c Dentos^ 


It has been our aim to make this publication serve as a means of recollection in 
the days to come, of the many interesting and happy events of our student life. 

In so doing, we may have trespassed upon the good nature of some of our friends. 
We beg their kind indulgence; we meant no offense. 

To our fellow students, and members of the Faculty, whose valuable assistance 
has in no small measure contributed to whatever success our efforts may be attended, 
ue extend our grateful appreciation. 

If we have not succeeded as well as perhaps we should, judge us not too harshly. 
We have, done our best. 

In this spirit the 1921 edition of "The Dentos" is respectfully submitted.

The year of 1920-21 marks a new era in the annals of the Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery. It is the year of reorganization of the ownership and management 
of the institution and marks a change in the administrative policies which places it 
upon a firm and substantial basis and insures its future permanence. 

The immense amount of detail incident to the reorganization; the adoption of new 
policies of administration; the securing and arrangement of the personnel of the 
teaching faculty; the minutiae of detail necessary to supply and maintain modern 
equipment; the arrangement and sanitation of the physical property; all has fallen 
to the lot of our new Dean and Business Manager, Dr. Wm. H. G. Logan. 

To this man of education and sterling character whose unselfish devotion to the 
institution that is honored by his connection, whose untiring efforts in its behalf have 
won the admiration and esteem of all of its students and graduates, we are proud 
to dedicate this volume. 

Many beautiful tributes have been paid to Colonel Logan during his varied activi- 
ties in public life; but without entering into a lengthy rehearsal of these, suffice it to 
say that in every instance where he has assumed a task in any capacity, dentistry has 
invariably moved a step forward. 

It therefore gives us pleasure to append for the enlightenment of the elite a 
brief summary of his activities to the present time.

May we ever reflect in future dates 
Of our noted faculty and college mates; 
And as events pass back through the mind 
Who could forget the ladies so kind? 

Now there is Miss Flynn, you understand, 
With that lasting smile and helping hand, 
And a pleasing voice that not even time 
Can erase from the haunts of any mind. 

Next comes Mrs. Allen, our cashier-clerk, 
Who weighs out metals with which we work, 
And drives you wild for a little gild; 
But who cares when she starts to scold? 

There's the information girl ever so fair 

With her Jonteel smile and titian hair, 

Whose natural beauty makes the dimples beguile 

That anxious patient into waiting a while. 

Miss Whitman, you know, is our Dean's assistant, 
Who collects tuition by means persistent. 
Miss Miller, oh, yes, with the Parisian gown 
And a ring and a Sweetie from Denver-town. 

Miss Luneberg, in the extraction parlor, 
Comforts the kiddies when they must "holler." 
She guards all things, even the solutions 
And sees that your technic eliminates pollution. 

Miss Wyneken, all know, checks up cash-slips 
To see that the money moves not from her grip. 
Miss Tyler, we thank thee, has been a godsend, 
For the virtues of her work has made her our friend. 

Another fair lady there is to mention 
And surely she deserves very much attention, 
For she hands out linen in the sterilizing room, 
And punches those cards with a merry tune. 

"Who wants a full upper and lower?" is a cry 
That you'll ne'er forget when the days have gone by. 
Mrs. Prestley, with silvery hair and smile so bright, 
Will walk thru the Lab. from morn till night, 
Yelling the cry with a high-pitched voice 
And offering patients for your plate work choice. 

Now boys, let's forget their grouches, and smile, 
For grouches come to all every once in a while, 
And wish them Godspeed and very much cheer, 
For their memories to us will ever be dear. 

H. Avidan.

The largest testimonial banquet ever tendered to any dentist was given to 
Ur. Charles Nelson Johnson on April eleventh. Approximately a thousand people, 
dentists, their wives, alumni of this school, friends and associates of Dr. Johnson 
filled the Grand Ball Room and Red Room as well as the adjoining corridors at 
the Hotel La Salle. 

After a luscious feast the tables were removed and all gathered in the large 
Ball Room for the toasts of the evening. 

Dr. W. H. G. Logan, in the absence of Dr. Gallie, acted as toastmaster. 

Dr. Johnson's contribution to humanity as a citizen, educator, author, editor 
and practitioner formed the enthusiastic theme of the evening. 

Dr. Henry E. Friesell of Pittsburgh, spoke on "Dental Education and the Need 
of Trained Dental Teachers." His clear cut pictures of dental needs portrayed to 
his audience the strong influence Dr. Johnson has had upon dental training. Dr. 
Friesell showed clearly that if the tendency of increasing the requirements for gradua- 
tion continues, there will be a marked shortage of dentists in the near future. 

Dr. Wm. A. Evans, of Chicago, spoke on "Johnson the Citizen." He visualized 
Dr. Johnson's altruism in his public work pointing especially to the part Dr. 
Johnson took in bringing about enough public opinion to get the subject of Oral 
Hygiene and Oral Health before the people. 

Dr. John V. Conzett, of Dubuque, Iowa, lauded "Johnson the Practitioner." 
His love and admiration for Dr. Johnson has culminated into the realization that 
Dr. Johnson has been and is the ideal practitioner. 

Letters which time did not permit of reading were demonstrations of the love 
and admiration of men in other countries for Dr. Johnson. A message of love and 
good will from his native land was given to Dr. Johnson by Dr. Wallace Seccombe, 
of Toronto, Ontario. 

The dental profession is proud to have as great an editor and author of note 
as Dr. Johnson. Altho the audience knew this, it was not until Dr. Otto U. King spoke 
that they realized the deep significance of this fact that the standard of dental 
journalism is better today thru having had the influence of Dr. Johnson's writings. 

The Alumni were represented by Dr. John P. Buckley who spoke on "Johnson 
the Teacher." Dr. Buckley imparted to his audience the reverence our honored guest 
has won for himself thru his power as a teacher to impart knowledge, to inspire 
and to lead to progress his fellow man. In his closing remarks, Dr. Buckley, in behalf 
of the Alumni, presented the college with a bronze bust of Dr. Johnson. Dr. Logan, 
as dean, accepted the bust. 

The faculty of the college, thru Dr. Thomas L. Grisamore, presented Dr. 
Johnson with a watch and chain. Other gifts were given to Dr. Johnson from the 
"Graduates in the Loop," the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry. Northwestern 
University Dental School, the Odontological Society of Chicago and "The Boys" 
from Los Angeles. 

With his heart full of love and appreciation, our dearly beloved Dr. Johnson, 
in his response, moved his audience to a feeling of greater love and devotion to the 
ideals inspired by his faith in and his devotion to mankind. This great meeting full 
of love and enthusiasm had no other advertising than that of a modest invitation sent 
to the alumni of this school and the immediate dental profession.

College Alumni Associations are the natural outgrowths from college day al- 
liances. At the alumni meetings, graduates meet in whole-hearted friendship to talk 
and live over student life experiences. To go back to the college to attend the alumni 
meetings is an experience that puts the old fountain of youth of Ponce de Leon to 
shame. On April 11th and 12th. 1921, staid old gentlemen attempted to "pass them 
up" in the amphitheater for misdemeanor. 

Here is where "Bill" meets "Gus" and "Val's" presence reminds "Hefty" of the 
day "Val" loaned "Hefty" fifty cents to round out the price of a pair of shoes to go 
to the "Nurses dance," and Dad had been slow in sending the allowance for "books." 

The .size, strength and enthusiasm of alumni associations manifest the spirit of 
its Alma Mater. College spirit means loyalty to the college. It means loyalty to all 
the avenues of the school. Competition is always an impetus for enthusiasm and 
so it proved itself when various classes vied with one another to claim the largest 
attendance. One of the happy features of alumni meetings is that of class luncheons 
and reunions. In this way each class has an opportunity of having a private meeting. 

The Nineteen Twenty-One meeting was great, but Nineteen Twenty-Two promises 
a meeting which will be phenomenal. Don't miss it.

Class Motto, iQ2i 

The world, my friends, has just passed through 
A troubled time; and this was due 

Because the powers that think they know. 


The seething fires of human hate, 

(Conspired by kings, who found too late, 
Their whims, and fancies, and greed, and show 

Enveloped the ones who fanned that fire; 

Burned to the ground their power dire; 

Brought to their souls, but public ire; 
And all because they would not know 
These words, "PRO BONO PUBLICO." 

The class of Nineteen Twenty-One 

Is going out: their work's begun; 

For now they gaze on rising sun 

And will not rest till their work's done, 

And each and all his vict'ry 's won; 
For into public life we go, 
Our standard, "PRO BONO PUBLICO." 

The race is on; we're on our mark, 

But waiting for the gun to start, 

To do our part to lume the dark, 

Wherein the truths of knowledge lurk. 

To moneyed voice we'll never hark; 
But, first and last, this thing we know: 
We'll work "PRO BONO PUBLICO." 

Then let us live so year on year 

That when the end of life is here, 

And comrades come from far and near 

O'er our remains to shed a tear 

And lay sweet flowers on our bier, 
Their only words be those we know, 
"He lived 'PRO BONO PUBLICO.' "

Class ^rcstbent's! &bbres& 

Mr. Toastmaster, Honorable Faculty, Fellow Classmates, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

This commencement night for the class of 1921 of the Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery marks the goal for which we have striven for four years. With it 
are brought the Sweets and Bitters. The Sweets because we have reached the goal 
for which we have striven. The Bitters because on the morrow there will be a parting 
of friends, who were our most beloved companions throughout our college course. 

Four years ago, the first Tuesday in October, 1917, we, the class of 1921, were 
on the threshold of a great and influencing four years which were to mould our 
lives and give us the fundamental principles of our chosen profession. I dare say, 
four years ago, the future of our college course seemed obscure. The mysteries to 
be unveiled by the understanding of the subjects taught throughout our course. 

Lest we' forget our freshmen year the hours we studied over Anatomy, Histology 
and Chemistry. Our Sophomore year, Dr. Watts Shell Crowns and Richmonds. Our 
Junior year, in which we were finally allowed to show our super-intelligence and 
create a name in operative Dentistry, along with the masters of the profession, but 
alas, in our Senior year we realized how much was still to be accomplished and how 
little we really knew. Therefore with this point in view let us strive to overcome our 
deficiencies and add some things ' to Dentistry which is truly great, "FOR THE 

We should always be proud of our D. D. S. degree. Let us strive to uphold the 
honor and dignity of the Dental profession. Let us give our patients our best efforts 
and conduct our practices as Ethical men, so that the members of the Dental pro- 
fession will never have reason to consider us, other than with a feeling of pride and 

Members of the faculty, the time has come when we must bid farewell to the 
past four years under your excellent tutorship. To you it is due, that we are so 
well prepared to enter the duties of our profession. Through you it was made possible 
that we are to be admitted on the threshold to one of the grandest and most promising 

At present, perhaps, we do not fully appreciate the interest you have taken in 
us, or the benefits we derived thru your many years of studying and experience but 
no doubt the day will dawn when the full realization will be forced upon us. To 
bid you farewell is a difficult task, for you will always be numbered among our most 
sincere friends. 

Fellow classmates, we are tonight like a ship at sea with winds blowing in every 

direction. It is up to us to man the ship, set the sails and guide the rudder so that 

we may arrive at some definite port and may that port be a true professional man 

with a long life of usefulness and happiness. Tr „ _

Valebtctorp gfobresa 

Mr. President, Members of the Faculty, Classmates and Friends: 

Four years ago we entered the portals of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, 
imbued with the ambition to enroll in the ranks of our chosen vocation, the profession 
of Dentistry. While we came from every part of the inhabitable globe, necessarily 
bringing with us ideas as diametrically opposed as the points of the compass; yet 
in our minds a cherished ideal was paramount for the attainment and realization 
of which we had consecrated our efforts. Today we are standing in these self-same 
portals, but peering out on a cold world fraught with unseen difficulties and laden 
with responsibilities, the fulfillment "of which is vital to ultimate success. 

This is indeed a day of regret, regrettable because friends must bid farewell ; 
bonds of pleasant association must be broken; we hope not forever. Likewise, it is 
a day of joy; joyous when we feel that thus far our endeavors have been fruitful. We 
can now enter one of the most ennobling of all professions, — a field of service that may 
be considered among the greatest benefactors of civilization. 

Before we go any further, let us spend a few moments in retrospection. The first 
question that presents itself, after viewing the progress that has been made in the 
past few centuries, is a natural outcome of our training. Has Dentistry kept pace 
with the general upward trend of our social sciences; how does it compare with the 
other professions in advanced theories and practices, especially our allied profession, 
the science of Medicine? A brief survey of the social horizon reveals almost miracu- 
lous advancement. Instead of the mundane stage-coach wending its tortuous course 
over hills and prairies we can see in the very heavens themselves, the dream of Darius 
Green, in the consummate product of the Wright Brothers, annihilating time and 
distance. Such has been the progress in our means of transportation and travel. But 
more wonderful than the introduction of the aeroplane with its possibilities in peace 
and war is the transmission of the human voice through no other medium than ether, 
by means of the wireless telephone. We can picture ourselves comfortably seated 
in a limousine or Pullman, chatting with our college associates, or probably our dear 
professors, about reminiscences of our college days. We can stretch our flexible 
imagination still further and visualize these same modes of travel being propelled by 
power originating in a central electric power station. This is truly the age of miracu- 
lous changes. The impossible of today is the reality of tomorrow. In our particular 
field of endeavor, we can proudly feel that it is now recognized as a profession. 
Upon the same plane, Medicine and Dentistry are marching side by side, each solving 
with judgment and skill, the problems peculiar to its sphere. "Focal Infection," the 
football of the medical world, has been kicked back and forth between our brother 
practitioners and members of our sister profession, until we were compelled to give up 
the battle and fondle it as our own. Although it has been a bugbear to our profession, 
and even if a panacea to all its evils has not been discovered, we feel that credit is due 
us for having unveiled its hidden mysteries to such an extent that success remains only 
to be realized. Preventive medicine is claiming the best efforts of the medical pro- 
fession and its results are clearly shown in the general betterment of public health 
conditions. With the advent of oral hygiene and its dissemination among the masses; 
with the treatment of dental diseases scientifically; and with the prominence that 
prophylactic measures are applied in our practices, we can truthfully assert that this 
day is "The Age of Prevention in Medicine and Dentistry." The dawn of a new era has 
arrived. Indiscriminate extraction of teeth has ceased: diseases of oral origin are 
now treated rationally, not empirically; and, let us hope and strive that, in the very 
near future, dental caries shall be treated as any disease of bacterial origin, by the 
injection of a serum or vaccine, thereby arresting the infection in its origin. Then 
shall we be ushered into the "Age of Immunity," the goal of our professional 

Page 68 



These, my classmates, are a few of the problems that are confronting us as we 
assume the duties of our profession. If we think of education as a foundation on 
which to build a future, our college training is only a beginning. It stands to reason 
that we must continue our study throughout life, an institution of learning without 
bounds or limits. Science teaches us that even inert organic matter can be taught to 
become active under the influence of the ultra-violet ray, but it soon loses its lesson if 
not constantly incited by such a stimulus. Likewise, the brain cells of man ; his mental 
faculties, such as reasoning, memory and judgment, become functionally dormant 
unless frequently and systematically applied. So it becomes necessary for us to 
constantly cultivate our mental powers: we must throw the ultra-violet ray upon our 
already acquired knowledge to keep forever fresh our potentialities of research and 
observation. Concentrate your energies: immortal success never grew from scattered 
forces. We must be alert to the innovations in our theory and practices, but at the same 
time conservative in accepting fads and fancies which may prove detrimental to the 
public health. We must be guardians of the people's welfare: it is our duty as servants 
of society. 

But this it not a time to discourse at length upon the problems that confront us. 
nor is it my province to discuss the character of men we ought to be. This is an occa- 
sion where friends must bid each other farewell. 

My dear classmates, for four years we have worked together: yes, we have played 
together. Associations have been formed that will always be inseparable from our 
Alma Mater. Friendships have been cultivated that will bind us closely throughout 
our career. Memories of our college days will long be cherished, and as we tread the 
walks of life, will lighten our faltering footsteps. As we mingle pleasure with sorrow 
today, we can not forget those that have made it possible for us to participate in this 
hour of triumph. 

It is to you, Members of the Faculty, that we bid a lingering farewell. Yours has 
been a thankless task. The unselfish efforts that you have made in our behalf, we hope 
shall not have been in vain. Rather, we wish that each principle inculcated in our 
training shall bud and grow to maturity, and bring forth fruit, which, in a measure, 
at least, shall be compensatory to your sacrificing lives. We know not what our feeble 
attempts may be without your guiding hand. We fear that we have, thus far, been 
relying too much upon your unerring judgment. When your piloting hand will not be 
felt, we will probably weaken and be tossed about on the sea of life. You, no doubt, 
are wondering whether we have really attained that degree of excellence that will 
enable us to cope successfully with the trying vicissitudes incident to a dental practice. 
Let us assure you that the ideals which you have engendered in our lives will be an 
ever-present inspiration, urging us on to a greater and more-exalted expression of our 
life's work. We wish to acknowledge a deep sense of gratitude to the unselfish noble- 
hearted men who have been instrumental in elevating the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery to the high plane it now occupies. In a limited way we sense their ambitions for 
its future and we confidently believe under the guidance of this able faculty that the 
time is close at hand when nowhere shall be found a peer to our beloved Alma Mater. 

As a parting word for you, my classmates, I wish you unlimited success, and 
furthermore, I hope that success shall not be measured alone by material gains, but 
that you shall so live, 

That when thy summons calls to join that innumerable caravan 

Which moves on to that mysterious realm, 

Where each must take his chamber in the silent halls of death, 

Thou go not like a quarry slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, 

But sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, 

Approach thy grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, 

And lies down to pleasant dreams. 

C. E. Eichman.

Mentor Class of 1921 

R. M. J. Kaminski, Ph.G., Historian 

The fall of the year, 1917, was eventful for the members of this senior class of 
1921, for early in October we assembled in the large amphitheatre of the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery to attend the exercises which officially opened that school 
vear. We were the first class to be matriculated under the four-year curriculum, and 
we attentively listened to the eminent speakers of that evening give an outline of our 
work. A rough road was visualized before us, but we did not fully realize the amount 
of persevering study and painstaking operating that would be required to smooth the 
bumps on the journey which would lead us eventually to the culmination of our 
scholastic ambitions. 

Our first thoughts probably were of play; pleasure surely seemed to predominate 
in the minds of many. But soon we were given to understand the purport of our 
presence at this college of Dentistry, and, to the word, informed of the necessity of 
applying our every talent to the performance of scholastic requisites, and leaving 
pleasure to a few periods of relaxation. As we began to feel our importance as Fresh- 
men in our great school, we desired a class organization. Thru due process the 
following were elected to represent us: 

R. H. Morton. President; G. Pauly, Vice-President; E. Rus, Secretary; R. Debach, 
Treasurer; G. Blackwood, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

In January of 1918, those eligible and fit for enlistment were inducted into the 
Enlisted Medical Reserve Corps, a division of the Regular Army, and were under call 
from Washington. It was not until during the summer of the year, however, that any 
were called to active service, and these numbered but few. The rest continued the 
course and with diligent efforts at technic and theory, advanced the confines of our 
knowledge considerably during this first year. 

The second vear brought new studies, with profound additions to those previously 
encountered. But as we became more and more familiar with our surroundings, both 
technic and theory melted under our sweltering ambition. We felt our added im- 
portance, too, by occasionally calling a collar-day, and rejoicing at the expense of our 
fellow-students, the Freshmen. To continue our organization, the following class 
officers were duly elected in our Sophomore year: 

A. Bromberg, President; H. Doench, Vice-President; H. Trachtenberg, Secretary; 
C. A. Helmen, Treasurer; A. C. Barnes, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

The work of the year was greatly affected by the advent of the Student's Army 
Training Corps. This division of the U. S. Army took charge of the school work 
and greatly demoralized the college organization as far as curriculum was concerned, 
to our detriment. A barracks was arranged at the West End Woman's Club building 
on Ashland Blvd. and all students who were not eligible for the Enlisted Medical 
Reserve Corps, were encamped therein. Many difficulties arose and it is needless 
to say that we were all happy when, a short time after the signing of the armistice 
on November 11, 1918, these two organizations resigned their control over our educa- 
tion, and we again applied our energies entirely toward becoming efficient dentists. 

192 1 


The Junior year brought with it Infirmary Practice, and the word, Patient, was 
added to our ever-increasing vocabulary. For the most part, it was the first time in our 
lives that we operated on a living human, and awkwardness stood out on our fore- 
heads in the form of large beads. The Demonstrators were amused, no doubt, but 
with each day the procedure of operating on real, sensitive patients became more and 
more easy, and it, as well as additional theory and technic, was accomplished. 

The class organization of this year was composed of: 

R. Houghtaylen, President; R. Salazar, Vice-President; W. Niedermeyer, Secre- 
tary; F. Z. Radell, Treasurer; J. H. Frame, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

The summer of the year 1920, was one of serious consideration when we learned 
of the grave condition of the business organization of our college, due to the mis- 
management by outside, financially interested parties. However, in September of 
that year we were all overjoyed when we learned that the school was safely in the 
hands of Doctors Brophy, Logan and Johnson, and began our Senior year with re- 
newed vigor after attending the opening exercises, at which time our new Dean, Dr. 
W. H. G. Logan, was officially installed. From then on we realized that we were attend- 
ing virtually a new college with more definite purposes and a more business-like and 
professional spirit. The new Dean instilled in us a profound respect of our duties, 
obligations and purposes, which we accepted, sometimes unwillingly, but nevertheless, 

Our class organization continued and the following officers were elected: 

H. Doench, President; E. A. Rosenberg, Vice-President; C. E. Galbreath, 2nd 
Vice-President. W. Niedermeyer, Secretary; E. Goldhorn, Treasurer; A. C. Barnes, 
Sergeant-at-Arms; R. M. Kaminski, Historian; C. E. Eichman, Valedictorian; Leo 
Frey, Yell Master; G. E. Finch. Song Leader. Executive Committee: H. Tractenberg, 
Chairman; I. Silverman, J. C. Klau. V. Turbow, W. Jensen. 

The Senior Members of the Dentos Staff were elected as follows: 

G. L. Wakefield, Editor-in-Chief; B. E. Albright. General Manager; R. Salazar, 
Assistant Editor; F. L. Stoddard, Assistant Business Manager; Allert Lange. Senior 
Class Editor: G. E. Orsech, Senior Class Business Manager. Cartoonists: E. W. 
Mikula, Chief; A. C. Barnes, B. H. Sachs. 

Our work progressed gratifvingly, and it was with great pleasure that in January, 
1921, we welcomed a committee from the Educational Council of America, who called 
to inspect the school for the purpose of classification. For reasons not divulged, our 
college, although in irrefutable and immaculate condition, was not immediately given 
a Class "A" rating, but on a reinspection occuring during April, full "A" classifica- 
tion was given, to our great joy. 

Thus we come to the end of our school career, the first class to attain the coveted 
degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery under the four-year curriculum. We will now 
separate to assume our respective stations in the society whose health we are to safe- 
guard, and take with us the teachings of our wonderful faculty. May each of us 
throughout life, work with the same energy, patience, and unending desire for greater 
achievement that characterizes this aggregation of famous instructors, and even in 
success, look back with gratitude to our great Alma Mater, the Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery.

The Dentos would not be complete 

Without a word or two 
About the demonstrators here 

We class the Learned Few. 

They know the students" ups and downs. 

Their work embraces much. 
From filling teeth to making plates, 

Their fingers have the touch. 

We start in the impression room 

And then go on upstairs. 
We're always glad our plate work's done. 
Removables, fulls, repairs. 

As we about the plate room gaze, 

Our eyes do soon behold, 
Five babies Doctor Lynch enfolds. 

He's "nuts" on kids, we're told. 

He furthermore is radical — 

With the esthetic time 
And surely makes a fellow hump 

To find the median line. 

"What pretty demonstrator he," 

The ladies always say 
"Who seldom lets a smile come forth!" 

It's Morris on his way. 

That little fellow is a prof 

We Roubert know too well. 

"A three-point set-up that is not. 

Senior, that looks like hell!" 

What's all that noise about you say? 

It's not a thunder storm. 
Doc Bannister expounds his wits 

On cast clasps and their form. 

Let's over to the gas room drift. 

Here serves celestial dreams. 
Doc Hodgman has full charge in here. 

He checks those dreadful screams. 

Now then we up the stairs will go 

To meet the 'firmary crew 
To size them up accordingly, 

And then our work is through. 

I $2 1 


Here struts about with mien sublime 

Our Doctor Mueller fine. 
"What is a rotten pulp?" he asks, 
"In detail write, define." 

Doctor McNeil is at our right 

He gives a student hope 
For he says the boys on his side 

Are surely getting the dope. 

Doc Spencer knows the detail stuff. 

We love his friendly ways. 
He darts about the second floor 

And helps out with x-rays. 

We mention must the pretty girls. 

On time they never come, 
But rest assured they're cared for right 

By Doctor Pop-u-lorum. 

We all need kidding now and then; 

Doc Taylor holds this fort. 

He can explain all mystic things, 

Sell gowns, bones, ev'ry sort. 

Indeed, we love his boyish way, 

With face so bright and fair. 
Doc Purvis is the nightingale 

With light and curly hair. 

In crown and bridgework we are taught. 

We carve till we are "snoozie." 
Doc Krauser guards this line of work. 

At home he's known as "Boozie." 

Crooked teeth demand correction 

And give us lot of fuss 
But Doctors Ford and Biglow do 

The burden shoulder for us. 

In dwelling on the 'firmary crew 

We've touched on all but one. 
Dr. Lepak grades our finished work, 

He's strict — not much for fun. 

As he inspects with trained eye, 

With fingers apt and true. 
We wonder if our filling's right, 

An' if the job will do. 

The smile he gives when he says, "Alhight' 

May mean a nine or six 
Here's hoping the class of '21 

Made grades on high — not six.

When you are old, with silver hair, 
Oft times your thoughts will stray 

Back to the school wherein you spent 
Quite many a happy clay. 

Perhaps in mejnory's golden realm 
Your friends you'll meet once more; 

You'll greet them with a gladsome cry 
As in the days of yore. 

Your teachers, then, you'll meet again, 

And gladly will you see 
Those faithful friends who taught you well 

In days that used to be. 

You'll wander through the old class rooms; 

The infirmary, with all its chairs 
And many olden happenings, 

You'll beckon from their lairs. 

And so in thought you'll live again 
Those four eventful years, 

And they will cause you many a laugh 
Mingled, perhaps, with tears. 

W. F. Schur. 


Old Pal, just stop and ponder what the last four years have meant; think of all 
the tasks surmounted. Has the labor been well spent? The last four years were 
mighty hard — on that I'm sure you will agree, but think of all the work we've done 
and what it's meant to you and me. 

Do you recall your first "State Board," which caused such perspiration to flow 
from off your troubled brow — you thought you'd lose cohesion? How first you tried 
to place the dam about some ill incisor — the while you swore beneath your breath and 
cussed at this tormentor. Don't you remember, long way back, how first you worked 
with might and main to fill a root canal and then the Doc said, "Better try again." 

But now, old man, all that is past; we're at the end of all this toil. We've learned 
to fill a root canal, adjust the dam and pound a foil. 

We've gained a deal of knowledge for our Profs, were of the best, still we have 
no right to strut about — to praise ourselves — throw out our chest. For you and I 
have just begun to learn the art of Dentistry and what we know is naught to what we 
can acquire if we but try. 

So just twixt you and me, old Pal, let's face the world and try to grow, for 
though we think we're wondrous wise, there's quite a bit that we don't know.

Friends, tooth carpenters, blacksmiths, lend me your ears. 

I came to slam this noble gang, not to praise it. 

The evil this bunch has done will live after us; 

The good will be interred with our bones. 

So let it be with these worthy students. 

Our noble Dean hath told you this mob was ambitious. 

If it were so it were a grievous fault. 

For which one of us hath shown any startling signs of latent ambition? 

Here under leave of Dr. Logan and the rest, 

For our Dean is an honorable man, 

So are they all, all honorable men, 

Came I to speak to this class. 

It was my friend, faithful and just to me; 

When I fumbled a question it cheerfully answered for me. 

Yet Dr. Puterbaugh says it is ambitious. 

And Dr. Puterbaugh is an honorable and il lustrous physician and diplomat. 

Verily he hath cured mourningitis of our nails 

Which is marvelous to behold. 

Did this in this noble bunch seem ambition? 

When the smokers have cried, the candy eaters wept incessantly. 

Ambition should be made of sterner stuff. 

Yet even Dr. Johnson says this class is ambitious, 

And Dr. Johnson is an honorable man. 

You all did see that rather than flunk his tender administrations 

This crew of tooth plumbers did stand the slings and darts of more Board foils. 

Still Dr. Johnson says this class is ambitious 

And Dr. Johnson is an honorable man. 

I speak not to disapprove what these gentlemen have told you, 

But I am here to speak what I do know. 

You all did love this school life once, not without cause; 

What tempts you now to leave it? 

Oh, judgment, thou art fled to bestial hearts, 

And you have lost your reason — bear with me. 

My heart is in this blamed old senior class, 

And I must pause till it come back to me. 

D. S. N. 

This world would be a lonely place. 

If I alone were in it. 
I think Fd like to live therein 

For almost half a minute! 
And that is why God gave us friends, 

For fair or stormy weather, 
So we could be our whole lives through, 

Good fellows here together. 
Then let us laugh and pledge our faith, 

'Til Death our names shall call. 
And close the book of fellowship, 

For you and me — and all. 

P. Okner.

As our high school days were over 
The world loomed bright and fair 

With its many calls and duties 
We felt equal them to share. 

Our field of work was chosen 

By Mother, Sister, Dad, 
As the family dentist told them 

"He's quick to learn — that Lad." 

So we were all excited 

For a college must be chose 

And new clothes must be purchased 
For a professional man must pose. 

The school was Chicago Dental 

Whence Dr. Pullem came, 
For Johnson, Logan, Brophy, 

Gave that great college fame. 

The clothes were neat and customed 

To the very latest style, 
In a town of twenty hundred 

No one would dare to smile. 

So off to school we started 

With the folks all at the train 

Our pockets full of money — 
We felt a little vain. 

The farewell of mother and sister 

We will not dwell on here 
Nor the advice our fathers gave us 

As the train was drawing near. 

We climbed upon the platform 
When the monster came to rest 

And hurried to a seat near by 
Where the folks could see us best. 

When at last the bell was ringing 
And we waved our last farewell 

The train moved on its journey 
And we sat there in a spell. 

The ride was long and tiresome 
But we landed here all right 

And with due amount of searching 
A room was found that night. 

Page 76 

I<)2 I 


The next day found us busy 

We registered at the school 
And purchased equipment needed 

To fulfill every rule. 

Our freshman year then started 

At times we gave up hope 
Our brains were in a muddle 

For dissecting was no joke. 

We studied long and hard 

On subjects hard to spell. 
They set a fellow crazy 

And made him say, "Oh, H !" 

At last with studies "mastered" 

It made us really sore 
To find on us conditions 

Though passed to a proud Soph'more. 

The second year a mixture was, 
And a mixture hard to beat. 

In fact it had us going 

And almost spelled defeat. 

We couldn't make the ivory 

Resemble teeth at all. 
Until we carved a basket full 

At that our grade was small. 

The black-smith's job was tackled 

With all the zest and zeal 
It takes to make an instrument 

All hammered out of steel. 

We searched and searched in Chemistry 
For unknowns and what-not. 

And spent the mornings drowsing 
In line for Daddy Watt. 

Thus we passed the Soph'more year 

We'll go right up the line 
For the Junior Year is waiting 

And we're short in space and time. 

Professional we surely were 

No more to be the goat 
With a regular dentist's outfit 

And a brand new clean white coat. 

We placed our case and engine 

At a timidly chosen chair, 
In an isolated corner 

So no one could see us there. 

Page 77 



Those were anxious moments 
As our technic we applied 

And our skill at operating 

Was — Or the Demonstrator lied. 

All day we'd work on a cavity 
Wisely we'd grind and pose 

And then about four-thirty 
The pulp we would expose. 

How we made the points, I fear, 

We dare not here reveal 
As others are yet to follow 

'Twould be very wrong to squeal. 

With due consideration 

Some bridge-work yet to make 

We evolved a dignified Senior 
With one more year to fake. 

This was a fight to finish 
And never will be forgotten 

Some of our work was excellent 
And much was slightly rotten. 

Upon us was the wrath of Gods 
Our fingers got numb and sore 

From pounding gold-foil fillings 
Then they demanded more. 

How can we express this surging tide 
Of days of gloom and joy 

When everything seemed upside down 
And we a floating buoy. 

'Tis impossible for one to tell 
Of Seniors' work and strife 

As nearing graduation time 
They fit themselves for Life. 

Tomorrow we'll look things over 
When leaving our school behind 

Facing the public's judgment 

On the Work we do — and the kind. 

So here's to our Alma Mater, 
The Faculty, One and all, 

Who gave us everything they had 
And said their bit was small.

Windowitis is a diseased condition of the infirmary, characterized by congestion 
at a window. The most frequent site of the malady is the north and west supply 
windows in the north infirmary. 


The disease is produced primarily by an inherent propensity of the femaloblasts 
to use, persistently and co-ordinately, the superior ends of the respiratory and 
alimentary tracts for the production of sound waves that serve no useful purpose. 

Morbid Physiology and Anatomy: 

There is a positive and mutual tropism exerting itself between the two femalo- 
blasts within the supply booth. As the cells move together the emission of sound 
waves begins and increases gradually in pitch and rapidity. Energetic movements of 
the capital and digital extremities accompany the sound waves. It is important to note 
that there is no intermission in their activities and that they take place simultaneously; 
in fact, to the examining eye, the appearance is that one is trying to outdo and 
repress the other. 

External to the supply booth there is a gradual grouping of seniorcytes and 
juniorcytes, first as a small cluster, but as the number increases they take on the 
formation of chains or lines extending into remote corners of the infirmary. As the 
condition becomes aggravated "blue streaks" may be seen emanating from the cells. 
General restlessness and excitement prevails, except among the few closest to the 
window, which are somewhat restrained. Some of the cells may leave the chain, others 
try to enter, but are repelled until they fall in at the end of the line. Many degenerate 
under the severe strain to the point that their behavior is markedly altered. The 
characteristic, overbearing attitude of the seniorcytes is lost and replaced by manual, 
pedal, or vocal repulsion. Here may be seen the forceful impact of one of the pedes 
of a seniorcyte with the gluteal protuberance of a juniorcyte or the stripping of the 
supra-tibial dermis of another cell through the diligent efforts of some macro- 
seniorcyte. The chain seems to sway from side to side, but as the condition is 
prolonged, the movements are less pronounced, and later the cells become dormant 
altogether, only giving off low, stertorous sounds. 


Subsidence of the condition begins with the physical exhaustion of the femalo- 

This, at least, is the view of the writer. 

Orsech holds that an organism is incapable of exhaustion as long as it is 
guided in the performance of an action by a natural, unreasoning impulse. 

RadeH takes a similar stand, and adds that in the case of the femaloblast. 
there is absolutely no mental energy expended. 

Finch ventures to assert the belief that the cessation takes place as a result 
of a sense of duty, as it were, brought about by pecuniary stimuli. However, 
this opinion seems to be entertained by no other. 

They move apart. One or the other usually migrates to the mirror hanging on 
the vault door. In the reflection here may be observed the transformation the cell 
undergoes. The ventral aspect of the caput which had taken on a crimson hue — 
sometimes blue or almost black — during the oral activity just suspended, again 
becomes pale. The filiform appendages of the same region, straggled and tangled, 
again become smooth, and in arrangement, uniform. At this point, frequently, the 
cause of the disease may manifest itself again and the femaloblasts resume activity. 
Otherwise they make their appearance at their respective windows. The chains now 
begin to move with muttering sluggishness as the cells are activated by the nearness 
of the femaloblasts.

Class $ropfjecp 

By A. F. Stark 

Dear Doctor: 

Minneapolis, Minn.. October 16, 1946. 

Let me tender you my sincere regrets for inability to attend the big week in 
Chicago. Doctor, you missed one of the most enjoyable and profitable weeks this 
life has to offer. 

The National Dental Meeting and Class reunion were both tremendous affairs. 
No doubt the Society Journal now being edited by our worthy classmates Wakefield 
and Albright will have a detailed account of the proceedings. Nevertheless, I can't 
refrain from pointing out a few of the things you missed. 

Above all we were successful in making Dr. Doench head of the National Dental 
Society. Doench conducts a very exclusive practice in Dayton, Ohio, and judging 
from his ability to quiet the strife and troubles of the class of '21, he should lead this 
society to great achievements. 

The financial worries of the Society are forevermore ended. George Orsech 
was elected treasurer. You know his tenacious ability to get what he wants. Nieder- 
meyer was re-elected secretary. You know Red was recently elected mayor of 
Bloomington on the anti-gun ticket. He informed me that he was for the strict en- 
forcement of the blue laws. Oh ! what a change time has brought over the old 
Red Head. 

Max Wexler and Horevitz nearly broke up the meeting the very first day. Max 
sponsors the idea that all children should have all their teeth extracted at the age of 
twelve. In this manner, he contends all dental caries, focal infection, odontalgia 
and the like will be eradicated. On the other hand. Horevitz maintains that the 
same end may be accomplished by removing all the pulpa at the age of twelve. Then 
the fun began. Finkelstein, one of the leading plate specialists of the day, staunchly 
supported the Wexler method, while Ostrovsky. Rosenberg and Turbow defended the 
Horevitz method. 

On the second day of the convention, Dr. Arthur Rice held a clinic in removable 
gold foil. Dr. Rice has spent years in research work along this line. He first dis- 
covered removable gold foils one blue Thursday back in '21. Dr. Curtiss Eichman 
read a paper on his new anti-dental-caries vaccine. After hearing his claims for 
his vaccine, I decided to take up plumbing as dentistry will soon be a thing of the 
dark ages. 

Dr. Field gave a very good clinic showing his achievements along the lines of 
fixed bridge work for the edentulous month. 

Wednesday was manufacturers' day. The exhibits and displays surpassed 
anything I have ever seen. The display of "The Belanyi and Rus Dental Acces- 
sories," was quite the center of interest. Rus was kept busy demonstrating Finch's 
automatic gold foil condenser. With this wonderful machine all that is required of 
the operator is to turn on the switch, the machine inserts the foil. Galbreath and 
Imber were showing their new root canal filling machine. By means of compressed 
air they fill root canals perfectly; much as you would cast an inlay. 

Dr. Ganey had a full stock of his ready-to-wear plates on display. Dr. Frame 
was kept busy writing orders for his cavity paste. After years of hard work, John has 
at last perfected his paste. All you do is paint the outline of the cavity on the tooth 
with his paste and as the next day the patient presents with cavity nicely etched out 
waiting to be filled. 

Thursday. Trachtenberg showed a very interesting series of x-ray motion pictures 
of gold casting. The failure of castings was clearly pictured. 

Page 80 



Dr. Thomas, of Chicago, and Dr. Vogt, of Montana held an oral surgery clinic. 
They successfully transplanted the teeth from a monkey to an edentulous human 

The events of the society meeting were all worthwhile enough, but the most 
enjoyable feature of the week was the class of '21 reunion. It was held on Wednesday 
night and at the school. 

Have you seen the new school? Say, doctor, it certainly is a wonderful building: 
nothing like it in the country. It stands as a worthy result of Dr. Logan's relentless 
efforts for the betterment of devoted education. 

Many of our former classmates are now members of the faculty. Novak and 
Mikula are instructors in crown and bridge; R. C. Shur, in pathology; Kaminsky. 
in therapeutics and materia medica; Lange, in orthodontia; Frey, in prosthetic 
chemistry, while Oren heads the infirmary. 

The most enjoyable feature was the banquet given in Dudley's elaborate 
restaurant. As back in the good old days, the S. H. quartet dispensed sweet 
strains of harmonious discord. Thompson, Bierman, Morton and Klau still have 
very good lungs. 

I wish it were possible for me to tell you about all the fellows who were there, 
but time is too short. Roth was there. He has made a fortune conducting a mail 
order dental office. Helmen has become independently rich by his testimonials for 
various chewing tobaccos. Yes, Charlie is still a fighting woman hater. 

Salazar flew up from Peru in his speedy little aeroplane. He averaged 300 
miles per hour for the trip. Salazar has done much for dentistry in the South 
American countries. 

Marion and Stoddard were there. Marion is located in Seattle, Washington, 
where he conducts a large practice. Stoddard is head of the Iowa Dental School. 

Harvey Buehler brought some of the dust from the Dakotas with him. Harvev 
said he tried hard to bring something else with him, but got too thirsty on the way. 
Nevertheless, he boasted of his ability as a home brewer, but we did not get the oppor- 
tunity* to indulge in his concoctions. 

Nichols and Houghtaylen are now located in the southern part of the state. 
They just recently completed a tour of the foreign countries. 

Remember back in '21, wherever there was a good looking girl you were sure 
to find Radell. Well, at last he is in his proper sphere. Radell is practicing in 
Turkey. The Sultan was so pleased with Radell's work that he endowed him with 
a harem of a hundred most beautiful women. No, Radell wasn't to the re-union. 
He could not leave the ladies. 

Cupis is now dentist to his majesty, the King of Greece, while Jensen holds a 
like position in Denmark. 

The two boys from Dixie, Murphrey and Hinson, have done wonders along 
dental lines in the Carolinas. 

Looking back upon the old class of '21 they all have seemed to reach the 
goal of achievement in dentistry. Of course some have fallen by the wayside, but 
most are still going strong. 

In closing, let me tender you my sincere regards to yourself and family. I do 
Lope it will be possible for you to attend the big re-union scheduled for next year. 

Sincerely yours, 

A. F. Stark.

The Da-Da Club was organized for the magnanimous purpose of stimulating an 
interest in the propagation of civilization in general and dentistry in particular through 
the ensurance of future generations. 

The worthy father, the venerable heads of our class, convened and in lofty and 
solemn tones promulgated the object of their organization. 

"In recognition of the facts that the advancement of civilization is desirable, 
that the wonderful deeds of our class ought not to pass into oblivion, and that the 
accomplishments of our class can best be disseminated to posterity through the 
efforts of our children; we aim to establish precedents to stimulate the spirit of 
paternity among the members of our class." 

The requirement of a candidate for membership is the fatherhood of at least one 
child. All offices of importance are automatically filled by members in direct pro- 
portions to the number of their offspring. 

A. Rabin, G. E. Finch, E. Mikula, R. M. Kaminski, H. Trachtenberg, A. Lange.

A successful campaign was launched for securing pledges for the club. The 
following pledged themselves to become progenitors: 

Oren — of twins. 

Wakefield — indefinite number, but hoped to join very soon. 

Novak — plenty. 

Mac Williams. 

Field — no definite promise, but implied an ambition of becoming president. 

Morton — would find out from his wife. 

L. Lieberman. 

B. Lieberman. 

Max Wexler. 



Goldman — asked for more time. 


Doench — five. 




A few prospectives were interviewed on their likelihood of joining: 

Hall: "Nothing doing." 

Orsech: "I haven't time to bother." 

Peterson : "Put my name down." 

Thompson: "I haven't got any money." 

Bierman: "I've got a brother who'll join." 

Avidan: "I will if Mitgang will." 

Barnes: "Sure, I'll join as soon as I grow up." 

Greene: "How much?" 

Roth : "Get out." 

Lubkin: "I am waiting for an inspiration." 

Reed: "He! he!" 

Radell: "I have tried to get a wife." 

A. Wexler: "When is the last day for joining?" 

Kirschner: "No ambition." 

Mitgang: "I will if Avidan will." 

Helmen: "It depends upon how many points I get." 

Salazar: "Its a good club, all right."

mg a s>ong o Pernors; 

Four long years we stood the hard test, 
Four long years we tried our best 
To uphold our standard, second to none, 
We, the Senior class of '21. 

From lands we have gathered far and near; 
But Chicago in memory, we'll always hold dear. 
There's Chicago Dental College where we did meet 
At the corner of Wood and Harrison streets. 

Recollections vivid to us appear 

Of days from our Freshmen to Senior year. 

Of feats we tried, of pranks we played, 

Of many friends that in the years we've made. 

Now the day is near when we must part 
And leave our Alma Mater with a heavy heart. 
But ere we leave to go our several ways 
Let us think of our friends of college days. 

Here's to our President Doench, noble and true, 
Orator and member of Da Da Club, too. 
Our sedate vice-president, Rosenberg, E. A., 
Called "Father Abraham" for his wisdom they say. 

Neidermeyer "Red" of stature imposing 

As Secretary minutes kept from opening to closing. 

Goldhorn our treasurer of mien very still, 

In politics may rank for he follows "Big Bill." 

Historian Kaminski, so Clio recorded, 

A sweet little nurse to the altar escorted. 

"Duke" Eichman made us weep with valedictory address, 

A modest man (by request) could not find did confess. 

What order prevailed when Barnes was in view, 
Our Sergeant-at-Arms, true humor he knew. 
The roof was raised, the air was rent 
By cheer leader Frey and every Dent. 

Dolor fled and worry held no sway 
When Song Leader Finch led the carefree lay. 
Then our Quartet with melodious strain 
Inspired every man to sing the refrain. 

Our Dentos staff worked day and night, 
Worked hard to make the Dentos right. 
For class and school they represent 
And to limelight brought each senior dent. 

192 I 

Page 85 


General Manager Albright endowed with much pep 
Tho he may seem bashful can make a quick step 
Editor in Chief Wakefield, this was our tip 
To clergy preferred Da Da Club membership. 

Handsome Class Editor Lange. man of poise 
And Class Manager Orsech were two clever boys. 
Mikula and Sachs ,were there with the art 
Tho Mikula, we know, could draw from the start. 

Nobility we had from lands near and far 
As "Clown Prince" Thomas and "Count" Salazar. 
The "Crown Prince" from Michigan was due, 
"Count" the gentleman was from Peru. 

To measure height and length we had good means 
For Ganey and Helman were two tall string beans. 
Gentle Blair and blushing Peterson "Swede" 
Were surely our two modest men, indeed. 

Marion in excitement eloquent became. 
Stoddard on the staff figured with his name. 
Mc Williams was a popular social butterfly. 
Aviator Stark soared to the Pleiades in the sky. 

Isenson, Horevitz, Levine and Rabin 

Were bound for Jerusalem to make it their haven, 

While Salian. Mitgang and Leiberman, B. 

To sit in Sanhedrin as sages three. 

Miller our man of dignified physique 

Was a firm adherent to Wakefield's technique. 

Uchiyama. Nosaka and Hattori man 

Were three acquisitions from flowery Japan. 

Balanvi with his invention astounds engineers, 

For Greene, our busv bee, three cheers. 

"Sleeping Beautv" Hinson and Chapiewski are twain, 

When a skirt looms in sight something snaps in their brain. 

Barnard and Kirschner are musical dentists of fame. 
Stone for his firmness speaks with his own name. 
Stineberg was precise in certain ways, 
"Look pleasant, please," Trachtenberg says. 

"You tell 'em," Jensen, and he did know 
For he studied till sparks flew for "Bacillus Joe." 
From Best we have learned that perseverance wins. 
We have Jordan and Gelford. the Siamese twins. 

Oh, how Carolina fried chicken was missed, 

That special it was did "Cavalry" Murphrey insist. 

Morton again longs for the dawn of the day 

When 3l/o T in brown bottles again will hold sway. 

192 I 


Rus of the quartet, is so plump and so round, 

A Diamond T truck he drove, but reduced not a pound. 

Thompson has a liking for shirts of fine hue; 

He'd coax the ball to make billiard with song and with cue. 

Rice is the man who no worry knows 
While Brady's seen moping wherever he goes. 
Applebaum the blondy has a wonderful line. 
Avidan, a faculty for aluminum plates that shine. 

Hall, our old standby as orator classed. 

Field and Cupis were there when a Baby Doll passed. 

Corcoran was a thresher by trade; 

A dentist and Chicago "diplomat" by fate. 

Jackman and Buehler are boys with a smile. 
And Knight, our friend, is he from the Nile? 
Byrnes and Imber are two quiet chaps 
And neither have been permitted to nap. 

Ostrovsky was a pest of Kuzminsky's life. 
Harrington to sweeten life also took a wife. 
Wagner was an orator of soap box fame. 
To be "he" vamps is Lubkins and Turbow's aim. 

"Butterfly Vogt is very modest they tell 

At "Follies" lorgnette begged ere the curtain fell. 

Houghtaylen staid and of thoughts so serene. 

Showed to the boys pleasure the pictures on the screen. 

Reed displays elegance and grace when he walks, 
M. Wexler in excitement at elections talks. 
Offenlock is known of principles steady, 
Finkelstein to oblige is ever ready. 

Radell professes skill of any trade, 

Knows lemons from tomatoes, wields well a spade. 

In Novak's hand the razor just sang; 

Klau is a boy of the Yo! Yo! gang. 

Pursell and Kapost are laddies demure. 

W. F. Schur is oft taken for R. C. Schurr. 

Wexler A. and Feuerlicht to us portend 

That as seniors and dentists respect they demand. 

Radzinski to be an honor to Detroit will strive. 
Krause for future use a taxi learned to drive. 
To Okner, Zasser and Zacovitch future seems sunny, 
But why the future, they rather the money? 

To Reininger, collar day was the happiest day. 
Goldman's S60 bonus took wings on the way. 
Frame is no relation to his nomer C. L. 
Bierman as a tenor may emotions compel. 

IQ)2 I 

Page 87 


Oren and Nicholls are inseparable two; 
And what would Galbreath without Jarrendt do? 
Roth as a gold foil shark has starred. 
Rosenberg, J. L., worked furiously hard. 

Silverman was a man sensibly well groomed. 
Pugilism by Spiro has been much doomed. 
Whelan, teeth to size and color of patient would match. 
Reiger, on Saturdays. 2:15 Aurora would catch. 

Of our two last men, but not least, we must tell: 

Of Sherman, the lawyer? and Laundry — Lieberman, L. 

Now in the end, when near is our day, 

We wish all our friends "God Speed" on their way.

By Samuel Lubkin 

Characters of cast: A Junior, Patient, Demonstrator, Students. 

Scene: Infirmary. 

Time: Between 9:00 A. M. and 5:00 P. M. 


Patient reclines in the chair with head lower than her heels. "Dr. will you please 
tell me what is the matter with me. It is almost 8 years since I suffer with headaches, 
pain in the back, stiffness in the joints at times, and general pain in the body. Do you 
think the teeth cause me all the trouble?" 

"I am quite certain it is your teeth." 

'"Do you really think you will cure me of all my troubles?" 

Patient staring directly into the student's face. 

"Oh, certainly! All right ma'm, I'll be back." (He gathers almost all of his 
instruments and walks away with them. Being away for about half an hour he 
returns. Places all the instruments on the rack.) 

Patient raises head looking up with fear. "Will you use all of these for me?" 

"I think so." (Patient reclines head and is silenced with awe. I Student hold- 
ing mirror and explorer.) "Open mouth please." I Patient opens mouth and looks 
upward. The student pushes mirror far back in the mouth and begins examining 
mouth. I 

(Pokes with explorer on a pyorrhea tooth. Point is in the bifurcation of the 
roots.) "This tooth has a slight cavity." 

(Gagging from the mirror.) "No wonder I'm sick." 

(Goes on with his examination.) "This tooth needs a Richmond." (Having the 
point of the explorer in the pulp chamber of the cuspid which is decayed under the 
gum.) "This space can easily be filled in with a bridge. (Having index finger at 
the alveolar ridge between central incisor and second molar. Both teeth have receded 
gum and incisor wabbles.) 

"Dr. it's a very good idea." 

"I would not suggest anything that's wrong." (Goes on examining lower arch.) 
"This tooth has a cavity, one missing, this has two cavities. This tooth must have 
devitalization by pressure anesthesia. This is very good. Well, ma'm, your teeth are 
in an excellent condition." 

Patient (with a happy smile) : "Very nice." 

"Now, ma'm, I'll go over it once more and have these recorded on a chart. 
(Shows patient the chart.) Your name please?" 

"Margaretta Steopanozubinskei." 

"How do you spell it?" 

"I don't know." 

"All right, I'll spell it myself. (Reads it.) Stepabuzki." 

"Almost all right." 

(Examines mouth again, leaves mirror in the mouth and turns to the racket to 
register on chart. (Patient gags.) "That's all right. (After teeth are examined 
student begins his queries again. I Where do you live?" 

(Slightly indignant.) "What is that for?" 

"Oh, just so! How old are you?" 

"Cut it out, Doctor, I want to have my teeth fixed. You don't intend to write my 
biography?" (Smiles with regret.) 


Page 89 


"Say 'ah,' again." 

Did you have your tonsils re- 

( Records.) 

"Oh. no! My intentions are noble. It is my pleasure to know as much about 
a patient as I can possibly find out. In order to know how to proceed with my 
therapeutical application with reference to the treatment of the case. Ma'm, you'd 
be surprised how many cases are inherited!" 

Calmed, but hesitates. "Hm, is that so?" 

"Please protrude your tongue to make the pillars visible and so I will de- 
termine whether your tonsils are hypertrophied." 

(Confused.) "What counterfeit tonsils?" 

"No enlarged." 


(Places mirror on tongue.) "Please say 'ah.' " 

"Ah, ah." 

(Looks into mouth and does not see anything.)

There was a Doctor named Hall, 
Whose attention to class we'd call 
Just ten per cent perfect, 
While yet he would expect 
One hundred and ten from us all. 

If I had my pick of work again, 
And weighed each for its worth, 

I'd rather be a dentist than 
Any other thing on earth.

Once upon a time a Doc was perusing his cranial typography for the purpose of 
smoothing the gradually decreasing number of filaments which crowned that noble 
dome, when the idea struck him that instead of putting a hat upon that crown- 
supporting member, he would brush a few of the precious filaments across from side 
to side, thus joining the enclasping band of bristle at its ends by this transversing 
path of locks. The stunt seemed so applicable to vital abutment teeth, as well, 
that he brought forth the great discovery of the MacBoyle Posterior Abutment 
Piece, consisting of a transversing bar in the occlusal, joined at its ends by the clasp 
portion of this successful eliminant of the shell crown on vital teeth. "Quid rides?

The first talking machine, upon which no improvement has as yet been made, 
was made out of a rib. It is probably true that Radell was not made from a rib, 
but the case illustrates pretty well what atavism will do. 

A real light is rarely hidden under the proverbial bushel, but there are some who 
keep a bushel to create the belief that it conceals a light. Apropos Houghtaylen in 
this connection stands out very prominent. 

There are those who are so fond of arguments that they will not eat anything 
that agrees with them. As I see it, Kaminski belongs in this category. 

Barnes is a diligent and well-meaning dentist who wanted to take the teeth out 
of the League of Nations; well, maybe he didn't succeed but he surely gave it plenty 
of gas. 

Mikula has always something to harp on. I hope he will be as fortunate in the

Well, boys, we've been four years together, 

Four years of comradeship, four years 
Of work thru fair and stormy weather, 

Thru days of laughter and of tears. 

And now we know of friendship's dreaming, 

And how to share the common joys 
That leap to strength above life's seeming 

To where we call the bunch, "the boys." 

May eyes that smile and know no weeping 

Be yours thru all the days to come, 
And sorrow fall to one long sleeping, 

And pain remain forever dumb. 

But. boys, what is the use of talking, 

We meet to part, we part to meet 
For Life whichever way our walking,

We've bathed the bossie's tootsies, we've cleaned the rooster's ears, 

We've trimmed the turkey's wattles with antiseptic shears. 

With talcum all the guinea hens are beautiful and bright, 

And Dobbin's wreath of gleaming teeth we've burnished snowy white. 

With pungent sachet powder we've glorified the dog, 

And when we have the leisure we'll manicure the hog. 

We've done all in our power to have a barn de luxe; 

We've dipped the sheep in eau de rose; we've sterilized the ducks. 

The little chicks are daily fed on sanitated worms, 

The calves and colts are always boiled to keep them free from germs. 

And thoroughly to carry out our prophylactic plan, 

Next week we think we shall begin to wash the hired man.

How often we say, "Those were the happy days," when the memory of bygone 
times is brought to us, and how seldom do we realize that a few years hence we may 
look back upon today and find things of interest which do not appear of particular 
value in passing. Each year and each day History is made, and so, though perhaps 
we do not consider them as such just now, in time we shall see that our years at 
C. C. D. S. were not all devoted to dreary, uneventful hours of drudgery. 

We met for the first time as a class of expectant Freshmen in October, 1918. 
Although the course had been extended to four years, we did not lack in numbers. 
The World War was then at its height, so the majority of the class enlisted in the 
S. A. T. C, which was established at the College. Shall we ever forget those days! 

The "Battle of Ashland Boulevard" was duly fought and won; we celebrated 
Armistice Day in a fitting manner, led by our band, and just before Christmas we 
received the longed-for discharges and were once more "civilians." 

After the holidays, we discovered that nearly half of our members had dropped 
out. due to the disbanding of the S. A. T. C. and subsequent loss of Government 
assistance. However, those of us who were left went bravely on, assimilating as best 
we could the principles of Anatomy, Histology, Chemistry, and those other essentials 
in the curriculum of an embryo D.D.S. 

Last year we made the acquaintance of "Daddy" Watt, and his characteristic 
lectures and critical eye became familiar to all of us. We learned to respect his skill 
with pliers and knife, and woe to the unfortunate individual who presented for inspec- 
tion a "shanty-shaped" crown! Dr. Borland, with his forcible manner of expression, 
made us dance to the tune of "Heat, Cold, Pain, Touch." 

How well do we remember Dr. Jirka's quizzes on the intricacies of the Trigeminal 
Nerve! And who was it that informed Dr. Zoethout of the presence of starch in the 
saliva? But in spite of all our woes and mishaps, we succeeded in climbing to Junior 

The present term had a very auspicious opening, with the College in the hands 
of such men as Drs. Logan, Brophy, and Johnson. We feel that we are under the 
guidance of some of the best known and most capable men in the profession, and 
with our co-operation, they can make C. C. D. S. the best institution of its kind. 

We are now wearing the coveted white coats, and to most of us our troubles are 
just beginning. Patients that disappoint; plates that won't fit; foils that WILL be 
removable — all these things tend to make life miserable for us. Wonder if there is a 
Junior who hasn't had any "hard luck"? 

Now we aspire to Senior greatness, and next year we'll "don our dignity" and go 
into the last lap of the race. May it prove the best ever! 

M. 0. Petersen.

I want to be a Junior, and with the Juniors stand, 

With my foot upon an engine, and a mirror in my hand. 

I wouldn't be an emperor; I wouldn't be a king; 

I wouldn't be a president for all that life can bring; 

I wouldn't be an angel, for the angels have to sing. 

I'd rather be a Junior and never do a thing????

Ventral cavity contains two smaller cavities which are divided by a bone called 
the diaphragm. 

The ear is made up of the internal, external, and eternal ears. 
Bones of the leg are fibula, tibia, metatarsals and ulcers. 
In naming the joints: "Balls and eye socket joints." 


"Do you suppose the dentist would give me back that tooth he pulled. 

"Certainly, Susie, but what do you want with it?" 
"I want to put a piece of candy in it and see it ache." 

There are five classes of Juniors : 

1. Those who do the right thing without being told. 

2. Those who do the right thing when told once. 

3. Those who do the right thing when told twice. 

4. Those who do the right thing when kicked from behind. 

5. Those who will not do the right thing until someone goes along to show 
them how and stay to see that they do it.

Aunt Ethel sent George to the dentist. On his way over he met Tom. 
When George came home Aunt Ethel asked: 
"Well, George, were you brave at the dentist's?"

he did to you." 

George: "He pulled out two of Tommy's teeth." 


A Jew started a business in a Catholic neighborhood, and after a few days he 
discovered that something was affecting his trade. He decided that there was 
something which interfered with his business, so he determined to become a Catholic. 
He went to a Father and told him of his desires. After giving Goldberg some advice, 
etc., the Father sprinkled a little water on Goldberg's head and said: 

"Goldberg, you are now a Catholic." 

Goldberg's business grew immediately after this. But one Friday Murphy passed 
the Jew's home at dinner time and he saw a roast duck on the table. Murphy hurried 
to the Father's house and excitedly said: 

"Father, Goldberg is not a good Catholic. I passed his house and saw a roast 
goose on his dining table." 

The following Sunday the Father saw Goldberg and asked him for an explanation. 

"I'm a good Catholic, Father," explained the Jew. "I never had a duck or any 
meat on my table last Friday." 

"But Murphy said he saw a roast goose on your dining table last Friday." 

"A roast goose! Why that was a fish," exclaimed Goldberg. "Before I became a 
Catholic you dripped some water on my head and said, 'Goldberg, you're a Catholic' 
Well, before I killed that goose I took some water and poured it on the goose's head 
and I said, 'Goose, you're a fish.' "

Which is the best working class of all classes, 

Who receives the most knocks from the college professors, 

Who bring trouble and noise and woe, 

All the day long wherever they go? 

Who do their best when it has to be done. 

And never cease work till the victory's won? 

Who, in the conflict, stand for their right, 

And never let patients wait until night? 

Who, in the march of Learning's great mount, 

Lead the hosts far below and drink first at the fount 

Of knowledge? Are you dumb? Can't you guess? 

Why the famed Junior Class of the C. C. D. S.

(Written in the shade of the palm of the hand.) 

Where can a man buy a cap for his knee? 

Or a key for the lock of his hair? 
Can his eyes be called an academy, 

Because there are pupils there? 
In the crown of his head what jewels are set? 

Who crosses the bridge of his nose? 
Can he use, when shingling the roof of his mouth, 

The nails on the ends of his toes?

Tho our days and our labors are not yet o'er 

And strive we must yet to learn more 

To sound the immortal laud of our College, 

By increasing the Sophomore's knowledge 

For, tutored by faculty prudent and sage, 

Bring our efforts together to be writ on the page 

In the Book of Fame, as dentists wise, 

And cause confident world on us turn its eyes. 


Delving in depths of science and art 

Ne'er shall we forget that it is our part 

To observe the teachings and logic true 

That our esteemed professors convey to us do. 

To elevate our spirit, our souls to heal, 

And thru our deeds bring the bells to peal 

From shore to shore in praises untold 

Of Chicago Dental College, that such men did mold. 


So, strong willed Dr. Kendall in his chemistry class 

Has taught us to view life thru many a glass. 

Jolly Dr. Zoethout set our heart on a spark 

The three I's he said, will not make us a mark. 

Sure step Dr. Danielson to aid future renown 

Makes the titles and action of the vicious bugs known. 

Dear "Daddy" Watt, the chivalrous knight 

Helps us crown our ambition for a "bright shining light." 


Here we have sophomores who in future are bound 

With name and deed in fame to resound 

On extensive our list of prospects in view 

Are Ackerman and Abraham the "never worry" two. 

Andelman and Baygood, both agile of hand 

With wonders in art to their credit may lend. 

Here's Beynon and Bowling, in promptness twin 

Who, if absence was presence, gold medal would win. 


Behold Miss Burke our rival of Venus 
Her influence on Bay may hinder his genius. 
Canadian Cornwell, a precocious child, 
Of stature is small, of temperament mild. 
Merry boys like Collins, Campbell and Cayley 
Who wish that classes not in session were daily. 
Casserly adores lines that contours do hold 
Cohn statements does in anatomy make bold 


Page 137 



A battle with "bugs" did Carmichael win 

Curry his adipose in boxing could thin 

Now De Wesse with the dishes "wrestle" must yet 

Delling can't see who at dancing could fret 

"Dixie" Dikselis his plight thinks is sad 

Davitz we think is garrulous lad. 

Quiet chap is Ebert. Etu has found 

That in bevies of beauties does Chicago abound. 


Fillinger his diary full of interest keeps 
For inspiration at the portrait of his "Lady Love" peeps 
To Frysztak the bathing beach fascination affords 
While Figenbawm sees nothing save water and boards. 
"Gogo" Gogolinski his hair comb holds dear 
. "Patsy Molly" Geffert loss of poise need not fear 
Gregg vows his cognomen to forget no more 
To Griffin "Logan Square" is "elevated" lore. 


Hail for Miss Gustafson our "Class Mother" known 
To make "little boys" mind affairs of their own 
Goldberg, M.. Greenberg and Goldt as one man 
Stood, when S. Goldberg for "coin keeper" ran 
Newlywed Hague early home run puts forth, 
Demure "Canuck" Handelman after all is a sport 
Horrigan's romantic personality's adored 
That he might be an ambassador to Ireland, he's bored. 


Hoffman in Canada does in thoughts abide, 
Yes, we know that absence cannot hearts divide 
Herm claims to fall in love at first sight, 
"Sonny" Herman at times shows signs that he's bright 
Hirsch in prosthetics Dr. Hall may soon rival 
At Issak's perception of pneumatics we marvel. 
Kochanski at Marathon may run into fame 
Knitter deserts, after flattering a dame. 


Guess why Jakubski the Follies attract, 
Jaffe like a cavalier of old days can act. 
Kangas and Keip in movies could star 
Kloboucnik his wit wants to sound far. 
Kleiman during lectures shows seats would be best 
When equipped like bedsteads, for students to rest. 
"Turk" Lynch has a feeling that his pugilistic skill 
Leuty, Loeffler and Lebovitz with terror would fill. 


Loumons highly civilized, (asserts that he is.) 
Laken's and A. Miller's complaisance we'd miss. 
"Maggie" Madge is a little boy who yet has to grow 
J. P. Miller on the diamond the ball sure can throw. 
Melichor is a prodigy. Militz radiance sends 
From the top of his head when in courtesy he bends. 
To Mahns our "Big Six" matrimony is bliss 
We stutter in pronouncing Mistarz with Miss.

"Papa" McDonald with dominant air sent 

His summons to order, as Class President. 

Morrey a "wicked eye" casting was seen 

Altho he appears very sober of mien. 

Nicholls as Adonis in pictures could pose 

Noskin has, "Said it," won't repeat what he knows. 

Needleman with his wisdom will make dollars and cents. 

Oreskes in a slouch "Suffering Job" represents. 


Parlin and Pavlin must be of one kin. 

Taxam Pawelek could cow-punching prize win. 

Pinns in a Juvenile contest could enter 

Upon his innocent gaze admiration would center. 

We wonder if "aged" makes young Pesch tremble. 

Podwojski, would lose his celibacy if he'd gamble. 

Parker is a busy man, as one might 

Gathering science by day, selling "L" rides by night. 


Apothecary Randall in pharmaceutics perusing 
Found how to grow a moustache sans any drug using. 
Like a parson acts Russel, the debonair, 
Rose says his happiness nothing can mar. 
Proud little Robin his head carries high 
With Rabinovich, the erudite, we all try to vie. 
Sapoznik's we have two, this as difference we deem 
That M. is "Sapolio" and H. is "Scourene." 


Schlocker, as Treasurer, did employ bank gain. 
"Professor" Soldovnick spread his wisdom in vain. 
Sigtinhoist and Simon "technicians" will be 
Schuyler seems as if mourning for his "Annabell Lee." 
Stine is a "bright" laddie and sensible too. 
"To Sweeney" we tell what we can't put thru. 
Sprafka the indignant has amorous soul. 
Imagine "slim" Stahl in a matador's role. 


Sweetnam our sculptor, of art has a spark 

Excels in watch shining, in which he's a shark. 

Suliaman may high honors in India attain. 

Tibbs likes the name "Vivian" and perhaps "Mary Ann." 

Tripet is a wonder, answers, "Here" over there 

Men like Tyl and Wessel amongst us are rare. 

Zimmerman we hear in soda puts pep 

To make it "Buck and Zimmerman" has taken the step. 


Last is Zilvitis who with paternal wisdom quotes 
That the Sophomore shall succeed if he notes, 
The advice of instructors, the voice from within 

Tis the sole truth in this peroration stated 
Here in this book in 1921 dated. 

Anna Mistarz.

About ten minutes to one in the afternoon a numerous body of students is seated 
in their respective seats in the amphitheatre and each is discussing with his neighbor 
the lesson for that particular afternoon and the previous assignments. 

Here and there a heated discussion is heard among students of adjacent seats but 
as soon as the martyr scientist and physiologist, the young, slender, gray haired man, 
Dr. Zoethout enters the room immediately all discussion is discontinued and each 
student obtains his last chance in glancing at his note book. 

Then Dr. Zoethout procures out of his pocket the recitation book and a micro- 
scopic piece of paper on which, I presume, are his notes for the lecture and quiz. 
At this time all the students are somewhat impatient and curious as who will be called 
upon to recite. Meanwhile, Dr. Zoethout opens his recitation book and by chance 
calls upon the unexpected victim. 

Dr. Zoethout: "Mr. Cohen?" The reply from the gentleman is "Yes, sir." 

Dr. Zoethout: "And what is pneumothorax, Mr.Cohen?" 

Mr. Cohen hastily replies: "Why it is the condition when the lungs are col- 

Dr. Zoethout: "Yes, quite right, and how brought about?" 

Mr. Cohen hesitatingly answers: "Why, I understand by causing the lungs to-to- 

Dr. Zoethout with his muscles of expression contracted and with his lyric tone 
of voice shouted out : "Oh. no, no, gentleman, don't sidestep my question please. I 
want to know how pneumothorax is brought about." 

Mr. Cohen making a special effort and with the aid of his reasoning mechanism, 
finally obtained the correct answer. 

Dr. Zoethout being pleased with the information, says: "Quite right, quite right. 
That will be quite sufficient, Mr. Cohen." 

Now another gentleman is called upon, Mr. Abrams. 

Dr. Zoethout: "And, Mr. Abrams. what is digestion?" 

Mr. Abrams: "Why it is the eating of food." 

Dr. Zoethout, raising his slender voice, seemingly disappointed, says: "Oh, no, 
gentleman, this is not how we informed you, to be sure not," and continues, lowering 
his voice, "well, let us drop that question and talk about something else." 

Dr. Zoethout: "And. Mr. Abrams, how much food does an individual require 
in twenty-four hours to produce the necessary number of calories of energy?" 

Mr. Abrams evidently did not remember the exact number of grams, replied: 
"Why, Doctor, I believe as much as you can eat." Here whispers and laughter was 
heard from the gallery and other parts of the room in which Dr. Zoethout himself 

Finally, after the assembly had quieted down, the instructor, with a smile on his 
countenance, said: "To be sure it isn't so. gentlemen, for I can eat as much as to 
produce enough calories of energy that will last for forty-eight hours." This again 
stimulated the audience for a hearty laugh which it was quite difficult to quieten. 
But, being that Dr. Zoethout was anxious to continue his lecture, raised his voice to 
drown the roar: "Why gentlemen, let us have silence, shall we? All right." 

Now since perfect silence has been obtained he glanced at his watch and con- 
tinued: "Now we shall consider a few more little points." And so he continued 
as usual his explicit and logical, his brief and emphatic lecture until he reached the 
necessary conclusion. Again he glanced at the watch and noticing that the end of 
the hour was reached, he, with a low tone of his voice, says: "As our time has, 
however, expired, we shall continue the subject at our next session. Class excused." 

And so, a pleasurable and instructive hour is passed in one of the C. C. D. S.'s 


We learn from Dr. Zoethout that: 
Full many a man, both young and old, 

Has gone to his sarcophagus, 
By pouring water icy cold 

A-down his hot aesophagus.

Sophomores Bacteriology Class 

Our eminent bacteriologist, Dr. Danielson, conducting a quiz on immunity and 
susceptibility to diseases called upon Mr. M. Andleman to explain Dr. Ehrlich's side 
chain theory. Mr. Andleman was somewhat disappointed with the question but, 
however, with a little effort on his part he explained the above theory thoroly and 

Dr. Danielson being astonished at the very good recitation, especially on Dr. 
Ehrlich's theory, thought of advising Mr. Andleman not to overstudy for fear he 
might injure his vital centers. 

Mr. Andleman seemingly appreciated the advice, replied quite freely: "Oh, 
no, Doctor, my natural immunity is quite normal. 

Dr. Danielson being very much pleased with the humoristic answer discontinued 
the quiz and enjoyed a hearty laugh. 

THE. Old Family tooth bu^h" 


By J. L. W. 

I had studied my lecture notes over and over 

And backward and forward too. 
And I thot that I knew them from A to Z, 

And I thot that I knew what I'd do 
If Dr. Zoethout should call on me, 

Just let him try it, I said, 
And smiled to myself with a satisfied smirk, 

I should have wept instead.

I'll never forget the day of that quiz 

The Sophomores sat straight and prim 
But he mowed them down, row after row, 

The grim reaper had nothing on him. 
Then he glanced at his book and called my name 

Pertly I 'rose from my chair. 
"Fire away," thot I, "ask me any old thing, 

You'll find that I am all there." 

And he fired. At the very first question he asked. 

My heart within me stood still, 
I never had heard of the ghastly thing, 

Oh! 'twas a bitter pill. 
But bitterer yet was the next and the next 

Till I sank at last in despair 
And with trembling hands, I blindly grasped 

For the protective arms of my chair. 

And now when the day for a quiz comes around 

Meekly I take my place 
And the Sophomores file in one at a time 

With a grim look on each face. 
They've studied their lecture notes over and over 

And backward and forward too, 
For thev know 7 when a question comes their way 

That only plain facts will do.

With apologies to Kipling 

If you can keep your tools when those about you 

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you. 

If you can trust yourself when your professors doubt you 

But make allowance for their doubting too. 

If you can work and not grow tired by working 

Or being quizzed by your professors, answer straight. 

If you can get to school on time for early classes. 

Work hard all day and also study late; 

If you can make a crown and do not burn it. 

Or burning it, can start it all anew 

And do not set the atmosphere a-burning 

Or turn the air about you blue. 

If you can spend what seems to you a life-time 

In modeling a porcelain jacket crown 

Then after it is finished, break it 

And never even curse nor even frown ; 

If you can tell a "bacci" from a cocci 

And chase the wild spirilla to its lair 

If you can rattle off the foetal circulation 

In a manner that will make your classmates stare. 

If you know the products of digestion 

And are intimately acquainted with chyle 

If you know the ingredients of saliva 

And can tell why there's no enzyme in the bile. 

If you can give the why's and wherefore's of the liver 

Or the reason for the vaso motor nerve. 

If you can stand a quiz by Sud without a quiver 

And explain the respiratory curve. 

If you know the graphic formula for Phenol 

And of ethers and of esters and of fat. 

If you can wrestle for an hour with carbohydrates 

And force a polysaccharide to the mat. 

If you can do these things and a hundred thousand others 

And do them so that they are all well done. 

If you can fill each unforgiving minute 

With full sixty seconds worth of distance run. 

If you can rise up early in the morning 

And study long after all the rest have hit the hay. 

You needn't worry much about the finals 

And — which is more — you may be a Junior some day.

Class of 1924 

The class of 1924 comprises as heterogeneous a mass of students as ever graced 
this school. In addition to the great disparity in age and nationalities, we have 
students whose homes are thousands of miles away. The ages vary from 17 to 37. 
One of our boys comes from the far off isle of Cyprus; another comes from the 
Philippine Islands and still another from Cuba. We have a number from different 
slates, one coming from California, and two from the South. 

A considerable number are matured young men over twenty-one who have re- 
turned to school after an absence of many years. A few are married and have 
children. Others served nobly during the war. They all foresaw the wonderful 
future in dentistry and decided to make it their life's work, despite the severe financial 
strain on them. 

Like all its preceding classes, the class of 1924 possesses the same amount of 
energy, vitality and humor. All are imbued with an intense desire to foster a school 
spirit and patriotism. With this end in view, an exciting class election was held 
early in January in which the following class officers were elected: 

0. Quant, President; B. E. Stark, Vice-President; D. Blair, Secretary; W. Lowy, 
Treasurer; S. Sachs, Editor; D. N. Condit, Cartoonist; F. Beidka, Sergeant-at-Arms; 
J. Toth, Business Manager. In addition, Mr. G. R. McLaughlin was appointed as- 
sociate editor by the editor. 


Lerner, the taxi-cab kid, bravely fares forth each evening in his bright yellow 
flivver to rake in the shekels of. the down-trodden pedestrians who have occasion to 
patronize him. During the winter, Lerner fervently prayed for ceaseless snow and 
sleet so he could obtain more fares. He also added a prayer for the passage of the 
anti-parking bill which would result in a tremendous increase in his business. Lerner. 
who is married and the proud father of two boys, contends he not only earns enough 
out of his cab to pay his way through school, but sufficient surplus is left to defray 

his personal expenses.

The freshmen class is fortunate in possessing a student whose name serves to 
aid the boys in mastering their studies. We refer to A. Ramos, whose home is in 
the Philippine Islands. While racking our overtaxed brains in an effort to learn the 
origin and insertion of a number of muscles in the thigh, we would think of Ramos 
and thus instantly know that the gracilis and others had their origin in the ramus 
of the ischium, etc. 

I take great pleasure in introducing to you, Mr. "Frisco" Stearns, our versatile 
terpsichorean artist and champion "shimmier" of the school. Stearns maintains that 
his brand of "Frisco" is as good as any on the market and he needs no coadng to 
exhibit his ability to quiver and shiver. He did the "Frisco" at a dance recently and 
the ungrateful spectators threw pennies at him. This is a shameful reproach for our 
flexible contortionist and should be severely censured. Cheer up, Stearns! We may 
be able to book you with the Orpheum Circuit as a partner to Mabel Blondell, whose 
conception of the "Frisco" is on a par with yours.

Everyone is wondering who in thunder could have prevailed upon our dainty, 
dapper beau brummel, Arnstein, to shorten his sideburns. He no longer looks like 
James, the butler. Al loves the ladies and is loved by them, which explains why 
"cutey" likes to be original and discriminating in his appearance.

Slavin is another bright lad whose extremely youthful appearance belies his 
real age. Being "broke" one day, he induced Lerner to pay his fare home, which the 
latter did by paying half fare for the kid. The nickel-nurser evidently took young 
Slavin for a ten-year-old. 

Well, Beidka, now that you are sergeant-at-arms, have you ever thought about 
the best possible method of throwing Goldstein out of the class meetings if he should 
become too boisterous? You know, we have no derrick in the school. 

"Red" Redlich is a welcome addition to our large family. This bright young 
lad, who likes to imitate some of the vaudeville actors, is always happy and the first 
one to play a practical joke at the expense of his fellow students. 

The boys were indeed sorry to learn that "Signor" Portundo had left school. 
Our sleek and handsome Cuban knew nothing about prohibition, near-beer and blind 
pigs. "Port" used to tease us frequently by reminding us that Cuba was still wet and 
the cup that cheers could be obtained at a very reasonable price. 

When Polokoff, who is one of the brightest lads in the freshman class is deeply 
immersed in his studies, he is oblivious of his surroundings. Up in the issecting 
room while trying to learn the branches of the brachial plexus, "Polo" walked around 
the room as if in a trance, a thoughtful expression on his face and gazing straight 
ahead of him. Polokoff is the type of fellow who fears no criticism and has nis own 
ideas about hewing the path to success. 

Every student acquires the art of "let me take," "have you got," "gimme," "lend 
me," in the prosthetics laboratory. There isn't a fellow left who has his outfit intact 
at the end of a few weeks. Wax spatulas, particularly, have an uncanny way of vola- 
tilizing. Where do they go? 

"Judge" Christolodides thought so much of the school that he came all the way 
from Cyprus to be in our midst. "Christy" simply will not forsake his wing collar, 
which gives him the appearance of a judge. However, we can forgive him for that, 
but as for his parting his hair in the middle — never! Where did you get the habit. 
"Christy?" Are you trying to emulate Arnstein? 

* ♦ * • 

In one of the pictures taken up in the dissecting room, Reid looked just like a 
preacher. He held a Gray's anatomy with both hands and a solemn, pious expression 
on his face. Imagine Reid a preacher! haw! haw! 

Although Mitchell has the honor of being the second oldest student in the class, 
he acts as though he were twenty-five years younger. "Mitch" creates considerable 
amusement by his "witty" answers and the boys all sit up expectantly when he arises 
to recite. 

It just had to be Shippee's luck to become stricken with small pox. However, 
"Ship," you made us all get vaccinated so we can comfort ourselves on the fact that 
we are immune for at least five years.

To all whom it may concern: Be it known that hereafter Felix Archibald 
Loiselle, usually called Sam, wishes to be called Felix Archibald. He says that it 
sounds more like the name of a genius or of a celebrity. 



Duke Fitz Henry is the sport of the freshman class. With that bright pea green 
shirt and those light spats, he sure knocks the women cold. All he needs is a cane and 
a monocle and he would pass for an Englishman any day. 

Kid Knospe by a unanimous vote has been handed the title of humorist of the 
old 1924 class. His jokes are the newest and most original and taking it all in all he 
certainly is a clever fellow when it comes to slinging wit. 

Hoatson, the boy from the Michigan back country, was seen shaking a mean hip 
at the Dreamland De Luxe ball room a short time ago. 

The flowery language that DeKoven uses in his brilliant recitations in section 
one's chemistry lab. class sure takes the hand embroidered pair of spats. 

We think that Frank Leiner is wasting his time in taking up dentistry. We 
earnestly advise him to give it up and get a position as dancing instructor in one of 
the numerous cabarets and dance halls that are scattered through this city of bright 

(Red) Enck challenges the world to a game of either of the indoor sports, 
tiddly winks or pinochle. 

(Slim) Biedka, our watch dog, has got in the habit of staying to hear Dr. 
Johnson lecture to the Junior class. He must want to learn everything about dentistry 
in his first year. 

Hynous, Biedka and Granath will be of great help to the women they marry, 
with the experience that they have been getting in cleaning up the Psi house. 

Frame, how did it feel to have a perfect thirty-six fit in Leiner's usher uniform 
at Cohan's Grand? Leiner offers apologies for not having air holes in the trousers. 

L. Evans 

Success must not be confused with so-called success. There are so-called suc- 
cessful men who smite with one arm and feign to give with the other. A captain of 
industry working his employees on starvation wages and exploiting them in every 
way and giving a small fortune for the upkeep of a noble institution, is a good ex- 
ample of the so-called successful man. In reality it is hypocrisy in its ugliest form. 

Success is not measured by financial achievements nor by ostentatious charity. 
He who is conscientiously aware of his own success, and instinctively feels that he 
is a success, is truly a successful man. 

Success is the crowning laurels of a well spent life. The latter constitutes that 
life wherein an individual pursues an ideal. When that ideal is reached there must 
be a striving for another ideal, for idealism is infinite.

How Lerner Earns His Way Through School 




He packed his rubber collar, his socks and B.V.D.'s. 

And was wafted on the wings of Fate, to the school of double C's. 

He enrolled to study Dentistry, that his future might be easy 

When he'd finally hang his shingle out and search for "Gold so Fleecy. 

I— (The Frosh) 

His mien is rather bashful, he tries to learn to study. 

In Lab. he eats of plaster, then feeds it to his buddy. 

He dabbles with Biology, Histology and Chem., 

And learns his own Anatomy, with English, too, pro tern. 

But ever he is yearning as the daily worries pass 

Of the day to come when he'll be one, of the favored "upper class." 

He suffers many jibes, indeed, his pride is sadly shocked, 

By Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, too, this Freshman's way is blocked. 

II— (A Soph.) 

The first year's work at last is done, he's licensed now to scoff 

At the new-mown Freshman, rank and green — He's now a cocky "Soph." 

On crown and bridge he spends his time, with care his work is fraught, 

As supervised and criticised by keen-eyed "Daddy" Watt. 

Thrice Doctor Kendall still directs and guides his shaky hand — 

By Jirka and Doc Borland, too, the "Ship of Stiff" is manned. 

Despite his studies tho', the Soph, still conscious of his power, 

Looks forward to his Junior year, as a bud looks to a shower. 

Ill— (A Junior) 

Two steps have been traversed by now, the lad is quite advanced — 

He gazes back upon the Soph with cynosure askance. 

A Knight of the Whirring Wheel is he, a man to be revered 

As he stands by his chair on the Clinic floor, midst the demonstrators feared. 

But still he must plug other things than teeth, his studious days are not o'er. 

And there's still a great step to be taken as yet, before leaving all books and their lore. 

And his eyes are turned forward with covetous glance, to the Senior whose place is 

And he longs for the day when he, too, will appear to the lower classman as a dream. 

IV — (And a Senior) 

At last his dream has been realized, he's one of the Senior's enthralled. 
And he calmly dispenses advice to the profs., regardless of whether he's called. 
As for Juniors and Sophs, he now laughs with disdain, at their pitiful struggle for fame. 
The poor Frosh he may patronize now and again, as a doormat whose bristles we maim. 
He looks back on the years of his struggles and trials and is grateful his goal is at hand. 
Tho' this year is his last, 'tis a finishing touch just before he goes forth through the land 
As an aid to mankind, a corrector of ills, one who makes the world better for all — 
Just a Dentist, indeed, but a Man, just the same, who has answered a Wonderful Call!

A dapper young chap named O'CONNELL called on his best girl one night. 
The fair one's name was Kitty. 

"Well, Kitty, let's go to the movies and see a swell CHRISTIE comedy. It's 
playing at the MITCHELL Theatre," said our hero. 

"All right," she assented. 

After the show they hiked up to a chop house. 

"Well, what'll you have?" asked O'Connell. 

"Oh, I'm not very hungry tonight. I'll have some fried PIKE and a 1-OAF of 
rye bread." 

"Don't be silly! Here's the menu. REID it and select something more de- 

"I'll be Damond if I do! I'll order as I please." 

"Gimme a PENN and some ENCK, will yuh?" 

"What for?" 

"I just reminded myself that I owe $24 for a pair of shoes I bought at Cutler 
Bros. I want to send them a check." 

"Ouch, my TOTH!" 

"What's the matter?" 

"This fish is full of BONA." 

"You sure did pull a BONAR, attracting the attention of all the people." 

"Say, quit PE-KON-EN on me. will you? I'll act as I please." 

"You think you will." 

"How about that coat trimmed with MARTIN fur that you promised to buy me 
this week?" 

"Say, how do you get that way? What is this, a FRAMEup?" 

"Say, BOW-YER gettin' too rough to suit me. I'm off o' you for life. I'm going 
out with a regular guy Saturday night." 

"Who with?" 

"I'm going out WIDMEYER." 

"What, that bozo who always wears a BROWN suit? I'll knock him cold and 

"Say, he's no lowbrow like you. He's got brains. He's interested in ART and 

"Well, for a KWARTA, I'd tie him up in a couple of SACHS and dump him 
in the lake." 

"If you buy me a DIAMOND ring, I won't go out with him." 

"Say, you're gettin' to be as SHARF as SOLOMON. Nothin' doin'." 

"All right. Oh, waiter, bring me some SCHNEIDER'S catsup and some 
GORDON gin, extra dry." 

"Don't let the prohibition agent see you. Say, kid, what do you say we get 
married tomorrow? I'll be a good husband. I won't be home much." 

"Now you're talkin'! I'll call up mother and ASHER to live with us. She will 
be our SHAPIRO-n." 

"What! Say, I'll put her in the basement and let her watch the gas MEDER. 
Ill LERNER something." 

"Fine grammar you're using." 

"I'll make her clean all the POTTS and pans." 

"You think you're as hard as GRANATH, don't you?" 

"For EVANS sake, shut up for a minute!" 

"Well, quit talking about my maw that way. You know you wouldn't dare

"I wouldn't, huh? Just you wait and see. I've been SLAVIN away for four 
years. Now I got enough Jack to be married. Let's go. But first we've got to have 
some REDLICH-er and some beer in a nice big GOLD-STEIN. I know a place on 
CLARK street where we can get some." 

"No, better LEAVITT alone. You always drink a large QUANT-ily of it and- -get 
slewed to the gills." 

"Well, WILMOTH-er make some home brew for us?" 

"I'll see that she does." 

And thus ended the romance of Kid O'Connell, the famous Mum pool shark.

Senior — Huh ! 

If you can learn equations when everybody 

Is making noise, and talking 'round the house. 
And when you've said distinctly you can't study 

At all, unless they are quiet as a mouse, 
If you DO concentrate upon your chemistry, 

And learn it well and say it o'er and o'er; 
And study so your head beats like a hammer 

Then — you get a Mark in Chemistry, Nothing more.

A group of energetic Freshmen got together shortly before Christmas and 
organized a basket ball team. The Seniors heard of our plans and promptly chal- 
lenged us to a game, but when the date of the contest arrived, the Senior team was a 
decidedly minus quantity and the game was called off. Then the Juniors agreed to 
play us but we were unable to get a "gym" in the neighborhood and another promis- 
ing contest was counted out. Next in order came the Sophomores, but here again 
Dame Fortune intervened and consequently another contest was forced to hang fire. 

The Freshmen were undaunted, however, and under the direction of McLaughlin, 
who had originated the idea of a basket ball team and who had later been appointed 
to manage such affairs, held a spirited practice at the West Side "Y." No less than 
27 spirited candidates answered the first call and from these a squad of promising 
yearlings was picked. Our illustrious contemporary, Illinois College of Dentistry, 
was booked, and we played it after having had one practice session. 

It was a wild orgy of dribbling, passing, and intermittent flings at the basket, 
this first game of ours. We were outweighed about 30 pounds to the man and were 
forced to bump up against a well organized quintet of huskies who had already half 
of their schedule behind them. Needless to say, the green team lost. Our boys were 
submerged to the tune of 33 to 19. Potts, at forward, and McLaughlin at center, 
were the big scorers for our team, while the floor work of Enck and Lowy was some- 
thing pretty to witness. The lads made a very peppery appearance for their first 
combat and were unable to score more heavily, merely because it was the first time 
they had played together. 

Our second game, with the West Side "Y" team, was a victory for us by a score 
of 19 to 13. Potts, Enck, and McLaughlin did the scoring, while Lowy, Stryker, 
and Harr kept down the score of our opponents by their bang-up defensive tactics. 

Feeling rather cocky after this victory we arranged for a double bill at the 
Jefferson Park M. E. Church and emerged from the fray with a percentage of .500, 
one victory and one defeat being acquired during the evening. 

In the first game we trimmed the U. of I. College of Pharmacy, 22 to 16. Enck 
found his eye in this game, ringing up five field goals. McLaughlin with four and 
Potts with two trailed him closely. This game was fast and furious in the last quarter, 
the Pharmacists rolling up 12 points while we were garnering an even 10. 

Page 160 

1 9 2 1 


The second half of the twin bill was the most closely contested on our schedule. 
We were nosed out by the South Side Harps in the final minute of play, finding 
C. C. D. S. on the smaller end of a 19-17 score after the final whistle. At half time 
we were leading, 14 to 7, but the strain of two games began to tell on the boys in 
the third quarter and we were forced to slow up. Our lead of the first half and the 
mustard plaster proclivities of our guards made the game a bitter struggle, however. 
Up until the final whistle McLaughlin located the hoop no less than 6 times in this 
contest, while Lowy and Potts were responsible for the rest of our points. The 
Yearlings were quite discouraged at losing this last game but Old Man Fatigue can 
be held responsible for the defeat. It was only the freshness of their opponents, 
coupled with machine-like team work, which caused the "Frosh" to emerge from 
the struggle on the small end of the score. 

The season was rather a tame one for the Freshmen team, taking everything into 
consideration, but it was a pronounced step for athletics in the school. Inability to 
secure a "gym" was the main reason for our curtailed schedule. We had plenty of 
exceptional basket ball timber but could get no practice whatever because there was no 
place in which to practice. 

The personnel of the squad included: Enck, Potts, Boyd, and Paule, forwards; 
McLaughlin and Harr, centers; Lowy, Stryker, Schneider and Dillon, guards. 

"Red" Enck was perhaps the most valuable all-around man on the team, while 
"Jerry" McLaughlin was our biggest scorer. "Peewee" Potts was also a wizard at 
compiling baskets and "Deacon" Lowy, "Stand-Pat" Stryker and "Ironsides" Schneider 
managed to make life miserable for our opposing forwards. Harr, Boyd, Paule, and 
Dillon were also up and at 'em at all times, but were not able to be with the squad at 
all the games. 

Better luck next year. We've got a start and from now on, Watch Our Step!

The kid's uncle, Dr. E. Z. Cowchauffeur, from Rustic City, was a very successful 
Dentist. In his six short years of practice he had accumulated sufficient currency, 
confidence, and congratulations to be adjudged one of the dominant factors in the 
business and social life of Rustic City. And Uncle Ezra had advised the Kid to take 
up Dentistry. Of course, the folks themselves were sure that his destiny in Dentistry 
must have been practically prophesied when Uncle Ezra advised him to follow in 
his own illustrious footsteps. The boy didn't seem to be taking any interest in 
farming anyhow, unless it was in the Dental aspect of that terrestrial avocation, as 
his Dad proudly pointed out. Why, hadn't the lad been able to judge the age of all 
the live stock on the place, from the pot-bellied pride of the pig sty to the egg-laying 
wonder of the Caster Coops, merely by a cursory inspection of the teeth of said 
quadrupeds and bipeds? What stronger sign did Dad Caster need to convince him 
that Anthony was predestined for Orthodontia? 

And so it came to pass that Anthony, amalgamating his two rubber collars, the 
store suit he had purchased with much pride from the Dress & Drawback Mail Order 
House, his five best neckties, and the three pennants he had acquired by saving coffee 
coupons at Berry's Emporium and General Store, as well as his tooth brush, which 
might serve as an embryonal insignia of his profession-to-be, set forth on a sunny 
fall morning for the Chicago College of Dentistry. 

Anthony Caster was a bright lad and adapted himself quickly to his new environ- 
ment, stepping gracefully out of his cloak of rusticity as a mantle of snow fades from 
the chasteness of the city streets at the first suggestion of the Sun's Specific Heat. 

Our Hero found his way to the portals of his future home by the aid of six 
traffic cops, several cold-blooded transfer dispensers of the Chicago Surface Lines and 
finally with the help of an avaricious and decidedly mercenary taxi-driver. 

Entering the portals and subsequently the elevator of the imposing institution, 
he arose, with John and misgivings, to the office of the Registrar. At once he was 
reminded of "The Girl Back Home," when he was greeted by the amiable and regular- 
fellow salutation of the delightful guardian of the Registrar, whom he learned later 
was none other than the charming Miss Miller. 

He watched Mr. Estabrook pen (this is not an advertisement I his family history 
in brief, his favorite authors, most commonly used hair tonic, and incidentally, his 
High School Credentials, before being relegated to the Library. Here he was given 
his first view of the methods of his future contemporaries, as put into practice, when 
he witnessed his first Extraction. The operation was performed on Anthony himself 
and the ailing bit of adult flaccoid scale must have had an exceedingly long root as 
Our Hero experienced a distinct shock in the region of his pocketbook. 

After safely adjusting his first financial difficulty, the Kid set out to find a room 
in the neighborhood, whereat he might daily park his tonsils beside the mahogany and 
indulge in his somnambulistic calisthenics. The lad then squared himself away for 
action as a full-fledged, grass-green, unsophisticated Freshman dentist. 

He was first initiated into the mysteries of Prosthetics. He spent many hours in 
the laboratory in which his future was to be modeled, partaking of numerous portions 
of Plaster Porridge, watching his stock of instruments decrease day by day and striv- 
ing vainly to master the art of soldering, as applied to plates and pesky little dew-dads, 
which were much more obstinate to properly manipulate than had been any calf which 
Anthony had ever manhandled into assimilating nourishment of lacteal proclivities. 
He confessed secretly, in his first letter home, that his agile oblongata was beginning 
lo attain a faint idea that a Dentist was more important than a barber or a black-smith, 
that the course was nothing at all like the correspondence course in the Art of Detect- 
ing, which he had taken just after being released from High School. He also stated 
that Prosthetics, his main practical study, was some swell course, inasmuch as it fitted 
a man for plastering, bricklaying and tinning, as well as for Dentistry.

By taking Biology and Histology, the pride of the Caster family was able to 
increase his vocabulary considerably. He learned parlor names for all the insects 
and animals he had ever heard of, from the lowly angleworm to the acrobatic amphi- 
bians. Indeed, it was not long before the brilliantly progressing young hopeful was 
able to classify every Student, Instructor, Fraternity, Publication and Breakfast Food, 
simplv from having had a course in Biology. Histology, too, afforded the young 
genius with countless opportunities of acquiring much Inside Information. He was 
able to impart confidentially, to the upper classmen, at the end of the first semester, 
with the sophisticated air of One Who Has Been Through It All, that that Dr. Suddarth 
"sure knew his stuff all right." 

From association with Dr. Kendall, after the Daily Morning Marathon, up, up, 
and still upward, to the amphitheatre, young Mr. Caster was surprised to find that 
Chemistry was, indeed, a practical, interesting and most useful subject and not as he 
had supposed, merely an Antidote for Laziness, as said disease exists in most indi- 
viduals of scholastic tendencies. By attending the class in Physics, under the juris- 
diction of Dr. Kendall, the Pride of the Rustic City acquired a knowledge of Energy, 
particularly as applied to staying awake toward the close of the afternoon. He 
found, too, much to his surprise, that Chemistry and Physics alike were of considerable 
importance to the embryo exodontist and that Dr. Kendall, as he taught them, could 
clothe a practically barren topic in language which made it appear attractive, easy to 
understand, and even interesting to listen to. 

The reputation of young Anthony, as one of the Town's Best Whittlers was at 
stake when he was enrolled in the Operative class and his knowledge of the blade, 
much to his chagrin, was but as an atom compared to a mass when it came to mastering 
the fine principles of carving, as elucidated by Dr. Kolar. He was surprised to learn 
'ihat each tooth in the mouth, or rather, as he learned to say it later, in the Oral Cavity, 
had any number of surfaces, angles, cusps and ailments of which he had never 
dreamed. As he took a blank piece of steel and modeled therefrom a finished 
instrument to be used in his practical work, so Dr. Kolar took his brain and molded 
its various convolutions to conform with the principles of Operative Technique. His 
Mechanical Drawing, too, with its high lights, low lights, etc., brought out more 
clearly points regarding the teeth which he was astounded to learn. And still he was 
only a gawky Freshman. 

Anatomy, to the Pride of Rustic City, was simply a revelation. He was stupefied 
to know that his very body was a large Machine composed of many smaller machine- 
like organs, functioning as a beautiful unit, if properly manipulated. Of course, it 
was somewhat of a shock to Tony when he first observed the specimens upon which 
he was to work, all dolled up for the convenience of the Freshman Knowledge-Seekers. 
Later on, however, he became so used to hob-nobbing with the cadavers that he could 
dissect with one hand and join in the Pre-Instructor chorus with the other. 

Our Hero's social life was, of course, of less importance than his school life but 
ever and anon he was wont to step out with the boys to the various Palaces of Mirth, 
where the youths indulged in queer orgies of Hugging set to Music, as the modern 
Terpsichorean Tripping or Dances, might be termed. He became an intermittent at- 
tendant at seances of Vaudevillians, Ham Actors, etc., which also served to lighten his 
Leisure Hours. 

Of course, young Mr. Caster had to join a fraternity and consequently he was 
initiated into the Lambda Lambda Lots. At said initiation the Lad's Gluteus Maxi- 
mus was occluded frequently with the business end of a barrel stave and he found 
himself a full-fledged Freshman, all set to enter the Sophomore class. 

There remained for Young Mr. Caster merely the formality of gathering his 
hard-earned credits together, packing his various articles of wearing apparel and 
setting forth for Rustic City, there to vacation until the following fall.

Every student is visibly impressed by the sound logic disseminated by Dr. 
Kendall. By compelling us to turn on the "ultra-violet rays," our sluggish brains 
are commencing to grasp things quicker. Dr. Kendall's wise and opportune remarks 
are always welcome and superinduce introspection on the part of most of us, with 
the result that we know ourselves better; our faults, trials and tribulations. It is 
a pleasure, as well as a privilege, to hear the truths so cleverly expounded by our 
master chemist. 

"Turn on the Violet Rays, my boys, 

The Ultra Violet Rays. 
Lest ye forget that which ye know, 

Turn on the Violet Rays. 

"Thou may'st be tired and weary of books, 

Thou may'st be wandering away, 
But please don't forget before exams, 

To turn on the Violet Ray." TOTH.

A group of Freshmen were telling stories in the basement. Among the best, the 
following smote the auricular appendages of the writer as the one most worthy of 
commendation : 

An up-stage, rather high-browish school teacher was spending her summer vaca- 
tion on the farm. She noticed several calves gamboling gayly in the pasture, and 
desirous of creating an impression of sophisticated intelligence, the sweet young 
thing elocuted coyly, for the benefit of the farmer: "Oh, look at the pretty cowlets." 

Whereupon, there came back from the center of a hairy brush, which well con- 
cealed his facial anatomy, the calm reply: "You be mistaken, madam, them ain't 
cowlets — them's bullets!" 

Now the writer does not seek to frivol away any more of the reader's time, but 
he naturally wonders if the old farmer's scheme of naming might not well be applied 
to the fairer members of our institution. Briefly then, why would it not be possible 
that the female students, in a Dental College, especially the "chickens," as those of 
comely appearance are known, to be designated as Pullets? 


It might be termed the utmost in laziness, but in our estimation a man who sits 
around all day waiting for the wind to blow the egg off his chin, might better be termed 
a member of the leisure class. 

"Psychopathically speaking," observes one of our hard-boiled friends, "any bird 
that pulls a stunt like that, must be cracked. Furthermore, the fact that he might 
desire that the hen-fruit be eradicated from his physiognomy, sounds plausible enough. 
But to think for one minute of said breakfastly residue being transported on the 
wings of the wind — Oh, no. and a couple of not nots — that's carrying the yoke too far!" 


It seems that yeast has been recommended as a great purifier of the blood and that 
throughout the neighborhod of C. C. D. S. the students have been indulging, more or 
less intermittently, in yeast eating as both a popular indoor and outdoor sport. 
When asked for his opinion of yeast as an "Enzyme Encourager," Doctor B. I. Cuspid 
announced the following for publication: 

"Yeast has its uses, no doubt, but it is almost ludicrous to think of its being used 
as a purifier of the blood. Really, that takes the Cake. 'Tis true that quite a few 
Loafers hereabouts are strongly addicted to its use, but none of our Well-Bred 
students will spend their money on such a foolish remedy. They Knead the Dough 
too badly and haven't Crust enough to think that each and every one who uses yeast 
regularly is bound to Rise. I know of students who claim to be the very Flour of 
humanity who often get a Bun on and straightway purchase a Cake of Fleischman's, 
that they may pacify their colons and semi-colons for a certain period of time. Of 
such, however, the less said the better. They belong in the bread-box with the rest 
of the crumbs." 

There you have an eminent Plow-Jockey's opinion of yeast. He's a wise- 
cracker, too, so we would join with him in saying, "Down with yeast." 

"jerry" Mclaughlin, 
some class! 

Oh, the meanness of a Junior when he's mean; 
Oh, the leanness of a Senior when he's lean. 
And "sophisticness" of Sophomores serene. 
But the upper classman leanest, 

Meanest or between, serenest, 

Are not in it with the greenness 
Of a rank, uncultured Freshman, when he's green.

'Twas in a mixed class in Anatomy that the Professor put a question to one of the 
few co-eds in the class. 

"Miss Concieve, will vou please describe the oblongata to the class?" 

Whereupon the flustered co-ed, who in her consternation, hastily parking her gum 
posteriorly to her epiglottis, replied: 

"Really, Doctor, I can't do that, you see, I wear the circular kind." 


He paced the Prussian force in Paris; he put the French fleet on the sea. 
He had the Japanese defeated, and made a war for you and me. 
He put the English in the channel, and brought the Russian army south, 
And yet to save his life he couldn't put a gold foil into a mouth. 


He slipped upon the icy walk, 
And made a convolution, 

Then hit the pavement with an "Awk" ! 
And broke his resolution! 

Several Seniors were congregated around the fountain in the basement trying to 
elbow their way through a crowd of thirsty yearlings, that they might dampen their 
individual palates, when one spoke up: "Why do all the Freshies hang around the 
fountain so much, anyhow?" 

"Why," replied another Senior, "I suppose it's because all green things need a 
lot of water." 


This time it happened to be a Sophomore and not the proverbial Freshman, who 
was tendered the chiding. He tried to pull some "gold coast" stuff on the proprietor 
of our Basement Beanery. 

He breezed into the sandwich salon like a gust of March wind and inquired 
"musical-comedycally," "What say, brother, do you serve lobsters here?" 

And the Wienerwurst Watchman, with never a tear in his voice, responded, "Oh, 
yes, indeed, we serve everyone. Just have a seat and we'll attend to you presently!" 

A bright yearling was holding discourse with our class Socrates, Philomethean 
Polokoff. It ended up with Polly enquiring, "Well, what makes you think, Ramos, 
that your uncle was so far sighted, anyhow?" 

Whereupon the Pride of the Philippines rejoined subtly, "Because, he had a 
fire extinguisher put into his coffin." 

"I have heard," mused the bird fancier, "of a parrot talking and singing and I 
once heard a parrot swear, but I never before have seen a Polokoff (polly cough). 

It happened up in Anatomy laboratory. The instructor was asking various 
questions of the Freshmen, just to get an idea as to their general knowledge of the 
human body. 

"And who can tell why a person gets water on the brain?" he inquired. 

"Why, I s'pose it's because he sometimes has a crick in the neck," responded 
i future Sophomore, to the accompaniment of sundry groans. 

"I see that they are not sending any more mail to Washington," orated Redlich 
who happened to be reading the daily paper. 

"And why not?" piped up Spickerman. 

"Because he's dead," replied the foxy fisherman.

To a certain conductor named Vane, 
Once a passenger crab did complain: 

"Say, can't you go faster?" 

He replied, but not sassed her, 
"Sure, / can, but must stick with the train!" 


It was just a word battle at that, but it waxed quite warm and caustic and finally 
brick bouquets began flying through the air. 

"You're so darned low you could stand on the top step of a step ladder and look 
a cockroach in the eye," hurled one of the debaters, directly into the teeth of his 
conversational adversary. 

Whereupon the other smiled cynically and came forth with the following verbal 
barrage, completely submerging his opponent: 

"Say," he barked, "if you were as low in stature as you are in character, you 
could climb into a pair of stilts, put on a high silk hat and walk safely under a duck's 
belly, without bending your knees!" 


"The party wire," mused Joe Blow, "is another reason why, like they say, woman's 
work is never done." 

"Mr. Allen," asked the teacher of Dental Rhetoric, "what is poetry?" 

"Poetry is something a man writes just before he starves to death," was the reply. 


■Dr. Kendall had just been lecturing on the advantages and disadvantages of various 
laxatives and cathartics. He particularly recommended sulphur as a pleasant, satis- 
factory laxative and having impressed his idea on the class, he wished to see if the 
students had grasped his idea. With this thought in mind he inquired. "Mitchell, 
what would you take if your system felt wrong?" 

Whereupon the Pride of Prosthetics replied quickly: 

"Why, I think I'd swallow a bottle of ink." 

Dr. Kendall: "For Heaven's sake, why ink?" 

Mitchell: "Because it would make me feel write!" 

A near approach to perpetual motion: Polokoff assimilating anatomy.

Dr. Holcomb (pointing to foramen in transverse process of cervical vertebrae) :

3nter=Jfratermtp Council 

0i tfje Chicago College of Bental i&urgerp 

When the management of our college was put into the hands of Doctors Brophy, 
Logan, and Johnson at the beginning of the present school year, everyone realized 
that a transformation was to be enacted. With Dr. W. H. G. Logan as Dean of the 
Faculty, it was soon further realized that everyone connected with the school was 
henceforth to be imbued with a higher sense of duty, and an ambition to contribute 
his mite toward placing the Chicago College of Dental Surgery in its rightful place 
in the Dental World. All were affected by the business, as well as professional, 
personality of Dean Logan, and a greater appreciation of the benefits of organization 
was brought about by this influence. 

It was because of these happenings that the idea and desire of an Inter-Fraternity 
Council at the college finally became a reality, when early this calendar year a 
meeting was called to consider the proposition. A satisfying supper was served in 
the college lunch room on the evening of January 17, 1921, at which two representa- 
tives from each of six school fraternal organizations were present. Dr. Johnson, 
Dean of Students, was present, and outlined the benefits and pitfalls that such a 
council as was contemplated, was likely to encounter. Great encouragement in the 
affair was given the organization committee by the Student Dean, whose great heart 
is always with the "boys." We were indeed fortunate to have him consent to be 
faculty advisor of the council. 

The organization committee, went to work immediately after the supper, elected 
G. E. Orsech and E. E. Marion as joint chairmen, and proceeded to discuss ways and 
means for the culmination of a practical organization. The goodfellowship displayed 
was gratifying, and ideas were forthcoming in rapid succession, compelling Mr. C. E. 
Eichman, who was duly elected as secretary, to work rapidly and diligently. Each 
man present had something to present, and it is needless to say that a great deal of 
work was accomplished during that first evening. 

The organization contemplated was to be called the Inter-Fraternity Council of 
the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. The purpose incorporated in the minutes of 
the organization committee, later to be inserted into the Constitution of the Council, 
is "to promote the fellowship and co-operation between the member organizations, 
for their mutual benefit and the welfare of the Student Body and Institution of the 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery." The member organizations finally making up 
the organization committee were represented at the meetings as follows: G. E. 
Orsech, Grand Master, Delta Sigma Delta; R. Houghtaylen, Worthy Master, Delta 
Sigma Delta; E. E. Marion, Grand Master, Xi Psi Phi; F. L. Stoddard, Secretary, 
XI Psi Phi; E. A. Rosenberg, Grand Master, Alpha Zeta Gamma; H. Feuerlicht, 
Worthy Master, Alpha Zeta Gamma; R. H. Morton, Grand Master, Psi Omega; 
C. E. Eichman, Executive Board, Psi Omega; M. J. Oren, President, The Trowelers; 
F. Z. Radell, Secretary, The Trowelers. 

As was to be expected numerous and frequent obstacles came before the meetings ; 
but due to the fellowship prevailing, those present endeavored to their best ability 
to promote and encourage harmony. The first meeting was adjourned and no meeting 
was called until after the termination of the mid-year examinations. The second 
meeting of the organization committee reconvened on Sunday, February 13, at the 
Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity House. It is proposed to vary the place of meeting 
so that no organization will bear the entire responsibility of supplying a meeting 

I()2 I 

Page 173 


The second meeting progressed very much the same as the first, with the addition 
of more discussions, and the accomplishment of much detail. The representatives 
present voted to consider the Council composed of the following member organiza- 
tions: Xi Psi Phi, Psi Omega, Delta Sigma Delta, and Alpha Zeta Gamma, the repre- 
sentatives of which were to again convene at the Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity House 
on March 3, the regular meeting date of the Council being the first Thursday of every 
month. At the next meeting the Trowelers, a Masonic organization, was voted into 
honorary membership. At this meeting detail was disposed of as rapidly as possible, 
and the meeting closed in good order, with the fellowship originally displayed, con- 
tinuing in satisfying proportions. 

The final meeting of the organization committee was held at the Xi Psi Phi 
Fraternity House on the evening of March 10, and final polishing of the plans and 
organization of the ultimate permanent council was satisfactorily disposed of. Detail 
was reviewed, plans completed, and the Council left in the hands of the presiding 
officers of the member organizations until the first official meeting of the permanent 
Inter-Fraternity Council. All the work, present and future, was not attended to by 
the organization committee. Extreme detail was left for disposal by the permanent 
council at its regular meetings. Only such work was accomplished by the original 
committee as was deemed necessary to complete preliminary organization, and to turn 
over to the ultimate council a practical, workable, and concrete organization, impreg- 
nated with the spirit in which this thought was conceived, and laden with the idea of 
service, not merely to the individual member organizations, but to each and every 
student in our great Alma Mater. — Transcribed from minutes of the Organization

Cfte Erotoel Club 

Some years ago, Dr. Chas. Freeman, of the Dental School at the Northwestern 
University, brought together a number of members of the Masonic Fraternity who 
were then attending the Dental School, and organized the first Trowel Club. This 
organization consisted of students and members of the faculty who were Masons, 
and was purely and simply a dental association. The idea spread quickly and a 
second chapter was organized at our college, with the same requirements of member- 
ship. Ritual was adopted, constitution, by-laws, etc., drawn up, and after other 
chapters in this vicinity were organized, it was evident that the Trowel Club idea was 
due to stay. 

The first years at- Chicago College of Dental Surgery were difficult due to a 
lack of eligible students, but due to efforts of our dear friend and counselor, Dr. P. G. 
Puterbaugh, who did more than anyone else in keeping the interest of the club alive, 
the trying times were passed, and the club has been in good spirit ever since. 

The first year of which good records are had, Dr. 0. A. Helmar officiated as 
President, and Dr. L. N. Roubert, who is now on our faculty, was Secretary of the 
order. Through the activity of these two men principally, was an exceptionally 
prosperous year passed, and the club put on its feet. Numerous clinics were held 
throughout the year which were of great value to our members. The final event, a 
banquet at the Hotel LaSalle, topped off the successful year. Dr. Ralph Wheeler, Past 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of A. F. & A. M. of Illinois, was our honored guest, 
many other speakers also addressing us. 

The following year was of unusual success, and a great number of clinics were 
given by members of the faculty, Doctors F. E. Roach, Puterbaugh, Lee, Grisamore 
and others delivering exceedingly interesting talks. We were frequently visited by 
members of our sister chapter, Northwestern Trowel Club, and visits to them were 
enjoyed immensely. Due to the activity of the Army during this year, the sequence 
of meetings was temporarily broken, but the final event of the year was of high im- 
portance. The Hotel LaSalle was again chosen, and S. J. Duncan-Clark, Associate 
Editor of the Chicago Evening Post, who talked on the League of Nations, and Dr. 
T. A. Broadbent. then of the State Board of Dental Examiners, both gave interesting 
talks. As before, many of the faculty members were present, Dr. Puterbaugh acting 
as toastmaster of the evening. This year also contained the annual dance which this 
year was run in conjunction with Northwestern chapter. Dr. Geo. Cappell acted as 
President this year, and it was principally through his efforts that so successful a 
year was experienced. 

The third year was fraught with difficulties brought about by the war, and the 
ranks were greatly diminished through want of eligible students. The coal-saving 
order of that year cancelled meetings, and it was not until long after the holidays 
that we resumed our clinics and good times. Suppers in the college lunch room 
were held at various times, and clinics by Drs. Smeltzer, now deceased, Roubert, 
Roach, Grisamore, and others, made what little time we had fly twofold. Among 
other events, such as the dance at Garfield Park Refectory, etc., was the annual dinner 
which had been arranged by the committee to be held at the Great Northern Hotel, 
but owing to the waiters' strike, service could not be had, and dinner had to be 
cancelled, due to the duration of that strike. Dr. John Dill Robertson, Health Com- 
missioner of the City of Chicago, and Dr. W. H. G. Logan, our present Dean, were

The administration of the past year has been especially active, and M. J. Oren, 
who was elected president for this year, has been ably assisted by F. Z. Radell, Ed 
Rus, and W. N. Jackson, who have held the office of Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice- 
President, respectively, for the past two years. Our clinics continued in good quantity, 
and a good spirit prevailed. The official cap of a "Troweler" was adopted and in- 
creases activity at meetings. Frequent visits from Northwestern chapter, and as 
frequent attendance at their meetings has kept us busy and active, and the plans laid 
out before us are many and varied. The Trowel Clubs now in existence are many, 
exact data not being available, but seven chapters are using our constitution and 
ritual, and show good health wherever in existence.

peta Chapter— Belta ^igma Belta 

Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta was organized at Ann Arbor, Michigan, 
in the year 1884. Dr. L. L. Davis, present Grand Master of the Chicago Auxiliary, 
was one of the charter members. In 1885, through the efforts of this same gentleman, 
Beta chapter was duly organized at our college. The first meetings of the chapter 
were held in the office of Dr. Davis, which was then on the southeast corner of Laflin 
and Van Buren Streets. Most of the early work was transacted in this office, where 
also the first initiation was held. Our Dean of Students, Dr. C. N. Johnson, was one 
of the first students initiated into the newly organized chapter, having now held the 
offices of Worthy Master and Grand Master of the Supreme Chapter, besides being 
the Editor of the Desmos, the Fraternity Quarterly. 

Beta Chapter has progressed from the small number of that time to a much 
greater size, but has always considered quality as the first requisite for eligibility. 
During these intervening years the principles of Delta Sigma Delta have always been 
pre-eminent in the life of the chapter and more men have been graduated into the 
Supreme Chapter from Beta than from any other chapter in the fraternity. 

Numerous fraternity houses have been occupied by our chapter, the most recent 
ones being those at 1428 W. Jackson Blvd., 324 So. Ashland Blvd., 611 So. Ashland 
Blvd. and that in which the fraternity was housed during the past term at 309 So. 
Ashland Blvd. None have been as comfortable as might be desired but conditions 
in Chicago have been strained for many years as far as housing was concerned with 
the result that a desirable location could never be obtained. 

The past year has been a most successful one in many ways. A banquet and 
smoker was given in honor of the newly arrived freshmen at the Sherman Hotel just 
a few days after school opened. A large attendance was gratifying. Numerous dances, 
too, have been held during the year, an affair at the Morrison Hotel held during the 
winter, being of special note. On several occasions we have been guests at the 
social functions of our sister chapter in the city, Rho and Eta, of Illinois Dental and 
Northwestern Dental, respectively. Other social functions such as smokers and 
parties were given at the chapter house, the final event of the year being the dinner- 
dance held at the Hotel LaSalle the latter part of April. This truly was the chief 
affair of the year and capped a year filled with activity and enthusiasm. 

Beta Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta has always stood back of anything that 
v. r ould make our college a better place for students to obtain a dental education. The 
number of the faculty, who are graduates of Beta, will vouch for this fact. The 
teachings of our fraternity are such that they inspire those who are coming up 
through the lines of dentistry not only to simulate the careers of those leaders in our 
chosen profession who have made the history not only of Delta Sigma Delta, but of 
the profession. Beta Chapter has the additional stimulus of the association of these 
great men. A. C. Peterson, Historian.

Delta Sigma Delta, mighty ocean 

Upon whose placid fraternal waters, sail 

Ever onward, the ships of our profession 
Safely to successful shores, I hail. 

Mighty ocean, fraternal waters, we recall 

When you were but a tiny rivulet 
That leaping, gurgling through the fields 

Grew larger when other streams you met 
Allied themselves with you. Strongly clasped, 

Onward you sped until now in broad expanse 
Your glistening, gleaming waters, guide the way 

That Knowledge, Strength and Justice might advance. 

Delta Sigma Delta, mighty ocean 

Upon whose placid fraternal waters, sail 

Ever onward, the ships of our profession 
Safely to successful shores, I hail.

J. C. Kloboucnik, Editor Xi Psi Phi 

Your college fraternity should be the place where you make your lasting pro- 
fessional friends. As years go by your time is more occupied and you won't have 
the time to form the comradeship that your college days afforded you. Begin now to 
form solid comradeship. 

The close relationship that you form now, will continue to be your fondest re- 
membrance and rounded fulfillment of after years, something which the world cannot 
upset or cast aside. Within the strong walls of a well-built fraternal friendship, you 
can resign yourself to peace, from the hard calculating demands of the world. 
Friendship we cannot do without, neither can we have too many true friends. 

The fraternity has a real personal worth to you. If you follow its teachings 
and serve it well, it helps to keep you from narrowing to a personal rut. It changes 
your mental outlook of things by contact with other minds in your profession. Men 
in your own line that have the same snags that you have with helping understanding 
of all difficulties — their comradeship is a most enviable possession. More success is 
written from what we do for others, than what goes on inside for ourselves. If you 
find no faith in your fraternal brother, you will soon reduce yourself to a purely 
mechanical device of dragging in the almighty dollar. 

The Xi Psi Phi, has become a factor of college life with considerable power 
for good. We are not a political organization, nor is it our purpose. We are merely 
doing our best for the betterment of college friendship and for the betterment of 
mankind and life. 

The idea prevalent among some college men is, that they can do without a 
fraternity. That is true enough, but you have nothing to fill its place after the want 
has been created. You give your promises and obligations to your fraternity, you 
can throw them down lightly if you wish, but that is bad policy, you yourself, will 
be the biggest loser. Obligations that are taken so lightly only makes it easier for 
one to do so in another way. The more you put into it the better you will feel. But if 
you give nothing, your return will be nothing, hence you see the balm and teachings 
of your fraternity. 

The faculty of this college is working very hard to make it superior to all, but 
they are not the only ones working for superiority. We, the Xi Psi Phis of Lambda 
Chapter are not asleep for we are also gaining the top and our efforts will soon be

(Founded in the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. Established 1911.) 

When the Alpha Zeta Gamma Dental Fraternity was organized, we scarcely 
realized that it was destined to undergo the successful growth which has attended its 
activities in the past years. The fraternity idea, as conceived by those splendid men 
who constituted its charter members, centered largely around the plans for the promo- 
tion of enduring personal friendships which have grown up during the attendance 
at the sessions of the C. C. D. S. 

During the first year or two of our existence, our activities were devoted mainly 
to the establishment of a foundation upon which a lasting structure could, in the 
course of time, be erected. 

Several years passed before it was deemed advisable to organize other chapters, 
and little did the organizers realize that they were laying the foundation of a fraternity 
that would, eventually, be rated among the best dental fraternities in the country. 
In the intervening years a dozen additional chapters have been enrolled under the 
banner of the Alpha Zeta Gamma, and, to the minds of those who have watched our 
growth from its infancy, the chain of chapters is but an indication of greater expansion 
yet to be achieved. 

We are now able to appreciate the seed planted by the efforts of the founders, 
because we now see the fruit of that seed, and the full realization of their fondest 
hopes and dreams. 

In these critical and stirring times, it is the moral obligation of every fraternity 
man to be a leader in thought and action as far as his sphere of influence extends. He 
must show that his training has qualified him to give wise counsel and to use mature 
discretion and judgment wherever and whenever demanded. This is the abiding spirit 
with which every member of the Alpha Zeta Gamma Dental Fraternity is imbued. It 
is this spirit which has made genius of mediocrity, and has pushed men for countless 
ages to the most exalted heights of human endeavor. 

The thorny path of duty is forever the way to everlasting glory, and the Alpha 
Zeta Gamma, having trodden that path, is certain to meet its just reward.

The Xi Delta Phi fraternity was organized at the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery in the latter part of 1919. Its progress and organization for the short period 
of its existence has been more than remarkable. Through the unceasing diligence of 
its organizers and members, the fraternity has grown so that it is now fully capable 
of carrying out the fundamental ideals for which it made its appearance. 

The basic note of all fraternal work was struck at our second annual banquet 
held at the Parkway Hotel on Dec. 10, 1920, at which Dr. P. G. Puterbaugh presided as 
honored toastmaster. The eminent members of. our faculty, Dr. Johnson and Dr. 
Logan, delivered the keynote speeches. Dr. Johnson sincerely expressed his desire 
for a professional fraternalism for all dentists. Dr. Logan stated that work, and 
plenty of it, is the secret of all accomplishment. 

We are proud of our Alma Mater and proud of the interest taken in our organiza- 
tion by the members of our faculty. They have gone before and left their mark 
on the world. They extend to us the hand of friendship and tell us that fraternalism 
and work are necessary to successful dental accomplishments. 

The piteous wail of struggling and unfortunate humanity has reached us from 
the darkest ages and each shudder for the misery of the past has given us added 
inspiration to help the future. It has been up to the good to combat the sinister 
influences of evil. The ravages of pestilence and war, the total disregard for the value 
of human life, the lust for power and pelf have disrupted nations, changed their 
destinies and cut deep inroads into the rank and file of humanity. The hatred, the 
struggle and strife, arise from the fundamental characteristics of the individual men 
that control affairs. Prejudice and discriminations have often clouded brilliant 
careers and disclosed, not a noble, but a petty character dominated by almost insane 
propensities. An examination of the world situation — a close scrutiny of the world 
catastrophe and its aftermath — a view of the tragedy of many small nations of today — 
brings out facts in character that produce such dire results. By politics, by secret 
diplomacy, by lust for power, the escutcheon of Europe was dyed in blood. Simple 
exploited misunderstandings engendered first a mutual dissatisfaction; then words and 
thoughts and deeds and political machinations incubated the seed of discord to the 
production of hatred. 

Individuals make the nation. Nations make the world. Youth stands aghast at 
the appalling horrors he is forced to view and commences an attempt at world reforma- 
tion in his youthful zeal — but to no avail. Mens characters and natures are so different 
that it becomes a grave world problem to combat the evil features of character. Some 
men are easily dominated by others. The shrewd and strong play the weak against 
each other, then prev upon both. Situations, simple in origin, become aggravated and 
exaggerated till cannons boom and life is destroyed. 

During the late war, the talk of efficiency of the nation hinged upon morale. 
It was the old story of keeping up faith and hope and sticking together lest "divided 
we fall." An organization that bands together a group of men and puts harmony in 
their hearts, effaces the unpleasant memory of petty dislikes and prejudices existing 
previously amongst them. It places all members of the group on the same plane 
and paves the way for mutual confidences, faith, and understandings. 

The Xi Delta Phi, by its mere organization, has paved the way for concord 
amongst its men and has raised their standards, goals, and ideals. 


Through its accomplishments it seeks to dissipate the ill will and bitter hatred 
which may arise because of aggravated misconceptions and misunderstandings which 
result in rancor, prejudice, and discrimination, on all sides by groups and factions. 
There should be no such thing as discord among the members of the same unit and the 
same profession. 

We seek to radiate a good will that will cement itself to the fraternalism, the 
friendship, the goodfellowship that we know exists in other fraternal units. 

In addition to this, our modus operandi includes Dr. Logan's recipe for accom- 
plishment — '"work." Dental fraternalism and work, as sponsored by Dr. Johnson 
and Dr. Logan, will be our goal. Its range is infinite. We will go per aspera ad astra. 
ad infinitum. 


If I were a writer like Shakespeare or Scott, 
Or a poet like Shelley (I know I am not), 
I would write and acclaim in accents most high 
Of my beloved fraternity, my Xi Delta Phi. 


I would tell all about its pleasures and joys, 
And the social functions it offers the boys, 
Of the smokers and banquets and all such that my 
Fraternity offers, my Xi Delta Phi. 


I would portray our mutual interest plan, 

And our efforts to assist every man; 

Our fraternal spirit and how we try 

To assist every brother of our Xi Delta Phi. 


And I wouldn't think that my work's quite complete, 
Without telling a little of the fun when we meet. 
The jokes and conundrums that just seem to tie 
The hearts of the boys to their Xi Delta Phi. 


And I couldn't forbear, if it's only a line, 
To mention the love that is almost divine; 
Those tender affections that almost well nigh 
Fills this heart for my dear frat, my Xi Delta Phi. 


So when I am ill, and my end is seen near. 
And around me are gathered my brothers sincere, 
And our Heavenly Father ordains I must die, 
On my tomb place these letters: HA$.

To produce a well rounded professional man a 
three-fold development is needed. 

The development of the professional mind is well 
cared for by the school, but the student Young 
Men's Christian Association is the only organiza- 
tion in the community even partially equipped to 
care for the physical and spiritual development. 

Because of inadequate rented quarters these great 
student needs are at present only partially met. We 
now aim to prove the need of a great student build- 
ing in this community and press toward its material- 


During the summer letters of information are 
mailed to prospective students and much help is 
given in the opening days of school. 


A list of carefully inspected rooms is provided for 
use at all times. 


While work has been very scarce this year a number 
of men have been placed in positions. 


The value of the student hand book is attested by 
the increased number published this year. 


Much personal Christian work has been done by the 
secretary and the student has been directed to the 

church of his choice.

One of the first social events of the Zips, held this year was a Freshman smoker, 
its purpose being to get acquainted with Zip new pledges and also prospective pledges. 
A few members of the faculty were present, namely: Drs. Roubert and Danielson. 
Dr. Leon Jones, of the Chicago Metropolitan Quartet, and Dr. C. A. Ballinger, Alumni 
of Lambda Chapter, gave us the best they possessed in the way of entertainment by 
their songs and piano solo. Drs. Leininger and Carlson kept the audience in constant 
uproar with some snappy stories and impersonations. Cider and doughnuts were 
served to all. Choice cigars and cigarettes were a-plenty for those who cared to 
indulge. The evening ended up with a ballet dancer and she sure was some gal. 

Among the social activites of the Xi Psi Phi fraternity, a joint Psi Omega and 
Xi Psi Phi dance was given at the Great Northern Hotel on November 29th. The 
Zips and' Psi O's glided most gracefully upon the tile floors of the Crystal Room, to 
the jazzy strains of one of the best jazz bands in the city. The punch that was served 
had a wonderful effect upon those who cared to indulge, but its effect was not con- 
spicuous enough to arouse the curiosity of the prohibition agents. We were credited 
with the presence of many prominent Zips and Psi O's. Dr. G. F. Purvis contributed to 
the merriment with a few vocal selections which I'm sure everyone enjoyed. This 
great affair proved a success and I know a very pleasant time was experienced by all 
who attended. 

The evening of January 28th we enjoyed a dance at Garfield Park refectory. 
It was a great success and well attended by "Zips" from Illinois and Northwestern, and 
when all these "Zips"' get together it can't help but be a success. 

February 25th we gave a dance with Sigma Chapter Xi Psi Phi at Garfield Park 
and as far as amusement is concerned it went "over the top," because of the stunts 
pulled by the pledges who were shortly to be initiated into the mysteries of Xi Psi Phi. 

February 1, 1921, was the date of our big annual banquet at the Morrison Hotel. 
Lots to eat — fine entertainment — good smokes and fine talks all made it a very 
successful evening. 

March 8th was the scene of another smoker at Morrison Hotel, where Dr. Sec- 
combe of Toronto, Canada, gave us a wonderful talk on what is expected of a dentist 
and more especially the economic side of dentistry. It was a valuable talk for all 
"Zips" who attended and has marked our last smoker up to the present time. 

Our Senior banquet will probably be our next social event and believe me, boys, 
she is going to be some banquet. The underclassmen will bid all senior "Zips" a 
fond farewell and send them out with lots of the old "Zip" pep. 


Kappa Chapter of the Psi Omega fraternity has been enjoying all the privileges 
of their new house. They have held several house parties and each one was of 
remarkable success. The first smoker, held early in October, was a stunning success. 
The evening was greatly enjoyed by everyone, especially the Freshmen, and we feel 
assured that they left with the spirit of good fellowship at heart. 

The annual Psi Omega-Xi Psi Phi dance was held Monday night, November 15, 
in the Crystal Ball Room of the Great Northern Hotel. The room was beautifully 
decorated for the occasion and everyone was overjoyed as there was lots of punch and 
snappy music. 

The dancing parties held at the house every three weeks have proven successful 
by the enthusiasm shown by everyone, as they are eagerly looking forward to the ones 
to come. 

The final event of the season will be a dinner dance given in honor of the out- 
going Seniors on the evening of May 7th at the Drake Hotel.

I am asked to write about the important events of the Xi Delta Phi that are 
recorded on the pages of history of the last two years. I find it difficult to do justice 
to the subject within such limited space. However, I will and shall endeavor to bring 
back to our minds the most important features of our social life at school. 

The Freshman had been but a few weeks at school. Before he had left his 
little home town, his mind had been crowded with vague rumors of fraternities, those 
wonderful and mysterious organizations which were said to exist Sub Rosa at the 
college to which he was going. It was up to the upper classmen, then, to invite him 
to an affair which would make him dizzy and bless him with a splitting headache; 
no other but the "Smoker." The Freshie, together with his benefactors enjoyed them- 
selves quite well, for after all it is a manly art to smoke. 

The headache was soon carried away by a few Aspirin tablets plus a dozen of 
text books, and we were getting hungry for another party. Two months elapsed and 
the college work was in full swing. A dance was given at the Humboldt Park Re- 
fectory and the very same spirit prevailed. The music stimulated Dr. Lepak to 
do almost the shimmy and as for Drs. Krauser, Purvis and Hodgeman, well 

Before the final examinations a banquet was given at the Edgewater Beach Hotel. 
The affair was perfect. It was the talk of the school. Dr. Puterbaugh produced a 
few orators that evening, for he made every faculty member present deliver a little 
talk of about a thousand words. Thus, we ended a happy college year. 

After a pleasant summer a still more pleasant winter followed. According ti» 
customs and traditions, the year's grind was celebrated at the Hamlin Park Refectory. 
We were all there with bells on. 

As for some of our swellheads who do not indulge in the indoor sports of 
"Shooting Craps," and yet whose fingers are craving for the sense of touch of the 
ivories, we had to arrange a few bunco parties. 

The cold December found us all busy, working hard, pursuing and achieving. 
We had to relieve the strain by drowning some of our troubles at the Parkway Hotel 
Banquet. This banquet is an important event by itself in our career. If there 
is a heaven, it cannot be more beautiful and appealing than the hall in which pro- 
fessors, students and beautiful young ladies spent the evening together. It was an 
honor to have Drs. Logan, Johnson. Puterbaugh, Lepak and other members of the 
faculty, whose very presence served as a contributing factor toward noble ac- 

The old Freshies, who are now Sophs, were relating to the new Freshies of the 
dizzy time they had once upon a time. We then sent for quotations from the leading 
cigar factories throughout the world and we bought a carload of "Ropes," and im- 
ported from Egypt a caravan of "Camels" and gave a Smoker at the Great Northern 
Hotel. Dr. Kendall does not smoke but he can talk, and Dr. Van Minden can play. 
Dr. Aison, our "spiritual advisor," dished out plenty of advice on fraternalism for 
which we are much indebted. In fact, we had a display of talents there. Dr. Lepak 
did not say much; the cigar box was in front of him. It is only one week since that 
"night," and the reader will easily detect a trace of an unbalanced mind. I have not 
yet recovered. 

This history has shown that our college life is not crowded only with text books 
and "points," but also with social and literary features which are the soothing 
balsams to our souls. In that life we have not been untrue to our general reputation.

Smoker was held at the Great Northern Hotel on November 5th, 1921. Fresh- 
men pledges were on the job, and a great deal of fraternal spirit and good fellowship 
was shown by all. Dr. Roubert was one of the hits of the night. 1 1 wonder if his wife 
knows. ) 

Dance was held at the Hamlin Park Refectory, January 14th, 1921. For an out- 
of-the-way place, the attendance surely was too great, and a good time was reported 
by all. . 

Combined lecture meeting of C. C. D. S., N. W. D. S., and I. S. D. S. chapters 
was held at the Atlantic Hotel, February 19th, 1921. Drs. Weinshenker, Bartfield. 
and Laby gave us pointers on anaesthesia. 

Semi-public initiation was held at the Atlantic Hotel and on Michigan Boulevard 
on March 20th, 1921. W. Loeffler. and H. V. Stone report that fishing is good on 
Michigan Boulevard. 

Dinner-dance was held at the Sherman Hotel. Tiger Room, May 6th, 1921. A 
surprise was staged on Dr. Roubert. Mr. A. Reiger introduced the Toastmaster, Mr. 
E. A. Rosenberg. Speakers of the evening were Drs. Weinshenker, Roubert, Bartfield. 
Malay, Honoroff, delegates from other chapters, etc. The Faculty of the C. C. D. S. 
showed good attendance. 

Convention was opened with luncheon in the afternoon at the Sherman Hotel, 
and dinner dance in the evening of May 6th, 1921. These functions were held for 
the purpose of getting acquainted. Plans were made and reports heard on May 7th 
and 8th. 


On the afternoon of Sunday, March 20th, 1921, I was walking down Michigan 
Boulevard, taking my week-end hike, and in the distance I saw a crowd. As I came 
amongst the crowd, I heard someone say, "look at the nuts." I did look, and I saw 
two young men trying to catch fish right out in Michigan Boulevard. 

An elderly lady thought their mothers ought to be notified. A portly gentleman 
voted in favor of jail. The traffic cop was all for sending them to the Psychopathic 

Harry V. Stone, Senior at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, and Walter 
D. Loeffler, Sophomore, went fishing. Weather conditions were ideal — soft breezes 
and overcast skies. They were all dressed up in their fishing uniforms — straw hats 
and everything. Harry settled himself on an island on Michigan Avenue and 
Van Buren street, while Walter fished from the curb. 

"Why do those silly young men with fishing poles sit there?" a gray-haired 
woman wanted to know. 

Why, indeed? The critic should have asked the handsome Mr. Loeffler, or smil- 
ing Mr. Stone. They might have informed her that every young man who carries a 
fishing pole is not looking for fish — on Michigan Avenue. 

They were being initiated by the Alpha Chapter of the Alpha Zeta Gamma 
Dental Fraternity, and will soon know the secrets of that organization.

On October 7 Beta of Delta Sigma Delta gave a banquet at the Hotel Sherman. 
Despite the fact that it was only two clays after the opening of school, the dinner was 
characterized by a large attendance of faculty and members, as well as about thirty- 
five newly arrived Freshmen, in whose honor the affair was given. Everyone attending 
reported a very enjoyable evening. 

On the evening of October 27, Beta of Delta Sigma Delta gave their first 
smoker at the chapter house at 309 South Ashland Avenue. A goodly number of 
guests were present, and the eats, smokes, and entertainment furnished were conducive 
to a delightful time. The pep displayed by all assured the committee that their labors 
were well given. 

An informal dance was given by Beta of Delta Sigma Delta on the evening of 
November 19, in the East Room at the New Morrison Hotel. Harvey's Orchestra 
furnishes peppy music and the frappe served was thoroughly enjoyed by the warmed-up 
foxtrotters. Rho and Eta Chapters of Illinois Dental and Northwestern Dental, 
respectively, were guests of the evening, and all had a happy evening because of the 
size of the attendance, rather than in spite of it. 

On the evening of March 11, a dancing party was held by Beta of Delta Sigma 
Delta at the Douglas Park Refectory. An orchestra from Benson's made the crowd 
step lively, and the noveltv dances were successful in getting everybody acquainted. 

The evening of April 15 brought another dancing party at the Douglas Park 
Piefectory given by Beta of Delta Sigma Delta. Delightful music was rendered by a 
Benson orchestra, and it was very evident that the same committee officiating before 
was still in form. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and showed their approval 
by the congeniality displayed. 

April 29, Beta of Delta Sigma Delta gave their final affair of the year, it being a 
dinner dance at the Hotel La Salle. The Red Room had been reserved by the com- 
mittee and a delicious meal was served, after which an orchestra from Harvey's 
rendered music in keeping with the occasion. During the evening entertainers amused 
all, the entertainment furnished being of high order. The ladies were presented 
with delightful favors and all registered happiness. We were honored by the presence 
of Dr. C. N. Johnson, Grand Master of the Supreme Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta, as 
well as the Dean and a goodly number of the faculty, and enjoyed a number of after- 
dinner speeches.

years. Look around and see if you 
can see a Bosworth office a failure. We have 
a service plus plan for handling the needs of 
dentists and you cannot afford to consider

of an office, including carpets, draperies, re- 
ception room furniture and put them all in 
on one contract at 25% down and twenty- 
five months to pay the balance, in fact we 
complete an office and give you one that 
fairly represents you to your patients. A
