7 iu Lj 1955 TERRAE lUARIAE IVIEDICUS The Annual Publication of the Graduating Class of the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE and SCHOOL OF NURSING Baltimore, Maryland Bsa ji Qg I I I In these years of change and turnover at Maryland, one is impressed with the daily occurrence of things so crucial in shaping the future course of events at our school. In the past few years many new faces have appeared in our midst, and many familiar old faces are bowing out after long and successful terms guiding the destinies of our School of Medicine. To this latter group we append these names: Dr. H. Boyd Wylie, our Dean, who has advised and guided us with his calm good sense through our four student years: Dr. Eduard Uhlenhuth, who introduced us to the rigors of medical school life in the Gross Anatomy Laboratory: Dr. Charles Reid Edwards, who. as acting head of the Department of Surgery, has instituted a fine teaching program for student and resident alike; Dr. Louis H. Douglass, famed chief of Ob- stetrics, whose teachings are indelibly written in the annals of his field; Dr. J. Mason Hundley Jr., who has taught us well the ways of Gynecology; and two men who officially retired last year but whom we, happily, still see fre- quently about our school; Dr. Frank Hachtel. a fine gentleman who worked long and hard as Head of the Department of Bacteriology; and Dr. Harry M. Robinson, Senior, beloved Chief of Dermatology, who gave his students many well-remembered and colorful days in the " Skin Clinic. " These men are stepping down from active positions in the school, but their influence and impact will forever be embossed upon our placard of achievement. Rising up to continue the fine work begun by these men is a whole host of young, vital, active men who will carry the future of our fine and beloved school on their shoulders. May they look to the past for inspiration and to the coming years for continuing progress. Dedication Having tlius put forth this statement of acknowledgment, may we. then, dedicate this book, Terrae Mariae Medicus 1955, to those men having retired, and to further dedicate it to those men who will continue on guiding our school. We thank them, one and all. for their leadership and guidance, and firmly state this thesis . . . " Our gratitude, Gentlemen, for a difficult job well done. " Oath of Hippocrates I swear by Apollo the physician, by Aesculapius, Hygeia, and Panacea and I take to witness all the gods and goddesses to keep according to my ability and my judgment the follow- ing oath: " To consider dear to me as my parents him who taught me this art: to live in common with him and if necessary to share my goods with him; to look upon his children as my own broth- ers, to teach them this art if they so desire without fee or written promise; to impart to my sons and the sons of the master who taught me and the disciples who have enrolled themselves and have agreed to the rules of the profession, but to these alone, the precepts and the instruction. " I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients accord- ing to my ability and m y judgment and never do harm to any- one. To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug nor give advice which may cause his death. Nor will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion. But I will preserve the purity oi my life and my art. " I will not cut for stone, even for the patient in whom the dis- ease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners (specialist in this art). In every house where I enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill doing and all seduction, and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession, or outside my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not be be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal. " If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or vibkite it, may the reverse be my lot. " Coming to the University of Maryland from Texas Western at the beginning of this year, Dr. Elkins has undertaken the task of guiding the destinies of the grad- uate and undergraduate schools. Our salute to him and our best wishes for a happy and productive future with the University. Wilson H, Elkins, B.A., M.A.. Litt.B., D.Phil. Presulent, University of Maryland TO THE aiADDATES OF 1955i After a difficult but interesting " adventure in education, " you are approaching the day of graduation. I extend congretulatlona and wish you succeae and happiness in the years ahead. lou can look forward to a wonderf il future. In the professions dealing with health, there is an opportunity for service which is not found in other fields. Obviously you will want to serve yourself and family, but if you seek fortune as the only reward you will not achieve genuine success or happiness. Tou should go out into society with a feeling of optimism, knowing that you are prepared to render a service to others who may bo in need of comfort and attention. In ministering to their requirements, you will feel an inner satiafaction which will enrich yo ir life and give you the courage and inspiration to achieve greatness. As you change from a student to an aluiiinxis, I hope that you will maintain an active interest in the affairs of the University and that you will use your Influence in helping to build a greater institution, With beat wishes and good luck, I am t(M M .,. Wilson H. Elklna President Dr. Stone, a veteran of many years of service in the Armed Forces of the United States, has come to the Uni- versity of Maryland this year and assumed a position, newly created, which co-ordinates the activities of the University, the Hospital, and the School of Medicine. To him go our wishes for a bright and full future in a most difficult and responsible task. Best wishes to the class of 1955 William S. Stone, M. D. Director, Medical Education and Research University Hospital and the School of Medicine By your undergraduate accomplish- ments, your demonstrated sense of re- sponsibility and character, you have shown the professional qualities that are needed by those who aspire to be- come physicians. We have high hopes that you will continue to develop and will maintain the tradition and stand- ards of your profession. William S. Stone, M.D. Director of Medical Education and Research H. Boyd Wylie, M. D. Dean of the School of Medicine Retiring this year after long and loyal service to the school, Dean Wylie has been a guiding light in the co- ordination of student-faculty affairs.

D. Nataro C. Ronald Kooi s Joseph E. Stitcher William F. Krome Faculty Editor Photography Editor Advertising Advertising Co-manager Co-manager Murray M. Kappelman Associate Editor Anthony A. Lewandowski Class Editor ( Leonard J. Morse Associate Editor John George Albrecht Jack has the sole distinction among us of having been in a movie some years ago. Fortunately for us, he forsook the silver screen for the healing arts. Queens, Long Island, in 1929 first learned of his presence: Jones Beach has employed him as a life- guard; and Adelphi College numbers him among its alumni. On coming to Baltimore he brought wife Sybil, a Goucher grad, with him. Friendly and mild-mannered. Jack has not as yet settled on a specialty or location of practice but strongly confirms re- ports that a rotating internship in Virginia is his procedure of choice. George Kohler Baer In 1928 George put in his name as potential M. D. in an all ready medically prominent family. Given the privilege of Army life for a year and a half in Japan and Korea, he marched back to Baltimore to finish at Johns Hopkins and come to our hallowed halls. Spending off-hours at City Hospitals, he has been fre- quently found awaiting the " crowning " on A2. Undecided as yet as to type and place of internship, George will carry his quiet and efficient ways into a thriving practice in his chosen field. Stanley Paul Balcerzak, Jr. All that Pittsburgh produces is not steel — Stan being a prime example. Born there, raised there, attending college there, he has been lent to us for four years by the Smoky City. The in- trigues of medical school and Nu Sig occupied his freshman days but the gleam in his eye which he brought back from his first summer could only have resulted from other interests. Ac- cordingly Stan and Mary, a charming Pittsburgh lass, were wed during the second summer and a husky heir appeared during the third. Stan, a member of AOA in his senior year, plans to intern and practice internal medicine in i ' ittsburgh. James John Ball Although Jim was born in Flint, Michigan, his dad ' s army career made his visit there short. He did stay in one place long enough, however, to complete three years at the University of Illinois, winning a Phi Beta Kappa key in his third year. In his four years in Baltimore, his interests have ranged far and wide — from medicine, to bridge, to automobiles, to wife Anne, whom he wed in July ' 53, and recently born daughter. After graduation, Jim will again be on the move to an internship in the South, and a future in general practice. Robert Maitland Barnett, Jr. In 1930 Baltimore got a fleeting glimpse of young Bob, but he was soon on the go — Washington, Charleston, Savannah, and finally Durham which he now calls home. After three years at the College of Charleston. South Carolina, he trekked back to Terra Mariae and proved a steadfast good worker, worthy of the title of Physician. With interests varying from Verdi to tennis, from fire fighting in California to the operating floor battle- ground at South Baltimore General, Bob hopes to intern in his adopted Dixie with practice there in either Pediatrics or Urology. Eugenio Enrique Benitez-Van Rliyn First opening his eyes to the Caribbean sun twenty three years ago in Santurce, Puerto Rico, Gene spent three years at the University of Puerto Rico with intensive study and extensive sun bathing, before coming Stateside to Baltimore. Outside activities in Med School include membership in Phi Beta Pi, and the New- man Club, and election to AOA in his third year. Summers have been spent back home instructing anatomy at his Alma Mater, and officiating at the medical OPD at Mimiza Hospital. A future in either Internal Medicine or Pediatrics is still to be decided. 1S yj Otto Christian Beyer In 1928 Otto looked upon the world and began the pursuit of his M. D. College days at Loyola were rudely interrupted by a three year service with Uncle Sam, part of which was spent at the foot of Fujiyama. Bringing with him a small repertoire of Japanese songs, a ready smile, a dabbling in amateur photog- raphy, and an easy going nature, he took up the banner of ' 55, carrying it along with his partners in crime. Future plans are indefinite but a local internship and general practice in Baltimore seem to be in the offering. Norman Blanlunan The year 1931 found Baltimore presented with a loyal son for Norm has spent his undergraduate and graduate years all on the University of Maryland campus. Ever unruffled and friendly, he can always be expected to enliven the conversation with his subtle and sparkling wit. Long will be remembered his famous comment of " mental dystocia " following an Obstetrics exam. Such an avid reader of Newsweek is he, that few were the occasions on which he was found without a copy. An active Phi DE member, Norm took time out to marry Roslyn in 1952. His plans center around general practice following a rotating internship here in Baltimore. Albert Bennett Bradley Despite six years in a Tennessee military school, Al ' s first love is Baltimore where he was born in 1927. Two years in the army medical corps, and school at Johns Hopkins preceded his arrival to the class of ' 55. Known as a " Hi-Fi " ' advocate, a squash |)layer of note, and a regular at Nu Sig parties, A! and his wife, Dorothy, boast three young daughters ages 3, 4, and 5. Al worked at " Jessups Cut " during his senior year, and will be remembered for his refreshing wit. internship at Maryland General and general practice loom up ahead. 10 Philip Craig Bruiischwyle r Taking his first breath in Kingston, West Virginia in 1929, he stayed in his home state and culminated his schooling at West Virginia University with an A. B. degree before joining our ranks. Having spent sometime in the past two years externing at South Baltimore and St. Joseph ' s, Phil has a taste for good music, spectator sports, and bull sessions, and has proved author of many of our lighter moments. Still on the roster of eligible bachelors, Phil ' s plans are still amorphous but will crystallize with an internship at a teaching hospital. ' V Foster Lucius Bullard, Jr. The fore most representative in ' 55 of the deep, deep South " Cuhnel " Bullard, suh, Georgia born and Florida raised, has treated us Yankees with understanding, sympathy and tolerance. An Emory University grad, Foster will never forgive us for our winter weather. His diverse interests center on surgery, boats, and newly won wife, Connie, with whom he will return to his native Dixie to pursue internship. This sturdy, crew-cutted son of Mint-Julep-land looks forward to training and practice in Surgery. Donald Chisholni Cameron This dapper gentleman BOA ' ed in Kentucky in 1930 and soon journeyed to Delaware which he now calls home. A four year sojourn at the University of Delaware netted him an AB degree and an interest in cute coed Marianne who has since joined him in marital bliss. The prize in a tug-of-war between Uncle Sam and the U. of M., " Tom " chose the latter and joined our ranks. Possessor of a quiet dignity and considerable poise, he looks forward to internship in Wilmington and practice in Delaware. 11 ' " . - f9 ' Neal Conrad Capel First seen in Salt Lake City, Utah, one fine clay in 1928, Neal commenced his successful medical career in 1951, after gradu- ating from the University of Utah. With fond recollections, he tells of a summer doing Mormon missionary work in England and western Europe. His post-Junior year summer was spent ex- terning at one of his home town hospitals. Neal and wife, Lucy, proudly boast of being parents of two robust boys. He con- templates an army internship soon and reports a yearning for practice way back there in Utah. Joseph William Cavallaro J-oe (no relation to Carmen I made his debut in 1926 and with his typical diligence metamorphased through the stages of: undergraduate at Potomac State, electrician in the Navy, and Pharmacist at Maryland before going medical. He and his wife, Harriet, take pride in beautifying their home on the outskirts of Baltimore and living the mature, independent life. Summering with the City Health Department and in local pharmacies, Joe looks forward to a Baltimore internship and practice somewhere on the East Coast. " 31 y Roderick Edward Charles Rod. horn in Baltimore in 1927, has spent all his da s here except for two years in the Navy, and study at Howard I ' ni- versity from which he graduated and entered the medical world. Since entering medical school extracurricular football and box- ing have given way to the Sinai Hosi)ilal laboratory where he has worked for four )ears. Intcrnshi|) plans arc still indefinite but Freedman Hospital in D. C. is the leading possibility. Although uncertain about internship. Rod ' s plans with Debbie arc definite enough to include a wedding date in June. 12 James McClay Close Run out of Houtzdale, Pennsylvania, his birthplace, Jim settled down in Cumberland before heading south to graduate from VMI in 1951. After spending a summer as a coal hauler, he decided the restful life on Cape Cod was the thing. A restaurateur (waiter) for a few years, he externed at Cape Cod Hospital in ' 54. Well stocked with friends. Jim has been one of the most popular faces about school. Engaged to Southern belle Linda Piland, he plans to ring wedding bells soon. Possibilities of Army internship and OB — GYN are under his present considera- tion at this writing. fH n Jonas Kolker Cohen All the screaming in 1929 was not limited to Wall Street since Baltimore had it, too, in Jonas. In 1951 with an A.B. in psy- chology from College Park and a glint in his eye for charming Maria Elena, he became our " consultant " in classical literature and art. Mexico, the birthplace of his wife, stands high on his list of interests. Varied summer activities include being camp physician in ' 54. After internship, Jonas intends to pursue his interests in medicine, psychiatry , and the classics. Roger Willard Cole Reared in the wilds of up-state New York, starting in 1927, Reg has had a varied career which included attending Cornell University, service in the Navy, and finishing pre-med at Mary- land. Interested in the great out-doors, sailing, and the ways of women, he is great to have around, particularly in the lamenting post-exam hours, when he could be counted on, with more modesty than truth, to insist that he did worse than anyone else. Elected to AOA in his senior year, Rog ' s plans for internship are still undecided, but he looks to the goal of being a " Good Doctor " . 13 Roger Detlef Cornell A product of Chicago in 1929, Rog came East at a tender age to settle in Bethesda. After an essentially normal course through the vagaries of youth he migrated South to attend Davidson Col- lege in the class of ' 51. An avid golfer, he has been known to play the Clifton Park Course in the snow. An externship at Church Home has helped round out his medical experience. Summers with the National Institute of Health and in a local furniture store have made Rog an expert on Toxoplasmosis and dusting, respectively. His plans center on a future in a small town general practice. Thomas Warner Cowan Shanghaied into the army upon completion of high school, he fled with his discharge to take up engineering at Slippery Rock and Penn State. However, Tom found the field of medicine more attractive and completed his pre-med training at College Park, where he met and married Lois and now boasts two offspring. Summers have been spent at Gunther ' s brewery, the State Health Department and National Institutes of Health. His interests center about his family and frequent tinkering with radio equip- ment. Tom ' s future plans are in the developmental stage at present. Everard Fraiit-is Cox Introduced to the world in St. George. I ' lab. in 1920. Kv spent five war years as a carrier pilot in the Pacific, following that with work in printing and publishing in New York. Forsaking the business world, he went home and graduated from the I niversit of Utah in 1951. Married to Lcla thirteen )ears ago, Cox displays Sue, age 10, and Charlie, age seven, proudly. Class president as a sophomore, he is a regular at Phi Beta Pi. March r . and the near future hold the decisions as to his internship and future training ambitions. 14 Mary Viola Daly On the distaff side of our class we have Mary, born in Indiana, now hailing from Silver Springs, Maryland. Educational distinc- tion has been hers with scien ce degrees from American University and Iowa State College. Possessor of ready wit and a genuine sense of humor, she has been sophomore class secretary and ex- tern at Lutheran Hospital. After leaving the classrooms, wards, and clinics, Mary will follow her internship most likely in a career in her major field of medical interest — internal medicine. Theodore Alvin Danii A Baltimorean since a cold November morn in 1930, Ted has spent both undergraduate and medical school days at the Uni- versity of Maryland. Taking Horace Greeley ' s advice, he went West summers to work on a mosquito research project for the California Department of Public Health. Captured by the wonders of the Golden Gate, Ted hopes to intern out there and, after two years with Uncle Sam, to settle down to a general practice by the blue Pacific. John Joseph Darrell Owner of a golden-toned tenor voice to be heard at a moment ' s notice, a long experience in the Merchant Marine as " Sparks " — a radio operator, and a long blue Oldsmobile convertible, John — a life long Baltimore citizen — has carried his winning ways through Loyola and Maryland. Seen at all class affairs and Phi Bete parties with Mary Lou, his fiance, he is an addict of three piece combos playing at local bistros with whom he has been noted to sing a few numbers. Internship at Mercy and genera] practice lie ahead. 15 Thomas Edward Davis The year 1929 saw Tom appear in New York City, later to migrate through Tenafly, New Jersey, to Cumberland, Maryland in 1941. Stealing a sheepskin from Washington and Lee in 1951, he then came to Bressler ' s halls. Loyal to Nu Sig where spent three years, he took his fourth year treading the floors as extern at Union Memorial. Vacations have been occupied as railroad worker, camp counselor and extern at Peninsula General. Stead- fastly single for a time, Tom is now on the verge of the marital state with Claire, nurse at University, where he plans to intern and follow up with training in internal medicine. Donald Howard Dembo Appearing on the Baltimore scene in 1931, Don went through Johns Hopkins University before joining the ranks at the Uni- versity of Maryland. In August, 1952, he deserted the single state and married Libby. Known for his worthy contributions to any medical discussion, he spent one summer as a Psychiatry fellow and another as medical extern at University Hospital. After finishing the rigors of medical school, this loyal son of Phi Delta Epsilon looks forward to internal medicine and a long line of little Dembos. Henry Augnst Diederichs Hank made his debut in 1929 in Belleville, Illinois, soon going to Fairborn, Ohio, to hang his hat. Wittenberg College gave him his pre-med training and A. B. degree. At medical school he was extern in x-ray during his second year, and in March, 1954 he began working in shifts with wife, Ardie, to watch over the needs of his private course in Pediatrics, Heidi Ann. Reserved and studious, he garnered information first hand on mumps in his third year. Hank aspires to internship with the U. S. Public Health Service and a Midwestern general practice. 16 William Dvoriiie Taking his first bow in Baltimore in 1930, Bill swung up to Western Maryland to earn a degree in psychology. Between college and medical school he worked for a time as a " private eye " . Later summers have been spent as camp counselor and surgical extern at Sinai. Varied hobbies include weight lifting, lacrosse officiating, and being a Naturalist. Holding forth as sergeant-at-arms at Phi Delta Epsilon, Bill ' s future is still hush- hush but rumors have leaked out that Plastic Surgery holds his special interest. John Albert Engers, Jr. A challenger for " pitch " laurels is this Baltimore born George- town alumnus. Having spent eighteen glorious months as Navy radar technician, John decided the medical world was for him. In between golf and studies, he married Eleanor and is now " Dad " to two heirs — John III, and Judy. He lays claim to being the only unbiased Oriole fan in Baltimore and is frequently seen at the Stadium. A veteran of summer service in local hospital labs, John will intern in Baltimore but avers that plans beyond that are still to be decided. Joseph Chalice Eshelnian Sneaking into Hagerstown from Pennsylvania, roaring from there to Lombard and Greene, and gaining weight on the food of Medicine, Joe, solid citizen of Nu Sigma Nu, is a shining example of the relaxed attitude, the astute thinker, and shrewd card player. A devotee of the single life but susceptible to long-lashed bru- nettes, and known to his associates as " Louie " , he is one of the never-to-be-forgotten men of note of ' 55. Future plans consist of internship in a small hospital and general practice in a small town as " country doctor. " 17 Martin Jerome Feldman First becoming a Baltimorean some thirty-one years ago and having been one from those neo-natal days up to the present time, Marty became acquainted with the college world at Baltimore Junior College and Loyola, from which he was graduated. Academic days were interrupted by a three-year jaunt with Uncle Sam. A hard worker, he has spent his week ends in jobs ranging from bartender to taxi driver. Married and the father of a young son, Marty hopes to intern at a local hospital and take up general practice. James Nelson Frederick , Blazing a trail out of the West Virginia hills, his home since 1926, through two years with the " Government " and a degree from the University of West Virginia. Jim came to Baltimore with his lovely wife. Gene, to settle down to the study of medicine. A familiar figure at St. Agnes Hospital as veteran extern, member of the " Noon-time Pitch Club " in the lounge. Jim has lived a busy four years with us. Internship at St. Agnes will follow graduation, and then — back to life in general practice in " them thar hills. " r ' n Georpc Hamilton Friskey A twenty-eight-year-old native Baltimorean in no apparent dis- tress, appearing alert and cooperative and usually philosophizing about life in general is descriptive of George. Sloughing out of the Air Force after eighteen months of travel about Europe, he took up the art and science of medicine at Mar land after college days at Johns Hopkins. Still single but on the brink. George as|)ires to a local internship, possibly at University, and then he will choose between Pathology and general practice when it comes time to make that crucial decision. 18 Charles Barton Galloway Known to his confreres as Bart, this native of Baltimore but ex-resident of Chicago, Pittsburgh, and points along the B. and 0. landed at Johns Hopkins before entering the U. of M. Church Home occupied him as extern, and there he met Jeanie. who. in December 1954, escorted him from the ranks of the single into the marital state. An avid member and contender for the title in the " Noon-time Pitch Club, " ' White Sox fan, and learned sports authority, Bart inclines toward Surger y or G N and expects to intern in the Middle West or in the Navy. John Ross Canld Entering the world north of the border in Collingwood, On- tario, in 1928, Jack migrated south to Hyattsville. Maryland, at a tender age. Graduating in 1951 from College Park, he then entered the Baltimore branch with the Class of ' 55. A loyal Nu Sig and rabid pitch player, he has displaved an interest in In- fectious Diseases by working in this field at both Walter Reed and University Hospitals. Married to Ruth in 1953. Jack dis- closes plans to intern at University Hospital and pursue his interest in the above-mentioned field. Vernon Maynartl Gelhans Vern, an avid devotee of baseball, cards, and the art of medicine, joined ' 55 after short stops in Annapolis, his birth- place; College Park: and Loyola. This tall, well-developed, well- nourished male has been active in Cancer Research during vaca- tions with Dr. Figge ' s group. In May 1954 Vern decided to share his interests with Leona, his redheaded wife. When his medical school years are over, he will })ut on his list of future plans a rotating internship, followed by residency and practice in OB-GYN. ' y 19 ' 1 tw» ■ ? George Ediiiiind Gifford, Jr. Born in 1930 in that infamous town of Elkton. Maryland, he now calls his home county Cecil, which he stoutly maintains is Paradise Revisited. Coming to Baltimore after receiving a degree with honors from College Park, George has displayed an active interest in many medical fields, with fellowships in the Depart- ments of Histology and Neuropathology and a summer on a research project at Spring Grove State Hospital. With other hobbies including history, nature, and unusual bits of informa- tion, he plans a rotating internship and practice in a field as yet to be determined. George Travers Giliiiore Though born twenty-seven years ago in New York, George has adopted the Free State as home. Getting his first taste of the healing arts during a hitch in the Navy, he returned to the Home- wood campus, during which time he married his Hazelton wife, Jeanne. The union was destined to boost the " Pediatric Popula- tion " by four beautiful children, far and away qualifying George as the school ' s Number One Papa. After a rotating internship, he has no definite plans, though general practice seems to be the most likely choice. Julian Robert Goldberg Sole owner of the most infectious laugh in the class. Julian first made it heard in Baltimore in 1932. He carried it through Johns Hopkins and thence to the hallowed halls on Greene Street, where the laugh, a genial humor, and a quick wit have helped ease the rigors of medical school. University Hospital saw him working in the Department of Anesthesiology during the sunnncr of 1954. " Jules " has scheduled a local internshij). a few years as personal ])hvsi ian to Uncle Sam. and a life of general |)ra(liti()ner in Baltimore. 20 Marvin Alfred Goldiner A twenty-six-year veteran of Baltimore society, Marv got a taste of medicine as a navy medic. Following a whirlwind tour of College Park, " Bull " left his beloved Terps to take up the task of becoming successful in his chosen field, internal medicine. He has externed three years in anesthesia at City Hospitals. Recog- nized widely as a connoisseur of the finer things in life, his chief non-medical interests lie somewhere between the bridge table and the Nurses ' Home. Still a bachelor, Marv ' s immediate hopes call for a straight internship in Boston. Gary Swan Gosliorn Quiet, likeable " Cos " was delivered to the medical profession in 1929, just in time for the big crash. Hurdling this and any other obstacle put before him, he moved through Baltimore City College, Homewood, and graduate years at medical school with ease and assurance. Summers have been spent externing at Uni- versity, St. Agnes, and Peninsula General Hospitals — the latter in the giddy whirl of Ocean City. In his crystal ball is seen a rotating internship, a naval officer ' s uniform, and perhaps wed- ding bells in the not-too-distant future. Daniel Bernard Harris First seeing daylight as an LOA on September 6, 1930. this soft-spoken, pleasant-mannered young man " pre-medded " at College Park, where he found enough time away from the books to begin dating Ann.

Our dreams are of different stuff. We are the sophisticates of long gleaming test tubes and shining culture plates. Our colonies are things of beauty, in- habited by staid cocci, swimming rods, and elegant fungi. Our inspiration is the hour of charm and our legent is of molds and ethers; analeptics and antispas- modics. Wherein our delusions contain the croaking Rana, and our rodent friends are long suffering. We probe the mysteries of life, measure heartbeats, and our smoked drums are seldom idle, staining our fingers, im- pressing our minds. Reaction and action, dosage and tolerance become the details of our lives. Our inquiring eyes count corpuscles and leucocytes, and our scrutiny falls upon the Falciparum, the Schistosoma, and the En- damoeba. Our podium speaks of many things. At times the voice is forceful disciplining us to incision, drainage, and antisepsis. Again the voice is spritely of delivery and babies. And again of the eternal woman and the function of femininity. We are reintroduced to the hal- lowed halls of Anatomy and mark our bodies with color. And with our ears we hear of our enemy; our eyes, armed with the microscope, examine the evidence of his presence in the guise of inflammation, degeneration, and most deadly neoplasm. Upon living bodies we search him with inspection of our eyes, with the touch of our fingers, with the boom in our stethoscopes, and the tap of our soft hammers. With instability of the learning we look to our next step and for greater revelation. For we are Sophomore, the wise still foolish. Kneeling: Reever. Poland. Wilner. Batlinn, Zullo, Calciano, Fiocco.

The Student Council The " liaison officers " between student and faculty, the Student Council has a multitude of functions, all crucial in the integration of inter-class policy and individual preference. Composed of the President and two Repre- sentatives from each class, chosen in aiuuial elections, the Council meets regularly to discuss the many prob- lems which arise in the course of a busy school year. Each sj)ring. the Council and the Faculty get together at a banquet where the members air the opinions and problems presented by the separate classes as a result of a yearly general survey. Praise and criticism are put forth in a sincere effort to alter and improve our medical education. Through its striving for the attainment of close co- operation between student and facult . the ( ' ouncil worki hard to bring the classes together into a well-knit group, and to make the relationship of Professor and Student an harmonious and amicable one. 48 IU:il7::;;. !-f ' v-.r ' rr-v, u., DEPARTMENTS Gross Anatomy Gross Anatomy offers us some of our most vivid memories. Lest any freshman feel that he could relax now that he had weathered the storm of Pre-Med., no less than six " Profs " kept up a steady tattoo of quizzes to ensure diligence. Dr. Uhlenhuth felt that it was the best way to make us master the myriad details of the human body — a sine qua non for the practice of in- telligent medicine. There were approximately 400 hours of classwork and much more than that of home " beaver- ing " in the first semester. Who will ever forget those January days of living, eating and sleeping Anatomy — ■ a complete dedication to one master. When it was over many of us had found out what upperclassmen had meant by their remark — " Pass Gross and the rest is downhill. " Indeed, this proved near to the truth. As we leave Maryland this year, so does one of its most colorful figures. Dr. Uhlenhuth completes 30 fruitful years of teaching our peculiar breed. Known far and wide for his original research on the human Eduard Uhlenhuth, Ph.D. Another table quiz? Of course, there are variations , Vernon Krahl, Ph.D. Individual attention. pelvis, our respected professor published an excellent work in 1953 which has found ready acceptance by clinicians in G. U. and Gyn, surgery. With him go our earnest wishes for a continued association with the school. Future classes should have the benefit of his unique gifts even if on a limited basis. The department presents a little known side to the average student, but nevertheless one of significance in the overall medical picture. Research occupies some of the time of all the full-time personnel. Dr. Krahl continues his work on the finer structure of the mam- malian lung; Dr. McCafferty is absorbed in the tracing of radioactive materials from mother to fetus; Miss Wadsworth applied her knowledge of occupational therapy to a study of the mechanics of the pelvis. In addition, the students benefit greatly by the presence of a top-notch practicing surgeon in the person of Dr. Karl Mech. He affords an excellent medium for cor- relation of anatomy with surgery. 51 Histology, Embryology and IMeuroanatomy Frank H. J. Figgc, Ph.D. Probably the most versatile stall in the school, Drs. Figge, Mack and Harne teach the freshmen no less than three subjects. Their material includes the whole kaleidoscope of human development — from ovum to highly specialized brain cell, both microscopically and grossly. We have been taught to consider not only structural detail of human tissue but why it is so constructed. Philosophical problems concerned us under the name " concepts. " Who will ever forget the final exam question three years ago — " Give your concept of the human body. Modern Da Vincis, we could not be accused of being narrow-visioned scientists. The staff devotes much of its time to important behind- the-scenes research. The major project concerns the use of porphyrin as a diagnostic aid in the detection of cancer. It is known that this material tends to concentrate in neo- plastic tissue. Investigations are being carried on to show whether trauma and obesity increase the incidence of cancer in mice. Still other work on cancer occupies the time of two senior students. Gifford has been working on the rela- tion of stress to the incidence of tumors. Gelhaus concerns himself with the mutual antagonism of leukemia and cancer in mice. It is not generally known but student research is strongly encouraged by Dr. Figge. Perhaps a new Charlie Best will some day come forth from our own ranks. Drs. Figge and Mack: " Do you think they ' ll stay awake. " ' But Vm sure it ' s there. " Progress, and more progress. Dr. Eniil G. Schmidt, Ph.D., LL.B. Drs. Schmidt and Van Der Linde in action. Biochemistry Organization par excellence Lest describes Dr. Eniil .Schniiiit ' s course in Biochemistry. Besides a Ph.D. and a LL.B., our benevolent chemistry professor must have a secret degree in time and motion engineering. The first day, we walked into the laboratory, opened our lockers, and found our equipment laid out accord- ing to a map. Every movement from there on was planned so that no time was wasted hunting for reagents or gadgets — no bending of glass rods, boring holes in corks, or weighing to the fourth decimal point. Ninety- seven per cent of the drudgery had been removed and the flavor left in. That the method was successful we came to realize in succeeding years when we called on the fundamental lessons given to us in the freshman year. Research proceeds along many lines. The effect of anti-biotics on intestinal flora with emphasis on stimu- lation of growth are being studied. There is work being done on oxidation products of stilbesterol, on sex hormones in atherosclerosis, and on the functions of diamines and polyamines in microbial metabolism. We wish Drs. Schmidt. Herbst and Van Der Linde much success in these endeavors. " But Miss Brown, I ' ve done it six times all ready. " 54 Physiology This was a relaxed course but by no means a " breeze. " Dr. Amberson and staff were experts in imparting knowledge without anxiety side effects. It is his theory that learning is best nurtured in an atmosphere of co- operation rather than competition. Liberal use of out- line material supplemented lectures. We were constantly asked for suggestions on how to improve the course. Perhaps the best example of the friendly approach was the novel method of grading examinations. Questions were graded solely on a " Pass or Fail " basis. Our goal became the acquisition of adequate information rather than the outscoring of our classmates. It became so popular that the Student Council officially requested its schoolwide adoption in 1953. It failed to carry its point but it has remained a fixture in the department with the overwhelming student approval. As we advanced from year to year, each of us learned to value this spirit of cooperation amongst us more and more. It was in harmony with Hippocratic ideals of brotherhood and a refreshing change from the fierce competition of premedical days. Many of us feel that Dr. Amberson in no small way helped to effect this significant change in attitude and we are grateful for his influence. William R. Amberson, Ph.D., Pli.B. Dr. Ferguson supervising his charges. ■ ' A block and lackle would help. " 55 Pharmacology John C. Krantz, Jr., Ph.D., D.Sc. Dr. Carr on the podium. For vears we liarl heard of " The Hour of Charm " and we soon found out why. Dr. Krantz glided througli his lectures in a way that incited envy. He had a knack of tnaking even chemistrv seem ])oetic. " Hit them with a million units of penicillin " he ' d say, bringing down his pointer with a hing. " Magna Therapia Sterilizans " and " Armamentarium " became by-words to all of us. We were all proud to know that the textbook written by Drs. Krantz and Carr was used so universally at other schools. The " tea party " was a unique device designed to make palatable the semi annual oral quizzes. True, a phenobarb cocktail probably would have been a better carminative than the xanthine brew, but we felt no pain. The department has made other contributions besides a first-rate textbook. Foremost in its work on anes- thetics. Trimar, Vinymar and now Fluoroniar were developed and have had successful clinical trials. The latter with its use of fluorine atom represents a distinct advance. Work is also being done on anaerobic gly- colysis in normal tissue and on theophyllin derivatives for use in hypertension. The famous Christmas allegory presented by Dr. Krantz about the seas of the Holy Land will always be remembered by us. The very fine motion picture he crea ted on drug addiction in the medical profession certainly should win him additional well-deserved plaudits. It is gratifying to know that all students throughout the country will have the opportunity to see it. ; .-VT h w iri ; - = ( Remember this scene, seniors? " This compound has its limitations as a cathartic. " Dr. Burgison in a scientific dissertation. Microbiology Charles L. Wisseman, Jr., A.B., M.S., M.D. This was the course that kept our lamps burning overtime during the sophomore year. " Now who was it that isolated Mycobacterium schlagen from a boa con- strictor in 1897? " We found out on those short, lethal true-false quizzes that the footnotes in our text were more important than we had thought. At times like these we felt like candidates for a Ph.D. in Bacteriology. The major quizzes, however, balanced the scale with their medical approach, and all of us weathered the storm. A major change has been wrought since we took " Bac-T " in that the subject is now called Microbiology and is headed by Charles L. Wisseman, Jr., A.B., M.S., M.D. This Texan was graduated from Southwestern Medical College in 1946 and comes to us with an im- posing record of achievement in the Army and in U. S. Government agencies. He has been especially active in rickettsial disease research and has written many papers in the field. We welcome him into our family and wish him success. How can we leave Maryland without a tribute to Dr. Frank Hachtel who guided us when we took the course? In the classroom he amazed us with his photographic memory; on the outside with his knowledge of his- torical and cultural topics. To him go our wishes for continued health and happiness.

Spencer, M.D. Pathology The department with which we had the most pro- longed contact was Dr. Spencer ' s. It began in our fourth semester and ended formally with the sixth, but even in senior year its staff backed up medical and surgical clinical conferences. Saturday morning C.P.C. ' s were ably conducted by Dr. Spencer and were amongst the high points of the clinical years. We soon found out that skillful medical practice must be grounded on a solid foundation of Pathology. Mastery of symptoma- tology is worthless witliout knowledge of disease pro- cesses. We studied the causes and results of these pro- cesses at every stage — on the slide, the specimen and the cadaver. Visualization of these was a sine qua non of intelligent diagnosis. No department ever denied the truth of this principle or begrudged Pathology its share of the curriculum. Most of us are not aware of the other work performed by the staff. Joint study with the Department of Surgery is being done on the correction of myocardial ischemia. The application of histologic criteria to diagnosis and prognosis of thyroid cancer is another concern. The histo-chemistry of tissue ground substances is being investigated. Studies of cutaneous lesions in leukemia have already been done while others are planned on the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In the future we shall be looking in the literature for these contributions. The autopsy room in session. Saturday morning CPC. ( 0 Medicine Our theory — The patient is not only a fellow human being coming to us for the treatment of his illness, but he is, in the last analysis, the true textbook by means of which the medical student, the physician of the future, learns the intricacies of his art. Our classroom is the bedside where we can see and care for the Whole Patient. Dr. Theodore E. Woodward Professor of Medicine and Head of the Deparlment Dr. T. Nelson Carev Professor of Clinical Medicine Dr. Maurice C Pincoffs Dr. Pincoffs, now, heads the Department of Preventive Medicine and Rehabilitation, dealing with medical care problems and the broad sub- ject of the influences on di sease, their control and management from a social and economic viewpoint.

Dr. Marriott conducting morning rounds on 3D. In our Junior year the Department of Medicine took on a new method of teaching. Instead of hour upon hour of lecture, the new philosophy was to introduce the neophyte to Medicine in the second year, with a course in Physical Diagnosis, and a series co-relating basic with clinical science. In the third year the student is on the wards for two months doing routine histories, physicals, and lab work. His textbook is the patient, he learns at the bedside, he reads independent of assign- ment. In the fourth year he works in the Clinic for a month and. unique this year, many students took the opportunity to work as full-time interns in the hospital for a month. The conference, the CPC. the seminar, the patient are the avenues open to our learning. Under the able leadership of Dr. Theodore E. Wood- ward, the department has, in two short years, made great strides in this new methodology. A Neurology Department, headed by Dr. Charles Van Buskirk. has been created and has become a favorite of the students; and many other sub-departments are planned. The stu- dent reaction to this new system — all are in agreement as to its inestimable value. We, as graduating Seniors have reaped its benefits; and we are sure those who succeed us will benefit, too. 62 Schanberger and Dr. Legge — " There is some improve- ment, so let ' s see him in a week. " The front line. Ann Ward and Dr. Parker in discussion. Pratt gets a consultation. 63 64 Psychiatry Jacob E. Finesinger, B.A., M.A., M.D. After many years of closely guided premedical in- struction with emphasis on memorizing scientific data, we suddenly found ourselves in a new type of course. The approach was " You ' re big boys now; here ' s what you should know; go get it. " The aim was to study the " whole person in the whole situation " no matter why he came to our office. The essential element in the intelligent handling of a patient was a satisfactory doctor-patient relationship. We found out what common sense should have dictated, but what is often forgotten — let the patient do the talking for two good reasons. First, he ' ll like you better; and second, it is the best method for finding out what is wrong with him physi- cally and emotionally. By listening we would be able to evaluate the influence of the personality on the disease and conversely the influence of the disease on the per- sonality. In first and second years we saw only average hospital patients of the non-psychotic variety. In third and fourth years we saw psychotics for the first time. An interesting innovation was our assignment to the dis- turbed wards for a full week of evenings to study the mechanisms presented by the patients in a non-medical relationship. Many, many hours were spent in de- veloping the art of history taking. An interesting new part of the curricuhmi in the senior year was study of public health social problcnis through home visits. We were able to see first hand the role played by home environment in disease. Reports prepared by us were often of direct constructi c value to these unfortunate families. We feel that herein lies a fertile field for future contributions by our school to the health of the community. A heated discussion with Dr. Greenhill. ' Can you lell us a little more about that? " i I ' ' : Ni52i.. ' r j r { ? fi- - ' ' Surgery Charles Reid Edwards, M.D. The tense quiet excitement of the Operating Room. After being associated with the Department of Sur- gery since his graduation in 1913 from the University of Maryland, Dr. C. Reid Edwards resigns this year. He has been head of the division for the past 7 years. When the move was made across the street there were approximately 2300 surgical admissions per year. Now as Dr. Edwards ' active teaching career nears an end the surgical admissions amount to about 6000. In step with school developments, the Department of Surgery is now in process of acquiring 5 new operating rooms on the seventh floor. Also, a recovery room will soon be established on the same floor to care for post opera- tive patients. These facilities, providing for a faster turnover of patients, will greatly aid in the teaching program. These additions plus an increase in personnel at the University and City Hospitals will provide for closer and more thorough training of students. Dr. Edwards, besides being a surgeon of the first rank, has always impressed us as a gentleman in the most profound sense of the word. He treats no one as an inferior and is always ready to listen courteously and interestedly to anyone who stops to talk with him. We salute the man who most closely fits the picture of the ideal doctor as we visualized him when we first decided to go into medicine. May his days of retire- ment be brightened by the knowledge that all of his former students gratefully acknowledge their debt to him for his instruction, his kindness and his inspira- tion. Dr. E. R.

Douglass, who has been affiliated with the Department of Obstetrics since his graduation forty- two years ago. and head of this department since 1938, is retiring this June. Since departing from his native Virginia he has become a devoted practitioner of his chosen field as well as one of his alma mater ' s most productive and renowned alumni. Within the past year he has authored papers on Dystocia. Primary Section and Obstetrics in General Practice. Perhaps the greatest tribute to the diligent efforts of him and his conferees is evidenced in the last annual report (through June 30, 1954) wherein the overall maternal mortality rate is slightly greater than one per thousand live births. This in a year during which more than four thousand obstetrics patients were ad- mitted to the University Hospital. Currently the de- partment is striving to effect a like reduction in the neonatal group; with figures as yet unavailable. Student contact with this department begins in the second year with introductory lectures, advances to direct dealings with patients in clinics, wards and de- livery rooms in the third year, and culminates with two hectic but stimulating weeks at Baltimore City Hospital whence the student turns deliverer. We wish Dr. Douglass the happy retirement he has so justly earned. It will be hard to fill his shoes with a physician of equal calibre. . . . and those urines by the score. Those admissions keep pouring in-City Hospitals. ' Sack rats. ' More and more blood pressures. Gynecology We had our first contact with this important phase of medicine in our third year with a fine series of lectures by Dr. Diehl. In our senior year we learned how to do a pelvic examination, to recognize the com- monly encountered diseases, and were reminded of the importance of a psychologically sound approach. Con- sideration for the patient was the keynote. The biopsy was stressed as the sine qua non in diagnosis of suspicious cervical lesions, and its technique was soon mastered. A unique system was employed whereby oncological lesions were sketched by a professional iUustrator, enabling us to note the changes much more accurately than with mere verbal descriptive terms. Dr. Hundley, Dr. Diggs, Dr. Diehl, Dr. Cornbrooks, the other visiting staff men, and a capable and willing resident staff instructed us well in an intricate and challenging field. J. Mason Hundley, Jr., M.A., M.D. Dr. Cornbrooks — " Here we have a 26-year-old woman complaining of dysmenorrhea. ' ' Dr. Prevost — " Here ' s how to do those biopsies.

EDWIN KNOWLES, JR., M.D. Died June 5, 1954 Sorely missed by all who knew him Ophthalmology Dealt a crushing blow by the death of Dr. Knowles last June, the Department of Ophthalmology has carried on its activities with a program of lectures and clinics. Ward rounds have been absent in the course this year, but a series of introductory lectures, given to the Junior class, and further lectures, offered to the Senior class, combined with a month in the Senior year working in the " Eye Clinic " have kept the schedule in full throttle. We, as a graduating class, express our sorrow at the loss of Dr. Knowles, and, further, we sincerely believe that the Department will continue its fine work of teaching a most complicated subject as it has done in the past. ' Can ' t you even read the big print? " " Don ' t move your eyes, sonny. " 72 J. Edmund Bradley, M.D. " Does it really sound like thunder, doe. " Pediatrics Without question one of the strongest departments in the clinical years, this division deserves our most hearty thanks for its down-to-earth approach to prac- tical Pediatrics. Every moment of the schedule is well accounted for and sprinkled with " gems " for daily office use. No one is concerned with the " one-in-a- million " case, but the instructors make sure we know what to do with Junior ' s brassy cough at 2 A.M. The clinic abounds with excellent material, especially those U.R.I. ' s and otitides we will see so much of in general practice. We learn how to handle the " kiddies " in the hospital, right down to the exact needle size for an I.V. Feeding formulae no longer baffle us. Frightened mothers are met with equanimity. In short, we feel as though we have learned how to handle ourselves where it will count outside the academic world. The esoteric has been left to those who will choose to take future residencies. Our reminiscences will include Dr. Bradley ' s warm and personal concern for each s tudent; Those twin dynamos, Dr. Finkelstein and Dr. Click; The ubiquitous Dr. Clemmens; and, finally, the fine resident staff, which was ever at our elbow. Drs. Click, McGrady, and Coffin in the clinic. Dr. Bradley and friend. " There must be heart sounds somewhere. " 74 Dr. Clemmens pointing out the features in well baby care.

Granted his retirement has resulted in a void that we all regard as the passing of an era, but the department is, nonetheless, colorful and distinctive. Combining teaching and enthusiasm, good fellowship and discipline, friendliness and respect. Der- matology was painlessly administered to us by " Pete and Vail " and their corps of able assistants in our third and fourth years with a wealth of clinical material and no small amount of squinting, feeling, and scraping (no questioning the patient!). What greater tribute than to say, " We left with a feeling of confidence. " 76 You mean, this can happen to me? " The staff in a lighter vein. 77 Roentgenology There is not a busier place in University Hospital on any given day than the X-ray Department. Behind all this teeming activity is an efficient organization headed by Dr. John M. Dennis. His responsibility, along with his assistants — -Drs. Davidson, Boudreau, Startzman, and others — is to read and interpret the thousands of roentgenograms taken each year and to perform the myriads of contrast studies done each day. It is indeed a difficult task and a tribute to those who have done it so well. Anesthesiology Dr. Davidson at the iluoroscope. Still in its comparative infancy as a full-fledged department, Anesthesiology, ably led by Dr. Robert B. Dodd, assisted by Dr. Paul R. Hackett, is rapidly com- ing into its own as an integral part of our medical training. Lectures and demonstrations of anesthetics and their techniques of administration are given to both Juniors and Seniors. Future plans include scheduled student clerkships and fully certified resident training in this — one of our busiest divisions. 78 Dr. IlackctI — " This is really a snap once you know how. " ' A-- ' ■ A. ORGANIZATIONS Alpha Omega Alpha " To be worthy to serve the suffering " — our motto, service well to illustrate the guidiiif light under which our members carry the standard of Alpha Omega Alpha. Installed at Maryland in 1949. the organization started out with fourteen faculty members, five graduates, and twelve seniors. AOA. Beta of Maryland, has grown in stature and prominence through the efforts of student and faculty alike. Today, two annual banquets, a spring lecture, a student presentation of original work are among the activities of AOA. Future plans will expand greatly on that program as the chapter grows. One of the aims of the organization is to bring its existence to the minds of fresh men and sophomores as a goal to be reached in the later years of their medical school life. Is scholarship the sole means of qualifica- tion? By all means it is not. AOA has set forth, as its requisites, professional aptitude, intellectual grasp, moral integrity, and a hope for the future — the promise of subsequent leadership and accomplishment. Alpha Omega Alpha, under the able faculty guidance of Dr. Milton S. Sacks, and Dr. J. Edmund Bradley, has moved ahead this year as a strong influence in school affairs. The March lecture by Dr. Charles Huf- nagel. Professor of Surgery at Georgetown, was a high- light of the year. Programs such as these provide the students with the knowledge of new methods and trends in medicine, and a stimulus to all to make great strides of their own in future years.

Edmund Bradley With its full complement of sixteen senior and five junior students plus a fine group of faculty members, all distinguished in their respective fields, Alpha Omega Alpha can boast an honored place in the annals of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. One of its true aims is to make the members of the freshman and sophomore classes cognizant of its presence and influence in our school so that they may use this knowl- edge as a goal in governing their academic lives, not as something to attain by grades alone, but as some- thing to raise their personal standards and intensify their striving to become competent physicians. Another of the aims of Alpha Omega Alpha is to bring out in student and faculty alike an interest in research and clinical investigation, the core of medical progress. This interest may direct itself in original projects on various fields in the clinical or basic sciences; as thorough surveys of the results and con- clusions about their own work and that of others; or in just a vital eagerness to learn in the present and to keep learning in the post-graduate years to stay abreast of the never-ending advances in Medicine, which today seem almost daily occurrences. If merely these aims are accomplished, AOA has served a real and vital purpose. 81 Phi Delta Epsilon In its forty-ninth year at our School of Medicine, the Delta Epsilon chapter is proud of its respected position in the national fraternity, and of its vital place on the Baltimore campus. Over thirty alumni of the fraternity are on the school faculty. Many members of the chapter have been honored by election to Alpha Omega Alpha, and many of the top offices in the student government, and SAMA are held by " Phi D E ' s. " The wide range of social activities — the smokers, the many parties, the New Year ' s party, the pre-dance cocktail parties, the 4th District Conclave at the Southern, and the Senior Farewell dinner-dance at the Emerson — was balanced by the more academic side of the fraternity. Scientific meetings, with lectures by a great array of local savants, were climaxed this year by the annual Phi Delta Epsilon Lectureship by Dr. Hayes Martin of Memorial Hospital in New York City. With its center at 2201 Callow Avenue, and strongly supported by a large Graduate Club, and having reacti- vated its Ladies Auxiliary, the fraternity heads to greater accomplishments. Our brothers in 1955 graduate and drift awa . but they will alwavs be a part of Phi Delta Epsilon. fl " V .U .r f I Sitting: Kappelman, Sax, Pollack, Sterling, Stovin, Dvorine, Yousem, Plumb, Harris.

" 83 Phi Beta Pi Part of an active national organization numbering among its members many beloved and renowned names in the medical profession, the Zeta chapter of Phi Beta Pi has grown fast, especially since its reactivation at Maryland in 1947, and is now bigger and better than ever. Under the guidance of Archon, Joseph McLaughlin, and his capable assistants, this year ' s program started out with an " open house " at t he beginning of the first semester. Following this, an active schedule of smokers and seminars was undertaken, with guest speakers such as, Dr. Woodward, Dr. Bradley, Dr. Cowley, Dr. Figge, Dr. Krahl, and Dr. Krantz. Again outstanding this year was the annual banquet and dance at the Stafford Hotel where new members were initiated and those present were treated to a talk by Dr. Louis A. M. Krause. In addition, and on the lighter side, many parties and outings were held on frequent occasions. It was a great year for the Phi Betes, with greater ones in the offing. 9 l J R, Koons J. McCowan V.

Making full use of its new quarters, the fraternity was host at rush parties, shrimp feasts, and a barn dance. The members filled the house with straw, pumpkins, scarecrows, and " pizza pies " for a big Hallowe ' en party. Some of the members spent the New Year in Philadelphia for the national convention. In a more serious vein, the fraternity prepared a study guide in Anatomy for the freshmen, and, also, presented a demonstration on hypnosis by Dr. Jacob Conn of the Phipps Clinic.

Resurrected last fall after a lapse of several years, the dul) met in the Psychiatric Institute. As for future plans — the use of faculty members to participate in the discussions with practical viewpoints applied to the Catholic doctrine presented. Successful in its first year, the clnh looks ahead to further success in its coming years. 86 Student American Medical Association Left to right: George Abeshouse, Virginia Truilt, Norman Lavy, With two-thirds of the student body as members, SAMA has concluded a highly active year. A series of medical motion pictures, a life insurance plan — which many members took advantage of — designed for the medical student, pre-medical counseling — a program presented to the Johns Hopkins Undergraduate Biology Club, and an article about our school, published in one issue of the SAMA Journal helped round out a busy agenda. An internship questionnaire was sent out, and the returns were valuable to all seniors about to gradu- ate. The first steps were taken to establish a relation- ship between SAMA and the State Medical Society. The chapter has allied itself with the Maryland Society for Medical Research. Finally, a delegate from Maryland attended the national SAMA convention in Chicago. Truly, this has been a great year for a relatively new society at Maryland. 87 88 Student Lounge " This one may take all of our four years. " The chow line plus a friend.

Whitehurst, Vice Chairman of the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland: the members of the graduating class of 1955 with pride and gratitude dedicate to you this yearbook, the looking glass upon which you will find reflected achievements, character growth and poignant memories of many young women. In your capacity as the only woman member of the Board of Regents, you have served our school, as you are serving women throughout the world, with keen judg- ment, ability and honesty. Because your interest in the nursing profession, its growth and progress, has known no limits, the development of the University of Maryland School of Nursing has been marked with fruitful achievement. Graduate professional nurses throughout the state of Maryland have been benefited for many years by your measures to raise economic and social standards for women. We, as student nurses, were privileged to see plans for a new school of nursing realized because our facuUy again found you to be a spokeswoman for the expression of our needs. The Mrs. John L. Whitehurst annual award to the senior student manifesting the greatest degree of executive ability has provided a further stimulus for future leaders in nursing. As a forceful participant in organizations, such as the World Health Assembly and Civil Defense Commission, founded to promote understanding and cooperation among all peoples, you have proven yourself as a discriminating analyst of problems and a woman undeterred, possessed with insight and social conscience. Look, therefore, on this transcript of merit which we present for times ' test — to you . . . Mrs. John L. Whitehurst. 95 . E - Florence M. Gipe, R.N., Ed.D., Dean Dean Florence M. Gipe, Dean of the School of Nursin.g of the University of Mary- land As the beams of light shed from the lamp of the great nurse, Florence Nightingale, inspire and beckon to young women, so will the efforts, foresight and perseverance of Dean Gipe guide our footsteps in nursing. Realizing that formal education must be an integral part of the background of the professional woman. Dean Gipe has zealously met the challenge of rapid advancement in nursing trends. The curriculum of the University of Maryland School of Nursing has been advanced in nine years, through the efforts of Dean Gipe, to include experience and education in all major nursing areas, including psychiatry, tuberculosis nursing, and public health nursing. The school holds an enviable position among University schools of nursing. With emphasis upon treatment of the " whole person " in illness, Dean Gipe has inter- woven laboratory facilities, library research areas, and intelligent patient care in the hospital, clinic and home to meet the needs of the sick emotionally, spiritually and physically. Dean Gipe believes that the honor to serve mankind implies responsibility — to exer- cise convictions with courage, to protect the rights of others, and to seek truth in all endeavors thru research and education. These are the high ideals of today ' s nurse set down by an inspiring leader — Dean Florence M. Gipe. 96 TO THE GRADUATES OF THE 1955 CLASS OF THE SCHOOL OF NURSING On our beautiful College Park Campus at the early dawn of another graduation day, we find singing birds; Tiolets and buttercups in their leafy green beds; sweet spice flowers, dogwood and roses gazing hearenward. Young and old, this day, will experience a sense of well-being in this aesthetic enriro- went as the breath of the wana Jane day makes the obserrer cogniEant of something unusual about to occur. The most oonoeraed of the spectators, in this glorious setting, obviously, will be the faculty of the school from which the individual steps fortli to take his or her place nationally or internationally. The Faculty of the School of Nursing are proud to place the names of the 1955 Class of the School of Nursing on the roster of its graduates. You, as members of this group, have given evidence that you are self-directed and self-disciplined, two of the most important criteria of any profession. In your work you have experienced pain and pleasure; gains and reverses. Above all, you have evidenced that you possess the mental and physical fibre necessary to be a success in your chosen work. As a final message to you in the words of the famous John Wesley, we charge you: Do all the good you can By all the means you can In all the ways you can In all the places you can At all the times you can To all the people you can As long as ever you can. John Wesley, His Rule c TTlu-U-m kZ L a-il Florence Meda Gipe, R.N., Ed.D. Dean, School of Nursing Hospital Administration George H. Buck, Ph.B. Director of University Hospital Our hospital, like any other, could not operate with- out the constant direction of an efficient administration. Too often, this aspect of the hospital is forgotten or merely taken for granted. We wish to acknowledge the tireless efforts of t he administrative staff as a major in- tegral part of our well functioning hospital. Foresighted and cooperative, our directors have developed a working system that accommodates the rapid advancement of our ever expanding hospital. Every phase of our institution has been studied and programs have been introduced which lend a maximum efficiency. Considerable time and effort is expended to maintain our hospital on its present level of high stand- ard. In the interest of education and improved administra- tion, the staff includes administrative residents; this ad- vantage promises added thoroughness and efficiency.

Strangely enough, Miss Conley is a University of Maryland graduate from the start of her career to the present time. Upon completion of her nursing education at the University of Mary- land School of Nursing, Miss Conley endeavored still farther in the field of her nursing education. Before entering the University of Maryland, College Park, Miss Conley ' s main interests centered around Pediatric nursing. After this experience she completed her studies at College Park and thus obtained her Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees. Kathryn Wohlsen, A.B., R.N., M.A. Assistant Professor, Community Nursing and Assistant to the Dean Mrs. Wohlsen will long be remembered by all of us as an asset to any nursing school ' s administration. She is not only interested in our nursing education, but also extends her interests to us as individuals. Above all we will never forget Mrs. Wohlsen ' s un- tiring efforts in guiding our staff as advisor of the yearbook. Most of her education was acquired at Western Reserve Uni- versity, where she received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Nursing degrees. In the meantime Mrs. Wohlsen obtained her Master of Arts from Columbia University and is now serving the University of Maryland, School of Nursing. Margaret Hayes, R.N., M.S. Assistant Professor and Advisor of Student Affairs College Park Division Even though Miss Hayes may be quite soft spoken in her way, she is a person who has never ceased to impress us as one who is interested in all of our needs in our nursing education. Miss Hayes is better known to the girls who attended classes on the College P ark campus, but has also maintained her stand- ards with the students at the Baltimore division of the University. She began her nursing education in Illinois, but journeyed on to Vanderbilt where she received her Bachelor of Science degree. Acclaimed by Catholic University, Miss Hayes then obtained her Master of Science degree and has enlightened many of our students. 99 Martha Baer, R.N., B.S.

Today . . . 102 Our Story The cap worn by the graduate nurses of the University of Maryland School of Nursing has been outstanding in many ways. It is unique in shape, design and history. On December 15, 1889, Miss Louisa Parsons came to the University with the goal of forming a school of nursing. Miss Parsons was born and reared in England and studied under Florence Nightingale at the St. Thomas Hospital in London, from which she graduated in 1880. The cap which was in her possession was designed by Miss Nightingale and was to be used for the first nursing school Miss Parsons founded in the New World. For ten years the cap, fashioned of point d ' esprit lace was worn by both student and graduate nurses. In 1901 the student cap was designed by Miss Katherine Taylor, a graduate of the Philadelphia General Hospital. This cap is a familiar sight in clinical areas of instruction today. Student nurses at that time were required to make their own uniforms. In 1892 the blue and white striped uniforms were introduced. The course of training at that time was two years for the classes. The nurses worked twelve hours a day. In 1905, the graduating class published a yearbook, which was only for the nursing school. In 1907, the first State Board examinations were held for state registration. This was a great step forward toward improved educational standards in the field of nursing. The history of the LIniversity of Maryland School of Nursing goes on to include many more changes. By 1924 a five year program leading to a Bach- elor of Science degree for nurses was in progress. Through the years the curriculum has been strengthened to include such affiliations as Psychiatry and Public Health. Whether large or small, each change which has taken place has been indicative of the evolution and growth of the field of nursing as a whole. Nursing today stands as a profession. Nursing is not only an art, but a science as well. Today the pendulum of change swings more and more toward higher education; the nurse of tomorrow will have not only the benefit of the years of clinical experience behind her, but also a more thorough scientific knowledge. Student Government Association Student Government Officers: Left to Right: Janet Burton, Treasurer; Claudette Kautz, Secretary; Niki Nations, Presi- dent; Ingrid Davenport, First Vice-President; Sue Water- man, Second Vice-President. Early in the Spring of 1954 the Student Government elections were held, in which the students elected officers of the organization. In April, the students were represented at the National Student Nurses ' Convention in Chicago by the newly elected president and the president of the intermediate class. Social activities sponsored during the year included a variety of monthly parties such as the Homecoming Dance, Pajama Party, and Hobo party. Sports such as skating, bowling and basketball have been popular ac- tivities also provided. During this administration, the task of completing the clarification and revisions of the constitution and by-laws was undertaken. Meetings have included more than business with guest speakers who have provided educational and recreational subjects for discussion. We believe that as a student body we have a privilege of free people in our organization. We have attempted to channel our interests along worthwhile and profitable activities which have been of valuable learning experi- ence as each of us functions in our own self-government.

Every phase of our clinical experience was relived as we covered each area. Working side by side with the staff was Mrs. Katherine Wohlsen, our yearbook advisor, who guided us through the rough spots and at whose home the editors convened weekly to discuss progress. The close cooperation between the staff members and the editors will long be remembered. It was the combined talents of these girls that enabled us to present the yearbook with a feeling of pride in our achievement. Diamondback This year it was decided to try to bring to the College Park campus an awareness of the activities on our Baltimore cam- pus. In order to accomplish this we submitted articles to be published weekly in the Diamondback. These articles included a variety of themes, such as the basketball team, the Glee Club, the anniversary of the hos- pital, and the recognition of the Baltimore campus as the nucleus from which the rest of the University of Maryland expanded. These links helped to bridge the miles between Baltimore and College Park. Slaflf Members: Seated: Pat Bean. Marlene Mules, Sue France, Ann Norfolk.

Sincere and capable, she inspires the con- fidence and trust of her patients and will always be held dear in the hearts of her classmates. In her few free hours she attempts to catch up on her long overdue correspondence and somehow manages to play pinochele between phone calls. Shirley has always shown enthusiasm in extracurricular activi- ties as was evidenced in the minstrel show and her support of the basketball team. With interests in psychiatric and pediatric nursing, we wish her luck and success for the future. Elizabeth Harris February, 1955 This auburn haired gal with her sunny smile and pleasing ways is loved by all who know her. After having taken a pre-nursing course during her high school days, she decided definitely upon the nursing profession. This choice proved to be a wise one; she has helped spread the ray of hope, support and kindness to her patients. Beth spends her spare time supporting our basketball team, horseback riding, baking " colorie pushers " for her hungry pals at the dorm, and attempting to play Gershwin ' s Rhapsody in Blue. Her future plans include working with general surgical and pediatric patients and a B. S. in nursing. Bj ' s ih| iH H ■ ff% % ft 1 h V 9 ■p 107 Gladys Ruth Lassiter February, 1955 Three years ago. Atlanta. Georgia, loaned us her finest, com- plete with soft accent, coffee pot, and a sincere interest in people. We adopted her, and we know her as Pokey. One can always depend on her to do and say the properly conventional thing, but in a deliciously personalized manner. Her work, always done with confidence and sincere enthusiasm, has won her the admira- tion and respect of her patients and the staff. Poke enjoyed all phases of nursing and yet has not decided on a specialty. Wherever she goes, we wish only the best for our southern girl. Mary Moiiiodis February, 1955 Our Mar . although small in stature, packs a mighty wallop not only to the eye, but to the back as well. Not being the shy type, Mary makes friends quickly, as is evidenced by the fondness her patients have for her. Her merry laughter and sincere ways will always be remembered. In her free time she can be found at Memorial Stadium, since she is an avid Oriole fan. She enjoys reading, going to the movies, or taking off for home for some of that delicious Greek cooking. The accident room was much to her liking and fortunate will be the hospital which obtains her services. June Maudiiie Moiitgoiuery February, 1955 Maudine will always be remembered for her long brown locks and quiet ways, occasionally interrupted by a witty comment. Our conscientious classmate spent long hours and worked hard for her patients, but was repaid many fold by the satisfaction she received knowing that they were comfortable and resting with an assurance of her concern for them. She is always ready to lend a comforting hand and offer a sympathetic word. In her off duty hours you can find her writing a letter home, eating candy, or attempting to improve her driving skill. Maudine liked Pediatric nursing and her future plans include further study in this field. 108 Frances Sandra Nathanson February, 1955 This brownett of medium height has a gay word and a charm- ing smile for everyone. An excellent nurse, who is well liked by her patients and co- workers, you can always rely on Fran when the going gets rough. Outstanding in the field of art, she has made many contribu- tions along this line to the school. Her efforts and talents were displayed on a mural done for the Pediatric department. As a member of the Maryland Student Nurses Association, she worked diligently with the other students. Her future plans are uncertain but we know nursing will play a major role. Anita Roben February, 1955 This pert blond with her round, smiling face can always be found spreading cheer throughout the wards. Her sympathetic attitude has endeared her to her patients. Since probie days, Anita has excelled scholastically, although she sets the " curve " for our class, we love her dearly. Anita spends a good deal of her free time in Cleveland, Ohio, where she will probably take permanent residence after gradua- tion. In her leisure time she knits little things for her godchild, at- tends the cinema or roots for the Orioles. Although undecided in her chosen field, we wish Anita all the luck in the world with whatever she undertakes. Abby Schiff February, 1955 Tall, slender, dark completion, blessed with a pleasing dis- position and a wonderful personality, our Abby always has a cheery word for everyone. Her enthusiastic ways will long endear her to her patients. Although there have been discouraging times for all of us, it can be sincerely said that Abby has enjoyed every aspect of nursing. She has been a wonderful friend to confide in and to encourage us when the going got rough. She will long be remembered for having presented her talents in the minstrel shows. Abby has a bright future before her and we know she will be a credit to the nursing profession. 109 Betty Lee Sniithson February, 1955 Slender and blonde uur Betty is endowed with grace and poise. She was not only sympathetic concerning the welfare of her pa- tients, but she was a good listener to the troubles of her class- mates as well. She was one of the few who did not have to ponder over books for long hours at night, as she has done good work scholastically in all phases of her nursing. These are only a few of her outstanding characteristics. Betty enjoys sports, can frequently be seen at Memorial Sta- dium and also enjoys reading and movies. Professionally. Betty favors Obstetric Nursing, but as yet the future is undecided. Alice Lynne Ahniiity This is the gal who gets things done . . . eventually. Alice sets bet dial at one speed and neither man nor incident can change the rate. She is always the first to freely admit this. Her laughter ringing out five mintues after the punch line of the joke indicates that Alice has " caught on " . Although many tricks have been played on this good humored lass, she ' s always able to see the funny side of everything and enjoys playing a few jokes of her own. Besides being fun loving, she often spends time in compos- ing poems. Alice takes great pride in the fact that she tries to make good nurses out of our doctors. As a capable nurse herself, she is well qualified to efficiently run her ward. Josephine Louise Arp Josie, a delightfully, mischievous personality, well hidden be- neath a little girl look is most often seen looking for something amidst a conglomeration of clothes, books and jewelry. I ' ncon- cerned, she always manages to emerge with that neat, casual appearance. Always ready for a good time. Josie thrives on a variety of pastimes which include enjoying the classics and mod- ern art, sailing, swimming, playing tennis and especially eating " pizza pie " . Working with Josie never proves to be monotonous for she has a knack of lessening the routine. Active in class functions, she has served on numerous coininittees. participated in a variety of activity and has offered many creative ideas for our social calendar. 110 Mary L. Benevicz B. S. in Nursing " Hey Gang " you ' ll never guess what happened! " and you never will because " Mare " is famous for her unusual experiences. Mary entered the University of Maryland after graduation from the Institute of Notre Dame. A native Baltimoran. Mary pos- sesses one of the most typical Baltimore accents in the city. Mary ' s warm friendly manner has succeeded in making her a favorite with patients and classmates. Her special interests in- clude amateur psychoanalysis, jet planes, fireplaces, water skiing and her two shadows. Mary aspires to a graduate course in Anesthesiology, but she still harbors thoughts of Psychiatric nursing and Obstetrical edu- cation. Whatever Mary chooses, she will meet with only success. Georgia Harriett Brown B S. in Nursing A click of a lever — a flash of light — that ' s " Geeb " with her trusty camera. A leading member of the Cumberland Block, she is best known as photographer and Mr. Fix-it. She owns one of the most un- usual closets in school. It contains not only clothes and cosmetics but a well stocked supply of implements designed to unravel any problem. Aside from her mechanical and photographic skills, she pos- sesses a friendly personality. She ' s always ready with a trick but can good naturedly take a joke as well as instigate it. " Geeb " has not chosen a nursing specialty but her skills are well adapted to any phase of the profession. Miriam Dolores Brown Bunny, our blonde haired, blue eyed classmate, is the gal who always has the solution to the problem, no matter whose problem it may be. If she can ' t find time to sympathize, out comes on e of her spontaneous quips — silence (from surprise) — laughter — problem forgotten ! With these characteristics in play. Bunny has developed into one of our most conscientious nurses, with faith in God as her guide. In her off duty hours, Bunny may be found playing basketball, knitting, crocheting, playing pinochle, or with her " finger in any pie that may be cooking " . Plans following graduation include completing work on her B.S. degree. Ill Shirley Anne Bro vn B.S. in Nursing If you ever see a girl with a sparkling personality, pleasing smile and naturally curly hair, that ' s our Shirl. A daydodger while at College Park. Shirl found it a new ex- perience living in the dorm here in Baltimore. Shirl ' s flashy Ford is the pride of our class. She is an excellent driver and this ability has been generously shared with her class- mates. Shirl is interested in music and she is noted for her col- lection of records. In whatever field Shirl may choose to work, we know she will be a success for she possesses all the qualities of a good nurse. Janet Mae Burton Janet is one gal who has the ability to laugh at her problems. You rarely see this attractive blonde glum. Where would the Baptist Student Union be without her? Being an active member in this group and the Bible study group here at school, has occupied much of Janet ' s time, but it took nothing from her nursing education. In fact, it adds that " something special " that makes a more understanding nurse. Besides the Baptist Student Union, Janet spends her time reading, trying to knit and sleeping. Though many things have caught her interest, Janet has found a fascination in Obstetrics. When we gaze into our crystal ball, we see her in a position in the Obstetrical department. Penelope Nace Childress " Early to bed and early to rise makes a gal healthy, wealthy and wise " . True it is of this small, trim, curly-haired brunette, one of our happily married girls, ( ' abby entered the picture years back, and the two tied the knot in June. 1%4. Although Pen retires early, she doesn ' t miss much and participates in many and varied activities, such as acting as our house committee rep- resentative, typing pages for the yearbook, sewing and knitting socks for " hubby " . She really adds to a good time but knows when to get down to business — a good influence on all of us. Pen. a well-liked student, has develo])e(i into a most capable nurse and was ccrtainlv ;iii asset to our class. 112 Judith Anne Conroy B. S. in Nursing Who walks in immaculately groomed, makes a few dry remarks, and asks. " How do you feel about this? " — yes, it ' s our Judy. There ' s never a dull moment for she can play anything on the piano, or dash off a stick figure cartoon for " the gang " . Judy qualified well as social chairman of the senior class, and in 1954 won the title of Homecoming Queen of the nursing school. The University of Maryland attracted Judy from Hamden, Connecticut, but Cape Code and New York City still rate first for vacations. Judy will probably do further study in Psychiatric Nursing. We know that she ' ll be successful in any field of nursing she selects. Margaret Boyes Coulter " Watch out. Peggy is on the rampage! " The reason may be one of many: great enthusiasm over a new idea, a mistake in her knitting, no one showing up for basketball practice, a straight week of relief, no pinochle partner, or no specialing job for the weekend. Peg, being very patriotic, loves to talk about her home state, " Good Old Tennessee " . Tall with dark hair and eyes, she enjoys singing and can keep everyone amused with her many moods and facial expressions. Whether or not Tennessee reclaims Peggy, her eagerness to learn and her abilities that have been displayed will make any location proud to claim her nursing services. Frances Eloise Creek Fran may claim the title of our " songbird from the mountains ' . ' Her vocal talents are an asset to any singing group. She is a quiet gal with just a touch of that mischief that adds spice to her surroundings. Her wonderful sense of humor and infectious laughter have forced a smile to the lips of more than one glum classmate. Aside from this, Fran has domestic talents which are frequently relied upon by her friends when the hunger pangs hit. In her spare time she enjoys long walks, especially if there is snow on the ground, movies or cutting up with the gang. As a nurse, she is reliable and efficient with that certain something that befriends all with whom she comes in contact. 113 lugrid Davenport This tall, slender brunette calls New Jersey her home but has spent her last three years here in Maryland earning for herself a coveted R.N. Although she appears quiet and reserved to those who know her, Ingrid is alive with fun and an active imagination. Ingrid ' s everlasting patience and easy going personality have been put to many hard tests but have never failed to come out on top. She has enjoyed all her nursing experiences, but her work on 4B was the best. Off duty, Ingrid spends a good deal of her time in her room asleep. She has served her Alma Mater faithfully by being first vice-president of the Student Government Association and former Glee Club secretary. Jane Catherine Eisenhauer B. S. in Nursing ■Jane is small in stature, but every inch is filled with personality and fun. Her hazel eyes, blonde hair and sparkling smile will always be additions to her career no matter what field she chooses. Living practically next door to the campus at College Park, her student da)s were well filled with college activities. Not only was the campus a place for study, but it also provided the back- ground for a college romance. Jane ' s ingenuity and conscientiousness will be assets anywhere. Lucky will be the hospital that will have access to her endless efforts for excellent nursing care. Katherine Sheldon Ferrell Kven-tempered and understanding. Kathy won respect among her patients, co-workers and fellow students as a good example of what a nurse really should he. She will always be remembered for her quick, darting movements at the bedside and lu r love for the children in Pediatrics. Off duty, Kathy will always be remembered for her ceaseless chatter, her enthused facial expressions, her love for gab sessions late in the night and those occasions when Mrs. Alexander just couhhi t understand whv there was so mucli laughter in room 644. Kathy took an active part in the Hililc study meetings at school. The future looks bright for K;ill) with a luirsing career in Pediatrics. 114 Nancy Ann Gocke B. S. in Nursing Brown hair, blue eyes and a pleasant smile for everyone — that ' s Nancy. She comes to us from West Virginia and is sure there is no place like it. Nan spent two years at the University of West Virginia and managed to take time out for a fabulous summer traveling in Europe. Nan ' s dynamic personality and good looks helped West Virginia decide to crown her Queen Silvia XVII at their Mountain State Forest Festival in Elkins in 1953. A day off frequently found Nan on her way to the beach. Equip- ped with her varied abilities and radiating personality, we predict the very best for our mountaineer. Antoinette Grzyniala Gonzales Toni, as she is known to us, is a member of our charmed circle of happily married girls. Aside from acquiring a husband, she has acquired a keen insight into her patients ' needs and has possessed the ability to adequately meet these needs. Toni is good- natured and gets a kick out of helping others, especially her pa- tients, with anything that needs to be done. During her leisure moments, Toni likes to sew, knit and write to Louis, who is serv- ing his country overseas. In our crystal ball we see Toni as a good nurse, wife and mother; and we wish her all the good things that she so richly deserves. Gloria Santilli Hawley Gloria is a tall, slim package of surprises who rates as a capable and efficient nurse. She may be found in the midst of practically all of our school activities always with the same enthusiasm. The ability to command that large vocabulary of hers and the knack of expressing herself, regardless of the situation, is always a source of amazement to the rest of us. She contributed greatly to the yearbook with her tireless efforts as art editor and general " jack of all trades " . Gloria surprised us all when she became the bride of " Chan " Hawley after a whirlwind courtship this year. As for the future, Obstetrics will claim this raven haired gal, and we are sure that she will be a credit to the department. 115 Georgia Lois Helniick B. S. in Nursing First you hear laughter, then you see a group of happy girls, and you can be sure Jo will be in the middle of the fun. This Western Maryland girl has kept all her associates in high spirits throughout her pre-nursing and training days. Jo enjoys good music, reading and thinking up rare food com- binations for bedtime snacks. Her unusual ability to drive any- thing on wheels is a talent often relied upon by her classmates. Jo ' s academic average will match the best and yet she finds time to be guardian of our class treasury. Her ability to put everyone at ease will be long remembered by all of us. George Anna Hinely " Georgie " , a conscientious, well-liked member of our class can frequently be heard saying, " Now you ' re sure it ' s all right with you? " She is constantly on the go and always willing to help someone with some project, especially on a night before an exam. Excitement or confusion is usually expressed by a mixture or jumbling of words. Always ready for a good time, she can usually be found where there is a group clowning around. Being class president for the past two years has taken up a good deal of her time; however, she has found time for basketball, selling popcorn, yearbook and dance preparations. Georgie, a good student and a good nurse, has certainly been an asset to our class. Ruth Elizabeth Jacobs B. S. in Nursing Ruth, a bundle of vivacity, good nature and friendliness, comes to us from the highlands of Western Mar land. She did shake off the magnetism of her western home long enough to spend two years at College Park before joining us in Baltimore. Ruth enjovs ail things musical. pla ing the clarinet in the L niver.«it Band and often entertaining us with her excellent piano playing. An out- standing student and a capable nurse in any area. Ruth finds Ob- stetrics rating high in her pnifessional plans. Thinking of Ruth we will remember blue eyes, a pixie smile and a gay " Hi " for everyone. Good luck to Frostburg ' s finest! llf) Claudette Ann Kautz Claudie is one of the mighty mites of our class. Whenever there is work to be done or fun to be had, you can bet your life she is somewhere in the vicinity. As popular with her patients as she is with her classmates, Claudie is a good all around nurse. She was voted our " most sympathetic and understanding nurse " at the close of our first year in nursing. Throughout her exper- ience, she has proven herself worthy of such an award. Practically all of Claudie ' s days off are spent in Annapolis. She can always manage to slip homeward about once a week. Besides her fine contributions to nursing, Claudie has served the class as Student Government representative and the school as secretary of the Student Government Association. - s- Gladys Faye Kiuua A kind word and a friendly smile is Glady ' s warm appeal. Al- ways ready with a helping hand, she is well-liked and respected by her classmates as well as by her patients. Being trim and neat is second nature to Gladys who dislikes a disheveled appearance. As efficient as she is neat, she has proven to be a very capable and conscientious nurse who is able to render the best of nursing care to her patients. During non-working hours, Gladys likes to go for long walks. It was while she was taking one of these walks that she found " Hobo, the turtle " , a figure now well known to her friends. Her quiet friendliness is sure to secure a happy future for this little lady. Jeauniiie Ann Lanhani B. S. in Nursing Jeannine might be called the traveler of our class for she has lived in many sections of the country. However, West Virginia still holds the blue ribbon for " Lannie " . She attended the Uni- versity of West Virginia; then her family moved to Kensington, Maryland, and Jeannine transferred to the University of Mary- land. Her favorite expression is " 1 really flipped " . When we hear these three words, we know that " Lannie " has something unusual to tell us. Jeannine will probably choose Psychiatric Nursing after grad- uation. We wish her success and happiness in any field of nursing she selects. b 117 Audrey Ann Layman With dabs and dabs of freckles, short hair, blue eyes and a turned up nose. Aud is best described as " cute " . Her patient ' s day is greatly enhanced by her abundant humor and sunny grin. Despite this light, care free appearance, Aud is a deep thinking, conscientious nurse. She is always ready and willing to tell you of the wonders of Walkersville if you ask, in fact, even if you don ' t ask. Whenever you find a gang, you can bet your life Audrey is among them, whether it is participating in sports, play- ing pinochle, or just clowning around. Aud is forever popping up with new ideas for just anything imaginable. Her enthusiasm and good will are among her greatest assets. Virginia Dolores Lichok Ginny is a cute, light brown haired girl who stands only five feet tall in her stocking feet. Small in stature, but mighty in spirit, she is a likeable, witty personality with a dry sense of humor that keeps everybody in stitches. Always telling tall tales, Ginny keeps her classmates guessing. Since she gets things done well and in nothing flat, patients and co-workers look forward to seeing her on duty. She is extremely fond of pretzels; and. being a good mixer, she enthusiastically joins in the various fads passing through the nurses ' home, such as knitting and playing pinochle. However, her favorite fad is collecting stuffed animals and giving them names like " Brunhilde Schultz " . Success will follow wherever Ginny goes in the future, in the nursing profession and in life. Frances Diane McBain So serious but yet so gay, best describes Fran with her laugh- ing eyes and gay appearance. Despite this appearance, her ability as a nurse and her precise decisions and actions are nurtured by long, deep thought. When voices are heard ringing throughout the nurses ' home, you can bet there is a " chorus " in Fran ' s room, the good time being accentuated by one of her " spontaneous dances " . After this comes a game of pinochle or a suggestion from Fran to take a ride in the " Plymouth " with a snack being the main objective. Fran, always ready to lend a helping hand in any class or school activity, worked hard as literary editor of the yearbook. 118 Susan Denise McCaw B. S. in Nursing " Five foot two, eyes of blue " — that ' s our Sue, a sincere friend and a devoted nurse. " Magoo " as she is more affectionately know, came to College Park from Haddonfield, New Jersey. Sue ' s untiring efforts as co-editor of " Terrae Mariae Medicus " will long be remembered by the senior class. As for special interests, just name one activity and Sue enjoys it! She will always hold a warm spot in her heart for College Park, Sunrise Beach, the sophomore class of the School of Medi- cine and her two shadows. Whatever field of nursing Sue may choose, the future will hold only success and happiness for her. iT f Patricia Lee Mullican " Well, I thought I ' d get this done tonight, but I really want to see that movie. " That ' s Pat! Despite her procrastination, she does get things done and in the right way; she reasons everything out well before she acts. Pert and cute, with light brown hair, soft brown eyes and just a touch of sophistication, Pat is noted for her quick, dry wit and " just finished dressing " appearance. Most of her time being spent in being a good nurse and student, she has also spent much time in helping with class activities, knitting, playing pinochle, going to the movies, playing basket- ball, roughing it up with the girls, or just plain catching a few extra winks. Niki Lenora Nations B. S. in Nursing " The meeting will please come to order, " are the words most quoted by well-versed Niki. She had the tremendous task of being Student Government president in our senior year. An individual in every aspect, life will never get dull or monotonous for Niki. She always comes through with a unique idea which adds interest to almost anything. Forever seeking new friends and different things to do, Niki keeps up with the current trends in literature, music and fashion, plus all general information with little effort at all. Backed by sound knowledge, poised and ever ready for any situation, she is a fine nurse. To her delight she will join her family in Germany upon graduation and will take the opportunity to demonstrate her nursing abilities abroad. 119 Betty Lucille Neilsoii A friendly face accentuated by a warm, brown color combina- tion of hair and eyes, a slim figure and just a slight southern accent — who else could it be but Betty? As she states, she lives down by the Patuxent " Rivah " . One of her many assets is her everlasting ability to get along with people. Possessing an appeal- ing manner and seldom showing any signs of temper or dis- pleasure, Betty is liked by everyone. In her bureau drawers one can find all sorts of vitamin pills. Betty is always on a gain weight diet! Her performance as a nurse is tops — no wonder, with months and months of experience on 4D! Her associates find it difficult to be depressed since her gay, unaffected personality seems to break the spell. Nell le rrace Pard ew If you should happen to walk into a hospital and see an attrac- tive, blond, blue-eyed nurse with the cutest dimpled smile you have ever seen, that ' s Nell. No matter what front she is holding down, you can bet everything will be well under control. Nell, a versatile and good student, has been a very active and important member of our class. She was kept busy as president of our freshman class and vice-president of our senior class, besides participating in basketball and many other activities. Always busy, Nell doesn ' t like to waste time, but doesn ' t consider a good game of pinochle " wasting time " . A typical wholesome American girl. Nell certainly will make a great contribution to any field she might decide to enter. Nancy Parsons Pickett Charming is the adjective most used to describe Nan. She used just this characteristic plus many otlier attributes to capture the Queen ' s crown at the nurses " annual Homecoming Dance in 1953 and also to capture her handsome husband, Bill. One has a hard time finding Nan. for she is usually out looking for an orchestra for our next dance or trying to find the least expensive decora- tions for it. She is always busy, but she is always willing to do a little more. Tall and slim, poised in anv situation, ready to work or have a good time, school and class spirited, that ' s Nan — a fine nurse and wonderful person to know. 120 Ann Taylor Proctor In selecting the most outstanding of Ann ' s attributes, we might choose her pug nose and her unusual, characteristic giggle. Ann first worked as a Pink Aide and spent one year at Mary Washing- ton College before coming here to pursue her career. " Take it easy. Ann, the world isn ' t coming to an end, " that ' s Ann ' s motto. Even though she is easily upset by small things, she has a way of overcoming difficulties with minimal ill effects. Often she gets the little things that bother her off her chest by talking a mile a minute. Ann ' s interests include swimming and other outdoor activities as well as parties and pretty clothes. Her future will utilize her talents acquired in nursing in planning a home for her husband, Dick, and raising a family. Phyllis Catherine Redifer " Bless its pointed head " is attached to anything that catches Phyl ' s fancy. Though quiet before you know her, she is dynamite after you do. Living in a cemetery hasn ' t dimmed her spirits, as she is always looking for the brighter side and ready to go. Phyl ' s interests include bowling, knitting and stock car races. You can be sure that wherever Phyl goes, there will be a confusion of " necessary junk " under the bed. Phyl is one gal you can be sure will always come up with the right remark for the right situation. The future in nursing is undecided but there is a clue; she is a firm believer in the psychiatric aspect of nursing. Anne Willis Scluick Anne ' s most appealing features are her soft blue eyes and her natural unaffected personality. She will long be remembered for her absent-mindedness; however, she can be counted on to re- member that which is important. Anne is well liked and admired by all of her co-workers and by her patients. On the ward she is calm, serious and efficient with unusual concern for the welfare of her patients. She has proven her capabilities in extra cur- ricular activities by her work as class treasurer for one year and as co-editor on the yearbook photography staff. Aside from these tasks, Ann can always find time to enjoy herself. She especially likes summer sports and, on her days off, can usually be found at Sherwood Forest. 121 Martha Anne Smith If ever a girl looked good with a shiny nose, this is one! Trim and neat, Marty is an attractive nurse with her dark hair, hazel eyes, pleasant grin and sparkling appearance. Quiet at times, but possessing a witty and mischievous personality. Marty adds extra life to any surroundings. Being quick in thought and action is a great asset to her in being a well-liked, efficient nurse and a zip on the basketball court. Often seen on her way to spend a day at home. Marty joins in. or initiates, much fun while in the nurses ' home. An old faithful when there is work to be done, she did a great job as co-editor of the yearbook. Patricia Elizabeth Smith Vivacious, quick-quipping Pat sparks any situation, on the ward, in the classroom or a social get-to-together — you may de- pend on the girl with the infectious smile to start the laughter ringing. Her ready wit is complemented by her competent han- dling of duties and responsibilities. Always in control of the situation she manages her work with envied ease. When not at- tending her patients needs, Pat is first in line when the fun begins. Ever willing to help when the necessity arises, she came through as usual with dance decorations and preparations. Her classmates expressed their confidence in her abilities when they elected her to the office of class secretary during our intermediate year. Gracia Helen Somerville R. S. in Nursing A quick laugh, neat appearance, and friendly disposition can best describe this slender nurse. Grace is an avid reader of good literature; she also has a fine collection of musical recordings. She gets great pleasure from the outdoor beauties found in the fields and woods around her home near Elkridge. Many of us will remember the visits and parties at Gracie ' s home. She was always eager to share her home with friends who lived farther away. Psychiatric nursing will probably be the field in which Grace will work. With her high academic rating, conscientious nursing care, and all around " know how, " Gracie will be successful in any nursing endeavor. 122 Gloria Ellen Spaiildiiig Gloria, a trim lass with ice blue eyes, is known as one of the permanent residences of " seventh heaven " . Blessed with an even temperament and mystic quietness, she is a highly respected, sincere, and well-liked student and a conscientious nurse, ever aware of her patients ' needs. Each time you saw a cloud of dust being briskly swept out of Gloria ' s door, you were reminded that she was cleaning again; and her consistant neatness is still in play. Working hard, but still not missing any of the fun, Gloria has accomplished a great deal while lending a helping hand in various activities, serving on dance committees and acting as senior class secretary. Virginia Dorothy Speer This bundle of boundless energy answers to the name Ginny. Often seen running down seven flights of stairs instead of waiting for an elevator, Ginny is prone to laughing at the drop of a hat. She loves to tell funny stories and always is the first to giggle about them. Her vivaciousness and zest have lifted the spirits of many of her classmates and her patients. She enthusiastically begins work and really gets things accomplished. Ginny has the reputation of being on and off a diet more frequently than can be imagined. Future plans for " skinny Ginny " include pediatric or general duty nursing. Jacquelyn P. Speiser " Now really " issuing from the midst of a group is a sure sign that Jackie is there. When not otherwise occupied, she is fre- quently found listening to her collection of jazz records. Another one of her favorite pastimes is delving into the mysteries of as- tronomy. On duty, Jackie is a hard worker and a consciencious one. She is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. Her sincere manner and quiet ways have gained for her many friends. Jackie ' s quiet veneer hides a love of parties and good times. In spite of the subdued appearance she presents, her wit and mischievousness add to any social gathering. 123 Shirley Mae Ward Quiet, understanding and always willing to help is Shirl. She is our tall, honey-blond classmate and a mighty fine nurse, who is most likely college bound after graduation. " Shirl, got time to cut my hair? " is a familiar echo around the nurses ' residence. She is our beautician on the side! Well groomed, she has one of the neatest closets in the nurse ' s home. The extra attractions in tha closet are home made delicacies. Yes, many a snack has come from ShirPs closet. Much of her spare time is spent in reading and going to the movies, especially musicals; and she never misses an opportunity to go to Ocean City. See you at vacation time Shirley ! Suzanne Moss Waterman With a smile on her face and a song on her lips, Suzie is our high-spirited gal who is always willing to help complete a task or turn it into a laughing frolic. With little thought for her own feelings, Sue di splays everlasting enthusiasm and cheerfulness which has added much pleasure to the lives of her classmates and patients, giving them a glimpse of the brighter side of any situation. Playing basketball and pinochle and serving as Student Gov- ernment Association vice-president in 1955 were among her many extra curriculum activities. Suzie ' s sincere, friendly personality is responsibile for her many and varied acquaintances. Although she is generally found in a group, she sometimes steals away for a practice session at the piano or a shopping spree. Ailene Bolden Younkin B. S. in Nursing Calm. cool, and collected " Younkie " came to us after sjiending two years on the College Park campus. She is best known for her uncanny ability to be late consistently for everything. She shows great talent as the artist of the class. In addition, she enjoys good music, books, and drama. She has an itching foot and heads for Pennsylvania " Homeland " as often as possible. " Younkie " liked her work in Psychiatry the most, but as yet she does not know what field she will pursue as a graduate. We will long remember her subtle humor and quiet assurance. 124 Class Officers Junior Class officers: Mary Brannan, Joan Rice, Emily Watts, Maxine Pyle, Barbara Lape, Joan Matthews, Joyce Simpson, Helen McFadden, and Jo Nocke. Senior Class Officers: Jo Helmick, Nell Pardew, Georgie Hinely, Gloria Spaulding, Penn Childress and Judy Conroy. Set the Pace The classes of the University of Maryland School of Nursing were composed of girls from a variety of back- grounds bound together by a common goal and a sharing of the experiences of a student nurse. Each class elected its own officers and handled its own affairs. Sponsoring school dances, planning class activi- ties and making group decisions were all a part of every class ' s meeting. The Senior class, distinguished by the black band en- circling the caps of its members, found planning for graduation and June week to be an important problem and as this climax to our student days neared, class meetings took on new significance. " All in favor of a party, say aye! 125 Sarah Barnes Lillie Baxter Patricia Bean Barbara Biehl Caroline Cooper Nancy Coram Frances Denni: Helen McFadden Dorothy McClure Barbara Lape Mary Lancaster CLASS OF 1956 Marlene Mules Josephine Nocke g Maxine Pyle Joan Rice Doris Rutherford Lillian Scott Patricia Shanahan Nancy Shrop 120 p.

It was in the general medical and surgical areas that we had our first contacts with the patients and their problems. Medical nursing acquainted us with various types of therapy. We learned the value of supportive nursing care as well as specific treatments. Surgical nursing offered a more acute type of nursing experience. Here we became keenly observant for post-operative com- plications or change in condition; this awareness has carried over into all fields of nursing. These areas saw us develop our nursing prowess from inexperienced no- vices to self-confident, competent nurses. Tube Feeding — a part of comprehensive nursing care. 128 " With loyally will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, ... " ' o Better patient rare was made possible thru teamwork. I ■■■ ' T ' M f Three minute scrub . . . preliminary to asepsis. The operating room with its drama and precision was one of the areas that we approached with anticipa- tion and a feeling of insecurity. The first " scrub " lost its dreaded aspects, however, under the capable direction of the experienced personnel. The techniques that we mastered here remained with us throughout the rest of our experiences. Having participated in the surgical procedures, we were able to appreciate the principles behind good surgical nursing care of the pre-operative and post-operative patient. This was one of our most valuable clinical areas as we eorelated theory and ex- perience. Operating Room A need ... A surgical team . A life saved. . A job well done 129 Obstetric The miracle of birth is a constant source of wonder to those in the Obstetrical Department, regardless of whether they ' re wondering at the minute perfection of the brand new citizen — or whether they ' re wondering just how all of the patients manage to arrive at the De- livery Suite in time . Care of the normal newborn and orientation of moth- ers to the Rooming-In plan are included in nursery ex- perience. In the clinic, all patients undergo an initial screening process. The instruction which accompanies pre-natal care presents a real teaching opportunity to the student nurses in that area. The vitally interesting at- mosphere of the delivery room is sparked by the spon- taneous information which is so willingly contributed by Coo«l prcnaliil i-are — a must for a hcallhv niolhrr and habv. The nursery — an infant ' s first home. A new star in the play of life. 130 Nursing the staff. Management of the normal condition of preg- nancy is supplemented by the care and treatment of the abnormal aspects which occur in some expectant moth- ers. A great many such abnormal cases are prevented due to careful observation of the patient throughout pre- natal care. A happy, healthy mother and baby is the ultimate goal and chief reward to those in Obstetrics. Departmental responsibility does not cease upon delivery of the patient . . . postpartum care and a good followup to insure maximum health is the final phase of obstetrics. This field of nuirsing holds great personal interest and value to us as we plan for the future. For this reason, in addition to the pervading happiness of the new parents and the excellent instruction received, Obstetrics is a favorite of many students. f t iri Medical consullalion — a valuable asset to learning. Knowing how builds confidence in mother, security in child. The nurse — a friend and teacher. 131 Pediatric Pediatrics was another milestone in our training as we progressed through the years. Here we learned to modify our nursing care to meet the needs of the young child. Since sickness is indiscriminate, this department was the answer to the needs of children from birth throughout the formative years. Tliose patients de- manded special attention since hospitalization was a new and often terrifying experience for them. Initial family separations had to be acconmiodatcd for. and the child needed to realize a friendly security. Our plav program experience enabled us to see the value of recreation in spanning the abyss between the home and the hospital. The premature nursery, the formula room, and the pediatric clinic experiences completed our knowledge of every phase of pediatric inirsiiig. Academically, we gained the technical information necessary to handle in- telligenth jicdiatric problems. Pediatrics proved to be a challenge to our nursing skills, inger.uitv. and patience.

Psychiatry An important and profitable phase of nursing was ex- perienced bv each of us during our three months of psychiatric affiliation. It was then that we learned of the close relationship between mental and j)hysical illnesses and the methods to meet the patient ' s various needs. For some of us the affiliation was spent at Springfield State Hospital, while for others it was spent at our own new and modern Psychiatric institute which is designed to provide the mentally disturbed patient with an ideal environment for the promotion of health and recovery. There are extensive Occupational and Recreational Ther- apy programs directing activities of recreational and S(M ' ial functions in the Institute. Here is one of the most adequately staffed mental hospitals in the country which differs from state hospitals in that patients are not com- mitted but request admission. With adequate staff and facilities, the newest methods of psychiatric treatment are practiced, bringing about more rapid recovery for our |)atients. Through classes and clinical work, knowledge was gained on approaching mental patients and meeting their needs for security and understanding. We viewed the progress made by many emotionally disturbed patients through the aid of psychotherapy, insulin shock, electro- convulsive therapy, occupational therapy and recrea- tional therapy. Psychiatry proved to be of much value in our every day living: we came to understand others better, as well as ourselves. By realizing the patient ' s emotional prob- lems, we can now give better care to the physically ill by meeting their problems and conflicts in a mature and understanding manner.

Off to meet the community. Each of us had the opportunity of having public health nursing included in our nursing educational program. This phase of our training enabled us to enter the homes of patients and deal with the situations we found there. This called upon our ability to teach these patients at home how to care for themselves or some member of the family. We also learned to improvise equipment and methods and to adapt these to home use when needed. We discovered community resources and health organ- izations which we might call upon in giving good nursing care to our patients. This type of nursing differed from our bedside nursing in that, by every visit, not only the patient but the family as well was aided; and any con- dition, whether medical, financial, or emotional, was considered and directed into the proper channels for help. Mt. Wilson served the dual purpose of offering us experience in the nursing care of a communicable dis- ease and providing an opportunity to integrate all phases of general nursing into the broad field of care of the chronically ill patient. The tuberculous patients that are treated here taxed all nursing skills. They needed not only medical isolation care but extensive teaching per- taining to self care and continued preparation for their return to active lives. This experience included field trips to other specialized hospitals and industries, which in- tegrated care or rehabilitation of tuberculosis patients in their programs. Mount Wilson.

We were able to observe the patients before and after hospitalization and to instruct them in caring for themselves. The diet school afforded us the opportunity to visualize the theories that we had learned in the classroom. We became familiar with the diets prescribed for specific conditions. During our accident room experience, we became acutely aware of the function of the accident room as a coiiimunitN haven for those in need of immediate medical attention.

The spirit of Christmas, a season of reverance and rejoicing, pervaded the dignity of the hospital through- out its entirety. The kaleidoscopic trees, the harmonious caroling and the festive decorations all blended to form the nucleus of our holiday recognition. The staff party was a gala affair with refreshments, caroling and seasonal spirit. This yearly occasion proved as usual to be one of the annual highlights of the staff ' s social calendar. Our own nurses ' pajama party was another holiday landmark. The annual trimming of the Christmas tree and exchanging of gifts marked the occasion. The children who were hospitalized during this season of youngsters ' delight were not disappointed when Santa Claus appeared on our pediatric floor for their Christmas celebration.

Here we found abundant, up to date sources of information rela- tive to any problem with which we were confronted. In addition to the wide spectrum of technical material available, we discovered a wealth of leisure reading liooks which we were able to enjoy during our spare moments. As a culmination of these assets, we were gifted with librarians who were willing to devote unlimited time to our individual problems. This combination assured us of an open door to the literary aspect of our education. Keeping pure Mith nui ing trend i. " Invo ligallng the literature " in the Psvchiatrir Librarv.

" This was our invitation to enjoy a change in routine and an evening of relaxation with fun and singing. The Glee Club has been in existence for approximately three years under the able leadership of Charles Haslup. Instructor in the music department on the College Park campus. The club consisted of the singing " Nightingals " until last year when we were privileged and honored by having several young men from College Park and vicinity join our group. They were truly an asset! The Glee Club found singing an enjoyable way to spend Monday evenings, but our greatest pleasure came when we had the opportunity to sing for others. Our performances in past years have included programs given at the Naval Academy, Fort Meade Recreation Center, and the annual employees ' Christmas party here at University Hospital, plus other performances on television and at teas and luncheons. In the future, we hope to have even greater plans.

The highlight of the social cal- endar was the Homecoming Dance with the crowning of our queen, Judy Conroy. Judy represented our school in the Homecoming pageant on the College Park campus. The themes of the various dances ranged from hobos to formais. " Maryland, we ' re all behind you . . .
