Anatomy Made Easy.
We do not think much of Otago-made doctors. " Unless the medical students are apter men than those who stake their | reputation on arts we pity their patients, i But something worse remains to be said, j As we pointed out a few days ago, considerable f discussion is taking place jin Ofcagoas'to the failure of Otago University students as compared with those;in other parts of the colony. Sir Robert Stout has come to the rescue of his alma matter: * jHesays the reason is that Otago's best students betake themselves to the study of medicine. That is all very well, but to this contention a writer in a Dunedin paper gives a crushing retort. He says that " cribbing " is the order of the day at the medical examinations, owing to the want 1 of supervision. He then tells , a story of an enterprising student of. the Otago Medical School. The night before an anatomical examination one' student climbed through a window, and had a look at the bones that' were to be the 1 subject of next day's examination." ' His exploit performed, he described them, to his fellow, budding .medicos. ■We . suppose they all passed with high honors. Fancy a lot of such sawbones being let loose oh a confiding public. Evidently there are a good many screws loose about the Otago University [College.—" Christchurch Telegraphl" , ■
