theme because of the many important changes which are occurring in every aspect of medicine.
Tremendous opportunities in the field of medical research have been opened by application of new technological advances. The team approach is rapidly becoming an effective way to attack medical problems. Medical education has two goals ... to heal the sick and to promote science.
During the OLD FRONTIER of medicine, men grossly described certain phenomena and were not able to get a basis for much actual treatment. Today, at the doorstep of the NEW FRONTIER, medicine has greatly reduced the death rate and has indeed changed the world.
Medical progress in the past four years has taken great strides, but in the future may be looked upon much as we look at the progress of medicine in the Middle Ages. It is with this in mind that the Class of 1963 selected the theme:

3DEDICA TION OF 1963 SKULL TO
By establishing its new medical research building this year, Temple University Medical Center has taken a giant stride towards promoting the new frontier of medicine. The Class of 1963 is pleased to dedicate its yearbook to a man who has helped Temple reach great heights in the past and who shall be an integral part of its new frontier. Thus we salute Dr. Robert H. Hamilton ... a great medical educator.
When a student has successfully completed the course in Biochemistry at Temple Medical School, he can safely say he has mastered many of the basic concepts. That this is so is due to a great extent to Dr. Hamilton, who established the standards of accomplishment which we students must attain. To surmount the multiple difficulties, innate in supervising the instruction of a basic medical science demands a teacher of great merit, a man of sincere interest in the student, a man of extensive professional qualification. Such a man is Dr. Hamilton. He is a medical educator who believes that not only must academic learning provide factual information and stimulate one to probe and reason, but it must also create a genuine desire in the student to seek further knowledge.
Robert Houston Hamilton was born in Corsicana, Texas on September 12, 1906. His father, a former professor of Humanities at Baylor University and later president of Howard Payne College, was then a Judge in the Texas judiciary. His mother, a teacher by profession, personally undertook her son’s schooling until he entered high school. At the age of sixteen he entered the University of Texas. In his early years, his chief interest lay in mathematics. During high school he became a part-time tutor of this subject, and then majored in mathematics at college. While in college, he began to focus his energies on chemistry. The year 1926 brought his Bachelor’s degree, and the following year a Master’s degree in organic chemistry.
In 1927, he left Texas for the University of Minnesota where he became an instructor in biochemistry. He spent seven productive years there, teaching and studying. He attained a Doctorate in biochemistry in 1933. A steadily growing interest in medicine finally culminated in Hamilton’s receiving an M.D. degree two years later.
HAMILTON Ph.D., M.D.
Throughout this time academic pursuits were not his sole interest. While in college, he met a charming University of Texas co-ed. Miss Angie Stiles. A few years later, during his stay at Minnesota. l)r. Hamilton re-met this young lady, now I)r. Stiles, a resident in Obstetrics-Gynecology. They were married in 1933. The following year was one of travel for the Hamiltons. He was awarded a National Research Council Fellowship for study in Europe. The Doctors Hamilton spent a very enjoyable year working and visiting many of the lesscr-seen parts of England. Holland, and Switzerland.
After a short tenure teaching physiology at Minnesota, on his return from Europe. Dr. Hamilton was invited by Temple University to accept an assistant professorship in the Department of Biochemistry and to become the director of the hospital chemistry laboratory. January. 1936, marked the beginning of an association which has now spanned almost three decades, a period rewarding for both Dr. Hamilton and the medical center. Eight years after his arrival at Temple, in 1944, he was appointed Head of the Department of Biochemistry.
During the early years of World War II, feeling that his medical services might be required. Dr. Hamilton filled a void in his extensive professional career — that of internship. He completed this requirement at Temple University Hospital over the course of two years, while still executing his teaching duties.
5Dr. Hamilton’s wife, Dr. Angie Hamilton, a woman of professional achievement in her own right, was an Associate in Physiology at Temple for some years after private practice. She later left Temple to assume a research position in the Harrison Department of Surgical Research of the University of Pennsylvania. Today, retired from medicine, she is an accomplished sculptress and painter.
Dr. Robert Hamilton is a man whose time and talents are occupied by many things. He has long been active in professional societies, having held the chairmanships of the Physiological Society of Philadelphia and the Biochemist’s Club of Philadelphia. His duties at the medical center are concerned not only with teaching and research, but also extend into administration. He is a member of the Admissions Committee, Graduate Study Committee, Fels Foundation Management Committee, and is one of the faculty representatives on the University Trustees’ Medical School and Hospital Committee. He is also a Counselor to the Temple Chapter of the Society of the Sigma Xi. The Hamiltons take an active role in church activities, Dr. Hamilton having served as a deacon of the Second Baptist Church in Germantown. An admitted do-it-yourself proponent, he has constructed a Hi-Fi recording set, and possesses a fine set nf nower tools to handle all the caroentrv
6in his home. In addition to these pursuits, he somehow still finds the time and energy to return to Texas every summer, where he helps supervise the family farm on the Gulf Coast.
Dr. Hamilton is particularly interested in the development of clinical applications of analytical methods. He has authored many papers dealing with this topic, mainly pertaining to quantitative analyses in biological materials.
Having performed so productively in the past, Dr. Hamilton now looks towards the future with anticipation. The advent of our Research Building has signaled expansion of the biochemistry department both in staff and in research programs. All projects of a biochemical nature undertaken at Temple University, at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels, will be centrally coordinated from the departmental office. New areas of investigation will be explored in both the basic and clinical sciences. Much is being done in cooperation with the Departments of Surgery. Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dermatology, and Cardiology.
It is with a great deal of pleasure that we, the Class of 1963, dedicate our SKULL to you, Dr. Robert H. Hamilton, in recognition of the services you have rendered to Temple University, to its students, and to medicine.

Now what do we say? We say that during his working years he will contribute to social security, as he has in the case of his retirement, twelve or thirteen dollars a year. When he becomes ill, or she becomes ,11 over a long penod of time, he first pays ninety dollars, so that people will not abuse it. But then lets say he has a bill of fifteen hundred dollars. This bill does not solve everything but lets say its fifteen hundred dollars, of which a thousand dollars are hospital bills. This bill will pay that thousand dollars in hospital bills. And then 1 believe that he, and the effort that he makes and his family, can meet his other responsibilities. (Now various alternative plans.)
— In the first place, there isn't one person here who is not indebted to the doctors of America. Children arc not bom on an eight-hour day. All of us have been the beneficiaries of their help. This not a campaign against doctors, because doctors have joined with us.
This is a campaign to help people meet their responsibilities.
— We do not cover doctors' bills here. We do not affect the freedom of choice. You can go to any doctor you want. The doctor and you work out your arrangements with him.
— And then I read that this bill will sap the individual self-relaiance of Americans. I can’t imagine anything worse, or anything better, to sap self-reliance, than to be sick, alone, broke
— or to have saved for a lifetime and put it out in a week, a month, two months.
— This argument that the government should stay out, that it saps our pioneer stock, I used to hear that argument when we were talking about raising the minimum wage to a dollar and a quarter.
— Nobody in this hall is asking for it for nothing. They are willing to contribute during their working years. That is the important principle which has been lost sight of.
— What we arc concerned about is not the person who has not got a cent but those who saved and worked and then get hit.
— In closing, let me say that on this issue and many others we depend upon your help. This is the only way we can secure action to keep this country moving ahead, to have places to educate our children, to have decent housing, to do something about the millions of young children who leave our schools before they graduate.
___ We ask you, the citizens of this country, the responsible and thoughtful doctors, the
hospital administrators, all those who face this challenge of educating our children, finding work for our older people, finding security for those who have retired, all who are committed to this effort of moving this country forward: Come give us your neip.
9New Frontiers . . . Aerospace Medicine
Men have reached space and medicine must necessarily broaden its endeavors to preserve them in their new and unfamiliar environment.
The development of Aerospace Medicine and its increasing complexity can be followed by the projects of past and present. In the World War I era, there were basic studies on human tolerance to lowered oxygen tension, psychologic testing, work on goggles, vision in aging pilots, cockpit lighting and color blindness. In the World War II period, studies were undertaken on color perception, night vision, effects of noise and gunfire on hearing, effects of carbon monoxide in cockpits and decompression sickness. At the present time, research goes on concerning water problems in space flight, planetary environments, weightlessness, algal systems to supply man’s respiratory requirements in space, effects of cosmic radiation, irradiation and bacterial invasion, vectorcardiography, adrenal function and stress, and
HYPOXIC HYPOXIA DEMONSTRATION A total of 5 low pressure chambers located at the School of Aerospace Medicine. Brooks AFB, Texas, are used for the purpose of training students such as flight surgeons, flight nurses, physiological training officers and technicians. These chambers will simulate barometric pressure changes at altitudes from sea level up to approximately 200,000 feet.
In this picture, the inside observer watches the subject’s performance ability prior to removal of his oxygen mask. Subsequent to the removal of the mask the subject is exposed to a rarified atmosphere which is simulated by the low pressure chamber.

retinal damage from nuclear phenomena.
Most of the advances in this field have been at the initiation of the military sendees. In 1953, recognition of the tremendous importance of aerospace medicine led to provisions for certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine in Aviation Medicine. Tims, under the impulse of increased application of private and commercial flying, what began as strictly a military endeavour has attained the formal status of a specialized field of medicine. Requirements for certification are met by a three year residency, including one year leading to a degree of Master of Public Health.
Opportunities to practice Aerospace Medicine may be found in the military services, aircraft manufacturing corporations, the NASA, and commercial and federal research laboratories. The demand for physicians can only increase. Research, clinical practice and actual space flight are all open to the adequately trained M.D. His rewards and challenges are figuratively and literally out of this world.
10New Frontiers . . . Medical Aid to Less Developed Nations
Although the conduct of foreign aid programs is under continual Congressional and public scrutiny, there is little question that such proposals arc necessary, both as moral obligation and political strategy. A genuine desire to assist under privileged nations is evident in many of the technicians, educators and administrators sent abroad, but the question of political policy cannot be ignored, even in so “non-political” a field as medicine. Anyone who goes abroad represents this country and its ethic; his presence alone is a consequence of the humanitarian and political objectives of foreign aid.
The demand for concrete evidence of cash assistance is understandable, but the pitfalls of dollar diplomacy are well known. Installation of dazzling equipment is accompanied by instruction in proper maintenance and a reasonable supply of spare parts. Less spectacular but more significant are the improvements made by programs in medical education. Distribution of vaccines, construction of hospitals and field clinics will control epidemics and reduce mortality for the moment, but they are only stopgap measures unless sustained by continuing programs in medical training.
Every aid program must be adjusted to the physical and cultural climate of every nation. American medicine, as such, can only be practised in the United States; it cannot be grafted onto another society, no matter how great the medical competence or how ancient the history of practise. successful program must be pragmatic and flexible; so must the people running it.
New Delhi WaterNew Frontiers at Temple
The editors of this yearbook have tried to chose eight representative examples of various new frontiers being approached at Temple. The following were chosen as they best indicate the new frontiers in both basic science research and clinical medicine, both organic and functional illness. Unfortunately, space unjustly allows such a small sample.
The Cardiovascular Research Center
The Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center of the Temple University Medical Center was opened in February, 1963. Established by a seven year grant of $1,895,584 by the National Institutes of Health, it is one of several such centers in leading hospitals throughout the country. Designed to provide facilities for multidisciplinc clinical research in the broad field of cardiovascular diseases, the center is directed by William L. Winters, Jr., M.D.
The unit is located on the second floor of the Main Building. It provides facilities for ten patients, with a specially trained nursing staff, and a diet kitchen Laboratories provide the means for intensive diagnostic and investigative studies irt the areas of biochemistry, pulmonary function, cardiac catheterization and angiology, renal function and psychosomatic medicine. Four physicans are assigned to the center on a full-time basis: a cardiologist, radiologist, pulmonary physiologist, and a biochemist.
Members of the Medical Center Staff, after approval of their project, admit patients to the unit where they arc studied and treated in cooperation with the full-time physicians associated with the center. In return for their cooperation the patients are relieved of any financial obligation to the hospital or their physician while under the care of the center.
Dr. Winters stated his goals for the center in his remarks at its dedication. He stated that he expects the center to significantly enchance all phases of research and teaching activity in the cardiovascular field, and to stimulate young investigators to enter clinical research. He emphasized that the most basic goal, of course, is to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
About twenty years ago, with the conquest of a few-crippling extracardiac deformities, began the modern era of cardiac surgery. The past ten years have seen rapidly conceived technics applied to many intracardiac lesions and though greeted enthusiastically, meeting in many cases with only temporary success. Too often the blind explorations of digits and instruments within the chambers of the heart led to failure or an early relapse of symptoms. The limits of surgery in the functioning heart have thus been slow to be defined. Yet, the potentialities of a visual repair on a non-functioning heart were readily appreciated.
Various methods have been attempted to still the beating heart so that a more accurate procedure can be carried out. Many such attempts have resulted in irreversible damage to cardiac tissue. Hypothermia is one of the more current methods in use but long term appraisal still awaits tabulation.
The advent of open heart surgery has enabled thousands of patients to carry on an improved status and in many instances has reversed a life threatening situation. The development and continued efforts to perfect the heart-lung machine have been a milestone in valvular correction and replacement. The surgeon now has the basic armamentarium to attack the defective heart. Yet, much is still left to be learned and perfected concerning this throbbing mass.
Cardiovascular efforts at Temple University Hospital have recently expanded to include a cardiac surgery department under the skilled hands of Dr. Pavla and cardiovascular research expansion. The success of such progress depends upon the combined efforts of the contributing departments of radiology and cardiology with its special sub-division of cardiac catheterization.
Comprehensive Medicine Clinic
In October and November, 1962, Dr. William Steiger, Director of the Comprehensive Medicine Program at Temple, completed a trip sponsored by the World Health Organization through Israel, Czechoslovakia, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. He has made many interesting observations on the medical care in these countries.
While the organization, politics, and economics of medical care vary greatly from country to country, the dedication to service of the individual physicians and the ready availability of the most advanced technical know-how was everywhere apparent to Dr. Steiger. In Israel, where half of the population is composed of relatively uninodernized Asians, the emphasis of health services is on sanitation, maternal and infant mortality, tuberculosis, etc. However, in the Netherlands and Great Britain as in the United States, where these problems are already well managed, it is possible to concentrate more on mental illness, chronic disease, and the problems of old age. Dr. Steiger points out that it is with these problems that comprehensive medicine and indeed all general practice must develop means to deal more effectively. He believes that this will be achieved bv the application of the principles which are emphasized to Temple students in Comprehensive Medical Clinic.
The Medical Clinic at Temple is unusual in medical education with its emphasis on Comprehensive Medicine. This concept considers patients not as diseases which vary in interest according to their nature (mitral stenosis being more interesting than chronic depression), but as people, each one deserving the utmost interest and concern of the physician. This requires an understanding of patients as people and not just as incidental vehicles for disease processes. The Temple student is stimulated to develop this understanding and to thoughfully observe the reactions of both his patients and himself. By developing self awareness
12of his attitudes and prejudices, the student is better able to treat his patient rationally rather than emotionally.
The Comprehensive Medicine Department is also associated with the Center for Community Studies which, under Dr. Herman J. Niebuhr, is attacking many of the social problems of the North Philadelphia area. The Center has recently received a large grant from the Ford Foundation, some of which will go for study of a possible Community Health Center.
During the summer of 1958, the acquisition of an artificial kidney by the Surgical Research Department extended the special services available at TUH. A special committee was set up headed by Carmen T. Bello, M.D., Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Internal Medicine as chairman, Roger W. Scvy, M.D., Ph.D., Professor and Head of Department of Pharmacology as basic science advisor, Terry T Hayashi, M.D., Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dominic A. DcLaurenlis, M.D., Associate in Surgery, and William D. Winters, Jr.. M.D., Associate i.n Internal Medicine. This team studied the techniques and principles and solved the technical problems of applying the artificial kidney to the clinical situation.
The principles involved in vivodialysis depend on the interposition of a scmipcrmeablc membrane between the patient’s blood and a specially prepared chemical bath. Factors involved determining the direction of flow of ions and molecules across this meinbrancc include concentration gradients, hydrostatic pressures, and the size and configuration of the particles relative to the size of the “pores" in the mcmbrancc. Urea, uric acid, creatinine, and other retention products have small molecules and arc freely diffusible.' Water, salts, and glocosc are also freely diffusible allowing for rapid correction of electrolyte abnormalities The membrane is so construced that bacteria, protein, and cellular elements of the blood will not pass through. This differential diffusion is known as dialysis.
During dialysis the patient’s heparinized blood is taken from the radial artery to a pumping apparatus that propels the blood under high pressures through twin cellophane coils. These coils are immersed in a tank containing 100 liters of dialyzing fluid. After the blood has crossed the
entire length of coil it is returned, dialyzed, to the patient via an available vein. The procedure takes about six hours and as much as 100 grams of urea can be removed from a uremic patient in this time. The surface area of the semipermeable membrane approximates 18,000 square centimeters. The quantity of blood exposed to this membrane during a dialysis is equivalent to fifteen times the patient’s blood volume.
The artificial kidney is only an adjunct in the management of renal failure. The best indication for- artificial dialysis is the severe form of acute renal failure which is most likely reversible. It has been and is being used in some medical centers on the patient with chronic renal insufficiency. Presently there is no such program at TUH.
Many serious complications can arise from vivodialysis. The artificial kidney is safe and effective only in relation to the knowledge, skill and experience of its operators.
13New Frontiers at Temple
One of the several current basic research projects at the Temple University Medical Center is being carried out by the O. B.-Gyn. Department under the direction of Dr. T. Terry Hayashi. That the O.B.-Gyn. Department is involved in basic research illustrates the ramification that a clinical problem can present in an effort to find a solution.
Several years ago Dr. T. Terry Hayashi became intrigued by the lack of understanding of the rather common obstetrical entity toxemia of pregnancy. The broad category, toxemia of pregnancy, together with hemorrhage and infection accounted for most of the mortality associated with pregnancy.
Dr. Hayashi's preliminary investigations into the physiology of the placenta directed him toward a continually more detailed study of its biochemical activity. From previous studies it seemed apparent that removal of the placenta was the one definitive means of cure, suggesting its possible etiologic role by means of malfunction. A possible clue to malfunction was the phenomenon of hyperuricemia in toxemic women, which cannot be adequately explained on a renal basis. Since uric acid is the end product in man of purine catabolism, it was reasoned that the toxemic placenta may have altered nucleic acid metabolism.
The Biochemistry Department provided encouragement, guidance, and initially some facilities for preliminary studies. A program for enzymatic study of the nucleic acid metabolism of the human placenta was set up and the National Institute of Health approved and sponsored the program. In 1959 active work was begun in several small spare rooms on the seventh floor of the Medical School Building.
To date, no significant difference between the nucleotide catabolism of normal and toxemic placenta have been uncovered, but in the process much of the purine and pyrimidine metabolic pathways have been elucidated and were reported at the last Federation meeting.
Methods for reliable separation of the various purine and pyrimidine compounds in human serum arc now being perfected and the systemic changes in nucleic acid metabolism as reflected in the maternal serum will be studied this coming summer.
Radiological physiology was begun at Temple by Dr. W. Edward Chamberlain over twenty-five years ago to study physiological mechanisms important in clinical medicine. A large research complex has arisen out of his efforts, the projects of which involve the Departments of Radiology, Physiology, Medical Physics, Medicine, and the Cardiovascular Research Center. This group, now under the leadership of Drs. Herbert M. Stauffer and M. J. Oppenheimer, constitutes one of the foremost team of investigators in the field. Many of the discoveries and developments pioneered by Dr. Chamberlain, former Chairman of the Department of Radiology, Drs. Herbert M. Stauffer, M. J. Openheimer, Bert R. Boone, Thomas M. Durant, George C. Henny, and others have become valuable tools both in medical research and in clinical practice.
Stereoscopic biplane angiography and angiocardiography developed at Temple have made possible three-dimensional study of functioning cerebral vessels, tumor circulation, collateral flow around thromboses, and the dynamics of cardiac chambers.
Cinefluorography, or the “Xray movie," was another technique developed to study physiological events in vivo. Imagine, intensifiers, which brighten objects as many as three thousand times, combined with high speed exposure cameras have eliminated blurring of fast moving tissues and dark room veiwing. Most importantly the image intensifier has obviated the high doses of patient irradiation once necessary in these studies. Cinefluorography has further been refined by double contrast techniques combining carbon dioxide and diodrast dye in cardiovascular investigation. Cameras have enabled simultaneous recording of phono-cardiograms, electrocardiograms, carotid artery pulsations, and other associated data in the same photograph. Cinefluorography has enabled radiologists all over the world to observe cardiac valvular function, swallowing mechanisms, pericardial effusions, cardiac chambers, and flow patterns inthe aorta, vena cavae and other peripheral vessels.
Electrokymography, designed at Temple in 1945 by Drs. Chamberlain, Boone, and Henry, has been used extensively in Europe in studying cardiac border movements and silhouette densities. It is based on recording changes in movement and density of the heart onto a fluoroscopic screen and converting the picture into electrical patterns.
These are only a few of the projects on which Dr. Stauffer's group has been engaged. They serve to reemphasize the leading role Temple has played in the field-of radiologic research and its clinical application.
For the past fifteen years, Drs. Wycis and Spiegel have been working with new surgical methods in an effort to devise surgical treatment for diseases of the brain. Perhaps the best known contribution of this distinguished Temple team has been the application of stereotaxic surgery to such disorders as Parkinsonism. In the late nineteen thirties and early nineteen forties surgeons around the world, in particular a Dr. Mayers at Iowa, stumbled onto the area of the brain responsible for the shaking and tremor seen in Parkinsonism and other such disorders — the area of basal ganglia Now it remained for surgeons to find a way to hit that target area in the brain without unduly harming other areas.
The first step was taken by the team at Temple University Medical Center, headed by world famous neurophysiologist, Dr. Ernest Spiegel, and one of his brilliant American students, Dr. Henry Wycis. Together they developed a special machine for aiming electrodes into localized areas of the brain. This device is called a stcreoencephalotome. Then the two men devised a new kind of brain map enabling doctors, by mathematical calculations, to find the exact location of any brain center.
Through the use of the stereoencephaloiome and the brain atlas Drs. Spiegel and Wycis have been able to pass electrodes into the basal ganglia and destroy parts of such brain centers.
Today the two men continue to work exploring new centers in the brain, looking for new and better methods of application of the stcreoencephalotome. Such disorders as cerebral palsy and epilepsy also may be helped by the continued work of these two great pioneers.
The Samuel S. Fcls Research Institute has its inception in 1933 and Dr. Harry Shay has been its Director since then. The major areas of research being investigated are gastroenterology, both basic physiology and clinical research, and cancer research. The complete personnel of the Institute
now numbers sixty-two, including seven physicians, four Ph.Ds, three with Masters, along with many technicians at the Bachelor adadcmic level. The facilities are curently housed in the Medical School and at Barton Hall Until the new research building is available for occupancy, the latter houses the laboratories of Dr. Sidney Weinhouse. who joined the Institute in January 1962, as Associate Director of the Institute as well as Professor of Biochemistry in the Medical School.
’lTte Institute will also occupy the seventh and eighth floors in the new- research building, thus, greatly enlarging its present facilities. This will permit an increase of our research staff. Several additional senior investigators are contemplated and one very important investigator, Dr. Michael Shimkin, will be joining both the Medical School and the Institute in July. Dr. Shimkin is now Associate Director for field studies of the National Cancer Institute and Scientific Editor of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. He is also Chairman of the Ad Hoc Research Advisory Committee on Breast Cancer for the American Cancer Society. Dr. Shimkin will be Professor of Medicine in the Medical School and Chief of Cancer Biology in the Institute.
The expanding Institute currently has budget of over $500,000.
In gastroenterology the research areas have included basic physiology, gastric secretion and motility, pancreatic function with the development of an adequate pancreatic function profile. In the liver area, jaundice and sensitization of the liver to drugs have been the major areas of investigation.
The Fcls Research Institute has been in a large measure responsible for the development of the rat as an experimental tool in gastric secretion. One such preparation, in use very extensively for many years and referred to in the literature as the Shay rat, has been the experimental tool used by investigators in over five hundred publications. Dr. Komarov and Dr. Bralow have recently developed a chronic gastric fistula in the rat which promises to enhance even more the value of this animal in research in gastrointestinal physiology. We expect to utilize this preparation in the detailed study of the effect of the endocrine glands on gastric secretion over the next two or three years.
In the cancer area the Institute has developed two major methods of investigation. One, is a method for the induction of myelogenous leukemia in the rat which is readily transferred. This preparation has been shipped to more than forty research laboratories around the world where the preparation is in use for research in leukemia. Another important tool that has been developed in the laboratory is a method for the development of breast cancer in female rats in very high incidence and the study of this tumor to show that in its hormonal relationships it very closely mimics the behavior of human breast cancer.
In the past two years this system has been modified to produce reproducible breast cancer in low incidence, a system that will lend itself admirably for the study of cocarcinogcnic and promoting agents. Particularly applicable will this system be for a search for these agents in foods and food additives. Furthermore, our method for the induction of breast cancer in the rat has also made possible the development of a system for the study of cancer chemotherapeutic agents. It is for the development of this system that the Institute was awarded a contract by the Cancer Chemotherapy National Service Center some two years ago. The biochemical studies are concerned largely with the chemistry of the cancer cell and with glucose metabolism
15The Temple University Medical Center has grown from humble beginnings since its inception in 1901, into a vast institution which has served and is serving both the community and the medical profession. Close to 5000 physicians have been graduated and hundreds of post-graduates have, been trained as interns and residents. Countless patients have received care, both as in-patients and in the clincs. In 1962 alone more than 25,000 patients were admitted to the hospital and in excess of 200,000 visits were made to the clinics.
This institution, being a center of medical education, has another role which it must fulfill and that is in the field of basic medical research. Basic research in the health sciences is at the very heart of medical progress. It not only strengthens the foundations of basic medical knowledge, but it broadens and enriches those who participate in it. The teacher who participates in research is better equipped to create an environment which will inspire the student and stimulate his curiosity. The student, whether he becomes a researcher or a clinician, will benefit from any exposure he has had to basic research. After such exposure he will not accept all data as factual without question.
Temple has risen to meet this challenge. In the last decade, research at Temple has grown by over 1000 per cent. The facts speak for themselves. The money available for research in the year 1951-52 was around $250,000, while in the year 1961-62, the money available for research approached $3,500,000. Although research at Temple had grown at an astounding rate, the space available for research had remained almost the same. Three years ago it became obvious that if research was to continue expanding at its present rate, more physical space for research and research alone would be required. In 1961, a grant from the U.S. Public Health Service and the Samuel S. Pels Fund made it possible for construction to begin on a modern basic science research building. This building will have space available for the research efforts of all the basic medical sciences. It’s opening in the spring of 1963 marked another milestone in the efforts of Temple to meet the challenge of the future.

The appointment of Dr. Leroy E. Burney as Vice-President of Health Sciences indicates an awareness of the changing role of the Medical Center in both the community which it serves and in the University of which it is a part. On the one hand, he must determine how the total health needs of this area can be best fulfilled by the several health science schools and their facilities. On the other, he must coordinate the health science schools and relate their activities to those of the entire University. As part of the latter function, he he is the coordinator for the University’s plan of expansion in the North Philadelphia area. His objective is to meet the needs of all of the schools of Health Sciences without duplication of function or facilities.
Dr. Burney was graduated from Butler College. After receiving his M.D. degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine, he served his internship at the Public Health Service Hospital in Chicago. Following a year’s study as a Rockefeller Fellow at Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health, he received a Master’s Degree in Public Health in 1932, His early work in the control of venereal disease led to an appointment with the War Shipping Administration during World War II. After serving as District Health Director of New Orleans and State Health Officer of Indiana, he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Public Health Service, Bureau of State Services in 1953. Three years later, he was designated Surgeon-General of the Public Health Service by President Eisenhower.
Dr. Burney’s ability as an administrator has proven to be more than adequate for the complex task of integrating the multiple needs and functions of the Health Science segments of the University.In our Freshman year at Temple, Dr. Robert M Bucher was appointed Dean of the Medical School. The ensuing years have been exciting ones for our Dean and for us. The Medical Center has grown remarkably, and it has been our privilege to have been witness to and a part of that growth. All of this is directly attributable to Dr. Bucher’s boundless vitality and questing intellect.
Dean Bucher received his M.D. degree from Temple in 1944. After serving a internship here, he spent a tour of duty in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, and then returned to Temple for a residency in surgery. His surgical proficiency led to an assignment as Associate Professor of Surgery. He became Assistant Dean of the Medical School in 1957, and, when Dr. Parkinson retired in 1959, Dr. Bucher became his successor.
Dean Bucher’s understanding of student problems often surpasses that of the student himself. He is acutely aware of the changing nature of the physician’s roles in the new frontier of the medical world. Along with other educators, he is searching for better solutions to the many problems involved in medical education. Under hirn Temple has participated in many new' pursuits, such as cooperation in the venture to establish a medical school in Ghana. We feel he is an outstanding example of the type of men who are establishing the higher standards of the new medical frontier, both here at Temple and throughout the entire country.

Dean of the Medical School
Ginny HarrArthur D. Nelson, M.D.
Assistant Dean of the Medical School
Dr. Arthur D. Nelson was appointed Assistant Dean in 1961. The necessity for this position was a direct result of the growth in size and complexity of the Medical School. Dr. Nelson was first known to us as an able lecturer on environmental health from our first year course in Public Health and Preventive Medicine. We welcomed his addition to the administrative staff of the school. In his subsequent relationship with us he has also shown an acute awareness of the special problems and needs of the medical student. His numerous functions include: medical school admissions, student affairs, plant construction and maintenance, and health maintenance. His capable handling of these activities is now well known to all of us.
Dr. Nelson was graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point with a B.S. degree in military engineering in 1944. After three years of troop duty, in the U.S. and Europe, and another three years as an engineering officer in Honduras, he enrolled in the Graduate School of Engineering at Harvard University from which he received an M.S. degree in civil engineering. He then returned to West Point to teach physics and chemistry. In 1953, he enrolled at Temple Medical School. After being graduated in 1957, he served a year of internship and another as chief resident physician at Montgomery Hospital in Norristown, Pennsylvania. An interest in occupational medicine led to several positions in this field.
In addition to his present activities, Dr. Nelson and his wife, Dr. Sarah Burton Nelson conduct an active general practice.
20Dr. Bert R. Boone’s appointment to the position of Assistant Dean for Research exemplifies the increasing importance of this sphere of activity at Temple. His main function is to coordinate the various research projects of the school and hospital staff. With the advent of multiple facilities offered by the new research building and the new research wing of the hospital, he has no mean task.
Dr. Boone received his M.D. degree from the University of Michigan School of Medicine in 1931. He then entered the Public Health Service as an intern at the U.S. Marine Hospital in New Orleans. In 1940, he became County Health Officer for Clay and Bradford Counties in Florida after serving in clinical positions at the Charity Hospital, New Orleans and the Staten Island Marine Hospital. Two years later he was appointed Chief Medical Officer of the U.S. Coast Guard. Beginning in 1944, he spent four years at Temple University Medical Center in cardiovascular physiology and roentgenology research. This work led to the development of electrokymography, a technique in which Temple was a pioneer. He then left Temple to become Chief of the Laboratory of Technical Development of the National Institutes of Health. He was designated Medical Director of the Research Fellowship Unit. Grants and Training Branch, National Heart Institute in 1956, serving in this capacity until 1961 when he accepted his present appointment at Temple.
Dr. Boone is vitally concemd with the relationship of research to the totality of medical affairs in our society. Under Dr. Boone’s supervision and coordination, we can be assured that Temple will continue to be a source of ever expanding, frontiers of knowledge in the medical sciences.

W. Wayne Babcock, A.M., M.D., LL.D., Sc.D., F.A.C.S.
He loved the truth and always sought it.”
Dr. W. Wayne Babcock, world famous surgeon and medical educator, and Emeritus Professor of Surgery, died at his home on February 23, 1963. He was 90 years old. Dr. Babcock received his first M.D. in 1893 from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, spent a year as a resident physician in Salt Lake City, Utah, then came to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania for an additional year of medical education. He received a second M.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1895. During the next seven years, Dr. Babcock held various positions at Philadelphia General Hospital, and the Kensington Hospital for Women establishing his reputation. At the age of 31 he accepted the Chair of Gynecology at the Temple Medical College. In that same year, 1903, he accepted the Chair of Surgery at Temple Medical College. His teaching ability and operating skill brought Temple world-fame. He has been Emeritus Professor since his retirement in 1943.
Dr. Babcock was a man of courage, imagination, insight, and indefatigable stamina. He made many important contributions to the field of surgery, Perhaps his greatest medical contribution was represented by his forty years as a teacher, surgeon and chairman of the Department of Surgery at the
Temple University School of Medicine. Dr. William N. Parkinson, .former Dean, has described him as the outstanding man in the history of this medical school and hospital.
In 1928, Dr. Babcock published his textbook, Principles and Practice of Surgery, that became a recognized text in medical colleges throughout the country. It was revised in subsequent editions in 1944 and 1954. Among his major contributions were: the introduction of spinal anesthesia to American medicine, the introduction of alloy steel wire sutures, the introduction of his “lamp-chimney” sump drain, the Babcock vein stripping operation for varicose veins, a new technique for vaginal inguinal herniorrhaphy, a technique for the repair of divided nerves, and the well-known abdominoperineal proctosigmoidectomy for diseases of the sigmoid colon and rectum, commonly known as the “pull through” operation.
For these contributions and others. Dr. Babcock has been the recipient of many honors and honorary degrees, including one of the highest honors in medicine: the Distinguished Service Medal of the American Medical Association, awarded in 1954. His fine influence in the medical profession will long be felt.In Memoriam
John A. Kolmer,
M.S., M.D.,Dr. P.H., Sc.D., LL.D., L.H.D., F.A.C.P.
The Class of 1963 considers itself fortunate to have been a part of the era of Public Health and Preventive Medicine personified by Dr. John A. Kolmer. He was a teacher who made his subject enjoyable, and, more important, he possessed that quality that not only produced great things of himself but motivated others to greatness. His dedication and sincerity, wisdom and humility, inspired us all.
Few of us will ever forget his “fire and brimstone'' manner of delivering a lecture. We chuckled at times, but our respect for this man of medicine was dauntless. As the years pass and each of us has the opportunity to put into practice Public Health and Preventive Medicine, his ideas and advice will continue for fortify our medical armamentarium.
Dr. Kolmer achieved world-wide recognition through his work in serodiagnosis. He was a pioneer in the research for a vaccine against poliomyelitis. He authored numerous books and articles and was the recipient of numerous honorary' degrees and professional awards. The Kolmer Test and Kolmcr-
Reiter antigen honor his research contributions.
Dr. Kolmer received his M.D. degree at the University of Pennsylvania in 1908 and a Doctor of Public Health degree six years later. He was a founder of the Institute of Public Health and Preventive Medicine of Temple University in 1921. Serving as Professor of Bacteriology' at Penn's Graduate School of Medicine before joining the Temple University Medical School faculty in 1932, he achieved emeritus rank at Temple in 1957, but continued working at the Institute and Medical School until his death on December 11, 1962.
His lifetime of 76 years saw many advances in chemotherapy, serodiagnosis and immunology — special fields to which he contributed greatly. His work abroad with Bordet, Calmette, Ehrlich and Hata, his care of President Coolidge’s son during a fatal illness, his pioneer book on penicillin therapy which brought him the friendship of Sir Alexander Fleming — these facets of a distinguished career will long be remembered by his friends and pupils.
23A Spectrum of Alumni Activity
Every medical school graduate goes on to contribute in a unique way to his society and profession. We all know, for example, of the numerous alumni who have contributed with their enthusiasm and talents to the maintenance of Temple’s fine medical reputation. What is not as well known, however, are the contributions that have been and are being made to medicine by those who leave the Philadelphia area.
Some of our graduates fill administrative posts. Dr. Manson Meads '43 was this year appointed Dean of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I)r. Meads entered Temple from the University of California, where he had previously received an A.B. degree. Prior to earlier research work in bacteriology at Bowman Gray, he had served as a research fellow at the Thorndike Memorial Laboratory and was an assistant in medicine at the Harvard Medical School. Dr. Daniel H. Bee ’37 is the current president of the Pennsylvania State Medical Society. Dr. C. Paul Hodgkinson ’36. chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Henry Ford Hospital since 1933, is now serving as the tenth president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Among the members of Temple’s second graduating class in medicine (1903) was Dr. Frederick H. Dammasch, who has served since 1933 as a member of the Hall of Representatives of the Oregon Legislative Assembly. His dedication over the years to aiding the mentally ill through legislative action was recently climaxed by the construction of a new 1300 bed state hospital named in his honor. Dr. Homer L. Reighard ’48 is Chief. Medical Standards Division, Federal Aviation Agency, Washington, D.C.; his main concern is with flight safety in civilian airlines. The first woman president of the Pennsylvania Academy of General Practice, presently holder of that office is Dr. Harriet Nl. Harry, '36, of University Park. Pa.
Two graduates are prominent in the worlds of fine art and journalism. Dr. Emil L. Seletz ’32. California neurosurgeon by vocation and sculptor by avocation, was featured on the cover of The Scientific Monthly, April 1956, for his bronze bust of Albert Einstein. This bust is on display in the rotunda of the Jewish Community Building in Los Angeles, and a copy graces the entrance to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Rex Morgan, M.I) , the cartoon-doctor who enters more households each week than any other doctor in the United States, is a creation of Dr. Nicholas P. I Tallis ’38. He is perhaps better known to most as Dal Curtis, a pen name for this well-qualified script-writer. A practicing psychiatrist, Dr. Dallis received his specialty training at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He uses his cartoon strip chiefly to wage war on medical quackery and to erase public ignorance of some common diseases.
Many alumni have found satisfaction in contributing to the health of those abroad through medical missionary work. Some of those who have, or are, serving in India and Africa include: Dr. Clara C. Leach 15, Dr. Margaret R. Gibbons ’25. Dr. Merle W. Eshleman ’38, Dr. Mary Kirby Bern,' '42, Dr. Earl W. Reber '45. Dr. John H. F.dling ’48, Dr. Charles W. Dietrich ’53, Dr. John W. Saether ’54. and Dr. Joseph H. Bngle ’56. Dr. Kenneth V. Dodgson 53, who this year returned to Temple to finish a surgical residency, recently finished a five year tour of duty at the Jorhat Christian Hospital in Assam, India. While in this tea-garden area of India, Dr. Dodgson. who is an ordained minister, was spiritual and medical director of a 250 bed general hospital, 53 bed tuberculosis sanitorium. 200 patient leprosarium, and a nursing school. After his specialty certification in surgery, he plans to return to Jorhat to continue this important missionary work.
These alumni are just a few of the Temple medical alumni who have gone out to serve many parts of the world since the first medical class graduated sixty years ago.
24History of the Class of 1963
By . . . Robert E. Decker with Daniel J. Colombi
FOUR YEARS IN RETROSPECT: THE CLASS OF 1963
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”
William Shakespeare As You Like It.
THE FIRST YEAR
The Class of '63 began to play its part on the first Tuesday following Labor Day in 1959. The Philadelphia weather was typically hot and humid as one hundred and thirty-six tanned and rested would-be physicians began their medical school careers. Eagerness and apprehension were the predominant moods.
We were officially greeted by Dean Bucher, who had recently succeeded the renowned Dean Parkinson. His introductory presentation was straight-forward, stressing the problems we would collectively face in the immediate future as we made the transition from undergraduate to professional education. The Dean concluded by stating that “. . . we expect each of you to obtain your degree” But two fellows in the class didn't even reach the second week! Following this brief orientation, we were shown to our new “homes away from home." namely the Anatomy Lecture Room and Labs. Wo were greeted once again, this time by Dr. John Franklin Huhjtrr, who personified every freshman’s concept of a Department Head. That this gentleman had been nicknamed “Daddy Huber” by earlier Freshman classes was no coincidence. He and his staff did much to ease the pain of early professional training, and each student was grateful for this approach f— particularly in those first few bewildering weeks. That staff included: M Noble Bates, a Ph.D. specializing in the filibuster type lecture liberally sprinkled with liberal slides, slides, and more slides; J. Robert Troyer another Ph.D. who, in addition to being an excellent teacher, could also draw with both hands simultaneously: John D. Hartman, M.D., who lectured infrequently but extremely well; and Richard H. (“Tricky Dickie') Webber PhD., a neuroanatomist whose, “fingers are wonderful tools.” and “teenie-weenie wagon,” became familiar slogans.
Mastering the vocabulary of Anatomy and the structural concepts which are the basis for future medical knowledge is a detailed and difficult process. For many of us the long lectures became tedious and tiring as the novelty of graduate school, complete with white jacket, began to wane. And then there was the Cadaver. No medical student forgets the day of his introduction to that expressionless, devilishly intricate morphologic unit. Nor does he forget the noxious, omnipresent. all-too-unique odor which is the distinctive characteristic of the first semester freshman. Formalin-stung eye , greasy book and lab notes, Pro-tek, etc., all these are not forgotten. But although the factual details of Anatomy became obscure, the fundamental concepts, nevertheless, became slowly established in our minds. Dissecting the cadaver was a privilege which many of us accepted grudgingly, particularly when one had to identify the nerves and vessels in the ischio-rcctal fossa
or some other equally inaccessible area.
Anatomy lectures, particularly the afternoon variety, had siesta-time built in. The Noble lectures, as some of us were wont to call them, were especially hypnotic. When the snoring got too loud, the Noble lecturer would counter with a few “specials" to warm the cockles of your heart. When the dreaded "head and neck” regional exam was over, a large segment of the class relaxed, despite the warnings of Dr Huber (in pantomime yet). After the final exam, we spent our last academically-free Christmas vacation.
Neuroanatomy, which hegan in January, was interesting and challenging, despite the presence of the aforementioned "Tricky Dickie." Our introduction to clinical correlation conferences with Drs. Murtagh and Gilpin made mastering the detail appreciably more palatable. In addition. Dr Rogers' course in medical history helped relieve the monotony of anatomical dissection. For the first time, we were exposed to many of the great men who have made the medical discoveries which we now take for granted. Dr. Rogers smoothly described the medically significant moments in their lives.
Dr. Huber had said on the day of each examination that. “. . . you will never know the Anatomy of this region of the body as well as you do today. ' This was the painful and frustrating truth.
Psychiatry lertures were also presented in that first semester Prof. O. Spurgeon English's explanation of psycho-sexual development was a classic series. He succeeded in frightening us by claiming that at no future time would we be happier than we were currently. This statement was made in a disturbingly humid lecture hall, shortly after a Noble fillibustrr The results were devastating. We still aren't sure if he was right or not. Nevertheless, we became familiar with some of the terminology of the specialty, and became amateur analysts of cur families and our peers, most of whom evidenced a number of the symptoms which Dr. English had described. Generally, it was a good introduction to a complex field
The second semester was one of the most difficult for many of us The relaxed “transitional" attitude characteristic of anatomy had vanished. We were faced with the proposition of mastering the fundamentals of two vast subjects . . . and nobody even pretended to help to make this task any easier. Physiological Chemistry was presented with minimal clinical correlation, presumably because of lack of time. Dr. Robert H. Hamilton is above all else a responsible, dedicated teacher who wants to give each student the best possible instruction. So we memorized countless structural formulas. What this contributed to our fund of permanent knowledge is somewhat controversial However it was not uncommon to see one of the senior students doodling the projected formula of sucrose in a rare spare moment. The lab periods also provided a wealth of memorable experiences, including the 24 hour urine collection (“popularly” referred to as the “pee-pool") and the use of the Van Slyke apparatus (the success of which is rivalled in recent years only by the Edsel). Labs also provided a certain degree of clinical correlation. Those lucky students on low-protein diets learned much about thr early symptoms and signs of kwashiorkor.
25which they began to develop if they were conscientious enough in adhering to their diets. The didactic presentations of Drs. Hamilton, Boutwell, Baldridge, Gilley and Robinson were good as a rule, with one or two notable exceptions, such as the acid-base series which was absolutely incoherent. The bimonthly examination provided ample stimulation for study. Here, as in other departments, we soon learned to concentrate on the finer points as a matter of necessity. The ultimate question’s "did this course give me my money’s worth?”; "did this course help make me a better physician?,’’ must be answered on an individual basis.
The Physiology course was traumatic in varying degrees for the entire class. Although not completely unique, our experience with this Department has to rank as a Temple Medical classic. Consider, if you will, that fateful Saturday prior to Easter vacation when an unannounced quiz (on some unannounced material) descended like a bolt from the blue upon the handful of students dutifully attendant. Consider also those high-tensioned laboratory periods wherein the furies of hell could be unleashed at any given moment. Consider further the incident of the "oriental skirt” and its repercussions for one member of the class — a sad Day. Dr. Morton J. (Oppie) Oppenheimer and the Class of '63 reenacted the Battle of the Budge twice a week for most of the semester. If in one lab-period the student learned that frog muscle had inherent contractility and could also escape without a major injury, he considered himself a fortunate man The lab-war dwindled to a guerilla action with considerable hand-to-hand combat between individual students and M.J.O. as the semester drew to a close The lectures by Drs. Wiedeman, Ohlcr, Waldron, Lynch and Evans were generally interesting and informative. Dr. Ascanio’s lectures were received well by the Spanish-speaking members of the class . . . the rest of us didn’t know what the hell he was talking about! The suggested text book had many practical uses, none of which were concerned with physiology The laboratory manual and reports were classic examples of the honor system in reverse. Paradoxically, M.J.O gave a relatively simple but comprehensive final which enabled the majority of us to pass the course. Anyone who thought that this was an indication of our grasp of the subject was brought to his senses one year later when our proud group stormed to the bottom of the national averages in the boards, j And there were still three years to go!
THE SECOND YEAR
In September of ’60 our veteran group returned to resume classes. The first semester courses were Pathology and Microbiology. Nothing before or since has matched this combination.
The Pathology course was, unquestionably, the best organized and best taught basic science We were presented with a vast amount of well-integrated material, with a minimum of repetition, and with a decidedly clinical approach. Dr. Ernest ("the Chief”) Aegerter is one of the most interesting and stylish lecturers in the curriculum. The remainder of the lecturers including Drs. Peale, Lautsch, Tasoni, Levy Watts, Arey, Smith et al. invariably presented their subjects well. Post-mortem exams, gross and microscopic sessions and
the conference sessions reinforced the didactic presentation, helping to solidify the fundamentals in our minds. But the course was at all times grinding. We think that this is the feature that is least likely to be forgotten. Announcement that the midterm was cancelled was met with all the fervor of V-J day. (The chief whipped pre-exam tension to an all-time high when he made his famous “Ten Most Important Days of Your Life” speech just prior to the final.) The dreaded "chief’s page” was an ever-constant threat even to the best-prepared students. Dr. Lautsch’s “beat the clock” exams were well calculated to precipitate any latent neuroses. The monthly “pass-the-slide" session "helped” one keep abreast of the seemingly unending slide-study assignments. The Walter to Clarence to Irving combination had to be one of the most consistently funny conferences of the 2nd year. The pre-exam cramming nights in the Gross and Microscopy labs were among the most memorable in the four years. And in February of ’61, when he heard the rhythmic click of Hilda’s spiked heels slowly fading down the 5th floor corridor for the last time, we knew that we had had the course.
A demanding Microbiology course shared Pathology's spotlight with a moderate degree of success. The lecturers produced a variable level of consciousness ranging from the keen attention shown the Klein series to the soporific effect of the Shock (man) treatments. Here again we spent long hours in the lab (or else!), and although most of the work was basic and important, its repetitiveness tended to dull our interest. The frequent exams once again kept us from getting too dulled. The course ended with Mr. Lamberti’s wormy subject as Dr. Eiscnbcrg brought up the rear.
That first semester ended none too soon for most of us. It had been a rough several months, and virtually everyone needed a breather at that period.
Second semester of sophomore year was relatively low-pressured with one major science, Pharmacology, and several introductory courses including Physical Diagnosis, Hematology, Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Epidemiology, Biometrics,’ etc. Pharmacology was a well presented and well received course. Drs. Sevy, Bello, Papacostas, Rusy, Adler, et al. lectured concisely with emphasis on fact and the functional aspects of the science. Clinical correlation conferences with Dr. Bello were particularly good. Lab sessions were often similar to those in Physiology as regards the type of experiments. But the “armed-neutrality" atmosphere of the freshman lab was of course, no longer present for the Department of Pharmacology seemed genuinely interested in our learning the fundamentals. Mr. Carl Mayo provided the comic relief in an otherwise sober subject. We dutifully practiced writing prescriptions replete with “mfts," “dis. tal. doses,’’ etc., and got gold stars for our efforts. In the lab sessions (nicknamed the Mayo Clinics) we concocted foulsmelling hand creams and evil-tasting cough syrups which most of us sent to our mothers-in-law, and other good friends — hoping they’d try them. The nomenclature of the course was endless: we learned about twenty chemical and pharmacologic names for each class of drugs. By the end of the semester, we all knew the U.S.P. and trade names for
26Brand X we felt we were making headway in our assault on the treatment of a pill-conscious society.
Physical Diagnosis provided our first group exposure to live patients. Dr. George Mark did much of the lecturing and in retrospect he did a creditable job under the circumstances. But if it be true that bed-side instruction is the backbone of a physical diagnosis course, then our course had a very weak spine.
The Hematology course was revamped that year as Dr. H. James Day took over the Chair. He strengthened the course, generally, added clinical correlation conferences, and gave excellent exams. The laboratory work was well presented and well directed with a technician for every student group. That first venipuncture was a ghastly experience for many of us. Some of those technicians were even more ghastly.
The surgical presentations of Drs. Lauby and Dc Laurcntis were generally good. The fluid balance lectures were also given at that time and most of us drowned. Dr. John Kline read us a lecture once — he read very well. We were all impressed by his confidence!
Pediatrics, with its emphasis on growth and development, was a classic of conflicting data. Even now many of us are not sure how many blocks a seventeen-month old white Protestant boy from Connecticut should be able to build or when he should stick a pea in the ketchup bottle or perform some other such feat and God forbid hr should only say 6 words instead of 7 at the prescribed age! The exam answers were more controversial than the Chapman Report — finally, we decided to vote on the correct answer.
The Department of Internal Medicine began its lecture series with a truly inspiring introduction by Dr. Durant. His obvious sincerity regarding the ideal physician's disdain for monetary compensation provoked some of the more impulsive and impressionable students to bum their money, rend their garments, and rush out seeking work as missionaries among the lepers. After Dr. Shuman had lectured for several weeks on diabetes mellitus, we exhausted souls were all convinced that it was a chronic disease. In any event, we learned that one coconut exchange equals two pizza exchanges and the pH of insulin, and that all you needed to manage a patient's diet was a slide rule and an extensive background in Calculus. Dr. Cohen told us . . not to kill the poor bastards" in his sweet, charitable, homey way. Dr. Channick’s Endocrine lectures were excellent, albeit hurried, excursions into the realm of hormones.
Dr. Baum’s lectures and his hit record album, “The Nuts and I," were enlightening and entertaining. Spencer Free taught us long division and yelled a lot. Neil Chilton, the world’s greatest living dentist, spent much of his time trying to prove this to us. And the whole atmosphere of the semester was relaxed until final exams and the Board exams were upon us. But merely observing Dr. Cilley dutifully checking our photos against our faces prior to and during the Boards was worth the price of admission.
On June 22nd a tired group of students began their last full summer vacation. We had reached the half-way mark, but our casualties had been great. The class photo on the 6th floor of the medical school became riddled with empty
spaces. We began to understand what the Dean meant when he said, "If you ever get into any difficulty. I’d like to help you out."
As Freshmen, most of us were still unattached and carefree; we knew very little of dishes, diapers, and such. With each succeeding June, however, an ever larger segment of the class became married, and offspring became increasingly more common. By senior year more than 75% of the class was married, and the additional financial burden provoked many of the class to seek night and weekend work as professional "pink and blucrs" in some of the outlying hospitals — against the wishes of the Dean.
The professional fraternities were the social hub for most of us, particularly those who were not long-time residents of Philadelphia On many a Saturday night our tired eyes and minds were given refuge from the ravages of study. Although the parties never quite reached the proportions recently depicted in a Hollywood version of interns’ parties, they were rather lively at times. The occasional affairs at Alden Park Manor, usually occurring on post-exam evenings, were an excellent way to relax. Some of the participants became so relaxed that they got paralyzed — but everybody understood.
There was intra-university basketball, football games during the Junior year and, later, rugby. The latter team is emerging as a continuing tradition at Temple — the Class of ’63 is largely responsible for its birth, early growth, and recent successes.
THE THIRD YEAR
Junior year provided our first continuing experience with patients, and armed with new black bag and shiny instruments (which we had yet to learn to use) we set out to cure the world. The class was divided into thirds with some students going to Episcopal, some to the P.G.H. — Veterans Hospital complex, and the remainder going to the F.instein Medical Center. Morning and early afternoons were spent at these respective places, and in mid-afternoon there was the daily return to Mecca for two hours of lectures. The situation varied from hospital to hospital and from service to sen-ice, but oftentimes it resolved into a case of ‘‘physician teach thyself!" Most of the residents accorded us the same affection they would have if we were carriers of Bubonic Plague. The patients barely tolerated our endless questioning, and the nurses were even less civil. In any event, our bloodletting skills improved, and some of us did gain a degree of clinical acumen.
The consensus of opinion was that the Episcopal Medical and Surgical Services were superior to the others. Obstetrics at Temple outstripped the new PGH program, but the latter began to improve as the year progressed. The combined Neurology-TB service at PGH has fine staff coverage in the persons of Drs. Gilpin, Vazuka and Cohen. These were excellent exercises in physical diagnosis and comprehensive medicine.
The precious 2 hours of afternoon lectures were generally excellent. The combined medical and surgical coverage in the first half of the year often had a vaudeville-like atmosphere
27with each performer doing his specialty number and then bowing to the next speaker. Attendance, particularly on Saturdays, was variable. One can hardly forget that Saturday morning when Dr. Moore called the roll for 37 minutes and then soberly lectured for the remaining 8 minutes of the session. There were several outstanding lecturers, too numerous to mention. Dr. Mine hart's surgical anatomy course was quite practical, and oftentimes pretty funny as was the instruction by the Orthopedic Department where I Toward Steel consistently amazed us with his ability to provoke a yak at 8:02 on a rainy Saturday morning. Robert McGregor provided us with a centimeter by centimeter statistical analysis of diseases of the colo-rectum. The Pediatric Psychiatry series produced some of the greatest mass student migrations (out the back door of Erny Amphitheater) in recent history. The lecturer in Psychosomatic Medicine was doing nicely until he began to develop symptoms himself! Dr. Eiscnbcrg gave us 30 or 40 reasons for scratching our behinds and Dr. Meyer reported his original research on the nose-picking habits of motorists at traffic intersections, f r
Tht third year was hectic, but less demanding academically. We did learn to use our instruments with some degree of facility, developed a history and physical technic, became a little more polished in patient management, and learned how to follow a woman through a normal labor and delivery. Less than two weeks after the last junior final exam we became SSs.
THE FOURTH YEAR
This is the most controversial year in the curriculum among the students, house staff and administrative department. Some of the departments, e.g. Obstetrics, Anesthesia, and Neurosurgery, have adapted beautifully to the situation, and the level of clinical and practical education here is superior to most other medical schools. In many other areas however, improvements have to be made if the clinical clerkship is to survive as a legitimate teaching aid.
Bedecked in new white trousers, we soon became accustomed to being called “Doctor” and to be trusted with a small degree of responsibility. We were introduced to night duty, that magical time filled with troubled sleep and jangling telephones “. . . Dr. Clyde, this is Miss Fink on 6 PP. Mrs. Ninny has a temperature elevation of 99.2 and can't sleep. Would you rush over here as soon as possible . , etc. ad nauseam.
Sundays on the busy private services were dreaded as “Pink and Blues” piled up with amazing rapidity. Follow-up oftentimes was impossible. Proponents of the current program insist that the increased patient contact produces a more skilled, responsible physician. This seems basically sound. Twelve months of such contact could provide an enviable educational experience if there were more education in proportion to experience.
In the Department of Medicine an innovation in the program in the person of nine straight medical interns was added. This was supposed to decrease the workload on the senior and add to our time for outside reading, follow-ups, etc. The consensus among the seniors is that it did neither very well, and, in fact, may have subtracted from the teach-
ing experience on the private service oi previous years.
Medical Clinic was received with mixed response by most of us. It became absolutely imperative to know the most intimate details of the life of a 78 year old woman with a sore right shoulder. By the end of the first interview the student should have developed an insight into his patient's sex life, occupation, national origin, sex life, political affiliation, prejudices, sox life, dreams, race, religious preference, sex life, dietary and drinking habits, sex life, hobbies, and sex life. Some 78 year old women don't have much of a sex life, but they can be seductive as hell ... or so we were told. After several weeks of such inquiry by certain members of the staff, one started to wonder about their sex lives, and their obvious concern with everyone else’s.
Some of the histories looked like chapters from “Tropic of Cancer" or "Lady Chatterly’s Lover." But one admittedly does gain a degree of finesse in handling psychophysiologic complaints and managing the whole patient. We could probably do without the home visiting, however, especially on a dark, rainy night at 16th and Diamond Streets.
In-patient medicine, particularly on the wards, was educational. The conferences and quiz sessions were helpful: the bedside leaching, although not abundant, was always of good quality. The private side, on the other hand, was usually a case of pink-and-bluc and so long Charlie!
Obstetrics and Gynecology was generally an excellent educational experience for a fourth year medical student. Few programs in other medical schools are as complete as this one. The nature of this specialty, particularly obstetrics, is such that it lends itself nicely to bed-side teaching. This fact, coupled with a sincere effort by an excellent staff to make this a teaching service, have achieved this happy result. This service is the strongest argument for the advocates of the fourth year clerkship. This service has demonstrated that the system does work if it is planned and supervised by individuals who arc ever mindful that this is a medical school as well as a hospital.
Working fourteen or more consecutive hours for ten consecutive days in the D.R. at night is tolerable because one is assured that the knowledge and experience gained will be at least commensurate with the energy expended. The A.D. duty of ward Gyne provided an excellent opportunity to participate actively in the differential diagnosis of the acute abdomen in female patients.
It is not an accident that our senior class has consistently done so well in this specialty when compared with other medical schools in the National Boards. We think that this reflects, in part, the attitude of the students' responding to an adequate stimulus. We should like to thank the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for having helped educate us, and for providing us with one of the highlights of our medical careers.
By way of contrast, most of seniors were pre-eminently dissatisfied with their exposure to Pediatrics as it is currently being administered at St. Christopher’s Hospital. This is a paradoxical situation which does not lend itself to explanation easily. The staff is generally of the highest caliber; the pathology is varied and abundant; the Outpatient Dc-
28partment is vast in scope; the conference hours devoted to students are many. But the irrefutable fact remains that the seniors did not enjoy this service. Perhaps one does not have to enjoy a service in order to absorb the fundamentals of that specialty. Nevertheless, one wonders why this service should be so criticized by the majority of students. YVe do not think that there is a single answer. Part of it must lie in the senior’s feelings of inadequacy when dealing with the very young. Part of it must lie in the sudden, inevitable reduction in statu.' which is the senior students’ 'it upon arrival at St. Chris The veneer of respect, albeit thin at time, shown us at Temple is totally absent at St. Chris. And finally, part of the answer must lie in the physical plan of this hospital with its inadequate. eating and studying facilities, its crowded, often suffocating, working conditions, plus its boorish, overbearing, graduate nursing staff and non-professional personnel. The erection of new buildings is obviously not the whole answer.
No one denies that Dr. Garfunkle’s Outpatient Department is an excellent teaching experience — one for which we are grateful. His department is probably better, as far as the students arc involved, in many respects than most outpatient departments at Temple. But the In-patient experience (or lack of it!) leaves the student so annoyed and unfulfilled that the very worthwhile parts of the service are suppressed in a deluge of generalized dissatisfaction.
There is an old gag about Philadeuphia to the effect that the nicest thing about it is that it's only a hundred miles from New York. Many seniors would be wont to paraphrase this that the nicest thing about the St. Christopher’s service is that it only lasts two months. When one considers the truly excellent quality of the medical staff, and the vast quantity of clinical material available, this becomes one of the saddest commentaries of our fourth year.
It is difficult to evaluate the students’ relationship with tht Surgical Department. Like the little girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead, Surgery could be very, very good, but when it was bad, it was horrid. Holding retractors for several hours while the surgeon performs his feats of dexterity somehow held little appeal for the great majority of students. But the Department of Anesthesia, on the other hand, provided an excellently planned and supervised teaching program. YVard surgery was generally enjoyed by most, but the residents oftentimes did not share the staff man’s readiness to teach. Indeed, rounds on Babcock Ward with certain of the residents were nicknamed the "hand-mc rounds," i.c., hand me the alcohol, hand me a 4 x 4, hand me the scissors, etc., ad nauseam. Not all the residents were so grossly disoriented as regards teaching; some, in fact, made an honest effort to share their knowledge. YVe appreciate, and will remember, these efforts. YVe will also remember the first type of resident, but for different reasons. The ward conferences with the staff were illuminating; even fluid and electrolyte balance seemed more nearly intelligible. Private surgery varied with the staff man and resident to whom you were assigned (something like the knight, squire, page system popular in Medieval times). The surgeons speak fundamentally with their hands. Listening to a pair of hands can be difficult at best.
The surgical specialties were generally enjoyed by the
students. Dr. Scott s neurosurgical department deserves special recognition for having organized its teaching program so well.
YVe unanimously thank the Department of Radiology for helping us so graciously and professionally. Our questions never went unanswered and there was usually someone of the staff present, willing, and able to interpret the films for
The weeks spent in the Accident YVard were also invaluable. Even the chronic malcontents in the class felt as though this exciting experience was more than well worth the effort expended. The emergency room is well supervised at ail times, and one rapidly develops a sense of proper emergency treatment. We honestly wish the experience could have lasted much longer ... it shone brightly in a sometimes drab Surgical service.
YVe won’t forget the many hours spent in the Brown Building, those beautifully laundered and form-fitting green p-j-’s, reaching for a ringing phone at 5 a.m. from an upper bunk and hoping you wouldn’t split your skull on the cold floor several yards below, starting those damned IVs, inserting Foleys, pulling out vagina] packs, etc., ad infinitum.
The four years have ended, too quickly it now seems. Each graduate has to evaluate the results for himself. Each must certainly feel that more could have been accomplished. The overwhelming expansion of medical knowledge in recent years has made it impossible for any student to learn or the faculty attempt to teach much more than a fraction of the pertinent information. It is simply not possible to amass all these facts; the teaching pattern must be one which emphasizes life-long education by the development of study habits which will persist. YVe think that Temple has made a sincere effort to transmit to each of its graduates a concept of the interest and pleasure that is the reward of that person who would care for the ills of his fellow man. Temple has stressed observation, interpretation, and correlation in an attempt to produce in these four short years a physician with the potential to be both a scientist and a sympathetic listener, a physician ever mindful of the complex person who is his patient. Temple has tried to show us that it is important that we remain students of medicine for the rest of our professional lives. Each new graduate must determine for himself whether that goal shall be reached. And herein lies the ultimate criterion for determining the success of medical education . . . was the student properly motivated and stimulated by his teachers to sustain his interest in medicine’s ever widening frontiers? Temple’s medical faculty has honestly tried to do this; the student ultimately accepts or rejects the imitation to keep learning. The Class of 1963 gratefully accepts Temple’s invitation. Thank you.

“This is Body; that’s B-O-D-Y. It is Human Body; that’s H-U-M . .
RAYMOND C. TRUEX, M.S., Ph.D.
"Friends, we are gathered here today . .
In furthering the understanding of the human body, the anatomist has, over the the years, interested himself in progressively smaller building-blocks of the body. Beginning with the early use of the microscope to crudely study cells in the seventeenth century, the progression has now reached the “visualization" of the larger protein molecules by means of the electron microscope.
The electron microscope is but one of the many instruments and technics used by the modern anatomist to accomplish his purposes. Other types of microscopic technics included are those employing phase, interference, ultraviolet light and polarization which have permitted the detailed observations of living cells at high mangifi cat ions with results such as the observation of the movement of mitochondria within the cytoplasm and individual chromosomes in the dividing cell. Further study of living tissue, even within organs, has been accomplished with the quartz-rod-transillumination technic. Technics of tissue and organ culture allow the study of cell and organ properties and functions under more carefully controlled conditions than within the body. Micromanipulatiorr makes it possible to w'ork on individual living cells and, for example, remove the nucleus from a cell.
Histochemical studies can localize sites of enzyme activity within individual cells or within components of the cell. Fluorescence of materials selectively taken up following injection and radioautographic. localization of radioactive materials help to pinpoint specific sites of a variety of processes and of chemical constituents of cells.
Many specialized technics for the study of the nervous system, including electronic recording, are employed by the anatomist, as are gross anatomical techniques such as corrosion-injection procedures and radiographic studies including cine-fluorography.
No one of the above technics can be picked out as the one which may bring about a major break-through. It can be expected that each of these technics, in logical combination with others, will continue to advance our understanding of the human body.

Exciting developments now under way will have early direct effects on medicine. These include work on the genetic code and on other chemical problems concerning direction by genes of the activities of the cell and of the whole organism. In genetic diseases not only are there morphological consequences of changed genetic patterns, hut more specifically, there arc changes in certain enzyme systems and sequences throughout the body.
Cellular control mechanisms arc directed by the gene through polynucleotide intermediates. Viruses inject their own polynucleotides into a cell which they have infected. The injected material forces the cell mechanisms, like slaves, to manufacture additional virus chromatin. These studies relate directly to virus diseases, and are likewise leading into some of the fields of cancer.
A knowledge of normal intermediary metabolic sequences in the cell, be it animal, plant, or mico-
organismal, helps 11s to understand deviations from the normal that occur in some disease states. These changes may be occasioned by an inherited genetic pattern which cannot be corrected in the individual, and which may in the past always have been fatal. Knowledge of the exact biochemical changes may enable us to correct the defect or to produce conditions with less dangerous consequences. Thus, although the heredity of the individual cannot be changed, we may be able to ameliorate his inherited disease.
Fundamental biochemistry will be taught as in the past. It may be necessary to streamline our presentation of this material in order to have additional time for considering the newer developments. It would not he surprising to see clinical departments making biochemical presentations even more frequently in the future than in the past.

Despite the political connotations of the theme of the 1963 SKULL, it ran safely be pointed out that there art-three important new areas of progress in Physiology. The first of these lias been the electron microscope which has enabled us, with its increased resolving power, to visualize the structures within cells. The true meaning of mitochondria, Golgi apparatus, and ribosomes has been elicited. Structure and function have been correlated on a cellular level.
Secondly, physiologists are now able to work with single cells in many fields. Ling and Gerard developed an intracellular microelectrode in 1949. The external diameter of these electrode tips is about 0.2 micron. These are filled with concentrated potassium solution and inserted through cell membranes into the sarcoplasm, whereupon they can be used to measure the potential difference between the outside and inside of resting and active cells.
Finally, mathematical correlates of physiological functions have been extensively applied. Many examples of this could be cited but a single example will suffice. Rush-iner lias pointed out that the best measure of ‘'increased cardiac contractility” is the rate of change of pressure of the ventricle under study. This rate of change of pressure is the first derivative of the ventricular pressure pulse. This derivative we measure regularly to evaluate function.
I predict that in the future physiology will be presented to a much larger degree as the function of individual cells related to their intimate internal structure, the whole presentation having a strong mathematical bias.

"I'm going to miss those BELA LUGOSI movies.In the last decade three significant new developments in biologic science have become available to the pathologist and have given him a greatly expanded outlook and enlarged fields of activity which will lead to real advances in diagnostic investigative pathology.
The first is the development of exfoliative cytology as an aid in the diagnosis of malignant neoplasia. The work of Papanicolaou showed that cells are continually shed from both internal and external body-surfaces and that these cells retain their recognizable structural characteristics and can be identified as benign or malignant. The use of cytologic diagnosis promises almost complete control of cervical cancer and offers at least some hope for the otherwise dim outlook for early diagnosis of lung and gastrointestinal cancers.
The second is the development of the field of histochemistry which offers methods of studying chemical substances and metabolic activities at the microscopic level permitting a real correlation of structure and function.
The third is the development of the electron microscope and of the techniques of specimen preparation to the point where this marvellous optical device can readily be used to bring the study of cells to the molecular level. Viruses, internal cell structures, even macromolecules can even now be visualized in the electron microscope. Undoubtedly future refinements of instrumentation and techniques will permit even better approaches to the study of the fundamental nature of life processes. The knowledge from the expanding fields of biochemistry ‘and biology are even now forming the basis for the “New Frontier” known as Molecular Biology.

“I wonder if anyone has read this book besides Rivers and Me.”
Immunology was at one time only a branch of medical microbiology; now it is the main trunk of growth. In recent years, for example, intense interest has developed in the contrasting phenomena of immunologic unresponsiveness and autoimmune reactions. Now further stimulus has come from the new knowledge that the thymus gland is decisive in initiating production of the host’s immunologically competent cells. It is becoming increasingly evident that these cells may respond collectively to a single antigenic stimulus with the production not only of a variety of humoral antibody molecules with different sizes, affinities and potential biologic effects, but also of cell-bound antibody of delayed reaction hypersensitivity.
However, the fundamental immunologic question of the immediate future is immunochemical in nature: What is the chemical basis of specificity in antigen and antibody? Although we know that very minor alteration of reactive groups of a molecule is immunologically detectable, the ultimate answers to such problems as the allergic diseases, autoimmune reactions, tissue transplantation, and cancer immunology can come only from a better understanding of the relationship between the structure of molecules and their immunologic reactivity.
Interest in viruses continues to increase. Much effort is going into the poorly understood mechanism of recovery from viral diseases. The same can be said of chemotherapy where the bottleneck is the need for better understanding of the biochemistry of viral parasitism. The liveliest interest in virology, however, sterns from the certainty that viruses play a dominant role in certain types of animal and plant neoplasms, and the increasingly recognized probability that they are also involved in human cancer. There is good reason to hope for real advances here.
Viruses arc also favorite research tools in microbial genetics, a relatively new discipline. Involved in
the interplay between viral DNA (or RNA) and the cell genome is the subject of latent viruses, possibly a key to cancer virology. But not all microbial genetics is viral; researchers have uncovered several mechanisms for the transfer of genetic information from one bacterial cell to another. The major steps in protein synthesis have now been outlined, and going hand in hand with it is a major effort to “break the genetic code" of microorganisms. The future possibilities for medicine of these discoveries, when they come, cannot be fully comprehended. For, like several previous discoveries in microbial biochemistry and genetics, it is likely that the mechanics found there are also operative in higher biologic systems, including those of man.
Among the other microbiologic areas which should be singled out as centers of unusual activity is that relating to the mechanisms of pathogenicity. Toxigenic conversion is, for example, not confined to the diphtheria bacillus; indeed this virus-induced phenomenon may represent a general biologic pattern. Much interest also has developed in the varied and very-significant biologic effects of lipopolysaccharide endotoxins. Here is a gcxxl example of the widespread effort in microbiologic research to relate chemical structure to biologic function. For example, studies now being carried out in this department offer much promise for the future since they indicate successful separation of the toxic component from the antigenic fraction.
So much new knowledge, developing at an ever increasing tempo, has a profound impact upon the opinions, interests and activities of our staff members. Consequently the content of student instruction changes each year so as to provide the student with a sounder basis for the evaluation and applii tion of both existing knowledge and new concepts .1 the future.Microbiology

Advances in pharmacology have been rapid and significant in recent years. Most of the potent drugs in wide usage today were not in existence twenty-five years ago. The pharmacology of older drugs has also been significantly advanced by recent studies; the pharmacodynamics of cardiac glycosides, belladonna alkaloids, opiates and other highly important drugs is much better understood. The applications of pharmacology are no longer important only to medicine but also to agriculture and the other biological sciences. Increasing numbers of scientists are attracted not only to applied pharmacology but to pharmacology as a basic scientific discipline.
As a result of its scientific growth, pharmacology is undergoing a process of specialization as exemplified by the emergence of the sub-specialties of Biochemor-phology, Biochemical Pharmacology. Cellular Pharmacology, Pharmacogenetics, Behavioral Pharmacology, and Clinical Pharmacology in addition to the older and more conventional divisions such as General Pharmacology. Pharmocodynamics, Chemotherapy and Toxicology.
What constitutes the most important advances in very recent years and the “frontiers” of pharmacology is difficult to say, especially in the face of a voluminous current literature and evidence for continuing rapid progress on all fronts. The practical impact of recent developments with respect to psychopharmacology, diuretic drugs, antihypertensive drugs, steroid drugs, and chemotherapy are not difficult to appreciate. However. it is likely that recent progress in more fundamental problems such as the pharmacology of biogenic amines, drug-enzyme interactions, drug distribution and metabolism, drug antagonisms, drug receptor theory, neuropharmacology, and the actions of drugs on sub-cellular structures will have more far-reaching and long lasting importance.
In the future some aspects of pharmacology will become simpler as they become less vague, but many more aspects will become more complicated as general terms such as “stimulate” and “depress" are pushed aside by detailed analytical description. The future medical student will find pharmacology more exacting and demanding but he will find also that it will make him more effective as a physician.

185New frontiers of psychiatry seem to lie in psychotherapy and drug research. Briefly, this means that in my opinion Insulin Shock Therapy and Electro Shock Therapy are no longer the treatments that produce best results. Initially, many psychiatrists tried to prove their worth because they seemed to be linked to some biological or chemical disorder. But, they have had their day and are no longer considered too important.
Shock therapy never has appealed to me. This is partly due to the fact that my own training was psychotherapeutic. While some of its concepts were difficult, it was always easier for me to orient myself to the idea that a human contribution rather than a coma or a convulsion might cure erroneous conceptions or hallucinations.
I believe we will get somewhere when people in every walk of life can ask, “What is wrong with the brain function of our sick family member?’' Only then will the frontier be extended. Drugs may help but they won’t change a Republican into a Democrat or vice-versa, and they won't change a Roman Catholic into a Presbyterian or vice-versa. The sooner we accept the fact that the mind is an entry that needs to be understood, the better we will be in our thinking. How long must we live before we can accept the fact that people make people sick? Why seek for toxins to explain it and drugs to alleviate it? Why not become honest and admit that the family creates its own mentally ill person. and why not take responsibility for the subtle and vicious handiwork sooner? When this is done, the research effort on the new frontiers will make more sense.

The broad, perspective goal of pediatrics is to aid in the provision of a happy, healthy childhood to the end that the individual child arrives at maturity having approximated his own potential physical, mental and social development. Such a goal scarcely permits a broadly based new frontier. The concept of the guidance of the child as an individual within the limits of his own physical and mental capacities has been the principal tenet of pediatrics for at least the last two generations.
Pediatrics, at its best, is comprehensive medicine applied specifically to the child, but requiring appreciation of the family, the neighborhood, and the school as the epidemiologic mediums in which he grows and develops.
The medical student must gain this broad perspective; to do so, he will need to think in terms of the developmental stages beginning with the fertilized egg (genetic and chromosomal factors), the embryo (nutritional, infectious and teratogenic factors) and the fetus (nutritional and infectious factors) and extending through adolescence. The prenatal approach to the etiology of permanent defects and to the general health status of the infant and subsequently of the child may be recognized as one of the subsidary frontiers. Perhaps, at the moment, greatest interest in research is centered in attempts to unravel the mysteries of genes and chromosomes and to separate
hereditary disorders from environmental ones acquired in utero.
There are other subsidiary frontiers in the various subspecialties of pediatrics such as in infectious diseases, cardiology, neurology, hematology, endocrinology, psychiatry, and the like. Significant advances have been and are being made in all of them.
It is the amalgamation of current knowledge into a wok-able form applicable to the individual infant or child which constitutes the hall-mark of the competent pediatrician.
The tw'o outstanding problems of pediatrics at the moment are pre-mature birth with its high risks of morbidity and mortality and. at the other end of the pediatric age span, juvenile deliquency. For each of these and for the many problems of pediatrics in the intervening years, the status of current knowledge (frontiers) must be defined; for the practitioner so that he can be as effective as current knowledge permits and for the investigator so that he can define, as precisely as possible, the problem to be solved.
It is the student of today who ultimately must advance the frontiers of pediatrics. To do so, his motivations must be deeply rooted in a thorough and sympathetic understanding of the psychologic environmental factors which permit and enable the child to become a healthy and effective adult — each according to his own innate capabilities.

Obstetrics and gynecology, too often characterized in the past as midwifery and hysterectomy. is expanding its frontiers in clinical practice and essential research in a fashion undreamed of two decades ago.
Reduction in the incidence of premature births is looked upon as the great challenge facing the specialty in this decade, particularly in that segment of women who do not avail themselves of prenatal care early in pregnancy. Basic work on myome trial physiology in progress will soon lead to an elucidation of the mechanism of onset of premature labor. Subclinical maternal infection, bacteruria, and cervical infection as related to spontaneous premature rupture of the fetal membranes, are but a few of possible causative factors under study.
The importance of psychologic factors in problems of reproduction lias been recognized and understanding of psychodynamics involved is developing. There is needed in actual practice a greater emphasis on mental health in pregnancy, a change from mere support of the parturient to a program of education which will make for better parents.
An effective contraceptive with greater acceptance and universal applicability should be available in the near future to those who desire it.
Proper utilization of the proven cytologic method of cancer detection should now begin to show practical results in decreasing the incidence of and deaths from invasive carcinoma of the cervix.
In the past year three different books devoted to the placenta have appeared. This feverish interest should give to the clinician a precise biochemical evaluation of placental function, and more exotically the ability to create an artificial uterus for premature infants. Another basic area of reproduction now-under intensive investigation is the complex relationship between hypothalamus, pituitary gland and ovaries.
Teaching of obstetrics and gynecology at Temple is taking into consideration newer concepts. Lectures in the junior year are directed away from standard material available from textbook sources. During the senior clerkship course, seminar conferences delving into frontiers of knowledge and constantly under modification are an integral part of the curriculum.

Law. in its restless quest to narrow the distance between legal policy and changing social needs, is particularly frenetic in legal medicine. As medicine opens new frontiers, new challenges are also thrust upon the law. Often precedent can be shaped to meet the new demands of science. Still more often the nature and direction of this growth are themselves too broad to permit certainty, or even approximation, of legal resolution. Furthermore, each forward surge in medicine throws it out of phase with certain other social institutions. As a consequence, the culture lag seems endless, delay appears to be legally endemic, and the gap between law and medicine appears ever wider.
While these gloomy portents are historically accurate, there are, however, signs of optimism. The incessant demands of time and change in medicine can only be met by new formulations of legal policy that not only reflect certainty in resolving present controversy, but also are flexible enough to meet needs as yet unborn or unspecified.
The tremendous controversy over thalidomide during the past year is illustrative. The immediate consequences were some hundreds of malformed babies, with the attendant possibilities of malpractice suits against physicians, and manufacturers’ liability suits against pharmaceutical houses. Less numerous, but socially just, or more significant, were the related acts of homocide — known and unknown. These ranged from a few documented cases such as the trial in Belguim of Suzanne Coipel-Vandcput — on the charge of murdering her seven-day-old baby and the trials of her alleged family co-conspirators, and the family physician as another co-conspirator — to undocumented, speculative situations of euthanasia. Equally far ranging were related problems of therapeutic abortion. The list of legal problems was, and is, as far spread as the ripples set in motion by the throw of a stone into a pond. Legislatures focus upon the act of throwing and have set
about to control the manufacture and distribution of drugs. Physicians were and are concerned with the impact, not only of the stone, but of the legislative reaction upon freedom of medical research. Lawyers were and arc concerned only with the ripples that reach to controversy.
Divided in this fashion, the ultimate verdict will probably once again be a finding of too little and too late. If time does not defeat us, complexity will. The only answer tenable is coordinate medico-legal efforts to assess the present and probable future dimensions of the basic concepts, and to fit these with laws that state social policy clearly and dynamically. This and only this remedy, will provide the stability and flexibility that is essential. This is the positive approach to new frontiers in the field of law and medicine. Its name is “research,” and its newness lies in application only; for in every other sense it is as old as homo sapiens himself.

The ‘new frontier’ in preventive medicine can come about in only one way — the complete and objective acceptance and practice of the concept of prevention by every physician, regardless of the nature of his practice or specialty. It is understandable that the physician in the past, and to a great extent in the present, he primarily treatment-oriented. Certainly, the existing ills and errors of living must be cared for as they occur, but now, more than ever, each physician must ask himself. “Did they have to occur.” and “What can I do to prevent more of the same?”
One can only conclude that for many physicians, preventive medicine is like the weather more discussion than action. It is a fact that a great amount of the mass of illness, suffering and handicapping in our favored country could be avoided now if each of us truly applied existing knowledge for prevention. It is a bitter fact that our death rate and life expectancy are not the best in the world, and could be improved considerably now. It is a sobering note that the nation and each citizen suffers a tremendous economic loss because of the avoidable necessity to care for the many who become ill or handicapped not by chance, but by their and our failure to put into action the preventive procedures that are available now.
Opportunities for prevention exist everywhere for everyone in medicine in the clinic, in the private office, in the operating room. They may be found in general practice and in every specialty. We can no longer afford to be satisfied with being repairmen only — no matter how competent. Rather, we should aspire to become the architects and builders of a society approaching the ideal of health as much as is scientifically possible. Only then can medicine claim to have attained its ultimate destiny.

Life as a medical student is demanding. The young man who enters upon this course of study must be confident that his capacity for assimilating knowledge will maintain him during these first trying years of adjustment to this ancient discipline. He will daily be presented new and important concepts in great quantity, and will learn to live with them intimately. Hie adage that the mind welcomes a new idea about as graciously as the body welcomes a foreign protein will appear to him as an old wives’ tale. On a thorough understanding of the composition of tissue, causes and patterns of its growth, he will superimpose a knowledge of decay and the innumerable disease processes which lead to that end. Patients will provide him with a spectrum of problems, the solutions of which he will learn to select from an array of approaches. As a student lie will not only Ik deciding what is or is not essential for another man's welfare, but will always be preparing for the unforeseen by inquiring beyond the narrow confines of any one problem. Among the skills the discipline of medicine demands of each of those who pass under its spell, the necessity to cultivate an inquiring mind is the most formidable.
In this regard, no one has benefited more than medicine itself. For as long as the study of medicine has been stimulating the minds of its newest converts it has been time and again refreshed by the fruits of their queries of nature. The history of medical student research is studded with the beginnings of famous investigative careers, of recognition of unknown body structures and diseases, and of revolutionary discoveries that have altered the course of medical study. Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936). for example, was no late responder to the challenge of medical research. By the time he had completed his pre-medical studies he had already received an award for his work on the innervation of the pancreas. Before termination of his studies for an M.D. degree he had so revealed his genius for investigative work, by publishing papers on the results of tieing off pancreatic ducts and techniques for making permanent pancreatic fistaulac in dogs, that he was asked to be director of what was in his day the most famous internal medicine clinic in Russia.
Harvard’s Walter B. Cannon (1871-1945) can be considered the American counterpart of Pavlov. Known best for his career as an inspiring teacher and for his contributions to physiology, Cannons spirit of inquiry pervaded every phase of his career. In his youth, through his readings of Thomas H. Huxley, he came to appreciate the biological aspect of life. It is not surprising, therefore, that as a student. when the roentgen ray first appeared on the medical horizon. 4te sought to apply it to his discipline. By the time he was graduated in 1900, he had performed the first X-ray studies of swallowing function, perfected a bismuth sub-nitrate solution for contrast radiographic study of the gut. and had become an authority on the movement of food
through the gastrointestinal tract.
Everyone knows the association Charles Best (1899- ) had, while a University of Toronto
medical undergraduate, with the isolation of “isletin" (insulin). Few people, however, are cognizant of the fact that the glands responsible for the production of this essential hormone were first described in the graduation thesis of Paul Langerhans (1847-1888), in 1869, in Berlin. With modesty befitting the short period he had thus far spent in the study of medicine he suggested that the pancreas was a more detailed structure than previously considered and that it. therefore, ought to be studied more thoroughly.
iyar Sandstrorn (1852-1889), in 1877. while pursuing his anatomy studies at Uppsala in Sweden discovered the parathyroid glands. He noted that their distinct microanatomy more closely resembled that of the pituitary than of the thyroid gland. But fame was not his to possess, for medicine had not yet acquired true awareness of the endocrine system. A detailed paper on his findings was rejected by a German periodical, necessitating rediscovery of the parathyroids by Gley in 1892.
Most medical students at some time during their clinical years have a chance to observe and examine a patient with Huntington’s Chorea. Phis disease has been seen in geographic pockets, the most notable in the United States being Long Island. It was here that George Huntington 1850-1916) was reared, and first observed the peculiarities of certain natives who has this disease. By the age of 22, upon graduation from Columbia University, he was ready to publish the first and what has come to be the classic account of this rare and hitherto unknown hereditary disease.
The last two contributors to be mentioned bring us closer to the present day. W. T. G. Morton (1819-1868) first displayed the value of ether as an anesthetic agent at the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1846. Throughout his investigation of this compound, and its ultimate demonstration, Morton was a student of the Harvard Medical School. This great American contribution to world medicine was the fruit of an inquiring mind. Basic to this accomplishment was the original synthesis of ether in 1540 by Valerius Cordus, a medical student at the University of Wittemberg. Hematology benefited from student inqtriry by the isolation of herparin in 1916 by Jay McLean (1890- ). He was at the
time performing research in the Johns Hopkins’ laboratory' of William H. Howell, the well-known physiologist who coined the name herparin for the substance discovered by his student. These examples arc illustrative of youthful inquiry in an age-old profession devoted to health and healing.
“For every man the world is as free as it was at the first day, and as full of untold novelties for him who has the eyes to see them.”

Alpha Omega Alpha
Alpha Omega Alpha is a National Honor Medical Society organized for the purpose of promoting scholarship and research within the medical school. Membership is awarded to those members of the student body who have attained high scholarship and are adjudged by the faculty and student members of the local chapter to have demonstrated promise of becoming leaders in the medical profession.
Alpha Omega Alpha was founded in 1902 at the University of Illinois. The Temple University Chapter was organized in 1950. The major activities of the society center around the annual lectureship, at which time an outstanding leader in medicine is invited to the Medical Center to discuss an aspect of medicine in which he is particularly renowned. The speaker is chosen by one of the four major departments in rotation. The lecture is followed by a formal initiation dinner.
The ideals of Alpha Omega Alpha are best expressed in its motto: “Worthy to Serve the Suffering.”

Babcock Surgical Society
The Babcock Surgical Society, orgainzed on October, 9. 1907, is one of the oldest undergraduate medical societies in the United States existing as it was originally founded. In our comparatively young and growing medical school, the Babcock Society has become a tradition which is justly cherished.
Perpetuating the name of Dr. W. Wayne Babcock, Emeritus Professor of Surgery, in whose honor it was founded, the Society’s aim is the promotion of intellectual discussions of new and current practices in surgery and related fields. At monthly meetings during the academic year, senior members present papers on various topics. An open discussion period follows each presentation, during which the members and faculty guests exchange ideas on the particular subject.
Membership is restricted to fifty students; twenty each from the senior and junior classes and ten from the sophomore class. New members arc selected by the staff and society members on the basis of scholarship, personality, and expressed interest.
At the conclusion of each year, a banquet brings together all present members of the Babcock Society and its alumni. A prominent member of the medical profession is invited to participate as guest speaker. An award is given at this time to the senior who, in the opinion of the other members, has presented the most outstanding paper. This name is added to a plague in the medical school and the senior student papers are bound in the library-for future reference.

225Student American Medical Association
K. Carman S. Renn R. Albertson R- Spratt
The Student American Medical Association was founded in 1950 by students from forty-one medical schools Its purposes are outlined in the constitution of SAM A. "... The objects of this Association shall be to advance the profession of medicine, to contribute to the welfare and education of medical students, interns, and residents, to familiarize its members with the purpose and ideals of organized medicine, and to prepare its members to meet the social, moral and ethical obligations of the profession of medicine."
During the past thirteen years SAMA has become the voice of the medical students in the United States. It now totals more than sixty thousand active members and affiliates in seventy-six medical schools and hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States.
The scope and depth of its activities have increased proportionately with SAMA's growth. Its most recent advance was to join the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations with the hope of providing its members with a better understanding of medical problems in other lands. This alliance also affords members a greater opportunity to visit and work fn foreign countries through the International Student Exchange Program of the IFMSA.
SAMA originated the idea for a medical student loan fund which has recently become a concrete entity in the form of the American Medical Association Education and Re-
search Foundation Loan Guarantee Program (AMA-ERF
A study of intern and resident stipends is now in progress with the hope of making these stipends more.nearly commensurate with the expenses, educational background, and responsibilities of interns and residents. Also under evaluation are Medical Career Day Programs in order to determine how SAMA may be of service in stimulating interest in medical careers among school and college students.
At Temple various activities have been undertaken by the SAMA chapter in order to serve its members. The Student Directory and Student Newsletter were again sponsored by SAMA. Tours of the medical school and hospital were provided by SAMA members for Freshmen during Orientation Week and for interested groups of visitors during the year The internship evaluation file was again maintained in the library, and was used often by seniors in search of candid, unbiased, and qualified opinions.
Projected programs include a lecture on a current non-academic topic, and the annual presentation of the SAMA award to an outstanding senior student. The local SAMA chapter also contributes to the continuing exchange of ideas on current topics by sending a representative to local and state medical society meetings and to regional and national SAMA meetings.

Women’s Auxiliary to S.A.M.A.
Tho Temple Chapter of the Womans’ Auxiliary to the Student American Medical Association was one of the twenty-six original chapters that formed the national organization on May 4. 1958. Since then it has enjoyed a prosperous and extensive growth.
The Temple Chapter attempts to simplify the transition that each wife must make as the medical student matures into the practicing physician. It acquaints the wives with the aims and ideals of the medical profession, and introduces them to some of the various medical auxiliaries and organizations. In addition to this, the organization renders philanthropic service to the Temple University Medical Center and its affiliates.
The current year’s activities began with a Welcome Tea for new wives in early September. Meetings, featuring guest speakers, were held monthly. The grand highlight of the year was Monte Carlo Night held in November. Charlotte Albertson. General Chairman, and her Committee,
promoted a financial and social success in their initial venture into this area of student entertainment. Approximately $700 was raised by Monte Carlo, plus a raffle held the same evening. This money will be used to provide medical students with some form of supplementary finance, such as a scholarships, a loan fund, or a general improvement fund. The Christmas program gave the wives an opportunity to display their own varied talents. The year closed with the Senior Tea: here graduating wives received their P.H.T. (Putting Him Through degrees.
The Temple Chapter meets with the Chapters of Hahnemann, Jefferson and the Philadelphia Intern and Residents Group twice a year as part of a city-wide program. Nine medical schools in geographic proximity to each other also meet in the fall and spring of each year, at regional meetings. to exchange ideas. Representatives from all member schools gather annually at the National Convention held in conjunction with the SAMA National Meeting.

The Christian Medical Society is a non-denominational professional organization of physicians, dentists medical and dental students who are interested in satisfying man’s spiritual, as well as his physical needs. The Society has a dual goal: first, to edify the members' personal lives spiritually and, second, to extend the reality of the Christian faith to patients, colleagues, those individuals contacted daily, and to peoples throughout the world, by actively supporting medical missions.
The Temple Chapter this year promoted a program which centered around bi-monthly individual class praytr and Bible study meetings. The Chapter at large met monthly for either a recreational activity or to discuss a topic of interest, usually led by a guest physician. Working with the medical clinic in one of the City's rescue missions was a project throughout the year. We participated in various activities with the city-wide CMS organization which

includes sister chapters of the other medical colleges in Philadelphia The Second Annual Thomas Nl. Durant Lecture was also sponsored by the Chapter.
As the horizons of medicine broaden, we find it satisfying and necessary to reflect on the Christian perspective in the new medical frontier. Our Society attempts to keep this perspective ever vital and sharply attuned to the spiritual needs of the modern practitioners of medicine or dentistry, be they graduates or students.

Alpha Epsilon Iota was established in 1890 with the purpose of “helping all women to a higher and broader life." The Temple University Chapter came into being on April 7. 1948, when 46 women were initiated.
The Temple Chapter House at 1409-1411 West Ontario Street serves as a residence for its members and a common meeting place for women medical students.
This year our traditional open house was held on September twenty-third with music provided by the “Swinging Shepards." A Christmas dinner and the pledging of 6 freshman women took place on December twelfth.
This past year many improvements were made in the house. Replacing plaster, rewiring electrical circuits, whitewashing the basement walls and acquiring new furniture constitued some of the significant renovations.

Emory Burnett. W. Edward Chamber-lain. A. Neil Lemon, and John A. Kolrner. Since then it has grown to become one of the largest and most active medical fraternities, both locally and nationally. by fostering an environment of fellowship and mutual interest for its members. The national fraternity has expanded from its initial chapter, founded on July 25, 1886, at Dartmouth Medical School, to include forty-three active chapters in twenty-six states and Canada.
The year began particularly well as we took up residence in our new and permanent West Ontario
Street home, and pledged a full class of freshmen The monthly parties provided ample relaxation from the busy study schedule that is an integral part of medical school. Each month we were honored to have with us a member of the medical school faculty to discuss current problems in medicine which are not included in the traditional lecture curriculum. The social calendar was. once again, highlighted by our very successful Christmas Party and the annual Spring picnic at the New Jersey shore. These events coupled with the bull sessions, sports and other traditional extra-curricular fraternity activities made the 1962-63 school year one of the best in the history of AKK.

231Phi Beta Pi
Phi Beta Pi was founded in 1891 at the Western Pennsylvania Medical College which is now the Medical School of the University of Pittsburgh. The Beta Eta chapter at Temple University School of Medicine was founded in 1934.
This past year has been a memorable one for Phi Beta Pi because the National fraternity merged with another medical fraternity, Theta Kappa Psi. This added twenty-three new chapters to our number, bringing the total to fifty-six. Dr. Leroy E. Burney, former Surgeon-General of the United States Public Health Service, now Vice-President of Health Services at Temple and a member of Phi Beta Pi, was chosen as the Phi Beta Pi Man of the year by the National Fraternity.
This year the local brotherhood moved into a new chapter house at 1421 West Allegheny Avenue. This large and stately mansion is more than adequate as
a residence for several of the brothers, and as a center for social and educational acitvities. 1'he members of Phi Beta Pi will not forget the untiring, unselfish assistance of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Woodring, whose boundless enthusiasm and dedication made this year of transition a marvelous success in the new fraternity residence.
A Wives’ Club was organized this year so that the wives of married brothers could participate more actively in fraternity affairs. They played an integral role in the planning and executing of the redecorating and renovating of the new chapter house.
Our many parties, dinners, and other social events, including the annual Spring picnic, provided many enjoyable moments throughout the school year. Phi Beta Pi continued to dominate intramural basketball among the professional fraternities by finishing undefeated last season.

Sigma Chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon has promoted high academic standards and good fellowship in its forty-two years of existence.
This year, the Aaron Brown Lectureship, sponsored annually by the fraternity, presented Dr. Robert E. Gross, of Boston, to the entire medical school. Dr. Gross, an outstanding authority in his field, inovated surgery by the repair of patent ductus arteriosus. The annual cocktail party and banquet, in honor of the guest speaker, again provided the high point of this academic year.
Seminars, led by various faculty members and held throughout the year, helped to round out the academic side. The many convivial social functions held throughout the year also helped to promote the spirit of the fraternity.

Phi Rho Sigma
Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Rho Sigma Medical Fraternity continues a hearty program in its house located at 3232 North 16th Street. Nineteen new members were inducted at the annual initiation ceremony held in conjuncion with the University of Pennsylvania and Jefferson Medical College Chapters at Penn’s Lambda Phi Chapter House on October 27, 1962. The success of rushing, headed by Bill Slump, was partly due to several outdoor barbecue dinners held on the lawn of the house, several faculty speakers, a series of parties with jam sessions by a combo recruited from the brotherhood, and dedicated efforts of the Wives' Club to decorate the house more attractively.
Founded at Northwestern University Medical School in 1890, the now International Fraternity has 26 active chapters in the United States and Canada. Alpha Lambda Chapter, established at Temple in 1932, has occupied its present mansion since 1910. Since the arrival of Dr. John Franklin Huber, from the University of Michigan in 1936, the Temple Chapter has benefited from his wise counsel and material support. Also active in the international sphere, Dr. Huber is now serving a second biennium as Grand Chapter President. An annual John Franklin Huber Lecture was begun six years ago in his honor. The Fifth Lecture was.given in the medical school auditorium on November 7, 1962, by Dr. George W. Corner, anatomist and medical historian. His topic was “Genius and Medical Research'’; it pertained to a history of the Rockefeller Institute which has been compiled by Dr. Corner.
Ed Morhauser and John Wysocki represented the Chapter at its National Convention at the Ingleside Resort. Staunton, Virginia, in June 1962. New ideas concerning fraternity activities and contributions to medical students, their families, and alumni members came from this meeting. A new Membership Directory of the Chapter was distributed in October, and increased alumni interest was promoted through a committee appointed by the Chapter members. The fraternity continues to champion good fellowship, good scholarship, and high ethical precepts.SEATED: J. Wysocki, R. Brereton, R. Derstine. H. DiRienzo, E. Valentine, A Berenato, R. Plummer. E.

243Medical Technology and the New Frontier
One of the newer horizons in the field of laboratory diagnosis lies in the realm of exfoliative cytology. Keeping pace with the changing times Temple University Hospital is forever expanding. Within the Department of Pathology the cytology lab plays an important part in cancer detection and correlation of other pathologic findings.
The major portion of work is in the area of screening gynecologic or “Pap smears” although pulmonary, gastric, esophageal, colonic, spinal fluid and all body cavity fluids are evaluated. Hormonal evaluations, sex chromatin studies, radiation response and eosinophil estimations are a few of the extra services offered by this laboratory.
Cytology is a specific field of technology requiring specialized training. At Temple wc have an approved School of Cvto-Technology requiring a minumum of two years college c redits to enter the course. Six months of concentrated study in all phases of cytology are offered to small groups of students to afford individual attention.
With the evei increasing demand on the laboratory of Exfoliative Cytology the School of Cyto-Technologv must expand to meet the future needs of the growing medical profession.MedicalClass Officers

TEMPLE UNIVERSITYsClass History
On August 30, 1960, 105 girls from all over the Eastern coast packed their bags, said their farewells to family and friends, and journeyed to Philadelphia to begin their careers as “dedicated" student nurses at Temple University Hospital. For many it was the first time away from home and amid the joy there were tears.
Upon arriving in the city of Brotherly Love, we were ushered to one.of two “probie” nurses’ homes by Miss Coll, our beloved educational director. Sixty-eight nurses-to-be were housed at Carlisle. The physical appearance made quite, an impression on everyone! Outside, it was no different than any other building in the neighborhood, but inside it was a home away from home for many. The remainder of the class went to Allegheny House. Since Allegheny was once a very large home, it reflected the grandeur of many years ago. One of the memorable features was the second floor ballroom, large enough to house ten girls.
Orientation week began with a bang! A picnic in the middle of the city is quite an experience — Fairmont Park Guards stationed all around and we still got lost! We then toured the city via PTC. Even the subways were a big thrill to some of us. “Can-Can" was next, ending a very enjoyable day.
After our heads had been filled with many fundamentals of what seemed an almost impossible goal, we were told we were oriented!
Next down to the studies of becoming a nurse. The first and most important lesson was that there is absolutely nothing lower than a probie! How memorable the days of standing in groups of twenty or more.
gazing in awe at the most envious of all — a senior nurse!
The second lesson was learning about medical students do they always tell the truth, and if so. why did he tell your roommate the same thing the night before?
Classes took up most of our “waking" moments! First there was Anatomy with Dr. Troyer and his cigar, and then Dr. Grannis with his endless chemical equations that completely obliterated the blackboard. Dr. Anderson, who taught us Microbiology and is held in the highest esteem by all student nurses, always had a smile for everyone. Mrs. Watts assisted him by helping us tell one bug from another. Mrs. Chase, who's been bedridden for years, was also among our oldest associates, and I'm sure none of us will ever forget thfe first day we were assigned Jo floor duty — our first patient being .either a cardiac just up front the A.D., or a Babcock patient with trach tube, chest tubes, a cut-down, and all those other then-mysterious instruments.
And so to the University where Mr. Burnham greeted us with Sociology book in hand. Also, Foods and Nuts left a mark of some kind on each of us.
Meanwhile back at the nurses’ residence! we were really getting to know each other, and already a few girls had dropped out. Student government took form, and “parties” and meetings were held. Christmas came along and was crowned by Santa, a play written by the students, and various talents.
February 18, 1961, brought the excitement of the Capping Dance held at Tioga. Everyone’s date proved memorable in one way or another.
bruary 25, 1961, 2:00 I’ M.. Resurrection,'fcpisco-pal Church, and we, were capped! It was a rainy miserable day weather-wise, but each student was a ray of sunshine in her brand new. white cap. Miss Florence Brown, and Miss Rita Coll performed the capping, assisted by Miss Jane Steward.
Now our duties began in earnest. Even though we had previously been on the floors, now that we were capped we felt more like student nurses, especially after our first week on shift or night duty. Flashlights and morning reports became second nature to us, along with those moming-after-the-night-before phone calls. We were also to he found in the OR, learning to distinguish one mumble from another. Two more class blocs followed over the next two and a half -years with many new instructors: Dr. Adams, who gave "us the best lectures wo ever had; Miss Packer and her laboratory tray; and Mrs. Warinemachcr and her low salt diets.
In August of ’61, we received our first stripe. Now we were intermediates, and what a joy to have probies because now there was someone lower than we were. Our class was at last combined, and Tioga was home for the entire class of ’63. Those apartments, the elevator, the plumbing, the heating — will we ever forget it, but it was home sweet home. And we really didn’t mind when the bus broke down, because we felt safer walking. Christmas found us gathered in our “lounge” watching Santa taking requests from “our instructors.” When summer rolled around, so did the sunburns, but that didn't discourage the use of our private sundcck — the roof, cinders and all!! None of us will ever forget Tioga and its fun-filled halls.
Affiliations and specialities started. Byberry, with its keys, where a good nurse must be able to play
baseball and cards, and St. Christopher's — the children areJ cute! General duty and OB were the call for the rest of the class.
It’s moving day again. June. 1962. and the long promised Jones Residence for Women was ready! It's heaven! The building and furnishings are beautiful, the elevators work, and Ve even have hot water! Yellow sheets and brown towels add the finishing touch of elegance. They’re even trying to fix the fire alarms, but then a good student nurse who works hard can sleep through anything! And now we were seniors with two stripes, and after our humble beginning in nurses' training, we felt as if we had it made!
Two more gala social activities climaxed our senior year: the dinner dance at Germantown Cricket Club (Dr. Daly helped make it complete), and the farewell dan .j
Graduation was faced with mixed emotions. We were eager to conquer the world, but the pink and white was certainly comfortable! Some girls are being married, some are going on to college for their degrees, and others are going to work.
While our class history probably differs little from other classes of student nurses, to us it is important because it is ours. Our history is known to us because it is past; our future is before us unknown — but challenging. The status of nursing has been elevated considerably since its origin, but it is the feverant hope of the class of 1963 to add to the future progress of this worthy profession!

comes to us from Presbyterian-St. Luke’s in Chicago and to be sure, it's Temple’s gain! Ask her about her first night shifting on 2PP when she found herself with three emergencies in one hour! In her spare time she is usually out with her fiance, a resident from Hahnemann and often found busy making new friends. Marriage and a teaching career are seen in the near future for Linda.JOYCE ANN ST A UFFER
Rutherford Heights, Pennsylvania
A resident of Harrisburg, this tall blonde had her bags packed to catch the 5:25 every Friday when she had the weekend off, but there weren’t enough of those weekends were there Joyce?

Joyce has chosen an ideal profession, with her warmth, humor and eagerness to please; she will go far in the world she is entering.
CHERYL BETH STETLER

Churl, as she will tell v ou her name is pronounced. can always bp seen around campus with a radiant smile on her face, and a pile of books in her hands. Just ask her roommates who studied most, listened to more problems than anyone else, but who was always readv to go out for a steak dinner. As VP of the class and co-editor of the Skull, she still found time to sell bedpan's and bathing Ruts. A future teacher after a Temple degree. Cheryl hopes someday to trade her B.S. for a Mrs.KA THLTN MART STRA UB
Kathy, our tiny redheaded speedball, changed more than anyone in these three long years. Her iindescribable laugh and sense? of humor are good reasons for her popularity, with both sexes. Kathy’s favorite pastime is dancing. Have you ever seen her twist? Her biggest desire in life, right now, is a trip to Viet Nam. Won’t January ever come? Counting the days won’t make it come any faster. Her future plans include working in the OR and marriage.

“Barb" known for her sunny disposition and never ending smile, is always looking for good times and usually finds them. Barb likes music, talking, long walks, and making new friends. She is a member of the decoration committee for our dances, and sang in the Glee Club. Barb's unfailing smile and sense of humor should make her as popular in the years to come as she has been at Temple.
Ruthie. with dimples personified, has a sincere velvet charm and personality known to all. She has participated in chorus and various committees. including the lawn festival, dances and hoagie sales; and has found time also for long walks, heated discussions, late shows and parties. Her major maladjustment is getting to work on time. Ruthie plans to work at Temple, and with liei steady determination, we predict a successful future.

EVA MARIE WHITSEL
■ ty Jx
Mount I mon, Pennsylvania
Eve is from Mount Union, Pa. Some of her likes include favoring Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s ■‘Sonnet from the Portugese,” classical music, good books and flowers. On the oilier hand she has an active interest in sports. On first glance Eve gives one the appearance of being calm, cool, composed yet her warm sincere laugh disarms all. The strong qualities of a true friend are found in her. After graduation she will work before pursuing her degree.DONNA LOU WOLFE
Camp Hill. Pennsylvania
Donna, belter known as “Wolfie,” was a member of partment 5-5. Whenever there is trouble, you’ll always find Wolfie: usually in the middle of it. Why did you bide every Monday night at 7:30. Wolfie? Could it be your singing voice was out of shape? The Capping Dance was it for Donna. Why do you like the song, ''Anchors Away?-' Future plans include her marriage to 'Ferry. She plans to work at Tl'H as a graduate.
LOIS MAE WOLOWIEC
Coming to. us from MacAdoo, Pa., everyone marvels at Lois’s neatness and organization. She is often referred to as "neatness personified.'' Wolo-wiec is an unfailingly pleasant individual, who has a knack for "saying the right thing at the right time.” Beginning each day with a thought for the day pinned on her wall, she ends it with an accomplishment. She is a conscientious nurse who does well in all departments. Although Lois tends to stay in the background, she will be in the foreground of our memories of our past three years at Temple.
327MART KA THERINE TOST
Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania
Hookie is by far one of our most congenial classmates. She has been active in chorus and sjjent three years on our basketball team. With those rosy checks and the gleam in her eyes these days, could she be thinking of that certain redhead and a fall wedding? It seems like only yesterday when Miss Yost was signing all those documents for Miss Rupp, and oh yes. who will ever forget those possum acts?
TO THE 1963 GRADUATE:
Today you become a graduate nurse. What this means to you and to society depends upon how you assume your new resjxmsibility. To gain satisfaction from your work, you must always see the challenges of nursing, and then attempt to meet them with personal and professional pride.
During your career as an R.N., you will see methods change, but the essence of nursing will not change. The basis of nursing always will remain simple and sincere understanding of the patient’s problems.
It’s my wish that during the years to come you will know the contentment that comes from a job well done.

This student nurse who is accompanied by a midwife from a medical center in Iran, has been sent to the house of a recently delivered woman whose newborn is being looked after according to their best asceptic methods. Vastly different from this scene are the modem methods and facilities used by the student nurses at Temple.
it)Along with the major advances in medicine, the age-old practice of nursing has, of necessity, been adapted to the new techniques and equipment devised in the last century. It is no longer sufficient just to
know the mechanics involved. The modem nurse is required to have a knowledge of both theory and practice in order to give her patients the best cate | ossiblc. This includes an understanding of subjects

Chevalier Jackson Clinic and its BronchoesophagologyIn Memoriam
As we look at the new dormitory and then at a portrait of the person for whom the building was named, we see an outstanding paradox. While the building is noticeable for its strength and height at a glance, it is the exact opposite of Edith Bolling Jones, who was small of stature and gracefully quiet. This, however, is where the paradox ends, for Mrs. Jones’ interest in nurses, graduates and students alike, was far greater than the building could ever show.
To those who knew her personally, her charm, vitality, and quiet efficiency were loved by all. It was to Mrs. Jones that everyone brought their problems. No problem was too great or too insignificant for her to undertake.
For twenty years she resided on the Temple University Board of Trustees, centering her interests mainly upon the affairs of the hospital and the school of nursing. She was one of the founders and former president of the Temple Medical Center Auxiliary, which continues to grow as it helps the hospital itself to grow.
The new residence, though beautiful and grand as it is. is but a small tribute tc the one who did so much for us all - EDITH BOLTING JONES.
By definition, a dedication means to inscribe by way of honor or compliment, and we the Class of “63" feel no one is more worthy of this tribute than our parents.
It was to them we bade farewell with tears in our eyes and an ache in our hearts as we set forth on a new adventure — nursing.
During the hardest six months of our life, our parents were right behind us with sympathetic yet encouraging words to “set us right with the world."
We were proud when we received our cap but no prouder than our parents who sat in the audience watching this symbolic ceremony. Symbolic because it signified that we had reached the first of many plateaus.
As the next two and a half years passed our parents were still right behind us, laughing when we laughed, comforting us when we cried and sending us money when we were broke.
Now as we are dressed fully in white, we look into the eyes of our parents with perhaps a tear or two but mostly with admiration and respect.
275The Nightingale Pledge
l solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly:
To pass my life in purity and practice my profession faithfully.
1 will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.
I will do all in my power to elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my profession.
With loyalty will 1 endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to mv care.
27 Director of Nurses
FLORENCE E. BROWN In such a large medical teaching center, it is necessary to have someone capable of making the right decisions. Fortunately for us, we have at Temple a woman of unlimited talents. Through her skill and interest, not only our nursing school, but the hospital has benefited in many ways. It was many of her ideas that helped to create the beautiful new Edith Bolling Jones Residence for Women.
Coming to us from Rochester. Minnesota. Miss Brown started her career here at Temple as supervisor of the operating room. By 1951 she was Director of Nursing, which position she has held ever since. Last year she also took on the duties of Acting Director of Education. Rounding out her busy schedule is the Southeastern Pennsylvania League of Nursing, of which she is president.
To every student in our class. Miss Brown represents the ideal nurse. With the wisdom and patience of a saint, she has helped us through these past three years. We are extremely proud of our Directress, and hope in the years to come that we can become at least half the nurse she is.

“All that mankind has done, thought, or been, it is lying in magic preservation in the pages of books." . . . Carlyle
It would take a book to list all the things that our advisors, Mrs. Luby Dietrich and Mrs. Mary Murphy, have done for us. But most important was their constant encouragement and support which helped make so many of our undertakings successful.
In spite of her many responsibilities as Head Nurse in the Accident Dispensary, Mrs. Dietrich still found time to help sponsor many fund raising activities for the class of 1963.
Mrs. Murph, nurse in our Proctology and Surgical Clinic, added her enthusiasm and skill with a personal touch in our Fall Lawn Festival and other projects.
We, the Class of 1963, are proud to have had two such fine people as our advisors. For their endless guidance, interest, and assistance we thank them!

285— I am between two doors I find,
One in front and one behind.
The door behind is slowly closing;
The one before is not yet open.
Before and behind different paths lay,
But the clicking of a door eliminates one way. It’s too late now for turning back;
From this day on. I’m on the right track!
Betty bThe Declaration of Geneva
Now being admitted to the profession of Medicine, I solemnly pledge to consecrate my life to the service of humanity. I will give respect and gratitude to my deserving teachers. I will practice medicine with conscience and dignity. The health and life of my patients will be my first consideration. I will hold in confidence all that my patient confides in me. 1 will maintain the honor and noble traditions of the medical profession. My colleagues will be as my brothers. 1 will not permit consideration of race, religion, nationality, party politics or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient. I will maintain the utmost respect for human life from its conception. Even under threat I will not use my knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity. These promises I make freely and upon my honor.
Temple S. Fay B.S., M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. Temple S. Fay, eminent neurosurgeon and Professor and Head of the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Temple University School of Medicine from 1929 to 1943, died on March 7, 1963, at the age of 68. A native of Seattle, Dr. Fay received a B.S. degree at the University of Washington in 1917, and his M.D. degree at the University of Pennsylvania four years later. Special training under Dr. Charles H. Frazier at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and at the Philadelphia General Hospital and Episcopal Hospital prepared him well for the chair in neurosurgery at Temple. Recipient of an American Medical Association Gold Medal for Scientific Exhibit in 1929, he was awarded a Special A.M.A. Award of Merit and the International Cancer Research Foundation Prize in 1935. Co-founder of the Harvey Cushing Society, he became its President in 1937. A stimulating teacher and thinker, he trained several expert residents, among them his first resident. Dr. Michael Scott, who is now Chairman and Professor of the Department of Neurological Surgery, and Dr. Henry T. Wycis, who has pioneered in stereotaxic surgery. Dr. Fay wrote numerous articles on cerebral trauma, epilepsy, brain and spinal cord tumors, and contributed to Babcock’s Principles and Practice of Surgery (1944). His research on hypothermia pioneered present surgical refrigeration procedures, and his dehydration treatment of eclampsia (with Dr. Jesse O. Arnold of the Temple faculty) stimulated intensive study of the toxemias of pregnancy. Dr. Fay’s contributions to progress in neurology and neurosurgery will long be remembered.
365The class of 1963 would like to express their gratitude and indebtedness to our patrons for their loyal support.

W W w and it looks deceptively simple. Certainly not as complex as an x-ray machine, a fully equipped operating room, or a modern pharmaceutical analysis laboratory. But appearances can be deceiving. Into this capsule went countless hours of research, the clinical investigation of thousands of patients by scores of physicians and-finally-painstaking manufacturing controls. And-with the help of this capsule-physicians are able to provide more effective care for their patients.
Smith Kline French Laboratories is dedicated to the discovery and manufacture of these seemingly simple medicines ... prescription drugs which have revolutionized the physician’s treatment of his patients.
