STUBBS 5 THE EEA ' MESSAGE NE of the most cherished duties of my year is that of presenting our graduating students to the President of our University for their degrees in Veterinary itledicinc. Commencement Day this year will be a particularly happy one in that it marks the com- pletion of two hundred years during which this Uni- versity has been preparing men for lives of public service. It has been two hundred years of growth, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. You have all come to know much about the physical features of our University, its acreage, the halls and laboratories, athletic fields, and so on. You are acquainted with the various depart- ments and have heard of the many aspects of knowledge being taught and further investigated by the stall. But I wonder if you have caught a glimpse of the domain which is Pennsylvania spirit. Not material, it is difficult to define and sometimes hard to identify. But Pennsylvania spirit is a force, and one of the might forces of our civilization which has been growing for the past two hundred years and expanding from its center, Philadelphia, until it now practically covers the world. It is sometimes thought of as tradition, or culture, or ideals, which are all rather reflections from the real gem. This force, which has meant much in the develop- ment of our nation from colonial days, is growing and expanding all the time, and our Veterinary graduates have done their parts well, as you all know. You, the Veterinary graduates of this Bi- centennial year, will soon go your various ways, to return from time to time for visits and reunions. You will all take with you, wherever you go, the heritage of the past two hundred years, the ele- ment of Pennsylvania spirit. To what extent this spirit grows in you will depend on yourself. YVe of the Faculty and the alumni body wish you success in your chosen field. Wie are confident that you will carry the Penn- sylvania spirit with you. N N I 6 llllll Wllltll HE Veterinary Profession is one of the cornerstones underlying national prosperity. It is necessary for a suc- cessful livestock industry which in turn is necessary for successful agriculture, which is the foundation of a prosperous nation. Property values running into billions of dollars are directly concerned. Farms, trans- portation companies, packing plants, Whole- sale and retail meat and milk business are all more or less dependent upon the watchful eye of the Well-trained Veterinarian. The dividers in this book were selected as a means of illustrating some of the phases of the Veterinary Profession. RESEARCH This is one of the most important and interesting of all the phases of Veteri- nary Science. The far-reaching effects of Veterinary Research have not been sufficiently emphasized by the Veteri- narians who work in this field. Medical Science has profitedf industry profits, agriculture is especially benefited, and commerce is helped. Very few people know that Veterinary Research made the Panama Canal possible. lts con- struction might have been impossible had not the pioneer work of a Veteri- narian,CooperCurtice, led to the control of yellow fever.

DECEMBER 17, 1939-All joking aside, these re-exams really do indicate those who have brains- these that have don't take them. X-RAY Since its discovery in November, 1895, by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, great strides have been made in the use ofthe X-ray, and much of-the knowledge of the therapuetic value of the ray has come from experiments on animals. The first report of its use in the treat- ment of animal was by Eberlein at the Second Roentgen Congress in 1906. Here at the Department of Radiology of the School of Veterinary Medicine over one thousand treatments have been given in the past eighteen months Animals treated include horses, ponies, cows, goats, dogs, cats, and rats. Many of these have been cured for over a year of malignant and infectious neoplasms formerly considered incurable. THE CLASSE P're.9'iclent .... Vice-Presideni .... Secretary. . . . Treasurer ....

SWAIL III TIIRY UF THE .IUNIIIR CLASS N A SUNNY morning in the Autumn of ,37 fifty-five young men and a young lady strolled across the courtyard to assemble and be addressed as the Class of 1941. It was a diversified group, all were strangers with but a few exceptions, but with a single determination- to become graduate veterinarians. True, unity was conspicuously absent on that morning but it was not to be long before all were acquainted and a spirit born that will not soon be surpassed. Following due initiation into our routine our period of adjustment began-and as I recall the first major adjustment was to develop an immunity to the odors of the anatomy laboratory. This was gradually gained during the mastering of Osteology. Then came the direct exposure and if memory serves me correctly one perfectly good breakfast seceded from a certain stomach on that intial meeting with those few horses which had been both "called and chosenf, Needless to say, he recovered and later became a contemporary lecturer. Of course it was essential that we should be well dressed anatomists, so overalls were ordered "made to measure" and as is always the case they were many sizes too large. Ah, but then came the first washing and what were formerly our drapes were now binding here and pinching there-what a dilemma. Then there was Equitation, and Stock-judging, too, in which many new patrons of "Beech- nut" and "Sparkplug" were born and capably tutored by the old maestro of them all. The year passed and others have followed but "Shown still remains the number one man in that league. "Willie" Savage seems to have been the only permanent convert to the art. It was that year that scholarly Glenn Gates initiated his conquests of prize and medal collection for it was at the ter- mination of that year that he "copped', the general Freshman hledal. Came the second year and 'Aaccording to the man in the back seatn we "took her out of the milk linef, "sent her ear to Harrisburgf, and jotted down the results "in the little black book.', According to "J im Jones it was like religion and politicsi' but Phillips kept his feet on the floor and "Nick', stayed the sixty minutes thereafter and the "Pensy', ran as usual. The seats in the lVIedical School were very uncomfortable, but the feud between Allen and f'Baldy the dentistv was always amusing and provided the necessary diversion. It was during this year that we learned all about race tracks and hosses from "Jim.,,-"did I ever tell you about the night I was coming down from hfaine with a load of hosses and no brakes?" Many afternoons were spent trying to differentiate between potassium and sodium chloride. Much time was likewise dedicated to the Dukes publication endeavoring to comprehend the mysteries of the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems which were to find a practical application in another year. It was in this year that we took Breeds of Livestock without worthy predecessors -they really became quite expert with the rubber band and pellet as the Juniors will testify. Here "G, D.', made it number two when he emerged with the Hutyra and lVIarek anatomy prize, and "Bertie', Dionne was awarded the Suburban Cattle Breeders Association Prize. To maintain this saga of events in a chronological sense we must return to the first two weeks in June of the Sophomore year. It was on a Friday morning when the last of our hurdles had been taken in famous spring classic "the .Final Examsv that we migrated with light hearts and free abandon to a pastoral setting in Media through the courtesy of "Mil', Beatty. For it was here that 35 our male Elsa hfaxwell, that famous host and epieure "Bob" Barton had arranged for the class picnic. The spot was perfect, a large meadow, a babbling brook, and huge willows shading an open fireplace. Refreshments, bathing, and other forms of relaxation Cnote accompanying photo- graphsb were enjoyed, and a more hilarious softball game was never played. VVho will ever forget the umpire baiting, not to overlook "Butch,' and "Path Of course aside from the' pursuit of our regular studies, our minds are also directed in scien- tific channels. Division HAH for example, demonstrated the action of pentobarbital sodium in the feline, good results being reported. This experiment, however, met as do all scientific endeavors, with mixed acclaim, due not to the effects produced but rather to debated custody of the subject. It seems the Ukittyi' had been secretly adopted unknown to the scientists. Speaking of Pharmacology, one should observe the passage of the stomach tube in the equine in such a manner that it is directed in the nostril of one side and emerges from the nostril of the opposite side. Oh, yes, this very capable demonstrator is none other than "Gerry', Fouse, well known dispenser of a current veterinary literature. You might be interested as well as amazed to learn that to test an animal for sensitiveness, one should of all things Cas "CHE" Allen informed the interrogating professorj make a thorough examination of the sexual apparatus, suh. Well, well, itis nearly time for "Jockey" Boyens to start his annual treks to Pimlico and Havre de Grace-which recalls one of his several racing narratives-"Would you believe it, I put two dol- lars on the favorite's nose and the- didn't even finish." If anything of consequence has occurred and perchance you missed it, do not feel badly be cause it will undoubtedly have been recorded for posterity by our ubiquitous Will "Daily News" Savage. Rarely has an important operation or event during the past three years escaped the scru- tiny of Will and his faithful camera. Some of his scoops are included among those appearing in conjunction with this article. Guinea pig fanciers anxiously await the termination of the era of research and experiment and the subsequent commercial marketing of Rothman's mange mixture. Science marches on-the Veterinary School has among its enrollees the first investigator to have ever seen the ovaries QD of the sheep through the medium of the vaginal speculum. Oh, yes, his name is Leighton. Three cheers for those two Chardyj Southerners who photographed that Hhugen two-foot snow- drift in the courtyard Cgo north, young men, go northj for the edification of the folks back home in lVIississippi and Tennessee, where they plant the corn in January, we are told. Every class has one-I refer to those unfortunate individuals who are thc victims of that mania which, as a result of the lack of the proper inhibitory impulses, causes them to throw any accessible object whether it be a rock or a boot at their intended victim, apparently unmindfull of any injury that might ensue. Thus we give you a hero for a day--the Senior who made a hu- man snowball of a certain individual Qyou must have guessedj for indiscreet selection of a victim that time. For every misdemeanor committed one should have an excuse, legitimate or otherwise. The Juniors with deliberation and foresight attended to this important matter early in the Freshman year and have used the same standard throughout for all occasions to wit: "Bailey did itf' 36 MEMBERS OF THE JUNIOR CLASS Allen, C'lil'ford Babe, Farl B.

KOPP . . .JUNE CQRAMMICS CLASS, lllS'l'0ltY 0F 194 TILL in the embryonic stage, the Class of 1942 returned slightly older and wiser to begin the second seige of worries. With a few additions and subtractions we found ourselves with the same number of students as when we left in June. Our first class meeting was a mad confusion between the fraternities, each striving for supremacy. The Alpha Psis came through with three of their men to lead the class. Bill Brown succeeded George Poppenseek as president. Carroll Roll, vice-presidentg lVIort Kolson, secretary: and Howard Kopp, treasurer. The class gave special mention to George, our freshman president, for his wonderful manage- ment and organization. His task was difficult, but his Hue leadership put the class on the right track through the trying freshman year. The next important business which arose was the choosing of the victim to be insured for our class gift to the lfniversity. After an unanimous decision the class decided that perhaps "the Gal- loping Ghost" our "pasty Koppn would not survive the year for even so early he showed signs of exhaustion. So.BIr. lfrdman instead, the youngest member of the class was chosen as the one to be insured. It wasn't long before the class realized 'fwhere ignorance is bliss, ,tis folly to be wise." The classes we now encountered under Dr. lVIcFarland gave many of us something to think about. You can't even have moles now-a-days without worrying about them. One by one our moles were counted to see if we were on the danger line of becoming a victim of the disastrous melanoma. However, despite the frights of what might happen to us we all considered ourselves very for- tunate to have had Dr. lNIcFarland as our teacher. His last lecture was very impressive as he bid farewell to his last class with these words: "There is no need for you to come for a lecture tomorrow, gentlemen. This lecture concludes the course in General Pathology, and this is the last lecture that I will deliver as professor of pa- thology at the University of Pennsylvania. Good luck and God Speed." The class went into an uproar of applause as we, too, bid farewell and honor to one whom We all knew as a gentleman and teacher. VVe found ourselves quite at home again with Dr. Lentz. Without losing any of his profes- sional air of dignity he literally "brought the house down" one day as he gave a crack by crack description of his bones reacting to the blows and twists of a chiropracter who aimed to put his neck in place, and only succeeding in putting his back out of place. From frivolity to sincerity Dr. Lentz impressed upon our minds not only the importance of being good doctors of veterinary medi- cine but also our honesty and sincerity in our love for the work. Another year we spent with our friend and professor, Dr. Booth, who with his kind and helpful spirit made our anatomy classes interesting and indeed at times very amusing. His announcement of our "little talks" at first sent chills down our backs, but when the time came his clever and humorous introductions broke the tension and we soon found ourselves becoming more learned. Mac Robbins in his talk one day demonstrated to us his great ability as a master of ceremoniesg we think he missed his calling. Mr. Rothe gave an excellent talk on the ear. It seemed impossible that such a difHcult discus- sion could be given so fluently and with such ease. lNIr. Ellsworth's talk on the eye was very good and he also proved to be quite an artist. Other talks of outstanding merit were Mr. Witsky's dis- cussion on the skin, Mr. Richman's on the blood, and Mr. Hobert's on the blood supply to the brain. Our nutrition class under Dr. Dick widened our knowledge in other fields as well. We had a branch of Geology which was made more impressionable by observing the samples of rock and fossils which Dr. Dick had collected. 39 After a year and a half of hearing nothing but millet seeds, Dr. Dick finally enlightened us as to the actual size, and with sighs of relief we could not correlate this with the size of lymph nodes, tuhereles, and all sorts of lesions. Vfill we ever forget Dr. Campbellls everchanging roll call which each day introduced us to new niembers of our class. Through his huniorous remarks he deftly impressed upon us the facts of bacteriology. VVe can still hear such phrases as: "VVell, men, hard work isn't easyf' "Many pen- cils have been worn down on this subjectf, "Nice butter you have today, Mrs. Jones," and the theme of a veterinarianis philosophy: "Always keep the back door openf, Dr. Lentz enlivened his lectures with many humorousianecdotes which were fully appre- ciated. Perhaps we needed antidotes more, as we emerged each Blonday afternoon from Phar- macy lab smelling like musty druggistls shelves, and with acrid taste of nasty drugs still disturbing our digestion. Our various holidays were things to be feared because of the dreaded histopath test that pre- eecded each one. These were experiences we shall never forget-hours of frenzied searching for things that failed to manifest themselves. Thus ends our second year. VVe have grown. Our ideas have changed. VVe no longer consider ourselves masters of the medical art but can at last fully realize, "a little knowledge is a dangerous thingf, CLASS MEMBERS Bonese, lvfathew J. Bree, lNIax Brown, VVilliam J.

LIPPINCOTT 42 FRE HMA ULASS lll 'l'0ltY OR fifty-three of us registration meant a year involving orientation, smokers, class organ- ization, and studying. Underlying these was a spirit of good-fellowship and controlled horseplayg the latter permeated every function but never got beyond a slight amount of meat throwing and occasional snowballing. Free smokes handed out by fraternities and clubs were enjoyed by all but like most good things came in small quantities, however, they served their purpose well. Our first class was held in Pearson Hall, men making up the class represented ten states and the District of Columbia. Pennsylvania had thirtyg New Jersey, seveng Connecticut, four, hfassa- chusetts, three: California, two, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee. and District of Columbia, one each, thirty colleges were also represented, the four highest being: Penn, teng Penn State, six, Rutgers, five and lifuhlenberg, four. Dean Dick welcomed us and in his short orientation speech confirmed our hopes for a future in Veterinary hfedicine. After this we were ready for the fundamentals. While in the early stages of the semester the class organized. George Wade, Sam Guss, and John Lippincott were elected president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer, respectively. Long before class affairs the fundamentals came our way and before we knew from whence they came notes were bulging the once sagging notebook covers. The weirdest compilation of all were the organic notes especially when it came time to disentangle them and isolate each formula in one's mind in preparation for a quiz. The uncertainty of some of the lab technique, as to re- sults on the violent side, added amusement to the course: the Hunters and lNIcCoys were good to us and desired only a few of us for a return engagement. The trio of Drs. Lentz, Booth, and D. Lee no doubt often wondered whether we would catch on to anatomy, histology, and embryology- especially the New Jersey lads-but probably most of us did and at the same time developed an appreciation for the artist and humorist. Dr. Lentz's pace was terrific but the material was there -and those breathing spaces-AH! Breeds and Botany kept us wondering but the mid-term exams did nobly by most of us and set us at our ease. The second term brought with it microscopes, titration, Chincoteagues, clinical orientation, stockyards, and "Next man." All proved interesting and essentialg some received their share of destructive criticism but the Chincoteagues took the worst slashing. The guinea pigs, rats, and pigeons were the most neglected and the unknown alkalies had us buffaloed for awhile but, "where there's a will tl1ere's a way." Although the stockyards put up the greatest stench they provided interesting material for Types and Breeds and also the environment for a tobacco chewing epidemic. Clinical orientation proved most practical and did much to stimulate interest in the fundamentals and made us realize Cat an early dateb the importance of being well grounded in these. At present the combined histologies and myology loom before us as the unsurmountables-but time conquers all and we hope these. After having had much real winter weather to encourage the studying, each Warm sunny day tends to create spring fever. Spring also means trips and we are looking forward to these judging trips as we are looking forward to the word which means a return trip in the fall. 43 MEMBERS OF CLASS Abramson, Joseph Berkelhammer, Albert BI.

SMALL ANIMAL SUR GERY "lt is not merely by holding a lcnife- in a certain position, or making an in cision of definite length or form on the surface of the body, that an operation is performed, unless a person has a com- petent familiarity with the under struc- tures he will do well not to interfere with cutting operations. -Sir William Ferguson, 1842. From this quotation we see that surgery is an art and science of great perplexity, and no one can justly call himself a surgeon without being well informed in the fundamentals of anatomy, physiol- ogy, pathology,and other basic sciences. lf it were not for the extensive work done in canine surgery, many of our human surgeons would not be the proud possessors of these fundamental prin- cipals as well as the excellence of tech- nique that distinguishes the surgical artist from the mere manipulator.

WILEY STUDENT CHAPTER OF THE AMERICA VETEIII ARY MEIIIUAL ASSOUlA'I'l0 HIS society, the first of its kind in America, was organized in 1889 through the efforts of Dr. Leonard Pearson. At that time fraternities did not exist at the school, and the society was needed as a means of bringing the students of all the classes together to discuss sub- jects relating to Veterinary medicine. For more than fifty years this idea has been carried on, giving the students an opportunity to hear papers and see demonstrations by the members and by guest speakers who are outstanding men in their particular fields. In addition to the regular meet- ings held twice a month, the smoker in the fall, to acquaint the Freshmen with the soeietyis activ- ities, and the banquet in the spring, as a farewell to the Seniors, are pleasant social affairs. All students enrolled in the school are eligible for membership, and the officers are elected by vote of the active members twice a year. IVe have as Honorary President, Dr. Emmerson, and as Hon- orary Secretary, Dr. Klein, who occupy these positions as long as they are actively connected With the school. In 1931 the society became affiliated with the American Veterinary lNIedical Association as a junior chapter. This strengthened our association with graduate veterinarians and enabled us to attend the national meetings and secure the Journal of the A. V. INI. A. at a special price. So- cieties similar to this one have been formed at other Veterinary Schools in the country, and this year the American Veterinary iNIedical Association has taken a very active interest in them. In an effort to have all of the societies organized on a similar basis, a model constitution was drawn up and submitted to the various chapters, along with a charter, diploma, and key. Changes were suggested by the members, and when a satisfactory constitution was submitted, this society voted to adopt it, as well as the diploma and key. This meant laying aside our traditional name, The Veterinary lifedical Society, and becoming known as The University of Pennsylvania Student Chap- ter of the American Veterinary lNIedical Association. The entire student body will receive the benefit of the organization's activity through the use of the small animal operating tables purchased by the society this year. But more important is the individual benefit received by each member through active participation in the society. Little bits of information, picked up here and there from fellow students and guests, and the self-con- fidence gained from the presentation of papers and the discussions, should stimulate the students to increase their activity in the society.

It was felt that there was a definite place in the Veterinary profession for a society similar to that of Phi Beta Kappa in the realm of arts and Sigma Xi in the field of research. Thus a recognition and promotion of scholarship and research in matters pertaining to the welfare and diseases of animals was achieved. Such a need was felt at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary lVIedicine even before the existence of such a society at Cornell was known. However, upon discovering this fact it was decided to form a Beta Chapter at this School in 1998. At the present time there are chapters in existence at Ohio State, Iowa State, as well as Pennsylvania and Cornell. The Greek letters Phi Zeta stand for Philo Zoa, meaning those having a common love for animals. Those eligible for membership are members of the faculty. graduate students and undergraduate students who have completed two and one-half years of the course in Veterinary hledicine. The following stipulations are mentioned in the constitution: "They shall have an acceptable personality, be of good moral character, and possess high ideals respecting professional service and conduct. If elected in their Junior year, they must rank in the highest ten per cent of this class in scholarship. If elected in their Senior year they must rank in the highest twenty-five per cent of their class in scholarship." Each chapter selects a personage that most closely approximates the ideals of the Society. The Beta Chapter at the University of Pennsylvania has selected Dr. Leonard Pearson, a former dean of the Veterinary School, as its example. There is set aside on each annual program of the organization a talk by one of the members on some phase of Dr. Pearson's interest and activity in veterinary medicine, educa- tion, and research. His wide range of activities in these various fields provides an abundance of topics. To mention a few, we find that he was the first to use tuberculin in the Pnited States for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. His remarkably efficient han- dling of what threatened to be a disastrous foot and mouth disease outbreak in 1908 56 still shines as an example in the control of epizootics. Finally, his deep understanding of the needs in hospital administration is embodied in his statement dated May 4, 1909: "Everyone coming to the hospital must be assured prompt, courteous and im- pressively able attention. Every animal brought to the hospital for treatment must be given a sympathetic and systematic examination, conducted with the utmost attainable thoroughness, and receive the best treatment known to veterinary science for the malady with which it is afflictedf' FRATERS Clyde I.

J, LARGE ANIMAL MEDICINE A division of Veterinary Science that is of importance to all either directly or indirectly. It is through competent veterinary service that the livestock in- dustry of the nation has grown to its tremendous proportions. We now have healthier, more profitable, and better market types of animals as a result of work done by veterinarians in the fields of disease eradication, nutrition, sani- tation, and breeding. THE C0 ANATOMY DEPARTMENT N THE last week of September, nine- teen hundred thirty-six, a group of rather dazed and expectant young people gath- ered together within those sturdy brick walls at Thirty-ninth Street and VVoodland Avenue, to be launched on that dangerous and tempest- tossed sea of the study of Veterinary medicine. Among the various subjects which tried our assorted crafts in the early years were three, all grouped under the heading of Anatomy. If the faculty sought to make us anatomy conscious they certainly succeeded for we seemed to have anatomy in one form or another for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However, the very routine manner of embryology, histology, and gross anatomy lectures and lab, acted as a stimulus to our sense of humor as well as our cerebral cortex, through which it was necessary to hack and carve out new paths of thought and reasoning. lXIany there were who succumbed to the operation. Nevertheless it can only be with a feeling of satisfaction and pride and surely with a great deal of pleasure that we look back upon those early days. One of the most impressionable things was Dr. Lentzis practical demonstration of the arrangement of the fetal membranes by the use of a couple of pencils, a handkerchief, and a piece of chalk. In addition, whether for the purpose of keeping the students awake or merely to limber up a few muscles, the good Doctor's setting-up exercises in the pit were certainly entertaining. There wasn't one among us though, that didn't admire and envy his extensive knowledge of anatomy and his com- mand of English and vocabulary. Then came our first day in Histology Lab. Herein we were informed by Dr. llatthews that we were "about to make an extended and prolonged foray upon the impenetrable for- tresses of histological sciencef' and we certainly were a little astounded by this new wonder. CDid I hear someone mention Silver-Tongue?D live heard it said, though it isn't mentioned publicly, that some among us had the course cinched, but the boy from Harvard left a few exams behind as a parting token. VVe can well remember his desire to weed out the plumbers and the paperhangers. But of all, the greatest memories come from ELIAS T. BOOTH, V.M.D. A S-91i8tll7lf Professor of Veterinary A nnlomy those many hours spent in Anatomy Lab. Of course we'll admit that the majority of them were olefactory in nature, but even these failed to keep Boyer awake Whenever the opportunity to snooze offered itself. VVho can forget the young love we saw blossom there, or shouldn't we speak of the deceased? Kava- naugh and Kerlin did some of their earliest collaborating there. It must have been the trials of those early years that brought them so close together. VVe can still hear Hughes, getting bawled out for cutting away "that therei' trapezieus muscle. Ah yes! It all happened in tl1e days of the mighty Baruch-who feared no man. It was here that Karl Persichetti first learned the folly of wearing a good cravat, and any one's overalls were good material on which to test a sharp scalpel. George Fleck never received the acknowledgment from the scientific world that was his due, for the discovery of that anatomical phenomena-the rectal mouse trap. Here, too, in the second year of our struggle for scientific enlightenment the student body took to the lecture platform and Kaplan and Parker made the Keystone meeting with their work on the eye and the ear. Frank Ardito lost his steam valve accompaniment in the second year and we always suspected that it disappeared into the great void of that long curved pipe of Dr. Booth's. Despite all the horse-play we were still Dr. Booth's boys and today as we look back we can all sympathize with him and admire him for the patience he possessed. All in all, our work in Anatomy, Dr. Lentz's inspiring lectures, and Dr. Booth's untiring efforts and determination to help us whenever possible, were just the start many of us needed to carry through the heavier trials we were yet to meet. G23 ANIMAL INDUSTRY COURSES URING our short, snappy, and un' eventful careers at the Veterinary School, we were exposed to several animal industry courses by Dr. Dick. These courses are similar to Animal Husbandry courses taught at state colleges and agricultural schools. It is not the purpose of these courses to make animal husbandrymen out of us, but to teach us something of the care, manage- ment, production, and feeding of all forms of livestock. I'm sure that none of us will leave our Alma iVIater and tell a farmer to feed all his livestock an apple a day to keep the horse doctor away. Nor will we innocently exclaim upon seeing a female of the ovine species of any age, '6Ah, an ewef' as did a lad in one class, when he was most brutally shaken out of the land of slumber by Dr. Dick. He was most likely counting his ewes. A brief review of all our courses during our four years would sum up to something like this: Equitatirm: Kentucky bluegrass, limestone soil, paddoeks, and barns filled up our first encounter with Dr. Dick. The horse in service, his capacity for work, the construction and management of stables, horsemanship, bits and bitting, riding and driving, seats and saddles, were all gone over in our first year. The most surprising things about the course were the six re-exams at the end of the year. Dr. Dick, you will never know how we hated to build that ideal horse farm all over again. Breeds of Livestock: This time we learned that Kiane is an old Anglo-Saxon word mean- ing cow. That Andrew and Amos Cruikshank weren't two Scotehmen on the same boat going to America, but were conservative Cas most Scotchmen arej breeders who produced the Scotch Shorthorn breed of cattle. Between Jerseys and Guernseys,Shropshires and Hamp- shires, we were in quite a maze of breeds, until we started to study for the final examina- tion. Then we were in a fog. Market Types and Classes: We now know that canners aren't men that put something into cans, but are cows, etc., that go into cans. That "hat racks" are old, thin dairy cows in the canner class, and not hooks for derbys. We learned that every nation in the world buys some part of the American hog. Our hogs must be some pigs. VVe know the difference between chuck, shank, plate, round, and loin. VVhen we come to loin, we think of dinner. hlaybe that was the reason we were always so anxious to get out that year at five minutes of the hour, Dr. Dick. GEORGE ALEXANDER DICK V.M.D, B.S. in A.H. Professor of Animal Influstry and Dean of the Faculty Stock Judging: Pleasant remembrances of the Pennsylvania Stock Yards will remain with us always. It is too bad, Dr. Dick, that you would never agree with us on our placings, you didn't seem to believe in the majority rule principle. It is a good thing for the class that there were a few men in it that had stock judging previously or else there would have been a lot of animals flattered to death, and a lot insulted to death by our amateur stock judges. The Veterinary School track carnival at the VVidener Farms, starring "Flash" Ger- berich and "Speed" Gleiser, crack milers, will also not escape our grey matter. Both men didn't look any too flashy or speedy when they got to that tape which seemed to be run- ning away from them. "Speed" Gleiser hasnft been doing any speeding since then, but that is because everywhere he goes, he sees "Go Slow" signs. I am sure the Dean will not forget that trip either, after putting his hands into his coat pockets and finding them full of sawdust. No, Dr. Dick, we didn't put any sawdust in your pockets. Nutrition: Classification of soils, soil physics, maintenance of soil fertility, classification of foodstuH's, their production, preparation, and use, and nutritional diseases comprised this year's course in our Junior year. This was our most extensive course. We did everything from plowing to building silos, and filling them. Our most difficult problem, however, was deciding how much proteins and car- bohydrates to give a cow so that she would give us a lot of milk, and not lose her shapely angles. Gone with the wind: Aeolian soil. Poultry Husbandry: Here we met up with a League of Nations in the Avian world. Spanish, Polish, Andalusian, etc., chickens were among the delegates. VVe learned how to please our fine feathered friends with nice coops, proper diets, the right kind of atmos- phere so they would give us our morning eggs. I'm sure that many of us have eaten so many eggs for breakfast during our scholastic careers that we can't look a chicken in the face. The most exciting incident that occurred in connection with this course was the unusual explosion under the hood of Dr. Dick's new car at Dr. Goldhaft's laboratories at Vineland, New Jersey.

On our trail to journey's end, we stumbled and nearly tripped on many a chromosome and gene. In algebra we learned that x X yzxy, but now they taught us that xXy: gives you a lot of weird combinations. Crossing overs and link- ages nearly caused some crossing over of the gyrgi of our cerebral grey matter. You told us, Dr. Dick, that Mendel failed his final examinations because of exhaustion, and over- worry, so please donit be angry with us if some of us should fail ours. That will prove that we were very conscientious in our extensive studies, in spite of the fact that in our first year you told us not to worry too much. It is in this final course that the so-called "rail birdsi' were at the height of their careers. Spitballs and rubber bands were the newest accessories for the study of genetics. Every- time the post mortem corps would come into class slightly belated, one was reminded of a Nazi Blitzkrieg by the goose-stepping genet- icists. Now that it is all over, I think it is only proper that we thank Dr. Dick for his ever- lasting patience with the noisy bicentennial class and the railbirdsg for his untiring efforts to teach us something about animal hus- bandry, and to hope that he doesn't get another class like us. -'Q BACTERIOLOGY OW, men, I could make this the hardest course in the school.

We will never forget the pleasant, frequently humorous, and thoroughly practical manner in which the course was presented. We will always remem- ber the sound homely philosophy woven into the lectures and be better men and better veterinarians for having had the good fortune of such a practical and erudite professor. GENERAL PATHOLOGY ROFESSOR lNIcFarland will always be remembered as the man who first ushered us into the fascinating study of morbid anatomy. The simplicity and gentle- ness of his character and his fine manner of expression will ever be remembered. In his series of three lectures a week, through- out the first term of our second year, Professor lVIcFarland strove to present us with the va- rious details of general pathology. His series of lectures covered elementary pathological processes of both retrogressive and progressive nature, inflammation, regeneration, and other vital processes 'gwhich underlie the end results studied by the morbid anatomistf' VVe still have not forgotten his excellent presentations of the Science of Teratology. The fine special lectures we received in this direction were difficult to comprehend, but nevertheless we did glean some unusual knowledge from them. VVC, of the Class of 1940, have been favored with good fortune to have been students of this distinguished professor. JOSEPH MCFARLAND, M.D., SC.D. Professor of Pathology GENERAL AND SPECIAL PATHOLOGY HE terror of the Sophomore year does not look so formidable when one ob- serves it from the vantage point of the Senior yearg however, We worried about it plenty in those dim, distant days. From the first class in Histopath. to the last in special Histopath., not a lecture went by that was not preceded by the rumor of a quiz. If one had prepared for a quiz the previous week, one came out muttering strange curses about male bovinesg if you made a good guess and were prepared, you came out smil- ing and tolerantly listened to the explanations of the slides. If you stayed long enough you could hear the slides sputteringly explained to the professor. The course, a supplement to Dr. lIaFar- land's lectures, was definitely organized and supported by a good collection of slidesg many from Nebraska, that famous research state. The set of notes accompanying the course were very helpful and labor saving. The course was ably presented from that hyperemie epi- thelium to sections "literally packed with 'toomor tisshue."' Some very fine artists were discovered among the students, although some of the boys were too bashful to bring theirs in, even after repeated urging by Dr. lVIartin. Miller and Bodine turned in beautiful drawings, but they must have worked twenty-six hours a day to keep up with the terrific pace set by Dr. Martin, which caused the nickname of '6Relentless Harryv to be bestowed upon him by one of his colleagues. POULTRY DISEASES HE course in Poultry Diseases was presented to us in the second semester of our Senior year. The form portrayed in the presentation, was similar to that of Special Pathology, by that I mean the rapidity by which the contents of the course was given. The course was given one hour a week, and was presented by Dr. Evan Stubbs, a person who has a world-wide reputation in the subject of Poultry Diseases. From what can be learned we are the only Veterinary School EVAN L. STFBBS, V.lVI.D. Professor of Veterinary Pathology in the country which receives a special course in Poultry Diseases. The theoretical content of the subject was supplemented by various forms of practical material. Specimens of various types of poultry pathology was obtainable and presented to us during the course. In the clinical laboratory, some of us were fortunate in being able to apply practical laboratory technique in the diagnosis of the various poultry dise.ases. We were very fortunate in having a man of Dr. Stubbs' ability and reputation to present this ever important course to us, and I feel sure that a great deal was gained from it. COMPARATIVE PATHOLOGY ETWEEN 12 and 1 P. NI. we dived into the realm of the unknown, visions Cmostly dreamsj of darkest Africa and distant jungles. literally teeming with wild life. An inexhaustible laboratory for the scholar of Comparative Pathology. "Lay down your pencils, sit and think for a moment of the embryological development of the turtle. Now let's compare this with that of the primitive artiodactylaf' We laid down our pencils, and sat-mostly. "Gentlemen, I don't give a -mn whether you remember a lot of this and that, but I do want you to learn to thinkf' It is a most diflicult task to teach such an extensive and important subject in one short hour each week for one semester, particularly when it included teaching us all to think. It wasn,t long before we unintentionally began to think, about eonstipated carnivores and heterozygous bastards of low fecundity fmanj. The professor warned us that 12 to 1 P. M. was a poor time to try comparing anything, except the physical condition of our stomachs and of certain relaxing classmates. Freel, Bodine, and Miller presented us with the best anatomical and physiological ex- amples of complete mental and physical re- laxation, but whether or not these could be ROBERT O. BILTZ, V.M.D. Research Assoc-iafe in Animal Palhofogy classed as pathological were not definitely determined. Now that we are through, and can look back with proper perspective, the true worth and importance of this course is revealed. Long will we remember Dr. Fox's contagious smile and infinite patience-Hour sincere thanks to a swell prof. 533 POST-MORTEM PATHOLOGY O THE clinician who wishes to in- dulge in the periodic brain dusting recommended by Osler there are few more valuable correetives than a renewed acquaintance with the facts of morbid anatomy as revealed in the post-mortem room. There is perhaps no other branch of Veteri- nary lNIedical Science which requires more acute powers of observation, interpretation, and sound knowledge than the study of Post Mor- tem Pathology. It may be truly said that a world of disordered function and altered struc- ture lies revealed in any lesion if we only have up .W 3' en.. K xx 1 -vnu. 'ff Nw.. Q-N tl , .,., if the power to observe it and the sound knowl- edge to interpret it. In the post mortem clinic and in his series of didactic lectures Dr. Martin has constantly attempted to show that the primary functions of the post mortem pathologist is not only to attribute or assign specific diagnostic terms to various lesions when he uncovers them, but to build up accurately and logically the patho- genesis of events from the earliest possible initial period of the disease to the final instant when an animal falls out of "the splendid pro- cession of lifef, The value of this course is enhanced by the fact that the principal of correlation is recog- nized. The instruction is conducted in the light of clinical findings for the purpose of correlating the subjects of the previous years with clinical medicine. Thus an attempt is made to correlate the pathological findings with the known chain of events in life. Sincere appreciation should be expressed to Dr. lilartin for his invariably courteous and helpful assistance together with the technical excellence of l1is work in the post mortem room, despite tl1e shameful lack of equipment and the impossible condition of the material. YVe shall ever remember that no time was ever too incommodious for him to furnish personal counsel to his students. L23 What makes Freshmen cry out at night? lfVhat makes Sophs blanch with fear?

From the definition of parasitology to the most recently discovered protozoa of the rec- tum of the crayfish Qdiscovered by Dr. Wein- rich-subsequently published by another inves- tigatorj, the course had us on the ropes, and somewhat in the dark as to our standings. To say it was complete is rank understatementg to say it was interesting is a matter of personal opiniong to say it was difficult is putting it mildly. It was a difficult course that required con- stant application, and it made us all quite sorry for ourselves. However, the man who really deserves the sympathy is Dr. Martin, who has to give the course every year. The subject is important to the practitioner and Pennsylvania men may well feel prepared to meet parasitological problems Cif you keep your notesj. ARTHVR H. CRJAIGE, JR., V.M.D. I nstructor in Physiology CLINICAL PATHOLOGY Honors for the course were divided between Dr. Craig on the one hand and Drs. Stubbs, Live, and Coffin on the other. It was in the course devoted to blood and fecal examination conducted by Dr. Live that we learned that sugar is not the only thing measured in spoonfulls. The course was very practical and will prove valuable to all who enter practice but the daily olfactory assault got a trifle monotonous toward the end of the allotted time. Every effort was made to furnish experience in all types of laboratory technique and Dr. Live's long-striding assistant made sure that we trilied away none of the valuable time. 53 An entirely new and perfectly delightful atmosphere prevailed in Dr. Craig's clinic. He must have studied psychology at some time for he had us all working like beavers and at the same time thinking we had little to do. The course was practical, the results obtained valuable, and held the interest of the students as attested by the number of students working afternoons on their projects. CANINE MEDICINE FEEL sure that all students look forward with great interest and enthusiasm to coming in ccntaet with Dr. Lentz. the so- called "Dean of small animal medicine and surgcryf, The course was brief in many re- spects, but with guest speakers, such as Dr. Ivens, with his talks on dogs and eats, Dr. Staley, with his illuminating remarks on Veterinary ethics in conjunction with advice in the management of a small animal practiceg and last but not least, Dr. llc-Anulty, with his demonstration of plucking tour genial Dean's scottie, which incidentally saved him ten dollarsj, and his Chinese method of restraint, namely, "fooey,', added much interest and practieability to the course. "I have long entertained the idea thatf' and "I have on my desk now, a letter received from a man in Pittsburgh," and "years ago, Dr. Barnes and If are a few of the many expressions one would hear in listening to a lecture in Canine lNIedicine. VVe once had an examination in this subject, and what a test it was! It was not very hard, but to everyone it seemed very long.

Although tl1e course was not long I feel sure that much knowledge was gained from those who took an active interest in it Cnet sneaking out and have someone answer to one's namej. If the set of notes accompanying the course were mastered, a person would be very familiar with the commoner diseases, their course and treatment. We were very fortunate in having such a learned and experienced man as Dr. Lentz to teach us this all-important array of work. The course was very practical, and whenever possible, demonstrations were given, in con- junction with the theoretical material. GENERAL SURGERY AND OB STETRICS T LONG last we were going to learn something about Surgery and Ob- stetrics. Wie all appeared for our first lecture at the scheduled hour, and we sat, then we sat and waited and waited for what seemed to be at least an hour. Along about fourteen minutes and fifty-eight or nine sec- onds after the hour Dr. Emmerson would come along through the side entrance of Room D and peer over the railing with a sly smile on his face as if to say, "VVell, you guys were fooled, Pm one second under the wiref' The ones who had already started to leave came back and we started through the roll call. How queer it sounded to hear some one call the roll starting with VVortman instead of with Anmuth and what a job we had answering at the right time. Our introduction to surgery was excellent for Dr. Emmerson took his time and stressed each point, especially those dealing with asep- sis and technique. It was here that we learned that there was a difference between sutures, suture material, ligatures, etc. Gut, chromic gut and silk were all explained and their respective uses indicated. And then one day we sat and watched some queer-looking cro- cheting, while listening to such names as Czerny-Lembert, Stewart, and many more which I never did learn. Obstetrics was a course toward which we were all looking with pleasure, and no one was disappointed. Because of the shortness of the course we were not able to go into all of the mysteries of positions, dystocias, throw- ing-afters and calf-beds, but we got a thorough grounding in the material which will stand us in good stead in practice. The laboratory section of the course with its famous phantom and pregnancies and dystocias was well liked in spite of the fact that some of the fetuses were quite Hripef, YVe can never forget the day the bag of straw was placed in the phantom with the foetus and everyone diagnosed it as a twin pregnancy. Nor can we forget the Hwindy wopv when he tore into the phantom, or the removal of the foetus by sub- cutaneous amputation. Those were the real days. VVe will long remember Dr. Emmerson for his careful and excellent teaching as well as for his willingness and ability to answer any and all of our many questions. MACK A. EMNIERSON, D.V.M. M.S., Du.

These courses are naturally among the 111ost interesting we have while here and in Dr. Iiee's lectures his frequent use of sulphanilamide in the treatment of a host of conditions has reached the point where the mere mention of the drug by Dr. Lee brings laughter from the most ardent. Heat therapy and sulfa- nilamide are as important in his armamen- tarium lipstick and nail polish ill the current 'gcutiesf' His "just one more thing and I will let you gof, and his frequent anecdotes make his course one of those that will be long remem- bered although it is debatable whether his stories are told with the purpose of waking us out of lethargy or to see if we have gone over the border to sound sleep but it is too bad we have a co-ed. Naturally Dr. EII1I1l0l'SOI1'S class is to many a more interesting and practical course. Judged by whatever standard one may choose the seats are more conducive to retrieving lost hours of the night before and the room is large enough to enable such Wastrels to get away in back and sleep unmolcsted by loud voices or the pokes and jabs of nearby friends. Here X-ray therapy is almost on a plane with sulfa- nilamide and heat in Dr. Lee's class. There is a whole lot of good practical work- ing material in both of these courses and no doubt the day will come when we will be confronted by a case that perplexes us and this we can say must have been discussed in that lecture in which we slept and hoped noth- ing important was said.

Q3 PHYSIOLOGY HYSIOLOGY, a course of study that was ushered in with no fanfare of la- ments and groans of preceding classes. Unheralded, but demanding the use of more ROGER S. AMAUON, D.Y.M. Professor of Veferfuary I'l1ysioIogy gray matter than its insidious approach would depict, we soon learned that we were no longer dealing with morbid facts but with an ever- changing interdependent complexity of organs, and systems of organs. This was our initiation into the deeper aspects of fundamental Veteri- nary llledicine, without which previous and usbsequent studies would be useless. For serio-comic relief we are indebted to the pr0fessor's deft, persistent encircling of a classmate, until he was quite hopelessly en- tangled in a mesh of contradictory answers. The humor was heightened by the good-na- tured grin after a particularly "stunning" reply. Laboratory proceedings involved close atten- tion to dangling wires and smudged charts.

PODOLOG-Y AND J URISPRU DENCE 0 IIANY, a horse walks, trots, or runs, and to many a horse still walks, trots or runs, except when he doesn't. That a horse would paddle and strike and forge, and stand under and about a hundred other things, all while in the process of keeping twice as many feet as we use from getting all tangled up, was a surprise that we were not well pre- pared for. But Dr. Lee held forth on just this subject, and proved that such things do happen. When talking about horses, and their ills, words fall from VV. Jfs lips faster than bullets from a machine gun, and unless Dr. Lee slows down, he is going to find himself without any- thing to say, and that will be a tragedy. The peculiar part is that he talks fast and furiously, and yet always has something worth while saying, even if he does tell some anecdotes of amazing latitude. Even under his rapid fire, our professional sleepers were able to take their rest only a little more fitfully than in more slumberous lectures.

This lowered the incidence of cutting for a couple of days, and then off it would go again. No one ever worried about overcuts, though, and we imposed on him, but he just wouldn't report anyone. Dr. Lee's jurisprudence dealt more with the tricks of horse gyps and we all were kept awake by his narratives of these men.

BECK, V.M.D. Professor of Vefcrilmry .'lIer11'e1'r1c I' Q33 MEDICINE HE course of Medicine was presented to our class in an installment manner, by that, I mean in an interrupted schedule. Uur class began Medicine or Phy- sical Diagnosis in the last semester of our Sophomore year, and was presented by Dr. John Beck, being supplemented by practical demonstrations. At that time Dr. C. J. Blar- shall was living, but unfortunately we never received any personal instruction from that great man, much to our regret. I feel sure that a great amount of knowledge was obtained from that course, which aided or prepared us for our clinics which we began our following semester. In our first semester of our Junior year, we continued on our exploit of hfcdicine, but due to certain circumstances, we were unable to continue. VVe picked it up again in the second semester of the same year Cwithout a definite professor, so to speakb, but it was not long before we made the acquaintance of Dr. H. K. Royer, who as the baby of the faculty, put some life in it. Some, it is said, did not think a great deal of the contents of the course, by that I mean the guest lectures. I do not know how much was gained by the student in this experiment, but I understand that a similar schedule was not followed this year. iNIaybe too much Aconite was spilled last year. In our Senior year we began where we left off, the course being presented in a different manner. INIany amusing and interesting in- cidents took place during this period, such as hog chlora discussions, and there was a time when a certain person Cnot mentioning any namesl was sent to the front of the room be- cause he was being disturbed by others. All in all, I feel sure that a great amount was learned by us in the course in INIedicine, and that all of us enjoyed the relationship of two grand individuals, namely, Dr. Beck and Dr. Boyer, and as a class we hope that success abides with them in the future. Q3 CLINICS ITH the advent of our third year we were allowed in the clinics without being greeted by the business end of a hose. Clinics were divided into small animals and large animal medical and sur- gical. VVe spent three weeks per semester in each clinic. During our Junior year we served HARRY K. RUYER, Y.NI.D. Inspector in Veferilzary .'lfefI1'c1'I1e as assistants for the Seniors and we usually had two. As Seniors we were greatly out11un1- bered by a brazen lot of Juniors who ran things their own way. Fields, Hughes, and burly Fleck were the only Seniors to see an operation all year, although it is reported that Parker and Spielholtz once wormed cleverly through the maze of legs and planked their respective noses on the operating table CSpeil- holtz had all the better of thisj. SMALL ANIMAL CLINIC The Veterinary School is justly noted for its small animal clinic. The volume and variety of cases and the ability of the staff have won national recognition for the clinic. The student had many opportunities and the staff was always willing to listen to and discuss sug- gested treatments, although one had to be a good runner to talk to Dr. Sheidy more than thirty seconds at a time. There were the usual number of complaints about roll call, perscriptiondemons, and soft. trodding staff members with the "abrupt approach." It is regrettable that more time was not available for helping in Dr. Lentz's clinic as it was a pleasure to watch the old master treat the cases and handle the clients. LARGE ANIMAL CLINIC Large animal surgery clinic was conducted principally by Dr. Lee. Drs. Emmerson and Able were usually around to help as they went about their x-ray duties. It was a distinct and valuable privilege to work with Dr. Lee and we will long remember his witty remarks, love of an argument, and wide knowledge of equine problems. VVe feel that Dr. Lee's tem- perament is improving with age as he only Hred Joe sixteen times this year. IVe will never for- get Dr. Lee's admonishments to those un- fortunate enough to make a mistake and be caught Cneither will those admonishedj. lVe all share Dr. Leeis lament of the frequent scarcity of cases and agree that a school am- bulance would do much to remedy this serious weakness in the large animal clinical set-up. LARGE ANIMAL MEDICAL Conducted by Drs. Beck, Royer and Fish, this proved a very interesting clinic. Through the cooperation of the Department of Public Wlorks we usually had some cases and when we didn't the time was occupied in the teach- ing of those many everyday operations of prac- tice, that one must actually do, to master. lVe restrained animals, passed stomach tubes.

Other famous cases were the old eorse with partial paraplegia and the thorough- bred mare who got colic and had to be aborted. AMBULATORY CLINIC This clinic served m.any purposes, it gave us valuable experience in diagnosis and treat- ment, served to break the routine of school and furnished an excuse for absence from class for, "he's ambulatinf' is a familiar answer to the name of an absent--member. W'e always looked forward to and enjoyed the trips. Some of the more fortunate got to go to hfaryland and wherever we went the work was always fully explained and done by the students wherever possible. It was on these trips that we got to know what a really fine man Dr. Beck is. VVe talked of many things, veterinary, and otherwise. VVQ all learned how to play chess and even though Dr. Beck always won we learned to play wisely, if not well. The clinic car usually ran very well but there were times when We were on skates before we got back. 2 2:3 J ,NM H ww ,,.,...-v---Q Miss EDMA W.

HYGIENE This portion of Veterinary Medicine has a bearing on the health of every person in a civilized country. Through the medium of rigid inspection of all meat and dairy products by Veterinarians working under local, state or federal supervision, the lives and welfare of all are protected. Not only are the finished products carefully watched but also the conditions under which they were pro- duced and the animals from which they were produced. Without this important phase of Veterinary Science the high standards of living of the present would be impossible.

Tuition, of course, is unthought of-our congenial Dean arranges to have every student receive a maximum amount of knowledge at a minimum monetary expenditure. In the event that any student needs more than the allotcd quota of money he may obtain more by requesting the Dean to furnish the same. Every student will be required to stay in bed until at least 11 A. II. of every day. All classes will start at noon and end at 2 P. BI. of the same day, Saturday and Sunday ex- cluded. Our professors will hold lectures dur- ing the designated hours and will ask the per- mission of the class to lecture. In the event that any lecturer offends a student, the student may correct the wrong done him on the last day of each school year by dressing the pro- fessor in red and turning him loose in Huide- kooper Field with a mad bull. For those stu- dents wishing practical experience in Opera- tive Surgery, Obstetrics, and the like, we will have a large number of animals which may be used for such purposes-all furnished by the Dean, of course. Following dismissal of classes there will be held the coffee hour from 2 to 3 P. HI. in the Dean's office, with Bliss Teuter as the head hostess, assisted by Bliss Samuels and Bliss Nyce. For those unable to wait until this time to appease their appetites there is a free lunch counter where once stood the bookstore in the Students, Room. Those students wishing social activities along with his work may easily obtain the same through the medium of Earl Carroll's Chorus Girls, who are employed here as nurses in both the large and small animal hospitals. There are no quizzes during the school year, and no final examinations. It will be taken for granted that every student knows every- thing. For the graduating Seniors our Place- ment Bureau has a list of open jobs and prac- tices, all paying more than 315,000 a year, and any of which may be had for tl1e asking.
