As
the
New
Year
unfurls
its
hiddensecrets,
shouldwe
not an-
ticipate withenthusiasmthemysteries
whichwill
become
known
to
us?
Duringthe
New

may
we
all
seek
to
be
able
to acept allour duties,
to
per-form
well
our labors,to
welcome
all mercies,
to
meetall
trials,
and
to advance
through
all
that
1954
holds in
store
for
us
with
cheerful courageand
a
constant
mind.
May
we
develop
self-con-
fidencein our

and

termination
in

possible
the opportunities
which

and
to
work
harderfor

whichwill
mean
so
much to all.
With

on

the

more-

the
following
statement;"I

to

The

that
"osteopaths
should

'Stop
Fighting
D.O.'s'
SIRS:
Our
fightagainst
the
D.O.'s seems only
to
have
strengthened
their
cause.
Re-
cently,
for
example,theWest
Virginia
Supreme
Court ruled
that
osteopaths have
the
same
rights
as
M.D.'s.Maybe
this
will
convince
some
die-hardphysicians
that
we'd
better
call
off
the
dogs
and
start
cooperating.

Russell
McCaughan,
D.O.,
Executive
Secretary
of
the
A.O.A.
says-"Eighty-seven
per
cent
of
D.O.'s
are
under
sixtyyears
of age.
"Sixty-nine
per
cent
of
Freshmen
in
Osteopathic
col-
leges
have
A.B.
degrees.
"Thereare
286
more
A.O.A.
members
this
year
than
last.
"Distribution
of
D.O.'s,
geographically,is
not
good
and
here
are
some
of
the
reasonswhy:
1.
They
go
where
the
laws
are
favorable.
2.
They
go
where
population is
most
dense.
3.
They
tend

avoid

DEAN'S
LETTER
Personality
Plus
Personality
is a
quality
whichispossessed by everyone.
It
may
be
active
or
dormant.
It
may pass
from the dormant stage
to
the
active
stage
in
the
space
of
ayear
orof
fifty
years.Personality
isevaluated
by
to-
tal strangers
as
frequently
as
by
one's
close
friends,
acquaintancesand
relatives.Personality
is
judgedin tele-
phone
conversations by switch-board
operators and
by
parties
at
the other
end of
the
line.
Personality
is
observed
by
thewaiters
in
the
restaurant,
the
bellhop
in
the
hoteland the
of-
fice personnel.
Personality
is
judged
by
thestudent
and
by
the
instructor.
Personality
is
rated
by
theparents
and
by
the
children
in
the family
andby
the next
door
neighbors.
Personality
isestablished
by
observersin
the
home,
the
office,
the
social
functions,
the railroad
train
and
everywhere
that
peo-
ple
congregate.
Personality has
many
facets.
No
two
people
see
the
samefacet
of
one's
personality.The
old
adage
says,
"See
yourself
asoth-
ers
see
you."
Everyone
can,
withslight
effort,
improve
the
person-
ality
of
the
man in
the
mirrorand
can
attain
the
status
of
hav-
ing
personality
plus.
