TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE L-------- —
IN RECOGNITION OF HIS INDEFATIGABLE SPIRIT. HIS UNSHAKABLE BELIEF IN STUDENTS AND IN APPRE'
CIATION OF HIS CONSIDERATE COUNSEL. HIS EXAMPLE OF THE FULL LIFE. THIS “1945 SKULL”
IS DEDICATED TO PHYSICIAN. TEACHER. HUMAN I-TARIAN. DOCTOR O. SPURGEON ENGLISH. OUR PROFESSOR OF PSYCHIATRY.
O. SPURGEONENGLISH, M.D.DIt. O. KPUUUtiOX IX.IINII
AS SHAKESPEARE has left us with the immortal thought that "some men are born great, others achieve greatness, while still others have greatness thrust upon them," we the Class of 1945 consider it a distinct privilege to dedicate this record of our medical school careers to one. whom we feel was not born in great circumstances nor had greatness thrust upon him, but who has achieved the distinction and honor of his position through his own ambition and native abilities, Dr. O. Spurgeon English. Professor and Head of the Department of Psychiatry.
It was during those memorable first few days back in August of 1942 that the Class of 1945 and Dr. English met. It was a meeting steeped in the atmosphere of critical surveillance and suspicion that only a group of over-cautious freshmen can confer upon a new professor. However, as the tall, well-dressed, handsome gentleman stood before us and with well chosen words introduced us to his subject. Psychiatry, we soon found ourselves laughing with him when some humorous incident was related, and presently here and there about the room someone was whispering to his neighbor, "Say this guy is all right!" Before the close of the period the decision was unanimous; Dr. English had won the respect and friendship of 125 freshmen.
And with the passing of four years here at Temple, he has kept our respect; he has kept our friendship, for he has been more than a professor who has taught us well ... he has been a friend who is vitally interested in our making satisfactory adjustments to our own life problems.
As a class, we probably know Dr. English as well as we do any other man on the Temple University Medical School staff. One might attribute this desirable relationship to many things but probably paramount are a friendly manner, an attractive personality, and his never-too-busy-to-talk-to-you attitude which go far toward making you feel that you know him. And certainly there was that unforgettable Saturday night during our sophomore year when Dr. and Mrs. English threw open the doors of their beautiful Righter's Mill
home and graciously welcomed and delightfully entertained our class in its entirety. It was indeed a rousing convivial affair with beer and cokes, music and singing and still remains in the opinion of many of us as THE social event of our stay here. What greater tribute can we pay it or justification for it make than to say that statistics showed a class average rise of upwards of ten points in exams taken during the following two weeks.
But for all this congeniality there is much about this prominent man of which we the class and you the reader are not aware. The son of a farmer, O. Spurgeon English was born in Presque Isle. Maine on September 27. 1901. It was in this little town that the psychiatrist-to-be spent his younger days helping his father run the potato farm, fishing during his leisure time, and finally graduating from high school in 1918. It was while in high school that he spontaneously and with considerable finality decided that medicine would be his chosen field. The first step toward the realization of this achievement was two years spent at the University of Maine studying the pre-medical sciences, and we can well imagine that the high degree of positive socialization that this erstwhile boy from the farm exhibits
Tentoday had its early beginnings with his membership there in the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity.
It was in the Fall of 1920 that having been accepted at Jefferson, the tall, lanky. New Englander arrived in the big city of Philadelphia friendless and having the unenviable task of finding a room and getting settled in a strange and lonely city l efore matriculating with his fellow freshmen at Jefferson Medical College. However this enterprising young man soon became a member of Nu Sigma Xu and presently life became the busy but interesting one so typical of medical school.
All too soon came the realization that the four fleeting years of the academic study of medi-
Graduating day in 1924 was like a platoon that had captured an enemy position but which had gotten too far ahead of its supply lines and was now threatened on its flank . . . the goal had been won but one wondered if the cause had not been lost, for Dr. English had a pulmonary hemmorrhage on the day he was awarded his degree of Doctor of Medicine. An attempt at in-terneship at the Jefferson Hospital was unsuccessful, and a month later Dr. English was a patient at the White Haven Sanatorium. Another year had passed before lie was able to complete his inlerncship and begin once again his career in the Grandest Profession.
It was this untimely incident with the recognition of the fact that a well regulated life was his greatest protection, as well as an active interest in the subject that led him to the decision that psychiatry would be his specialty. Freud, and his contemporaries in the field of psychiatry had won another disciple.
Post-graduate studies were begun in Boston at the Psychopathic Hospital as an interne during 1927-1928. From here he ventured to the Montifiore Hospital for Chronic Diseases in Xew York City to further his study of neurology and psychiatry and its allied sciences, this being climaxed by his being granted a Commonwealth Fund fellowship for three years of study at Harvard University. This marked the first step in Dr. English’s rise in the medical educational world for it was at this time that he became an instructor at Harvard Medical School. Fortune smiled once again on the promising young psychiatrist for soon after news of the Fellowship came an opportunity to travel to Vienna and Berlin for a year’s study of the European approach to his specially.
Additional training in the field of psychiatry was not his only gain while in Europe for it was in Berlin that Miss Ellen Brown who was living there at the time with her parents, entered his life story. A common appreciation for old and cultural Berlin and a mutual enjoyment of its entertainments made for a beginning court-
cine had come . . . and gone.
Elevensnip but too soon came the realization that his year on the continent was about over, and Dr. English had to return to America and Harvard for completion of his fellowship. The passing of another twelve months saw the end of his stay at Harvard: likewise the end of three years of persistent and concentrated psychiatric study. The boy from the farm had come far . . . there were but few laps to go now!
Spurgeon English was not only interested in securing further training in psychoanalysis when he returned to Berlin in 1932. he was also very anxious to see Ellen Brown. There was no interrupting call from Harvard this time, and on February 28. 1933, after his psychoanalytic studies had been finished, they were married. One month later the new Mrs. English joined her husband on his return to the United
In May, 1933. Dr. English became the newly appointed Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Temple University School of Medicine. 1938 was the momentous year, however, for in that year at the early age of 37. Dr. English was made Professor and Head of the Department of Psychiatry. At last the long sought goal had been reached.
Dr. English’s extra-professional interests are indeed numerous. His musical career began during medical school with lessons in playing the banjo; later the piano accordian fell before his talent. and most recently the bass has commanded his attention. These varied musical abilities are put to practical use when Dr. English joins Dr. Wright and seven other fellow musicians in providing entertainment for the boys in the services at the 17th Locust U.S.O. once each month. Traveling is another of Dr. English's enjoyments, and 1936 saw him and Mrs. English attending the Olympic Games in Berlin, later driving throughout Germany. Austria. Hungary, Switzerland, France and Holland. He also likes amateur photography and a weekly game of golf. And finally his greatest interest is in his family which at the present time boasts of three boys. Wesley (10), O. Spurgeon. Jr. (7). and Carroll (2).
Dr. English has contributed to the medical literature with, “Common Neuroses of Children and Adults” (English and Pearson—1937). “Psychosomatic Medicine” (Weiss and English—1943), “The Emotional Problems of Living” (English and Pearson—1945). He has already l een president of the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Society and this year is President of the Philadelphia Psychiatric Society.
For your abilities as a teacher, for giving us a finer appreciation of the mental sufferings of our fellowmen. and finally for a better philosophy of life itself, we the Class of 1945 thank you. Dr. O. Spurgeon English. Knowing you has l een a real privilege.
TwlvcTO THE CLASS OF 1«M5
THREE years ago during a typically sultry Philadelphia August you began your medical career. During those early days the road ahead seemed long and there were moments of great discouragement. Many an evening the temptation was great to desert the many hours of needed study for an evening of recreation, but a view of the goal ahead gave perserverance, and in perserver-atice there were established habits of industry which will stand you in good stead throughout your lifetime of medical practice. And during those early days also came a fuller realization than you had ever had before of the marvels of the profession you had chosen. It was indeed a privilege to be permitted to study and delve into the amazing intricacies of the human organism and to learn the lessons which would become so fundamental in later years when treating disturbances of structure and function in that organism. Just as though you were travelling through an entirely new Wonderland, every day brought new vistas each as marvellous as those of the day before, but never lacking for variety. Once it was the astonishing complexity of the communicating pathways in the central nervous system, then it was the electrophysical marvel of the activation of the cardiac musculature, and again it was the phenomenal activators and regulators of the extremely complex chemical reaction patterns essential to life, etc., etc. Thus the pre-clinical years passed as the fascination of it all imbued you with new interest, new energy to carry on despite all difficulties.
The Junior and Senior years brought at last the long anticipated contact with patients. Now you felt close to real medical practice. The problems of the patients assigned to you were real-life problems and there was a great joy in applying the fundamentals which you had mastered to the un-
ravelling of them. Diagnosis was found to l e an exciting mental process of the highest order embracing careful and painstaking observation, correlation and interpretation. And you realized more and more its importance in practice as you saw that the days of empiricism are gone forever and that the miracles of modern therapy depend on the application of specific remedies to disease states for which they have definite indication. During these days also you glimpsed the satisfaction which is the delight of the doctor's heart and the most important income he receives as he watches a very sick patient restored to health and happiness by his ministrations.
Finally as you prepared for graduation and the years of practice to follow you came to realize fully another fact of utmost importance. The patients you saw were not just cases having diseases, but real persons with emotions often much distraught by the difficulties in which they found themselves. This was manifest to you in many ways, but it was especially evident in those instances in which medical science had no cure to offer. One patient showed his emotions with tears, another hid his behind a face of stoical resignation, while a third found complete solace in the Sacred Page. In the latter you saw the workings of the prescription of the Great Physician. "Peace I leave with you. My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled." And seeing this you understood that a physician must also be a minister to souls.
Thus has the foundation for your medical practice been laid. It is a good foundation and one worthy of a fine superstructure. What will l e built upon it depends on you. Will it be wood, hay, stubble, or will it be gold and silver which will stand the testings of judgment ?

ANDREW B. ADAMS
A true son of New England, Andy came to us armed with an A.B, in Biobgv from Harvard. At the Cambridge institution lie belonged to Pi Eta and the rifle club and was a prominent figure in squash and wrestling.
The fact that he served as a counsellor in a summer camp enabled Andy to actively pursue his favorite hobbies of woodcarving, archery,
hiking, wrestling, and hunting. On December 20, 1943, he strolled the matrimonial aisle with the former Rebecca Finnie.
Andy will intern at Aldington Memorial Hospital and from the interest he has shown in the roof-garden here at Temple we feel assured that Dr. Adams will become a competent and understanding pediatrician.

During his three years at Dartmouth College (from which he was later granted his A.B. degree) he held membership in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and the Dragon Senior Society. and was a keen participant in soccer,
basketball, and track. Handsome Bob then came to Temple, where he capably guided our class as president during the preclinical years. The Babcock Surgical Society elected Bob to its royal ranks in 1943 and in December of the following year. Ales took the sacred vows with the charming Mary Hazen, also of Summit. X. J. After his internship at Philadelphia General Hospital. Bob hi» pes to follow in the footsteps of his personable and capable Uncle Ales, specializing in Ob-Gyn.

Urbane and chaste is our Wayne, whose fine trait of condoning others’ faults has gathered for him the plaudits of the throngs. He chose Albright College for the quest of his B.S. degree in Biology. Pi Tan Beta was Wayne’s fraternal choice at the Reading school, where he also was attached to the Alchemist Society and the Skull and Bones Club. With swimming and camping
as chief interests. Wayne accordingly selected camp counselling as a source of summertime employment.
Wayne’s candor and mollifying tendencies have already placed him high in the land of the Aesculapians, where he has selected the rigorous task of pursuing general practice. Internship— Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre. Pa.

EDWARD H. BAIR
Ned’s wanderlust lias been somewhat calmed since arriving at Temple, for he married a Temple University Hospital nurse, the former Miss Betty Crayton, and has started to raise a family of little “Bairs.”
Ned started out life quietly enough by being born at Greensburg, Pa. However, he eventually wound up at Penn State, after getting a taste of military life at Valley Forge Military Academy.
At State he majored in chemistry and biology. Sports, travel, and parties claim Ned's leisure time. The junior internship which he had at the Physicians’ and Surgeons' Hospital has had little effect in curbing his pep or unique sense of humor. For the future, obstetrics and gynecology comprise his choice of a specialty. Internship— Jersey City Medical Center.

Nineteen"There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision.”
Energetic, industrious, likable, and at times studious, Ralph is equally sociable and popular with his classmates. He came to us from Muhlenberg College, where he received his B.S., was a member of Phi Kappa Tan Pre-Med Club and the Varsity “M" Club. He enjoys tennis, hunting, sailing, basketball and volleyball and is not disinclined where and when femininity is to be served. In fact, while working in his father’s shoe stores during summers and holidays, he
has reserved his capable salesmanship for the feminine foot (?) only, and his future plans equally completely exclude men from his services, his intended specialty being O.B. and Gyn.
Lack of marital responsibility and his effusive camaraderie have enabled him to become intimately acquainted with Philadelphia’s night spots. Junior internships were taken at Joseph Price Memorial Hospital and Northeastern Hospital. Philadelphia. Internship—Reading Hospital. Reading:. Pa.

SCHUYLER M. BISSELL
In Sky we all recognize the quintessence of modest achievement. At undergratuate school Bis was president of Delta Upsilpn Fraternity, stepped out of character briefly during freshman year to star on the boxing team and in 1942 had his A.B. degree conferred in biology.
In 1940 and ’41 travels throughout the United States and Canada enriched Sky’s well-rounded background still further, while academic and
social success in medical school are evidenced through his election to presidency of Babcock Surgical Society and active membership in Phi Chi Fraternity.
Coining to us via the Staunton Military Academy and the University of Virginia, leaving us to intern at famous Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago, III., we bid adios to Sky with benedictions.

S. PHILIP BRALOW
Here is a great believer in the old proverb, "It is a great folly to wish to be exclusively wise.” Sockey is one of the great mixers of the class, but this does not insinuate that study has been neglected. Undergraduate days were spent at Penn State, where he majored in chemistry an .oology. Extra-curricular interests are indeed varied, as evidenced by his list of activities:
Swimming, lacrosse, sailing, horseback riding, travelling, camp counsellor, attendant at Philadelphia State Hospital, and junior intern at the Physicians’ and Surgeons’ Hospital. General practice is most interesting to Sock, and we are sure that his good-fellowship and understanding of his subject will combine to produce success. Internship—Michael Reese Hospital.

With an interest in sports befitting his physical capabilities. Tom enjoys many happy hours swimming, golfing, playing tennis and baseball. Yet his voice deludes one and lulls the unwary into rashness, for he speaks soothingly, convincingly of academic and philosophic subjects, and in a manner almost antithetical to that of an athlete. The happy combination of foresight and insight makes his talk worth listening to.
Undergraduate work was completed at Buck-nell University, where he also played varsity
tennis and soccer. His summers were actively and usefully spent as a life guard, bank clerk and scout camp counsellor.
Tom recently left the thinning ranks of bachelors by marrying Marjorie Clayton, in April, 1944.
Postwar, Tom intends to specialize in internal medicine, and we feel he will be in great demand. Best wishes! Internship — Temple University Hospital.

WILLIAM N. CAMPBELL
A native of the Quaker City’s suburbs, Bill journeyed to Wesleyan University for the first half of his pursuit of higher education. In addition to amassing his pre-medical requirements, he was affiliated with Delta Tau Delta, dabbled in photography, and proved a definite threat to Wesleyan’s wrestling opponents.
Although employed for a spell with the Sinclair Oil Refinery, Bill forsook the more lucrative
lure of the black gold for a career in medicine, which we are certain will prove to l e the oil game’s loss and the medical fraternity’s gain.
Unexcelled as a student, Bill combines his scholastic brilliance with a personality ideally suited to pursue the practice of medicine. A member of Babcock Surgical Society, Bill will intern at Temple, and at present leans toward general practice.

Rarely do you find as many remarkable qualities in one fellow as Bill so naturally displays, lie is very truly a sincere scholar of medicine. His personality is in good keeping with his love of sports of many kinds—sailing, hunting, fishing, baseball, basketball, football and swimming. Life-guard duty was his summer specialty, St.
Joseph’s Prep, then St. Joseph’s College gave him his academic background in chemistry and biology. Cultural balance came with debating and dramatics. Yet with all this he remains modest. How could such a fellow ever do anything but that which is admirable? Internship—York Hospital.

Thus he has traveled a distance for his medical education, but we all are happy that Walt decided on Temple, because knowing him has been a worthwhile experience. The University of Hawaii was the scat of his undergraduate learning and the pre-medical sciences were his major
subjects. He was also elected a member of the honorary fraternity Phi Kappa Phi at college. Most of those who know him well at medical school will quickly say that he is a fine fellow and sincere friend. Regardless of what branch of medicine Walt decides on, a life productive of achievement will be the ultimate result. Internship—Temple University Hospital.

The rugged winters of this wind-swept state must have appealed to him, for he stayed an additional two years to receive his B.S. in Medicine, transferring to Temple at the end of his sophomore year. Bryce probably has more nicknames than any man in the class, but more than enough good humor to wear
them gracefully. At the end of his pre-clinical years he was rewarded for his keen interest in pathology by being made an instructor in this subject. A junior internship at St. Michael’s Hospital in North Dakota is another of his accomplishments. Bryce’s quiet reserve yet genuine friendliness will win him patients as they have won him friends.

Bill's a Jersey boy at heart, but strayed from home to attend Dartmouth, from which he received an A.B. in '42. While there he majored in chemistry and zoology, was a brother in Theta Chi Social Fraternity, and a member of the college fencing team. Odd jobs have situated him as an elevator operator and bus boy in pre-war days and bis travels have taken him into forty-
one of the states, Mexico and Canada.
At Temple, tall, handsome Bill became a warm-hearted and generous friend of most of us and showed all that knew him that he has what it takes to make a doctor. Bill’s hobbies are photography, fishing, swimming and riding. internship—Orange Memorial Hospital, Orange,

FREDERICK W. DURHAM
Waggish, droll, jocose, all aptly describe Freddy. A class poll would undoubtedly result in a landslide vote for this inveterate gag-man as the No. 1 master of repartee. Any session, in or out of class was enlivened by nimble-witted banter if Fred was in the group. Yet along with the very definite personality characteristics connoted above, he has the wonderful medical ability of obtaining rapport with all the patients he encounters and of making searching inquiries into i ertinent aspects of their histories.
Freddy came to Temple from Gettysburg, where he received his A.B. in Chemistry and Biology. At undergraduate school he had a scintillating career, acting as chairman of the sophomore. junior and senior proms, as a music columnist and as a member oi the Owl and Nightingale Dramatic Society.
On July 30. 1943, Freddy took charming MBs Lynn Boothe Hammond as his bride. He will intern at Cooper Hospital.

Drifting up the Atlantic seaboard from sunny Florida, Harry soon made a name for himself as one of the brighter academic lights of our class. While majoring in chemistry and biology at the University of Florida, Harry still found time to be an active frater in Alpha Tau Omega, as well as unerringly and repeatedly splitting the bull's-eye as a member of the strong “Gator” rifle team. Besides indulging in his favorite hobbies of swimming, fishing and hunting, Harry
has carried the Florida good-neighbor policy to Canada, Mexico and Cuba.
At Temple Harry was a member of the Babcock Surgical Society and Phi Chi Fraternity. On Octolier 30, 1943, he married his lovely wife, Gloria, and from that time they have been at home to their many friends at their spacious North Sixteenth Street estate. At present Harry likes internal medicine as a future interest. Internship—Temple University Hospital.

A master musician and zealous aspirant of clinical perfection. Fred is an unassuming possessor of a prodigiousness which is hailed by all who know him. This intrepid commandant of the Navy Y12’s received his A.B. degree at the University of Florida, where he majored in German and gained fame with his bass viol in both the symphonic and dance orchestras. Prior to embarking for the South, Fred fronted his own syncopating sextet at various niteries in Atlantic City. This same metropolis yielded the
vivacious and artful Lois Clark, with whom he tied the nuptial knot in 1941.
Deft approximation of skin edges in suture cases and careful diagnostics were the specialties of this Babcock Honor Society member while working evenings in the accident dispensary during his last two school years. Our downtown dances enjoyed added success when Fred could be persuaded to take over the bass man’s chores for several numbers. Internship—Atlantic City Hospital.

With fondness do we pen these insufficient lines concerning one of the most congenial lads of our group. Amiable A1 majored in chemistry at Temple University, where he earned his A.B. degree and was among the foremost scholars in his class. His high scholastic attainments have been maintained in his medical pursuance which his duality has combined with a foot-loose and fancy-free air outside the lecture room. I lardworking and fun-loving Finey has held down
secretary and treasurer posts at the popular Phi Delt House. His furloughs were worthily spent with itineraries carrying him as far south as Havana and as far north as Toronto, Canada. The son of an eminent barrister in Philadelphia, A1 remains undecided upon a specialty, but we are certain that his keen medical insight will move him to the top rung in whatever field he may choose. Internship — Temple University Hospital.

Dry humor characterizes Roger’s contributions —laconic, though not at all trenchant, he is, above all. a most enjoyable companion and colleague. A native Philadelphian, Wesleyan University is his alma mater. At undergrad school biology and chemistry held Roger's chief interest. He belonged to clubs tor both subjects and shared his major between them.
Golf and squash intrigue him. each having its share of his time off for fun. Soccer while at college and activities as camp counsellor up in the woods of Maine have kept Roger in shape for doing a good job on one of Uncle Sammy's battle wagons, as of soon. Internship—Lankenau Hospital.

FiftyIf asked to select the most thorough member of our class, Ted’s name would certainly be high on the list considered. At the undergraduate school Lips, as his intimates would call him. had the unique distinction of majoring in both biology and chemistry and his efficiency was rewarded by election to the Pyramid Senior Honor Society. I hiring college days, Ted's spare time was spent as a ladies' shoe salesman, beach-
chair attendant, camp counsellor, platform man at the Railway Express, and embryo Lothario. At medical school we have all l een impressed with Ted’s keenness as a student and sincerity as a friend and are certain that the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology will l e enriched by the addition of his searching thoroughness.

A product of the far-west. Dick made the long jaunt from his native Idaho to learn his medicine at the crossroads of Broad and Ontario.
Acquiring a B.S. at the University of Idaho in 1941, Dick interwove his knowledge of chemistry and zoology with a versatile pattern of extracurricular activities, including phosphorus mining, speed boating, swimming and golf.
At Idaho he sported the badge of Kappa Sigma, while here at Temple lie was a member of Phi Beta Pi.
Dick has been a substantial married man throughout his sojourn at Temple, having married Laurene Homer on July 23, 1942. A real student, the doctor from God’s country has completed twelve hours toward an M.S. in Zoology.
He will journey together with the rest of the enterprising Temple contingent to Jersey City Medical Center, where we feel assured that he will prove an appropriate disciple of the fine medical education we have received.

From the Scottdale, Pa., grammar and high schools, via Allegheny College. Dick came to us sporting a Bachelor of Arts degree and an unobtrusive manner. Interested in golf and swimming for exercise, Dick’s big interest is in music (apropos of which might be mentioned those jam-sessions up in his room).
Numerous heavy jobs, among which were
miner, laborer and cokeyard worker, kept Dick in shape between semesters of college. This physical development was put to good use on the swimming and soccer teams at undergraduate school, while Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Phi Beta Phi Honorary Biological Society saw fit to elect him to membership. Internship—Methodist Episcopal Hospital.

Greenie's congenial nature is quite evident in his appearance and actions. The mental stress of medical school did little to change his equilibrium. He came from the undergraduate school, where he majored in biology. Xot only is he a student of quality, but also a talented musician, “swing music” being his forte—a clever way of
mixing work and play. Medicine and marriage to Dorothy Erna, however, have been added to exert sobering and maturing influences since those gay college swing days. He expects to go into internal medicine and with so much appeal he is certain to succeed in this, or any field. Internship —Newark City Hospital.
Fifty-eightHal’s talents are not entirely restricted to the field of medicine as this budding pathologist is also a musician, tennis player, swimmer and bridge player of some distinction. Undergraduate days were spent at Broad and Montgomery, where he decided that biology was easily the most interesting subject in the curriculum. His interest in this field was manifested by his publication. ‘'Some Variations in the Basic Metabolic Levels in Rats.'’ To most members of the class
Hal is somewhat reserved, but those who know him intimately will say that he definitely has his moments. In the latter months of the sophomore year, when most of us lesser lights were toiling with “Smith and Gault." we realized that another Virchow was in our midst. Mow a year and a half later we are quite certain that Hal will easily fulfill our prediction of a career brightened with success and achievement. Internship— Fordham Hospital. New York City. X. Y.

A product of Erie, Pa., Dick has followed in his father’s footsteps in the practice of medicine. While acquiring a B.S. at Washington and Jefferson, Dick was an active frater in Phi Gamma Delta and amused himself during the summer with golf and tennis. 11 is inherent versatility led him into unusual occupational fields, not the least of which consisted in extolling the virtues of the vaunted Fuller brush to the good housewives of Erie. Forsaking the uncertainty of the brush drummer game, he next became a dependable employee of Talon Zipper. Inc., thus
doing much to boom the stock of this nation-famed article of apparel. While at Temple. Dick has really proven his worth as a student, as his election to the Babcock Surgical Society bears out.
On July 29. 1943. Dr. Jackson and his wife, Julia, heard the wedding bells toll. In the future they will be at home to their many friends at Erie, where Dick will pursue what we know will be a very successful internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Philadelphia presents another of her sons to the medical profession in Bill. He was really born in Camden, X. J., but his residence in Philadelphia makes him a son. Bill attended Denison University, where he majored in zoology, music and psychology. He was a member of Epsilon Tail Iota and the American Commons Club. Track, tennis and basketball were his athletic inclinations. Bill couldn't lie around during vacations. so his jobs were as clerk and meter in-
spector for the Philadelphia Electric Co., lifeguard for the city and a counsellor at tlie Blue Mountain Camp. Bill married Alexandria A. McLean last April, thus joining our class' "Contented Club.” Alex and Bill enjoy music, archery, tennis, swimming and riding together. Bill will intern in the Navy with reservations on the future for a general practice, and maybe surgery later.
This famous name first introduced us to physical diagnosis—it was Dick’s father, the late Dr. James Kay. diagnostician and Philadelphia physician. It didn’t take any of us long to know Dick and to enjoy his genial humor and at the same time appreciate his serious moments in and about the medical school.
Dick has always been a Philadelphia boy. but
has travelled in Scotland. England, Ireland, France and Nova Scotia. He majored in chemistry at Haverford College and sang in the glee club. His hobbies are sailing, swimming and photography.

This distinguished-looking gentleman has endeared himself with fellow-classmates at Temple, not only because of his avid interest in medicine, but because of his agreeable personality and friendly attitude (which is surpassed only by his modesty).
Clayton took his first two years of premedical work at Concordia College, Minnesota. From here he went to the North Dakota State College, where in 1942 he received his B.S. degree with majors in biology and chemistry. He seemed to
be attracted to the state, for he remained to take his B.S. in Medicine at the University of North Dakota. His summer jobs have been as numerous as his talents—clerking, harvester, forester, shipbuilder. student health assistant and instructor of physiology at North Dakota State College for a time.
When you meet him at future alumni meetings remember that he prefers to have his last name pronounced correctly—Klakeg as “Clay-Keg.” City. N. I.

Musically bent. Steve was in the glee club at college and played the viola.
He has spent his summers traveling in Tennessee and Colorado, as well as being a "tree expert" for the United States Department of Agriculture and a laborer on the Reading Railroad. As a senior.

(To further contuse a variegated residential background) he went away to University of Delaware. returned to graduate from Swarthmore College and thence to Temple University.
While at the University of Delaware he majored in zoology, was a member of the University of Delaware player's guild and participated
in soccer, fencing and track. He found time to peregrinate a bit between changes of residence, and visited California, Florida and the New England states. This was undoubtedly of value to him in his “summer time” occupation of travel bureau agent.

Ralph spent his undergraduate days way down south at Alabama, where lie majored in biology and chemistry and received a B.A. degree. I le was a member of the Alpha Delta Alpha Fraternity there. For athletic diversion he turns to the ring and the cinders. Collecting records and refinishing old furniture as well as watching sporting events (viva la Garden State!!) “while away” his idle hours.
Ralph has held a variety of jobs. He worked as a roller in a steel mill, and as trainer for a professional football team. Me will intern at Newark City Hospital and when the opportunity presents hopes to specialize in pediatrics. An excellent choice of a specialty for one so “down to earth.”

One Hundred NineteenZach is one of those fortunates among us who is proficient in almost everything he does— whether it is playing bridge or making diagnoses. At the undergraduate school, where he majored in biology, it became evident that “gladly wolde he lerne and gladly teche.” One of his first moves at Medical School was to marry Lil Topkis on February 7, 1943—this almost precipitated an epidemic of marriages within the class.
His leisure moments are spent in playing chess and bridge, writing and travelling. It is quite certain that Zach’s rare combination of natural brilliance, complete training and interest in the people and events around him can only lead to a high place in his chosen field of internal medicine.

Albright College of Reading, Pa., presented this charming belle with a B.S. degree in June, 1942. and she straightforth added beauty to our ranks in August of the same year. Much interested in sports, Elaine proficiently participated in basketball, hockey and softball while at school, where she romped and yelled as a spirited cheerleader for three seasons. With the entailments and chores of medical school. Elaine has blossomed into a sedate, much-admired bearer of the
Hippocratic torch. Paramount in Elaine’s munificent life was the moment of matrimonial pageantry, in which the dashing Tommy Van den Bosch was cast as the male lead.

Tom attended Villanova and received a B.S. in Biology. His merits as a student were rewarded by his election to L. K. D., an honorary
organization. Summers were occupied by jobs which fit his stature, namely, laborer, mechanic and gas attendant. Tom also found time to visit thirty-six of the forty-eight states. Internal medicine is his special interest and we are all expecting great things from this great fellow. Internship—Jersey City Medical Center. Jersey City. N. J.

When Lord Byron wrote. “Whose quiet conscience makes him so sincere.” lie must have had Seymour in mind, for this observation fits him like a custom tailored suit. He attended the undergraduate school and majored in the pre-medical sciences and was also elected to the Hammond Pre-Medical Society. Following his graduation the pharmacy school was graced by his presence for two years. Even those who were not ac-
quainted with this fact must have surmised it by Seymour's uncanny ability to write prescriptions after the first hour of instruction in this subject. When not occupied otherwise, he finds relaxation in music, bridge and swimming. The specialty of internal medicine is certain to be enhanced by the addition of his talents.

Sammy may well l e remembered as the peer of any or all in diagnostic acumen. In spite of maintaining the precedent he set in his freshman year of "rarely-being-on-time,” he managed with equal assiduousness to make consistently accurate observations on our countless protocols and clinic patients.
Soft-spoken Sam comes to Temple from Middletown. N. Y., having received his B.S. degree from Hobart College. His wife, the former Miss Katherine Chappell, attended Hobart's sister
college, William Smith. They were married in December, 1943, in Middletown.

Temple has few alumni who manifest any more school spirit than Seymour. At college he majored in chemistry and in his senior year became an expert in the synthesis of all types of diphenyl-nitrates. As one would surmise from his size, football, basketball, baseball and women are his main diversions. However, on November 26. 1944. he announced his engagement to Miss Rose Myers and this is certain to interfere with
at least one of his activities. At Medical School his scholastic ability was recognized by his election to the Babcock Society. In conclusion, what higher praise can be given a man than to say that he is friendly and sociable? Since he combines this quality with a thorough understanding of his subject. Seymour is certain to go far in his chosen field. Internship—Jewish Hospital.

One hundred forty-nineAFFILIATED HOSPITALS
TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
The original hospital located at Broad and Ontario Streets, was called The North Philadelphia Hospital, and its founders were a group of physicians who felt there was an urgent need for a hospital in this section of Philadelphia. The need was present but the financial spport was lacking and the hospital was about to undergo dissolution in 1891 when they appealed to Doctor Con well for aid. Doctor Conwell’s efficient management and his ability to interest others, brought success to the hospital.
From that time on Doctor Conwell continued his interest in and association with the hospital which had been renamed Samaritan Hospital. When the Medical Department of Temple College was opened in 1901, some of the classes were held in this building.
In 1907 the Garretson Hospital was acquired and enlarged. It functioned as a general hospital until 1924, supplementing the clinical instruction given at the Samaritan Hospital.
Realizing the necessity for additional practical work in obstetrics. Doctor Conwell founded the Greatheart Hospital in 1923 at 1810-12 Spring Garden Street. Its work was transfered nine years later to Broad and Ontario Streets, becoming the maternity department of the medical school's main hospital.
The Samaritan Hospital was greatly enlarged by a new addition in 1925. It was not until 1929 that the name was changed to Temple University Hospital. Since then Temple University Medical School and Hospital have risen to a respected and commanding position in all branches of medicine.

The Hospital of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, or hotter known to us as “Episcopal” has established for itself an enviable record of service to this city.
We will long remember the spacious wards where many of us received our first practical experience in physical diagnosis. This year under the guidance of Dr. Farrar and his assistants, a portion of the class has had an interesting and profitable medical service.
Temple students are extremely fortunate in having an affiliation with Municipal Hospital for Contagious Diseases. Here we study in the largest and oldest contagious disease hospital in the Western Hemisphere. At the present time, thousands of patients pass through the hospital yearly. The student can see almost any type of contagious disease at almost any time he wishes. The record of the hospital is the envy of many other such hospitals throughout the country.
One hundred fifty-oneE AG LEV ILLE SA XITORIUM Our Dr. A. J. Cohen and his associates founded Eagleville Sanatorium in 1909. Since its inception, Eagle-ville has been a pioneer in improving the technique of tuberculosis treatment. It was one of the first hospitals to use pneumothorax and is well known throughout the world for its pioneering work in the surgical treatment of tuberculosis.
PHILADELPHIA GENERAL HOSPITAL
No hospital on this continent has more tradition or a longer record of service than Philadelphia General. It is the oldest hospital in America and one of the largest. An idea of its influence on American medicine is shown by the fact that 29 medical schools were founded by men who trained here.
Wednesday is Temple day at P.G.H. and it is here we go to be called down into the pit to be quizzed on a disease or surgical condition we thought we never would see because of its rarity.

Jewish Hospital was founded in 1865 and dedicated to the relief of the sick and wounded without regard to race, creed or color. From its modest beginning, the hospital has undergone great expansion through the guidance of its dynamic Board of Directors. It now occupies 23 acres at York and Tabor Roads. There are many buildings and each unit boasts the lx;st of equipment. Its wards are clean, comfortable and quiet.
In 1923 the hospital became affiliated with Temple University School of Medicine through the cooperation and kindness of its Board of
Directors. Since then. Temple students have had the privilege of instruction by the staff of Jewish Hospital and the use of their wards for practical medical work.
Here as sophomores we are taught the principles and mechanics of physical diagnosis. Then once again as seniors we come back for practical medicine and therapeutics at the hands of their efficient staff. A high spot in the memory of every Temple graduate are those rapid-fire quiz sections of Dr. Doane which so neatly prick the bubble of senior self-satisfaction.

The fraternity has been a common ground on which the students could come to know personally the men they so admire as teachers.
Under the able precept of Art Burton, and with the largest membership in its short history. Beta F.ta is now one of the most active chapters in the national fraternity. Through this activity. the fraternity has been able to furnish an essential part of a medical student’s life; that of good fellowship, relaxation, and inspiration. which arise from association with a varied group. In this way a medical student does not become divorced from the world about him. but is constantly stimulated by new ideas and opinions.
With the faculty and student representation engaged in a common quest for medical and surgical knowledge, the future holds great advancement for the members and the spirit of Phi Beta Pi.

THE men who chartered Theta Upsilon of Phi Chi in 1910 started inauspiciously, but with views to the future. Today Phi Chi boasts a large house at 1512 West Allegheny Avenue and the largest membership in its history. With its large, yet well co-ordinated membership, the fraternity has prospered. By the industry of its members almost every room in the house has been repainted, and the basement has been completely redesigned and decorated for recreational purposes. To the nineteen members who live there, it is home while in medical school. The best meals in four years have served to supplement this feeling, as well as to offer the non-resident members the advantages of conviviality and convenience.
The social program during the past year has been marked with success. From individual
and informal groups to fraternity-sponsored parties there has been a maximum utilization of the house facilities in preference to downtown cafes. Dancing, card-playing, jam sessions by the musically inclined, singing, as well as volleyball when weather permitted have been outstanding features of these gatherings.
On the more serious side, the function of the fraternity to help the student accomplish his courses lias been well served. Review sessions in the basic sciences, educational movies, and guest speakers have helped point up the primary objectives of the student membership. As an added privilege, many of the faculty have joined us for dinner and informal conversation. These features together with pre-examination and clinical case bull sessions have made this a successful and well rounded year for Phi Chi.

One hundred sixty-onePHI ALPHA SIGMA
PHI ALPHA SIGMA
PHI ALPHA SIGMA was founded in 1886 at the Bellevue Hospital Medical College to become the first medical fraternity in the United States. The lota Chapter was established at Temple in 1932 by Drs. Wilmer Krusen, Samuel B. Hadden, and Nelson B. Davis.
Phi Alpha has progressed steadily in recent years. Not only do we boast of a large membership of fine fellows, but also of an excellent physical and financial status of the house (in spite of a persecuting Fire Marshal!).
Adolph, the skeleton, an album of heart records, our small library, and a stereoscopic set of drawings in anatomy and pathology all serve to increase our knowledge of medicine. To further supplement the medical course, guest speakers are invited periodically throughout the year to give talks before the members.
Our parties are enjoyed equally as much by the brothers as well as by their friends. The
new cellar, with its varied assortment of games, and a modest collection of dance records keep things moving on those Saturday nights.
There are several Fraternity functions during the year which bring the Chapters closer together. The Concilium Magnum Banquet which is held in New York or Philadelphia brings the medical undergraduate in contact with Brother Phi Alph’s who have graduated many years before and are now doing their part to make the medical profession as esteemed as it is. The Tri-Chapter Dance in Philadelphia is another highlight of fraternity life. Our greatest triumph each year is to defeat the Jefferson Chapter in our annual Glutton Contest. which has been going on among Phi Alpha Sigma chapters for thirty-five years.
Phi Alph certainly has made our four years at Temple fuller, pleasanter, and more successful. We trust that those who follow will derive the same benefits and enjoyment at 3336 N. 16th St. as we did.

ALPHA LAMBDA Chapter of- Phi Rho Sigma began its fourth war year by taking into its fraternal halls fourteen new members from as far west as California and as far south as Porto Rico.
This year was the twelfth anniversary of Phi Rho Sigma at its chapter house at 3232 North Sixteenth Street. In 1932 the Alpha Lambda Chapter was added to the fraternity family of Temple Medical School. It has been built up under the guidance of Drs. Robert Ridpath, Norman MacNeill and the late Drs. A. C. Morgan and Harry Hibschman to a point
where it has been able to assume its responsibility in supporting the student body of its Medical School through the critical war years.
Through the tics of Phi Rho Sigma, its members have been joined socially to discuss the day’s problems in medicine, politics, war and economics, to dance, to gain new ideas, and to broaden their acquaintances.
As in years past the Alpha Lambda Chapter joined with its brother chapters here in the city at Penn and JefTerson Medical Schools to hold its annual Tri Chapter dance in the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

One hundred sixty-fivePHI DELTA ■: P S I L O
P .YCE its origin in 1904, I'hi Delta Epsilon ha$ established 71 chapters and graduate clubs throughout the world. Sigma had its l)e-ginnings at Temple in 1917 and at the present time has Drs. Matthew Ersner and Isador Forman as its capable advisors.
The past year has been a busy and fruitful one for all of us. Fraternity activities have been stepped up to match the pace of the accelerated sch(K l program and the demands of the largest body of members that Sigma has had. A well organized scries of scientific meetings has been presented almost entirely under the direction and participation of the students themselves. The "guest sj eakcr" highlight of the year took place when Dr. Morris Fishbein. secretary of the American Medical Association and a member of the Fraternity, gave his views to the
student body and faculty concerning the future of American medicine in the post-war world.
In its recreational program, the chapter has been very much alive. The Fraternity House at 1033 Spruce street has been the Saturday night hub for dances attended by all four chapters in the city, with the presence or absence of lights throughout the house always indicating activity. The stag sessions have l)een numerous with much tossing of the bull and the development of chance into an exact science. Many times during the past year, fraternity men now in the armed forces on distant battlefronts have returned for a few hours to “1033” to recapture the spirit of their student days and to share their experiences with those of us who are anxious to follow in their footsteps.

One hundred sixty-sevenIIA1ICOCK Silt (.HA I SOCIETY
BABCOCK SURGICAL SOCIETY
SINCE its founding thirty-eight years ago, tlie chief aim of the Babcock Surgical Society lias been to keep in close touch with the most recent advances and trends in surgery. This has l)een accomplished through the presentation of pajiers by the Senior members followed by informal discussion, by movies, and by outstanding guest speakers. Dr. Babcock still maintains active interest in the Society and its affairs. The meetings of the past year were highlighted by Dr. Babcock’s address on “The Progress of Surgery.”
Under the able guidance of this year's President. Schuyler Bissell, the meetings have lieen a great success, and have enabled the student members of the society to become better acquainted with guests from our own faculty as
well as those from other institutions. Each year the members have an opportunity to meet the faculty informally at the annual picnic, and again at the traditional banquet at which time new members are officially presented to our patron.
The members of the Society are from the upper three classes and are chosen by the faculty and student members on the basis of personality, character, and scholastic achievement.
We have gained much from the papers and discussions and the friendly atmosphere of the meetings, but we have gained even more from the inspiration and guidance of the great man whom the society honors.

Two hundred twenty-twoMISS RENA WHITE
Miss White has always been our ideal of the perfect teacher. Her stately manner and quiet dignity do not in any way interfere with her appreciation of a good joke.
Classes with Miss White are always interesting, and in each of them emphasis is placed on getting the subject matter across to YOU.
Thank you Miss White for your excellent teaching of theory and for being such a wonderful example of the highest ideals of Nursing.
The Educational Department, which is composed of Miss White and her start”. Miss Murray. Miss Smith. Miss Jones. Miss Baldowski and Miss Homa has been doing a wonderful job, and we are sure will continue to do so.
two hundred twenty-threeLOOKING BACK
Remember that first day in training, when everyone thought that Miss I ones was just one of the students; our roommates were just the opposite of what we expected, and oh that first night! The inauguration of many glorious pajama parties to come. And also our first reprimand about "Lights Out.” these have not been few and far between.
Walking around the city on those sweltering days, sightseeing. That tour through the hospital, the now familiar sights seemed so strange then.
That first day in class when we found out that Mr. Bones wasn’t the end man in a minstrel show and Mrs. Chase wasn’t the other half of Chase and Sanborn.
That first session on the floors with surgical gowns, saddle shoes and stockings for accessories, many of us were mistaken for "M.D’s,” and remember when a student rubbed a patient’s back with cleanser!
At long last wc received our caps, we all moved around rather gingerly for weeks. The first class bloc when we all wore our regulation sweaters on an outing to Hunting Park. We looked like refugees from an orphan asylum. Then full time floor duty, tackling 2B with courage and optimism.
Those first night duty terms, how we envied the girls who drew Babcock Ward. We became intimately acquainted with the term "D.O.” Those were the days of the interminable Saturday night conferences in the N.S.O. “Will the new night duty girls please pay particular attention.”
The exodus, wheel barrows and wagons up Tioga Street in September ’43 to our beautiful new home.
The important feeling and added responsibility of those first black stripes on our caps, efficiency records to be signed.
And then second Class Bloc. Oh those Saturday morning quizzes! Remember Margie Martincc and the herring in her coat pocket? Obs. and Delivery Room, beating the path up and down 4 Main carrying babies.
O. R. and Nanovic under the table trying to find the other end of the string sponge.
Oh Joy. Seniors at last! Much rejoicing and trying to look dignified, added responsibilities, and taking charge of the ward, and trying to set a good example for the younger students.
Some of our favorite classmates left to spend their Senior Cadet period in the service soon after the February section of our class finished. Will you ever forget the farewell party wc had for them up in 8-2??
Yes. looking back has been fun. but no doubt looking forward will even prove to be more exciting. »-•«. .'a
The reunion was formally opened by Millieent Schlcgel Ohpeim and seconded by her twins. Whereupon they were sent to the back room to play with the other little guests, of whom there were many.
It certainly is gratifying to see all these familiar faces, of course there have been changes in lines—and figures!
There's Margie Zcmalis down from Alaska with her St. Bernard dog and his unusual collar, she always did manage to bring good refreshments, thanks Marge!
The matrons of the younger married set just walked in. among them are the former Rosemary Myers. Julie Palmer. Kay Mihalik, Marge Kundrat, Betty Milford. Ruth Shelley, Bess Davis. Evelyn Wagner. I.ois Van dampen. Lois Hocken, Jo Campbell. Viv Reed and Clare Jones. They all look very happy, there’s quite a crowd in the back room, too!
Who is this dignified looking individual, can it be. yes it is Dottie Krcpps! She’s actually found time from her duties as Directress of Nurses in a large western hospital to fly here for the reunion. We hear she's very strict with her students. My how times have changed!
There is a liberal sprinkling of khaki and navy blue among the crowd. Almost three quarters of our class went into the service the year we graduated. Now that the war is over at last, a large number have stayed on to help with the huge job of rehabilitating the liberated countries. We’re proud of you girls, keep up the good work.
I think 1 see Sally Barstlcr, Dr. Wycis’ scrub nurse, she's come a long way since she tried to use a floor mop to wipe his brow. Betty Shuster brought along the latest issue of the American Journal of Nursing. She's now editor of that eminent publication.
Harriet Heath can only stay a few minutes, she has to get back to the sauitonum she owns. I think it's called Health’s Heidelburg Health Haven.
Betty Schlcsingcr is taking care of the hack room, she never could get away from nursery work it seems.
Gerry Smith has promised to sing for us this afternoon. Her recording of “Angels of Mercy” has brought thousands of dollars into the Red Cross treasury. Hi Gerry I
The Goodyear cousins are passing out samples. They're employed as industrial nurses in the Smith Brothers’ Cough Drop factory. We hear they are going to marry their employers.
We have philanthropists in our class, too. In memory of their struggling days as student nurses, Flo. Arledge and Peg Caldwell are touring the country handing out shoe polish, shoe laces, cokes and cigarettes to all the student nurses they can find. Remember those days in 1945 when cigarettes were so scarce?
This has been a wonderful reunion. I’ll have to hurry to get back on duty. I m still a senior! People always said it would take me 10 years to finish training. Goodbye now, see you next year as a graduate. I hope! Soulful Senior.

"Kay’s” sunny temperament matches her hair. She hopes to join the Navy as an O. R. nurse, but we wonder whether she won’t become a Navy wife instead.
JULIA PALMER Wayne, Pa.
“Julie”, a Florida miss with a broad smile and a cheerful manner, is a good friend and a faithful nurse. With these assets she will leave her mark in the world.
Two hundred thirty-fourVIYIAX X. REED Hanover. Pa.

BETTY SCHLESSIXGER Avis, Pa.
“Schles” is a tall thin lass who surprised her classmates when she lost that quiet unassuming manner this past year. We will always remember her gentle and sincere manner.

EVELYN COPE Palmerton, Pa.
"Copie” has one of the angel faces of the class and a disposition to fit it. Every once in a while, just to make her personality spicy, a bit of impishness appears. The title “Angel of Mercy” really applies to her.
Two hundred forty-two
MARGARET COWLEY Asbury Park. N. J.
Vivacioiis, sincere, a true friend. We can't help noticing those pretty dimples. The trio of Campbell, Cowley and Davis. It you want an honest opinion ask "Peg”. Anesthegiology— probably the Navy Nurse Corps;

E. H. VALENTINE, M.D. Directress of Laboratories
TECHNICIANS who have been trained in " ■ the Temple School of Technology have acquired an enviable reputation for excellence of training and general dependability, a reputation built on the individual ability of the students and the wide scope and practical nature of their course of training. The school of Technology is still relatively young and thus subject to the changes which come with growth and with the demands of difficult times. The important thing is that the standard of training must progress, keeping pace with advances in medical science and with the increasing responsibility for scientific accomplishment which is being placed on the medical technician.
In addition to the increasingly recognized need for thorough undergraduate training in the sciences, this calls for fundamental didactic training in the medical sciences, in order that the practical training of the student technician shall be met with greater understanding of the principles and problems involved.
With this in mind, more complete and comprehensive lectures are contemplated by the various departments for the coming session, to be concentrated in the early months of the course, so that the student may enter the departments of the laboratory with a basic understanding of the procedures she is to learn. Complete lecture courses in Bacteriology.
Txvo hundred sixty-twoCLASS OF 1945
Parasitology, Physiologic Chemistry, Hematology and the allied subjects are planned, designed especially for the needs of technicians.
The acquisition of the Scopicon by the Department of Pathology, an instrument which permits the study of microscopic material by relatively large groups, is already proving an excellent adjunct to instruction in Hematology, and even wider use of this medium is planned for the future. This is an opportunity for the
study of blood cells and bone marrow physiology in health and disease which is invaluable to student technicians, and represents a great advance in their training.
The primary obligation of the school is the best jjossible training and the individual and collective welfare of its students. With this aim in mind it is to be hoped that the school will maintain and increase its reputation for excellence.

“Our Miss Mac”c H ’-'OOr OZffiOtnH r oMOw
CLASS OF 1945
“ ABANDON hope, all ye who enter here." We were to re-member this befitting epitaph many times in the next two years. Yes, it is two years since that eventful day when we walked into "Miss Mac’s” office and faltering! v announced ourselves as would-be technicians. We were horror-stricken to learn that we would have to venture forth on our own, in different laboratories.
Numbly we found the lab we were assigned to. and numbly we spent the day watching the "older girls" work, attempting simple tests, learning the hospital for the never-ending charting, listening to the girls spout out sixty-four dollar words and wondering if we would ever know what they mean. Lunchtime, our first introduction to Kcesal’s, that gripe session paradise. Funny how tired we were at the end of the first day, particularly when we felt so useless!
But it ended—bv the end of the first week we were veterans—this business of lieing a technician was a cinch. That’s what we thought, naive as we were. It took a while to convince us otherwise, but find out we did—the hard way.
Urinalysis with its rows and rows of bottles, from milk to perfume, really kept us stepping. We tested and searched and never thought the day would come when Miss Rotman would admit that what we had on the scope was a cast and not just a scratch on the slide. Remember our first experience with ye oldc Sanborn basal machine and how lucky we thought we were when outpatient neither suffocated nor drowned? And our first venipuncture was a real work of art! How the needle ever got into the vein when we were shaking so is an eternal mystery. The patient didn’t faint, hut we almost did. And that good old "sink test." at least once a month someone accidentally performed it. Having mastered the p’s and q’s of this department, we courageously sailed on.
Reading hemo’s. cleaning pipettes, and doing coags kept us busy in Hematology. In between, we practiced test tube counts until we were adept enough at them to try the McCoy. Off we started, hope high in our hearts, our little boxes swinging beside us. only to return dejected and crestfallen, about an hour later. "That baby in children's ward just doesn't have any blood." "Mr. So and So in 2C won’t let me stick him." "So I get all the way up there and haven’t got any diluting fluid.” And so it went, and so we learned.
With empty stomachs (we had been warned) we entered the department of Castries. Our first attempt at tube passing found us choking and gasping right along with the patient, and some of
them must have been surprised by a hasty. “Excuse me. I'll be right back.” We got over that before long, and surprisingly, as we improved, they did. Remember how glad we were to see "B" bile? No olive oil. In the afternoon we learned titrating, cytology, and the intricacies of gin rummy.
In Pathology and Histology, we learned to fix. cut, and stain tissues. We found that obtaining a ribbon wasn't as easy a job as it looked, but requires much skill and practice. It always broke at the darndest times, and was accompanied by a muffled (censored). We took an artist’s delight in looking at the color range of tissues stained with II E. and marveled at the fluidity with which a frozen section was done. Between times we spent visiting the stiff and staff rooms.
We thought we knew what cleaning needles meant until we hit Allergy and Blood Bank, but we soon decided that they can multiply faster than rabbits. There were a million of them, and miles and miles of rubber tubing. Will you ever forget the tense moments we spent making that three hour deadline, picketing those pesky pyrogens? And the way we stood and popped syringes for hours? And making dustCLASS OF 1945
extracts? And Miss Bentons classic comment. “Don't touch me,
In each of our preceding labs we had known responsibility, but full realization of what the word really means dawned on us when we entered Blood Typing and Crossing. Never did we work more carefully, and never did we feel more unsure of ourselves.
Those heavenly words “Xo reaction." always sent a thrill ot thanksgiving through us. But this too had its lighter side—trying to keep agglutinins and agglutinogens straight, typing donors who never materialized in groups of less than ten. and passing smelling salts around to fainting ones, and it’s the truth, the bigger they are. the harder they fall.
The end of our first month in Chemistry found us dishwashers par excellence, tube oxalaters of no mean dispute, and slowly getting over the horror of our first meeting with stool specimens. Our second month found us floundering helplessly in the maze of COTs. X.P.X.’s. thiocyanates, and a few dozen other little tests. By the end of the third month we were handling these and more complicated tests with all the ease and assurance of a prestidigitator. Xoteworthies from this lab—the way Dr. Hamilton could always tell when the water bath had boiled dry, the way the mercury always spilled over the top of the machine, the split second timing of our phosphatases, getting up at the crack of dawn to make 6:30 A. M. clinic, and the way carriage always decided your mood of the day. Oh. almost forgot, our little trips down the ball, a body's got to have some relaxation !
Serology, with its complicated principles and techniques, taught us the Mazzini, Kalin. Kolmer. colloidal gold and various other complement fixation and agglutination tests. We'll never forget bleeding guinea pigs, the absolute horror when we got a mouthful. Mrs. Lynch's round table discussions. the way we shook when we had our oral with Dr. Kolmer. our Tuesday afternoon eat-ins, and last, but not least, the unholy delight we took in unearthing a good plus four. Tch. tch.
In Parasitology we had so many stool specimens we liecame almost immune to the Chanel Xo. 5 side of them. W'c struggled with names like Opisthorchis telineus and Acanthocheilonema perstans and were so proud when we finally mastered them, along with their life cycles. We assisted Mr.
Lamberti with his class and were so pleased when we could say. “Why that’s histolytica, of course.'
Bacteriology brought with it T.B. slides, half an hour per. a new system of charting, and endless plugging and wrapping of pipettes. We sweltered valiantly in the kitchen, feeling like Master Chefs as we prepared our meat infusion broth, potato media and chocolate agar. Remember our first day of reading plates, when "usual throat flora'' looked like an unidentifiable mass, and we began to realize that the nose, as well as the eye, comes in handy in identifying E. coli. B. pyocyancus. and Staph. Rod set ups and pneumo typings sank into obscurity with the coming of our unknown and research paper.
Well, that’s what happened in the two years we’ve been here. That and so much more. We started out as fledgling technicians and ended up as qualified medical technologists. For this, we owe a vote of thanks to all our instructresses. Drs. Spaulding, Bondi and Mr. Lamberti. For assistance far beyond the call of duty, special laurels to Dr. Hamilton, who endeared himself to us by his unfailing good humor and understanding. and to Dr. Gault, so kind and witty, who always asked the time at five minutes of the hour, then kept us in class until fifteen minutes after.
Abandon hope? We couldn’t!!!
