ITOR BETTY WEISER O BUSINESS MANAGER MARY ELIZABETH SNEA
For the first time, the Kangaroo, Liberal Arts, Law and Pharmacy
yearbook, and the Bushwhacker, Dentistry yearbook, have joined forces to
publish an enlarged annual. This act has been facilitated by the rapid
growth of the University of Kansas City, which warranted the publication
of one yearbook rather then separate ones.
After much controversy, it was decided to retain the name "Kangaroo"
for the book as a whole. Each of the four schools has a separate section
with the name of its former annual. It was realized that when the Dental
school moved its headquarters out to the main campus, an amalgamation
of the two yearbooks would be in order. The staffs have attempted to antici-
pate this move. We therefore present you with the new and "better" product.

To the main character on the campuses of America
today. To the guy responsible for transforming this univer-
sity from a school of several hundred to one of several
thousand. To the fellow who gladened the heart of many a
fair female, and who sharpened their observation-can spot
a gold hand on third finger left hand at fifty paces. To the
one with an uncle who can afford to buy the fifteen books
required for each course these days. Time was when pro-
fessors were happy if students brought one sheaf of parch-
ment. To the man who has completely changed the picture
of college life, we dedicate this hook.

but such social affairs as a Quad dance, October 26,
a Christmas dance, December 20, a duplicate bridge
tournament, November 16, the Kangaroo hop, Hobo
day and weekly Friday night mixers. An award as-
sembly was held in the spring for the students with
the highest scholarship and the most extracurricular
Early in December the council purchased a juke
box which has furnished the music for the Friday
night informal dances following the basketball games.
The council also created a board of control for social
functions which will supervise the entire social pro-
gram of the University.
The Student Council entered the National Stu-
dent Organization from the ground floor, sending
delegates to the Chicago national conference and to
the St. Louis regional conference to represent the stu-
dent body. Faculty advisors are Miss Miriam Wagner
and Dean Robert Haun.

Who's Who Among Students in American Uni-
versities and Colleges is a nationwide honor awarded
to leading students on college campuses. Students
must have a grade average of "C" before they are
judged on qualities of leadership and character. Service
to the school, campus activities, scholarship and all
honorary and social organizations to which a student
may belong, are considered. At this University, can-
didates are chosen from the four schools and sub-
mitted to the All-Student Council for approval.
Members representing the Schools of Dentistry and
Pharmacy must be of superior ability in their future
One of the outstanding features of Who's Who is
the Student Placement Service, through which stu-
dents belonging to it are recommended to American
employers who are seeking capable college graduates
to fill responsible positions.
The student elected to Who's Who receives a gold
key as a token of membership, and is awarded a spe-
cial certificate of membership at the Annual Award
Assembly in May.

Headed by Mike Denney the first semester, and
Marilyn Haggard the second semester, the Univer-
sity News went through its renovation this year.
The staff felt an obligation to uphold the news-
paper's place in the university community by pub-
lishing the ideas current in the student mind and
promoting the ideals for which the University
Stress was placed on making the U-News a
strictly student publication, setting itself up as an
organ of expression of the students themselves. From
the policy published the second semester, the re-
sponsibility to the student body was explained thus:
"Every student pays an activity fee each semester
--a large percentage of which goes to the support
of the U-News. The editor of the campus news-
paper is chosen by a board of control appointed by
the representative body of the students, the Student
Council. Thus, each student is part owner-controller
of the U-News and the editor and staff are directly
responsible to these individuals which they repre-
With the increase in enrollment, and the influx
of veterans on the campus, the paper was able to
draw one of the most able staffs in its history. An
absolute maximum of student participation in the
publication was striven for. Members of the journal-
ism class also participated in news gathering and
staff duties. Miss Helen Jo Crissman acted as faculty
Standing are Bob Curry and Cal Lakin. Seated

What a year! To start it off, the Kangaroo and
Bushwhacker surprised everyone with an elopement
-probably a marriage of convenience. Next the en-
rollment surpassed the expectations of all concerned.
Classes had to be held in the auditorium. The Law
school spread itself thinly over the entire campus
including the science building. Overflowing lab
sections led to the construction of temporary build-
ings to house the dentists and pharmacists. The
Student Council went all out for entertaining its
numerous subjects. The U-News went on an edi-
torial spree with a "reform the universe' campaign.
Everything pointed to a complicated, but highly in-
Alums and newcomers of the Arts will hardly
recognize this Kangaroo-either by comparison with
the bygone humor mag or even by comparison with
last year's annual, 150 pages to some 300. Dentists
will frantically wonder what has happened to their
Due to the size of the book, no attempt was made
to closely knit the five sections with a central theme.
However on the main division pages, students are
shown looking ahead to the new buildings of their
respective schools. It is certain that with the 1n-
crease of enrollment and the end of the war, those
Betty Weiser, editor.
long anticipated buildings will soon follow to com-
plete the scheme of the campus. This is probably
the main interest of the students, faculty and admin-
istration this year.
The Kangaroo was divided into books according
to the schools in the university. Each "book', re-
tains the name of the school's former annual.
This presented quite a problem because the Liberal
Arts school has never had an annual by any name
other than "Kangaroo," It was impossible to use the
same name for a section and the title of the book,
too. Therefore the editor fell back on the name used
in the past for the senior and final edition of the old
"Kangaroo.',-the "Crataegus.,' Each school had its
editor responsible for the material required. One thing
that eased the task of being editior-in-chief was that
the dental editor, Dick Street, assumed full responsi-
bility for his section, including copy and makeup.
Thanks are duly and liberally awarded.
This is usually the page in which orchids are
tossed promiscuously about to all members of the
staff-a bit boring to the reader. This year's staff
has been most adequate. They have performed an
extremely difficult task well. Those rare flowers
are particularly awarded to the photographers each

Christened in the renowned University pond with a thorough dunking, the
inenihers of the class of 1947 have experienced, or should we say suffered, each of
those events that hefall a college student over a period of four years. Each year
they loolzed forward to the Barbeque, Quad dance, Masquerade hall and especially
the crowning event of the year, H oho Day. Besides these school activities we ali
will rerneinher with pleasure the sorority and frat dances, the days in the Roost and
the innuinerahle colzes irnhihed there, all of which are now ending, or rather closed
with caps and gowns to he fitted and pressed, coinprehensives to he passed.
The senior-alumni dinner and senior tea remind the seniors that they have
finally reached their aspired goal-graduation. The class of 1947 has known the
vicissitudes of a passive war tiine cainpus, and experienced the rarnpant post war
crowded cainpus. The hopes of the post war carnpus have heen realized for the
class of 1947 as it leaves its University progressing with the speed of tinie.

Both traditions and records were hrohen when the freshman class of 1946
entered the University. The first upset came when the freshman enrollment soared
to the unprecedented height of 505 students, 157 more than the total registered a
year ago. The veteran, comprising a majority of this grand total, is a new and very
interesting element of campus life. The addition of the veteran brought a new
light to the life of the freshman coed for it reinstated the ideal ratio of two men to
every girl. She had recovered hy now though from the shock of learning that many
of these Mr.'s already have a Mrs.
A three-day orientation program started the freshman on his college career.
Its tests were accepted meekly, for "it's all for your henefit, of course". A weiner
roast hrought welcome relief from the tests as well as a chance to meet fellow
classmates. The outstanding leadership of this freshman class was first displayed
in a lively mock political meeting. This featured a hotly contested hattle hetween
the Liheral and the Arts parties. Oh yes, the Liherals won.
This year, for the first time in University history, the freshmen held their
class election without the interference of u p perclassmen. This was possihle through
the inauguration of a new rushing plan, wherehy the rushing of prospective
memhers of the social cluhs on the campus did not hegin until the end of the six
weeks, and therehy after the freshman election.
Because the up perclassmen of 1946 felt such a pity for these poor, naive, little
freshmen, there was no Freshman Wfeeh., therefore no splashes in the pond, no jeans,
no pigtails, no hooks in huchets. Let it not he said though that this came ahout
hecause the freshmen were more numerous, and also hrawnier.
This "yearling,', the freshman, is fast learning his niche in University life.
He has made quite an impact on the University and rightly so, for hig things are
expected of his future.

The profoundest impulse in human nature is the
search for the meaning of life. Whatever the mag-
nitude of his failures, however feebly his steps have
faltered, from time immemorial man has sought some
vision of the world that would illumine the pilgrim-
age from the cradle to the grave. Of life totally
considered we know little. Our vision ultimately is
a thing of faith. It may be defined, as Carl Sandburg
once defined poetry, as "a synthesis of hyacinths and
biscuits." We are conscious of physical sensations,
emotional responses, mental activities-the things
we call experience. For many of us experience is little
more than what the philosopher William james has
described as "a big blooming buzzing confusion."
For others experience is rich and colorful, vivid and
intense-a pageant of infinite hues, patterns, move-
ments, and meanings. But whether our experience
be partial or panoramic, whether it reveal momentary
glimpses or the long look ahead, our vision of the
world alone gives life interest and significance.
We hope that your life on this campus has helped
you toward the larger vision. We hope that you will
not forsake the best it has held out for you. We hope
that your "synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits" will
do honor to you, to your alma mater, and to the
"one world" you serve.

through each Friday night session and through such
activities as inter-sorority sports, the first all-school
script dance and the annual spring dancef

Chiko life on campus. They are the past for Chiko
graduates and the future for the members.

Bounders went away from school last summer un-
der the leadership of a newly elected president, George
Christian, and began to supply the campus with a
round of activities which began with a midsummer-
semester dance in the gymnasium, attended by most
of the student population.
At a Christmas party for Bounders and their ladies
it was announced that the new president was to be
Glenn Beckett, a member of the fraternity since 1941.
With Beckett at the helm, Bounder destiny was sure
to be one of success-school records show that this
group engaged in an outstandingly successful year.
Traditionally first in leadership of all campus activi-
ties, this year was no exception for the club.

During the first semester of 1945 a group of older
students found that their many aims and purposes at
the University fell into a general channel-a channel
that is sometimes referred to as comradeship. They
found that even Without a formal organization to
bind them together, they had much in common in
their pursuit for a higher education. With a formal
organization of fraternal members, they felt that
much more could be added to their anticipated aca-
demic, social, recreational and professional future.
This was the beginning of Tau Kappa Nu men's club.
These men met to form a definite plan for this
new group. It was decided a charter should be drawn.
The charter was accepted on
condition that the club's name
be changed to a non-Greek let-
ter title, but the club refused
to change the name. On No-
vember 7, 194S the Faculty
committee approved the char-

handling and clean sportsmanship.
Operating for the first time as an exclusive sports-
man's club, exclusive in the sense that only men in-
terested in athletics and music may join, the group
outlined an extensive program for participation in
all sports. Outstanding in basketball were such men-
tors as Baylie Katz, Russell Hecke, Walt Stelmach,
Gene Fadsworth, George Knaus, Fred Fornal, Glenn
Bardwell, Bill Fairchild and Hans Schweder. Second
place in handball doubles was won for the club by

With six members back on the campus at the be-
ginning of the first semester of the year, the Benton-
ians took up where they left off in 1944 when the
last Bent went to the service and the organization was
forced to disband. Bentonian was the third pre-war
fraternity to return to the campus.
Having gained several new members last fall,
the Bentonians started right out by entering a team
in the football intramurals, and from then on was
once again in the Swing of athletic, social and politi-
cal life of the campus.
This year's Bentonian basketball team was one that
was respected by all teams who came up against it,
just as in pre-war days. Then when baseball came
around the Bents again showed their athletic prowess.
In the social world, Bentonion's big event of the
year was the Christmas dinner-dance, an annual af-
fair, which' was held at the Blue Hills Country club.
Besides holding rush parties, the Bents had a hayride
and spring Party and took an active part in Hobo day.

was a chili supper at Ed Terrill's home.
On October 31, a private Halloween party was held

of securing a place for everyone in the social and
political life of the University.

a unique organization in that mere payment of dues
does not give one the right to be a member. A mem-

he accumulates fifteen points, entitling him to full
This year the U-players workshop presented two
productions in the first semester. On November S,
6 and 7, "Saturday's Children" by Maxwell Ander-
son played at the Resident theater. Patricia Redding
and Charles Holt had the leading roles. The follow-
ing month the second production was played at the
Community church. It was the Christmas morality
play, "Everyman", which ran for the entire week of
December 9 to 13. It is hoped that this production
will become an annual affair.

The U-Players opened their bi-monthly meetings
with an offering of "back-flashes" from the previous
year's productions, and then went on to surpass any-
thing they had done previously.
Instead of presenting just one major production
during the first semester this year the U-Players
workshop boasts two. The first presentation was
"Saturday's Children" by Maxwell Anderson, which
played a three-night run, November S, 6, 7, at the
Resident theater. Pat Redding, a veteran of Univer-
sity productions, and Charles Holt, a newcomer, took
the leads in this modern matrimonial play. Doris
Cranfill showed herself an able comedienne in the role
of a suspicious landlady. Several other times during
the year the cast presented the first act of the play
to Kansas City organizations under the Anderson title,
"How to Get a Husbandv.
The following month, the second production was
ready for presentation at the Community church.
This was the early English morality play, "Every-
mann. It opened on December 9 and ran for a full
week. It is hoped that this play will become an an-
nual presentation of the Drama Workshop. Once

again Charles Holt proved his ability, playing the title
role in this drama of sin and repentance. He was
ably supported by Pat Redding in the role of his mis-
tress, Alan Baker and Ray Chance, his cousins, Bill
Wells, Mammon, and Elizabeth Shea, Faith. There
were over thirty people in the entire supporting cast.
The pageant like effect of the production was
heightened by the use of authentic fourteenth cen-
tury costumes. The girls in the cast practiced almost
as much on managing their flowing trains as on their
lines. The men swashbuckled appropriately in their
full capes. John Schroeder had a most effective eos-
tume with attached horns and rail.

ter technicolor movies of the "Everyman" produc-
tion Were shown.

VIJLLEYBALL ANU HIJHSESHIIES . . .
Witli many organizations entering two and three
squads, the volleyball round-robin competition was
the scene of many heated games in this game which
predominates as a team sport. Ranked high in the
dopesters' pre-tournament calculations were the
Olympiads, the APO aggregation, Tau Kappa Nu
and the Cleats.
The horseshoe tournament found a large number
of men with whom making ringers was the rule,
rather than the exception. It was paced by Jack
Elliot, Jim Littrell and Mel Goers.
SIJPTBALI. . . .
Despite having to combat tough opponents and
wet playing diamonds, the softball engagements as-
sumed all the aspects of major league games. Once
again, a record turnout kept things moving at a
rapid pace due to the scarcity of time remaining in
the regular school year. As always, the "battle of
the pitchers" was paramount, with the Sluggers pay-
ing homage to the boys who hurl the pellet across
the plate. Outstanding among the competing nines
were the Pharmacy squad, Kegon and the Law school.

One of the many contortions endured in the modern dance class.
WllMEN'5 SPUHT5 . . .
For the first time since 1941, the women have an
official organization through which to display their
athletic prowess. The Women's Athletic association
was reorganized last winter, and is now in full swing.
Under the guidance of Miss Jean Bowers of the Physi-
cal Education Department, the W. A. A. has organ-
ized intra-mural tournaments in several sports, in-
cluding volley-ball, basketball, badminton, table
tennis and aerial darts. Participants have included
sorority and independent teams.
After heated contests through January and Feb-
ruary, Chiko and Sigma Beta sororities came out on
top, and were proclaimed co-champions of the volley-
ball tournament. In the basketball contest, the Chikos
proved to be the masters of the game, and won first
place. The table tennis, badminton and aerial darts
matches were organized and played off during March
Although the organization has just started, it has
made great strides, and has made even greater plans
for the future. Under' its president, Jean Staver, it
is making plans for a wider selection of activities
next year, and a play day, which it hopes to make an
annual event. One of the main aims of the organiza-
tion is to include more independent teams in the
Another innovation in the athletic department is
the modern dance courses. These classes Qtaught by
Miss Bowers, who is also new on the campus this
yearj are attended enthusiastically by more than sixty
girls. In fact, the course was so popular that two
advanced classes were organized the second semester.
Everyone who takes modern dance can tell you that
it gives one a marvelous work-out, especially if a
state of acute stiffness and sore muscles is desired!

The Women's Intra-mural board, pictured above,
is composed of two representatives of each of the
teams taking part in the sports tournaments. It is a
part of the Women's Athletic association, formed
this year on the campus.
The W.A.A. is a national organization which
promotes athletic interests and activities for Uni-
versity women and fosters a high standard of sports-
The Boys' Intramural council was organized in
September, 1946. Conceived by Coach Dan Shura
and Powell Adams, its primary function was to settle
disputes and provide playing regulations. The charter
for the council was approved by the Student Council
in January, 1947, thereby making it an official organ
of the student body.
One member of each team participating in in-
tramural activities constitutes the membership of the

This year the Intra-mural board controlled all the
womenis athletic activities until the council Could
be elected. The board managed both the volleyball
and basketball tournaments and wrote the consti-
tution for the newly formed W.A.A. The council,
headed by jean Staver, took over at the first of
March and managed the individual sports tourna-
ments, ping-pong, aerial darts and badminton.

Clarence Brown and Al Bishop help feed the mob at
Hobo Day! The only outpost of expectation the
student can look forward to during the hard month
of April, and the last milestone of fun until finals
and the glorious end of school. April 25 became the
red letter day for the undergraduate.
The fun fest began Thursday evening at 7:30
with a barbecue for the students and faculty-for
free. Kansas City vied with California for "Cham-
ber of Commerce" weather. Yes, it drizzled. But
what was rain to the fun in heart, so the barbecue
was held on schedule in the Rec Room with the
Bounder fraternity serving to record crowds. After
a good deal of persuasion and kerosene, the tradi-
tional bonfire was prodded into flame, rain and all.
Equal portions of coke, beef, bonfire and the usual
incidentals led to a successful Hobo eve.
jeff Davis, king of the Hoboes, arrived by flying
boxcar Thursday evening. He was met by a dele-
gation of students, and was conveyed to the Uni-
versity. Jeff was formally introduced to K.C.U.
Dr. Clarence Decker officially opened Hobo Day
with a reluctant proclamation. Jeff Davis was intro-
duced and given an honorary degree by the student
body. He reciprocated by awarding "Doc', Decker
the title of duke of the hoboes. Jeff Davis must be
given credit for a good deal of the spirit of Hobo
Day this year.
Loretta Whitton and Jim Littell were crowned
king and queen of Hobo Day by jeff Davis. The
organization skits were begun while the audience
enthusiastically munched on peanuts and laughed at
the proper intervals. The Beta Zeta and Sigma Beta
sororities tied for first place in the skits. Jim Gold
won the beard growing contest. Bill LeRoy cap-
tured the title for best pie eater.
Box lunches were served at noon while Warren
Durrett and his swing combination played. There
was also a variety show presented during lunch.
Late in the afternoon the hoboes dashed home to
put on their formal attire and attempt to cover up
sunburned faces. They hurried back -to participate
in or listen to the traditional song contest. Sigma
Beta triumphed over the sororities and Alpha Phi
Omega over the fraternities. The Beta Zeta sorority
and Bounder fraternity placed second.
The Kangaroo Hop began to the strains of War-
ren Durrett and his orchestra. The Hop is given in
honor of the Kangaroo Queen and her four attend-
ants. There were two judgings this year, one ac-
cording to tradition and a later one according to
the rule of the Student Council. Actually it made
little difference because Winston Lawrence was
chosen queen by Harry Conover, New York model
agency chief and the first judge, as well as later by
three able Kansas City judges, Ralph Kolb of Burger
Baird, Lawrence Edwards of the Art Institute and
Frederick James also of the Institute.
There were thirty-four candidates the second
time. At a previous interview by the three judges,
the candidates were eliminated to ten. The night of
the Hop these ten were judged from which the queen
and her four attendants were chosen. During inter-
mission the Kangaroo Queen, Winston Lawrence,
was escorted to the stage by her "most fascinating
man," Powell Adams, where she was crowned by
Thomas Hart Benton, the distinguished Missouri
artist. Dorothy Smith was escorted by Earl Boutell,
Marjorie Rice by Jack Schnackenberg, Marian
Shawhan by Dixie Howell and Mildred Mathis by
The end of the Kangaroo Hop meant the end of
Hobo Day this year. The seniors say it won't be
equalled. Underclassmen look eagerly forward to a
bigger and better day next year. In any case this
Hobo Day reached a height not attained for many
years, and for better or worse they are always fun
-longed for by the graduate and looked forward
to by the undergraduate.

The most comical occurrence of the entire year
Cand viewed only by a fewj was Coach Shura,s won-
derful mockery of Fritz Kuhn. It was perfect, and
appropriate. The most tragic event of the year was
the "winning" of the turkey by the A.P.O. prexy.
And a true happy note is the, blush, romance, blush,
of Ethel Brown and, blush, Leo Shulteis, blush-blush!
A revision of the social setup virtually stopped all
social club activity, but the Bounder-Cho Chin dance
was mighty fine. Then the Kegon i'picnic" was a
startling, and appreciated, innovation. The TKN's
are establishing a tradition with their purple passion
parties, but invites are scarce.
Glamor-girl Dottie Smith isn't about to be settling

Bill Schneikart saw that marriage was a good deal

Wherels the Brute lately? Don Vance has an eye-

It begins to sound as if there was a lot of romance
at Kazoo, but with almost 2,500 students there isn't
as much as you'd think. The better than 2-1'ratio
of boys to girls has almost all of the girls so dated
up that they are really beginning to think they,re
queens. But the horrible truth will out-they aren't!
Jane Foley might be the one to finally break up
the Taylor-Dorizzi marathon, but it is a deep down
affair. jim Keal and Bob Meyers are never content
to be in love less than once a week. Don Braun and
Bernice Licklider are a right slick couple.
Did you ever wonder how studying is with beer?
It's fine. A few cases of Schlitz brought a B in
Shakespeare once, and more than one Biology test was

the kiss of a Grable. -
Winston Lawrence and Jerry O'Dowd could have
a prefix to their names, but that would be telling.
Barbara Owens unhorsed Clong dropj to romance
with Frank Vrooman. It could be love. The Beta

back to Merrill after Behner didn't like the on-again,
off-again treatment. Paul Maier really gets a jolt
from the frantic politics on campus. He has enough
on the ball to run the place if he wanted.
What a shock it will be when Marilyn finds out
that Gulley is really serious! Don Herzog is a P.O.
boy, but Margie Rice could be just what it takes to
cool him off.
The Sprinkle brothers are two very tied down boys.
Too bad, because Bentonian could stand a small push.
Don Pulley and Lou ought to ring it up soon. Jack

All this has really been AMONG the beers. Any

Present Dean of Law
This year saw a change in the leadership of the School
of Law of the University of Kansas City. Dean Ben-
jamin F. Boyer left us to become Dean of the School of
Law of Temple University in Philadelphia. Dean Boyer,
who had been a member of the faculty here since 1937
and dean since 1940, received his Bachelor of Law de-
gree from Missouri university in 1928. During 1940-41
he was a Special Graduate Fellow at Columbia Univer-
sity Law school where he received the LL.M. degree.
His graduate research was in Contracts and was super-
vised by Edwin W. Patterson, Cardozo professor of Juris-
prudence at Columbia. Called to active duty in the
armed forces in the latter part of 1941, he attained the
rank of colonel and served more than three years at the
Command and General Staff school at Fort Leavenworth.
Rudolph Heitz, who became dean on February 1,
1947 at the end of the first semester, is an associate of
the law firm of Lathrop, Crane, Sawyer and Righterg
and former part-time member of the faculty of the
School of Law. Dean I-Ieitz, who received his Bachelor
of Law degree from Missouri university in 1934 and
his LL.M. from the University of Michigan in 1942, has
served as an advisor of the sub-committee on Sugges-
tion and Plans for the Missouri Supreme Court, and is
a member of the Committee on Practice and Procedure
for that Court.

This year, in addition to their duties of presiding
over all activities, the officers of the School of Law
devised other tasks to keep them busy. Believing
that the students needed more opportunities of get-
ting acquainted with each other, the officers gave a
Law school mixer at the start of the year. This
dance was so well received that it is hoped it will
become an annual event.
During the course of the year, the student body
decided that the charter of the school needed re-
vising. As a result of this decision, Vice-president
Parker was appointed chairman of a committee to
formulate a new one. When the final draft of the
new charter was completed, it was submitted to the
Student Council, and was approved without delay.

Phi Alpha Delta, professional law fraternity, was
organized in 1898 by a group of law students of two
colleges in Chicago, Illinois. Today it has over 20,000
members located in sixty-one chapters at all the
prominent law schools in the United States.
Thomas Hart Benton chapter was installed at the
Kansas City School of Law in 1907 and has continued
to expand and enlarge with that institution, moving
along with it when absorbed by the University.
This year, Thomas Hart Benton chapter had the
honor of playing host to the 26th biennial convention
of Phi Alpha Delta, which was held at the President
hotel during the New Year season. The chapter was
well represented at this conference by B. L. Parker
and Filbert Munoz.

appointed representatives of three law fraternities
QDelta Phi Delta, founded 19013 Alpha Kappa Phi,
founded 1902g Theta Lambda Phi, founded 1903,
conferred and resolved themselves into one fraternity
under the name of Delta Theta Phi Law fraternity.
Since the entire membership of each became members
of the new Delta Theta Phi Law fraternity, the fra-
ternity really dates its origin from 1901.
Those Greek letters were chosen because they em-
body one letter from the former name of each of the
three constituent fraternities, and because it was be-
lieved at that time that no fraternity with a similar
Now the Kansas City School of Law has become
the School of Law of the University of Kansas City,
and Snyder senate of Delta Phi Law fraternity has
moved along with it. After a period of inactivity
during the war, the senate is again flourishing at the
University, due in a large part to the work of the
greater Kansas City alumni senate and Cecil Holt,
the only active member when the school year began.
The senate is indeed proud to count as a brother Delta
Thet, Dean Rudolph Heitz of the Law school. He
is a member of Bliss senate, University of Missouri.
Snyder senate is pardonably proud of its record at
the old Kansas City School of Law, and it seems cer-
tain that an even brighter future is in store for
Delta Theta Phi now that it is back in full swing at
S100 Rockhill Road. The fine cooperative spirit of
Phi Alpha Delta and Phi Delta Phi and of former
Dean Boyer, Dr. Decker and the faculty is gratefully
acknowledge by Snyder senate.

Kappa Beta Pi, the first legal sorority in the world,
was founded at Chicago-Kent College of 'Law on
December 15, 1908, by ten women law students and,
since that time, has expanded to more than fifty chap-
ters throughout the United States, Canada, England
With the installation of Alpha Mu chapter at
Osgoode Hall Law school, Toronto, Canada, on No-
vember 12, 1925, Kappa Beta Pi became inte1national
in scope, and when, on November 26, 1927, Alpha
Omicron chapter was installed at the University of
Paris, Kappa Beta Pi became the first Greek letter
organization to install a chapter on the European con-
tinent. Beta Alpha chapter was chartered at London,
England, on july 24, 1940.
Charters are issued only in schools approved by the
American Bar association and the Association of
American Law schools. Kappa Beta Pi is affiliated
with the Inter-American Bar association and is a
member of the Professional Panhellenic association.
Theta chapter Was installed at the Kansas City
School of Law on January 2, 1917, with three stu-
dents and one alumna initiated as charter members.
Since that time ninety Women have been initiated
into Theta chapter, seven of whom have now joined

pointment of the late President Roosevelt.
Theta has furnished Grand chapter with two Grand
Deans-Lenore Simpson and Bernice Wesner, and our

On November 11, 1911, five women students in
law at the University of Southern California, frontier
breakers in the realm of the profession, banded to-
gether to promote the highest standard of professional
ethics and culture among women in this and other law
schools and in the legal profession at large. The
passage of thirty-five years since 1911 has seen the
growth of Phi Delta Delta from five to twenty-three
hundred members. She now has chapters in every
important law school in the United States, with seven
associates in foreign countries.
The fraternity was the first women's organization
to join the Inter-American Bar association, and is a
member of the Legal Panhellenic council. Chapters
may be established only in schools or colleges of law
which are members of the American Law school asso-
ciation or which are on the list approved by the
American Bar association.
Members of the fraternity are giving serious
thought to ways and means of establishing and main-
taining peace throughout the world, and to this end,
arrangements have been made that Phi Delta Delta
will have a permanent pass for an official observer to
attend all open sessions of the United Nations,
through whom information will be received and any
worthwhile ideas on world peace may be presented
to the proper officials.
Psi chapter was organized at the Kansas City School
of Law on May 2, 1925. The chapter maintains the
standard of excellence set by Phi Delta Delta. Every
initiate must have attained a grade of at least fifteen
per cent higher than the passing grade of the law
school. Many prominent members have achieved pro-
fessional excellence in Kansas City and in other cities
throughout the United States.

Recent developments in medical and pharma-

education for the pharmacist. This school has pledged
itself to meet the demand, and is now laying founda-
tions for leadership in pharmaceutical education.
Each year there is more need for research and gradu-

The School of Pharmacy was established as the

1885, and operated as an independent educational
institution for fifty-eight years. In 1943, through
the cooperation of the administrators of the Uni-

The student branch of the American Pharmaceuti-
cal association was established on the campus of the
University in the spring of 1945. It is the local chap-
ter of the American Pharmaceutical association which
has branches in every School of Pharmacy in the
The purpose of this student branch is to encourage
the advancement of pharmacy as a science and as a
profession, especially in fostering education in mat-
ters involving pharmacy in all of its branches and
applicationsg to promote the health and prosperity of
communities in which it shall be the lot of our mem-
bers to work as students or graduates and to promote
the general welfare of the University of Kansas City.
Since its establishment, the association has spon-
sored in cooperation with each major pharmaceutical
house at least one scientific speaker or picture. It
has been its policy to bring at least one speaker to the
campus each month. Timely topics are selected by
the student committee and submitted for acceptance
to the student body.
The Christmas party, the Graduation party and
the annual picnic of the School of Pharmacy are
sponsored by the association which, through these,
tend to develop better harmony and good fellowship
among the students in the school.
All athletic activities of the school are centered in
the student association. The softball team of the
American Pharmaceutical association won the intra-
mural championship of the campus the past year, and
this marked the first time that any pharmacy team has
been so successful.
The student branch has 176 members which makes
it one of the larger organizations on the campus. Its
representatives take an active part in all the under-
takings of the other student groups on the campus
which serves to bring about better harmony between
the School of Pharmacy and the University as a whole.

the course of life-that is the day that the staff has
been preparing for. Between the covers of the 1947
Bushwhacker is a time capsule, buried for future
generations. The staff has attempted to record a
little of our college, so that minutes pass by until
the years grow in decades, you, of the class of the
year nineteen hundred and forty-seven, will draw
this issue of the Bushwhacker from the shelf, fondly
thumb through its pages as the time spent in these
halls is relived again-it is then that the Editor and
Staff hope that even if only uttered in the faintest
of whispers, you will say, "That was the bect year-
book our school ever had."
JUHN J.5THEEH EHAHLES PHUETT
bedicqted to can bean
We, the students of The University of Kansas City,
School of Dentistry, dedicate this 1947 volume of the
"Bushwhacker', to our Dean, Roy James Rinehart,
who has devoted his life to the upbuilding of our
school and who has brought order, dignity, and na-
tional acclaim to our institution.
Not only do we appreciate these great gifts, but
we want him to know of our profound appreciation
for his interest in every student who comes here for
dental instruction. The name of Roy James Rinehart
will live forever indelibly impressed in the hearts of
those who know him.
"The educational policies of our Dean have led
toward definite goals, but they have been sufficiently
flexible to successfully meet the trends in dental edu-
cation. His policies have been progressive, but well
tempered with a sense of the practical values. He has
Continuously encouraged better teaching, improved
teaching methods and better standards of student
accomplishment. Organizations such as the Council
on Dental Education, the Curriculum Survey Com-
mittee and the American Association of Dental
Schools have been strongly supported by our Dean in
his effort to keep the University of Kansas City,
School of Dentistry, among the outstanding dental
institutions of the United States. .
"Dean Rinehart has made his counsel available to
those in need of it and has welcomed constructive
criticism. He allows his faculty much freedom of
action and encourages initiative.
"The students express their sincere appreciation
of Dean Roy Rinehart's long and faithful service
of thirty-six years to dental education and the dental
profession, the deep interest and human understanding
displayed in his contacts with student life, the loyalty
and friendliness in his relations with his students.
The yearbook has two general aims. First, it should
be a real memory book, a kind of glorified family
album, showing pictures of every student and faculty
member connected with the school. Secondly, it
should be the complete history of one year of school
At first the yearbook was a memory album for
seniorsionly. In the beginning, seniors exchanged
pictures and, in some cases, pasted them into albums
together with newspaper clippings to serve as re-
minders of school days. In early days, class rivalries
were intense. Since that time, we have substituted
szhool spirit for rivalry between schools and today,
you are graduated fiom a certain high school instead
of from the class of 1898 or 1916.
Eventually printed yearbooks came into being. In
the late eighties, halftones were developed and some
yearbooks used this new method of photo reproduction
and began producing printed yearbooks. Tremendous
possibilities opened up to enterprising editors with the
new device for picture reproduction and began pro-
ducing printed yearbooks. We might Wonder why
annual editors did not start immediately to produce
streamlined books similar to the 1946 All Americans.
But things just don't happen that way. Yearbooks
move slowly toward perfection, in the same way auto-
mobiles do. It has taken the great automobile industry
with its highly paid designers and engineers 25 years
to get over the idea that an automobile ishould look
like and be constructed like a carriage.
Today the function of the yearbook is the same as
it was before printed annuals made their appearance.
It should still be a memory book, or family album of
the school. Studies of yearbook sales show that the
number of books purchased depends upon the number
of people whose pfctures appear in the annual.
This section of the Kangaroo you are now reading
is known as the Bushwhacker, it is the yearbook of
the School of Dentistry. It has been compiled and
edited as a separate entity from the rest of the year-
book, and was edited and composed solely by students
of the School of Dentistry, and was not composed or
edited by staff members of the rest of the book. As
a matter of, fact, the first time the editor of the
Kangaroo has seen or heard about our section was
when the book was finished and delivered by the
printer. This explanation is given so that there will
be no wonde.ing as to why the Bushwhacker section
is colonial in style and the rest of the book is mod-
ernistic in style.
Among those who gave invaluable help are John
Streck, who assisted with photographs.
E. L. Fox and Art Taubman assisted in obtaining
information about the underclassmen, and Art Lind-
quist, the Freshman Psi Omegan, helped by handling
all affairs dealing with students on the 51st street
Our thanks also to Miss Helen Adams, Mrs.
Genevieve Roth and Miss Bernadine Summe for
proofreading and suggestions. And especially to Miss
Mary Orr, Miss Ma'garet Potts and Mrs. Elizabeth
Stroup, the unforgettable ladies in the accounting
office who paid all the bills and kept the creditors
from cur door. And if it werenit for Mrs. Mary
Huffman and her help from the library, many a day
would have been more tiresome. For this we want
to express our deepest thanks.
And to Kirk Hoerman for drawing the splendid
cartoons, to Jim "Moose" Miller for the sports articles,
to Bill Hulen- for the fraternity articles-and all
others who so willingly helped, we say in deepest
WE LUUH HEAVE WARD
Here we see the clean, unirnprinted sky, blown by
gentle winds . . . peaceful again, free at last.
Here, there will be no shaft of stone, no marble
arch . . . no Gettysburg . . . no Flanders Field . . .
Yet here was a great field of battle . . . where gal-
lant men flew and fought, daring death, suffering
death . . . triumphing over death.
Their victories have made secure this sky-ancient
altar of man's hope, symbol of his freedom, empire
of his future progress.
American's lift their eyes to the sky today . . . and
remember the 'simple thanlefulness the courage and
sacrifices of the men who made it forever free.
Few people are callous or stupid enough to say that
war is actually a good or desirable thing. But certain
people contend that war exists to save the world from
over population. Charming and heart-Warming
thought, isn't it.
Let's see if the bookkeeping of the first World
War bears it out. We could use the second World
War as an example, but there are countries on the
earth today from which we cannot obtain a record of
lives lost or money spent-besides it would be too
appalling-so let's take the first World War. In that
war, it cost 525,000 to kill one man. That's the offi-
cial price tag on each of those little wooden crosses
that bloom where poppies used to grow.
Invested at a modest 5 percent, 525,000 would give
a return of 51,250 each year. The average income for
the head of a family in the United States prior to
1940 wasn't much over S1,000. It was and is much
less than that in other countries.
So it seems the world got stuck. We paid too high
a price to get rid of those 17,000,000 men killed in the
first conflict-men who might have been "excess
population" to some, but not to the people who loved
And now, with better equipment, the world, if
allowed to enter another war is better prepared.
525,000 will be a bargain price for blowing a decent
human to hell, and the number of dead will not be
countable on even the latest adding machine.
But gruesome figures, and deploring the monstro-
sity of two recent World Wars will not stop the next.
The one thing that can stop it is an aroused public
opinion of hitherto unknown magnitude.
We must convince the world, and perhaps even
cram it down their throats until they digest it and
it is assimilated by their brain--that we intend to
have peace-even if we have to fight for it.
Then we will have peace.
And it is our responsibility, as educated professional
men-as leaders, it is up to us to obtain peace, not by
licking the boots of a foreign power, but by fighting
for it if necessary. if
-Then, thank God, there will be peace!

DREAMS AT CAPISTRANO
Near Capistrano by the Pacific sea
Idly dreaming one summer day,
Under the pepper trees I lay,
And ever the scented summer breeze
Awake in the fragrant pepper trees
A wonderful melody.
I watched the clouds in the California sky,
Fanciful shapes of castles grand,
Floating over the sea and land,
And the darting sea gulls soar and dive,
And the white-winged sailboats which seerned alive
As they drif'ed slowly by. l
The waves broke low on the shining sand,
Scattering everywhere beautiful shells
Ifroin the blue Pacificis mysterious cells,
And sentinel like the huge gray rocks,
That had braved the storm and the tempesfs shocks
Guarded the beautiful land.
Afar in the east hung the crescent moon,
And the sun stood low in the royal west,
Gilding the palms upon the crest
Of the rugged cliff with a jubilant fire,
And the wind, which sung like a sweet toned lyre
Died away in a peaceful swoon.
And there came a ship toward the Capistrano shore
Radiant all were her sails so white
With the glowing hue of the sun's rich light,
And I said, "Tis my ship, she comes this day,".
And lo, while I spoke she passed away,
Like those which had gone before.
Ah, many a ship have I sent to sea,
With costliest freight a ship can hold-
Hopes more precious by far than gold-
Sent them adrift in my .boyh0od's time,
And now in old age, joyless prime
They never come back to me.
It is a commonplace to call your attention to the
fact that you are most fortunate in being citizens
of the United States of America in the year 1947.
Few people on this distracted earth are so lucky.
If you lived in the parts of the world where most
people live, where those nearest to you by blood and
culture dwell, you would not even have the privilege
of choosing whether you would go to college. Your
parents would not be free to decide whether they
would send you. That would be decided by the state
and usually would depend on the social stratum in
which your birth had placed you.
It is no merit of yours that you were born in the
United States instead of Europe. That piece of good
fortune came to you providentially. But since you
are in the United States and at the University of
Kansas City, you can show that you appreciate the
country of your birth and can justify your presence
in this institution by preparing for useful citizenship
and admirable living.
It sounds like bombast to say that we live in the
greatest country on earth, but it is the simple truth.
The Country, the State, the University of Kansas
City are all your good fortune. Remember this when
there is a temptation to speak slightingly of your
Country, your State, your School. Think of the
hundreds of thousands who have no Country, no
state, no school and of the millions of others who,
having them, have still no liberty.
"The occasion must naturally bring together many
who have no special knowledge of dentistry than such
as they have gained while sitting in one of those magic
chairs which fit alike the giant and the dwarf, which
would accommodate the visitors of Procrustes and
suit itself to all the transformation of Proteus. Were
this an assemblage of dentists and dental students only
who would dare to open his mouth for speech before
the members of a profession in whose presence kings
are silent, at whose command eloquence is struck
dumb, and even the irresistible and irrepressible voice
of a woman is hushed into a brief interval of repose?"

he does like girls. Mac intends to go back to Arkansas, Where food is

a debt of 10,013 cigarettes owed to various and sundry people. Also, we

Jim Miller is a paradox of paradoxes, being a Texan that isn't a six-
footer. Jim picked up the Latin habit of taking it easy, but if necessity
called, he could be a bundle of energy. He always had enough "Charley
horses" to run more races than Santa Anita-and always had enough
bets outstanding to break the bank at Monte Carlo. In academics, jim,s
trials were many but with his eyes focused on that degree, he never
failed to stay a jump ahead of the academic referees. Studied about as
often as the swallows returned to Capistrano-once a year.

In spite of being a cop, Joe is one of the best Joes We have in our class.
Many a dental student has Joe to thank for fixing a ticket or minor
infraction of the law. After graduation, Kansas will have the honor of
being host to the Musser family. Joe tries to live down the fact that
he is a wire bender, but being a sincere believer in fair play, and a true
friend, Joe has earned the respect of all.

Pete perhaps should be nicknamed "Horse Power," for he has more of
this than three other men of the same build. As a surgery frequenter,
Pete has demonstrated the greatest proficiency in the painless extraction
of the teeth. His beaming smile makes everyone with whom he comes
in contact feel that it is sincere. Pete isn't one to complain of the
weather in this part of the country, but he certainly doesn't appreciate
its effects on his Antrum of Highmore. Fortunately for him, he found
that General Hospital is a good place for more things than Clinical
Joe came to the University fresh from Oklahoma hill country, and,
used to plenty of fzeedom, stepped into what might be termed a rugged
freshman year. Being a very strong-willed person, Joe had difficulty
with dental school at first, but by his senior year he had admirably
adapted himself to it. Joe is definitely not an ordinary person, as his
many friends, both male and female, will attest. He will always be
rcmembeed as a fellow who tolerated dental school, and who managed
to go three years without paying any fraternity dues. He has been
engaged so many times, he has had to go outside of Kansas City to find
new material. Reported to buy frat pins by the dozen. A good Joe.

"Why man, I'm still a virgin!" Those were always Don's words, until
one sunny October day in 1946 a bundle of heaven arrived at the Parry

Don's life, but there are other things that he will be remembered for.
For instance, how could anyone ever forget that broken-down Ford or
those marks he piled up every term, or the time he walked into a gas-
filled basement with a blazing torch in his hand, and threatened to sue

Ray, the sharp at the Bridge Table, is also plenty sharp in the clinical
and practical side of dentistry. It is indeed fortunate for the profession
that men of Ray's caliber are members. His personality will carry him a
long way, and with his knowledge of the field we know that his success
is assured. Being a married man, Ray found time for many other things
than dentistry, and it is indeed uncommon to see a week go by without

One characteristic that Sanford called to mind was affability. His
genial, amiable personality made for him a host of friends. Along with
this Congeniality, "San" exhibited a remarkable astuteness. Profoundly
conscious of his profession, he took a genuine interest in current events-
political, military and social. Whether it be for his good-natured tall

Without the aid and assistance of Little Charlie Pruett, we would be

was the photographer. With a wife to keep him on the straightpath,
Charlie was always known for being in the thick of the battle when the
question was right versus wrong. And because of Charlie, we had more

We are not kidding when we say that W. H. Pumphrey is ten years
behind time, and the loss to the class of 1937 is the gain of the class of
1947. Pumphrey was frequently worried about the possibility that he
would graduate in September, 1947, instead of June, 1947. This we
doubt, due to his close association with many faculty members and the
fact that outside of a few minor errors, W.H. is one of the better
students in the class. Worked his way half way thru dental school by
doing gold work for the big boys downtown. Pump represented that
clique in the college known as married students. We predict that it
won't be many New Year eves before Pump is right up there in the
same bracket as the big boys who copped a sheepskin a decade ago
And besides all this, Pumphrey has a mustache!

That swell party by the name of Bushwhacker Ball was due in large
measure to Psi Omegan George Rhoades. George has a perpetual grin,
a ready wit and a personality that can convince Ely Culbertson that the
Brooklyn Bridge is just another game. With these attributes, George
will always be surrounded by a host of friends, and we will remember
him for many years. Without his level-headed advice, many a problem
we have faced here in dental school would have been way out of pro-

George in the years to come. '

Al came to the university here as a result of his good friend Gov.
Warren's thoughtfulness. But Calif0rnia's loss was our gain, and we
had a very good classmate. His only faults were too close association
with Psi Omegan Enslie Schilb and Red Stone-not to mention the fact
that Al came from the wrong part of California-the northern part.
Unmarried, Al remained aloof from the common problems of dental
school and went his merry way and to the surprise of some he turned
out to be a fairly good operator. His ambition is to practice in California,
staying in the northern part of the state, well out of the territory of the
Street Brothers who intend to make the southern part of the state their
home. A swell Joe, and we hope to hear more from and about Al.

Tom was one of the best, if not the best man that Psi Omega frater-

knew. After graduation, Tom's first step is to enter the state of marriage
and then probably the Navy will obtain his services for at least a year.
Ranking high academically, Tom was quiet and the type of student of
whom Dr. Moore or Dr. Sawyer would be proud. He was Dr. Kelly's
assistant, unofficially, in the surgery department, and long will be
remembered. Tom is a strong supporter of the Saint Appolonian Guild.

Taking it easy was strictly the motto of our Mr. Schaefer, and even
so, he was able to come out in the upper bracket of his class. Much of
the credit for his success goes to classmates, who were able to see that
Schaefer did the right things at the right time and thus have his name on
a sheepskin when they were handed out. His one and greatest weakness
was Dr. Moore's senior review exams, and he supplied Street with notebook
paper all thru four years of dental school. Quiet, but with a likable
personality, J. C. will have little difficulty in gaining wide repute as a
professional man of considerable ability.

Enslie is the type that worries little about graduation, or anything
else. He doesn't have to, since he is always ready to cope with any
situation that might arise. We might nickname him "Speed',, since he
never seems to be in a hurry to do anything, but manages somehow to
get it done with a minimum of effort. As a practical joker, Schilb can
receive as well as dish it out. Enslie's greatest asset is his quiet manner
and pleasing personality. Not being a waster of words, you can always
bank on what he says. Having reached the highest in integrity, Enslie
can now only ask for many years of practice, and we know that they
will all be fruitful years for him.

The American Dental Association, with head-
quarters in Chicago, is the guiding organization of
all ethical dentists and dental societies in the United
States. Each dental college has a junior chapter con-
taining as members those students in the last two
years of their dental education.
The purpose of the Junior American Dental Asso-
ciation is to encourage the dental student to become
a leader and ethical member of the profession, and
. . Viet'-Prr'si:fz'11l
to prepare him for the place he will take in the pro-
fession and society when he receives his Doctor of
Dental Surgery degree.
The newly elected dental association fjuniorj
officers are Jerry Marsico, Presidentg A. Glaubman,
Vice-President, and James Blackwell, Secretary-
Treasurer. These men will guide the association
throughout the Junior Year, and will inculcate the
ethics of the profession to the members.
Each year, seven graduating dental seniors who are
in the upper part of their class, are selected for
"Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges."
The selection is made by the Student Council and

Determined to make the second
annual Bushwhaeker Ball even big-
ger than the first, held last year,
those in charge went all out to ob-
tain the most beautiful and intelli-
gent girls on the campus as candi-
dates for queen. Mr. Earl Carroll
of Hollywood, California, made the
final decision as to who would be
Queen Bushwhacker II.
Richard T. Street, Editor of the
Bushwhacker, turned the whole
matter over to George Rhoades, who
had much experience with things
like these. Hard working, George
lost little time in lining up a few
fellows who liked to work just as
hard as he did. Together they dug
in and worked smoothly, long, and
intelligently and the result was the
Bushwhacker Ball of February 3,
1947-a dance than will never be
forgotten, and one that will not be
duplicated for Z1 long time.
Assisting George Rhoades and
those responsible for making the
second Bushwhacker Ball such a tre-
mendous success were Kirk Hoer-
man, Mrs. Genevieve Roth, John B.
Street, Jr., John B. Streck, Gordon
Bennett, and the three dental fra-
Pla-Mor ballroom, and thu
me er a was held in 1946 at the

become the biggest and most formal dance on the campus.

Doc Brackett was the dentist in our town and
was a fine man, a credit to his profession. For years
he doctored more people than any other dentist in
Our Town. But he made less money. That was
because Doc Braekett was always doing dentistry
for poor people who had no money to pay.
He would get up in the middle of the night to
patch up some fellow's jaw that was broken
stop the toothache of some woman or child.
Everybody in Our Town knew Doc's office over
Anderson's Drug Store. A sign at the foot of the
narrow stairs said:
DR. BRACKETT, D.D.S.
Doe Brackett was a bachelor. He was once sup-
posed to marry Miss Elvira Cromwell, the banker's
daughter, but on his wedding day Doc had to stay
in his office and fix the broken jaw of a
Mexican child that had fallen from the top of a
barn. Miss Elvira got sore and called off the wed-
ding. She said that a man who would think more
of a Mexican child than of his wedding was no good.
Many women in Our Town agreed with Miss Elvira,
but the parents of the Mexican child were very grate-
ful to Doc when the child recovered without his
face being all disfigured.
For forty years the young and the old climbed
the stairs to Doc Brackett's office. He never turned
Doc lived to be 70 years old, and then one day
he keeled over while working at the side of his chair,
and died. There was one of the biggest funerals
ever seen in Our Town. Everybody went.
There was talk, even amongst the dental society,
of raising money to put a nice tombstone on Doc
Brackett's grave as a memorial. The talk got as far
as arguing about what should be carved on the
stone. But the matter dragged along and nothing
was ever done.
Then one day Tom Belford, the undertaker, said
that Doe Brackettys memorial was already over his
grave, with an cpitaph and all. Tom Belford said
the Mexican parents of the child Doc Brackett
patched up many years ago had worried about him
having no tombstone. They had no money them-
selves, so they took the sign from the foot of the
stairs at Doc's office and stuck it over his grave.

Directed, and very capably, we might add, by
Mrs. Milum and Mrs. Huffman, the library of the
School of Dentistry probably contains more books
and information on the
profession of dentistry
than any similar library
in the world.
During the past year,
due to efforts of men
like Dr. Rinehart and
Dr. F. W. Huntington,
and others interested in
the growth of the li-
brary, many improve-
ments have been com-
pleted in this depart- Mary Huffman
ment, and it will prob-
ably be only a short time before a new and still
larger library section will be required to house the
Improvements in the School of Dentistry library
the past year are a matter of pride. A recent addi-
tion is a microfilm projection machine, presented by
Dr. Glenn E. Willhelmy, an alumnus. This enables
the library to increase its service by offering to
obtain films of any books or periodicals which are
not currently available in the School of Dentistry
An effort is being made to supply the graduate
students with material needed for their individual
research problems. The library has also been a source
of information for those preparing talks on dentistry
or papers for publication.
Three new indirect lights brighten every corner
of the stackroom and make browsing a pleasure. Two
metal desks replace the old equipment, and give the
librarians adequate work space.
A light, presented by members of the faculty of
the School of Dentistry, has been placed over the
oil portrait of the Dean to give it suitable illumina-
tion. This portrait hangs in the library reading room.
The 1947 edition of Encyclopedia Britannica is a
welcome addition to the reference collection. The
Dental Periodical Index, also a reference aid, which
appears every third year in a cumulative volume, is
now kept up to date by a card file of current maga-

The profession can well be proud of the organi-
zation known as the Federated Guilds of Saint

And the school can be
proud of this organiza-

faculty members are

Saint Appollonia, as you know, is the patron Saint
of dentistry, and the organization is named after her.
The work of this society concerns the dental care
of children who could not otherwise afford dental
care. It compares to the work done by the Lowry
Clinic. Orphan children of Kansas City who cannot
afford dental care are taken care of by members of
the Saint Appollonian Guild. Each week a certain
number of children come to the clinic and their
dental health is looked after by student members of
The Guild also publishes a magazine, "The Appol-

Here, courteous reader, we commence our alma-
nack of the Senior Classe of the University of Kansas
Citye, School of Dentistry, from the time of incep-
tion in September of last year to June 1, this year,
at which time the good Lord did graduate them as
Doctors of Dental Surgery to the Publick.
No longer did we have to climb to such fearsome
heights as the fourth Tier to witness demonstrations
by the galvanic Dr. Leslie Eisenbrant and his lady
assistant. We learned of strange and terrible things
that did happen during the idle months of summer.
Many of the fair maidens of the campus had ob-
tained husbands and the remaining eligibles were
being pursued in a knightly manner by the many
volunteers who have laid down their muskets for a
more peaceful mode of life. Also, during this summer
period, the faculty did vote to combine the denticle
school Bushwhacker with the Kangaroo, a book pub-
lished several kilometers away on the main campus.
When the seniore classe did obtain knowledge of this
fusion, terrible odors did raise from classe meetings,
only to be neutralized by the gracious words of our
venerable dean. One Thomas White, Esq., confirmed
rumors that he would take the hand of a fair maid
in wedlock, duplicating the acts of several other
students who had faith in the future, and hope that
the honourable Doctor Carl Sawyer would graduate
them and allow them to practice their trade.
Other strange and terrible things did happen.
The Bughwhacker ball could not be held until Febru-
ary. The Mighty Psi Omegans caused havoc too
terrible to relate, by pledging almost the entire Fresh-
man Classe. Also, we perceive many of our brethren
walking through the halls, bending bits of wire, and
they are called orthodontists.
To win the esteem of the Governours of the
School, many of the students exposed themselves to
the rigors of a foil devised and named by one G. V.
Black as a classe three. Also, Marie obtained equip-
ment from Bacon Sc Company which permitted her
to transmit sound and even carry her voice across
all partitions of the school, and some reports even
stated, although unverified, that her voice was heard
near the Checkerboard in the recreation room, and
patrons named Davis, Crockett and Schilb, all in
good health and sound of mind, did proclaim that
they heard her voice on this marvelouse machine over
the rum spigot at Milton's Olde Tavern.
Also, the drygoods store of the Hudson's Bay Co.
in Hibbing, in the colonie of Minnesota, was sued
by Big John Anderson for. selling him foot gear
which matched not in colour, style or model, the
same causing him additional pain as a result of jibes
from maids and men of our Citye.
Gordon Bennett was placed in the Stocks on
Publick View for not paying heed for finej for
navigating his infernal machine, called a Horseless

Carriage, thru the lanes of our Citye at a speed
frowned upon by the Governour's agent, Joe Musser,
and his magistrates. Raymond Paull and Donald
Elmer Perry, both swain of Honourable intentions,
did negotiate Bennett's release.
Also, a curious green machine owned by Jeff Toma
did make its appearance. At first believed to be a
submarine, it later proved to be a horseless carriage
that did move under its own power, causing great
talk wherever it was seene-mostly in lanes of Swope
Park at night, and it is sometimes reported that a
maid was in the same seat with him.
Many students of the school were caught with
their pantaloons dangling when Keepers of the
Records, Vesta, Nelle and Louise, did make their
records Publick, and show many swain lacking in
Terrible panic did sweep the school when letters
came from Governour Moore asserting that privileges
of graduation would be denied unless the terrible and
humiliating senior review examinations were passed
with satisfactory grades.
John Carnes, Jr., and Halcon Kibby, Esq., did
become student instructors by virtue of some phe-
nomenon known as vacuum. J. W. Adams, with
diligent guidance, inserted his sixth root canal filling
which he stated to be supericr to those of previous
placement. Hal Kennedy, by a marvelous New Pro-
cess, did place his seventy-sixth unit of Crown and
Bridge. John Stone, without the presence of pain,
did remove from a patient the five hundred and
sixth tooth without the expiration of one patient.
Edgar McClesky, the Arkansas Gentleman, contain-
ing the class of 47's largest Thyroid, did have graded
one set of edentulous X-rays to cause the adding
machine of Nellie to go to five thousand and six
Meanwhile, idle citizens of the school sat at the
Follie Burlesque on Twelfth Street or did pursue an
aimless pastime known as football, in which one
Charles Kouri did great damage to his opponents
and allowed Benjamin Casey Sharp to fall on the
ball, the object to keep the ball out of the other one's
hand. Also of great importance in this game of
keeping the ball covered were Kirk Hoerman and
Richard Wohlgemuth, late of the colonie of Kansas.
The mighty Psi Omegans gave excuse for many
to inebriate themselves to a state of euphoria by
giving a ball at the Garrett Inn with monie and

The Delta Sigma Deltas gave their interfraternity
dance at an inn known as the Sky-Hi Roof, and
also this dance was well received, with the usual toll
from John Barleyeorn. J. P. Brown and John Carnes,
Jr., went about in usual informal way, inviting the
Honourable Dr. Carl Sawyer and Dr. Rosenthal to
be their guests at their quaffing table. Robert
Tindall, Musician Extraordinary, did add much
volume to the tunes of Warren Durrett's Minuet
group. "Mabel, Mabel" and Bourbon were the
choices of the fraternal revelers.

seniors to thumb in amalgams. George Rhoades was
heard to say after his first amalgam test, "My dili-
gence was sure to expose something."
James Miller, Esq., did journey to Columbia, the
settlement center of Missouri culture, where he
courageously defended the honor of his fair maiden
against the unmannered advances of three brawny
Casanovas, only to return with swelling and dis-
colorations of many portions of the anatomy. Charles
C. Wilson, the Kentucky Pugalist, better known as
Blue Boy, found many awed spectators when he
awakened from the miracle sleep of Surgeon Stewart
Many strangers were seen plugging gold foils on
the Clinic floor and this was known as the Kansas
State Board examination.
A man of the village by name of W. H. Pumphrey
did pass one and two gold foil tests, even though said
gold foils did not possess a lingual wall after polishing.
C. V. Williams became the chief of a tribe known as
Zips. H. R. Akye did make sixteen units of partial
dentures with grade of A.
Edgar McClesky did pass the record by earning ten
thousand points on the clinic floor. A soldier named
Frank Twitty frequently visited Omaha, and after
relating his experiences in the Great World War con-
flict to his young son, his son askedg "But why did
they need all those other soldiers then?"
John D. Wathen, a Great sage from the colony of
Kentucky did publish his philosophical utterances, and
said, "The way to fight a woman is with your hat.
Grab it and Run."
john B. Street, also a Great and Learned philoso-
pher, did utter a Great utterance when he said:
"Everybody is able to give pleasure in some way.
One person may do it by entering a room, another by
leaving a room."
Harvey Varner and Curtis Vague did continue their
education of hostesses for a company that flies air-
planes thru the Sky, known as TWA. Thus educated,
the girls were reported to be able to make more money.
During Aprile many students did continue to take
the gold foil tests, and even Enslie Schilb did take the
test. Psi Omegan Art Taubman did burn the midnight
whale oil assisting ye editor with the Bushwhacker.
Although disputed, Utah is reported to have trounced
the colony of Kentucky in the Great Sport of Basket-
ball. Joseph Musser, keeper of the Village Brig, did
trim his mustache for the first and only time this
year. J. K. Lipscombe did make plans to return to
his home in the colony of Florida.
One night Donald Parry, a swashbuckling swain,
did tell his wife that he would point out her defects,
and she replied, "That won't be necessary as I know
all about them, as it was those defects that kept me
from getting a better man than you."
The Great One known as Jerry Adams did apply
for a commission in the Colonial Army as ye dental
interne, as did Bill Duensing and R. T. Street. Only
Bill Duensing was accepted according to latest reports,
and Street and Adams are still waiting for word from
the Colonial forces in the city of Washington on
Senor Max Sanchez, governor of the Spanish colony,
did serve a chili dinner to a few friends that was any-
thing but chilly.
From many villages came the news that the bender
of wires, Ted Bennion, had moved a cuspid to the
molar position and was attempting to work out a
system whereby he and others could figure out how
to get it back in place.
From the colony of Kentucky came Franklin Davis
and James Croley, and took up residence with a
frontiersman named Olen Crockett. Davis and
Crockett did meet two juvenile girls and did visit
with them in such a manner as to render them liable
to an interneship in the brig-due to the tender ages
of the females. They were successful in not being
punished for this great and serious offense.
The first month of the new year came peacefully
to our school and village. J. P. Brown, assisted by
Dr. Kraft, did give an anatomy examination. Answers
were to be written by the left hand and in the latin
language. It was an easy examination according to
reports, because two men obtained a grade of above
At the report of clinical points from the ladies of
the cage, Joe Noss obtained twelve clinic points
during 1946. Joe promised to work and slave harder
and earn fifteen points in the new year.
A Great and Terrible calamity did sweep the dental
school when it was learned that Tom Burris was no
longer a free lance pooker, and his pooking was now
legitimate. Tom married and has lived happy under
confinement. One named William Brown does teach

Town meetings were held to complete plans for the

means were planned to smuggle firewater and ale into
the Inn in order to make the dancing of the minuet

a method of smuggling ale into the Inn by hiding
it in flower boxes, but the guards did smell a foul

times of low IQ, did take many photographs and
pictures at the Great Bushwhacker Ball, and later
took the film out of the camera to see if he had any
photographs, but did not develop the film before
looking at it. No photographs.
A new sport was sweeping the village, and it was
called basketball. Several swain from the school in-
dulged in the sport, amongst them were a gentleman
called Moose Miller from Texas, and a Swain named

Brown, and Ralph Johnson, and Tom Burris and a

Found within the confines of this distinguished
institution of knowledge is a small group of students
known collectively as the Junior Class. Though still
in the formative phases of becoming dentists, out-
standing clinical operators and theorists have been
created from out of the vast, exalted curriculum that
have been incorporated in this and the preceeding
Extra-curricular activities with our class, as with
all professional men, serve to broaden and enlighten
the social and community positions: the class as a
whole belongs to the Junior A. D. A.g members of
the class belong to the various national dental fra-
ternities and social fraternities. But, to our class
belongs the distinction as being the most active as
a whole. Physical activities suffered due to the clinic
and the ensuing patients, our championship basket-
ball team of the preceeding years was inactivated,
and our football team dethroned . . . but, our group
continued to function, outstanding were the hay-
rack-sleigh ride, the class picnic and dinner.
Confucius once said, "Learning without thought is
labour lost. Thought without learning is intellectual
deathf' Paralleling this scholar's maxim may be what
may be accepted as the class' motto: Learning and
labor without thought is virtue lost. Learning and
thought without virtue is labor lost. Thus, with the
guidance of learning, labor and thought by the
worthy sages of this noteworthy institution of
knowledge, may we ever progress onward to our goal
of the serving and betterment of humanity.

The Sophomore Class is stoutly composed, put
together with pride and patience, proven by the
extremely long list of potential candidates for the
honor of Omicron Kappa Upsilon found in this
class. Like the reading chair of old, this class of
1949 is a sturdy group . . . and presidented at
present by hard-working xl. l,. McNeel, this class is
one that is going to be hard to surpass. Much of the
credit for the splendid performance of this group
ITlLlSt go to the instructors . . . men like Norman A.

Moore . . . Dr. Forrest W. Huntington . . . Dr.
Lester Gates . . . Dr. Lynval Davidson . . . Dr.
Francis M. Calmes . . . Dr. Carl W. Sawyer. These
instructors, as for years past, have forged a group
of men with knowledge that no other group in the
United States can compare with. To these instruc-
tors, like the colonial carpenter of old, goes the
credit for making something that will be of service
for decades to come . . . a good dentist.
Not too long ago our class was scattered over the
far points of the earth. Most of us were serving in
the armed forces in Europe, Africa, South America,
the South Pacific and Asia, while others were busy
here at home working in defense factories, supplying
the armies abroad. We had but one thought in mind
and that was to finish our job, return to normal
civilian life and, most of all, return to the training
of our choice-Dentistry. Uncle Sam had trained
us for the jobs we were doing in the armed forces
and now he is training us for a more desirable
Along with our class came the headaches of ad-
ministration. The veterans of the class are securing
the present training through the Veterans Adminis-
tration under the G.I. Bill. This training carries
with it the volumes of administration pertaining to
books, instruments, allowances, etc. We are sorry,
Last year as a Freshman' class, we were divided
into two groups. The first group of 31 Neophites
began its training in October, 1945, and completed
its Freshman course in June, 1946. The second group
began its Freshman year in February, 1946, and
finished its last semester in September, 1946, just in
time to start the Sophomore year. At the beginning
of the Sophomore year, the groups joined to become
one class, and we think it is one of the best.
We are now completing our Sophomore year and
are looking forward to the time we can continue our
training in the clinic. We hope that Dr. Sawyer
and Dr. Calmes will bear with us on this new phase
of our training. We will do our best to render
services for which the school can be proud.

The person who could place the above ad would
be our own beloved Alma Mater, the University of
Kansas City School of Dentistry. And the man who
could answer such an ad above would be You-the
student or graduate who is reading this page. And
out of it, like Sears, Roebuck, would come one of
the best professional teams ever known-the team
of Our School and You.
Yes, the most of us have it in our hearts to become
an active alumni member, and most of us will work
hard to make it a powerful organization, one that
will continue to work together to keep our univer-
sity one of the finest of professional training schools
in the world.
Every graduate has a just reason to be proud of
his school and one of the best ways to show appreci-
ation is to be an active member of a strong Alumni
A strong association will not only be able to do
much for the school in the elevation of the dental
profession and the standards of education, but will
prove a great benefit to each member through the
exchange of scientific opinions and methods of prac-
tice in his association with other members.
As a graduate, you owe it to your school, your
profession and those students who will follow in your
footsteps, to belong, support and take an active part
in your University of Kansas City School of Den-
tistry Alumni association.

With apologies, we students on Tenth and Troost
must admit that we are not as well acquainted with
the Freshman dental students out on the campus as
we should be. The necessity for long hard work on
our part, and the fact that even the Freshmen have
long hours fsome days until six p.m.j, it is small
wonder that we can't call all the fellows by their

are veterans, having served in all branches of the
armed services and having earned all ranks from
private and seaman first class on up towards the
Fraternity men will recall that the class practically
pledged Psi Omega fraternity exclusively. And team-
work is the first name of this class of 1950. They
cooperate on a friendly basis, more so than the class of
1947 or any in between. They are out to help one
another--the way it should be in a professional school
such as ours.
From here on the campus, we are not aware of all
the fellows who are potential OKU men in the class
of 1950, but we have spotted a few men who seem to
be leaders-men who do things constructively.
Among the leaders of the class we would select are
Robert Allen, Paul Arther, Calvain Bain, George Bal-
lew, Stanley Blair, Victor Bowles, E. Warner Douglas,
William Hall, Howard Hamilton, Warren Harville,
james Hiatt, his brother William Hiatt, Thomas Hil-
ton, Joe Imoehl, W. D. Jackson, Walter Jones, Ken-
neth Kindred, E. W. Lewis, Arthur Lindquist who was
dental editor of the University News, W. E. Mc-
Murry, Walter Mueller, Curtis Nelson, Charles Rob-
ertson, Robert Reed, Willard Spiller, and probably a
host of others that haven't been brought to our
In the three years to come, it is our prediction, if
the staff can be allowed to predict, that these men
will continue to be the leaders of their class-and
eventually the leaders of their profession.

The fighting senior Dents who were so unjustly
deprived of the 1945 Dental football championship,
showed their prowess by marching to an unbeaten
untied season and the Dental School championship.
To single out an individual star would be impossible,
but not to mention the name of C. M. Kouri, Charles
"Rock" Wilson, Chuck Pruett, Kirk Hoerman and
Jim Miller would be an unforgivable offense. Wil-
son and Pruett, left and right guards respectively,
were the bulwark of a sturdy defensive, and along
with hard charging Charley Kouri at end, the for-
ward wall was impregnable. Mr. "Inside" Hoerman,
who hails from Lyndon, Kansas, was the "brains" of
the team, and his fine ball handling and aggressive-
ness on pass defensive, earned for the second straight
year a position on the Dental All Star Team. Mer-
curial Jim "Mr, Outside" Miller, fleet-footed former
sprint star at Texas A.8LM., was the fastest man in
either the Liberal Arts or the Dental League, and his
kicking was sensational.
Yes, the mighty seniors rest atop as champions,
but they were not the only team that possessed fine
football playeLs. Charley Anderson and Don Wil-
liams stood out for the Juniors, while E. P. "Red
Dog" Huey was somewhat short of a one man team
for the lowly sophomores. Anderson,s reputation as
a pass receiver can well be appreciated Cask the Sen-
iorsj and defensively he was the best in the league,
while Huey,s fine passing highlighted the Sophomore
offensive. Both Huey and Anderson were chosen on
the "All Star" team. Here is the Senior line-up which
appeared at the start of each game:
LE Curtis Vague
LT john Stone
LG C. E. Wilson
C Casey Sharp
RG Charles Pruett QCO-Captj

This is the famous
in the school of dentistry. Their exploits have been written up by Kirk Hoer-
man in the sports section of the Bushwhacker, and we present photographs of
the champs here to corroborate our statement that "the team of 1947 was the
one to remember." They even had a Psi Omegan on the team in the form of
By Jim Miller
Under the sponsorship of Xi Psi Phi Fraternity,
dental students remaining in Kansas City the past
summer organized a softball team to play in the
Heart of America League. Playing in class A compe-
tition, the Zips showed that they were talented in
fields other than dentistry by finishing in a second
place tie "in league standings.
Ably managed by Charles Kouri, the Zips started
the season as unknowns, but fast became favorites
of the fans by their fast, aggressive, clean play and
Pitching chores were handled by Tom Burris who
turned in some outstanding games. Behind the plate
Manager Chailes Kouri reigned, with able assistance
by F. P. Hyey. Sparkplugs of the team were the
two mites, Joe's Hardin 86 Nois. Noss, in addition
to his timely hitting, was a star at shortstop, and
Hardin covered the left fielder's position like a blan-
ket. Kirk Hoerman at first, Frank Dolf and Charles
Wilson sharing second base duties, and E. P. Huey
and Bill O'Donnel alternating at third base rounded
out the infield. In the outfield were such stars as
Bob Hayes, Casey Sharp, Bob Briggs and Tommy
White and Hal Kennedy.
The dental schoolis representation in the basket-
ball competition this year consisted of two teams,
namely, the Xi Psi Phi fraternity group and the
Sophomore Dents. Throughout the season, both
teams showed well in the intramural league play.
The Sophomore Dents, whose roster consisted of J.
Hacker, E. Huey, W. Harper, B. Hayes, T. Dwyer,
D. Church, and C. Anderson, started the season off
by defeating the Law School team, which was later
to go on through the remaining season without an-
other defeat, consequently winning the champion-
The S. Dfs then went into a slight slump by
suffering humiliation by what was dubbed the game
of the season, Zips 36, Sophs 27. The second year
men then came back in the league and completed
the season with a showing of 11 wins and 4 losses,
thus holding fourth place in the University League.
Even though the Sophs placed only fourth in the
competition they placed two very fine players on
the All-Star team. Jake Hacker, 185 pound, 6-footer
from Bolivar, Mo., and former Drury College star,
displayed a wonderful ability for making baskets,
along with aggressive floor work and team play.
He was second high scorer, and received the third
greatest number of votes for All-Star. Bill Harper,
chosen second best in league play, and former South-
western cager, whose speed and ability to fake the
opposition out of position, won the 6-foot, 155-
pound lad many praises from fellow players and
opponents. Defensively outstanding for the Sophs
were E. P. Huey and Bob Hayes.
The basketball team, with their colorful uniforms,
had little trouble defeating every team in the league
play except the Law School, who eeked out a one
point margin in an overtime, and the Faculty team,
which caught the Zipmen riddled by injuries and
also won by the slim margin of two points. Even at
this the Zips gained undisputed possession of the
runner-up po:ition. The Fratmen with a roster con-
sisting of: F. Dolf, R. Wohlgemuth, H. Kennedy,
R. Johnson, K. Hoerman, C. Wilson, B. Sharp,
J. Miller, T. White, won 13 and lost 2 in league play
and won every outside game to have a season record
of 16 wins and 2 losses.
The Zips stressed team work, consequently only
one man was placed on the All-Star team. Kirk Hoer-
man, 6 ft., 180 pounds, forward from Lyndon, Kan-
sas, and former Baker University star, received third
place on the all-stars along with J. Hacker. Kirk,
teamed with Frank Dolf, 6 footer, 160 pounder from
Apache, Oklahoma, and former Oklahoma A. and M.
star, who was the mainstay in setting up plays and
dropping in baskets, were probably two of the most
troublesome forwards encountezed by the opposition.
The general concensus of opinion has it that Dolf,
along with D. Wohlgemuth, big 6 foot 2 inch re-
bounder and center for the Zips were literally
"jipped" out of all-star berths. Wonderful offensive
games and defenses were turned in by R. Johnson
6 foot 1 inch boy with the spring of a kangaroo, and
Ben Sharp, 6 foot 3 inch rangy, rough, bounding
guard, who, by the way was absent when the league
winning Lawyers defeated the Zips one point. Hal
Kennedy and C. Wilson were in there all the time
playing either at the guard or forward berths, and
turned in outstanding play all season. J. Miller and
T. White, late joiners of the squad were there when
needed, and showed very well for beginning cagers.
Postseasonally, the Soph Dents joined the Bethany
Church team entered in Class B, Inter-Citv Basket-
ball Tounament. The boys really went hot, and
gained the runner-up spot in the city. They, later
under the same sponsor, took runner-up in the St.
James Recreation tourney. The outstanding addition
to the Sophs by the Bethany group was L. Willis,
6 foot 6 inch dental student and smooth ball player,
and Frank Dolf from the Zips. The Zips had two
port season tilts with an organized group for the re-
maining dental students called "Miller's Maraudersf'
The boys who boasted former stars, both high school
and college, suffered defeat by scores of some 30-
point margins. The Millermen were: T. Burris,
D. Stone, "M.,' Miller, B. Duesing, C. Kouri, R. Paul,
T. Bennion, J. Noss, L. Willis.
In circumspect of the dentist, perhaps it may be
said, that the competitive spirit displayed by the en-
tire dental school and the show of fine sportsman-
ship in the game, whatever it might be, were an
omen that the dentist of the future will not be merely
a "belly to the chair" man, but rather a community
spirited fellow, who loves the game and clean com-

one of the greatest accomplishments our school is

and abundance of modern laboratories and equipment.

latest units for the clinic floorg the surgery depart-
ment, handled by Dr. Stu Kelly, is probably the best
equipped surgery department of any universityg Dr.
Huntington and Mrs. Roth have diligently built the
pharmacology lab into a haven of education for dental
medicine: and Dr. Calmes, Dr. Wliite, and Dr. 'Nago-
moto have developed a small orthodontic department
into a well equipped and modern graduate school.
lt is because of these men and these laboratories
that our school is proud-and we as students and
alumni are proud.
Witli such men as these to lead, and with such
facilities as our school has, we have no qualms about
the future and continued leadership of the School of
Dentistry of the University of Kansas City.

Physiological Chemigtry is that branch of chem-
istry which deals with the application of chemical
and physico-chemical principles and methods to the
study and interpretation of the processes which take
place in living organisms. The course of instruction
for dental students emphasizes particularly subject
matter relating to processes in the human body.
Modern physiology, pharmacology, nutrition, bac-
teriology and pathology are concerned largely with
chemical reactions in normal and pathological tis-
sues. The need of the modern dentist for a knowl-
edge of physiological chemistry is evident to anyone
who analyzes the services expected of him. His
work is concerned with the development of the
teeth and jawsg the etiology of disease, particularly
dental and other oral diseasesg the relation of oral to
systemic conditionsg and healing, all of which re-
quires knowledge of chemical reactions in the body.
The dentist has frequent occasion to consult with
physicians regarding cases. There is considerable op-
portunity to cooperate with medical practitioners in
From a logical point of view, it is essential that
the intellectual equipment of the dentist include a
knowledge of physiological chemistry.
Forrest W. Huntington, A.M., D.D.S
Professor of Dentistry fClJemistryj
DR. FRANCIS CALMES
DR. CHASTAIN PORTER
DR. FORREST W. HUNTINGTON
DR. LESLIE EISENBRANDT DR. WAYNE W. WHITE
Whenever dentists or dental students congregate who have at-
tended our School of Dentistry, you can be sure they will speak in
highest terms of these three teachers, Dr. Francis Calmes, topiright,
Dr. Chastain Porter, center right, and Dr. Forrest'W. Huntington,
in the lowerright photograph. It is doubtful if there were ever three
men who have done as much as these men have and yet asked for as
little credit as these do. Dr. Calmes, affectionately called "Silent
Calf' is one of the mainstays of the Orthodontic Department, and
along with Dr. George Nagamoto, are the full time instructors in
that department. Dr. Calmes holds a degree from the University of
Kansas City School of Dentistry and also from the University of
Southern California. Dr. Nagomoto was formerly on the staff of
the University of Southern California.
Dr. Chastain Porter is one of the leading prosthodontists in the
United States, and incidentally he has one of the nicest dental offices
in Kansas' City, located on the Plaza. Dr. Porter is frank, and is
always ready to assist in any worthwhile project.
Dr. Forrest W. Huntington, Professor of Dentistry QChemistryj,
was just recently promoted to a full professor, and the highpoints of
his life resemble very much a Horatio Alger success story. We could
write a lot about Dr. Huntington, and the way he has developed,
with the assistance of Genevieve D. Roth, one of the finest biochem-
istry laboratories in any dental school in the United States, but a lot
is contained in the words, "We are better students, and better men,
for having known Dr. Forrest W. Huntington."
In this column of Parting Shots, we would like to throw a few
bouquets to Dr. Wayne W. White, right, and Dr. Leslie E. Eisen-
brandt, left. These two men have not been given much credit in the
Bushwhacker for work they have done around the School of Dentistry,
and we would like to at least show them that we know they are
doing a good job. Dr. White is very active in the graduate Ortho-
dontic department, particularly in its organization. Dr. Eisenbrandt
is head of the Research department, and is also on the faculty of the
University of Kansas City. Dr. Eisenbrandt is a graduate of Rutgers,
and has done considerable work on saliva, and ,several of, his findings
have been published.

We have come to the final page of our book.
Time will mellow the memories and pages, but as
we glance through this volume many happy mo-
ments will be relived. We have attempted to put
out the finest yearbook ever published by Our
School, and in this attempt we had the full coop-
eration of the students, the faculty, the printers,
the engravers, and most of all we had the unfalter-
ing support of a person we all think the world of
-Dr. Roy James Rinehart, our Dean.
Censorship governed by common decency made
many photographs unsuitable for our Bushwhacker.
True it is a manls publication in a man's school, but
since our shotgun wedding to the Kangaroo, we have
to do as the other half desires. But as we glance in
retrospect, we have had a lot of fun putting this
book together. The work that was expended. in
editing this book will never be realized by most of
you, but it was a gigantic task and many nights the
lights in the Street Brothers apartment never dimmed
until the eloek struck two or three a. m.
Since this column is more or less a catch-all for
material that should be in the Bushwhacker but
which did not fit under any particular chapter,
there are several firms we would like to extend
thanks to for assistance. The Philadelphia Inquirer,
of course, for loaning us engravings, the total value
of which was three thousand dollars. Also to the
San Juan Capistrano, Calif., Coastline-Dispatch, and
the Los Angeles Evening Bee-News. These two
newspapers, leaders in their communities and in the
nation, loaned us photographs and engravings which
helped to make our yearbook a little better. Thanks
also to Merle Fletcher and Ralph Kolb of Burger-
Baird Engraving Company for advice and aid.
As seniors, we will never forget those wonderful
Wednesday afternoons when we were officially al-
lowed to be absent from school until time to meet
at Duke's for a few beers before going over to Gen-
eral Hospital for Dr. Upsher's lecture. It was at
Duke's that T. White would give us the latest in-
formation regarding things at the school. We didn't
put a lot of stock in his information until we saw
Dr. Calmes lighting Tommy's cigarette one day.
An organization that the profession can well be
proud of is the American Association of Dental Edi-
tors. It is this that keeps dental journalism on such
a high plane, and keeps your literature accurate and
of the best type. With the American Association of
Dental Editors looking after dental journalism, the
profession can be sure of what it reads in dental
journals. Dr. Otto Brandhorst of St. Louis is the
secretary of the group, and many men in our own
school are members of the AADE, including Dr.
Rinehart, Dr. Calmes, Dr. Jacobs, and Dr. Fred
Richmond. Several students are also members.
John B. Street, Jr., was the art editor for
this yearbook, and put in long hard hours get-
ting it all into shape. The swell job he did
is evidenced by the numerous pictures and the
splendid way in which they are arranged. John
is from Glendale, California, and is one of the
most conscientious members of the class.
Dr. Rinehart watches Dr. Lawrence caring
for one of the Lowry Clinic Patients. Dr.
Kenneth Lawrence holds a certificate in Pedo-
dontia from Forsyth fDental Infirmary, Bostonj.

faj to familiarize the student with the sources,
properties and preparation of drugs and their action
on vital tissues in so far as such an understanding
is required in the intelligent practice of modern
dentistry, Qbj to teach him certain important prin-
ciples involved in the application of these materials,
and QCD to lead him to a realization of the im-
portance of using drugs whose properties and actions
Pharmacology and Materia Medica have long been
taught in the dental schools as required subjects.
They were generally offered as lecture courses only.
For several years in an effort to offer the student
a more comprehensive approach to the subject, dem-
onstrations of the drug actions have been presented.
In 1944 a new and completely modern Pharma-
cology laboratory was provided in this school. Here
the student is taught to write prescriptions and to
fill types of prescriptions suitable to dental needs.
Animals are used to show the action of the drug
"in vivo," and when possible, as in the study of
anesthesia, a demonstration is given by a specialist,
using an actual case in the surgery.
A definite effort is made to include in this study
the drugs and preparations preferred in the school
clinic, so as to better prepare the student to deal
with his clinical cases. New drugs are introduced
in order that the student may be well informed and
be able to make use of advances in therapeutics.
Special reading assignments are made to assist the
student to read intelligently and evaluate the litera-
ture and discussions on remedies related to dental
The laboratory course affords the student oppor-
tunity to demonstrate for himself that drugs do
modify bodily functions in particular respects, and
may be utilized to assist restoration and maintenance
of normal functioning. The experience gained should
develop ability to critically judge the value of drugs.

The Student Council of the School of
Dentistry consists of three representatives
from each class. With the assistance of Dr.
Sawyer as counselor and advisor, this organ-
ization deals with the problems and activ-
ities which arose during the current year.
The fact that the problems of the dental
student are few, excluding the scholastic,
make the duties of the council relatively
simple. A point system to serve as a basis
for selecting members to Who's Who was
worked out by the council this year. Mem-
bership was formerly left to the discretion
of the members of the council with no con-
crete basis for selection.
Two members of the student council of
the School of Dentistry serve as representa-
tives on the Council of the University of
Kansas City. The interest of the dental
student in the University Council mani-
fested itself by the writing of a new Uni-
versity constitution. The work of the mem-
bers of the dental council with the mem-
bers of the University council has done
much to further relations between the
dental students and the students of other
schools of the University. In this respect
its work has been admirable.

The greatness of a fraternity lies in the achieve-
mcnts of hcr brothers. Thus it is with a great deal
of pride that Psi Omega men look upon the history
of their fraternity. During the past, in the present,
locally and n:t'onally, Psi Omega is, without doubt,
the outstanding dental professional fraternity. This
is not mere "rush" talk but rather a reality based
upon fact. Let us take a look at the recordsg therein
lies the ztory.
Psi Omega, founded in 1892 at the Baltimore
College of Dental Surgery, is the youngest, by a few
years, of all dental fraternities, yet it is the largest
with 36 active and 61 alumni chapters. Since 1920
thirteen piesidents of the American Dental Associa-
tion have been Psi Omegas. Every president for the
past five years successively, including president-elect,
have been Psi O's. In the present adminiitration.
it is interesting to note, not only the president but
also the vice-president and treasurer are b others in
Psi Omega. The highest ranking dental officer of
the U. S. Navy, the head of the Navy Dental Corps

Capably guided by Grand Master John Stone and
Scribe Hal Kibby, Delta Sigma Delta has moved
through her forty-ninth year in Kansas City-Western
Dental College and the University of Kansas City
School of Dentistry.
Fourteen of the forty active members are on the
roll of the Senior Class of 1947 and will soon pass
on to join the ranks of their profession. All of them,
by their interests, abilities and talents, have con-
tributed no small amount to the
passing history of the Class of '
1947. During the fall semester,
Jim Cole and John Stone ably
handled apointments in the de-
partment of Surgery. Cole also V ' F'
received a Crown and Bridge
appointment during the winter
semester, 1947, and Stone was
appointed to Lowry Clinic. G. D. Walters was an
appointee in Crown and Bridge and Pat Pruett
capably held a similar position in the department of
Prosthetics during the fall semester. Pruett's appoint-
ment was continued for both semesters of the Senior
year. Hal Kibby served in the Diagnosis depart-
ment for the fall semester. Hal also served as Vice-
President of our class during the Sophomore year.
Gordon' Bennett was elected President of the Class
of 1947 during the Junior year. From the beginning,
Bennett shouldered a great many of the responsi-
bilities of the class in regard to student representation
and student council. R. L. Stone and Bill Hulen
were Surgery appointees during the winter semester.
Hulen also served as Treasurer of the class during
the Junior year. D. E. Parry received a Prosthetics
appointment for the second semester of the Senior

Chi Chapter of Xi Psi Phi was installed at Western
Dental College, February 11, 1908. Supreme Presi-
dent H. B. Pinney was the installing officer. After
the merger of the two schools, it became Chi Chapter
of Kansas City Western Dental College.
Xi Psi Phi was organized for the purpose of pro-
viding a better, more substantial foundation upon
which to build a successful professional life: of de-
veloping an appreciation of the qualities of friendship
and hospitality: to honor these principles: knowledge,
morality, friendship and of stimulating a desire to
include these qualities in the character of its members.
During the past year, Xi Psi Phi has held clinics of
various specialized dental fields, presented by local,
as well as out-of-town, speakers. .
Rushing was very enthusiastic this season, and as
a result, both the pledge classes and the parties were
better than ever. And as usual, socially and pro-
fessionally, the name of Xi Psi Phi heads the list, and
the good old spirit of fraternalism prevails where
two or more ZIPS meet. ' f'

Every Wednesday afternoon the Seniors journey to the General
Hospital to attend a lecture on clinical medicine by Dr. Upsher
and Dr. Bell. But before the lecture, a must was to have a few
"Cokes" at Duke's Tavern, and that is where we find the boys
in these pictures-pictorial evidence that dental students are a
sociable bunch, and can hold their own with any group.
Tommy White, Burris, Walters, Watlien, J. B. Street, Helgerson,
Chancey, XVilson-all are informally posed in these shots taken
by Pructt and Streck. It was at these social get-togethers that
affairs of the school in general were talked over, and these meet-
ings could almost be called a classroom gathering. As a matter
of fact, there are those who think credit should be given for a
course like this.
As for Dr. Upsher, there isn't :i student in the whole university
who doesn't think he is top man when it comes to picking good
