FRESHMAN PHARMACY NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
FRESHMAN PHARMACY NEWS The freshman class is looking forward to a wonderful year with Dr. Eugene Jorgensen as their adviser. With much enthusiasm the freshmen and their guests, nurses, dental hygienists and faculty, enjoyed the class' "first of many" social events. During the short time that the freshmen have been a part of the school, they have not only made their mark in "scholarly and social" endeavors, but also in the field of sports. The freshman Softball team (Kumler's Kubs) overwhelmingly defeated the sophomores and once victorious juniors at the annual Pharmacy picnic. The champion's short-lived season was brought to an eventful close with a four-inning 2-2 tie ball game with the world renowned Pharmacy faculty.

SKETCHES BY TROUVERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE Impressions of a contemporary Wandering Minslral One of the best ways to broaden one's self (educa-tion-wise, that is) is to ride the elevators in the Medical Center. By surreptitiously listening to various conversations that are going on during the upward and downward journeys one is able to add multitudinous gems of knowledge to his mental storage compartments. The important thing is to listen to what the various Medical Center inhabitants are saying—the Other People (patients, visitors, salesmen, etc.) usually don't say much, being generally too awe-stricken by the whiteness and medicality of it all. Atypical grouping of conversational bits and snatches is the following (overheard while solidly jammed into an elevator corner): "My ruptured spleen is getting better." (The speaker was a young, healthy-looking fellow. It's a shame... about his spleen.) "I think the role of copper and of the dopa-dopa quinone system in the oxidation of tyrosinase is simply fascin...
ASUCMC COUNCIL MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
ASUCMC COUNCIL MEETING October 4, 1960 The meeting was called to order in the Mi I Iberry Union Table-tennis Room by President Mike Clarke. Items discussed were: Insurance The Dean of Students' Office will now handle the processing of the California Physicians Service Insurance forms. Existance or Reorganization of ASUCMC Should the ASUCMC Council continue to exist and, if so, should it be reorganized? There is no need for the Council to duplicate the activities of the Union, and the Union could handle the ASUCMC activities (Bacchus, Christmas dance, Noon Concerts and the Synapse). Mike Clarke proposed that if the Council dissolved, the Student Body presidents of the four schools replace the appointed student representatives on the Union Board of Governors. The four presidents would also act as an ASUCMC Council, taking care of matters not directly concerned with the Union. Carl Meyer suggested the present Council members participate on the Union committees, such as Friendship and F...
CAL CLUB DISCUSSES [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
CAL CLUB DISCUSSES by Glen Cureton In preparation for the statewide Cal Club convention next January, the U.C. Medical Center chapter discussed the proposed topics at the home of their chairman, Jim Blake. The first topic, "A re-evaluation of the place and purpose of Extra-curricular Activities," a seemingly perpetual topic, was initially attacked as one too frequently taken up by some groups, with the usual, similar results which practically achieve nothing. Nevertheless, a discussion ensued. In my opinion, supplemented by the opinions of other Cal Clubbers, the purpose of extra-curricular programs is fulfillment of individual desires, interests and needs —or fulfillment of a "necessary" function—with, of course, considerable overlap. They consist of needs that are not academically supplied or not adequately supplied by the academic program of the institution. An activity that satisfies individual needs may be of two types - active or non-active. Active types are those which involv...

Nursing News [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
Nursing News The evening of Tuesday, October 25, the third year nursing class gave a "get acquainted party" to honor the first year class. The party began at 7:00 p.m. in the lounge of the Millberry Union Women's Residence, and included refreshments, singing, and a unique relay game. Following this game (which included the use of bags over the heads of the first year students), the class was taken to the Z.I.P. House, where they were further entertained by members of that institution. One freshman aptly summarized the evening: "First they put bags over our heads; then they led us down the street. Then they threw water on us and stirck us in the showers." A "Costume or Consequence" Halloween party was hostessed by the first year class. Held on October 27, in the 610 Parnassus Residence, the party was attended by members of the faculty and all classes of the School of Nursing. Some of the costumes included Hawaiian outfits, a flapper dress, a devil, a lady in black with a red lantern,...
SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
SPORTS Intramural Basketball With a few more games to go, no one single team remained undefeated. The high and mighty Soph Dent, last year's champions, bowed to the Frosh Med. Now it is a toss-up for championship in the independent league between the Frosh Med., Frosh Dent., and Soph Dent. Soph Dent, is still the favorite as the Frosh Dent and Frosh Med must play one more game against each other, and one will be eliminated from the title position. In the Fraternity League, Zi Phi Psi and Kappa Psi are neck-to-neck for championship. Attention Sports Enthusiasts: Every Friday noon, 12:15 p.m., in the Millberry Union, a sports film of some nature will be shown. Films on Cal's basketball games will be shown when the season gets under way. Other films scheduled will present such interesting sports as skiing, surfing, deep sea diving, etc. Attendance at the past noon sports film suggested that the students of the Medical Campus have considerable interest in sports. For this particular rea...

DENTAL HYGIENE NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
DENTAL HYGIENE NEWS The Junior Dental Hygiene class of 1960 numbers 21 girls, a somewhat smaller class than any of recent years. Two of the four years required for graduation with Bachelor of Science degree were satisfied before acceptance here at the Medical Center. To start at the top, colors of hair vary from light, light blonde to dark brown and, coincidentally, the two with flaming red are roommates. Talents spied out include: 1) Ear wiggling; 2) Playing guitar and piano; 3) One who hasn't a dental cavity. The class will be reduced by one next semester due to an "expecting" member who is married to a dental student. Heard in Anatomy Lab: "Why don't the books agree? The human b-o-d-d-d-y doesn't change that much!" Watchwords: • Psychology: "Be yourselves." • Anatomy: "What is it?" • Biological Science: "What does it do?" • Mouth Hygiene: "Steady, there!" • Dental Health Education: "Pass the good word along." • Morphology: "Watch those angles." • Oral Biology: "Put it all togethe...
NURSING NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
NURSING NEWS There has been quite a lot going on the past few weeks for the freshman Nurses. On Tuesday, October 25, they had a party with the senior class. Refreshments were served, and then there was "entertainment." A relay race was played in which all the freshmen found themselves tied in a line with paper bags over their heads. Then they were led down Parnassus—gracefully tripping all over each other as they groped their way. Eventually they ended up in the yard of the ZIP house, and it began to rain—hoses, buckets, and miscellaneous containers poured water on the "bluebirds." Then they were escorted into the house and, one by one, given a nice, warm, but very wet, shower. On Thursday of that week, they held a Halloween party for the junior and senior classes and faculty. As a result, some of the first year instructors turned up in very unusual costumes. A majority of the class braved the weather on Thursday, November 3, and rode the cable car to #9 Fisherman's Grotto to celebr...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 30 November 1960
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Open Letter to Barbara Deushane Thank you for answering our letter of October 12, but we wish to clarify a few points which you mentioned. First, you suggested joining the Synapse staff. Out of the total of 12 staff members, 5 are nursing students, and 4 of the 5 are freshman nurses. We feel that is adequate representation. As it is well known, there is an abundant supply of nursing and pharmacy students on the staff. You also recommended inviting members of other schools to join the staff. We have tried and failed. There seems to be a lack of enthusiasm from some of the schools which cannot be overcome. Another suggestion you made was to subscribe to Tomorrow's Nurse. We fail to see how this can improve relations with other schools on this campus. Perhaps you misunderstood our letter; we were complaining of the poor relations with other schools on this campus, not the nursing schools of the United States. Finally, we are doing our best in the realm of patient ...
