Henry was never a fellow to let anxiety obstruct his good work, whatever was his assignment, it was always consutnaied. We hope it shall always be that way. Henry never came too early for any good seat, he could sit in front, because he was quite con fidenl. He awuys aided the needy and was a fine student and friend. “Heinrich” os his pal Marly named him was as "neat as a pin” and the latter quality showed equally as well in his work.

Besides bring a native of New Jersey, a Benedict, ami a “Proud Papa", “Moe“ i' also considered an all ’round damn good fellow, a fact which our four years of association has proven. Modest, quiet, unassuming, “Moe” is certainly pointing toward the heights which are rightfully his. Nothing can stop him hut the Jersey Boards and lie isn't worrying about that. In fact, “Moe” never worries, his motto being “Never trouble trouble, till trouble troubles you”. Well. “Moe”, knock those Jersey Boards for a loop then show u what you can do.

Rube always puzzled us with his mustache: it seemed to appear and disappear so often. However, we feel sure that he will he able to raise one that will help add to his professional dignity.
Rube proved himself quite a sample collector and he could be seen clipping coupons from many magazines during the lecture'. W e often wonder what he is going to do with all his samples.
Working in the postoffice at night and attending school during the day was part of his routine. But working his way through school gave him a serious outlook on life and he performed his work in the right spirit. We wish him a happy future in dentistry.

“Mamie” was class sweetheart and the boys never went to a party unless she went. Her blond hair and blue eyes were our pride. And maybe she couldn't plug a foil filling—and now. The demonstrators would all race to her chair to pass her work off. Ventura wanted to make her a member of the “squash club" but it seems that popular opinion was against this. W’e fooled Ventura though, we made him honorary president.
“Mamie” i going to specialize in eare of children’s teeth and we know that she will make a success of it. We hope the gods are kind ... so long.

Great were the 'lories Kappy told ns and we were inclined to believe them—until we began to know him better. With his “line” he’ll be a surreRS in any field.
Kappy usually started every year with n bang and in bis senior year was the first to use the new equipment on tile clinic tloor. lie ;.Iso became famous with his easting process for telescopic crowns. This saved us many hours of drudgery and worry.

Thi' is what made him foremost in many of our activities. As “birds of a feather Hock together” so did our Marlin and hi pal “Heinrich” monopolize one another. Rarely could you see one without hearing the call of the other. Marty’s humour especially that at our smokers made him quite noted and popular throughout the school.

Not really a sand snipe but hailing from parts north, namely Paterson. He is by no means the youngest in the class. This fact is quite evident by his “early piety", or shall we say, his alopecia-like tendencies. Hither of these will suffice, hut to be more clearly expressed we call it plain baldness.
His wide range of experience has made him quite an accomplished individual. He plays a sax or rides a motorcycle with equal skill. His ability as an entertainer has kept the class in stitches for four years. It ha-been a pleasure to have “Vic" with us and wc arc sure of a bright future for him.

If you ever wanted to find Kasper B., Sammy knew where lie was or ire versa. They were as inseparable as a plaster impression and model. We often wonder what keeps these two together knowing each other as intimately as they do.

BENJAMIN A. COHEN Temple University Helpful Henry should have been Ben’s nickname for a seat was always reserved for him, especially during the exams. Many fellows depended upon the bubbling over knowledge that Ben gathered before an exam, and in turn they would gather around him in order to make sure of passing.
Ben was al-o a crown ami bridge expert for almost all the bridge work was done by him. We know more than one student who depended upon his digital dexterity to solder bridges and plates. It seems Ben was never too busy to lie lending a helping hand to some less fortunate student.
Our first glimpse of Ben during his first year with us proved lie wa- sort of shy on femmes—but you should see him now «iner lie’s been stepping out.

Red's, our congenial borrower on the floor, hails from Lancaster. When asked how the appellation of “Red's" happened, he tells us he used to have red hair. We believe the handsome mustache to be the cause. To “Red’s" belongs the credit for the lack of depletion in the population of Margate. For four summers he pulled them out of the briny in the capacity of life guard and captain of the beach patrol. hen not engaged in life saving he would always be the center of a bevy of girls. Tough life. We know you will be successful and here’s our best wishes.
Freddy has walked off with honors in Anatomy and he has set a standard for work-man-hip which is pretty hard to keep up with. SlrRing to do better than anyone else, is his weakness. We -hould all be endowed with such short comings. A smile, a greet-ing and then no more. Fading from view around the corner of the prosthetic lab. or crown and bridge.

Big, jovial “Tiny"—a good fellow and a line operator. No need to say that he is well liked by his classmates for his disposition is always a bright one. Such a name upholds Abott’s reputation for picking the hot ones. We are sure though that “Tiny’s" success won’t he a small one.

was seldom heard, yet at times when paths cross, we see him always coming out in the sunshine smiling. It i' always a helping “hello ' or “how's things” from him that made us like him.
At first, he impresses you as being a hit serious and perhaps this is due to his intensive efforts on the floor.

But hi happy go lucky attitude and smiling physiognomy was in evidence everywhere. Mike was always ready to give advice and how he managed to obtain so many gold points, and how to plug gold.
That professional looking mustarhe ha been the envy of many an aspiring senior, too.
Without faltering in his footsteps Mike always emerged on the sunny side of all obstacles and detriments which threatened to impede hi- progress. Lots of luck, pal— we are sure of your success.

History of the Class of 1931
In the fall of 1927. we entered Philadelphia Dental College of Temple University to pursue our chosen study. As Freshmen, it seemed as though we were forever being shunted about from the cellar to attic for dissection or what not. At any rate, we were nearly lost in the haze of things. The terms in vogue in the Anatomy course, we could not understand, and the chemistry was also appalling.—so much so that those eight o'clock classes were very poorly attended, sometimes due to the struggle with our new terms of our courses. It seemed as though as soon as we entered the Dental School, all of the imaginable and unimaginable obstacles flew up to stare us in the face.
George Sands was elected our Freshman Class President, to guide us through that eventful and formula!ive year of ours, lie was very successful as the class leader, and showed hi- ability «o handle our problems as they came up for discussion.
By much struggle and plugging, we reached the half-way mark of that first year. And then the Mid-Year Exams! Speaking of petrification, we were all good examples of it. especially when an unannounced exam, would he thrown at us. By that time, wc thought that perhaps we would know enough to pass so as to remain in Dental School for at least a little longer. After the exams, wc were given a chance to breathe and collect ourselves for the rest of the year.
Then the rush to finish up our Prosthetic technic work, and Operative technic. We still recall those blisters on our hands from making those instruments. Easter vacation and we all had good intentions to study over the holiday, and get ahead of the mob by knowing a little something. We knew very little afterwards, but then the fireworks started for we studied as we had never studied before to get through the final exams and then thought we had achieved something because we were Sophomores.
As Sophomores, of course we considered ourselves very clever to have attained such a goal. Our schedule geemed full, with plenty to do in school and out. and we weren't disappointed in thisbelief. As second year men, we encountered one of the hardest years that could be handed out to a group of students. But we gained by it in many ways. Our territory gained, as we were now working all the way across the street in the metallurgy laboratory and in the back of one building in the Physical Chemistry Laboratory. So as our scope of things in general was widened, we tried to broaden our knowledge of things as well. We took a special course at night in the whys and wherefores of one certain course we were exposed to that year. Needless to say it was successful, that is, the course was- successful.
By this time, we had really accustomed ourselves to the routine around the School and knew more of how to study and what to study, and when. In the spring, we had our usual political scrap, with Cliff Lenahan controlling the party in power and that party stowed away a victory for Joe Mustovoy despite all efforts of the opposition, in which the writer had quite a part. But to no avail.
Exams were soon upon us to see if we could qualify for the Junior Class. Despite many headaches, the majority of us got by safely, and we suffered few casualties in the Class. It might be pointed out that some of our Classmates figured prominently in the sports of the School. In football, we had Joe Mustovoy as Varsity quarterback in ’27 and ’28, and during the past season, he helped to coach the Freshman eleven. At present, he can give a mighty fine talk on partial dentures. In track, George “Scotty” Sands represented our runners on the P.D.C. relay team at the LT. of P. relay carnival in !28. In ’29, he managed the team that ran, and for the past two years, “Scotty” Sands has been the coach. In boxing, too, wo had an able representative in Eddie Cuden of ’31. He was one of the best light weights in intercollegiate boxing and in ’29 was Captain of the Owl mitmen. Thus we have been well represented in sports during our period in the Dental School.
The Partial State Boards for Pennsylvania were our next big hurdle. We all came through one hundred per cent in that battle, which is a splendid record for the School and one of which we can be proud as a Class.Junior year and our first big thrill—to go on the Clinic floor and operate and appear very worldly wise and all that sort of thing. That is, we felt that way until we were “squelched" a few times by sarcastic remarks from—well you know what I mean. At any rate, we enjoyed our experiences working in the Clinic in the various departments. At last we felt that we were on the road to being real dentists. One never feels so small as when he is “taken over" by a demonstrator before a patient. But we viewed all such incidents philosophically and tried to believe that they were all for our own good and benefit. When our patients asked n question ami said “Doctor”—well—it wasn’t any wonder that we felt important and could forget the “squelched” feeling. Naturally we had great difficulty in getting our instruments arranged on the bracket in their proper order, but after a few demerits our lesson along this line was well learned. We did not have as much studying to do ns in previous years, for which we were all duly thankful.
Joe Mustovoy was Class President and made a good job of it. There was harmony in the Class—as much as possible in such an organization—and a good feeling between the faculty and the Class as a unit. The mid-year had us worried; after the result were out, and there was quite a group, in fact most of the Class, members of the “60 Club”, as a result of one of our examinations. However, in spite of that fact, everything went smoothly, even the daily scramble for chairs in the Clinic. Points were sought, technic work cleared up, and everyone got set for the big drive of final examinations.
These were real. too. After we finished, the consensus of opinion was that we all hoped for the best. At the close of the year, we all felt as we imagined a dash man would feel at the end of a five mile run.
During the summer, between our Junior and Senior years, we received a terrible blow in the news that Boyd K. Kear, our Classmate had been killed in an auto accident. We were all stunned to learn of this, and it was hard to believe that one of us had been taken from us by the hand of Fate. We realized only too wellthat “To-day cannot tell what to-morrow will bring forth". Boyd has been greatly missed by his classmates ami friends, and his death is one of those tilings that we cannot understand.
We have now entered that select group we have always looked up to—the Senior Class. Many of the boys returned on September 15th and started right in to get the work of the last lap well under way before the rush of things started. Cliff Lenahan was elected President of the Class for the final year, and carried it well. So well, in fact, that now he has such nonchalance that he requested a professor to stop lecturing before the hour was up lie-cause the Class had matters of importance to discuss!
Everything that we do this year seems preparatory to that great event the receiving of our degrees, and then—who knows? Senior year is really the best year of all for we are treated differently hv the men in charge. There are many little things that we ure allowed to do as Seniors that otherwise could not have been attempted. Each member of the Class seems to take his work seriously and puts everything into it that he possibly can, in order to bring forth the best results.
An important event this year was our Class Dance. It was easily the best dance that we had during our four years in P. D. C. The entire aspect of the affair was far better than previous efforts had been. Our Record, too. is to he the best ever, so that we will have a hook that we can look hack on with a pride that will give us a peculiarly comfortable feeling, while we reminisce about our College clays.
Vie are on the final turn, with the goal just ahead, and our future still an unknown quantity. Time alone will tell how many of us will become famous or well-known practitioners in our community. But we know that we shall always give to the public that service which they desire, to the very best of our ability.
In closing, we hope that you have liked our efforts in the History of the Class of ‘31. If not—well, it was an honest effort. Best of luck and good wishes to all of you for the future.

HERE is little room in which to write anything new on such an ancient title. But let us turn over the historical pages oi’ Dentistry, and see what can he found buried and perhaps forgotten. It will have the force in its resurrection as of a new thought. Let us start by asking the question. Why Operative Dentistry?
'l'he history of dentistry must in its earlier stages be traced to Medicine and Surgery. Evidence of dentistry in Egypt. 3700 B. C., has been found, and the Egyptians were at that date the surgeons of the then known world. Dental work bore only evidence of cutting and the placing of a restoring medium in natural teeth. It was similar to their surgery, though bloodless. Essentially operative and in no wise medicinal, they exhibited no prosthetics, though the people of Phoenicia, with whom they extensively traded, seemed well versed in prosthetics. It is logical thus too suppose Operative Dentistry acquired its name and significance. Today it is the excuse for our existence, but widened in its meaning and practice, enlarged from the simple Egyptian procedure and brought to a science, including a knowledge of the noble metals, alloys, cements and porcelain. I suppose it is not a far cry to include root filling, Exodontia. Orthodontia, Radiology. Crown and Bridge work, and a large medical side for the relief of attendant suffering. The fixing of artificial teeth seems to he outside the category, and becoming more and more a mechanical pursuit.
You of the Class of 1930-‘31 find all this very interesting, but I know that you would like me to tell you something of what your four years of study in the Philadelphia Dental College should mean to you in your lives.

What is the operative department trying to put across? 1 will answer, just this:—Gentleness, Cleverness, and “The Graces". -“Manners, ddrcss and Dress.” The incarnation of these into your personality. ithout them yon cannot succeed. They mean more than all the other matter we have endeavored to give you: nevertheless the details of Operative Dentistry are important. and the object has been to emphasize constantly:
First. Cleanliness, as paramount before and during operating.
Second. The normal position of the tooth must be secured, and sufficient separation,—the latter being necessary to restore lost tissue and to maintain the position secured, for these insure the future proper functioning of the organ.
Third. That failure is often due to dull instruments.
Fourth. Great care in the preparation of all margins. Failure of the service being mostly due to the neglect of this vital requirement.
Fifth. The burnishing of the restoration to harden the surface.
Every effort has been made to give equal training in the use of all materials, and to discourage the student advocating the use of such materials as make dentistry easy, though recognizing the great need of painless dentistry, keeping ever in mind the grand idea of Operative Dentistry—the prevention and arrest of decay and the salvation of teeth.

ROW N and Bridge is systematically studied during the second, third
and fourth years, the didactic and technical training being so arranged that it conforms to student need each term.
In work of such an exacting nature it is imperative that students appreciate most fully the need for accuracy in minute detail—to this end fundamentals are stressed throughout each term. Basic principles are thoroughly explained.
Technic work is so arranged that it will fit into such a scheme of things and further in degree the students appreciation of fundamentals as applied to tooth preparation. The construction and adaptation of attachments particularly. The construction of artificial tooth crowns. Polities and Bridgework both stationary and replaceable nature are systematically taught in progressive order.
Instruction is furthermore so arranged that the student will most keenly appreciate the necessity for detailed accuracy in tooth morphology and occlusion generally and we aim to correlate such other studies as anatomy, physiology, art. mechanics and hygiene in order that the restorations may he of phvsico-therapeutic value as well as of cosmetic and functional satisfaction to ourselves and our patients.
In practical work upon the infirmary floor particular attention is given to the selection of cases suitable for various types of crowns and bridges. A good deal of instruction is afforded the students in the particular case being demonstrated and analytically discussed by the professor from time to time before groups of students.
The instructors are full time men and their supervision and advice is constantly before the student throughout the entire college year.

The orthodontic department has progressed admirably following llu increased facilities that have been recently provided l the school authorities.
Children paitients attend in unlimited numbers so that we can select the most favorable cases for demonstrations and treatment.
By arrangement with the Board of Public Education pupils may obtain excuses from school attendance by presenting to their teachers a certificate of treatment conducted by the Department of Orthodontia and in this way the clinic is kept busy six mornings per week, children having specified hours for appointments.
All practical work is done by the graduate operators, dental students assisting and acting as observers.
The technic work ami didactic course is so arranged that the graduate from the institution will have a broad basic knowledge of the important specialty of dentistry—so that he will he able to carry out treatment of simple nature, advise parents of deviations in growth and development in oral structure of their children and practise dentistry for the young from the preventive standpoint.
To the graduating class I would say in closing—remember the high ideals always associated with your profession. Conduct yourselves at all times in a manner that will reflect a glorious progress. Continue your studies and constantly improve your technique in all particulars, that you may obtain the happiness that goes with alleviation of human suffering and prevention of disease and deformity.
With best wishes to all.

■ T is more or less problematical whether the dental student at any period during his pre-graduate career will profit by advice when certain features, hearing directly on his future, are brought to his attention, no matter how well it may he directed.
At the time of his graduation any such admonition will certainly fall on sterile ground if the individual has not been disposed to regard, with sufficient importance, the fundamentals which have been handed to him in the form of a more or less pre-digested pabulum during his college days. It will, therefore, result in the young practitioner making serious mistakes and blunders in the beginning of his career that will certainly retard his progress in building up a practice, before lie wakes up to tin fact that much of his time, and more of his opportunities, have been lost because his mental attitude toward his profession was warped throughout the four years devoted to laying the foundation. Much of this is due to his association with those who have the idea that the practice of dentistry is an easy way to make a lot of money, and also, to those whose tendencies are toward the charlatan. We may even begin to analyze the situation in his prescribed pre-dental instruction which, in the mind of the writer, should determine his fitness, mental attitude and otherwise, before he is allowed to matriculate in any dental school.
Dentistry is a profession which demands the closest attention to details, ami a particularly conscientious attitude toward all its branches. All of our operations are in an environment that is in some way unfavorable to the satisfactory completion of the service to be rendered and this holds true whether such service he in the prosthetic or operative field. All dental operations must he commenced and finished in a sequence of events, every detail of which must be thoroughly and well carried out so that in the end the operator and the patient, may feel that they are comfortable and safe for a reasonable length of time.
In the prosthetic field, more than in the operative branch, this is true, for in that department, where the sequence is entirely creative: in direct proportion to the care devoted to the details of the technical construction, the finished piece will either take care of itself or it will he a failure. Not the least important feature of this sequence is the foundation laid in the preparatory work done at the chair by the one who comes in direct contact with the patient. He is the directing engineer who is to guide the work, and make the artistic touches that only-lie can make. He is the one to select and adapt the engineering principles involved. It is only necessary to look about us to discover the reason for so many failures, and so many prosthetic atrocities. It is only necessary to consider the
Page One Hundred Sixdeatmsthy
lack of knowledge, and the limited experience shown by the average commercial laboratory, and then add to this state of affairs the lack of knowledge, and ihe indifference of the average practitioner to see why prosthetic dentistry of today is of much lower grade than that of twenty-five years ago. In those days every dentist did more or less work in his laboratory, and knew the branch well enough to completely direct others. Many had a laboratory man, or technical assistant to relieve them of the details which consumed time; the case, however, was never lost sight of for a minute during its construction and he was resourceful enough to head off trouble by planning to avoid it. Today the average dentist makes no plan, and rarely marks his model. He thinks of nothing but a finished case, and his only instructions to the technician, who never sees tin patient, are verbal directions as to the shade and make of teeth he desires, together, with a very poor bite to lie used in the construction of a rubber denture which is to be finished promptly at a designated hour on a given day. e have a serious obligation to our clientele who require prosthetic service. Our duty to these people extends further than to the individual requiring it. Their relatives and friends are to lie considered. A denture is as much u failure if it is imperfect artistically as though it was not efficient when in use. Any sacrifice that is made must not he a sacrifice of function to mechanism, but rather a sacrifice, if any, of mechanism to function. Every patient has a right to a free and untrammeled musculature, and a right to demand that a reproduction of his natural organs of mastication, and restoration of his or her facial appearance be done in a way to merit ihe term artistic as well as efficient.
That the prosthetic output from a dental practitioner should be limited by the knowledge of any one conducting a commercial laboratory, no matter how skilfully and neatly the work is wrought is preposterous. Similar neglect of opportunities in other fields of endeavor would not he thought of by any one wishing success, and such a state of affairs would certainly he taken advantage of by competitors. Literally dozens of manufacturing plants have arrived at a state of perfection by excelling others in the same business, some have passed through the hands of several generations, each of which has perfected and improved the methods which have brought wealth and renown to their predecessors. While this is done the world over, the dentist is willing to blunder along with his lack of interest, ignoring fundamentals, and employing slip-shod methods that neither materially benefit the patient, nor establish for him a permanent clientele. In the vast majority of instances, both the student and the practitioner could do infinitely better work if he would.

rjp HE Henry Isaiah Dorr Research Laboratory ami Department of Dental Histo-Pathology, located on the fifth floor of the Garretson Building, 18th and Hamilton Streets, was instituted in September 1927. Dr. Henry Isaiah Dorr, himself a pioneer in the field of research, willed the sum of $50,000, for the endowment of a laboratory named after its donor. It is the finest equipped in scientific material in the country, and is justly proud of its existence.
In May 1927, when President Charles E. Beury, the late I)r. Laura H. Carnell and Dr. I. Norman Broomell. Dean of the Dental School, escorted me to the quarters set aside for his laboratory I was, for the first time, acquainted with the task that lay ahead. The quarters at that time were inhabited by the various internes of the Garretson Hospital. Facing the situation as it stood, I felt a keen sense of responsibility and determination to make the best out of the surroundings. The work included demolition, reconstruction, and complete organization, so that the department could be placed upon a working basis when classes were scheduled to begin in September. The satisfaction gained in the short period of these months was easy to comprehend. Equipment of the very latest designs was installed and as the years have rolled by the department has changed even to
1‘nge One Hundred EightTin; 1C A PEUTMl 'S
a greater degree. During the summer of 1930. the laborato was renovated. with I In installation of further equipment and research facilities, for the undergraduates and postgraduates.
Outside of departmental teaching, many items of interest in research have been undertaken. Some of these have met with success, others have not. Since 1927. the principal research work undertaken has been conducted along the lines of Dental ’‘Caries". Vincent’s Infection. Pulplcss Tooth Problems and Vitamins. Perhaps one of the most important undertakings in progress at the present time is that of Cancer Research. So far no definite results have been attained, but some important information may be at hand in the near future.
Since the first day you set eyes upon this I niversity. the obstacles of the Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years have been overcome, and. now. as Seniors you have completed your course to the satisfaction of vour teachers. As your Professor of Pathology and Therapeutics, 1 want you ;o realize that the many ups and downs you have experienced have only been the means to help you reach the goal, so admirably attained with the reward of the D.D.S.. degree.

Huge One Hundred NineSI ItfiEUY and
a last word to a graduating class, I know of no warning more appropriate than that of malignancy.
Like the poor, it is always with us, in rapidly increasing numbers. It does not. however, elicit our sympathy as does the indigent, hut on the contrary, our utmost horror and disdain. In the midst of a civilization prohahly more advanced than any previous on the globe, it has not abated one iota in the face of the most vigorous attack ever hurled at any disease. While the cause of cancer remains unknown, many of its phenomena have been carefully studied. It occurs in every climate among all mankind, both savage and civilized, in both wild and domestic animals, carnivorous and herbivorous, fishes, reptiles and even the lowly oyster. Throughout nature. the histologic picture of any definite cancer is the same.
Occasionally embryomas or teratomas are encountered in the sexual organs, ovaries ami testes. Frequently, those tumors are very malignant. They destroy, recur and form metastisis in distant organs.
Cancers usually obey some general law of growth, and that this law applies equally whether it he cancer of the internal invisible organs or vhe external visible parts. If it can be shown that cancer of any particular part of the body follows a certain sequence of events, this would be an example of the law of its growth. It was not necessary for Sir Isaac [Newton
Page One Hundred TenAXAESTHESiA
to observe tlie fall of apples from more than one tree to conceive the law of gravity.
The laboratory man who lias submerged himself in the quicksands ol his own theories has contributed largely in the destruction of many empiric cures by discrediting by scientific facts the fallacies of the quack and the enthusiasm of those who are misled by the advent of a new panacea.
The dentist is constantly examining mouths, probably more o than any other member of the healing art: hence his added responsibility to society. There is no law or code of ethics which prevents him making a thorough examination of tonsils, soft palate, larynx, etc., which places him in a position to at least suggest the advisability of seeking further oral treatment.
My last word is, enlarge your field of responsibility through some fel-lowniau so that when you have finished your professional career, the world will be better for your having lived in it. and that your life's work will not have been in vain, and lastly you will be greeted with that long awaited call—“Well done thou good and faithful servant".
Prof. C. N. Russell.

T SALUTE the Class of 1931. What shall I write on this page, that will
bring lo your miinl in years to come, happy memories of classwork in this department of Alveolo-dental Roentgenology? Let us recall our studies together when we tried to fix in the students minds some of the fundamental principles of this science, so that efficient service might lie rendered to that Public that will present itself to your office for advice. Many serious questions relating to people's health must he solved by you.
The History of Electricity is one of Romance which developed as the first acorn of knowledge was planted by the Ancient Peoples who lived along the shores of the Caspian, Black and Mediterranean Seas, on whose shores are found the petrified remains of coniferous trees, which had the property of attracting certain substances when they had been subjected lo friction and this substance was said to he amber. Whenever you travel these seas, the people will offer for sale, wonderful trinkets which are supposed to he made of amber. If you are wise, you will tear your newspaper into small shreds and rub the so-called amber on the lining of your coat, after which friction place it near the pieces of paper. If it attracts these particles, it is a genuine bit of amber, and you will withdraw from your wallet one nice, crisp dollar hill of the most wonderful country in the world ami offer it to the vendor for the chain of beads. He will sing his song of woe. telling you they are worth three or four dollars as it has taken his blind grandmother three months to string the beads. If you arc sufficiently inflexible to resist the merchant's sales talk, you will soon have the article and he will he the possessor of vour American dollar.
Many religions were founded and many wars were fought before Luigi Galvani in 1760 first produced electricity by the galvanic or chemical battery. Before that time, its only evidence was from amber or the lodestone, which has produced the magnetic needle.
Page One Hundred Tivelit
J usi 100 years before t It is wonderful elass graduated from lemple I'niversily Dental School, a discovery was made by Michael Faraday, which discovery of induced current has made possible the many instruments lor measuring, controlling ami producing power which we have today.
Man has been frightened, his habitation burned and his lilc destroyed by that evidence of “the Wrath of the Gods, as exhibited on Mount Olympus" in the clouds during a thunderstorm, but it required the initiative of Benjamin Franklin to fly a kite on the hill where our college stands. He identified the thunder with magnetism, which he was producing by chemical action. When Benjamin Franklin was sent to Europe as Ambassador of the Colonies, he knew more of electricity than any other scientist in Europe.
Please do not sell your text books, carry them home for reference, and each year buy a new one and a new medical dictionary. Carry the banner of our beloved profession ever higher, and when we who are here have passed on, step boldly in the vacant places and bravely carry on.
‘’Write on your doors the saying wise and old,
Be Bold! be Bold!" and everywhere—‘Be Bold!’
Be not too hold!" Act better the excess Than the defect, better the more than less.
Better like Hector in the field to die Than like a perfumed Paris turn and fly”.
My blessing and all good wishes to each member of the Class of 1931.

The blame lor this incogilificeiit organization can be placed indirectly upon that noted and indistinct Prof. Gingivitis who held down the chair of Oesophagostomasis at good old Liverwurst Academy. It was during the year of ’89 that the Phillies were having a batting slump; mass meetings were held in various sections of the city to discuss this serious oncoming catastrophe. It was finally decided to call upon Prof. Gingivitis to remedy ithis matter, so the immigration ban was lifted and the Prof, left his delicatessen shop in Camden to do the world some good, to serve humanity. However, fate intervened and as the Prof, reached Buttonhole Street one of Baldwin’s locomotives fell out of the sixth story window and crashed right atop the Prof’s, head. After digging for five days and five nights they came upon the esteemed Prof, drawing plans for a most modern edifice, to not serve humanity but to compete with Baldwins as revenge for the accident. In November of the same year the services of a few plasterers, plumbers, and blacksmiths were acquired and the first term of the school year was inaugurated. At that time there were no dental schools in the I'. S. but since then there have been created forty-five more schools making a grand total of forty-five dental schools listed in this country. The school occupies a dilapidated building especially designed and erected for use in a section of the city too far from the center, with a frontage of 198,821 feet and 10 mm.

To err is human, but not for students. The office of Administration is just crammed full of efficiency, but we have never seen it. They must keep it in the safe.
If your 9:00 o'clock patient calls up and says that she cannot keep her appointment you will he notified by 3:00 o'clock at the earliest so that you can send an appointment card to the wrong address. 1 his is just one of the efficiency methods.
They can post more notices in less than it takes Zoole to plug an M.O. with a cotton roll. The best stunt is to post a notice at 4:30 calling off a 4:00 o'clock lecture for that particular day because of the baseball season. The students celebrate the occasion by sending us valentines. But our valentines are not so funny for these tokens inform of pleasant holidays that can be spent in study.
And that “Stench Lab.” that is situated on the first floor is one reason why lectures go stale. By the smell that comes from there on some occasions. the students don't know whether they are in a dental school or at the gas works. As far as the students are concerned, they might prefer the latter for the more pleasant atmosphere inspired for asphyxiation.
The office lullaby is;
Thursday's lecture conies on Monday.
Tuesday's lecture comes next year.
So even if you're present
You will never be marked “here”.

Have you ever stopped to think how many curves the human arch has? Curves so gracefully parabolic that reminds one of the Shenandoah Valley in the Alps. We have straightened so many curves and bigger curves than that, that we can hardly walk in a straight line after a days work.
Treatment is divided for the two classes of patients:
1. For people that have no teeth.
2. For people that have too many teeth.
For case one we use the newly approved method of sprinkling fertilizer incorporated with saw dust on the arch. I his has an astringent effect on all hair follicles and thuslv the arch is improved.
For case two we sow the field with T. N. T. and ignite with bombarding atoms of the -Kay.

Our motto is. perfect operations but death to the patient.
This department is run in conjunction with the “Stiff Room " of the Anatomy Department. Our technique consists wholly of that used by the most modern and up-to-date slaughter houses. We have the most effecient methods of enhalining and our firing squad never misses. Therefore you see that the best results can he obtained no matter what obstacles are in onr path. We will cut anything, any time, any place.
Very often we are complimented at the amount of work that we turn out, for our motto is quantity, not quality. This assures our patients of the most amount of pain possible at the least cost, and we guarantee quick results, either way.
Our anaesthesia is of the most profound type, in fact too profound. e use the best anaesthetics available. After a few administrations of our anaesthetic, '‘sleepingsickness ’ is only amnesia as compared to our anaesthesia. W e disregard all the physiological laws and functions of the living cells because nature is too old fashioned. After all. cells are too small to bother with because we deal with big things only.

However, the anticipation of what the future may hold for you should, in a great measure, help to alleviate that feeling of sadness which comes with the day of parting.
You, as a class, have been very fortunate in being the first to take advantage of the greatly enlarged and improved facilities of your department, and it is my sincere wish that this advantage in your training will reflect itself in your work as you practice your chosen profession.
May I extend my personal wish to each of you for success along your chosen line of endeavour and that at every opportunity you will return to visit your Alma Mater.

Huge (hie Hundred Fifty-eightIlistorv of (lie Class of 1931
In September, nineteen hundred and thirty, twenty-seven girls entered the Oral Hygiene Department of Temple University, a group filled with enthusiasm and fervor for the completely new experience which lay before them. Before long they were introduced to skeletons and mannikins.
Dr. Broomell, director of our department. Miss Margaret Bailey, Supervisor and Miss Esther Fretz, assistant, proved to be our greatest consolation on what seemed to be a difficult path to tread.
An informal class meeting was held in October at which time Florence Spencer was chosen temporary president of the class and Anne Oros temporary treasurer. At a later meeting they were elected permanent holders of office together with Madelvn Smith, vice president and Lillian Engle, secretary. All of them have proven very efficient in their work.
On Thursday evening, November 6, 1930, we gave our first class function, a dinner dance at ‘'Pierre’s”. Dinner was served at specially arranged tables decorated with purple and white, the class colors. There were old-fashioned candy corsages for the ladies and artful bundles of cigarettes for the gentlemen. The place cards were cleverly designed by members of the committee. Little pasteboard toothbrushes and tubes of paste desig-nated the place for the guests of the evening. Colonel Butz. a member of the party, entertained the guests with a novel dance which brought applause from the delighted audience. Between courses the couples enjoyed music and dancing. The class was honored in having Miss Bailey. Miss Fretz. and Doctor Abbott as their guests.
On Tuesday evening of November 26, the girls of the class acted as hostesses at an open night given by the Dental College for the dentists of Philadelphia. All departments of the Dental School were open for inspection and it was our duty to show the guests our newly equipped Oral Hygiene Clinic.
Then came the first real examination which preceded the much needed and long awaited Thanksgiving recess.
Back to school for three weeks of intense work and another Anatomy exam. In spite of these gloomy prospects, the class decided to give an informal dance for the purpose of creating funds for a formal dance later in the season. We chose the Central Y.W.C.A. for the occasion and all who attended reported it to be a huge success. Another dance of this type followed later in the season. It was also given at the “Y" and the money thus raised was again put aside for the coming formal dance.
And now there remain only final examinations, the long-awaited ami long-planned-for formal dance, and. most important of all. commencement. After that we go our separate ways into all sorts of positions, but this brief teeming, busy year shall a 1 wavs be remembered.

She has more than mere intelligence for she possesses the gift of understanding human nature. She is the type of girl that cherishes friendships above all. who would guard confidences, und i- loyal to a principle.
Yet she, like everyone else, isn’t perfect. Do you remember her thundering mannikin shoe-?

Ruth won renown as the artist and poet of our class, even though she has had her hair bobbed quite short to disguise the fact.
Carving, drawing, poetry, and tinting are easily associated and all these have their attractions for Ruth. The tinting is an involuntary accomplishment as far as Ruth is concerned. since her face become, suffused with a delicate pink at the slightest provocation. However, this quaint art may bring her fame, considering the fact that the cosmeticians have long been attempting to duplicate its loveliness. "

—M. A. Geraghty.A Shade Retnrns
I awoke with a start, a fly was buzzing. 1 thought we had left these pesky things on earth when we crossed the river Styx.
Being a modern Shade, 1 turned on the radio—“This is Dickson City broadcasting," the next feature on our program will be a lecture on ‘the Needs of a Y hv DeSalles Inez Paddon. Miss Paddon spent the best years of her life in this institution and is well informed on the subject. By all the Shades, I haven't seen her since the day I visited the Dental Clinic in dear old Temple, to have a ’Twelve Year Molar extracted and the charming senior dental student, unintentionally I hope, made a slip with the instrument and here I am, a Shade. I hold no grudge against the hoy. Live and learn, my lad.
“I would like so much to see my old classmates. By jove. I will return to earth, for being a Shade, I could float any place without being seen.
‘‘I floated down to the river Styx and bribed our ’little tobacco chewing gondolier Charon, to pole me across to the earths side. Here 1 hade him goodbye with a promise to bring him a nice toothbrush, if he would meet me here at the end of a week.
‘‘How 1 longed to see Europe, the place where so many of mv now famous ‘Smith Automatic Left-Handed Scalers’ are being used. But, no, I find myself floating over Texas, in the midst of a crowd of cowboys. I saw' a girl on a large fiery steed, she dismounted and taking off her hat, which partly concealed her face, there was Nina. Once a tooth cleaner now a master of horses.
‘Tin on my way again; I find myself floating down Broadway. New York, a huge electric sign confronts me, ’Develop Sophistication’. 1 float through a crack in the door and find
Page One Hundred Seventy-sixAnn Oros, changing shy, awkward persons into sophisticated ladies and gentlemen.
“Passing into one of the large theatres, I sank into a box seat just as a Red Hot Blues Singer came on the stage: after a song she talked on ‘ hat well dressed woman will wear . Suddenly I remembered Mannikin room, ‘You should see my dress , well if it is’nt Dorothy Teitelman. Glancing at the program, I read, ‘Dancer of International Fame’, Esther Ellis. She comes flitting out dressed as a butterfly. She has shed the old white uniform and is now famous.
“I’ll just drop into the Night Club called ‘Wisdom Tooth . The patrons, upon entering, were examined by the proprietress, Lauretta Parkinson, if they had a wisdom tooth they could enter, if not, they were refused admittance. 1 only hoped that Lauretta would he more accurate in recording information now, than she had been in the Clinic. I watched the theater crowd arrive, among them Gwcnn Cash and her husband, possessing wisdom teeth, they enter. There seems to he some argument about the second lady in the party, Louise Jordan, her wisdom tooth being ‘impacted in her handbag, the proprietress remembering her own 'impacted wisdom tooth, allowed her to enter. The beautiful hostess is greeting the guests as they arrive. Helen Henderson, wife of Penn’s famous track star. It was time to rest for the night; any more shocks I felt beside being a Shade, I’d he a nervous wreck.
“Next morning as I was leaving New York, I noticed a sign, 'Teeth Extracted. Laughing Without Gas . 1 peered through the window. Mary Geraghty and Rita Gordesky were giving the anaesthetic. The process consisted of relating a few of their old Temple jokes. If I remember right, a person would have to he unconscious to laugh at their jokes. When the patient opened his mouth particularly wide. Mary cleverly put her hand in his mouth and pulled out the Mandibular Pre-molor. I hear themtalkin': about Margaret Grace. It seems that she conducts a free clinic on the East side. It is known by the sign. ‘The Dirtier They Are. The Better We Like Them .
“Towards evening I find myself in the Jungles of Africa. I chanced upon a hundred native men and women seated around a camp-fire, intently listening to a woman who is standing on the small stump of a tree. 1 heard these words. ‘Brush Your Teeth Five Times A Day. See Your Dentist At Least Ten Times A Year.’ Anna Schetto our great expounder of Oral Hygiene. Glancing into one of their huts I ran across Flora Romanelli teaching four little natives to brush their teeth. As a reward she gave them each a sample tube of paste to eat before going to bed.
“Singapore was my next stop. Passing up a narrow street, I noticed a woman; her step was slow, her head was bent and as she walked she mumbled to herself. She climbed steep stairs to a dark, foreboding room, as she turned the key in the lock I heard her mutter, ‘T wonder if 1 shall ever discover how you know when a tooth stops bleeding! . My word. Kit Harper.
“Then back to sunny California I floated, on one of the main streets of San Francisco was a sign. ‘Cysts Specialists . I’m sure this can’t be in any way connected with ‘Chick SalesV. ‘Specialists.’ I entered and there was my old friend Kitty Baier,
1 learned that she wras very well known. Her motto being, ‘When bigger and better cysts are cured, we’ll cure them .
“I’ll rest awhile in Golden Gate Park. Seated on a bench were two girls, the larger was tin charming Julia Wingaris, the other the sweetheart of the class. Lillian Engle. Julia was relating word for word, all that her adored employer had said to her that day. And just then, Lillian, he said. ‘I’m sorry, but I'm out of gas.’ Ob. Lillian answered, ‘Heavens, do dentists pull that old gag, too?’
“Music was always sweet to my ears and when I heard my Alma Mammy being played. I could not resist stopping at asmall town in Pennsylvania. A huge banner was strung across the street, it rea«I 'Welcome Mayor of Titusville'. Perched on the back of a beautiful touring car was none other than the Mayoress, Flip Spencer, giving an inspiring speech ending by her saying. ‘Lets Get Tearing Titusville.’
“Among the noted antique dealers of Pittsburgh. I found Frances Kover, she specialised in broken pipes, half-smoked cigar stubs, match boxes, and dog collars. 1 had the privilege while at school to assist in gathering together the basis of this great collection.
“On passing through the Alleghanies, I see the dearest little house with a fireplace, ruffled curtains and bright rugs. V little blue eyed boy ran in and called. ‘.Mother . ‘Yes. Darling." there was Peggy Sayres. It does my heart good to see a girl of our class devoting her life to a work which i excelled by none other.
“I read in the evening papers, that the President of the United States was posing while the great sculptress. Ruth illiams was making a bust of him. Amy Beresin was her assistant: she was really unique in her line. She never knew what she would make when she started but it alwavs ended as a surprise, especially for Amy.
“Eleanor Wickler was giving insanity test, she said to her patient. ‘Do you want to spit?' ‘No. said the patient. 'Do you?’ Eleanor enjoyed her work very much.
“In looking for Ida Kraiman. I found her in a forest carrying a gun. She sang a song that went like this. 'Bones. More Bones.
“My time is up while waiting for Charon. I'm reading the last editorial of the Daily News. I find that Bee Lewis is trying to introduce co-education at Yale. As usual, never thinking of the good for herself, always for others.
"Charon is coming and 1 must return for I have a date with Doctor Abbott, tonight.'

OUR OWN UNEMPLOYMENT SITUATION
A dental hygienist, in desperate circumstances, discovered 5674 ways to commit suicide, hut after trying five or six of them the novelty wore off.
Down to her last dollar, even spending two cents of that for a newpaper, as she dejectedly returned to her third floor rear $3.00 room at the Y. W. C. A., her head held bravely in the air. She felt that she couldn’t hear to even glance at the “help want ads.” so listlessly turning
the pages she read the baboon at the zoo had died and the authorities were on the lookout for another one.
The next day she applied and got the job. Instead of climbing into a stiff starched uniform every morning, she climbed into the baboon’s skin. All she had to do was to jump around the cage. W ith each succeeding day she became more proficient in the ancient art of jumping, hut one day she outdid herself and landed in the next cage.
On turning she beheld a lion staring her in the face. That sure did give her a bad moment. Loudly she shrieked. Help! Help! The lion began to open its huge mouth, she started to hack away when to her surprise, a head appeared. W hat kind of a lion was this? It was talking, it said, “Shut up you darn fool. Do you think you’re the only hygienist out of work.

An analysis of our conduct from day to day really proves the correctness of this philosophy. Our accomplishments, yours and mine, are the direct result of a determination to accomplish. Strange to relate, many of the world’s greatest accomplishments are the outgrowth of dreams — sometimes just day dreams. Dreams only become realities when the dreamer has the determination to see them through.
The idea that you would attend Dental College and become a member of a noble profession was, at one time, more or less a dream. Remember? You poscssed the determination to make that dream a reality.
And peculiar as it might seem, all of the time that you have been accomplishing your object, you have been dreaming of other things — among them a successful professional career. Your ability to make this dream a reality again depends upon your determination; however, you must not handicap yourself by an uncomplimentary introduction to your patients. Remember

Huge One Hundred Eighty-threeIt is only natural to expect claims for excellence in design, materials, and workmanship in the manufacturer's description of his product. To anyone unacquainted with S. S.White methods and policies such claims would make little or no impression any more than the customary language of advertising. When, however, one gives a little thought to the history of a producing organization and to its recognized business policies, the printed words about its product have more significance.
The S. S.White Dental Manufacturing Company commenced its history in 1844 by making and selling only the best dental supplies possible of production. In its long business existence an enviable reputation for doing things right has extended to all parts of the world. S. S. White goods are accepted everywhere as the highest standard in dental supplies.
In the manufacture of dental chairs and equipment at Prince Bay. Staten Island, N. Y., the accuracy and thoroughness of construction simply reflect the general principles of S. S. White production. No detail is slighted, no parts are unimportant because they may be concealed from view, no work is done on the “good enough" basis. Likewise no material is used to save cost and increase profit, and compromise quality. That is why S. S. White engines, handpieces, steel goods, chairs, and equipment give years and years of uniformly excellent service. That is why generations of dentists have continued to purchase S. S. White products. That is the plain reason for their ultimate economy.
