TRACHOMA VIRUS ISOLATED HERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 February 1960
TRACHOMA VIRUS ISOLATED HERE The first isolation of an American trachoma virus was reported by investigators at the University of California Medical Center. New techniques for isolating and culturing the virus of trachoma are permitting new approaches to eradication of this disease, an often-blinding eye infection from which an estimated 400 million people now suffer. It is widespread among American Indians and in underdeveloped countries. Until recently, research on trachoma was hampered by inability to preserve or grow the virus outside the patient. Now, it is hoped, study of various trachoma virus strains will lead to practical vaccines and improved diagnosis; disclose possible relationships between trachoma and other infections; and help explain differences in frequency and severity of the disease in different parts of the world. Strains of trachoma virus from at least four widely separated regions of the world are now being grown and studied by investigators at U.C. and elsewhe...

He is doing well and will soon return to work. He is the first patient on the Pacific Coast, and the fourth in the United States, to have a permanent pacemaker electrode attached directly to the heart muscle.

ADMISSIONS STATEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 February 1960
ADMISSIONS STATEMENT By: President Clark Kerr There has recently been some misunderstanding concerning University of California admission requirements, and I would like to clarify the University's position on this matter. It is often reported that the University accepts the top 15 per cent of high school graduates. The Master Plan for higher education recently adopted by the University and the State Board of Education recommends a 12.5 percentage. Certainly this does not represent a drastic change. Furthermore, it should be explained that the University does not actually accept students on the basis of percentages. These figures represent only the results of statistical analysis which are conducted after students are admitted. This admission is and will continue to be based on a student's academic performance in high school or other educational institution. For many years the University has used a "B" average in specified academic subjects as the principal basis for admission. The M...
