Department of Mygiem Our Naval careers will carry us into many places where medi- cal aid and advice will not be readily available. It will be neces- sary for us, as officers, to care for ourselves and our men when the time comes. The Hygiene Department takes over the task at the Academy of instructing us in what amounts to a general study of Medicine. We were a long ways from being doctors when we finished the course, but we were somewhat learned in the func- tions and malfunctions of the human body, and the Hygiene De- partment thus accomplished its purpose. The course consisted of a series of Saturday morning lectures and descriptive movies. In these lectures and movies the department attempted to give us the " straight dope " on causes and effects. The final class, a movie on practical first aid, was very instructive. We learned how to use the Navy ' s versatile battle dressings, splints, wound powders, morphine syrettes, and stretchers. The several show- ings of morphine injections to kill pain was too much for one fellow. He fainted dead away, and when the lights came on, the doc had a patient. Many of our Sick Boy Doctors gave up lucrative civilian practices in order to serve in the Novy. They handled our ills quickly and efficiently. Capt.E.H.Sporkman.MC.USN, Senior Medical Officer " It won ' t be long now. " ' ' jf , ' ■■ ■ I- - . f S T;t ■ ; ' i M 1 ' 9 1 ■ 1 m 1 ' 1 ( t I- r • ;?«5 H H

The inevitable Navy line. Must be Donald Duck. Say " Ml " We midshipmen are human, and on some mornings we awak- ned to discover that our physical machines just couldn ' t make he grade. If the morning exercises didn ' t perk us up, and we still ooked as white as a sheet, the only logical thing to do was to nswer sick call and obtain medical aid. Sick Quarters are in the lasement of the fourth wing, and like Sick Bay aboard ship, is omplete in almost every detail. Like most other Naval activities there was a line in which to wait upon arrival. A Corpsman gave us a form to fill out and took our temperature. Then one by one we filed into the office of the Medical Officer of the Day. The Doctor diagnosed our cases and took action to get us well again. This action may have been merely a pill, or it may have been a few days in the Sick Ward, or even a trip to the hospital. " Something you ate, no doubt. " Captain A. W. Chandler, D.C, USN, Senior Dental Officer " Open wide. " ::! ' . 38
