RAMBLINGS AT KAPPA PSI [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
RAMBLINGS AT KAPPA PSI by Tru Scientist Since the founding ot Kappa Psi in the Fifth Century, 8.C., and since the proclamation of Nero that we be recognized as the foremost professional fraternity, only one flaw has appeared: This was the affiliation of Beta Gamma Chapter in 1910. Socially, this week we had an exchange with Sigma Epsilon Xi Sorority from Milpitas Tech. During the exchange there was much merriment and laughter, interrupted occasionally with a free hand of joy. Among the glamorous attending sweeties were Petunia Pitts, Rose Bush, Patty Potts, Thelma Thud, Clara Quackenbush, Mable Ape and Hedda Perras. During the exchange many brothers rose to the occasion, and we managed to swap two of our most obvious closet cases for two of the sorority queens. In connection with our professional improvement program, we are going to sponsor a dinner for underprivileged T.A.s. We will serve 3-inch thick New York Cut steaks with all the trimmings. We urge all those who fall under unde...
SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS KAPPA PSI WINS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS KAPPA PSI WINS by THE COACH Kappa Psi's basketball team, brilliantly coached this year by Hooks deZordo, decisively crushed their opponents in their first outing of the season last Thursday night, October 13th. A fantastic combination of dazzling floor work on the part of the outside men, coupled with pinpoint shooting and bone-crushing rebounding by the front line, made the towel-chewing job for coach "Hooks" even easier. One additional factor put the clincher on Thursday night's tilt, and that was the fact that the other team didn't show up.

CHOLINE SYNTHESIS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
CHOLINE SYNTHESIS University of California biochemists have found a previously-unknown mechanism by which the body makes choline, a vitamin which helps maintain normal liver function. The work was done by Dr. David M. Greenberg, chairmanof the Department of Biochemistry at the University's San Francisco Medical Center, and Dr. Jon Bremer, a recent research fellow from Norway. The study was supported by the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Greenberg has just received a three-year, $46,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for further exploration of the chemical reactions and enzyme systems involved in choline synthesis and related life processes. Choline functions in the body as a component of lecithin, one of the important phospholipids, or fatty phosphorus compounds, found in blood and tissues. It has long been known that lecithin is made in the mitochondria, rodlike granules in the protoplasm that surrounds the nuclei of cells, by utilizing choline from the diet. It had...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPEN LETTER TO THE NURSING CLASS OF '63 [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPEN LETTER TO THE NURSING CLASS OF '63 Although I think that there is need for improvement in the relationship between the various health professions, I do not completely agree with your statement that nurses are "socially and psychologically isolated." —at least, relationships on this campus seem to be better than that. If you are having d ifficulty in this area, however, try some of the following: • Join the SYNAPSE staff and work with the present editors from the various schools. (Help the Bigger and Better Synapse become even bigger and better). • Improve relations with and recognition of some of the other curricula on campus (physical therapy, dental hygiene, dietetic interns, etc.). You could do this through the medium of our very own campus humor magazine and professional journal, the SYNAPSE, by inviting them to join the staff and by interviewing them for articles about their school. • Subscribe to and write articles for TOMORROW'S NURSE, the journal f...

Representatives, George LaVaque and Bob Miller; School of Pharmacy Treasurer, Linda Raplee. So far this year, besides "pounding the books," we have planned a Class Party for Friday, October 28th, at the Kappa Psi Fraternity house.

EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE FOR STUDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE FOR STUDENTS Dr. Adrienne A. Batts, Dean of Students, has asked that the following announcement be brought to the attention of students on this campus needing emergency medical care: Students who are injured or acutely ill should report first to the Emergency Ward in Moffitt Hospital. In this way they will receive the quickest attention in an installation oriented to emergency care. Arrangements will be made with the Emergency Ward and the Services involved to transfer the student to Student Health Service care when his condition permits. The only purpose of this directive is to provide students with the quickest and best medical consultation available on this Campus. Recent injuries have indicated that time lost may be critical and, therefore, an emergency visit to the Student Health Service facility is potentially dangerous, since they are not equipped as an emergency ward.
RUSHING REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
RUSHING REPORT Kappa Psi had its first rushing function of the year on Thursday, October 13th, and the event was a big success. We began the evening's entertainment by forming a large circle with chairs, but the house advisor came in at this point and put a stop to it. So the house president, Rich Taricco, got up instead and gave a short talk about Kappa Psi, relating the history of the house, introducing some of the members and informing the rushees as to what will be expected of them as pledges. When the rushees began drifting out, though, we also had to put a stop to this part of the program. A tour of the house was conducted next. We went deep into its depths and showed the awed rushees our game rooms. It was noticed when we returned to the main floor that several freshmen were missing and a rescue party is planned in the near future. Meanwhile, we feel, although disproved by eminent scientists, thatthe missing students will gain enough nourishment from the alcoholic contents of...

FOREIGN AFFAIRS —so close An amazingly worldwide representation was assembled in the Faculty Lounge of the Millberry Union last Tuesday, October 18, between four and six in the afternoon. The event: a reception for Medical Center foreign students. Present for the welcome were some student-leaders and representatives of the Dean's Office, which sponsored the event.
