Denial School Golf Tournament Qualifying Date Extended [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
Denial School Golf Tournament Qualifying Date Extended by FRED SOARES Due to mid-terms, bad weather and the usual time-consuming routine of school an insufficient number of golfers have qualified for the tournament to date. Therefore, the qualifying date has been extended to April 15. This means that you have the first two weeks of April to play your qualifying round and the last two weeks to play your final two rounds. It's a tight schedule, but it's also a good excuse to get away from the hectic life and pressure of school. The qualifiers will be placed in four flites ac- cording to their qualifying rounds. Roos Bros, is donating trophies for the winners of each flite. The last two rounds will be added to the qualifying round and the lowest totals will determine the winners in each flite. Ties will be played off by an extra round. The tournament ends April 29 so get out to any of the three courses (Hardin!. Park, Lincoln Park, or Sharp's Park) and start swinging! Submit your score...
Bacchus Medicalis [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
Bacchus Medicalis by ANN POPE April 12th is the big date! That's when a new King Bacchus will reign over the Bth annual Bacchus Medicalis. His court will convene, appropriately enough, in the Royale Room of the Hotel Richelieu. This dance of all dances boasts a King elected from candidates representing various fraternities and living groups. For eight years, the Associated Students of the Medical Center have sponsored this semi-formal spring dance. Bacchus, meaning the Greek god of wine, is the traditional theme, and many a "winetaster" will vie for the title. From nine 'til one, Phil Bovero's orchestra will be playing, with accompanying liquid refreshments for every one. The $4.00 Bid per couple, will be sold at the book store and by class representatives. This bid includes all refreshments for the evening.

Student Council Meets To Solve Medi-Cal Dilemma [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
Student Council Meets To Solve Medi-Cal Dilemma by JERRY DUGGER If you read no other article in this paper, you must read this! ft may seem strange that such a small item as the lack of student support of Medi-Cal sales this year could mean, potentially, the end of the many student activities on this campus. Activities which we all take for granted. These however are the facts. The source of funds for these activities is mainly, the $2 refund on A.S.U.C. Berkeley student body cards purchased by Med. Center students. Due to the steadily decreasing interest in the rather phlegmatic Berkeley sports program since 1951, card sales on this campus have resulted in less and less revenue. With our own student body's increase in number and the coincident decreasing age of our students, interest in our own activities has meant a steady increase in our spending. Thus in recent years we have gone from an operating fund in excess of $3500. to our present fund of $1200. The cost of this year's big...

Emphasis will be placed upon current developments and experiments contributed by our own U. C. Medical Center and staff.

Dental School Elections [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
Dental School Elections by PEGGY STELLER Spring- , finals , vacation , a new Fall semester , but wait! Where are the new plans and ideas? Who's going to carry them out? Let's go hack to the Dental School student body election in the Spring of 1957. Who were the personalities? What were some of the issues up for debate? In looking into the background of the two presidential candidates, a common ground exists on which a comparison may be built. Both candidates, JIM DAWSON and DICK JENNINGS are married and have a family of two children, five years or under. Each has served his time in the Armed Services, and upon discharge has ensued dentistry as his profession. But here the similarities end, for each is an individual—a personality!

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
EDITORIAL Two years ago the students within the College of Dentistry started a little sax&gt;p sheet called the "Hy-Dent." Perhaps many of you in the other schools have seen it. The "Synapse" is a direct result of this humble mimeographed beginning. The paper is now concerned with the lives and activities of everyone on this campus —students, faculty and non-academic personnel —all 3800 of you. All school presidents have been notified about the "Synapse" and we soon hope to have more participation from the other schools. The paper is a monthly for the remainder of this semester, but beginning next fall, we plan to bring it out bi-monthly. Effort on the paper has been organized to a point where each person's job is limited to 2 to 3 hours time per month. Each job is specific and no conferences or meetings need be attended. A complete charter is now being drafted by your executive council and should be completed by the end of this semester. The paper is designed to provide a m...

BILLBOARD REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
BILLBOARD REVIEW b y BOB NEWMEYER This section is presented as a condensation of material posted on the bulletin boards which may be of interest to the dental student. Bacchus The biggest and "bestest" blast of the year should bring a Richter Count of 9.0 to the Royale Room of the Hotel Richelieu on April 12. It's tradition that nobody goes away saying they didn't have fun. The tariff is $4.00 per couple and includes unlimited refreshments. Phil Bovero's orchestra plays from nine until one. Don't miss the Bacchus Medicalis. Polio Inoculations All students up to the age of 40 at the Medical Center should receive inoculations of Poliomyelitis Vaccine. There has been shown as high as 80% lower incidents of attack rates with 1 or 2 inoculations and as high as 90% with three. Experience states that the older a person is when struck the more severe the attack can be. It is important to receive inoculations before the summer months arrive. They are scheduled on Wednesdays only, April 10, 1...
Wax Hardener, Anyone? [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
Wax Hardener, Anyone? There are always some humorous events which enliven even the most harassing situations. Such an occurence took place in the Freshman Laboratory one day recently during a Morphology period. The substance of the humor was in the conspiracy of Glen Stilley and Park Stompro. Their first victim was Diane Smith who succumbed to the suggestive comments which these men were making about the miraculous qualities of a "wax-hardener" they supposedly were using to prevent facture in functioning wax against wax. Diane, realizing the potentialities of this "hardener" went immediately to the student store to procure a bottle (of the "hardener" that is). And a bottle she got, for the store, going along with the gag, had some aerosol ready for the occasion. Duke Lewis followed Diane and almost provoked an exodus. But someone foiled the scheme, and soon the truth about the "wax-hardner" was revealed. Some freshmen are wiser, how- ' ever, and a good laugh was had by all.

CAMPUS CHATTER [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
CAMPUS CHATTER By DON MAGRINI Recently the Wives Club staged a ham dinner for the members which was quite a success. Seventy people were in attendance and fifty-two dinners were served. The wives surely deserved recognition for having prepared the entire evening, meal and entertainment. There was dancing after the meal and everyone had a most pleasant evening. Congratulations to the Dick Davis' who had an addition to the family on St. Patricks Day. Dick says that the little gal is sporting shamrock diapers. Talk of the 7th floor clinic: Dental Assistants rushing to the chair of "Casanova" Judd. Coming events at the Psi O House include a South Sea Party to be held March 30. If preparations are any indication, the event promises to be a success. Dress will be in the mood of the event so that the members will really have an opportunity to "live it up". Incidentally, conversation is still going about the Grecian-type beauty seen with Carl Shrieve at the last party. His buddy, Calypso Hi...
THE LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 1 April 1957
THE LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE by TRISH MEYERS The Medical Center is jointly made up of many schools of which little is really known. Many have asked—me just how does a girl in Dental Hygiene prepare for her two year course at the University of California Dental School, division of Dental Hygiene, and what are her curricular and extra-curricular activities after she is admitted. Since this issue of the paper is distributed throughout the Medical Center, I thought it would be a good opportunity to describe the Dental Hygiene program and its objectives. Once a girl has decided upon entering the field of Dental Hygiene, she takes a two year preparatory course at any University or College which gives her a broad background in the Liberal Art field. After she has been accepted as one of the group of eighteen Hygiene students, which is determined by her grade point average, her education continues to prepare her as a Dental Health Educator. In this specialized field, she gets a broad background...
