From the Desk of the Union Director [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
From the Desk of the Union Director TO: The Editors, THE SYNAPSE FROM: R. A. Alexander For about the last six weeks, the Union has been as dismal and as quiet as a pediatric ward without any babies. So, and in the words of comic, Phil Silvers, "Glad ta see ya!" The editors of The Synapse have requested that an article be submitted covering activities which itook place during the recent summer session and some of our plans for '60—'61. It seems appropriate, then, to begin with comments concerning: FINANCES &amp; HOURS After suffering substantial financial losses in its initial year of operations, the Millberry Union finished '59—'60 with a modest excess of income over expenses. This economic recovery was primarily due to increased activity in the Book and Supply Store, coupled with reduced losses in the Food Services Department. As we begin our third year of operations, however, there is no place for "fiscal overoptimism." Though we decidedly do not primarily consider ourselv...

WELCOME SCHOOL OF PHARMACY [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
WELCOME SCHOOL OF PHARMACY The members of the faculty of the School of Pharmacy join me in extending greetings and best wishes to the student body. All of you are here for the singular purpose of acquiring an educational background that will qualify you to serve as a member of your chosen profession. The University offers you an unlimited opportunity to achieve this high purpose and to develop your full potential in scholarly pursuits. To take advantage of this opportunity, which comes but once in a lifetime, is a challenge which, I am sure, each of you is willing to accept. This, of course, means a willingness to dedicate your time and effort to scholarly pursuits, irrespective of whether you find studying a pleasure or an effort. Experience shows there is a high degree of correlation in student achievement during the first few weeks of instruction and the over-all performance in a course. A good start is desirable for a happy ending. During the past several decades, more progress ...
DEANS' WELCOME SCHOOL OF MEDICINE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
DEANS' WELCOME SCHOOL OF MEDICINE It gives me great pleasure to welcome the freshman class of our School of Medicine to the San Francisco campus. You have completed a long period of preparation and are now ready to embark on a new and stimulating experience. Due to the generosity of the State of California, you have been afforded the most modern and complete facilities in which to pursue your education.

In addition to the formal aspects of the curriculum, the faculty is also interested in helping you with any problems which might arise from the transition period during which you are first becoming acclimated to the atmosphere of a career in medicine. For this reason, I trust you will avai...
MESSAGES WELCOME SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
MESSAGES WELCOME SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY All of you who are entering the School of Dentistry today have completed — and I might add, quite successfully — a minimum of fourteen years of education. All of this has been preparation for this day when you start your professional education. You have been through a very fine "filter" system and selected out of about three hundred dental applicants and sixty dental hygiene applicants. The School of Dentistry will expect a high standard of performance from each of you, but if your motivation is strong and if our selection system was valid, there should be little fear of academic failure. Today, as you register, I want each of you to realize that you are doing more than registering in a new school; you are entering the profession of your choice. There are many skills which you must learn to master and there are several areas of science in which you must deepen and broaden your knowledge. Not the least of what you will learn in these formative yea...
WELCOME—SCHOOL OF NURSING [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
WELCOME —SCHOOL OF NURSING The School of Nursing extends a warm welcome to all students enrolled this Fall; new students, basic and graduate, transfer students and returning students. We know you're coming to us fresh from a vacation of fun or perhaps a work-and-learn vacation, but we think you'll find the coming school year will bring its own excitement and enjoyment to you. Our new students who come from study in a variety of other educational institutions will find that, regardless of the size or fame of their parent school, they will never experience a greater opportunity for meaningful study than is ahead for them here at the Medical Center. The student community brings you the chance to make lifelong friends while you share the work and recreational life of other students on the San Francisco campus. The students have been sincerely missed during their absence. It's been too quiet around the Medical Center without you. Welcome back! Helen Nahm, Dean School of Nursing

PARALYTIC POLIO [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 14 September 1960
PARALYTIC POLIO As during previous years since polio vaccine has been available to the general public, the highest incidence of paralytic polio so far this year has occurred in unvaccinated or inadequately vaccinated persons. According to preliminary data on the vaccination status of the 310 paralytic cases (tp July 31, I960) on which the U.S. Public Health Service has received a vaccination report, 166, or 54%, had received no vaccine and 36% had not received the full series and a booster. California is one of the only three states reporting rather marked increases in paralytic cases to July 31, 1960, with 152 cases, an increase of 27% over the 120 cases for the same period last year. The experience of previous years has been that the peak of the polio season occurs in the fall months, so there is every reason to believe that the incidence in California will continue to increase during the next two or three months. As the U.S. Public Health Service reports, "With an effectiveness o...
