The Relationship Between Professor
By Arthur H. White, M. D.
N common with most other things in or on this
earth, the relationship between professor and student
may be looked upon from a varying' number of stand-
points. It is, however, only necessary or pertinent
for us to consider two objectives-that of the pro-
fessor in his dizzy elevation of learning' and great-
ness, and that of the student, occupying- his forlorn
position at the bottom of the pit of unenlightenment.
From the point of view of the professor, the relation-
ship to his class is usually of a most pleasant char-
acter, assuming' always, however, a certain amount
of ability and willingness to learn on the part of his
students, and on his part a knowledge of how best
to impart to his hearers a modicum of that combi-
nation of the ologies with which his head is so well
Hy far the most important consideration in the
bond between professor and student is mutual con-
fidence and co-operation. This is a sine qua non of
all academic and scientific learning', and in its absence
results are nil and scholars are an absent quantity.
Many of the ablest men of our profession have made
most abject and miserable failures as teachers, not
from any lack of knowledge of the subject which
they undertook to teach, but entirely on account of
their inability to acquire the faculty of co-operating
with those whom they were attempting' to teach.
The cause of this fault is, in diPferent men, due to
many different traits, the commonest, perhaps, being
an overweening assumption of dignity on the part
of the lecturer. The type was more common in the
past than in the present-a concentrated essence of
standoffishness and dignity encased in a frock coat
and more or less completely hidden behind a large
output of most learned and high-sounding medical
phraseology, punctuated at discreet intervals by a

as a result of the loss of bodily. heat. Oxidation and
caloritication diminish as we grow old.
Physiological deterioration and anatomic decay of
cells are as much a part of the "vital phenomena" of
life as are the processes of developing two cells from
a single cell and the formation of bone cells, nerve
cells, and muscle cells from embryonic cells. Cell
life is transitory. It performs its "vital phenomena"
and dies. One cause of the death of a cell is mechan-
ical, as may be observed in the epithelial cells of the
skin, which are removed by attrition when their
daughter and granddaughter cells replace them. Simi-
larly, we find the cells thrown ol? in the mouth,
alimentary canal, glands, and excretory organs. An-
other cause of the deathof a cell is necrobiosis or
chemical change, as observed in the fatty metamor-
phosis in the human breast when milk is formed, in
fatty degeneration, as in muscular tissue such as seen
in involution of a pregnant uterus, etc,g and in cal-
careous and other forms of chemical disintegra-
tion resulting from pathological Cdisease producingj
causes. Destructive metabolism of a cell is increased
by activity. The result is oxidation, giving oh' CO2
and HO: chemical disintegration, solution, absorp-
tion, and excretion. Death is then the final stage of
