward sold plows and harrows to the farmers of the com-
munity. Now he is going to sell dental services! He expects
to practice in Wisconsin.
CORNELIS E. STARK
" Zahu Technicher."
Cornells E. Stark was born June 8, 1874, in Leiden, Hol-
land. In his youth he devoted his time to carving wooden
shoes and patching the dikes, both of which are very com-
mon in his country. His skill in the art of shoe carving was
noticed by an aged dentist in Rotterdam, who told him of a
shorter road to wealth in the application of his skill to plas-
ter cusps. He then prepared himself for the study of den-
tistry at the Amsterdam Gymnasium, the Technicher Hoch
Schule at Aachen, Germany, and at Finsbury College, Lon-
don. Mr. Stark did not receive the degree of " Zahn Tech-
nicher " at the Technicher Hoch Schule, but nevertheless he
has extracted a tooth or two on the Isle of Java, where he
made his home for several years. He intends to return to
Java and locate in the city of Semarang.
THEODORE O. SOELBERG
" Saint Olaf."
Theodore O. Soelberg was born June 27, 1887, in New
London, Minn., and several years later his parents moved to
Granite Falls, where he attended the public schools and the
high school. He spent several years in the mail service, dur-
ing which time he invested in several large farms and bought
an interest in a bank. Then he decided that the mail service
was not for him and that the remainder of his life should be
devoted either to the saving of lost souls or of broken-down
teeth. After taking his freshman year here and then study-
ing several months in a Lutheran seminary he chose the teeth.
He intends to practice wherever he can find a good bunch
of Christian Norwegians.

H. RAYMOND STEERE *0
H. Raymond Steere was born on the plains of western Ne-
braska on Jan. 8, 1885. Immediately after his birth several
bands of Indians, who had heard of the arrival of the little
white child, made pilgrimages to the lonely cabin to feast
their eyes on the new morsel of Caucasian humanity. They
went through the ceremony of the peace pipe with the proud
papa and at their friendly meetings they attempted to de-
scribe their journeys. Their only near-intelligible utterance
was the word "Sandy" which they pronounced " Santee."
Several months later H. Raymond spoke his first word,
which, according to the baby-book kept by his mother, was
" Santee," and since then the little village which now marks
his birthplace has been called by that name. Determined to
become a famous Indian fighter, he entered the Northwest-
ern Military Academy at Highland Park, but since the exo-
dus of the Indian he has chosen the bacteria of dental caries
as his foes and will wage his warfare on the battlefields of
Chicago. He served as grand master of the Psi Omega Fra-
ternity, Gamma Chapter.
HARRY P. SHEPARD A2A
Our annual acquisition from the Buffalo Dental College
for the class of 1912 was Harry P. Shepard, who was born
at Batavia, N. Y., Jan. 23, 1888. "Shep,<' who claims to have
driven mules before the dentistry center of his cerebrum was
stimulated, hied himself to Buffalo, N. Y., when this stimula-
tion occurred, where he began the study of this profession.
After two years at Buffalo he decided that a dental educa-
tion without a glimpse of the inside of a real good college
was worth nothing, and came to us. He will locate in New
WILLIAM S. SEED, B. D. S.
William S. Seed sprouted April 17, 1887, at Christchurch,
New Zealand. He attended the Boys' High School at
Christchurch and Otago University at Dunedin, N. Z. He
received the degree of Bachelor of Dental Surgery at New
Zealand University in 1911 and then came to Chicago to add
a D. D. S. to the string. He will return to Christchurch,
where he resides at No. 300 Hereford Street.
EARL L. TURTON A2A
When the poet sang " What is so rare as a day in June? "
he must have referred to the fourteenth in the year 1888, the
very June day our same Earl was born.
After finishing high school at Austin, Minn., in his native
city, " Ignatz " worked for a number of years as salesman,
but dissatisfied with remunerations, he sought a dental
school, hoping later to extract the " silver rollers " from the
honest people of Montana.
During the freshman year by politically working his fast-
made friends he was elected sergeant-at-arms, and using the
same political machine in the senior year he turned the crank
so the needle on the dial made him chairman of the execu-
CLIFFORD L. THROOP =**
'■ Old Schmell."
Nature gave us Clifford L. Throop at Lakeview, Mich., on
the fourth of May, 1887, and, then, seeing how liberal she
had been, recalled a small part of him, which makes it possi-
ble for us to say of Old Schmell that " even a single hair, out
of place, casts its shadow." He grew up in a dental en-
vironment at Muncie, Ind., where his father enjoys an exten-
sive practice. He took up the study of dentistry at the In-
diana Dental College and came to us at the beginning of his
junior year and has fitted very well in our class — just like a
perfectly cast inlay in a Derfectly prepared cavity — as though
he had always been a part of it. Mr. Throop prepared for his
dental course at the Muncie High School, Eastern Indiana
Normal College and at Yalpo. He intends to join his father
in bis practice at Muncie.
THOMAS J. TURNEY
Thomas J. Turney, he of the artistic temperament and long-
hair, was born at Galesburg, 111., Feb. 5, 1885. He graduated
from the Galesburg High in 1906 and afterward took up mu-
sic at Knox College, Galesburg. Mr. Turney is a musician of
no mean ability, having rendered selections at several gath-
erings of artists in this city. He has not decided as to wheth-
er he will begin the practice of dentistry immediately upon
graduation or devote his entire time toward the mastering
of his favorite instrument, the cello. If lie decides upon pur-
suing the former course lie has designs on some small town

CARL G. VEST, D. M. D.
Carl G. Vest, he of anatomical occlusion fame, was born
April 8, 1887, at Basel, Switzerland. He received the degree
of Doctor of Dental Medicine at the State University of
Basel and acted as assistant in the Basel state dental sur-
gery clinic in 1910. He brought with him from Switzerland
an articulator designed by his former instructor in prosthetic
dentistry, Dr. Gyzi, and with it the cheering news that in a
few years the price of this articulator would be within the
reach of all dentists who have $5,000 practices. He will prac-
tice in Basel.
HERBERT W. WRIGHT
Herbert W. Wright claims the distinction of having been
born nearer the Arctic circle than any other member of the
class. Russell, Manitoba, which we are unable to locate on
any map, is his birthplace, and Oct. 26, 1891, is the date of
•his birth. He graduated from the high school at this far-
away place in 1907 and took his freshman year at the Royal
College of Dental Surgeons at Toronto. His little smile and
pleasant word, which he has for everyone at all times, have
made him a very welcome addition to our class. His home is
at 825 Twelfth Avenue, West, Calgary, Alberta. He will
practice in Alberta.
Takebumi Watanabe was born Nov. 5, 1881, at Tokio, Ja-
pan. On account of the writer being unable to speak Japa-
nese with any degree of fluency, the facts concerning his life
were difficult of collection. However, we do know that he
graduated from the Tokio Dental College in 1901, and that
his home is at Shimosuwa, Shinano, Japan. He will remain
in this country two or three years before returning to the
land of the Mikado.
EDWARD J. WITHERSTINE =**
At a certain intersection of railroad tracks over in north-
western Illinois, which on railroad maps is called Davis Junc-
tion, Edward J. Witherstine first became acquainted with the
smoke nuisance on Aug. 4, 1890. " Little Ted " was not sat-
isfied in a place which offered no recreation other than hear-
ing trains whistle and seeing them pass swiftly by, so he in-
duced his " governor " to pack up and move to Rockford,
where he graduated from the high school in 1909. When he
came to Chicago he identified himself with the McCauley-
Springborn ring, and with them, during his freshman and
junior years, he boned on the sphenoid and the branches of
the external carotid to a fare-thee-well. In his senior year,
however, he assisted his uncle in his dental office, holding up
the sanitation end. He expects to become more intimately
associated with his uncle, Dr. Blair, of Chicago, after grad-
" Homcstakc Bob."
The reflection of light on nuggets of gold reached the vis-
ual center of Robert Wood's cerebrum for the first time
Feb. 5, 1889, at Smithville, S. D. Say what you may of the
productiveness of the Black Hills, they have given to the
world at least two things which have aided in bringing the
profession of dentistry to the high position it now occupies —
Bob Wood and gold. Digging gold in the Black Hills awak-
ened in Bob the idea of becoming a dentist for in those days
Bob thought that pounding gold foil into cavities would be
much easier on his back than knocking it out of the terra
firma with a pickax and shovel but now he recalls, while
pushing the little pellets into place, what a pleasure it was
to wield the pick. " Homestake " was president of our jun-
ior class, and while serving in that capacity he succeeded in
having legislation enacted prohibiting the throwing of soft
plaster in the laboratories and rough-housing in the lecture
room. He expects to practice in Montana.
GEORGE E. WILCOX =**
June 23 is a red letter day in the village of Minonk, 111,,
for on that day, in the year of 1889, George E. Wilcox started
on his joy ride of life. And it has been a joy ride. It car-
ried him through high school at Minonk, and almost half
way through the University of Illinois, where the only blow-
out of the journey occurred. At the University of Illinois
he took up that part of the science course which embraces
cigarettes, chewing tobacco and work in the foundry, and
acquitted himself nobly in the first two studies. Then he
landed at the C. C. D. S. He has been active in the fraternal
world since coming here, for in the spring of 1911. Lambda
Chapter, Xi Psi Phi, elected him treasurer and his conduct
of that office has been an inspiration to the treasurers of
other things. Mr. Wilcox will either practice in Illinois or
join his uncle, who has an extensive practice in Calcutta,

ROSCO T. WILLEY •
Rosco T. Willey, another of our contingent of married
men, and who enjoys the distinction of being called " papa,"
was born May 22, 1882, at Bountiful, Utah. When Rosco be-
came old enough to know of things negative and positive he
thought he would follow in the footsteps of Thomas Edison,
so he started to work as an electrician and continued in this
line until he came to the C. C. D. S. in 1909. He held the of-
fice of secretary of the senior class. Mr. Willey expects to
locate in Utah.
HERBERT L. WEBSTER
Herbert L. Webster was born in Butler, Ind., Oct. 10,
1885. He attended the public schools at Butler and graduat-
ed from the Butler High School in 1903, after which, as all
Hoosiers do, he wrote poetry and taught school for several
years. Mr. Webster's works in poetry are not found in our
library, though he himself was frequently among those pres-
ent when the patient bench was well inhabited. He expects
to locate in Indiana.
RAY H. WOOSTER
The oldest inhabitant of Smithville, N. Y., often remarks
that the folks upstate have never suffered as much from the
cold, nor has there been so heavy a snowfall as there was on
Jan. 31, 1886. It was a cold day when Ray H. Wooster was
ushered into this world, and incidentally we might add that
it was another cold day (Jan. 4, 1912) when he took Miss
Grace Hamilton, of Oxford, N. Y., to share with him the joys
of college life. The old farm was g;ood enough for Ray until
the desire to mend disabled masticatory apparatuses over-
came him, when he went to Oxford, N. Y., where he studied
at an academy, after which he went to Valpo and from there
came to the C. C. D. S. In his capacity as sergeant-at-arms
of the senior class, he distributed the official slips in Dr. Bor-
land's physical diagnosis classes.
ICauglmtg Oka or "(Ulie Hubrtrafrfc Ifcettg? "
When it conies to orthodontia and the straightening of teeth
There is no one quite so expert, to the best of my belief,
As the men who teach that subject and the contouring of the face,
Their names are Dr. Grismore and Professor Calvin Case.
The faults and defects in our crown and bridge-work.
Caused not by our trying our work to shirk,
Are scorned and turned down with a disdainful glance
That causes the seniors to quake in their pants.
But when we've remodeled and made it the way
That forces them to give us a great big O. K.,
We feel like patting them all on the back,
Patting whom, did 1 say ? Why, Drs. Spera and Mac.
And when we show up fillings to Dr. Puterbaugh,
He is always sure to pass on them if they haven't any flaw.
But if around the margins his explorer will drop in.
He shakes his head, we take the hint and do it o'er again.
We can all adjust the rubber dam
And collect the " silver rollers,"
But let Dr. Johnson put in the foil
( )n the distal of third molars.
When Wednesday afternoon rolls round
Dr. Buckley's on the job;
You may see him pace the infirmary floor
Closely followed by a mob
Of anxious rough-necked seniors,
Who wish to have him look
At some case they have in a dental chair
So he'll O. K. them on his book.
These cases vary very much ;
What they are I will not say ;
But they all have doilies pinned on their friends.
For that is doily day.
Anatomical occlusion and the compensating curve.
Are two things that seem very hard for seniors to observe ;
But when in need for expert help, we start out on the trot.
In search of Dr. Schaffer or our friend Doc Vernon Watt.
Every Monday and Friday morning.
Dr. Borland is in our pit ;
He's the tutor of many students
And he always makes a *' hit."
He can talk on any subject —
But few with him can cope ;
He has burned a lot of "midnight oil,"
That's why he knows the dope.
Dr. Logan knows his subject.
Also knows just how to teach it ;
Dr. Roach can make such a high priced plate.
That the common purse won't reach it.
At making bridges, plates and crowns
Dr. Goslee can't be beat;
Die men are few, who in this line
With him try to compete.
We students know there's not much use
So we don't feel like tryin';
As an orator he holds next place
To William Jennings Bryan.
When we get that hungry feeling
And the pangs of hunger show
Then we think of Chink's Chop Suey
And our friend, Doc J. X. Roe.
Sucharoff, Halpern and Levit
Make a trio well worth admirin' ;
They'd be more in place if turned black in the face
From hollerin' r-a-g-s and old iron.
A rough-necked student named Jarmiu,
Who really should have been farmin',
Persevered at the chair till his work is quite fair,
But still his loud voice is alannin'.
Here's to Eddie Fierston
A freak of this wonderful age ;
He's foolish to study dentistry
When he ought to be on the stage.
A tough guy named Wooster from old York State,
Went home for vacation but came back quite late ;
) He left with a suit case hanging at his side,
Which he exchanged while gone for a charming young bride.
W'e all welcomed him back with a hearty hand-shake ;
No one passed him up, — for courtesy's sake :
He bought his bride diamonds that sparkled like stars.
And then "came across" with a box of cigars.
McDonald, I think, comes from North Dakota.
A State just west of Minnesota;
When it comes to hot air. J. H. is right there.
He isn't a bit like Floto.
As to Scruton, Loudin, and Gerring,
Their work is beyond reproach :
Rut they sometimes fill a root canal
With a broken-off barbed broach.
Manock and Wood make a worth} pair ;
Their work looks to be just dandy;
When it comes to serving coffee and rolls.
They are also very handy.
Sorenson and La Belle do love to tell
Of the great things they do and have done ;
They may be wise, to so advertise.
Rut their troubles are sure to come.
Good natured Dale Horr. from Farmer's City,
Is studying dentistry, but that's a pity ;
He could make more money with gloves in the ring.
Jack Johnson would fall from his vicious right swing.
Dreamland is a lovely place,
Inhabited by " Chicken ;"
To this McCauley will agree,
For I guess he knows good pickin'.
c c d s A — -&*?
Brandenberg, for short we call " Brandy,"
At Oakley. Hall he sure is a dandy;
Every Saturday night, if my guess is quite right.
You will find him there, dancing with Mandy.
All agree that Lundeen as a student is bright ;
He works all day long and some times at night ;
But he's bothered with bunions and corns on his feet.
Caused, 1 think, from parading on Madison Street.
Randolph for short we call " Rudie ;"
As a surgeon he is of high rank :
He can cure all antrum cases,
On " hair lip" he sure is a crank.
Assisted by Dr. Brophy,
Cleft palates by him have been cured.
As a doctor of oral surgery
He certainly is well matured.
Behind the lunch counter at the College Cafe,
Slinging the " hash" in a " lipshod " way,
Mav be found our friend Albright every morning and night.
Serving coffee and rolls, which is Students' Delight.
He sticks to this job like the bark on a tree,
Because by so doing, he gets his "chuck" free.
And now the anxious days have come.
The most anxious of the year ;
With the possible exception,
For Bill Headley and Ray Steere,
'We like to get as many points
As fast as e'er we can.
But they are "out" in temporary stopping
Sterilization and rubber-dam.
About the rest of our class, we won't say much.
The remainder comprises Trish, French, Jews, and Dutch :
They all hope, however, to be dentists some day.
So get busy, you mutts, lest vou fall In- the way.

The Student: His Status
In taking up the discussion of this subject it is with the intention to carry
it only so far as it is applicable to dental students. I cannot go into details,
the space allowed being far too small to allow any specializing.
Like in all professions, the opportunities which are placed before students
are constantly changing, and the status must necessarily be changed to conform
to the requirements.
It is only a few years since anyone who could pass a satisfactory test in
practical or technical dentistry would be allowed to " hang out his shingle" and
invite people to his office and allow him to operate, when he did not know the
scientific reason for such operation. The people (and they have the right) are
demanding "whys" for everything done by the dentist today. The days of the
itinerant dentist are numbered because the people have learned that this class
of professional men are not as satisfactory as the man they know and who re-
sides with them.
Nearly all State Boards of Dental Examiners require that the applicants
for license to practice in their respective States shall possess certificates of gradu-
ation, diplomas from some reputable dental college, before they will be permitted
to take an examination. Many are demanding that applicants also possess a
high school diploma, or its equivalent in credits. In fact, so many are demand-
ing it that the Association of Dental Colleges has placed that as a requirement
for entrance to its course of study.
The demand from progressive dentists that students should be kept abreast
of the times and should be taught the results of scientific investigation ; the
demand for a better class of work and an understanding by the dental surgeon
of why he does this or that ; these and many more have placed dentistry on an
unquestionable scientific base, from which it demands, and is receiving, recogni-
tion. To meet all these demands, the requirements have been materially changed
within the past decade. The characteristics of the student have not changed much.
His average age is probably lower than in former years. The great majority
take their school work to be their profession, and in fact it is. He goes about it
in a professional way. He does not have the interest in sports that students in
other professions do. He is not inclined to be rough, yet, when he meets his
favorite professor, he makes him feel that he appreciates his work. Such acts
as hazing, passing up, and all forms of rowdyism do not belong on his calendar
of amusements. In fact, he soon learns, after entering school, that his work will
afford him all he can do if he does it well. Morally, mentally and socially he is
the equal of any student in any profession of today.
Never in the history of dentistry have colleges been called upon to put
forth as much effort in training and instruction. They are crowding every pos-
sible subject they can into a three-year course of study. The student in the
modern dental college has everything put to his hand for a general knowledge of
the whole mechanism, both normal and abnormal, microscopically as well as mac-
roscopically. He is given a thorough course in therapeutics, with special emphasis
placed upon the rational treatment of all diseased conditions which come under
his province. He is given a thorough and practical course in operative and pros-
thetic technique. He now has special work in prophylaxis so he may be able to
meet the demands for that work which now is so popular with those who are
pushing the great oral hygiene movement and who are seeing so many great
benefits to humanity as a result of their labors. The introduction of the casting
method for restoring lost tooth structure has practically revolutionized operations
in dentistry. The student has a great advantage in being taught the indications
of the inlay, thereby giving him an invaluable asset when he leaves college to
practice his profession where he meets keen competition. In addition to all of
the above, he is given a thorough course in all of the specific disorders, covering
their cause, course and treatment.
Why are all these advantages offered ? Why were they not offered twenty,
or even ten years ago ? The answer is plain. The people are demanding it ;
the profession is demanding it ; the student demands it in order that he may
go forth to serve the public and exalt his profession. To do it in its highest
efficiency he must be equipped with all modern appliances and with a scientific
knowledge of the subject.
As a result of a practical application to the work offered to the dental
student today, he goes forth to the practice of his profession ready to meet any
emergency and take care of it rationally. He has perfect confidence in his own
ability and soon has the confidence of a large clientele, assuring him of a fair
remuneration for his application, preparation and whatever work he may do.
The student who has done three years' college work, as against one or even
none of a few years ago, and by his earnest application and practice of the princi-
ples taught while in college, has been the instrument in placing the profession
on the standing it occupies today. He goes out into the world with a general
knowledge of all subjects taught in medicine and in addition his digital dexterity
which gives him control, " scientia arteque excellentiae.'"
The profession is now receiving more recognition from other professions
than it ever did before, and many prominent men go on record in public prints,
and from the platform, saying that so long as the oral cavity is in such a condition
that mastication of food is impossible, just so long will the body be refused its
proper nourishment. They give us hope and aspiration for even greater things
for the coming student and through him to the profession, and from it to the
people, whom, to serve nobly and well, is the highest ambition that can be
achieved by either individual or profession.

UAH c c d s
Prof. Roe, in addressing a meeting of the alumni of the Chicago College
of Dental Surgery, reasoned thus : The alumni like their alma mater. They
advise prospective students to seek the same fount of learning. A large number
of students make it possible for the college management to engage in the faculty
the best talent in the profession. Naturally, this talent in the faculty is appre-
ciated by the student body. The students become well satisfied members of
the alumni, who. in turn, aid in directing the stream of embryonic dentists toward
the doors of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. Hence, the success of the
college depends upon the alumni.
This logic forms a sort of equilateral triangle, the sides of which are the
alumni, the faculty and the students, respectively, and it will rest equally well
on any side. You see. Dr. Roe at the time was addressing the alumni.
• For convenience in this article, at least, allow me so to turn this triangle that
it rests with the faculty as the base and let us continue the sacrilege by singing
" How firm a foundation ! " And now, " let us go over this subject rather
hurriedly," for the limits in space set by the editorial staff illy comport with
the illimitable possibilities of the topic assigned.
It is something uncanny, the adroitness with which a C. C. D. S. student,
in discussing the opportunities offered by various colleges, turns the conversa-
tion to the respective merits of the respective faculties, and from this point on
there is only one side to the argument. We are proud of our faculty, and not
without reason. A Brophy. a Johnson, a Buckley, a Logan, a Goslee. a
Case — any one of these is a name to which any dental college would justly
point with pride — names held in reverence by the profession — but with such
a galaxy united in one faculty it is hardly to be wondered at that we, the students,
do not. cannot, appreciate to its fullest extent the privilege which is ours, in
attending the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. Let us hope that as the years
go by there may dawn upon us a realization of how grand an opportunity has
been offered us, and may that realization stimulate in us the highest ideals of
our chosen profession, and a spirit of emulation for the masters.
Dr. Brophy deviates from his subject, touchingly to lay flowers upon some
one's grave. Dr. Goslee thunders forth : " Gentlemen, in the various steps in-
cident to the procedure in the construction of an artificial denture, in order to
preclude the possibility of shrinkage in the model, and somewhat anticipatory.
if you please ." Dr. Logan, with his hands clasped in prayerful attitude,
in sepulchral tones, tells us that " pain is constant, for pain is always constant
when the pericemental membrane is involved." Dr. Copeland, entering the pit,
amid the thunderous uproar of a hundred lusty appeals for "story, story." be-
gins : " Have I ever told you the story about " but. in deference to the
advancing years, and his head, which should be gray, let me omit the subject
of the story. Dr. Borland impresses upon us that "when the stomach is dis-
tended, and a drink of water is taken, the water tunnels directly through the
stomach contents and ps-s-t — through the pylorus. What does it do, class? All
together." And the echo thunders : " Ps-s-t and through the pylorus." Dr.
Johnson, with tears in his voice, says: "I do not want one of my boys to go
before the State Board without a clear knowledge of just what is meant by ex-
tension for prevention in cavity preparation."
All this may, at present, sound to our ears like cant, but, carried to every
clime by students of every nationality, mellowed by the changes which must come
with years, the memory of these sayings will form the bonds of union uniting
with each other all who boast the Chicago College of Dental Surgery as alma

I've just been to the clinic — the ninetieth of its kind.
At the old Chicago college, near the lake.
It's not the same old building as it was in nineteen nine. —
The new one, with its campus, takes the cake.
I arrived there Monday morning, on the aero, which was late,
I spent more than an hour on the way :
I recalled, that when a freshman, I had traveled 'cross the State
On the steam cars, and it took half of the day.
My little grandson met me — he's a freshman at the school.
And in an aero-cab took me to Denton Hall.
He showed me the gymnasium with its dandy swimming pool.
For the students of the college, large and small.
And indeed it is some college, with its many halls so grand.
Compared with the old place where we did delve.
These halls, it touched me strongly, as I near them did stand.
Were endowed by members of my class — the class of '12.
For here I was in Denton hall.
Endowed by our old Cap.
And near the campus they played ball,
Chappell field — given by Chap.
Across the field, two buildings tall,
Batie dormitory and Jarman hall;
The latter given by old Rough House,
The former named after Wilcox's spouse.
At the clinic, a new method of crowning teeth, I saw.
Which couldn't be detected if they filled the entire maw.
They kept the mouth more sanitary and the breath more wholesome.
They were invented by my pal — Dr. ( iarisht ( >lsen.
On the corner stood an aged cop, who wore a great big- star,
He was there for a purpose — to help folks catch the car.
He was once a dentist; his health was spoiled by jelly,
Now he's in the open air — our old friend Jozack Kelley.
The members of the faculty are all old friends of mine.
And as the dean, John Gerring's name, is on the topmost line.
( )n examination papers John will take no taffy.
Operative dentistry is taught by Aaron Jaffe.
Sorenson now has Goslee's place ; tin can crowns are all in vogue ;
What's the use of contouring bands? — Why Hart J. was a rogue.
Henson teaches orthodontia and with Devereaux's hair plates bands.
While in the shoes of Daddy Watt, Dr. Wooster stands.
Dr. Fiersten's in Buckley's place ; I heard him in a lecture.
He teaches them what they should know — that's beyond conjecture.
And when he said, with upturned palms, my joy, I could not mask it,
''If you don't like the feesh, my boys, put 'em back in the basket."
I was taken through the laboratories, lecture rooms and halls.
And through the large infirmary, with its decorated walls.
We took the elevator and climbed out on the cornice.
We then went to the basement where George Randolph tends the furnace.
Then we took another cab, for a ride around the town.
And to call on a few classmates who are still above the ground.
I showed ni)' little grandson where our old school had been,
And also the old frat house, where we moved in 1010.
On Ashland and YanBuren, where some of the gang hung out,
My throat became quite thirsty and I dropped in a nearby spout.
As 1 stood and quaffed my drink — which of course was seltzer,
I ran across a friend of mine — Warren H. Smeltzer.
He didn't practice dentistry, for he had made his pile.
And owned a bunch of real estate covering many a mile,
f left him in a hurry, as my grandson stood outside.
And was anxious that his grandpop continue on the ride.
C C D S
We stopped on Michigan Avenue, where it's joined by Madison,
And saw a man who carried a sign and was shooting off a gun.
The sign kept cold away from him and also stopped the rain.
And read : "Cox's Dental Parlors, Extractions without Pain."
I didn't get to call on Cox. for it was after eleven,
But I visited till 12 o'clock with ! )r. William Evans.
He had a great big office, covering a whole floor,
And worked with thirty dentists — and had room for twenty more.
At the reunion of the class that night, held at Hotel Steere,
We sat and talked and laughed and joked till 3 o'clock was near.
Dr. Albright was toastmaster on that memorable night,
His hair is still as black as coal, while mine is snowy white.
Some of the surviving members sent regrets and did not come.
One of these, dated Helena, was from old Doc Hegstrom.
" 1 can't get away, boys, I've a grandchild on each knee,
" So all look wise, and fill the cup and have a drink on me."
When the banquet all was over and we were about to close,
Albright motioned with his hand and then we all arose.
" We mav not meet again boys — only God can tell.
So all take out your horn mallets and give the Yalpo yell."

i^nttstrg of tljr iFutur?
Realizing that this topic is one about which volumes might be written, and
one to which it is difficult to do justice, and still keep the interest of the reader,
the writer will only consider what he believes to be the important points, and
something of their bearing socially and professionally on dentistry.
Dentistry of the future will find men devoting a portion of their time to
public clinical work, for which they will be compensated as well as from their
private practices. The coming of the free dental clinic has been forecast by
prominent members erf the profession, and hardly a month passes that the period-
icals do not contain one or more articles on this subject.
One worthy of mention is the article written by George Edwin Hunt, M.
D., D. D. S., of Indianapolis, lnd., which appeared in the February number of the
Dental Revieiv. The doctor ably discusses the future necessity of this work, and
the article is interesting to men in the profession, and should be of vital concern
to the layman.
Another source by which this movement receives an added impulse is
through the cooperation of the men in the medical profession. Horace Fletcher
has proven that a thorough mastication of food is absolutely necessary to main-
tain a perfect physical condition. Most physicians realize this fact, and that
this is the starting point on which those who are broken in health must build to
bring themselves back to a normal condition ; hence it follows that they must
turn to the dentist many times more in the future than in the past.
Along with the crusade of the white plague, which is of national impor-
tance, the public is being awakened to other hygienic problems, and among these
is an important one — oral hygiene. Rich and poor alike realize that they must
take better care of their teeth, and as the children of the poorer classes will not
be able to afford the luxury of private professional services, some plan must
be devised for their benefit. What will be the outcome? Just this: When the
demands become strong enough the municipalities will have to take action, and
the free dental clinic will follow.
As yet is difficult to say along what lines this problem will be finally worked
out. It seems that every article written on this subject conveys the idea that pri-
vate clinics, or those which have been fostered by the profession alone, with no
help from the commonwealth, have been unsuccessful for several reasons. First,
because it was impossible to make the people see the necessity of taking care of
the children's teeth ; second, because of the fact that the idea was new ; and third,
because the work was unsystemized, and finally, because the men who put their
efforts forward were several years ahead of their time.
C C D S
However, this movement is already under way and is gaining the support
of many prominent men throughout the country. Its cornerstone will have been
laid when the " Forsythe Memorial " at Boston, Mass., is completed. This free
clinical hospital for children has an endowment of some three million dollars,
and will afford the profession the first opportunity to show what can be done in
A word or two might be said as to what this development in the field of
dentistry will mean to the coming practitioner and the future dental student.
The practitioner of tomorrow will have a larger field in which to work. People in
all walks of life will come to realize that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound
of cure, and will be willing to pay larger fees for prophylactic treatments and con-
sultations. As the children grow up they also will more fully appreciate the
services of the dentist and we will have gained one point towards making more
efficient men and women. People will require more of the dentist of the future,
and it will be necessary for him to fit himself to serve them better. Many be-
lieve that this will require an additional year to the course, but upon careful con-
sideration this seems unnecessary ; for, if a student applies himself diligently to
his work through the three years he spends in college, he will be well fitted as a
dental surgeon when he graduates.
Finally, the professional and social standing of the dentist is to be con-
sidered. It is generally conceded that the standard of the profession will be
raised with the establishing of the free clinics in the same degree that the medical
profession was helped by the free medical clinics. The physician and dentist
working in harmony must bring the layman to a better appreciation of our efforts.
Future research work on conditions of the oral cavity, and their relation to the
health of the body, will be a great field for us, as the work of the past has
brought the recognition of this fact that the dentist is indispensable.
In conclusion, the question of our social standing is one which almost
answers itself. Anyone who proves by his worth that he is necessary to the
community will always be respected. However, the dentist, or better, the student
of todav, for he is the dentist of tomorrow, must remember that the social status
is up to him, and that he can make it whatever he chooses. The practicing of
dentistry by honest, hard-working men, will command the respect of the public,
but the slipshod "anyway to get the money" practitioner will only be a detriment
to the profession. Therefore, let us keep foremost in our minds in years to come
this thought, " That it is up to us."
ORA M. CHAPPEIX.
The "All" Critics
Dr. Roach, senior class :
" What's the compensating curve?' 7
Xo one spoke in the row.
Dr. Roach was just breathless, talking face bow.
Many classmates, waiting their turns.
Were all yelling :
"Oh you Steere ! you Lundeen! you Throop ! "
Who next would be puzzled with such a blunt question,
Xot one raised a head, or even made a suggestion.
And the students kept on dreaming.
Dr. Moore, inlays (To be read in Irish dialect):
" Don't you see. Air. Wood,"
Cried Dr. Moore in a mood,
"How wrong the whole thing is?
" How preposterous each mould is,
" How twisted the form is, how jammed down the cusp is,
" In short, the darn thing, an ignorant wreck 'tis.
" I make no apology.
You've studied osteology,
"And should not be blinded by any deflections,
"Arising from unskilled mentals that fail,
" To quiz a class right from the head to the tail.
" Say, Kohr, Mr. Kohr,
" You'll continue a bore.
" And you'll be the laughing stock, and all over sore."
Said Dr. Moore, still raving.
Dr. Mac Boyle and crowns :
" I've studied crowns,
"And other tooth bounds,
"And I'll tell you what I know to be true.
"A crown cannot rest on a root so undressed,
" No crown in the world ever had its sides curled,
" Ever had its base slanted,
" Ever had angles canted,
" Ever had the post screwed into that altitude.
" Thev can't do it because it's aeainst Goslee's laws.
c c ds /: — -i^?
"Anatomy teaches, ethical practice preaches,
" The crown has a form to which all must conform.
" I've made the same crown my study for years,
"And to see such a job almost moves me to tears.
" Say, Henson, I'm amazed,
" You should be so gone crazed,
" As to put up such work, in that way to shirk.
"To look at that crown really brings on a dizziness;
"Any man who has made this, doesn't half know his business."
And Dr. Mac Boyle walked off, raving.
Dr. Johnson, gold foil :
" Examine those flaws,
" I am filled with applause ( ? )
" That Mrs. Allen has rolled,
"Off on you such poor gold.
" So unnatural these seem,
" They sure do make me scream."
And Puterbaugh laughed, to encounter such chaff.
" Do return that, Bell,
"And have them all sent to , well,"
And Dr. Johnson went off raving.
Seniors to faculty :
" With some sawdust and bark.
" We could do in the dark,
" Work much better than that.
" We could make an old hat,
" Look more like a bridge.
" Than that horrid ridge.
" Stuck up there so stiff, like the shape of some creature.
In fact, about it there's not one natural feature."
Just then with a wink, and a shy, normal lurch.
The class very gravely came down from its perch.
Looked around and regarded its fault-finding critic,
(Who thought seniors stuffed) with a glance analytic.
And then fairly hooted, as much as to say,
" Your learning's at fault, let's have fair play.
" Don't waste your time on bright seniors, we pray.
" We are men, and so are you. Great faculty — Good day,"
And the seniors went off laughing.
H. a. a., '12.
Not on the Roll With Other Men
If of knowledge there was just enough,
On this world to go 'round.
And if my brain held not a bit,
Yours with it would abound.
Wouldn't it be funny when applied to our own class?
Only one man would have sense enough to not blow out the gas.
And that man — who ? I need not tell,
You guessed it right the first time. Yes — LaBelle.
For, " I know this, and I know that,
' I'm a specialist in that line.
See — I told you — what'd I say?"
It's the same old story, every day.
If beauty, too, were handed out,
In just these same proportions,
Your face and figure would be just right,
While mine would do contortions.
Now we'll apply this to our class,
And see who'll Apollo be.
You guessed it right the first time —
Yes — McConnachie.
For he primps now and he primps then,
He's primping all the time.
He gazes and smiles into the glass,
And is the beautiful lady of our class.
What if love was to fall upon
Men in this same queer way.
You'd have ladies everywhere,
While I — well, I won't say.
This too, to our own class I'll apply,
Even though I take a journey,
You all know, so you needn't try.
Yes — Tom Turney.
C C D S
" 1 had a swell one in my chair,
With dandy eyes and dark brown hair.
She loves me, and she's from Oak Park."
Another — John, add one more mark.
But he above, who knows all best,
And provides for one and all,
Gives as much to one as to the rest.
Though many of us fall.
Knowledge and ability fall to more than one.
So there are others in our class besides the first named son.
There's Jaffe, Springborn, Spickerman, Lewis and John Gerring.
They all can do a thing or two.
Compare them not with herring.
Now with beauty there are others,
Than the one secondly named,
For Mills and Hainline and Ray Steere
Put quite a bunch to shame.
And as for love, T. Turney isn't in it.
He can't stand with Wilcox. No — not for a minute.
Nor with Henson, nor Turton, Denton, nor Kelley Joe.
None of these gentlemen are listed with the slow.
"All the strength of the world, all its beauty, all its real joy, all that con-
soles and adds to hope, all that which sheds light on obscure paths, all that which
shows us across our poor lives some sublime aim and some immense future,
comes to us from simple beings wdio have assigned to their desires another ob-
ject than the passing satisfaction of egotism and vanity, and who have under-
stood that the science of life consists in knowing how to give one's life." — Simple

Always apply the rubber clam before making' another appointment with
Dig hard and long. The faculty can then fine you as often as necessary.
Whenever you see an amalgam tilling take it out and insert gold.
Don't let your patient know how little you know.
When you do not know what to do and can't get a demonstrator squirt
water in the patient's mouth.
Use the same piece of rubber dam at least on three different patients. It
saves time in cutting holes.
Don't try to cheat Airs. Allen and never flirt with Miss Schaefer through
When Miss Schaefer at the office, talks, don't be afraid she's going to cry;
that's her way.
For the first three weeks in the infirmary be sure and smell every instru-

Don't get the big head. Remember what a mighty class precedes you.
Never be considerate of a freshman unless you want some work done.
Never buy a textbook. You won't need it. Use our extensive library.

What I suppose not to be known, perhaps, by many American students is
that the way in which an American boy with ambition and energy can work his
way through college without depending entirely on the money of his parents or
somebody else, does not exist in Holland.
In the first place, a man who would attempt to serve at table, to be a sales-
man during work hours, etc.. would not be able to earn enough money worth
while to be considered or the amount necessary to carry him through college, labor
being very cheap.
In the second place, after it would be known that a student did do any
work of that kind people would not consider him any longer a gentleman.
This goes to show that the greater part of the people over there are too
narrow-minded to have respect for a man who works, and that an American in
this country without many friends to back him up has a far better chance to
enter a professional career than in the old country.

The history of the class of 1913 dates from the fourth day of October in
the year 1910. It was on that day that the majority of us gathered around the
doors of the old C. C. D. S. to begin the preparation of our life's work.
Many nationalities were represented in this aggregation, giving evidence of
the fact that the Chicago schools are recognized all over the globe as leaders in
this branch of learning. We were taken through the preliminary ceremonies in-
cident to registration in a college and were then given a few days to become
acquainted with our new conditions, and our fellow students. This brief respite
over, our work was assigned and the struggle for an education in our chosen
In a short time the class was organized into a regular body with consti-
tution and by-laws. The following officers were elected :
President, T. E. Emmett Secretary, F. C. McAuley
lice-President, E. C. Horr Treasurer, O. Sainsburv
Scrgcauts-at-.-lrms, L. McDonald and C. Kalbfleich.
The annual "rush" of the freshmen by the three fraternities began on
February 1, and a large percentage of the class pledged to one or another of the
The election of officers for the junior year was held on March 31, and the
following officers were elected :
President, H. E. Fehrenbacker Secretary, T. E. Emmett
Vice-President, C. E. Mooers Treasurer, H. J. McCune
Scrgcants-at-.lnns, O. F. Gall and A. Fehrenbacker.
Shortly after this election our highly esteemed classmate and secretary-
elect, T. E. Emmett, fell victim to appendicitis, and it became necessary to hold
another election. This was done two weeks later and A. J. Huffman was elected
to fill the vacancy.
Towards the close of the year a dance was held in the West End Woman's
Club Building, which proved a big success. The members of the committee were:
E. C. Horr G. H. Toolson C. Kalbfleich
A class book was published, also, to be kept as a sort of memoir of things
which occurred in our freshman year. The committee consisted of:
C. E. Mooers J. D. Taylor W. A. Maxwell
A. J. Huffman R. N. Price H. J. McCune
Upon our return to school to begin work in the junior year we found tha't
all of the class had been fortunate to be able to continue the course. We were
C C D S
also reinforced by several men who had begun in other schools. We learned that
two of our members had become benedicts during- the summer months, and an-
other was married in February. The first two were M. J. Henderson and G. M.
Abbott; the latter, W. A. Maxwell. Shortly after the holiday vacation J. G.
Vaughn left school.
The juniors had thus far been devoid of any very exciting events. The
work begun in the freshman year has been progressing steadily and each day we
feel we are nearer the goal. The second year has brought with it the pleasure
of listening to lectures by the men who have made the Chicago College of Dental
Surgery famous throughout the world, i. e..
Dr. C. N. Johnson Dr. W. H. G. Logan
Dr. J. P. Buckley Dr. H. J. Goslee
On February 1 the junior dance was held, and this, like the one of the pre-
ceding year, was a success. Those on the committee were :
J. H. Bost F. C. McAuley C. L. Sheesley
The election of the senior class officers was held on March 20. Ballots
had been printed and a great deal of interest was shown. The results were as
follows : President — B. F. Porter ; vice-president — W. A. Maxwell ; second
vice — E. C. Cisna ; secretary — W. A. Fischer ; treasurer — F. C. McAuley ; his-
torian — F. C. Grosse; valedictorian — C. E. Mooers ; prophet — A. J. Huffman;
chairman of executive committee — W. H. Carson ; members of executive com-
mittee— R. C. Jones, H. J. McCune, H. H. Pfister, W. F. Abbey, G. L. McClana-
han, N. Ferguson ; sergeant-at-arms — H. J. LaSalle.
Possibly much more might be said of the junior year, but as it is necessary
to get this book to press future events must be omitted. The Dentos has been
established, and as its purpose is good, let us hope it will be kept up by each

Inaugural Address of Sergeant Gall
There is a holy hush over our land today, for
in this solemn moment you are turning over to me the
keys to the destiny of this great student body.
Today you bestow upon me the highest gift in
your hands — you make me sergeant of this renowned
junior class. (Applause.) You have foreseen the
need of a student of broad mind, soul and understand-
ing to guide the activities of these masses for the next
year, and you came to me. You pleaded with me to
come out of my obscurity and rule over you. Ay, a
number of you begged that I accept the crown. I
scorned it. I told you it was two sizes too big for me
but still you clamored and rather than have you 3top
clamoring I accepted the misfit diadem. And now in
thunder tones of ten majority you have elected me. I
congratulate you on your rare good judgment. I con-
gratulate the college in her good fortune. It marks
an epoch in her history. (Applause.)
As the time draws near 1 hesitate to assume the egregious responsibilities
connected with this office. No one feels more keenly than I the inability of the
one who now addresses you. I will rule to the best of my ability and all must
submit to my authority.
The faculty and the " Immortal J. N." have been hesitating to go ahead
until the policy of my administration has been announced. I now urge all to go
ahead and saw wood. I will not interfere unless absolutely necessary. I am
here to reform this student body and hasten the millennium; that's all. I do not
care to become bitterly engaged with any of the official organs of the college. I
have wired the president of the college to go ahead with his policies and that we
will not interfere unless to me they seem obnoxious or tyrannical ; in which case
1 have asked him to consult me.
My attitude as a director is unchanged. I stand for class government
and plenty of it. I stand for closed doors and excused absence. I believe a man
who has the floor has a right to talk, but I believe, too, that the rough necks
should be heard— they always are. I believe in roll call but not too often. I
believe in vacations but do not believe in the college saying just when we shall
leave town and when return. I believe in tests and final examinations, but do
not believe in the fellow with " the pull " getting off easier than I do. I favor
the immediate reduction of college tuition, breakage fee, and laboratory fees. I
also favor the placing of dental supplies on the free list— but remember fellows.
C C D S
mine are not free. I hold that a class office is a class trust, and I urge the class
to trust me and not ask the cash.
All ! my fellow students, you have pleaded for a great, good man to rise
up and right your wrongs. He has ariz ! Tremble, ye class politicians! Skidoo
ye knockers, rough necks, and sore-heads! Skidoo! I am on your trail and I
will have blud. Blud-d-d-d I say! My sword will be drawn for my victims. My
salary will also be drawn. Let us now arise and turn over the brightest page in
our college history. ( Deafening applause. )
BACTERIOLOGICAL LABI IRATORY
Farewell Address of Sergeant Gall
Friends, Classmates, Politicians, Knockers,
Rough Necks, and Sore Heads : If you have tears
to shed prepare to shed them now. I come not to
bury Caesar, but to bury myself, and the corpse is
ready. Today I step from the tumultuous whoop
and hurrah of active student life into well-earned
obscurity amid universal rejoicing. (Applause.)
One year ago I came to the front in an hour of need.
I have told you if our college needed any more sav-
ing I would run for another term, but you have elect-
ed another man to relieve me ; hence, I absolutely re-
fuse to serve longer. (Cheers.)
When I first came into office the war cloud
was black. There were factional fights, fraternity
differences, dissensions, and strife, but today Cronin
and Kalbfleich wear their usual smiles and Price has
acquiesced. When I first grabbed the throttle of power there was consternation
in these halls as to what a new and untried man would do, but my administration
has been an intercollegiate blessing.
The freshman class, the largest ever known, has gradually come to know
its subservient position, and the junior tuition is nearly all paid. The seniors
have all their conditions removed and have in the last few months been allowed
the privileges of the infirmary. A rest room has been provided for the seniors
and a few lathes have been added. We have become the leading Dental College
in the land, and have a new bulletin board, besides arousing a better ethical
spirit, and repainting the furniture of the dissecting laboratory.
For one year I have run things when I ought to have been at home study-
ing chemistry. Have you cut me a tablet in the Hall of Fame? No; you have
cut a club and swatted me. Have you held up my hands in all needed reforms?
No; you have held up argument against reform. Every great move I have made
was pronounced a blunder. One year ago I was happy in my position ; today
ingratitude is my portion. One year ago I entered the class rooms amid the
plaudits of the mass ; today I slink out the back way unobserved. One year ago
I had friends and neighbors; today I am a villain, a boodler, a blathering idiot,
a weak-kneed upstart, an empty-headed ninny unworthy of confidence, a bluffer,
a bully, a sneak, a social highwayman, a moral leper, an intellectual wart, and
some other things. (Cheers.) These are the most unkindest cuts of all. I have
gone rapidly to the dogs. Adieu, vain, ungrateful world. Farewell, class politics.
I am a dead one. Farewell ! Farewell !
Hi & & C C D S
The Microbe Serenade
A lovelorn microbe met by chance,
At a swagger bacterial dance,
A proud bacillian belle, and she
Was first of the animalculae.
Of organisms saccharine
She was the protoplasmic queen,
The microscopical pride and pet
Of the biological smartest set.
And so this infinitesimal swain
Evolved this pleading, low refrain :
lovely metamorphoric germ,
What futile scientific term
Can well define your many charms?
Come to these embryonic arms,
Then hie away to my cellular home
And be my little diatome."
His epithelium beaming with love.
He swore by molecules above
She'd be his own gregarious mate,
Or else he would disintegrate.
This amorous mite of a parasite
Pursued the germ both day and night,
And 'neath her window often played
This Darwin-Huxley serenade :
'O most primordial type of spore,
1 never met your like before ;
And. though a microbe has no heart.
From you, sweet germ, I'll never part.
We'll sit beneath some fungous growth
Till dissolution claims us both."
1. In the beginning were all men created Freshmen.
2. These Freshmen were devoid of brains, but much rilled with Rah ! Rah !
combined with an excessive amount of innocence.
3. And they did run loose, carrying much money and seeing many White signs,
until one day they were Flagged, and for a long time failed to see that it
was all Framed.
4. And when the faithful faculty had cast their eyes upon them, they were sad
at heart and sore of mind.
5. And after a few days the dean of the college said, " Let there be brains
inserted into the cranial receptacle of these."
6. And the faculty wept : but in a few days did strive to obey orders.
7. And soon a part of these Freshmen began to show faint signs of human in-
telligence and the faculty was glad.
8. But when one of the great Junior Prof.'s looked over this mob he was heard
to mutter. " Hyperostosis cranii."
9. But the faculty considered their efforts in a final exam, and with many were
10. And as main- of them as they were pleased with, the faculty elevated to
a middle plane.
11. And this was the seventeenth day of the eighth month.
12. Thus were Juniors created.
F In the fall the class returned to the college in a body, for the faculty had been
pleased with many.
2. Then the students spoke unto themselves saying, " Let us make war upon
this Junior work."
3. And many were the orations delivered by these most noted warriors.
4. Soon their army was divided into two companies.
5. And a part of them did lay siege to the hosts of the dissecting room, which
is situated under the protecting arm of Boer4and.
6. And after many days of hardship and much loss of sleep thev conquered.
7. And it came to pass that after this conquest the two armies again united
and did go forth to battle against the crowns, and many were the bridges
8. Bui soon when the spring had broken forth, this Junior army faced the
armed forces of the faculty, and with blue books many were driven back,
while a large number escaped upon their ponies.
9. And as many as escaped were made Seniors, and they did marvel that there
was no more to learn.
10. So in the sixteenth month of their pilgrimage Seniors were created.
C C D S
1. And unto these Seniors the faculty said, " Let only white coats be worn in
2. And continuing they said, " Be careful, for with ' Daddy' have we found
your work good."
3. Then I beheld Seniors with scared looks upon their faces as they endeavored
to apply the rubber dam.
4. Many also were the students who thought of leaving this province, when the
impression did stick in the patient's mouth.
5. And in the extracting room I beheld the extraction of many sound teeth.
6. And I did see a red-haired Senior administer gas with a hand mirror.
7. Straightway I saw the application of mental therapeutics.
8. And I beheld a man in the infirmary drop his medicine case, at which the
rest of the Seniors emitted a whistling sound — the evolution of the Fresh-
man " Rah ! Rah ! "
9. And I beheld the angered looks of the demonstrators many times but after
a time they said. " Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
10. And in the twenty-fourth month of their journey they saw a new light.
11. This light they beheld issuing from the faculty room, for these noted men
were about to pass judgment upon them.
12. And amid much clamor and glare I saw them all in vesper robes pass before
the faculty and were made Doctors.
13. And in the twenty- fourth month of their sojourn were Doctors created and
started into their new world.

How Drummond Lost $4.00
The day was cold and dark and dreary,
Juniors worked all day and yet not weary ;
'Twas rapidly hastening on toward night
When Drummond planned a hasty flight.
Lecture on pathology was nearly o'er
When " Drum" was seen at the upper door ;
The Prof, himself was wide awake
And the opportunity did take
Of Drummond an example to make,
And showed us how in practice we could run
A bill of five to Drummond's one.
1. Ambition 4 preparation -f-determination=success.
2. Laziness-f-anything else=failure.
3. Twenty-four hours — 8 hours for \vork=too many hours for dream-

They ain't no use in kickin', friend, if things don't come your way;

An' when they ask you how you are, jest say,
" I'm feelin' fine."
They ain't no man alive but what is booked to get his slap;
They ain't no man that walks but what from troubles gets his rap.
Go mingle with the bunch, old boy, where all the bright lights shine.
And when they ask you how you are. jest say,
" I'm feelin' fine."
Yer heart may be jest bustin' with some real or fancied woe.
But if you smile the other folks ain't very apt to know.
The old world laughs at heartaches, friend, be they your own or mine;
So, when they ask you how you are, jest say,
" I'm feelin' fine."

The junior section would he far from complete were we even at this late
date to fail to make record of our chop suey dinner. ( >n this occasion the junior
class was the guest of Prof. Roe.
A large room was reserved, by the host, at King Yen Lo's. At 7 : 00 p.
m. this room was filled with a happy and most light-hearted crowd. To a man
the junior class was present, a fact which pleased Dr. Mover as he saw new faces.
There was no roll call.
After a sumptuous four-course dinner the class was favored with a num-
ber of selections by the Harmony Quartette, and then speeches were in order.
Prof. Roe expressed delight in seeing so many of the boys present, and
hoped that our number might even be increased at our senior banquet. After the
applause had ceased Vice-President Mooers arose and in behalf of the class
thanked Dr. Roe for his hospitality. Dr. Huber followed, and very accurately did
he give the chemical analysis of the chop suey. His remarks were approved by
Dr. Mover, after which Dr. McClanahan arose and enlightened the class with
one forceful sentence, " I am no orator." After the thundering echoes of ap-
plause had diminished sufficiently our classmate, P. J. Xoonan, rendered a solo
which was heartily enjoyed by the class, after which we departed.

A reception was tendered the students at 8 : 00 P.
AI. in the large amphitheater. Brief addresses by
members of the Faculty and a musical program char-
acterized the evening".
Since the members of the Freshman Class hail from
all sections of the United States and foreign countries,
it was decided to elect temporary class officers until
the men might become better acquainted. The elec-
tion resulted as follows :
President B. B. Beatty
Vice President E. M. Wallace
Secretary P. H. Schurmans
Treasurer H. C. Brimelow
Election of permanent class officers. A meeting was
held on this date to elect permanent class officers for
the year. The fraternity factions were arrayed
against one another, each determined to elect his man.
" Liar," " blackguard," and other complimentary
terms were hurled from one faction to the other.
President Beatty got fussed and recognized every one
as " Brother So-and-so," and appointed Lindberg, the
leader of his opponents, to act as temporary chairman
while election was being held. Lindberg immediately
proceeded to delay matters and the parliamentary dis-
cussion that followed became so entangled that a gen-
eral mix-up ensued ; lights were turned out ; Seniors
broke in, bringing with them Dr. Johnson, Dean of the
Student Body, who, we understand, was rather rough-
ly handled in the melee and had the seat of his pants
kicked by some member of our class. We hereby
publicly apologize to Dr. Johnson for any discourteous
treatment he may have received at our hands. The
meeting broke up without any officers being elected.
By a unanimous vote the temporary class officers
were elected as permanent class officers for the year.
A smoker was held at Barnes Hall, 1977 Ogden
Avenue. The evening was spent very informally and
afforded the boys an opportunity of becoming ac-
quainted with one another. The following program
was rendered :
Instrumental Solo Dalton
Instrumental Solo Finkelstein
The Christmas vacation was scheduled to commence
on December 21. Members of the Junior and Fresh-
man Classes decided they wanted a little longer holi-
day recess and although no official notice was given
out, it was common news that there would be no
classes after Saturday, December 16. Some few
members of the Freshman Class did not acquaint
themselves with the doings of their class and attended
Dr. Schaefer's lecture Monday morning. Walking
delegates waited on them asking them to stick with the
class, but a few of the " faithful " (some twelve) even
stayed for Dr. Borland's lecture. The wrath of the
gods was now aroused and from a convenient station
in the skylight of the amphitheater old J. Pluvius
belched forth great quantities of water upon the un-
worthy heads of those twelve. In wilted collars and
shirt-sleeves they listened to the remainder of the lec-
ture. They were later escorted to the basement and
there submitted to the whims of the " Vox Populi "
and were treated to further duckings, plaster paris
shampoos and the like; but not without battle! Oh,
no (it requiring some eight or ten " fry-sized " Fresh-
men to handle one husky, with several others to ad-
minister treatment). Curses rent the air — one fellow
rent his pants — and one was so chagrined and humbled
that great tears came. Class spirit of this sort makes
for a stronger and more united class.

The Freshman class was the guest of Dr. J. New-
ton Roe on this date at a Chinese dinner, served at
King Yen Lo's. corner Clark and Van Buren Streets.
None of the good oriental dishes were overlooked by
onr host and we ran the guantlet from noodles to nuts.
One Freshman spent most of the evening chasing
noodles; said, " I'll bet them there things are alive."
Later cigars and cigarettes were passed. President
Beatty acted as Toastmaster. The following mem-
bers of the Faculty responded :
T. Gribble, president elect of next year's junior
made a timely speech. So did Ezra Waddoups.
Frankel gave one of his inimitable monologues. The
Quartette sang and we all had a bully time. Do it
asrain, Dr. Roe.

When Willie was a little boy,
Not more than five or six,
Right constantly did he annoy
His mother with his tricks.
Yet not a picayune cared I
For what he did or said,
Unless, as happened frequently.
The rascal wet the bed.
Closely he cuddled up to me,
And put his hands in mine,
'Till all at once I seemed to be
Afloat in seas of brine.
Saline odors clogged the air.
And filled my soul with dread.
Yet I could only grin and bear
When Willie wet the bed.
'Tis many times that rascal has
Soaked all the bed clothes thru,
Whereat I feebly lit the gas
And wondered what to do.
Yet there he lay so peaceful like ;
God bless his curly head ;
I quite forgave the little tike
For wetting of the bed.
All. me. those happy days have flown,
My boy's a father too,
And little \\"illies of his own
Do what he used to do.
And I ! Ah, all that's left for me
Is dreams of pleasure fled;
< )ur boys aren't what they used to be
When Willie wet the bed.
Had I my choice, no shapely dame
Should share my couch with me :
No amorous jade of tarnished fame,
Nor wench of high degree ;
But I should choose and choose again
The little curly head
Who cuddled close beside me when
He used to wet the bed.
— Eugene Field.
Field said his wife took the boy away on a visit and he found, in their
absence, he couldn't sleep until he got up and poured hot water on his shirt.

Here's to a temperance supper,
\\ itli water in glasses tall.
And coffee and tea to end with —
And me not there at all.
Ship me somewhere east of Suez,
Where the best is like the worst ;
Where there aren't no ten commandments.
And a man can raise a thirst.
There swims no goose so gay, but soon or late,
But finds some honest gander for her mate.
" Go to my father," was all that she said :
She knew that I knew that her father was dead.
And she knew that 1 knew what a gay life he had led,
So she knew that I knew what she meant when she said,
" Go to my father."
A weakling will lie TO a woman —
A cad will lie CONCERNING her—
A gentleman will always lie FOR her.
The melancholy days are come.
The saddest of the year,
Not cold enough for whiskey straight,
But too d cold for beer.
The uniform 'e wore
Was nothin' much before.
An' rather less than 'arf o' that behind.
For a piece o' twisty rag
And a goat skin water bag
Was all the field equipment 'e could find.
A little health, a little wealth,
A little house, and freedom,
Willi some few friends for certain ends.
But with little cause to need 'em.
Love makes time pass —
Time makes love pass.
A glass is good, and a lass is good,
And a pipe to smoke in cold weather ;
The world is good and the people are good,
And we're all good fellows together.
Here's to woman : Ah, that we could fall into her arms without falling
into her hands.
The bubble winked at me
You'll miss me, brother, when
Here's a health to the girl who will drink when she can,
Here's a health to the girl who will " rush" the tin can,
And a health to the girl who can dance the can-can —
"Pis the canny toast of an uncanny man.
Here's to the love that lies in a woman's eyes
And lies — and lies — and lies.
I thank you for your welcome, which was cordial,
And your cordial, which was welcome.
The Old Home
The old home we first knew on this beautiful earth,
The friends of our childhood, the place of our birth.
In the heart's inner chamber sung always will be,
As the shell ever sings of its home in the sea.

To the Seniors: Why not put a little perfume on your clothes?
To Doc. Mover: Why not let the wife mark the exam books?

To members of the " Toothpick Brigade" : Why not lodge toothpicks in
the corners of your mouths during lectures?
To (most) Frat men: Why not wear your pins in a conspicuous place?
To the Juniors: Why not tell a Freshman how much harder the work of
the Junior is than that of the Freshman year?

" Here's to the fellows who don't go home
While we have a holiday ;
Here's to the men who toil and grind
While the rest of us eat and play ;
Perhaps some day when the years have gone
And our college tasks are done,
They will be holding the easy job
While we have the under one."

THREE (IF A KIND
iFratmtaltsm in (ftnllrge
The magnitude of the task of discussing the benefits — or otherwise — to
be derived from and through fraternities in college is enough to dishearten a
much wiser head than I profess to be. And again, looking at the subject upon
which I have to write, there is so much to be said in favor of fraternities that
it seems an easy matter to handle, but, owing to the lack of time and space, I
will endeavor to write only of the fraternities in our school. By this, I mean
not to go into the history of Greek Letter fraternities, but to speak more partic-
ularly of the relationship between one frat to another, the way by which the
faculty can reach the student body through the fraternities, and lastly, the friend-
ly, or more properly speaking, brotherly feeling existing between the upper and
It is certainly an inspiring sight to see the seniors and juniors congre-
gating in the freshman laboratories and dispensing words of advice and encour-
agement or perhaps assisting a poor " freshie" to obtain a modeling compound
impression of his teeth or to solder a wire upon his brass plate.
I am sure that all who have had that experience are willing to admit that
a word of encouragement now and then has done a great deal toward cementing
a closer feeling between the different classes.
It is a foregone conclusion that a class lacking in class spirit, is deficient
in other things as well, and it seems that in the past, a class, to show its spirit,
thought that a class rush was the proper thing to indulge in every so often.
These rushes were often attended with much properly loss to the school, more
or less bodily injury to the participants, and a feeling of animosity usually pre-
vailed throughout the entire three classes as a result of the unnecessary display
of so-called class spirit.
It is my belief that the fraternities have been the sole means of abolishing
this display or rowdyism, due to the fact that each fraternity has members in
all three classes, who look upon each other more as brothers and realize that
no good can possibly result from a class rush.
Probably the greatest benefits the fraternities have been the means of
procuring for their members are the " frat-houses." Some persons have a very
much mistaken idea as regards fraternity houses but let me say here that there
is mi better place for the student to live during his college year than the " f rat-
house," and any fraternity man will gladly testify to that assertion.
The social life of a college man plays an important part in his college
career, and where can he find a better place to satisfy his social ambitions than
the " frat-house," where the members gather in the parlor after the evening
meal and discuss the happenings of the clay at school, play a little game of cards,
or perhaps gather around the piano and test their musical ability?
C C D S
All this helps to make them feel more at home, and here they have not
that desire to wander around the town looking for amusement, that they would
have were they penned up in some room without any associate save their room-
It is a fact, not to Lie denied, that the best men in every class are fraternity
men. They are leaders in their classwork as well as the social life of the school.
Nevertheless there are many good men who complete their college course and
never join a fraternity, due perhaps to a mistaken idea that their financial rating
will not permit them to indulge in this luxury,
