ON THE HILL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
ON THE HILL by Jack Hockel and Bob Neumayr THE SYNAPSE IS BACK: The bad news came Friday, so we're back to raising havoc with the English language. We had just sort of started thinking that things were looking a little easier when the blow struck. Swatman tells us we have a new office right across from the nurses' dorm. He further says, "it's got advantages such as ... it is convenient from the standpoint of getting news." Innocent boy that he is, he says, "all we have to do is stand at the window and shout across the street at passing nurses." Wonder if he ever thought of just looking? Maybe the skeleton in the closet has been distracting him! # » a WHO'S HAVING PUN: The member of a Sanitation Department who was asked where he first met his bride to be? Softly he hummed, " 'Twas on a pile of debris that I found her." Or the Postman who cut a big hole in the bottom of his pouch? His motto was, "The mail must go through." Lastly, in an unseasonable hot day in the spring of 1606, Will...
The Sun Sometimes Shines [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
The Sun Sometimes Shines AND IT STILL RAINS: But that's the beauty of San Francisco. The showers which are such a,prevalent part of our weather these days are quite worthwhile when one can be sure that a beautiful sunny day is scon to follow. And we certainly do have many interspersed lovely days this time of year. This column is intended to augment those..few sunny days by presenting the brighter side of our life here at the Medical Center. HALITOSIS IS BETTER THAN NO BREATH AT ALL: No inferences, of course, but we have been presented with these tidbits of news which are undoubtedly of very general interest. . . . Some freshman nurses are collecting glassware from our unsuspecting businessmen and have adorned their rooms with such; they must be making milk glasses more attractive these days. . . . The poor unsuspecting patients of Moffitt Hospital are being administered to by a new deluge of neophyte nurses; good luck to all. . . . The Physical Therapists, according to Don Newman, ...

X-Ray Benefits Outweigh Hazards [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
X-Ray Benefits Outweigh Hazards Recent reports on the effects of radiation have failed to emphasize the tremendous benefits that have resulted from the use of x-rays for diagnostic and therapeutic radiology, Dr. Robert S. Stone, professor of Radiology at the University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, reported at a medical meeting here. The U.C. radiologist participated in a panel, "Radiation Hazards and What is Being Done About Them," at a meeting of the American Roentgen Ray Society. Dr. Stone noted that medical x-rays have: 1. Contributed significantly to medical developments .that have permitted an increase of about 20 years in life expectancy since 1900. 2. Played an important part in the 21-fold reduction in the tuberculosis death rate since the turn of the century. 3. Helped extend the usefulness of surgery by permitting diagnosis of numerous diseases while they are still surgically curable. Dr. Stone noted that radiologists have known, and sought to minimize,...
First Prize [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
First Prize Another recipient of first prize at the gun show was Rudi Muller who is well" known by everyone in the Dental School as the man who keeps the school running mechanically. Rudi, who had purchased a raffle ticket from Dr. Hartman, won first prize of a Springfield rifle. No ordinary rifle, this one had quite an interesting background. This rjfle was the 14,000 th one issued in 1917 out of countless millions which were manufactured and issued for use in World War I. But the barrel had the year 1942 inscribed on it which would indicate it had been reconditioned for use in World War 11.

SPORTS Sr. Pharmacy Joins Intramural League [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
SPORTS Sr. Pharmacy Joins Intramural League By Mits Fukumura The Sr. Meds were forced to drop out of the ASMC basketball league because of their heavy academic schedule. Throughout the season, they had to forfeit games—which they might have won—had they had enough players. However, the vacancy left by the Sr. Meds is being filled by the Sr. Pharmacy team. This team is composed by senior pharmacy students who do not belong ■to any fraternal organization. Although they do not have any chance for the championship, they are playing merely for the sport itself and the exercise. The Zips still lead the league with 10 wins and 2 losses. However, the Phi Delts are the LDS's are keeping the pressure on the first place team. The Psi O's are also making a bid for the top position after a slow start. The Delts, Soph Meds, Kappa Psi's trail the Psi O's in that order. The league standing as of Wednesday, February 19th is as follows: Won Ups 10 &gt;hi Delts 7 JDS 8 »si O 6 )elts 5 ioph Med...

"DOCTOR?" [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
"DOCTOR?" Nowdays there's little meaning For a person to be gleaning When a man attaches "doctor" to his name. He may be a chiropractor ■■'&gt;■■"■' Or a painless tooth extractor, He's entitled to the title just the same. Or perhaps he is a preacher Or a lecturer or teacher Or an expert who cures chickens of the pip. He may keep a home for rummies Or massage fat people's tummies Or specialize in ailments of the hip. : Everybody is a "doctor" From the backwood herb concocter To the man who takes the bunions from your toes. From the frowning dietitian To the snappy electrician Who shocks you loose from all the body's woes. So there's very little meaning For a sufferer to be gleaning When a man attaches "doctor" to his name. He may pound you, he may starve you, He may cut your hair or carve you, You have got to call him "doctor" all the same.
Etiology of Heart Disease [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
Etiology of Heart Disease Coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, may have its beginnings in a healing process. Evidence for this paradoxical suggestion has been reported by Dr. Henry D. Moon, associate professor of pathology at the University of California Medical Center, San Francisco. The U.C. scientist now believes that the lessons— both those of infancy and those that precede atherosclerosis In adulthood—are produced during the healing of minute arterial ruptures. They are thought to be analogous to the scar that remains after a skin wound has healed. Other factors complicate the picture, however, and must be considered in investigating the cause of the disease. Some of these are fat metabolism, hormonal patterns, and possible hereditary susceptibility..
Early Diagnosis Of Oral Cancer [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 28 February 1958
Early Diagnosis Of Oral Cancer By Campus News Service Examination of cells shed from the tissues of the mouth can contribute substantially to early diagnosis of oral cancer, three researchers at the University of California Medical Center, San Francisco, have found. Thejr report, to be published in the Journal of Dental Research, gives the first description of cases in which study of individual castoff cells resulted in earlier diagnosis of oral cancer than would otherwise have been achieved. The researchers also state that the technique may be used in detecting recurrence at a site previously treated for the disease. The U.C. investigators are Dr. Sol Silverman Jr., assistant professor of dental medicine, and Dr. Hermann Becks, professor of dental medicine, both of the School of Dentistry; and Dr. Seymour M. Farber, associate clinical professor of medicine in the School of Medicine.
