THE DENTOS — 1924 



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

To him who has guided us with a firm but 
gentle hand, who has helped us over the rough 
spots by sane and practical advice, and who has 
rejoiced with us when we did well and sympathized 
with us when we faltered — to him whom we like 
to call "P. G." we respectfully dedicate this book.

THE DENTOS — 1924 


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

Dr. Puterbaugh was born on the "banks of the Wabash" near Onward, Indiana, 
on February 10, 1883. His early life was spent on his father's farm and his ele- 
mentary and high school training was gleaned from the public schools at Onward. 
Although his mother wished him to receive a theological education, he entered 
the Chicago College of Dental Surgery in the fall of 1899 and graduated from 
that institution with the class of 1902. 

Dr. Puterbaugh returned to the Hoosier state and conducted a general practice 
of dentistry in the town of Kirklin. After a period of six years of successful prac- 
tice he realized that the future of dentistry demanded a more thorough training 
in the basic sciences. This realization lead him to abandon his practice and in 
1908 to matriculate in the Chicago College of Medicine and Surgery. 

Upon his graduation from medicine in 1912 the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery claimed his services. Since then he has been in continuous association 
with that institution in various teaching capacities; and in addition to this he 
has conducted a private practice that has been limited to Oral Surgery and the 
treatment of Pyorrhea Alveolaris. 

The doctor has served as an instructor in Anatomy, Oral Surgery, Materia 
Medica, and Therapeutics and has been Professor of Anesthesia, Radiology, and 
Principles of Medicine. In addition to these various roles he has superintended 
the work of the clinical departments. When the faculty was reorganized in 1919, 
he became the secretary. This position he now occupies, as well as that of Pro- 
fessor of Medicine, Anesthesia and Therapeutics and Superintendent of the In- 

Dr. Puterbaugh has been active in the dental societies of Indiana and Illinois, 
as well as in the American Dental Association. He has been called upon to perform 
innumerable services as officer and committeeman, and he has presented numerous 
papers before these organizations upon the subjects of Conductive Anesthesia. 
Pyorrhea Alveolaris, Oral Surgery and Therapeutics. 

In recognition of his ability and of his meritorious work for the betterment 
and advancement of the profession he was awarded a Fellowship in the American 
College of Dentists by that body at their meeting in Los Angeles in 1922. 

The doctor has served as president of the Alumni Association of his school, 
as well as Worshipful Master of Kirklin Lodge, A.F. and A.M. He has also been 
called upon to fill the chair of Worthy Master of the Chicago Auxiliary, of Delta 
Sigma Delta Fraternity. ■

That we are only students, 
You all can plainly see; 
But don't you well remember 
When vou were such as we? 

We'll all become good dentists 
Sometime, like you, we trust. 
We try each day to do our best, 
And never, never loaf. 

Our mediocre efforts 
We bring to show to you. 
Under your expert training, 
We'll know just what to do. 

If there should be no students, 
No dentists would there be; 
So please try to be lenient, 
As important are we.

To President Dr. Truman W. Brophy and his eminent associates of the Board 
of Trustees; to Dean William H. G. Logan and his distinguished associates of 
the teaching and administrative faculties; to President Earle H. Thomas and his 
worthy and noted associates of the alumni; to Dean C. N. Johnson and the present 
student body of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, I extend a hearty greeting 
and a most cordial welcome into the fraternity of colleges which constitute the 
departments of learning of Loyola University. 

Just as my knowledge of the past record and present standing of your school 
convinces me that your identification with the University not only enlarges its 
sphere of activity but likewise enhances its scholastic credit, by reason of the 
amply demonstrated superior type of teaching and study done in your halls; 
so my more intimate acquaintance with the spirit, aims, organization and achieve- 
ments of the other colleges of the University enable me to assure you that your 
new university associations cannot but enlarge your educational opportunities, 
and further enhance the already high value of your academic degrees. 

The educational policy of Loyola University is, I am sure, quite in accord 
with the best thoughts of those most interested in the future of the Chicago College 
of Dental Surgery. It is two-fold; first, to surround those who commit themselves 
to its tutelage with every cultural influence, and to disclose to their inquiring 
minds, in due season and with due regard to life's sacred purposes, every form 
and phase and vestige of truth which the human intellect has thus far discerned 
by its scrutiny of the visible universe; second, to develop within its various de- 
partments men and women keen and resourceful in research, looking for the 
truth with wide open minds, unclouded by prejudice of any sort, and under no 
restraint save the law of just respect for already certainly established truths, 
and for the consequences of those truths as expressed in the proprieties of human 

Bespeaking your enthusiastic support of the whole University, and assuring 
you a place of permanent equality with every other college of the University 
in my plans and labors for the advancement of all, I am, 

Very devotedly yours,

Kind girls, we welcome you each day. 
With songs of merry glee; 
Your loving smile we strive to win; 
Each face we love to see. 

Good wishes then to one and all. 
Your smiles we do implore; 
And may we never miss the light 
Of faces we adore.

THE D E N T O S ■ 


Out of the Maze of a bookish world. 
Through with the days of learning, 
Glorious thoughts of the future come 
Filling a long sought yearning. 

Struggles and strife have long been our lot; 
Obstacles were surmounted. 
Many lessons we're glad we were taught 
All were with joy discounted. 

Unlearned infants we entered the halls 
Of our school, thirsting for knowledge — 
Hoping that we would weather the squall 
We would meet in our four years of college. 

Finally as Seniors we ran the last lap, 
Thinking of graduation, 
Striving to merit a gown and cap 
Acme of our elation. 

Now its over; we feel a grand peace. 
Tempered with sweets of Success — 
From school worries we've now a surcease; 
Our efforts need no redress. 

We have tried hard to win our degree, 
Be of some use to mankind, 
And while treading the sands of Life's sea, 
To leave good footprints behind. 

G. R. McLaughlin, 




Ah! my heart is weary waiting, 

Waiting for the May — 
Waiting for the pleasant rambles, 
Where the fragrant hawthorn brambles. 
With the woodbine alternating, 

Scent the dewy way. 
Ah! my heart is weary waiting. 

Waiting for the May. 

Ah! my heart is sick with longing, 

Longing for the May — 
Longing to escape from study 
To the fair young face and ruddy, 

And the thousand charms belonging 

To the summer's day. 
Ah! my heart is sick with longing, 

Longing for the May. 

Ah! my heart is sore with sighing, 

Sighing for the May — 
Sighing for their sure returning 
\\ hen the summer-beams are burning, 
Hopes and flowers that dead or dying 

All the winter lay. 
Ah! my heart is sore with sighing, 

Sighing for the May. 

Ah! my heart is pained with throbbing, 

Throbbing for the Ma}' — 
Throbbing for the seaside billows, 
Or the water-wooing willows, 

Where in laughing and in sobbing 

Glide the streams away. 
Ah! my heart is pained with throbbing, 

Throbbing for the Ma} - . 

\\ aiting, sad, dejected, weary, 

Waiting for the May. 
Spring goes by with wasted warnings — 
Moonlit evenings, sunbright mornings — 
Summer comes, yet dark and dreary 

Life still ebbs away — 
Man is ever weary, weary, 

Waiting for the May!

G. R. McLaughlin, President 

Members of the Faculty, Fellow Students, and Friends: The class of '24 greets 
you all and welcomes you this evening to the exercises of its own great day, its 
commencement, the eve of its "Great Transition". 

For the last time we sit in this sometimes not too popular amphitheatre as 
undergraduates. On the morrow we undergo a grave change of environment, we 
relinquish our student habilaments and fare forth to pass muster in the eyes of 
our fellow beings as Doctors of Dental Surgery. This is the first time we can stan 
here in our Dean's well merited place, with the Dean's own prerogative of saying 
anything that occurs to us, or that has been carefully planned beforehand, with 
the pleasant consciousness that that same Dean will not arise and reprove this 
same Senior Class for unbecoming levity in the amphitheatre, in the presence of 
its intellectual superiors. It is hard to realize our own importance, difficult to 
express the personal satisfaction of the conqueror with which we are all rightly 
imbued. And yet, this great joy of ours, this joy of success in this, our greatest 
endeavor, brought about by this long sought hour of graduation, is tinged with 
a vague feeling of regret. It is as if we had tirelessly plodded up some great mount- 
ain, striven painstakingly and slowly to reach its summit, where we expected to 
enter some magnificient, Utopian, cloud-village, only to find that at the end of 
our journey we had come abruptly out upon the brink of a yawning precipice. 
This precipice, dear friends, marks the beginning of a yawning chasm in which 
must needs be a sad dissolution of time ripened friendships. Fate, with a sadly 
perverted sense of humor, I fear, has brought us together out of this chaos of 
existence to become deeply endeared to one another, only to ruthlessly put asunder 
our companionships just as they were about to blossom forth into flowers of sincerest 
mutual regard. But such is the price of success. Anything that is well w r orth 
obtaining is well worth asking for, even though, in asking for it, we may full)-' realize 
that it must be bartered for and that, in the exchange, we must sacrifice some one 
thing to gain another. 

Other classes have come before us and there will be still others succeed us; 
but the class of '24 is different, not only in the overworked sense of the word, but 
as tradition aids in its chronology. 

We entered the doors of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery as' the first 
new class under the present regime. We have spent four long years under its 
careful guidance, and can now proudly say that we are the first hand raised class 
to graduate under that regime. As freshmen we began to creep through a maze 
of books; we plodded aimlessly through our sophomore year gaining courage to 
face the future with each new bit of knowledge; as juniors we began to walk un- 
aided; and now, as graduates, we proudly stalk before the theatre of the world, 
secure in the knowledge that we have qualified as actors on the stage of that 

I would fondly digress to several of the high-lights of our stages of development, 
the while trying not to venture into the province of the historian or the prophet. 
Who among us can forget our introduction as Freshmen, to Rodney Gunpuncher, 
Peter Axehandle and the taking of plaster of paris impressions? Who cannot 
recall our research work as Sophomores, into the various idiosyncracies of the 
amoeba? Where in our midst is a man who enjoyed his first practical adjustment 
of the rubber dam? Not a man here recall's these incidents but to smile in reminis- 
cence. And the Faculty? Heretofore we have always talked more fluently upon 
the Faculty when they were not present. But now we make public proclamation 
of our deep regard for this splendid body of men. 

We have ventured timorously into the garden of learning and partaken of the 



fruit of knowledge. We have inherited, to a minor extent, the very characteristics 
of our most worthy teachers. We can be thankful indeed that this esteemed body 
of professional scholars took such a deep personal interest in us, their first complete 
offering to humanity. Complete I say because we "went through" under them, 
were carefully nursed from the infancy of the laiety to the mature knowledge of 
graduate doctor of dental surgery, by their untiring efforts. The infinite wisdom 
and careful guidance of our teachers will forever be our cherished heritage. Upon 
their excellent tutorship shall be based our degree of success in our profession. 
How queer we must have appeared to the faculty in our scholastic infancy, how 
ungainly and awkward we must have been. And yet, this esteemed body of men, 
viewing askance the heterogeneous conglomeration of elephantine monstrosities, 
were not intimidated. Rolling up their sleeves, the master sculptors proceeded 
about their work of molding our lives with only such zealous aptitude as they 
alone are capable of. With painstaking effort they molded shapeless masses of 
clay into definite beings, rounding off a corner here, carefully aligning our plastic 
personalities into concentric arrangement there, and building a definite character 
into what had been a nameless nonenity. And then they breathed into that bit of 
clay, the soul of knowledge, endowed with the properties of a working, living master- 
piece, made it a fit subject for the title of Doctor of Dental Surgery. This task 
of theirs was by no means an easy one, as many flaws had to be eradicated from 
each and every one of us. And yet, this splendid group was undaunted at the 
prospect, refused to succumb to defeat, and can now take their reward in our 
achievement. From now on we are severed from their guidance; we must work 
out our own future. They have done all that is humanly possible in girding our 
loins to meet the foes of the future. Whatever hazards we may meet from now on, 
in the course of life, must be overcome by our own efforts. We alone can achieve 
a moral par of existence and maintain it. 

Doctors of Dental Surgery. Just what does that title mean to us? It means 
that we are privileged to serve humanity, that we are guardians of the lives of the 
people with whom we shall come into contact, that we are sentinels to stand at 
the entrance of the oral cavity and to safeguard it against invasion of foreign 
origin which may cause serious physical complications once they have gained access. 
It means that we are qualified to correct any ills that may be present within that 
cavity, that we can restore lost dental organs, aiding unfortunate beings to correct 
grave faults of existence which interfere greatly with the proper metabolism of 
their physical selves, with the building up and maintainence of a sound, healthy 
body. A professional man can well appreciate the powers with which a doctor of 
dental surgery is endowed because of his knowledge of science. 

But what does our title mean to the laiety? It means that we have their respect 
for the knowledge we have acquired, that they will sooner or later be forced to 
recognize as a potent factor in the regulation of their very beings. Never before 
have the teachings of science been so fully understood and so generally applied 
in the various departments of industry. Wherever there has appeared to be the 
necessity for the application of a principle for any special purpose, the demand 
has been quickly met. The world has recognized dentistry as a great factor in 
the prolongation of human life and has therefore a keen regard and a sincere respect 
for its disciples, because the world desires the success of every enterprise or in- 
stitution which has for its aim the betterment of mankind, and which tends to 
bring men into closer and more fraternal relations. 

Because we have confessed by our scholastic endeavors to an ambition to be 
alive, to feel and think what is best, do not conclude that our development is com- 
plete, do not think that we are smugly content in our ability to stand alone. Far 
too great in numbers are the dentists throughout the land who have attained their 



professional credentials only to drop into a rut of social and fraternal inactivity. 
They have become submerged by their degree and have allowed their personalities 
to become subservient to their profession. They are likened to the undertaker 
who, having secured his portion of the world's riches by monotonously interring 
his fellow men, comes at last to the point where he himself must undergo a transi- 
tion into an underground catalytic agent for various indigenous herbs, and is sub- 
merged in the machinations of what had been his own schemings. Let us profit 
by their errors and give our personalities an opportunity to develop in each of their 
many sided natures. To accomplish this we need help from and contact with our 
fellow beings, an appreciable amount of sunshine and a full share of foolish pleas- 
ures, too. These last named necessities of life cannot all be obtained in the atmos- 
phere of a dental office. We must throw off the shackels of convention, as it were, 
and go out after these "vital incidentals". Let us never be justly accused of being 
professionally alert and at the same time socially inert, unless we would become 
turned in upon ourselves. Such accusations will grow upon us until, from sheer 
self consciousness, we will be forced into that narrowness of mind of which we are 

But enough of this conversational fol-de-rol. You will, I hope, pardon the little 
egotism that marks its unfolding when you consider that, conceit in so far as we 
can; we hope you will take an interest. We feel that the good things of the year 
'24 belongs to us. We are not sure but that we owe this balmy, bracing springtime 
to the season's favoritism for its protegee class. 

We leave this school with the added prestige of our newly affiliated University 
inscription proudly gracing our diploma. We appreciate this added prestige which 
comes of our recent connection with Loyola University. Close contact with the 
remarkable body of Jesuit priests, than whom there are no better educators in 
our great L nited States, can only serve to enhance the value of our already priceless 

We "graduate" from our Alma Mater, together with our teachers who have 
now terminated their first four years under the jurisdiction of that loyal, unselfish 
triumvirate of educators, Dr. Truman W. Brophy, Dr. Charles N. Johnson, and 
Dr. William H. G. Logan. In parting we may, with due propriety, wish you 
happiness for always but, first, with us, today. To insure the fulfilment of that 
wish, I can use no better method than to remind you that you are, figuratively 
speaking, fellow members of the class of '24, and further, to create you honorary 
members of the class of '24. Nor do I feel that I am presuming upon the good will 
of my classmates in so doing when I say to them that the duty of an honorary 
member is: first, to be appreciative, second, to be appreciative, and, forever, to 
be appreciative. 

To be taught is a wonderful privilege, to teach others is still a greater one. 
The class of '24 appreciates to the fullest extent how much you have lessened our 
burden and brightened our lives. We shall try our best to repay you by going 
forth to our destined stations and striving to emulate you. Thus we will be a credit 
to you, to our community, to our profession and most important of all, to ourselves.

THE DENTOS — 1924 


J. J. Toth, Historian 

"A true friend is one who knows all about you, and loves you just the same." 

The Class of 1924 was one of the most heterogenous student bodies that ever 
entered the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. Students of all ages, tempera- 
ments, and nationalities were grouped together to make Dentistry their life work. 

The opening exercises were held on the evening of October 5, 1920, in the large 
amphitheatre in the college. We will all remember how we were impressed by the 
military manner in which our Dean Logan announced the routine of classes. 

By January, our class was organized and the following officers were elected: 
O. N. Quant, President; B. E. Stark, Vice-President; J. D. Blair, Secretary; W. 
Lowy, Treasurer; S. Szchs, Editor; F. Beidka, Sergeant-at-Arms; J. J. Toth, 
Cartoonist and Business Manager; and G. R. McLaughlin, Assistant Editor. 
About this time the "Small-pox panic" resulted from Mr. Shippee's exposure. 
After all had been vaccinated, at least one of our worries was ended for our entire 
school career. Social affairs in the freshman year were replaced by athletics which 
had hitherto been a thing of seeming impossibility. Moreover, during the first 
year of our school life in April our Alma Mater attained the Class A rating. 

At the opening of the Sophomore year a hotly contested class election resulted 
in the choice of the following: H. D. Kesling, President; S. Slavin, Vice-President; 
L. Van Note, Secretary; M. Schneider, Treasurer; J. D. Blair, Sergeant-at-Arms; 
L. J. Pavlicek, Editor; S. Sachs and F. F. Enck, Associate Editors; G. R. McLaugh- 
lin, Cheer Leader; F. Biedka, Assistant Cheer Leader; W. Redlick, Cartoonist; 
and J. J. Toth, Business Manager. The "Smoker" held at the Great Northern 
Hotel on the night of December 16, 1921, was an affair never to be forgotten by 
our class. Everyone took part. Mr. Leavitt came very nearly indulging in a smoke, 
but, instead, he and Knospe played tag in the halls. We shall never forget the 
first appearance of the tailor-made glasses, worn on the occasion, by L. Wagner, 
which nearly ended in the fatal accident. of covering his gorgeous smile. Later 
in the year the Student Council was organized, to which a portion of our class 
was elected. 

The Junior Year became an important one in our college career because of 
the founding of the infirmary and the introduction of the white coat. The word 
"disappointment" was added to our vocabulary, but this was offset by many 
repairs that were made for the improvement of our school. The election of officers 
was held with the following results: H. Solomon, President; E. B. Penn, Vice-Presi- 
dent; E. Karst, Secretary; W. Hartford, Editor; J. C. Brady, and F. H. Spickerman, 
Assistant Editors; W. Lowry, Treasurer; G. A. Silhan, Cartoonist; H. Asher, 
Business Manager; and S. Goldstein, Sergeant-at-Arms. A Class Smoker was held 
December 16, 1923, at the La Salle Hotel. At the end of our third year a few of 
our classmates decided to spend the next year in other colleges. 

The Senior Year was characterized by the instilling of a new spirit into the 
faculty, the acquiring of new equipment, and the college being in the "Nth" power 
of good management. In the class election the following officers were chosen: 
G. R. McLaughlin, President; W. Redlich, 1st Vice-President; L. Wagner, 2nd

Cheer Leader; A. J. Hoatson, Chairman of Executive Committee; J. D. Blair, 
J. E. Griffin, F. Biedka, and I. M. Slavin, members of Executive Committee. 

This has been the most memorable year of our college life and of our Alma 
Mater. While we shall always look back with fond memories to the four pleasant 
and profitable years spent in the Chicago College of Dental Surgery, we shall 
also look forward with pride to the great future of our college as the dental depart- 
ment of Loyola University.

G. C. Pike, Valedictorian 


It is my pleasant but distasteful duty to bid the official farewell of the class of 
1924 of the Chicago College -of Dental Surgery. We are filled with a great joy of 
self satisfaction that our goal of four years has at last been attained, that the door 
of the future has opened at last to us as Doctors of Dental Surgery. On the morrow 
we step into our respective careers as individuals rather than as a body, to do our 
bit toward safeguarding the health of humanity. We sincerely trust that the 
success which has so well attended our efforts during the past four years will 
continue to attend as we walk unaided in our various paths. That we will each 
feel a keen regret at the severing of intimate friendships is a well known fact. Yet 
there is an end to all things, "to the shortest path and longest lane there comes an 
end." With tenderness we breathe the word "farewell", with earnest mein we 
utter it for it bears in its accent a blessing, a benediction, and a prayer. 

Ours was the first class to enter the old college as Freshmen under the present 
regime. We have traversed four years of toil and worry under its careful tutelage. 
We graduate now as the first class to have completed the course of dental surgery 
under its efficient government. The greater service we may render the public, 
the greater the reward and the more honored will be our profession, the more credit 
will be due our teachers. 

Fellow class men, you have merited the title "Doctor" because of the knowledge 
you possess; for the unselfish skill with which you are able to render unto mankind 
and for the aid you may give nature in molding and maintaining a greater physical 
and intellectual man. With you alone rests the fulfillment of your obligations. 
By following, as well as you are able, the dictates of your own conscience, keeping 
always before you a code of physical and moral ethics, you can not but justify 
humanities' faith in you as doctors of dental surgery. Remember well, in the 
dignified discharge of your duties, that your patients should have the full benefit 
of that clearness of judgment and skill which you possess. It is then unalienable 

I would impress upon you, now and forever, that your days as students are 
not ended. It is only by constant study that you will be able to keep abreast of 
science, in her rapid strides of progress. You are at present better prepared for 
your profession than is any class which has preceded you. Maintain that scholastic 
distinction you have attained if you would become respected in the eyes of the 
laiety. None respect education more than the uneducated, and the sooner you 
adopt yourselves to modern ideals and methods in your professional behaviour, 
the sooner will you succeed in your chosen profession. Never allow mental stagna- 

THE DENTOS — 1921 

tion to take possession of you, unless you would become a tombstone in the grave- 
yard of self satisfaction. 

Have you benefited by these past four years of self analysis, fellow classmate? 
Do you know now whether or not you will be a success or a failure in your walk of 
life? Confidence in yourself, moderated with a conservative estimate of your own 
ability, will perhaps answer that question best for you. Find the one thing that 
you can do the best and concentrate on that one thing, if you are seeking the best 
path to your goal. Dentistry has its rewards for the worker, and its disappoint- 
ments for the shirker. It offers a broad field for its own peculiar dividends, but 
not for exploitation. If you have an earnest desire to serve, rather than to acquire, 
Dentistry is a profession with but few equals. 

And now we must bid a regretful farewell. To the people of Chicago we extend 
the parting hand with emotions of especial regret. We came quietly into your 
midst, but we celebrate our departure; we came untried and unlearned, but we go 
bearing the marks of discipline and achievement; we came with our careers as students 
scarcely opened, but we go with our careers as students finished. We entered your 
fair city as strangers, in quest of knowledge, friends and home. We have tarried 
among you with pleasure and profit, and can never forget the generous past you 
have played in the forming of our destinies. Tomorrow we shall be scattered as 
chaff before the winds, but we will always look back with fond recollections upon 
your city as a bright sunbeam in the shadows of the past. 

Gentlemen of the Faculty: We are proud to be the first Class to have completed 
our education under your watchful guardianship. The future alone can tell how 
well, how faithfully, you have labored in our behalf. Yours has been the task of 
impressing on our minds the truths that shall develop the truest manhood of each 
nature and of implanting in each brain and heart the germs of knowledge, whose 
perfect growth shall form lives of success, and whose fruitage be the crowning of 
well spent lives. We have always relied on you for counsel and guidance, but 
now we must launch our little craft away from the ship yard, off the stocks, away 
from the master builders' hands. Our own eyes must now watch the compass, 
scan the chart, and hold the rudder. We believe that you have equipped us for 
the task as well as you were able to do. Whatever measure of success we may 
deserve will be to your glorification. To your wisdom and instruction we will 
owe all that we may ever attain, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts 
for your magnificient attempts at smoothing our paths of existence, at making 
our future achievements possible. 

Fellow Classmates: The hardest part of my duty is to bid adieu at this, the end 
of our college days. My heart aches to think that in a few short hours we shall 
walk out of one another's lives, perhaps never to return. It behooves us well 
to step cautiously, now that we must cross the threshold, that we ma)' emerge 
upon the tumultuous whirl and deafening clamor of a preoccupied universe. If 
we are to win we must work. Let us not strive alone for personal acclaim, but 
rather for professional recognition. Others have succeeded, and we should make 


their success our stimulus. But why dwell upon this hackneyed theme when the 
sorrowful pangs of parting are uppermost in the minds of all of us? The solemn 
thought that this may be the last time our dear old class shall meet unbroken, 
grips with clammy fingers the heart strings of each of us, filling us with a dread, 
nameless fear. Let us now forget all trivial wounds that may have been caused 
by petty class rivalries and mourn together at the bier of our strong true love. 
Whether or not fate decrees that we are all able to answer the next roll call of our 
class, we shall at least be forever present and banded together by the soothing 
power of memory. Material things may vanish in the progress of time, but our 
friendships will remain dear to us forever. Comrades of the class of 1924, I bid you 
a fond farewel 

THE DENTOS — 1024 


H. Asher, Class Prophet 

We had just succeeded in extracting a bad tooth and I, in company with several 
of my classmates was discussing the efficiency of gas as an anaesthetic agent. "Just 
for fun," I said laughingly, "I'd like to take gas." 

"All right, hop into the chair," said one of the boys. And not without some 
misgivings I sat down and allowed my fellow students to place the nozzle over 
my face. 

For several moments there was nothing but a steady hum-m-m-m, that seemed 
to throb through my brain; everything seemed hazy; and then suddenly there 
was a crash and with a start I opened my eyes on an amazing scene. About me in 
semicircular fashion were grouped the members of the class of '24, and gradually 
it dawned on me that they were holding a meeting. 

Jerry McLaughlin gravely called the meeting to order. As in the old days, 
silence was immediately obtained. The minutes having been read, and all business 
having been disposed of, Dr. Christo, who was practising in the far off Isle of Cy- 
prus, asked for the floor. 

"I have been so far from the center of things," he said, "that I am anxious to 
know what all the old boys have been doing for these past twenty years. I wonder 
if we couldn't have them tell us something of what has happened to them in the 
long time since we were all handed diplomas on that fateful day in '24." 

The first to arise was our old Class orator, Dr. J. H. Fraleigh, who is conducting 
a home for starving micro-organisms, and is affectionately called the "Father of 
Bacteria". He said, "Eddie Kokot, perceiving the storm approaching, abandoned 
his profession to take up the more lucrative occupation of pedaling bicycles. 
"Alonzo" McPherson has brought dentistry in Jamaica to a very high standard, 
and has contributed much to the health of the island. "Mike" Oppenheim is 
the president of a great dental supply house, which numbers among its distinguished 
board of directors, M. Abrams, D. Agrees, and Al Stearns. After many years of 
hard work and research, Bob Drury has perfected his famous non-removable 
bridge abutment, and it is now in successful use everywhere ." 

Irv Slavin delivered a forceful harangue, in the course of which he said that 
had the dental profession heeded the Dental Cosmos, this thing would never have 
happened. Dr. Slavin is now the business manager of this powerful magazine. 
He furnished the following information concerning our former classmates. Having 
amassed huge fortunes in the course of their careers, R. L. Art, and Al Arenstein 
have formed a trust fund, which is established to help struggling dental students 
in their economic problems. Dick Rea has practically completed plans for a device 
which would fill cavities by radio. Gene Rossen and Morris Schneider, who had 
reorganized the now famous Order of the Fish, back in '24, now number among 
their members such men as George Pike, Charlie Shannon, Sam Goldstein, and 
George Slad. Aurelio Ramos had done so much for the Philippines with his master- 
ful technique that the grateful people erected a monument to him in the public 
square of Manila. 

Dr. James Blair read a radiogram from Drs. Bowyer and Kesling, relayed from 
Tangiers, which is one of their stopping points on their trip around the world. 
He further announced that Harold Leavitt, Sam Karel and Adolph Grindy, had 
consented to be shot up to Mars in a specially constructed shell, to ascertain the 
presence of human life on that planet. From the report which was subsequently 

Pag,- 64 


published in the National Geographic Magazine, several excerpts were read to 

the assembled classmates by Gus Solfronk, "To our huge astonishment, we 

not only found that Mars was populated, but that the human beings on Mars are 
possessed of two complete sets of teeth, one natural, and one composed of artificial 
teeth, to take the place of the natural teeth, when they were decayed. Being so 
well supplied, they found no need for dentists. We thought that, if we could con- 
vince them of their folly, we might look forward to a lucrative practice. What 
was our surprise to find that some of our adventurous contemporaries had already 
established themselves on this amazing planet. A trip down the main street of 
the Martin capital city showed us the names of Rolfe Granath, Irwin Oaf, Louie 
Sharf, Brodie Williams, and James Treacy, all of whom are doing well." 

Bill Lowy was invited by Mac to tell the members about the wonderful denta' 
clinic that has been established in New York City, and which has become so famous 
that it is known all over the world as "The tooth center of America". "Here," 
said Dr. Lowry, "we gather the cream of the Dental profession. For instance, to 
give you an idea of the brilliance of the men with whom I am associated, there are 
Drs. Wm. Brown and David Sackheim in the Orthodontia Department; Drs. H. 
Paule, Julius Toth, and George Westland, doing great work in the Extraction 
Rooms on the Forty-fourth floor, and such experts as Drs. G. Silhan, Al Hoatson, 
Charles Palestrant, and Harold Gillogly in the Crown and Bridge Department. 
In the Plate Department, Robert Reid and Guy Loiselle have been doing such 
marvelous work, that other dentists, deceived by the perfection of the work, have 
been making root fills in the teeth. In addition to our practical work, we maintain 
expensive laboratories for the perfecting of tooth pastes and mouth washes that 
shall carry out our own ideas. Working along these lines, we have such able men 
as Owen Quant, Ernest Penn, Henry Otten and John Titus." 

"Radio" Spickerman was prevailed upon by the chair to recount the history 
of his epoch making expedition to the Samuran Islands, a newly discovered group 
to the north of Batten's Bay in Finland. "Our party," he said, "was delegated 
by the Smithsonian Institute at Washington to undertake this expedition to report 
on the habits of eating in force among these curious people, which led to the total 
absence of teeth in all the inhabitants. To my huge delight and surprise, I found 
that my fellow-voyagers were all Chicago men, and, what was more curious, that 
they were all my former classmates. They were William E. Redli;h, Bert Slater, 
Irving C. Schur, Glen E. Clark and Earl F. Christie. Our trip was well worth 
while in every way. We found the Samurans to be perfectly normal people in 
every way, but for their teeth, as had been recorded in the log of Admiral Williams 
in his report of February, 1925. A thorough investigation of their habits was made 
with this result. The natives were entirely dependent for their food on a curious 
plant, of spongy structure, that grew on their shores, and to which they gave the 
name of "goozis". So soft was this plant, and so readily did the saliva reduce it 
to a digestible state, that the teeth were really unnecessary, and became atrophied 
through centuries of disuse. The complete reports of this expedition, with complete 
annotations by Dr. Louis J. Pavlicek, are now in the archives of the institute." 
He sat down amidst tremendous applause. 

Roy Barker asked permission to tell the assembly about his new gown for the 
dental profession, which, he maintains, will never fray at the collar. They will 
shortly be on sale at all leading stores, he said, including Mandel Brothers. Dale 
Fitz-Henry modestly acknowledged the authorship of a treatise entitled "Proper 
Haircuts as a Professional Asset to Dentists", which enjoyed a wide sale. Charles 
Lavin, not to be outdone in authorship, expressed his gratification at being the 
writer of a popular song success entitled "There's A Dark Cloud Behind Every 
Silver Lining". John Brady proudly reported that he had made a neat fortune 

Page 6s 


from the sale of his "No-doze Tablets", a compound intended to keep students 
awake during classes. Frank Enck passed around samples of a new ink which he 
has recently marketed and which he calls "Red Enck s Red Enck". Suddenly 
Jerry McLaughlin, with a laugh, pointed to Louis Wagner, who, sure enou 
was discovered in a corner, taking down the conversation in his note book, and 
wagging his head at the various remarks made by the speakers. When the laughter 
subsided, Alex. Lerner forcefullv maintained his theory put forth in 1922, that 
beans are an ideal bacterial cultural medium. He has at last perfected his own 
emulsion of bean extract. Frank Biedka brought to the attention of those present 
the fact that he has become interested in the interior decoration of dental offices. 
He finds his height a distinct advantage in painting ceilings without the use of a 

At this point, William Cody asked permission to recount the story of the 
famous Tortley case of a few years back, in which several members of the Class of 
'24, had figured prominently. "As you remember", said Bill, "Tortley, a coffee 
bootlegger (coffee having been constitutionally prohibited some time ago), had 
killed Jamieson, an accomplice, after a quarrel. Being a very clever, as well as 
ruthless, character, he had bribed a dentist who was not bothered overmuch by 
his conscience to remove all the man's teeth, and cleverly insert others in their 
places, in order to completely hide his victim's identity. At the trial, which com- 
manded nation-wide interest, the dental profession was much in the limelight. 
Experts testified pro and con. Among the experts called by the state at that time 
were Drs. Neal Desenis, Walter Loefner, Mahlon Peterson, Samuel Greenberg 
and Frank Leiner, while the defense produced such famous witnesses as Drs. Ellis 
Ibbotson, Leland Meder, Roy Thesen and Frank Watson. Tortley was finally 
convicted by the state's discovery of a delicate operation which had been performed 
on the dead man's palate. Knowing that there were only a few men in the city 
capable of performing so delicate an operation, investigation brought out the fact 
that Dr. Edward DeKoven had performed just such an operation some time back 
on a man answering to the general description of the murdered man. The identi- 
fication thus completed, the guilty man was doomed." William Coughlin reminded 
the members present that at the time, Dr. DeKoven had remarked that but for 
the efficient recording system which Dr. Coughlin had given to the dental profession, 
he would not have been able to make the identification. 

John Zimmerman was asked to give details of his famous Drillem and Fillem 
Dental Factory. John, because of his quantity production methods, has been dub- 
bed the Ford of the dental profession. He outlined the operation of his plant as 
follows. The patient travels through the plant on a conveyer, stopping at each 
operator for a few moments while a small operation is performed, and then he is 
shot on to the next one for another operation. It was John's boast, that a patient 
coming into the factory on the first floor, with a ruined set of teeth, is shot out on 
the fifth floor, three hours later, prepared to eat sugar coated carpet tacks, or 
hard boiled fly-paper. The patient is first examined by means of a camera invented 
by Harry Solomon and Chester Fillinger, which fits over the patient's face and 
snaps every tooth in one operation. The photograph thus secured is immediately 
diagnosed by John Brennan and Allen G. Orendorff who pass their report and the 
patient onto the Prophylaxis Department, where Daniel Kreger and William 
Lemaster are in charge. Here a small machine on the principle of the vacuum 
cleaner is placed in the patient's mouth, and, upon suction being applied, all 
calculus is immediately removed. At the next stop, Bob Miller and Franklin E. 
Bay take the patient under their wings. Here is presented a beautiful and pathetic 
picture. As the class remembers, James Fraleigh has established a home for 
bacteria, where he treats the little creatures with utmost kindness. Although 


T H E D 10 X T O S — 1 9 2 4 



they have formerly been vicious and harmful bacteria, under the kind treatment of 
Dr. Fraleigh their natures have undergone a complete change. When the good 
Dr. Fraleigh is thoroughly convinced that a batch of the bacteria have experienced 
a change of heart, he sends them to John's factory. Bob then removes several 
million of them from a bottle, and shows them the cavities in the patient's teeth. 
Then he whsipers "Attaboy, Fido", and the bacteria, in sheer gratitude for their 
wonderful treatment by Dr. Fraleigh, rush into the cavities, and, instead of destroy- 
ing the teeth, prepare the cavities for filling. For about four minutes they rush 
about in the patient's mouth, and then emerge. The cavities are found to be 
perfectly prepared, with margins beautifully beveled, and so forth. Frank Hynous 
has discovered that it is possible to saturate certain bacteria with a plastic gold, 
which has been developed under the research work of Drs. James Dillon, Sam Gold- 
stein, and Joseph Martin. At the next stop in the Drillem and Fillem factory, 
Drs. Robert McElroy and John Griffin hold sway. They hold in leash millions of 
the gold-saturated bacteria, and at the critical moment they release them into the 
prepared cavities. Upon arrival in the cavities, these savage bacteria (who have 
not had the benefit of Dr. Fraleigh's kindness) see the work of their milder relatives, 
and, hurt that a bacterium would sink so low, sit down and cry. Their golden tears 
fill the cavities. The patient is then shifted to the Polishing Department. Here 
Drs. Irving Rothenberg and Harry Birkett handle the patient. Drs. Robert 
Anthony and Levi Johnson have invented a sort of snowshoe which fits over the 
feet of bacteria. Here again Faleigh's bacteria are used. The snowshoes are fitted 
to their feet, and they are released into the mouth. Anxious to see what work 
their brethen have done, they walk all over the mouth and look everywhere. The 
shoes were made with slight projections, and the constant sliding over the surfaces 
of the fillings soon produce a high polish. If the patient needs plates, he is sent 
to the Plate Department which is controlled by Merrill Weismiller and Clement 
Rybacek. Bridges are made last, because, as Dr. Zimmerman often has said, he 
does not believe in crossing his bridges until he comes to them. This department 
is under the management of Harry Stratton and Frank Vitullo. 

Harold Schwartz confessed that he has long been masquerading under the 
name of "Saxo", and that he has made a fortune in the orchestra game, although 
still conducting a dental office. 

Dr. E. W. Karst, with a grave expression on his face asked for the floor. On 
being recognized he said, "Never before in the history of the universe has such 
an overwhelming cataclysm threatened the members of the dental profession. 
Dr. L. Knospe, in his South Chicago Laboratories, has invented a plan whereby 
it will be unnecessary for human beings to eat. All a man has to do is to take as 
many calories of condensed energy a day as he thinks he needs. This energy comes 
in the form of capsules, fresh daily to all parts of the world from the Knospe Labora- 
tories. Once man ceases to take food, dental decay and all associated ills auto- 
matically stop. In other words, there will be but little use for the dentist." Dr. 
Karst sat down amidst deep silence. 

Dr. William Shippee, at this time, moved to adjourn the meeting until the 
following day, and Dr. Samuel Ruttenberg invited the members to take part in 
a clinic to be held at the New Era School of Dentistry, which he owns in conjunction 
with Boyd Stark and Earl Dohner. 

The next day many members of the convention visited the school. They 
were agreeably surprised when Dr. Ruttenberg introduced them to John Stryker, 
who is Dean of the School, and who took charge of the party as they went through 
the school buildings. In the examination room they found Drs. Isadore Shapiro 
and Leroy Van Note, inspecting the student's efforts. The visitors were just in 
time to hear a lecture by Dr. Michael Tilka, who is in charge of the operative work, 



on the use of the Vanrell carver in the making of plastic gold fillings. Several 
minutes after the class had taken their seats, the visitors were greatly surprised 
to see Lionel Widmeyer come in with a bunch of keys hanging at his side and 
proceed to take the roll. They then went upstairs to the research laboratories, 
where they found Dr. Daniel Beynon bent over his test tubes. Suddenly he jumped 
to his feet. "Gentlemen," he cried, "Knospe is baffled. I have found the answer 
to his vile propoganda. His tablets will eventually kill off the human race unless 
he is stopped. M}' experiments conclusively show that his tablets do not contain 
the proper ingredients for prolonged human existence." 

The delighted dentists gathered in a group to discuss this new phase of the 
situation. It was agreed that several of their number were to go to Washington 
to lay before Congress the danger of the situation. The men, picked on the basis 
of their performance in the profession, were Philip Boyd, Arnold Wagner, Paul 
Reynolds, George Warren, Elmer Wilmoth, and Edwin Vanoucek. 

At the resumption of the regular meeting on the next day, there was much 
discussion on the new turn of events. In the midst of the proceedings, a radiogram 
came in from Washington, announcing that the committee had achieved its purpose 
and that Knospe's tablets would no longer be manufactured. There was great 
cheering and joy among the now happy dentists. 

Suddenly the cheering and shouting grew strangely jumbled in my ears until 
the sounds resembled nothing but a deep steady roar. Again I sensed the hum-m-m 
of some gigantic motor throbbing in my brain. Something snapped! I seemed 
to have arisen from a great darkness, a very deep sleep. I looked around. "Well," 
said one of the boys laughing, "how did you like the gas?" 

I shook my head. "Wow!" I said, "Was that only a dream? No more for me." 


Some studies are serious; 
Some make us smile. 
But whatever the studying, 
It's always worth while. 
If it brings kindly deeds, 
In a real hearty way, 
Like the wishes I'm speeding 
For Seniors' graduation day. 

— Geo. I. Blazis.

THE DENTOS — 1924 


(With apologies to "Rudy"). 

For years Rudy, able salesman of C. L. Frame & Co., firmly refused to endorse 
the antiquated proverb — "Uneasy lies the tooth that wears a crown." When 
dentistry was in its infancy, Rudy admitted the saying might have possessed some 
potency, but in view of the fact that he had used used 18 carat teeth for many 
years with perfect satisfaction, he always contended that the proverb is today a 
pure anachronism. 

Such remained his firm conviction, until a few days ago, when he sat down 
at Dudley's for lunch. He had just gotten safely around the first bend in a crescent 
roll and was taking the rise on the other side, when suddenly he bit into something 
that led him to think that he had asked for bread and received stone. Further 
investigation, however, disclosed the fact that the offending object was a Midas 
Molar of graceful but unappetizing proportions. 

With the tooth in his hand and battle in his eye, Rudy reached Dudley in three 
jumps. "Say," he shouted, holding out the dental dainty, "I know you claim to 
have toothsome food, but these rolls of yours are altogether too toothsome. I 
don't mind your baker gnashing his teeth and rolling his eyes, provided he doesn't 
mix the teeth with the rolls. Does he want me to have gnawing pains in my 
stomach all day?" 

Mr. Dudley bottled his rising indignation at this attack on his establishment and 
kept cool. "Perhaps the baker is not to blame," he suggested soothingly. "Possib- 
ly the mowing machine that cut the wheat had a gold tooth." 

"Say no mower," replied Rudy, "I know better. And let me tell you, further- 
more, that I don't buy rolls for other people to sink their teeth into. Take back 
your gold! I'm through eating for the day." Slamming the brilliant biter on the 
counter, Rudy stalked out. 

To avoid the seasick feeling every time Rudy saw some one in a white gown, 
he sought the soothing depths of the poolroom on Van Buren Street. Here he 
joined some of the fellows from school, who had witnessed the episode at Dudley's 
and also decided they weren't hungry any more. 

"Say Rudy," suggested one of the boys hopefully, "mightn't that have been 
one of your own teeth? Got any crowns?" 

"Sure I got crowns," assented Rudy, "but I don't scatter them through my 
food when I eat. Don't you suppose I'd know it if one of my own teeth came out? 
Come on, let's play pool. I don't want to think about teeth." 

A short time later, Rudy had to make a three cushion shot to make the eighth 
ball. Twisting his tongue in his mouth and aiming carefully, he made the difficult 
shot, but, instead of appearing elated, his face assumed a strangely thoughtful 
expression, as he ruminatingly poked his tongue into his cheek. Then he suddenly 
handed his cue to a bystander, and said, "Finish the game for me, will you'? I 
got to hurry back." A moment later, he furtively made his way back to Dudley's. 

"Say, Mr. Dudley," he remarked, "I want to pay for that lunch that I left 
this noon. You know that gold tooth mine I worked?" 

"Yes," answered Dudley expectantly. 

"Well it was" — added Rudy. 

"Was what?" 

"Mine. I'd like it back, please." 

"Oh, Porcelena," called Dudley, to one of the counter hands, "change the price 
list back to normal again; the gentleman paid for his lunch."

Out of the mouths of babes, come the decidious teeth, 
After they've served their purpose well, over the wide world's heath, 
Out, to make room for the permanent set, out, with a wisely stealth 
Out for somebody's comfort and place, out, to maintain one's health. 

Now, in the years of Puberty, Childhood's memories past, 
Cometh a God-Given set of good teeth, Nature decrees that they last. 
Firmly and cleanly they rear from the arch, destined to do a good work, 
Destined to safeguard the life of each one when all other functions shirk. 

Made as they are of material things, all teeth are wont to decay. 
Guard them as well as you're able my lad, cleanse them each night and day. 
For, if you slight them and don't do your bit, Nature right soon will object; 
Trouble, discomfort and pain you'll then have, teeth have the power to infect. 

If, when you've tried to maintain in your mouth, organs of sound dentition, 
Caries invades them and cause them harm, look to your mode of nutrition. 
Maybe you're diet's not all it should be, perchance yours are doomed to be ill. 
Then you should go to the dentist, my lad, he will the turmoil still. 

A Dentist is made to guard health for you, lad, as well as the medical man, 
His is an object to cure oral ills; he'll do just as much as he can. 
Call on him then for your own sake my lad. He is here to palliate pain. 
'Tis his object in life to make bad teeth be good, to make good ones be bad but in

Let me be a little kinder, 

Let me be a little blinder. 

To the world's faults and bitterness. 

Let me be a little gentler — 

Make my efforts still more tender — 

While I relieve pain and distress.

That each year may find me farther 

On the road leading to Success.

Have you ever explored the mysteries of some dark, foreboding cave? Do 
you remember how you hesitated at its mouth, timorously reluctant about making 
the first step into the dim interior? Do you recall how, after summoning all your 
courage, you cautiously ventured forth into the strangeness of that interior? And 
then, after groping about cautiously, feeling your way forward bit by bit, you 
suddenly came upon an unexpected exit and were dazzled by the sudden burst of 
sunshine which greeted you as you emerged joyously into the welcome light of 
day, do you recall just how relieved you felt, how happy you were to have emerged 
triumphant from your rather exciting adventure? If you do, you realize just 
about how we members of the class of 1924 feel, at this, the completion of our 
college course. 


There was a young man named Nick; 
Of the women in town he'd his pick.

Until he got hit with a brick.

I lived upon your lips, 

And yet I knew

Was thrilling you.

Where glories pass; 

And I was dreaming of 
Another lass.

"He told me," said the modest maid, 

"I was the pearl of pearls. 

My charms displayed would overshade 

Ten thousand other girls 

He vowed I was his cherished prize, 

His goddess, his delight, 

He praised my eyes more blue than skies, 

Their glance than gems more bright. 

He swore gold glittered in my hair; 

No word could tell my worth. 

He called me fair beyond compare 

With anything on earth." 

"And trust you," asked the matron, wise, 

"In what he says to you?" 

From the maid's eyes shone sweet surprise 

"Of course, I know it's true." 


THE 23 rd PSALM 

Dr. Puterbaugh is my Prof., 

I shall not deny it. 

He maketh me to learn long prescriptions; 

He filleth my head with decoctions; 

He worked my brains. 

He keepeth me in after class for my own sake. 

Yea, tho' I study from daylight to darkness, 

I shall know no more. 

For I cannot learn diseases; they annoy me. 

He prepareth a prescription for me in the presence of my classmates. 

He announceth me the worst of all. 

My mind refuseth to work. 

Surely work and study must follow me all the days of my life; 

And I shall in the Therapeutics class, forever be.

Never was man happier than I! Today is rent day and last night I lost a little 
sum at a poker game. Yesterday the baby developed the measles. Friend wife 
ordered three new hats at thirty per, and the milliner will not wait. The grocer 
and milkman are clamoring at the back door. 

Today is Friday the Thirteenth and' we have sole for lunch. I detest fish, 
most especially sole. 

I have a hell of a cold which prevented my putting through an important 
deal last week. I voted Wet and the Prohibes won out. 

Notwithstanding, all these tribulations I am happy — ridiculously, exuberantly 

My mother-in-law has lock-jaw! 

Gillogly, '24. 


He's teaching her arithmetic, 

Because that is his mission; 
He kissed her once, he kissed her twice, 

And said, "Now, that's addition". 

And as he added smack by smack 

In silent satisfaction, 
She sweetly gave his kisses back 

And said, "Now, that's subtraction". 

Then he kissed her and she kissed him 

Without an explanation; 
They both together smiled and said, 

"Now, that's multiplication." 

But Dad appeared upon the scene, 

And made a quick decision; 
He kicked the lad three blocks away, 

And said, "Now, that's division". 

Gillogly, '24. 


The Woman's Civic Club met last Wednesday afternoon at Airs. Gabfest's 
palatial gossip parlors. Tea and Talk was served and an hour pleasantly spent. 

Seven innocent girls were ruined; three wives were slandered, and four husbands 
were given their first reading. All departed declaring the new "young one" 
across the way dressed too well for the salary she receives at Philipsborn's.

Sooner or later 

You'll forget 
All you're saying tonight, 

And yet — 

"Tis sweet for the stars to kiss the sea, 
But not half so sweet as your kissing me. 
It doesn't mean a thing I know, 
But I like to hear your Line, and so — 
The moonlit night has a thousands charms 
As I lie content in your warm young arms. 

Kiss my fingers, my hair, my eyes, 
Whisper a thousand precious lies. 
Kiss my neck, my arms, and then 
Kiss my trembling lips again. 
Love me, hold me, just tonight, 
'Til the stars are turning white. 

Sooner or later 

You'll forget 
All you're saying tonight, 

And yet — 

Never mind 

The Bye-and-bye, 

Later — 
So will I.

He parks around the drug store. 

He's the soda-sucking kid. 
He raves about his "wimin" 

And the things that Katy did. 

His lid is crushed and bent to fit. 

He parks it on his nose. 
He thinks he's old "Kid-knock-'em-dead" 

That sets the fad in clothes. 

He calls his Camels "Desert pups", 
And thinks he's quite the oil, 

He struts around like Rudolph, 

And his neck is thick with soil. 

You've heard this little raving, 

And it sounds like storm and strife; 

But breeze around your own home town, 
And you'll find it true to life.

The truest friends must part, they say; 
The fondest hearts must sever; 
But friendship's bonds may last for aye, 
And mem'ry live forever. 

Then "fare you well" — this parting's pain 
To those whom Fate must sever. 
I only say "Good-bye" again, 
And trust 'tis not forever.

This, to the demonstrators, whom we all know as our friends; 

To those who promise least of all, and are truest in the end. 

No medals or decorations may mark them as they go; 

But how their willing aid does help when trouble-tempests blow. 

They may not lecture from the pit, with knowledge broad and wide, 

But when everything looks dark and gloomy, we find them at our side; 

Let's thank them, then, with a sincere and honest toast; 

And let them know, they're our friends when friends are neede most. 

O. X. Q. 


THE DENTOS — 1924 


Many years you have been laboring 

O'er school books by the score, 

Through the grades, high school and college; 

But your school days now are o'er. 

You've had trials, examinations. 

These will trouble you no more. 

Our best wishes go out to you, 

Good Old Class of '24. 

You have vaulted all the hurdles, 
Often burned the midnight oil; 
You've made numbers of impressions, 
And plugged in many a foil. 
But now you're leaving the college, 
To practice dentistry's lore; 
God-speed you in the profession. 
Good Old Class of '24. 

The Juniors here are all your friends; 

Of this fact we assure you. 

Your friendship we will ever prize; 

You've been loyal, staunch, and true. 

In future years, our college days 

In memory we'll all live o'er. 

The Juniors wish you "best o' luck" 

Good Old Class of '24.

Again the Juniors took the lead and established an event that should not die 
with the present class, but continue until it becomes one of the traditions of our 
school. We trust not only that each succeeding Junior Class will follow our ex- 
ample, but also that such an event may become one of the most pleasant remem- 
brances for each class as it slowly travels up the hard road which leads to gradu- 

It goes without saying that the first annual class dance of the Junior Class 
held in the beautiful Red Room of the Hotel La Salle, on the night of December 
tenth, 1923, was very successful. Evidence of this is the fact that, although the 
dancing was to continue only from eight to midnight, the time was extended by 
popular demand until one o'clock. The music, furnished by the Paul Beesy 
Orchestra, assisted by Walter Ford, was of the best, and each selection was encored 
several times. Invitations were issued to the members of the Junior Class, to 
members of the Faculty, and also to a few guests. Everyone present entered 
into the spirit of the affair, and at the close of the evening, regretted that the time 
had passed too quickly. 

Credit is due to the different committees for their untiring efforts to make 
the dance the success that it was. The entertainment committee was composed 
of Johnson, Pittman, and Helmey; the receiving committee had as its members 
"Pop" Meyers and Yager; and the finance committee was made up of Petty, 
Montgomery, Kellner, and Helmy. 

There can be little doubt but that in the years to come when the members 
of the class shall have scattered to the four ends of the country, it will be with 
pleasure that each will look back upon this night as one of the outstanding events 
of his life at the C. C. D. S., our Alma Mater. 

E. B. Rosseau. 

On April 28, 1924, the Junior Class inaugurated a new custom in the school 
by giving a "Prom" for the Senior Class. The "Prom" was held at the Chez 
Pierre Club on North Michigan Avenue. Everyone present reported that a very 
pleasant evening was enjoyed.

Since the beginning of time man has had a tendency to organize into groups, 
clans, tribes, clubs and various other associations. These associations from time 
immemorial, have all had similar aims in view. They have all been organized 
for the purpose of promoting mutual assistance and protection, or of perpetuating 
some art or science. 

The dental practitioners of today are likewise banded together in various 
societies for the purposeof benefitting and advancing their profession. This is 
accomplished chiefly by an exchange of ideas concerning recent discoveries and 
by the instruction of the members so that they can serve the public with the 
most advanced systems of technic. 

It was with this thought in mind that the faculty suggested that some training 
should be offered that would, in some degree give us an insight into the working 
of such a society. The idea, therefore, was put into effect in the Seminar of the 
Junior class during the past semester; and the way in which it was received and 
the success of the enterprise speak well for the saneness of the plan. 

And so, out of a restless mob of students arose "The Philosophian Society". 
The constitution and by-laws were drawn up by the students and the meetings 
were conducted by members of the class. The attitude assumed was that we were 
a group of practitioners associated for the purpose of the philosophical advance- 
ment of dentistry and with the customary social and scientific features to assist 
in holding interest in the society. 

The interest displayed was highly gratifying, for the juniors realized that 
there was presented to them an opportunity of learning to think while addressing 
an organization, and to express their thoughts in a logical and interesting manner. 
Practically all of the "Doctors" had a chance to address the society on some 
particular subject of their own choosing. Valuable instructions- in rules of order 
and methods of conducting a meeting were presented. During the course of one 
of these meetings a member was charged with malpractice, and the society arranged 
to conduct an investigation in order to ascertain whether or not the member 
should be retained. An intensely interesting mock trial was held, which gave 
numerous members an opportunity of exercising their power to coordinate thought 
and speech. In justice to those boys we wish to say that they did extremely 
well. The speeches of the trial being extemporaneous, the participants were 
obliged to use their wits so as to hold up their side of the argument. After the 
trial, the Professor wishing to completely exonerate the defendant, appointed 
him to preside at the following meeting. 

We wish to congratulate the faculty for offering such a course. We feel that 
much good was derived from our experience, and we wish, therefore, to recommend 
this ccurse to the on-coming classes, trusting that they will take kindly to the plan.

THE D E N T () S — 1 9 2 4 


Did you ever take your pencil and figure out what your dental education is 
actually costing you, or your parents? Perhaps a few figures would be of interest 
to you. 

Assuming an average figure for board and lodging, books, supplies, and tuition, 
the total cost for a school year for each student is about seven hundred and twenty 
dollars. As a matter of fact, most of us spen more than this amount, but for the 
sake of argument let us use this figure. There are approximately twelve hundred 
hours of school each year, which means that the cost is about sixty cents an hour, 
or one cent a minute for e.ach student. Every minute that is wasted represents 
an outlay of one cent in cash; consequently, if one person causes a minute's in- 
terruption in a class of one hundred, he wastes one dollar; ten minutes, ten dollars 

Are we, then, taking full advantage of the opportunities that have been made 
available for us through our own efforts, or through the sacrifices of our parents, 
or both? 

With these facts in mind it behooves all of us to make the utmost use of our 
time and to have a full realization of the necessity for close application to the 
business at hand — namely, the securing of a dental education. 

J. Fung, '25.

THE DENT OS — 1924 

Enquiring student: "Why did you become a tramp?" 

Hector: "It was the doctor's orders. He told me to walk after every meal. 
I've been walking ever since." 

How many of you remember how you felt at school January 2nd? There 
seemed to be quite a few "dead soldiers" around that day. 

Did you hear how many times Montgomery and "Pop" Meyers tried to 
make a plate for "baldy" before they finally got one to stay in place? Anyway 
it was an unlucky number. 

Peters was down in Clev. -Dent's one afternoon (as usual), and he was 'talking 
(as usual) about his experiences with his first root fill. He was wondering what 
was meant by "chain of asepsis". Peterson spoke up, saying, "It is a German 
silver chain used to put around a patient's neck when doing root fill". 

Learn to anneal gold foil from the seniors. 

One "wise" senior advised a junior to do it this way: "Heat the foil in a 
flame to red heat, then dip it in cold water." 

(Don't let them take advantage of your innocence, boys.) 

Dr. Suddarth, quizzing "Pop" Meyers:

I'm out in patience, money, temper, rubber-dam, Dudleyology, and disap- 
pointments. I'm not out in points, points, points. 

Wonder if P. G. remembers way back when watermelons were ripe "down 
on the Wabash", and there was a telltale track of mule hoof-prints straight to 
his papa's barnyard. I'll bet the gluteal region was examined by percussion on 
that particular event. 

One of our prominent dentists says that he ascribes his success in dentistry 
to his early training with L & B root files and the Formo-cresol bottle. 

Who belongs to these handles? "Three Point"; "Dean of Women"; "Uncle 
Charlie"; "Joe Blow"; "Sheik"; " Sun-flower"; "Alice"; "Auntie Sue"; "Whop"; 
"Pute"; "Mac"; "Soap"; "Grand-pa". 


I do not like 
This three-point-man; . 
So, to six sheet foils 
I've tied the can. 


My pet peeve is, after standing at the sterile tray window for twenty minutes, 
waiting for service, to have the nurse in charge happen to think she needs a Hershey 
bar from Dudley's. 

Or, said pet peeve might be, the standing in line with a candidate for an X-ray 
from 4:40 p. m. to 4:55 p. m. and then find out that we're too late. 

Those gowns have to be changed and those noses have to be powdered in 
time so that the time clock can be punched at 5 p. m. sharp. 

Did you ever see a demonstrator take the kinks out of a smooth broach with 
his fingers? Sure, so have I. 

How long were you in finding out that a high polish covers a multitude of sins? 


And as I bring this to a close 
I frankly must confess, 
That no one herein shot at knows, 
Or the author's name can guess.

We understand, although there is no official confirmation, that it is rumored 
in the basement: 

That tuition will be raised to #300.00 next year. 

That next year some in our class will have to look for some other school, such 
as Kansas City. 

That some of the fellows have been singing the "Kansas City Blues". 

That some of the class will be in the seminar class next year; because they 
like the subject so well. 

That when we graduate from this school, the State Board will say that we 
will not have to take their examinations to practice in the state. 

That the instructors are going to get hard boiled next year. 

That next year, we are not going to do aiw "root fill". 

That Dr. Boulger has invented some new method of taking care of this work. 

That Buky has been doing some private tutoring in plate work for the benefit 
of his classmates, and that he has been offered a high position in this department 
at school. 


Dr. Puterbaugh: "If a sinus is caused by systemic trouble, where would 
it likely be?" 

Yager: "In the abdomen." 

Dr. Puterbaugh: "Yes, in the palate." 

A patient had a growth on the gum tissue and Dr. Puterbaugh asked, "what 
might it be?" 

No one spoke for a while. Then Rief spoke up. "It might be proliferation 
of the gum tissue." 

In the clinic while Dr. Puterbaugh was extracting an impacted cuspid tooth 
Moroney said, "Gee, I'd hate to fill the canal in that tooth." 

After Dr. Grisamore had finished his lecture in orthodontia, he made an an- 
nouncement to the effect that Dr. Hall would not be there to lecture the next 
hour. All the fellows began clapping and yelling. Dr. Grisamore seemed rather 
amused and asked, "Why all the clapping for Dr. Hall? You don't seem to treat 
me that way." Some student piped out, "Stay away sometimes, and we will." 



THE DKNTOS — 1924 

Scientists have recently made the great discovery that it was not an apple 
which caused all the trouble in the garden of Eden, but rather a green pear (pair).

Johnny socked a little foil, from nine until eleven. 

He did his best to get his points, and merited a seven. 

Now, every time when Johnny socks a foil he uses care 

And mallets well the bits of gold with concentrated air — 

'Cause Johnny knows, to make the grade, he'll need good condensation 

A cavity, and polish too, for mutual preservation. 



P*V W 



Now is the time when men must cough, 
Who rashly left their heavies off; 
Their noses run; their eyes are red; 
They shiver, shake and go to bed. 

They are the ones who dared to freeze 
In low-cut brogues and B. V. D.'s. 
They sneered at other cautious gents, 
And swore the ladies had more sense. 

The)' laughed at vests and woolen hose, 
But now they wipe a fevered nose, 
And view the world through bleary eyes — 
These hardy, foolish, fresh air guys. 

The girls may wear whate'er they please, 
And never even stop to sneeze. 
But, men, if we take off our hats, 
Lumbago hits us in the slats. 

We cannot dress in garments thin 
When winter's icy blasts begin; 
But, girls are made of sterner stuff; 
The}- cover their ears and that's enough.

Before I entered this vale of hopes 
Mingled with both joys and fears, 
The name Hyman was a part of me 

For nigh unto a score of years. 

When as a kid I matched for marbles, 
Or played "it" and "run sheep run", 
No one minded the name Hyman 
Or thought it an occasion for fun. 

No sooner had I entered this college, 

Than my name was the subject for glee; 

Dr. Kendall calls, "Hyman", stopped and grinned, 

And I knew something was in store for me. 

"Your parents knew little Anatomy 
When they gave you that appellation." 
At once the whole class roared in glee, 
Though few saw the application. 

The name Hyman may have suited when young, 
When I played indoor in the alley, 
But what can I do when those all around me 
Know the different parts of Anatomy. 

So to bring peace, comfort and salvation, 
I've decided to stick to Anatomy; 
And from now on my name is Howard, 
But don't stop calling me "Hymie".

Four score and seven years ago our Doctors brought forth upon this continent 
a new profession, conceived in Dentistry, and dedicated to the proposition that 
all teeth are subject to decay. 

Now we are engaged in a great college career, testing whether that profession 
so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met in a great college of 
that profession. We have come to dedicate a portion of that college as a final 
place of preparation for those who here spend their four years that teeth might 
live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. 

But in a larger sense, we can dedicate, we can consecrate, we can hallow this 
profession. The brave Dentists, living and dead, who struggled here, have not 
consecrated it above our power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor 
long remember what we do' here; but it can never forget what we do in our post 
college career. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated to the unfinished 
work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather 
for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us, — that from 
these honored dentists we take increased devotion to that cause for which they 
gave the last full measure of devotion, — that we here highly resolve that these 
dentists shall not have labored in vain, that this profession, under God, shall 
have a greater sphere of advancement, and that this profession of the people, by 
the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.

THE DENT OS — 1924 


The two years that have passed since we entered C. C. D. S., to prepare our- 
selves for life's battles, and to fit ourselves to be men, have passed more rapidly 
than we imagined they would that October evening of 1922, when first we were 
introduced to C. C. D. S. Then, looking ahead, the Junior year and the Infirmary 
seemed so far off that it was difficult for us to realize that some day we, too, should 
be Juniors and should try our hand in the Infirmary. 

We could not then appreciate gold inlays, but we did know about a certain 
gold outlay for books and instruments. Crowns were something for kings to wear; 
bridges — well we knew there were many of them to be crossed; Orthodontia was 
as intelligible to us as Mah Jongg is to the average beginner. The name of Mueller 
was mentioned in a low and trembling voice; while only the bravest dared speak 
the name of Watt. When the name of Zoethout was heard, many a man spent 
a sleepless night, tossing and tumbling around with turtles, frogs, dogs, and little 
written quizzes. 

With Amylopsin, Hemorrhages, Rigor Mortis and the ductless glands conquered 
we have taken heart. The names which previously were mentioned only in dark 
cellars are now mentioned in public places by the most timid. In a few more 
weeks Drs. Watt, and Mueller will have given us the final polish, and we shall 
then be able to demonstrate our skill on living patients. 

In scholarship and workmanship the class of 1926 is unexcelled. We offer no 
apologies for the class entertainments, for they are of the best. Two short years 
remain between us and graduation. May the achievements of the past be fore- 
runners of even greater and better things in the coming years. May our slogan 
ever be: "For God, for C. C. D. S., and for 1926." 

H. H. MacWithey, Class President. 


Slowly, well nigh imperceptible, the)' crept along cautiously. They avoided 
all obstacles, shrinking from all passersby. Occasionally she would look at him 
with the greatest of trust, but never did they so much as utter a word. Both were 
trembling. She clung to him for protection, and he, in turn, grasped her tightly 
as they moved on. Beads of perspiration stood out on his brow, and yet they 
plodded on steadily, relentlessly. Then, without warning, their quivering ceased, 
and they halted. 

The dance had come to an end.

THE DEXTOS — 1924 


R . O . 

As we look back on our past lives, and think of all the good times we missed 
when we were Freshmen, because we had the idea that study was a necessary 
part of our college education, we run our fingers through our thinning hair, gnash 
our premolars and bewail our foolhardiness as we think of our misspent youth. 

Back in those good old days when we took ourselves and everyone else seriously 
and actually had the idea that it made some difference whether we knew how many 
bones there are in our head, we were immensely pleased with ourselves to have 
reached to such heights as to be really and truly "sure-'nough" members of our 
professional body known as Chicago College of Dental Surgery. Now we know 
that Drs. Job and Fouser were only kidding when they talked about the number 
of bones in the head, because we know positively that there is only one, and that 
comprises the whole space from the external auditory meatus north, and we have 
members in our class that will effectually prove beyond any doubt that this is not 
merely a theory. 

Speaking of theories we have always been inclined to agree with Dr. Kendall 
in his concerning evolution. For the benefit of Freshmen who have not yet learned 
it and upper classmen who have forgotten it (though how could one forget it who 
is a member of the Class of May 1926), we will explain that Kendall got the idea, 
probably while shaving or brushing his hair or tying his necktie. As we have 
stated before, he got his idea while he was tying his tie or was otherwise engaged 
in looking into his mirror. Of course, if he was the type of married man who has 
to have his tie adjusted by his better half, it was probably not at the time of having 
neckwear adjusted, but even at that it is not entirely impossible. 

We are tempted to quote the little girl who, in a composition on the subject, 
said, "Both man and woman sprang from the moneky, but man sprang the farth- 
est." She undoubtedly had Dr. Fink for a teacher. (You are perfectly welcome 
Dr. F., just a little mark of appreciation for passing us in Pathology). One moment, 
please, while we go down to Dudley's. 

There are many ways of looking at the Kendall Theory of Evolution and it 
would be of interest if all of us could pay a visit to the monkey house at Lincoln 
Park. It would be just like looking into our past. 

We often wonder if it would not have been just as well if we had not taken the 
trouble to evolute. How much more convenient it would be for us when the 
auditorium is crowded if we could just wrap our tails around the balcony rail, 
thus being out of the way and not blocking the doorways. At such times there 
would be a sign out bearing the legend, "H. R. 0.", meaning, of course, hanging 
room only. 

There are some reasons, however, why it is just as well that we are not blessed 
with these appendages, because, when the circus comes to town, Kenneth Mosley 
would undoubtedly, in order the better to view the parade, run up a telegraph 
pole and try to hang by his tail from a live wire. 

As a parting word to the Freshmen, let us urge upon you the following advice: 

Don't let your studies interfere with your College education. 

\ our bluff will be called once in a while, but, on the whole, it pays to bluff — 
if it isn't called too often. 

What's the use of studying Physiology and learning about your heart when 
you don't have one if you are a girl, and somebody else has stolen it if you are a 

Comparative Dental Anatomy is a dead subject. Don't dig it up. It's teeth 
have a ghastly sound. 

A date tonight is worth two next week. 

Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow. 

We thank you one and all for your kind attention. 

George H. Barnhart.

We love to hear the printing press; 

There's music in its roar. 
And when it's printing things we wrote 

We love it all the more. 

New York. 


First Frosh — "Did you ever take ether?" 
Second Frosh — ''No — who teaches it?" 

I wear all his clothes, 
And watched where he goes. 
I know all his secrets 
That no one else knows. 

I know what he thinks 

I know what he drinks. 

I borrow from him 

When my pocketbook shrinks. 

I steal his smokes, 
And laugh at his jokes. 
But, if he betrays me, 
I hope that he chokes. 


He knows what I know; 
He knows what I owe. 
He may be a friend; 
He may be a foe. 

He camps on my trail, 
And reads all my mail. 
He cusses me out 
Each day without fail. 

There's only one thing 
That makes my heart sing — 
I took out his girl; 
Now she's wearing my ring.

Speaking of dreams, folks, 
I've had some corkers. 
I dreamed once I had 
a Million dollars. 
That was joyful. 
I dreamed once I attended 
the Soph dance, 
in a track suit and 
a pair of hip boots. 
That was laughable. 
I dreamed I knew a way 
of making hooch 
from door knobs. 
That was clever. 
I dreamed 
I goota square meal

That was excellent. 
But my best dream was 
that of shooting craps 
with Dr. Zoethout 
for my grades, 
and receiving 'A' on my

Silver threads that once gleamed brightly in the golden sunshine of youth, 
lay gently thy halo upon her head, and caress the brow of her we love. Thy 
precious strands are but a token of an undying constancy and devotion, sanctified 
in the purity of eternal love, and they crown a reward for a life well spent and a 
work well done. 

Days and years may come and go, the cheek may fade, the step grow slow, 
and even the willing hand may tremble, but the love, that priceless possession of 
man, is just as young and fair as in the golden days of the Springtime of Life. 
And as we travel on toward the end of the journey of Life, through winter frosts 
and chills, the summer warmth is still in our hearts and we press the loving hand 
of her we love, and gently say, "Darling, I am growing old, silver threads among 
the gold. Shine upon my brow today, life is fading fast away." 

Hallen will gladly explain the causes and effects of an Hematoma in the orbital 


Barnhardt's environment.

When the college opened in the Fall, one of the largest registrations in the 
history of the school was recorded. The Freshman class comprised about two 
hundred students from all parts of this country and from many foreign countries. 
On the evening of October the third, the Freshmen and new members were wel- 
comed into the college. Several interesting talks were delivered by some of the 
most prominent men of the school. 

The following day the class was divided into two sections. This made it more 
difficult to become acquainted. The lack of class unity was soon observed and 
the election of officers followed. Munson was chosen president, Harlin, vice- 
president; Powell, treasurer; Bowles, secretary; and later Oldaker, as sergeant- 

The Christmas holidays rapidly approached and were followed by the semester 
examinations with their joys and sorrows. 

The second semester began with the members of the class somewhat decreased 
in number, but with more pep and determination than before. In the Spring, 
a class dance was held, which was followed by many other social functions. 

At the end of the first school year the class was still intact and was satisfied 
that the year had been a pleasant and successful one

THE DENTOS — 1924 

Mr. Norpel with another C. C. D. S. student was attending the showing of 
"Obstetrics and Gynecology" at the Bishop theater. A prim, attractive young 
nurse, evidently absorbed in the picture, slowly removed her coat. She turned 
to him and said: 

''Excuse me for obstructing your view." 

"Miss," quickly replied he, "I much prefer the obstruction to the view." 

In a dental chair in the infirmary was seated a charming young lady. She 
had an ample portion of rubber sheeting protruding from her mouth. Shelley, 
our literary Freshman, looking in from the hallway, mused: "Beautiful but 

Mr. Oldakre was scanning a display of gowns in a medical supply house. 

Clerk: "Sir, shall I show you some of our ready-made gowns?" 

Oldakre: "No, thank you; I have never found anything ready-made but a 
handkerchief that I could use." 

Dr. Kendall: "Madell, describe a molecule." 

Madell "A molecule is a small particle of matter that looks like " 

Dr. Kendall interposed, "Nobody knows how a molecule looks." 

Madell: "Well, they will when I get through." 

Scarff's post mortem: "Boys, I think I spelled my name right." 

Motto for English students: "Be sure you are right, and then keep quiet 
about it. 

Dr. Suddarth (in Biology) "The omnipotence that made you, made a daisy." 

Dr. Kendall: "If I had to be an animal " 

Dr. Umbach: "Yes, fellows, this tissue is simple — nothing more simple; 
wait till you try to explain it." 

Dr. Platts: "I think these grooves would be more apparent were you listen- 


Hollywood Special: "I usually do two story work; I shall limit myself to 
one on this occasion." 

. Freshman to Dr. Umbach: "This crayfish has but one of its chilipeds." 

Dr. Umbach: "You must remember that crayfish are great fighters. Male 
crayfish have been known to battle to death for the, affections of a female cray- 

Freshman "My! is that so; I'm going back to get a winner." 

Williston with another C. C. D. S. student was visiting a downtown cafe. 
He saw tiny glass flasks of moonshine, and sociable men and women. A gentle- 
man at a table nearby became quite chummy. Williston was invited to a booth — . 
An hour later Williston explained with thick slow-flowing words to the companion 
he had deserted that the technic the moonshiners used was excellent. He added, 
in a regretful tone, "The glassblowers must have been short of breath when they 
blew those glasses."

Mr. Ogden Mills, the Wisconsin boy of seventeen summers, after the holidays' 
vacation, told confidentially this one: 

Wisconsin Rapids checker sharp: "What are you fellers studying up there 
in Chicago now?" 

Ogden (himself): "We're learning all about molecules." 

Checker Sharp: "Well, well, that's certainly wonderful. I've been around 
in my days; I've tried everything; but don't you know I never could keep one 
of them things in my eyes." 

Every seat in the street car was occupied; women were standing. The con- 
ductor noticed Ruzic on his way to school. Thinking that Ruzic was asleep, 
the conductor awoke him. Ruzic womewhat agitated, said: 

"I wasn't asleep." 

"Your eyes were closed." 

"I don't like to see women standing." 

Munson: "Harlan, you know that five hundred dollar diamond ring I had. 
Well, I left it in the bath room last night. I went back five minutes later. It 
was gone — nowhere to be found." 

Harlan "That's nothing; I leave a ring in the bath tub every Saturday 


That the latest style cigarette holder is a modern girl. 
That the voice of love has a metallic ring. 
That a chemistry exam may be an acid test. 
That one way to study for college is to study how to raise hell. 
That some women are so afraid of catching cold they stop up the holes in a 

That some have ears for music, while others have necks for soap. 

Dr. Vogt: "There are only five men at this table. Where is the other one?" 
Powell: "Oh! he's been looking at this cadavre so long he had to go get some- 
thing to eat." 


Dr. Umbach: "Do you think that carving resembles a tooth?' 

Perlman: "Would a clock in Dunning have the correct time?' 

Peterson: "Let me give him a set of brains.' 

L. H. Munson, after working in the supply house at the college, decided to 
take up dentistry. 

When the class officers were to be elected, Mr. Bowles rose to his feet and 
nominated Munson, saying, "He has been here for three and one-half years". 

From the rear of the class: "And he is only a freshman now." 

Collar day of this year, from the freshman point of view, was a horrible and 
outrageous affair. 

From the old timers or upper classmen's view point it was the calmest and 
least interesting of many years.

It was at a fraternity party, 
About a month or so ago, 
That I met the classiest mama 
I-'d ever want to know. 

Her eyes were dark blue color; 
Her hair was that of a vamp. 
Almost the minute I saw her, 
My eyes lit up like a lamp. 

I danced with her that evening, 

And asked her if real soon 

She would like to go out on the veranda 

To sit and look at the moon. 

I talked to her about the sky, 
The flowers, and all the birds. 
In fact I talked so much to her 
That I ran clear out of words. 

I shot a line to her that night 
About my riches and such, 
Until finally I was convinced 
That her heart I did touch. 

So we made plans for the wedding, 
And all went along real fine, 
As I kissed the maiden so fair that night 
Exactly at half past nine. 

As we were about to part that eve, 
And I was filled with joy, 
My friend took off his bobbed hair wig, 
And I discovered she was a boy. 



My roll top desk could tell a tale 
Of my strenuous efforts not to fail; 
Chemical symbols are cut in the side, 
And lecture notes the drawers do hide. 
From the pigeon hole my physics peeps; 
In left hand drawer my anatomy sleeps. 
And, as I struggle away for life, 
The desk feels the strain of my pocket knife. 
But if I'm successful in June's last test, 
I'll view with pride my battered desk. 


Once upon a morning dreary, I closed my eyes, weak and weary, 
During a lecture quaintly crammed with chemistry galore. 
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, 
As of some one gently rapping, rapping on the lecture floor. 
"'Tis for another," I concluded, "that he is tapping on the floor- 
Only this and nothing more." 

Ah, distinctly I recall, as I plodded through the hall, 
How Dr. Kendall brought his foot upon the floor. 
Eagerly I wished with sorrow those few moments I did not borrow, 
That I might return tomorrow — tomorrow for that chemistry galore. 
Then I heard from Dr. Kendall no more tapping as I had before. 
God! 'Twas a dream — nevermore! 

Our Mr. Mills, aged seventeen, 
Dropped his wax in the finishing machine. 
Now nobody knows where Mills lurks; 
He's frightened since he gummed the works. 

"I learned about plaster from Clymer," 
Some poetic freshman has said, 
"And more can be learned from a climber, 
Than oceans of books, well read." 

A man I like 
Is Doctor Finch; 
But he doesn't know it; 
That's a cinch.

THE DENT OS— 1924 


We met upon the Level an' we parted on the Square, 

\\ ith that sentiment do the members of one of the youngest 
fraternities in dental colleges meet. The Trowel Fraternity. Aye, 
let me repeat again, The Trowel Fraternity! Those simple words 
convey a world of meaning. Do they not cause the discouraged one 
to take cheer in the thought that no matter how black the present 
may seem there are still those who are ready and willing to extend a 
helping hand to make the future more bright? Is not that enough 
to make the heart bound with joy? Is not that enough to make each 
member proud of his membership? 

Since its inception The Trowel Fraternity has grown rapidly. It 
has taken the leading place wherever it has been organized. Why? 
Because of its unity of purpose. That purpose is for the advance- 
ment of the fraternity, and for the advancement of the individual 
members in their chosen profession. 

This fraternity, unlike other dental fraternities, was not instituted 
merely to promote social activities for its members. The object was, 
also, to offer the members the best in the dental profession by the 
privilege of attending regularly conducted clinics by men of high 
standing in the profession. These clinics are of much interest to the 
undergraduate, because through them he is enabled to gain more 
knowledge of dentistry. 

Some day, in the near future, The Trowel Fraternity will be con- 
sidered as an institution and not only as a fraternity. So, let us be 
happy in our membership!

Members of Beta Chapter, Delta Sigma Delta carved their own niche in the 
Hall of Social Fame during the session of '23 and '24. We are glad to announce 
that most of the regular blue-bloods that marched in our ranks last year, answered 
roll call this year. It was unnecessary to infuse new blood into our veins, as that 
which was present was functioning properly, and helping us to carry on our banner 
to its ultimate goal of success. 

It is a well known fact that the Delta Sigma Delta fraternity is the oldest 
dental fraternity in the country. Established in 1883, at Ann Arbor, Michigan, 
and re-established at Beta Chapter, Chicago College of Dental Surgery, the 
following year, we have builded ourselves a sterling reputation of which we are 
duly proud. A glance at our illustrious personel will suffice to show that in se- 
lecting men for our organization we have been more than exacting in our demands 
of character, scholarship, and genuine good fellowship. Men like Brophy, Logan, 
and Johnson would well grace the rolls of any dental fraternity. They are our 
ideals. It is in their footsteps that we hope to follow. 

Beta's first family reunion of the year brought together her many loyal sons 
at the Garfield Park Refectory, on October 20th. Dancing and a light luncheon 
served as enhancers to the reunion. 

We entertained the Freshmen at the Great Northern Hotel, on November 28. 
Some 150 palates were traversed by the tantalizing viands at this sitting; the 
same number of oral orifices became temporary Nicotine garages, and some 300 
eyes and ears were treated to masterpieces in vocalization and terpsichorean pal- 
pitations by several fair damsels. It was a real Smoker, so real that we had to 
be chaperoned to the exit by the milkman on his morning round. Everybody 
was glad to come and sorry to leave. 

On January 25th we put on an Instep Exhibition at the Parkway hotel, among 
the Up-Stogers on the elite North Side. We had an inspired orchestra of musi- 
cians in attendance, and a place more than ample for our means. A very likely 
looking crop of yearlings was present at this spectacle, a goodly number of true 
"Siggers," and a generous representation of faculty members. Then ensued the 
social activities of the first semester under the management of Wendell and Mc- 
Laughlin as the Entertainment Committee. 

Fred Cody took charge of our entertainment at the beginning of the second 
semester, and selected the Morrison Hotel for our first dance. This spectactular 
extravaganza was staged as a St. Patrick's day affair, even though it was held 
on March 15th. We had a successful "Delt" affair, due largely to the zealous 
attempts of an ambitious and highly capable orchestra to inveigle our O'Sullivans 
into avid circulation. The efforts of the orchestra were well rewarded as the 
attendant individuals more than responded to the pep instilling jazzications of 
the mellifluous melody-makers. 

On April 28th of this semester, we expect to climax our social endeavors of the 
year with a Dinner Dance at the LaSalle Hotel. The "Dentos" goes to press 
before that date, however, and we can only visualize the degree of success which 
we hope that this affair will attain. If it even approaches the stupendously well 
arranged dance of last year's final party we will have to coin adjectives and 
expletives to describe accurately its degree of success. An inkling as to what 
will be offered is that Paul Beise's orchestra will probably officiate. That news, 
in itself, is an ultimatum to all crepe-hangers and singers of the blues. 

We feel that Beta has enjoyed a highly successful year, both socially and 
scholastically. Some twenty-five Beta sigs expect to graduate this spring and 
each one has well earned his laurels. That is a pleasant thought with which to 
end this report.

The Psi Omega Fraternity was founded in 1892, at the Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery, Baltimore, Maryland. It has grown in that time from a small 
group of men that organized it until it has the distinction of being the largest 
body, excepting the National Dental Association, in the world. 

Psi Omega has always stood for one idea — the advancement of the Dental 
profession, and the high aims of the fraternity as instilled into the men as mem- 
bers are not only carried throughout their years of school, but are taken with 
them into practice as shown in all obtainable professional literature. New mem- 
bers have always been selected with this idea in view, and, as a result, the or- 
ganization is composed of a body of men who are incessantly delving into the 
mysteries of science, hoping to throw light on some subject which will benefit 
the profession. The rapid expansion of the fraternity was made possible by the 
principles upon which it was founded and as each year closes, new and higher 
standards are formed for the new men to meet and the old men to keep 

On December 15th, 1923, a dance was given at the Morrison Hotel in honor 
of the freshmen. The affair was decidedly successful, and the first year men 
were given a wonderful opportunity of studying the members of the fraternity. 

St. Valentine was honored with a dance on February 16th, and a large at- 
tendance made the initial party at the new home one not to be forgotten 

The Alumni of Psi Omega made it possible to have one of the peppiest meetings 
we have had in years by coming out en-masse to a smoker given for them on the 
night of March 9th, 1924. 

The entertainment committee proved their ability by making the St. Patrick's 
Day party, given at the house, better than the preceding dance. The Psi Omega 
Harmony Kings established their reputation as musicians before the intermission. 

To bring the members of Iota, Alpha Beta, and Kappa Chapters together, 
it was decided to give a Tri Chapter Dance. On the night of April 19th, 1924, 
at 9 o'clock, every local chapter was represented to a man at a formal ball given 
at the Parkway Hotel, and presided over by nine of Benson's Picked personnel. 
Ever}- new member personally signified his pleasure in being with us. 

Another house party re-kindled the spirit of fraternalism on the night of April 
23, 1924. We regretted that this was the final;. dance at our home, but our at- 
tention was brought to the Formal Dinner Dance in honor of the Psi Omega 

The dinner dance was given at the Edgewater Beach Hotel, on May 6th. 
Dancing was continued until the small hours of the morning. Not a man present 
will ever forget the fitting farewell to our graduating brothers.

There are times when a fellow is lonesome; 
There are times when a fellow feels blue; 
There are times when a fellow needs some one 
To tell his troubles to. 

But when he has a brother, 
Or "zip" friend, tried and true, 
The hours don't seem so lonesome, 
And his troubles are very few.

Another year has passed, and, with its passing, a great many marked improve- 
ments have been made in Lambda Chapter. It seems that as the years go by 
Lambda Chapter of Xi Psi Phi continues to become one of the best chapters of 
the fraternity and a leading organization in the college. We have seen several 
classes come in as "verdant frosh" and go out "brim full" of knowledge, but 
it seems that the "zips" of the senior class of '24 are far above the standard. 
Moreover, the "zips" of the lower classes are running a close second, and we 
trust that they will break all records as their time for graduation approaches. 

During the school term of '23 and '24 Xi Psi Phi has tried in every way to 
improve the fraternity and to cooperate with the faculty of C. C. D. S. in every 
way possible. We have upheld the standards of the fraternity to the best of our 
ability. Seme of the graduating "Zips" do not fully realize what the fraternity 
has meant to them, and how it has helped them on their "rough and rugged 
road" through school. After they have been out of college for a few years and 
miss the companionship and friendship of their brother "Zips" and classmates, 
they will be better able to appreciate the happy times they enjoyed during their 
college days. They will then realize that college life without the fraternity would 
have been a dull and monotonous routine. 

Two new "Zips" were added to the faculty during the past school year. Dr. 
Fouser, who teaches anatomy and assists in the exodontia department and Dr. 
Pendleton, who is demonstrating in the crown and bridge department. These 
men are loyal "Zips" and take an active part in the fraternity. We are certainly 
pleased to have them with us.

The year 1923-24 marks another milestone in the continual progress of the 
Alpha Zeta Gamma. The year will be long remembered from the viewpoint 
of social activities, as well as fraternal accomplishments, as perhaps the most 
successful in the history of our fraternity. 

Alpha Zeta Gamma has, since the day of its inception, maintained a high 
standard regarding the admission of new men. Before a student can become a 
member, he must successfully complete his freshman year. No one with an}' 
conditions or failures is admitted. Moreover, a thorough investigation of ever}' 
candidate is made, as regards his moral and intellectual fitness. We can truth- 
fully say that our fraternity possesses the best material obtainable. We do all 
in- our power to inculcate in the minds of our members the spirit of true fraternal- 
ism and all that the word implies. 

On November 22, 1923, our annual smoker was held in the Rose Room of 
the Morrison Hotel. The faculty was well represented, as well as the alumni. 
The entertainment was the best to be had and all enjoyed themselves. On Nov- 
ember 2, 1923, a Hallowe'en party and dance was held at the Brownleigh Club. 
It was a decidedly successful affair, and the utmost enjoyment and enthusiasm 

Our midwinter dance took place at the Columbus Park refectory on February 
25, 1924. With a superb orchestra, the members, alumni and pledges disported 
themselves until the wee hours of the morning. Moreover, a dance and a reception 
in honor of the freshmen pledges were held in March and April. 

At every other meeting, capable practitioners were present to address us on 
various phases of dentistry. 

The year was fittingly ended by our annual banquet and dance at the Hotel 
Sherman on April 27, 1924. The faculty and alumni were represented in large 
numbers. This grand affair, from the standpoint of attendance and entertainment, 
easily surpassed all previous banquets.

This meeting celebrated the forty-first anniversary of the institution, and 
special efforts were made by the officers and the committees to make it the best 
in the history of our organization. We felt highly honored in having on our pro- 
gram such well-known men as Dr. Weston A. Price of Cleveland, Ohio; Dr. George 
B. Winter of St. Louis, Missouri, and Dr. Charles Lane of Detroit, Michigan. 
With the two exceptions of Dr. Price and Dr. Winter, all of the other men on 
our program were our own alumni. 

The clinical program was carried out at the College Building. 


The largest and best banquet ever held by the Alumni Association took place 
Monday evening, April 7th, in the Ball Room of the La Salle Hotel. 

Judge Michael L. McKinley, Chief Justice of the Criminal Court of Cook 
County during 1923, addressed us on the subject, "Duties of Citizenship." 

We reserved the largest banquet room in Chicago, and it was filled to capacity. 
The overflow crowd of last year forced us to seek a much larger room. The banquet 
was different — that is, there was more entertainment and fewer speeches. It 
was full of pep from start to finish. 

Tables were reserved for each class. The Classes of 1899, 1894, 1889, and 
1884 were the honored guests of the Association. 

Many alumni from other schools were present as the invitations were extended 
to all ethical members of the dental profession.

The Student Council of the Chicago College of Dental Surgery was organized 
at the suggestion of the faculty in the fall of 1921 by the present senior class, 
who at that time were sophomores. In the beginning of this organization its 
four members from each class were elected in November by their class to hold 
office for one year. Its three faculty representatives were appointed by the Dean. 
After observing the operation of this body it was generally conceded that it Alight 
better serve its purpose if its student members were composed of those holding 
the four highest offices in each class. It was therefore determined in the fall of 
1923 that the Student Council would in the future be composed of three faculty 
members appointed by the Dean and the four members of each class holding 
the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. 

The Student acts as a mediating body between the faculty and the students 
as a whole and as such is in a position of great usefullness to the students, the 
faculty and the college.

THE DENTOS — 1924 


Those of us who have already spent a few years at the Dental College fully 
realize the reason why it is practically impossible for a professional college to 
participate in and encourage athletics to a degree that is enjoyed by the Liberal 
Arts and Science schools. Our courses have been so planned that the day is well 
filled, especially in the last two years. In addition to the class work there is the 
theory which has to be prepared after school hours. Therefore, proper team 
organization seems to be out of the question and our only athletic hope is in those 
departments in which the events depend on individual athletic ability rather 
than on team play. Besides the lack of time, another drawback is the lack of 
proper facilities such as gymnasium, grounds, etc. 

The only thing we do not lack is athletic material. Of that we have a plenty. 
Many a college coach would do wonders had he the material that is available 
at C. C. D. S. We have athletes who have starred in every sport, letter men 
of the Big Ten conference, letter men of eastern, western, and southern colleges, 
and scores of high school and academy stars in every branch of athletics. 

Since our college, however, has become the dental department of Loyola 
University, a university which has always encouraged athletics, and which has 
been rapidly coming to the front as a strong contender, in every branch of ath- 
letics, it is hoped that the students of C. C. D. S. will regard it as their duty to 
do their bit for their new "Alma Mater". A good start has already been made 
by Emil Kamin, who was a valuable man on the basketball team and by Wm. 
Redlich, who represented Loyola University in the skating meets. It is hoped 
that more of the men who are capable will give their support to various teams' 
and will win honors for their school as well as for themselves. 

When we speak of our athletes at C. C. D. S. we consider their past performances 
and records, rather than their present activities, but we wish to give credit where 
credit is due. Here's hoping that in the future we may be able to tell of the pro- 
wess of our athletic teams, as well as that of our individual athletic stars.

The "Flying Dutchman" carried the Loyola 
colors to the front this year. Bill was another 
of our string of athletes, who competed for our 
new Alma Mater as soon as our college became 
a part of the University. He and his partner, 
Lars Lundqost, made a creditable showing, 
although handicapped by the irregularity in the 
condition of the ice this season. Bill can boast 
of a long and honorable record in the skating 
sport. His career dates back to 1917 when he 
won the city title for fancy skating. The fol- 
lowing year he tried his skill in speed skating 
and won the playground championship, estab- 
lishing a new record for the half mile event. 
Since then he has competed in almost every 
race held in this part of the country and won 
many honors and medals. In 1922, while in 
Europe, he competed against his native country- 
men in the indoor rink at Berlin. Bill has in- 
tentions of entering medical school next year, 
and, if he does, in all probabilities, it will be the 
Loyola College of Medicine. We expect, there- 
fore, to see him skating again next season under 
the same colors.

"Eddie", our "six day" man, is one of the best amateur bike 
riders in the middle west. He was one of the first five in points 
for the city and state championship. He and the city "champ" 
were considered the best amateur team on the dirt track circuit, 
and won practically all the races from fifteen miles and up. "Koke" 
is known for his staying prowess, and rides practically the whole 
distance for his team, except when relieved for the sprints by- his 
partner. At a recent six-day race at the Coliseum, Ed and his 
partner were leading the field in the hour team race, having won 
the first three sprints. But they were forced to drop out of what 
seemed to be a certain victory on account of injury to his partner. 
Koke was a runner up for the middle-west Bicycle Championship, 
losing by two points, and was the only one to score in all events. 
During his entire career he represented the well known Alverno 
Athletic Club.

THE DENTOS — 1924 



Karst is as well known to the basketball world as Cas- 
toria is to children. There's reason enough for that. Eddie 
is considered one of the best, if not the best, forward in 
the country, and has been placed on the Ail-American A. 
A. U. team. Eddie's basketball career dates back to his 
/ J grammar school days and in 1914, '15, '16, he was captain 

I .£9 and mainstay of the Fond-du-Lac High School team when 

it won the state championship. He was then selected as 
captain of the Wisconsin all-state team. In 1919 while 
captain of Marquette University team, which won the A. 
A. U. championship, he was selected as all-American for- 
ward. That same year he was also a member of the famous 
Olympic team that won the Central A. A. U. championship. 
He was the main player of that wonderful team that beat 
the New York Celts. The Celts formerly were the National professional basketball 
champions and featured that much advertised $12,000 a year star, Beckman. 
In that series Eddie outplayed and outscored Beckman three to one, and his 
team beat the Celts in two of a three game series. In 1920 Eddie left the amateur 
ranks and has since been a member of several professional teams such as the 
Milwaukee Bright Spots, Fond-du-Lac, De Soto Council, K. of C, and several 
others. Professional basketball in the winter months and semi-pro baseball in 
the summer have kept Eddie in "spending money" since he has come to C. C. 
D. S. He promises to be heard from in the future. Good Luck, Eddie! 

J . K . TITUS 

"Tite" comes well recommended. His record speaks 
for itself. Titus obtained his first competitive experience 
at Richmond High School, where he starred in track, foot 
ball and baseball. From there he went to the Kentucky 
Normal College and won his varsity letter in both base 
ball and football. Before entering C. C. D. S. Titus was 
at the State University of Iowa. He was a member of 
that famous football team that boasted of such men as 
the renowned Slater and others. Titus played half on 
that team. Not satisfied with his varsity letter in one 
sport, he became the first baseman of the baseball nine. 
He starred in football and track and was presented with 
major I's in each sport.

Paule is considered one of the leading light-weight 
wrestlers in the country. Competing under the name 
of "Ostropol", he is probably better known under that 
name. He was always a clean cut athlete interested 
in all sports. While in high school he played on the 
football, track, and basketball teams, and was captain 
of the last named for two consecutive years. In the 
nine years of his wrestling career he has won several 
championships at different' weights. Among these are, 
Y. M. C. A., Amateur Athletic Federation, South and 
West Parks, and International Gymnastic Union. He 
was also a member of the famous J. R. I. wrestling 
team which won almost every tournament in the country, 
including the Central and National A. A. U. tournaments. 
Two members of that team were placed on the United 
States Olympic team. This year Paule was training 
with his eye on the United States Olympic team which 
is to compete in France this summer. Studies and injuries have interfered with 
his training, but he still hopes and will compete in the try-outs this Spring. The 
probabilities are that this will be his last year in competitive athletics, and in the 
future he expects to do all of his wrestling with his patients.

You probably wouldn't think so by looking at him, but the 
fact remains that Mac is a twirler of no mean reputation. In 
1917, while at the University of Illinois he pitched for the 
freshman varsity baseball team, and was looked upon as a 
sure prospect for the pitching end of the Varsity team for the 
following year. But the following year Mac changed his 
educational plans. Therefore in 1919-20 he was in the Gary- 
Industrial League, where he was credited with 17 games won 
and 7 lost. The following season Mac landed in the South 
Dakota Sunshine League, finishing with a record of 12 games 
won and 2 lost. He spent the season of 1921 with the Marcus 
Iowa team' and that of 1922 with the Sherwood A. C, of 
Chicago. Mac was also connected with several K. of C. teams 
and from recent reports we have it that he throws the ball as 
well as ever. His love for the dental profession has cheated 
many a major league team out of a shining star (?).

While at Marshall High School, Emil was the scoring 
ace during his four years on the bantamweight and light- 
weight teams and was a member of that team when it won 
the high school championship. Since leaving high school he 
has played with numerous championship teams. This year, 
as soon as our new affiliation was officially announced Emil 
jcined the Loyola team. The boy with the "eagle eye" 
and the pride of C. C. D. S. starred at forward this year on 
the Loyola University basketball team and though he did 
not join the team until the middle of the season, he was a 
valuable aid to Coach Sach's fighting quintet. Kamin is 
a "dead shot" and a marvelous "floor man", being always 
there and fighting hard. He was the main prop this year 
of the famous Marshall Dypstars, the team that won the 

Cook County heavyweight championship. Next year Kamin, no doubt, will be 

with the Loyola team. 


Fetridge is one of our C. C. D. S. athletes who has competed 
under the C. C. D. S. colors in several meets. His specialty in the 
track events is the 440. He is the present holder of the high school 
record for this event which he established in 1921 while competing 
as a member of the Schurz High School team. In his freshman year 
he competed for C. C. D. S. in the 122nd Regiment Armory meet 
and placed third in the 440, being defeated by one yard for first 
place by McFarlane, who is now the indcor conference champion. 
The time for that race was 50^ seconds. Fetridge is a member of 
the famous Norwegian American Club. Fetridge has heard the call 
of his new Alma Mater and will try for the Loyola University track 
team this spring when the outdoor season opens. We do not doubt 
that "Fet" will win a place on that team and will thus help to gain 
recognition for C. C. D. S. in athletics.

Porter has been swimming in the Amateur Athletic Association of 
Chicago for the past six years, and, during this time, has appeared in 
practically all their meets held in and around Chicago. His team, 
the Sinai Social Center, has not lost a meet in twelve years. During 
the year of 1923 he has twice successfully defended his title as 40 
yard free style champion of Chicago against all comers and is ex- 
pected to repeat his record in the coming meets in April. A Chicago newspaper 
gave the following report of a meet in which Porter participated: "George 
Porter of the Sinai Social Center pulled the surprise of the evening by beating 
Russel Ward, former title holder in the 40 yard swim, negotiating that distance 
in the remarkable time of 19 1-5 seconds. Porter is also a member of the relay 
team holding the 160 yard relay record of the A. F. F. We wish our "Johnny 
Weissmiller" luck for the coming season. 


all-star team. 

Rosen is a track and basketball star, with a wonderful 
reputation, and another of the C. C. D. S. athletes who will 
compete for the Loyola University. Rosen was classed as 
one of the fastest men in the Chicago high schools, and was 
a member of the Crane High School team from 1917 to 1920. 
His favorite events are the 50 yard, 100 yard and 220 yard 
dashes. He represented the Chicago Hebrew Institute and 
the Calumet Baking Powder Co. in numerous track meets. 
Last summer while representing the Calumet team in the 
Industrial track meet Rosen made thirteen out of a total of 
fifteen points made by the Calumet team. He was the in- 
dividual star and point winner of the meet. He shines no 
less in basketball. In 1918 he was picked on the Cook County 
He was captain of the 115 pound, A. A. F. champions in 1918. 

We next expect to hear from Rosen under the C. C. D. S., Loyola colors. 



Little, but oh my! You wouldn't think that all this was 
.him, but he certainly is all there. In 1918 Sone was runner 
up at Urbana, Illinois for the interscholastic tennis cham- 
pionship and only lost that honor in a hard fought set. In 
I9i7-'i8-'i9 he was a member of the Bowen High School 
basketball team, of which he was captain in 1919. That 
same year he was picked as all-Chicago guard, which is con- 
sidered an honor and destinction. Besides tennis and basket- 
ball Sone is also an ardent and skillful golf player and was 
a member of the Bowen High School golf team in igi7-'i8-'i9. 
We expect that he will not let his skill go to waste but will 
represent the C. C. D. S. department of Loyola University.

THE DEN'TOS — 1924 


I asked her to be seated in the chair. 

I pumped it up, and then I caught her hair 

In the engine as I set it into place, 

And placed upon the stool my case, 

Full of new things the use of which I did not know. 

And then I asked her to "Open", as I bent low 

The better to see into her mouth. 

Teeth she had; she told me that. 

But, as I placed my mirror in that oral vat, 

I saw but my own face reflected there. 

My knees shook but my jaw was set, 

As my scalers I began to whet 

Upon my Arkansas stone. 

My patient looked askance at me 

And then I looked askance at her. 

And finally I began to see, 

That I must go to work. 

So I started in to scale her teeth, 

And, when I'd gouge her, she would jump, 

Then for my own relief the chair I'd pump. 

Somehow I finished the job, 

And when I finally saw her bob 

Out of my sight, I sighed aloud, I think, 

"Gone, but not forgotten. Quick a drink!" 

This rhyme is poor; the metre's worse, 
But you'll admit that it is terse. 
And, if you've been there, you will see 
The thought conveyed, and then will be 
Quite prone to overlook the rest. 
But anyhow I've done my best.

When Anthony Caster's uncle, Dr. E. Z. CowchaufTer, of Rustic City tipped 
off his nephew to the extent that Dentistry, as a provider of three squares daily, 
was quite the Amoeba's Adenoids, ("but", you will say, "the Amoeba has no — " 
and I, allowing my imagination free reign in order that it may keep up with my 
pen, will treat you like the acrobat with the broken back would treat you, I won't 
give you a tumble) he merely wished to eliminate the kid's freck-be-speckled 
physiognomy from his immediate environment and used this first 'ask-out' that 
came to his mind as a mechanically adopted, theoretical, eradicator. 

But Anthony, who had always been an ardent admirer of the Shears and Saw- 
buck's line of fiction, took his mother's brother seriously and proceeded Chicago- 
ward to pursue an insignificant amount of a .Lamb's overcoat. He was uncere- 
moniously precipitated through his Freshman session, and shunted back to the 
farm for a brief breathing spell. 

The Kid, however, being a Castor, knew his oil, and came up for the second 
round with plenty of pep, a vague idea of Prosthetics, and an avaricious appetite 
for Knowledge. He spent the ensuing session pursuing helpless and numerous 
"homely illustrations" around the street-car-infested campus, playing microscopic 
tag with minute denizens of Dr. Suddarth's Orphan Asylum, and learning what 
was quite the right idea of Physiology, from that subject's most able exponent, 
Dr. Zoethout. He didn't have so much time this year for Torso-Tanglings at 
Sleep-Country (Dream Land)as he did as an unlearned Freshman, but he managed 
to keep up his dues in the Lambda Lambda Lots well enough to indulge in most 
of their dances. This year was pretty hard on Anthony, but he survived it, plowed 
and harvested through the four month intermission, and drifted in all primed 
for the Penultimate Lap of the Ewe Dermis Pursuit. 

As a Junior our Embryonic Orthodontic Exponent took several healthy spills, 
especially when called upon to do his stuff within the Oral Cavity. He learned, 
much to his chagrin, that his previous 'steen years of apprenticeship on a pitch- 
fork helped not a bit in adjusting the Rubber Dam to a patient's Inferior Third 
Molar, that Prophylaxis was not a musical instrument and that the Insertion 
of two Surface Golden Foils was far removed from manicuring a Field of corn. 
But Anthony Caster, as I have inferred previously, was made of the sterner stuff 
and he again survived the storm, acquiring his full Junior points at the end of 
the following September. 

Our Hero was then qualified for the last Diploma Dash and matriculated 
as an Erudite Palliater of Pain in the Senior class of 1924. He proceeded to add 
the Finishing Touches according to the following schedule: 

Young Mr. Caster took great pleasure in his ability to make large Inlay Re- 
storations without fracturing Finely Beveled Enamel Margins. He was able to 
extract teeth after administering Conductive Anaesthesia as easily as he had, 
as a Junior, merely Infiltrated. He became very adept at Replacing Pulps of 
Teeth with Gutta Percha cones, and at verifying his success by means of Radio- 
grams. Rome was not constructed in a mere twenty-four hours, nor were Anthony 
Caster's Amalgam Fillings and Silicate Deyslication, but he managed to meet 
the requirements after much Application. 

When it came to Crown and Bridge, Dr. Cowchauffer's nephew had a mean 
hurdle to straddle, but he did his part with the aid of Dr. McBoyle, the George 
Washington of Fixed Bridges. 

Rustic City's Leading-Dentist-Tc-Be had a regular Field Day when called 

THE DENTOS — 1924 

upon to restore complete arches with artificial Dentures. His 200 points in Senior 
Requirements were as but Drops in the Bucket of Fluid-Filled Achievement 
to this ambidextrous Individual. 

Anthony breezed gaily through his Senior requirements, to be sure, but he 
was not always portraying East Wind in this session of Dental Mah Jong. He 
Dr. Puterbaugh in the Infirmary rather often, and, because of his general super- 
vision, the younger Caster was ever and anon reminded that it paid most to 
practice Ethical Dentistry. He met Dr. Belding, too, and learned about " Prophos " 
from him. Indeed, instead of masquerading as the big noise in this Dental depart- 
ment of Chinese Poker, our Hero, was forced to "pung" along as best he could, 
"chowing" only rarely and humbling answering roll call to a "Character" and 
an Ordinary character, at that. The many Obstacles he had to Surmount, while 
adding considerably to his Store of Ideas, also aided materially in his acquisition 
of ash-hued hair follicles, and added Corrugations to the External Epidermal 
aspect of his anterior Ocerpital Protuberance. Worry was as much a part of his 
Senior Curriculum as wrinkles are part of an accordian Pleated Plum, alias, a 
. Prune. 

Master Caster fulfilled his Senior Social Obligations as Lord Chesterfield filled 
a Dress Suit, attending all the Instep Marathons that Old Man Jazz was responsible 
for during the Entire Season of 1924. He did more than his share to care for the 
Pleasures of the Homely and Homeless Nurses of the Wild West Side. Incident- 
ally, of course, Our Leading Man found ample time for his three daily Tonsil 
Tournaments at the Board that Cheers and Sustains, he was able to indulge 
in Somnambulistic Siesta's nightly, and he attended as many Lectures as the 
Average Senior. 

Time sped on, as Time has the habit of doing, and the Pride of Rustic City 
took his Primary State Board, indulged in his final Test-Tussling Debacle at the 
College, and became eligible to pay his Twenty Bucks for a limited portion of 
Sheep Skin. 

The Search of His-Right-to-Fleece was now over. With his Diploma in hand 
the Ex-Country-Bumpkin looked back over the years of his Struggle for Science, 
his Pursuit of Perfection, in Calm Retrospection. 

It had been a Rocky Road, indeed, this acquirement of a Dental Degree. He 
had let loose of much lucre in' those four years, had met and overcome many 
Mental Hogards only after calling forth the Utmost Ability of every Brain Cell 
that existed under his College Hair Cut. His Numerous Struggles to Master 
the Many Technics required by every Good Dentist had become but vague in- 
cidents in the Chaotic Past. He had made many Good Friends during those 
Four Years of Study, but welcomed the Bitter-Sweet Joys of Commencement. 
But after all, he had now Run his Race, from now on he could be of Some Service 
Humanity. He could now be of some Use to his Fellow-Beings. It had, indeed, 
been a Grand Struggle, but, taking everything into consideration, it had certainly 
been Worth While.

Before You Can Practice 

Before you can open an office for the practice of dentistry, several important 
factors must be taken into consideration. 

I. 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 \ 2% 0I tne men located by the C. L. Frame Company have 
been successful because: 

I. In selecting a location, we have 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 our command, a corps of plumbers, carpenters, elec- 
tricians, 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 advocated 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 per- 
taining to your prospective office.

THE DENTOS — 1924 

Because of the value of the Dentist's time, which, in connection with his personality and 
talent, constitutes his principal asset in practice, he expects that all appointments be kept, and 
with promptness. 

However; the Dentist should also be interested in the conservation of time to the extent of 
using; time-saving materials. 

The basic principal upon which origination of BROPHY DENTAL PRODUCTS rests is 
saving of labor and time. That is particularly true of the following: 


This material while making casts for vulcanite 
work may be depended upon to produce dentures 
perfectly true to the impression, unlike copeting hard 
cast materials is manipulated like Plaster and calls 
for no more labor, or, time than does the use of Plaster. 

PLASTIC GRANITE mixes like cream without 
gas generation and bubbling, is neutral in expansion 
and contraction, and while positively undistortable 
under the process of vulcanization may be carved if 
necessary. It withstands fire and consequently is 
excellent for casts for bridge construction. 

The valuable properties of PLASTIC GRANITE 
are imparted to Plaster by mixing the two together. 


SEPARATINE when painted upon impression deposits 
an almost imperceptible coating which positively prevents 
cohesion. It is a wonder-working separating fluid and the 
most popular one on the market. 


A liquid which when painted upon cast before packing vulcanite causes the plate 
to come from flask readily cleanable by use of a hand brush. It is the only successful 
liquid substitute for tin-foil. 

^ Products of the BROHPY DENTAL MFG. CO. are for sale by DENTAL 
DEALERS everywhere. Invitation is extended to all dentists to send to us for samples in which 
they may be interested at any time.
