Not every chilcl reaches that state of mental de- velopment when it can appreciate the care-free time when it was sheltered by clear mother's love, anal not every aclult can justly appreciate that eventful time when he was getting his education, VVe begin to see the charm of the happy school tlays only when we come face to face with the soher reality of life, livery student pictures his future as very promis- ing. Armecl with all the knowledge he neetls, he sees himself well untler all kinrls of trials. But much, however. clepencls upon circumstances. liven a hirtl hitles its heazl uncler its wing when the weather is too rough, :mtl mayhe with a sigh it re- calls that happy time when it was safe unrler the wings of its tentler mother. And our young cloctors often come face to face with harfl. eomplieatecl problems and then they turn their thoughts to the happy past when the Pro- fessors woultl help them over rough places, Some instructors will offentl their stutlents hy the somewhat coarse tone in which thev talk to them. Not so with the K. C, D. C. Faculty. lienevolence, as l remember, reignerl supreme there. The sturlents worketl at clinics, not heeause of cliscipline, hut hecause they loverl and respectecl their clemonstrators as well as other instructors, The following will throw some light on the attitutle of the Professors towartl the students: ' 1,1 the year 101141 the writer asketl the Dean to he aclmittetl to K.

Olaf Nf'1f'ff'1'EfK"'e"' worth treated me very kindly, according to the sacred teaching, "Love the foreigner." At the end of the semester I had to pass a practical examination given by the Missouri State Board. Dr. Hollingsworth came to me and expressed his pleasure, and Dr. Allen as a good father was interested to see how I was getting along in my work with a gold filling, and joyfully exclaimed: "It's all right, Doctor!" Both Dr. Allenfand Dr, Hollingsworth aroused in me much courage, and I, following their teachings, successfully passed my examination. In spite of my having obtained "license" for practicing in the State of Missouri, I would not leave the congenial college people, and I enrolled as a student. Under the inHuence of K. C. D. C., I seemed to have regained my youth. I would readily have partaken of dancing with the young comrades, but my gray hair kept me back. I have the most pleasant recollection of all the Faculty, and thus I received my diploma in the year of 1911. Because of certain circumstances I had to leave Kansas City and thus part with the kind and intellectual people of K. C. D. C., and move to Chicago, where they required the Black system of cavity preparation. My school again came to my aid and the demonstrators reviewed and familarized me with this system. I successfully passed my examination in Chicago also. And thus I am far away from dear old K. C. D. C., but am near to it in spirit and think of it often. Thanks to the occasion of the Third Annual of K. C. D. C., I take the pleasure of congratulating and expressing my most sincere wishes to all Professors for a long and happy life. My regards to the Alumni brothers and student-body of K. C. D. C.

I The mills of the Gods grind us allg grind us Ene if we are of the right stuff, but if not they grind us to perdition. The mill is all one. It is we that are the varient. The "Annual" comes timely now as the season of rest approaches and we are free to follow the Primrose Path or bear bravely onward in Humanity's Armies. Now indeed is the time to take stock of what we have accumulated during the past yearg to arrange, assimilate and make it a part of ourselves never to idly drift until perforce we are compelled to resume our annual studies. Is it a diploma you are after? Of what use then? A diploma is only an evidence of probation-a legalized permission to try your strength in the great world where you will rise or fall on your own inherent worth. Dentistry should not be viewed as an end in itself, but rather as a means to an endg a vehicle well suited to bear us along the great Highway where each exploits as best he can the science of Life and the art of Living. As childish joys fall away, we ever End newer and keener ones awaiting us further on, even as the crude and awkard efforts of our first attempts at dentistry give place to the sure touch and skilled decisions of later years. To the man who really wishes to arrive, to get somewhere, Dentistry, it seems to me, offers exceptional opportunities. No bit of knowledge will even be found useless, but sometimes will fit into a difficult situation and save the day, All of our faculties find in Dentistry their fullest expressiong eye, hand and heart form an inseparable trinity, to see, to know, and to be able to do, make sympathy something more than maudlin sentiment. A study of form and color alone make possible artistic work. The beautiful is ever useful. It is to the mind what hands and feet are to the body. The truly able dentist symbolizes within himself all that there is of science and of art, and just in proportion as any knowledge is neglected will the work of that dentist show defects that he knows not of. The acquirement of knowledge is the only path that can lead man to the heights where all Nature is spread out before him-where she makes obeisance and places her secrets in his keeping. Power comes and all its attending joys, the power to serve. Seek it now, grasp it wherever found, that future lives may not find you born helpless and dependent, but a power among your fellowmen- a power for goodg a teacher and a help to the ignorant and the weak: a joy to yourselfg a saviour to the race.

Then rises the voice-that matchless gift of God sent down for the hetterment of an nndeserring race-and with the strain, the sweeter because familiar and anticipated, the invisible presence steals upon me noiseless and in- sistent, following the singer note by note and momentarily glorifying the same- ncss of tonight with all the sweetness of a well-remembered yesterday."

To he a good student is worth while: To he a successful graduate is better: To he a wise practitioner is an achievement: To he ethical with it all is a triumph. I know of no calling which offers more in the way of usefulness than Den- tistry. and I know of no period in the world's history when Dentistry was so useful as it is today. The student of the present merely has to reach out his hand and take the fruits of all the preceding years of effort on the part of men who have gone lfe fore, and it is salutary for the young man or woman to rememlier this and to profit by it. No graduate is entitled to respect who will not exert himself to the utmost to advance the profession beyond the place where he finds it. He owes this to the memory of the men who are gone, and to the welfare of those who are to follow. 1 O-,il Effect of the War on Enrollment li. tl. l,.X N li. The war and four-year course has shown to a remarkable degree the decrease in the matriculation of dental as well as other professional students. lthile the new act of Congress relating to the United States llental Corps will permit the present students to finish their dental course, the young men antici- pating a degree in Dentistry have no other recourse than accepting their fate under the draft act by serving their country in the titanie struggle "For the Free- dom of the World and Democracy." The elevation of the standard in raising the course from three to four years. added to the difficulties occasioned hy the war, has also caused a considerable cur tailment of matrieulations. so that the dental colleges are now operating with partially filled classes and face a greater shortage of students for the coniiog terms. Statistics show that during the past normal times the dental colleges were not graduating a sufficient numher of men to meet the needs the country demands. For the good of the public welfare and the dental profession the outgoing grad- uates should recommend a dental course to their acquaintances not yet of draft age, of proper disposition and character, who hare the educational qualifications and tiuancial resources to permit them to enter college. XX? can at least do this much for our .-Xlma Mater in these times of stress.

There is now and always will he room for efficient, well qualilied men lll every calling: the mediocre and incompetent soon rind their level and fall by the way. Remember this. no field is over-worked or over-crowded for the original. ambitious man who is capable of thinking and acting for himself and is not afraid of hard work, The one who is making the outcry that he has no chance. no ops' portunity, is he who lacks decision, will-power and pushg he don't and won't take hold when opportunity offers. Such men will succeed nowhere: all professions are tilled. :ill avenues are closed to men of this type. So we greet and welcome the new recruit tot the right kindj to a fertile Field where the "harvest is plenty" :md the actual lahorers are few-a soil pregnant with the possibilities of fame ant: fortune. if he is zt resourceful, devoted and untiring worker, It is too often the ease that one seems to think. after he has graduated. no further study :md investigation is necessary, apparently overlooking the fact that the underlying principle to success is close application and a continuous devotion to the little details in his chosen calling. It is too often the case that we overlook the fact that "most anybody can per- form service fairly well: many may do so very well. zt fmt' .rztfiwlzlbv well, hut the man who not only does his work exceptionally well hut adds to it a touch of personality, through great zeal, patience. persistence. making it peculiar, unique, tlistinct and unforgetahle, adding that last indelinahle touch, proves the man of genius."

Patriotism is the fundamental virtue upon which all governments are found- ed. Without patriotism no government could exist, from tribe or clan to empire or republic. Men must be ready to give their lives and substance to the preserva- tion and continuance of that order under which they live, so long as it is pro- gressive, benign and lovable. Wlieii it ceases to be any of these it becomes hate- ful and men rebel. When it continues to be of fair promise and progressive: when it develops human liberty Cnot licensej, and is attacked, men, citizens, must defend it. The very idea of individual liberty and right to progress is now in great danger-the direst danger we have known since recorded time. The liberty-loving people of the world are aroused by a fear of great calamity. The very foundation of human progress is shaken. It is the time for true patriotism. The latent patriotism of the Nation is aroused, and the dental profession has nobly responded to its country's call. Thousands of our professional brothers have joined the army's ranks and more are ready as soon as needed. The dental colleges have enlisted hundreds of their under-classnien in the reserve. The Kansas City Dental College has furnished its full quota. Many of its alumni and students are in honorable and patriotic service, and we are proud to state more than one hundred twenty-two bear the rank of First Lieutenant in the Regular Army and Dental Reserve. One hundred twenty-two out of an alumnus of nine hundred and eighty-five! Over twelve per cent officers in the Army. This is a fine record and we doubt if it can be surpassed by any dental educational school of America. Many have enlisted in the Army as privates in preference to waiting for commissions, as they were anxious to do their Mbit." How is that for a record?

MUSIIER, ll.D.S. In the light ot' present revelations regarding oral focal infections, the prac- tice of dentistry is changing, and will lean more toward the prevention of mouth and teeth lesions, and irregularities, rather than to the reparation of same. This will require the teaching and thorough implantation in the minds of our patients the necessity of constant observation and care on their part, and instead of waiting until the destruction of tissue has taken place they must have frequent consultations with a dentist to the end that devitalized teeth and diseased gums will be the exception rather than the rule. This leads to the further thought that the place to begin with the teaching is in the Primary schools so children will have it inculcated in them: then they will realize the trouble and harm decayed teeth and unclean mouths will produce. lmgt- gn K c D C The Molar f ox owfm L W l 1, wx , fl ' X K x C 5 V' 5:?' q.s 1 ca-1 P 'U W Y I !

Out you are gone and into the most stu- pendous times in all history. Nations are in the crncible and humanity's future will be the resulting. Facing as you do the severest decisions, make the greater good your own. and, such of you as can, enlist to serve your country in this great crisis. The field you have to work in is practically unlimited. 'l'oday's knowl- edge of the needs and possibilities your trained skill affords for the restoration of facial deformities makes of your chosen profession a grand ideal, well worthy your whole life endeavor. Some of you there are who will make the Grand Sac- rifice, and the coming generations of your profession shall look up to you as stars in the darkness of times that were. Klany of the seemingly hopeless among the case presentations in the base hospitals will have new hopes and new lives due to the skill and resources of the dental surgeons in their operation for facial restorations. Pain relief through anesthetics devised, perfected and admin- istered by dentists will be most potent factors in the minds of those who benefit by their use to call attention to the good in your profession and ability. lt there- fore is up to you to so equip and train yourselves that mankind shall have just cause to be grateful, and we who have tried to teach you shall see that some of the effort was seed sown on good ground. So, then, forward all. and may the final call find none of ns slackers. Klay future efforts of yours resound so bril- liantly that your class will he named as one which made the race and Finished strong and honorably. lhgr .71 Knnsas Cily omni College 8 OIG 1' Nf"ff""'5f4"'f"" Education C. C. ALLEN. Education to be of any real value to a man must be more than the collection of a lot of facts. It must mean such an intellectual training that the best possible corordination and use of the facts collected may be made. A man who is simply a walking encyclopedia is seldom of much practical use to himself or his com- munity. Better by far have a common-sense understanding of a few things than have the mind cluttered up with a large assortment of half-acquired knowledge. Edu- caition should not be separated from character building and development. A fine, strong character only is a good setting for knowledge, and without it all is vain and useless. A man should learn all he can that bears upon or in the direction of a def- inite end. If he does this he will finally get to be a well-educated man and his education will become a continuous process and independent of all schools. He will learn so long as he lives and Find pleasure and satisfaction in his progress. 1-1-Ol.. Wliat is regarded as learning, erudition. or wisdom, is a treasure which others have won and possessed before us. It is the promise of intelligence, to investigate causes and origin, to become free from the narrow limits between the cradle and the grave. VVe become broader, wiser, purer and better for having learned of what has been. It strengthens our faith and ambition in regard to the future: we become liberalized, refined and ennobled. By such eating of the tree of knowledge, the eyes become open, and the man is as a god. He makes the divinest conquest of the human intellect.-M. N.

"Man is his own Stllr. and the soul that can Render an honest and perfect man Commands all light, all iniiuenee, all fate." Today young men in order to make the most of their ability and become successful must not stop at a high school education, but must in some way attain a college career. Circumstances often force the candidate to assist himself in a measure in the matter of liquidating the necessary expense incurred in acquiring advanced learning. Such an undertaking requires a strong will-power, self-sacri- tice and perseverance. He must deny himself pleasures and is compelled to rely upon his own re- sources to make himself capable of fighting life's battles in the coming years to make himself strong and self-mastered. This experience is of much value in the college course. ' Some students entering lack worldly experience, or have not enjoyed the responsibility of being thrown upon their own resources in early life, or lacked home teaching along this line, which deprived them of the self-reliance which leads to success. Inspiration must be grasped and absorbed in the primary or secondary years, and the spark of ambition must be kindled previous to enteringg even when the ambition exists, and the candidate begins his struggle, his environment must be of an encouraging nature. His associates must be in sympathy with, and those who can best appreciate, his efforts, ln working for others he learns discipline, mingles with various types of people-some, perhaps, of gloomy, taciturn dispositions, which demands patience and self-control. Hy noting the weakness of others he improves his character. His position thrusts upon him the necessity and knowledge of economy as he plans to place his earnings where he will gain the most benefit. The candidate learns to think, and. in time. is master of his own mind. He learns to face crit- icism without being discouraged. and does not sacrifice his ideals to popular clamor when he is confident he is in the right. This education is valuable to the professional man inasmuch as he must also learn to successfully deal with the public. After the completion of the course, by faithful study and honest labor. he enters upon a new tit-ld to win. llc realizes the necessity and dignity of labor and leads men by showing them facts, The strongest characters known have experi- enced the tire of struggle, toil and disappointment.

He thought the matter over se1'iously and often visited the dentist in his home town. He disclosed his ambition to his parents occasionally, and, as the summer wore on, the subject became a three-cornered affair at the family table. Finally father hgured out where he could collect enough cash to start the am- bitious youth on his way to the city and flame lwe mean fennel. Mothers face brightened, and after looking at her son she went into the kitchen and dried her tears on her checkered apron. The successive three years rolled by, and by hard work and much study, as we ourselves appreciate, the young man graduated. He had learned many things during his sojourn in the city. The matter of dress was one of them, and it irked him sorely to think of going to a small town where so little was known about the ways of the city. One day he stood at the window of his office and watched a sturdy young man, whose dress plainly testified that his occupation was of an agricultural nature. Our hero watched him and decided that although he would be glad to do some dental work for the farmer, they could never meet on closer ground. By and by the young farmer's regulations of habit brought him to thoughts of the care of his dental outfit. He inquired at the bank about the new dentist, but as our hero had been thinking more of his personal superiority the bank officials could not vouch for his reliability. So accordingly the young farmer de- cided to go the following Saturday to the county seat, for he had a threefold reason for doing so. First, he had a friend there who was the daughter of the biggest banker in the county: second, the select several were giving a dance that night: thirdly, of course. were the teeth Our hero never knew these events. and although it was no secret it never occurred to his inclosed brain that substantiality was the stand by which the social pleasures of Greenville were extended. VVhen, after a number of times, he was invited to go to the meetings of the business men, the young dentist began to realize that he might feel more com- fortable if he had more feeling of substantiality and less of self-esteem. ln the course of events he received an invitation to participate in a wedding at the county seat, and was greatly hono1'ed to learn that he was to accompany a certain girl of his dreams. So on the trip homeward in the car of one of his friends he wondered if the estimation of his reliability was sufficient to warrant him to broach a very se1'ious matter to the young lady, Moral: Clothes don't make the man: neither do city ways.

C. D. C. PETER A. BROWN, MREILU The first day the Freshmen assembled I guess we were sure the laughing stock of the school. We were very green youngsters fresh from the woods and burgs. Nat- urally we were not educated up to the city life, and being our First time in, we were at a loss as to where to go or how to amuse ourselves: so all that remained for us to do was to loiter around the College Building trying to find something of interest, someone to talk to, in fact, anything to kill time. XVe felt we must keep out of the way of our superiors, especially those Seniors whom we always feel to be much greater than ourselves, because we did not have the forethought to realize they themselves were at one time merely Freshmen. Oh! that first day-can I ever forget? It was the longest day I ever lived, But the next day the Old Faithful of the K. C. D. C. CMiss Ruthj found time to make us acquainted with some jolly good fellows who were upper classmen, and that awful bird, gloom, found himself handicapped, so tlew to other quar- ters, seeking new victims. The ice was broken and soon melted, when the dark clouds rolled on, giving the right of way to Old Sol, who cast his pleasant rays of sunshine in every di- rection. VVe found the upper classmen were not so far above us after all-at least not in a sociable way-for they proved to be a friendly bunch of young men. It did not take them long to learn the Freshies, and soon we were branded "Red," though some of us at first felt "Blue" would have been more appropriate. How- ever, this name even sounded good to our ears, and every time we heard it it gave us a pleasant thrill to think we had not been forgotten. The nickname still clings to us as we continue the well-trodden path strewn with roses. Page 75 t. Kansas Ciry Dcnlul College The Olaf Nineteen-Eighteen Conscientious Work GEURGIZ LENVIS, SR. To us who are just completing our college education, this should be our first thought. lt is imperative wc be conscientious workmen in the held of Den- tistry, which means our futttre livelihood. In thinking of conscientious work it is a feeling to do or be that which is recognized as good: an inward conviction or acknowledgment, especially in re- lation to one's own thoughts and actions. Conscientious implies scrupulous, al- ways painstaking, observance of duty. It means we must serve our clientele to the best of our ability under the existing circumstances. XYe nmst observe all minor details which will improve the case. The best of materials and modern methods are required to give our patients the service we would desire. :Xt this time when our country is at war there is a decided attempt to slight our work, which we must overcome for the sake of the patient and the reputation of the operator. The showing we make in the beginning will determine our future standards. livery precaution should be taken to meet the requirement of "well done." for as we sow, so shall we reap. XYe cannot be too cautious in serving our patients, as a mistake or oversight on our part may endanger their health. Always put forth your most sincere ef- forts. as the best leads to the road of success. It is a difficult proposition for young men just entering the profession to assume the responsibility of his mistakes, especially those which are difficult to rectify, so gain all knowledge possible while under the jurisdiction of the college. Study constantly, looking forward to advancement and better results. VVe will then be better prepared to serve our clientele. Dentistry is our chosen profession, so let us prove ourselves worthy of recognition. . O,aT Courtesy to the Patient C. R. XVILI.I.XMS, JR. My idea of courtesy to the patient is, when given a patient by the instructors, tirst ask him to remove his wraps, seat him and adjust the chair until the patient is comfortable. This gives a pleasant first impression. Remember, first impres- sions are usually lasting. Excuse yourself when you go for your instruments or are called to the 'phone XVhen you go for your instruments do not stop to chat with classmates, but always step around quickly and with a business-like man- ner. Again excuse yourself to wash your hands, remarking you will soon be ready. Now adjust the towel over the patient with the greatest of care. In fact, let everv movement during the operation display diplomacy and emphasize sani- tation. "l'ake upon yourself the blame with apologies for the many little accidents that mav occur during the operation that are usually the result of the patient's own actions in moving about or closing the mouth at an inopportune time, etc. After completion of operation, tell the patient how you appreciated his pa- tience, etc., then assist him with his wraps and accompany him to the door with some pleasant expression on your lips, which will send him away good natured. lf you can wade through this procedure without a hitch you can say well done, and now for the next one. raw vs Kansas City Denial College The Ola f Nineteen-Eighteen left this hole until the last. The soldering of the rest of the plate was continued with less trouble from then on. The next problem to solve was the repair of the hole. I had been told solder would not How into a hole, but l applied so much on and around the hole it had to go somewhere. so l persuaded a sufficient amount to flow into the hole. The soldering now being completed, I borrowed an engine, and proceeded to grind out most of the solder I had wasted. Having completed it after much tiresome work, it was my advice to others not to use any more solder than abso- lutely necessary. The plate was then polished, put on cast and handed in for in- spection. with the hope that no more soldering would have to be done in the near future. l 0...--... My Sentiments lfklill .X.

IS. TURK, JK. ln this sad world, with griefs begirt, the more we howl the more we're hurt. Xlisfortune seems to keep the trail of those who raise the loudest wall. Progress- ive dentists in pomp array, who have a large practice in every way, and have the minions hy the score. don't very often raise a roar. If things go wrong they do not sigh, or show the world a straining eye. Xyhile the eareless dentist over yonder store, who has been there thirty years or more. and has a dribbling of trade from those who'll stand for goods decayed, is always at the wailing place, has always tears upon his face. 'lihe man who aims to get ahead, and not be ntnnbered with the dead, must sound the ltrave and joyful note. and keep a firm grip upon the goat. Page 77 Kansas City Dental College Ola f Nill2i0Ul'EfZ'lf22'l judgment in the selection of his office and home surroundings. And head-work counts all the way through. VVhen the war is over, Dentistry is going to he better than ever before, and the dentist will have to step lively to keep up with the parade. All of the men who will come back into civil life from the :Xriny will probably have experienced the sensation of having, for at least once in their lives. their teeth in sound con- dition, as the tiovernment is seeing that they are properly taken care of by the thousands of dental surgeons in the service. .Xnd having learned the need of sound teeth, these men will visit the dentists a great deal oftener when they come back than they did before they went in. And they will want the best kind of den- tistry that is to be found. and the man who can deliver the goods will be the one to get the business., The men who have gone into the Dental Reserve Corps will have wonderful opportunities for rendering service to their country, their fellows and them- selves. Everybody realizes that a soldier can no more be 100 per cent fit with poor teeth than he could with a wooden leg, and the experience gained in the Army will be of inestimable value to the dentist when he returns to civilian prac- tice. All our energies must be hent to walloping autocracy, and the dentist who cannot do his part with the soldiers can help by getting the prospective Eghting men in Al condition. xM vhlwyx W WSH f-KS Page 79 Kansas City nent.: College Th e ola r .vineffenvffznim Experience the Best Teacher XV. lf. NIEXYTUN, JR. I have fotind since entering Dental College the same old rule applies here as elsewhereg experience the best and real teacher. Une may read all the theories in the libraryg he may hear all lectures of the various instructors. but unless one employs himself diligently in both laboratory and infirmary in trying out all theories and instructions outlined in the lecture room, he will never make an "honest to goodness" dentist. Things learned by experience are those that re- main with you the longest. Sometimes these are the most important things for one to come to a knowledge of in the Dental p1'ofession. Many great discoveries have been made by experiments, which come under practically the same meaning. VVe see the field is far from being closed to us as maturing dentists, and we may greatly benetit and improve the Dental profession through these channels. I call to mind a little experience of a classmate who said he had Finished a little piece of dental work, which he admitted was good, and did' not hesitate to proclaim his feelings to all within hearing, and politely dismissed his patient with "I hope to see you again." Immediately upon departure of patient he missed his towel and holder. XYithout a word, he chased down the stairs onto the street and soon overtook the patient and embarrassingly recovered the towel from about the retreating patient's neck. I believe you will agree with me this time that old teacher experience intruding will prevent the loss of another towel in such a manner. I was devitalizing a tooth for a young lady in whose presence I was trying to act the important part of a D.D.S., and I was getting away with it pretty well until my Hrst devitalizing treatment had been administered and the young lady returned for the second sitting. The cavity had been prepared, pulp chamber reached, and the canals well opened up and all was progressing lovely, and the young lady even said I had not hurt her. XYhen I asked the demonstrator if I was not ready for my filling he informed me I had not followed the canals far enough and the pulp was not entirely out. Instead of taking a smooth broach and trying out the canals I nervously chose a barbed broach and started in search of the remaining nerve. All went well for a time, but when I neared the apical end of the root and gave the broach a turn two or three times the young lady began to tlinch and the feeling of the broach told me I had hold of something. I had a desire to loose my hold on it, but could not. By this time the patient was so restless I did not deem it safe to leave the broach in the tooth any longer for fear, in the excitement, it would be broken off. Nothing remained for nie to do but remove the nerve, so out it came, but very much aliveg and, U boy! the young lady came out of the chair with it. The rubber dam was displaced and the cavity soon filled with saliva, and it was a difficult task to console and persuade Page 80 Kansas City Dental Cnllcgr The Olaf Nineteen-Eizhfeen the patient to permit me to continue with the operation. Much did I learn from this experience, and it will be a long time before I again probe for a live nerve with a barber broach. ,ll -O , Habit R. E. FREIDINGER, JR. Habit is one of the great controlling inliuenees of our lives, For that reason we should be careful the kind of habits we form, If we form the habit of slight- ing our work while in college we will continue in this manner when we enter our own oflice. though we may pledge ourselves, with the best of intentions, to im- prove when we are thrown upon our own responsibility. The practitioner's work- manship is classed A, B, C, the same as anything else, so we had better get the habit of doing class A work in our infant practice, for they say it is difficult to make a change when we enter our own office and break away from the habits of our three years of schooling. Another habit which should receive some consideration is the habit of living clean lives while in college. Get the habit of attending church on Sundays in- stead of the movies or other places less elevating: and if you get tlfe habit of mingling with this class of people your practice will be formed of such char- acters. NYc cannot do the best work if we are not conscientious, and we cannot be conscientious if we are not morally clean. Last, but not least, we should be Christians, and then it will be an easy matter to form good habits. i ll rage RI Kansas City umm College The O10 7' Nf"ffPf"1-5ffI"'ff" Oral Hygiene vs. Drastic Prophylaxis RAY ORVILLE LANE, SR. Dentistry, as taught and understood by the laity, has for its chief object the restoration of lost tooth-structure, it being created to meet a great necessity of the healing art, or of a science of therapeutics. In the past, the dentist's whole work and his only aim has been to fill teeth or replace them with an artificial substitute. Today the profession has awakened to the need of preventive dentistry, or oral hygiene, and rapid strides are now being made in educating the general public by the establishment of free dental clinics in our public schools with courses in oral prophylaxis. Research work has proven that many diseases of the oral cavity can be prevented by the simple method of a close adherence to oral hygiene. At present it is an exception, instead of a rule, to find healthy gums, well developed teeth and arches in the mouths of adults. The reasons are: There is little conviction in the minds and hearts of many dental practitioners that oral prophylaxis is really a possibility, believing that the abnormal conditions found in the dental organs are of obscure origin and that nothing can be done, or any treatment towards removing the cause requires too much time, extraordinary skill and detailed attention, so it is impossible to secure successful results from their efforts. Oral prophylaxis may he defined as the science and art which aims at the prevention of disease with the dental organs. just as long as dentists are willing to follow reactionary leaders and their opinions and text-books, so long will they be advocates of drastic prophylaxis, and it will be practically impossible to make much progress from the belief that there is anything better in dentistry outside of restoring badly broken-down teeth. The treating of symptoms without any serious attempt to ascertain and re- move the causes which produce these symptoms results in the present-time dental diseases increasing faster than they are being checked. An educational and preventive clinic in public schools offers a most satis- factory solution to the correction of dental deformities, for under this plan every child undergoes an examination of his mouth and receives prophylactic treatment of his teeth, also they are educated by drills in the proper method of brushing their teeth. Once acquiring this habit at this early period, it is safe to say it will follow them through life. Moving pictures are used in the aid of illustrating the Page 82 Kansas City Dental College The OIGI' Nineteen-Eighteen use of instrumentation and technic employed, which are very helpful, and a more general practice of this method could be extended to educate the masses to a high point of efficiency in oral prophylaxis. The action taken by the different allied governments at the present time in supplying their armies with tooth-brushes as a regular part of their equipment shows to a point that their best tighting ability can only be maintained by a strict adherence to modern health rules. The United States Army has established dental clinics in all cantonments, and is requiring its men to report for all dental deformities, and it is safe to predict that many men who have not heretofore been acquainted with the tooth-brush will now become a strong advocate of its use. The idea held by some that teeth were given by inscrutable Providence to torment people belongs in the discarded theories, and drastic prophylaxis for comfortable fitting dentures could have been prevented in a majority of cases by a close application to the simple methods of oral hygiene. Page R3 Kansas City DznlnlCo11rgz The 0107 Ninflwl-Eizhlwl Focal Infections and Their Relation to the Dentist T. C. ELLIOTT, SR. In entering dental college, we, as a body of young men, did so with the in- tention of receiving a proper nucleus from which to build for ourselves a knowl- edge of the practice of Dentistry. NVe have dwelt carefully along the line of mechanics, but as a body have we applied our every effort to the alleviation of pain and eradication of focal infection? If not, it is not because we have not received the proper instructions, for we have. And now, for the interest of the dental profession as a whole, we must carefully dwell along the pathological and therapeutical side as well as the mechanical. It has been demonstrated that many of our prevalent bodily ailments are being caused from some foci of infection, whether it be from the teeth, tonsil or appendix: it has also been demonstrated that many of the chronic focal infections of the tonsils and appendix are directly concerned with some foci of infection connected with the teeth: therefore it seems that from the works of our emi- nent researchists it has been proven that the teeth are in the balance: therefore it behooves every dental student and practicing dentist to carefully follow all cases, not simply to remove conditions present, but do all that he can possibly do to pre- vent them, and, of course, this will embrace every mechanical appliance he may use to replace lost tooth structure: and, to become deeply interested in what may be done, by carefully and painstakingly treating foci of infections, is to see some of the results obtained in these cases. The following history is an interesting case which was followed and treated by the writer in the college inlirmary: Patient, female, age 37, presented with left superior lateral badly broken down, but vital. Physical condition-neuresthenic diathesis, pulse rapid, and very marked ocular disturbance. It was decided, in order to make restoration, pulp must be destroyed-which, by the way, we must consider very carefully. Pressure anesthesia is not indicated in this class of patients, therefore devitaliz- ing fiber was sealed in. Patient returned in four days, pulp partially removed, owing to the fact that the patient would not stand for any pain. Phenol treat- ment sealed ing on return of patient remainder of pulp removed, thence sealing in formocresol treatment. To sterilize exposed structure of the root-canal ce- ment was used for stopping. Patient did not return on appointed time, but returned three weeks later: cement gone and canal exposed, which in the mean- time had instituted a chronic infection. Exploration revealed apical infection. proven by roentgenogram. Formocresol was again sealed in. On return. phenolsulphonic treatment was instituted as a bone stimulant and tissue irritant: Page 8.3 Kansas City Dental College The OIU7' Ninrlefn-Eizhfml canal cleaned and Hlled. Rocntgenogram proved satisfactory results and per- manent restoration was made by a synthetic facing inlay. Owing to the fact that the ocular disturbance was present at the time, just a small foci of infection was all that was necessary, owing to the lowered local vitality, to produce serious results. which disappeared with treatment of the tooth. In closing, it must be borne in mind that we as a profession are in the bal- ance, and in order to receive the allied association of the medical diagnostician, we must hold strict account of our work, whether it be simple mechanical restora- tion or treatment. 101i, Opportunity of Today R. M. SEIBEL, D.D.S. To the student of Dentistry of today is given the greatest opportunity ever afforded any practitioner of the art. VVith the advanced thoughts and wonderful progress made in the last few years, every student of the Kansas City Dental Col- lege has the chance of a lifetime to so equip himself that he may be in a class at the very pinnacle of his chosen profession. But it means close application and a sincere desire on his part to make the most of all opportunities to improve himself, and thus spell SUCCESS. Pagr 85 Kansas my Dental College The Qla r Nfnffmi-Efghfm The Dentist: His Place In Life J. D. CROWDER. There was a divinity within man that the luxuries of Eden could never de- velop. There was an inestimable blessing in that curse which drove him from the garden and compelled him forever to earn his bread by the sweat of his brow. It was not without significance that the Creator concealed our happiness and greater good beneath the sternest difficulties and made their attainment condi- tional on the struggle for existence. We have been born to associate with our fellow men and to join in com- munity with the human race. The world's work is growing daily in character, value and intensity, and is demanding for its performance not only labor, but genius of the highest order and thoroughly trained. Ours is an age of action and performance. We are reminded of the fact that in this age of struggle, where the buzz and the hum of the fly-wheels of progress are heard in the remotest quarters of the globe, and the vessels of research are plowing furrows in the intraversed ocean of exploration and invention, it is the mind of an ever-wakeful eye, the man or Woman with a fixed purpose, that gets on in the world. The day and the hour will soon be at hand when the prepared man will pros- per and the unprepared man will perish on his way to success. It was preparation that enabled Daniel VVebster to answer Senator Hayne. of South Carolina, on that momentous occasion. In this age of great competi- tion-an age of steam and electricity-it is required that if we would succeed we must prepare ourselves. Therefore, the prudent man, adjusting himself to the existing circumstances, in order not to be defeated in the struggle, and at the same time to gain a livelihood, has prepared himself to supply, or partly supply, either the needs or the comfort of the people. We may therefore view the men in their respective vocations: the farmer tilling the soil: wool-growers devoting their time to the preparation of materials for clothing, mechanics managing the world's machinery, builders erecting our homes, teachers inculcating into the youth those principles which go to develop the mind, build the character, thereby forming symmetrical men and women: lawyers pleading for their clients: ministers preaching the love of a crucified Savior and winning the world for Christ. Among these men can we find a place for the dentist? In this chain of vocations can we find a location for Dentistry? In this man's struggle where place Dentistry? "Not since the footfall of man, or since the morning stars sang together, or the sons of God shouted for joy, has there been a greater or more growing demand and need among all civilized people of the earth for den- tistry or the dentist." - Page R6 -rr-x Kansas City Dental College Olaf Nineteen-Eighteen A Common Inheritance JAMEs FREER, JR. Whether the origin of man as recorded in the book of Genesis or the Darwin theory be true, mankind has many traits in common. His color may vary from the albino to the negro, his intellect, from that of an Aristotle to that of the Hot- tentot. No matter how much he has varied in culture or civilization, there has always existed a common unrest, an unsatisfied state productive of both the beneficial and the detrimental. This has made itself manifest in various forms. It has made or marred nations and individuals alike. This dissatisfied state, to be productive of good, must be controlled by the individual. Whoever coined the adage, HA rolling stone gathers no moss," recognized this spirit of unrest. Many have interpreted this clause to read, f'Never roll, as a rolling stone gathers no moss." The crime consists not in the rolling, but in the failure to stop. Knowing when to stop marks the line between those who succeed and those who fail. Like some stones, we may be lying in a place where moss could never grow. It has turned out to be a blessing in disguise when a passing traveler has disturbed the equilibrium of such a one so that he rolled to a more fertile spot. Now that we have started or been started by the passing traveler on our way to master the intricacies of the best profession of all, 1et's master the spirit of un- rest. Let's be satisfied. Let's stop rolling, perfect the road, and gather moss. i-l0.. . Advice and Consolation 1. M. TOHNSON, ju. Creep into thy sorrow bed, Creep, and let no more be said, Vain thy cramming, e'en tho' fast.

P. vVll.l.IfXlNlS, JR. That towering Indian genius who has blazed as a new sun in the intellectual and spiritual Firmament of this generation has given to humanity a precious tes- tament to the joy of work. Rabindranath Tagore has graven his name deep upon the temple of im- mortality, which is the soul of man. His gospel will live and grow fresher under the weight of time because it plays upon the keynote of life in so many varied and enchanting ways-none louder and sweeter than that which calls to work as es- sential to the fulfillment of man's destiny. Unlike the great English apostle of work, Carlysle, whose giant intellect expounded in trip-hammer words, often dulling consciousness by the very im- pact, Tagore's pleadings fall like gentle rain upon the hungry earth, permeating to the roots of the soul. electrifying the mind and opening up myriads of new vistas of life which charm and strengthen because we hear and feel in them the ring of truth. The Upanishad says: "ln the midst of activity alone wilt thou desire to live a hundred years," Taking that as his text, Tagore in his essay on Realization in Action utters some beautiful sentiments on work. He says: "It is not the truth that man is active on compulsion. If there is compulsion on one side, on the other there is pleasureg on the one hand action is spurred on by want, on the other it hies to its natural fulfillment. That is why, as man's civilization advances. he increases his obligations and the work that he willingly creates for himself. One should have thought that nature had given him quite enough to do to keep him busy-in fact, that it was working him to death with the lash of hunger and thirst-but no. Man does not think that sufficientg he cannot rest content with only doing the work nature prescribes for him in com- mon with the birds and beasts. His needs must surpass all, even in activity. No creature has to work as hard as man: he has been impelled to continue for him- self a vast tield of action in society: and in this field he is forever building up and pulling down, making and umnaking laws. piling up material, and incessantly thinking, seeking and suffering. ln this field he has fought his mightiest battles, gained continual new life, made death glorious, and, far from evading troubles, has willingly and continually taken up the burden of trouble. l-le has discovered the truth he is not complete in the cage of his immediate surroundings, that he is greater than his present, and that while to stand still in one place may be coni- forting, the arrest of life destroys his tone function and the real purpose of his existence." lt is utterly beyond us to conceive of happiness or contentment coupled with idleness, or even with half-work. There must be a strenuous life to the very grave, tempered only by the weight of years, if one would only realize the joy of living to the fullest, The soul is that part of us which we know instinctively to be invulnerable. unconquerable. if fortitied by the activity of the body and in- tellect. lt is through the soul we realize, when there is unity of body and intellect, Page R11 lrnnms City Dental College The 0107 iVin21wI-Eizhfffn the utter vacuity of the word impossible. XVe feel the desire to be, to become. urging us onward and upward to a natural fulfillment: and we doubt not and fear not that any task is beyond our power of accomplishment. What a glorious field for action does the profession of Dentistry provide! In it there is play for every faculty of mind, for every organ of body. .Xnd, too. its service is so ennobling that an unfoldment of the soul is almost certain to follow in its wake. NYe know from the history of the profession what a galaxy of stars blaze upon the roster of Dentistry: stars whose effulgence light up our way to fame and fortune, and to social and political preferment-all made cer- tain under the magic impulse of work. lt is in the dental office that man Ends the widest scope for the exercise of his varied talents: it is there that executive ability may shine, and there, too, that the genius for judging and for organizing into unity of thought the varied minds of those presenting themselves for dental services. Moreover, it is in the den- tist's private office that the foundation for energetic and continuous action can best be laid. Therefore it is almost axiomatic, that he who succeeds largely in Dentistry has qualified for the highest place in the realm of his existence. XVhen a man First realizes that it is in action alone that he finds joy, then his hour of destiny has struck: and how thrice blest is he who makes the discovery while cultivating the rich field of Dentistry. Here we end with another quotation from Tagore: "lt is the very characteristic of life that it is not complete within itself: it must come out. Its truth is in the commerce of the inside and the outside. In order to live the body must maintain its various relations with the outside light and air-not only to gain life-force, but also to manifest it. Consider how fully employed the body is with its own inside activities: its heart-beat must not stop for a second, its stomach, its brain, must be ceaselessly working. Yet this is not enough: the body is outwardly restless all the while. lts life leads it to an end- less dance of work and play outside: it cannot be satisfied with the circulations of its eternal economy, and only finds the fulfillment of joy in its outward ex- cursions, ' "Success does not so much depend upon eternal help as on self-reliance."

The beginning of a professional career in Dentistry is always attended with many trials and disappointments. The student who has about finished the prescribed course feels himself bursting with knowledge. and that suffering humanity is calling to him with out- stretched arms and in heseeching tones cries out, "Come and deliver us from the depths of our ignorance and despair!" He goes, His castles are the fairest and his future the most marvelous. He has done such beautiful technic, why should not his practical work be better still away from the disconcerting bustle of the college infirinary, where the under-classmen are so anxious to offer suggestions and the over-critical ob- servations of the demonstrators make him nervous? Ile has no fear even for the State Board with its record of failing sixty per cent of applicants for license. for he has already purchased ton creditp a fold- ing chair, l4,fl6 oz. of soft gold, IQ oz. of peerless alloy, a vulcanizer and a tin safety box in which to place his stock of gold and to place for safe keeping what cash he may take in after banking hours. He has even selected a field for prac- lice. ln his new location he meets with great encouragement from his host of new friends, and evcn the "prominent people" have unmeauingly pledged their support. Then comes the long period of waiting-the night in which he dreams fond dreams and pictures for himself an ideal life. His awakening comes in the first patient. lt lavishes upon him his studio phrases and kind sympathy, and exercises his skill for the man's relief, After the second week, and maybe the sf-cond patient. he begins to calculate. "lf two patients in two weeks pay me tivo dollais each, how many weeks must the month give me in which to raise my rent nioney?" 'lihe days drag slowly along, and the close of each Ends him more discour- aged, The past is unreal and the future looks so drear and hopeless that he is almost tempted to give it up. XYhy not sell his professional skill to the llental l'arlors and ever after live an irresponsible life? Xkhy need he risk so much on an independent practice when he could be sure of a good salary? His better self then begins to assert itself. He imagines the disdain and contempt with which his old classmates and other members of the profession utter his name. He sees the disappointment of family and friends, :Xt least he will try it a little longer. Ile has great need for faith and hope, for his struggles have begun, .X man comes in with an aching tooth and wants it extracted. llc extracts it and Page 111 Kansas City Dental College The Olaf Nineteen-Eizhfwi breaks it off at the alveolus. He is too timid to go deeper and dismisses the patient. He has sense enough to know the man's opinion of him. How his vile epithets will counteract every kind word of praise from a chance friend. He listens breathlessly for the next step on the stairway, and when it comes an exultant throb fills his breast. This is surely the beginning of his good for- tune. Alas! It is an old patient. He notes in her face the forebodings of a storm. A gold filling has fallen out "while she was eating consomme"! He sees his lack of attention to details, and carefully replaces the filling. He now begins to lose faith in himself and dreads to meet his few patients on the street. But he is not yet convinced that he is altogether at fault. The pendulum swings back- ward: he sees a rift in the dark clouds: but where the merciless moonbeams have chilled his brow, now comes a ray of sunlight shining upon the smiling face of success. You who have watched him all along can see a change come over him. His sparkling eyes and his assumed air of importance indicate that he has been suc- cessful in his last operation. He looks upon the past as but a hideous nightmare, and with conviction exclaims, 'Sweet is pleasure after pain." His self-confidence returns. He no more "thinks" that he can accomplish a certain piece of work, but convincingly atiirms that he can do it, no matter how difficult. How glorious the coming years! One long vista of enpurpled vapors! l.ife seems one long crimson-glow of sunshine. But now again a halt is called in his rush to success: other failures crowd upon him, swiftly and sometimes almost overpoweringly, Experience is dearly bought, and he is more resigned to experiment and grad- ually falls into old ruts. Groping in the darkness and murmuring at his hard luck, he muses thus: There must be something radically wrong with me. Am I only a beginner? Why did not my college give me the knowledge? Education is not the taking of a degree, nor is brains more needed than tenderness and technic and common sense. There is no place in this modern world for the unskilled: no one can hope for any genuine success who fails to give himself the most complete special education. Good intentions count for nothing, and industry is thrown away if one cannot infuse a high degree of skill into his work. A man of medium skill depends upon fortunate conditions for success. He cannot command it nor keep it. The trained man has all the advantage on his side. The untrained man in- vites all the tragic possibilities of failure. I shall read much, and in the reading, study profoundly. At each step I shall think for myself, and, by thinking and experimenting, obtain the best results for myself. Through the years, up over the brow of the hill of life, down into the peaceful valley of shadows, no matter how long. the obstacles, however many, I shall ever seek a clean, honest char- acter and a well-earned reputation. Page 92 xmas City umm: enum Tb e Q10 r ivtmffn-Eighteen Cavity Preparation J. V. GONZETT. The fundamental principles of cavity preparation are the same, no matter what may be the material that we choose to complete the operation. The only difference will be such as the physical characteristics of the material or method may demand. For instance, we bevel the margins of all cavities that are to be filled with a metal, but owing to the weakness of porcelain or the silicates we are obliged to make a butt joint when we elect to make a filling with either ma- terial, and in the making of a gold or amalgam filling we are justified in using an undercut for retention, which would be impossible in the making of a cavity for the reception of an inlay. The system of cavity preparation that was developed by Dr. Black has be- come the accepted method in nearly all schools, and is the standard in practically all of the State Boards. There are a few of the older men who still decry the method for reasons known only to themselves, but they are so few and of such little importance in the profession that we are almost justified in saying that the Black system is universally adopted as the method of preparing cavities for the reception of a filling. XYe will not be able to enlarge upon the subject in a paper of the length this must be. so will only name the important principles and will not attempt any amplification of the subject. The outline form is one of the most important and the hardest fought of the principles enunciated by the great teacher. In the doctrine of extension for pre- vention we have the pronouncement that all of the lines of the cavity shall be carried out far enough to bring them into the areas that Dr. Blacks investiga- tions had found to be the ones of comparative immunity to decay, and, in a word, were those places upon the surfaces of the teeth that were habitually kept clean by the excursions of the food in mastication. and by the movement of the tongue and lips. These areas are all of the occlusal surfaces of the teeth except those in which there is a defect. as a pit or fissure in which the enamel plates have failed to fuse and consequently allow the bacteria and their products a ready access to the dentineg the smooth surfaces on the buccal, labial, and lingual por- tions of the teeth and all of the tooth surface protected by healthy gum tissue. Upon these surfaces we rarely or never find initial decay. Therefore, it is rea- sonable to carry the margins of our fillings out of the area of susceptibility, where we would be in danger of having a secondary decay around our filling, into the portion of the tooth surface where we would be reasonably sure that there would not be a recurrence of decay. Dr. Hlack fottnd by his investigations of the physical characteristics of the teeth and filling materials, coupled with his profound knowledge of physics and Page 9.1 Kansas City ne,-mr comge Tb e Q10 r Nineteen-Eighteen the laws of mechanics, that the strongest and most resistant Filling was one made in a cavity that was seated on a Hat base and confined within parallel walls. In other words, a cavity that was box-shaped, giving to the filling a square shape, was thc strongest and would most ably resist all the forces that would tend to dislodge it. Therefore, we advise the making of all cavities as nearly as possible with Hat seats and parallel walls. No matter how correct may be the shape of a cavity, if you cannot perfectly fill it all of your work is useless: therefore, we advise making the cavity so ac- cessible that you will be able to fill it with the material you have chosen. This we call the convenience form, and is most important. The removal of all decay is of paramount importance, for if any decay is left, even though the cavity is perfectly filled, the remaining organisms and their products are left to be a menace to the vitality of the pulp, and under some con- ditions keep on decaying even under an otherwise good filling. The last point and one of prime importance is the preparation of the cavo- surface angle. This is the angle of the cavity at the surface thereof, hence its name. In making this angle we bevel the margin of the cavity in such a way that all short enamel rods are removed and a good strong surface is left against which to make your filling. Perfect yourself in every step of your operation, making every step an auto- matic and natural sequence, and you will gain in speed and assurance that will make your operations a joy to yourself and you a source of confidence to your patients.

C, this year it was with somewhat of a struggle. Ihings had changed and were different from our preceding years, and why? Because Uncle Sam had sent notices to many of us to appear at various camps to serve lnm. All responded with a hymn: "Some people were made to be soldiers, The Irish were made to be copsg Sauerkraut was made for the Germans, Spaghetti was made for the wopsg Fish were made for the waterg Bums were made to drink booze, Banks were made for money: Money was made for the jews, Everything was made for someone, For everyone except the miser. God made Wfilson to be President, But who in H-l made the Kaiser?" - Progress In Dentistry D, F. CROAKE, FR. As with Medicine, so has Dentistry progressed with time. In 1697 Peter the Great of Russia, while on a visit to Holland, learned to pull teeth and the first principles of Dentistry in three months. He sought this education to relieve his people from suffering dental ailments. Dentistry was practiced merely for the relief of suffering in those days, and normal restorations were an unborn thought. Even their methods of extraction at that time were very crude and painful. Dentistry has advanced from the short course of three months to four years, and still, to delve deep enough in any one part of it so we might specialize, we must take special courses in addition to the four years to properly fit ourselves for such a practice. The public is learning the value of professional services, and this education is bringing the profession up to its proper place among professions. Now we do not merely seek to relieve pain by removing teeth, but we fight to allay the misery caused to the patient by the offending tooth and bring peace between tooth and patient so it may remain there for future service. More time is now devoted to the esthetic part of Dentistry and normal restorations. As we all know, there is a time when some teeth do not reach us until they are beyond the power of human mind and hand to restore, and in such cases extraction is compulsory: but thanks to tSoodyear's invention, in 1851, normal occlusion may be restored by properly fitting dentures, and we can bring back that youthful ap- pearance by ten years if we but heed the teachings of Professor Christy. Page 95 xmas my omni enum The olar Ni-mm-Eff'-fm Devitalization and Treatment of Teeth E. D. M'ENVEN, SR. In my judgment the most discouraging phase of Dentistry to the student,and the least profitable part to the general practitioner is the treatment of devitalized teeth. My own experience and that of others related to me convince me we must master this particular branch if we are to be successful. Since it is the discom- fiture of affected dental nerves that prompts the patient to consult us, it is up to us to know how to treat such cases scientifically, No other alternative will war- rant our starting into the profession. As shown by the almost unlimited volume of literature now being published in the form of books, magazines and papers. this phase of Dentistry is the most important topic before the profession today. With all this information available it is the lamentable truth that the greater number of practitioners come under the head of being grossly ignorant or negli- gent. XN'e should proclaim our intention to be eHicient in root-canal work or forever retire from any and all branches of Dentistry. If we are to be negligent in the most important part or foundation, how our shortcomings will multiply in the less important branches. Those who have planned on taking it easy in this profession should at once invest in a plot of ground in a remote part of the world where they can sit on the sunny side of a muddy creek and there spend an unin- terrupted life, rather than purchase a dental outfit. Many times in my limited practice I have been exasperated to the limit of my endurance fand my classmates will tell you that is a long wayj because I could not locate a certain root-canal. My observation of others brought home to me the fact we lacked the rudimentary principles of the part we were engaged in. First, we did not know the anatomy of the teeth, Second, when we attempted to devitalize a tooth the all important law of normal blood circulation and active and passive hyperemia never entered our craniums. Of course, we had an oppor- tunity to acquaint ourselves with these facts, but the discovery of someone with a healthy development of Uhypertrophied brain tissue" led some to the belief they could "get by" without wasting their time in idle study. As a result, a few regard root-canal work as a useless part of Dentistry. These few will always find a wel- come consolation in advertising offices. In spite of the fact we were often handicapped by the lack of co-operation of many patients, there is no reason why all should not be fairly proficient in this phase of the profession. Those experiencing their first infirmary practice should take stock in the slogan: "It can be done." Page U6 Kansas City Dental College e Qlaf Nineteen-Eighteen It is claimed eighty per cent of root-canal fillings are inefficiently handled, and by stern determination it would have been possible to fill seventy per cent of these failures. lf it is not your intention to master the shortcomings and failures of the old order, it is your duty to never enter the dental practice. The public will pay well for good work, and those who elect to neglect it are compensated accord- ingly. At that they are being over-paid. At the present time the medical profession's attention is focused on the dental profession and many irresponsive patients are being directed to the dentist. This is a reward rather than a rebuke. The physician when in doubt invariably lays the trouble to disease or infection of the root-canals. It is your realm as a dentist to meet the physician, surgeon and patient with an impenetrable reserve of knowledge, especially in reference to the various con- ditions which may arise in the pulp chamber and how to overcome them. 7? aa Page 97 xmas city Dental College The olgr .vmefm-Efghim Determine to Succeed I.. D. GRAY. Her mistress meets Armandy on the village street. "Armandy, where are you going?" "Nowhar, Miss -Iennieg I ain't goin' nowhar. l'se done been whar Tse goin'." Among workers of all kinds, some are not going at all, unless backward, to the place where they have been. They care nothing, apparently, for the greater gains that always come to determined men. They are content to stay where they are, with no reaching-out for greater efticieny, for larger services. It would be as hard to arouse them to real accomplishments as to unscranible eggs. The truly ambitious seek to meet the conditions of leadership, of real success. Such men win, because they study and work toward greater erficieny. XVhen the opportunity comes, they are able to grasp it. The decision to "make good" is the all-important thing. One of the most valuable citizens of America recently said, "The thing most needed in the vicinity of a dangerous precipice is a good strong fence at the top, rather than an ambulance at the bottom." One reasonable test of the value of a message spoken or written is this: Did it give me some one or two things to think about? Most men apparently are quite unwilling to do much real thinking. In these times a good deal of thinking is being done second-handed. More first-hand thinking would make secure the fence at the top of the precipice and render less necessary the ambulance at the bottom, The object of this message is to stimulate wholesome thoughtfulness. Do some real thinking, sto-p talking, and think awhile: get ready for your oppor- tunity, which is awaiting you. Reach out eagerly for success! A decent amount of money is necessary to p1'oper living and happiness, and it will come if an intelligent and genuine effort is made to secure it. But do not confuse success with mere money-getting. The latter may be crooked and flighty. The former is straight and lasting. Those who are selfish and self-centered have not the wealth of friends and associations to make life worth living. As you determine to succeed, strengthen your will and stiffen your backbone with the thought that you will have no unworthy motive. You will nct work merely for money, or luxury, or even culture, but for the means with which to live a happy and complete life. No life is complete that does not contribute to the happiness of others, and the money is needed to enable one to be of the Page 98 Kansas City Dentalffollcge Olaf Nineleen-Eighteen greatest service. You can do your best work only if you are impelled by the highest motives. As you are working for success, make a high resolve to be a man before being a workman, professional or business man. Nothing will compensate for lack of character or moral fiber. Reach out for success in a hopeful mood-think success. hope success, be- lieve success. Then you will work for success and you will succeed. It has been said that there are three prime conditions of happiness in work: First, be thoroughly prepared for the work that you are preparing to do. Second, do your work so well that you yourself can approve of it. Third, do not do too much of it. Excessive fatigue must be avoided: under it you cannot have good self-control. The quality of your work drops with your loss of fine control. Do not let your work get "on top of you." You should keep "on top of your work." Right now, as you are hoping for better things, get this thought: A'Success is not luck nor pull, but the largest, hardest job that you ever tackled." Pugr 90 :mmm City oem: comm The 0107- ivmeim-Efzhl-wa The Evolution of Dentistry men MVINTOSH. The practice of Dentistry in some form is as old as the human race. How- ever crude the effects may have been, we are justified in believing that men have tried, from the earliest time, to render assistance to their fellowman in case of ill- ness. In due time the natural instinct inherited in both man and beast led to the utilization of the products of their immediate surroundings, primarily of herbs and later of animal drugs. VVith the evolution of the races the practice of se- lecting suitable remedies for certain diseases became a matter of systematic ob- servation and study. The early history of dental medicines is so closely interwoven with that of medical therapeutics that it is impossible to distinguish it from its mother science. The Babylonians, Egyptians, Assyrians, Hebrews, Hindus, Greeks and Romans were the early cultured inhabitants of whom history records exist. To the cul- tured Romans, who were highly conscious of the blessings of personal hygiene, the demand for the services of some genius who would keep their organs of mas- tication in perfect condition was a necessity. The treatment of abscesses, caries and loose teeth seems to have been known. The Hindus were apparently very proud of their teeth. It is recorded that the use of the tooth powders, washes, and especially the use of the tooth-cleaner, were the necessities of their daily toilet. As a tooth-pick they employed a bitter tasting wood, which when chewed produced a fibrous bundle, which was then used as a brush for the gums and teeth. Some of the simpler dental remedies of that time were licorice, dog's milk, goat's butter, the gall of a cow, wormwood, alum, pepper, nutgall, cloves, pitch, mustard seed, the heart of a magpie, the fat of mice and lice, Among other remedies may be found that "if one wishes to be free from toothache one should eat a whole mouse twice a month." Numerous specimens of Roman and Etruscian bridges. crowns and bands have been found in burial places, .-Xrtiticial teeth seem to have been quite fash- ionable with the Roman dames. The professional dentist who presented himself as a tooth-puller, barber and leech was a familiar figure at market places and fairs. The extraction of the aching tooth was an incentive for the sale of some tooth preparation for the prevention of pain in the remaining teeth. To signify his profession he had his belt garnished with a string of extracted teeth and wore a large red, conspicuous cap. The drugs which were principally applied as dental agents were usually such as were also employed for disturbances of a similar pathologic nature in other parts of the body. Many of the essential oils-the oil of cloves, cinnamon, pep- Page 100 Kansas City DenlalCoIlege Olaf Ni"4'f9e"l'EfEhfffYl permint, spearmint. turpentine, and several others-have been employed for many centuries as agents in the treatment of pulps and also as mouth preparations. Wlith the exception of a few monographs, the early literature of Dentistry is found scattered among the various treatises on general medicine. Since then a large number of books have been published, and an especially large number in the last decade. The first dental periodical of this or any other country appeared in 1839 under the name of the "American journal of Dental Science." The first regularly organized society of any importance was the 'tA1nerican Society of Dental Surgery," which was founded in New York August 8, 1840. The birth of Dentistry as a distinct and definite profession may be recorded simultaneously with the date of the incorporation of the first dental college of the world, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, which received its charter in 1839. Its iirst session commenced the following year. Medicine and Dentistry were from that time practically divorced, and, while Dentistry in its ea1'lier days depended very largely on medicine for its further de- velopment, it bases its fundamental strides at present on general biology, exactly in the same manner as medicine or any other branch of the healing art is forced to do. . i What Counts lt isn't the had that you did down there.

Professors may have been silent in the past, but they will some times appeal to your better judgment, giving the man who has lost in the race courage to rise and look his classmates in the face. In time these creatures or crawfishs sense of balance develops, because they turn over and walk on their feet right side up.

In time we come to realize the depth of the study of Dentistry. Knowledge gained in all subjects pertaining thereto have proven valuable. So if you have classmates call your roll number thinking to deceive the professors in regard to your attendance, the time will present itself when you will envy the quizmaster who may recall some facts in physiology which makes clear the digestion and assimilation of foodstuffs. How often some have wondered where in Dentistry shall we apply our chemical principles and embryology tests. Probably you missed the very lecture explaining the whys and wherefores. ln the infirmary we are given an opportunity to display our salesmanship and esthetic ability, and often use the X-Ray on the patient's money-bag. ln ex- treme cases we have administered conductive anesthesia to make them forget until the contract is signed. But though a retrospective glance reminds you some subjects have not been available in your limited college practice. master minds tell ns we will have ample opportunity to refer back to every subject of the cur- riculum and we will regret it did not contain a few additional subjects. XYe may ascend to the highest pinnacle of the course and then fall into the mire when we put our theories into practice. so let me insist upon the importance of faithful study and attendance. Many times in practice a condition arises with which we are not thoroughly familiar.

Kansas City Dental College f Nineteen-Eighteen Radiography When in 1895 Roentgen discovered those peculiar ethereal waves which he chose to call the X-Ray, he gave to the medical and dental professions a wonder- ful allv. Mans eyes could see the outer aspect of the human body and the progress of disease there. Experience and research had aided him in understanding many changes which took place internally, but it remained for the X-Ray, or. as it is now known, the Roentgen Ray, to clear up to a great exteat the matter of affec- tions about and within the bony structures of the body. lt has obviated the necessity of sacrificing healthy tissue in a blind groping for a seat of affection. The radiograph points out the affected area and thus materially aids in its erad- ication. The Roentgen Ray is becoming of supreme importance to the dentist in as- sisting him in diagnosis. It lays before his eyes a picture showing bone lesions. dental canal troubles, and antral complications which he would otherwise have completely overlooked. Or he may use it to confirm or change his opinion con- cerning a suspected seat of infection. ln cases of fractures of the maxillary bones, he does not go about blindly in replacing the parts to their correct rela- tionship, but the radiograph is a definite guide which shows him the exact points of fracture and the relation of the malposed parts. Impactions, pathological conditions, etc., are handled much more easily and more scientifically when the Roentgen Ray is used. These days we hear much of focal infections and their relation to systemic affections. The dental profession is being held responsible for the condition about the roots of teeth, and the radiograph has shown many focal infections to exist about teeth that have been devitalized. The same means that shows up the faults must be used by the dentist to check up on his work and make sure he has done all in his power to prevent fur- ther trouble. and has done so in a logical way and not haphazardly. It is the duty of the medical and dental professions to co-operate as never before. putting forth every effort in solving the problem of eliminating those conditions which menace life and health. The radiograph has shown this menace often lies about the teeth and has been an eye-opener as to the value of the proper care of the teeth. lt is helping bring Dentistry into its own. Shall we not take advantage of the promotion? Pug: 107 xmas my nam.: College The olar Nineteen-Efznreen My First Patient G. T. BENSON, JR. My first year in Dental College was one of theory and laboratory work. Many times I wished I might go into the iniirmary or operating room to do some supposed to be real dental work. Wlieii my first year was completed I was one step nearer the infirmary. During the summer months I gave little thought to the dread of my first patient. October came very soon, however, and I returned for another year. The first thing to be done was to purchase an engine, instru- ments and case. I looked at them wondering how, when and where I would use each one. I then had a feeling I can better conceive in my own mind than speak with my tongue. If I should attempt to express it in words, I would say, a feeling of dismay. A few days later while sitting in the infirmary several patients entered. l. looked for something else to do, but it seemed impossible for me to escape. I was quite positive I would get one. Sure enough, hardly had I time to take a second thought when one of the doctors tapped me on the shoulder and inquired if 1 wanted a patient. I would just as soon he had hit me with a clubg it would not have frightened me any more. There was nothing for me to do but answer, yes. I sat there a minute dazed, not knowing what to do or say. I succeeded in raising my anatomy from the chair and advanced toward the patient. A sort of weak- ness came over me, and surely my face was as red as blood could make it, I inet the gentleman and requested him to come to another room. Now I began to exercise my power as an ante-dentist. I seated him, brought forth engine and case of instruments, subconsciously opened the case and gazed wonderingly at the many instruments. Not knowing which instru-- ment to use first, and after picking up and laying down every instrument in the case, I chose the mouth mirror. The examination proceeded and the mirror was in his mouth when I noticed his head in a very peculiar position, which reminded me I had neglected to adjust the head-rest, and to add to my embarrassment l knew not how to adjust it. Though I had ample timc previously to learn how, I did not avail myself of the opportunity, so when I pushed on one of the levers with my foot down came the back of the chair and my patient with it. Naturally I was in a very embarrassing position. I informed the patient the chair was broken and requested him to move into the next chair, which was vacant. This time I was lucky enough to push the right lever and adjusted the chair to the best of my ability or, rather, knowledge. Once more I took the mirror to observe the defects in the teeth, After a few minutes of my keen observation and from the view which stared me in the Page 108 xmas cny umm cvuege The Qlar .vmreenveignieen face I thought-but not out loud-the trouble must be in the top set, for a number of his teeth looked dark and gloomy: but when he felt me picking around his uppers he soon informed me his trouble was in the lower right first bicuspid. After locating the cavity, which was in a conspicuous place, I then ventured Lo remove the decay. I am quite sure I used over half of the instruments in my case in the cleaning out of this cavity. My procedure was very complex, taking Dr. Black as my standard. One instrument was used to remove the decay and then laid asideg dried the cavity with cotton and chip blower, sterilized it or washed it out with water and then dived for another instrument to repeat the operation. I kept this up for some- time until I noticed the patient yawning and seemed exhausted, and I thought it must be time to let him go for the day. VVe are so thoroughly drilled on sterilizat tion and sanitation, so I took every precaution to prevent those deadly bacteria we've heard tell about from sneaking into that cavity before I could seal it, and then I planted the temporary stopping into it. I made another appointment and dismissed the patient. I really think he thought it ,would be a disappointment. To me it was: he did not return.

Pug in xmas cn, Dental cottage Tb e ola r Ninerm-Efghrm Amalgam Restorations ROBT. G. REED. It is a well-known fact that a few weeks previous to the clinical examination usually held by the State Board of Dental Examiners, the most absorbing topic among those expecting to take the examination is their probable outcome in in- serting a class three gold foil. The consensus of opinion prevails if this piece of work is successful their greatest obstacle is over. Wliile it is no easy task to successfully make a gold foil restoration, I be- lieve experienced men will agree it requires more skill to properly insert a class two amalgam filling, both from the standpoint of cavity preparation and in the manipulation of the material. There are several factors which probably have led to the misconceived idea as to which of the two fillings requires the greater skill. First, the fact that gold is more expensive than amalgam generally prompts the operator to be more ap- prehensive in his technic. Again, cohesive gold is useless if contaminated, which is a warning to the operator to be careful. The fact that a class three foil is partially exposed to view impresses the operator and he endeavors to make a perfect margin. A better fee is generally received for a gold filling, and no de- tails are overlooked in this restoration. On the other hand, the idea of the cheapness of amalgam has led to careless methods in manipulating such a filling. Many practitioners insert such fillings disinterestedly and with a feeling if it is a failure it is easily remedied with a minor loss. In comparing the points to be observed in a class two cavity and class three, few words are required to prove cavity preparation of the former requires more skill on account of comparative inaccessibility. In cutting a class two cavity to resist displacement of the filling, is it not plain such a cavity requires maximum resistance, while a class three cavity needs only sufficient retention and resist- ance to facilitate the malleting in of the foil? The class two has more line angles, more paint angles and walls to be observed and properly treated. A cavity in a bicuspid is exceedingly difficult to cut to the desired depth without endangering the pulp or even exposing it. In class three the direction in which the greatest cutting is involved never endangers the nerve. Another point which is of great advantage to the operator in making a class three gold foil filling is the fact the treating of the margins is a compara- tively easy task on account of their accessibility. In a class two filling the gingival margin is extremely difficult to prepare. This is one of the most es- sential points to observe in such a filling, since this may be a seat of secondary Page 112 Kflflwi City Dffil11lC0lIege The Olaf iVinermisEigh1een decay. liingivitis and pyorrliea follow in the wake of the rough, overhanging gingival margins. XYhile this treatise is not intended to champion the cause of amalgam as a tilling material over gold, it will be admitted if as great care were exercised in the manipulation of amalgam as that of gold, the so-called 'tsilver filling" would not be associated with the class of patients who are looking for cheap dental service. There is no reason why an amalgam restoration which serves to better advantage than other materials should not bring the practitioner a worthy compensation. The fee should be commanded for service rather than material used. tlt is a mistaken idea to lead the public to believe you are sell- ing precious metals: that is an intrusion on the jeweler's businessj l'rinciples prescribed by lllack should be followed in cavity preparation, not because Black says so, but because all the principles of scientific Operative Dentistry are involved therein. Many patients expect a filling to be completed at one sitting. Do not permit the patient to tell you how long it should require to insert a filling. For instance. a mesial proximal cavity in an upper first molar should be pre- pared to the extent of gaining proper accessibility for a means of separation to be produced partly in the tooth involved and the adjacent tooth. This will greatly facilitate cutting away the more inaccessible parts of the cavity at the next sitting and will also restore the normal position of the tooth. .Xnotlier important ob- ject in preliminary separation will be to obtain a perfect contact point. If the adjacent teeth are separated, say one millimeter, when the restoration is made there will be a space the thickness of the matrix band, which should be entirely closed. The forcing apart ot' the two teeth one millimeter will be surticient stress on the peridental membrane and surrounding tissues to restore the teeth to their normal position. My procedure in such a case would be to pack gutta-percha in the proximal part of the cavity and allow it to be of service in niasticatiug. The separation obtained in a day or two is surprising. The separating medium should be packed in such a way as to force back the gingival tissue in the proximal space. This gives the operator a clear view of the Held of operation and permits the cutting of the gingival wall at a level be- neath the normal position of the free margin of the gum. After insertion of filling the tissue will resume its normal position, serving as the best possible preventive of secondary decay. XVhen the gum margin is forced back it gives excellent opportunity to trim and polish the gingival margin, one of the essential points to be observed in any filling. .Xt the second sitting gutta-percha should be removed and rubber-dam placed, The cutting can be done more quickly, with less pain and with less ob- scurity by saliva. lJon't let a patient tell you when and where to use the rubberf dam. lt is to the interest of both patient and operator that the dam be used. Page 114 Kansas City Denralcwllege The Olaf Nfneleen-Eizhlwn The cavity prepared, the matrix should be placed so as to secure a perfect closure at the gingival, buccal and lingual sides. The band should not be close to the enamel margins, for a good marginal covering cannot be obtained in such a small crevice. Best results are obtained if amalgam overhangs the outer surface of the tooth about a millimeter. Later the removal of excess will be explained. The mix: Either a mortar and pestle or a fair-sized piece of rubber-dam should be used. After the mix has taken the form of a putty-like mass, great efficiency can be obtained by kneading it in the palm of the hand. This part of it should not be viewed by the patient. W'hen the mass has reached the stage of consistency where mercury will appear when gently massaged, a small portion about the size of a pea is laid aside and the excess mercury squeezed out of the remainder. Place half the small piece in the gingival portion of cavity and ma- nipulate it thoroughly until the mercury appears. Crowd the mass into all angles and down around the margins, Add pieces of amalgam from the drier mass. Press and mallet into place. The next step is to place other half of the small piece in the floor of the occlusal step. XVork in the same previous manner. Quick action is required from this point, and by the time you reach the occlusal surface the small amount of excess mercury you left in the first piece will have traversed the entire mass. Pack occlusal surface nearly as high asthe cusps, using large pluggers, so the amalgam will be packed and not stirred around. Excess mercury remains on top. XYith spoon excavator or other instrument tiick it off. Smooth entire occlusal surface with fiat or knife-edge burnisher without trying to establish anatomical characteristics. Five minutes later proceed to scoop away superfluous amalgam and make mesio-buccal transverse groove as well as the disto-buccal transverse groove, if involved in restoration. If these lines are properly restored the remaining characteristics can easily be established. Before the amalgam has reached the stage where carving is difficult the matrix should be removed and the gingival, lingual and buccal margins perfectly trimmed. The gingival margin should be polished with a narrow sand-paper strip and the others with a file or instrument with sharp ninety-degree angle. VVhen the occlusal marks are being carved the patient should be requested to close the mouth gently and the marks shown carved deeper. XVhen making the grooves the superfluous amalgam on the incline planes should be removed, drawing the instrument towards the filling. At the time of scraping the amalgam will be sufficiently set so as to cause the peculiar "tin cry" we have heard so much about. The material is now strong enough to prevent the breaking of the margins. Above all things to observe on the occlusal surfaces is the mesial mar- ginal ridge, If filling material slopes toward the approximal space the patient will return complaining of the toothache from eating meat. Food will force it- self between the teeth. separating them and irritating gum tissue. In regard to matrix band it is best to use patented retainer. The band bur- nished down as much as you estimate will allow the patient to close the mouth. Page 114 Kansas City Dental College Qlaf Nineteen-Eighteen Remove matrix retainer as soon as you are ready to cure for the occlusal sur- face. As soon as the amalgam resists scraping edge of your carving instru- ment remove band and care for the gingival, labial and buccal margins. Trim inargins as near to a polish from that time, as it will be difficult to trim over- hanging margins after it has set. Rubber-dam may have to be removed to gain access. Before dismissing patient see that no undue stress is on any part of the restoration. f?

"I was rumbling along in a street ear the other day when a hatch of young fellows got on," says a ranehman, who is visiting Kansas City. "I judged that they were dental students by their funny clothes and queer shaped heads. The ear was pretty full, and they pushed and snorted back and forth in the aisle, tramping on peoples feet and committing similar frivolities that-zu-way. Bimeby they all rared back and fetched loose a long yell. Then the nearest one to me took a look. and not admiring my face or something, says: "Well, my rural friend, don't you like it F" "Shore, I like it!" says I. "I'm half-wittetl myself!" Inconvenient.

Une reason for it may be assumed that most of the boys thought that they resembled the lxaiser when they thus tried to camouflage. and of course they wanted to remain popular.
