iViuUlUilNJl TERRA MARIAE MEDICUS Copyright May 1950 WILBERT HARDING McELVAIN ! i 1 h 2 1 ij : _. ' p 1 1 1 . 1 L I 1 A Presented By The Graduating Classes Of The University of Maryland School of Medicine and School of Nursing Baltimore, Maryland 1950 When the republic was but eighteen years of age and Thomas Jefferson was yet President the University of Maryland School of Medicine had its beginnings in a law enacted by the State Legislature. The population of Baltimore was less than thirty thousand, and there were but four other medical schools in existence in this country. Seven students enrolled for the first session and classes were held in various rented and private buildings. Because of the inadequacy of these structures and active public resistance to attempts at anatomical dissection and demonstration, the need for a permanent location soon became acute. A lottery was authorized by the legislature and bond was supplied by faculty members and public spirited citizens. Plans were drawn up by R. Carey Long, an eminent architect of the times, and construction of the present Pantheonesque edifice was begun in 1811 with the Revolutionary hero. Col. John Eager Howard, laying the cornerstone. The building was occupied in 1812-1813 and represents today the oldest building in the United States from which the degree Doctor of Medi- cine has been granted annually since its inception. It stands today, a monu- ment to its sons who have devoted their lives to the teaching and practice of medicine, and an inspiration to each new generation of graduates. Re- plete with legend and steeped in tradition, in its solid permanency it bids well to endure for centuries. The close of this four year period of study will signal the division of a closely knit class into separate careers of medical practice, in many cases so far away that future reunion will be improbable, if not impossible. Memories of malodorous cadavers, known quite intimately to be sure; memories of mercilous exams; mem- ories of those pseudo-formal dances and frankly informal beer parties; memories of professors whose lives are dedicated to the teaching of medi- cine; these would perhaps fade as time all too hastily consumes us, if it were not for a text of this sort to bring back the life we knew as as- pirants to the degree Doctor of Medi- cine. Assuming literary license, we hav treated with flippancy personalities, specialties, and ideals. Let it be un- derstood without question that our de- votion and respect for our confreres, teachers, and profession is beyond re- proach. ■k il h si ' iJ THIS BOOK, AND THE LIVES OF THE MANY PERSONS REPRESENTED HEREIN, ARE DEDICATED TO THE SPIRIT OF MEDI- CINE SO GRACEFULLY DESCRIBED IN THE OATH OF HIPPOCRATES. toollo.,|fa jgb and ;€scuIapia5‘ Heakh®M " M6aDth god[s3 goddesses that aocondiiiP to niy abilatyS. j udgement, . . this stlpulatai-tx) reckon him who tau t me this ecjiallydeartome as ng parents to share my substance ' th him ' rrlieve his necessities jfnequii ; to look upon his oflspnrgTn the same footing as niy own hrothersSlo teach them this Art r if they sha!

PINCOFFS, B.S., M.D. Professor of Medicine H. BOYD WYLIE, M.D. UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE BALTIMORE I, MARYLAND OFFICE OF THE DEAN Out of the shadows of war and in the wake of victory came a freshman class composed chiefly of those who had done their part toward winning World War II Largely the class was made up of mature men and women, both veterans and non-veterans From the start this class of 1950 has given me the impres- sion of stability, loyalty to its school, cooperation with the administration, and a humane interest in the welfare of its schoolmates In addition, it has manifested an awareness of the responsibilities of its profession to society through its seriousness and degree of accomplishment To these men and women of 1950 I extend ny sincere good wishes for their happiness and feel safe in predicting their success as physicians The S enior Class Vice President LOUIS GUY CH ELTON Student Council THOMAS F. LEWIS Student Council STANLEY W. HENSON 4ad%ccu 4tidex € Entomology (bugs to the rest of us) has always fascinated Andy, who is a native Baltimorean, and he still claims it as his favorite hobby. He left the city on an Army conducted excursion tour in May of ' 43 and re- turned in ' 45 after taking some pre-medical training at The Citadel. In 1946 he acquired an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University. Past sum- mers have been spent at Seton Institute and West Baltimore General Hos- pital. Andy will intern at Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore and then go into general practice with the idea of later specializing in pediatrics or internal medicine. September 10, 1919 marked the birth of a man whose desire to become o streetcar conductor has been suppressed (except on occasion) by on even greater desire to assume o place in medicine. He attended John Carroll University, Wagner College and the University of Buffalo for his pre- med training. John served in the Army Medical Department for 5 years os o medical technician. On June 4, 1945 in Neosho, Missouri, he and Jeon Agnes Moickle joined hands and the blend has produced John Moickle, 3, and Martha Kay, 1. John has spent his summers working in state parks and dabbling at his hobbies of wood working and hunting. He will intern at Norfolk, Virginia with the U.S. Public Health Service. Charlie was chipped off the " neurogenic bloc " on May 30, 1922 in Baltimore, Maryland. He attended both Princeton and Loyola College of Baltimore, receiving a B.S. from the latter in 1944. From then until August 30, 1946 he was a combatless, combat correspondent for the U.S. Marines. Further favoring his literary bent his first vacation was spent as editor of a New Jersey weekly. Subsequent vacations were occupied with an OB externship at Baltimore City Hospitals and as an extern in the University Hospital Accident Room, and a substitute intern also at the University, where after graduation he will serve his internship. On Ocfober 10, 1922, in Baltimore, Mary first opened her wide eyes and emitted a scream of protest. A physician ' s daughter, her future was from the start predestined to be that of the stethescope and percussion ham- mer. She took her pre-med at the College of Notre Dame, and in 1943 was awarded the B.A. degree. Mary joined our class in the third year following a years leave of absence during which she worked in the laboratory of the Rosewood Training School. She has returned there each summer to dabble in porphyria research. The Christmas Vacation of 1949 will long be remembered by Mary, for that too short vacation was consumed by a much too long wedding ceremony and a much too short honeymoon, spent with George Ward Barstow, a student of agriculture at College Park. Mary will intern at Mercy Hospital here in Baltimore. 0€im€um An outspoken individualist from Rahway, New Jersey, Bill attended Rutgers University and the University of Maryland before joining the class. On June 2, 1945 in Cambridge, Maryland he married Mary Howard Sim- mons, and to odd some zest to life there are Mary Howard, 2, and Wilbur Nelson, Jr. In his summers. Bill and his crew cut have pushed ice cream sales for Good Humors, and catheters for the University Hospital. A Delta Upsilon, he will intern at University Hospitol and whenever finding time and winds favorable, will continue to indulge his passion for sailing in local waters; or if the breezes foil, he will pursue his well known nimrodic tendencies. Jay was born on November 16, 1927, a noisy, uninhibited Id in pixil- loted Washington, D.C. Perhaps his stork hod o Freudian bent, at any rote by the time he had completed his pre-med studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Jay hod decided he wanted to unsnarl superegos. His varied summer activities included the role of camp doctor to a bunch of young hellions bent on self destruction. Wearing a quite conventional gleam in his eye. Jay married Lynne G. Goldsweig on June 5, 1949. Treasurer and Senator of Phi Delto Epsilon, he will intern at Gollinger Municipal Hospital in Washington, D.C.; and after the necessary additional troining Jay will prod about amid Ids, Egos, Superegos, and income tox forms in his psychia- tric office. €inicut " Bleek " arrived in Los Angeles, California on June 2, 1926, sons sport coot or dork glosses, but very suitobly dressed for the beach. This explains, no doubt, why he attended U.C.L.A., become o summertime life- guard, and, is frankly mod about those west coost beoches: swimming, borrocudos, borecuties et ol. A member of Nu Sigmo Nu ond Alpha Omego Alpha, " Bleek " did his externship stint at Sonto Monica Hospitol, Colif. When he returns to the west coast and Los Angeles County Hospital for his internship he will nonetheless continue to have local ties because Dr. Betty Storm from Frederick Md. will help him pack his sport coots and moke his morning coffee after June 1950, as ' ' Betty Storm Bleecker, M.D. " %€utci On January 14, 1925, Frank looked his ma ' s obstretician squarely in the eye as he shouldered his way into the center of things in Luke, Md. Always on the look out he served as an Army Ground Forces ' Rador Operator in 1943 and 1944. After attending Cornell University in 1944 Fronk went on to complete his pre-med at the University of Marylond. Both a Sigma Alpha Epsilon and a Nu Sigma Nu, Frank kept busy sum- mers looking things over as an extern at the Potomac Valley Hospital in Keyser, West Virginia in ' 46 and ' 48 and the Pennisula General Hospital, Salisbury, Maryland in ' 49. Always one to know his own mind Fronk intends, after an internship at the University Hospital to do general practice, or surgery, or internol medicine, although his special interest in psychiatry. ct i €Ufmo4td C%. " Brad " was just a little " tacker " when he checked into Washington, D.C. on August 10, 1921. Nailing down a B.S. at the University of Mary- land, Brad then took time out for three years in the Navy — back when they sailed their ships on water — before joining the gang in 1946. Vice Presi- dent and House Manager of the Nu Sigma Nu, Brad was sharp as a tack when he married artistic, honey-haired Nancy June Ferneyhough August 13, 1949 in Riverdale, Maryland where he now " hangs his hat " . A Casualty Hospital, Washington, D.C., extern last summer. Brad will intern at the University Hospital and then true to his beginning will do a general practice in Washington, D.C. c ecUct Since July 16, 1924 Joe has made this monumental city his home town. He attended St. Briget ' s School, Loyola High School, and graduated from Loyola College with a B.S. degree. A past president of Nu Sigma Nu, Joe was an Alpha Sigma Nu at Loyola and a Phi Delta Theta at College Park. An outdoor man, he enjoys hunting and fishing and is of course properly appreciative of Chesapeake Bay beauties. Joe spent last summer as a junior intern at University Hospital and will return this year. The moral to this story is, if one is born here, the son of a physician in prac- tice here, if one were raised here, attended school here and interned here, one might just as well practise here: which Joe has every intention of doing. " Burk " first voiced his interest in things July 20, 1926, at Cumber- land, Maryland. While garnering a B.S. at St. Francis Callege, Loretto, Pennsylvania and a smattering of the U.S. Pharmacopeo at the University of Maryland School of Pharmocy, Burk developed a yen for basketball, football, fishing, and aquatic sports in which he hos found little time to indulge these last four years. A member af Nu Sigma Nu while in medical school, Fred served as Historian of that fraternity in 1948 - 1949. His summers recently past have been occupied with junior internships at Cas- ualty Hospital Washington, D.C. and the Relay Sanitarium with an occas- sional fling at Issac-Waltonish relaxation along the local streams. An eligi- ble bachelor as we go to press, Burk hopes, following an internship at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, to study surgery and then head for Cumberlond, which he still calls home. Born a Baltimorean on May 14, 1923, Guy completed his premed studies at Springfield College, Gettysburg College, and the University of Maryland. After serving as an Armed Forces Radio Announcer for the Navy, Guy married Alice K. Graybill on September 15, 1945. Mrs. Chelton is an M.D. also, but the rumor that Guy uses his wife ' s notes is a foul canard! He has proven his scholastic ability beyond a shadow of a doubt both by being selected for Alpha Omega Alpha membership and by being awarded the Fredrica Gehrmann Scholarship in the junior year and the Linthicum Scholarship in the senior year. Guy is one of those rare fellows who while consistantly ranking first scholastically also rates as a " real guy " with his confreres. He is a Nu Sigma Nu and is vice-president of the Senior Class. After interning at the U.S. Marine Hospital, Balti- more, Guy intends to specialize in internal medicine. A native Baltimorean as of October 17, 1925, Jerry received his A.B. degree from The Johns Hopkins University before coming to med school. Far from being a dull grind, this genial aspiront to a career in internal medicine takes time to cultivate outside interests. He is marshall for Phi Sigma Delta and is particularly interested in radio construction and design. During the past two summers he has, for some reason best known to himself, seen fit to work in hospitals. In 1948 he held the prestige-ridden office of clinical clerk in our own medical dispensory. Fired with success, he returned to new conquests as a junior intern at West Baltimore General Hospital in 1949. All this should make him a most welcome intern ot Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, this year. Tom the frenetic Tarheel was born chanting Carolina football cheers on August 2, 1926, in Granite Falls, North Carolina. This neonatal laison was further cemented when in ' 46 the University granted our poem-writing lad an A.B. degree. These past four years were spent in an exhaustive study of Baltimore nursing pulchritude. It is widely rumored that it was the frantic clicking of Tom ' s incisors while engaged in this latter research that cost him one set of upper teeth during his sophomore year. Tom him- self spikes this succinctly, " I was merely teething on o steering wheel! " Having completed his local investigations and a junior internship at St. Joseph ' s Hospital, Tom will move to the University of Texas Medical Branch Hospital in Galveston for his internship. This Phi Chi intends eventually to return to his beloved Carolina and raise some little Toms. ) o ent The din of political machinery was eclipsed on March 1923 when Joseph R. Cowen was born in the nation ' s capital. His education at the University of Chicago interrupted by a tour of duty in the Army in 1943, Joe returned to his premedical studies at The Johns Hopkins Uni- versity, where he finished in 1946. A junior internship at French Hospital New York, and some advanced studies in the Graduate School of Columbia University account for his summers. He is treasurer and historian of Phi Delta Epsilon ond on the honor roll of the National Board. After an internship at Wayne County General Hospital and Infirmary in Eloise, Michigan, he expects to moke his mark in neuro-psychiatry. TViUcCUit On December 18, 1917, when Bill began life in Charleston, W. Va. his hair was not yet generously splashed with gray and his " pants ' ' were habitual- ly rumpled; a far cry from the self controlled, impeccable product of Virginia Military Institute we all know. Bill spent five years in the Army, a good part of it in the dismal surroundings of the P.W. camps maintained by " Aryan hospitality " for reluctant allied " tourists " . Satiated with things German and military. Bill, trading the " frying pan for the fire " plunged into the comfort ridden, luxurious liesurly life of a medical student along with the rest of us in 1946. A Phi Chi, he has spent his summers externing and after completing an internship at Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore Bill expects to lend his precise habits to the practice of surgery. On February 11, 1926 heavy lidded Lenny entered Raleigh, North Carolina in a relaxed state from which he ' s never recovered. He earned his A.B. at the University of North Carolina with a Chemistry major. Scribe of Phi Delta Epsilon in 48-49 and Consul in 49-50, Len spent a summer externing at Elizabeth Buxton Hospital, Newport News, Virginia followed by a Smoky Mountain " Escapade " . This easy going lad who has been known to blink but never to startle intends to Sinai Hospital Baltimore enroute to his favorite, un-named specialty. S CUftefl Maybe there is more to the genetic theory than we think, for Miriam Abbott was born to Dr. and Dr. Shamer on January 26, 1925, and is naw in a similar position herself, having married the classmate on the next page on June 28, 1948. A tight team, the Dalys have together done everything from honeymooning to selling Christmas trees to interning at West Baltimore General Hospital. Miriam graduated from Goucher with an A.B. and has been class secretary during the Freshman and Sophomore years. Vivacious, whether perched on a lab stool or a piano bench, she has summered taking census for the Baltimore City Health Department and working with the Fed- eral Bureau of Supply. After an internship at West Baltimore General Hospital she would like to do some general practice and raise somewhat less than a Daily Dazen. a iolcC cumcHCc Born July T, 1924 in Elkhart, Indiana, Hoi now makes his home in Silver Spring, Maryland. He took his pre-med at the University of Moryland and spent an emphatic 2 years, 8 months, and 17 days in the Navy Medical Corps. In June of 1948 he underwent the double trauma of State Board examinations and a church ceremony at which he and MiriamAb- bott Shamer were married. Not one to succomb easily, he spent the re- mainder of the summer as a medical technician at Bolling Field. At West Baltimore General Hospital for a junior internship, he will return there for his senior internship and thereafter do G.P. or internal medicine. Ti eed Born in Denver, Colorado, August 9, 1924, " E.O. " went " south " to pick up an A.B. from Randolph Macon Women ' s College and a " Shugary " accent. Fully renouncing the North ' s frigid charms she currently calls Coral Gables, Florida, home base. However, to completely confuse the issue " E.O. " married Larry Demarest from up-state New York, a confirmed ice and snowman during the summer of 1947 in Coral Gables. They split their honeymoon " North and South " . Besides darning Larry ' s socks " E.O. " has been busy as a lab-technician at Maryland General Hospital and an extern at West Baltimore General Hospital, After an internship at the University Hospital Mrs. " D. " intends to study pediatrics and psychiatry from the hospital view point before taking time out to raise a family — and then return to active practice. On June 18, 1923 there was a flurry of excitement in the Demarest home in South Orange, New Jersey which turned out to be Lorry. In 1945 he graduated from Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, where he was o Zeto Psi, with o B.S. degree. Commanding LCS 95 under Navy Auspices, Lorry hit the Philippine and Okinawan beaches while the atmospheric lead titre was slightly high and then went on to do occupation duty in Japan. At the end of the freshman year he and Elinor C. Weed decided to combine their libraries with benifit of clergy. A junior intern at Church Home and Hospital in ' 48 and ' 49, Larry will intern at the Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, New York and then do general practice. Ttu oicu On September 7, 1920, Nick arrived in the usual unencumbered fashion in Lyndora, Pa. About the time Nick graduated from the University of Pittsburg, fashions were rapidly changing, and before you could say, " I don ' t like Khaki " , he was working for his Uncle Sugar in the Alaskan Territory. Enamored with the local flora and fauna Nick took his discharge then for a while taught mathematics before marrying a local flora of the fauna, Olean Wells, May 17, 1946. Last summer Nick worked on a research problem for the U.S. Public Health Service and this year he will head northwest again for an internship at The Good Samaritan Hospital of Portland, Oregon and as an Internist. f edenic SdvpuutcC " Fredmunds " first crocked his knuckles in Charleston, W. Vo., January 30, 1920. Horning his B.S. at Hampden Sydney, Fred was further broaden- ed, premedically, by thirty-eight months of Army duty that, if nothing else, was fantastically varied — “They sent me everywhere but bombadier ' s school! " . This mountoin boy ' s chief extracurricular fun derives from rat- tling a “bones " occomponiment to mournful off-beat hillbilly cacophonies, though he owns to “liking jug-music and symphonies too " . After on intern- ship at Union Memorial Hospitol, Baltimore, “Fredmunds " intends to prac- tice in Charleston, W. Vo. ;4 uHet Jock bolted into Humboldt, Konsos July 16, 1922 but presently cloims Topeko os home. " Goog " went to both Cornell University ond University of Morylond for his pre-med ond wos oworded o B.S. from the letter. His recent summers spent os o bocteriologist in The Stote Public Heolth Loboro- tory ot Topeko ore o noturol sequelo of his experience with o Novol epidemio- logic unit both ot Somor, P.I. ' s; ond Shonghoi, Chino in the some role. A member of Nu Sigmo Nu os well os on Alpho Omego Alpho, Jock held o junior internship ot the Hospitol for Women, Boltimore, where he leorned thot oil cordioc murmurs ore not pothologicol. He intends to intern ot Konsos Medicol Center, Konsos City, Konsos ond eventuolly " to be o good G.P. " I lenient ( nee t teut On June 4, 1921, the Greenstein family was delighted with the birth of a son, George H., who loter attended The Johns Hopkins University from which he extracted an A.B. degree in 1941. George volunteered in the Army, and during his four yeor tour of duty served as on armored infantry unit commander with the 4th Armored Division in the ETO, ond later as P. W. Stockade Commander. The Major was decorated with the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and Combat Infantryman Badge. Home from the wars, George returned to Baltimore and on August 11, 1946 morried Vera Ber- kowitz. Mechanically minded George hos revolutionized the design of ophtholmoscopic cases. George will intern at Sinai Hospitol in Baltimore. sdc(M€tnd (SmaicC As omen of the sophisticofed " smoothie " he was to become, " Horn " on March 13, 1918 protested in well modulated tones his precipituous debut into the barbaric atmosphere, that in Baltimore passes for early spring. Twenty-two springs later, better protected from the weather, " Lon " accepted his A. B. from Loyola of Baltimore with unshaken aplomb. " Horn " charted his way through World War II os o U.S. Air Force Navigator from March of 1942 till May 1946 when he entered the inactive Air Force Reserve os Captain. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, Horn divides his hobby time between gardening and golf, saving for inclement weather his proclivity for social investigation which he, by preference, conducts from behind the protective coloration of the good brown brew in the softly reflect- ed glare of local television screens. They ' ll be " calling Dr. Homberry " at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore for the next twelve months. m ■■■ij Ken was born February 21, 1917 in Trenton, New Jersey. He spent several years in laboratory work in development production, and research in pharmaceuticals, and graduated from Upsala College in East Orange, New Jersey with a B.S. degree in chemistry. For many years Ken has been interested in astronomy and has ground and polished his own optics and built several reflecting telescopes of observatory size. On November 11, he was married to Adriana Marie Mol. They have two children, Cloudia Lorraine, 4, Kenneth Robert, 214, and they expect another addition to the family at graduation time. Ken served in the U.S. Army for 40 months. He expects to intern in Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, New Jersey. I Way back in 1914, October 13 to be exact, Phil was born in South Bend, Indiana. At the University of Michigan he studied chemistry, was made a life member of Scabbard and Blade, and graduated with a B.S. During his five and a half years in the Army, Phil was operations officer of the 96th Chemical while in the E.T.O., and stateside was a training instructor, leaving the service as a Lt. Colonel. In Aberdeen, Maryland on April 6, 1942, he and Marguerite Longley were married. They now are the proud tenants of a farm in Long Bar Harbor, Abingdon, Maryland where Phil mothers a meticulously kept vegetable patch. He summers on active duty in the Army at Edgewood Arsenal. In 1950 he will join the house staff at Mercy Hospital. Phil aspires to get a comfortable practice under way before arterial sclerosis levels his vigorous 6 ' 5 " . Born February 3, 1926 at- Orrville, Ohio, Gracie currently calls Mos- sillon, Ohio home. While Groce claims outdoor sports as her first love, her avid appetite for classical music lends cultural balance to our " beer and skittles " society, and she has been known to lay aside a Gray ' s Anatomy in favor of an evening of cymbal croshing and arias at the Lyric. Tout ensemble, a well rounded girl, Gracie got her A.B. from the College of Wooster, Ohio. A junior intern at Woman ' s Hospital, Baltimore the past two summers, our graceful Buckeye intends to intern at Mercy Hospital, Canton, Ohio. Her studies completed, she will return to Massillon and its 26,644 football fans to do a general practice of medicine. Good notured, gray thatched Irvin Gorman (Pete to us) made his appearance in Oxford, Maryland on August 27, 1915. He attended St. John ' s College, Maryland, and after completing his hundred great books, received a B.A. degree in 1939. After kicking around the E.T.O. in the Army Engineers, he was discharged on November 30, 1945, after 3 years service. Liking beer and music, Pete spent his earlier summers in a bucolic retreat on the Eastern Shore. More recently he junior interned at Easton Memorial Hospital and Volunteers of America Hospital in Baltimore. Pete is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. He will cross the street next year to join the house staff at University Hospital and then do general prac- tice in a small community. SoficL " Ginny " first experienced the joy of vocal expression September 2, 1918 in Boonsboro, Maryland, which she still colls home. Working her way through the University of Maryland, she was graduated a B.S. as well as an accomplished baby sitter in 1940, and then went on to do graduate work at both The Johns Hopkins University and Smith College. During the late war Ginny did bacteriological research at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. An externship at Spring Grove Hospital this summer past was in line with her ambitions to preside over a Freudian, couch-lined, first aid station for sprained, fractured, and otherwise shopworn libidos and superegos. She will intern at University Hospital. c(4te C Harrief arrived in North Bergen, New Jersey on November 24, 1923 in on abbreviated ' ' bikini " and a lengthy bawl. More completely but cer- tainly not as fetchingly clad, she accepted her B.A. from Wells College in Aurora, New York. Eschewing the local Beauty Battle near by in New Jersey, Harriet got into the " big tussel " via the WAVEs and after two years of cajoling kilocycles into their ordained channels, left the service a Lt. j.g. For the past two summers she has externed at Beebe Hospital, Lewis, Delaware. Harriet has a way, even with children, and it ' s a safe bet that sooner or later her natural talents will lead her to at least a limited pediatric practice. Harriet, the " doctor most likely to be whistled at " , will be elevating pulses at Baltimore City Hospitals during her intern- ship. This 29 year old, well nourished, white mole, sleeping comfortably in class was born on June 23, 1920 in Baltimore. Johnnie stuck around home and attended Loyola College, from whence he graduated with a B.S. degree. A pipe smoker, he enjoys writing fiction, and who knows — maybe the class of ' 50 has another Oliver Wendell Holmes in its midst. On November 15, 1942 he married Mildred Goski in Baltimore ' s St. Patrick ' s Cathedral, and they have three deductible items. Jack Stephen, 6, Jo Ann Marie, 3 and Micheal Adrian, 5 months. Johnnie left the Marine Corps in 1946 after four years as a communications officer. He intends to find a town small enough for meditation and do general practice, after an internship at West Baltimore Hospital. Maxwell first kicked up a flurry of excitement in the Ibsen household on January 12, 1917 in Glen Lyon, Pennsylvania. Since then he has gather- ed an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University, an M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, and a D.Sc. from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. He enlisted in the Army early in 1942, and after graduating from OCS, served with the 93rd General Hospital in the ETO. After this tour of overseas duty he returned as a clinical pathologist at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. On December 22, 1946 he and Helen Ruth Brown were married and they now have a son, Peter Michael, 1. Max held a junior internship at Mercy Hospital and will intern at Santa Clara County Hospital, San Jose, California. CifAicC Thirty years ago in Reno when it was more of a frontier town, Roy David Jensen was born on August 20, and he still colls Reno home. He attended the University of Nevada and graduated o B.S. in 1941. Three years in the infontry, Roy saw combat service on New Guinea, Moluccas, and the Philippines before returning to the outdoor life he loves in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Reversing the usual Reno procedure, he and Gloria Ann Troynor were married August 18, 1946, and there is now a Roy David, Jr. 1 yeor old. A junior internship at Washoe Medical Center in his home town occupied lost summer, and next year Franklin Hospital in San Francisco will get his services. Jens will return to Reno to practice. A year ' s internship at Mercy Haspital, Baltimore and a general proc- tice in a Maryland county is Frank ' s object, and the sooner the better. He was born on June 15, 1918 in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy with a B.S. degree. The war found him in the Army; first in a Medical Training Battalion and later in the 60th Station Hospital as Detachment Commonder. It was with this organization that he went overseas to the Mediterranean Theater and North Africa. Three months after his discharge he married Mary E. Leech on June 5, 1946 in Baltimore and the union has been blessed twice with Kathleen Mary 3, and Peggy Anne 1. Frank has sandwiched fishing and swimming between work as a druggist and a tour of duty at Fort Meade Station Hospital. iUCam A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy an d a veteran of two years in the University of Maryland Graduate School, Gordon W. Kelley was born in Baltimore on October 6, 1917. In Silver Spring in March of 1939 he married Lillian F. White of Ohio, and Janice Lucill, now 5, occupies much of their spare time. In the Navy during the war, Kelley was a Gunnery and Executive Officer. He was relieved from active duty in 1946. An Alpha Chi Sigma, and Phi Delta Chi, the complete com- muter has worked as a pharmacist during his 4 years of medical school in addition to being a chemist in malario research and U.S. Naval explosive research. The Navy has reserved a berth far him next year at its hospital in St. Albans, New York. His present jovial avoirdupois is a far cry from the three pound baby who was born in February, 1916 in Miss ouri. Ellis completed his A.B. degree at the University of Missouri in 1946 after eleven years, no small achievement in itself. In the interim he spent five years in the Medical Department of the Army, during which time he met Mary Elizabeth Brown of Portland, Oregon whom he married in Baltimore in June, 1942. He received a B.S. in Medicine from the Medical School of the University of Missouri and joined our class in the junior year with the blessing of that institution. A Phi Beta Pi, he was president of his sophomore class. He will intern at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, Oregon and then do G.P. in the Pacific Northwest. Frank Gustav Kuehn ( ' ' pronounced Keen! " ) sauntered on to the scene July 11, 1925 in Baltimore and borrowed a cigarrette and a light from a nearby obstetrician. Frank continued to saunter, and to smoke, as he attended Johns Hopkins University. From 1943-45 Phm Second-class " Keen " compounded the confusion for Uncle Samuel. He attended Uni- versity of North Carolina (in the heart of tobacco land) and received his A.B. and preclinical training there prior to joining this class in the junior year. On November 24, 1949 Miss Elaine Hokman began pronauncing her name " Keen " , too. An Alpha Phi Kappa, Phi Beta Kappa, and Alpha Kappa Kappa, Frank will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore, and then begin specializing in OB-GYN. How Tim has managed fo retain his coveted bachelorhood these many years ia a puzzle unsolved. The sudden flush seen rising in his cheeks is but a ruse, however, for his appreciation for les femmes has a constant but high titre. Following his birth in Frostburg, Maryland on January 7, 1921, Tim, like Topsy, " jus ' grew " until he was big enough to go to college at Western Maryland for his pre-med training. During his college tour he was a member of R.O.T.C. which prepared him for his four and a half years in the Army Air Corps at Middletown, Pa. and in India. Tim is a Phi Chi. He plans a career as a good old " family doc " following an internship at St. Vincent ' s Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut. During the course of on even three years in the service, the Navy attempted to moke o dentist out of Joe, but they both gave it up os a bod job and Joe finished his war experience os on ensign on the U.S.S. H. R. Dickson. Born on August 25, 1925 in Baltimore, he attended Sworthmore College, and graduated from The Johns Hopkins University with an A.B. His sole medical interest is psychiatry, and he spent his summers at Spring Grove Hospital with the exception of a few weeks in 1949 when he married Charlotte A. Silberstein on June 26. Joe will intern at West Baltimore General Hospital, following this by a residency in psychiatry. Bill whistled his way into Wilmington, Delaware on October 12, 1923 and may still occasionally be heard whistling down the barrel of a micro- scope. After a few years of intense study at Georgia Tech and the University of Delaware, G.W. assumed the duties of a combat infantryman with the Army, but this occupation was terminated on Christmas Day 1944 in the Battle of the Bulge by a bullet through his chest. Returning to France after a few months hospitalization he served as a reporter for Stars and Stripes. On June 4, 1949 Bill left the ranks of the unmarried when he joined hands with petit Jeon Ruth Granger of Wilmington. A Phi Chi and Student Council Representative, Bill externed and will intern at Delaware General Hospital back home in Wilmington. cificCcH Prime mover of Medicos Terroe Morioe and president of the Senior Class, Mac boosted the census of Dormont, Pennsylvania on Februory 15, 1921. Home though, says he, is where you hang your hat. He received his B.S. at Grove City College, Pennsylvania and on February 18, 1943 he and Norma E. Feik were married. Kevin Lawrence, 5, has since assumed command. 46 missions os a B-17 pilot in the ETO rewarded him with a spreading patch of alopecia. This throttle happy Nu Sigma Nu has spent his summers as a flying medical officer with the Air Force. The immediate future holds on internship at Allentown Hospital, Pennsylvania and after a residency he hopes to begin removing things, either in OB-Gyn or surgery. Although born in New York on September 20, 1925, Dottie is a country girl at heart and now claims Dover, Delaware as her home town. From Washington College, Chestertown, Maryland she graduated with a B.S., and was made a member of Sigma Sigma Omicron, an honor frater- nity. She is much interested in the piano, although whether she plays it, listens to it, or sits on it is not known at this writing. She spent her summers at the City Morgue and Union Memorial Hospital. The secretary of the Senior Class will intern at St. Vincent ' s Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecti- cut, and if nothing else tempts her, she feels that general practice is her meat. oAent THiUen. Bob first saw the light of day in Bridgewater, Virginia, May 11, 1921. In due time after living in both Pennsylvania and Maryland, he returned to Bridgewater to attend college where he received his B.A. degree in 1943. The army made him a good sailor, for he made many crossings on hospital ships and transports in special service as a physical education instructor. Proving that the Army and Navy can come to terms on at least one problem. Bob and Joan Morton, a Navy nurse, were married in Hyattsville, Maryland April 26, 1946. Their family now includes Robert Eugene, Jr. 3, and Donna Joan, 1. Bob spent his summers amassing a fortune with hammer and saw. On weekends softball was his chief occupation. After interning at City Hospital, Baltimore, Bob will practice in some quiet town with a good baseball diamond. ccfttex S6 U(ilC(ic Ttcai Typically late for New Years Day, Hunter arrived early on Jonuary 2, 1924 in Philadelphia. He studied business administration at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania, engineering at Mississippi State College, and pre- med at Vanderbilt University, the latter under the added strain of Army Regulations, giving him the distinction of attending more colleges without ever acquiring a degree than any other member of the class. He joined the class in the sophomore year after a summer vacation in the merchant mar- ine wore on for twelve months. Playing it safer on subsequent summers, he took a junior internship at University Hospital. Hunter plans to spend next year at Reading Hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania and following that a career in plastic surgery. The " Senor " arrived March 7, just 25 years ago, in Naguabo, Puerto Rico, but now calls Santurce, Puerto Rico home. Julio received his B.S. from the University of Puerto Rico; and his way with women os o birth- right. President of Sigma lota, the senor spent his spore time at St. Joseph ' s Hospital proving that nursing con be on exciting profession and serving o junior internship. He will return to his native land for an internship at San Juan City Hospitol. Julio hopes eventually to become a faculty member of the University of Puerto Rico, School of Medicine; but with a graceful shrug of his voluble shoulders he declares " Even as the serious professor I will deliberately enjoy life — for manana, quien sobe? " 04eftA 0 TfMjtccf On February 11, 1923 in St. Louis, Missouri, on unmilitory bundle of boy joined the O ' Malley cion. However, some errant angel must hove been bugling muted, martial airs for after attending The Citadel, University of Virginia, and Colby College, Joe became a most complete militaryman, being first a member of His British Majesty ' s Black Watch of the Royal Highland Regiment. Continuing in o proud fighting man ' s tradition, Joe then became a Gyrene and saw service for Uncle Sam in the Solomon Islands campaigns. Laying aside his battle dress, and substituting an organ ' s sonorous soothings for the sharp rattle of the quicksteps, Joe married Norice Mahoney June 22, 1946 and they now have a 14 month old logistic problem. Norice Clark. A Sigma Nu since his University of Virginia days, Joe has ambitions in the field of radical surgery that will, he hopes, be realized after his internship at St. Francis Hospital, Hartford, Connecticut Evangeline hails from Philippi, West Virginia where she was born on November 20, 1924. She grew up in Philippi, graduated from high school there and attended the local college, Alderson-Broaddus. In 1945 she received an A.B. degree from West Virginia University and in 1946 an M.A. degree in child develapment from Columbia University. On June 15, 1947 she married Glenn B. Poling, a dental student and fellow West Virginian. Schoolwork, housework, and needlework have since occupied a large part of her spare time. She will intern at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore and eventually ga back to West Virginia and practice pedia- trics, perhaps on the staff of the Myers Clinic, owned and operated by Vangie ' s father. TVcjUCcuk 1Reaen , The sole contribution of Biglerville, Pennsylvania to the class comes in the form of Bill Rever, who was born on July 19, 1923. He attended Cornell and the University of Maryland. Bill is one of the salt water specialists of the class, having spent almost 4 years in the Navy, part of the time as skipper of an L.C.T. in the Pacific and the remainder on a mine sweeper. In the Navy Chapel at Norfolk, he and Mary Frances La Bar were married on February 25, 1946. Bill ' s summers have been consumed as a foreman for the B. and O. and externing at Mercy Hospital. He is a member of Nu Sigma Nu and is chairman of their social committee. He has Bard-Parker fever, and hopes one day to become a surgeon after in- terning at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore. “Paul %edenic ccAciftcC Th is enterprising slave of Morpheus entered this competitive society on January 12, 1922. He has since resurrected many o junk heap to a serviceable automobile for resale. One wonders if his shingle will read ' ' Paul F. Richardson, M.D. Used Car Dealer " . Paul ' s pre-med training wos gleaned from Baylor University, Waco, Texas and punctuated by 4 yeors duty with the Army Medical Department. His ambulance anecdotes ore a constant source of amusement. On May 24, 1942 in Baltimore he and Naomi Marguerite Otto were morried and their household is now ruled by Jan Karen, 5. Paul will intern ot Mercy Hospital in Boltimore and plans to do general practice thereafter. oidcC ccfttcuicl From Rochester, New York comes Virginia Marie Gould, who was born there on November 16, 1921. She graduated from Nazareth College with a B.S. in chemistry and then went to the Navy for two years as a Lt. in the WAVE. She paints in oils and very shortly we expect to see her work in Parergon. Comely Ginny enjoys horseracing but has been unable to improve the breed appreciably because of a shortage of funds while in medical school in spite of the expert touting available. Junior internship at St. Mary ' s Hospital and Spring Grove occupied her summers and next year she will intern at the Crawford W. Long Hospitol in Atlanta, Georgia, as Dr. Virginia Gould Reynaud. Ginny ond " Looey " were morried this Easter vacation, April 10, 1950. acUd €Uciot Mercurial “Looey " first " showed " in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 19, 1924. Proof of his cosmopolitan nature can be had, if needed, from the fact that this Emory University alumnus claims both Atlonta and Chicago as his present home town. A seasoned philotelist, this Sigma Chi ' s chief interest outside of medicine is " four legged animals " . He hos spent considerable time and pay trying to " improve the breed " and in off seosons a well turned " shank ' s mare " is most apt to get a rise out of him. Al- though a confirmed turf man he spent four years in the Navy prior to med school. After graduation he intends to " return to the deep south " for an internship at the Crawford W. Long Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., with Ginny. TfUitoH ' cufmo4icC Bud made his first " cair ' on March 2, 1920, in San Francisco, Calif. Fired by his success in breeding o prize herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle during his High School days. Bud now is interested in " stock " , but of the coupon clipping variety. After o few years at the University of California he took up with the Navy and attended the University of the Air at Corpus Christi. Bud served in the Pacific as a pilot in the original " Dumbo " Res- cue Squadron, fishing many a shot-down fly-boy out of the drink under in- tense enemy fire. Completing these duties Bud returned to the States as an Instrument and Navigation instructor,. Lt. Commander Righetti and Gloria Campana, also a Californion, were married in Beaufort, S.C. on Easter Sunday, April 1, 1945, and they are awaiting the arrival of o new little Righetti. Bud is a Nu Sigma Nu. He will intern at Permanente Haspitals in Oakland, Califarnia. Otcven. The Mesmerian ait wos not very evident in Ralph ' s personality that November 30, 1921 when Cumberland heard his first wail, but his studies at Maryland State Teachers College and the University of Moryland soon exposed that power of oral anesthesia which may replace saddle block in his future OB practice. During the recent war Ralph served as a Navy pilot until he buzzed his way out of the Navy and into the Army as a Personnel Consultant and Company Commander at Percy Jones General Hospital. On June 2, 1943 he and Virginia Lee McBride were married in Cumberland and they have added Sheila Diane, 4, to the Roth census. A Nu Sigmo Nu, Ralph returned to the Army lost summer os o medical officer at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania and subsequently junior interned at the Relay Sanitorium. He will intern ot Mercy Hospital, Baltimore. Sam, son of Baltimore ' s Poet Laureate, arrived a noisy bundle of free verse on March 29, twenty-six years ago in the Monumental City. Writing as little blank verse as possible, Sam graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with an A.B. degree. Spending two and a half years in the Army, he saw service in the ETO as an infantryman. To our culture ridden class, he contributes with proper eclat such interests as beer and pretzels, although he does admit liking long hair music. The historian of Phi Delta Epsilon, Sam enlive ns his summers by playing tennis, swimming, and travelling through New England and Canada. More recently he was a junior intern at West Baltimore General Hospital. Next year he will in- tern at the Sinai Hospital, Baltimore. His future plans are not known. Tto i fuut cuC(f A Californian in the way he talks, dresses, and drives (Maryland traffic tickets notwithstanding), Herman was born in Fresno on May 17, 1926. He collected his pre-medical education from Fresno State College before venturing East. He spends his summers either in California or in cruising off to Howaii. Rudy is a Sigma Tau and Nu Sigma Nu. He spent last summer as a junior intern at the Santa Monica Hospital in California, and will return to the Sunshine State to join the house stuff of the Hospital of the Good Samaritan. Herman is not sure of what he eventually wants to do, but he does wont to do it in Californio. o6€nt Scutdie Robert bobbed into Baltimore on June 19, 1921. A Bochelor of Science of the University of Maryland circa 1943, Bob spent two years of thirty six months of duty with the Army Medical Department in the European Theatre as a Staff Sgt. On August 18, 1946 in Baltimore, he forsook the benedict ' s gay life in company with Joline Kaplan, who pre- sented him with a son, Laurence David on September 17, 1949. A Phi Delta Epsilon, Bob has proved himself a serious student who is not, in season, above kicking up his heels with enthusiastic abandon. After com- pletion of his training at Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, he intends to do o general practice while maintaining his interest in obstetrical pediatrics problems. %ecCenic S6 fiAencC Shep put in his bid for longerity on June 4, 1913 in Grontwood, New Jersey but now colls Baltimore home. Armed with on A.B. from Syracuse University ' 35, membership in Kappa Sigma and Scabbard and Blade, Fred set out to make his mark on the world. The Army interfered, however, ond he found himself conducting a self-propelled anti-aircraft unit in the 2nd Armored Division on the Normandy to Berlin run. In Queenstown, Maryland on September 6, 1941 he and Ruth Merritt Leonard were married and they now point with pride to their firstborn, Laura, 4 big months old. Lt. Shepherd has spent his summers on active duty with the Reserve. . Dur- ing the senior year Shep distinguished himself by contracting chickenpox via the Robinson Circus. After an internship at U.S. Marine Hospital, Baltimore, he will trek to the hinterland to do general practice. J%edenic euCoifii. Twenty nine years ago on April 17 a weary stork, tired of fighting headwinds and the incessant criticism of his red-nosed passenger, dropped Fred off in Baltimore. Still with o fine nose for the right destination, Fred served os o Bombardier with the 15th. Air Force in Itoly until fate intervened and plunked him into the lop of Russian hospitolity for o few weeks. After separation he returned to Loyola of Baltimore to garner his B.S. A member of Alpha Omege Alpha, on extern at West Baltimore General Hospital this post summer, Fred, this year presided over the Mercy Hospital Blood Bonk. Despite his experiences with things airborne, Fred, occording to the Flight Plon filed with us, will intern under Air Force auspices at Wolter Reed en route to his surgical boords. iUCcuH SOic This dashing red haired bachelor was born on April 3, 1922 in Frostburg, Marylond, and later attended Western Maryland College where after four yeors of intensiye coeducation, he secured a B.A. degree. Three years in the Army Medical Corps failed to dissuade him and he came to medical school the same year he was discharged. An outdoor enthusiast, he finds time for some comping, fishing, and tennis even though he hos been externing at Franklin Square Hospitol for the post two years. Bill will join the Moryland contingent to St. Vincent ' s Hospital in Bridge- port, Connecticut next year where he will continue his efforts ond after thot things are open to speculation. ACiC(t S ia l Scarf, as he was so endearingly called by Bucky Freedom, was deliver- ed from LOA on October 24, 1923 in Columbus, Ohio. Migrating East, Al entered Western Maryland College for his pre-med education. Liking his birthdate, he married Ellen Hope Hess on October 24, 1942 and the union has been blessed with Mary Carol, 6, and Linda Diane, 2. Scarf spent 3 years in the Army, mostly with the 6th Amphibious Engineers in the campaign of New Guinea, the Bismark Archipellago, the liberation of the southern Phillipines and Luzon. The gray Ford with the Nu Sigma Nu ensign in the window carries Al to and from Taneytown, Maryland and the little family these last months of the " grind " . Al will join the delegation to St. Vincent ' s Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut for his internship. iftontoK Mori joined the Smith ' s legions on July 14, 1922 in Baltimore, Mary- land after nine months of careful deliberation. Learning to make more hasty but none the less prudent decisions Mort graduated from the Univer- sity of Maryland an outstanding B.S. Among the scholastic elite he is an Alpha Omega Alpha by virtue of his consistent high class standing. Mort who is also a Phi Delta Epsilon considers chess an ideal relaxani for the " little grey cells " . An amateur mathematitian, Mort occasionally risks a " jit " in the interest of applied physics and the calculation of probabilities on local pinball mazes. He will continue, too, to be linked with the common clog by his " motion studies " of hospitals while interning at Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, Illinois. 4ficC lC(4A So4a M 4 On February 2, 1925 there arriyed in the Sosnowski household a screaming, squirming conglomeration of cells. This apparition wos for some unknown reason nicknamed Hank. After a few mitoses and a battle with Dr. Potts disease. Hank sped through Southern High, snatched a B.S. from Loyola of Baltimore, took graduate work in chemistry at Notre Dame, entered Medical school, and married Muriel Doris Hatfield. All this in such a short time as to make your head spin. We will never forget the beer party he almost singlehandedly sponsored one night back in 1947. The Curtis Bay Polish home won ' t forget us either. We were given the pleasure of participating in a real Polish wedding and reception on July 11, 1948 when Hank and Muriel were married out there in Curtis Bay — what o day, eh Hank? The Stump will intern at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore. cufmo4tcC Sft udcCut , f %. " My name is Spaulding. No doubt you have . . . This was perhaps our first meeting with big exhuberent Ray back there in September ' 46. And we won ' t forget that dance when he sang so lustily, " I wish I was in Dix- ie, Bless her heart! " A Floridan since his first gasp on 5 August, 1921, Ray stayed hatless through John B. Stetson University in DeLand and a B.S. The Navy covered his shining hair, though, and for 3 years he cruised about, visiting the Normandy beachhead one D Day in 1944. Lt. Spaulding and Frances Eloine Fretwell, of Jacksonville, Florida, were married 6 February, 1944 and they now have their own private little pediatric problem in R.C. Ill, 1 year. Ray will intern across the street at University Hospital and hopes in the future to toke up the knife. y SUint mcut, Henry, who now resides in Hagerstown, Maryland, was born in Balti- more on August 28, 1925. He acquitted himself well with the 8th Army in Yokohama, at Loyola College, and the University of Maryland.. During this time he developed a taste for photography. A Nu Sigma Nu, he proved that he can look at the negative side of things when he spent the last two summers in the X-ray department of the Washington County Hos- pital in Hagerstown where he was also exposed to the charms of Peggy Ann Thumma. They are to be married on June 3rd this year and after a short honeymoon he will begin an internship in the Baltimore City Hospital. Henry, in keeping with his interest in the graphic arts, ultimately hopes to become a radiologist. Tftct Uf StontH Betty, whom we left on poge 19 packing sports coots, first bounced her bustle July 9, 1925 in Frederick, Md. After attending Northfield Seminary she went on to Sworthmore College and an A.B. degree. Slipping un- obtrusively into the back of Anatomical Hall, Betty joined our ranks in the fall of 1946. Those who got close enough to know her, sing praise for her elfin humor and dry tart wit; the rest of us know her as a gracious, quiet girl who seemed less afraid than most of us of " UhlyV ' bluster and who when the shouting s over this June will marry Harlan Bleecker, M.D. When asked her future plans, our bride to be says with a wicked grin, " Research. ' ' TftccAccii Sut a Casimir pulled out by a nose on September 24, 1923 in Chicago, but since that time his win, place, and show fortunes have floundered con- siderably, and even the professional advice he acquired as an intern in the Maryland State Penitentiary did not alter the fourth, fifth, and sixth run- ning tendencies of his selections. In the blustry Chicago tradition, Mike went west to Dubuque, Iowa, and gathered a pre-medical education at Laras College, before spending some 23 months in the SW Pacific and the CBI theatre, which became of value when he was able to confirm Dr. Hull ' s brilliant observations of Calcutta. Still pleasingly unmarried, Mike will gladen the nursing staff of St. Lukes ' Hospital in Chicago beginning in July. o ent The son of a prominent physician, Thib was born on September 4, 1923 in Washington, D.C. He acquired a B.S. degree from the University of Maryland in 1945 and followed this with a year in graduate school as an instructor in zoology. Thib relieved the frustrations of medical school by playing the pipe organ. A job at the Maryland State Penitentiary during the junior year precipitated his interest in penology and criminal psychia- try. A Phi Chi he summered clerking in a drug store, learning of the sex life of the oyster at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, and vacationing at the Buxton Clinic in Newport News. He was president of the class his junior year. Providence Hospital in Washington will get his services after graduation. On December 6, 1917 a cherubic bontling was born to the Thompsons in Rock Hall, Maryland. They named him Bill, hoped he would be presi- dent some day, and sent him to Washington College for a B.S. dated 1938. In 1941 Bill donned khaki with the signal corps and later piloted Fortresses in the 8th Air Force flying 25 missions. He was decorated with DFC and Air Medal with 3 oak leaf clusters. On July 17, 1945, he and Jacquelyn May Risley of Great Falls, Montano were married and now William Randall, 4, flies co-pilot for Bill. While in med school Bill has flown for the Air National Guard and this past summer served as a flying medical officer in the Air Force. Bill will intern at Milwaukee County Hospital, Wisconsin. Bate drawled into Winston-Salem, North Carolina on July 7, 1918. He received part of his education at the Woodberry Forest School in Virginia and then returned south to the University of North Carolina where he secured o B.S. In the Navy for the duration, he participated in the amphibious operations in Africa, Sicily, Salerno, Saipan, Angauer, Leyte, Lingauyen Gulf, and Iwo Jima as Deck, gunnery, and navigotion officer before he was released to inactive duty as a Lt. Commander in 1946. On September 7 of the same yeor he and Margaret Spencer Shackleford were married in Martinsville, Virginia and B.C.T. Ill joined them early this year. Bate, a Phi Chi, entered our class the junior year as a transfer from the University of North Carolina. He will intern at Union Memorial Hos- pital in Baltimore and will eventually do general surgery. sd Mlc Al made his appearance on October 29, 1921 in Oakland, California He majored in bacteriology at the University of California, and in 1942 graduated with an A.B. degree. During the recent war he gave his service to the medical department at Camp Barkely, Texas, Camp Atterbury, In- diano, and in Manila, P.l. and emerged a Captain, MAC. He is a member of Nu Sigma Nu and Alpha Omega Alpha. During the Sophomore year he was class president. He took the nuptial vows with Ruth June Sanden on September 4, 1943 and there is now a little Upton, David Albert, 1 year. Uppie will serve his internship in the Letterman General Hospitol in San Francisco. He plans to specialize in internal medicine and practice in California. ) From the Garden State, Neal was born in Paterson on September 15, 1922. Van received a B.S. degree from Calvin College in Grand Rapids where he also met and married Madeline Koster on June 27, 1947. The war found Gooch wallowing in the mud in the ETO, and after getting through the Battle of the Bulge unscathed, the Army saw fit to turn his piano playing talents loose on the civilian population of Norway. He was quietly discharged one pleasant spring day in his native New Jersey after 32 months service. Last summer he externed in the Paterson General Hospital, and next year will serve an internship at Iowa State University Hospital in Iowa City. Following this he will do general practice in Grand Rapids, New Jersey. " Qoco” dribbled into center court for the first time on September 3, 1926 in Cioles, Puerto Rico. Undertaking his premedicoi studies at The University of Puerto Rico he parlayed a pair of dancing feet and a sharp eye into a basketball excellence which has strengthened the attack of the Ponce Lions Basketball Club during his summer vacations; and a smoothly functioning " Latin " technique with the women that has yet to foil him at home or away as far as we know. Coco served as a junior intern at St. Joseph ' s Hospital in his Senior year. After a senior internship, spent fluttering nurses ' pulses, at Clinica Pila, Ponce, Puerto Rico this Latin Lothario expects to serve the citizens of Ciales as a general prac- titioner or a pediatrician. Quien sabe? aciden. eUx Fowler F. was born in the Lone Star State ' s Wichita Falls on March 8, 1920. A year at the University of Maryland and 3 years at Trinity College majoring in philosophy and economics landed him a B.S. in 1942, and then to round out his education he took his pre-med at Yale. Of 37 months in the Navy he spent 11 months in the South Pacific piloting dive bombers and fighters. Although he claims that his combat experience was " innocuous " , he is still struggling with his service incurred ulcer symptoms. While still in the Navy, he married Irene Anne Generous in Jacksonville, Florida July 1943. Two ripples in the serenity of their married life developed during medical school days: Ralph Robert, 2, and Bruce Law- rence, 1. Fowler spent last summer in cardiovascular research at Balti- more City Hospital. He will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimare. Sdcu €ind " Sparks " was unanimously declared perennial president of the Slide Projector Operators Union, which office he has ably filled between naps behind ye magic lantern. A dyed-in-the-wool New Englander, Cliff was born in Norwich, Connecticut on December 18, 1923. Not wanting to leave the frozen hills, he matriculated at Bowdoin College in Maine for his pre-med. The war found Cliff in the Navy Air Corps serving as a pilot of carrier based aircraft in the Pacific. He is a member of Kappa Sigma, and the Connecticut Medical Society. On June 21, 1947 he and Helen Louise Gilbert, another New Englander, were married. The Wm. W. Backus Hospital in Connecticut used his services during the past two summers and he will intern at Waterbury Hospital, again in Connecticut. ScmoH Gelsenkirchen was once a preHy little town in Western Germany, and it was there that Ernie entered the folds of the Wolf family on February 23, 1921. In 1939 a change in political fancies in Germany resulted in the emigration of the Wolf family to our foir land and the presence of this very personable guy in our class. During the war Ernie served os a medical technician in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and is reputed to be a handy man with the counting chamber. He received his pre-med at The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland School of Phar- macy. A member of Phi Delta Epsilon, he has been vice consul and senator in that fraternity. Ernie will intern at the Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. TiJilUam o€i t Lfid Weighing in at Hagerstown on March 9, 1923 at 8lbs. 2oz. with his diapers soaking wet, ' ' Doc " had squirted up to a 6ft. 4in. when, with a B.S. from the University of Maryland, a year ' s stint at the University of Maryland Dental School, and a year ' s research on filariasis at Johns Hopkins School of Hygeine behind him, he first towered amongst us. Treasurer of the Nu Sigma Nu, he externed at Casualty Hospital in Wash- ington, D.C. where twixt I.V. fluids, progress notes, and falling arches he successfully pursued Margaret Mary Hammet, technician, object: matri- mony. On August 27, 1949 Margaret Mary let him catch her in front of the altar at a pretty church wedding. " Doc " , a future Hagerstown G.P., will intern at Garfield Memorial in Washington, D.C.

For all that, our cadavers lay on gleaming, well lit, stainless metal amid airy modern accommodations in- stead of, as in days happily past, in " dark dissection dungeons " . White coated, dedicated, intense, we invaded the innermost privacies of those discarded tem- ples of humanity. Day by weary, stench-increas- ing day we progressed from alcolyte to novice, to intime in the labyrinthine maze of fact and fascial fancy of which Anatomy consists. " You must keep the wrappings wet! " " No! No! a butcher is more gentle " " Und now, I will draw a little sketch. " " What are the re- lationships of . . . ? " " Name the branches of . . . ! " " Where does the . . . muscle originate? Where insert? " The exhortations, the damnings, the infrequent, treasured praise, the questions, all became a litany-like background for the work of dissection. Then gradually the answers came more readily and Drs. Uhlenhuth, and Figge, and Smith smiled more frequently, and even allowed upon occasion that we were learning " a little anatomy " , and deserving of the " high privilege of human dissection " ! EDUARD UHLENHUTH, PH.D Professor of Anatomy Head of the Department We soon learned to live with the smell of cadaver. Dr. Karl Mech points out the Sartorius to a worried four. Dr. Vernon E. Krahl and friend. Dr. R. Dale Smith describes an adequate pelvis. EMBRYOLOGY HISTOLOGY This department, now presided over by the same Dr. Figge wha aided and abetted our assault on gross anatomy, was in the days of our pristine glory as Medical Frosh presided over by Dr. ' ' Ducky " Davis and his able assistants. Dr. ' Honest " John Lutz and Professor " Ree Bob! " Harne. With the aid of an endless supply of slides and a limitless fund of patience and good humor, this hardworking trio gave us the much needed insight into the origins and the microscopic anatomy of our future patients. " We study the normal that we may know the abnormal " was the keynote of the good Dr. ' s labors with us. In fancy, in models, in slides in a dark sleep producing room projected, we followed the ova and sperm to blastomere; we followed the blastomere to ectoderm and endoderm and mesoderm; we followed the " derms " to kidneys and hearts and fingernails and such. Over and over we retraced the evolving and diversifying pattern of human growth, our eyes glued to a microscope ' s eyepiece; our ears tuned to " Ducky ' s " informative quaver. We ' ll always remember Dr. Davis ' haunting cry, " Now, gentlemen! " The Sciatic, Dr. Phelan? CARL L. DAVIS, M.D. Professor of Anatomy, Retired FRANK H. J. FIGGE, PH.D. Professor of Anatomy Correlated for the first time with Neuro Physiology, which was newly inserted in the frosh schedule, neuroanatomy introduced us to the intricacies of the central nervous system. Dr. Davis ' bold and forthright exposures, effected by the seemingly casual flick of his canny thumb, never failed to amaze us, and nearly always defied imitation. However, " Ducky " and his two assistants. Prof. Home and Dr. Lutz, soon had us so thoroughly indoctrinated that we skipped in and out of the bewildering arrangement of nuclei, fasiculi, and radiations with something approaching assurance in the dissection of the human brain. A little " brain work " by Drs. Nichols, Lutz and Harne. EMIL G. SCHMIDT, PH.D. Professor of Biological Chemistry Head of the Department BIOCHEMISTRY Sugar 5822! Dr. Emil C. Schmidt racked his chalk and strode out amid the rumble of appreciative laughter as he capped his lecture with a punch line memoric for the qualitative identification of sugar in the urine. So it was, what with one stratagem or another and a modi- cum of hard work and midnight oil, that Dr. Wylie (who then doubled in brass as professor of Biochemistry) and his staff taught us the subject. For many of us ' ' gel ' " was merely a collo- quialism for quail until we had heard out the Dean on colloid chemistry as applied ' to the human body ' s physiology. Other of our notions were equally quaint no doubt, but we gradually learned the origin, function, and union number of all the enzymes and hormones from os to anus. This converted our heretofore relatively simple ideas of a gut composed of mucosa, submucosa, muscularis, and serosa into the concept of the gut as a chemical cartel whose interlocking subsidiaries worked night and day to confound freshmen medical students and incidentally do some secreting, excreting, and just plain eating. We delved into the stucty of respiration and immediately this simple matter of sucking in air and blowing it out again became a complex system of pH ' s, 0., tensions, buffer pairs, par- tial pressures, the electrochemical affinity of oxygen for acid as compared to basic elements and respiratory enzymes. Somehow we managed to go on breathing, though some of us got slightly blue in the face at times. We balanced the equation . . . . . . . . But we missed . . . . The man who designed such chaste simplicity as Vit A,B,C, etc. as a front for those interminable carbon chain formulae could probably simplify bureaucratic Washington ' s hydra-headed personnel roster without lopping off a single head. At any rate, organic formulae take some fancy me- morizing no matter what they are called. There were of course extensive sojourns in the laboratory associated with the aforementioned theoretical considerations. There, hopelessly en- tangled in bunsen burners, test tube racks, water baths, and ring stands one tried calling Sugar 5822 with varied success; or if blessed with the luck of the Irish, the patience of Job, and a flair for the impossible, one consturcted dialyzing membranes that dialyzed instead of at the crucial moment perforating; or prepared solutions of Hb with the absorption lines of Hb, instead of LiCI or something else equally fantastic, when viewed through the spectrometer; or if one were Fortune ' s favorite child finished all experiments in good order in time to catch a late afternoon show — don ' t lock ' em in hereinafter. Doctor! That last line ' s a joke! PHYSIOLOGY WILLIAM R. AMBERSON, PH.D. Professor of Physiology Head of the Department Physiology as we recall it is a completely frustrating admixture of sooted drums that wouldn ' t stay sooted, and white coats that always were; compounded with scholarly and completely unfrustrated lectures by the gentlemanly Dr. Amberson, the laconic, forceful Dr. Dietrich Smith, the quiet spoken Dr. Oster, and the acid Dr. Andersen. However, in retrospect, it is the high adven- ture of the laboratory we will recall most vividly; where due to the perversity of things animate and inanimate we spent those long heartbreaking afternoons smoking millions of miles of glazed paper, to preserve, if fortune smiled, an inch or two of " representative rec- ord " in the shel lac ' d soot; where using each other for subjects we became familiar with in- tricately interlocked behavior of respiration, circulation, and metabolism; where day by day we exposed the functioning of that wondrous sentient machine, the human body. Dr. Dietrich C. Smith, Dr. Shipley, and Stan Phrenology cut a drum. BACTERIOLOGY FRANK W. HACHTEL, M.D. Professor of Bacteriology Head of the Department Who cannot recall Dr. HachteTs soft spoken lectures on the ubiquitous bacterium and the uses of agar; that mad rush to the opthalmolo- gist when confronted with well covered black- boards of submicroscopic writing; the earnest, feeling lectures of Dr. McAlpine on the infec- tious nature of water and milk, and his ' constant crusade against a dangerously prevalent faith in their purity; the afternoons spent differen- tiating building vibrations from bacterial mo- tility; the unknowns that invariably fermented atypical sugars, changed staining characteristics, grew on the wrong media in heretofore undes- cribed colonies, and were far too easily con- taminated by ' ' sneezes and unflamed loops " ; that factum factorum par excellence, Joe; those typhoid booster shots suspended in the distilled essence of a mule ' s kick and cobra venum; those tiny agglutination tubes in which someone else always shook up what had settled out; the mathematical maze of a titre protocol? The man with his hand up! You, sirrah! didn ' t " sophomore " here For it was in our sophomore year we learned Koch ' s Postulates, the diagnosis of bacterial disease, the principles of immunization, and the preparation of bacterial vaccines. Micrographia Levin ' s legerdemain HI V- ■ 1 ' Jii l-k 1 Ir f ni« ' ■ f PHARMACOLOGY I j JOHN C. KRANTZ, JR., PH.D., D.Sc. Professor of Phormacoloy Head of the Department It is called the ' ' hour of charm " when Dr. John Krantz unfolds the mechanisms of the drugs in the physicians pharmacopeal " arma- mentarium " . Day by day in the lecture room and laboratory the erudite professor and his capable corps of assistants made comprehensible to us as sophomores the rationale of what had heretofore been only the heiroglyphics of a doctor ' s traditionally illegible prescription. But Dr. Krantz did more than teach us properly to prescribe. He fired our imagina- tions and breathed life into Gtt ' s, iii, tid, p.c., by sagely interlarding the magic of history and the personalities of those sacred greats of an- tiquity into his subjects, so that forevermore a pharmacy can be for us no dim lit tier of tiny boxes and dust filled jars, but must always be a treasure trove of inspirational reminders of noble medical traditions. PATHOLOGY HUGH R. SPENCER, M.D. Professor of Pathology Head of the Department General pathology in the sophomore year is a confused state of mind, complicated by rapid- fire lectures and two hundred odd slides repre- senting the diabolical variations of the Dali- esque world of human disease seen through the low power field. The whole thing was patently impossible! That was our single certainty as we faced the task of preparing a hundred odd sketches for Dr. Robert Wright ' s dour ' approval and ourselves for the final practical. Having learned to differentiate early and late Hodgkin ' s, and phrase our complete cer- tainty in chaste and guarded technical language amenable to complete reversal of interpretation should we blunder once more, we entered the third year course in gross pathology. In the jar-lined cubicles of the Pathology Museum we peered at monsters and felt a measure of success when we could differentiate a consolidated lung from a normal liver. " Autopsy reports must be in ' within two weeks " Dr. Wright ponders the life cycle of the ec- chinococcus. Dr. ' ' Soft Hearted " John W. Wagner Neuropathology Dr. Dexter L. Reimann Surgical Pathology The responsibility for our successful completion of the course must be shouldered, whatever their feelings in the matter, by: Dr. Spencer, whose deliberate, lucid presentations placed the rock of reason in the shifting sands of bewilderment; Dr. Reimann, whose breezy, fast-spoken simplifica- tions added spice to the course and shed no little light on the subject; Dr. Wagner, The Elaborate Efucidator; Dr. Wright, who steadfastly insisted upon our being 100 per cent right; Dr. Warner ' s capsule reviews punctuated by the conga rhythms of the BCH steam pipes; and a host of others too numerous to give individual mention in this limited space, but all of them fully guilty of having done their unstinted " damndest " to teach us pathology. To say this, and nothing more of an experience in pathology is like saying " the earth is a sphere, period. " In the senior year, in the CPC ' s, we came to appreciate pathology further — as the harsh, honest light of after thought and reason revealing our mistakes and underlining our limitations, pathology becomes the nagging voice of scientific conscience that will make of all of us better, more humble physicians. Dr. Albert E. Goldstein C. U. Pathology Dr. C. Gardner Warner BCH Pathology Reviews CLINICAL PATHOLOGY MILTON S. SACKS, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine Head of Clinical Pathology Remember how bled out and anemic looking everyone became as the deadline for coverslip- pulled smears closed in on us; and how willing someone else always was to stick you? Sure you do, that was in Clinical Pathology, Dr. Milton Sack ' s course. Y ' know — the one where the only typical slides you s aw all year were in the final practical? And all the exam ques- tions were easy? Who ' s got their tongue in their cheek? Not me — that ' s bubble gum. I ' m talking about that course where you become a hematologist, a urinologist, a fecologist, and a parisitologist. You must recall it — the one where you learn to balance water? The lab where, if you change eyes carelessly, you ' re looking down your neighbor ' s microscope, and if you reach for that " clean ironed cotton hand- kerchief " too fast you pick your buddy ' s pocket over in the other aisle. Come now, the place where Rh isn ' t Rita Hayworth ' s old initials and everybody ' s still excited about it? You " remem- bered all the time " ? " How could you forget? " I dunno, I often wondered about that myself, but it was a darn good course anyway. Did you say atypical. Miss Hellen? Feco logy PSYCHIATRy The course in psychiatry at the University of Maryland is entering its renaissance, with Dr. Jacob Finesinger as Michelangelo. His task is most formidable, for he seeks not only to work in the brick and mortar from which will rise a psychiatric hospital, but also to shape the attitudes of students and faculty in order to develop a wider and more accurate under- standing of the role of the physician. Besides the unfolding of the " doctor-patient relation- ship " , a teacher-student relationship has been established that might well be emulated. In this endeavor he will find many disciples. One has already emerged in the person of Dr. Lisansky, who serves to bridge the fast-narrow- ing gap between Medicine and Psychiatry. We of the senior class have watched his development in this new medium from his first timid attempts to his now confident " Ah yes, and how does that make you feel? " Of our psychiatric courses in the first three years, suffice it to say that with a very few notable exceptions, they were largely uncon- vincing. Today the graduate who sees only the lesion and not the patient is a rarity, and even he is beset by doubt, for it is becoming increasingly apparent that the path of such an individual leads but to Pathology. To a few of us psychiatry will be a life-work; to all of us it will remain, consciously or not, a part of our work and of our lives. For with our new-found approach the patient who was formerly " a crock " has become an invigorating challenge, and the ' Practice of Medicine once more assumes the mantle of Humanity. JACOB E. FINESINGER, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry Head of the Department MEDICINE T. NELSON CAREY, M.D. Professor of Clinical Medicine Chairman of the Department of Medic The first opportunity we hod to become acquainted with the Department of ' Medicine and the Department of Medicine with us, 9c- curred in the first semester of our sophomore year when we were taught the art of medical history taking. Dr. Wolff, in his quiet way, emphasized from the very beginning the value of becoming a thorough physician. We learned, among other things, that negative as well as positive findings must be included in a good medical history. With the weapons ' obtained during the semester, i.e. our " little green book and stethoscope " , we trouped into the second semester of our sophomore class. At last we were to learn the fundamentals of inspection, palpation, percussion, and ausculation. Now this, we felt, was the real art of medicine. Our subjects — ourselves. We were putting into prac- tice the knowledge gained from lectures by Drs. Wolff and Reiter. We graduated from exam- inations of questionably normal fellow class- mates to our first contact with patients. Dr. Bower: dear cc, urine, sputum, stool, CBC, PSP, BP, qd. " never had a sick day " Up to this point we felt that we weren ' t worth a used finger cot — we soon changed. The class was divided into small groups under different instructors, who took us to various hospitals throughout the city. At first the examination of real patients frightened us — this too soon changed. In addition to our practical work we were introduced to Cordon Wilson Hall where we developed muscle cramps and low back pain while attending the weekly medical clinics on some of the more common conditions such as Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia. In the third year the Department of Medicine was constantly with us. Our lecture course be- gan with talks on diseases of the cardio-vascular system by Drs. Love, Leach, and Scherlis. We were then exposed to the kidney diseases by Dr. Sacks, including the newer concepts in lower nephron nephroses; the respiratory di- seases by Drs. Fort, Langeluttig, Jacobson, Bryson, Serra, and Hartz; allergic diseases by Dr. Bu ' bert; gastro-intestinal diseases by Drs. THEODORE E. WOODWARD, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine Section hand at work. All I gots a toothache. Doc. HENRY J. L, MARRIOTT, M.A., B.M. Associate in Medicine Morrison, Dickey, Freeman, and Dehoff; met- abolic diseases by Drs. Carey, Eastland, and Acton; also lectures on arthritis by Dr. Lisansky. It can be seen that in addition to becoming acquainted with th e majority of diseases we also met most of the members of the Medicine Department staff. A weekly medical clinic de- signed to coincide with the daily lecture, material was held throughout the year. We received further training in physical diagnosis at various hospitals throughout the city, where there was available a wealth of clinical material. The emphasis was on cardio-vascular and respiratory diseases. Despite double masking and extra- long stethoscope tubing we all stood in fear of the red bug that bores holes in people ' s lungs. Five busy weeks were spent in the Medical Dis- pensary. Here we took histories and performed physical examinations on the new patients, ex- amined urines ad infinitum, recorded negative findings ad nauseaum, missed lunch, and ar- rived late for ensuing classes. We learned that Dr. Leach discourses on the cardio-vascular system. . . . hours spent . . . . .J- Si haircut isn ' t necessarily something acquired at the local tonsorial parlor, that it is possible to combine speed and accuracy, and that water- melon seed tea is good for urinary retention. All in all we felt ourselves fairly well grounded in Medicine; that is until Weil ' s disease came up on the final. Medicine in the fourth year was a different matter. Under the new program we spent four weeks at University Hospital and another four at Mercy Hospital where we were exposed to the charms of the feminine side of medicine and learned the routine of hospital procedure. On each of our assigned patients (the privilege of the house staff) we did histories, physicals, CBC ' s, urines, and stools, and it was our re- sponsibility to follow their therapy and course and present them on ward rounds. Although we were given a few lectures, emphasis was placed LOUIS A. M. KRAUSE, M.D. Professor of Clinical Medicine Sometimes a good vein is hard to find. It ain ' t the patient, it ' s the chart. Reflexes by Fearing, bedclothes by BCH, pa- tient by heck! upon the practical side of medicine and to further the illusion we were permitted (at University Hospital) to spend every fifth night in a well appointed room on the third floor, next to the colored male toilet (neither door is well marked which occasionally resulted in confusion). During these tours of night duty we were assigned new patients that we might follow a case from its insipency. A few of us even became experienced in following a bleeding ulcer with blood pressures every half hour and hemoglobin determinations q3h. Bu t then in the morning there was always a hot breakfast and the relief of adding our advice or grievances to the bulletin board in the little cu ' bicle on the first floor. At both University Hospital and Mercy, we peopled the medical specialty clinics, correcting diagnoses that had been been established in 1924, writing prescriptions for stuff A closeup of TB by Dr. Beacham High pressure area. of which we had never heard, learning how woefully inadequate is the average physician in matters allergic, and that blue soda bicarb tablets may be twice as potent as the red variety in a great many gastro-intestinal disturbances. We had graduated from the " ' hey, you " of the third year, and the dispensary nurses tagged us with a multitude of names, and occasionally we heard Dr., or if we were particularly hope- less, Dr. So and So, please . . . We owe a debt of gratitude to the house staffs of both Mercy and University for their cooperation, and a series of therapeutic lectures; to Dr. Woodward for his rounds in infectious disease, and his introduction to research procedures; to Dr. Sacks for his hemotology rounds; to Dr. Mor- rison for his conferences in gastroenterology; to Dr. Marriott for his enlightenment on EKC, and the many other pearls he cast before us; and to many visiting men who gave so freely of their time and effort that we might sharpen our diagnostic and therapeutic acumen. EPHRAIM T. LISANSKI, M.D. Associate in Medicine Drs. Peters and Smith go on oxygen, students take gas. Dr. Lisansky: there may be some organic pathology here. HARRY M. ROBINSON, Sr., M.D. Professor of Dermatology Head of the Department DERMATOLOGY SYPHILOLOGY ' ' Skin is lodged in the nether region " of the Old Dispensary. Here in on atmosphere below ' ' suspicion where even sainted grandmas are J suspects and the three R ' s are all Robinson, | we learn first as juniors to recite, and then as seniors to occasionally recognize skin lesions. The guiding spirit is beloved Dr. Harry M. Robinson, Sr., a professorial unguentum of equal parts: humanitarian, doctor, teacher, lecherously leering leprechaun, and barnum! As juniors, infected with the professor ' s enthu- siasm we raced the late, lamented, shetland- pony-of-a-dog, Mickey, for a view of the lesions, vaulting recklessly back and forth across the desks. As seniors, lack of canine competition i and our inherent dignity reduced frenzied os- cillations to a dead run in the open spaces of the Clinic. So thanks to Dr. R. and Co. we learned " skin " , learned to bet on lues in season, learned to doubt silver haired innocents, learned to wash our hands before and after looking at skin lesions, and often once more after finally mak- ing the diagnosis, and learned that teaching can be fun and learning practically painless — Gimme some skin, Man! Dr. Bereston pops a question. Robby lays on the diagnostic finger. ] Dry tap. Vagrant vesicles. We gave anti-syphilitic treatment. We did lumbar punctures. We pinched pimples, mashed maculae, uncovered ulcers and scraped off scales. We disappointed Robbie now and then by failing to observe a " well defined margin " , but his spirits would revive if he could get us to see " follicular plugging " or a " slightly raised macule " . We also learned about that motley, chameleon of a disease, syphilis; for when the chief had exhausted the day ' s cases, " You, Pete! " " Yah, Pop! " would ring out and then the professors would take over and hold forth on " Lues, the gay deceiver " and " the love bug " in technicolor detail. Pete ' s purple passion. The hell it is! PEDIATRICS K J. EDMUND BRADLEY, M.D. Professor of Pediatrics Head of the Department Pediatrics (it is a Creek word, you knowj was held in two sections, one at Mercy and one Qt University. The Mercy Section was lorded over by ' ' Little Caesar " Josephs and the other by red-topped " Blockie " Joslin. Little Caesar was spoiled early in the year when he had " I ' eager " Henson and " I ' beaver " Healy and Co. The worst time he ever had was when he got the " See no work, hear no work, and never speak of work " quartet of Coller, Cowen, Cra- craft, and Bisgyer. However, the Mercy Section got good training from " Pappy " , Moransky and Fineman and we will all remember them for their " pearls " — even though we were often stringing them along. The University Section slaved — at least they told everyone, but we know differently — under the whip of Joslin and the luminaries who graced the 5th floor. Other than the fact that the kids thought ophthalmoscopes were hammers and used them so, the dispensary was a wild place carried on by " Kiddies " Finklestein and " Bubbling-over " S. C. Click in fine fashion. However, croup tents, diarrhea, formulas, and bird cages notwithstanding, we will all remember the excellent esprit de corps that pervaded the department under Drs. Bradley and Friedenwald. Deitz ' s spinal approach to aorta. Dr. Click dangles doorkeys. " King-fish " Reggie calls de meetin ' to order. Dr. Bradley tunes in . . . Miriam hears a little static. CHARLES REID EDWARDS, M.D. Professor of Surgery Acting Head of the Departnnent SURGERY Deep, drawling incantations on the barber surgeons of the long robe, the Murphy button,, phlebothrombosis and thrombophlebitis ushered the Sophomore class on its surgical journey. Dr. Thurston P. Adams, more affectionately known as ' Turk " among confreres and disciples, was our patient and laconic guide into the mystic realm of basic principles. It was in the third and fourth years that Turk revelled in his glory. Here in bedside clinical sessions and in the operating room clinics he added many a pearl to our string. Another phase of sophomore surgery was conducted by Dr. Otto Brantigan and his staff in Surgical Anatomy. In many hours spent in lectures and at gross dissections in the anatomy lab they bridged the gap between anatomy in the abstract and clinical anatomy as applied to the study and practice of medicine and surgery. As Junior students we faced with awe and consternation the ponderous volume of Christo- pher and the multitudes of verbage associated with surgery. Dr. Harry Hull ' s morning lec- tures, however, always seemed to lighten the burden by extricating from the haystack the salient and practical points and leaving behind the minutiae to be argued by the theoreticians. Dr. Haase demonstrates the sinus flush for Jensen and Yeager. Dr. Howard Mays leans on diagnostic finger. " There ain ' t no such thing as a sprain until you ' ve gotten an X-ray. " " There ain ' t no definite signs and symptoms of appendicitis. " The grammar may not have been correct, but indelible impressions were left on the uninitiated minds. " The treatment of mechanical obstruc- tion consists of decompression, hydration, and operation. " Thus in three words we had what others took volumes to say. Questions fired at his students were not of the " guess what I ' m thinking " variety, but dealt with the every- day commonplace phenomena — not the " wierd beards " as he so aptly phrased it. Cryptic, laconic " Hullisms " , those expressions of prac- tical surgical value were as much a mark of the man as his fisherman ' s chapeau, the butt of many a student quip. Under the guidance of the OPD staffs at both University and Mercy Hospitals, Junior students incised and drained furuncles, applied casts to broken limbs, excised in-grown toenails and cleaned and dressed leg ulcers. The assistance of a more experienced nurse was fre quently invoked when a patient ' s bandage degenerated before the student ' s embarrassed gaze. On the sixth floor of the Bressler Building small groups of Juniors were initiated into the hallowed routine of the surgical " scrub " and " prep " .

Who can forget his terse reminder that " you ' re the assistant; you ' re supposed to assist, not just stand there and watch " . As Seniors we divided the two months of surgery between University and Mercy. Formal, didactic lectures were few, being replaced by in- formal seminars with small groups in which everyone participated actively, and where the patient was examined and questioned before the group. The University staff included Drs. C. R. Edwards, Yeager, Brantigan, Hull, Reifschnider, Adams, and Goughian. At Mercy Drs. Wise, Hutchins, Pes- sagno, Trimble, Garlick, Robinson, Phelan, Zupnik, and Loker guided the seminars. Advancement to the exalted post of Glinical Glerks was our reward for surviving the three preceding harrowing years (at least we could say " good-morning " to the doorman). We were assigned patients on the wards on whom we took histories, did physicals, watched the operations and observed the post-operative care and treatment. Urine exams and CBC ' s became miserable G.G. nightmares, but even the grimmest moments of stupor and despair were raised to pleasureable heights as we engaged in enjoyable Dr. Gray, Dr. Yeager, Professor of Glinical Dr. Pessagno takes the " old men " on surgical Surgery, and Dr. Swisher. rounds at Mercy.

But it was during our tours of duty in the Accident Room that we learned what a busy G.P s office must be like. Here we assisted in diagnosing and treating everything from lacerated fingers to spontaneous abortions. The Wednesday morning CPC ' s were highlights of wisdom and entertainment where the surgeons pitted their clinical wits against the coldly factual pathologists, both at times being perturbed by embarrassing student queries. Dr. Charles Bagley bestowed upon each Junior a collection of type- written sheets with instructions that all information therein was to be committed to our overburdened memory. The first exam was universally flunked, but shortly thereafter we convinced everyone that we were neither cerebral arteriosclerotics nor paretics and quickly straightened out our Hoffmans, Babinskis, and Rombergs. Dr. Bagley continued to conduct the senior neurosurgical instruction with the constant assistance of other members of the staff. Students were unperturbed by the pitiful expressions on the faces of patients as each in turn would mercilessly pound with reflex hammer and gleefully try to elicit ankle clonus. Pass the Priscol please. From pilot to rear gunner. Drop a stitch Dr. Evans? Wonder if that was a Colie ' s. In our senior year, we found ourselves catheterizing bladders, dilating urethral strictures, and palpating prostates. Dr. Toulson, in a series of lectures, demonstrations, and slides had set the stage in the junior year. Clinics and ward rounds in small groups and attendance at operations and upon the outpatients at both University and Mercy Hospitals rounded out the teaching program. Final oral examinations in G.U. surgery by Dr, Toulson added abundant humor to academic labors as the good surgeon, it seems, always joined in the conspiracy to pass even the thickest of us with flying colors. Dr Harry Hull ' s lectures and Dr. Milton Wilder ' s ward rounds at BCH introduced the junior class to the principles of orthopedic surgery. In the senior year, Drs, Voshell, Ullrich, and Wilder continued the program of didactic, clinical, bedside, and outpatient instruction at both University and Mercy Hospitals. With zest and gusto we splashed rolls of plaster of Pans in water and then tangled up the limbs of our buddies. With such solid experience we were soon plastering victims in the Accident Room. Pleasant respite from downtown Baltimore routine was furnished by trips to Dickeyville and the Kernan Hospital for Crippled Children, where discussions and demonstrations of physical and occupational therapy were included in the program.

ADAMS, M.D. " Professor of Clinical Surgery Assistant Professor of Surgery Before the junior class, Dr. Looper delivered lectures on Nose and Throat and Dr. O ' Rourke on Otology, supplementing their words with lantern slides. Lantern slides offered the knowledge-thirsty members of the class of ' 50 some of their most profitable moments, the prevailing darkness being quite conducive to meditative slumber. At first with hesitation, then with dexterity, we inserted tongue- depressors into mouths and specula into ears in our search for inflamed tonsils and punctured drums. Under the guidance of Drs. Zinn and Kayser at Mercy Hospital, we peered down bronchoscopes and esophogoscopes while our confreres held unwilling subjects on the table in the chamber of horrors. Dr. Monte Edwards, in his introductory words, included among his many titles " rear admiral " and " super duper pooper snooper " . In mild and soft-spoken words, he then explained the seat of trouble in matters proctologic. In dispensaries and clinics, we acquired what in some circles is considered a very rude habit by inserting instruments up the distal end of thirty foot tubes. In addition, the gloved forefinger became a fountain of diagnostic knowledge. In the latter days of his senior year, the student spoke with assurance as he ordered his patient to assume the angle.

DOUGLASS, M.D. Professor of Obstetrics Head of the Department Dr. Morrison; “Watch your diet. Come bock in two weeks. “ Encountering no cephalo-pelvic dispropor- tion, Dr. Louis Douglass pulled a model baby through an adequate model pelvis. Simple enough. He repeated all phases of the procedure with facility. This first demonstration convinced some of us as juniors that even DeLee and Greenhill was within the realm of human capa- bility. The words of Drs. Dixon, Kaltreider, Siegel, Savage, and Reese were readily com- prehensible. While in the O.B. dispensary, some of us even mastered the art of palpation with the aid of Leopold ' s maneuvers. However, the task on the threshold of which even the most courageous of juniors trembled, was reserved for a week of confinement at BCH. Since we worked at night while attending classes during the day, this became a test of human endurance. We delivered a few times, we observed more times, we blundered many times. Occasionally we could successfully feign ignorance, which considering our medical inexperience might be believable, but blood pressures and urinalyses through the night befell our miserable lot. BP ' s. Need more be said? In our senior year we consumed two concentrated weeks in obstetrics, the outside service being our exclusive domain. This entailed hours spent in some of Baltimore ' s finest slums. The pitter-patter of the feet of little mice across one ' s sterile field may be a distasteful consideration to the laymen, but the dashing men in white were called upon in the face of many unfavorable circumstances. Some of us left our namesakes behind to be borne for a generation by little bundles of joy. In the dispensaries we performed the manifold phases of obstetrical work. On the seventh floor of University Hospital, we were assigned pa- tients in labor and at times even our brighter members were reddened by a BOA in the hall or the labor room. Read ' s theory breaks down in Balto. Roth on the receiving end. J. MASON HUNDLEY, JR., M.A., M.D Professor of Gynecology Head of the Deportment GYNECOLOGy Dr. J. Mason Hundley, Jr. and his staff of capable assistants, Drs. Brady, Cornbrooks, Diehl, Diggs, and Dumler combined their varied talents during our Senior year to keep a steady flow of practical gynecological information emanating from the operating amphitheatre, the bedside, and the dispensary — all this to the everlasting edification of the eager senior stu- dent. And they made it interesting. We had b een fully indoctrinated during our third year with a lengthy series of formal lectures mostly by the ' ' Chief ' . We learned with amusement that " woman " might be defined as a ' consti- pated biped with a backache " . We were to hear about this on other occasions. We heard all dbout " father ' s tumor " , and were apprised of the fact that " cabbage heads " fall heir to far less of the complaints peculiar to the female of the species than their visceroptotic sisters. It remained for the Department of Surgery, however, to aptly define that oft performed Gyn. surgical procedure, supravaginal hysterectomy, as an operation in which one takes away the baby carriage and leaves behind the play pen. We learned further that the uterus, an organ of infinite possibility for pathology, could be radiated, scraped, hung up, or taken out. With counterfeited demeanor of professional imper- sonality we listened to the most intimate of feminine matters and acquired a knack and a knowledge concerning that gold mine of pathol- ogy, the female generative tract. Dr. Kardash, will it change my nature? Now, when was the last time — ANESTHESIOLOGY Didatically anesthetized by means of a rapid induction during our junior year, we progressed to a practical status, when as seniors we dis- pensed the " sleepy stuff " under the watchful eye of Dr. Nelson and his staff in the glittering cubicles opening to the east off the seventh floor surgical corridor. There in the misty, half awake of the predawn we gradually wakened under the apprehensive eyes of the surgical staff as the patient sank to the proper plane of oblivion, and we settled down to maintaining the desired relaxation without too greatly abusing the P-R-B P. This we learned in addition to basic anesthesiology: (1.) The speciality is an all important adjunct to good surgery requiring in its ideal practice a thor- ough knowledge of physiology and an infinite capacity for meticulous routine and exact ob- servation. (2.) Anesthesists should be bred with a blood pressure cuff growing from their left ear; a complete distaste for late morning sleep- ing; the ability to breathe pure ether indefinite- ly; and a prenatal course in the psychology of patients and surgeons.

EDWIN KNOWLES, JR., M.D. Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology Chairman of the Department In the junior year Dr. Freennan ' s energetic, enthusiastic lectures fended off Morpheus dur- ing the post prandial siesta hours and reviewed the anatomy and physiology of the eye. As seniors we, per force, began to see eye to eye with the patients, as armed with the knowledge gleaned from Dr. Knowles ' discrete, well de- fined, capsule lectures with the pearly margins (Dermatology was taken concurrently, y ' know!) we probed the secret fastness of their orbs. Professor Knowles also conducted ward rounds in the University Hospital, reviewing for our benefit the ophthalmologic pathology currently in the house. In the clinic, where we daily tangled forelocks and swapped dandruff with the patients in our direct ophthalmoscopic ex- aminations, Dr. Ruby Smith reviewed our cases, demonstrated techniques of examination, and finally by dint of her gentle but inflexible catechisms we began to use our ophthalmoscopes for examining eyes intelligently and fruitfully. Dr.. Osazewski, peering out from behind his inevitable cigar, too played a role in our intro- duction to perimeters, tonometers, retinscopes, etc. and their use in the diagnosis and treatment of the " Diseases of the Eye " . Dr. Ruby Smith discourses with pupils. What wall? ROENTGENOLOGY ' ' When in doubt, get an X-ray — get one anyway, to be sure " — so we ' ve heard. After you get same, how do you read it? To answer the question, we have called on the Drs. Kilby, Davidson, Macht, and Barnett, who have en- deavored to teach us the art of interpretation of those shades of gray. We look at areas of shadow and clearing, thinning and thickening, crater and mass — and wonder that so much can be seen in mere black and white. Fortuitous concadenation! After didactic lectures at City, we could at least talk X-ray. The fog that was an X-ray film began to clear when we became Seniors, for we had numerous conferences of watching X-rays — they were the nicest classes, where we always got to sit down in a dimly-lit room for a quiet, peaceful hour of just watching. At last we came to the practical aspect of looking at films of our own patients. The mysterious " X " in X-ray was gradually solved, and those films came to have meaning. Of course, it ' s still safer to read the reports of the Roent- genology Department. WALTER L. KILBY, M.D. Professor of Roentgenology Head of the Department Dr. Barnett, Dr. Davidson and X-Ray De- partment staff. S”=? The Class of 1950 is fortunate in that it is the first class to benefit by the revised senior curriculum instituted in September 1949. The result of many years of planning by several successive faculty committees, the outstanding feature of the new schedule is the division of the school year into fields of concentration embracing the major divisions of medical practice. The Senior student spends two months each on Medicine and Surgery, including the specialties in each branch. One month each is spent on Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry, with an additional month divided between Anesthesiology, Dermatology including Syphilis, and Ophthalmology. During each period the student ' s entire time is devoted to the current subject or subjects, except that on Wednesday the entire class meets for clinical pathological conferences and one or two formal lectures, including a weekly lecture in Public Health. Except for the Wednesday lectures, didactic instruction has been almost entirely discontinued, a second major objective in the formation of the new curriculum. Instruction is given by supervision during clinical clerkships on the wards and in the dispensaries, by attendance at staff and depart- mental conferences, and at seminars conducted primarily for the senior student. Almost without exception the Senior Class is enthusiastically in favor of the new system. In former days the senior year was a mad potpourri of unrelated subjects, in which the unfortunate student floundered around in a vain attempt to learn everything at once, with the result frequently that he learned very little if anything. Today with his time devoted exclusively to one subject, it is felt that far more can be, and has been, achieved. In addition, midyear and final examinations have been abolished; instead, written or oral examinations, or both, are given as each group finished a particular field of concentration. The class is divided into eight ten-man groups, each of which is subdivided into two groups of five; one ten-man group is engaged in each field, rotating through all divisions; one month each is spent on Medicine and Surgery at Mercy Hospital, including the Mercy dispensaries. All other teaching is carried on in the University Hospital and Dispensary. As a result of the small groups, a large amount of individual instruction and supervision can be given- The Faculty, on whom a far greater burden has fallen than in former years, has responded enthusiastically, as have Mr. George Buck, Super- Intendant of the University Hospital, and the Sisters of Mercy, of Mercy Hospital. Without exception every department has extended itself to the utmost to provide every facility to the Senior Class. As in any new scheme, weaknesses have been found; many have been eliminated as they appeared during the current school year. Some faculty members feel that they are not given time to present their subjects properly; others are not convinced entirely of the desirability of the new plan. On the whole how- ever, it seems safe to say that the curriculum is forward-looking in concept, that it has been wholehearted support from the Faculty, and an enthusist ' c reception by the student body.

Department Of Art As Applied To Medicine This department is maintained for the pur- pose of supplying pictorial and plastic illus- trations for teaching and publication by mem- bers of the Staff of the School of Medicine. For purposes of portrayal the scientist has at his disposal three mediums of illustration. The first of these is photography, the second is drawing or painting, and the third is modeling, molding and casting. For the needs of medicine these mediums are in constant demand and the Department of Art maintains facilities for providing them at all times.

It also perfected a lithographic technique of producing artificial plastic eyes which has eliminated the costly and time consuming task of iris disc painting so necessary in the past.

In this spirit the Delta Epsilon chapter has carried on and includes in its activities an annual lectureship featuring renowned authorities of the medical world as guest lecturers, a monthly scientific meeting led usually by members of the medical faculty of schools other than the University of Maryland the purpose being to provide a broader more intelligent outlook on many subjects of medical interest and of course many opportunities for meetings on a social level where lasting bonds of friendship and good fellow- ship are established to be maintained long after under graduate days.

On October 19th new members were initiated into the Chapter and on November 5th, a Sadie Hawkins Day party was given for the new members. December 17th was a big day for Beta Alpha; — the day of its annual Christmas Party for six orphans complete with Christmas tree and gifts for the child- ren. The day was spent dodging shots from new water guns and escaping the blare of Christmas horns. The first meeting of the new year launched a series of lectures with Dr. John C. Krantz as lead- off man. On February 5th Dr. Theodore Woodward discussed " Modern Antibiotics " at the sixth annual alumni banquet. March saw the new officers taking over their respective positions and the long awaited formal fraternity dance at the Cameo Club bringing the cur- tain on another successful year of Nu Sigma Nu activities.

CISLASON Archon LEO H. LEY, JR. Vice Archon JAMES R. CRABILL Secretary BENJAMIN ADELSTEIN T reasurer Shortly after the turn of the century a young group of doctors organized together and under the leadership of Dr. Harvey Beck initiated the Zeta Chapter of the Phi Beta Pi Fraternity. From this beginning the fraternity was active around the campus until the Second World War. The normal pattern gave way to the accelerated medical program and gradually the fraternity became inactive in 1942. A period of quiescense lasted until Octob er of 1947 when Dr. Wm. Duffy of the class of 1940 took the first step toward reactivation. With the aid of Dr. E. Uhlenhuth, Dr. Roderick Shipley, Dr. Will- iam Kammer, Dr. Frank Hacktel and Dr. Friedenwald plans were made for the reactivation. Four fresh- man, William Shea, Harry Knipp, James MacDonald and Raymond Clemmens were initiated into the Zeta Chapter and once again the Phi Betes were active on the campus. From 1947 till the present the fraternity has grown to an active membership of thirty four, and now occupy the two rooms above the book store " across the street " . During this half century era of strife and tri- umphs many men have become a part of this famous professional medical fraternity whose sole purpose is the betterment of the medical profession by the production of superior physicians. jL Fritz Knel I Wolverton Pillsbury Kroger Adams Greco Grubb Foley Walsh Burkort Andrews Bradley ' 32 Douglass ' 11 Knowles ' 35 Sacks ' 34 Ullrich ' 29 Carey ' 27 Hull ' 32 Revel ' 37 Savage ' 32 Woodward ' 38 ALPHA OMEGA ALPHA Wylie ' 12 Hankins ' 48 Mack ' 48 " To be worthy to serve the suffering ' ' Alpha Omega Alpha is a non-secret Medical Honor Society. It is composed of (1) regular members consisting of medical men and women who as undergraduates have given promise of becoming leaders in their profession or who later have attained such leadership, and (2) honorary members consisting of physicians who have attained distinction in any worthy line of human endeavor, and of persons, whether physicians or not, who have gained unusual recognition in fields related to medicine. The aims of the Society are the promotion of scholarship and re- search in medical schools, the encouragement of a high standard of charac- ter and conduct among medical students and graduates, and the recog- nition of high attainment in medical science of practice and related fields. The most prominent requisite of membership is high scholarship in a broad sense — scholarship that is more than a record of high average grades and facility in memorizing information. It connotes continuous industry, effectiveness in methods of work, facility in correlating facts and an intellectual grasp that permits application to new problems. Election to this society is not only a recognition of accomplishment as a student, but also an insignia of both promise and expectancy of leadership in some phase of medicine after graduation.

At present there are fifty six active chapters in the United States and Canada. Beta chapter of Maryland was installed on December 9, 1949 in a ceremony at the Hotel Stafford with Dr. H. C. Byrd, D.Sc., LL.D., Presi- dent of the University presiding. The charter was conferred by Dr. Walter L. Bierring, M.D., National President, Alpha Omega Alpha, and was ac- cepted by Dr. H. Boyd Wylie, M.D., Dean, University of Maryland, School of Medicine. The Chapter was installed by Dr. Josiah J. Moore, M. D., National Secretary, who presented Keys and Certificates of Member- ship to all new initiates. Greetings to the new chapter were extended by Dr. Alan M. Chesney, M.D., Dean, the Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, and an address, " The Hanor Fraternity in Medical Education " , was given by Dr. H. C. Weiskotten, M.D., Dean, Syracuse University, Col- lege of Medicine and Chairman, Council of Medical Education and Hospi- tals, A.M.A. Charter membership in the Maryland Chapter was conferred upon four- teen members of the faculty, five recent graduates, and twelve students in- cluding nine members of the senior class, and three members of the junior class- To this group will fall the responsibility of organizing the Beta Chapter, perpetuation of its membership, and continuation of the high ideals for which the Society stands.

Christian Medical Society The Christian Medical Society is a nationwide interdenominational organization of Christian physicians, interns and medical students with a two-fold purpose: (a) to present a corporate witness for Christ to the profession at large; and (b) to gain the mutual strength and encouragement afforded by meeting together for Bible study and prayer. The University of Maryland chapter is but one of twenty-odd groups in medical schools and centers throughout the nation. The local group be- gan by holding monthly dinner meetings at the YMCA five years ago. A year later, the monthly meetings gave way to weekly Bible studies, which at present are held from 5:15 to 6:00 each Thursday afternoon in the Student Lounge of the Gray Laboratory Building. Although membership is limited to medical students and physicians, those in allied fields are welcome. The meetings have been attended not only by medical students and interns, but also by dental students and nurses. At these weekly meetings, the Bible Study has been led by doctors and prominent businessmen as well as various ministers. Students of all faiths and denominations are welcome. A wide variety of topics have been used, and each address is followed by an open discussion in which everyone is free to participate. The discussion, however, is always centered upon the Bible, which is held to be the inspired word of Cod (II Timothy 3:16), and upon Christ, who is presented as the Son of God and a Savior from sin for those who accept Him (John 1:12).

O The Lady With The Lamp MILDRED EILEEN CHRISTOPHER Hurlock, Maryland Chrissie ' s witticisms and cheerful per- sonality have made her one of the most popular girls in school. Collecting cow- boy records and swinging the Alleman- de-Ho and a Dosey-Doe are her hobbies. She enjoys reading everything from Dr. Elliot ' s Harvard Classics to Dr. Kin- sey ' s Report. Chrissie favors the Acci- dent Room, but is a " natural " in any field of nursing. A few words with her will erase a snarl that fairly shouts of C. I. distress and broken arches. The adage, " Put yourself in his place " comes easily to her- So to you, Chrissie, a Medal of Merit, for your optimism and workable philosophy! by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW March 1950 JANE KATHRYN BLUNT Centerville, Maryland Janie, known to some of us as J.B., is that cute little freckled blonde whose hilarious laughter keeps up the morale of everyone living on the sixth floor of the Nurses ' Home- We shall never for- get Janie ' s tonsils and toenail, which are now rare specimens in the Pathology Dept. After graduation, Janie plans to join the staff of her alma mater. By the way, Janie, are there any more cute little girls in Centerville who are in- terested in nursing? Best wishes and may all of your luck be good! Whenever a noble deed is wrought, Whenever is spoken a noble thought. MILDRED SMITH DUNCAN Linville, North Carolina Smitty, our only C.I., is a southern gal with a gentle voice and a serious face. She does her work with confi- dence and builds confidence in her co- workers. Her efficient work has won her the respect and adoration of pa- tients and staff. Her fiery temper, not too easily aroused, is long-lasting once it comes to the surface. After two years in the Navy, the floor is still a ' deck ' and the dining room a ' chow hall ' . Plain and outspoken in her every manner, she ' s tops any way you look at her. Future: Bud, Jr. and Arabia in the fall. MARIE BARBARA CORECKl Baltimore, Maryland If, before receiving your O.R. train- ing, you would like to know the duties of a scrub nurse, just ask Marie. This talkative brunette gave up her secretar- ial career to enter the nursing profes- sion. She is friendly, neat, vivacious, and an efficient nurse as well. If you lived on the sixth floor, you would be familiar with Marie ' s musical notes coming from the shower q.n. It seems as though many of her classmates have acquired a liking for Polish foods now, especially pastry. In the near future, Marie plans to change to " Mrs. " Best wishes, Marie. Our hearts in glad surprise! To higher levels rise. iriS : ■r« , - MARIE ELIAZBETH MANN Staten Island, New York To live with Liz Mann is to live with a dynamic force such as has hitherto been almost unknown. The girl verit- ably, like the proverbial Rice Crispie, snaps, crackles and pops. One can al- ways rely upon her to do and say the properly conventional things in the most deliciously personalized and unconven- tional manner. I remember one time in- deed, when she overturned a sailboat, not with muscle, but with sheer joie de vivre. My thanks to her for mushroom soup at midnight and seemingly inane conversations at 6 A.M. May we reap together some of the oats we have sown DORIS ELIZABETH HICKS Sparrows Point, Maryland If you ever need any pointers on the procedures and practices of night nur- ses just ask Doris. Most of her three years of training has been spent on night duty — more or " Les " . How she keeps that round face and those rosy cheeks on her self-imposed diet of to- matoes and tomatoes oniy is the mystery of the dietary department. Any future plans for Doris begin with Les and end with a vine-covered cottage. Her ever- lasting smile and out-standing ability in Pediatrics have left their imprints and will undoubtedly do likewise in the fu- ture. The Hdal wave of deeper souls Into our inmost being rolls. SELMA RUTH MERVIS Baltiimore, Maryland Have you ever strolled down a corri- dor in the hospital and noticed a charm- ing brunette walking nonchalantly with a tray of medicines? Yep, that is Mer- vis. Always a smile and a complaint for everyone. When reminiscing, we can ' t forget the food Selma bestowed on the third floor. The delicious apple cake and grapefruit candy. Wonder if Selma can cook as well as her mother. What about it " Bucky " ? Selma plans to remain in Baltimore and in the pro- fession until she receives her MRS. de- gree. Luck and happiness to you, Sel- ma! INEZ ALVENIA PARKS Greensboro, N. C. We remdmber blonde hair, blue eyes and a gay pleasant smile for everyone. We remember a southern accent which is anything but the usual slow drawl. We remember, " Yes, that ' s really my name, but please, just call me " Beanie " . We remember her pacing the floor im- patiently and muttering hopelessly, " Warren, won ' t you ever get here on time? " We remember last Christmas when she returned from her vacation in North Carolina with a sparkle in her eyes that matched the sparkle on the third finger of her left hand. But most of all, we remember " Beanie " . . . And lifts us unawares Out of all meaner cares. JEANNE ROWE SNYDER Pasedena, Maryland One reason why gentlemen prefer blondes is our Jeanne. Her blonde hair, blue eyes and cheerful, sympathetic manner are great assets in boosting her patients ' morales. Although seeming to be on the quiet side, she is always to be found in the middle of any student ac- tivity going on. To prove this, she is chairman of the Social Committee for the March class of 1950. Being one of the best student scrub nurses, she will probably always have a place in the operating room, but her future plans now only involve Bruce. Best of luck in the future, Jeanne! OCTOBER, 1950 DOROTHY ANN BARTZ Bethesda, Maryland We know Dottie as a carefree, easy- going person. She is an ardent dog lover — Fifi being her favorite. The cas- ual onlooker may think her shy, but those who know her realize that she has her very own sense of humor. She is a reliable and capable nurse- Everyone has days in the operating room that they will never forget — Dottie ' s was the day of her first G.U. scrub. Want to be a private G.U. scrub nurse, Dottie? Dottie aspires to higher education, and who knows? Someday she may have a training school of her own. Honor to those whose words or deeds Thus help us in our doily needs. GRACE FLORENCE BASSLER, B.S. Fulton, Maryland " Craca ' a charming brunette with the most expressive brown eyes, came to us after spending two years at Col- lege Park. There are some people who always are having the most unfortunate incidents happening to them — and " Craca " is one of them. Remember all the time you could spend in the Oper- ating Room, because you had so few classes, Craca? Her efficient manner, keen sense of humor, and pleasing per- sonality make her well-liked by every- one. Besides nursing, " Craca ' s " future includes raising Great Danes. In the near future, watch for signs reading, " Dogs for sale " ! EVELYN JOYCE BATES Baltimore, Maryland A welcome addition to our class, Joyce joined us in August, 1949, after transferring from Maryland General Hospital. Her will to work and easy manner have won her many friends and a well earned place in the class of ' 50. However, it was not all smooth sailing; for with a husband, a six months old baby and her housekeeping, Joyce has had more than a full time job. Yet graduation will mean no vacation for her — only another mile stone reached — for her ambitions extend to college and the Degree of Bachelor of Science. Best of luck to a most ambitious young lady. Jr Any by their overflow wmmiss mms s glgf 111 life- Raise us from what is low! ■ sa MARGARET MAY BEEDE Youngstown, Ohio Combine dork hair and wide-spaced green eyes staring into the future, with a radiating personality and a will to undertake any job at hand with sincer- ity and vitality and it is no wonder she was our choice for class president. Peg ' s greatest loves are music and phil- osophy. Full of fun and energy. Peg always has new ideas, and new places to go. She enjoys long walks, swimming, and has a great admiration for horses and riding. From teddy bears to panta- loons to wild horseplay to symphonies to formals. Yes, Peg is our all around sport. DOLORES ESMARELDA BLAHUT Solley, Maryland Behind those sincere blue eyes we find merriment and impishness. She is a girl we all love to have around, wheth- er it ' s to share her generosity or accept her understanding personality. She loves books, music and the outdoors. When she isn ' t headed for that bunga- low tucked away in the pines, she has the hall blocked with furniture from her room. The deft ability she displays in sporatic room arranging amazes all. Her favorite expression is, " Ya know what — I ' m happy. " Full of initiative and energy, " Dede " will progress in any field she enters. Best of luck to the very best. Thus thought I, os by night I read. Of the great army of the dead MARY ALICE DOWE Arlington, Virginia ' There ' s a chapter in our life called, ' Mary ' , " and what a chapter! Mary is our sleepy time gal and our mischief maker, whom you ' ll find full of ener- gy and spirit (if you catch her awake)- Frank and straight to the point, she says what she thinks and does what she pleases; we never know what to expect next — it ' s usually the unexpected. We ' ll never forget her short, short haircuts, those catnaps in class, the brownies her mother makes, her strong love for the South, her practical (?) jokes, her turned up nose, or her high ideals and ambitions. MARGARET PATRICIA FERGUSON Baltimore, Maryland I know a Ferguson named Pat. I may even venture to say I understand the enigmatic mechanisms of her personal- ity. One finds, on close inspection, the classic " Psychopathia Idiosyncrata " par excellence (please note Drs. Kraft-Eb- bing). For who would eat spaghetti with chopsticks in the small hours of the morning for the sole purpose of solidifying the oriental and occidental cultures? Please don ' t misunderstand; Ferguson per se is the typical, whole- some spirited American girl — it ' s just these nomadic, electrical impulses that emanate from I know not where, but gravitate to Ferguson as did Newton ' s apple to Mother Earth. The trenches cold and damp. The starved and frozen camp. JOAN ELAINE GLEASON Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Joan gradu- ated from Catonsville High School in ' 47, after which she took a course in Nurses ' Aid Training at University Hos- pital. From this she decided she wanted to be a nurse. Joanie will always re- member our probie days back in the annex, night duty on 3D, scrubbing for Dr. C.R.E., and parties at Sheppard and Pratt Hospital during her psychiatric affiliation there. She has a devilish, teasing manner and always seems to be laughing. Darned cute too, with dark brown hair and eyes to match. Future: General duty nurse. MARION GRAHAM, B.S. Gainesville, Florida Marion, our twinkly-eyed Florida cracker, is as enthusiastic and resource- ful as a side show barker when plan- ning our various social activities and whether she goes or not is irrelevant to her that is. The cute way she says, " No " on the telephone simply drives the more ambitious gals crazy- Does Bos- ton have more to offer than its outdated Harvard accent? Marion swims like Williams, dances like Powell, and rides the aquaplane like Graham. Needless to say, she is an excellent nurse. She loves music, concerts and, oh yes! — we almost forgot " Stupid, Junior " . How is that droll piece of felt? The wounded from the bottle plain. In dreary hospitals of pain. JEAN CROTON Parksley, Virginia Jeannie is a slim, fair-haired lass who hails from Virginia. She graduated from Parksley High School in ' 47 and came immediately to Maryland to join the class of ' 50. She loves to eat but never gains weight which perplexes Dr. Townshend no end! Lucky, lucky girl! She is our efficient class secretary and spends her leisure time selling station- ery. Always calm, cool and collected, she has a nonchalance that is convin- cing. She likes nursing very much and claims Pediatrics as her favorite field. All in all, she is a true and loyal friend, and will never let you down. MARY MARGARET GUYMON Ingleside, Texas Whenever you hear the plaintive strains of a cowboy ballad drifting down the hall, you can be sure Marge Guymon won ' t be far behind. To hear her talk, one would think Texas the only worthwhile spot on the globe. Actual- ly, she ' s quite a nurse, and is particu- larly interested in the field of psychia- try. Her favorite sports are horseback riding, swimming . . . and aviation, eh Marge? And you just haven ' t lived un- til you see her B-Bop tap steps. By the way, what about the transcontinental calls and her plans for the future? Well, we think you had better ask the General. The cheerless corridors The cold and ETHEL KIM HOM Baltimore, Maryland Known as " ' Kim " - Her famous last words are, " Tm telling you!! " And I ' m telling you, Kim has a quietly pleasing manner about her that makes her choice of profession a wise one. She is torn between outside interests at Temple Uni- versity, Washington College and Johns Hopkins. (Wonder what ' s wrong with our own homefront?!!) None of the passing class of ' 50 will ever forget the sombre moments in classes abruptly in- terrupted with laughter by her dry hum- or. She has a pair of Esquire legs, raven black hair and gullibility. To all around her, Kim spells fascination. Fu- ture: Honolulu, Hawaii. ... ' 1 stony floors. MARGARET VIRGINIA HERBERT, B.S. Seat Pleasant, Maryland A cheerful smile and the ability to take everything in her stride describes " Herbie " . " Herbie " , or Margie as she is sometimes called, is a very willing and conscientious worker, who has found her special field of nursing in pedia- trics. Before entering U.H., " Herbie " spent two years at College Park in pre- nursing. She will long be remembered for the night we celebrated becoming seniors — and the appendectomy that re- sulted afterward! In the three years that she has been here, " Herbie " has proven herself not only a good and true friend, but also an excellent nurse. Lo, in f-hot house of misery, A lady with a lamp I see CAROL MAREDITH HOSFELD, B.S. Stoneleigh, Maryland As we gaze across the crystal ball, we see Madame Zombie. It ' s really Car- ol, the nurse in our class with a friend- ly smile and sympathetic voice. We can ' t think of Carol without thinking of night duty. Carol came to us after spend- ing two years at the University of Mary- land. We have come to know her as an enthusiastic student, a capable nurse, and a loyal friend. In Carol we have a talented musician. With her we never know what to expect next — it ' s usually the unconventional. Now to add to Carol ' s problems, we ' ve made her treas- urer of the senior class. RUTH LOUISE HUTCHINSON Washington, D.C. Ruthie has a very cooperative dis- position and is liked by all. Always neat and clean in appearance and has 0 smile for all. She is a conscientious nurse who really enjoys her work. She likes the winter months — -with lots of snow. Her favorite food is salami and sweitzer cheese on an onion roll. She is always saying, " All righty " . . Her fav- orite pastime is trying to rhumba and she ' s usually found with Bob. She dis- likes night duty and hates to study. Fu- ture ambition is marriage to that man of hers — Bob. How about it, Ruthie? Pass f-hrough the glimmering room. And flit from room to room. LILA MAE JOHNSON Linthicum Heights, Maryland Serenity as an appetizer. Then take some sincerity and pleasantness, a slight pinch of temper, handful of ideal- ness, moderate amount of reservedness, extensive amiability. Mix well. Add a dash of sweetness with just a bit of blushing for color. Garnish with charm and serve with naiveness. Result: Lila Johnson. ELEANOR COLTER KELLEY Cumberland, Maryland " ' Mickey ' " , full of fun and laughter, will never be forgotten for her originali- ty. She is always heard saying, " Jeeps! Am I late! I have to get dressed! " Fav- orite pastime is getting the dents out of the fender before Bob sees them. She is a brownette with green eyes who knows her Spanish, and can really rhumba and tango; but we ' re all waiting to see her do that Irish jig! For was there ever a Kelley, who didn ' t like green and who didn ' t have just a touch of the Irish in her? Luck and happiness to our col- leen! And slow, os in o dream of bliss. The speechless sufferer turns to kiss LAURA JANE KIRKWOOD Streett, Maryland Anyone who has known our ' ' Kirk ' ' knows that " Hee-haw " of hers which has endeared her to us for three loud years- She is that tall, sophisticated beauty, who habitually will surprise strangers with her " spontaneous gaiety " . While often giving the impression of being quite aloof, she is a warm-hearted nurse and friend in every sense of the words. Her extra-curricular activities include twenty-four hour duty in 1037; frequent trips to Al ' s with Stevie for chili con came or spaghetti; and cutting Stevie ' s hair almost biweekly. Soon; Hawaii with Stevie. THERESA MARIE KRZYWICKI Nanticoke, Pennsylvania Theresa, known to many of us as " Dimples " , is a girl with a booming personality. Always laughing, and my, such nice big dimples! She is hardly ever seen off duty without Gene. Night turns into day when she is on night duty with you, and she can cheer anyone up with her carefree attitude. No task is too big or too small for " Dimples " . Patients can ' t help but get well with such a cheerful and capable nurse around. Marriage is Theresa ' s future destiny, so we wish the best of luck and happiness to her always. Her shadow, as it falls Upon the darkening walls. JACQUELINE B. LOAR, B.S. Cumberland, Maryland " Jackie " , — a bundle of vivacity, good nature and friendliness. She studied Pre-nursing at College Park and plans to go into psychiatric nursing in the fu- ture. B is her letter — " Bing " (no re- lation to Crosby), bubble bath, beauti- ful clothes, and books. An avid reader, especially of such subjects as, " Why Peo- ple Commit Murder " , she maintains al- most sole support of the Book of the Month Club. Her hobby is knitting and consists of a tie, two years in the making so far. Latest report has it that her goal is in sight — only 2,532 more rows! Good luck to Cumberland ' s finest! BARBARA LEE LONGEST Catonsville, Maryland " Nudie " is what most people call her. Her favorite pastime is sleeping and traveling back and forth from the hos- pital to her home, although she can fre- quently be found in a certain outboard motor boat. Her greatest love is cats, even though she is allergic to them. Her pet peeve is the trend her " bangs " take, especially after wearing a nursery cap- Her favorite saying is, " Anybody got a butt? " " ' Nudie " has a very pleasant per- sonality and is a conscientious nurse, well-liked by both patients and person- nel. Her ambition is to get hitched. As if a door in heaven should be Opened and fhen closed suddenly. NANCY ELIZABETH MEREDITH, B.S. Park Hall, Maryland Known as " Nanc ' Likes dancing, strawrides and reading — intellectual or otherwise. Seen either knitting argyles or sleeping. ' ' None " is a very compete person in anything undertaken, and is quiet except at about 3 A.M. She smiles readily at everyone, never seems to be in a hurry, and decorates the room with pictures of a certain Army Air Cadet. This hazeleyed lassie hails from Park Hall (we ' re told it ' s in the middle of southern Maryland). Destination: Vacation from pills and pa- ients and " Nudie " . But we ' re sure Nan- cy will make her home at University and work for her Master ' s Degree. GLORIA ELAINE MULLEN Toronto, Canada Three years ago, a whirlwind blew in and deposited a beautiful, blonde bun- dle at U.H. Said bundle turned out to be " Glo " , who has not yet stopped whir- ling. " Moon " has contributed much to all who have known her by her striking appearance, boundless energy, sincere understanding and that bubbling laugh having a personality all its own. She possesses an invaluable asset in her abil- ity to accept unpleasantness, forget it, and enjoy life. Besides claiming an en- viable scholastic standing, Gloria is an expert nurse and truly one whom we shall be proud to claim as a fellow grad- uate. The vision come and went. The light shone and was spent. BARBARA HARBART MUZZY Long Green, Maryland Well, if it isn ' t our Muzzy — grace and beauty describe her best. We can ' t call her one of the city gals, because part of her heart remains back in the ole county town — Long Green, Maryland. Always happy with few or no worries- Her main extra-curricular activity is " Buzz " , and I don ' t mean ringing door- bells. Barbara has a great fondness for homelife, and we predict for her a happy and successful career and marriage. With such a future to look forward to, who could wish for anything more? MARY BARBARA PHELPS Linthicum Heights, Maryland Barb is one of those jolly, happy-go- lucky nurses with a good disposition at all times. She has that winning smile and hearty laugh, which give her a per- sonality all her own. Although she is a regular outdoor girl, the joy of her life is " Ed " . With hardly a serious moment and a carefree perspective she enjoys her work and makes it enjoy- able for her co-workers. Her main in- terest at present is to lose the twenty pounds which she gained during her three years of training. Good luck to you, Barbara, in whatever you undertake. On England ' s annols, through the long Hereafter of her speech and song. MARY JOHN POUPALOS Charleston, South Carolina " Johnnie ' " . . . efficient and reliable; a cheerful addition from the ole South with her ready smile and calming in- fluence by the patient ' s bedside. The " Professor " , always ready to lend a help- ing hand with those extra classes. Sweet brown eyes filled with mischief make her one of the best liked girls in our class. Her charming personality will al- ways be remembered by her many friends. Her favorite song is " Carolina Moon " . Charleston ' s gain will be our loss, but many best wishes for happiness and success will always be extended from her friends here. Good luck, Johnnie! MARGARET ELIZABETH RITTER Baltimore, Maryland Psggy, who was born in Baltimore, graduated from The Notre Dame of Maryland Preparatory School. She is a brunette, full of fun and laughter, and who never tires of talking about clothes. She is known to be one of the fashion plates of our class. She likes to dance and even sings (when in the mood). Her favorite saying is, " Oh, Johnnie! " There is never a dull moment in the life of Peggy, so I leave saying — brown eyes, brown curls — what more for a cute girl! Best wishes for a bright and shiny fu- ture. That light its rays shall cast From portals of the past. MARTHA HOWARD ROLLISON, B.S. Hamilton, Virginia Martha Rollison, better known to her friends as Marty, will always be re- membered for her winning smile and her pleasing personality. Marty is usually found on her way to Hamilton, Virginia to see her main interest, Eddie. When we hear outbursts of laughter com- ing from a group, we know that Marty is the center of attraction and has come out with one of her hilarious sayings, which was really meant in all serious- ness. Marty is a very conscientious worker, and her wonderful sense of hum- or and way of winning friends have made her an outstanding nurse. MARY LEE SMELSER, B.S. Westminster, Maryland An attractive blonde, full of laugh- ter, describes Mary Lee. One will al- ways remember her broad smile through moments of sadness or happiness. Her main interest, other than nursing, seems to be centered around College Park, and the Sigma Nu fraternity. Mary Lee ' s favorite outburst will always be, " Do you know?! " , especially when meeting her roommate on the floors. Mary Lee will always be remembered for her good sense of humor, even through her mom- ents of fury. If one knows Mary Lee, they will agree, she is an ideal and true friend. A lady with a lamp shall stand In the great history of the land. GWENDOLYN LOUISE STATLER Chambersburg, Pennsylvania Cwenn, our fun loving, peppy, care- free girl from Pennsylvania, thinks there is no place on earth like it. She has sparkling brown eyes and hair to match. Frequently, she is found reading while listening to Beethoven ' s Symphony Num- ber Seven. Other times, she is found eating at the nearest restaurant. Gwenn is a great lover of sports and dancing. She enjoyed psychiatric nursing as well as the life at Sheppard- Oh! What a life! She plans to travel in the near future and then to come back to do general duty nursing. ANNE STONE, B.S. Washington, D.C. The hair is blonde with a definite white streak. The eyes are big and blue. The personality is dynamite. She ' s our own little mood girl. Being one of our five year students, she is studying hard for that B.S. degree. On the side, she dwells in home-spun poetry and South African Vildt music. The man of men in her life is, " Doug " . We hope he knows about her weakness for practical jokes. There ' s never a dull moment when " Stoney ' s " feeling her wild oats. Here ' s to " Stoney " , may her cup of hap- piness never run dry. A noble type of good. Heroic womanhood. MARGARET ANN WARFIELD Frederick, Maryland NO! You ' ll never see Maggie alone! Gay and bubbling with laughter, she ' s always in the midst of fun and mis- chief, takes great pride in calling her- self a Yankee, and blushes gracefully when told about her beautiful " bedroom eyes " . She has a deep interest for her work and those with whom she works. When asked which section of the hospital she likes best, she promptly replies, " twelfth floor " . Her sincere confidence and understanding have won her many good friends. We ' ll always remember her winning smile, sense of humor, stuff- ed animals and popularity. Her future at present points to far off Arabia. EDITH ELLEN VIEREGK, B.S. Tacoma Park, Maryland " Edie " , our tall, terrific blonde, was Gollege Park ' s loss and our gain in Oc- tober, 1947. Having completed her pre- nursing course as an outstanding student, she maintained that same standard at University Hospital. Sincerity, depend- ability, and sense of humor made her a favorite of our class (and the house staff). " Edie " can always be found wherever the strains of Brahms or Bee- thoven emanate, giving the old masters competition with the staccato of her knit- ting needles and laughter. Funloving and a good sport, she will be part of the memory of our student days. Good luck — future Mrs. William Wroe. Nor even shall o wanting here. The palm, the lily, and the spear. BETTY WATTS Gatun, Canal Zone Betty graduated from Cristobal High School, Panama in ' 47 and came to the states in the summer of that year. She likes the states very much, having been born here, but she ' ll never get used to the cold weather. She has terrific time try- ing to keep worm in the winter- Betty is always the same, happy and consid- erate. Her interests lie chiefly in sports and dancing. The part of training she likes most is duty on the surgical wards. In the future Betty wants to go back to Panama and continue with general duty nursing. MARGARETTE EDYTHE WEINHOLD Baltimore, Maryland " The spur of the moment girl " — that ' s our Stevie! Vivacious, gray -eyed, brown-haired, rebel, and ready to get into anything — except the Nurses ' Resi- dence. Mac ' s extra classes have made her quite on authority on OB. and " The Tower Inn ' s " cheesburgers, but, " Where are my ' turtle shells ' ? " . Foremost of all her drives is being an all-around efficient R.N., but her extra-curricular activities include Hank; editing with Mac; Al ' s chili con came and spaghetti; and hair-cutting sprees biweekly. She ' s the sassy pert-nosed version of Florence Nightingale, who can outsing Laura only on " Dixie " . Soon; Hawaii with Laura The symbols that of yore Saint Filomeno bore. JANET LORRAINE WHITE Salisbury, Maryland Jan always aims to please. Really does things with those eyes! She is ever conscious of others needs and desires. Her favorite foods are fried chicken and soft crabs. Likes autumn best. Loves to dance, swim and write letters- Dis- likes long bus rides and hates ta study. Always saying, " I haven ' t got a thing to wear! " . Her pet diversion is the Naval Academy. What ' s this about a fellow named, " Charlie " ? Future ambition is to find a sure cure for insomnia. She plans to do her nursing at Peninsula General Hospital in Salisbury. PHYLLIS JEANNE ZIMMERMAN, B.S. Washington, D.C. Last but not least, we have Phyllis, who boasts of being one of the tallest in our class. Her height is exceded on- ly by her pleasing personality, friendly smile, and her quiet, conscientious man- ner. Her half awake, troubled expres- sion at 6 A.M., lets us know how she feels about greeting the morning. Phyl- lis is a willing worker and is always ready with her unconscious sense of hu- mor. She enjoyed two years at College Park preparing for nursing. Now that she ' s social chairman of our class, Phyl- lis has found that " life has its little problems. " THE BLACK FIFTY EXPRESS It was with the mixed feelings of any traveller about to undertake a new and adventurous jou rney, that sixty-nine passengers paused to register and boarded the two sections of our train in 1947. It might be described as an air of anticipation, but there was that touch of uncertainty, and a new feeling of strangeness mixed with challenge that made those first few miles of the journey so important. We became well acquainted with our fellow travellers as we struggled up the steep grade of probie-hood. As we looked at the charted course, the route seemed long, and we wondered if such a journey could be en- dured. But, as the miles passed, we found difficulty only in keeping up with them. We busily learned the arts of lettering and speaking, became dictionaries of Anatomy, and curiously peeked at anything we could get under a microscope. Then came the first stop — that shining hour, when we stood on the platform with lighted candles pledging ourselves to our profession and proudly climbed back aboard, taking our places as part of the student body. Now occupying a better car, we were able to see more of the scenery and began to feel a deeper appreciation for the elements around us. Relief and night duty had been heretofore unexplored; but now they belong- ed to us, and we alternated vigils during these hours for most of the re- maining journey. Now near the end of our first year journey, we found ourselves divided into groups, sidetracking to the various specialties- We found ourselves as cooks, paging Apple Brown Betty, gaining pounds on milk shakes and fixing the most appealing trays? ? ? We faced Obstetrics with cord sets in our pockets, one ear out of our scrub caps, listening for that first sound of a B.O.A., teaching new mothers, and walking endless corridors to and from the ' ' angel factory " . Next stop — Towson, where we spent a three month sojourn at Sheppard Pratt Hospital, spiced with those home-made cream puffs, long hikes in the country, and that one late leave ' til midnight each week. We wondered at times who should be locked up and occasionally locked up the wrong people. In Pediatrics we tried our maternal skills with those lullabyes and stories(?); and in vain we tried to keep Reggie from eating everything in sight. We ' ll never forget those homemade cokes, those sleepy nights in the Premie and little Roberta — We were confronted with a real challenge in the operating room, being placed on a pedestal (but only in accordance with our height). We wit- nessed the thunder and calm of a storm, of which we were an integral part, scrubbing buckets and walls, and staying spotless and perfect. Yes, we witnessed real drama, both comeday and tragedy — and we loved every min- ute of it. We were not only sidetracked for work, however. For early in our trip we decided that all work and no play would make ' “ ' 50 " a dull class. So, with this in mind, the " Black 50 " set out to uphold its name in ex- tracurricular activities. We partied after hours, celebrating anything and everything, and were well represented in every activity — from the small informal dances in the nurses ' dining room to the Xmas and spring formals. Our anniversaries, however, deserve very special mention for they were probably celebrated the most extravagantly. Our trip now almost ended, seems short but full of memories dear to each of the passengers on " The Black Fifty Express " . Last Will and Testament We, the graduating class of 1950, being of questionable nninds and using no judgment, do hereby bequeath and bestow to the proletariat; these our most treasured possessions in this our last will and testament. Janie Blunt — leaves her love for the O.R. to Sara Beatty. Eileen Christopher — leaves her crackerbox, complete with closet and outside spotlight, to anyone else who can fit in it. Marie Gorecki — leaves to settle down as a doctor ' s wife. Doris iHicks — wills her tomato diet to Peggy Jones. Liz Mann — before she leaves for Capri, leaves her ability to " get around " to Roxey Stambaugh. Selma Mervis — leaves her love for quiet at bedtime, es- pecially, to future occupants of the third floor. " Beanie " Parks — leaves all of the Pharmacy students (ex- cept one) to any girl lucky enough to captivate them. Millie Smith — leaves her concern for her patients to the Nursing School. Jeanne Snyder — leaves her tall, slender figure to the girl who puts on the most weight while in training. Dottie Bartz — magnanimously leaves one stale cheeseburger to the starving Armenians. " Graca " Bassler — leaves her love for sardines to anyone who can stand the smell of them. Joyce Bates — leaves her more detailed study of O.B. ' til she finishes training — she hopes. Peg Beede — leaves her love for Shep — herd dogs. " Dede " Blahut — leaves her remains to the starving dogs in the court yard. Mary Alice Dowe — leaves her roller skates to Jay ' Zahrendt.

Marion Graham — leaves her knitting talent, to make sure Dowe doesn ' t ambush her anymore. Jean Groton — leaves her love for Pediatrics to Joanne Clark. Marge Guymon — leaves to Doris Stevens, excerpts from her thesis, " Human Relations Up to a Certain Point and How to Keep Them at That Point " . Margaret Hetbert — wills an automatic pouring arm to the Formula Room. Ethel Horn — leaves her extemporaneous humor — it ' s gotten her into enough trouble. Carol Hosfeld — so that she may please Dr. Carey, leaves her Palmer Method penmanship to Marion Hecht. Ruthie Hutchinson — leaves her shining eyes to anyone who can keep them shining through three years of training. Lila Johnson — leaves her other brother to anyone fortunate enough to catch him. " Mickey " Kelly — wills her way with Dental students to anyone who is interested. Laura Kirkwood — leaves her laugh to anyone with the nerve to use it. Theresa Krzywicki — leaves her carefree personality to all the underclassmen — they ' ll need it. " Jackie " Loar — leaves her hair cut to Rosemary Morgan. " Nudie " Longest — leaves her allergy to cats to the future classes. Nancy Meredith — wills a forever sleeping roommate to Maggie Showell. Gloria Mullen — would leave her knitting needles, but she will be needing them for future " little ‘things " . Barbara Muzzy — leaves her fallen arches to all the other unfortunates. Barbara Phelps — leaves to all future nurses, her brains, both ounces. Johnnie Poupalos — leaves her Southern accent to Jean Galton. Peggy Ritter — leaves her big brown eyes to Borden ' s. Marty Rollison — wills her black hose and her days on 3B to Janie Kelly. Mary Lee Smelser — wills her endless months of night duty to Ellen Schuster. Gwennie Statler — leaves her mild temperament and even disposition to anyone " blah " enough to need it. Anne Stone — leaves her white forelock to all those who tried with H 2 O 2 . Edith Viereck — leaves all her earthly possessions that fell from 542 ' s window — that Mullen didn ' t retrieve for her. Maggie Warfield — leaves her B.R. eyes to anyone who can use them as well as she has in the past three years. Betty Watts — leaves 3B . . . Thank Heavens! " Steve " Weinhold — leaves her hair-cutting scissors, so that Hank will stop calling her " Baldy " . Jan White — leaves a weary, well-worn train track between Baltimore and Annapolis. " Phyl " Zimmerman — leaves Mr. Stiffy and the Turner- White Casket Co. ' s telephone number to future prac- tical jokers. The third floor of the Nurses ' Home leaves " Homer " , the only man who has spent three solid years in the Nurses ' Home to anyone who appreciates having a man around the house. To our Lecturers and Instructors — we leave more wide awake students. To U.H. — we leave our old uniforms for new bedpan covers. To Miss Gipe — we leave our hopes that all her fondest ambitions for the furtherance of the school may soon be a reality. To Mr. Buck — we leave our thanks and appreciaton for all that he has done in the short time he has been with us. So it is, with the fondest of memories and many smiles we leave, convinced that we were most fortunate to be members of the infamous class of 1950. THE PATRONS The publication of a book of this sort is obviously on expensive proposition and would not be possible if it were not for the interest and generosity of the Faculty and friends of this School of Medicine.
