As a small boy I recall sitting near the front of the room in a rural school with my legs swinging vigorously several inches from the floor, and listening while a large group of older boys and girls attempted to recite the names of the bones of the body as well as many other parts. The class appealed to me principally because it seemed to give great pain to the participants, and because it was still a long way off so far as I was concerned. With much less glee do I recall the time a few years later when I was promoted to the class in which I aim was supposed to learn physiology.
