BMO STREET PH I LA. 40 iv,4rr ion m WatT HAS often been said that good teachers are those who find support not upon the degrees or titles that embellish their names, but rather, upon a passionate desire to instill in their pupils the wonders, truths and perfections of their art. We, of the Senior Class, in our role as the pupil, find deepest praise and admiration for those who have been close by always, as we challenged new tasks and experiences. Therefore, to those who heretofore have been known as the Minor Faculty, we give special thanks. To our friends Raymond Walter. George Sandman. David Bell. William Baglivo. Stephen Carmick. Wallace Forbes. Edward Subin. Dorothy Waugh. Michael Salerno and many others, members of the faculty who have personally guided us and have been our inspiration by virtue of kind words, encouraging smiles and helping hands—we most sincerely dedicate this volume. And to: Ernest Ritsert John Stetzer T.

As the first class to be graduated under the accelerated program, we have only begun to do our part. It is our desire that this book serve to recall the years of happiness, study and determination that have marked the past we are leaving behind. But of even greater significance, we hope that this volume of printed memories will remind us of our great step forward into the profession of Dentistry, of service to our country, our people, and our cause.RAYMOND C. WALTER A.B., DD.S. A Message to the Class of 1943 HE teaching staff salutes the Class of 1943 as it leaves - , Temple University’s halls of learning; some to enter public life, but the majority to join the fighting forces of our United Nations. On Commencement Day you will receive your credentials to practice the profession of your choice. This day is really the commencement of your career and we. the instructors, are happy to have had a part, not only in the moulding of your character, but also in inculcating desire in each of you for increasing knowledge for the betterment of the dental profession. You are living in trying times and in a challenging age. Yours is a difficult task but a proud and a glorious one. You. together with the youths of the whole world are called upon to give the world a new idealism and a new philosophy of life. When you leave us you will join our military forces to help defeat the fascist forces that are attempting to enslave all mankind. You. with the millions of other youths must not fail in this mission, for America and the whole world rely upon its youth not only to win a military victory but to achieve the kind of peace that will guarantee a decent world for all mankind in the future. We, at the Dental School, will be watching and waiting to hear from you. Our interest in your class will not cease when you leave. Wherever you go. carry the high ideals and praise of Temple University. Now. may you go forward in your task with the help of God and the many prayers from our lips for the safety of all. 8CONTEXTS Administration 11 Seniors . 2!)

Dean 12To The Senior Class: Throughout your scholastic career you. as a Class, have had an unusual experience in that I am the fourth person whom you have addressed as Dean. It was your good fortune to begin the study of Dentistry under one of the finest gentlemen who has ever graced a profession, Dr. I. Norman Broomell. hollowing him. it was your privilege to be under the guidance of Dr. C. Barton Addie and Dr. Alfred M, Haas, both of whom have very materially added to your fund of professional philosophy and knowledge. It is unfortunate, for me, that I have not had the opportunity to become better acquainted with you as individuals because certainly there are some among you who. in the years to come, will be called upon to make definite contributions to society and to the profession which you have chosen for your life's work. When that time comes it would be a pleasure for me to feel that I had contributed to your success in some small way. During the coming years, each of us will be expected to bear his or her individual share of the burden and responsibility. My fondest hope for you is, that when the final balance is struck you will have served with honor to the men under whom you began your career, your Alma Mater, your Country and. above all. yourself.

Then in 1931, Alpha Omega Fraternity merged with Alpha Zeta Gamma Fraternity. These mergers were not in vain, for today we are proud to relate that we have thirty-four undergraduate chapters throughout the United States and Canada. We also distinguish ourselves by possessing eighteen alumni chapters. Alpha Omega was organized upon the basis of fraternalism. character and high scholarship. During these past years, we Alpha Omegans have continued along these high ideals, always striving to bring more honor to our fraternity. Today many of our fraternity members are in the armed service while we in the undergraduate chapter have also done our part by the presentation of dental ambulances to the United States Army. This is only one indication of our loyalty to our country, fraternity and to ourselves. It is in this spirit that we function. 94A Q Chancellor Joseph Fox V icc-Chanccllor Ralph Goldstein Quaestor ... . .. Everett Lipman Scribe.

Michigan. It was organized by a small group of men who. in spite of opposition to the fraternity by the faculty, persevered and overcame this obstacle so that Xi Psi Phi might become a reality. Xi Psi Phi Fraternity was founded on three simple principles: knowledge, morality and friendship. They declared its purpose to be the provision of a better, more substantial foundation on which to build a successful professional life; to create a desire for a cleaner, healthier atmosphere in which to live; and to develop an appreciation of the wonderful qualities of friendship and hospitality. From thissmall nucleus Xi Psi Phi Fraternity has expanded into one of the largest dental fraternities, amassing thirty-one chapters and exceeding 14.000 members. To this day the zeal in which she has been nurtured has been carried on, overcoming all obstacles and flourishing in each of her members. %E Y $ President.................. V ice-Prcsidcnt.........

During the summer of 1901, the fraternity had its inception at the New York College of Dentistry. It now-ranks among the best and most active dental fraternities in the country. Sacrifice, education and devotion are the aims and ideals extended to its members. The Delta Chapter at Temple University School of Dentistry is proud of the fact that since its inauguration in 1923 it has risen among the ranks until now- it is considered the “top'’ chapter. The entire house was remodeled this year and the addition of a ping-pong table in the recreation room has added impetus to fraternity spirit and congeniality among the members. Scholastically and socially the chapter takes a back seat to none on the campus. The group this year has been working like a well oiled machine and great achievements have been accomplished which lead us ever nearer to the highest standards of fraternalism and dentistry. 98LEA Master.........

There have been eleven Psi Omcgans as president of the American Dental Association and J. Ben Robinson. President-Elect, is the Grand Master of Psi Omega. The head of the Army Dental Corps at this time is Brigadier General Robert H. Mills, also a member of Psi Omega Fraternity. Psi Omega was a charter member of the Professional Interfraternity Conference and for many years the only dental fraternity in that organization. Many changes have taken place since that modest start, for we have prospered and contributed much to the dental profession. 100W Q Grand Master......... Junior Master. Secretary............

What can you score? If you think you can get blood from a stone, then you've heard about the vein stones and you are a "hep" senior. You should score 90 100. If you know that an aspirin tablet is not used for note taking then you are "in the groove" and should score from 80-90. If you know that the Malleus, Incus and Stapes aren’t ancient Indian tribes than you're still "in the know" and should score 70-80. But if you’re still tuning in for the Fibrous Network on your portable then your score should be 0-70.

TWICE-TOLLED TALES A patient complained that the clinic was so mercenary that when she had a bridge constructed they even charged her for the toll. IllA Quart-Early Letter From: James Graham To: Blaise Guclla Dear Blaise: Just came home from the office and my wife told me that I had twelve bottles of whiskey in the cellar and that I was to empty the contents of the bottles down the sink, or else. I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink with the exception of one glass, which I drank. 1 extracted the cork from the second bottle and did likewise, with the exception of one glass which I drank. 1 then withdrew the cork from the third bottle and emptied the good old booze down the sink with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I pulled the cork from the fourth sink and poured the bottle down the glass which 1 drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of the glass and poured the cork dowm the bottle. I pulled the next cork out of my throat and poured the sink down the bottle and drank the glass. Then I corked the sink with the glass, bottled it and drank the pour. When I had everything emptied. I steadied the house with one hand, counted the bottles, corks and glasses with the other, which totaled twenty-nine. To be sure 1 counted them again, when they came by. and 1 had seventy-four. And as the house came by. I counted them again. Finally, I had all the houses, bottles, corks and glasses counted, except one house and bottle which I corked and drank. Jim. 112Advertisement Do you feel tired and do you ache all over? When you get up in the morning do you long for another hour of sleep? If you do, go back to bed. Remember, T. B. or not T.

Jaker developed his X-ray films without removing the surrounding paper and lead backing. He got sixteen select views of a coal mine during a midnight blackout. Hess, while breaking down a distal wall on Rowen’s patient, also broke the fifteen-year-old kid’s morale. The impatient patient shoved Hess aside and yelled. “Say Doc. was you ever a wrestler?’’ Sack took films of a child and in examining the pictures which showed deciduous teeth and the permanent teeth still unerupted remarked. ‘Gee. the kid must have moved: I’ve got a double exposure.” Gimbel didn't show up in the “den.” "Reds” was out of pinochle cards.

Lee told us his father was a broker and owned half of the entire undcrcrust of a western state that contained vast silver mines. And that if the government would only remove the state of Nevada off his father's land they would be millionaires. 114We were warned about writing prescriptions clearly. I here was the story about a patient, who after obtaining the medicine took the prescription and used it for years as a railway pass; twice as an invitation to a dance; once as a complimentary ticket to a world scries ball game; and later as a recommendation from his employer. And in the evening his daughter played it on the piano. • Victor told us about a sure way to pass the state board operative examination. Very simple, just contact a set of triplets. Prepare the cavity in one. and put a finished inlay in the other. Then seat the first one in the chair to have the tooth charted. Slip the second one in the chair to check the cavity and then the third to check out. Confusing but amusing. James discussed a slide and called attention to the blanched gingival area.

A large brick building leaning up against a metal factory and given moral support by a Lit warehouse on the other side. It is a typical week-day afternoon, students arc running around with corned beef and egg. lettuce and tomato sandwiches hanging out of their mouths. Soda bottles, garbage and students are strewn about the pavement. A salesman peddles his wares- specials on ties, razor blades and handkerchiefs . . . handkerchiefs, razor blades, tics and specials. Three flags fly from the red building and if the entrance was any larger, one would expect a fire truck to roll out. A committee of examiners walk up to the entrance. They are visiting the school in order to report to the board of trustees on the prospects of building a new dental school sometime in the near future—sometime in the future—sometime. As they enter two stu- dents dash out to meet them. Dimon (trying to pass Green . , . highly improbable): I seen them first, besides I only have 478 points plus an MODB in amalgam which Quinn checked this morning which gives me 479. Green (With lasso in right hand and appointment pad in other): Right this way . . . name . . . address . . . (suddenly realizes that they are not patients) Oh. I’m sorry . . . (Of in the background Manger is supporting his body on the railing.) Manger: I bet I have a disappointment . . . I hope. The committee of men Walk downstairs to the basement. Scene II The “den”—the recreation room—the stepchild classroom for Sack, Gimbel. Kantor, Godick, Levenson. Fox and Tcitelbaum. The Waldorf luncheon palace for David, Fritz. Glick, Victor, Zackon and Gershenson. The haven for pinochle players, kibitzers and jerks. The sharp slapping of cards is heard above the tumult. The committee takes a peek. The smoke is too thick to sec beyond the first table. Four seniors are busy making points . . . pinochle points. Gimbel (disgustedly): Go ahead, be a gypsy! Godick (goading his opponent): Kantor, you’ll never learn. Kantor (smoking on borrowed tobacco): Sack, you’ll never learn. Sack: Huh? Scene III The committee looks into the lower amp B. Three students are sitting in the fourth row playing Guggenheim, four students arc sleeping in the fifth aisle and Snyder and Fishman are near the top . . . talking things over. The rest of the class is doing prosthetics, at home in bed. or at the Troc. Schabinger enters. 120There is a faint trace of applause. He nods his head in acknowledgment and proceeds to take roll. Schabinger: Album? 1st Student: (in sneaky voice): Here. Schabinger: Azoff? 2nd Student (loudly): Here. Schabinger: Buono? 2nd Student: Here. Schabinger: Blaker? 2nd Student: Here.

Schabinger: Zackon? 2nd Student (hoarsely): Here. Scene IV The dental clinic 1:00 P. M. A patient is seated in chair No. 2. Baglivo is occupied at chair No. I. Hess has his eye on pretty female patient in chair No. 27. Our senior student clicks his heels, stands at attention, raises mirror, whistles and snaps fingers to attract Baglivo’s attention. Hess notices student and wanders down from the other end of the clinic. Our hero tries to busy himself and make believe he doesn't need any help. Hess (in his best soprano): What do you want, doctor? Senior (sarcastically): 1 want Dr. Baglivo. (Hess ignores remark• Student succumbs to desire to get some work done.) Senior: Please chart an MO in the maxillary right second premolar. Hess: What's that? Senior: Upper right second bicuspid. 121Hess: Oh, why don't you say what you mean! (Hess looks for cavity and pokes patient in eye. Then he breaks No. 17 explorer, steps on student's toe and finally charts cavity.) Hess (picks up spoon excavator): You can start by scooping out the decay. Let me show you. (breaks excavator) Now go ahead and do it. Senior then removes broken pieces of metal from the cavity. Hess, torn between pretty female patient at chair No. 2 and pretty female patient at chair No. 27, considers the distance and stays at chair No. 2. Baglivo is busily engaged at chair No. 6. Suddenly Hess endeavors to help again . . . as Rusca enters the clinic. He goes through instrument case, throws instruments around and finally picks out hoe 52. Then he gently shoves our hero aside and in attempting to put in retention breaks hoe 52. Upsets some more instruments, selects 70 hoe and breaks same. Tells student to take over, now that he has been shown how it is done. Our senior hero puts in retention with small inverted cone while Hess is mentally occupied with the contents of chair No. 27. Hess disappears as cavity is to be checked off but Doyle leaves window post long enough to check preparation and declare no cement base necessary. Student then asks patient for $2.00 for six grains of gold. Patient has $1.00, a P. T. C. token and pack of matches. Student takes dollar, digs another dollar out of his own pocket and rushes up to cage to get gold. There he spends a half-hour while Gibby and Calely go over profits and losses (?) of the last 30 years. Finally our senior hero finishes plugging, burnishing and polishing filling. Looks up and observes that for some peculiar reason Hess has again assumed his position in front of chair No. 2. Student looks around for another instructor but Hess anticipates move and rushes to his assistance. Hess bawls student out for not having No. 17 explorer, but calms down when reminded that he broke it. Then Hess breaks No. 3 explorer trying to lift out filling. Complains about inferior material for instruments and then informs student that the time is 3:32 and no instruction is to be given after 3:30. Student administers spirits of ammonia to battered patient, remembers that Hess comes in only in the afternoon and makes a morning appointment. Then he dismisses patient and rushes to supply house to replace broken instruments. Manuel Album: "If the students themselves were more careful of their clothes and mannerisms about the school, it would tend to put the school on a higher level instead of being as a workshop." Samuel A .off: "Within these four years. I found 1 emple Dental School does not live up to my expectations. Here's hoping that all succeeding classes find Temple Dental School better." Charles Bill: "Leave the school as it is; it is perfectly all right. It was swell and I had a good time." Leon Blaker: "There's been fun, there’ve been headaches and worry, and I'll be right glad to get out. I’ll try to remember all the pleasant things if that's possible.” Leon Braverman: "The following instructors are my pets: Dr. Grisbaum. Dr. Quinnsy Quinn (the colored pencil artist). Butcher-boy Hess. S. C. Ott, and Guy Limquico and his Royal Cadavars. 122123©tie By A Bewildered Student 1 work all day with the greatest of care. To prepare an MO with a beautiful flare. Comes Dr. Forbes to give confirmation. Amalgam, he says is correct restoration. Then replacing the dentine, I must have a base, So I call over Quinn (and have 1 got a case!) “Doctor ’ he says, “the cement should be polished. Tin oxide prevents it from being demolished.” After hours arc spent In inserting cement. Dr. Walter appears as if from nowhere, And he says to me. “Doctor, what are you putting in there?” “Amalgam.” I answer in a trembling voice. “Himmel!” he shouts, “gold foil is the choice.” Then I start all over to make the correction Of cutting my angles to sharpened perfection. After annealing and placing some pellets of gold, I find that the damn thing still doesn't hold. Then along comes Hess with that powerful right arm, Shoves me aside and vouches no harm. He proceeds to alter what 1 had prepared. Because he likes inlays whose walls are well flared. Then almost relieved of my trouble with foil. Good old Hess exclaims, “Hooray, I struck oil!” (I still think he's a pretty good pal. For because of him I can do root canal.) So 1 call Dr. Subin, the mighty mite. And he yells, “Extirpation!” at the very first sight. Quick with reamers, pluggers and gutta points, 1 filled the canal till I was weak in the joints. Then after waiting around for more than a week. My patient returned with a red swollen cheek. In order to gain complete satisfaction The only way out was successful extraction. Now, when all the profs have a separate idea. We're always working in a constant fear. Of getting a different prof every day And having to change to suit his new way. So why can’t you all figure out something sound. To prevent all of us from being jerked around. 124L E C T IJ II E (Upper amphitheater on Friday morning a' 11:00 A.

Fernando Cabrera: "I've come from a very far country to 1 emple Dental School because 1 think it is one of the best in the country, and by being in school 1 have found out that all the professors are willing to teach at all times.'

It had its hard spots and its obviously soft spots. Most of the faculty was what could be expected, squareshooting and pleasant." Bernard Entine: "I believe Temple Dental School gives an excellent Basic training, but has not advanced sufficiently in its research work. It has not advanced in tempo with the profession in its teachings." Joseph Fox: "It is with joy that 1 graduate so that 1 may do my share and yet with sorrow that I am leaving my friends." 129LECTUR E (Upper amphitheater on Monday afternoon at 4:05 P. M.) Gracefully arched fingers holding a delicate white pencil are carefully and significantly inscribing the numbers of unoccupied scats in a little black book. There aren't many unoccupied scats because fraternity pledges have come in and fill them up while the smarter upperclassmen slay home and sleep. "Today the subject will be the filling of Class II cav-it-ies with gold foil . . . Class 11 cav-it-iz being mesio-occlusal or disto-occlusal cavitiz—that is. those involving both the occlusal and prox-imal suffices in either bicuspids or molar teeth. Before inserting the gold foil, we must be ab-sol-utc-ly sure that the rrubberr dam is corrcct-ly in place to insurre com-plete dry-ness.

At the next lecture (Sudden exit). 130Joseph Godick: "I think the administrative set-up of the school and floor is good with the exception that more instructors arc needed on the clinic floor. Dr. Walter’s instruction is very good.” Seymour Goodman: “1 have enjoyed my years at Temple Dental School. The way it seems to me. when one first enters this school, he is given a great big eight-ball: the student stands behind pushing, the instructors push on the other side. Say. 1 wonder who pushed the harder.’’ Philip Green: “I have had a good time at Temple and learned a lot.” Blaise Guella: “Most of these fellows around here should grow up and forget they are in undergraduate school. But it was fun while it lasted.” Eleanor Hallman: “The first thought that came to my mind is that I was a lady before 1 came here. I owe a lot to many of the instructors and professors, and 1 want them to know that 1 appreciate it.” Daniel Isaacson: "I feel humble due to the close association with so many swell fellows, and look forward to lifelong friendships with them.” Frederick Jaker: “We are all getting our of here to go into the Army and hope we can do our part for victory and the perpetuation of democratic principles in the world.” “Ve‘s House Blues 'V'U K ad About-Him, Sod About Him, Ho Con I b« Clad Without Hin "Blues” aS sun by Eddie Subin 131Vernon Rosenberg: “I think that under the supervision of our new dean, something will be made of this school as it could be the best in the country. Of course this would mean getting rid of some of the instructors on the floor who seem to know-less than the students.” Robert Rowen: ”1 learned a lot here and there's a lot I didn't learn. I think the school has gotten better in the last four years as we went along.” Dental Naval Officer “If a thirty-mile wind was blowing and you were extracting a tooth, what would you do?” Ensign Kaczmar—“I’d throw a dozen forceps out of the porthole." Dental Naval Officer—"Suppose a forty-mile wind was blowing?” Ensign Kaczmar—"I’d throw the second dozen of forceps out.” Dental Naval Officer “And if a fifty-mile gale was blowing?” Ensign Kaczmar—"I'd throw the third dozen of forceps out.” Dental Naval Officer (irritated)—“Where the deuce would you get so many instruments?” Ensign Kaczmar— “The same place you got all the wind.” Meshnik—"How does that upper plate feel?” Patient (laughing)—"It feels fine but it keeps falling out.” Meshnik—"Well, w-hat are you laughing at?” Patient "I'm a Corega salesman.” Robert Ruder: "I’d like to see our clinic operated as a clinic, and not as a Profit-producing Business.” Sidney Russock: ”Dr. Walter is the most constructive instructor on the floor and has the student's welfare at heart.” Edward Saladow: “The professors are a little too hard on the students as a bit more assistance on the clinic floor would benefit the students a great deal.” 132Maurice Teitelbaum: “In college we have worked freely with men of varied creeds, religions and ideals. That is the blessing of democracy as opposed to fascism- we mean to keep it that way.” Sidney Teperson: “I like the school for its past policy of not holding the ax over the students’ heads, and treating them with consideration.” James Thomas: “With the exception of the need for a new building. I feel that Temple has as much to offer, if not more, than any other school in the country.” Maurice Timins: “My four years at Temple Dental School have been very fruitful, as they have instilled in me a greater self-respect, and have given me a profession that is for me increasingly interesting.” Azoff—“I keep reaming this upper incisor but I still get an exudate.” Subin—“Let me sec that. Mmmm. No wonder, you're in the floor of the nose.” Cornfeld (quizzing amid noise and confusion)—"Mow is avertin administered?” Kantor—“I . . . er . . . Cornfeld—“Yes. you.” Kantor—“. . . reckon . . .” Cornfeld—“Correct, and do you know what the opiates are used for?” Kantor—“Nope.” Cornfeld—“Correct.” • Modlin- “Well, that's the last time I’ll be in Salerno’s class.” Victor—“Why?” Modlin—“I don’t know. That's what Salerno said.” Christy—“Suppose your nurse accidentally used H2SO) instead of H-jO on a patient, what would you do Johnson?” Johnson (just waking up and stooged by Snyder) “Why . . . I’d move out of town!” Evelyn Voi.pe: “I have enjoyed the work and I like all the boys, and I hope they all come back with flying colors.” Leonard Weinstock: “If I had known what 1 would run into in orthodontia lectures. I would have taken up shorthand. I wish every duty were exodontia.” Paul Zackon: “I feel the greatest thing in my entire course has been the opportunity to enjoy such a close comradeship with such a swell group of wonderful fellows. and I only hope that in the days to come, these friendships can be continued.“ 133Ih»-Ca,y’s The Thing A certain senior was attempting to clean out a large distal area of a lower third molar. There was no rubber dam used. The student had his fingers firmly wrapped around the tonsilar fauces and his mirror cast a reflection of the large colon. While he was working the pitiful patient was slowly choking to death. She gagged, gasped and groaned. Finally the patient could control herself no longer as anti-peristalis was reaching its final stage. With her face flushed and beads of sweat strung across her forehead she lounged forward over the basin and vomited. At first the student was bewildered, then he regained his composure and remarked: “Gee. all that decay in that tooth!" Harry Levin: "In addition to breaking all records previously set. our class will probably break still another, by graduating the highest percentage of married students.” Morton Levy: "It is about time the faculty started cracking down on the students here, but why. Oh why. couldn’t they have waited until 1 graduated.” Everett Lipman: “The clinic floor might take an example from the pedo clinic, doing some charity work. Make the diagnostic room truly diagnostic, not just a pit where Scnor Mathews exercises his wit. If possible, have clinic instructors know they are there to help students." Robert Long: "On the whole I think the school compares favorably with any other dental school in the country. With all its faults and shortcomings, I think I made a wise choice in attending this institution." Henry McAllister: "Just let me spend my time in the Crown and Bridge department. This department teaches one practical dentistry." Louis Manger: "A real diagnostician should be put in the diagnostic room. X-ray department is good. On the operative floor there is too much gold foil and not enough inlay work." William Marias: "Temple Dental School is an institution where it takes three hours to check off an A' prophy with Quinn." 135Irving Kraut: “These four years have been an opportunity for wealth of knowledge and experience and to gather invaluable acquaintances.” Gerald Krepps: 'It is a point of interest to me to come back here after the war is over just to see how all these changes that are now being made will turn out. since we are going through a period of transition.” Rocco La Rocca: "There have been heartaches and joyful hours. If we graduate. all will be well. I have enjoyed the professors and hope that I can live up to the standards of Temple Dental School.” Saul Lee: "To Goldman, my roommate and bedmate. I bequeath all my polishing instruments so that his future may be of the utmost brilliance.” Robert Shoenthal: "I feel that I’ve obtained the knowledge for which I came; my purpose in coming has been fulfilled.” Gene Siciliano: "As far as the teachings arc concerned. Temple Dental School is unsurpassed, but 1 am afraid I can’t make the same favorable statement about the building itself.” Jeremiah Silfies: "Of course the school has very good equipment. This, together with a better advisory staff, would be capable of turning out dentists 100 per cent better.” Sidney Silverman: "Advice to fellows getting on the floor: if you wish to succeed, carry a piece of work through with the same instructor or you’ll run into trouble.” 135William Silverman: "Some of the things I have noticed are the inferior work that is allowed to get through, particularly in the Crown and Bridge and Prosthetics departments, plus gyping, plus graft, plus the jealousy among instructors.” Morris Snyder: "This business of points could be improved. Instead of making an arbitrary number of operative points, have the amount of all clinical work done taken into consideration.” Robert Spangler: ”1 think there are a lot of improvements that could be made around school. On the whole 1 have benefited a good deal from the instruction given.” Saul Strauss: “Temple Dental School is a swell place to visit and to stay, as long as it is not over four years.” Seymour Strauss: “I think the operative department is one of the finest in the country. Orthodontia and oral surgery are lacking. Prosthetics department is good.” Alfred Sussman: "Going through the school has been tough going, but 1 find that every hard knock 1 have received has added another rung to my ladder of knowledge."

Victory must mean good living and a knowledge that we have not existed on this earth in vain! To the cause oi healing the physical wounds of humanity we, as members of the dental profession, offer our hands; to the cause of healing the intellectual and spiritual wounds we, as members of a universal society, shall give our minds. Whatever virtuous powers which we may possess we place by the side of the dedication that mankind shall always progress and never fade backward into ignanimity!DENTISTRY F P WITH A W O F Never an anachronism, Dentistry is an indicator of the times. In war or peace, it has taken its place in the social structure of our nation. A lofty position deservably established! Continuous progress has marked the development of our profession, and never once has it been side-tracked by any issue, no matter how great. Instead, it always has leaped to the fore, fighting for the chance to do the best for the greatest number. Dental educators have seen fit to revise the curricula of our schools. They have widened the scope of their teachings to include courses specifically occasioned by the present world crisis. Treatment of traumatic injuries of the jaws, treatment of burns and principles of first aid were introduced to the war conscious student. Many dental practitioners have given up their lucrative practices in order to join the armed forces. Many of these same men have followed the troops into the jungles of Guadalcanal, the burning sands of the Tunisian deserts, the arctic wastes of Alaska and the mountains of Sicily. Working under the severest rigors of climate and with limited materials, they have contributed, in no small way, to the health, welfare and safety of our fighting forces. Dentistry will not consider the signing of the peace as an ending, instead it considers it a beginning. Another challenge to accept. One that will place us among the leaders in the rehabilitation of the world. (These Are Official U. S. Army Signal Corps Photographs.)L S IN STEP D AT WAR The fruits of our knowledge and experience will be extended to every individual and to every nation; a beginning of a new brotherhood based upon the freedom of disease will then be initiated. The photographs on the opposite page, by the United States Army Signal Corps, clearly demonstrate the type of service rendered both in base hospital and in the field. Here is depicted operative procedures as performed somewhere in Australia, at a United States Base Hospital, and during maneuvers. No man's health is ever neglected. The equipment used by the Army Dental Corps is highly adequate under the most trying conditions. In keeping with the fluid character of modern warfare, the mobile dental units, as demonstrated by the unit at Carlisle training center, are used to maintain dental treatment for our men while they are on the march. Even in the jungles of New Guinea, the healing arm of Dentistry gives aid and relief to the men who are carrying the war to the enemy. The last photograph on this page presents a different picture in convenience for practice; and it is worthy to note that dental care is given concurrently with surgical medical treatment in order to afford army personnel the best route to rehabilitation and good health.

Norman Broomell. Even though our association with him was brief in span, the ideals he instilled in us will survive and be carried with us wherever we go. To know him was to know kindness, respect and generosity. An internationally known leader in his profession, a friend to thousands, he never lost consideration, sympathy and understanding for his students. Always in the affection of all that were associated with him, we are proud to say that we knew Dr. I. Norman Broomell."horn the hig pitchers the little pitchers are filled." As all fledgelings must learn from their elders, so do we, as students, receive our instruction from our teachers. In the true spirit of scientific endeavor we take their words not as law and gospel to go unquestioned, but, as a guide to further understanding and knowledge. We hold them in respect as educators and as men, and we take honest pride in having them share this volume with us.DR. G. D. TIMMONS DEANTO THE OCTOBER. 1943. CLASS: Just a short three years ago you, as a class, entered Temple University Dental School with high hopes and ambitions of fulfilling your desires to become a member of a great healing profession and a further desire to be of service to mankind. Our country was at peace, it is true that war clouds were gathering, yet the signs were not clear that you could not realize your ambitions. Soon, we as a nation were embroiled in a world conflict and because of this all plans had to be altered to a point better to serve the needs of our country. Gone were your plans for interneships, private practice and such other personal desires. All of our thoughts were directed toward protecting that right which you had exercised when you first decided to study dentistry, the right of free choice in a free country. Now you are about to graduate and the majority of you will take your places in the armed forces of the nation. I am not fearful of the job you will do. because you have ably demonstrated your capabilities during your scholastic career. All I ask is that you remember that the eyes of your friends, you have left behind, are upon you and that we expect you to serve, wherever it may be, in such a manner as to do credit to your country, your Alma Mater, and yourself. Sincerely.ROBERT L. JOHNSON PRESIDENT To the Senior Class School of Dentistry Templo University Seniors approach graduation with a sense of happy achievement and expectancy, for Commencement marks the close of student days and the beginning of a professional career. It is. therefore, one of the important milestones of life. For most of you. howevor, civilian practice will be doferrod by the war. This fact should not lessen tho thrill of accomplishment which is rightfully yours. You are graduating into a high advonture. The military careers which lie before you present great opportunities for service to your country and to mankind. I hope that out of them may come rich experiences which will equip you for even finor careers in the years of peace which lie ahead. I like to think of your generation as a bridge to a moro promising world and I hope that the days you have spent at Temple University coupled with a period of national service will equip you to be leaders in the finer human schome toward which we are groping. You will have gained capacity, understanding and a sense of responsibility,—all of which will be sorely needed in the post war world. Temple University is proud of you. Wherever your paths may lead I want you to know that you carry our fondost wishos with you. Good luck to you all. Faithfully yours.MILLARD E. GLADFELTER VICE-PRESIDENT To Tho Members ol the Class of October. 1943: This Yearbook will carry for the men in the classes ol the Dental School memories peculiar only to a war period. Your classmates are not only professional colleagues, but they are soldiers engaged with you in the great task of uniting all tho forces of this democracy not only against that which is wrong, but in the hope of advancing that which is right. As the years pass, the memories of your association one with another, and the reflections upon that which transpired in the classroom and the drill field, will probably impress upon you even more than now the confusion of these timos. But out of this confusion will come, as they always do, some men who will not only be useful to the causes that they now serve, but men who will be of greater stature because of the experiences they are now having. Some of these men are members of this class. They are the men who. through their profession, will bring credit to Temple University and distinction to the class with which they were graduated.F. ST.

Within us, so to speak, we carry seed for posterity. We hope that these seed, when planted, will bear righteous fruit. However, as it is with life, evolution lies open to kindred forces, and all that we can hope to do is to do our best, and thereby feel that posterity will gain by our thoughts and deeds. 64aASeS l'  ODYSSEY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS Nine A. M., September 24, 1941, launched the present Junior Class—as weird an assemblage of humans as was ever gathered in any amphitheater—on its stormy career. It took but a short while for us to get on to the routine of the average freshman class, and soon we had changed this routine sufficiently to distinguish us from an average class. Presently, like green troops coming under fire for the first time, the characters of various members of the group blossomed forth in their true hue. One of the first “characters" was Joe Balin, who, although he was not with us long, became, with his protruding sore thumb, an outstanding fixture in the back rows of the lecture halls and the front rows of Temple Stadium. We soon found glib and able salesmen in our midst who supplied us with “useless and antiquated" printed physiology notes. We hear now that Howell is an excellent text. Then came our entrance into the War! On the afternoon of December 8, 1941, we huddled around our portable radios, perched high on the chests of our cadavers in the dissecting room, listening intently to the news reports that were to change the futures of us all. Our services were to be needed very soon; we would have to quicken the tempo of our work, of life itself, so that we might help set the world right again. And so, faced with the prospect of a hard summer's study, due to the accelerated program, with determination we rode the crest of the wave of final exams and, a bit worn, we stood ready to enter our second phase of training. A short respite of a month, found us back again as Sophomores, ready to take up our work where we had left off. Strangely enough, the first semester of this second year passed comparatively uneventfully. This abnormal state of affairs, however, could not last long. Soon, the erstwhile enterprising Dr. Grisbaum, now a strict reformer, began a series of lectures on honesty and the rights of others. As a result of these talks, designed to inspire, create and maintain a high standard of righteousness, he came to us claiming he was missing the following: $3.49 worth of pure 4K gold. 6 lower dentures of the class of 23. 1 nut and bolt from a vulcanite flask. 23A" rubber tubing. 1 slightly used sandpaper disc. 59 complete prosthetic kits (still sealed). V2 doz. retention points. 1 cavity toilet. Diogenes and the good doctor still search in vain! It was during this period that Dr. Mac-Farland began his epoch of reexams ad infinitum. failures ad nauseum. Finally, we all passed Pathology. The year ended in a blaze of glory, when on the warning of the new dean, Mr. Timmons, that the class was much too large, our number was decreased by thirteen. The start of our Junior Year brought us out of the realm of theory and into the world of prophylactic realism. Four months passed before a few hardy souls took the advice of Dr. Rusca, and became acquainted with the clinic floor; but this much-maligned class was saddled with the burdensome handicap of a shady reputation. The faculty grapevine had done its work and each new instructor regarded us with suspicion and wariness. It took many weeks for them to discover that we weren't nearly as bad as we had been painted, and soon, with the able assistance of the Faculty, we came into our own. Thanks to these gentlemen most of 6667ODYSSEY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS us were well on our way to the rapidly approaching finish of our Junior year with no worries other than the 250 points which we had yet to make in Operative, the other three dentures needed for Prosthetics, the total lack of "Pedo points”, the absence of Crown and Bridge, the 84 requirements for Ceramic Technique, and the general dearth of patients, plus the newly acquired Army routine. This class, evidently chosen by fate to be the ugly duckling of the lot, the subjects of innumerable experiments and the victims of freak mishaps, anxiously awaits the passage of the next ten months when, upon graduation, we too may enter the final and highly important phase of our careers. In the course of our years of study at the Dental School, we have heard and noted various nicknames, epithets and phrases connected with certain members of our class contributed from the ranks of both student body and faculty. We have included them at this point that they may sometime in the distant future recall to our minds this happy era so similar to Alice's trip through the looking glass: "Basin Street" Jennie Bernacki, "First Lady” of the Junior Class; A1 Brader—"Jack of all trades and master of none"; Tony "Butch” Butchko—a Tough Bluff; Herbie Cohen—"we had this at ’City’ ”; Dave "Carolina” Bershstein”; Herman "Brownie” Corn; A1 "Alfalfa" Daven; Tony DiSanto—"Doctor, should I worry?"; Bob Easton—"Weber” (see Tasens); Paul Hartman—the Perennial Presidential Candidate; Elliot "Adenoids” Joseph-son; Harold Katz—the Wandering Minstrel of the Diagnostic room; Steve "Scooter" Kiwatisky; Jack Kraus—"What flavor ice cream are we having. Sergeant?"; Herbie "Maggot” Levin; Sy Levy—"Sea Breeze”; Marv Maser—"Marvin, stop!”; "Honest Joe” McTamney; Tibor Moses—. .".....'tis folly to be wise"; Marty Lutzer—Public Enemy No. 1; Ed "Quasimodo” Gross; Les Newman— "They have it in for mo"; Lenny Opack—the little man who is never there; Charley Polay —slow motion, delayed; Joe Pollack—"At ease, men”; Judy Radom—"Marvin, stop!!!”; Flo Taub—"Marvin, stop!!!”; Lenny Taylor— "tearful little earful”; Freddie "Twinkletoes" Weishoff; "Hank" Zultowski — "Poh-h-st”; Murray Tasens—"Field” (see Easton); Ber-nie Unger—"Do you mind if I look it up?”; Joe Cuminale and Frank Fowler—The Gremlins. AN ADVENTURE STORY—"Rehash" There I was, trapped! Ahead of me loomed a hard, unyielding wall of dentine, and behind me were five hungry fusiform bacilli. My buccal offered no retention, while my lingual was well worn away. I was a goner! No way out! What to do?! Suddenly, from my distal came a cute exacerbation, followed by a flood of oxygen insufflation. With a cry of joy I leaped at a passing lymphocyte, and was carried right out of the mouth into the lateral throat form area. By and large, I was free, but the danger of being trapped by a highly polished peench bond, was still imminent. Silence was essential now. I had come too far to fail. Suddenly a dry cusp cracked, a short silence, and then a shot rang out. I felt the sting of the slug and realized I had a sportsman's fracture. This was dangerous, and immediately I was thinking in terms of carcinoma. Would I survive, or would I contract Syndrome or Acute Glomerulonephritis, and die a lingering uremic death? If I got back safely. I know it meant confinement at the Charing Cross 'Ospital for two to five weeks under Dr. Fordyce. 6869ODYSSEY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS With these thoughts in mind I crept away from the spot through the thick undergrowth until I came to a water hole. I dipped my fever-ridden body into its cool depths. Looking up I saw a sign, which read "Those students throwing extracted teeth at passersby will be severely reprimanded and punished, by order of the Dean." This was a sure sign I was close to safety. Finally I came upon our camp site, and just in time, for the roll call was being taken, and a welcoming, "Hi Doc! Where ya' been?”, fell on my ears. I was in bed for a long while, recuperating from my harrowing experience. The Doctor would visit me each day and .say, "I'm teaching you now, it doesn't pay to dissipate. You must be in bed by nine o'clock, so that you can rise by four. Never let a drop of alcohol, not even beer, pass your lips." With this advice in mind I was soon up and around, ready to start plugging again. WE'RE IN THE ARMY NOW We're in the army now. At Meade we learned just how, To make up our bed And scrub till halt dead. We're in the army now. We're in the army now, We came back with this vow, "Good soldiers we'll make While Navy eats cake". We're in the army now. We're in the army now. To orders we will bow, And we'll learn to keep step, Though it takes all our pep. We're in the army now. We're in the army now. Our school comes first—but how? We ache in all joints, We'll never make points. Were in the army now. We're in the army now, An order starts a row. At the sergeant's "At ease!'' Some keep battin' the breeze. We're in the army now. We're in the army now. Our outfit, it's a wow! It knows best one shout, "Battalion-Fall out!" We're in the army now. Were in the army now, Ice cream comes not at chow. We all stand in a line, "Doc" looks for the sign. We're in the army now. We're in the army now. Soon, on us they will endow An officer's bar, Maybe someday a star, We're in the army now. Citation—The following men have distinguished themselves on the field of drill by rugged individualism above and beyond the call of the sergeant, and are recommended for the Order of the Green Compound and the Silver Amalgam with copper band cluster: Sidney Berkowitz; David Castner; Herbert Cohen; Joseph Goldstone; Bernard Greenberg; Steve Kiwatisky; Jack Kraus; Leonard Ledwitz; Arthur Meadow; Leonard Opack; Dominic Piccolella; Walter Schlam; Frederic Weishoff; Richard Zwillinger; Murray Tasens; Denwyn Allen; Millard Coper; Lawrence Throne; Joseph Pollack; Sante Anthony Di Santo; Coleman J. Moffett. 7071THE SAGA OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Editors work laboriously for originality— something new, something different. But here the difficulty is alleviated by the birth of a mutation—a conception fertilized by the seed of Mars. These few pages are in reality an appendage which has grown under the assumption that we sophomores may never have a year book of our own. As we look down the roll call, it becomes readily apparent that here is truly a strange conglomeration of personalities. Now take: Pacey Cohen who is a great talker. That's why he's in trouble with General Walker. But there are times when silence reigns. Oh Morpheus! God of divine sleep. List to our tale: Your kingdom is safe—Shpeen will never fail! Oh yes! We have our doubting Thomas' too. There's the guy who has no fears. He's the guy with foolish ideas. The one who's contrary to Dr. Herman, The nev? McGehee—Joseph Sherman. But we have our "yes" men too, for: Brown as a nut is Aaron Schlecter. At Fort Meade, a woman was a poor race detector. But anyone knows the true story— The sun doesn't shine in Dr. G's laboratory. And in between: There's Jack Graham with little concern, He finds things too simple to bother to learn. His cryptic papers are the stuff— That's why some obstacles aren't so tough. But perhaps we are giving an erroneous impression. Indeed, it cannot be said that we are shallow creatures. What better proof of our professional idealism could be found than that exhibited so spontaneously in the pharmacology laboratory? Surely it was the betterment of mankind we had in mind when we mutilated ourselves with needles, probes, acids, caustics, and escharotics. Or was it masochism that prompted this noble sacrifice? Lovers are many among us, but primarily: You've heard of Casanova, And Romeo too; Temple gives you Lou Malkin Our little boy blue. As a frosh Ed Kerner was quiet and shy. Gosh what a uniform can do to a guy. Pacey Cohen is in misery Because Rapaport's sister he never shall see. For things went a little too far When Danny's meals dwindled below par. Stan Platt will go through life With Roy Ullnick as his wife. 7273THE SAGA OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS The army made many changes. After eight the boys face dangers: He rants and raves until you're drippy, That despotic Sergeant H. T. Lippe. For a guy who can talk and act so bossy. Fort Meade's star K.P. was Anthony J. Rossi. It looks like a case for the military police. For our class has its bullys. If R. Goodfriend doesn't stop Pushing H. Goodman around the lot. Odds and ends from our rhyming dictionary: Poopsie Grubin is quite a fellow. On a windy day, he reminds you of Jello. The question that feeds on our minds like a germ Is whether Dave Silberman wants a third term. Muskin, Fein, Berenson, and Basch Live in a house that's filled with trash. In all the tales of evil stealth That you can buy with hidden wealth, You'll never find a craftier possum Like that spitball fiend—Philly Rossum. Morty Marcus could never decide Where that guy malleolus ever did hide. Tell me students—do you think it's true? That Weiner takes notes in Red's too. Steve Panetti can make you squawk When he starts that double talk. But in physiology it came in handy. His answers in quiz sure were dandy. At Temple there are fellows who bluster and blow, Sklaroff and Shore, from Penn you know. Harry Lutz, we all feel sure, Will some day be mature. He'll find things that are above His many cases of puppy love. Windy Williams claims that life is just hell, Shall we blame it on Temple, or on old Citadel? Millet has searched on the quiet For the weight Robinson lost on his diet. Carlo Sbarra and Schacterle Are as close as two can be Carl cleaned his test tubes because they were such friends, But when it comes to final grades, he'll get it in the end. Walter Schuman has a trailer wide That makes him difficult to pass. It's big and round and hard to hide, But only God can make a tree! Herb Ilgowsky's a silent lad. It certainly makes us glad To have a fellow as fine as he To share our company. Our sophomore versatility Isn't just poetry. So let us no longer suppose. And finish the story in prose. 7475THE SAGA OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Oh yes, versatility is certainly a word that can be applied to us. Take Elliot Oxen-berg, for example. In addition to his dental education, he's picking winners for Suffolk Downs. And what of Alex Katz? Can anyone deny his right to philosophical fame by virtue of his guiding axiom: ’Put off until tomorrow what you can worry about today!" How many of you fellows know of Tom McGinniss' special consultations with the dental school faculty? Could it be that he's going to be the new physiology and pharmacology laboratory expert? The latest rumor—note this Bill Millet—is that Joe Rozum is seriously considering taking his equipment out of the packages in which they came. Before concluding this panorama, something should be said of our class dance. This was something of an innovation as no such thing had been done in the past by any class. Thought up and engineered by our precedent-breaking class president, the dance was held in the beginning of the first semester of this year. It was solely for our class—and was well attended with a truly enjoyable time had by all. Something was started that will be followed through with the regularity that is born out of real satisfaction. Ably handled under the chairmanship of Stan Ascher, it is serving already as a model for future affairs. In termination, we, as sophomores and future brothers of the graduating class, would like to state our “bon voyage" to the seniors. You men are graduating from us into a world tom with strife. May you maintain your strength of fibre which is sorely needed by this green earth. May you uphold yourselves as good men with a noble ideal, best served by the practice of your new profession. We know your ability to do so. God bless you. 7677THE DRAMA OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS A DRAMA IN FOUR ACTS Act I—Freshman Year Time.....February 16, 1943—October, 1943 Place....................Buttonwood Alley Players. .. .90 men and a girl, the Dean and Faculty at Temple Dental School. Prologue: From various parts of the coun- try, such as the states of Brooklyn, Pennsylvania, and points south, east, west and north, ninety men and a girl assembled on a bleak wintry morn in February. This was their initiation into a dental education. We Freshmen take time out, now, to pray that our graduation shall not be as bleak as the day of our initiation—or, "We shall not have died in vain”. Act I—Scene I The 1st Freshman: Gee, I'm scared. 2nd Freshman: Gee me too! 3rd Freshman: That makes three of us. From the gallery: What do you mean three! Ninety-one! Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores: ‘'You'll be sorry!" And so the year started. A month elapses and we hear the same three freshmen in a very enlightening conversation. 1st Freshman: Hya Jerk! 2nd Freshman: You mean me, Jerk! 3rd Freshman: Gee that makes 3 of us! From the gallery: What do you mean three! Ninety-one! Scene II Place...........................Upper Amp. Time........1:01, Monday, March 21, 1943 Chiel speaker.........Dr. Timmons—Dean Chief listeners.........................Us Dr. Timmons: Gentlemen and Miss Cramer: We will now take up L. R. (Latrine rumor) N.1768-i.e. Subject the Army. ’’You gentlemen will not be commissioned Captains as rumored. The time gentlemen is now 1:36 ¥2 and I have not received any further information, therefore we will meet next week. Tublin: Hey Mallis, did you hear, we are not going to be made Captains—Majors! Mallis: Tublin, are you sure? Knast: Wise up fellas, I think— Sammarlino: Who said you knew how to think. Loscalso: To think. That bring to mind— (To the audience: He is one of the few with a mind.) The class now leaves the upper amp. and the conversation changes as it usually does to the engrossing topic of women. Fife: (in a squeaky tone): "Do you mean to say that you fellows can go out with a girl on Saturday night and spend less than $30? Trozzo: My dear Fife. In Brooklyn if it cost you more than $1.00 you ought to get shot. All Hoar. Hear. And the curtain falls, with the fellows in a heated discussion, as they walk into Reds, to try to influence Red to give them some of the dean's private stock of cokes. Scene III Place...........................Lower Amp. Time.....................9:00 Wednesday The scene opens, and we hear one of our favorite Profs, lecturing on his favorite theme. "Now look here you birds, do I have to write those notes for you—I wanted it all down because pretty soon now, I am going to want it all back, just as I gave it to you. This is from the tongue of our Faculty Advisor and good friend, Dr. Schacterle. Robinson: (In a scared tone): "Say fel- lows do you think the exam will be next week? Hey! Mallis, find out will you? Reichman: Don't listen to him, but if you find out Sam, let me know. Kaplan Me too. And so the period ends and the fellows go back to Reds, to try again to have him give them a coke from Dr. Timmon's private stock —No dice. Scene IV Place...........................Upper Amp. Time.........1 P. M. or thereabouts, Monday Dr. Faggart: "The History of Dentistry.” Mike Cohen: "It's a bird.” Felice: "It's a plane." Gorman: "Its a rat.” 7879THE DRAMA OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS There is an uproar in the class and we hear the following calm statement: Goldanna Cramer Sissies! We take this opportunity to apologize to Dr. Faggart for this uncalled for outbreak. Scene V Time......Anytime from 8 A. M. to 5 P. M. Place. . .Reds Stand (a girl from ITE passes) Wian: "Scout that fellows, scout that." Doriman: "Now take my girl friend." Rosen "You take her." Wolfer I like them tall. Goode: I like them small. Simpkins I like them. Chart: After seeing you with Minerva, you'd take anything. Isler: "Is that nice.” Kellman (Sigh): "If there were only a trolley stop on Buttonwood." Gerren "Hey fellows, he's taking the roll." There is a mad rush up to the Operative Lab, and once more Buttonwood Alley is quiet. Scene VI Time...........Too early Tuesday Morning Place.....................Operative Lab. Weiss: “Dr. Faggart, can I go down to get you some cough drops?” Steier: "How about checking off this 3rd Molar.” (The rest of the class is doing cuspids.) Wisniewski: "Hey fellows, my upper 2nd bicuspid finally came out." As a few fellows shovel away the soap chips a head appears and we hear a triumphant voice exclaiming for all to hear, "I did it,” "I did it." Matthews: Dr. Mervine do you want to carve the first 16 teeth for me and I'll polish them and put in the root canals." Mones "Root Canals? That's my specialty." (The job really belongs to Martin, who is so good he can carve root canals in soap teeth—and does.) Lubin "Anybody got an upper 1st bicuspid?” Ockman: I'll trade you for a lower second. Simler: Anybody want an upper first molar, I have an extra one. Rosenberg Gimme. Zito: "It started all over again.” Dr. Dubois takes the roll and the curtain falls on an empty lab. and one freshman falls on another heading down the steps for Reds. Scene VII Time. ... ................Right after Reveille Place. ... Buttonwood Alley. (We have just finished picking up cigarette butts.) Bruni: (a real soldier): Sergeants, dis- miss your platoons. Chester 4th platoon, stand fast. If you fellows don't watch your step you will drill at 6 A. M. Felice: What again, I couldn't make it last time, how am I going to make it this time? Rubin: I'm going to get a letter from my doctor because I'm going to be sick. Cohn: I am sick. Cohen: Can't you fellows take it? Chase: What are you, a hard guy? Behrens I'd rather run around the track Fried They can't do that to me. Fishbein: My mother told me there would be days like these. Scene VIII Time.....................................Any morning Place........................... In the Amp. President: May I have your attention! (From different parts of the Amp. these statements are heard): Who's he? Is he kidding? Why doesn't he just take the roll and sit down? Bomba At ease, men, at ease. President: We are going to have an exam in------- Biondo: Have it postponed. Glickstein: See if you can have classes called for the day; so we can study. (The class quiets down and, the roll is taken.) Arroyo: May I change my seat now? Coyne: (he came in late): 16 is present! 16 is present! Dr. Miller now walks in and asks Miss Cramer to lead the class in song. Miss Cramer: Any suggestions? Grimaldi: How about "strip polka?" 8081THE DRAMA OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS Diamond: No, sing "Roll Out the Barrel.” Glaudel Let's sing over there. And so we do! Scene: the 9th Time.............................Before an exam Place....................................Any Amp. Kessler: Know your stuff, fellows? Friedteld: Oh, I read the stuff superficially, but I know it cold. Finkelstein: There is nothing to worry about. Dicker (class brain): If you've read the stuff it's easy. Kramer: The three of us are ready. Shairon: Which three? Kramer: Me, myself, and I! The exam starts, and after an hour the mourning line exits mumbling things of this sort: Levien: We have two hours and twenty- seven minutes until our next class. What about taking in a movie? Silverstein: What again? Gordon: To make things worse, when are you guys going to pay your dues? Goldstick (hesitantly): How do you think you made out fellows? Wiener: I may have made one mistake. Termini: It was pretty tough. Sullivan: I've taken harder ones. Reis: What say, let's not talk about it until we get the grades back. Tublin: Anybody got a cigarette? The conversation fades out as the fellows leave the building and cross the street. "No dice,” cries Red, as the boys again try to have the red-headed restaurateur give them some of the "Dean's cokes.” Some of the Class personalities who are now seen leaving the building are as follows: Bowman and Blackwell—Damon and Pythias. A. Chester—watching the flames rise in pros, lab.: "Pretty, aren't they?” Chowstowski—"They call me ’smiles'.” Di Petrillo—does a whale of a job straightening his squad, for which he may receive the Congressional medal. Irv. Fox—where did he get that walk? Carl Goodman—what is it? Sol Grandi—a great guy, but henpecked. Hare—on the ball both in school and in extra-curricular activities. Kaufman—has lowered the draft age for women from 15 to 12 (c'est la guerre). Mazzola—Chief of the Park Patrol. Mogel—can get nylon hose cheap—one pint of blood. Reich—smooth in prosthetics. Reii—what has he got that gets the Sergeant? Rikofl—a one woman man. Roeck—why the rush to Ocean City? Salkind—any similarity between an officer and Sid is purely coincidental. Schwartz—quiet, but effective. Jimmy Stewart—another good guy by that name. Vickness—our angel with a heart of gold. Weintraub—Scranton born, Scranton bred, and when he "ain't” no more, Scranton dead. Yampolsky—"Eh, vots op, doc?” And so, the curtain on this act will fall on October 16, 1943, when our final exams have been taken. The curtain will again rise for our second act on October 25, an eight month drama entitled "Sophomore Year”. Whether the end will be a happy one depends on our faculty. To our faculty: "Will it be a happy ending?” A certain member of our Class was unable to be with us at the end of our Act I. The reason is that he, Biondo, had to return to his father's farm to help raise the food that is needed to supply our armed forces and our Allies.

In order for a student to be eligible for such membership he must show: a desire for membership, high scholastic standing, excellent moral character, and exemplary conduct. Throughout the school year monthly meetings convene, at which time, four Senior members of the Society present medical and laboratory reports of two clinical cases. The cases are then discussed by Dr. Kolmer. Through our Honorary President's untiring efforts, a prominent man of the allied professions is secured as a guest speaker. Timely subjects relative to the dental profession are presented. With the approval of the Honorary President, Dr. Kolmer, and the officers of the Society, each member—upon graduation —receives a diploma. These diplomas are presented at a banquet, which is the concluding activity of the society for the school year. The goal that we seek in performing our society activities is that of furthering our education. With the fine character of Dr. John A. Kolmer as our inspiration and guide, we believe that the society holds and merits a cherished position in the carrying out of the principle of enhancing the students' education with this type of extra-curricular activity. KOLMER SOCIETY The John A. Kolmer Honorary Medical Society was initiated in November, 1936. Dr. John A. Kolmer, Professor of Medicine both at the dental and medical schools, is the founder of the society and. was instrumental in the preparation of its constitution. There is a two-fold purpose which governs all the society functions: the first, to promote understanding and cooperation between the medical and dental professions; secondly, to enable dentists to recognize general dis- 86CAMERON SOCIETY Dr. James R. Cameron instituted his Department of Oral Surgery in 1933. For the interest of those who delved deeply into the current problems of surgery Dr. Cameron and a group of men planned and organized a society for the promotion and cultivation of an earnest study of these problems, by the presentation and discussion of practical cases. It was the plan of its founders, a few of whom are well known members of our faculty, to accept twenty-five men each year. They in turn invite the same number of men whose scholastic aptitudes are above average and in this manner a constant flow of members have been entering the portals of this very popular society. The James R. Cameron Society of Oral Surgery extends its sincere wishes for good luck and God Speed to the Class of October, '43. 87RUSCA SOCIETY The F. St. Elmo Rusca Society of Operative Dentistry was organized during the years of 1932-33. The first official meeting was held January 19, 1933, with forty-four charter members present. The founders and first officers of the so ciety were: Honorary President.........F. St. Elmo Rusca President...................William J. Kelly Vice-President..............Michael F. Quinn Secretary................Cecelia B. Karboski Treasurer....................Joseph E. Ewing The organization began its second year of activities and made rapid progress by adding a goodly number of members, so that today it is one of the largest and most active societies at the Dental School. To fulfill Dr. Rusca’s wish, the Society is open to both Junior and Senior students so that the monthly meetings serve to coordinate both classes with their work and to give them a better foundation for their practice after graduation. The basic aim of the Society is to promote added interest in all phases of Operative Dentistry; bring in outside speakers to deal with the Dental and scientific subjects over and above that given here in instructions; to develop friendships and personality that will benefit us in later years, and to give teacher and student a better opportunity to know each other. 88 JAMES SOCIETY Dr. James came to Temple University Dental School in 1927 by accepting the position which he holds today as Professor of Histopathology. Three years alter his orientation he recognized a keen and profound interest prevailing among the students in his classes and as a result instituted the society carrying his name. The members, who are chosen from the highest quintile of the Junior Class, are given the opportunity to visit the County Medical Society, and the North Philadelphia Dental Association, for the purpose of expanding their interest in practical problems of oral and dental pathology. The Society has done much to cultivate the enthusiasm of its members by having informal round table discussions with reputed men in this field, and the extra knowledge gained by the Society members as a result has proven invaluable to the successes that each of these men have made of their practices. 89The Temple Dental Review, quarterly publication of our school, is for the first time since its inception in 1933, functioning under the newly inaugurated Army and Navy program. The magazine which, until last year, was combined with the Alumni Publication, the "Garrettsonian”, includes among its pages scientific essays of dental interest submitted by students, news of the activities and plans of the faculty, and of honor societies and fraternities. Leon A. Halpern, Class of '14, Professor of Clinical Dentistry, and Faculty Advisor to the Review Staff, continues as he has in the past, to give them the benefit of his valuable advice and criticism. Our former Alumni Editor and Editor of the "Garretsonian”, Lieutenant David K. Waldman, '34, is now serving with the Army. During this national emergency, the Temple Dental Review is being sent to many of our alumni at the various Army and Navy posts throughout the United States, thus serving as a link between our school and its graduates. 90 STUDENT COUNCIL Dr. G.

This is a governing body of men chosen from the members of the four classes. The object of the Council is to secure better harmony among the classes and to promote general welfare. Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month in the Dean's office; the Dean presiding. Growing in prestige as the years pass, we humbly believe that in the future, the Student Council will enhance its role as a legislative, executive and, judiciary body. 91OMICRON KAPPA UPSILON Omicron Kappa Upsilon had its inception in 1914 at Northwestern University Dental School. The Kappa Kappa Chapter was organized in 1937 at Temple University Dental School by Dean I. N. Broomell and eight members of the professorial staff as Charter Members. Alumni Membership is limited to no more than 12% of the graduating class, conditional upon scholarship and character.

Many of these men have contributed greatly to the national organization of dentistry and its educational advancement. There have been eleven Psi Omegans as President of the American Dental Association, and now, Grand Master J. Ben Robinson is currently the President. The head of the Army Dental Corps is Brigadier General Robert H. Mills, also a member of Psi Omega. Psi Omega was a charter member of the Professional Interfraternity Conference and for many years the only dental fraternity in that organization. Many changes have taken place since our modest start, for we have prospered and contributed much to the dental profession. 95ALPHA OMEGA It was in the year 1907, that the dental students of Baltimore and Philadelphia got together and formed the framework of Alpha Omega Fraternity. In 1931, Alpha Omega merged with Alpha Zeta Gamma Fraternity, and the resultant organization retained the name of the former body. These mergers were beneficial and strengthening, for today we are proud to relate that we have thirty-four undergraduate chapters througout the United States and Canada. We also distinguish ourselves by possessing eighteen alumni chapters. Alpha Omega was organized upon the basis of fraternalism, character and high scholarship. During these past years, we Alpha Omegans have continued along these high ideals, always striving to bring more honor to our fraternity. Today many of our fraternity members are in the armed service, while we in the undergraduate chapter have also done our part by the presentation of dental ambulances to the United States Army. This is only one indication of our loyalty to our country, fraternity, and to ourselves. It is in this spirit that we function. 96XI PSI PHI XI PSI PHI FRATERNITY was founded February 8, 1889, at Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was organized by a small group of men who, in spite of opposition to the fraternity by the faculty, persevered and overcame this obstacle so that Xi Psi Phi might become a reality. Xi Psi Phi Fraternity was founded on three simple principles: knowledge, morality and friendship. They declared its purpose to be the provision of a better, more substantial foundation on which to build a successful professional life; to create a desire for a cleaner, healthier atmosphere in which to live; and to develop an appreciation of wonderful qualities of friendship and hospitality. From this small nucleus, Xi Psi Phi Fraternity has expanded into one of the largest dental fraternities, amassing thirty-one chapters and exceeding 14,000 members. To this day, the zeal in which she has been nurtured has been carried on, overcoming all obstacles and flourishing in each of her members. 97SIGMA EPSILON DELTA To Dr. Arthur V. Greenstein went the honor of conceiving the idea from whence Sigma Epsilon Delta Fraternity emanated. During the summer of 1901, the fraternity had its inception at the New York College of Dentistry. It now ranks among the best and most active dental fraternities in the country. Sacrifice, education and devotion are the aims and ideals extended to its members. The Delta Chapter at Temple University School of Dentistry is proud of the fact that since its inauguration in 1923 it has risen among the ranks until now it is considered the "top'' chapter. Scholastically and socially the chapter takes a back seat to none on the campus. The group this year has been working harmoniously, and great achievements have been accomplished which lead us ever nearer to the highest standards of frater-nalism and dentistry. 98FRATERNAL FROTH The past year at the Theta Ramach chapter of Alpha Omega has been full of both pleasant and progressive events. The house of AO at 2215 Green St. went in for a bit of renovation last summer. We created a new Club Room, which has proved very conducive to relaxation and merriment. Of further importance is the installation of our new laboratory—a highly adequate area that has been of value to the men of the House. During the course of the year, a year universally beset by the cares and vicissitudes that come with war. Alpha Omega felt that fun and frolic were not amiss, and that laughter was needed to blot out sorrow. With this view in mind, we prepared social functions in the form of parties, a reception smoker, and an induction affair. The comedy and antics of two of our Senior members, diminutive Hal Berlin and lanky Chas. Gordon presented that spark of spontaneity to our gatherings. "Boy-Scout” Maser, "Sow-song” Grubin, and the brilliant voice of Les Newman afforded lots of entertainment at our House. Dan Cupid arrowed well and, Art Zoller, Manny Nathanson, and Herb Jenoff succumbed to the marriage potion. And “Papa” Minkin found cause for happiness in the tiny form of baby Barbara. Phil Levin, our President, officiated at our bi-monthly meetings. Lampert handled the money and managed House chores capably. We can barely attempt to place in writing the joys and benefits we derived from fraternal life. The values are incalculable; they are wrapped up in a thousand and one memories. Now, our October class is graduating, and each man in the group is prepared to give his services above and beyond the call of duty. We wish them all God speed, and ask each one to feel and know that Alpha Omega will always be beside her sons wherever they may be. To these men, our graduating fraters, we wish good luck: Phil Levin, Harry Goldstein, Morton Lehman, Harold Berlin, Bob Weissman, Art Zoller, Jack Mishkin, Charles Gordon, Joe Fischer, Phil Richman, Ralph Goldstein, foe Kudish, Herb Jenoff. Bernard Gross, Norman Goldberg, Abe Lampert, Wallace Hirsch-berg, Sam Hahn and Manny Nathanson. The Gamma Chapter is the third oldest chapter of the Xi Psi Phi Fraternity which since its inception in 1889 has spread to all leading Dental Schools of this country and Canada. Needless to say, the majority of our recent alumni are prominent in the various branches of military service, where they hold ranks of dignity and distinction. We are particularly proud of Brother Fred Molt, who is the first dental officer in the history of the United States Naval Reserve Dental Corps to be awarded the four stripes of Captaincy. Here at Temple the Zips have always followed the policy of carefully selecting members—seeking men worthy of the Xi Psi Phi Principles of "Knowledge. Morality, and Friendship.” Among the Zips in our class was Jim Graham, of the New York City Grahams, who brought with him the dapper, collegiate spirit of his Alma Mater, New Hampshire University. He was the genial fellow with the ever-ready smile and the latest information on equestrian activities at Garden State and Jamaica. Edward Lescoe, a Wesleyan graduate from Connecticut, was the fourth floor mainstay of the Zip House. Ed's proudest boast is that during his tenure as Treasurer and House Manager in his Junior Year, the Zips were able, not only to renovate the House, but also to hold a dinner at McAllister's to which members, local Alumni, and pledges were invited free of charge. Jerry Whitmoyer, hailing from Harrisburg and holding a Gettysburg degrees was the quiet member of the trio. He was meticulous in his work and absolutely calm despite circumstances, Professors, or exigencies of military training. He will live long and will never gray! Jerry served as Recording Secretary to the Gamma Chapter in his Junior Year. Senior Psi Omegans this year found life at Temple Dental a bit different than it has been in the past. The first and most trying was the five compulsory "eight o'clocks" each week. No more sleeping until noon, as had been in the past. But there is always a bright side—"Willie” Herzog managed to stay at the house four nights a week! Our gain was North Wales' loss. Senior clinics started, and Mast was conspicuous by his absence. Perhaps he was a bit provoked by the results obtained by his Junior Year spectacle. J. J. Kozlowski was hep to porcelain inlays about that time. "Thirty points a sitting is the easiest way thru school”, quoth he. And Skip Kotanchik was busy with his "78 from Essig” set-up device. And speaking of set-ups. Dr. White, the pride and joy of the Navy, did twelve of them before Dr. 99Essig was satisfied for a check off. Carl Russ soon became class treasurer and started canvassing us for class dues. Bert Imholz managed to round up a few Green Street kids to get his Pedo points. How he did it, we don't know, but maybe it's a fatherly way coming out in him. Galdieri took our prize in that department the morning he had a different Pedo patient in each half hour. In the late spring it got to the point where Crandall, the "fright-wig kid," became known as a home wrecker, but not in the sense of breaking down doors. If the lazy Irishman Blaney ever dies of exhaustion, it won't be due to the lack of regular afternoon naps. But we must remember, he’s still a growing boy! Besides being chief of the Student Council, Matt Dunleavy has found out—the hard way—how things are running out at Garden State. Young Harrington has slowly brought himself around to forsaking all others and it appears that before long, down that aisle he will trod. They say Hedges still believes in the inate goodness of mankind. Social life seems to have steadily dropped and reached a very low ebb this year. Crandall did bring in some friends from Beaver, the college that's built on a bluff and run on the same principle, but all agreed that he had his eyes closed and with that the matter was dropped. The outstanding function of the year was a Dinner-Dance held at Mc-Callister's on May 28th. It will be remembered as one of the nicest ever and probably the last for the duration. Dr. Forbes was toastmaster, and Dr. Lord the honored alumnus. Even though it was held on a Saturday, it certainly was the Lord's day. And so we are all looking forward to the 22nd of October after which one may find nine of us on the Army Field, and three on the high seas. Wherever we go we'll hold high the honor and tradition of Psi Omega. Fraternally as well as scholastically our Sedeltans may hold their heads high with pride because we have seriously given our efforts to connect professionalism and frater-nalism in a tight bond of friendship. Our men, through the school years, have been good students and shall, God willing, carry the dental profession far into the deserving ranks of the distinguished where it belongs. To the Seniors in our fraternity we pay special tribute: "Ease" Messer twice refused the Mastership of the Fraternity in favor of more responsible and harder duties. He is one of the vertebrae in the backbone of Delta Chapter. An accomplished musician, Dave Keil has taken the fraternity as well as the Dentistry into his heart. His fiery ambition should guarantee his entrance into the sacred realm of Oral Surgery. Ralph Tomases is the most logical and rational minded man in the group. Keen to analyze pro's and con's his decisive conclusions bring about prompt action. Bernie Evans, in our opinion, is a top man scholastically, and his ability as an operator rates a gold star with any. Wit and abundant personality single him out as a fine fellow. Arnie Kauffman is a rare character equal to any situation that he might get himself into. His spontaneous sense of humor is placed aside once something is considered important and requires action. Outspoken in manner he commands the respect of his colleagues and instructors. Joe Rabin is one of the fastest men in the clinic, hasty but not wasty, he carries his speed into his relationships with the fair sex. Tall, smooth A1 Baer has fashioned for himself a life at the Riviera and Miami Beach. His engaging personality and good dentistry will assure his success as a practitioner. Samuel Haskewitz soliloquizes: To work or not to work! Whether 'tis better for the soul to suffer the hurts and worries of outrageous study, or to take arms against the sea of trouble and end them by forgetting them. His appreciation of his "Constant Nymph" will make him a good husband. A more versatile man than Stan Spiro does not haunt the catacombs of 18th and Buttonwood. Stan was always a morale booster at the frat, and we hope to laugh with him at our first reunion after the war. The two personalities of lack Dreyfuss, the sedate and the sharp are all part of an intricate psychology that he uses to good advantage. Spector is round and affable, a ball of good nature and fun. Red Bieler is a very hard earnest worker, and has never taken a back seat in any of his undertakings. "Persistence" the prophet said, and Bernie Greenberg is a model follower of this proverb. Quick to think and act is "Black Bernie". To get along in Philadelphia it is a positive must to know Sid Saull. He is the gateway to a good time and real hospitality. Joe Tuffiash, for the past 3V2 years has had one struggle after another to prove that he is as good a man as we know him to be. "Tuffy" is the man to call when a difficult case needs proper and immediate attention. At first we thought that Jerry Xavier Olt-man's six foot four frame was due to some endocrine disturbance, but now we realize that he needs every inch for storing the facts that his agile brain learns and retains. ICOThese women, the Oral Hygienists, take their place side by side with us in the performance of duties so vital to our country at this time. They now join the vast and growing army of health guardians in the fight against disease through which the citizens of this land may enjoy its full heritage!

I say '’preliminary" because the instruction you have received is only the foundation on which to build your future. Every day will give you some new experience—some new knowledge. Try to fix in your mind the essential details of each day's work that they may be a guide to you in the weeks to come. You are a privileged group, indeed, to be entering the active field of Oral Hygiene at this time. For the first time the Army and Navy are giving recognition to the hygienist as a professional woman and, as I write this, word has come that commissions are now available in the Navy. It is my sincere wish that success and happiness will attend your every effort. Most sincerely, MARGARET A. BAILEY Supervisor—Oral Hygiene Dept. To the Oral Hygiene Class of 1943: It is with great pleasure that I send you this word of greeting. Permit me to congratulate you upon the completion of training in a profession as Dental Hygiene, and yet I should not say completion, but rather it is just the beginning, and may you ever be keeping in touch with your Alumni, State and National organizations wherever you may be. Again I say congratulations and best wishes to each of you. Sincerely, RUTH M. HECK 103MILDRED O. DANKEL Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Mildred lives at 122 E. Smith Street, Topton, Penna.

McQuillen and his assistants, the Doctors C. A. Kingsbury, J. Foster Flagg, Thomas Wardell and Henry Morton. After being located at 108-110 North 10th Street for twenty-four years, large quarters were found necessary and so in 1887 larger and better quarters were found on Cherry Street below 18th, in association with the Medico-Chirurgical College, with each institution retaining its individual identity. There the school remained and grew in prominence until 1896, when grounds were purchased at 18th and Buttonwood Streets and a new school building was erected, the cornerstone being laid with Masonic ceremonies on January 13th, 1897. The new building having a frontage of 200 feet on Buttonwood Street with a clear and unobstructed northern light. The building and equipment were considered the most modern and up-to-date for the teaching of Dentistry at that time. The Philadelphia Dental College being the first institution to include the study and practice of Oral Surgery, now had ample space to include an operating room and ward in the furtherance of this new specialty. This alone was enough to attract world wide attention to the school which was now known as the Philadelphia Dental College and Hospital of Oral Surgery. Further growth of the institution necessitated an appropriation being sought from the state, the granting of which made possible the erection of a hospital building lo- cated on Hamilton Street adjoining the college. This new building was said to be the only hospital in the United States devoted to the specialty of Oral Surgery and was named in honor of Dr. James E. Garret-son. who was the father of Oral Surgery and for many years Dean of the Philadelphia Dental College when it was located at 18th and Cherry Streets. In 1907 the Philadelphia Dental College and the Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery were, by mutual agreement, taken over by Temple University. This consolidation resulted in the inauguration of one of the finest professional institutions in the country. There was no great change in the physical makeup of the school or the personnel of the faculty until 1918, when an almost complete reorganization took place. Then Dr. Simeon H. Guilford was made Dean Emeritus and Dr. I. Norman Broomell was elected Dean and given full power to reconstruct the faculty and the following appointments were made: Dr. L. Ashley Faught as Professor of Operative Dentistry; Dr. Norman S. Essig as Professor of Prosthetic Dentistry; Dr. C. Barton Addie, Professor of Crown and Bridge-work and Orthodontia; Dr. T. C. Casto, Professor of Roentgenology; Dr. Alfred H. Haas as Professor of Minor Oral Surgery; Dr. St. 114Elmo Rusca as Assistant Professor of Operative Dentistry; Dr. Charles F. Wilbur, Associate Professor of Prosthetic Dentistry, and Dr. Joseph Beiser, Assistant Professor of Operative Dentistry. Among those unaffected by the reorganization were the Doctors Russel, Hewson, Inglis and Scott—Professors of Oral Surgery, Anatomy, Pathology and Physiology respectively. In recent years many physical changes have taken place in the school—the building formerly occupied by the Garretson Hospital, which is separate and apart from the main College building, is now used to accommodate the various scientific laboratories and the School of Oral Hygiene. The administration offices are located on Spring Garden Street, from which thoroughfare the main entrance to the campus and college building is located. It may be added here that the Philadelphia Dental College began with a nucleus of eleven students and six faculty members. Today as the Temple University Dental School it has a student body of over four hundred men and women and about seventy-five faculty members. The School of Oral Hygiene commenced with but one young lady and today has an average class of twenty-five eager Hygienists to be. In the passage of time P.D.C. has grown from a small school to a large, modernly equipped, nationally recognized institution. Although the Dental curriculum has undergone a complete change, the building stands on its original site, where men and women enter to learn and go forth to serve. The founders of our Institution were among the pioneers in the field of oral surgery, and today the spirit of their guidance and instruction bears out their convictions of the extreme importance of this specialized healing art. The function and value of the present day oral surgeon both in civilian and army life can not be too greatly stressed. The armed forces are employing the skill of these men to save many lives and to restore function and esthetics to our casualties. We may be justly proud of the record that has been made at Temple University School of Dentistry in the field of Oral Surgery. Progress has been marked and the results have been constructive to the highest degree. In paying tribute to the men who established the degree of efficiency and service rendered by Oral Surgery in our institution, we place on the roll call of honor the names of: Dr. James E. Garretson; Dr. Henry C. Boenning; Dr. Carlton N. Russell; Dr. James R. Cameron. Under the leadership of these men oral surgery at Temple developed into its present high state of proficiency. Skilled in technique and wise in their planning, they started and pursued policies that weathered all opposition and criticism, resulting in the establishing as an integral part of the dental profession the practice of Oral Surgery. 115DR. JAMES E. GARRETSON. whose name is synonymous with Oral Surgery throughout the world, gave the dental profession its first specialty. He began teaching oral surgery at the Philadelphia Dental College in 1866, and hold clinics before the class on Saturdays from twelve to one in the afternoon. About ten years later he founded the first hospital of Oral Surgery and the name of the school was then changed to the Philadelphia Dental College and Hospital of Oral Surgery. In 1869 Dr. Garretson published the first works on “Diseases and Surgery of the Mouth and Jaws and Associated Parts" and this book was immediately adopted by the ten dental collegos thon in existence. Dr. Garretson and some professional associates organized the Medico-Chirurgical Hospital with which the Philadelphia Dental College and Hospital of Oral Surgery was affiliatod. It was at this institution that Dr. Garretson did his great surgical work which was attracting the attention of both the dental and the medical professions. It has been said that his surgical clinics were attended by moro guest physicians and dentists than students. It was at this timo that Dr. Garrotson was Dean of the Dontal School. Ho was a most unusual man and bosidos being a great surgeon and anatomist, he contributed more than a hundred articles to the Dental Cosmos alone, and wrote six books on philosophy. He died in 1895, but the greatness of his work will always bo rocognizod in the books of the Dental and Medical professions. DR. HENRY C. BEONNING, succeeded Dr. Garretson as Professor of Anatomy and Oral Surgery at the Philadelphia Dental College in 1895. Two years later the Dental School and Hospital of Oral Surgery severed their relation with the Medico-Chirurgical College and Hospital on Cherry Street and moved to their new building at the present sito. The Hospital of Oral Surgery occupied most of the first floor of the main building, now tho Klahr Children's Dontal Clinic, and the name of the school was again changed to Philadelphia Dental College and Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery in honor of the founder of the hospital. In a short time the hospital facilities proved inadequate and new accommodations had to be secured and an appropriation for the construction of a new building was obtained from the State. Dr. Boenning graduated from Jefferson Medical College and was director of the Philadelphia School of Anatomy from 1883 to 1896; taught Surgical Anatomy at the Medico-Chirurgical College from 1886 until 1895 as well as holding many other positions of prominence. Dr. Boenning did much towards developing the Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery by performing many operations in his specialty before classes and privately. Dr. Boonning died in 1907, but his namo remains known and respected by the professions with which ho was associated. 116DR. CARLTON N RUSSELL succeeded Dr. Boenning as Oral Surgeon to the Philadelphia Dental College and Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery. The Garret-son Hospital Building had recontly been completed; the Temple College Charter had been changed to a Univorsity Charter. The Philadelphia Dental College became affiliated with the new university and the medical school moved into the buildings of the dental school. Dr. Russell was a very able man, a good operator and a splendid teacher, having both the medical and dental degrees. Unfortunately, due to so many changes taking place in the school, ho was not able to demonstrate to the students his ability as a surgeon except at the Philadelphia General Hospital, where he was Chief Oral Surgeon holding surgical clinics in the operating amphitheater on Saturdays from twelve noon until one o'clock to students not only of the Philadelphia Dental College but to students from other dental schools in the city. Dr. Russell was a Major in the Army during the World War 1. serving with a hospital unit in France doing oral and plastic surgery. DR JAMES R CAMERON was appointed Oral Surgeon at Temple University School of Dentistry in 1933 succeeding the late Dr. Russell. Dr. Camoron reorganized the department adding two associate teachers, a graduate nurse and anesthetist and had the minor oral surgical clinic renovated. It is hoped in the near future that this department will be fully equipped for doing all surgical cases at the school. Dr. Cameron, an authority on oral surgory, received his training in Guy's Hospital, London, the University of Pennsylvania and Edinburgh University. Dr. Camoron has been director of the Oral Surgery Service of the Pennsylvania Hospital since he organized it in 1916; (it is here that ho holds his surgical clinics before the classes) visiting oral surgeon to the Episcopal Hospital for eleven years and served two years in the Army Dental Corps during the World War 1. It is men of Dr. Cameron's sterling calibre that have developed and advanced the practice of Oral Surgery both at Temple and in the profession at large. Wo are proud to have had the Drs. Garretson. Boenning, and Russell and now Dr. Cameron associated with our institution, for men of their character and skill lift the standards of Dentistry to the highest level. 117DR. BOENNING OPERATING. ALBUM ODR. RUSSELL DEMONSTRATING SURGICAL PROCEDI IN THE UPPER AMPHITHEATRE 3RAL SURGERY 119"HIS LIFE WAS RICH, AND FROM IT, THOSE WHO DR. ISAAC NORMAN BROOMELL was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, in 1858, being a descendant of John Broomell, who came to this country with William Penn. His father was Isaac Broomell, and his mother. Rachael H. Wilkinson, both natives of Chester County. In 1863, Isaac Broomell established himself in the machine business and as an iron founder in Christiana, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Here Norman, the youngest of a family of seven, spent most of his boyhood days. He early became interested in mechanical work and as he grew older spent much of his time in his father's shop, and there acquired knowledge which later proved of great value in his work in Prosthetic Dentistry. His preparatory education was obtained in the Friends' Central School in Philadelphia. From the Friends' School he entered the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery, from which he graduated in 1879. Two years later he commenced teaching as one of the Auxiliary Corps in that institution. This was the beginning of his career as a teacher and educator. His aptitude and ability were soon recognized, and in 1896 he was made chief instructor in the Prosthetic Department. In 1898 he became Professor of Dental Anatomy, Dental Histology and Prosthetic Technics at the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery, which positions he held until the reorganization of the Dental Department of the Medico-Chirurgical College in 1906 when he was called to this institution to be Dean and Professor of Dental Anatomy and Histology, and of Prosthetic Dentistry. These positions he held for ten years or until 1916 when the Medico-Chirurgical College was absorbed by the University of Pennsylvania.. In the Fall of 1916 Dr. Broomell became a member of the faculty of Temple University as Professor of Dental Anatomy and Histology and Clinical Dentistry. In the spring of 1918 Dean Simeon H. Guilford resigned and was made Dean Emeritus. Dr. Broomell was elected Dean of the faculty. It is believed that the record of Dr. Broomell has not been equaled by any dean; having served continuously with the exception of one year for thirty-two years, it is doubtful if any teacher in dental schools was known to so many members of the profession. 120KNEW HIM DERIVE AN IMMEASURABLE WEALTH. When you recall that he had been teaching for more than fifty-eight years it is apparent why he is best known as an educator, but to the present generation he was only known as "Dean Broomell". He possessed all the qualities necessary for a good executive, a past master in diplomacy, fighting all his battles with this weapon and coming out victorious. The 1st ed. of “Dental Anatomy and Histology" was edited by Dr. Broomell in 1898. It was favorably received by the profession and was immediately adopted as a text book by many of the dental colleges. It is believed to be the first work of its kind ever edited on purely dental anatomy and histology. (Now in British Museum.) Seven editions have been issued. In 1908 Dr. Broomell compiled and edited "Practical Dentistry by Practical Dentists." This was a valuable work for the practicing dentist being used as a reference book. Mention will be made of only a few of the many organizations that Dr. Broomell has been a member: Member of the Board of Directors of the National Research Institute. Fellow of the American Academy of Dental Surgery, National Association Dental Teachers, The Societe Dentaire de France, Past President State Dental Society, Philadel- phia Dental Club, Hon. member of Psi Omega Fraternity, Hon. member of New York State Dental Society, Hon. member of American Society of Orthodontists. Member of the Academy of Stomatology, one of the American representatives to the International Dental Congress held in Paris in 1900. His learning and scientific investigations won for Dr. Broomell a distinguished and everlasting position in his chosen profession. His prolific writings and contributions to Dental literature did much to bring the science of dentistry to its present honored position. His knowledge of men, his heartfelt interest in the efforts of his students, his sense of justice and keen appreciation of the other man's position, in short, the real sympathy and understanding for his fellows, we know to have been the real foundation of Dr. Broomell's best accomplishments. Dr. Broomell served and guided this school well. His hand painted new stripes of honor on this Institution, his name and deeds shall forever be a tribute to these halls of learning, his character shall be a guide to all who knew him. We do hereby place the name of Dr. Isaac Norman Broomell on the roll call of honor in the spheres to which his life was dedicated, and to which his life has been a distinguished and honored landmark—Temple University School of Dentistry, the Den tal Profession, and Humanity. 121MUSEUM In a seldomly frequented part of the Administration Building there exists a growing entity in the form of the small but compact museum that is being nurtured and cared for by Dr. Harold L. Faggart, of our Operative Dentistry staff. It is not, at present, a spacious museum, but its display of materials, literature, and, instruments related to dentistry is highly interesting and educational. In former years the museum occupied what is now the Klahr Clinic. With the construction of our fine Pediodontia Clinic, the Museum was obliged to be disbanded, and the many pieces on display were divided among the several departments. Unfortunately, some valuable objects were lost in this transition. However, in 1938, Dr. Broomell appointed Dr. Faggart as Curator of the Museum. In the limited space of the Administration Building basement Dr. Faggart has placed a wonderful collection of dental items. For these five years he has given unstintingly of his time and materials so that, this museum might grow and improve. We feel that he should be highly commended for the job he has done and is continuing to do. Among the numerous collections in the museum there is a display of automatic mallets, dental chairs of the plush era, extraction instruments so weird that their method of application is a mystery, and also, a copy of General Winfield Scott's (of Revolutionary War fame) maxillae, one of the largest human sets known. Many other items of interest are in the collection, including illustrations and literature showing the history of our school. Dr. Faggart indicated to us that this rendezvous of relics shall be more royally housed in the near future, and when the physical site of this school is changed, the Museum will be placed as an integral part of the school. With unselfish effort. Dr. Faggart has organized and molded for the Temple University School of Dentistry a museum that brings recognition to both himself and to Temple. The value of such a collection of material is inestimable in bringing out and preserving the rich, romantic past of the dental profession. The Museum makes us realize the progress that Dentistry has made. It is a guide and milestone in the development of this honorable art and science. As small recompense for the work and foresight of such a man, who is always a tribute to the profession, we sincerely suggest and hope that the Museum assume the name of the man who built it—the "Faggart Museum". 122The rhythmic cadence ol marching feet resounds through Buttonwood Street, transforming a peaceful, carefree student quadrangle into a uniformed, precision-marked parade ground. Many have realized the vast difference between "By the right flank, march" and establish the outline form. Many have realized the vast difference between life at school and life in the Army. Many know that they are the luckiest men in the country to be given the privilege of going to school in time of war. But as of October 22, 1943, and every nine months thereafter a class will be graduated and ordered to take its place in the organization of the armed forces. Whether we are sent to Europe, Africa. India, or the Pacific, we will come in contact with men from divergent parts of the world with trainings that may or may not agree with ours. When we take our rightful place in the service of our country, when we take our stand side by side with men of a common cause and object, and when we aid in the rehabilitation of many lands and peoples, then perhaps we can say that ours will be an Allied dentistry. Where each of us will land is hard to guess, and the conditions under which we work is still another matter. It is safe to say that outside of this country practice will present many problems. It is interesting to note the difficulties of a dentist in Rabaul prior to the Japanese aggression. Imagine a cement mix being handed to you by a brown-skinned attendant clad in a very scanty loin cloth. Imagine the heat being so great that your assistant has to pump the foot engine for you. an office built of split bamboo, the floor of the same material with gaps as wide as two inches, and a grass roof with rats dislodging dust on both you and the patient. And that is luxury, for more often a foot engine is set up in the shade of a tree and work is performed with a goodly crowd watching and taunting. If you are working on the natives, the chance is very great that you will not be able to converse with him and will not know whether an injection has taken or whether the patient is a stoic. But with bombs booming and snipers shooting, dentistry will be limited to the very essentials for our boys, with aid to the natives coming at a later date. One who goes to China will find a problem so great that it will seem insurmountable. In a country with a population three times that of ours there are only 300 qualified practitioners. In 1935, however, the initial committee on dental education of the two universities launched a program modeled after that in this country, but it will be some time before they can produce 7.500 practitioners annually, which is the calculated need of China. Consequently, one will find the great majority of the population who have any attention at all patronize the charlatans and bazaars. The common belief is that Chong Ya (tooth worm) or dental caries was attributed to the gnawing of worms and could be prevented by the removal of food debris from the mouth after eating. This has given rise to the common custom of rinsing the mouth after eating. It is interesting to note that records show the Chinese began to brush their teeth with a saline solution during the Tang Dynasty, about 619 A.D. This country presents a crying need for dental teachers, practitioners, administrators. and research workers. Probably one of the most interesting places to see is the U. S. S. R. Since 1917 dentistry in Russia has made great strides. From the Caucasus to the icy extremes of Siberia; from the European frontier to the China Sea, the healing arts have been extended through the media of education and free clinics. One of the phases of Dentistry emphasized by the Russians is Orthodontia, due to the fact that their idealistic philosophy indicates that they would rather prevent than repair. Russia possesses vast resources of gold and so a considerable 124amount of cast gold work is done, but, oddly enough, cohesive or non-cohe-sive gold is rarely inserted. It is interesting to note that in 1936, 30,000,000 patients were treated in Russian clinics and that each of these people receives a dental inspection at least once a year. However, in spite of the numerous free clinics, there are many private dental practices. The dentist may charge as he sees fit, so long as he can demonstrate to the State that value for value received has been rendered. The task of building the Soviet Republics has been, and continues to be, an immense project. It is very commendable to see that the health of the individual is not overlooked in the vast, dynamic process of construction; and the dental phase of public welfare receives a full complement of attention. In its organizaton of health service to its citizens the Soviet Union has done a fine job. After the present conflict a great deal of rehabilitation will be necessary, but it appears that the Russians will be capable of taking care of their own needs, as far as the dental problem is concerned. The standards of Dentistry in Great Britain are similar to those in this country except that the schools are not as numerous and have fewer students. Where we have individual state boards of examiners, the British have a dental board for the entire United Kingdom. There has been a growing program to expand dental education and practice in India and the Dominions. The Indian Government has instituted legislation for the setting up of a code of dental standards and ethics to eliminate the last vestiges of charlatan practice and to give the people a responsible. efficient body of dentists. The University of Calcutta established a dental college and, with a similar institution in Bombay, a proud step forward has been taken in bringing dental health to the large populace. The degree of industrialization in South Africa and Australia reflects itself in the modern dental techniques employed in that area. In the advancement of Operative Dentistry we must note that the use of diamond point burs and discs receives an impetus from the vast diamond resources around Johannesburg, British South Africa. The British have done some extensive work in synthetic restorations and evolved such materials as the cement-silicate combination often referred to in this country as "Petralit." Oral Surgery has adopted a method of stabilizing fragments in a fractured jaw by the use of vitallium bars screwed into position and applied in a fashion similar to the Stader splint. This technique was worked out during the epic "Battle of Britain." With the initiative, spirit, and courage of such Allies, the various phases of dental practice in Great Britain have reached high levels of proficiency. Wherever we go, be it Rome, Berlin, Tokyo, or the Philadelphia General Dispensary, we have the biggest job that has ever been presented for the advancement of the profession. Thousands of men in the service will be subjected to our treatment. Many will base their opinion of dentists in general on the Army or Navy dentist that did their work. Thus we may be able to aid in educating the population and gain a confidence for the profession which has been wrongly denied due to ignorant thought and talk. The same will be true of our rehabilitation work in occupied territories. We have been the recipients of one of the government's greatest gifts—Army and Navy Specialized Training. Let us express our appreciation by doing the best for the men who are doing the actual fighting, and in turn give the rightful boost to our chosen profession of Dentistry. 125CONVERSION TO MILITARY The Army Specialized Training Program came to Temple University on June 3, 1943, with the activation of the Temple unit, designated as the 3314th Service Unit, under command of Major LaVerne K. Shiffer. The unit consists of Company "A" located at the Dental School under the command of Lieutenant Bruce A. Erickson who is assisted by First Sergeant Edwin R. Scheitler and Company "B” which is located at Temple Medical School. On June 16, 1943, the first group of dental students was inducted at the Philadelphia Customs House and sent to Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, to be followed by three other groups in as many days. At Fort Meade the change from civilians to soldiers was made in true army style with a 4:45 A. M. reveille, drilling, intelligence tests, vaccine "shots", and of course kitchen police. Upon returning to school, the dental students, now soldiers, were organized into a cadet battalion composed of two companies of four platoons each. Three squads of approximately fifteen men each and led by a corporal make up a platoon which is under the command of a platoon sergeant. The cadet officers are four in number and include the battalion commander, an adjutant, and the two company commanders. The program of military activity to date includes a daily reveille at 7:45 A. M., drill at 5:00 P. M., and a Saturday inspection at noon. Lectures on military subjects such as customs of the service, military courtesy, organization of the army, etc., are supplementary to the regular drill period. The uniforms worn by the enlisted personnel are the regulation army uniforms for enlisted men and a fatigue uniform which is worn during drill periods. Since July 1st, at which time the entire unit was promoted to the rank of private first class, the chevron of that rank is worn in addition to the insignia of the Third Service Command. 126LaVerne K. Shiffer, Major, lnlantry Reserves Major Shiffer was bom at West Reading. Pa., on August 18, 1907. Ho was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1931 with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Economics and a teacher's certificate. The degree of Master of Arts was bestowed upon him in 1943 by Pennsylvania State College while associated with the department of Military Scionce and Tactics ol that institution. During his college days. Major Shiffer was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Social Fraternity and the Scabbard and Blade Military Fraternity. In civilian life, he is married and the father of two children, taught in Reading High School, worked for a time as salesman for the Gulf Oil Corporation, and was Vice-President of radio station WIBG when called to active duty by the army. Although a reserve officer for twelve years, Major Shiffer has been on active duty for the three years previous to his present assignment. He is the commanding officor of tho 3314th Service Unit which is the Army Specialized Training Unit at Templo University Graduate and Professional Schools. Bruce A. Erickson. Second Lieutenant. N.M B. Lieutenant Erickson was born at St. Paul. Minnesota on September 12, 1914. Ho recoivod tho Bachelor of Science degree in Law from the University of Minnesota in 1937 and two years lator the degree of Bachelor of Laws upon graduation from the Law School of the same University. While in college, he was a member of the Beta Kappa Social Fraternity and the Gamma Eta Gamma Legal Fraternity. In civilian life, Lieutonant Erickson was an attorney and practiced law for two years in Kasson, Minnesota with specialization in taxation. His army career began at Fort Snolling. Minnesota on June 14. 1942 and a week later he was assigned to the Quartermaster Replacement Training Center al Fort Warren. Wyoming. Two months later he was assigned to a Specialized Training Company as a non-commissioned officer with the duty of instructing non-English speaking and illiterate trainees. Upon graduation from the Army Administrative Officers School at Fargo, North Dakota on Juno 23, 1943 Lieutenant Erickson was assigned to his present post as commanding officer of Company "A" (3314th Sorvice Unit) which is the Army unit at Temple Dental School. Edwin R. Scheitler, First Sorgeant, United States Army Sergeant Scheitler was bom at Bancroft, Michigan on July 17. 1914. and graduated from Durand High School in Durand, Michigan. In civilian life he was employed by the Simplicity Engineering Company as a drill pres3 operator. He is married and the father of one child. The Sergeant's military career began in 1935 when he enlisted in the army and was assigned to the 2nd lnlantry. Most of his service, however, was with the 702nd Battalion of Military Police. In Juno of this year, Sorgeant Scheitler applied for over-seas duty with the Military Police but was assigned to his present post as First Sergeant wih Company "A" (3314th Service Unit) at Temple Dental School. 127GENERAL ORDER? v' WALT SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Our first relationship with Temple University School of Dentistry was in the form of an interview by the late Dr. Broomell, whom none of us will forget. Of course, our answers to the questions of that dignified gentleman had been well rehearsed even to the point where we knew just how much our dental education was going to cost. Though the majority of us did not have sufficient funds for the first year, we all claimed financial independence. Then came the notice of acceptance, and after certain administrative procedures we were officially enrolled in the Class of 1944. The beginning of the Freshman Year found us quite bewildered, and we were completely awed by our ''beautiful'' campus and enormous school. We soon found that the school was not as large as it appeared, and after a short time we were able to distinguish the I.T.E. factory next door from our own. We were repeatedly told by the upper classmen that they would act as our big brothers. The reason for this readily became apparent, for what easier way could they have of selling us used books, dissecting kits, prosthetic equipment, etc.? Shortly after our entrance into the school all of us, with the exception of Irv Spector, the baby of the class, and a few others, registered for the draft. Many a sleepless night was spent by early receivers of questionnaires until deferments were obtained. However, the general fog in which we were enveloped soon lifted enough to enable us to distinguish a bicuspid from a molar, an upper denture from a lower, and the personnel of the anatomy lab from cadavers. It was not long before our bone boxes became covered with dust and the corpses were covered with maggots. Our professors gradually became familiar sights. It was Dr. Schacterle who first told us that it was time to begin calling each other "doctor", and then proceeded to address us as "you guys", and "you birds". We all recall the "morphological characteristics" of Dr. Else, from whom we learned more about making jokes an issue than things "in toto" concerning histology and tissue. It was also during this year that Dr. Schabinger was attacked by a dive bomber during one of his osteology lectures. The good doctor wasn't considered a military objective so the flight was attributed to a whimsical gremlin (of the Zwillinger-143 variety) who probably bailed out over the amph. During the second semester Dr. Broomell, to the deep sorrow of all who knew him, passed away. The duties of his office were filled by Dr. Addie, who was appointed Acting Dean. 133Earlier in the year the AO-PSi O combination squared off against the SED-ZIP combine in the political ring, with the former group coming out with the winning ribbons. Final exams were soon upon us and, with a fair amount of studying, and an equal amount of ocular projection, we managed to survive the ordeal. After an enjoyable summer vacation, which was to be our last for the duration, we returned as Sophomores ready to sell our Freshman equipment to the incoming class. It was during this year that Dr. Shocterle had two consecutive hours of lecture and Bieler, Guentter, Hahn and Ferris had two consecutive hours of pinochle. Dr. McFarland began his lectures in pathology to a most attentive class, in fact, some of the boys enjoyed the course so well that at its completion they took extra instruction from Dr. Donnelly. By the middle of the sophomore year we all knew that the soprano in the back of the amphitheatre was Art Zoller and that Willie Herzog was really past the age of puberty—the crack in his voice was due to thermal currents in his larynx. George Brewer was dividing his time between studies and playing soccer on the Temple Varsity. About this time Kelmans and Goldberg were both well established in the soap carving business, and John Quinn's prosthetic laboratory was working overtime. Of note is the occasion during an Anatomy quizz when Phil Richman was smoking his pipe, and the amphitheater was not the quietest place in the world, Dr. Schabinger opinionated aloud—"Rich-man, a little more smoke and less talk”. The Physiology lab was the site of one of our more recreational courses. The casualties were heavy in the water fights that took place with the hypodermic syringe being the chief weapon of battle. "Phearless Phil" Levin, who feared naught but frogs, was often made the victim of practical jokes when his pockets were stuffed with dead amphibians. Meanwhile, a floor or so below, Dr. Grisbaum was working diligently trying to think up new techniques for us, as somehow or other, we managed to complete our prosthetic requirements early. Our last project was unique in the fact that many of us were taking impressions with blue pencil. This year, as in the previous one, the AO-PSi O group pulled a political "radish” by repeating the victory in the class elections. Again, we managed to survive finals and. after a vacation of one month's duration, we were back at the academic wheel as Juniors. Dental schools throughout the country were beginning work on accelerated programs. This program called for the elimination of summer vacations, but it meant that we were to complete our last two school years in the next sixteen 134months. Our operative gowns were late in arriving, but it made little difference since there were very few patients to be had. It took the better part of the summer to check off "rubber dam", do a student "prophy” and prepare our first cavity. In fact, some of the fellows had so many prophylaxis points that Dr. Rusca threatened to transfer those students to the Oral Hygiene class (not that they would have objected). At this time Aissis developed a one track mind, namely "Garden State", and the ball parks announced an increased attendance at afternoon games. The battle of Vivaqua vs. Mast was being fought on the clinic floor, the location of which was still unknown to many of us. By the Fall of our Junior Year, after a short reign by Dr. Haas, who had succeeded Dr. Addie after the latter's resignation was forced by ill health, the position of Dean was filled by Dr. Timmons. There was a change in the secretaries to the Dean and also in the general arrangement of the office. With all these alterations it seemed that the only permanent fixture in that office was Bob Crandall. The clinic floor gradually became more crowded, and the points began to roll in. But, by the beginning of December more students could be found at the Railway Express or Post Office than in the school building. "Trigger Mike" was still feeding us the "meat" of the course, and weekly performances of the "circus" were held in the upper amphitheater featuring the "dandelion eater". The year was rapidly drawing to a close and with a crescendo and a burst, the bulk of us managed to pass our clinical requirements. Like Old Man River, the PSi O-AO ensemble streamed through the elections. After final exams we were granted a week rest—the pause that refreshed, enough for a breath of fresh air, a quart of blood and a hypo of adrenalin. We returned as Seniors about to set forth on the last lap of our dental course. However, our anxiety for graduation was tempered by the knowledge that the school was to be taken over by the Armed Forces in the near future. In the class elections the worms turned when OF Man River, Inc. was slowed down to a mere trickle and the AO-PSi O group took a bleacher seat and "sat this one out". We resumed our dental work as Seniors with some of the boys jumping the gun like prize winners out after the Class Six medal. In the interim, while Oscar Minkin was looking for patients, the stork was looking for the house of Mrs. Minkin. The Mrs. presented Oscar with a baby daughter and Oscar presented the boys with some cheap cigars. Bob Blaney and Dr. Ritsert could not quite agree as to the type of cavity preparation for a pedo patient, but it couldn't have been because Bob had missed 135SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Dr. Ritsert's lecture the day before. Toward the end of the first semester, those of us who held 2nd Lieutenant commissions in the Army resigned and enlisted in the E.R.C. We then went to the Armory for our physical examinations where high blood pressure was found to be low, low pressures to be high enough, and most physical defects waivered as long as the body was warm and the enlistee strong enough to turn at a passing blonde. A few of the more perfect physical specimens of the class resigned their Naval Commissions under a similar plan. Semester finals were held at Conwell Hall gymnasium, which was built for athletics and not acoustics. June 16 was a memorable day, for it was then that the first group of students, nine-tenths of whom were seniors was inducted into the Army and sent to Fort Meade. From that day on we were under rules and regulations. One of the regulations concerning proper attire called for the wearing of socks, much to the distaste of Bob Weissman who had been used to doing without them very comfortably. Pat Caccio and Toni Iannacone, of the "Yo Pat" combination, had a very delightful day when we all decided to get G.I. haircuts, a gesture of which our top sergeant was highly in favor. Pat assisted the regular army barbers in clipping the boys while Toni was made to feel right at home with the newly scalped members of Company A. Many of the boys became skilled hands at K.P., and Oscar Minkin and Bill Zwick were apparently enjoying themselves so much that they remained at camp for several days after the rest of us returned to Philadelphia. Back at school we were placed under the cadet command of "Brig. General" William Walker, under whose bellowing voice we "hutted and harched” on Lit Bros, cinder and dust bowl. We soon settled down to the daily routine of reveille and drill, and again became concerned with clinical requirements. Now, with the end of the year in view, and four months of service behind us, we look forward to graduation day when we shall receive the degree of Doctor-of Dental Surgery and a 1st Lieutenant commission in the service. This is our Class History—merely the preliminary phases of the history we intend to make in the future. We entered this school as individuals with one purpose in mind, to serve mankind through dentistry. Now, after 37 months of intensive training we are prepared to leave our school as an organized body of men ready to fulfill this purpose by serving our country as dentists in i‘s hour of need! 136MEET THE FELLAS Aissis—Scampulent gadabout — Our only three letter man earning his awards in Pedo, Track and as representative of our class to the Oral Hygienists.

Greene—"Charles Boyer" has had his moments. Blondes and the military filled his moments when such free time was available. Gross—"Two Tone" has lead a well rounded scholastic life. He has combined business with pleasure in an excellent manner. "His outstanding characteristic is the over abundance of good spirits." quoth the Faculty. Guenf er—Bob is the pleasant chap with the amiable smilo we know so well. We hear his capacity for "the suds" is surpassed only by his friendliness. Hahn—Sam is another member of the sports enthusiast group. His senior year brought him first prize in the most important game of all—marriage. Harmelin—"Velvele" is a meticulously neat fellow who is known for his "Dotty" rather than "spotty" career. Harrington—Carefree, easy going Bob has thoroughly enjoyed his student days.

Lampert—"Rebel" brought with him from 'Bama the easy going manner of the deep South. La Rocca—The inception of the Army found Tom’s closets filled with reet pleats and stuffed cuffs, depriving Temple Dent of a well dressed gentleman. 138Lehman—Good natured Morton B. performs well with the "Calamity cubes." Electrically inclined, he is working on a spotlight with hair on it. Baldy uses dull-fin-ish tonsorial liquid to eliminate the glare. Leone—Never a harsh word does he utter! Dom is affable and a fellow very, very easy to take. Lescoe—Never at a loss for words, Ed can talk his way in, through, and out of a Senate meeting. He can cross tongues with the sharpest. Levin—Son of Eli and Mr. Levin, this Connecticut Chap is really a sincere, hardworking individual. He instruments on the saxophone—does better on "section harmony" than he does on "straight hot." Noted for coming late, Phil just about made it on his day of birth. Liishin—Still, but gentlemanly Aaron is the type that you have to inquire about to know whether he is in the class—but of the stock that a balanced class can't do without. Linaberry—Usually seen chewing on something—a good platoon Sergeant. Bill lends backbone to our class. McAtee—Likeable Admiral Chet has gray matter in the upstairs compartment. Can't label him with any conspicuous trait—he rates well, certainly entitled to the stamp of approval. Marota—Silent Sal—pays dues regularly, casts one vote at a time and maintains attention to dentistry. Rates 100% in "ayes" in any approval ballot. Mast—If Dick were to be made analogous to a parallel in the canine world we would call him a "pointer." Serious, conscientious, acts as anchor and ballast for any group around him.

Tutfiash—Tuffy never was happy unless he was in some sort of trouble. Vivacqua—Though we tagged him "Mallas" it was all in fun, for there is no bigger heart than that within J. V.’s pericardium. Walker—Every class must have its Don Quixote. Weiss—Joe likes any color so long as it is Red. Hard worker, good technician and a grand guy. Weissman—We saw very little of Bob and heard less from him, but in the end the job was completed. White—Gentleman dentist, we suspect he authored "The Corn Is Green." Whitmoyer—As silent as a painted ship upon a painted ocean. Wolpert—Democratic and diligent. "Iz" fostered and furthered the progress of our Class. Zoffer—Diminutive "Frenchy," friend of all. helped make the tough spots livable many, many times. Zwick—Quiet man around a bracket and table.

He'd cut himself to ribbons and then give the red one away for first prize at a harmonica contest. And Jo-Jo Limquico—knew his anatomy like Jefferson knew the Constitution, but he spoke like a Republican—his diction was as clear as the view of a cavity under a pool of saliva. Fashion Plate Joe, we used to call him—soft-spoken, suave—just two pages in from the cover of Esquire. And what spirit of recklessness! Why, Jo once tossed Man-O'War for the blanket the horse had, and from the looks of his coat, Limquico won. Can you imagine Sam Ronkin convincing his patients that he is on their side? Ever look at Prof. McFarland and see George Arliss? Of course, "Spanky" never won an "Oscar," but any man who can beat Metchnikoff at marbles and top Virchow in a yo-yo match deserves respect. "The glow from our Uncle Louie Herman's pate would act just like a beam. But, he's not only broad in build, but is a morphologist supreme— Then, add his ever present stogie—known both near and far. And he reminds us of a walking ad for Admiration cigar!" Bet you often wondered why "Bucky" Walter took such a shine to gold foil?—that's easy! He has a gold mine of his own—staked his claim back in the Yukon days, and just to protect his interest, as they say in advertising parlance, he is plugging gold! "Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look." So it says in Shakespeare's book— 'Tis none other than our own George Shacterle, Whose hair on his head takes the form of a V—for Victory. Bellowin' Leon Halpern, like a town crier, is always remindin' folks, in his stentorian tones, that any infraction of the rules will result in a tirade of punishment for the wrongdoer. Hm! Niagara Falls also makes a roaring sound— and, like the Chief, it is useful and productive. "Gentleman Jim" Craig, the shyest, most retirin' person this side of Dr. Calely, just doesn't like to hurt anyone's feelings. If he exposes anyone to accidental embarrassment, he just does not dab on eugenol, 'course not—Doc Craig uses a special "point ointment"—spreads on liberally and rubs it in. Ever watch Dr. Doyle enjoyin' his window gazin'? Reckon he would love to live in a glass house—wouldn't know which way to turn. Gotta mark that down for my Xmas list—glass house for Doyle, and crayon set and lots of diagnostic charts for Dr. Quinn. How about doing the charting in water colors or oils, Mike, Jr.? I can see it all now—one of our own charts hanging in the Louvre! Wonder if Salerno gets the "meat" for his course in the black market? But who would ever sell "Bar-stripe" suits—or is that supposed to be "pinstripe"? George Sandman can swap stories with the best, makes learning an ABC proposition, and is a walking, smiling proof that instructors can be liked and respected and yet pitch pennies or discuss ankles with the students. Nope, it isn't a needle in the haystack that Bill Baglivo is looking for with his magnifying glass—just nosin' around for sharp line angles. He is the gum-chewin'est man around—just a dental Sherlock with a flair for chiclets. Wally Forbes brings out thoughts of Tyrone Power doing a Class Three. A great combination is W. F.—a good looking dentist doing good looking fillings. Wonder how Harold Du Bois and Emilio Velutini would make out at one of those amusement park shootin' galleries? We hear that Harry can shoot excess off a silicate at 50 yards, and Emilio can crease the inside of a molar tube at 60 yards. 142143DENTO - MILITARY DEFINITIONS Sharpey's Fibres—loose threads in a zoot suit. GI Haircut—a high shave. Peyer's Patches—relining on a worn out intestine. Class Two Throat Form—between class one and class three throat form. Femoral Triangle—a love tryst out on a limb. Extension for Prevention—going out of your way to find the "green light inn." Clasp for Retention—what happens when your lose your GI belt. Hamular Notch—what you take in your belt after "chow” at Meade. Exposure—a living for a strip artiste but a headache for a dentist. Overextended—your credit in the supply house. Salute—military "high ball.” Hut—either a place in which to live or what comes before—hoo—hip—four. Axial Wall—what you are lined up against if you are AWOL. About Face—the prof, telling you to change your preparation from amalgam to that of an inlay. Fatigue—may be a green suit or how you feel after plugging 20 grains of gold foil. Mucco-Buccal Fold—the technique of making beds at army camps. Retromolar Pad—making out an expense sheet behind the lower third molars. Central Incisor—Front and Center. Post—perfected by Dr. Davis—now mainly used by Walker, Zultowski, and Kerner. Spheroiding—bulging in the middle, or the silhouette of Spector, Minkin and Richman. Ankelosis—claudication resulting from constant turning to look at pretty legs. Undercut—What Mast does to Vivacqua and what Mishkin does to both of them. IS THIS THE ARMY? Gentle reader, this is no complaint or grievance. My sergeant hates me. He doesn't understand me. He thinks I'm awkward. I don't mind that because I think he's incoherent. Hut, two, three, four. Hut, two, three, four. What a vocabulary! My whole life is now metered by fours. I eat, sleep and breathe in that rhythm. Even my dogs have turned against me. No more do I hear their friendly Arf, Arf, but a crescendic Hut, Hut now greets my ears. Forward ‘arch—How confusing. Especially to one new to army life. For the first three weeks of drill, I thought it was an invitation to a crap game. Incidentally the fastest and most profitable every played. It may not be a proper military movement to simultaneously roll a seven and to the rear march, but it's darn difficult to execute. Bitterly do I remember the day when the command "Present Arms" was given, I was eating a chocolate ice cream cone at the time. Anyway the sergeant said brown eyes were becoming to me. Left face, right face, Janus would have had an easy time of it. Remembering which is your right and left face can be tiring. Especially when they keep changing all the time. I've been spinning in circles so long, I am considering casting my own inlays. However, off the drill field things are different. Every time I happen to be on the third floor casually holding my shirt in hand, some one jabs me with a needle. What a perfect set up for a dart board. One more circle under my eyes and I'll look like a target. Sure, the sergeant must be Irish. No sooner than he finishes whistling we are all wearing the green and heading for the drill field. Drill field did I say? Pardon, I mean drool field. Especially about 5:00 PM when ITE releases their charming employees. According to the sergeant, it should be droll field. Its that funny to watch us march, he claims. The reason our sergeant got his stripes was that he never mistook his right foot for his left. He found it easy because he has six toes on his left foot. Twenty hours of drill a month, I'll wager that's quite a bit. Yes! Army life has certainly done wonders for my sleep. I no longer have to count sheep. All I do is cadence count. Hut, two, three, snore. 144ADVERTISEMENT Come to Fort George G.

TAPS DENTLINEWS Far be it from us to enter into the lives of some of our erstwhile characters but curiosity urged on by temptation has kindled the spirit of our special staff of “DENTLINS.” The Dentlins are the offspring of bachelor gremlins, and are responsible for all the undercover news. These little snoop troops lie in wait on the couches of all the fraternity houses, on the benches behind the Art Museum, they perch quietly in the dizzy heights of the fire escape of the A. O. House every weekend. They hide behind the waste cups at each bracket on the clinic floors and listen in on the conversations between the instructors and the shapely patients who are being drilled. They constantly swing on the scales at Gibbie's and must certainly be the reason for all the weight shortages in the gold inlay issues. ‘'Sweetie,” one of the retired Dentlins, has taken on the task of guarding some chocolate bon-bons that tickle the fancy of one of our instructors who frequently goes to the safe where they are safely hidden from the vultures. Often we seem to imagine that therein sits also a bottle of Mount Vernon Spirits that bolsters up the spirits of some of our more versatile characters of the clinic. “Pullit,” our little exodentlin who spies in the Oral Surgery Dept., says, “He who has surgery duties on Tuesday and Thursday mornings are suckers in the true sense of the word.” Hmmmmm and he ain't kiddin' either. “High Pockets” is stationed in the diagnostic room and he says the reason why the diagnosis department really moved upstairs for a month or so was that there was not enough room downstairs to allow the necessary trouser-cuff lifting to the knee heights when Professor Mathews exploited his many athletic, familial, financial, and dramatic slaptitudes, er—aptitudes. Then there is “Shorty," our specially constructed Dentlin, who rolls around on silent skates between Dr. Subin's knees and helping “Sube” hustle hither and yon to all students who have something more than a prophy to contend with; from Dr. Subin's size it looks like we're really running him into the ground. “Stinky,” our most mischievous Dentlin, who last year was responsible for our most pleasant gift of friendship to Penn Dent, in the form of Dr. Ward Miller; this year, however, he has come across with an idea that really is a daisy. It seems that “Stinky” wants to paint all the clinic windows black so as to slowly drive Dr. Doyle to ruin. Keep thinking, “Stinky.” but watch your step when you concentrate on G.D.T. We have a real cute and pretty “DENTLYNE” whose name is “Goldie.” She has long, soft, yellow curls, and dresses her contours with many exposures. She always had a lot of fun annoying Dr. Walter with her class “too,” but oft times soothes him with her feminine guiles by smoothly finishing and burnishing her exposed margins with her solid, shining, satin-like dress and in that way brings out finer and better points. 148The financial whiz of the crew is “Sharpy." He's so shrewd that he landed a contract with the Barbers' Union and gets a 40% kick back on all moneys paid to the union by Drs. Timmons. Halpern, Cameron. Salerno, and Herman. By the latest reports, however, we know that he is blackmailing our own ‘Alice in the Sterilizing Cage" into giving him half of what she makes from saving the scrap gold foil that she picks up from the floor every afternoon when the clinic is closed. Naturally there are always Dentlins that we do not like and one of them is “Horny," who sits on Dr. Carmick's ear and whispers mean and nasty things to him and makes the good Dr. get fiendish ideas for the students to execute. We will have to get “Klutz," our educated Dentlin, to give “Homy" a lecture in manners. “Cadet" is a bit mischievous about his work, too. He made all the boys use up their hygienic rubber dam and now they are using a dangerously inferior grade for their cavity work. “Smokey" figures that since every one is going to work the summer through and brave the hot weather on the clinic floor, he personally is going to approach Dr. Halpern and suggest that Smaltz Herrings be hung in front of each electric fan so that we may enjoy cool, summer, salt breezes. Hmmm not bad, “Smokey," see what you can do about a few bathing beauties, too. FACTS AND FIGURES 1.

We're anxious to light our ioes. Months ago we were free as bees, Then came the call to arms, By ones, by twos, by crowds, and threes, We rushed to answer the alarms. We donned our army and navy Regs, And drilled tor hours, no end. To ready ourselves, and fulfill our pledge. Of allegiance to our flag and friends. In years gone by 'twas always said, The world shall at times be blue, An American has always led, In knowing what to do. Our soldier handles his mighty gun Skilled to the quick—his endeavor, He knows war—a cold blooded thing, Win he will, come hell, all weather. Our doctor with his skilled mind ready. Our nurse forever at his side. Our dentist v ith his hands all steady. Helping this lad maintain his stride. Sometime soon it will all be over, Complete victory it will surely be. Our earth once more bathed in clover, Cherished by guys like you and me.

U. 151MEET THE SCHOOL STAFF People with whom we come in contact every day, and who do much toward running our school effectively and efficiently: The days we have spent under the boss of the surgery clinic, Mrs. Ruth L. Wood. R.N., woman, and anesthetist par excellence, have been enjoyable and educational. We all know how many more hours we would like to spend under her tutelage. Mrs. Irene Giza, ''Doctor's" assistant, with her sweet smile and blue eyes, has given many of us help and advice while working in the Pediodontia Clinic. Irene is married to a graduate of our school, now serving up class twos for Uncle Sam in a lieutenant’s garb. Miss Esther M. Ellis is a graduate of our dental hygiene school, and has been attached to the Orthodontia Department for twelve years. "Pee-Wee" can take impressions with the best of us. Miss Charlotte E. Coffman, librarian, and her assistant, Mrs. Ruth S. Siefert, are two people seen on occasion. The students should certainly make these occasions more frequent. No research problem is too remote or obscure for our librarians; their resourcefulness will uncover some related facts. The one name you can be sure to hear any number of times, any day over the P. A. system, is Bill Owens. Bill is a mighty busy man. and he keeps his staff of seventeen hopping in order to maintain the facilities and cleanliness of the buildings. Charles Scott, the "king of the vulcanizer"! You are in debt to him the day you enter school and you graduate still in debt to Charley. His five and ten trade has a "take” rivaling that of a miniature Woolworth. Miss Viola Yothers, our telephone operator, has a personality as sweet as her voice, and a voice with a smile. "Marsha," Miss Marcia Bernstein for the record, is Doctor Halpern's assistant. Her figure adds with the best the point book has to offer. The assistant's chair that she holds has been beset by love gremlins in the past. How about it, M. . .. weakening? Kathryn Virginia Dailey—Dolly, for short; petite, freckled and official registrar for twenty-five cents. She wears an anomaly—a root canal filling that is a year or more in the making. Doctor Subin has ordered extraction! It is a shame that Bob woked so hard on it. Mrs. Elizabeth Pfeiffer, secretary to the Prosthetic Department, will only go to her locker with Irene—mice scare her. "Fife" is well liked and helps make prosthesis a pleasure. Sue M. Gibson, the moneyed woman, has been with the school for 29 years. Feed the "Gibby in the cage" with a chocolate bar, and she develops a sweet tooth for you. Bingo is her first love! Hurry, or you'll miss that 3:30 deadline! Alice Catherman, our "Bard-Parker Girl," keeps our instruments sterile. You can't switch a Kleenex on her for a towel. Sweet and honest, Alice rides herd over stray bits of equipment that the boys forget on the "floor." Miss Ruthe Snyder and Mrs. Marcia L. Sacks are the Dean's secretaries. Both pleasant and efficient, they assured us that they sing well together. We did not stay to listen! 152153isukU'l'T p2Xr4.AND NOW, IN RETROSPECT Outwardly the world was at peace! But like the seething contents of a purulent sac the globe was one vast egg hatching a monster of War. Political slumber encompassed us; while we forged steel for scalpels and explorers the aggressor nations were forging bayonets and guns. We came to school in quest of the knowledge which would enable us to heal, but, what are the forces of healing as compared to those of destruction? Unfortunately, the world was full of the advocates of social and intellectual katabolism—run down the vitality and hope of the common man, place his mind in turmoil and teach him wretched obedience and he will be your slave. But our ears were not receptive to such "fantastic” ideas, and we pulled the oceans over our heads and said that it couldn't happen. In the face of all that was decent and worthwhile, the hangmen and madmen discredited and maligned with foul lies the things that all thinking men would defend with their lives. All about us, like sprouting blades of grass, the implements of war showed ugly and ominous. This crisis didn't stir us enough. Even when Mars set the torch to the powder keg in 1939, and men's blood began to stain the earth, there were those among us who plunged their heads into the blind sands of isolationism and hacked at the nation's effort to meet the growing threat of Fascism! Nevertheless, here the halls of learning were kept open, and education was maintained and nurtured; while in other lands the human brain was anesthetized, and the "little red schoolhouse” was converted into a concentration camp. During a period of over two years of war we were divided in opinion as to whether we should arm, or ignore the whole situation and hope that it would soon all be over. Our leaders picked up the nation by its boot straps, and we started to awaken from our lethargy. We were not fast enough! Nor awake enough! December 7, 1941, hit us like a shattering bolt, a pounding sledge, a sharp, agonizing stab-—all at once we were tumbled into the cauldron that we hoped we might avoid. The fires at Pearl Harbor lit up our way to action—in the light of the flames of Oahu we saw the rats and vermin scurrying about us! The thoughts we had felt for seven years were suddenly crystallized into the fact that our very existence was being threatened. War was in our back yard! The alarm was sounded! The nation, the hemisphere, began to move! We prepared feverishly, but with clever calculation! We— people who were said to be decadent, soft and inferior—converted for war! Every citizen became a soldier. Our schools turned to educate for war and after. Students picked up arms—physically and academically. Education, instead of being curtailed, was increased, for we know that the fate and welfare of mankind lies in honest, constructive, truthful education. We. as exponents and proponents of the honored science and profession of dentistry, take our place among our brothers of the world and join in the issue of a message to all men who feel that they alone have a right to life! "We are human beings, we have feelings, emotions and desires. Our minds are not to be enslaved, nor our bodies chained. We want to live with and for humanity, but as free men. As ruthless as you who desire to rule all men can be in attaining your foul goals, we will be more severe in stamping out you and your kind. ‘Wherever the enemy is we shall seek him out' . . . Live with us in peace and cooperation and we shall accept you—live against us and you shall be crushed. “When once the eyes of man have seen the light of freedom he will never, never forget it. and he will move and struggle through and over the greatest barriers to reach the light and keep it shining. "We shall create life, we will maintain liberty, and we must pursue and attain happiness.” 158"... We hold these truths to be self-evident—that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are constituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; . . 1S9THE OCTOBER 1943 DENTAL LOG STAFF Editor-in-Chief Business Manager Associate Editor Associate Editor Advertising Manager ASSOCIATES Robert Crandall Metro Kotanchick Charles Gordon Arnold Kauffman Bernard Evans Carl Russ 160ACKNOWLEDGMENTS To Dr. John Buhler, who, as advisor to the Dental Log staff, guided our efforts and gave much helpful advice.

To be remembered or recalled, the past experience must bo suggested by the present. From: Encyclopedia Britannica. In these days of full appointment-books. when you take valuable time to teach tooth brushing, you must make that time productive, rcsult-ful. It is time wasted if your patient forgets your instructions. You can help make these minutes at the chair far more valuable for you and your patient if you take a tip from the psychologist. Pycope Tooth Powder bears the Seal of Acceptance of the Council on Dental Therapeutics of the American Dental Association. To assist memory, recommend Pycope Tooth Powder and a Pycope Tooth Brush to the patient, in place of her usual brand. The mere sight of these different and unusual aids to mouth hygiene, serves to recall you and your instructions, helps to break down improper habit-patterns.
