Hutchinson News Sunday, Sept. 12, 1971 Page 11 By MILLIE ADDISON " 'That's the way Doc did it,' was the comment of nearly everyone when they were relating stories to me about Dr. 'Hertzler, so it was the logical title for the book," stated Mrs. Bill Mayfield 1 , Halstead, author of the cartoon tribute to "The Horse and Buggy Doctor," Arthur E. Hertzler, M.D. Mrs. Mayfield is the art teacher at Buhler High School and also did the drawings for the book. "It has been a tradition since I have lived in Halstead, for me to do the paintings and art work on the windows of the Halstead stores for the annual Old Settlers celebrations. "The Doc, or the Chief, as people called him, would have been 100 years old on July 26, 1970, and the Old Settlers Day that year was named "The Arthur E. Hertzler Day" in his honor. I painted episodes of his Mfe on the windows, with a little historical background printed about each picture." "That's the Way Doc Did It" is a reproduction of- 30 of these window paintings. "The book is a 'folksy' type of thing — art caricature rather than realistic — and really is a community book and not mine, as the banker, librarian and nearly everyone in Halstead had a part in the research I was doing, along with his widow, Dr. Irene Koenecke, who still practices at the clinic. Proceeds for Research "Older people told stories about him, and many of the ideas came from his book 'The Horse and Buggy Doctor,' which is an account of his life. "The Hertzler Research Foundation put the book together and it is sold at the Kansas Health Museum for $5. The proceeds from the book go into research at the Foundation. Dr. Hertzler was a top physician— I would have admired him, but probably found him hard to get along with. "The book tells how poor Dr. Hertzler was as a young doctor, who owned a horse, but not a buggy to make his calls — who borrowed a pocket knife from a passing fanner for an emergency operation — - and about the Crow's Nest, the farm home of the Hertzlers' which was built around a large tree." The Mayfields have three sons, Michael, age 9, Brandon, j, and Kent, who is 2. Along .vith teaching at the high school, Mrs. Mayfieldl teaches a weekly adult art class in Halstead. Her work has been shown in art fairs and state fairs. "My work is mostly involving people—a large oil I painted is a personal protest to the war in Vietnam—another is a series of old people who are starving. Stages of an Embryo "This summer I did a cast bronze and welded iron sculpture of a large pea pod fillet with stages of an embryo, anc another of a very realistic em >ryo inside a gas meter — like I her art students are going to a space age baby with lots of ubes—very modern." Mrs. Mayfield was graduated from Hutchinson Community College and the University of Oregon at Eugene. She ; taught art, for four years hi Oregon and started her fourth year at Buhler High School this fall. "Teaching junior high school students was fun, but 1 find teaching high school students more exciting — their work is a higher quality. You give them an idea and they take it from there — it is harder though, as you have to find things that appeal to them. It is real rewarding." Mrs. Mayfield and two of paint the windows of the businesses in Buhler for the October 2 Frolic Day. "It will be a historical thing — something tha will interest the local people and the general public. The com munity has a typically German and Mennonite background, and there should be many interesting things to display and work from. "I feel Marvel Senti, the art consultant in the Hutclianson schools, influenced me the most in becoming an art teacher. She was my art instructor in junior college, and even in grade school, I lived for the day she came to my schoolroom."
