FRESHMAN DENTAL CLASS

Freshman Dental Class
By Chas. E. Meagher, Class Editor
Many and oft will be the times that the members
of the Class of '11 will look back to their freshman
year, not with any feeling of regret or sadness, but
with smiles on their countenances, as the various
antics cut up by them come to their memory. Never
since the disaster of 1906 has such a class been seen
in the halls at the P. 81 S. .lilut it must first be said
to their credit that they willingly submitted to all
rules and regulations of the college and all precedents
established by their predecessors. Wfillingly did they
submit to the initiation of their president and many
other such customary pranks of the upper classmen.
Never will it be said that they were not a lively
bunch. After having frightened the juniors, who
presumed to run over them, not being able to find
any other pastime, they took to the shower-bath plan
for all loafers on the college steps.
Though for all this they possessed an eagerness to
advance along practical and theoretical lines equal
to any other previous freshman dental class. Wlher-
ever they were associated with other classes in the
lecture room, the freshmen always held up their OWI1.
NVhenever they were busy at their laboratory benches,
they allowed not interference. The penalty for such
an offense was a sample of Spring Valley's best.
One thing which dampened the mirth of the class
toward the middle of the term was the departure of
our old friend, "Pop" Knowlton, who, on account of
his age, was unable to serve us longer. He has been
supplemented by "Pop" No. 2, alias 'iPop" Tambling,
who by his persuasive manner tended to shape the
ideas of the student along the right lines.
The last and greatest thing performed by the Class
of '11 was the farewell dance given to the seniors.
Never before had any other freshman class dared
or even presumed to take this honor from the junior
class. The Class of '11, seeing the negligence of the
juniors, seized the golden opportunity, the result of
which was the realization of the best of the social
functions given at the college during the year. They
have set a precedent for the future classes which
ought not to be neglected, but one which a class of
less ambition cannot follow.

EING a stranger in San Francisco, without friends
or relatives who could show me this metropolis of
the Pacific, I started out to find for myself the points
of interest. Boarding a Mission Street car, I was
politely informed to either pay my fare or get off,
and I will assure that I immediately complied with
the demand. I rode out Mission Street until I heard
the conductor call out, "Fourteenth Street,', and then I
got off. I have often tried to figure out, but never
could quite tell why I left the car there, unless the
atmosphere, which I afterwards found out was in-
fected, had affected me.
I wandered leisurely up Fourteenth Street until I
came to a building with a wide, inviting entrance,
which had above the door the following inscription,
"College of Physicians and Surgeons." I had not
stood there for more than two or three seconds until
I became aware of a cloudburst, which seemed to
cover only a few feet of space, of which I was the
center. Then such a shout of laughter as I heard!
I was about to walk away, looking like a drowned
rat, when a dark-complexioned fellow of slender build,
wearing a long coat well padded at the shoulders,
his trousers neatly pressed, and a black derby hat,
approached me. I-Iis roguish, dark eye and smooth
manner seemed to overpower me completely. As he
came closer, I understood him to be saying some-
thing about hypnotizing me. This indeed set me to
thinking. I looked in all directions for some avenue
of escape, but for some reason was unable to go.
He beckoned me in at the basement door, something
told me not to go, but I was powerless against his
will. I followed through a dark basement and num-
berless corridors, until at last we came into a room
about twelve by fifty, filled with tables, around which
were seated men, who I afterwards found out were
dental students. These fellows were all engaged in
