Dedicated to Ralph Logan
To Ralph Logan, one of the few real gentlemen left at Loyola. For his help
in keeping us in school, for his friendship, and because of his will and deter-
mination to make Loyola a better place in which to be educated, we salute
A great loss has befallen Loyola Dental School. The entire faculty, staff
and student body bereave the demise of Dr. Ralph Logan on July 19, 1971.
Dr. Logan was born in Traer, Iowa, on October 11, 1905. He received his
B.A. degree from the University of Iowa and his dental degree from the Uni-
versity of Minnesota. While at Minnesota he was elected to Court of Honor
and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society. He was elected presi-
dent to the Pi Chapter, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, at Loyola in 1970.
Upon graduation from Minnesota, he decided to specialize in orthodontics
thereby choosing his Alma Mater (University of Iowa) for his graduate
course. Upon completion of his course he decided to further his studies in
orthodontics at the University of Illinois. When this advanced course was
completed, he accepted a position as Head of the Orthodontics Department
at the Medical College of Virginia. After a few years of teaching, he became
an associate of Dr. Frederick Noyes, in Chicago. After the death of Dr. Fred-
erick Noyes, Dr. Logan decided to take over the practice of orthodontics in
Highland Park. At this location, he enjoyed a marvelous practice and gained
many friends. He gave up his practice in 1965, and became a full time pro-
fessor at Loyola's School of Dentistry.
During World War II, Dr. Logan served with dignity and honor as Chief of
Dental Service in the European and Pacific theatres.
He possessed the incredible ability of having students respect authority
and the willingness to cooperate to obtain the highest degree of efficiency.
He will be a tremendous loss to dental education, to the dental profession
and to those who admired him so much. We of the faculty, staff and student
body will miss him greatly and will cherish his memory.

SENIORS' ADVICE TO JUNIORS (1913)
Never buy a full outfit— borrow.
Get on the good side of Dr. Mac Boyle— he has one.
Always apply the rubber dam before making another ap-
pointment with your patient.
Whenever you see an amalgam filling take it out and in-
Don't let your patient know how little you know.
Use the same piece of rubber dam at least on three
different patients, it saves time in cutting holes.
Don't get a big head. Remember what a mighty class
Never be considerate to a freshman unless you want
some work done.
Never buy a text book. You won't need it. Use the library.
Join the Y.M.C.A. if you can find it.

Sitting down to write this brief biography brings back
some thoughts from the first year of dental school. When
we were told that year that this would be the fastest four
years of our lives I just couldn't believe it. But now as a
senior I realize how true this statement was. Learning the
basic medical sciences the first two years did not leave
much time for anything other than study. Much was
learned, but unfortunately, too much was forgotten
mainly because of lack of clinical correlation of these dis-
ciplines. For example, in order to correlate pharmacol-
ogy, we should have been exposed to much more anes-
thesia experience which is very important to us as den-
tists. The current dental clinical training is much too
standardized and rigid. Through elective clinical areas
more emphasis should be placed on learning and motiva-
tion and less on doing procedures with little academic
I plan after graduation to continue in the specialty of
oral surgery. I will be taking my internship and residency
at Cook County Hospital. The reason I picked the spe-
cialty of oral surgery is because I feel this is the only
specialty in which the highly sophisticated biological and
scientific training that we have acquired in the last four
years can be more practically applied, and the capabi-
lities of my degree will be used more efficient and more
often, as a doctor of dental surgery.
Paul T. Akers
As I look back on the last four years I have to laugh. It
was hell to go through, but we certainly had some good
times. I would definitely do it again, for dentistry means
that much to me. For those who helped me I say thank
you. However, I will never understand the chronic unpro-
fessionalism among a large piece of the teaching staff.
There is no rational reason for a dental student, one of
the chosen few, to be belittled to the extent that he is,
and the day after graduation to be an equal among his
peers. There is no reason for the female staff to push stu-
dents around the way they do. And most of all, there is
no reason for the lack of communication between the
students and the high administration. I believe that the
end results of all the jagging is a disregard for continuing
education on the part of the new graduate. His dental
school fear of failure can prohibit further learning. This
must not be allowed to happen. If all the forces realized
that to upgrade the profession they must start in the
schools, dentistry would truly be the leading medical
As to my future plans, they are simple. I am going into
the practice of general dentistry with my father in Chi-
cago. Being recently married, there are no plans yet for
children. I would like to do some traveling first. Perhaps in
four or five years, if I can afford it, I will come back to
teach, the sole purpose being to restore dignity to the
dental student and make him feel professional.

Both dental school and Chicago have been an ex-
perience that I will never forget. After being selected on
Loyola's late "draft choice" around the middle of Au-
gust, and figuring out just where Chicago was, I bought a
ticket for an airplane and arrived the next day in the
The first few years were filled with too much home-
work, bad weather, the old school, and a definite slow-
down in my extracurricular activities. About the only ex-
citement was the Friday night drinking sessions with the
boys. The last few years have been a little more fun.
Memories of the Eli Lilly trip with Dr. Lee, Paul Tesone
and myself looking for the elusive "TRIPLE" in the hotel
corridor will always remain.
Future plans call for a fast exit to California where
hopefully soon I will learn the art of "wirebending for a
living" before settling down in Fresno to someday raise a
family— after I get married, naturally. Like anything else,
you don't really know how much you miss something un-
til it is gone, and I am sure I will feel this way about my
four years at Loyola University School of Dentistry.
William J. Asbury
Looking back, I believe my dental education has
turned out to be a unique, interesting, and very reward-
ing experience. It feels good to have mastered a dis-
cipline about which I knew next to nothing just a few
years ago. But the knowledge that my dental education is
actually just starting makes me feel even better. Dental
school has provided me with the basics upon which I
hope to build a successful, enjoyable, and most impor-
tantly, a professional practice. Out of all the myriad de-
tails of baseplates, anatomic landmarks, and patient can-
cellations, the single most important feature I was
introduced to was professionalism. All the money in the
world could not provide as much pleasure as being a
professional person. Making the correct diagnosis, hav-
ing a patient's gratitude, detecting an early cancer, tai-
loring the treatment plan to the particular patient, and
seeing that this plan really works— and caring— are all
part of this. It is said that a good dentist should have an
insatiable quest for knowledge. I can already see this de-
veloping in myself, and I am pleased. Whatever my prac-
tice—and at the present it most assuredly will be a gen-
eral practice— whatever its location, I hope to conduct
myself under all of the tenets stated above.
Dental school had its good times. More often it had its
bad ones; so much so that at times I thought of quitting.
Luckily, I had an understanding, reassuring, and unde-
manding wife to see me through it all. Now we have Julie,
our first child, which, with finally finishing school, is like
fulfilling a dream. Sure, it's been rough, especially in the
financial and emotional areas, but I can truly say that if I
had it to do over again, I wouldn't have done it any other
Jeffrey A. Arnold
It is too bad that this book might be published before I
graduate, because I must refrain from offending anyone
as I have tried to for four years.
Since I started here in August of 1967, I have sat in a
lot of different seats; but there weren't any that I couldn't
sleep in, and there wasn't much reason not to. There
were a few men who tried to teach, there were even
fewer who had something to teach, and upon com-
bining these two conditions we end up with a select
group: Dr. Smulson, Dr. Gerhart, Dr. Dawson, Dr. Gow-
giel, Dr. Graber, Dr. Malone, Dr. Ensing, Dr. Jacklich.
From this group one is dead, one retired, and one is a
Dr. Amaturo said in August of 1967 that L.S.D. had a
great student-faculty rapport, but until last week, almost
four years later, no instructor ever called me by my first
name. Dr. Jacklich broke the four-year streak.
I thank this school for my degree and for letting me
know, in no uncertain terms that life is not just a bowl of

Here we are almost at the end of the senior year feeling
both elated and deflated at the same time. Much has
been learned, much not learned and much more left to
learn. As I reflect the last 3% years, many roles have
been assumed by me as well as the majority. I have been
an artist, sculptor, jeweler, lab technician and other
craftsman because of the various courses involved in
dental school. I will never forget the masses of pipes and
concrete on Harrison Street. That place was a sardine
can! There was no place to go except to the "Greeks"
and the five flights of stairs to the lecture rooms.
I enlisted in the Army in my sophomore year and upon
graduation I hope to be sent to Japan and enjoy the lux-
ury of a 40 hour work week, and do some of the things
that I have set aside to do. Best of luck to all!
I can still remember my heart falling and smashing my
toe when I first saw Loyola Dental School. I thought the
building was condemned. I am sure everyone remembers
the plumbing, the elevator, the small amp, those histol-
ogy quizes, compound impressions, our cadavers, the
spacious lockers, Come Back Inn and the fraternity rush
parties. We also heard about the existence of a new den-
tal school . . . somewhere!
Sophomore year brought us water color art lessons,
red X marks, the large amp when vacant, micro-organ-
isms, extensive lab facilities, frogs, mice, and other trivia.
Then . . . the big move! A new school!! We were juniors
starting out in clinic with our three charts. Remember the
lines in front of Dr. Burch's office, the flooded lower level,
the superb air conditioning, perio, the locker raid, points,
and finally the Christmas Show.
Senior year was that time of quiet, controlled PANIC.
Get those requirements! Get that parking space!
These four years were shared with my wife, Diane, and
two children. I would like to thank everyone who helped
make these years possible. Good luck to all of the new

RULES OF THE CLINIC
Don't flirt with the patients.
Don't refuse a tip.
Don't ever let a patient die in the chair.
Don't expect to find a demonstrator when you want one.
Don't try to amuse your patient by tickling an exposure.
Don't insert fillings on your "own hook".
Don't keep a patient in the chair over five hours.
Don't put the rubber dam posterior to a third molar.
Don't pipe on a fellow student unless he gets the most
Don't comb your hair so it stands on end.
Don't wash your hands more than twice a day.
Don't repair a plate for one tooth unless cement won't
Don't fall short on your gold; put in brass.
Graduation is around the corner, and the feeling of
being one of the lucky few to find a profession, of having
the world at my feet as I did upon leaving college is not
there. Instead, I feel empty, cold, insensitive.
I look towards graduation as a newly acquired free-
dom, an opportunity to start living again, maybe even re-
turn to my original element of outdoor life, clean air,
small town living and a general re-evaluation of my goals.
Maybe I'll even regain my sense of humor and pass this
off as a bad joke. The results of the past four years may
prove to be quite rewarding, but I'm not quite sure of that
Roger G. Carbonneau
The Clinic of 1972
(written in 1912)
I've just been to the clinic— the nineteenth of its kind,
At the old Chicago college, near the lake.
It's not the same old building as it was in nineteen nine,—
The new one, with its campus, takes the cake.
I arrived there Monday morning, on the aero, which was late,
I spent more than an hour on the way;
I recalled, that when a freshman, I traveled' cross the State
On the steam cars, and it took half of the day
My little grandson met me— he's a freshman at the school,
And in an aero-cab took me to Denton Hall
He showed me the gymnasium with its dandy swimming pool,
For the students of the college, large and small.
And indeed it is some college, with many halls so grand,
Compared with the old place where we did delve
These halls, it touched me strongly, as I near them did stand,
Were endowed by members of my class— the class of '12.
In recalling the past four years and sitting down to
record these thoughts, a distinction has to be made be-
tween dental school, dentistry, and the con-comitant so-
cial life. Each has its own rewards and regrets.
Dental school is a unique experience of which nothing
in my past life can compare. It is a servitude which has
been enriching, punishing, and to which I have had to
sometimes compromise my values. I have acquired an
outlook on life quite different from that held four years
ago. Now, I, somewhat basta dized, somewhat ambiva-
lent, have lost some of that pure innocents of idealism.
The future of dentistry is impressive. It is one of the few
disciplines that allow creativity, inventiveness, and
coupled with genuine concern for the welfare of man-
kind. Perhaps more than any other endeavor, dentistry
permits one the latitude to discover his abilities and fulfill

felt was right. I would like to see this spirit carried into the
The social life . . . four years of worry, pressure, exams,
aches in the pit of the stomach, rumors, laughs, beers,
the smell of eugenol, open margins, class parties, the
Greeks, late nights, long weekends, lectures, shortcuts
(that never worked) and sometimes, just sometimes, a
feeling of accomplishment and pride. The last is what
makes it all worthwhile.
Real words are not in vain,
Vain words not real;
And since those who argue prove nothing
A sensible man does not argue.
A sensible man is wiser than he knows,
While a fool knows more than is wise.
Therefore a sensible man does not devise resources:
The greater his use to others
The greater their use to him,
The more he yields to others
The more they yield to him.
The way of life cleaves without cutting:
Which, without need to say,
Should be man's way.
Tao Tsu from The Way of Life
"A small town boy goes to the big city to make good".
After attending school in the plains, it was off to famous
Chicago for the ideal education— dentistry. Dental school
turned out to be certainly different than the fantasy
dream. The first year found me living in famous Cicero,
Illinois, the place where a small town boy would dread to
I dreamed of an institution where all people concerned
were truly interested in teaching dentistry to the novice.
Quite a few of the mentioned instructors were present but
it was evident they were not in the majority. The real lack
of communication seemed to lie in the clinical sciences
and as all dental students know, the academic, not the
clinical aspects, are stressed in private practice today.
I would like to thank all instructors and students who
helped in my learning the dental sciences. My wife and I
will never forget all the good times and wonderful friends
we made while in Chicago at Loyola. I am going into the
U.S. Army and will be assigned to N.A.T.O. Command
(SHAPE) near Monsar Brussels Belgium. Carol, Michele,
Jeff and myself will be there for three years so please
stop in on your way through Europe. Our future after that
is uncertain at this time, but I imagine myself in a small
town somewhere in the West or Midwest.
In case any of you, my classmates, of the infamous
Class of 71 , are planning to try to locate me in the future,
I will probably be found in one of two places. The first,
and probably the most likely, is Las Vegas. As is gener-
ally known, I was born with a deck of cards in my hand.
This insatiable desire for games of chance is one of the
vices that I have not been able to overcome. At night you
will probably find me at the black-jack table, pockets bul-
ding with black chips. In the daytime, the other phase of
my dual life will find me hard at work practicing my favor-
ite dental specialty, periodontics. At Loyola I developed a
very deep love for this field, mainly due to the inspiration
of such immortals as Balint Orban, Tony Gums, and Dr.
If I cannot be found in Vegas I will undoubtedly have
given up dentistry to join the pro golf tour. It may not be
generall known, but I am an extraordinary golfer. Affec-
tionately known as the king of the 425 yard drive, I could
soon become one of the Big Three (with a little work on
my short game).
In closing, I would like to thank all of you for many
wonderful memories during these four dreadful years. I
know you will also all join me in a vote of thanks to the
concerned, dedicated, and sincere faculty members of
old LSD., whoever they are.
Thomas W. Creed
The start of a professional career at Loyola began with
a hard freshman year, an artistic sophomore year, a mar-
ried junior year, and a rushed senior year.
Doom seemed to be inevitable in the middle of each
year. The freshman year had the box of useless acrylic
base plates along with the warm water and soft com-
pound. The sophomore year had the end-of-the-year
quick fab bridges and ink pathology drawings. The junior
year had no patients and the denture with cast gold
heals. All Hail the senior year with two baker's bars and
In summary, dental school was a "Memorable" ex-
perience, and I owe all my fond memories to pinochle.
Richard D. Del Carlo
Beware of the man who set out to learn something,
learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before.
He is full of murderous resentment of those who have not
come by their ignorance the hard way.
"Parting is such sweet sorrow," but at the present time
I can't think of too many things I would be sorrowful
My wife Jill and daughters, Marie, Debbie and Beverly,
and I have enjoyed our schooling here, but really haven't
found a home in the big city. Looking back over the past
four years, I think one of the largest adjustments we had
to make was to accept the city life. We later plan to live
in the Rocky Mountain West in a relatively large town,
about ten thousand population.
Fishing, hunting and enjoying the open spaces on a
good horse will be the order of the day; and if there is
time left over, I will have a general practice.
We wish all of you the best in life; but in your confusion
for success, may your foot never get stuck in the stirrup,
your horse stumble in a hole, or you grab the wrong end
of a branding iron.
Kent C. Erickson
Well, never thought I'd see the day. I'd hate to do an-
other four years like that again. It would have been quite
boring if not for our noon hour pee-knuckle games. If
credit was given for the game R.B. and I would come out
with honors. (*M in the class)
In the clinic, endo, crown and bridge, and prostho.,
were the courses that I feel I gained good training. Aside
from this, our dentec days would have been sufficient for
I hope to have a successful practice in Navoto, Califor-
nia, in the next few months after graduation.
The thinning hair and bloodshot eyes marke me as one
of the "older generation," I'm afraid. Since coming to
Chicago, I have doubled the size of my family from two to
four children, gained a few pounds and lost an enormous
amount of sleep.
Dental school has been good for me. I learned to study
as never before and I have been exposed to some fine
instructors and suffered with the rest of the students with
the learning process. When I look back on the past four
years, I appreciate the opportunity to study dentistry and
to work with people for their better health.
For several years I drove long distance truck on the
west coast, then operated a couple of service stations,
then back to truck driving again, so I speak from a van-
tage point of few in the Class of 71. I enjoy dentistry
(even in school) and consider myself fortunate to have

OVERHEARD IN LECTURE:
Blanchett: "Heart patients shouldn't lift anything heavier
than their zipper".
Pitner: "Was that finger I saw a question?"
Smulson: "It's nice to know about the gonads or liver, but
you're never going to fill one."
Malone: "She could eat hot dogs through a barbed wire
Boyles: "Oh doctor, we have cured his thumb sucking,
but now he's masturbating."
Widen: "This kid has a son-of-a-bitch of a mother."

Petrulis: "You have to find a crack surgeon, and that
doesn't mean a gynecologist."
I attended U.C.L.A. from September '61 to June '65
and then U.S.C. School of Pharmacy from September '65
to June '67. My future plans include a M.S. program in
Endodontics at Loma Linda University beginning in Sep-
tember '71 , and then private practice and undergraduate
teaching at a Los Angeles dental school.
I plan on marrying on July 25, 1971, if the Chicago
weather doesn't affect my feet. I feel that these past four
years have been extremely rewarding ones, mostly in
terms of overall education and people to whom I have
grown very close; as far as the overall treatment as a
dental student and human being, I think the four years
left much to be desired.
A very special "thank you" for a very special and won-
derful man who has given me strength when I most
needed it and who has been my inspiration and guiding
light. Thank you, Dr. Smulson; I hope one day I can be
one-half the man and teacher you are.
Funniest thing I can remember: After making my first
suppositories in pharmacy school I was told they were so
grotesque as to look like teeth. After my first carving
freshman year, Dr. Brescia said, "Gentlemen, some of
these carvings look like suppositories."
Allen E. Flans
Loretta, Merrily and I came to Chicago from Clifornia
along with about thirty other members of our class. We
enjoyed much of our experiences and appreciate the
warm associations of good friends that we met in the
class of '71. In spite of many hardships and difficulties
associated with our dental school career, there will al-
ways be a warm spot in our hearts for Loyola.
In the interest of improving Loyola Dental School I
would like to make the following observations and criti-
cisms. Contrary to what we were told at registration our
freshman year, the student is not the prime concern of
the majority of the faculty and administration. Except for
a few sparkling examples the faculty and administration
rule over the student body with intimidation and treat the
student like a juvenile. I was trusted and respected more
on the college level than at Loyola.
It is sad to reflect on the state of the school for three
reasons: first, because it just doesn't have to be that way;
second, because a few excellent instructors and admin-
istrators are labeled with the reputation of the majority;
and third, because the "Loyola brand" of teaching tends
to develop a poor attitude toward dentistry. The tedious
repetition of technical lab procedures trains students for
lab work. How about teaching dental students the prac-
tical application of occlusion principles along with the
reasons why, for such principles?
In spite of the many shortcomings I'm sure that most of
the class of '71 will be a credit to the profession.
Donald M. Foulk
The end of the beginning—
The last four years have been very eventful; more has
happened to affect my entire life than ever before. Fresh-
man and sophomore years bring to mind the extremely
poor facilities Loyola had at the old school, especially for
a class of our size. When one is going through those first
two years, the instructors whom one dislikes seem to
constantly loom menacing in one's consciousness. How-
ever, time seems to blur them out as men like Drs. Gru-
ber, Madonia, Smulson, Kiley, and Rooney stand out as
having been something good. Although the bad is always
there, men like these will always be remembered. Junior
and senior years went by so fast I can't believe that it's
over. I would like to thank the good and helpful instruc-
tors in the clinic for their dedication and willingness to
share their knowledge.
The future holds for me two years in the Army, after
which I hope to return to Los Angeles, California. As of
now I hope to have a general practice in the Northeast
area of Los Angeles. I hope to increase the "Chicano"
population by four. Also, many thanks to my wife Linda
for much help, especially the last year and a half. Thanks
to Loyola for having given me the opportunity to have
gone through this experience.
As freshmen starting through four years of dental
school, it seemed like forever until the time when we
would become seniors. But now as a senior and looking
over these years, it has been but a short time, a very
short time when I consider the experiences, friendships
and challenges we've worked for. Now finally finishing
dental school I feel very fortunate for having had the op-
portunity to spend these past few years with my
To me our class was an individualistic group charac-
terized by a diversity of abilities, intelligences, ambitions
and personalities which undoubtedly helped mature and
well round each of us and give our class the strength ex-
emplified in our senior year, and camaraderie which we
needed to uphold our personal and professional ideas
Looking oack I truly feel confident and proud of each
of my fellow classmates and extend the best of luck to all
for a happy and rewarding career and fulfilling life. Next
year I'll be attending graduate school in periodontics at
Northwestern and eventually plan on practicing in South-
ern California. Even though we'll all be scattered through
the United States, I'll be looking forward to seeing my
friends from Loyola because together only we know what
dental school has been all about, and it will be fun to re-
flect back on what we'll eventually call "the best years of

Like everyone else, I'll be happy to graduate in June. It
has been a long eight years since starting college. In
June my wife Janet, our new baby and I will pack up and
move out to California. We hope to settle in the San Fran-
cisco Bay Region. Presently I do not consider going on
to specialize, but I do enjoy removable prosthetics and I
could possibly lean toward that specialty in the future.
I have enjoyed these last two years at Loyola, espe-
cially the new dental clinic. I am very happy with the edu-
cation I have received here. I honestly feel that it is one
of the finest in the country. For the most part, the faculty
is great. In the near future and with a few changes in ad-
ministrative policy, this will be regarded as the best den-
tal school in the country.
I would like to extend my personal thanks to Drs. Ma-
lone, Smulson, Gerhard, Sommerfeld and Esser and oth-
ers for their unselfish devotion of time to teaching. The
dental school can be proud of them.

The age of dental enlightenment began tour years ago
in an auditorium atop an ancient building. It was ushered
in by what I remember as another December 7, soli-
loquy. This prestidigitation, in retrospect, consisted of a
pledge of help and guidance through the troubled years
ahead by the demi-gods in their white Mount Olympus
gowns. However, as we were to painfully learn, these
demi-gods from atop of Olympus would not condescend
other than to purge the student of his ambition. These
demi-gods' punitive measures consisted of such reward-
ing guidance as, "that is perfect, but do it over", "that is
the most beautiful piece of work I have ever seen, C",
"rotate that tooth just a little bit mesially, lingually, dis-
tally, and buccally, then you are sure of getting a C", or
"the occlusal reduction is perfect, the mesial and distal
are fantastic, and the buccal and lingual are great, how-
ever your hair is too long, D". With such praise, guid-
ance, and encouragement, how could any aspiring den-
tal student help but hunger for the nectar which is
offered by the dental profession to become a true resi-
dent of Mount Olympus.
The delusion, harrassment and mental anguish are
about to terminate. While at this moment another 107
stand at the gates of Mount Olympus patiently waiting for
the magic words, only to be muddered in a whisper,
never to be spoken in a loud tone, to be spoken over
them so that they may also don a white gown and pre-
pare to daunt the next aspiring student.

Aurel E. Goglin, Jr., born June 3, 1945. Dentistry has
been a family profession for three gener-
ations— grandfather, father and uncle.
Married, one daughter and another child expected at
the end of June, 1971. Living in Arlington Heights and
planning to remain in the Chicago area in the immediate
future. Will go into practice with his father in Chicago,
eventually hoping to also open office in suburbs. Forsees
specializing in general dentistry because finds it much
more interesting to pursue a variety of dental services
rather than specializing in a single field.

Here it is, graduation time and yet I still recall that first
day I came to register at Loyola Dental School. I
stopped at the front door, took a deep breath, and
thought to myself, "Well, remember this moment. You
are about to tackle four hard years". Then I walked in
with the ghosts watching me as I passed through the
halls on the way to the large ampitheatre. I remember it
well, but that's about all. The rest is a blur of happen-
ings ... all vague memories with certain of them frozen
and depicted on the pages of this yearbook.
Four years is a large slice out of any man's life. Four
years of cracking books, polishing wax, grinding out
preps, clean white dentinal shavings, scraping calculus,
loss of sleep and golf time, rubber dam and goddam,
centric and ego-centric, and a lot of tales of South
Miami. Now, it is hard to imagine what life is like without
going to school, not having to embark every morning on
the great pilgrimmage from Skokie and returning at
night, and having my gunner's kit and articulator case
sawed off from the ends of my arms. I wonder what it
will be like?
The time for farewell is now upon us. To my instructors
I would like to say, "Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Though you each had your special way of commu-
nication, I am grateful". To my classmates I would like to
say, "Thanks for making these past four years bearable
by suffering with me and finding humor in it. I am proud
to be contained in this volume with you."
I was born in Chicago and raised in the sunshine state
of Florida. I went to Miami Senior High School and then
served four years in the U.S. Navy and was a radarman
second class in C.I.C. aboard the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk. I
traveled around the world, visited the five continents,
and sailed the seven seas while in the U.S. Navy.
I attended the University of Florida and graduated from
the University of Miami with a B.S. While at the University
of Miami, I met my wife who graduated with a B.ED in
mathematics. We were married during our last year of
college. Then we moved to Chicago to attend dental
school at Loyola University where I studied for four
years, and my wife taught mathematics at Niles East High
School for four years.
This June, as my graduation present, my wife is
presenting me with a baby. We will be moving back to
our home in Miami where I will be practicing general
dentistry and soaking up the sun. Although the sunshine
will be plentiful, I am sure that I will see very little of it due
to the fact that my debts are so outstanding to the state
of Florida and the U.S. Government that I will be spend-
ing most of my time working "my balls off" to get out of
At the moment I have a generous offer to enter into a
partnership in Miami. I also have the opportunity to asso-
ciate for a while. The future holds great promise for my-
self and my family, and I am looking forward to many ful-
filling years in my chosen profession.
I feel certain that in the ensuing years all of us who
have gone through what we consider four years in a con-
centration camp at hard labor, will look back upon this
time as the most rewarding and pleasurable period of our
lives. The agonies and frustrations of attaining both clini-
cal and academic excellence are relieved only by a hand-
shake and presentation of a well earned diploma and an
expression of joy at "having made it!" The friends that
my family and I have made, and the experiences we have
shared will be remembered for the rest of our lives. I
hope that graduation will not terminate these friendships
and experiences. I hope to practice in a community, per-
haps in Wisconsin, in which quality dental care is both
expected and appreciated, and to continue my dental
education for many years. I consider continuing educa-
tion a requisite for good dentistry whether it be by exten-
sion courses, seminars or in a graduate program. I regret
that our educational system forces dental schools to be-
come big businesses at the expense of the student and
faculty, but perhaps this will change in time.
I will long remember my years in dental school and will
be content to settle down, raise more children than the
son we now have, and reap the rewards of four hard
years, and thank God that "I made it."
Graduation from dental school marks the culmination
of numerous years of study and personal sacrifice. It is
an appropriate time to realize my obligations to my coun-
try, my profession, and my family.
My tour of service in the Navy begins what will be a life-
long recognition of my duty towards my country. In the
process of earning a master's degree in oral biology and
a specialty certificate, I hope to develop a personal phi-
losophy which is marked by a dynamic concern for man-
kind. To fulfill my obligation to my profession, I plan to
become a positive, constructive, and dynamic member of
a dental school faculty.
My last and most important obligation is to my family. I
plan to use every fiber of my existence to fulfill a happy
marriage, blessed with three or four little Grubers, and ul-
timately eternal salvation for myself and my family.
In a book which commemorates such a noteworthy
achievement, I want to say thanks to those wonderful
people who made it possible— my mother, my father and
my loving wife, Kathy.

A deep look into the future for most of us is quite a
frightening idea, especially Ten years from now when
we do not even know what tomorrow will bring. I am go-
ing to continue my education to get a master's degree in
pedodontics with the intentions of practicing and teach-
ing in a California school. I hope to have a combination
orthodontic and pedodontic practice with the pedodon-
tic aspect of my practice devoted to the handicapped,
and to retarded children in association with hospital
expect my family life to blossom like my dental career.
I hope to have about four children, two boys and two
girls, all healthy and eager to enjoy life. Ellen (my wife)
has brought the greatest joy in my life, and I see in the
future a strong everlasting love that is brought together
by a strong family union.
I hope to be settled in a city near San Diego where the
air is clear and the water near. I look forward to the Cali-
fornia universities putting a dental school on their San
Diego campuses and holding a professorship in
I, like everyone else in our class, hope to be successful
both in dentistry and with a fine family and life.

1971 will certainly be the year of all years for me— the
year, for me, of all freshmen's dreams, graduation! On
May 15, I'll be married! Miss Patti Duffy becomes Mrs.
Gunnell. June brings on the Arizona State Board Exam
. . . four years crammed into three days! Moving from the
crowded, polluted city of Chicago to sunny Arizona.
1971, an exciting and eventful year.
It will all be over, and we'll all be going separate ways.
For me, it will not be a sad parting. These years were dif-
ficult. School was often a traumatic thing. There were
many voids. I hope I can read this in future years and say
I was in the last era of outdated dental education. I surely
hope that the new approach to dental education will
stress quality and understanding of principles rather
than quantity with units and points being emphasized.
Perhaps, too, gold foil will be more appropriately used to
brighten our Christmas trees, not our mouths.
My respect to Drs. Logan, Reardon, Smulson and Ger-
hardt. Best wishes to Mrs. Suranic. Special happiness
and success to classmates Wegiel, Haycock, Hintzen,
Hohl, and Plant.
Let us all realize our fundamental knowledge of den-
tistry and use the future to expand that knowledge, ca-
pably perform our service, and become the best in our
Dental school is almost over, just graduation remain-
ing; but now all of dentistry is ahead. Penny and I have
sacrificed much and will be expecting some satisfactions
and rewards from dentistry.
As I look into the future, the variety of general practice
will always please me. There will be an area of practice
which will be more exciting than other, but right now I
feel that a specialty would be too restricting. Maybe I can
contribute to the betterment of dentistry by improving
some device or technic. My background and degree in
Mechanical Engineering will be at my side.
In about five years, we will move into a house in the
country. We would like some land where the children can
run and play. More children than Jeff and Liesl are de-
sired, but we must wait and see what the future will bring.

As our four paranoiac years of dental school come to a
close, we all breathe a sigh of relief and get philosophical
about four years which we judge to be the hardest of our
lives. We can now look back on the four years more ob-
jectively in an effort to determine why it was we quit den-
tal school 365 times per year and why we now are pre-
pared to begin practicing in certain areas of dentistry
and why we may go through life incompetent in others.
As we consider each department, I am sure we each
have our heroes and scapegoats, but now that we gradu-
ate I am sure that we will all agree that there were some
very enjoyable, humorous, and memorable times along
with the bad. Who can forget having Dean Amaturo ask
us to look at the student on either side of us and then
think that one of the three of us might not be around
come graduation time? Who can forget class meetings,
fraternity functions, cutting class, the Greeks, the variety
shows, being told your student loan won't come through
due to lack of funds, being told an exam had been can-
celled, being told an exam would not be cancelled in
spite of efforts by class officers, worshipping seniors,
being seniors, moving out of the old school, National
Boards, Indianapolis, graduation, and many other choice
experiences too numerous to list?
Suffice it to say that however we choose to use our
four years of dental training, we will never forget them. I
hope to see every member of the Class of 1 971 real soon
and wish each of you and the administration, faculty and
._ staff of Loyola Dental School the best of everything.

It has been a long haul since Freshman year. Even
longer since my years at Brigham Young University. All
that I can say is, thank God it's over. Now I have the
greatest future a man can have, a lovely wife and five of
the greatest kids. I suppose a few more children lie in
the future. My family is my greatest possession, and I
expect it always will be.
In ten years I expect I'll have an M.S. in pharmaco-
logy. To teach is one of the greatest callings a man can
have, and may the Lord strike me down if I ever jag a
The men who have influenced me more than anyone
are William Malone and Ralph Logan. The reason I be-
came a dentist was because I wanted to be like the den-
tists I knew, and these have kept the standard. Their ex-
emplary lives have merited the love and respect of their
I expect my brother, who is in the freshman class, to
do better than I have. Our family will have then occu-
pied a space in this school for seven years. It may be
even longer if my older brother gets accepted here in-
stead of Loma Linda. I hope to retire at about age fifty
and enjoy life a little.
Daniel N. Henderson
Well, 1971 is finally here. It looked like climbing Mt.
Everest when I started college in 1963 and thought to
myself that it would be eight long years, hundreds of
tests, quizzes, and laboratory procedures and thou-
sands of traumatic moments before I would finally attain
my goal of being a doctor. Then there had to be the de-
cision of medicine or dentistry, a difficult one but a de-
cision which I still don't regret. The last four years have
been tough, and at times we were subjected to subjects
and teaching techniques which I'm sure I could never
condone even years from now. But, fortunately I guess,
we seem to repress such infamous things as Freddy,
Ray, the anatomy of the perineum and that last big
hurdle, the Class III foil. I would rather like to remember
some of the friendships and pleasant experiences which
have occurred. Haycock and I are the only two room-
mates in our class who have survived the ravages of
marriage and personality differences. Gunnell and I
have ideas about a partnership in Arizona when the
Navy finally lets me go. Good luck to all and keep
plugging those cavities.

At the moment of this writing I have but a few months
left of my four year sentence as a dental neophyte. On
June 13, 1971, an appropriate date, the keepers of the
great heritage of dental educaiton will grant me full par-
don for all my transgressions and inadequacies, and at
that instant I will be made in their own image and equal to
them in everything but income. This will be a metamor-
phosis more remarkable than the caterpillar which
changes into the butterfly.
My wife Joan, my two children, Lyle and Gretchen, and
myself will probably settle in a medium-sized town whose
inhabitants have never heard of fluoridation so that I can
spend the rest of my life promoting programs to stock the
communal water supply with 1 Vi parts per million of fluor-
ide. I will also promote programs to stock the same wa-
ters with trout because trout with good sound thecodont
teeth will always bite better.

innumerable parties and an equal number of hangovers;
to have some good classes and many poor useless
classes; to meet and survive Craig Holt; to read many
textbooks, some good, many bad; to have some good
professors and more bad ones; to have some good
patients and one or two poor ones; to survive an infinite
number of ARA cheeseburgers and cups of coffee; to re-
make a bridge five times; to dedicate a slide to Dr. La-
done; and, most of all, to just survive what will be remem-
bered as probably the most important four years of my

Before my dental education at Loyola, I graduated
from St. Joseph's College, Rensselaer, Indiana. In my un-
dergraduate education, chemistry, mathematics, and
philosophy were my main areas of interest.
The four years of dental education were filled with var-
ied experiences which I'M sure directed me to continue
in graduate education. I'm very thankful to all of my dedi-
cated teachers for their efforts in my development as a
member of the dental profession and as a fellow human
being. It is my subjective opinion that Loyola is fortunate
in having a number of superior educators, who hopefully
will work in harmony to make Loyola unique in dental
education. I certainly hope that someday in the near fu-
ture, the dental profession will change the present value
system and give overdue financial rewards to these dedi-
Another point that stands out in my mind is the student
involvement with his own education. I believe the student
should be afforded the respect as an adult college gradu-
ate and given greater opportunity to express himself, as
such, without belittling tyrannical directives. Profes-
sionalism, morals, and social standards can never be
forced upon individuals with any longlasting value, but
may be gained from exemplary educators.
Best wishes and much success to all my fellow gradu-
ates, remember our commencement speech. "SENSI-
TIVITY", "RELEVANCE", and "INVOLVEMENT"
A lot has happened in the last four years. Freshman
year as acquainted our fingers to the new experience of
impression compound— lucky we had anatomy lab to re-
store the natural oils back to our skin. Sophomore year I
don't know who should get the award for fastest screw-
driver of operative lab; one thing for sure, it would be a
close contest. And then there was junior year and our
first patients. What we lacked in experience, we sure
made up with enthusiasm. Senior year is the year of the
"great race", the race to get out.
It is really difficult to describe these 1460 days. In a
way you can compare it to a rat in a maze. At first you
bump into all the obstacles, but, later the obstacles don't
change, but you learn to get around them. Now, we are
making it around them for the last few times, all looking
forward to the days following graduation.
I will be taking a rotating internship at Hines V.A. for
the next year. After that I plan to go into private practice.
We have been through a lot. But we have made many
good friends and have had some good experiences

What does graduation mean to a senior dental stu-
dent? It might mean a short stay at Madden Clinic or
some such comparable place; yes, mental health is what
graduation may mean! However, to a select few there is
still another bridge to pass over which could be the straw
that broke the camel's back! State board exams— the
profession's answer to the long awaited strait jacket.
Now, if we can pass through these two barriers without
breaking, we are now ready to meet yet a third challenge
to our mental status— yes, going out to practice what we
have so long tried to learn, no matter how many barriers
were thrown in our paths; and we all know who and what
these barriers have been and will be. Now on graduation

My dental career began in September, 1967. After four
years of joy and terror, I find myself faced with the happy
thought of graduation. We were the last class of the
"gray coats" and I still can remember the dark confines
of Labs A and B. There were the many afternoons play-
ing with agar or with our paint brushes in the abstract art
course of pathology. Then after our sophomore year we
moved to the new school in Maywood. The last two years
were spent in the clinic racing to wait in lines, and having
everybody from the bottom up tell us where our place
was— students. Senior year was a year of fulfilling re-
quirements, pinochle, and golf. Also many teeth had gold
foils hammered into them.
After graduation, I'll spend two years in the Army and
then after that I hope to return to the suburbs of Chicago
with my wife and family.

During his four years in Dental School Frank has been
kept quite busy. He was elected Secretary of the Senior
Class, President of Student ADA., Vice President of St.
Apollonia Guild during his senior year, and received the
American College of Dentists Award. He also put on table
clinics every year at the annual Midwinter Meeting of the
His school work, however, was not the only thing that
kept him busy these last four years. He got married at the
start of his sophomore year to his high school sweet-
heart, Judy, and they have just recently had a baby
daughter, Elizabeth Angela.
Frank will always remember the many hours of work
and study, but more fondly, he'll recall the memorable
anatomy labs with Gerry Malzone, Larry Marchelya, and
the galavanting of the "Gourmet Club" with the Miller's,
Narimatus's, McAllister's, and Malzone's. Nor will he for-
get such comments as "slow down!", "What, more
Prostho?" and others.
After graduation, Frank will enter into the Army for two
years, and upon returning to Chicago, he will complete
his graduate work in Crown and Bridge which began in
January of 1971.

Brothers and Sisters. (Commencement Address by Al Petrulis)
With all the sincerity that I can communicate to you and with the limita-
tions of words to adequately describe my feelings, I thank you for having
honored me with the privilege of being your speaker on this significant
occasion in your lives I hope that my efforts will not fail your
It is becoming increasingly difficult to say goodbye to each graduating
class. In the brief two years that I have come to know most of you. I have
cherished your friendships, I have shared some of your hardships, I have
reioiced in some of your successes, and I was saddened by some of your
failures. I consider myself a very fortunate human being to have been
able to relate to you in such a human way.
I could have come before you today with a familiar, noncontroversial,
canned address of very limited scope pertaining only to our little world of
dentistry; however, I sensed that your class was looking for something
else— something more universally relevant— more appropriate with the
times. I welcome the challenge and echo the brother's phrase "Let's get
(Cont. pg. 65)
In the past two months, I have talked with dental students in the fresh-
man, sophomore, junior and senior classes in an attempt to discover
their areas of major concern or in other word, "Where their heads were
at", regarding their attitudes and impressions of dentistry. I was not sur-
prised to learn that dental students are considerably sophisticated in
their priorities of concern. Most dental students expressed a number of
profound observations and opinions. The maior topics to which dental
students are eager to relate are number one— The dentist's role in social
change, two— the quality of dental education, three— dentistry's respon-
sibility to public health, and four— how they, as dentists, could be more
involved in political and international affairs Of the many stated opin-
ions, three underlying generalizations could be detected:
1. Most Graduates desire a more equitable distribution of dental health
care services among all the citizens of America
2. Most graduates condemn the non-constructive conflicts that they
detect among the various ideological factions within dentistry, and;
3. Most graduates desire an enlargement of the realm of freedom to
adopt life styles of their own choosing that will not jeopardize their
standings with their colleagues within the dental profession.
A sincere desire was expressed to effect changes in these areas of
concern; however, they felt that their goals and aspirations were not
taken seriously by the powers within the dental establishment Sadly,
frustration was too evident.
(Cont. pg. 66)
Consequently among our graduates one can sense a desire to be
taken more seriously, a desire to participate more effectively in decisions
that will effect their lives as dentists and as human beings. They express
a willingness to voice their disapproval of policies that are, in their opin-
ion, unjust or unreasonable at every level whether it be education, poli-
tics, foreign affairs, environmental pollution, race relations of social
change Now can anyone here in this audience find fault with these
In my opinion, the increasing tendanct of youth to voice their objec-
tions and to demand significant changes is a sign of a healthy, in-
novative, productive and progressive profession that can look ahead to a
very promising future of service to our society.
One of the many challenges facing our 1971 graduate is how to find
his role in society where he will be able to function effectively as a dentist
in a life style of his own choosing, yet one that will not offend the commu-
nity resulting in an adverse effect upon his practice, as well as his per-
sonal life. How long should his hair be? Should he continue to sport the
mustache that he was so proud of while a student? Can he wear the
same unconventional clothing that he so freely chose to reflect his per-
sonal tastes? It has been my experience that if you are genuinely kind,
understanding, and sincerely interested in your patients, all but the most
intolerant will detect your sincerity and your mustache and your bell bot-
toms will become insignificant. Patients generally are more sensitive to
the way they are treated than they are to the way you dress or cut your
(Cont. pg. 67)
Now what about the education and training that you have received
here at Loyola? A. S. Neil the distinguished author, editor and educator
who wrote the book Summerhill was asked, "Why do some boys learn
only when made to feel physical pain?" Mr. Neil replied, "I expect that
could learn to recite the Koran if I knew I'd be flogged if I didn't. One
result, of course, would be that I should forever hate the Koran, and the
flogger, and myself" Many of you in the audience harbor animosities
against certain members of the faculty that flogged you mentally to make
you learn dentistry. Some of you in the audience would like me to "rip
off" certain teachers and instructors for the entinty of my address and
undoubtedly some would deserve it. However, to serve |ustice we would
have to mention the many excellent teachers that guided you with pa-
tience, understanding and compassion.
All of you present know who were the good teachers and who were the
bad. It would not be in good taste nor in the spirit of love to which your
generation is supposedly committed, to harrangue inadequate teachers
However, if you feel that a certain educators are unquestionably a detri-
ment to your alma mater, you have the moral obligation to let the admin-
istration know your feelings I would advise you to write a letter to the
administration and explain why you think a particular faculty member
does not serve the best interests of your school. "Do not underestimate
the power of the written word," is a time worn phrase, but it is accurate
Progressive administration welcome comments from their alumni. Do
not hesitate; write the letter tomorrow, but get your diploma today

Now that school is finished we will remember the good
times and forget the bad times (jags, cutthroats, pop
quizzes, etc.)- We all made those friendships which hope
will last but will probably fade in time except for a few.
What a shame after spending four years so close with the
same problems, fears, worries and happy moments.
I must be nuts, but I actually enjoyed these four years.
Those good times eating out with the Maggio's, the Nari-
matsu's, and the McAllister's. Those all night study ses-
sions with Mazzola using my notes. And all those days
and days and days listening to Marchelya's problems.
Those days jagging Dankey about something called "A
Woonsocket". I think it's a birth defect. The best thing of
the four years was my daughter, Melissa.
What about next year? Two years with the Air Force at
Plattsburg AFB, N.Y. What then? Into practice with my fa-
ther in Olney, Illinois.
Good health and much success to all of 71.
I will soon be 28 years old and have been married for
2'/2 years to Anne. I was graduated from high school in
1961 with a major in baseball and a desire to become a
dentist. Following graduation I spent several years in
College at both branches of the University of Illinois and
Roosevelt University, finally graduating from the latter
with a B.S. degree in microbiology, and also majoring in
psychology and minoring in chemistry.
While in high school I played baseball for four years
and during my last year our team went to the Illinois High
School Association finals before losing to the state
It was in college that I developed a great love for tennis
even though I did not play organized tennis although I
did play intramural football and baseball.
After graduation my wife and I will spend two years
working for Uncle Sam and after that we hope to begin a
successful general practice either in the Chicago area or
the Los Angeles area.
My secret ambition was to become an astronomer.
Ten years from now, Wes, the first in his family to go
through professional school, may be back in school
studying a specialty such as oral surgery or endodontics;
but right now as a senior, his main scholastic goal is to
see Loyola's doors closing behind him as he runs out
with his diploma clutched in his claws! Since absence
makes the heart grow fonder and all those cliches, ten
years from now may well see Dr. Wes regaling a couple
of adopted children as well as one of his own with stories
about dissected bodies suddenly strange growths of ris-
que notes. Surely in ten years his memories of studying
will be multiplied ten-fold, and that awful sophomore year
when he smashed the car windshield as he thought
about having to repeat that very wonderful year will have
become a pleasant memory instead of the nightmare it
seemed at the time. If he's not back in school, Wes may
well be practicing in Alaska and enjoying its clean air,
fishing, and hunting.
Some of Wes' plans for his own office are liberal uses
of colors, designs in an effort to perk up the usual hospi-
tal white. As Wes roars around whatever town in Alaska,
Illinois or Florida in his Volkswagen or Carmen Ghia, he
will, without doubt, think about the day he returned from
pheasant hunting to open Loyola's letter of acceptance
to dental school. And after all the hasseling and exam-
inations have been long forgotten, that day will be one of
the best memories.

I went to undergraduate school at Boston College
where I received a B.S. in biology. I'm originally from the
Boston area and plan to go back there to practice after
serving two years in the Navy.
I plan to get married in July to a Northwestern Univer-
sity hygiene graduate. We met here in Chicago while I
was in school.
While at Loyola I was a member of Delta Sigma Delta in
which I served as president my senior year.

To be able to reflect the past years gives one a sigh of
relief— just think four years seemed so long and now it is
coming to an end. At first I entered school with appre-
hension but enthusiasm, then later with only the thought
of making it through then finally the ambition and desire
to make something out of the four years at dental school.
During my last two years of school I got married. My
wife, Jean, and I found a reasonable apartment in Forest
Park and married life began. There were also other great
experiences of the past, such as junior year in the clinic
(shudder), being treasurer of Xi Psi Phi Fraternity, and
treasurer of the Guild of St. Apollonia. Money seems to
gravitate my way, or is it vice versa?
The future includes the Army, hopefully overseas with
my family for three years and then back to the Chicago
area suburbs to open a practice or to go on to graduate
school for a pedodontic specialty. We hope to have a
brother or sister for Kevin by that time and be living in
comfort in suburbia.
The future is promising; the past and present have
never been that bad. I graduate feeling I have left my
mark at Loyola Dental School and contributed a little to
the perpetuation of its activities.
And those of you who become educators yourselves remember the
words of AS. Neil. Do not be the flogger that causes the student to hate
dentistry, the flogger and himself.
Now I would like to attempt to place this graduating class in proper
historical prospective. A recent series of articles in the Chicago Daily
News referred to a portion of this generation as the alternative society At
the fringes of this society are some real freaks who thrive in drug com-
munes, tripping on all sorts of uppers and downers, and have little or no
regard for the established square society. In contrast, the majority of the
alternative society of you do not participate in drug abuse, so not indulge
in unrestricted sexual license, condemn bomb throwing and avoid vio-
lence in the streets. They are a more sincere and significant group and
they are challenging the very moral foundation of the established order,
not only in America, but throughout the world. This dedicated, this re-
solved group is acting as our nation's conscience; it has made up of
young dentists, lawyers, housewives, physicians, teachers, accountants
and ministers. They condemn racism, they criticize unresponsive in-
stitutions, they denounce pseudo-patriotic flag waving, they question
foreign policy, they have worthwhile goals, they are well informed, they
are our hope for the future. A great many of this graduating class are
members of this group
Permit me to describe what I feel are a few relevant observations re-
garding the origins of our alternative society of youth. They are the prod-
uct of a phenomenon that historians, sociologists, psychologists, anth-
ropologists and all other behavoral scientists are trying to comprehend.

D.D.S. soon to be? My loving wife, Linda, and I look for-
ward to this day with great expectations. Loans to repay?
We have lots of those too. Teeth down the drain, hours
of foils, dentures that didn't fit, midnight oil burned, these
and many more memories will forever live vividly in our
thoughts as we think of our four years at Loyola. Friends
we have made will always live in our thoughts. But now
we must look to the future and all that it will bring. My
wife always said that she would be pregnant at gradu-
ation and to this end we have succeeded.
We look to our upcoming service in the U.S.A.F. with
anticipation of further knowledge to be gained and more
skills to be attained. After the service we look to the pos-
sibility of a practice in Boston, Massachusetts with my
comrade in crime Joe Morelli and his beautiful wife to be,
Linda and I wish success to all and a most profitable
and rewarding life in the future. And in closing let us all
remember those hallowed words of wisdom, "Don't Let
The Bastards Get You Down."

Ten years from now I would like to find myself happy,
successful, and out of Chicago. I would like to find enjoy-
ment in my work as a dentist, then come home to a big,
happy house with a big yard for my two children, and the
others I'll adopt. I hope I'll own my own plane by then
and fly whenever to wherever I want. I want to be able to
grab my wife and take off for a vacation every couple of
I want to have a long, happy, successful life, be good in
my work and my play, and die before I'm senile.
The first Russian Sputnik jolted this planet as did the destruction of the
Lusitania, the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, the incineration of
Hiroshima. These events caused cataclysmic reactions that wretched
our fragile globe to its very core. Similarly the Soviet surprise stunned
our nation and the free world just as profoundly. Educators, politicians,
community leaders at every level began to panic at the obvious advances
that the Soviet Union had made in its educational system. We here in
America reacted with great haste to analyze, reorganize, modernize and
accelerate our educational system from preschool through grad school.
Budgets for the physical sciences were funded by congress with unques-
tioning generosity. School boards across the length and breadth of the
land were jolted out of complacency and adopted radical changes in
curriculum and teaching methods to meet the crisis. And the victim of all
this frenzy was the youth with us here today. He was the innocent and
unwitting recepticle of our nation's fears and its mad efforts not only to
catch up with the Russians, but to surpass them. We prodded him,
threatened him and we expected from him more accomplishments than
were ever expected of youth in any past generations of Americans.

Well, here we are only three weeks away from having
that magic wand waved over our heads and assuming
the title of Doctor. Where have the four years gone?
Freshman year it was you and your two claws against
that mysterious substance called wax. Everywhere we
turned it was wax. Fred Pacer and his magic teeth set in
those beautiful works of art called bite rims. Or it was Dr.
Smulson carving mysterious looking suppository-like
structures out of block wax called teeth? And then there
were the classes! Would lectures ever end? Sophomore
year arrived and it was still crazy Fred, only this time he
had two new members of the team. That Neo-Nazi Ray
Henneman and Dr. Kosher himself them team of Harris
and Schwartz. Around and around we went with more
classes manual dexterity exercised we actually thought
had something to do with the practice of dentistry.
Next thing we knew we were all standing on the clinic
floor in our bright shiny new white gowns and there this
guy, the silver fox, screaming his head off about how to
make your canines rise. Into the clinics we went scrap-
ing, drilling, and scared to death.
The next thing we knew we were seniors. We were just
as amazed as they were. Now the end was in sight. All we
had to do was to find a way around a small fellow with a
gray suit and some army officer on the third floor. Some-
how we will all made it just as the hundreds that have
gone before us have made it.
Looking back on it all, we have a fine education
through all the good and bad.

It's been a tremendous grind the past four years, with
everything reaching a zenith this year. If I can make it
through my wedding on June 5, graduation on June 12,
state boards on June 16 and joining the Navy on July 6, I
won't have another big event for at least nine months. It's
been a good four years, but I hope it's better after this.
I'm glad I've gone through Dental School, but wouldn't
go through it again for a Navy assignment on the Califor-
But alas, the result was something unexpected. In our fury to fill skulls
with facts and figures about space and science, we did not anticipate
that those same skulls would become more aware, more critical, more
vocal in questioning our nations priorities. The Frankenstein monster ap-
peared: long hair, home rolled cigarettes, bell bottoms. Dylan, Rebellion,
Timothy Leary, communes, liberation. Should we really have been sur-
prised? True we made great strides in the so-called space race but we
were losing in the head race. We managed to produce a more informed
sensitive, activist youth that did not hesitate to challenge elements of our
own political and educational systems which they recognized as wrong
The Preamble to the People from The 1971 White House Conference on
Youth best exemplifies the concern of our young:
To the People
"We are in the midst of a political, social, and cultural revolution. Un-
controlled technology and the exploitation of people by people threaten
to dehumanize our society. We must reaffirm the recognition of life as the
supreme value which will not bear manipulation for other ends."
While the older side of the generation and missle gap remained up
tight about our military, the younger side became more concerned about
our morality— not only the morality of the churchman and his religion but
also, and perhaps more significantly, about the morality of the politician
and his government Robert Kennedy recognized this youthful concern
for a more moral world. In his book, To Seek a Newer World, he stated:
(Cont. pg. 80)
"Thus to achieve the vital sense of possibility, to take up the challenge
our young pose to us, we must remember that idealism and morality— in
politics, and in the conduct ot our lives— are not just a hope for the fu-
ture, and must not be a thing of the past. Even in their style of total es-
trangement, many of our youth do propose to improve, and not abandon
Youth is crying from their guts for a more moral world, a world free of
hypocrisy, a world free of prejudice, a world free of double standards of
justice, a world free of war, a world free to be free!
The rebellious nature of this generation has been blamed on young
mothers raising their kids according to the bible of Dr. Spock. Personally
I disagree with this oversimplification, because in my household my wife
went to Dr. Spock only to help identiy diaper rash and the proper se-
quence for toilet training. I am sure that Dr. Spock is quite flattered and
bewildered by the thought that he could have so profound an effect on a
generation of America's youth. The entire nation must assume responsi-
bility for what has happened to the turned-on generation. This gener-
ation was pressured more than any other in our nation's history. Our el-
ders cannot fully comprehend the effects of the tension, anxiety and
frustration that has accompanied youth in its attempts to meet our de-
mands. Turning-on to the tranquility of drugs is understandable, notcon-
donable, but understandable. Witness the sad experiences of our boys
(Cont. pg. 84)
My four years at Loyola have been memorable. I will
never forget Dr. Smulson's multi-media lectures, Dr Ma-
lone's fine lectures and tremendous interest in the stu-
dent, Dr. Nehls' hands, Dr. Harris' sarcasim, and those
are only a few of the men I think are excellent instructors.
There is of course Dr. Madonia who is a good instructor,
but a lousy human being. Something, sometime, made
him into a self-styled S.S. storm trooper— slightly over
weight. Because of this, he has more students that hate
his guts than I thought possible. Him I'll never forget— I
have nightmares about him.
As for myself, I plan to take life easy for a couple of
years, sort of a period of recuperation. I hope to start
with a while in Europe followed by weeks of only two
days a week working and the rest chasing young ladies
on the Southern California beaches, followed by many
trips to Mexico and hopefully, around the world within
five years. I have decided that the idea of saving for old
age is crap. I'm going to do my living while I'm still young
enough to enjoy it. After 26 years of grief in this school
I'm forced into retirement from the world for a
while— Europe on a motorcycle and hopefully a year or
two practicing in Switzerland.
All in all I'm super glad it's over— from the rat infested
Psi Omega house to the f-u Star handpieces— God damn
I'm glad it's over.
Goodby, school! After 21 odd years of school or so, it
is going to be a good feeling to finally be out. The time
has been long and the work has been hard, but the sacri-
fices will hopefully pay off in the end.
At last there will be an opportunity for me to determine
my own destiny. For too long school has dictated my life.
Life, especially the last four years, has been a series of
memorable experiences, both good and bad, and even
some unusual ones. The pressures of exams, work dead-
lines, and other things caused many nightmares. On the
other hand, there were many enjoyable memories that
will last for a long time and friends made that will last for
a lifetime. Everyone's goal in life is to be happy. I intend
to enjoy myself and life, and to make the practice of den-
tistry an enjoyable lifetime occupation.
The next couple of years for me will be spent in the
army and I intend to make the best of that. It should be
an 8 to 5 job that will bring in money instead of some-
thing that often lasts longer than 8 to 5 and costs you
money. I intend to create a little excitement for myself by
doing some traveling, more drinking, a lot more loving,
and maybe get married someday when the excitement

Looking back on the last several years spent in dental
school, it seems like a lifetime of frustration and work. In-
terspersed with hours of waiting in line and getting the
run around there have been times of co-operative in-
structors such as Dr. Marzuk and helpful staff members.
Over the years the faculty has remained fairly con-
stant—good instructors leaving in disgust with a few new
ones to replace the m. The staff of the school has im-
proved with time and this helps to make our stay a little

with their drug problems in Viet Nam. Seeking meaningful, uncon-
ventional sexual relations is an attempt to relieve the anxiety that young
people experience in an impersonal society— a society that had belea-
guered them with the drive to excell, frightened them with the threat of
nuclear annhiliation and criticized them for the style of their lives. The
noted historians Will and Ariel Durant places our changing morality in a
more accurate perspective than by simply blaming Dr. Spock for the
change In their book, "lessons of History," the Durants Say:
"So we cannot be sure that the moral laxity of our times is a herald of
decay rather than a painful or delightful transition between a moral
code that has lost its agricultural basis and another that our industrial
civilization has yet to forge into social order and normality."
Whatever the case may be, please have compassion for our youth who
have to make the transition.
Finally, here we stand today— young dentists that managed to filter
through the environmental hazards here briefly mentioned. Now, here is
my message for the future: I give three words— Relevance, involvement
(Conl. pg. 86)
I really didn't understand a lot of what has happened in
the last four years, probably never will. It was a series of
hills and valleys; some fantastic high points and some
points so low that they defy description. It's been quite a
ride on the ol" Loyola Dental roller coaster, but I'm sure
glad it's over. I've learned a lot.
All I want to do is move to the Colorado mountains with
my wife and kid and start doing some serious livin'.
Relevance: Exert a sincere effort to maintain a relevance to changing
ideas. Do not stop growing intellectually as well as professionally. Al-
ways keep yourself in proper prospective to developing social trends as
they unfold in our nation's history. Thoreau said it thusly:
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is be-
cause he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he
hears, however measured or far away."
Heed the words of thoreau's— Remain relevant to the music of the dif-
Involvement: Once you have established your practice, get involved in
the total community around you Most importantly get involved in orga-
nized dentistry. Join the societies and above all attend the meetings and
make your views known. If you do not participate actively, then the pol-
icies of your profession will be formulated by a small group of men whose
ideas will lack youthful idealism, vigor and appropriateness.
Sensitivity: Do not restrain yourself from sharing in your brother's and
sister's conflicts with reality. Grief and tragedy strikes everyone. Main-
tain a willingness to assist, a capacity to forgive. Reach out and touch,
communicate; regard your fellowman first.
(Cont. pg. 90)
The last four years have gone by fast, but the ex-
periences I have had and the people I have known will
always linger in my memory.
Freshman year when I first saw the old school I could
not believe that such a structure could still be stand-
ing—until I saw the ZIP house where I was to live that
year. The ZIP house was condemned for six years before
I moved in. The ZIP freshman smoker was extremely edu-
cational considering we were taking gross anatomy that
year. I will never forget prosthetics. I was half way
through my freshman year before I realized that prosthet-
ics had something to do with dentures, not a method of
keeping warm in the winter by dipping our hands in hot
Sophomore year was another memorable time. Crown
and bridge I thought was a course on how to deal with
psychotic patients until the instructors introduced them-
selves as doctors.
Junior year when we finally made it to the clinic, we
didn't have much time to work on patients because we
were too busy running down to Mr. Hanko to get our slow
speed handpieces fixed.
It is now finally senior year and when I look back on it
all, I realize that a dental education really prepares you
for handling problems of the rugged world we will be part
of because if you can handle dental school, you can
I would like to thank all the instructors that have been
fair and dedicated to teaching the students. I also wish
all my fellow classmates good luck in whatever they do. I
also wish to thank my grandmother whose kanadelatkas
gave me the energy to cope with my dental school edu-
cation. Most of all I would like to thank my mother and
father whose love and encouragement (and money) have
made what I was yesterday, am today, and will be tomor-
row. I am more grateful than they can imagine.
Well, I made it. The four years sure went fast, now that
I look back, but while I was going through it was a differ-
ent story. The name "Soc" will bring back good memo-
ries also, but thank God no one at home knows me by
that name! Doc Soc doesn't sound too professional!
I'll always remember the five weeks it took me to get an
impression in freshman prostho and the one that was fi-
nally accepted was the very first one that I took or is it
made! One thing that the first two years of dental school
proved to me is that I never want to go through them
again! And then there was the clinic! I remember the first
few months running from one department to another and
in the end still not knowing where the h I was! An-
other thing I learned in the clinic which I never knew was
possible is that a gutta percha temporary is good for
There were some great laughs in the past four years
and I'll never forget them, nor will I forget the great
friends I've made in these years. I hope these friendships
will be permanent. I'd like to give a special thanks to my
parents for all the encouragement, love, and under-
standing they gave me over these past four years.
Good luck to all you guys!

I would like to end with a reading from the works of the philosopher-
poet, Kahlil Gibran, that I think very appropriate:
"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of life longing for itself.
They come through you, but not from you.
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts.
You may house their bodies, but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you
Cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you,
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows Are sent

As I round the turn and enter the last lap in my race to
finish my dental school requirements, I have become
acutely aware of the need for a better system of instruc-
tion and educational techniques in not only Loyola, but
all dental schools.
To all my fellow classmates I urge you to look upon
your four years of dental school as more than just an
education in the art and science of dentistry, but rather
as a short exposure to the ups and downs, the good and
bad experiences that life can offer to you and to enjoy
the good times and to search for the good that the bad
times have hidden in themselves. Make the very best you
can out of your failures so that they will not stifle your en-
thusiasm to continue your efforts with an unbiased atti-
tude and a knowledge that through your failure others
may learn, prosper and succeed. This attitude is indeed a
tribute to man's humanity and generosity toward his fel-

LOYOLA DENTAL GOODBYE SERENADE
With schizoid wonder
I ponder a schizoid world
Or is it just this town
Casting its giant shadow on everything
Friends say the effect of it leaves
After six months or so
Yet the subtle insanity is still perpetrated
Unchecked, with "God" on its side
Fragments of their good intent
Are blurred like stars on a cloudy night
The overcast is much too thick
For most to get anything from the light
Now it seems it is almost done
This awesome, burdensome, nagging chore
So, so many are now allowed to be "free"
To covet and support those who wage war
But how can I condemn them
Since many are known so well
That I confuse them with me, and hell
We each have to find our own way
But the way, my friends, has not yet been found
To fulfill the fantasies that are constantly drowned
By pettiness, greed, and poor intent
While our good capabilities, encased in cement
Sink to the bottom, still wet
So as men our task must be to dredge up the sunken
areas of ourselves that will allow us to progress from this
point in history to a time when love, peace, and human
truth can be realized and prosper.
I would like to thank my wife Mary Dawn for the sup-
port she has given me during school. We are ex-
pecting our first child in mid-April, '71. I received a
B.S. from Loyola at Los Angeles in 1967, along with a
commission in the U.S.A.F. I Graduated as a Dis-
tinguished Military Cadet.
I will be continuing at Loyola in endodontic after
which I will go on duty for four years. I will eventually
begin civilian practice in Texas, Oregon or
How do you summarize four years of dental school for a
yearbook? It's just not possible. There are some things,
however, for which no pictures are needed. How could I
ever forget the day I first saw the "old" dental school. It
looked like one of the old mills in Manchester, N.H. My im-
age of dental school fell to an all time low. But once classes
started, you were much too busy to worry about images.
There truly was not enough time in the day to do all that
was expected of you. Gross anatomy had to be the domi-
nating academic challenge during that first year. In addition
to the didactic part of the course, there was that wonderful
lab. After leaving the lab it would take two days for the smell
to go away. Well, at least I wasn't crowded on the subway.
But then came sophomore year and promises of moving
into the new dental school. It took the administration an-
other year to fulfill that promise. Sophomore year was the
year of Dr. Grizamore and his water paintings. My father
had Dr. Grizamore for pathology when he went to Loyola;
so you can imagine— well, enough said.
Junior year was now here and we were finally at the new
school. It was now time to switch from the dentek to biting,
bleeding patients. My first patient turned out to be a carious
exposure. Well, you can't learn to swim until you jump in.
Senior year, I was a veteran. A whole year and some
twenty-odd patients under my belt. One more year to go.
How did I ever make it this far? Now that it's over, I can look
back and see how much fun senior year has really been.
This past year I have made some very close and hopefully
lifelong friendships; Bill Asbury, Rich Salvatore, Bill Sum-
mers, Bob Strug, Terry Thomas— just to mention a few.
None of us will ever forget Diana's Grocery or the parties at
I owe a great deal to a number of people for the educa-
tion I have received here; for I believe some of our instruc-
tors to be the best anywhere. I can't say enough about Dr.
Smulson— the most energetic educator ever, and the list
goes on— Dr. Gowgiel, Dr. Malone, Dr. Dawson .
But the two that I owe the most to are my parents. For
without their love and understanding, none of this would
have been possible. To say thank you is not enough; but I
don't think anything could express my appreciation. I only
wish I could put their names on my diploma.
Dental school has been a very trumatic experience that I
wouldn't want to go through again. Yet four years in Chi-
cago have been a great experience that I'll never forget.
Soon I'll leave this town and return to Seattle, Washington,
and assume the role of a mild-mannered dentist, with no
one suspecting the things I've endured, tolerated, and
My first assignment will be as an intern at the University
of Washington Hospital in Seattle. There I hope to further
some of my aspirations of involvement with the handi-
capped patient. Even with the debts of four years of dental
school looming over my head, I don't feel the urgent need
to accumulate instant wealth from my profession. Right
now I am idealistic enough to want to seek personal in-
volvement with people as a fitting reward for services ren-
dered, but the day may come when my responsibilities of
which I have none now, will compel me to seek fame and
fortune as a dentist. My hope is that I shall retain my sanity
enough to travel an intermediate road between fulfillment of
wealth and idealism in my profession.
To my classmates I want to leave a few words that I've
"Isn't it strange that princes and kings
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings
And common people like you and me
Are builders for eternity?
Each is given a bag of tools, a shapeless mass,
A book of rules,
And each must make, ere time is flown,
A stumbling block, or a stepping stone."
I hope each one of you is a maker of "stepping stones."
Most of all I wish you love and peace, for that's what it's all

I GOT THE JUMP DOWN TURN AROUND PICK A
BALE OF DENTAL SCHOOL BLUES
by David Wadler
After four years at Loyola, I'm a Dentist, cha, cha. cha.
I joined Psi Omega fraternity during my freshman year while
living in the fraternity house. My senior year I was elected vice
president of the fraternity. I expect to specialize in fixed prostho-
dontics. I plan on having two children, by my wife, and perhaps
adopting one or two others.
I will take up sculpture as a hobby using. old dental equipment
as a raw material. My masterpiece will be the final resting place
of two Star handpieces and will be entitled, naturally, Star of
While in dental school, I researched composite resin dental
restorative materials which resulted in my first publication as a
I think I'll miss my verbal sparring sessions with Kei Narimatsu
and Frank Maggio.
I think I may settle in Alaska to practice, which in retrospect
sounds ridiculous considering the amount of abuse I have
heaped upon Chicago for its weather; but I think Alaska is a
growing area which offers many opportunities for practice of
dentistry as well as recreational possibilities. I've been so busy at
my studies that I have had little time to participate in any of my
favorite sports, snow and water skiing, neither have I done as
much camping and fishing as I would like, but I think Alaska is
the place to start catching up on what I've missed.
Roger D. Wayman
Along with the study and hard work encountered during
the past four years, many fond memories will remain with
me. From the old med. center frat. parties, Rush Street, 139
N. Pine, "L" train on a cold morning, S.O.P., Indy 500, fish-
ing the Kankakee, my lucky number "442" to that final sig-
nature out of the clinic were days which will always bring a
smile to my face. Best of luck to all the great guys in the
Class of 71.
I can remember the day that first letter from Loyola ar-
rived, carrying with it the news that was to change my life
more completely than anyone could ever have anticipated.
First of all, I've gotten myself so far in debt— well, it's a lot
more money than I've ever seen before; but hopefully that
debtedness will be ended a few years after graduation. So
much for that change.
Another change is an obvious one, that of our training
and the consequent new position in society that we will take
because of this training.
The third change is quite a major one and will most assu-
redly alter my entire life. I found my future wife because of
dental school, that alone has made this "endurance test"
worthwhile. After the service, Joy and I plan to settle in Cali-
fornia or Arizona, where yet we don't exactly know.
The friendships I've made at this school have also
changed me, helped me and hurt me. Imagine the effect
what with Yamanaka on one side and Weigel on the other.
In any event, these past two years have been different, in-
teresting, stimulating, exhausting, degrading, informative
and frustrating, but I'm a Dentist and that's what is

Dentistry of the Future
(written in 1913)
Realizing that this topic is one about which volumes might be
written, and one to which it is difficult to do justice, and still
keep the interest of the reader, the writer will only consider what
he believes to be the important points, and something of their
bearing socially and professionally on dentistry.
Dentistry of the future will find men devoting a portion of their
time to public clinical work, for which they will be compensated
as well as from their private practices. The coming of the free
dental clinic has been forecast by prominent members of the
profession, and hardly a month passes that the periodicals do
not contain one or more articles on this subject.
One worthy of mention is the article written by George Edwind
Hunt, M.D., D.D.S., of Indianapolis, Ind. which appeared in the
February number of the Dental Review. The doctor ably dis-
cusses the future necessity of this work, and the article is inter-
esting to men in the profession, and should be of vital concern to
Another source by which this movement receives an added
impulse is through the cooperation of the men in the medical
profession. Horce Flectcher has proved that a thorough masti-
cation of food is absolutely necessary to maintain a perfect
physical condition. Most physicians realize this fact, and that
this is the starting point on which those who are broken in
health must build to bring themselves back to a normal condi-
tion; hence it follows that they must turn to the dentist many
times more in the future than in the past
Along with the crusade of the white plague, which is on na-
tional importance, the public is being awakened to the other hy-
gienic problems, and among these is an important one— oral hy-
giene. Rich and poor alike realize that they must take care of
their teeth, and as the children of the poorer classes will not be
able to afford the luxury of private professional services, some
plan must be devised for their benefit. What will be the out-
come? Just this: When the demands become strong enough the
municipalities will have to take action, and the free dental clinic
As yet it is difficult to say along what lines this problem will be
finally worked out. It seems that every article written on this sub-
ject conveys the idea that private clinics, or those which have
been fostered by the profession alone, with no help from the
commonwealth, have been unsuccessful for several reasons.
First, because it was impossible to make the people see the ne-
cessity of taking care of the children's teeth; second, because
of the fact that the idea was new; and third, because the work
was unsystemized, and finally, because the men who put their
efforts forward were several years ahead of their time.
However, this movement is already under way and is gaining
the support of many prominent men throughout the country. Its
cornerstone will have been laid when the "Forsythe Memorial"
at Boston, Mass., is completed. This free clinical hospital for
children has an endowment of some three million dollars, and
will afford the profession the first opportunity to show what can
be done in this line.
A word or two might be said as to what this development in
the field of dentistry will mean to the coming practitioner and
the future of the dental student. The practitioner of tomorrow
will have a larger field in which to work. People in all walks of
life will come to realize that an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure, and will be willing to pay larger fees for prophy-
lactic treatments and consultations. As the children grow up
they will more fully appreciate the services of the dentist and we
will have gained one point towards making more efficient men
and women. People will require more of the dentist of the future,
and it will be necessary for him to fit himself to serve them bet-
ter. Many believe that this will require an additional year to the
course, but upon careful considerations this seems unneces-
sary; for. if a student applies himself diligently to his work
through the three years he spends in college, he will be well fit-
ted as a dental surgeon when he graduates.
Finally, the professional and social standing of the dentist is to
be considered. It is generally conceded that the standard of
the profession will be raised with the establishing of the free
clinics in the same degree that the medical profession was
helped by the free medical clinics. The physician and dentist
working in harmony must bring the layman to a better apprecia-
tion of our efforts. Future research work on conditions of the
oral cavity, and their relation to the health of the body, will be a
great field for us, as the work of the past has brought the recog-
nition of this fact that the dentist is indispensable.
In conclusion, the question of our social standing is one
which almost answers itself. Anyone who proves' by his worth
that he is necessary to the community will always be respected.
However, the dentist, or better, the student of today, for he is
the dentist of tomorrow, must remember that the social status is
up to him, and that he can make it whatever he chooses. The
practicing of dentistry by honest, hard-working men, will com-
mand the respect of the public, but the slipshod "anyway to get
the money" practitioner will only be a detriment to the profes-
sion. Therefore, let us keep foremost in our minds in years to
come this thought, "That it is up to us."

"It's unwise to pay too much — but it's worse to pay too little. When
you pay too much ycu lose a little money — that's all. When you pay too
little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was
incapable of doing the thing it was bought for, the common law of
business balance prohibits paying little and getting a lot. It can't be
done honestly. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to allow a
little for the risk you run, if you do that, you will have enough to pay
for something better." — Ruskin
