Coffee and Counsel [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 February 1960
Coffee and Counsel • The stimulation provided by the Coffee Break comes more from conversation over the cups, than from the caffeine in them. • This, at least, is the contention of Dr. Jean S. Felton of California School of Public Health. • Although laboratory work has shown that caffeine acts on the brain to promote clearer, more rapid thinking, the Los Angeles investigator declares that these effects "have never been demonstrated in the work situation." • Dr. Felton goes on to say: "Probably the greatest value of the coffee break is the opportunity, particularly for those in repetitive work, to cease their labors periodically, and establish or develop further relationships with co-workers. "Whether welders are on a smoke-break at the coffee dispenser or typists are at the snack bar, there is value in these groupings. "Experiences are exchanged and tensions lessened. Plans are made for joint activities, romances are nourished, and low-level counseling executed."
NEW HOURS FOR ATHLETIC WING [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 February 1960
NEW HOURS FOR ATHLETIC WING New Hours for the Union athletic facilities went into effect January 4. The new time schedule cuts out what has been found to be fringe hours, where the demand for use of the facilities is negligible. Even though we would like to keep the doors to the athletic facilities open more hours, budgetary commitments demand that we shorten our hours of operation for the Spring semester. Hours of Operation ATHLETIC AND POOL FACILITIES: Monday—Friday 12—9 P.M. Saturday 9 A.M.—6 P.M. Sunday 1 P.M.—6 P.M. RECREATIONAL SWIM SCHEDULE: (Members and Guests) Monday, Wednesday, Friday -12 Noon—9 P. M. Tuesday and Thursday 12 Noon—7 P.M. Saturday and Sunday 1 P.M.—6 P.M.

FROM PHARMACY SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 19 April 1960
FROM PHARMACY SCHOOL The sophomore class, under the esteemed leadership of their organizers, held a party at the Kappa Psi house recently. The members of the class were out-numbered four to one by Ist year girls from Providence Nursing School —seemed quite impressed with everything— hadn't acquired the natural amount of apathy yet. Always thinking of the beauty of the campus and the surrounding neighborhood, a campus fraternity planted two Persia Indicas—approved by the Regents and Improvement Committee of course—on Pamassus Avenue. Dean Batts is getting fed up with students lounging on the roof of the Union, throwing beer cans and shouting profanity at passing damsels. rnnflnnpM On niPP Governor Brown will never get his budget balanced, despite the vetoes he throws the legislature. This campus alone will throw the budget into deficit through the unscrupulous endeavors of certain "empowered" students. Sorry about that! The Vledi-Cal is finally off the ground — through the concerted ...
EDITOR'S NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 19 April 1960
EDITOR'S NOTES What's New About the New Synapse Actually, nothing is really new; the New Synapse is only reverting back to its old ways, so to speak. Originally, as some of you might remember, the Synapse was published as a campus newspaper for the students. Recently it has digressed in content to just another Med Center bulletin whose best purpose, as far as most students were concerned, was as a book mark. The editors and staff of the new Synapse feel that there is a definite need for a campus newspaper which would be interesting and entertaining to the student. The Medical Center is, after all, a university campus and while, educationally speaking, it fulfills its role, there are many other facets, common to all university campuses, in which we are definitely lacking -such things as campus student unity, the social activities and atmosphere which lead to the exchange of new ideas and different interests amongst all of the stu-dents-in essence, all of the things we find outside ou...
From the Desk of the Union Director [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 19 April 1960
From the Desk of the Union Director FROM: R. A. Alexander In resuming this particular column, may first extend congratulations to the Cal Club for volunteering to take over the job of publishing our campus newspaper. The Union Board and staff are convinced of the need for a publication of this type, and we wish the new editors every success in this challenging venture. Some coming events of interest: Special Art Exhibits The Union Fine Arts Committee is now displaying original paintings by the Saturday Evening Post's world-famous illustrator, Norman Rockwell. These works will be up through Friday, May 6. The final exhibit of the year will run from May 10 through May 31 and will consist of a very unique display of Early-American Firearms collected by Dr. Hartman of the School of Dentistry. ■■ Film Program Five more programs remain to be presented this Spring, the schedule being as follows: • April 22—The Golden Age of Comedy • April 29 —Will Success Spoil Rock 11 unter? • May 6—Mirac...

Too Many People? [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 19 April 1960
Too Many People? by Jim Villaveces senior school of medicine "Population Explosion" experts worry about the number of mouths to feed but forget that each new mouth is accompanied by two hands to feed it, a priest-educator asserted here. Father Anthony Zimmerman, S.V.D., S.T.D., who taught at Imperial College in Japan during 1948—52 and who wrote his now famous Ph. D. thesis on overpopulation, was introduced to an audience of over 200 in the Medical Sciences auditorium by Professor Harold Harper of the Department of Biochemistry. In his lecture, sponsored by the campus Newman Club, Father Zimmerman stated that the world is in a state of transition from a period of high mortality to a period of low mortality. Because of increasing standards of health, people are now living longer. Once the ultimate frontier of life expectancy will have been reached by most of the human race, and will have been implemented into the various population compositions, he said, the explosion of human number...
DENTAL HYGIENE HIGHLIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 19 April 1960
DENTAL HYGIENE HIGHLIGHTS Have you noticed any knitting needles around campus? Well, chances are there's a Junior Dental Hygiene student attached to the other end. This is our latest method of improving our digital dexterity, (or could it be that Spring is here and naturally books have to be replaced with something . . . ) Another distinguishing feature, is our mad rush to any and all cultural events. This did not come about exactly by choice, but as an effort to disprove the rumor circulating the Med Center that "D.H.s have culture." Now, much to our surprise, we're actually beginning to enjoy the Finer Things in Life: the symphony, the ballet, deYoung Museum, band concerts in the park, the beach, the zoo, the Wishing Well. (Uh-huh. Spring is here . . . ) Social activities have also received some attention this semester. A good time was had by all at a at a dinner-dance held in conjunction with the Senior class. To celebrate the middle of March (any excuse will do), we entertained ...
