X N F.. -.J it I "Your concoction worked fine Dr. Oesper, but how do we get Larry Phillips back." Quality control at Hahnemann i" "I think the vagus is over there." on hemianopsia, or that hemiballism has nothing to do with crytorchidism. We worked our way down from the cortex through the maze of the internal capsule, the substantia nigra, the brachium pontis, until we finally arrived at the nucleus ambiguus - which it all was. Can we ever forget the day of the neuroanatomy final when the mercurial midget distributed what we thought were supplements to the Philadelphia telephone direc- tory and then announced, "all right you rascals, count 'em and make sure you have seventeen pages." A few of us are still waiting for that lecture that was supposed to tie everything together . . . or did we have it'??'? BIOCHEMISTRY had us going around in cycles. ln this course we had a lot of contact with our professors -- particularly after exams. The de- partment knew us by code number, except Dr. DeFrates, he knew every- one by their first name the second day after the course started. We learned the Krebs Cycle forward, backward and sideways and could trace the labeled carbon all the way from pyruvic acid to carbon dioxide. We studied the work of Dr. Alper's two uncles-Embden and Myerhof. Dr. Boyd beguilded us with the intricacies of the Urea Cycle and as a result we knew what happened to the N15 in hamburger - as long as it was served without onions. During the spring we had 6 weeks vacation as we worked on individual research proiects. The labs were filled with chickens, rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits - and even an occasional student. Our first attempt at venipuncture were tried with the production of much mental trauma and hematomas. PHYSIOLOGY stimulated us at T5 millesecond intervals. It took us 5 weeks to learn the names of the equipment. We killed dogs, decorticated cats, pithed frogs la few pithed backl, fudged kymographs and got to the very heart of the turtle. While Mr. Bechtel was teaching the humani- ties, Corbett was demonstrating man's inhumanity to man, and proved to Slifkin that the fist is quicker than the nose. We learned -- chronaxie, d'emblee, recruitment, rheobase, threshold, and latent period - and fatigue is what we got out of it. Dr. Scott was all heart. Dr. Reed's lectures gave us nervous exhaustion - so we slept. Then he tried temporal summation li.e., when successive stimuli which are too boring to evoke a response are applied to an afferent student, they may be made effective by increasing the rate - but don't bet on itl. We utterly destroyed Van Slyke's theories and derived lll new meth- ods for figuring out a CO2 - all without a single case of mercury poisoning. The animals in physio were either very uncooperative or very dumb. They more often than not did the opposite of what the texts described as normal. Saturday morning was always a dread time. We did not mind the tests as much as we wondered if we would understand the instructions in time to do the test. The technicolor movies ran at half speed with English narrators were always a big hit. . . June arrived and our first year of Medical school was completed,
