Drug Control Bill [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 17 October 1961
Drug Control Bill BY FREDERICK H. MEYERS, M.D., ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF PHARMACOLOGY AND TOXICOLOGY There now oppears to be a definite possibility that the next Congress will approve some kind of drug control bill. The testimony of Secretary Ribicoff before hearings on the Kefauver-Celler bill and the recent action of the Attorney General against the terracyeline manufacturers suggest opproval by the administration. The present bill will, without doubt, be modified during hearings but there are now, in my opinion, two crucial provisions: Drug patents would still issue for 17 years but, after 3 years of exclusive rights, the patent holder would be required to license any other qualified manufacturer and collect 8% of sales as a maximum royalty. This change is intended to restore competition within drug groups in which final cost is unrelated to cost of production. Note that the claim that the drug patent system is abolished is at least a slight distortion. Several other industries hav...

Doctor's Symphony To Play Here On Friday evening, November 3, ths .entire Medicol Center will be served a rare treat of musical excellence in the form of the unique and well-known Doctor's Symphony Orchestra. The full orchestra, fifty-two in number, will be conducted by Mr. Edgar Broun and will perform works by Hondel (Water Music Suite), Beethoven (The Violin Concerto and the Egmont Overture), and Mozart (The Clarinet Concerto). The musical interests of individuals in the health sciences has long been recognized, and the Doctor's Symphony, composed of Doctors of Medicine, Pharmacists, Doctors of Dentistry, Nurses and other allied professionals, demonstrates a conversion of this interest into a single and polished performing group. The orchestra itself came into being just five years ago, as the result of an idea jointly spawned by a practicing physician and a flutist, then appearing with the San Francisco Symphony. Their idea at that time wos to create a musical and recreational ou...

GREEK LETTER NEWS Kappa Psi Greetings and a |olly welcome back to the treadmill from Kappa Psi. I trust that everyone is anxious to get back to the grind after three months of bliss.

We have already had a lunch for the freshmen and we staged our first TGI F of the year. Both of these functions were tremendous successes. We are having a dinner for the freshmen on Wednesday, the 4th of October, with an exchange following on the 7th of October. We are hoving a closed house party. Now for all you people who think all we exist for are the social functions, you are only half right. We do have a professional program, in which we invite speakers to ...
