 Library Temple University Medical School TtcoTHE SKULL of the Class of Nineteen Twenty-Eight TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE ThreeForeword T 7ITH the improvement of the college annual at heart, V the staff of the Nineteen Twenty-Eight Skull has labored to produce in this volume a true reflection of Temple University School of Medicine. The material between the covers of this book is the result of wholehearted cooperation between all members of the staff. Should their efforts count for aught in chronicling and picturing Temple University School of Medicine they will be more than repaid.ARTHUR C. MORGAN Master Therapeutist Master Teacher Master Man The Class of Nineteen Twenty-Eight respectfully dedicates this book as an expression of admiration and esteem.LUX BENIGNA r70 O THE Class of 1928: ( HWe know from the earliest history of Man of his constant desire for Light and Knowledge. The problem may change a little but the underlying motive continues the same. Since early days the Lamp of KnowL edge has been the emblem of the student. Temple University offers to all who enter her portals every opportunity to secure full training in fundamentals for their life work. As a class you have been highly favored by having been in close, intimate, personal contact with her founder, Russell H. Conwell. You caught the inspiration of his presence, you heard his voice, you accepted the challenge he gave to you so that you dare not be false to the example he set for you. Let your every act be worthy of the high calling of the medical profession. Seek after Truth and Light; let science replace empiricism; let there be friendly striving to exalt the virtues and subdue the vices: be true to the best promptings of your inner selves and you will find the life of a physician to be the pathway to fulfillment of your loftiest ambitions. Your friend and teacher, SevenARTHUR C. MORGAN, M.D., Sc.D., F.A.C.P. 1Professor of Applied therapeutics Temlpe University School of Medicine President, The Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania A RTHUR C. MORGAN, M.D., was born in Lost Creek, Schuylkill County, Penn sylvania, on November 14, 1869, of parents both of whom had emigrated from Wales. He received a common'school education, and first worked as a slate picker in the coal mines. Later he became a railroad telegrapher, and worked for the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company for several years. Pursuing a course of night study under tutors, he prepared for entrance upon the study of medicine, was matriculated in the MedicO'ChL rurgical College of Philadelphia on October 1, 1894, and was graduated from that institU' tion on May 18, 1897, immediately entering the Philadelphia General Hospital (Blockley) as a resident physician, where he served for one year. Dr. Morgan located in Philadelphia, and at once became associated with his alma mater as an instructor in medicine, continuing until the merger with the University of Pennsyb vania. He remained as associate in medicine in the undergraduate department of the Uni' versity for three years, and also became associate professor in medicine in the Graduate School, continuing as a member of the staff for five years, at which time he resigned to become professor of applied therapeutics in the School of Medicine of Temple University, Phila' delphia -a chair he still retains. As sub'dean in medicine at the MedicO'Chirurgical College for several years, he was brought into close personal contact with a large number of students. He served for eighteen months in the United States Army, and was assigned to various camps as tuberculosis examiner. From his earliest days in medicine Professor Morgan has devoted himself to teaching, literary reviews, and hospital association, having served as visiting physician to the Phila' delphia General Hospital for nearly twenty'five years, in addition to the Frankford,$amari' tan, Garrettson, and other hospitals. He is also consulting internist to the Eastern State Penitentiary. Professor Morgan has been a member of the Philadelphia County Medical Society for nearly twenty'five years, has served on the board of directors, and was president of the society in 1925, when the epodvmaking action of securing its own home was consummated. EightHe was a member of the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association during the session of 1912 at Los Angeles, and has been a delegate to the Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania for many years, always taking an active part in its transactions. He is a member of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, a member of the Aesculapian Club of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Clinical Association, the Physicians' Motor Club, and the Phi Rho Sigma Fraternity. He received the honorary degree of Doctor of Science from Susquehanna University in 1926. The Doctor is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, a Mason, and belongs to a number of other fraternal bodies. He believes thoroughly in the necessity of organized medicine, and that by the proper activities of our county societies and the observance of medical ethics the practice of the healing art will be made more pleasant and profitable. In reciting these bald facts, the charm and lovableness of his character have not been touched upon. Professor Morgan has a remarkable memory, and it often affords amusement to his friends to hear him give the name, address, medical school year of graduation, office hours, and telephone number of nearly every physician he knows. He is popular with the alumni who studied under his direction, and is endeared to all his students, who have con' ferred upon him the sobriquet of "Spicy”. His profound information on general topics is most illuminating, his sense of humor delightful, and his fund of anecdote inexhaustible. To the Members of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty'Eight, I say that in horn oring Professor Morgan by dedicating your Year Book to him you not only show your appre' ciation of him as a teacher and a man, but also do yourselves honor. You are to be con' gratulated in having been under his tutelage. S. A. S.

This was in April, 1874. The history of this hospital is written large in the records of medical advancement at T. U. From most humble beginning, its growth has been rapid and marvelous. Here came we, in our clinical years, more than anxious to enact our slight role in the perpetuation of the noble ideals of its founders. With the wealth of clinical material furnished us under the guidance of our faculty we have endeavored to acquire those principles of medicine upon which rest a lifetime of successful service. Within our sojourn, the system of teach' ing as practised by the greatest medical institutions has been instituted at the Samaritan. Without doubt, tremendous advantages have been gained by this individual clinical instruc' tion. The imposing edifices fronting Broad, Ontario, and Park Streets have contained within their walls memories which will ever be precious to us. These buildings are erected in a style which is a tribute to architectural beauty. Further additions are easily possible. Only recently the bed capacity has been increased by the Roosevelt Hospital Memorial Floor and more beds for ward patients are in the process of building. WHAT OF THE FUTURE? Indeed what is written today may be history tomorrow, for the Samaritan Hospital is in a transitional period of growth. It is keeping pace with the Greater Temple University, and with the ever-increasing demands of the community, members of the Medical School, and by the great reputation it has earned. GREATHEART MATERNITY HOSPITAL JN THE Greatheart Maternity Hospital, that broad-visioned and beloved humanitarian, Russell H. Conwell, set into existence another instrument for the administration of good to the community and service to humanity. Typical of Temple University’s history, it too, had a humble inception. It was dedicated by Dr. Conwell on April 27, 1923, consisting of thirty beds but which have since been doubled. The medical staff is composed of members of our obstetrical faculty and to them we owe our knowledge of practical obstetrics. It would not be amiss to mention the staff of graduate nurses who have always aided and encouraged us as embryo obstetricians. T irentysixThe Senior Class is assigned in rotating pairs to this hospital and live here until the quota of “baby snatching” has been accomplished. Who will ever forget the mad dashes, desha bille, up the flag walk, then the ascent of the fire escape and the final breathless spurt into the delivery room? Who, among us, will not remember those unwarranted hours spent in anxious waiting? Dare any be treacherous enough to discard the vision of that first outside call, when, with “small chaser bag” in hand, and a tumultuous heart, we beat our way through mazes of city streets in the quiet of the night? The growth of the Greatheart Maternity Hospital has keen tremendous for its brief span of existence and it is to be regretted that the demand for beds exceeds the supply. As to its future, much is expected of an institution open to all creeds and races, whose principal aim is to be of service to those with little or no means. PHILADELPHIA HOSPITAL V® HE Philadelphia General Hospital, which will celebrate its two-hundredth anni-( versary in 1931, originated in a small infirmary of the almshouse at Fourth and Pine Streets and was spoken of as “The Green Meadows”. This is the oldest hospital in the country, according to Agnew. In 1767, the institution was moved to Tenth and Pine Streets and was called the “Bettering House”. In these historic buildings many of Washington’s soldiers were cared for. The Legislature in March, 1820, authorized the purchase of a site and the erection of suitable buildings west of the Schuylkill River in Block' ley township, whence it acquired the familiar name “Blockley”. Here Rush, Band, Wistar, Gerhard and Osier labored. In 1902 three main divisions were officially recognized—a home for the indigent, a hospital for mental diseases and the general hospital proper. The adop' tion of a new city charter and the creation of the department of welfare about 1920 brought about the separation of the purely indigent patients from those who were ill. A new hos' pital for mental diseases was then erected at Byberry, and the 1400 mentally ill patients were moved there in 1926. All of this building and moving was in preparation for the rebuilding of the general hospital. The old structures at Thirty-Fourth and Pine Streets and the old stone wall which surrounded the hospital were demolished and the new hospital constructed on the site. The new hospital units are five stories high with open roofs. The new buildings add 1,250 beds. The new hospital units are five stories high with open roofs. The new buildings add 1,250 beds. The wealth of material in every line which is found here has keen the chief reason for the courtesy allowed us to hold ward walks at Blockley. As Juniors we were conducted on ward tours by Dr. Ullman and his staff of associates; and it was at old Blockley that we acquired a thorough clinical knowledge of diseases of the chest. T tcfnly-seten •V : a 3 T 'U PHILADELPHIA HOSPITAL FOR CONTAGIOUS DISEASES JT WAS here that we were introduced to the exanthemata from the clinical viewpoint. No less a personage than Dr. Samuel S. Woody, medical Director and Superintendent since 1908, conducted us on the most interesting ward tours it has been our privilege to enjoy. He explained to us the routine procedures in laryngeal diphtheria, especially illustrating the efficiency of the institution; the special “diph” ambulance which answers the call on the minute, accompanied by a doctor ready to do intubation at home if necessary. Three internes are always present in the laryngeal ward, ready to answer the bell on the run”. The present group of thirty'one separate buildings at Second and Luzerne Streets were completed in 1909. ”Mun:e” is the largest hospital for contagious diseases in the Occident and probably has more acute cases than any other such hospital in the world. It is equipped to take care of 1150 cases in event of an epidemic and yearly treats 5000 patients. EAGLEVILLE SANATORIUM ( HROUGH the courtesy of our clinical professor in diseases of the chest, Dr. A. J. I Cohen, who is also the medical director at Eagleville, we gained insight into the most modern institutional treatment of tuberculosis. We were shown the spec-cially built rooms of the new wings, the complete Xrray outfit, and the various social and edu cational units devoted to adult and child patients. The results are wonderful and this institution is doing a notable work which places it in the forefront of similar institutions in the country. § $ Iwi V TV § i T iccnly-cight Ticcniy-nineTo the Class of 1928, Temple University School of Medicine: Dr. William Osier, one of the greatest physicians of all time, once said that happiness consisted in the pursuit of an avocation which gives satisfaction to the soul. On the eve of your departure from Temple University, when you are about to engage in your career, it is my heartfelt wish that each one of you may find that he has chosen wisely, thus being able to prove the truth of Sir William's words and achieve the end which all men strive for and desire—happiness. To me it seems significant that this particular definition of happiness should have been formulated by a doctor. For if there is one profession more than any other which possesses the elements that make for satisfaction of the spirit, it is that of medicine. My own definition of success—and what is success if not happiness?—is the effective pursuit of altruism. And no field of human endeavor offers the opportunities for unselfish service to one's fellow-men than are presented by the medical profession. I feel, therefore, that it is safe to say that a busy doctor is, in truth, a happy man. As you go forth from Temple University, we who are left behind bid you Godspeed and —envy you. We envy you the tremendous chance for service which your avocation affords. I, for one, cannot conceive of a more glorious adventure than to go out into a paimridden and suffering world, fully equipped to do battle with humanity's greatest foes, disease and death. Some of you will become renowned specialists; others will aid and improve mankind by the fruits of their researches; others again will take their useful places asmuclvneeded general practitioners and surgeons. But whatever branch of the art and science of medicine you may select for your own, see to it that the world is made a better, healthier, and happier place for your presence in it. This you can do—and, I trust, you will do—by remembering that a physician's studies are never at an end and constantly keeping abreast of the times, and, above all, by never losing sight of both the professional teachings and ethical principles which the devoted faculty of Temple's School of Medicine have imparted to you and inculcated into you. In closing, permit me to recall to your minds the beautiful lines of Wordsworth which seem so particularly applicable to the rich, full life that now awaits you: "The primal ditties shme aloft—!il(e stars; The chanties that soothe and heal and bless Are scattered at the feet of Man—lil{c flowers.” Yours sincerely, Thirly-oncThirty-twoTo the Class of 1928: It affords me great pleasure to extend to you congratulations upon the termination of your academic course in medicine, and to be privileged to share with you the ecstasy incident to the receiving of your coveted degree at the commencement in June. It is generally conceded that the modern age is bending its energies toward the future, and that few persons are lured by the glamour of the past. But bear in mind that the achievements in our profession are made possible by the accomplishments of those great pioneers in medicine, who lived and died in their service to humanity, and the advance' ment of the healing art. It is a wonderful heritage of which we are justly proud, and which we must jealously guard. We revere their memories and bow in gratefulness. In looking to the future however, Minot, the eminent biologist and embryologist, said, “In the future, as medical knowledge becomes still more vast, high ability will be indis' pensable for those who try to master and apply it. No other profession is likely to equal it in difficulty ... The practitioner, no matter how much absorbed in work, must remain all his life a quick, diligent, alert, receptive learner. Never may he let himself feel a senescent apathy to new ideas. The ideal physician possesses a life-long intellectual endurance." Take this characterization and specifications of the doctor, and humanize his science and art, and add an imaginative vision into the deeper things of life, and you have the medical type at its best. This I wish to each of you. Faithfully yours. . M.D., F.A.C.S., Dean, School of Medicine.

Fifty-threeTHE PHYSICIAN HERE arc men and classes of men that ( O stand above the common herd ... the physician almost as a rule. He is the flower (such as it is) of our civilization; and when that stage of man is done with, and only remembered to be marvelled at in history, he will be thought to have shared as little as any in the defects of the period, and most notably exhibited the virtues of the race. Generosity he has, such as is possible to those who practice an art, never to those who drive a trade; discretion, tested by a hundred secrets; tact, tried in a thousand embarrassments; and what is more important, Herculean cheerfulness and courage. So it is that he brings air and cheer into the sick room, and often enough, though not so often as he wishes, brings healing. Robert Louis Stevenson.

In other words in the same language, we must tell the strabismic world all about us. It is a merry tale with here and there that somber ally of merriment—tragedy. We are not the customary Greeks of mythological wanderings, nor are we “weary wayfarers passing down our stalf of knowledge to oncoming classes.” Nor yet are we “voyageurs on a stately ship sailing tern' pestuous seas.” (Have you ever had mal-de-mer, gentle reader?) Let us, to use the modern phrase, just "be ourselves”. There was a popular song in the days of the late war, part of which was “It's up to you what will you do?” That, gentle reader and men of medicine, sums up the challenge of modern medicine to the young aspirant to the Hippocratic oath today. Thus graduating classes have nothing to bequeath to their successors except the twin spirits of perseverance and hard work. The love of a Temple man for his Alma Mater, gentlemen, is something that is intravascular,—know what I mean? “And so to our story" as was frequently remarked by the late Pepys. In September, 1924, we matriculated 60 strong (weak, and what have you?). Fellows, doesn't it seem like yesterday? Remember your first day in the dissecting room when you nervously tried to reflect the skin on a cadaver, with the back of your scalpel, and the demonstrator almost had to tie your forceps in your other hand, you shook so terribly? You cogitated that maybe your aunt “back home” was right about “medicine being such a harsh thing for young men to study.” (You know now, she was wrong.) Then our handling of the slides in Dr. Fanz' laboratory, when you saw the label your pulse became weak and stringy, your tongue was dry and you looked tenderly at the bottles of germicidal agents. Then you dropped your slide like a hot coal, on the stage of your 'scope, and you were a’most afraid to look at it, but time gave us courage. Dr. Saylor kept us busy with Kjeldahl flasks, sugar protein and fat analysis, "unknowns” and “high flame cautions”, and we surely knew our chemistry when our course was through. Then the Soph dance in our honor, at Hotel Majestic. (Didn't she look swell, that night, and just a bit proud when someone called you Doctor—know what I mean?) Our first introduction to our physical means of combatting disease conditions, with his genial common-sense lectures in Materia Medica, was Dr. Scheele with a demonstration of the drugs themselves. Then came the tragedy—the death of our professor of Anatomy, Dr. D. Gregg Metheny. His departure was solely physical, as his spirit remains as his memorial in the hearts of his students. In his death. Medicine lost a keen mind, the students a splendid teacher and friend, and the world at large, a true gentleman. In any difficulties, there was always that “court of appeals”—who met you in the corridors or classrooms with a genial smile and an arm on your shoulder with “How are things going, fellow?” That was “Parky” (Dr. Parkinson, our associate dean). He would always see both sides of a question, and if you caught h—, you knew you deserved it, because "Parky” Fifty-serenwas only with you when you were right. Ill health compelled him to leave for sunny Florida, which departure was our keen loss. Dr. Frank H. Krusen, his successor, by his jovial good nature and sterling qualities soon became endeared to all of his students. Dr. John Roxby became our new Professor of Anatomy, and his excellent teaching was only equalled by his gentle manners. He proved himself a very active part of the juggernaut that has constantly been pushing T. U. M. C. forward. That longdooked'for vacation rolled swiftly by and we were back for our Sophomore year. It was a splendid and greatly beneficial year as all years are at Temple University. Don't you remember Dr. Sajous and his herd (or is it flock) of trained rabbits who reacted, but refused to die, from the action of any drug. Then those slippery frogs in physiology lab, which when you tried to pith them would make a leap for life and the hunt was on, under and between desks, finally you caught him, only to find that you had caught your neighbor's from the desk opposite, and that your partner had your frog safely under a glass jar on your desk. Then the smoking room, (for drums only)—and "last man out puts away the shellac." We, as lordly Sophomores welcomed the Freshman class with a reception and dance, and gave them the advice which has been customary for ages for a sophomore to give a freshman. Those hours in the dissecting room with the brains, when the subtle remark was made that "you had more brains in your hands than you had in your head." Final exams kept us very much worried and a lot more studious—and finally the blissful vacation. Then began our clinical years, when we moved up to the Samaritan Hospital for our Junior year. Here we saw what before was only theory to us. Seeing the actual application of what we had been taught in the previous two years, was an inspiring revelation too. Our Saturday afternoons at post mortems were well spent but at a tremendous sacrifice, as foot' ball season was a total loss for us this year, but our pathology was very much vice versa. Drs. Fanz and Gault saw to that. The "oral” at the end of the year was looked forward to with the same joy and longing as a prisoner awaiting execution. Then our Wednesday afternoon clinics and ward walks in Philadelphia General Hospital in the Tuberculosis depart' ments. We saw 12,392,791 clubbed finger nails, and our eyes became strabismic from watch' ing T. P. R. curves on all those charts, but we surely learned Tuberculosis. This year marked our personal introductions to Dr. Morgan. When he quizzed you, you either knew it, or wished—oh, how sincerely you did wish, that you knew the answer. Your tongue adhered to your palate, your voice was weak, and your brain as unresponsive as a cold Ford motor. We surely did burn the welbknown Mazdas over our Therapeutics, and the dust that accumulated on our textbooks was only idiomatic. They were too fre' quently agitated for that. The “Whys", "Why nots", and dosage of drugs became second nature to us. If you do not know the reason, then, my friend, you have missed the privilege of knowing Dr. A. C. Morgan. We met that surgical genius, Dr. Wayne Babcock, our Professor of Surgery this year. Fifty-eightWe not only profited greatly but enjoyed his splendid lectures. Temple Medical College can only equal the pride of its students in being so fortunate as to have a man of Dr. Bab-cock's calibre as Professor of Surgery. A new idea originated this year by our class was the first Annual Skull Dance. At this affair given by the Junior Class in honor of the graduating class, the dedicatee of the Skull is announced formally. The dance proved itself a splendid success, and it is our sincere wish that succeeding classes shall continue to "carry on" the Annual Skull Dance. Then, when Dr. Frank Hammond, our Dean, addressed us as "Gentlemen of the Senior Class," admit it, fellow, you did have a flare of pride, that was justifiable,—pride of achieve' ment always is justifiable. We realized we were now on the home stretch, and it gave us an added impetus toward our goal. This year we were brought into closer contact with our Professor of Medicine, Dr. Robertson, who constantly gave us food for introspection in his excellent lectures. He always impressed us that Medicine expected a great deal from its "young blood". Dr. Mills through his splendid lectures and clinics, gave us the realization of the fact that babies were vastly more than little pudgy rascals who woke their parents at night or pieces de resistance for fond relatives to squabble over regarding parental resemblances, when the infant is one week old. We were impressed with the feeding, clothing, bathing, psy' chology and care of infants in a most worthwhile manner. Responsibility made itself manifest in a most poignant manner when we undertook our Greatheart Service. It was here for the first time, we were faced by the cold facts, that shall be part of our life work. We shall never forget our first Ob. case. It was a challenge to our knowledge and skill and due to the teaching of our Professor of Obstetrics, Dr. Arnold, we came out with flying colors. This year was largely clinical, and things were brought out to us so vividly in clinics that it is knowledge that remains indelible. The adoption of the new system of clinical conduction was greatly to our benefit and deeply appreciated by us. It is just the high lights of our class history that we have dwelt on, to record it all would be a very long task. In these the closing pages of our history, we can only say that “when better medical graduates are graduated, then Temple shall graduate them." If we preserve through our medical careers the ideals that our most worthy faculty have inculcated in us, then their labors shall not have been in vain. "It's up to you, what will you do?" J. M. H.

Steel of the Surgery Staff, met and organized the W. Wayne Babcock Surgical Society. Dr. Steel was elected the first President. The following student officers were also elected: M. A. Manning, Vice-President; Jules Prevost, Secretary; H. W. Boehringer, Treasurer. The purpose of the Society is to stimulate the student's interest in the fundamentals and application of surgery and to keep abreast of the rapid advancement of this branch of science. Membership is by election and restricted to thirty, of which there are fifteen Seniors, ten Juniors, and five Sophomores. Every student having a fair scholastic average is eligible to membership. Several meetings are held each year. The final meeting is usually in the form of a banquet and business meeting together. Last year the big affair was held at the Penn Athletic Club, at which time officers were elected for the ensuing year. Addresses were made by the Honorary President, Dr. W. Wayne Babcock, and other prominent members of the Surgical Staff. The final meeting and dinner program is always looked forward to with keen anticipation by all of the members. The food is the least of the treat that awaits one at this annual affair, for the speeches are even more toothsome. R. M. L. One hundred onemmm OFFICERS J. O. Arnold, M.D., F.A.C.S.... Charles R.

It was through the efforts of our honorary president, D. J. O. Arnold, Professor of Obstetrics, that the Society was organized as a tribute to the late Dr. John C. Applegate who was at that time Professor of Obstetrics. The object of the Society is to stimulate in the Medical Student the desire for knowledge, and to create in him a hope which will carry him to new and greater discoveries. The program this year has dealt with the lives of great men in Medicine and their contributions to Obstetrics. Among those discussed were, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ignaz Philip Semmelweis, Peter Chamberlen, Carl S. F. Crede, Louis Pasteur, Lister, Simpson, Gwathmey, Ballantyne, Bell, Potter, and Stroganoff. All papers prepared are being filed and it is the hope that in a few years the organization will have a record library that can be referred to by Doctors and students. In December the Society members spent a very enjoyable and interesting time at the home of the Honorary President. Stereoptican slides of many of the fathers of Medicine, and of the period in which they lived were shown, and brief histories given of each man. The organization will close a very successful year with its annual banquet to be held May 5th, to the Honorary President and distinguished guests F. L. S. One hundred threeOFFICERS H.

Brooker Mills Society was organized November 18,1916, when I O a number of the students of the School of Medicine of Temple Uni' versity met in the library of the Professional Schools. This group came together to form an organization for the further study of Pediatrics conv bining research work and didactic work with the clinical work at hand. No difficulty was experienced in selecting a name for the society, it being named in honor of the then and present honorary president, H. Brooker Mills. The charter members numbered seventeen and drew up a constitution limiting membership to fifty. Meetings were to be held once a month with various members reading papers which were later discussed by the Society at large. The original constitution still governs the Society and an outstanding feature is the presentation of a diploma, from the Society to its graduating members. The first meeting was held Friday evening, November 18. 1916, and the Society has met every month since, during the school year. The March meet' ing is always addressed by a prominent physician and for the last few years. Doctor William Wadsworth,Coroner's Physician of Philadelphia, has officiated. A notable feature of the social side is the combined meeting with the Undergraduate Obstetrical Society and in addition this year, the newly formed Strickler Dermatological Society. In April of each year, the annual banquet is held, on or as near as possible, the birthday of our honorary president. On this occasion alumni members from all over gather to wish Professor Mills felicitations and to take part in the discussions which follow. Dr. Frank C. Hammond, Dean of the Medical School, acts as toastmaster and an enjoyable evening is spent by all. The Society wishes to express its appreciaton of the interest shown it by Dr. W. Wadsworth, Dr. Frank C. Hammond and to Professor H. Brooker Mills, its honorary president. E. J. L. m One hundred fiveJ. GARRETT HICKEY PHISOLOGICAL SOCIETY OFFICERS J.

Chance.....................................................Historian One hundred s xHISTORY HE Hickey Physiological Society was organized October 1923, by a group ( H of members of the sophomore class. The Society was named in honor of the professor of Physiology, and elected him its honorary president. From that time until the present the Society has been supported to such an extent by students, faculty, and alumni, that it is now the largest Society at Temple University School of Medicine. The outstanding feature of the Society is its simplicity of association and function. It is not so rigidly scientific as to eliminate laymen, nor is it founded on such principles as will bar any undergraduate or student who is desirous of joining. Such outstanding leaders of modern medicine as Dr. William Hughes, Dr. H. L. Bockus, Dr. John B. Roxby, Dr. Chevalier Jackson, and Dr. J. Kennedy who have sensed the decided friendly and informal phases of our Society, have often graced our meetings. At the meetings which are held once a month, papers are read by the students. These treatises are, of course, akin to the general lecture topic of the evening, and have much interesting data, compiled from the students' thoughts and observations for the most part, rather than from textbooks. For the brave showing at the initial meeting of the 1927T928 session, and for the equalled attendance at all other meetings we select at this time to thank student body, friends, and those prominent medical men who have so bountifully shared their time—precious to them and to the Society. Our Society having reached such a splendid academic foundation and hav ing advanced so phenomenally, we have only a hint as to what a firm apex of asso ciation and connotation this Society will and shall possess. We shall surely have time in the not faroff professional life, in which we are about to enter, to think of the helpful, suggestive and pleasant integral parts of school life; at such a time we shall think of this our Society.

Mendell.............................................Secretary Samuel S. Lipschutz.............................................Treasurer One hundred eightHISTORY 1=1 HE Robertson Honorary Medical Society views with great pride its achieve I ments during the past year. Organized in April. 1927, to foster a giowing need felt lacking by the students of Temple University, namely a Society which had for its purpose the search for knowledge and truth other than that confined to textbooks but to be attained from individual research work and extensive collateral readings, the Robertson Society terminates its initial year of existence having made considerable advances toward its aims. During this year the programme consisted of a comprehensive study of the Biliary System. Members worked in groups of fours and presented treatises on every aspect of the Liver, Gall Bladder, and Biliary Ducts giving the Society the benefits of their collateral readings, experimental work and studies of the charts of the Samaritan Hos pital. To sum up the year's work. Dr. Joseph Sailer, Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, was invited as guest speaker and his address proved most profitable and instructive to the members of the Society. To stimulate the members into attacking medical problems which involved original research effort; to begin such endeavor while still in student days; to learn how to read medical literature in an interpretative fashion; to maintain a scientific interest in medicine throughout undergraduate and graduate life; to apply vision and imagination to current discoveries; these were some of the ideals laid before the Society by Profes sor Robertson. That these aims are partially being realized is shown by the high type of meetings and programmes offered during the year so that today the Robertson Hon orary Medical Society occupies a position of prominence in the life of our Medical School. Its name is synonymous with scholarship, hard work, and a pursuit of know! edge. To enter its fold has become the ambition of every medical student, and such honor is conferred only upon those who rank highest in their classes in scholastic attainments. In conclusion the Society takes this opportunity to thank Dr. Robertson and the Medical Stiff for their guidance and assistance in making this year the success it has been. T. H. M.

We are taught to be general practitioners, and to pursue our calling in the rural districts, where the “Country Doctor” is needed. The cry for the specialist, however, is a Iso urgent. Medical men realize that, due to the numerous advances in medical knowledge, and because of the vastness of the study, no one human mind can encompass all the knowledge. They have thus set about to encourage men in the specialization of various branches of medicine. Among these branches. Dermatology has recently come to the fore. With the purpose of advancing their knowledge in this specialty, a group of twenty young men, senior and junior medical students of Temple University, gathered at the Samar' itan Hospital, on October 25, 1927- It was unanimously adopted that a permanent organ' ization be formed for the mutual advancement of, and the profitable pursuit in, the knowledge of Dermatology. It was further decided that the name of this organization shall be the Strickler Dermatological Society, in honor of Doctor Albert Strickler, our worthy professor of Dermatology and Syphilology. The Society will have a wonderful opportunity to come in contact with dermatologic cases, through the courtesy of Dr. Strickler, chief medical director of the newly formed Skin and Cancer Hospital of Philadelphia. This is a new departure along medical lines in our city, and it is most fortunate, indeed, that the members of the Strickler Dermatological Society will have access to it. In this institution the laboratories, in conjunction with the vast clinical material, will offer the best opportunities for progressive development in the treatment of diseases of the skin. During the year 1927T928, the Society has had several very successful meetings. Worthy papers by members, and clinical discussions by Dr. Strickler and his staff, have added much to our knowledge of skin diseases. Interesting meetings were also held in conjunction with the Mills Pediatric and Undergraduate Obstetric Societies, at which topics were dis' cussed relevant to each specialty. N. M. S.

Those lips devoid of flesh, those caverns void of eyes, Have known the kiss of love, the glance of glad surprise. All nature is the same. The skull of bone retained The thoughts, the acts and deeds the same as ours contained, It lived, it loved, it died; its course of life was run. When life was at its noontide, he laid his burden down. The summer's stifling heat, the winter's chilling blast. Unheeded pass thee by. Time is, time was, time past. The dark reports of war, the plague spot's deadly breath. Thou calmly look upon, thou hollow sphere of death. These busy thoughts of ours shall likewise go. The bounding pulse of health, or by old age made slow Shall like a wornout clock, run for a time and stop— The judge upon the bench, the workman from the shop. Death knows no person.

Young .................................................Secretary Isaac Blumstein............................................... Treasurer Eighty, eightHISTORY HREE years ago we entered upon our medical careers with the feeling that we had I already traversed one-fourth the distance to that much coveted degree. Three-score strong we timidly yet bravely presented ourselves in the halls of the medical building, little knowing the stormy road that lay ahead. Our professors soon dispelled any ideas or thoughts of indolence and heaped upon us what seemed at the time unsurmountablc tasks and assignments. Our feeble memories were taxed to the limit and it is still a mystery to us that they withstood the onslaught. We learned and forgot, relearned and reforgot, but gradually a scant glimmering of knowledge remained. At times we felt that we knew much but an unlooked-for quiz served to set us right upon that false idea. Several interclass dances of the Freshmen and Sophomores, then the Christmas vacation served to break the monotony of the grind. Easter was soon upon us then the dreaded finals loomed upon the horizon. More than ever was real studying necessary, for a much greater obstacle faced us than in previous years before we would be permitted to march ahead, to our second year. Fate was kind to most of us and September found us again assembled, as Sophomores this time. The wiser heads sounded the warning that this year would be tougher and harder than the first one. We hardly believed that such could be possible but determined that what had been done by others could be done by us. By this time a few in the class had earned the distinction and reputation of being prophets, and they were always consulted as to the possibility of “exams", but as a rule their predictions did not materialize. Late November found us digging deep for funds to entertain the Freshmen who were our guests at a dance, well attended by the classes and Faculty alike. Christmas vacation, mid-year exams, another interclass dance, and the remaining part of the year rolled on. Finals again! Then the anxiety until reports came, and what a load off our minds to know all was well. September arrived with great anticipation. To the Samaritan Hospital we came! What a great day for us! New faces greeted us, clinical cases were ours to work upon, examinations upon patients were done, the giving of anesthesia, assisting at operations, ward walks, dispensary work, obstetrical cases, and much more that made us feel that maybe some day we might become doctors. How great and grand we felt—at least until some chief would go over our findings and diagnoses, then we would have been glad to fall through the floor. During the late winter and early spring season our thoughts turned toward the all important social event of the entire Medical School given by the Junior Class—namely the Skull Dance. The Seniors were guests of honor and were feted before the faculty and alumni as such dignitaries should be. It was a great success and will be remembered for a long time by all those present. The finals once more face us—more numerous, more dangerous, more difficult than ever. Shall we be Seniors? The Faculty alone knows. B. R. Y.

We recall that it was his father-in-law, the noted Edinburgh surgeon, James Syme, who advised young Lister not to take up surgery. "Surgery," said Syme, “is a field already so fully developed thatitoffers little outlook for an ambitious youth. Therefore, my son, select some other branch of medicine for your life work.” Thus, Syme proved that while he could invent a good lithotomy staff and a useful amputation, he was not a very canny Scot at medical prophecy. The year 1928 dawns bright for Temple. With the promise of new buildings and a great Medical School one has no reason to repeat the advice given by Syme. The door opened by Lister gives access to a thousand medical problems, and the solving of one of them may carry a blessing ages after our new buildings crumble and present endowments have been dissipated. That some of you by thoughtful diligence, by self-sacrifice, or a stroke of genius may so carry your Alma Mater to the enduring heights is the wish of - (7 0 THE Class of '28: I j This is an epoch in the lives of the members of the graduating class of 1928. By whatever various, and doubtless in some instances, devious routes, the individual has approached his present position, all the lines are symptotic; they converge to a common line. This is true however for relatively a brief period, though years have been required in the making of this confluence. Henceforth your lines of activity will be asymptotic. I wish it were possible to sit down with each one of you, individually, in order to learn why you have chosen the practice of medicine as your life work. So many avenues of endeavor offer greater emolument, with less preparation and less intensive and continuous effort, that in most instances it seems probable that you were motivated by some particular factor. To learn just what this factor was would be intensely and humanly interesting, for some of you have no doubt made great sacrifices to attain your goal. Having achieved the object of your labors, what are you going to do with it? Here enters the personal equation. This element, coupled with opportunity, the latter rarely created, but, as a rule, more or less an accidental happening, constitute the determinants responsible for the deviation of lines of activity previously referred to. The medical profession has been too exclusive hitherto, in arrogating to itself, without qualification, the thought that service is the beacon which furnishes the urge. What commercial enterprise could succeed without having service One hundre 1 tu'Cnty-xixas its goal? This is well illustrated in the address delivered by Irving Longmuir when he received the Perkin medal recently. His researches, at first along the lines of pure science, led ultimately to the development of more definite knowledge of the factors concerned in the production of the incandescent lamp. All research work performed by the pure scientist has as its sole aim the search for truth. He hopes to discover explanations for known phe-nomena, basic, incontrovertible facts. Practical applications seldom concern the pure scientist. It is a curious fact however, that the practical man, ever on the alert, is always casting about for new ideas and new work which he may be able to apply. For instance, imaginary numbers, the creation of the pure mathematician, were for some time of no applicable value. Then, suddenly, as it were, they were seized upon by the electro-physicist and put to practical use in calculations. So too, in medicine. The physiologist is the medical scientist. He is more concerned with the discovery of principles than he is with their application. The practising doctor is the practical man who is on the alert for new applications. Don-nan's equilibrium, membrane potentials, acidosis, among many other phenomena, represent applied science, having begun as pure laboratory studies. This manifestly requires a better training in biology, and the mathematical and physical sciences today, than was necessary for the doctor of a generation or two ago. This alone does not constitute a doctor however. Herein lies the qualification of his service. His is a life of more continuous endeavor than that of any other vocation. No opening or closing hours, no eight-hour day, no part of the day which he may claim as his own. He is entrusted with the most intimate secrets. He carries the lives of many in his hands. There is a species of soulfulness in his work at all times. The railroad engineer, the captain of a great liner, the motorman, indeed many others are responsible for the lives entrusted to their care, but we do not feel toward them as we do to the doctor. What is it then that places him in a class apart? It is in part due to his privilege of sharing intimately the lives of those who trust him, and especially because he may be able to stand between them and that mystery we call death. This should never be lost sight of by the doctor. The whole profession suffers when a doctor fails to live up to the moral and ethical standards expected of him. This constitutes the personal equation. Unfortunately, education does not necessarily increase our moral or ethical sense. Gentlemen of the graduating class, as you cast off into seas, as yet uncharted for you, the best I can wish for you is, that you may so fortify yourselves by reading and observation, that you may at all times be prepared for any emergency. But even more I wish for you and for the institution which your represent, that is, that your ideals may always be lofty ones. “—to thine ownself be true; And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.” One hundred Iwenfy-serenTo the Class of '28: No error is more fatal to the young physician than the notion that with the passing of undergraduate days his period of study is over and that in the future he has only to act. The rendering of intelligent service to mankind necessitates not only thoughtful reading of current literature but likewise repeated reference to fundamentals. Healthful exercise of the mind is just as important in maintaining acuity of the powers of observation, correlation, deduction and judgment as is functional activity of bodily organs in keeping up their efficiency. However, one striking difference exists between structural and intellectual development: the former is limited as to quantity and time of life; whereas potentiality for greater and greater mental activity may exist long after the onset of that period of existence when we may consider ourselves fortunate if the forces of organic disintegration and repair manage to balance. If your teachers have succeeded in training you to think logically and methodically they have rendered a service which equals, if indeed does not exceed in value, the mere presenta' tion of more or less concrete information. Accept my hearty congratulations and best wishes. HERE’S TO THE SKULL-IANS! JN THESE Lindbergh days of glorious heroism filling the earth and sea and sky; when men literally fly into immortal fame overnight—if they do not fly into the bottom of the seal—when our imaginations have come by sheer force of habit to expect a new thrill as we expect a new day, and when even the friends of Temple University are no longer astonished at the daily announcements of magnificent gifts, and growths, and great deeds done—in these later, larger days, may it not be well at times, “lest we forget," to recall the days of small beginnings? The days of lonely struggles, and faltering hopes, and unromantic hardships? May we not need to be again reminded that “the heroism of the commonplace is often greater than the heroism of the Crisis”, and that the unnamed if not entirely unknown build' ers of the past, were none the less heroic, because unmentioned and unsung? Not long ago a casual item in the daily press told of the death of one of the first graduates of Temple Medical School. Few in the school today ever heard his name, or ever knew of One hundred twenty-eighthis heroic fight as a “moonlight medical matriculate". And still more recently the papers chronicled the death of one of the school's first faculty members, whilst not one in a hundred of the thousands now profiting by the heritage he helped to bequeath, ever noted his passing, or paused to pay the tribute his one-time courageous efforts earned. Perhaps it is but natural, and therefore but right, that in these history making times we should thus lightly look toward the past, and but dimly see the heroes of yesterday in the overshadowing light of today, for after all, it is not the past, nor even the present, that holds the keenest interest and the highest values for modern Templars. There is an unexplored and ever-enlarging future that beckons on to boundless realms of bigger things. “Go West, young man—grow up with the West" was not merely a bit of timely advice for a former generation, but the expression of a great abiding principle, so inherently and characteristically American, that these once famous words may well be translated into the language of every great growing institution in the land. You who constitute so important, if not so large a part of the student body of this most American of American universities, have interpreted Horace Greely's message to mean: “Go to Temple young man—young woman—grow up with Temple University"—grow up with your eyes on the future, and not the past; grow up with venture and vision, and the inspiring pleasure of pursuit, rather than the selFsatisfying complacency of possession; grow up with opportunity; with unlimited possibilities; with everything to attain, and with the supreme satisfaction that you are helping to attain it. Grow, and rejoice as you grow, for yours shall be the enviable privilege of turning dreams into visions, and visions into glorious realities. So here's to the Skulhians of today, and the days to come! May yours be the real joy of living, as you grow up in this great modern Garden of the Gods, whose welcoming portals are the veritable Gates of the Temple; whose invigorating atmosphere is abundant Beury'borne enthusiasm; and whose beneficent sunshine is the ever' broadening benediction of the immortal Founder.

The Story op Horace Mann The story is told of Horace Mann, that one evening as he sat in his study an insane man rushed into the room and challenged him to a fight. Mr. Mann replied: "My dear fellow, it would give me great pleasure to accommodate, but I can't do it, the odds are so unfair. I am a Mann by name, and a man by nature, two against one! It would never do to fight." The insane man answered: “Come ahead, I am a man beside myself, let us four have a fight."

The friend said “Can you imagine anything worse than having diphtheria and scarlet fever at the same time?" “Yes,” replied Mark “I can easily imagine some things worse than that—for instance, rheumatism and St. Vitus' dance.” An old countrywoman stepped into a suburban drugstore and laid on the counter a prescription for a mixture containing two decigrammes of morphia. The druggist exercised the utmost care in weighing the dangerous drug. “What a shame!” she cried. “Don't be so stingy; it's for an orphan girl." Can it be rightly said that a man is “stork mad” because he is the father of eleven chib dren? Reducing Doctor—“Of course, you may adhere to a fairly full diet. I should suggest 6sh, beef or mutton, with potatoes and greens, and some nutritious suet puddings.” Heavy Eater- “Should I take those things before or after meals, doctor?" Suburban Patient— “Doctor, 1 am sorry you have had to come so far from your regular practice." Doctor—“Oh, it’s all right, 1 have another patient in the neighborhood, so I can kill two birds with one stone.” “My dear, we've simply got to change our family doctor. He's so absent-minded.

Boy—“Please, miss, the doctor brought me a new little sister this morning." Teacher (absent-mindedly)—“Very good. Now go to your seat and don't let it happen again." A young doctor posted a notice on his front door, “Will be back at 2 o'clock." When he returned some wag had written under the notice, "What for?" Doctor—“Have you taken the medicine as I instructed?” Patient “Well, doctor, 1 may be behind with the pills, but I'm six weeks ahead with the whiskey." One hundred thirty-threeDELTA PI DEMENTIA PARANOIDES SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY SOME time ago a group of students were discussing the undergraduate societies then in existence. They were not members of any of these societies. So you, our dear readers, can just imagine what they said! (We blush profusely.) The lack of a real scientific society was recognized. Such a society as would have for its object a preparation of papers on any and all scientific lines was thought to be an intensely valuable adjunct to student's “extra-curricular activities". With this view in mind the Delta Pi (Dementia Paranoides) Scientific Society was formed in the room opposite the library entrance. Oh, what a memorable day! Major was using one of the enclosures, and the meeting did not last long. However, since its inception the society has held numerous meetings on the Fire Escape, McGee's, Fischer's, The Trocadero, and numerous other places. (For addresses of these “other places” send a self-addressed envelope and $1.25 to our secretary.) In addition such a society should have for its adviser a counsellor, a man fitted to direct the efforts of the students. Such a man is Dr. Hugo Simplepoofle, M.A., L.O.A., of Leipzig. The work of Dr. Simplepoofle (or “Simple” as the dear old man is affectionately called by his associates) in the “Dichtung und Wahrheit” is notoriously known. For his untiring efforts and help we cannot thank Dr. Simplepoofle too much—if at all.

SIMPLEPOOFLE (Delivered before the Dementia Paranoides Society) Gentlemen, this day marks the beginning of a new era in the scientific world. The work which you have undertaken and outlined for yourselves will probably revolutionize every' thing, or almost everything, Quien sabe? (That's Spanish for something or other.) Some day one of your number may sue-ceed in doing that which has puzzled scientists for centuries— that is, teaching the women in this country not to squeeze their toothpaste tubes in the middle. Or better yet, one of you may even learn to work an infant-feeding problem! Think of that, gentlemen! |[Not now—later—when you get home.] Now, I shall give you a few words of practical advice, for after all, it is the practical things that make this world go round. You must, at all times, use your "horse sense". To illustrate. Only yesterday a man walked into my office (it was by mistake, for the man was very near-sighted), and after seeing me, tried to sell me some buttercups. "Some buttercups, Doctor?" he said, smiling. “When you say that, smile," I replied and from the way I said that, he knew that I meant what I said. Now that man went about his job the wrong way. Most of us go about our jobs the wrong way. We medical men sometimes forget our patient. They say that an elephant never forgets. Did you ever hear of an elephant failing in medicine? Elephants never forget, and daisies won’t tell. Two things that you men, who are soon to go out to take your places in the medical world, might well take to heart. Supposing Hippocrates had forgotten the patient. The great old scout was above else, a Greek. He knew the rate of exchange and he also knew that you cannot drive a nail in the wall with a sponge, no matter how long you soak it. Hippocrates was no elephant. Neither was he a daisy. And yet Hippocrates will be remembered when the classification of the Saebaromycetidae will be forgotten. One hundred Ihirly-ficcfn r I ft The other day I met an old schoolmate. He was crying. “Well old'timer,” I said, “what’s that you've got in your hand?" "My other hand," he replied, shaking it. Now the reason my old schoolmate hadn't made good was that he kept one hand inside the other—in this manner. No antiseptics, no sterile gloves, none of our scientific improve' ments. So you see why he didn't feel very "Vive la France"—if you get what I mean. On the street in which I live there has never been a good doctor. Recently a graduate of our own school moved in. He made good! Why? Because he had a wonderful power of observation. There is a line of trees on this street. They are fine, big trees, full of twigs and branches, all except one. This one tree has no twigs or branches. It hasn't even any leaves. It just stands there. But nobody ever wondered why. This new doctor did. He was determined to see what was wrong with that tree. He was really scientific—he wanted to know why, in a line of fine strong trees, there should be one weak one. He sus' pected that it wasn't playing the game right. So he went close to it and examined it thor' oughly. It wasn't a tree at all. It was a Irydrant. Watch out that you aren't a hydrant in a line of trees. Or worse yet, a line of trees in a hydrant!

One hundred thirty-sixMedical Ignorance Among the papers of R. H. Stoddard that Ripley Hitchcock edited, there is a letter which Oliver Wendell Holmes, the poet physician, is said to have received. This letter was written, many years ago, by an ignorant country practitioner, and it is interesting because it shows the low level to which, in the early part of the last century, it was possible for medical education to fall. The letter, verbatim, follows: "Dear dock I have a pashunt whos physicol sines shoze that the winpipe is ulcerated of and his lung hav dropped into his stummick. He is unable to swaller and I fear his stumick toobe is gone. I have giv him everything without efeck his Father is wealthy honorable and intluenshul. He is an active member of the M. E. church and God noes I don't want to loose him wot shall I do?” A Foregone Conclusion Young Doctor- -"Well, I've got a case at last." Young Lawyer—"Glad to hear it. When you get him to the point where he wants a will drawn, telephone over." A Clever Diagnosis Wife (to sick husband)—"The doctor says your system needs a stimulant and has pre scribed whiskey." Patient (eagerly)—"That physician has diagnosed my case correctly; he know his busi' ness. When are we to begin?" Wife—"Right away. You are to take half a teaspoonful after each meal." The King's Disease "Young Doctor Doce has struck it rich at last." “How?" “He refused to treat anything but perityphlitis." Blind Inference Doctor—"Thomas, did Mrs. Popjoy get the medicine I ordered yesterday?" Thomas—"I b'leeve so, sir; I see all the blinds down this morning." No Doubt of It Professor (to class in surgery) -“The right leg of the patient, as you see, is shorter than the left, and in consequence of which he limps. Now, what would you do in a case of this kind?" Bright Student “Limp too.” One hundred thirty-sevenRosJ-Yfolcofl8 -Webs Beadle- D via. One hundred Ihirly-cigftlHOW MUCH DOES A TURCK IRRITATION CELL JUMP? (7° HE wonders of the Tiirck Irritation Cells, and of the thousands of other cells which ( n we now know fill the blood stream, were never more clearly demonstrated than they have been by the recently devised “Stroboscope", an invention by Dr. Lieber-cranz O'Toole, by means of which we are able to measure cell jumps. It was not known until recently that a Tiirck cell jumped at all when irritated. It was not until two years ago when Dr. O'Toole began his experiments with gin and absinthe that this phenomenon was observed. One morning, after having been up all night in the labora' tory, Dr. O’Toole looked into his microscope and, among other things, saw the Tiirck cells jump. Some of them seemed enormous in size and appeared to be crouching as if ready to leap right at our dear Doctor. This terrified him so much that he jumped up with a cry and ran out shouting—“Take them off! Take them off!" Next day after due meditation and deliberation, he tried to explain his great discovery to his wife. But she, as well as other sceptical people, said that the Doctor must have been ill or something like that. This is what people thought and said when Dr. O'Toole began his researches on the subject. A lot of them still say it. But Dr. O'Toole was not discouraged. He got out an old oblong box, and somewhere found a cover for it. Into this box he put his lunch. Then he went up to his laboratory and sat. When he came out he had worked out a device for measuring cell jumps, the Stro' boscope (patent applied for). The principle of the Stroboscope is that of the steam engine, except that it has no whistle. It is based on the fact that the blood cell is biconcave at the center and biconvex at the peri' phery. Now, when it gets ready to jump it carefully measures out its “takeoff", marking the spot with a piece of white paper or a sweater, straightens out to get its balance, and sprints down the lane, and jumps. Thus when it jumps, the movement, however slight, will be registered on the Stroboscope by the ringing of a tiny bell, as any movement starts up a vibration which will strike the sensitized plate at the top of the instrument and will break it. As it breaks the bell rings. Thus the observer will know that the cell has jumped. The distance it jumps is measured by the regulation A. A. U. metal tape measure. In the near future a tournament will be held at which time Tiirck Cells that will repre' sent America in the 1928 Olympics will be chosen. “Boneset” (As described by a medical student) I think that Boneset is some form of compound which when placed around the affected bone causes a stimulation of the boneTorming elements and callous formation is stimulated and the bone thus becomes fixed at the fractured region.

So I spits upon me hapron and washes it away. That done it!!! Matron carried on for 'alf an hour or so If Sister 'adn't begged me orf, I guess I'd 'ad to go.

(The Bloodless Plebotomist) One hundred forty-threeTHE BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD They may talk of the brain and point with pride To its arching dome and its basis wide; To its cortical cells and ganglia deep, And the treasures of thought its chambers keep, To the wonders which eye and ear enthrall, But the spinal cord surpasses them all. For the eye will close, and the brain will tire; And our thought in its very source expire; While the lordly brow, the lowered crest. Seeks the downy pillow in needed rest, But the sentinel cord its vigil keeps, For “the spinal system never sleeps.” The brain may suffice for our waking hours, When the mind controls its wayward powers, 'Tis by it we laugh and by it we weep. It leaves us to die when it goes to sleep; But the tireless cord with a ceaseless play Is wakeful and active both night and day. When the powers of life seem about to yield, The brain is the first to resign the field; But the spinal cord holds out to the Last, And it often conquers when hope is past, Survives the weak maunderings of the brain, And ushers us back to the world again. Then here is a toast I would have you hail, The spinal cord from the bulb to the tail, You surely must honor the famous spot Where Flourens located, “the vital knot”. The cord! the cord! with its mysteries deep, Which the pyramids guard and the ganglia keep. The first to grow, the last to fail, The spinal cord from the bulb to the tail.

Treasurer Xinely-hcoHISTORY "As the Tree is Bent so shall it Grow" SINCE the word “Sophomore” is the Greek word for “know nothing” it is with appropriate arrogance that we write our history in the form of an apology. Overjoyed with the knowledge of our acceptance to the Medical Department of Temple University, eager to make friends, but still scrupulous as to whom they may be, we were advised, instructed and coerced in the secrets of Esculapius. Then too, we were extended invitations to “smokers”, lectures, dances and exams. And so we passed our first year in such a whirlwind of systematic pleasure, that we are inclined to believe our professors when they say they would like to attend medical school again. While we had a few casualties for the freshman year, we know that those men were talented and they have our best wishes for a more prosperous, if not as great, a benevolent calling as medicine. Our sophomore year was started with the usual chaos of locating classes, giving new interpretations to subjects and becoming rapidly fatigued. But now that we have taken root, the men are working conscientiously through the numerous subjects. The holidays have come and gone to every one's satisfaction, and we are all eager to accomplish the great task, as soon as pos-sible. It is our belief that our esteemed founder. Dr. Conwell, saw his "Acres of Diamonds” in the faculty of Temple University. And we feel the deepest gratitude and appreciation toward our professors for their patient and unceas-ing care. To say the least the prognosis is splendid. L. A. S.

For indeed, we wandered lonely and dazed through a maze of hills, checks, rosters, books, and whatnot. Added to our strange surroundings, weird tales came to our ears from the lips of the worldly wise, hand-shaking sophomores. So terrifying were the lurid tales of mortality due to certain professors, that we poor neophytes fairly trembled when we faced them. However we scon shook off our fears and quickly plunged into politics. A short and snappy election brought to Charles F. Fellows, the most popular candidate, the leadership of the class. The Sophomore Dance followed soon after and then we settled down to the grind with a vim. Soon visions of Thanksgiving appeared and visions became a reality. In tact, the Bucknell defeat was entirely too real for some of our Bison classmates. Hitherto, exams were quite rare but in the month of December the class went through a heavy barrage. One after another they came, each spreading its own form of gloom, until Christmas holidays came like a heaven sent gift. Casting our cares and worries to the four winds, we left town like flying shadows. Vacation over we came back refreshed (?) and very determined to do or die. The Dance Committee was appointed, and a date for the Freshman-Sophomore Dance set for February 3rd at the Elks’ Home. The dance committee consisting of Marvin R. Evans, Chairman; W. F. Darkes, W. F. Brennan, C. R. Davis, Herbert Herskovitz and Nathan Nathanson, made possible a most enjoyable evening Indeed to write further, one must use that antediluvian maxim of “History repeats itself”, for ‘tis but a tiny history of a great class.

We also wish to thank our advertising friends and the patrons who have aided us materially. Skull, '28. One hunt ted fifty-eightFAREWELL! FAREWELL classmates, farewell teachers, farewell Philadelphia. Having spent a good portion of our educational cycle in Philadelphia, the thought of departure causes us boundless wonderment. We're anxious to leave and get started in doing our bit in this life—yet we're sorry to leave our classmates and our teachers—our fellows in the petty trials and tribula' tions of Medical School and our inspirations of what we later would be. Oh yes -Philadelphia social life must be waved to in leaving. We've had our unpretentious fling and it too will be stored away in our Garden of Memories. Our class will be missed in more places than one and no one will say, “good riddance". We've been a happy crowd—well met bottom's up, boys. It's too bad we must go—we hate to go. We're going to miss everybody and everything. Not happily we say “so long” and with the idea in mind “Watch our dust”. We're desirous of proving to our older, guiding cohorts that their efforts have not been all in vain. If on departing from these halls we keep faith with one thought, “He has the most who serves the most,” then it will not be a farewell but in truth a reunion in one altruistic effort to keep the Medical profession in its long respected position.
