SKETCHES BY TROUVERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 January 1961
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE Impressions of a contemporary Wandering Minstrel Christmas vacation and New Year's Day are safely behind us and most of us are well settled into our happy new years' routines. The grim spectre of final exams looms ahead, however, and most of the students are beginning to look a little feverish—in spite of most of them having experienced many sets of finals already, during their laborious progress toward professional status. The First Year students are wondering why-they-ever-picked-this-field-anyway; those in the Middle are experiencing the first panging symptoms (the prodromal ones) of the apathy and school-fatigue to follow; those in the Last Year are trying to locate and predict the loose ends that will need tying, while thinking about internships, jobs, the Army, further training, and their debts. The vacation just past provided opportunities of varying nature for everyone here. Some used it to study (without ever admitting it to anyone, of course). Others c...

SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 January 1961
SPORTS A.S.U.C.M.C. BASKETBALL TEAM With one remaining practice game, and a 2-win 2-loss record to date, the U.C. Medical Center Team will go into league play during the month of January. The team will play in the Class "B" San Francisco Unified School District Recreation League. By its performance thus far, the team is potentially a very strong club. The club is expected to win their league. This statement is backed by the following facts: With Dr. Ron Marenda and Hap Stallman, the team has definitely the best pair of guards in the league. Both are experienced and strong, both offensively and defensively. Between the two, they scored more than half the team's total points in the first four practice games. Added to these two is another fine ball player, Bob Nemechek, a former Cal Varsity player. Bob has demonstrated his value to the team with his ball hocking style of play, his rebounds and ball stealings. Then there is Dennis Starsiak, a 6* 4" center with Varsity ball playing exper...

THE "EYES" HAVE IT [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 January 1961
THE "EYES" HAVE IT by DR. HOWARD M. MYERS Now private eyes are mighty wise, There's little can dismay them. Their lives consist of one long tryst With every kind of mayhem. They have a creed which all must heed, No matter the resistance. For none to date dares violate These rules of his existance. A private eye does not reply To queries from inspectors, He seals his lip or makes some quip About their arch protectors. Mos/ every time he solves a crime, His role must be suspicious. lie must be faced with great disgrace If he's at all ambitious. A private eye would rather die Than have the girls exclude him. For then he'd fret and almost let The gangsters mob elude him. But such a spot is not his lot No women can resist him His females fight 'most every night On who it was that kissed him. There's one more act that must be fact For private eyes real "groovie He must have made a pure li grade Old television movie.
