Surviving are his widow, the former Mathilde Jermundson, whom he married in 1900 at Duluth, Minnesota, and two children, William L. Schulze and Mrs. Phyllis Main. William L.

It brought him the affection and loyal support of chiropractors. They recognized him as a true heart and a willing and able worker for the profession.
At the funeral services, Dr. Horace Bridges, who presided, spoke of Dr. Schulze's death, not as the end of life, but as the completion of a job. Dr. Schulze had visioned what was lacking in Chiropractic and set about to supply the need. He worked to build a Chiropractic school, teaching a broad Chiropractic discipline - not only in basic training but also in drugless therapeutics. The National College of Chiropractic and its present course in Chiropractic and Drugless Therapy is evidence that he succeeded. The institution he built is a fitting memorial to a full, useful and noble life.
As Chiropractic grew after the death of D.D. Palmer, so the broad concept of Chiropractic and Drugless Therapy, advanced by Dr. Schulze, will find increasing favor and acceptance as time goes on. The National College of Chiropractic is pledged to continue faithfully his ideals and to uphold the sound and progressive policies that have gained an enviable reputation for that institution under his able leadership. Thousands of chiropractors who were his students will carry throughout their lives the inspiration and instruction imparted by this brilliant teacher. The entire profession bows its head at the inestimable loss of this great and good man and courageous professional leader.

for Joy M. Loban, D.C.:
A neat little brochure came to hand today, no doubt designed to console friends insofar as possible; our friend and teacher, Joy M. Logan, passed from our midst on July 15, 1936, at Burbank, California.
Joy M. Loban, a sincere exponent of Chiropractic, died at the age of forty-nine years, primarily as the result of an accident, secondarily, as the result of crude, massive adjustment of the sacrum from posterior aspect.
Dr. Loban began his professional career in 1909 as an instructor of palpation and Chiropractic technique, and it will be interesting to know that it was he who initiated the practice of counting vertebrae, a radical departure in those times from dependence upon an appreciation of sectional spinal distortions only.
Dr. Loban blazed the way to a consideration of diagnosis as a necessary subject in the Chiropractic student’s training. He was dean of the faculty of the Universal Chiropractic College when I enrolled as the rawest of freshman rookies, was a rigid taskmaster, but was always honest in his Chiropractic convictions.
He has written several books, “Chiropractic Technique,” a really scientific compilation of that time, and his “Neurology,” which surpasses anything of its kind within the realm of Chiropractic texts even today, among others.
Dr. Loban joined the faculty of the Universal Chiropractic College in 1910, later effected the amalgamation of that school and the Pittsburgh College of Chiropractic, which he managed successfully for
