uifiL mmm ra Mr. Kati — This gentleman impressed us with his knowledge of child psy- chology evidently gained from his ele- mentary schoolteacher wife. Why, oh why, did he have to try it out on us? The only thing we learned about per- colations was whether to use drip or ground coffee. We realize it was a chore to " learn " us the proper tech- nique of Lead Oleate squeezing . . . but Mr. K., took pity on us and threw it out anyway. M. Chavkin — Probably the most use- ful and practical bit of information obtained during our entire Pharmacy course was picked up in Cosmetic Lab. We know that the best method of determining whether a woman has an oily skin is to reach over the counter and rub your forefinger down her nose ; drip- ping grease is proof of an oily complexion. Dr. Lou Allen — (We never did learn how to spell that name.) Our first meeting with this illustrious head of our Pharmacy Dept. was punctuated with an introduction to sixth grade math, with a warning that his little boy could do the prob- lems. Now we can safely say to the good Doctor that we are ready at any time to take on his little son in a contest of any SEVENTH grade prob- lems. We had our seri- ous days also. None will forget that dra- matic moment when Dr. L. leaned over the lectern, hands shoved deep in his pockets, put our worried minds E. EMERSON LEUALLEN at rest with the announcement ... " I assure you, I have no stock in Van Pelt and Brown. " And the humorous side ... " I was going to say that the odor of diluted lanolin has a sexy con- notation but 1 won ' t. " For this bad pun, the class overwhelmingly voted to take away his Remington. " Joe " Kanig — We have been dragged — er — brought close to Mr. Kanig during the three years of extensive Pharmacy training. Within his domain of Dispensing Laboratory, we devel- oped the techniques of our profession. We underwent a metamorphosis from slow, messy working Juniors to slow, messy working Seniors. We learned that abst. feb does not mean abstain in February, and that duodeviginti ... oh well, we know it now. Our fondest recollec- tion though, is of a pract ica I when a scream echoed across the laboratory, " CLOSE THAT BALANCE, " at which point four of our members lost por- tions of their hair which have never been regained, followed by a more temperate, " . . . or join the APhA. " Dr. Brown — His profi- ciency at scraping out ointments to weigh, amazed us all. And why was it that after carefully wei g h i ng each capsule and pow- der before having them checked, we were always horrif ed to find them weighing differe ntly then when counted. We also ■earned that you can triturate potassium chlorate with sucrose and live to tell the tale.

DEPORTIMHT Of BIOLOGy FOUR YEARS OF BIOLOGY Hit by a stone cell. The cat hit back. Was this trip necessary? Peaceful interlude during second year. Hit by smilax Aristolocomotive. Lost in Tsutsumaguchi Woods. ation of agony At some time in our future we will review vividly those events which through a period of four years — The Best Years of Our Lives — have molded our thoughts to a professional pace. Outstanding in our sanctum of memoirs is the Biology Department with its compendium of many branches of " bios " . Professor Pokorny will always be associated with Myxophyceae, and hi s intimate knowledge of the Catskill flora will never cease to amaze us. His sincere and, you might say, sophisticated manner of presenting his subject matter made our stay with him most pleasant. We modestly recall that Frank is the only person who identified Frangula correctly in the State Boards of ' 28 (?) All other candidates were certain the specimen was Cascara. This made us wonder why Rhamnus Frangula was readmitted to National Formula IX in 1950! Professor Pokorny is also the unsung hero and civic servant who exposed the wild growth of Stramonium in the vegetation bordering a playground under the Williamsburg bridge in Brooklyn (?) and reported the matter to the proper officials. Thus far no deaths have been reported following the ingestion of any plant parts by the undernourished children of the vicinity. He also demonstrated how to inject some life into a dull party by sprinkling some Lycopo- dium into the air and igniting. You might say that his efforts at whipping an active student body are evidenced by the great number of sports and school socials at which he is M. C. YOU MIGHT ALSO SAY that we ' re proud of the secretary of the New York chapter of the A. PH. A. What we remember of Botany today is a direct compliment to his effort. ALL RIGHT, how about Physiology! As Freshmen almost any odds could be secured in a wager as to the number of times Pro- fesor Halsey would say " all right " during the course of a lecture. Here it was that the anatomical position of man was described as the " Gonzel " position, where Shlemiels never tired of eating ham sandwiches while tipping their hats to the blonde shickses they always encountered. Professor Halsey will always be remembered for his surprise whistle and " on the double " routine, which were appreciated especially by the veterans in the class; his ambidextrous brain stem drawings; the never completed tale of the blind men and the elephant; those new-fangled exams in which a response may always, sometimes, or never, be elicited from a subliminal, liminal, superliminal, submaximal, maximal or supermaximal stimulus- — or none of these! When the going gets tough, we ' ll always remember that great guy whose broad shoulders are open — the right one for A.Z.O., the left one for the girls, and that leaves you, you know how many! Famous words: " Be honest or be intelligent, — preferably be both. " We ' d write more, but we ' re short of substrate. Besides there ' s an accumulation of acid metabolites, and we can ' t locate any accessory food factors! (Anybody got a chocolate bar?) And now to the reaction of the antigen and antibody — to the field whose subject matter is identified by physiological activity, serum, vaccine, ectotoxin, endotoxin, opsonin, complement, allergy, agglutination phages, filtrable viruses (referring to viruses which cannot be filtered) — and incidentally, bacteria. We were fortunate to be the first class to start the depreciation cycle of a new set of microscopes — the first new ' scopes purchased by C. U. C. P. since lord knows when ' . But were we able to see more than our predecessors? As our beloved Professor Fanchon Hart put it. " Bacteria don ' t do what they ' re supposed to do any more. " By the way, what are they supposed to do? Professor Hart is one of the few people who practices what she preaches. As our mentor in Bacteriology, Public Health, and with her well known interests in student activity and educa- tion, we came to realize that she seated us evenly throughout the room for the purposes of: ( 1 ) minimizing possibilities of droplet infection between students, (2) keeping our books and baggage from dirtying up the floor, (3) better blackboard visibility, and (4) to provide uniform erosion of the seats throughout the room. But we did learn Bacteriology! Professor Hart ' s able lecturing saw to that assisted, of course, by the appealing promise of a weekly quiz. We will always remember that winning smile whenever Professor Hart had to clear up repeatedly the mechanism of complement-fixation, or the confusion caused by bacterial mutation. The culmination of all our knowledge — from Zoology through Pharmacy — will always be spoken of with mixed reverence and awe as the " Dean ' s Course. " Professor Ballard didn ' t appear to have movie star glamor, but in his diminutive form we found a fountain of energy and dynamic brilliance. We were impressed by his systematic presentation of the complex con- tent of Materia Medica, and his generosity in never obtaining any royalties on the sale of his notes. Dean Ballard is a proponent of the six year curriculum as the only way to get across the increasing quantity of information which the practicing pharmacist might need (?) — all the facts about medicinals, their uses, doses, toxic symptoms, and above all, antidotes — with the re- minder that for any emergency, always have at hand the ' phone number of the nearest boy scout. 13
