READERS, this is the 1923 Dentos, 
marking another milestone in the 
history of the institution. It needs 
neither flowery expression nor scin- 
tilating phrase. Here it is. Let it speak 
for itself. 

It is the work of the students who 
have loved it and, loving it, have inter- 
woven their personality into it. It has 
become as much a part of them as the 
institution which it represents. The editors 
have no apologies to make — nor do they 
expect a poet laureate's crown. They gave 
the book the best — the all that was in 
them. Now that their labors and worries 
are over, they present their child, the 
Dentos of 1923. Your satisfaction is their 
recompense. 

It was their valuable co-operation and 
assistance that carried the '23 Dentos suc- 
cessfully to its completion. Through 
their untiring efforts the trials and hard- 
ships in getting out the annual were turned 
to joys. There were no worries ; the task 
was a pleasant one.

TO 

CHARLES NELSON JOHNSON 

M. A., L. D. S., D. D. S., M. D. P., F. A. C. D. 

Teacher, Author, Doctor of Dental Surgery 
and Dean of Students 

we respectfully dedicate this edition of 
The DENTOS 












"Now 1 lay me down to sleep, 
I pray the Lord my faith to keep, 
If I should die ere morning's sun 
I pray the Lord my work's well done. 







ERE IX you have- the keynote of a great man's success, the gov- 
erning- factor of a well-ordered, magnificent being, the simple 
expression of a great mind, the aim of whose whole existence is 
to do guild unto his fellow beings, to zealously and conscien- 
tiously smooth the roughened pathway of life for his neighbor. 
Charles Nelson Johnson is tltal man. It is because of his untir- 
ing self-sacrifice that much good has been accomplished in the 
world. It is because of his desire to aid humanity that we are 
permitted to offer these lines of sincerest tribute. It is because of his unselfish 
desire to help others to enjoy, in a measure, the fruits of a life given to lessen 
the pains and unpleasantness of his less fortunate brethren, that the student 
body of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery is privileged to dedicate this 
publication to him. It is impossible for us to do justice to a character such as 
his. It is impossible for anyone to ever fully describe the innumerable sterling 
qualities of the man, his never-to-be-equalled accomplishments as a master of 
dental surgery ; his countless achievements in imparting to others a part of his 
golden store of knowledge : his numerous literary masterpieces which have been 
offered to mankind in bumble generosity of spirit, that others might bask in the 
mellow glow of his lovable disposition. To those who have been permitted a 
close acquaintanceship with him, 1 will leave that task. They have fallen far 
short of justice to him. but inasmuch as it is beyond the pale of human possibility 
to suitably eulogize so fine a creation as The Master, their efforts must suffice. 
The undergraduates of our college are more than proud to say that we have the 
most profound respect for this venerable youth. We dare nut presume to say 
that we love him. 

At a testimonial banquet tendered Dr. Johnson by the dental profession of 
Chicago and his former students, in celebration of his completion of forty years 
of professional service, on Monday evening, April 11, 1921, at seven o'clock, at 
the Hotel La Salle, Chicago, Illinois, he was recognized as a citizen, educator, 
author, editor and practitioner. 

A few of the glowing tributes paid him follow : 

Speech by Dr. Henry E. Friesell, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dean of the 
Dental Department of Pittsburgh University and then president of the National 
Dental Association : 

". . . If we must have more schools we certainly must have more teachers 
and some plan must be devised for interesting our young men to take up dental 
teaching as a life work, not as a pastime, not as a side issue, but as something 
that will offer as much in return in the way of satisfaction in their life's work- 
as anything else they can take up. and I know of nothing that presents a larger 
field, greater opportunities and more important opportunities than dental educa- 
tion. Also I know of no field in which a real teacher can do more good in the 
development of a great profession, in the development of units, the individuals 
who make up that profession than a great teacher, and we are here to pay our 



^D^ntcs

respects and our honor to one of the greatest teachers we have ever had in the 
dental profession, Dr. Johnson." 

Dr. William A. Evans, Chicago, 111. : 

. The members of my profession, the medical profession, are render- 
ing better service to those that serve by reason of what they have learned from 
the dental profession, and particularly from its great leader, Dr. C. N. Johnson. 
I served as health commissioner of this city when it was proposed that dental 
hygiene, care of the teeth and mouths of people of this city, should be adopted 
as one part of the program of the Department of Health, and when the dental 
profession was called upon to take charge of that duty, the man that first came 
into our minds, the man on whom we first called was Dr. C. X. Johnson." 

Dr. John V. Conzett, Dubuque, Iowa : 

". . . We all know what Dr. Johnson has been, what Dr. Johnson is as 
a dentist, and the tremendous influence that he has exerted always upon the 
whole profession. If we speak of art we speak: of a Raphael, or a Rubens, 
or a Guido ; when we go into the gallery of sculpture we speak of a Praxiteles, 
or a Michelangelo ; in music, we speak of a Beethoven, of a Mozart, of a Handel ; 
and in our own profession when we speak of something rare and something 
beautiful we speak of it as a Johnson, something which has transcended the art 
of the ordinary man." 

Dr. Otto V. King, Chicago, 111. : 

". . . In retracing my steps to get the proper view of Dr. Johnson's life's 
work, I remember distinctly the first time I met him. It was at the time of the 
big meeting of the Chicago Odontographic Society in 1897. During the discus- 
sion of a paper, one of the discussers unfortunately criticized the technical 
ability of the dentists of Chicago. Dr. Johnson, with the spirit of a Roman, 
ably defended the honor of his Chicago associates. No one in the history of 
dentistry has ever discussed as many papers as Dr. Johnson. A careful review, 
of dental literature will show that he has opened the discussion of a large per- 
centage of the papers that have been read before the old Chicago Odontographic 
Society, the Chicago Dental Society, and the Illinois State Dental Society. In- 
variably, when some distinguished guest appeared before any of these societies, 
Dr. Johnson was delegated to open the discussion. This, in itself, is quite signifi- 
cant in that the universal opinion of dentists in Chicago has always been that 
Dr. Johnson was pre-eminently qualified to represent the real progress of den- 
tistry in this great Middle West. He, among all others, was recognized as a 
great author, educator and teacher. 

Dr. Johnson's book on Operative Dentistry will ever stand out as a monu- 
mental work for the profession and will cause his name to be recorded as one of 
the really great operators in dental history. His book on Success in Dentistry 
has played a very important part in teaching the dental profession thrift, thus 
giving the profession an insight into some of the fundamental problems in dental 
economics. Surely the future dental historian will record Dr. Johnson's name 
as a great dentist who lived during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 

On the dental highway of progress, our guest has been a beacon light to 
thousands of dentists, many of whom have been his students. 

There is another significant fact about Dr. Johnson's literary talent that 


















CI 















should be stressed. He has not only contributed a great number of editorials and 
papers but he has manifested a more versatile talent in that his writings have 
covered a greater variety of subjects than those of any other man in the annals 
of dentistry. 

A careful review of secular literature indicates that Dr. Johnson has con- 
tributed to publications outside of dentistry. Many of his letters and poems 
have been published, and still others are as yet unpublished." 

Dr. John Buckley, Los Angeles, Cal. : 

". . . As a teacher C. N. Johnson is the Colonel Parr of the golf course, 
the horse that won the Derby, the pitcher who retained the pennant, the boxer 
who wore the belt. As a teacher C. N. Johnson has succeeded, and in teaching, 
as in every other walk of life, character is the foundation of success. You may 
have thought that the unusual success of Johnson as a citizen, and practitioner, 
in his native land, as an author and an editor, was due to the fact that he was 
a well-educated man. It is true that he is not deficient in education, but in 
the years to come, of all who will hear of his grand career and of his services 
to his profession and to his fellow-man, you will not hear that either the high 
place he reached or that which he accomplished was entirely due to his educa- 
tion. On the contrary you will constantly hear, as accounting for his great 
success in these various walks of life, that he was obedient and affectionate as 
a son, honest and upright as a citizen, tender and devoted as a husband, kind 
and considerate as a father, and truthful, generous, unselfish, moral, and clean 
in every station of life. Never and under no circumstances did he consider any 
of these attributes too weak for manliness. 

I borrow here for the purpose the selected words of Grover Cleveland ex- 
pressed in behalf of the martyred McKinley, and I feel that I have a right to 
do so on this occasion for C. N. Johnson is the William McKinley of dentistry: 

Let us make no mistake. In him we have a most distinguished man, a great 
man, a useful man, who became distinguished, great, and useful because he had 
and retained, unsullied and unimpaired, those qualities of mind and of heart 
which I fear too many of us keep in the background or have abandoned alto- 
gether." 

Dr. C. N. Johnson was born in Brock Township, Ontario, March 16, 1860. 
He was educated at Port Perry High School. He was graduated from the Royal 
College of Dental Surgeons in 1881 and practiced dentistry in Collingwood, 
Ontario, until 1884. He moved to Chicago and was graduated from the Chi- 
cago College of Dental Surgery in 1885. He has practiced here ever since his 
graduation. 

Dr. Johnson began lecturing in the spring of 1886. He was demonstrator 
of anatomy for several years and was made professor of operative dentistry 
in 1891, which chair he has held until the present. He has been dean of stu- 
dents for many years. 

He was editor of the Dental Review in 1894 and again from 1902 to 1919. 
He published in that journal alone more than 200 original communications and 
over 500 editorials. Dr. Johnson has been a prolific contributor to other dental 
magazines and to literary publications. He is the author of many text-books on 
dentistrv. He is editor of "The Bur," which is published by the alumni associa- 
tion of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. He has received the Jarvis 
Fellowship Medal of the Dental Society of the State of Xew York.

Alumni Clinic 



The alumni clinic in celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery was held on April 16 and 17, 1923. There is no 
gainsaying the fact that in point of attendance and the number of special and 
table clinics, exhibitions and lecturers, the clinic this year surpassed all others held 
at the college. Class reunions of 1888, 1893 and 1898 featured the clinic and 
graduates of those years were guests of the alumni association. 

The lecturers included Dr. Hart J. Goslee who read a paper on the "Principles, 
Indications and Comparative Advantages of Fixed Bridgework" ; Dr. Robert E. 
MacBovle on "Fixed Bridge Abutment Pieces for Vital Teeth, Anterior find 
Posterior" ; Dr. John P. Buckley who demonstrated his new material for the 
protection of dental pulps and the filling of canals of pulpless teeth ; Dr. W. H. G. 
Logan who lectured on Oral Surgery at the Cook County Hospital ; Drs. P. G. 
Puterbaugh and E. P. Boulger in a symposium on root-canal problems, giving 
the therapeutics and technique of filling root-canals as now taught at the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery; Dr. Carl J. Grove on methods of pulp removal to 
prevent periapical infections ; Dr. John L. Kendall on "Diet, Blood Chemistry 
and Teeth." 

Among the numerous special clinics, the following attracted considerable 
attention : the special clinic on movable — fixed and movable — removable bridge- 
work by Drs. M. H. and J. C. Mortenson ; "Partial Removable Restorations" 
by Dr. F. E. Roach ; "Anesthesia and Minor Oral Surgery," by Drs. P. G. 
Puterbaugh, B. A. Morris and G. F. Vogt; "Attachments to Vital Teeth," by 
Dr. R. E. MacBoyle; "Pyorrhea and Prophylaxis," by Dr. A. F. James; "Radio- 
graphy," by Dr. Fred F. Molt; "Oral Pathology," by C. S. Suddarth ; "Full 
Denture Construction," by Drs. Rupert E. Hall, L. N. Roubert and R. Salazar ; 
"Partial Removable Denture Construction," by Dr. W. I. McNeil; "Full Denture 
Construction," by members of the Chicago Prosthetic Clinic Club.

Considerable interest was shown in the student clinics. Orthodontia, gold 
foil work, full and partial dentures construction, removable bridge, crown and 
fixed bridgework, pulp-canal work, and exodontia were demonstrated with 
patients by junior and senior students. Sophomore students had table clinics 
in crown and bridge technic, anatomy, dissecting and drawings, and operative 
technic. 

The freshmen held table clinics on dental anatomy, tooth sections, carvings 
and instrument making ; technical drawings ; histology and biology and prosthetic 
dentistry technic. 

The annual banquet held at the Hotel LaSalle on Monday evening, April 
16, was one that will long be remembered by the alumni who attended. The guest 
of honor was Dr. Truman W. Brophy.

In Appreciation 



This book would not be complete without mentioning the names of the stu- 
dents and members of the faculty who worked so zealously and enthusiastically 
to make the book a success. The spirit of self-sacrifice and harmonious co-ope- 
ration was prevalent among the staff and contributors, and friction was reduced 
to a minimum. All were imbued with an intense desire to do anything and 
everything to insure success for the publication, even though it meant loss of 
points and absence from the lecture room. 

There is no gainsaying the fact that, were it not for the untiring energy, 
steadfast loyalty and unswerving devotion displayed on the part of Gerald R. 
McLaughlin, editor-in-chief, this book would never have reached the press. It 
was he who infused the proper spirit of self-denial and harmony among his 
subordinates, goading them on so as to bring the best and most out of them and 
surmounting obstacles that appeared almost insuperable. He spent more time on 
the preparation of this publication than any half-dozen of the rest of the staff, 
and, in addition, was a prolific contributor. 

Sachs, associate editor; Slavin, business manager, and Reynolds, assistant 
business manager, Buyer and Slater, comprised the rest of the Dentos staff. By 
hard work and sacrifice of everything else, they were able to support McLaughlin 
in every detail. They were the second main pillars in the Dentos structure. Slater 
especially proving himself a regular glutton for work. 

In the Senior class, Galpern ( Rabinowich ) as editor, fulfilled his obligations 
faithfully. His offerings were plentiful and numerous and we owe him a debt 
of gratitude for his devotion and efforts. We must also mention Casey, Corn- 
well, Noskin, Xeedleman, Sherman, Mistarz, Hoffman. Melichar and Andelman 
in the Senior class as contributors in some form or another to the success of the 
book. 

The Juniors were ably represented by Hartford, editor ; Spickerman and 
Brady, assistant editors, and De Koven, Stratton, Otten and Silhan. 

Among the Sophomores Tallant, Ryan, Quinn, Heurlin and Flood were 
responsible for the success of their section. 

In the Freshman class, Otto, the brilliant cartoonist, probably contributed 
more material than any one else. In addition to turning out a large number of 
excellent cartoons for his own class, he made several pictures for other classes 
and for several frontispieces. MacWithey must be thanked for his splendid 
contributions and faithful services. We must also mention Hayes, Wolfe, 
Levadi, Longnecker, Postels and Lock. 

The success of the Dentos this year was due, in a large measure, to Dr. John 
L. Kendall, our faculty adviser. It was his experience in publication matters 
that enabled us to secure the most resonable printing and engraving contracts 
possible. His valuable suggestions and counsel were of immense benefit to us, as 
well as his addresses to the various classes in behalf of the Dentos.

Student Council 








gntos 



i i : ■ 



Student Council 

The Student Council at Chicago College of Dental Surgery was organized in 
the fall of 1921 by the present Junior class, who were at that time Sophomores. 
The council is composed of four representatives of each class, with the exception 
of the Seniors. By next year the Seniors will be represented on the council, 
making the body a representative aggregation of the entire student body. 

The officers of the student council are elected in November of each school year 
and hold office until the following November. 

The purpose of the student council is to act as a mediating body between 
the faculty and the student body. The council represents the students in all 
dealings of the faculty with the students and seeks to promote congeniality and 
unison between the undergraduates and the administrative board of the college. 

The members of the council were quite active during their first year of 
existence and brought about the betterment of the restaurant facilities in the 
college basement. They also met with the faculty representatives on several occa- 
sions, accomplishing much for the student body as a whole. The members of 
this year's council have not been called upon to function officially during their 
regime but have ever been in readiness to efficiently discharge their duties.

Class President's Address 

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

Aeons and aeons ago, ages and ages after the heterogeneous collection of gases 
had combined, congealed and stratified into this mass we call the Earth. Dame 
Nature, the weaver of the destinies of man, while sitting at the foot of the 
Creator, began weaving the story of life. Whether it began as biblists tell us, 
by the magical transformation of a grain of dust into Adam and an equally 
magical conception of Eve from Adam's rib, or whether on the other hand, it 
started by the even more magical union of a number of elements in a mortar 
formed from a shallow rock along some primeval seashore, mixed and trituated 
into life by a pestle in the mystical hands of nature, is of little consequence. 

This we do know — that the weaving began somewhere in the dim, distant 
past. Life progressed, it improved, it withstood the ravages of time, the buffet- 
ting of the elements and the shoals of adversity. As time went on these adver- 
sities varied. At first it was a continuous, savage, brutal battle for existence ; 
might against might, strength against strength, muscle against muscle, brawn 
against brawn. The colors were drab, dark, sordid, differing little, if any, in 
tone from the muck which originated them. 

With the progress of time, the progenitors of the present races developed ; 
cunning, a semblance of thought, developed. This sense, this interrelation of cells 
called the brain, coupled with muscle and brawn, soon made man, crude as he was 
in those days, and crude he is even today, the Ruler of the world; with the advent 
of intellect, the coloring of the tapestry, became a bit brighter. 

Then Nature did a curious thing. She combined atoms and elements in one 
person differently than in those about him, so that he had more cunning, more 
strength, more intellect, and more power than his companions ; thus he soon 
became their leader. He not only tamed the wild beast in the jungle, but tamed 
his fellow creatures. His thoughts became their thoughts, his actions became 
their actions, his ways became their ways, his ideals became their ideals, his will 
became their will, until a group of people was formed having a common interest, 
aim, and desire. In this manner the Weaver started one corner of her tapestrv. 
In other corners, she wove other races with their desires, their aims, their 
ambitions. 

Then Nature did another wondrous thing. Finding that one race developed 
too rapidly in a certain direction, she forced them to unite with one of the other 
races and as their ideas clashed so they clashed, the result being that one race was 
absorbed by the other and out of the intermingling of races new colors were 
formed, new tones and new qualities. 

For Nature is a wonderful worker, weaving here, weaving there, each race a 
web, seemingly isolated, growing, developing, progressing independently. Then 
the weaver, sardonically grasping a few threads, pulls them together, interweav- 
ing them, so thoroughly, so persistently, and painstakingly that no longer do we 
have a number of separate stories on separate looms, but one combined epic. 

For Nature is the mythical unseen weaver of the roof of the world, each life 
is a thread however short or long, woven into the many colored tapestries of the 
universe. Like an old dame sitting by the fireside, she skillfully weaves the lives 
of men, of nations, art, literature, religion, power, upon her loom. In and out, 





Ventos

up and down, over and under, backward and forward, this life upon that life, 
this idea upon that idea, this thought shading the action, this action shading the 
thought ; this idea standing out as a golden thread above the sordid drabness of 
the surrounding cloth ; this action a crimson blotch woven into the purity sur- 
rounding it. 

Just as the weaver's threads go in and out. up and down, over and under, so 
too, the destinies of mankind change. Clotho spins the thread of a single life, 
Lachesis measures it, Atropo severs it, a new thread is inserted. Family histories 
rise and fall, come to an end, and another thread is inserted, and Dame Nature 
in her infinite wisdom sees to it that no thread, however golden or brilliant or how- 
ever sordid or drab, extends too far above the others in the weaving. Carefully 
she weaves and slowly gathers up the threads as she works lest the tapestry 
become out of proportion or the ends ragged or the story distorted. 

Occasionally, a new thread appears within the weaving, brighter, clearer, more 
beautiful than its brothers. A new idea is born, a new thought, a golden thread 
destined to improve the intricate web of mankind. At first it is vague, feeble, 
and indistinct as it is being crowded out by the darker, grayer threads about it. 
But as it persists and develops, it pushes aside the dark gray masses and stands 
forth, gleaming, glorious and distinct. By its presence the tapestry becomes 
brighter, its brilliance is cast upon the threads about it and the skeins that had 
endeavored to crowd it out become brighter because of it. Sooner or later the 
golden thread dies out because the weaver believes in harmony of color. Too 
bright a thread can not go on forever, but its influence upon the tapestry lives 
after it. 

This I like to think is the story of mankind. Good threads and bad threads, 
bright threads and dark threads, long threads and short threads, each influencing 
the character and color of those about them as they are woven and interwoven 
into the grand scheme of life and in the end when the weaver, nature, spreads the 
finished product at the foot of the Creator. He may trace the history pictured 
there from the very beginning; woven in the dim, dark, distant past in dark, dull, 
gray, and often black colors. As He reads on He will see the shapes grow brighter, 
the story brighter, the weaving brighter as the bright threads appear and reappear 
in ever increasing numbers down through the ages. As he nears the end of 
the border there will be a golden mass of brilliancy, depicting the thoughts, actions, 
and dreams of the finished product in the web. 

Some one has said, "Of the millions and millions of people who inhabit the 
earth, only a few hundreds are responsible for the betterment of mankind." 
Only a few hundred minds have actually contributed new thoughts or new ideas 
in art, literature and science, that humanity may progress. The rest of us must 
be content to copy, to ape their thoughts, to appropriate their ideas and use them 
as our own. We are parrots who mimic our masters. It is the lives of those 
few hundreds scattered through the ages that are the golden threads in the tapes- 
try, and our lives interwoven and intertwined among them become brighter 
because of their presence. 

Into this gigantic tapestry are woven the lives of the class of 1923. A hundred 
threads coming from the four corners of the Earth Dame Nature has somehow 
brought us together. For four long years our threads have followed a single 
course, for four years we have worked and worried together, laughed and plaved 
together, dreamed the same dreams, thought the same thoughts, been guided, 
shaped, and moulded by the same hands and intellects, and in the past four years 
of weaving, our lives have become brighter, stronger and better because of the 
influences to which we have been subjected.

From now on the Weaver has ordained that our threads separate. Some of 
us will never see one another again. We will scatter once more to the four 
corners and become interwoven there, but wherever we go, our lives will be 
better and our threads brighter because of the light we have absorbed during the 
past four years. Wherever we go, wherever we establish ourselves, let us always 
endeavor to preserve that little bit of brightness we have attained here. Let us 
endeavor not only to maintain its brightness, but to enhance it so that our squares 
of tapestry may be the better for it. 

On behalf of the class of 1923, I wish to thank you, the faculty of the Chi- 
cago College of Dental Surgery, for the privilege of associating with you and 
absorbing some of your brightness of color. Our life threads have become 
brighter because of the greater brilliancy of yours. Whatever cheerfulness we 
may bring to our portion of tapestry will be because of you. It is because of the 
brilliancy of your threads and the threads of men like you, who have given the 
best in their lives to teach and inspire others, that the tapestry of mankind is 
gradually becoming nearer and nearer perfection. 

To be taught is a wonderful privilege, to teach others is a still greater one. 
We wish you to know that the class of 1923 appreciates to the fullest extent how 
much you have brightened our lives. The only way we can ever repay you is to 
go forth to our destined bit of tapestry and emulate you by doing our little share 
in brightening our corners and thus be a credit to you, to our community, to 
our profession and to ourselves.

Maledictory Address 



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

It is with great pride and happiness that we, the Graduating Class of the 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery, celebrate tonight our Commencement. We 
are filled with joy which is followed in turn by sadness — joy, because the door 
of our chosen profession has been opened to us, and sadness, because we must 
bid some goodbye. Tomorrow we shall begin the real effort to carve out a 
career which will be a benefit to humanity and bring success to ourselves. 

We are the first post-war class, and have been assembled from many parts 
of the globe, for the Chicago College of Dental Surgery is well known on 
every continent. Foreign cities have given their students and in return Chicago 
is sending them home with every graduating class to guard and care for humanity. 
The greater service we render the public, the greater the reward and the more 
honored will be our profession. We hold the important position as guardian 
of the oral cavity, the principal portal of infection of the entire body, and we 
should guard it well. Let prophylaxis be the password. 

Gentlemen, society confers upon you the title of "Doctor," because you are 
to be honored for the knowledge you possess ; for the skilled care you are able 
to give mankind ; and for the aid you may give nature in molding a greater 
physical and intellectual man. Be sure that you fulfill your obligation. Be a 
man in reality, irrespective of rules. You must be ever ready to respond to 
the wants of your patrons, and should fully recognize the obligations involved 
in the discharge of your duties toward them. Be firm, yet kind and sympa- 
thetic, keeping both mind and body in the best possible health, that your patients 
may have the benefit of that clearness of judgment and skill which is their right. 

There is a crisis in every man's career. I pray you ward it off for your 
standard must always be progressive. If you stop to turn back you will soon 
deteriorate, and once you do so, you become a tombstone in the graveyard of 
self-satisfaction. To accomplish success you must continue to be students. Let 
this night be a true commencement. Let me impress this thought upon you 
that you are better prepared to enter your profession than any graduating class 
sent forth by the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, for it has been progressive*. 

We each have had four years' time in which to analyze ourselves. Many of 
us know tonight whether or not we will be failures in our profession. If you 
do not have confidence in yourself you cannot command confidence from others 
We all should have an ambition and after careful analysis of what we can do 
best we should direct all our energies toward that ambition. 

Dentistry has its rewards, and pays various dividends, but it offers no field for 
exploiting. Books are daily balanced and you may count that day lost whos 
low descending sun sees not by you some worthy action done. If this will 
satisfy the ambition, if you have contentment and a desire to serve rather tha. 
to acquire, Dentistry is a field that has few equals. 

And now we bid you farewell. To you, people of Chicago, we extend our 
hand with regret. We entered your city quietly but we celebrate our departure. 
We came untried and unlearned, but we leave disciplined.

1923 

Gentlemen of the Faculty : The future alone can tell how well, how faithfully 
you have labored in our behalf. We have relied upon your wisdom and guidance, 
here we have sought counsel and assistance from you who have ever been so 
able and willing to bestow it. Now we launch out with no one to aid us or 
guide our career. Our own hands must hold the rudder. If dark hours of 
defeat and failure come, we will bitterly rue the neglect with which we have 
met too many of your monitions ; and when the banner waves high and there 
are shouts of triumph, we will think of you and say that to you and to your 
wisdom and instruction we owe it all. 

Fellow Classmates : Our college days are now a memory. The door of our 
profession has allowed a great dazzling sun to enter, a deafening din and a 
great whirl of the busy world to bewilder us. If we are to win, we must labor 
for our success. Let the success of others ever be our stimulus. But now to 
say farewell fills every heart with awe ; let us forget the heart wounds of class 
rivalry and bear away the precious casket of our strong true love. Some of 
us will be among the absent at our next roll call but even so we are, and always 
will be, banded together by dear memories. I bid you a fond farewell. 

D. J. McCitlloiigh, Valedictorian.

Well, boys and girls, here we are at the end of our journey, or, will I say, at 
the start? Although we completed our scholastic career, we are just starting 
our profession ! 

Four years seems a long time to look forward to, but looking back, I guess 
we can all recall our first day in the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. . . . 

Opening exercises were held in the large amphitheater on Oct. 5th, 1919. 
Which one of us that night thought that after three and one-half years Dr. Puter- 
baugh would say that our class was the best senior class in ten years? That 
coming from Dr. Puterbaugh means something! 

We started out with quite a large class, some one hundred and forty-one 
students, including farmers, etc. What a spectacle we made with our trousers up 
to our knees and our hair cut round ! We sure looked the part of farmers ! The 
farm would have had a hard time trying to claim such sheiks as Tibbs and Stine 
as their own now. 

In our freshman year we had for our teachers : Drs. Danielson, Kendall, Sud- 
darth, Copeland and Mrs. Hoffman. It didn't take the students long to get a 
line on the teachers. 

Dr. Copeland was the first to try hard to keep us awake with his stories, but 
before the hour was up, three-quarters of the class was asleep. 

Next day we had Dr. Kendall. Well, just try to go to sleep in his class ! ! 
One of the boys did, and received a piece of chalk which was thrown with the 
speed of a Joe Miller. Dr. Kendall is death on sleep and ponies. 

Then instepped the old quizz master himself, Dr. Danielson. It looked as 
though he were sore at everybody in the room. Invariably he would start out 
with, "Well, Parker, what can you tell us about this — Not so good !" Dr. Daniel- 
son will long be remembered, because of the discovery made in his laboratory by 
one of our fellow students, Mr. Richardson. On this memorable morning, Rich- 
ardson discovered a new kind of Vasa-Vasorum, and startled the class by shout- 
ing his find. After looking at it, Dr. Danielson pronounced it an air bubble. 

We then were introduced to Dr. Suddarth with his jaw breakers. After his 
class, the boys would gather down in the basement and say : "Gee, what's that 
got to do with dentistry, anyhow?" 

Last, but not least, came Mrs. Hoffman trying to turn us "bolsheviks" into 
polished gentlemen. 



^D^ntos 




1923 

So our first year ended without seeing a natural tooth, except in our fellow 
students' mouths. On reaching home, we were asked by father, mother, sister 
and brother, what ought to be done about a certain tooth, and when we were 
unable to say, dad would look at ma and say : "I guess our son has been fooling 
his time away." 

Next came our Sophomore year. We started calling each other by our first 
names. Early in the year the class felt the need of class officers, so they elected : 
Bert McDonald, President ; Stine, Vice-President ; Sprafka, Editor ; Cayley, 
Sergeant-at-Arms. 

This year we had the pleasure of meeting Drs. Watt, Zoethout and Kolar. 

Dr. Watt taught us crown and bridge. My, how patient he was with us stu- 
dents ! ! His life was made miserable by the Seniors, who would borrow the 
laboratory hammer and forget to return it. Dr. Watt's hobby was honesty and 
farmers. Al Randall found this out, and, not being able to pose as a farmer, he 
became real honest. So honest, in fact, that when he wanted the Doctor to O.K. 
some work, he would pick up a buff wheel lying on the bench and tell him he 
found it. Dr. Watt would then rap for attention and say : "Just a minute, boys, 
one of our honest men in the class just found a buff wheel." Of course, Al 
received his O.K. 

Dr. Kolar tried to make blacksmiths and sculptors out of us. 

Dr. Zoethout — when I think of that name, my knees still shake. What a 
wonderful teacher he was ! The master of them all ! Well, if you couldn't get 
his stuff, you were out of luck. Ask Charley Ackerman, he knows ! 

About this time, Dr. Logan became Dean and made his presence felt. He 
meant business, and before we knew it, things began to happen. Much needed 
repairs, a cleaner school, and many new additions to make C. C. D. S. a better 
institution and its graduates better dentists, were accomplished, thanks to Dean 
Logan. After what we termed a "hard" year at school, we started home full of 
knowledge. 

The Junior roll-call revealed the absence of some of our last year's pals. 
Batzel and Pesch, we learned with deep sorrow, had passed away in the bloom 
of their youth. The "lanky" Bean found that dental sciences didn't agree with 
his tender constitution, so he left school for easier fields. Our "silent" Horowitz, 
enticed by the charms of Hollywood, transferred to Los Angeles to the great 
consternation of all the movie sheiks. Figenbaum suddenly discovered that the 
human mouth was too small for his mighty claws and left for his mechanical 
trade. 

Our Monday evening classes under Dr. C. N. Johnson will long be remem- 
bered as the most pleasant hours of Junior year. 

The following officers were elected: Randall, President; Stine, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Miss Gustafson, Secretary; Miss Mistarz, Treasurer; Pinns, Class Editor; 
Sherman and Morry, Editors of Dentos ; Cayley, Sergeant-at-Arms ; Melichar 
and O'Donoghue, Dentos Business Manager. 

An attempt was made to put over a class dance, but it failed, so three frater- 
nities (Xi Psi Phi, Delta Sigma Delta and Psi Omega) joined and held a dance 
at the West Side Women's Club. This dance was proclaimed a success by all 
who attended. 

At the end of this year, a great exodus took place. Many members of our 
class found it advisable to move "quarters," and transferred to other colleges. 
So we had to bewail the departure of many of our popular "studs." Solodovnick, 
Talmy and Greenberg left for Cincinnati to dazzle the "Westerners" with their 
profound knowledge of dentistry. Curry and Horrigan rushed to Kansas City 



itOSi 



to become assistants to Dr. McGee, he of immortal fame. Baynon and Madge 
decided to take a year's vacation to regain their mental equilibrium. Fillinger, 
Militz and Vitullo startled the class by announcing their intention to specialize 
on the Junior points for another year, defending their rather radical step by 
quoting the age-honored proverb: Haste make waste! They are still "special- 
izing" on their junior points, by the way. 

On October 5th, 1921, our junior school year began, but most of us began 
earl)'', because we were anxious to try out the white coats. Say, fellows, will you 
ever forget the first prophylaxis? My patient was bleeding like a stuck hog. 
I guess most of us felt like giving up dentistry then and there. 

This was the year of years. We were working on real, live, honest-to-good- 
ness patients. Then we met the much talked of P. G. It was hard to believe 
that the big, smiling man that greeted us with that smile when we were Freshies 
and Sophs, was going to be as hard as the Seniors tried to make us believe he 
was. Nevertheless we had all the respect in the world for P. G. when in the 
infirmary. It is his business to teach dentistry and he can sure teach it. 

Now for our Senior year. Work, work, work, and how the time flies ! You 
look at the number of points posted, and you work, work, work some more ! How- 
ever, it is pleasant. It is your life's work, and the more you do at school, the 
easier it will be out in practice. 

We all take out time for coffee, and get the dope from Sprafka. I used to 
think he "knocked" around with Dr. Logan. 

Here it is 9 A. M. Monday morning. Seven pencils sharpened and a fresh 
note book. In walks Dr. Logan, who tells us to be pessimists to the end, and 
work hard. It is gratifying to know that the pledge made by Dr. Logan and the 
rest of the Faculty — to give us a better course than ever before — has been ful- 
filled. So, the year ends with everyone planning to become a Logan, Brophy or 
Buckley. May we all succeed in our endeavors in the future, as we succeeded 
in the past, to the glory of our beloved Alma Mater — the grand old C. C. D. S. 

— W . J . Parker, Class Historian of '23.

Like the fragrance of a flozver long forgotten that you've gathered when a child; 
Like the beauty of the meadow that you've danced upon with joy, -when a child 
Come the memories of the friends, of the hearts that you have gained, long ago. 

So on a beautiful June day in the tranquility of a bower in a garden full 
of magnificent flora, I called forth vivid recollections of my College days, and 
like the fragrance of a flower long forgotten, come the memories of my class- 
mates as I turned the pages of the "Dentos" and pondered over the likeness 
of each fellow-friend of the class of 1923. "What a long time has elapsed since 
that memorable date," I mused. When, though a whisper, then, a sigh from the 
flowers around me I heard, "Twenty years." Yes, twenty long years have 
elapsed since that recorded year. It is now June 5, 1943. An eventful day, and 
an eventful year. Just then a screeching, scratching sound made me start and 
frightened away my musings like butterflies away from a blossom. Why, that's 
my radio tuning in, then — "The B. U. R. Station, Chicago. . . . All the 
Alumni of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery of the year 1923, are requested 
to gather for a reunion to celebrate the laying of the corner stone for a new 
college building. Celebration to be held at four o'clock in the afternoon, June 
the 5th, 1943. All meet at the corner of Harrison and Wood streets. 

"Third day — last call." 

So! Broadcasted for the third day? How fortunate of me to get this last 
call. What glad news ! How happy I shall be, to be there and meet all my friends. 

But I had only two hours in which to make one thousand miles. Quickly 
I grasped my radio-scope and peered into it, but all I could see were concen- 
trated masses moving through space in the direction of the Alma Mater. I ren- 
dered final inspection to my ever-ready motorless, collapsible monoplane, hopped 
into it, and up into the clouds, and away I went. 

As I neared Chicago I then discerned that what appeared to be linked 
mobile masses, were Alumni from every direction and all parts of the globe, in 
every form of aerial, terrestial and subterranean vehicle and conveyance, hasten- 
ing: to the rendezvous. 






67 



tos 



I was unable to recognize any of my co-travelers owing to the great speed 
at which I "sailed" the air. Of course, I had to retard my speed in Chicago, 
but my attention then was called to better control of my plane. 

At last I arrived at the aerial station above the C. C. D. S. There a stout, 
sturdy, important looking director, slightly bald and with a Van Dyck beard, 
wearing a guide's badge, vociferated the directions, to travel south until our 
compasses registered five miles south by two miles east off the point known as 
the southeast corner of Harrison and Wood streets. 

A similar looking guide, minus the baldness and the Van Dyck beard, had 
been stationed on the street at the entrance to the college, upon a raised platform, 
giving direction to the land travelers. 

Eventually I reached that intersection, and as I was flying low to make a 
landing, the panorama presented from above was that of an extensive, some- 
what wooded area, the greater half of which had been countersunk. This, I later 
discovered, was an excavation with concrete foundations already laid. After 
I had folded my monoplane in a hand bag carried for that purpose, and checked 
it in a long booth extending along the sidewalk, on the site (the non-collapsible 
conveyances were parked in a parking space submerged in under the sidewalk), 
I then began to explore. 

The entire area chosen was a block square, away from the hubbub of the 
industrial section of the city, but a choice location near a university, a medical 
school, near two hospitals, and provided with good transportation, both surface 
and subway. A greater half of this space was to be under an extensive, spacious 
three story, strictly modern, artistic architectural structure, for which the corner- 
stone was being laid today, the remaining portion of the ground to be reserved 
as the College campus. Hurrah ! 

Then excitement and chaos ceased ; the mass of humanity had concentrated 
at one corner of the foundation. The ceremony was opened by the chairman of 
the new building committee, a dignified, somewhat bald, gray-bewiskered, corpu- 
lent celebrity, who delivered a valuable oratorical address to the assembly and 
pointed out the marvelous growth of that institution, the urgent demand for 
a modern, more spacious edifice befitting its aggrandized knowledge and fame, 
and the necessity for a College campus where the youth in attendance, engaged in 
the making of that fame, could give vent to its potential spirit and dynamic 
energy, and by a means of cultivating the College spirit, which under the old 
regime had been likened to a caged bird with its wings clipped. Therefore 
the campus was an adjunct to the new school. 

Such a volley of cheers was emitted by the gathered throng, that the seismo- 
graph of the Chicago University registered earthquake in its vicinity. When 
at length the animation of the crowd had ceased, forward stepped two honorary 
hodcarriers in the persons of William Lynch and William Zimmer, bringing 
the mortar which was then used in the placing of the cornerstone by our 
inspiration and guiding light through College days, Dr. C. N. Johnson. In his 
short speech he expressed his happiness and gratitude at being able to see the 
day when his boys and girls displayed such loyalty, and to be able to assist in erect- 
ing a temple to the profession for his boys and girls. 

( I must note here that women graduates have helped to brandish the torch 
of glory of the College and under a new rule have been admitted to the C. C. D. S.) 

The ceremony being at a close, the same aforesaid stentorian guide made an 
announcement that the concourse in general was invited to make a survey of 
the site, and its surroundings, that anniversary classes were to hold banquets that 
evening, that the class of 1923 especially was invited to a reunion and anni- 
versary banquet at 8 o'clock that evening in the old banquet hall.

There I found myself at the hour appointed, but the excitement of the 
anticipated meeting with my dear friends had blurred my vision and made 
my head fairly swim. 

As my vision became clearer and I gazed around, I seemed to enter the 
Cimmerian glooms again. 

Is this somewhat bewiskered, grizzly, bald, rotund, dignified and prosperous 
looking congregation the youthful, slim, sprightly, jocund seniors of 1923? 

So it is. Just hear those joyous shouts of welcome, see the warm hand- 
clasps of friendship, embraces of friends long absent, and the tears of joy. As I 
stand there and gaze, with a new spirit entering my soul (for I have a soul), 
a new light kindling in my eyes, I see two figures running toward me crying, 
"Hello, Anna !" Their arms soon encircle around the bewildered me. Well, 
if they aren't my dear, dear Elsie Gustafson and Mary Burke. Instantly I am 
borne away on the wings of Time, back to the days of 1923. So Elsie, fair Elsie, 
has hastened thither from the side of her "Lohengrin" and a tour through 
Sweden, where, having retired from active practice and devoted herself to philan- 
thropy, she was establishing dental institutions and children's clinics. 

And Mary, my big sister Mary, has become superintendent of the Children's 
Municipal Infirmary of Chicago. How dignified and professional their mien, 
but not a day older do they appear. 

We were then escorted to the table by the same aforementioned guide, but — 
Oh ! glory be ! for it's Grover Sprafka and his partner, the jovial Wallace Parker. 
The first is now president and the later, treasurer of the "Excelsior" Tooth 
Paste Company. Sprafka now divides his time between the tooth paste concern 
and the golf links. Parker is still practicing dentistry. 

After all were seated at the table the babel soon ceased, for at the head of 
the table stood no one else but the dignified chairman of the day and president 
of the Senior Class of 1923, Bert McDonald, a successful practitioner of Chicago, 
a member of many dental organizations and quite a celebrity, who addressed 
those present with words of welcome. He then introduced the dean of a western 
college of dentistry, Joe Sherman, as next speaker. Sherman has not added any 
to his girth but has acquired a more penetrating, compelling eye, and dignified 
bearing, one befitting a dean. To my right I had the president of the Western 
Dental Association, a distinguished personage and a well known oral surgeon, 
Arnold Pinns. My eyes fairly beamed as I glanced across the table at the gray, 
suave, respect-demanding participant, "Uncle" John Podwojski, a prominent 
plate specialist of St. Louis, now a member of the faculty in the college of which 
Joe Sherman is dean. Beside him sat his colleague, a dentist and a ranchman 
of Texas. Pawelek, a prosperous, business-like, grizzly and slightly bald gentle- 
man, occupied in an animated conversation, turned and rose to answer my 
salutation, and at the same time flashed a large diamond upon the small finger 
of his left hand ; Lon N. Morrey, head of a dental supply company of Obio, with 
branches all over the United States. His conversers were the same, little changed 
in appearance, Ivan Stah! and Leon B. Wessel of Michigan, both known for 
their joint work and study on the preliminary diagnosis and the prevention of 
pyorrhea of systemic origin. Paul Brederle, James Casey, of Wisconsin, and 
F. De Wesse, of Michigan, were explaining to Morrey the working principles of 
Casey's new dental unit, which they were interested in getting on the market. 
Who is Miss Gustafson shaking hands with so fervently? Oh, yes, Mat Hoff- 
man, of Canada, specialist in exodontia and minor oral surgery. And then 
there's another Canadian of such placid, unassuming ways, but a deep thinker, 
Horace Cornwell, now of California, enjoying a condign primacy in the dental 
profession as a result of eighteen years of devoted study and research which

he concluded by proving his theory that dental cases may be diagnosed before- 
hand by blood analysis and its chemistry, and prevented by proper diet. A. 
Handler has become an asset to Canada's glory as a dental pathologist. French 
Canadian, J. L'Heureux, has retired from the practice of dentistry and has 
given himself to extensive travel and various expeditions. 

Sounds of an assevarate discussion reached my ears and, turning in that 
direction, I came upon John Sweetnam of southern California, a gold foil expert 
of high repute, discussing with George Casserly the merits of Casserly's new 
discovery, a result of ten years of experimenting, an esthetic easily manipulated 
filling material, a semi-liquid metal-phospho-silicate, which, when applied to the 
cavity in the presence of saliva, extracts the calcium content of it and enters 
for a limited depth into chemical combination with the tooth structure, forming 
a homogenous iso-chromatic, non-soluble, non-irritating filling material more 
durable than porcelain or gold. This debate called the attention of a well known 
Washington State ceramodontist, Dow Gregg, who maintained that his porcelain 
inlays, which, when the powder was mixed with his discovered liquid, would 
behave like wax and could be removed like the wax patterns, baked without 
altering its contour or composition. George Nicholls and C. Schuyler, progressive 
dentists of Illinois, highly recommended the technique and the material. 

These expostulations were suddenly interrupted by the precipitation of 
S. Davitz upon the group, who strongly advocated the use of his marvelous 
mouth wash, the qualities of which were attributed to the checking of dental 
caries, revival of dead pulps, and the filling of cavities in the teeth by stimulat- 
ing the dentinal tubules to send out anastomosing fibres, in the meshes of which 
the entangled food particles are then petrified, thus forming an automatic restora- 
tion, whereupon Sam Kleiman, A. Corn and I. Vorob corroborated Davitz' asser- 
tion and recommended its use from their experiences, Kleiman and I. Vorob in the 
dark Congo of Africa ; Corn, in the congested ghetto of Chicago. 

I noticed that the atmosphere of the banquet hall in the proximity of that 
group became somewhat electrically charged, nearing the point of sparking 
when — where and when have I heard that refrain before? "Sweet Adeline, 
Won't You Be Mine." Off at the opposite end of the room I see a jubilant 
grpup, as happy and elated as the day of graduation — T. Ross Cayley, Jiggs 
O'Donoghue, J. P. Miller. "Bill" Abrahams. "Red" Stine and Maurice Smith. 
Cayley has just announced the opening of his seashore resort for tired dentists 
on the Hawaiian Islands, where O'Donoghue was to be curator of a vast collec- 
tion of tankards, flagons, flasks, etc., now obsolete. J. P. Miller worked hard 
as a dentist, and now, being in need of rest and recreation, has proclaimed him- 
self for his favorite sport, "water polo," while his partner, Abrahams, made 
arrangements with the host for "surf riding" on the Atlantic. Stine. who 
was enjoying a prosperous practice in Ohio, and M. Smith, being good all 
around sports, promised to take part in the summer excursion to the Hawaiian 
shores. 

Barely had the syncopated sounds rent the air, when a general commo- 
tion was caused by the entrance of a character from the "Arabian Knights," 
with exclamations of " 'Tis the technique, it's very easy" ! Lo and behold ! the 
sheik in his glory, for there entered Mohammed Sulaiman in his native costume 
of a royal dentist with a turban of surah upon his head, a bright, keen yataghan 
dangling at his side, and a huge scarab suspended from a gold chain on his 
neck, a gift from the High Prince of India and endowed with certain mystic 
powers (as mystic and colorful as India) ; when rubbed over his three passenger 
Persian rug it would impart to the rug power and volition to operate as a 
monoplane and convey its occupants to their destiny.

So it happened that Harmidas Etu and Thomas Tripet, sailing the Indian 
Ocean as naval dentists on a United States warship, received the message from a 
radio outfit stationed abaft the binnacle. They obtained immediate leave of 
absence, and joined Sulaiman at Calcutta as two sahibs. At the same time there 
entered a white-clad helmeted figure, typical of tropical sartorial diction, agitat- 
ing the air about his physiognomy with a huge palm leaf fan — Cecil Hayes, the 
exalted dentist of the Bahama Islands. The belated guests occupied their 
respective places at the table, in immediate proximity of somnolent Clarence 
Rose, a subsidiary to Miss Burke at the Municipal clinic, who made a sudden 
start to talk, but was frightened by the abrupt interruption, out of his oblivion. 

The newcomers were soon approached by Sam Chadwick and Max Pincus. 
Chadwick being quite a mechanical dentist has manufactured an automatic 
inlay carver, which was rapidly gaining a market. 

Pincus, the light-footed dentist of Chicago, urged the Eurasian to read 
his latest pamphlet on "How to Collect Your Fees from Your Patients." 

At the moment the general excitement was vanquished by the debut of the 
savory and nutrient products of the culinary art, which for a spell held the 
attention of the happy congregation. I heard words of predilection for the 
European kitchen and upon investigation found out that Henry Melichar, James 
Kloboucnik, Harry Saposnik and P. G. Luomons were discussing this subject 
and partaking of the viands with seeming gusto. Melichar and Kloboucnik 
have just returned from a lecture tour through Bohemia, and in honor of their 
good will and work, they received the degree of M. D. from the University of 
Prague. H. Saposnik became a well known dentist of Kijow, Russia. Luomons 
is professor of prosthetics at the University of Vilna, Lithuania, where M. Zilvitis 
delivers his diurnal lectures by radio upon various subjects in dentistry. Zilvitis 
has retired from active practice. 

The table occupied by the aforesaid surely had interesting groups, for there 
sat Russel Tibbs, Harry Winner, H. Selevold, Herman Nare and William Luety, 
who have hastened here from their hunting trip through the jungles of Africa 
and were heading for those of India next. 

Herm, Joe Pavlin and Hill, have been to the Klondike, just for a visit, 
they said. Herm has become a South Dakota "tiller of the soil.'' They limited 
his practice to four hours a day. 

At the next table, and just behind me, I heard cries of "Fore ! Nineteenth" ! 
Charles Ackerman, a very capable dentist and clinician of Chicago, and presi- 
dent of the Blue Ridge Golf Club, was divulging the secrets of making a suc- 
cessful drive to the new members of his club. David McCullough, associate 
professor of Crown and Bridge at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. 
Charles Tyl, Elmer Ebert of Chicago, and Rudolph Mahns of Gary, Indiana, 
were all engaged in active practice, lured by the long greens. 

At the head of that table sat Maurice Galpern, a poet and author of many 
papers on recent dental problems, such as "Inoculation of Children Against 
Dental Caries." His wide and thorough study have won him prestige as one of 
Chicago's foremost dentists. About him were Max Andelman of New York 
City, and J. Schafer of Chicago, both enjoying a wide practice and who were 
adherents of Galpern's theories. 

My attention was called to a somewhat stooped, bespectacled figure, with 
his hands engaged in a forcefull downward movement from the ridge of his 
upper jaw. It was A. Cohn, struggling in an attempt to remove the full upper 
denture made by Bernard Baygood's new technique. Baygood has made a new 
palateless denture which maintains its position in the mouth by means of gold 
springs which traverse the small bulk of plate material, from the buccal aspect 



^D^ntos 






1923 



of the first bicuspid and second molar to the palatal or lingual surface of the 
jaw ridge. The buccal ends of the springs terminate in small pedals, which 
are pressed upon by the muscles of mastication when in use, thus causing the 
opposite or lingual end which terminates in a concave disc, to be pushed against 
and temporary adhere to the tissues, thus strongly retaining the plate in position. 

Joseph Noskin, S. Needelman, M. Goldberg and I. Vorob became interested 
in Baygood's new technique and decided to experiment with it in their practice 
to verify its merit and technicality. This did not fail to attract the wary Joe 
Hirsch and Lawrence Schlocker, joint partners and proprietors of a series of 
dental parlors and laboratories. Hirsch headed the prosthetic departments and 
Schlocker the operative departments. In the first department J. Lebow and 
Ben Parlin were evincing their skill and knowledge as chief technicians in the 
latter, M. Sapoznik and Robin were head operators. A. Miller had charge of 
the finances, while Seymour Goldberg acted as barrister and chief advisor. 

I scanned the assembly, and at the farthest end of the room I beheld the 
ever-courteous Horace Hague, a busy dentist of Ohio. 

A staccato expulsion of merriment resounded from that end, for there was 
F. Kochanski, the source of that mirth, expounding to John Jakubski, Pere 
Frysztak, Al Gogolinski and B. Knitter detailed incidents of optimistic charac- 
ter occurring in his practice in Detroit, Mich. His practice was largely com- 
posed of various retired athletes. Frysztak has become a plate specialist. Young- 
spirited Jakubski was enjoying a prosperous practice in Pennsylvania. Gold foil 
was his hobby. Al Gogolinski is now professor of exodontia at the C. C. D. S. 
and has accredited to his merit the rotary forceps for single-rooted teeth. 
B. Knitter headed the dental department of the Catholic Orphanage of Chicago. 

Technical words describing a new X-ray machine reached my auditory appa- 
ratus. Sam Simon was describing to Carl Geffert, E. Lux and V. Sweeney the 
latest invention of Sigtenhorst, a chromo-ray or the new "C" ray machine, 
closely allied to the "N" or Beckerell ray. The entire outfit was no larger than 
a cigar box, with a single, thin ramification. Simon has become a promotor 
for the new invention, being an eminent Roentgenologist and diagnostician. Carl 
Geffert established himself successfully in California. Sweeney became a prom- 
inent orthodonist of Michigan. Clifford Delling of New Mexico declared the 
new invention to be the ideal ray in his aseptic root-fill technique. 

As the festivity and merrymaking was nearing a close, well-clad and sprightly 
Otto Isaac rose and announced that in our midst we had great men and to give 
three cheers for Hon. C. Randall, the senator from New York. Such a huzzah 
ensued, that the loud cheers and wild gesticulations of H. Kaulen and W. Keller 
made me think of the happy days at the C. C. D. S. 

Randall has entered politics after ten years in the profession, and has rap- 
idly gained popularity. 

As soon as the elated spirit of the congregation had subsided, there rose a 
suave, sedate ecclesiastic, Wm. Russel, who for a short time was dentist of 
the Georgia State prison and now was its chaplain. He decided that he could 
do more reform work than repair teeth. Russel cited from his observations, that 
many a genius and wonder was incarcerated in the members of the class of 
1923, and that in some it was only half awakened and needed just such a day 
as this to spur them unto greater heights ; that the good word and influence of 
our former teachers has fallen upon fertile ground. 

A calmness fell upon the audience, and then, among the sidereal scintillations, 
loomed the names of our inspirations and guiding lights since College days, 
some of whom we had the honor to have with us as our guests today. And ere 
we dispersed, words of encouragement and admonition were poured into our 



72 






















1923 




hearts and minds by our former teachers — Johnson, Logan, etc. And as wc 
started on our way back, we took with us the power, the constancy and solid- 
ity that has guided us in our successes and led us and shall lead us on in the 
sign of our motto : "Labor Ipse Volnptas." 

Anna L. Mistarz, Class Prophet. 

Sweet Memories 

When all's been said, and all's been dune, 

And Graduation's over ; 
When College strife's forever gone, 

And we our breath recover 
From rushing weeks of strain and stress, 
And worry, and distress ; 

Then past events of College life — 

Some humorous, some "fierce," 
Will fleet throughout our mind, so rife 

With memories of years, 
And bring to us for time to last, 
The glories of the past. 

We'll live again the years of yore, 

The years that seemed so long ; 
The Freshman and the Sophomore, 

(The years, when all looked wrong) ; 
Then Junior and Senior year. 
The years of worried, deadly fear. 

And like bright stars in darkened skies 

Enlightening our way, 
And leading us to where there lies 

The world so free and gay — 
We'll see OUR STARS of that last year— 
The LADIES whom our thoughts hold dear. 

Behind that register there reigns 

Miss Flynn, the golden-hearted, 
Dispensing gold in tiny grains 

And smiles — in tons uncarted — 
For kindness rules her gentle soul, 
And, b'sides, she LOVES us all ! 

Miss Wyneken is also there, 

Assisting all she can ; 
A busy woman, we'll declare, 

She works enough for ten, 
Yet never fails to do her work — 
She's not the kind her task to shirk ! 

Can we forget the asepsis tray, 

That drove us 'most to the grave ? 
And Mrs. Delling, trim and gay, 

So patient and so brave 
In facing all our bungling ways 
And yet so kind through all those days ! !

Just next to her 's the X-ray room 

With Mrs. Long in charge ; 
The one that often held our doom 

In root-fills — small or large ; 
The one who never tired to do 
A favor kind for me and you ! 

Going down, way downstairs, 

We meet a lovely girl forsooth 
Surrounded with her phones and chairs 

Is Mrs. Wessel's popular booth 
From where SHE issues tuneful calls 
Through all the Labs, through all the Halls ! 

And just a couple of steps away 

We find "OUR" Mrs. Priestley, 
Who gently trips there every day 

And gives us platework "ghastly," 
Or mildly chides us for delays 
In dearly, calm, maternal ways ! ! 

But, lo ! who is that phantom sweet 

A -blooming like a rose? 
So cute, so winsome, ever neat, 

Our antidote for woes ? 
'Tis Miss R. Theiler, shyly droll 
Who lends the grim gas room a soul. 

Let's now go up and take a peep 

In at our office force ! 
Miss Wittman's there in slips neck deep — 

She checks us up, of course ; 
She checks our points, our marks, our grades, 
In fact, she renders countless aids. 

And lending her a skillful hand, 

Avoiding any fame. 
There toils a lady true and grand — 

Miss Dickenson 's her name. 
With manners stately, and genteel — 
A friend of all, we rightly feel ! 

They've all been friends, they've all been kind, 

They've strived with all their might 
That none of us should fall behind, 

That all should win the "fight," 
Just like the dears, that they all are, 
Kind souls, indeed, away 'bove par. 

So let us keep them in our minds, 

Keep them there forever, 
Never, never to forget, 

Ever to remember. 
As OUR STAR of that last year, 
OUR LADIES SWEET AND DEAR! ! ! . . . 

— M. Galpern.

To PROGRESS day bv day ; 

To follow the MASTERS GREAT 
In ev'ry human way !

To make our hands CREATE, 

Of fortune's pleasant tasks to reap 
The best rewards of fate. 

To try; to fail; BUT NOT TO RUE! 
To try AGAIN, and SCORE ! ! 

To do the BEST we e'er could do, 

And then to try some MORE! 

To minister with best of skill 
To ailing man or child ; 

To HELP the sick, to EASE the ill, 

To make this life WORTH WHILE!! 

To try; to DO; and to ACHIEVE; 
To climb, and scale the HILL! 

Has been our goal and BELIEF 

For which we are striving still. 

SO MAY WE EVER DO OUR BEST, 
DO but what is RIGHT! 

Ever find in work our rest, 

Our PLEASURE and DELIGHT ! ! !

The College Foil smith 

By M. A. Galpern ("Rab") 















***With humble apologies to Longfellow's "Village Blacksmith," 
this parody is intended to describe most tenderly the Star of Foilmen 
of the Class of 1923, the redoubtable "foil-socker" J. ("Jingle") 
NOSKIN!!! 

At a chair (an OLD RELIC of dentistry) 

The Star of Foilmen stands. 

The Star — a scrawny man is he, 

With small perspiring hands 

And muscles on his tender arms 

As strong as rubber bands ! 

His hair is a-ramble, and looks like a net; 

His face is blazing forth; 

His brow is wet with drops of sweat, 

He swears for all he's worth ! 

Or, looking on his patient's face, 

He laughs with bitter mirth ! ! 

His temples — they throb, and his pulses boil, 

His body is bent and tense, 

For (mind you), he'll make a most beautiful foil 

That'd throw C. N. in a trance 

And set the Class with wonder a-reel 

At his masterful foil "socking" skill! 

So away he works throughout the morn' 

Inspired with hopes of glory ; 

He drills and cuts with stone and bur 

A-rushing and in a hurry, 

For the simple case he chose so well 

IsM-O-D-B-L!!! 

He goes at noon to Dudley's Grill 

And takes another chance : 

He eats some antediluvian veal 

That knocks him at once in a trance : 

In which he sees a heart-rending vision — 

He's lost his foil cohesion! 

The Star nigh faints at such a dream, 

Back to his chair he jumps, 

He starts again with zest and vim, 

Again his back he humps, 

And plugs away the rest of the day 

Condensing the foil for an "A." 

For hours and hours, from twelve to four, 

You can hear his mallet blow, 

And pound, and strike, and then pound some more, 















91 




^)entos\ 



1923 






Now medium-fast, now slow; 

While his patient gags, and chokes to death, 

And pleads: "Oh, let me go!" 

Now and then he strikes the dam 

And tears it into shreds; 

Or "socks" away with bang and slam, 

Till patient "coma" gets, 

When our Star, his face a-ghast, 

Runs 'round with mien distressed ! 

Jealous classmates pass to and fro 
And gloat over his plight ; 
They like to see the Star in woe, 
To tease him left and right, 
And hear the spicy curses fly 
Like dust beneath a stormv sky ! 












The Star — he curses with wicked words 

Enough to shock a . . . . Saint ; 

He strains his lungs and vocal cords 

To prove 'tis merely a faint ; 

That the patient's well, that all is fine, 

That, surely, he'll get a "nine!" 






He uses Ammonia-water and such, 
Cold applications (or either) ; 
He tilts his chair to serve as a couch ! 
He uses, at last, some Ether, 
Until the patient opens his eyes, 
Groans a curse, or sighs ! 






It sounds to o'r Star like C. N.'s voice 
Praising him to skies, 
He needs must think of prizes choice, 
Of how he'll beat th' other guys, 
And with his perspiring hand he wipes 
A tear of joy off his eyes ! ! ! 

The foil is finished at half past four, 
It's trimmed, and brightly shines; 
The Star his patient drags o'er the floor 
(The victim, nigh dead, just whines !) 
And shows to C. N. the fruit of his toil — 
The ultra-magnificent foil ! 

With critical eyes the foil is explored, 
The contact point and all — 
And then there comes the final word : 
"My boy, you beat 'em all!" 
When our Star, his face a-gay, 
Marches in glory away. 















^Dentos 

1923 



Drilling, cutting, pounding, 
Onward through School he goes ! 
Trimming, grinding, rounding, 
O'ercoming all his woes, 
Each morning sees some foil begun, 
Each evening sees it done ! 

Great glory's yours, oh, Foilman blessed 
For the wonder foils you get in ! 
Thus on "rotten" teeth quite fast 
Your pocket-book will fatten, 
Thus on foul mouths you 
Will raise a fortune true ! ! !

Speaking of various rashes, we simply must mention the fact, that some of the 
Seniors have "idiopathic" types which are hard to diagnose. One does not know, 
if the rash upon the upper lip takes after their favorite sport — baseball or football, 
according to the number of hairs; or if the color takes after their favorite drink, 
such as the milk-white, or the red, or the coffee stained! Farmers stick to the 
product of the soil, and so we find that Kloboucnik boasts a light-CORN silk 
growth under his nose.

On a Beautiful Thursday Morning

The Seniors are trained 
Through misery and toil, 
The mastery of foil, 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 

The eager gang is off ! 
(There's work ahead enough) 
So all the wheels they turn, 
All alcohol they burn 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 

What faces queer, my God, 
You'd see if you would stop 
To watch the toiling bunch 
That drill, and grind, and punch 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 

There's Saposnik Harry 
The man who would not tarry 
To pound MOD's 
With very little fizz 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 



"I'm telling you," he says, 
"I doubt if it pays 
To dispute rotten luck 
Whenever you get stuck 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 

"Rab" with his illusions 
Sticks out his protrusion, 
(It's really a retrusion 
Avoid we must confusion) 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 



The patient he tells 
Of tissues and of cells, 
Of properties of gold, 
(If crystalline or rolled — ) 

On a beautiful Thursday morning. 

He pounds and he lectures 
Till mandible he fractures, 
He pounds then some more 
Till the patient starts to roar

Jaffe Bob, the Giant,

Poor Bob — he swears and scolds, 
His stubby thumbs he folds, 
Reducing for his patient 
Th' bilateral dislocation

What's matter? What's wrong? 
Why's patient's face so long?

Poor Charlie gets right busy, 
Puts aside his "Lizzie,"

SLIPS THAT COUNT 
Fascinated, 
I watched, 
Eyes glued on her. 
Years ago, 

My nerves had been shattered 
By the slipping of a ribbon. 
Was it 

To occur again? 
Fascinated, I watched: 
It slipped 
Over her shoulder. 
Every thing slipped. 
Down — down ! 
My heart stopped; 
Hers did not. 
Calmly 
She slipped the ribbon back.

MY SOLUTION 
Educated well and good, 

Both morally and bookedly, 
I could not make a livelihood, 

but crookedly. 

And so this way I've always solved 

the thing, 
Though work would hurt me frightfully, 
I find that I can leaf, by jinks ! 

Much more delightfully.

IV hen It Rains 

(A Damp, Depressing Ditty) 

The world looks dark and dismal 

When it rains. 
Your troubles seem abysmal 

When it rains. 
Your friends all want to borrow, 
And you don't care if tomorrow 
Never comes to end your sorrow 

When it rains. 

You lose your best umbrella, 

When it rains. 
And you have a row with Ella 

When it rains. 
Or, perhaps her name is Mollie, 
Lucy, Fanny, Margie, Dolly, 
But she'll make you melancholy 

When it rains. 

Life seems hardly worth the living 

When it rains. 
And the women — Holy Moses ! 
How they sneeze and rub their noses, 
For the time of all their woe is 

When it rains.

Patient — "You must have struck my back collar button."

SONG TO DUDLEY'S CAFETERIA 
By James Casey 
Tell me not in mournful numbers 
That the baked beans are all gone, 
For I'm fairly faint with hunger, 
I've been pounding foil for so long. 
Give me, please, I pray thee give me 
Just one good and unbent spoon ; 
Give me, rent me, loan me, buy me, 
One straight fork with prongs unbent. 

Place a tray of beans and 'taters, 

On the narrow arm of one of these uncertain chairs 

Let me seat myself beside it, 

Then depart and leave me happy 

Eating Dudley's beans and pie.

For Freshmen Only 

Most amiable and gullible freshie, 

Fired with high ambition. 

Inspired with lofty ideals ; 

Just entering college — hark to these words ; 

Some sultry day next June 

When you board the train for home, 

You may sit next to a girl 

Who doesn't mind the heat; 

Whose elbow never jabs between 

Your sixth and seventh ribs — 

Whose conversation never stales, 

And whose hair stays in place; 

Whose temper is as sweet 

At the end of the journey 

As in the beginning. 

If you meet such a girl, freshie, 

Then do yourself proud; 

Grab her — marry her, 

You'll never be sorry. 

But never mind, for after all 

You won't meet her, because 

It is a most regrettable fact 

That she doesn't exist 

And probably 

Never will. M. J. H.

AULD LANG SYNE 
Do you remember the west side, Cornwell, 
West side of that wide open town, 
Where sorrow grew pale as with foot on the rail, 
We coated our tongues a dark brown ? 

Now the west side is naught but a graveyard Cornwell, 
And the sign that once set us aquiver, 
"Hennessey," "Hunter," "Three X" and "Old Crow," 
Now bleat of near beer and "Green River." 



STUMBLING 
Malleting all around, Malleting all around, 
Malleting all around that filling, 
Malleting here and there, 
Malleting everywhere. 
And I must declare 
I built that filling up beautifully, 
I took it in to C. N. 
I felt proud 

And told him that was my very best. 
That's my very best, 
That's my very best, 
Doctor Johnson. 

Notice all the contour, Notice all the polish, Notice all the condensation. 
He said, "My boy, that's beautiful." 
"I like it just a little bit, just a little bit, quite a little bit." 



PERFECT DAY 
When you come to the end of a perfect day, 

And you sit alone with your thoughts, 
When the points come out and say 

How well that mouth you've worked. 
Do you think what the end of a perfect day 

Can mean to every tired son? 
When the sun goes down with a naming ray 

And our diploma we've won. 



HE DIDN'T KNOW WITH WHOM HE WAS SPEAKING 
The third section of the Senior Class and Dr. Logan enjoyed a good laugh one 
Tuesday afternoon at the Cook County Hospital Clinic. A patient from whose 
lower lip Dr. Logan had removed a carcinoma two weeks previously, presented 
himself for examination. After explaining the operation to the class, Dr. Logan 
asked the patient how he was feeling 

He answered. "I am feeling fine, doctor, and I asked some one who knows 
about this here work, and he said it was a good job." 






Doctor — "I suppose you have trouble in the joints." 
Mike — "Quite often — I was thrown out of one last night."

LISTEN! 
If you want to belong to the kind of a school 

That's the kind of a school you like, 
Don't go pack your clothes in a grip 

And start on a long, long hike. 
You'll find elsewhere what you left behind, 

'Cause there's nothing that's very new. 
It's knock at yourself when you knock at your school, 

For it isn't vour school — it's you. 




NIX 
You sing a little song or two, 

You have a little chat, 
You make a little candy fudge, 

And then you take your hat ; 
You hold her hand and say good bye, 

As sweetly as you can. 
Oh, ain't this a wondrous evening, 

For a great big healthy man?

Tell me not in cheerful numbers, 
Life is all it used to be. 
Tell me not that my thirst slumbers,

There's no solace far or near. 
Once I, too, was gay and mopeless, 
That was e'er they served near beer.

Museum of Pathological Monstrosities 

Collected and Edited by 
M. A. Galpern ("RAB"). 

* * * The unusual cases herewith recorded have been observed, 
examined and studied during the year of '22-'23, spent by the author 
among a tribe of candy-bals called "Seniors." The new and much 
in vogue among these savages, "Macro-goggle" was used in slide 
study with . . . heart-breaking success. The diagnosis was 
arrived at chiefly by means of percussion with a . . . sledge- 
hammer ; ausculation ... by Radio ; and gentle palpitation by 
. . . armored fists. The result of the treatment recommended 
was very gratifying as all but one case cleared out . . . for 
Hades. 

The Editor. 



Case No. I — Plasmodium Catarrhalis LUOMONS-enia. 

Diagnosis: Incontinence of . . . Speech. 

Symptoms: Excessive garrulity, arising spontaneously and unprovoked. 
The patient becomes restless, jumps to the "pit," and a stunning erup- 
tion of cloudy ideas ensues. The phrases are . . . emaciated; the 
deli very resembles rather closely . . . vomiting ; and a sickening 
nausea pervades in . . . the audience. The seizures last indefinitely 
until the . . . audience collapses. Characteristic appearance of the 
patient during the fit : Face, dumbfounded ; eyes, confounded ; hair 
a-bristle ; and an extremely profuse word-orrhea. In general the 
patient resembles very closely one in Rambling Delirium. 

Prognosis: Fair. 

Treatment: Prophylactic: At the first sign of the developing disease 
administer an intra-cranial injection of Liquoris Sensis Horsis, full 
dose. 

Surgical : In the early stages perform the brain-grafting operation 
of Cow&Calf. In the advanced stages the only permanent curative 
measure is radical and complete glossoctomy by an experienced veter- 
inarian. 

Case No. II — Microfiguri Magnomindus ROBIN-isis. 
Diagnosis: Adolescent Ehairvescent Scalp-oma. 

Symptoms: Progressive thickening of the head and voice with correspond- 
ing thinning-out of the Curli Scalpae. The scalp becomes covered with 
bare desert-like glistening spots. The reflection of light falling upon 
these shiny PROMONTORIES produces an aureole around the 
patient's head similar to that previously attributed to saints, to which 
noble title the patient has neither right nor inclination. As the decid- 
uous Curli are shed rapidly and no permanent set appears, the patient's 
forehead assumes dimension of great sagacity and wisdom, which is 
absolutely in contradiction with true state of affairs. A verv out- 
standing symptom of this disease is extreme itching of the . . . 
lower extremities as evidenced by the utter inability of the patient to 
control their movements, resulting in a great tendency for dancingitis 
and shimmyosis. 




^ he De-nto: 

1923 



Prognosis: Good, if the case is taken early. 

Treatment: Daily shampoo with . . . Kitchen Kleanzer ; scalp mas- 
sage with pumice and scalpo-lustra. To improve the esthetic appear- 
ance of the patient, who is otherwise quite noodlewise, paint the hair- 
deserted Os Frontalis with a non-fading paint to match the original 
amber colored hairicles. 

Case No. Ill — Actinomycosis Macroglossia KANGASoma. 

Diagnosis: Acute Inter-quizzical Parrot-itis (not Mumps). 

Symptoms: Symptoms evidence themselves only during the delicate brain 
analysis of the patient indulged in by the inquisitive tortures, named 
"Prophs." The patient's face turns immediately anemic, which is at 
once supplanted by a state of active and excessive hyperemia, result- 
ing in the face assuming successfully all the delicate hues of the pro- 
verbial rainbow. There occurs a sudden stenosis of the Larnyx ; total 
paralysis of the Musculi Glossi ; and a flooding effusion of Fluidi 
Sudorifici, descending in streams and torrents. Rales, rhonchi, and other 
characteristic sounds issue from the widely distended mouth. The 
patient soon evidences a wicked tendency to imitate his congenial and 
helping neighbors, repeating slowly and aloud what they whisper at 
him. Fits of coughing are very frequent and are characterized by the 
patient's poking his neighbor with the elbows. The cough seems to 
relieve the Larnyx, as the patient is able then for a brief interval to 
articulate a few sounds resembling words. The spasm disappears as 
soon as the Proph begins the torturing of the next victim. Great mus- 
cular prostration follows the fit, and leaves the patient for some time 
in a state of mild stupor. 

Prognosis: Good. 

Treatment: Nerve transplantation — from Melichar ; wit transfusion — from 
Abrahams. 

Case No. IV— Jacitation Cerebri KLOBOUCNIKoma. 

Diagnosis: Malignant Moustache-oma. 

Symptoms: Occurs chiefly in the spring, affecting most of the Senior 
tribe. In the case under consideration the patient has suddenly devel- 
oped an extreme barberphobia, especially as relating to the Labium 
Superiorum. The virus was no doubt transmitted to the patient by 
means of personal contact with both Labii of a certain young per- 
son of the ... eh ... eh .. . tender sex, who, 
contrary to the laws of Biology, evidenced a rather conspicuous 
neoplasm of hairy structure just under the nose. On the day follow- 
ing the incubation, a erythematous RASH appeared on the Lab. Super., 
resembling very much in delicacy and softness those jaf the . . . 

porcupine. The rash spread rapidly to the Alae Nasi, and due to the 
irritation thus set up paroxyms of . . . sneezing were induced. 
' The general appearance of the patient is symptomatic ; hypertrophy of 
the . . . voice (deep basso) ; extreme twitching of the eyes . . . 
at the girls ; somnambulism . . . till 4 o'cl. in the morning ; curse- 
ulent discharge from the oral cavity, resembling that of ... a 
real man; and more or less wasting of the . . . pocketbook 

Prognosis : Doubtful. 

Treatment: Resection of the Cardiae Musculi to enable the extraction of

the Cupid-arrow ; excision of the Moustacheoma from the Lab. Sup. 
by a skilled chiropractor; daily administration of Liquoris Whiski 
. . . by imbibing freely, and Phenolis 95% by inunction on the lip 
affected. 

Case No. V — Trismus Tetani TRIPETenia. 

Diagnosis: Acute Idea-STASIS. 

Symptoms: Atrophy of the tongue (we've never seen it nor heard its 
vibrations) ; loss of powers of . . . COMPREHENSION ; Profs' 
phobia, as evidenced by tremors of the mandible during the quizz-peri- 
ods; complete sterility of the Idea-secretory apparatus, accompanied by 
pernicious silense-ia and hyper-timidity. 

Prognosis: Will probably recover. 

Treatments: Nightly excursions to . . . Dreamland ; vigorous exer- 
cise of . . . lower extremities; internally — an intramuscular in- 
jection of Extracti Pepi Americani.

Case No. VI — Aphodisiacus CORN-ua. 

Diagnosis: Chronic NARCOLEPSY (sleeping disease). 

Symptoms: Complete muscular prostration during class hours ; marked ina- 
bility to keep eyes open ; sonorous, high pitched nasal murmurs ; occa- 
sional brief wakefulness accompanied with violent spasms of yawning. 
[Note: The disease appears to be very contagious. Epidemics, espe- 
cially during the late lecture hours, are very common.] 

Prognosis: Favorable, if treatment be instituted early ... in the 
morning. 

Treatment: A jazz-band concert during all lecture hours. In incipient 
cases a large dose of Pulveris Capsicum administered by inhalation 
through the nose will clear up the case.

Symptoms: Deafening roars issuing on attempting to speak ; face deeply 

congested ; eyeballs protruding ; sounds are either high pitched and 

shrill, or low-rumbling and thundering. General appearance of the 

patient — that of apoplexy. 
Prognosis: Grave, not for the patient, but for his hearers ; cases of total 

deafness have been repeatedly recorded following the attempts of the 

patient to deliver himself of his thoughts. 
Treatment: Prophylactic only; the patient should be gagged every time 

he attempts to speak. 

Case No. VIII— Jerkitis Maligna: NOSKIN-us. 

Diagnosis: Chronic Tachyphrasia (*). 

Symptoms: Excessive dilation of Cavum Oris, the opened mouth extend- 
ing from ear to ear ; tongue in a state of rapid tremor, slightly hyper- 
trophied, due to the great and continuous exercise of the glossal mus- 
cles ; face flushed ; nostrils distended ; general appearance while speaking 
— that of Risus Sardonicus.

1923 

Treatment: Surgical: Suture the corners of the mouth to make the 
opening of normal size. 

Psychotherapy: Instruction in elocution by a competent nurse (young

with malignant "cussin" ; the trend of ideas is incoherent and sporadic ; 
voice, bluffing; eyes, glaring; anger, above normal; wit, below par; 
pulse, boiling; and, in general, progressive YELLOW degeneration. 

Prognosis: Favorable, if treatment is carried on persistently. 

Treatment: At the first sign of the fit, submerge the patient head down-

Case No. XIV— Maniacus Hindo-leggus SULAIMANdra. 

Diagnosis: Remittent Status Calamitus. 

Symptoms: Onset is sudden ; the patient while working on the erstwhile 
"points," evidences a voracious appetite for hugging irrespective of the 
age of the victim. As the victim resists, the Calamitus in his sjreat 
excitement sticks the explorer in the victim's tonsils, punctures the uvula, 
drills in into the hard palate, attempts to stop the ensuing hemorrhage 
by irrigating the wound with Phenolis 95'/, , following this up by hug- 
ging, pleading, and other Oriental stunts. The fit terminates by a pro- 
fuse effusion of the Fluidi Lachrymalis, loud nasal trumpeting, and pro- 
lapse of the tongue. Cold sweating is rather common. 

Prognosis: Bad! 

Treatment: Prompt and life-long seclusion in a Harem; immediate change 
of climate, preferably to that of Turkey. 

Case No. XV— GANGlion Bulbosum SPRAFKAema. 

Diagnosis: Chronic Status Bull-shootica. 

Symptoms: Patient is self-deceived as to his mental state, asserting that 
he is perfectly SANE ! ! Eagerly talks on any subject, using obsolete 
phrases ; or spends lecture hours in deep cogitation on vanity of . . . 
bluffing and the wickedness of the . . . point system. Appearance, 
when speaking, is very characteristic ; lower extremeties widely sep- 
arated ; head thrown upwards and backwards ; eyes swiftly rolling — 
in all a close resemblance to ... a FISH peddler ! 

Prognosis: Fatal, the patient usually succumbing to an attack of the infu- 
riated audience ! 

Treatment: Similar to that of Tetanus, viz.: at the first evidence of the 
approaching fit put the patient into deep anaesthesia by a moderate 
left-hook to the Symphysis Mandibulae, or, still better, by a gentle 
tap on the Fontanelle with a . . . lead pipe ! 

Case No. XVI— Dyspnea Jekunitis McCULLOUGHemia. 

Diagnosis: Stubborn Chronic BELCHitis. 

Symptoms: Very distressing to the . . . neighbors! Occur abruptly 
and spasmodically ; the patient, while indulging in his favorite occupa- 
tion — sweet slumbers — is crudely awakened by threatening rumbles in 
the subcutaneous depths of the . . . Solar Plexus. The rumbling 
increases in volume and timber, assuming alarming proportions. Vio- 
lent . . . abdomen-quakes follow with terrific trembling of the 
. . . . umbilicus ! The overtaxed Tractus Digesticus is in a riotous 
commotion, the shaking increases in intensity, and a violent BELCH- 
ING eruption ensues, accompanied by tornadoes of unperfumed gases, 
and torrents of . . . frothy saliva. The patient passes through 
all stages of cacophonia, starting with pianissimo, and terminating 
rather fortissimo with a thundering, ear-splitting W-H-O-O-P ! Gen- 
eral symptoms : pulse, pussy ; face, fussy ; forehead, glossy ; the patient 
as a whole very TOSSY ! ! 

Prognosis: Discouraging ... to the neighbors (as the patient has 
great chances to survive ! ) . 

Treatment: Prophylactic: Instruct the patient to belch into 

his sleeve ! Instruct the neighbors to wear . . . gas-masks !

Medicinal : Externally : administration of BLACK-EYE salve, by Koch- 
ansky; internally: administer per aurum a daily dose of Fluidextracti 
Refinedi Manneri, by ETU. 

Case No. XVII — Acromegalus MILLERismus. 

Diagnosis: Ulcerative Cigarettitis. 

Symptoms: Onset is . . . prodigious, characterized by pitiful contor- 
tions of the . . . noble ( !) features, extreme dilatation of the 
palm of the hand in the direction of a smoking classmate, and a gentle 
imploring . . . neighing, best simulated by the syllables : "GIM-me ! 
Gim-me!" As the disease progresses, the "borrowing" fits become 
more frequent ; the sense of decorum is partially inhibited ; and memory 
completely atrophied ; the patient is obsessed with the idea that buying 
"smokes" is unethical, while borrowing is a virtue ! In the later stages 
the symptoms are very aggravated ; there is constipation of the . . . 
brain ; "spicy" degeneration of the thought ; complete intolerance of 
. . . buying "smokes" ; alarmingly low temperature . . . when 
asked for a "cig" ; great congestion of the . . . pockets with bor- 
rowed stuff; and marked incontinence of . . . anger and profanity. 
The pulse is puny, the face is funny, the forehead, stony ; the patient 
as a whole, very clowny ! 

Prognosis: Horrible ... as there is inevitable danger of bankruptcy 
of the entire Senior tribe in the hopeless effort of satiating the voracious 
appetite of the patient for borrowed "cigs." 

Treatment : Must be instituted at the first intimation of the onset. 

Prophylactic : Treat the patient with "smokes" impregnated with H 2 S 
gas. [Note: Keep windows wide open for fear of . . . suffoca- 
tion.] 
Medicinal: Clean the system of the accumulated habit by: 

1. A thorough piping-hot Turkish bath (externally). 

2. A pint of Castor Oil (internally). Follow up by immediate mar- 

riage to a hot-baby of about 45 years of age and bony of figure ! 
Must be strong of arm and hard of hearing! 

Case No. XVIII — Ischemia Jugularis STAHLpenia. 

Diagnosis: Risolepsy (laughing disease). 

Symptoms: Rather unusual. The onset is sudden and unprovoked. The 
patient's lips suddenly contract, the cheeks distend to the size of a 
. . . barrel, the nostrils collapse, the eyeballs prolapse, and face is 
startingly similar to that of an owl. The cyanosis is alarming and the 
agony of . . . suspension of the onlookers out of order. The 
patient soon is seized by a violent fit of swaying to and fro, imitating 
the notorious Hindu fakirs (in plain slang, fakers!) by looking at . . . 
nothing in particular, and professing seeing something ludicrous in 
. . . nobody ! In a minute or two the lips relax, and the roaring guf- 
faw shakes . . . the building to its foundation. There follows a 
great variety of facial contortions most vividly depicting the 
Status Dementise. The fit dies out slowly, passing through all known 
and many unknown stages of laughter, including the . . . wail of 
the babe and the giggle of the . . . fatheat. The fit leaves the 
patient in a state of happy hallucination and perpetual . . . grin, 
with cheecks relaxed, the mouth widely open, and eyes suffused with 
eh . . eh . . . sweet tears.

Case No. XIX — Hiccoughia Hightonia MELICHARoma. 

Diagnosis: Pernicious NERVEmia. 

Symptoms: Extensive hypertrophy of the so-called "NERVE" as evi- 
denced by bold bluffing and loud snuffing. There is great curdling of 
the speech and souring of the features. The patient is ever obsessed 
with the idea of his great importance, which is in direct opposition to 
prevailing opinion of the tribe. The most outstanding symptoms are : 
Bearing, a la peacock ; eyes, a la Valentino ; mustache, a la Kaiser Bill ; 
general appearance of the patient is that of Duke of Dreamland ! In 
the late stage of the disease there is a marked tendency for spontane- 
ous fracture of the mandible due to continuous snapping at everybody ! 

Prognosis: Good for nothing ! 

Treatment: Immediate seclusion in a female monastery. Administration 
of Anti-toxini Arroganci as performed by Kochansky on Curry, using 
a double dose. 

Due to lack of space, the author is unable to enumerate the other unusual, 
and, so far, unrecorded cases of great pathological antics, as observed in the year 
of '23 among the aforementioned tribe. There is, however, no doubt in the 
author's clouded mind that some future fellow maniac of subtler wit and deeper 
insight than himself will assume the ungrateful task of being made the bull's-eye 
mark of the infuriated and revengeful savages — the candy-verous Seniors of '23, 
whose past, present, and, let's hope, future have no equals in the annals of 
TEETHDOM ! ! Amen ! And may we all amend ! 



THE FEMININE WHEEL 









At six — "Nice mans." 
At ten — "Carry my books." 
At sixteen — "I'll ask Mother." 
At twenty — "Don't be so slow." 
At twenty-five — "Do call me up." 
At forty-five — "Nice mans." 



I'd rather be a Could Be if I could not be an Are, 

For a Could Be is a May Be, with a chance of reaching par. 

I'd rather be a Has Been than a Might Have Been by far, 

For a Might Have Been has never been, but a Has was once an Are !

One is that they have no mind, the other that they have no business.

ADVICE FOR SPRING 

All couples beware of cheap hammocks. 

The hand that rocks the cradle is the one that cradles the rocks. 






They were standing outside the front door having a final chat after his evening 
call. 

He was leaning against the door post, talking in low, dulcet tones. 

She was listening and gazing up into his eyes. 

Suddenly she turned around. The door had opened, and there stood her 
father, clad in a dressing gown. 

"My dear father," she asked. "What is the trouble?" 

Her dear father ignored the question. 

"Doc," he said, "you know I've never complained about your staying late, 
and I'm not going to start now, but for goodness sake stop leaning on the door 
bell. Other people want to sleep even if you don't."

SAME OLD GAME 
By James Casey 

He was a guileless college youth, 
That mirrored modesty and truth. 
And sometimes to his musty room 
His sister called to chase the gloom. 
One afternoon when she was there, 
Arranging things with kindly care, 
As often she had done before, 

There came a knock upon the door. 

Our student, sensitive to fears 

Of thoughtless comrades' laughing jeers, 

Had only time to make deposit 

Of his dear sister in a closet, 

Then haste the door to open wide ; 

His guest unbidden stepped inside. 




1923 



He was a cheery faced old man, 

And with apologies began 

For calling, and then let him know 

That more than fifty years ago, 

When he was in his youthful bloom, 

He'd occupied that very room; 

So thought he'd take the chance, he said, 

To see the changes time had made. 

"The same old window, same old view, 
Ha, ha, the same old pictures, too, 
And then he tapped them with his cane, 
And laughed his merry laugh again. 
"The same old sofa, I declare, 
Dear me ! It must be worse for wear. 
The same old shelves!" And then he came 
And spied the closet door. "The same — " 
Oh, my! A woman's dress peeped through. 
Quick as he could he closed it to. 
He shook his head. "Ah! Ah! The same 
Old game, young man, the same old game."

At Mrs. Delling's Window: 

Nare — Waits for minutes, without speaking a word.

Nare (in his usual scared manner) — "Eh — eh, I want to be sterilized, 
please!" 



In Crown and Bridge Deft.:

Junior (anxious to display his knowledge) — "What the H...., make a 
5/4 crown! Don't you see it is indicated here?" 

Editor's Note — On post-mortem it was discovered that the deceased junior 
was afflicted with acute Insolence-itis, so prevalent in infants, as evidenced 
by the entire Junior Class.

Second Twisted Reamer. 
Old Infection (Arch Villain). 
Streptococcus Aureus . . . \ _ . . _, , _ ,

Compound Tine. Iodine — Friend of Formo-Cresol. 
Modified Eucalyptol. 

Second Superior Cuspid and Second Bi-Cuspid — Neighbors and 
Sympathizers of First Bi-Cuspid. 

ACT I. SCENE I. 

Round Bur — "There is much work for me to do here today." 

(Works away arduously for a few minutes, then suddenly enters into the pulp 
chamber.) 

First Bi. — "Ouch! Gee Whiz! You certainly gave me a fright. I thought 
you were going all the way to the apex." 

Round Bur — "Never fear. I am perfectly harmless. I only wanted to prepare 
the way for some of my co-workers and friends who should soon be here." 

Enter Barbed Broach — "Well what have we here?" 

(Works diligently, gives a few short twists and comes out bringing the pulp 
with him.) 

First Bi. (turning toward pulp) — "Well I am certainly glad I'll have no more 
trouble with you." 

The Pulp — "Oh! You can't kid me. I always treated you right. It's only 
because I have been 'mistreated'. That's what made me act up so these last 
few days. I'll be the death of you." 

Enter First Reamer — "Gee, but this is a tight place, I can do very well here 
if they only give me enough time. With the aid of Phenol-Sul phonic I know I can 
soon reach my destination." 

(First Reamer and Phenol-Sulphonic work together and soon reach the apex.) 

Second Reamer (boastfully) — "Let me try a while I am larger than you and 
therefore I think I can do more work. I expect some followers and I know they 
expect me to make room for them. Hully Gee ! This is certainly a pipe. Number 
One certainly blazed the trail. Well, I know I am important even if I am not 
Number One." 

(Makes a few twists then suddenly finds himself caught. Tries his best to 
extricate himself when suddenly he breaks at the middle.) 

First Bi. — "Now see what you've done? I can't even expect to be useful with 
you hanging around." 

Second Reamer — "Stop your crying. I am at least a friendly enemy. You 
had better be mighty glad Old Infection hasn't come here to dwell. He will give 
you fits for sure. I am at least aseptic."

First Bi. — "Aseptic, ha! ha! that's what they all say. (Hist) Here comes 
Old Infection now." 

(Enter Old Infection with Compatriots Streptococcus aureus and Streptococcus 
Viridans.) 

Old Infection — "Well friends, we ought to have a good time here. Remember 
I am monarch of all I survey." 

(They immediately set to work.) 

First Bi.— "Well I'll fix you. I'll call for help." 

(Sends out S. O. S. for Formo-Cresol.) 

Formo Cresol (arriving post haste) — "I am very sorry, but I can't be of much 
help until you rid yourself of the remains of Number 2 Reamer." 

First Bi. (wringing his hands) — "How can I get rid of him? I have implored 
him to go and he retaliated by saying there were worse things than he. I do 
believe he is to blame for Old Infection coming here to annoy me and Old Infection 
has raised such a large family since he has been here." 

Formo Cresol — "Why don't you send for Comp. Tine. Iodine? I'll bet he makes 
old Number Two get out. It's tedious work too, but he is a glutten for work." 

First Bi. — (Sends out a call for Comp. Tine. Iodine. He arrives shortly and 
silently goes to work.) 

SCENE II 

First Bi. — "Now, I do believe I feel better. I am certainly deeply grateful to 
you for suggesting Comp. Tine, to me. That saucy old Number Two acted as if 
he was just determined to stay here." 

Formo-Cresol — "Aha! Now here is where we go after Old Infection." 

(Sets to work with a will, soon routs Old Infection and he leaves bag and 
baggage.) 

Formo-Cresol — "Well, my work is ended." 

First Bi. — "Many thanks to you. I know now I can get my house in order. 
I can send for Modified Euclyptal. He will make everything sweet and clean 
He is so thorough that he just racks me to pieces but that is what counts." 

Second Bi. and Cuspid — (Neighbors and sympathizers of First Bi.) 

Second Bi. — "Did you hear about the trouble our neighbor has been having?" 

Cuspid — "Did I hear about it? I couldn't miss hearing about it. I hear 
Old Infection paid him a visit." 

Second Bi. — "Yes, I heard the same thing, but Old Infection didn't come 
without an invitation. I heard that Old Number 2 Reamer invited him." 

Cuspid — "Well, I guess our neighbor is getting on all right now, because I just 
heard that Modified Euclyptol is there and you know any time he is on the job 
things must be O. K." 

SCENE III— (Three Days Later) 

First Bi. — (Meets his neighbors) "Did you hear about the trouble I had?" 

Neighbors — "We could not help knowing of your trouble, we too have felt 
the effect of Old Infection and haven't had a good nights sleep in the last ten." 

First Bi. — "Well this certainly should be a lesson to all of us. Infection is a 
persistent old cuss and if it hadn't been for my good friends Formo-Cresol and 
Comp. Tine. Iodine I do believe we would all have been wrecked — a word to the 
wise is sufficient."

Dr. Johnson — "I object to the term "pound" gold foil. What is a better word?'

C. C. D. S. — Broadcasting 



McDonald — "Every time she smiles it reminds me of a Pullman car at eight 
o'clock in the evening." 
Morrey — "How's that?" 
McDonald — "No lowers and very few uppers left." 



Schuyler stepped into a barber shop one morning to be shaved. After the 
operation was over he continued to occupy the chair, and the barber, thinking he 
had dozed off, gently reminded him by asking "Asleep, sir?" 

Schuyler started. "Heavens no!" he exclaimed. "I'm not asleep but I am 
terribly shortsighted. When I took my glasses off I was no longer able to see 
myself in the mirror, and naturally I supposed I had gone home!" 



A. Cohn placed a ladder against the side of the house, and then called his son 
Abie, aged twelve, and made him mount to the top. "Now jump," commanded 
Cohn. 

"I'm frightened," replied Abie. 

Cohn held out his arms. "Do as papa tells you — jump — papa is here." 

Finally Abie did jump. Cohn stepped aside and Abie fell with a bump. 

"Let that teach you a lesson never to trust anybody," said Cohn. 



A man I know kicked up a row 

That stirred the neighbors' wrath: 

He walked up to a lady cow 
And slyly pinched her calf. 



"How did you get your mustache in this condition?" asked the barber. "Guess 
I'll have to take it off."

TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE CROWN 

By H. G. Bayles 

Twinkle, twinkle, little crown, 
Since you came I never frown; 
I smile and smile to show the gold, 
Letting friend and foe behold. 

When the blazing sun is gone, 
When he nothing shines upon, 
Then you show your little light, 
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night. 

When I travel in the dark, 
I light my footsteps by your spark; 
I could not tell which way to go, 
If you did not twinkle so. 

'Tween my lips you slyly lurk, 
As I go about my work ; 
Till my sudden radiant smile, 
Lights the landscape for a mile. 

Though your bright, unfailing spark, 
Lights my pathway in the dark, 
Glad I am, howe'er he sorrow, 
You my neighbor cannot borrow. 

FINALE 

At the apex of the root, 
When the microbes bear their fruit, 
Little crown, your time has come, 
You put my tooth upon the bum.

An absent minded professor was traveling in the east. When the conductor 
came to take his ticket, he could not find it. So the blue coated individual passed 
on saying that he would return. The Prof, continued searching until the con- 
ductor returned, but found no ticket. 

"That will be all right, sir, just pay me in cash," said the conductor. 

"That isn't troubling me, sir," replied the absent minded Prof. "I have to 
have that ticket to know where I'm going."

A Brief History of Dentistry 

By H. C. Cornwell 
My Dear Reader: 

It is very necessary at the offset to realize, in the face of all opposition, that 
dentistry commenced with a toothache. This is not an astounding revelation, 
but an old belief handed down from the ages past and rapidly being forgotten — I 
might even say forsaken for more modem, more scientific conceptions on origin. 

Let me reiterate — dentistry commenced with a toothache. That is the thought, 
the nucleus of the whole history. If you can carry this with you into your first 
office, your success is assured as a dentist. Beware of those who come to you with 
a banner of enlightenment and whisper in your ear: "My friend de dentist, 
dental troubles have der origin in de liver." Or another will come and say: 
"Unfortunate, misled man, let me cast into your eyes such a light of wisdom that 
you will be dazzled by the thought and tremble. Hearken unto me! I say to 
you — a toothache starts from a misplaced vertebra." They will even place 
pamphlets in your mail box upholding the origin of trouble in the appendix, or 
toes, or brain — it makes no difference to them except that the trouble at lease 
isn't in the mouth. 

With your resistance worn down by these arguments, you are at the point of 
excepting them. A burly man enters your office; he holds his face in his hand 
and between attempting to point out some offending tooth and hold his mouth 
open for you to inspect, he mutters inaudible words of pain. You look into his 
bloodshot eyes swollen from nights of sleeplessness and say with confidence: 
"Alas! Poor man! Why do you come here to deceive me thus? I can see at a 
glance it's your liver is upset — and if you would have your appendix out and relieve 
your toes of the gout, that pain would immediately disappear." 

Imagine your dismay on waking up some hours later in a hospital and trying 
to collect your scattered thoughts and figure out just how you got in this pre- 
dicament. 

Now come. Let us throw off conventionalism and seek the history of this 
matter. That was the stimulus which started me on this history. In its brief 
course I have not even ridden the mountain tops but sailed in a cloud conceiving 
my material with a broader perspective than could otherwise be done on earth. 
For fear you question the authenticity of this history, I wish to set your minds 
immediately at ease by saying that only after years of hard study in the archives 
of the Houseboat on the Styx have I felt it my duty (but a pleasurable duty) to 
place before you the very valuable matter obtained there. 

It is necessary on the start to commence with a regret. This is unfortunate, 
but for years I assure you I tried to eradicate the necessity for doing so. It was a 
controversy over Adam. Adam you know lived in Eden. During my stay on 
the Styx I. had a long talk with Socrates one day and it was his constant storm of 
questions which threw the cloak of doubt over my mind regarding Adam. The 
trouble was this : We could not decide whether Adam had a toothache before he 
lost his rib or after. Following much wrangling I simply came right out and 
said: "Soc, I've got a headache over this question, which way will I decide it?" 

Then he told me that just recently he had been perusing Solomon's ten thousand 
introductory volumes on 'The Lives of my Wives' — which, by the way, were only 
completed some few hundred years ago. Socrates said that in the five hundred 
and ninety-third volume, which he devoted to his eighty-first wife, he lamented 
over the fact that he lost weeks of sleep because she howled constantly with the 
toothache. 

"Quoting from his own writing," said Socrates, "he speaks thus: 'My wife 
continues to howl. I fear I will lose my servants, for already the beasts of the 


















Tfcfl 



£ntos 

1923 



field and the birds of the air have deserted me. At times the howl becomes a roar 
and the house trembles and I tremble too. I fear at times for my sanity for I 
cannot get her to bed, neither can the servants persuade her to eat. In all this 
trouble at least I have drawn one conclusion that Adam had a toothache before 
he lost his rib and that the condition of my wife is but a hereditary trait of the 
family passed down from Eve'." 

While it would be interesting to tell you more of Adam — how the chemical 
action of the fruit juices of that forbidden tree gave origin to dental caries which 
today is the most widespread ravage of the human race, I must keep constantly 
in my mind that this is but a brief history, and pass on. 

It was probably Noah that first conceived of the necessity of care of the teeth. 
I find in a little book written by him on: "Rules and Regulations Regarding Ad- 
mission of Animals to the ARK," that he writes emphatically: 

CLASS I 

Rules governing the mouth 
Division 14 
Type 1923 

It is absolutely necessary as part of your physical examination to 
extract all hopeless diseased teeth. Any animal that neglects this and 
goes mad on the voyage from a toothache, must submit to being cast 
overboard. 

How much like Noah that was ! And how much of Noah there is inherited in 
us today. We are still groping with the problem which confronted him in those 
primal days, and the desire at times to throw overboard certain individuals is not 
less strong with us now than with him then. 

It is a commonly accepted fact now that the human being has periods of sus- 
ceptibility to caries and periods of rest; but I want to go further and state that the 
human race as a whole has centuries of susceptibility followed by centuries of 
immunity. It was a case of susceptibility to start with Adam and as I turn the 
first leaf in the progress of this history — leaving the days of the beginning — and 
enter the era commonly spoken of as the stone age, I enter the first century of the 
World's stage of immunity. 

The question of toothache almost lapsed into oblivion during this period. How 
strangely these conditions came about, I will herewith attempt to tell. I recall 
going for a paddle in a canoe with Aristides one night on the Styx and mentioned 
this phenomena to him. 

Very seldom had I ever heard Aristides laugh so heartily as he did upon this 
occasion. 

"There is no phenomena to it," he said. 

"NO?" 

"Did you ever hear of Rodney Gunspuncher ? " he continued. 

"Gunspuncher? Er — Rodney Gunspuncher?" I repeated thoughtfully. "Why, 
yes, I have heard that name somewhere." 

"Well," exclaimed Aristides, losing some of his joviality and growing more 
serious, "this Gunspuncher was a big man in the Stone Age. He made possible 
what you are pleased to call phenomena; and let me tell you right here had he not 
been such a coward and had the laws which he contrived persisted and been rigidly 
enforced down through the ages, dentistry would have died in its infancy." 

I cried aloud: "Aristides, you jest with me. I cannot believe this!" 

With that he nearly upset the canoe (and I want to tell you that the Styx is 
not a pleasant pool to fall into) and shouted: "SHUT UP! Listen to ME." 



135 



^D^ntos 






"Gunspuncher's father's name was Rodney and he said to his son one day: 
'Gunny (for he enjoyed that name), when I die and you reign I want you to put 
some punch into my people. They have the worst set of teeth of any race which 
has existed before us!' 

"In brief this came to pass, for Gunspuncher realized only too well that the 
words his father had spoken were true. As he traveled about his ten-acre king- 
dom and saw wretched suffering people huddled in the stony crevices their faces 
swollen beyond recognition, he said: T will act immediately and bring this 
condition to an end.' 

"He formed a council of the strongest men in the kingdom and one day follow- 
ing a steak feed in Dudley's Cavern (of a rare dinosauria) Gunspuncher felt moved 
to speak. 

' 'They sat there late into the night but eventually decided upon a means whereby 
the people could be freed of this suffering, painlessly. The next day Gunspuncher 
selected a suitable location and sent his council out to bring in the sufferers — ■ 
originating, probably the first known dental office. There was only one type of 
operation ; it sufficed for all ; it was done in this simple manner : The sufferer was 
lashed to the base of a cliff. Before him hung tempting morsels of megalosaurus. 
The leash which supported this meat was apparently attached to the cliff above, 
but herein I ask you to consider the cleverness of the contrivance. The long 
tendon was attached to a well posed boulder and as the unsuspecting sufferer reached 
to draw the meat to him he dislodged the boulder, which fell upon his head render- 
ing him immediately unconscious. I ask you, with all our modern knowledge, can 
we in this enlightened age render a patient unconscious with less mental agony 
than this? Of course I'll admit they did miss the sufferer's head sometimes and 
crush their fingers or toes or knock their wind out, but invariably they always 
fainted from the effects anyway so the result proved satisfactory in either instance. 
Gunspuncher's assistants would rush in following this and with a suitable stone 
chisel and stone mallet dislodge that portion of the jaw which was giving offense. 
Sometimes they would knock out the entire upper and lower jaws and what odds 
even though the patients didn't always recover, their suffering was ended anyway. 
Those that did recover thereafter were never mentally capable of understanding, 
much less explain to their friends how it all came about. In this manner Guns- 
puncher quickly rendered his country free from suffering people." 

"And what was the result of such a procedure?" I remarked. 

Obsessed by his own words, Aristides continued: "Gunspuncher laid down 
laws relative to the mouth which grew so searching that eventually anyone found 
with faulty contacts, faulty fissures, loose teeth or any traces of early discoloration, 
the mark of decay, had to submit themselves to the extractionist. 

"As time progressed there was a marked improvement in the people physically. 
They grew larger and stronger and without difficulty conquered their neighbors, 
upon whom they enforced the same laws regarding the teeth. In short — every- 
thing eventually revolved about the teeth. 

"But alas! In the height of his glory Gunspuncher's laws proved a boomerang. 
Up until this time the people had not conceived of questioning the condition of 
Gunspuncher's own mouth, but when the idea suddenly dawned upon them — OH ! 
What a mighty cry was there ! 

Gunspuncher was found by a stony brook chewing the fins of a fish ; was seized 
and dragged to the extractionist. Realizing it meant death (because he had not 
a sound tooth in his head) he said: 'Bring me the stone tablets with the laws 
thereon.' This was done. Then he piled them below the cliff; ran up to the top 
of the cliff ; dislodged a large boulder which crashed down upon the tablets pulver- 
izing them to dust, crying aloud in a mighty voice as he did so: 'The laws are 
no more!' "

Aristides stopped and I stopped paddling for I had been across the Styx and 
back without realizing it. 

"Is that all?" I remarked. 

"ALL?" he replied musingly. "It was the earliest mark of cowardice the 
World had ever known. Had Gunspuncher sacrificed his life at that time, today 
a toothache would be a pain unknown to the human race. But alas ! By retriev- 
ing these laws the human family has gradually grown more diseased with carious 
teeth." 

I tell you I was overwhelmed for weeks following this story by Aristides and 
unable to continue my research work for months. Nevertheless my spirits were 
revived one afternoon as I sat in the club room of the Houseboat talking with 
Hippocrates. He told me many facts about early days in Italy and Greece. I 
noticed a small book in his hand and inquired about it, being curious. He handed 
it to me. It read: "The Value of Muscular Exercise." 

"Who wrote this?" I asked. 

"Samson," came the reply. 

"Well what do you know," I exclaimed. 

"Your interest in teeth might find favor in this book," said Hipprocrates. 
"You know there is a common belief today" he continued, "that Samson was 
rendered weak by cutting his hair. That is a myth. Let me show you what he 
says in his own book. Read." 

I read the following: "In my days of affliction I realize that had I not had a 
toothache the night Delilah came to me, I should never have granted her the 
wishes she asked. Now they say she cut my hair and I lost my strength. How 
cruel a blow is that ! But I tell you, gentlemen of the Styx, that had I not neg- 
lected my teeth, had I not been all in all absorbed in physical development of my 
body, had I not left one weak link in the chain of my life, history' would not have 
been written about me as it is. When that offending tooth and others were lost 
and the poisons were gradually driven from my body my physical condition began 
to immediately improve. But alas! What availed in living when all was dark- 
ness — and I perished with the Philistines at the great festival of Dagon . . . " 

The story of the early history of the modern era is full of toothaches. Had I 
time and space I would gladly enumerate them to you. One thing at least I 
realized at this stage ; that the World was by destiny meant to suffer from tooth- 
aches. If you could have read some of the personal letters of Alexander the Great 
who in one short line says: "A toothache drove me to drink." Or the lyric 
poems of Cleopatra, quoting: 

"Hark! What is the noise I hear? 
Coming as a roaring storm 
Tumultuous across the sea. 
Is it thunder — or could it be 
That my beloved Antony 
Suffers pain and agony 

From a toothache." 

But now I must come to a close. My perspective has grown infinite. Days 
moments, years but minutes and yet — if I should tell you that from Cleopatra to 
Napoleon no one conceived of the possibility of alleviating the toothache, you 
would not believe me. It is said that the great library at Alexandria was destroyed 
just because the conqueror not finding any information which would relieve him 
of a toothache cried in an angry voice: "Get rid of this bunch of junk — what 
good is it to me?" 

At the battle of Waterloo Napoleon probably formulated the stimulus which 
grew into the formation of a dental institution. Before the battle he gave utterance 









137

1923 






to a small expression which has grown to have greater significance than he ever 
dreamed it would have. Standing by his white charger with a woolen sock wrapped 
around a swollen jaw he said to his faithful officers: "Gentlemen, it would be 
greater to say that you could conquer a toothache, than to boast that you could 
conquer all the nations upon the earth." Following the defeat of this battle a 
large majority of the officers founded a research club for the purpose of trying to 
solve a means to alleviate the toothache. 

To go further I would ingress upon your own knowledge of the toothache. But 
who now amongst you will question the origin of the toothache ? If in this short 
essay I have stimulated a kindlier feeling towards my elucidation, my research 
will not have been in vain. If now when that burly man with bloodshot eyes 
comes to your office, you fall on his neck and weep at his misfortune, this work 
will be justified. Oh ! graduating student, there is a duty faces you truly. May 
you have the convictions of an open mind to meet it honestly, squarely. 






The Germ of a Tragedy 

{Magnified 10,000 diameters) 

A protoplasmic parasite 

Loved a little lady germ ; 

And he expressed his love for her 

By wiggle, twist, and squirm. 

But each of his contortionings 

The maid misconstrued, 

And each time that he sought her side 

She'd cleverly elude. 

He tried in all the manners known 

His burning love to tell ; 

But always as he'd float her way 

She'd duck behind a cell. 

One day, in fury at her acts, 

He chased her down a vein, 

And, at each pulsing of the heart, 

This parasite would gain. 

From Vena cava, through the heart 

And to the lungs she sped, 

But he was always close behind 

On a corpuscle (red). 

Through every tubule known to man, 

And some we must discover, 

She fled upon the serum fluid 

Her nucleated lover. 

Worn out, eventually, she sought 

A little leucocyte; 

And slapped it with her funny tale, 

Enraging it to bite. 

Then as the parasite approached, 

She drew her final breath, 

And suffered for her loveliness 

Phagocytic death.

Our Own Steam Roller 

The Senior Class election of this year was indeed an hectic affair. Keen 
campaigning was indulged in by both sides. The following ticket will serve 
to illustrate the subtle means of political manipulation which the victorious party 
circulated as a master stroke in successful culmination of a zealous vote roundup. 
We all know now who was victorious but from this pamphlet we will be able 
to see that many were called while but few were chosen. Read 'em and weep 
or rejoice, as far as your affiliation will allow you to : 

Below are the two main tickets in the field for Senior Class election 1922-23. 
We appeal to all fair-minded, clear-thinking members of the class to give these 
two tickets due consideration. The Committee which drew up the independent 
Ticket has tried to the best of its ability to pick men of the highest calibre from 
each fraternity and the class at large. The Committee which picked the Political 
Ticket did so, not with the interest of the Class at heart, but from ulterior 
motives only. 

If you wish to vote a Straight Ticket place an X at the head of the column 
of your choice. 

If other nominations are made, which you prefer to vote for, scratch out 
the name on the ticket and write in the name of your choice.

THE SHEIK OF FOILS 
By A. J. C. 

Our knees are weak, our heads they creak, 

The day is drear and dank ; 

The morn's forlorn, your wits are shorn, 

The patient's very rank ; 

You adjust the dam, with fervid cram, 

Your patience at an end ; 

"Lay back your head, play you are dead, 

A quiet moment spend." 

According to Hoyle, I'll pound this foil, 

I'll boil and roil, I'll push this foil ; 

I'll moil and toil, the foil may spoil — 

Cement, you are my friend. 

In days of old, when knights were bold, 
Who heard of the isle of Yap? 

Your heart grows cold, as you pound the gold 
In the head of some poor sap. 

It says in the contract, "Have one point contact, 
No matter if you tire ; 
Your recompense, the foil condense, 
Or feel CN's righteous ire. 

Dear old dummy state board foil ! 
How many Senior tears are shed 
While pounding on some luckless head. 
Adjust the ligature and dam, my man, 
Draw back your nose, as best you can ; 
Adjust the chair, tie back her hair ; 
Then get the air — it's essential. 
First attempt the cavity to prepare ; 
Then despair ; 
Stop ! Gulp ! 

Horrors ! Decay's to the pulp ! 
Start anew ; this day you'll rue ; 
Demonstrator's got you spotted ; 
Your share of trouble's allotted. 
Make the step ; 
Watch your pep ; 
Open her wide to every side ; 
(Extension for prevention). 






141 



^IWtos 



The bur does slip ; you cut the lip ; 

The dam you tear, and then your hair ; 

You start once more, mad as a boar ; 

Demonstrator's back of you, ready to crack at you 

The dam's now in place. 

You're again in the race ; 

The cavity's O K, 

The gold's on your tray ; 

Use mallet and elbow oil. 

Pound, slave, the foil. 

Clickety, click, clack. 

There's a hump on your back ; 

Cohesion's not hard. 

Condense it my parcl ; 

Contact, it's here, 

Contour is near; 

Soon we'll pay, what the pipers play, 

For well we know, and 'twas ever so, 

We can't do as well as the mallet's click, 

That held envious eyes at our clinic. 

But we take a chance. 
We shiver and prance, 
We polish, we toil. 
We finish the foil . . . 
Ye Gods ! 'Tis loose ! 
What the deuce . . . 
Is this the end ? 

Sh ! Cement's my friend. . . . 
L' envoi : 

"Well done, my boy, 
I'm proud, rav bov, 

My boy. Hem ! ' ! ! !" 




A SENIOR'S DREAM 
By Sam. Needelman 

It's Thursday night! I'm almost dead: 

I murdered a D. O. ! 
So, reaching home, I rush to bed 

To sleep away my woe ! 

And dreams, sweet dreams envelop me 

As soon as I lay down, 
Wherein I march a Dentist free 

In graduation gown ! 

A-capped, a-gowned, well dressed 
I reach the Gates of Heaven — 

The Gates that guard the Valleys Blest, 
By God to dentists given. 










142 












1923 



And there, aloof, with perfect right, 
The weal of dentists guarding, 

I see ... I see the olden sight 
That sets my heart bombarding ! 

I see Dean Johnson, eagle-eyed, 

A-piercing thru my soul ; 
I see Dean Logan at his side, 

P. G., McBoyle and all ! 

They stare at me with grim delight, 
They look and look me over ; 

They ask me questions left and right 
Until I wish for cover ! 

How darest thou come up here — 

To the very gard. of Eden ? 
Speak ye out, bold and clear ! 

For what might you be pleadin' ? 

"My service to the human race 

Is great, I do not doubt . . . !" 

I try to say, with flushing face, 
With shaking knees, yet loud. 

I've pounded foils, I've inlays cast, 
I've root-fills made by score! 

In bridgework, dentures, and the rest 
I've done my share, and more! 

Pyorrheas (that's some rot!) 

I've treated quite a number ; 
In prophs. amalgams, and what not 

I surely did not slumber ! 

I worked with zeal, I toiled with will, 
To please you, Honored Teachers ! 

I've studied hard, and got the skill 
To help all ailing creatures. 

I've struggled hard to reach my goal — 
From it you should not budge me! 
. . I've said enough, you heard me all, 
And now, sirs, you may judge me ! 

Those stern eyes then turn kind, 
Those faces burst with smiles ; 

They say, like one : "He now will find 
Reward for all his trials ! 

"To enter here a right has HE — 

He'll make a dentist grand ! 
For he's of the Class of '23, 

The Class that 'beat the band' ! 









143 



"So swing the Gates, and let him pass ! 

My boy — there lies the WORLD ! 
Pass on ! Uphold your zealous class. 

March on, with flags unfurled !" 

And therewith ends the sweetest dream — 

The dream I dream, and YOU ! 
So let us work with will supreme 

That this, OUR DREAM, COMES TRUE! 




A'LEAVING THE NEST 

At last the day has come when we scrawny little creatures 

Have been nursed at length to strength by our never-tiring teachers 

To be able of our will to fly ourselves from nest to hill, 

And wing our way around the world from bough to bough and tree to tree 

Till we've gathered strength and courage to fly across the sea. 

So here we are, we brave and meek, we proud and prudent sons and daughters, 
A'leaving the nest to fly across the waters and disperse in all directions of the globe. 
But e're we leave let's take our heed — our tutors' tender care — 
"Now mark ye children whither ye fare, nor overrate thy sinew ; 
Take courage along, have confidence strong in the power that is in you." 

— Anna Mistara.

WITH APOLOGIES TO BARON MUNCHAUSEN 



"Yes, boys," Doctor Fish said as he lazily puffed his fragrant stogie, "when 
I was a student at the Chicago Dental College, I was the fastest man on the floor. 
Let me relate a few of the feats I accomplished. In the first place I had sixty- 
four good patients who never missed an appointment and who came three times 
a week. I always averaged twenty-five patients a day. I would work from 
five to twenty minutes on each patient. I would prepare a cavity in a second or 
two — frequently less — and insert and finish a foil in less than three minutes. 
This included the final polish. I would carve an inlay in less time than I am 
taking to tell you of it. I would adjust my rubber dam, get my tray from the 
root fill nurse, ream out my canals and fill them in two or three minutes. I 
frequently worked on two patients at one time, using two engines. You see, I 
am ambidextrous. I would hold a hand-piece in each of my hands and prepare 
cavities in two patients or in several teeth in the same mouth. I could take an 
impression for a full upper and lower or partial, and finish the whole plate in 
one sitting while the patient waited in the chair. I usually did this in fifteen 
or twenty minutes. Once, however, my patient wanted to catch a train in ten 
minutes so I hurried and finished the plate in 9% minutes. Needless to say, 
I was highly complimented by my instructor and demonstrator. I would start 
preparing the abutment teeth for a large fixed bridge, finish the abutments, 
set up my dummies, take a bite, solder and do everything else in connection 
with a bridge in fifteen minutes. Once, however, my right arm was incapacitated 
so I had to work with my left hand only. Naturally this took me five or ten 
minutes longer. In extracting teeth, I would use two, three and four forceps 
at a time. I would extract upper and lower teeth at the same time. I extracted 
the full thirty-two teeth from a patient having pyorrhea in seven seconds. A 
student with a stop watch timed me. I would remove impacted molars in from 
two to four seconds. Why, my dear fellows, I was out in Junior points at the 
first posting. At the end of the year I had the modest sum of 4,732 points, and 
I accomplished this feat despite the fact that I frequently rested in the base- 
ment. If I had put my' full time in and worked just a little harder I could 
easily have made eight or nine thousand points. Upon graduating I was offered 
the position of superintendent of the infirmary at a salary of $75,000 per annum. 
I refused this as I knew that if I opened an office I could easily average $200,000 

a year. Anyway, boys " 

At this juncture a man in a hospital uniform entered the grocery store 
where Doctor Fish was recounting his miraculous feats in dentistry to a crowd 
of country hicks, and in a soothing voice, said : "Now, Abner, you must come 
right back to your home around the corner. We have put new padding in your 
cell and you can insert lots of cavities in it with your fork. You see, boys," 
he said, turning to the awe-stricken bumpkins, "Abner used to be a student at 
a dental college. He was stricken with pointitis, an incurable mental maladv." 
He took Abner gently by the arm and slowly escorted him away from the 
dumbfounded hangers-on.

Another Disappointment 

Ed DeKoven 




I had a severe toothache one night in the vicinity of my upper right first 
molar. I had been hit on the head when a child. I had been beaten up by a 
gang of ruffians when a freshman at college, I had had both legs shot from under 
me, my head cut off by a sword and had been otherwise generally insulted, but 
all this bad treatment, I vowed in doubtful but eloquent terms, did not hold a 
60-watt Mazda to that awful night of torture. That molar jumped so at in- 
definite intervals that I thought all the power of Vesuvius were stored away in 
my maxillary sinus and were seeking a mode of exit. Thoughts of removing all 
my thirty-two teeth and wearing a full upper and lower denture flashed through 
my mind in its semi-conscious state. I dreamed of a herculean dentist in a blood- 
stained white gown standing over me with a pair of giant sterilized ice tongs. 
My wife covered me with hot water bottles, sympathized with me, and made 
a regular nuisance of her good hearted self, but to no avail. My pre-war stuff 
was all gone, and, as I had neglected my last two payments, on my insurance 
policy, I refused to take the moonshine offered in self defense by the neighbor 
next door, who was unable to sleep due to my vociferous wailings. 

Eventually, after 3 convulsions, 6 nightmares, 4 fits. 7 spasms with hysterics 
in between attacks, morning came and I decided to visit the dentist. 

Dr. Black had not arrived yet and would not be down before 10 :30. 

Dr. White, next block, was away at a Dental Society clinic. 

Dr. Green was busy, and there were six other swollen cheeked sufferers 
ahead of me. 

In despair I hailed a taxicab and was taken to the dental college clinic. I 
asked the girl at the information desk where I could get a tooth extracted and 
she indicated the general direction. I sat down on a bench with a number 
of other patients, in evident distress, and waited. In the next room I heard a 
man yell and I felt faint and weak. From the adjacent students' laboratory 
came the noise of a number of college boys singing a selection from Pagliacci, 
accompanied by some others singing "Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here!" and 
still others cat-calling and barking. 

This didn't make me feel any better. After waiting a while, I was accosted 
by a bespectacled doctor. I opened my mouth and pointed to the tooth. He 
asked me if it hurt me! With my cheek swollen, tears in my eyes, I smiled 
and said yes. He said he would not advise me to have it pulled, as it could be 
saved. I was directed to the second floor, where I again waited fully three 
hours. At twelve o'clock I was turned over to a young dumb looking student who 
told me to "step this way.'' I followed him and sank exhausted into a chair. 
He then went away and returned in half an hour with a toothpick in his mouth. 
It took him five minutes to sterilize his instruments, and fifteen minutes to wash 
his hands and manicure his nails. Then he adjusted the napkin about my neck 
and went away. He returned in half an hour, reeking from Camels. 

Finally he took an examination blank, and wrote down my name, address 
and age. 

He then said, "Open, please." 

I opened. 

"Open wider," sweetly. 

I did so. 

"What is it you want to have done?" he asked. 

I thought a moment. Somehow the pain had magically disappeared. 

I told him about the toothache, and that the pain was gone. He took an 
explorer and jammed it into the hilt into my mysteriously pacified molar. 




157 



1923 



"Wow !" I roared in gentle disapproval. "That hurts !" 

"Have you ever had your tonsils removed?" he asked. 

"Oh ! Oh ! it hurts !" I moaned. 

He drilled into the tooth while I squirmed, yelled, capsized and protested, 
and he cemented in some medicine. He then continued exploring the depths of 
my oral cavity. Suddenly he ejaculated, "Gosh! A swell state board foil!" I 
thought so myself. When he finally let me go, after I promised to come back 
on Thursday, I ran to the nearest phone, called up Dr. Brown and made an 
appointment for the next day. 




A TRIBUTE TO OUR FRIEND THE DENTIST 

Our relation to the dentist is an interesting one. He relieves our ills, repairs 
our negligence and blunders, usually with sympathy and skill. With friendly 
insight he tells us the story of our misconduct. With plain, direct wisdom he 
counsels us as to daily conduct and practice. His warnings are based on facts 
with little of theory. 

The skill of an able dentist is a matter of mystery and admiration. His 
craftsmanship runs into delicate surgery, or is akin to that of the artisan in 
jewelry. One remarked to us with modesty: "A dentist is a super-tinker." 
From that array of tiny instruments he must select just the right one for use in 
a minute, often obscure, spot. He must apply force with amazing nicety. Be- 
hind the infinitesimal though hard wall is the nerve. With only experience and 
judgment to guide him, the dentist measures its thickness as with an instrument 
of precision ; he determines its degree of resistance to his gnawing tool. A mis- 
calculation and his work is lost ; the plan of restoration destroyed — and, im- 
portant to us, shrill pain and maybe the loss of a tooth. Yet we seldom hear 
of such mishaps. Our own experience reports no such happening, and sug- 
gests only admiration for the skill, gentleness, and wisdom of the dentist. 

We like them, too, on their personal side. Those we know have an amusing 
knowledge of human nature, seen in miniature crises that display it brazenly. 
With exhibits of weakness, cowardice, even, they are very tolerant. We like 
their testimony to the nerve and courage of women. They seem to have a tire- 
less interest in their patients as cases and as persons. 

Because of the skill of its practitioners, and of their public and individual 
service in matters of health, dentistry stands high among the benign professions. 
Happy the man, and happy the family, that has a good dentist !

DO YOU REMEMBER WAY BACK WHEN: 

You were getting ready to sever the old home ties for the first time and take 
up life anew at C. C. D. S. 

It was a great week, that last one at home, wasn't it? 

Your mother bought new socks and pajamas and undies and everything and 
you had to have a trunk and a handbag and a box of stationery and a little 
Bible and then you went down to see your best girl for the last time before 
going to the city. And your girl, how proud she was that you were going and 
how she liked to have you say that she was the cause of it all, the big inspira- 
tion. Sure you do because Dr. Kendall says it happened to the best of us and 
you're no exception. And then when the train whistled in and you were ready 
to whistle out how kinda funny you felt and as you leaned out of the train win- 
dow and looked down at the old bridge over Inlet creek, where you carved your 
initials, and how you just couldn't hold back no longer and after a good cry 
you began to sit up and take notice of a good looking girl across the aisle and 
you felt yourself slipping and wished you hadn't told your girl what you did, 
but you finally lived down that episode until you arrived at C. C. D. S. And 
then, wotta life. You forgot where you put the Bible. You gave away all the 
stationery. Your socks were the only (holy) thing you possessed. The pajamas 
were torn off when you got your first tubbing, and your undies — well, they aren't 
as good as when you left home ; and your girl — three letters the first week, then 
two for a couple of weeks, and finally one when you thought of her, and just 
the other day she wanted to know what's got into you. And you be blamed if 
you could think until all at once you remembered that you went to Dreamland 
with Luke Hartford one night and what you saw would make the boys at home 
green with envy and then you remembered that it wasi love at first sight and 
surely your Dreamland girl was a dream and how could the boys at home be 
satisfied with just the common, unsophisticated country girls and then you woke 
up one morning dead broke, and got a letter from your Dad asking if you pur- 
chased the college and another from your girl saying she was done, and dis- 
covered you had two flunks and right then and there you wished you had 
studied, and read the Bible and written to your girl and saved vour money and 
was genuinely depressed until some wise Soph said this was all a part of your 
education and you started all over again. 

I thank you. — /. C. Brady. 



It has been learned that Louis Pavlicek has invented a new way of applying 
the rubber dam, and is to give a lecture on same in the near future. The feature 
of his new method is chiefly because of its economical value, as only a piece of 
rubber an inch square is required. 



In a Thursday Exodontia Clinic recently, there was no running water and 
the patients had no place to expectorate after having had their teeth extracted ; 
but Cody and Martin came through with some helpful suggestions, and saved 
the day.

Once upon a time there was a handsome youth, full of ambition, honest, 
courageous and industrious. His folks and friends were mighty proud of him. 
He had a wonderful future. He was destined to become wealthy and famous. 
His name would become as famous as King Tut's and would grace the best 
social registers and appear in "Who's Who." For was not our hero studying 
dentistry ? Already indications pointed to his becoming a second Brophy, Logan 
or Johnson. But alas and alack, gentle reader. A remarkable change had over- 
taken our hero. While in his Junior year he was stricken with a peculiar 
malady, lazitis, caused by the bacillus "lounge around." Our hero developed 
a love for Dudley's hashery, C. L. Frame's and S. S. White's. The basement was 
frequently massaged by his slow-moving feet. At 5 minute intervals, he would 
run downstairs and. lighting a fragrant Camel, would ensconce himself com- 
fortably on one of the benches and drift away in a reverie of girls, dances and 
theatres. He often held his patients in the chair while he did this. Returning 
to the infirmary he would hastily insert a piece of temporary stopping into his 
patient's teeth and dismiss him even though he had an hour or two more at 
his disposal. He would neglect to sign up for patients. He often navigated to 
Jack and Denny's emporium nearby and when the baseball season opened he 
was among the first in the bleachers. Following the final examinations, our 
hero received a letter statins: that on account of three conditions and almost no 
points, his services were no longer required. Enclosed was a timetable for 
Indianapolis, Louisville and Kansas Citv. Moral — draw your own.

Most of us have been wondering where our instruments are disappearing 
to. At a recent dinner dance great commotion was caused when Harold G. 
Kessling lost considerable silverware from his pockets, which evidently had been 
pocketed during the course of the dinner. Judge for yourself.

CONSIDER THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE THING 

I 
He wedges two sound teeth apart, 

Of my pale face disdainful ; 
I hear him, with a sinking heart 

Declare : "This can't be painful !" 
He rudely pokes an agile nerve 

And pours hot acid in it ; 
And stops a second to observe : 

"This only takes a minute." 
And I, who sit there, gagged and bound, 

Am powerless to make a sound. 

II 
He now and then assumes an air 

Of stern and stoic virtue. 
While I am panting in his chair, 

And mutters : "This may hurt you ; 
One wouldn't think to look at you 
That you were temperamental. 
Don't dodge me, I will soon be through, 

And I will be quite gentle." 
And I, who writhe upon the rack 

Am impotent to answer back. 

Ill 
I think of what I'm going to say, 

Grim, bitter, and sarcastic ; 
When from my gums he takes away 

That gag of damp elastic. 
But when the torturing is past, 

With gratitude a-flutter ; 
To feel that I am free at last, 

I shake his hand and mutter : 
"It wasn't I that asked to quit — 

You dentists never hurt a bit !" 



WOULD YOU ? 



A pretty girl leaned back in a big chair — a man bent questioningly over her. 
All was quiet. The oyster-gray walls of the room, with their pale mauve fringes, 
seemed to soothe the rush of feeling that his presence aroused in her, and she 
'■tied her eyes confidingly to his. 

There was a moment of tenseness. She was waiting — waiting in eager 
anticipation. There was something she wanted to say — yet she could not speak. 
Everything was so still, she could almost hear his heart beating. Suddenly a 
sigh fluttered from her lips. She lifted her eyes to his again; but this time 
pain lay deep in their depths. 

"You hurt me," she quavered, timorously. 

"No, no," he said softly. "Just once more," and his head bent closer to 
hers. A moment or two only, and he drew himself erect. 

"Yes, I think I can save that tooth. There is no need of extracting it," 
he said.

THE PRICE OF SOPHISTICATION 

When you take a freshman to entertain don't you start him out over the 
campus? To the hospital, around through the morgue and up Ashland to 
Baker's. "This is the Psi O house," you explain. Two nurses come in that 
you know and you give the freshman a thrill as he meets his first Chicago girl 
(who is probably from Farmer City, S. Dak.). You talk to the girls awhile. 
Then suddenly think that you should sit down, you do and order for the crowd. 
After spending fifty cents and a half hour 1 sipping chocolate malted milk you 
suggest walking with the air of a man who knows. At the training school you 
shock the freshmen by the finesse with which you batter down the nurse's 
feminine barrier and kiss her. You suggest stopping at Felix Tomei's on the 
way back, but the freshman says, "I'd rather not." You go on home. You're 
not sure but that the freshman has been bored — you have been. 

The freshman says to himself, as he undresses, "Gee ! I think I'll get my 
hair cut that way. I like that shirt he had on. Think I'll buy one like it 
tomorrow. Let's see, what was that girl's name? Oh yes, Helen. Say, boy, 
I think I'm going to like it here!" 

See what you miss by being a Junior! — Ox. 



BILL 

If you've left your outfit out and can't find it, don't you ask Bill for it? 

When the patient wants the plate the next day and you want it vulcanized 
properly, you ask Bill to do it, of course. 

When your plate comes out distorted or full of holes, or you miscast an 
inlay, who is more sympathetic than Bill ? 

Listen, men ! Bill smokes ! — Ox.

GUILTY? 

The future dentist slowly raised his head, straightened his shoulders and 
gave a sigh of relief. He) had just put the finishing touches on a gold foil. 
The polish on it was so mirror-like that the happy student could see his own 
reflection in it. Unconsciously, his chest swelled with pride and satisfaction. 
Here, indeed, was a filling that could not be beaten. He would surely get a 9 and 
7 or 8 points for it. In a somewhat haughty and supercilious voice he called 
the demonstrator over and asked him to look at his masterpiece. The heartless 
demonstrator took the explorer, sank it into the foil up to the hilt, gracefully 
removed the filling and held it before the eyes of the thunderstruck student. 
The latter's eyelids flickered uncertainly for a moment, his face a deathly white, 
and cold beads of perspiration on his forehead. The puzzled expression on his 
face was so ludicrous it would be laughable were not the situation so tragic and 
heartrending. A slight flush now superseded the whiteness of his countenance, 
black dancing specks appeared before his eyes and the disillusioned student sank 
to the floor in utter oblivion.

After Solomon had announced that there would be no class in Materia 
Medica, Solfrong politely informed him that his voice was too soft for the 
"Enuncifier." I suppose he's the bird whose sister was afflicted with "Peoria."

ALIAS THE ORAL ORIFICE 



Col. John L. Sheppard says : 

The mouth is one of the most important organs of the human body. It is 
located in the lower part of the face for the purpose of talking, laughing, sing- 
ing, eating, drinking, kissing, and is a place where whiskers meet and part. 

It smokes, drinks, swears, lies, prays, and tells the truth — sometimes. 

Some mouths look like Cupid's bow, and remind you of heaven. Others look 
like a Frankfurter sandwich, and remind you of the other place. 

Some have an odor of roses and others smell like limberger cheese. 

It's a corn sheller, meat chopper, potato masher, nut cracker, bone polisher 
and hash machine. 

It's a receptacle for peanuts, popcorn, chestnuts and a tango hall for chew- 
ing gum. 

It's a cavern for ice cream, candy, soda and a garbage can for chocolate. 

It's a palace for lobsters, oysters, clams, salads and a pantry for pie. 

It's a cuspidor for chewing tobacco, snuff, pipes, cigars and a woodshed for 
toothpicks. 

It's the old maid's reservoir for tea and cocoa and the coffee fiend's fore- 
taste of heaven. 

It's the grocer's friend, the butcher's vault for the dead, the rumseller's 
sewer and the dentist's safe deposit for gold. 

It's the druggist's medicine chest for pills, castor oil, and other delicacies 
and the undertaker's funeral director. 

It's the rich man's buffet for wines, cocktails and champagne, and the poor 
man's rumshop for whiskey, rum and beer. 

It's the widow's lamenter, the bachelor's rejoicer, the lover's persuader and 
the stenographer's charmer.

ON THE RETURN OF A FOUNTAIN PEN LOANED TO A FRIEND 

I now give thanks for the safe return of this fountain pen which, having 
endured the perils of my friend's pocket and the pockets of my friend's 
friends, is returned to me in a reasonably good condition. 

I am glad that my friend did not see fit to give it to the baby as a plaything 
or a teething ring, nor use it as a screw driver nor as an initial carver. 

This pen I had given up as lost. When I loaned it it was with a feeling of 
final parting. I never thought to look again at the unintelligible scrawl it created. 

But now that my pen is back to me I give thanks. I am exceedingly thank- 
ful ! Bring forth the Carters — we shall fill it up and write once more the 
familiar scrawl characteristic of us. 

Presently I shall return my friends' Goslees and Flasks. — Ox. 



WE WONDER: 

If Blair and Galbraith made a wish would it be for a Goldstein? 

Since Agress and Abrams live in Chicago, is it a Rothenburg? 

If Warren and Drury were robbing hens' roosts, would they use Sachs? 

If Orendorff and Reynolds were fishing would they catch Pike? 

If Grindy and Sharf answered the same matrimonial ad, would they know 
her if they'd Meder? 

If Knospe asked Thesen for a date would he Stryker? 

If Quart and Pavlicek will ever be as wise as Solomon? 

Does McLaughlin express his idiosyncrasies with a Penn ? To be Schur ! 
To be Schur! 

When Slater goes to bed are the pictures turned to the wall before his naked- 
ness is Stark? 

If Weismuller discovered another furuncle, would he give forth blessings or 
an Oaf? —Ox.

PROLOGUE. 

It is any day of the week, say Wednesday. We find a heterogeneous con- 
glomeration of embryo dentists, of the junior and senior species, scattered at 
random in the senior laboratory, each one filling the role of a diligent "labber." 

One cannot appreciate this unless he has at sometime or other been in the 
predicament of the characters to be. Hence ye of the upper classes, see your- 
selves as others see you. 

SCENE I. 

Enter a wild-eyed Junior with an impression tray in one hand, a plaster 
bowl and an insufficient allotment of impression compound in the other. 

The Junior, alias Bill Coughlin : 

"Who's got some vaseline?" — (is greeted by an ominous silence) — "Don't 
all speak at once, just a little bit of vaseline" (more ominous silence). Busi- 
ness of "labbers" appearing diligently occupied. Bill makes the rounds hur- 
riedly, receiving the fish eye from everyone and vaseline from no one. 

Exalted Senior, Jocka Lynch : 

"Mine's in my case upstairs, Bill, sorry." (This one is very popular and is 
used more than most others of the alibi family.) 

Fellow Junior, Jim Dillon : 

"Look in my box, Bill. I think you'll find it on top." (He knows darn well 
there's none there, but wants to appear generous. This one also gets a big play 
by the alibiers, and so on. Down the line, no vaseline.) 

Shorty Abrahams : 

"Rudy's is still open, Coughlin. They still sell it for a dime!" 

One more appealing glance at the assembled prosthetists and Bill rambles 
out to charge it at Rudy's. Impression tray still dangling from one hand. p. b. 
and impression compound from the other. 

From out of the midst of the rabble comes a racous shout from Radio Spick 
Spickerman, lungiest of a loud lungy lot : 

"Ta-de-de-da-da-Da ! Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in 

the ," the rest is lost in the screeching of the lathes, both of 'em ! 

SCENE II. 

Enters a meek Freshman, present only in the line of duty, the salvaging of 
an underpacked plate from the vulcanizer. Said infant is spied by Bernie Cutler 
and immediately razzing is in order. 

Cutler: "Freshman out! Freshman out!" 

Cry is immediately taken up by fellow hecklers, Peruna Cody, Jake Stahl, 
Bill Lemaster and Swede Kangas : 

"Outside, outside, take the air, take the air, Freshman out !"

The victim gives an excellent imitation of active hyperemia, hesitates — stops 
— forges ahead, stops again — slowly marches toward the vulcanizer and as cries 
and whoopings redouble in fervor, thinks better of it and flees out the side door 
in consternation. He didn't need the flask anyhow. It can wait 'til noon when 
there's not so many in the lab. — anyhow, he should be working on that partial 
for Dr. Hambleton this morning ! He'd show these cocky upper classmen ! 
Mrs. Prestley, from the doorway: 

"Who wants a partial plate?" 

She makes herself heard after the fourth attempt and 
immediately — gets no response. After canvassing the 
lab. she finds that Bill Loewy hasn't got "three partials on 
hand now," "a plate to pack and a Richmond to solder" 
or "a patient in the chair now," and leads him off to uphold 
the reputation of the college. Little does Bill reck that 
this case is another "turnover" Oh "turnovers" what 
crimes have been committed in thy name, how often have 
the lives of earnest students been sacrificed on the block 
of somebody else's hard luck ! 

A comparative lull — Spick takes advantage and vocally 
describes the fineness of Carolina in the morning for the 
benefit of those who didn't hear it the first time. He has 
two assistants now, Stratton and Valentino Smith, sitting 
in to say : 

"Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearly early 
in the morning!" 

Dark Horse Lux : "He}' — who took my plaster bowl ? 

I just laid it here on the table and went to get my spatula ! 

Who got it, huh?" (After the jam of the restitution is 

over and two have been badly injured in the earnest rush of restitution, Lux 

contents himself with picking up the bowl nearest at hand and strolling off to 

the plaster jar, mumbling to himself acidly — not about the Dentos.) 

Joe Sherman tears into the line at the lathe, a pale, pink, full lower in his 
hand: "Say, Geffert, let me take this down right here on the periphery. I 
won't be a minute and I've got a patient waiting in the chair." (A half hour 
later Joe decides to use a knife and the lathe rips merrily on under Charlie's 
careful guidance.) 

The announcer nasally pipes out: "Mr. Rosin, Mr. 
E. Rosin, West telephone, Mr. Rosin." (This always 
gets a big laugh.) Gene stops in the midst of packing 
a plate and warns Irv Rothenberg to "Keep an eye on 
this stuff, Irv," while he goes to answer the phone. 

His warning is a cue for Rothenberg to go down to 
Dudley's for another chocolate malted so he can more 
easily watch Rosin's stuff. Gene returns and finds his 
spatula and two flask bolts missing. Morrie Schneider, 
being nearest at hand, gets the blame for not watching. 
Schneider: "How do you get that way? I been wait- 
ing to get at that lathe for an hour, and didn't even knoWjjgf-aay 
you'd gone. One lathe for 200 students! Some joint, /ftlE^ 








I 












this is! It's a wonder C. X. doesn't snap out of it and give us some equip- 
ment. Hey, Bill, when are they gonna get some new lathes around here?" 

Bill, the vulcanizingest bird old C. C. D. S. has ever known, with an injured 
air of self defense: (Why make him the goat?) 

"I don't know, my boy, I'm not supposed to look after everything around 
this place. Why don't you see Esterbrooks?" 

So that's that, try and get 'em ! In the meantime, Rosin being unable to 
borrow any bolts from those who know him, beats it to White's to purchase 
three bolts, one for his remaining one which will, no doubt, have been "bor- 
rowed" when he returns. 

SCENE III. 

"Lordy me, what a great delight, when I get a familiar sight," Spick's 
quartet is still at it; McLaughlin having rounded out the mourners' quota and 
the gang cuts loose with "Tomorrow" to the zealous accompaniment of divers 
and sundry plaster bouquets, not such soft plaster either. Sheik Sulaimen inno- 
cently intercepts one of the agile projectiles with his classic brow and immedi- 
ately the fighting light of the far east flashes from his coal black optics : 

"All right, fellows, that's enough. You very nearly made me drop this 
model." 

The Sheik's invitation is accepted with alacrity and he becomes the recipient 
of numerous kindly offered wet towels, broken models, empty plaster boxes, etc. 
The fire in his eyes redoubles its brightness. 

"Come on now, cut it out, that's too much." (He means it this time and as a 
result the bombardment ceases — for fully a minute. ) After the next barrage 
he accuses Luety in angry reprimand while the obliging quartet wails an appro- 
priate funeral dirge. After he and Luety both win the verbal debate, although 
the Sheik is really ahead by two rigid forefinger shakes, he settles down grimly, 
not to work, but to a policy of watchful waiting, his black mustachio abristle, 
his deep brown complexion deepened considerably by the anger coursing through 
his veins — a minute passes — the badgered one is sorely smitten atop his raven 
locks and a coffee colored tornado breaks loose, heaping imprecations upon 
whoever it is who persists in throwing plaster. 

He rants and tears. 
His teeth he bares, 
He flingeth casts 
He flingeth chairs — 
and still the culprit has not been apprehended. After futilely extolling the 
evils of pegging pests in general, he calls on Allah for aid and then, reinspired 
as it were, puts all the blame on Luety, who really only threw about seven 
times. The act gets a big hand and numerous guffaws from the audience, 
Leuty profanely protests his innocence and the Sheik is routed. 

"Dr. Puterbaugh will hear of this at once," he fumes, "I've had too much 
and besides I have a patient in the infirmary." (This last is said to himself 
alone as he hastily picks up his instruments, folds his tent silently and as silently 
steals away.) 

SCENE IV. 

Dr. Salazar, the George Washington of denture workers, enters the lab. : 

"Who can speak Jewish?" 

Jiggs O'Donahue volunteers to do the honors and bedlam is re-established 
when Sally disappears. 

Red Kleiman is helping Izzy Slavin to solder a Richmond. After futilely 
coaxing the solder to become more intimately acquainted with the backings for 
an hour and a half the task is done and Slavin immediately immerses the in- 



174

vestment containing Richmond in water, the result being a beautiful, concentric- 
ally arranged, checked facing. Kleiman roundly balls out Izzy. Izzy cusses fer- 
vently and copiously. The bible is referred to often by both debaters and still 
the facing remains checked. 

Izzy: "Oy, the patient is in the chair, too. What to do. Red. what to do?" 
Red : "Dumbbell, you're the one to blame, 

I should worry, douse that flame, 
Give me back my blow-pipe, too, 
Stall 'em off, it's up to you." 
Red piles his blow-pipe, soldering block, box of flux, tweezers, Bunson 
burner and tin instrument box into a pile, the while berating Izzy roudly for 
each of the fifty-seven varieties of dumbbell on the map. He reaches for the 
wire gauze which was atop his burner during the process of soldering. Slavin 
did not dip that into water. 

Red picks it up, it's hot, it burns, it blisters, too. 

His yelp nigh splits the air in two 

As down he flings it to the floor. 

His other junk flops — gee ! he's sore. 

One awful crash, a messy litter, 

The oaths flay thick, though Red's no quitter ! 

In recognition of the rattling thud of falling 
instruments, vocal pandemonium reigns in the 
senior lab. This is one thing that gets a unan- 
imous rise from both juniors and seniors. 
Everybody joins in the whining, shrilling, trill- 

^ ing. whistling. Myriad proxy factory whistles

— ' V "=- - ' *?2r :K& ^ the downfall of a fellow student with his instru- 

ments. 

The mob: "Whur-r-r, Whur Whuu-u-u-u-u-r-r— WHU— U— U— U— U— 
R-R-R !" 

And so it goes until the bunch is out of gas. I reallv can't spell that siren- 
like whistle at all like it sounds, so if you wish to get the straight dope on it, 
drop around some day, any day, and you'll be able to give your ears a treat. 

SCENE V. 

It's almost noon hour. The line at the lathe is twice as long now as it was. 
Kangaroo Leavitt is polishing a plate. His patient is due the following Satur- 
day. The bunch sticks around, panning C. N., panning Logan, panning John, 
the chief broom chaperone, panning the school, panning everything and every- 
body about the shortage of lathes. Sam Goldstein freights himself into the 
waiting crew. 

Sam : "Hey, Unconscious, you been on there an hour now and ain't got 
anything done yet. Come to and let a good man work." 

Voice from announcer : 

"Mr. Leavitt, Mr. Harold Leavitt, Plate room, Mr. Leavitt." A worried 
frown shoots up in front of Leavitt's pompadour. The eager half dozen 
waiters leap forward expectantly like wolves to a hamburger steak. An 
expectant, avaricious light shines brightly in the eyes of Goldstein. His chance 
for the lathe ! Leavitt polishes a mere 75 minutes longer and reluctantly goes 
to answer his summons, inquiring plaintively : 

"You'll let me finish, won't you, boys, 
If this plate needs a polished poise?"

"Oh yes, sure, you can come back and finish any time, 
We'll let you have it 'til that plate's sublime." 
(Oh ye-s, let him have it, sure! Let him try and get it!) 
Leavitt kangaroos plate-room-ward and immediately there's a wild, scrim- 
magy, sedate attack on the lathe. When the smoke clears up Butch Goldstein 
is serenely at work removing surplus rubber from a partial lower. The unsuc- 
cessful contestants view him with hopeless chagrin and silently curse his avoir- 
dupois — except Rubitz Art, who mildly protests : 

"Come, Sam, we're all ahead of you, been waiting for two hours, 
So let me on, I'll soon be through, or must 't be said with flowers?" 
Sam stops long enough to donate a deep equine chuckle. (Better not rile 
that box of T. N. T., Butch, or he's liable to explode!) 

Art: (With firmer, deeper mein and tone, doth acquiesce contention's bone.) 

"All right, bum, outside, gangway, I crave action 
Unless you'd join the has-been faction." 

Butch Goldstein says : 

"Begone, thou wart, or I shall sneeze 
And you'll vacate your B. V. D.'s." 
Now the wart don't believe in snappy come-backs, so he carefully lays down 
his upper partial, urgently applies a foot where it'll do the most good, percepi- 
tates a few rapid vanishing passes in the geography of a florid Hebraic face and 
Goldstein passes the door at a helter-skelter tangent, in the general direction of 
out. (For the answer, see page 947.) 

"Toot, Toot, Tootsie, good-bye, Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Don't cry."' 
They're in again. The mourners' bench is more densely populated with 
Schlocker and Charlie Ackerman doing their best to distribute crepe. 

Lucretia Knospe has witnessed Sam's forced exodus from the lab and stops 
work on a MacBoyle long enough to drawl, with the melodious voice of a lawn 
mower with the diphtheria : 

Your physique staunch and trim, 
Your Pluto-cratic attitude. 
(Oh. Beatrice Fairfax, did I do right in telling him?") 
Enter a dashing Philipino lounge lizard, mouth agape, tongue 
lolling out and eyes representing the well known saucers. 
Ramos: "Bike, Bike, oh where is Bike? 

My patient, he is come — 
He has a inlay I doon't like, 
Where's Bike, I'll make a new one." 
Pike appears and great is Aurelio's rejoicing. Xow they can 
work on his inlay. ("You tal 'em, keedo.") 

SCENE VI 

Heine Otten is telling another story. Hoatsen, Bill Shippee

Stearns, the irrepressible, pussyfoots in :

"Sweet Rosie O'Grady" rises in strain serene above the din of the lathe, the 
scraping of chairs and the dropping of instruments, as the latest offering in 
grand uproar. 

SCENE VII. 

Turmoil off- stage as of two skeletons putting on a mean toddle on a tin 
roof and a boiler-maker playing the xylophone at a wake. Noskin then brings 
the riot into the lab : 

Noskin : "Well, what could I do, I ask you ? She wouldn't bring any 
dough, so I applied the rubber dam and dismissed her for three days. Now she 
shows up and asks me for postage money for the clamps and the ligatures, which 
she's sold to a dentist in Kokomo. I — quack — quack — quack — quack." 

His silent partner, Solomon, don't even get a chance to get his hands warm 
too. Since Noskin has been on his feet the ground has been pretty well cov- 
ered. He talks poor Harry into one door and out the other. Business of 
prosthesis is still uninterrupted. 

Bill Redlich offers his contribution to the "worst joke I ever heard" column. 
Socrates Schwartz, who manipulates a mean oesphagus at the pipe stem end of 
an epileptic saxaphone, inquires of Bill in decorous effort of gaining informa- 
tion: 

"Bill, can you tell me what nationality Napoleon was?" 

Redlich replies : "Cors-i-can" (not realizing that he is pulling the Bon y 
parte!) 

The angry choristers are now engaged in rendering "In the sweet bye and 
bye" to the latest jazzy accompaniment. (Some people have absolutely no 
respect for the dead whatever.) 

Why look at that — of course, I'm right — even as I glance hither and yon, 
in search of a "borrowed" flask-wrench, Little Eva Desenis rudely socks Brodie 
Williams in the Sta-Comb with a castoff Weinstein box. Highly cullud South- 
ern adjectives accompany the socking, suh ! 

SCENE VIII. 
Dick Murphy and George Christolodides (this last is not malignant, merely 
acquired) are observed in a corner giving Hall, Roubert and Salazar a few min- 
utes of personal instruction on "the soldering of aluminum plates and why."

Murphy : 

"The impression need not fit so well, 

The bite is not essential, 
The patient, men, can never tell, 

My work is my credential. 
Why, in my lab. I've several men 

Who do this while they sleep, 
Then I go out and get the yen 

An Osteopath's wife to keep." 
Hall: 
"But, doctors, there's the muscle trim, 

The casts that need be modeled — 
And plaster, too, is not a whim, 

I learned that when I toddled." 



Salazar 



"Some of these patients kick a lot 
And crab about the new plate's size ; 

Please tell me how to solve the plot 
And bring relief into their eyes." 



"If they say Mississippi twice 

And don't regurgitate, 
I'd 'open,' 'close,' then 'vulcanize' 
Say, have I got that straight ?" 
Christolodides (revered and respected for his knowledge, the veritable Jack 
Dempsey of the plate repair work) : 

"My judges all, plate work for me 
Is quite a set-up, as you see — 
I'd answer each one of you three 
But my time's up, time sure does flee. 
I'll come next week and talk again ; 
I hope you'll all improve by then." 
Thereupon he of the quarantined name ambles out, gets into his car and 
walks home. The trio of knowledge seekers are sadly disgruntled at still being 
left in the dark as to plate work. They make themselves solemn promises to 
study up and surprise their venerable instructor at the next meeting. Mean- 
while Murphy has been called out on a house case, an osteopathic treatment 
being required on a badly rumpled set of spats at Leland G. Meder's palatial 
residence. 

Palestrant enters : 

"Somebody give me a polishing outfit, or what have you?" (no luck, his 
reputation has preceded him and Charley goes to join Sterns in rating all dental 
students as a bunch of premeditated tightwads, with two exceptions). 

Scene closes with Cecil Alonzo McPherson and Adolphus Grindv, in com- 
petition with the regular entertainers, soulfully rendering "My Little Gray Home 
in the West," in two flats. The gang unanimously favors their execution. 

SCENE IX. 

'Tis now 5 :45 and a mere handful of "Labbers" remain, zealously putting in 
the finishing touches to a perfect day.

rumbling revolutions, emits a rasping death rattle, and — dies. The juice is off ! 

Maurer : 

"?*!$% — (+ = ce $%????* one lathe for 200 students and that 
lays down on you when you've put in half the day waiting. W'otta life, wotta

the premises.) 

Kokot : (Putting the finishing touches to an overpacked plate.) 

"How many points you got, Frame? Will you spend your summer vacation 
with the boys in the infirmary this summer? Do you think Kendall will give 
us an exam, in Materia Medica tomorrow?" 

Frame: "Now I'll tell one — Yeh — Naw, we had one last semester." 

McElroy is having a quiet chew to end the day as he cleans up an inlay 
ring. He can carve it up again tomorrow, if the patient doesn't disappoint him 
again. 

McElroy: "What time is it, Biedka?" 

John answers as he enters : 

"All right, boys, it's 6 o'clock, 
Right here the names of lingerers flock, 
Please sign your name to my roll call 
You'll see P. G. if you must stall." 

Biedka, McElroy, Leavitt, Asher and Silhane joyfully affix their John 
Henry's to John's swindle sheet. 

Lights snap out one by one — Here and there a locker door snaps shut — 
locks click their farewell notices — a hurried step of homeward trend echoes 
from the empty plate room as the swan song is sung for the day. 

From the front exit comes a final echo as Spickerman and his yodelers 
whimper in a grand vocal finale, "Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina 
in the MORN-ING!"

CURSES, BR-R-R 

With a fiendish and demoniacal expression, his face distorted with rage and 
malevolence, his body quivering with relentless fury and hate, his eyes ablaze 
with wrath and loathing, he tightly grasped the long, glistening steel weapon 
with its razor-like edge and without the slightest hesitation he plunged it into

Scharf — "That's nothing. My father's got Adam's apple." 



Schneider — "Say, Gene, do you know, some of our instructors remind me 
of the French at Verdun when their general made that immortal remark." 

Rossen — "Why, how's that, Morris?" 

Schneider — "They are also using that famous expression, 'They shall not

"Will you please o. k. this slip?" 

Dr. Radell — "Now listen, Schur. you wouldn't go up to Dr. Logan and tap

It was stated at a recent faculty meeting that if the riots before classes in

MALLET MUSINGS 

When you've finished a foil 

After many hours' toil 
And you think the result is quite fine, 

And the doctor inspects it, 

With explorers he pecks it, 
And says, "See if you can't make it shine!' 

Don't think him unfair 

Or give him a stare 
Or think of bricks in large amounts. 

Put a shine on to stay 

If it takes you all day. 
For it's "pleasing the doctor" that counts.

DeKoven and Sam Goldstein staged a novel gastronomic feat last week.

They tell us that it is necessary to be a good salesman in dentistry. After 
listening to the twaddle and idle claptrap that some of the students hand out we 
are inclined to the belief that dentistry is really a selling game. Here in the 
college, we must induce the patients to have gold fillings instead of amalgams ; 
gold plates instead of vulcanite ; gold removable bridges instead of vulcanite, 
etc. Several students are even guilty of advising their patients to have ex- 
tracted a tooth that might possibly be saved in order to insert a fixed bridge. 
And other students, sad to state, are guilty of deliberately * * * * In our 
mad rush for points some fellows would sell their souls for a few fillings or 
bridges. 



Dr. Grisainore — "Of what material is the alignment wire constructed?" 
Agress — "It's made out of wire.'' 



Dr. Puterbaugh — "What force would you use in extracting an upper lat- 
eral ?" 

Rossen — "A lateral force." 



SacJis — "Say, Knospe, you'll have to give a conductive in extracting that 
lower molar." 

Knospe — "Oh, I don't know. I think novocain will work just as well." 



Young Leavitt, our precocious equestrian, was busily engaged in preparing a 
cavity in the mouth of a patient. After drilling away for several minutes, he 
withdrew his handpiece and poked his ruddy proboscis into his patient's mouth 
to observe the condition of the cavity. He noticed that there was considerable 
debris and dust so pursing his lips and filling his cheeks with air, he blew as hard 
as he could into the patient's mouth. Upon being informed that a chip-blower 
is used for this purpose, he earnestly protested that he had never seen one. 



Knospe, alias Brophy, was expounding some dental information to three 
women in the infirmary. In a solemn and almost tearful voice he said, "No, 
I don't like gold in front." 



Just before an exam, in crown and bridge several students were reviewing the 
subject. "Now, what is another disadvantage of the steel facing?" one fellow 
asked. Whereupon our jovial Lerner promptly replied, "Well, since it is made 
of steel, we cannot burnish it very well to the facing." 



Dr. Kendall — "Considered chemically, what is CH 2 0?" 

Knospe — "It's an alcohol ; no, it's a secondary alcohol ; I mean it's an alde- 
hyde." 



There is only one thing that Goldstein can't eat for breakfast, and that's 
supper. 



"You don't love me any more," she sobbed and bowed her head, 

"Wotael's the difference!" the dirty rascal said. 

She crept up to the scales, like an Arab, and silently stole a weigh.

WILL THIS EVER HAPPEN TO YOU? 

He passed the state board with flying colors. As soon as he received his 
license he opened an office and began waiting for patients. His first patient was 
an attractive young lady whom he thought looked familiar but couldn't recall 
her name or where he had seen her. After she was seated in the chair he 
examined her mouth and started to sell her a few fillings. "Doctor," said the 
fair one slyly, "look at this gold filling. Do you think I need a new one there? 
It looks as though it were about to fall out." Glancing at the cavity, the young 
doc exclaimed, "Why, that's an awful filling. Who put it in? The margins are 
rotten and it isn't carved at all. I would advise you to have a new one put in 
as it is beginning to decay around the margins." "Well," replied the girl mis- 
chieviously, "your memory has certainly failed you. Don't you remember you 
put that filling in at the Dental College less than a year ago and assured me that 
it was a wonderful rilling and would last a lifetime?" The Doc was thunder- 
struck ! He blushed to the roots of his hair and stammered some unintelligible 
excuses. The prospective patient thoroughly enjoyed his discomfiture and 
slipping out of the chair put her coat and hat on and vanished, never to return.

A JUNIOR'S DREAM 
Last night I had a wonderful dream. I dreamed that I was all out in points, 
according to the April posting. Now I would have plenty of time to run down 
to the State and Lake, to the ball game, to the beach or park. I would gaze 
contemptuously at the poor fish who had to slave away during the hot days in 
an effort to make up their points. Needless to say, my rosy dream was ruth- 
lessly shattered when I awoke. Hastily dressing and scarcely eating anything 
I hurried to the college, ran up to the second floor and breathlessly searched 
my card. All I could see was a blurred aggregation of figures that seemed to 
point their fingers in scorn and mockery at me. With a sickening, sinking sen- 
sation at my stomach I added up the stupendous total of 127 points ! 



Oppenheim, our swarthy purveyor of brooches, burs, trays, spatulas and con- 
tact points, was examining the mouth of a patient. Upon observing that the 
patient had his lower right molars missing, he said confidently, "Yes. I can 
make vou a one-tooth removable bridge here." 



COME BACKS. ETC. 
Dr. Kendall — "What is a counter-irritant?" 
Cutler — "A woman shopping." 



The inhabitants of the town that Brady comes from don't bury their dead. 
They just let them walk around. 



Keep her picture in your watch. You'll love her in time. 



"Santa Claus plaved a dirty trick on the bow-legged girls."

"See what he put in their stockings !" 



Leland Meder has discovered a new technic in the filling of tortuous roots 
of third molars, and is to lecture on same before the next meeting of the

Sophomore Class Chronicle 

That class of "25" may it work, play and prosper in the future as it has in 
the past. The past ; it is well worth reviewing perhaps just what that past 
represents. Our first year, although that does seem to be a terribly remote 
period, was filled with the trials and tribulations confronting any "stranger in 
a strange land." These were overcome with a doggedness and perseverance which 
have placed their stamp upon our class as one of the best in scholarship as well 
as in fellowship. 

The officers for our first year, elected shortly after school convened, showed 
that no mistake was made in our choice. Walla Tate served us well as president. 
Helmey 's efficiency as vice-president was surprising. Ryan was a faithful 
treasurer. Smith did well with the pen and Dietz made a worthy sergeant-at- 
arms. The staff of the Dentos was headed by J. O. Flood, with A. W. Kellner 
and G. M. Quinn as assistants. Buyer was the cartoonist and Mcintosh the busi- 
ness manager. The product of their diligent work is surely their greatest praise. 
F. Yager, R. Claffin, I. Helmey and J. Schwartz were later elected to represent 
the class in the students' council. • 

Our second year began auspiciously with the return of the boys, enthusiastic, 
eager for the resumption of the work and determined to make this a banner 
year in our history. At our first meeting in the amphitheater we noted a few 
new faces. These men were warmly welcomed into the make-up of our class 
as in accordance with our usual sociability. 

Except for those provided by the several fraternities the year closed devoid 
of social activities unless "roughneck day" could be considered as such. On 
this noteworthy occasion the freshmen suffered at the hands of the sophomores 
and vice versa. In comparison to this dearth of social functions our class work 
was of a high quality, proving the time well spent. 

In spite of the fact that no mud slinging campaign preceded the election of 
class officers there was rioting and slugging at the polls. Lacking the Australian 
ballot system the voting was accomplished under the supervision of a member 
of the faculty with the following results : J. T. Moran, president ; R. Alger, 
vice-president; F. M. Yager, secretary; D. Ff. Le Blanc, treasurer; H. L. Hefty, 
sergeant-at-arms. Shortly afterwards the Dentos staff, consisting of the follow- 
ing men, was elected : G. C. Tallant, class editor ; A. C. Ryan, assistant class 
editor; I. Helmey, assistant class editor; R. Pittman, business manager; R. Wil- 
liams, cartoonist. Members appointed to the student council were : G. Ouinn, 
W. Tate, P. Quinn. 

In passing we might mention that some bright and shining students have a 
"Little Fairy in their homes" ; others attempt to have a little "castile" in their 
lockers. 

As our first year set a high standard so our second year has maintained it. 
Our third year we hope will advance us to the unique position of the best class 
in the history of the college. G. T.

A WISDOM TOOTH 

Pat Quinn went out a-huntin' to find a lower third. 

That they are scarce as petticoats we've always heard. 

He came in grumbling that none could he find. 

Prof, says "Get out, Quinn, at hunting you are blind." 

So, worried and troubled, he started out the door. 

Vouched he'd get the bloomin' thing, and, oh, how he swore. 

Back he came at four that day, smile upon his face, 

Saying, "Dr. Watt, please; can't a 'Bi' take its place?" 

What Doctor said to Pat that day we've never heard, 

But he held the tooth o'er our heads and said, "Quinn, that's a third/ 



It's not the original cost but the upkeep — Pathology 



Moroncy in L. 0. — "Hey, O'Connell, close that window up there! 
O'Comicll — "Close it yourself! I'm no draftsman." 



Smith — "Say, Tate, do you know anything about Oquaka, 111.?" 
Tate — "I ought to. My uncle's the police force there." 



George Quinn is the original cake eater of our class — stole all of Ryan's 
while the latter was handcuffed with a tray in Dudley's looking for a place 
to light. 



They've never found out who threw the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's chowder, 
but Landis says he knows who socked the coffee pot in the mashed potatoes. 



There's a guy in our class who likes spuds so well that on Washington's 
birthday he bought a whole peck, took them to a friend's house and had the 
whole mess cooked. Not mentioning any names, but he hangs out with Peterson 
and is always singing "She's the Fairest of Ireland's Fair Daughters." 



Yager has just signed a contract with the Famous Players, to take effect 
June 1st. He will play the lead in "Why girls leave home." Oh, yes, he'll 
be with us again in the fall. It is rumored Henry Poupa may accompany him. 
Swoboda was with the same company last year.

LOVE 

To love is sweet 

But, oh, 'tis bitter 
To love a girl 

And then not git 'er. 

A feeling that is restless, 

A longing that is pain, 
A yearning for caresses, 
Hell — I'm in love again. 

My love is like a horse 

Hitched up to a cart 
It follows where the road goes 

Because it isn't smart. 

My love is like a cow 

Going down to drink. 
It only knows it's thirsty 

It doesn't stop to think. 

My love is like a sheep 

Jumping over a fence 
It goes the way of others 

Because it has no sense. 

Mary had a little lamb, 

I don't see how she did. 

Cause how could Mary have a lamb 
When she was but a kid ?

Lock, on the way down to the Psi Omega banquet during the period of proba- 
tion, asks Matson and O'Grady, "How long does this period of prohibition last?" 
A few days later, after serving probation orders, one evening he came home 
about 12 o'clock P. M. and sidestepped around the room for a while and finally 
landed on Matson, who was sound asleep. This wakes Matson out of his beloved

Brotherly Advice to Freshman 

(Faculty please do not read.) 

Inasmuch as we have been "through the mill," we deem it no more than 
proper that we should take this opportunity to advise and warn our fellow stu- 
dents who have not as yet experienced the exceeding joy of the Sophomore year. 
And so, if this little article helps you in any way to better equip yourselves to 
wage the supreme battle of the Second year, we have achieved our purpose. 
If not, read it and weep. 

The following "tips'' are held very dear to us ; in fact, they are the most 
cherished secrets of the Sophomore class, and it is only because we feel that it 
is our solemn duty to do so, we pass them on to a seemingly unappreciating 
class. And we further recommend that these secrets should be held sacred — 
regarded as an heirloom — to be handed down from one class to another — from 
generation to generation. 

Perhaps one of the most valuable bits of advice to the average Freshman 
is that on the various methods of getting by without previous preparation of 
the lesson. One of the best ways to get by this is that of "derailing" the 
Professor, more commonly spoken of as getting off the subject. Professors, 
like all other human beings, have their weaknesses. Remember that. The 
Anatomy professor, who has traveled quite extensively in his day, may be 
approached by a question in regard to how they dissect over in Germany. He 
will undoubtedly take particular delight in telling you — the untraveled — about 
the wonders of some German medical university. 

The best and one of the most common ways to avoid unfavorable notice in 
the Bacteriology class is to resort to the discussion of some strain of bacteria 
which you are studying. For example, start an argument as to whether the 
bacillus lactis aerogenes is responsible for the butter in butter milk or not. Then 
calmly sit by and wait for the clock to reach the even hour. 

Far be it from us to be personal, but we wish to advise (with all respect 
to him mentioned ) that the reader shall not detail Dr. Zoethout, as this derailing 
may prove very disastrous to the student. 

In Comparative Dental Anatomy, the method endorsed by us is to take up 
the wrong side of some theory ( for instance the Tritubercular Theory) and 
refused to be convinced that you are wrong. Sit up in your seat, lean over your 
desk, try to look as though you are thinking real hard but cannot see it. But 
be sure to go up to the professor after class and, after a few minutes of con- 
versation with him, allow the light to dawn. He then will get the impression 
that you had wrestled with just that part of the lesson at home the night 
before, and that after you could not decipher it, you had sought him for advice. 

In Pathology, the approved method is to open all of the windows in the 
amphitheatre between the lecture hours, just previous to the Pathology lecture. 
Then when the Professor comes in, complain of its being too cold. But be 
sure to close the windows before the Prof enters, because if he should find them 
open he may get wise and then the results will be far less desirable. "Follow 
directions carefully to obtain best results." 

But some Professors are immune to all forms of bluff and for these a 
special line of attack must be laid. Go up to the Prof before class (a good 
method is to speak to him in the Registrar's office) and tell him of your headache, 
toothache, important engagement, sickness, etc., and promise him that you will 
make up the work. This method is unusually successful in P. Chemistry, espe- 
cially when you have formulas to write, balance and hand in. Anyway, it is 
usually easy to make up after it had been done by the class.

All these are methods of getting by without previous preparation of lessons. 
Another still more important art for a Freshman to learn is that of ditching. 
If Webster had wanted to be at all sociable he might just as well have included 
this word in his dictionary; but since he saw fit not to, we will define it our- 
selves. DITCHING is that process by which we rid ourselves of certain unde- 
sirable subjects. 

The first and most advisable way is not to appear for class at all, but get 
some other student who has no class that hour to sit in your seat for you. In 
practicing this, be sure to tell the student specifically where your seat is sit- 
uated (don't only telLhim the number), so that if he should come a little late 
he can go direct to the seat and not cause any unnecessary notice. It may be 
wise to tie a green ribbon on the back of your seat so that the sitter (as they 
are commonly called) can find the seat without delay. This last part, however, 
is optional. 

Another method which has caused widespread joy is that of walking oul 
when the Professor turns around to write something on the board. This, how- 
ever, is not near as successful for those sitting in the two front rows (commonly 
known as Handshakers' Row) and therefore we wish to advise that anyone who 
ditches a class using the last described method, who sits in the aforementioned 
rows, will do so at his own risk and the author will not be responsible for any 
embarrassment which might arise from this source. Those sitting in the rear 
who use this method in getting out will be backed by the entire class — while 
they're going out. Before leaving, be sure that John has been in and taken 
the roll for without him all would be in vain. 

The third and last method of making a success out of a failure student is that 
of "talking it into a professor." This is more commonly spoken of as hand- 
shaking. But why go into this subject? We have a few perfect examples in 
the Sophomore class and these may be seen in the registrar's office after any 
lecture. And then to quote one of our bright Sophomore students, we'll say 
"Thus endeth the lesson."

Personality and Success 



Personality is a much talked of subject and one of vital interest to all of us 
inasmuch as some of the biggest men of our time consider it a pre-eminent factor 
of success. The technical side of the question I shall leave to psychologists, the 
personal side which enters into our daily professional and business relations I shall 
attempt to discuss. Because the human element is one of the most interesting 
parts of our work, I wish to express some ideas on how to develop and enrich 
the human relations of our daily life. We have a moral, spiritual and intellectual 
influence and an obligation to every man and woman who enters our life. This 
being so let us study our personalities that each one gets the utmost from the other. 

To me personality has two aspects — how a man looks and how he thinks — - 
reflected in his actions. The first is more superficial, yet it is important. Neatness 
in dress, good manners and a genial attitude go a long way toward a good 
impression. There are a few, notably careless in dress, who have become great 
men, but you will find the average successful man has paid attention to the 
niceties of dress and manner. Did you ever notice how much good a smile will 
do? Even in face of discouragement a smile heartens us, even, perhaps, turns 
dissatisfaction to satisfaction. 

Let us now consider the deeper things that constitute personality and char- 
acter. These are many and volumes could be written upon each, but with limited 
experience and knowledge, I can go into each but briefly. 

Co-operation is the life of trade. The same applies to successful personal 
relations which are controlled by our personalities. Therefore it becomes impera- 
tive that we understand something of personality and its relation to success. 
And who of us does not desire to be a success? By success I do not necessarily- 
mean rising to a high position or amassing a fortune, but I do mean filling your 
present position to the best of your ability, being a credit to your school, to your 
community and an inspiration to others. Man's intercourse with his fellows is 
based upon his understanding of character. When considering a new man the 
employer asks, "Is he competent?" The merchant asks, "Is he honest?" The 
teacher asks, "Is he earnest?" and so on, ad infinitum. Character alone play's 
an important part in business transactions. Morgan is said to have remarked 
that he preferred character to collateral and that he had actually loaned a million 
dollars on character alone. 

Enthusiasm is equivalent to success, provided a man thinks. 

Clara Tru Major says, "There is all the difference in the world between the 
man who goes to his office with the feeling that there is another day to drag 
through, another lot of work to be ploughed over and the man who feels that 
this is his opportunity to prove his value, to make a step up to the higher place 
in sight. The first man's eyes are dull, his step lagging, his whole deportment 
a weary protest against the monotony of life. The second man doesn't know that 
life is monotonous. He never has time to find out. To him each day is an 
opportunity for achievement, perhaps the guardian of the moment that shall work 
another milestone in his career." Which man shall we pattern after ? 

Let us consider those characteristics which produce a successful personalitv. 
Integrity is a prime requisite. Industry itself never gets anybody anywhere. 
Most animals are industrious, but they are not honest. They steal, they deceive, 
they refuse to respect the rights and property of others. Civilization dates from 
the time that people began to respect the rights and property of others. Industry 
and integrity are the basis of prosperity.

With an open mind and broad viewpoint much can be accomplished. If you 
can see the other fellow's point of view, if you can give consideration to his 1 
feelings, hopes, fears and abilities, you have gone far toward settling his difficulties. 
Keep an unbiased mind. Mr. Schwab said that men have failed because they did 
not see the importance of kindness and courtesy. Yet we all know that kindness 
to another gives one real pleasure and should be indulged in whenever possible. 

It has been said that without faith in one's self there can be no progress. 
Dr. Wishart says, "Keep on the sunny side of doubt and believe in life through 
hope and faith." To be self-confident one must be prepared, never quite studying, 
reading and thinking. Ask questions, learn by the other fellow's mistakes as 
well as his successes. Do not fear to plead ignorance in order to gain knowledge. 
Again I quote Mr. Schwab : "The man who fails to give fair service during 
the hours for which he is paid is dishonest. The man who is not willing to give 
more than this is foolish. Bare hands grip success better than kid gloves. The 
man who kicks about the hours and his income is a self-elected failure." Leslie 
Shaw says : "If you can't do what you like, like what you do." 

A personality that has a deep seated sincerity, clean in thought and action, 
tactful and pleasant, will command respect in all associations. 

Above all, to have a forceful personality one must have vision, initiative and 
decision to make good, backed by concentration which is the first essential of 
mental power. "There is no job too commonplace to express the individuality of 
an uncommon man." 

These, then, are a few characteristics necessary to a magnetic personality 
which brings success. Success does not necessarily mean money, but rather main- 
taining a standard to reach a- goal. Whether we arrive at that goal or not depends 
entirely upon ourselves. Psychologists tell us that every man is born with a 
certain amount of intellect which can be developed inimitably. Success hangs 
upon this development and upon a man's belief in himself. "Success comes in 
cans, failure in can'ts." From the Boston University News we get the following 
poem which expresses it so well. 

"If you think you're beaten, you are ; 

If you think you dare not, you don't; 
If you'd like to win but you think you can't, 
It's almost a cinch you won't. 

"If you think you'll lose, you're lost; 
For out in the world we find 
Success begins with a fellow's will ; 
It's all the state of mind. 

"If you think your outclassed, you are; 
You've got to think big to rise ; 
You've got to be sure of yourself before 
You can ever win a prize. 

"Life's battles don't always go 

To the stronger or faster man ; 
But soon or late the man who wins 
Is the one who thinks he can." 






"How did you get that black eye?" 

"Well, Clea's dad came into the front room the other evening when we were 
dancing and he is deaf and can't hear the Victrola."

Who could forget jolly Dr. Borland and his exacting colleague, Dr. Salazar? 
Our most recent instructor in anatomy, Dr. Yirka, always has a ready smile and 
perhaps excuses our boisterousness a little too much. 

Dr. Mueller and Dr. Watt are famous for making technique with their able 
assistants, Drs. Gilruth and Osterle. 

Our new instructor in Bacteriology and Pathology has presented two difficult 
subjects in such a manner that they are much easier and interesting. Dr. Epple 
is a great helper. 

Of Dr. Zoethout we may say that without his proficient methods and the effi-

of Physiology.

Dear Editor: 

I have often wondered since taking up the subject of Pathology about the 
so-called bonehead. Is this a condition of metaplasia or hypertroph? And then 
I have heard of people whose brains were elsewhere. Pray tell what condition 
could this be? An intelligent answer would be greatly appreciated. 

Respectfully, 

A. Sophomore. 

Friend Soph: 

I must reproach you. It is needless to ask for an intelligent answer. What 
else could we give you? 

Now, before we have a condition of boneheadedness we always speak of the 
patient as being dead from the neck up. This is a condition of necrosis. Fatty 
degeneration may follow this and then we have a fathead or albuminous degen- 
eration may ensue. The condition is then a swelled head. Of course if a bone- 
head is the result, then hyperplasia is usually the cause. As to brains being 
located elsewhere, I would suggest that this is caused by purely mechanical means 
such as trauma. Of course there are monstrosities with which I am not familiar. 

Knowingly your 
Ed.

Infections and Extractions 

Ever since old man Schneider had contracted rheumatism his daughter 
Loretta had suffere dequally as much as had her father. His was of an eccentric 
nature even when he was well, and the ailment which now afflicted him made 
him more than eccentric. He was unreasonable and irritable as well. Perhaps 
his most peculiar and unreasonable idiosyncrasy was a peculiar aversion to den- 
tists. Loretta had been receiving the attentions of a young dentist named 



215 



^KDfcntos 



2 3 




Dr. John Larry, and had been encouraged, if indeed she needed encouragement, 
by her father, until one eventful day he found out the young man's profession. 

Now Schneider's rheumatism had been traced to his teeth, but all the doctors 
and persuasion in the world could not make him consent to the extraction of 
the infected members. Many stormy arguments took place between father and 
daughter on the question, but all ended in the same way — father firm and daughter 
resigned to her fate. Let us listen to one of these typical storm sessions. 

"But, daddy, if you'd only have those teeth taken out, your rheumatism would 
go away and you would be well again." 

"I'm telling you for about the twenty-fifth time that I'll have none of those 
tooth mechanics work on me. Once about twenty years ago one got me, and 
never again. He put me in the chair and then pulled and gouged and dug and 
then finally said he had the tooth extracted, but I was a physical and mental 
wreck. Then to top the whole thing off he charged me two dollars for it. Said 
it was an impacted molar or something like that. No, sir, I'm not going to sub- 
ject myself to any of those fellows again, and that's final." 

"But, daddy, remember that dentistry has advanced since then and they can 
take those teeth out without hurting you at all. Why, Jack told me last night " 

"Oh, so you were out with that good-for-nothing tooth carpenter again last 
night. What did I tell you about going with him? If I ever catch you again 
I'll " 

"He's not a tooth carpenter. He's a dentist, and a good one, too. He said 
that he could give you gas and you wouldn't feel it at all. I knew you wouldn't 
take that and he said he could give you what he called a conductive, and you could 
see everything that was going on but couldn't feel it at all. Please let him pull 
them for you !" 

"For the last time I'm telling you that I'm not going to have any teeth pulled. 
Now don't bother me any more about it." 

This argument might have ended as many others before had, but a certain 
idea which Loretta had changed the final episode considerably. 

"All right, daddy, if you don't want to have those teeth pulled, of course you 
don't have to, but if you don't, Jack and I are going to be married tomorrow." 

Old man Schneider stormed, and his storm having expired without having any 
appreciable effect upon his daughter's firmness, ended in a pleading. The latter 
method of attack was no more successful than the first. Loretta knew she had 
an advantage and was wise enough to use it. "No, I mean what I say. Either 
you make arrangements to have those teeth pulled or I'll get married tomorrow. 
Perhaps I am unreasonable, but so have you been, and now I'm determined." 

That evening when Loretta and Dr. Larry took their evening stroll, the 
latter was informed of the fact that one of his patients for the following day was 
to be the man whom he desired more than all alse to call his father-in-law. At 
first he was quite overjoyed but upon further thought a feeling of fear took the 
place of joy. 

"If he'd just let me give him gas I wouldn't worry, but when those teeth 
have nice big abscesses on their roots as your father's have, they invariably hurt 
when they break loose, despite conductive locals or anything else. Well, I guess 
all I can do is to soak him up good with novocain. You pray for me." 

It was two weeks later when Loretta came into the office of her Dr. Jack. 

"Oh, Jack, I know I shouldn't come up here, but I just had to tell you that 
daddy is so much better, and he finally admitted that it scarcely hurt at all when 
you pulled those teeth. And he says he wants you to come to the house tonight 
and that you might ask him that question you have wanted to ask for so long."

In Appreciation of Dr. J. L. Kendall 

Success is measured by results. A statesman is successful to the extent to 
which his nation benefits under his rule; a college or a university achieves its 
highest possible worth when it graduates its students not only as masters of 
their craft, but as leaders, progressive and broadminded, trained to see and 
appreciate other phases of life than merely that in which they live and move. 
Likewise a teacher is successful not merely in his presentation and under- 
standing of his subject, but chiefly in the result which his work has upon the 
lives and activities of his students. An instructor may be an authority upon his 
subject, he may be able to present his facts in a manner by which the student 
may learn the facts and yet he may never be more than an instructor to his 
students. An encyclopedia may contain the facts essential to an education but 
it never will cause a person to become a better citizen. Few individuals have 
a more profound effect upon the future ideals and character of a student than 
has the true teacher. 

There are a number of men on the faculty of our institution whose influence 
for good will be borne to the four corners of the earth ; whose thoughts, 
messages and lives will react through their present students upon generations 
yet unborn. Menjwho, in addition to being concerned with our mastery of the 
profession, strive to further our happiness and usefullness to humanity by 
touching upon subjects which, while apart from the technique and practice of 
dentistry are yet vitally important to one's obligations as a responsible and 
intelligent citizen. 

Practically every class which has graduated from our school for several 
years, as well as each of the present classes, has received, through the sincere 
and fatherly interest of one of our professors above alluded to, lectures on 
the "moral life." These have not been in the nature of '"windy" harangues 
upon the "don'ts" of the moral question, but have been logical, sane and thor- 
oughly scientific discussions upon problems and issues which every person should 
understand. Discussions made valuable because of being drawn from the 
practical circumstances of life. The lectures, we are certain, have been of great 
worth and interest to all who received their benefits as well as explaining and 
giving valuable instructions upon many principles of which the majority of 
young men and women are left ignorant due to the incapability or unwillingness 
of parents to present the truths of life to children in their pure and true meaning. 
For the valuable instructions as well as the generous understanding of our 
needs and lack of information we express to Dr. John L. Kendall our gratitude 
for his splendid and broadminded work among the Sophomore class of this year. 

For the benefit of those who have not heard Dr. Kendall's lectures it may be 
proper to discuss briefly the subjects of his instructions. The lectures were 
given in connection with the study of Physiological Chemistry and occupied 
several lecture periods. 

Dr. Kendall introduced his subject by discussing the moral life of a boy, 
illustrating both the results of proper instruction and of the instruction which 
most boys receive through neglect of those who should teach them. From the 
period of boyhood to young manhood the lesson was continued, bringing out the 
moral problems, the factors which a young man is faced by, and pointing out 
vividly the causes which result in moral weakness and downfall among young men. 

From this phase to that of married life, explaining the responsibilities, the 
duties and the common errors of matrimony. In this phase Dr. Kendall spoke 
on the care of a wife, a husband's relation to his wife, and his duties toward 
her under the varying conditions of her life, expressing his ideas in fact of the 



^D^ntos 



923 



fundamentals toward producing a happy and successful home life and by the 
establishment of a happy and successful home, building deep the foundations 
of national and social security. 

He spoke further of the obligations and duties of parenthood, discussing 
our obligations to our offspring and society. The life of the young girl and 
the young woman was also discussed and emphasis laid upon the duties of a 
young man to his young lady friend. 

These lectures have been a few of several which Dr. Kendall has given to the 
present Sophomore class. In the latter part of our Freshman year he spoke 
on a theme which will remain in the memory of his students for a long time. 
It was a semi-philosophical discussion of man and the universe and the thoughts 
which were set forth were all valuable for consideration and were greatly 
appreciated. 

The future of the graduates of our school, and of other schools too, takes 
on a new promise for good when we have such men as Dr. Kendall and others 
who lend their influence to the broadening of our viewpoint. The future graduate 
who goes into the world from his school days will no doubt view life from a 
bigger and broader point of view and will thus be better qualified as a progressive 
citizen of the community in which he dwells. The man who leaves our institu- 
tion will go, not to pull teeth and fill cavities alone, but as an individual, broadened 
and strengthened to meet life's responsibilities, this strength due in a great 
part to the influence for good wielded by those real benefactors to our student body. 



SEEX IN A SOPH'S PHYSIOLOGY 
In my greed for knowledge I bought this book 
And as nightly through its pages I look 
I ofttimes think of the days of old 
When men spurned knowledge — sought for gold. 
How silly they of the olden school, 
Were I a rough fellow, would say : "Thou fool." 
I've never cared for money — don't want a cent, 
It's upon dentistry all my efforts are bent, 
But when I get out — Um! — I'll yell with glee 
To get back the sheckels Frame got from me." 



FROM A HUNGRY SOPH 
I often long for a good square meal, 
Roast beef an' spuds with quarter inch peel, 
But here in the city where most seem bent 
An' you can buy limburger without a scent. 
You'll find the guy with the scowl on his face 
Say, "I'm sick of eatin' in that ole place." 
O gimme the ole kitchen back on the farm 
An' that swell rich cream, right from the barn, 
Where they gather the eggs fresh from the coop 
'N never hear anything like, "Rusta-beef and zupp. 



Jim Moran gets credit for being the first to make kindling wood of Dudley's

While she squirmed and wriggled from head to toe ; 

Then he put in the chip blower and blew out the dirt. 
"Does it hurt?" he asked, as he pressed with a prong. 

"Ouch!" she wailed. "You've got your crust." 
"Sorry, Miss, but it has gone too long ; 

Your molar is rotten, so extract we must."

Class History 

|0 RECOUNT the history of a class like that of 1926 — if there 
be another such — and to do justice to it would require the power 
of an experienced historian. It is evident then that with our 
limitation of space and experience as an historian, only the major 
events can be touched upon. 

On the evening of October 3, 1922, the entire student body 
met in the large auditorium to hear the words of wisdom and 
advice propounded by Drs. Brophy, Johnson and others. Although the class of 
1926 was there that evening, it was not until the morning of October 4 that 
we met as a class, nearly one hundred and seventy strong, and probably one of 
the largest classes that ever entered the institution. There were men from many 
states and nations, but with one purpose — the study of Dentistry. 

We were soon ushered into the mysteries of Biology, Chemistry and Anat- 
omy. We discovered, to our astonishment, that Chemistry, as taught by Dr. 
Kendall, was interesting; that Dr. Suddarth's tapeworms and fever-bearing mos- 
quitoes were mere trifles, and that Dr. Borland's knowledge of anatomy would 
make Gray look like a "piker." 

Section I was introduced to a plaster-eating course, and Section II was told 
to make instruments and teeth. Some of the specimens produced in those early 
days would have been splendid companions for the relics dug out of old King 
Tut's tomb. 

The next big event in our career came when the class decided it needed 
some officers. A "peppy" election was held and when the smoke had cleared 
away, the following had been elected: R. W. McNulty, President; H. S. Mac 
Withey, Vice-President ; A. R. Hanson, Secretary; H. F. Kidd, Treasurer; and 
H. L. Aronson, Sergeant-at-Arms. An election without a celebration would 
surely be a dry affair. So it was decided to invade the 'down-town district. 
With flags and tin pans we advanced upon the Loop. After half a dozen 
police protests. We arrived at the Tribune Building, where our pictures were 
snapped, together with Sidney Smith, originator of "Andy Gump." 

There was another incident paramount in our history. We refer to the 
annihilation of the Sophomores. That experienced and august body of men 
advanced upon, what they deemed, a mere horde of unsophisticated yearlings. 
Many a collar parted from its collar button in response to the command of 
"collars off." However, it was a significant fact that the parted ones were more 
plentiful among the Sophomore Class. We established in those few minutes of 
battle a prestige that will follow us throughout our life as a class. 

At the conclusion of the first year of the class history the Freshman staff 
presents this section of the book for your perusal and, we hope, enjoyment. 
We realize our shortcomings, but hope we have given you something that now 
and in later years will be a source of pleasure and contentment. Our one 
request is that you be charitable in your criticism of the work. We have tried 
to gather together the things that would please you and leave out the things 
that would irritate you. Friendships have been made during this year that 
time will not sever. This book may help to foster and cement these friend- 
ships. If it does we shall feel repaid and know that our efforts were not futile. 

Editor.

norman h. davidson — Hawley, Minn, dave lives with several seniors and so has 

Pthe edge on most of us. We wonder whether he is in love or whether his 
thoughts arc on dentistry entirely. 
chauncey w. de roque — Chicago. A Frenchman of course, chaunccy has taken the 
first steps to make himself famous. He has submitted the dc roquc defi- 
nition of Histology to the freshman class. Keep up the good work, French v. 
michael de rose — Genoa, Wis. de rose has mastered the art of hair cutting, but 
he claims that dentistry is the only profession. 

layton m. dochterman — Chicago. t'ft. Galligher says that Doc. is the man with 
a thousand girls, but has never been seen with one. John our curator tried 
to read Doc's name one day but gave it up, saying that he never could read 
Greek. 

bill]', donaldson — Cuba, 111. 1'ii. Nickname, "Kid Edison." Did you ever 
hear of Cuba, 111.? I never did. bill says it's there, though, because he 
remembers that the trains whistle when they go through, bill rooms on the 
west side but it is a well known fact that he would rather live in Lombard, 
111. No, girls don't bother bill. 

orville j. dvorak — Downer's Grove or thereabouts. Zip. dvorak travels back and 
forth, every day from the grove. We understand that during the rainy 
season the residents use their rowboats to get to the station. This explains 
why dvorak carries fish hooks in his pockets. 

harry h. epstein — Chicago, harry's motto is "0, I learned that in high school." 
eppy is right there though — the only time he failed us was the day the 
distortionist lectured to us during anatomy hour. 

f airman w. jahrney — Chicago and sometimes from Dixon, 111. A2CA. fahrney 
is more or less a serious-minded chap in studying dentistry and also carry- 
ing out his pledgeship. Say, fahrney, how about a few pencils? 

theodore finkelstein — Chicago. AZT. fink has been around the town quite a bit 
and you can't fool him. Until you get to know him you would think that 
he was president of the Ragans. 

leo. r. finley — Mason City, Iowa. *I'ii. leo, we are told, owns a team of pure 
white mules which are said to be the best team in his home county. He has 
driven mules so long that his disposition is mulie at times. From the last 
reports from leo's friends the mules are doing fine and are just rarin' to feel 
leo's pull on the reins. 

wayne I. fisher — Fairview, 111. fisher started out with a full outfit of tools in pros- 
thetics but ended the course with an almost empty box. Who were your 
friends, wayne? 

frank I. floyd — Chicago. From all indications — looks, actions, etc., frank must be 
a married man. We realize how it is old man, but you know the first 
hundred years . 

maurice forkosh — Chicago. AZT. This embryo dentist is interested in chemistry 
but is an expert at radio. We think he said he had a crystal set and two 
ear phones, or something like that. 

william f.franta — Cicero. Evidently franta, our English teacher delights in seeing 
you very uncomfortable. Why make you come down from your high perch 
in the amphitheater and then not give you a hearing' That's tough on 
you bill. 

myer freedman — Steubenville, Ohio. AZT. We had a little trouble in getting 
the name of mver's home town correctlv. A few of his fraternitv brothers

insisted that it was Stupidville. Evidently myer has been an athlete at 
one time for he often wears his black and red sweat jersey tinder his coat. 

kingsley m. fuerstenau — Milwaukee or Chicago, fuerstie says he is not particular 
about his home town because his home is wherever he hangs his hat. The 
women folks do not bother feurstenau since his announcement saying he 
intended to organize the Bachelor Dentist's Club. 

earl galligher — Chicago. Tii. Swede is a ladies' man. Some of the fellows 
claim that he carries a stick to keep the girls away. Is that possibe Swede ? 

Johnnie m. gecewicz — Chicago. Johnnie talks a great deal about his girl friend, etc., 
etc. It's too bad Johnnie that Dentistry isn't a one year course any more. 
Four years is a long time. 

simon e. gimbel — -Java, S. Dakota. XV*. This town must be another curfew 
town or do the people object to being awakened every night at nine ? simon 
never thinks of a curfew now. At least that is what a few of the nurses of a 
neighboring hospital tell us. 

barney h. goldstein — Whiting, Ind. barney claims that those few cold days this 
winter when he was absent from school that he was building a shelter for 
Spark Plug, barney's height of ambition is to be able some day to pound 
a gold foil in Spark Plug's upper right first molar. 

elmer f. grabow — Burlington, Wis. A member of the faculty and also a member of 
the freshman class. Technical drawing is grabow's line. • He has other 
lines though — you know you just have to have a good line to handle a class 
of freshmen. 

leonard j. greenwald — New York City. AZF. "New York" was elected class 
cheer leader, but since that time he has settled down and we very seldom 
hear much from him. He must be thinking about his long walk back home 
after the end of the term. He believes in seeing the country. 

kenneth h. haines — Dexter, Maine, kenneth was a shark in prosthetics and kept 
right up at the head of the class, but when dissection came along kenneth 
must have got cold feet or was a bit superstitious. He didn't just see why 
you had to cut the cadaver. 

lester in. hallen — Marinette, Wis. Wii. hallen says that Chicago weather is ! 

Well anyway next year he will be going south for the winter he claims. 
Why leave us before the annual collar day. We were banking on you 
lester. 

liilery e. hanna — Hot Springs, Ark. ASA. when hanna first arrived it was rather 
hard for the northern fellows to understand his lingo. He's coming around 
fast and we just know his southern friends will hardly recognize the same 
boy on his return home. 

carl e . Hansen — Manistique, Mich. AHA. carl is one of the reasons why section 
one has it all over section two. carl had all A's on his semester report. Do 
you blame him for celebrating? We just wish that we could celebrate a 
little. 

arthur r. hanson — Bristol, S. Dakota, art is our class secretary and is a transpor- 
tationist too. art claims that he wants to be a bachelor but if the women 
folk don't stop bothering him he will have to join the married men in order 
to obtain a little peace. 

charles w. hading. 1'ii. charley was originally a member of the Class of 1925,

millard r. harmon — Des Moines, Iowa. XT*, harmon is the Sheik of the

We are almost afraid that the home folks will not recognize you at all. We 
know that they wouldn't have known you if they could have seen you with

harold h. liayes — Chicago. TO. Assistant Editor of Freshman section of the 
Dentos. Doctor Kendall claims that haves came from a brainy lot of 
ancestors, but haves declares that something must have happened for they 
forgot him entirely. 

eugene m. hillyer — Oak Park, 111. Deacon hillyer is a regular fellow with the girls. 
They just rave over the way he parts his hair in the center. Be careful 
Deacon you can't study Dentistry and women at the same time. 

warren p. hitz — Chicago, hitz is our mascot and some mascot he is too. Makes 
more rumpus in a day than twenty men. .Some of the fellows maintain 
that hitz wears stockings instead of socks with his long trousers. How

earl g. huwatscliek — Manitowoc, Wis. With doctor huwatschek's knowledge

My First Toothache 

Memories of a Wanderer 
By Sol. S. Levadi 

It occurred, when I, driven by my own shadow, set out into the wide world 
to find — myself. My pathways were various, many-colored, joyous, yet often, 
very often, veiled in a sweet heavy melancholy wherein an interplay of weary 
doubts, moments of hopeless questionings broke forth, seeking explanations of 
the passing days which came from unknown sources only to sink back in 
shadows. 

Thus, destiny brought me far away to a God and man-forsaken town in 
indolent Anatolia. The town appeared more like a big, neglected village, proud 
of its age, poverty and negligence ; but really had nothing to boast of or to draw 
one's attention to, being like the other towns of that forsaken corner of the 
world. Like its sister towns it was wrapped in a deep melancholy which reigns 
unhampered over all of Anatolia. Like her neighboring towns, it had a deep 
blue, meditating sky, and below — fields covered with wild weeds. Among the 
tall ruined clay houses stretched the crooked filthy little streets. Here and there 
could be seen impoverished shops selling everything and possessing nothing. 

In the middle of the market place stood the casino, an old grayish wooden 
building about which there always sat drowsy-eyed Effendies, and middle class 
Turks, drinking black coffee, smoking nargilas, playing tavle ( a Turkish game ) 
and dominoes, weaving masbaras ; while others simply chatted about the dreams 
of yesterdays. 

Facing the casino was the mosque from whose narrow cylindrical tower, five 
times a day, would come the thrilling voice of the Muezzin, calling the people 
to Allah's service. 

The hands of the mosque's clock moved, but the life of Anatolia was motion- 
less and changeless ; nothing new accomplished, nothing new heard. In the 
monotony of today one could read the story of yesterday, and know what the 
morrow would be. So it began, so it is, so it would be unto the end, unless 
some unforeseen circumstance should occur to break the monotony. 

During the first days of my arrival I spent my time in looking over the 
casino, the market place. The rivulet, the woods, the blue-green surroundings 
were sufficient to hold my interest. But this did not hold my attention long; 
soon everything began to bore me, everything became monotonous. The hours 
of the day seemed to be endless, and the hands of my watch seemed always to 
be going backwards. I had no one to write to and if by chance I got hold of 
an address of some old forgotten friend, I had nothing to write about. I did 
not know what to do with myself, and I do not know what this state of mind 
would have led me to had I not met at that time with my first toothache. 

At first it started very modestly and then passed away for a while. At first 
it assumed the air of a newcomer, but soon made itself more at home. How- 
ever, it was still bearable. To tell the truth I was contented that it gave me 
something to think about, and made me feel that I was still alive. 

At night, however, I felt that my head was at a great distance from my 
body. It seemed as if the bed were turning over and the pillow flying after the 
stars, I pursuing both. The next morning I was not to be recognized. I was 
no longer the master of one-half of my mouth. The keeper of the house, hav- 
ing noticed my plight, tied my face with a pillow and a wooden stocking; stuffed 
my ears with cotton and my mouth with tobacco leaves which burned my 
tongue. My kind housekeeper tried every remedy handed down to him from

his great-grandfathers, but it was all in vain. There was no doctor or dentist 
m the town. Alter three sleepless nights 1 was persuaded to go to Hadji 
Mustaffa. 

Hadji Mustaffa was past fifty, a short bony little man with small black 
eyes, a scattered gray beard, shaven from the chin to the neck. The heavy 
white turban resting on his bald head made his face appear still longer and 
paler. He was considered one of the most learned scholars, also there was 
gossip in the town that he was by no means poor. The people from the country 
around would come to him to be cured of all kinds of diseases. He was also 
a hair-clipper; he taught the children the Koran and how to chant their prayers. 
In addition to all this he was skilled in making a special kind of letters for holy 
inscriptions, and for pedigree, to which add his trade in hashish (opium). 

As I came into his chamber Hadji Mustaffa had previously been sitting with 
his legs crossed under him, serving as a cushion. He was surrounded bv a 
number of young Turks singing beautiful hymns from the Koran. Hadji 
Mustaffa rose, kissed his own hand, and put it on his forehead, and inquired 
about my health, my wife's health, my children, my camels and donkeys, as if we 
had been old acquaintances. According to the custom. I inquired the same of 
him, and as usual received the same answer. His steady gaze measured me from 
head to foot, paying special attention to my hair and looking deep into my 
eyes seeking something to converse about. I became impatient with the lengthy 
greetings and began to frown. 

"What," said he, "sick?" 

"A tooth," I replied. 

"That's a trifle, we'll soon take it out." 

"Perhaps you could stop the pain first," I attempted to suggest. 

"Why?" he questioned. "When a tooth hurts it is bad," he began to explain 
in a serious manner as if I did not know that before. "It's necessary," he 
continued, "to get rid of it as soon as possible." "But," I muttered nervously — 
"What! I suppose you believe in the modern doctors, those wizards," he stormed 
at me not without vexation. "Xonsense!" "You're a European. I suppose. 
What? From what part?" 

Meanwhile he gave me a pillow to lean on and sat down on the carpet, 
desirous to hear me talk. I at first attempted to get out of this unpleasantness 
but seeing there was no escape I began to narrate of my last event — the tooth- 
ache. He interrupted me, saying that we will talk about that later. What he 
was interested in was to know "how they live there," and about "those cities." 

The servant now brought black coffee and a nargila which meant that I was 
obliged to be sociable. Thus I began to tell Hadji Mustffa about everything 
that my sick imagination could bring forward. I told him many fictitious 
stories about Parisian beauties, bewitched princesses, about mermaids, and all 
ab©ut miracles and witchcraft. Hadji Mustaffa was very much pleased with 
my chattering and moved nearer and nearer to me. My toothache was mean- 
while working- havoc on me and I felt that each moment was like a year of 
unbearable affliction. 

When I got through Hadji Mustaffa began to tell me about his first pilgrim- 
age to Mecca and there seemed no end to his book of fables. Again coffee and 
nargila was served. But I felt that I could not endure the pain any longer, so 
I leaned my swollen cheek against the cold wall, thinking that that would 
be a hint for Hadji Mustaffa to do something for me. He did not take the 
hint. He continued to babble, reinforcing his speech with ridiculous gestures

and staring of the eyes. My patience now came to an end. I approached "my 
deliverer" and I began to kiss his hand. 

"For the sake of Allah, for the sake of the Prophet." I begged him with 
tears in my eyes, "have pity, it is already three nights I did not sleep." 

Hadji Mustaffa wanted to say something, but here the voice of the Muezzin 
from the tower of the mosque interrupted calling for the afternoon service. 
Hadji Mustaffa jumped up and I was overjoyed, thinking that he was going 
to relieve my pain, fie beckoned me to accompany him to the services. I feared 
to tell him I was not a son of a Mohammedan, and I could see no way out of 
this nonsense. I followed him and attempted to imitate him in washing for 
the service. 

"Not at all like a God-fearing Mussulman," Hadji remarked. "I have not 
attended services for a long time," I attempted confusedly to excuse myself. 
"One is full of sins, may God only have mercy." 

In the mosque I stood not far from my deliverer, but not too near, as I 
wanted to observe his actions. I tried to imitate every motion he made ; I bowed, 
I knelt, I stared with my eyes, and I moved my lips as if praying. From time 
to time I stealthily observed the other worshippers to see whether they did not 
recognize my ignorance. At the slightest suspicion of being noticed I put my 
hand under my swollen cheek ; so I got away with it quite peacefully. 

On the way back from the mosque I felt that my strength was exhausted. 
Hadji Mustaffa noticed that on my countenance and informed me of the happy 
tidings that help is near. He led me to the same room where we had been pre- 
viously, while he himself made the preparations for the "operation." I began 
to look around, reading the holy inscriptions on the walls. I gazed about me 
for a sign of an instrument but in vain. While thus waiting I overheard a 
conversation between Hadji Mustaffa and his son, Ali, who pulled an old 
horse along after him, which he tied to the big wheel of the waterwell near 
the window. I saw Ali hold the rope, tying one end to the wheel, the other to 
the window. "Well," said Hadji Mustaffa, putting on the table a hot glassful 
of honey and water and taking off his coat. "Come here, stand here, and hold 
yourself onto the gratings. One, two, three, and with the help of the Prophet 
we will be through." 

"Are your instruments clean," I asked innocently. 

"What kind of instruments ? We don't believe in such nonsense. Now 
open your mouth !" 

I realized that I had been deceived, but it was too late to withdraw, and 
there was no other alternative. So I surrendered myself to the sick-eyed Hadji. 

Hadji Mustaffa put me near the window. He took from his vest pocket 
an old silk thread and soon I felt his awkward fingers working under my 
swollen cheek. He tied the thread to the end of the rope near the window. 

As Hadji had commanded, I held onto the window gratings tightly. He 
signaled to Ali to be ready with the whip and horse. "Hold yourself tensely," 
lie reiterated. "Bism Allah el rahinan el rahim — read)-, go!" 

There was the sound of the flogging of the whip ; I was pulled forcibly 
towards the window ; I felt my knees giving way ; before my eyes I saw blue, 
yellow and soon — black. It seemed to me that I was raised up into the air. 



When I regained consciousness my mouth was full of blood, my face and 
clothing were wet. I could not think any more of my toothache. 

The next day when I looked in the mirror 1 found two teeth in my mouth 
missing, hut neither of them was the tooth I was so anxious to get rid of.

Youth: What Are You Going to Do With Itf 

Somewhere I have read a legend which declared that one of the smaller 
gods created the material universe and that common angels peopled the earth 
with living creatures, but all the deities united their efforts in producing the most 
wonderful and dangerous gift — the youth of man. If I could only impress 
upon you what a wondrous gift this youth of ours is, I would feel like my task 
was completed. In a Dakota town a few years ago a street was torn away and 
the dirt was found to contain gold. They had been walking a golden street — 
actually realizing their dreams of heaven without knowing it. The next few 
years is worth a gold mine to we dental students. Doubt it if you like and live 
and die an oyster. I suppose you know the peculiarities of an oyster. He has 
just a few brains, and they are situated in his stomach. It is a great wonder 
that nature does not put shells on some people and put their brains where their 
work is done. 

Next to character education is a man's greatest asset, and the better, broader, 
and more practical he can make his education, that much surer will he escape 
the perils that may beset him in any walk of life. I am a firm believer in a good, 
liberal education and a trained intellect. Above all things, a man while in his 
youth should never be lazy for — "to the lazy every petty cross that impedes 
his path is Fate and Fate is as much cursed by the indolent, as Luck is criticized 
by the envious." We all know that it is only natural for a man to be active 
in his youth ; therefore his activities must be spent correctly or incorrectly. 
Beware of a moonlight stroll, and a meaningless hour of flirtation. Beware of 
that infinite nonsense that a sudden fancy will ripen into lasting love ! It may ; 
wait till it does. A rocket does not ripen into daylight. What kind of a condi- 
tion does a man of twenty-five years find himself in if he has mis-spent his 
youth! These are the circumstances he finds himself suspended in, his workshop 
is chosen, he toils day after day, never learning or advancing farther; he has 
chosen his life's companion, therefore his social life comes to an end due to 
lack of funds, and long working hours. He is destined and doomed to live in 
the city or community he is located in, never knowing or seeing any of the 
outer world. He sees his neighbor prosperous and reaping the harvests of a 
correctly spent youth, and he becomes discouraged, dissatisfied, and leads a 
miserable existence. Suppose at the age of thirty he is thrown out of his $800 
job? What can he do? Can he trust? No. He can trust for the glories of 
the next world but the glories of this world must be bought and paid for by the 
ready cash of skill and brains. I believe in success by my own ability and have 
no hopes of ever getting it in any other way. Control a rebellious tongue, for 
one rebellious word at the opportune time may ruin our future. It has been 
said that the average man is a lunk head. The average voter cannot differentiate 
between the McKinley bill and Buffalo Bill ; the average doctor cannot explain 
the difference between the Sierra Nevada and the cerebri. Don't be an average 
man, be peculiar and know something. Do things Herculean. 

"Do not waste the spring of youth in idle dalliance, but plant rich seeds to 
blossom in your manhood and bear fruit when vou are old." — Ezra K. Longnecker. 



Gimbcl — "How can you tell the difference between Dr. Hambleton and his 

students ?" 

Hulctt — "Well, I would hate to express my opinion. But what is it?"

asleep, the other one would be Dr. Hambleton."

Letter of a Freshman of the Superior Type to His Maw 

in Honeysuckle, Utah 

Feb. 1, 1923. 
23 Eazy Street, 
Chicago, Illinois. 
My dear Mother — 

Your letter received about a week ago and you don't know how glad I was 
to get it! Since I arrived in Chicago after the Christmas holidays I have been 
worked to death. The moment I get out of school in the afternoon I go right 
home. From that moment until 1 :00 A. M. I am wrapped up in my studies. 
Many times I forget to eat my supper. 

My favorite studies are Technical Drawing and Osteology. You don't know 
how I love to draw Bunsen Burners, skulls and other parts of the human anat- 
omy. You know I am privileged to draw these not only for Technical Drawing 
but, what's better, for Osteology class. Besides these two major subjects, on 
which I spend most of my time, there are other minor subjects such as Dissec- 
tion, Chemistry and Histology that require very little study. Of these three, 
Dissection is probably the easiest and requires the least time. You can readily 
understand that it wouldn't take very many minutes to learn a lesson that only 
consists of the origin and insertion of fifteen muscles, their nerve and artery 
supplies. Histology and Chemistry are a dead cinch. I don't waste any time 
talking in the Chemistry and Histology Laboratories and as a result I never 
have any outside work to do in these subjects. 

I consider myself very clever in Prosthetics. I never talk or ask the professor 
any questions about my work. I just go ahead and do it, using my own brain. 
Yes. it does take a good brain to do this, mother, but you know I am your son. 

It is 1 :30 A. M. now but I am not going to bed yet. I have purchased one 
of the Sophomore Charts in Dissection. Dr. Vogt gave us such a small lesson 
that I really must do some additional work out of justice to myself. Therefore 
I am going to study Lesson 1, 2 and 3 on the Sophomore Chart. If I know all 
the Sophomore work next year at the beginning of the course, they will probably 
let me take extra work so that I can be a prosector in my Junior year. 

Just one more thing before I close. I want you to keep this to yourself 
for I don't want the people in Honeysuckle. LJtah, to think I am blowing 
about myself, because I'm not. In his own mind, I think that Dr. Hambleton 
thinks I have great possibilities as a dentist, for I was the only one today that 
removed a plaster of Paris impression from my mouth without breaking it. Now, 
please don't let this get around town because I do hate notoriety. Loads of love 
to you and best regards to the hired girl. 

Your loving son, 

Benjamin. 

P. S. Don't send me that extra $25 you spoke about. I really don't need 
it and I niisrht lose it. Ben. 



A STIFF SCENT 
I entered the dissecting room. 
Wow ! What a smell ! 
A piece of liver hit my eye.

Looking Ahead 



Clippings from the 1935 Chicago College of Dental Surgery Alumni Monthly 

Dr. Kenneth Haines has invented a new method of taking impressions with- 
out one particle of plaster touching the patient's mouth. Dr. Haines will lecture 
on his new invention November 5 before the National Association of Dentists 
of which Dr. Sam Schwartz is president. 

There will be a joint lecture by Drs. Robert and Willie McXulty before the 
Qualitative Analysis Club of Stickem. Utah. The subject of the lecture will 
be "How One Can Be Misled in One's Search for Aluminum." 

Dr. Donald Lock has returned from a few days rest, spent at his father's 
potatoe chip farm near Beatrice, Nebraska. 

Dr. Mundt of the class of 1928 has resigned his position as head of the 
Osteology department of the college and in the future will be found rolling the 
bones at Centerville, Oklahoma. 

It is reported in unofficial circles that Dr. J. Vincent Lynott is the proud 
father of twins born October 28. It will be remembered that Dr. Lynott 
married the Chicago girl at whose home he was accustomed to bone his Sunday 
night dinners. 

Sherrill, who started out with the class of 1926, has decided to stick to the 
barber business a couple of more years before entering upon his sophomore year. 

Dr. Nelson will fill the vacancy caused by the departure of Dr. John O'Grady, 
head of the Operative Technic Department, who has been granted a permanent 
leave of absence. 

Drs. John La Febvre and Elmer Schuessler are conducting their usual Satur- 
day night dancing classes in the South Side Auditorium. 

Dr. Lester Ottesen of Utah has discovered a new chemical which he has 
decided to call "per." 

Drs. Epstein and Goldstein, who have been carrying on extensive investiga- 
tions as to the exact location of the soul, have left Cicero for a few days of 
deserved rest from their arduous duties. 

Dr. Solomon Levadi, who until recently has been playing the role of Romeo 
along with Mary Garden as Juliet, has abandoned the stage and will establish 
a practice near Florence. It will be remembered that Dr. Levadi spent the 
majority of his younger days near Florence. 

Dr. John Ryll, who until November 15 was soloist at Dreamland, will now 
devote his entire time to his practice. 

Dr. Elmer Grabow has been elected Honorary President of the Little Moth- 
ers' Club of Beaut, Montana. 

That fillings are the coming things is the report of Dr. Wayne Fisher of 
Tapakeg, Idaho. The doctor says to use pint bottles, associate vourself with a 
respectable bootlegger and watch the dough roll in. 

Rudolph Sherry, ex 1926. is appearing this week at the State-Lake in his 
finest of all presentations, "The Hairy Ape." 

Dr. Greenwald, through the aid of numerous political bodies, has been 
appointed head dentist of Tammany Hall, N. Y. 

Dr. Huwatschek recently died of heart failure when his second patient sud- 
denly walked into his office. 

Word comes from Fullerbull, Wisconsin, that Dr. Hitz has patented an 
arrangement that will allow him to stand on the patient's chest while extracting. 
A spring attached to the ceiling keeps the doctor from falling backwards when 
the tooth emerges from its seclusion. 



250 



1923 




Drs. Bonk and Bonebrake have dissolved partnership. Ur. Bonebrake says 
that his partner was bonk and Dr. Bonk says lhat he will brake bones in his 
partner's neck. 

From all that can be learned Dr. Fahrney's patients think him a fair man 
in name but not with the women. Dr. Fahrney's wiles have become so notice- 
able that the town council now requires all women to be in the house at 9 o'clock 
when the curfew blows. 

Will other members of the 1926 class please write and tell us what you 
are doing. Dr. MacWithey is now playing golf at Hot Springs, attempting to 
reduce his 245 lbs. After the first of May he will be at his office in La Grange. 
Contributions can be sent directlv to him at his office. 



Dr. Kendall — '"The students were so entranced this morning that they re- 
mained in my lecture room all through the lunch hour." 
Dr. Suddarth — "Why didn't you wake them up?" 













Scene — College basement. 

Time — Period after dissecting of Section II and before Section I. 

Cast — Two Freshmen, each representing the above sections. 

Freshman, Section II — "I'm glad I'm through with dissecting. It was dis- 
couraging and the smell was awful. Why, after I got through all my clothes 
smelled, even my underwear." To make the scene more impressive he took oft 
his coat, rolled up his shirt and said "smell." 

Freshman, Section I — "That's not so bad for five weeks." 



We wonder if the guy who paints those Holeproof Hosierv advertisements 
from life gets paid besides.

THE CADAVER 



He lies there on that glassy slab, 

His body cold and still. 
His eyes no longer luster have, 

The features send a chill. 
One limb perhaps is severed. 

Perhaps an arm is gone. 
No movement from that rigid 

For all is cold and still. 



form, 



Does not a lump come in your throat? 

Do not you heave a sigh ? 
For in that ward across the street 

No friend did see him die. 
He suffered long, he anguished much, 

His form still shows the pain. 
Yet in that ward across the street 

No man did know his name. 

Did not he have a mother? 

Did not he share her love? 
Did not she gather him in her arms 

And sing him songs of love? 
Could not a loving mother 

Have put the tot to bed. 
And prayed there by that sleeping babe 

The blessings on his head? 

Perhaps she sits alone tonight. 

Her heart with anguish torn. 
For fifteen years or more have passed 

Since that loved son's been home. 
Her eyes have lost their luster 

Her hair has turned quite gray, 
But she never ceases praying 

For the bov who went away. 


















-Harold Mac JVithey. 



'I'd walk a mile for a camel," said the Arab, lost on the desert. 






A certain collegiate young man entered a haberdashery and asked to be 
shown a high class hat. A chapeau was brought to him and after carefully 
inspecting it he asked the price. 

"Twenty-two dollars," was the reply. 

He again turned his attention to the hat, turning it over and over in his hands. 

"What's the matter?" asked the dealer. 

"I'm looking for the holes," answered the Kollegiate Kiddy. 

"The holes! What holes?" 

"Why, the holes for the jackass that would buy this to put his ears through."

TO MOTHER 

When you're in trouble and the world's against you, 

When you are broke and there's no work to do. 
Your friends are gone and you're forgotten, 

Your spirit's broken, you are blue, 
When all your clothes are old and ragged. 

You're quite alone it seems to you, 
Your thoughts will somehow turn to mother, 

Your oldest friend, steadfast and true. 
Her arms to you are always open. 

Be your apparel old or new, 
For a mother's love is nowhere equalled. 

And gladly would she die for you. 
And so, my boy, try to remember, 

As in this world you plan and do. 
To make your life both clean and honest, 

For mother's ever watching you. 

— Geo. G. Pastels. 



Le Febvre (stewed) — "Waiter, bring me shome turtle shoup and — hic-

Poupart Ligament and how you laughed? 

What a helava thing your first chisel looked like? 

That you thought Grabow was a Dr. and you called him and Dr. Kendall 
that title in the same breath ?

dentist and see if he didn't have some moth-eaten bones up in the attic? 

You thought Dr. Logan had engaged Rudolph Valentino to teach you English?

How last October you looked askance at the chemist who could say H 2 
without batting an eye lash ? 

That the married men were the ones that were always waving their paddies 
at the Cook County nurses? 

That one married man in particular had this as his pastime ? ( He was dark, 
wore nose glasses, had black hair, and the first letter of his last name stood 
for the place toward which he was headed. ) 

How you believed Dr. Borland the first time he told you you had the best 
set of cadavers that had been in the school for thirty years ? 

That you were ashamed when Lock fell asleep in Prosthetics Lab? 

That vou were mortified to death when Schneider had to be awakened bv 
Ryll ? 

What an unnecessary feeling you had when Dr. Kendall said "spread out?" 

You wondered what Dr. Grabow would have you draw when all the skulls 
and Bunsen Burners were used up ? 

The day Lynott thought Dr. Oesterle was a Sophomore and told him to 
mind his own business? 

The first time you saw Dr. Umbach vou thought he was Jack Dempsey's 
sparring partner? 

What a good impression you tried to make on Dr. Hambleton and plaster? 

How Dr. Platts looked at you when you said mesio-bucco-disto-occluso prox-

You took one look in vour microscope and then copied a drawing out of

Mac Withey to begin a good course on "How to grow thin." 
Fuerstenau to look up a good hair restorer. Dr. Warner also note. 
The wearing of more pairs of corduroy trousers.

Did This Ever Happen to You'] 

You have worked unknown after an unknown in chemistry and your time is 
up on Friday noon, and you have not been told that you have worked enough 
unknowns, and it is nearing twelve on Friday, and Dr. Kendall announces that 
those that do not finish will have to report at 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon. 
All plans for Saturday afternoon are scattered to the winds but you have 
15 minutes and you have just received another unknown and find out that it 
is an easy one and contains NH 4 , P0 4 and Xa, and you work it through in 
about 10 minutes, and just before 12 o'clock you hand Mac your results and a 
test tube for another solution and he hands the tube back to you and it's empty, 
and tells you that you are through and you look at him dumbfounded and then. 
O then, Freshmen, that grand and glorious feeling suddenly passes over you. 
Wow! O Boy! 



Doctor Borland has quizzed your table in dissection and finding that you 
knew so little he decides not to mark you and give you another chance. He for- 
gets to give you that chance and the second review quiz comes along and Dr. 
Vogt quizzes you and after a most grilling and tedious half hour hands your slip 
back and refuses to give you a mark. That is the second time you have been 
turned down cold. Well, the only thing to do is to cram and hope for another 
opportunity. You've listened to the quiz questions given to other fellows and you 
have learned them pretty well and you think you "know your oil" and then the 
Doctor starts with a question which he has never asked anyone else and then 
follows it up with a lot more just like the first. You answer as best you can 
and then hold your breath and crane your neck and strain your eves to try 
and catch a glimpse of your mark as he puts it down. You are unable to 
see the mark and you wonder and try to imagine what you could have gotten 
and then one of your pals comes up and tells you that you made an eighty-five 
for he saw the Doctor write it down and then, "O Boy! Talk about a grand 
and glorious feelin' ?"

REVISED EDITION 

Listen, my friends, and you shall hear, 

Of the trials of the Freshmen so severe. 

We toil from dawn 'till the setting sun 

And then leave half our work undone. 

To make it worse we must constantly fear. 

The Dean will say, "You're too bum to stay here." 

And the way we are trimmed, why 'twould beggar John D. 

First Ruddy cleans house and then Sayers will see, 

If we have'nt some more that he can grab, too. 

For something whose use no one ever knew. 

And the book store! Well, words which we'd use in this case 

Would be much too strong to print in this place. 

But we are determined they'll get us no more, 

For we'll buy all our books in a good downtown store. 

And now that our tale of woe we have sung, 

We feel for the next class which, like us, will get stung.

MY DRAWING ACCOUNT

I merely am a big fam dool.

Get out your microscopes, my boys. 

Intima must be found. 
The fat and neurons now are o'er, 

Striations sure aren't round. 
Our glassy slides are full of blood 

That clotted long ago. 
Warner'll fill them up this blessed day 

With blood of fresher glow. 
Dear me, dear me, the arteries can't be found 

Till noonday you'll have to go 
Snooping round and round. 
Oh, here they are, well, I'm glad. 

Oh. hush, those veins are lacking, 
To Bailey you will have to go 

Or else they'll go aslacking. 
Now draw some lows and draw some highs 

And draw a couple more, 
A goodly showing must be made 

Or Logan'll come no more. 
After you have made your drawings 

And writ your notes in ink. 
Get out your old and dirty slides 

And take them to the sink. 
And when you've done your ten unknowns 

And feel you're about to fall 
Go down and get your coat and hat 

For reallv that is all.

THINK HARD 
Marcus was walking down Elston Avenue one day and happened to gaze 
at a pair of gloves in the window of Tempter's Haberdashery Shop. On the 
gloves was a tag which read "This size for $10." Marcus looked at the sign,

How I wish that more were there ! 
Gee, I don't know what I'd do. 
Were I deserted now by vou.

EMBARRASSING MOMENTS 

Two of our ambitious classmates, namely, Harry Aronson and Finkelstein, 
having a little spare time on the afternoon of March 20, and knowing that 
Doctor C. N. Johnson was holding" a clinic on the eighth floor of the County 
Hospital, decided to find out what it was all about. They followed the seniors 
up to the room and found seats together in the front row and had been very 
interested in the numerous cases that Dr. Johnson had diagnosed when the 
Doctor suddenly pointed to the front row and said : "You four fellows ( includ- 
ing Aronson and Finkelstein ) come clown here and diagnose this case for us." 

(Note. — It might he interesting to find out how the}- got out of their pre- 
dicament. You might ask them. ) 



Frenchy De Roqtie a short time ago held a little conference with Dr. Kendall 
and towards the end of the time Frenchy spent fully fifteen minutes relating 
to the Doctor the time he had spent each day in studying chemistry and the 
difficulties that he had met with, etc., etc. Frenchy was just leaving the 
chem lab. when Mac — Dr. Kendall's assistant — called him back and handed 
French}- his chemistry text book which Mac said had laid in the office for three 
weeks or more. Kind of tough, eh. French}? 



As Mrs. Strang tossed to and fro in her bed one night the clock struck three, 
and the voice of a little child came plaintively from a crib: 

"Mama." it said. 

"Yes, love?" 

"Mama. I can't sleep. AYon't you please tell me a fairy story?" 

"Wait, my love." said Mrs. Strang. "Your father will soon be home and 
he will tell us both one." 



Biderman — "Didn't you swallow some water when you swore? - ' 
Finley — "Nope, the dams kept it out." 



Gerty — "I'll marry you on one condition." 

Challings-dL'orth — "That's all right. I entered college on four.

Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity 






There is no need to elucidate upon the calibre of the men who make up the 
Beta Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta. A glance at the faculty membership will 
suffice to illustrate that we believe in quality rather than quantity. We have 
striven ever to be discriminating in our selection of men, to be exacting in our 
demands of character, scholarship and genuine good fellowship. Unless a man 
were considered exceptionally gifted in dentistry, he has not been extended the 
palm of fraternalism, he has not become pledged to become a member of 
Delta Sigma Delta. We are proud of our membership and of the individuals 
who make up its personnel. We sincerely hope that the future will prove that 
we have chosen our men well, that our fond expectations will be fully realized. 

Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta was organized at Ann Arbor, Michigan, 
in 1883, the first chapter of any dental fraternity to be organized in the United 
States. Beta Chapter was organized in 1884 at Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery. Dr. C. N. Johnson, present Dean of Students at Chicago Dental and 
past president of the National Dental Association, was one of the first members 
to be initiated into Beta Chapter. Since that time Dr. Johnson has been Worthy 
Master and Grand Master of the fraternity. He is now Editor of the Desmos, 
the Fraternity Quarterly, which position he has held for some years past. Many 
other of the truly great men in dentistry have at one time been members of 
Beta Chapter. More men have graduated into the Supreme Chapter from Beta 
than from any other chapter in the fraternity. 

We have had several homes during the past 38 years of our existence and 
are at present housed at 1441 W. Jackson Boulevard. During the past term, 
however, we have purchased our own Chapter house at 712 So. Ashland Boule- 
vard and we will move into our new quarters at the opening of the next school 
year. 

Socially, the past year has been the most successful that Beta Chapter has 
ever enjoyed. Our first affair was a house-warming smoker, given at our house 
on the night of October 13th, 1922. "Friday the Unlucky" meant nothing what- 
ever in our young lives except that some 200 men, faculty members, chapter 
members and pledges, were present at this grand post-vocational reunion. That 
every man present seemed to enjoy himself was enough of a reward for the 
zealous committee who arranged this smoker in honor of the Freshman. 

Our next epochal event was a Halloween party which was also held at the 
house. We don't know yet whether a force of interior decorators "master- 
pieced" the Beta habitation or whether a flock of hobgoblins, ghostly sprites and 
bewitching witches merely transplanted an eerie corner of elfin fairyland to 
the scene of activities for the evening, but we do know that the result was one 
which Michael Angelo would have given his right arm to have claimed as his 
own, and that was some right arm, too ! 

In chonological sequence came the dance for the freshmen at the Garfield 
Park Refectory. This affair was not as elaborate as any of the others but every- 
one made himself at home so what more could we ask? 

On January 20th we invaded the loop for a dance at the Great Northern 
Hotel. The music was inspiring, the crowd was exceptionally frolicsome and 
the fraternity was more than pleased with the result of this social fantasia. It 
was even better than its predecessors and that is saying considerable. 

The Somerset Hotel, on the north side, witnessed our next attempt at instep 
exercise. As many came as could be accommodated which means that there 



273 



1923 



were probably one or two Beta Sigs in town who were sick in bed. That is 
their tough luck and they'll never know just what they missed. 

Our best yet was the gathering staged at the Webster Apartment Hotel on 
the night of April 28th. This sojourn at the shrine of Terpsichore was, without 
a doubt, the acme of human endeavor, the most brilliant which will ever grace 
the annals of Beta Chapter's illustrious history. It stood out from the other 
affairs like a lily in the midst of a bushel of onions, as stupendous, as scintillating 
a success as it is within the pale of human possibility to achieve. The inspired 
syncopaters who furnished the wherewithal of pleasure played until the wee 
small hours. I say played for lack of a better word to express what they did. 
Yes, sir, a regular, wholesome good time was the one thing everybody had, 
nothin' else but ! This miracle was disguised innocently as a Dinner Dance but 
you could not begin to appreciate it unless you were lucky enough to have been 
there. Even the faculty representatives enjoyed themselves, and at a dance, loo '. 

This last affair was a fitting climax to an exceptionally well arranged year of 
social events. Beta Chapter is proud of her 1923 record.

KAPPA CHAPTER 

Psi Omega was unusually active during the school year of 1922-23 and its 
members enjoyed a delightful social season. 

In the early part of the year an informal dance was held at the West End 
Woman's Club. Many of the boys first put on their dancing shoes at this dance 
and have had them on since, dancing their way through the classes and infirmary, 
always keeping time to the music of the dictators at school. 

A month later a smoker was held at the Crystal Room of the Great Northern 
Hotel. Judging from the amount of laughter and noise the crowd must have 
been worked up to the n'th degree in excitement and surprise. 

The Tri-Chapter dance, held at the Sheridan Plaza, January 19, 1923, opened 
the new year with one of the best social events yet held, such as only the Psi 
Omegas are known to give. At this dance we met our brothers from North- 
western and Illinois. 

A dinner and reception was held at the Elm Tea Room, February 9, 1923. 
Many of our faculty members spoke and a few visitors entertained with speeches 
on some up-to-the-minute topics. 

Another "hop" followed this at the Ambassador Hotel, February 24, 1923. 
This equalled any of our former dances in the hilarity displayed by those 
attending. 

A dinner and reception for our pledges at the Elm Tea Room, March 22, 1923, 
gave the pledges an opportunity to look us over and display their stuff. 

The Palmer House was the next scene of our pleasure seeking invasion and 
a dance was held in the Victorian Room. 

The formal dinner dance to be given at the Drake Hotel in the early part 
of May for our departing seniors will be our most luminous affair. To give 
the seniors a send off on their commencement such as they will never forget, 
will be our aim. 

One of the fraternities that helps to promote good fellowship, loyalty, and 
school spirit at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, is the Psi Omega Fra- 
ternity. Its high standard of requirements in scholarship makes the boys at 
Chicago strive to achieve the best grades possible in order to be able to become 
one of its members. 

For many years multitudes of Psi Omegas have been finishing school, going 
out to practice, and becoming famous because they affiliated with a fraternity 
that imbued principles in them which made them well liked among their fellow 
men. One of these vital principles is the golden rule, which says, "Do unto 
others as you would want others to do unto you." Only recently have students 
begun to realize the tremendous importance of affiliating themselves with a 
fraternity while at school, with the result that there are a finer group of men 
entering these various organizations. 

From a single chapter, founded in 1892 at Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery, Baltimore, Maryland, Psi Omega has grown to forty-seven chapters, 
one in each of the leading dental schools in the country with a membership of 
well over twenty thousand. Of course, this does not mean that Psi Omega in 
its rapid expansion has thought nothing of quality of the candidates for members, 
but to the contrary, it has kept the high standard steadily rising to keep pace 
with the ever progressing profession of dentistry. 

To elevate dentistry from the depths of darkness to the light is always pre- 
eminent in the minds of all good and true Psi Omegans. "May dentistry some 
day become an exact science" — our motto. 

L. J. Pavlicek.

LAM DA CHAPTER 

The Xi Psi Phi Fraternity was founded in 1889 and nine years later Lambda 
Chapter was founded. Lambda Chapter since being established in 1898 has had 
a remarkably rapid growth and is now one of the largest fraternities in the college. 
For the past twenty-five years, the good old ship "Xi Psi Phi" has had many 
rough and rugged routes to travel but has always been successful in bringing 
its loyal crew to their port of knowledge through her friendship, hospitality 
and brotherly love. Many a student on entering college does not seem to grasp 
or appreciate the higher ideals of fraternity life, merely looking upon the frater- 
nity from a social standpoint but once they have entered the secret portals of 
old Xi Psi Phi's realm and have been instructed relative to the wages reaped 
from fraternity life, they will then have a better conception of what this fraternity 
really means and will never regret having taken the step. A student cannot 
appreciate the fraternity with its close friendship hospitality, brotherly love, 
social activities and many other advantages until he has become a "Zip" and 
can realize what is in store for the "ready to go Zip." A student may have many 
friends in school but not until he has become a "Zip" can he realize what friend- 
ship and brotherly love really means. 

Lambda Chapter has been growing rapidly the past few years and it is our 
ambition to be the largest and best chapter enrolled. We have initiated quite a 
"gang" into the mysteries of old Xi Psi Phi this year and still have a few 
"verdant" freshmen to send through the first of next year. 

Owing to the high cost of rent. Lamda Chapter has had to give up her house 
for the present but we hope to purchase one of our own in the near future. 

Lambda Chapter has found time after school hours to hold a few good dances 
and "smokers" in some of the prominent hotels of the city and we hope to be 
able to have a few more as successful during the coming school year. 

We regret that so many of our brother "Zips" are leaving us with this year's 
graduating class but we hope they will be close enough to Lambda to continue 
their loyal support as they have done in the past. 

Two more "Zips," Bros. Stine and Maurer, have joined the ranks of matri- 
mony the past year. 

We regret the death of Brother Chadwick's wife during the latter part of 
January, also Bro. S. S. Batsel's death. 

We are always ready to co-operate with the faculty and help them in any 
way possible. It is our aim to work hard and be among the best for the best is 
none to good for the members of Xi Psi Phi. 

In closing I have a few lines every "Zip" should read and remember the rest 
of their life: 

TODAY . 

Today is what you have, "Zips." It's also what you are. And again. Today 
is what you do. And if you haven't anything and aren't anybody, and do noth- 
ing — why, then, for you there is no Today. 

For, Today is music. Today is art. Today is literature. Today is joy. 
Today is work. Today is play. Today is life. 

Yesterday is no problem, "Zips" — for it is past. Tomorrow is no problem — 
for it isn't here. Today is supremacy. Today is the world.

All history depends upon Today. 

Crowd in upon it, then. Today — take hold upon its faintest chance. Spread 
your smiles — Today. Be glad and great — Today. 
Today is the day — your day, "Zips." 

Today is time and change doing their jobs. Are you a vital part of the play? 
Today you may start out all anew. Today you may put to use what you learned 
a day ago. The center of your entire life may revolve about — Today. 

But, above all things, do not fear — Today. And let all worry slide. All 
things that do not count — let them go, too. Work and help and love — Today. 

For this Today shall never dawn again, "Zips."

Alpha Zeta Gamma 

Alpha Zeta Gamma was organized as Alpha Chapter at the Chicago College 
of Dental Surgery in 1911. It is astonishing to witness what has been accom- 
plished in these few years by those splendid men, who constituted its charter 
members, and their successors. The first three chapters to be organized comprised 
the Chicago schools, but in time the fraternity grew to such extent that now 
Alpha Zeta Gamma can claim a chapter in all the leading dental schools of the 
country, and it is still growing. 

Alpha Zeta Gamma has always stood for fraternalism and good scholarship, 
and Alpha chapter is always for anything that will make our college a better 
place for students to obtain a dental education. This fraternity was the first 
dental fraternity to raise the scholastic standards in requirements for admission. 
No man can now wear the insignia of Alpha Zeta Gamma who has not success- 
fully and honorably completed his freshman year. 

The year 1923 has been a very successful one for Alpha Zeta Gamma. The 
social affairs were started on November 17, 1922, with a smoker at the Sherman 
Hotel in conjunction with Beta chapter. There was a grand turnout and every 
one looked happy. The alumni and the faculty were well represented. 

The first dance of the year was held on December 22nd at the Lincoln Park 
Casino. The music and the hall were perfect and an enjoyable evening was 
passed by all present. 

The next affair was a smoker for members and pledges of the Alpha Chapter 
held at the Morrison Hotel on Jan. 12, 1923. 

The best informal dance that has ever been given by Alpha Chapter was held 
at the Morrison Hotel on March 23rd, 1923. The music and the refreshments 
caused everyone to forget their troubles and all enjoyed the syncopations of 
S. Wagner and his gloom dispellers. 

During the summer months, for the benefit of the members residing in the 
city, a picnic and boat trip were given. 

' For the educational program, many clinics and lectures were given by the 
members of the Alumni by which the fraters benefited greatly. 

The crowning social event of the year was a dinner dance at the Sherman 
Hotel, April 29th, 1923. The dinner was followed by an elaborate program com- 
posed of various artistic entertainments and dancing, which served as stimulat- 
ing facts toward the friendship and intimacy which always prevails. 

Alpha Zeta Gamma has also been active athletically. Our basketball team 
has gone through this season without meeting any defeats. It has played inter- 
fraternal games in the school and also many other games. 

Our baseball team has just been organized and we expect to do as well in 
this branch. 

The year of 1923 was closed with the installation of new officers which was 
held at the Sherman Hotel. A supper was given at the College Inn followed by 
the installation ceremonies. 

S. B. Goldberg, Historian.

The Trowel Fraternity 

The Trowel Fraternity, as it is now called, was previously known as the 
Trowel Club, and had its origin in the Dental College of the Northwestern Uni- 
versity. Members of the faculty and students belonging to the Masonic organi- 
zation there thought it a good plan to band together and form an organization 
separate from the so-called Greek letter organizations, and so it happened that 
the Trowel Club was founded. 

A student or faculty member eligible to join must be a Master Mason in good 
standing. 

This organization proved itself to be very successful and within a short time 
a second chapter was formed at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery and 
later many other colleges formed similar organizations and at the present time 
nearly every university in the United States has some form of a trowel organi- 
zation. 

Its main object in view at present is to bring all these organizations together 
and make it a national organization. Thus far it has been very successful. Many 
have already banded together, under the name of the Trowel Fraternity, with 
the probability of many more joining before the next school term begins. 
A meeting for this purpose will be held at Cleveland, Ohio, this summer. 

The main purpose of the Trowel Fraternity is to promote clinics and lectures 
along professional lines, especially those pertaining to the dental profession. 
Much knowledge is so gained, especially for the under classmen who may be 
able to grasp some information about a subject, even though they have not as 
yet studied it. 

Meetings are held twice a month which are made very desirous to attend, 
because of the splendid dinners given in conjunction with each and every 
meeting. 

Knowledge is not all this organization seeks to promote, for recreation plays 
a great part in its teachings also. 

Occasional banquets and dances are given, and are enjoyed by all its mem- 
bers, for they are always, without question, clean cut affairs. 

Next year will find the organization with its own house, plans of which are 
under full swing now. 

Let us not forget the Tri-Chapter Fraternity meeting held at the North- 
western University Building, with delegates from Illinois and Marquette Dental 
School of Milwaukee, Wis. It was a successful meeting and proved to be an 
exceptionally fine way to learn what other chapters were doing. 

The success of this chapter may be credited to Dr. P. G. Puterbaugh for his 
fatherly advice and the keen interest he has so faithfully and willingly bestowed 
upon it.

Veterans Vocational Club 

A few months prior to the close of the World War, our government saw the 
need of caring for its disabled soldiers ; not only in regard to giving them adequate 
hospital facilities, but to give them training in vocations which would enable them 
to support themselves. To be eligible to training under the U. S. Veterans Bureau 
the claimant must have a disability incurred in line of duty for which he is 
drawing compensation, and this disability must be of such a nature as to handicap 
him in his former vocation. Training is given in any line of work compatible 
with the man's disability, and the recognized colleges, schools, and shops of the 
country are used for this purpose. The U. S. Veterans Bureau pays all expenses 
incident to a course of training, and in cases of a severe disability and handicap 
gives an allowance of $100.00 per month for maintenance. 

The Veterans Vocational Club was organized a year ago at our college to 
aid in the administration of manifold problems relative to our course of training. 
Seven more "gold brickers" joined our ranks this year making a total of twenty- 
four men now in training. 

We are very grateful to Uncle Sam for giving us a Dental Education, and 
we would like the public to know that the disabled veterans are being cared for 
and trained in a manner above criticism or reproach. And yet too much cannot 
be accorded these men when you consider .that Russell must use an ear-trumpet, 
that Delling finds it hard to gain that pound a week, and that McCullough is 
obliged to refrain from dancing and the lighter frivolities because of his heart. 

Great moments in the life of a vocational trainee are the 5th and 20th of each 
month when the great American Eagle flies over, and once a month when a 
petite little nurse calls to determine if any are suffering from insomnia, anorexia, 
or similar maladies. 

Last December a few of our number were guests at a Banquet and Entertain- 
ment given by the Elks Club of Chicago, "The Men Who do not Forget," at 
their club rooms. Last summer we were given a two weeks vacation at the 
Summer Vacation Camp, Fort Sheridan, Illinois, and we are looking forward 
to an equally good time this summer.

EDWARD N. KARST 
Karst is conceded to be one of the best basket-ball players in the country. 
Many critics consider him the best forward ever developed and he has been 
placed on the all-American A. A. U. team and all-state 
five (Wisconsin) many times during the past few years. 
Karst started his basketball career in grammar school some 
13 years ago. In 1913, he made the high school team at 
Fond du Lac, Wis. He was captain in 1914, '15 and '16, 
and aided materially in winning the State Championship 
in 1915 and 1916. He was named all-state captain in 
1915 and 1916. In 1919 Karst played for Marquette and 
was captain of the A. A. U. championship team of that 
year. He was at the time picked as ail-American for- 
ward. He played with Madison, Wis., also in 1919, 
being a member of the famous Olympic Club Basketball 
quintet which annexed the Central A. A. U. Champion- 
ship in 1919. 
Karst is conceded to be one of the best basketball players in the country. 
Wisconsin in that year. He played with the Milwaukee Bright Spots in 1920, 
at that time considered one of the most powerful teams in the country. This 
team won the professional championship of Wisconsin in 1920. Karst entered 
the Chicago College of Dental Surgery in the fall of 1921 and immediately made 
connections wit hthe Desota Council, K. C, basketball team. He was a member 
of this quintet when it won the championship of the K. C. League in 1921. 
Karst also played in countless games in Milwaukee, Fond du Lac, ' and other 
cities in Wisconsin during the seasons of 1922 and 1923. 

Eddie is indeed a wizard with the basketball and deserves every honor that 
he has acquired as perhaps the foremost basketball player in the LTnited States. 

FRANK G. KOCHANSKI 
Frank G. Kochanski has 
been competing for C. C. 
D. S. in all the leading 
track events since his ma- 
triculation at the college 4 
years ago. During this 
time he has won races 
staged by the most promi- 
nent clubs of the city. He 
has been forced to be con- 
tent with second place in 

many of the races having been beaten always by his former team mate, Joie Ray 
of the I. A. C, whom many regard as the world's greatest middle distance runnei. 

In 1918 while competing for Crane High School he boasted of a win over 
Ray in the 880-yd. handicap run held under the auspices of the Illinois Athletic 
Club. Shortly after this race he joined the I. A. C, won the 5-mile Central 
A. A. U. championship and helped establish, with C. V. O'donald. B. J. Gerald 
and J. W. Ray, the National A. A. U. 4-mile relay record which still stands. 

In all his competition under the college colors, he has scored in every meet, 
placing C. C. D. S. above Northwestern University, Notre Dame and Detroit U. 

There is still another meet that he expects to compete in for C. C. D. S. and 
that is the Intercollegiate at De Paul Field May 26th, 1923. 

To represent the U. S. A. and C. C. D. S. at the Olympic Games in 1924 at 
Paris is the goal Frank is shooting at.

E. A. KOKOT 

"Koke" is one of the best amateur bicycle riders in the Middle 
West. He is a member of the Alverno A. C, a prominent athletic 
organization in Chicago. He was a runner-up for the Middle \\ est 
Bicycle Championship, losing by a close margin of only two points. 
He was the only one to score in all events. He won many unpaced 
and sprint events. Koke is still going strong and we expect much 
of him as a future cyclist. 



JOE P. MILLER 

Joe is a crack semi-pro pitcher, well- 
known around Chicago and throughout the 
West. While with the Naval Aviation 
Corps in France, in 1918, he won 27 out of 
28 games. In 1919 he pitched for Minne- 
sota in the American Association and later he went to 
Saskatoon, Canada, in the Western Canadian League. 
He led the league in pitching while there. In 1920, he 
was with Oklahoma City in the Western League. He 
played outlaw baseball in the Iron Range in 1921 where he 
was the leading pitcher, winning 18 consecutive games. 
During the season of 1922 he played semi-pro baseball 
in Illinois, finishing the season with the Elgin, 111., Legion 
team. He established an enviable record here by winning 
21 out of 23 games played. He helped win the county 
and state championships for the legion team by his bril- 
liant pitching. 





g. r. Mclaughlin 

"Jerry's" baseball record is just as magnificent as that of 
Joe Miller's. He is a twirler of no mean reputation, having 
started pitching for the U. of I. Freshman- Varsity team in 
1917. His record, including his semi-pro connections, follows: 

U. of I. Freshman Varsity, 1917-18. 
Gary Industrial League, 1919-20, won 17, lost 7. 
South Dakota Sunshine League, 1920-21, won 12. lost 2. 
Marcus Iowa Independents, 1921-22, won 13, lost 4. 
Sherwood A. C, Chicago, 1922-23, won 9, lost 2. 

In the spring of 1920, while playing in the Gary, Ind., 
Industrial League, Jerry lost an eleven inning game to "Dixie" 
Leverett, who is now one of the leading twirlers of the Chicago 
White Sox. The score of this scintillating affray was 4 to 2. 
It is quite an honor to lose a game to a pitcher of Leverett's 
ability, especially when you come within one hit of winning it.

HARRY PAULE 

Harry "Ostropolis" Paule is another one of C. C. 
D. S.'s lovely athletes. He is known to the wrestling 
world under the name of Ostropol. 

Harry has been in the wrestling game for 8 years, 
starting his career in the "teenie weenie" class. He 
showed considerable class as a boy and soon developed 
into one of the best 115-pound grapplers. He held the 
South Park championship in 1919. In 1916 he won 
the Y. M. C. A. championship as well as the West 
Park's. During the season of 1918-19, he copped the 
I. G. U. and the A. A. F. championships. He has won 
second place in many other meets. Paule attributes 
his wonderful wrestling ability to his faithful trainer, 
"Bill Redlich." 

WILLIAM E. REDLICH 

Redlich is a natural born ice-skater. He won the City Figure Skating Title 

as far back as 1917. "Bill" turned to speed skating later, establishing a new 

playground record for the half-mile in 1921-22 season. 

He also competed in many other events, winning first 

place several times. 

"Bill," the "flying Dutchman," had the distin- 
guished honor of skating this year on two continents. 
Last fall while in Europe, Bill gave his native country- 
men a practical demonstration of American speed and 
showed his heels to the Berlin skaters at the indoor 
skating arena of that city. He copped first in the 440, 
880 and took second in the mile. Not bad for a day's 
work. 

When the skating season opened in Chicago Bill, 

under the care of his trainer and manager, Paule 

Ostropolis, was entered in all of the city meets. The 

season was started off in good order, Bill taking first 

in the open mile of the city meet, and second place the 

following week. But in the third meet of the year he 

was spiked in the right leg on the home stretch and 

finished third. 

This leg proved a handicap for the rest of the season and Bill was forced 

to quit earlier than he intended to. But he is not through by any means and 

intends to come back stronger next year. We expect to hear from him in the 

future.

GEORGE J. PORTER. 

Porter is considered one of the best swimmers in the city and the main prop 
of the famous Sinai Social Center team. This team has not lost a meet in or out 

«of Chicago in the last eleven years and now holds the championship 
of the American Athletic Federation of Chicago. 
During the Pageant of Progress Porter, Dick Howell of the 
I. A. C, Ward and McMahon won the life guard championship of 
the city of Chicago. Porter is now the 40 yard champion of the 
A. A. F. of Chicago. He recently beat Russel Ward, formerly of Hyde Park, in 
the 40-yard event. His time on this occasion was 194^ seconds. 

George is a real fellow, congenial and modest, despite the fact that he has 
already won fifty or more medals as a result of his swimming prowess. 






Y. M. C. A. 



The purpose of the Y. M. C. A. is to aid the students and to help them to 
develop their physical, moral and spiritual qualities. It strives to help the stu- 
dents socially, and institute discussion groups in the schools and various frater- 
nities. It also aids the student in obtaining a proper rooming or boarding place. 
Its aim is to promote good fellowship among the students regardless of race or 
nationality. 

Our success in these noteworthy endeavors depends upon the active co-opera- 
tion of the students. Our organization is so developed that at a minimum of 
cost and red tape, we are prepared to aid and help the student in any matter pos- 
sible. We are not trying to put anything over. We always welcome suggestions 
from the students regarding the "Y" program. 

When you return to the school this fall, our organization will be right there 
to afford you all the help you need. Regardless of whether you are a member or 
a contributor, do not hesitate to appeal to us in any emergency. 

WE ARE HERE TO HELP THE STUDENT. _ A \

Before You Can 
Practice Dentistry 

Before you can open an office for the practice of dentistry 
several important factors must be taken into consideration. 

J. Where to locate. 

II. How to equip your office. 

III. Who to go to for information and service. 

Any first-class dental dealer can help you solve these problems to a greater or less extent. 
During the past ten years we have probably located and equipped as many dentists as any 
concern in America. 

99 1 2 per cent of the men located by the C. L. Frame 
Company have been successful because: 

I. In selecting a location we hove been considered not only the possibilities for a dentist 
in the community, but also the fittedness of the man for the place. Our acquaintance 
with him during his college career enables us to judge of this. 

II. When an office is leased every effort is made to see that the most favorable terms possible 
are secured both as to rent and revisions. 

III. All revision work is superintended by one of our equipment experts. We have at oui 
command a corps of plumbers, carpenters, electricians and interior decorators. This 
insures quick and correct results with minimum expense. 

IV. Pleasing office environment tends to insure success. Great pains are taken to select 
interior decorations that are harmonious and in keeping with the dignity of the profession. 
Notwithstanding this, no dentist should be satisfied with appearances only. All C. L. 
Frame offices are EFFICIENT as well as BEAUTIFUL. 

V. Poor business methods cause more failures in dentistry than any other factor. Some of 
the most successful practices in Chicago are operated in accordance with systems advo- 
cated by us and installed under our direction. Every effort is made to see that the men 
whom we locate get the proper start in this respect. 

Regardless of where or when you are going to locate, we would be pleased to 
consult with you on any of the problems pertaining to your prospective office.

You Should Have and Can 
Have a Good Equipment 

A high grade equipment is a wonderful asset to any 
dentist; there is no doubt about that. 

With a fine equipment you are not cnly in a position 
to do good work; you are inspired to do good work, 
and your office will command the respect of your clients 
by its adequate and prosperous appearance. 

The purchase of S. S. White equipment does not 
require a great amount of cash; you can pav for it 
from the current proceeds of your practice. 

The deferred payment plan will enable you to set 
up a modern, thoroughly fine operating room and start 
your practice right.

Electro Dental Unit 

A COMPLETE OPERATING UNIT 

The dentist has only his time and skill to sell. 
He can make them count only when he has efficient 
equipment. Economy points to an Electro Dental 
Unit because it is the final word in operating 
units — in efficiency, precision and appearance. 



It comprises : 

Engine 

Electro Dental Light (Rhein) 

Automatic Switchboard 

Bracket Table 
Fountain Cuspidor 
Air Compressor 
Set of Instruments 
Hot Air Syringe 
Cutoff 

Water Heater 
Atomizer Heater and 

Atomizers 
X-Ray Picture Reader 
Pedestals and Base 



Those who are not 
prepared to purchase 
the Senior Unit are 
advised to consider the 
merits of the Junior 
Unit. By adding cer- 
tain parts to the Junior, 
it becomes a Senior, thus illustrating the princi- 
ple of growth rather than replacement. 

For further details, consult your dealer.
