THE SCHIOCL GF
DENTISTRY GF THE
HE ULTIMATE GOAL toward which every phase of
the healing art is consecrated is the mitigation of human
suffering and pain. In man's centuries of struggle
toward this end progress has been rapid only when
considering the magnitude of the task and realizing
that hand in hand with every advancing stride in civili-
zation go untold hardships and strife as Well as strong opposition
from a Doubting Thomas World. One of the greatest steps in this
direction Was made just one hundred years ago this year, in 1844,
When Horace Wells, an American dentist, first gave to the World
an agent Which would render the human body insensible to pain.
It is difficult for us of today to realize that the time is not far
past when every stroke of the scalpel and every grip of the forcep
brought agonizing cries, excruciating pain and anguish. The fact
that such conditions do not exist today, even in the deepest surgery,
is due primarily to the efforts of this one man.
His contribution was not only of supreme intrinsic value, but
also one which opened wide the hitherto tightly barred doors to
greater surgical advancement. There is not a single man in all
history Who has more right to the title GREAT than Horace Wells.
The fact that he was an American dentist is rightly a source of joy
and everlasting pride to our Nation as a
Whole and our profession in particular. The
debt of all mankind to this one individual
is inestimable. Thus it is altogether fitting
and proper that in his Centennial this
twenty-fifth Volume of the Bushwhacker
is to him most humbly dedicated.
UN THE LAND
Many years ago to the QPSONIN of the Western Dental
College and the MCLAR of the Kansas City Dental College was
born a bouncing baby BUSHWHACKER. Since that time this
lad has grown to become a perfect example of a fine upstand-
ing professional gentleman. This year he is celebrating his Silver
Anniversary . . . Volume XV. Thus in his honor We have produced
a "double" issue which We hope you will enjoy.
It has been the major task confronting every annual staff since
1881 to keep step with the rapid progress of their Alma Mater and
with Dentistry. None have ever achieved this goal nor will they,
the pace is far too fast.
Between these covers We have humbly endeavored to capture
UN THE SEA
.mf IN THE Am
and hold for the years to come, a vivid picture of our college days
during the War years. We have tried to make these pages alive and
interesting, recalling the trials and tribulations, the joys and
triumphs encountered in our ardent quest for greater knowledge.
We hope that this BUSHWHACKER may act as a supplement in
the recollection of incidents which time will mellow and only
memory can truly appreciate. If We have been successful to this
extent our efforts will not have been in vain.
A 4 It is our fondest hope that before another BUSHWHACKER
comes rolling from the presses, War and chaos will have fled this
World and that the Dove of Peace will again reign supreme.

THE SEAL OF THE SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY OF
THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS CITY1
A SEAL is a design which usually presents the ideals of a nation, an
institution or an estate. If, by proper symbolism, it represents accurately
that for which it stands it can portray, at a glance, far more than could
volumes of the written word.
The periphery of this insignia is formed by the Latin equivalent for
"The University of Kansas City-School of Dentistryf' The central figure
shows the torch of knowledge about which is entwined the single serpent
of Aesculapius, the Roman God of Medicine, to illustrate that we seek
knowledge in the art of healing. The wings of Mercury or Hermes are
the only remnants of the Caduseus which for so long symbolized medicine
but which actually bears no mythological relationship to that art.
The Greek Delia for dentistry and Omicron for Odont meaning tooth
signify to what branch of the medical science we are devoted. The open
volumesuperimposed over the central figure bears the Latin inscription,
"Omnia Vincit Scientia" literally, "Knowledge conquers all things"--our
motto. At the base is seen "founded 1881 A.D."
It is hoped that this seal replaces that of The University now used on
most of the literature of the School of Dentistry.

HE progress and growth of our Alma Mater is one of the most
romantic chapters in the history of American education. As in 1881
when she answered a pioneer need, so today she answers a modern need
by preparing her sons to care for the health needs of a nation at war, on
the battlefront as well as the homefront.
OR over half a century the School of Dentistry has grown . . . in
students, faculty and staff 5 in buildings and equipment, in methods of
teaching, in effectiveness and spirit. From a humble start in 1881 with
three members in the beginning class, it has grown to become one of the
largest, finest and oldest institutions in all dental education with almost
5,000 of her sons serving to make the world a healthier and happier place
in which to live. The fact that this feat was accomplished without gov-
ernment assistance or large endowments is indeed a tribute to the fine
men whose genius has guided her.
AN institution such as ours can be likened to a tree in that its useful-
ness depends upon its continuous growth. School records like the age
rings of the giant sequoia calibrate variations of growth. In some periods
its growth is luxuriantg in others sparse. And like that same giant sequoia
our Alma Mater in its steady growth has put down tenacious roots deep
into the rich earth that is America and sends forth long glorious branches
into the sun to bring comfort and refreshment to the hearts of genera-
tions of men.

HDENTISTRY cannot continue at its present high tempo of
progress Without the diligent instruction and proper training of
its students. Thus upon the shoulders of the faculty of any great
institution such as ours, rests enormous responsibility. The fact
that the progress of dentistry has been so rapid is fitting tribute
to their tireless efforts. y
We are justly proud of our faculty. It is unsurpassed in the
entire field of dental education. It is a faculty of versatility, com-
posed of men high in their respective fields-general practitioners,
specialists, teachers, men of science and research-Well-equipped
to demonstrate the practical as Well as the theoretical aspects of
The democracy, informality and friendly attitude existing
between faculty and student body produce an environment con-
ducive to the quest of knowledge.
To uphold their torch of achievement and example will be

WEBSTER'S dictionary gives the meaning of credit as, "Reliance on the truth or
reality of something, a favorable reputation, a source of honor."
Whether or not a person has cash in the bank, bonds, or other valuable material
possessions, he is compelled to establish credit-a favorable reputation if he expects to
successfully participate in the business or social affairs of life. And if a person has
no money or material wealth but has other possessions such as character and ambition
he can establish a reputation which will give him credit.
Reputation meriting credit usually starts early in life with a desire to know and
to do, however, some individuals have an awakening to the demands and possibilites in
life after a hard cruel world has borne down upon their weaknesses. I
J. Pierpont Morgan was at one time a witness before a congressional committee.
Attorney Samuel Untermyer asked Mr. Morgan whether credit was based upon money.
The financier said emphatically, UNO. It has no relation. I know lots of men-business
men, who can borrow almost any amount of money whose credit is unquestionablef'
The attorney asked, "Is it not because it is believed that they have money or goods
or property back of them?
"No," said Mr. Morgan, "It is because they believe in the man. He might not have
"A man came into my office and I gave him a check for a million dollars and I
knew that he had not a cent in the worldf'
"Are there many such men?" asked Untermyer.
"Yes," said Mr. Morgan, umany of themf'
"Are not commercial credits based upo-n the possession of money or property?"
asked attorney Untermyer.
"No sir," said Mr. Morgan, "the first thing is character."

S I WRITE these lines our country and its allies are girding their loins for the most
critical and titantic struggle in their history. In such a time we must take sober stock
of ourselves. We must bend every effort-our physical strength, our intellectual
power, our spiritual force-to the appointed task. We must make sure that victory will
be ours on the battlefields now and on our total life in the years ahead.
In this momentous hour the task of Universities is three-fold: QU to contribute
their full resources to the undiminished prosecution of the warg Q21 to maintain the
unbroken continuity of learning and research, and UQ to ponder deeply and plan wisely
for the days of peace to come.
As students of our School of Dentistry-one of the outstanding institutions of its
kind in our country-you have, and must continue, to share responsibility in this
three-fold task. You must give unstintingly to the war effort. You must actively
promote, in the years ahead, the advancement of knowledge and the practice of your
profession. You must, as useful citizens, contribute to the expanded welfare of your
country and of all humanity.
Your Alma Mater sends its best wishes with you as you go forth into this larger
service. It will always be deeply interested in your growth and development. It hopes
you will remember her and her contributions to you. Wherever you are and whatever
you achieve, you are the University and the University is you.

HARRY A. ALLSHOUSE, JR., D.D.S.
HARRY A. ALLSHOUSE, JR., D.D.S., a mem-
ber of the faculty of the University of Kansas City,
School of Dentistry, and director of the Depart-
ment of Orthodontics, passed away December 7,
1943, at his home in Wichita, Kansas.
Dr. Allshouse was born at Hannibal, Missouri,
September 30, 1895. He graduated from the Kan-
sas City Dental College in 1917. Immediately upon
graduation he entered his specialty, the practice of
Orthodontics. He built one of the first bungalow
offices devoted to his specialty.
He married Mrs. Abigail Eaton of Wichita, in
1940, and shortly afterwards took over the prac-
tice of Dr. J. E. O'Donnell of that city who was
called into service. Up to the time of his death
he operated two offices, the one in Kansas City and
the other in Wichita. He also spent a half day a
week at The University of Kansas City, School of
His illness was brief and his passing was a shock
to the entire dental profession of Kansas City as
well as his friends throughout the nation. He loved
hunting, fishing, and boating and frequently
visited a ranch in Durango, Colorado, in which
he and Dr. H. C. Pollock of St. Louis were inter-
ested. He was past president of the Kansas City
District Dental Society, The Missouri State Dental
Association, and The American Association of
Dr. Allshouse possessed an unusual personality.
The faculty and student body had a warm spot in
their hearts for Dr. Allshouse whose unbounding
energy was an inspiration to all those who knew
him. He was a most generous person-generous to
a fault, and keenly interested in the welfare of
all his friends.
Besides his widow he leaves his mother, Nlrs.
Sarah E. Allshouse, and his stepson, William Eaton.
February 16, 1944
The student governing bodies consist of the Student Council of the University,
the Student Council of the School of Dentistry and the Interfraternity Council. Their
duties consist of dealing with the problems and activities of the student body. They
are practical in that they give the student experience in self-government and show him
the folly of red tape. The Student Council of the University consists of two repre-
sentatives from each class of each school of the University which forms the lower house
and a senator from each school to form the senate or upper house. A president, vice-
president, secretary and treasurer are elected annually from the entire University. Meet-
ings are held weekly in the Administration Building on the Campus.
The intereit of the dental student in the University Council manifested itself by
their electing the president and vice-president dental students for the past two years.
In 1942-43 there were four representatives to the Councilg this figure jumped to eight
and a senator the following year.
Interest at the moment is somewhat on the wane due to the fact that the constitu-
tion permits only juniors of the University to be elected officers of the Council and
under the accelerated program there was no junior class at the School of Dentistry
until the lst of February. It seems hardly fair that such a ruling should prevent the
dental student, because he is studying summer and winter without vacation, from at
least being nominated for these 0Hices.
Another cause for the wane in interest may be due to the fact that in spite of the
theoretical powers of the University Council it does little more than "thrown dances
and then police them. The role of the dental student to that Council for the past few
years has done much to further favorable relations between the dental students and the
students of other schools of the University and in this respect its work has been admirable.
The Student Council of the School of Dentistry consists of three representatives
from each class, with Dr. Rinehart as chairman and advisor the problems and activi-
ties of the dental student are handled. The fact that the problems of the dental student
are few, excluding the scholastic, make the duties of this Council relatively simple.

HIS section on Curriculum is a new addition to the Bush-
Whacker. It has been included with the hope that it will serve
to recall pleasant memories of days of study, to demonstrate the
advancing strides of our Alma Mater, and, when further progress
is made, to appreciate it by recalling how things "used to be."
Since our courses of study include everything from jurispru-
dence to obstetrics it has been impossible to include the entire
curriculum, however, we have included some of the most impor-
tant ones. We regret to mention that several of the important
departments have been omitted, but only for reasons beyond our
It is hoped that in future Bushwhackers this section may be
enlarged to include every department and class of the School of
Dentistry and that it may have the privilege of reflecting as much
improvement and progress as has been noted here.
DENTISTRY is the art, science and profession concerned with the
prevention and treatment of diseases of the teeth and adjacent structures.
It is an art and a science in the truest sense of the Words and a profession
Whose progress and advancement has been unequaled in its short life-span
of little more than a century.
American dentistry and American dental education lead the World.
Their standards and achievements are Without parallel and thus it is that
America, its public and its fighting forces, are provided the best that
modern science can give.
The training of the dentist is no simple task. The dentist must be
educated of mind and skilled of hand to be proficient at his profession.
He must be an artist and a sculptor, a physicist and a mechanic, a pathol-
ogist and a diagnostician. Possibly it is for these reasons that the laborers
in the vineyard are too few, these reasons plus the fact that to the layman
dentistry holds no glamor. It is difficult to glamorize dentistry-after
college, four years more of study and sweat with microscope and hand-
piece seems like too long a time to devote to a profession Where one stands
by a chair for eight hours a day. It is only after one gets deep enough into
this field to Witness the good that he has wrought and appreciate its
contribution to society that it becomes glamorous.
Dentistry is dedicated to the betterment of mankind. Its sole pur-
pose for existence is to make the World a healthier and thus happier place
in which to live by the alleviation of human suffering, pain, sickness and
disease. Wfith a constant continuation in the present path of advance-
ment the ultimate goal may be seen across the horizon.

In the years gone by
the general practitioner,
due to lack of knowl-
edge, has had only me-
chanical treatment at his
disposal. He upluggedn
a cavity, removed a
pulp, or possibly only
opened into a canal and
placed a "peg" crown
or he "pulled" the tooth
and replaced it with
what seemed the most
practical. Qften the
technical procedure cre-
ated more disease than
It has taken many
years for dentistry to
evolve from a solely me-
chanical pursuit to a sci-
entific branch of the
healing art, and become
interested in the etiology
and pathology of disease
as a basis of diagnosis
and treatment planning.
That this has been ac-
complished is evidenced
by the .tremendous ad-
vances in preventative
measures and the in-
creased stress in dental
education on histology,
and diagnosis. It is real-
ized that without a thor-
ough knowledge and
understanding of these
sciences Qperative Den-
tistry cannot be prop-

Since the O erative hase is of so
great importance it is only natural
l that the Department of Qperative
Dentistry has improved and advanced
to such an extent that it can now
boast one of the largest clinics in the
entire country. A true record of
progress is reflected in the fact that
the humble start with four units has
grown to a completely modern clinic
now housing more than one hundred
and twenty-five chairs, staffed by
men of experience high in their pro-
fession and under the capable direc-
tion of Dr. Carl W. Sawyer.
The clinic of the School of Den-
tistry enables the dental student to
obtain the practical experience essen-
tial to his training. It has provided
patients with dental service at a min-
imum expenditure for well over sixty
continuous years. With the coopera-
tion of the Health Department of the
Public School System of Kansas City,
it likewise provides dental care and
treatment for the public school chil-
dren and carries on a program of lay
The Lowry Clinic, under the direc-
tion of Dr. Lester M. Gates and adja-
cent to the main clinic, was estab-
lished and endowed by the late Dr.
Howard S. Lowry to provide dental
treatment for the needy children of
the city. Daily, children from schools
all over Kansas City and the sur-
rounding area are brought in the care
of nurses to the clinic for treatment.
Uperative Dentistry, with the
means and methods now available,
can conserve the natural teeth of all
persons throughout life provided the
care of the individual is begun early
and there exists reasonable coopera-
tion between dentist and patient. The
day may not be far distant when those
who have their own interest at heart
may go through life without ever
experiencing the ravages of caries.
Such is the progress of Dentistry.

Appointments to this department
are given to students chosen every
year who devote much time to this
subject. Hundreds of children,
crushed by the ruthless heel of clen-
tal deformity, have had new hopes
inftilled into their lives through the
efforts of students and instructors
of this department. Wfith an active
roll of 150 patients, many traveling
over a hundred miles, the Crtho-
dontia department of the university
devotes four mornings Z1 Week to the
art of treating malocclusion.

It is the Work of the diagnostician to determine
by examination the nature of a diseased condition.
Up to the present, it has remained essentially an
art. It has depended for its success not upon train-
ing alone but upon the acuity of the diagnostician.
For years, dentistry has been laboring under a
tradition of mechanical endeavor and has developed
that phase of its work to a high degree. The den-
tist thought in terms of "what to do" instead of
"What was wrongf' The change from that era
has been rapid and the fostering of a closer alliance
among the various professions concerned With
health service has greatly changed the perspective
of the dental practitioner.
It is the purpose of the University of Kansas
City, School of Dentistry, to give the student
training in fields allied With, even though not
appertaining to, the science of dentistry. A large
portion of the curriculum is devoted, not only
to clinical examination and radiology, but also to
laboratory examinations of blood, saliva, urine,
et al, and the value of these in diagnosing obscure
oral conditions. It is through the application of
biological principles rather than through mechan-
ical instrumentation that a truer meaning of the
Word t'Diagnosis', has come to be.
Bacteriology is that branch of botany which
deals with the practical aspects of bacteria and
their important relationships with dentistry, medi-
cine, hygiene, and agriculture. Although the den-
tal student's prime interest is in the oral flora,
his study does not end there but goes on to include
all pathogens. With the information thus gained
he is well equipped to fight disease with knowledge.
The Department of Bacteriology has been fos-
tered and nurtured since birth by Dr. Edward L.
Stewart, who during over thirty years of teaching
at our school, has earned the admiration and re-
spect of all. By his guidance, this department has
grown by leaps and bounds and now not only
includes a thorough study of bacteriology but also
many of the allied subjects-immunology, para-
sitology, et al.
The constant adding of new curriculum of a
physiological and biological nature shows den-
tistry's trend toward preventing or healing rather
than restoring. That this is being accomplished
without neglect or a decrease in the standards of
the mechanical phases of dentistry is indeed worthy
of praise. -

The right to dissect the human body has been
won with difficulty after centuries of struggle
against prejudice of the unenlightened. The older
anatomist was frequently confronted with the
necessity of secrecy and stealth, if he were so for-
tunate to procure a body at all. Even then, his
work had to be done hurriedly because of the
rapidity of decay. The stench of the cadaver:, as
they lay on their slabs entrenched with maggots,
has given away in the last few years to sanitary,
individual, modern tanks filled with preserving
liquid. The ballad of the dissecting student of a
few years ago, "the worms crawl in, the worms
crawl out, the worms crawl in and out of the
mouth" is now but a memory.
The anatomy student of today, although still
inclined towardlhis never ending pranks as insert-
ing human livers of the cadaver unnoticed into
his fellow students' pockets, seriously realizes that
the knowledge of anatomy does not of necessity
make a diagnostician but the lack of such knowl-
edge is a fatal shortcoming.

a critical and observing individual.
The dental surgeon of a few decades
ago, with his clumsy forceps and
surgical instruments had as his pur-
pose the removal of the tooth as the
answer to any dental difficulties.
Since then oral surgery has made
tremendous strides. Men graduating
from 'dental school today with a
thorough knowledge of pathology,
anatomy, and surgery, no longer
relegate to nature the problem of
correcting the damage to a tooth
incidental to ' its removal. They
realize that the art of healing, with
reference to dental disease, their
causes, nature, progress, cf al, forms
no small part in their practice of the
specialty of dental oral surgery.
The department of Surgery, Uni-
versity of Kansas City School of Den-
tistry, is under the capable supervision of
Dr. Melvin Morrow, a postgraduate of
the famed Mayo Clinic. Appointments
are given to five outstanding students
each semester. The principles of oral sur-
gery are infiltrated into these students
who spend 95 per cent of each day re-
galing in blood, tumors and impactions.
Monotony is unknown to the student of
oral surgery, every case is a different one.
Examination, diagnosis, and method of
procedure tries his ingenuity. Every stu-
dent is given free access to the surgery
department and his dream of the romance
of surgery is fulfilled when he is allowed
to witness major operations by renowned
surgeons at the University ofKansas and
In no other dental school in the United
States are there so many opportunities
for the student of oral surgery as in the
University of Kansas City. It is here that
he can actually see how extensive the field
of surgery has become. It is here that he
fully realizes that no one person, how-
ever learned, can attempt to deal with
the whole field, and for this reason oral
surgery as a specialty is justified.

The Crown and Bridge department of
the University of Kansas City School of
Dentistry strives for prosthetic perfection
under the clinical supervision of Dr. K.
Rudd, the theoretical supervision of Dr.
L. Carr, and the laboratory guidance of
Dr. E. Conover. Broad foundations are
laid in the essentials of physics, pathology,
physiology, and anatomy before the study
of Crown and Bridge is ever endeavored.
Thereare two appointments given each
year to two outstanding seniors interested
in this field.
Through four years of training, and
by meeting the rigorous requirements of
the staff of this department the student
is thoroughly capable of handling the
Crown and Bridge problems of his pa-
tients. Actual experience in fixed and
removable bridge work give the student
the necessary training. After completing
all the practical and theoretical require-
ments, in the senior year the student must
completely construct a perfect two-tooth
bridge in the required time of four hours
to be eligible for graduation. lt is real-

minds are necessary to success in this field

modern science and art of dental prosthesis enable the
individual, unfortunate in losing his natural dentition,
to continue his life in the business and social World un-
hampered by tooth consciousness.
The Department of Prosthetics of the School of Den-
tistry, realizing the importance of this phase and realiz-
ing the practice and study necessary to become proficient
in the art, provide demonstration and lectures on the
practical as Well as the theoretical aspects of the subject
through every semester for four years. The results of
untiring efforts are reflected in the many words of praise
from satisfied patients who visit the clinic daily.
With the department under the guiding hands of such
notable prosthedontists as Chastain G. Porter and Day-
ton Dunbar Campbell the success of the students with
a desire to learn is assured. Two senior appointments are
given each semester to the outstanding men of the class
who are interested in this field.
As in practically every depart-
ment of the School of Dentistry
research is constantly going on.
The prosthetic department has
devoted much time to the testing
of the density, color harmony and
tissue compatibility of most of
the better brands of the methyl
methacrylates. And in an effort
to find a method whereby this
material may be processed with-
out creating stresses and strains
many startling facts have come
Advancement and progress can-
not continue Without research and
this department has definite in-
tentions of progressing even more
in the future than it has in the
past. If it is able to accomplish
this, and We are sure that it Will,
there is no reason Why it should
not continue as the outstanding
department of full denture pros-
thesis in the entire middle West.
Monuments and treasures of art
have their valueg but While the
sculptor may by his trained eye
and hand mold a likeness to the
human form the 'prosthesist is
privileged to mold the human face
and living tissue and demand that
nature herself respond to his touch

paratus. Little elementary chemistry,
as quantitative, qualitative or organic,
is taught since such courses are pre-
requisites and have been studied in the
students' predental college work.
The Chemistry Department occu-
pies the entire west end of the third
floor and includes a large, fully-
equipped, well-lighted, modern, venti-
lated general laboratory, as Well as a
supply room, the library and study of
Dr. Huntington and a large display of
Accepted Dental Remedies and other
materials used in the practice and
research of dentistry. In addition to
these facilities the entire Chemistry
department of the University is at
the disposal of the student for added
work or research.
Dentistry,s increased interest, dur-
ing the last quarter century, in rational
therapeutics has brought about neces-
sary expansion in the department of
Chemistry. Study in this department
gives the student a basis firm in the
time-tested means for compounding
medication precisely for the needs of
the individual patient.

The increased interest in re-
search has been due to the
realization that Without re-
search progress ceases and
that it is of vital importance
to the progress of Dentistry.
The progress of Dentistry
and thus the progress of man-
kind is our ultimate goal.
The need for constant den-
tal research is an obvious
necessity. Realizing this, the
School of Dentistry, Univer-
sity of Kansas City fulfilled
one of its long-held ambitions
on August 1, 1942, when a
research laboratory was or-
ganized and ofhcially opened.
Dr. L. L. Eisenbrandt was
chosen as the director of re-
search to conduct and corre-
late the Work. Together with
his research assistant, Gene-
vieve Roth, Dr. Eisenbrandt
is expanding new fields in .his
research on the Lactobicilli,
its relation to pH and caries,
on acidity of saliva, and on
topical applications of Sodi-
um Fluoride in caries preven-
tion. Using the finest appa-
ratus obtainable, including
the electrometer and the glass
electrode, the Work of the re-
search department will not
slack until the dawn of a
caries free posterity is real-

HE following pages are devoted to your classmates. It is
not unlikely that many of the men pictured here will, in the
coming decades, rise to great heights-as professional gentlemen,
and as humanitarians. This presumption is based on the illus-
trious record of past alumni.
The accelerated program deprived the Class of September,
1943, from having their own Bushwhacker. It is for that reason
that the present edition is presented to both senior classes, and
will be immediately posted, to the former, in whatevercorner
of the globe they may be now serving.
The friendly and informal student body relationship which
produces that "Howdy lad" attitude makes naming the students
pictured unnecessary. However, names have been included lest
in the years to come we forget. It is hoped that such a condition
will not arise and that we may all maintain contact through
professional and alumni channels.
The monotony of the alphabetical listings which has followed
us for years through school and now in military service has been
intentionally omitted. However, on page 191 will be found a
student index listing all students by classes in reverse alphabeti1

HEN our class first entered dental school America was at peace with all other
nations. This was the last class to enter school under those conditions. Now, as we
are about to emerge from our institution as graduated Doctors of Dental Surgery, wars
rage in practically all other continents and on the high seas. While war continues, and
the arming of our own country goes rapidly on, the role of our class becomes a matter
of increased interest and speculation among the members. We wonder, is our prepared-
ness along these important lines equal to what is required and expected of us who, along
with physicians, comprise the chief forces of the healing art? There are many large
shoes to be filled competently by our class, there are additional responsibilities to be
met, unknown under normal conditions, there is the necessary replacing of those who
have had to go, make changes and sacrifices, there is war with its attendant hardships
and duties for our country-also the dreaded possibility that dental careers will abruptly
end. As in World War I, this side of the picture is not pleasant-but it is real.
We consider ourselves lucky that we are not among the millions worrying about
the post-war era for jobs. It is true that it will not be for this senior class to enjoy the
current fruits of a wartime boom, but we know that we are not a wildcat profession
resulting from the feverish activity of war, for our members look upon our work as a
life time career. When the question arises among our ranks, "What will become of our
profession after the war?", we look no further for the answer than the Very reasons
why we selected dentistry as a career: it is on the upgrade as no other profession, or
field of endeavor is, it grows daily, and this growth will continue after the war. This
we know to be definite. U
In all countries the pass-word is preparedness. In this respect our class is no exception
where our future is concerned. Since Pearl Harbor we have been enjoying an immunity
allowed by a far-sighted government so that we could finish our course and become
valuable members of the armed forces. We hope and believe that we are now prepared
to face any eventuality that might occur during the call of duty for our country and

An integral part of a great university is its great tradition. At the University of
Kansas City, a comparatively young school, a tradition is beginning.
At the dental college, we have in the half century of our experience built a tradi-
tion of our own. A tradition that we gladly bring with us to the University. As a
college of dental education, we are one of the oldest. Men of outstanding achievement
and stature in the profession have been products of our school and our tradition. Names
of great repute: Rinehart, Dewey, Allshouse, Hollenback, Campbell, have come from
the dental college. -
Along with the serious traditions of the dental science, there also come the more
ceremonial-and yet to us Very dear-traditions. One of these is the signing of the
dental dijulmna by the Dean of the college. It is something of signal importance in the
dental world. It certifies a graduate's degree as nothing else can.
Unfortunately, the class of 1944 will not be allowed this privilege, due to certain
University rulings which are, we hope, soon to be abrogated. Nevertheless, it will be
every man's privilege to see Dean Rinehart and have him sign the certificate with
This opportunity, it goes without saying, will be accepted by every man of the
class of forty-four.
Our tradition goes on!

Feeling that it might of interest, for future reference, to have a few statistical facts
for recollection a bit of such data is recorded here.
The Class of September, 1943, was the second class to graduate that year due to
the accelerated program. Of the original 90 men who entered in the fall of '41 over
3029 were lost by the roadside in the four year journey toward the D.D.S. The fact
that 68 men were graduated was due to addition to the class by transfers, "holdovers"
and the like. Statistics such as these demonstrate the fact that there has been a definite
increase in Dentistryis standards in general and in our schools in particular.
There were in that class 38 fraternity men Q13 Psi 0.5 13 ZIP., 8 Delta Sig., 4
AGJ as compared with 30 independents. Of the 68 graduates 34 received Army Com-
missions while 21 went to the Navy as Lt. in the Dental Corps. The remaining
13 are either civilian faculty members, in private practice or doing post graduate work.
Nine men made Omicron Kappa Upsilon and five were elected to "Whois Who in Ameri-
can Colleges and Universitiesf' Approximately 35? of the class were married. The
word "approximately" is used since the figure is constantly fluctuating.
The Class of 1944 is the first class to complete their course of study under the
accelerated program, four years of dental education were accomplished in three study-
filled, vacationless years. It is interesting to note that S7 men entered as the freshmen
class in September of 1941 and now the class has a membership of S8 men in spite of
the fact that close to 18? have already been lost. The 1871 figure will probably rise
to near 30fZa by June 4, 1944.
There is over 4062 Q43.1'Z to be exactj of the class married, while three men
will take the fatal step almost before the ink here is dry. 20? of the class of 344 held
college degrees before enrollment and the average predental education is close to three
years 12.7 yrs.j.
There are 38 frat men QPsi O. 173 Delta Sig. 115 ZIP. 105, compared with 20
barbs. 30 men are in the Army, 21 in the Navy and there are 7 civilians. Seven men
made Omicron Kappa Upsilon and four were elected to "Who-is Who in American Col-
leges and Universities."
i We would say, judging from the figures above, that the average dental student
has close to three years predental education, 1 to S that he has a degree. 2 to 1 are
the odds that he'll join a fraternity and 2 to 3 that he'll be married by graduation time.
His chances of never graduating are 1 to 4 and there are 7 chances in 100 that if he
does graduate it will take him longer than 4 years. I-Ie stands 1 chance in 8 of becoming
an "honor man" and a bit less chance of making "Whois Who."
A few more gratifying figures follow however to give us a little "lift." Since we
cannot ignore the money angle without being downright hypocritical, these statistics
are comforting. The following quotations are from a report issued by John W. Stude-
baker, United States Commissioner of Education:
"In the years immediately following graduation, the best paying occupations were
dentistry, forestry and telephone work .... M '
Then, even more conclusively, we read further: "The best paying occupations for
college men eight years after graduation are dentistry, medicine, law, public office .... "
Need we go further?

Another year has passed and as we complete our
junior year we have laid one more stone upon the
foundation of our future
Little do we realize the advantages bestowed upon
us being allowed to continue the study of dentistry
under the direction of such well qualified dental
educators as are associated with our school. Under
the program set forth by the Army and Navy we
are being more carefully and rapidly trained to serve
our country in the most advantageous way during
this period of war and during the period of recon-
struction following the war.
We, the Junior class, will endeavor to put forth
a greater effort in preparing ourselves to meet the
demand placed upon us during this time of need to
bring about a speedy recovery and to maintain and
raise the already high standard of our profession.

The 1943-44 Freshman Class situated on the
Campus of the University of Kansas City have also
relinquished their rights as Civilians and become fu-
ture Officers of the Army and Navy. Including five
Civilians, who hold Reserve Officers Commissions,
the class totals one hundred and five members. The
pre-dental education of most of these men total
above entrance requirements and not too few hold
college degrees from well known universities and
colleges. This group of men also show excellent char-
acter and express sincere hospitality in becoming
homogenized with their university under-classmen
who are in close academic association.
The class has had several meetings during the past
school year, and have completed plans for definite
goals and affixing dues to the members. The treas-
urer now holds a nominal sum to be used in any
manner suitable to student demand.

Thus, the progress of a science-a mutable, protean thing. And with
the new changes wrought, new philosophies, ideas, of learning must be
accepted. The wild thrust of new ideas, though, should be as completely
avoided, as the interminable preservation of the status quo. There must
be a moderation. How often before this has been pleaded, and mocked
-yet it is the vitality of movement. The acceptance of acceptable
ideas by all.
How this applies to the dental science? In that it applies to all science
-the idea of advance-every jot of it applies to the dental science. In
the incipiency of any science, the methods are crude, primitive. This is
absolute, the initial start implies a beginning, and with this the struggling
towards new ideas, new knowledge, new truths, and with the- struggling,
crudeness and error. Yet this error only antecedes truth to come.
An open mindedness must prevail in the course of science, an under-
standing and trying of new method. Some old ideas must be placed in
abeyance, and some new functions of the science, with new idea, must
be placed at the fore. 'The relegation of certain new concepts to equal
importance with old concepts. Tn dental science the placing on equal
basis, the scientific as well as the technical knowledge. Both of these
functions are of cardinal importance-as ridiculous to permit fools, as
technical blunderersg as important a man with a basis firm in classic
science, as a man with a basis firm in technical ability.
iThis is not shocking. 'With thought it is a very reasonable idea, and
the acceptance of this idea-new, good idea-will bring with it advance.
Vistas for "star-eyed science" that allows the realization of now incon-
ceivable dreams . . .

HE three leading dental professional fraternities, as Well as
the Phi Beta Kappa of Dentistry, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, are
Well represented by long established chapters on the campus. They
work together in harmony and act as the hub about which most
of the extracurricular social and professional life evolve.
Although the fraternity is not a necessity in a dental education
the friendships and brotherhood thus established with men of like
desires and ambitions are a lifelong joy. That the active men in
Dentistry are fraternity men cannot be denied.
Dental fraternities are founded primarily for the advancement
of the profession. They cultivate the social qualities of .their mem-
bers and surround them with men to Whom they may turn for
assistance and advice. They assist their members, in all their laud-
able undertakings and bring about a greater appreciation and
love of Alma Mater.

Gillli-,HE greatness of a fraternity lies in the achievements of her brothers. Thus it is
with a great deal of pride that Psi Omega men look upon the history of their fraternity.
During the past, in the present, locally and nationally, Psi Omega is, without doubt,
the outstanding dental professional fraternity. This is not mere "rush" talk but rather
a reality based upon fact. Let us take a look at the records, therein lies the story.
Psi Omega, founded in 1892 at the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, is the
youngest, by a few years, of all dental fraternities, yet it is the largest with 36 active
and 61 alumni chapters. Since 1920 thirteen presidents of, the American Dental Associa-
tion have been Psi Omegas. Every president for the past five years successively, includ-
ing president-elect, have been Psi O's. In the present administration, it is interesting to
note, not only the president but also the vice-president and treasurer are brothers in
Psi Omega. The highest ranking dental officer of the U. S. Navy, the head of the
Navy Dental Corps QRear Adm. Alexander Lylej , the head of the Army Dental Corps
QBrig. Gen. Robert H. Millsj, and Chief Dental Officer, Medical Division, Selective
Service CCapt. C. Raymond Wells, USNJ, all these men are Psi Omegas. Turning to
the scholastic side we find the president of the American College of Dentists CH. C.
Fixottj and thirteen deans of dental schools are of this same fraternity. Space does not
permit the listing of the presidents of state associations or presidents of the state boards
of dental examiners, et al.
The Phi Rho Chapter was formed by the union, in 1920, of the Delta Rho Chap-
ter f'10j of the Kansas City Dental College and the Delta Phi Chapter Q'12j of the
Western Dental College. Wfith a glorious and achievement studded history we arrive
at the present. We find that among the ranks of Psi Omega are the Director of the
Clinic, the Director of the Operative Dentistry Department, the head of the Prosthetic
Department, Director of the Department of Radiodontia, head of Surgery Department,
ad infinitum. Among the students we find the president and vice-president of the
Student Council as well as six of nine representatives from the School of Dentistry.
Of 16 honor men COmicron Kappa Upsilonj of '43-,44, 6 are Psi Omega, and of a
total of 9 men to be elected to "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities"
C'44j 4 were Psi O,s. It is plain to see, even with these few facts, that the outstanding
dental professional fraternity is PSI OMEGA, outstanding on the campus, outstanding
in the nation. .

The Interfraternity Council is the governing body for the fraternities of the
School of Dentistry. It is composed of the presidents and deputy counselors of the
three fraternal groups with the Dean as chairman.
The purpose of this Council is to arbitrate any difliculties which may possibly
arise between the fraternities, to decide on matters of rushing, social activities and
in general handle all problems facing these organizations.
With the harmonious relations now existing between all fraternal groups the
Work of the Council is nil but it is through the efforts of the Interfraternity Council,
formally or informally, that such pleasant relations do exist. The progress of the
fraternities on the campus Witness the fact that the Council has been active.

HE features section, as is usually the case, is the "catch all"
of any annual. It is no exception here. It is hoped that this sec-
tion, informal for the most part, will tend to recall pleasant
memories of the more carefree moments of your dental school
days. In spite of the fact that the 1944 BUSHWHACKER is
almost twice the size of any previous edition, there was not suf-
ficient space for all that we would have liked to include. Through
the kindness and courtesy of Burger-Baird, engravers, and Chas.
VE. Brown Ptg. Co., printers, who relinquished their advertising
space, We are able to present some additional material which
arrived a little late-cartoons by the '45 editor and candid
"shots" of the Senior picnic.

, One year ago, upon the activation of the 4761st Service Unit, one of many units
in the Army Specialized Training Program, the UGREETINGSM expressed by the Faculty
and members of the School of Dentistry meant keen interest and cooperation in the
activities to follow. No one realized the host of problems that would be forthcoming.
What seemed to be a simple change from mufti to olive drab assumed larger proportions.
Problems in administration, in supply, of discipline: and greatest of all, the change
from Q'Mister" to "Private."
The majority of Army students assigned had started their professional careers as
"Mister." They were "Privates', only by courtesy. Inducted and assigned without
benefit of formal military training they were expected, by some, to spring forth as did
the dragon's Teeth of ancient myth.
No one knew better than the "Privates', their ignorance of things military. But
through their own desire and willingness to be .SOLDIERS as well as Doctors of Dental
Surgery they stand today Officers and Gentlemen. The Program conceived to train
men to be Officers as well as Professional. men was formed to succeed. That it has suc-
ceeded is now evident.
As Commandant, I have enjoyed a unique position in the School. An outsider, a
stranger, to the profession of Dentistry, I have committed probably many sins of
omission and commission. That they were not too serious errors is due in great measure
tc- the forbearance and faith of the Staff and Faculty. I wish to express my sincere
thanks for that warm "GREETINGS.',

HIS issue of the Bushwhacker finds a revolutionary change in the personnel of the
school. The Army has made it possible for students to continue their training as dentists
while members of the military service, through specialized training programs carried on
at government cost. The Army Specialized Training Program was organized by the
War Department in collaboration with civilian educators. General George C. Marshall,
Chief of Staff, United States Army, in explaining the objective of the ASTP, stated:
"The Army has been increasingly handicapped by a shortage of men possessing
desirable combinations of intelligence, aptitude, education, and training in fields such
as medicine, dentistry, engineering, languages, science, mathematics, and psychology,
who are qualified for service as officers of the Army. With the establishment of the
minimum Selective Service age of 18, the Army Was compelled to assure itself that
there would be no interruption in the flow of professionally and technically trained men
Who have hitherto been provided in regular increments by American colleges and
Lt. General Lesley J. McNair, Commanding General of the Army Ground Forces,
emphasizing the importance of trained leadership, stated:
"The speed of modern warfare demands leadership that can accelerate our opera-
tions by rapidity of thought and by the application of the most expeditious means
known to modern science. Intelligent men who have been trained to think and Who
can apply scientific knowledge to the everyday problems in combat are urgently needed
in the leadership of our combat units."
The School of Dentistry entered into agreement with the government for the
establishment of an army unit to train highly selected men in the field of dentistry.

This unit was activated the second of July, 1943, with the initial assignment of those
students who were already matriculating at the school. Headquarters was established
with the assignment of Staff Sergeant Charlie Atkerson the twenty-eighth of June.
Second Lieutenant Justin I. Siegel was the next to join, arriving the eighth of July.
Captain Lawrence K. McKinney, assigned as Commandant, joined the fifteenth of July,
followed in quick succession by Staff Sergeant Eugene P. Williamsoin, Technician Sth
Grade Joseph E. Duer and Private Henry Gartenberg.
Since the primary purpose of the program is to train men in the profession of
dentistry, the military training program does not follow the usual lines of similar
schools. Military training is restricted to approximately five hours a week and consists
mainly of classroom work. A total of thirty-five subjects in the military field is pre-
sented. There is no early reveille, calisthenics, field marches, kitchen police, guard duty
or other duties commonly associated with the Army. Every effort is bent toward cre-
ating superior professional men who will be acquainted with all phases of the Medical
department of the Army-who will, without further training, be able to step into uni-
form and perform the duties of army dentists without major psychological adjustment.
Since the government pays all tuition charges, provides instruments and books, uniforms,
medical and dental care, allotments for dependents and other material benefits, the
student is left free to assimilate in the fullest measure his professional studies.
We are all looking forward to June, at which time we will have our first gradua-
tion ceremony and the first concrete evidence that the program is accomplishing its
mission: the training of officers who are to be dentists in the Army of the United States.
The commandant wishes to express his thanks for the hearty cooperation of the
staff and faculty of the School of Dentistry and their patience and willingness to
explain those problems which are peculiar to the profession.

IFTY DIVISIONS or approximately 750,000
men have been rehabilitated and made available
for military duty through the work of the Army
Due to the efforts of the dental corps these
fifty divisions have made America's military
punch far more effective in the far-flung battle
zones and given the American soldiers far better
oral conditions than all other armies in the field.
When the history of America,s role in World
War II is written, the part played by the dental
profession in the Army shall have earned the
Nation's gratitude, not only in helping to win
the war but in promoting good health through
dental hygiene in the post-war years.
Upon looking at the results achieved after two
years at war:
Since Pearl Harbor, the Army Dental Corps
has constructed and inserted over 1,050,000 den-
tures. More than 25,000,000 fillings have been
made by the Dental Corps, in addition to 2,600,000
prophylactic and pyorethic treatments given.
Thousands of soldiers have had teeth extracted
and infections removed. The corps averages 94,000
dental appointments every day. Those 750,000
men inducted under the Selective Service Act did
not have teeth good enough to masticate Army
food. Dentists brought them up to par.
There is nothing glamorous about a dentist's
chair, yet generals in charge of combat divisions
know that the Army Dental Corps has vindicated
in striking manner Napoleon's maxim that an
army moves on its stomach. It takes good teeth
to chew and digest field rations in a combat zone.
The work of the Dental Corps under the leader-
ship of Maj. Gen. Robert H. Mills, director of the
dental division, Office of the Surgeon General of
the Army, has been no less beneficial even if it
has not been shouted from the housetops.
The minimum dental requirements in the last
war were that each prospective soldier must have
at least three posterior or masticating teeth, as
well as three anterior or incisor teeth. When the
present war began these requirements were modi-
fied simply becauie too many men were ineligible
due to teeth deficiencies.
In 1941 and early 1942, 8.8 per cent of all men
inducted under selective service were released be-
cause of poor teeth. Since October, 1942, rejec-
tions have been reduced to one man per thousand
At present no soldier can go overseas or to a
port of debarkation until he is cleared by his dental
officer at his home station. This means that all
of his emergency work has been taken care of,
he is, in fact a healthy soldier, since good teeth is
one of the prime requisites of a healthy body.
Men are inducted into the Army who have had
little, if any, daily familiarity with a toothbrush.
America's soldier is not only given a toothbrush,
he is told how to put it to good use. Once his
deficiencies have been corrected, he takes pride in
keeping his teeth in good condition.
G. I. Joe boards a transport and reaches a war
zone, there he notes the role of an Army dentist
overseas. Dentists are to be found on hospital
ships, on transports, among ski and parachute
units, in short, with every tactical unit in combat
zones. Overseas, the overall picture finds one
dental officer to every 850 men, compared with
one to more than 1,000 men in the last war.
Auxiliary surgical groups are doing a great work
overseas. Each group has four maxilo-facial teams,
consisting of a dental officer, a medical officer,
two nurses, and two technicians for each service
team. They are available for service anywhere.
They are frequently utilized at surgical, evacua-
tion, convalescent, field and general hospitals to
supplement the surgical service at stations where
normal personnel cannot meet the demands of
The soldier in war zones knows the value of his
dentist. Millions of these boys are coming home
after the war to marry, raise children, and take
their place in community and national life. The
Army's insistence on good teeth will leave benefits
of permanent value. To them a dentist will be a
real friend, instead of one whose name is asso-
ciated with unpleasant memories.

HE NAVY V12 Program went into operation in more than 200 colleges and
universities of the nation on July 1, 1943, when approximately 80,000 men especially
selected as officer candidates were placed on active duty to continue their education.
This program has been set up to provide a continuing supply of officer candidates
in the various special fields required by the U. S. Navy. A
The present Navy V12 Student Body consists largely of men who were already in
college in an inactive reserve status. The remainder have entered the program directly
from civilian life or were drawn from the enlisted personnel of the Navy. Future
candidates will be selected high school graduates or others of satisfactory educational
qualifications, whose mental, physical and potential officer qualifications are established
by appropriate examinations.
The educational training is carried on while the men are on active duty in uniform,
receiving pay, and under general military discipline. However, it is basically a college
program. Its primary purpose is to give prospective naval officers the benefits of a
college education, and insofar as possible the normal pattern of college life has been
The University of Kansas City, School of Dentistry was selected as one of the
original group of 200 colleges and universities, and the Navy V-12 Program began
operation here on July 1, 1943.
The Navy V-12 Dental Students are rated as apprentice seamen in the U. S. Naval
Reserve and receive base pay of 5550.00 per month. As there are no quarters or messing
facilities they are also paid a subsistence allowance of 3591.5 0 per month. In addition
they receive the regular servicemen's dependents allowances and other benefits which
accrue to any apprentice seaman on active duty.
While dental students are in fact apprentice seamen they are uniformed as Mid-
shipmen of the dental corps. Uniforms are furnished by the Navy and are similar to
that of a midshipman of the line but with a distinguishing insignia consisting of a
fouled anchor crossed at 45 degrees by the dental corps device.
Upon the successful completion of his dental education which now consists of eight,
sixteen-week semesters, the student receives his degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery,
and is commissioned Lieutenant Qjunior Gradej in the Dental Corps of the U. S. Naval
Lt. Commander, USNR.

HE EsTABL1sHED position of dentistry as a
separately organized division of health service has,
periodically for many years, been brought into
question by some who are persuaded that dental
science and art should be made an accredited
specialty of medicine in order. to adjust it to its
natural medical-dental relationship. In the many
attempts that have been made to alter the present
plan of dental education and the many suggestions
that have been offered for its improvement, there
has been the ever recurring insistence that dental
education should be restored to its alleged original
place in the scheme of medical education.
The assumption that the dental art was at one
time an integral part of the medical art is the
basis upon which rest the chief arguments for the
subordination of dental education to medical edu-
cation. This allegation deserves serious and care-
ful study in order to determine the truth of the
assumption that dentistry is the "errant child" of
medicine. Changes contemplated in the accepted
traditional plan of dental education should not be
posed on the mere assumption that dentistry is
an outcast from the family of medical specialties,
but such changes as are desirable should be planned
in conformity with the truth and the fundamental
principles that history and logic reveal as basic in
dental education's beginnings and growth. The
incidents related to dentistry's alleged prodigal
departure from medicine on the one hand, and the
verities that aiiirmatively motivated the establish-
ment of autonomous dental education on the other,
may be determined by a careful and earnest study
of the facts of dental history. In order to under-
stand the true causes of the present medico-dental
relationship and the forces that have operated to
bring it to its present state, it is necessary to study
the beginning of institutional dental education and
to become acquainted with the factors that ini-
tiated its separation from medicine, directed its
independent growth, and fashioned its autonomous
There .are a number of assumptions with respect
to dental education's beginnings and growth that
have gained such currency as to influence unfa-
vorably a true interpretation of its philosophy.
These assumptions have prepared the way for the

effectiveness of the many attacks that have been
made on the established plan of dental education
by those who have presumed to substitute artificial
forms for natural conditions. Because the alleged
circumstances of dental education's beginnings are
accepted as an indictment of its autonomy, it has
been rendered vulnerable to attack and has become
an open target for' those whose zeal to improve
dental education has caused them to violate fla-
grantly its autonomous plan. Many of the funda-
mental principles of dental education have been
distorted and complicated by those who have ac-
cepted assumptions as facts and who have tried to
effect change in form without realizing that their
efforts would result in change of substance.
lt is my purpose at this time to discuss briefly
some of these traditional assumptions in order that
we may understand them better, that we may place
on them a proper value when they are advanced
as reasons for action in planning for the future of
our profession, and that all of us through a clearer
understanding of the philosophy of dentistry can
better prescribe for its improvement.
The most damaging of all these errors is the
belief that dental education assumed an independ-
ent relationship to medical education in "1839"
after a request had been made to the University
of Maryland, School of Medicine, for the inclusion
of dentistry in the medical curriculum. It is said
that the request was rejected on the ground that
the medical faculty regarded the subject of den-
tistry as of so little consequence that it did not
justify such high consideration. The profession's
willing belief in the validity of this alleged incident
has been the most damaging factor with which
dentistry has had to contend in its effort to ration-
alize its educational procedures. It is the general
opinion among the profession that dentistry was
refused a place in the scheme of medical education
and as a consequence it set up its autonomous
form of education, thus severing itself from its
traditional medical relationships. There have been
constantly recurring efforts since 1840 to "re-
store" dentistry to its so-called rightful place in
the medical curriculum, but in all such actions
rarely has any one attempted to understand the
validity of the existing medico-dental relationship
or to demonstrate the Verity of dentistry's anat-
omy. Dental leaders have, in season and out, made
pointless use of the derogatory statement that
dentistry was spurned by medicine because the

UCH midnight oil has been consumed in the
preparation of this volume-the largest and, it is hoped,
the finest BUSHWHACKER to date. Although the task has
been pleasant it has not been light. Without the budget-
balancing genius of Robert Orr and the tireless photo-
graphic efforts of Milo Stucky your book might not have
been. This year's business manager has doubled the adver-
tising income of any previous edition and thus provided
the "WhereWithal" and the potential for a doubly fine
publication. The photographic skill and artistic design of
our cameraman manifests itself on almost every page and
his Work speaks his praise. "JCM Schulte and "Jack" Lyons
played the roles of assistant photographer and assistant
photographer respectively. The engravings were made by
Burger-Baird, Who for over half a century have produced
fine annuals. The printing was done by the Charles E.
Brown Company. A vote of thanks is extended to both
firms for their constant help and cooperation.
A labor of this proportion cannot be undertaken and
brought to a successful conclusion by three men alone.
The nature of an annual, it being for many, must, of neces-
sity, be by many. It would be impossible to list here all
those Whose cooperation and assistance has made the 1944
BUSHWHACKER a reality. Suffice to say, "Sincere thanks,
one and all."
Many of the problems facing the staff have been peculiar
to this issue, it actually being a ,43-44.book, rather than
the BUSHXVHACKER of 1944. An effort has been made to
include as much data as possible concerning the class of 343
since it should have been their book. The class of '44 has
been included to bring the BUSHWI-IACKER back on to the
schedule from which it was thrown by the acceleration
It is only now, as the curtain of "deadline" falls, that a
familiarity of the "ropes', has been obtained and a realiza-
tion of "what might have been" is faced. A consideration
of these many influences in your final judgment of the
Work will be greatly appreciated.
It is felt that with experience as a basis for suggestion
some of the pitfalls of 1944 may be avoided in the future
by advice from the past. Thus, in the form of C0l7SlL1'ZlC'fiU6

1. That the staff be increased. No annual of comparable
size in the entire country is staffed by so few. QThe 1938
BUSHXVHACKER staff consisted of seven men.j
2. That a faculty advisor be included. The need is
obvious. Assistance must be given a new staff by someone
with past experience so that the same or similar errors do
not occur annually.
3. That the BUSHWHACKER be published by the junior
class in the junior year, as in the past. Time, especially in
the last lap of a professional education, is too valuable.
4. That pictures of all important functions-scholastic,
social or professional, be taken. fNever has a BUSHWHAQKER
included a picture of graduationj
5. That someone, possibly a member of the new staff, be
appointed to care of all material pertaining to the previous
book. Plates Cphotograved plates, not denturesj and photo-
graphs are expensive. Their care would save time and
money. In the past actually hundreds of dollars worth of
plates and pictures have been lost due to a lack of organiza-
tion or carelessness. CThe photo-engraved plates for the 1944
BUSHWHACKER cost close to 2000 dollars.J
If it is possible for each staff to prepare its fol-
lowers for the rocky road that lies ahead the path
will soon become broad and smooth. The end
result will be bigger and better BUSHWHACKERS
with a decrease in the time, energy and money
It has been the desire of the present staff to
present an annual which is alive, interesting and
different-something to be enjoyed now and in
the future. No material has been included which
could be considered risque to the stag reader for
whom it was primarily intended. An effort has
been made to present a volume in keeping with
the professional dignity and tradition of our

subject was of little consequence: and commen-
tators have written countless discussions of a better
dental educational program posed on the assump-
tion that this fallacious incident actually occurred.
The charge that dentistry was spurned by medi-
cine because "the subject of dentistry was of little
consequence and thus justified their unfavorable
actionv has been carefully studied. A great deal
of time was devoted to the attempt to discover
the truth or error of this allegation. This investi-
gation has revealed that the assumption is com-
pletely false. It has been satisfactorily demon-
strated that a request for a place for dentistry in
the University of Maryland, School of Medicine,
was never made: therefore no rejection of it was
possible. The beginning' and the growth of the
allegation have been carefully traced to determine
how the derogatory statement gained currency and
how it came to occupy such an important place
in our thinking: then a study of incidents at the
time of the founding of the College was made for
the purposes of corroborating conclusions reached
in the first study. Let us review briefly this study.
The germ of the legend that dentistry was re-
jected by medicine was contained in 1860 in a
eulogy delivered by James Taylor upon the death
of Chapin Harris. Taylor included in his remarks
a reference to the unfavorable attitude of the Uni-
versity of Maryland toward dentistry that appar-
ently was meant to add emphasis to the unusual
difficulties which were said to have confronted
Harris in his endeavors to advance dentistry
through the founding of the Co-llege. Taylor said:
It appears that in the early establishment of the Baltimore
School, Dr. Harris met with some of the opposition which
such enterprises are generally doomed to encounter. Many
of the profession either opposed, or rendered no aid: and the
medical department of the University of Maryland opposed
This chance remark, which suggested that the
University of Maryland, School of Medicine, did
not favor a dental school was later used with due
enlargement in a controversy between Dean Win-
der of the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery
and Dean Gorgas of the Dental School, University
of Maryland, after the latter had taken unan-
nounced leave of the Baltimore College and opened
in Baltimore, a rival dental school at the University
of Maryland. Winderis purpose appears to have
been to reflect upon Gorgas' connections. The
following version of the situation offered by Win-
der shows certain 'modifications of Taylor's re-
marks and was designed to indict the attitude of
the University of Maryland toward dental edu-

outcome of this refusal was the founding, in 1839 fsicil, of

the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, the first, and for
some time, the only dental college in the world.
This derogatory statement was noted by Cordell,
historian of the University of Maryland, who
pointed out that the Baltimore College of Dental
Surgery was founded as a separate college because
the University of Maryland repulsed a plea to
provide for dentistry in the medical curriculum.
Cordell, who was disposed to quote references,
stated in a footnote that he had seen somewhere
a reference to the incident but was not sure of
B. J. Cigrand took up the story at this point
and dressed it up in the complete form in which
it has since been used: .
In connection with this movement it was the ambition of
Dr. Harris to organize a dental school as an adjunct to the
medical department of the University of Maryland. The
practice of medicine at this time, however, being with few
exceptions at a very low ebb, the faculty of the university
rejected the proposition of Dr. Harris, they giving as an
excuse, "That the subject of dentistry was of little conse-
quence, and thus justified their unfavorable action."
From this time Q1893j on, dental writers have used
this derogatory statement to justify faults in den-
tal education by laying the blame for its alleged
shortcomings on medicine's rejection of it. It was
a sweet morsel in the cheeks of both friend and
foe of dentistry and was heralded with such effec-
tiveness that all the world came to believe the story
to be true. No one for half a century even thought
to investigate the evidence that might be offered
by those best qualified to testify to its validity,
namely, Hayden, Harris and Bond. Recently these
witnesses have been consulted and their testimony
effectively contradicts the "derogatory statement,"
and in addition, their evidence presents an entirely
different picture of the situation that is of sig-
nificant interest and value to the philosophy of
autonomous dental education.
Horace Hayden did not write on the subject,
but he offers effective silent testimony to the fact
that dentistry was looked upon with respect and
appreciation by the medical fraternity. As evi-
dence of the esteem in which Hayden, the leading
Baltimore dentist, was held, we point to the fact
that in March, 1840, the Medical School, Univer-
sity of Maryland, conferred on him an honorary
M.D. degree: it is well known that he had received
a similar degree from Jefferson Medical College of
Philadelphia in 1837. These honors are mute testi-
mony of the esteem in which the man, who began
the movement for institutional dental education
in America, was held by the Medical School that,
it is alleged, had disparaged efforts at dental edu-
Not only is there no conclusive evidence that
such a request was ever made of the University
of Maryland but there is instead affirmative evi-
dence that the University actually solicited the
founders of the College to inaugurate dental edu-
cation in the Medical School. Chapin Harris wrote:

Eighty-five years have elapsed since a small
group of twenty-six dental pioneers met at Niagara
Falls, N. Y., and founded the American Dental
Association. During the interim since 1859 that
small nucleus of twenty-six members has grown to
sixty thousand. But growth in membership is not
the only criteria by which an organization should
be evaluated. Contributions to society, service to
members, contributions to health, education and
professional standards-these are the norms by
which an organization should be measured.
The history and progress of the American Den-
tal Association is the story of thousands of dentists
who carry the message of organized dentistry into
every state and every community. They dedicate
their talents to a common purpose: the purpose of
improving the health and happiness of millions of
The history of organized dentistry in America
began in 1840 with the formation of the Ameri-
can Society of Dental Surgeons, antedating by
nineteen years the organization of the American
Dental Association in 1859. In 1869 the Southern
Dental Association was organized. In 1897 these
two groups merged to form the National Dental
Association. State and local dental societies multi-
plied as rapidly as did the problems that con-
fronted them with the result that the national
body was reorganized on the present basis in 1913.
In 1922 it assumed its original name, the American

and free interchange of sentiments, either written

When the first dental college was about going in operation,
we were waited on by three members of the faculty of one
of our oldest and most respectable medical schools and
tendered such a professorship as is suggested by Dr. Gardette,
but we declined it on the ground that no purely medical
institution could afford the necessary facilities for thorough
practical instruction in operative and mechanical dentistry,
and that consequently, if we accepted it, we would be
employed in making the worst kind of quacks-men without
skill, but with acknowledged pretensions to it.
Can we not, in view of this testimony by the great
Chapin Harris, abandon our allegiance to a myth
that has contributed nothing but confusion, and
in the future condition our deliberations of the
needs of dental education on the factual founda-
tion of its naturalpeculiarities?
The "derogatory statement" suggests medicine's
contempt for dentistry or, at least, the physician's
impatient toleration of the dentist. But the re-
corded attitude of medicine toward dentistry at
that period presents a diametrically opposite pic-
ture. This favorable evidence deserves to be ac-
cepted instead of the legends that portray den-
tistry in the role of a pariah among the profes-
sions. Dr. Thomas E. Bond, Jr., in an address at
the first College commencement, stated the true
attitude of the physician toward the infant enter-
To the medical profession, too, we are happy to acknowl-
edge ourselves under great obligations. From the first they
have been our warm and zealous friends. They have despised
the fitful jealousy, so often and so falsely attributed to them,
and everywhere and in every way, they have promoted the
success of an infant enterprise.
It would appear that we should accept the testi-
mony of these founders-the personal experiences
of the men who conceived the college and estab-
lished it on a firm foundation-as conclusive evi-
dence that the independent college was preferred
and approved by the medical profession, rather
than be guided by the spurious assumption that
dentistry had been spurned by medicine-an imag-
inary refuge conjured up by those who came later
and who made an effort through emotional appeal
to gain for themselves a selfish advantage.
Further proof of the error of this "derogatory
statement" and additional evidence of the favor-
able attitude of the physicians of that period to-
ward autonomous dental education is to be found
in the Maryland Medical and Surgical Iournal,
October, 1839, the official organ of the Medical
and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. It is im-
portant to bear in mind that this editorial was
written before the Bill to establish a dental college
was introduced to the Maryland Legislature.
We trust the time has come when dental surgeons will bestir
themselves in meeting the obligations of the whole community
which are upon them, and not confine themselves to the
building up of personal reputation and individual fortune.
They have the time and the talent, and should freely lend the
one, and bestow the other, in the most unwearied efforts to
drive every quack from their field.
We would particularly call their attention to an immediate
effort either to establish schools of dental surgery in this
page one hundred seventy
country, or attach chairs devoted to this branch of a medical
education, to the different colleges already in existence.
Although many difficulties would necessarily be encountered
in carrying into successful operation either of these sugges-
tions, we nevertheless believe that one or the other of them
could be fully carried out, to the great benefit of both pro-
fessions, and the people generally.
Let the members of these kindred professions but see, eye
to eye, and unite diligently in the determination to exalt the
standard of education in both departments of their work.
This declaration indicates the medical profes-
sion,s earnest interest in 1840 in some effective
plan of dental education and its willingness to
encourage and to assist the dental surgeon in meet-
ing his obvious responsibilities. Instead of conclud-
ing that "the subject of dentistry was of little
consequence," they looked upon it as bearing heavy
responsibilities to the community. The favorable
attitude of medicine expressed in the foregoing
statement is in harmony with Bond's testimony
that "from the first they have been our warm and
The Maryland Medical and Surgical journal was
founded in 1839 with a board of six editors. The
most prominent among these was the distinguished
Nathaniel Potter who became the sole editor of
the journal in 1840. It is entirely probable that
he was the author of the editorial above quoted
since he was the best known and most talented
writer of those on the Editorial Board. It is sig-
nificant that he was Professor of Medicine in the
University of Maryland in the memorable year
of 1839, while Samuel G. Baker, another member
of the Editorial Board, was Dean of the Medical
School, University of Maryland, in 1839-the year
in which the alleged rejection of dentistry by the
faculty of medicine was presumed to have oc-
curred. These authoritative comments so compli-
mentary to the dental profession pointedly con-
tradict the spirit of the alleged charge that the
faculty of the University of Maryland repulsed
dentistry because it was unimportant.
In view of the foregoing we must agree with
the conclusion reached by Dr. William J. Gies
who, having carefully reviewed all the facts in the
The first dental school was created, by preference and not
as an unwelcome alternative, in accordance with the matured
judgment of its founders that dental education could be
promoted most effectively in colleges established to advance it.
There can be no question of the validity of this
conclusion and unless we accept it and insist that
all efforts to improve dental education shall be
based upon this philosophy, the dental science and
aft will be permanently injured and will not be
prepared to meet the great responsibility which
society has conferred upon it.
Despite the fact that no rejection of dentistry
ever occurred, many comments may be found
throughout dental literature presuming to explain
the reason why the University of Maryland spurned

NE OF THE most important steps to be taken after graduation is a State Board
examination. A good many dentists some time in their lives, have wished for reciprocity
with some other state so that they could make a change from their first location.
About 15 years ago the National Board was created by the American Dental Asso-
ciation. With the National Association of Dental Examiners behind it, the future of
the National Board looks more promising, than a few years ago, when the Board did
not have this support. We have already had a number of individual members of state
boards express their desire to accept the National Board certificate who were openly
antagonistic a few years ago but now are lending encouragement.
You will find in the Circulars of Information, available in the dean's office, the
purpose of the National Board, requirements for admission to examinations, information
regarding the Certificate of Qualification, list of states having dental laws that permit
them to recognize the certificate, and list of subjects for Part 1 and 2 examinations,
and other pertinent information.
Juniors should by all means consider taking Part 1 examination before going into
their Senior year, so as to get that examination out of the way. A number have waited
until they were Seniors and then wanted to take both parts at the same time, but only
one part at a time can be taken. If would like to emphasize that the Juniors consider
this examination. States are alreadyconsidering seriously some method of taking care
of men coming out of the service. One of the best and easiest ways would be for these
men to present the state board a Certificate of Qualification from the National Board
and have it accepted.

Behold! I am a faded Christmas tree.
For one short week I lived in ecstasy,
And then, for no good cause that I could see
Or reason, even yet, that's clear to me,
Things took a slump.
For when that one short week of joy was past,
There came a change of very great contrast,
They stripped my jewele'd bough, and then at last
They took me out unfeelingly and cast
Me on the dump.
And yet, I have no bitter tears to spill.
To live one week, and little children thrill,
Is worth a century growing on a hill.

dentistry's request for a place in its curriculum.
These comments grade from mere speculation to
complicated theoryg from casual references to de-
tailed argument. Most of these comments are
harmless, while some few reach the proportions
of a positive menace. Their importance is deter-
mined not so much by what is said as by who said
them. The prestige of the commentator, rather
than the basic truth in the argument, has contrib-
uted the weight these opinions have carried. I cite
one of these instances because it represents the
injury that may be done by indulging seriously
in speculation based upon assumption.
In 1929, Dr. F. C. Waite contributed to a den-
tal periodical, a series of papers on dental educa-
tion. One article caption, The Beginning of Insti-
tutional Dental Education in the United States,
discussed in detail the reasons for medicine's al-
leged rejection of dentistry. He later admitted
that the data upon which he based his observations
were derived from the Historicall Sketch of the
University of Maryland, School of Medicine, writ-
ten by Eugene F. Cordell. He accepted as funda-
mental to his argument Cordell's statement that
three men, namely, Baxley, Bond and Hayden,
attempted to establish a dental department at the
University of Maryland, and he emphasized Cor-
dell's statement that Harris was added later to the
faculty of the Baltimore College. He referred spe-
cifically to the unpopularity of Baxley, who was
prominent in the old Trustees versus Regents fight
in the University, and concluded that since Baxley
was very unpopular with the Regents he would
not have been welcomed by the Faculty of the
Medical School and therefore his presence as a
petitioner for the dental college was grounds for
its rejection. Waite stated that:
This dental faculty of three men came to the medical
faculty with the proposal that they be made an adjunct part
of the medical faculty in order to give especial attention to
dental instruction. Such an arrangement would restore Dr.
Baxley to the professorship of anatomy and physiology from
which four months earlier he had been ousted. Such restora-
tion would either displace his rival, Dr. Willam N. Baker, a
popular teacher, or else make these two rivals joint occupants
of the same chair. It would put intoa combined faculty of
less than ten men a group of three, Dr. Baxley and his two
associates, who were not only promoters of a ,radical departure
in professional education, but were led by Dr. Baxley, who
had been opposing for two years the group that were now
asked to accept him into a place of restored power.
The serious error committed by Waite in his
theorizing is understood when it is known that
Baxley actually took no part in planning the dental
college, that his name was not included in the
Faculty of the proposed College when the Bill was
presented in the House of Delegates of the Mary-
land Legislature and that his name was added later
in' an amendment to the Bill after it had passed
the House and reached the Senate. Baxley was an
afterthought, he was thoroughly indifferent to
the movement, having held the chair of Anatomy
and Physiology in the Faculty of the College for
page one hundred eighty
but one year, when he resigned. He could not
have been the cause of a rejection-even if there
had been one.
This error by Waite would have no meaning if
all of us were well informed on the facts of dental
history, but because the profession lacks accurate
information this conclusion issuing from a respon-
sible scientist carried a weight with both dentists
and physicians that has influenced education to
attempt improvements in dental education on the
basis of an erroneous concept. Among those who
read and believed Dr. Waite's argument was Dr.
F. T. Van Beuren who, in 1932, delivered an im-
portant address before a meeting of the American
Association of Medical Schools, entitled Dentistry:
The Errant Branch: Shall Medicine Re-adopt it?
His concept of the status of dental education was
influenced by Waite's misinterpretation of the
facts of dental history and his effort to explain,
by theorizing, an incident that never occurred.
The earnestness of Van Beuren's belief in the leg-
end of dentistry's rejection is apparent in the
spectacular caption of his address. Said Van Beuren:
About one hundred years ago, dentistry, whose ranks had
theretofore been recruited largely from the medical profession,
announced itself as a definite specialty outside of medicine by
organizing, in Baltimore, the first dental faculty in the
United States. The three members of this dental faculty
sought admission to the Faculty of Medicine of the so-called
University of Maryland. Their request was rejected-not
because of any quarrel between medicine and dentistry, for-
merly parts of the same whole--but for two very good
reasons: one, that medicine at that time discouraged any form
of specialization, and the other, because there was definite
personal ill-feeling among the members of that faculty toward
one member of the new dental faculty, a man who had
formerly been a troublemaker in their own school.
Here is a criticism of dental education's status
offered by a scientist whose point of view was dis-
torted by errors in dental history that had been
provided him by men who should have known
better. While the attitude of Van Beuren toward
dentistry was friendly and obviously designed to
be helpful, his lack of intimate understanding of
his subject and his dependence upon an authority
that provided him with error rather than fact,
made the over-all effect hurtful instead of helpful.
Since his premise was false, his conclusions had to
be erroneous. How can medicine hope to help
dentistry and how can dentists assist in solving
their own problems when they approach the situa-
tion through a labyrinth of assumptions, false
theories, inaccurate interpretations, pedantry and
prejudices? My suggestion is that there are fun-
damental values inherent in a better understand-
ing of the facts of dental history and we should
avail ourselves of these facts because only truth
will serve as a foundation upon which we may
In the foregoing discussion I have described the
caricature of dentistry that has been created by
false assumptions and careless theorizing which
the profession has thoughtlessly permitted to gain

favor. There is quite a different picture reposing
in the true facts sprrounding the beginnings, the
development and the growth of dentistry as a
special branch of the healing art. Dentistry has
had a very rational and a very real experience con-
trasted to the distortions and abortions with which
legend has burdened it. Its actual experience has
directed naturally the course of dentistry along a
path parallel with but distinct from the course
of conventional medicine. No one can study den-
tal history carefully and faithfully without a
growing consciousness and a deepening conviction
that dentistry's separation from medicine is a nat-
ural one, and no one can evaluate its responsibilities
to society without admitting that its autonomous
position is a proper one.
Among the term papers on Dental History writ-
ten by the students in my 1942 class was one on
the theme, Historic Efforts to Make Dental Edu-
cation a .Part of Medical Education. The student
to whom this topic was assigned carefully studied
the efforts that have been made to change the
autonomy of dentistry and the assigned reasons for
these many ventures and having recorded all the
evidence on the topic available in dental literature
he wrote this conclusion: "We realize that den-
tistry, even in its infancy, was not a child of medi-
cine and, if a prophecy may be tolerated, never
will be. Dentistry became an independent profes-
sion, not through rebellion against medicine, but
as a matter of necessity. And through this neces-
sity, a dental school was realized." What this stu-
dent discovered in his interesting experience of
delving into the records of the past will most
certainly be discovered by any open-minded, truth-
seeking, diligent inquirer who seeks to know the
facts of dentistry's status. j
While authentic information regarding the early
status of dentistry in relation to medicine is meager,
there is evidence that the restorative dental art
was never a part of the medical art. There is also
evidence that oral surgery was practiced in part
by physicians, but was soon abandoned to the oral
,specialist. It is revealed also that the biological
sciences upon which both medicine and dentistry
now depend were developed independently of both
the medical and the dental arts. The basic sci-
ences were cultivated in institutions of learning
or among scholars, while the art of medicine and
the art of dentistry were perpetuated through the
apprentice or the preceptorial systems by the two
separate vocational groups. Lack of application
of the growing basic sciences to the use of the
healing arts continued for a long time before an
effective correlation of them through educational
channels was begun. When the knowledge of the
basic sciences was finally applied to the arts of
practice the adjustment was made through the
application of the sciences to an improvement of
their therapeutic procedures. When the effects of
the sciences began to be felt by the medical and
dental arts there was no tendency under this ar-
rangement toward union of the two nor was there
any apparent need for artificial interference to
bring the two arts together as a means of securing
greater benefits to either. There was no tendency
in the movement to disturb the dental art in its
firm position of autonomy, and as a consequence
it has continued its separate course as an eminently
useful health service. There has been nothing in
this modern era to indicate, per se, that such union
should be effected or that a merger would be
The discussions and controversies over den-
tistryis relationship to medicine have been too
speculative and too theoretical to contribute effec-
tively to dental progress. Investigators have not
gone deep enough into the substratum of the past
to discover why dentistry achieved and now holds
an independent status as a health service agency.
The question of dentistry's proper medical rela-
tionship will not be settled by judge or jury but
will be clearly defined by a knowledge of the pur-
poses for which it was designed and an honest
effort made to achieve these purposes.
In view of the facts of history it is futile to
argue that dentistry was ever a part of medicine
or that it should be restored to the protective
guardianship of the medical profession. The claim
that its practice was at one time included in the
medical art just isn't true, and if misguided efforts
to make it a specialty of the medical curriculum
are outwardly successful, it will follow that the
substance of the dental art will be so violated that
dentistry as it is now known will disappear and
an unsatisfactory substitute will appear to take

N PAST YEARS the School of Dentistry has always produced fine basketball teams,
well known throughout the city, but these past two years have seen some better-than-
usual players and teamwork. Athletic activity is limited to a minimum due to a lack
of time, however, some men realizing that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boyl'
and that a well-rounded life consists of physical as well as mental and moral activity
find time to participate in various athletic games.
During the season of '42-,43 a team of dental students entered the YMCA league
with gratifying results, namely, the championship. At the close of the league an invita-
tional tournament was entered and also won. Trophies for both championships were
presented to the team at a banquet in their honor in the spring of '43. The trophies
now reside in the office of the Dean. In the years to come it will be with pride that
we return to view these trophies which we hope will be in some appropriate trophy case.
The championship team consisted of Bale, Dawson, Albo, Rasmussen, Ogden, Greene,

Failing in an attempt at Inter-Collegiate Athletics an Intramural Committee was
formed consisting of McCue as Chairman, Ogden for Psi Omega, Whiteman for the
Independents, Mabry for ZIPS and Mammel for the Delta Sigs. A four-team league
was organized with games every Thursday night at the Sweeney Gym on the Campus.
A fast brand of ball was exhibited and a great deal of fun by spectator and participant
alike was had. The league was won by the Psi Omegas hands down, and the final results
speak for themselves:

Psi O's . . . 6 1000 Ogden
Independents . 4 667 Whiteman
Z I P ' s . . . 2 3 3 3 Mabry
Delta Sigs . . . 0 000 Mammel
At the close of the league an all-star team was chosen by the Intramural Com-
mittee, based on the players' scoring ability, spirit and teamwork. The all-star team was:

Since the beginning of time there has been a
strange species, dominant in the male sex, roaming
over the world doing no good and full of evil
intentions. The scientific nomenclature for this
species of man is "N0cturnis Coetus Ghandiensusf,
or in lay language, "Ghandi." Dr. Eisencoke, who
has been experimenting with these organisms for
some time, states that a Ghandi is produced every
thirteen generations in certain family trees, and in
the meantime, Ghandi producing chromazomes
and genes are having the timeof their lives with
the others about them. He also states, "The pH
of a Ghandi is 2.0346." But enough of this bom-
basticism over the science and history of these
earthly creatures, let's get to the point. Our den-
tal college harbors an exceedingly large number
of Ghandies within its walls during the daylight
hours, turning them loose at five p.m. every eve-
ning to prey upon the peaceful citizens of the
city and surrounding ucountyf, These Ghandies
are classed according to their habitat. A large band
of them live north and quite a few live south,
thus, North and South Side Ghandies. These sep-
arate bands have developed every year since the
founding of our institution, each having their
own operating grounds with the space between
31st and 40th Street acting as insulation between
the two areas. Occasionally a south or north-sider
ventures into this space in his wanderings only to
tear back across his boundary upon discovering
we gafffe oflffze gymncliw
his position. Rumor has it that in 1910, a South
Side Ghandi and a North Side Ghandi strayed deep
into this "no man's land" from their individual
ends of town and at exactly midnight the two
made contact in a dive on 35th and Troost Avenue.
Of course the chemistry of the two being the same,
they had like valences and when contact was made
a violent reaction occurred, the electronic repelling
force pushing these Ghandies so far apart that
the South Side Ghandi never wandered north of
Waldo after 6 p.m. again and the north-sider
operated only where the air still carried the scent
of the stockyards. Since 1910, time has tended
to erase some of the fear bestowed in the Ghandies
over the thought of meeting up with a Ghandi
from opposite ends of town in "no man's landi'
f31st to 40th Streetj, and now the Ghandies of
opposite faiths have been seen operating in the
same block when picking is ample for both. How-
ever, hatred persists between the two factions and
I predict a great battle when both invade "no
man's land" the same "D-evening" with operating
only good enough for one group of "sweaters"
I would like to inform the public as to who will
be the commander of the North Side forces fKing
Ghandij , but so many qualify for the position it
would be folly to name but one. Therefore, I will
name the contenders for the throne. Geo. Yancy,
seen above descending the steps of General Hos-
pital, was headed for the regal glory spot but was
THE SOUTH SIDERS
THE NORTH SIDERS
wounded in action near the Liberty Memorial and
J. C. Schulte, Jr., took the lead in a daisy field.
Schulte is seen above in front of his headquarters,
the Arizona Club, where he would like to exchange
his throne for a saddle. To his left are two junior
contenders, "Baby Facen Johnson and Ray Spyres,
both excellent examples of Ghandidom, and are at
the moment in their own neighborhood. "Oily"
Iman is a strong runner-up, seen above working
on a victim. "Oily" is a sly, quiet working Ghandi.
The picture in the upper right corner contains
more livin Ghandies per square inch than any
ever before taken by humanlhands. Alexander
innocently peeks around the door hoping it will
not get out too strong that he is a top-notch
Ghandi, even now! Jim Avery, of Omar Room
Fame, looks through a microscope at this group's
most hated enemy. On this occasion Julius Icasa
brought in the specimens. Tony Scandura has his
hands on the back of a chair in the picture. He
usually has to hang on to something. John Lieual-
len, a sullen Ghandi, sits in the background. All
of the above are first-class North Side Ghandies.
Of the South Side Ghandies, we have an undis-
puted "king" in the lower right-hand corner.
Probably the deciding factor, besides the picture,
was the fact that he was wounded in action and
staying in the saddle. He is also seen in the lower
center with his aide "Big Stuckv Stucky in his
most natural form, and in the upper center fthe
night afterj with the 'Big Stuck" again and a
great operator and "sweater,,' Lt. Otho Qsweetj
Wfashburn. The young gentleman, Don Wallace,
in the upper right picture, is full of goodness,
desiring to hurt no one and probably shouldn't be
classed as a Ghandi at all, but is forced to live
with Ghandies due to his unmarried status. He
works hard on the clinic floor and studies most
of his evenings away. He will undoubtedly be a
first-class dentist in a very 'few years and an asset
to his profession. In the upper left corner is Mil-
ford Sanders, a quiet working Ghandi as he has
a steady who would beat him to death if she knew.
The center left is Clif Clark, who Ghandies and
gets paid for it at Harzfeld,s Beauty Salon. Ladies
call him Andre. "Red Honeyl' Blume, center right,
will soon be through with his Ghandi days as the
altar is closing in on him fast. Evans. a one-time
loser, still pines for Anne. Some believe he is look-
ing for her which is his reason for traveling from
tavern to tavern.
Study these pictures well so that you can segre-
gate a South Side from a North Side Ghandi. This
will come in handy on the D-evening when both
forces strike the same tavern as you will know
upon their sight to get as far away as possible
since a bloody battle is sure to ensue. This battle
will continue physically and verbally until every
last Ghandi has been eliminated from one side.
Only then can either of the sides infest the 31st
to 40th Street area without worries of contamina-
tion by opposite side Ghandies. Therefore, until
the D-evening, the battle cry of both sets of
Ghandies will be "Sl-40 or fight." D. G. W.

The Bushwhacker has been compiled, edited, and published
by representatives of the Junior class continuously for
twenty-four years. Each year the dean advises the staff
concerning their duties and obligations to the student body,
the faculty, and the school.
The composition of each volume has been reviewed by
the dean, and some issues by members of the faculty as well
as competent personnel. Some publications have been excellent
and others mediocre. '
At times students have been venturesome in their contribu-
tions, and articles which seemed objectionable have been
deleted, but in some instances the staff persisted in having
these quips or offerings published without adhering to the
advice of the dean or faculty members. 'There has always
page one hundred eighty-eight
been a tendency, on the part of the faculty and the dean,
to avoid being too strict or discouraging to the staff's
initiative, trusting they would be sufficiently conservative to
The Bushwhacker is a man's publication in a man's institu-
tion and it is true that some liberties might be taken which
would seem indiscreet in a coeducational publication. An
occasional article or cartoon may have offended, but it has
always been the desire of the faculty that our annual should
be representative of the wholesome thinking of the student
body. We trust that the Bushwhacker will be better each
year and that when it reaches the students and faculty for
distribution it will be looked upon as a real contribution to
the educational and cultural life of the institution.

Have you a copy of our i6-page Illustrated Price
One axiom has come out of the debate over the relative merits of clasp
and attachment restorations-that neither type is a universal "best."
The important advantages of attachments are:
I-Life of the abutment tooth is greatly prolonged because, since the attach-
ment is within the contour of the tooth, the stress applied is in line with
its long axis, and also because possible erosion under a clasp is eliminated.
2-Esthetics enhanced by eliminating a show of clasps, particularly on
anterior teet .
3-Attachments assure much more comfort to patient because of greater
stablility iIn a pregision attachment and because all material on surfaces of
teet is e iminate .
The case illustrated is one in which "doctors agree" better practice indicates
attachments for the reasons given.
Generally speaking attachments should be used:
0 when the number and location of clasps required will form a too cum-
bersome or unesthetic appliance,
0 when an abutment tooth lacks normal stability, a precision attachment
will by itself ifnmobilize the tooth without addition of the indirect retainers
necessary in c asp work,
0 when the abutment teeth already accommodate the required inlays or
As makers of attachments, we are as anxious to discourage their P
use where contra-indicated as to encourage it where indicated.
