EDITORIAL "THE FUTURE" [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
EDITORIAL "THE FUTURE" Financial security at last—For the present year, at least, Synapse will have no trouble paying its bills. At the last meeting of the Board of Governors it was voted to finance Synapse for at least this year. It is good to know that the need for a newspaper at the Medical Center has finally been recognized. It is our responsibility to justify this expenditure by producing a worthwhile publication. This is a task which cannot be performed by just a few. This is an activity by the students and for the students. Student help is still needed. May I urge you once again to come in and devote a small part of your time to the publication of Synapse. You may have noticed that the last issue was a week late and contained numerous errors. This was unavoidable. Due to the illness of some members of the staff, and no help from other sources, the entire load fell on two people. This, coupled with the late submission of copy threw us behind schedule resulting in a week's dela...
THE UNITED CRUSADE: Your 'One Big Give' for 1958 [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
THE UNITED CRUSADE: Your 'One Big Give' for 1958 The campus drive for the 1958 United Crusade is your annual opportunity to help support the work of some 250 Bay Area welfare and service agencies. A few points to remember: 1. The Medical Center has long been outstanding in the high proportion of its staff and employees who give to the United Crusade. Let's keep it up. 2. Success of the Crusade depends on your giving, and giving your fair share. It will be easier for you to give as much as you'd like to if, instead of making one cash donation, you pledge to make several contributions at intervals throughout the year. 3. Your donation through your Medical Center solicitor is the only one you will be asked to make. You won't be asked to give again at home, even if you live in another county. 4. That pledge card isn't doing anyone any good while it sits on your desk. Fill it out and get it in!
NOON CONCERTS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
NOON CONCERTS The Noon Concert of October 2H was an excellent program of vocal duets by Louise Carpenter and Dorothy Rowland. Mildred Strand accompanied them on the piano. These artists are pupils of Mrs. Mary Groom Jones, who is on the music faculty of Ihe University of California in Berkeley. Today's concert will be held in the Music Room of the Millberry Union for the first time.

Imbrie. and Bee- thoven, with Findlay Cockrell as the featured artist on the piano. Mr. Cockrell is winner of the Hertz Memorial Scholarship, and will soon be leaving for New York City to begin his study under this scholarship.

Library Paging of House Staff and Clinicians [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
Library Paging of House Staff and Clinicians The pagemaster electronic system has now been installed in the library for the paging of clinicians and house staff who working with patients and may be expecting emergency calls. The number of instruments is limited and therefore, must be reserved only for emergency calls. The system is one of signals and does not permit the transmission of messages. The doctor must communicate with telepage to receive his message. Best results will be obtained if the doctors will observe the following procedure: 1. Before coming to the library, inform your source of information to communicate with telepage if you are to be called. 2. Register at the information desk in the library for a pocket instrument. If you have not already informed telepage of your whereabouts then do so from the library telephone. 3. When you receive signal, please go to nearest doctor's phone and call telepage. (There is a doctor's phone on each floor of the library.) 4. When yo...
WANTED: One Gabber [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
WANTED: One Gabber In the last issue of Synapse it was promised that "On The Hill" would be returning in this issue. It seems though, I ha t Jack Hockel and Bob Neumayr are now Seniors, and they have just discovered that being a senior is not as easy as beinj,' a junior. In fact, being a senior just doesn't leave much in the way of spare time, period. Since it takes time to get the news, and then to write it up in a column of this type Jack and Bob just don't feel that they can do it. This leaves us with a sad predicament. A good number of comments have been received about "On The Hill," and everyone seems to want it, or a column of that type in the paper. Our problem—who to get to write it. If any ambitious students (from any school) wish to try their hand at column writing, we would appreciate hearing from them, and letting them try their hand.
Bewitching Hormone [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
Bewitching Hormone When Odysseus sailed past the Sirens, he plugged the ears of his crew with wax and had himself bound to the mast so that he might enjoy the siren songs, yet remain in safety. Now the Homeric charmers have been recalled to name a sex hormone just purified by Dr. Leonard Machlis of the department of botany, University of California, Berkeley. The hormone, from the water mold Allomyces, is produced by female garnets, attracts male matetes, and is called, aptly, sirenin.
Ants and Intellectuals [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
Ants and Intellectuals By YASIN BALBAKY opinion one doesn't have to know Greek philosophy to be a good doctor, executive, or a physicist. It is so time consuming to get a good education, and what do you get in return?— Nothing. In fact, an executive at times is better off without such an education." I had been participating in the conversation, but at this point I lapsed into silence. It was the first time in my life that I the word "intellectual" used with the intended connotation. "This is how language evolves" I reflected with enchantment, but also with distress. The speaker, without knowing it, was expressing a most intriguing trend in the thoughts of our times. Of course it is better to have an unsophisticated executive who can sit at his desk every day drawing charts and computing Chi Squares about his employees, buyers, machines, and production. It is good to have such a devoted and efficient man as long as the sole purpose of education becomes clearly identified as that of p...
