DOCTORS TI RS , Ol'T 15 FORCE
Almost a Hnndred Attend Ftrat Day
The opening aesslons yesterday of the
eighteenth annual meeting of the Medical
Sootety of the Missouri Valley were marked
by an attendance of close upon 100 mem
bers, the largest for several years. ' Owing
to the late arrival of many of the out-of-town
members U) . opening session was
postponed from the morning until after
noon and a short, session was held in the
evening before the members boarded the
oars for Lake Manawa, where the visitors
were the guests of the local medics at a
smoker. The opening aeaslon waa called to
order by Dr. V. L. Treynor of thla city,
chairman of the committee on artange
ments, and a short address of Welcome
was made by Mayor Macrae In hla dual
capacity as chief executive of the mu
nicipality and member of the society. Dr.
William Jepson of Sioux City, president of
the Iowa' State Medical society, made ' a
happy response and then the meeting set
tled' down to business such as the reading
of reports of the several committees and
other routine work. The election of of
ficers, however, was postponed until 11
o'clock this morning.
A particularly Interesting feature of the
operlng session waa the annual address of
the president. Dr. 8. Grover Burnett of
Kansas City, who took for his subject
"Oslerism Bearded; or, a Study of Age in
Relation to Work." In Introducing his sub
ject Dr. Burnett aald:
I am proud to know that an organization
so great, active and Influentital as the Med
ical Society of the Missouri Valley disdains
folltloal Intrigues and cllgues !n.lts execu
lve management. It gives her members
not only the stamp of workers for the best
Interests of the society, but the stamp of
gentlemen allied In a thoughtful and com
mon cause. In other words. It Indicates
that we are still thinking, and that we
have not yet reached the Oslerlan epoch
of the "comparative uselessness" of men
above 40 years of age, and that none of
us are nearlng a peaceful departure by
We know that man's tissues hsve their
greatest compensatory powers up to 35
and 40; at this age they stand the greatest
steam pressure. Also that giving away of
tissues, resulting In palsied status prior to
40 years of age Is due to causes other than
age. Tltese are problems which tell the
physloligical truth and to which the gen
erality of man must bow submissively.
Accepting these facts. Is there proof of
the "comparative uselessness of man after
40 years of age?" In a few caes I would
say yes. but In general I would say posi
tively no. The methods of achieving men
tal work undergo changes. The pne -s
been devoted to storing thought and : he
tangible shaping of thought Into fort- by
that great teacher, experience. At the time
when thought and experience are on equal
ity the method of work is changed from
mental storing to mental output. To cut
a man off at 40 would be to cut h's ac
comnllshmetits In two. The vslue of the
first half of his life is enhanced by origi
nality of thought, ambition and enthusi
asm; but the last half depends upon that
keen cut knowledge, the essence, the alia
loldsl product, known as exnerlenee that
lends dellcscy of shade, tint and color,
making a plrture of life before which we
all pause In reverential meditation. It Im
presses us; It Is complete.
Basins our reasoning upon the physlologle
rise and te patbelogle recession, can we
sav that the world in seneral would lose
