Text from Pages 1 - 188 of the 1946 volume:

The Class of February 1946, having pursued a course of study in Dentistry under a program of acceleration necessitated by War, now stands ready to enter a peaceful world as professional men. We approach the practise of our chosen profession with humility, well trained by our instructors, and ready to serve mankind to the utmost of our ability. FOREWORD As Dentists, each and every one of us, in our services to patient and community, shall strive for the highest standards for a two-fold purpose: first, that by our actions we uphold the fine tradition of our Alma Mater; and, secondly, by the same token, we aid in the advancement of the profession of Dentistry in its rightful place among the healing arts.Dedication  . . Never in the history of human conflict have so many owed so much to so few . . . '' WINSTON CHURCHILL With peace a reality and plans being drawn for the construction of a better world in which people of all races, creeds, and colors may work, play, and live amicably together, it seems but fitting that we pause here to honor the men whose combined effort made this dream of ages an actuality. Each one. for his own reasons, gathered up the things in life most dear to him and cast them into the scales of the Fates. Each one. in a manner that best fitted his individual talents, took up arms against the powers of aggression. With respect to those who made the supreme sacrifice in order that we. our children, and our children's children might enjoy benefits they knew they could never live to see. there is little we could write comparable to the marks they have made in the annals of history with their blood. We may all be proud of the fine record the Dental Profession has made for itself on the battlefields and in the camps of the past war. To all the Temple University School of Dentistry alumni who served with the Armed Services of the United States, and especially to those of them who died for profession and country, we humbly dedicate our efforts. Michael A. Dobosh ...................... '27 Louis R. Katz . .........................'26 Joseph J. Koslowski......................'43 Alexander P. Suer...................... .'38 IN APPRECIATION TO DR. SANDMAN: The fact that the Senior Class, to a man, will leave Temple University Dental School with the same grand opinion of Dr. Sandman, in itself attests to his ability to make lasting friendships and his interest in his students. From our first contact with ' Uncle George ' in our Sophomore Crown and Bridge technic classes, we were impressed. Our admirotion and affection for him increased whenever we met him on the clinic floor and in the classrooms in our Junior and Senior years. Appreciation Dr. Sandman has always been ready to lend assistance to his students with their technical or clinical requirements; he has always lent a sympathetic ear to their woes, he has cheerfully expended his time and his energy in their behalf. We, of the Odontolog Staff, are particularly indebted to Dr. Sandman for his aid in compiling this volume and his cheerful spirit when the going was rough. In dedicating this page to him, we can only echo the feeling that lies in the heart of every Temple Dental Student when we say: Sincerity, understanding, and professional integrity—these are the qualities of the man.by I he CLASS l-ebruary 1946 flempie 11niuersi I ij School of t enlislrij PHILADELPHIA PENNSYLVANIA TEMPLE UNIVERSITY fCWTAL - PHARV' CY L13RARY 3223 N.

As the first class of this peace-time era, you who are the 1946 graduates of the Dental School are about to be presented with an opportunity and a responsibility. The war depleted the ranks of your profession. At the same time, it revealed the need which the nation has for your skill. Selective Service data show conclusively that millions of our people are not meeting minimum standards of dental health. This is a condition that must be remedied by better health education which you will help to supply. It also calls for a larger number of well-trained dentists, and your availability now will be a timely response to that call. You are entering your profession at a time when its demands are heavy. The period of the war brought advances in dental methods and techniques, and since progress begets» progress, further advance may be expected at an accelerated rate. You will keep abreast of it, of course. I hope you also will contribute to it. As you take leave of us, be assured that the best wishes of the University go with you. I am confident you will fulfill with distinction the requirements of your task.TO THE CLASS OF FEBRUARY 1946, For the past three years you have been living in anticipation of what you have now actually achieved, and your hopes are high for the future. You have been privileged to enter a noble profession at a time when your services will be much in demand, at a time when good service will be appreciated more than ever before. As graduates from the School of Dentistry, you can reflect honor upon your Alma Mater by practising your profession as she would have you do. Exercise skill and proficiency in the discharge of your duties; and so carry on your public and private affairs that your conduct will be an inspiration to others. To be sure, you are beginning your life's work under most trying conditions. Remember that those who ore in practise today have endured the hardships of the past few years without flinching or deviating from the line of duty that circumscribes ethical behavior. A profession's advancement is in direct proportion to the effort expended by the men and women who compose it. Therefore, give whole-heartedly to your calling, join its organizations, and be ever mindful that the heritage we now enjoy is due. largely, to the loyalty, vision, and devoted service of the educators and practitioners who have pre-ceeded us. As an alumnus, it is your duty to uphold and maintain the principles and standards of conduct as has been taught you at this University since by so doing, you will not only validate its training, but, also, increase its prestige. In thus expressing your gratitude to an institution of learning, you not only honor her but honor yourself, as well as dignify your profession. I hope that as graduates of the School of Dentistry, you will renew your pledge of loyalty to the school, honoring its traditions, reflecting its dignity and assisting its future development. May your acquired knowledge begin to serve you faithfully and well as stepping stones that will carry you forward and upward to the pinnacle of professional success. I personally, wish for each and every one of you a continued life of enthusiasm, happiness, and contentment. Sincerely, 4 a ------------------------------ Dean's MessageFaculty i JAMES R. THEODORE D.

The joy normally experienced by a Senior on his Day of Graduation, will this year be diminished by the absence of these men from the academic procession. To the memory of two fine gentlemen, whose acquaintance was an experience that will be long remembered by us all, we offer this prayer: The Lord bless thee and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, And be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance unto thee, And give thee peace.Senior ClassEDUARDO ARROYO-TORO Borbosa Street.

JOHN SALINES Treasurer ...................... RUDOLPH PALERMO Secretary .................... .. . . MILTON PANZER Student Council ....................................JEROME ROOKLIN The Struggle for the Golden “300” It wos on October 25. 1943, that we, the class of '47, with much uncertainty and little knowledge, mode our first stumbling steps in the moze tho? was Temple Dental School. At the time, our most serious problems were tho location of "Lower A" and Upper Amp”—we soon Icarnod that other problems were to follow. Adding to the confusion was the difficult task of orientating ourselves to a dual authority, represented on tho ono hand by Doan Timmons and the faculty, and on the other by Major LoVernc (Buy Bonds] Shiffer and the rest of his 3314 S.U. paragraph troopors. It suroly was a strange world that we were entering. Our lives soomcd to consist of a series of seemingly meaningless tasks: filing broaches to probo into the intestines of extracted teeth; pouring a-thousond-and-one plaster molds (where was the center-of-grovity of your capital?); wondering how the placement of tooth fragments upon funeral black cardboard was an indication of manual dexterity; and how to dissect out cadavers in Anatomy Lob without cutting ourselves with the scalpel- In oniy a short time, wo bocome resigned to tho routino of marching in Lit Brother's "No Man's Land." where gas masks to filtor out the dust would have been in order. At these times personalities began to emerge from the Freshmon Class. Eugene Borish wos able to achieve style even in army garb with his "too. too short" overcoat and trousers. The Camp Grant clique mode itsoif known with Phil McLaughlin. F. X. Finnerty, Norm Feldman. Folgorite Giorgio, ond Ed Brounstein aweing the novices by their military prowess ond seemingly unending succession of push-ups. When we got around to choosing our class officers, we found ourselves involved in porty politics for tho First time. After the smoke of battle cleared and the ballot boxes were opened the following results were announced: Max Victor was president, Radford Locke, vice-president, Margherito Juorcgi, the most beautiful—and only—girl in the class, was secretory; Donald Furey student council representative, and Jules Selkowitz holding the (money] bag. Wo emerged into the Sophomore class with an oir of confidence—didn't Dr. Timmons toll us wo wore a handpicked class. However, we still had Dr. Herman to deflate our ego with memories of tooth-carving. A new figure entered upon the scene, very British, and very sinccro. It did not take long to discover that Dr. James was to dominate our Sophomore yecr. Such classic phroses os "foilure of the »ooth band to atrophy," "a thickenin' of the lomina dura," ond "the pervortod metabolism of tho Amcloblast," became an integral ond omusing part of the James sessions. It was during this year that Armistice Day hod a doublo significance: for on November llth, Khaki gave way to Peg and Drape. ASTP was only a memory. Wo now wero on our way. The time hod como for us to transfor our skill (Ho!) from typodont and mannequin head to patients of flesh and blood—more the loiter we sadly admitted after our first attompts at prophyloxis. With the Germans fighting for "Lebensraum," tho Japs for "Asia for Asiatics," the United Nations for peace, wo had to got into the act; our fight was for tho attainment of 301 points in tho first month on the floor.

It wos very hot. "Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet . . ." so wo sottlod down, full of dotorminotion, to our first week of hard work . . . and then we had a month's vacation! Paradoxical as it may seem, the vacation was necessitated by a technicality—a little matter of the draft boards, Upon returning we did settle down to work. It was eight o’clock Monday morning. Evoryono was comfortably reclined in his individual plush-lined wooden amphitheater bench . . . the lights went out, shrouding the room in drowsy darkness. Out of the Stygian depths a staccato voice drawled: "Yo‘ all got to stop that silly noiso"; and wo wero on our merry way. Lecture after lecture followed, getting us more interested (and more entangled) in the fascinating subject of dentistry. Upstairs in the prosthetics lob thoy lot us open our gift boxes, each tied with a big ribbon, and ploy with all the little presents. Aftor this equipment was chcckod off. we all went into the plaster room and joined the conga line before ?he two. metal models. Hero, more than ever, making a good first impression had its importance, but it was not until we had approached the metal punch for the third or fourth time that it agreed to an introduction to our green cords. Of course, we really did get down to serious work in prosthetics, amazed at the in-tricocios of the technique, and even more amazed that we. lowly novices, could eventually turn out such work. Down the hall and oround the corner chills went up and down our spines as we filed and filed teeth in the operative lab. From filing wc progressed to drawing, and then carving them, until we knew every "hill and dale" in each and every tooth. Suddenly. Dental Materials came into the limelight. Capitals, those monuments of precision, were followed by ingots, polished brass plates, and "slump" tests. The "ploster bowl and spatula" became our "sword and shield"—if they hadn't already boon borrowed. "Scooter!" became a familiar cry—some denied it, some proudly odmitted it. and many envied it. As the weeks rolled by. we got to know each othor well; well enough to chooso Gono Konopka os our president, Frank Kane as vice-president, Evan Morrow as student council representative. Sal Petrucelli as secretory, and Gil Zayon os treasurer. As part of the function of the class as a unit, we participated in the Freshman-Sophomore Danco. It was here, in the atmosphere of a very chilly hall, that we really warmed up to one another. (In fact the fellows, in keeping with the informal friendliness, took off their jackets—to keep their dates warm.) There developed a now fooling of solidarity in the closs. Some of us ottoined a certain affectionote status in he closs, the type of thing one recoils years lotor— while combing his hair to cover the bold spot. "Speed Demon" Eddio Carbonaro chosing the automobile in which ho had loft his books . . . "Photofinish" Moe Birn-baum finishing his eternal breakfast during roll coll . . . " Mutt and Jeff" Johnny Hewson ond Frank Kane walking side by sido down Buttonwood Street . . . "John Nesbitt" Harris, whoso interesting stories mode ono forgot his troubles . . . "Spread Joy" Gil Zayon. whose personality lacked only a white beard to make him the ideal Santa Ciaus . . . "Rod" Perdue, who'd rather sleep than— well, anything . , . and many moro who holpod make the days shorter. Toward tho ond of our first semester a note of sombor-ness fell upon us as we learned that our much respected Dr. Schocterlo, Professor of Biochemistry and Dentol Materials, hod passed away. Ho carried with him much of the long-standing tradition of the school, willing us many fond memories of his determination and sincerity in molding earthy freshmen into worthwhile professional mon. This wo will only como to truly roalizo in future years. With tho end of the somestor, the feverishness of finalexams was followed by an important occasion. Discharges wore in ordor at the school, and the fifteen army boys in the class received their dipfoma-lik© papors. stating that they were now on their own in their travels (should one say, rother: "travails"?) through school. In contrast, the twenty- wo Navy boys romained with thoir "blues." The first shock of the second semester was the appearance of the dischargees (those in our class had come from the "real" army) in civilian clothes. This novelty soon wore off. as did the gome of adding up honor points in different combinations to moke the total greater. As class standings went up. so did many egos, but th© resumption of hard work soon lovoled them off ogain. Suddenly we were counting the weeks, then the days ana hours until the next set of finals (there wos some talk of instituting a mathematics course to help out some of the boys who preferred this pastime to getting their work done). After the ordeol of sleepless nights, benzedrine toblets ("I slept like a rock ). and other assorted study he'ps ("wait 'til I tell ?he folks how hard I studied ). he final exams once more wore "hos beens," and we went on vocotion, priming the pump for the: Sophomore Year It wos just a case of "boliovo it or not, we’re still here." Heods were held o little higher os we sophomores took our righteous place among the initiated of the school. With o new year come now courses, involving mony new experiences. Physiology, with its four hour lob probably provod the most fascinating of all—especially the extra-curricular activities. Mark Twain s frog races opened up the excitement, and many a loose frog is still scampering around the building. It wos here, in an isolated physiology laboratory that the drastic cigarette shortage was adverted—we smoked drums. "Totanus," "fatiguo" and "plateau" become bywords, and even though many an experiment failed, there was always a neighbor who shorod his research without so much as a footnote of credit. The operative lab became a hodge-podge of engine cords, instrument coses, ond typodonts. We learned how to work on the monnoquins with o mouth mirror—ond without (when "Uncle Louis " wasn't looking). We ieorned whot trituration was oil about, ond why gold foil shouldn't be used offer being dropped on the floor (ever try it?). Crown and Bridge ond summor moved in on us. and with tho heat, wo didn't “sweat our gold bands—we sweated over them. Major Rothner come bock from tho army to teach us Oral Hygiene and Prophylaxis and ovoryone (even those who novor touched the stuff) went out and bought a new toothbrush. We learned obout plones (which cro hoes, but really aren't), files, and orangewood sticks. Willard Adams, Arthur P. Adler, William Baker, John Bartolomew, Leonard Bornstein. Paul Biedling-meier.

Bortram Freiwirth."Soonor or lotor during tho course of the somestor" we drilled ourselves for the 64 dollar question—Oral Histology, and calling a slide a slide, we learned the very necessary whys and wherofors of tho structure of a tooth. Along about this timo wo hod new class elections, and Joo Siogolman was chosen to head the class for the ensuing year. Evan Morrow was elected to tho vice presidency, Frank Kane become student council representative: Will Adams, secretary; Charles Klein, treasurer, and Jerry Moray, independent representative. There followed a big league trade, in which "A" section arranged to take monthly turns with "B for that classless Saturday. This satisfied everyone, except the oporativo staff—they were thcro in any caso. With time we amossod a now vocabulary of famous expressions: "The upper teeth overlap tho lower teeth . . . 'lub dup' . . . shut up!! . . . what’s your initial . . . for the second part of our class today, we will have eight hundred and ninety-six Kodochromes . . . Gentlemen. I will stand for no snafu . . . this is the real thing, guys . . . where? . . . I'm o lazy man . . , where’s your larerol, doctor? ... I had a patient whose third molar came out with my Fingers . . . 'bridging' . . ." and mony more that will lingor as fond memories. With tho coolor foil months came our class’s contribution to the Temple football teom—Johnny Hewson (already a bosketboll stor) ond Evan "Moose Morrow. At the some time the Rho Rho Club (the majority of which was in our class) become a chapter of Delta Sigma Delto. national denial fraternity, and congratulations and new pins were in order. Deep sorrow struck tho class when Dr. McFarland. Our much honored and respected Professor of General Pathology, passed away. He left a void impossible to fill. As time went by we gained the confident and pleasurable feeling that we were now in dentistry up to the hilt, and in spite of the fact that frog races gave way to turtle races, we were seriously ongrossed in our work. A "bridge" meant more than the Golden Gate, "previous separation" more than a divorce, ond "rubber dam" more than tho Grand Coulee. As Christmas holidays passed final exams, followed by tho littlo pink "rejection slips" (with the "E's" written in blood) were anticipated, but paramount in our minds is the ever-approaching day when we will step Out on the clinic floor wearing shiny, new white gowns.

HELLMAN A L P II A Though Temple Alpha Omegons can trace the birth of their family tree at this institution as far back as 1914, it was in the year 1907 that the dental students of Baltimore and Philadelphia met to form the framework of Alpha Omega Fraternity. To bring this history to date, records show that in 1931 Alpha Omega merged with Alpha Zeta Gamma Fraternity, and the resultant organization retained the name of the former body. There is no doubt that these mergers were beneficial and strengthening, for today we are proud to relate that we have thirty-three 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 the past years, we have striven toward achieving these ideals, always trying to bring more honor to our fraternity. Proud of the ideals and goals set by the high standards of Alpha Omega Fraternity, our Theta Ramach Chapter, here at Temple, has always attempted to conduct itself in a manner befitting these worthy principles. Theta Ramach sincerely hopes the Senior Class will meet with complete success in attaining not only their ultimate goal in dentistry, but also their aim in life.

BUHLER Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity was founded at the University of Michigan on November 15, 1882, by seven members of the student body at that school. Thus, it is the oldest dental fraternity in the world; and, the first fraternity to restrict its membership to dental students or practitioners of dentistry. On February 23, 1884, the fraternity established the Supreme Chapter, the graduating seniors of that year becoming the charter members. They elected the first Supreme Officers on March 7, 1884. During the intervening years, thirty-four chapters have been instituted at the various dental colleges throughout the country, the latest addition being the Rho Rho chapter here at Temple University School of Dentistry. On August 29. 1944, the first meeting of the Rho Rho Club as it was then known, was called to order. The motivating figure of this new organization was Dr. Robert Fexa, 44, a member of the Operative Dentistry staff. The club-members worked earnestly and faithfully, and, after a patient wait of thirteen months, were chartered by Delta Sigma Delta on the evening of September 18, 1945. The impressive installation rites were performed at the Epsilon Chapter House, University of Pennsylvania Dental School. Rho Rho chapter feels that great strength has been attained in the accomplishing of our fraternal inspirations and professional ideals by our association with Delta Sigma Delta. We hope to promote the quality of leadership and create a sphere of good influence at the school, and in so doing, feel that the addition of the Temple University Chapter will be a prominent step toward the betterment of the individual and his professional future in dentistry.

Since then this organization has initiated approximately 22.000 members, many of whom have contributed much to the national organization and dental educational advancement. There have been eleven Psi Omegans who have served as presidents of the American Dental Association, and J. Ben Robinson, past President-Elect, is the Supreme Grand Master of the Fraternity. The head of the Army Dental Corps during World War II. Brigadier General Robert H. Mills is also a member of Psi Omega. Psi Omega was a charter member of the Professional Interfraternity Council, and for many years the only dental fraternity in that organization. Many changes have taken place since the inception.

To our senior froters. this signifies the culmination of four years of hard work and achievement. The day of graduation is near, and we of S. E. D. join in wishing you the best of luck in the future. Attending school in peacetime was. at best, not too easy, but the misfortune of war imposed a still greater burden upon your shoulders. The customary vacations were replaced by sheltering summers in the clinic. The uncertainty of the future loomed overhead, constantly harassing. To those who came from distant places, the fraternity took the place of home. Here tne hours arter school were spent in fellowship and recreation. lightening the mood o study and making the work of the next day easier to approach. Here. also. you came to Icnow and understand your fellows, to agree or disagree with them, but to gain a lasting friendship with them oil. Men to whom you could turn in moments of crisis. Now you are no longer embryo dentists, but take your place in a revered profession whose post is marked by accomplishments and whose future holds the promise of still greater achievements in the field of public health.

PETER P. TROZZO ______JOSEPH REICH WILLARD D. ADAMS ..ANDREW DePAOLO X I p s I Xi Psi Phi Fraternity was founded February 8. 1889, at the University of Michigan with Lewis C. Thayer, whose determination was largely responsible for its creation, as the first president. Gamma chapter at Temple, then the Philadelphia Dental College, was chartered in 1894. The basis of the Fraternity has, from the beginning, been a simple under-standing of the principles of knowledge, morality, and friendship. Here at Gamma the past year has been marked by improvement. The House itself admirably depicts the spirit, for changes wrought by a host of interior decorators are evident the moment one opens the front door. Improvements to the laboratories and the addition of new equipment is indicative of the increasing amount of work done here. Carrying a determined spirit onto the athletic field, our performance was admirable. Our softball team was undefeated in Interfraternity League competition : in addition, our basketball team has compiled on admirable record. Gamma salutes its graduating seniors. These men are a credit not only to their profession, but also to their fraternity. Their efforts here have been effective and appreciated: but. much more important was their influence on the underclassmen. Their splendid example served os a stimulus to their colleagues, awakening hidden potentialities and spurring them on to greater achievements.

The aim of the society is the furtherance of the principles and ideals of the senior society among dental undergraduates: and the dissemination of newer scientific developments. Temple's record has been unique: every man on the roster of the school has been a member of the Association since its inception. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Friday of the month in the Amphitheater, and on imposing list of lecturers have appeared on the platform.

The Phi Beta Kappa of dentistry had its inception with the class of 1914 of Northwestern University Dental School. On March 17. 1936. the Supreme Chapter, authorized the formation of a chopter of Omicron Kappa Upsilon at Temple University Dental School to be known as Kappa Kappa Chopter Membership in the National Honorary Scholastic Dental Society is limited to twelve per cent of a graduating class, which is selected by faculty action at the completion of the senior year. All members of the faculty possessing a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree are eligible for membership in the society after having served upon the staff for four years. The present officers are: Honorary President President Vice-President Secretary-T reasurer Dean Gerald D. Timmons Dr. Raymond C. Walter Dr. R. J. Forbes Dr. Carl E. McMurrayFeaturesHistorical Sketch The Philadelphia Dental College, which became the Dental School of Temple University in 1907. was organized by Dr. John H. McQuillen and several professional associates in the fall of 1862, a charter for the new school being gronted by an act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania in the spring of 1863. In November of the some year a competent faculty was secured and the fyst term of the school was inaugurated. At that time there were but three other dental schools in the United States; now there ore thirty-nine. Besides keeping abreast of the constont advances in dental education and drawing to itself students from every civilized country, this school made a noteworthy departure in first incorporating into its curriculum the study of Oral Surgery. To Professor James E. Garretson, for mony years Dean of the Faculty, and a noted and skillful surgeon, is due the credit for this innovation, and also for the organization and establishment of the first hospital, formerly known os the Garret-son Hospital, now a port of the Temple University Hospital, devoted to the surgical treatment of diseoses and lesions of the mouth, the teeth, and associate parts. In 1907, by mutual agreement, the Philadelphia Dental College was token over by Temple University, the latter institution acquiring possession of the ground, buildings, equipment, and good will of the former and taking entire charge of its management. The Temple University Dental School is a member of the American Association of Dental Schools, and conforms to all the requirements of this organization. Its diploma is recognized by the National Association of Dental Examiners and the National Board of Dentol Examiners. Dr. S. Greenbaum Dr. J. H. McQuillen Dr. J. E. GarretsonThe Senior Closs History The nebuloe of the dontol school found thomsolves on ♦he threshold of tho school on a dork and dreary day in February, 1943. This group consisted of the men that on this bright day in February, 1946, will go for h into tho treacherous clutches of humankind. To us whether thoro bo snow, rain, or a tornado, that day will bo lovely. Bu to speak about February llth, we must retrogress and see tho factors thot hovo brought us this for. Many of us recall thot incident, called on interview, with ’ho man who sat bohind tho dosk in on offico in the air-raid shelter on Buttonwood Street. How frightened we were of that gentleman Our answers to his possible quostions were well planned beforo said interview took place; however, now after four long school years we have come to realize that Dr. Timmons (who is that man) WOS os much on the spot os we wero. Wove been told time and time again that we were the Dean's c ass, and it was with this label thot we’ve gone through Temple. Nevertheless, once the ordeal of interrogation was over, wo found ourselves ready to ombork upon our dontal careers. The freshman year was the first nightmare thot many a student ever experiences. Our courses woro mony, but our headaches well outnumbered our coursos. We con well remember our first anatomy laboratory period. It was with fear ond trepidation that mony of us lifted the veils from the cadavers. Smelling salts and assuring words were the only mediccments available and the good Doctors Miller, Ronkin. Schobinger. Butz and Holland were not prolific with handouts. Jimmy Sullivan was tokon far doys afterword’s as a character from a "Buck Rogers" world of green men; Goldanna Cromer was wondering if she really meant to go to Dental School after all. But, os always, timo mode us immune to tho odors and attitudes that resulted from this laboratory period. Why, Matthews, Weintroub, 8owman and mony others becomo so immune to tho ordeals of cadaver-carving that thoy organized o now course in the locker room. It was then that Dr. Timmons found out that New York City was not the only place with a "21" club. The freshman ycor also sow us under the tutelage of the late Dr. Schacterle. He was the only teacher wo ever had that enjoyed rubbing salt into our opon wounds. Irv Kaufman still recoils the time that he received on "E" because he finished on experiment too soon without knowing his proteins. It was here that Sam Mollis ond Lorry Tublin decided that Rowan ond "Shoe" had no desire for the Pennsylvania R. R. to moke money from dontal students. To this day there isn't one of us that can't romombor these words: "Hey you—you’d bettor toke notos ond stop sleeping, causo the end of the term will find you with plenty of ime to sleep . . .," and invariably everybody in the class, including Dicker and Behrens, thought "Schoc" was looking at him. Histology, offored by Dr. Leitch, was another subject in our freshman curriculum. For this course all of us gratefully and sincerely give our thanks. The good doctor was so obliging! He always gave his lectures with lights out and allowed all of us to catch up on sleep lost ovor the weekend. For affirmation of this we need only ask Roeck, Reis and the other Ocean City cowboys. It wos during this year that Procter and Gamble showed a 100% increase in soap soles, duo to the soap carvings required by the Operative deportment. We learned during this course thot every student must do his own work in every laboratory course, but despite this fact Sammcrtino ond Knost ore still enjoying profits from their soap carving royalties. The grand epoch of our first year was the introduction of the A.S.T.P. program. Wo bocome soldiers (pardon tho lough by Sgt. Schoitler), despite the disparaging remarks made about town. Nevertheless wo did wear uniforms. We do realize one thing, that never in the history of T.D.S. was there so much money in fho students’ pockets. The Dean seeing that prosperity was now hero for the dontol school attempted to alleviate the situ- ation and opened a recreation hall where many a student on the second day of the month found himsolf in the catagory of the averaqe civilian student—BROKE! Adolph Bruni was appointed commander of the Freshmen platoon. Fortunately for Al tho rotation of officers occurred weekly, for ho was a morked mon. There were plots and schemes to waylay him in some dark alley, in order to "wiso him up." William Walkor was the "General" in charge of tho school's company and to this day curses are still ringing down on his poor, but unlamonfod. skull. Tho one good feature, however, was Bruce Ericson, tho amiable and well-liked lieutonont placed in chargo of tho school by the U.S.A. Lost, but not least, let us not forgot tho inspections givon us by Major Schiffer and his little "Schiff." A vote was token to soo who was more observant. "big Schiff or little Schiff." the little b---d won hands down! Som Mollis was our first class President ond he made a wondorful job of it, even though the A.O. boys will not admit it. So it went, trials, tribulations, heartaches and hoart-breaks all through 1943, until at lost wo now found ourselves going info the Sophomore year. We made this move almost in toto. but as alwoys is the case of a military body, our advance was mado with some losses. Instocd of the originol 92 students we now were down to 88 brave, but no hardy soldiers. Realizing our now enviablo position as sophomores wo buckod up a bit, both in spirit and in the number of married men. The latter was made possible by our good Uncle Sam. We now a folt that wo wore well on our way, troubles lessoned ond our chances for success increased. The curriculum offered to us this yoor wos now manifold ond much more interesting. We had two courses givon by Dr. Frederick James, honorary president, chairman. ond founder of the right ©nvioble Honorary Frederick James Society, and repoat the same for the Isoioh Dorr Socioty. The titles of the courses escapo us for the moment, but they were definitely the highlight of our sophomore year. Wo drew pictures, sow pictures, cut out picturos, and anything else dealing with pictures, wo performed in his classes. It was during the advonturo of studying under Dr. James that our class learned of the existence of tho sooscouts. It con bo said, however, thot of all the studonts. Dick Matthews ond Joe Reich enjoyod Dr. James' courses the most. They procticolly insisted on studying along with him months after the courses wore completed. Neivin Rubin and Jerry Mones oscoped with tho enviable record of being tho first two members of ony class for the post oight years to be given membership in the Dorr Society. They did a paper on "Pregnoncy ond Its Effects on Dental Conditions." It was soon after this that Jerry became betrothed. Many of us thought that Jorry was carrying his experiments a bit too far, but time has told us how wrong we were. Tho boys really started to know ono another during the Sophomore year. Lou Loscalzo took off his dark glasses and wo all got to calling him "Lou." simply because wo now were able to recognize him. Bowman ond Blackwell, Finkelstein and Semler wore shoring tho title of Damon ond Pythias with fho lottor team finally winning tho honor due to tho fact that Bob Bowman took unto himself a wife and Dick Blackwell is now one of a triumvirate. It was during this year that the Harmony Boys come into being, and let us not overlook the fact it. was the year thot Charlie Hare became the watchman for Dean Timmons' office—oh JOY! During our Sophomore year we were once again plagued with Dr. Grisbaum—"youse remember him"! He's the fellow who forgot to pay Phil Mogil for the nylons, the fellow who re-sold us our own equipment. In othor words he taught us the fine art of Prosthesis. Wo also had anothor year under Uncle Louie ond his lieutenants. This course we all liked; not only because of the work, but the teachors involved were a "swoll bunch of guys."A definite redooming factor of our second year was our introduction to Dr. Sandman. A nicer fellow and a better teacher cannot bo had. To write or spook about Dr. Sondman in length would toke too much time and space. Our best way of showing our esteom for him is the fact that wo have appointed him our advisor for the Odontolog. Other courses offered us were: Orthodontia by Dr. Marcus, the man who was the first to pass every member of tho class in any one subject. This we'll never forget. Bacteriology by Dr. Lieberknight, who acquainted us with gentian violet and ribald jokes. Materia Medico by Dr. John "The Affable One Buhlor. John was os new to us as we were to him and the course he offered was now to both. (Remember tho outlines fellows?) Dr. Pallcrdy was another new thorn in our side, but it turned out thot this ‘horn hod a blunt end and its look was worse than its prick. He lectured to us— (enough said). While speaking of Drs. Buhlor and Pallcrdy it would be well to note thot it was at this period in our dontol education that wo aII come to notice o moteor floshing over the horizon up on the 3rd floor in the person of Paul Kessler. You all know him. he s Irv Richman’s brother-in-law. Tho Sophomore yeor saw Benny "Tho Wonderful" Wolfer starting on his coroor of telling all of us how good his work was. Chris DiPotrillo and Milt Robinson emerged os tho master carvers for techniquo work. Harry Roson never without his good conduct bodgo and coke of ice divided his time between dreaming up fantastic yarns about his "ormy" experiences, and performing odious litt.'e tricks on his fellow students. (Somo follows never learn the "Golden Rule !) This year sow Jay Yampoisky come to the foreground as the chief exponent for PM and Joe Termini in like capacity for the Daily Nows. It was now thot Vince Biondo come into his own—the enviable record of never being in class on time. How we oil envied his sleeping hours: thot is all oxccpt Nat Coyne, becouse he sleeps whether standing up or lying down. The Sophomore year saw many boys of our class learn how to ploy pinochlo. This bocomo so popular that tho "21" club faded into oblivion. The cause for the latter was now attributed to the pharmacy "boot-leggers", who were considered a bad influence. The Junior closs at this time wore very patient with us and taught us all wo shouldn't know of tho gome, so that we were able to finance their weekend escapades. Despite the Junior closs's effort. Lubin. Weintroub and c few others become so proficient at tho art of pinochlo thot they had to form thoir own games: and to this day they aro still thriving on their prowess. The only thing that hos put a crimp into their income is Lou s Chancellor Bar which features the "Piccadilly Pipers." And so it went, and before we realized it we hod reached the point where onothor advance was mado. With slight casualties we became Juniors. This was a never to be forgotten experience. How proudly we went down to bo fitted for our clinic gowns. There wasn’t one of us who didn't stand in front of the mirror and remark how professional he looked in his white jacket. Finally the dey came around for us to be ready for our rubber dom drill and student prophylaxis. The standard conversation for those few doys was: "Let me do it to you first, then I'll sit for you." Who was to bo who’s guinea pig was the big problem and the moot question. Woll, dospito arguments, fights and what wont with it. everyone emerged unscathed. Then for weeks on end we cluttered up the diagnostic room looking for patients, but fearing to take one. The braver ones went ahead and soon were strutting around like peacocks because they hod made some points. Goldstick and Schwartz had set up headquarters in the Pediodontia clinic. Our class now mot the rest of the faculty. In tho Operative deportment wa were introduced to Dr. Roy-mond Welters, professor in charge. (Ho frightened us.) Then of course thero was Mr. Esquire, bettor known as Dr. Porrocco; Dr. Costnor. or "Davo" os we knew him 6 months before: Dr. Doyle, who can olwoys be found off the clinic floor; Dr. Hess: Dr. Carmick- Dr. Forbos; D-. Quinn, Jr., tho mannequin; Dr. Subin, tho studont's delight; and a Dr. Rofhner, who just returned from overseas, who we oI' considered a welcome edition. In the Crown and Bridge deportment wo had th'e delightful experience of meeting Dr. Evelyn Volpo, to whom we'd rother not spook about dentistry; Dr. Ewing, a rogulcr guy if ever there was one Dr. Lord and his hemostats; and of course, our old friend Dr. Sandman. Then on to the prosthetic department whore we were introduced to Drs. Solorno. McMurry, better known as Mike ond Mac; ond Dr. Dorothy Waugh. In the surgery clinic we met, at long last, the legendary Mrs. Woods, ond really •'» oil were delightfully pleased, even if she a d think we were a bunch of snips. Tho instructors here were Dr. Henry. Dr. Stetzer and once again Dr. "Smiles" Buhlor. The Junior yoor saw many of our closs gain tho recognition that they missed out on in their first two years by showing what they could do on tho clinic floor; ond needless to soy the clinic floor proved to be quite a battlefield. If it weren't for Dr. Walter s daily round♦able discussion in the dorkness of the bosement, whero he listened to the "gripes" of the students, the clinic floor would most probobly be strewn with tho blood and limbs of both students and instructors. The crown and bridge laboratory for tho Junior year was under the control of Dr. Ewing and to say this is to say that it was enjoyed by all of us. Prosthetics laboratory was begun under the tutelage of Dr. Essig, but due to a slight altorcation between Dr. Pallardy and a few chosen students we wore shiftod to the back lab where we found ourselves hedged in by Hedges, better known as G-2. This was a three-hour period, and it was horo thot we didn't seo so much of tho aforementioned "moteor" as we were required to uso the school's laboratory, whoroas the meteor had one right around the corner with Dr. X. It was in this Junior year that we finally got to know that namo. on the surgery clinic door; Dr. Cameron. He lectured tb us on orol surgory and exodontia. We decided as a class that he was even bettor than we expected him to be. Dr. Buhler for the second year in succession confronted us with a subject known as Anesthesia. Tho examinations givon us woro so difficult thot "Tho Affable One" decided one student in our class must have chected because his grades were too good. (How could you tell that John?—we’d all like to know.) The greatest bone of contention in our third year was the course titled "Internal Modicino," offorea by Dr. John Kolmer. The course always kept the class seriously interested. The only fault with the course was the tests given us periodically— it kept us all "cramming" unnecessarily. All in all our Junior year was just filled with work, and despite all the troubles our curriculum gave us, Undo Som decided ho had enough of us, so our beloved A.S.T.P. program was terminated. This wouldn't have been so bad for too many of us except that coupled with tho cigarotto shortage, and Tublin's chiseling, the dental students' doprossiori ora was horo and it looked like it meant to stay. Now for the third time we reached the end of a school year and wo found ourselves prepared to onfer our Sonior year—BOY! what a sensation. Examinations woro taken, all technique had been handed in and the Senior year was achieved. Our number now totaled 79 students. After a brief vacation which was spent by tho mojority of the boys os salesmen for the A. S. Bock Shoo Stores we were ready to return and put our noses to the grindstone. Mr. A. S. Beck was very happy. Now wo woro considered "wisenod students" and most of us found no difficulty in getting started. Tho majority of the closs were making their points and folt that this year would prove a lot simpler than the previous onos we hod labored through. Our coursos woro not too plentiful or too difficult. A few now ones were instituted, namely: Technical Composition. This period proved to bo on outlot for all tho pent-up inhibitions on our own part; Nutrition, where we all were taught how and what to eat; and. last but not least, a sorios (two to bo exact) of locturos on tho subject of Public Health-. Dr. D. Waugh and her drawings took over the reigns os Prosthetic lecturer. We'll never forget her inasmuch as sho gave us the fairost examination wo'vo over tokon in this school. Dr. Subin again was one of the locturors, this time the topic was Oral Diagnosis. Dr. Campbell told us in Proctiso Management how we could all retire within 15 yocrs. The highlight was our affiliotion with tho second Robert E. Lee that the south sent up north. This timo Robt. Lee was successful. He completely captivated wo northerners. He lectured on the subject of Jurisprudence. "You all know of course that he passod tho entire class. Our laboratory technique this year wes held at a minimum. It heralded a return engagement of the Baglivo Three Ring Circus'—only like oil good shows which attempt to catch the public eye offer being out of the limelight for awhile, the circus’s name was changed—to "Ceramics." Baglivo was simply astonished at the beautiful porcelain work ho received. The lower grades in the closs wore givon those students whose work was done by the L and W laboratory. This combination made up from two members of our class said that their only gripe was that the stuaents whose work they did got better grades from Baglivo than they did themselves. But seriously, $ay what you will about tho lab period, we all know thot when it comes to learning some fine dentistry and enjoying every minute of the time in which it is being taught, tho best way to get it is from Dr. Baglivo. Now that wo have come to the end of our long "plastery" and treacherous trail we can only soy "By the grace of God ond the student next to me. I made it." Wo must all admit, now that the dental terminal has been recched. that despite the aggravation we hod, and gave, to the teachers, plus the heartaches and heartbreaks, wo will look bock in the years to come and realize all the flaring up of tempers and losing of patience was our own fault. That whot they attempted to teach us, regardless of our own attitude was for our bonefit. We moy not realize it now to tho full o» ent but the future alone, we know, will givo to those men who nurtured uS. tho thanks they rightfully deserve.A Dream of the Old School Tie One bloc Monday morning I awaited on habiluolly disappointing patient, making the morning ever so much more blue than it really was. The minuses were engthen-ing into hours and soon I was to bo found, reclining lengthwise in slumber, occupying th potentio! seoting capacity of three or ;our patients. Aimost suddenly I was thrust into a delightful drcom which was to top my ropertoire of memorable dreams, and ultimately elevate me to the position of number one dream raconteur . . . . . . Out of a misty cloud. I was seated in o large red plush Morris chair in the Union League Club. Around mo, seated in stagnant contentment, o group of retired gentlemen were dosing over their gin and tonics or were engaged in watching a cool game of chess. As the evening progressed, os usual, the discussion among ihe sedate, refined, and established professionals, turned to the days of their youth and their achievements in that period. A dignified lawyer sighed a lawyer's sigh, and, with a proud g'-eom of reminijence in his eyes, fondly potted his well-developed abdomen and said, "Yes sir, I was a Harvard man.' This was spoken in a tone designed to awe us all. Silence ensued for a briof moment as we all contemplated the marvel of our companion's boyhood. Then a brilliant accountant, stroking his bald scalp, said: "Well do I recall those brilliant days at good old Yale. You con': beat a Yale mon." Thus it continued, this old mens discussion, for a while, everyone contributing his collegiate background. The industrial tycoon re-lived his Pennsylvania days. The engineer and tho heart-specialist reconstructed their college days ond boasted naturally, of their respective positions as Princeton and Johns Hopkins olumni. Then come an oven more prolonged and embarrassing silence as they anxiously awaited my contribution. But no luck, for I wos reticent. They pecrod at ooch other, fumbling their newspopors. "Why. man—-this is tho Union League Club! You hove to own a card to gain entronce. because, after oil, the common robbie cannot be accommodated!" Tho group wo; dumbfounded at my silence, even after such a statement Sitting noncholonrly and looking at the ceiling, my ire was soon oroused and I broke the silence by auspiciously announcing: I om o Temple Dental Man." It is remorkable how the composure of tho group was restored and the old chumminess resumed once again. Suddenly the realization downed upon them: Temple Dental is not in he Blue Book! Since I commenced t would make matters worse if I colled o holt. So I bugon casually. “Yes, gentlemen, I was a Templo Dental man. I orn sure wc are of the some calibre as any of your men." Assuming o bolligcrent otfitude, the lawyer broached •ho subject. "Frankly doctor. I don't think your men ore of the same calibre os our olumni of Harvard ond Yale." Thus. I wos colled upon to defend myself. "Come to think of it, what has Harvard got thor Temple Dental has no», except Harvard Mon ? The memories I hove of my school con surely be compared with your institution. Teachers are tecchers wherever one finds them. There is still the commencement of lecture classes, ond thcro ;s still that outburst of pent up emotion when tho conclusion of the closs is opproaching." At this, the worthy lawyer voiced indignation or my impudence. Twiddling his thumbs, he soid: "At Harvard we've got a huge campus, splendidly paved, and dotted with trees." "Didn't you ever hear of the Templo Dontal Campus? Why every student tremblingly recalls the compos at Temple Donfal School. True it wos only a narrow poved road and sidewalk in ;ront of the school on Buttonwood Street; and what if any rain converted the lot near the recreation room into nice brown slushy mud? It was our campus!" The engineer intended to put an end to this motter immediately. Ho exhibited a Phi Beta Kappa key and said: "Whot have you to compare with this?' "Why. every olumnus specks in hushed voice as he tells of the society keys at Temple Dental School. There is one for the Kolmer Society, Jomcs Society, Dorr Society, and OKU. The crcom of the crop was in these societies. Theso men ore going places, os was predicted by the speakers o: the commencement. Phi Beta Kappa, indeed! I'll bet that if you go into any pawn shop you will find twico as many OKU keys as Phi Bota Kappa keys." That sfopped them for a moment. They got into a huddle and emerged with sly. victorious grins. I was looked upon sympathetically as the Penn man said: "Think of the sfirrinq sight of Penn's oarsmen as they sweep up the Schuylkill River. This is the exalted sport rowing at its best." For a moment, dentistry at Temple seemed doomed. The club president was about to demand my membership card, but I reinforced mysolf and blotcntly sounded off: "Not so quickly my ostemed friends.” The audacity of the remark left them aghast. Nonchalantly I spoke: "True, gentlemen. Temple Dental School is inconvenienced insofor os Buttonwood Street is not hydrated nor fit for a rowing crew. But have you in Harvard, or your other Yankee institutions, a recreation room loaded with blackjack and pinochle contestants? Whot can compare with these two indoor sports whose memories oro a hundredfold more enduring than your olite rowing teoms! And. of course, it isn't necessary to compare endowment funds—the present senior class of Tomple Dental has the most potential spirited endowment givers yet to pass out from within its four wolls." I wos sorry I caused that havoc in the Union Leaguo Club, and among the proud possessors of meroly worthless coltoge titles. No more was I ploguod with the proud boosts of Harvard men. For "I WAS A TEMPLE DENTAL MAN!" . . . ... As from a distance I was awakened by the sound of words: "Doctor, doctor, doctor!!—I'm here—won't you please take care of my eeth." How lovely o dream, and furthermore how lovely it feels to see my patient in the flesh, begging for dental attention!On the clinic floor we sweat and strain For a measly point we rack our brain. Change this, change that, it's not right, Where's the Instructor? He's out of sight. For it can't be done, no matter how hard we try Because Ray, you made the points too high! Remove decay, straighten your walls, Put in the cement base, and out it falls. We’re the Dean's class chosen with care. But on the clinic floor, try to get a chair. For it can't be done, no matter how hard we try Because Ray, you made the points too high! The preparation is on a third molar, Use rubber-dam, even though it's a lower. Plug a Class two, out of desperation, For twenty-five points it's worth the aggravation. But it can't be done, no matter how hard we try Because Ray, you made the points too high! Set up at 8:30 to start on time, Kicked off at quarter after nine. It was Junior day. but we really tried To get some of those points you made so high. We sit in lecture and stare at the wall To figure a way to make the big haul, Well, it was done, and we really did try, But Ray. why did you make the points so high? The Seniors EulogyRetrospect Prologue: All things look good in retrospect, Our feelings then we will correct In future years when we recall Our days at Temple Dental School. But for Now— Lockers: Each new semester we worry more, Our stuff is high upon the floor, Equipment lying in the aisles, But Doctor Buhler only smiles. Indiana: Let us sing our Wabash blues, Grisbaum—Pallardy, who can choose. Our work is harder now you see, Thanks to Indiana's three. Prosthetics: Pal is head of Prosthedontia, Beware of castings they're gonna haunt'cha But Pallardy to us is dear Ha! No technique the senior year. Root Canal: Broaches, files, Albert's jar, Drives a rather swanky car. Fill the canal to the tip of the root, Eddie Subin. man he's zoot! Pediodontia: Pedo clinic's where we slave Thanks to Casto, Beatty, Updegrove, A cavity is a submarine— Some day you’ll see just what we mean. Sophomore Year: Of those days no one comploins. There wos Donnelly, Scott, Freddy James. The sea-scout climbed the mighty mast, And told us of the Ameloblast. Periodontia: The war was over, over there, A casualty—he lost his hair. But Major Rothner as he is called, With periodontia drives us bald. Epilogue: Suffering breeds the healing art of great, Misery fills the bleeding heart of fates. Our Profession, dentistry, to each us dear, Temple days we leave behind, but not without a tear. YOUTHFUL YOMMO TURNS FASCIST Wild rumors which divulge Youthful Yommo" is a Fascist were proven today when the Phoney Molars'' crock editors trapped "Youthful Yommo" stiff arming his patients in the chair. Methodically, we hove gathered a mountain of evidence confirms his guilt. As this article goes to press. ' Yodeling Yommo’’ can be out of clinic acres drinking up all the German beer in county. Dr. Walter reports that Yommo's gold foiling will undermine the U. S. gold reserve. Reliable sources tell us that "Yearning Yommo" is seeking newer and more mysterious secret formulas. Operative men go so far os to point an accusing finger in their report that 'Yokum Yommo" fovors the toothless type of patient where operative procedure is contraindicated (naturally). Our agent, Axial Wall, asserts that Yommo’s palatial consisting of one entire room is loaded with black shirts. When questioned, Yommo answered, 'But of course, they are to be the operative gowns of the future!" ramIK emeniber When.... .

My Lord! When working hard in crown and bridge, M.O., cut the marginal ridge. Then oh, my Lord—even though you plea, "Change it to an M.O.D." The casting polished—wait, don't cement! You listen then with discontent. Then oh, my Lord—an agonizing frown, "Change it to a % crown." At last the abutment seems perfected, And truly, it seems well selected. And then if happens, as usual, Oh, no, Dr. Lord—not a cast occlusual! Between 12 and 1 Among the shouts of kibitzers In the smoke-filled room. A group of Seniors sit around A table filled with gloom. Each time one ployed a card His eyes were sharp and keen; His hands would shake bit. What would a false move mean? A smile shone on my partner's face As the card hit with a thump. But it was changed into a smirk When I was forced to trump. It's getting late and time to go A nervous player said. Just five more minutes left to play: And watched the next card led. "I'm sorry, fellows, that's all for me," When his name came over the speaker; "I'd like to stay a little longer But my patient is my seeker." As off to the clinic floor he heads, "Come back," shout the losing pair. But he pays no heed to all their calls Of one game to make it square. In the early days of years ago He would have been a sinner. But since he's soon to graduate, All he missed—was dinner.• w M oilier filoo.se Little boy Subin Come plug our canal, We can't do it So you show us how. Humpty Dumpty flare your wall. Humpty Dumpty get on the ball Or all the instructors including Hess Will help you make a terrible mess. A Dillar, a Dollar, a ten o'clock Scholar Biondo came too soon. The whole class gasped to see such a sight. For he usually comes at noon. Georgie Sandman pumpkin pie— Miss Philadelphia caught his eye, The bridge was finished one sunny day. Then the beauty ran away. (Damn it) Four and twenty students. Waiting on the floor, Doyle at the window, The rest were out the door. Gibby 'hind the counter, Counting out the gold. Calely in the casting room, Casting inlays cold. Sing a song of gold points, Class three s full of foil, Along came Dr. Walter, And made of naught my toil. Walter, Walter, I've been thinking, What a fine world this would be If all gold foil was transported, Far away from you and me. ' Reds" hod a little stand, Its name was "Ptomaine Junction." And every time you ate your meal Your bowels began to function. Hi diddle diddle, the kids in the middle Down in the Pedo room. Sullivan laughed and Wian danced As Casto sealed his doom. Peter, Peter, do not kick Even though your gold won’t stick, Use M. H. and you will see. You can plug class two's and three. A senior in rage, went to the cage To get his poor patient some gold. But when he got there, the cage, it was bore— Gibby was out with a cold. The clinic had a little lamb. His soul was white as snow. And everything that Bucky said Dr. Craig would want to know.To Plug, or Xot to Plug To plug or not to plug: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The blows and pounding of outrageous plugging, Or to mix an alloy and end your troubles, And by mixing end them. To plug: to pound: No more: and by amalgam fillings say we end The toothache, and the thousand natural shocks The tooth is heir to. 'Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish’d. To mix. to triturate: To insert? Perchance recurrent decay! aye, there's the rub: For in that amalgam of depth what edges are exposed. When we have polished off this silver gem, We must give pause: there's the respect That makes a silver filling last: For what could bear the whips and scorns of chewing, Of traumatic occlusion, or crocking nuts, The insolence of bacteria, that oil the teeth must take. When eating mashed potatoes— Amalgam—foil, what difference does it make?DILEMMA I used to speak in accents clear. And diction I knew well; They said I come from Harvard. My speech was rather swell. But now I'm gray, my muscles balk, And furthermore—I cannot talk! My diction? No! It isn’t weak. Just when I talk, my dentures squeak. If I am speaking to my friends. Or smile a bit too broadly. The uppers drop— The lowers rise. My comrades look with marked surprise. When seated in my favorite cluo I eat my dinner slow. (My teeth are really not my own, I don't want friends to know.) ‘Twos when they cheered, and called on me To give the banquet speech, I rose and slyly wiped my face, (I really pushed them into place.) I prayed—but God had failed to hear, And as I tried to speak. The uppers with a thunder dropped And clattered 'cross the table top. The lowers with their partners fell, My facial muscles sagged like. Oh. well! My friends no longer look to me For after dinner speeches, 'cause My teeth, they simply cannot move In conjunction with my jaws. And furthermore. I'd like to say I don't know what's the matter; For in the summer's boiling heat, My teeth begin to chatter. Alas, the years have passed. I've'finally found the trouble: Where the uppers should have been, The lowers I had borne; And on the lower ridge, The uppers I had worn.First Epistle to the Juniors Lo. oil ye miserable Juniors, entering through the gate of the Clinic and into the land of the Rubber Dam, harken unto my words, for I have dwelt in this land for many months and mine eyes have witnessed all manner of folly ond woe. Verily have I fasted the bitter fruit of Demerits and drained the dregs of the Compound Pot. Gird up thy loins, O my son. ond take up the handpiece, but act slowly and with exceeding care, and harken first to the counsel of a wiser and sadder man than thou.- Beware thou the Doctor who is called Instructor; he hath a pleased and smiling look, but he concealeth a serpent in his heart. Avoid him wh'en he speaketh low and his lips smileth: he smileth not for thee; his heart rejoiceth at the sight of thy youth ond thine ignorance. But when he moveth with great haste and sweat standeth upon his brow, make thyself scarce; for he will fall like the whirlwind upon the idle, and the Goldbrick shall realize his demerits. He will smile and work all manner of evil against thee. A wise man shuns Red's stand, but the fool shall dwell in the Clinic forever. Unto all things there is a time: there is a time to speak and a time to be silent. Be thou like unto stone in the presence of thy instructors; and keep thy tongue still when they shall question thee of previous separation. The wise man seeketh out buccal pits, but only the fool treats Vincent's. Look thou with disfavor upon the newly made instructor. He priZeth much his gown and is proud and foolish. He laugheth and joketh much with the older instructors and looketh upon the student with deep disfavor. The sound of his punch maketh pleasing music to his ears, and he forgetteth when he was but a student as thou. Knoweth that the keeper of the Amalgam is a woman of many moods: when she looketh pleased and her words are as honey, the wise Junior seeketh her out, praiseth her appearance, and laugheth much at her jests. The keeper of the pink cards is a languid woman; but she is the keeper of many good things; if thou wouldst not wait in line and wouldst have a chair, then verily I say unto you. "Make her thy friend." Hell hath no fury like an instructor scorned. He walketh with a swagger and regardeth the student with a raised eyebrow; he looketh upon his degree with exceeding pleasure and loveih the salutation: "Doctor." Call ye him not "Doc" for it maketh his blood to boil; yea, he becometh as a demon and fire ond smoke poureth from his nostrils. Damned be he who finisheth first in technique and increaseth the requirements and cincheth the grades. He is thrice cursed ond all people, even unto the Freshmen, will revile at him and spit upon him; for his name is "Scooter," and he is an abomination. Know thou the Big Operator, but trust him not; he worketh always upon a deal and he speaketh confidentially. He knoweth many women ond goeth into town every night; he borroweth all thy money: yea. even unto thy rent check. He promiseth to fix you up, but doth it not. Beware thou the old man. He will make thee sweat. When he approacheth be thou on the ball; for he loveth to chew upon thy posterior. Keep thou out of his sight and let him not know thy name; for the name of him who arouseth the Old Man shall be sent to him who is called Dean. w GUESS WHO? GUESS WHO?

For no other field DEMANDS higher specialization than Acrylic and porcelain jackets, inlays, and bridges. Anyone can make a plastic jacket ... or even a porcelain crown . . . but it takes years of experience to shade one properly and to carve one that is anatomically correct.

Penn Square PHILADELPHIA LOCust 1980 ESTABLISHED OVER 24 YEARS 177Where Better PRECISION ATTACHMENTS The use of Precision Attachments is indicated in this case because they eliminate need of a cumbersome continuous clasp across on-teriors from cuspid to 1st bicuspid, which would be required in a clasp case in addition to clasps on tho cuspid, 1st bicuspid and 2nd molar. Therefore, attachments are more comfortable to the patient and more esthetic, avoiding the display of gold inevitable in clasps on cuspid and 1st bicuspid. Practice Indicates ONE axiom has come out of the debate over the relative merits of clasp and attachment restorations—that neither type is a universal "best." When Attachments Are Indicated, Specify The important advantages of attachments are: BROWN PROXIMAL CONTACT I—Life of the abutment tooth is greotly prolonged because, since the attachment is within the contour of the tooth, the stress applied is in line with its long axis; and also because possible erosion under a clasp is eliminated. ATTACHMENTS Built - in Proximal Contact. Also made in Plain Shank Type. Ten standardised interchangeable sizes. Strong—made in one piece, no seams or solder. Closed bottom in mole section of the restoration offords easy insertion ond removol (or the patient. Simple to adjust. Use any sharp instrument. Springy, positive re-tention Ttveive Design Charts of Attachment Cases with Descriptive and Technical Literature on request. 2— Esthetics is enhanced by eliminating a show of clasps, particularly on anterior teeth. 3— Attachments ossure much more comfort to po-tient because of greater stability in a precision attachment and because all material on surfaces of teeth is eliminated. The case illustrated is one in which "doctors agree” better practice indicates attachments for the reasons given. Generally speaking attachments should be used: —when the numbor ond location of clasps required will form a too cumbersome or unesthetic appliance. —when an abutment tooth lacks normal stability; a precision attachment will by itself immobilize the tooth without the addition of the indirect retainers necessary in clasp work. —whon the abutment teeth already accommodate the required inlays or crowns. [As makers of attachments, ue are as anxious to discourage their “I use where contra-indicated as to encourage it where indicated.
