Fellow Classmates :
We have come to the parting of the ways. Another chapter of our lives is about to close, and it is with sadness that I address you for the last time. Yet the thrill, the anticipation that this moment brings, is what we have been striving so hard to attain. It is as though we have been slowly closing our hand upon our goal, and when at last we have gripped it tightly we would open it, the fear of losing the friendships acquired during the struggle.
We are graduating in a year that will stand without peer in the history of our college. The passing of a truly great man has left a lasting impress upon us. A man who lived to help others and whose life has been directly responsible for our opportunity. Achievements such as those of Russell Conwell are practically impossible for us, but if we have but gathered a few of his virtues the world will profit by our existence.
Our Dean and his associate professors we leave with respectful regret, knowing they will be as patient and earnest in their instruction of the under classmen as they were with us.
To the college we can but add praise and criticism of a constructive nature, hoping to lend future financial as well as moral support.
It is fitting at this time to pay tribute to the memory of Samuel Feldman, our classmate, whose supreme sacrifice was the result of an injury received while serving in the World War.
Let us go into practice with a determination to succeed; demand a just return for our efforts; be charitable where the need is apparent: gentle in manner; choose for associates respected and favored citizens; he ethical, progressive and instructive.
1 hid you good-bye and wish you all good luck.
Page Thirty-nineDr. Charles E. Beury
in Shamokin, August 13, 1877. Educated in the public schools of city. Graduated from Shamokin High in 1899. Received his A.B. i Princeton in 1903 and LL.B. from Howard Law School in 1906.
He has been active in philanthropic and humanitarian work during the World War, serving as a special commissioner to the Near East and going on a special mission to Russia in 1917 for the American Red Cross. He investigated the conditions in Persia. Turkey and Caucasia, and upon his return published a book entitled “Russia After the Revolution.' which was regarded by-relief workers as a most authoritative and studied analysis of the then existing situations.
In the latter part of 1918 he was one of a group of twelve selected for the National Council of the American Red Cross to present its progress and past accomplishments to the people of the nation. He is a trustee of the Near East W elfare Association, vice president of the Germantown Y. M. C. A., member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania, and a member of its finance and executive committees. He is also governor of the Church Club of Philadelphia. He is a member of the Art Club, Princeton Club, Howard Club, White Marsh Valley-Country Club and Seaview Country Club.
Dr. Beury was married on June 27, 1906, to Miss Ella P. Fischer. Immediately after he began practicing law in Philadelphia, in which he continued until 1920, when he became a banker.
He has traveled extensively, once around the world and twice to the Near East on relief work. He believed, as Dr. Conwell, in a university conductd for men and women who must work for their living while acquiring higher education.
Page PartyThe Class Poem
Our school days now are over,
We've traveled o’er the safe, dry land, Where we've been chums together.
Walking closely, hand in hand.
Is there a prophet who could tell us All that we wish to know About our life and future.
Just where our ship will go?
We've journeyed through our College days With great care and strife.
But now we’re at the port Where we sail out into life.
Life is one vast water.
The Class is one large fleet.
Made to sail the stormy ocean And all its dangers meet.
The sunny month of June has come.
The parting day is near.
When we must leave these College halls And the school to us so dear.
The school which our feet may leave.
But not our hearts;
The chain may lengthen.
But it never parts.
Every one of us will try To make his ship sail well,
With sails to the breeze unfurled.
With banners flying! Farewell!
JOS. OLIVER ERICSSONRussell H. Conwell
USSELL H. CONWELL was born on February 15, 1843, among the hills of Western Massachusetts, where every prospect pleases, hut where money was so scarce that he had to earn all that he needed for an education beyond that which he got in the little red school house about a mile from his home. He taught music, waited on tables, did all sorts of things to carry himself through Wilbraham Academy and Vale University.
The Civil War interrupted his college course, he volunteering in the beginning and serving to the end.
In camp he read law, and after the war was over he attended the Albany Law School, which granted him its diploma. While studying law he worked as a reporter, first on the Boston “Traveller,” and then on the New York “Herald.” While with the Boston “Traveller” he was sent on a trip around the world, at that time a great undertaking. It was to this young man a university education, because he was alive to every scene, to every condition with which he came in contact. After serving a valuable apprenticeship in the newspaper world and having secured his diploma with the right to practice law, he opened a law office in Boston, where he built up a successful practice.
He had the gift of oratory and the young lawyer began to make speeches and deliver lectures. He taught a great Bible class in Tremont Temple, and here the feeling grew? that he must go out as a preacher and a teacher. He studied theology in the Newton Theological Seminary, still a lawyer, but now also a lecturer and a teacher. On Sundays he preached in old historic Lexington in a little wooden church. But the church grew so fast under his preaching that the little church was pulled down and a larger and finer one built. By this time his fame as a preacher was spreading and a man down in Philadelphia heard of him. He asked him to preach a trial sermon in his church, which needed a preacher, and on a Thanksgiving Day, 1882, Russell H. Conwell began his work in Philadelphia.
He started, almost immediately after beginning his work in Philadelphia, a Young Men's Congress, modeled on our National Congress. When in the city he presided at its meetings. Here hundreds of young men received training in public speech and parliamentary procedure. Some members of the old Congress hold positions of national importance today.
Page Forty-twoBut in that church there were some young people who soon realized that they could not achieve the possibilities of the vision held out to them unless they had more education. They appealed to Dr. Conwell. In response he formed a class in 1881 to help a group of young men get ready for college. Me taught the class himself. Very soon others had to be called in to help him. By 1888 he realized that the need was so great in Philadelphia and the classes he had started had already become so numerous, it was wise to obtain a charter that these students might have official recognition for the work they were doing. Young people of all denominations had applied for admission to the classes that had been formed, and Dr. Conwell wisely decided that this new college must be entirely non-sectarian, open to all the people of the city who needed it, regardless of sex, race or religion. Its charter read “Primarily for Working Men." So department by department the college grew, its work became more highly organized and its name was changed to Temple University; a university that began with seven students and one class, but which numbers today 10,000 students und all the departments of a great university.
All through the strenuous years with all these enterprises in hand the necessity had continued for Dr. Conwell to go up and down the length and breadth of our land lecturing to audiences great and small, traveling night and day. that money might he forthcoming when needed to keep things going. Because of his own early struggles he is perhaps peculiarly interested in young men who want to make good. He has helped these young men, not only in Philadelphia, hut all over the country. But apart from the service the money earned has rendered, the lecture itself, be it “Lessons of Travel,” “Daniel Manin," “Garibaldi," “The Silver Crown." “The Angel’s Lily," or “Acres of Diamonds," has the fundamental theme been ever the same—if a man will make the most of himself, will give his best service to others, he will serve God best and be happiest himself.
In one of bis lectures he closes with:
“He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best."
As a lecturer be has taught more people the great fundamental truths of life than any other man of his century.
This is necessarily a much abridged history of the extraordinary services of one man to his generation. Perhaps the most fitting close would be the words with which many thousands of men and women all over the land have heard him close his lecture “Acres of Diamonds":
Faye Forty-three“Greatness consists not in holding of some future office, but really consists in doing great deeds with little means and the accomplishment of vast purposes from the private ranks of life. To be great at all one must he great here, now. in his own city. He who can give his city or town better streets and better sidewalks, better schools and more colleges, more happiness and more civilization, more of God. he will be great anywhere. Let every man or woman here, if you never hear me again, remember this: that if you wish to be great at all you must begin where you are and what you are now. lie that can give to his city any blessing, he who can be a good citizen while he lives here, he that can make better homes, he that can be a blessing whether he works in the shop or sits behind the counter or keeps house, whatever be his life, lie who would he great anywhere must first be great in his own town.”

ABRAHAM MORDECAI AVERBACH Philadelphia, Pa.
Abe is the original wise bird of the class and is always ready and capable of explaining any of the mysterious occurrences around the school.
A firm believer in ethical dentistry, we entertain high hope for his future in the profession.
Aside from dentistry', his main hobby is blondes. He intends to specialize in exodontia.
Activities—Alpha Omega Fraternity (Treasurer), Senior Class (Treasurer).
LOUIS J. BERG Philadelphia, Pa.
“Where’s Lou Berg?” was a common question of his classmates, ami usually best answered by getting samples. He was not only a sample hunter, of course not; he was also a bargain hunter.
Rumors have permeated the class that Louis’ single bliss will come to an end shortly after graduation. Since we have met her we are sure Lou will be a success with her guiding influence. Others who have met her are sure of this.
Page Forty-nineJOSHUA JORDON BERRY Atlantic City, N. J.
There is a halo of mystery surrounding this breezy youth from the seashore. One often wonders where lie gets all the pretty damsels at every collegiate affair, although there is a line-up about his chair the day following the affair for the name and address of the woman in question. We have yet to see any girl brought up by Josh appear again at any social function. either in his company or in any one else's.
Mis main hobby is “big timing.”
Activities—Alpha Omega Fraternity, Addie Society. Essig Society.
GEORGE M. BLACKMAN Ocean City, N. J.
After Commencement exercises in the Ocean City High School in 1922, a mosquito plague broke out in that vicinity and the populace moved north. In the caravan was little Georgie Blackman, who immediately entered the enrollment of P. I). C.
Georgie is one of the happy-go-lucky boys of the class who is always viewing the favorable aspect of things. Although quite apt in the art of digging (clams), he was completely overshadowed when he matched his skill with the diggers (gold) from Philadelphia.

Tiny grew to a height of 6 feet on Pine Tar, hut it is all good stuff. A diligent and thoughtful student with a keen sense of appreciation for practical dentistry. Ilis curly hair is proof of Ids popularity with the ladies at the regular Saturday night parties. His is a student of music and horse racing. An odd combination, hut Curly is capable.

ELIGIO R. CERINO Philadelphia. Pa.
“Barney” is another one of South Philly's contributions to P. D. C. He is of a very retiring nature, which makes it a tough proposition for any one to get anything on this gentleman of culture—a true product of Professor Faught.
Being on the sick list for a number of weeks did not seem to affect his point collection at all. Here indeed is a fine operator and always a good student.
Societies—E. V. E. Club. Russell Society.

Jake attended Central High School and Temple prep- Served in the U. S. Army during the World War, where he became expert in extracting Germans from dugouts, so after the war he decided to come to P. D. C. to try his luck on extracting teeth. He is getting along fine, but claims the latter is far more difficult.
Jake has obtained many distinctions the short four years he has been with us, and his ability as an operator is beyond question.
Dover, N. J.

‘“Jack" finished his prep, at St. Joe's College, then struck out for dentistry. He first won recognition as a good student when he captured one of the anatoim prizes, and this is something of which he can proudly boast. He has made many lasting friendships during the past four years, and he has the characteristics of a good student. “Jack" has a weakness for the "weaker" sex, and when he is not busy on his books you can always find him at the “studio," where he is considered a regular customer.
As we look into the future we can see “Jack" as a successful dentist.

This six-foot lumberjack from New Hampshire tired of pulling roots in the forests and decided on something smaller and took teeth. Dinny’s aggressiveness soon won him a place in his class standing, and under the (Haas) method became famous. His reward was granted and he received the appointment at the Hahnemann Hospital, where he extracted deciduous teeth with notable proficiency.
His quiet, observing nature made many friends for him in his college days, and there is no doubt that Hinny will always be a friend to everybody, even if he is a dentist.

Gone, but not forgotten—World War veteran—a fine fellow and one whom we always miss. Honest, straightforward and conscientious. No man can excell those qualities.An Historical Biography of the Graduating Class of 1926
OTWITHSTANDING the fact that the task of compiling a broad and comprehensive history of the class of 1926 is a matter of no light moment, the historian wishes to express a sense of pleasure in contemplating the task and also of having been greatly honored. His feeling is substantiated by a conviction that the record of this class is equal in merit of scholarship and achievement to that of any of the previous graduated classes.
The history of the class did not necessarily begin on the day that we first assembled at P. D. C. Rather did it begin on the successive days that the individual members of the class were born, so that each member represents a strand by means of which the tapestry revealing the minutest details of the class history was made.
Our history therefore becomes a work, the beauty of which does not depend on the viewpoint of a single individual, the historian, but it consists of the actions, the records, achievements and characteristics of each and every member. One might even say that the history of '26 is not a history in the sense that one ordinarily conceives history to be. but a biography, if you will, made more stirring and beautiful by the sincerity with which the class overcame all obstacles, and there were many, in its attempt to reach an ultimate goal—the degree of doctor of dental surgery.
While we have agreed that the class history did not begin when we first entered the portals of our Alma Mater, it is. of course, impossible to trace the progress of each class member in his preparation for the beginning of a professional career. It will be necessary to individualize all public facts and to generalize all private facts so that we are only able to pick up those strands of our historical tapestry that reveal to us the natal day of our class; the day in September of 1922 when we first assembled at P. D. C. An actual class, of course, did not then exist; rather did it consist of a mass of bewildered individuals, approximately one hundred and seventy-five, each supporting the other in their bewilderment, futilelv casting about for a way in which to begin their dental careers.
Help came from a very welcome source. Bulletins instructed us to assemble in the upper amphitheatre, where we were met by our dean. Dr. Broomell, who immediately impressed us with his personality. We realized that here was a man who had become well known as a teacher and practitioner of dentistry.
His audience was rather cosmopolitan, and one wonders what thoughts must have run through his mind as he looked upon us. He saw a group of individuals, consisting of callow youth fresh from high school, matured faces, men who had attended other colleges, ex-service men. clerks, native Philadelphians, coal mining
Page Ninety-eightreprescntalives, representatives of various Stales and countries, a variety of nationalities and what not. But it is certain that he could not help feeling impressed by the intelligence and sincerity expressed on the faces of those men whom he looked upon. His sincere words of welcome and advice proved that. He informed us as to just what we could expect in college life; its advantages, its pitfalls, the honor of membership in our profession and a world of fatherly advice that set our vague fears at rest and inspired us with confidence. When he finished he introduced Dr. Fischelis, whom we were all soon to know and like. He elaborated upon what our dean had told us and read a message that he gave to each new incoming class. It was filled with advice and entirely appreciated by his audience.
The class was then instructed that sessions were to start on the following day. A period of activity then began. Sight-seeing parties examined the college campus and found that the nearest patch of green was a mile away and that Baldwin's W orks just about made up the school boundaries. What with the selection of rooming houses, buying of books and instruments and a multitude of other things, we were kept quite busy.
With lectures taking place in the upper and lower amphitheatres and with laboratories in full swing, the career of ’26 was begun in earnest. At each new lecture we were met by our respective professors and instructors, each of whom gave us a personal talk and advised us as to the requirements of his course, and we realized that a busy year was before us.
The subject of histology was given by Dr. Fischelis; Dr. Busca lectured to us on teeth morphology and operative technique. He was assisted in the operative laboratory by Drs. Herman. Broomell and Sutliffe, where we first learned what the inside of a tooth looked like. Physiology was given by Dr. Scott. He showed a strong attachment for dear old Medico-Chi and never tired of telling us of his college days and his work with Dr. Ott. Chemistry was given by Dr. Boom, whom wTe learned was to be w ith us until our Junior year. Here was a real teacher and student’s friend. With heart and soul in his work and a deep love for P. D. C. and its students, we may safely say that Dr. Boom sacrificed what might have been an eminent medical career and gave himself to the teaching of his students. His efforts were always fully realized and appreciated. We soon learned that there was little that he did not know, until we listened in wonder to a man whose mind embraced almost every known science and cultural subject. He was never at a loss for words, and his pacing back and forth as he lectured forms a vivid picture. We can’t help also thinking of those of us who somehow or other couldn’t keep awake. Dr. Boom forgave them. Dean Broomall lectured on dental rhetoric and anatomy and histology of the oral tissues. The subject of anatomy impressed us as a most difficult subject. It was given by Prof. Addinell Hew son. and several days later the dissecting room opened, and it w as
Page Ninety-ninewith a variety of sensations that we entered and found our respective tables and parts. A remarkably pleasant, flower-like odor, exuded by a pile of skeletons, greeted our distended nostrils. “Dissecting,’ if one can call it such, began in earnest, and with cards and books to guide us we soon succeeded in dislocating the long suffering cadavers. We studied feverishly and prepared for Dr. Hewson’s oral quiz and star chamber.
No one of us will ever forget the sensation of waiting to enter that room. The anxiety, the asking of all sorts of anatomy questions, observing those who had been in as to whether they were happy or sad. the asking of whether the “old boy” was in a good humor, and then the final entry will always remain with us. Of course, outside wc forget all we knew, but as we entered things cleared up and Dr. Hewson’s pleasantness and courtesy assisted us in passing the examination.
Dr. Chesner gave lectures on osteology and syndesmology; Dr. Friedenberg, a learned and sincere man, was our anatomy quiz-master.
Real dissecting began on that Iong-looked-for day when we were instructed to clean our parts, and we certainly did clean them. Louie, whose pleasant occupation was to hobnob with the “stiffs,’’ was always there ready to promise to clean up a part if financially remunerated.
Social life was also introducing itself into our college life. Suddenly we found ourselves quite popular with the various fraternities: Xi Psi Phi, Psi Omega, Alpha Omega, and later the Sigma Epsilon Delta. The affairs of the class did not, however, take place without the usual guidance of class officers. We soon realized the value of organization and the following were elected:
President—S. F. Reese. Secretary—F. Kornblat.
Vice President—B. Lynch. Treasurer—B. P. Roberts.
Under their guidance the affairs of the class were well managed and the Freshman dance that we gave at Hotel Majestic, aside from other dances and benefits, can be pointed to as distinct successes. And so it was that with hard work and some fun mixed in we reached the very welcome holidays, which gave those of us who came from other towns and cities a chance to see their folks again.
Then came the day when we were to take the mid-year examinations. Naturally, we were all nervous, it being for many of us our first college examination. They passed by, and while most of us succeeded, some few went down. Finally we neared the end of our first term. There was “boning” and quizzing galore and we were crammed full of knowledge when we took our examinations. The end of it was that we finally laid our pencils aside with a roar of relief, grabbed our hags and baggage and made a “bee-line” for our respective homes, after having said au revoir to our classmates and friends.
Page One HundredWe soon returned to P. D. C. after a summer of either work or loafing with renewed vigor. The halls resounded with “Glad to see you,” “How you been'.'''’ “Whatcha doin’?” “It’s great to get back,” and what not. After lining up and waiting about three hours to pay tuition, we finally began our sophomore year. By this time we were acclimated to and acquainted with the customs of P. C. D. and we soon settled down with the following officers presiding over our class affairs:
President—R. Gick. Treasurer—E. Frank.
Vice President—G. L. Snell. Secretary—C. Kershner.
Dr. Scott soon introduced us to the nervous system, and by the time we got through we were all fit for padded cells. Dr. Miller introduced us to bacteriology, and he really made it interesting. Dr. Boom continued with organic chemistry and metallurgy. By this time we had him all figured out. Six steps to the right, six to the left, eyes closed, or. when open, gazing into space. “We find" and other mannerisms will keep him always in memory. Dr. Rusca gave us the fundamentals of operative dentistry, and we remembered everything taught us. The other professors continued along former pursued lines. Dr. Hewson was still after us, hook, line and sinker. The dissecting room resounded with cadavers groans, throwing of bones, dissecting room songs, Dr. Abbott and other things that helped enlighten our tasks. We soon finished our parts and said good-bye to the dissecting room. We still had to face Dr. Hewson in a private, final oral examination. We all lost at least five pounds waiting in that closed-in room.
Finally the year ended and another summer of work and pleasure stretched before us, a welcome relief from the two strenuous years which most of us were able to pass through safely. Many took the partial State Board examination and later found we had passed 100 per cent, maintaining P. D. C.’s record.
At last we had reached the beginning of the final lap—the Junior year. No more were we expected to perform dental operations on inanimate objects, such as the typodont and tooth brush handle. We were to work, practice or malpractice on live dental tissues.
Most of us began with the famous “prophy,” the principles of which had been impressed, taught and banged into us by Dr. Beck. Point hunting then began in earnest. The environment assisted us in our work. A large airy clinic with a goodly number of chairs, white walls and ceiling, freshly painted and glossy floors, a new' ventilation system, hot water sterilization and a number of other improvements under the direction of Professor Faught made the work more interesting and instructive. We soon became acquainted with the corps of instructors. Dr. Beiser, the ever earnest and sincere friend and teacher, will always be recalled. He was ably assisted by Drs. “Got any Candy" Hess; “Rubber-dam” Walters. “Microscope” Kelly, “Bevel the
Page One Hundred and OneCavo-surface Angle” Gleason, Lord, Monaghan, Shallcross and Powell. All of whom were always ready and willing to assist us. Dr. Faught presented the lectures in operative dentistry. Dr. Russell presented anaesthesia and oral surgery, Dr. Boom was still with us in materia medica, Dr. Essig gave prosthetic dentistry, Dr. Addie, assisted by Drs. “Radio’’ Velutini and “Barney” Oldfield, presided over crown and bridge; Drs. Casio and Beatty gave us radiology and applied bacteriology, and Dr. Inglis taught dental pathology and therapeutics.
Being juniors, the number of points expected of us seemed almost unattainable. Aside from this we had to make other requirements, among which the making of dentures was pre-eminent. But whether or not the plates fitted was a horse of another color.
Dr. Wilbur, assisted by Dr. Pownall. took charge of the prosthetic department. The class affairs were managed by—
President—J. Hughes. Treasurer—F. Travaglini.
Vice President—G. Rose. Secretary—M. C. Hill.
All requirements were met and passed, and we found that at last but a few months separated us from seniorhood. It was during this year that a classmate of ours, an ex-service man, passed away. Samuel Feldman died as a result of having been gassed in France. His passing was a distinct loss to many of us.
Time stops for no one, and before we finally realized it summer had fled and we were back at P. D. C. for the last stretch. We had at last become seniors. Together we had passed the same examinations, met the same requirements, supported each other in our joys and sorrows, and together we had overcome all obstacles in our race toward the final year. A class of ninety-seven contemplated this thought. Here we were, with real knowledge stored away and ready to utilize that knowledge in passing the year and meeting and overcoming the State Board in true P. D. C. fashion.
The clinic had been improved. Newr chairs had been provided, new lockers, a larger prosthetic department, a new X-ray unit, and a number of other improvements had been made, calculated to improve the efficiency of our already efficient clinic. Credit for these improvements must be given to Dr. Faught, who, when he retired from active dental practice, devoted all his time to our clinic.
Unlike the Junior, it did not take us long to get started. Many of us were present the first day the clinic opened and the rolling up of points began in earnest, and we certainly needed them. With the operative work, dentures, crown and bridge, cultures, X-ray work, ceramics, extractions, and the meeting of the State Board, we had plenty of work on hand to keep us busy, and it was all we could do to keep from falling apart in the rush to meet these requirements.
Dr. “Rubber Dam” Walters was given every opportunity to insist on the appli-

cation of iiis beloved rubber dam. “Rubber dam, doctor, rubber dam, or I won’t talk to you.” Of course, Dr. Monaghan was there with his rough and ready wit, but he was well liked. Dr. Lord was the clinic sphinx. He ran. however, a close second to Dr. Calely, our practical crown and bridge teacher. Dr. Shallcross, pleasant and smiling as usual, handed out points and encouraged many a discouraged student. Dr. Powell always bad operative dentistry at bis finger tips, and be knew how to teach it. Dr. Gleason went around asking for deeper cavities. “A little more retention and bevel your cavo-surface angles.” Dr. Kelly and his confrere, the microscope, liked to dissect our gold margins. He was some gold digger, and we kept busy thinking up jokes to get bis mind off of wliat be was doing. Dr entura turned out to be a regular fellow. Later in the term Dr. Matthews, an alumnus of Dr. Bciser’s class, joined the staff. The entire corps kept after us tooth and nail and a high grade of work was turned out. Dr. Halpern was always there with bis precise and accurate knowledge and helped us out of more than one difficulty.
And so it continued, day after day, with always the State Board in mind. The clinic was a scene of activity. Patients went back and forth and all sorts of dental operations were in evidence. Sections were soon assigned to extraction and each was given a chance to “yank 'em out.” Drs. Haas and Russell took charge of the work. Dr. Casto continued to orate on radiology and Dr. Beatty was on hand every day with bouillon a la bugs. During our Senior year she was assigned a separate department and office with the latest appliances for the pursuit of bacteriology.
The lectures continued as usual. Dr. Faught was there with bis exact terms and word dissection in operative dentistry. Dr. Russell continued in oral surgery, with bis usual reference to all the disasters that were lo befall us on our first two years ol practice.
Being seniors, we found that many class responsibilities rested upon us. Money was in need for our Record Book. State Board fee. diploma fee. dance and theatre tickets, class dues, rings, pictures, and a world of other things. Class affairs were managed by—
President—R. H. Gal lien. Treasurer—A. Averbach.
N ice President—M. Wolfgang. Secretary—M. Solcow.
Elmer Frank was elected Editor-in-Cbief: Harry Ericsson, Business Manager; George Snell, Assistant Editor, and David Wolowitz, Assistant Business Manager.
A Senior dance and theatre benefit was planned and carried through successfully. We continued breaking records in point collections. More than a few soon bad all the requisite points. The clinic was kept active, and day by day we neared the school Mock Board and official State Board. Both were met creditably.
And so it was that finally we completed our school careers. All requirements
Page One Hundred and Threewere met and passed. The strenuous Senior year had been overcome and we were about ready to serve the public. P. D. C. taught us well. Graduation was not possible unless the student was of the highest standard. The only way in which we can repay our Alma Mater, then, is to maintain the same standard of scholarship and workmanship that so successfully guided us through a strenuous four-year course. Much more could be written as class history, but time and space will not permit.
And now, fellow classmates, friends, we have reached the parting of the ways, the inevitable cross-roads, the dawn of a new experience. An experience to be lived through individually and not collectively, as was true of the past. But please remember that every day, whether it be the dawn of a new experience or the dawn of a new days, brings with it a message, a message which is the key, the open sesame to success and happiness. It tells us to live each day as we see it. to live it right. I can think of no better words to express that message than the following translation from the Sanscrit:
Look to this day, for it is life.
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the beauties And realities of your existence.
The bliss of youth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is already a dream And tomorrow is only a vision.
But every day, well lived.
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day;
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
And such is my salutation. Look to each day and your yesterdays will become dreams of happiness and your tomorrows will become not merely visions, but realities, actualities of success and happiness.

Page One Hundred and FourWILNSKI’26Prophecy
The prophecy of the Class of 1926 of the Temple University Dental School is in itself a true future of each member named. You will appreciate the fact that it is almost impossible for one man to prophesy the future of one hundred, hut since it is entirely essential, and being of great foreseeing power, I am able to prophesy great things for some, and possible not so great for others.
One evening in the spring of 1916. after having a very busy day at the office of my established practice in Southern California, I lighted up my good old college pipe and proceeded to read the topics of the day.
On this particular night the old pipe especially appealed to me and it seemed to bring hack some of the happy days I spent in the vicinity of Baldwin's, Philadelphia.
A little later my better half entered the room and immediately brought up the subject of a vacation. After a little discussion and since having a very prosperous winter and no previous vacation for three or four years, we decided to visit some of my good old pals in our new “Fordoplanc.”
At this time automobiles are entirely out of date and nearly every one owns a “Fordoplane,” the flat roofs of homes serving as convenient landing platforms.
So, on a bright morning early in May we started "Fast, making a bee-line for “Philly ’ and surrounding territory.
I had been constantly advised of the whereabouts of the majority of my classmates by my good pal “Cy” Forrestal Hevner, who, having made his sock full practicing in Washington, D. C., had retired and had been appointed assistant to the Dean of the Temple University Dental School.
After a long and tiresome trip we came to the welcome skyline of good old “Philly” and “Billy Penn.” W e decided to have a good night's rest first and then visit the school of my Alma Mater.
Sure enough, it was the same old place, with one exception; the hot dog stand was now missing. But a moment later I noticed it had been moved into the school lobby, which was better than standing in line during bad weather to get a mid-day hot dog. We proceeded to enter the building, and then to the office. The same old door stood at the end of the hall with the inscription “Dean of the School of Dentistry.” but something seemed strange. Sure enough, as 1 read further—Andrew Colvin. Dean.
We entered the door and were cordially greeted by my old classmate. After spending some time with him and going over old times, he excused himself, saying he had to leave, as he needed a hair cut. He advised me that Travaglini was his barber, who had a combination barber shop and dental office at Eighteenth and
Page One Hundred and SixCallowhill streets. He also informed me that Ed Ruehlman had a manicuring parlor in the same building.
On our way out we noticed a new inscription on one of the doors in the hall, as follows: “Office of the Inter-Fraternity Council, R. H. Gallien, E. B. Frank and
H. Roseman.” We entered and were greeted by Politician Henry, who told us that at last the school had a well functioning Inter-Frat. Council and the three mentioned were devoting a few hours a week to the welfare of the fraternities.
We entered the clinic and here I was greeted by Dr. George Dolby, now professor of operative dentistry, and Dr. Jack Summa, head demonstrator on the floor. A familiar face appeared in an operating room. To my astonishment it was ‘ V ubba-l)am” Walters. Later on one of the students told me that he was still giving three or four points for a “D. 0.” amalgam in a third molar. Some new demonstrators I recognized were Drs. Arthur Wark. Charley Powers, John Ix e, Frank Panel 1 i, Ben Staller and Walter Kozik.
From the clinic we proceeded to the fourth floor, and on entering the back hallway we soon caught the fumes of Morte Homines. I'pon entering the dissecting room 1 immediately recognized Chew in charge of the “stiffs.” He informed me that John Curry was now head demonstrator in anatomy and his assistants were Jakey Goldberg, George Blackman, Ed Green, Katz and Murry.
From there we decided to look o er the amphitheatre. It was 5 o'clock and the Sophomores were waiting for their anatomy professor to enter. The old benches looked natural, as I noticed the initials J. 11. carved on several of them, having remembered Jay Hutchinson carving them way hack in ’26. while listening to an interesting lecture in Radiology one Wednesday morning.
The door opened and in walked the professor of anatomy. He was given a big hand and I did not recognize him until he spoke. It was my old pal “Matty.” Well, he sure deserved his title, for lie knew his stuff when we were Sophomores. Matty called off his lecture for the day and we began to talk over old times. He advised me that Karl Robison was now on the major faculty, having received his M.I). degree at Temple. He was soon appointed to fill the chair of oral surgery after Dr. Russell's retirement. He also advised me that Flossy Kornblatt was now at the head of the hygiene department, and. as usual, was well liked by all the students. “Orthodontia” Joe Nedzinskas was a demonstrator in orthodontia and “Beck” Roberts was at the head of the chiropody department.
It was getting late, so we soon hopped off and it was only a few minutes until we were in Norristown. It was dark, and soon after landing I was informed that Drs. Harry and Joseph Ericsson were upholding the records they established at the College as the best workers of their class. How those bovs could work.
After dinner we decided to take in a movie. We stopped at the first one we came
Page One Hundred and Sevento and I saw a sign in front of the theater reading: “Big Show Tonight, Vaudeville and Pictures, Featuring Your Favorite Star. Johnny I luges, in ‘A Different One Every Night.' ” So we decided to enter. There was a short intermission between the movie and vaudeville, at which time a man came down the aisle shouting “candy, peanuts and chewing gum." I knew that voice at once, none other than Herman Pearlstein's.
The first act of vaudeville was not so hot, but the second was very good. It was entitled “The Four Stein Brothers." Dickstein, Cerstein. Hockstein and Rubenstein, singing their famous old song, ‘it's Nine Fifteen, I'll Have to Take Your Chair."
Late that evening we returned to “Philly." We put away the plane for the night and decided to take a little walk before retiring. We walked down Spring Garden street to Broad, where we noticed a large crowd of people gathered in the middle of the street. We realized at once there had been an accident. It appeared as though a number 43 car had struck a yellow cab. We crowded in and heard an argument between the conductor and the cab driver. A moment later the argument came to a close and the men were shaking hands. I was certain I knew one of them, so I waited until the crowd dispersed and then walked over and shook hands with my two classmates, Whitey. the cab driver, and Bob Gick, the conductor. Bob informed me that Humma, who was now a moving picture operator at the Stanley Theater, had just got off the car at the previous stop.
We bade them good-bye and continued our walk down Spring Garden street. On the corner of Twelfth and Spring Garden I noticed three huge glass balls hanging over the sidewalk. I had seen some of these during my school days, but these seemed larger. On the window of the pawnshop was written “Money to Loan, Joseph L. Levy. Second-hand Dental Instruments a Specialty."
It was late, so wre turned back for the night. The next day it was warm, so we decided to take in a baseball game at Shibe Park, as the A.’s w'ere playing the Yankees. A large crowd was out for the game. It was three o’clock and the “Ump" announced the batteries for the game as follows: “For the Athletics, Wilhour will pitch." A great cheer arose and 1 could not hear the other announcements. Wilhour pitched a fine game, and the A’s won easily. 26-0. 1 waited for Wilhour after the game and
had a short talk with him.
That night we entered a drug store on Market street to get a refreshing drink, and to my surprise the proprietor was Dave Dyen. I could not help but laugh when Dave said he could sell me a quart of good old stuff for two dollars. He told me it was a new substitute of his own and that he was making a fortune with it. Dave informed me Cerino, Abe Lubowitz and Meyer Solcow all had fine offices in Philadelphia or vicinity and were doing splendid.
The next day we started up State to call on several of my classmates, Cy Hevner
Page One Hundred and Eighthaving informed where to look for them. Our first stop was Pottsville, Pa., where 1 knew Chink Youngfleish was located. I found him a very busy man; besides practicing dentistry he was interested in a society for the prevention of cruelty to dumb animals, and was also a member of the newly organized reformers' club.
The same afternoon we hopped over to Minersville, Pa., and hunted up Joe Grabarek. Joe was sure “sitting on 'em." as he had a nice practice and was a part owner of a very nice restaurant in his home town. Our next hop was to Tamaqua and Summit Mill, Pa. At Summit Hill I located Gilbert Rose, who had made enough practicing dentistry and had been devoting most of his time to giving the young men of his town boxing instructions. This line for Gibby was tiie stuff for him, for he could surely handle his mitts while in college. It was Saturday, so we accepted Gihhy’s invitation and spent the night in Summit Hill. The next morning he took us to Tamaqua to attend church. The church was crowded, as the people were out to welcome their new minister. We managed to obtain seats just as the minister entered the pulpit. He was none other than the Rev. Robert W. Jewells, who had finally given up dentistry for the ministry. We waited for Rob after church and had quite a chat with him. He informed me that Hamilton was with his brother in Reading, Pa., and they had a very nice practice.
From Tamaqua we went to Wilkes-Barre, Pa., where Hanisek was a busy exodontist on the old familiar busy square. He told me that Timmy Mras had been in to see him a few days before. Timmy, he said, had given up dentistry soon after graduation to go back to the mines in Plymouth, Pa., where he had made plenty and had retired some time ago.
From Wilkes-Barre we followed the old Susquehanna to Scranton, where we found a directory in an effort to locate Mike Wolfgang and Louis Serling. We located Mike and found him enjoying a very fine practice, but Mike was still worrying. What he was worried about now was whether it was best to buy a Packard or a Rolls-Royce.
Going down Lackawanna avenue in Scranton we noticed a sign on one of the buildings which read: “Painless Dentistry. Try My Sweet Air. Plates $3.00. Dr. Louis Serling."
The next day we started across the Poconos for New York, where I was certain some of the boys could not have escaped. We put our plane away and decided to retire early, as we were very tired. The next afternoon we took a walk down Broadway. At Forty-second street I could not help hut notice an immense sign on one of the buildings which read: “Four Out of Five Use Dr. Gill’s Tooth Paste. Price 10 Cents, Three for a Quarter." Down in one corner of the sign I noticed the name Wienski written, which could hardly be any one but our Ed in the sign painting business.
That night we went to a cabaret, as it had been some time since we had attended
Page One Hundred and Ninea dance. It was a magnificent place, and soon after we were seated we heard the strains of a real hand. We glanced at the program to get its name. It read, “Music by Big Bad Bill's Band." The name did not mean a thing at the time, but it certainly did when we discovered that the leader and manager of the orchestra was my old classmate, Bill Memolo. I was glad to know that Bill finally realized his one big ambition. In talking over old times with Bill that night he advised me that he recently heard from Henning, who was now practicing in Harrisburg and was doing very nicely.
The next day we hopped off for Atlantic City to get a little rest before starting for home. It was around noon when we started down the Boardwralk for a little stroll. As we passed Childs' restaurant 1 saw a man literally stoop out of the doorway. I felt certain it could he but one man, and when I dashed up to meet him my decision was verified. It was George Snell, with a charming young lady whom he introduced as a patient. The same George at the same tricks, and the attractiveness of his patients had not fallen off a hit.
On proceeding down the boardwalk after our very pleasant chat, we were surprised to see Averbach, Berry, Morris, Oxmon, Winheld and Zimmerman lined up against the railing showing a great deal of interest in the “passing styles.” They informed us that they had been attending a convention at the Ambassador Hotel the day before and that Abe Freedman had given them, at that time, a demonstration showing the correct technique for administering nitrous oxide. It was a success, even if the patient passed the “fourth stage."
They asked us if we were going to stay over to see Musitano handle his mitts on the Million Dollar Pier the next evening. We were glad to hear that “Mussey” was making a success of his fistic career.
As it was growing late we decided to take our plane to a garage for an overhauling preparatory to our return journey. Upon entering a garage we were met by one whose face showed no mark of care or worry and whose shock of wavy hair was still black and unrufiled. I could scarcely believe my eyes. Our own “Mox " Hill, who had entered this work after a short struggle to practice purely ethical dentistry, which had been in vain. Still he was a good mechanic, for in a short time we were speeding over New Jersey.
Dusk was upon us when, from our panoramic viewpoint, we noticed many lights amid the scrub pines of New Jersey. We realized at once that this was the now world-famous Silver Lake Inn. Our appetites were again brought to life, so we descended and noticed immediately that something unusual was occurring. Upon entering we were met by a dignified personage, who was no other than our old friend “Porky" Flynn, who was now head waiter of this resort.
He informed us that the extreme popularity of this well-known rendezvous was
Payc One Hundred and Tendue to the efficient management of Sam Roberts, who always had shown a preference for road houses. He told us that we were indeed running in luck, as there was at the present time a wedding reception in progress of a well-known Philadelphia exodontist. whom 1 may recognize.
Upon entering the reception room I nearly passed into a state'of coma, for the groom was no other than Jack Walgran. After the round of introductions he hauled me to one side, where I was soon to receive another shock when I learned that this was his fourth venture into matrimony. However, it was evident that his ventures in dentistry had been more successful, as he now had four branch offices, with Drs. Brower, Dinsmorc, Smolczynski and DuBois as their head operators.
It was rather late when we again arrived in Philadelphia. The next day we decided to inspect the work of Ed Sullivan, who was now building a much larger bridge than those built at P. I). C. In fact, lie had had such success at bridge work that he was now constructing one over the Delaware River.
He told us that Sulinan. Elfman and Harris were now interested in a new movement similar to “preventive dentistry.” and were making a great success along that line. He also added that Lineweber had received a charter to organize another dental school in Philadelphia in order to realize his ambition of becoming a "dean.”
The next day we started on our homeward journey. We had not gone far when I noticed that we had engine trouble, and before I could think we were dropping through space. The earth came rushing up to meet us and we landed with a sickening thud.
I doubted that I was still alive until I saw I)r. Fauglit leaving the lecture room and realized that Hepler had bumped the arm upon which I was resting my head, ending a dream that had been far more pleasant, even though less beneficial, than the lecture I had missed.

Page One Hundred and ElevenHow to Act in the Infirmary
Upon entering clinic, push every one who is in your way to one side.
Talk with a very loud voice so as to show your patient who is in authority.
Do not use waste containers—the Iloor is more convenient with much less exertion.
If your gown is soiled, proceed to laboratory on third floor and spread plaster over dirty areas.
If in the act of applying iodine a little should besmirch the linen towels, always add more for homogeneity.
Please do not remove your hat.
To be considered a savant, enter smoking a cigarette. It will brace your fatigued nerves.
Always reprimand Miss Gibson -she will give you better service.
Before taking a culture of root canal, remove old dressing and fill canal with phenol.
Swear at the demonstrators—they can do nothing more than demerit you fifty-gold points and suspend you two weeks from the infirmary.
Never oil your engine because the squeaks resemble the birds of spring.
Leave your cabinet drawer open—it is much easier to see the contents thereof.
If the gold does not cover the margins, use a stone.
Page One Hundred and TwelveThe Angelas
“Dong!" “Dong!” “Dong!”
The shades of twilight arc falling on the infirmary. The last pel let of gold has been pounded into place. Sighs of relief are heard as the rubber dams are removed from the wearied patients. The students hurry and scramble in the direction of the lockers. The otherwise methodical operations taking place give way to a sea of unorganized movement.
What is this charmed sweetness whose very soul speaks but to command? And whence cometh such royal notes? Silently all day long it hangs in the cage, surrounded by platinum, gold, silver and other precious materials. Avoided, respected until the psychological moment, when stealthily two silent men move toward it. Their faces are drawn and taut, their fixed eyes speak of the great event, their shoulders stoop with the weight of responsibility of so monstrous an undertaking, and as the seconds of time move slowly by they advance as in a dream, nearer the “holy of holies.” The greater of the two stands erect, assuming the position of a soldier when “retreat" is sounded and the flag lowered. The other walks swiftly and silently into position, takes the rubber mallet in hand, delicately steadying the long bronze piece, and, with careful aim. strikes the blow that sends the thunder of the heavens through the halls. The mallet recoils gracefully in the hands of such a master. The silent chief smiles triumphantly as the successful blow is struck.

A few of the ambitious Seniors are at work on the floor, while those who are back are getting acclimated before they begin their work.
A series of lectures were started today, all information concerning the school year was handed to us, and it seems as though the “profs’' all use the same sentence: “And unless you do this, drastic action will be taken."

Robison tries to separate a flask by brutal force.
For once Rob Rubinstein did not praise a gold filling he put in; it must have been terrible.
It sure is funny how some men disagree over such a little thing as the use of a stone. That is what Ventura and Curry did today. Curry claims a stone makes the tooth fit the filling.

Payc One Hundred and SixteenDental Statistics
TATISTICS and dental ideas are usually said to he incompatible, but after much encouragement here is what the statistician turned over to us. These figures were compiled by the aid of our professors and their assistants.
The graduating class of this year, numbering 97 students, each requiring 1050 points for the final two years work on the infirmary floor, inserted a grand total of 20,370 perfect fillings. Of these 7177 were of gold, 8012 were of amalgam and 4611 were of silicate. The gold inserted in fillings alone totaled 6 pounds 10 ounces. In proving the ductility of this valuable metal in dentistry, if it were drawn into a wire the width of a hair it would reach around the world eighteen times believing the world to be 25,000 miles in circumference. Or this amount of metal would resurface the dome of the national capital 1 12 times and there would still remain enough for display windows. There were so many amalgam fillings inserted that if placed in any one receptacle it would require three strong men to lift same.
If the student cases were placed one upon the other the pile would tower over our building to the extent of 10 feet.
If the amount of steel used to make the instrumental equipment of all the students (each requiring 150 or more) was used to make locomotives, it would completely build two. At this time it would be impossible to estimate the amount of microbes on these instruments for students, and statisticians never estimate.
There were 95 bridges constructed, replacing a total of 365 lost teeth.
From the extraction room came the report of 1876 successfully extracted teeth without pain. Extraction necessitates prosthodontia. and we find 582 dentures (three of these were made over due to inharmonious patients) being constructed by this industrious class. For these plates 4656 false teeth were required and 1 pounds of rubber used in their vulcanization.
For treatment of all branches of the dental profession. 33,587 patients visited the infirmary in our Senior year.
The X-ray room produced 3482 diagnosed films.
If my readers will bear with me for just a moment longer, I would like to inform you that during our four years, the old stand outside changed hands three times, each year dispensing 4872 hot dogs, 1753 fish cakes and 18.102 Dixie cups, while S. S. White's steps were replaced twice and our campus dispensers were increased by Climax and L. I). Caulk Depot for the service of the student.
Page One Hundred and Sex'enleenAthletics
N consideration of the fact that until 1925 athletics in general at Temple University were almost negligible in importance, their present standing in the world of intercollegiate sports, due wholly to the performances of the various teams during the past season, shows that Temple has at least won the recognition she deserves. Much credit in this achievement must be given to Dr. Carlton N. Russell, faculty supervisor of athletics, whose untiring efforts in her behalf have placed Temple in the position she now holds. The students, past and present, must not be forgotten in the good work which they have done, many of them against overwhelming odds, for their Alma Mater.
The season of 1925 saw the debut of the Temple University football team into a sphere of intercollegiate football which it had never attained before. Under the tutelage of iieinie” Miller, former backfield star of the University of Pennsylvania, and all American halfback for two years, the team showed remarkable improvement over the teams of the preceding years. Even against colleges whose athletic prowess has been recognized in the highest intercollegiate circles, the wearers of the Cherry and White showed supreme courage and remarkable strength.
During the past season Temple played eight games, winning six and losing one.
Undoubtedly in setting a precedent by establishing a training camp in the Pocono Mountains for the two weeks preceding the opening of school, “Heinie’’ showed rare judgment. His players, greatly benefiting by this training, were in the pink of condition from the start of the season. Falvello, Frank, Memelo and Harron were the outstanding players on the varsity representing the dental school. Falvello at center was a menace to the opposing team at all times. Memelo at guard was a stone wall on the defense and a tiger on the offense. At end, Frank, due to his speed in getting down under punts and his ability to supply interference for the ball carrier, proved a threat in every game he was in. Harron also showed up well at end. Robert Click, due to his able management of the team and his arrangement of the schedule, deserves much of the credit for a very successful season.
The varsity basketball team, under the able coaching of “Sam” Dienes, had their usual successful season.
It is in this sport that the dental department takes a more active interest than any other school of the University. Six of the ten members of the varsity squad were from the dental school—Ben Shair at guard, Jepson at center, and Simms at forward were the mainstays of the team, while Wolfgang, Herron, Colonaski and Uowell
Page One Hundred and Nineteenproved capable substitutes and willing workers when called upon by Coach Dienes to defend the Cherry and White.
The dental school also had their own basketball team, and under the capable management of Thomas Joshua Mras repeated their attainment of the previous year, winning the City College Championship by defeating such strong teams as the Physical Eds., Jefferson, Medical College, P. C. P., and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy. Wolfgang, Gus Lowell, Grabarek and Harron showed up well for the ‘■Dents” and received their letters in this sport.
Baseball is a sport which is becoming stronger every year at Temple. With a nucleus of stars and letter men such as Chapman, Simms, Unger, Troutwein, Jepson. Welham, Hock, Colonaski and Stakowski, this year is expected to be the biggest in the history of the sport at this school. T. J. Harron, of the dental school, has been elected manager of the team and will guide it through the season.
The following schedule has been arranged by the Athletic Council: March 30,
Georgetown; March 31, Quantico Marines; April 1, Randolph-Macon; April 9, Dickinson; April 10, Lafayette; April 12, Mt. St. Mary’s; April 11. P. M. C.; April 16, Schuylkill: April 17.

In the spring practice preceding the annual Southern trip several of the old men and some newcomers have been showing up exceptionally well. ‘“Big Bill" Vernon, the star pitcher of the 1925 squad, is beginning to hit his old-time stride and is expected to turn in many victories for the Cherry and White. Troutwein, another veteran from last year, has been playing an excellent game on the keystone sack, and along with his good work with the bat will in all probability aid the team materially in the contests to come. Nedswicki, a newcomer on the mound, has been giving some brilliant exhibitions and great things are expected from him. Another newcomer is Zancosky, who is giving great promise of becoming a first rate right fielder.
All in all the Owls show a very strong combination and are expected to make a very fine showing against their opponents in the games to come.
The year 1925 probably saw the best quarter-mile relay team that the dental school ever had. Composed of Captain Lasky, Frank Ellison and Lange, the team had no trouble whatever in capturing the City College Championship in the Penn Relays, defeating the teams representing the Philadelphia Colleges of Optometry. Osteopathy and Science, and the Textile School by wide margins.
Page One Hundred and TwentyThe relay team of the university, composed of three of the “Dents" mentioned above, also made out well, taking second place in their class, losing to Dickinson College by a small margin. The varsity team as a whole made a very good showing by winning three of the four dual meets, defeating Lrsinus, F. M. and Schuylkill, and losing to Georgetown.
This year sees the return of many of the stars of the previous year, namely, Crcsse, who has been elected captain; Frank Ellison, Lange and Bonavitacola, along with several newcomers who have been showing up very well in the indoor practice all winter. These men will take care of the century, 220 and quarter, while some of the new men will take the distance runs. Among the best to show up so far are Schoph and Wolf in the mile and half mile; Cranford and Young in the hurdles, and Meister ami Druinm in the shot-put and javelin.
The following schedule has been arranged by the coach, Mr. Barron, who will be remembered as a former Penn State College star, and great things are expected of the team.
April 23 Dental Team, Penn Relays.
April 2-1 Varsity, Penn Relays.
April 30 St. Joseph's, home.
May 8 Villanova, at Villanova.
May 15—Franklin and Marshall, at Lancaster.
May 22—Schuylkill, at Reading.
May 26—C. C. N. Y., at New York.
An innovation in the sport world of Temple is the Field Day to be held at the new athletic field on April 30. This is to be made an annual event at Temple and will be one of the biggest athletic events at the university. There will be a dual track meet and a baseball game. This day will officially open the outdoor athletic season. This year probably the biggest event of the day will be the ground-breaking for the new clubhouse to be erected on this site, which will be for the use of the various athletic teams while at the field.
As has been stated before, everything points to a great future for athletics at Temple. The twelve-acre athletic field is rapidly being developed. It has been leveled off. a diamond laid out, grass planted, and a quarter-mile cinder track with a 220-yard straightaway has just been completed. In the fall it is expected that a trackhouse will be established, where all the athletes may be kept in proper training by means of regular hours and a training table.
Let us hope that in the near future Temple will be playing the leading teams of the country, and that we may come back to see our Alma Mater defeating its rival from across the Schuylkill. With this hope, dear Temple, the Class of '26 wishes you every success in the athletic world.

Page One Hundred and Twenty-fivePsi Omega
A detailed history of Psi Omega which would include its extent and progress would he far too tiresome to our readers, as would also he a description of the tribulations and hilarious experiences of Eta Chapter. So hurry through this part and we will only linger long enough to state that the active chapters of Psi Omega, thirty-eight in all. extend from San Francisco to Boston, and from Dallas to Montreal, while the Alumni Chapters, numbering fifty-one, are scattered far and near all over the civilized world.
During our infant days at the Alma Mater we became acquainted with Eta, then located at 1728 Spring Garden street. As a work of art that edifice was never seen to grace the cover page of any architectural magazine, hut surely the loyalty of those few who called it “home” was great enough to overlook its follies and its faults, for as near as we can remember, hack through the mists of these four long years, if was the pride and joy and nucleus of some wonderful times.
As we moved up the ladder, one step each year, so we carried Eta with us, and our Sophomore year found quite an improvement in our home at 631 North Twentieth street. We dared not go any direction hut forward after that, and by progressing to 2038 Ml. Vernon street in our Junior year we finally reached the peak of our career in May of 1925, when we moved into our present location at 2216 Green street. Some time in the dim past some kind-hearted builder must have planned this house for just such parties as Psi Omega enjoys, and we have put it to the extreme test during the past year.
Our many enjoyable house parties are far too numerous to mention, but the highest spots were reached at the Halloween and Christmas dances. With the house beautifully and appropriately decorated for each occasion, the break of day found many weary but happy travelers wending their way homeward. However, the culminating event of the social season was our annual spring dinner dance, held at the Penn A. C. on April 15. Everybody arrived on their good behavior, but the gorgeous repast had not ended before the shell had been broken and we found that the natural spirit of sociability refused to make way for stiff formality at any Psi Omega function.
We have striven to garner a few celebrities for display purposes to visitors, and at present we boast of two class presidents, two society presidents, one track star, two football varsity men. football manager and baseball manager.
All in all we are pleased with our four years of mingled labor and fun, and in the years to come, be they four or forty, we will never cease to cherish the recollections of our Psi Omega days.

Alph a Omega Theta-Ramach Chapter
Alpha Omega dates its entrance into the ranks of national fraternities back to 1906. In 1921 the fraternity, by the installation of a chapter at the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Toronto, Canada, took an international aspect. The Theta-Ramach Chapter of Alpha Omega, and of the Philadelphia Dental College, was installed in 191 1. At present there are twenty-one undergraduate chapters, situated as far West as Los Angeles. Calif.; as far North as Toronto, Canada, and as far South as Louisville, Ky. Ten active Alumni clubs, embracing 1500 members, bring home the thought of the tremendous strength of Alpha Omega.
Theta-Ramach has the proud distinction of owning its home, which is only a few doors from the school. The chapter has always been noted for the manner in which its members have upheld the fine traditions of P. D. C., scholastically and athletically.
The official publication of the Fraternity is the Alpha Omegan. issued quarterly.
Page One Hundred and Twenty-nineSigma Epsilon Delta
The Delta Chapter of the Sigma Epsilon Della Fraternity is celebrating the third year of its existence at the Temple Dental School. This fraternity had its origin in New York City twenty-six years ago, and girded by the policy of quality, not quantity, it has expanded into four chapters, the last of which, we are proud to add, being established at Temple University.
This year marks an epoch in our growth, because, for the first time, we have men in the graduating class, seven in number. Four of these graduates are members of the I. N. Broomell Society, the scholastic honorary society of the dental college.
In our ranks we have some of the most active men in Temple University. We have had captains on the varsity basketball and track teams, a member on the football team, a coach and member of the swimming team, a man on the tennis squad, a cheer leader, a president of a class, a president of the Avukah, and three men in the Honorary Blue Key Society. In the sports and activities about the dental school we have also played a prominent part.
Besides our athletic achievements we have been keenly interested along intllectual lines. We have fostered a Bohemian Club for the study, discussion and interpretation of the fine arts.
In our work we have been earnest, in our endeavors fortunate, and in our brotherhood happy. But. above all, we are “Fratres per Omnia."

Tell me not. 0 ye who slumbers.
That your points are away behind;
If you joined the Dixie’s numbers.
Seven hundred would be thine.
Points are scarce, points are few.
But seven hundred you’ll attain.
One thing only you must do,
Down the stairs to Dixie Lane.
Not for pleasure, no, nor fun.
Did we form the Dixie Band.
No, 'twas indeed begun
To extend the helping hand.
Work is hard, time is fleeting,
So why be slow to pay?
If your heart is quickly beating.
Buy three Dixies every day.
Let us then he up and treating.
Dixies cool the warmest man;
Keep them busy, keep them eating,

FITNESS OF THINGS
OH KNOW full well that the victories of your Alma Mater on the field of athletics have been possible only because of the fitness of your teams.
This involved the right kind of men, thorough schooling of these men by competent coaches, proper physical training, and the best possible equipment.
In your college studies you have received from competent teachers that mental coaching which will fit you for the great contest of life.
The results of your dental training in the practice of your profession will depend much on the excellence of your mechanical equipment.
Superior workmanship requires and demands superior tools and materials. No competent artisan will waste his time and energy on inferior equipment. Much more essential is it that the dentist, whose profession has to do with the healing art, be properly equipped.
Since 1844 The House of White has studied the needs of the dental profession. Our aim has been and always will be to aid in the betterment of dentistry by supplying only the best in dental supplies and equipment for the profession.
You are assured when using a product bearing the Trade $$ Mark that you are employing the best, and that you are equipped to win.
