PSI OMEGA, ZIPS WIN IN FRAT LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 4 November 1958
PSI OMEGA, ZIPS WIN IN FRAT LEAGUE The first night of the intramural league for fraternity saw Psi Omega walloping Buildings and Grounds by a score of 55-14, and the Zips beating the Phi Delts, 50-39. Although these were only practice games, both Psi O and the Zips showed top form in getting their wins. Behind the 19 point out-burst by Duke Lewis, Psi O had little trouble overcoming an undermanned Buildings and Grounds team. Wadnizak contributed 17 points to the Psi O total while Teddy Abe was turning in an impressive floor game from his guard position. Jay Vierra led Buildings and Grounds scorers with 7 points. The game scheduled between Kappa Psi and Nu Sigma Nu was won on a forfeit by Kappa Psi as the Nu Sigs were unable to gather up a sufficient number of players. An intra-squad game was played by Kappa Psi and the few members of the Nu Sigma Nu team who did show up. The Zips, playing like the team to beat in the fraternity league, looked very impressive in their win over the Ph...

B L Unique [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 November 1958
B L Unique "Biomechanics. What does that mean?" This question is invariably asked by any person not familiar with the research which is being conducted on the fourth floor of the old U.C. Hospital Building. The Biomechanics Laboratory here at the University of California Medical Center is con- cerned primarily with the many and diverse problems of the amputee. Specifically—the belowknee amputee.

EDITORIAL Student Government [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 18 November 1958
EDITORIAL Student Government Now that the semester is almost half over perhaps it is time to reflect on what is going on. By now each school, as well as each class, has had the election of their officers. These people are holding office to serve all of us and not for their own selfish reasons. From time to time one can hear students complaining about this, that, and the other thing. Perhaps some new ruling was instituted in their school or some favorite procedure was eliminated. The students don't like it BUT, have they done anything.to preclude this happening? NO! It seems that the loudest complainers are the most apathetic when it comes to doing something. Had they made their wishes known to their class officers perhaps this unwanted situation might not have come to pass. It seems that a good majority of students regard a school as a large shell into which they enter in the morning and from which they emerge in the evening. This is not true. A school, as well as any other institut...
