The honor of materializing the idea and making it a part of P. S. history justly belongs to the Juni- or Class of ' 06 and ' 07, now our worthy Seniors. The first edition met with such popular demand that it at once became obligatory upon us, as Juniors, to perpetuate the custom by issuing another edition for ' 07- ' 08, hence the present work. In the present volume appears a memorandum of a small proportion of the many events which have occured during the present session. Some have been tabulated in the form of Class histories, poems, " grinds, " etc., while others have best been portrayed by illustrative cartoons and sketches. We refuse to be held responsible for the authenticity of any statement herein contained and, as regards the source of any " knock, " we will, forever, strictly belong to the " Know Nothing Party. " We feel under many obligations to those who have contrib- uted in any way and to the faculty for their valuable aid and support in the publication of the present " Clinic. " The Committee.

Well, the first few days were as usual, full of fright and horror, but, after the usu- al bath in aqua hyrogenii sul- phide, things settled down to the regular line of work. Very soon after this the election of officers followed. Bancroft, a big sturdy chief, as president; next came Serious Charlie Miles, as vice-president; Dick Nolte, as secretary, while Scanlan was chosen to handle the dough, which was always ver ' small, our chief ambition then was to spend it, now we haven ' t any to spend — and Parley Nelson, the " Big Dane, " was made sergeant-at-arms. Now, with such a sturdy bunch of officers, we were proud and started out to clean the whole bill. Some cleaned one thing, others another — Piersol, Gray, Fort, Kirk and Simon — anyone who has had them knows " that ' s all " . As months rolled on things kept coming our way, nothing more frequent, however, than a call down from Dr. Mitchell, one of our bone men. As things drew to a finish, all settled down to good work; the hilarity was over and the question of becoming a Sophomore was in order. But just before the end 24 THE CLINIC of the session that awful picture was taken. There was no fight to get it as the ' ' Sophs " were being examined in Embry- ology, when we pulled off the trick. Next came the exams, of spring and, after they were over,, a happy, though a worn-out looking crowd left the city, bound for places we all love dearer than Students ' boarding houses — " Home, Sweet Home " . During our vacation we were sadly informed of the death of our dear old friend Finnigan, who was one of our starters. His loss has been and always will be mourned by those wha knew him and his good spirit. In the following fall a gallant Sophomore Class returned, with a few new ones : Judge Summers, Freddy Darrow, Bill Barber, Moe Robinson and our dear old friend. Marrow. The first effort was successfully carried out in tanking the Fresh- ies " . Indeed, it was a grand melee. After the reunion of the Class, the annual election took place. Bancroft surrendered the Big Stick " to Dick Nolte and a very good administration fol- lowed. Tartar, alias Sturdy Wiley, was made vice-president ;. Haynes, our Pasteur the Second, was made secretary, while Loughrey handled the ' ' Dougle bag. " Lastly our Lengthy Sweeney, the ' ' Minute Man, " was made sergeant-at-arms. This year was one of little history; we didn ' t make any " grand- stand fight " when the Freshies had their picture taken, still we credit them with giving us the chance to do so. ' During this year we lost another of our members, Gilboy,. who also passed to the land of Eternal rest. When the second year was completed we again departed for home and at the beginning of the third year, we were short some of our old members, who deemed it advisable to go to other parts to finish their Medical Student Career, but they were replaced by a greater number of equally as good men, such as Slim Mor- gan, " Warbler " Leahy, " Big Chief " Whitaker, " Buzz " McCut- cheon, " Swissel " Austin, " Peggy " Dunham, " Y. M. C. A. " Burner and several more, who on account of space cannot be mentioned. But just a word about the " Two Old Sports from Oklahoma, " Oscar Francis and Chick Conn. No one knows. 25 THE CLINIC them unless he pays them a visit to their " Festive Budoir " . Our officers consisted of Hanson, president; Stevens, vice- president; Wise, secretary: Austin, treasurer, and lastly, our Oriental friend, Farag, sergeant-at-arms. Our greatest accom- plishment of the year being the publication of the " Clinic, " the first year book of the college. This was carried out by the fol- lowing board of editors: Hanson, Miles, Bancroft, Scanlan, Summers, Ryan and O ' Malley. The third year soon ended and examinations were over and after a summer ' s recreation all hands returned to be Seniors. With the same body of men. we opened again in the fall with no new faces save the Rosy Cheeked McCullough, a stranger, and for the first time among us, and Walker, who retired two years ago to join us this fall. Again a battle royal for the officers for the ensuing year. With O ' Malley as president: Collins as ffi ' st vice-president; Barbar, second vice-president; Dan Bevan, third vice-president; Crook, secretary; Wise, treasurer, and Coughlan, sergeant-at- arms. Now that this year is gliding by and the " Last is best of all the game, " we all look forward for a piece of parchment in the spring, and are trusting in the faculty till the ' ' breechen treaks " and wish the " Clinic " of ' 08 the heartiest success. Anthony W. Lamy, Historian. Tke Medical Student (With apologies to Rudyard Kipling) When the medical student goes off to school, He acts like a babe and drinks like a fool, And then wonders why he does ' nt like the school. Ere he ' s fit to be called a student. Now all you fellows who come here to stay. Just shut up your mouths and hark to my lay And I ' ll sing to you of a student as far as I may; A student that ' s fit for a student. When first you are quizzed and you ' re wishful to duck. Don ' t look or take heed of the man that is stuck — Just put up a bluff and trust to your luck, And make a good guess hke a student. When half of your answers fly wide of the mark. Don ' t think the Professor is always a shark, He ' s human, as you are— and oft in the dark. And he knows you are only a student. When, with an expression of just rushed for time. The Professor starts quizzing right down your line, Just take it easy, and take your time, For a quiz never startles the student (?) But the worst of your fears are exams, on ahead. You must study damn hard for all that is said, And if unprepared, they ' ll knock you out dead, And you ' ll flunk like a fool of a student. If some have flunked and the rest look white. Remember its cowardly to quit without fight; So get out your cribs, lie low and sit tight, And, at least, pretend you ' re a student. And if in exams, your head ' s full of pains. Till you scarcely know just what it contains, Just light up your pipe and handle your brains, And sit and look like a student. L. P. J., ' 08. 28 THE CLINIC S.

In the early days of October,. 1905, almost every train and a few of the boats that ran into Baltimore carried some individ- ual destined for the class of 1909, College of Physicians and Sur- geons. It was, indeed, a likely bunch of young men that was knocking for admission to the- then freshmen class of the his- toric institution. After the boys had duly registered and began to get acquainted it was found that many sections of the United States, as well as some foreign lands, were represented. There was Andrews, Bailey, Mac- Lean, 0 ' Brian, Sullivan and Sweeney from Massachausetts;. Causey from Georgia; Faucett from Alabama; V. Biddle, J. K. Biddle, Quillen, Talbott and Wilson from Ohio; Santos and Vil- ella from balmy Porto Rico; Nicholas Shihadeh f rom f ar-a-way Jerusalem, while R. A. Michelson had crossed the equator to get to Baltimore, he having come from South Africa. When the boys had gotten so far away from home they were excited and scared till all a-Trimble, and many of them were inclined to stutter and could be heard to murmur An-n-an. At this time many furious battles were fought with the class of ' 08, the details of which are so well recounted in a former volume of this history that it is not necessa ry to repeat them here. These battles concerned the ancient customs of tanking,, picture taking and the freedom of the dissecting room. 55 THE CLINIC The destinies of the class for this year were intrusted to the following officers: Victor Biddle, President; W. J. Costello, Vice-President; J. F. Wilson, Secretary and Treasurer, and G. A. Anderson, Sergeant-at-Arms. As the end of the school year came on the boys became of a more serious turn of mind, and, thanks to the noble efforts of Dr. Simon, they certainly did Wade in Chemistry. After that they Prest-on to the work of the second year, as they had been promised a Stif(l)er examination in embryology, as well as other subjects. The work of the year having been finished, the boys returned to their several homes, taking with them ap- petites well prepared to do justice to mother ' s cooking. The class of ' 09 came together for the second time in Octo- ber of 1906. They were wise to all the ins and outs of the tank- ing game by this time, and were fairly itching to get their hands on the incoming freshman class. For a record of how it was done the reader is referred to appropriate volumes of this history, edited by William Veenstra. However, let it be re- marked in passing that less than a thousand of the class of ' 10 were tanked, and after a few rushes they advanced holding olive branches high over their heads. New faces seen at this time were E. J. Bonness, of New Brunswick; S. H. Cassidy, of Tennessee; James D. Dinsmore, of Nova Scotia; F. H. Hutchinson, of Tennessee; B. A. Jenkin, of New York; Edward A. McMahon, of New York; W. T. Mor- rissey, of Connecticut; W. G. Phillips, of Kansas, and Samuel Silverstein, of New York. The following officers were selected for the year 1906-07: E. W. Rice, President; J. Hewson, Vice-President; J. W. Gard- ner, Secretary; W. A. Griffith, Treasurer; William Veenstra, Historian; J. B. Dodrill, Sergeant-at-Arms. The year was a particularly quiet and uneventful one, but things went forward with a rush and a Rohrer. However, pharmaeology was not the particular Fort of some of the boys, and there was trouble brewing. 56 THE CLINIC Toward the close of the year the class began preparations for the publication of the 1908 Clinic, and the following com- mittee was selected to have charge of the work: D. Faucett, of Alabama; T W. Causey, of Georgia; James K. Biddle, of Ohio; C. A. Andrews, of Massachusetts; H. H. Talbott, of Ohio; A. A. Parker, of Maryland; John Hardman, of Pennsylvania; J. F. O ' Brian, of Massachusetts. This committee organized by making the following assignments: Editor-in-chief, Faucett; Literary Editor, Biddle; Business Manager, Andrews; Grinds, Talbott; Illustrations, Hardman; Advertising, O ' Brian and Par- ker; Secretary and Treasurer, Causey. The third meeting of the class of ' 09 occured in October of 1907. The boys were now starting down the last half of the long road that leads to the coveted degree of M. D. , and the goal seemed very much nearer than when they were climbing up the first half of the road. This year the boys had the pleas- ure of watching from dry seats as sophomores tanked fresh- men, and cheering the combatants on to greater efforts. Pic- ture-taking rushes and dissecting room fights were also things forgotten to dignified juniors. The class was joined by Alexander Thomson, who had en- tered with the class of ' 08, but had done a year ' s hospital work in the meantime. E. Toomim, of New Jersey, was a new man this year. A. M. Reid was also a stranger at the beginning of the year. The second year ' s work was completed in Pittsburg in 1904-05. Only four men came down from the West Virginia University this year to join the class. These were A. Clyde Knight, A. E. Smith, J. A. ( " Bunk " ) Riffe, and J. G. Callison. These men apparently soon concluded that they were not fash- ioned for physicians, for Knight and Riffe armed themselves with tackle and began to fish in front of the building, while Smith and Callison tackled the job of polishing the base of the Washington monument. This suggestion seemed to appeal to other members of the class, for they were joined by Bubert and Jenkin, both of whom proved to be experts. 57 THE CLINIC Among the absentees may be mentioned the following: jeorge W. Bailey, Benjamin Kader, S. H. Cassidy, and T. HajTie AVedaman have entered the ] Iaryland University Medical Col- lege. Jesse W. Gardener and Fred AV. ] Ieddaugh are in Jeffer- son Medical College. Bertram T. Baker, who suffered an at- tack of scarlet fever last winter, with nephritis as a sequel, is at his home in New York this winter, his physician having ad- vised against his reentering school. A quiet election early in the term resulted in the selection of the following officers for the year 1907-08: President, Elmer Braddock, of Pennsylvania: Vice-President, W. T. Morrissey, of Connecticut: Secretary, Michael Abrams, of Maryland: Treas- urer, C. D, Gordon, of Xew Jersey; Historian, J. G. Callison, of West Virginia: Artist, Amillo Preziose, of Connecticut; Ser- geant-at-Arms, L. M. Archambault, of Rhode Island. The work of the junior year seemed seemed right strenuous, as the boys found themselves at the Beck of many professors. And although they did not Gamble, they were compelled often to go to Chambers. The daily excitement during the first half of the year was the meeting of the year-book committee and the stated ad- dresses its members made to the class. Early in the year the senior class sent down a committee to assist in getting out the junior annual— THE Clinic. Did the boys need them? Just look at the book and judge for yourself. One very noticeable thing was the small number of students present at lectui-es af- ter the 14th of December. The boys Avere at home supplement- ing the boarding-house rations they had been receiving since the opening of the school year. The grim reaper, Death, has come very near the members of the class in the death of the wife of A. Clyde Knight, of Mt. Clare, W. Va. During the Christmas holidays Mrs. Knight en- tered the City Hospital for surgical treatment, and an operation was performed on Monday, December 30. Death came at 10 o ' clock Saturday night, January 4, 1908. In this bereavement Mr. Knight has the active sympathy of each and every member of the class. THE CLINIC As this history goes to press the mid-year examinations are on, and already some of the boys have been cot Knapp-ing in the clinical loboratory. But the hope of the historian is that when the Gardener plucks the weeds each member of the class will be considered a choice flower, worthy of cultivation through the toils of seniorship and past unkind State boards into full fruition of finished members of the profession to which they aspire.

H Fall River, Mass. 85 Class History, 1910 HE session 1907-08 is one which the Class of Nineteen Hun- dred and Ten will long look back to with pride and pleas- ure, for it was in this, the second session of our training in the noble profession which we have under- taken, that so many pleasant events transpired. We returned in the autumn to our Alma Mater with our minds fully made up, that, no matter how great the glory of preceding classes had been, or what honors they had achieved, we, as Sopho- mores, would stand second to none. With these praiseworthy aspirations we proud- ly launched forth into our second year. Fate had removed many old faces from among us, but had re- compensed with many new ones, which we were glad to wel- come to our midst. During our vacation, we had laid aside forever all the petty frivolities and absurd ideas which are part of the make-up of Freshmen, and consequently we now felt that it was our priv- ilege, and in fact our duty, to look after the welfare of our subordinates, the class of 1911, and to set them in the straight 86 THE CLINIC and narrow path which it is the lot of first coursemen tO ' travel. We delayed the preliminary step until all the Freshmen had arrived, since it w as not our wish that any should be slighted. Accordingly, after we had elected officers, the crucial moment having arrived, we instituted the first degree. All but two or three Freshmen went through this degree, the ordeal simply consisting of washing away, as far as possible, the verdant coating which gave them an offensive air of freshness. We then gave them an interim of rest in which to collect their fast fleeing faculties, merely contenting ourselves by listening to- the dissertations of one, Michael St. Angelo, " Medical Student, ' ' for whom we formed so great an attachment, that we would not permit him to defile himself by walking to his seat, but honored him by passing him up through our midst. About this time the tug of war was held and the class of ' 10 was well represented, three of our number having a place- on the team which won the laurels for P. S. On November the eleventh, the Freshmen began dissection and were received with open arms. So cordial was our greeting, that they took heart, and one week later attempted to have a class picture made. This, however, being contrary to the curriculium mapped out for them, we, as guardians of their welfare, felt called up- on to prevent it. Suffice to say, the picture was not made. In the midst of these pleasures, a shadow fell over us, for our classmate, Mr. Homer Johnson, was compelled to leave us because of ill health. Close on to the trial of the first, came the second shadow, this time blacker in intensity, for it was the Great Reaper w ho visited us. Mr. John Butterly, who had joined us in the Fall, was taken from us. We mourn his loss, not only as a classmate, but as a man, whose ever constant smile and friendly greeting won for him the friendship of all w ho knew him. In passing, it is meet we pay tribute to him in the words of Shakespeare ' s Anthony — " His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him, that nature might stand up- and say to all the world, ' This was a man. ' " 87 THE CLINIC The holiday season was now upon us, and after we had en- joyed it to the fullest possible extent, we returned once more to the regular routine, which is characteristic of a medical stu- dent ' s life, and applied ourselves sufficiently — at least, it is to be hoped— to pass the examinations which are now confronting us. And now, when the time has come for us to write " Finis " to our career as Sophomores, we proudly look back over our past year and rest secure in the knowledge that no class has borne itself better than the Class of Xineteen-Ten. Harry L. Brehmer, Historian. 88 Sopnomores Greet tne Fresnmen ' Twas early one October day, The Sophomores held a meeting, To decide a time and way To extend the Freshmen greetings. What better plan could one suggest. Each member then was thinking, Than that above all the best, A sound and jolly tanking. Loud the shout from the president, For a battle fierce was on. And " Sophs " for the poor Freshies went. Singing the victor ' s song. Down to the door, like sheep. Rushed the excited Freshmen, Where the Sophomores guard did keep, Lest trouble there should happen. On their trembling knees they fall. With hearts in full contrition; And to the Sophomores they call. To make their feeble petition. " Would ' st thou, most noble Sophomore, To Freshmen so cruel be? ' Tis thee that we adore. And to thee for mercy plea. " " Brace up, brace up, my little boy, Thy weeping friend caress; ' Tis our will that you enjoy A dip at the P and S. " Then one by one they took them, To the tank in thirty-four. And there was placed before him The greetings of a Sophomore. ' Mid the laughing of the Seniors, He is borne by men of rank; ' Mid the yelling of the Juniors, He is plunged into the tank. Up, from the bottom, comes Freshie, His hair swinging to and fro; He doesn ' t look quite so dressy. While dripping from head to toe. " Now to each of you we say. Take this lesson we have taught. And bear in mind, day by day, ' Knowledge is not by money bought. ' Deep in the science of medicine. Dig for her treasure of gold; Whatever thy successes have been. Remember there are others untold. " Faucett ' 09. 89 On the eighteenth day of November, hushed was the laughter of the groups of students throughout the college halls. A pall of gloom enshrouded them as they passed on to their classes. Grief reigned where mirth was wont to hold sway. And rightly was this so, for upon this afternoon the Sophomore class was startled by the announcement of the death of their esteemed classmate, friend and comrade, John I. Butterly, who was taken from our midst after an an illness of but a few days. He had passed into the " Great Beyond, " and into a reward prepared for him by a just Prov- idence. Yet there lives in our memory, and there will con- tinue with us as long as memory itself, the life, the acts, the nobleness of bearing, the combination of all that is accept- able in a comrade, and finally, his tragic death far from home and loved ones. Had it been ordained to him the accustomed span of life, he would have been an honor to his chosen profession and a source of pride to his Alma Mater. We mourn, with his loved ones left behind, a common loss, we share their burdens of grief. Their sorrow is our sorrow, and until we shall all be gathered together on that Great Day, ever green, fragrant and pleasing shall be the memory of this one who has gone on before us. (Elass 19in JOHN " I. BUTTERLY THE CLINIC The Story o f a Fresnman in His Sophomore ana Junior Years ND lo, it came to pass that the time drew nigh for Silas, surname Perkins, to leave the home of his forefathers and return again unto the School of Knowledge, in the City of Baltimore, and Province of Maryland, and he did bid his father good-bye and his mother did fall on his neck and embrace him and he de- parted with many golden sheckles and much silver in his wallet. And when he did arrive in the City of Baltimore he did straightway meet many of the boys and they greeted him joy- ously, for they remembered the many times he had ' ' smiled " with them, and he did invite the boys to go to a tavern and they did sing the old songs and drank much wine, yea, even unto the early morning hours, and when the cock crowed Silas re- turned unto his boarding house, and, verily, his head did ache and his gait was uncertain. And behold, on the evening of the third day he did go unto a reception, which was given by a society called the " Y. M. C. A. , " which society did seek to lead young men into the straight and narrow way, and he did meet a beautiful damsel and she did smile upon him so that he did tremble all over and his heart failed him, and his knees did knock together, and he did mur- mur a few words unto her and asked that he might call upon her at her father ' s house, and the maid did give him permission for she saw that she had one of those which the ungodly term, ' ' sL good thing. ' ' And on the fifth day he did call upon her and she gave him a royal welcome and did cast down her eyes and did toy with his hands and bade him be seated and they spoke of many things, and when he did tell her of his forefathers she 93 THE CLINIC did laugh them to scorn and called them " Rubes, " and Silas was as clay in her hands, and he did also ridicule his parents. And she said that she would like to go unto the " Gilded Palace " which is termed by the worldly, the " Theatre. " And Silas did straightway purchase two tickets and did also purchase some weird and wonderful clothes, which did have a shape like unto garments that he had never seen before. And on the tenth day he did take her to the theatre, and he did buy her a box of sweet-meats, and after the performance she did invite him out to a supper and they did have many new things, such as " Quail on Toast, " and did drink a fiery wine which is called Champagne, and when he who served the sup- per presented the bill for payment, she did turn it over to Silas and he groaned exceedingly as he saw the many sheckles that he had spent, but she straightway smiled upon him and he did forget it. On returning home Silas did write unto his father and he said unto him, " Oh, my beloved father, send me, I entreat thee, some more sheckles for I am exceedingly hard-up and need many things, and I have this day had a grievous accident in the laboratory, having broken a microscope. Send me the money, therefore, that I may have it at once, and that thy son ' s name may be good in the College. " And his father barkened unto him and did send him much money. And Silas did again visit the fair maiden and did take her out to view many things and he did also learn to dance, and after a few weeks, lo, and behold, he was without funds and he began to borrow from his friends, and when his credit limit was reached he did again write unto his father and his father did sell some cattle and he did send the purchase money unto him and when he did write a third time unto his father his father was wroth and did not send him the money. And Silas, surname Perkins, was forced to sell the time- piece his mother had given him and he did sell many things in order that he might spend the money with the fair maiden and the time drew nigh when he did not have even one penny and he had an engagement with the damsel and he did go unto her 94 THE CLINIC and say, " Oh, thou fair one, I cannot go out with thee tonight, my funds are gone and my father will not send me more. I have spent, yea, even many sheckles upon thee and I have re- ceived no favor at thy hands. Wilt thou not stay in this eve- ning and entertain me in thy father ' s house for I have not the wherewithal! to take thee out. " And the maid mocked him and she called him a " cheap skate " and a " piker " and she did drive him from the house with bitter, taunting words. And Silas returned unto his boarding-house and he did buy a quart of Wilson ' s and he did drink deeply of the spirits and, lo, after two days he did again come unto his senses and straight- way applied himself unto his books. And the end of his Sophomore year drew nigh and he did return again unto the home of his father and when his father saw him he embraced him, fell upon his neck and kissed him, and Silas did reach out his hand unto his father ' s pocket and found $4.39, which he did take and he returned home and he did seek to interest his father again into the game of poker, but his father had grown much in wisdom and would play no more, for he remembered the many sheckles Silas had gotten from him the summer before. And Silas did obtain a position in the City as a conductor on a car and he did make much money and as the fall drew nigh lie returned again unto the City of Baltimore and Province of Maryland, and he had made an oath unto his father and said that " he would study and become one of the world ' s greatest physicians. " And about this time he met an ungodly man who taught Mm a game of rolling balls on a table which was termed, " pool, " and taught him to bet a quarter on one ball and Silas was com- pletely taken up with the game and he did play every night and he did lose much money and he did write unto his father to in- crease his allowance and his father did get a mortgage on the old house and did send the money unto his son. And he did get exceedingly proud so that his fellow stu- dents did call him a " swelled head, " and he did join a Secret Society, which is is termed a Fraternity, and they did make him 95 THE CLINIC roll a peanut for ten wear blocks and after he had rolled the peanut they did take him and did give him a good supper and much wine to drink and straightway after joining the Frater- nity , Silas, surname Perkins, became greater than ever in his mind and he did walk with an Arrogant air and the Sophomores, Seniors. Juniors and Freshm.en, yea, even his brothers in the Fraternity, laughed him to scorn. And so he did continue throughout the year and the money which his father had sent him was gone and he did ask for more money and his father was forced to sell more cattle, but he did send him the money and as the end of the year drew nigh Silas feared exceeding the examinations and applied him- self diligently unto his books and he did take the examinations and he again returned home unto the home of his father that he might rest himself for a short time.

' ' ' ' Where are you from ? ' ' ' ' I am from Massachusetts. " " So am I, " ' ' Good I glad to find some- one from near my home. ' ' At first friendless, but by many of the above inquiries, we Freshmen soon became acquainted and or- ganized as the Class of 1911. by choosing for President, J. Smyzer; Vice-President. J. Carey; Secretary, J. O ' Con- nor ; Treasurer, J. W. Callahan: Sergeant-at-Arais, W. D. Kahle. In choosing these men as leaders we displayed very good judgment, they hav- ing proven themselves worthy and we, as a class, having at- tained success and prosperity under their leadership. One of the first incidents of importance informed to us. was that in order to prove ourselves worthy of recognition by the Sophomores, we must enter in- to the yearly tanking tourna- ment, and this we did, for one day while assembled in Room 33, waiting the arrival of Dr. Hay den. there came a rush, and shouts of " Freshmen to the tank. " " Hold together, fellows, " was the cry of our President. Slowly, but surely, we were 100 THE CLINIC taken individually into Room 3i, there displaying our skill as divers to the amusement of the upper classmen. We thought we might be able to resist the attack of the " Sophs, " but their experience of the previous year aided them greatly, and safely can we say, that next year we shall introduce some of 1910 ' s methods to the class of 1912. Quietude now followed. We attended strictly to lectures, and by various instructions our knowledge seemed to greatly increase. When we saw Dr. Trimble perform an operation in the amphitheatre, it seemed easy, but when quizzed by Dr. Ull- man our smile disappeared, for to him we showed we had much to learn in Anatomy. Having received no interference from the " Sophs " since the tanking, someone proposed having our picture taken, for surely every Freshman would desire to show his classmates to his friends while upon his Christmas vacation. The custom is that Sophomores must prevent, if possible, this affair occurring. Carefully we planned for every man to meet at Pleasant and Saratoga Streets, rush for the hospital steps, gain our posi- tions, and the photographer will pass in an automobile, snap the pictures, and it will go down in history that 1911 baffled the " Sophs ' in the picture combat. All seemed easy, but strange to say, as we rushed for the steps the " Sophs " sprung from God only knows where, and our attempt at picture-taking was sadly ended. We had heard much about the dissecting room, how one must cut up a human body, and not at all did it seem a pleasant task. One morning we were told to report in the dissecting room at 1 p. m. , every afternoon until we had dissected what was required of all Freshmen. The first day, will be remem- bered by all, we were lead by the " Sophs " to a board upon which was tabulated the rules and regulations sworn by all that is holy to obey and follow them. There but one hour, we felt quite cheerful and the surroundings seemed more pleasant than anticipated. Suddenly there were shouts from the tables of our friends, the " Sophs, " " Freshmen, sing! ' ' " Sing is right, " was our response, and we started to sing, " We ' re Here Because THE CLINIC We ' re Here. " Somehow or other the song did not please them, they shouting, " Freshmen, out, " dropping knives and forceps, we made for the doors, and it has been reported that some of our men (Gocke) ran even as far as the Post Office. Time quickly passed, daily we were present at our post, the centre of attraction now being, what school will turn out the greatest number, and what class will have the largest repres- entation, at Ford ' s Theatre, Medical Night, December 3. In this, P. and S. lead, and the class of 1911 showed loyalty to their school and a worthy cause, by not only having the largest delegations, but making the most noise. This about concludes our history. We have been tanked, unsuccessful in having our pictures taken, chased out of the dissecting room, we must recognize the superiority of the Sopho- mores. There is still one more battle, the annual baseball game, with McGuffin in the box and Smithy behind the bat, we feel confident that the flag shall wave from the Freshmen pole. John F. Shea. 102 THE CLINIC First Week at tne P. and S. Strolling, strolling, came the Freshmen, From the States both far and near; And they met upon the terrace, Trembling both from tales and fear. From the tales their friends had told them, Of the Sophomores, strong and brave. Who are rulers of the Freshmen, And " The Freshmen " are their knaves. So the Freshmen came together, And they said, " We ' ll show no feather. For we know we ' re in the right, And the Sophomores we ' ll show fight. " And we had a man named Eckerdt, Who ' d been here in Nineteen-Six; And he swore by all thats Holy, That he knew the Sophomore tricks. Now, this man called a meeting. And we swore by " all in Rank, " That we could ' nt stand the pressure, To be put in Simon ' s Tank. But the Sophomore ' s decided. That the " tanking " we must take; For they said, " Did we not get it? " So, these Freshmen, they must take. It was on a Friday morning. Just as cold as cold could be, And we Freshmen were assembled In the old room " Thirty-Three. " When a yell out in the hallway, Brought us Freshmen to our feet; And we heard the Sophomores yelling, " Grab the Rats, they have cold feet! " 103 THE CLINIC So they rushed us down the hallway, And into Thirty-Four we went, And there we saw an awful sight, That almost made us faint. The Sophomores showed no mercy. And our President they had ; He was standing in the water, " Ye Gods, " he did look mad. So they took us in by one ' s and two ' s, And threw us in the tank, And we became members Of the Freshmen ' s " Water Rank. " But we have this consolation. That you hear all Freshmen say, " That every dog, both great and small. Will some day have his day. " ir. D.

O ' B., ' 09. 109 THE CLINIC ine Average Medical Student y HE average medical student comes to college with Cyj ideals that are apt to suffer a shock before the Christmas holidays. He has some very exalted HU! ideas, thanks to a series of dreams, that he tries in vain to realize in the actual work of the session. These few words are not intended as a rub on our Alma Mater, but rather to impress you with that well-worn fact, that there is considerable difference between actual and fancied experience. I know in my own case I fancied myself a second Osier, until a few searching questions from Professor Simon, on his beloved branch, brought me to earth with a crash. As a whole, the bumps his ideas receive along ideal lines, are good for him. For the man that is hunt- ing the ideal generally loses sight of the practical, and we all know that it is the practical man that stands in the charmed circle of success. After the newness has worn off, he settles down to work, and if he has the stuff in him that makes a med- ical man, his opportunities come thick and fast to prove it. Soon he finds congenial fellow students, and what a help it is to find these men, men that have pretty much the same inspirations and aspirations that you have, and, if possible, a little more. I wonder if we realize just how much we owe these men. How often have we received an impetus to harder effort in hearing the recitations of a fellow student that showed conclusively that the man had the knowledge behind his words. A few months, generally, is enough to demonstrate to your own satisfaction, whether or no you have picked the right profession. I know there are times in every medical student ' s life, that he feels that his proper vocation is laying brick and not conning the points of interest on the Petrous portion of the Temporal bone, or explaining the difference between a Halogen no THE CLINIC Radical and the bi-products of Destructive Distillation. But this mood soon passes, and the n ext day he looks confidently forward to relieving Dr. Stokes of his position as Health Officer, or of abstracting his best friend ' s Vermiform Appendix with an exaltation that is truly remarkable. A great deal has been said and written concerning the temptations that beset the pathway of the student. It is my judgement that his temptations are no worse than those of the average young man of the city. Of course, the home influ- ence is lacking in his case, but on the other hand, there is hard- ly a day that passes, but he has a chance to see by actual object lesson, the price paid by the man yielding to temptation. This is especially true of third and fourth-year men. And so it goes: ' ' Each morning sees some task begun, Each evening sees its close; Something attempted, something done, Has earned a night ' s repose. " Sometimes he is in tune with life ' s melody, sometimes badly off the key, but on the whole, bravely struggling on, and proud, indeed, is he when he can stretch forth his good right hand and feel within its grasp that coveted diploma.

One would think to look at them that they had been the sole perform- ers of the operation. Who would intrust them- selves to a person with one eye, anyway. On hearing this, Mr. Forceps spoke up, saying, " All you are good for is probing into everybody else ' s affairs. " This tended to embarrass Miss Probe beyond response, but Miss Scalpel soon came to her succor with a cutting remark: " Mr. Forceps, your limit is squeezing blood-vessels. It is a wonder you wouldn ' t join a lemon club. " Now, Mr. Forceps was well acquainted with Miss Scalpel ' s sharpness, but ventured to re- ply: " Jealous. " Just at this moment Mr. Grooved-director ad- ded to the turmoil by saying: " Listen! Had it not been for my direction the operation would have been a failure. ' ' To this the band around the nurse ' s hat played " Our Director. " In the interim Mr. Scissors had obtained a scissor-hold on Mr. Grooved- director, exclaiming, that such preposterous ( ?) conceit should be strangulated. But owing to the fortunate presence of Mr. Truss, the strangulation was reduced with the aid of Miss Scal- pel. Then there was a temporary quietness, when of a sudden Miss Catgut got her back up and accused Mr. Needle-holder of having held hands with Miss Curved Needle. To this, Mr. Nee- dleholder, blushing to the color of the blood which covered him, innocently replied, that it was a pressing engagement. All en- joyed a laugh at the expense of Miss Catgut, who swore that she would poke Miss Curved Needle ' s eye out at the earliest 115 THE CLINIC opportunity. To this, ever jovial Miss Curved Needle replied: " Then, I shall not be able to see the point. " This reply was greeted with great hilarity, which tended to make Miss Catgut boiling mad, hence Mr. Retractor thought it best to act as peace- maker by bringing about a retraction of everything which was said, to the utmost satisfaction of all present. At this moment the nurse came along with Miss Tenaculum and gave them the hook. O ' B., ' 09. 116 THE CLINIC A Prophesy OME near, ye nations, to hear; and harken ye people; let the earth hear what shall come to pass in the year one thousand nine hundred and eight, the tenth month thereof. In that year and month many sons of the tribes- of Freshites and Sophilites shall come unto the city and take up their habitation in the " place of the skull and cross-bones. " The Freshites, which are those without " the salt of wisdom, " ' shall wax strong in manner and become as a " sore eye " to the Sophilites, or " those of the swelled skull. " Then will the Soph- ilites make ready for them a place of much cold water; and when they are brought near to it they shall all tremble as the ashen leaf when the wind stirreth. And, although in the midst of the Freshites shall be many with bodies like unto the whales of the sea, and others with limbs like unto the reeds by the riv- ers, it shall come to pass that none shall be able to stand against the mighty throng about the water. Each one shall be singly seized and passed through it with much soiling of linen and rending of garments. Around and about, and in the high places, shall stand men, " real men, " " the salt of the earth, " the wisest of the wise, who will cry out with one voice, ' ' 0, piteous spec- tacle, " and with one accord turn and go their way with a full realization that " wisdom knoweth none of these.

Committeemen , THE CLINIC The General Effect of a Medical Xraining _ DUCATION in general has been regarded for many i JT ' years as almost entirely essential in the develop- " " ment of a man, not onlv from the mental stand- point, but from moral as well. It is now assumed that a man reared in the refining influences of a Christian home, and liberally educated has distinct advantages over a less fortunate brother, for primarily his view of life should be broadened. He should have discarded in so far as possible the mean little things that so often unwittingly crop out in almost every one of us. In fact, true education should and does, in a very large degree, develop those qualities which make for a gentleman in the best sense of the word. Education is a very broad term. Volumes have been written concerning almost every conceivable phase of education, and nearly all wri- ters agree on one point, at least, that it is uplifting. The writer of this little article does not intend that this paper should in any way be considered as a scientific treatise, but only desires to, in a measure, correct a growing sentiment that is said to exist in certain localities and that could not be regarded as very complimentary to the medical student. In short, it is the purpose of the writer to briefly present the ad- vantages that a medical training offers to any one, and to show briefly the effects that such a training should produce on his character, and how it should later influence his life. There is no profession or business where the preliminary furnishes a man with so many opportunities to study the mis- takes so common to human nature as in the profession of medi- cine. The very nature of a doctor ' s work compels extreme 120 THE CLINIC caution and mathematical exactness, for when mistakes have been made it is often too late to rectify them. Patience, a vir- tue which many of us do not possess, must be cultivated and is of necessity developed. A medical training teaches best of all, unselfishness. One ' s own wishes become of secondary impor- tance. Strict attention to business, even at the expense of per- sonal pleasure, becomes the ruling passion of a medical man ' s life. Personal cleanliness in body, as well as wearing apparel, are matters which are, or should be, second nature to the suc- cessful physician or surgeon. The medical man learns self-re- straint. The many cares of his life are often irritating in the extreme, for it is well known that one in ill health is in many respects like a child and must be humored very frequently. The doctor endeavors to hide his impatience and worry, and tries al- ways to remember " that every cloud has its silver lining. " I, therefore, think it is with pardonable pride that we, as students of medicine, can say that we are connected with the noblest of professions, considered from every viewpoint. For as Dr. Preston says, " the doctors are now engaged in a sort of self -suicide " — that is, they are engaged in the work of prevent- ation and spread of disease. Here again the unselfish side of the doctor is apparent. Certainly there can be no nobler work than the instruction of the masses in the care of the body, and the study and treatment of disease. Aside from the effects on a man ' s character and general habits resulting from the environment of a medical training, I think it would not be exaggerating facts to say that there is no other individual form of education as far reaching and as com- plete as the medical education. The study of medicine is a science, or rather, a combination of many sciences that are far reaching, carrying the tireless investigator out into a thousand different channels of interesting study and work. From force of habit, for ' we are, after all, largely creatures of habit, " we are, whether we realize it or not, developing those qualities (which have been enumerated) to a higher degree of perfection than we would, perhaps, have in any other walk of life. As students we have seen more vividly than pen can por- 121 THE CLINIC tray the results of mistakes made by others. We may profit from these object lessons if we choose. We have seen a few of the many benefits to be derived from a medical training. If there are failures in the profession, as there are, (and what walk of life is without its failures?) it is not the fault of the chosen work or the training, for it is well known that it is only by overcoming difficulties that true char- acter is developed. The true cause of failures lie deeper— it is something inherent in the man himself. H. E. LONGSDORF, ' 10. 122 THE CLINIC I NV onder Who owns the checkered suit at the Phi Beta Pi House.

Have you ever noticed the prodigal sons as they come back to school in the fall, —bright looking, robust, ruddy-cheeked rascals— great, large human beings, full of en- thusiasm? If you haven ' t, you should. Watch them fading into transparency, gradually, until now you can see fellows in the corridors with shapes like " Nabisco Wafers. " Poor devils, with that far-away look in their eyes, leaning up against the walls, tired to death from carrying weights in their pockets to keep from blowing away. What has caused this transformation? Study? No, emphatically, no! It is the result of attending these " canary banquets, " t. i. d. Many of these poor devils wear glasses, having strained their eyes looking for food. If any of your friends are thinking of making you a present, why not suggest a microscope? Bring it to the table and save your eyes. One good thing, the plates haven ' t many cracks in them — if they had, our Year Book would be full of obituaries, for many a poor fellow would starve to death if a few crumbs should fall into the cracks and be overlooked. But cheer up, students, death will settle all of these argumients. You will never have a leucocytosis after one of these boarding-house meals; and you need never about gout. 126 THE CLINIC On Fridays (fish day) every man is served with a whole shmer,— a pretty Httle fish, five Microns long. It reminds me of the multitude feeding on a loaf and seve n fishes. Now, that the year is drawing to a close, when time is precious, why not suggest to your boarding mistress that she put the meals up in a couple of capsules,— a good way to serve them, don ' t you think? Or, you could arrange to take them hypodermatically, and save your already weak stomach from further irritation. W. F. S.

Free was toast-master and in his element. He introduced the speakers in. the happy vein peculiar to Spencer M. Dr. Bevan, in most interesting manner, reviewed briefly the growth and development of the college, the present status of medical education and the medical colleges, and emphasized the need of a strong, active, and working alumni association. Dr. J. W. Simpson, in a bright and cheerful way, touched upon our friendly and close association with the University of West Virginia and spoke of the need of maintaining the high standard of efficiency of the past and present. Dr. McGlannan responded to the toast of the alumni asso- ciation. Mac is budding into an after-dinner speaker of no small merit. Dr. Okey R. Davis, representing the class of 1907, delivered a star address. Dr. J. E. Sawtell, ' 86, of Kansas City; Dr. David Streett, ' 78, and Dean of the Baltimore Medical College; Dr. Chas. G. Hildebrandt, ' 81, of Logansville, Pa. ; Dr. C. Em- mert Stuart, ' 87, of Pittsburg, Pa. ; Dr. Thos. Lynch, ' 81, of Leonardtown; Dr. R. K. Palmerton, ' 81, of Cannonville, N. Y., and others, responded to the call of our toastmaster and related many interesting and amusing anecdotes of former days. Dr. McGlannan had mounted his Pegasus (for he is a poet as well as an after-dinner speaker) and composed a number of verses, which were sung with much gusto to the air of popular melodies. 140 THE CLINIC We sang Auld Lang Syne in the small hours of the morning. Many of the visiting alumni and members of our faculty met again at Atlantic City the following day. All of our alumni, who can possibly do so, should not fail to attend the meetings of the American Medical Association. Those who do not, cannot appreciate the advantages obtained by attending, nor the pleas- ure and enjoyment of associating with former classmates and old friends. This is especially true under the favorable con- ditions offered by Atlantic City as a meeting place. We will endeavor to have a definite headquarters for the P. and S. at the meeting of the A. M. A. in Chicago. The following alumni attended the annual banquet given to the graduating class: Spencer M. Free, ' 80; D. C. Mock, ' 04; Thos. Lynch, ' 81; S. J. Watermorth, ' 93; W. A. Gordon, Elk- ton, Va.; J. E. Sawtell, ' 86; E. F. Smith, ' 05; C. Emmert Stu- art, ' 87; L. E. Wolfe, ' 91; Chas. G. Hildebrandt, ' 81; Ben Coe, ' 95; David Streett, ' 78; Pearl Wilhams, ' 96; W. T.

Without " fun " life is a dismal drudgery; with- out sense it is an effervescing fizzle; by the proper mixture of the two, a glorious triumph. Amidst all the jollity and fun, each of us sincerely wants his life to be a worthy one. To that end I direct your attention to the following: Give heed, my friends, the test of worth Is not the hold we have on earth; Not that we ' re young, nor that we ' re old. Nor that we have a mint of gold; Not that we ' ve travelled near or far, Or know the life of farthest star; Not what we can be, or can do. Not what in plans we have in view; These things are not the test of worth, Not now, nor when we ' ve gone from earth. By what we ' ve said and what we ' ve done, While toiling here in storm and sun Children of men, as yet unborn, Will hold us high in praise or scorn. This, this alone, the test will be, The test for you, — the test for me. What we say and what we do are, therefore, of supreme import. That man is worth most to the world who adds most to human joy; who plants the fragrant flower of Hope in the fainting heart of despair and kisses it with the sunshine of Love; who fears not to enter the deep, dark valley of sin and pollution and laying hold of the fast decaying soul of his brother, 143 THE CLINIC carries it up into the mountain of transfiguration; who seeks not his own comfort and pleasure, but entering the home of never-ending toil and poverty paints the pallid cheek of misery and care with the rose of health and happiness. " Live up to the highest that ' s in you, Be true to the voice in your soul; Let love and your better self win you, And follow them on to the goal. Afar in the path of Endeavor The temples of Happiness gleam; They stand as a promise forever That living is more than a dream. " Spencer M. Free, M.D. 144 THE CLINIC Wko ' s Vho and Wh W. Q. C. Hill, " Bill, " ' 09. This Beau Brummel was born somewhere in the wilds of W. Va., but does not show it. He always had a leaning towards medicine, and wishing to get an education in all its branches, became a drug clerk in his early youth. W. G. C. has a very winning smile and nice taking ways, so in a short time was able to start a drug store of his own. Business prospered, so " Bill " is now making strides to become a surgeon as well. P. S. He is tall and slender, fast getting bald, and weighs 147. A. N. Hanson was born in Fillmore, Utah, 1871. He went to school, punched cows, and lived the life of a western boy generally until about the age of sixteen, when he gave the cows a rest and entered school, where he remained until about twen- ty. He then began teaching and after several years experience as a pedagogue, did university work at the University of Utah. As a side issue, he " dibbled " in politics from the time he was grown until he entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1904, where this feature of his career has not been entirely neglected, he having been conspicuous in all affairs of his class. He is tall, slim, and of impressive bearing. P. S. Hanson is our Opsonic Specialist. L. Porter Jones, ' 08, (Slats) was born in Pennsboro, W. Va., and strange to say, he is proud of it. His father being a doctor, he early decided to enter the profession himself. Desir- ing to prepare himself for his great work, he went to Marietta. Being a very diligent student, he finished his course in two years. He then started making arrangements for the study of 145 THE CLINIC medicine. After vainly attempting to get the P. and S. moved to Pennsboro, he found he must come to Baltimore. It is rum- ored that he carried a cane in his freshmen year. P. S. " Slats " is a sport. Elmer Braddock, ' 09, (Brad). He was perpetrated upon mankind in the year 1881. This happened somewhere in Greene County, Pa. The town in which he was born is not on the map, and " Brad " won ' t tell, so place can ' t be mentioned. He fol- lowed the plow in his youth, but by having a pull and putting up a strong bluff, was appointed school-teacher in " Podunk Holler. " However, he became infected with the get-rich-quick bacillus and immigrated to the oil-field. Driving mules was not very lucrative, so he forsook the fields and came to P. and S. P. S. " Brad " Sicears. J. F. Wilson, ' 09, ( " Jim " ). Born in Meigs Co., Ohio, Jan- uary 1, 1882. As a boy " Jim " was known as the village sprin- ter, although his fame as such was limited to his home town. He went to school, and played on a farm, until about the age of sixteen, when he left home on a ' ' bike ' ' — not knowing where he would land. He was " up against it " several times, but for- tune stood by him. He finally landed in a bank, where things came his w ay for several years. His father being an under- taker, ' " Jim ' ' conceived the idea of forming a partnership and subsequently entered the " P. and S. " to prepare himself for his part of the scheme. P. S. Jim has yellow hair. J. Dodrill, ' 09, ( " Doddy " ), He claims the verdant and lux- urious hills of Nicholas County, W. Va., as his native heath. Like most of our shining (?) lights, Doddy has been a farmer. He was an industrious lad, and made enough money by teach- ing school to come to Baltimore to study medicine. He is tall, affable and angular, with sandy hair and nice red cheeks. P. S. " Doddy ' ' drinks soda water. John Leahy, ' 08, (jack). Born in New London, Conn., and there spent his early days at his chosen occupation, loafing. For 146 THE CLINIC a time " Jack " was President of the Sons of Rest, but resigned when he conceived the great idea of going to school for a live- lihood. Both at Yale and P. and S. he has been successful in carrying out his great idea. His one great ambition is to rival Caruso. P. S. " Jack " sings tenor. Marvin Stone, ' 08,( " Marv " ). Born somewhere in the vic- inity of Parkersburg, W. Va. , about 1878. Leaving the public schools and the farm, he started to work in a bank, but found lie was not sufficiently grounded in the rudiments of knowledge, so he betook himself to Marietta, 0., to college. Successes at football, etc., made " Marv " ambitious, and he decided to climb higher, so pointed his course towards medicine. He is, at pres- ent, one of the greatest embryonic surgeons of senior class. P. S. , ' Marv " is !t with the babies. A. Preziosi, ' 09, ( " Prezzie " ), was born in Italy, July 10, 1886. He came to this country at the age of four, but had al- ready had the impress of those masters of art stamped upon him, which was later to figure so much in his life. His first task on arriving in America was to unravel the mysteries of the English language and incidently to amuse his companions and tantalize his mother by drawing pictures on the walls of the home. " Prezzie " didn ' t take to books very much, but rather preferred expressing his ideas through illustrated drawings, etc. He en- tered the French-American Academy, of Springfield, Mass., and, despite his love for art, finished there in 1904, and subse- quently spent one year in the college department of the same school. He began the study of medicine in 1905 and is well known among the boys and " Profs. " He is short, plump and hearty and of a pleasant disposition. P. S. " Prezzie " doesn ' t like the girls(?). Victor Biddle, ' 09. ( " Vic " ), originated in one of the rural districts of Athens County, Ohio, in 1876. " Vic " was indus- trious, and by getting his chores done early, and squandering a little oil, he acquired enough knowledge to become superin- 147 THE CLINIC tendent of Margarets Creek School. Not satisfied with this, he decided to study medicine, and drifted to P. and S. in 1905. Neither the " sons of toil, " nor the medical profession, have profited by " Vic ' s " ambition. P. S. " Vic " is ill-natured. Richard Rice, ' 09, ( " Dick " ) — claims Hartford, Conn., as the pastures of his youth. He spent his youth mostly in hand- ing out patent medicine, soda water, et cetera, over a counter. Realizing that he was not doing enough good for mankind, he left the store, and, after drumming awhile, came to Baltimore. He seems to be well satisfied with his progress and the good he is doing. P. S. " Dick " is smooth. Carrol Bancroft, ' 08, (Answers to any name) . Reared in Pottsdam, N. Y., but does not tell it. We did manage to trick him into telling that he was born in Kansas. He prepared him- self for a teacher, but was too well known about home, and travelled as far as the Philippine Islands before he got a posi- tion. He succeeded in fooling the " Filipinos " for awhile, but they, too, soon found him out, and he needs must leave. In Japan his luck was worse, and in China the climax was reached. Being sick at heart and much cast down, he returned home. He decided that medicine was the only cure for his unsuccess, and has hopes of graduating this coming spring. P. S. " Ban " is loud and windy. J. J. O ' Malley, ' 08. Born in the little town, Avoca, situated among the smoky hills of Pennsylvania. When a lad, his prin- cipal occupation was going to school and doing nothing generally. He early developed a love for music, and in 1897 went over to Europe to study. He didn ' t seem to like this part of the coun- try and after a year ' s time came home. Having acquired a roaming disposition, he turned his face toward the West, where he spent two years studying the effects of a pure atmosphere, after which he began the study of medicine. He was a mem- ber of the committee which published the first Clinic, and is 148 THE CLINIC now president of his class. He has blue eyes, red hair, and is of medium statue. P. S. O ' Malley is a specialist on diseases of the pituitary gland. W. A. Griffith, ' 09, (Peter [or Griff]), was born some- where else, but soon came to Baltimore to make his way in the the world. His earliest dreams were those of owning railroads, so he became a stenographer to a railroad man. He soon tired of this and took to regulating Uncle Sam ' s affairs. He is still dabbling in Uncle Sam ' s affairs, but his dreams now are of be- ing a great surgeon. P. S. " Peter " is a perfect gentleman. 3 .v-; Or Quack and a Hen Medic. 149 GRIN :.%r THE CLINIC Grindf Chronic Brokitis— a disease of students. When attacked in the acute form they do not go to the hospital, but to " Uncle Bennie ' s. " Miss (during post theatre supper at New Howard) — Tell me, Dr. Jenkins, is man really made of dust? Jenkins (looking at bill) — Well, he would have to be, if he wanted to travel with you very much. ' ' Bill " Veenstra was almost arrested the other night for impersonating an officer. He gave three raps at a side door and got a drink for nothing. Dr. Beck says it requires a neuralogist to appreciate the sense of touch. Tartar — If I had the ideas of myself patented, they would be worth more than the practice of medicine. (Dr. Friedenwald appears at 1.30) Talbott — I wonder what he will talk about? Griffith — About half an hour, I suppose. St. Angelo, on being asked, in the Histological laboratory, what specimen he was studying, replied, The Philippine Tube. He said he had just finished reading it up in Parasol ' s Histology. God and the Dr., we alike adore — Just on the brink of danger, not before — The danger passed, both ahke are requited — God is forgot, and the Dr., slighted. Rice — Dr., this is a case of rickets, is it not? Dr. Magruder — No, this is a case of whooping-cough. Rice — Oh, yes, thats what I meant. (Please put in year book.) (Request granted.) 151 THE CLINIC He started in his freshmen year, And gained deep learning there, He mean ' t to go through college, and Become a millionaire. He grew to be a Sophomore — His wisdom came in chunks; He thought a salary would do Of fifteen thousand plunks. His junior year passed rapidly; He ' d learned by this time, that A man ' s in luck if he can earn — Say, fifteen hundred, flat. And when his senior year was o ' er, He started out to seek A modest, little internship, With ten dollars every week. 152 THE CLINIC Sophomores must not read this- side down. -therefore, we print it up- ■NOixneiaiNOO NvwHsaH j •pnaq siq uo puB s o:; s e aq jj ' Moqamos : i % cjaS n, moujj a ' pBaa ApT8BJL e s,9q uiaod SIq: Bqx ' Suiqi jBj; B o; s:ju90 ua: aaSBA n. v mo •Moqs B JO : lq :jSBa[ aq: scjaS aq jj A .oqi?uB ' : no i pui; n ' S — Avouij o:j : ou :;q2no aq Suiq:;auios si :n aaouioqdos b saujoM. :jBq: Suiq:).j{uB s ajaq Ji (Dr. Litsinger calling roll) — Is Mr. Costello here?

Dodrill, at the theatre, became very much interested in one of the actresses, and, on seeing her do the above high kick stunt, exclaimed, " She ' s ruined herself with me. " Stroble (after Rosenthal ' s lecture on hair) — Yes, sir, this prescription will raise hair on a billiard ball. Wilson (who rooms with Morrow) — But will it raise hair on a pumpkin? Stroble — Well, I should say so. Wilson — I ' ll copy it and get my room-mate to try it. Higgins — Say, Haynes, my room-mate is some place in the church. Haynes — Why! how do you know? Higgins — Because I just saw one of my coat buttons on the plate. 154 THE CLINIC Sullivan (3rd yr.) — I ' ve had a bad breath, what shall I do? Ryan (3rd yr.) — Stop breathing.

Stroble — A sure cure for hemorrhoids, " Sit on ice. " As Kelly was watching the door at the sophomore class meeting one day, a rather good-looking young man rushes in. Kelly, like a Jeffries, stops him with the remark, " Say, fresh- man, what the hell do you want in here! Beat it now. " Kelly is now busy apologizing to Dr. Herring, a new professor in neu- rology. There ' s another young man, named Kocyan, Whose name always causes commocyan; But, he ' s not to blame. That his queer-sounding name. Is pronounced as one may take a nocyan. St. Angelo ' s interpretation of the following passage in Gray. " An appendix is found only in man and the higher apes, therefore, women never have appendicitis. There ' s a jolly old fellow named Newell, Who is almost as strong as a mewell ; As our sergeant-at-arms. He has kept all his charms. Though compelled to fight more than one dewell.

Dr. Chambers — Describe the operation on neck after a gun- shot wound. Santos, ' 09 — Well, if the carotid artery was destroyed am- putation would be necessary.

Noland (aside to Causey, angrily) — If I knew all about it,. I wouldn ' t be in the lab. Dr. Stokes — What is the effect of the Pneumococcus on gelatin? Locher — It produces a local inflammation. Robinson asks Morgan the meaning of orchitis. Morgan, in his beautiful bass voice replies, " Inflammation of the orchestra. " " Dr. Lockwood — Farag,is tuberculosis of the tonsils common?

The little anatomy is covered with dust. But stern and forbearing it stands; The little dissecting knives covered with rust, And only two days ' till exams. Time was when the little anatomy was used, And the dissecting knives bright and clean; And that was the time when our Freshman youth, Whetted them sharp and keen. " I ' ll read you through every night, " he said, And study as a Freshman should; So he toddled off to his trundle bed. And no doubt his intentions were good. But the days passed quickly and time flew by. And now the exams, were near; And the little Freshie with groan and sigh, Shuddered and trembled with fear. The day of judgement came at last. The day that makes brave hearts quake; The questions were plied to him thick and fast. But no answer could he make. Down on the flunk ie roll he went. Indeed ' twas a bitter pill; Oh, the years are many, the years are spent, And the Freshman ' s a Freshman still. Now see ye to it, Oh first year class. That your anatomy ye hold dear; And when the awful exam, time comes, Your heart shall not quiver with fear. 160 THE CLINIC MICROBES. They say there ' s microbes all around, hunting for their prey, There ' s nothing pure tew eat or drink, and no safe place to stay; There ' s microbes in the dew fall and malary in the sun, ' Taint safe to be outdoors at noon or when the day is done. There ' s bactery in the water and tricheny in the meat, Ameeby in the atmosphere, calory in the heat; There ' s corpuscles and pigments in the human be ' ins blood, And every kind of thing existin sense the flood. Them bugs is all about us, jest waitin for a chance. Tew navigate our vitals and tew naw us off like plants; There ' s men that spend a lifetime hunting worms, jest like a goose, And tackin Latin names on ' em, and lettin ' em loose. (Clipping.) 161 THE CLINIC Calendar 1907-8 OCTOBER October 1.— School opens and cordial greetings and general hand-shakings are much in vogue among the upper classmen, while the freshmen try to familiarize themselves with the town, looking for suitable quarters and. incidentally, form partner- ships with some other freshman as room-mate.

October 8. —Dr. Preston calls on Morgan (soph) to describe the mechanism of respiration, and, failing to receive a satisfac- tory reply, tells him that " it would be better for him that a mill 162 THE CLINIC stone had been hanged about his neck and he had been thrown into the sea, than to come up on the day of judgment (examin- ation day) and be unable to describe that. " October 9. — This proved to be the day always looked forward to with much pleasure by the students and faculty— the tanking day.
