CLASS OF 1943Ml R E II II li II The years of preparation are over and ihe lime of opportunity and action has arrived- for our Nation and for ourselves. In an incomplete general way the SKI LL of 1943 makes an attempt to relive our years at 1 cmple Medical School—not the long hours in the lecture room always three sentences and a sore middle finger behind the prolessor, but rather at the side of this same professor in his laboratory or in his clinic where something more than science began to bind us together for the first time as men. then as apprentices in the Great Profession. It is also from this uni |ue contact with these great men that we look beyond the present period of alteration, correction and renovation to the years of peace in the future with the sober confidence that we have been prepared lor more than merely fighting a winning battle—we have been prepared by these influences and contacts to build for the day when we shall assume our places in the ranks of those to whom today we owe so much. We. the Class of 1943, are the future of the medical profession. Our direction has been well charted of that, let the SKULL of 1943 he an enduring record. Ml I f 1 T I II 1 In the- place where one expects the head of a department to be an outstanding leader in his chosen lield. scientific skill and knowledge is the prime prerequisite. Scientific skill and knowledge can exist in an inanimate lorm in books, where, of itself. it can accomplish great things. But when expert application is combined with a friendly, energetic, radiant, human personality, it is integrated to its ultimate possibilities. To you. Dr. Lillie, we. the Class of kjj), gratefully dedicate our SKVI.I.: Not only because you have been an able Professor of Ophthalmology and successfully demonstrated to us the unusual importance and inherent interest of your subject; . . . But because you have given us more than Ophthalmology—because you have been a friend, and an inspiration —because you have combined truth, honesty, optimism and success in such a vital way— And because each of us will begin his career in medicine deeply enriched by our contacts with you. • m! It 1Dr. Lillie describes the fuiijdal picture. Dr. Walter I. Lillie. M.D.. M S. (Ophthal.) DR. WALTER I. LILLIE WALTER IVAN LILLIE. M.D.. MS. in Ophthalmology, was born November 5, 1891. in Grand Haven. Michigan, the third of four sons of Walter Irving Lillie, Attorney-at-law, and Ella McGrath Lillie. His brothers arc Harold Irving Lillie. M.D.. Head of the Department of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Mayo Clinic; Leo C. Lillie. Attorney-at-law, Grand Haven, Michigan, and Hugh E. Lillie. Senior United States Attorney, Interstate Commerce Commission, Columbus. Ohio. He graduated from the Grand Haven High School in 1909, and entered the University ol Michigan that year. In 1915 he received his Medical Degree from the University of Michigan, and interned at the University Hospital. Ann Arbor, from September 1915 to June 191 ( .

There arc two sons: Robert J. Lillie, a student in Poulin Husbandry at Penn State College, and Phillip M. Lillie, an Aviation Cadet. U. S. Army. On July 1, 1917. he went to the Mayo Clinic as an Assistant in Ophthalmology and a Fellow in Ophthalmology. Mayo Foundation. University of Minnesota Graduate School. From August 1917 to March 1919 he served as 1st Lieutenant in the Medical Reserve Corps, both with the British and American Expeditionary Forces in France, where he was privileged to serve tinder Sir Frederick Mott, noted British neurologist and neuro-pathologist. On his return from Service, he continued his Fellowship in Ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic, and in 1922 was granted a degree of Master ol Science in Ophthalmology from the Graduate School of Medicine. University of Minnesota. He was then appointed Instructor in Ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic. He continued his service as such until 1925, when he was appointed an Associate in Ophthalmology, and again in 1927 an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the Graduate School of Medicine, University of Minnesota, and as Consultant in Ophthal tnology at the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Lillie's rapid rise at the Mayo Clinic was the result of hard work, good work, and a large amount of work. In addition to his medical and surgical service Dr. Lillie was the Neuroopluhalmic Consultant, and his original work in this field was one of the pillars upon which the Neuro-surgical Depart menr of the Mayo Clinic was built.

Temple University Hospital: Shritiers Hospital. Philadelphia, and Norristown State Hospital. Norristown, and Guest Lecturer in Neuro-ophthalmology. Graduate School, University of Pennsylvania. He is a member and past president ol the Eye Section of the Philadelphia County Medical Society. He is a member of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. He has frequently been honored by 1 it is society by being selected to give postgraduate instruction courses to the members at their annual meeting. Dr. Lillie is a member and chairman ol the Program Committee of the American Ophthalmological Society. He is also a member of the American College of Surgeons. Philadelphia College l Physicians. Sydenham Medical Coterie, the Harvey Cushing Society and Sigma Xi. He is an author ol numerous articles dealing with Ophthalmology and is a co-author of the textbook. "Cardio vascular Renal Disease.” He is also contributing editor of the Pennsylvania Med ical Journal, and the Confines Xeurologica. From his clinics we learn that Dr. Lillie has mastered the art, as well as the science ol in'cdicirte. He is always the same and works with enthusiasm—dispensing medicine, cheer. and optimism wherevtri ihe are needed. Dr. Lillie is a friend ol the student and ihe younger men in the profession and he is always anxious to help them when necessary. He has a series of sage remarks which are sprinkled through his day and are always appropriate, among which are:- “One robin doesn’t make a sprinef; "You can still have the ‘old raT and get hit with a height car": "The further out you stick your neck the more room there is lot footprints on it"; "One grows older but never old"; "Ophthalmology is the aristocrat of the specialities”; "II you are born to be shot, you’ll never be hanged": "You were a perfect patient"; and many others. He excels in his hobby which is small game hunting and trap shooting and he has won mam trophies and honors in this sport. He is a member ol the Philadelphia Countr Club, the Roxborough Cam Club, and the Atlantic Indians. Since Dr. Lillie has been such a guiding influence to our class, as well as to many classes before us. since he has contributed so much to our Medical School and Temple University, since he is such an important influence in Philadelphia’s Ophthalmology, and since he has given so much to National Ophthalmology and the Ophthalmic Literature. we, the (Mass of "l.V ate pleased and proud of our selection for this year's SKULL dedication. However. Dr. Lillie alone does not deserve all the credit for his brilliant succe ss. He has had a marked advantage in the1 timeh advice and inspiration ol Mrs. Lillie.

You are bearers of healing to a world whose need for healing is without precedent. Men everywhere, shattered in body and mind, will be awaiting your ministrations. Hasten, then, on your mission. It may take you, eventually, to steaming jungles or arctic wastes, but. suffering there will be lessened by your presence. And when wars are done, God speed your return to America’s homes, hospitals, and laboratories. Public health, industrial medicine. private practice, research, and the other fields of your profession will have need of your skill and training. Those who die to make men free arc heroes. No less so are those who live selflessly to make and to keep men whole. May this always be your high calling. Robi.rt Livingston Johnson. II It. It O II 1: R TL . 1 O H S O Nii m GREETINGS TO THE CLASS OF 1:943- VVhat a time in which to graduate! Plans which you have made are shattered by this world upheaval, but do not spend any time in contemplating “what used to be. in the Good Old Days.” Things have changed, and like it or not, we must face the problems confronting us. When the world tragedy ends, you will have a chance to play a part in the construction of the "new world": the opportunity to help build a just, humane and endurable peace. New horizons of medical progress will be opened, the potentialities ol which you do not yet dream. It is highly probable that the practice ol medicine as you now know it. will be changed. Try to guide this trend in the right direction, and if possible, prevent its becoming political in control. Wherever you may be, remember there is but one-straight road to success, and that is the road of merit. The man who is successful is the man who is useful. That you may all lead useful lives is the sincere wish of your Dean. William N. Parkinson. II It W I lon r Ljears ewe we first came to the Temple University Medical School. It seems impossible that the years have passed so swiltly when we consider how long the hours and clays have been. Still it is difficult to completely recapture the confusion and despair that was so well known to us in that first year. Broad Street was Broad Street even then as now, but it had a colder and less friendly look on our first arrival. The school building itself was austere and seemed reluctant to receive us as neophytes to tlie old and practiced medicine that it had come to represent. Stranger meeting stranger and each, fearing that the other was far more steeped in the erode than he. wondered at his own audacity to seek knowledge of a kindly science in such cold surroundings. Despair was soon to give-way to the new-monster Fear, however, for medical professors have a way of cramming knowledge down the student's throat, long after the anti-peristaltic waves have been established, and wondering at their poor retention. Drawings, laboratory procedures, cadaver-ing. definitions, origins and insertions, nerve supplies, blood supplies, the microscope, the developing fetus, the fourth floor lavatory, the next man—all of these bring a smile now even as the awakening dreamer smiles in the security of knowing "it was only a night mare." But that year passed as all years have a way of doing, and we were no longer the dregs but sophomores—which. I understand, is often translated “sophisticated morons." In spite of the fact that we were in a lighter weight group we were glad the bell had saved us for a second round, so we tightened our belts and went back to work. Working now a little closer to what we had previously thought was medicine we began to take heart. Phvsiology unfolded the wisdom of the human economy to us. and Pathology showed us that same economy under the stress and strain of poorly balanced supply and demand and disease. Then Pharmacology stretched forth its curative hand to offer us the best it had toward reestablishing this normal economy. But it was September again and ty.ji, and we were juniors. Now, that faculty-to-forget which we had cursed so vehemently for two 10 v aSdea___jl ince years tame to have a meaning, for new things were brought to our attention and whole-sections of disleveled cortex had to be cleared or rearranged for the new planting. A new and more vital seed was sewn and we were already looking forward to the harvest. Surgery. Pediatrics. Medicine and all thcii various specialties convened to bring us closer to an understanding of the noble art. and we began to amaze ourselves with our own profound utterings; It was also as junior students that we invaded the hospital and to our surprise found that we were no longer strangers but a growing part of the profession. Summer time and school for the senior went on. The air was thick as syrup. The constant drone of the never ending procession ol cars and busses could be heard through tlie-open windows. Flies droned about the heads of students, and the professors droned in their classrooms. Most of us staggered through the long sultry days grimly, but a good many others openly hibernated in the lecture rooms. Sweat oozed unilaterally from Dr. Brown’s plethoric forehead and Dr. Bacon shed his big bear coat. “Tomorrow and tomorrow" did some sure-enough “creeping.” and the "joie de vivre et d'etudier" reached a new low. “Itivita Minerva" the student finally succumbed to Lethe, and progress, if any, was of unknown etiology. Suddenly Fall brushed a cooling hand across the fevered brow. The delirious mind looked about dazed to find the leaves once more stripped from the trees and Philadelphia's own inimitable ugliness rudely exposed. I he tissue juices juiced and the marrow cried out for more iron to meet new demands. Work had to go on now as never before. Our country was at war and its people needed medical attention more than ever before. Graduation was set for March instead of July and l ime’s new pace had to be met. Four years have passed since we first came to Temple University Medical School . . . four great years that can never be returned. In times to come perhaps this will serve in some way to recall a few of the joys and heartbreaks of the past four years that were yours and mine. . . .» ..a .-, hyaton and i€sculapms.'SHealthsM ncalfeaD thejgods' goddesses that according tomy abffltyX. judge' nent. . i . lWLKkp THIS G TH this stipuJadon-tx) reckon him who taught me this Axt equally dear tome as my parents to share my substance ____ ___ with him rrlieve his necessities if recpredto look, upon his offspring irt the same footing asmy own brothersAto teach them this A rt if thcy shall wish to learn it.

Wiye, John CametonPRE CLINICALI s i Dr. John B. Roxby. Professor of Anatomy, whose vivid lectures on the Serratus and Pectoral is muscles are classic examples of a memorable study. ANATOMY The freshman medical student has two major clinical manifestations. One. fairly constant, is the befuddled expression to be found on his face.-The other, the most constant finding by far, is the peculiar odor of formaldehyde which permeates the air whenever one of the species is nearby. It has long been a matter of no little concern, especially to such of the laity who are apt to come in contact with freshmen traveling on crowded subways and buses, as to the possible source of so nauseating an effluvium. We were little more than laymen ourselves the day we were introduced to our cadavers. “You think yours stinks? Come over here and take a whiff of this one!” “Me touch that thing? Not on your life!” “I really don’t mind it so much. My complexion is normally green.” And through it all—"midst horrid sights Dr. John F. Huber gives well-planned and presented lectures on everything from muscle fibers to nerve endings. Levitov. Trimmer and Bcrnabei arc quizzed by Dr. Huber.Brown, Cochran. Pugh and High study the intercostal nerves with Dr. Roxbv's dissection. Working in one of the finest anatomy labs there is. and shrieks and sounds unholy” (omitting the odor), floated the calm imperturbable Dr. Huber. "Hum hm. All right. Just clean it up a bit.” His clearly diagrammed lectures could explain everything but the smell. He was ably assisted in the laboratory by Dr. and Mrs. Weston. Dr. Pritchard took an occasional jaunt through the lab quizzing the students and pointing out the smaller anatomical structures with the palm ol his hand. “The geniculate ganglion? Here it is.

On entering medical school Chemistry probably ranked second to the Philadelphia water supply in the etiological background for the freshman purge. As the year advanced, however, it proved to be the student’s first taste of real medicine. Perhaps today as we look back to that first year we realize that ii was the professor even more than the subject that finally brought about our conversion. Kind and subtle. Dr. .Saylor will always be remembered for his elaborate experiments which he carried out to perfection without so much as a test tube. After the actual course is over the subject grows, and we see it’s ever-increasing importance become Physiology, then Pharmacology and finally we realize that here is the very key to a profound understanding of medicine itself. Dr. Saylor will ever be endeared in our memories with the better, the more vivid, and, succinctly, the vital chemistry that deals with the human economy. Dr. Hamilton shows Sokatchuk the secret of getting good results. Dr. Saylor keeps dose touch on Matthews and 'Poland. Dr Mona Adolf does research in colloid chemistry.Dr. J. Garrett Hickey. Professor of Physiology. Physiology, the buga-a-boo of the pre-clini-cal years with a long imposing list ol victims through the centuries! We edged our way into the lab, prepared for the worst. We found it. We smoked drums, pithed frogs (not counting an occasional turtle), fought with our partners, and every Saturday were led into the auditorium like lambs to rhe slaughter, for our weekly quiz. “The law ol the heart is . . ." We’d try to think ol what Dr. Hickey had said in lecture and we'd pray fervently that somewhere on our person we held the precious dollar bill that we had received in change, that contained the notes that the good doctor had jotted upon it in preparation lor his lecture. Hill. Stewart and Kitzmillcr watch Dr. Oppenheiiner make an expert tracing of a research problem.

Better still, one of Dr. Spiegcls’ questions on neurophysiology. Let's see. 11 we removed the cerebrum from a cat in one fell swoop and it became rigid, the phenomena was known as decerebrate rigidity.

The approach to the proper therapeusis of human disease lies in the hands of a great army of investigators always searching for the newer, more specific, and less toxic preparations. Dr. Livingston’s stern expression in the lecture room made us appreciate the-exactness behind this man's scientific thinking. In the laboratory we were amazed at the array of bottles about whose contents we knew little or nothing. As time went on and we tasted, smelled, and drank some of these solutions, together with Dr. Larson's famous experiment pointing out their explosive quality, we were agreed that some of them were quite potent! The course is arranged so that the first six weeks of the first trimester of the Sophomore year are spent learning the physical characteristics and chemical properties of a whole host of drugs in the laboratory, while didactic material is piling up in the classroom. With the shift to animal experimentation we had practice in animal surgery, anesthesia, and observed the action of drugs on almost every system ol the AMBROISH PARE— 1MO-H90 Dr. Livingston and Kinlaw watch Cochran check a rabbit's Heart beat.

The well-known kymograph of Dr. Livingston's was a remarkable instrument of ingenuity, and as levers bobbed up and down and time markers clicked, the students prayed that the experiment might be good enough to have been of some value in scientific research. Dr. Bradley's experiments were always fascinating because they involved the ingestion ol spiritus frumenti, but no cases of acute alcoholism were reported, perhaps by this time a tolerance had been produced. Dr. Fellows presented a short course in prescription writing where we could appetite rules of solubility and incompatibility previously learned. But when sheets of Latin were passed out we stopped in horror, remembering, of course, the days of Cicero. Finally the ax was beginning to fall and we could feel its blue coldness each time we entered those oral quiz sessions with the chief and his collaborators. With seemingly as many doses and facts to remember as there were dollars in the national debt we entered the final exam well-prepared in a subject that in future years may mean our very bread and butter. 1 2 3 4 5 1. l)r..

Suffice it to say he gave such complete and well organized material that we treasure it with the best. His factual presentation left no doubt that here was a physician who did practice what he preached. l)r. Spaulding presented the demonstrations in the bacteriology laboratory and first taught us the value of anaerobic culture methods with their practical application. It took an unknown to convince us that we were not bacteriologists. Dr. Gault’s enthusiasm over parasitology still left MacKenzie sound asleep in the second row but served to point out that with speeded transportation these diseases might become more common in the United States. Life cycles of certain worms and flukes seemed impossible and now we can’t even enjoy a swim in the old "swimmin’ hole.” Dr. Kolmer introduced us to the immunological reactions by lecture in the third trimester and brought us to date on the Wassermann reaction, research on polio vaccination, and his recent work on brucellosis.

In the beginning we were so pressed for time that catching up seemed like some fond but fanciful dream. "Who’s the canary?" Dr. Pritchard would ask if some light-hearted lyricist ventured to whistle while he worked. We would then be assured that "we don’t need any music!” Surely Dr.. Pritchard can be excused if he was a iittle exacting during those quiz sessions: he thought we should be able to learn the material as well as he had. With a few wide, rapid gyrations of his arms, Dr. Pritchard would suddenly make a human embryo appear on the board. The term "embryology” stirs visions of unborn pigs and unhatched chicks, of countless hours spent over countless drawings, of Dr. Chase vainly trying to set us straight, of those awful mornings when we were among the "next-men" who could not "tell me right." We shall never forget Dr. Pritchard’s passionate exhortations to harder study—followed by his solemn assurances that we were the dumbest class in the history of the school. This hurt, until we compared notes with the other classes. 1. The amazing Dr. Pritchard, Professor of Histolog' and Embryology, makes us learn most in the shortest time. 2.

Dr. Victor Robinson. Illustrated by an exceptionally complete set of slides, this course brought to life the colorful past of the healing art. Dr. Robinson, with his pointed observations and unfailing wit, took full advantage of the human side of the story of medicine. Choice anecdotes, delivered in his unequaled style, will remain with us long after obscure, cold facts have passed into oblivion. MEDICAL CORRELATION 1. Dr. Victor Robinson gives graphic descriptions of tlie origin and development of medicine. 2. Early surgeons do their stuff! 3. Dr. John A. Kolmer gives Freshmen their first contact with the sick. j. A Kolmer clinic begins the discussion of a typical case. The second semester of our freshman year brought to us that thrilling introduction to clinical medicine and the Patient. Dr. John A. Kolmer’s task was to show us dramatically that the exhausting hours of laboratory work played a vital part in the practice of medicine. Dr. Kolmer presented in these clinics the history and diagnosis of many diseases. He showed us dearly how necessary anatomy, physiology, chemistry and histology are to the understanding and, therefore, the treatment of humanity's ills.I Pathology in the Sophomore year is designed to introduce the student lo a study of disease of the human hotly upon which he may base his subsequent interpretation of clinical signs and symptoms. Dr. Smith and Dr. Gault deserve much credit for their arrangement and presentation of the vast amount of material which this subject necessarily comprises. The first part ol the year touches upon the fundamental processes of cell function and form which go to make up disease. The secontl part deals with the classification, origin, and nature ol the numerous tumors of the body. The last pari of the year correlates various pathologic states with' the lesions of the different organ systems. Every day there are lectures delivered by Drs. Smith, Gault, Konzelmann. Acgerter, Pealc, or authorities from neighboring institutions. Just as regularly, the microscope is waiting with endless numbers of slides to be examined. Laboratory work is occupied with occasional hours in the micro-projection room, amongst the specimen jars in the museum, and in rotating sections for autopsies at Temple University Hospital. 1. l)r.

Hartley’s course was presented to us throughout the sophomore years. The good doctor and her many assistants lectured to us upon the important aspects of water supply, milk control, sewage disposal, vital statistics and the control and prevention of disease. Off and on during the year we made “field trips” to the Belmont Water Works, a sewage disposal plant, Abbott’s Dairy, and Sharp and Dohme’s Mulford Division. Dr. Hartley conducted most of these trips .carrying her roll book, which it was our pleasure to sign at the conclusion of the outing. As an added attraction to the course we were required to prepare and hand in a Public Health Survey of our home town. How we all envied the transfers who did not have to meet this requirement! Now with our country engaged in the present titanic world struggle the material presented to us by Dr. Hanley has assumed a major prominence. All of us will face vital problems of public health either in the field with our fighting forces or at home under wartime conditions. Surely, in the end. preventive medicine is the grand ideal toward which we all must work. Perhaps someday we shall participate in the great achievements awaiting Medicine in the prevention of disease. i. 3 4 i. Dr. Harriet L. Hartley, Professor of Preventive Medicine.

The lecture course served to introduce us to such pioneers in physical diagnosis as Auenbrtigger and Laennec; it first taught us that there is a logical approach to physical diagnosis through inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation; and it gave us didactic material on a subject we later learned could only be mastered at the bedside. Practical work on Friday afternoons was first aimed at acquainting the student with the normal and in smaller sections Drs. Kay. Ginsburg, Durant. McDaniel, Wood-house, and the Resident .Stall in medicine during the first semester gave instruction on normal finding on physical examination. The second semester was occupied by section work on the wards of Jewish and Episcopal Hospitals where the signs of disease were pointed out in contrast to the normal, and paved the way lor a better understanding of the clinical problems brought up in the third year. 1.

PSYCHIATRY When we began to learn that almost everything we did or had done to us during the first years of our life affected our personality, Dr. Pearson gave us some swell material lor rationalization. This foundation, however, assumed importance as Dr. English used it as the basis ol therapy and psychoanalysis lor the neuroses which he discussed in detail with the Sophomores. Soon we had tauglu the idea but lor a short while everything we couldn't otherwise diagnose was labeled a neurosis. Dr. Gerald H. J. Pearson lectures on the development of personality. Dr. Edward Chamberlain, Professor of Radiology. master physician, physicist, and personality. Dr. George C. Hcnny works within maze of scientific apparatus. X-RAY The mysterious subject of Radiology first penetrated our minds as freshmen when a course was given which treated first with the tundamenial physics ol X-ray as presented by Dr. Hcnny. The biologic effects of these invisible rays was later discussed by another member of the stall to be followed later by slide-lecture presentations by Drs. Roesler, Young, and Ar-buckle. 1 his plan was continued during the sophomore year.

They went up to Womans West to see a colored gal Not suspecting for a moment that she had a couple of pals. Everything was going nicely as the gal began to talk When suddenly IT happened and Sir John let out a squawk. Not one gal the room supported, but suddenly six more. Sir Charles will tell you strongly there were two close by the door. Sir John he up and left ’em with “No ladies’ man am I; I’ll let you take 'em. Charlie, I'm not used to flying high. I’ll off and see the nurses and bring you back the chart.” Sir Charles with both lists swinging cried; "For God’s sake have a heart.’’ “Hawaiian babes I slay with ease, they can't resist my charm, But these here dames are quite too much—Hey, leggo my arm." Not-once he fell but twice, then thrice, the females howled with glee Sir Charles he threw them left and right, "You can’t do this to me." By now Sir John, his conscience pricked, returned to join the fray ’Tis Well he did or Charles would ne’er have seen Dawn’s light today. Now back to back with nurses’ aid they fought to dear the room. Sir Charles slugged the daft maids off before they sealed his doom. When once outside, the blood wiped off, their tete-a-tete was done The maids locked up, the bars slapped down, the victory was won. Sir John and Charles sat down to think what had the battle cost. No cuts or breaks but Charles was sad,—he had his great chance lost. That night in prayer to Lord above they heard Sir Charles say— "Oh, Lord, my chance has come and gone, but for one thing I pray, Next time six dames set out at once to get me by their craft, I care not be they black or white-LET NONE OF THEM BE DAFT.” By Joe Toland.LOUIS PASTEUR—1822-I$9f CLIRICAL1.

MEDICINE For this we have struggled—"to look up and not down, to look forward and not back, and to lend a hand." The task was not an easy one. There were endless hours ol tedious study, of laboratories and clinics, and ol lectures. This is what it finally meant to us— the vital feel ol a bounding radial pulse under Astute, practical Dr. Bcckley takes time to show Mttrtagh and Garvin a medical case. Dr. Weiss’ psychosomatic clinic shows relation of psyche to disease.our lingers instead ol the cold, clammy feel ol the cadaver; the dean, exhilarating smell of the hospital in our nostrils in exchange for the miasmit compost of odors that filters out of the laboratories; the awesome, thought-provoking sight of a swollen heart dashing itself madly against the rib cage in place of long lines ol test-tubes, beakers, and flasks; the sound ol tell-tale murmurs and rales at the other end of our stethoscopes superseding the monotonous tick-lock of the clocks on our desks ticking away the hours while we read ponderous words in even more ponderous books. Medicine in the Junior and Senior Year was all that we had hoped for. 1. Dr. Swalm teaches Gastro-enterolog) from first-hand information. 2. Miller and McKay get the "inside" from Drs.

Dr. Solofl.Dr. Klcinbart takes the pulse while Dannenberg and Richardson watch. We will never forget our sessions with Professor Brown for the clear-cut logic of his diagnoses. We will never forget Dr. Brown lor the little things we always seem to underrate and which somehow stay with us the longest—the ruddiness of his face and of his disposition, the sincerity and practicality of his teachings, and the way he used to sweat with honest effort during those hot summer clinics of the senior year. They were all there to assist us at any time. Dr. Thomas Durant was there with his sincere friendship, philosophy and ability to teach. From him we got complete notes on the heart and lungs and their diseases. Few ol the great treasures ol beauty have impressed us more than that memorable discourse he gave us following the loss ol his father. Many of us under similar trial will think ol his words for the equanimity that they can bestow upon us. Dr. Groff helps Ullrich and Tyner with a clinic patient. Buerger’s patients get an injection under Dr. Franklin's direction. l)r. Farrar helped us greatly with his down-to-earth policies and his sympathetic understanding. “Nobody around these parts ever sees any ol this anymore, but it's on the list and we might as well discuss it.” l)r. Lansbury injected his crisp vocabulary and crisper humor into his lectures and we were the better for it. Dr. Full gave his classical lectures on allergy. Dr. Davis lectured on dietetics and presided us with a few out ol the ordinary demonstrations ol diet preparation. Dr. Weiss drew from his ample store of knowledge and taught us much in nis quiet, ear-soothing fashion. Dr. Swalin lectured to us informatively on liver and G-l disorders. In the clinics and classroom perhaps no other department in the school has enabled us to broaden our outlook so much during this critical period in world history as has this group of men. Dr. Impcriale prepares for a ward section.SURGERY Surgery is practically the ‘‘staff of life" of the Junior and Senior years. First introduction to surgery conies during the Sophomore year when Dr. Giambalvo and Dr. Rosemond lecture on minor surgery including everything from burns to snake bites. Next year Dr. YV. Wayne Babcock, with his perpetual youthfulncss and vast store of knowledge and experience greets the members of the Junior and Senior classes at 8 A.M. on Mondays. In addition to words of wisdom from our patriarch and comments from the selected students, the lectures were supplemented by slides and moving pictures to give more details on the appearance of surgical specimen and methods of their removal.

In the Babcock ward juniors hold bedside conference while the seniors do histories and physicals. Here the sump drain, closed drainage systems and steel wire show their superiority. Here the student studies the results of what he sees being done in the O.R. The Juniors also get “wrapped up’’ in a 4. Dr. Leedom directs Toil burner in the dispensary. 5.

The pay-off of the senior's surgery course is his chance to take his place at the operating table as a surgical assistant. This service teaches the technique of donning cap, mask, gown and gloves after the proper preparation; demonstrates operative technique and gives intimate association with the staff at work. It is only at this time that the student finally realizes that it will take more than lectures before he joins the ranks of those whom he now assists.OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY Dr. Thaddcus L. Montgomery. Professor and Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. GRAVIDA— MOO UipiH l According to most citizens who think that the facts of life are elementary, uncomplicated and otherwise chronically.uninteresting, obstetrics consists of somebody gathering a small bal out of somewhere, presenting it to the proud parents as though he had done something, and then quietly but emphatically demanding a fee. Well, friends, from the day Dr. Quindlen began his lectures in the Sophomore year to the final completion of that clinical notebook for Dr. Montgomery, obstetrics was a well-organized, well-prepared and well-complicated subject. The lectures in the Sophomore year taught us the normal anatomy and the physiology of the birth organs and tract and the mechanism of normal labor. We learned the normal pelvic measurements and all about the powers, the passages and the passengers in the various stages of labor. Through all this, Dr. Duncan operates with the aide assistance of Dr. Ales bury as Dr. Hobcnnan observes. Emeritus Professoi Arnold lectures on the Treatment of Eclampsia.patient, mild-mannered l)r. Qnindlen answered dozens of silly questions from us eager neophytes. In the Junior year Dr. Montgomery began the study ol normal and abnormal obstetrical conditions with a series ol lectures. Dr. Alesbury reviewed and detailed the tare ol the prenatal patient giving many sound points and hints about the management of this period. We also learned to watch weight-gain, blood pressure and various laboratory tests as evidence of the normal development ol the fetus and good condition ol the mother. Jovial Dr. Hoberman explained the various types of presentation and delivery and gave a never-ending supply of advice and encouragement to the boys in the back row who never seemed to be listening. Based on his wide personal experiences, Dr. Duncan dramatically discussed diverse developmental and acquired gynecological entities. We heard about retroflexion and retroversion, while colporrhaphy and other operations fixed various parts ol the injured birth canal. BID came to mean more than a government agency and we began to look lor the different types of discharges caused by G.C., strepts and staphs. Dr. Bceiham told us about the common neoplastic conditions ol the female genital tract and we prepared to do continuous Friedman's in suspected cases ol terminated hydatidiform mole or chorion-epithelioma. To top it off. Juniors spent ten days running to the delivery room at any old hour just to catch a glimpse of something more than a placenta. Meanwhile a series of conferences with Dr. Dr. Forman does a gvne operation with Dr. Dealing's help. Biinson and Hammers learn about the Arnold forceps from jovial Dr. Hoberman.Dr. Bcccham diagrams ihe cervix and adnexa for Dr. Miller points out delivery routine to Goldberg. Wicks. Pugh and Burbank. Bucher and Piltingsrud as they start the "inside." Dr. Friday docs a pelvic for Kremens and Gilliam Rumsey and Rodrigue see Dr. Hayford measure the fundus. Montgomery and members of the start gave the clinical side of obstetrical and gynecological problems of patients from the wards. Juniors and Seniors kept a complete notebook of the methods of diagnosis and treatment which is now a little textbook of the subject. Seniors enter one of their busiest and most interesting services when they spend two weeks in the O.B. clinic. The routine, general conduct and efficiency of the clinic is a pride of the department. Here we took histories and physicals, made prenatal progress notes, measured the funclus and listened for the fetal heart sounds, to say nothing of hunting for monilia or swimming trichomonae. I he piece de resistance in O.B. is the opportunity to conduct deliveries in the hospital At last we had the worries which I)rs.

Beside attending the ward deliveries, we had the opportunity to observe and assist the members of the stall'. Along with our regular ward rounds we had several rounds with the nurses who always got playful when we were most sleepy. Alter a week we graduated to the home delivery service where we ran to all corners of the city to deliver a baby or a placenta in some shack with countless children hiding behind chairs and tables looking with awe at the man the eldest would designate as "da doc.” We wish to pay tribute to the careful planning, the gentlemanly conduct of the staff and finally their preparation, presentation and demonstration of their subject.

Dr. Scott and Levitox discuss the positive Hollman sign. Dr. Fay checks on the metal capsule freezing the brain about the area of a removed glioblastoma multiformi. Fresh from studying the anatomy and physiology' of the CNS, Dr. Gilpin takes the Juniors and soon has them doing fairly well out at PGH on the tough ones. Pleasant, straightforward Dr. Gilpin teaches neurology with emphasis on the general practitioner's viewpoint and approach. Comes the Senior year and Dr. Fay. Combining highly scientific information, careful observation and imagination, Dr. Fay constantly looks forward into new realms of treatment and cure. With special emphasis on an aggressive treatment of head trauma patients, the principles of dehydration to permit the brain to live, the study challenges us to treat cases most doctors neglect. Neurosurgical conference brings the brains of Ophthalmology, Otology, X-ray, Pathology and Neurology together for an exchange of ideas for diagnosis. It shows the methods of arriving at diagnoses, handling and treatment in these difficult cases. .Personable Dr. Gilpin is a class favorite. Nemo Conference on Mondays was always practical. Drs. Sloan and Wycis show Tabari some neuro-opluhalinologic signs. ANESTHESIA Temple Medical School scored again when it obtained the services of Dr. Woo bridge from the Lahey Clinic. Here is a man whose knowledge and insight of the subject of anesthesia is paralleled by a keen desire to have the student understand the principles and the fine points of his art. An anesthetic sensation has been known to be a part ol many a classroom. but strangely enough it had no part in the classroom where it was the chief subject. As a senior service anesthesia was a bright spot amidst the gloom of many less colorful clerkships. The balance of life and death was first intrusted to our eager but faltering hands by this service, and constant and careful observation of the patient kept our own pulse and blood pressure a bit on the elevated side.

Capable and attractive Dr. Nina Anderson uses her spit fire style of delivery to teach the normal physiology of the newborn, factors determining normal growth and development, and a myriad pathological conditions common to this period. Dr. Lucchesi leaves his Municipal Hospital for Contagious Diseases to acquaint the Juniors with all the inlectious diseases from mumps to anterior poliomyelitis. In his entertaining way, interpolating an occasional choice and always-welcome story, he carefully expounds the etiology, incubation, signs and symptoms, stages, complications and treatment with many valuable points drawn from his extensive experience. In Pediatric ward the Juniors work up cases, discuss differential diagnosis and treatment and learn good pediatric technique. Practical Saturday conferences for Seniors with Dr. Nelson and assistants place emphasis on diagnostic problems—always hoping for some stray brain-storms to help the stalf! In Pediatric clinic and ward. Seniors take histories, do physicals (they have their difficulties), record impressions, suggest therapy, prescribe formulae and administer immunity to round out the course with finally putting theory into practice.i.

For two years we went to the O.R. every Saturday morning to hear lectures from Dr. Moore in Orthopedics. The Junior course consisted of the study of malformations and infections and neoplastic disease. The subjects were often illustrated with actual cases. Occasionally Dr. Moore would demonstrate the interne or- any other available person as a normal. Talipes equinovarus, Shenton's line, Bryant’s triangle were new terms but they soon acquired significance. In addition to lectures, Juniors attended the orthopedic clinic where we observed theory being put into practice. Here we learned the importance of complete accurate historytaking, diagnosis, x-ray interpretation and treatment. The Senior year began with lectures on the physiology of bone repair and requisites for union. Mechanical and surgical methods of orthopedics were reviewed. ORTHOPEDICS When individual fractures came up, we were somewhat disturbed at the number which bore proper names. But on seeing patients and their x-ray films which were carefully explained, we finally caught on. At those early 8 A.M. lectures, still-sleeping Seniors would duck a finger pointing at them followed by a series of rapid-fire questions . . . “Somebody . . . anybody! Well what would you do? An open reduction?” The energetic, conscientious Dr. Moore would beg us to “jot it down—it's important!” Seniors were also given an opportunity of working in both out-patient department and ward for more practical application of orthopedic principles.Dr. Carroll S.

DERMATOLOGY AND SYPHILOLOGY i i Who is not reminded of the old maxim "Beauty is only skin deep" while listening to Dr. Wright and Dr. Freidman unfold the wonders of the "skin game." From the very first day we were confused over just what was and what was not a "macular, papular, squamous eruption.” Messy-looking and bewildering afflictions, all of which looked and sounded alike, began to differentiate themselves under the patient instruction of this department. The well-written little blue manual published by Dr. Wright occupied much of our time so that his big, ominous-looking roll record book would not catch us with our sacral dermatomcres exposed on quiz days. Junior year was made up of didactic instruction and Slide presentation of cases, while in the Senior year we were privileged to examine selected cases brought into clinic. Each section had its turn in out-patient departments where we began to learn dermatology. It was in Syphilology dial we learned the devastating effects "the great imitator” visits on those who stray from the straight and narrow. It was here, too, that we first tremulously learned to give intravenous neo and intramuscular bismuth to unsuspecting patients who did not know our student status! Dr. Gross looks on with the group to see if Muus and his bismuth needle can miss a huge target. Lehman hunts for a vein while Mabcy and Dr. Schwartz watch.RADIOLOGY 1. Dr. Chamberlain, x-ray genius, places a patient for Vogclcr and Klimas. 2. Grover and Kolinsky learn about fluoroscopy from Dr. Young. During the Junior year we were treated with a course on "Organ and System Pathology as Revealed by the Roentgen Ray." It was during these discussions that the student learned to appreciate the tremendous understanding Dr. Chamberlain had, not only of X-ray, but of physiology, anatomy, and internal medicine. The clinical-radiological Conferences of the Senior year pointed out the limitation and uses of the X-ray in diagnosis, and the radiologist was held forth as a consultant in various branches of medicine and surgery. Dr. Weiss presented the clinical history and physical findings in a given case and Dr. Chamber-lain or Dr. Young pointed out the value of X-ray in showing the way to a final solution of the case presented. 3.

PSYCHIATRY Recovering from overzealous ambitions to call everything psychic difficulties, we worked up our own cases for PGM sessions where Dr. English showed his masterful technique for interviewing and handling patients. Seniors continued with clinic classes under Drs. English. Pearson and Freed. Finally in psychosomatic conference we learned that mental conflict can cause physical disease.

Senior lectures in the amphitheater found “Unde Matt” with gown, cap and gloves playing a radio and a phonograph while demonstrating the decibels of noise produced in a modern industrial plant. RHINO-LARYNGOLOGY Dr. Ridpath and Dr. Davis combined to give us Rhino-Laryngology for a short time in both Junior and Senior years. Slides and demonstrations plus an abundance of clinical material made possible by the Philadelphia sinusitis climate constituted the course. Here we learned about the all-important sinuses, and how to relieve suffering souls from this ever-present condition. 2. Dcgge, Graeber and Gilliam watch Dr. Dav is operate. 3.

Dr. Bacon, assuming the professorial robes of the late Dr. Hibschman, undertook to lead us through a detailed and complete study of the common and troublesome diseases of the anus, rectum and sigmoid colon.

BRONCHO- ESOPIIAGOLOGY CLINICAL PATHOLOGY Near the end of the Junior year the student is led through the dark and relatively tin-chartered domain of Broncho-Esophagology by Or. Chevalier L. Jac kson. What lies therein becomes somewhat illuminated by the enlightening words, well-planned outlines and lantern slides of Dr. C. L. (whose father is well known for pioneer work in this field). However, it is not long before the student realizes how difficult it would he to teach anything but tlie principles in such a highly specialized subject. Chest conferences on Friday afternoons bring before the student the value of Bronchoscopy in the diagnosis and treatment ol numerous chest conditions. We wish to pay tribute once again to the Chevalier Jacksons, father and son, for their excellent accomplishments in the special technic) ties of Broncho-Esophagology. The role of clinical pathology as an aid to diagnosis could be expressed no more vividly than by Dr. Konzelmann, whose straightforward expression made each assertion seem like truth itself. In the Junior year students had experience at the autopsy tables at TUH and PGH under the direction of members of the pathol-ogy department. Again the Senior years found the students sweating with CBC's and urinalyses on the "merry-go-round." The outstanding correlation of disease and pathology in the ward and autopsy was held Tuesday afternoons with Dr. Brown making the diagnosis and Dr. Konzelmann giving the autopsy report. We were amazed by Dr. Brown’s clear, quick analysis which was nearly always right "on the nose." Dr. Broun discusses the diagnosis while Dr. Koiuelniann collects the bets. Pleasant Miss Spearing checks Goddard's count while Hazlctt and Johnson struggle along alone. GENERAL IIOSPITAL Our first contact with “Old Blockley” impressed us with its wealth of teaching material and busy expression on the intern's face. The Wednesday morning sessions during our Junior year could be written a an endless caravan of patients wheeled before us with bowel obstruction, cholecystitis, or peptic ulcer as outlined by Drs. Burnett and Astley; with schizophrenia, neurasthenia, or senile psychosis presented by Dr. English; with chorea, athetoses, multiple schlerosis, or alcoholic neuritis discussed by Dr. Gilpin. Wednesday afternoon sessions our. senior year continued PGH work as we struggled to find our section in neurology, gynecology, surgery, medicine, pathology, or urology. Practical instruction in these subjects was fortified with an abundance of clinical material drawn from the spacious wards, and if superman x-ray vision had allowed us to see the patho1-ogy under the epithelium of these patients a textbook could have been written at one silling. Not to be forgotten are Dr. Kleins clinico-pathological conferences in medicine where we always believed somebody told him the answer before we started. 1. Dr. Thomas Klein begins to tear apart Zerbe's diagnosis. 2. Dr. Konzclraann always looks on the atrial wall for rheumatic roughening. 3. You ask for the arrhythmia —Dr. Dom produces it for Burns and Burgoon. • . Dr. Gilpin finds the Babinski positive. 5. A paretic performs for Dr. English and the class.

Dr. Vogel demonstrates a patient for the diagnosis section. EPISCOPAL Physical diagnosis assumes more realistic form during the Sophomore year when students observe patients on these wards and apply the cardinal principles that Dr. Kay has taught them—inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation. In smaller sections Dr. Kay impresses the student with his keen eyes and gentle hands, while we never forget that a shock is a tapping sensation. Seniors in small groups go hack to Episcopal to again go over these cardinal principles and to round off the course in physical diagnosis with those numerous observations that Dr. Kay so often told us are not fairy talcs. Of all the subjects in medicine we feel that here is the one which will stand us in best stead in our future practice. MUNICIPAL At “Muny" Seniors see those troublesome contagious diseases that grandma knows most about. Each Tuesday and Thursday a small group brave the elements and dodge the tombstones to lake a peek at a maculo-papular rash. Dr. Lucchesi presents a variety of cases and it is here we may have heard the first “whoop” of pertussis, seen the first tracheal tube in use, the first Koplick spot, or seen the Kenny treatment of poliomyelitis in action.

A very active Alumni and a remarkable faculty membership have made the spacious chapter house at 1512 Allegheny Avenue possible. Under the able leadership of Manson Meads our senior year in the fraternity house has been particularly gratifying. We will always remember with pleasure the many happy occasions that we have enjoyed as members together—Saturday night beer parties. Founder's Day Banquets, Tri-Chapter dances, yes, and even the long bull sessions and the studying together. Many have gone before us, and there will be still more to follow when we arc gone, but we will always be proud that we were at least a small part in the moving parade that is active Phi Chi. The fraternity salutes you that have mastered your work, she reassures you who are on the brink of your careers, and ever faithful she turns back to encourage you who are still active members.OFFICERS: President.....William F.

Tin's date, October 31, has since been observed as Founder’s Day by all the chapters throughout the country. The Alpha Lambda Chapter was founded at Temple in 1932 through the efforts of Drs. Robert Ridpath, Norman MacNcill, and the late Drs. A. C. Morgan anti Harry Hibschman. Fraternity activities are centered about the house at 3232 North 16th Street where the stimulating discussions may drift from medicine to politics, the war, economics, or other topics of timely interest. At intervals faculty members present fireside talks on the broader aspects and the Art of Medicine. These are of value in helping the student chart a future course in medicine. The climax to the social season is the annual Tri-Chapter Dance held at a downtown hotel where the members of this chapter broaden their acquaintances to include those of Penn and Jefferson.

The aims and purposes of the fraternity were social intercourse, mental development, scholarship, and mutual assistance. Those were broad purposes but we of Alpha Kappa Kappa feel they have been accomplished and are being carried on. The Beta Omicron Chapter was granted its national affiliation on May 7, 1932. Thanks go to Dr. W. Emory Burnett and to the charter members for establishing a chapter which has gone far toward making our medical education more interesting, more practical, and even at times more tolerable. The fellowships enjoyed, the common interests shared, all part of our fraternity life have contributed in making that life something to be looked back upon in the future with pleasant recollection. This scholastic year, started in times of emergency, certainly has not lacked variety.

Dr. Larson is now Eastern Praetor of the fraternity and serves with Dr. Henry Schneider as advisor to our chapter. Other faculty members exhibit an ever-increasing inter- est in the group and frequently spend an evening in reminiscence or instruction at the house. “Home” is at 3327 North 16th Street, where frequent open-houses are held to foster the fellowship Phi Beta Pi embodies.

There is a spirit of good-fellowship, sincerity and understanding at Phi Alpha Sigma. Harmony is the keynote. Frequent informal meetings with mutual interchange of ideas has done much to promote this attitude. Emphasis is laid upon scholastic achievement. The members of the Iota Chapter are constantly striving to maintain Talking it oi in the living room. the good reputation of the fraternity in this regard.

With this quotation from the preamble of the constitution of the national organization, the Sigma Chapter here at Temple presents its aim and purpose. Scientific activities this past year have been highlighted by a series of symposia on medical subjects of current interest presented by both faculty and student speakers. The social program traditionally ranges from stag sessions to several formal dances and banquets given throughout the year. The fraternity was founded in 190.} at the Cornell Medical School by a group of eight students.

It has grown and expanded rapidly until today the fraternity has active chapters in forty medical schools. In 1928 the Alpha Iota Chapter was founded at Temple Medical School. The spirit and purpose of the fraternity is well summed up in the following: “To foster and maintain among the Jewish medical students and doctors a spirit of fraternalism and of mutual aid and moral support; to promote and advance the concept to instill and maintain in the hearts of all members a love and a loyalty to their Alma Mater and its ideals; to inculcate such ideals as will result in actions worthy of the highest precepts of human endeavor.” The Temple Chapter shares the frater-nitv house at 1128 Spruce Street with the other Philadelphia Chapters.

Ot ten bergA year following the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Surgical Society finds our world locked in combat where new fields are opening for aspiring young surgeons and where great strides are being made in the care of the wounded. Ever since its organization in 1907 the chief aim ol the society has been to present recent advances in the field of surgery by means of student papers, general discussion, and by speakers, from our own fatuity or from other hospitals, who are well versed in a particular aspect of surgery. It boasts today of being the only undergraduate medical society in the United States which has existed for thirty-six years under its original name, and with its original Patron still an active surgeon. The social side of the student's life is augmented each year by the traditional banquet or picnic. Dr. Zaborowski entertains the group frequently with his beautiful koda-chrome slides of the professors in a less dignified role. The pictures of Dr. Babcock's fishing trips to Canada impress one with this great man's youthfulness and his ability to cast off the cares of a busy practice.

RESIDENTS INTERNESDIRECTOR OF NURSING We dropped in 10 see Miss Lofius. With a graceful wave, she indicated chairs on the opposite side of her desk, and we advanced toward them, already warmed by the friendly glow in the depth of her gray eyes. She pushed aside the shea! of papers she was studying, as though there were not a half million more important subjects awaiting her consideration. With her typical directness, she stated that her preference above all other types of nursing administrative positions is that one which offers opportunity for working with student nurses. Creating a warm atmosphere and building a friendly spirit of cooperation among her co-workers arc the objectives in all her decisions. But her personality is not all hospitalized. Her very diversified knowledge of present-day affairs and trends of human nature has been nourished by extensive lours in our own country as well as abroad. Her interest in the theater and the legitimate stage is one of long standing, but as less conservative pastime, she excels in Chinese checkers and bridge. Instead of offering the proverbial red apple, extend an invitation to mid-afternoon tea, have red roses on hand, you will have begun to win her approbation. As the first class to graduate under Miss Lofius’ administration, we wish to show our appreciation for the numerous privileges at our disposal, and to wish her happy years at Temple U. Hospital School of Nursing.ADMINISTRATION HEM) SURSES Upper I. to r.: Misses Chamberlin, Xodziak, tinea-weaver, Tilcv, Schciblc, Simpkins.

As added attractions are the nurses home, the fewer working hours, the opportunity for exchange of ideas with students from other hospitals.STUDENT ASSOCIATION The Student Association ol me nursing school has, as its representation to the nursing school Office, a student council. Chosen by vote front the three classes, the girls on council meet to discuss problems of student happiness and errors in student behavior. As an extra-curricular activity. a formal dance, the high-spot of the late winter, is held annually at Mitten Hall. To new students and to newly-capped Juniors, as they join the association, is given a handbook containing all of the rules and suggestions set by the nursing school office, concerning all, from hours in the nurses home to where to place soiled laundry on Wednesday night.President: Thelma Kemp; Vice-Pies.: Belle M.

Anatomy? Ethics? Homesickness? Alter Miss White explained it, there wasn’t even a vestige of the problem remaining. With years of experience and a fondness for young people, she knows the best prescription for curing the blues, or Hunkees, or a bedsore, or procrastinators, even a dull party. You know Miss White, even those of you who have not had the good fortune to be one of her pupils. You recognize her as the dignified lady in crisp white with Victorian collar, toward whom all eyes turn and to whom everyone listens respect-fully, realizing that her words hold value. Her eyes sparkle and with her hearty laugh, she puts everyone at ease; it was a matter of course that the Class of June, 1943, should choose her as class director and advisor. In appreciation lor her assistance, in admiration for her extensive knowledge and willingness to share it, in fondness for a woman of such an endearing personality, we unanimously and appropriately dedicate the nurses' portion of the Skull of 1943 to Rena L. White.MARY J. AN I ENL'CCI Philadelphia, Pcnna. ANN A M. RARRE I I Philadelphia, Penua. (JR ACE E. RE HR Xllcmown.

Remember the day we took a peek into the microscope and gasped at the idea of counting all of those cells . . . and how proud we were when we had mastered the automatic counters and could make the lab sound as if it were hailing on a shingle roof . . . the day we took our first count and were so nervous we almost swallowed the aspirator . . . the intricacies of putting the clamps on hematocrits . . . trying to decide whether granules were neutrophilic, basophilic or azurophilic and the proper identification of the Turck Irritation cell . . . learning that while Miss West might not always be right about differentials, she was never wrong. Then in Typing—still in the Hematology lab, but elevated to typing and crossing bloods for transfusions . . . mastering the complexities of agglutinins and agglutinogens . . . our jingle for remembering the crossing set up: Patient’s serum in the bottom and the donor's in the top, Reverse it for the cells, don’t forget to mix it op. Dr. Konzelman’s tragic story of the RH positive fathei and the RH negative mother . . . our pride at showing-off the streamlined Jones basal metabolism machine . . . and complications with the parallel ruler. "No kibitzing, please." Hematology is such a solemn business. "One-stick-Hine" at work. "Yes. 110% hemoglobin is possible.”CLINICAL PATHOLOGY Then, of course, we could just give up laboratory work and revert to the class room. Bacteriology every morning at nine, Chemistry on Thursday at one. Clinical Pathology, Physiology, Parasitology. “When will these Blood Counts be taken, when those crossings be read?” If we don't cut class we’ll never get home tonight. We groaned, we argued, we rationalized, but we went to class. Bacteriology, our first introduction to the microbe, taught us much. We learned just about all there is to learn about bacteria (so we thought when we passed the exam) and lots more. Now we know that before we fall in love we must investigate the allergic tendencies of the man in question! In Parasitology we learned that the people in the South are lazy because they have Uncineriasis. Chemistry taught us never to eat spinach without a milk chaser, what urine indican is, and the difference between pasteurized and human milk. In Clinical Pathology we learned that “Maiden Swoon Disease” is easily cured by soaking our Knights' Swords in water and drinking the resulting potion. Ah, yes, we have become wise! Our pride and joy and the newest contribution to the hospital, made last year by Dr. Konzelmann ... the Blood Bank. We feel like mathematical geniuses keeping tract of internes' and patients' debits and credits and gloatingly survey shelves that can furnish whole blood, frozen plasma, or dessicated plasma at a moment's notice . . . and now we realize the miles of rubber tubing, the oceans of distilled water and the years of autoclaving behind those rows of bottles. Premyclocytic stage of the polymorphonuclear neutrophil. of course." "Kline negative and donor compatible." "Looks like a Type AB from here." Washing up comes before setting up.Perfect timing on li a ml K. Endless job. Ribboning is no joke. Sue. HISTOLOGY Histology is a strict taskmaster and it didn't take us long to find that discipline and split-second timing were necessary in order to complete surgical slides in twenty-four hours. There were tense moments alter the message “frozen section coming over” and breathless ones trying to ease fluid "buttons” out of tubes without nervous collapse. Here we had our first encounter with autopsy tissues . . . admiringly watched Miss Brentz cut those beautiful ribbons . . . learning that cutting and coverslipping required more than just a steaejy hand. None of us will forget those Thursday afternoon dashes to the staff room for the “conference case.”Serology was one of our favorite labs alter we conquered the mixes and transfers and plus i Kahns . . . Blood Bank kept us supplied with Klines in our spare lime . . . remember Mrs. Lynch s roundtable quizzes . . . the classical questions— "What is a non-specific prozone reaction?" and "Did anyone turn ofl the oven?" Our fust month we almost drowned in dishwater and met Garibaldi and Geraldine . . . remember when we were introduced to "The Carriage” and learned to spot a likely vein from the door of the ward . . . and how dark it was the mornings of diabetic clinic . . . and our solution-only half the problem was computation. BIOCHEMISTRY AND SEROLOGY Freshmen snow all alxnit everything— Don't we look busy! "59 minutes; 59 seconds; phosphatase.' dish pa ns and centrifuges.BACTERIOLOGY AND PARISITOLOGY We thought we'd never meet any other bacteria except Mycobacterium 'tuberculosis that first month, but reading plates in the morning introduced us to everything that grows on blood agar . . . including the non-hemolytic staph albus that is hemolytic staph aureus tomorrow. The girl in the kitchen had to keep an eye on four gauges at once while adjusting a slippery pH, but she certainly made beautiful blood plates—and 50 plates to a batch, too. Margaret Green was her guardian angel—responsible for keeping the bacteria from starving. Making up vaccines was exacting, but streaking fan-shaped plates was our favorite pastime. Gremlins went ice skating on the blood plates occasionally until we bribed them with immersion oil. The size and nucleus of balantidium coli was an answer to a parasitologist’s prayer—we couldn't miss it. We learned that tapeworms have more proglottids than there is rice in China, and that Superman lives an uncomplicated existence compared to the Schistosomes. We played upstairs maid to the mice and learned to handle the baby ones without our toes curling. In our spare time we invaded the library to write our papers and to realize the staggering scope of Bacteriology. Our unknown organism had us puzzled for a while, but a few hours' thumbing of Bergey smoothed the way. As we reviewed for the final examinations we breathed a thankful sigh for those weekly quizzes that had helped us to absorb so much so painlessly. Viridans strcpi—not swept viridans. Very nourishing menu today. Salmonella cholerae suis—or Proteus morhani? Parasitology relaxes for a moment.U RINALYSIS-GASTRO-ENTEROLOGY AND ALLERGY After two months in urinalysis we began to feel like veterans . . . we had taken our venipunctures (with cooperative patients' veins) and recognized that Miss Rotman could find a vein il the patient had it hidden in his pocket. Our first days at the scope began to show fruit and with Miss Rot man's help we could differentiate between red cells and white cells . . . and found that ail unclassified is “amorphous material.” With our introduction to the RehfuSS tube, we realized that Castries would be no "pushdown" (Oo! Ed. note.) W ith the standard exhortation “Breathe and swallow.” our first patient finally took the tube, much to the rebel and amazement l all ol us. W e were made to feel apologetic, offering the patients bread and water for breakfast, until we explained that it was the test meal . . . they were not impressed. Our work in Allergy was much diflcrent from the work in the other labs . . . for the first time in our lives we realized that dust can be useful we made vaccines to prove it . . . also that there isn't any substance in the world that someone isn't allergic to—or so it seemed at the time. Clinic day in Allergy was a busy time of mass production setting up and skin testing . . . we never realized how many syringes and needles were used until wc washed and sterilized them ad infinitum.

By this time Dr Montgomery and assistants have carefully dtaped the patient with sterile sheets and a local nerve block is done about the site of the planned incision. 4. The abdomen is quickly opened with a 6-inch incision while the assistants deftly clamp hemostats on severed vessels. 5. Now the uterus has been exposed and preparation is being made to enter it. 6.

It is to be congratulated on a job well done. As it contemplates with pride and justifiable satisfaction the achievements ol the past, it is all essential to realize that there are before the graduate ever widening fields of possible accomplishment. Especially is this so today with our nation engaged in a titanic struggle to defend the principles which made it great among the countries of the earth. I o an even greater extent will it be true in the period of reconstruction which will follow. Whether his environment be military or civil, the doctor as a man of influence may stand, not only as an exemplar of scientific integrity, but as a great influence for spiritual progress. His should be the realization that "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding." Thus may it be possible once more at the end of a life so ordered to look back on a job well clone. Thomas M.

Physically, it is impossible, but memories of friends, teachers, the time and place and many personal experiences may be retained when strengthened by a word or picture. Those who composed this book earnestly desire that their humble effort help you to review some day the most memorable of medical school events, and that the exigencies of the war and even busier days perhaps to follow will afford time to relax occasionally in a quiet corner and chuckle as you slowly turn the pages. mmm ‘' S? ■ -rlSherman F. Gilpin, Jr., M.D. For . . . frankness, sincerity, honesty and utter practicality ... a teacher, didactical and clinical ... a friend, warm and enriching . . . 6We Dedicate the December 1943 Skull On a bench in the amphitheatre of “Old Blockley.’’ not too many years ago, sat a red-headed boy intently watching his father conduct the Saturday afternoon neurologic clinic. So it was that the seed was planted for a tree which would later show the identity of its paternalism; as. later in life, this lad was to take his father’s place in the same pit. Dr. Sherman F. Gilpin, Jr., was born on June 29. 1903 in West Philadelphia of Scotch-English parents. Fie attended primary and high school in West Philadelphia, college at Ursinus and in 1929 graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. A two-year internship at Philadelphia General Hospital brought out an interest in obstetrics and pediatrics, but the day for neurology was saved by a service as assistant chief resident in neurology at the same hospital and shortly afterwards by a fellowship in neurology at the Mayo Clinic from 1932 to 1933. Following this, Dr. Gilpin was first assistant in neurology at the Mayo Clinic until 1937 when a call for a clinical professor of neurology from Temple University School of Medicine was answered. Since returning to Philadelphia, he has been neurologist to Germantown. St. Luke’s, and Children’s Hospitals. At present Dr. Gilpin is on the staff at Methodist and Philadelphia General Hospitals, besides his association at 1 emple University Hospital. A versatile personality, the "Gilp” was thespian. head of student government, and organizer of the glee club at Ursinus College. A musician and singer, he studied voice and piano in earlier days; now dotes on pianistic harmonizing with the radio, on singing barber-shop tunes, on impromptu swinging with an old cornet. Not a shy courtier. Miss Kathryn Lawser was calmly told that she was to be Mrs. Gilpin at their first meeting, and it took only a few June days in 1937 at Rochester. Minnesota, to convince this native Philadelphian. The members of the December Class of 1943 have thoroughly enjoyed their contacts with staccato, explosive, earthy Dr. Sherman F. Gilpin. Jr., and they take much pride in dedicating this edition of the Skull to him. The home of Dr. and Mrs. Gilpin is beautifully situated at 630 Mulford Road in Wyncote. The Gilpins pose at the gate leading onto the front terrace. In the study the newest neurological tome is perused. A picture of the late Dr. Gilpin. Sr., may be seen. 7DR. ROBERT L. JOHNSON, President It is a privilege to have the opportunity of greeting the graduating class of the Temple University School of Medicine. You have studied diligently to perfect yourselves in one of the highest of professions and now you come to the end of a long road—yet it is but the beginning of another. The beginning of a life dedicated to unceasing labor and self-sacrifice. Many of you are about to be commissioned in the Army of the United States or in the United States Naval Reserve, and you will serve your country in a twofold capacity. Yours will be the tremendous task of preserving man in the midst of the powers that seek to destroy his body and soul I am sure that all of you are fully aware of the hardships and the difficulties that lie ahead and yet you have not faltered. You go forth to serve America at war. and you will continue to serve America at peace. You will bring to men suffering with pain on some far battlefield, blessed relief; you will care for those at home and patiently toil to keep the men and women of America well and strong that they may support our fighting men. Always you will work untiringly without thought of personal welfare or remuneration. This is the task which you have set for yourselves and it is a glorious one. 1 pray that He. Who is the greatest of all physicians, may guide your every endeavor and bring to you a life that is rich in the service to which you have dedicated yourselves. 8 Robert L. JohnsonDR. WILLIAM N. PARKINSON, Dean At this time of graduation, a message for the Senior Class is expected from the Dean. It is most difficult to give such a message when 1 know that your personal plans, as well as the ambitions and plans of your parents have been shattered by the upheaval through which the world is passing. I think of the last war—how we entered it with the lofty thought that we were engaging in a crusade that would make the world safe for Democracy—"a war to end wars”—and I also think of how we broke faith with those who died. How. after 1919, the world started along the wrong road and how the level of civilized life sank until international morality made a new all-time low. Should we not look upon the world today as an international community? Technological advances have united the world so closely that the community now takes in every region and every person on the globe. The human race must now be considered as one family and human beings everywhere as brothers, and all nations as part of an indivisible community. Yet the world community, which even row exists, has no government Let us create a world government and give it power to suppress the crime of war. Treaties have failed us so let us have international law with sufficient force in back of it to suppress and smite any international gangster or bandit who dares to try to disturb the peace of the world If we cannot have some such federation of nations, wars will continue to recur— wars even more brutal than the tragedy through which we are now passing. May 1 urge you. who are just entering your professional life, to support any and all plans that may contribute to lasting peace. 9 William N. ParkinsonDays To Remember . . It was not the usual picture of enrollment day at any university that confronted the freshman on September 17. 1940. With expression designed to be jaunty and completely aware of things, he peered with strained face past other strained faces attempting a like nonchalance, at the notice, “Freshmen report to 603 at 9 A. M." It was not the usual picture for a number of reasons. Many had just slaved in summer schools to scramble together enough credits. Some, for this and other reasons. were deep in financial difficulties. A few were markedly disturbed over the prospect of the entry of the United States into the war. There were those who had missed the boat on first year finals; they dropped medical gems into the willing cars of the uninitiate. Those who had majored in English listened in worried silence to the scientific exploits of the chemistry majors (they who lived in blissful ignorance of Dr. Saylor). The Dean welcomed us. standing before a miniature Valhalla of freshmen gods. One of these gods adjusted his spectacles and we heard the memorable opening address to the freshman class by Professor John B. Roxby: ”. . Gone are the carefree college days. Behind you are the lazy hours passed in reverie under the greenwood tree . . .You have chosen a great but difficult path, and the travail which lies ahead is of a quantity which may defy your present imagination ... Be advised by those who have gone before you. to work hard, and you will be successful, as have thousands like you ..." That Dr. Roxby himself had worked hard we had no doubt, as we followed in dizzy fascination his textbook description of the astounding course of the pec-toralis major fibers: "... proceeding infero-laterally with respect to. and anterior to. the deep fascia over-lying, and in close proximity to. the etc. and etc. . . and inserting into the antero-medial aspect of the medial portion of the groove along the medial border of the line extending caudally from the lesser tuberosity of the humerus." (The humerus was in our bone boxes, it seemed.) For a time during the first months we felt much like a medicine ball tossed between Drs. Pritchard and Saylor. But there were compensations; for instance, the day Dr. Saylor crept up behind McEwan (who was idly titrating tenth normal I ICI against tenth normal I IC1) and twanged: "Yew can’t bluff your way through this course." Later that day. Dr. Roxby crept up behind Dr. Saylor. Anatomy laboratory held no terrors for us much; we carelessly compared obesity and leanness, color and olfactory effulgence of our respective cadavers, but first incisions differed amazingly in intensity of purpose. Some were straight and clean, others wavy; some grated on the vertebral column, others barely nicked the epidermis; and Dr. Huber will never understand just what it is that freshmen do to superficial nerves. Perhaps the grimmest day. in our otherwise untroubled association with Dr. Pritchard, was that on which we were served up unusually fresh pig trimmings for intimate dissection. I low we longed to indulge in furtive emesis. Those who stuck it out. even unto the last laryngeal cartilage, were martyred for life. Second to this uncherished episode were several lesser ones with cats. None of the male cats had ovaries, it was found. To the chemistry lab in peanut butter jars, milk bottles (quart, pint, or half-pint, depending on a number of factors). Vat 69 bottles and Erlcnmeyer flasks came the multi-tinted urines of the freshmen for personal analysis. Capacities ranged apparently from 50 cc. to 3000 cc.. and the ratio of day to night volume was far from constant. Dr. Schrader's battle cry will long ring in our ears: "Have them in by twelve o’clock. I’ve got to have six liters.” But we passed the examinations in spite of all these hazards. A pre-acceleration vacation pexied our ptotic viscera to the extent that we faced with impunity Dr. Smith's pipe and Dr. Gault's cigar. Coming at last to the clinical correlation with the basic sciences, we gloried in the opportunities for a pseudo-professional laying-on of hands as we stalked the wards. While the spirits of Aesculapius. Hippocrates. Osier, ct a!., taught and guided our minds and hands. World War 11 drew closer to home. We joined the Army and Navy and got reserve commissions. Then we were requested to resign them. However, with resignation came monetary aid for privates and seamen, a governmental boon long past due for many of us; and. concomitant with the first paycheck, marriage was in vogue. The Army received uniforms first, and feeling ran high. While the Navy slept, the Army rose with the first cock and drilled in a neighboring schoolyard. Eventually, a form of militarization hit the combined army, navy, and civilian forces. In order to assure headquarters of our constant presence in school, we were to present tickets—coming out of class. With the advent of the navy uniforms came much anecdotal material. Gobs saluted cadets and blushed. Broad Street seemed thronged with policemen, and one student inadvertently held up traffic at a large intersection. In a downtown theatre a navy student was severely admonished for refusing to distribute programs to the audience of Othello. The Wagner-Murray-Dingcll bill proposing a form of socialized medicine occupied our attention for a few days: much was said pro and con. mostly the latter. But following a sensible talk by Dr. Edward Chamberlain. we decided not to rise up in arms after the manner of the South Carolinians. The "Old Guard" made its rather stubborn stand in periodicals and in gatherings of the clan: the "radicals" argued hotly against the present system. What was agreed upon embodies the general idea that, at any rate, the present bill is not the answer, although it is granted that in the not too distant future, some more practical plan than any so far must be devised. Now. with the hospital procurement organization having its say on intern quotas, we look forward to interning, suspicious, but on the whole, hopeful! 10 mEDICInflE DOCTOR Purposefully, together we have been. And scrutinized the future, with small hope. Held by the spell of healing, and have seen The skills of comfort come within our scope. Patiently they have dealt with us, our gods. Given and forgiven misconcepted truth, Verified us, and underwrote the odds. Suffering the restless dubiousness of youth. Out of that fire they kindled, watch it now. Structurally welded of our separate seeing. Hammered from weakness unto strength, and how Practiced it is, this unipurposed being. Thus, after years’ long tempering by its flame. The doctor merits, now, his honored name. u April 22. 1943 S. A. M.The three major forces which work for the maintenance or restoration of health are correct mental attitude, normal physiological activity and medical and surgical therapeusis; of these the Inst is probably the least. —ANONYMOUS EDUJRRD I. AUER Auer’s vulnerable position as No. I man in the alphabet early excited our sympathy for him. We soon found him a student at heart and one who did not need our sympathy. Though a brother of Psi Upsilon at University of Rochester and active in track and dramatics, he concentrated his efforts on psychology and carried on some research in physiological psychology. At Temple his interest in basic sciences and research in physiology were further testimonies to his faith in the experimental approach which has made medicine what it is today. His efforts were rewarded by election to Sigma Xi in March. 1943. Close friends know that Ed will take up any argument presented with vehement rebuttal, perhaps as a form of mental exercise. He likes the theatre and varied types of music. Summers have been spent as camp counselor and assistant camp director. His shrewd insight and unquenchable enthusiasm will be valuable assets in his chosen field of pediatrics. Internship: Abington Memorial Hospital: Army. 12The phyulclan who bringeth love and charity to the kick, if he be good and kind and learned and skillful, none can be better than he. Love teaches him everything, and will be the measure and rule of all the measures and rules of medicine. —Savonarola Tracy began his practical experience early by interning at Grafton State Hospital for the mentally deficient and doing research work with Dr. G. A. Talbert, world renowned physiologist. These activities were a part of his pre-transfer work at the University of North Dakota. Here, too, he served as instructor in physiology and pharmacology, received his B.S. and B.A. and was awarded membership in Kappa Kappa Psi and Blue Key, honorary fraternities. I he call of the woods lured him to camping, fishing, hunting, and canoeing; favorite sports were basketball, baseball, and hockey. Other odd hours were devoted to music and the raising of blue-ribbon gladioli. In January. 1943. Tracy married Betty Jane Erickson. After a Navy internship he plans to return to the West to practice orthopedic surgery. His thorough and serious approach to medical problems should assure his success as an "orthopod.” Phi Beta Pi is his medical fraternity and dermatographism his personal cross.To read textbooks is easy, but to do research work is to grapple, inch by inch, with the obscure, and battle, step by step, with the unknown . . . —Victor Robinson From the cloisters of the Lutheran parsonage in Shippensburg, Pa., emerged personable, generous Bill, endowed with a sympathetic understanding of human nature and a winning disposition that equipped him well to undertake the study and practice of medicine. Collegiate days at Gettysburg were filled with responsible extra-curricular activities, including positions as managing editor of the newspaper, sports editor of the yearbook, and presidencies of Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity and Pi Delta Epsilon Honorary Fraternity. He enjoys swimming and living under the sun in summer and spent several such seasons as camp counselor. Recently, in preparation for his surgery courses, he got employment in an abattoir.

Preliminary education and two years of medicine at North Dakota University had fitted him well for the hurly-burly of life in the East, where he found new-material to foster his interest in photography, poetry, and gastrocnemic curves. After a short disagreement with an air-raid warden as to the status of a light bulb, he resigned himself to life in Philadelphia, joined Phi Beta Pi. procured a junior internship at St. Joseph's Hospital, joined the Army, and participated in heated debates on all subjects.

At Alfred, while earning his B.A. degree he assisted in the biology department and was a member of the German Club. These activities were dwarfed by his marriage in 1939 to Lottie Snyder.

In the locality of Monaca, Pa., his home, Milliron labored in an iron mill for a year after graduation from Geneva College to earn the wherewithal for the beginning of his medical course. At Geneva, afternoon tea. bull sessions, contact with the fair sex, and chess added a lighter touch to his pre-medical course. After a trying freshman year in the turbulent Driscoll-Caldwell atmosphere of 1424 W. Ontario Street. Bill moved to the Phi Chi house for a more peaceful existence. In all probability he will enter general practice following service with the Army, although his interest in pediatrics and obstetrics may lead him to specialize in one of these fields.

Nevertheless, the grace and poise with which she has excited our admiration have been unaltered by the experience and our only reaction is one of wonder at her remarkable adaptibility. Blanche has worked as a nurse, gone bicycling, and actually enjoyed sewing and cooking, withal retaining a fondness for dogs of all sorts—further evidence of her diversity. Before taking her pre-medical course at Temple University. Blanche attended Blackburn College for a while. At medical school she soon found her prime interest to be centered on the fields of obstetrics and gynecology. For a junior internship she went to Woman’s Hospital and upon graduation plans to go to the Medical Center in Jersey City for her senior internship. Eventually. Blanche will practice somewhere in New Jersey, the state of her nativity. 87Everything in excess is opposed to nature. —Hippocrates.

Philomathesian Honorary Society, president of the Pre-Medical Society, and a Delta Kappa Epsilon of no mean capacity. Active in intramural sports. Nick also devoted much time to promoting good will among the students. During his summer vacations he strove to reduce his equatorial bulge by slaving in the steel mills. His happiest diversion is attempting to avoid all forms of work, but he has been notoriously unsuccessful, to his continued annoyance! Occasionally he will shoot eighteen holes in the eighties, but more consistently will just lie comfortably under his favorite cork tree.

For his pre-professional training. Ozzie made the rounds of Penn State and Muhlenberg; the latter institution gave him a B.S. degree. He then came to Temple, joined Alpha Kappa Kappa and settled down to work. In September. 1941, he married Lillian E. Howard and last year was blessed with a baby girl. Linda Jane. Internal medicine, obstetrics, and pediatrics interest him most, but he claims that watching for Linda's first tooth has gripped his attention recently.

At Temple, Founts and Dr. Pritchard discovered in each other a kindred spirit who would rather shoot ducks than peer at striated muscle. A credit to Fount's artistic nature are the water colors and oils of the wild life he knows so well. Most absorbing to him recently have been the following: (I) the World War II perambulations of a World War I four-stacker, the U. S. S.

Recent summers have been spent in the Adiron-dacks.

After attending high school in his home town, he went to Muhlenberg, where his interests included varsity football, track, and getting his B.S. degree. It’s a little hard to visualize, but Rick actually trod the boards as a member of the Mask and Wig Club at Muhlenberg: (just to keep in training, no doubt). He also included in his schedule membership in the Pre-Medical Society and Varsity M Club. His rotundity and captivating good humor have earned him innumerable friends in all classes.

Harry, known widely as Trapper, spent the days of his childhood and youth in New Hampshire. Orchestra and football occupied a small portion of his time in high school, and his efforts later at Dartmouth were rewarded with a B.A. degree in chemistry and zoology. When he arrived at Temple it was inevitable that he should become a Phi Chi. A Dartmouth Chi Phi with a flair for the dramatic would obviously have no other choice. Beyond that, he has developed an interest in surgery as a future specialty, joined the Army, and aligned himself with the bachelors in school. Trapper has declined to leave New Hampshire even during vacations, as testified by the fact that he spent several summers working in an iron foundry there. Throughout the year he devotes his leisure time to women, reading, hunting, and fishing, women, horseback riding, boating, women, tennis, swimming, movies, and. of course, women.

This intelligent, imaginative student with the rare sense of humor hails from Ashland. Pa. An ardent sportsman, he played varsity ball on the 1935 Ashland State Champion Team. Undergraduate days were spent at Temple where he obtained a B.S. degree. There he engaged in a little boxing and worked at numerous jobs to earn his education, including service as student assistant in the biological laboratories. He is looking forward to the good family life since his marriage to Ruth Zimmerman in 1943. Chuck, an accomplished trumpeter in days gone by. has now turned to classical music to satisfy his musical desires. Ace bridge players testify that he is slick with the cards.

ROXBY. M D. Professor of Anatomy From the morning when Dr. Huber invites the class to enter the dissection room for the assignment of tables, the individual student is identifiable by reason of Emil’s perfume, to which he will become accustomed, but is destined to carry as a trade mark until the end of the year. Unveilings are always fraught with suspense, but nothing comparable to the soul-shaking moment when the wrappings are removed from one’s cadaver. It is with some disappointment that one learns the face and head are not to be unmasked for some time. However, when the face finally is laid bare, no feeling of humanity exists for it. It is merely the cephalic portion of a "thing.” That it once lived seems fantastic. Then. too. when the features finally are undraped. having flayed and disrupted the various systems of this acquaintance, and explored the length and breadth (quite literally) of its bowels, it is scarcely odd that it is so familiar: nothing about it can be considered very surprising. Meantime, Dr. Huber. Dr. Roxby. and the members of the department have been lecturing, instructing, and quizzing the group concerning the nature of the material being laboriously analyzed at the dissection tables. It is only after a few practical examinations on anatomic material itself, that the student begins to realize that he really has learned. Freshmen learn from the master of perineal dissection. Dr. John F. Huber rediscovers the internal abdominal ring for the neophytes."Have you fellows read up on this?" is Dr. Brom Bones makes the acquaintance of Jones Jean K. Weston's query. and Jones—Saturday afternoons. VISCERAL ANATOMY Gruff, freshman-frightener Dr. Pritchard takes the incoming class and welds, threatens, bullies it into a fast-moving, fairly conscientious group literally scares them into cerebrating. Visceral anatomy becomes suddenly, dynamically important. Few men are so resented, later so loved. Not until the sophomore year, when the dust has cleared, is "Pritch" revealed in reality as warm-hearted, forbearing. No classes does he teach the juniors and seniors, but witness their cheers breaking out as he passes through the lab to his office. "We know now." they say. and so affectionately thank him inwardly for goading them into studying. Patiently, while seemingly impatient. Dr. Pritchard drills visceral anatomy into not-too-interested-heads. "You better know that!". "Get that?", and "Next man!" keep students on their toes. Tossing sections of the human body in front of the bewildered victim in quiz hour served more to confuse than help him—until he learned "Pritch” had slyly turned the piece upside down. But beware! the cocky student, for who but "Pritch” can find the question that can t be answered? All drawings must be finished by the first week in October. The sagittal section is Vesalius would have been happy one of the most trying.NEUROANATOMY The fascinating complex of the human central nervous system was brought to us, replete with a super abundance of new terms, by Drs. Pritchard and Weston. Hours of real work gavetosomcof us thedubious reward of going even further into the maze of vascular plexus, spinal cord tracts, colliculi. We learned where the localization areas were on the cortex, where the decussations. The rudimentary lesions of the cord and brain stem were explained. Pathways to the cortex, visceral efferent impulses, proprioceptive sensation—how familiar we were with those entities! Perhaps here was our peak in abstractions. Like mathematics, neurology is exact, logical, sequential. For many of us it became fun to work out the problems of "finding the tumor’’ or the effects of a lesion of the C. N. S. And many found the cerebral exercise tedious, over-exacting. Embryonic neurologists began to see the light, chemists and pharmacologists were tolerant. The functional components of the autonomic nervous system arc charted on the blackboard. Models of bronchopulmonic segments of the lung are displayed by Dr. Huber who is well known for his work in this field. SPECIAL ANATOMY If Dr. Roxy were damned, as he invites himself to be, for every repair of the perineum done without regard to the special vicissitudes of the anatomy of this region, he would long since have been having it out hot and heavy, and man to man. with the controller of Hades. Instead, he flows through our undergraduate years like the healing flood. I imeless and irrevocably practical, he will share his hours as unstintingly now as he has done with our fathers before us. so that our anatomic armamentcrium will be as certain when we leave Temple to practice the art as it was when as first year men we left him knowing "all about the body structure.” For the special delectation of the junior class, he entertains about noon, one or two days a week, in his anatomy museum, and at these times amazes us both with our own ignorance of the major structural systems, and his encyclopedic knowledge of the human body, l or confection, he will reminisce through the many happy years of a full medical life, and almost imperceptibly imbues his students with that homogeneous appreciation typical of physicians as a class. 136HISTOLOGY RflD EMBRYOLOGY Labelled by some wits as the "Saturday Afternoon Course." embryology threatened to occupy our every waking moment. Let him who wonders where time flies seek out the lab where patient freshmen sit by the hour, make innumerable drawings. Here the knowledge of the origin and development of the human ovum was made plain; here tiny embryos were examined, sectioned. mounted on slides. Lest we linger thoughtfully, pondering the where and why of men from such tiny beginnings. "Pritch" bombards us with admonition and exhortation. Even the long Saturday afternoon stretches catching up on work failed to pacify “the old man." More work, better drawings. harder quizzes! The twin course, histology, was one in which "Pritch" could do little to help; here we "dug it out for ourselves." Charts and drawings were exchanged for slides and microscopes: every tissue in the body was examined, stained, scrutinized under the "scope." By patient study we came to recognize the microscopic structure of the bladder, prostate, uterus, brain, and all the others. It seemed like a colossal feat then we couldn’t visualize the still greater feat the sophomores were vaunting in our faces. "500 slides per student." That lay ahead, but not so far that we didn't make sure we knew our normal histology: "Pritch" had the same idea. WILLIAM C. PRITCHARD. M D. Professor of Histology and Embryology "All right! Now show me where." Saturday matinee. MELVIN A. SAYLOR. I .S.. M.D. Professor of Physiological Chemistry CHEmiSTRY HDD TOXICOLOGY With some apprehension and many misgivings the class approached chemistry. This was the course that had proved Armageddon to so many before us. Dr. Melvin A. Saylor must have looked at us. too. that day with some consternation. for we w'ere a motley crew. Before long we fell into the routine of things. Dr. Saylor's personality dominates the classrooms. Quietly sceptical, thoughtful, occasionally doubting the astonishing answers, he quizzes rather than lectures. Little humor here. Dr. Saylor dryly whines in nasal twang. "Why. man . . . you don’t listen to the question!”; pulls freshmen into his office for the feared post-midterm diatribe: generally adds to the first yearman’s trepidation. Shrewd, hawk-eyed, wizened Dr. Saylor daily paces the lab. knows who boils his Folding's after the urine is added, who sloppily passes over his chores. So exacting is his interpretation that the quiz hours pass and only two questions have been answered, but those, thoroughly. A complete change in pace catches the class off guard as brilliant, young Dr. Hamilton swirls by it with lectures on bile salts and vitamins. The time is short, much to be put across, so come extra meetings, mimeographed sheets with more material, massive quantities of facts, tables, com- Dr. Saylor checks an end point. Unknowns . albumin, blood, bile, sugar?parisons. Almost it seems as though there is "just too much ’ Each freshman beneath his constant line of griping slowly comes to the realization that perhaps he won t make it. Now he understands the mortality in the first year. A charming respite from the tension are the hours with Madame Spiegel-Adolf and colloidal chemistry. Between quaint jokes we gained a healthy respect for the intricacies of pure scientific research, carried out by patient, earnest men and women. But mostly we liked to sit back and just listen to Madame Spiegel-Adolf. Bombastic Dr. Earl A. Schrader, since gone into the Chemical Warfare service as Captain. U. S. Army, reviewed experiments, quizzed, prepared solutions, growled at shortcomings, reminded us about six liters Monday A. M. for unknowns. Came Monday A.

Kept notebooks. had to be just so. up-to-date, with nothing left out. and in for checking on time. To many, the lectures on toxicology which filled the second semester were a serious matter. To others there clings the lemembrance of an unexpected talent of Dr. Saylor’s. On one occasion, acting out the role of a sick dog with histrionic ability worthy of the stage, we remember him relaxing on the front table into a profound, moribund state, continuing with the story. Alarmed at the state of her pet the fidgety neighbor had demanded an antidote. Dr. Saylor, equal to the occasion, administered an overdose of strychnine. Soon the effects were apparent on the dog (per Saylor). Stiffening in a typical strychnine convulsion. Dr. Saylor described how he overcame this state by re-overanesthetizing the dog. The end of this story has been forgotten, but few will overlook the antidotal and toxic effects of chloroform and strychnine. impressed on us in such realistic manner. A few of us may forget some chemistry: few will ever forget Dr. Saylor. The question of positive or negative needs often to be settled by Dr. Robert f 1. Mamilton. Professor of Colloid Chemistry. Dr. Mona Adolf, poses in her laboratory. Blood COj determinations are explained in a special section. Part of the collection for the six liters. 139PHYSIOLOGY J. GARRETT HICKEY. M D. Professor of Physiology Scholarly, tonsured by nature, Dr. J. Garrett Hickey presides over the physiology classroom and lab like a dignified friar, informing us of the intricacies of metabolism, the intangibles of special senses. Numerous dog-eared papers held his lecture precises and from what part of his anatomy they would next appear became to us a topic of much anxiety. Invariably they would appear, however: each time a lecture would result. worthy of a "Best and Taylor.’’ Especially appreciated was the lecture during which a Martini glass appeared from nowhere to illustrate a point—with it coming the timely remark. "I assume some of you know what this is." To lend variety were the jam-packed, informative lectures of Dr. Oppenheimer. Belying his slow, leisured appearance, his mental gyrations were a strong contrast. Through the most difficult material wc swept without a pause: less swift note-takers were lost, the speedy barely managed to keep up; truly it is said that is where Leo lost his hair. Miliron became prematurely gray. Cohort, quiet Dr. Collins gave forth with even, informative lectures, rounding out the course. The "Saturday Sessions" quietly, smoothly, cut a sickening swathe into our assurance. Frantically we worried through pages of quiz questions. finding words for fill-ins such as. "Halfstrength .......causes.........to .... muscle." Instructor Mrs. Weston and Dr. Oppenheimer pray for the safety of the tracing. Mrs. Hamilton. M.D., elaborates on the experimental findings.Find the frenulum, thread it. tie it. Oops! Get another frog. Smoking drums turn slowly, don't overheat! NEUROPHYSIOLOGY Deft, accented Dr. Ernest Spiegel gave of his time to offer us information on the dynamic working physiology of the nervous system. From his current experiments he drew material, explanations. to acquaint us with the underlying principles of neurophysiology. Segmental innervation, paradoxic mydriosis. the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system all underwent intense scrutiny. Animals were decerebrated for us, labyrinthectomies done, anesthetized and very limp rabbits and cats passed from seat to seat. By many means, we were made to realize that neurophysiology was basic to life itself. Each day. tranquil Dr. Spiegel perched atop his high stool and. equipped with pointer, carried us further into the working nervous mechanism. The mimeographed neurophysiologic material became treasured, coming as it did from such a recognized authority. Hours were spent deciphering the gems instilled into a paragraph or even into a sentence. Cervical sympathetic stimulation. Brown-Sequard syndrome, effects of complete transverse cordotomy; all were minutely explained, drawn, correlated with the antics of the classroom menagerie. Dr. Dean A.

Stolidly behind him. aligned to bring us face to face with every aspect of knowledge concerning useful drugs, were his gencrals-in-arms: Dr. Cunningham to handle the section on effects of drugs on animals. Dr. Fellows to teach us how to master prescription writing, the late Dr. Bradley to supervise experiments on ourselves. Dr. Larson to drill us in the chemical properties of drugs. Over all fell the weighty authority of Dr. Livingston, who with purposeful mien saw that all went well in this encounter with the mighty horde of therapeutic drugs and surprised us with the explosive quality of Ethylene. But all was not direct assault: our knowledge grew by steady roundabout toil and grind: months first in the lab sniffing and tasting medicaments. Could we ever remember these when they were used for unknowns? Then a large amount of drugs to compound by ourselves, reports to make on properties of others. Yes. and the inevitable and steady bombardment of quiz questions to answer. Soon we were marshalled into more efficient units to directly try these remedies on animals, all properly anesthetized. In groups of four we Dr. Edwin J. Fellows ask the significance of the action of mag sulfate on the rabbit intestine. Dr. Eld ward Larson corroborates the Temple dehydration therapy.worked, placing cannulas, ticing off arteries, attaching kymographs, and tinkering with those little levers, injecting drugs, watching for results and caring foi the anesthetic. Other hours we spent in session with Dr. bellows, writing awkward, crude presciiptions: only belatedly growing more adept. Experiments presaged clinical years ahead: effect of sodium chloride and magnesium sulfate on volume of intestinal contents and cerebrospinal fluid pressure—our introduction to “Pappy” Arnold’s dehydration for pre-eclamptics; effect of drugs on the uterus prelude to Dr. Montgomery's care in the puerperium. Many nights did the “midnight oil” burn as we pondered the classical work of Goodman and Gilman. Here was the meat of pharmacology exemplified in print, a text to be kept always. Likewise, the oil burned as kymograph records were scissored, pasted: lab results were gathered, outlined . . . was there to be no end to this notebook? Toward the end of the course, since this was medical school, things got tough. Added quizzes loomed, our voluminous notebooks were due. lectures kept right on. miles of kymograph records piled up. lab “unknown” soon—for awhile the battle was more nearly lost than won. This pharmacology was not a course we were taking, but a way of living. And the days wore on and soon the final. We who passed wonder how and why we did. Here we learn that the power of suggestion, as well as drugs, alters the blood pressure. Later, in our clinical years, we would occasionally visit Third North to review the properties and actions of drugs we wished to prescribe. Also, because ol the rapid advancement of sulfonamides and the increased emphasis placed on therapy of tropical diseases, we kept our contacts with the Pharmacology Department almost until the day of commencement.

M.D. Professor and Head of Department of Pathology PATHOLOGY Sophomores, feeling the confidence of their high position, come to pathology assured of their knowledge of the workings of the normal body. But here their optimism ends. The assignment is to gain an understanding of the fundamental changes which take place in the body in disease— a big task! Perhaps in no other medical school does the student have a better opportunity to grasp the pathological tissue responses to disturbances in circulation, inflammation, the infectious diseases. Nor can he gain elsewhere a better knowledge of the various types of tumors—their origin. classification, appearance in the patient. The answer to this is the exhaustive text. Essentials of Pathology, written by our professors, Drs. Lawrence M. Smith and Edwin S. Gault. Three hundred actual case studies arc included in the material in the text, giving the worthy sophomore opportunity to follow diagnosis, present illness, past history, physical examination, laboratory findings, subsequent history, autopsy findings and microscopic examination on each case. In addition every man finds in his locker over five hundred loaned slides, one or more of which comes from the corresponding clinical case. As James Ewing has stated in the introduction to the volume, "No other device has proved so efficient as the study of case reports interpreted in the light of gross pathological data and analyzed by the methods of histopathology." “There is .1 plasma cell at about six o’clock ’ Dr. Gault. Full house. Dr. Pcale finds a malignant cell before the carbon dies. 5Clinical path lab finds the technician keeping the boys busy. Dr. Aegerter conducts an autopsy at Old Blockley. CLINICAL PATHOLOGY For us. here was the real thing. The "Essentials” over all other books became our bible. Pathology over all other courses became our way of life. "We don't want to make lab workers out of junior students, but we do want you to know what happens when you blithely order lab tests." Nevertheless, ample practice training came our way in laboring over blood counts, taking blood, doing urinalysis, cross-matching for transfusions; all of inestimable value for our senior year. Jovial, paunchy Dr. Frank Konzelmann was our mentor, leading us in laboratory diagnosis of disease in all its variegated forms. Kindly, a real friend to students, he would not hesitate to be- come the stern taskmaster if he thought we were negligent in our studies. We were to thank him for his work with us when we labored in the hospital next year with actual patients. SURGICAL PATHOLOGY In the junior year, pathology for the class deals with autopsy technique and surgical pathology. Each student section does numerous autopsies, begins to recognize pathology as it is "on the table." Philadelphia General Hospital is our hangout, the white tiled room our “workroom.” Some few hardy souls even brought their lunches after the first few viewings. Wednesday afternoons found us again over the microscope—special surgical specimens. The characteristics of the leucocytes as drawn by Dr. Konzelmann.

Professor of Medicine in charge of Bacteriology and Immunology BACTERIOLOGY Curtain raiser of the second year, bacteriology (and physiology, both with notebooks) make the first trimester a prologue to ordeal. The class as a unit is sustained chiefly by the realization that the third and fourth years have constantly been recruited from the ranks of the sophomores, and no alteration of this method is contemplated. Perhaps the most satisfactory portion of the course, from the student's point of view (other than receiving a passing grade) is the problem presented by the “unknown.” As a review of the subject, it offers a last resume of material studied, and leaves the successful analyst feeling very much a well-grounded research man. In addition, the practice in taking exhaustive notes from Dr. Kolmer stands the student in good stead throughout the clinical years. With Dr. Spaulding conducting, the morning laboratories arc a symphony of germ study, and heaven protect the luckless fellow who desires to know “what this 'bug' is!” And as the conclusion of the course approaches, it would be a mercy to know certainly how heavily the shaky marks in the laboratory quizzes will affect one’s final grade. From the standpoint of the services, the series of lectures and the laboratory work given over to the organisms causing the entcritides are presently of extreme importance. The vacuum machine for anaerobic cultures, as designed by Dr. Spaulding, is demonstrated by Dr. Bondi. Practical work in bacteriology. Culture transfers by Trapp are checked by Uric.PARASITOLOGY Given as an adjunct to bacteriology, the course comprises a series of lectures by Dr. Gault and the staff. Fecal smears, blood smears, and the vagaries of scoliccs are made understandable through the facilities of the laboratory, and detailed demonstrations employing most typical, most illustrative specimens. Because of etiologic importance in relation to appendicitis in children, and because of the discomfort of the infestation itself. Entcrobius vermicularis was carefully investigated. “The pin worm manifests itself by intense perianal pruritus, occurring chiefly at night, and causing the child to lose sleep, and become an undernourished, very nervous individual. This is most likely because the female, unhappy in her colonic surroundings, comes out for fresh air, when the time for deposition of the eggs has arrived.’’ In the past two years, parasitology has risen sharply in its importance medically, due to the nature of the campaigns, both of the Army and the Navy. IMMUNOLOGY A cursory appraisal of the statistics on the incidence of disease in our armed forces is all that is necessary to convince even the most skeptical as to the success attendant upon the application of the principles of immunology to masses of potentially cross infectious humanity. Yet there are individuals, and groups, who decry the “introduction into the human body of extracts that dare to interfere with the patterns of nature, etc.’’ That men of Dr. Kolmer’s caliber have been able to advance the science of immunization to its present state of successful function is. in the light of such unqualified prejudice and unreasoning bigotry, an achievement for which all modern medicine daily pays practical homage. The professor describes the colony of hemophilus influenzae on blood agar. We learn that tapeworms are like rabbits. Dr-Spaulding points out reproductive organs in a segment.

Professor of Preventive Medicine, Hygiene and Public Health PREVENTIVE IREOICIRE If. after completing Dr. Hartley’s course, one is impelled to scrutinize the under surface of all pastry, and to drop a little calcium hypochlorite into one's drinking water, who would deny the wisdom thereof? As the student's first contact with public health, this course serves to make him aware of his tremendous responsibility to the public at large: it needs a deal of medical supervision. When it becomes apparent that, even in the matter of protection of the milk supply of society as a whole, an infinite amount of thorough and painstaking preventive measures must be taken to offset disinterest, sloth, and ignorance, one appreciates how certainly the physician must be his brother's keeper.

KEEP OUT RESTRICTED AREACHARLES LEONARD BROWN. B.S.. M.D.. FA CP Professor of Medicine and Hi ad of the Department of Medicine If juniors were asked to name their most time-consuming subject they might well answer: “Medicine.’’ Medicine represents the culmination of more prcclinical work, more study, more debate than any other subject. As freshmen, students had early seen their first clinical cases presented by earnest, grandiloquent Dr. John Kolmer; heard the history of their profession from Prof. Victor Robinson. Sophomore year brought Dr. Kay and physical diagnosis. Juniors got into the thick of it with Dr. Brown in therapeutics, Cohen in “chest.” clinical clerkships. Seniors heard more lectures; did clinical, ward work. Especially memorable: Dr. Brown’s demonstration of basic drugs and instruments for the average practitioner’s bag. The cost seemed astronomical. Also. Dr. Davis’ hour given over to the Misses Hill and Griswold, dietitians. Chief class comment: “God spare me from diabetes, and the necessity for calculating or eating the diet. For more detailed account see following pages. In medical correlation Dr. Kolmer first acquaints the freshmen with the signs and symptoms of disease. Philadelphia General medicine: Dr. Thomas M. Durant presents clear-cut diagnostic gems. This patient had a sulfathiazole rash.HISTORY OF MEDICINE Eloquent, vociferous Dr. Victor Robinson traces for freshmen the circuitous, devious route of medicine from the times of trephination and bloodletting to the candid present. Cheers greet the fast-talking, fast-thinking professor as he prepares to launch forth into Alexandrian lore. Egyptian medicine. Fluently, hypnotically he weaves a spell over the most pragmatic freshman, bringing the colorful past to the complacent present. The romance of medicine reliving of the dawn of experimental science . . . these add richness to the sterile, exacting drabness of freshman drudge, work and fears. The kaleidoscopic panorama was spread before us: 18th Century England that Golden Age of Quackery: uroscopic diagnosis of love-sickness and female-chastity by exam of urine held up to the sun: Jenner at Sodbury with the country- girl and cowpox; the body snatchers and sack-’cm-up men of John Hunter’s day. Dr. Victor Robinson told us of the 18th century At Episcopal Hospital we heard Dr. Kay tell urine bottle: "You've made a slip, my darling of the sense of resistance as determined by the daughter. 1 see a bantling in your water." pleximeter finger.

Dr. Kay. with inimitable grace ("the wrist must be fluid, the movement precise and rhythmic”) illustrates the proper method while honoring Leopold Auenbrugger. who first applied the technique after observing the success with which vintners marked the receding levels of the wine in their casks. He first noted the musical quality of the sound thus obtained while a student (and. doubtless, a medical student). It is from such revelations out of the past that the modern imbiber can take hope. Today’s glass of beer may be the fountainhead of medical progress tomorrow. As one becomes more adept at inspecting, palpating (against the patient's palpitations), percussing. and auscultating, it is gratifying to observe the dawn of respect in the eyes of suffering humanity. Never let the uncertainty you feel concerning the patient's status communicate itself to him. By your manner, you have convinced him of your infallibility, and it would be the violation of a sacred trust were you to permit him to suspect how desperately you wish you had a text of signs and symptoms beside you. 151THERAPEUTICS Essentially the culmination of the study of medicine is practicing treatment. Here again Temple is well represented among clinicians. Drs. Brown. Durant. Lansbury. Kolmer, and Farrar handle lecture material ably, convert pharmacology into dynamic, specific therapy. Building upon the foundation Dr. Livingston’s staff has for underclassmen, Brown’s men make doctors. Of these clinicians, closest to students, spending more hours each day with seniors is lanky, quiet 1 om Durant. Polled opinions among classmen place Dr. Durant tops in pleasing personality, perspicuity, pleasantness. All the remedies concerning cardiac and pulmonary diseases are his forte. Plump, practical, perspiring Charles Leonard Brown probably does more in any given day than any on the medical staff. Member of the Board for Revision of the U. S. Pharmacopeia. Professor of Medicine and Head'of the department here at Temple, he keeps in the midst of practical down-to-earth medicine. Like Dr. Brown, his course in therapeutics is solid, sober, soundly substantial, covering with amazing efficiency innumerable aspects of modern treatment of disease. BIOTHERAPY AND CHEMOTHERAPY First experience of many students with clinical medicine was through melodramatic, earnest Professor John A. Kolmer. Speaking from the floor of the Erny Amphitheatre in those early days, the serious, rhetorical Kolmer dwelt on matters biochemic, diagnostic, therapeutic, leavening his account with some basic facts bluntly put. Freshmen at that time were astonished, amused at the high-sounding method of presentation; were attentive, grateful for their first glimpse of medicine and patients. Later the students become accustomed to the somewhat In allergy clinic: skin and scratch testing and therapeutics with Dr. Louis Tuft. A patient with a keloid on his chest finds his way into medical clinic to be examined by Dr. Solotf with Thompson and Umlauf. Dr. Weiss warns against over-zealous psychiatric diagnosis.histrionic delivery, learn to discount the dramatics, get at the patient’s trouble. Kolmer stresses the bio- and chemotherapeutic angle of treatment; and is listened to. Truly an authority, he has much to give students. In the third and fourth years, upperclassmen again meet Dr. Kolmer. Unless one sits underneath the amplifier in Room 502, these lectures in advanced therapeutics arc practical, extensive, worth hearing. Only occasionally docs he slip into the morass of pompousness. Backed by years of experience in his field. Kolmer has a wealth of anecdote and story to fit each disease; can give good emphasis to even the therapeutic rarities. “This heart should weigh about 575 gms " Clinical pathological conference Tuesday at 4 P M. "I’ve been having this done for 14 years. Doc.” Buerger clinic. Bedside medicine with Dr. Jchn Lansbury. Dr. Cohen asks Caldwell if he hears rales. Brensinger wonders. DISEASES OF THE CHEST Weekly lectures on tuberculosis bring Dr. A. J. Cohen before third-year men. An authority of repute in his own right. Cohen is nevertheless mild of manner, unassuming. I o students this comes as a pleasant change from other lecturers. From an occasional consultation with a piece of paper, he puts forth facts on all aspects of tuberculosis . . . the high index of suspicion, survey of the patient’s family, benefits of a sanitoiium. etc. Biggest thing students learn is to suspect tuberculosis any and everywhere; next biggest is their healthy doubt of ordinary methods of diagnosis. Confides Cohen: "Let me tell you students, there is no man that can make the diagnostic batting average of the X-ray and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!’’ So we heard that the sedimentation rate is unreliable, the stethoscope not acute enough, the Mantoux test not specific enough to pick up the cases we should. Students thank Dr. Cohen for his frankness, admire his boldness, are astounded at his brashness in asking in the final to "Write all you know about tuberculosis." "Either he isn't very optimistic." relates one junior, "or else he doesn’t read the exams at all.”LECTURES Clearly the basis for all work at the bedside are these lectures in medicine that come "too late with too little.” By the fourth year, even the third year, students have completely plowed the ground here covered. Unfortunately. the previous plowing has been partial, spotty, the facts learned, unsound, controversial. So Dr. Weiss’ lectures on renal disease are an anti-climax. Dr. Lans-bury's notes on peptic ulcer an unconvincing letdown after surgery’s influence. Irreplaceable, however, arc lectures on the medical conditions of the gastro-intestinal tract by able master of the incisive wit. Dr. Lansbury. Erudite, irrasciblc. exponent of the well-turned phrase, he kindly but thoroughly dispels with chosen sarcasm the boogies of internal medicine. The class spent many enjoyable hours listening to his lectures. Had they been earlier in students' careers they would have been more pertinent. Not to be omitted are Dr. Hugo Roessler’s memorable lectures on cardiology. Deliberate, imperturbable Hugo gives forth in droll, colorful speech his thoughts on cardiac symptomatology and its significance. Amiable, friendly Dr. George Farrar hides beneath an abashed manner an astute mind, capable of careful analysis. Students felt that by understating important points he may not give proper emphasis to them. His lectures, however, have meat in them supply good knowledge of the anemias. At the Jewish Hospital Dr. Doane discourses on dicoumarin. heparin and lantocide-C. The juniors hear of blue eyes and long ears from Dr. Farrar. Hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy ? CONFERENCES All medical students know the proof of a diagnostician’s pudding is in the autopsy. There distinguished diagnosticians are proved dunces, less clever men closer. Post-mortems are as near to final authority as students care to come; only Deity can be more right. So each week seniors arc put to the test, given protocols and histories of cases, told to diagnose them. Each week illustrious members of the staff show how mistaken even seniors can be. An example: startled, stunned students heard that 100 per cent they had mistaken a case of glioblastoma multiforme for tuberculous meningitis. Small consolation was the fact that faculty men were on the wrong side of the fence with them. Dr. Brown handles the diagnostic end. proves repeatedly to seniors his remarkable diagnostic acuity. Foxy Konzelmann dispassionately cuts down professor and students alike on occasion with attested autopsy findings. Of some value to students is the P. G. H. session with Dr. Thomas Klein, but mostly so to those who are “called down.” 154CLINICS Students have gathered like Quakers to a town meeting, repeatedly, continually, through their last three years. Amphitheatre sessions provide opportunity for the whole class to observe, listen to the examiner going over a patient. I o some men, the patient provides a good opportunity to show the overt signs of disease on the personality as well as the body; to others the patient might as well not come in. Staff members alternate in bringing cases to the amphitheatre. launching from them into discussions of diagnosis and therapy. Students learn as much from these hours as from the more formal lectures; all that's learned not finding its way to their notebooks. Dr. Lansbury's by-now famous clinics on the arthri-tides, his cases of gout, are on record as top billing. Durant’s patients, with cardiac abnormalities, are always well worked-up, thoughtfully given. Dr. Farrar brings many examples of blood dyscrasias to us; in his self-depreciating manner gives many pertinent points. Most frequent, object of most controversy, arc those clinics conducted by Dr. Soloff. Acute clinician, young Dr. Soloff's lectures are crammed with good material, valuable hints, diagnostic aids. CLERKSHIPS "A good doctor is recognized not by what he knows, but by what he docs.” So students in their clerkships learn by doing. Juniors get their first taste of patient-doctor relationship when they are given cases to work up have individual sessions at the bedside. By the time they have rotated through all the services they are almost seniors, are impressed by what will be expected of them next year. Somehow the gap between having the diagnosis discussed and making it on your own has never seemed so wide. Seniors on ward service are so busy from the first day on. spend spare time griping at their overburdening work so fervently, that they find no time to be apprehensive of the task. Blithely they step in where wiser men tread with care. Miss Brigman has a way of seeing they are kept busy. Some seniors, with three histories, physicals and lab studies to do on Saturday afternoon, have been known to wonder at it all. Somewhere there seems to be a discrepancy between the value of "giving every student experience with a patient” and "giving every patient a blood count and urinalysis.” The shift in viewpoint is important, say seniors. The rest of the senior year students rotate in the outpatient clinics, gain appreciated and worthwhile experience. This work few students care to miss. 155 "It is not so. is it not." says Dr. Klein to Parrott. Miss Spearing teaches rapid, accurate blood diagnosis in the student lab. Two busy senior clerks.DR. W. WAYNE BABCOCK. A M.. M.D.. LL D . F.A.C.S. Professor of Surgery and Clinical Surgery Medical students go forth from school to be general practitioners or surgeons, according to their bents, but each can be no better than his training. Teaching and training are of prime importance to any group of future doctors— especially surgeons. Singularly gifted, fortunate in this aspect are those of Temple Medical. Few students can boast with such righteous pride of their surgical staffs. Few groups can be gathered under one roof to compare with their experience. That this is no mere boast witness our “chief.” W. Wayne Babcock. A familiar spectacle to sophomores and seniors alike in his "grand rounds” made once a day. “Babby” spryly maintains a schedule of work that exhausts lesser (and younger) men. At eight A. M. on Monday mornings he conducts lecture-quizzes for juniors and seniors, at nine can be found tackling a proctosigmoidectomy, perhaps by twelve a gallbladder removal: invariably no halt for lunch, right on through the afternoon with operations. Indeed, we wonder when he meets patients before they appear on the table. An old-timer in years of experience. Dr. Babcock is noted in the professional world for pioneering in the use of spinal anesthesia, for the early use of steel wire sutures, for innumerable operations ingeniously devised, and for his “Textbook of Surgery.” Dr. Astley lays on hands. Dr. Burnett probes the diagnostic acumen of "the Club.”The "chief” discusses matters of controversy Dr. Giambalvo "takes it away." Tuesday afternoons. Youngish, blond Dr. Emory Burnett is perennially a student favorite. Caustic on occasion, not above a good fast joke to fit the situation. Dr. Burnett gives juniors a solid, thorough set of didactic lectures on general and regional surgery. "Putrid empyema,” we learn, ‘is as important a medical emergency as a hot appendix.” By a happy, though rare, coincidence of being at once a good physician and an equally good teacher. Dr. Burnett gets across perhaps more than any other professor in surgery. Sharing the burden of lectures with him is his able, young assistant. Dr. George Rosemond. Students regard this lanky, tanned southerner with the schoolboy’s face as one of the most promising of their teachers. His informal, accented lectures on the thoracic wall and pleura were complete. concise. Those who worked at the operating table with him liked him. Wednesday morning at eight in the junior year Dr. Burnett began the first of many conferences. Drawing on the immense amount of clinical material at Philadelphia General, cases were presented, accurately correlated with the week’s lectures. Seniors continued these conferences at Temple, became pardonably cocky by year’s end: asked needling questions, invariably got keen straightforward answers. Few courses made the The efficacy of the accident dispensary drug shelf is Dr. Zaborowski certifies a surgical diagnosis. vouched for by Dr. Leedom.transition from didactic lecture to clinical case so easily, so rapidly; in none was it more necessary to cover the field. It was affectionately known as the "Three Ring Circus.’’ Ring leader: Dr. W. A. Steel. Performers: contented and pleased patients. Seniors may well emulate some of the chuckling, chortling, charm of aged, spry Dr. Steel. His clinical conferences were entertaining, informal, instructive. Buerger’s cases were hurried into the amphitheater, paraded, questioned, whisked out in that length of time. An endless parade of tragic performers, displaying all the multiform costume of symptomatology in peripheral vascular disease. Swarthy, keen Dr. Giambalvo acted often as cohort with Dr. Steel. Students knew him as their tutor in former years—principles of surgery: inflammation, repair, suppuration, ulceration. Believer in learning by rote, having the stuff on your tongue’s end. blunt Dr. Giambalvo pounds it in. Not effusive. "Jim-Balvo" is nevertheless a student’s behind-the-scenes friend. Euphemistically, affectionately termed "Ghastly Astlcy.’’ Dr. G. Mason Astley is the hardest worker, most unsparing of himself of any on the staff. A bald, sober, soporific lecturer, a hernia hunter, doctor of the old school, is Astley. Dr. Steele remarks the difference between the normal and Buerqer's Auer sidesteps Dr. Coomb's change of pace Getting down to practical operating-room skills, juniors hear from Dr. J. N. Coombs. Small, garrulous Dr. Coombs expounds on aseptic techniques, suture materials, instruments, operating-room behavior. Juniors pay attention, for before long they arc to be standing beside him. assisting. Believe it or not. juniors become seniors; few feel any different. In surgery the transition is marked by class members appearing regularly to scrub up (interminably), to stand for hours beside the table holding retractors. Tenacity becomes a surgical virtue. Preceded by clerkships in the wards students can follow their cases, note the results of suggested diagnostic studies—see the cases on the table. Seniors, self-consciously casual, become acclimated to the tension and alertness that is second-nature in the operating room. Many marvel at the promptness with which the older men sec infractions of technique, sense persons near them without looking, catch seniors with their hands at their sides in sterile gowns. So students have come this far. For overall knowledge of surgical statistics, surgical diagnosis, and surgical therapeutics they thank Drs. Babcock and Burnett. For surgical methods, minor surgical procedures, and help in ' assists" they are grateful to Drs. Coombs and Caswell. 158NEUROLOGY ROD HEUROSURGERY Neurology to freshmen is the study of nerve distribution on the cadaver, a didactic discussion of sympathetic vs. parasympathetic nervous systems. Sophomores know substantially more, carry a working picture of innervation from physiology and pathology. Disease of the C. N. S. is first encountered in the junior year, there adequately and minutely analyzed. Seniors think of neurology at Temple as neuropathology taught to them by four men. Four different outlooks shape their understanding, direct their inquiry of clinical material. Able, likable Dr. Scott talks over neurosurgery . . makes it simple by keeping to example. case: cutting didactic material to the bone. His approach is scholarly, at the same time practical.

Professor and Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology OBSTETRICS MID GYflECOLOGY In few subjects does instructor’s personality play a more paramount part than in teaching obstetrics. Lucky in having top-rank men in this respect are Temple seniors. Montgomery. Ales-bury. Hobcrman, and Quindlen bring obstetrics into students’ lives so they'll never forget it. Duncan. Beecham. Forman, and Stewart do the same with gynecology. Scholarly, deliberate Dr. Montgomery has outlined an ambitious program for students, beginning from the moment they pass into the sophomore year. Soft-spoken Jimmy Quindlen is there waiting to instill the necessary preliminary jargon. obstetrical point of view; prepare the way with the mechanical details of labor. Juniors run smack into Dr. J. Marsh Ales-bury; arc astonished, pleased at his forthright attitude, chortle at his brash impertinences. More often than many modern clinicians Ales speaks clearly and he has strong opinions to offer on the whole held. He catches students' imagination, receives their admiration. "The Chief.” Dr. Thaddeus L. Montgomery, seniors find is just as they'd pictured the head of obstetrics. Serious, solemn, ever conscious of his position, he demands and receives everyone's respect. Mis lectures are slow, thoughtful, complete. Because of his aloofness students have been surprised to find a considerate, kind teacher in the "Chief.” Those intimate with him have always known him for that. "Of course, you'll find the actual customer a little more slippery." Dr. Reed promises. Bill and Eld mark the "lie."The main body of didactic obstetrical lectures is carried by Alcsbury with the able help of jolly, rotund Hobcrman. Between the two. rest assured, there is little left to the imagination. They delight in direct, straightforward accounting, do not submerge the facts in too great punctiliousness. But behind the occasional gaiety is a lot of earnest attention to good obstetrical management. Our hats off to these men. Junior year carries with it another experience in obstetrics even more startling than Ales and Hoby. "On Call Nights" serve the same stimulating effect. (Where were you when that primip delivered at 3:27 A. M.?) Seniors spend their days entirely in outpatient clinics, ward work or on outpatient delivery service. And many a tale they can tell of delirious delivery amidst turbulent turmoil—to put it mildly. Senior conferences were for polishing off fine points, succeeded in helping re-arrange our knowledge. Gynecology was not stinted in time or attention, receiving its full quota of lectures, conferences, clinics. Dr. Beecham can be heard quietly dissecting the patient s recent behavior, pointing toward some cool conclusions. Imperturbable, erudite Beecham in his smooth manner lectures to lackadaisical students, soon has them scribbling notes at high speed. Adroit, reasoning Dr. Forman is a prime example of a capable teacher. No believer in rote memory, he leads Seniors to see and arrive at their own conclusions by analysis of symptoms. Gyny is logical, sequential, meaningful. under his tutorage. Any senior missing the diagnosis of ruptured ectopic will have to answer to him. And remember the treatment of ectopic before, during. and after rupture? From these beginnings, from such teachers. Temple seniors can be confident that they have been given the best in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dud and "Post” obviously have urgent business elsewhere. "Leis” gleans an O. B. gem for that notebook, while Matty listens, and Dr. Montgomery conducts the ward walk Drs. Forman and Duncan critique the morning's "Gyne" problems. Dr. Reynolds demonstrates. Dr. Alesbury makes the whole thing orthodox. 161DR. WALDO E. NELSON. A B„ M.D.. Professor of Pediatrics PEDIATRICS Drawling, jut-jawed, is genial Waldo Nelson. Professor of Pediatrics. Standing with hands deep-thrust in pockets. Nelson impresses the scope and significance of pediatric practice on us all. He makes us feel, through a gruellingly paced junior and a more leisurely senior year, that pediatrics is nothing less than miniature medicine practiced with delicacy. Long will be remembered that series of junior lectures. Hour after hour Nelson narrates; hour after hour Anderson whips like a feminine ‘'spitfire’'. scarcely breathing from start to finish: card after card of notes accumulate until the stack becomes unwieldy. The medical student. who elbows his way forward to a front seat in 316, has learned to take his notes either (I) in optimistic scramble, or (2) in inaccurate scribble. Reason: Anderson's headlong haste. Junior clinics add a realistically practical foreground to the backdrop of words. It is one thing to hear about Mongolian idiots; quite another to have three presented in succession. It is a simple matter to academically rant about stools: more difficult to differentiate diapers of diabetes, dex-tro-maltosc. diarrhea. We still blush at our diagnosis of one case, including as it did all the possible lymphadenopathies. several surgical emergencies and a variety of pulmonary complications: final diagnosis: laryngitis and constipation. The practical application of didactic material was further achieved in the senior year in the Drs. Uthus and Tracey consider the light-Dr. Nelson will always have time for youth. hearted evidence.Saturday morning classes and the special pediatric conferences held in the X-ray museum. A constant procession of patients helped to nail down previously acquired book learning. Several rare birds preened their feathers: dystonia musculorum deformans, multiple congenital hemangiomata, pyocaneus meningitis, congenital ectodermal dysplasia. Perhaps the outstanding conference was one conducted by Dr. of the National Research Council. Intimately associated with the most recent work on penicillin, he presented the results to us in a striking array of graphic and statistical material. Other conferences were devoted to diarrhea, diabetes, convulsions, coma, tuberculosis and “Common Pediatric Problems.” These seminars were popular, were enthusiastically attended. Highlights: 'Andy’s” tireless efforts . . she seemed to go on day and night . . if she was speedy, severe, she was also concise, careful, constantly cautious.

She made a charming hostess, though the refreshments were in some ways wanting. An actual demonstration of the Kenny technique by R.N’.’s trained by the good Sister herself.

Said he: “She was very much on the defensive with the medical profession and would indignantly rebuff any suggestion of error in theories or practice.” The extensive use of penicillin in a case of pneumo-coccic meningitis. Unfortunately not successful; reason: complicating multiple brain abscesses. The source of the "knock" is mapped out by Dr. Anderson. Dr. Lucchesi points out the photographer to a young patient. The assurances of Dr. Bartram that no one expects you to remember this are not borne out by his own easy familiarity with the subject matter. Dr. Kendall and a senior section pause for a pediatric chat at Municipal Hospital.DR. JOHN ROYAL MOORE. A.B.. M.D.. F.A.C.S., I.C.S., Professor of Orthopedics ORTHOPEDICS Dr. John Royal Moore, muscular, vigorous exponent of the athletic life, is best known to us as the head of a busy orthopedic staff. In our junior year we were introduced to the high-strung. temperamental “Dinty" on Saturday mornings early. He had a name for being there early, for wanting complete attention. Juniors have a scries of orthopedic surgery lectures covering congenital abnormalities, osteomyelitis. chronic strain lesions, arc given the latest on treatment of tuberculosis of the bone, of osteogenic tumors. Clad only in scrub-suit and cap. Dr. Moore “performs in the pit”; realistically portrays each gait, each hobble produced by orthopedic problems. His quick command if attention wavers: “I want your attention here!" Off-scene contact with the Chief discloses an earnest if peremptory teacher, inclined to criticise, quick to help a student on matters orthopedic. Seniors begin serious study of fractures with didactic lectures on the ankle, metatarsal and os calcis fractures. Pott's, Dupuytren's. and Cotton's fractures become familiar I The Army boys perk up their ears at the account of “march fracture." By Dr. Moore's sponsorship, an afternoon was spent at the great sprawling Valley Forge General Army Hospital: priming on actual cases from the battlcfronts. noting elbow fractures from El Guettar. Maknassy and Fondouk. getting the facts about field medical service, the type of casualties from our mauling at the ill-fated Kas-serine Pass. Fracture care somehow becomes more important with the nearness of war.Corson discourses on anxiety hysteria while Dr. English thoughtfully agrees I he psychiatry clinic enjoys a case with Dr. Fried. PSYCHIfl RTY Capable, whimsical Dr. Gerald Pearson met us as freshmen, and took us from the oral stage through adolescence. “Now consider the case of the eleven-year-old girl with the pain in her side which was not appendicitis ...” We met this same little girl later, in junior pediatrics, but in the intetim, she had developed intractable eneu-resis. With Dr. Pearson, we found ourselves in a world of Ego. Superego, and Subconscious, which was colored by conflicts between instincts and environment. We listened aghast to tales concerning horrible infants whose only desire was to eat up their mothers. The following year. Dr. 0. S. English, accordionist and perennial host to the sophomores, announced that the Temple approach to psychiatry would be on a basis of Freudian psychoanalysis (by means of which the patient learns from himself, not from the analyst) rather than the psycho-biological approach, which does not place much emphasis on the first five years of life, and does not entirely accept the concept of the subconscious. Whereupon we were launched on the fascinating study of the common neuroses of children and adults. At the Philadelphia General Hospital, as juniors we saw a motley crew of manic depressives. paranoids, alcoholics, compulsives, and luetics: many hallucinated, some illusioncd. and others delusioned. Presenting our own cases, we attempted to manage them with the same degree of savoir faire displayed by the chief, but . . . DR. O. SPURGEON ENGLISH. M.D . Professor of PsychiatryDR. CARROLL S.

Unforgettable, too. was the dissertation on alopecia, during which several moth-eaten heads were discovered blushing where the roots used to be. To cheer those thus afflicted came the subtle statement that eunuchs usually have fine heads of hair. The most euphuistic description of disease was that of leukoderma colli, a cutaneous manifestation of syphilis; “. . . patches of depigmentation around the neck, like a string of pearls.” Tor a time, we were mildly discouraged at the depressed level of our dermatologic acumen; attempts to recall the clinical pictures of dermatoses we had never seen ended in a confused jumble of primary and secondary dermatological lesions: . . pinhead to pea-sized maculo- papulo-squamous rash, with occasional pustula-tion. induration, central clearing and imbricated silvery scales on the extensor surfaces.” Later, however, struggling to stay awake in stuffy “603,” we studied the excellent clinical material from Dr. Wright’s slide boxes, and with the help of Drs. Gequierre. Friedman. Niedel-man. and others, we were able to correlate, differentiate. and properly appreciate. "Uncomfortable, but not as bad as Spcnccr and Brown are exposed ... , . , . , . thedcntist sdrill says Dr. Wright. to a n,uy Problem. Arsphcnammc! Arsphenamme!Dr. Bird cheerfully draws a bead for the next shot. "Now this next case taught us all something." Dr Roesslcr supervises scrupulous attention to detail. ROENTGENOLOGY AND CARDIOLOGY Dr. I lanney led off with atomic weights, halfabsorption power per a defined thickness of target. and startling statements such as: "If A takes one hundred volts, and B is four centimeters thicker. B will require four hundred volts.” Dr. Chamberlain warned us about the tendency of diagnosticians to be lulled asleep by a negative X-ray. The interlobar fissures of the lungs were learned, forgotten, relearned, and. we hope, at last remembered. Beck’s sarcoid, cannon ball metastascs, the atalectasis of bronchogenic carcinoma. blocked bronchus, pvclo-venous return, pineal shift, and the greatest of these is Platy-basia. If an imaginary line be drawn from the top of the foramen magnum to the roof of the hard palate, and any part of a cervical vertebra be found above this, suspect Platybasia, but don’t call it Chamberlain's line. Dr. Arbuckle, with limited time at his disposal. chased us through the pathology of the gastro-intestinal tract in a rapid wave of peristalsis: gave us the essentials of urography in one hour, and delivered a valuable lecture on bone age. Dr. Bird appeared as his alternate. Master scholar, pseudo-cynical philosopher, and deliberate, logical lecturer. Dr. Hugo Roesslcr seldom failed to impress the point of his talks even upon the chronic slumberers. and so we learned much of "ze E. K. G. ahortic stenozees. and of ze venous poise in zc neck.” DR. W EDWARD CHAMBERLAIN. B A , M D. F.A.C.R . Professor of Radiology and RoentgenologyMIRESTHESIOLOGY DR. P. D. WOODBRIDGE. Projessor of Anesthesiology Early drugs used as analgesics included opium, cannabis, indica. mandrake, and alcohol, whatever that is. In 1842 a gentleman named Long, and several of his friends, indulged in what were popularly known as Ether frolics. Arguments as to whether Long or Morton deserves the credit for introducing inhalation anaesthesia usually revert to the story of the Garden of Eden (via Sir Humphrey Davy), where “God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam ..." and "In sorrow shall ye bring forth children.” Dr. Woodbridge presented us with a staggering list of references anacsthesiologic. and then delivered a clear and concise series of lectures. "The metabolic rate parallels the reflex activity. It is affected by hyperthyroidism, fever, pain, apprehension, atropine, pregnancy, sthenicity. hypothyroidism, anemia, shock, debility, obesity, narcotics, and anaesthetics. Cyclopropane combines low toxicity with good relaxation and excellent anaesthesia. In examining for anaesthetic risk in a prospective candidate for operation, the minimal considerations are: apprehension, reflex irritability, blood pressure, hemoglobin, and urinalysis. If the patient is fifty-five years or over, he is out of the grade one risk." The first cry of pain through the piimitive jungle was the first call for the anaesthesiologist. “Two snaps and you’re in the vertebral canal.” Fett inducts his first ether.Under Dr. Kimmel’s steady hand, the exact amount enters the eye. Dr. Lillie's happy family. OPHTHflUOLOGY Dr. Walter I. Lillie, after making it clearly understood that he who failed to spell ophthaL mology correctly would be in the army sooner than expected, switched off the lights and showed us the fundal vessels and adnexae (those little things the ophthalmologist uses to beat the other specialists to the diagnosis). There, are the vessels that we were to hunt for later in vain as we sighted along the patient's alac nasae looking for the disc margin. Although it took some of us quite a while to pigeonhole elusive terms like homonymous hemianopsia and cecocentral scotoma, we were inspired by the excellence of the teaching and the personalities of the teachers to the extent of storing many ophthalmologic essentials in our intracranial dcadspace. We heard of retrobulbar neuritis. an inflammatory state involving visual acuity which may afflict the unwary user of depilatories containing thallium acetate. If one was going to have glaucoma, it was better to have an acute case. Strangler Lewis married an eye. ear. nose and throat doctor after she got his wrestler’s trachoma under control. The philosophy of the inimitable Chinese was illustrated in the story of trachoma patients in a British labor battalion: as each Chinaman writhed on the ground from the pain induced by the copper sulfate crystals, his fellows behind him in line would howl in glee at his plight. Confucius may be proud. DR WALTER I. LILLIE. M.D.. M S.. FACS. Professor of OphthalmologyDR. MATTHEW S. ERSNER. M.D.. FACS.. Professor of Otology OTOLOGY “The round window is situated in the middle ear—did I tell you about the little bug that crept in and crept out? Maybe you would like better the Yodler’s dismay’?’’ Magnanimous Uncle Matty, recognizing certain of our shortcomings, assumed that we would permit much of his teaching to flow in one external auditory canal and out the other, without filtration: so he did us the kindness of selected repetition. “Any chronic suppurative ear should be regarded with suspicion. Any infection of the middle ear or eustachian tube is secondary. Mastoiditis should be operated when it cools off. Mastoiditis may have the following terminations or sequellae: resolution, thrombosis of the lateral sinus or cavernous sinus, septicemia, meningitis, chronic suppurative otitis media, osteomyelitis of diploic bone, embolism, facial palsy, osteitis of pneumatized bone, deafness, labyrinthitis, and petrositis.’’ In senior otology clinic, clad in traditional E. N. T. headgear, we struggled to keep the light beam in the ear speculum, secretly longing for the compact otoscope. Eventually, after disengaging our necks from positions of acquired torticollis. we found that if we turned the patient's head, we were even able to visualize Shrapnel’s membrane. Dr. Ersner goes into the temporo-petrcsal region. A perforated drum is shown by Dr. Rachlis in ear clinic.Dr. Davis' effective antispasmodic laughter and more laughter. Spear looks. Dr Davis anticipates a deviated septum. RHtnOLflRYflGOLOGY Kindly, jocular Dr. Ridpath gesticulated, cavorted, imitated and regaled in familiarizing us with his specialty. The most important function of the nose is breathing: we didn’t argue: one can’t smell unless one breathes. Adenoids can produce two dozen sundry signs and symptoms including enuresis. Sphenoid sinusitis, besides giving one an occipital headache, can cause plantar "archalgia.” Most amazing was the information that cauterizing the sex areas at the posterior of the inferior and middle meatuses may cure dysmenorrhea. Dr. Davis warned us not to be tonsil snatchers or to be so precocious as to remove the ychudian adenoids of an adult. L-ater we were given a tidy list of indications for tonsillectomy; told that the snare was rapidly becoming a museum piece, since the la Force tonsillotomc. an ingeniously constructed guillotine which combines the functions of scalpel, hemostatic forceps and tongue depressor, was the instrument of choice . . if we knew how to use all the little screws and levers. We met the post-nasal pack in senior clinic one afternoon, shortly met it again in the final examination. I he Caldwell-Luc operation appeared to be a kind of skilled carpentry which made sleep in the rear of the amphitheatre impossible. In clinic we learned that it is better to blow the nasal discharge into a handkerchief than into the face of the intrepid examiner, that adjusting a head mirror requires imagination. Dr. Davis displayed his pet personal spur: lone symptom, sneezing. DR ROBERT F RIDPATH. MD.S:D.FACS. Profcsior of RhinolaryngologyDR. CHEVALIER L. JACKSON. B A . M.D.. M.Sc.. F.A.C.S.. Professor of Broncho-esophagology BROnCHO-ESOPHflGOLOGY Most of us had heard that Temple boasted of renowned Dr. Jackson years before we became students of gross anatomy. We learned that perseverance. hard work and ambidexterity were factors responsible for success in this field, as well as an appreciation for art. especially shades of color. Seeking only foreign bodies. Ca and the like in the lower respiratory tract and the esophagus, the Jacksons have somehow caught the fancy of the general public. Before the screen in ‘'603” we watched the drama that has characterized the careers of Drs. Chevalier Jackson, senior and junior, unfold. The younger Dr. Jackson, aided by resident Dr. Charles Norris, explained the symptamatology and diagnosis of foreign bodies in the respiratory and food passages; the indications for bronchoscopy; the mechanism of hoarseness; the tragedy of an improperly performed tracheotomy. To help those afflicted with an “A” deficiency, he passed out lucid syllabi on the subject of the day. We did not have the benefit of this course during our senior year, a disappointment to many, but we were free to watch the Bronchoscopic Clinic in action on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Some of us who went to a recent Babcock Surgical Society meeting enjoyed Dr. Jackson s talk on laryngectomy and the elderly man who had learned how to talk sans larynx by burping swallowed air. This man is now eleven years past his laryngectomy for Ca and is an enthusiastic orthenician for those without a noise-maker. Chief asset in Bronchoscopy is bimanual dexterity combined with the patience of Job. Assorted scrap from the tracheae and esophagi of Dr. Jackson's innumerable well-wishers. Dr. Norris passes one.Up a twisted path with Dr. Fretz. Dr. McCrea puts color into cystoscopic photography. UROLOGY Always encouraging to the neophyte. Dr. Thomas assured us that we would have plenty of time for a post-graduate study of urology, because during the early days, our “practice” would come in only twice a week. The most common symptom of disease of the urinary tract is pollakiuria. or frequency of urination. (This makes of life a series of button-ings and unbuttonings.) Pain, hematuria, and pyuria are next in order. The postoperative treatment of adult circumcision includes bromides, ice bag. and instructions to read the lamentations of Ezekiel. If a patient comes into your office and says. "Doc. I want to talk to you about something.” begin to hunt for the Gram stain. A difficult patient is that one who fails to return for a second visit. “If I've got something. I don’t want to know about it.” Talk to the patient about his disease, not his morals; he already knows about them. If. three weeks or so after an acute Neisserian urethritis, a patient is strolling down Chestnut Street, and is seized with a severe pain, think of an acute epididymitis, and follow with a Block-ley bandage (as historic a therapeutic measure as any in Philadelphia). Of special interest recently have been Dr. Lowrain McCrca’s cystoscopic photography exhibits. Much credit is due this modest pioneer who. at his personal expense, has achieved such superlative results in urological research. DR. W. HERSEY THOMAS. B A . M.D.. F.A.C.S.. Professor of UrologyDR. HARRY E. BACON. B.S.. M.D.. F.A.C.S.. F.I.C.S.. F.A.C.P.S., Professor and Head of Department of Proctology PROCTOLOGY "In this course we will consider the diseases of the anus, rectum, and sigmoid colon. To supplement classroom discussion, there will be a certain amount of outside reading. Would you rather write a weekly essay or be subject to occasional examination?" We would rather be subjected. After this somewhat ominous introduction. Dr. Harry E. Bacon, assisted by Drs. Schneider. Eisenberg. and Benedict, gave us a well-oriented series of discourses on matters ano-rectal and sigmoidal. "Above all, ladies and gentlemen, thoroughness and gentleness are criteria in proctologic examination. Peek before you poke, then get to the bottom of things. General symptoms are pain, protrusion, itching, change in bowel habit, and bleeding. The most painful condition in or around the rectum is fissure in ano. The rectal mucosa of chronic cascara sagradians has a snakeskin appearance. Pruitis ani is a symptom, not a disease. It is a syndrome embodying an alteration in anal and perianal skin due to irritation of the peripheral nerve endings, and caused by some local or systemic disease.” A big day on the hospital proctologic service begins with the rapidly disseminated news flash that the "chief” is going to do an "over and under.” the famed Bacon-Babcock abdominoperineal proctosigmoidectomy. Hemorrhoids are deftly excised by Dr. Schneider. The perineo-abdominal procto-sigmoidcctomy is Dr. Bacon's classic.FRESHMEN Front Row. left to right: H. S- Anhalt. J. W. Annand. J. A. Anthony. A. A.

Navy To all ircrr.fcers of the graduating class of Temple University Medical School, 1 wish to send my heartiest congratulations and best wishes. To the Navy men of the class. I have a special message of welcome into the Medical Corps. I know you are proud to be prospective naval medical officers and are impatient to enter upon active duty. The heroism and sacrifices of this corps in the present struggle will challenge you to give your best in service to your country. Moreover, you have the splendid record of your Temple alumni to perpetuate, for many of them are serving with distinction in the Armed Forces. Yours is one of more than three score approved medical schools which arc participating in the Navy’s V-12 program. Temple is, through you. doing its part in helping to insure a steady flow of medical officers into the Naval Service. More than 5,000 medical students are now enrolled in the Navy’s V-12 program. Most of you in the graduating class are in the unusual position of beginning your medical careers in military practice and going thereafter into civilian practice, quite the opposite of the usual procedure. In my judgment, you have a unique privilege. I feel that your military experience will benefit you professionally and spiritually. You will obtain a perspective and an insight into human values enjoyed by the few. To those who will launch careers in civil life. I would give this message: Your contribution is potentially no less essential than that of the doctor in uniform. Serve where you are needed most and adhere to the noble spirit of your Hippocratic oath. In so doing, you will ever be a credit to your alma mater and your country. Very truly yours. Ross T. Me Inti re. Rear Admiral (M. C.) Surgeon General. U. S. Navy Official V. S. iYa-y photo {r d,■ It  «■»MY IHEDICIHE A Message from the Surgeon General of the U. S. Army To Members of the Class of 1943, Temple University Medical School: It is encouraging to learn that 95 per cent of the medical students of Temple University this year arc preparing to serve their country as they can serve it best as medical men with the Armed Services. At no time in history has our nation been faced with the need confronting it today for medical skill to maintain health and to care for our wounded soldiers. And at no previous time has a greater opportunity been offered to young physicians and surgeons. We are fighting today on land and sea. in the air overhead and under the waters of every ocean. We are fighting against every virus, germ and parasite known to man in every climate and in most of the countries of the world. 1 o the ever increasing honor of our profession we are meeting the challenge of every force of destruction let loose on the earth today. The Army Medical Corps and the Navy Medical Corps have already hung up an enviable record in the conquest of disease and the saving of lives of the wounded. The Four Horsemen no longer inspire terror in the hearts of American soldiers who know- that their chances of dying arc far less than in any previous war. We are not satisfied nor complacent over that record. It can and will be bettered and you members of the Temple University Medical School Class of 1943 and those who follow you are among those destined to better it. There are few parades, few medals and decorations and little glory for medical men in war. But there is in it an undying satisfaction and stimulating pride in knowing that you serve on the life-saving side of w'ar and have a share in preserving the lives of thousands of men who would die but for your skill.

Need we mention the stories of “Mose” Burnett. Beta Omicron of Alpha Kappa Kappa started its life on May 7. 1932 when a group called the 'Crescent Club’’ with the leadership of Dr. Burnett was initiated as Alpha Kappa Kappa’s at the Epsilon Chapter of Jefferson Medical College. Under the guidance of enthusiastic Dr. Chamberlain, District Deputy. Beta Omicron has benefited socially and financially. Things to remember always are the Tri-chapter Dance, the Saturday night “socials,” bull sessions in second floor front. Speaking of the war, “Shorty” Giesen says. “We will contribute our particular knowledge and skill to the potent bacteriocide which is already in the process of eliminating the purulent exudate emanating from Berlin and Tokyo, a double foci which has infected the vital organs of freedom.”MEMBERS FACULTY W.

Juniors and Seniors of Phi Beta.Phi Beta Pi Medical Fraternity dates its beginning from March 10. 1891. when at the University of Western Pennsylvania, now the University of Pittsburgh, the original charter was drawn up. From this beginning the fraternity spread to medical schools throughout the country and at present represents an organization of over forty active chapters. Beta Eta was organized in 1934 and as such constitutes a merger between Omega Upsilon Phi and Phi Beta Pi. Previous to this date, the organization at Temple constituted the Upsilon Chapter of Omega Upsilon Phi. In Beta Eta’s short period of existence, the chapter has grown and now claims greater strength than in any other previous year. Beta Eta is not only proud of its members but claims a Faculty and Alumni Association second to none. On July 10. Drs. John B. Bart ram. FI. L. Bottomley. John Lansbury, and Earle H. Spaulding were placed on the roll of Phi Betes when, at a special faculty and active chapter banquet, these men were initiated. Under able leadership the chapter house at 3327 North 16th Street proved to be a "hive of activity." Not only was midnight oil burned there in the search for knowledge but also for the fostering of fraternal friendship. In a newly decorated party room.

Foregathering of the member of Phi Chi. In 1910 Omega Upsilon Lambda was chartered as Theta Upsilon of Phi Chi. Since that time the local chapter has come a long way. with a present enrollment of 68 members. Under the able leadership of William Goodspeed the activities of the house have been most gratifying. We have had the good fortune in having had a number of seminars conducted by several prominent faculty members as well as men from other institutions. We feel sure that we shall all remember with fond recollections the good times that we have enjoyed as members together, especially the Saturday night beer parties. Tri-chapter dances, and even the long bull sessions at which we tried to contemplate what the services would do next now that we all belonged to either the Army or the Navy. However, in the midst of the present world strife Phi Chi continues to uphold the ideals upon which it was founded. We salute those who have gone before us, encourage those who arc about to begin their careers, and extend a hand of fellowship and brotherly love to those who remain as active members.

Ususal post-prandial activities.PHI DELIA EPSILOD, SIGfllfl Since its founding thirty-nine years ago at Cornell University, Phi Delta Epsilon has enjoyed a steady growth until today it has sixty-two active chapters in the United States, and ranks with the larger national medical fraternities. The activities of Sigma (established at Temple in 1917) center in the chapter house at 1033 Spruce Street. On Saturday nights, the cares of the week are forgotten, in the pleasure of mingling with the members of the other chapters at the regular weekly parties. I he social program traditionally ranges from stag sessions to several dances and banquets given throughout the year. But the fun and frivolity of fraternity life is not allowed to overshadow the primary purpose of the members to develop as good physicians. Discussions, lectures and symposia on medical topics of current interest have been conducted by members, graduates, and prominent specialists representing many branches of medical thought. And with virtually the entire membership of the fraternity in the uniform of our country, more thought and discussions on military medical topics have been the rule.

The newly renovated fraternity house at 3232 North 16th Street is the home of fifteen members. The balance of the members maintain close contact largely through the boarding club. Neese serve a hot one to Casey. Liebler cries in his mug over Baier's joke Conrad leads the Phi Rho choristers Williams trumps one. Relaxation after the arduous schedule of the day comes after the evening meal when everyone behooves himself to retire to the game room. Darts, table tennis, bridge and the ever-amusing bull sessions arc enjoyed until the time for study. Athletically minded, the boys of Phi Rho are justly proud of their record of a clean sweep in the interfraternity softball league. Monthly parties keep the social side of our fraternity life alive but the climax is reached in the annual tri-chapter dance at a downtown hotel. An annual fraternity picnic has lately been added to the social program. Close faculty contact prevails with frequent visits by many of our faculty members, at which times phases of medicine not told in the classroom are informally discussed and many enlightening aspects of the intricacies of medical practice are gained. The portals leading into the spacious, lawn-surrounded. single, graystone house are open to incoming freshmen, as arc those of the other fraternities. Phi Rho promotes interfraternity socials on Saturday evenings to aid in building the fraternity spirit at TempleTHE BABCOCK HOnORARY SURGICHL SOCIETY The society, founded thirty-six years ago by a group of students who wished to honor Dr. Babcock, is the only student surgical society in the United States whose patron is still engaged in active practice. Dr. William Steel has been the president of the society since its inception; Dr. Emich has for many years past attended to its needs and been the fountainhead of its most enjoyable meetings. Candidates are chosen by the faculty and student members on the basis of personality, character, and scholastic standing. At the meetings, papers prepared by the student members or guests are read and discussed, and in this way a close touch is maintained with more recent trends in surgery, and other phases of medicine. Speakers from our own faculty, as well as those invited from other institutions, attend these meetings, and address the society. The gatherings conclude, as a rule with informal discussions between students and their guests over refreshments. Each year it has been the custom to have two principal gatherings, one a picnic, at which faculty and student members meet one another on an entirely informal footing; the other a banquet at which the new members are officially presented to the patron.

BUT NEVER GROW OLD” "Backward, turn backward. Oh Time in your flight,” Make these good nurses here young for tonight; Lift from their shoulders the burdens they bear— Give back to them now their once bonnic brown hair Let the blushes of youth paint their cheeks as of yore. E’er they learned how to blush with their paint from the store! Twas thus we once knew them, e’er age crept apace. Oh Time, bring them back with but smiles on the face Tis a big undertaking, no doubt you arc right. But try it once, anyhow, just for tonight. Here’s a chance for you now. show us what you can do. These old Nightingale girls have a challenge for you! So kiss from their foreheads all furrows of care— Some contract. 1 grant you. but do not despair. For in spite of the years, with their wrinkles forsooth. You'll find ’ncath it all. the heart-throbs of youth. "What is age but a dream, and the gray hairs that gleam. But the sunbeams that linger from life's early morn— Happy hearts arc as young as the day they were born.” Then backward, turn backward, you Old Tyrant Time. Don't embarrass young nurses just reaching their prime! And even some doctors would smile with delight, If you'd back up a little for them, in your flight; We’d not ask you for much- -just a fifty or so Half a hundred's not long, as years come and go.— Have a heart, and be merciful, just to please us. And cut that remorseless big hurry and fuss! Tear down your old calendar, hide it from sight. Don't try with your figures to fill us with fright; Your scores and your decades, like birthdays, are jokes— Away with such nonsense, growing old's all a hoax! Ageing nurses? Not These! They've turned a new page, And fain would forget all the foibles of age; Just look at them there, as they laugh and grow fat— No place for despair 'mongst youngsters like that! So here’s to our NURSES, and the u or ( they have done. And here's to the SCHOOL, where that work was begun— May both School and Alumnae, as their futures unfold. Keep on in their growing. BUT NEVER GROW OLD. 202i T E ID P L E U n I V E R S I T Y HOSPITALThe meager accounts coming to us from all over the globe show us the real heroism of our army and navy nurses. No imagination can take us to some of the places they arc. Of those taken prisoners we know almost nothing. The sufferings of those on Bataan and Corrcgidor prove the value of their training to protect themselves as soldiers, and to nurse expertly through every possible war emergency. During our three years at Temple we have developed intellectually, morally and physically. Our task will be to help make America a healthy nation and keep it so. since the health of military forces in modern warfare is inseparable from that of civilian populations. Our decision as to where we will serve in this horrible conflict must soon be made. When in the future we turn back to view these years, may this, the 1943 edition of The Skull, aid in recalling the forgotten joys, friendships and experiences in our training. R. GrossBorn at Montrose, Pa., and a graduate of Howard Hospital. Miss Loftus brings to Temple a vast experience in administrative nursing. She has been operating room supervisor at Howard Hospital, and later at Columbia Hospital in Pittsburgh, Assistant Directress of Nurses at Callin-ger Hospital in Washington. D. C.. Directress of Nurses at Howard Hospital until it merged with the Graduate Hospital of Philadelphia. Directress of Nurses at Mt. Sinai Hospital for five years, following which she served as Superintendent for five years, and Directress of Nurses at the Doctors Hospital in Washington. D. C.. before coming to Temple in August. 1942. Although it is not within a mere student’s province to play “peeping Tom”—we have done a bit of snooping and have discovered, on good authority, that Miss Loftus enjoys the theatre, playing bridge and cooking. We also learn she is something of a globe trotter, having made several trips to Europe, and travelled extensively in this country. It was likewise confided that her chief interest in life is young people. This fact, however, was not news, for our relations with Miss Loftus have been friendly and direct. We have found her understanding and cooperative, always willing to lend a sympathetic ear to student problems. It is with sincere gratitude and appreciation for her ceaseless efforts to obtain improved standards in the School of Nursing and student welfare that we, the Class of 1944. dedicate this section of The Skull to Miss Loftus.

We might have known it’s Berwick’s stepchild, “Reds.” as she was originally from Philly. This miss is a rare and interesting combination of beautiful red hair, brown eyes and a winning smile which gives her a personality all herown. Her chief interest, ambition, present and future, arc “Clem.” (Mis hair is red. too.) She says what she thinks and does what she pleases and you never know what to expect next it’s usually the unexpected. She's the pepper in our chili and cream in our coffee when it comes to pleasure, so we know now that nursing isn’t all work and no play. SARAH ELIZABETH BRIDGES Akron. Ohio “Sally” crossed the border in 1941 and came to learn nursing at Temple University Hospital. She is quite precise in all she does and is very systematic, which all goes to make a good nurse. She loves sardines like a duck loves water and takes many ribbings from her neighbors, but only replies with her tantalizing smile. Sally’s voice was always the loudest and loveliest at 6:30 A. M. chapel as we drowsily wondered how she did it. Her final goal, however, is to persuade her classmates to let her retire some night at 9 o’clock. Sally will probably join the Navy after graduation, so look out you gobs! 210A Round heart is the life of the flesh. DOROTHY JEAN BOULDIN Irwin. Pa. From the grassy hillsides of Irwin comes our "Jeanie” whose biggest problem is keeping her shoes as white as "Eddie’s.” With eyes as sparkling as the diamond she wears on her left hand, you never know if she is laughing at or with you. She shows loyalty to all and proves it when a confided secret never goes further. Jean loves children and proved her worth in nursery, which she loves. The crystal gazer tells us that she will probably marry a captain in Uncle Sam's Army. We know that all she has learned at Temple University Hospital has not been in vain. ANN CHIAKO Moosic, Pa. Of quiet manner and immaculate grooming "Chiako is the "efficiency plus” member of our class. In choosing Temple to further her education Moosic’s loss became our gain for here we recognize Ann as a cooperative and able worker and a true friend. In the O. R. we find Ann at the height of her glory so it’s a natural tendency that for her future work she should show a preference toward surgical assisting. Ann's secret desire is to some day attend Duke University to obtain her B.S. in nursing . . . Knowing Ann as we do. we feel certain that her dreams of today will be tomorrow’s realities. 211Determination is the battery that commands every road of life. JENNIE N. CIMBALUK Philadelphia, Pa. Jennie is one of the few members of our class who hails from "Philly” itself. Those who know Jennie best are well aware of the fact that her haughty and care-free manner serves as a thin veneer for a quiet, dignified and more or less pensive nature. Jennie’s hobbies are innumerable. Her fondness for music can only be surpassed by the interest she shows in her hospital work. Among other hobbies are reading and record collecting. As a specialty Jennie turns to foreign duty—with a preference of nursing in Russia or China and with emphasis on Russia. BETTY COOK Lock Haven, Pa. Oop! there goes "Cookie” again. I wonder if she's in trouble or if she’s just trying to achieve something for our class—being President is almost a full time job. Cookie is a blond, green-eyed lass from Lock Haven. Pa. She attended Lock Haven State Teachers’ College with the intention of being a school marm. She is the "Mr. Anthony” of the class—always willing to listen to the woes and trials of her friends. Due to her kind, generous nature, she wants to continue her education and perhaps be a Directress of Nurses (?). or maybe she likes Navy Blue. 212God looks only to the pure, not to the full hand . CHOLENA CURTISS Penn Yak. N. Y. Of noble deeds and friendly mien, there is none more gracious than Cholena. This petite minister's daughter was born in Waynesboro. Ohio. Cholena's humanism and genuine interest in the welfare of people can be appreciated in the fine work she has done, teaching a children's class in Sunday School before entering training, choosing nursing as a profession so that she can better accomplish this. “Cholly” likes good music, books and can play a “nip-and-tuck” game of tennis. She hopes to express her talent for teaching, majoring in Materia Mcdica. We are confident she will be instrumental in the training of good nurses. JULIA JANE DI VINCENZO Downingtown. Pa. “Judy” hails from Downingtown. where history was made. At Temple, we have come to know Judy as an enthusiastic student. capable and dependable nurse and loyal friend. Her capacity for enjoying life is infinite. One may depend upon her discovering the comic side of life's little tragedies. For Judy, obstetrics is to nursing as cream to coffee! -delivery room being her specialty. Music, books and swimming are among Judy's hobbies, her pet diversion— a midnight gabfest. where ready wit serves her well. She is treasurer of Student Council and business manager of the Skull. We feel Judy will outdo the forefathers—and make some history on her own. 213Some people grow under responnibility, others merely swell. MARIAN ALICE EDWARDS COALDALE. Pa. Petite, charming "Eddie” is Coaldale's contribution to Temple University Hospital. Although always a social success, behind those laughing green eyes (which are anything but cool and limpid} lies a deep sincerity and earnestness. She especially likes internal medicine but is quite capable in all fields. Eddie is very fond of music and incidentally has quite a lovely voice. Her biggest problem is gaining weight and keeping it. We have highest hopes for Eddie’s future and whether it be nursing or homemaking, we know that it will be one hilarious round of fun. LUCY FELICIANI Old Forge. Pa. Lucy was a friendly classmate with a jolly disposition at all times, also definite in her ways. Her pastime is spent in collecting poetry and quotations. "Felice.” as she was often called, made her mark in obstetrics, although she does not intend to specialize in that field as she will probably enter the Army Nurses' Corps. She takes great pride in having three brothers in the Marines and one known to us as "Joe” in the Army. Lucy seems to be quite the domestic girl—wearing a large variety of self-designed clothes. Felice has a date with Cupid in the future and here’s wishing her all the luck in the world. 214Concentrate, though your cont-tails be on fire. ADA MAE FISHER Selinsgrove. Pa. Ah! Now we come to one of the happy-go-lucky girls of our class, one who served as our secretary. Among a group of girls she is sure to be the cause of most of the merriment with her witty sayings. Ada’s hobby is reading and although studying is easy for her. it’s not Fisher’s line. No greater hospitality can be found anywhere than at Ada’s home. Of course you’ll not be counted as a guest, but as one of the family. She seems to like the obstetrical department most but will succeed in anything she attempts. Her future remains unplanned. HELEN LOUISE GROSS Shinglehouse. Pa. Unassuming and generous with a slight dash of temperamentality add up to make Helen a vital member of our class. As a favorite pastime we have a toss up between eating and writing long letters to a certain person somewhere in the Atlantic. With an interest in obstetrics and pediatrics and a fondness for home life, we predict for Helen a successful career, a happy marriage, and a cuddly little daughter whose name (after much contemplation and planning) shall be Wanda. With such a future to look forward to. who could wish for anything more? 215Patient, persistent effort is often the price of success. RE!DA JANE GROSS Narvon, Pa. Ambitious, persistent, practical and still more ambitious—these words hardly do justice to the personality who as editor-in-chief of the year book is largely responsible for its success. Although quiet and somewhat shy. Reida is the "go-getter" of our class. Rcida takes pride in being quite a philatelist. Her skill in hair-cutting has resulted in many of us sporting "Reida’s extra-special feather-cuts.” "Dutch,” coming from the farm, is a lover of outdoor life, especially horseback riding, hunting, and hiking. Reida hopes to attain a higher goal than just an "R.N.” With her enthusiasm and stick-to-it-iveness, she’ll climb the steps to success. ANNE HARRIS McAooo. Pa. “Harris” was born in Lansford, Pa., and at the age of nine moved to McAdoo where she started treading the path of gaining knowledge. Temple has found her to be quite a little "hustler” in her work. Anne likes dancing and enjoys light classical music. She seems to be attracted to obstetrics, as steel is to a magnet, and considers taking a post-graduate course in that field. You will probably find her bark worse than her bite, for beneath a gruff exterior we discover a heart of gold. 216The soul Is dyed with the color of its leisure thoughts. F. PAULINE HOMA Arnold. Pa. Did you know that ‘‘Polly’' came to Eastern Pennsylvania to escape Pittsburgh's dirt? So she thought, until "Philly” also proved to have its odds (as well as ends). Polly’s acquaintance reveals a very secure ambition to be a conscientious member of her profession. She aims to excel. Her pleasant personality, interwoven with an “air of dignity.’’ has made Polly a friend of all. Leisure time is spent in reading and swimming. Her appreciation for good literature and good music helps her entertain herself as well as broaden her philosophy of life. WANDA ALYCIA JACZYNSKI Simpson, Pa. Quiet and reserved but always dependable “now don’t fret” Wanda can always “chip’ in when the wisecracks pass around. You should watch her ears perk up at the mere mention of Simpson. She shows a lot of interest in her work and is always willing to do her part in any activity. Wanda’s hobbies include eating, playing the accor-dian and walking. As for the future, until the right man comes along, she will probably stick to her career, which with her fine personality will without fail be a success. If you have not had the opportunity of knowing Wanda, it is now time for introductions. 217You may consider that nothin in the world is more excellent than friendship. INA LOIS JOHNSON Johnstown. Pa. First a smile, then a giggle and finally a hearty laugh, that’s our "Johnny’’ from Johnstown and mighty proud of it. She’s the gal we all steer clear of the end of the month, because Lois is our treasurer and she’s at our heels for class dues. Johnny has a strange hobby she loves to sit on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the people go by. To her men do not exist, just turn on some good music and give her a good book (with a box of chocolates) and she’s set for hours of pleasure. Lois hopes to study for her B.S. at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh. GERALDINE ALICE JONES Mount Carmel. Pa. “Gerry” is a hard worker and we feel sure this will help pave her way to success. Her enthusiasm for nursing can be equalled only by initiative shown in taking part in extra-curricular activities. We have discovered in her a born organizer. After two semesters at Susquehanna University. Gerry came to Temple where she served as vice-president of our class. She enjoys playing the piano, and like the proverbial postman goes for a walk when off duty. At the wee-small hours you might find Gerry indulging her passion for good mystery stories. Gerry will continue with her profession and hopes to complete work for her B.S. 218Understanding is the wealth of wealth. BETTE KELLOW Fort Lauderdale. Fla. "Bette.” who came to us originally from Perry Point. Md.. turned Rebel when her family recently moved to Fort Lauderdale. Fla. She is quite noted for receiving three-fourths of all the telephone calls at 1423. Buying new dresses and wearing earrings are among her pleasures. Bette contributes a lot to her work and likes it. A “long day” is usually put to good use with an occasional trip to Aberdeen. The Navy lies in Bette's future so here’s wishing her smooth sailing. MARY LOUISE KONOLIGE Bethlehem, Pa. Just as happy as a lark and always busy as a bee. Mary Louise has actually buzzed with activity since she entered Temple. Did you know of the time we all just envied “Connie” with her thirteen sisters?? Never a dull moment—Connie indulges her many hobbies by way of entertaining herself. Photography, dancing, swimming and shooting the breeze number among these. Connie has a secret ambition, so don’t tell a soul but we ll tell you she’d really like to sing with an orchestra—so. get those vocal cords in trim. 219Patience is the art of hopinK- SARAH RUTH KOSSACK Nickleville. Pa. As the old saying goes— “all good things come in small packages”—so we have “Sue.” She hails from Somcrton, the little farming district where bags are “pokes.” whcnceforth her family is now living out in the vicinity of Oil City. Her appearance is one of quietness and bashfulness, but these characteristics fluctuate into petite-ncss, fun-loving, and a pleasing personality. Although she is not one of the Russian Kos-sacks. she loves music and is an excellent pianist. Sue loves her work and comes off duty daily with a tale of some little incident. To Sue we wish health, happiness, and luck for a successful future. HELEN KURVACK Arnold. Pa. Coming to Philadelphia in search of larger fields, we know Helen is amply rewarded. Sincerity, understanding and skill mark her work. Always chic we consult her in what the well-dressed woman wears. Quiet, reserved, poised—though beneath lurks a merry sparkle. A regular outdoor girl, swimming and tennis rate tops, but the joy of life is "the dance.” Helen’s appreciation and execution of anything from lowly jive to dreamy waltz is the envy of all. As for the future—a third finger left hand has her tattooed. 220We employ the mind to rule, the body to serve. MARGARET M. KUTNEY Lansford. Pa. After that glorious time known as ' one’s high school days.” “Margie” cametoTemple where she expanded her scholastic ability as well as her ability in art—of which we are very proud. Nothing is too difficult if you attack it in the right way as Margie always does stick your nose right in it and hang on until your goal has been obtained. Kutney just loves to read making reading quite a beneficial hobby with only good literature flavored by a dash of fiction. May your kindness, ability, and willingness speed you on and success be yours. NELLIE JANE MacELHANEY Lewistown. Pa. This quiet little lass is the bookworm of our class—that is. she likes reading novels at bedtime. She likes to make new friends and always enjoys company; however, her favorite pastime is heated discussions — with her roommates. Nellie went about her work with great determination; happy-go-lucky and ever willing to be of assistance where called upon. We will always remember Nellie resting her eyes during lectures. Throughout training she seemed most happy in the nursery, this perhaps is because Nellie's chief ambition is to have a large family of her own some day. 221A useless life is only nn early death. ANNABEL RHETA MEYERS Ridcway, Pa. Annabel our truest blonde with blue eyes! Yes, she’s nearly a platinum. At Temple she is often seen, but frequently not heard. She enjoys living in the softer tones of life. Night duty seems to be Meyers' specialty, maybe some day some hospital will have the good fortune having her as a night supervisor. Annabel has no specific hobbies, but always finds some way to entertain herself. Perhaps we could call "havin’ fun" her main hobby. Of her ambitions we know little, but whatever she does we feel sure will prove successful. R. ELEANOR NELMS New Holland, Pa. "Onie” spent her childhood days in a little quiet town in Lancaster County. (Did you ever hear of Voganville?) After four years at New Holland High School she became a pleasant cog in the "Temple wheel.” lo us she's known as "the little one" who leaves a streak as she speeds down the hallways. Even with her peculiar little trot she gets her work done rapidly and is always looking for a chance to help someone else. Her life ambition is to become an airline hostess. With her kindness, cheery personality and ambition we feel sure that Onie will be a very successful hostess of the air. 222Every noble activity makes room for itself. MARIAN NESBITT Wilkes-Barre. Pa. Wc delve deeply—we who try fathoming Marian's personality. From this deep personality evolves a multitude of activities. Poetry seems outstanding in these—spare moments finding her either writing or reading heavier literature. Life was made interesting for "Ne y” on 0. B.. but exploration finds her heart in surgical assisting. Outstanding wit and humor, coupled with brilliant conversation, win for Marian many friends. It is rumored that our Marian is quite an expert swimmer, having won a number of trophies. A mighty contribution was made to the Class of '44 when Marian transferred from Wilkes-Barre General to Temple. ANN EVERTON OAKES Maplewood. N. J. Ann first opened her eyes in the quiet little town of Maplewood. N. J. After her training here, her plans are to attend school somewhere in New York where she may obtain her B.S. degree. Because of her friendly personality and kindness toward all, "Annie” is known as a favorite among her classmates. Many hours pass by as Ann indulges in good books and cigarettes. Outdoors you can find Ann traveling with her tennis racket; tennis being her favorite among sports. On the serious side of life, however, she hopes to have a home located in the countryside of one of the New England states. 223Great actions bespeak great minds. SONIA SYLVIA ODOLESKI Hazleton, Pa. Did you ever notice that slick little affair with every hair just in its proper place? If not, we invite you to look at our “Nightingale” from Hazleton. Pa. Born and educated in the small town atmosphere. Sonia finds that she enjoys the Philadelphia breezes. Hard work and long hours do not seem to detract from her enthusiasm and pleasure of life at large. Her radiant smile helps banish all blues, both in the classroom and at the bedside. Willing to work, cooperative and always making life worth while, correlate Sonia. RHODA E. OBERHOLTZER Palmyra, Pa. Rhoda was born in the post-war period of the ” 1920’s” in Lebanon. She lived and learned in the quiet ways of her people until she went to Hershcy's Junior College. She became an excellent leader and very active in social activities and sports. Then she came to Temple. "0. B.” likes badminton, hiking and. above all. swimming. Rhoda’s present aim is to become a naval nurse, but she also has a secret aim—that is. she hopes some day to become an aviator. With her generally known smile, friendliness and other virtues, how could she fall short of her aims? Best wishes. ”0. B.” 224The Acts of this life are the destiny of the young. MILDRED T. PARTON Philadelphia, Pa. Well, if it isn't "Millie” -can’t call her one of the city gals because part of her heart still remains back in the old home town Pottsville. Always happy in a carefree way with few or no worries, that's Millie. She gets a great satisfaction out of nursing, but then Millie has interests elsewhere too. There’s nothing Parton likes to do better in her spare time than to darn socks —not saying whose socks but all joking aside it may come in handy some day at any rate we hope so. don’t wc. Millie? MARY ETHEL ROHRER Brownsville. Pa. Mary Ethel has the distinction of being one of the taller girls in our class. Her height is exceeded only by her generosity and thoughtfulness. Her many friends enjoy her keen sense of humor and appreciate her cheery disposition. High school days found her swinging a mean baton, guess what she’s swinging now??—thermometers! As a hobby Mary Ethel chooses dancing waltz or moderate swing. During her training she received greatest enjoyment in the obstetrical and surgical departments. In the future she hopes to further her knowledge in these fields, and also hopes to be caught in the grip of Uncle Sam’s Navy. 225Charity is a virtue of the heart and not of the hands. HELEN ROSS Centre Hall, Pa. Helen was born in the beautiful region of Penn State where she acquired her appreciation of nature's best. After three semesters at Penn State College, she entered Temple to further her medical knowledge. Helen’s quiet domestic ability will fulfill her secret ambition—should we say—the mistress of a beautiful home somewhere in the South? Ross loves hiking and music. Just invite her to a concert or an opera and you’ll find a very happy young lady. With her ambition, intelligence and evcr-willingness to work, she will master whatever task she undertakes. ISABEL CHAPMAN RUSSELL St. Augustine. Fla. Southern sunshine always adds a great deal to the beauty in life. She has even taught us Yankees to appreciate this and respect the South. ‘Russ’’ was born in St. Augustine. Fla. She spent her school days in the South, then decided to further her education in the northern way. At Temple she is known for her sunny disposition which blossoms both professionally and socially. Her favorite hobbies are swimming and dancing. Vacations (three weeks annually) arc spent on the shores of Florida with her family and a friend whom we all know as "Cliff." 226Character is destiny. JANET M. STICKLER Reading, Pa. Stickler glided into this old “burg" when we were all looking as green as grass. Janet is known to many as Peanut.” A ready smile, a hearty laugh best describe Janet s nature. With hardly a serious moment and a gay. care-frcc perspective Janet enjoys her work. When not working, a good book and a coke afford real pleasure for Janet! As a sports enthusiast she favors bowling and swimming. Since "Stick” lives so near home, we find she and suitcase homeward bound quite often. Janet hopes to join the Nurses’ Army Air Corps upon graduation. CHARLOTTE T. YANAVAGE Shenandoah, Pa. We've all learned to know Charlotte as an exception to the old supposition- -a redhead with a fiery temper. Patience is her greatest virtue. Her greatest source of inspiration is someone whom we all call "Uncle.” We are wondering if Dr. Zabo-rowski objects to so many nieces? Yana-vage can entertain herself in nearly anything. although playing the piano, dancing and skating rate Al. Charlotte naturally takes to surgery as a duck does to water. She probably will spend part of her future in surgical assisting. Best wishes. "Rusty." 227They can conquer who believe they can. ELEANOR G. TOLMIE Pemierton. N. J. " I olmie” comes to us as a transfer from way out in Rockford. III. She has travelled quite a lot and has attended schools from Washington. D. C.. to somewhere in Utah. However, she has turned farmerette and now lives at Pemberton. N. J- the pride and joy of the farm being the beautiful English setter. "Flika.” This witty lass has a gift for making everything seem colorful and humorous. I olmie likes real jive and has a weakness for queer stationery and rare perfumes. Aside from being quite a bowler she likes to swim and sleep. There was no mistake when she chose nursing as a profession. ANNE ZAVOSKEY Everette. Pa. To the Class of '44 comes one who is scholastically outstanding. When it comes to "book-learnin’ ” there is none better than Ann. Outwardly Ann appears quite serious, but to her friends she is very witty and always adds to the entertainment at bedtime chats. If there is anyone whose hair looks neater and is better kept than Ann’s, we don’t believe it. On duty, she maintains all the professional dignity of her uniform and will probably make a fine supervisor in the near future. 228Nothin is more simple'than greatness; Indeed, to be simple is to be great. HELEN MICHAEL ZULICK COALDALE. Pa. This conscientious nurse hails from Coal-dale. Pa. Her acquaintance reveals a heart of gold and while on or off duty her friendly smile begs your friendship. Her ambition is to write, travel abroad and then write some more. As the youngest of twelve children she has helped overthrow the idea of ’ the spoiled baby,” rather she is an individualist and with good reasoning solves her own problems. As a student. “Zulicki” has always been enticed by the operating room and hopes that some day she will be a doctor’s scrub-nurse. Our Class Advisor—Miss Lois Frank Our book would be incomplete without some mention of Miss Frank. We sincerely appreciate her guidance and encouragement throughout the time she has served as class adviser. We first made Miss Frank’s acquaintance when she was supervisor on Babcock Men’s ward. Those days are well remembered by many. Then we had the pleasure of having her supervising us by night and now we know her as assistant to the medical director. Miss Frank has helped make all our social activities successful. We shall never forget the happy moments spent with her. 229■H99I PRE- CLINICALS First Row. left to right: V. Colis. M. Tanaka. M.

The experiences gained as student technicians have been both enjoyable and interesting. We graduates will retain them in our memories for many years to come. We have learned the necessity of cooperation and willingness and gained the ability to work quickly and efficiently. Since those first days characterized by utter confusion we have gradually obtained the ability and confidence descriptive of our profession. All our work was not confined to the laboratory. There were lectures to attend: bacteriology, parasitology, physiology, chemistry, and clinical pathology. We worried how and when the work would get done, and secretly hoped the counts in nursery would be taken, our phosphotase would be taken out of the oven on time, and that the charting would be done. We loved bacteriology, even though it did require a lot of study. We thought of ways to remember the Gram stain above the waist. Gram positive; below the waist. Gram negative and then learned the list of exceptions. We struggled with morphologies, antigenic structures, and lab diagnoses. Dr. Hamilton taught us in bio-chemistry that there was another "bucket brigade” besides one used to put out fires. We learned what dopa oxidase is. that spinach has too much oxalate, and "The Line Test" has to do with bone structure. We tried to comprehend Dr. Saylor’s lectures on proteins. In parasitology we worried about life cycles, learned we could have worms and not know it. and wondered how to spell Enterobius vermicularis. Dr. Konzelmann in clinical path gave us the “inside dope on much of our lab work. We felt mighty smart when we helped Miss Woodring in the Student Lab. We worked hard, but we had fun. We talked “shop” whenever we met. A get-together in the evenings always resulted in discussing the work of the day. how we had 1 10 specimens. 2 positive Kahns, or there were 16 baskets to embed mostly “on edge. We lived and breathed Technology. DR. KONZELMANN While still in undergraduate school, we were greatly impressed by Dr. Konzclmann's interest in behalf of the technicians and the course for medical laboratory technologists. During our twenty-two months here at medical school, we became convinced that the faith we placed in him was well founded. We felt very proud when we learned Dr. Konzelmann had been elected president of the American Society of C finical Pathologists. So. to our chief, we owe appreciation for our school and for the unparalleled training he has devotedly given to us. 233THE SEfl10RG Marilyn C. Bender MEDICAL TECHNOLOGISTS- Philadelphia. Pa.

Ohio fllEDICBL TECHH0L0GY HAS fl BRIGHT FUTURE Since my early days in the laboratory, it has seemed to me that there was a distinct place for someone whose special interest was laboratory technique and whose activities would be concerned with technical procedures alone. As the years have passed and newer methods have been devised for the early diagnosis of disease, the need for such experts has become even more evident. One cannot help admit that the early clinical signs and symptoms of some diseases are vague and not at all diagnostic; indeed, in some clinical signs are entirely lacking Medical research has established that before functional failure or grossly evident morphological changes occur, there are discoverable alterations in the chemical composition of body fluids, or as in the case of tumors, in the cell structure of organs and tissues. Consider, too. the long list of fevers with almost identical symptoms in the early days of the disease, the true etiological factor of which is demonstrable only by more or less elaborate cultural studies. In each instance the demonstration of these early changes depends upon the employment of involved chemical and physical or biologic methods Expertness in the handling of these methods can be acquired only after a thorough background has been established by the study of elementary chemistry, physics and biology. One person cannot hope to be expert in all of these and in medicine, too. so that the physician, whose specialty is clinical pathology, must choose between serving as the master technician and serving as the correlator of laboratory and clinical data. It has seemed to me that the latter is his true function, and it is in this direction that many clinical pathologists are moving today, leaving the technical problems entirely to those who by early training in the basic sciences are better prepared than he. This opens up for the medical technologist a wider field and an opportunity for specialization, for the newer developments in each one of the basic sciences are sufficiently involved to occupy all of one's thoughts. So the trend in the larger hospitals is seen, wherein departments of chemistry, bacteriology, etc., employ as heads of these departments those who have devoted special attention to either chemistry or one of the other sciences, and aspire only to expertness in the one phase. The demand for those holding the Master s or Doctor's degree in these sciences is constantly increasing. I am convinced that in the future those engaged in the specialty of medical chemistry or medical bacteriology will, after the completion of their basic studies in these fields, follow a course of training designed to prepare them especially for these subdivisions by the addition of such subjects as human anatomy, physiology and pathology. Without a thorough understanding of the human organism, and the diseases to which it is subject, a knowledge of chemistry or any other of the basic sciences is inadequate. So. I look forward to the birth of a new profession which will have had its beginnings in medical technology. 237 Frank W. Konzelmann.1. Chalk one up for Miss Rotman. 2. “I hope I'm not allergic to chocolate.” 3. Free acid, no histamine. 4. "Looks like a positive sugar from here." URIIMYSIS, GflSTRO-EflTEROLOGY M ALLERGY While in Urinalysis for two months, we learned a variety of tests—P. S. P.’s, B. M. R.’s, E. S. R.’s, and P.'s. We encountered endless rows of bottles and bottomless piles of charting. We shook far more than the patient at our first venipuncture . . . and said afterwards. “It wasn't so bad.’’ Remember how at 4:43 we wished the only test we ran on specimens was the “sink” test? And how we hoped the 0. B.’s (our best customers) didn’t have positive sugars? “Keep It Down.” applied to both patient and technician in Castries Lab. After we first learned to “pass that tube.” we felt like veterans, until we encountered a “plus four” retching and invariably with these cases— no free acid—use histamine. Ugh, one hour more. We learned titrations and microscopies. Imagine our surprise when Miss Masalsky said our meat fibers were nothing but scratches on the slide and our predominance of red cells—air bubbles. In Allergy we made vaccines from vacuum cleaner dust, skin tested with the idea that everyone must be allergic to something, and “popped” a seemingly endless pile of syringes. We nursed blisters for days after we made up buffered saline, and remember how we hated to give up chocolate, potatoes, and coffee when we acted as the “guinea pigs” for passive transfer tests.PATHOLOGY, HISTOLOGY, MID BIO-CHEffllSTRY As freshmen in Chemistry we washed dishes and when we finished one pile there was always another pile. During our junior month we dealt with sweeter things like sugars, ureas, and COj’s—Ah! mercury in the machine, girls—not on the floor. Carriage and clinic were part of our work—a vein?—we were lucky if we found one. Remember how as seniors we groaned when the choles-terols and esters came in? And how we tried to make N 12 sulfuric from concentrated ? It was in Pathology that we learned how to prepare autopsy tissues for embedding and cutting and later staining and mounting for microscopic work. How bewildered we were when we first watched Miss Brenz cutting at the microtome! We couldn't imagine ourselves ever being able to cut ribbons, but practice certainly did work wonders. No one will ever forget boiling and drying those countless slides or the mad dash Thursday afternoons to the fifth floor for the conference case. We ran the "surgicals” through in Histology. We held our breath as we changed the Jackson tissues and mumbled as we tried to get the "button’’ out in one piece. And remember cutting our first surgical—a humble appendix ?

Getting ready to set up in serology. 2. Aureus or albus? 3. The humidity is terrific. 4. Spaghetti. Mrs. Haas? SEROLOGV, BACTERIOLOGY, ROD PARASITOLOGY One of our favorite labs was Serology. Kolmer-Wasser-manns and other complement-fixation tests. Kahns. Maz-zini’s. spinal fluid serologies, and titrations form the nucleus of the course. We never thought we would assimilate what and how much goes into which tube and why. We played nursemaid to a 36-dcgree water bath, and pampered guinea pigs after we bled them from the heart. Mrs. Lynch, in the monthly round-table quizzes, cleared up our jumbled thoughts in preparation for Dr. Kolmer's oral. Remember the nine-o’clockers asking immediately if the sheep cells were clear, and how we disregarded the patient in our joy to have a plus-four report. Bacteriology was our final lab of our course as student technicians. Our first month was a constant search (usually fruitless) for acid-fast bacilli. In the media kitchen during our second month, we worked as chefs for our bacteria friends. As juniors we were in charge of vaccines and frequented the library in search of material for our paper. Our last month was so-called "worry” month—did we have Salmonella enteritidis or Salmonella acrtrycke. In Parasitology we found that the female worms (technically speaking Helminths) were far larger than the males. We struggled with pronunciations and spellings and were glad when we had Balantidium coli—Oh. they were so obvious.1. Eight-inch tubing, the observation tube, then the long piece. 2.

HEIMOLOGY, TYPING, ODD BLOOD BOOB We started many a morning in Hematology sleepily groping around unlit halls at 7 A. M. awaking patients with. "Good morning. I’m going to stick your finger.’ This started a regular routine of taking counts, counting them, getting an occasional hematocrit, "retie.” or malarial smear, and going for more counts. The freshmen seemed to be everywhere—taking "coags.” reading "hemos,” staining slides, charting, and washing a never-ending supply of pipettes. A “suburb” of hematology, typing, was the lab where we learned that A and B could mean far more than just the first two letters of the alphabet. "Donor compatible, blood ready.” was our favorite telephone phrase. We also were in the basal business, pushing the Sanborn-elephant or Jones-deluxe to patients' rooms for dummy tests or the actual B. M. R. During the month spent in Blood Bank, we were certain of two things the importance of sterile technic (ah. pyogens) and the loss of weight in cheating death crossing Broad Street innumerable times each day. Here, we assisted the lab intern as he drained blood from any willing donor. Each time the centrifuge was started we muttered silent prayers. "May those bottles be wfell balanced. Amen.” We ll never forget pooling and how amazed we were that the red cells didn’t sneak into the plasma bottle for Miss Benton. 241RALPH CLARKE BRADLEY. M.D.. Captain, Army Medical Corps Born in May. 1898, Dr. Bradley graduated from Colby College in 1925. and from the Medical College of the University of Pennsylvania in 1929. He served for twelve years at Temple as instructor in pharmacology; was also flight surgeon for the Pennsylvania National Guard for nine years. He died April 28. 1943, at the Tilton General Hospital. Fort Dix. N. J., at forty-four years of age. His death was a great shock to all the students who worked under him. and from him acquired a fresh and wholehearted devotion to the subject of medicine. 3(n Jflemortatn HAROLD LYNN EOTTOMLEY. M.D. Dr. Bottomley. although a native of Philadelphia, being born here September 16, 1896. was raised in Virginia. He graduated from Roanoke High School. May 27. 1914. and after completing two years at Medico-Chi graduated in medicine from the Medical School of Temple University, in 1919. He interned and was chief resident at the Samaritan Hospital until 1921. He was a member of the gynecological staff at Temple under both Dr. Hammond and Dr. Montgomery. He is survived by his wife and their two children. His death in August. 1943, brought much sorrow to his many friends here at Temple, both on the faculty and among the student body. 242THE SKULL FEATURES and HDVERTISEfUEflTS 243And It Stuck! A New Method of Skirt Grafting Developed by Machteld E. Sano, M.D. Dr. Sano's research in pathology requires much paper work. This exclamation is still ringing through the halls of Temple University Hospital as Dr. Sano’s research in the perfection of a physiological glue for skin grafts results in the performance of feats of skin grafting that have never before been successful. Dr. Machteld E. Sano. while working desperately with Dr. Steel in an attempt to successfully suture skin grafts, became very much disgusted with the continued tug-of-war that was ensuing with Sano on one side and the stubborn graft on the other. “Why not just glue them on?” she exclaimed. But what to use for glue was the prompt query. Dr. Sano didn’t let it rest there, she was determined to stick them on. Out of this evolved her coagulum-contact method, which consists of a substance dubbed by Dr. Babcock as “physiological glue.” made from the patient s own blood which, by a few simple steps, is separated into the two essential substances in the process, one of which is plasma, the other a cell extract obtained from the buffy coat or the erythcocytes plus the buffy coat and is called “leucocytic cream.” In using this glue for grafting, the unwashed sterile graft is moistened on the under surface with the cell extract and with another brush the plasma is painted on the recipient area. The graft is then fitted on and edges carefully adjusted with forceps and any air expelled from underneath the graft. Adherence occurs in a few minutes equalling the speed of Best-test cement that all the students used in pharmacology. A single strip of boric acid gauze is then placed lightly over the graft. No other dressings arc needed, no sutures and yet it sticks. For best cosmetic results, the graft is Case No. I (Courtesy of Dr. W. E. Burnett.) The tip of the nose was bitten by a dog. This is the graft three weeks after application. 244Case No. 8 (Courtesy of Dr. C. P. Giambalvo.) Forty-eight hours following a thin split-skin graft. This patient was able to leave the hospital seventeen days later. made slightly larger than the recipient area and the edges trimmed to fit exactly. Within forty-eight hours the graft becomes purplish and there is sufficient circulation to take care of any serous fluids which might accumulate underneath. Sections of animal grafts show the small capillaries that rapidly grow up into the graft arc filled with healthy erythrocytes. Over 100 square inches of skin had been grafted at the time of Dr. Sano’s report and less than one square inch had been lost. Dr. E.. Burnett first accepted this method for practical trial and the first five cases in Dr. Sano's series belong to him. The first case was that of a five-year-old white boy (No. I) who had the tip of his nose bitten off by a non-rabid dog. He was treated with sulfathiazole ointment and grafted with a thick split skin graft which turned purple in about 48 hours. This boy went home as good as new without a dressing three days later. Another interesting case was that of a colored male (No. 8). 48 years of age. who severely burned his right leg in alkali. Forty square inches of thin and thick split skin grafts were used. Three days later showed suppuration around graft which on culture showed mixed staph hemolytic aureus, hemo- k A follow-up of Case No. 8 showed this result six weeks after the first graft was applied. lytic streptococcus type A. and streptococcus albus. There wets no tissue loss with use of sulfathiazole spray. This method has numerous advantages, among which are the fact that no sutures are needed: the glue is an ideal medium for cell growth and stimulates cell growth as well as preventing excess exudation. The exact method of preparation is exceedingly simple and is presented here in as brief a fashion as possible: 1. Into a 10 cc. syringe containing I milligram of heparin dissolved in 1.0 cc. of Ty-rode's solution (buffered salt solutionl. 5 cc. of the patient’s or homologous blood are drawn. 2. Blood then centrifuged and plasma transferred to a small 3 cc. test tube. 3. 1.5 cc. Tyrode’s solution added to remaining red cells and buffy coat or to buffy coat alone if it is convenient to separate it from the red cells. 4. This cell mixture is agitated with glass beads. This is then decanted off and the "leucocytic cream” is ready for use. unless buffy coat has not previously been separated from red cells, in which case the mixture must be centrifuged and the supernatant fluid removed to another sterile tube. 245 eiuat i ARE indeed happy and proud I that you are about to become fellow alumni.

We remember the story of the ancient medic who. sighting through his crude tube into the bladder for stones, exclaimed. “Urethra, 1 have found it!” Instruments have been devised for looking into many of the body's openings such as the cystoscope for visualization of the bladder and the anoscopc and proctoscope for diagnosing lesions of the anus and rectum. All of these instruments are based on the principle of objective examination and were collectively called scopes from the Greek, scopein, meaning to view. Out of this series of internal investigations arose a long-felt need to view the interior of the human food and air passages and hence the development of the bronchoscope and the esophagoscope. “Into my Sunday throat" or "down the wrong way" has frequently been ascribed to the choking and strangling caused by foreign particles entering the larynx which seemingly put the victim very near death. Thus developed a fear of entering with tubes regions which were so sensitive and seemingly so dangerous. This fear of killing the patient was one reason for the delay in the development of bronchoscopy and it was not until 1897 after the work of several pioneers in the field had shown that medicaments and tubes could be safely introduced through the larynx into the windpipe that this fear was overcome. Kirstein in 1897 described tracheoscopy as well as his now well-known direct laryngoscopy. For the latter he used at first a tubular spatula with good results but it remained for Killian in 1897 to make the greatest steps in endoscopy when he removed a foreign body from a bronchus and demonstrated the feasibility of upper bronchoscopy. Later he developed lower bronchoscopy. Esophagoscopy moved a little more rapidly and actually started in 1807 with Bozini who examined the upper end of the esophagus and was further developed by Einhorn in 1902 who devised an esophagoscope having an auxiliary tube in the wall of the main tube through which a wire passed for distal lighting. Chevalier Jackson in 1904 combined the lighting principle of the Einhorn esophagoscope with the tube of Killian, and in 1905 he designed a scope with a drainage tube as well. Since that time Dr. Jackson has designed newer and better scopes for his carefully acquired art. It was in 1917 that there was established the "Association of American Peroral Endoscopists" but the task of forcing the tongue through such gyrations in its pronunciation led four years later to the more euphonic “The American Bronchoscopic Society.” Dr. Jack-son. however, believed that he and his colleagues were more than just a society interested in looking through the mouth and that the society justified a change in name to include not only viewing but the complete study of that which they saw. Thus in 1938, Dr. Jackson delivered an address to the society which led to the evolution of the American Broncho-Esophagologic Society. Wc now know this change was justified as not only is bronchoscopy done for viewing and the removal of foreign objects but over 90 per cent of it is done for the diagnosis and therapy of disease. Dr. Jackson's work in the field of broncho-esophagology has perhaps done more to shed light upon the darkness and mystery that has always shrouded the interior of the thorax than that of any other individual. The many new instruments devised by Dr. Jackson, such as his numerous types of grasping forceps and specula, and his many revisions of ancient equipment, such as his method of distal illumination with its innumerable advantages over the earlier headlamp and headmirror method. 248have made the Temple University Hospital Clinic one of the most up-to-date and certainly the most progressive and best operated broncho-esophagologic clinic in the country. His work in perfecting the technical aspect of broncho-esophagology is only one of Dr. Jackson's many achievements. How many young children did we formerly see whose throats had been burned and scarred by the caustic action of lye which had carelessly been left within their reach by thoughtless parents. It was through Dr. Jackson’s tireless efforts that the number of these innocent victims has been materially reduced. His doggedness and courage in attempting to put a stop to these accidents brought about the passage of the Federal Caustic Act by Congress and signed by President Coolidge on the 2nd of March. 1927, providing on every can of lye or other caustic that goes into a home today, in large letters the warning POISON! and the effective antidote. The Chevalier Jackson Bronchoscopic Clinic of Temple University Hospital was established in 1930 when a chair of bronchoscopy was created at this institution and it is here that Dr. Jackson and his son. Chevalier Lawrence Jackson, arc working exclusively. The clinic constitutes a very compact unit, occupying the entire third floor of one wing of the hospital. When a new patient comes in. a careful history is taken by a thoroughly trained secretary. He is then seen in one of the preliminary nose and throat examining rooms by a member of the clinic staff. Teamwork is the keyword on clinic days as frequently there is a list of twenty or thirty patients, all of which must be seen. The extreme care with which each patient is handled in the clinic cannot be over-emphasized. Each case is individual and although the procedures used depend on past experience with just such a case, individual factors are not lost sight of. The importance of knowledge of previous cases is shown by the careful clinic records that are kept of each patient entirely independent of the hospital records and which are at the fingertips of the operator. Likewise every foreign object removed from a patient is preserved and catalogued with numbers corresponding to the patient's chart. Hundreds of coins, stones, beads, pins and other objects are thus kept in carefully prepared trays for the convenience of the staff. Through this collection. the Jacksons have found that all objects no matter how similar have individual characteristics. Each pin has a little different bend in the wire from its neighbor, a little different point, a little different catch, a little more or less tension in the wire used. All this sounds needless but an example will offer an explanation: Little Jackie swallows a safety pin and is brought into the clinic by an anxious and frightened mother. On examination the X-ray shows the pin to be of medium size, a little odd shaped, and lodged in the mucous membrane at the corina of the trachea, showing that the pin had been insufflated. This pin is then checked with the catalogued collection and a copy pin is selected: the case is then looked up and studied. Frequently it means going through several cases before a like case is found but when one is found, it is studied to determine if the presenting case can be handled in a similar manner. If an unusual problem presents itself, the copy pin is inserted first in a rubber tube which simulates the human passage and after careful study of the necessary maneuvers for removal, it is so inserted in the cadaver and again removed, f inally a living anesthetized dog is used and the foreign body again inserted and dislodged by the instruments until the technic is mastered. By then the operator is ready for the patient. 1 he practice removals arc. of course, dependent on the acuteness of the surgical emergency. The painstaking efforts of the operator to master the removal of the object from other subjects, prior to the actual operation on the patient, results in a more skillfully executed procedure with less trauma and less post-operative dangers. In Dr. Chevalier Jackson’s earlier teaching days his accurate colorful chalk sketches enlivened the lectures and enlightened his eager students. He has always been quite an artist and his sketches w’ill live in the memory’ of his friends and associates. Perhaps the most well-known chalk sketch is the one illustrating the perforation of an esophageal diverticulum in the blind passage of a bougie, thinking it to be entering a constricted portion of the esophagus, rather than (actually) the neck of the diverticulum. This illustration is only one of his many 249Success to the Class of '45 Your selection as Officers exemplifies the value of specialized training.

WOHL DR. P. D. WOODBRIDGE 271And Now . . . we have come to the end of a book. It has been designed to record a medical student's life from the time he begins to take notes in his first class until the day when he attains the culmination of twenty years of study . . his diploma as a Doctor of Medicine. It has been made possible not only by the seniors who directly contributed writings but, also, by every medical student who in his daily life adds to the art his abilities and inspires professors as well as classmates by an insatiable thirst for knowledge, truth and the understanding that comes with both. It appears more and more that this graduating class will bear the brunt of many of this war’s campaigns which are yet to be fought. But whatever may be the outcome for us individually, we will have the satisfaction of knowing that our years of preparation, the financial sacrifices of our parents and of many of us personally have been made to fulfill a basic need of all men everywhere . . . the relief from pain, the return to health following disease, the repair of disfigured faces and limbs and, most of all. the comfort to a wondering soul. May we never forget that we shall be always students of medicine. 272HARE RtcKy 2ABBiE3?ec.
