ROSWELL K. BROWN ,
If words could ever be made to express one's gratitude to a single individual, then
this dedication to Dr. Roswell K. Brown would tall tar short of any such attempt.
As physician and surgeon, teacher, student, and now co-assistant Dean of the Medical
School, he has managed by his own inimitable fashion to make us realize the tallacies of
knowledge without perspective. A living example of this philosophy along with his quick
humor, professional integrity and able assistance to one and all, he has quickly sustained
the admiration of all.

To Doctor Bernard Wakefield we respectfully dedicate our Medentian-To honor his great
skill, his ability to inspire, his teaching acumen and his paramount place in the profession.
IT ALL BEGAN .
In l894, there was published in a local newspaper: "lt gives the faculty of the insti-
tution the greatest pleasure to make this announcement-the new building is completed-
because they feel that they have the most tasteful, comfortable and best arranged medical
college edifice in the United States-perhaps even in the world." So was announced the
completion of the present medical school on High Street, an event heralded with mucli
acclaim by Buffalonians at that time.
The charter for the Medical School of the University of Buffalo was granted in TS46,
with instruction given in the old Baptist church building, on Washington and Seneca Streets.
Its second home was erected in 1849 on Main and Virginia streets at a cost of fifteen
thousand dollars raised by public subscription, while the present location on High Street
was established in March l893.
The organization of the Medical School, was effected by a group headed by Dr. Austin
Flint serving as "Professor of the Principle and Practice of Clinical Medicine", until l852.
The remainder of the faculty, totaling seven physicians included Dr. Frank H. Hamilton,
Professor of Surgery, Dr. James P. White, Professor of Obstetrics and Dr. James C. Dalton
as Physiologist. The late President Millard Fillmore acted as the first chancellor for twenty-
eight years, during which time he served one term as President of the United States.
The University of Buffalo School of Dentistry was started about T886 on its present site
at 25 Goodrich Street and finally the Niagara University Medical School founded in T883
was merged with the University of Buffalo in June l898.
In those early days, clinical teaching was provided for by the Sisters of Charity
Hospital, also by the General and the Erie County Hospitals where bedside teaching was
stressed in the early days.
Time passes-and with time came progress-From the days of the "new Medical
and Dental Schools" on High and Goodrich Streets respectively, when Buffalo was a city
of about thirty thousand with few, if any paved streets, little in the way of sewers and no
water supply except wells and water carts, from which water was sold, Buffalo and the
Medical and Dental sciences surged ahead. Traditions and fame flourished-Drs. Moore,
Roswell Park, Stockton, Delancey Rochester, Busch, Hartmann, Mann, and many others after
them added luster to the school. Concerning Dr. Austin Flint, upon his death in 1886,
Dr. Osler wrote:
"To die in harness was a fit conclusion for a life of ceaseless work, and of this we
may be certain, that so long as there are practitioners of medicine on this continent, the
name of Austin Flint will be held in esteem and reverence."
Today Bultalo stands as a great medical center through the progress of time-and yet
time itself managed to imbed itself into the present day Medical and Dental buildings
adding to their traditions and fame. How befitting it is that now a new chapter in this
same history book is about to begin. A new and long awaited Medical-Dental building
is already under construction on the campus of the University of Buffalo, far to surpass
the fondest hopes of those men who wrote the earlier chapters.
lt is with the sincerest gratification and sense of nostalgia that we now carry this
thought with us through this yearbook as a theme and await to have that announcement
of i894 once again repeated.
lt all began . . . and yet each beginning is but one note to further progress.

HISTORY CDF DENTISTRY
The first beginnings of dental art were undoubtedly identical to those of general
medicine, because it is quite evident that in primitive times, when the healing art was in its
rudimentary stages, no divisions could have existed in it.
This nucleus, as it could rightly be designated, as one peers retrogressively into
antiquity, grew with the passage of time and gradually absorbed into its "attraction
sphere" assimilated masses of concrete knowledge which ultimately resulted in a whale, a
mother, the science of medicine.
Even as a woman bears so did she, the science of medicine but instead of lite, she
gave the world the specialties, fields of limitation-dentistry.
This transition occurred at about the end of the middle ages, that is, the period of
existence between ancient and modern civilization. It was in this era that events of the
highest importance, such as the invention of the printing press, the capture of Constanti-
nople by the Turks, with the consequent emigration ot many Greek men of letters and
science, who took up their residence in the West and especially in ltaly, and lastly, the
discovery ot America, marked the beginning of a new era, and are the most essential
factors in bringing about the revival ot art and science.
ln the midst ot this transition which was characterized by a vigorous intellectual lite,
dentistry, like many other branches ot science, made notable progress. lt was in the
sixteenth century, and to be more precise, about the year l544, that the first monograph,
in which dental ailments were discussed independently of general medicine and surgery. The
book alluded to is that of Walter H. Ryft and is particularly noteworthy because it was
written in the vernacular lGerman instead ot the customary Latinl.
The first signs ot separation ot dentistry from general medicine were, therefore, per-
ceived in the sixteenth century and from that time this separation tended to accentuate
itself ever more strongly and dentistry progressed even more rapidly, both in scientific and
Although, there have been, even from the most remote times, individuals who have
devoted themselves exclusively to the cure of dental maladies, or to repairing the losses of
the dental system by artitical means, and notwithstanding the progress gradually accom-
plished in this branch of medical art, which progress was especially remarkable during the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is not to be denied that, up to the beginning of the
eighteenth century, dentistry was in great part, considered one with medicine and surgery in
general. lt is but natural that dental art land the same may be said of every special branch
ot medicinel could not assume a real individuality until it had attained a higher grade of
development. As a matter of tact, dentistry, toward the end ot the seventeenth century,
was already a true specialty, although it counted but tew worthy representatives at that
tirne. The ultimate separation between dentistry, medicine and surgery, although it may
have been retarded, could not tail to take place. However, in our time, we appreciate a
closer bond between the related sciences of medicine and dentistry.

Q ' if A long time ago we met, gen-
- ' ' . V tlemen, and on that memorable
occasion in September T947, old
friends, acquaintances and pure
strangers assembled to form a
family, conceived in one ideal
and bound as a living unit for an
undivorced four years. Waiting
outside the portal of 25 Good-
rich, looks of wonderment and
awe grasped us for at least a
moment or two as we reflected
to realize that the last and most important step toward that coveted degree
was at hand. lt all seemed strange that we, out of the multitudes called, were
chosen. l could have been someone else and you, too, for that matter, but it
was soon made known to us that "we" were the cream of the crop. We had
heard this rhyme before, so we took it in our stride and before we knew it
the big conquest had begun.
The dental building appeared at a distance from the arena where we
practiced the "black art" and an occasional glance down across the alleyway
gave us new hopes for the future, as time plunged on and we, in quadruplet
groups, plowed through the notes, while our fifth and ever silent partner under-
went the knife. Tempers raged at times and were quieted, gales of laughter
surged and gave way to serious thought. Some humorous incidents come to
mind about "Old lron Nerve"
Gehrman, whose ambition it
was to greet O. P. with a firm
handshake supplied by his ca-
daver's gangrenous right arm
held concealed, in part, in his
coat sleeve. He fulfilled his L ,, T' f
ambition and still remains with 5 t
us. But, on the other hand, :1 y I l'

To run his morphine experimenfs on
man's best friend. Hurrying down the four flights to the kennels before the
rest of the class, he soon returned to his partner with a contented smile on his
face leading a bashful hound and a pack of discontented fleas. Had he read
the effects of morphine on dogs he could have avoided a lot of trouble, for
not long after the hypo of morphine was given he and his partners had their
reaction. That pup must have had a stomach the size of a revival tent and an
intestine the length of Main street. Flynn and Brooks couldn't shovel fast enough
and had to call up reserves. That brings to mind the story of the street cleaner
and his broom which White has the answer for.
By January T949, we had made our formal entrance into the dental college.
The gruelling months of study in the basic medical sciences were behind us
and like an eye for an eye-a tooth for a tooth, new worries and responsi-
bilities fell upon us. The Chase National Bank, which DiLaura owns, floated a
loan which maintained the dental supply houses
and allowed us to continue on. Joe Gauchat was
president of our iunior year. A Republican at that,
too!! Joe was later instrumental in putting a close
acquaintance of his into the office of Dean. The
Dental college was familiar ground to some of 'Z
those amongst us. Ray Cleveland claimed blood tv"
relationship to the crown and bridge department, I., ix
easy going Ed Farmer laid claim to a portion of the fl -
prosthetic end of the profession, a few corpuscles
linked Nachbar to the afternoon session in the
surgery clinic, Gugino felt at home during the
manual dexterity course in dental anatomy, but Lay had everyone licked-he
could use the phone on the prosthetic floor for personal calls.
Extra-curricular activities became quite popular and possible at this stage
and consequently the fraternities flourished. Rathke, DiLaura and Haar were
the politicos of the Zips as well as other functions. Cleveland, Barber, Shepson
8t Schoenleber took over the reins of Delta Sigma Delta. Tresser, Lieberman,
Zitrin 8g Redstone manned the guns for Alpha Omega. Three fraternal organi-
zations for a small institution seemed quite futile, to say the least, but they all
managed to stay above board and furnish a quarter or half of "foam" now
and then. The occasional party was always well attended and usually afforded
a good deal of entertainment. Casper Ferraro amazed everyone with the
notes he could strum out of his home-made, single-stringed bass violin. Accom-
panied by one of several masters of the keyboard, the rhythm bounced. Joe
Quinlivan, noted for Gaelic wit, oft'times sang a solo in praise of the Emerald
lsle. Any and all floor shows highlighted the star performer from Coney Island--
the one and only representative from Greece in the school, Peter lHi
c Slowly we progressed
through the basic dental
sciences and techniques. Some-
thing to remember during this
phase is the demonstration

third law explains why the professor's
upper denture escaped its confinement
and landed three laboratory tables away.
Silsbee sought to retrieve it but found
greater pleasure as he peered across the
way at a window of the High Street
apartments. He tried to keep his find quiet
but couldn't and all of a sudden the bac-
teriology laboratory tilted to starboard as
the class surged for the rear windows.
The professor pushed his way to a front
row position but was too late for the nude
form had disappeared. The class was
dismissed to recover from wounds received in the scramble.
Filling teeth in an artificial sort of way and the handling and burning up of
precious metals came easy but the most tedious of all our tasks was to take the
"rocking action" out of our technique dentures. It was quite a shock to submit
for a final grade, a set of dentures that we thought were the best ever made
and have them take on an awkward form as the judges placed them in the
manikins. There were good bites, bad bites, side bites, over bites, under bites,
cross bites, open bites, closed bites, bedbug bites and mosquito bites, but in
the final analysis we did fairly well.
It was in the latter part of the sophomore year that the operative clinic was
made available to us. The south end that is! For a time destruction reigned,
but wounds soon healed and old friendships were regained. Baxter, Weber 8g
Brown had trouble finding a chair that would elevate high enough, whereas
Betts, Neri and Ganon were occasionally seen wearing their high-heeled
son 8i Haar,
they had five

A summer of
rest freshened our spirits and enlivened our hopes
for the third year, which was soon upon us. A
new face appeared in our midst as we returned
to the grind-Dick Tetter had a new chin-and
plenty slick. We were lost for awhile as we took
over the duties of the school because a senior
class was no longer with us. lt was like sending a
boy after a man's iob, but in this case the boys
could handle it. Or, as Joe Amico would say,
"he's not only good-looking--he's handsome." Days grew into weeks and
weeks into months and before we knew it another year had folded beneath us.
The things that we will remember from our third session are: Growth and
development is the etiology of orthodontia, partial denture is no snap or
"Nil illegitimes carborundum".
Anderson gave his clinical instructor a prophylaxis and the 38th parallel
still exists in the operative infirmary. Stanford handled the latter situation
nicely by always selecting the chair on the boundary line, thereby having
access to instructors from the north and the south.
As seniors we, Davis, too, suddenly appreciated the fact that time flies.
Nevertheless, in the confusion that existed McKnight could find a moment or
two to reminisce of his experiences as a gunner in the Eighth Air Force. Triolo
having tired of single bliss, took a bride. Baxter worked harder than ever for
his "A" in surgery. Colarusso having settled down to a life of marriage, was
forced to stay close to home while Salvatori preferred to concentrate his efforts
on trading automobiles. John LaRose was elected to the office of class presi-
dent and did an excellent job. On the clinic side of the picture, Hayes con-
tinued to vie with the czar of the north end concerning a bridge started in the
iunior year. Pliny, the elder Groman, took
his turn in the diagnosis department and
was surprised by the patient's quizzical 'y
look when asked whether or not he
breathed at night. Gaughan continued to
make the rounds from the Town Casino
to Children's Hospital and vice versa, but
Carstensen carried out his duties well and
received innumerable gifts from his
Our final year was marked with a
serious accident involving Herb Bohnet.
Weeks of hospitalization because of two
broken legs forced him to drop back to
the class of '52. His loss was felt by all
Soon The ultimate question of, where do
we go from here, confronted us. A few
decided in favor of internships, others
were attracted by the service, such as
Ensign H. P. Shaddock. While the re-
mainder were faced with The problems
of what equipment to buy, how much of
it and where to have it delivered.
The goal is now in view, gentlemen, and shortly we ofthe class of '51 will
select our road of life. Every moment of our association has been pleasant
and will linger on-not soon to be forgotten. There were, of course, trying and
tedious times for one and all, but you will agree they were insignificant com-
pared tothe benefits achieved. A bill of gratitude we owe the men who guided
us down through the years. Theirs was no easy task and gratitude seems
insufficient to repay their efforts, but they have the satisfaction of knowing
that the class of 'Sl appreciates the many things they have done. Farewell,
now, and God be with you on the road ahead.

HISTGRY OF MEDICINE
An analysis of modern medicine at the mid-twentieth century is most difficult for one
as close to its heart as a medical student. Those of us being trained in the practice are
familiar with the forces immediately acting upon us, but perhaps not enough with other
influences in the dynamics of modern medicine.
ln the transition from older traditions to our modern practice . . . in fact throughout
medicine, it seems . . . the interplay of Science and the Art of medicine has had its effects
on us. The growth and development of Science and its child Technology, and their influence
on our careers, is evident at a glance.
The Science has always been the Progress in medicine . . . yet we write and discuss
as always of the Art. It is the development of the Art that should interest us the more, for
it is the most constant and least-altered of the two. What has happened to the Art these
N.- , . , ,,,,, Y

past few thousand years? Where do we find its influence on the young physician of 1951,
and what are its prospects in the rapidly-changing world?
The great men in medicine through history have been great artists. They combined
things in their hands of especial skill to effect a definite purpose . . . the improvement of
their patients. Included among the "things" combined was unquestionably a sensitivity to
people . . . an awareness of what organic disease means to the patient. Their sensitivity
has persisted, and is thought of today as a prerequisite to admission to the study of
medicine. Our difficulties of selection are in part the result of inadequate assessment of
With steady progression toward an individual-centerecl culture in America, we find a
paradox in medicine: we are trelaly effective through Science . . . the microbes fall right
and left . . . and we are left with the patients whose restoration to health lies in that
intangible area of the Art, the person-to-person relationship. Great progress has been
made in this area, but much greater progress will bc made. Reactive causes of disease now
face the frontiers of medicine.
We do not deny the contributions of research in the allied and basic sciences. Their
future is assured, their tasks outlined anew by each discovery, and their recruitment of
minds and materials is the American backbone. The future of the Art of medicine is less
certain. Its teaching is short, and its practice deficient with such a dazzling contemporary
as Science. It is also threatened by major alterations in our social structure which by their
nature would preclude its practice. Nevertheless, individuals within and without medicine
are stimulating the profession with their development and utilization of knowledge and
techniques of inter-personal relationships. These people, together with the wise physician,
are the present-day pioneers in the Art of medicine.
The responsibilities of the physician are increasing as the power of medicine over
human minds and bodies increases. Medical practice thus demands insight, personality and
understanding. Let us study the phases of the Art of medicine in our new schools, for there
lie new means for the promotion of health, the prevention of illness, the restoration of
health, and the rehabilitation of the patient in the medicine of the future.
THE MEDICAL CLASS OF 1951
An erudite group of individuals such as the Class of '51 might be mis-
takenly ranked together as possessing similar or common characteristics . . .
"if you know one, you know them all." Not sol Mark forthwith, then, the
versatility of its members, their potentialities, their virtues, their frailties, their
achievements and foibles. We must include the last, for far be it from us to
have it misconstrued that we were a group without faults. Before we elaborate
on the various themes aforementioned, let us first have some sentimental music.
The graduating class is in many respects unusual. We entered the study of
medicine at a time when the world was at relative peace. Everything seemed
a simple matter then. Yes, indeed ...simply a matter of getting through
Medical School, simply having enough money to finance it, and simply plan-
ning our futures. Things have become even more simple since then . . . you
simply have to make the choice of either going into the Army now or staying
out, and soon there will not even be a choice. At this point we are the center
of attention . . . we are being appraised . . . and as members of the medical
profession are closely observed by all. The new school is being erected on
campus and will soon graduate bigger and better classes. Anyway, we were
among the last to carve our names on what was left of the seats in Alumni Hall.
There are sixty-four assets to our class. lf we were to enumerate them other
than alphabetically, someone would certainly be misplaced. "Wild Bill" Austin,
enthusiast, is all excited about donning the bell-bottomed trousers again.

Taylor Bailey may be the oustanding
phenomenon of this year's class, fin-
ishing four years of medical school
in an absolute two years, particu-
larly accelerating in Dermatology.
Ted Barratt's, Gerry Schultz's and
Jim Lo Verde's distinctive qualities
are a natural immunity which pro-
tects them from a ravaging disease,
vilification. Tony Barone's major fine
point has been well balanced by
that of his cousin Don. Don's con-
sideration for Tony, which he might
sum up as "it was easier to do it
myself" allowed the latter to make
up his sack-time deficit. Navigator
Bash steered safely through medical
school, and is now apparently
headed for a career in dermatology. As we said early in this work, there are
those who have faults, and such is "Siegfried" Batcheller, who will forsake
Wagner as he studies French from Hildegarde. If we had 63 other Boardmen
like Jay Belsky we could start our own National Boards and ask the questioners
the questions. Joe Bleichfield, a later addition to our motley crew, had an
asset that looked much like a rubber cushion, but for which he will find little
use scrubbing with Dr. Kenwell.
SQ it .
V2 "' Frantically Bolgan loves to collect-
El l 'A he IS the class phllatographer lphllatel-
X ist who collects picturesl and has the
. If largest collection of infant pictures in
the class. "Eagerly" Bruno has ridden
through his four years, trampling un-
derfoot any who got in his way, if he got there that morning. "Westerly"
Robert Burke, after exhaustive research, has come up with Burke's Triad: Con-
vertible, Clothes, and California sunshine. "Consistent" best describes Carl
Conrad, who had a perfect record of never being punctual provided he even
came to the right place. Cordova's humor must have been weathered and
dried in his native New Mexico, leaving it as sharp as the cactus there. New
man in the class, Bill Cunningham will contribute to the study of carcinoma of
the lung when a study of his patients is made, attempting to correlate increase
in incidence with amount of smoke inhaled from the doctor's pipe. Droll Harvey
Davis-we hope he may someday get control of TONICS AND SEDATIVES
and eliminate the sedatives. Robert Davis is prepared for lean times, he can
also do duty as a smithy, having picked up that trade in his spare time at the
Blacksmith Shop. You have heard the statement that most people know more
about their cars than they do about their bodies, and from garage mechanics
as regards doctors, vice versa. Not Arnold Duszynski-he knows plenty
about his car and radio.
Eli Engel's ability is yet to be tried. We will be much
better able to judge it after we see if the Navy
speeds him up a knot or two, or if he slows down
the Navy. James Ferguson, newest convert to 'ii
Americanism, remains yet a foremost exponent of
the Empire. The sun will never set on his family.
Natrium Glassman, recently returned from a tour
of the electron orbits of Na 23, thinks the carotid
sinus is the seat of the soul-another osmoreceptor.
With diabetes mellitus, thyrotoxicosis, and intestinal
parasites, Allen Goldfarb has placed himself as the
fourth entity in the differential diagnosis of increased
appetite with no gain in weight. Myron Greengold,
class anarchist l, 2, 3, 4, is self-appointed staunch
defender of the GP and adversary of the surgeon.
Barbara Groben, top girl in the class, has tenacity as
her attribute-a sole survivor of the femininity of the
class of '51, Howard l
of the teaching ques-
tion and slight-of-
hand artist, still has
Dr. Jordan puzzled
about the Dermatol-
ogy book he swal-
lowed. Though few,
as you see, we do
have our failures.
One of these is Mark
in driving Howard
Grossman into a
psychotic state. Of the more rare properties in this section of humanity is the
daring diplomacy of Bertram Halfaer. Marvin Kaplan, advocate of the good
life, has contributed his confirmatory results on the propagation of duodenal
ulcer by repeated administration of coffee and use of cigarettes. Harry
Krueger, self-supporting student, worked his way through school learning
what becomes of therapeutic failures.
Perseverance abounds in our class, but Tiger Danzig has such that he will
without a doubt attain his goal-THE ANSWER. The ability to see things
through together, and equilibrium, are fine traits. Our example of these is
thai' combo that has the balance of a well-worn fly wheel, "Whirl-away" Ploss
and "While-away" Koukal. Perspective and doggedness, excellent character-
istics are displayed by Jonathan Leopold. Those who know him will heartily
testify to his persevering ability to pursue an elusive point. Strength of character
is truly a noble property, and fortunate is Eugene Leslie in having such strength
as was needed to carry three incumbents through gross anatomy. Now Art
Michalek has the outstanding quality of
having a capacity, the same increases
in direct proportion to the number of
hours since mealtime. Luis Munoz' gul-
libility has made life entertaining for
"Practical" Martin, i. e. practical ioker.
Mimicry among animals is a protective
mechanism, but the Musser and Murphy
imitations have the additional quality
of malice aforethought. Ed Penn's
summer experience statistically with
infant mortality enabled him to put a
deadly bite into his experience account.
John Perry has the golden touch, the
kind of fellow who can fall into a privy
and come up with a diamond-studded
internship. Dan Phillips: versatile medi-
cal student from 8:00 to 3:00, mother
from 3:00 to Tl:00, and sleeping
beauty the rest of the time. Don Pinkel
acquired an assistant residency and began his career soon after with the
advent of a baby daughter. Discerning is the word for Marve Pleskow, no one
will ever sell him anything he doesn't want to buy. Melvin Reinhard features a
high R.P.M. with a heavy governor, or perhaps he uses low octane fuel. Milton
Robinson is the man with the iingling shoes. The only licit medical student in
the whole class is Thomas Rodenberg. Hubert J. Rubenstein has the uncanny
ability to say the wrong thing at the right time, i. e. per se.
This can be said of Robert Secrist, he has borne the world upon his shoulders.
Ed Shanbrom is coiner par excellance of mutilated mottoes, e. g., "if you yell
loud enough and long enough, right or wrong, somebody else will finally do
it for you." Robert Shapiro's analytic mind compelled him to admit ego satis-
faction was the raison d'etre of his MD plates. Will Shaw is in on the ground
floor-janitor at the alcoholic clinic. Joseph Sieracki remains ambitious in his
desire to get Al Volkmann under the electron microscope. The only student
that learned his hemotology at the l9th hole with the Assistant Dean is Adolph
Smith. Bernard Smolens-vir-
tuoso, non troppo on the
stethoscope. Eugene Teich will
be remembered as a vocalist
and for his activity in renal re-
search. We are quoting that
gay philosopher, Verdccchia:
"We have created a Franken-
stein." James Weigel's great
gift is that he can present a
case on the grounds of most
pretense. Lester Wolcott is our
home owner, cheerful tax-
payer, new fofher and future pcriner
of Heerdf. Ed Zehler will be remem-
bered os CI member of The Olympic
diod of Smith ond Zehler, The deccxih-
lon champions of 1951. As for anchor
mon, Don Zimmerman-"Georgey,

A lesson in Anatomy in the fourteenth century
Even in populous districts, the practice of medicine is a lonely
road which winds uphill all the way, and a man may easily go
astray and never reach the Delectable Mountains, unless he early
finds those shepherd guides of whom Bunyan tells, Knowledge,
Experience, Watchlul, and Sincere."

Thoughts of summer quickly vanished when we returned to school in the tall of '50,
Small groups gathered in our "white-tiled lounge", hashing over summer doin's before our
first class began.
Our Junior Year was a long awaited one-when we finally would be assigned to
infirmary. How proud we were when we had our first two point prophy checked out.
This was a year well to rememberg Dr. Fiero's Hour of Charm, the euphoric look on
HotTman's face when polishing gold, Vince and Webbe still battling for top honors in who
could ask the most questions during lecture. We remember Robbie's demonstration in
Orthodontics when he adroitly soldered his tweezers to his molar bandp and the stricken
look on Burt's face when his maxillary denture became halves. We remember our theme
song in full denture, "Rock-a-bye Baseplates", and our terrific parties and dances.
Do you remember Smilin Murph "Kloober" trying to sell everyone a "terrific" used car:
and three of the boys who unwillingly had their names changed to Flavo, Loducio, and
We remember our lunch hour bridge games played with wilted dog-eared cards,
Emma so cheerfully provided, and Easterbrook and Frachella, two of the most liked guys
We remember the warm greeting our new Dean had for the boys when he saw them,
and Dr. Powell's most able advice and assistance.

Down broke over the fall sky as the Meyer and the General battalions of clinical
recruits were called to reveille. This was it-a full year of clinical maneuvers on two fronts,
broken up by a marathon six week bivouac at the Children's Hospital.
The task forces immediately went to work-the Abo-Loeser battalion invading the
urine and CBC laboratories of Grider Street, closely backed by the Maurizi-Zuazaga
reservists on High Street who promptly invaded that well-known induction center, the library-
later to be made famous by that noble platoon, headed by Don Sprecker which maintained
possession of all the lounging chairs and retaliated all counter-attacks from decorticate
librarians with music boxes. At the Meyer, however, a losing battle was fought as an
embargo was placed on all medical students. Among the many losses there we will always
remember Corky McLeod screaming, as he was slowly being strangled: "There it is-it's
been on the shelf all the time!"
As the battle progressed, observation posts were set up. Vic lGoldiel Panaro received
the distinguished clerk's cross for his able description of operations as he managed to get
close enough to the operating table to use his binoculars. His feats were closed matched,
however, by Bob Shea who managed, only at gun point, the unheard of feat of threading
a surgical needle for the assistant scrub nurse during a skin biopsy. Mechanized maneuvers
continued under the leadership of General Milch, as roller skates were donned in order to
keep up with the advancing front during ward rounds. Zim Zeller and Bill Zuazaga, how-
ever, were soon lost behind and had to resort to a relay system in order to maintain
contact. 7 t , ,
Between lulls in the fighting came voluminous case histories. At the Meyer, quadrupli-
cates were made, one copy being presented to the head nurse who corrected it and made
out the grades. Colonel Levitt held reveille each morning at 7:30. lt did not take long,
however, to realize that ward rounds were "watering the vegetables", that the therapeutic
approach to an 80-year-old patient was "to congratulate him and leave him alone", and
that the most common complication in patients at this hospital was "adhesions to the
mattress". However, the highlight of activities came when Levitt presented Frank Fote with
the bronze tongue blade for being present at morning rounds twice in succession.
Attendings at the Meyer front were rare birds and it was here that Al Connette
remarked that he wasn't sure but that he may have seen a few flying over Lockport. Neil
Fuhr and Al Gartner, however, being more intrepid souls were sent on reconnaissance to
find one in order to present their cases. At this writing they are still missing in action.
Nevertheless, much was still to be learned and research flourished. Joe Genewich admitted
that in his series of 50,000 routine urine exams ltaken at randoml he had tabulated l29
types of urine crystals, Gene Loeser decided to market commercially the free HCL in Wayne
Greenberg's stomach, Jack Banas decided upon a residency in chess playing after being

beaten twice consecutively by Baumler, and Al Brown discovered a new treatment for
Not to be outdone by the above mentioned astute group, Burt Stulberg took time off
his diet to re-organize the General battalion after they had suffered various setbacks.
Burt rapidly fell by the wayside, however, as his caloric intake finally won out and Gerry
Somich manned the helm-100 lbs. of dynamite as any attending will testify. Ollie Steiner
became the best interne the General had in years even tho' Omar the tent-maker had to
make his uniforms. lt took Ollie almost a month to convince "Gordie" Schmitt that "my
patient is falling apart" is not an accepted clinical diagnosis. Chip Simpson remained the
only man who could sleep through a lecture and still ask questions about it later and
Phoebe Saturen reported in one of the conferences that there is a case reported in the
literature of thymoma in guinea pigs over 80.
General inspection followed at which time fingernails were inspected and pens were
examined to see if the correct shade of green ink was being used. Daily rounds in medicine
were preceded by the recitation of LincoIn's Gettysburg address to that well-known attend-
ing, Byron Sheesley, however, flunked the course given by this same attending because
he could not remember the cover colors of the textbooks he had read. To this day Byron
still insists that he is color blind.
Then, iust as things began to cool down again, orders came to report to the Children's
Hospital lor make mine a bottle of V2 N. saline pleasel. Here General Rubin informed us
that there were many accepted pediatric field manuals but recommended that we read the
American ones first. The battle became hot and furious as "Salmonella" Neter began his
verbal barrages. "Let me stop you here, doctor, but don't tell me you are actually paying
to go to Medical School?" Work was piled on night after night and amidst the meconium
and wails, we found little time to do anything else. Gamble became the pass word and
we were even asked to know how many mastoid air cells there were in a two-week-old
infant weighing 2800 grams and having a positive Chvostek.
Woe befell Ted Drapanas when after joining Will Schwartz one bright spring after-
noon at a nearby pub was suddenly informed by a resident, upon returning, that a quiz
was to be held concerning each student's patients. Will, when asked what the CO2 in
respiratory acidosis was replied "86 proof" later to be verified by a resounding "hic"
from the former. Nor will we forget Bruce Connell singing "Here comes Peter Cottontail"
to the kids, Bernie Davis informing a parent at the Well-Baby Clinic that it's alright to start
a two-month baby on macaroni as long as it's done slowly, or Jeff Underwood feeling so
sympathetic for the little tots that he joined them with chickenpox.
Everything was not all work and no play, however, as the scene shifted to Gowanda
and psychiatry. Gene Sigman packed his golf clubs and camera and Robbins became quite
adept at climbing drainpipes. Notice should also be made, however, of Frank Wharton
and Bob Wilson who decided to make a little extra money as ianitors-or so they told the

months leave to prepare for that final and glorious push remaining ahead next year as

So far, we have been a pretty conscientious bunch, eager almost to a fault if being
eager can be considered a fault. Perhaps all of us realize, to a greater or lesser degree,
the really tremendous opportunity and privilege, which we have been given, of preparing
ourselves for a profession which offers something so vary rare. This some thing is the
chance to perform an essential service for others in a manner which, in large measure, is
limited only by our individual consciences and skills. May we never take this privilege for
granted nor ever let it slip too far into the subconscious either in our remaining years in
school or in the succeding years when we will have been prepared to assume the responsi-
bilities of our profession.

Aha-Sophomores at last-no more tremulous moments accompanied by the puffs of
an O. P. Jones' Havanag no more mind reading in Dr. GriFfith's Physiology lectures.
But wait! What's this?-polished shoulders-define lung abscess-define gangrene-
define Ioronchiectasis-all before we even got to class. What a horrible way to be
shocked into reality.
So our sophomore year was launched amid these minor explosions. The first few weeks
saw more "deals" collapse and consummate than the New York Stock Exchange
experiences in a year. Many sleepless nights were caused by the oft failing, intricate
communication set up for autopsy calls. In the opinion of many, the long awaited oppor-
tunity to examine a "real" patient in physical diagnosis made it all worth while. We still
aren't quite sure who trembled the most, the well equipped lwith tools anywayl sophomores,
or the unfortunate patients.
A few of the occurrences and experiences ot the past year should help to make us
all remember l95O-l95l as an eventful and interesting year. Molly "blood shot" Seidenberg
gave all tor science. Sanford Meyer's irresistible charm captivated Muriel at the dance-
Doctors baffled by Clancy's Syndrome. Frank Oliver's coffee machine lwe think he gets a
cutl would come in mighty handy for Sam Galeota when he stands up all night waiting
tor his little sister. Did Joe David make a habit ot mapping up floors with instructors coats?

really waltz with Dick Nagel at the class party? Even Dorothy Dix couldn't explain why

Dirty "D" never had a date at parties, but we knew-What every pathology student
needed-an interpretor for those who couldn't understand German and a wire recorder
for those who couldn't take shorthand. Dictum of the Bacteriology Department-One
sophomore is no student and always use an adult rabbit!-lt's been said that Jack Gold
now swallows stomach tubes for breakfast every morning. Rumor has it that Herb
Constantine did have a date in l95O. Don Ehrenreich has confided in some of his close
friends that he brought that "rain hat" from the "continent". And then there were those
rendezvous between Don Rachow and that tall brunette technician. Dr. Terplan would now
like to say just a few words . . .
As we close the book on "Sophomore Year 1950-l95l", a few chapters are yet to be
inserted. Even though everyone suffers from board fever now, we are all eagerly looking
forward to being together again as Juniors in the hospitals next year.

It was dark and quiet as I sat mournfully in the crowded little room with my friends
and waited silently for the fateful hour to approach. After an interminable wait, there
came a clanging of keys, a shuffling of feet, and the pungent odor of a three-quarters
burned cigar. The boss had arrived. My brethren and I perked up for we knew that our
working days would soon begin again. There was the sound of scattering papers and I
felt myself being lifted bodily from my cosy nook and being deposited into the arms of a
somewhat bewildered and frightened young man. I, microscope No. 29837, was thus
introduced to my guardian of the Dental Class of '54.
The change from peace and quiet to work was an abrupt one. Mirrors flashed and
screws turned as the disgruntled freshmen sweated and strained in their attempts to identify
structures which to me were perfectly clear and transparent. Then came the arduous task
of drawings. As my new owner completed what he considered an excellent work, a
booming voice roared out. "Are you going to actually submit that montrosity? Why, that's
the worst thing I've seen in twenty years". A few deft strokes of the pencil by the man
with the long cigarette holder and the finished product bore no resemblance whatsoever
to anything I had ever seen. "There," he said, "it's as simple as that-stippling is all wrist
Every Saturday morning, moist and trembling fingers feverishly yanked me from my
over-night resting place. The weekly game of "practical" had begun. At a command from
Dr. Humphrey, the bedraggled freshmen proceeded to search for structures whose descrip-
tions were relegated to the fine print of Maximow and Bloom.
One day, there seemed to bea bit more confusion than normal as the boys staggered
into the lab. Their faces were a mixture of deiection and resignation, and as they disinter-
estedly went about their work, they muttered continuously about the Duct of Wirsung that
dangled and the appendix that looked like a ureter. From all this, I deduced that the
graying, lean, and lanky Head of the Anatomy department had perpetuated his quarterly
crime against the innocent freshmen. He, too, dabbled in the game of "practicaI".
As the days of finals approached, my journeys along the streets of Buffalo became
more frequent. I spent many long, weary hours with my guardian on those nights and I
wish that I could have consumed Benzedrine, too, to keep my eyes open.
Exams came and went and we started the second phase of the freshman year. Again,
I was to have an important part in the scheme of things as the boys began to delve into
the intricacies of the brain and spinal cord. The mutterings were iust as frequent, the
practicals iust as difficult-the only consolation being the ten days at rest while the class
enioyed the frivolities of civilian life during the Christmas recess. The embryonic dentists

returned with a new vigor and the Drs. Jones and Rasmussen responded with a heightened
intensity of work. About this time, a strange, new element was introduced into the conver-
sation that passed over me. I repeatedly heard the words "Zips", "Delts", and "Ads",
being sprinkled throughout the chatter. The novitiates' talk centered on parties, dances,
stags-all very strange-and they seemed to have time for other things than Level 4 and
the post-central gyrus. Soon, the social whirl came to an end as the middle of February
arrived. The words Zips and Delts were replaced with such unintelligible things as the
reflex path to the cerebellum and some nonsense about never lowering-and two zebras.
My year's work came to an end and exams again became a thing of the past. I
haven't seen hide nor hair of my boy since. The scuttlebutt is that the class is endeavoring
by any means, fair or foul, to shift the scene of operations to that beautiful, new building
to be erected on the Campus. They are down in the Biochemistry department, fiddling with
osazones to cover their experiments to develop a new explosive. They are also taking a
course called physiology or "Who killed the Cat?" l've heard that most of the class are
becoming expert "drum smokers"-must be a thirty-day test for nicotine or something
that they're running.
l have been retired to my abode for some time but l look back on my days with the
Class of '54 as the most arduous but pleasant ones of my life.

At last, we had arrived-or so we thought. We were sitting in the same seats genera-
tions of doctors had occupied before us, on the first day at medical school. Dr. Kimball
and Dr. Aaron, in delivering inspiring words of welcome, faced some seventy odd, bright,
inquisitive faces, which reflected pride and pleasure at being among "the chosen ones", as
well as some anxiety over entrance into a new field of endeavor. We felt, then, a very
close kinship and community of interest with OUR PROFESSION.
We, who were to become the bleary-eyed "sponges" whose idea of "heaven"
temporarily would be synonymous with "sleep" and "sophomore status", were perched on
top of the world that day. How could we have known that the days to follow were to
drag us into the abyss of Tuesday and Saturday recitations, osteology assignments,
prolonged soiourns in the microscopic world of histological preparations, weekly practicals
and ascending and descending nervous pathways. How many of us would have believed
that a "boneyard" in broad daylight could frighten us, until we were to face it on an

With the closing of the school year 1951, the Medentian has attained its 19th anni-
versary. From the first four page mimeographed paper in 1932, to the present Yearbook
has been a long and arduous climb but the purposes as expounded in that first publication
have remained as the editorial policies of the present magazine. Now, both as a monthly
and yearly publication, the Medentian has attained international status and is recognized
throughout the world, not only by its very plan of organization in which it has helped to
bring scholastic and fraternal interests of medical and dental students into a closer
relationship, but also in its uniqueness in that it is the only combined Medical and Dental
Students' publication in the country.
We, the Staff of 1951, take pride in presenting to you this publication, hoping that
this book will aid you in recalling experiences and anecdotes of your student life. We
know we have not more than partly succeeded, but we think we have not altogether failed
in presenting you with this record of priceless memories which in many years to come may
seem to you as alive as they do to us, the staff, now.
To everyone who has in any manner contributed to the success of this book we can
only express our heartfelt gratitude.

During the year T950-l95l, the staff of the Medentian has endeavored not only to
present to the student body its Monthly and Yearbook publications, but, also to promote
other activities which would be of interest.
Early in the school year, in conjunction with the Student Council, we introduced the
Student Directory, which was so overwhelmingly accepted that it will remain a yearly
In the late fall, we sponsored along with the fraternities the inter-fraternity dance,
which turned out to be a very successful affair. The Pre-Christmas dance, at the Lamm Post
also was overwhelmingly successful and in the following pages we have presented memor-
able instances of the dance. We hope that this spring we can promote further successful
To this end, along with the publishing of the Monthly and Yearbook, the financing ot
such activities resolved itself into a great task. Success in this respect goes to the entire
staff and the patron list.

This has been the twenty-sixth year of activity ot the Epsilon ot New York Chapter of
Alpha Omega Alpha, national honorary medical society. The qualifications for membership
to the society are based upon scholarship, but the conception has arisen that election to
this society is not only a recognition ot accomplishment as a student, but also an insignia
of both promise and expectancy of leadership in some phase of medicine after graduation.
ln addition to holding regular monthly meetings at which the new members presented
papers on topics ot current scientific interest, the society again this year sponsored a com-
bined meeting with the Bultalo Academy of Medicine. We were honored in being able to
present as the guest speaker Dr. Rene J. Dubos, ot Rockefeller Institute tor Medical Research.
Dr. Dubos has become widely known and acclaimed in recent years tor his diligent research,
particularly in the field of tuberculosis. The meeting was preceded by a banquet in honor
of Dr. Dubos. Both the banquet and the meeting were very successful, and thoroughly
enioyed by all who attended.

The James A. Gibson Society was founded by the classes of 1919 and 1920 in honor
of Dr. Gibson, late Professor of Anotomy. The purpose of the Society is to promote high
scholarship and to stimulate interest in scientific investigation among meclical students.
Membership is determined by scholastic achievement in the anatomic subiects.
The program of the Society this year included lectures by members of the medical
faculty and students. Dr. Grosvenor W. Bissel spoke on "Pituitary Diseases", Dr. Samuel
Sanes presented the history of medical students' contributions to the science of anatomy,
and Dr. George E. Miller spoke on "The Pathogenesis of Edema". Mr. Adolf Smith of the
senior class and Mr. Theodore Drapanas, of the iunior class, presented papers on "Anti-
Anemic Factor", and "Hypertension", respectively. The first paper was discussed by Dr.
O. P. Jones and the latter by Dr. John Boylan.
The Society extends its appreciation to Dr. O. P. Jones for his enthusiastic interest and
guidance throughout the year.

Although medical school is generally and justly regarded as a full time job, even the
most diligent student finds occasional time for relaxation. Ever since the organization of
Omega Upsilon Phi was founded in 1899, later to become one of the 57 active chapters ot
Phi Chi Medical Fraternity, it has been the purpose of the fraternity to provide a much
needed supplement to the medical education at the University of Buffalo. This has taken
the form of parties, bi-monthly meetings, lectures, and even formal dances.
From the time the first freshman stuck his head in the door at this faIl's first rush party
to be greeted with Leo's hearty, "No, that porch isn't sinking, the house is rising", until the
last dazed sophomore limped in tor a post-boards bacchanal, the parties have been a
regular feature at 228 Elmwood.
The big event of the winter was the Christmas Dance, with a buffet dinner at midnight.
The initiation banquet at the Blacksmith Shop was another outstanding occasion. Gave us a
chance to meet some of our outstanding alumni from this area and realize that they, too,
were once mere students. The climax of the year was the Senior Formal, held at the
On the more serious side there were the study sessions at the house-"He's asked that
every year since l905", the business meetings, and the occasional speakers.
That our activities haven't been entirely social is evidenced by the fact that six sopho-
more Phi Chi's were elected to Gibson Society this year.
We feel that this has been a successful year. 23 more men decided to come our way.
Future years should be even brighter.

In I898 the good ship Xi Psi Phi sailed into Buffalo, and Mu Chapter was founded, a
part of a professional fraternity which boasts ot twenty-six chapters and over seventeen
thousand members. Now for the titty-third class of Zips at Buftalo the gangway is down,
and diplomas are the order of the day.
Nineteen titty-one was a good year for the Bultalo Zips. Under the able direction of
President Haar the educational and social programs of the fraternity were carried out with
great success. Tony Gugino, one of the most able treasurers Mu has ever known, leaves
us with a set of books that are strictly anti-communist.
The traditional pledge parties were the most outstanding feature ot the tall months,
and "22I" resounded on many Saturday nights with sounds ot good cheer.
On April seventh the annual dinner dance for the initiation of new members was held
at Transit Valley Country Club. Twenty-eight pledges became members of Xi Psi Phi,
enriching their lives and that of the fraternity with ever-lasting friendships. Don Gaffney and
Nick Murphy, the co-philemons, are to be congratulated on their fruitful efforts in behalf
of the fraternity.
The educational committee did a fine iob with the monthly clinics. The speakers this
year were interesting and educational, and the members and their guests left each clinic
with a greater appreciation for their chosen profession.
A new function was added to the fraternity social calender this year. A party for the
alumni was instituted with the purpose of promoting a closer relationship between the
student and graduate members. lt was held in March at the Fraternity House, and part
of the program was a briefing on last year's football team by Jim Peele, the Athletic
Director. He augmented his talk by showing colored movies of the team in action.
May twenty-first saw the end of Mu's social activities for the year. The occasion was
the annual fraternity picnic, with its traditional softball game. This ended the year's good
times, they are gone, but they will be remembered often in years to come.
To the graduating class of nineteen fifty-one, Mu Chapter of Xi Psi Phi wishes you
good luck and God speed.

Nu Sigma Nu was founded on March 2, l882, at the University of Michigan in Ann
Arbor, by William Mayo and five associates. The achievement of study, fellowship and
leadership in the field of medicine were its ideals.
The l.C.l Society at the University of Buffalo antedated Nu Sigma Nu by many years.
The former society, so named for its ideals of industry, concord and integrity, dates back
at least to T862 The society maintains an admirable record in that none of the brethren
ever failed to pass for graduation. The Beta Gamma or l.C.l Chapter of Nu Sigma Nu was
instituted on December 8, l905, with a charter membership of ninety-four.
Lectures at the semi-monthly meetings during the course of the year have included
those by Dean Kimball, Drs. Humphrey, Sanes, Postolot, Hubbard, Kress, Donovan, Mohn,
For the season of '50-'5'I we planned and held a most ambitious calendar. Our
Annual Freshman Smoker was held on the night of Saturday, September 25th. This was
held to acquaint the new students to each other and to the hallowed halls of Nu Sigma Nu.
Then followed the Hallowe'en party, the Christmas dance, the New Year's party, sleigh-ride
party and Valentine Dance. Don Dohn and his Social Committee are to be highly com-
mended in conducting this important part of fraternity life.
Top: S. Galeota, G. Stevens, J. Lehman, G. Burchel. Front: C. Wakai, M. Wadler, T. Spagno, H. Smith.
A banquet in honor of Dr. Alexander W. Blain of Wayne University, was held in
October at the Saturn Club. Dr. Alexander spoke at our annual lectureship held in con-
iunction with the Buffalo Academy of Medicine.
The chapter held its formal initiation ceremonies in conjunction with its annual Alumni
Banquet on April l3, l95l, at the spacious Saturn Club. Ten new men were initiated
including representatives from the freshman and sophomore classes. At the banquet Dr.
William T. Beswick acted as toastmaster while Dr. Stuart Vaughan was the principal
speaker, New officers were installed at that time by Dr. Clayton W. Greene. Donald F.
Dohn took over the reigns of president. George V. Stevens was named vice-president. The
new secretary was Howard C. Smith. Marvin Wadler succeeded to the post of treasurer.
Harry B. Richards was named historian and John B. Frankel became custodian.

One of the big highlights of the year was our annual pledge dance held at the Hotel
Sheraton on December I6.
On February 3, I95I, we held a dance at the Blacksmith Shoppe. Highlight of the
evening was a game of musical chairs. Music was supplied by Natalie Fogel ISandy's
Nataliel. The chairs were supplied by the Blacksmith Shoppe. While no one was looking,

Al and Jo Ann Goldfarb are still recuperating from that wild cocktail party that they
threw before the pledge dance. From the way Milt Robinson was walking, we think that
he caught most of the cocktails.
Ed and Eileen Penn also had a cocktail party before the Med-Dent Dance. They said
the punch only had lemonade in it. Those lemons must have been weaned on Vodka.

on April 28. We also look forward to P. L. K. Clinical Day on April l8, when the famous
Cardiologist, Dr. Charles K. Friedburg will be our guest.
Looking back over the past year, we see that some of our members have been lost
from the rank of free men, and have made the faithful step. Thus, Ed Penn, Milt Robinson,
Ted Baratt, Lenny Berman, Kurt Wegner and Burt Portin did take respectively, Eileen, Sylvia,
Barbara, Inez, Margo and Rhoda, to love, honor, cherish and obey, until working nights on
O. B. doth make them part.
Congratulations to Georgia and Jay lif you think that you're smart, just look at his

Congratulations to Carol and Bill Schwartz on the addition to their family of a
bouncing baby cocker spaniel, called Regal Ruffian, ouch! Bill owns something he calls a
car. It cost twice as much to run as Dave Hertz's.
Speaking of Secretary Dave Hertz, after members receive cards from him, they still
don't know where the next meeting will be. We hear he has a private secretary. Thanks
At the helm, guiding us through this year, has been our President, Marve Kaplan, who
has really given of his time and efforts in the affairs of P. L. K. Both he and wifey Ruth
will graduate this June. Ruth receiving her Phd. in Education.
As this year fades into the past, we look back at he ioys we had and forget our
sorrows. We see our seniors, now full fledged doctors, having traversed four tough years
land they are toughl to achieve their goal. We hope that their affiliation with P. L. K. has
served to give them a few hours of relaxation when they needed it, and friendships that
they will not easily forget. We hope that P, L. K. will continue to serve these functions of
fraternalism and brotherhood in the future.

We, the Pi Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta, have united to instill in the minds of dental
students a spirit of fraternal cooperation towards scientific, ethical and professional progress.
Delta activities got off to a snappy start in September with a stag party at Hotel
Buffalo which was well attended by present members and alumni.
A well-rounded program was initiated this year, consisting of bi-monthly meetings
preceded by bowling and followed by interesting clinics given by outstanding men of the
profession. There was enthusiastic response to a series of "gay" informal parties.
The roster of Pi Chapter was strengthened this year by a successful pledgeship and
initiation. Our new members were honored by a dance at the Hotel Statler following the
formal ceremonies in the afternoon.
Congratulations and best wishes to the class of '5l. May you always have the strength
and courage to uphold the high ideals of our University.

In its 35 years of organization Alpha chapter has created for its members, activities
of an extra curricular nature which have helped mature dental students into graduate
dentists. This year the pattern has remained the same and the graduating seniors will be
able to look back on their fraternity life as time well spent.
Headed by a capble staff of officers under the leadership of Morey Ganon the frater-
nity embarked on a series of activities culminated by a dinner in honor of the graduating
seniors. This traditional affair, arranged by the social committee, Sid Olson, Dave Schnur
and Hy Weiss, was a fitting farewell to our graduating fraters. Sid and his boys also
planned the other affairs including the 300 club l"Flashbulb" Redstonel, the V F W
lTresser's first taste of the amber fluidl, The Blacksmith Shop l"Noises" Bloom did it againl,
the Park Lane, the Spa and the many stag smokers.
Thirteen men were introduced to the fraternity this year. They were given the first
degree in a ritual held at Costrine's and were later welcomed into the fraternity at the
inaugural dinner-dance at the Park Lane.
Members who fell before the arrow of cupid during the past year were: Al Gross,
Milt. Schaeffer, Hy Weiss, Loeb Chrein and Joe Redstone. Soon to follow will be Sid Olson
and Lenny Lieberman.
To those in the graduating class, the members of Alpha Omega extend sincerest con-
gratulations and hope for success in the future.

With the loss of eleven members and the gain of four freshmen, our membership this
year was reduced to thirteen.
Under the able leadership of President Barbara Groben, we had an interesting and
enioyable year, It began with the traditional welcoming dinner for the freshmen in
The maiority of our meetings this year were open meetings featuring prominent
speakers. Among these speakers were Dr. Roswell K. Brown, who presented a talk and a
movie on his experiences in the Near East, Dr. William Lipp, speaking on pancreatitis, and
Dr. LaForge who spoke on obstetrics.
A tea was held on campus for pre-medical women, at which time an attempt was
made to impart some sage advice to those wishing to embark on the road to medicine.
An informal meeting for the members of the Society was held in the latter part of the
year. Dr. Frances Abel, a charter member of the Society, spoke on her experiences as
interne and resident.
The year ended with a dinner meeting with Dr. Sanes as our guest speaker. Farewell
was said to our President and lone senior member, Barbara Groben, with all wishing her
much good fortune.
So ended a successful year.

llDoc" Leonards' Annual Message
To the Graduates
As a tribute to the members of the faculty of the schools of medicine and dentistry
l respectfully dedicate this article.
To those men and women who gave their all in the interest of your welfare, you owe
a deep debt of gratitude.
As a mark of respect may l suggest you call them the unsung heroes in the field ot
Acquiring a degree is a difficult obiective. lt is not only through your efforts but also
due to their ability, patience and cooperation that you have reached your goal.
Four years ago you strolled into your respective schools as timid freshmen or novices.
ln a short time, armed with your "sheepskin" and with imposing authority you will leave
the honored portals of these schools as learned professional men and women.
Now, that you have achieved your aim, let me congratulate you and wish you well.
Every profession has a badge of honor, let yours be one of honesty and sincerity.
As time marches on if you do make a name for yourselves keep it undefiled, so that
it will not only bring honor to you but prestige to the school that taught you your profes-
sional art. ln other words "Honor your profession, and it will honor you."
Quoting a few lines from an old philosopher-"A good name is won by many actions
but lost by one". Another saying is, "lt often takes responsibility to bring out our ability".
I know all of you have ability and trust you will shoulder the responsibility placed upon
you with pride and humility.
To you, graduation day is one of ioy and rightfully so, but to me it creates a feeling
No doubt this is the last time the entire class wil be together in a body. After the
commencement exercies are over you will shed your caps and gowns and head in the
direction of the four winds. But at this time let's put away the grey clouds and look at
the silver lining that lies beyond.
ln conclusion, may l ask you one and all to be ever faithful to your Alma Mater. Don't
be a seldom Alumnus but be an active one.
As a parting gesture, remember to always revere the names of those who have labored
so diligently in your behalf. l repeat again, no matter how scared or eloquent your
language, words are still inadequate to express the gratitude you owe to them.
Finally, now that you are about to leave the halls of learning, what your University
wants you to do is to go forth with a song in your hearts and a prayer on your
lips, so that by your example this will be a better world in which to live.
Above all, serve humanity to the best of your ability. So, here's hoping that in your
nour of trial you will not only triumph but that in years to come your name will be
enshrined along side the "Greats" who have gone before you.
May God bless you, my colleagues, and so long.

FROM a humble start 30 years ago Colum-
bia Dentoforms have played an increas-
ingly important role in dental education.
Today every dental student in the United
States and Canada "cuts" his first teeth
on Dentoforms, for we supply Dentoforms
to every dental college in the U. S. and
Canada and to many in other lands.
In these 30 years there have been many
improvements and additions to Dento-
forms to meet the ever more exacting
demands of teachers, Today Dentoforms
number more than a thousand and present
conditions the student will encounter in
practice. And in graduate years, Dento-
forms continue to help clinicians in post-
graduate education and to help the busy
practitioner in his endless task of patient-
education by showing the better dentistry
he seeks to give.

BROWN Precision Attachments have been
used successfully since 1920, when patents
were granted to their inventor, Dr. I.
Brown. This event followed by only a few
years the impetus that Dr. Herman Chayes
gave to the advance in removable restora-
tions by the introduction of the precision
type of attachment.
So simple, yet so efifective and practical
are the design and mechanical principles
employed in Brown Attachments, that they
have defied every effort to improve upon
them for 30 years. Except for the addition,
about 15 years ago, of the proximal con-
tact type, to give the convenience of a
built-in proximal contact, no change in
design has been made. The sizes of the
Brown Attachment made today are identi-
col with those made 30 years ago - a
comforting thought if replacement parts
