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 
you. 



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- 
sert gold. 

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 
preceeds you. 

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 
value. 

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.

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 
field. 

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 
Windy City. 

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.

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 
way. 

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 
part-timer. 

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 
cherries.

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 
D.D.S.'s.

RULES OF THE CLINIC 
(1913) 
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 
gold. 

Don't comb your hair so it stands on end. 
Don't worry. 

Don't wash your hands more than twice a day. 
Don't repair a plate for one tooth unless cement won't 
hold it. 
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 
right now. 

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 
his ambition. 

There is a new breed entering dentistry. Our class was 
the first yo refute the "old ways", to hold out for what we 
felt was right. I would like to see this spirit carried into the 
profession. 

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.

"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 
be from. 

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. 
Feldman. 

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.

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 
Garella Gums. 

In summary, dental school was a "Memorable" ex- 
perience, and I owe all my fond memories to pinochle.

"Parting is such sweet sorrow," but at the present time 
I can't think of too many things I would be sorrowful 
about leaving. 

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.

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 
graduation. 

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 
this opportunity.

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."

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.

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 
colleagues. 

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 
and ideals. 

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 
our life."

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.

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 
debt. 

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. 

Harold Goodman 





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 
dentistry. 

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 
pedodontics. 

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 
profession.

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 
student. 

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 
students. 

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.

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. 

As always,

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. 

Craig W. Holt 





Much has happened since that day in August, 1967, 
when I received a telegram asking if I would accept a po- 
sition in the Class of '71. I've managed in that time to go 
through four apartments and five roommates; to survive 
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 
life. 

Somehow during that four years I found time to meet 
and marry a wonderful woman who thinks she can put up 
with me, and hopefully we will return to New England 
near Cape Cod to set up a practice and raise a large 
family.

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- 
cated professionals. 

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 
worth remembering.

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 
everyone (?) shake hands, let bygones be bygones? 

And now a special thanks to those who we all know in 
our hearts tried and, I believe, did give us an excellent 
education!

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 
A.D.A. 

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 
expectations. 

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 
it on!"

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.

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 
attitudes? 

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 
hair.

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 
champions. 

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, 
Nancy. 

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 
months. 

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. 

Thanks Loyola.

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:

"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 
society." 

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

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 
dies down.

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 
easier. 

Looking forward in five years, I hope to have a general 
practice growing more established in a small town in 
northern Illinois or in a Chicago suburb.

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 
and sensitivity

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- 
ferent drummer. 

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 
water. 

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 
handle anything. 

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 
eleven months. 

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!

Looking back on 20 years of schooling, I am amazed 
that we've been indoctrinated and not taught to think. 
Schools exist only to channel people into niches in so- 
ciety, not to teach them to think. A thinking population is 
dangerous. 

I would hope that the quality of life is substantially up- 
lifted in the years to come. I give the world another ten 
years to either solve the many problems confronting it, or 
else we all shall perish. I hope that we shall be here in ten 
years to look back on these predictions. 

I would like to be looked upon as a visionary of a new 
order rather than a chronic complainer of the old order. 

My creed is taken from the late Robert Kennedy's 
eulogy: 

"Some men see things as they are, and say why. 

I dream dreams and say why not!" 

These words serve to guide my life and I hope those of 
many more people.

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 
forth. 

Let your bending in the Archer's hand be for gladness. Thank You. 
(standing ovation— Ed.) 

Al Petrulis we thank you for this outstanding address. We too cannot 
express what our hearts have felt.

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- 
low man.

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 
Washington.

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 
my apartment. 

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 
experienced. 

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 
come across: 

"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 
about.

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 
Frustration. 

While in dental school, I researched composite resin dental 
restorative materials which resulted in my first publication as a 
co-author. 

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.

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 
important!

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 
the layman. 

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 
will follow. 

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
