To The Memory of Our Beloved 

Dr. J. Ivan Dufur 


The gayesx fioiirs trip h'ghtly bv 

AnA leave the faintest trace 

But the deep, deep trac\ that sorrow wears 

Time never can eface. 

It is with the greatest sincerity that we may say "to know 
him was to love him." Each one of us reaHzes a personal loss in 
the passing of a dynamic personality hidden in a dignified and 
mild-mannered gentleman and scholar. To find a man who gave 
more of his undivided interests to promoting Osteopathy, to per- 
petrating enduring friendships, and to manifesting a responsibility 
of intrinsic depth and sincerity for the numerous needs of human- 
ity, would be an illimitable task. It is with great sorrow that we 
realize the VII. Volume of Synapsis cannot be shared and enjoyed 
by Dr. Dufur, "the little General," originator of this annual ex- 
pression of college activities. 

The College and Profession. 


"The law of worthy life is fundamentally the law of 
strife. It is only through labor, painful effort by grim 
energy and resolute courage that we move on to better 

Theodore Roosevelt 

We turn the pages of life to another chapter in the 

history of our College and Profession. We shall not eulogize 

the achievements of the past, but rather concentrate our 

efforts on the symbolizing of a certain and steady progress 

which we can not fail to recognize when we consider 

the youth of our Philosophy. It is our pious hope 

that this publication may parallel the precocity 

of Osteopathy's meteoric ascension and 

that it may be an inspiration to our 

successors to avoid the eroding 

sameness that marks the 

gradual defeat of even 

a worthy cause. 















That tower of strength luhich stands joresquare 
To all the winds that blow.

Qhemistry Jl^boratory 

We can honestly boast of one of the most modern and completely equipped 
laboratories in this city, supervised by a staff of thoroughly trained and experienced 
chemists. Many interesting and absorbing hours have been spent in this department 
of our College, and it is our hope that the facilities this laboratory presents will prove 
an inspiration to those who follow us and are afforded the opportunity to persue 
there the secrets of the most intricate and interesting of sciences. May the many 
unsolved mysteries that the world is waiting to learn someday be disclosed therein. 

This laboratory contains two hundred and twenty-five lockers and will accom- 
modate one hundred students at one session. 

T) is section laboratory 

Curtains are here raised to divulge the secrets of human anatomy to the under' 
classes. This modern laboratory harbors twenty'cight tables and will accommodate 
one hundred and forty students. It is equipped with a refrigeration plant that will 
preserve thirtyfive cadavera. A recent addition to this department is equipment for 
brain dissection wherein a splendid practical objective is obtained of the most intricate 
of cellular structures, the human brain. The lighting and ventilation on this floor are 
such that the student is virtually as well equipped as a surgeon to perform his ex' 
ploratory work. In addition, the hygiene of the laboratory is under the supervision 
of Gilbert A. Gavin, whose clever methods of embalming preserves the subjects under 
examination in a manner least offensive to the student. 

The Qlinic 

One need only visit this section of the college on a clinic day to appreciate the 
significance of an architecturally obscured haven for the physically incompetent. The 
clientele of the clinic have so far surpassed the expectations of our builders that we 
wonder how large an addition to our out-patient department will be necessary five 
years hence. 

At the present time there are thirty-seven treating rooms each equipped with an 
osteopathic table and stool. In these rooms approximately one hundred and fifty pa- 
tients are treated and examined in one day by student or practicing doctors. 

The clinical organization consists of the departments of Osteopathy, Neurology, 
Physical-Therapy, Pediatrics, Cardio-Respiratory, Genito-Urinary, Dermatology, Proct- 
ology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat, and Podiatrics. 


We feel a note of seriousness as we reflect upon the shrine of the skillful surgeon. 
It is here that many lives have been preserved and born and where we hope in the 
years to come that few will be lost. 

The refreshing cleanliness of scrupulously polished metal-work and azure-tinted 
wells are replaced by the necessity of resorting to two-tone effects. Even a cursory 
glance at this spacious and scientifically conceived operating pit suggests surgery con- 
ducted with utmost efficiency and circumspect asepsis. The Amphitheatre will seat two 
hundred and fifty spectators, each of whom has an unobstructed view of the procedures

Dr. Holden made his entry to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy as head 
of the Department of Biologic Sciences. This was by no means the extent of his 
teaching ability for he could aptly substitute in any of the other Departments. During 
the World War he answered the call to arms and acted as Sergeant-Major in the 538th 
Engineers A. E. F., at the close of the war he continued his career at the College and 
received his degree in 1922. The Board of Directors elected Dr. Holden to the 
responsible position as Dean of the College in 1924 upon the resignation of a worthy 
predecessor, Dr. Flack. 

Dr. Holden's officiation as Dean of the College can scarcely be paralleled, for it 
was through his diligent and diplomatic efforts that the glorious edifice which now 
stands, bearing the name of Osteopathy was started and completed. Too much can 
not be said of Dr. Holden's administration and in view of his past accomplishments we 
look with eager anticipation to the continuance of a brilliant advancement, through the 
medium of a far-sighted, intellectual, professional teacher and scholar.

Qreetings to the Qlass of igsi 

If there has been any one certain thing about medical education during the past ten 
years it is that no one has been entirely satisfied with it. In comparable sense the 
disposition of the osteopathic curriculum to respond to various temptations and im- 
portunities has stirred up criticisms and led to reforms. But in general the proclivity 
of osteopathic teaching has remained sanely and advisedly along orthodox lines and 
with sensible regard for impeccable fundamentals. 

Today's graduate enjoys a material advantage over the young physicians of a 
decade ago. His profession is undubitably better and more favorably known. A 
forward impetus is prevalent in our current organization — the entire osteopathic 
domain is "looking up". 

The essential purpose of the College curriculum is to prepare the student for a 
useful life in the field of practice of Osteopathy. It is neither the aim nor the design 
of the faculty to turn out mere cultists deaf to the postulates of logic or blind to the 
evolvements of science. 

Sentiment for things osteopathic is given wholesome encouragement in our schools, 
but always with deference to sound reasoning and in the light of scientific revelation. 

The College is mindful of its duty to the student in cultural and ethical training. 
The presentment and emulation of high principles and proprieties are mapped out side 
by side with art and science. 

It has been observed during the last fifteen years that "preaching" has given away 
to "teaching" of the fundamental osteopathic concept in our Colleges. 

Laboratory experiment, cadaver, and mamkin are votive offerings to nature's 
acumen, but the clinic patient will always be the most exemplary expression of 
osteopathic wisdom. 

Individual and section instruction in osteopathic mechanics and osteopathic 
diagnosis and technique is the most salutary innovation in the modern curriculum. 

The price of organized medicine's rejection of Andrew Taylor Still's teaching 
without investigation and is opposition to osteopathic discoveries can be measured 
only in terms of infinite human misery and mortality. 

The greatest need in Osteopathy today, and it will long continue to be of 
paramount consideration, is a numerical increase of general practitioners. Surgery 
and other specialties are at best but garnishments of old'School practice. True osteo' 
pathic art will form the keystone of tomorrow's therapeutic dominion while osteopathic 
science still holds the rationale of many of the mysterious workings of life.

Senior History 

President Norman Warburton 

Vice-President ROBERT Warner 

Secretary Gyneth Chapman 

Treasurer Willard Shackelton 

Early in the fall season of 1927, a group of individuals gathered one evening, to 
become acquainted, one with the other, and to meet those members of the Faculty of 
the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy who would guide them in the first studies 
which were so essential to a later understanding of subjects pertaining to diagnosis 
and treatment of disease. There were in this group an aggregate of one hundred and 
seven persons— Many with a definite idea of some day attaining the privilege of being 
"Doctors of Osteopathy", others as is apparent from the fact that they are no longer 
with us, without any idea as to why they had come to Philadelphia. Be that as it may, 
the next few succeeding weeks found them well organized, with Harry Weisbecker, 
President; Angus Cathie, Vice-President; Evangeline Avery, Secretary; Edwin Gants^ 
Treasurer. In spite of the many difficulties presenting themselves in the form of 
various "ologies", the class sponsored a dance, held at the Oak Lane Review Club, 
which was enjoyed by all, including the Sophomores, who, by the way, were well 

The Sophomore year was at hand in what now seems to have been a short space 
of time. Under the class officers— "Art" German, President; Girard Campbell, Vice- 
President; Evangeline Avery, Secretary; Arthur McKelvie, Treasurer; the year passed 
rather uneventfully, with frequent "stories" of there soon being a new P. C. O. Direct 
action was initiated when the Board of Directors of the College called for volunteers 
to solicit funds for the great project. The Class of '31, answered this call in a manner 
that was surpassed by no other class in raising funds from our individual incomes as 
well as aiding solictors in the general campaign. Aside from a dance given us by the 
Class of '32, there were no other important events of the year. 

The Junior year commenced at Nineteenth and Spring Garden Streets, as had the 
two preceeding years. Late in the fall the College moved to its present site. How 
proud we were of our new home and our participation in making its construction pos- 
sible! Although not having the honor of being the first class to graduate from so im- 
pressive an edifice, we were privileged in being the first class to serve its entire term 
in the new ^clinic. It was our first opportunity to put into practical application those 
"principles" laid down by the "old doctor" and to see the results of applying the 
technique used in this, his method of therapeutics. The pleasure experienced by each 
of us in observing improvement in the conditions of our individual patients, and the 
thought that we were actually aiding some fellow-being in his struggle against on- 
coming disease or deformity, more than repaid us for our efforts. Time passed quickly 
in our new environment except for an epidemic of "spring fever" the only treatment 
for which was the "Junior Prom," prescribed by Bill Miner and gratefully received 
by all so afflicted. 

Class officers for this year were: Norm Warburton, President; "Bob" Warner, 
Vice-President; Agatha Crocker, Secretary; Willard Shackehon, Treasurer. Of these, 
all but Agatha Crocker, who was replaced by Gwyneth Chapman, were re-elected to 
office during their Senior year. 

Our last year in preparing to depart from the halls of Alma Mater into the 
Realms of Practise has been spent in receiving more practical instruction in Special 
Clinical work and Student Interneships in the Hospital. Some have become more in- 
terested in one type of clinical practice than in others. Some are thinking of a general 
practice; others are hoping for a chance to spend a year in the Hospital as a Resident 
Physician. In any event all are looking forward to their graduation in June. During 
the year we rallied once more to the aid of our school and hospital by giving a benefit 
dance in October, to which all classes were invited, the results of which were gratefully 
received by those who manage the affairs of our institution. 

In saying farewell, we wish to express our gratitude to those who have so gener- 
ously given of our time and knowledge that we might "take the torch of Osteopathy", 
to hold it high so all the world might see; and to thank them for all they have done 
so willingly to help us lay a foundation for future research and endeavor in our chosen 
profession. To those who follow in our footsteps may they successfully accomplish 
what they have undertaken. To our Classmates success in every undertaking attempted.

Senior T^rophecy 




(Editor's Note- Acting under the premise that there is a reason for everything, 
even such a prophecy as this, editorial "we" discovered the "propheter" musing some- 
thing like this:) 

"Selah, selah— even unto 1950 A. G. (after graduation). There is a great weak- 
ness upon me — a stuttering of lights — a cacophony of sounds assail the tender 
tympanic membranes of my ears, ears long persecuted by the oratory of grim visaged 
professors. The panhellenic conclave of antecedant prophets ring me in the irony 
of their ga^es, pressure is being brought to bear upon me, causing me great distress 
and dyspnea, to say nothing of sense of fullness in the precordium. Woe is me — every 
exit is closed; escape is impossible; it is fate — I must look into the crystal of life and 
watch the future pass in review." 

Of course I could do nothing, so I allowed him to rave on.^ 

"A cosmopolitan scene comes into view — a crowded auditorium — people of 
scientific mein, rapt and moved as Dr. Girard W. Campbell, Osteopathic physician par 
excellence, golf par 82, demonstrates the new Campbell pan for panhistorectomies, 
usuable in barn or kitchen surgery. 

A quick shift — lodge rooms with deep seated chairs and well seated Osteopaths; 
the tenth meeting of the Universal Cardio- Vascular Society. Officers are elected — Dr. 
Alphonso Merola, left ventricle — Dr. Paul Young, aortic stenosis — Dr. James C. 
Luker, auricular flutter. Subsequently these eminents suff"er severe cardiac embarrass- 
ment as a movement is made to close the meeting. Presumably this is because they are 
unable to pick up the murmurs of approval, having forgotten their stethoscopes. 

Blue grass of Kentucky — Ambition now gratified. Dr. Eugenia Coffee strides 
complacently among the results of her work. Gone are the mountain stills (out of 
sight), and now the doctor's time is spent in trying to sell these rugged people Osteo- 
pathy — but it doesn't go down so easily. 

Dr. Harlon Bartholomew seems to have done a DaCosta by joining the local fire 
department. It seems that Bart while at P. C. O., in the hydrotherapy department, 
became a victim of the habit of squirting water at people. 

Now we see trees bending in the breeze, sloping lawns studded with buildings that 
hug the ground. This is the "Home of the Big Muscle, the Broad Chest, the Sturdy 
Hamstrings," owned and operated by Dr. Benjamin F. Adams. Here special care is 
given to boys with much money and thick skulls. Music has its charm so Dr. Kenneth 
Zwicker is in charge of orchestration — here even the bony lesions move with a "boop- 

Heart of the Sierra's! A pair of searchers, Drs. Frederick Dannin and William 
Desotnek are searching most diligently over the rocky surfaces of the mountain ridges 
for the home of the kidney stone. 

Dr. Angus Cathie, the bunion specialist, is on his feet again. He recently suf- 
fered a nervous breakdown after taking up eye, ear, nose and throat work as a 
specialty — it seems he couldn't make both ends meet. 

While Dr. James Christian has spread Osteopathy into the four corners of the 
world by the medium of his magnetic voice and the influence of his timely topics, 
nevertheless he still returns home for the week-ends. His book "Osteopathy Under 
the Microscope," is for sale at all the leading drug stores. Sales production is en- 
trusted to Dr. Warren Baldwin who is very happy doing his job since it gives him 
his time to attend to his practice and to mind the children. 

Drs. Isadore Goldner and Leroy Lovelidge have also edited a book entitled "Labor, 
the Silent Drama". The valuable data for this book was secured from the delivery 
of a series of 113 "still" births. 

Shades of the Sahara! Who do we see trudging among the sand dunes, shattered 
temples and sand burnished rums of the old world, but Drs. Berger, Otto, Bowden and 
Randolph. These men in the metamorphosis of life have gone archaeologic and now 
roll the bones of the ancient Syrians and Egyptians, even as of yore. 

Rah, Rochester! Dr. Leroy Conklin has entered upon the sixth year of successful 
operation of the v>/orld famed and widely renowned "Conklin Charm School for 
Chlorotic Females", conducted under his personal and private supervision. 

How literary some of the old brigade seem to have become — ^here is Doc Kring, 
the boy prodigy, just finishing the "Osteopathic Compend, or Meedless drugs, their 
actions, reactions, and the States in which they can be used." 

I should live so long! I see Dr. Jay Pekow, ambulatory to the last, with his office 
on top of the Bulova Watch Building, so that he can always be on Time. Abe says 
that 4 hours of sleep per night are enough for anyone and if it isn't, one can always 
sleep on a treating table. 

Now a laboratory; experimentation, concentration and finally success. Dr. George 
Miller has just synthesized green vegetables with beef steak flavors. He now hopes 
to grow a new low bush variety of "hot roast beef sandwiches". 

Ton my word if it isn't Dr. Bailey T. Flack, Dean of the Osteopathic and 
Neuropathic College of Peterborrow, Pa. Bailey's two children are both sick with 
sprue, but after being treated by Dr. Harold Weber they always quaintly remark: 
"Gee, Dr. I feel better alreadv". 

Invisable rays? Yes. Dr. Jimmie Reid, noted roentgenologist, is seen experiment- 
ing to determine if the long or the short ray is curing fibroid in the paramecium 
vivax today. He has recently returned from a National Convention; while there he 
received injuries to his right wrist, but recently has been able to slap people on the 
back with his left hand. 

Well, well — here comes Dr. Stephen Deichelman from his printers with some 
new literature that has just come off the press. The circular is headed by the in- 
scription : 

"Paretics" — benefit by my experience! 

Twelve hundred cases show specific cure by the new grapefruit injection method. 
In Dike's new sanatorium all conveniences are had. His latest addition is an oval turf 
track where all those that once played the "ponies" can now ride them. Drs. Mc- 
Kelvie and Nay lor come trotting smartly along; Steve, having a cold, wins by a nose. 

Dr. Leonard Heech is gaining much notoriety (pardon, I mean publicity) thru' 
his charity course in "Advice to Adolescents" that is given to the Girl's High School 
of Rochester. 

What can this be. Just an operating room. Dr. Harold Gorham is having his feet 
lifted by the eminent "plastered surgeon" Dr. Jewel. After this was completed it 
was decided to remove said Dr. Gorham's vocal chords, so that he could not talk back 
to himself in his office. Dr. Jewel is receiving telegrams of felicitations from many 
and a few remonstrance from Drs. Gants, Steinberg, Gajeway, who offer in argument 
that the next New York Society meeting can not possibly maintain its usual "Cheerio" 
spirit without Gorham to lead their quartette. 

Dad of them all! Of course no one else but Dr. Charles Sauter and his nine 

Dr. Bashline of Grove City, is now calling Dr. Dale Jamison in as consultant. 
Also Dale, has just originated a new bloodless surgery technique for the removal of 
false teeth. It's his secret, people. 


H K. Mulford Co., have Dr. John Glenn, syringe in hand, under contract for 
the disposal of their salvarsan products. Johnny in his enthusiasm is fond of saying: 
"The children cry for it" or "Should Your best friend know?" 

Sunflowers and prairie — Dr. Joe Sikorski, left Mr. duPont in Wilmington, and is 
now practicing in Machuska, Mich. He and Gordon are still the two big "Gyn" men 

Dr. Robert Snow is specializing. His specialty is making money. In his last in- 
terview with the Associated Press he gives full credit to his no credit plan of finance, 
and his ruthlessness in charging as much as possible. His exorbitant fee at the present 
time is $1.35 for office visit and $.25 more in the home. 

Success: Finally Dr. William Guinand, thru' political influence and personal 
contact has had himself appointed as chief insultant in "The Home for Destitute 


Dr. William Miner has a new racket. He is now inspecting the immigrants at 
Ellis Island, for the cause of the business depression. Dr. Willard Shackleton, his able 
assistant, stays in the office and collects the $10.00 for a treatment. 

Dr. Aram Renjilian, recently bought in the east end of Long Island for the purpose 
of raising fancy vegetables, which he sells to the west end of Long Island; his Osteo' 
pathy he divides between the east and the west ends of Long Island. 

An ocean liner! Dr. Robert Wilson is seen returning home from Turkey with a 
very discontented look on his face. It is all because Turkey has abolished poligomy 
and Bob was looking for variety. 

Ah Ravena! Dr. Walter Rohr, wealthy philanthropist has propagated a fund for 
propagation of non-propagating guinea pigs. This endowment also has a special clause 
which provides a dietician and a set of silver feeding forks for the guinea pigs at 
P. C. O. 

Disproving the old axiom that "never the twain shall meet," Drs. Agatha Crocker 
and Gwyneth Chapman have established joint offices for the treatment of arthritic con- 
ditions in pensioned bartenders. 

Dr. Martin Beeman is doing a nice business in the care and treatment of "house- 
maid's knee". The doctor is also doing very well with the house maids. 

A reunion — after long years of separation Dr. Foster D. Clark meets Dr. Fred 
Brown Cushman with a goodly shaking of hands and twirling of mustache on the 
part of Dr. Foster D. Clark. Before they separate the usual question arises as to 
which was first, the hen or the egg. 

Moaning low. Here is Dr. Merritt Davis newly returned from Europe where 
he demonstrated his saxophone anesthesia. All that is necessary is a sound proof 
room, and a saxophone; the anesthestist blows upon the "sax" vigorously and the 
patient during the stage of excitement butts his head against the tile wall until uncon- 
scious, in this manner saving much in the cost of ether. Pat. pending. 

Honor to whom honor is due. Much credit must be given to Dr. Beatrice Kratz 
for her development of first rib technique that is applicable to second ribs on the fair- 
way or on the green. 

Dr. Samuel Taylor of Chester, was the host of Dr. William Lumley, for the 
week-end, It seems that Bill's wife v/as away and Bill had gone "chicken-hearted". 

Dr. Edward Theiler, now refuses to treat more than ten patients per day as he 
claims that he is unaccustomed to hard work, and besides he never has more than ten 

Drs. Wilbur Kell and Troy Stratford, while hunting in the north woods shot 
and fatally wounded a charley-horse, for which offence they have been sentenced to 
?iO days in the College clinic. 

Dr. Jack Fields, just down from Canada for the day, saw the damage done by 
these amateur sports and rushed to render first aid with his Miller lymphatic pump, 
but arrived too late to save the day (pardon me) horse. 

Dr. Deland Towner miraculously escaped death yesterday when in his Austin 
he drove into the exhaust pipe of a truck thinking it was the Holland tunnel. 

I see money, money, everywhere! Why it comes from a course given by Drs. 
William Ellis and Robert Warner for the small sum of $250.00. These wide awake 
physicians are selling basketball training, complete in 6 weeks, to the proud plumber 
and brick layer who won't accept a wage cut. 

What sort of man is this? Only Dr. Harry Weisbecker who has increased his 
chest expansion 6 3-4 inches by blowing into his brother's basal metabolism machine. 


Dr. Harry Sweeney has brought suit against Dr. David Morrison in the Court 
of Complaints, stating that on the first of the month in their usual monthly game of 
double solitaire, Dr. Morrison was guilty of fraud. Dr. Morrison counter-states that 
Dr. Sweeney had two ice cream sodas and was not able to detect fraud under the 
most obvious circumstances. 

Dr. William Nairn has just returned from a prolonged stay in Florida. He 
stayed so long that he missed much of his morning practice, but Bill claims that this 
is merely a residium of those days when he tarried around the hospital furnaces 
and he would get there just the same. 

Dr. Isabel Johnson, has arisen from sixth assistant to third assistant of one of the 
largest Osteopaths in the country. She doesn't care for further advancement now as 
her own practice keeps her so busy that she only has 6 nights to herself. 

Dr. Wayne Hammond is now sixth assistant and would have been iifth were it 
not for the fact that he broke 2 of a wealthy patients ribs and when she complained 
he lost his chance for promotion. 

Music, sweet and low! Dr. Norman Warburton has made himself famous in song 
by writing a touching little ballad called: "Asleep in the Curve of a Sacrum". He 
has been trying to explain the theme of it to Irving Berlin for many weeks, but Irving 
only says it sounds like hot air to him. 

Woe is me! Dr. R. H. Rickards is still sitting and pondering where the cool 
zeyphers blow, at Du fur's. : as the result of this prophecy.

J. Walter Axtell 

"Let the world slide, let ih: world J 
A fig for eare, end a fig for woe! 
If I ecn't pay, why I cen owe. 
And death makes equal the high am 

If you were to seek the world over, 
scan the planets of the universe, and 
sweep the corners of heaven, you would 
find no better natured man, no easier- 
going man, no less worried man, no more 
contented man, than J. Walter Axtell. 
A student of Syracuse University, Walt 
plays the saxophone and "fiddles" his 
way through Osteopathy. A musician 
to the core his sax and his rhythm are 
well-known to the best night clubs clear 
from Rochester to Atlantic City. He not 
only plays his way through college, but 
plays right into the hearts of his fellow- 
men. Of a keen, probing, observant 
mind, we are sure his jovial alacrity will 
prevent his ever playing into the hands 
of anyone trying to take advantage of 
his good-nature. 

William M. Barnhurst 

"Our enemies have beat us to the hip. 
It is more worthy to leap in ourselves 
Than tarry till they push us."

Barney is the good-natured swimming 
expert in our class, with a grin for every 
one and a spirit "dat co-operates wit de 
brudders," especially when a subject for 
demonstration is badly needed by a 
lecturing prof. Good-natured, and with 
a grin did we say? Yes, but God help 
the man who tries to get fresh with 
Barney or hand him a line. For he 
doesn't argue, or controvert, or disucss, 
he smacks 'em. And man, what a smack! 
Being a husky six-footer with Herculean 
shoulders, and a punch like the kick of 
a mule, it behooves any man to look 
twice and think thrice before crossing 
Barney. His aggressive qualities are sure 
to go far toward making him a good

Frank makes up the other member of 
the partnership of "Beall and Seyfried/' 
Coming to us last year from Kirksville 
from whence he got his B. S. degree after 
studying in Syracuse University, think- 
ing more than he talks, and choosing his 
acquaintances for their qaulity rather 
than for their quantity, we feel that we 
can describe him no better than the above 
verse does it. We have no fears for 
Frank's future success, for his education 
has been a broad one — we almost forgot 
to mention that there is a Mrs. Beall, 
and while we implore pardon for not 
writing more about him, we refer you 
to the other member of his partnership 
for more detailed information. 

"Milky 's" amiable disposition and 
pleasant ways have done much toward 
curbing that animosity which naturally 
arises toward a class treasurer when he 
calls upon them for necessary cash. But 
it doesn't stop with his classmates. Back 
m Birdsboro, where giant steel plants 
clang and blast furnaces roar day and 
night. Milky dines with prominent 
citizens and sups with the head council- 
men. In Osteopathy he is the Big 
Athlete. His athletic career began with 
track and basketball back in Birdsboro 
High School, and extended thru Franklin 
and Marshall College to our own team. 
We feel he is going to make the M.D.'s 
quake in their boots when he goes back 
to the hometown to practice.

Ben is one of these iron men of whom 
we feel incapable to "write his Epitaph." 
Going thru life with a physical disability 
that would crush many men, he is ever 
ready with a cheery good-natured smile 
and a Herculean handclasp. We are well 
informed that Ben and his pillow are 
hard to separate — either that or he uses 
a silent alarm-clock for we usually look 
around in the morning and say, "where 
is Larry"? In spite of Ben's love for 
Morpheus he maintains a good standing 
in the class and more than this he took 
a jump way ahead of most of us by doing 
some splendid work in the clinic last 
summer. It is a wonder to us how Ben 
handles his patients that are left over 
from his summer's practice along with 
the addition of the newcomers, but it 
simply shows you can't keep a good man

Jim hails from the part of Long Island 
where estates of bankers, lawyers, and 
movie actresses constitute his next door 
neighbors. Enlisting in U. S. Navy as 
Able Seaman, he soon won an appoint- 
ment to Midshipman in United States 
Naval Academy of Annapolis. This, 
together with his foremanship of a gang 
of Tree Surgeons up on Long Island, 
tended to develop splendid qualities as 
an organizer and a handler of men 
which were not cooled by two summers' 
work as a Frigidaire installator. For 
Jim is Editor of our year book, a job 
calling for no mean ability, where one 
must be able to soothe his enemies and 
keep his friends from becoming faint 
hearted. Nor is he a second-rate phys- 
ician. But is hailed by the class as a 
splendid technician, and a doctor who 
does not confine his skill to his ten

Emily is our debutante, unconcerned 
no matter what may happen. Everyone 
calls her a friend, and such she is ready 
to be. Perhaps we might with reason, 
name her Diplomat for if the fairer sex 
entered such service Emily would long 
ago have been lost to P. C. O.! Her home 
is among the Oranges in New Jersey, 
but her summers have always been spent 
in Massachusetts. She has not yet told 
us which State-boards she will take. But 
in either State, we predict an interesting 
professional life for Emily E. D. Boone — 
unless perchance marriage interferes

'^So be i;Tew up, a destined work to do. 

And lived to do it: four long suffering years'

And tb:n he heard the hisses change to cheers." 


We can pay Bill no greater tribute 
than apply to him the above verse which 
was originally written of the Great 
Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln. For 
during his professional studies Bill has 
encountered all the vicissitudes of 
prejudice, enmity, and setbacks, that the 
goddess of misfortune could wish on any- 
one. And when short-sighted superficial 
men said he would never make a physi- 
cian, he has kept his peace and poise 
and proved his mettle. Bill is now one 
of the best loved and most highly respect- 
ed members of the class and he has ex- 
emplified the statement that tenacity of 
purpose will win a just reward. 

Earle H. Brett 

"From toil he wins his spirit light, 
From busy day the peaceful night; 

Rich, from the yery want of wealth. 

In heaven's best treasures, peace and health. 

Earl is a quiet, unassuming fellow with 
a well earned reputation. Difficult to 
interpret, his friendship, once made, is 
of the enduring type which will always 
root for the under dog. When Earl 
first entered our College his disposition 
was of the iron barrier type. The strug' 
gles of life had made of him a cynic. 
Daily contact with men with whom he 
became well acquainted, and the 
magnetism imparted to his nature from 
a professional brotherhood seems to have 
changed him from a misanthrop to a 
philanthrop. So that now we do not 
think of Earl the cynic, but of Earl the 
friend in need and the good fellow. 


"My mind to me a kingdom is: 
Such present joys therein I find. 

That it excels all other bliss 

That earth affords or grows by kind." 

Dick is one of these fellows that a 
good class just couldn't get along with' 
out. He never says much, and to the un- 
observant he may appear to never do 
much. But we who know him have 
learned to depend on him for taking 
care of little odd jobs that everyone else 
has fallen down on. And when we 
know him still better we find that his 
life is crammed full of just such work 
and we find him doing it with a willing 
spirit, without grumbling or complaint. 
Gentle of nature ard of friendly dis- 
position is Dick, and a man well liked 
throughout the College.

"Cal" has secret opinions about many 
things but discreetly keeps them to him- 
self. However, he startles us when he ad' 
dresses the profs with details of subjects 
most of us know little about. An artist 
to the core with the typical artistic 
temperament "Cal" is rather hard to 
make friends with and few of us know 
just how we rate in his estimation, but 
when we do find him inclined toward 
friendliness he measures up to good 

As an indication of his ability one 
need only glance at the neat lettering

Another student who can win 
scholastic honors, without creating 
animosity thru competition, for his 
modest good-nature earns him the reputa- 
tion of good-fellow. Like so many stu- 
dents, the promising qualities of Gene 
were not brought out till after two years 
connection with the College. Since this 
time he has taken on new responsibilities 
in the capacity of Vice-President of the 
Junior Class and as Photographic Editor 
of the Synapsis. Any one who has 
noticed Gene dodging around the school 
trying to make appointments for a dozen 
people within the same hour can ap- 
preciate the earnestness with which he 
attacks his duties.

If Chick's fondness for giving treat- 
ments equals her fondness for receiving 
them, she'll have a busy future. She is 
firm in her purpose — we have known her 
to spend hours on a house call! Chick's 
College is Swarthmore and her loyalty 
to her alma mater is unflinching. From 
the University of Pennsylvania she re- 
ceived her Master of Arts in psychology. 
Charlesanna has taught in Delaware, 
Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and she came 
here with preparatory training immedi- 
ately appreciated by those with whom she 
came in contact. Chick's scholastic 
record is an enviable one — but there are 
those who envy her Buick even more.

"Mem is his own slur; and ihc soul that can

Commands all liahl. all inilucnce, all fate. 
Nothing to him falls early, or loo late." 


Barney is one of the well-liked mem- 
bers of the class. We know that he is 
very serious in his work and that he was 
one of the ambitious members of our 
delegation that sacrificed a great deal of 
time and sleep to take a special course 
outside of School hours. Whether he 
needed this or not is a question, but we 
think that from his recent pertinent 
questions he assimilated all that was in 
his power. We know too that he served 
a hitch in the U. S. Army and this no 
doubt accounts for his strict attention to 
his work and his respect for authority. 
We hope that ht confines his practice to 
the civilian class for we would not like 
to lose a good doctor to the "doughboys." 

Harry J. Davis, Jr. 

Heaven, firsl Uw. and this confe. 

Harry is our ideal of a well-rounded 
educational experience prior to the study 
of Osteopathy. Graduating from Spring- 
iield College, Massachussetts, where he 
starred in athletics, he has since held 
the position of Director of Physical-edu- 
cation, coach of track, basketball, and 
football at various institutions. Harry's 
interest doesn't stop with college ac- 
tivities, for he is a real sportsman. If 
portable fishing ponds were possible, he 
would be contented anywhere, and Lord 
help the poor fishes. Harry is a genuine 
friend, a real "he" man, a gentleman 
and physician of the first degree.

"Slave to no sect, who takes no private road. 

But looks through nature up to Nature's God. 
And knows where faith, law, morals, all began.

Paul is the only member of the Jewish 
fraternity in the Class of '32, and if he 
can be considered as a fair representative 
of the organization as a whole, we whole- 
heartedly become boosters for the 
"LOG's." For a finer, cleaner, broader 
minded, intelligent chap simply does not 
exist. Coming from one of the most 
clannish peoples of the earth, yet are his 
views as liberal as a Darrow and his 
friendships as Unlirtiited as an Emerson. 
His profession is not being handed to 
him on a gilt edged platter, but is being 
earned by the sweat of his brow. And 
we who know him know that he will 
not be a physician of the mediocre class.

TAXI? Right here, and you will get 
there quicker, cheaper, and safer. And 
don't get fresh wit de driver or you'll

the whole College knows his pedigree 
and it only remains for one to write his 
epitaph. For Dealy is the fiery little 
business manager of the Synapsis staff. 
And what a man he is. Where former 
managers of former years have come out 
with, a year'book months late because 
they couldn't get the material and no 
one would co-operate, Dealy GETS it 
and Dealy MAKES em co-operate, 
whether they would or not. With him 
a thing isn't "Good enough", it must be 
RIGHT and must be there on time. 
Sincere, frank-hearted, and honest as a 
dollar, never fear that he will tell you 
one thing and think another. 

Mildred Du Bell 

some power the giftie gie us 

Millie's voice has brought her much 
fame — imitation they say, is the 
sincerest flattery. From harboring a 
seemingly casual interest, Millie has come 
now to be counted among those who 
earnestly desire the "D. O." Camden will 
soon list her among its physicians — un- 
less she does decide to go to Florida as 
she claims she contemplates doing. 

Mildred has traveled considerably and 
enjoys it, most of her summers are spent 
at the shore. In spare time Mil rides 
horseback — Can't you just imagine her 
as a successful physician bringing back 
the good old dayj of the family doctor, 
a la horse? We anticipate the day we 
see Dr. Du Bell trotting along a New 
Jersey highway in answer to some 
patient's call of distress.

Tom is one of the "remote" members 
of our class if we are to judge by dis- 
tance from P. C. O. We have a certain 
amount of sympathy for members of our 
class such as Tom who are unable to get 
home over short holidays. Although we 
know that he longs to get back to the 
woods of Vermont, one would not sus- 
pect him of pining his heart away for 
maples, for Tom possesses a deep strain 
of infectious, good nature that crowds 
the blues far back into oblivion. It is 
easy to predict that Tom's future as- 
sociates will hold a great confidence in 
him for he is of the rare solid stock that 
invites scrupulous counsel and implicit

Pop is undoubtedly and undeniably, 
the most popular man of the class. And 
his popularity is not the superficial sen- 
sational type, but the badge of service 
won thru months of unthankful labor- 
ing and settling of unrests and dissents 
among we his followers. For Pop is our 
class president, and might truly be term- 
ed the Great Pacificator. Standing like 
Stonewall Jackson's wall of human flesh, 
he has stood the brunt of human unap- 
preciation and ingratitude. He has 
fought our battles with the faculty and 
given us justice. He has interceded for 
our transgressions and kept unmarred 
our fair reputation.

Dot is married — some believe it and 
some don't — however, she does have very 
decided opinions about some things. This 
year when the Juniors went into clinic 
Dot suddenly acquired a lot of self-con- 
fidence. In fact she couldn't remember 
ever being a Freshman — but we do. She 
shouts loudly for Massachusetts when- 
ever the old Bay State needs supporters. 
She and Frank came all the way from 
Cape Cod to study Osteopathy, but Dot 
gravitates back whenever there's the least 
excuse. She'll go back there to practice 
— we didn't ask but there's no need to. 
Her hobby is the movies, and that's the 
truth. In Freshman days a movie was 
the only temptation strong enough to 
make her cut a class. We'll draw no 
comparisons at this time! 

Frank, another of the boys from New 
England, is a good student and a staunch 
member of the radiator club. The amount 
of time he spends in eating, drinking, or 
sleeping is negligible when exams are on. 
He hangs to that notebook up to the 
last three seconds before the proctors 
pass the papers, and oh boy, don't those 
exams take a wallop from his pen. We 
envy his tenacity. Frank does not study 
Osteopathy alone, for he makes a sweet 
little girl happy by taking her with him 
through college as his wife. With such 
combined professional and domestic co- 
operation we can well envy Frank his 
future career.

Wally is the rosy cheeked little fellow 
from mid'Pennsylvania who is quite ac' 
tive on the Axone staff. We hardly feel 
that we can do justice to him in writing 
his biography, for since entering our Col- 
lege he has stuck rigidly to the precept 
that; fewer friends are safest and best. 
Selecting a single member of the class 
as his solid choice he stuck to her thru 
thick and thin, so that at times we, his 
classmates often wonder which is thick 
and which is thin. For aught we know 
he may be the Bard of Avon or the 
Prince of Denmark, so quiet are his as- 
sociations and rare his remarks. For 
further information see his partner.

Ed is one of these "Jolly Good Fel- 
lows." And he wouldn't need be either, 
for he is the best baseball pitcher Osteo- 
pathy ever could ask for or hope to have 
and thus quite indispensable. He is 
furthermore a big insurance man and 
Editor - in - Chief of the Osteopathic 
Digest. We feel Ed learns by the process 
of absorption or osmosis, for he has 
never been known to join the "radiator 
Club," and surely a man who has gone 
through Pennington Seminary under 
that grand old master. Dr. Harvey 
Francis Green, and attained an A.B. 
degree at Gettysburg College has re- 
markable absorptive powers. His patients 
in clinic wait in a big long line for treat- 
ment, so we feel no concern about the 
kind of a physician he will make.

"Art", the "big man" of the class 
from the suburbs of New York City, 
does not rest on the laurels of his 
physical greatness. Determined to be 
the best Osteopath in his state, he probes 
and investigates, quizzes and interpolates, 
until, to his profs he becomes an enigma 
and to his patients a man of wisdom. 
With Art, Osteopathy is the greatest 
science, but he does not permit it to 
confine his intellect. He conducted re- 
search in the Rockerfeller Research 
Laboratory in 1928, and since entering 
the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy, 
his interest in chemistry has won for 
him a membership in a prominent 
chemical society. 

Harry E. Friberg 

Harry is one of the boys from Chicago 
and if you ask him, he certainly can 
give you the dope on this Osteopathy 
stuff. Rudy Vallee may be a smooth 
singer but he has nothing on Harry in 
the way of smooth charm for women. 
The girls of the class vie with each other 
for first place, but Harry is impartial, 
giving equal attention to all. Back in 
Somerville, Massachussetts, we under- 
stand, he was also somewhat of an 
athlete as well as a musician. Our Col- 
lege certainly feels complimented in his 
making it his choice for the last two 
years, and we are certain he will con- 
tinue to make hosts of friends through- 
out his most assuredly successful pro- 
fessional career as easily as he has among 
the Class of '32.

breath of spring air wafted your way. 
Her frankness is her sincerity and her 
every possession yours for the asking. 
Radcliffe gave her the Bachelor of Arts 
degree in 1928. Claire's major work was 
in Chemistry — but that is a secret. An' 
other secret is that she was graduated 
from the Falton Praisoforte School in 
Boston. You've probably guessed Boston 
is Claire's home. On the surface, it ap' 
pears incompatible that a student doctor 
could and would take a southern trip in 
the middle of a second semester — Yet, 
you know Claire and so you know it is 
perfectly and properly done.

but get acquainted with him in his studio 
where he talks like a philosopher over a 
cigarette and an empty bottle of gin, 
and you will find that he has a heart 
of gold. He does not wish to appear to 
study, yet one who starts with the Class 
of '32 and finds himself with it at the 
end of three years is not an idle student. 
Greg is a wizard on the piano. He 
doesn't need an instructor, never did; 
doesn't even need a piece of music. All 
he requires is that someone whistle the 
melody if he never heard it before, and 
he will rattle it off with all the thrills 
and trills of an accomplished musician.

specializes in wise cracks, most of \which 
are given in an undertone in class, loud 
enough for his fellowmen to hear, but 
not audible to those for whom intended, 
which if they were, would make them 
unwise cracks if the victim happens to 
be on the platform. A fiery man is Bill, 
and a sportsman. At cups or at cards, 
not to speak of dances, he can be counted 
on to hold his own and to accept defeat 
with the same equanimity that he accepts

We defy anyone to win an argument 
from Hersh once he starts with logical 
ground to work on. His ability to ex- 
press himself in proving his points is one 
that we all envy and such an ability is 
only gained by establishing the worth 
while contacts of which he can boast. 
Hersh arose from the mob of common 
bachelors last year and assumed the duti- 
ful seat of husband, and recently proud 
father. We are pleased to discover that 
in spite of additional responsibilities he 
still maintains an eagerness to retain his 
intimate friends. We can think of no 
one whose friendship has grown so 
rapidly nor whose view-points have ex- 
panded so broadly in a scant three years 
of new associations.

HofF is a quiet, reserved, unassuming 
fellow, who it is rather difficult to 
describe more thoroughly than does the 
above lines by Pope. In the class you 
would never know more about him than 
"just another student," who laboriously 
takes notes, comes to classes on time, and 
leaves at dismissal. However, from his 
sister at home we learned that he has 
had a great struggle to study Osteopathy, 
that he earned and is earning every cent 
of his educational training, and that he 
was so ambitious in his Freshman year 
as to practice his technique on the family 
poodle, curing it of a long standing case 
of rhinitis. We voice no doubts for the 
future success of such a man.

Beth is truly Philadelphian — Philadel-

in smiling in the morning and goes home 
smiling at night — a disposition enviable 
in this day and place. What is more 
she seems to thoroughly enjoy every 
minute of her time spent here. 

Elizabeth writes poetry now and then 
— much of it has appeared in P. C. O. 
publications. This year she was awarded 
a key for work on the Axone staff, Beth 
also lists among her hobbies music and 
art — from them she seems to derive 
miuch pleasure. In addition to the grave 
responsibility of occupying a seat near 
the front of the classroom, Beth has this 
year been secretary of the class records.

Bob is one of these fellows who sur- 
prises us by showing hidden ability at 
a time when it is most needed. Bob has 
been given many distasteful duties about 
school, but he always comes up smiling 
asking for something more to do. He en- 
joys doing those jobs that mean so much 
and go so far to render a big under- 
taidng complete. His work on the Axone 
Staff was of such a nature that he was 
chosen without hesitancy for a position 
on the Synapsis Staff as a Literary 
Editor, and the results of his diligent ef- 
forts may be found under the heading 
of Organizations. Work of this kind 
entails many interviews and altercations 
among fraternities and sororities so that 
it requires a man of Bob's easiness of 
nature to compile such writings in a 
manner pleasing to all. 

Pop's greatest claim to fame is his 
exhaustive study of those things pertain- 
ing to the greatest of all sciences — nerv- 
ous anatomy, and diseases of the nervous 
system. He surely keeps our profs on 
the jump with his pointed inquiries. 
Last summer, working as a traffic cop 
up in Massachussetts he kept the erring 
motorist on the jump. And there is no 
doubt in our minds that when he gets 
out in practice he will keep us all on 
the jump to try to emulate his income. 
His accomplishments have been almost 
unbelievable. Going to college all day, 
working in an American Store all eve- 
ning and all day Saturdays, taking care 
of his splendid Nev^ England wife, and 
being one of the best students in the 
Class besides, are attainments of which 
he could, but never does, boast.

will be making laws if not history, if a 
love for learning has anything to do with 
the future greatness of a man. For 
seldom is Harry seen without his nose 
in a book, and the questions he pops to 
his profs often go over our heads. We 
are sure the profession in Harrisburg is 
eagerly awaiting his return to their midst, 
for he will not only take with him his 
scholarship, but a sweet and demure 
Mrs. Leonard whom we have already 
come to know and love.

In School and out he has a string of 
friends who have all they can do to 
keep from imposing on his everlasting 
good-nature and willingness. If straight- 
forwardness of purpose and undivided 
concentration of effort are two qualities 
that determine a professional success, 
we can predict a brilliant future for Bud,

Like SO many other students in this 
College, Doug has been in restraint sini' 
ply because the school does not embrace 
enough activities to suit his abilities, or 
does he bone the hours of recreation 

We envy Dougs easiness of manner 
and of self-possession, in fact he is to 
be classed as "smooth." One pictures 
him in post-college life as mingling with 
what is termed the better class and of 
handling successfully a practice who 
drive up to his porte cochere in highly 
polished limousines. Lest we do not do 
justice to Dougs accomplishments, we 
only ask you to step into the classroom

and well chosen. For John Galsworthy 
never held an ace with Ed. His charm-

his regal command of the king's own

Ken comes from Oil City, Pennsyl-

looking cigars, play poker with inverted 
diamond rings, and sleep with their boots 
on. He studied in Grove City College 
and came to us a grave and serious man. 
His friends are few, not from necessity, 
but from choice, for he chooses seldom, 
but well. Knowing his attributes we feel 
we can predict for Ken a brilliant future, 
for his air of gravity, his spirit of 
solemnity, his habits of sobriety, and his 
serious sanctity will surely classify him 
as a profound physician, with a mind 
which works harder than his tongue and 
a knov.'ledge born of observation. From 
recent observation between classes we 
find among us a sportsman of unquench' 
able spirit.

and went a year to the Boston School

supplemented her training here by a 
year at Lake Erie College, Ohio. We 
cannot say too much of this girl's 
athletic ability — for example, she was a 
member of the varsity hockey team 
which played the All-American team last 

Socially and professionally, Karleen

through a hard four years of college 
draws nothing but commendation. We 
feel that Earle could add much to our 
athletic standing, for it is supervision of 
work of this kind that opened the way 
for him to study Osteopathy. Due to his 
busy outside life, those of us who are 
able judge of human character by short 
acquaintance, feel it worth our while to 
enjoy his friendship and we can only 
predict a just reward for one who has 
striven so conscientiously to attain his

Although "Carm" comes from way up 
North in Canada. Philadelphia as- 
sociates thawed him out and found a 
warm heart beneath his crust of ice and 
snow. He is one of these people who 
is always busy, but Carm is wise in those 
things with which he chooses to busy 
himself for he knows hospital routine 
from beginning to end, having been night 
superintendent of the Pennsylvania Hos- 
pital and at present assisting in the De- 
partment of Roentgenology in our own 
hospital. With all his "ado about every- 
thing" "Carm" has had the time to make 
hosts of friends inside and outside of his 
direct fraternal connections. 

Bud comes from a family of Osteo- 
paths, and whether it can be attributed 
to heridity or no, those who know him 
must admit that he is one of the most 
level-headed men in the class. To those 
who know him least, he may sometimes 
appear contradictive and argumentative, 
but to him, a thing that isn't logical 
simply has no place in his ratiocinate. 
Never advance to him a theory or an 
argument unless it has a scientific back- 
ing, for even Mendel couldn't put one 
over on him. His professional bearing 
and diplomatic procedure will surely win 
for him a classical future.

Who is there among us who has never 
envied Barb her absolute poise, her calm 
and unassuming nature? Surely these 
characteristics are fundamental among 
the prequisites of a physician. 

Barb isolated herself for two years 
after high school in the little town of 
Norton, Massachusetts, attending 
Wheaton College. She is more or less 
of an athletic soul and has never been 
known to refuse a game of tennis or a 
hike. Music holds a place in her life — 
and we have been told Barb has talent of 
her own. This young woman would be 
a first rate traveling companion, for she 
has relatives in any given place. 

Rig is, without a dissenting voice, the 
best student in the class. Not only has 
he the best didactic comprehension of 
his subject, but he is the most practical 
physician. Going thru life with a handi- 
cap which would have left the average 
man lying by the wayside long ago, he 
still continues to perform wonders. A 
student of George Washington Uni- 
versity, and a Doctor of Naturopathy, 
Rig had a splendid groundwork for .the 
study of Osteopathy. His beloved avoca' 
tions are literature and debatmg. A 
quiet unassuming manner, a conversa- 
tion that bespeaks a philosopher, one is 
made to feel, by his acquaintance, that 
still waters run deep and true greatness 
IS not ostentatious.

Richie fills a place in our class that 
would seem empty without him. He is 
right at hand with a witty come-back 
and is the collegiate representative of the 
gay-spirited members of P. C. O. Al- 
though Richie has not been foremost in 
the activities of the College we under- 
stand that he uses his time to good ad- 
vantage for whoever heard of him taking 
re-exams? Perhaps you are wiser, Richie 
for not allowing outside interests to en- 
croach upon your most purposeful aim, 
for few of us can undertake many enter- 
prises and be successful in all. Anytime 
that you feel down hearted just stop and 
pass the time of day with Richie and 
he'll set you right again. 

George comes from that hardy old 
New England stock which made that 
land what she is today. His home stands 
in the Gateway of the North and in 
his veins pulsates blood of a hardy race 
of men. George is an Osteopath to the 
core. His big ambition is to be a first 
class obstetrician, and from the number 
of cases he has to his credit already it 
certainly looks as if he is going to be 
one. Back home he was the community 
veterenarian, but he says delivering a 
woman is so much more aesthetic than 
delivering a cow. His reputation with 
his Ford as "The Wild Man from 
Borneo," makes us believe he will arrive 
at any destination he sets as his goal.

"Lay this into your breast! 

Old friends, like old swor, 
Still are trusted best." 

Charlie's attributes are such as to 
place him in that enviable . category of 
"Golden Friendship." A ruddy grin, 
a pleasant disposition, and a willingness 
to give you the shirt off his back, makes 
him the class friend. Yet his powerful 
handclasp and the flash of his eyes when 
his ire is aroused, substantiates his hail- 
ing from the wilds of Maine where men 
are bold and women make love. Charlie 
was a champion in Track back in Heb- 
ron Academy and in Bates College but 
his scholastic ability in P. C. O. indi- 
cates that he cultivates the mind as well 
as the body. His class record is excellent, 
his contact with his fellow students im- 
peachable, and his impression as a phys- 
ician one that gains his patients' pro- 
found respect.

High tribute must be paid to a student 
who can boast of a scholastic average 
such as Eric's. Much more than this, 
however, are other admirable qualities 
that do not escape attention, which we 
feel that Eric has developed as well as 
possessed since we have know him. Al- 
ways cheerful and willing to perform 
any duties asked of him, along with a 
naturally sunny disposition, wins him 
popularity that is of a lasting quality. 
Those of us who really know him have 
often discovered him reading material 
that is generally though*- to be over the 
heads of more mature men. But these 
things are mere fiction to "Barnacle Bill", 
and we often wonder how he finds time 
for such perusing, along with the 
voluminous assignments he memorizes.

versity of Michigan and holding a B. S. 
degree from the Kirksville College. We 
of Philadelphia feel honored indeed to 
have him with us, for his qualities do not 
stop with erudition. His approach is 
pleasant, his manner charming, and his 
professional bearing such as to be a credit 
to his fellowmen. Few of us can boast 
of a disposition of such evenness or a 
character of such enduring quality. May 
we try to parallel his ideals!

verse could not have been applied to 
"The Philosopher" in his Freshman year 
at P. C. O. For he was then the sum- 
total of despair of all those with whom 
he tried to argue. In dissection room or 
in assembly, in classroom or ampitheater, 
he tried to prove that what is, isn't, and 
what isn't, might be. As one of his 
fraternity brothers expressed him, "Once 
he makes up his mind, you might as well 
talk to a stone wall." But a few years 
of mingling with a professional brother- 
hood has done worlds for Dave. While 
he yet delves deeply into all of those 
things related to the human family, his 
spirit is tempered with a sense of equili- 
brium, and his life with a sense of poise.

Bob goes through Osteopathy with a 
light heart. We feel sure that if he can 
convey to his patients the cheerfulness 
and contented happiness he himself en- 
joys he will most surely make a great 
physician. At the poker table Bob is a 
student of human nature, a graceful 
loser and a modest winner. While some 
may have a misconception of his ability 
and his sincerity, we who know him best 
love him best, and are confident that 
beneath his gay surface lies a depth of 
soul unfathomed. And our fervent hope 
is that he may carry with him that 
joviality when the cares of a heavy prac' 
tice encrouch on his even disposition.

sigh to those who love : 
o those who hate; 
sky's above me, 
for every fate. 

Helen had not been with us long be- 
fore someone affectionately dubbed her 
"Babe" — and this name has survived all. 
Babe's keen thinking is an inspiration 
to those who know her well and we can 
truly say she is thoroughly sincere in this 
business of becoming a doctor. 

Helen came to us from Spring Valley, 
N. Y. High School where she was active 
in every phase of extra-curricula life. 
Among her past laurels are editor of the 
school magazine and year book and a 
member of the basketball and track 

This doctor's hobby is bridge and she 
plays as a master. Well, what better 
means of a quiet evening at home?

And where engendered and of what humour: 
He nas a rerrey parfii,hl practisour." 


"Stiney" comes from the city where 
they make Pennsylvania's laws; back 
where men are men, and legislators take 
Osteopathic treatment after an all-night 
session. He is a great student, knows all 
the pictures in every book by heart, and 
has his obstetrical bag completely out- 
fitted with a stethoscope and a pair of 
forceps. Stiney's training has been a rigid 
one, for before entering Osteopathy he 
ran Track two years, conducted a band, 
and was on the Quartermaster Staff of 
Camp Tobyhanna and Camp Mt. Gretna 
two years. These, and other indications 
of ability, lead us to believe he will make 
a splendid soldier in the ranks of Osteo- 
pathy — perhaps a general.

"No longer let mc shun my part 
Amid the busy scenes of life. 
But with a warm and generous heart 

Stip is one of the best examples of 
what a few years of daily mingling with 
professional associates will do for a man. 
Coming to us from a small town in 
Connecticut with a boyish glee that knew 
no end of boasting how much more "my 
Dad knows than your Dad," he has been 
cufFed and tumbled, ruffled and kicked, 
until the diamond of his character has 
begun to lose its roughness and the 
lustre shine forth. And we feel sure 
that lustre will cast abroad a beam which 
shall enlighten the profession to its ut- 
most corners and awaken in us a warm 
glow of admiration for Stip, our class- 



With grace to win, with heart to hold, 
^ With shining gifts that took all eyes." 


Tod is a Philadelphia man and a 
genuine credit to the Quaker City. 
Polished, refined, and always well dressed 
he came to us with a gayity and a light- 
ness of spirit carried over from high 
school days. But a year in Osteopathy 
found him adopting himself to the seri- 
ousness of the situation. A scholar too, 
is Tod and a gentleman of the first de- 
gree. His disposition sunny, his habits 
immaculate, and his manner pleasant, it 
affords us real delight to write his bio- 
graphy in these few lines, for we do not 
need to seek for works to pad it, not at- 
tempt to vainly hide his shortcomings.

When in doubt as to how to spend 
your sabbatical year, consult Marion. She 
has traveled far and wide, and if travel 
educates one, Marion certainly be con- 
sidered among the best. We envy any- 
one who courageously lists "travel" 
among her hobbies. Athletics holds a 
definite place in her scheme of life — 
especially basketball. She played for the 
Lankenau School before she came here. 

"Dr. van Ronk" is a name already rec- 
ognized in the profession and Marion 
will do her best to increase its respect — 
of that we are very sure.

Ray, another Chicago man, comes 
originally from the New England town 
where the Church Fathers and the 
Magistrates burned the witches, A man 
of silent dignity, his chief attraction 
seems to center in his haughty poise, his 
indefatigable bearing, and his quiet sense 
of humor. A member of the trio, 
"Watts, Leavitt, and Robinson," his 
scholastic ability is of like high caliber 
with the other two members. We are 
indebted to Ray for his assistance in 
organi2;ing a humor section in this book 
and we can commend him upon having 
a keen insight into human nature for 
being able to portray some of the stu' 
dents with which he has held such a 
short acquaintance.

Whitey is another man that does a 
great deal of work without making 
much ado about it. He surely seems to 
get a great deal done, for he pays his 
way through Osteopathy by holding a 
position as Physical Director in the 
Wilmington Y. M. C. A., and in addi- 
tion to this, finds time to make a women 
happy, for in his Sophomore year he left 
the bachelor crew and became a useful 
citizen. A very good student, a man of 
high ideals, and a jolly good fellow is 
Whitey. If ever you want to arrange 
your schedule of daily living so as to 
get about four times as much work done 
as you thought was ever possible, con- 
sult this able gentleman.

Spoke in her cheeks, and so distinctly wrought. 

That one might almost say her body thought. 


Because of lack of space it is impos- 
sible to express our entire appreciation 
of one of the hardest and most sincere 
workers in the College. Dot gives us 
great cause to wonder when we consider 
the responsible positions she has so suc- 
cessfully held during a scant three years 
of association with P. C. O., besides 
maintaining an enviable scholastic record. 
Taking over the editorship of the Axone 
Dot produced a quarterly publication 
that had never before been paralled, and 
for which we could scarcely wait to ap- 
pear as each quarter rolled around. We 
regret that through unforseen circum- 
stances she had to forego the editing of 
this Synapsis. Lest you gather that Dot's 
ability lies solely in editing just follow 
her around for a seven-day week and 
observe her associations. Always cheer-

"O man of silent mood, 

A stranger among strangers thzn, 

HoTf art thou since renouned the Great, the Good, 

Familiar as the day in homes of men!" 


The profound, the inexplicable "Bob". 
Another one of these learned gentlemen 
from the Chicago College. He rarely 
speaks, but when he does, he speaks as 
one with authority. We cannot say the 
above verse describes him as accurately 
as it should, for we might change the 
last line to read, "Familiar as the day in 
clinic dens," for he certainly seems to 
be a physician in much demand as he 
bobs in and out of the long line of little 
doors downstairs, clad in formal white 
gown and a serious look that would do 
justice to a magistrate. There must have 
been left an unreplacable vacancy when 
Bob left Chicago for we could never 
willingly permit him to make another 
change, we feel his presence is an addi- 
tion to the intelligentsia of the Class. 


William B. Wilson 


Bill is the portly, well nourished 
gentleman from over back of Wall 
Street. Somehow or other we just 
couldn't get along without Bill, with his 
jolly sense of humor and unquenchable 
good nature. Bill says, in the olden days 
it used to be that a fella would take a 
coupla of ten cent cigars out of his vest 
pocket and lay them on the mantle be- 
fore sitting down on the sofa with his 
girl, but nowadays the girl reaches for 
a Lucky and doesn't give a damn whether 
you're sweet or not. Bill's qualifications 
do not stop with his disposition and his 
sense of humor, for he is an Osteopath 
to the core. We know his patients will 
imbibe much of his joviality and receive 
a stimulation of the sphenopalatine 
ganglion psychcially if he misses the 
spot physically.

Junior History 


Vice-President Eugene Casey 

Secretary Beth Keitsch 

Treasurer Frank A. 

Back in the fall of '28, a group of enthusiastic truth seekers assembled at the old 
Osteopathic home at 18th and Spring Garden Streets, to delve into the profundities 
and morals of that grand science. Osteopathy. Our ranks were filled by a cosmopolitan 
aggregation, having representatives from twelve states, Canada, England, Ireland and 
France. Moreover previous college training had prepared more than forty per cent, of 
our group for our future profession, which perhaps accounts for the commendatory 
opinions of the faculty as to our ability surpassing that of heretofore enrollments. So 
immediately our standards were established by such just complimentation and hence 
our aim out of necessity had to be lofty. 

The onset of organization was rapid. Our class officers were elected early and 
their duties efficiently carried out. With such capable leaders, careful planning of our 
dance committee and splendid class co-operation we were able to entertain our superiors 
most delightfully and successfully at the Rittenhouse Hotel. Aside from this social 
function our talent was employed in the entertainments supplied by the Neurone Soci' 
ety to further mutual good-will toward our class-mates and upperclassmen. Few of us 
can forget the unevenness of that dance floor in our classroom, where all our school 
dances too place! 

Fraternities and sororities appeared in the horizon of our attention early, affording 
many of us enjoyable "rushes". Many of us are at present members of such organiza- 
tions for the purpose of better advancing the field of our chosen profession. 

Academically, our attention was constantly focused upon the necessity of learning 
the bare fundamentals of our science that we prepare ourselves properly to comprehend 
the scope of future practical work, fiowever, such drudgery was soon to pay dividends 
for our labors, so on and on we plugged with our high aim constantly in view, always 
reaping knowledge for future use. Thus, an otherwise uneventful year passed on into 
the Sophomorism. 

Our Sophomore year was in reality a continuation of the previous year insofar 
as scholastic responsibilities were concerned, as we were still in the throes of subjects 
relating to fundamentals of an even more complicated nature. However, in spite of 
such basic, comparatively dull engagement we were able to get an insight into wnat our 
persistent labors were to harvest. 

Reorganization brought a new group of officers to continue the work of those 
retiring. Our members were slightly reduced by a few who found it impossible to 
continue with us. The event of this year that was outstanding in our minds as well as 
everyone interested in the advancement of Osteopathy, was the occupancy of our new 
college and hospital, at 48th and Spruce Streets. This, indeed was an inspiration to us 
because of the facilities afforded and added to our already inspired desire to become 
proficient, as well as being proud of our Alma Mater. We were rightfully proud be- 

cause our share of the expense in construction of the new edifice was wiUingly borne 
by our members as evidenced by the pledges gathered from our midst. The remainder 
of our Sophomore year shpped by quietly while we were enjoying our new quarters. 

At the conception of our Junior year we were pleasingly surprised to find and 
glad to welcome six new members to our ranks from the Chicago College of Osteopathy. 
At election we unanimously retained John (Pop) Eimerbrink as our Class President. 
Because of his well qualified abilities to negotiate such an ofiice to the approval of all. 
We feel that we owe much to "Pop" for what he has contributed to our Class in the 
way of leadership and counsel, not to mention his scholastic abilities, the offices of 
Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer were bestowed upon Eugene Casey, Beth 
Keitsch and Frank Beidler respectively. 

Early in the fall we followed in the footsteps of the Seniors by sponsoring a 
Benefit Dance, the proceeds being turned over to the Campaign Fund. Just before the 
Christmas holidays some of the hidden talent of the Class was whisked into the limelight 
when stunts given by the diflFerent Classes were exhibited in the College auditorium 
under direction of Dr. Hessdorfer. 

Field trips in Hygiene throughout our first semester also called our attention to 
certain matters of health and sanitation as carried out m Philadelphia, and we learned 
many of the schemes whereby the public is protected from the invasion of certain 
dangerous little creatures. Without exception our trip to the Mulford Laboratories was 
the most illuminating of these, while at best, we can't say we would be overanxious to 
review the trip to the Sewage Disposal Plant. 

Our great adventure now is being student physicians in the clinic where we are 
privileged to apply our knowledge of Osteopathy and watch its marvelous workings. 
But for those tedious hours back in the years of seemingly endless toil little could we 
do to guard our reputation. It almost seems that we are off on the right foot 
inasmuch as patients swarm to the clinic beyond capacity. May we alleviate such a 
condition by speeding up the discharge list to a record point. We fancy there are 
hidden possibilities.

"Now, let me see . . . I've got to find out something about this fellow Scott. I 
wonder if he really deserves to pass my course. It's so important. I believe Til call 
Dr. Dressier. He ought to know Mr. Scott. He seems to be quite congenial with the 
students. Miss Rogers, please get me Dr. Dressier on the phone." 

"Oh, hello. Hello, Dr. Dressier. I hope Fm not intruding on your time. I only 
want a minute. . . . I've been looking over my reports and I can't quite convince 
myself that Mr. Scott should pass this course. He has a very good paper here, but I've 
concluded that marks don't mean everything, but that effort should count for some- 
thing. Now for instance, Mr. McDougall, I had to ask him to sit in the front row to 
hold his attention. Now, Dr. Dressier, my idea of a real student is Mr. Noeling. He 
is so attentive, and it does my heart good to hear his answers, for I feel that he has 
an excellent, analytic mind and has the power of true correlation. But, I surely did 
have my troubles, with Miss Alleman and Mr. Adams, and Miss Bowden and Mr. 
Brown. They seemed to vie with each other as to who could whisper the loudest and 
the longest, and from all I hear you have encountered the same situation. I had some 
difficulty in getting the attention of the class, especially when Mr. Leedy, Mr. Tom 
Nicholl, Mr. Ladd, and Mr. Hilborn were rendering one of their numbers — but 
really Dr. Dressier, don't you think those dear boys should have their voices trained?" 

"But at that they sound better than they did last year when they had the piano 
down in the old building and couldn't hit the key at the beginning to start them off. 
And doctor, don't you think Miss Farrand is doing well this year considering the 
number of times she slept through Anatomy last year? You know, I always felt con- 
fident when I went in to teach the Freshman class last year, because I knew if anything 
happened to me Black was there as my advisor, or substitute, if necessary." 

"Yes, yes Dr. Dressier. I've noticed how attentive Mr. Black was in my class, — 
and so quiet, I often wondered if he were asleep. And there's a dear boy in the 
Sophomore class, who has a very high type mind as I have diagnosed from his dreams, 
Mr. Davis, who was so interested in the work that he dearly loved to investigate the 
writings of other authors who elaborated more on the nervous mechanism that Mr.

"By the way, Mr. Paul Miller was in my office this afternoon and he has finally 
philosophically accepted the inevitable and concludes that Osteopathy surpasses carbon 
arc lamps. And doctor, do you suppose a carbon arc lamp would strengthen Mr. 

Toomey's teeth? He seems to lose them as frequently as I do my scarfs, and poor Mr. 
Willoughby! It just seems too bad that the Sophomores have so much fun at the 
expense of his derby."

"Oh just a minute, doctor. A patient has just come in. Perhaps Fd better hang

In Order of Establishment 


This body of students is composed of a representative of 
each of the fraternities and sororities of the College. Its 
purpose is to deal with the problems of interest to the or- 
ganization and to pass upon rules governing rushing and 
pledging throughout the year. The Council is assisted by 
a Faculty governing board so that the academic standing of 
the prospective members of the organization may be taken 
into consideration before membership is permitted.

"The Axone" is the official voice of the student-body and expresses the students' 
opinions and formulated ideas on collegiate activities and interests. Appearing at about 
two month intervals throughout the school year, it brings before the student-body 
scientific thought, pertinent editorials, short stories, humor and verse. 

This year "The Axone" completes its first decade of existence and looks with 
pride on its growth from a leaflet to a magazine befitting the institution it represents.

^A(eo Senior Honorary Society 

The Neo Senior Society was founded at the Philadelphia 
College of Osteopathy in 1924, by ten members of the Class 
of '25. The purpose of this Society is to promote student 
activities, interest in athletics, and a spirit of comaraderie 
between the students and the profession at large. The mem- 
bers are elected on the basis of extra curricular endeavor and 
personal concern in the active phases of student life. 

Sigma lAlpha Omicron 

In 1924 a non-secret, honorary fraternity was established whose purpose has always 
been to promote academic interest and elevate the quality of scholastic attainment 
among the Osteopathic student-body.

£. Q. 'Drew Obstetrical Society 

The E. G. Drew Obstetrical Society Vv-as founded in 1925, to give the student- 
body an opportunity to gain an added knowledge in the art of Obstetrics and by so 
doing to foster an increased interest in this branch of the medical art. The Society was 
named in honor of Dr. E. G. Drew, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

Monthly meetings of the Society are held, at which time, Obstetrical treatises, 
prepared by members, are read to the Society for the purpose of dissemination of facts 
relative to the art. These papers are supplemented by valuable and interesting talks 
by outside lecturer?. 

The roll call is composed of the names of those Seniors who have qualified by 
submitting theses on Obstetrical work and have been elected during the second semester 
of the Junior year on a competitive basis. Undergraduates are cordially invited to at- 
tend the monthly open meetings.

At a meeting of several members of the Class of '30, held May 7, 1928, the 
Physiological Chemical Society was formed to do original research to advance, in any 
way possible, the relationship of Physiological Chemistry to the Osteopathic Principles. 

The basis of election to the Society is an average of at least ninety during the 
Freshman and Sophomore years in Chemistry and in addition a personal record of 
interest in research in the Chemical field which is acceptable to the Society. 

Professors Erb and Stoertz have shown a great interest in the work carried out 
by the different members and their aid has been of great value in the diiferent problems 
that have arisen. 

In order to foster a greater interest in our work, and to give the members of the 
lower classes who are interested in Chemical research an opportunity to become more 
closely associated with us, we have voted to hold monthly meetings which will be open 
to anyone interested in our work. In addition the Society will elect, as associate mem- 
bers, certain of the lower classmen whose work is of such quality as to be acceptable 
to the Society.

Qardio-'XJascular Society 

February the 2Sth, the finishing touches were appUed to the construction of a 
Cardio- Vascular Society. Many problems were met and overcome. Many more shall 
have to be met as they arise. The charter was drawn up and a plan of action mapped 
out. A unique feature of the organisation is, that it only has one officer, the treasurer, 
who will transact all business for the Society. 

The object of the Society is not only to stimulate the interest of the student-body 
in the subject under consideration, but to give to members an intensive study of clinical 
subject matter in general. In this respect we are indeed fortunate to have the clinical 
advisory board to consist of Drs. Fischer, Lloyd, and Lutz,, these being the three honor- 
ary members of the Society. 

It is a prime prerequisite that all members of the Society do extensive examining 
and in fact, many have had rather intensive practice in these fields already. 

The applicant in being judged for membership must submit a thesis, the originality 
of which bears more weight than does verbosity. 

The membership must of necessity be limited to six, less if need be. Each member 
must take an active part in the clinical examination, thereby requiring the group to 
be a small one. 

Before receiving the Key of the Society, each member is presented with a clinical 
case on which he will be expected to elicit physical signs, give a diagnosis and dif- 
ferential diagnosis, prognosis and suggestions as the most suitable treatment. A rea- 
sonable standard of correctness of same is desired. 

Present members are: LeRoy Lovelidge, Jr., James C. Luker, Alfonso Merola, 
George L. Miller and Paul Young.

The J. Francis Smith Neurological Society was formed near the close of the present 
school year by the Class of '32. The purpose of this Society is to stimulate interest 
and foster research in the various phases of neurology in its relation to the Osteopathic 

The membership will be limited to twelve students who are to be chosen each year 
from the Junior Class on the basis of their interest in the work and a submitted thesis. 

j(^theran Student Association 

Lutheran Student Work was begun in Philadelphia in 1909, by Dr. Frank M. 
Miter, then director of Public Safety under Mayor Blankenburg. His interest was 
centered at the University of Pennsylvania. The Lutheran Students of Philadelphia 
were brought together once a year at a dinner sponsored by the leaders at the U. of P. 
This was carried on until nine years ago when Rev. Robert H. Gearhart, Jr., became 
Lutheran Student Pastor. Thru his efforts, meetings held at stated times each month 
took the place of the annual dinner. When this proceedure was under way at Penn- 
sylvania, he made an attempt to have a similar group at Temple. He was moderately 
successful, but it was more than five years until the Lutheran Students were definitely 
organized there. 

Drexel was the next school in which Rev. Gearhart established a student group. 
Hahnemann has an inactive interest in the association. The last member to join in 
Philadelphia was our own college, P. C. O. Last year Rev. Gearhart started a group 
here, and luncheon meetings were held alternate Thursdays. About that time a 
Lutheran Student Council was formed. Two representatives from each group were 
chosen to make up the Council. The chairman was elected from Temple and the 
secretary from Osteopathy. Thru plans correlated by the council, several city wide 
social functions and church services have been given for the combined interest of all 
the Lutheran Students in Philadelphia. 

Though we were delayed in resuming our meetings this year the interest and 
enthusiasm has been most encouraging, and we look forward to the continuance of the 
enjoyable luncheon meetings next year.

3^s(ewman Qlub 

The first Newman Club was founded in 1893 at the University of Pennsylvania, 
in honor of Cardinal Newman. At the present time there are more than two hundred 
clubs in the various universities and colleges in the United States and Canada. The 
purpose of this organization is to band the students of the Catholic faith together in 
an endeavor to further the ideals of Catholicism, to encourage scholastic achievement 
in the student-body, to bring about good fellowship and understanding between the 
students of the Catholic Faith and those of other beliefs, and to provide, in a measure, 
a means of social activity for the members.

U\(ejJO York Osteopathic Society 

The New York Junior Osteopathic Society was founded for the purpose of 
bringing those students of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy into closer union in 
order to work in co-operation on legislative matters which would further the interests 
of those planning on practicing in New York State. 

Meetings are held at various intervals to maintain good fellowship and further 
the interests of Osteopathy.

Rhode Island or planning to practice in that State. Its purpose is to work in cO' 
ordination for improvement in legislation as regards the practice of Osteopathy in that 
State and also thru social activities to knit in a closer union, the members of the various 
classes from Rhode Island.

Junior 'Prom Qommittee 

The most outstanding social event of the year at P. C. O. is the Junior Prom. It 
is given annually by the Juniors in honor of the graduating class. 

The Committee is composed of the president of the class, a representative of each 
Fraternity and Sorority in the College and also a non-fraternity representative. 

This year an unusually successful dance was held at the Hotel Pennsylvania. 
Great credit is due the Committee in its eiforts to make the Prom of 1931, the best ever.

p. C. O. closed its basketball season in Camden, being 
nosed out by the Camden City College in the last few minutes 
of play. The team did not bring home all the victories we 
could have wished for, but it was in there, playing the game 
all the time. Most of the games, in which we were on the 
small end of the score, were lost by one or two points. 

The prospects for a successful season during 1931-32, 
are particularly bright with a large squad of eligibles that 
are coming up in the Freshmen Class. Warner and Ellis are 
the only two regulars lost to the team by graduation. 



The cleanest and neatest game of the season was played 
at Juniata College. In this game the team functioned like a 
machine displaying more team work than in any other game 
of the season with the scoring honors well divided. The out- 
standing work of the guards, Davis and Ellis held the fast 
scoring combination of Andrews and Given down to such 
an extent that one basket gave the necessary margin for vic- 
tory. The whole play was characterized by fast cutting of 
the forv;ards, Christensen and Toomey and their ability to 
upset the Juniata defense so that the guards were able to 
work up the floor and score. 

Purse and Beidler alternating at center were without 
scoring honors, but were the pivots for the offense and broke 
up many of the opponent's plays. Warner ably replaced 
Davis at guard when the latter left the game on fouls. 

Although we were almost snow-bound and had some dif- 
ficulty in driving home, this was the most enjoyable trip of 
the season.

The prospects for this sport this year are far above 
those of any preceding year. For the first time in its history, 
P. C. O. has a home field, close enough so that the 
candidates will have a chance to practice vifithout being 
hampered. It will also be possible to schedule home games 
which will give the student-body a chance to see its team in 
action. This will tend to stimulate more interest in this 
truly American sport as well as an incentive to spur the team 
on to more worthy efforts for dear old P. C. O. 

There is more interest evidenced this year as seen by 
the large number of applicants for the team. Captain Parker 
is the only "regular" lost to the team by graduation. This 
leaves a hole in the keystone combination that must be filled. 

The mainstay of the pitching staff will again be Ferren, 
the Gettysburg College Alumnus who occupies the mound 
credibly. "Red" Ellis, the slugging catcher will again be 
holding up the former's curves and fast ones. There are a 
number of battery candidates from the lower classes trying 
to make the grade as batten.' men. 

With the exception of second base, the infield will be in- 
tact again this year with the flash> Captain Warner holding 
down the hot corner in his inimitable style. Brown, the clever 
shortstop, will ably guard that position of the infield, Beidler 
and Miller fighting it for possession of the initial sack. The 
latter can also serve them if called upon. 

In the outfield such dependable fielders as Hartzell, 
Toomey, E. Garland, L. Garland and Willoughby will en- 
deavor to hold their places. These men will all have to show 
their best to retain their positions against the onslaught of 
some of the real grave prospects that are trying out this year.

A call was issued on March 1 1 , for track candidates and great interest was shown, 
particularly by the Freshmen Class. Dr. Secor outlined plans for the coming season and 
suggested that an attempt be made to arrange a series of dual meets with Drexel, 
Haverford, Swarthmore and West Chester Normal. With about eight or ten candidates 
out for the quarter-mile the outlook for winning the City College Championship in the 
Penn Relays is exceedingly bright. 

Drexel Field at 46th and Haverford Avenue, will be used for practice and it is 
hoped that due to the interest shown we shall be able within the next year or two to 
have a complete team, satisfactorily equipped, to engage in meets throughout the State. 

McKelvie, one of the mainstays of the relay team assisted by Beidler, will have 
charge of the team and workouts will begin within the next week. Both these men 
have had a vast amount of experience in track and with the number of candidates 
expressing a desire to qualify for the team it is hoped that Osteopathy will take a place 
in track circles throughout the City and State. 

Candidates : 

Senior — Dr. McKelvie; Juniors — Beidler, Calmar, Rowe, Dealy; Sophomores — P.

Much interest was shown in bowHng this year by the 
under-graduate body. There was no inter-collegiate team, 
but rather the formation of a five team league composed of 
the faculty and each of the under-graduate classes. 

This, arrangement gave a larger number of "bowlers" a 
chance to show their skill and enjoy the matches. Many who 
did not join in the bowling were there to cheer their class 
teams on. The rivalry was keen and close right down to the 
last match. The Juniors were headed for a certain place 
at the top of the League until they were trimmed by the 
Seniors, in the last match by a very slender margin. 

In a keenly contested and bitter match these same 
Seniors were forced to drop a match to the Faculty. This 
finished the season with the Faculty holding first place. 


The team representing P. C. O. last year made a number of trips to neighboring 
colleges and played some interesting matches. 

The prospects for the coming season are brighter than of a year ago, with all 
members of last year's team eligible again this year. 

A schedule has been arranged with other colleges by Lincoln Ladd, Manager of the 
P. C. O. team. Of chief interest will be the matches with our own faculty. 

The Osteopathic expressions of Drs. Drewes, Street and Fischer at their partly 
manipulations of the little white fill lesioned in sand are to be anticipated with great 
enjoyment by the College team. Our Dean has been known to open up a bit during 
similar predicaments. Golf is more or less in its infancy at P. C. O. nevertheless an 
enjoyable season is anticipated.

The Philadelphia College of Osteopathy Tennis Team 
will inaugurate the opening of the outdoor season against St. 
Joseph's College, with brighter prospects than they have had 
in the past few years. This is due to the fact that Dr. Carl 
Fischer, former intercollegiate titleholder, will coach the 
Tennis squad. In addition to this the team will have home 
courts conveniently located, and in excellent shape at their 
disposal. This is quite a step forward and will enable the 
team to play matches on a home'and'home basis, arouse more 
interest among the student-body and provide another source 
of health-giving exercise. The squad itself is composed of 
veterans, every member of last years varsity being eager and 
willing to fight for his post. This group consists of Christcn- 
sen, Ramsay, Goldner, Adams, Shuman and Fagan. Among 
the new candidates, Dickerman, Steele, Brown, Garland and 
Ladd show much promise. The indoor season just closed, 
consisted of dual matches at the Penn A. C. which ended 
in favor of Penn A. C. A feature of the indoor season was 
the broadcasting of the second tennis match over station

Near the termination of the year, competitive examinations are given to those 
Seniors who may desire an internship in the Hospital. Not alone is the student 
chosen by his grade on the examination, but by his attitude while treating in the 
clinics, and during his Senior internship as found acceptable by a faculty com- 
mittee. These Physicians are put on the various services as General, Surgical, 
Obstetrical, and Laboratory Diagnosis, and much practical knowledge is gained in the 
work of these departments. 

One or two, showing the greatest interest in the work, may he held over as 
Senior Residents for the following year at the end of which time, they may take the 
Surgical Board Examinations.

The Junio7'S Invade The Qlinic 

Second of February and what it meant 

Was the Seniors left and the Juniors went — 

To the cHnic. 
Six score patients looked around 
Some were white and some were brown — 

In the clinic. 
Timidly were names called out 
Later the Juniors began to shout — 

In the clinic. 
Patients popped up here and there 
Saying: "Me?" or "Here" or "Where?" — . 

In the clinic. 
The Juniors went to work with vim 
To crack a neck or pull a chin — 

At the clinic. 
Patients there to cure their ills 
All were tired of taking pills — 

Thus the clinic. 
Now the Juniors feel quite proud 
Mingling with the ailing crowd — 

In the clinic. 
Grab a glass and drink a round 
They are out to gain renown — 

In the clinic. 
Later you will hear them say, 
When asked where they learned technique so gay,- 

"In the clinic".

in civihzation and is surprised to hear that the mothers are telling the story

Carm Pettapice — Has been very successful in his practice in Canada. "Carm" still 
has his weakness for x-rays. We hope that it has not yet had its effect, but 
we hope that "Carm" still retains his ability to see thru a subject. 

Bud Prescott — Has established a clinic with his brother.

demonstrated in college into fields where she can do a lot of good. 

Rig Reigner — Establishing himself in Florida, has done a lot in regard to neurological 

Ritchie — Head physician and cheer leader director at Upton College. 

Robbie — Has established a clinic whereby he can study further the reactions that 
women manifest under the present advancements of women suffrage. It is

Stan Rowe — Has been successful in his practice in Maine. Stan also has been appointed

for him there even if it is his home town.

how he and his "side kick" are running a race for first place in teaching — 
especially in cranial nerves for which he is especially noted. 

Tod Struse — Has incorporated with Dr. Py in teaching Bacteriology. He has a 
microscope of his own. 

Pete Talmage — Pete has settled down and at present is worried about his son who 
says even less than he did. 

Marion Van Ronk — Marion still has things her own way. 

Frank White — As a physical director he is a success.

(Concerning the ^^(Carr'ied ^JMen 

The annual meeting of "The Slaves of Eros" was held in the P. C. O. boiler-room 
on the first day of April, 1931. The roll call was taken and look who answered: 
Axtel, Beach, Beall, Holhrook, Eimerbrink, Leavitt, Leonard, Hershey, German, White 
and Evans. Others were called but luckily didn't answer. The object of the meeting 
was to determine as far as possible the advantage of Freud over the unmarried state. 
It is impossible to state here the arguments advanced by Leavitt and Axtell, but you 
will have to take our word for it that they were brief and to the point. 

The next topic of discussion was the present state of their scholastic standing, 
various points were introduced — yes — they were all high and nothing to be ashamed 
of, but all can't take the roll call and bet on the football games. 

The next article that was discussed was that of handshaking and "playing the 
profs." At this point in the meeting they all became very indignant as to which one 
was "to take out" Ferren. Various members were nominated, but Beach was un- 
animously elected. 

In regard to the question of stalling the Professors during their lectures many were 
called but Leonard and Hershey were congratulated and given gold keys on which 
were inscribed: "To you who have served us faithfully — 

Your questions have been timely and impossible." 

At this point time was called and the doors were thrown open. It was ten o'clock 
and it was the "wife's" night out — "Yes with the unmarried men". Perhaps you 
would be interested to know that one of the babies was found missing — we all grieve 
with Leonard. 

The meeting was resumed at 11:30; Leavitt made a nomination that the subject 
for their next meeting be an experimental Psychoanalysis and named one of the 
group to be the object — but alas; poor Holbrook was so severely injured that the 
doctor's orders were a year in a sanitarium. 

The meeting was rudely interrupted at this point by a Ford crashing outside the 
window — please, don't get alarmed for it was only Robinson with Leavitt's wife. 
Editor's note: "This only goes to prove that there ain't no good in women — or men 
either for that matter. 

Among the new members nominated we find the name of Stan Rowe. We really 
wish Stan all the luck in the world for they really aren't a bad outfit to get in with. 

Meeting adjourned and the married men all went home with their ever loyal 
wives and their howling kids. Do we envy them? Well that is the question.

That made mine ache . . . and where 

The shears had flitted 

On his neck . . . 

I longed to press my lips 

I felt a wreck. 

From measuring with my eye 

His shoulders — beams of strength 

And said ... at last have I 

Found IT . . . and when at length 

His face was turned . . . 

I sighed . . . 

I nearly died! ! ! ! 

And o'er my face there coursed a blush 

Oh, dear . . . 

'Twas he . . . whom I'd divorced . . .

To make a complete neurological examination 
It takes from eight to ten hours and five sheets 
of paper. 

A professional school must receive instructions 
in "The Modern Way of Teaching." What 
would the Junior lectures amount to if this plan 
be adopted? 

We all should try commuting — then we could 
abolish the eight o'clock class. 

What the clinic needs is better ventilation. 

Why doesn't somebody establish a free cardio- 
vascular clinic?

The term "all wool, a yard wide" is the hall-mark of 
quality in fabrics. 

But it is known that there are different grades of wool 
and still the term "all wool, a yard wide" could be 
truthfully applied to all, even to the inferior grades 
made over from wool which has been renewed. 

It is the quality that counts. 

It is equally true of Printing — quality of paper, of 
typography, of workmanship. 

"Quality Printing, as we do it, costs no more and is 
definitely superior."
