DENTIST FILES PETITION
TO OUST BOARD MEMBER
Dr. E. V. Rupert Alleges Conspiracy
TIIENTON, Jan 25.-A petition for tho
rcmovnl of Dr. Vernon D. Hood from
the New Jersey Board of Registration
nnd nxnmlnatlon In Dentistry was filed
today with Governor ricldcr by Dr
Reginald Wyo Rupert, of S10 South Broad
street, a grndunto of the University of
Tennsylv mla Dental School. Dr. Rupert
tells a startling story of the alleged efforts
of Dr. Rood to prevent his practicing as
a dentist in Now Jorsoy. Ho has nli
filed a complaint with tho Prosecutor of
Mercer County, accusing Dr. Rood of con
spiracy to keep him out of the profes
slon Dr. Rood lives In Morrlstown, N. J.
Dr Rupert, who was graduated from
tho University of Pennsjlvnnla In 1913, de
clares that Dr Rood "flunkod" him twice
In order to please an enemy of his. That
lite failure to pass tho examination, was
duo to spite was shown, Dr. RuperPae
clares, In tho result of another examina
tion ho took lntor under an assumed name.
In this test, unsuspected by Dr. Rood, Dr.
Rupert says his papers were certified as
correct. When Dr. Rood learned Dr.
Rupert had passed the examination he
grow nngry and declared Dr. Rupert was
unfit to be a dentist, It Is alleged.
Dr. Rood had chargo of the examina
tions in histology, nnatomy and physi
ology. Twice, after being examined In
these studies, Dr. Rupert's papers were
marked delllclent, ho alleges. In tho other
tests ho passed Then he resolved to try
to outwit Dr. Rood. In June, after mak
ing an arrangement with Miss Wllhel
mlna Do Mercicr, an employe of the Stato
Board, ho appeared for examination, hold
ing the card of a Now York dentist. Dr.
Rood examined his examination papers
and pissed him. Since then Dr Rupert
has been practicing In Trenton. He Bays
that he was forced to work for an auto
mobile tire company because he was un
able to get a dentist's license In New
U. OF P. OFFICIALS WILL NOT
PROBE HAZING EPISODE
Name of Injured Fieshman Mysteri
ously Erased at Hospital.
Sophomores responelblo for the Injury
of Roland Israel, a freshman, during a
hazing bee at tho University of Penn
sylvania Friday, will escape punishment,
as thero will be no Investigation.
This "was the statement made today by
Provost Kdgar T. Smith. There Is no
rule against hazing, Provost Smith said,
and Israel's parents were not anxious to
have the sophomores punished.
Israel fell two floors over tho banisters
In, College Hall Frldnv night trying to
escape from a band of sophomores who
had Just tied him with a rope.
An effort was mado to keep the acci
dent a secret. Some one erased Israel's
name from the accident book at tho Unl
versitv Hospital. Investigation today
showed that a scraping had been mado on
the page containing records for Friday
night, with tho result that one entry was
Illegible. On examination It was seen
that "U" and "I" remained ns the Initial
letters of the patient's name. Hospital
authorities professed Ignorance when they
were questioned about the erasure. Miss
Helen Hayes, the acting superintendent.
Insisted she would "not bo cross-examined,"
Dr. William Strode, tho resident
physician, said any erasure on the rec
ords would havo to hnvo been ordered by
the University authorities. Ho suggested
that they might know about It.
Provost Smith was then questioned. "I
don't know anything about the erasure,"
he said. "That Is up to tho hospital. I
didn't give any orders to take Israel's
name off tho honk. It must have been
done nt the hospital."

nbout me being a bicholor Is simply this
I never took the glorious tlmo to court,
always being fond of out-door sports In
my younger das, much to my sorrow
"If I had the golden opportunity to go
over tho samo course, why I certainly
would take tho paradise routo to matri
mony. I cheerfully ndvise my joung men
friends to hasten this sublime moment
Just ns soon as they arrive at tho ago
of manhood "
"Thcio Is no place In the wide, wide
world like a place you can call your own
sweet home Tho renson why I stay sin
gle nt the present Is because I am living
with n Bister, who is so good and kind
nnd takes the place of mother, but Just
ns soon ns tho Lord calls her away, then
a wife for me. No more single, lonesome
blessedness for mine "
During tho controversy between Doctor
Cook nnd Peary over the discovery of tho
North Pole, Mr Toomey expressed him
self on the subject In poetry. Tho poem
read as follows:
Who's tho llcoerer nf thn Pole?
Is the nuemlon nhlch achates mankind.
rtary's asuertlno plncp Cook In n hole,
But Cook's modemy Implies sunshine.
Children whose mothers patronize Mr.

who take delight In reciting "Sweet Ma

"Sweet Mario" reads llko this:
On the bushes, long and deep.
The busy bees never sleep.
They're on the Job for keeps
To see that their honey goes to "3et Marie '
