WESTMINSTER DISCUSSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 May 1960
WESTMINSTER DISCUSSIONS by Gwendolyn Rothman Tradition in the family or experiences in an individual's life often determines his choice of profession. During our student years we are so busy acquiring knowledge and skill that we are not completely aware of the ethical obligations to be maintained by a professional person throughout his life. The Westminster Foundation is sponsoring discussions of Professional and Personal Ethics. Medicine is not only a science and an art, but for the physician it is a way of life. The declaration of Geneva, trying to maintain the honor and noble traditions of the Medical Profession, contains passages which are in conformity with religion—". . . do unto others as ye would have others do unto you ..." it states! "I solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my to the service of humanity." "My colleagues will be my brothers." "I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics or social standing to intervene between my duty and m...

SENIOR MED GOINGS-ON [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 May 1960
SENIOR MED GOINGS-ON ...by Jim Villaveces Have you heard about the interesting internships this year's senior meds have chosen? For instance, you'll see Duane Reed busily learning his Spanish for his hospital stay in Panama City. Dave Swonson has bought his dark glasses and is trying to get a tan before his July Ist appointment at Triplet Army Hospital in Hawaii. • • Belton Meyer, MediCal yearbook editor, has been having nightmares these nights. He dreams that he's just finished lining up all the yearbook photographs on the floor, only to have someone open the door, scattering them all in a mixed up pile. Will all the pictures come out on the right pages? Buy your MediCol now from your class representatives and find out! This is really a bargain at only $4.50. Well, Mrs. Ann Lawrence finally had her baby, much to the relief of her classmates. Wild rumors had the infant weighing up to 15 pounds, but Ann modestly confesses her boy weighs only 8 pounds, 15 ounces. Seen around the hospi...

Among more than 2400 other students, the girls attended lectures, panels, and films focused on improving patient care.

From the Desk of the Union Director DATE: May 17, 1960 TO: The Editors, SYNAPSE FROM: R. A. Alexander First things first —a tip of the hat to Bill Ban and other student members of the A.Ph.A. for the splendid job done in putting on the very first Medical Sciences Exposition. This threeday event attracted widespread interest on campus and throughout the entire Bay Area. From our standpoint, it was a pleasure to work with such an efficient and well-organized group of people. Although the Exposition was one of the largest events ever held in the Union, it "came off" with little or no difficulty! Congratulations again to Bill and his "crew." • ART EXHIBITS The final art exhibit of the year is now on display at the Central Desk area and will run through May 31.

LOCAL LADS SEE MEXICO [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
LOCAL LADS SEE MEXICO Bob Rouse, Bob Andersen, Carl Meyer and Glen Cureton, "student's supreme," quietly departed from school on Thursday, April 7th, enroute for the land of Lopez Mateos, President of all Mexico. First stop, Tucson and the La Jolla Club. The night was spent at the University of Arizona. Finding little more than coca-cola in Nogales, Arizona, and rum in Nogales, Sonora, that was to their interest, the quartet pushed on to Guaymas, a seaport town and their first destination in Mexico. However, upon seeing no beaches or spots of beauty in this city—it might be noted that the group was not seeing too much at this time anyway (having made good use of their purchases in Nogales)—our friends cast their vote to move on, that evening, to further destinations. Supper consisted of a home cooked meal, prepared by the travelers on a camp stove, at a lovely spot on a river-bank. As the night darkened, the location also proved to be near the local cantina and the thundering blast ...
Impressions of a Senior [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
Impressions of a Senior by Jim Villaveces May is here, with graduation fast approaching. No other year seems to have passed so quickly. Pediatrics, obstetrics, surgery and medicine—each one capturing our imagination, only to be replaced by another. Excelsior! And on to the internship in July. But there are so many things competing for our time—patient follow-ups, study for those state boards, plans for graduation. So a sunny day comes and the week-end is spent in the park, or in a quiet corner discovering love. And Spring wins the round. Others forget the meaning of spring. In an elevator in Medical Science, a small, bent woman clutches a book in one hand and an appointment slip in the other. A look of helplessness fills her eyes as a dozen or so young and boistrous students press her into a corner. She drops her book. Have they forgotten that our white coat represents the Medical Center? They brush past her—apparently they have. In a few years they'll know. Four years end! Conflict...
Carrie Bedpan Student nurse, by Lee Eton. [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
Carrie Bedpan Student nurse, by Lee Eton. Our saga begins in the dismal shadow of a fourteen story San Francisco building not quite atop Mt Parnassus. As the scene opens, the weather has taken a foul turn and our heroine, Carrie, was blown along Parnassus Ave. from 4th Ave. to Arguello—almost losing her nurses uniform. Carrie staunchly fights against the howling wind, frantically gripping her nurses cap with one hand and holding the other aforementioned article down with the other, until she reaches and is whisked thought the main doors to the Medical Sciences Building. Although she must go to the 14th floor Carrie repeats her own self-styled motto, "A student nurse should always keep in good physical shape as well as be clean in mind" and, after pausing to pick up her every other weekly Synapse-combination newspaper and humor magazine, begins the long climb (C nnf iniipd An naop A \ up the stairs. In the stairwell the ever so diligent nursing student notices the wind is howling eve...
DR. AUDY LECTURE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
DR. AUDY LECTURE Dr. J. R. Audy, Director of Hooper Foundation and Professor of Tropical Medicine and human ecology, began the new series of Wednesday noon ecology lectures with the topic, "Fun and Friction in the Tropics." A packed audience in the medical science auditorium greeted his talk enthusi asti cal ly. Explaining that other peoples don't always think as we do, Dr. Audy told a number of interesting anecdotes from his wide experiences in world medical travel. "For instance," he said, "African natives just can't understand that there are disease organisms which can't be seen with the naked eye. They are confident that these must be evil spirits and any attempt to inject penicillin will just bring their wrath upon them and their families." "In Viet Nam, you can't just go sinking water wells any old place," he warned, "for you might sink one of the wells into the veins of a dragon which, any Viet Namese can tell you, sleeps under every village." He hastened to state that wester...
SECOND YEAR REVISITED [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
SECOND YEAR REVISITED by Arnold Leong After writing a scintillating analysis on Biochemistry, I turned my thoughts toward that most necessary evil called the class party. Because of the diversity of interests in the students constituting our class, our class party was held on three floors. We had hoped that each student would find one of the floors to his taste. The first level was a general fun area. The room was full of chairs and couches for bridge players. Adjoining this room on the same level there was a dark area for dancing. This area was also utilized by card players who preferred the dark. The second level was a room painted in black and filled with sawdust (so okay—dancing rosin!) The most popular spot seemed to be a table on which a most unusual experiment was taking place. Students were trying to raise the pressure inside a cylindrical object. I was confused until I was told that they were demonstrating a form of Henry's Law as an Experiment for Physical Chemistry 1098. ...
RAMBLINGS AT KAPPA PSI [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
RAMBLINGS AT KAPPA PSI by Jim Flaharty &amp; Peter Lazo "True Scientists" Known since the beginning of time for its conservative contributions to the professional field of Pharmacy, Beta Gamma Chapter ventured evermore into the field of Pharmaceutical excellence. This semester, in conjunction with the Outer Mongolian Pharmaceutical Association, Kappa Psi advocated "stainless steel suppository machine for every Pharmacy." This recommendation was so well accepted by the pharmaceutical industry, that the house won the Nobel Prize in the field of Creative Arts. This semester we acquired a playful little kitten for a mascot. We promptly named her Hedda Perras and initiated her into the fraternal bond. Since we have been known for terrestial endurance, several of the brothers toured Mexico, where they caught a lot: Two sailfish, a Marlin and crabs. While they were down there, they visited our chapter house at T-town only to find out that they were professionally deprived. Last wee...
FIRST YEAR PHARMACY CLASS PICNIC [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 May 1960
FIRST YEAR PHARMACY CLASS PICNIC On Saturday, April 30th, the first year Pharmacy class held a picnic at the Marin Towne and Country Club in Fairfax. Though the weather in San Francisco was not promising, it was a magnificent day for a picnic in Marin. Both students and faculty had a most enjoyable day cavorting in the sun. While this reporter was likewise cavorting, he ran across such notables as Drs. Brodie, Diamond, Goyan and Kind, and Messrs Calvin Lee and Can Meyer. After a sumptuous luncheon (hamburgers and potato chips a-la-Bob Duffy), a drawing was held and many prizes were given—through the courtesy of Bob Kramer. The remainder of the afternoon was filled with Softball and swimming. Everyone—thanks to the chairmen, Bob Barcklay and Bob Kramer—went home with a hangover. XXX
