EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
EDITORIAL Now, with the hectic activity of registration finished, and the first week behind us, we can take a breather. Let us stop and look ahead. For some, this is the last year at the Medical Center before they go out into their professions. For others, this is the start of a long, four year grind. These years can be difficult or not; they can be pleasant or not; depending on the individual. Make use of the many facilities made available to you at the UCMC, such as the excellent new library, and student health. The library offers an excellent place to study and a marvelous collection of books. As for student heath, don't wait for them to call you for a check-up. See them if you don't feel well. They can catch something early whereas neglect could result in loss of much valuable school time. Student Government is an important phase of any school. Interest yourselves in your government, for it affects you. The council meetings are open—visit them and find out what is going on. Some...

FROM THE DESK OF THE UNION DIRECTOR [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
FROM THE DESK OF THE UNION DIRECTOR Among the congratulatory wires received on the occasion of the opening of the Millberry Union was one from Loren Kottner, my former boss, and the Director of the Union at Kansas State College in Manhattan. Quoting from Loren's telegram: "... A Union opening is like having a baby — even though you have months to prepare for it, the labor pains are terrific, and after you have it you are not quite sure how to take care of it." There is a fair amount of accuracy in Mr. Kottner's observation, since, at the present time our entire staff is consumed with! attacking and correcting minors operational difficulties cited thusj far. We are all especially ap-i preciative of the many excellent recommendations which have been placed in the Central Desk Suggestion Box, and I should like to comment briefly on certain of &gt; these at this time: Television —One suggestion succinctly asked, "Where in the Hell is the T.V. set?" I suspect that if they have T....
Soon to Appear [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
Soon to Appear Starting in the next issue, and as a regular feature in this newspaper, will be a column devoted to problems outside the realm of the Medical Center. This column will vary in subject matter, and will consist of items of interest concerning the world around us. Some of the subjects touched upon may be philisophical, and most will probably be controversial. It is hoped that these articles will invoke comment or criticism, good or bad, and is designed to stimulate interest in the Synapse as a more literary medium—not just a place where straight news and social items are aired. This column will be written by Yasin Balbaky, Editor for the School of Medicine, but it will in no way replace actual news from that school. It is directed to those people at the Medical Center interested in more than just "inside news," and it is hoped that this type of writing will broaden the scope and interest in Synapse.

Dental Students Council Meeting At the meeting on September 26th, it was decided that October 7 would be a good date for freshman elections. This date will give the freshmen sufficient time to get acquainted with one another, and also insures the freshmen quick organization to promote student leader representatives in the student body council.

THE SENIOR VIEWPOINT From School of Dentistry [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
THE SENIOR VIEWPOINT By ROG TENNYSON From School of Dentistry Registration is over, and give or take a patient or so, most of the seniors are hard at it in the clinic again . . . funny, though, the new name "senior" doesn't seem to help facilitate the dentistry . . . still having problems . . . but Don Dal Porto is doing pretty we 11... he spent the summer on emergency service . . . got lots of practice, too. Now he is wondering what good 372 cement fillings are toward graduation credit . . . we are too. And after last summer, it looks like the senior bachelor is almost a thing of the past, i.e., extinct. What with Gerry Geraldson, Morrie Corbett, Carl Schrieve, Jerry Yonder Ahe, Nick Barakos, Don Swatman, Jack Cottingham, Mike Heon, Chuck Soderstrom and Ken Knowles going over the hill into the woods of matrimony, there aren't too many of the unscathed left. . . must be something in it . . . Word is even out —from a usually unreliable source initialed Ed Arana —that Rudy Kopfer stol...
JUNIOR CLASS From School of Nursing [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
JUNIOR CLASS The Junior Class began a new academic year with a full schedule of activities, even though our census had been split since many of us moved Into the new Millberry Union. Our class began its activities with a "Big-Little Sister" Party to welcome our new class of freshmen nursing students. Each one of these girls has a "big sister" with whom she may discuss questions and problems that arise in her academic or clinical experience. We shall attempt to make these girls feel at home as soon as possible. On Sept. 22nd the Junior and Senior Classes had a "Curriculum Workshop" where we attempted to evaluate the nursing program as we have experienced it. This whole day was set aside for the sole purpose of. discovering the students' opinions and suggestions—in hopes that some of these suggestions could be utilized in planning the new curriculum for the nursing students of 1959. We, as a class, are anticipating a certain date at the end of the month of October that happens to be o...

SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IN ENGLAND- The National Health System [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 6 October 1958
SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IN ENGLAND- By RON STEIN The National Health System Being in England this summer, I decided to inquire personally about the mechanism and success of the British National Health System (abbreviated NHS), which has now been in operation there for ten years. In an article of this size it is impossible to provide a thorough discussion of the system, but I shall attempt to mention the important factors with which we should be familiar. There is general agreement in Great Britain that the cost of medical care, or a large part of that cost, should be shared amongst the community. The plain fact is that medical science has become so advanced and so elaborate, and hence so costly, that the ordinary citizen is unable to afford the expense of treatment for any serious illness. Certain types of surgical operations, for example, may involve from ten to twenty highly skilled individuals and cost the entire life savings of the patient. When medical care becomes too costly for t...
