CANDID I [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
CANDID I The fall semester has fallen, true to form, and again I see mass weekday depression, followed by weekend over-exuberance—to put it mildly. Numerous severe cases of Baggus Undereyetis ravage the campus, especially in medical students, who have taken up bed-time reading in a little book-of-the-month novel by Gray. Bunsen burners blaze into the wee hours as dental students diligently prepare last week's challenging gold crown. They are quite likely to greet carious suspects with "How are you? Who do you know that needs a full mouth extraction?" Dental hygienists are busy learning the thrills of cleaning teeth. Their acquired oral fixation is only too obviously manifested by compulsive staring at other's teeth. I often get the impression that my calculus is showing. Physical therapists are trying to maintain professional poise while clad in bikinis and mutilated with grease pencil. One can't help but notice the nursing students as they are number one elevator menace with their ...

A Harem and a Ph.D. for Anis [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
A Harem and a Ph.D. for Anis Anis Makaren's greatest desire in life is to be the head of a very large household—a harem. His second goal is to receive a Ph.D. degree in BioChemistry. Anis is actively working on both projects at the present but, unfortunately, the latter seems to consume the majority of his time. He is a Research Assistant in the Biochemistry department and spends a great deal of time in classes in preparation for the writing of his Doctorate. Anis is labeled as a "foreigner" but after seven years in the United States he has become very "Americanized." In fact, he is so "Americanized" that when visiting home (Raselmahn, Lebanon) in 1959 he had trouble speaking and understanding Arabic, his native tongue. He claims that he plans on staying in the United States "if the right woman catches him." One thing, girlshe insists that the woman he marries must be able to do the Belly Dance. Lebanon was Anis* home for 19 years. His older brother who lives in Brazil suggested tha...
Woman Medical Student Speaks [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
Woman Medical Student Speaks A little more than two years ago, demure, petite, Evangeline Ping Jang entered the University of California Medical School. Vangie and her family had come to the United States from Southern China seven years ago and Vangie then did her undergraduate work at U. C., Berkeley. She also had time to cultivate other interests including sailing, hiking, pleasure reading, classical music, and, as Vangie puts it,"a certain amount of social contact." We were particularly interested in why Vangie chose a medical career, how she likes being a woman medical student, and what she feels are the advantages and disadvantages. "I chose medicine because I felt that in a medical career my personality would develop to its fullest, besides my intrinsic, inexplicable interest in it. I like the medical center very much; I think it is fascinating. It provides the opportunity to see people from all walks of life. There is intellectual and emotional exchange, growth, and developme...

DENTAL HYGIENE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
DENTAL HYGIENE Dental hygiene as a profession for women dates from the early 1900's. The first school for dental hygienists was established in 1913 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and in 1918 the first hygiene school in the west was established here at OCMC by Dr. Guy S. Millberry. The University of California is about to take another leading step by becoming one of the first dental hygiene schools in the nation to admit men. This new policy will start in the near future. A textbook will tell you: "the D. H. is a licensed professional oral health educator and clin- ical operator who, as an auxiliary to the dentist, uses scientific methods of control and prevention of oral disease to aid individuals and groups in attaining and maintaining optimum oral health." In accord with this definition, the duties of a D. H. include: 1. Examining all the oral tissues for existing conditions including a thorough inspection of the teeth. Roentgenograms are taken to provide as complete a picture as is ...
TO BEE OR NOT TO BEE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
TO BEE OR NOT TO BEE (Agricultural scientists have discovered that a whiff of anesthetic gas will turn a virgin queen bee into a mother without benefit of a mate.—UP) The virgin bee, it seems, can sleep And innocently meanwhile keep Her spinsterhood, like any other, But awaken, stilt, a mother! Scientists, where is your shame? Oh, give the little bee a name — Take pity on the tiny drone Whose father was an ether cone. Or must he buzz a feeble buzz And say, "My father never was — Or if he was, alack, alas— My papa was a whiff of gas." The moral is: All males beware This breath of anesthetic air Which threatens all our sex, lest we Be obsolescent—like the bee. — Edwin D. Kilbourne From Cornell Medical College Alumni Bulletin, Spring, 1962, taken from the Phoenix Nest Saturday Review.

ATTENTION, MEN OF MEDICINE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
ATTENTION, MEN OF MEDICINE Students, Interns, Residents: Dr's. All!! We know you work 'til you're about to fall Rounds to make, tests to run; It hardly seems you can get it all done. So you hurry, and you rush, rush, rush And as a result your writing looks . . . like m ush. Then we come, new students, innocent &amp; bold To our first chart we grab a death hold Proudly we open it, ready to find Facts &amp; figures of every kind. We turn it one way — and then the next Then meekly we ask the nurse at the desk. She looks, and looks, and gives a great sigh! "She has worked here three years," ... is her reply And she still doesn't know that Brown /%&amp; means Jones and means Down. So you see time is wasted—yes, too much, All because of your initial Rush, Rush, Rush In this poem we'd like to ask You to slow down and give us a chance We want to carry out your orders and . . . serve you well But this is impossible when your writing . . . looks like Hell! So please sl...
Rope News [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 29 October 1962
Rope News The beginning of every year brings to the mind of every Rho Pi Phi member two words: housecleaning and rushing. Under the guidance of our Chancellor, Jim MacGregor, we are actively pursuing the arrangement of our house files and reference materials to entitle all of our members the best pharmacy study guides available on campus. For the first weeks of the semester, social chairman Norman Gong is planning a luncheon, formal dinner, and a party at our house for the benefit of the incoming first year students. His long-range plans include outside speakers at some of our meetings, a few closed parties, and a snow trip later on in the semester. Congratulations are extended to past chancellor Louis Martinelli upon his election as president of the Rho Chi honorary Pharmacy fraternity. - TOM PIEPMEYER
