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, 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.

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!
