EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 27 September 1957
EDITORIAL This issue contains the first of a three part series on the efforts on the part of students and faculty over the past 30 years to make the new Student Union a reality. Although the administrative branches of the University can do much to make the University a strong physical structure, it is the people who dwell in these "Ivory Towers" that make the University a campus. As you can see, students have in the past operated successfully such enterprises as the student cafeteria and bookstore and initiated such worthwhile projects as the Medi-Cal. If it hadn't been for the students of 30 years agO starting these projects and working with them through the years, the structure across the street would not be a reality. Synapse urges you to read carefully the articles on the Medical Center's past, so that you may-be in a better position to evaluate the controversial issues which your student council, University Administrative Office, and the Regents of the University are thrashing ...

Dr. Karl Bowman On Narcotics NEW YORK — Narqotics addic-; tion should be treated medically rather than punitlvely, Dr. Karl M. Bowman told the American Psychopathological Association here recently. Dr. Bowman, professor of psychiatry emeritus at the University of California Medical Center, San Francisco, gave the association's Samuel Hamilton Memorial Lecture. * Praises British While illegal selling of narcotics should be vigorously prosecuted, Dr. Bowman said, addiction Itself should be regarded as a medical problem and not a crime. He praised the British system of narcotic control, under which addicts are encouraged to seek medical treatment and, where their physicians deem it necessary, are given prescriptions for sustaining doses of narcotics. The proportion of addicts to population in Britain is about 1/60 that of the United^States, he said, and addiction is virtually nonexistent among adolescents and young adults. The Illicit drug traffic there, he added, is feeble compared to...
