M.D. HIS PICTURE At reunions, when classmates meet so reflectivelv, Sparring at each other with choice memories. Oj all the pictures painted in jond recall. One portrait shall be seen with amazing repeti- tion : And this one must, oj necessity be the most color Jul. If it is to be a true likeness, many fine things it must convey; It must shoiv an avid student of his field, given to accuracy, .4 teacher of his arts, gifted with clarity, A physician to the ill, dedicated to service, A man oj warmth and cheer, loved by his fellows. The smile must be there for humor, and a wink jor mischiej. The painting must be jramed in gold, jor respect — and then . . . It must be titled, " Robbie " ! ANOTHER MAESTRO the Symphony oj Lije, The Composer asks. That each part be played in harmony with the theme. Some, hoivever. play their tones with quality apart. And jrom their lives a song is born that lends rare virtue. In this beloved man ' s lije such music is heard. How can this song, written in his honor, reflect. The years oj tireless effort to teach the truth he knoivs? His words have been a standard, ever clear. Guiding many in their quest jor Sophistication. Study oj the smallest oj God ' s creature brought to him a zeal. Expressed in genuine affection jor the higher order, mankind; And a virile interest in all oj lije that is constructive. Little wonder that his bright notes oj melody. Stand out in the symphonic score.

During the forty-two years in wliitii he has been with the lniversit . he has played a prominent part in its growth from a small agri- cultural college to one of the nation ' s leading schools. Dr. Byrd first came to the University as a Student. He graduated in the class of I ' JOo and relumed after four years as an English instruc- tor. He was later coach of the football team and while still in this capacity served as Assistant to the President. It was in 1936 that he became President of the I ' niversity and remained in that post until January of this year.

Miss Loretta Conway Secretary to the Dean ... to her the Editorial Staff gives thanks for an ever helping hand. Maurice C. Pincoffs, M.D. A Chicagoan by birth. Dr. Pincoffs graduated with a B.S. from the University of Chicago in 1909. Journeying to Baltimore, he graduated from the Johns Hopkins Medical College in 1912. Up to the first World War, young Dr. Pincoffs practiced medicine in his chosen city. Baltimore. When the United States entered the conflict in 1917, he volunteered for active duty, winning the D.S.C. and Croix De Guerre. He returned to Baltimore after the conflict to resume his prac- tice and engage in medical research. Shortly thereafter, in 1921. Maurice Pincoffs was made Professor of Medicine at the University of Mary- land Medical School. At the death of Dr. Gordon Wilson in 1932. he became head of the depart- ment of Medicine. Once again in World War II, when his countrv called, he enlisted and was elevated to the rank of Brigadier General. He is editor of the Annals of Internal Medicine and Assistant to the President of the University as regards the Medical School. He has been the civilian advisor to the Secretary of War, Chair- man of the Commission for Medical Care in the State of Maryland. President of the American College of Physicians, and President of the Mary- land Medical Chirurgical Faculty. He is now a council member of the Board on Arthritis and Metabolic Diseases of the Federal Security Agency. National Institute of Health in Wash- ington. During the past few years there lia occurred at the University of Maryland School of Medi- cine an important shift in the relative emphasis of the various parts of the teaching program of the student ' s last two years — the sd-ialled " clini- cal " years. At last, instead of sitting for hours listening to lecture after lecture, the student spends the greater part of his day on the hospital wards and in the out-patient dispensary. Now, through the extensive facilities of the University Hospital, the student has been given the oppor- tunity to apply what he has struggled so hard to learn. W ith the close co-operation of the I ' niver- sity Hospital administration, resident staff, and visiting physicians, his clinical vears are truly spent in seeing patients, both ambulatory and bedridden. He must deal with patients and their idiosyncrasies, diseases in their rarely typical appearance, hospital routine with all its many facets aimed at better care. hat is it that makes the fund ling student become the self-assured physician secure in the knowletlge that he has received the best that medical education has to offer? Is it the understanding house staff stand- ing behind the student with a fricndK M r(l of encouragement? Could it be the full-time Uni- ersit staff with their " pearls of wisdom " ? The visiting men with their broad practical knowl- edge of disease? The wide variet of ])atient material available at the I iiixersitv Hcjspital? Nurses anxious to help in the everyday problems of care? Personal contact w ith patients and their troubles? To give a complete answer to that most significant of all questions would require a long dissertation on all the various ramifications of the education which we have been so fortu- nate to receive at the University of Maryland. But it is possible to summarize that answer in a very few words — an excellent hospital and its staff. Welling. Dorsey. Mullan. Randall. Pickett, Gunning, Gfildsniith. Forrest. Nataro. Bucy. The Student Council The Student Council is the principal channel for interchange of constructive ideas for im- provement of the school. It furnishes a fine opportunity for each class to become aware of the activities and problems of its brother classes. The Council often has members of four vear tenure who are con ersanl with school affairs of se en consecutive classes. A readilv available first-hand source of information is thus afforded. Perhaps of even greater importance, this con- linuitv provides a perspecti e which acts as a steadying force upon individual class policies. The membership consists of twelve students, nanielv. the Class President and two representa- tives from each of the respecti e school vears. All are chosen by the separate classes in annual elections. The President of the Council is a member of the Junior Class who has been elected by his class for that position. The Secretary is a member of the Freshman Class. A concrete manifestation of the close coopera- tion between students and faculty is the annual Student Council-Faculty Dinner held in the Spring. The Dean. Department Heads. Division Heads, and the Council members attend this function. Each class is invited to express class opinions as gathered in a survey of its individual students. They may take the form of praise or of constructive criticism. The facult in turn may reply to the specific suggestions if it so chooses. It is a source of pride to all present to see personal feelings submerged in a sincere effort to promote school welfare. It is felt that progressive and cooperative ventures such as these work best to achieve more efficient and harmonious medical education. Osteen, ! ataro. Leighton.

The Junior Class ■ " Freclinital ) ears ' over, the class of ' 55 re- turned to school in Septcinlier expecting the usual junior year — hundreds of hours of lectures and dozens of final exams on the nian spe- cialties. But this was the year of the big switch — the semi-block system schedule which gave us but two hours of lectures a day, a rotating clerkship in the hospital, and a schedule so complicated that three days of orientation were re(]uired to interpret it. Doing lab work before having had Clinical Pathology, nights on OB with blood pressures before breakfast, autopsy calls on nights and Sundays, riding to City Hospitals, histories and physicals, eight o ' clock classes every day — we had our minor gripes and troubles and our first tastes of medical life. The time went rapidly. We enjoyed learning medicine this way. There was the burned up slide in Psychiatry, and ever willing Harry to work the projector. We gave each other vaccinations — and they took. And e er onc pondered wlutlicr he should or shouldn ' t elect Psychiatry. F. en the lecturers smoked in (Chemical Hall — right under the big " No Smoking " sign. Some professors were noted for the promptness thev demanded, others for empty seats, slumped backs and nodding heads. Stethoscope in pocket, white coat, and a pa- tient called ou " doctor " ; the spasticity of past years has somehow disappeared; you can actu- ally talk scnsiblv on a medical topic; mavbe vou will be a decent pinsician after all — in spite of what the told mi in freshman anatonn. and that failing memor that plagues vou at the sight of a l)lue book. Social life didn ' t sufTer too much either — an unofficial tally puts o er 50 ' i of the class in the engaged or married columns. Two men even found time to say goodnight to three kids apiece. And school dances and class parties were never better attended. Three down, one to go! Who says there ' s a better life than medicine? We ' ve tasted it: bring on the meal! 61 Members of Junior Class Albrecht Dembo Baer. G. K. Diederich.

Freshman Class The Class of 1957. nuniheiiiif; 104 nienihers and representing 17 states, the District of Co- luinhia. 2 territories, and a foreign countrvr entered the University of Maryland .School of Medicine with a warm welcome from Dean Wylie. During the first few weeks, we were sub- ject to a series of orientation lectures by Dr. Pincofis, who discussed with us ethics, the school history, and our future in the field of medicine. Little time was lost in starting to work. Within a few weeks, we found ourselves overwhelmed by a constant flow of helpful advice and tips from the upperclassnien. Most of us were able to overcome the difficulties of orientation and to begin successfuliv our medical education. L n- fortunately. our ranks were depleted by the with- drawal of two members due to personal illness and death in the family. We can only hope that they are able to return as members of ' .58. Fol- lowing the mid-term examinations, time passed much too quickly : before long, we completed our first semester. The second semester, with its interesting and varied classes, sparked us with an increased vigor. The first half of the fresh- man year was behind us: we tuok the sccoiu) half in our stride. The social activities of our class offered a wel- come and necessar diversion from our scholastic studies. In addition to fraternity open houses, nurses " dances, and school dances, our class, under the leadership of its capable and energetic officers, undertook an active program. A class party at u Sigma Nu fraternity house took place early in December. Refreshments, talented performances by class members, football movies, and a chance to relax and to meet fellow class- mates added up to a most enjoyable and suc- cessful evening. For the more athletically-minded portion of ' 57. a basketball league was organ- ized, and Saturday afternoon play proved to be both spirited and surprisingly good. In summarizing our first year, it must be said that ' 57 showed itself to be both versatile and active. It is not too presumptuous to predict a great future not only scholastically and socially, but also in school affairs and government as well. The Class of " 57 promises to be one of the most successful in the history of the school.

He has been continuously engaged in teaching, research, and publication of anatomical papers. He was awarded the Van Meter Prize in 1936. His latest work has been a beautifully illustrated book on the anatomy of the human pelvis. We will always remember the " Great White Father " for his kind smile and helping hand. His silent tennis shoes allowed him much freedom of movement about the anat- omy lab without the student knowing that he was present. It was through his hard work and able guidance that we first became familiar with the human body, the machine which we are destined to keep in repair.

Dr. Schmidt re- ceived his Ph.D. in 1924 from the University of Wisconsin. The following vear he came to Bal- timore as an instructor in biochemistry at Mary- land Mediial School. His LL.B. was awarded from the University of Maryland. In l ' J49 Dr. Schmidt became head of the Biochemistry De- partment. With lab and lectures he showed us the nianv reactions which differentiate a cadaver from a normally functioning organism. Never did he allow us to get so befuddled in compli- cated apparatus and theories, that we forgot the simplicities of life. He impressed us with the concepts of biochemistry as related to clinical medicine and was the first professor to introduce us to the concept of peptic ulcer.

Dr. Amberson is known to his students fo r his set of lectures given on i europhysiology at the end of the freshman year. It has always been a treat to see his pleasant smile and hear his humor in the physi- ology lab. The great " Dog Fight of 19.S0 " was sparked by this department under the leadership of Drs. Amberson and Smith. Many will re- member Dr. Amberson for his sincere interest in the welfare of the student and his democratic methods of examinations. Physiology Hell.; Dietrich Smith.

Hachtel has been associated with the Department of Bacteriology in the University of Maryland Medical School since 1920. He is dedicated to the teaching of bacteriology to those who will come in contact with the results of bacterial infection. He is retiring this year after more than thirty years service with the school. An interest in Shake- speare has led to a comprehensive knowledge and a large collection of the Bard " s work. Many of us remember the active part Dr. Hachtel took on the Admissions Committee. When we were asked about the operas, classics, etc., most of us were floored. During his career, he published many articles on infection which played a large part in improving the health standards of our com- munity, our state, and our country.

M.D. Since 1838 there was a desire to establish a separate department of Pathology at the I ni- versity of Maryland. This was realized in 1847, and in 1855 the microscope was used in the studv of pathological specimens. Full time teachers were not employed until 1915. It is into this set- ling that Dr. Hugh R. Spencer appeared in 1921 as Professor of Pathology. Born in Baltimore in 1888, he graduated from the Baltimore Medi- cal School in 1910. After studying for one year in physiology, he changed to patholog y. His academic endeayors took him across town to the Hopkins for two ears of study in pathology. During World ar I. Dr. Spencer seryed in the army as a pathologist, with thirteen months over- seas to his credit. Although born in Baltimore City, he grew up in the country, acquiring a loye for fishing and hunting. Through lectures, labo- ratory, autopsies, and the CPC. Dr. Spencer and his staff helped prepare us for our future work. Pathology (;enito-lrinar Pathology with Dr. Howard B.

About 1840 we find the first mention of actual delivery of lec- tures on " Diseases of Women " by Professor Richard H. Thomas. Actually the Department of Gynecology had its beginning under Dr. Wil- liam T. Howard in 1867. He was an important figure, prominent in the outstanding societies of the country. He also was the author of several articles and an excellent lecturer. He served in this position for 30 years. Dr. Howard was fol- lowed by Dr. Thomas Ashby who was an indus- trious worker and it is claimed he successfully performed the first laparotomy, in the State of Marx land, for a ruptured tubal |)regnancy. In lo ' JO Dr. J. Mason Hundley was made Chief of Clinic to the Professor of Diseases of Women and Children and in 1898 was appointed Clinical Professor of Diseases of Women, a position which he held until his death in 1928. He was a splendid surgeon, widely known for his skill in plastic work and many feel he was a pioneer in this field at the University of Maryland. Dr. Ashby was succeeded by Dr. William S. Gardner, an excellent pathologist who took spe- cial interest in this field. On his retirement in 19.S.5. Dr. J. Mason Hundley. Jr.. became Pro- fessor of the Department of Gynecology. During the next 18 years many changes were brought about in the department, namely, a gynecological subdepartment of Oncology was formed, a small, but adequate, amount of radium having been purchased by the Staff: a department of female urology was brought about; and special work in gynecological pathology was instituted. The department is fortunate in having a most capable artist, a part-time physicist, a part-time endocrinologist, and a social service worker who follows the patients with malignant disease with great success. Last year she obtained a follow-up of 99 ' ( plus of patients with carcinoma of the cervix. There is an excellent visiting staff made up of actiye young men who are proficient clinicians, teachers, and many have published noteworthy papers in this field. Dr. Hundley.

In a limited amount of time, he teaches students the use of instruments, tries to ac {uaint them with the normal eye. and demonstrates common ocular pathology.

Root founded an honor medical society which through the past fifty-two years has grown in size and stature to such an extent that today its members and influence per- vade all of medicine. Membership in this society, known as Alpha Omega Alpha from the initials of the motto as it is expressed in Greek, is founded upon professional aptitude, intellectual grasp, moral integrity, and that diaphanous char- acteristic known as promise of subsequent leader- ship and accomplishment. AOA serves as goal towards which not only undergraduates, but graduates as well, strive in the pursuance of their chosen profession. It is indeed appropriate that the quarterly publication of this society be known as the Pharos, reminiscent of the ancient beacon of the Mediterranean at Alexandria, a fitting symbol of the spirit and purpose of AOA. In December, 1949, the University of Mary- land School of Medicine was honored by a visit from Dr. Walter Bierring, national president of the society. At that time he installed on the campus the Beta Chapter of Maryland. Since that small charter group of 14 faculty members, 5 graduates, and 12 members of the senior class, 108 the chapter has steadiK grown in nunil)ers and activities. Kach ear the cliapter is allowed to elect to nietnhership one-sixth of the praduatinj; class and one-twelfth of the junior class, in addi- tion to an graduates or facult ineinbers who have distinguished iheinseKes in their profes- sional actixities. This )ear the full (|uota of six- teen graduating seniors were menibers. in addi- tion to fi e juniors. Under the ahle guidance of Dr. Milton S. Sacks, Facult) Counselor, and Dr. J. Kdmuiid Bradley. Kacult Secretar). this haptcr alteru|it to promote and support a li eh interest in in es- tigative medicine by undertaking two scientific meetings in the spring of each ear. The first of these is known as the Annual Student Paper Day and gives students of the University of Maryland an opportunit to |)rescnt the results of investigational projects in which they have taken part. The other is a program j)resented by a leading authority in the field of medical research on one of the problems which he has recently investigated. This year we were fortu- nate in having as our guest Dr. Joseph Stokes, Jr., of Department of Pediatrics at the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania. Both of these programs have been of value in stimulating the curiosity of the students in modern investigational methods and trends. In all of its activities, AOA hopes that, bv setting an example for all. its motto. " To be worthy to serve the suffering " , may trulv become a beacon for all members of the medical pro- fession. l)i(. S. Sa( Ks Dr. J. Edmund Bradley 109 Left to right: First row: Framm. Goldsmith.

Although the fraternity had a modest beginning, having been founded in 1904 by a group of eight enthusiastic voung men at Cornell University, Phi Delta Epsilon has expanded year after year, until now. at the half century mark, it is a national organization with a membership of over 10.000 physicians and stu- dents and with a chapter and active Graduate Clubs connected with every major medical school throughout the United States and Canada. The Baltimore group was proud this year to plav host to a gigantic fort) -ninth national convention, held at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. Fraters ar- rived here from all over the continent to reaffirm the fraternity ' s principles and to take pride in its strivings for and attainment of its high stand- ards of ethics, scientific achievement, and educa- tional progress. Delta Epsilon Chapter at the University of Maryland was chartered in 1906. Today, the local group consists of over eighty medical stu- dents and a large active Graduate Club. This year the c hapter makes its new home at 2201 Callow Avenue. Here, opportunity is afforded the phvsicians and students to meet together and exchange ideas and to form lasting bonds of friendship.

Building a new fraternity is quite an under- taiving. especially when combined with the effort required by scholastic work. However, aided immensely by a prosperous and sincerely enthu- siastic Baltimore Alumni (Mub. the new Phi Lambda Kappa Fraternity expects large returns on its efforts. The big feature of this renaissance was the 4()th Annual National Convention of Phi Lambda Kappa held here in Baltimore during the (Ihri-il- mas vacation. The new brothers were famously impressed with the spirit and helpfulness shown by the " old guard " . The memory of " conven- tion " lingers vet and provides an increasing impetus to further achie ement. The first move of the year, 1954, was to obtain a home for the new organization. A house- warming at which the alumni honored the new chapter indicated a social season which was climaxed by a gala Spring Formal.

" Mike " Mikoloski. has been one of the finest in the history of Zeta Ch apter of Phi Beta Pi. It all began earlv in the Fall when the rooms were completely redone including the painting on the wall of the Skull and Pelvis by our medi- cal illustrator friend Bill Loechel. the installation of a new pine panel bar. and a television set. To celebrate the rejuvenation, an Open House was held the first day of school and was well attended bv nurses and freshman medical stu- dents. This was quickly followed by a stag party with steamed shrimp and beer being the feature attractions. On December 5. we gave our first large dance on the Psychiatric Roof. La Boheme and apache style dress provided the atmosphere, while a five act skit with songs such as " Red Cells in My Urine ' " , " There ' s Nothing Left of Me After My Hysterectomy " , and " She ' s the Witch ' s Curse Cause Shes the Doctor ' s Nurse " providing the laughs. This dance, which was open to the whole school, was a huge success and it is planned to make this an annual affair. Another wonderful time was had March 20 in 116 ihe highly esteemed (Junther Tap Room. Two more events hel|)ed fill out the soeial caletidar. an informal St. Patrick ' s Day party and the Annual Senior Farewell. For this last llinj; we give one of our favorite alunmus. Dr. Kardash. a vote of thanks hecause it is his ' " Home on the Shore " that we use as a hase for swimming and liicnicking. On the academir side, three medical seminars were planned for the ear. The anatomy, his- tology, physiology. |)atholog and mediral as- pects of a chosen subject are discussed. A guest speaker is then asked to talk about a part of the subject that especially interests him. The first seminar was on the heart, and Dr. Oscar Camp inspired us with lii» discussion on " Mitral Stenosis and Its Surgical Repair " . The second seminar held in February featured Dr. Arthur Siwinski. The featured event of the year was the Annual Alunmi Banquet and Dance. A full course tur- key dinner at the .Stafford Hotel for the alunmi, the activies, the pledges, and their wives and dates was followed h a formal initiation of the |)ledges into the Fraternity. Dr. John Krantz. honorary alumnus, was guest speaker. Dancing filled in the rest of the evening. The Phi Betes lament the graduation of an excellent senior class, but with the initiation of a talented pledge grouj). look forv ard to another acti e and promising year. SENIORS —A ' c« . lleadle).

Christian Medical Association The Christian Medical Society is a national organization of physicians, medical students, and others in the medical profession whose purpose is to: present a positive witness of God our Father. Jesus Christ our Saviour, and the Holy Spirit to our associates in the profession; and to gain the mutual strength and encouragement to be attained in meeting together for prayer, Bible study, and fellowship. This past year the local chapter met with chapters of other medical schools at the national convention in New York in June, and again at a regional conference in Keswick Grove, New Jersey, in October. Weekly medical clinics for the men at the Helping-Up Mission were con- ducted throughout the year. 118 Student American Medical Association Robert C. Holcoinbe Charles J. Ham (ii luaii . Lavv The SAMA was com-eived in June. l ' J4 ' ) at a business meeting of the AMA and delegates from forty-eight medical schools met in Chicago in December, 1950. to draft a constitution. From this convention emerged a completely independ- ent organization of medical students. The local chapter was organized in the Spring of 1951. There are at present sixty-five chapters in the country. Officers for the current year were: Charles J. Hammer. President; Robert C. Hol- combe, Vice-President: Norman W. Lavv. Secre- tary-Treasurer. In addition, there is a faculty advisory committee consisting of: Dean H. Boyd Wylie. Dr. Jacob E. Finesinger, Dr. Henry J. L. Marriott and Dr. Karl F. Mech. About sixty percent of the students at Maryland are active members. Mike Click and Marshall Simpson represented our lia|itt ' r at the Annual National Convention held in Chicago in June, 1953. A few of the objectives of the organization are: to create a common body between students of the various medical schools, to provide the serv- ices of a paikage library and medical motion pictures to the member schools, to make loans or grants to deserving students, to aid in placing internes and recent graduates, to establish a hos- pital and surgical insurance plan for students, to help place students in summer jobs, sponsor scholarships and advanced study, arrange re- search opportunities and hold summer seminars as well as National SAMA Clinical Conferences and Conventions. Perhaps the most notable achievement to date has been the formation of the SAMA Journal, received by all members. 119 The new Psychiatric Institute adjoining the University Hospital is equipped to serve as a receiving and treatment unit for psychiatric and psychosomatic disorders with a department devoted to child psychiatr . Other departments — medicine, surgery, pediatrics — are also located in this building. 120 FEATURES Phases of a student s iite other than hours gulping down knieh in order to make a remembrances. sijenl 111 1 las- and over books are card games, dame-, dmi one o loek class.

Their eyes were kept on the Pui " pose . . . which Pur- pose is to Serve. Behind them were many years of effort and concern. They stand today as products of the genius of men who are their predecessors. Their role has been that of the student. And they intend never to cease the search which has brought them this far in knowledge of the truth. The mountain of " Authority " has been scaled, and now, from the crest, they look back and remember. ... No memories but these seem to blend, so surely, the joys of life with the oppressions of formidable tasks. From their vantage point at the mountain ' s top they feel relief, but not without wisps of nostalgia. For their experience has been a rich one ... a cherished one . . . fraught only meagerly with Dissension ' s wounding blade; and perhaps even richer in some respects because of those wounds. But a little while is spent in backward glance from " Authority ' s " heights, for soon their eyes turn eagerly toward the new paths ahead. Through the mists of mountains yet unconquered, they learn another truth. " Effort " and " Concern " , those acquaintances from yore cannot be cast aside! . . . Rather, these two shall be the rulers of the times ahead, and shall call forth the best in them who live to serve. Any wonder then, that those atop the mountain give thanks for Alma Mater ' s days of preparation? . . . They descend the other side with surer stride . . .

Gipe, Dean of the School of Nursing, of the University of Maryland. Is it only coincidence that our Dean has the same given name as the Lady of the Lamp. Florence Nightingale; ' This famous English nurse recognized the value of education as a complement to intelligent, considerate nursing care. A century later Dr. Gipe is carr ing on that aim. Through her work and foresight, a once small and unrecognized school has taken its place with the foremost University schools of nursing in the I nited .States. However, books and lectures alone do not make a good nurse. Dean Gipe has provided librar facilities, laboratory experiences and the opportunity for her stu- dents to work with the patients not onlv in the hospital but in the out patient depart- ment and in their homes as well. Only by recognizing the patient as an individual personality, rather than a textbook picture of a disease, can there be true nursing care given. Of course, this progress cannot be attributed to one person alone. However. Dean Gipe has undoubtedh done far more than her share to coordinate all efforts toward one great aim — a good nurse! TO THE GRADUATES OF THE 19B4 CLASS OF THE SCHOOL OF NURSING It is a pleasure to extend this greeting to the graduates in the School of Nursing. You have taken your preparation £or Nursing in one of the greatest educational systems that the world has ever developed, namely that of the Land Grant Colleges and Universities. Your objective for entering the School of Nursing of the University of Maryland was: to learn how to help people get well and to teach them how to stay well - it is the strong opinion of the faculty that you have attained your objectives for your outcomes are proof positive. During your learning period in the University of Maryland the philosophy of Professional Nursing has changed tremendously. Besides experiencing an entire change in methodology you were required to learn many new procedures supported by scientific principles which were formerly a part of nriedicine. You have met your challenge well and have demonstrated the ability to practice basic professional nursing with a high degree of competency; You are entering a field of health education that offers tremendous opportunitiee Just how well you will be able to take advantage of these opportunities depends upon how well you do your work. As S. W. Fobs in " The Coming American " has stated: " Bring me men to match my mountains Bring me men to match my plains Men with enr pires in their purpose And new eras in their brains. " .ZU Florence Meda Gipe Dean 135 Hospital Administration George H. Buck. Ph.B. Director of University Hospital Few people stop to realize that it takes more than doctors, nurses and patients to constitute a well run hospital. The key to much of the suc- cess of a hospital, however, lies in the adminis- tration. These people are not noticed in the everyday scramble of hospital life but their work appears evident in everything that happens within the walls of the hospital. These men behind the scenes make it possible for numerous patients to receive state aid when their medical expenses are too great for them to meet. Thev are also responsible for main- taining the hospital on a budget granted them by the State and at the same time must furnish all of the modern equipment found within the doors of " our " hospital. In the hands of these men lies the efficient functioning of the Out Patient Department and the Psychiatric Institute, where many of us ob- tained our knowledge of psychiatry. Some of us remember the wonderful annual Christmas party given for the hospital personnel and the house staff. We realize that those who serve as the govern- ing body in this institution have a deep and very sincere desire to create a pleasant atmos- phere for all of those concerned with the hos- pital, whether as patients, employees, visitors, or students. Because they have successfully accomplished their aim, we as graduates, will always reminisce with fond memories and ob- serve with pride the continuing progress of University Hospital. Kurt Nork.

We first met as a liod in the lixin;;- loom and there, self-consciously tried to make friends. One hy one we were caHed to re{;ister and to be assigned to a room whiih we shared with a stranger who was later to iiecome one of our liest friends. The rest of that first dav was spent becoming acquainted with our new sur- roundings. Later that evening, at a part . we met our " Big Sisters " and main of the upper classmen. The da s that followed broLighl an a alan(iie of books, uniforms, rules and rcguhitions. and nexei ' eiuling classes. We an iousl antic ipalcd the arri al of our uniforms, for then we (cudd begin to work on the wards with real patients. How disillusioned we were the da we were haiuled white " lab coals " and told it was time to start our clinical practice. We spent se eral months looking and feeling like laborator te( h- nicians but doing the work of first ear stud ' nt nurses. Shorth before Thanksgi ing DaN. we received our uniforms and during the ensuing months we gained the experience that i-oiitributcd to greater self-confidence. We enthusiastiialK planned Capping Ceremonies and on the First of March, in the presence of rclati cs and friends, we recei ed the student cap of the L ni- versity of Maryland School of Nursing. Time passed quickh as students were being -up r iscd for the admiMi tration of medicines, and started assuming charge duties on all shifts. None of us will ever forget the " first death " and the feeling ol Ik lplc siicss and sorrow that fell o er the entire ward. Although death leaves a deeper impression, we can all remend)er a far greater number of serioush ill patients who re- gained their health and were again able to resume their places in the " family circle " . In Jul of 19.12. ten members of the class oi " .i4 who had been studying at College Park joined us on the Maltimore campus to continue their nursing education with us. Ibis was the first grouj) of " four-year students " . At the same lime se en members of the class start ' d their lii«t • pi ' cialtN thi ' operating room.

At the near end of three years of training what with the ex]ieiise of earbooks. rings, graduate imiforms and caps, the bulging bill-folds that our parents owned earlier now find themselves almost de|)leted. Soon howexer. each of us will be able to take our place professionally in the field of nursing and humbly prove that the sacri- fices made were n(jt in ain. 141 Class Officers Kathy Swint President Pat Wolfe Secretary Nancy Ricks Vice-President Joyce LeFever Treasurer 142 Class of July, 1954 Nancy I ' alricia Aniler on U.S. ill Nursing Sii. i;n Si-Ki.NC, Maryland This senoiila l;ill slim alliailiveness whirli i ' ] i- her llic appearance of firiat (lifiiiit docs not o crwlicim her friends as we all know her as one wiio deiif;hls in leasing and iiierr - niaiciiig.

Her tales of these places are long and tall lint wc lo e to listen as she l( es to tell. One is truly her friend if she will listen to aiic s wide collection of weird Aztei- music. In the pediatric department she was found to lie a cheerful and compclciit nurse. Whether it lie puiiiii liiallh oi pcdialiii nursiiif; or clinii work, we are sure anc s fiiliiic will lie a happy one. . Paiiiehi Fleiiiiiig B.S. in ursing PriiNceton. f, v Ji rsey We seldom find a person such as " Pani " . who has a jollv disposition with a friendh and warm greeting for evervone. Her patients and classmates always find her to be a willing listener with the insight needed to counsel kindly. At New Jersey College for Women Pam participated in the l ew ' Jersey College and Rutgers University choirs, and a seminar group. Her qualities of leadership and scholarship earned her a jjosi- tion on the honor board while in nursing. Judging from Pam ' s enthusiastic interest and fine achieve- ments in pediatrics, we predict a happy future for this nurse and her Doctor Dan. 143 Virginia Lee Franklin B.S. in Nursing TowsoN. Maryland Always a friend and ever so kind is the way Lee ' s classmates will remember her. She has conscientiousness and perse erance which are stepping stones to success: she has understanding and sincerity which should quiet any troubled soul. Popular iiuisic and the fine arts, especially the language of French, are two of Leo ' s special interests. Being creative, she is alwavs being called upon to do a clever poster. Having been interested in student activities through high school and nursing Lee has served ably as Women ' s League Representative of her fresh- man class at College Park, secretary of the Nurses Choir, and a member of numerous committees. Future plans will probably be centered on pediatrics or public health; in either endeavor we wish her much happiness. Shirley Marie Johns B.S. in Nursing Hyattsville. Maryland The dark-brown haired gal with " Mamie ' s " bangs is Shirley. Her favorite field of nursing as a student was pediatrics. Could it be she ' s storing this knowledge for future reference? Her spare time is spent reading, listening to her favorite radio and television programs, and the old stand-by. sleeping. Her school activities consisted of Glee Club and Lutheran Students ' Asso- ciation. Other free time was spent in trving to recover Ruby ' s book. Plans for the future include a trip to Paris after which those June bells will ring. Shirley is truly a real friend, sincere in all her actions. 144 Shirley Mao Jones B.S. in Nursing Emmitsburg. Maryland A wuiin. iiiciidlv f iiii and sparkling eyes gi e one a glimpse of the happ) disposition which we lioasl is Shirlc s. She takes life in a easy manner and never lets an thing disturb her. Kxielling in all sports, she will be remembered for her valuable rontribution as a star forward on the tnirses " basketball team. In other school activities she was vice president of Albright Otterbein and a member of the Glee Club Ixith at college and at the School of Nursing. Of all her experiences in nursing tiie operating room and nurserv have interested her most. We know that a wonderful future awaits her no matter what pi ofissioii -he chooses. Hazel Dorolliy MeLay B.S. in Nursing Port Dki osit. Maryland liiiiL er one hears a peal of laughter resounding far and wide, there is no doubt it ' s Hazel ' s. Besides being famous for her distinctive laughter, she is known for her bright and friendly smile which cheers patients and co-workers alike. Hazel ' s favorite pastimes, besides writing and shopping, are going to weddings and hoarding articles for her hope chest. She is admired for her definite opinions and strong beliefs, a few of which are concerned with long engagements and large weddings. The areas she remembers as most pleasant were public health and pediatrics. 145 Katherine Imogene Roitinson B.S. in Nursing Washington. D. C. Kitty, as slie is called by her classmates, came to us from Washington. She is admired for her ability to handle any situation. A good student, she always does her work before it is due instead of leaving it until the last minute. She enjoyed her three months of obstetrical nursing the most as a student. Kitty sang in the Glee Club, took part in the Minstrel show and was house committee chairman. As she participated in many school activities her spare time was limited, but she found time to write to a certain male friend and catalogue his slides. Her plans for the future include a fast ])lane trip to Malaya and him! Betty Lou Sliui kagel B.S. in Nursing LiNTHicuM Heights, Maryland " Beaugous " is one of those rare people who is always cheer- ful and ambitious. In her resting moments Bettv likes to read, paint, and listen to semi-classical music. Although she claims to spend most of her time in a prone position in room 732. she somehow finds time to devote to the Glee Club and the Lutheran Students ' Association. As a senior, Betty proved herself a very active first vice-president of the S.G.A. Never again will she say, " I thought vice-presidents didn ' t work " . Betty plans to nurse at the L niversity Hospital after a trip across the United States with her roommate. V?- 146 Rul y Mae Sterling; Stark B.S. in Nursiiifi Washington. D. C. Ruby is a very good friend to everyone and i alua s willing to help anyone out — she may often be seen workiti ' j overtime to help her patients. She is a shy little girl, but " still water often runs deep " . In her spare time Rub ma be toiind sleeping, reading, watching television, writing letters, and most of all. dreaming of Paul. She was social chairman of her lass last year. She enjoyed most the Outpatient dcpartniciit where she was able to meet and talk uitli all t pes of picipli-.

Ali e with fun and an active imagina- tion, her serious side shows in her interest in music and in science. Her f acilitv for digging deep in subjects and her love for people have brought her a great satisfaction in nursing. She is usualU quiet, preferring not to expound but to listen: liowe cr when moved to speak she does so with clearness and organizati jn. Glo enjovs teaching patients and this interest coupled with her success at this will stand her in good stead in public health which so far has sparked her interest most. 147 Care siucLj - lvos cLlS lfQsicr ioxi 14S Class of September, 1954 Patricia Leflfel Anderson White Hall.

Pediatries is a favorite for Pat though she received honors in every class and specialty. Much of her spare time is spent in sewing and playing haskethall. Pat has a bright future ahead as a credit to the nursing profession and a successful wife. Carol Bueiini Austin Baltimore, Maryland Wherever Carol is found, we may he certain she is busy. For the past three years, she could usually be found playing the piano or dashing off duty to catch the " Bump and Agony " " to Annapolis. Her spare time during her senior vear has been spent pleading. ' " Please, girls, have your pictures taken! " ' for Carol was photography editor of Terra Marlae Medicus. After graduation. Carol may choose operating room duty. At any rate, there ' s no doubt that she will marry her midship- man from Maine. How long is it until June 1955, Carol? 149 Marie Doris Bowling Baltimore, Maryland " Peasoup and iDtleii applesauce I ' m still on 3B. " It seems ti Doris at least, that most of her training has been spent on this one ward. A very colorful member of our class, she will he remembered for Perry, her imaginary companion, the " " Haryey " ' of Louisa Parsons Home. Always efficient. Doris leases a ward the way she would like to find it. To date, she has found operating room work most to her liking, and may substitute a scrub cap for her Flossie in the near future. Barbara Eileen Burrhett Frederick, Maryland " Babs showed her enthusiasm for nursing when she joined our class a few months late. On her days off she either reads, swims, knits, or goes to the moyies. You can tell by this that she doesn t like to sit still for long. Her pretty smile and sweet personality have won her many friends here. She is interested in public health and may choose that or college, or both, when she becomes a registered nurse. We wish her the best of luck in whatever she may do. 1.50 Georgia Etta Oawfor ! TOWSON, MaKI I.VMi Nurses Home — 2 A.M. — Knock im llic licK.i li is (Jeoi-iia making her last visit before retiring. Of ((unx ' tif 11 miss ail early morning classes but she will go to lied hapin still pinochle ehamp. This is the fini l(i ing Georgia; however on the wards she has proven herself a c-apable and ver uiuicr- standing nurse, and manages to maintain high scholastic stand- ing with little effort. This year she is seeretar of .S.(7.A. and official score keeper for the basketball team. Although her future is undecided, the mention of pediatrics brings out that twinkle in her eyes. We wish her luck in her final decision. Patricia Mav !ri8t Baltimore, Makvland Ihis bhic-e ed effervescent classmate of ours is dear to the hearts of all. I ' at has that infectious laughter that includes all within hearing distance. When not on duty this petite blond niav be found either sleeping or just dreaming of things in the future. She was elected secretary of her class during her first year and later class treasurer. Pat " s efficient and sympa- thetic work during her three years as a student has proved her aptitude as an excellent nurse. The delivery room proved to be Pat ' s specialty but her main desire is to be a good bedside nurse. 151 Betty Ann Dorfler Baltimore, Maryland Tall, talented, gracious, gray eyed, and serious when it is time to be serious; this appellation fits no one else but our ■ " Betts " . Possessing that indefinable quality of which leaders are made. Betts has capably demonstrated her ability while serving as class president in our second year. She further proved her flexibility and adjustability when her school elected her president of the Student Govermnent Association. Her perceptive approach and appreciation of the other fellow ' s problem assures her success in her chosen profession. Betty has found that obstetrics proved to be the most inter- esting field of nursing; however, those daily letters to a certain V.M.I, cadet will play an important part in her future. Ella Startte Elhourne Rock Hall. Maryland Our vivacious Ella always seems to be busy, whether it be Irving to solve what to do about her date while she s working 3-11 P.M. or dashing about makin g final plans for the class dance. As class social chairman for two years, she has added that intangible something to our affairs so that every one had a good time. This Eastern Shore girl especially enjoyed obstetrical nurs- ing. She hopes to practice in this field in Florida. No matter what the future holds, her contagious smile and perennial good spirit will certainly cheer many a patient. 152 Barbara Yat 8 Elgin B.S. Baltimore. Maryland VheiR ' LT llif claiiiiii 111 llirof uluriii (links is licaril lliiuuj;li- out the fifth floor of the nurses ' home, it means Bobbie is sleep- ing blissfully. The far! that she can work as hard as she can sleep has been proved by her ability to keep finances straight as business manager of our yearbook. In her senior year Barbara look time off to marry Dr. KIgin. Her future will include pediatric nursing in Baltimore, an experience which will prove valuable when Bobbie has those six little boys. Emily Webster Filzgeral)! Washington. D. C. Whenever a strain of highpitched laughter is heard, it is probably Emily singing the praises of Pogo or exploding with excitement over a letter from Georgia Tech which she expected all the time. When not counting the days until she can move til Atlanta. " " Eni " may be found searching for someone to take I barge of chapel or begging the supervisors to let the basket- ball team be off duty for their game. The shining star of Emily ' s future seems to point toward obstetrics, however at least one point of that star leads to a happy home and family. 153 Berfha Jean Hauver Thurmont, Maryland " Well, I reckon I will if 1 have to. " drawls Jean as she ambles toward the elevator finding herself again on night duty, " no all night pinochle session " . Jean ' s trusting confidence, sought bv most of the members in the class, has won her many lasting friendships. Although her dry wit runs contagiously through the nurses " home, her sincere and conscientious man- ner offers reassurance to her patients. The innnediate future holds a vacation in Florida, however her choice of working in an accident room will prove to be an interesting career. Barbara Carter Herring Baltimore. Maryland This dark haired beauty would liring cheer to even the gloomiest ward. Add to this a very capable nurse and what more could an patient want? " Barb " has achieved an unusual attitude toward life — Why worr). it will all end all right. And somehow it seems to work. She started her senior year with a bang b becoming Mrs. Herring. Barbara has enjoyed all of her student experiences although as yet no one has become " the one " for her. In the future she will be with her hubby and will perhaps continue her nursing in a hospital or will at any rate put her education to use as an efficient wife. 154 Muriel Gwen Hewell Baltimore. Mak i.and You can be sure when there is a social funclioii spotisorcd 1) the nurses " Grace " will })e the one who planned the alTair. the one who did the most work, and the one who had tlie imo i fun. Alive, i acious and full (jf fun is our S.G.A. social chair- man. Her nurses " home antics, including the " punch) ox- champ, contrasted sharply with the picture we have of Gwen carinf; for her patients or representinj; our class in the 19.5.S Homecoming Queen contest. She worked with the xearhook staff as subscription editor, and when tr inj; to collci t the tnoney had a hard time finding anyone " off dut . Obstetrics and pediatrics were favored specialties and she and her " IJee - iightful bo) will be on their way to Florida as soon as she finishes. Charlene Raye Hihl er(l B.S. RiVERDALE, MaKM.WI) " Hill " is a real College Park gal: not oni i» iier home there lull she spent tiiree years at liic I ni ersit majoring in medical technolog iiefore transferring to the School of Nursing. Upon graduation she will receive her B.S. degree. She is a member of Delta Gannna sororit and a rabid rooter for liie " Big Team " ; but sailing or just sleeping i)attlc for top honors as her off-duty preferences. As one of the ice-]jresidents of the S.G.A. in her second year she did much to aid underclassmen and this vear has worked hard as advertising editor of the vearbook staff. Well liked b her patients and classmates alike. Hib is unde- cided about her future plans. Obstetrics was her favorite spe- cialty, and she hopes to work in the deliver) room. However her love for the water niav take her to some remote spot where she can do public health nursing. 155 Nesta E. Hine Baltimore. Maryland Those sparkling brown eyes with a twinkle describes our Nesta who is a favorite around the nurses ' home. Throughout our three years in the nursing school Nesta could always be counted on to supply us with her unique posters; of course she was elected art editor of our yearbook. No matter what this vivacious girl does it is always sincere, but she always wonders " what will happen to me next? " She is not only an artist, but also a singer, as she proved when the Quartette sang at our minstrel show. Nesta ' s plans include anesthesiology, and perhaps post- graduate work in obstetrics all preparatory to helping a cer- tain aspiring voung dentist. Rose Marie Hines LUMBERPORT. WeST ViRGINLX From the hills of West Virginia, hails this fair haired, green eyed lass. Her natural talent and love for music varies from barbershop harmonizing to relaxing to classical nuisic. Marie s last minute rushing for a date is the result of an interrupting telephone conversation. Though always ready for a party or gab session, the daily emergencies of duty are met with a sin- cere and dependable attitude. Her future plans are indefinite, however psychiatric nursing is her preference. Her efficiency and love of nursing will make a success wherever she goes. 156 E8lt ll«- Kornaii B.S.

While here at school, she has given time as monitor and as member of the .Student Nurses Association of Marvland. She especially enjoved working in the accident room. Her future plans include pediatrics and travel in the northern United States. Naomi Siiy«l« ' r Lees Baltimokk. Makm and Naomi has the record of hecomiiig our first married class- mate. June of her freshman year saw her change her name to llial of iier . ' sergeant husband. A brilliant student and a fine nurse, the tall dark haired girl will always be identified with her loud sincere laugh, aomi enjoved all aspects of her nursing experiences, but obstetrics will probably be her choice afttr graduation unless she " specials " while traveling across the countrv as an army wife. We will never forget her senior year when her Christmas gift was the return of her husband from Korea. Wherever her nursing care is given, her patients will be fortunate. 1.57 Joyce Christine LeFever B.S. Hagerstown. Maryland E pr tii7ie vou see " Le Fer " . she is trying to decide which pair of glasses will go best with her dress. Blessed with an amiable disposition. Joyce is universally well liked and one of the most popular girls in our class. Even fifteen straight weeks of relief and night dut) on old 38 couldn ' t dim her sunny smile. Ever since she was elected treasurer of the senior class, poor Le Fer has been tracking down and attempting to collect back dues from delinquent class members. Professionallv. Joyce leans toward accident room or oper- ating room. Elaine Loree Lewis B.S. Oakland, Maryland Quiet is the word which best describes Elaine but don ' t let that fool you. Her witty comments always amuse the crowd. Elaine spends much of her leisure time listening to F.M. music, and trying to find the latest novel or magazine. She has en- joyed working in pediatrics and will obtain her Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation. Future plans will probabh be centered around industrial nursing or school nursing which will take her to Europe to work. We wish her all the luck in the world with whatever she undertakes. 158 Merlene MacKenzie Baltimore. Maryland Even tlidui;!)

Baltimore, Marylano A quiet little blond who always managed to get excellent marks and somehow always handed in assignments on time. This is Mary Helen. When ofl duty she offered her services and talents by participating in the Glee Club and the Minstrel Show. She shared with so many others that ever present fru- strating situation of having a date and no late leaves left. She often has d one those unsung hut necessary tasks of being monitor and fire-warden on her floor of the nurses " home. edding Bells will ring in June but as lo nursing, the future is undecided, for Mary Helen. 159 Faye Anita Elsie Parks Hagerstown, Maryland Our chatterbox from Hagerstown always seems to be in a state of anxiety. " Parksy " has the shortest haircut in school but she still manages to twiddle it incessantly. Much of her spare time and nearly all of her generous allowance is spent in shopping to replenish that extensive wardrobe. She ' s our lovable scatterbrain whose misadventures are too numerous to relate. In contrast to her happy-go-lucky personal life. Fave is a serious, calm, capable nurse. She has enjoved deliverv room and psychiatry most, and as yet has not decided between them. Marlene Barnes Reid Easton, Maryland " Marty " is one of our Eastern Shore friends and she ' s proud of it! Somewhere down the line she has absorbed her mathe- matics lessons and now puts it to use keeping accurate finan- cial records for the Student Government Association. She also has served her school as captain of the basketball team. In her free time she may usually be found trying to trim a few more centimeters from her short, short black hair. Marty is one of the few nurses who loves night duty. Psychiatry seemed to intrigue her more than any of her experiences, so perhaps the future will find Marty working in this ever growing field. 160 Catharine Louise Reinhart B.S. SlI.XKK Sf ' rinc. Should you ever walk in on a pinochle game and hear an opening hid of fifty, you ' ll know that " Reiny " ' is at it again. A whiz at card games of any kind. (Catharine will also he remembered for the driest wit in the nurses ' home. A capable nurse. " Reiny " has yet to find the |)articular field which will claim her interest. W hen asked ahipiit |ilans for the future she remarked, " I have adjusted to last inimili- changes so well that I ha ( ' stopped [)lanning ahead " . Margaret .4nn Rirhanlson Baltimore. Maryland This li cl i)loiide nia alwa s be counted on to make some humorous remark to liven a tense situation, ever to be for- gotten is the evening she sat on a chair in the nurses " living room and it collapsed under her — it was an old chair! Although Marge is a gay. vivacious girl, dont get the impression she is not serious also at the proper times. It must have been studv plus a sincere liking for obstetrics that gave Marge the high mark she obtained. As co-editor of the yearbook, she spent manv hours delving into the problems of this position, but uppermost in her thoughts has been the anticipation of joining Gwen in changing their home addresses to Miami. 161 HrV Sk J b - tt l r ' ' 1 1 Nancy Ricks Baltimore, Maryland Another of the girls from Baltimore, Nancy will be remem- liered for her beautiful blonde hair and quiet manners. This (|uietness changes to efficiency however when she goes on duty. Nancy ' s efficiency was also evident in her off duty hours when she so ably served her class as treasurer. Her plans for the future, as far her nursing career is con- cerned, are undecided although pediatrics was a favorite. One thing for certain those wedding bells will be ringing soon for Nancy. Joan Carolyn Ritter B.S. Silver Spring, Maryland After spending two years at the University of Maryland where she was a member of Gamma f hi Beta and majored in pre-nursing, little " Joanie " came to the University School of Nursing to fulfill her life ' s ambition. Although Joanie finds time to just have a good time, her patients and nursing come first with her. Her interest in music has led Joanie to become a member of the Glee Club and the Minstrel Show. To find her expertly strumming her uke is a common occurrence on the fourth floor of the nurses ' home. Upon graduation she will receive her B.S. and. since her main interest is the operating room, she plans to work in specialized surgery. 162 Juan erna Rilziiian B r.TiMORE, Maryland Our uii|)rc(li( lal)lf Jdan aiiia es all (if us with lici al)ilil [i make good »rades witluiMl r en opeuiiij; a book to study.

Gwendolyn Elaine Robertson Ellicott City, Maryland The room on the seventh floor wilii the (Confederate flag on the door l)elongs to an attractixe classmate of ours, namely C.wen. If you happen to take a " peek " into this room you ' ll find this animated personality either cleaning her room, knitting argyles, sewing, or just lazily dreaming. She has developed certain attributes which contribute to the makings of a good nurse. Gwen ' s success while in pediatrics have given her cause to choose it as her favorite field of nursing. In the future how- ever she plans to do some missionary work. 163 Katharine Virginia Swint Baltimore. Maryland Our (lass president spends most of her time working third floor night duty and trying to stay awake during the day to straighten out class affairs. Statements of " Please come to the class meeting " or " Order your class ring now " may always be traced to Kathy. On rare occasions she may be found in a pinochle game, reminiscing about the good times at Spring- field or dreaming about the future trips to Miami. The ever present excitement of the accident room and the delivery room attracted Kathy ' s interests. The future includes nursing in the sunny South. No specific marital plans have as yet been made, but no one can help noticing that Kathy seldom spends her evenings off in the nurses ' residence. Mary Lee Thompson Baltimore, Maryland Although Tomm) is the i)ungest member of our class her progress certainly has not been hindered at all. Her favorite places of duty are the accident room and the delivery room because, " You never know what ' s going to come through that door. " Off duty, her radio may be heard twenty four hours a day while she joins the pinochle club, and reads and writes poetry. During the warm months Tommy is always found on the roof soaking up the sun as proved by her perennial tan. No con- versation of more than fi e minutes is possible without some remark about Miami. Whatever attraction Miami holds must certainly be strong. One thing is certain. Florida will gain a capable nurse. 164 Jean Weller PocoNOKE, Maryland As a student Jean enjoyed earinj; for llie medical and sur- gical patient, in the accident room, in the operating room, and on the wards. In her few spare hours she can he found in one of three places: in her room reading a good hook, in a movie, or walking outside. Her long treks through the woods at Springfield Hospital will never he forgotten. In her senior year she worked as class representative to the -S.G.A. There are no definite plans for Jean ' s future l ul we are sure that her kiddish giggle will be heard throughout some hospital. Elaine Grace Widnian Princeton, New Jersey Elaine can alwavs be picked out in a crowd h her smile and her red. red blush. She enjoyed accident room but all of her time spent here has been " fascinating " . Although she is confused easily she proved herself a fine nurse and will succeed in whatever she undertakes. She spends her time knitting, reading, and dreaming. She led us through our first year as our president, and served as co-editor of the yearbook. She hopes to nurse for a year in Europe and then turn to public health nursing in the States. Whatever she chooses the future can hold nothing but success and happiness for Elaine. 165 Demetria Wijangco San Fernando, Fampanca. Philippines Our little Philippine nurse has amused us all by her twisted sentenies and strange pronunciations, but has also amazed us l) her rapid mastery of techniques despite her handicap. Although she studied pharmacy before coming to the states, " Mitzi ' chose nursing for her profession. I o specialty has vet attracted Mitzi ' s attention. When she gets her R.N. she will probably continue medical or surgical nursing. In her own words " I want to trayel. get a degree, and then go home and be an outstanding lady, " and she will carr our Nightingale Cap to the Philippines. Aha Fay W illsoii B.A. Helena, Montana If you are ever going down the corridor of the hospital or nurses home and see a quiet redhead with a sunny smile and a cheerful greeting for everyone it will be Alta Fay. She pos- sesses a wonderful disposition and is always willing to help everyone. Her spare time is spent in hand-work, sleeping, going to the movies and reading. Occasionally she goes home but always to a different place as her family is always on the move because her father is in the army. In June she will add an R.N. to the B.A. she already has. Her main interest is surgery with a post graduate course in this field before a tour in the Armed Forces. 166 Mildred M. Wilson Hm.iimoki;, Maic» i. nt) This native Baitiiiiiirean is well known for her good disposi- tion, ready laugh and amusing stories. Her love for tra el led her to the Orange Bowl Game which she claimed was good, but " Oh, the score " . A talented musician, having attended Peabody, may be found playing the |)ian(i. singing in the (ilee Club or singing at social functions. Her future, yet indefinite, mav see her in l a Blue though delivery room also holds a fascination for her. Regardless of the field she may choose, she will be an asset for she ' s a good nurse and is c er willing to help " ' the olhcr fellow " . Patricia Ann Wolfe Arlington, Virginia Our |)rctt Miiiid claims Baltimore as her home although the records show addresses from [Pennsylvania and Virginia as well. Even though Pat has often stayed on duty o ertime to do special favors to make her patients more comfortable, it is not hard to understand her complaint that fate always has her working 3-11 when Stan is home. Her classmates recognized her abilities when they elected her class secretary in the first year and again in the senior year. As to the future. Pat especially likes psychiatry and obstetrics. 167 Mary Lee Nations Wolfel Ellicott City. Maryland Small in stature but mighty in spirit. Lee is liked by all who know her. Her real home is in New Mexico but with Dad in the Army she has traveled to the Far East as well as many places in the United States. Mary Lee decided a doctor ' s wife was the life fo r her and in the summer of her senior year she and Don tied the knot. Now that hubby has completed intern- ship and has joined the army, Lee hopes to resume her travel- ing and go with Don to Germany after graduation. The nursery was always a favorite for Lee and someday in the future she and Don will probably start their own. Catherine Belle Yingling Union Bridge, Maryland Kitty is a true friend with a " heart of gold " . When we first met her three years ago she seemed to be a quiet reserved young lady, but there have been some changes made. Now. always ready for a good laugh and a good time, she is one of the most fun loving members of our class. On duty she possesses the unique ability to take everything in her stride and remains calm and composed in the most disturbing cir- cumstances.

In the beginning, it was just bed making, bed baths and bedpans, how- ever with increased experience came added re- sponsibility and soon we were left alone to manage a ward on day. relief and night shifts. The clinical instructors, doctors and staff nurses were ever present to supervise, offer con- structive criticism, and encourage and it is due to their diligence that we grew from timid fresh- men to confident graduate nurses. Opportunitv to work on both medical and sur- gical wards offered wide fields for learning. While most surgical patients were hospitalized for just one or two weeks, medical patients gen- erally stayed a month or more. We readily realized the variations of course and recovery of various diseases. On the medical wards we became acquainted with the numerous diagnostic tests which were constantly being run. and in surgical areas we learned the mysterious workings of mercury suc- tion, Wagensteen suction and oxygen tents. With our ward work was included a period of time in the Out Patient Department where we learned that many people depend on the clinics completely for their medical care. The necessity for immediate medical and surgical care in times of emergency was realized most acutely in the accident room where we all had numerous oppor- tunities to aid in suturing and in other ways help our house-staff with their work. Although not directly related to patient care, the diet school served as an essential part of our well integrated educational program. There, we not onl prepared and served diets, but also learned the importance of accurately calculating and replacing diabetic diets, and made certain that adequate dietary intake was maintained. With diet training the fluid team played an inipiirtanl ])art. for to supplement oral intake it was often necessary to administer intravenous fluids. We learned the necessity of hydration and acid-base balance, and under close super- vision, were permitted to start I. V. fluids our- selves. Now our student days are over and we will take our places in the medical profession as registered nurses, but we will always carry with us the knowledge obtained during the time spent in the field of medicine and surgery.

Although the outward appear- ance may have been one of confidence and self assurance every nerve and muscle was on edge. " Suppose I can ' t thread the needle and Dr. Sharpknife starts to shout? " All these thoughts pass through a frightened mind, but after one or two such experiences, the fear vanishes and a feeling of pride takes its place: pride to be an important part in the fight to save a life. It wasn ' t very funny when she had to spend half an hour looking for an Otis elevator, fal- lopian tube, or lucite balls, size 32B. but it was rather amusing when the joke was on someone else for a change. When the operation was over and you felt quite important, a mop was thrust into one hand and a damp cloth in the other and the blood- stained and cluttered room was all yours to clean — Remember ? The six weeks in the operating room went swiftly and as the " scrubs ' " and " circulations " added up to make quite an impressive list, the student nurse sincerelv hoped that the remainder of her specialties would prove as fascinating.

Pediatrics ll mattered little «lien one started and finished her three months in pediatries for with all sea- sons came the same mixture of sorrow, fun. work, routine, and children with their enjiafjiiif; personalities. Here we learned to applv the previoush learned principles of Medicine and Surgery to the " small fry " . At this point in our careers most of us for the first time became aware of the truly distinctive differences in the personalities of children. Their reactions to hos- pitalization were varied and thus they required individual consideration. We learned to adjust our routines to meet the emotional and physical requirements of the children, who Avere quite ahle to subtly hold reign on the Fifth Floor, their domain. On play therapy, we observed the child ' s reac- tion to group play and frequently were drawn into their activities. The children seemed to take delight in keeping the rotunda decorated accord- ing to season or holiday. ... In the Out Patient Department we probably became more acutely aware of the possible influence of home living conditions on the health of a family. We also became brutally cognizant that many pediatric ills could be prevented if parents understood the causitive factors. ... In the premature nursery we practiced the principles involved in the care of " The Littlest Angels " . those new-born infants who weighed under five and a half pounds at birth. We watched with awe as they miracu- lously gained weight and one happy day were able to leave the hospital to start bucking the outside world which will one day be theirs to govern. . . . While in the formula room, we mastered the preparation of formulas for bottle- fed babies and learned to make needed adapta- tions to enable aseptic preparation of baby ' s formula at home. Yes, peds offered many challenges which were successfully met. and in spite of numerous trials and tribulations, at the end of a trying day a tired student staggered off duty with the realiza- tion that her time had been well spent for here prevailed a spirit which in itself was the reward for conscientious endeavor. s(irne cH 170 -=t- 2- Obstetrics Obstetrical nursing has always been a favorite field of student nurses and such was the case with our class. The first cry of a newi)()rn liahy. the excited eyes of the mother and father all conihined made a pleasant atmosphere in which to learn. The wide field of experiences in clinic. luirsery. delivery and post ]jartnm presented an opportunity to participate and learn in all phases of obstetrics. Many of us had our first oppor- tunity to teach before a class of expectant mothers in clinic. Although we all trembled at the thought of teaching, once the class began, all fears vanished. Many of the mothers whom we recognized from clinic appeared again in the delivery room in active labor. No one can ever forget the first delivery with which she assisted. The wide-eyed student just stood off to the side watching in amazement the skillful hands of the obstetrician, and she breathed a sigh of relief when a normal, crying infant was delivered and shown to the mother for approval. There was always a rush to get the mother on the table and set up for delivery, but as soon as the baby was born a calm settled over the room. Next came the fool- prints, usually smeared over the page; head measurements, identification and a trip to the luirsery with the new babv. In the nursery this tiny child received its first bath, first set of clothes, and later the first taste of food which was just glucose. It took only a short time to find out that these tiny bundles didn ' t break and could really raise quite a when feeding time approached. Not forgetting the mother in all the scramble, a bed was made ready in the post partum de- partment and she left the delivery room con- tented. Soon the new baby was brought around for the mother to hold and examine for the first lime. If she wished the baby could stay in the room with her and be entirely hers to care for. This " rooming-in " established a close relation- shi|) with the mother and baby right from the start. After a few days the mother received instruc- tion concerning home care and she and the baby left the hospital with a acancy for one more expectant mother. During all this routine, the student nurse was present and enjoying her work fully. 180 9 P ' Tk —- - " W B J S 1 E » s s . i i Pre-natal teaching in O.B. clinic ' ' Ur ' lOi h Wb oJ l r qr a.

Psychiatry An excellent teaching program combined with a |jleasant atTnosphere has made the three month psychiatric aihliation at Springfield State Hospital a memorable and profitable experience. It was there we learned the close relationship between mental and physical illness. Through classes and clinical work we learned to meet the patients ' needs, thus enabling them to achieve emotional stability and security. Experience in psychotherapy, electric convul- sive therapv. insulin shock, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy gave us the opportunity to see progress made by emotionally disturbed patients. I)a by day we were given the chance to work with the patients, observe their reactions to vari- ous situations, and thus we gained greater in- sight into each individuals problems. Although psychiatry may not be the chosen field of nursing for each of us. it will be of great value in every day living. It has aided us in better understanding our patients and our asso- ciates, as well as ourselves. In January 1954 the first group of students began their affiliation at our new ps)chiatric institute. Here they received the same program (if education as offered at Sprinfield. Besides the vast amount of knowledge gained during these months, we profited by working with students from other schools and in an im- fainiliar hospital environment. All too soon, we repacked our belongings and said goodbye to our newly gained friends. How- ever we brought with us an understanding of mental illnesses which will enable us to give better care to the iiln siialK ill.

Unt liefore one can begin, or hope to aid these people, one mnst be aware of what can and nuist be done. There are countless agencies with which to become ae piainled. numerous charts to fill out and endless problems to be solved. The greatest task for the nurse is to gain the confi- dence of the faniiK and u ith friendly under- standing help them to heii) tiiemselves. The home is not the only place the nurse fimc- tions. Along with the daih home cases that must be seen, each nurse has a public school to visit, infant and well baby clinics, and a score of tuberculosis patients, waiting admission to a sanitorium. The knowledge gained during this two month affiliation can be applied to all fields of nursing. And to the people of the community the figure wearing the blue coat and hat and carrying the identifying black bag is a sign of hope. Student Government Association " . . . government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. " These principles upon which our great federal govcriunent is founded are the same ideals of freedom and honor upon which our Student Government Association is based. A way of grouj) living of which every student is a part; every student has a say in its government and conversely her actions are responsible to it. Every Spring elections of S.G.A. officers are held and each student votes for the andidates of her choice. This year the following officers were elected: President Betty DoRFLER First Vice-President Betty Shubkagel Second Vice-President NiKi Nations Secretary GEORGIA Cravfford Treasurer Marlene Reid Social Committee Chair. Gwen Hewell House Committee Chair. Katherine Robinson Social activities, various sports and religious activities are sponsored by the Student Govern- ment Association. The changing needs of the student body called for the clarification and revision of the consti- tution and by-laws. The immense task was under- taken during this administration. The necessity for an improved Honor System was realized and work toward this goal was initiated. To have an adequate Honor System, the judiciary powers must also be within the student body. To fulfill this a board was organ- ized to hear and act upon all infractions of house rules, rather than have such misdemeanors re- ferred to a faculty member. No major c ' hange can be made simply by the passing of a law; however this group has laid the foundation for many changes which it hop es will be accepted in the future. They have worked with the fact in mind that honor is a personal matter, beginning in the conscience of each individual, not in the rules of a governing body. Considering the accomplishments and the in- evitable short comings as well of the S.GA., we are all proud that we do have the privilege of free people — that of self-government. a i " We ' re jxidi little la ■ laiiili- . .
