Martin orders his office equipment from the New Idea Instrument and Furniture Company, whose  vice-president is his former preceptor, Dr. Roscoe Geake. He rejects the recommended  Tonsillectomy Outfit but includes a steel stand, a sterilizer, flasks, test tubes, and a combined  examining chair and operating table. A new plate glass sign with gold lettering reads: "M.  Arrowsmith, M.D." He and Leora are in ecstasies. His own surgical case, including dental forceps, he  had brought from Zenith. His first office patient is Nils Krag, with an ulcerated tooth that is extracted. A five-year-old Ford is acquired for making country calls. Leora also learns to drive it, but it is Martin  who becomes the demon driver of the village. Pete Yesta, the local druggist, is antagonized when Martin criticizes his inaccuracy in filling  prescriptions. Thereafter Martin has to prepare his own medicines or obtain them from St. Paul.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
