Resident Physicians

NEAR the termination of the year, competitive examinations are
given to those Seniors who may desire an internship in the Hos-
pital. Xot alone is the student chosen by his grade on the exam-
ination, but by his attitude while treating in the clinics, and during his
Senior internship as found acceptable by a faculty committee. These
Physicians are put on the various services as General, Surgical, Obstetrical,
and Laboratory Diagnosis, and much practical knowledge is gained in the
work of these departments.

One or two, showing the greatest interest in the work, may be held
over as Senior Presidents for the following year at the end of which time,
they may take the Surgical Board Examinations.

The College Fraternity

Dr. J. Ivan Dufur

THERE is, perhaps, no phase of college life about which there has
been so much discussion as the question of whether the intro-
duction of fraternities or sororities into the college has been
beneficial or harmful. It is not the purpose in this discussion to take
side in any debate because fraternities and sororities are with us, and,
because of the many good results derived from them they are likely
to remain.

It is, beyond question, important that the student who is giving
many hours each day to the serious consideration of problems before
him should have some good wholesome method of relaxation. It is also
extremely important from the college standpoint that the highest morale
should be maintained at all times among the whole student body. It
is further important that the student who is away from his home, per-
haps in many cases isolated from many of his friends, should find
something to compensate for that element of his life that he has laid
aside or lost for the time being.

The fraternity or the sorority seems to meet all the necessities
outlined above, and for this reason, if for no other, is bound to remain
as a permanent institution in almost every college. It is extremely
natural that men and women associate themselves with other men and
women who meet the demand as their ideals. It was in this way that
the first fraternity was formed. College men who were congenial
banded themselves together, in the first instance, largely for the purpose
of helping each other in the advancement of their college work. In
this way groups of men were formed who banded themselves together
with a common purpose. Gradually, the purpose of these groupings
were enlarged until today we find the average fraternity and sorority
occupying a large field in the student life. In most cases it gives him
a home in which there is a home atmosphere. It gives him association
among people that are wholesome. It gives him an opportunity to prac-
tice the spirit of brotherhod. It gives him the aid of his fellow mem-
bers. It enables him to bear the lonesomeness of separation from his
own home and it gives him inspiration for the development of his col-
lege work to its highest point.

All of this is true if the fraternity or sorority is of the right kind.
It is granted that these fraternities or sororities whose ideals are not
the kind outlined above might be the cause of a great deal of injury
to the student and should not be countenanced.

Without attempting to enumerate them, the writer is glad to say
that he feels that the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy has fraterni-
ties and sororities whose ideals seem to be of the highest type and all
of whom are working for the advancement and development of the
College and of Osteopathy. For this reason, if for no other, it would
seem that these fraternities have wielded a good influence in the college
life in this institution and their future growth should be fostered by
the authorities of the college.

Inter-Fraternity Council

IN ORDER that the fraternities and sororities of the college might
work as one for the advancement of Osteopathy, an Inter-Fra-
ternity Council was established, composed of representatives of
each organization. This group deals with problems of interest to
the fraternities and passes the rules governing rushing and pledging.
It also tends toward a better understanding between the men in each
society.

THE active members of the Neo Senior Society each year elect
men from the junior class to succeed them. These men must,
in addition to their regular curricular work, have taken an active
interest in the extra curricular life at the college. In the past this
society has sponsored many athletic meets, bringing to this city men of
world repute as athletes, thereby broadcasting the word "Osteopathy''
throughout the land. It is societies like this that materially aid in the
advancement of the profession.

Membership is limited to ten men in each senior class and the
notification of their election is given to them during their junior year
sometime during the Junior Prom.

FOR the purpose of creating an added interest in Obstetrics, and to
give an added opportunity for a deeper study of the art, a so-
ciety, sponsored by Dr. E. G. Drew was established in 1925.
This was given the name, "The E. G. Drew Obstetrical Society."
Regular monthly meetings are held at which time papers, prepared by
the members, are read. When Dr. Drew is present he either discusses
some topic of interest, bringing out little points discovered through
his own wide experiences of practice, or conducts sections on practical
work that prove profitable to all. The student body is invited to at-
tend these meetings and the junior students who are interested in be-
coming elected to the society are requested to be there. Membership
is gained by submitting a written thesis on some topic selected by
Dr. Drew.

7\[ewman Club



IN 1893, m honor of Cardinal Newman, the first Newman Club was
founded at the University of Pennsylvania. Now there are more
than two hundred clubs in the various universities and colleges
throughout the United States and Canada. The purpose of this
organization is to band together the students of the Catholic faith in
an endeavor to further the ideals of Catholicism, to foster scholastic
achievement, to bring about good fellowship between the Catholic
students and the others, and to provide in a measure a means of social
activity for the members.

The Axone

THE Axone is a publication by and for the student body. It presents
entirely student material and aims to record college activities and
set forth the student viewpoint and reaction. Professional subjects,
verse, and humor, also by student writers, appear in its pages. The new
size of the Axone this year has added to its attractiveness and makes it
easy to preserve each number as a memento of student affairs.

Physiological Chemistry Society

President — Guy W. Merryman
Vice-president — Lester Mellot
Secretary and Treasurer — Paula N. Elias
Faculty Adviser — Professor Russel C. Ere
Honorary Member — Dr. Enrico C. Vergara
Active Members— Class of 1930

At a meeting of the Class of 1930 on May 7, 1928, it was unanimously
voted that the class sponsor and organize a Physiological Chemistry So-
ciety. By this action, the class brought into existence an organization,
whose purpose will be to promote and stimulate scientific thought and re-
search in physiological chemistry as related to Osteopathic principles. So
as not to limit its freedom or hamper its originality, it was decided to or-
ganize without undue formality, the constitution and by-laws to be formu-
lated as the society developed and progressed. Those of the Class of 1930
expressing and showing active interest were to constitute the charter
members. Future members were to be from the succeeding classes and only
those students whose average in the subject of Physiological Chemistry was
above 85 per cent and who could show some record of having done acceptable
research work of interest to the organization were to be accepted.

Professor Russel C. Erb was elected Faculty Adviser. It was through
the excellence of his lectures in Chemistry and his inspiring enthusiasm foi
the subject that sufficient interest in Osteopathic Bio-Chemistry was stim-
ulated to the point of organizing this Society.

Dr. Enrico Vergara was elected an honorary member. As director
of the Clinical Laboratory and a practising physician, he brings to our
Society a knowledge of the practical application of Bio-Chemistry and can
direct our work along channels which will be of the greatest benefit to the
patient.

Since life consists of physicochemical processes and the study of disease
must be the study of coincident physicochemical phenomena in the liv-
ing, the scope of our work will include the related sciences of Biology,
Bacteriology, Pathology, Histology, Dietetics, Psychiatry, etc. The knowl-
edge of these fields will all have to be called upon as physicochemical pro-
cesses is the basis of all of them.

At the several enthusiastic meetings held during the year, two lines
of investigation and research were suggested :

1. Original Research — A study will be made of the normal chemical
action and "composition of the physiological chemical processes of life.
This will include the improvement of old and the developement of new
methods of clinical analysis. Some of the members of the present Soph-
omore class have done some very interesting work along these lines.

2. Applied Research — From the knowledge gained in the original re-
search, it will be demonstrated on clinic patients the changes which specific
Osteopathic treatment will make in normalizing body fluids, secretions and
