y fWod S Ij UNtVERSITV OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 6CH00L OF MEDICINE DEDICATION In deepest appreciation of his many years of inspirational teaching in the School of Medicine; his contributions to the science of pharmacology and therapeutics; his efforts toward teaching the scien- tific rationale of treatment rather than the expediency of it; his imparting to each student an approach of critical evaluation of medical advances; and to his embodiment of the vigorous role of the basic sciences to clinical medicine; we respectfully dedicate the Asklepiad of 1961 to our beloved Professor of Pharmacology, Dr. John L. Webb. HSG DEAN ' S MESSAGE TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1961 I came to U.S.C. when you were beginning your second year. The past three years have been, what I consider, an exciting adventure in Medical Education. Great and significant developments are occurring with respect to your Medical School. A medical campus is being constructed adjacent to the Los Angeles County General Hospital. It is the hope of the University and Medical School administra- tions that this campus environment will evolve into a renowned U.S.C. medical eduction and research center, o center of learning of which you will always be proud and Interested in supporting. I hope each of you appreciate the opportunity you have had in obtaining your medical education at U.S.C, and that you will utilize the opportunity as alumni to participate actively in its graduate medical education programs. As alumni you have a vested interest in the Medical School. Directly as well as through the Alumni Association you will have an opportunity to make your interests known. A medical school ' s reputation in the community is directly related to the character of its graduates and the quality of medicine they practice. The medical School administration and faculty are proud of you and are confident you will always represent the best in your profession and as citizens wherever you may live. Good luck and best wishes. Clayton G. Loosli, M.D. Dean FACULTY NERLICH, WILLIAM EDWARD Associate Professor of Medicine and Assistant Dean (Student Affairs) SAUNDERS, PAUL R.

For, in September of 1960 the freshman class started instruction in the new medical campus adjacent to the Los Angeles County General Hospital. The new facilities had their ultimate beginning in 1885 when Dr. J. P. Widney, with the assistance of some of Los Angeles ' most able physicians founded a Medical Depart- ment for the University. It was the only university medical school west of the Mississippi at that time. The twelve students who comprised the first graduating class paid $315.00 apiece for the entire three-year curriculum, which at that time was one of the longest in the country. Then, as now, the County Hospital provided the chief source of inpatient training. In the school clinics the poor of the rapidly enlarging southern California pueblo of 30,000 were cared for. However, numerous crises lay ahead. The business depression of 1889, inadequate facilities, and lack of endowments severely curtailed the growth of the young school. Unable to overcome these difficulties the school was offered to the University of California in 1909 and it became the Los Angeles Department of the School of Medicine. At that time the College of Physicians and Surgeons, which had just been recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges, became affiliated with USC. This relation- ship continusd until 1919 when the Medical School was forced to close again because of inadequate funds. In 1928 the present school was founded due to the impetus of Rufus B. von KkinSmid, then President of the University. The class in 1928 numbered fifty-four, while the faculty numbered twenty-four. The story of our present growth begins several years ago when Drs. J. Howard Payne, ' 42, and Howard House, ' 35 decided to raise an alumni fund to aid their School. They set their goal at $16,000. That this initial idea was trans- formed into an overwhelming force to have a unified medical center is a mognificant tribute to the dedication and devo- tion of the alumni and friends of the School. The first stsp was the purchase of a twelve acre medical campus site adjacent to County Hospital by the University. Two years later the five story Raulston Research Building was completed at a cost of $1,500,000. In 1959 it was announced that the second and third units of the Medical Center would be constructed. These buildings, the McKibben Building and the Seeley Wintersmith Mudd Memorial Laboratory of the Medical Sciences, were opened for use in the fall of 1960. It II H H 11 I! m ii III If would be impossible to list all the people who have given their time, energy, and money to make the dream of a USC Medical Center a reality. It will suffice to note the efforts of groups. More that $200,000.00 was contributed by friends of the medical school; the faculty donated another $200,000.00; $93,000.00 was given by the Commonwealth Fund; the Medical Alumni Association gave over $300,000.00; tne students (classes of 1955-62; pledged nearly $500,000.00. Two decades of planning hove gone into the new campus. Now, four other units are required for its completion. Only when these become a reality will there be a unified com- plex of all medical disciplines. These new facilities are: the Medical Library; a new Research Building; the Postgraduate School and Medical Forum; and the Medical School Com- mons. The estimatsd cost of these st ructures is close to six million dollars. Throughout its history the School of Medicine has hod a close relationship with the Los Angeles County General Hospital. The 3,600 bed hospital offers to the students clinical situations of a magnitude unknown elsewhere. Children ' s Hospital, Good Hope Medical Foundation, and Barlow San- itorium also enable the students to experience first-hand training that is perhaps unsurpassed by any other medical school. In the School ' s affiliation with these institutions a two-way street of service is performed — student education and patient care. Besides patient care and teaching medical students the third Lg of a medical school ' s role in research. Nearly 400 projects are under way at the School now. Among the areas under investigation are arteriosclerosis, effects of smog on pulmonary diseases, insulin resistance in diabetics, hormones and breast cancer, mental illness, cardiac s urgery, and elec- tron microscope studies of the measles virus. Today the School of Medicine has an enrollment of 272 and a faculty of 1,200. Add to this 50 post-graduate students in the basic sciences, two dozen fellows in the clinical sciences, and 2,000 medical attendees in extension courses. This is the growth of the Medical School. And now the School looks forward, with its own inherent values, with the University, and with the Hospital, to building what it hopes will be the greatest medical teaching center in the West. LES FEMMES MARJI JONES MYRTLE FIELDS EVA LANDON LEE EDIS The very size and complexity of our medical school-county hospital facilities makes the ladies pictured on these pages play a vital role in our medical education. From the time of our application to school though to the point of our graduation, and even after, a member of this group is avail- able to help us. The endless schedules, departmental notes, and appreciated syllabuses were made possible by the work of these people. W m " ' P 3B iiHKH ,4 1 m ,,ii,:!

However, we can recognize their value to us. We will re- member the " read now, pay later " policy of the bookstore and the attentive and understanding ear of Marji Jones as we bombarded her with a constant stream of vindictiveness and plaintive appeals. We wish to give heartfelt thanks to these many women for the function they perform for the school and for the kind assistance and patience they have shown to the students. RUTH YOUNG SUE VANONI DR. PROCTOR GLORIA MANGOLD HELEN O ' NEIL . • To open this annual and realize the implications must be a thrill for each of the Seniors. It sym- bolizes a great experience, the recollections of which will move him even more in later years. Looking past the near future, prescient contemplation of the new era ahead becomes a matter of your primary interest. We who constitute the medical profession will look at your new Asclepiads with interest; you will try to perceive the proximate working conditions that we hove provided for you. Also, you will be much interested in the changes that are being hearalded, and you will try to envisage the forces at work. In the coming decades the responsibility of the physician will remain the same as it is today. Our mission is to make available to all patients the benefits of all scientific knowledge that may be of help in preserving or regaining health. In these matters our profession proudly views its achievements, and humbly recognizes the vast extent of that which is unknown. It is the socio-economic milieu of the physician ' s future that seems to be in a ferment and occupies the interest of our society at the pres- ent. Some of our examiners are obviously calumnious; most of them are wholesome and sincere. Men who are just graduating from medical school represent an intriguing facet to the foregoing matter. They have been produced by the people of our nation and educated by our Universities. The physicians of our country are therefore produced by this combination, and not by the American Medi- cal Association. If we have qualitative inadequacies, it is clear where the major part of the responsi- bility lies. Now is a propitious time for each of you to pause for self-appraisal and to clearly define the principles that you must now follow in the care of your patients. To steadfastly stand by your principles you will need to muster much courage. The fascination of medical science and practice will free you from envying all others, and wholesome success will fill you with pride as a member of our profession. When the new Doctor of Medicine looks ahead, and tries to identify future problems there comes the realization that he delineate most of the important ones. Inventory of his own potential will establish that his assets are measured by his thinking capacity, for his career is to be an intellectual one. Knowl- edge and experience will give judgment. His professional capital will be his time, and this will be easy to squander. Five minutes wasted with each of twenty patients seen in one day will cost the physician two hours. Two hours spent in daily study will determine the difference between mediocrity and pro- fessional distinction. Therefore, he must demand of himself the execration of every activtiy which is not clearly purposeful. High excellence in those judgments will not be achieved if the temporal equa- tions produce inadequate allowances for his wife and family. If the conservation of time is to be a canon for himself, the physician must conscientiously apply the same rule to the time of his patients. There are other well identified shortcomings that are much abhored by patients. Dourness and lack of personal interest may be compatible with very " scientific " practice but the presence of either is pro- foundly destructive of patient-physician rapport. The patient ' s need for sincere personal interest and service by the physician is also the most fundamental consideration by which the private practice of medicine can be defended against replacement by welfaristic collectivism. One common shibboleth of in- adequate personal service is unavailability, which also happens to be a feature of all systems of regi- mentation. Unavailability ranks with fiscal unfairness as a just cause of patient dissatisfaction. Matters such as the foregoing represent the areas in which our patients find cause to criticize us. Society is gratified with and proud of our scientific achievements. In consonance with this latter fact is the recognition by all practitioners that there is no higher distinction than that accorded to those investigators who contribute significant new knowledge. Clarence J. Berne, M.D. Professor of Surgery A nviTic STUDENT COUNCIL McCRANIE The student council as headed by its illustrious President, whose name I forget, steamed off this year armed with many delusions, a few illusions and a couple of ideas. Some of these have even come to fruition. Special mention must be made of Hugh Schade, Senior Class President; and of Dick Williams, Junior Class President; without whom nothing could have been accomp- lished. Our advisor. Dr. William Nerlich, too deserves major credit for his help and numerous good ideas. Mention too of Collin Hubbard, our reluctant treasurer, who in addition held the difficult position of being the Council ' s vocal minority, an often times lonely job. This year an attempt was made to revitalize several Constitutional committees that were either stillborn or died in infancy. The reason for their early demise soon became apparent — there was nothing for them to do. The formerly functionless Public Relations Committee, however, has functioned this year and will be even more active in the future, participating, it is hoped, in the student portion of the reorganized U.S.C. Re- search Bulletin. The " Bulletin " will soon perform the function of a bimonthly Alumnae, faculty, and student research and news letter, something sorely needed by the school. Other things accomplished, besides giving Dr. Nerlich " Boilermaker ' s Ear " from various complaints, were to attempt to change the A.S.S.M. Constitution by deleting all mention of the ASUSC, whose approval should have been, but seldom was, gotten for any number of activities of which they had no knowledge or interest. A new student health plan prepared by Dr. Blankenhorn ' s committee awaits only the approval of the main campus in order to be put into effect. Another small item to be changed is the collection of class dues. No longer will the beleagured treasurer be forced to chase parsimonious class members over the County sand dunes crying pieously for money. We hope that starting in September dues will be made a part of the fee bill and will be paid directly into the ASSM treasury. It will then be up to your representatives on the council to apportion the monies for the annual, the new fall picnic, the Senior Farewell Dance, and to each of the classes for their own activities. Incidentally, official responsibility for the Senior dance has been given the Juniors, who so richly deserve it. The one feat that stands out in my mind above all others as the coup d ' efaf came to pass one dark, cold February morning when the cheerful face of a University Police Officer was seen to tell a county employee, " get the Hell out of the student ' s lot.

Clinical goodies were distributed to the third year class with the customary exclamations — goniometers! The new pocket size student directory was an added feature from SAMA this year. Reflecting the signs of the times, the ten dollar loan fund got a good work out. For those who found their way from the pre-parties, the Valentine ' s Day dance, co- sponsored with the medical wives (they supply the know how, SAMA the loss) was an exceptional success this year — even financially. A panel discussion and luncheon at LACMA highlighted the local program The SAMA journal and group insurance plans supplemented the local program. Representatives attending the national convention at Chicago (Chez Paree) were Goode, Smith, and Anderson. (Some one said the wives were going this year? -c .) AOA Each year. Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor society, honors those medical students who have dis- played outstanding scholarship, personal honesty, potential leadership and enthusiasm in medical learning. This year ten seniors were guests of the USC chapter at the Senior Farewell Dance where the formal awards were presented. L. to R.

DARLENE BUCKLEW The first event for the USC Medical Student Wives was something new this year ... a Sunday afternoon tea in honor of the Freshmen Wives given by the members of the Board who played " Big Sisters " . This fashionable affair was held in the home of the charming hostess, Mrs Thomas H. Brem. The many fervent questions of the Freshmen Wives were soon suppressed by Dr. Brem who spoke that after- noon. A dinner and fashion show were enjoyed at the YWCA Hospitality House in October. The fashions were by Loi ' s, and the models ... all from our own " Glamorous Group " ! Dr. Alexander Rogawski proved quite popular with the ladies when he spoke on " Comprehensive Medicine " at the Novem- ber meeting held in the lovely home of our Dean ' s wife, Mrs. Clayton Loosli. Another " first " this year was a Christmas party. The " girls " pooled cookies, sang carols, had a raffle . . . and a ball! We were guests of the Faculty Wives in January for an entertaining evening highlighted by Mrs. C. R. Vance, Fashion Coordinator, who spoke on " You and Your Color " . (We all went home and burned our clothes!) STUDENT WIVES The third annual Valentine ' s Dance, co-sponsored by SAMA, was again a huge success . . . and financially, too! (We understand that since then, the " Beachboys " have signed a contract with Papaya-Cola.) Now we ' re not just fair ladies of fashion and teas . . . many hours were spent over a great variety of philanthropic projects such as making tray favors, kimonos for the Children ' s Ward, etc. In April, the wives enjoyed the rare company of their husbands who joined them at the new medical building for films and refresh- ments by Meade-Johnson Company. And last, the senior wives were honored at a very lovely banquet at which t ime they in turn presented to the Association a farewell gift . . . a check representing funds raised in great secrecy, and in appreciation for the friendship and activities the Association offers to those " Lonely Hearts of Medical Student Wives " ! NU SIGMA NU TIBBS With both feet planted firmly in mid air, the members of Nu Sigma Nu faced the new year with apneic, tremulous excitement. Pete Mack was the new social chairman, and we all knew what that meant! We prepared the traditional gambling party by adjourning to Julie ' s. In spite of this, the affair was a tremendous success, meaning we can use the hall again next year if we put down a $10,000 deposit. Following a series of pre-, peri-, and post-pledging parties, we decided a business meeting was in order so one was scheduled for next year. In fact, if enthusiasm continues to run high, it may become an annual affair. We did man- age to hold a couple of legitimate meetings, in spite of the opposition offered by McCranie and Stanton. Dr. Nicholas Khourey gave an excellent talk on, " The Treatment of Al- coholism " , after which we all attended a local A.A. meeting and picked up four pledges. In the spring our program committee, claiming tempo- rary insanity, scheduled a joint meeting with Phi D.E. Dr. Douglas Baldridge, noted dermatologist and lecturer, spoke on " The Changing Scene in Medicine " . Following the discus- sion period lead by Waters and Wigmore, the good doctor was lead away mumbling that " medicine can ' t possibly change that much! " . The annual initiation banquet was held in May with the UCLA chapter. (Well, someone had to foot the bill!) A jolly time was had by all, and we even remembered to have the initiation ceremony. Under the able leadership of president. Bill Tibbs and treasurer. Light-fingered Ed Couburn, we man- aged to resolve most of our difficulties with the National, and put off our creditors. Thus, we now find ourselves in the unique position of enjoying economic and social security. (Excuse the dirty word.) But fear not group, it can ' t lost! I PHI RHO SIGMA SHEA Sometimes we, as busy medical students, tend to take our medical fraternities for granted — until a situation arises which makes us realize just what the fraternity actually is. In Phi Rho Sigma last year we found ourselves faced with a choice of " putting out " or " getting out " as far as our future in local medical society was concerned. It was at this point that our small group of eight active members came to realize what our fraternity is — our frate rnity is ourselves. We quietly understood that regardless of the number of eloquent parties given by many fine Alumni in our behalf, or regardless of grand oration explaining what we stood for, we simply had to sell our fellow students a " commodity " they needed — namely ourselves. Now " commodity " is defined as something useful, advantageous, or convenient and this definition certainly sums up the characteristics of a true friend- ship. Therefore, each of us armed himself with this " com- modity " and took up the battle with a genuine interest in his fellow medical student. Now, a year later, we have not only grown larger as a fraternity, but also we have grown in quality as individuals which makes our effort even more gratifying. With the un- tiring efforts and faith of Dr. Fran Guinney combined with an outstanding job of leadership and organization by Bob Shea we have enjoyed our most successful and entertaining year. The. Annual Founders Day Banquet, the wonderful Balboa Bay beach party given by Dr. Clifford Cherry, the fabulous Rush Party as guests of Dr. Griffith Barlow, the monthly scheduled dinners at local hospitals (and China- town), and even a frequent T.G.I.F. at Milt Smale ' s apart- ment have all held much more meaning for each of us since we have learned what our fraternity really stands for — the dedication of ourselves to the use of the highest medical principles in dealing with other human beings. PHI CHI CHRONISTER With the firm hand of basset-raising, parrot loving W. S. Chronister the fraternal menagerie of Phi Chi had another successful year. Being very fat with 25 pledges from the previous year. Phi Chi continued in the tradition of foster- ing good social events for the encumbered medical student. An ecumenical effort during the summer resulted in and Inter fraternity Beach Party v ith the four USC Medical fra- ternities. Dr. Barclay Noble extended us the use of his patio and pool for a barbecue party before school started. The hospitality of Dr. and Mrs. Alden Miller was felt again, and the first rush party benefited therefrom. Dr. George Lan- degger also made it a repeat performance with the use of his home for a spaghetti dinner. Phi Chi Wives ' Club helped with the rushing and had discussions on politics and preg- nancy. The long contemplated " Big Brother " program between alumni and actives became reality this year. This realization was possible only through the mutual belief of actives and alumni that a doctor ' s education must include an under- standing of his future place in the community and the lives of his patients. Officers include: Wayne S. Chronister, Presiding Senior; Albert E. Yellin, Presiding Junior; Robert A. Pedrin, Secretary; Charles Broberg, Treasurer; Billy W. Barnes, Judge Advo- cate; Richard R. Riddell, Guide; James L. Mee, Sentinel; Frederick B. Ruymann, Chapter Editor. PHI DELTA EPSILON ■iJ SHORE The Alpha Eta Chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity has enjoyed a most active and successful year. Following the interfraternity beach party held at Doheny Beach, the summer enthusiasm was maintained with a swim- ming party at the home of Dr. M. Lomas. With the beginning of school, our gala rush dinner-dance was held at Victoria Hall for the freshman, alumni and faculty. October brought the second rush party graciously hosted by Dr. A. Roger. At the October meeting Dr. D. Weinberg spoke on " Space and Space Travel. " November was highlighted by a successful ice skating and pizza party and December brought a Christmas party at the home of Dr. M. Andler. In January, the annual Phi D. E. Lectureship was given by Dr. Frederick C. Bartter, from the National Institute of Health who spoke on " Aldosterone, Hypertension and the Kidney. " In February a Valentine party was graciously hosted by Dr. M. Priver, and a Bar B Q party was planned by the wives club. At the February meeting. Dr. Marmelzat gave an enlightening talk on " An Intimate View of Russia Today " . In March, we combined forces with the UCLA Chapter for a cocktail party, following which we were guests of the Graduate Club for dancing at the Ambassador Hotel. At the March meeting held jointly with Nu Sigma Nu, Dr. D. Bald- ridge presented an excellent and enjoyable talk on " The Changing Scene in Medicine " . Later in the month the Initia- tion Dinner was held and ten new members were initiated Into Phi D. E. April was highlighted by a picnic, and a cocktail party which was graciously given at the home of Dr. L. Winer. In May a Farewell dinner-dance was held in honor of our thir- teen Graduating Seniors. The 1960-61 Officers consisted of: Consul, Ernest Shore; Vice-Counsul, Richard Lewin; Chancellor, Butch Faibaum; Scribe, Fred Lieberman; Corresponding Scribe, George Jack- son; Marshal, Richard Roger; Program Chairman, Harvey Lomas; and Historian, Neil Shepard.

" ££ you Tf7A G-0 FUNfJr " ui$a FRESHMEN As always, the freshman class commenced with the fortunate sixty-eight, (How many will remain of course is a question to debate) But it was blessed, unlike the rest, with a new building and location. And the presence of six girls in class is worth consideration. Sixty-eight eager students secretly hoping their star to steer Into the path of their ambitions in the medical career; But after the first hour of class was over the smiles were erased As a future indication of the rough-road to be faced. Anatomy is to medicine as the dollar sign is to dollars. It molds all eager pre-meds into aspiring medical scholars; The pinnacle of achievement providing the first real test Of all present hopefuls of attaining their desirable quest. In it the art of butchering is exercised with greatest of skill The only instruments required are a scalpel and a strong will. And once the morbidness and the initial revenge pass It proves to be the scape-goat of the psychotic jester class. So not too infrequently girls daintly do reach and find Deep in their labcoat pockets pieces of different kind; While in the highest of spirits, conversation ranges wide And there ' s a social gathering at every corpse ' s side. Until the fateful evenings, when panic strikes with fear. The corpse is half dissected, the practicum draws near. The terror smitten students, sweat grimly and cut away Muttering at themselves, studying on time does pay. While lectures in anatomy depart from all convention For any illustration is a maze in 3-dimension, And with no two structures are relationships quite the same — Though " all is very simple " , the professor assures (in vain). The wise sophomores soy to take good notes in class And study old exams since Anatomy is easy to pass. But Gardner is inadequate and Gray is not sufficient And to study just to pass is definitely inefficient. So pressed from every corner, the freshman is ill fated. His future is at stake — (No wonder he ' s frustrated). He reads from many books (the sophomores were just bluffing) And though he studies much, come the exam he knows nothing. Then follows the dreadful awaiting at the end of every class Whether exams are corrected and the score high enough to pass. The days were being numbered when all would end in bliss — And yet of all the other subjects, Anatomy we will ready miss. Histology is noteworthy as a marathon class Which in length of lecture hours no one can surpass. While in number of notes taken, it needn ' t the slightest fear The most prolific novelist could even attempt to draw near. In depth of subject however, it is by far notorious. And in minuteness of detail, often quite vainglorious; So the freshmen frequently wanders, awed beyond belief If it weren ' t really wiser to take up law as a relief? In the breadth of the covered scope. Histology does excell (Material seems drawn infinitely from a never-ending well) So that having once presented the well known factual observations. It proceed to inklings that bring microscopists great ejations. The climax of the struggle of pen, fingers, eyes and mind. Frequently terminates with the best tension relief of its kind, Whereupon slides are presented by an unusual expert found Whose knowledge of right and left is as vague as up and upside down. And though aptitude often fails, laughter does abide. So that three hours of lecture were surely worth the slide. And if practicals are impossible and exams ego deflating Boredom selfom exists and the topics are quite fascinating. Alertness is recommended to all with Biochemistry faced — A single blink of the eye may find all formulas erased. And a compass may be necessary and a sextant at all cost, For arrows point in every way and it ' s easy to get lost. A single glycolysis product has dozens of relations. Every chemical reaction multifold connotations. While compounds and formulas add like branches of a tree; So to end the ECA cycle is like reaching infinity. And starvation would be wiser than a retentive memory. Were there a sure known way of absconding ATP. Oh what a feeling of relief, were we really done. But remaining in biochemistry, the worse is yet to come. The paragon of the twentieth century is the class Psychiatry Whose sole concern is the relief of tension and anxiety. While in purpose it has been designed naive freshmen to impress That to lead a normal life means to be by sex obsessed. The subject matter is animated and bluntly picturesque. While to hear the periods one goes through is really quite grotesque; So two hours for lecture were set aside by the department ' s own volition. Lest students respond to drastically from over imbibition. On every other Thursday, for which we alternate. We proceed to John Wesley, our egos to inflate. For like authentic doctors (how the poor patients we must vex) We discuss all problems from alcohol to sex. And in the brief intermission before we aggregate With our designated leaders our experiences to relate.

Front: Williams, Wittesch, Zlatnlck Back: Wilson, Woerner To extend the narration into the second semester will be more difficult — principally because the author is not a soothsayer, and secondly because her poetic inspiration is failing. One can meet neuranatomy at eight on Monday and Friday in two alternative manners: either with the enthusi- asm of being challenged by an impossible quest or with the desire to have seen the human brain permanently staunched at the fish level of the phylogenetic tree. Generally, how- ever, the latter feeling overcomes the former, especially when one is faced with the complex mass of tracts, nuclei, pathways etc. which on cord X-section slides are sufficiently homogenized into an obscure mass to cause a lesion in every student ' s memory. Biochemistry lecture verified the author ' s prediction that the wo rse was to come. It is with dreadful anticipation that one awaits the revelation of board after board of scrawled hierogliphics, (otherwise known as formulas), which demon- strates from all facets that the intricacies of Biochemistry were never designed to elucidate the average medical stu- dent. To compensate for the lecture and to prevent the de- partment from having a guilty conscience, a laboratory course was established, in which a student needs to be profficient in only three respects: to be able to read and obey instructions without questioning, to be skilled in removing fluid from a beaker with a pipette and pouring it into a testube, and to be adept in using the Klett. But the dearest remembrances of lab will be those occasions when the professor addresses the dignified freshmen as " now listen children. " There is no department more concerned with the student ' s well being than Physiology, which has attempted to allev iate the tension and frustration one experiences while awaiting for the results of exams by revolutionizing the grading sys- tem and having a checkmark or a review be on indicatory measure of progress. (In the meantime one dwells in dis- illusionment and is shocked to find himself failing at the end of the semester by a checkmark.) Besides excelling as the class in which experiments invariably work out when no one is looking. Physiology specializes in confronting students with such dramatic facts as the marvellously balanced and regu- lated systems of the hemo sapiens can be reduced to nothing but a bag of salt water. There is much more to tell, but for fear of arousing the wrath of the editor-in-chief by exceeding the allotted space in the annual for the freshmen, the author is forced to conclude. Those characteristics that make up a freshman class: the fresh greeness of inexperience, the carefree laughter, the foolish pranks, the enthusiasm in being challenged — event- ually will dissipate with time, but as for now, they merge into making the freshman year one of the most enjoyable and unforgettable moments in every medical student ' s life. Borina Dramov SOPHOMORES After the decades filled with the promise of " next year, the new school, " next year has finally arrived. The didactic is joined with the clinical — about a leaking reflection pool. With the handing out of first semester schedules, the brill- ance of new faculty member was quite apparent. Most of the courses were under the tutelage of McKibbon. McKibbon turned out to be a building which changes its name to Mudd in the vicinity to the elevators. These three verticle shafts still offer memories to many, of scenic rides to the sixth floor with milk stops on the way. The new building is provided with desks for study, lockers for books and microscope, but lacks the needed felt-topped tables for card playing. Within this new edifice is a scientific marvel of engineering genius — air conditioning. With a cer- tain mechanical uncanniness, warm air was spewed out in September and, with the advent of blustry October, the auditorium became a testing ground for Artie explorers. However the building was erected with the thought of teaching and there were, of necessity, classes. " Rotate the workers " and paint all things red " dangerous " were found to be the keys in solving the Public Health Menace. The insidious advance of psychiatry into all phases of medicine was felt here too, where the psychoanalysis of chairs was the problem for more than one morning. Psychiatry had a charm all of its own — somewhat that of a slightly disreputable quiz program with its weekly " We haven ' t met before this morning, have we? " . Punctuality and musical microphones (try mine) were but brief touches of humor as we sought to fathom the mind and behavior pat- terns. Unfortunately, too many of us found short terse de- scriptions of ourselves in the handouts. From the proper mode of serum sterilization to an esoteric disease of children in a Brooklyn hospital, ran the subject matter of Microbiology. In this course, that was taught as much in the.halls as in the lecture room, the examination was truely a portion of the teaching program. In the great post- test debates, answers to disputed questions were supported with fanatical zeal. The mundane desire for additional points was lost as many a half-forgotten reference or dust-covered text provided additional ammunition for the fray. Pathology was devoted to the differentiation of diseases characterized by fever, chills, rash, and malaise from those whose major clinical picture was malaise, rash, fever, and chills. These of course, had to be kept separate from those diseases which present a pattern of chills, malaise, rash, and fever. Pathology was a segregated course with the students in laboratory and the faculty in the coffee shop. The ex- aminations, also, were a learning experience, with many students seeing Aschoff nodules, for the first time, in the syphilitic aneurysm. Written questions probed the hidden recesses of medical knowledge: " List skin appendages, " Dis- cuss the clinical and pathological manifestations of Upper New South Wales Shaggy Sheep Disease in dogs. " L. to R. Bottom: Hinshaw, Grayson Top: Gerberg, Hodosh, Dodds The lack of blueprints for the 1903 Klett proved to be a serious disadvantage in the Laboratory Diagnosis course. It was soon found that a perfect knowledge of the percentages of cells found in bone marrow studies of white males was inadequate for answering those questions based on oriental female infants. The importance of the relative diameter of Klett and Lee-White tubes could not be emphasized enough in the dorkened lecture room. Here at last, however, was a course that minimized understanding and asked that it be replaced with rote memory. Physical Diagnosis is the type of program that one thinks of immediately when one thinks of medical school. This was a course that we had all expected and, expecting, enjoyed. From the hours of didactics to practical application in the wards, we at last found a reason for our basic science courses. Here was the course that unified our curriculum and gave it a working value. With the start of the second semester, the warm clear days cried out for some of the free time that was so plentiful during the first months. " Where to now? " could with equanimity and assurance usually be answered by " Pharmacology lecture " . The ex- travagance of lecture time devoted to the uses of drugs and the body responses was matched solely by the capable staff. In those short hours when there were no pharmacology lectures there was lunch and a raft of survey and orientation lectures. Here it was learned that bacteria did other things than grow on agar plates in Microbiology. Murmurs and thrills and heaves could form a pattern of a pathology which was readily identifiable — especially if one had many years of experience. Now, as the last of the basic science years closed, we look across the street toward those years devoted mainly to the clinical, a little more aware of what we don ' t know than of what we do. We are able to appreciate that medicine is not taught in books or lectures, only individual courses are. Medicine is, perhaps, the synthesis of what we learn and of what we reason. It becomes more of an art and less of a science. MYRA FEFFER PHILIP CITRON L. to R. Bottom: Klausner, Lenser, Lipton, Ennis Top: Kunsmon, Karz, Kurlond, Ling L. to R.

And so it came to pass that Kuzma led the slaves into the land of reality — a water pipe with chipped paint over- lying on autopsy table. Then He spoke unto us and said, " How think you? " And we were impressed but He was de- pressed and promptly summoned a CME student. Here we found ourselves viewing the almost futility of medicine with virgin eyes. Stuffed with knowledge, full of ideas, and with a keen sense of awareness we were still not sure just where a med-student could empty his bladder. Yes, we had arrived, the time had come for a verbal enema. Our chief complaint was intellectual constipation and disuse atrophy of two years duration. The present illness began on the sabbath with Psychiatry — like a cooly calcu- lated pruritis. Again, we were knee deep in words and ges- tures attempting to defend and justify a place for medicine in Psychiatry. After disposing of our shoes and socks we proceeded to engage in that stimulating art of listening. Shortly thereafter, a constantly aggravating, gnawing pain developed over the posterior cervical region accompanied by ringing in the ears and incessant tenesmus. It appeared that relief could only be obtained by coming very late to lectures, if at all. This soon became the norm and nothing short of the threat of retaliatory, total annihilation seemed to remedy the situation. Thus, the lecture hall became the community center; a place to dwell in idle thought and sleep if need be, to sit with cigarette and coffee and scrutinize the daily propaganda, and best of all, to gaze, awe inspired, at man ' s God-like creation — the minute hand. To be sure, none of us were quite as comfortable as was Dr. Hammond. Nevertheless, the reality of medicine was upon us and we learned many things. We found that adequate insurance coverage is prerequisite to honesty, that the Gestalt of a thyroid nodule is a piece of paper with arrows in every di- rection, that it ' s Gin-ecology not Gynecology, that a felon is a dire emergency which requires a 27 Blather-Budwiser uranium suture, and that regional surgeons are spreading out all over. It was easy to see that the Dermatologists were like hanging loose, the Proctologists knew which end was up, and the ENT people were endorsing the ingredients and buying stock in Kleenex. By the way, was it the Urologist who said, " The only surgery an Obstetrician can do well is first to tie off the left ureter and then tie off the right one? " Finally, for the believers there were Bible reading sessions in Opthalmology, positive thinking seminars in Cancer Orien- tation, and a sky-watching hour with the surgeons. Yet, despite the fact that these lectures provided a recep- tacle for oral wastage, we managed to become oriented in general medicine. However, the time had come to correlate specific statistics, observations, and experiences covering all of medicine in a homey atmosphere — fondly referred to as Survey. Here, the young and the old clustered together in an effort to overwhelm those of us who, insecure in our com- pulsive attempts to become competent physicians, were prone to acute anxiety attacks. It truly was the greatest show on earth. From the outset it was Dr. Reynolds against the human race — and he won. Weighting his opponents down with loaded questions and a slide projector, which parenthetically provoked Dr. Biegelman ' s first episode of exertional dyspnea, he succeeded in clearing the room of its antiquated miscon- ceptions. We must never forget how he revealed the scandal in Dr. Edmondson ' s past in his lecture on the causes of pyelonephritis. Or the time he defined Discuss as meaning to Diagram. But, then there was Dr. Martin, Dr. Nelson, and Dr. Friedman, to mention but a few, whose broad based swipes at the core of disease re-instituted our interest in medicine. Of course, there were those who failed to speak our. language, but we got retribution. Yes sir, we didn ' t answer their exam questions. We cannot forget how, in an effort to destroy our hero. Dr. Barbour and Dr. Peters con- spired and contrived a unique torture session known sadly as the " Hate Dr. Brem Hour " . Here, we entered a void where idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis secondary to metastisiz- ing angiosarcoma of the left auricular appendage had to be ruled out. And, though CPCmanship never swayed, even though they had the last laugh, we knew down deep that it was for the sake of curiosity, or was it Korsakoff ' s? Finally, in dispensing with the didactic we must never fail to mention JUNIORS those valueless and intimate hours spent with our beloved, respected ideal Cardiac whose Valsalva never swerved while he was thinking in international units. He will never be replaced, maybe by that guy, who with a smile on his face and fibrosis in his marrow used to say, " Why sure, a calcification. " The philosophers among us were jolted by the practical side of medicine and put to shame any who believed that Man wasn ' t expendable. Frustrations mounted as we wan- dered about the wards in search of the answer. Soon the book on 7600 began to look like a Who ' s Who of Crockery and a decision always had to be made as to just what con- stituted a good patient. To the student, the admitting ward was the epitomy of inefficiency, to the patient it was a lousy hotel, and to the ward personnel it represented a sort of sadistic security. To the interns and residents it represented a challenge; namely, who could send the patients home the fastest. But then came those infinite downs with writers cramp and cranial nerves intact. With no exostoses, no lid lag, and the history and physical essentially negative. Serious prob- lems arose, e.g., the wiggle in the EKG tracing, deferred pelvics, and no stool in the ampulla. And you ' ve got to remove the tourniquet before injecting the Decolin, or, I wanted an LP not an aortogram. Remember the times when feces fell from heaven and you forgot to do an occult blood, and you failed to get a serum porcelin on your crock and when you did you forgot to put the stamps on. And veni-punctures were for kids. How many cisternal tops did you do? Can ' t you picture your first presentation when you discovered that your stethescope wasn ' t plugged in, that the history varies from time to time, and that it wasn ' t fetor hepaticus — it was fetor tuberculosis. Of course there was always Dr. Reynolds who singed your eyebrows off when you overlooked the nursing notes in the old chart, and Dr. Manning who kept saying, " And what else? " in your differ- ential diagnosis, or perhaps it was when Dr. Schwartz turned pale when you informed him that you hod just lost your taste for cigarettes. And then there was Dr. Petit who dan- gird his feet from the clouds along with Dr. Barbour who just kept smiling and nodding his head. Let us not forget Drs. Tranquada and Ives who, like frustrated censors, edited our writeups or Drs. Balchum and Barrows who, like dedi- cated teachers, managed to get the point across. Unfortun- ately, there was always grand rounds featuring flapping jaws and backslapping with knives. Wonders never ceased as we emmigrated from camp to camp. In Pathology, it was Dr. Kuzma walking on the water and Dr. Peters walking on the rocks, both licking their lips as the spatula smoothed away the juices. With tender, loving care on Diabetes we learned how urine is good for your hands, and on Pediatrics we sow how the SPCA had failed. We recall much about chest medicine, but nothing like the time Dr. Sills wet his pants when you mentioned bubonic plague. And in Unit 3, remember wondering who ' s got the key, and on Neurology it really didn ' t matter anymore. There were some humorous incidents also. Believe me, some of us cracked up, like the guy who ripped his trunk open with a crowbar, and like it couldn ' t happen to you but it did, and you failed to turn your tape recorder on. And we had our quarrels about Nixon vs. Kennedy, better known as should we have socialized medicine. Well, we left it up to the rest of the people to decide for a change. In retrospect, we have to admit to a very rewarding year. Especially for those who were fortunate enough to get a share of the Student Health profits. In all seriousness, we wish the administration of the School of Medicine the best of luck in the future, because I don ' t think any of us are coming back again next year. And by the way, I think it was a guy named Lopez who spilled coffee all over the new lecture hall floor. Harvey Lomas Humphreys, 1, Schiffman Lu-Meng, Budni Bloom, ck. Bailor jberman.

Medicine is a profession which affords its disciples great opportunity for a productive, active and zestful life. As a member of the graduating class, you will soon be in a position to take full advantage of this sublime opportunity. With such prospects, why is there need for a message to the graduating class? It is perhaps, that experience shows some individuals allow the exciting challenge to pass them by. While there is no simple formula for the achievement of zestful, vigorous, productive activity in your medical life, certain principles apply. To begin with, you and only you can be responsible for your activities. Therefore, the first responsi- bility to yourself is to set your own goals. After careful, unhurried study and contemplation, you may begin to realize the desires, small and great, which guide your life and will guide you in your pro- fession. The first step is important because it places emphasis on what you want to do in life. It is un- doubtedly true that unhappiness, through failure to acquire a sense of achievement in medicine, is almost never due to lack of ability to achieve. The real cause of failure to achieve is that the phy- sician has not properly analyzed his aspirations or established his goals. This is the stumbling block. You can achieve essentially what you wish, but first you must know what it is that you wish. The next principal to fully appreciate is that zeal and enthusiasm can be maintained only by an active approach. The passive approach which seeks to avoid responsibility guarantees boredom and dissatisfaction. A dreary existence results. Yet actively attacking problems that you have set for your- self leads to a self investment that is almost always associated with zeal and enthusiasm. You have undoubtedly encountered individuals engaged in the practice of medicine who posses no ardor for their work. These joyless persons rarely learn more than is told to them; hence, rarely learn much after graduation. The thrill of discovery and understanding seems to escape them. They appear to be clockwatching for retirement. Perhaps only in retirement do they visualize, too late, what satisfaction a vigorous, active approach to medicine could have given them. You hove been told many times during your school days that you must develop habits of self teaching which continue day by day throughout your life. You have been told that a graduation, your education is not ending but is just beginning. With these statements, no one would argue. Yet there are few persons who are able to develop and maintain persistent study habits unless they hove ac- quired an active approach to exploration, discovery, and understanding in their everyday work. The passive, dutiful approach destroys the fun of achievement, and without the fun, the habits of self learning fade away. Therefore, your ability to experience zeal in your work depends first upon your ability to set your own goals. Next, self investment as an active, rather than passive, participant in your everyday work heightens interest and enthusiasm. The patients of a physician with this type of approach ore almost certain to obtain fine medical care as well as inspiration to aid them in their own living. Unfortunately, there are road blocks that might inhibit your zeal in your work and continued self education. Perhaps the biggest rood block will be problems within yourself that have been developed through years of parental direction and direction from your teachers in school. There have always been significant persons who have told you what to do. Some direction was necessary and you un- doubtedly benefited from it. You could not expect to start from scratch and personally prove all that hod been discovered since cave-man days. You also had to learn the cooperation that civilization demands. But it is fair to say that direction hod disadvantages as well as advantages. Frequently, per- sons who have been over taught and over directed develop resistance to learning and work. They associate learning and understanding with unpleasant supervision. Development and intellectual growth, in this situation, become most difficult unless one begins to understand his resistance. Another road block to zeal in your work may be unreasonable demands on your time. Great de- mands on your time could lead to a routine, unimaginative approach in which you will not be doing your best; hence, your sense of accomplishment could be diminished. This is not to imply that you may expect your existence to be free from humdrum tasks. These are your responsibilities, too. Nevertheless, you must remain on guard to be certain that your approach to life and your profession does not be- come humdrum. No day is complete without a portion, be it ever so small, of leisure time — a time spent as you wish it to be. Significant work is almost never done by people without leisure. The in- dividual who boasts that he is so busy that he has no time for leisure, deserves our pity, but surely not our respect. For some, the practice of medicine will impose a third rood block to zeal. Many patients coming to you for help will be ill partially or largely because of problems with interpersonal relationships. Often these patients will help create problems which will make your professional interpersonal dealings with them difficult and unpleasant. In these situations only a true understanding of your reactions and the reac- tions of the patient will keep you in a frame of mind in which you can properly render care. Now at the end of your formal medical school training, you should know that your faculty is proud of you and wishes you well. The fulfillment of your productive goals by your own productive efforts will give us vicarious pleasure. In each graduate we have confidence. We shall always be available, not to tell you what to do, but to be of help in any way possible. Phil R. Manning, M.D. SENIORS L. to R. Tibbs, Schreiner, Stanton, Shea, Arthur, Smole, Campbell, Gregory, Peterson. " Terrified, but at last in medical school, " should be the motto of our first year. The year was prefaced by an orien- tation lecture on something or other by the emminent Dr. Stainbrook (the most foul-mouthed boy in the neighborhood, now the most full-mouthed). I think he told us how to make one big triangle out of three little ones, but I don ' t recall why we should want to. Pulok, convinced that he wasn ' t speaking English, spent the following three days reading his English-Indian Dictionary. To our horror, however, only too clearly did we under- stand the sickening words of Dr. Patek on that first day when he informed us that our friends were waiting in the next room. When told that we were to grease and wrap the hands, feet, and heads of our deceased friends, our first impulse was really a fleeting one. That is, " Let ' s get the hell out of here. " In fact, one member did, which explains the odd number of 67. Pops may graduate anyway though; his name is still being called at roll. The rest of us, taking firm hold of ourselves (a hand placed firmly over the mouth) en- tered into the spirit of the occasion just as if we had been playing with dead things all of our lives. Stomachs slowly settled to normal and we energetically dug into the " meat " of the thing. Christenson, surgeon and cow anatomist par excellence, made himself known immediately for his persist- ent advice as to the way it was done on the horse, or con- tinual referenecs to " the way I did it in surgery. " One student obviously terrified at Dr. Patek ' s constant admonition that only clean lab coats wer e to be worn, wouldn ' t even wear a shirt. Anatomy was slowly mastered; McCormick made the discovery of the year by isolating the Laryngeal- penial nerve; Suits and the campus police discovered a new midnight entrance to room 369; and kudos go to Oscar for having spent a total of 3 hours in the study of anatomy. The mneumonic device was used to its limits; we now remember no anatomy, but we all have a good repartee of dirty rhymes. The study of Physiology is a, well a, if a, one a, takes a , piece of a, x ray a, film a, and a cuts a, the urn a, a distal a end a, so as a, to a form a point a Well, physiology isn ' t really a course in arrow making or Indian Lore. It ' s really a course in the extermination of turtles, farm anirnois, and household pets. Who will ever forget the lectures by Dr. Drury who has been known to lecture for better than an hour without saying a single word; or the not only interest- ing but flavored oratory of Dr. Meehan. Many challenges were afforded by physiology, and some were issued, such as, " ' If you put that God-damned stuff in my ear again, I ' ll break your neck. " Or, " Keep your hand in that bucket or we ' ll dump it on you. " To keep us on our toes we were " offered " snap quizzes and unscheduled hour exams. A typical exam question would be: If a 200 lb. midget after riding 3 miles up hil lost 194 lbs., what would be the quan- tity of NaCI that dripped on the rear tire? A certain in- structor staring condescendingly through his hyertensive retinopathy and coke-bottle bottom lenses informed us re- peatedly that all we had to know to pass physiology wa s everything. All the while the threat of the gastric tube hung heavily over our heads. All was not trauma, however; Bob Futoran provided enjoyment for all with his choreographic interpretation of the pathological Rhomberg at the Phi Delta Epsilon rush party; amazing to all, he became a member of that fraternity. Also in physiology we got our first taste of surgery, and Allen discovered the use of the panic button when he cut the carotid artery in the controlled hemorrhage experiment which suddenly became uncontrolled. SENIORS Biochemistry, taught (?) by Dr. Trojanility Saltman, was an osterized world of esoteric-entropic-teleologic-ose. This is where a bunch of little enzymes, all doing little things, which when put together and salted lightly with buggerup-ase can ' t even defy the hydrostatic pressure of a fire hose. We learned that Michealis-Mentan isn ' t an after dinner drink, although Tibbs and Suits were willing to try, but that it is very important to enzymes, because, well, it ' s their way of doing it. Al Lasnover, with an otherwise clean slate, was reprimanded 1000 times by Dr. Saltman with a single jesture and 4 small words. Actually, Dr. Saltman ' s lectures were informal, interesting, and unimportant. In his delightful manner he managed to keep most of us awake (except for Bubien, but then everyone failed there, too) with frequent, humorous analogies in a language that even Colburn could understand. This course found us with notebooks and cards crammed full of strange structures. Before the year was half over Cooper had used 30 notebooks, and Milton was on his third roll of butcher paper. Dr. Saltman ' s ego became ir- reparably damaged by the restrictions of the " thesbian life " and toward the end of the year, he became hopelessly addicted to LSD. This became apparent to all when the Biochem final was given. The exam itself was a schizophrenic delight, but to turn it in one had to place it in the properly numbered envelope, seal it, and stack it thusly in a ritual decipherable only by a derranged mind. Cellular Structure and Function was really histology just like in other schools. The lectures were well prepared, short (less than 5 hours), and appropriately placed after lunch. With full bellies and a supressed gastro-colic reflex, we at- tempted frantically to keep pace with " Bubbles " . Over the scratch of many flying pens could be heard the gentle snoring of John Bubien. As the year wore on, the class shifted from ssats near the door to those by the windows. From this vantage point one could invariably see the relaxed figures of Herman and Blanchette lying on the grass 3 stories below. After all, Ron had lost his elevator key, and Steve wouldn ' t desert a friend. Aside from long lab periods spent in the coffee shop listening to the peaceful strands of " Tequila " , Schreiner developed a fondness for cigars, Abrams devised plans for doing away with a certain instructor, and once in a while microscopes were brought out and dusted off. Dr. Birr Yang took us beyond the cellular level. Here he taught us some of the characteristics of what went on inside the cell, as well as a neat way to get rid of 2000 tons of guinea pigs. Entertainment was provided by the erudite questions asked by Graham and Allen. Two refugees, one from the Irish Rebellion and the other from the Spanish Revolution, had somehow gotten jobs with the anatomy department and ended up teaching, " You guys have got to know this stuff Neuroanatomy. " With one of Cajal ' s smashed microscopes in Dr. Santisteban ' s hand, and a shillalah in Dr. Flanagan ' s, they rode herd on the confused 67 down the nervous pathways. The nervous sys- tem was shown to simply be a mixture of interwoven line of various colors on the blackboard, and a few hundred thou- sand fly-specks on the slides. Heretofore, Ravenna had thought that the diencephalon was a Catholic home for the mentally retarded, and Allen still thinks that the Mammillo-thalamic tract is a place where the Mexican dog races are held. All that need be said about Physical Diagnosis is that most of us are still mad at not being allowed to be in the group with Courington, Suits, and Schreiner. And so went the first year. Z . In September the comic relief returned; battle-hardened veterans of the freshman year, armed to the teeth with hemoglobinometers, 1 compound microscope with oil im- mersion objective and mechanical stage, 1 pair of medium forceps, 1 box of cover slips (no. 2, 18 mm), 1 red wax pencil for writing on glass, 1 towel for drying glassware, 1 box microscope slides, condescending airs and a various assort- ment of umm humms and head nods for appropriate occa- sions. It was the vogue to place our stethescopes in our pockets in such a way that the maximum length of tubing dangled out so that all would know our calling. The theme of this year might well hove been " Don ' t read it; just copy it down. " This is well illustrated by Bob Futoran ' s monumental achievement of copying down the final exam of a Physics class that proceeded Clinical Path. Also I ' m sure half the class has buried somewhere deep in their path notes a detaihd map of the Monrovia hills. Dr. Clelland ' s home, and how much of the area was destroyed by fire. Micro B led us into a strange world of bugs, germs, mut- ants, phage, and Dr. Gordon. In lab we learned the right way to kill rats, the wrong way to kill rats, and several inadvertant ways of killing rats. We also learned why not to boil scissors, how to give chicken eggs the flu, to put Hepatitis Harvey to the end of the line when receiving Tuberculin skin tests, and how to flunk Dr. Gordon ' s exams. A typical exam answer might have been: (1) a, (2) b, (3) a and b, (4) c and d, (5) a and d, (6) a, b, and c might be true but probably isn ' t because of sexual incompatability of Tl and T3 mentioned in question 3, (7) Tl and T3 don ' t have sex problems, (8) everybody is impotent except you and me, and I ' m not so sure about you. Danny Cooper became so engrossed in his work that he repeatedly shar- pened his mechanical pencil in the pencil sharpener. One day he was actually seen to walk straight into a wall and continue uncertainly down the hall. One member of our class made history with his modification of the Ziehl-Neilson technique of staining. He placed the bunsen burner directly under the slide for a full 10 minutes. The slide burned fine. The room burned fine too. The rest of the building only burned " pretty good. " SENIORS S O EMPUUE , MRORE GO HOME IN THREE MINUTES I " Clinical path was chucked full of all sorts of practical goodies: the use of the bell shaped curve in the measurement of bells, the diameter of a Lee White tube, that we shouldn ' t drink the cyanmethemoglobin diluent but if we did it prob- ably wouldn ' t kill us unless some idiot made a mistake in making it and put too much cyanide in it, the real meaning of dry-labbing, sophistication in the technique of producing hematomas, and the technique of bone marrow punctures for fun and profit. Path lab offered many opportunities to take out our hostilities and aggressions on rats. Several batches were irradiated and the observation was made that all their hair fell out. One of the batches consisted of Hall, Jones, Colburn, Reed, and Firestone. In Pharmacology we had the distinction of being one of the last classes to take the course before pad locks were put on the latrine doors. We were taught the art of writing illegible prescriptions, and here again Danny Cooper ex- celled. Larry Bolick was observed to take his only notes in Medical School during the lecture on aphrodesiacs. Experi- ments were conducted using various drugs such as alcohol, spirits fermenti. Vodka, booze, and hooch. The potentiating effects of orange juice were also observed. Although our schedule kept us pretty busy. Tumor Path afforded us an opportunity to relax, sleep, and to go to the beach. Oscar and Phil were even allowed to ploy Bridge during class. With our ranks depleted after 2 years mental and moral deterioration, the onset of the junior year found our class once again restored to full force. Heretofore, peaceful chaos had reigned supreme; however, under the firm hand of Joan Otto (one of the new transfer students, whose husband also goes to school, I think) order was restored. As 3rd year students, we were to be found scattered in small groups throughout LACGH. Medicine comprised the greatest part of the 3rd year. And it was on this service that we learned the management of the " Acute fulminating placement problem, " as well as the use of abreviations such as; SOB, ASHD, PND, and PPP, PPT. Our case write-ups were things of sheer literary genius, and consist.:d of 7-15 pages of pertinent negatives. This includes such things as; no hang nails, no warts, and no spermatocele. The write-ups were, however, on essential port of the cose workup. It wasn ' t as if anyone would read them, but how else would the charts get so thick? Many valuable lessons were learned on the Medical service. These included the art of recording EKGs, measuring venous pressures and circ times, gagging patients with gastric tubes, making D.T. patients jump in horror by pointing to immaginary spiders crawling across their beds, and the art of infiltrating IVs. Pulak loorned why one shouldn ' t lay across the legs of a patient undergoing a gastric lavage. The patient vomited suddenly with the tube aimed inadvertently at Pulak. It hit him with all the force of a musket ball right smack in the side of the head. A gentle " Oh s....t " was all that was heard as he looked up with all sorts of things dangling from his glasses. One of the high points of the Diabetic service occurred when a patient was being presented to one of the senior female members of the house staff. She was bent over, busily engaged in scrutinizing a typical example of diabetic retinopathy when a blind patient in the next bed reached for his water bottle. He overshot his mark and found instead the generous posterior quarters of her nibs. Puzzled by what he had found, he explored all quadrants with a series of gentle pots. Her head bobbed up and down rhythmically. His hand suddenly slipped off and found the water bottle. A split second later, she straightened up, raised her cane and swung around in exasperation to face the culprit, and there stood Bob Jones, grinning like a Cheshire cat. Nothing was said, but there was communication — on her part. Housed in the CD building (where no CD patients are admitted) the Pediatrics service was spent under the guiding hands of Dr. Indenbaum. Under his firm direction we were exposed (literally ' to such things as Measles, Mumps, Chicken- pox, etc. And in his concise, lucid manner he taught us his own unique brand of fluid and electrolytes. Ample time was provided for the reading assignments; maybe we should have read them. This proved to be Mike O ' Brien ' s favorite service, and Mike proved to be Dr. Indenbaum ' s favorite student. " On admitting nights the technique of doing un- successful L.P.s on small moving targets was mastered, while the rest of the night was spent in the well equipped lab doing scut work for the residents. Dr. Hodgman directed the newborn service as well as illustrating the effects of postural hypotension to all who doubted that women ore stronger than men. The Psych and Path services proved to be 8 weeks of a relatively relaxed atmosphere in an otherwise hectic year. The path staff under the direction of Dr. " Brownie " allowed us to " run " all the bowels we wanted. And Dr. Kuzmo convinced all that it ' s better to be obscure than " Professors. " In Psych we all became deciples of the Morgan Principles; while Dr. Rogawski analyzed us more than we analyzed the patients. " DID you EtrciT AMY R£ OU fO T£ VD£R £5S " r. ¥v«» iAL ' iu iM vi»i oaj SENIORS On the didactic side Dirty Dave Balderdash ' s lectures, suppiimented by pearls of wisdom from Mickey Rooney and the Whittier Flash, provided us with the essentials of skin diseases. These lectures were attended by everybody except Suits, Schreiner, and Courington. The whole subject was neatly condensed into one question and one answer: " What ' s that? I don ' t know! " Treatment of skin diseases was greatly simplified: " If it ' s wet, dry it; if it ' s dry, wet it. If you don ' t know what the hell it is, tell them to buy a convertable and send them to the beach. It won ' t help the disease, but the kids will love you. " And then there ' s the Zimmerman reflex In Survey of Disease Gene Manzer, wearing Stanford Red, pointsd out clearly to all that one doesn ' t have to be a mathematical genius to calculate fluid and electrolytes as long as the kidneys are working. Dr. Reynolds covered dis- eases of the liver so completely that nothing was left to be desired. He even had a slide of a familiar young, pre- cirrhotic, alcoholic bending his elbow in a sidewalk cafe. T ' was in this course that we learned the " bread and butter " value of the " acute remunerative cholecystectomy; " and that diabetics, as well as everyone else, have glucose toler- ance curves. Surgery Set Clinic taught us that Friday after- noons might be better spent at the beach and that McCranie hadn ' t really benefitted from his past 7 years of education. Graft is everywhere as we discovered from the " fixed " cases in Differential Diagnosis; that is, fixed for certain guest speakers. Jenkins still hasn ' t figured out which is better, -|--j- -[--(- or a " very excellent remarkable. " Oh well, we wouldn ' t have to put up with this course as seniors! With our last free summer over, we were finally, after an interminable length of time. Seniors! However, much to our dismay we still hadn ' t seen the last of " Differential Diagnosis. " At least the lucky juniors had. Aside from these Friday afternoons, we found that to the complexities of medicial education had been added the difficult task of deciphering clerkship schedules. This proved to be the hardest task of the 4th year. While the Peterson, et al., group re- lentlessly strove to account for every minute of the schedule, most of us spent the days drinking coffee in the forbidden Employee ' s Cafeteria; Howard Otto just gave up in con- sternation and stayed home. OB-GYN was a world of BOAs, Kielland and Simpson for- ceps, unsuccessful pudendal blocks, 15 second scrubs, fourth degree tears, passing the buck to the relieving crew, phan- tom applications, " Oh Laudy, Laudy, Yi Yi Yi, " the slippery elm and the delight of discovering the uppermost layer of the pubococcygeus. Oft heard remarks included; " What d ' yo mean 59.9% effaced? " , " I can ' t pee now because I was castrasized downstairs. " , " fireballs of the womb. " , " I had congenial syphilis oncst. " , " I ' ve been ignemic all my life. " , " Everytime I menistrate I get clogs in my vagiba. " , " How can I be? I ' m not even married yet. " It was here that Manzer discovered a new Pitocin method of birth control. There is general agreement that the high point of the year was NEURORTHOUROLOGY. The ortho residents seemed to take particular delight in assigning patients almost com- pletely encased in plaster which made physical examination difficult if not impossible. One enterprising individual talked to an empty body cast with a double hip spica for three hours trying to get a history. It wasn ' t until he tried to do the physical that he discovered that the patient had been dis- charged the day before. Many of the beds harbored bearded old men (and women) hopelessly entangled in a meshwork of wires, pulleys, ropes and braces looking like beat spiders spinning crazy mixed-up webs. One of our chores was to figure out why these things worked, what they were called, and how to get the patient out of them at time of discharge. Who can forget the Russell ' s traction with the H-P suspension supported by an Abernathy frame on a Flotz brace with 5 lb. weights on the eccentric flobab on the scramplate on an adjoining Anderssn-Sland rsen-Hendarsen-McGarnagie support on an attached Glatzalouheimer bridge? — me, that ' s who!

In Urology we found out how easy it was to make old men howl with a simple flick of the cystoscope. Sometimes anesthesia was used. We listened in awe to the wisdom of myriads of great white fathers. We learned that even filli- forms had their followers. A stone basket, we found, was a delightful doo-dad designed specifically for pulling mucosa off of ureters. There were ample opportunities to use the cystoscope to take prying peaks into the bladder — usually after they were full of methylene blue. In Neurology the position a neurologist holds in the peck- ing order is indicated by the size of his tuning fork. Know anybody who wants to buy a 2048 tuning fork? Entertain- ment was provided by watching the residents apply Crutch- field tongs. They pulled one patient out of bed three times. About the only thing constructive that was done on the service was to leave it at the end of the four weeks. The senior Pediatric service was a horse of a different color. Yellow-green with mucus globs. The service was nice for several reasons; we were away from the " gray dungeon, " coffee in Childrens Hospital cafeteria was free, and every- one called us doctor. Speaking of calling people Dr. This only added to Harvey ' s paranoid delusions. It seems that when they called his name over the PA system at Childrens, people immediately started evacuating the building. Fire- stone is the code word for fire. Never to be forgotten was the three weeks spent on the clinic service; for this was the domain of Adolf Propp, supreme ruler and friend of man (but not medical students). The instruction at Childrens was excellent, and the schedule was filled with many conferences. The X-ray conference was especially liked; they turned the lights off and it was much easier to sleep. The instructors were very liberal on this service and the atmosphere was generally relaxed; Herman and Phil were even allowed to do advanced study in pediatrics on the " Con tinent. " OPD provided us with a practical knowledge of the general practice of medicine. Half of the class again left LACGH for this nine week service, while the less fortunate half roamed the 2nd floor of " the Rock. " The patients seen were of all shapes and sizes, and presented a multiplicity of problems; that is, " I don ' t care if you do say it ' s all in my head Doc, I got pains. " Here again we had many con- ferences and seminars- however, this time the instructors beat us at our own game. They were the ones who didn ' t show up. All in all it was a good service, and I have only one question. What is the brand name of OPD 139? Surgery proved to all that muscle fatigue is a real entity; especially to those of us who are less deft as switching the " idiot stick " from hand to hand and remaining out of the field. It also proved to many of us that they con make you admit on Saturday. Again the problems of fluids and elec- trolytes were presented to us. And you know what, they are still a problem! At this point it now seems appropriate that we end this rambling, disjointed discussion We have purposefully written it in a satirical vein for humors sake; but in spite of the satire we are deeply grateful to our faculty, who, true to the oath of Hippocrates, have unselfishly devoted their time and talents in helping us make the transition from laity to practicioners of medicine. With the complexities of medical education such as they are, it goes without saying that our knowledge at this point is small. Parenthetically, this means that we have obligated the remainder of our lives to the task of expanding upon this meager knowledge. Ws now, eagerly, but humbly advance to meet this obligation.

He and his wife Pat have four children. Abe is a member of Nu Sigma Nu fraternity and plans on interning at Huntington Hospital. Specialty and practice plans are as yet undecided. THOMAS G. ALLEN 25 years ago Pasadena California was blessed with one of its most ardent supporters in the personage of Tom Allen. He did his undergraduate work at Loyola College, majoring in one-upsmanship and study habit development. For the past two years he has worked as a lab tech at the Huntington Hospital, and in between BUN determinations managed to marry Marilyn, who is an R.N. Tom ' s hobby is re- building their apartment in Pasadena so it will hold his Hi-Fi equipment. LACGH will claim him as an in- tern. Following a surgical residency he plans to locate in — where else? — Pasadena. - JAMES D. ARTHUR Twenty four years ago China added one more to their millions when Jim was born. Via Yangtze River, he cruised his way to San Francisco and eventually graduated from John Muir High School. His pre- med days were spent at UCLA. During these past 4 years a t USC, this Phi Chi ' s main interest has been in pediatric cardiology, a field in which he hopes to enter after completing his 5 years to the Army Senior-Intern Program. Married to Jean, this father of 2 boys currently enjoys playing " My Ole ' Ken- tucky Home " on rinky tink piano while waiting for his latest photographic endeavors to develop. BENJAMIN J. BERRY, JR. Born in Chicago 25 years ago, Ben now calls Reno, Nevada home. Sewanee College of Tennessee claimed him as a undergraduate. He has done re- search for Dr. Paul Starr on thyroid metabolism, and spent last summer at the U.S. Naval Hospital in San Diego. His hobbies include tinkering with his MG, the critical evaluation of television commercials, and polishing his emerald. He is an active member of Nu Sigma Nu. After an internship at Santa Clara County and a surgical residency, Ben, and his lovely wife, Karen, plan to locate in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area. RON A. BLANCHETTE This 27 year old, Canadian born, U.C.L.A. kinesthesi- ologist was admitted to our class for the sole purpose of training his fellow classmates in the mechanics of human motion. Ron has published papers in re- habilitation and was a fellow in child psychiatry; but, as of this dote he has not decided upon a specialty. Ron ' s wife Shela and daughter Bobbie claim, however, that his real ambition is to set a couch on the Parisian left bank in the practice of psychiatry. En route an internship is planned at Gorgas Hospital in the Canal Zone. LARRY E. BOLICK This modest southern gentleman came to USC School of Medicine via Brigham Young U. and UCLA. His days at BYU were spent blowing his own horn — and courting Glenda. This Phi Chi firmly believes in initially learning everything the right and only way . . . hence we note the 4 Bolick Boys. The next one will have to be a girl though, since he ' ll allow no " fifth " in his home! His future plans include an Army internship at Madigan and a surgery residency. is mS . JOHN F. BUBIEN John was born in Wisconsin 25 years ago and has lived in California for the past 13 years and received his BS from Loyola University. He is a member of Nu Sigma Nu and externed at Hollywood Presby- terian Hospital. During 1960 John did research on villous adenomas under Dr. Bullock. He plans to intern at LACGH and to practice in the Southern California area in an as yet undecided specialty. WILLARD BRUCE BUCKLEW An avid and talented golfer, Bruce was reared in the wilds of Kansas and attended high school in Wichita. From 1951-1953 he served in the U.S. Air Force, spending part of this time in London. Bruce attended Riverside College, Denver University and UCLA for his pre-medical studies. During medical school he has externed at Good Samaritan Hospital and worked in OB-GYN research with Dr. Gail An- derson — the latter feat resulting in the Bucklew name being added to the literature. A Phi Chi, Bruce ' s future plans include a LACGH internship followed by an OB-GYN residency with a future practice in Southern California. Wife Darlene ex- pects their first heir this month. -iS i.t ' SK.- ' I r DONALD OTIS CAMPBELL This twenty-five year old native Southern Californlan took his premedicol training at Stanford. At medical school Don has achieved great fame for his mechan- ical abilities and has saved many lectures by diag- nosing and treating ailing projectors. Still unmarried, he spends spare time as treasurer of the Senior Class, attending student nurse ' s dances, and ex- terning at Santa Fe Hospital, v here he will also serve his internship. Don intends to have a general practice somewhere in Southern California. STEVEN L. CHRISTENSON This 24 year old native of Los Angeles received his undergraduate education at the U. C. at Davis with the intention of continuing in veterinary medicine. However, after one year in veterinary school Steve tired of cows, horses, asses, and such, and decided to become a ' real ' doctor. He then came to USC, joined Nu Sigma Nu, and married Kay Marie (the cute blond nurse working on 7400). Steve will intern at Fresno, probably take 4 years of surgical train- ing, and enter Into a group practice in Northern California. Other plans include a small ranch where he can rai se his cattle and kids. WAYNE STUART CHRONISTER Frequently referred to in the past tense, Stu was born in Urbana, Illinois in 1935. He managed to grow up, and eventually graduated from Occidental College in 1957. So shamed by an article in the L. A. Times which featured him as the " typical poor struggling medical student " he procured a Holly- wood Pres. externship and joined the Army Senior Program. Despite the fact that he was known as the " atypical rich medical student " , he was elected president of Phi Chi. His family has expanded by eight, via Lucy ( " AKC Bassets, $85 and up " ) with another addition via his wife, Gaye, on the way (not for sale). Stuart hopes to get an Army intern- ship in North Carolina, perhaps do a residency, and practice. EDWIN C. COLBERN Ed, his wife Elizabeth, and daughter live in Whittier, Calif, where he was born 29 years ago. Ed attended the Univ. of Calif, in 1951 and commercial flying claimed his interest until Elizabeth and a premed. course at USC turned his thoughts. This member of Nu Sigma Nu enjoys fishing and hunting and will do his internship at Santa Fe Hospital. Ed ' s residency plans are as yet undecided. DANIEL ROBERT COOPER Another original Angeleno, Dan was born in our ' " fair " city in 1936. He received his AB in Chemistry from U.S.C., where he was a member of S.A.M. fraternity and received Phi Beta Kappa honors, in 1957. Since entering medical school, he has done research in " Vascular Circulation Under Stress " , while working with Dr. Meehan, and he has worked as a laboratory technician. Don is a member of Phi Delta Epsilon who plans to intern at L.A.C.G.H., but hasn ' t decided upon a specialty. His hobby is bridge, but he also enjoys swimming and tennis. His plans are to remain in the southern California area after being married to Sendee early this summer. DORIS P. COURINGTON use ' s answer to Welch and MacCollum left birth- place of Cherokee County, Oklahoma at age one to grow up in Birmingham, Alabama. Here she at- tended Howard College and the University of Ala- bama, receiving her AB degree. After working for the Public Health as a microbiologist she turned to marine microbiology at Scripps Institute of Oceanog- raphy. However, upon discovering that skin diving didn ' t mean that, she decided to enroll in medical school. During her stay at USC she has been profit- ably utilizing her electronmicroscopy skill in Dr. Paul Kotin ' s smog study. Doris will take a UCLA pathology internship, complete her residency and probably work in research. JAMES J. FEMINO " Jimbo " , one of the few remaining eligible bacfiejors of our class, was born in Boston, Massachusetts twenty-six years ago. He followed the gold rush to California where he has been residing the post four- teen years. This Phi Chi attended Citrus High School in Glendora, California and obtained a BA degree at the University of California at Riverside. Besides externing at Santa Fe Hospital, he has worked with Dr. Schwinn in Bone Tumor pathology and in Physical Medicine with Dr. Austin. Jim would like to practice in Southern California and will decide on a residency while interning at LACGH. HARVEY JAIMOND FIRESTONE Born in L.A. in 1933, Harv is a graduate of the L.A. City School System, being graduated from University High School where he was a cheerleader and mem- ber of the gymnastics team. A graduate of U.C.L.A., where he was a member of Z.B.T. fraternity, his major hobbies are skiing, mountaineering and jazz and classical music. As a medical student, he has participated with Dr. Chester Hyman in experiments on lymphatic flow and spent one summer as an ex- tern at Leterman Army Hospital. He is a member of Phi Delta Epsilon, will interne at Highland-Alameda and although uncertain concerning plans for a resi- dency, plans to practice in the Bay Area. He is presently a bachelor with no nuptial plans in the near future. MARTIN FLEISHMAN Marty believes that laughter is the best medicine. A frequent contributer to class writeups for the year book and wise remarks (within earshot of the in- structor) he has often proved his humor. He obtained his PhD degree in Psychology at U.C.L.A. and proved in his thesis that Szondi was a biased collector of old photographs. He went on to Napa State Hos- pital (No, not as a patient), for four years as a clinical psychologist. He soon tired of security and boredom and joined us with his famous remark to instructors " What are you? Some kind of a wise guy? " and his equally disturbing remark on the obscure diagnosis of a patient, " I think he ' s some kind of a NUT. " He plans to return to the San Francisco area for his internship at Southern Pacific Hospital. Undecided as to specialty, he is looking forward to a post-internship vacation in Mexico. r ' - S m . r CECIL J. FOLMAR Slight, thoughtful, well read and an expert on medi- cal economics. Jack admits to being on Army brat. He spent several childhood years in China and at- tended Huntington High School and Pasadena J.C. Usually quiet, he surprised his group members by knowing more articles than Dr. Manning (which is no small feat). He is the reverse of the usual am- bitious young man as his fondest hope is to be able to junk his Cadillac and buy a small car. His intern- ship at Tripler Army Hospital in Hawaii should be enjoyable. (He does not swim, surf or sunbathe.) He does plan to take his wife Mary Beth, rumors not- withstanding. ROBERT JAY FUTORAN This twenty-three year old Phi D E, a native of Brooklyn, New York, moved to Fontana, California twelve years ago. From Chaffey Union High School in Ontario, " Fute " migrated to UCLA for his pre- medical studies and while there earned two letters in soccer. During medical school Bob worked on various research topics including breath analysis with Dr. Oscar Balchum. He leads a very active life and among his outside interests he lists baseball, bridge, extension 1716 and Lady Luck in Havana. Bob has worked as an extern at St. Vincent ' s Hos- pital and future plans include an internship at LACGH. Although specialty plans are undecided, he hopes to practice in Southern California. RICHARD LOWELL GOODE Born In Los Angeles, Dick attended the University of California at Santa Barbara where he was Sopho- more Class President and in his senior year was President of the Associated Students. After obtain- ing his B.A. in Zoology, Dick arrived at USC and continued his politicking by serving as class SAMA representative, local SAMA president and this year was elected National Treasurer of the Student American Medical Association. A Nu Sig, mucopoly- saccharide research has claimed his summers with a future practice in Internal Medicine in California appearing likely. Wife Marcia and red headed daughters Allison and Melissa round out the Goode group. ' RICHARD H. GORDINIER Born 29 years ago in Denver, Colorado, Dick at- tended college at Alamosa, Colorado where he met and married Phyllis 9 years ago. He finally reports a child eight-ninths here which is a pretty long gestational period for anyone. Dick served 4 years as a Navy Medical Corpsman and then came back to get his A. A. and B.A. degrees in Zoology from U.C.L.A. He has been well thought of in the Class of ' 61 and served as Class Treasurer in our Junior year. In the summer months he has kept busy for three consecutive years with research fellowships under Drs. Jack Wolfe and Henry No- kada and presently the Queen of Angels Hospital is making use of his abilities as an extern. He will intern at Fresno County Hospital and plans for a General Practice residency afterwards at Ventura or Santa Rosa, California. CHARLES RICHARD GRAHAM A midwestern product of Illinois, Dick attended Oklahoma A M for two years where he was Sophomore Class President. The next four years were spent as a Marine Corps corpsman with a tour of duty in Korea — now the source of many a present day war story. Dick completed his pre-med studies at San Diego State College and while at USC has repeated his former triumph by being Sophomore Class President. A St. Vincent ' s externship and being treasurer of Phi Rho have kept him busy with a Navy internship and OB-GYN practice in San Diego appearing eminent. Wife Caroline and daughters Lisa and Erin complete the Graham clan. L HOWARD SEWARD GRAY A grand harrah with hats off to this years editor of the annual. Born October 13, 1935 in San Francisco this well-versed, loquacious young man with an A.B. from Occidental College showed the class what it means to have a liberal arts education. Howard ' s special interests are good food and The City, where he is credited with guiding two special tours for fellow classmen. He has externed at Washington Hospital and the San Diego Naval Hospital. After interning at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, this Phi Chi plans two years in the Navy, followed by an OB-GYN residency and practice in Arizona. JACK GREGORY This fwenty-nine year old M.D. claims Medford, Massachusetts as his birthplace, but became a na- turalized Colifornian in 1946. He was an under- graduate at UCLA where he obtained his BA degree. He continued with his graduate studies at the Uni- versity of Hawaii and the University of Pennsyl- vania in the Department of Microbiology adding MA and PhD degrees to his name. His main research endeavor was the field of microbial genetics. His plans of professional bachelorhood have been con- siderably altered by a Persian beauty, Hasmik. As an active member of Phi Chi, he has also found time to extern at St. Vincents. Residency plans are undecided, but the future holds an LACGH intern- ship and Southern California practice for " Jackson " . DONALD L.

SCHADE One of the more dynamic members of our class is Hugh Schade — otherwise known as Big Daddy Hugh, Uncle Hugh, or when he is running for politi- cal office (which is all the time) as Honest Hugh. We will never forget Hugh ' s first words on the first day of medical school. " OK fellows, let ' s fall into line. " Hugh has been busy organizing and estab- lishing policy ever since. (Rumor has it that he or- ganized his own delivery). The remainder of his time in medical school has been spent attending Army Reserve meetings, externing, skiing, support- ing a wife and 2 children, and sleeping in class. (Actually the only time Hugh is awake in class is when he is making a speech.) Prior to coming to USC Hugh attended U.C. and served 21 2 years as Lieutenant in the US Army In- fantry — which explains why Hugh still salutes in- stead of saying hello. This coming year will find Hughbert heading for the carefree sun-drenched beaches of Washington (State, that is) where at Madigon Army Hospital he will once again return to the succulent, tax-supported, $525 per month, en- dometrium of the US Army from whence he sprung or sprang or springed or something.

To fill the need, The Minnesota Mutual Life Insur- ance Company created the SAMA Life Plan for the Student American Medical Association. Many thou- sands of young medical men and women now own a SAMA Life policy. It is only $25 a year for $6,500 or $50 a year for $13,000 — and has many features tailored to the needs of young doctors. In addition, Minnesota Mutual Life has many SAMA Companion Plans to go with SAMA Life as the next step in building an estate. As a further help during low income years, Minnesota Mutual has a bank- financed Deferred Premium Payment Plan — no pre- miums to pay for 3 years. RICHARD C.
