Four years ago, when we were notified of our acceptance into the class of 1966 of USC ' s School of Medicine, the signature at the bottom of the letter was that of Peter V. Lee, M.D., Admissions Officer. Dr. Lee had been in that position since 1955 and for many of us he was the first faculty member with whom we had contact. His work in admissions was recognized as outstanding not only by the School but nationally as well. Dr. Lee came to USC in 1955 from Stanford as Assistant Dean and became Associate Dean in 1958, a position he held until 1961, when he asked to be relieved so that he could devote more time to his teaching. And this he did, ultimately teaching in all four years of the medical school curriculum. Many of us knew him in the first year course, " Introduction to the Doctor-Patient Relationship, " then conducted at the John Wesley Hospital. We next saw him teaching Pharmacology in the second year, giving some lectures and presiding over a lab section in McKibben. For some time. Dr. Lee was a participating faculty member in the fourth-year OPD teaching program; now he is a word teacher in the third-year medicine clerkship. His dedication to teaching is surely demonstrated by the amount of time and effort he devoted to his own participation in all phases of our program. dedicated to Peter V. Lee Many of us may be unaware of the national prominence of our own Dr. Lee in medical education. Long a member of the Continuing Group on Student Affairs of the Association of American Colleges, Dr. Lee was active in that group ' s cooperative research projects. In addition. Dr. Lee has been a member of the AAMC ' s Committee on Research in Education and has helped shape policy for the Association ' s sharply increased activity in educational research. Dr. Lee ' s interest in and competence in medical education were recognized when he was asked by the Commonwealth Fund in 1958 to review a number of experiments in medical education. This activity of his resulted in the publication in 1962 of his book. Medical Schools and the Changing Times: Nine Case Reports on Experimentation in Medical Education, 1950-1960. Dr. Lee played a large part in the design of the multidiscipline labs in McKibben Hall. These teaching rooms were planned at a time when the concept of the multidiscipline laboratory was quite new and it is a tribute to the McKibben labs that medical educators from this country and others have visited, studied and copied ours in the development and construction of laboratory facilities at their respective medical schools. At the present time. Dr. Lee is Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Medicine. In his work he teaches in the first, second, and third years of our curriculum, working in his usual tireless way: painstakingly preparing for his classes, meeting with students both in class and out, always available for consultation or advisement, cheerfully giving his time in behalf of students far beyond the most liberal definition of pedagogic " duty. " Such efforts often go unrecognized and are taken for granted. The Class of 1966 would like to give public demonstration of their appreciation of such good work and offer sincere thanks to one who has been so selfless in his dedication to medical education. We therefore take pleasure and pride in dedicating this Asklepiad to Peter V. Lee, M.D. administration • the deans. ■ The faculty, to the first and second year student, although omnipresent, seem distant and intangi- ble. . only in the third and fourth years as profes- sional goals are brought into focus, do the faculty become people, perceived by the students as per- sons. Satisfaction generally abounds . William E. Nerlich, M.D. the faculty, the advisors his many phases and faces -(S qi V associate deans r The first and second years of medical school are years of challenge and adaptation. The student is challenged with an overwhelming strange body of information in a new language presented in a day long curriculum for which he can prepare only in night to night, night long study. To survive, the student must develop attitudes of self-denial and self-discipline and unquestioning faith in the applicability of his study. Tired and unable to test his suitability in his chosen profession, the student is apt to become confused. In his insecurity he seeks the companionship of his classmates — persons become groups — the group becomes a class. The Faculty, though omnipresent, seem distant and intangible. The student dissects his way through the curriculum, ex- hilarated briefly by clinical applications, but the hurdle into the third year casts a long shadow downward. The third year, once achieved, brings release, inde- pendence and a new kind of responsibility fast. Sud- denly, professional goals are brought into focus. The confrontation which occurs can lead to self realization or panic. The class dissolves and the student becomes group oriented. Faculty become people, perceived by the students as persons. Satisfaction generally abounds. In the fourth year, the student ' s feeling of independence becomes complete. Freedom extends and responsibility broadens and deepens. The Faculty multiplies and divides — withdraws with critical or admiring glances. After National Board examinations the student has " had it " . He coasts, contemplating next events; he is pre-occupied with other places, other times. Gradua- tion is anti-climactic. The student is finished and alone — almost without knowing it.

Dr. John L. Webb A native Colifornion, Dr. Webb was educated at Cal-Tech, where, studying under Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, he gained a lasting interest in Biochemical and Biological science. Upon graduation, he joined the USC Pharmacology staff. Although he had never taken a course in the subject. Dr. Webb found himself, his motivation and ability, well suited for Pharmacology. So well suited, in fact, that he rose quickly, assuming in 1952, full professorship and shortly thereafter, the chairmanship of the department. An inspiring leader, he attracted around him a galaxy of talented associates. His enthusiasm and enterprise were contagious, and in his fourteen years as chairman Dr. Webb built one of the nation ' s best departments of Pharmacology. A diligent researcher, in 1963, Dr. Webb was awarded the University ' s acclaim for excellence in creative scholarship and research. He read constantly, and published prodigiously. Between 1964 and 1966 alone. Dr. Webb published 38 times. He published 3 volumes of his unique work on enzyme inhibitors. This work, the product of this man ' s energetic mind and 18 years of research was published in an era when such a task would be considered difficult even for a committee of experts. Even burdened with such responsibility. Dr. Webb never forgot what he considered his primary task: the teaching of his students. An interested, involved teacher. Dr. Webb directed his energies toward teaching the scientific rational of treatment, rather than the expediency of it. He taught the doctors responsibility for the individual patient; both medically and financially. So superb was his teaching, that in 1960 he won the all University award for excellence in teaching. A diversely interested man. Dr. Webb painted Sumi Japanese art, wrote poetry, read and enjoyed classics, and earned membership in the American Institute of Archeology. Diversely interested and yet modest. Dr. Webb ' s remarkable paintings were not hung in his office, and his poetry remained locked in his desk drawer. 25 A superb researcher and inspired leader, a concerned teacher and diverse individual, John Webb will be remembered for all of these, and, to those closest, his students, his associates and friends, he will be remem- bered for his warmth, his wit and concern. All of us are grateful for John Webb, all of us will miss him greatly. a tribute to salerni collegium SALERNI COLLEGIUM is one of the most active yet seldom recognized organizations contributing to our medical education. Two years ago Salerni innovated c new preceptor program for senior medical students — tfie object being to acquaint the future doctor with the aspects of private medical care. The program started modestly under the direction of Dr. Deron Hovsepian with only 14 students participating. Their response was so favorable that this year there are 33 preceptees and 100 preceptors. For this and the many other services it provides, the 1966 Asklepiad gratefully salutes Salerni Collegium.

The rapid social and scien- tific changes in the profession of medicine have brought new pressures on us as beginning medical students. With the growing volumes of medical knowledge we have begun to realize that we probably will never be able to learn as much as we would like, and that some degree of specialization is inevitable And, since much of what we learn may soon be changed, it is understandable that we question the meaning and purpose of each bit of information to which we have been exposed and that we have been concerned with its correlation value.

Hard work and patient study in this first year have left us with a solid foundation in the basic sciences, so necessary to understanding the future problems we will scon be facing. Some of the mysticism of the medical profession has been taken from us but has been re- placed by opening the door to the awesome and incredibly vast amount of knowledge essential to make the decisions we are being groomed to make.

F , f T The physician himself is now being examined rather provocatively not only in the novel, on the hypnotic T.V., but in the modern fi lm. Only a decade ago, as a dogtrot person- age without surname, the doctor entered some small chapter, serial of a 15 minute soap-opera, or interposed film scene to pronounce an actor dead or alive, then van- ished without comment. Not only has he now been given a longer speaking part, but has even become an acceptable hero. The artist on behalf of society sees him now as he once did the picaroon, the magician, the cowboy, the master jewel-thief, the inter- national spy, the aristocrat-detective— namely, the symbol of the contemporary " jack-of- all trades, " with the usual special emphasis on the chief trade of times. He is now interesting the world ' s greatest film directors: David Lean (Doctor Zhivago), Frederico Fellini (Juliette of the Spirits), and Akira Kurasawa (Redbeard), not to mention several others (Wild Strawberries of Bergman, on a retired physician, etc.). Modern artists love the use of a mysterious symbolic illness in analyzing contemporary society. And no fitter witness than the physician to explore it. Admittedly, such doctor-heroes are only inventions, squeezed out of the fictive imaginations of controversial artists; yet these film directors are the supreme artists of our time, oligarchs of taste, of craftsmanship, and thought, with telling philosophic insights— true Bellerophons yet keeping a firm grip on Pegasus. As it happens, their views on physicians are intriguing. ...and The following series of pages examines the diverse personalities of the physician. Certain figures have been selected to suggest the mood of the profession we have chosen for ourselves as seen by the members of another profession, the modern cinema. v 42 concern In scene after scene of Zhivago, persons parade before us in double exposure: firstly as man the miracle, full of feeling, integrity, with dark design and perfect architecture; secondly, as animal, securer in a pack, without compassion, schemer, destroyer, blight; firstly as soul, then as body. Schizoic Yuri Zhivago, part poet, part physician, is the ideal hero of such a vision. He is also Lean ' s typical protagonist— a pure esthete forced into the irritating position of having to struggle for survival. In Zhivago, not only is the social theory of the Russian revolution thwarted by its body politic, but the sensitive young Yuri becomes also the defeated victim of his own body ' s powers and whims. A high tragic sense evinces itself when we see the physician-poet succumb to forces he has ironically groomed himself to fully comprehend. Although Yuri Zhivago considers himself physician first and poet second, there is a perilous contour to his physician ' s vision, the contour of the University theorist, admirous of the delicate beauty of the living creature, whether good or evil— awed at the exquisite complexity of disease and death, without the special schooling required to defend himself from their ravages. Lean establishes this study in the earliest scenes: Yuri: (spying through microscope lens a bacillus oozing through a rainbow colour field, overlaid in delicious liquid yellows) How beautiful! How very beautiful! Professor of Pathology: Yes, but these beautiful organisms do terrible things to human beings, Yuri. " Those organisms " turn out to be symbols of the physician ' s oldest enemies, spiteful inexorable fate, human depravity, ignorance: the Bolshevik manifestos, Komarovsky ' s debauchery, Strel ' nikov ' s brigandry, guerilla bands machine-gunning schoolboys, massacres, wars, conflagrations, the bitter elements, and the hateful elbow of destiny interposing itself between Yuri and his beloved Lara. There is also important mention of a mysterious 8 years spent in degradation by Yuri in Moscow ' s alleys. And through these episodes, only Yuri ' s eyes, wide in scientific glare, scanning packed crowds in trenches, in ambushes, in cattle-trains; and raising esthetic objections against the " bold new society, " which like a scanty cotton bandage cannot stem the life-blood leaking from the revolutionary wound opened across all mother Russia. Lean ' s main philosophic point is that the position of the physician and the poet often isolate them from life as helpless observers. Glass, in the ingenious ways Lean employs it, is the symbol of this isolation; and in each scene windows, lenses, eye-glasses, mirrors are interposed between viewer Yuri and the viewed world. Only when Lara, symbol of Yuri ' s private security, flees to Vladivostok does he smash the frosted glass window of the country estate, ending his juvenile phase, ending his poetic career, ending his detachment. The subsequent 8 years of wandering is only alluded to in the film. To me, it is the most crucial episode of all; since I wonder how much dirtying his hands made a difference in Yuri ' s character. But Lean limits his analysis to the esthete-physician, and, as in Lawrence of Arabia, does not explore the question of the maturation of an esthete. What Lean does say is that, as always, the trained and developed intellectual is utterly innocuous in terms of affecting the forces of the times. The aristocrat-physician loses his effective position of independence, once the imperishable children of the poor indenture and appropriate his technical services as their inalienable right. In this respect Yuri was the last witness of the passing of human compassion from the social milieu of his nation, stood with bitter feeling as the ignorant and untutored enlisted their betters in a scheme by which human integrity was effaced. And if the audience thought for a moment that Yuri ' s poems survived, it missed Lean ' s meaning in the last scene, where the symbol of the new society, the mighty hydroelectric dam drowned out in its billionwatt plunge the delicate modulations of the poet ' s spirit. 43 I Timothy Leary called Fellini ' s Juliette of the Spirits, " the first LSD film, since we never know where Juliette is perceiving or hallucinating. " And rightly so, since Fellini ' s theme is the psychology of reality— and his subject is Juliette, a bored, middle-class, middle-aged housewife suffering from suburban syndrome: an intolerable anxiety that she is losing her husband. And, like any modern, distressed housewife, she seeks help— spiritual and psychiatric. The search comprises the action skeleton of the film and brings her into contact with 5 charlatans: Bhisma, the Indian faith-healer: lynx-eyes, the private eye disguised as a priest: Susy, the instinctual, sexual witch; Dr. Don Raffaele, the lecherous mainstay of Julliette ' s beach and parasol society: and Dr. Miller, the celibate, breast- less, blond American psychiatrist. Each of these persons is a satire on the modern forms of psychiatric theory and treatment : and Fellini has a notorious opinion on the contemporary effectiveness of this form of medicine. The artist ' s quarrel with the psychiatrist is based upon a strong feeling in the artist ' s mind that age-old insights conceived by the most supreme minds in rare depth and understanding have been taken up by a Pickerbaughistic clique of less gifted men in order to be applied, like aspirin, as a popular remedy for spiritual and mental suffer- ing. He is, perhaps, a simple case of the purist, intolerant of the pragmatist ' s attempt- mg to drive out old devils with old remedies under the guise of a new scientific approach. Detectable in this quarrel is the artist ' s reluctance to formulize the work- ings of the human mind. The artist believes that a complete elucidation is a form not of spiritual release, but of spiritual suicide. And there may be something in his complaint. At any rate, Juliette is an ideal Freudian case study, a victim of childhood suppres- sions and conflicts engendered by an autocratic mother and a father who was banished from the household for running off with a young circus girl. Juliette, in siding with her mother against her father, has felt a life-long guilt, for which she attempts to atone by devoting herself to her husband, Giorgio, as a priestess of his domestic life. Giorgio, like her father, is a ladies ' man. Yet. somehow, she is unable to develop her sexual role sucessfully enough to interest him. She is basically an esprit naturel. a sincere, introspective personality, normally inhibited, in a society where only an artificial attractiveness and a flaunted sexuality count. She is the only character who feels a mature emotion of love that is spiritual and full of affection. However, the arbiters of her society are " liberated " , that is, they have become ob- sessed with an unabashed expression of their sexual desires, their consensus is that it is a livmg kmd of healthful therapy, a dynamic exercise that will unwrinkle skins, restore vitality, and conquer death. Fellini ' s point is that this attitude is supported by the physicians and psychiatrists who minister to the members of Juliette ' s society. Dr. Miller organizes an afternoon garden party psychodrama to encourage an ex- hibitionism thinly disguised as group therapy; and Dr. Don Raffaele, enthroned on a beach chair, scoffs at Juliette ' s account of her visionary mental life: 44 " That could be simply bad digestion. Once we are dead, we are but a handful of dust, and if some small bone does remain, we ' d better watch out for the dogs. Go swimming, buy yourself a horse and take it jumping. But, above all, tell your husband to make love to you more often. Ah, against the spirits and against toothaches, there is no better remedy than making love. " Bhisma is the first analyst, and Juliette can sense the fraud intuitively. Bhisma is the hermaphroditic impressario of sex, an international con-artist, and his-her reply to Juliette ' s mental question begins with an extemporaneous recital of the love- bites and yelps from the Kama Sutra (Art of Love) " Sounds to be uttered to procure pleasure are the Hin! The great sigh! The sound Put! The sound Pat! The sound Plat! . . . Plat, Plat, Plat, Plat! " ( . . . siezure). It is significant that a stethoscoped phyisician is in constant attendance as Bhisma rolls in and out of epileptic seizures. The young physician is a symbol of the healing claim in Bhisma. " Love is a religion, Juliette. Your husband is your God, and you are priestess of the cult. Your spirit, like this incense, must burn and smoke on the altar of your loving body ... " (another siezure). The second fraud is Lynx-eyes, the private eye who dresses as a priest, representing the Western approach (as opposed to the Indian) to pleasure. He is the voyeur, armed with camera and boasting the " most modern techniques " — a cynical peeping- Tom who never actually Involves himself, but loves to watch others. In this category Fellini puts Juliette ' s closest friends and family; Sylva, the regal mother, Valentina, the visitor Jose (the ideal tranquillizer), and the scoptophilic sculptress ( " God has the most beautiful body. " ). Lynx-eyes believes that his candid bouduoir spying on husband Giorgio will work the idea! catharsis in Juliette and by a complete laundering reunite husband and wife. At least he proves the errant Giorgio not impotent. Susy is not only a highly sophisticated synthesis of Eastern and Western views, but is the living embodiment of Dr. Miller ' s theory: love thyself and especial ly thine own neuroses. The curious inhabitants of Susy ' s erotic mansion are presented like a tour de force through Baron von Krafft-Ebing ' s Psychopathia Sexualis: a Russian fetishist, the hebephrenic sister, Momi the Farouk-figure, a satyriatic Egyptian seducer, six assorted lesbians, two nymphomaniacs, monks, sadists, masochists, transvestites, and homosexuals. The spontaneous orgies last indefinitely, therapeutically. Juliette flees this House of Usher, brought to her senses by a seducer ' s pass. Juliette, by a series of bold emotional decisions, quite independently of this medical and psychiatric (symbolically if you wish) fiasco, rescues herself from the psy- chological striptease of her environment. She discovers ironically that the real hallucination is this very environment. She sequesters herself from it in a final act of personal triumph and catharsis. ' a» .. 45 In Redbeard Kurasawa presents a masterpiece study of the elements in the physician ' s character which ennoble his profession above all others. Redbeard is a stalwart Robin Hood, grotesque, cunning, hirsute and the chief doctor of a poorhouse clinic. Central to Redbeord ' s character is o firm conviction that the body and the soul are inextricable in health and in sickness. The clinic itself appears as a horrendous vision of Hell stuffed with Dantesque forms, human ghosts writhing each in the pain of some unforgivable sin, some invisible emotional agony. Inscrutable fate compels a rebellious young intern to enter the clinic services. This intern possesses a modern Dutch Medical education of which the gist is ironically contained in four thin notebooks. Redbeard digests the notebooks in two days, alienating the intern who intended to use the private knowl- edge to become wealthy. The plot of the film romanticizes the emotional reunion between the young and the old doctor. The young disciple learns in short order that the truly effectual physician is not the selfish technician. Redbeard is terse, but behaves as if the physician is essentially a humanitarian who must harness the skills of the magician, the cunning politician, the teacher, the scientist, and the Father in his practice. All the mechanical manipulations ultimately fail since they do not destroy the effective cause of disease; The will to die. Kurosawa conceives the will to death as abreoction to stress, to emotional tragedy which dissipates the patient ' s own resources of defense. Too often Redbeard and the disciple find themselves powerless recorders, able to temporize with disease, scarecrow it over a fence, but inexorably death conquers the patients of the contagious words, one by one. Five or six depth studies of the history of physical afflictions are related in the film, related with such a priestly tenderness. sympathy, and understanding of human passion and foible that the young intern begins to respect the Angel of death. " Death is dignified, " grumbles Redbeard to his disciple, " and you must watch this old man die, you and he alone in his chamber. " The disciple recoils in horror, the old man coughs away, his life cut short by a cancer that seems to derive from the grief of losing his family. Again and again the intern witnesses the dignity of dying, and wide eyes narrow with wisdom. He feels himself shrink and dwindle into a hum- bleness that saps his pride and defiance, and thereby falls seriously ill himself. Not drugs nor all the knowledge in his four notebooks restore him, but the compassionate care of a previous patient. Through this episode the intern becomes resolved to devote his life to Redbeord ' s theory of medicine and to abandon a wealthy practice. " Behind every illness is some overwhelming grief or misfor- tune " counsels Redbeard; and the physician ' s responsibility is to understand the nature of the emotional stress preceding the clinical signs. In this respect, Kurosawa recalls to mind Plato who banished from his Republic all physicians save those with illnesses themselves. An intriguing set of commentaries from our film directors!

Self-reliance, application of knowledge and the doctor-patient relationship are the style of the year. Perhaps the most stressful period of our lives was the review before finals. Life in those times was simple: study, eat and sleep, often eliminating the latter. The amount of material to be mastered in the eight, or so, courses of the second semester was more than any of us had met in a full year of undergrad. In looking back, it seems remarkable that we could study as much as we did over such a seemingly endless time.

The television that your roommate or wife or neighbor has time for, comes looking to make o sophomore more lonely. have a lark, have a lark, have a lark today Up high on more cinder blocks or in the case ore the books. In there, in the anatomy, in the physiology, the microbiology, the use of drugs, especially in the pathology, the sophomore knows, is the secret of life. It ' s so dreary. As freshmen, we found out how the body works. As sophomores, we learned it doesn ' t work. 9:30, physical diagnosis, the history: " Have you ever hod the bad blood? " " Sheeat, man.

" anonymous voice: " This guy teaches two courses? " and experience Medical sophomory goes beyond iotrotechnics and tedious medical theory. In the evening and on weekends, each student moves in his own way to divorce himself from dullness, to develop the person he is, or to pursue the person he fancies himself. He occupies himself so as to forget that the immense body of medical knowledge which is inscribed within his notebook will, in fact, escape his grasp forever. He plays tennis or golf or sails, for fun, but also to forget his failures or maybe to celebrate seemingly fleeting successes. In those few free times, when he wolks out the doors of County Hospital or McKibben, he finds himself in east Los Ange- les and that ' s where the trouble is. The sophomore is seen on the streets of the city in the late evening volunteering his services to help the poverty program or to support a neighborhood self help project. Outside the doors, also, is California, and the sophomore grows in the wealth of ambition and enterprise. Around him is the soft glow of success in the promising state where fortunes are literally made by men who, only a year before, saved a few cents buying chicken necks and wings for soup. The reality of the world outside and the unnatural camera obscura life in his medical books slowly cultures the maturity the sophomore seeks. All of the circumstances are given a different emphasis depending on the students background and orienta- tion, and, in this aggregate institutional society, each man becomes an individual. As the year closes and he finally reaches the point where he can ' t tolerate another line out of Robbin ' s or when the resolving power of his Meopto special exceeds the resolving power of his eyeballs, then he becomes thoughtful when he ' s alone. He dwells excessively on whether he has learned all he could in the post two years, and he pauses for a moment to anticipate the clinical work ahead with a comical enthusiastic dread. But in front of anyone else, the sophomore is a reluctantly vainglorious charac- ter who slumps heavily into his chair, slams his notes down onto his desk, and wearily affirms: " If we con just moke it through the boards, we ' ll make it. " 51 As the sophomore year opens we take our life in our hands and ormed only with a plastic squeeze bottle of pink water and cryptic warnings from the staff we come face to face with the major enemies of man. In one semester we were treated to afternoon tete-a-tetes with every pus producing, infesting, stool dwelling creature that ever sow the inside of a hospital- Moreover, we came to know them intimotely. We studied their eating habits, their social preferences, their sexual behavior, their occupations and their taste for heat, cold and formalin. They ' re pretty people, all violet or pink or acid fast. They live in any neighborhood but they keep a messy house, turning the most pedicured pad into a scruffy tricophyta toenail. Microbiology was our first taste of anything that really approached medicine. We were particulary fortunate to begin our investigations of these pathologic aspects of life with the especially fine facilities and skilled stoff of practicing and reseorch Physicians with which we trained Our efforts m this difficult and confusing field were not always the finest however, as witnessed by the following authentic note left by the office on o stack of culture tubes in the incubator: Group 15, The tubes you marked FL are chick embryo (CEF) and the ones marked CEF ore FL.

Today: Horowitz reciting at the gross organ, the subtle humor of Margie Biddle,- tomorrow: Dr. Peter ' s rib-tickling lectures on bone and joint; coming attractions include Dr. Edmonson ' s dissertations on the social diseases and Dr. Cleland " bugging " us with infectuous disease pathology. Drs. Kern and Kernen were all heart. Now we ' re looking back. A well taught, difficult subject, pathology proved to be one of, if not the most, challenging courses this year. Path was not a dead subject, although someone regrettably remarked, " It left us dead on our feet. " evaluating the pharmacopea for the PHARMACOLOGY After 34 weeks of Pharmacology at the rate of 7 lectures per week everyone had enough notes to equal, at least in paper used, any major textbook in the course. But here was a course that captivated everyone ' s interest as well. The material discussed in those lectures was to become working fundamentals for all future progress in medicine. The department, expertly organized by Dr. Webb, stressed to us the importance of the individual in dispensing drugs, the mechanism of action of representative drugs, but in all instances emphasizing and reemphosizing the importance of the scientific and intellectual frame of mind in which to view therapeutic efficacy of drugs we would in fact be using. We had to work hard in Pharmacology but the effort was worthwhile for at the end we had a good review of physiology, an introduction to clinical medicine, and a thorough background in the science of Pharmacology. patient. I ' JIllg l f super ' It ' 1 PSYCHIATRY Depressed? Hyperactive? Anxious? A little of all for each of us in our sophomore year! Almost made psych a participation sport! We found in psychiatry a quiet spot with seventeen weekly TV episodes and not one commercial. We found, through the knowledge of Dr. Enelow and the individual group leaders, an opportunity to view the spectrum of mental illness — from neu- roses to learning defects. Here we found a new, personal dimension to medicine — the patient ' s mental health. For thrills and suspense, it will never replace batman or U.N.C.L.E., but as an experience in human relations, psych, remains second to none. 58 pallium soothsaying or ' my dear, you look OS though you ' re about to cry 1 9 NEUROLOGY ' " And then there was this case sent to me after five eminent clinicians couldn ' t diagnose this man ' s problem " this 35 year old man comes into your office and tells you he fell into the sink when he leaned over to wash his face this morning — symptoms like that are unmistakable — he obviously hod Tabes.

Answer: proba- bly never but the nnost likely possibility would be in the Survey of Disease Courses. In the second year we were exposed to the normal anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, etiology, radi- ology, pathology, surgery, and pharmacology of the diseases of the bones and joints, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system; not to mention the incidence, etiology, mode of tran smis- sion, attack rate, pathology, complications of Infectious diseases of all ages. The list of topics covered is impressive. Yet the most impressive aspect of this course is the zeal with which the instructors approached the task of presenting such an enormous wealth of material. I ' m sure that we will never forget Dr. Sherwin ' s analogies, or Dr. Blonkenhorn wrestling for the micro- phone to make still one more point. In fact there were many experiences in Survey of Disease courses that will long be remembered: Dr. Dressner ' s brief slide review of X-ray changes in Rheumatoid Arthritis; Dr. Tsugi ' s hurried words as Dr. Sherwin finished 5 minutes before the end of the hour; Dr. Motley ' s gas levels; Dr. Kernon ' s morbid anatomy; Dr. Turner ' s " frankness ' in diagnosing cardiac anomalies on Sines that never projected well enough to see; Dr. Harvey ' s modest presentation on the three necessities of orthopedic life; or Dr. Jellife ' s father-in-law who served well as illustrative case material. Nor will we forget the excellent review of immunopathology given by Dr. Friou; or the overview of Rheumatic diseases given with a touch of nostalgia by Dr. Edmundson; or the lucid presentations of clinical medicine given by Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Balchum. t . f false: you ' re going to the ' You ' re sweet, but this is the lost time that Wycoff ge dote.

' nts on the new gradir juniors . the class of The junior year can be described as an experience in learning to be compulsive. Out of this compulsiveness, the stream of scut work, the endless hours of perfecting a work up, and the overwhelming amount of material given to us in lectures and conferences, emerges a cautious yet confident senior student. He is no longer the scared confused junior that began in September. He is now filled with enthusiasm for total patient care, for obtaining the facts, placing them in their proper perspective and arriving at a proper diagnosis and method of treatment. The Class of 1967 will never forget their junior year for it was the first time the student learned how it felt to be a physician. Graham Smith, president a year for gaining self IF R.

" Study your patient, " admonished the tall, distinguished professor and, by God, we did |ust that until 7 p.m. every evening (after v hich v e took off to Eastside). Bedside rounds were an ordeal of endurance, and always managed to uncover all the embarrassing omissions in the workup. We were told that with experience one spent less and less time extracting a history. On the contrary, we were spending greater time as the clerkship progressed. After all, our training was directed to acquiring those complusive habits which a doctor requires. The instructor always Vvias ready to assist, having the unique ability to ask questions beyond the limit of our knowledge of the patient. The patient, of course, would always cheerfully provide the missing information, in some ways all the routine seemed a regression to a lower level of learning. Did the graying professor really need to spend all that time demonstrating the exhaustive workup? We must admit that certain techniques and routines ore now automatic, and for this we are grateful. Time was largely eroded away between a stream of scut work and a mountain of paper work, but we were able to spend enough time with the patient to learn how gratifying patient care can be. The appreciation of the patient was usually abundant and made the whole experience worthwhile. Perhaps the most gratifying and important transition we mode was one of motivation and self confidence.

Then there was learning to perfect the neurological examination. Was Gorden ' s test stroking the tibia or was it squeezing the calf? Then, of course. Dr. Von Hagen always had to put one of us on the spot and point out all our mistakes. But after he did, we never forgot except when it came time to examme Lynn, the beautiful model with the mocked disease. We were usually so keyed up we usuolly forgot to do something, like the Babinski. Yes, we learned many things, including how to fall asleep with our eyes open during Dr. Ivers ' lecture. Oh ' My poor eighth nerve! I ' m the pathologist! Mr. Heoly, do you agri 72 Sing along with Tranquodo and I Dng the autopsies, biopsies and current events? Moke your own caption! PATHOLOGY Wasn ' t it amazing how the 60-yeai-old female with congestive heart failure whose microscopic slides we reviewed on Monday evening always turned out to be a 49- ' year-old male who died of an Ml, on Tuesday morning when Dr. Peters reviewed the slides. You could hove sworn that the mosserated piece of tissue with the sloughed mucosa was vagina. We only come as close to those diagnosis as we did to answering Dr. Kuzma ' s questions. Traumatic as some of his questions were, we knew we could always expect to discuss current events while Dr. Kuzma was doing the autopsy. Quite a coincidence that nobody ever knew whose turn it was to run the bowel. Then there were all the liver biopsies that you read with Dr. Peters. Never did get one of them correct. All kidding aside, the three weeks we spent on the pathology clerkship proved to be a valuable aid as nearly half of us took the Pathology National Boards in June. 73 Look out, Dad. you ' ll break my back learn only the important SURGERY Overwhelming is the only word that can describe the amount of material that we assimilated from more than twelve courses in surgery and the surgical subspecialties. Everything from the early diagnosis of a patient in shock, the treatment of a felon, to the spelling and technique of a myringotomy (Is this spelled correctly, House?), were interpreted, cate- gorized, and recorded in 72 different computers, each with his own personality. In obstetrics the lecture that drew the most attentive audience was the final one on contraceptive devices. Let ' s face it guys, the rhythm method is still best, i.e. be nice but be careful. Ah, yes, anesthesia really puts patients to sleep. Half of us were asleep 5 minutes after lecture started. There were many other courses, which were both good and bad. One reassurance to Dr. C. J. Berne, Chairman of the Department of Surgery — Our reason for not sitting in the front rows was not because of a gulf of knowledge that may have existed between yourself and us, but rather a matter of habit. With professors like yourself and the others who taught us that gulf will soon be crossed. SURVEYOR DISEASE Symptoms, signs, diagnosis, differential, treatment, prognosis, and pathology were the different acts in that great color spectacular, " Survey of Disease or Learn only the Important Material " . Leadmg lady was Dr. Helen Martin whose performances m the Kidney and Endocrinology sections were as perplexing as her questions on the final exam. Dr. Reynolds portrayed the young chemist who tried to devise a way for establish- ing how much fluid needed to be replaced in a patient attacked by the arch villain, Laberror. Dr. Rapaport ' s performance in Hematology was s o outstanding he was given a Golden Apple Award by the Academy of Junior Students. Humor was provided by Doctors Horowitz, Rossof, and Haverback as they discussed the different forms of pancreatic cysts. Assistant to arch villian Laberror was Dr. Bethune, who was always hissed as he came on stage. However, he was unaffected as he always said " Ah, that is music to my ears. " The supporting cast was outstanding and too long to mention individually. Doctors Nelson, Redeker, and Peters, however, deserve special mention for their outstanding performances in the other sections.

This gentleman-scholar possesses all-round athletic finesse, artistic virtuosity, musical aptness, affinity for sports cars and other marginally functioning mechanical devices, apprecation of travel, facility in German, and a self-sufficiency which is the only plousoble explanation for his being the oldest bachelor in the class (unless it was Gerry ' s cooking!). Congenial Wally spent undergraduate and graduate years at U.S.C., has frequented various assorted biochemistry labs, including King ' s College, London, and adventurously transports his large frame to the University of Kentucky for internship. BARRY C. BASS Bountiful Barry, although well-rounded only in a limited sense, is one of the true individualists of the class. Barry possesses a certain boyish charm, and is at times an almost alarming free thinker, while at once trenchant and analytical. This ebullient bastion of liberalism undertakes all his enterprises with a characteristic exuberance, whether it be acquiring books, rec- ords, or kittens, conducting a Student Forum, computerizing medicine, or eating ice cream. Barry attended Cal Tech and L.A. State and, along with his talented oboist-mote. Sue, will return to the Pasadena area (Huntington Memorial) before embarking on a career in psychiatry. STEPHEN BOROWSKY Burly Steve presents a physiognomy more resembling a piano mover than the accomplished violinist and violist he is, more akin to a wrestler than the polished tennis player he is, more typical of a local teamster official than the sensitive political observer and SAMA president he has been. This taciturn half of the liver team of Edmondson Borowsky began electron microscopy at Po- mona College and has achieved fame in the shadowy world of ultrastructure sufficient to entice him into o research career. STEPHEN BROTMAN Seldom seen and rarely heard from, obliging Steve was known for certain to attend S.C. Medical School only by o select few. Obtaining his B.A. f rom U.C.L.A., Steve ' s transient stealthy sojourns from his parents ' home to Gierson ' s pad proved enigmatic, but served as a preliminary for his exodus to London one summer, his liberation culminating in a Texas-type Army internship. DALE W. CAMPBELL Although Dale is the oldest member of the class, his years have served in the development of an enviable orray of endeavors; these range from professional trumpet-playing and a collection of art to proficiency in Spanish, chess, and writing poetry, to hustling unsuspecting residents in the pool room (and rarely losing). From Occidental College " Big D " extracted a B.A., an M.A., and on amiable spouse named LuAnn. Three summers in the Psychiatry Department, and internship at Good Sam provided a prelude to psychiatry residency. STANLEY CARSON Stan found it necessary to abandon a promising career in baseball in order to attend medical school; however in between tests he could be found on local basketball courts, Softball fields, at U.S.C. football gomes, or even on occasion defending his Air Force ping-pong crown. Stan also found time to extern at Good Sam and do research on emphysema with Dr. Balchum. This seasoned bachelor from U.S.C. undergrad will intern at County hospital before undertaking on ophthalmology residency. JAMES CHIER Cheerful Jim ' s impeccable appearance and autocratic, pre- cise manner reveal his Beverly Hills breeding and Stanford education. This very eligible bachelor has proved himself a capable quarterback and competent head extern (at St. Vincent ' s). Two summers outmonipuloting gamesman Horowitz in the autopsy room and one summer in cardiovascular surgery were sufficient to turn Jim toward o straight medicine internship (at County) and the practice of internal medicine. MOLLIS HSING MING CHANG Holly come from Hawaii to Oberlin College in Ohio before settling in California, where he expects to practice one of the surgical sub-specialties. After enduring a summer of Dr. Rey- nolds ' brand of alcohol metabolism. Holly rewarded himself with marriage to a lovely model named Linda, and a Salerni preceptorship. He may introduce Moh Jong to fellow interns at County; this, incidently, is one of his hobbies, not old girl friends. CHARLES TIFFIN CLEGG Titanic Tif served the cause of pacifism amidst the potent triumvirate of Chier, Rosen and Schottland, comforted by the thought that should he falter his law-student wife Eleanor could act as counsel. Tif good-naturedly reversed field from a summer in pathology and, finding himself unable to fit into Dr. Meehan ' s centrifuge, whirled into Unit III, where he will undoubtedly remain for a psych residency. R. CLARK DAVIS Clark descended from Stanford by way of jobs at Santa Clara County Hospital, St. Vincent ' s Hospital and Soutfiern California Edison Co. to pursue a career in orthopaedic surgery. This seemingly imperturbable individualist added to his list of activities a summer preceptorship, marriage to Sharon, the production of one child, and the repair of automobiles, in addition to attending S.C. Medical School. Clark also remains at County Hospital. RICHARD K. DONELSON This pedantic scholar implanted himself in the historical archives of Stanford University before turning to history-taking and the history of medicine. With a propensity for the esoteric, Dick specializes in totally obscure journal articles, German- speaking County Hospital patients, and playing the horpsicord and recorder. A summer fellov ship at the Pasadena Foundation and a Salerni preceptorship hove preceded a County internship. Reports are wife Linda is expecting. CEDRIC EMERY Cedric is on outdoorsmon of unparalleled virtuosity, often sailing, skiing, camping, or hiking at a pace barely matched by his hearty yet beautiful wife Bronwyn. Congenial Cedric is characterized by his youthful spirit of adventure, zest for the romance of life and exquisite sensitivity as a person. The Emery home has often hosted class functions, some of which provided indelible memories. A former undergraduate and graduate student at U.S.C, Cedric will continue in ophthalmology follow- ing an internship at Huntington Memorial. H. DOUGLAS ENGELHORN Doug will be remembered as one of the least controversial figures from his section of the alphabet. This amiable Phi D.E. from San Diego State plans on private dermatology practice in San Diego, where he may be found rooting for the Chargers or boating with his wife Helen and their daughter. An intermediate step will be a rotating internship at L.A. County, with multiple time-outs for water skiing and other aquatic activities. GREGORY JOSEPH FIRMAN Greg has long borne the burden of being the youngest member of the class, although he has aged considerably during the past four years. Starting his travels at UCLA, Greg externed at St. Joseph ' s Hospital in Syracuse, N.Y., worked at King ' s College Hospital in London, and now returns to a Navy Internship in Chelsea, Mass. Attention all girls: this Nu Sig is still single and willing. RAYMOND J. FRIEDMAN Ray comes to S.C. from crosstown U.C.L.A, with a summer stop in Iowa. His last two summers have been spent in psychiatry, the more recent interrupted for marriage to Jan, who will accompany him to Mt. Sinai Hospital in L.A. for internship. Roy was active in his fraternity. Phi Delta Epsilon, as well as in class, asking questions. DMES. GEPHART This pensive lad returned from Harvard College with botany notes and plans for importing his wife Connie from New England. He may return there with her for general practice or internal medicine. His expertise in botany is well known to campers in Northern California as well as to members of the Avicenna Society, who well remember his delightful discourses on medical herbs. EUGENE D. GIERSON Most of what could be said about this debonair hustler should be read only if accompanied by on adult. By unanamous decree the class determined that the only way to ensure that " U.E. " acted honorably was to make him a member of the Honor Council. This winsome Nu Sigma is known to be fast in several pursuits including carrying a football downfield, sports car driving, and skateboarding. An Occidental grad, " U.E. " lists his number of children as three, but he is probably being modest. No one is certain whether the barefoot intern will go into psysch, path, or surgery, or follow his famous father and specialize in chests. GERALD R. GREENE A very eligible bachelor, Gerry spent three years cooking for Wally, slightly less eligible one. Gerry come from U.C.L.A., but spent his summers in cardiac physiology and monkey-training with the green-suited gang headed by Dr. Meehan. This party- planner for Phi D.E. will remain at County Hospital for internship, followed by more monkey-training under the auspices of the Armed Services. MICHAEL GROTJAHN Mike is as unpredictable as he is stimulating, as free- wheeling as he is pragmatic, as well-known for his skepticism and acerbity as for his pungent jocosity and punctiliousness. After receiving a B.A. from Pomona College, Mike spent two years in Hawaii courtesy of the Navy. He then roamed from Northwestern in psych to U.C. Berkeley in anatomy, and last summer went wayfaring through Europe. Before settling down in psychiatry, Mike will take his attractive spouse Barbara to Son Francisco for a Kaiser internship. CARLGRUSHKIN Carl, the poker-playing partner of Marv, has been seen stalking the halls of Good Sam, venipuncture kit in hand, relentlessly tracking down his victim. Otherwise, this placid future pediatrician may be found in the basement lounge at County, wedged in an obscure corner. Carl is even rumored to be growing a red beard for use in internship at Children ' s Hospital. This U.S.C. graduate, who has retained his bachelorhood, hopes to remain in Southern California for practice. LANCE HENDRICKS Lance ' s zest for sailing, surfing, and diving impelled him to cross the vast water-ways of the Pacific, testing the surf of various islands from Hawaii to Australia, culminating in a Navy internship near the estuaries of Jacksonville, Florida. This former Uclan plans to return to the sea and ski of Southern California and the practice of orthopedics. BERNARD HILBERMAN The next deep, mellifluous voice you hear will be that of this handsome chap who could easily be a leading man in the celluloid industry; he will, however, probably practice internal medicine somewhere along the Pacific Coast, " preferably out of the smog zone. " Bernie ' s intrepidity is demonstrated by his wearing a U.C.L.A. sweatshirt and rooting for Bruin football teams while at U.S.C, not to mention following Lance along the ski slopes. He likes the County Hospital pool and subterranean skateboard courts too much to intern elsewhere. DENNIS L HILL This solid member of the class did his undergraduate work at Westmont College in Santo Barbara. A rugged outdoorsman, Denny will be content if there is a sufficient number of neurolog- ical problems in the High Sierras. Otherwise, he may hove to utilize the victims of his hunting and fishing to continue his research in neuromuscular disease. Wife Kathleen will pace him through internship and 60-second neurological exam in residency at County Hospital. KENNETH M. HOUSE Ken ' s fine, competitive spirit really comes to the fore on the tennis court, at the ping pong table, and on the basketball court, where he excels. The remainder of the time Ken is quiet, modest, and unassuming, while serving as president of Nu Sigma Nu and I.F.C. He attended Occidental College and U.S.C, has worked summers at the Suicide Prevention Center, and will soon be dedicated to the practice of psychiatry. If he and his statuesque spouse Joan are missing from LACGH, Dr. Manning may contaci them at Aspen. MELVIN LOUIS HUNTSINGER This unique fellow was bequeathed to S.C. by San Jose State College. While his lab portners were often engrossed In the statistics of attractive nurses, Mel ' s Involvement with figures focused upon the specifications of hot-rod automobiles, the test-scores of his classmates, and the tax-bracket of his mstruc- tors. Although his obtrusive offlciousness offers no Impediment to patient rapport in pathology, Mel ' s quick mind and Intense curiosity should prove to be assets In this specialty. EDWARD K. JEFFER One is uncertain whether Ed was deported from New York or lured to UCLA by a lovely long-tressed lass named Marsha. Forsaking Columbia University and the funeral business, he attended medical school during half-times of the choose-up basketball games, where his patented one-hand |ump shot proved devastating to the opposition. The fleeting flash and roar of o maroon XKE before the majority had sauntered out of the lecture hall meant that Ed would take in nine holes before dark. The peripatetic Jeffers, Ed and Marsha, were able to perfect their amateur movie making from the far reaches of Alaska to the British Isles. Ed will continue to dominate the basketball court atop LACGH. J. ALLEN JOHNSON Al plans to practice somewhere In God ' s Country, which he defines as between Oregon and Colorado. He will naturally initiate this with an internship at University of Oregon ' s Hospital, accompanied by his demure nurse-mate, Twylah. Although Al is widely known for his tennis and skiing prowess, he possesses lesser talents, such as trapping and selling desert pocket mice. J, STANLY JOHNSON, FR. Stan is uniquely capable of transcending his " beat " world and adroitly " cooling it " with the remainder of society; he is sensitive to the inequities of the latter, and at once sympathetic yet critical of the former. One almost suspects that the thinly- clad, lean figure whose motorcycle speeds away from his recondite " pad " quickly changes uniform in a telephone booth before emerging as the white-coated, urbane Dr. Johnson. This proficient brewer graduated from Amherst College and did graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His skirmish with the Selective Service System is preceded by internship at County. GEORGE E. KABACY George ' s energetic enthusiasm in every endeavor is well exemplified by his globe-spanning research activities. For a year following graduation from U.S.C. George was in exile at as unlikely a location as the North Pole; proving his adaptability to extremes of environment, he spent last summer on the hospital ship HOPE in Guinea, Africa. In the interim he found time to ploy tennis, marry Mary, dodge Hodgman, fence with Spears, and decide on a career in Ob-Gyn. ROBERT KADAS This unobtrusive charter member of the KKKK has demon- strated his individuality by making his internship at County Hospital straight pediatrics. Bob ' s talents extend from be- friending little children to putting the soft restraints on George. An active member of Phi Delta Epsilon, this recruit from U.C.L.A. is one of the few men whose wife shares his interest in baseball, since Margo works for the California Angels. MARK FREDRIC KAUFMAN Mark ' s dorsal aspect was a familiar sight slipping anxiously to a ring-side vantage point of a laboratory demonstration or aggressively accosting an instructor after lecture. Mark obtained his B.S. from the University of Chicago, and has done research in kidney disease in preparation for a career in urology, following an internship at County Hospital. He has been active for two years collecting the money from Phi Delta Epsilon members, and, along with his social-worker wife Fran, plans to reside in Southern California. MICHAEL T.KENNEDY Mike ' s sincere unassuming manner and carefully controlled aggressiveness, plus the rare combination of a highly retentive memory and incisively analytic mind, all integrated with incredi- ble efficiency provide the formula for Mike ' s enormous accom- plishments, both academic and otherwise. This pragmatic Trojan is as comfortable presiding over the Student Council as camping at favorite hunting and fishing retreats with helpmate Irene and Mike Jr. Although he spent a summer pursuing Lukocytes, Mike ' s future will be in thoracic surgery. WAYNE R. KIDDER Serendipity accurately classifies the meeting of this urbane ectomorph with d cute young nurse in the halls of County Hospital. Wayne and Joan plan to remain at LACGH for internship and internal medicine. Wayne ' s two summers with Dr. Reynolds gave this Nu Sig a slight edge over Hollis in the liver disease polemics. Wayne previously attended U.S.C. and Stan- ford. STUART LANSON Stu has spent much of medical school bugged by his tropical fish and hooked by his hobby, photography. U.C.LA. furnished him with experience in renal physiology, and his diminutive better half, Felice, who has decided to change swimming pools, while Stu interns at County. This Phi D.E. is inclined toward E.N.T. and getting drunk at parties. KELVIN LEE A scholarly if not compulsive student out of the chemistry labs at Stanford, Kal has the distinction of being able to settle his chess disputes with the use of judo; he claims a brown belt in the latter and a draw with Bobby Fischer in the former. Kal, also known to converse with Dr. Berne in Chinese and discourse with almost anyone on Viet Nam, will travel to Sacramento County General for internship. MAYNARD LEVENICK For such a corpulent fellow Maynard has an uncanny ability to steathily stalk the subject for his ubiquitous camera or implant himself in the front row of a demonstration, thereby obstructing all views except that from the ceiling. His patient write-ups are often so voluminous as to be mistaken for the old chart. Maynard probably improved his chess game during Operation Sacktime for the Jolly Green Giant. This Uclon also interns at LACGH. MARVIN LEVENSON Marv has become fully integrated into the class despite the mysterious manner in which he began S.C. Medical School as a write-in vote on the original class list. Marvin reputedly was recruited from the University of Chicago cord-playing team and was quickly turned over to Grotjohn and Grushkin for further seasoning. He once interrupted o cord game long enough to marry Nancy. After spending a summer in ophthalmology, Marv will take a straight medicine internship at LACGH. JOHNB. MAYLARD John is a remarkably self-sufficient bachelor who periodically descends from the (San Francisco) Bay area just long enough to attend classes at S.C. He obtained his B.S. from Stanford and has served clerkships at Letterman Hospital and the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, England. This Nu Sig is distinguished by his rapid-fire note-taking, as well as for his quick smile and affinity for the out-doors (back-packing, sailing, camping). After an internship at County, John will study internal medicine, probably specializing in cardiology. HASSAN A MOHAGHEGH Hoss ' social progress as a recent addition to the class was impeded not so much by his spending the pre-clinical years at Wayne State Med School as by the impossibility of pronouncing his name. Hass probably lost much of his Hollywood Pres externship earnings at the Cummings Street poker parlor. Although his soccer talents remain untapped at LACGH, this Nu Sig will continue his pursuit of the student nurses before returning to his native Iron to practice. RICHARD H. NALICK This affable fellow has attended most of the local educa- tional institutions , including another medical school, before determining to obtain his clinical experience at U.S.C. One is not certain whether Dick ' s transfer was to rescue his attractive wife Mary from the admirers frequenting the Student Affairs Office or to facilitate his research with Dr. Langmeade. His work in Obstetrics still proved worthwhile, however resulting in his choice of specialty as well as a baby boy PETER NASH Although Peter gives the appearance of being less well- developed and well-nourished than most County Hospital pa- tients, he is one of the few people with sufficient fortitude to take on Dr. Steinfeld, Governor Wallace, the Ku Klux Klan, and the Selective Service System all within a period of two years. Peter ' s highly individualistic activities include attending Reed College, fighting for Human Rights, lab teching, playing the flute, making rabbit stew from the hapless victims of the pharmacology experiments, and interning at Highland Alameda Hospital. DONALD JOHN NORQUIST Don has a certain air of " cool " both on and off the athletic field, the lithe, lean figure of this superb natural athlete quietly copping the class crown in tennis, ping pong and handball, as well as gracefully descending the slopes of Mammoth. This Stanford-U.S.C. product has worked in anesthesia, lob teching, and at Orthopedic Hospital. The precision of this Nu Sig should lend toward his future practice of orthopedics. Don and pert, petite Bonnie plan to reside in Pasadena. WILLIAM FREDRICK NORTHRUP III Bill virtually epitomizes the all-round oll-American youth. A flashing smile, imperturbable geniality, perpetual buoyancy, and impeccable work habits characterize this athletic former Uclan. Bill will dissolve the partnership of Northrup and Sisel, renowned from Good Sam and Good Hope to City of Hope, by pursuing his surgery career at the University of California Hospital in San Francisco. Although Bill will be accompanied by his stately mate, Joanne, he will leave Ron his old yellow V.W. ROBERT LEE OLDHAM Stentorian Bob enshrined himself in the annals of externship history by setting the all-time record for total number of H P ' s in a single evening at St. Vincent ' s Hospital. This good-natured, loquacious chap emanates from the chemistry laboratories of U.C. Santa Barbara and the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Lab. He maintains contact with the test tube world through his chemist spouse Susan, but Bob looks forward to a career in neurosurgery. IRWIN MARSHALL POSTMAN This suave, erudite fellow resigned his leadership of the bachelor club during the final lap of medical school, victory being claimed by an exotic miss named Bonnie. Undaunted by years of search, research (in pharmacology at U.C.L.A.), armed service, writing, fishing, hunting, and skiing. Marsh has settled into on internship at L.A. County, and may yet finalize his plans somewhere within the broad confines of medicine. BEN PRINS That Ben is a Prins of a fellow in more than one sense is evidenced by his unselfish if not self-sacrificing efforts to keep unity within a class of individuals especially in his capacity as Junior Class president. Ben and his favorite nurse Sharen have blessed the world with one little Prins, and another in the offering. Fortified with his lab tech experience at Cedars and a Salerni precepforship in pathology, this University of Redlands graduate will emigrate to Fresno County Hospital for internship, mixed with some hunting and fishing. ALBERT EDWARD RAITT, JR. Al managed to depart from Northern California just long enough to complete the curriculum at S.C. Medical School. He attended University of the Pacific with his wife Sue, and before returning to the hunting and fishing grounds up North will stop off at Presbyterian Hospital in San Francisco. Summers have been spent in his field of interest, psychiatry, at LACGH and Mendocino State Hospital, as well as at local tennis courts and golf links. JOSEPH REISS Although Joe ' s relationship to the medical publication beor- ing the some name is purely coincidental, as was his attendance at some of the lectures, he is easily the class socialite. Only car trouble limited his activities which extended from Palm Springs to the Beverly Hills Hotel to Hawaii. This former U.S.C. undergrad- uate spent summers in psych and at the beach; he boycotted the Matching Program but finally contracted with Highland Alameda in Oakland for internship. JOSEPH LOUIS ROMOLO Joe IS living proof that nice guys con still succeed in medical school. U.S.C. ' s own |unior wine-maker has soberly spent his summers in his father ' s vineyards, after clearing the debris from the most recent class party. This unassuming Nu Sig will follow the crowd to LACGH for internship before deciding what and where he will practice in Southern California. MICHAEL ROSEN Mike is widely known as one of the quickest wits in the West. His incessant flow of quips eased many a tense moment for his classmates, and provided welcome relief from the tedium of seemingly interminable lectures. No one could quite comprehend Mike ' s continual retreats back to his native Arizona until one summer he returned with a sweet, dark-haired lass. Mike will take Judy, his cello, guitar, Pomona education, and dog-eared Survey manuals back to the Phoenix desert for internship at St. Joseph ' s Hospital and residency in pediatrics. PETER ROSEN A veritable human dynamo of perpetual motion, " the Rabbit " IS one of the rare people capable of drawing upon his encyclopedic storehouse of factual knowledge with sufficient alacrity and precision so as to parry successfully leonine Dr. Reynolds. Pete also possesses a not inconsiderable athletic aptitude, wide range of interests, and congenial personality that belie his scholarly habits. Originally from the East, this U.S.C. grod will intern at Johns Hopkins before entering on academic career in internal medicine. BENJAMIN L. ROSIN Big Ben found himself a notable in football circles by going to medical school and a celebrity in medical school by playing football at " Southern Cal. " Ethical behavior became assured when this amicable behemoth represented the Honor Council. An enthusiastic Nu Sig, Ben found to his liking the Pathology Department as well as on English nurse, Elaine. He can now look forward to on internship at County and a new addition to his family. R. EDWARD SANCHEZ This most prolific member of the class is a natural for pediatrics considering his captivating personality and small budding practice; however, internal medicine in the San Gabriel area will undoubtedly claim him. Ed met his charming wife Beverly at Stanford University, and will intern at L.A. County. As senior class president, student government officer, intramural sportsman, extern, and laboratory technologist, Ed has worked tirelessly throughout medical school. JOHN ROBERT SCHOTTLAND A cloud of aromatic pipe smoke, scattered paperbacks ranging from Plato to John Stuart Mill, stacks of Annals or Internal Medicine, the profane mutterings of his annihilated adversaries, the collective tremor of intimidated neophyte clinical clerks, and the doctrinaire pedagogics emanating from o kneelength white frocked figure signify the presence of Dr. Schottland. The impact of John ' s powerful rhetoric and ency- clopedic knowledge will next be felt by internists at Kings County Hospital in Seattle. JOHN CUTLER SHERSHOW This erudite man of letters is one of the staunch political liberals of the class, often found passionately yet eloquently defending his views, undoubtedly derived in port from his days as a ffarvard undergraduate, ffis humanism undaunted by the sometimes oppressive onslaught of medical minutiae to be memorized. Jack emerged a dedicated physician. fHe and petite Bonnie toured Europe between externships, before settling into parenthood. RONALD J. SISEL Ron has been a Tro|an athletic supporter of unsurpassed zeal for at least eight years. He could be found enthusiastically conducting post-mortems on S.C, football games from the dining room at Good Samaritan to Taegu, South Korea, to the tumor surgery table at City of Hope. Somehow this debonair Nu Sig will manage to endure on internship and surgery residency at LACGH without Bill Northrup, DONALD P. SPEER This mature, reserved Stanford graduate has spent a sizable portion of the post several years as a graduate student and researcher (in the orthopedics and bone physiology laboratories) at U.C.L.A. Although Don has produced a proliferation of publications, he has aslo managed to keep pace with Sanchez in the progeny department, while vivacious wife Laurel has pre- sided over the Wives Club. Don returns to U.C.L.A. for a straight surgery internship, after which his impeccable order will serve him well in his chosen field of orthopedics. MICHAELS. STOCK Stocky Mike is gathering courage for the orthopedic res- idency at County during his internship there; he bade farewell to the outside world with a European trip last summer, from which his souvenir remains a TR-4. This two-year veteran of insulin assays with Dr. Tranquada found his vivacious wife Doreen while at U.C. Berkeley, he barely managed to graduate before joining the ranks of fatherhood. D AVID LYLESTOKESBARY Casual Stokes quietly ascended to positions of power as party boss at Nu Sig, labor leader at Hollywood Presbyterian, and Baron of Cummings Street. This well-rounded Stanford product would be as much at home in Jopan and Finland as on the slopes of Aspen or sailing at Newport. Dave has an uncanny knack for accomplishing things almost effortlessly. This eligible bachelor will also intern at LACGff. JOHN W. THOMAS, III This taciturn self-styled individualist is o man of manifold talents ranging from conducting his own small-scale VW-Porche agency to competing with Pabst ' brewery to conversing fluently with Spanish-speaking patients. After two summers in psychiatry, mustachioed John and multi-lingual spouse Vera pilgrimaged across Europe. Despite his apparent affinity for the (San Francisco) Bay area, John will rotate through internship at County. STUART H. TUBIS After a couple decades of Pfiilodelphia environs, Stu stuffed fiis little red Sprite with his lovely wife Anita, his B.A. and M.A. degrees from Hoverford College and Harvard University, his well-worn tennis racket and Lilliputian book of piano music, and headed West. Stopping off in the San Francisco area for a term of teaching college chemistry before settling in Los Angeles, he has managed to maintain interest in education under the auspices of Dr. Abrahamson. Stu found the externship at Good Sam sufficiently to his liking to stay another year, while the summer fellowship in psychiatry clinched a career in this field. C.PHILLIP WEAVER A native Californion, taciturn Phil decided to see the East by attending medical school in Philadelphia before transferring to U.S.C. He earned his A.B. degree at Stanford University and intends to return to the San Francisco area accompanied by wife Nan and daughter Jennifer to practice a specialty which may be influenced by his summer research in the Obstetrics Department. Phil will intern at L.A. County. DARRYLWONG Daryl quickly proved to be a most welcome addition to the class, transferring from Howard Medical School, after under- graduate days at University of the Pacific. Daryl ' s hallmarks are his pipe, transistor stethescope, and attractive wife Jadine. Although he spent two summers in psychiatry, he will prove his contention that " women really do prefer Chinese obstetricians " by entering this specialty after an internship at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco. honors ALPHA OMEGA ALPHA MEDICAL HONOR SOCIETY: The National Medical School Honorary Society candidates are chosen by the Faculty for their scho- lastic achievement.

Student Activities have been productive to a degree un- known in past years or perhaps in other medical schools. There was no real leader ond no really planned program; rather there was a surge of student interest in the areas of curriculum, social problems, medical economics and the distribution of medical resources. Michael Kennedy " Hey, you guys, we ' re discussing importont b student counci The past year has been a remarkable one for the USC Medical School and for the Class of 1966. Student activities have been productive to a degree unknown in past years or perhaps in other medical schools. It has been exciting to be associated with such a student group and challenging to be in a position of responsibility. There has been no real leader and no really planned program; rather there has been a surge of student interest in areas of curriculum, social problems, medical economics and the distribution of medical resources. All areas of political and philosophical emphasis have been represented. The fact that students have been doing something about the problems they see rather than remaining only critics of the efforts of others is the most promising thing of all. The student government has tried to provide support, advice, and some organization on which all may depend. We feel that we have succeeded in part and hope that those who follow us will continue to take the attitude that it is less the role of student government to judge than to guide and support all student groups. The student council has provided a forum in which all groups, ad hoc, de jure, or whatever, may seek support. We hove also accomplished certain things of our own initiative such as the dependents health insurance program. Looking back it has been a good year with prospects for better to come. Michael T. Kennedy ASSM President 1965-1966 honor council The Honor Spirit is an integral part of the medical profession and a difficult subject to delineate. A personal dedication to the spirit of ethical concern is the basis of this code. At USC the Honor Spirit is a part of our educat ional structure to prepare the student in accepting this tradition. The Honor Council is formed from representatives of each doss so that a body will be present to voice the students ethical viev s and to act as a liaison with the faculty. In addition, this council accepts the responsibility of an executive and judiciary body handling violations of the Honor Code. It was the attempt of the council this year to change the attitude regarding the Honor Spirit from one of negative dictum to positive affirmation. The constitution and oath were rewritten accordingly and stress the positive aspects of this code. A class in medical ethics has been organized and will begin next semester. It is the hope of this council this class in ethics will help perpetuate this essentially unwritten code by which we practice.

The staff of the 1966 Asklepiad set out to accomplish this with certain reservations. They meant to represent the spirit of this USC medical year but to express the variable moods of universal medicine as well. The book was designed, in a sense, as a tableau of vignettes so that each page of the class and activities section would be an accurate photographic statement of the year ' s happenings but presented incompletely so as to form o vague stimulus to the reader, enabling him to construct the background according to his own experience. Special attention was given to design and format but an attempt was mode to avoid symmetry, for memory is chaotic and assymetrical and the primary purpose of this book is to create an incentive for memory. The book is meant for each of you, ten years from its printing, so that, then, you may look back and remember these days, treated with humor but not farcically and looked upon seriously but not stodgily. 114 BORBORYGMI, the USC Medical Student Journal, was created to promote free communication and expression among medical students by stimulating discussion and the intelligent exchange of ideas. Within two years after its first issue appeared, BOR- BORYGMI has become a tradition at USC Medical School. Despised by some, praised by others, BORBORYGMI nonetheless published the writing of 51 authors in the year ' s 86 pages. It has been misquoted in Saturday Review, (June 25) written to by Look, and imitated throughout the country (witness the UCLA campus, where the SAMA chapter has begun publishing Plexus.) BORBORYGMI was again distributed to leading medical schools in the United States and Canada, USC faculty members, and interested members of the medical community, as well as to USC students. Although the art editor ' s ambitions continually threat- ened to outstrip the resulting financial support, somehow 1200 copies of several issues emerged, rather than the normal 1 000. Under Howard Charman ' s devoted leadership, the perm anent editorial staff of Tom Brod, Rich Cobden, and Bob Stebbins survived five hectic sessions of " final paste-up " with sufficient imagination and spirit to moke a major innovation in the year ' s final issue, presenting a symposium which explored in depth various aspects of the drug problem. BORBORYGMI continues to receive praise from throughout the country. Its spirit of integrity and serious involvement have inspired other USC efforts toward becoming one of the nation ' s leading medical centers and an innovator in the realm of student-inspired medical education. Howard Char 115 Medical Student Forum This year was very exciting and full for the USC Medical Student Forum. The Forum has now become a permanent activity of the students. Dr. Benjamin Spock ' s three day visit to our school was one of the highlights of the Forum ' s two year history. Our experience of two years shows us that students can bring to our medical school speakers and teachers who can inform and inspire us. We are the only medical school with such a student- run Forum. But we will not allow our obvious pride in the Forum to keep us from trying to improve it in the future. STUDENT FORUM COMMITTEE 1965-66 Stephen S.

As we look toward the next few years of internship and residency. I remember not so long ago unknown situations creating uncertainty. The medical school acceptance brought joys and fears; How little I knew how much I woukj enjoy these years. The journey is hard, its hours long; One becomes independent, and invariably, strong. The first years cadaver, Rosie by name, became more important, I felt it a shame. Though she had much to teach him, I ' m certainly sure, I felt so left out, and I found no cure. The second year I tremble to remember— Toils and hardships tiegan in September. Supplies, tx)oks, and instruments were more than imaginable Shelter and food became almost unmanagable. I received a true education during the third year Meanings of M.I., S.G.O.T., C.V A. were familiar to my ear. My concern followed psychiatry, diabetes and neurology- Alas, when I was ill, I was given a pill for my very own " ology " . The fourth year we find tenure almost completed; Patients now will wait to be treated. With internship nearing we face new horizons— With commencement but a step in the cycle. As we kxjk toward the next years of internship and residency— I remember not so long ago- unknown situations creating uncertainty.

Our chapter at use has seen a new resurgence of activity this year with the pledging of several new freshmen w ho have demonstrated their enthusiasm for carrying on the traditions of the organization. Medical fraternities were established with the intention of providing on association of friendship, dedication and profes- sional advancement. Phi Chi has strived toward this end. 120 $AE phi delta epsilon Total variety of experience was the form taken by Phi Delta Epsilon medical fraternity this season. The activities calendar scheduled the whole series from stag dinners and magic acts to gambling parties. Phi D ' s strength has long rested in its supporting alumni and this year was no exception. With the backing of recent and past graduates, the members enjoyed a successful and satisfying year. Phi D ' s pride lies in its well balanced social program and a membership active in student affairs. 121 NL N nu Sigma nu Nu Sigma Nu again hod a slam bong year, easily living up to its notorious reputation as being the most active fraternity on campus. This was substantiated by both the quality and quantity of our social events, which occurred on the average of once every two weeks. This past year marked a milestone for us in that three female students joined seventy other " brothers " as social affili- ates. We started the year enthu siastically by having our Annual Rush Party. Fortunately it was held at the Los Angeles Foundation of Otology because the loud, vibrating bond resulted in many tympanic traumas. Following the Rush Party, a T.G.I.F., and a Halloween Party, we played the frosh in our Annual Freshman- Nu Sig Football Gome. Unfortunately this was the first time in many years that we went down in defeat; however, the situation was rectified since the star football players on the freshman team subsequently pledged our fraternity. Next come our " Ski Party " for which we bought a ton of snow from snow manufacturing company. The evening was high- lighted by a wild skate board contest. Following this we ended our pre-Christmas season by having a Dessert Exchange with U.S.C. ' s Delta Gamma Sorority and a Christmas Party. In January we had our Pledge Initiation Ceremony, a T.G.I.F., and on evening of dinner and cocktails with the attending staff of Huntington Memorial Hospital. The brothers were kept busy in February with a Pre-party for the school ' s annual Valentine ' s Day Dance and an exchange with Oxy ' s Delta Sorority. March was highlighted by a Ski Week-end at Mammoth. We stayed at Lyman Rust ' s chalet and Dave Stokesbary ' s cabin. Fortunately no broken bones. We also had a T.G.I.F. and a " Come-in Something You Wouldn ' t Be Caught Dead In " Party. Stokesbary come as a pregnant woman and it was too much. In April we sponsored on old fashioned Beer Bust at the Eastside Brewery for the entire student body. We also had a T.G.I.F. with the student nurses. Nu Sig ' s closed out the year with a Tohitian Luau in Newport Beach. We all remember the fantastic Tohitian dinner we hod, but not much after that because our special " islander punch " was served after dinner. Outgoing President Ken House and Vice-President Dave Stokes- bary were guaranteed that Nu Sigma Nu ' s notorious reputation will continue by the election of John House as President, Rich Anderson as Vice-President, and Chuck Chaffee as Social Chairman for next year. 122 Phi Rho Sigma ' s unique social program proved successful in attracting the largest pledge class of the four USC medical fraternities on the campus this year. Delta chapter traditionally has emphasized a three-fold program of social, professional, and post-graduate activities. Their ambitious schedule has been realized through the enthusiastic support of Phi Sig alumni. The season began this year, as m the past, with the annual dinner dance at the Bel Air Boy Club. This lazy summer night is given as a gift to the chapter by Dr. Clifford Cherry. The year came alive v ith the raucous, color filled rush function which was a loud, drunken, out of hand discotheque dance complete with the girl in a cage produced on the terrace of the Hollywood hills ' home of Dr. F. Turnbull. The year developed with other good times including the annual all-night New Year ' s Eve party and breakfast and the Las Vegas gambling night held in the spring as well as many other informal functions. However, Phi Sig remains most self satisfied with its professional program of monthly dinner meetings and medical or para-medicol lectures. This one-of-a-kind program featured the curious, the bizzare, the stimulating and the inspirational aspects of medical practice. This year, it included talks by a lawyer-doctor on malpractice suits from the prosecutors point of view; what goes on behind the lines in the dean ' s office; personal reminiscences by the Los Angeles County Coroner; the Krebiozen trials by the sole medical witness; and a discussion of the relative advantages of a County Hospital internship or a private hospital service. The members of Phi Rho Sigma do not disassociate themselves after graduation. The special character of the fraternity lies in the lifelong friendships which are established here over the years. A good part of the credit for this attitude belongs to Dr. Fran Guinney who has given the chapter continuity for many years as its advisor. His own feelings toward the brotherhood have created the special mood for which the members who hove been privileged to know him will always be grateful. phi rho sigma commencement • the respon • - " " A M This day signifies a number of things to us. It completes another four year cycle of medical education at USC. I don ' t believe that any two classes of medical students are given just the same education.

We are all individuals and we shall go our separate ways tomorrow . . . buj it seems to me that as a class we accomplished many things and have been good comrades. Michael Kennedy, A.S.S.M. President so many years of hope and It is difficult to express what is in my own mind today — and how much more so to attempt to speak for my classmates. So many years of hope and ambition ore represented here — The parents who sit here today — The wives, long suffering and endlessly patient with late dinners — and tight budgets — and broken dates — they know how many years we have waited for this day. This day signifies a number of things to us. It completes another four year cycle of medical education at USC. I don ' t believe that any two dosses of medical students are give n just the some education. Medicine changes too much from year to year. To the new graduate this fact is brought home by contemplation of the number of his textbooks which hove come out in new editions since he acquired them. Since we have been in medical school the Starr-Edwards valve has come into wide use, the Vinco Alkaloids have changed the prognosis of some childhood cancers. Methotrexate has revolutionized the status of Chorio- carcinoma, Human Growth Hormone and Calcitonin have been isolated and promise great things in Endocrinology, 5FU and the thiosemicarbazone derivatives offer the first opportunity for treatment of viral disease. We ore all aware of the promise of the future but the speed with which it will be upon us is awesome. Dennis Hill ond his family Kenneth House and Grandfother John Ze andhisfomily ambition are represented here From this date our knowledge will begin to decoy and unless we keep up — the halflife of our medical education will be about five years — perhaps less. Our responsibility is clear — self education. We con no longer depend upon others to set standards for us. No more tests — well perhaps one more — . From this date we must test ourselves and grade ourselves — and if we foil? — We must not foil. On our first day of medical school this class was described as one of great potential. The record of academic achievement by its members was unequaled by any previous class and the variety of interests and accomplishments was remarkable. It is not yet possible to judge how well the potential has been realized — comparisons are not really justified. The coming years, however, are certain to demand much of medicine. The rapid advances in therapy as they become available will require determined study by every doctor to provide adequate medical care. The vast change in social and economic aspects of medicine which seem imminent will require wisdom and judge- ment of a sort not easily measured in medical school. It is my belief that here — in on area not yet clearly defined — the challenge will come — and it may be that the class of 1966 will find here the fulfillment of its great potential. 127 a moment wealways will remember M Ij fefe " ' 1 9 1 m 1 , = if n ■ ' 1 wiliiam D.
