FROM YOUR ASUCMC PRESIDENT [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
FROM YOUR ASUCMC PRESIDENT At the February meeting of the ASUCMC council, several topics of interest to the student body at large were discussed. Mill berry Union Cafeteria: There is dissatisfaction with the Millberry Union Cafeteria and we spoke at length about possible changes. The matter has been referred to a committee under the Union Board of Governors, and will hopefully soon be resolved there. Millberry Union Lounge: We also considered the petition signed by many students to keep the lounge areas of the Union open until 11:00 p.m. seven days a week. This petition was presented at the Board of Governors' meeting and defeated because of (I)present—and consistent—low "head counts" during the evening hours, and (2) the possible extension of the library hours to 11:00 p.m. University of Airlangga: Our project to help the students at the medical center of the University of Airlangga in Indonesia was again discussed with great enthusiasm. We hope to have a drive sometime near the en...

SYNAPSE PERSONALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
SYNAPSE PERSONALITIES William Wallace Halay 111, who adamantly prefers the nickname of Bud to his formal title, has been selected as one of the most outstanding students in physical therapy. Although he modestly denies academic achievement and his inherent ability to get along with people, Bud is a promising man in his professional field as well as a popular personality in his class. Bud's family residence is in Hayward, California. His personal satisfaction with the Bay Area, along with the persuasive influence of his pro-Cal parents, inevitably led Bud to choose the Berkeley campus for his undergraduate work in physical education. While attending the University, he actively participated in intramural sports and was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. Besides the humanistic aspect of his prospective profession, Bud sincerely feels that physical therapy should be an integral part of comprehensive patient care whenever applicable. He states that this highly technical and speciali...

COMMENTS FROM THE UNION RECREATION SUPERVISOR [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
COMMENTS FROM THE UNION RECREATION SUPERVISOR Bud Alexander SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT! Just in case you haven't noticed, there's been a lot of activity going on in the Millberry Union athletic facilities over the past four years. For instance, during its first year of operation (1958—59) the Union Recreation Department served approximately 17,000 persons. (This many sign-ins were recorded at the athletic desk.) Last year (1961—62) the department served slightly over 50,000 persons, an average of approximately 150 persons per day. Total sign-ins to date amount to approximately 178,000 persons. It is a good feeling to see the facilities being used, however it is obvious that there are many union members who have not availed themselves of the oTportunity to do so. With this in mind, I should like to take this opportunity to again invite all of our members to use the facilities frequently. I, too, recommend as one wise educator has said, "When the mind is tired, exercise the body." For o...

Richard Seltzer placed 4th in the chess tournament. Milt Pedrazzi and Donald Kitazima placed 6th in the men's bowling doubles event.

WHO ARE THEY? MEDICAL STUDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
WHO ARE THEY? MEDICAL STUDENTS The medical road is a mighty long road. . . it begins with the decision to go to medical school. The preparation varies between 3 to 4 years of undergraduate University training. This includes basic requirements in the fields of chemistry, physics, and zoology; hopefully, one learns something in addition to getting good marks. Duringone's junior or senior year, he makes application to any medical school of his choice, and then awaits acceptance. Admission into the four year medical program is based on several factors: grades as an undergraduate, letters of recommendation, a nationwide admission test given to all premeds, and interviews at the school to which the applicant applies. From the individual's viewpoint he must weigh the merits of the institution at which he feels he will get the best training (an almost impossible task at the undergraduate level), where he would like to live for four years, and, of course, where he is accepted. At the Univers...
CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE WILLIAM HARRIS, Senior in Medicine While various devices may occasionally prove frustrating to the individual, certain paper dispensers are the first of a mutant series existing solely to defeat the aims of man. Consider, for instance, the paper towel machine. Getting the towel is by no means certain; depending on the style of machine, a variety of complications may arise. The most cleverly engineered of the species is of the nature of a mechanical aptitude test. In coaxing the dispenser to part with a metered quantity of paper towel, it is first necessary to push a button in the middle of the machine, in the process dropping any parcels, books, or clothes held under the left arm. After this, the other arm is used to turn the crank on the right side of the machine, thus releasing any parcels still held. The crank stops after a turn and the customer may then tear up, not down, enough towel to dry the first three digist of one hand. There is no way to...
MUSIC OPUS #1 [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 March 1963
MUSIC OPUS #1 There is no truer truth obtainable By mar, than comes of music. — Robert Browning In just about every part of the civilized and uncivilized areas of the world, music has been found in one form or another. Music was employed by all races in song, dance, instrumentation, and even discipline. Music gave primitive man an emotional outlet and vigorous excitement which provided for the maintenance of muscular and nervous gyOne of the primary elements of music structure (including melody, rhythm, harmony, and counterpoint) is rhythm. Rhythm was the most influential factor in bringing together song and dance. In primitive times the clapping of hands, or striking sticks together would often produce vigorous sing-song. The Rock and Roll of our present day is an example of rhythm in sing-song. Therefore, we see the blending of rhythm and chant very condusive to frantic body movement. How far have we progressed from the primitive epoch up to today? The Near and Middle East, India ...
