Qonwell President Conwcll was pre-eminently a dreamer of dreams and a seer of vision, but he had the rare power of bringing his dreams to pass and of having his visions become realities. He was a man of infinite patience. To use his own frequent quotation, "he could afford to wait,” but he worked while he waited. His motto chosen for the university from the very beginning was, “Perseverantia Vincit.” He believed that the good in all men was greater than the evil. He could always see the good and overlook the evil. Frequently he quoted from Milton. "The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” When storms raged around him he could live serenely within himself. lie was seldom known to hurry or to worry unduly. He did not favor very strongly reform movements from without, but felt they must always come from within whether it be in politics, religion or in one’s individual life. He taught men and women to make the best of their present surroundings first; that Acres of Diamonds lay at their own door. In his own life he insisted upon doing one thing at a time and upon doing that thing well. No matter how many other things were waiting for his doing they had to take their turn without any evidence of hurry. He was a close observer of men and things with a photographic memory. He never forgot a face. He remembered every detail of a scene he had once seen in his journeys, up and down the earth. A page of a l ook once carefully read was his forever. 1 ly middle life he had a great storehouse so filled and so ordered that he could draw from it for facts and materials that made it possible for him to speak forcibly and well upon almost any theme with little and often no previous preparation. He loved the New England hills where he was bom with a rare devotion, but when he came to Philadelphia to live he made it his own city and never had it a more loyal citizen. 1 le loved it and felt an undying gratitude toward it. He came to it with love in his heart for it. It had been kind to him as a young soldier. He had been wounded in one of the battles of the Civil War and had been brought to one of its great war hospitals where he had been tenderly ministered to by a Sister of Charity. I Ic never forgot. When he came back to it many years later he came with that kindly memory as a help to the understanding of the true Philadelphia that lies beneath its colder exterior. He did not have to wait long until he was received as one of its manners bom. No single citizen of Philadelphia has tried to do more for it than he. No one has perhaps been more universally acclaimed: none in his going, more universally mourned. A great leader has been taken from our midst, but the inspiration of his spirit remains with us to inspire us still to lives of usefulness and service. Lu ka H. Carxell, Associate President. 3 59431FRANK C HAMMOND. M.D.. F.A.C.S.uljr (Elaoo of 192fi drdiratra this Honk tn nur Dran Sr. Shrank (E. Hammond uiitfi rruprrt, low anil admiration.I DR. CHARLES E. HE UK VQthtf § kuU greetings From President cBeury y As the new President of Temple University, I am happy to send my greetings to the graduating class of the Medical school. Although the medical school has not had the showy buildings and elaborate equipment which might be desired, it was possible to offset this by the splendid record which its graduates have made in the pursuit of their profession. After all. the world’s great work is not done bv men who live in marble palaces but by those who have had to struggle from modest beginnings and to carry forward and upward to positions of usefulness and prominence. Our new program for Temple University is an ambitious one. Within the next few years, if plans are realized, we shall have adequate facilities for all departments. One of our weaknesses has beep the ignorance of the public concerning the university—its size and scholastic standards. This should lie changed quite rapidly by the sustained publicity campaign which is now being inaugurated. An institution that is as unique, as essentially helpful and as large as Temple University deserves to be known the country over. 1 A ' j t J N V' . I So as you young men go out to your life positions of ministration, you may take with you the assurance that it is only a matter of a comparatively short time until the prestige of your university will aid you in your work and make your service more helpful to mankind. Hut this thought keep ever in mind— for it is especially true to those of the medical profession—the criterion of a man’s success is not so much the money he earns, as the out-reach of his usefulness to the community in which he lives. It would be a pity if 'Temple University should train men for financial success without making them more helpful to society and the nation. r V vy Charles E. Beury. 7DAVID GREGG MKTHENY.

(Glasgow) Professor of Anatomy and Histology We deeply realize that to us has been vouchsafed the privilege and the honor of association and instruction from the Spirit of a Man. The sad and silent Hand of Death has deprived us of the Friendship of one to whom friendship was the highest attribute of men. His life was one of adventure, a romance with which some novelist might stir the world and yet he attained the highest rank and recognition within his chosen profession. I ie brought the training of great universities. knowledge gleaned from the far-flung corners of the earth, the broad experiences of a lifetime, and laid them in willing sacrifice at our feet. In what seems now to have been fateful and significant terms, he often expressed his hope and faith that his own contribution to life would be manifested through us. As we passed from beneath his care, the fibrils of his heartstrings folded like the lilies of the field, but the fragrance of their fruitage gave fresh emanations at our slightest touch. David Gregg Methenv had but one heart to give to a class and he gave it to us unselfishly and nobly. He is not dead, but has simply changed his form to lx our Guardian Spirit in the few short years to come and we may rest assured he will never call a roll. Leaves have their time to fall. And flowers wither at the northwind's breath. And stars to set. but all. Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death. We know when moons shall wane. When summer birds from far shall cross the sea. When autumn’s hue shall tinge the golden grain. But who shall teach us when to look for thee?—Hamms. M. S., ’25. 9SAMARITAN' HOSPITAL The iMedical Department of Temple University The Medical Department of the Temple University, like all the other departments of this institution, was not opened until a demand was made by a representative number of ambitious young men and women for an evening course. Prcsiden Conwell had frequently been appealed to by students of other departments for a course, so arranged, that they could earn a living and college expenses and at the same time pursue a course in medicine. In the spring of 1901 the Board of Trustees decided to open an evening medical school. A faculty and department was organized, and a circular arranged, announcing that a course consisting of five years' evening instruction would lie given by Temple College. The first faculty consisted of twenty professors, lecturers, demonstrators and instructors. The curriculum was so arranged that the same number of hours would be devoted to it as in the day schools. There were alxiut thirty students matriculated for the college session of 1901 2. It was found that the students who applied for evening instruction in medicine, were willing to make any personal sacrifice to acquire a medical education. They, therefore, applied themselves most diligently to the work. The evening school was discontinued on account of legislation in the various States by which graduates of an evening school were prevented from appearing before the respective State boards for licensure. Tile high standard attained by the graduates of this department before the various State boards of medical examiners has been preeminently satisfactory, a fact of which the institution is justly prowl. t AT s V t The Samaritan Hospital was opened to the students and clinical teaching is conducted in the amphitheatre, dispensaries and wards of this growing institution. The Faculty was gradually awl carefully increased and conditions improved as the classes grew, in the year 1907, the Temple College was granted the title of Temple University by the courts of Philadelphia. This made the Medical Department, in name as in fact, the department of a great University. Shortly after the granting of the name. Temple University, there was an affiliation of the Temple University with the Philadelphia Dental College, and the Garretson Hospital and the Medical School was, in 1907, transferred to the Philadelphia Dental College buildings, Eighteenth and Buttonwood Streets. This at once gave the school commodious quarters. The Medical Deaprtment of the Temple University, in 1901, had thirty-one matriculates: for the year 1925-1926, it enrolled 223 students. In the year 1907 the School established a four years' day course of eight and a half months each. During the past two years new laboratories, have l»ccn constructed awl equipped in Histo)6gy and Embryology. Physiology, Bacteriology and Pathology, Physiological Chemistry awl the Anatomical Rooms. The Museum has been altered to make it serve the practical pun of daily teaching, and not a room to house a "collection of material.'’ The l.ibrary, in charge oi a full time Librarian, is continually adding new books awl periodicals. The present Faculty consists of four Emeritus Professor , twenty Professors, four Clinical Professors, sixteen Associate Professors, eighteen Associates, nineteen Lecturers, ten Demonstrators, twenty Instructors and twenty-four Clinical Assistants. The Temple University has three hospitals which are used for clinical instructing. The greater portion of the teaching is done at the Samaritan Hospital; the C.reatheart Hospital is devoted to maternity cases, and the Garret son Hospital also is used for clinical teaching. In addiioiv the student body is assigned for instruction to the Philadelphia General Hospital, the Philadelphia Hospital for Contagious Diseases and the Eaglcvillc Sanitarium with its dispensary service at the Phipps Institute. A new wing to the Samaritan Hospital has liecn completed and alterations made to the old wing, so that the. new Samaritan Hospital has three hundred bedsr it has two lecture rooms, a mortuary with a seating capacity of thirty; numerous model for teaching purposes, a clinical amphitheatre, and a library In charge of a full time librarian. President Bcury has announced the launching of a Twenty Million Dollar Campaign for the University, to l e known as the Russell U. Conwell Foundation for Temple University. This foundation will consecrate itself to raising the fund over a period of fifteen years.. Of this amount, two million dollars will l c used for the, erection of buildings for housing the School of Medicine, awl two million dollars will lie set aside to constitute an endowment fund for the medical school.

Doctor Conwell noted this eltange and realized that it the Hospital was to'conlinue in its development, it would have to Ik transferred to another location. This he intended to do, hut upon making a survey- of the neighlx rhood and of the needs of the Medical Department, he arrived at the conclusion that a large; well-equip|K d maternity ihospital was more nctlded in the community and hy the college than another gen Aral hospital. To accoinp- ,'j lists this purpose, he organized the Greatheart Society and ha l it incorporated under the laws of the State of Pennsylvania. It was decided to purchase the properties located at 1810 and 1812 Spring Garden Street for the new undertaking. After extensivcSjlterations, the Great-heart Maternity Hospital of j Temple University was dedi-. catetl hy Doctor Conwell on April 27. 1923. .. . . i .V:_.. .. jc... her l»hy examined to see if it is developing as a normal child should. Nurses are also I assigned front this dispensary to visit and care for patients in their homes. The Staff is made up of men of great experience in the obstetrical field, the Hospital being under the care of Doctors Applegates. Barnes and Arnold. They give much of their time to this work for which they receive no compensation whatsoever. The Greatheart Maternity Hospital has lnren an iimportant factor in the development k the Obstetrical Department of Temple University School of Medicine. Two senior students live in the Hospital and deliver all normal cases under the di« ful purpose in giving these young men that practical ex-perience which will l e so valuable to them during all their professional lives.. The Hospital iy fccognizcd KvN- fi i4meriMa Surgeons, It consisted of thirty bed?, ot which five which means that the Hospital measures up are in private rooms andythc rest in semi-private and public wards. By this arrangement the institution is enabled to care for those who arc without funds as well as those patients who can afford to pav the • V 717 ) V v Hospital for its services. At one o’clock each day a tree dispensary hour is maintained. Here the patients are registered for admission to the Hospital « r to have a senior medical student assigned to their case to care for them in their homes. Prenatal care is given to the expectant mother. She is also urged to return for a post-natal examination and to have in every way to the Standards of that organization. Many of the nurses from the Samaritan Hospital are assigned to the Greatheart Maternity Hospital to obtain their experience in Obstetrical nursing. It is ojK'ii to the people of all races and all Creeds: its prmcipaj 'purposc is to he of service to those of Jittk or no means. With these ideals and the great need for the Hospital, we feel sure that the Hospital will continue to have a very healthy growth and it will develop into one of the largest and l cst maternity hospitals in this country. y 21 DR.

PARKINSON2Eh t William Parkinson, M.D., M.Sc. (£Med.) • . _ The first to receive the Alumni prize of the T. U. Medical School, as a tribute to the alumnus who has done most for the prestige and advancement of our School of Medicine—thus in a sentence is summed up the regard of his fellow alumni. This spirit of admiration and appreciation was shared also by all the students who came in contact with him either as friend or advisor in personal difficulties or as a teacher. The Senior Class feels it a special privilege to have started its medical training in Doctor Parkinson's first year as Associate Dean and Associate in Surgery and will carry with it always the memory of that pleasant association. Graduated from Temple in 1912 with second honors, he interned and practiced in the vicinity of Philadelphia until he answered his country’s call to the great war, serving with the 28th Division. His experiences in charge of an operating team on the front lines would make interesting reading, but Doctor Parkinson’s modesty in regard to his own exploits denies us this chapter of his life. Discharged after the armistice, having reached the rank of major, he continued post-graduate studies at Harvard and New York Post-Graduate Schools. Meanwhile he was appointed Chief Surgeon. Montgomery County Hospital, and conducted a private practice in Conshohocken. He was also associate to Doctor Kennedy at the Joseph Price Hospital. Philadelphia. With all his other duties, Doctor Parkinson managed to obtain his Master of Science degree in Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Post-Graduate School. In 1922 he assumed his duties as Associate Dean of the Medical School. Here he applied himself unsparingly to the welfare and advancement of Temple. '' 's ■ --1 ■ . , Constant friend of the students, many of whom owe their medical education directly to Doctor Parkinson, the announcement of his resignation last June was received with genuine regret. After six months' post-graduate study in Europe, he returned and has recently established a surgical practice in St. Augustine, Florida. The Class of '26. in leaving the Medical Halls, acknowledges his untiring service for the school and extends its most sincere wishes for continued success in his chosen field. H. K.

STRICKLER 3:15 Dr. Strickler and his semi-minyan at his heels . . . 3:16 a student comes in and receives a withering look . . . Forceful, confident, excellent lecturing: lucid crystal-clear clinical pictures of skin diseases painted bv a man obviously a master of his subject . . . We are impressed with the fact that “in order to be a good Dermatologist one has to be a good physician first” ... we are told what a formidable competitor the mercury quartz light in one’s office is to the Atlantic City sunlight . . . Someone once said that Dr. Strickler could teach the Junior Obstetrical course in two hours. DR. PETER An authority on the eye with very little “I" trouble . . . the “window” of the soul is opened . . . Emphasis on what the general man should and shouldn't treat . . . The value of tuberculin and the remarkable precision of ophthalmologic work made possible by the conical microscope and slit ray lamp. DR. MILLS The Pediatric Ward (8 cases) wheeled in . . . Still clearing up cases demonstrated previously . . . One kiddie cries—“The question is.” says Dr. Mills. “Who's holding this clinic?” . . . Another treatment for chorea is given us . . . An impressive discourse that makes the hour fly. DR. BABCOCK Spinal! Spinal! Spinal! . Adieu gall bladder . . . Ta ta appendix . . . Vive la gastroenterostomy ... 20 men in the pit . . . Breathless watching of the journey of a sponge finally, tremulously, reaching its destination . . . Someone humming “Yes Sir! She’s My Babv!” as a tumor is deftly excised . . . We don’t all have j eriscopes to see the operations but there’s plenty to learn by just listening to one of the country’s eminent surgeons. DR. CODORI Class subscriptions to Life, Judge, La I 'ie Parisiennc and Zip's have considerably and progressively fallen off this year . . . Shades of Chesner! How can one remember them all ? . . . Hughes attends diligently to replenish his well-worn stock . . . As we pass out we are called back by a "Wait a minute—this reminds me of another one.” DR. HAMMOND man of fine presence, exuding confidence, with reason for popularity apparently at a glance . . . Vigorous if continuous speech with regularly timed staccato emphasis of important jxn'nts . . . Illustrative anecdotes kindly humor, gentle innuendos sprinkled over his vibrant, vascular lecture. 40 DR. HIBSHMAX A highly polished gentleman emitting ultra rapid oratory . . . “now, hoys, hold that line! that anorectal line, in mind! It is the seat of all infections” . . . Demonstration of a case with a hairpin in rectum—“the question is, did she sit on it or swallow it?” . . . Memories of sizzling half cauterized hemorrhoids and infected crypts. DR. THOMAS The operation is the best. It makes the organ look dressy . . . Flashes of wit . . . sparks of humor which irradiate the faces of the students . . . Kidding Dr. Fretz saying he's exj ert with cystoscope and admits it . . . Remarks on fertilization: many are called hut few are chosen . . . Reminds us that not all Democrats flunked last year . . . Tells us to take a Sunday off and massage each other’s prostates—it will be time well spent . . . Sees Herman at the door and invites him down . . . Tells us not to assume that all patients he hasn't shown us Subsequent to oi era-tion have died . . . And finishes with this peroration: “This sinus will close ere some of you will graduate, l ast year was a clean slate—can’t have it this year. At least three are going to fail. I'm going to recommend five but expect to be overruled on two—I don’t care which three, nothing personal understand, but must get three.” DR. OLIEKSIS Pinning students down to unequivocal answers . . . No endocarditis without myocarditis . . “This man’s entitled to his cough” . . . W hen asked a question we retlexly answer Visceroptosis . . . We never worked off our admiration for his lightning percussion . . . Always warns us that the subject under discussion would make a good examination question. DR. ASTLEY An hour where clear reasoning is demanded and no nebulous diagnoses permitted : altogether a valuable period . . . A man. too. who makes use of the plasticity of the English language—it's good to hear some real King’s English once in a while . . . Regins with "now to recapitulate and to epitomize” . . . Someone reports on an assignment (long live Pryor’s Sendee) . . . 'fells a student "now remember! what is it you want to do ? Are you doing it ? Is it worth doing?" . . . Seems to remember all the cases he had as an interne. DR. APPLEGATE Criminal abortions. Caesarian Sections and Roggy Uteri in general occupy the center of the stage . . . Dr. A. asks Ciesielski how he pronounces his name. C. tells him. "All right, tell me again next week” . . . The thing to do in this condition is to drain, isn't it? You know the symptoms of Placenta Praevia. do you not? In that case the pulse would be rapid, would it not? . . .Much of our attention is on Dr. Barnes’ sponging technique ... Dr. Applegate advises us not to tamponade with a felt ffo DR. ORXSTEEX It would be a shock to see Dr. Orn-steen entering without fondly hugging his camera ... It would be equally surprising to hear anything but a quiet and illuminative talk on Neurology . . . Weycan honestly say that his movies were the only ones we ever witnessed without even thinking of falling asleep. DR. SNYDERMAX This quiz hour is conducted by a ruddy faced, chubby, well-dressed man . . . Everyone’s “here” rever- berates in the room when Zaborowski’s name is called . . . Dr. S. proves that it is not necessary to look like a 41©h? Skull bull in a china shop to hold a quiz with benefit . . . We are particu- larly charmed with the undulations of Dr. Snyderman’s voice . . . We all learn that avoid to the wise is sufficient . . . One of the popular men on the staff. DR.

BOEHRIXGER Interested in the students . . . Also a proud father as this one indicates: "My son told the barber he wanted a haircut like mine with a hole in the middle” . . . We’d like to see anyone trip us on an eyewash prescription. DR. GIXSP.ERG. Faint memories of the High Collar Era . . . 5.10. Our roll call just ended when applause is heard from the Junior Cubicle . . . Our knowledge of Chemistry made practical It is not our habit to dip teachers into phraseological honey, but the saccha-rinitv of the lectures on dialietes and the usual mellifluence with which they were delivered were extraordinary. DR. SELTZER Dr. Seltzer asks very many ques- 1 a tions in medicine and answers them. too, very well indeed . . . His diagrams on the Ixiard which he thought hcj ed us understand his ]X)ints made us feel the world lost a Raphael when he chose medicine. DR. SAYITZ Emphasis on Prophylaxis : . . P.oils Pharmcopocia down to half a dozen drugs . . . Emphasis on Prophylaxis . . . Expands the Pharmacopeia again to its original volume . . . Embhasi On Prophylaxis . . .

Here! The above represents the average effort of the Roll Call brigade to pronounce the name of our lead-off man. He possesses a patented formula for charming the now and then fair sex. and while we were at Broad and Berks there wasn’t one of them who didn’t have a rise in blood pressure when within a block of him. A likeable “Leljejung.” the hoys were always glad to welcome him back from his homeland. He is probably the meanest buck and winger in the class. JOSEPH C. ASZUKAS Joe has the faculty of smiling ubiquitously and contagiously, but fortunately he is serious at the right moment—a combination which augurs well for his success. Outside of the fact that he lives in Wilkes-Barre and that he once wrote a prescription in which he directed the patient to take the potion in water, not specifying whether it were to be in the tub or in toe creek, he did not commit any other serious faux pas. HARRY BAIL Harrv was such a quiet chap! In fact, he was so taciturn and unobtrusive that we didn’t get a chance to learn very much about him. Indeed, it took us two years to find out that lie was a married man and a father of several children, although how many we still do not know. In the little spare time that 1 larry had he managed to mingle in politics, all of which did not prevent Harry from studying diligently and realizing his ambition—a degree in medicine. SIMON BALL Si was our class Adonis, standing almost six feet tall and overtopped by a shock of glistening blond hair. He well deserved the title of “Mr. Temple Med. 1926.” His physique was not merely ornamental, for Si was a first-class athlete, playing basketball in the fastest amateur league in the city and proving to be the mainstay of his team. In addition, he was a cracker-jack student and one of the most popular men in the class. DOM IXICK BATTAGI .1X1 Bat was the boy with that far-away look. He was oft present in body, but rarely in spirit. It might have been a dark-eyed Italian senorita, but from the little clues we picked up here and there we’re rather inclined to believe that it was a Xew York flapper. If what they say about still waters is true. Bat must be some sheik! Vie had heard that Bat had a rather good voice, but you couldn't prove it by his classmates, for Bat always stopped, looked and listened, but rarelv spoke. BYRON B. BOBB, B. S. A former scIkxjI teacher which, perhaps, accounts for many things. Ye know very little about him and were surprised to learn he’s contemplating to round out his education with a course in Law. The Angels and their Chariots help him! Loves the simple life and is especially distressed at the rapidity with which the auto is replacing the invaluable horse. CHARLES CAIX Cain is quite a bland type, but we advise no one to take unfair advantage, for he has muscles like whipcords. These he developed in the big empty spaces of Leechinirg. where men are men and size fourteen necks float in size seventeen collars. Whether it be a compliment or not. we don’t know of any faults we can attribute to him had we the desire to do so. JOSEPH J. CALLAGHAX Callaghan’s rosy cheeks have kept him dated up for the four years we know him. It was rumored that his roommate had designs on him until he found out Silent Cal couldn’t cook. It is also whispered about that Cal occasionally thinks pajamas were made for street wear, or better, roof wear. Once he developed an attack of seeming pernicious anemia, but Genks promptly cured him bv discovering the focus of infection and promptly throwing it out of the window. 70HARRY CANTOR Debonair and unassuming, Harry meanders in our midst as a likeable, willing, helpful fellow—a pride to the philosophy of Eddie Guest. Dermatology is his favorite subject. We hated to disillusion him. but he really hasn’t the build. Although he’s a man after the Editor’s heart (i. c., his schedule frequently begins at 10 or 11 A. 1.), the chances are that we will shoot him if he demonstrates that handkerchief trick to us once more. We have no doubt that he will continue to get along. PETER CAST ELLA N1 Pete was one of those spunky devils with nerve enough to rush in to the state of hymeneal blessedness while still an undergrad. After class he was frequently Seen in a chummy confab with the patient profs, probably discussing some esoteric, obtuse medical problems above the ken of the rest of us. WALTER CIESIELSKI Ciesielski was the quintessential he-man. the “Enfant Terrible” of the class. We all know what was meant by that immortal poet who sang: Man’s a vapor, Full of woes; Starts a paper, L’p she goes. Disrobed he is a replica of Bernarr McFadden. No one (except Maxie Mann, of course) ever had the temerity to essay his strength against Cie-sielski’s. His name is as formidable as his physique and the standing prize of a y z by 4 z pie to that man who pronounced his name correctly after ijeing told only nine times was never claimed. LEO DELOHERY Leo’s rather opulent mould (all schmaltz) makes us feel that he could play both the chins in Chin-Chin (with a spare in the rear). Leo is usually lavishly upholstered. His smiling face is a welcome antidote to the Imperial Blues. He hails from the nutmeg state, but sure was surprised to learn that nutmegs had a physiological action other than flavoring puddings. He is one of the four horsemen and is quite keen on boxing. LOUIS FI NX EL Lou was a good student, a hard worker, a willing friend and a modest fellow. Those of us who knew I-ou could well appreciate his sterling qualities and his worth. On several occasions Lou brought down upon himself the ire of our Prof. Morgan by his indiscriminate use of the word “your.” "Mercury irritates your stomach and vour intestine and”—"not mine, doctor," Spicy interjected—"and with large doses your kidney is also affected,” continued Lou unheeding. Except for this eccentricity in speech. Lou always answered up deliberately and logically. He would rather forego the pleasure of smelling a thousand roses for fear he might be pricked by a single thorn. IS ADO R FORMAN "Dizzy" stands out prominently as one of our cerebrating men. Besides ratiocinating carefully, he acts at once as chief counsellor and tormentor of Sodium Bicarb, alias Schwartzman; is a connoisseur of ice creams and clothing material; boasts of a fine tennis record, especially since trimming Scarf, and has an enviable and interesting list of visitable girls. "Keefe’s" pet subject is neurology—"being built that way," he claims. MORRIS FRANKLIN We nominate for the hall of fame Morris Franklin, because he added substance to the class: because of his intermittent and egregious supralabial plumage and banana-shaped proboscis: because ideas flock to him like leucocytes to a boil: because of his ingenious treatment of a lipoma: dissolving it with ether and drawing off 71the solution: because he's intelligent enough to think most people stupid: because of a natural indolence of which he is admittedly proud: because by the frequency he’s asked for loans von might think he were an eleemosynary institution; hut chiefly because he loves Honor more than honors. MORRIS GENKIN The door is opened, the air is rent by the raucous cry of whrrr—a phantom of long legs, outstretched arms and squirming body describes a beautiful arc through space and alights on Arraras’ shoulders. The dance is on! Genks is at it again. Oblivious of everything al out him he saunters along in a most nonchalant manner. (Genks never walks in a straight line while conscious.) I’eing untamed he does just what he pleases, working on the theory that you can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs. He has developed the art of expectorating at an apparently coveted target with the ability to just about miss it to the status of a fine art. Sometimes we think he’d do remarkably well on bromides. He is certainly not cast in the common mold. He has candor, high spirits, courage and a lively perception of the ridiculous, lie hates routine and has never been weaned away from his inborn independence. Even at his worst he is interesting—never dull for a moment. There’s something electrical. volatile, about him. Like radium his personality gives out energy without the latter diminishing. A regular fellow, a wow of an athlete, a fine student, a roommate of Cal, Leo and Tommy, President of the class, a drain on Pelosi’s pocket book every time they play pool, an adept in the handshakes of all the fraternities— all these things (besides spelling his name with a G) help make him the most distinctive personality of the class. CHARLES GETTES We recommend Charlie for your csi ccial attention, because he was a good student, an earnest worker for his societies and fraternity, an active member of the class organization and a decided help on the Skull, but especially and above all because of his singular success with the women. 1 le always had a string of them and always managed to pay them all the attention they craved. How he did it, W atson, has always been a mystery to us; but if results count he certainly had the right "dope!” Our hat is off to him! THOMAS l . GETTY The Class Theorist. Always on the front row. Never tardy or absent, l akes notes verbatim. W orked in a hospital last summer and he sees to it that we don’t forget it. His strong subject was Ilrain Anatomy. His hobby is supplying his classmates with "Lucky Strikes.” CLARENCE E. GOODE That Goode is a protagonist of hygiene we judge by the fact that his favorite seat is by the window where he can cast his wistful gaze on our picturesque campus and inhale deeply of its delicate fragrance. Goode behaves himself so exasperatinglv well that it is impossible to bespatter him with the proverbial editorial mud. The only things that can possibly mar his record are the facts that he adorns his proboscis with a veritable pince-nez and that once lived with Hauser. His reasons for hanging around the Great-heart lately are Little, but that Little seems enough. FRANK HAUSER Hauser is our Arrow Collar man and of late has gone in for the Collegiate in Wearing Apparel. Genial (tho married), well liked (even by his kid) and never too tired to listen to a good joke (even Holland’s) he saunters through life unhurried and unruffled. Neither his likes nor dislikes are ever intense. His monomania consists in his preoccupation with plans he is developing on how to run "his” medical school. 72LOUIS HERMAN With the addition of this specimen of Homo Sapiens to our gang’ we gained a master of the latest Terpsi-chorean wrinkles. Whenever he got into a mellow mood he’d let us coax him into breaking out with some of his hot stuff at the same time keeping rhythm with Wrigley’s. We envy him his confidence. HAROLD K. HOGG Harold has been particularly lucky, practically having a four-year interne-ship while going to school. He was thus gathering a lot of valuable experience which should put him ahead of most of us. He has a pair of the best trained dogs in the land and would have been a success on the stage had he tried it. EDWARD J. HOLLAND Ed. Holland, one of Dr. Morgan’s up-state Irish and President of the Applegate Society, isn’t the same since he moved from the slums of 18th and Buttonwood Streets. We remember a funny incident in which she cut her hand on the ictrola but we’re not telling it today. Sh! We hear Ed has a girl—we remember him when he had several. During the Senior Year, Holland attended lectures between transfusions. DANIEL HUGHES “Other things besides flowers can make a nosegay.” In order to appreciate Hughes we should have had his portrait painted, although only a Whistler could do him credit. He sports a passionate nose varying from cherry-red to ultraviolet in color and nothing short of a tourniquet around the neck could possible blanch it. Besides an opulent native and rib-busting wit he possesses a limitless assortment of stage nifties and these he flavors with his inimitable manner of telling them. He surely has a nose for humor. Someone said he must be twins, for he’s altogether too funny to be one guy. Eor Old Friedrich’s “Will to Power” lie substitutes the “Will to Humor.” There are many angles to this physish: his method of taking notes, embalming them and to all appearances referring to them about as often as a guinea pig reads the reports of the Pharmaceutical council; his relations with Dr. Morgan; the multiplicity of his money making schemes, etc. He is one man the class will never forget, for it has been brightened too much by him. DAVIS THEODORE HUNT Dave is a charming, unobtrusive fellow and our consultant obstetrician. While the other men are worrying when and where they will work their cases off. Dave idly wonders which twelve cases out of the ninety-eight he’s had he will report. Along with Hogg he is suffering from the Parkinsonian syndrome. EDWARD KELLEY Our fracture expert. An orator of no mean merit. A model of sartorial investiture. A philanthropist, oft playing the role of Santa Claus for the boys. Predicted the outcome of the World Series, but then all men have their weaknesses and his is Pittsburgh. Came to us in our third year and was immediately embraced as a damgood-fellow. LOUIS KOWALSKI With his well-known Havana in his mouth, Kowalski is a rather complacent and docile descendant of his illustrious ancestor John Sobieski. but since he brooks interference from no one, there is quite a transformation when some unfortunate manifests too muct interest in his activities. When let alone one can never tell whether he is pleased or displeased. When questioned directly there is never any doubt whether he is for or against you.

IUsury Hall, according to the latest reports of two of our best spies, is still reverberating with the cachinnations and the tintinnabulations of this cheerful cherub. JOHN J. MALINOWSKI The Class Paderewski. An easily inflammable person but quickly gets over it (probably his hormones). He is a “highly polished" gentleman (reminds one of llibsnman), being absent the day they handed out the hair seed, but with much effort has managed to prevent the loss of the edges. MA.VM ANN Max was small but conspicuous.

Max was a likable chap and we particularly enjoyed the manner in which he approached a colleague, grabbing hold of his lapels and staring into his face with eyes so widely opened they looked like carbuncles ready to burst and—then he would start. We recommend and prophesy for him a position on Dr. S trickier's stall. HENRY G. MARKARIAN Whenever one hears the expression “average man." “regular guy." "one of the common people" one doesn't exactly know who is meant—unless one is acquainted with Markarian. I le is the kind wild is a little euphoric and thinks that all's well with the world all of the time. We never expect him to deviate from the middle of the road. ALBERT MARTrCCI “AI" was oiir President during the KreShman era and again during our Junior Nightmare. As such he acquitted himself creditably. It is not political scheming which gains him office but rather a natural affability that disarms his fellow sufferers. He is best described bv saying that lie is the material out of which good Rotarians, Elks. Kiwanians. Knights of Pythias, etc., are made and the word “Service" will probably, tho quite incomprehensibly. lx. his Oj en Sesame to the things he wants. EUGENE H. MOHR Dutch's supportive apparatus is encased in number 15 shoes. His toes always show around a corner several seconds liefore the rest of his august physique. Being considerate, he swears in Pennsylvania Dutch so that we won't feel hurt. We have never seen him doing anything out of the way. He will he one of the solid pillars of his community, stable, righteous. sober, dependable, proper and conventional. JOSEPH MULLEN Mullen must have a lot of dough judging by the taxi bills he paid while on O. 1 . duty at the (rreatheart. He is quite a stump speaker and delighted in dilating on many subjects especially football. He and Vernon are par-ticeps in criminis in conducting the Mills meetings. To see him without a cigar in his mouth was as rare as seeing a good musical comedy or an honest lawyer or a chaste Mormon. MEYER NIMAROFF Nimaroff is about as self-sufficient as that admirable fellow he somewhat resembles—“Cyrano de Bergerac.” As sedulous as they come, he was a godsend to some of his neighbors in the rear. You'd have to crack a good one before he'd crack a smile. 1 le and Vernon surely made strange bedfellows. 75CHARLES W. OSTRUM Behind Charlie’s awkward, bulky frame lies a heart as soft as butter. His spit curl is by far the cutest in the state. Ostrum. genial soul that he is, has had a variegated career, having been a railroader, teacher, pharmacist, photographer, automobilist and now, temporarily we suppose, a medico. What next? We could tell his walk a mile away and recognize his drawl amongst a million others. VICTOR PELOSI When Victor was only a larval medico he was already some plethoric little baby. Someone said he looked like a cigar delicately tapering at both ends. Most chair manufacturers have no knowledge nor respect for the width of his j elvis. We liked his carefree attitude as he ambled along nonchalantly with his Chaplinesque toddle plus a dash or two of spasticity. We visualize the twinkle in his eye as he, with great deliberation, buttons his coat (one button) and walks towards a pulchritudinous pink nurse. He prefers to stick with the crowd, for what’s the use of spitting against the wind? GRIFFITH RATCLIFFE This clean-cut gentleman visits our crime-kissed shores every day and leaves us the richer by it. They're building the bridge so that more of his kind can do likewise, for lie’s essentially straight, an eager student, an interesting talker and if anything worth while is said, a good listener. (He listened to us often.) He has a wonderful sense of humor as was attested by his laughter at our jokes. Wherever there is fun he's there to enjoy it and wherever there isn’t he does his best to create it. SAMUEL CREADICK RHOADS One would hardly suspect, just by looking at this suave, pithy, silken gentleman, that he harbors some un-Christian hormones within him and that he is singularly free of moralic acid. For a while Dick and Vic used to do things together; they even didn’t study together. loiter he limited his activities exclusively to the unfair sex which behaves before him like oleomargarine before an actelylene torch. There isn’t a parlor trick current of which he isn't cognizant. Recently he has sworn off blind dates and has begun to cherish a fondness for animals—in fact, it has been said that all Rhoads lead to the Alligator. EDWARD II. ROBIXSOX Shuns strife and turmoil and argument as one shuns a plague. Xot being addicted to giving free vent to his ideas it is only on close observation that one can see a disillusioned semi-cvnical smile playing over his face which seems to say: "The guv who first said Medicine was a science must have been kidding and these gullible saps swallowed it whole.’’ EARL W. ROTHERMEL Despite the universal knowledge that he is a Benedict we saw every nurse in the Hospital casting glances towards Rothermel. 11c has a way with him. all right. His ready smile, eager handshake and ability to converse easily in Dutch made things easy for him. The weird gurgling noises which dismayed the rest of the class during Dr. Swalm’s hour were finally traced by a delicate seismograph to have their origin al out Rothermcl’s person. SAMUEL SCHWARTZMAX When this omniscient mite, with a suggestion of enteroptic facies (Dr. Oliensis, please note) was made, vacillation was left out. Xine out of ten think what they are told—not he. To anyone who is willing to listen (or unwilling for that matter) Sammy furiously massages his eardrums with 76that liquid, incessant, argumentative barrage that is such a necessary adjunct to the Schwartzmanian logic. Bicarb to him was a ccrbral aphrodisiac which launched hint on a campaign of propaganda for the conversion of the infidel to the efficacy of that salt. We all have our swear words and his was “By Carbonate of Soda.” Treatment was always so simple. Alkalani .e your patient, that’s all-lie it a corn or pediculosis; asthma or varicose veins; paresis or loss of weight due to alkalosis—the indicated rigid regimen of Bicarb, is not only palliative but actually specific. UK chosen specialty, as he put it. was •'Inflammation—before, during and after." Like Osier he was a good deal of a therapeutic nihilist. He thus established himself as no mental kangaroo. II is mind reduces problems to their basic principles. Generalizations are his forte Altogether he’s a delightful chap. His arguments are always on ideas, never on j ersonalitics. His sedulousness was attested to by the continuous rewriting of his notes. All these things distinguish him from the common run of male mammals. Let's hope he never gets cured from his tertiary Sch wart mania. HOWARD DON SIVITZ Don was first among us to raise a mustache and, with that as a nucleus, tried to build a decent face around it ever since. His acquisitive instincts are noticeable t. i. d. especially at noon time. To him one chunk of butter is far from enough to make a meal just as one swallow is far from enough to make a case of Delirium Tremens. If he doesn’t dig his grave with his teeth we don’t know who will. Besides being exposed to Medicine Don is a warbler, athlete and Etymologist of international renown. During examinations he expresses himself in six syllable words having infinite faith in the ability of his fraters to spell. His aggressiveness will undoubtedly earn for him a comfortable niche in his profession. N XORMAX SOWELL This dolichocephalic. Nordic blond, with his reserved demeanor, sails through life with remarkably little friction. For the last year he’s been busy raising vegetables and a kid. the latter fact probably being the stimulant responsible for his acquisition of the Pediatric Prize. MAURICE SPECTOR Living in the hick town known as Logan, “Spec” spends most of his time in West Philly (nice Kid there) visiting his home occasionally and school a bit more frequently. He always makes his “Jicxt” class on time. Medicine alone does not consume his entire time and business (Oh Yellow!). Art, Finance also find room on his daily menu. LOUIS STEINBERG Lou came to us in our Senior year and so our detective agency had to work fast to "get a line” on him. We 77soon learned that he knew his stuff and could hold his own in any argument: also that he proclaimed himself an artist of no mean accomplishments and a first-class politician in our premier metropolis. We are indebted to him for some valuable information on the dosage of codeine and the fluid extract of chloroform. FRANCIS DE SALES STOKES Many times has I 'rank informed 11s just what, when and why. Only Ver-rei leads him in taking the floor and displaying vocal pyrotechnics. Stokes always looks immaculate, nay. aseptic. How many of us will forget his serial Service Talks which decorated the hoards almost daily? Or his effective-way of ojxrning doors during his Freshman year ? BERT THOMPSON “Tommie,” as he is affectionately known to us. is probably the chief instigator of the escapades of his roommates. You simply can’t be good with him around. lie’s made Geriks and Cal and Delohery what they are today. Tommie possesses considerable argumentative ability and we caution you. gentle and admiring reader, not to cross swords with him in a duel of words, for. when you're short of breath Tommie has just begun to warm tip and will run you through with his “No. that’s not right.” There isn't a textbook printed that he hasn’t bought. WILLIAM VERNON In the “Credo” of this frail and delicate flower of Genus Homo, that looks as if it might wither at the slightest untoward blast, is an article on "Rumination” to which he closely adheres. Cut Plug and Beechnut will yet develop a case of hemihypertrophy of the face for him. Is it any wonder that he made such a rep. spitballing for the Temple Nine? The early myth that he was acromegalic is now as dead as the Byzantine empire. Considering his size, no lecturer dared raise a hand against him except in self defense. That his scholastic attainments were recognized is shown bv his election to the helm of the Pediatric Society. SCOTT P. VERREI Scotty is always on trigger's end. I le is at his best during class meetings where he is as far ahead of everyone else in making motions as the horse you didn’t bet on. We used to marvel at the ease with which he worked himself up into a lather over matters of ephemeral importance. His sartorial effulgence and the bounding dash with which he tackled extra - curricular activities are so obvious that they hardly need mention. FA IA N CEL WEI N BE R( 1E R Little, but oh my! Manny was small in stature but a veritable little dynamo in action. He was always full of j ep and fun and helped tremendously in breaking up the tedium of our school days by his numerous pranks. He played the “uke.” did the Charleston and wore collegiate clothes. He was a good student at school and during his vacation he did quite a bit of hospital work and told us about it afterwards. We are indebted to Manny for many moments of fun and his instructive talks on the uses of Acri-flavin. Scarlet Red. Oil of Chaulmoo-gra and the treatment of T. B. He was also quite a politician and it was chiefly through his untiring efforts that most of the hoys succeeded in getting hospital appointments—at least that’s what he said. EDWARD J. F. WIZA Ed was especially affective in aborting "Spicy’s” fierce onslaughts when the latter was on the warpath scalping everyone he quizzed. For instance, when asked about a fine point in the administration of a rather rare laxative he said. "Well, give him castor oil and be done with it.” causing even Dr. Morgan’s face to irradiate a smile. FRANK ZABOROWSKI "Zabbie,” with his shell-rimmed glasses, his hair parted in the middle and his studious look presented a typical clinical picture of the ideal medical student. His appearance did not belie the man. Frank was one of the most attentive and studious men in the class and through his industry and application brought honor upon himself on more than one occasion. 785th t History uyy isJi h — lit- On September 20, 1922, a small band of earnest voting men congregated on the “old campus" in front of Baldwin's This was the nucleus of the class of '26 of the Temple University Medical School. The laboratories being as yet closed or unfinished, we wandered around Buttonwood Street meeting each other and making friendship which were to last us for four laborious years. W ithin a few weeks classes got under full swing, and little by little we came to know our professors and in general became acclimated to the work. The new arrivals on the faculty that year were Dr. Parkinson, Associate Dean; Dr. Melvin A. Saylor, Professor of Physiological Chemistry: Dr. A. C. Morgan. Professor of Applied Therapeutics, and Dr. J. P. Tunis, Professor of Histology and Embryology. With the aid of Dr. Parkinson, our class organized and elected officers. On November 12. 1922, the high and mighty sophomores invited the class to a reception held in the College Gym. Within a few weeks we reciprocated, borrowing a page from the book in "Shinology,” so efficiently executed by our illustrious and shining predecessors. Except for these brief periods of recreation and relaxation, the first year typified to most of us incessant work. It will be a long time before we can forget those grueling and breathless quizzes by Dr. Clinton Hermann or those wordy, neck-breaking lectures on "flowering tops, etc. ' by Dr. Scheele, or those aweinspiring amboceptors, antigens and complements of Dr. Eugene Asnis. But all these clouds, like all gocxl. law-abiding and union card clouds, had their respective silver lining. And so we shall never forget Dr. Chesner's interesting anecdotes and witticisms nor Dr. Metheny’s pleasant informal talks on all subjects, including cranial osteology. With all this work piling up on us, still our chief problem was how to dodge Dr. Hermann while walking into the dissecting-room at 9.45. Pelosi and Rhoads will testify to the above. The days and months flew by and Finals were announced. The last mad scramble for knowledge was on, and from the crack of the pistol to the last Final in Medical Terminology, everything was work and anxiety and then more work and a little more anxiety. But soon it was all over, and the summer vacation was on. 80 Sophomore Year We returned in September refreshed and determined to do bigger and better work. Many of us felt relieved, knowing that Anatomy and Dr. Hermann’s quizzes were things of the past. But this euphoria was short lived, for soon we were introduced to a new instrument of torture. “Pathology" in the very capable hands of I)r. Fanz and Dr. Gault. And they did work us. keeping us in eternal fear of unannounced exams and their consequences. But altogether the Sophomore Year was a very pleasant one. The interesting and instructive lectures delivered by Dr. Hickey in his quiet, unassuming, yet impressive, manner were revealations in themselves. The quiet, restful, drowsy afternoons with Dr. Sajous and the rabbit: the busy mornings in the "drum-smoking’’ physiology lab and immaculate chemistry-room: the entertaining hour with Dr. Jourdin with his quaint "like-a-for instance," and the peppy excursions into the principles of Surgery with Dr. Steele, all added to our knowledge and enjoyment. Soon after the term had gotten under way the class organized, elected officers and held a reception for the incoming freshmen. Before we had entirely gotten our bearings the weeks sped by. and once again we faced the bane of a medical student's existence—final exams. However, we came, we saw. and most of 11s conquered, arid we shoved off for three joyous months of freedom. Junior Year At the Samaritan Hospital at last! What a change! Stethoscopes in our pockets and gleams of intelligence on our faces. Ward walks and clinics at Block-ley. pleasant afternoons among the fair coeds at Broad and Montgomery, Surgical Clinics with Dr. Steele and a host of new teachers and experiences. Soon we were introduced to Dr. Morgan and his spicy quizzes, and many an anxious moment did we spend wondering whether it was going to be a quiz or a lecture. Drs. Tarrant and Emich entertained us well, while Dr. Bochroch. that charming personality, rambled on dementia praecox for a whole year, and Dr. Hersey Thomas with his sparkling wit vjl. damned the "damned democrats.” 'Phis year was indeed an eventful one. Due wing of the New Samaritan Hospital was completed before our return to school. Ground was being broken for the southern wing of the building. The basement of the Nurses’ Home comprised one lecture room. 'Hie old operating room was our clinical amphitheatre. All these inconveniences were as nothing in the face of the absorbing work and the thoughts of the future of Temple Medical School. On November 26, 1924, our beloved Dr. Russell H. Con well laid the cornerstone for the final structure of the new Samaritan, lending more and more reality to our dreams of Temple’s future! But even in our hours of rejoicing a great blow was dealt to us—our most beloved teacher and friend. Dr. David Gregg Metheny, passed into the “Great Beyond.” It was with sincere emotion and sorrow that the class mourned for its great loss. 81 h t kull Working like Trojans to keep abreast of the maze of work thrust upon us, we soon found ourselves taking one final examination after another. For three long and seemingly endless weeks we were examined and emerged, weak, pale and dyspnoeic and worthy of the vacation in from of us. Seniors The class returned in the fall eager for that last long mile on the homestretch. A good many sorted hirsute adornments on their upper lips, and most of us in some way or other strived to attain "that professional look.” Some of the men had worked in hospitals and clinics during the summer and reminded us of that fact on more than one occasion. The Senior year, from the start, promised to be a very pleasant one. accustomed as we were to the interminable, didactic lectures and note-taking of the preceding year. The abundance of clinic hours on the roster was almost too good to be true. Hut pleasant as the year was. it was by no means an idle one—obstetric cases had to be worked off. surgical and anesthesia ‘'assists” had to be obtained, quizzes had to be prepared for and. above all. hospital appointments had to be looked after. In addition, the class decided to again emulate the "shining" example of the former senior class and have a year book. This meant hours of work and thought for many of us. but at this writing our efforts are beginning to show results, and our aim for a bigger and better book shall soon be realized. f L lyf? Slowly, oh. how slowly, these last few weeks dragged by. Sammy Schwartzman well expressed the thoughts of many of us when he said. "Give me my diploma and a barrel of sodium bicarbonate, and let me loose on the unsuspecting public.” Probably this was the first time that Sammy voiced the opinion of the majority. and at that he dragged in his beloved bicarb. The instruction tainly i tires an given us in our last year was certainly invaluable. Those wonderful lectures 'and clinics by Dr. Robertson were nothing short of inspiring. Dr. Babcock’s clinics. Dr. Mills’ children’s parties. Dr. Applegate's masterful Caesarean exhibitions. Dr. Boch-roch’s Saturday afternoon seances at Blockley. Dr. Stickler's "Skinologv simplified” and Dr. Ornsteen’s movie shows all helped to make our senior year a very profitable one. I. F.JUNIORS AND AFTER 'v£ QJUNIOR CLASS h«f tt The present Junior class enjoys the distinction of being the most misrepresented class in Temple University. Characterized by I)r. Morgan as a “Hunch of Young Cynics” and by certain other professors in even less complimentary terms, it nevertheless counts as members many men who undoubtedly will leave their impress upon the medical thought of their time. In what way they will do this is still a matter of conjecture. The Senior class may not be willing to concede this honor, but we can justly point with pride to the very vivid impression left with such members of the faculty as have already been our mentors. The mettle of this class has been tried in the fires of adversity. Of the original fifty-six members, less than 45 | cr cent, remain. The others for some reason or other became discouraged with the science of medicine and have turned their energy to other professions more to their liking. Those who remain are tried true and loyal and fit. They have the proper attitude. Theirs is the habit of study. They are looking forward with serious mien and intent to fit themselves for that time when their expressed opinions will be worth pure gold. A proof of this seriousness of intent will be found in the fact that 25 per cent, of the class possess and are trying to acquire moustaches. This is far from being a perfect average, but in this modern day of advertising it is hard to resist the widespread propaganda for clean shaving and that such a fair number should resist such a temptation is an index of the unselfishness of spirit and the willingness for self-sacrifice with which these men approach the goal of their ambitions. I do not wish to cast any aspersions on the fine attributes of the lady in our class, but she is unable to demonstrate this kind of unselfishness by the very nature of things. Great men have a been own era. Our class is no exception to this law of human weakness. Every day in class and quizz innovations are disclosed, original diagnoses are made, hitherto unheard of treatments suggested and yet astounding as they are. they arc ridiculed and rejected. It is my most earnest hope that some day I may be afforded the pleasure of saying to the skeptical—I TOLD YOU SO! J. C. 85 Junior SMedical C ass Babbitt, Joseph J. Baglivo, J. A. Barranco, S. ii.

There under Dr. Metheny’s hand we struggled to find out what it all meant. The Sophomores evidently took pity on us for in November, we were their guests at the Majestic, where Dr. Parkinson had us all nervous in his short talk to medical students' girls. Christmas—home—and then a real loss to Temple in Dr. Metheny’s death. For a while we seemed rudderless, but ere long Dr. John B. Roxby proved we had a real pilot and a worthy successor at the anatomy helm. In February, we played polite hosts to the Sophomores and predatory upperclassmen when we again out-danced them, but after a short rest at Easter, we returned to linger a moment in the sweet tranquil atmosphere and elections before plunging into the finals. Boy what a grand and glorious feeling when the lil green slips said O.K. Maybe the theory of compensation holds though for with this good fortune, Dr. Parkinson’s resignation was announced and the demonstration he received in the upper aniph told him where he stood in our hearts. And now a new year—new troubles and the same old question dressed differently “Will we be Juniors?” Again the time approaches when Ye Faculty Axe Falleth and yet as the soot of an occasional midnight lamp smudges the housewife’s wall we pause to acknowledge the passing of our founder—to welcome his successor and greet our Associate Dean.

Gallagher..................................Pice-President Bernard A. Neweli........................................Secretory Gerald H. Miller........................................Treasurer, y Early this fall sixty men, representing nearly anequal number of sections of our country, inspired by the marvels of Medicine and having decided to make it their life's work, eagerly awaited the opening of the school year that they might Ik initiated into the study of that great science which has as its motives man's benefits and the alleviation of his sufferings. Today, nearing the completion of the first year, these same sixty men present a rather tired, fatigued, and studv-weary appearance mingled with helplessness and perplexity. When we gaze, sometimes disparingly, at our massive text books and realize that we should know what is contained between their covers the feeling of helplessness overcomes us, and when we try to picture what might be asked of us in the finals it is then that we are perplexed. The year scents to have been characterized by one grand "rush." during which work and more work was piled on us. As one member of the faculty remarked: "We did not know whether we were coming or going half the time.” And yet, in spite of the difficult task, although some of our professors refuse to believe that we have ever rolled up ur sleeves, the gruelling quizzes, the intensive grind, the muclt-iLsed midnight oil. the anxiety whenever the word "exam" was mentioned: the heart symptoms when a professor entered with test blanks under his arm. and the disappointment experienced over returned test marks—We can all say that the Freshman Year has l een a fascinating one. Every fact, every statement was new to us. Each produced respect for the teller and the subject. It is the year in which we build our ideals, form Our heroes, and even go to the extreme of worshipping the pioneers and greats of Medicine. Hitherto closed avenues of learning were ojx ned for us. medical wonders and mysteries were laid bare before us. The privilege of being enabled to intelligently understand a discussion of the problems of medicine is a cherished novelty to the first-year student; and the privilege of discussing with authority a medical subject with one who knows nothing about it, first having made sure that anyone who does know something about it is not around, is a right thoroughly enjoyed by every Freshman. Although a year is a short period of time in which to prove a class’ worth, nevertheless ours must have already impressed its abilities upon our faculty. In recent lectures we were told that medical men of today and their predecessors had as vet l ccn tmaldc to ascertain the true nature of vitamins, or a cure for cancer, etc., and that inasmuch as they had failed it would be left for us to make these discoveries. Of course, we realize this. too. hut at the present time we are indeed tix busy to make these discoveries, but will probably do so the first opportunity we get. . 'v A short time ago our professor of Histology, after a practical, oral examination given to one of the members of our class, urged and recommended that he lose no time in publishing his book on the subject because bis views were so radically different front any he had ever heard. Which Only proves that there are those among us who will even differ with authorities in an endeavor to give Science something new. Moments that we shall never forget and might rightly be entitled "Thrills of a Freshman" were: The first time we were addressed as "doctor” by a member of the faculty and the first incision into our cadavers. Certainly John B. Dcavcr never felt so important. As inspired as we were at the beginning of the year about the study of Medicine, the ending finds these same feelings within us only more intensified. We realize that we have undertaken one of man’s most serious callings—that of giving and preserving life. It is a difficult study and a still more difficult life after study days at school are over. We recognize these facts, hut feel tltat at least our compensation will lie in that we arc in work that we care for. We are proud of our undertaking, intend to give it our very best, and arc grateful to our University and its faculty for the opportunity to study. T. H. M.

CREADICK. RHOADS ....................Treasurer Out of great regard for their teacher the charter members organized and founded what was known as the John C. Applegate Obstetrical Society, the first undergraduate Society in the Medical School. The first regular meeting was held on October 4th, 1907. at the Samaritan Hospital. Any student in good scholastic standing is eligible for membership. The membership, however, was limited to fifty students, these being made up of Seniors and Juniors. The object of the Society is to stimulate the Medical Student to attain a better knowledge of the practice of Obstetrics and to promote a better understanding lietween teachers and students. Monthly meetings are held by the Society at Vhich papers on assigned Obstetrical subjects arc read and thoroughly dissected. Since the instructors as well as the students participate in the discussion the benefits derived are many. Some member of the staff, often Professsor Applegate, closes the discussion, interspersing bare facts with intereseting accounts of .actual cases. During the month of February a social and scientific joint meeting of the Applegate Obstetrical and Mills Pediatric Societies is held. This has come to be an annual affair. Paj ers are read by members of both Societies on their res| ective subjects after which the remainder of the evening is spent socially. On the tenth anniversary of the Society a room was furnished in the Smaritan Hospital known as the John C. Applegate Obstetrical Society Room. Each year something is added to the room bv the members of the Society. The room is on the third floor of the hospital facing Jiroad Street. The final meeting of the Society is a banquet tendered by the Honorary President at his home to the members. It is a Scientific and Social meeting combined, the scientific program being a "Question Box.” Questions are submitted by the students, the President reads them and appoints other students to answer them. Professor Applegate and the other members of the staff clear up anything about which there is some doubt. Elections of officers for the following year are then held. The rest of the evening is made pleasant for us by our genial host and hostess who make us feel very much at home. 99 F. L. Z.

NESDEY ...............Chairman, Program Committee The Hickey Physiological Society was founded in October, 1923, by a small group of thirty students. V J J At that time, this group little realized that they were initiating what has proven to be an intense interest in physiology. For the Society has steadly grown until today it numbers 225, embracing members from all four classes. being the largest Society in the University. Although the business of the Society is conducted mainly by the Sophomore members, the upper classmen have not lagged in their interest. At the monthly meetings papers of physiological interest are read by the members—usually one from each class. In conjunction with this some prominent member of the profession is asked to address the Society, on a topic of medical interest. During the past year the following men have honored as by their presence: Dr. W illiam Hughes. Dr. H. L. Bockus. Dr. J. Kennedy. Dr. John B. Roxbv and our Honorary President Dr. Hickey In addition, through the courtesy of Doctors Chevalier Jackson. Clerf Tucker, we had the pleasure of an illustrated lecture on Bronehoscopv and Oesophagoscopv. • WiT . I . W Interest in the Society is not confined to its active members, for the meetings are open to all students of the University and to laymen, many of whom attend. • ,'s. . The great strides that the Society has made are in no small measure due to the untiring efforts of Professor I. Garrett ilickey, whose counsel is frequently sought and as willingly given. The Society also wishes to express its sincere appreciation of the interest shown by Doctors John B. Koxby, John I. Fanz and Melvin A. Saylor. With sustained activity bv the student body aided by the advice and counsel of the I''acuity, may we hope that the Hickey Physiological Society will long continue to exert its influence on student life at Temple University Medical School.

November 18. 1916. a number of students of the School of Medicine of Temple University met in the Library of the Professional Building at Eighteenth and Buttonwood Streets. The purpose of the ;ting was to organize a Pediatric Society for the furtherance of the study and research in Pediatrics. Their object was to give those especially interested in this work an opportunity to be brought in closer contact with the little child, and. through various subjects discussed at the meetings, to be of greatci value to the community in years to conic. Society." The chartered members teen and elected the following as their first officers: Henry E. Guth, President: George G. Burgeron; Vice-President; V. W ilson Poulson, Treasurer, and T. Maude Ramer, Secretary. Immediately a constitution was drawn up. limiting the membership to fifty, meetings to be held monthly and upon graduation each member to receive a diploma from the Society. These preparations led to the first meeting of the Society which was held on Friday evening. November 8. 1916. in the Library of the Professional Building. At this meeting it was decided that members of the Society rejjort cases that were seen in the dispensary or bring forth the questions that were not clearly understood. This idea has been carried down to the present day when at each meeting of the Society two memebrs read papers, which are followed by discussions from Faculty and active members. The Society also has certain social functions which it performs annually. At the March meeting Professor Mills arranges to have some prominent member of the profession to address the Society. Again, dating back to February, 1918. an annual event is the joint meeting with the Professor J. C. Applegate ()l stetrical Society, of the Temple Medical School. In April of each year the annual banquet of the Society is held, on or near the same date as the birthday of its Honorary President. At this banquet alumni members assemble from distant points to honor Professor Mills and relate experiences and benefits to be gained by being a member of the Society. E. I. O., Secretary.

Rinkf.r.................................................Secretory f j I ww t History Just twenty-one years ago last October the W. W'avne P.abcock Surgical Society was formed due to the efforts of Dr. Ym. A. Steel and a few of the students. The following officers were elected at that time: William A. Steel, B.S., M.D.. President: M. A. Manning, Vice-President; Jules Prcvost. Secretary: 11. W. Boehringer, Treasurer. The purpose of the Society is to become better acquainted with the fundamentals and rapid advance in surgical science Meetings are held twice each year. Up to the present time one meeting has been held, this taking place at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel in the form of a dinner program. Drs. John O. Power and Jefferson H. Clark of our own surgical staff together with Drs. J. E. Sweet and D. A. Wagoner of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Medicine were the principal speakers of the evening after which Professor Babcock properly closed the meeting with a few remarks The membership, which in former years was limited to thirty, was raised to thirty-five due to the large increase in the size of the classes. The new members are selected each year bv the active members of the society. Of the thirty-five members of the society, twenty are seniors, ten are juniors and five are sophomores. At the last meeting each year a banquet is given by Professor Babcock to the society. This is eagerly looked forward to each year, not only for the joyous festivities which take place at that time, but also for the benefit derived from the able sj eakers and the association with the various members of the staff. !).

( . And so the conversation ran. Reasons were given by the protagonists of each opinion. "By Galen,” said the irrepressible class humorist, who, despite his life’s choice still retained his sense of humor, "this is some sport, eh? Excitement all the time! Soon this will be a recognized sport. Like the races at Saratoga. Or a prize fight in the arena. In time there will be betting on the Wall Street Curb; the newspapers will report quotations daily. Everyone will watch the ticker. 3 to 2, or 7 to 5, for or against an examination. Ha! Ha! Ha! Life for us is certainly becoming one grand gamble.” “You gargled a throatful there, brother,” chiri ed another in an exclusively medical vernacular, "look at me ousting this one today. Stayed up all last night trying to straighten the Eye’ out and today we got it in the rear instead. And last week we all expected Gynie and got Dermatology instead.” "It’s a skin game all right” chortled our humorist, ducking a board rubber acrobatically. "But listen” evenly came from one. who it is bruited about, was our only teetotaler before prohibition. "If we were always up in our work as we are supposed to be, we wouldn’t fear surprise exams at all.” "That’s a peach of a reason theoretically,” countered our tiny classmate, always itching for an argument, "but there is a Haw in it somewhere. One simply can’t be prepared on all the fine points of twenty different subjects all the time. One may have an intelligent idea of them and vet want notice so that some of the rough edges could l e chiseled off and polished up a little. For the fine points are very frequently what are asked. "That should l e done by us whether we think an exam is coming or not. But its really no use trying to be a sanative influence upon you on this subject. Every time surprise exams are mentioned you go off on an emotional drunk and lose your usual mental balance—those three cells of yours, as Dr. Thomas says, go all awry.” The rest of the group seeing the conversational rights usurped by these two as usual and, knowing what they were in for, wisely stepped out of the picture. “Aw! let’s eat.” said the Pittsburghian who was the notorious possessor of the symptoms of diabetes, pica, tapeworms and bullemia: "the Italian joint today?” Another was accelerated by the recollection that there might be roll-call in his section today. Another went out for some air not before, however, borrowing a cigarette. “So’s Your Old Man” nobly countered the one whose turn it is next to speak (we sort of lost track—it’s probably the little fellow); “I’m not set for an iconoclastic orgy today at all. But you do give me a pain in the—eh—well, at least in the neck. Now look! Tomorrow we have eight hours on our bill of fare. Any one 120of them may be converted to a third degree. Can I. admittedly brilliant as I am, possibly go over eight subjects in one night with any degree of thoroughness? ----“But if you do your work nightly and listen attentively in class day bv day a mere re-reading of your notes will be sufficient” softly, unshakenly, exasperat-ingly retorted the other end of the dialogue. ----"Can you beat that?” wildly gesticulated our favorite in this debate, “You make me so mad that if I were a little more carnivorous this would stop being a verbal melee. Someone might think, listening to you. that there is a chance of listening attentively in class. But can one really do so with the venerable lecture system still extant? One has to concentrate entirely on taking notes, oft given at blinding speed, to the exclusion of everything else. One can't follow and write at once. How often do you miss a sentence, a phrase, a word and have to bend over to see your neighbour’s paper who is doing likewise to you with the resultant formation of two beautiful hematomas? How often is an illustration put on the board which might have a sufall chance of being comprehended but loses that chance because you have to write at the same time and, trying to do both, you can do neither well? Our teachers, among other things labor under the fallacy that if a fact be written down by a student he will inevitably remember it. What ingenuous optimism! This may apply to a telephone number or your bootlegger’s address or your present sweetheart’s second name, but when you write every day, all day, during a union forty-four hour week there is an entirely different complexion on the matter. The bulk of the writing destroys the purpose. Besides letting the students get things down wrong. And becoming physically exhausted. And mentally obtudant. And the feeling that they are sheer automatons. ----“My! But you do like to hear yourself talk. Don’t forget, please, this isn’t intended to be a monologue. You either give me a chance to make some sounds with my mouth or I’ll quit. And if I do you won’t finish your point. And the author will have nothing with which to fill this space. And the readers will be undeservedly lucky. Now, listen! Don’t you think that if they are all doing it the system must have some merit ? “In the l eginning the lecture system was necessary because there were no text books. But now there are and the lecture system with its vicious corollary note-taking is a survival, an atavism, of that era. Not that I think we ought to be permitted to depend entirely on text-books although I’m not so sure it would do us much harm. But in this age of efficiency with thousands of l obbed-hair ruminants eager to tickle an Underwood, every instructor could easily have a set of notes containing everything he is going to hold us for given to each of us,—a practice, you know, in vogue in many other colleges.” ----“To return to surprise exams, would they be all right if notes were given _ v» ' you r ----"No! they still would be unnecessary. Their purpose of keeping us primed up constantly could be served just as well by giving us announced exams frequently. And the pernicious results of surprise exams would thus be eliminated. It isn’t the work I’m objecting to but the anguish of uncertainty. Constant worry is not exactly conducive to low blood pressure. One can’t do his best with a sword of Damocles always above him. To study right one must have some leisure; the thought that tomorrow one may be attacked by any one of seven or eight positively paralyses any initiative one may have for little researches into subjects that interest one from time to time. One has to forego the benefit of collateral reading for the same reason, and like a groundhog bury oneself in ill-taken, oft unintelligible notes. And as I said before the constant spectre of an exam, the 121She 1mU strain and tension, makes one even unfit for notes, why ..." ----“Enough for me. I’m not going to give over my share of the talking to you. Find yourself someone else to talk to, if you can, without pay. So long." —“But a moment and I’ll be through (companion disappears). My Lord! I can’t talk to myself. Just when I was warming up too. Listen, author, you’ve simply got to get me another ...” ----"Oh no! Am running out of ink and space allotted to me is about full anyway. You are usually good when you go out on a vocal spree, an uplifting tirade, but you're not so hot today. I feel that perhaps you really are talking too much. Tile probabilities are that no one will care a rap what you are saying; you won't even cause a ripple. Besides I want to get on my surgery, we may have an exam tomorrow.” ----"I don’t think so.” ----“I do.” ----“Oh yes!” ----“Oh no!” And so the conversation ran. And reasons were given by the protagonists of each opinion . . . H M. S. V II. Crime and Punishment To begin with, gentle reader, it must be explained that the writer of these poor lines is what is colloquially termed a queer cuss. For despite the fact that he is a Senior he considers himself neither of the elite nor erudite. What may have been said in the prehistoric premed days is quite another story. In those days tachycardia and a marked thoracic bulge followed the mere suggestion of being regarded as medical. Even his gait increased in amplitude at times becoming a strut. By this time one would naturally suppose the condition to have assumed a hopeless chronicity and suspect his cranial sutures of being under a tension just short of the breaking point. Especially when you consider the subtly flattering and calculating remarks of the so-called fair sex—particularly those approximately of his own age—usually so deadly in their effects. But, believe it or not, on macroscopic examination of his calvarium there is no evidence of an incoercible hydrocephalus, no. not a trace of the previous malady. Because, strange as it may seem, he mentally files the feminine contingent into two groups— Flatterers and Scoffers. And those business j eople from whom he receives an occasional pamphlet with the as yet unmerited title affixed he dismisses lightly, considering them as sordidly commercial. So you see he takes the use of the title in regards to himself in a very light vein. Nevertheless, things don’t seem to be right to him. He has an axe to grind. For it affords him exquisite tormina to witness the voraciousness with which the title is seized upon by the multiplicity of cults which infest every neighborhood. He hears a voice from the burning bush and sets out to effect a reform. This country is fairly swarming with doctors. Mankind, at least cisatlantic, is at present divided into two main categories—Doctors and Laity; both in about equal proportion. Under the second class (Laity) are grouped the victims and beneficiaries of the first. Group one is comprised of veterinarians, dentists, theologians, barbers, chiropodists, physicians, plumbers, spectro-chrome therapists, manicurists, physical culturists and osteopaths, not to speak of masseurs, psychologists, psychoanalysts, tree surgeons, thesis-scribblers, dancing masters, chiro- 122praetors and so on ad nauseam. One cannot understand and, is absolutely at a loss to explain the apparent hesitancy on the part of proprietors of doll and shoe hospitals to adopt the designation once the exclusive possession of the followers of Aesculapius. After assiduous study of the two groups you may wonder what exactly the line of demarcation between them is. On inspection of the immortals which help comprise group one, one is struck with the thought that the only difference between that and the second group is in the degree of gullibility, which gives him a constructive idea. Ah! no one shall say he wrecks, destroys, tears down without offering as a suitable substitute a plan for a better way. The author’s first thought is: Why not do away with a good old “Mister” altogether and call everyone “Doctor” be he gullible or not? For after all there is not even an apparent difference between a bone-tickler and a piano-mover, or a psychologist and a plasterer or a theologian and a fireman. But his second plan, which after years of mature delil eration he favors most, is not a bit more intricate. It consists, in brief, in resorting according to the fashion of the day, to that panacea for all of our real and imaginary ills—Legislation. Who will dispute the pertinence of this step when conclusive evidence that legislation is a potent prophylactic and corrective for all wrongs and peccadillos stares one in the face? Who would be so rash as to question its feasibility after seeing that what we want to do or might want to do is so pre-emptorily settled and controlled by our law mongers? It is inspiring to feel that we are plastic puppets in the hands of our legal minds who manufacture laws in terms of masfe-produc-tion. But to return to our humble plan, as Uriah Heep would say, it is the quintessence of simplicity. In short we would present a bill properly drawn up and agreed to by our representatives who have been duly elected by the voters (actual and phantom) which would have for its noble purpose the prohibition of the loose assumption of the coveted title. Regardless of the Etiology, be it trade, profession. dogma or fancy, he who should exploit the usage of the term without having proper credentials to show for it shall be prosecuted severely and speedily by the creaky machinery of law, the sentence to be not less than a seven-year course in medicine, nor more than the former plus a two-year intemeship. Under no condition should the sentence be commuted. With this punishment in view, all quacks and other such vermin will undoubtedly vanish with astonishing rapidity; no one, no matter how daring he be, nor how tempting the yellow magnet of gold, will have the courage to even think of bootlegging medicine. The American public with its characteristic and profound reverence for all laws, would at once consider anyone transgressing the law as impostor and knave and make a pariah of him, and so in this way those without degrees who now impose on the incredibly credulous laity will perish from the resulting financial and social pernio, while on the other thenar eminence, those properly entitled to a degree will reap the benefits of their supposedly hard work. The medical profession to whom, above all, the promiscuous use of the term has been a furuncle would benefit (get the point?); the charlatans would be dealt a deliciously ecchymotic orbit. After this simple exhibition of his theme the author, in his humble way, as Uriah Ileep would say, now considers everything in readiness for the synthesis and descent of a “lobby” upon Harrisburg and the other gangrenous areas in our states.

Sonic son you’ve got, General—Yes Sir! and I don’t mean perhaps either. Can you imagine it. Senor? I dragged out a 97 in the final exam on a most important subject, the highest mark in the class. Just think of it, X-I-X-E-T-Y S-E-Y-E-X, from that strict old beezer, with his ultra-scientific and high-falutin ideas on the complicated technique of arriving at a diagnosis and his new fangled and profound theories on treatment. You know, Dad—this is the big subject of the year, the terror of all Seniors. For fully two weeks everyone neglects all other work, just to prime up for this exam—because it is a major subject and we must all pass it or come away without the much coveted sheepskin. We were all on edge, scared stiff, worrying, oiling ourselves up with coffee, hoping that we don’t fizzle this one. And then the all important day came. Gosh! some of us almost sprung a hemorrhage when the papers were given out. But did I hit that quiz ?—why, Dad, 1 knocked it clean for a row of deciduous teeth, absolutely cuckoo. Doped it all out myself too, most of it anyway, except maybe for a few facts that I accidentally overheard Joe Gump mumble to himself. I sat on the front row, too, and gee! I never knew it was so near! Xot that I wanted a front seat, as do some of my classmates who want to make an impression, but somehow or other, all the rear seats arc taken early on important days, and I, being a little fellow, must take what’s left. On the night licfore the exam, some of the boys coached me. and one of our frat men on the staff quizzed me on all the questions given on that subject for the last eight years. True enough, I let the prof, drive me home in his machine one day and squeezed a few hints out of him as to the probable questions he would ask (a chip of the old block, eh. Dad?) ; that i thought I’d better keep to myself. You see, it wouldn’t do for me to blab what was told me in confidence, now would it? And again why shouldn’t I profit by my brains? It took me quite a time to dope out now to meet him without making it appear 1 was waiting purposely, and suggesting I was going his way. etc. Just think what that mark means on my records! Of course the prize is mine! It ought to be a cinch getting that hospital appointment J wanted, with a grade like that staring the Interncship committee in the face. Why some of the jealous birds in theXclass think 1 don’t deserve the prize. Joe Gump especially thinks lie’s been overlooked, lie claims his paper was exactly like mine, plus many of his own ideas, since he had clone lots of collateral reading, and yet prof, tells him that he muddled things up a bit. Another says he Saw me open a com-pend during the exam, but that's a darned lie, Dad. for I never rely on those things. Xotes are good enough for me. These rumors are sure hot stuff! Why I’d like to see anyone put one over on prof.; especially on the front row—he'd have to be some slick bozo to fool the old hawk. Still with my characteristic broad-mindedness. I can forgive their jealousy. After all, the examination is not the only thing prof, goes bv. It is merely given to make us brush up on our work, not so much to get our rating. He knows us all, what each one of us knows, through and through—from intimate contact 130 with us. All our profs, do. Our school is noted for that. Again attendance counts. Dad and 1 was 100 per cent present. To 1 )e sure I skipped a few lectures, but a fellow as popujar as 1 am is usually present whether attending or not— especially with O.B. as a plausible excuse. So you see. Dad. your prodigy is nobody’s fool—with that Rbinopharyngo-laryngology prize in his l clt, the faculty prize virtually assured, the result of this knockout grade, and prof’s recommendation, your congratulations are in order. I can just picture your joy at the news, and with your usual gratitude at the happiness I’m affording you, writing me a handsome check as a gift. By the way, Dad, I’ll need an optic thalamus, and a choked disc for our course in Ophthalmology, absolutely necessary that we get them too. They are expensive instruments, so make check cover these. Well, so long, Dad. Your loving son, (V Heart ‘Burns I A From the Greatheart v, It was a case of Stand and Deliver—more standing than delivering! Except for an occasional “Bear Down’’ most of us suffered in silence while our beards grew out through the masks.

Speaking of Dr. Murphy’s famous drip, we are reminded of the story of the House Surgeon who ordered for a patient a Murphy drip, two hours on and two hours off. The interne on making rounds with his chief the next day, when asked to see the nurse’s report, turned to it and read to the surgeon as follows: “Patient slept well between the Murphys.” Dr. Strickler, in the course of one of his lectures, told the following story: A Hebrew patient one day came to a very highly touted and expensive specialist for treatment. Knowing that the first fee was a very large one, he when his turn to enter the consultation room came, announced himself as follows: “Well, professor, here 1 am again.” The doctor unhesitatingly retorted "yes, so I see; keep on using the same medicine.
