June Marks Ground Breaking for UC Married Students' Apartments [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
June Marks Ground Breaking for UC Married Students' Apartments The next step in the master plan for U.C. Medical Center development will be taken by June 30, when construction of 150-160 married student apartments is scheduled to begin. An expanse of land overlooking Clarendon Boulevard is the location for the twelve to fourteen two-story apartment buildings which will offer one and two bedroom residences to any married students at the U.C. Medical Center. This project, first considered three or four years ago, gained impetus in April of 195' i when a government agency, The House and Home Finance Agency, made it known that money was available to colleges at low interest rates for housing. Plans were quickly drawn and approved by the Regents in June of that year. The two million dollars necessary will l&gt;e granted providing construction begins by June 30, 1958. The plans wili be open for bidding sometime this month. If all goes as expected, the completion date should be Spr...
new library The Big Move Is On [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
new library The Big Move Is On Since sometime in the 1860's, the School of Medicine at the University of California has had a library. At that time it served 6nly the Medical School — the Pharmacy and Dentistry libraries were separate. Not too much is known about the library's past, since most of the records were destroyed in the fire of 1906. At present the library is housed on the second floor of the old Medical School building, but the collection of books has far outgrown the capacity there. This makes it necessary to house a large part of the monograph collection, as well as some of the bound periodicals, in temporary underground areas thus causing them to be inaccessible to library users. These books, in the new library, will be on open shelves and available for use. The new library is located on the first, second and third floors of the south wing in the new Medical Sciences Increment. It will have adequate facilities for the present collection of approximately 120,000 bound v...
Board of Governor's Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
Board of Governor's Meeting Dr. Morton Weinstein, representing the graduate students on the Board of Governors of the Guy S. Millberry union, was elected vice-chairman, Wednesday, March 20th, to replace Scott Chilcott, who was forced to resign his office due to the press o£ business, but Scott will be able to retain his seat on the Board. The major portion of the meeting was devoted to consideration of the budget. A great deal of work has gone into the budget trying to predict the various demands for service which will be on the Union. The Food Servics Survey which was made the last week before vacation is one of the means by which the Board hopes to get good, useful information. Food Service will be one of the major items as far as expenses go. Salaries and the cost of the food to be prepared will be greater than forty percent of the total operating expenses, and bad guesses will cost a lot of money. The surplus which is expected to come from the profit of the bookstore will help t...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
EDITORIAL SYNAPSE—NEXT YEAR Several weeks ago letters were sent out to presidents of nil classes, schools, fraternities and clubs on the campus requesting that these officials be responsible for either electing or appointing a representative from their own particular group during the next academic year. We have received some replies, but our books will not close until we have heard from all of you. At the risk of we would like to again point out that Synapse is trying to be representative of the entire campus and cannot unless we receive cooperation from each and every group—including fraternities and wives clubs.

Synapse is here to help acquaint you with that which other groups are doing and to let other groups know what you are doing. We're reminded of the minister who traveled from town to town teaching and giving gu...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor: This is a purely subjective criticism of one of our major concerns today—education. I am hoping that it will stimulate others to contribute their own ideas or criticisms on the subject. ON EDUCATION: All over the U.S. the sudden light of interest has fallen on the system of education in our public schools. The main thought seems to be for a mass refbrm: "teach our children science while they're young"; "strengthen our sciences through our children"; etc. I say all this is well and good. Teach these children science before their minds are cluttered with puzzles such as "which western should I watch tonight?" Give them something worthwhile with which to occupy their minds and build up their interest in these things while their minds are still in the formative But be prepared for an erj «f 'psychotic machines' if such a combination is possible. I believe children can and do learn faster while they're young, and to teach them mathematics and science ...

SPORTS On Top of Old Baldy All Covered With Snow [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
SPORTS On Top of Old Baldy All Covered With Snow Yes, last week was beautiful —wasn't it. For two months we've been dreaming of a whole week in the snow. Late spring skiing is always great—corn snow, well packed slopes, lots of sun, this was going to be the week to end all weeks. We even packed the car so we could leave as soon as school was out. For those of you who got this far (and no further) we offer our condolences and for those of you who did manage—by some means or other to at least get up to the slopes—congratulations—we hope you had a good time being snowed in. For those of you who decided to wait until the Easter break instead of hitting the slopes between semesters we offer the above picture and the fotiowmg sickening story. Between semesters dental students Bob Smith, Jacques dc Lorimer, Rudy Kopfer, Clyde Cowman, Bob Nelson and his wife Phyllis, and Geri Zeis, an instructor in dental hygiene, went on a two-week trip which included stops to Sun Valley, Aspen, Colorado, ...
'The Male-Strom' [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 11 April 1958
'The Male-Strom' MONTH'S BEST QUOTE: Years ago, Irvin S. Cobb said, "If I ever go crazy, I want to go to Washington where no one will ever notice it." Who said times change. FASHION: There's a growing acceptance of tweed cloth hats of the type introduced by Rex Harrison in "My Fair Lady." With Perry Como, he has already helped popularize the cardigan sweater. . . . Speaking of cardigan sweaters, this Spring will see the take over of the bulky knit mercerized cotton cardigan. It has the lustrous sheen of silk at a cotton price and in clear colors. Of course, it's washable. . . . Not important yet, but growing, are formal -studs and cufflinks made of satin or grosgrain to match the tuxedo's lapels. FOR LEGAL BEAGLES: Warning to electric shaver users. Don't use the auto-home shaver while driving . . . it's both dangerous and agin' the law. Last month, following some advice to the letter, a bank robber who had grown a moustache just for a holdup, had his wife shave it off as he sped fro...
