. HE task of gathering historical data has proven very difficult, as the "Scalpel" is
the first college publication of its nature issued by the University Medical Col-
lege, there was no complete collection of material.
The following had to be gleaned from many sources, and as no two persons ever
see things alike the differences had to be blended together into one harmonious whole.
Yet in order that the hundreds that have gone to every clime and country from her hon-
ored walls together with the present trustees, faculty, students, and future generations
of friends may have a b-rief yet authentic report of the inception and development of
U. M. C., a painstaking effort has been made to incorporate material only from the most
reliable sources. Worthy mention must be made of Drs. Tiffany, Davis, Snell, Logan,
Jackson, Allen, Punton and James, who are among the contributors to this article.
It was in the winter of 1880 a dozen or more years after the organization of Kan-
sas City's first medical college that the need of another school became apparent to a
number of doctors almost simultaneously. The course of instruction given at that time
by the already established school consisted only of two short years of five or six months
each. Both classes listened to the same lectures up to Christmas time, when it was said,
the juniors were sent home and seniors quizzed till March when they were graduated.
Kansas City was booming in those days and the little city at the mouth of the
Kaw was fast developing into the metropolis of the West. The rapidly growing city
on one hand and the very limited facilities for medical instruction on the other were
the most important factors th-at called for the organization of a new and better equipped
school of medicine. Several plans were inaugurated but before any of them could be
executed something broader, larger and better was presented till in the latter part of
the winter of 1880 a, new school was launched with eighteen of the most up-to-date doc-
tors of Kansas City as charter members. Among them were Drs. Tiffany, Davis, Snell,
J. W. Jackson, J. P. Jackson, Hereford, Lewis, O'Connor, Buxton, Campbell, Elston, Mil-
ler, Eggers, Adams, Berger, Jameson and Sawyer. Dr. Buxton is now in New Jersey,
Dr. Campbell in Joplin, Mo., Dr. Sawyer in Los Angeles, Cal. Drs. Tiffany and Davis,
the only founders who are yet as-sociated with the school, and Dr. Snell remain in Kan-
sas City. The rest having passed to the beyond. The above named gentlemen formed
themselves into a sort of stock company each one putting S800 into the treasury with
which the first building was erected, and an assessment of S5 per month each was made
to pay running expenses.

The corner stone was laid July 29, 1881, at Twelfth and
auspices of the Masonic Fraternity. The Rev. Dr. C. C. Wood, acting Grand Master for
K' P esident of the

. J. R. Snell the first dean. The new school was to be named
the HUniversity of Kansas City," having literary and other departments as well as medi-
cal. Thus it continued until 1888 when it became necessary in order to own and control
the property to change the charter to that of a medical school only. The school of law
and oratory were discontinued. The first building being sold, a lot at its present site,
Tenth and Campbell, was purchased and a part of the present building erected. The re-
organized school was christened, "University Medical College," the name being sug-
gested by one of the trustees who was a graduate -of University Medical College of New
York. The first set of officers after the reorganization were: President, J. W. Jackson,
Dean, James P. Jackson, Secretary, Emory Lamphear, and Treasurer, Geo. W. Davis.

The first course of instruction was given during the winter of 1881 and 1882. The
first class consisting of twenty-five students, and from the first day to the present time
the school has made a constant and material growth, until today she stands high among
medical colleges of the West, and well she may, for the more than twelve hundred men
that have gone from the h-alls of U. M. C. have proven a success. They have been up to
date at the time they have gone forth, they have been practical men, they have been
both scientists and artists, they have been an honor to the medical profession and to
their Alma Mater, they have been loyal to the school that sent them forth and their
success and loyalty have turned the attention of the young men contemplating a medi-
cal course to investigate and later to enter University Medical College. On the other
hand the men who have been supervising the school during its growth have endeavored
to keep the school abreast the times- in medical education. Of these, in addition to its
founders, only a few names can be mentioned for lack of space. Among them are J. M.
Allen, the second president, Dr. C. A. Ritter, the present treasurer, Dr. S. C. James,
dean from 1901 to 19017, Dr. Geo. Halley, professor of surgery, Dr. Jabez Jackson, the
present president, Dr. James E. Logan, the present dean, Dr. Walter M. Cross, present
curator, and Drs. Albert H. Cordier, J. M. Frankenburger and Jno. Punton trustees.
Their works will be mentioned elsewhere in this volume. Dr. C. F. Wainwright, formerly
dean, is now professor of clinical diagnosis in the Post Graduate School of New York.
Likewise Dr. S. G. Gant, formerly professor of rectal diseases, is now occupying the
same chair in the school mentioned above. Dr. Claude Hamilton, professor of chemis-
try, was elected city chemist, and owing to his enthusiasm in his special work was in
his own laboratory infected by the germs of phthisis, and died- as a result. Dr. Sam
Dennett, at one time lecturer on anesthetics, has climbed to the top in his specialty, be-
ing employed at fabulous prices by the best surgeons of New York, where he has amassed

ting U' M. C.. on an equal Stalidino with Oyh rs aio w en the standard was raised, put-
mation in one year nearly one h s er co eges of the American Medical Asso-
f undred men, who sought admission without sufficient
qualifications, were turned away. Likewise from year to year scores of undesirable ap-
plicants havelbeen refused admittance, but the enrollment has been well maintained by
drawing a more select class of students than could have been induced to enter a school
of a lower standard. U. M. C. has never been a "trailer" but always up with the times,
often taking the lead in the move for better medical education.
The first training school in the West for nurses was established by the trustees
of U. M. C., likewise the first obstetrical clinic in the state was established in 1890 by
Dr. L. A. Berger, then professor of obstetrics. Again she was the first school in this
section of the country, with one exception, to extend the length of each year's work to
eight months. All of this growth and development has not come without much toil and
sacrifice, many times 'strife and contention almost to the point of disruption, but today
harmony and peace prevails and the institution stands as a monument to the men who
have striven, toiled and sacrificed.
The good accomplished for suffering humanity both directly and indirectly by
University Medical College and University Hospital can never be estimated, and of the
future a brighter horizon never dawned. With proper management she should receive
endowment sufficient to place her on a par with the best medical schools of the land.
Long life and prosperity to old U. M. C.
TI-IE THREE FOUNDERS NOW REMAINING IN KANSAS CITY.
FLAVEL B. TIFFANY J. R. SNELL GEO. W. DAVIS
JABEZ N. JACKSON, A.M., M.D
JABEZ N. JACKSQN, A.lXl., M11
Professor of P1'Z.lZCZ'17ICS and Pl'GCZLl'CC of Sz11'gc1'y cmd Clilzical Szz1'ge1'y.
lntimately connected with the history of U. M. C., has been that of the Jack-
son family. Among the founders were Dr. J. W. Jackson and his brother, P.
jackson. For years they worked to make the institution a success, and as their
names passed into history their son and nephew, Jabez N. jackson, came into
prominence as one of our leading physicians and surgeons. Dr. jackson obtained
his bachelor degree in 1889 and his master degree in ,QO, from Central College,
Fayette, Mo., where he was well known as an enthusiastic leader among the
Graduating from U. M. C. in 1891, he accepted a position as Demonstrator of
Anatomy. In 1895 he was given the Chair of Anatomy, which he filled for the
succeeding three years with his own characteristic ability. From 1898 to 1900 he
held the Chair of Surgical Anatomy and Adjunct Professor of Surgery.
Since that time he has very ably filled the Chair of Principles and Practice
of Surgery and Clinical Surgery. Since 1892 Dr. Jackson has been a member of
the board of trustees and for the present year has served as president of the

cieties, American Medical .Association and Medical Association of the Southwest.
JAMES E. LOGAN, M.D., LL. D
JAMES E. LOGAN, MD., LL.D.
'Professor of Diseases of Nose, Throat and Clinical Otology.
There is probably no position on the faculty of a medical college so fraught
with trials as that of Dean. To him must the student body look for all favors
Mediator is he between student and faculty. He it is who must greet the incom-
ing Freshmen and bid farewell to the Senior. His is to guard for four years the
student, thus protecting and building up the school. Responsible to the trustees
as well as to the public is the Dean, and tactful indeed is he who, as sponsor for
his college, can retain the respect and even the affections of every student, and at
the same time always keep in view first and foremost the welfare of the institu-
tion. Such, however, has been the history of many past incumbents of the office.
to whom the student body look back as the students' friend, and lacking in none
of these qualities is our present Dean, Dr. james E. Logan. Dr. Logan received
his preliminary education in the Universities of Kentucky and Missouri, obtaining
tlie degree of LL. D. from the State Normal of Arkansas. In 1883 he graduated
as valedictorian of his class at the University Medical College. The year 1883-84
was spent in Relleview Medical College, New York.
Five years following this were spent as Professor of Physiology in the Uni-
versity Medical College. During the years 1890-1908 Dr. Logan held the Chair
of Laryngology, Rhinology and Qtology, having also filled the position of Pres-
ident from 1899 to 1907, being elected to the present office in the spring of 1907.
As a student Dr. Logan was a member of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity and XE
Society, having since been elected an honorary member of CID B II. Since entering
the practice of medicine he has become identified with the Kansas City Academy
of Medicine, Jackson County Medical Society, Missouri State Medical Society,
American Congress of Physiology and Surgery, American Laryngological, Rhin-
-ological and Otological Society, and the American Otological Society.
DR. FLAVEL B. TIFFANY, A.M., M.D.
Professor of Opflzalmology and Otoiogy.
Flavel B. Tiffany was born in Cicero, N. Y., in the days When the school
systems of our land were yet undeveloped.
He was one of the first graduates of the State University of Minnesota and
entering Ann Arbor from there, graduated in medicine in 1874. Since that time
Dr. Tiffany has spent much time in the schools and clinics of London, Berlin,
Paris and Vienna, specializing on Qpthalmology, Qtology and Laryngology. After
locating in Kansas City in 1878, he aided in founding the University Medical Col-
lege, in which he has ably filled the Chair of Opthalmology and Qtology to the
The doctor is the author of "Diseases of the Eye," "Anomalies of Refraction
and Accommodationi' and 6'The Qculist's Record Booksf, He has also been an
active member of the State Medical Societies of Missouri, Kansas and Qklahoma:
the American Medical Association, International Medical Congress, the American
Microscopical Society, etc.
At present time Dr. Tiffany is one of three of the founders of the college
living in Kansas City.
JOHN PUNTON, M.D.
Professor' of Nertfozzs and ilfeizml Diseases.
Perhaps the only man on our faculty who can claim foreign parentage as
well as foreign birth, is one of our trustees, Dr. John Punton.
Dr. Punton received his early education in England. Coming to America,
he graduated from Miami Medical College, Cincinnati O., and from Ann Arbor.
D n n u . 1 45 4 , u I .
Continuing his studies with all the thoroughness of a tvbical Englishman, he took
b . b - 6 1
post graduate work in New York and Europe.
Locating in Kansas City in the early years of her history as a center of
medical learning, he became connected with University Medical College as Pro-
fessor of Nervous and Mental Diseases, also teaching Clinical Neurology at the
Kansas City General flospital.
:Xs a teacher he has always held the esteem and admiration of his students
and among the trustees his work has always had an important place. He is one
of our oldest honorary PES and is also honorary member of CID B H, Neurologist to
Frisco and Kansas City Southern Railway Hospitals and has always been closely
allied with the American Neurological Society tLimitedj, American Psychological
Society CLimitedj, ,Tackson County and Missouri State Medical Societies and
Academy of Medicine.
G. W. DAVIS, M.D. 1
I Professor of GC7ZI'f0-Ul'Z"llGl'3' cmd V61ZC7'6UZ Diseases.
Une other of our founders still holds position on the board of trustees. Dr.
Davis is a graduate of University of Vermont and Ft. Edwards Classical Insti-
tute in 1876. He took post graduate work in New York Polyclinic and New York
Hosiptal Service. Dr. Davis has had a wide variety of experience in the practice
of medicine. First as a general practitioner, next as a dermatologist and as a
specialist on Genito-Urinary diseases, he has demonstrated his ability in the heal-
ing art. In 1882 he joined with several fellow practitioners and by their united
efforts, they built up the college of which we are so proud. For the past 27 years
he has engaged especially in treatment of Genito-Urinary diseases, which he now
teaches in this college, and is today connected with the principal medical societies
of this section of the country.
SAMUEL C. JAMES, M.D.
Professor of P1'Iillc'I'f7fCS and Pl'ClLNfl.CC of ilJcvdz'cz'710 and CfZ"1'l,l'CGl ll'fCC7TI'C'li7IC'.
Mihile the founders of our school were struggling to build up an institution
which should stand foremost in the ranks of medical colleges of the Middle VVest,
Destiny was preparing one who, coming to us later, was to hold for six years the
reins of government and, by his tactful and firm rule, guide through the second
great crisis of her history this child of their labors. Dr. james graduated from
Rush Medical College in 1882. Locating in Kansas City, his superior qualities
were soon recognized by all, and he was given the Chair of Principles and Practice
of Medicine of the ".Voman's Medical College. Later he accepted the same chair
in U. M. C., which position he now fills.
Since coming to Kansas City he has served as president of the Association
of American Medical Colleges, chairman of medical section Southwest Medical
Association, dean of U. M. C., Igor-1907. He is also a member of the EE society,
fb B II fraternity, State and Providential Boards of North America, Missouri
Valley, Missouri State and Jackson County Medical Societiesg fellow of Kansas
City Academy of Medicine and is an ex-member of the State Board of Health.
C. A. RITTER, M.D., TREASURER.
Professor of Obsfcfzics.
Graduate of Indiana Medical College, 1877. Post graduate New York and
Chicago. Such has been the preparation for the practice of medicine of our treas-
urer, Dr. Ritter. Thorough in preparation as he was, he has been no less efficient
in his work. Taking up Obstetrics as a specialty, he was given the chair of clin-
ical obstetrics on the faculty of U. M. C., and for the last ten years the graduates
of the school have shown in their successful practice the indelible seal of Dr. Rita--
ter's tireless energy.
As a student he was an active member of the Phi Delta Theta, being later
elected to honorary membership in Aesculapian Society and CID B TI.
"VVatchdog of the Treasury" would be expressive of his work as a trustee, for
while no one could be more eager for up-to-date equipment, he has by his Won-
derful financial capabilities protected the institution in every case and bor l
U ue ier
successfully through every crisis.
As a member of the profession the doctor is identified with the Jackson
County and Missouri State Medical Societies Academy of Medicine, A '
X. A merican

Professor of P1'aCf1'c'c of SIZl'g'CI'5' and Clizzifal Szzrgcry.
Not of foreign birth, but from among a people with as marked characteristics
of honor and energy, comes another member of the lloard of Trustees. Dr. Cor-
dier was born in Kentucky in 1859. Graduating from Medical Department of
University of Louisville in 1881, he spent three succeeding years in Pelleview
Hospital Medical College, where he graduated in 1884, after which he served an
interneship there. Cfoing to Philadelphia he spent one year with Dr. -loseph Price
in Clinical and Abdominal surgery. After practicing several years in McPherson,
Kas., he located in Kansas City in 1892, teaching Abdominal Surgery in Kansas
City Medical College for six years, being elected to the same chair in U. M. C. in
1899. ln IQO4 Dr. Cordier accepted the Chair of Principles and Practice of Sur-

WALTER M. CRQSS, A.B., MD., CURATQR.
P1'0fc'ss0r of Chem1'st1'y.
NVell imprinted on the memory of every student is his first meeting with
Dr. Cross, the curator of University Medical College. The man, known to all for
his open, frank expression of disapproval for your misdoings, and quick approval
of good, earnest Work, has for many years held the utmost respect of the student
body, as Well as their sincere affection, by his evident love of fairness, and his
appreciation of true, self-reliant effort.
Guardian of the private interests of the school is at all times a position full
of difficulties, and here has Dr. Cross shown his true worth.
He graduated from K. U., obtaining his A B degree there in ISQQ Enterin

J. M. ALLEN, AM., MD., LL.D.,
Professor of Diseases of the Abdonzevz and
Teacher in Dispezzsory Clfifzrzfe.
So intimately has Dr. Allen been asso-
ciated with the college for the last twenty-
five years that he almost seems to be the
father of the school. Joining the founders
of the college, he put his shoulder to the
wheel and aided in bringing the institution
through many crises in the early history
when difficulties beset them on every side.
Dr. Allen obtained his literary degrees at
Vlfilliam Jewell College and his M.D. at
St. Louis Medical in 1854. For four years
previous to foundingof U. M. C. he taught
Practice of Medicine at M. S. U., after
which he accepted the chair of Clinical

the American Medical Association, having joined in 1858 at Louisville, Ky.
GEORGE HALLEY, M.D.
Professor of Practice of Surgery and Clin-
Dr. Halley graduated from the Univer-
sity of Toronto, Canada, in 1869. Coming
to Kansas City, he accepted the Chair of
Anatomy in the Kansas City Medical Col-
lege, where he taught, until 1890, when he 1
became identified with U. M. C., taking
the chair that he now holds. Dr. Halley is
chief surgeon for the Q. 81 K. C. Rail- P'
way and consulting surgeon of the A. T. Sz
S. F. Railway. He is a member of the
Jackson County and Missouri State Med-
ical Societies, the Southwest Surgical and
Gynecological Society and the Association

CLAY S. MERRIMAN, M. D.
Professor of Diseases of Clz.z'Ia'1'c1rz.
Dr. Merriman has also the pleasure of
returning to his alma mater, which he left in
1887. However, he comes now, not as a
child seeking knowledge, but to teach to
other children the diseases of children and
since 1888 has the chair of pediatrics been
ably filled by him. As a student he engaged
in active work with the 1E Society. Since
his return as an instructor he has been
elected to honorary membership in db B II
Fraternity. He is also a member of
Alumni Association, as well as being affil-
iated yvith Jackson County, Missouri State,

I. PHILLIP KANOKY, MD.
.Professor of Deruzcztology.
Fortunate indeed is the student of U. M.
C. in having such an instructor as Ol. Phillip
Kanoky to guide him through the mazes of
dermatology, where so many pitfalls are
laid for the unsuspecting practitioner. Dr.
Kanoky is a graduate of Kansas City Med-
ical College, Kansas City, Mo., in class of
'81, and received post graduate training in
Vienna, leaving there in 1883. He is a mem-

T has occuiied to me many times as iather singular that a U M C O1 iduate Wher
I ever found is a Htopnotcherng he not only does Well financially, but he is respect-
ed and honored by both the piofession and laity in his community. I have met
them and heard of them far and near and this is so universally the case that I have
searched for some logical reason Why it is true. I believe there are three factors that
bring about this ultimate perfection in our graduates.
First-The high standard that our college has always maintained has giV911 US
an excellent quality of young men for students. Second-Each student becomes so thor-
oughly imbued with the enthusiasm and college spirit, which has alway-s been a promi-
nent feature in U. M. C., that life presents an entirely different and more beautiful pic-
ture to him. Third-The fathers of the University Medical College realized early in the
career of the institution that one of the most important adjuncts to a medical education
was a thorough clinical training. It has worked out so well that it has been improved
'der that from 3,500 to 4,000 pa-
from year to year. Is it not remarkable when we consi ' l
' ' f the Senior and Junior classes annually, exhibiting
tients come under the observation o
cel found in each man's
frequently conditions and diseases so rare that they are scar y
' f' ' tl under an able instructor that he will
lifetime, yet impressing the student suf icien y
d'l recognize it if he sees it again.

In our out door clinic it is the usual plan to assign three stu-dents to each depart-
ment, where under the instruction of a professor they are obliged to examine, diagnose
and treat the case, this gives them more experience in a systematic manner than they
would receive in many years of private office practice.
The Obstetrical department has quarters in the college troom, beds and tele-
' t ' lls for
phonej, where three students are constantly on hand day and night to answer ca
this purpose. Each student must be in attendance at five confineinents before he be-
comes eligible for graduation. This department is also in charge of the Florence Crit-
tenden Home, the only charitable lying-in in-stitution in our city.
The surgical out door clinic cares for about eight min-or surgical cases daily in
the college and on 'Wednesday general surgical clinic is held in the amphitheater where
from one to four major operations are performed,
In the medical clinic from twelve to fifteen cases are treated daily. Thi-s depart-
ment has two general clinics each week in o
, diseases are treated on an average, fifteen
ne of the college amph-itheaters.
In the department of Genito Urinary
patients daily the year aroun
The Gynecoloffical clinic treats from eight to fifteen patient daily and has one
Gynecological surgical clinic weekly, where from one to three major operations are per-
d, with one general Genito Urinary Surgery clinic weekly.
ln the Clinical department for nose and throat diseases, eight to ten cases are

mug a Hhgairian Shnnlh IGP illlnral
BY JOHN PUNTON, M. D., Professor Nervous and Mental Diseases,
University Medical College.
The subject "Why a Physician Should Be Moral,', is one fraught with serious im-
port to every medical practitioner. Viewed from any standpoint the physician cannot
fail to recognize if not acknowledge his moral needs and obligations both to himself
and his clientele. Indeed, so necessary and fundamental to the best life and character
of the physician are the virtues of morality that these should not only form the basic
principles, but constitute the very foundation upon which his practice and conduct is
reared. e 4
Even f'Hippocrates" the Father of Medicine in his early day recognized this neces-
sity for physicians, hence the "Hippocratic Oath" is based upon moral probity. While
the ancient custom of requiring this to be read and approved by every recent graduate
in medicine is now seldom administered, yet who can deny that its essential moral prin-
ciples are as worthy of observance today as they ever were in the practice of medicine.
To the aspiring mind, however, of the modern recent medical graduate, life ordinarily
presents a beautiful panorama of hopeful possibilities which conforms to his ideal or
conception of what is best in life for him.
Every physician therefore, whether he is conscious of it or not has an ideal, base
or lofty which moulds his professional life and character and thus shapes his destiny.
Indeed, every man associates his life with some end or ends, the attainment of which
seem to him most desirable. All important, however, for the physician is the choice
of this primal ideal or that which he in his inmost heart loves and strives to attain, for
this largely determines what he is to become as a medical man.
Standing thus upon the threshold of his professional career, the young physician
in his restless desire to succeed becomes enthused with the power and influence of
fame, pleasure, position and wealth, all of which may appeal to him with such an irre-
sistible claim, or clad in forms so beautiful and attractive that at a time of life when
his experience is very limited, his faith untried and his opinions exceedingly vacillating
as to their relative value it is easy for him to mistake these allurements for the best
things in life.
The full possession, however, of all of these agents have so often disappointed the
liopes blasted, the possibilities that such factors prove to be serious obstacles of failure
to any physician. Hence, in spite of their intrinsic value they utterly fail in themselves
to furnish the highest and truest elements of success to the medical practitioner. More-
-over, the future of the young physician even when favored with such powerful acquisi
tions or illumined with the brightest hopes and most flattering prospects ever attend
ed in its incipiency with more or less misgiving and uncertainty. Hence, the question
which has been asked all through the ages by the recent graduate of medicine and never
'tAm I to be a success or a failure?" ls fraught with se-
more earnestly than today, viz.:
In discussing thi-s question in a recent address a prominent internist claims that
for success in the practice of medicine four factors are absolutely essential, viz.: First,
appropriate preparation in medical technical studies, second, power to recognize and
t themselves' third the possession of the psycho-
seize opportunities when they presen , , l
logic insight, and fourth, zealous enthusiasm and persistency in medical work. WVh1le
undoubtedly these are essential, yet, in my judgment, a physician may DOSSGSS all of
these and yet prove a sad failure. Any set of rules or theory to govern the life and char-
acter of a physician which ignores his moral obligations or dependence and allegiancfe
to God is in my judgment a known failure. Indeed, no man, whether he be statesman.
lawyer, business man or doctor, can succeed in the highest and truest sense in this life
without the help of God. A life without God, is one without hope and no' physician can
ever hope to succeed if he ignores his moral obligations to himself, to his fellow man
Lincluding his patientsj and to his God. Thus Divine Law, not only requires but de-
mands that the physician apply to professional life and conduct the spirit and purpose of
the Golden Rule, which has for its basis the virtue of moral probity.
I would, therefore, add another factor to the list already enumerated to govern
the life and conduct of the physician, viz., HA fixed and definite religious purpose,"
which means to the physician a clean, moral exemplary, conscientious ethical life. No
physician can well afford to leave this rule or principle out of his life and conduct.
Moreover, the rapid advance of medical science increases the moral obligation of the
physician by rendering it necessary that the modern medical practitioner add to his
equipment new features of education. He must therefore, not only study laboratory
methods while at college but must bring this newer knowledge into use by introducing
it into his practice and thus become a practical bacteriologist and chemist. This pre-
supposes that he supply himself with a microscope and a complete miniature bacteriolog-
ical and chemical laboratory outfit for actual use in his daily practice.
Thus he will be scientifically prepared to examine the urine, the feces, the blood,
the sputum and other normal and pathological products to aid him in his diagnosis, prog-
nosis and treatment of disease. In addition the modern medical practitioner must also
be a student of psychology. This will bring him in touch with the various normal and
' ' d f
abnormal conditions of mind and human consciousness as well as the various cree s 0
common mode of false reason-ing of which Dowieisrn, Spiritualism, Christian Science,
Faith Cures and other forms of religious and medical fanaticism are notable examples
and whose so-called marvellous results in healing the sick are all based on mental sug-
gestion or psycho-therapeutics.
The conscientious physician must also of necessity be a student of sociology and
thus become identified with all the leading Social, political, religious and medico-legal
movements of reform which have for their specific object the betterment of mankind.
This will associate him with the philanthropist, statesman, politician, lawyer and preach-
er, besides those who are now grappling with the vital civic problems and those high
class Christian men and women who are devoting their lives to help save those who by
virtue of their poverty, dissipation, ill-health, bad habits and the misfortunes of heredity
are forced to- live in unsanitary and evil environments like the slums and tenement dis-
tricts of our large cities.
Thus the educated physician to fill his highest and most useful purpose must of
necessity be a liberal minded man, a moral man, a man of many parts, broad gauged,
one that is capable and competent to recognize the social, political, religious and medi-
cal needs of the poor and afflicted as well as those more favorably situated and by his
superior educational advantages and moral qualities be willing and able to aid in the so-
lutlont Of the Vital Problems associated with the physical, moral and religious health of
mankind. He must, therefore, make medical science of use to the community and thug
Eilaxlge the scope of his duties by including the teaching of the principles of moral
This, however, can be done but imperfectly if the physician does not remember
that he should be as much concerned with the immoral conditions and circumstances
which surround humanity as the diseases to which humanity is heir and thus aid in ex-
tending the conventional conception of morality which should come to mean healthy
living, healthy thinking and healthy acting. A system of moral and religious health
should therefore become the grand mission of medical science to reveal through the in-
strumentality of the morally trained and educated scientific physician, for moral health
is paramount to public health, while their wise correlation contributes to the highest
and the best good of mankind.
Such a programme sufficiently explains the reason why a physician should be
moral for in the midst of the pathetic scenes and tragedies of life which he is daily
called upon to witness neither the uneducated, immoral or irreligious physician can be
of help., They who are to be the leaders in medical science must therefore embody
in their lives all the best features of cultured education, while morality, supported by
the virtue of religion, must of necessity form its chief cornerstone.
Such a life as this I commend and covet for each student of the University Medi-

BY FLAVEL B. TIFFANY, A.M., M.D.
EARS ago, when we first started out in the profession, it was thought that one could
not obtain the best advantages in the study of medicine without going to Europe
and at that time there was reason for his belief. Our institutions were yet young
and limited in their advantages. There was scarcely such a thing as post grduate course
in America. There was n-ot even a graded course of medicine. The curriculum was the
same for the junior and the senior. Those days there were no freshmen or sophomores.
Two semesters was all that were required in this country for the completion of a medi-
But inf the old institutions of Europe the requirements were far greater. They
gave special attention to practical medicine, while we were satisfied with the didactic.
At the time I first started out for post graduate work, I was unable to find any
is side of the Atlantic, and was compelled' to go to the European
clinics. This was some thirty years ago. I was especially interested in the study of
Ophthalmology, Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology, and there it was that I found grand
opportunities for the prosecutions of these studies. At 'flVIoorfields," London, I found
more than a dozen prominent Ophthalmologists at work treating from three to five hun-
dred patients a day. Among these men were Drs. Wells, Bowman, Pritchett, Lawson.
Hutchinson, Wordsworth and Nettleship. All enthusiasts and authorities in this special
department of medicine.
In another part of London, "Sou quar ,
found the great authorities, Morrel, McKenzie and Lenox Brown. Here again we were
of affections of the nasal passages, pharynx and
opportunities on th
l S e" at the nose and throat hospital, we
able to see and study hundred-s of cases
lyrynx. It was here we first learned the use of the laryngoscope, to view and to treat
the wonderfully interesting organs of voice. Part of our time we devoted to visiting
the hospitals of tuberculosis and part of those of skin diseases. However, being more
interested in the study of Ophthalmology and Otology, we naturally sought these clinics.
After spending some months in the great metropolis, we went on to Paris, where we
found such men as Pannas, Landolt, De Wecker, Abidie, Meyer and Galezowski, eminent
workers in Ophthalmology. A few months were spent with these gentlemen and then we
go on to Berlin, where the winter is passed working in the clinics of Drs. Herschberg,
Swheigger and Schoeler. In the spring we go to Vienna, stopping for a few days with
the famous Ophthalmologist, Prof. Alfred C. Graeffe at Halle, and Dr. Ooccius at Leip-
zig. At Prague, we found Professor Sattler, who frequently operates upon twelve or
more cataracts a day. The two mornings I was with him, he made ten operations.
At Vienna, Professor Arlts has retired and Fuchs and Stellwag are taking his
place. Here one finds perhaps the best opportunity in all departments of medicine for
post graduate work. F-or here they make a specialty of teaching, g-iving special instruc-
tions in the various departments-all under one roof in the great university. It was
here that I first made some observations in comparative ophthalrnology, viewing the
fundus of many of the lower animals such as that of the snake, the frog, the chicken, the
rabbit and the monkey. Most of these men have not only a very large experience, but
many of them are authors of the subject which they teach. Vienna is an especially
good place to study Otology. Here it was that we found Professor Politzer, who stands
preeminently or did at that time at the head of Otology. He is recognized as the peer of
all authors on this s-ubje-ct. His book contains eight hundred pages on this little organ
of hearing. Vienna with Professor Politzer is und-oubtedly the best place in the world
to study affections of the ear.
In those days there were no such advantages to be found in America, but of re-
cent years it is altogether different. There is no country in the world or in any period
of history where medicine has made the tremendous progress as has been made by the
Americans in the last two decades. The American doctor of today is no longer looked
upon in Europe or any part of the world as being unlettered and improficient but he is
respected and held in high esteem as a man of authority and erudition and there is no
longer any dearth of clinical advantages in America.
The post graduate advantages of Philadelphia and New York will compare very
favorably with any of those in Europe. No one need go across the water for these ad-
vantages. The day is already at hand when many European students come to our
shores for the prosecution of clinical work as did we of former times to their country.
On the other hand there are many things one may gather in Europe that can not be
gotten in America. One sees a greater variety of diseases many of which are not often
if ever seen in our country. Besides it is' an advantage to make comparisons between
the managing and treating of the different cases. And if a person is desirous of famil-
iarizing himself and gaining other languages such as French and German, of course, it is
-of necessity that he go among the people where he is obliged to hear and speak their
language. While the advantages of America have greatly improved yet those of Europe
have not deteriorated.

A Hiatt in the Alma illtlater T
BY LLOYD A. CLARY, B. S., M. D., '06.
T looks familiar, yet what a change! I had j0UFIlGyed back to the old Alma Mater,
for the longing to pay my respects againlto these dear old walls and halls was
+1 strong within me. It was here we used to fight, rowdy, dissect, Josh clinics, cuss
medicine in all its phases, talk on profound scientific subjects with all the wonderful wis-
dom of the Medical College undergraduate, and do all the various stunts done by that
happy, downtrodden, freest and most irrepressible "bunch"-medical students. In these halls
we had spent some of the happiest, most carefree days of our lives, though at the time
our responsibilities seemed wonderfully grave. We were a part of that fine company
called "medics"-a company ever changing, yet always the same.
As a f'Freshiei' how awed we were as we gazed at the dignified Senior, and with
what wonder and reverence we listened to our profe-ssors as they revealed new truths to
us and delved into mysteries of which we had never dreamed! With what pride We
yelled for our football heroes, and with what despair we gazed upon the pages of our
Gray! It seemed to us the year would never end, and the road to graduation looked
even longer than some of the names we had to learn. Friendships this year were of
more or less fleeting variety, thought we came to know some very good fellows, and even
had a speaking acquaintance with a couple of upper class men.
As 'tSophs" we looked down with infinite scorn on the poor Freshman, and pitied
and bullied and fought him to our heart's content. A small amount -of dignity seemed
to be trying to settle on our shoulders, and we did our best to give it a proper resting
place. The janitor was not nearly so important a per-sonage, and our respect for the
property of the school diminished so rapidly that we now broke up seats without hesita-
tion. Yet our patriotism grew with every day, and we willingly marched miles across
town to Hscrapi' our rival school and break the windows out of their buildings. The
policeman was no longer a representative of law and order to be feared, he was merely
a cop to be shunned and dodged. We were more separated into cliques and crowds:
each man being "chummy" with one or two of his fellows. The ties that bound us to
each other and to our school were being welded more firmly and we were fast learning
to lo th ld ' ' ff " ' H
ve e o building even though we tore it up so often.
The summer passed and as Juniors we returned. The change was great. We now
took up more interesting studies and began to see the practical side of many facts we
had previously learned or made a bluff at k
operations and attend some of the clinics with the Seniors. Why, we even pounded a few
chests and 'fassistedu the doctor in charge of the internal medicine clinic in arriving at
his diagnosis-that is, we looked wise and agreed perfectly in all he said. The instru-
ment house was honored with numerous orders for Obstetric bags, and almost any day
some enterprising Junior could be seen rushing down the street, with one of the afore-
said bags, on his way to see an imaginary case. Toward the latter part of the year we
rose to heights of bliss sublime. The Seniors were so busy they could not attend to all
the 'tclinicsj' so we were sent out occasionally in squads of two or three to look at some
siefl1zt11iig'ger, hand big words back and forth between us, give the poor cuss some do e

Glorious were the days of our Junior year, and with regret we saw the close
of the term and bade good-bye to our 'tpalsft
S i rs! Lord, how our heads went up and our bosoms swelled out as we strutted
around those first few weeks and tried to realize that we were really Hit!" f'Who are
those fellows over there?y' said a stranger. "Freshies, I guess, I don't know them," we
answered, and with what a world of dignity and contempt we said it! I remember one
day during the opening weeks of this important year-important because we were Sen-
iors-a fellow came up to me and, after a few remarks on the weather, said he had just
entered in the Sophomore year, and asked me if I were a Soph or Freshman. I imagine
I 0' f foot taller and I could swear the fellow trembled with awe when I pronounced
the one word "Senior," I could find no excuse why that fellow should continue to live,
and never did like him after that.
As the year wore slowly by we were a busy bunch. Our "private practice" was
amazingly large-that is apparently-and we had to give much time, care and attention
to clinics. The early morning hour-s found us in class rooms or hospital, and the mid-
night hour found us digging away in our studies. After the holidays the days seemed
fairly to fly, and finals and State Board and commencement were subjects for much
study and more talk. "Shall we wear gowns or dress suits?" t'Where are you going to
locate?" 'tVVonder what old R-- is going to hand us in his next exam." And so it
went, and all too soon commencement day was at hand. NVill we ever forget those good
fellows of the Senior year? those last few weeks? the day we said, "Good-bye?" How
happy we were when all was over, and yet with what a feeling of sadness we looked for
the last time on the old school and the old boys! Bidding good-bye to those old hall-s
seemed like saying farewell forever to an old friend.
And now we're back again. There's the old stairway we used to climb day after
day, and there's the corner that was our favorite lighting place during the scuffle. How
hollow the echo of our footsteps as we wander around and look in vain for a familiar face
and listen for a well known voice! No songs and shouts and laughter! Nothing but
stillness! There's the old 'tpit," and there the old seats. As we close our eyes and try
io conjure up the past we can almost see our favorite professor standing down there
talking to the boys. It must be a delusion, yet there's HRed" over there pestering the
man in front of him, and just beyond him we surely see old "Shorty" making the fel-
lows about him laugh at his funny drawings. And over here's the i'Parson" all atten-
tion and setting a lovely example of all a t'Stugent" should be, but isn't. But it's all a
dream. O! what wouldn't we give if it could be true, and all the fellows could be back
on these benches again as of old! But no, it cannot be, and we turn away with a sigh
and see, standing near, the old janitor who has come in during our revery. At least he
hasn't changed, and we rush up to him and grab his hand and shake it heartily. VVe
chat a moment but our conversation is brief, for we are now longing to get away and
shake off this pleasurable-sad feeling.
At the door we meet a youngster coming in with his Obstetric bag. He's on the
staff of course, and we talk together like school boys for a few minutes.
Then with the indescribable feeling of gladness because we
cause of the thoughts and memories the deserted halls bring forth, we turn our backs
upon the venerable shack and say, 'Good-bye, old Alma Mater-Good-bye."

is noticeably lacking in one element the atmosphere of college life From the
- H- viewpoint of the departing Senior, who has lived through and enjoyed four years
of College life there cannot be too many happy memories of College days. The old uni-
versities are distinguished by the loyalty of their alumni, bound by the sweet memories
which cling around their stately halls. So, although we have nought but glorious rec-
O the student coming from the college of mixed departments the professional school
ollections of our own school days, let us see how we can inject more of the collegiate
life into the future U. M. C. undergraduate.
We have too few college social affairs. The daily monotony of class work should
be relieved now and then by entertainments in which the whole student body can par-
ticipate. The fraternities furnish a certain amount of social gathering for a limited num-
ber. The professors occasionally give a reception to one class, but the general body of
students is neglected. That portion of their enjoyment which more firmly binds their
hearts to their Alma Mater is sadly missed. This can largely be overcome by the ad-
vent of more college organizations. With the talent which has always been present in
our school, there is no reason why we should not have an excellent glee club. A root-
ers' club would add more interest to our football games. A "Deutsche club" for pur-
pose of studying German would afford much entertainment and be of future medical ad-
vantage. Then we need more class affairs such as the ancient 'Junior prom." An annual
senior class day could also be recognized. Part of the exercises would consist in pre-
sentation of class picture to the school, the presentation by Juniors of a humorous class
gift with acceptance by a senior representative. These numerous 'organizations would
reach and connect every student with some activity outside the class room and makc
him more a part and parcel of his college.
Another field of endeavor should be more athletic work. Very few students can
be represented on a football team, but if basket ball, track team, tennis and baseball are
added, almost every undergraduate is included in some form of athletic work. The new
Y. M. C. A. building is but a short distance from the college, and it is probable that ar-
rangements could be made to accommodate the student body at reasonable rates there.
Then we could have a basket ball team to represent the school in games with the state
universities, Baker, William Jewell and other institutions. Our athletic association
should be as well organized as any school society, and take charge of every branch of
athletics. Instead of the few scattered class baseball games the association should ar-
range a regular schedule for the class championship. With the present length of school
year a varsity baseball team could be well promoted. '
A more earnest college spirit is productive of the university atmosphere so much
desired. Here's a cheer for the rah! rah! boy, his flaming colors and raucous voice.
Get in and enthusiastically support every student activity. Lets have more class rival-
ry. An annual Freshman-Sophomore pole fight should occur early each year regulated
by a committee of Juniors. Let's excuse our professors for one day each year, and hold
a jubilee such as the Annual Ho-bo Convention which occurs every year at our state uni-
versity. On this day all the students dress up as hoboes, have a street parade, disperse
soliciting handouts at back doors, and hold a humorous assembly at night. Such cus-
toms and traditions furnish a ready fund of reminiscences for the future.
Every student and graduating member of this school desires to point with pride
to his attendance at U. M. C., and by every legitimate means to make this school a
drawing card for future -students. So with more improvement in the social and athletic
departments of college activity, let us overflow with the college spirit and surround our
undergraduates with the true university atmosphere, which will bind them loyal and
steadfast to their Alma Mater. FRED, B, KYGER, '08,

BY J. PHILLIP KANOKY, Professor of Dermatology.
F all the multitudinous demands made upon the time and sympathies of the physi-
cian none is more important than that which calls on him to exercise his in-
dividual right as a voter and a responsible member of the community in which
he strenuous life which usually falls to the lot of the practitioner of
medicine the duties of citizenship are liable to be neglected and the privilege of the
free-born American relegated to the office seeker and his horde of followers.
People generally, and the physician in particular have long labored under the im-
pression that the only duty that legitimately belonged to the medical man was the one
performed as an attendant to the sick, that whenever the physician departed from this
well established rule and took part in any controversy that was n-ot strictly in line with
his professional duties, he lowered the dignity of the profession of which he was a mem-
he resides. In t
This erroneous idea has existed so long that it has become an accepted factor
in governing the daily conduct of the physician. Nevertheless, I believe that such a
conclusion is erroneous, and detrimental, not only to the physician, but likewise to the
community in which he dwells.
The physician is expected to be a learned man-a man who, by training and ex-
perience, is far above the average in mentality and discriminative judgment. That be-
ing the case, he is far better fitted to perform the duties of a citizen than those people
less favored. For that very reason the physician would be a safe man in politics. Be-
cause of his judgment, his knowledge and his integrity, none are better fitted to deter-
mine the questions that confront the officers of a municipality. Furthermore, by tak-
ing part in the municipal government of his city, he places himself in a position where
he may demand to a far greater extent the respect of the professonal politician, which
is not now accorded the physician.
I believe the doctor should have a voice in state legislation, and further, that the
government of all eleemosynary institutions, hospitals and asylum-s, should be placed
absolutely under the jurisdiction of the medical profession. As it is now, these insti-
tutions are under the control of politicians, who in many instances have no idea of the
inmates' requirements, and who probably care less. All of these institutions should be
removed from without the influence of the professional politician. To make this possi-
ble, it is necessary that physicians should be elected as representatives of our state gov-
ernment, that they may give their advice and counsel in the procurement of judicious leg-
islation for the protection of the people. It has been my experience, on several occa-
sions, in the legislative halls of our state, at Jefferson City, to learn the insignificant
influence wielded by the medical profession. Not even the most ordinary and neces-
sary laws for the protection of the human family can be passed without solicitation of
the influence of the professional politician. It is not only essentional that the medical
profession should be a factor in politics, but also that it should act unitedly on all mat-
ters concerning its own welfare. As an organization, the influence of the medical pro-
fession is practically nil, yet there is no man who has more influence, as an individual
in his community, than the doctor. It is -strongly urged that all medical organizations
have committees composed of their town members, whose duty it should be to watch
all legislation, and whenever possible and consistent with the welfare of the community,
urge the selection of a physician as a representative of our state legislature.
Let the physician be something more than a mere instrument of convenience,
utilized only when wanted and seriously wanted, for, as has been said, he is a man of
education and training to peculiarly fit him for the exercise of good judgment, and make
him a capable and competent adviser in matters appertaining to legislative requirements
for the protection of the health of the people of a state, and the care of its sick and in-
It is only as a united power that the profession can demand the political recog-
nition for which it must now humbly petition.

, HE dangers which attend professional life are many. The road to honor and
success has many pitfalls which are at times difficult to see and avoid. At the
of very beginning of his career, the young professional man should definitely settle
a, few things, such as what is to be his chief aim, and what his standard of success. The
old idea, advan-ced by some of our most prominent thinkers, that medical men must
shun political life, should be relegated to the past, and the profession urged to enter
into the spirit of public affairs, and to advance steps for necessary medical legislation
whereby laws for the betterment of themselves and the public in general could be en-
acted. VVe cannot expect such legislation by narrowing, our professional life so as to hold
ourselves entirely aloof from things political. However, the political life for the doctor
or surgeon is the danger signal in the pathway of some and should often be regarded
as a pitfall to be seen and avoided. The Police Surgeonship is essentially a political
office, but fortunately for the Police Surgeon it does not prohibit him from engaging
ssion. Nor would I deem it advisable for anyone,
who, having already chosen his particular line of work, to accept any position, political or
wtherwise that would thwart, for any period of time, this preconceived purpose, or would
lvinder .him in any way from following the course of preparation for such a career. A
ke position, with its necessary political environments, when the original aims and
.deas are kept well in mind, should aid rather than hinder such a course.

' HEN asked for an article, with the above caption, I feel like asking you to come
with me across the dim vista of the past, and kindly help me to brush away the
webs from my brain, as I hardly know where to commence my story or what to say
when I do. Must I tell the readers of the "Scalpel" the truth, the whole truth, and noth-
ing but the truth, about your short-comings, the little differences that occurred between
you and the dean from time to time? We can't do it, boys, for everything was wiped
off 'tOld Dad's" memory, when you said you wouldn't do it any more.
These stories that you hear around the college about rough houses, stairway
rushes, explosive chemicals, attached to the benches by forgetful .students are fabrica-
tions-criminal lies. Again when some colleague speaks about the unfinished parades
that were suddenly checked by offensive police interfernce, with free rides thrown in,
I stand ready to prove an alibi. Show me the man who ever saw disarranged benches,
pyramids of chairs, ornamented with detached chandeliers, and I will say to him, "You
of clean hands speak outj' and not one charge will be made. Again, during my seven
years of administration as dean I never saw but one of you enter the doors of a saloon,
and when that fact was mentioned from the arena there were only fifteen that acknowl-
edged a visit to a similar place and each one had a valid excuse.
Vlfe shall not dig up any skeletons, in fact, we do not know their resting place.
U. M. C. ha-s her foot ball, sing-sing clubs, her brass band, her Aesculapian, Beta
and Delta societies. As of yore our freshmen are ignored, our sophom-ores tolerated,
our juniors recognized, and our seniors adored. It is with pleasure that my mind can
wander back to the days when you as members of the class of '08 and others visited
the deanis office for the first time, some of you with bright expectant faces, full of hope
and vigorous determination to succeed, and others seemingly without a thought of the
vicissitudes and problems that would confront them. Some in the past, had the coun-
sel and careful guidance of loving parents, and later, the advice and watchful care of
painstaking instructors. Others were men of mature years who had tried without suc-
cess other professions and occupations and turned to medicine as their las-t hope. With
it all a large majority of you have 'fproved out" and are a credit to your Alma Mater.
I have talked to you about yourselves, and now I will have a few words to say
about U. M. C. The University Medical College is entering on her twenty-eighth year
of school life. This institution opened its eyes and put on its swaddling clothes for the
first time in the office of our esteemed friend and honored trustee, Professor Flavel B.
Tiffany. From a class of ten or twelve students and an empty treasury it has ad-
vanced to a college of national reputation, and today we have a graded class of over
two hundred men, largely college graduates, each student forced to meet high pre-
liminary requirement before being admittd. Now as to the graduation requirements we
are ranked with the best schools of our land,
It was only a few years ago that our diplomas were barred by some of the state
examining and licensing boards. The Association of American Medical Colleges
dropped us from her honor roll, a discredit to which we were not entitled. But today
every state in our broad land welcome the alumni of our college, and you will find your
diploma a letter of credit with every examining and licensing board in the country.
Of the twelve schools in the state of Missouri there are only two, the Washington
University of St. Louis, and the State University at Columbia, that stand a-s high in the
educational world, and they enjoy about the same points of credit as we do. In the
United States there are only eight or ten medical colleges that out-rank us, and they
are institutions with large endowment. How do we stand with the National Association
of Medical Colleges? I will tell you, We not only have been taken into her confidence
by reinstatement, but in the last seven years our school has been honored by having one
of its faculty twice called to the presidency of the National Body, a distinction no other
college in the United States claims.
Now what is the cause of this great prosperity? Is it an incidental condition as a
lesult of good times? No. For when we look around us, we find that in the last five or
six years a large number of medical schools have closed their doors, or consolidated
with other schools, largely on account of the advanced requirements necessary for ad-
mission and graduation. With us we saw the handwriting on the wall. We knew
that it was "quality more than quantity" that would win out, and we adopted that as
our standard. That, coupled with a thorough and scientific course of medicine and sur-
gery, taught by up-to-date educators, who search the hospitals and laboratories of both
continents each, year to secure the latest ideas and technique in teaching, and which
is presented in such a manner easily grasped by the student, and supplying him with
thorough understanding of the fundamental branches in medicine, as well as equipping
him with the latest discoveries here and abroad, is what gives our college its enviable
reputation among medical colleges.

benefited by his having lived You have selected for your profession one of the
'if broadest fields that civilization offers for individual renown as well as the greatesi
possible chance for benefiting and increasing the happiness of the human family. You must
not forget that when Darwin announced his theory of survival of the fittest that it
covers all the past as well as all the future of the human race. Applying this to man it
is intellectual development that makes him survive the conflict and battle of life. There-
fore you must decide today that you will be students of nature and science as long as
life lasts and by this be enabled to add many new facts to the glorious profession that
you have selected, to gain and retain the good will of your profession without which the
life of a physician is a failure. Therefore you should at once get a copy of the code of
Medical Ethics and study them well and thoroughly. They will teach you your correct
relations to the members of your profession and to the public. And let no tempta-
tion seduce you, no matter how flattering from the strong anchoring of a thorough knowl-
edge of the medical code of ethics. Don't be disheartened because all of our public
prints are filled by the advertisement of charlatans-and quacks, and boasted cures of
special diseases, because this charlatanism' has existed long before the days of Hippo-
crates and is gradually failing before education and intellectual development and will
finally be obliterated by truth itself. And if you follow the advice I have given you,
you will be one of an army whose armor is truth, which banished falsehood in the world.
The supreme moment of a man's life is when he takes his last look on this earth at
his past life. If his life has been guided by truth and a large vein of humanitarianism
there is within him that which says, "God's will be done." If on the other hand his life
has been full of untruth, fraud and deception, I would imagine in this aftermath there
would be wailing and gnashing of teeth and a coward would be before the bar of God.
Be truthful, be honest, cultivate humanitarianism. Also be an optimist. Remember that
"there never was a cloud -so black but what the sun was shining back of it."
HE objects and aims of every individual should be such that the world has been

BY ARTHUR E. HERTZLER, A. M., Ph. D., M. D.,
Professor of Diseases of Women and Clinical Gynecology.
By fundergraduatei' is meant a medical student in the catalog sense. By doctors
he is sometimes regarded as a foetal doctor but he isn't at all. Phylogenetically all
foetuses are alike, little frizzie-wizzies with little boxing-glove-like nubs for extremeties,
With small fluid-containing projections for a head with a much preponderating mass es-
thetically called the caudal extremity. Medical students are not all alike any more
than all doctors are alike. Some wise one has said that the boy is father of the man,
or something to that effect. Now the undergraduate is not only the advance agent of
the future doctor but a real true-to-life model. As the student is, so will the doctor be.
No school ever made a doctor and no school ever prevented a man from making a doc-
tor of himself if he has ever felt The Great Hunch. Now we teachers tin the catalog
sense please rememberj sometimes speak of how so-and-so has "come out" since he
was a freshman. That is nothing more than a piece of conceit on our part. So-and-so
has been out all the While and we have just found it out. I discovered this delusion
some years ago. Now when I see a Shell I just suspend judgment. Somebody may
come out-that is where I can see him sure enough but there is no creation de novo, as
the wise ones say, for he has been there all the while. In other words, he has just be-
gun to perambulate within the range of my vision fapologies to Houser.J Now I regard
it as necessary to "flunk" twenty per cent of sophomores. Not that any certain number
need it any more than any others but for its salutary effect on the class following. A
As already stated, I have for some time felt that students are not rightly judged
when they are considered as biological entities. I could never get a working system,
however, until Parmenter produced his really notable sketch. He there presents, alle-
gorically one might almost say, the whole history, not of each year of student life, but
of the different kinds of individuals which go to make up the medical profession as a
We recognize in the Freshman the type of medical man who is serious and en-
thusiastic, but is limited in his range of knowledge and conception. He goes about his
professional work with a deep feeling of responsibility. He abort-s typhoid fever and
pneumonia fand believes itl. He has unbounded faith in aconite in "fevers,' and in
antiphlogistine in "inflammation of the bowels." He is the homeopath of the regular
The professional Sophomore is not so numerous but he seems more so for the
same reason that you cannot judge the number of coyotes by the sound, nor the size of
autos by the odor that lingers after them. He is the "heap big doc." He speaks of
"ripping open abdomens" as if they were pumpkins, and I sometimes think he believes
the two are synonomous. He knows not only medicine in all its branches but also the
stump and the roots-particularly the latter. He knows a lot of other things. He can
tell by the plants in the window if inside you buy three roses for a quarter, or if a uni-
formed gent is there to mix things for the stomach. He also knows that a red sign
does not always mean a drug store.
The Junior is the real smooth article. It was for him, as a matter of fact that
the term, undergraduate, was coined. He represents a class of individuals designed by
nature for the insurance business. Just take a look at Parmenter's picture and imagine.
this scene: A furious noise, a cloud of dust and an odor of gasoline. This commotion
stops in front of a mansion. Out steps Doctor Junior. He ascends the steps rapidly,
bows at the doorbell and announces his presence. The maid knows intuitively that it is
The Doctor. He deposits his headpiece in the hall and hastens to m-eet the Lady in
the drawing room. f'Yes, it is a. very fine morning." "Yes, Three Weeks is a great
character study." Now when she returned from the theater she was informed by the
nurse that Reginald had learned how banks are made to assign and he had tried to
serve the candy man around the corner the same way. As a result he refused to lap
cream and breakfast cereals. Dr. J. hastens to the sick room and after inspecting the
little railroad train and toy auto he announce-s that the patient has rhinopharyngitis.
Pneumonis and appendicitis are threatening and if not checked coxitis may result. Skil-
ful treatment may succeed in preventing these complications. He gets busy with a.
prescription blank and here is the result:
Hydrargerie chloridie mightie,
Granum Centum unum less ninetie,
Ft. Chartae as many as will makie.
Sign One when Regie will takie.
Delivered of this he ha-stens to his awaiting conveyance and the horn of that ve-
hicle properly diagnoses the whole affair as it goes down the street: Frost! Frost!
And the Senior? Most men who take up medicine are seniors from the time
they matriculate. Serious men with a definite goal before them. Conscious of their op-
portunities, buoyed up by the consciousness of their power, possessed and attainable,
and acutely sensible of their responsibilities. This is the class of men who make the
medical school, and make teaching a position of pleasure and honor and make the pro-
fession of medicine what it is, and who must be looked to to develop it to its ultimate
possible limits of usefulness.

I"" HE Board of Health Department of Kansas City government is organized with the
Mayor as ex-officio president, the city physician and sanitary superintendent,
L'-J the health officer, the chief of police, the chief of the fire department and the
superintendent of streets. This board has charge, through the city physician and sani-
tary superintendent, of all matters connected with the public health and the sanitary
conditions of the city, also the treatment of the poor, and the regulation of quarantine of
contagious diseases. The city physician is recognized as the head of the department,

and his full title is "City Physician and Sanitary Superintendent." The health officer
is, by direct ordinance, placed under the control of the city physician and sanitary su-
perintendent. The health officer is designed more especially to look after sanitary
matters, while the city physician has direct charge of all of the city hospitals, the con-
tagious diseases, the dispensary at the city hall, and, since the eighth of Janaury, 1907,
all emergency cases, such as accidents, injuries, poisonings and the like.
For the treatment of the sick, in the dispensary service there are three assistant
city physicians, Dr. Paul Lux and Dr. Julius Frischer, each of whom graduated from the
University Medical College in 1905, and one colored physician, Dr. T. C. Unthank, who
makes the calls on the colored people. Dr. Lux and Dr. Frischer are each on duty half
a day at the city dispensary, and for half a day are making calls. Dr. Frischer attends
the workhouse from six to eight p. m. - ,
In connection with the dispensary at the City Hall there is a good stock of
drugs in charge of a graduate pharmacist. This stock of drugs is composed of standard
pharmaceuticals and chemically pure drugs of the highest grade that can be purchased.
The -drug room also keeps in stock in a refrigerator, anti-diphtheretic serum, anti-strep-
ticoccic serum and vaccine. These serums and vaccines are the best that can be -ob-
At the City Hall is also located the emergency hospital, where all cases of acci-
dents, injuries, poisonings and' acute sicknesses are taken and given temporary treatment.
This hospital consi-sts of a well equipped operating room, a female department with
three beds, bathroom and lavatory, and a male department with eight beds, bathroom
and lavatory. Three surgeons are in charge of this hospital, each standing an eight hour
watch, Dr. W. L. Gist, U. M. C., '06, Dr. R. A. Shiras, U. M. C., '06, and Dr. Ford B.
Rogers, Northwestern, '06.
The general hospital, which is located at Twenty-second and Cherry streets,
where all classes of hospital cases are taken and treated, has one hundred and eighty-
five beds The city is just on the eve of abandoning this building for the new general
hospital which is being erected at Twenty-third and Cherry streets.
This new hospital will be fire proof and absolutely modern in every detail. It
will have five hundred and forty-four beds. It will be so arranged that prisoners can
be taken care of as well as the milder contagious diseases of childhood. The present
force of the general hospital consists of the house surgeon, Dr. Paul B. Clayton, U. M.
C., '07, the assistant house surgeon, Dr. R. C. Henderson, U. M. C., '06 and four gradu-
ated internes There are twenty-three female nurses and five male nurses. When the
new hospital is occupied, this force will be considerably increased.
The St. George Hospital, which is located near the Randolph bridge, in the ex-
treme northeastern part of the city, on the banks of the Missouri river, is used as an
isolation hospital for smallpox patients. This hospital is in charge of Dr. Pipkin, a
graduate of the Kansas City Medical C-ollege. Under him is a suitable corps of nurses
Dr. Eugene Carbaugh, a member of the U. M. C. faculty, is the chief inspector of
contagious diseases, and is the final referee in the diagnosis of contagious diseases.
Dr. Carl Jackson, the health officer, U. M. C., 1897, has charge of twelve sani-
tary inspectors, who served more than fifteen thousand notices to clean up and abate
nuisances within the last year.
In the dispensary department last year, about six thousand patients were treated,
and twenty-two hundred calls or visits were made at the homes of patients. In the
emergency hospital about four thousand cases were treated. At the general hospital
about three thousand cases were treated. The average length of stay for each patient
in the general hospital was three weeks, and the death rate a fraction over ten per cent.
Counting out of thi-s mortality the patients who died within the first twenty-four hours
after being brought to the hospital, the mortality drops to six and one-half per cent.
If we were further to count out the cases of tuberculosis, the mortality would drop to
approximately three per cent.

At this, the close of another year, it seems only fitting that we pause for
a brief review of the happenings, experiences and associations that the Sophomore
Class of the University Medical College have undergone. Not that in such a retro-
spection we may but grow reminiscent, but by linking the past and present
together we are enabled to give a more complete class history.
' It was on or about the 2nd day of the month of September, in the year of
our Lord Une Thousand Nine Hundred and Six, that the present Sophomore
Class, then a green bunch of awkward, bilious, cadaverous Freshmen, gathered
at the University Medical College, gazing with open-mouth awe upon the novelty
of their new situation and wondering if they would ever become as dignified and
important looking as the bunch of students CSophs.j giving eachother the glad
hand and inquiring about their summer's practice.
After passing the trying period of going before a genial gentleman, who
always wears a benign smile QDr. jamesj, and who inquired about the physical,
mental and financial status of each, accepted all the hard cash extended to him
and gave in return an enrollment card and a Y. M. C. A. hand-book, with instruc-
tions to return the next day. Thus this class began its race in the study of medi-
'The members of this class are gathered from seven states, but Missouri and
Kansas furnish the majority. The circumstances that first brought some into
prominence were the matter of fact questions asked by the Kansas school teacher
CLindleyj, the gesticulation of the senator from Kansas QPorterj, the volumes of
"hot air" disseminated by the "Argentine Kid" QWolfeD, and the happy and witty
remarks of "Kid" Lewis.
. Upon its organization, as Freshmen, the class of IQIO elected the following
officers: G. S. Gilliland, Pres., E. M. Surface, V.-Pres., O. R. Wolfe, Sec. and
Treas.g R. P. Lewis, S. A.
At roll call in September of 19o7, a few voices failed to respond, and two
new names were entered. Last year we were sixty-two, this year fifty-one. Where
are the others, 15 the question asked in wonder and left unanswered.
We predict great things for the class of IQIO, and believe from it will come
some bright minds who will be an honor to the profession and a credit to the
University Medical College.

"' physicianis vacation should really have its beginning during his college days. If it is
onl a night at a theater a Saturday afternoon at the end of the car line in the
' ' ' ' , t' , l in olf, taking pictures
country or half day once in awhile fishing hun ing p ay g g
or a good walk across the country. A physician's occupation is a unique one in many re-
. . . . . . i . . f b-
spects. It not only carries with lt the welfare of individuals, but the whole financial a
ric of all successful and thriving nations is woven about his works. The heavier the
burden the more arduous the undertaking. His work is one of great magnitude and
grave responsibility, necessitating much physical endurance and mental stamina. This
brings 'mental fatigue. At all hours of the day and night his work goes on.
Sunday, a day of rest and vacation for others, finds the physici-an on his rounds
looking after the poor and the rich alike. ls he not entitled to fifty-two days of rest?
Most assuredly, yes. It is a matter of taste or fancy as to the location and kind of a
vacation the physician selects. It is only too oftenf that this choice is not a wise one.
A physician whose daily labor is surrounded by the busy whirl of our modern cities will
make a mistake if he selects a fashionable summer reort for his vacation and imagines
he is getting a vacation. while he is eating lobster salads and other indigestible articles,
drinking iced drinks both soft and hard, losing sleep and breathing impure atmosphere
while attending fashionable balls and receptions. lf he calls this a vacation he is deluding
himself and will return to work unrefreshed and his work will be more burdensome than
be-fore he .left it.
A trip to any of the great medical and hospital centers, while of inestimable value
to the physician from the standpoint of knowledge gained and should be taken often,
should not be called a vacation, but hard work and should never rob him of the vaca-
tion and rest which is so justly due him.
I know of no better way to spend a vacation than to go hunting and fishing, you
may not catch many fish or kill many elk, deer, moose or bear, but you will witness na-
ture in all her glory.
You will live in weather that will invigorate you and the sunshine will make the
bloom of youth return to your pallid cheeks. He who goes hunting into the mountains
to shoot and kill alone does not reap the full benefit of his outing. On trips of this char-
acter many virgin ravines 'and cliffs are viewed for the first time by the white man,
and he would be a dull observer if he did not profit by such a lesson.
Nature unadorned is found on all sides on these trips. An eagle's nest far up in
the mountains stored away in the place most inaccessible to both many and beast elicits a
profound admiration for the sagacity of this noble bird, the little striped ground squirrel
as he busies himself, unaware of your presence, or rather not fearing a stranger, in
gathering pine cones and storing them away for his winters use is an evidence of thrift
ever enjoyed by the lover of nature. To see the little fellow as he chatteringly runs to
THE ROOSEVELT OF U. M. C.
the top of a pine tree to his work and to watch him as he cuts and shoves the pine cones
from their attachments and seemingly in a careless manner drop them to the ground,
makes one admire him both for his sagacity and for the untiring zeal with which he
goes about his work providing for a rainy day.
Always take your camera with you on. your vacation. It is an excellent though
harmless gun to use on big and little game on a hunting trip. A snap shot with a kodak
often 'brings a trophy more lasting than a 45-70 Winchester rifle. With photo records
you can live your trips over again on long winter evenings. I know of nothing so re-
freshing to the tired body and wearied brain as to pause in a locality surrounded by un-
burnished Nature where every pine or spruce tree is beckoning to you with hospitable
hands, to pitch your tent and make your home beneath their wide spread and protecting
arms. You feel your welcome and are assured of a bounteous feast from Nature's store-
house filled to overflowing with glorious sunshine, fresh air and grand scenery.
Who would not enjoy a stay in such a sanitarium, the very roof of which appears
as the ceiling of Heaven studded with myriads of sparkling diamonds.
The pleasures of camp life are memories ever to be enjoyed in after years, when
in a reminiscent mood, ones goes over his outing trips. The snapping of the dry pine
boughs as they are thrown on the camp fire, the tongues of the flame as they dart up-
ward like lightning to disappear into the halo of darkness amid myriads of meteor-like
Eire sparks, is la picture so firmly and pleasantly fixed on one's memory that he will long
to live this trip over again. V
All the unpleasant occurrences, the hardships endured and the disappointments
are soon forgotten, and in their stead one thinks of the camp fire affability-of the
story-swapping experiences, of sound restful sleep, good appetites and digestion and the
lucky catch of that big trout, or the grand scenery witnessed while tracking elk, deer,
moose or bear. '
My friend, be you hunter or fisher, d-o you not agree with me?
After all, we derive much pleasure in. this life from what we eat, how we sleep,
what we see and how we look at it.
Dear doctor, take a trip of this kind, you will return with a ravenous appetite, a
castiron digestion, new blood coursing through your blood vessels, you will have re-
newed interest in your office or other duties, and will make firm resolutions to return
to the woods again next year.
I am tired of the asphalt streets o'er which we daily go,
Am longing for the old trail-the trail we used to know.
I donit want any smooth roads or vehicles rubber tired,
I don't want any horses with high titles or nobly sired.
I want the trail a-winding amid high mountain crags,
And a train of pack cayuses with stout and sturdy- legs.
I don't want a liveried driver with uniform so grand,
I don't want a procession led by a noisy band.
I want the -old Wrangler with his style so queer and quaint,
I want t-o see the pictures that no artist e'er can paint.
Ishwood trail, Two Ocean Pass, is good enough for me,
H-ere wedded dew drops separate, each one to find a sea.
At night, the trailing completed, while sitting by the fire,
The whole world seems a playh-0-use, what more could we desire?
The hunting trips of years ago, with pleasures are reviewed,
With many plans for next year's trip, our spirits are imbued.
I can see the sparks ascending through the halo of the night.
On each peak a star is anchored like a bright electric light.
Ah, listen- to the music sweet of the wind among the trees,
'Tis a song of glorious freedom, and do just as you please.
Lay aside your high collar, you-r tie and your cuffs,
Come with me along the trail to the Rockies' highest bluffs,
'Tis there, the sun shines brightest, the air is pure and sweet,
There earth and I-Ieaven, in Nature's bridal bridal chamber, almost meet.
When the last cayuse is loaded-, ready for the final start,
I want our trails to be the same, or not very far apart.
May there be no smooth slide rock 0-r places very high,
When' we start on the final trail to the camp high in the sky.
All fallen timber in the trail, may the good angels remove,
That the journey to permanent camp may be nice and smooth
May Game Warden, St. Peter, welcome us as his guests,
The hunting season now is closed, the game will get a rest.

RICHARD LIGHTBURN SUTTON,
Ass't Sur. U. S. N. fRetired.j
O the recent graduate or to the medical man who is not so fortunate as to inherit
a lucrative practice in a congenial field, the career of a surgeon in the United
States Navy has much to offer. Aside from the matter of sentiment doctors
as a class, are far from immune to wan-derlust, while few men find a pair of shoulder
straps unbecoming to their particular style of beauty-the material rewards are much
greater than those which fall to the lot of the average civil practitioner of medicine.
Of the three public services, the navy alone allows the assistant surgeon his pro-
motion, with increased rank and emoluments, at the en-d of three years.
The course -of preliminary instruction at the Naval Medical School in Washington,
to which all newly commissioned men are ordered shortly after appointment, serves,
among other things, to give the beginner an excellent idea of the work he will be ex-
pected to perform in future.
One of the instructors is la lieutenant of the line whose duty it is to look after
the education of the student officers in matters nautical. 'So well does he perform the
task assigned that few men graduate from the school without a thorough knowledge of
at least a portion of the salt water sailor's alphabet. Notwithstanding this pre-fatory
training, however, the enthusiastic embryo admiral from the great Middle Welst, who has
had little experience with the Bounding Deep and all that pertains thereto, will find his
initial experiences on board a man-'o-war more or less disconcerting. The younger ele-
ment in the wardroom will strive- to make matters interesting for the newcomer in a
variety of ways, and their well directed efforts are usually crowned with success. But
it is all "for the good of the service" and the less-ons learned from these youthful tutors
are frequently beneficial and seldom forgotten. '
The quarters over which the doctor holds direct sway consist of his cabin in the
wardroom, the term applied to the after portion of the gun-deck, which is divided into
-compartments, or rooms, for the personal use of the commissioned force, and the
hospital or sickbay, with its appended dispensary. The private cabin is rather a minute
apartment, about -six by eight feet in size, eq-uipped with a metal folding bed which shuts
up against the bulkhead when not in use, several chests of drawers, a combined writing
-desk and bookcase with a plate mirror set in the upper portion, la metal rack containing
wash bowl, pitcher and towels, and a swivel chair. Ventilation is secured by means of
blowers and, in hot climates, an electric fan gives additional comfort.
The sickbay is generally located forward, on the upper or lower gun deck, and is
a model little hospital, especially on the newer and larger vessels. The beds are of the
shelf pattern, with a surrounding rail for additi-onal safety in rough weather, and are of
metal, finished in aluminum or enamel. The smaller boats carry from four to six, the
flag ships a dozen or more.
The deck beneath, of polished or shellaced hardwood, is kept spotlessly clean.
Leading out from the bay is a bath room, with tile floor and enamel tub. The dispen-
sary, which is an apothecary's shop, a bacteriologic laboratory and a hospital steward's
boudoir, all in one, is a marvel of compact utility. Many of the recently completed ves-
sels also have tile lined operating rooms, equipped with the best modern furniture. The
hospital is under the immediate care of a hospital steward and one or more apprentices.
These men are selected not only for their knowledge and ability, but on account of their
neatness and gentlemanly deportment as well, and a finer, more efficient corps of
nurses would be hard to find. The surgeon's day commences with morning sick call.
which the bugle sounds immediately after breakfast.
As the little marine trumpeter swells out his chest and sends the doleful strains
of "Come and get your quinine, qui-nine, q-u-i-n-i-n-e" meandering between decks, the
sailors who desire medical attention go forward to the dispensary. Here they are ex-
amined, admitted to the sickbay if necessary, or placed on the UBinnacle list,' a slip
of paper bearing the names of those recommended to be excused from duty. Some re-
ceive treatment and are sent back to work. Occasionally, though rarely, a malingerer
is encountered. By 11 o'clock the doctor is generally free to do as he chooses. A micro-
scope, with plenty of supplies, is always furnished, and the late edition of standard media
cal works are supplied on requisition. The willing, conscientious student is given every
encouragement to pursue special studies or do research work.
Service at sea is alternated with shore duty in naval hospitals, at recruiting sta-
tions or in universities, every two or three years.
The life is a varied one, replete with interesting experiences. To the young prac-
titioner who is willing and able to meet the not unreasonable requirements of the ex-
amining board, the prospect is no more alluring than the realization is satisfactory.
Ellie Armg Snrgenn
' BY A. W. NlcARTHUR, M. D.,
Lecturer on Minor Surgery and Surgical Dressings.
Vi writing an article for the U. M. C. Year Book upon the subject of "The Army
1 5 Surgeon," I hardly know where to begin nor where to leave off, for the subject is
l-4 one so varied in its aspect that to cover the ground- thoroughly would make an
article much too long for the purpose for which it is intended, however, briefly, I will
endeavor to present a few facts and figures depicting the advantages and disvantages of
a career in the medical department of the U. S. A., for the average young man who
has but rcently come into possession of the much coveted D." degree.
The medical department of the U. S. A. is probably more civic in character than
that of any other branch of the service and to begin with will say, that any young man
imbued with the spirit of a military career and whose enthusiasm is inspired by the
"God of War,'i would do well to pause and ponder e'er he enter upon the life of a sur-
geon of the U. S. A. 'Tis true, there might come a time, once more when the clarion
notes of the bugle call, "to arms" reverberates through the land and the fires of pa-
triotism kindled in the breast of every true American, then the army surgeon's life
would change from that of a "hum-drum" existence in some isolated post to an active
one at the front, upon the field of battle, but this is an eventuality that should only be
considered as a possibility and not by any means as a certainty. Entrance to the medi-
cal service of the U. S. A. can be had in two ways, viz., by contract or by commission.
A contract is made, as arule,for one year, unless sooner terminated by the Surgeon
General, the pay under a contract is one hundred and fifty dollars per month, which
never varies, as does that under a commission, the allowances are those of a First Lieu-
tenant, these consist of mileage at seven cents per mile when traveling under orders,
quarters, fuel and feed for horse, when mounted, everything else must be paid for by
the Surgeon, such as expense of mess, uniforms, etc., bachelor officers usually mess
together and thirty dollars per month would be a fair estimate of the expense to each
man, uniforms probably would average twenty dollars more per month, leaving one
hundred dollars to pay other expenses which vary, more or less, according to the char-
acteristics of the particular individual, from the above figures it is seen that a thrifty
young man could probably lay away nine hundred dollars per year at least.
In times of peace the tour of service is ordinarily arranged so the surgeon spends
from six to twelve months at a post, the intent being to transfer him from one post to
until he has made the rounds, foreign service is the first to which the contract
is usually assigned, this being a two years tour of our island possessions, the
work is executive as well as professional in character, when stationed at a post, the
has charge of the post hospital, is responsible for the efficiency of the service,
the safe care of the property, every item of which is charged to him and must be ac-
counted for, the hospital corps is also under his direct supervision, the member-sv of
which he must instruct in drill, lectures, etc., professionally, he has charge of all
enlisted men at the post, the officers, their families, civilian employes and their fami-
lies, he is als-o permitted to answer calls outside of the confines of the post, when it
does not conflict with his military duties, in this way he can pick up a few extra dol-
lars. Some of the principal objections to a contract, in my mind, are: First, the holder,
if disabled in line of duty has no pension rights, second, he can be discharged at any
time with or without cause, and third, all desirable assignments are usually given to com-
missioned officers. Application for a contract should be made to the Surgeon General,
Washington, D. C., giving professional and moral qualificationsg if these are satisfac-
tory and there exists a vacancy, the Surgeon General will probably order the applicant
to report to the nearest military post for examination as to his physical and mental
fitness to fill the position to which he aspires.
A commission is to be preferred should the applicant contemplate adopting the
U. S. Army as a permanent field for his medical careerg should he successfully pass the
mental and physical examination, he is issued a commission, with the rank of First
Lieutenant, the pay being one hundred and twenty-five dollar per month, after five
years' service he is entitled to take the examination for the rank of captain, which pays
one hundred and fifty dollars per monthg the ranks of Major, Colonel, Lieutenant
Colonel and Brigadier General are successively attained by right of seniority, the Sur-
geon General is selected by the President from the ranks of the Brigadier Generals on
the active list. To him all reports go, he dictates the policy of the medical department
of the U. S. Army and is held responsible for the efficiency thereof.
Commissioned officers can be discharged only for cause and then not without the
right of trial by court martial. At the age of sixty-two, any officer, if he so desires can
retire upon half pay, which amount he continues to draw till his death. All commis-
sioned -officers receive ten per cent in addition to their regular pay, for every five
years service up to forty per centgg after that there is no increase.
Socially, the life of the army officer is not unpleasant, particularly so, while sta-
tioned at a large post, here he finds much in the receptions, parties, balls and club to
help while away what might other-wise be dull and tedious hours if stationed at a
Western or so-called frontier post. Much time can be pleasantly spent in pursuits of
the rod and gun. Everything considered, I should say that the life of the army surgeon
c-ompares favorably with that of the physician in private practice. 'Tis true, he can
never aspire to the high honor of being great, as a physician or surgeon for the limi-
tations that naturally surround his sphere of work preclude the possibility of his being
able to compete with his more favored brother engaged in private practice, the word
compete is used here with reference to opportunity, it is obvious that the physician
in private practice in a large city with modern hospitals, large clinics and a large clien-
tele to draw from, has a much better opportunity to develop his skill and perfect his
technic than has the- army surgeon in his more restricted field. I admit that a few
army surgeons have carved their names high upon the "altar of fame," but these are
the exception and n-ot the rule, a large majority of the truly great, in medicine and
surgery, came from the ranks of the physicians in private practice.
In ch-oosing one's life work, no matter what the sphere, one important point should
be constantly born in mind, viz., that of personal adaptabilityg certain attributes -of
character are peculiarly requisite in one to insure a successful military careerg chief
among these may be mentioned a thorough command of one's self, for often times, or-
ders from a superior officer, harshly given, will prompt the inner feeling to revolt and
require all the -strength of a strong nature to subdue. He should next ask himself:
Would he be content to lead a roving life with no fixed place that he could call home?
Possessed of "thorough self-command," and the last question answered in the affirma-
tive, I think, other things being equal, no young man will make a mistake in choosing
a medical career in the U. S. Army.
Natinnal Lbuarh-Armg, Zliielh mth Glamp Sanitation
BY J. THOMAS PITTAM, M. D.,
Lecurer on Pharmacy.
,"1 HE importance of the medical department of the national guard, as compared with
i its other staff departments has been somewhat neglected, but recently the ten-
dency 1S to iecognize that department in its true value and give to it more in-
dependence and power.
The statistics of the wars and of the pension department prove that if we could
prevent this tremendous and unnecessary loss of life from disease, this country would
save in pensions alone in less than twenty years the entire cost of each war. Recent
discoveries in sanitation and modern knowledge of bacteriology enable us to eliminate
preventable diseases. If a large army be called together hastily in the summer time
without proper medical organization, where it can exercise the power of direction and
supervision unless it is elevated and fortified with the power necessary to carry out its
purposes, there will in a very short time prevail a miserable and wretched condition in
that army. It must either have the proper organization or must take the consequences.
Every death from preventable disease is an insult to the intelligence of the age, when it
occurs in an army it becomes a state crime. This country in the hour of danger expects
every soldier if necessary to lay down his life in its defense and honor. It should there-
fore give him the best sanitation and the best medical supervision that can be had, and
the power to enforce its demands. The medical officer who selects his camp with the
foresight of a sanitary engineer and who regulates the camp drainings, and the location
of the latrines, who inspects water supplies, food and its preparations, the soldiers'
and their cleanliness, and avoids the epidemic of typhoid fever, dysentery and diarrhea
which have decimated armies in the past, serves his country better than he who presides
over the wards filled with disease, who often through weary days or months of 'suffer-
ing, are invalided home or returned to the fighting line in a weakened condition. Ow-
ing to the short time state troupes spend in camps of instruction it is difficult to im-
press them with the necessity of sanitary discipline, and sanitary organization. The
Japanese would never have won that series of brilliant victories unless they had their
army in the most magnificent physical condition, and they would not have been in that
condition if they had not had the most thorough sanitary government, and medical or-
ganization that any army has ever yet had in all history. The medical organization
should be the advance agents of an army. The condition of the country from a sanitary
standpoint should be known as well as strategically. And if known and used to advan-
tage will afford its possessors an advantage over his opponent. Surely, as our citizen
soldiers are the backbone of this country and are as good as any in the world, they
should have provisions for their health and lives inferior to none in the world. The med-
ical officer should be omnipresent. He should be in the front of the army as well as
in the rear. He should be with the first screen of scouts, with his microscope and chem-
icals, testing and labeling wells so the army to follow would drink no contaminated wa-
ter. Every town or hamlet should be examined in its sanitary condition, known in ad-
vance of the army, so that contagion and infection, if found, can be isolated and the ap-
proaching troups warned. The medical officer should accompany foraging parties and
be with the commissariat officers inspecting the various foods, fruits and vegetables
sold by the natives along the line of march, long before the arrival of the army, if the
food was tainted or fruit over ripe or water required boiling, notices should be posted
to that effectg and such should the respect and discipline of every soldier from com-
manding officers to the file and rank that obedience to all orders be absolute. The
hospitals should be used for the care of casualties caused by shell and shrapnel. And
not be loaded to their capacity with preventable diseases, such as diarrhea, dysenteries,
typhoid fever, which are the result of improper feeding and drinking and neglected
sanitation. These diseases have brought more campaigns to disastrous termination than
the strategies of opposing generals or the bullets of their followers. Armies will have
their deaths, their killings and their tragedies but they are legitimate tragedies of war,
and should not be murders through criminal neglect.
Our government will not tolerate the maintenance of a large army in time of
peace, its presence being considered a menace to republican institutions, it is, therefore,
more necessary to us than to any other country in existence to have the best equipped
and most efficient medical department of any service in the worldg a department whose
elasticity will be sufficiently great to permit of its rapid extension in the emergency of
war. ' At such times, of course, it must draw its working force from civil life. And if the
best element of the profession at large is to be enlisted, it is only fair and just to that
profession, that it should receive due recognition. The instruction and examination of
members of the hospital corps of the national guard is very lax. And the instructions
to the rank and file is almost nothing. And the condition is not to be wondered at where
we consider that this government pays the medical department nothing for their serv-
ices. And in many instances supplies such as medicine, bandages and instruments must
be paid for out of their own purse. Some of the states are positively niggardly when
it comes to maintaining their citizen soldiery. In 1894 the French in their Madagascar
campaign lost seven thousand- men out of fourteen thousand from preventable diseases,
most of them could have been saved with proper sanitary and medical provisions only
twenty-nine died from bullets. I mention this bit of history to impress upon you if pos-
sible the tremendous importance of fighting the silent foe that is always present as well
as the open foe in the field.
Until the surgeon general department is lifted to a plane far above its pres-ent
level and is given power to enforce its prerogatives its fight against the silent foe -that
has killed eighty per cent in every war in which America has ever engaged cannot be
crowned with victory. It is not for the officer but for the file and rank who brave
the brunt of the battle that the appeal should be made.

THE UNIVERSITY HOSITAL
Flhv liniurraitg Mnapital
HE University Hospital is an outgrowth of the All Saint's The cornerstone was
laid on a blustery cold March day of 1881, the Hon. John L. Peck delivering the
principal address. Father Jardine, the rector of St Mary s Episcopal church, was
one of the prime movers in the building of this hospital. It was Miss Fitzgerald, or as she
was afterwards known as Sister Isabel, who gathered the funds to buy the ground and
erect the building and the work was done with dispatch in accordance with the spirit
of the then booming Kansas City. For some years the hospital was under the manage-
ment of St. Mary's church, superintended by Sister Isabel, but after the death of Father
Jardine, St. Mary's, you might say, practically died and in the disorganization of this
parish, the hospital began to disintegrate. Mr. Tyler, a member of the church, placed
a loan on the property and while he lived he protected its interest, as well as he could.
But at his death it seemed that Sister Isabel began to lose courage and finally the prop-
erty passed into the hands of the receiver, and was eventually controlled by one of the
banks. Then the trustees -of the college leased the property from year to year, for sev-
eral years, each one of the trustees trying his hand as manager until about ten years
ago, they bought the property and changed its name from All Saints and called it by
the name that it now bears, The University Hospital. During the previous years of its
existence the hospital was not self supporting, requiring a sum of several hundred dol-
lars each year to be supplied by the University Medical College to meet the deficit.
At the time it was bought by the trustees, it had run behind about thirty-five hun-
d-red dollars, but since then for the past five years it has been self suppo-rting, and the
last four, since its new additions, it has not only paid expenses, but has bought and paid
for three of four thousand dollars worth of equipments. The management of the hospi-
tal has kept uppermost in mind the importance of the enforcement of perfect sanitation,
good equipment and especially efficient, courteous and impartial service. And it is
their desire that the profession appreciate the fact that no favoritism' is shown here,
not even to the trustees. Any doctor sending patients to the hospital may rest assured
that his interests will be conscientiously and carefully guarded. The hospital has n-ow
forty-two rooms and four wards and can accommodate- seventy-five or eighty patient-s.
They have thirty-six nurses of their own production, five internes, a superintendent and
besides a Lord Chesterfield-Dr. Frankenburger, as resident physician, who is here night
and day, with eternal vigilance in the interest of all patients and doctors. The watch-
word is cleanliness, efficiency, faithfulness, loyalty and obedience.
The present trustees are:

The demand for well equipped and thoroughly educated nurses has never been
as great as at the present time. Legislators, influenced by educated and consciencious
members of the profession, fully realize the need of the credulous public in protection
against the ignorant and unscrupulous pretender. As a result of this finding, they put
forth a means to an elevation of the nursing profession. In order that the chosen few
should acquire this standard, it has ever been the aim and ambition of the trustees of
the University Hospital to have the nur-ses graduated from its wards second to none.
Hence no means or efforts have been spared to reach this high standard in this insti-
tution. In the first place the one applying for admittance to training must be of good
standing, socially, mentally and physically. A high school education and the best of
references are required and even then they are taken in on probation for two months
and if they prove to the superintendent that they are worthy of the training they are
furnished with a uniform and begin their real training which now lasts three years fthe
two months probation includedl. They have an allotted time to serve in the different
capacities in a surgical hospital-for instance, two months on night duty, same time in
operating room, drug room, etc. They graduate three years from date of entrance, and
are allowed three weeks vacation each year.

A illvirnapvrtinn in 1923 ,
AY is dying in the west. The golden chariot of fire sinks low. From glorious
rays of the most burnished, they fade to a softened and delicate hue, until slowly,
slowly it sinks from view, and in the azure ultramarine sky the tiny stars twinkle
forth from their hiding place in a fleecy bank of cumulous clouds. The silver moon
peeps out throwing his silver rays upon the landscape. This is the picture before me
as I sit in my invalid chair at one of the low French window-s of my fair villa in sunny
Italy, and think of my life of youth, health and activity twenty years ago. During two
years of that time there came to me the most valuable experience one can enjoy, indeed,
For some time I had co-ntemplated taking a course in a hospital training school
and becoming a trained nurse. Con-sequently I entered the University Hospital Training
School for nurses at Kansas City, Mo., then affiliated with the University Medical Col-
lege, a noble institution of its kind, known both for the phenominal powers and compe-
tency of the faculty and its exceptional class of students. This, with these favorable sur-
roundings, and perfect equipment, the University Training School stood forth, symbolic
of an ideal school for nurses. I was agreeably surprised to find -that my class-mates
were very congenial and exactly the sort of women destined to make a name for them-
selves in their chosen profession. Thus We lived together in the nurses' home-thirty-
six girls, differentiated widely enough in personal traits, to result in a delightful char-
Mi-ss Forrester was our superintendent of nurses and I am free to say that my
limited qualifications are, indeed, inadequate to unfold to you a picture of her life as I
saw, and still see her. She was from one of Kansas City's best and aristocratic families.
When I say aristocratic your mind immediately deduces a society Woman, not high, but,
indeed, high society. Thus she came to us perfected intellectually and professionally.
Tall and impressive, possessing a manner causing one to really love to fulfill her every
wish. A true lady-and I do not hesitate in saying that her influence on my life was not
small. And did I need good influence in school? Wa-s I an angel? Ask Mother Liston.
Miss Forrester is now happily married to a progressive undertaker, and I often see her
when she and her devoted "Jeremiah" make their annual "run across the pond," in quest
of the very latest antiquities in coffin handles and hearse plumes.
Dr. John M. Von. Frankenburger Chow he acquired hisname isbeyo-nd my com-
prehensionl, spends a few months each year in his native land, acquiring the true ac-
cent. Dr. J. M. V. F. was the worthy manager of the University Hospital, and his un-
ruffled disposition, acquired while kick adjuster of that placid institution, won him many
friends among all of the different nations of the earth. Consequently he finds it neces-
sary in -order to handle his extensive office practice quietly, to employ seven interpre-
ters and a Latin stenographer. It has been a great pleasure in the years that have
flown, to keep the girls, or many of them, located, as they have strayed in so many dif-
ferent paths. F-or I loved many in the old surroundings. Girls, strictly, remember, and
sin-ce I have told you of them, collectively, I will, of those I can, give my impressions
Grace Crosby Powers was an Eastern girl perfectly trained in those delightful typi-
cally Eastern places of learning for young ladies. Her feminine charms, protecting in
her school life to a nicety were in her social life unfolded to the world, and she had
scores of men at her feet.
This aimless life of society and travel bored her, and she began to realize her
value, and accordingly entered the University Hospital Training School for Nurses,
called to this noble institution by her finer senses. She remained in the University
Hospital the allotted time, naturally having many unusual experiences, not being an or-
dinary nurse, and of course, men entertained precisely the same views of her as they
did in her Eastern life.
Incidentally, Cupid, at one time during her training nearly persuaded her that
she had met her natural affinity, but the other party, contrary to expectations, didn't
materialize, or at least fate intervened and she went from our midst a typical Bachelor
Girl. Naturally, she received offers of hospital positions, some of national renown.
But no, in thinking that private nursing would more benefit mankind, she refused them.
However, after a certain interval, she more deeply realized her position and returned to
the East, where her accomplishments could be better appreciated. And then, suddenly,
like a tremendous awakening the real intent of nat-ure for her lifels work was recognized.
This keen and perceptive minded Grace Powers was to be an exact counterpart of the
so-called fictitious Sherlock Holmes, and she became the world's best known woman de-
tective. I lost note of her for owing to her own desire- and impulse, her newspaper popu-
larity waned, but I learned that she did at length meet her earthly affinity. If so I am
content only to hope that it is true, and that she may happily enjoy life among a people
of her own per-ception and appreciation. I -
Another interesting girl, whom I well remember, was Miss Fay Jopling. She was
bright and talented-an artist-but she was not puffed up over the fact that she could
manipulate more than -one kind of br-ush. Of course, while in training she had more
practice with bristle brushes, green soap, alcohol, ether, Herrington's Tr. of Iodine and
gauze wash rags, than oils and colors. Her talent was too great, however, to be eradicat-
ed by a paltry two years hard work in a training school for nurses. After a few years
private nursing her "ship" came in-in the form of a rich HG. P." who, recognizing her
great talent, as something worth while, sent 'her to Paris for five years. Now she is
famous the world over for her wonderful studies in violet and grey.
I read not long since a strange chronicle. The heroine so much reminded me
of a nurse in training. I faintly remember her, she Wore glasses and came from Eure-
ka, Kas., and her first name was John, Oh, pardon, why I must be flustrated, John isn't
a girl's or a woman's name. Nevertheless, notwithstanding these many conflictions this
is the chronicle.
"Now there dwelt in the land of the setting sun, west of the Walnut in the land
of Eureka, forsooth, a brown-eyed maid of the House of Graffin, and thither, in this land,
did her bondswomen -and handmaidens -minister unto her with myrrh, ointment and
mu-ch purple and fine linen, and day unto day did she bask in the sun with her harp
and psaltery, even so, a princess of joy and beauty of face. And straightway, it became
spread throughout the land, concerning her, and much were the wise men, and love-
makers wrought up within themselves. And straightway, there journeyed from the East
u young prince of the tribe of John, coming thither to inquire concerning her, and he
bowed low before her and did do obeisance unto her, and spake, saying, "Oh daughter of
the women of Graffin, long have come to my land tales of thy charms, and the half was
never told." "Oh! thou art beautiful in mine eyes, fair daughter of Graffin. May I make
thee unto myself a wife. The handmaidens of my father's house shall minister unto
thee, my people shall worship thee, wilt thou then be mine?" And she being a woman of
few words, saith, "Yes, Oh Prince, I am thine." And it came to pass that the prince
returned to his own land, much rejoiced within himself.
But alas, he shortly fell ill of a grievous plague, and did stralghtway pass into the
land of shadows, even into Hades, and in many countries was there weeping and wailing
f teeth. And the woman of Graffin went forth into the wilderness, and
there, clad in sack cloth and ashes, did mourn for forty days and nights. Then she re-
turneth to her land and mounting her beast did betake herself to a house, wherein she
ministered unto the sick. And there went from her the death of the young prince, and
even did she make merry and flirt with exceeding madness, with the young men of the
school and she did sorely grieve the lady of the house. So great was her wrath against
this foolish Graffinite, that she bade her straightway leave the house, and now in the
wilderness doth she wail and tear herself, because she is not among them that did seek
to love the lady and so she did pass into the land of everlasting sunshine even into the
Elesyian fields." This is the story, and as I look back, I do hope if I may speak figura-
tively, she came to a better end. Thus ends the thread of life.
and gnashing o
Anna Von Brun, was that her name? No-oh, yes, it might as well have been, for
it became that later, it was then Anna Wood. She was a Virginia girl, a Southern
dream. Though very independent, she was such a tiny, beautiful dollg but she made an
ideal nurse, indeed was never known to break a rule. She was the coquette of the train-
ing school. She cast the poor infatuated men's affections to the four winds.
At length she discovered the real man, a patient. Just a trifle more of hospital
romance. So great were her charms and so madly in love was he, that her almost
magical influence brought about his recovery. So solicitious was she that she re-
frained from going to her meals in her zealous and anxious care of him.
Almost immediately on completing her training, they were married and after a
honeymoon in Europe, they returned to Chicago, where the Hon. G. W. Von Brun was
a leading lawyer. Evidently, desolated as I am to relate Cupid committed grievous er-
ror, and apparently the young wife had been singing, "Love, Marriage and Divorcef for
soon she returned to Kansas City, with a decree of divorce in one hand and a sweet lit-
tle French poodle in the other. She later entered a convent in Canada and to this day,
ministers unto the poor, sick and afflicted. Moral: "Trifling girls and flirting hens
always come to some bad end."
You have possibly heard of the man who went to Michigan to live, and later re-
lated to former friends that 'tUp there," people were known as Michiganders. "Presum-
ably then," said the friend "the women are Michigeese and the children Michigoslingsf'
Well, Effie King was a typical Missouriander who said, f'Well, youalls says as how
youalls don't reckon it won't hurt nothing nohowf' .
Kingett was a dear popular little girl who made a tremendous success of her
work, and was liked by all who knew her. After triumphantly completing her work
here she took post-graduate work at St. Luke's Hospital, N. Y., also the course of Hos-
pital Economics at Columbia University.
Thus she came forth a well equipped and ideal nurseg and shortly became super-
intendent of nurses at Bellvue Hospital, N. Y., where she remained for five years. If
you now were to pass down a certain portion of Fifth avenue, N. Y., your notice would
be forcibly brought to a beautiful and comfortable residence, the home of a well known
New York surgeon, Dr. Smyth Webster and his family, a devoted wife and four chil-
dren. Kingett is that mother. V
Florence Haley flitted through training like a dreamy ray of belated sunshine.
She was one of those beautiful, entrancing languishing creatures, destined never to
marry, for old maids were born, not bred, so--she never married. After taking dancing
lessons at the old Academy of Dancing on Tr-oost, Miss Wagner's if I remember cor-
rectly, this awakened in her veins a long slumbering passion of fire, made dormant by
her surroundings. So she later entered a theatrical school, and for many years starred
in vaudeville. Oh, yes, Dear Reader, surely, you remember of the Gay Philisy Trifles of
the theatrical world. Ah, in ordinary vernacular, "she was great." Where is she now?
Ah, let me see, yes, in New York, she in her old age, conducts a select dancing acad-
emy for young ladies, and has founded a hospital for dumb animals. She is still a child
of youth, acquiring instruction "From the other side."
Miss Nannie Williamson was another Kansas girl, from that well known uni-
versity town, Ottawa. She was a charming little lady, fresh from high school, such a
pretty fresh type, light wavy hair, azure blue eyes, a dream, indeed the sight of such
a face was enough to win a sufferer back to health. It was an effort of our super-
intendent to guard her sweet, innocent charms from the hosts of admirers, and this
was considered a successful portion of her training. But when her course was com-
pleted there was no kind protecting superintendent, so after nursing for a year in Kan-
sas City she was stolen by a stalwart young man who took her, to be her strong and
faithful guardian. So intoxicating were her innocent charms that he threw aside a
blushing Texas rosebud. As a casual mention he was a U. M. C. student and graduat-
ed in her class. I donit remember his name, but it was rather long, and contained in
some part of it, the letters, K-i-r-k. They lived in Texas where he became a prominent
You remember in the story of "The Clansmanf' a very popular book at one time,
of Elsie Stoneman, who was such a kind sweet girl, who sought to make herself agree-
able and helpful to all and was universally liked. Now that was the sort of a girl Cecil
Liston was. "Mother Liston" as she was commonly known, due to, if you will allow me
to express myself plainly, her rather plump and motherly appearance.

Lissie had a little romance. This was soon forgotten as she labored among the many
er her care, ministering unto their needs and wishes. She became
so infatuated with her work that -she decided to become an M. D. and at present is a
throat specialist in one of the large New York clinics.
In far away I-Iolland in the little city of Leydon, the birth of Rembrandt, the
great Dutch artist, occurred. Fair old Leydon has about itself like a beautiful, unseen
and fragile veil, a mysterious and classic atmosphere and as tradition relates this rare
patients that came und
phase clings to those who are fortunate enough to claim it as their birthplace. In this
delightfully exclusive atmosphere occurred the birth of Katrina Wilhelmina Barkman.
However, while still quite young her parents removed to this country, and settled in
Kingston, N. Y. While visiting in Kansas, Katrina, wh-o had frequently meditated on
the beauties of a nurse's life, learned of an excellent training school in Kansas City,
Mo., which had an excellent reputation in many states, and so at length, dear old Barkie
came. She was without doubt one of the sweetest and best girls that ever came to us,
and this feeling I assure you was maintained by us all. Katherine Barkman was a true
nurse and a lady, and what better can be said of a woman? After her work was fin-
ished at the University Hospital Training Sch-ool, she nursed private cases for a year,
after which she took post-graduate work at Cook County Hospital, Chicago and also
took the course of Hospital Economics at Columbia University, N. Y. Then dear Bark-
man became superintendent of nurses at University Hospital Training School, where
she remained for three years. Then she became the wife of Dr. Composium Cathcart
Cost, who occupied the Chair of Surgery in U. M. C. Barkie told me this when I met
her not long since in Naples. They have a beautiful young daughter, who frequently
visits me, as -she spends her summers in the study of art and music here in my coun-
try. I must laugh as I recall our girlhood larks and escapades. How she would climb
up the fire escape to avoid, well, I won't say what, at nights and the fudge she used to
drop out of the window to the Medics. You see she really was sweet and good, and so
Miss Forrester never suspected her of such pranks. Why actually one night we let her
out of the window on a sheet to take a moonlight stroll. I wonder if Miss F. ever found
that out, well, as I have frequently, and perhaps ambiguously said, 'iSuch is life."
Carrie Gibbon-s was a Kansas girl from Coffeyville. We called her Coffey most
of the time, but occasionally when she was in charge, temporarily, of the operating
rooms, we always addressed her in our very best, quiet, dignified manner as Mis-s
Gibbons. She was certainly devoted to her profession, and though many and varied
were the attractions, both medically and financially, which used to persuade her to de-
sert her chosen work, she would have none of them until, to the -dismay and consterna-
tion of her friends, and she had many, she became interested in a widowed M. D. with
seven children. He also owned a large sanitarium at Eudora, Kansas. Coffey managed
the entire combination so successfully that now they rival Battle Creek in plant and
Far away in Merry England years and years ago, near Hereford, in one of those
beautiful old country places, was bo-rn a tiny, blue eyed, golden haired baby. From this
tiny mite she grew into a pretty, dainty girl, the pride -of her home. At the age of 16
she came to America to pay a visit to her brother. Before leaving England she was very
much interested in hospital work and after a few months in the United States she began
to long again to be "on duty." She at length came to the University Training School,
and we certainly were very fortunate in having her to complete our class. Last but not
least by any means. After graduating she returned home for a short visit. Merry
England was entirely too small for a full-fledged American trained nurse. For several
years she held an important position in one of the large hospitals in Boston, and is now
in charge of the U. S. Army Nurses Corp at Washington, D. C.
Thus we have chosen our many and varied paths, from a number of care-free girls
we are now placed to compete with our fellow men, an-d as I sit here gazing on the won-
ders of the firmament, on the marvelous handiwork of our Maker, my mind reverts
backward and I cannot refrain from wondering if our dear Miss Forrester and Daddy
Frankenburger are not proud of the class of 1908. I' B.

fi N the year of our Lord, IQO7, the various birds of America held a con-
vention at Washington, D. C. Kansas and Missouri were well sup-
' plied with representatives, while VVyoming and Montana were also
represented wholly in size if not in number. The purpose of the con-
vention was to send flying delegates over the country in order to prevent
the entire extermination of the human race. Livs must be saved, the
victims of suicides, the injured, the murdered, the diseased and suffering must be
cared for. What did the young, flighty, wild jays know about such work? The
fifteen selected delegates started from Washington in a large balloon with airship
parachute attachment. They did not know where they were going, but they were
on their way, searching for an opportunity to light on some safe spot. They
were, however, sailing through the air westward very rapidly. The balloon was
nearing Kansas City when the signal shot was fired for the safety-rope to be
cut. The airship fell about twenty feet earthward before the parachute opened,
then they floated slowly and steadily toward mother earth. If you could have
viewed closely the contents of that airship parachute you would have certainly
compared it with a nest of young birdlings with their mouths wide open waiting
for the mother bird to return with the worms. But the flock in the boat waited
only a second to see what had happened, when an odor of chloroform penetrated
the air, coming directly from the University Hospital, and quite overpowered
the almost featherless flock in the airship. Upon awakening from a peaceful and
dreamless sleep they found themselves in the emergency ward of the University
Hospital. This gave Father Frankenburger an opportunity to seize the bunch that
now appear in neat blue and white feathers and are referred to as the 4'Class of
191o.', When the term of three long years is ended, and this flock of beautiful
young birds graduate as skilled nurses, the states from which they were sent will
declare that their people have been well represented and will join in one grand
chorus to sing:
"Here's to the class of 191o,
Nlfho can stand three years undaunted,
While the lonely four of 19o9,
The two-year class, look stunted.
"So here's to the class of IQIO,
Who number five times three, '
And if you can't guess, we can impress
That the class is of University."

The society stands for well rounded manhood and aims to turn -out from U. M. C.
broad minded and well balanced men as well as true physicians and surgeons, and the
Aesculapian Society feels a modest pride in a large number of honorable, successful
practitioners of medicine as her alumni, comprising a large majority of the men grad-

The Y. M. C. A. Of the University Medical College was organized December, 1902,
by F. B. Erwin, C. C. Kerr, W. M. Hoel, C. W. Lawrence, A. G. Swaney, J. D. Van
Buskirk, Messrs. Myers, Welles and Garrison, with -C. W. Lawrence as president.
Devotional exercises were held each. Sunday afternoon at the college during the
college years 1902-3 and 1903-4.
The first Bible study class was organized in September, 1904, with J. D. Van Bus-
kirk as leader.
It has been- the custom each year to organize one or more classes, and follow a
systematic course of Bible study. Each year the association publishes a college hand-
book containing the schedule in connection with other valuable information. It has been
our pleasure to conduct an employment bureau, a student register and a boarding direc-
tory. The association stands ready to welcome the new student at the beginning of the
college year and early in the session holds its annual reception that the new students
may not only become better acquainted with each other, but also with the upper class
Considering the fact that the new Central Association building is only five blocks
from the college, our members are not on-ly fortunate in being in close proximity to the
advantages that it offers, but are admitted at a special rate.
Our aim is to raise the moral and spiritual tone of the institution, to point out
the life of Jesus Christ as lan. example of upright, honorable living.
'To assist in developing men, not only in the principles of the practice of medicine
and surgery, but also in character.
The leading of young men to make the chief aim of their lives, not only the relief
of suffering, but to point others to higher and better things.

WENTWORTH MILITARY ACADEMY.
A field goal during the first five minutes of play, constituted the only score and
won for us. These results, however, do not justly represent the relative strength of the
two teams. Our boys, realizing they were heavier, exerted a greater effort on the of-
fense, and repeatedly carried the ball the length of the field, but invariably found the
opponent line impenetrable when a three-yard gain would have meant a touchdown. The
field was heavy from rain, and to this condition the small score was no doubt due.
UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS.
The result of this game was a complete surprise to the Razorbacks, as well as to
the students of this school. It took us just two minutes to score a goal from the field,
and five minutes more to plant the ball beyond their goal posts. Our team repeatedly
tore holes in the Swamp-dwellers' line and clearly demonstrated the fact that a Razor-
back is not necessarily a true exponent of the pigskin.
' SOUTHWESTERN COLLEGE.
Our boys began like a whirlwind, and before the Winfield Rooters could realize
that their rustic heroes were up against a squad of live ones, we had 6 points to our
credit. During the last few minutes of play, however, they got away for a touchdown,
but not before Lane, the referee and a tried friend of the Winfield coach, had sent Smith
and Robinson to the side lines, convicted of charges, the nature of which not even
VValter Camp has the most remote idea.
ST. MARY'S COLLEGE.
Our only Waterloo of the season was presented to us in a sportsmanlike- package
and we have nought but praise for the donors.
Throughout the first half it was hard to find a spectator willing to jeopardize his
long green on the Kansas boys, and not without reason, for repeatedly we carried the
ball to within five and ten yards of their goal line, either to fumble or to play off side
and be penalized. On two other occasions our rabbit's foot played us false. Once with-
fir lm sf
0 in two yards
of the line we lost the ball, and on another occasion we managed to carry
it over and then allowed it to get away on a fatal fumble.
St. Mar s scored first one a pretty forward pass, next on a fluke and finally on a
goal from the field. The fluke was the result of a misunderstanding. The umpire whis-
tled an offside on one of our men and mistaking the whistle for that of the referee, no

The athletic association was established in 1905, for the purpose of directing
and financing all field and track events, and for the fostering of the athletic spiri
in the college.
Officers are elected annually, and managers of the various branches of sport
are appointed by this body. Their decision on matters of internal contest is final.
F antiquity of origin is to be considered as constituting a claim to honor, the game
of football stands pre-eminently among the sports of the English-speaking people.
For at least 600 years full-blooded people have loved the action, the rush and the
struggle of the manly game. Kings with their edicts, divines with their sermons, wits
with their caustic ridicule, phychologists with their weighty theorie, and scholars with
their cultured -scorn have lent their talents to its prosecution, yet its defense with no
assistance, other than the spontaneous approval of two nations of action-loving men,
has so completely triumphed that the game has been handed down to- us intact, still
popular and bearing the marks of a brilliant future.
All things have had their beginning and from what I have learned of the game
of our remote forefathers, the Greeks deserve the credit of the origin of our present
national winter sport. They were the first to play a game with a ball, the object of which
was to advance it by force beyond the opponent's line or goal. The rules were simple
and admitted of great latitude, namely, any means in their power.
From Greece the game made its way tsomewhat changedl into England several
centuries later, and was there, in spite of its disfavor at court, nursed and developed at
R b College until in the winter of 1873-74 it assumed new proportions in the form of
an intercollegiate contest between Oxford and Cambridge. From this date its progress
d lo ment was truly meteoric ln an incredably short time American universi-
and eve p .
ties had embraced it with open arms, and had incorporated it in their curriculum-s.
Like all importations it made its
thorough course of naturalization,
preciating its possibilities, it had practically assumed its present form.

Lecturer on Anesthetics.
RETROSPECTIVE glance at the past fifteen years shows a most wonderful spread
in the playing and knowledge of football in the West. At the beginning of that
+ period no one except he be a student at his state university or a chance vi-sitor
to the university town, had ever witnessed a contest. I remember very distinctly how
vague an idea was mine of college football. While en route to enter college I was ap-
proached by older students and asked if I should try for the team. I replied in the
affirmative and, having in mind the football player in high schools, announced myself
as sure to make the team. Whether to properly reduce my pride, or because latent
possibilities were seen in me, I was escorted to the field' on the first practice day. The
captain placed me at guard on the scrubs and said my duty was to always keep in front
of my opponent. My attempts to do this were certainly ludicrous. Think, I had abso-
lutely not the vaguest idea of football, its rules, nor the name of the positions! My op-
ponent, a 200-pounder, would calmly toss me aside, but the novice would bob up serenely,
always in front, even though he stooped to tie his shoe or walked to the side lines to
speak with a friend. Know, too, you armored knight, the players on that team had to
supply their own uniform. Mine on the first day consisted of a flannel shirt, civilian
trousers docked at the knee, and low shoes. H-owever, I do not mean this as a personal
history and only tell you of my early experience that you may know the dense ignorance
prevailing even amon-g athletically inclined youths concerning college football.
In those days, 1892, the game wa-s played at the K. U., Washburn and Baker, they
forming a triangular league and each team meeting its opponents twice during a season.
Missouri University had a team, the Kansas City Y. M. C. A. played in a desultory
fashion. The University of Nebraska and Doane College at Crete maintained elevens,
the latter only furnishing practice for the State. In Colorado the State School of Mines
and the State University had only a rudimentary knowledge of the game. Probably the
Denver Athletic Club gave the highest class exhibition of football in the West, as its
players were composed of Eastern gridiron warriors. The Universities of Kansas Ne-
braska, Missouri and Iowa were easily disposed of by this aggregation. Of the few re-
maining teams, Baker was the only one to make the annual trip to Denver and then
always amply avenged her sister schools by trouncing the ex-stars.
In 1891-2 the formation of plays and position of players was decidedly different'
from our modern ideas. Of course, the beefwas put in the line, but the heaviest man
was always center. The guards and tackles were required to be men of weight, but
speed was not requisite. On the beginning of play the defending team was placed much
as it is today. The offense lined up and started with a formation called the "gridiron,"
This placed ten men shoulder t-o shoulder on the line of battle. They charged diagonally
down the field with a half-back in the rear carrying the ball and watching for an open-
.ing for a quick dash.
After the preliminary encounter, the teams lined up opposite eachother, the de-
fense with nine men on the line, the quarter backing up, and the full playing safety. The
ends played in close, but properly stayed out of plays until the runner was definitely
located. The line played a close formati-on, the open line of defense not being adopted
for several years after it came in vogue farther East. The offense placed their backs

about two feet from the line. Their repertoire of plays was a quick dash into an opening
between guard and tackle, a slow push by everybody into center, or a half-back run
around his own end. When the idea was introduced from the East that the back should
be sent around the opposite end with interference formed by his mates, it was thought
a failure, as it seemed to be a loss of time in gaining the far wing. I almost neglected
to mention the method of passing the ball from center to quarter. It was not passed
between the center's legs, but 'to one side. This was often varied by rolling it back with
1893 saw the backs placed several feet from the line and running behind inter-
ference. The flying wedge was also in-troduced successfully, only to be abo1lished a few
years later. There was a great cry of its being a man-killer, but I believe it did not de-
serve this reputation. While an inconsistent ground gainer, it was spectacular and
pleased the onlookers. Briefly, the quarter advanced to center of field and held the ballg
fifteen' yards back and twenty to thirty yards ap-art were two wings, one o-f three and
the other of seven men. On a signal they advanced rapidly and compactly, converging
into a wedge on reaching the quarter, who either kept the ball or passed it to one of his
team mates. The man with the ball was protected as far down the field as possible by
this rapidly moving formation. From the defensive side the speediest man was sent to
break the wedge by falling under its apex. This wa-s the only player on whom the flying
wedge was particularly hard, as he was usually a light man and had to t-umble the op-
posing heavy center and guards.
1894-5 saw the awakening of footfall in this section. The villager began to have
some idea of the game and even planned to see the Thanksgiving contest. The smaller
colleges formed teams and arranged matches with the scrubs of the older organizations.
The state universities engaged Eastern coaches, learned the new formation-s and be-
came more highly finished gridiron artists. 1
In my opin-ion, since 1895-6, except in the kicking department, the game had not
changed materially, until of course the opening of the play by forward passes and ten
yards- to gain. Many would criticize this opini-on, but I am sure I will find a considerable
number of supporters, and I further contend, in a great many departments, the players
were more skilfull befo-re '97 than since that date. In the olden time it wasn't popular
to sustain injuries, substitutes were few and untrained, and were 'used only when posi-
tively imperative. I recall one college which played two consecutive seasons with only
one substitute. Naturally, the men were in perfect condition and considered it an honor
to go through the entire season without losing a moment's play. Tackling was the par-
ticular department where the old-time-rs -showed their superiority to the modern ex-
ponents. How many games you have seen in the last ten years where most of the tack-
ling was of the affectionate caress variety. Why, in the old days they had to legislate
against our low tackling by a rule which forbid tackling below the knees "intention-
Now, a word of the modern game. It is still the most absorbing sp-ort, not only
of the college world, but of every athletic -club, high school, town and village: each has
its eleven, and the village beau considers himself an authority on all departments of
the game. Personally, I am sorry to- see football played outside of college, as the natural
tendency in athleic clubs and town teams is toward the importation of players. The
breeding of professionalism amo-ngst youths, under and recent graduates is to be
While I applaud the brilliance of the modern game and the wisdom of the powers
that be, who have inaugurated the open style, yet from the standpoint of a "has been,"
it is inferior to that of my time. The forward pass is sometimes a ground gainer, more
often a time loser. The successful player requires the attributes and skill of a basket
ball player. Never will there be anything more thrilling and soul-satisfying than a
plunge into the line, a tackle back or a cross back, with a good hard protest from the
opponent for every foot gained. And it wasn't brutal, in spite of a yellow press! In
many years, football playing, I have seen few serious injuries, and slugging almost never.
So, in summing up, enthusiastic as I am in watching today's game, give me the
old-timers with their sprinting, fierce rushes, and low tackling. Had you seen Matteson,
Champlain and Williamson of Kansas, Young of Missouri, Flippin of Nebraska, Taylor,
Pendleton and Allen -of Baker, you would grasp what I try to convey about speed,
strength and agility. However, retrospection is of no -avail-time will no-t turn back-
and the writer is branded as a dreamer, living in memories of other days.
ENTURIES before Coronus had given to the world a son destined to become the
nucleus of the grandest fraternity of alleviators known- to civilization, this af-
T fliction had invaded Pagan society and so moulded its thought as to cause its
cardinal symptom Cgladitorial combatl to become the sport of kings. Therefore, in con-
sidering the etio-l-ogy of so venerable, virulent and contagious a disease we must accept
the germ theory, and of necessity revert to the very fly leaves of anthropology for a
beginning conception of its primary incubation.
'Now at the time of the consummation of those things recorded in the lst chapter
in Genesis, Father Adam was too busy contemplating the beauty of the resultant meta-
morphos-is of his lost rib to give any analytical or prophylactic thought to this vegetable
micro-organism so fresh from the hand of its Maker, and as there was then existing no
Pasteurs, Kochs, Devonce, Hertzlers -Cross' or Millers, armed with germicides and
microscopes-, to parole paradise, it was quite easy for this busy little germ to inoculate
our amorous an-cestor, and through him transmit itself to the entire human family.
Pathologic Anatomy-As yet no autopsy has confirmed a diagnosis of athletitis,
and it may be here stated that the concen-sus of opinion' substantiates the belief that it
is not a fatal malady.
' Symptoms-The onset is gradual and insidious, being marked by a period of splen-
did health, blood showing a high per cent of hemoglobin, appetite excessive, digestion
rapid, heart strong, no- accentuated sounds, muscle tone high, accompanied by a pro-
gressive increase in size of muscular apparatus, pulmonary enlargement with an in-
crease of function, a -marked progressive loss of fatigue, a characteristic absence of
malaise, memory and reasoning faculty improved, a greater ability to control impulse, a
pronounced feeling of optimism, good fellowship and co-nsiderativeness. ln brain, cen-
ters of pessimim, jealousy, vindictiven-ess and selfishness totally detroyed. Other symp-
toms there a-re in abundance but lack of space precludes the possibility of their publica-
tion, but upon application to the writer they will be gratuitously given.
Prognosis and Treatment-Complete recovery never occurs, but palliative treat-
ment such as the removal of the patient from the scene of contest may bring about a
temporary cassation of some symptoms. However, like malignant growths, they will
eventually return, and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

il p lgerznnnvl nf lglagrra
QT Diemer-A veteran player both in and behind the line, a good kicker, a sure and swift
Vi tackler, and can be depended on to advance the ball. He appears to better advan-
Ml tage behind the line, but is a consistant, hard player, and capable in any position
Kilbourn-A faultless tackler, -strong and heavy, with a perfect knowledge of the game.
A real bad man on defense.
N James-An eccentric player, quick after fumbles and remarkably fast in getting down
Nl under punts. A good man in every sense of the word. Captain of next year's
Johnson-A stocky man, fast on his feet, quick at charging and getting down the field.
HG Constantly worrying his opponent by some trick.
'll 'Calloway-A tower of strength at guardg his 210 pounds making him a valuable man in
A the line. A valuable man who wears his head throughout the game. Will be seen
again at guard next year.
'Haigler-A strong heavy man, a stranger to the rattles, and can be depended on to
pass the ball accurately. Played in every game of the season without making a
W single bad pass.
tl Pond-Cut his first teeth on a nose guard, helped take the famous medic team into camp
back in the 90s. Thought to have been a has been until this year when he came
ill back to the game with his years of peut up energy, and at tackle won the title
W of 'fWorst of the bad men." Has- a head and knows how to use it.
l Getman-A clever little quarter, and good as any man of his weightg works his team well
and understands the fine points of the game.
Smith-Twice captain, half back for three seasons, as nervy a little Irishman as ever
wore the black and gold, excells in every department of the game. The teams
success this season was largely due to his untiring efforts.
XVinslow-A fast man with the ball, good at blocking and getting down the field, a
good running mate for Smith.
Rhodes-Sub End. A swift, nervy player who was handicapped by his weight, fifteen
pounds more and Dusty would star with the best of them.
First-A strong, nervy youngster who subbed at end. A man of whom much is expected
Ireland-Sub tackle. Another beginner of much promise, fast, a good tackler and a
head for the game.
Robinson-Sub guard. A strong, heavy man, who had little chance to show his met-
tle this season. VVill be Callaway's mate at guard next year.
Edmonson-A raw-boned Missourian, who, with little effort, could make good at any
position in the line, but he is such a diligent student that Mars may find trouble
winning him over.
Price, R. P.-A tower of strength whose cyclonic vehemence of expression strikes ter-
ror to the heart of his opponent, unable to get out much through stress of other
business. "He is married now." ,
Henry Witten-A star in every sense of the word whose lustrous radiance was some-
what missed by his absence on the gridiron, owing to pressure of his restaurant
business at 907 E. 10th.
Duckett-A halfback of uncomm-on promise but for the fact that Mrs. D. objected to
having those curly locks of Claude's pulled by some alien he might have made the
all Western this year. '
Griffin-A good back whose religious duties somewhat interferred with his training.
His Bible contains 7 or 11 pages. In the game between the Sophs and Juniors,
he made touchdown after touchdown.
Percy Ridler-The giant guard will not be with us next year as he is now a Senior.
Percy learned the game on an all star team of which Toni Thumb was captain.
Von Cannon has filed application for Callaway's job, should that player shift position,
Harry Morton will be back in school next year.
Papa Fletcher of fleet footed fame has announced his intention to become a candidate
for quarter next fall.
To those who have never been closely in touch with the internal workings of a
f otball team, it is hard to realize that the duties of the managers are other than to
cut classes, and occasionally issue a requisition for a shin guard, but to the 1n1t1ated

THOMAS WYATT, M. D.
Assistant to Chair of Laryngology.
IWI N September, 1895, there appeared on the field of the old Exposition Park eighteen
! or twenty young men of brawn and great stature. They were clad in an ill-
assorted array of football clothing and looked very little like a champion team.
Upon investigation, I learned that they were students of the University Medical College
who had decided that spouting anatomy and sawing in the bone yard was not exercise
commensurate with their physical demands and had determined to work off their su-
perfluous energy in this mild form of sport.
Ralph Light, alias "Tub," had been elected captain, having played football before
at Baker University. Captain Light was a magnificent specimen of manhood, standing
about six feet and weighing 2101 pounds.
Along with him were Dr. Lincolnfelter, now of Excelsior Springs, Mo., Dr. Fred
O'Donnell of Junction City, Kas., and Dr. Lapp, at present one of our city fathers.
These men I remember Well, as they were great football enthusiasts and had done
much towards organizing the team in the college. They worked faithfully that season
without the aid of a coach, other than that of the men on the team who had played in
other schools. They owed most of their practice to the Central High School boys, who
worked with them each aftern-oon. While this eleven did not develop any sensational
teamwork, or Win many of the few games played, an-d none of the i-mportant o-nes that
year, it served to develop good men and a college spirit that has never died and never
Next fall the nucleus of this first team was strengthened by a number of new men,
among whom were Dr. Edward Pendleton, the incomparable guard, formerly of Baker
'Universityg Clay Allen, alias 'tKid Allen," also of Baker, Dr. Leon Le-wis of this city
and Mr. William Buchholtz. These veterans of the game, each of them stars, so
strengthened the team that they won most of this season's games and defeated Kansas
State University, then the Western champions.
During this year they were coached by Mr. Charles Taylor, a former Baker Uni-
versity man and also Uni-on Coll'ege's star end. These victories served to give the
U. M. C. team a standing in Western football and enabled them to arrange the strongest
schedule of any Western team for the following season.
The fall of 1897-98 found, in addition to the men on hand, Dr. Harry L. Heller,
wearing the red and gold of U. M. C. Dr. Heller had been Baker's star half-back for
two seasons, captain and half-back on the Denver Athletic Club's peerless team for two
years, and came to U. M. C. with a reputation made and only remaining to be upheld.
This reputation he certainly not only upheld, but added greatly to. His cool judgment
in the directing of plays during a game, his ability and field judgment in practice, and
his brilliant personal playing had never before been witnessed by a Western football
I have seen football in many parts of the country and it is my opinion that the peer
of Dr. Heller never existed in his position in the back field. With the addition of this
tower of strength and one or two other go-od men to replace those who had graduated,
the team of 1897-98 was certainly a victorious one.
They added to their victories, Kansas State University, William Jewell College,
the Haskell Indians, Missouri State University an-d Nebraska State University.
These victories made them the champion of the Middle West and created an en-
thusiasm among the town people that promised great crowds in the future and a proper
financial support. H I
In connection with the fin-ancial end of football I wish to state that the college
had been more than liberal in 'its support of the team, and equipment supplied was
second to none used by Western players.
At the beginning of 1898-99 the Athletic board engaged the services of C. C.
Morris of New Haven, Conn., to take charge of the coaching department. Under the
direction of Mr. Morris and Dr. Heller the team was again victorious, and again de-
feated the teams of the year before and remained the strongest team in the West.
ln 1899-1900 the red and gold were victorious in and around Kansas City and the
Middle West, but in attempting to defeat the Denver Athletic Club at Denver, and the
Colorado State School of Mines at Boulder, Colo., found a handicap in the rareness of the
atmosphere that proved fatal.
In the season of 1900-01 U. M. C. was greatly handicapped by the loss of many of
her stars, but under the coaching of Dr. Harry Heller and the captaincy of Charles- C.
Toland of California the team made a creditable showing, and the only games of im-
portance lost were those with Texas University at Austin, Texas, and with Texas M. and
M. College at Bryan, Texas. These games were played after long trips and in a semi-
tropical country, which, to a great extent, accounts for these defeats.
From the season of 1900 to the present day the University Medical College team
has been greatly handicaped by not being able to conform to the different college rules,
especially the rule that allows a man to play only four years in all, and cannot play his
freshman year. As our college course was but three years until a short time ago, and
as most of our men have played on their college teams before taking up Medical study,
one can easily see the hardship it worked, bo-th with the team and the schedule of
games. With the fine showing made by this year's team, however, under the able
coaching of Mr. Webb Smith, we are hoping and looking forward to the time when
U. M. C. will take her old place- in the football world of the Middle West.

lHAT is a medical college? What is a medical student? A medical college is a
E, place where the student gets wise-to lots of things. A medical student is a be-
ing that exists-merely, and changes his shirt twice a week and his room and
boarding place three times during the same period.
But, talking about the lair of the embryo doctor, it would be real funny if it were
not so sad to think of the pleasant inconveniences he undergoes.
The average U. M. C. man starts in at the beginning of his Freshman year on the
third floor iso I am toldj and it is peculiar that the higher he advances in his classes
the lower he comes down in living apartments. This is not as mirthful as it seems, for
the Senior year frequently finds him in the cellar.
The way he gets located is laughable to any one except the student. Arriving in
town with his old valiseg new trunk, best neckltieg all his "legal tenderu in his pocketg
several apple sized lumps in his throatg besides a glistening lachyrmal exudation in his
off eye, he sets out to find his new abode. Attracted by a flashing placard, "Furnished
Roomsf, and thinking it is something of that sort he wants, he summons all his courage,
or whatever he has that resembles courage, and proceeds to wring the neck of the door
bell or push the button at the portal entrance of the castle. The gentle rattle of No.
f2'sg the flurry of skirts and open flies the door and so does the 6X8 mouth of the sixteen,
maybe thirty-six year old child the never was good at guessing age with powder on itl
and yells, "Ma!" here's a man," as if he were the first rooster of that breed of fowls
she had ever seen. Then she smiles at him. He grows dizzy and for the first time for-
gets Edith and his vows of eternal constancy. At this juncture his future landlady ap-
pears on the scene to say, "What is it sir?" He explains, "a room," "got any?" "See
sign." She answers in the affirmative and says, "walk this way." But he can't to save
his head for women have a gait peculiar to themselves, besides he noticed that this
one's feet don't track. However, he takes her as she means and makes the first flight
of stairs in good condition and with credit to himself, but in a darkened way
of the third floor he stumbles over a bucket half filled with bedbug annihilator. The
bucket slops over with its contents and the student with apology. He says it is an un-
pardonable blunder, and for once the landlady agrees with him, strange to say. At thi-s
point a door is swung open and for the first time he sees a closet with a bed in it. But
if he is credulou-s to all that he hears it is the warmest room in winterg the coo-lest one
in summer that is to be had. CLater he swears that the opposite is truel. A tear creeps
down the good lady's cheek as -she tells him that it would be occupied at present only the
poor fellow who dwelt there last suddenly died and that his spirit has gone to test the
realities of an unknown world. He believes what she says about the spirit all right, all
right, but he stimulates his vision to pierce the darkercorners of the space for owing
to the peculiar odor that eminates through the open door he is not so sure that the body
has been so remotely removed. But he agrees to locate and upon the price per month
ibut learns afterward that three weeks make a monthl, a sum he thinks too much, but
is assured that it would be cheap at half the price.
He then starts out in search of the Dean. Enters the office that corresponds to
the number given in the catalogue and asks the office girl if his Lordship is in. For in-
terrupting the tender blossom in the perusal of the latest novel Cfor she was just where
the hero was about to caress the heroine for the first time, not the secondl, he gets a
blunt "yes" and a look that makes him feel that the search for the North Pole is over
and that the bloomin' thing is sticking down his back. He waits his hour turn with
Jobine patience and is finally ushered into the presence of him who wields the destiny
of medical students. After a seven-minute and thirteen-second interview, he is again
upon the street and throws away his purse. Why, what is the use in keeping it? He
has been to see the Dean.
But it is high time for our hungry young friend to find an eating place. A res-
taurant is the usual haunt of him who learns the Aesculapian art. For there he may
order what he wishes? Maybe. If he does it is wonderful what freaks his fancy takes.
Vrlhy he orders Irish stew instead of ham and eggs has always been a puzzle to us. And
why on the morning after a good night out with the boys he sits with drooping eyes but
without breakfast before the eight o'clock professor and when the doctor mistakes his

Just why flies cling about a medics boarding place is a question that no one seems
ready to answer. It shows bad judgment on the part of the fly. It is all right to be

Queer how prone the college man is to sing. Sing he will. It must be that he
does so here because he is not allowed to make an ugly noise at home. "Sweet Ade-
line," is a popular class song on a cloudy day. How fortunate for Adeline she need not
listen to the tuneful pinings of poor Joe. Strange how every man sings in his own key.

Some times there are hardly enough keys to go round. Those who listen but cannot
see must necessarily presume that the whole bunch is singing in whis-key.
But Oh, the busy, busy grind of him who learns the healing art., Days and nights
on anatomy. Why was manfs body made so complex and his mind so simple. But
chemistry. Speak of that once and then forever hold your peace. Who can straighten
out therapeutics without getting his mind in a whirl. Why study pediatrics any way?
Already money is too scarce and children are too plentiful.
But never mind our sorrows will soon be forgotten. And by the way so will be
the chemistry. However, while yet in school some men seek to quiet their trouble, and
to drown it seems to be the conventional method. Those good old nights when you
don't go home till morning. But we do not approve of ranting riot and roaring dissi-
pation. A little spirit may be all right but what a pity any one can get too much of
such a good thing. A man with more stomach than brain might get jagged before he
knows it, but once his equilibri-um is disturbed even a chump should be aware of the
"When your heels hit hard and your head feels queer,
And your thoughts rise up like foam on beerg
When your knees are weak and your voice is strong,
And you laugh like thunder at a durn fool so-ng,
You're drunk, by gosh, you're drunk."
But the will be doctor -seldom goes wr-on-g when out for a -social time, because he
knows the evil effects of alcohol. It is his unwise visiting friends such as Anheuser
Busch and Bud Weiser who drink too deeply fro-m the cup that cheers. And no matter
which it becomes our student's solemn duty to see home in safety he finds it difficult
to lead either Ann or Bud and yet refrain from walking in well marked curves.
It seems though, that time has passed rapidly on, as time will do, and many are
nearing their college end. We look back with pride upon our moral integrityg happy to
know that our methods have always been above suspicion and that our grades are with-
out taintg glad to realize that no man has betrayed the trust of his professors and insulted
his own dignity by stooping to the vile art of "ponying."-Who said "Splash"?

Or It Pays to Advertise.
It was a gala day in the City of the Kaw. A committee composed of the foremost
citizens of the town, in their frock coats and silk hats, met the Washington Special as
the President of the United States stepped from the train. Long rows of automobiles
were waiting at the depot carriage entrance, to take the Chief Executive to Convention
Hall, where thousands were in waiting to congratulate him on his good judgment in se-
lecting navy surgeons to command the hospital ships of the navy.
The procession of machines was headed by a limousine containing the President
and Dr. Skinoky-the president of Kansas City's leading bank.
The buildings all along were festooned with national colors.
As the President's party swung into Walnut street at Ninth, cheer after cheer went
up from a crowd out in front of a large building which had red, white and blue electric
lights ornamenting the second floor.
The Chief Executive nodded to Dr. Skinoky his appreciation of the cordial recep-
tion and commented on the beautiful arrangement of colored lights on Convention Hall.
Dr. Skinoky assured him that this was not Convention Hall but was the Fudge
Building and that the different colored lights were simply the decorations of the suite
of offices of Dr. Claude J. Von Witten. Then Dr. Skinoky related the story of how the
advertising doctor is made.
"Five years ago," he said, "there lived in Pee Dee, Mo., a model youth by the
name of Von Witten, who earned his daily bread by honest toil in the coal mines of that
vicinity. He was considered the best Workman on the track and when pay day came
his envelope fairly bulged with his fortnight's earnings. The merry maidens of the camp
soon learned how industrious this lad was and they longed to know him better.
One evening as young Von Witten was returning from the mines, carrying his
dinner pail, his pick swung over his shoulder and his oily cap jauntily placed on one
side of his head, he met Lottie, the Poor Saleslady. Claude smiled and threw out his
chest as he saw Lottie, but he failed to notice a small pebble in his path, which betrayed.
him at this eventful moment and turned his foot, suddenly sending him sprawling in the
dust. The dinner pail rolled down the road but his pick fell on his hand causing a small
wound. Lottie, seeing he was hurt took her kerchief from around her head and ban-
aged the injured hand. The couple then strolled down the road together. Lottie seemed
worried, finally -she said, Claude, why don't you study to be a doctor, so you can wrap
up people's hands when they are hurt, instead of trudging along working yourself to
death and never getting any pleasure out of life?" The youth brightened and said,
t'Well, I had never thought of that, though I have read our Family Do-ctor Book through
several times and I found it very interestingf, They talked this subject over for -several
even-ings, finally Lottie convinced him that he would soon be rich if he would go to
the city and get in some big d-octor's office. It would only be a matter of a short time,
she thought, until patients would flock to him and when his fortune was made he would
return to Pee Dee and make her his own.
The next pay day at the mines he bade all of his old comrades good-bye and took
the train for the city. There he found he could get a paper route to Day 1115 GXDGHSGS
through the first year in the Medical College.
The first year he arose every morning at four o'clock and peddled his papers. Aft-
er breakfast he would study until school time. He gave no attention to anything but
his work and his studies. The result of his first year's work was that he passed in all
of his subjects except five. He applied a little more steam and succeeded in getting
through on the second examination after having been tutored for two months during the
summer. The remaining month of vacation he decided to spend in Pee Dee. He, there-
fore, sent the following notice to his home paper, "The Weekly Pee Dee Pifflef' t'Dr.
Claude J. Von Witten formerly of this city, but now one of the leading physicians and
surgeons of the State will be at the Pee Dee Hotel for three weeks and all of the sick
and afflicted will be cured of any disease if they will call on this wonderful doctor, who
effects the most marvelous cures. Dr. Von Witten charges only S150 for the first treat-
ment, all other treatments will be paid for when patient is cured. Do not fail to con-
sult this doctor as he will be here only a short time as he has offices in sixty-five of the
principal cities of the country."
As there had never been any regular physicians in Pee Dee, Von made money fast.
In fact when he returned to College the second year he was very much transformed in
appearance. Instead of the homespun and Scotch cap of Freshman year, he appeared
in the latest creation that exclusive tailors and haberdashers could furnish.
Von finally came to the conclusion that it was useless to attend lectures-that
knowledge of medicine was not what was necessary to make money in this age of graft
cures. He resolved to invent some new method. He quit College before the Sophomore
annual examinations and put up a modest office in the Fudge Building. Von Witten
found that Eddyites and Dowieites had worked the religious fanatical fake cures until
that field was covered, he therefore rented more office space and advertised his sup-
posed wonderful discovery which he called "Suggesto-Therapinef'
He hired all of the surplus stenographers and advertising agents in the city to
send out circulars until the whole second floor of the Fudge Building was filled with
his self-praising bureaus.
The m-oney began to roll in so fast that he is not only the largest bank depositor in
the city but has erected five twenty-story buildings on Tenth street in addition to the
fact that he has just furnished fifteen millions to the government for the Panama Canal
To get back to Lottie, the Poor Saleslady who helped to mould his career-she
waited in vain for him to return and claim her, but alas! Von had fallen in love' with
Edna, the Pretty Typewriter. This so enraged poor Lottie that she began reading
"Science and Healing" and in order to wreak revenge on her former beau-she rushed
to Kansas City and started a rival cure concern in the Whelat Belt Bank Building at
Thirty-first and Roost avenue. L
As soon as Von found Lottie was getting part of his graft he gave up Edna, mar
ried Lottie, consolidated their offices and both lived luxuriously ever after.

A Shirt Fiail lgarahe
1 T was at the close of an Indian Summer day, in the latter part of '07, after a fierce
and determined struggle for supremacy on their home gridiron, that the hearts of
'-- the U. M. C. boys swelled and burned within them, and their eye-s sparkled from
flushed faces. "They had met the enemy and the enemy was theirs." The shades of eve
had brought out the lights along the Way and darkness had called forth the "stars.',
There was tumult and confusion in and about the University Pharmacy, where
the b-oys were accustomed to congregate and loaf between classes and p-articipate in
a much needed smoke for a few minutes. "What's doing," asked two or three late ar-
rivals, as they observed- a large number of their pals pushing, tip-toeing and crowding
toward a common center with heads together and noses fairly rubbing, the ones on the
edge intertwining arms across the shoulder-s of his neighbors. It finally leaked out and
was noised about that the neighboring stores were to be raided and robbed of empty
boxes, barrels, loose boards, excelsior and any inflammable material that could be legiti-
mately confiscated for such occasions, and a bonfire was to be displayed in front of the
college. Boxes and barrels, sign b-oards and planks, excelsior and papers began emerg-
ing from all quarters. There was a. cracking and popping, snapping and breaking and
soon the darkness was driven- to the far corners of the street, and the neighboring gas
and electric lights were made to loo-k pale and- sickly in the glare. From afar the by-
standers, having been disturbed in the quietude of their homes by the tumult in the
street and congregating here and there in shirt sleevs and- bare headed, beheld a weird
-and startling change of -scenes that recalled reminiscences of Dante's "Inferno.H In the
meantime it had been arranged that the fire department or any other annoying servants
of the municipality should have business in other parts of the city. Explosives were
placed upon the street car tracks. Approaching cars halted and hesitated, like shying
horses, as if figuring what course to pursue to evade the devilis play-ground. Old
"Nick's" trumpet sounded and from the darkness issued a long line of ghost-like objects.
clad in the apparel like unto those who inhabit the realms above. To them a dancing
master was an unnecessary nuisance and two-step and waltz time was a drag and a bore.
If the Red Skin's chant and chatter, and war whoop had been substituted for the horns
of many blasts and tin cans from many a rubbish pile, one might have impulsively
reached for the rifle on the rack or his old six-shooter behind in his belt. The bonfire
was dimming and the war dance's circling shadow faded away and merged into a mov-
ing line of specter infantrymen, unmarshaled and ungeneraled, wending their way along
the various streets and thoroughfares toward the commercial center, where the pulse
beats rapidly and irregularly, and breasts heave with excitement. Pedestrians with
stareing eyes and gaping mouths, inf their hurry and flurry, drew up to the curbingsg au-
tos and vehicles slackened their speed and lingered along the procession of the spotless,
amid the din of horns and cans, college songs and class yells. On nearing the further
confines of the down-town district the word was passed along the line from one sentinel
to another that, unmasked and with only the Weapons of Jerico, an electric train to
Heim's park was to be waylaid and boarded, and a new train crew installed. After the
occupants' seats and holdings were contested, they were honorably discharged and the
management of the rolling stock was undisputed by the traffic department. The red
signals were hauled down and white ones took their places. The manifest red ball
cards were tacked on and they speeded by local stops with unisputed right-of-way to
the terminus, where they were received with bows and courtsies, and escorted by the
hundreds of gaping masqueraders who had gathered Carnival night to make merry and
brush the store and office dust from their belabored brows. Many a lass was wooed,

m-oref' Far greater were the number of Evangelines Who were wrent asunder from
their lover and cast out in the darkness of the night amid the turbulency of the "break-
erst' and "white caps." With many a freak and frolic, singing songs of good old col-
, lege days, shouting verse and lingos to dear old U. M. C., and after restoring their cap-

"Well, what ails her, Doc?"
"Can't say as yet. Patient is of such an extremely nervous temperament that an
exact diagnosis is a matter of unusual difficulty. She seems to have a high temperature
and a rapid bounding pulse. Inspection reveals a gasping panting respiration and a
large amount of expectorated material of a granular sooty consistency. Vocal fremitus
is simply immense while the rales are a sort of cross between the snorting of a wind-
broken horse and the moaning of a Kansas cyclone. A couple of you fellows bring a
hammer and we will see if percussion reveals any new discord among this patient's
f'Took the patient's history yet, Doc?l' asked a bystander.
"Yes, says, her family name is Baldwin and came origin-ally from Philadelphia.
Pa. All her family were hearty eaters and she seems to have inherited the tendency,
since it requires constant efforts on the part of one attend-ant to feed her while another is
kept busy by her nervous manifestations due, no doubt, to an overloaded stomach. She
is quite a fpig! " With this final remark the speaker passed on followed by a few low
chuckles and a cough or two.
"Say, Bill, ain't it tool bad?" asked he who had made the first inquiries of the per-
son designated as Do-c. "Ain't what too bad," Bill rejoined. "About Doc. He used to
be a sober, sensible young man, what we fellows call a 'good Indianf Was till he be-
gan to associate with those doctors over at the University. Now he rambles about in
an aimless -sort of way and his mind seems to wander at times. When he is having one
of his worst spells he lets go of a lot of such stuff as you heard him get off about that
engine. A high temperature and a rapid pulse, bosh!" and the spe-aker turned away in
"Don't he attend school at the University?', asked a companion, "he say-s he does."
"Him, na-a-w, he has a friend over there that he calls on now and then. Can't
say whether it is the office girl, a student or one of the nurses in the hospital, but he
generally goes over on Tuesday and Thursday. Picks up a few medical terms with
which to stun us poor working fellows when he gets backf'
The writer was an unobserved listener to the above conversation which took
place on the platform of the Union Depot, Kansas City, Mo. The last two speakers were
employes of the Union Depot Company, while the subject of their criticism was a tall
handsome lad of some thirty-five -summers who I recognized at once.
He turne-d quickly as I accosted him with, "Hello, Harry, what are you doing
here?" and came toward me with, f'Ah, old man, delighted! Y-ou see I am permanently
employed here except for a few spare mome-nts which I put in at the U. M. C. I work for
Uncle Sam in the mail service and it give-sl me abundant opportunity for practical work
among the invalids. Ah, ha, what's up? Not working? Sick? Let me see you tongue?
Ahem, require a plastic oper-ati-on and la liberal application of Oleum No. 399." These
last remarks aside to an idle baggage truck apparently having a broken axle.,
"There is no end of this- sort of thingj' said Harry, excellent qualification for the
practice of medicine. Now here is an interesting case," pointing to a big mail sack
whose sides were bulged almost to bursting. t'Patient apparently has a general peri-
egree, while the one that attend-
tonitis. That one there a laceration of the second d
ant is trying to empty has a carcinoma of the sigmoid. That one to the left with the
bulge over right inguinal region evidently has a strangulated hernia?
"Ad1ios," said I. f'Whlat, not going," asked Harry, much surprised.
"Yes, must run along, Harry, my boy. Better take a spin out to 3-lst and Lydia
tomorrow. I think those wheels need fixing."
With this remark I left him and boarded an electric car bound for home. As my
car swung round the curve I caught a last glimpse of Harry gently palpating the side of
a passenger coach endeavoring no doubt to get at the scientific predisposing cause of
several large bullae in the paint.

I wish to report a pretty case that recently came into my practice-the only on..
I ever had in which the presentation was P. A. I. D.
Born Christmas day-it was time.
Mother's name, Mrs. Howard Watch.
Age 1-12 M-ultipara.
Family history good, except for severe case of tic.
Color, quite yellow.
Face, very white.
The hands were long and kept in motion.
There was a pulsation at the umbilicusg sixty per minute.
Most of the information I could get was second hand.
But from the excellent condition it was in I knew the wound was recent.
The cord was a long, black affair, wrapped around the neck and attached rather
to one side, to a stem -having a metallic ring.
Examining posterior, I found several markings evidently not self inflicted. I im-
mediately prepared to open' up the ca-se. I took o-ut my scalpel and began prying into
the matter. I found evidence of considerable intern-al disturbances. The gall bladder
was missing altogther but there were some seventeen stones scattered here and there,
and more or less easily seen.
There was also la heart murmur and an escapement.
I observed that any in-terference on my part would affect the vitality, fast ebbing
away, and that I had- better watch out.
I closed the case. It was a snap.

Dr. Hertzler: 'tWhat would be the first thing you would look for on going to a
private ho-use to do a post mortem ?',
Diemer: "Crepe on the door."
Dr. Wheeler: "What is electricity?"
Dillingham: "I did know but I have forgotten."

"Some men achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them."
To thi-s class belongs Lewis, the president of 1911. Everisince he had greatness
thr-ust upon him by making his "hit" with the freshman class. He is the 'Candy Kid"
even if he has a tobacco heart that goes flippity-flop.
Well, of all the notables of the University Medical College, Farr, 'iThe Whistling
VVonder," with hi-s young "Gray" stuffed in his hip pocket, has got 'em all skinned.
What a satisfaction it will be to future medical students to look at Dawson's new
edition of Gray's Anatomy. And yes, by the way, why don't they run the school to suit
his convenience anyhow, he never gets through telling the Profs how to do it.
Woods fcoming into class one Monday morninglz "My how fine I feel this morn-
ing. I only had three toddies and two beers before coming to class." Now anybody
could tell that that juvenile faced kid from Independence couldn't look an empty beer

I tell you.
Talk about your lady's man, Harrison has an idea that he is just about the neatest
fuser in town. Widows, grass widows, are his specialty.
McElvain says he is the busiest man in school. When the wind blows off his hat,
he i-s in too big a hurry to stop and pick it up, he waits till he comes by that way the
That man Uhlery certainly puts on the knowesting look of any fellow you ever
met, but when you tap his head, why it l-ike Bryan's idea of free silver, that the Dawson
and Egbert pair keep talking, there is nothing in it.
But say, how all the freshmen like Ewing. When a test comes around there is
a fight as to who will sit next to him. It has even been reported that Scott said he would
rather copy off him than Harrison.
There is only one trouble with Miller, and that is he is so bald-headed that you
can't tell where his face leaves off and his head begins.
Aiken says that he will quit asking Dr. Lowe questions if Dr. Lowe would only
leave him alone.

SYNONYMS-Jackson's Metastatic Rooteritis, Frankenburger's Disease.
DEFINITION-A highly contagious inflammatory mental condition of students, charac-
terized by an exhilarative mania for supporting all college activities.
LOCATION-As fo-und, usually occurs in epidemics. At U. M. C. it has been very fre-
quently observed in isolated sporadic cases.
ETIOLOGY-Diplococcus Loyalitis. A double cocci forming good cultures on average
student media, but having sparse growth on culture of medical students.
Conditions favoring development of germ-Hot air, champion athletic teams, class
scraps, high opsonic index.
Conditions inhibiting growth of germ-Married life, overstudy, tight pocketbook.
SYMPTOMS-fab The typical ca-se commences on the opening day of school with high
fever, glad hand, push and support for every student activity. This activity in
most cases reaches its zenith usually about Thanksgiving and ends gradually by
lysis on last day of school, although even during decline frequent exacerbations of
increased infection may arise. fbj All typical cases are common. They are usual-
ly manifested by tendency to rah! rah! trousers, yellow shoes, loud socks, dinky
cap, padded shoulders, long hair and chrysanthemums. The vocal power may be
so accentuated as to resemble the sound made by setting the brakes on a freight
train, or mistaken for nine o'clock curfew. In these cases the mouth usually ob-
scures the face leaving scant room on the rim of head for eyes, nose and ears.
Often times absolute loss of control is experienced by the patient and he is re-
strained with difficulty from smashing his neighbor's derby, dancing like a jump-
ing jack, or following up acute attacks with worship at the shrine of Bacchus.
PROGNOSIS-Very favorable. Tends toward enjoyment and peace of mind in future.
TREATMENT-Stimulants most frequently used: Liberal increasing doses of crimson

With Apologies to the Shade of Tennyson.
This poem is respectfully dedicated to the present senior class, and was inspired
by results of their last year's work.
Half an hour, half an hour
Half an hour onward.
All in the smoke of exams
Ride the half hundred.
Forward the quizz brigade
Charge for a grade, they said,
Into the hell of exams
Rode the half hundred.
Forward the quizz brigade,
Was there a man dismayed?
Many there were appalled.
Who had missed out or stalled.
That was their reason why,
They went to ride or die.
So into the week of exams,
Rode armed the half hundred.
Wheeler to right of them
Langsdale to left of them
Morrow in front of them
Admonished and thundered.
Charged on with board and chalk
Nobly they stood the shock
Warned that they mustn't talk
Within that awful den
Flashed they their ponies there
Whispers' soon filled the air.
Boldly a man would lend
A helping quizz compend,
To his weakened brother.
What if Hill could see
That small epitome
Straddling a junior's knee.
All the class wondered.
Burkhardt to right of them
Roberts to left of them
Sutton in front of them,
Cautioned and thundered.
Watched o'er with eagle eyes,
Dauntless the squad defies
The Profs to devise
Why none had blundered.
Then out from the medics hell
Came those who rode so well,
Nervy half hundred.
When can their glory fade
O, the high grades they made.
All the school wondered.
Honor the ride they made,
Honor the quizz brigade,
Noble half hundred.
Fought the half hundred. -J. F. N..

It is with conflicting euzotions of satisfaction, aim-lfgfyj
hope and fear that we present for the consideration and
criticisni of the college and its friends, this first year book
of the University 1Uedical College, KKTHE SCALPEL,H
We realize that there are niany things we could do better
on a second trial. It is always niore difficult to follow an
uublazed trail and to create souiething without a pattern or
a guide, than to pursue the beaten pathways of precedence.
But we hope that our efforts have served to awaken an
interest in this field of college endeavor in U. lll. C. and
that the succeeding Junior classes inay profit by our errors
and gain e.1'perieuce in our iniperfections.
We have not attenzpted to produce a wofk of literary
genius, but nierely to- leave with you a true picture of our
college days, and if, in future years you chance to turn the
dusty pages of this book and it brings to niind incidents and
nienzories of happy days filled' with fellowship and good
cheer, driving away the inists of tiine and distance, our
work will not have been in vain.
To the faculty, the nurses of the training school and the
student body we wish to express our appreciation for their
enthusiastic support and encourageinent.
We are especially indebted to MR. F. B. IQYGER and
W. R. DILLINGHAM of the Senior class, for their assistance
in procuring Senior history, and to MR. D. S. LONG and'
W. C. GADDIS of the Sophoniore and Freshnian classes.
With the publication of this book the Scalpel board
leaves the strenuous for the siniple life. May you be pleased
with the results of our labors and your sentence be "Well
donef' "Requiescat in pace."

HE train is running clickety click,
about thirty miles per hour, and I,
the homecoming medical student,
begin to recognize familiar buildings.
Stretching my arms and legs, then pick up
my suit case, and as the train comes to a
jarring, grinding stop, I step down onto the
platform. Half a dozen fellows whom I
have grown up with stick out their hands
and say, "Hello, Doc." Everybody seems
to take a special dig at me, asking wif I am
still cuttin' 'em up?,' etc. I look on them
all with a superior air, smile, and pass on
to where the younger brother waits with
the two sorrel ponies hitched to a dem-
ocrat Ca two-seated spring wagoni, throw
in the suit case, and drawing my raincoat
carefully about me, so as not to get
against the wheels, step up and sink down
on the left side of the front seat.
The younger brother, in overalls and
jumper, climbs up on the other side with-
out so much as cleaning the mud off his
feet. The "city chap," as that is what I
am now since I've spent three months in
the city, launches into the usual questions
about the folks at home and finding that
they have all managed to survive the ab-
sence of one so important as himself, I
settle down to listen to the news of the
community. During this time we have
driven up Main street at no slow pace,
spattering mud on both of us as well as
the 'suit case. We stop in front of the
grocery store and load in a cracker box
of groceries, then once more set out upon
the road home, six miles through mud and
water. Hello! Dr. Jones has built a new
fence and painted his house. How things
do change when a fellow leaves home.

when passing here at night. Now we go
down this piece of level read, the hedge
fence on one side and Cameron's house
and garden on the other. There is no one
to be seen at the windows so we "hike"
along without further ado. Now we cross
the creek on the red bridge. Often I have
crossed this bridge at night when the
noise of the horse's feet on the planks
would be the first intirnation that I was
anywhere near it, and as soon as the bug-
gy slipped off the last plank, with that
bump into the hole where the Inud-puddle
was, I dropped peacefully back into my
slumbers. Up the slight stretch, around
the corner, up grade another quarter, an-
other in the opposite direction, down the
half slope across the draw and around the
next corner and we are half way home.
Here the road is paralleled by the creek
for a quarter and the right of way about
one-half quarter wide, the rabbits are
thick in the under-brush at this time. As
we go along a gray chicken hawk is sit-

git the feedin' done." Only the faint
sounds of the oven door slamming in the

me for breakfast. Occasionally the plain-

There is as yet little data as to just how long an individual can live without a
stomach, neither is there, as to how long he may live with one. Statistics concerning
both conditions will appear early in 1910 in the Annals of Police Surgery by Drs Bates
Lane and Hyndls of Kansas City, Mo. The motto of these famous surgeons is lndicated
in the following:
"Le-t us, then, be up and cutting,
With an eye to every curve,
Tho the appendix keeps on butting
And the knife should chance to swerve
Other cutting bouts have taught us
How to play this little game,
So we feel that those who've sought us
Still may live to bless our name."
"Why is it, Mr. Osborne,"
Said Dr. McKillip one day,
As he quizied on diagnosis
In hi-s own peculiar way,
"Why do y-ou never have pneumonia
ln the middle lobe on left hand side?"
"I don't know, really, doctor,"
Said C. D., yawning wide.
"Because there is no middle lobe
l In the aforesaid lung."
And C. D. sadly hung his head
And murmured gently, "stung!"

The dignified, diplomatic, delicate and dangerous position of caretaker-in-chief,
guardian and custodian of the college plan-t, lieutenant and field marshall to the De-an
and Trustees, main spring of the daily routine of classes and clinics, bete noir of the
Freshmen, factotem, poo-bah and sine qua non of the University Medical College is am-
ply and ably filled in the person of Mr. L. J. Hall.
This genial gentleman, popular alike with faculty and student body, by his kindly
but firm administration is instilling manners and morals into medics in a marvelous
way. Under Hall's Big Stick, U. M. C. has gradually metamorphosed fro-m a den of Wild
Hyenas who found expression for their savage instincts in festooning human intestines
from chandeliers, suspending dismembered arms and legs from adjoining telephone
wires and starting murder mysteries by hiding parts of stiffs in vacant lots for the po-
lice to find, into a school bearing the outward aspect of a theological seminary.
For eight years Hall has been the watch dog of the university and the Nemesis
of the rough house. He has seen many a Freshman arrive with the smell of the damp
soil and the odor of new mown hay fresh upon him, high school diploma under his arm
and nothing Whatever under his hat, and depart four years later, a dapper doctor glory-
ing in his first chin whiskers.
He is always the same and always a good fellow. We really couldn't do without
him, and the Freshmen of this year and those to follow we would commend to Hall's
care with the assurance that they will receive the same tender solicitude that a young
mother bestows upon her first born.
