ing American medical officers pay the surgeon' about S720 per year, besides all living expenses. In addi- tion, most lines allow the doctor to send bills for the treatment of all ailments not contracted aboard ship. As a result the income of the doctor at sea is far above the reputed average of physicians' income ashore, 3700. The surgeons on the American and Holland Ameri- can lines are said to average about 32,500 and living expenses, while the average on the coast lines above mentioned is about 31,500 and expenses. On the big ships of the VVhite Star Line, like the Adriatic, Baltic, Cedric and Celtic, all of which carry two medical ofiicers, the chief surgeon collects on an average .5-1800 per year. An added advantage is that there is not one cent's worth of expense for ofilice rent, books, instruments, the keeping of horses or automobiles, telephone, and the innumerable ne- cessities which take so large a part of the income of the practicing physician. Again, sea life is less strenuous than life ashore. Night calls, and they are infrequent, can be made without stepping into the air. There are no long drives, no jealous confreres, no backbiting patients. Sea practice is as near ideal practice as can ever be found in this life. The young medical man who loves old ocean, and is on the lookout for an opening, can do no better than to accept a ship's surgeoncy Cif he can get itj, with the feeling that he will not lose caste, for the medical profession has no more high-minded, earnest, and hardworking representatives than those who go down to the sea in ships. 172

the approbation of the officers escaped their attention. After inspection the surgeon made his cabin calls, occasioned chiefly on account of seasickness. Then followed the surgery hour, where twenty-two of the third cabin passengers and members of the crew asked for medical advice. The cases were mostly of a minor nature-coughs, colds, sprains, cuts, and the like, made up the list. Many asked for an "opening medicinef' with the result 'that black draught was liberally given by the hospital steward. The passing of sounds added to the variety of life on one steerage passenger, while another enjoyed the sensation fol- lowing urethral irrigation. During the afternoon, the surgeon had an opportunity to get a two-hour nap. Then came the evening hospital calls, and at 8:30 o'clock the evening surgery hour. At this time it was necessary to reduce a hernia and fit a truss. A bad case of varicose ulcer was treated and a couple of stitches were taken in the scalp of a pugnatious Irishman, who had decried England's greatness in the hearing of a loyal Britisher. A fireman overcome by the heat in the stoke hole, and another with sup- pression of urine ended the labors of the surgeon for the night. Such was a day's routine, and happy was the medical man when, on reaching port, he was able to land every person on the ship. Two went to the hospital.. but both were 'fout of the woods" before the vessel again turned its prow homeward. From this brief resume it will be seen that the surgeon of the big transatlantic liner is no drone. His working hours are long, and much of his leisure time is taken up in the study and perusal of medical litera- ture, of which he usually has a generous supply. The surgeon's library is ample, and up to date, and his medical and surgical equipment are the best. The remuneration of the ship's surgeon depends entirely upon the size of a vessel, its destination, number of passengers, the length of the trip, and the condition of the weather. Most of the lines employ- l7I

Glullrge nf lghgairimw aah Sfurgrnna Bun Zlfruuriarn, Llal. wlD6feH5, the Almighty Father has seen fit to remove from our midst our beloved classmate, Claire Freiman, of the Senior Class of the College of Physi- cians of San Francisco, we, her fellow-students, feel that we have lost a good and faithful student, and a loyal and true friend. For more than three years she was closely associated with us in our work, sharing with us our joys and our sorrows, and always ready with a kind word to each and a smile for all. Her sudden demise seemed so untimely, she was so full of energy and high ambitions and when her work in the College was almost at an end she was called to her Eternal Home. But we know that the Father Who watches over us all knows what is best, and we bow in sub- mission. 'lR65Ol.VCb, that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the sorrowing Mother and Brother, to whom we extend our sincere sympathy, and that a copy be spread upon the minutes of the Secretary's book of the Student Body of the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
