Nathaniel Abraham Graves, 



Nathaniel Abraham Graves, A. M., M. D., was born in De Kalb County, 
Illinois, July 5, 1864. He lived and worked on a farm for the first eighteen 
years of his life, attending the country school during the winter months. 
Later he attended the Sycamore High School and the Evanston Academy, 
graduating from Evanston in 1884. In 1885 he attended Bennett Medical 
College one year and for the next three years taught school. In 1 889 he 
again attended Bennett and graduated in 1890, entering the Cook County 
Hospital as an interne immediately afterward, serving eighteen months. Dr. 
Graves later served on the attending staff of the County Hospital for twelve 
years and on the consulting staff for three years. In 1 892 he was appointed 
to the chair of Chemistry in Bennett and in 1895 was transferred to the 
department of medicine, at the present time being head of this department. 
For ten years he w^as secretary of the Bennett Medical College and for one 
year its president. As a teacher he excels in practical therapeutics. He is 
at present on the attending staff of the Norwegian Deaconess Hospital and 
Jefferson Park Hospital. He is a member of the Chicago Medical Society, 
ihe Illinois State Society and the National Eclectic Medical Society. He is 
a member of the Delta Epsilon College Fraternity and the Phi Delta Epsilon 
Medical College Fraternity. 




^N March 2 5, 1869, a charter was granted by the State Legislature to the 
Bennett College of Eclectic Medicine and Surgery. 

November 1, 1869, Dr. J. F. Cook delivered the inaugural ad- 
dress to a student body consisting of thirty rren bers. The honor of the first 
presidency was conferred upon Dr. L. S. Major, which position he held until 
f872. Dr. Anson L. Clark was elected the next president and very success- 
fully and earnestly fulfilled the duties of the office until 1905, a period of 
thirty-three years. 

The first home of the college was on Kinzie and La Salle Streets, but 
owing to an increase in the student body, larger and more pleasant quarters 
were obtained the following year at 1 80 East Washington Street. The great 
Chicago fire of 1871 which destroyed the college building did not halt the 
progress of the school, for w^ithin a week lectures were resumed in temporary 
quarters at State and Twenty-second Streets, and \vithin a month the college 
occupied a building at 461 South Clark Street. This building, however, was 
too small for the ever growing classes, so a large, commodious structure was 
erected in 1 874 at 5 1 1 -5 1 3 State Street, as the future home of the institution. 
To better facilitate the clinical and bedside teaching, a hospital v/as built con- 
nected directly with the college building. 

in order to obtain better clinical advantages, in 1 899 the college w^as 
transferred to the present location at the corner of Fulton and Ada Streets. 
At this time the Faculty consisted of twenty-four professors and eight assist- 
ants. The same year the Cook County Commissioners gave the college rep- 
resentation on the attending staff of the Cook County Hospital and interneships 
■were allotted to the school. In 1 906 Jefferson Park Hospital became affiliated 
w^ith the college, thereby aiding greatly in the clinical facilities of the institution. 

Following the death of Dr. Clark, Dr. E. J. Farnum was chosen president 
for the remainder of the year. Dr. N. A. Graves assumed the duties of the 
office during the year 1906-1907, and was followed by Dr. E. M. Reading, 
who then held the presidency until 1 908. 

In 1908 Bennett Medical College took over the faculty and school of the 
Bennett College of Eclectic Medicine and Surgery and became a "Regular" 
school with Dr. J. D. Robertson, president, which chair he filled till this year, 
being succeeded by Dr. C. J. Whalen. 

In 1910 Bennett purchased the Illinois and Reliance Medical Colleges, 
adding a number of leading members of the faculties of these tw^o schools to 
Bennett. This same year Bennett affiliated with Loyola University, becoming 
its medical department. The student body then became too large for the 
quarters then occupied and a new laboratory building was erected. 

Bennett has alw^ays stood for advanced ideas and as long a course as 
was consistent with the times and general impression of medical educators. 
With the present administrative officers, coupled with the excellent clinical 
and teaching staff, Bennett will continue going "Onward and Forward."

and a bronze medal by the Emperor of Brazil in recognition of studies made 
at the hospital Misericordia during his service in the Navy. Dr. Waugh is a 
man of marked individuality. He fills a niche by himself. He has the qual- 
ities which go toward making success, which is not beneficial to him alone, but 
to all those who come under his guiding hand. Member of the Phi Delta 
Epsilon Fraternity. 

Edgar Mead Reading, A. M., M. D., was born in Edwardsburg, Mich., 
August 18, 1852. He comes from staunch old colonial and revolutionary 
stock, one of his ancestors having served as colonial governor of New Jersey 
under King George. Dr. Reading inherited his father's love of study and 
scientific research and graduated from Milwaukee Academy in 18 70. In 
1874 he obtained the degree of B. A., from Yale University, and in 1877 
graduated from Bennett with the degree of M. D. Northwestern University 
in 1 880 conferred upon him the degree of A. M. 

Immediately after his graduation from. Bennett, Dr. Reading served on 
the first staff of the Bennett Hospital, which was erected on a lot in the rear 
of the college. In the autumn of 1878 he vi^as called upon to conduct the course 
in Physiology in Bennett owing to the sudden illness of his father. He was 
subsequently elected to the full professorship of Physiology, later Diseases 
of the Chest, and ten years ago to that of Nervous Diseases, which he still 
occupies. In 1888 he was appointed to the Attending Staff of the Cook 
County Hospital and remained three years. In 1 894 he was appointed on the 
Consulting and Nominating Staff of Cook County Hospital, which position he 
filled six years. In 1907 he was elected President of Bennett, but owing to a 
large private practice and other college connections which made his duties very 
numerous, he resigned at the end of a year. 

He has been a member of various associations for The Advancement 
of Science, " for The Prevention of Tuberculosis, and others; author of 
college text books, connected with other educational institutions, but during 
his whole professional career has been very closely associated with his "Alma 
Mater. " And now, as senior member of the Faculty and the only living w^it- 
ness of Bennett's early struggles as compared with her ultimate success, he 
feels that his heart and pride are more than ever centered in her welfare and 
hopes that he may be spared for future labor in this direction for many years 
to come. Member of the A. M. A., Chicago Medical Society, Tri-State Medi- 
cal Society.

The graduates of a college enjoy the privilege of belonging to the Alumni 
of their Alma Mater. To be a member of the Alumni of Bennett Medical 
College means that you have labored diligently and through your ovirn efforts 
and the help of the college and its efficient Faculty you are able to go out into 
the world and succeed in your chosen profession. It means your reputation 
is assured, for Bennett is one of the oldest and best known Colleges in the 
West, and it has a reputation of sending out professional men of ability and 

The obligations of the members of the Alumni are to boost the College 
and to support the Association. Each member should advise worthy young 
men to enter their Alma Mater, telling them w^hat it can do for them. 

As to the support of the Alumni Association, each member of the grad- 
uating class ought to pay his dues and attend the meetings, if possible, and 
by all means to attend the banquet given at commencement time. It is your 
duty at this time to we'.ccme the new members and renew^ the old college 
friendship and see the feces of college chums and their families. There is 
nothing more inspiring than to see these familiar faces and to hear the in- 
spiring toasts to the College. 

Let all members then become active and fulfill their obligations to the 
.Alumni Association of their Alma Mater.

Michael F. J. Donovan, our President, was 
the hit of the day which caused the neigh- 
bors to sit up and take notice on the 22nd 
day of September, 1 886, at Stonington, 
Conn. After receiving his early education 
in the school of Stonington, he entered 
Westerly High School, graduating with hon- 
ors in 1 906. Having acquired the habit of 
"making hits," we find him in base-ball, 
having played with Lincoln, Nebr., of the 
Western League, and Brooklyn of the Na- 
tional League. Although successful in base- 
ball, he entered Bennett in September, 1911, 
and became an active member of his class. 
President Freshman Class 191 1-12. Presi- 
dent Sophomore Class 1912-13. Left 
Tackle on Football team 1912-13. Coach 
Loyola Baseball Team 1913. President Se- 
nior Class 1914-15. His splendid attain- 
ments and constancy of friendship led the 
class to join in w^ishing him a brilliant and 
successful career. 

Otto A. Kreml, Ph. G., Ph. C, R. Ph., 

made his debut into the world at Chicago, 
Illinois, on May 6th, 1 88 I . His early edu- 
cation was received at St. Francis R. C. 
Parochial School, later graduating from St. 
Patrick's Commercial Academy in 1895. 
He also attended the Chicago College of 
Pharmacy of the University of Illinois, 
graduating in 1 900 with the degrees of 
Ph. G. and Ph. C. After graduation he was 
successfully engaged in the drug business for 
ten years. He enrolled with the class of 
1915 at Bennett and at once became popu- 
lar. He was elected sergeant-at-arms dur- 
ing the Freshman year, w^hich position he 
filled vi'ith much credit, in appreciation of 
which he was re-elected during our sopho- 
more year. This year Dr. Kreml was elect- 
ed first vice-president, as a proof of our 
confidence in him. Dr. Kreml is a member 
of the Phi Delta Epsilon Fraternity. 

George Connor Lyons was born on May 
1 8, 1 892, at Surgionsville, Tenn. ; he at- 
tended the pubUc schools of this place and 
was graduated from Maxwell Academy. 
This was followed by a two years' college 
course at Tusculum and King Colleges. 
Thus having laid a strong foundation for 
his chosen profession, George commenced 
his medical studies in 1911 at the Univer- 
sity of Louisville Medical Department, but 
remained there only tw^o years, coming to 
Bennett a Junior. At the end of the Junior 
year, Dr. Lyons successfully passed the 
Tennessee State Board and secured a per- 
manent license to practice medicine. Dur- 
ing this year he was elected Vice-President 
of the Senior class, which position he holds 
with much credit. Dr. Lyons is a member 
of the Alpha Kappa Kappa Fraternity. 

Joseph J. Zak w^as born in the city of 
Chicago on March 22nd, 1879. He comes 
of good old Bohemian stock. Joseph while 
a young boy attended the C. S. P. S. Bohe- 
mian School, later the public schools. He 
is a good type of self-made business man. 
Some twenty-two years ago he sold news- 
papers in Chicago. Meanwhile he took up 
the study of pharmacy and after working 
his way through college was graduated ■with 
honors from Northw^estern University, Class 
1 89 7. For about ten years found him work- 
ing for some of the leading druggists in 
Chicago. In the Fall of 1907 he ventured 
in business for himself and today is one of 
the leading manufacturing pharmacists on 
the Northwest Side. 

He was Treasurer during the Sophomore 
year and was re-elected Treasurer in the 
Senior year. Member of the Phi Delta Ep- 
silon Fraternity, member of Northwestern 
University Alumni, member and officer, 
Chicago Retail Druggists Association, mem- 
ber Illinois Pharmaceutical Association. 

Roy Malloy Montfort was born in Benton 
Harbor, Michigan, July 11, 1889. As a 
student in the public and high schools of 
his native town, he displayed an ardency 
for education early recognized, being grad- 
uated with honors from the Benton Harbor 
High and receiving his diploma with the 
class of 1909. Then the desire for ad- 
vanced learning devolved upon him and the 
ensuing tw^o years were successfully devoted 
to a cousre of studies at the Michigan Ag- 
ricultural College, the degree of Ph. G. being 
obtained thereafter. 

Entering Bennett as a Freshman, his 
every action has proven conclusively that 
he is v/orthy of praise and renown, both as 
a student and athlete. A member of the 
Students Council, member of the Univer- 
sity Football team in 1911, Captain in 1912 
and elected the Valedictorian of our class 
is sufficient evidence to unquestionably 
prove the superiorty of this man. 

Gale Waite Huber made a brilliant addi- 
tion to the population of Merrill, Wiscon- 
sin, on March 10, 1892. He attended the 
Public Schools of Portage and Minocqua, 
Wisconsin, graduating from the Minocqua 
High School with the class 09. During 
1910 he filled successfully and with great 
credit to himself, an instructor's chair in 
the Public Schools of Wisconsin. Entered 
Bennett in the fall of 1911. 

He is a bearer of the official L, " merited 
by marvelous and hard, persistent w^ork on 
the 'varsity eleven of 1911 and 1912. Mem- 
ber of the Loyola Basket Ball team. 

Dr. Huber was always an energetic sup- 
porter of our class affairs, being assistant 
Editor of the "Year Book " in the Sopho- 
more and Junior class, and is Secretary of 
the Senior class. Dr. Huber is a member of 
the Psi Sigma Fraternity, also member and 
Vice-President of the Phi Delta Fraternity. 


Edmund G. Brust first gazed upon the 
prairies of Illinois on the 1 9th day of Aug- 
ust, 1893, at Addison, Illinois, where he 
spent his early life. ^ Later removing to 
Chicago, he graduated from Zion Holy 
Cross (Ev. Luth. ) Parochial School in 1906 
and from St. Ignatius High School in 1911. 

Entered Bennett in the fall of 1911. Dr. 
Brust's display of good nature and kind- 
ness as well as his distinction as one of the 
brightest students of the class, won for him 
the friendship of every one of his class- 
mates, and as a token of appreciation he 
was made Secretary in our Junior year, and 
Editor of the Senior class, which position 
he held with much credit. 

That his future will be filled with continu- 
ous success is the conviction of all. Dr. 
Brust is a member of the Phi Delta Epsilon 
Fraternity and the Cook County Quiz Class. 

Raleigh C. Oldfield was born in Chicago, 
Illinois, on December 9, 1 892. He received 
his early education in the public schools of 
this city, graduating in 1907. Raleigh at- 
tended the Medill High School for two years, 
entering the Austin High School a Junior, 
where he w^as a member of the Debating 
team, representative of Austin in the State 
Oratorical and Cook County Oratorical 
Contests and graduated w^ith honor in 1911. 

Deciding that the practice of medicine 
was his chosen vocation he entered Bennett 
in the fall of 1911, and from the very start 
has proven himself an excellent student, 
holding some of the highest grades aw^arded 
by the faculty. 

Vice-President during his Sophomore 
year. Junior year Editor-in-Chief of the 

Dr. Oldfield is a member of the Cook 
County Quiz Class, Medical Science Club

ating from the Evanston Academy of the 
Northwestern University with the class of 
191 1. 

Having medicine as his goal, Edmund 
entered Bennett, a charter member of the 
class of 1915. Very popular with the boys, 
and one of the pigskin artists representing

cerning the past, thus it may seem needless that I re-narrate events 
already recorded. To chronicle all the events of interest which have 
occurred since these many Seniors launched forth on the wide sea of med- 
icine would require more space than can possibly be allotted to this class; 
we can but touch upon the salient points; the more notable features in the 
history, filled with teeming interest. 

The lover of history, w^hen moved by the exaltation of his spirit, eager 
for erudite and intellectual sensation, will find in the v^fondrous deeds of 
these superb annals — achieved in the everlasting pages of our glorious past 
— those real and poignant images that, in supernatural redundance, come to 
his senses in order to gratify them anew w^ith an idealistic sketch of their 
forms, which produces in his soul a sublime inspiration and delectable ec- 

The Senior class of 1915, whose unquestioned unity and invincible 
spirit — principles wfhich constitute the motto of that standard which it firmly 
and proudly displays — has played no minor part in the brilliant history of 
the well-known Medical Department of Loyola University, and it is with 
pride, yet not unmixed with modesty that w^e state, vsrhile not pioneers in 
Loyola's upbuilding, w^e have at least been eager seconds in the pursuance 
of its noble ideals. 

When Bennett re-opened her beneficent lecture halls, in order that she 
might reveal to us the true secrets which Science holds as its most precious 
jewels, on or about the first of October, 1911, Time viritnessed a memorable 
event for both Loyola as well as the medical profession at large, for on 
that day the class of 1915 entered its precincts as freshmen, and since that 
time have held the front in all the lines of college life, forging steadily for- 
ward until now, that we are soon to be launched forth upon the billowy sea 
of life, to sink or swim. 

Our first glimpse of life in a medical institution was given us by our 
predecessors, the Sophomores, who proceeded to demonstrate their origin- 
ality and sense of humor in such ways as they deemed fitting. Upon our 
arrival ^ffe were met by our antagonists, where a brave effort was made to 
prevent a "drouth. " And let it here be said to our credit, that unorganized 
as we were, the battle was not without a most wholesome come-back " to 
the recalcitrant "Sophs. " 

Follovk^ing this, after having demonstrated our ability as warriors, we 
settled down to the routine work before us, bent upon the more serious 
things of life. 

Later, seeing the necessity of class organization, we resolved to 
strengthen our heroic body by the establishment of a proper leadership, so 
a meeting was called to consider the election of class officers. After an 


hour or more of warm "stump speeches, " the following officers were elec- 

Michael F. J. Donovan President 

V. B. Mariceau Vice-president 

M. M. Duffy Secretary 

H. T. A. Brady Treasurer 

O. A. Kreml Sergeant-at-Arms 

From this time on, the exaltation of spirit and endeavor which the class 
of 1915 truly possessed, manifested itself no longer as a potential force, nor 
as a passive agent to be spoken of and not exhibited, for the remainder of 
the year was amply filled with events of seething activity, only rivaled by 
our record of the succeeding years. 

in athletics, we have been equally virell represented, having a majority 
of our heroic athletes on the regular teams; football, basketball and baseball. 
Their efforts have but served to contribute additional feathers to our well- 
filled cap! 

Our initial social function of the year w^as a banquet held at the Con- 
gress Hotel, it being conceded the most successful in the whole of Bennett's 
history. Needless to say, that it lacked nothing in the light of activity and 
merriment, not to mention an epicurean repast of most royal savor. We 
were honored by the presence of our august faculty, among w^hom was the 
esteemed Reverend Father Spaulding, S. J., whose gentle dignity, yet genial 
humor contributed an added attractiveness to the evening. Professor Ar- 
thur B. Rankin acted as toastmaster, responding in the characteristic and in- 
genious manner for which he is loved and admired. Speeches were deliv- 
ered by members of the faculty apropos of the occasion, serious, humorous 
and witty. 

Later in the year, the college banquet, held at the Sherman House, did 
much to rival the first occasion, and in any event was very much appreci- 
ated and enjoyed. 

However, Time rolled on v^rith all her frictionless majesty, and in due 
course we were back on the campus for our second year's work, imbued 
with nascent energy and renewed ambition, as befitted us in our lofty posi- 
tion as Sophomores. Eager to begin the new^ year prepared, we at once pro- 
ceeded to elect class officers for the ensuing term, with the result that our 
loyal friend and co-worker, Michael J. Donovan, was elected president for 
a second term of office, proving in but a meagre way the esteem that we 
felt and continue to feel for so able a man. As his collaborators, the fol- 
lowing served a most worthy term: 

R. C. Oldfield Vice-president 

R. C. Konle Secretary 

J. J. Zak Treasurer 

O. A. Kreml Sergeant-at-Arms 

Professor O. C. Huber was unanimously elected Honorary President. 
Our next procedure was to drill the incoming class into the first prin- 
ciples of student life, fulfilling the normal feudal law held betw^een all Soph- 
omores and Freshmen since time immemorial. It was a great battle, and 

one long remembered as our most brilliant victory. 

Our first social function of the year was a banquet, held in the Floren- 
tine Room of Hotel Congress. As usual, it was a success. Besides other 
notable features of the occasion. Dr. O. C. Huber acted as Toastmaster, offi- 
ciating in a manner at once appropriate and humorous. 

The athletic department this year opened with rene\ved enthusiasm and 
fresh endeavor, we being highly honored when our classmate, Roy M. 
Montford, was elected captain of the football team for the season of 1912. 
How well we were represented is a matter of common history, and it is with 
gratification and esteem that ■we regard our athletes. 

On September 26, 1913, ■we entered upon the duties of our Junior 
year, keenly feeling the ever fast approaching goal for which we -were striv- 
ing, eyes ahead toward that elusive Mecca not to be attained save through 
the moisture of toil, damp upon our brows. 

Realizing the importance of an "early start," and having long before 
established amateur "party gangs" of no mean significance, all were eager 
for election of class officers. Accordingly, each man voting according to 
his ov^fn ideas, the follow^ing were elected: 

Ira B. Robertson President 

1. C. Jenks Vice-president 

E. G. Brust Secretary 

F. B. Pearce Treasurer 

J. E. Zaremba Sergeant-at-Arms 

As Juniors, our duty embraced the task of getting out the Year Book, 
a proceeding looked forward to with much excitement and speculation. 
Casting about us, we began searching the talents and accomplishments of 
our classmates, looking for appropriate executive officers of so important an 
undertaking. Finally, after days of indecision, headed by R. C. Oldfield as 
editor-in-chief, the whole crew of artists, editors, "quill pushers," poets, 
dramatists, humorists fell into line and "got busy." The fruit of their com- 
bined efforts was embodied in that most w^onderful of chryselephantine 
works, "The Plexus." Never before nor since has such a literary master- 
piece been born of medical brains, from the gold letters embossed on its 
front cover to the last fly leaf, and we are proud of it. 

However, lest the gentle reader think that all our efforts of the Junioi 
year were serious ones, and likew^ise, lest the now scattered class of 1914 
think we have forgotten the fact, let here be mentioned an affray between 
these same classes that w^ill live in our memories for many a day yet to come, 
and be handed down to posterity as an example of Junior prowess. Let us 
not discuss it. Modesty forbids us offering further proof of our prodigious 
accomplishments lest v*re give offense to those less blessed With a host of 
victories. Draw the v^^aiting curtain over the rest of that memorable year, 
and when it again rises, behold us in that most coveted of havens, that most 
envied of positions, that most blissful of palaces, the sanctum-sanctorum of 
all our student life — the Senior Hall! 

It was not until now^, with but a few short weeks between us and the 
goal we sought that we realized how near w^e were to the beginning of the 

end. It was not until now that its full meaning, flooding our minds and 
hearts like a golden sunbeam, dawned upon us, this entrance into the rank 
of the profession; to lessen human suffering and alleviate the ills of the 

Early in the beginning of the year, a class meeting was called for the 
election of officers. If we believed that the elections of preceding years had 
been heated, this last and final one broke all existing records, each candi- 
date eager for the honor of an office during Senior year. We were divided 
fairly equally into three factions, each striving to place its chosen in office. 

It was only after four hot, wild, tempestuous hours that the affair w^as 
terminated, the following officers being elected: 

Michael F. J. Donovan President 

O. A. Kreml 1 st Vice-President 

C. G. Lyons 2nd Vice-President 

J. J. Zak Treasurer 

E. G. Brust Editor-in-Chief 

R. C. Oldfield Associate Editor

Ira Connolly Historian 

R. E. Jarrell Class Prophet 

C. S. Bucher Asst. Sergeant-at-Arms 

E. G. Harris Class Will 

A. H. Bennewitz Class Poet 

Let it here be said, out of the depth and sincerity of our appreciation, 
and the genuine regard that we have had just occasion to entertain, during 
the three years that he has been president, Michael F. J. Donovan has loy- 
ally exemplified all that we believed him to be, and has proven the sterling 
gentleman of indisputable honor that his smiling, genial face first made us 
believe. We take this occasion to thank him and his associates for the fair, 
just and alvi'ays unprejudiced attitude which tKey have exhibited throughout, 
and to wish them all the success in life that their loyalty deserves. 

In closing, dear comrades, when history becomes the present, and all 
the yesterdays are gathered up and bartered for tomorrows, let us link our 
future to a star, and soar over the heads of the sluggards, bent on a journey 
of success and happiness, won by a knowledge that we have done well. 

"And when thyself, dear heart, with shining foot shall pass 

Among the guests, star-scattered upon the grass. 

And in thy joyous errand reach the spot where 1 made one. 

Turn down an empty glass!" 



I am sitting alone, by the surgery fire, with my pipe alight, now the day is done; 

The village is quiet, the wife's asleep, the child is hushed, and the clock strikes one! 

And 1 think to myself, as 1 read the Journal, and 1 bless my life for the peace upstairs, 

That the burden's sore for the best of men, but few can dream what a doctor bears; 

For here I sit at the close of a day, whilst others have counted their profit and gain, 

And 1 have tried as much as a man can do, in my humble manner to soften pain; 

I've warned them all, in a learned way, of careful diet, and talked of tone; 

And when I have preached of regular meals, I've scarcely had time to swallow my own. 

I was waked last night in my first long sleep, when I crawled to bed from my rounds- 
dead beat. 

"Ah, the Doctor's called!" and they turned and snored, as my trap went rattling down 
the street. 

1 sowed my oats, pretty wild they were, in the regular manner when life was free; 

For a medical student isn't a saint, any more than your orthodox Pharisee! 

I suppose 1 did what others have done, since the whirligig round of folly began; 

And the ignorant pleasures I loved as a boy. I have pretty well cursed since I came to 

be man. 
But still I recall through the mist of years, and through the portals of memory steal, 
The kindly voice of a dear old man who talked to us lads of the men who heal. 
Of the splendid mission in life for those who study the science that comes from God 
Who buckle the armor of Nature on, who bare their breasts and who kiss the rod. 
So the boy disappeared in the faith of the man, and the oats were sowed, but I never 

There were few better things in the world to do than lose all self m the doctor's lot. 
So 1 left life that had seemed so dear, to earn a crust that isn't so cheap. 
And I bought a share of a practice here, to win my way, and to lose my sleep. 
To be day and night at the beck and call of men who ail and women who lie; 
To know how often the rascals live, and see with sorrow^ the dear ones die; 
To be laughed to scorn as a man who fails, v^hen nature pays her terrible debt; 
To give a mother her first-born's smile, and leave the eyes of the husband wet; 
To face and brave the gossip and stuff that travels about through country town; 
To be thrown in the way of hysterical girls, and live all terrible scandals down; 
To study at night in the papers here of new disease and of human ills; 
To work like a slave for a weary year, and then be cursed when I send my bills! 

Upon my honor, we're not too hard on those who cannot afford to pay. 

For nothing I've cured the widow and child, for nothing I've watched till the night 
turned day; 

I've earned the prayers of the poor, thank God, and I've borne the sneers of the pam- 
pered beast, 

I've heard confessions and kept them safe as a sacred trust like a righteous priest. 

To do my duty I never have sworn, as others must do in this world of woe. 

But I've driven away to the bed of pain, through days of rain, through nights of snow. 

.As here I sit and I smoke my pipe, when the day is done and the wife's asleep, 

I think of that brother-in-arms who's gone, and utter well, something loud and deep! 

.And I read the Journal and I fling it down, and I fancy I hear in the night that scream. 

Of a woman who's crying for vengeance; Hark! no, the house is still! It's a doctor's

WITH unparalleled gratification, we, the Junior class of 1916, stand on 
the eve of our third year, and gazing back o'er the vista of trodden 
fields refreshens the reminiscences of past days by vividly recalling 
the pleasant associations with our worthy professors, cur schoolmates and 
classmates, our athletic endeavorments, our social succecses, the political 
campaigns and last but not least, our intellectual attainments that thus far 
have marked the career of our class a decided success in our dear Alma 
Mater, Bennett Medical College. 

That these reminiscences may not be fleeting and transitory, we here 
present a memoir of our class that gives in a correlated manner a precise 
and accurate account marking the progress of our class in the sojourn of the 
past three years, dwelling lightly on minor and in detail on the more im- 
portant events, so that in after years we may glance o'er these pages and find 
them a source for refreshing our memories of college days, and in marking 
the important milestones in the ascent to the higher fertile plains above. 

Three years ago, the portals of Bennett opened wide beneath its colos- 
sal spires and turrets to welcome in the first model Freshman class that had 
ever crossed its threshold. Our number, which consisted of representatives 
from all quarters of the globe, was gifted by the refining influence of several 
students of the fairer type. There were men from the frozen North, from the 
sunny South, the far East and the golden West. Some that had ventured 
from other climes and lands. The majority, however, consisted of mem- 
bers from this and nearby states. 

Each one of us was imbued with the requisite will power, as we liad 
assembled here for a purpose, and we wete filled with an ambition that su- 
perhuman forces alone could deviate from the pathway we had chosen and 
the profession that we contemplated making our life's work. No matter 
how dark loomed up the obstacles that obscured the goal and confronted us 
in our first year's v/ork, we put our shoulders to the wheel and thus far, we 
have triumphantly conquered. This indominitable spirit not only prevailed 
in hours of study and research; it also manifested itself in hours devoted to 
other achievements, social, athletic and political. 

The first few days were spent in making our acquaintances with the va- 
rious departments. The anatomical department proved the most impressive 
as experienced through the optic and olfactoiy nerves. It was here that 
later w^e spent considerable time under the imprecsive lecturer and capable 
artist, Dr. Rankin, who also conducted the histological department. A keen 
interest was likewise displayed in the various other departments; for remem- 
ber, had we not the silver-voiced orator of the physiological departm.ent. Dr. 
Horstman; the wizard of organic and inorganic chemistry. Dr. Huber; that 
genial smile and emphatic, "You've got to get it. " Materia Medica man. Dr. 
Steiner. Here also might be mentioned that long list of professional assist- 
ants whose kindly aid was ever at our call, but by recalling a few, as Dr. Mc- 
Clurg, Dr. McClane and Dr. Elliot, recalls all the rest that we encountered 
in our first year's work. 

Our acquaintance with the Sophomore class took place a few days 
later. Although our modesty would refrain, we must admit that we were 
defeated on account of the ambuscade and savage tactics employed by our 
antagonists in trapping us individually. We were not surprised that they 
should cover our fair countenances with the color symbolic of Springtime, 
but w^ere astonished at the primeval instinct which seemed as yet so predom- 

inant in the class that considered themselves superior to us. We have since 
forgiven them for this formal introduction as we realized that at that period 
they were "only Sophomores. " 

After the war clouds had subsided, we were not long in calling a class 
meeting, for we realized that in union there was strength. The following 
class officers were elected: C. E. Galloway, president; R. A. Hennessy, 
vice-president; R. M. Kelly, secretary; N. V. Graves, treasurer; H. Kruse 
and A. W. Burke as sergeant-at-arms. 

Being thus permanently organized and having a very capable set of 
officers, we were now "e pluribus unum." Our class soon became the most 
popular in school, but more than all, gained recognition as a class possessing 
qualities that characterized us as a model class, a distinction vfe have retained 
to the present day. 

Our social affairs during this year were a tremendous success. The 
big event that rounded up the social activities of our class was the reception 
ball tendered the faculty and entire student body in compliment to the out- 
going Seniors. This unique function took place in the beautiful Louis XVI 
ballroom of the Sherman Hotel, March 28, 1913. It was voted by all as 
the biggest and most pleasant social event ever given by a Freshman class, 
if not by the school. 

Before we were aware of it, the Freshmen finals were due; social and 
athletic activities were forgotten. Every spare moment was utilized in re- 
viewing the year's course, and we were well rewarded by the high marks 

Vacation days were no\v at hand. We were all glad to receive a little 
recreation, but it was with reluctance that we departed from our jolly friends 
and from the scenes of our happy Freshman days. 

A few Summer months of recreation, and we found ourselves again at 
old Bennett. Our number had considerably increased by the addition of 
new members from other colleges and those that had taken a year's rest af- 
ter their Freshman year. 

On account of the experience gained in our first year, we were not long in 
calling a class meeting and electing the following officers: R. H. George, 
president; M. W. K. Byrne, vice-president; H. C. Methany, secretary; C. O. 
Highsmith, treasurer; Dr. A. B. Rankin, as our honorary president. 

After the election of our class officers, it was our duty to properly initi- 
ate our new arrivals. The customary practice of hazing the Freshman class 
was sharply censured by our dean, who appealed to our honor and implored 
us not to deface our fair record with deeds of barbarism as usually inflicted 
upon the incoming class. A more rational method was proposed, v/hich 
was warmly endorsed by Father Spaulding. Namely, to invite the un- 
sophisticated new beginners out to a free-for-all game of football and utterly 
defeat them, so as to curb their unsatiated importance around the institu- 
tion. Being a broad-minded class, and realizing that perhaps the old cus- 
tomary method could be substantiated by a more rational one in making 
the Freshmen realize their place in a college, we acted accordingly, and on 
the following Saturday invited them out to a free-for-all football game. It 
must pain the Freshmen yet to recall how utterly they were defeated, and 
we refrain from further humiliation by withholding the score. 

The depressed spirit of the class was evident for a week, after w^hich 
they assumed so haughty a dispostion and became so decorous in their 
manner that we were greatly perplexed as what to do with this state of af- 
fairs. Our patience as well as that of others, was finally exhausted, as con- 
ditions were daily growing worse, so that we decided to readopt the old 
method which had produced the desired effect in previous years — initiate 
the Freshmen in "ye olden style " so that they might realize their insignificance. 

We therefore did unto others as others had done unto us. This wasn't 
quite in conformity with the old adage, but we saw no other resources. In 
order that all might benefit, and none escape, we cunningly trapped them as 
they strolled to school one morning, tied their hands and feet, and after all 
had been captured, some of our boys proved their ability and ingenuity as 
manipulators of the brush, by the artistic transfigurations wrought upon the 
countenances of our captives. A little leniency was displayed toward the 
fairer sex. Beautiful polka dots adorned their brows. The color was ap- 
propriate to remind them that it was their Springtime of a college career. 
After giving them all due display we invited them to a shov^^ in the after- 
noon, and since that time we have been the best of friends. 

A good majority soon manifested a tendency to trip it on the light, 
fantastic toe, and early there was formed a club of the Terpsicorhean order. 
Semi-monthly balls were given in the Garfield Park Refectory, and many 
were the hours pleasantly spent in gliding down the old ball room to music 
sweet and charming. it proved a great success, socially and otherwise. 

The social events of our class during this year terminated in a dinner 
dance held at the Hotel La Salle, in the Grand Ball Room. It was the only af- 
fair of the kind that had ever been given, and it proved one of the most pleas- 
ing entertainments given under the auspices of a Sophomore class. We 
were entertained for a short time by our honorary president and worthy 
professors, who gave vent to their eloquence and witticism in good advice 
and story. We would have enjoyed a longer program, but our speakers 
realized that -we -were all anxious to demonstrate our Terpsicorhean abilities. 

This brings us to the end of our second year, feeling v^fell repaid for the 
time spent in study. In parting to spend a few^ months with our loved and 
loved ones at home, we regret to find two members missing from our midst. 
Their life's duty is at an end. 

Hovkf fleeting is Time! Seems tw^as but yesterday that first -we wove 
the band of friendship here. Today, we are approaching the eve of 
of our departure. Alas! what changes Time has wrought. The Freshie's 
mischievous twinkle, the Sophomore's wise-fool look have disappeared and 
given way to a serious and grave demeanor. We are beginning to realize 
the expectancies that will be demanded of us as practitioners, and we have 
therefore abandoned our East wing paraphernalia and are now devoting our 
time to fulfil the rigid requirements of a Junior. We accordingly find our- 
selves established in the old vk^ing of the college. 

A few of the old members are missing from our list, but their absence 
is more than doubly compensated by the new arrivals from other institu- 
tions. It w^as not a little surprising, delightfully so to some, to find that the 
species which is more deadly than the male has increased one hundred per 
cent. The consequences, v^^ho know^s? 


Alexander W. Burke President 

Ira S. Haney Vice-president 

R. R. Kirkpatrick Secretary 

J. M. McSparin Treasurer 

Our honorary president. Dr. L. F. MacDiarmid. 

With these men at our helm, and one hundred forty to man the 
ship, -we have every indication of sw^iftly sailing o'er the billowy sea of our 
Junior curriculum and entering the calm harbor of our final year. 

The semi-final examinations shortly after the Christmas holidays ver- 


ified to our honorable instructors that our criterion was still at its height. 

During this year, most of us became members of the Sportsmen's Club 
of America. During the early part of the year, we all enjoyed a pleasant 
time at a ball given in our club hall. 

Many new members were also initiated into the several fraternities dur- 
ing this year. 

The big feature, however, upon which all spent considerable time, 
was the compiling of the Year Book, a task vi'hich it behooves the Junior 
class to accomplish. Thanks to the editor and his assistants and all those 
who kindly aided, the Year Book has excelled all other productions of pre- 
vious years. Like all our other achievements, it is a credit to and a reflec- 
tion of a class composed of quantity and quality. 

The historian's field does not encroach upon the future, but one year 
hence shall terminate the history of our class, collectively. Individually, 
we wrill all endeavor to improve on that which is well done. Though hard 
the task may seem and long the journey, we shall proceed as we began. 

This completes the history of the Junior class to date, and there is little 
more to say, except to note the new Sophomore and bid farewell to the de- 
parting Seniors. Gazing back, we behold the Sophomore on the lov^rer 
rungs of the ladder. The audacity that marked him in his Freshman year 
has given place to intellectuality. Sophomores, you have assured us of 
your capabilities as medicoes. Therefore, feel at ease when on our domain; 
we appreciate your friendship. Gazing forward, we behold the graduating 
class. Seniors, your four years of incessant toil are about to be crowned 
with the laurels of success. Your good fellowship during the time that we 
have known you has convinced us of your sterling worth, your high ideals, 
your one ambition. Nov^ that you are about to leave college life and enter 
Life's college, bear with you the teachings of your tutors and then though 
storms o'ertake you and barriers confront you, you shall eventually reach 
the bay of success, that lies calm and peaceful, awaiting you. We hope 
that your fondest dreams of the golden future shall be fully realized in the 
days to come. Seniors, au revoir. 

Fellow classmates, in recapitulation of that which is past, we have 
noted our trials and our triumphs. Let not vain glory mislead us from the 
pathway rightfully chosen. Though our difficulties may yet be in store, let 
us remember: 

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate 

Can circumvent or hinder or control 

The firm resolve of a determined soul. 

Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great. 

All things give way before it, soon or late. 

What obstacle can stay the mighty force 

Of the sea-seeking river in its course. 

Or bid the ascending orb of day to wait? 

Each will-born soul must win what it deserves. 

Let the fool prate of luck. The fortunate is he 

Whose earnest purpose never swerves; 

Whose lightest action or inaction serves 

The one great aim. 

Why, even death stands still and waits an hour, sometimes 

For such a will.

It is only proper that a brilliant event should have its inception at a brilliant time, 
hence it is superfluous and unnecessary to state that Sept. 23, 1913, was a bright day and 
the very heavens seemed to smile on a world that was happy, for on this day the great 
class of '17 convened for the first time to prepare for the years of history making en- 
deavor that were to be theirs. For a time at least silence reigned supreme and as far 
as the class was concerned life seemed to be extinct. It remained, however, for some- 
one to arise and speak, this man the class gladly accepted as their temporary chairman. 

The first thing of any importance was the election of officers, which resulted in the 
following men being chosen to office: C. H. Connors, President; D. D. Campbell, Vice 
President; D. E. Shea, Secretary; T. F. Phelan, Treasurer; Jas. Madison, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

About this time an edict w^as issued that the lowly neophyte was to be crushed, and 
the massacre was to take the form of a football game. How far from being carried out 
this mighty edict was can be seen to this day. Those lowly Freshmen who were to be 
burned at the altar of Hippocrates have never as yet been scorched, but have awaked 
fat, and from tinie to time augmented their number until now they are as great in 
number as they once ^vere, and still are in intellect. 

The class then became settled for a few days, only to become unsettled again, by 
rising rumors to the effect that the Sophs, not seeming to think that the football game 
served the purpose, were getting busj^ as was demonstrated later. 

In spite of all, the much heralded class rush took place, the object of which was to 
bind and paint the Freshman, and the Sophs, certainly put the green color on us this time. 
On November 15, the class was honored by the acceptance of Honorable President, by 
Dr. McClurg. 

On St. Patrick's night the class, arraigned in all its splendor, held a banquet at the 
Great Northern Hotel, and was honored by the presence of all of their instructors. It 
was generally admitted that all participants had one grand sumptuous time. 

After a long period of repose, characteristic of the elite and hard work on the part 
of the energetic, the class has returned, filled with vigor and good resolutions. 

Realizing our duty at this psycological time, a class meeting was held to determine 
the manner in which the young intruders should be handled. As the presiding officer 
remarked, "Now for the dirty work." 

The unsuspecting Freshmen were seized firmly and politely bound, hand and foot. 
They were then calcimined in green as a symbol of their state of intellectuality, and on 
their forehead was imprinted with deep staining Gentian Violet, our class year '17. 
This was not meant merely to soak into their forehead, but from hence on to comprehend 
their insignificance, and make it a part of their gray matter to respect their superiors. 

They were then marched thru the streets, little difficulty being found in handling 
the young reptiles. The tramp ended in Union Park, where both prisoner and captor 
were photographed. Later in the day both classes celebrated by attending the matinee. 

The class organized for their Sophomore year, electing Geo. W. McCrary, President; 
E. G. Nylander, Vice-President; C. Alexande 
LaMarre and D. Monaco, Sergeants-at- Arms. 

Dr. Huber was unanimously elected Hon 
by his acceptance. 

In thought, word and action the class of '17 have proven themselves to be in- 
ferior to none, and if they maintain their degree of standardization, all will be looked 
up too by the Medical Profession.

able President 

and the class was honored 


Say, fellows, let me tell you, 

I'd be happy as a clam, 
If 1 only was the student 

That the faculty think 1 am. 

Rankin thinks that I'm a wonder. 

And know the twelve cranial nerves. 

While if the truth was only known. 
Of the biceps I never heard. 

Then Huber asks for ethers 

And smiling, looks at me. 
Say, fellows, let me tell you, 

1 know naught of N H3. 

And Herzog in pathology, 

That subject which is so deep. 

When he asks what is a thrombus. 
Up my back a chill does creep. 

Then, there is our friend, McClurg, 
With smiles all o'er his face. 

Asks for the iliac artery; 

Expects that I should trace. 

Steiner in therapeutics. 

He has such funny \vays 

Will ask the dose of Sumbul. 

And my hair straight up does raise. 

Now, Elliott in dissection- 
He's there in snow or ram; 

Points out the radial artery 

And asks, "What is this vein"? 

Hays, in embryology. 

Looks in my direction. 

And asks what an embryo is. 

McLane. in bacteriology. 

Raises havoc with poor me; 

Mentions the streptococcus 

And looks my way, with glee. 

Horstman, in physiology. 

Comes in without a smile. 
Mentions the digestive system; 

Decides to quiz me a \vhile. 

Then Arnold, in pharmacology, 
Injects strychnine into a dog. 

Wants me to give an antidote 

Of course, 1 feel like a log. 

Weil, in physical diagnosis. 

Travels with lots of pep: 
Asks me to locate the heart sounds. 

And I feel just like a wreck. 

And so each day, to class I go. 

Be it lecture, quiz or lab., 
I know not what they're talking of. 

And still, I feel not sad. 

But lots of times I sit and think 

How nice 'twould be— gee whiz— 

If a fellow was a student 

That the faculty think he is.

The class of 1918 was quickly organized, but we began the long circuit 
of four years with rather a limited number. We did not enjoy our loneli- 
ness very long, however, as the second semester found us increased by 
twenty-two more students from the Pre-medic class. Needless to say, we 
welcomed them with open arms. Of course, there was a reason. With 
them they presented us with four members of the fair sex, which brightened 
our heretofore dull class-room. They were an extremely welcome addition 
to our ranks. 

About two weeks after school opened the much to be feared class rush 
took place. It, however, was not as exciting as advertised. The Sophs 
outnumbered us about three to one, and coupled with the fact that we were 
taken unawares, they succeeded in painting and marching us around the 
West Side. In the afternoon we were their guests at a neighboring theater, 
which settled things to the satisfaction of all concerned. 

The next event of importance was the election of class officers.

J. P. Hutchinson Treasurer 

F. M. Dry Secretary 

J. F. Ruzic Sergeant-at-Arms 

B. C. Rembe Sergeant-at-Arms 

The class immediately voted Dr. C. B. McClurg its honorary President, 
and to our great pleasure he honored us by accepting this position. We 
received a severe jolt, how^ever, when we returned from our Christmas vaca- 
tion to learn that our esteemed Honorary President had been promoted from 
the rank of bachelor to the exalted position of a benedict. Our heartiest 
congratulations and sincere v^ishes are extended to him, and may he enjoy 
a long happy wedded life. 

The Freshmen Banquet was held April 1 5th in the Fraternity Room of 
the Great Northern Hotel. Many of the Faculty were present. All present 
had a most enjoyable time, and there is no doubt but what this day will 
be long remembered as one of the brightest in the history of the class. 

CLASS OF 1918. 

We're always studying, we never play. 

For Doctors ■we all hope to be some day 

To cure all ills, and right all wrong 

So that the world may continue in the life long song. 

We will relieve a pain, and give a pill. 
To earn our living, with a right good ■wiW, 
And if the folks are old and gray. 
We'll do our best to keep death away. 

F. J. HALPIN '18. 


Here is a toast 1 want to drink to a fellow Til never know 

To a fellow who's going to take my place when it's time for me to go. 

I've wondered what kind of a chap he'll be, and I've wished 1 could take his hand 

Just to whisper, "I wish you well, old man" in a way that he'd understand. 

I'd like to give him the cheering word that I've longed at times to hear; 

I'd like to give him the warm hand clasp when never a friend seems near. 

I've learned my knowledge by sheer hard work, and wish I could pass it on 

To the fellow who'll come to take my place some day when 1 am gone. 


Will he s 
Will he ever gues 
Will he gaze thr. 
And catch a glin

And gain some st

Then here's to your health, old chap;. I drink as a man to man;

I've dreamed of my dreams as all men do, and you'll dream the same things too. 

And my prayer to-day, old chap, is that they may all be realized by you. 

And we'll meet some day in the great unknown out in the realms of space; 

You'll know my clasp as I take your hand and gaze in your welcome face. 
Then all our failures will be success in the light of the new found dawn — 
So I'm drinking your health, old chap, who'll take my place when I'm gone.

Miss Minnie Leishin. On the 10th day of March. 
1910, there appeared in the office a young lady who 
assumed the duties of stenographer. From that day 
to this Miss Leishin has been the friend of every 
student whose business has taken him to the office. 
Quiet and reserved, and yet obliging and courteous 
to all. Miss Leishin has been a favorite with all con- 
nected with the school. Among her many accomplish- 
ments is the ability to remember the name, initials, 
and class of every student in this department. 

Miss Eleanor Ellsworth Sherwood. It's hardly pos- 
sible to think that she is a "grown-up" because she is 
so small and jolly; and when she smiles, why. the 
library is always crowded. They say, "She was placed 
there, so as to have the library a popular place for 
the students to study." What do you mean? 

Daisy E. Truby, clinical nurse. Bennett Medical 
College, Medical Department of Loyola University, 
was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and received 
her training at the Franklin County Hospital in Penn- 
sylvania; after leaving that hospital she went to the 
Johns Hopkins Hospital. At her post in the Clinic 
Room she fills a place in the hearts of professors, 
students and patients, and all questions and requests 
are answered in as cheerful and encouraging manner 
as one of the "ministers to the sick" always answers. 
It is the hope of all that our little nurse will long 
grace the clinic room of the Bennett Medical College. 

And only the Master shall praise us, 

And only the Master shall blame. 
And no one shall work for money. 

And no one shall work for fame; 
But each for the joy of working. 

And each in his separate star, 
Shall draw the thing as he sees it. 

For the God of things as they are.

JEFFERSON Park Hospital was organized in the fall of 1905, being 
located on the north'west corner of Monroe and Loomis streets, a tract 
of land on which was the John Spry residence. This was remodeled 
for hospital purposes, and later an addition was made to the hospital for the 
surgical department. The rapidly increasing demand for space made it 
necessary to erect on the land adjoining it on the west, a modern five-story 
hospital structure, which was completed and opened in October, 1913. The 
old building was again remodeled, so that at the present time the entire struc- 
ture has a capacity of ninety patients, with three fully equipped operating 
rooms, sun parlor and all other conveniences that are to be found in the 
modern hospital. 

There is a training school for nurses in connection with the hospital, and 
Clinics are conducted daily for the Senior and Junior classes in the clinical 


Wm. J. Hurley, M. D. 


Although still in its infancy, being founded scarcely ten 
years ago by the Religious Hospitalers of St. Joseph, St. Ber- 
nard's Hospital is one of the leading institutions of its kind 
in the Middle West. 

The hospital, constructed of the finest Georgia marble, 
was built at a cost of $500,000, and possesses all modern 
conveniences. Accommodations may be had for over 300 
patients, and last year over 3,000 patients were treated. 

Notw^ithstanding that the institution receives neither state 
nor municipal financial aid, "The hand that helps" is extended 
to all unfortunates who are unable to pay, and this w^ithout 
regard to either creed or nationality. Dr. Hurley conducts 
Clinics for the Junior students of Bennett each Wednesday at 
this hospital.

The Lakeside Hospital was established at 4147 Lake Avenue as a private 
hospital in 1 890, and belonged to Dr. E. H. Dorland and Dr. N. H. Hender- 
son, both deceased. In 1903 the hospital was taken over by Dr. A. Ralph 
Johnstone and was continued as a private hospital at the same address until 
September, 1913, when it was moved to the present address at 3410 Rhodes 
.'Xvenue. The hospital has accommodations for sixty-five patients and is 
beautifully located on a large property with an open lawn of one hundred 
feet in depth and two hundred feet in width, in a quiet residence portion of 
the South Side. 

There is no staff, but the institution is open to any reputable member 
of the profession. In 1914 over one hundred and fifty of the representative 
physicians and surgeons of the city had patients in the Lakeside hospital. 

The Training School for Nurses of the Lakeside Hospital has an average 
of thirty-five student nurses and has graduated some of the highest class of 
nurses to be found in the city. The course of training fits the nurses for 
registration under the laws of the state and many of its graduates occupy 
positions of importance in other training schools and in other public and 
private capacities. 

Drs. MacKechnie and Johnstone hold clinics every Wednesday after- 
noon for the Junior class of the Bennett Medical College. 


A. A. O'Ne.ll, M. D. 


The Columbia Hospital and Training School, located at 
4607 Champlain Avenue, was established in 1901 as a private 
hospital with the experiment of individualism as contrasted 
w^ith collectivism. All statistics as to mortality and final re- 
sults are very much in favor of individualism. The future 
large hospital must of necessity be a number of small units. 
Dr. A. A. O'Neill, assisted by his son, Dr. C. S. O'Neill, holds 
clinics for the Junior class of Bennett Medical College.

The paths of pain are thine. Go forth 
With healing and with hope; 

The suffering of a sin-sick earth 
Shall give thee ample scope. 

Smite down the dragons fell and strong. 

Whose breath is fever fire; 
No knight of table or of song 

Encountered foes more dire. 

The holiest task by heaven decreed, 

An errand all divine, 
The burden of our mortal need 

To render less is thine. 

No crusade thine for cross or grave. 

But for the living man. 
Go forth to succor and to save 

All that thy skilled hands can. 

Before the unveiled mysteries 

Of life and death, go stand 
With guarded lips and reverent eyes 

And pure of heart and hand. 

So shalt thou be with pow^er endued 

For Him who went about 
The Syrian hill-paths, doing good 

And casting devils out. 

That Holy Helper liveth yet. 

Thy friend and guide to be; 
The healer by Gennesaret 

Shall walk the rounds with thee! 

— John Greenleaf Whittier.

The school year 1914-1915 marks a veritable epoch in the history of 
the Zeta Mu Phi Fraternity. More things have been accomplished during 
this relatively short period than even the most hopeful of us dared to dream 
of. The long sought for amalgamation with the large Eastern Jew^ish Fra- 
ternity, the Aleph Yodh He, hag finally been effected, the four Chicago and 
all middle Western chapters retaining their name as the Zeta Mu Phi 

The next move was the establishment of a Fraternity Journal, and it is 
largely due to the efforts of the Delta Chapter that this has been brought to 
realization. Thus far two numbers have appeared of the "Aleph Yodh He 
Medic" and according to expert criticism they rank high among the best of 
fraternity publications in the country. The Editor-in-Chief is a member of 
the Delta Chapter. The value of the magazine cannot be overestimated, as 
it serves as the medium of exchange of thoughts and ideas between the 
graduate and undergraduate bodies of the Eastern and Western Divisions. 

To promote the social side of fraternity life, the Delta Chapter in con- 
junction with the other chapter has arranged for several receptions, smokers, 
a banquet and some smaller dances during the past year. The big annual 
reception was held at the West End Women's Club February 12th, and 
socially was a great success. 

In order to advance the medical education of its members, the Delta 
Chapter has inaugurated a series of clinics at the different hospitals under 
the direction of the faculty members, which proved to be successful. The 
establishment of a permanent Zeta Mu Phi Clinic on the West Side is at 
present under consideration. 

Being primarily a Fraternity of and for Jewish Medical Students, the 
membership is necessarily limited ; however, we succeeded in gathering most 
of the available material into our folds and the prospects for our future are 
extremely bright. We sincerely believe that the existence of our Fraternity 
is entirely justified and that the accusations of snobbiness customarily at- 
tributed to a college fraternity does not apply to the Delta Chapter, Zeta Mu 
Phi Division of the Aleph Yodh He Medical Fraternity.

The Phi Chi Delta was founded at Louisiana State Uni- 
versity in 1913. The purpose of this organization is to bring 
in close relationship all the worthy Latin-American students in 
the United States, and to maintain a high standard as such. 
It also tends to establish Alumni Chapters in all the Latin- 
American countries so as to be of a helping hand to its fellow 
members in the practice of their respective professions. 

The progress of this association has been so wonderful 
that in the short period of its existence fourteen different 
Chapters have been created. Among its members almost 
every nation of the South, Central America and West Indies 
is represented, which proves to be a great success. A monthly 
magazine is published by the "Omicron Chapter" of Chicago, 
having a circulation of two thousand copies.

RESEARCH is the trained, scientific investigation of the principles and 
facts of any subject based on original or first hand study. In the year 
1914 the Society of Scientific Research was organized in Bennett Medi- 
cal College. The founders of the Society v/ere members of the student body 
who were active assistants in the various laboratories of the college. Each 
member is required to do some original research work independent of his reg- 
ular studies. All research work w^ill be under the direct supervision of the 
professor in that department. The student will then write a thesis on his 
subject, the same to be read before the society at one of its regular meetings. 
The treatise will embrace the following: object in view; apparatus used; his 
findings and results; resume of literature on the subject. The subject will 
then be criticized and debated, after which the board of censors will either 
accept or reject it. 

Maximilian Herzog, M. D. LL.D., who was tendered a life membership 
in the society, has honored us by accepting it. By the unanimous vote of 
the members the doctor wras elected Honorary President, the expiration of 
the term to be optional on his part. Dr. Herzog has traveled a great deal 
both at home and abroad, and with his personal knowledge of science we 
are confident we will receive great assistance from him. 

The society has for the second time unanimously elected Cleveland C. 
MacLane President. This action on the part of the members is only a just 
reciprocation for the efforts put forth by Dr. MacLane to bring about the 
organization of the society. 

The Board of Censors are deserving of honorable mention for the inter- 
est they have manifested in our society. They are, respectively: 

Cleveland C. MacLane, M. D. C, Chairman 
Henry F. Lewis, A. B., M. D. 
Otto C. Huber, Sc. B., M. D. 
Alfred de Roulet, M. S., M. D. 
Arthur B. Rankin, A. B., M. B. 
Maximilian Herzog, M. D., LL.D. 
William F. Waugh, A. M., M. D. 
Frank M. Horstman, Ph. G., Sc. B., M. D. 
Cyrus B. McClurg, M. D. 
- Victor J. Hayes, Ph. D. 

Every member of this society donates his services at all times, and is 
required to make any sacrifice necessary for its success. When the purpose 
of an organization of this character is compared with the ever ready tendency 
of today, to commercialize all things, it is evident the only reward is some- 
thing which cannot be purchased and is beyond price. 





THE forty-seventh annual banquet was held at the Hotel Sherman on May 
7, 1914. As always, it was one of the great social events of the year, and 
the faculty, alumni and students turned out in a body. As Sloan's Orches- 
tra played a lively tune the banquet doors opened and the seniors, juniors, 
sophomores and freshmen marched in and took their respective places. The 
faculty then took their places amid great applause. Rev. John L. Mathery, 
S. J., president of Loyola University, gave the invocation. The w^aiters then 
got busy and spread before the partakers one of the best repasts obtainable, 
and all enjoyed it. Dr. Arthur B. Rankin introduced the toastmaster, Arthur 
E. Gammage, M. D., who kept all in a happy state of mind with his appro- 
priate jokes. Dr. J. D. Robertson then spoke on the "Bennett Medical Col- 
lege," picturing its future in a very rosy light. 

Dr. Frank M. Horstman introduced John P. Coughlin, who spoke for 
the class of 1917, giving the freshman's idea of a medical college. 

Mr. Alexander W. Burke was introduced by Dr. Charles A. Miller. Mr. 
Burke spoke for the class of 1916 and held his audience's attention. 

The junior class speaker, Felix Lovi^nick, was introduced by Dr. Leslie F. 
MacDiarmid, and Alfred Davis spoke for the senior class after being intro- 
duced by Dr. N. A. Graves. Henry S. Spaulding, S. J., spoke on "Loyola 
University, " and Maximilian Herzog, M. D., spoke on "My Association ^vith 
Bennett Medical College. " During the program each class tried to outdo 
the other in giving its class yells, and all joined in cheering the professors. 
As the orchestra played "Home, Sweet Home, " one of the best college ban- 
quets became past history, but will be remembered by all as second to none 
in feast and program. • 


THE CLASS OF 1915 have taken a prominent part in the social affairs 
of Bennett from their entrance into the college. At the close of their 
Freshmen year they gave a banquet at the Congress hotel, which was 
so successful that it was duplicated at the end of the Sophomore year. When 
the Junior year was reached they realized that a social function should be 
given in honor of the Senior class, and so, after some discussion, a dance 
was decided upon. 

Committees were appointed to make arrangementss and secure the 
necessary financial support. The date selected was April 28th and the place 
the Hotel Sherman. The second floor, including the Louis XVI, Crystal, 
Grey and Rose rooms were thrown into one for the accomomdation of the 
large crowd that v^^as present. The Grand March began about ten o'clock, 
led by Dr. O. C. Huber, our Honorary Class President, and Mrs. John Dill 
Robertson, followed by Dr. John Dill Robertson with Mrs. Herzog, Dr. 
Maximilian Herzog with Mrs. Marcusson, and our Class President, Ira B. 
Robertson, with Miss Sherwood. Following these were the Faculty and 
students, about five hundred in all. 

The Grey room was set aside for those who did not care to dance. 
It was very tastefully arranged with small tables and was filled the entire 
evening v/ith a good natured crowd. The music was furnished by an 
orchestra conducted by one of the members of the Junior Class and was 
very well rendered. One of the novel features was the naming of the dif- 
frent dances for our Professors and the presentation to the first four ladies 
in the Grand March of a bouquet of American Beauty roses. The dancers 
dispersed about one o'clock, all agreeing that they enjoyed a very pleasant 



OF the many social functions given by the classes of the Loyola University Medical 
Department, the dinner dance of 19 14, held by the class of 1916, was far the most 
brilliant and successful. 

The class and faculty assembled in the famous Gold Room of the Hotel LaSalle. 
where a sumptuous dinner was served. The honorary president. Dr. A. B. Rankin, 
presided as toast-master, and his genial humor enlivened the evening for all. 
Prograni as follows: 

University John Louis Mathery, S. J., Henry S. Spaulding, S. J. 

Faculty Carl E. Boyer 

Response Dr. Maximilian Herzog 

Ladies Dr. Leo Steiner 

Response Dr. Otto C. Huber 

Reading Mary J. Holmes 

Class Dr. Frank Marion Horstman 

Response R. H. George 

Each number of the program was given admirably, and all present did ample justice 
to the repast. 

After the subsidence of cheers and class yells, we were ushered into the Grand Ball 
Room, where the remainder of the evening was enjoyed in dancing. .As the last strains 
of Home, Sweet Home were resounded through the Ball Room, the class departed, each 
one vowing that this was the best dinner-dance that they had ever attended. 

Dr. Henry F. Lewis opened his home the first and third Sunday evenings of De- 
cember and January, to the members of the Junior class. Many of the Juniors took ad- 
vantage of this open house and spent very enjoyable evenings. Dr. Lewis and his wife 
and family welcomed all very heartily, and all enjoyed themselves. 

ANEW ERA is dawning for Bennett Medical College. The alumni, 
s^tudents and faculty have no reason to be ashamed of her past, but all 
should rejoice in the glorious prospects of her future. 

On June first, 1915, Loyola University takes over full control of the 
college, which becomes as much the medical department of the University 
as are those departments of the University of Illinois or Northwestern Uni- 
versity. There is no doubt that the develcpment of all first-class medical 
schools must be in direct connection with universities. An academic at- 
mosphere is necessary. The prestige of a great university is necessary. 
Honors and indispensable endowments can reasonably be expected only 
through university connections. 

Loyalty to Bennett should be increased because of its organic union 
with Loyola. More is constantly being expected from medical schools than 
in the past and more will be expected in the future. The public is demand- 
ing better education of its doctors of medicine. Thej' must verily be doctors 
— learned. 

Just as "men constitute a state," so students constitute a school. Loyalty 
to Bennett and to Loyola cannot better be shown than by efforts to get good 
students for the medical school. 

The increasing requirements both for entrance and for graduation will, 
for a time, tend to reduce the numbers of students in our classes unless con- 
centrated effort is put forth to obtain students. If each student now in col- 
lege brought one acceptable new student the present membership would in- 
crease three-fold. If each teacher in Bennett brought one student, the 
membership would not decrease. If each alumnus brought one student the 
halls would not hold the host of them. 

Let each of us try to get at least one student. We can now talk to 
prospective students with greater hope and greater sense of conviction than 
ever before. Loyola is solid and its solidity will solidify Bennett. 



Have you got the new disorder? 
If you haven't 'tis in order 

To succumb to it at once without delay. 
It is called appendicitis, 
Very different from gastritis, 

Or the common trash diseases of the day. 

It creates a happy frolic. 
Something like the winter colic. 

That has often jarred our inner organs some. 
Only wrestles with the Vi'ealthy, 
And the otherwise most healthy, 

Having got it, then you're nigh to kingdom come. 

Midway down in your intestine. 
Its interstices infestin' 

Is a little alley, blind and dark as night: 
Leading off to simply nowhere. 
Catching all stray things that go there, 

As a pocket it is simply out of sight. 

It is prone to stop and grapple 
With the seed of grape or apple. 

Or a soldier button swallowed with your pie. 
Having levied on these chattels, 
Then begin internal battles. 

That are apt to f nd in mansions in the sky. 

Once located, never doubt it, 
\ ou would never be without it; 

It's a fad among society that's gay; 
Old heart failure and pareisis 
Have decamped and gone to pieces 

And dyspepsia has fallen by the way. 

Then stand back there, diabetes. 
For here comes appendicitis. 

With a brood of minor troubles on the wing. 
So, vermiform, here's hoping 
You'll withstand all drastic doping 

And earn the appellation "Uncrowned King." 



He must not walk his rounds for fear his patients think him poor, 
And dearly do they love to see a carriage at their door; 
And if his horse is fat, "He murt have little virork to do. " 
And if it's lean the reason is, He starves the poor old screw.' 

Should he call upon his patients every day vi'hen they are ill 
His motive plainly is 'to make a great big doctor's bill. " 

If he visits them less frequently — thus less'ning their expense 

The chances are he'll be accused of willful negligence. 

He must work all day and half the night, and never say he's tired; 
For the public look upon him simply as a servant hired; 
And should he take a holiday, he'll find when he comes back 
Some patients have resented it by giving him "the sack. " 

Concerning money he must seem indifferent to be. 
And folks wll think he practices from pure philanthropy. 
When we hear about him boasting of the guineas that he earns 
We wonder if they all appear in his income-tax returns. 

About his own afflictions he must never say a v/ord ; 

The notion of a doctor being ill is so absurd! 

.And when, perhaps from overwork, he's laid upon the shelf. 

His sympathizing patients say, "Physician, heal thyself. " 



Once 1 thanked God for many a glittering thing 

Which now 1 know was w^ortjiless and which passed 

With things forgotten and behind me cast; 

As 1 moved onward, borne by time's svvfift wing; 

But never thought 1 then that work could be 

God's gift, but rather, punishment it seemed; 

And often in my lonely hours I dreamed 

Of days when from its bond 1 should be free. 

But now 1 know that work is man s best friend. 

Heaven's highest blessing to a world like this; 

And now I ask no longer ease and bliss, 

But only this: "Give me until the end 

Strength for the needed toil as the day passes by; 

When I can work no longer, let me die. " 

— D. J. FLANAN, '1! 


Behold this ruin! 'Twas a skull, 

Once of ethereal spirit full ; 

This narrow cell was life's retreat. 

This space was thought's mysterious seat. 

What beautious visions filled this spot! 

What dreams of pleasure long forgot! 

Nor hope, nor joy, nor love, nor fear. 

Have left one tract of record here. 

Beneath this mouldering canopy. 

Once shone the bright and busy eye; 

But start not at the dismal void — 

If social love that eye employed. 

If with no lawless fire it gleamed, 

But through the dews of kindness beamed. 

That eye shall be forever bright. 

When stars and sun have lost their light. 

Here in this hollow cavern, hung 

The ready, swift and tuneful tongue; 

If falsehood's honey it disdained. 

And, when it could not praise, was chained, 

If bold in virtue's cause it spoke. 

Yet gentle concord never broke; 

The silent tongue shall plead for thee. 

When death unveils eternity. 

Say, did these fingers delve the mine. 
Or ■with the envied rubies shine? 
To hew a rock or wear a gem. 
Can nothing now avail to them. 
But if the page of truth they sought. 
Or comfort to the mourner brought. 
These hands a richer need shall claim. 
Than all that v/ait on wealth or fame. 

Avails it, w^hether bare or shod. 
These feet the path of duty trod? 
If from the bowers of ease they fled. 
To soothe affliction's humble bed; 
If grandeur's guilty bride they spurned. 
And home to virtue's lot returned, 
These feet with angel's wing shall vie. 
And tread the palace of the sky.

1 stepped up to a fountain for to get myself a drink, 
But a feller sez, Be keerful! There is death on that there brink! 
Beware the deadly drinking cup, 1 beg you on my knees! 
Tis loaded with bacteria of every known disease!" 

I bought an ice cream sody, my ragin' thirst to quench, 

But my health guide snatched it from me with a far from gentle wrench. 

An' frow^nin' at me sternly, he sez: "Man, don't you know 

That ice cream is the fertile field where bad germs always grow? " 

"All food, " he sez, "is deadly. There's trichiny in the pig; 
There's tubercles in cattle, an' in poultry, small and big; 
All fish you get is poison, an' veg' tables an' fruit 
Are lackin' nutrition, and dangerous, to boot. " 

1 sez, "I'm gettin' feeble, so 1 guess I'll go to bed." 
But he sez, "Frien", don't do it — take an out-door nap, instead; 
For a room is full of microbes, an' you git with every breath 
Enough of awful critters for to cause your sudden death. " 

I sez, "Good man, forgive me, but run an' swat the fly. 
For 1 am bent on suicide, an' happy w^ill 1 die! " 
Then I drank a quart of water, and 1 et a peck of food. 
An' then for drink an' vittles I was feelin' in the mood. 

1 had some soup an' coffee, an' sirloin steak and trout. 

Potatoes, pie an' onions, corn beef, ice cream an' kraut; 

Then I lighted up a big seegar an' leaned back on a bed — 

Oh, that was quite a while ago. Him? Pore ol' chap, he's dead! 



The night was dark and bitter cold. 
The wind across the prairie swept, 

While 1 in comforts warm enrolled, 

Snored softly on and soundly slept. 

When suddenly my doorbell rang — 

Infernal sound! It pierced my ears. 

As on the creaking floor 1 sprang. 

My heart athrob with direst fears, 

Lest one had come to call me out 
Into the cruel, biting blast — 

1 for my garments cast about. 

Wishing this night call were my last. 

But oh, the best thought of my life! 

It calms me now as oft before. 
I'll send my thoughtful, faithful wife 

To meet the stranger at the door. 

She goes, and oh! the sweetest lies 

That ever mortal tongue has told. 

As in her artless way rhe tries 

To say — that I'm out in the cold. 

"He won't be home till break of day. 

An' then he'll come, poor tired man, 

I'm awful sorry he's away. 

He'll come as promptly as he can. " 

I go to bed, but not to sleep; 

1 ponder long on doctors' w^ives. 
The only ones who ever think 

Of our rest-broken, weary lives. 

1 somehow think God don't record 

Those little white lies often told. 

To give a vi'ay-worn doctor sleep. 

Or save him from the winter's cold. 

And if He does, I'm sure His pen 

Writes very near, in letters bright, 

A tender thought of her who thinks 
Of doctors, toiling in the night. 

—DR. J. W. BELL. 


I've never known a dog to wag 

His tail in glee, he didn't feel 
Nor quit his old-time friend to tag 

At some more influential heel. 
The yellowest cur 1 ever knew 
Was, to the boy who loved him, true. 

I ve never known a dog to show 
Half way devotion to his friend, 

To seek a kinder man to know. 
Or richer, but unto the end 

The humblest dog 1 ever knew 

Was, to the man who loved him, true. 

I've never known a dog to fake 

Affection for a present gain. 
Or false display of love to make. 

Some little favor to attain. 
I've never known a Jack or Spot 
That seemed to be what he was not. 

But 1 have known a dog to fight 

With all his strength to shield a friend. 
And, vifhether v^rrong or whether right. 

To stick ■with him unto the end. 
And 1 have know^n a dog to lick 
The hand of him that men would kick. 

And I have known a dog to bear 

Starvation's pangs, from day to day. 

With him Vifho had been glad to share 
His bread and meat along the way. 

No dog, however mean or rude 

Is guilty of ingratitude. 

The dog is listed with the dumb. 

No voice has he to speak his creed; 

His messages to human come 

By faithful conduct, and by deed. 

He show^s, as seldom mortals do, 

A high ideal of being true. 

— D. J. FLANAN, '18. 


If you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, 
And make allowance for their doubting, too; 

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, 
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies; 

Or being hated, don't give way to hating. 

And yet don't look too good or talk too -wise; 

If you can dream and not make dreams your master; 

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim; 
If you can meet with triumph and disaster. 

And treat those two imposters just the same; 

If you can bear to hear the truths you've spoken. 
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, 

Or see the things you gave your life to, broken, 

And stoop and build them up with worn-out tools; 

If you can make one hecp of all your wnnings. 
And risk it on one turn of pitch and toss. 

And lose, and start again at your beginnings 
And never breathe a word about your loss; 

If you can force each heart and nerve and sinew 
To serve your purpose long after they are gone 

And then when there is nothing in you 

Except the will which says to them, "Hold on! " 

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue; 

Or walk with kings nor lose the common touch; 
It neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; 

If all men count with you, but none too much; 

If you can fill each unforgiving minute 

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run. 

The earth is yours, and everything that's in it, 
And, what is more, you'll be a man, my son. 



Here's to "the days that might have been 

Here's to "the life 1 might have led"; 
The fame I might have gathered in — 

The glory ways 1 might have sped. 
Great "rnight have been, " I drink to you, 

Upon a throne w^here thousands hail — 
And then — there looms another view — 

1 also "might have been " in jail. 

"land of might have been," we turn 
With aching heart to where you wait; 

Where crimson fires of glory burn. 

And laurel crowns the guarding gate. 

We may not see across your fields 

The sightless skulls that knew^ their woe — 

The broken spears — the shattered shields — 
That "might have been" as truly so. 

"Of all sad words of tongue or pen."' 

So wails the poet, in his pain. 
The saddest are, "It might have been, " 

And world-wide runs the dull refrain. 
The saddest? \ es — but in the jar 

This thought brings to me with its curse, 

1 sometimes think the gladdest are. 

It might have been a blamed sight worse. 


UP TO within a comparatively recent period, we who pen these lines had 
been of a happy and contented disposition, performing our simple du- 
ties with gladness and resting quietly after our labors, with a heartfelt 
sense of gratitude. But the other day we happened to read in the en- 
cyclopedia that a certain portion of the blood traverses the entire circulation 
system in half a minute. You couldn't stop it from doing so, even if you 
tried. It will go on and on, dancing about inside of you in spite of everything 
you say or do. Since then, so far as we ourselves are concerned, all has been 
changed. How can anyone rest, we ask, with a process like that going on 
inside, and absolutely no let-up? It appears that the rest of the blood only 
takes about a minute and a half at the outside. It would probably take a 
trifle longer in the case of a man over six feet high. Some of the corpuscles 
like to lag behind and make an attempt at least to view the scenery; we can- 
not help but adijiire them for that. That is what we should do if we were 
there. But consider for a moment the hopelessness of being permitted to sit 
down by the wayside for a few minutes' rest. We know, of course, the argu- 
ment used for this sort of mad rush where you are traveling over the same 

route every minute or so, no matter how fast you go, you get to know it; you 
caii tell by instinct when there is a "thank you, marm" right ahead, and by 
constant practice, slide over it; you can brace yourself for curves and corners. 
It appears also that there are two kinds of contestants in this ceaseless merry- 
go-round, namely, the red and the white corpuscles. The white ones are the 
laggards, and that, by the way, is what -we would be, we don't know how 
many miles long the route is, but at any rate, the white corpuscles take as 
much time as they can — about a minute and a half. The red fellows are at 
them all the time, urging them on, grabbing them by the coat, pushing them 
from behind, saying rude and boisterous things to them. When they all come 
to a straightaway, the red corpuscles shout out, Step up in front, please, 
plenty of room ahead! " Sometimes there is a strike among the whites, and 
they all try to sit down; one white corpuscle begins preaching the doctrine of 
non-resistance, and being a kind of genius in his way, makes an impression 
upon his period, so they all let up, but in the long run, the marathonic, reds 
have their way. If you really want to knew what is happening inside of you, 
you have only to imagine yourself a corpuscle, with the power to dance 
around this world and back again inside of a minute and a half, in the com- 
pany of a vast aggregation of tourists, who, like yourself, are all coming back 
constantly. You can start anywhere, but say it's at the semilunar valve; 
that s a good place for a lot of lunatics to begin from; you take a hop, skip 

and a jump, and you are through the aoita, and on your way to the suburbs. 
1 here you are, provided with a neat package containing a combination of 
oxygen and assorted nourishment for these remote regions, which you carry 
gaily under your arm and toss into the outlying tissue as you skip by. In a 
ininute, you are plodding along at the rate of a hundred miles an hour or so 
along the venous boulevard, wretchedly lighted. In a jiffy, however, you 
cavort into the heart, and from there into the lungs, where you get a breath 
of fresh air, and then you are off again to India, China, the Dardanelles, 
through the Suez, and back by way of Hoboken and the Hudson tube; as 
for your nervous system, that is backed up against the wall, v^faiting for a 
chance to escape, hoping that a door will open somewhere, so that it can 
rush off outside into space and get a good night's sleep. At least that is 
the way we have felt since w^e have knovi^n abcut it. We trust when this 
meets your eye, you v/ill feel that way, also. Misery loves company. 


In my head, known as my "pate," 
There are bones just twenty-eight. 
In my trunk are fifty-four 
That I add to my bone store, 

While my limbs have plenty more 

Full one hundred twenty-four. 

In my skull, the strong round box 
Which protects my brains from knocks, 

There are eight bones in its wall 

Glad to have them when 1 fall. 

Occipital there is but one; 

One ethmoid and \vedge sphenoid one. 

One frontal bone not very long 

Compared with oak, just twice as strong. 
Parietals there are but two. 
Two temporals will also do. 

There's thirteen bones within my face. 

To know them is not a disgrace. 

One lovk^er jaw and upper, too. 

Help me each day when I must chew. 

Two turbinated, shaped Uke cones. 

Two nasal, malar, palate bones. 

Two lachrymals and vomer one. 

But very large bones there are none. 

The smallest bones are in my ear. 
And help me when I want to hear. 

These bones are small, and hard to see 

The mallet, anvil, stapes wee. 

My bony trunk, it takes good care 
Of all the organs hidden there. 
Its spinal column, very long. 
Has six and tw^enty bones so strong. 
Small bones just seven it doth take, 
A neck or cervical to make. 
With dorsals twelve and lumbars five, 
1 surely need if I would thrive; 
With sacrum one, and lots of ribs, 
Fourteen true, and ten called fibs. 
One coccyx, sternum, hyoid small. 
With two big hip bones, that is all. 

Now, in my limbs just let me see 

I own a clavicle, or key, 

A scapula, or shoulder blade. 

And which for gold 1 wouldn't trade; 

A humerus, not meant for fun, 

A radius and ulner one. 

Eight carpals help to form my wrist; 
Five metacarpals in my fist, 
While all my fingers have each three 
Phalanges that are strong, but wee. 
But my poor thumb can only boast 
Of two phalanges at the most. 



I knew a doctor, years ago, 

Aged forty, fat, and ruddy. 
Who made of puns, both high and low, 

A most important study. 

To men w^ho fasted for a day. 

Whose lungs were but presumption, 
He'd say, in a most joyous way, 

"How great is your consumption! " 

And added that in many vv^ays. 

His heart was sympathetic. 
And how his skill brought forth more praise 

Than any known emetic. 

When called upon to use his power. 

And check some angry tumor. 
He'd cry, 'How can you look so sour? 

You're in delicious humor! " 

And if some sighed, "the room needs air, " 

Before the mourners present, 
He'd smile, and gently say, "forbear. 

Your rheum is very pleasant. " 

My daughter, Annie, on the stoop. 

Fell sick in strangest manner. 
The doctor came, and said "It's croup; 


ipecac you, 


And when 1 asked him, "shall 1 die, " 

After some great entreaties. 
He muttered "yes," w^ith one closed eye. 
Unless you diabetes! " 

And thus for many, many years. 

This creature has been stunning 
Thousands of helpless, suffering ears 

By his atrocious punning. 

But 1 w^ill have my joke on him, 

Although to me 'tis trying; 
For sometime back, I've felt quite slim 

He told me 1 was dying. 

His bill since last July is due. 

And it will make him holler 
To find (1 tell this entre nous) 

1 haven't left a dollar! 



Did you give him a lift? He's a brother of man. 

And bearing about all the burden he can. 

Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, 

And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. 

Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill. 

And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. 

Did you give him a w^ord? Did you show^ him the road. 

Or did you just let him go on with his load? 

Did you help him along? He's a sinner like you. 

But the grasp of your hand might have carried him through. 

Did you bid him good cheer? Just a word and a smile 

Were what he most needed that last w^eary mile. 

Do you know vyrhat he bore in that burden of cares 

That is every man's load, and that sympathy shares? 

Did you try to find out vi'hat he needed from you, 

Or did you just leave him to battle it through? 

Do you know^ Vk'hat it means to be losing the fight. 
When a lift just in time might set everything right? 
Do you know^ what it means — just the clasp of a hand. 
When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? 
Did you ask what it was — why the quivering lip. 
And the glistening tears down the pale cheek that slip? 
Were you brother of his when the time came to be? 
Did you offer to help him, or didn't you see? 

Don't you know it's the part of a brother of man 

To find what the grief is, and help when you can? 

Did you stop when he asked you to give him a lift. 

Or were you so busy you left him to shift? 

Oh, 1 know^ w^hat you meant; w^hat you say may be true. 

But the test of your manhood is. What did you do? 

Did you reach out a hand? Did you find him the road. 

Or did you just let him go by with his load?

A train collision killed a few; "investigation" came; 

The "probe" was sharp, the "probe" was deep, but "no one" was to blame. 

The overworked dispatcher, true, had fallen fast asleep. 

But that was not the railroad's fault — and the "probe" was sharp and deep. 

A hundred souls, a thousand souls were sacrificed to flame; 

The "probe" was long, the "probe" w^as deep, but where to fix the blame"? 

Twas panic killed the audience; the loss of life was due 
To trepidation of the mob," said twelve good men and true. 

Fray God we grow not bitter, but it makes the vision red 

This hellish truth of crushed-out youth, this tale of needless dead! 
No single name shall bear the blame; go "probe" ye ne'er so deep, 
For the cost of living rises high, but the cost of life is cheap.

Hey, there! You little wriggling brat, 
Winkin' and blinkin' on grandma's knees. 
What do you think of this biz? 
Cute little fellow, ain't he, Liz? 

Say, Doc, how much did you say he weighed? 
Ten pounds! Beats Brother John's, anyway. 
Hully gee! What a fist that is; 
Regular Herculese, ain't he, Liz? 

Just see him double up his paw. 
He's goin' to fight his ma. 
Or else his grandma; gee whiz! 
Whoops like an Indian — don't he, Liz? 

Seems to say, as plain as can be, 
im as lonesome as 1 can be; 
Lonesome the poor little fellow is; 
But we'll be good to him, won't we, Liz? 

Say, Doc, are you goin' ? Well good day. 
Here's five dollars; will see you pay day. 
I'm satisfied, and 111 bet she is. 
Pretty good doctor — ain t he, Liz?

"The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne," 
The tools so crude, the Master-hand so stern. 
The price so great, the gain so nearly naught, 
The effort vain, or knowledge dearly bought, 
A broken tool, and naught wherewith to mend ; 
A struggle brief, and then we reach the end! 



Condemn not too quickly. Oh, rrty friend. 

Rather help him on his way. 

With a cheer, a smile and a helping hand. 

The one who has gone astray; 

Remember, you, too, might err some day. 

Withhold the words of anger, friend. 
You have no right to judge a man. 
Until he's been fairly tried. 
Retain the judgment you v/ould give; 
Leave that to mightier Power Above. 

Think of the sorrow you may cause; 
To some mother, wife or child. 
Deep down within the heart you hurt, 
You'll find a feeling pure and true. 
That w^ere he in your place today. 
Would cause you smiles instead of tears. 

Perhaps the stride you've made today. 
If figured out on the square, 
Twould show a big balance, my friend. 
To the one who slipped it to you 
When you most needed a helping hand. 

It's easy to keep one down, friend. 

Just because you happen to be up, 

But let your vi^ord be '1 forgive"; 

You'll then rejoice, my friend. 

That you caused smiles instead of tears. 

—J. J. ZAK, 1915 

doctor! thus the mother cries, 
And there is terror in her eyes. 

We hope you have not come too late; 

The baby's in a dreadful state. 

Her eyes are bright, she cries at night. 

Her little clothes are getting tight. 

And when she sleeps, she kicks and squirms- 

1 fear the little dear's got worms. 

And doctor interrupts Aunt Sue, 
An elderly lady, tried and true, 
This is what most arouses my fears: 
She's too precocious for her years. 
With such a brain 1 fear 'tis vain 
Her health and beauty to maintain; 
This state my point of view confirms — • 
I'm sure the little dear's got worms. 

Yes, doctor, grandmother avers, 

And who can doubt these signs of hers? 

Around her mouth's a line of white. 

She grits her little teeth at night; 

She w^orks her toes, she picks her nose, 

And when she sleeps, her eyes don't close. 

Don't talk to me of various germs 

I knew the little dear's got worms. 

G. C. G, ■ 1 6. 


No higher, holier gift than thine. 

To mortal frail, is given. 
To heal the ills of fallen man, 

A gift of highest heaven. 


The doctor comes, and quick prescribes. 

And then, when we are better. 
He sends a bill that reads like this: 
"To Dr. Cureall, Dr. " 

For when we're in the grasp of pain. 
And he has come and knocked her. 

We surely must admit that we 
Are Dr. to our Dr. 



Tm tired, " he growled, "of the endless round 

Of things im doing each day. 
Each morn, by jinks! at my desk I'm found, 

To work in the same old way. 
1 get nowhere when the day is through; 

I'm not like luckier men — 
Tomorrow I'll be compelled to do 

The same thing over again. " 

That night he dreamed that he heard the trees 

Complain of the tasks they had ; 
Their w^ords moaned by on a sighing breeze 

In tones that were dull and sad ; 
"Each year, ' they ^vaiIed, We must leaf anew — 

The spring time telling us when — 
And year by year it is ours to do 

The same thing over again. ' 

The clock ticked loud from the bedroom wall 

And said in a voice all sour; 
'There's nothing new I may do at all 

But journey by hour and hour. 
I strike for tw^elve and for one and two, 

I shudder at nine and ten, 
For day by day 1 must always do 

The same thing over again. ' 

The earth itself all at once complained: 

I'm heartily tired, I say; 
I've rolled along, though it snowed or rained, 

And whirled for each changing day — 
Through centuries, and through eons, too, 

I've gone the same course — but then 
Each year I sigh that I have to do 

The same thing over again. " 

When a bit of sunshine hits ye. 

After passing of a cloud. 
When a bit of laughter gits ye. 

An yer spine is feelin' proud; 
Don't forget to up and fling it 

At a soul that is feeling blue. 
For the minute that you fling it 

It's a boomerang to you. 



Said an active little microbe, of the scarlet fever brand, 
As a festive germ of typhoid shook him gayly by the hand: 
"Won't you join us at a banquet in the lower part of town? 
All our ultra-smart bacilli are intending to go down. 
There are six delightful children, and, although it's rather weird, 
We've arranged for transportation in Old Doctor Highbrow's beard. 
When he bends to kiss the baby vfe can take a dozen skips 
And secure a certain footing on the rosy angel's lips; 
When he lays his ear on Tommy's heart it ought to be a jest 
For the athletes in our company to hop on Tommy's chest. " 

Said the typhoid microcosm, "Did you know that 1 was reared 
In the sheltering seclusion of Old Doctor Highbrow's beard? " 

Said a roving little germlet, of the diphtheritic sort. 
As an influenza microbe his alert attention caught: 
"If you're looking for excitement 1 can shovsr you where to find 
Something absolutely worthy of your scientific mind. 

There's a dainty miss whose nurses watch each breath the darling draws. 
If she looks a trifle sleepy they investigate the cause; 
Every move she makes is guarded, in a most eugenic way, 
And with ordinary children she must never, never play. 
But to keep her safe from loneliness and brooding and all that 
She's received a birthday present of a big Angora cat. 
I've arranged with Typhus Willie to come with me, man to man. 
When this highly-valued feline snoops about the garbage can. 
You perceive how very easy we can nestle in his fur. 
And when the damsel hugs him we can hop across to her. " 

Said the influenza microbe, "Now you're on the proper track, 
"For there's nothing so exclusive as a purring kitten's back.

Somehow or other my heart to-night 

Is just full of the love of life; 
And the joy of living and loving 

Outweigh the care and strife. 
.And the cross that seems so hard to bear 

The love of a friend makes light. 
So I've just got to say with all my heart 

I'm glad I'm alive to-night. 

The above lines were written after a hearty 
dinner and before a spat with the aforesaid friend. 

These are my sentiments now: 

Somehow or other my stomach to-night 

Is full of nothing but fight; 
And the thought of a bean or ham sandwich 

Fills mv very soul with delight. 
And the friend whom 1 asked" to loan me two bits 

Out of mv sight did dive; , 
So I've just got to say with emphasis, 

"How the Devil- can 1 keep alive?

We're Freshmen down at Bennett, 
■ ■ And we have just loads of fun 
Before the little bell rings 
And the lecture has begun. 

In comes stern Dr. Huber, 

With manners grave but kind; 

We ne'er again shall find. 

He spies our friend McLaughlin 

Upon the far back seat; " 
And he with all his effort tries 

To answer most complete. 

Our dear old friend McCrary, 

The drugs he teaches us; 
Some wonder how we learn them all 

•Tis plain we do not fuss. 

McClurg— what shall we say of him? 

We like him for his wit; 
Well versed on all anatomy. 

And there ,s Prof. Rankin, 

With learning most profound; 

Who teaches us all there is to know 
Each time he comes around. 

Yes! we're students at old Bennett, 
And we all are full on fun; 

But we'll all be sober Doctors 

When the College days are done.

The woman of sentiment said to the Doctor, 

(And the answer he gave her most awfully shocked her;) 

"Dear Doctor, of all the relentless diseases 

That lie in dark wait, without warning to seize us, 

What malady is it so harshly attacks us. 

So wickedly wounds and so ruthlessly racks us, 

That, seeing its victim distressed in such fashion 
You give him at once your profoundest compassion?" 

And the Doctor responded, "1 think 'tis admitted 
The man with the small-pox is most to be pitied! " 



Twas mighty slow to make it seem as if poor Brown was dead; 
'Twas only just the day he died, he had to take his bed ; 
The day before, he played first-base, and ran McFarland down; 
And then to slip away so sly — 'twas not at all like Brown. 

Twas hard for my own life to leave that fellow s life behind; 
'Tis work, sometimes, to get a man well laid out in your mind; 
It wouldn't have shook me very much, long after all was o er. 
To hear a whoop, and see the man go rushing past my door! 

Poor Brown! — so white and newly still virithin his room he lay! 
I called upon him, as it were, at noon the second day. 
A-rushing into Brownie's room seemed a^vkward-like, and queer; 
We hadn't spoken back and forth for something like a year. 

We never pulled together square a single night or day; 
\Vhate'er direction 1 might start. Brown went the other way; 
(Excepting in our love affairs; we picked a dozen bones 
About a girl Smith tried to get, who fin'lly married Jones.) 

He worked against me in our class, before my very eyes; 

He opened up and scooped me square out of the Junior prize; 

I never wanted any place, clean from the last to first, 

But Brown w^as sure to have a friend who wanted it the worst; 

In the last campus rush, v^^e came to strictly business blows, 
And with the eye he left undimmed, 1 viewed his damaged nose; 
In short, I came at last to feel — I own it with dismay — 
That life would be worth living for, if Brown were out the way. 

He lay within his dingy room, as white as drifted snow — 
Things all around were wondrous neat — the women fixed them so; 
Twas plain he had no hand in that, and naught about it knew; 
To've seen the order lying round, it would have made him blue! 

A bright bouquet of girlish flowers smiled on the scene of death. 
And through the open vvrindow came a sweet geranium-breath; 
Close-caged, a small canary bird, with glossy, yellow^ throat 
Tripped drearily from perch to perch, and never sung a note; 

With hair unusually combed, sat poor McFarland near. 
Alternately perusing Greek, and wrestling with a tear; 
A homely little girl of six, for some old kindness' sake. 
Sat sobbing in a corner near, as if her heart would break; 

( ContiniieJ on next page ) 

The books looked pale and wretched-like, almost as if they knew. 
And seemed to be a-whispering their titles to the view; 
His rod and gun were in their place; and high w^here all could see. 
Gleamed jauntily the boating-cup he won last year from me; 

I lifted up the solemn sheet; the honest, manly face 

Had signs of study and of toil that death could not erase; 

As western skies at twilight mark where late the sun has been, 

Brown's face showed yet the mind and soul that late had burned within. 

He looked so grandly helpless there upon that lonely bed 

Ah me! these manly foes are foes no more when they are dead! 

Old boy," said I, " tw^as half my fault; this heart makes late amends. 
1 grasped the white cold hand in mine — and Brown and I were friends. 



Were the whole world as good as you not an atom better 

Were it just as pure and true. 
Just as true and pure as you; 
Just as strong in faith and works; 
Just as free from crafty quirks; 
All extortion, all deceit; 
Schemes its neighbors to defeat; 
Schemes its neighbors to defraud; 
Schemes some culprit to applaud — 
Would this world be better? 

If the whole world followed you — followed to the letter — 

Would it be a nobler world. 

All deceit and falsehood hurled 

From it altogether; 

Malice, selfishness, and lust 

Banished from beneath the crust 

Covering human hearts from view — 

Tell me, if it follow^ed you. 

Would the world be better?

Break into song 

Laugh down the way 

Fill your life full 

Of dance and play 

Pause where the little children run, 

And watch their curls toss in the sun. 

Join in their calls 

And shouts of glee 

And never, never, never be 

Too hurried to stop for a time, 

Where birds sing and where glories climb; 

Your bank account may suffer some 

If you pause where the wild bees hum. 

And you may not make so much cash 

If you shop where the \vaters splash 

To hear the birds sing overhead 

But man you'll be a long time dead, 

And living means to love, to be 

One v^rith the birds and babes of glee. 



1 do not like sulphuric acid; 

1 am not fond of prussian blue; 
I cannot feel serene or placid 

While eating chlorine in my stew. 
I do not like to feed my boys on 

Arsenic salts, refined or crude — 
In short, 1 do not think that poisons 

Amount to very much as food. 

It's always been an open question, 

Whose answer I could never find, 
If copper oxide aids digestion. 

Or formalin improves the mind. 
I've never tried a daily diet 

Composed of acetanelid. 
I know a man that used to try it, 

And now^ he's sorry that he did. 

But 1 suppose that I must acquire 

A taste for viands of this sort. 
For I certainly don't desire 

To peeve the U. S. Supreme Court. 
And following the rule of reason, 

Of which said court, is very keen.

And spice my pie with Paris green.

Four years we have wondered, 
And often have blundered. 

Good old "Nineteen Fifteen." 
We innocent creatures 
Have vexed many teachers. 

Good old "Nineteen Fifteen." 
Past moments of pleasure 
We will fondly treasure 

When from college we're free. 
The chain nowr wre'll sever 
That held fast together 

Good old "Nineteen Fifteen." 


In the good old college time. 

In the good old Western clime; 

We've strutted through the spacious halls I 

the very last time. 
We now uphold our gold and blue, to it w. 

evermore be true, 
And very loyal we will be 
To the class of Nineteen Fifteen. 

— ZAK, 1915. 

The world's now old, but likes to laugh; 

New puns are hard to find. 
The largest editorial stafi 

Can't tickle every mind. 

Who loves not women, wine and song 
Remains a fool his whole life long. 
But who his whole life loves the three 
A hundred times a fool will be. 

So if you read a stale old joke 

Put out m modern guise. 
Don't knock and say, the thing's a fake. 
Just laugh don't be too wise.

A student was 1 at college you see. 

My purse was always light. 
I dined at places where lunches were free, 

To get rid of my apetite. 

1 discovered, however, this couldn't last. 
You had to spend money or git. 

So 1 bought me a peck of navy beans, 
And started right home with it. 

I soaked two pounds for one whole day. 

And cooked them in a pot. 
I cooked them several hours or more. 

Then ate them while red hot. 

I decided that beans were a student's dish. 

And not very expensive eating. 
A couple of pounds would go a long way 

Toward reducing the cost of living. 

But after six meals of this wonderful food, 

1 could not eat so well. 
My appetite suddenly disappeared. 

And 1 craved for something swell. 

So I decided they're not a student's dish. 

They are better in the can. 
And if you wish to economize. 

Do not use my subtle plan. 

Beans, beans, glorious beans, 

They pack in snug and tight. 
There they remain, and remain, and remain, 

'Till dislodged with dynamite.

For teeth or hair

And rescue their piano, too.

Don't blame it all on your professors, 

You have yourself to blame; 
Don't shame the name of dear old Bennett, 

For in any other school it's just the s 
Your marks are what you make them 

When you bum both night and day; 
And if they hint you need to study stronger 
You had better study just a little longer. 

Don't blame it all on your professors.
