. f.m . ' ■■ ' If ' fi ' r V; II " a i A ' J f y „ i w As we are about to assume the sacred responsibilities of Doctors of Medicine, we pause to present a few glimpses of the humor, the despair, the endless humdrum, and the joys that have been parts of these first years of our education . . . " r, ' , ' s THE 1953-54 HIPPOCRATEAN SCHOOL OF MEDICINE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH A ;;;» A, PITTSBURGH • PENNSYLVANIA A ' i § fl William S. McEllroy. B.S.. M.D., Sc.D., LL.D. Dean In 1819, the Western University of Pennsylvania, now the University of Pittshurs h, was cre- ated by an Act of the General Assembly as the successor to the Pittsburgh Academy which had pre- viously been chartered in 1787. The first " Principal " of the Western University was the Reverend Robert Bruce. In his inaugural address, delivered in 1822. he expressed the hope that the University might soon establish a School of Medicine. On June 30, 1883 a charter was granted creatnig the Wesieni Pennsylvania Medical College and the first class of twenty-one students graduated in 1887. The Western Pennsylvania Medical College became the Medical Department of the University of Pittsburgh in 1908 and moved to the University campus in 1910. Since then the physical facilities ha ve greatly expanded and I feel con- fident that the proposed new Medical School will be realized in the near future. However, marble halls do not make a real Medical School but rather a competent and faithful faculty and student body. Any institution is known by the quality of its product. I am quite con- fident that the class graduating this June will carry on in the highest ideals of medicine and bring credit to its Alma Mater. ;( . .S. McEllroy Ml Richard H. Horn, A.B., M.D. Assistant Dean It is with pleasure and a great deal of pride that I greet and eongratulate the 195 J graduating class in Medicine. The path which you, as members of this class, have followed during the past four years has been long, difficult, and at times. I am sure, discouraging. You have, however, worked hard and faithfully. By your industry and dedication, you have earned a place in the hon- ored family of physicians; you have acquired knowledge and skills which are not yours alone but which are a part of your timeless medical heritage to be used unselfishly and unsparingly for the comfort of the ill and for the instruction of those who are to follow you in the profession. You enter your careers with grave responsibilities toward your fellow men, but you are sustained by ex- cellent training, and you go with the good wishes of your teachers, who have faith that you will, as physicians, bring honor and satisfaction to yourselves and to your University. Richard H. Horn I 5 J Davkni ' okt Hcioker, Ph.D., Sc.D. Dedication Students in all schools remember certain tew of their teachers with the fondest recol- lections, men outstanding not only in erudition, but also in character, in unceasing service and unswerving loyalty, and most ot all, a consuming interest in their students. Such are our feelings toward Dr. Davenport Hooker and Dr. W. W. G. Maclachlan. Dr. Hooker, Head of the Department of Anatomy since 1919, is the student ' s iirst contact with Medi- cal School, and were it not for his genuine interest and sage counsel would be many stu- dents ' last contact. Helping all freshmen through the sea of troubles that besets them is his keenest satisfaction. An outstanding anatomist renowned tor researches in embryol- ogy, especially behavior, he is a stimulating teacher, .iiid h,is been one ol the prime factors in the expansion of the school. Dr. Maclachlan has been a t.icuity member 16) William Watt Graham Maclachlan, M.D., CM. since 1910, first in the Department of Pathology, and later in the Department of Medicine where for years he has headed the teaching at Mercy Hospital. Though busy with his own practice and research, he has never been too busy to teach and always has time for students. Saturday morning conferences are an inspiration; reflecting years of observation and expep ience and unaffected concern for the patient, they bespeak that quintessence so seldom mentioned — the ideals of medicine. In admiration for what they have done for Pitt, and gratitude for many hours generously given us and preceding decades of students, w e affectionately dedicate this volume to Dr. Davenport Hooker ' and Dr. W. W. G. Maclachlan 7] To Our Parents and Wives ... Great joy and satisfaction at graduation are tor not only the graduate, but for parents and wives whose love and sacrifices have made the seemingly intolerable and daily routine joyous. Written words cannot fully express our appreciation for long years during which you gave freely and without complaint as we prepared for our future in medicine. We are deeply grate- ful for your patience and understanding and hope we will prove ourselves worthy of your confidence. Ad Multos Annas With the close of school in June, 19 ?, Pitt Medical School will lose several of its most distinguished faculty members when the tolU)wing will retire : Dr. James D.

The Classes of ' 3 .md " 4, the l.i i to h,i c the honor ol being taught by them, wish them many more active aiul happy years. We salute them tor they have been devoted faithful teachers who served long fruitful years in times when the future of the .school .seemed in doubt. Without them there never would be the present golden age. 8) The New Medical School SCHOOL OF MEDICINE ADMINISTRATION RuFus Henry Fitzcerald, M.A.. L.H.D., HH.D.. LL.D., ChanceUor Charles B.

' i ' £ ' ■ J U N I O R S CLASS OF 1954 THE CLASSICAL 54 SYNDROME DHFINITIC ' lN : Tins is a disease, prcv.ilcin thrciui liout the ai;es. wliieh lias atfeeted a select ijroup ot individuals fortunate (?) enoutjh tci acquire it. Characterized .it first by anxiousncss, dreamini;. fearing, hoping, and praying for its on.set, tliis syndrome le.ives those it att.ieks with .mxiousness, dreams, fears, hopes, ,ind prayers that they can withstand its course ,ind fulfill its endowments. INCIDENCE: The unique fe.iture of this syndrome is it .itfects hut one- hundred individu.ils. These one-hundred people arc those enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the class of 19.i4. Other syndromes of this type affect thousands of people, but only this sselect few were chosen to be the recipients of this particular one. This group ranges from Aarons to Zeedick; its ratio of male to female is 97 to ? (les jeuncs filles de la classe) . Geographically the majority affected were from Pennsylvania. MORBID ANATOMY: Textbooks, of all sizes .ind merit, .ire the pathological units. These have been supplemented by lectures, demonstrations, movies (snooze!), slides (more snooze!), and laboratories. Variation in their leader, location, length, .md content expl.iin the multiplicity of patliologic pictures. The primary morphologic m.inifestation is apparently focal injury to the nerve cells throughout the body. This resul ts in elation in some of the individuals, melancholia in others, and manic- depression in most. The entire disease process la.sts four years. The first two are devoted primarily to the depressive stage with the onset of the syndrome, the initial injury, and its major pathology. The two ye.irs result in the manic stage with a progression of the, its climax, and At this writing three of the four years have pa.s.sed. LABORATt RY blNDINCS: These ,iiv the te.itures of the first two ye.irs in the course of this affection. " In the beginning " there were the l.ibor.itories of and microscopic anatomy. The findings here will never (?) be forgotten. These labs affected the class in many and v.iried w.iys. Dave Goodm.m, for example, .scurried hither and yon from di.ssecting t.ible to dissecting t.ible. one fine tl.iy, in ,i v.nn .ittempt to find elusive " right spleen " ( " we are bilaterally symmetrical. aren " t we? " ) and Episcopo (the " fungi " boys) never did find the Inferior Ven.i Cava. The hundreds o slides in Histo contained .such ,i m.ize of little dots ,uid lines most of the decided to wait till Path to learn the former material ( " stippling will never do! " ). Gray sent Bodek. Michaels, and Pincus spinning along with most of the rest of the class. Ashor and Atwell will testify, too. those little b.iby-pigs, so nicely sliced u| prepared, and .served, wvren ' t as appetizing as they were cracked up to be. Physiological Chemistry had its uriniferous aspects, and Russ Ander.son may still have that twenty- four hour specimen he .so tenaciously preserved in his refrigerator .it home over the enforced vacation of the big snmv. And it was all too true that Fusia and Gaylor weren ' t the only ones to Gram stain their fingers more often bugs cont.imin.ited everything and anything in the Bacteriology lab. As spring and the end of the year arrived, all the members of this bedraggled and li.iggard. did .in excellent job of drowning their sorrows in the free-flowMiig beer ,it North P.irk. This first year, filled with anxiety and apprehension, a dillicult hurdle to overcome; it was, perhaps, the most difficult year, m.iinly because of Us uncert.iinty. But. .it it over. .ukI tlie class was one-fourth M.D. 46 There were one-hundred remissions as the summer of 1931 passed but the exacerbation was bound to come. September brought it on, and the subjects of the syndrome, with renewed vim and vigor, returned to the labs. Consideration of Physi- ology and Neuro started the grind again. Hermann and Hibhard. as well as Shaver, the Smith boys, and the rest of the class fell prone to the maze of ascending tracts, la teral cell columns, dorsal root ganglia, and preganglionic visceral efferents until all were as confused as the red, green, blue, and yellow diagrams so lavishly splashed through " the notes. " The plague of those !? smoked drums descended with full force and this phase of the syndrome almost sent more people to Western Psychiatric than anything else. Many types of therapy were attempted to combat that tragedy, and perhaps the most effective was that perfected by D ' Zmura, Rougraff, and others, i.e. gently touching the writing tip of the lever at just the right time to get the proper deflection (and the tracings looked just like the book. too!). Pharmacology drugged the heartiest of the group (Menzies was stopped just in time from drinking that strychnine with his lunch) ; perfusion reigned supreme and O ' Hara, Reigh, and Renton were only a few of those who thought they ' d never get done with that lengthy work. During Immunology the most chagrined members of the class were those who, politely following instructions, donated a few c.c. ' s of blood and were told several days later thay had positive Wassermans! (The culprits who switched the sera were apprehended finally with Dr. Stock ' s help.) And then it happened, that which possibly makes this class most unique — the boy scientist took over the Department of Pathology and the group became the guinea pigs of the new regime. This was the first class to be allowed to take its slides home (huzzah!), and the first to have whole autopsies presented (every Wednesday afternoon!). The manic stage here began to raise its head among the profound depression and the entire course was spotted with episodes of surprise quizzes ( !? ), and water- gun fights (with those pro-marksmen Gress, Rossi, Provan, and Tyson battling continu- ously with McClure and his machine gun) . Then Physical Diagnosis came and the group had its first taste of hospital life. At last Buffington, Constanza, Kartub, and the rest could strut around with those stethoscopes (the badge of ofHce) protruding no less than six inches from their coat pockets. And how Mme. Biello and Mademoiselles Griffith et Morganti " abhored " carrying their little black bags ( " it just isn ' t ladylike " ) . Diek Miller, the Scott boys, as well as Bradshaw, Danko, Holzinger, and the rest were properly confounded by the variety of lub-dubs, borborygmi, gurglings, swishes, and other noises they were supposed to hear with their " scopes; and Yockey, Weigel, Tarr, and Van Marter are still trying to get the correct flatness, hyper-resonance, and dullness that they ' re supposed to by hitting two fingers together. And so ended the second year of this interesting syndrome; Kaebnick and Lowery liked it so much they decided to do it all over again (but as pharmacology-physiology instructors) ; and most of the class again attempted to uplift their spirits with another North Park beer scuffle. (Ludin even got engaged that day!) The summer had come, and what was left of the downtrodden group was one-half M.D. CLINICAL COURSE: Considered the most interesting portion of the syndrome, the clinical course occupies the last two years. At last the individuals affected by this disease have been admitted to the various hospitals of the city (from which they may never be released!). And so truly begins the manic stage of the syndrome. Spcer, Bradley, and the Brown boys forgot to answer when .iddressed " Doctor " by their first patients, but it certainly was a wonderful feeling. Hairston. McAlpine. and Manns are still trying to distinguish D.T.D. from M.fe Ft., and Marks, Patterson, and Vermeire are only a [47] tew wild arc yet trying to figure nut why sir. viiss and 0.5 Gm. arc one and the same. The wonders ot Medicine immediately attacked the one-third of the class, and Cipcic, and Dwyer found themselves desperately trying to elicit histories from the most uncooperative ot ]i,itients. Geary Eicher and Don Furman took over Prcsby with a hang hut still couldn ' t get pcrmi.ssion to do as many pelvics as they desired. P.sychiatry presented a weighty problem and Irv Golding. Loren Rosenhach. Dick S.dina. and Hill Henr ' were only a lew wives or mothers had to ti.x the holes m their pockets that were caused by that " key-of-keys. " Perh.ips the most gratifying course was O.R.. but Jules Mazer and Lew Kibler arc still amazed ,ifter doing Hfr ' P ' s on grand-multips working on their fitleeiith (ilfspring. Herb Miller ainl Art Pasach never could tigure out how or why one subtracts three months and adds .seven days tor the E.D.C., and Mei.ster and Moyer were only two of those thoroughly dumbfounded by that ! ' . ' Thom " s pelvimeter. The sterile technique (?) of Surgery j-iroved too much for Lowry ,ind Longabaugh who, too, contracted sterile-phobia every time they entered O.R. Rob Klemens liked Presby so much he decided to .stay there even after his Surgery serve was over (as a librarian). Presby also saw John Lukacs giving Dr. Morris Sanders a hard time with the differential diagnosis of jaundice and Kunkle and Ligo wowing the nurses therein. Campbell and Clarke will be ever-thankful for their experiences at Children ' s in Pediatrics ( " Are those kids controllable? " , queried Wright. Wilson, Ward, and W.ilter in unison). Magee Hospital saw Tomci Soyka. and Thomas scurrying around the Gynecology ward (gloves in hand) ever-mindful of their professional attitude. And so tliis group of people, .iffecled .so profoundly by this syndrome of accomplishment, descended on the wards of Pittsburgh ' s hospitals. The class was the first to have .ivailable for its the VA Hospital at Aspinwall and among the first to be there were Tom Hohm.inn ami l5ob Radke. COMPLICATIONS: As has been mentioned there are main- neurologic mani- festations. Profound depression mingled with .iiiNuty . nd uncertainty are among the first to attack almost all the subjects of the syndrome. Mel.mcholia plays an important role. Frank elation, as was often experienced by Holt, Johnson, and Peters, spots the course of the disease throughout. The gastro-jntestmal tract presented constant problems to Ross, Schneider, and Seitz, as well as most of the rest of the group, before the exams all had to experience periodically. Whitman, Montgomery, Ciccarelli, and Spencc, among others, complained of kidne ' involvement .is polyuria resulted frequently, especially during the four hour " quizzes. " PROCiNOSIS: The prognosis for affected liy this Classical " 54 Syndrome is excellent. Only one year remains of the four year course of the until the members of this class will receive the coveted diplomas upon which will be emlxisscd " Doctor of Medicine. " Then, as now, each individual will recall the fond memories of ■ the days he spent in attempting to le.irn the art of arts; each v. ' ill reflect in his own mind the enormity of the task which confronts him; e.ich will step torw.ird into the world to assume the burden of the most respected of .ill professions. To the cl.uss as a whole the teachings of Hipiiocratics, Galen, Ves.dius. ,iiid Harvey have been unfolded; to the class as a whole the mysteries of hc.ilth ,iik1 life h.ive been expl.iined. No other single group can step forward into tiie world to so completely donate their knowledge and wisdom tow.ird the better health and welf.ire of others. No other group can occupy a position in life upon which .ill others depend tor loy .ind h.ippiness. " With purity and with holiness I will my lite .md pr.ictice my .irt. " ■48] Jerome H.

" (How things changed six weeks later after that first .matomy test. Who ever would have thought they would ask about that darn fa. cia?) Our first day was given over to introductions, first to Dr. Hookers memorable third floor lab. (All of us were consider.ibly " greener " after that iiurried trip through it). Anatomy was our first acqu.untancc. and when Dr. Hooker ' s .stentorian voice first " gently drifted " off the platform we thought the cadavers arose, but riglit from the start he endeared him.self to all of us. He told us to work hard and not to worry; everyone had the ability we had been .selected to be graduated, not to be failed. Myth number one went up in smoke! After lunch we trooped to WPI to be wafted to sleep by the first breezes in what became a four-year gas attack. Introduction to chemistry rounded out the day. Despite its .seemingly endless grind, .in.itoniy rc.dly m.uiy famous chuckles. Who can forget famous interviews after each unit? Everyone always was " Doing all right, " despite a 3()-minute session. Dr. Priman has a charm all his own, exemplified by the time he was asked what the test questions would be, and he meekly shrugged his shoulders, pointed to Dr. Hooker ' s office and said, " Only he knows. " Dr. Donaldson ' s gadgets are renown; he is the only man who ever demonstrated the embryology of the with cardboard boxes — but everything fitted in the right places. His wit is enviable — viz. his characterizing a certain streetcar as " A Street- car Named Per.spire. " But our cl.iss was too much for him once — he had to prohibit photographing of pig-embryo slides ,ifter we left. It bec.ime too much of a " reprint racket. " All of us remember the day when Ray Peters put up multicolored drawing ,so remini.scent of those we would see the next year and had Dr. Hooker befuddled enough to Dr. Humphrey if it were hers. But the incident that none ever can forget was Dr. Hooker ' s " inside step over toe hold " while he wrestled with that memoralMe multicolored sheet demonstrating embryonic intestinal rotation. The year in anatomy very a| " ipropri.itch ' ended with the bone and soft tissue " rat races, " but we had an added attr.iction — a ship ' s bell instead of common old police whistles, and recordings of " It ' s Later Than You Think " and " Dry Bones. " Chemistry, was the other in. nor bun.len during impression.ible first Our first lectures were given by Dr. h ' l.scher and it immedi.itely apparent that no one would sleep in her lectures — so intent was the delivery and so high the decibels. Dr. Quashnock kept everyone on the b.ill with his surprise, silent stalking througli the l.ib. Experiments on ourselves were unforgettable. We won ' t order any gastric analyses without due reflection now. How many were there who had serious misgivings whether those jugs would hold a 24-hour specimen? Rut a failure was Ra - Boyian who, after collecting the hist inst.illment. dropped his in Penna. Hall! George Makd.ul " mothered " everyone when he was ,in assistant in chemistry .uid got his famous nick-n.ime; but he is more f.imous tor iiis rolling laugh. He is one of rare persons who literally split his sides laughing. Bob MiUigan gets the " A " for laughs in chemistry though. In talking on chlorosis, he remarked tliat the affection no longer existed — .so that was wliy " there were no green girls walking down the street anymore. " Bacteriology was Medley ' s course, he being tlie only one Dr. Stock knew jiy n.ime. How lucky to be called on all those times! Ki.ssing those Petrie disiies might have had some restraining lesson to teach, but none of us learned it! Drs. Stock and Lacy kept each other awake with those " Isn ' t that right . . . " questions, but Dr. Criep fouled ever ything when he asked them a question only to be answered by " z . . . z . . . Z . . . " Hygiene was the List course of the freshman year, that of the rot.iry slide projectors and the " follow the bouncing ball " , where we went to Aspinwall Filtration Plant to really .see this " Schmutzdecke " about which we had heard so much. I 80 1 And then there were 93 . . . By the time sophomore ye;ir began, the " cold war " had become very hot, and many who never heard of it before found Korea very important. Bob Walton was called to active duty and served a week before he could wangle a deferment to finish school. But one thing was the same — Tom Gregg and George Gerneth still were late, always. Sophomore year really was the year of the " big three " : Physiology-Pharmacology, Neuro ' Anatomy, and Pathology. Physiology certainly didn ' t start with a bang — it was a chorus of croaks. Frogs, frogs, frogs — broken up by an occasional mammalian demon- stration. It was only a few weeks until everyone changed his brand and " smoked drums. " " Speed writing " was the order of the day when Dr. Cotter lectured. (How can he talk while sucking life savers?) When pharmacology began enthusiasm ran high (for here we were starting inti.i clinical medicine really) — until the third day when the boom fell, and the frogs returned. But they provided their share of laughs when Dr. Beck (does the microphone stay on now?) pulled his " Man from Mars " act with that magnifying glass while eannulating those vena cavae. The boredom was broken often by mammalian experi- ments ( " 2 c.c, 1 :1000 Now! " ) which all enjoyed except the doorkeeper who continually feared the Hearst boys would come charging through the door. Dr. McLain owns the laurels tor l.iughs though, for his classic remark (made unconsciously, he says) the day the marriage of Ruth Powell and Fred Kane became known — " Well, today we study uterine stimulants. " Neuro-anatomy oppressed us .ill F.ill in 19.M). Many were the afternoons when we emerged from the " bustle lecture hall. " hands limp after almost two hours of furiously changing from one colored pencil to another in futile attempts to get down those " road maps " along with every hamlet and whistle stop along the way. If Dr. Humphrey ' s voice holds out five more years, we ' ll be surprised. The weather man gave us all a boost getting through — the big 30-inch snow came just in time to force cancellation of final exams and we slid through! Whew! After a few weeks in pathology we wondered if wc could enjoy a meal again; many haven ' t tasted currant jelly since. Some lectures were quite amusing; remember Dr. " Noregard " pacing back and forth and the boys in the first row ducking the spray? Those of us with literary inclinations were entranced, " . . . exfoliative, pedunculated, polypoid, disseminated, invasive, hyperchrom.itic. highly anaplastic . . . ; " and those who wanted definite statements maddened, " . . . usually, not infrequently, often occa- sionally, sometimes, illustrated beautifully ... " Yaaagh!! Our first euphc ric moments came when, early in January, we carefully folded and placed in our coat pockets (with the ear pieces a mere four inches out) that magical instrument — our shining armor — and trotted to all points of the county to see that mysterious individual about whom we had heard and day dreamed — the patient. Patients at Leech Farm certainly weren ' t awed by us; they called us the " 99 ' ers. " But we were awed by Leech Farm — that next cold held all kinds of portent. (All in a lifetime). There was a certain mystery about the place too; the sco ?p on Saturday ' s quiz always came back from there! How different are places! At Vet ' s we almost felt like one of the team; at Magee we were solemnly told to use the " student Entrance " — always. (Merely presaged the future). Mercy, the land of the " so called " continually amazed us. How can anyone find his way around those catacombs? Sophomore year ended with several small courses, from " Hm . . . Hm . . . Hm ... " to " Tongue Blade Watson Jones. " In June, feeling extremely sorry for our past year of oppression, we dined with Bacchus at South Park and were regaled to several hilarious take-ofl s from Joe Liggett, Ed Jew, Mike Miklos, Dick Adler. and Ray Peters. Junior year arrived and v. ' ith )ut realizing where to turn or what to do we suddenly were thrown into that charmed and mysterious art for which we had slaved so long — clinical medicine. Everything that first week was strange — those inept questions to our first patient, the " dignified " and inane " hm hm " in physical examinations; those never- ending afternoon lectures, but strangest of all was learning to stand at attention on Thursday afternoons. (Was this part of medicine?) [81 ] Pediatrics impressed on us cluldrcn just weren ' t little .idults ,uid their care was quite unique; but those " Stevenson Slips of the Tongue " kept things humorous. On Tuesdays, the faculty very considerately gave us a siesta hour. It was called " radiology " but a darkened room with added hot air one hour after lunch is too much for even the eagerest beaver. After radiology psychiatry took over and Dr. Brosin kept many laughing; but really, we don ' t think " It ' s hell to get sick in Pittsburgh. " Clinical Clerking in Medicine gave us a chance to our skills in lab work (everyone avidly did it!) and Lou Cherry was really " burned " when he couldn ' t find a match at Mercy. Tapping a distinguished gray-haired man on the shoulder and asking for a match, Lou expounded on how poorly he thought the lab was equipped. " Very interesting, " said the gentleman as he stopped for a look. Very abashed was " Skip " when he found out the gentlem.m Dr. Machlachlan! Ray Boylan remembers surgery most. There, in to Dr. H.irbison ' s query on how the patient was doing. Ray said. " Fine. " " She was put on the kidney last night. " was Dr. Harbison ' s chilling reply. (Must be riglit up to the minute on rounds) . Oph.uh.ilmology dealt with things about the e e. but for most of us it was shut-eye. We always will remember gynecology for just one thing — the day they took roll when half the class was " on leave. " Dick Adler isn ' t going to sign anyone else ' s name again, either. (Oh. the shame of it .ill!) Fridays were days of torture. Tliree hours on those planks at Mercy! Henry M.inkin had all he could stand in March, and down came seat, Henry and all. But all resulted were one less seat in the amphithe.itre and two sore tuberosities. The protes.sors seemed to sympathize though. Dr. did his best with his subtle w ' it, but some days all jokes fall flat. And to Dr. M.ibon and the faculty in neurology: " We really aren ' t that disinterested. Frid.iy afternoon .md two preceding hours of shifting to alternative ischii are more th.m mortal m.m can take. We appreciate your efforts. " The " pit " its humor too. It there Merv Stew.irt rose to new peaks of fame. Everytime movies or slides were to be shown his appreciative classmates chorused, " Merv ' 11 do it. We want Merv. " ( " Aw gee, what can you do when they clamor for you like that? " ). There too Joe Scarlata had his heart attack, induced by Dave Schaub ' s asking Dr. Rusbridge how to properly apply a tongue blade to a broken finger, and then saying he was Joe Scarlata when asked his name. Anil Stitt certainly will remember Mercy too. She ' s the only person in history to come into a surgery final one liour Lite and still come out with a B + . (She .says sht would be very happy not to have had the honor and still have had her sanity the rest of the week). Our class spawned a new in the junior year — the " coffee carrier, " he who bursts into five minutes late, in company of a.ssociates, furtively concealing the Java, wearing a half-hearted, self-conscious smirk. He seemed to work in close consort with that other " pure breed " — the " hisser. " (But he has been aroused a long time). In May we suddenly were faced with the re.ilization the was nearer to completion and our efforts nearer to nothing, with tests coming right up! With one hand on the benzedrine, with the necessary one night stands monotonously following each other, we were .1 horde of irascible automatons until the last of those 17 ex.ims in two weeks p.i.ssed. But B.icehus greeted us again at his yearly revelry, .md troubles soon became oblivion; as a matter of fact everything becinie oblivion. Before anyone was aware the summer of " . ' i2 had pa.ssed. .senior began on .m auspicious September 8. Auspicious it certainly was, for weren ' t we at that blissful year, the only one of our lives, when there no more for us to learn and we merely were paying our respects to that traditional fourth year (Ah! Rash youth!) How events had changed that year! Eisenhower had beaten Taft for the GOP nomination, and later did the impossible by becoming President on the Republican [82] ticket. The AMA hrcatlicd ,iL;,nn .ind Harry Truman complimented himself tor not throwing monkey wrenches into governmental machinery. All the non-vets in the class who had previously deluded themselves into thinking they wouldn ' t be called were shocked back into sanity by the grim draft calls all about them, .md there were several applications for commissions. Yes. there were changes. But much was the same too. We still came to .ittention, only on Tuesd.iy mornings this And Tom Gregg and George Gerneth still were late. Many really started the senior work in the summer by taking their 10-day OB sentences then, preferring to keep the rest of the year as pileasant as possible. One can sleep to the lull.iby of laundry carts and packing crates only so long, and it doesn ' t take few days to learn to hold sutures " in the line of the cut. Doctor, " Senior curriculum must have been designed by a Normandy veter.m; on Fridays all it was was hedge-hopping. First to the Chief Chef , t the North Side White Tower for those " meaty " bony problems, then a short one-half hour flight to either Saint Francis or Mercy for things neurological. After lunch all scattered to points distant for regular clinics. How did they ever do it without automobiles? Like all others, senior year had its hilarity too: Remember Ed Jew (hite for class that day) plastered against the door outside radiology furiously taking notes, and almost bowled over when Dr. Grier stepped out? He wouldn ' t come in either. (It ' s just as well; he would have been the only one taking notes. Who ever will forget that day of Dr. C. R. Schaefer ' s lecture when a bright, young, bouncing lad opened the door, bounded in and said, " Mind if I listen? " " Are you a doctor? " said Dr. Schaefcr. " No, but I ' m .going to do a circumcision in thirty minutes. " " Sorry, this lecture ' s for doctors only. " Our class was once highly honored. On January 22 we were visited by " The Man in the White Suit, " much to our surprise, but not our amazement. Clinics in the afternoon were where we really learned medicine and one of the most basic lessons came home to Ann Stitt and Merv Stewart — Be sure your patient understands you. Each gave a patient a urine sample bottle with the instruction to bring back " some of your water. " And that ' s exactly what they got! Saturday morning had something new; " Question Man Brady " held forth from 8:30 to 10 with always a stimulating clinic and an answer to the extreme psycho- somaticists. But he did a cruel thing the day he quipped about Bob Milligan, " Somebody throw him a pillow, please. " That shock broke up a four-year sleep. Surgery was followed by anesthesiology, which certainly turned out to be a well named and effective course. After the somnolence had passed. Dr. Maclachlan took over with his inspiring clinics in internal medicine. Never reluctant to put forth his ideals, seasoning his discourses with many memories of past, harder years, he has been one of the prime molders of physicians here. We all arc better for his influence. As the days began to lengthen ,ind our spirits slacken as that last turn came into view, one honor came to us out of no virtue on our part; but we all are proud anyway to be the first senior class to have heard the Annual Pitt Medical Alumni Speaker. Dr. Philip Hench, Pitt graduate of the class of 1920, Nobel Prize winner in 1950 and certainly Pitt Medical ' s most famous living alumnus gave a most informative lecture on the status of cortisone at that time, and concluded with a ringing appeal always to be progressive and idealistic. Here was no narrowed " medical scientist, " but a true clinician whose perspectives are not bounded by present horizons, one who makes all Pitt Med students stand a little straighter and breathe a little deeper at mention of their Alma Mater. But as it must in all things our year drew to an end and as we look back over these highlights of our form.itive professional years we view them (in Dr. Hench ' s words) as " the end of a beginning.

Jarret CHILDREN ' S HOSPITAL OF PLrTSBURGH For the past 65 years Children ' s Hospital of Pittsburgh has been caring for the sick children of this community. With more than 200 beds and a convalescent home in the country, with comprehensive, modern equipment and with a professional staff trained in all the areas of children ' s wants in sickness and in health, it is indeed a medical center for youth. No child, be he a premature baby or a probleni ' stricken adolescent, need go elsewhere for adequate diagnosis and treatment. Research The Hospital ' s research activities arc among the most productive in the country. Many persons and foundations have approved and supported them generously. They are convinced that «uch activities offer a necessary contribution to medical knowledge and insure the continued progress of the hospital with a well-informed, alert staff which is com- petent to give its small patients truly expert care. During the past year 46 articles were published or accepted for publication in various medical journals. This reflects the scientific interest of our staff in investigative problems. Teaching Children ' s Hospital, as the pediatric teaching facility of the School of Medicine of the University of Pittsburgh. trains medical and nursing students, interns and residents. Through affiliation, it gives pediatric experience to nurses from 19 hospitals in Western Pennsylvania. Its daily teach- ing ward rounds and clinical conferences, to which all qualified persons arc invited, offer stimulation and post- graduate training to practicing physicians. StaS Five pediatricians devote all of their time to the Hos- pital. Ten other physicians, qualified in pediatrics or allied clinical disciplines, work actively in the Hospital and hold full-time positions on the faculty of the School of Medicine. Finally, a staff of approximately 75 practicing pediatricians and specialists in the pediatric aspects of dentistry, ortho- pedics, psychiatry and surgery, most of whom arc Board certified, hold faculty appointments and take part in con- ferences and ward teaching. Kestiienaes Childern ' s Hospital is approved by the American Col- lege of Surgeons and gives residents in pathology, radiology and surgery qualified training in the pediatric aspects of their specialties. It offers one and two year residencies in pediatrics, approved by the American Medical Association (Council on Education and Ho.spitals) and the American Board of Pediatrics. Approximately 6,000 hospital admis- sions and 50,000 outpatient visits annually provide abun- dant clinical experience with ill children. Neighboring Elizabeth Steel Magee Hospital, with more than 5,000 deliveries each year, offers training in the care of the newly born and the premature infant. Community Well Child Conferences demon.stratc the health supcr ' ision of the growing child. Fourteen first and second year residents and a chief resident comprise the pediatric house staff. They take an active part in the teaching program. 148 FALK CLINIC The University Clinics which provide the nucleus of outpatient te.ichini; at the Medical School are concentrated at the Falk Clinic. This building on Fifth Avenue, now twenty years old, is still one of the most modern, well-equipped and efficiently de- signed clmic buildings in the country. This facility was made possible by a munificent gift to the Univer- sity and to the people of Pittsburgh on the part of two brothers, Maurice and Leon Falk, and their families. The Falk Clinic serves two functions, one of service to the medically indigent of the community and the other, the instruction of medical students. The building houses 28 different specialized clinics and provides service to the community of 50,000 clinic visits a year. Pharmacy, X-ray, laboratories and other ancillary services arc provided in this Clinic. As a further contribution to community service and the .idditional enrichment of teaching opportuni- ties, the building also houses a branch office of the Visiting Nurses Association, a branch office of the State Health Department, and the Central Blood Bank which serves not only the University Center but all of Allegheny County as well. Pending the completion of the new School of Medicine, the De- partment of Military Medicine is also housed in this building. The Falk Clinic is operated directly by the Uni- versity School of Medicine although it serves as the outpatient department of the various independent Medical Center hospitals. Glidden L. Brook.s, M.

Coordinator of Hosj itals tmd Cliriics [ 149 J PRESBYTERIAN, WOMAN ' S AND EYE AND EAR HOSPITALS The Presbyterian Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Woman ' s Hospital of Pittsburg are the general medical and surgical units of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Hospitals. They offer an approved program of medical education for intern and resident physicians. The Hospitals " staffs are composed largely of members of the teaching fac- ulty of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicuic. They are approved by the American Medical Association, the American College of Surgeons, and the American Hospital Association. Their equipment is the most modern available. A medical reference library is m, untamed by the staffs and the hospitals. It subscribes to 91 leading medical journals, and includes an excellent reprint library. The Presbyterian Ho.spital of Pittsburgh was founded in 189. , incorporated in 189.S. It was one of the first to become aililiated with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Hospitals, joining the organization in 1926. The present quarters in Oakland were occupied in June, 19?8. The building was fully completed in 1941. Since that time, it has shown a bal.inced use of all facilities .ind revealed a healthy growth. INTERNSHIPS There are 26 rotating internships .ivailable m the Medical Center Hospitals. The bed capacity of the unit hospitals is as follows: Presbyterian Hospital 2. 4 beds Eye and Ear Hospital 116 beds 6 bassinets Woman ' s Hospital 1 15 beds Childrens ' Hospital 244 beds M.igee Hospital . 5. beds 204 bas-sinets 1,062 beds 210 bassinets The rotating service includes internal medicine, surgery, and its specialties, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, pathology, radiology, and anesthesia. Interns are provided with full maintenance, including room, board, and laundry. They receive an allowance toward the cost of uniforms and a monthly stipend. • RESIDENCIES Residencies at the Presbyterian Hospital, approved by the Council of Medical Education of the American Medical Association, arc available in internal medicine, general surgery, urology, pathology, gynecology, orthopedic surgery, radiology, proct- ology, and plastic surgery. All residents are api ointed teaching fellows in the School of Medicine of the Univer- sity of Pittsburgh. Applications for ai pointmeni for internships should be made to the office of the Chairman of the Central Intern Committee at Hospital, 2. 0 Lothrop Street, Pittsburgh I}. Penn.sylvania.

Through this service, in many instances, deceased persons may contribute to the sight of those who otherwise would be lett in darkness. Closely paralleling this milestone was the opening ot the Department ot AtiJiology in the hospital in 1949 under the directorship of the Professor and the Department of Otology of the University of Pittsburgh. This hospital facility is concerned with all phases of measurement of auditory function, hearing aid evaluation, instruction for aurally h.uidicapped children and adult . and psycho-acoustic research. Chartered on June 22. 189. the Eye and Ear Ho.spital. a unit of the Pittsburgh Medical Center, has a bed capacity of 119, and renders service to the medical profes- sion md community in three important branches of medicine: ophthalmology, otology, ani.1 rhniolaryngology. Affiliated with the .schools of medicine and nursing of the Uni- versity of Pitt.sburgh, it is the only special hospital of its kind in Western Pennsylvania. The medical staff is comprised of faculty members of tlie medical school and the nursing staff consists of graduate and .itlili.itc nurses. Approved by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association and the American College of Surgeons, the Eye and Ear Hos- pital offers residency training in ophthalmology and otolaryngology to qualified physicians, participates in the Medical Center Rotating Internship, and offers junior internships to qualified senior medical students under the supervision of the resident and medical staff. Accredited by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nurse Examiners and the National League of Nursing Education, the Eye and Ear Hospital offers nursing instruction in ophthalmology and otolaryngology to University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing and affiliate students who are assigned to this hospital for A weeks ' rotating .service. • Selected upper classmen and graduate students in the depariments ot Psychology and Speech and the School of Education are offered courses in audiology- theory and prac- ticum— in the Dep.irtment of Audiology in the Eye and Ear Hospital for which univer- sity credit is given. The Hospital and Medical Staff maintain excellent library i.icilities in the speci.ilties of ophthalmology and otolaryngology, subscribing to thirty (. 0) special journals with a collection of 2000 special textbooks and valuable reference periodicals. M.irlha C. Zavonia, R.N. Administrator MRH I 152 WESTERN PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTE The Department of Psychiatry, while always very active, has more than doubled the full-time teaching and resident staff at the Western Psychiatric Insti ' tute due to the expansion policies of the University Board of Trustees, and the Commonwealth of Penn- sylvania. This enables the Department to double the teaching hours for both students and residents. The entire program of the Western Psychiatric Institute might be considered a four front campaign. The Department of Psychiatry is developing ( 1 ) the teaching program for the medical students, nurses and others; (2) the teaching and research program in the hospital; and {}) the Child-Development pro- gram. The latter has activities on the children ' s w ard on the Sixth Floor, at Arsenal Park, The Pittsburgh Child Guidance Center, and the Children ' s Hospital. The Department of Clinical Science is stressing the fourth effort, namely the clinical and laboratory investigation. As these programs come of age, it is believed that both the local and state-wide communities will benefit from the training and research being done here. The medical student will always have a central place in this development, for he is the physician of tomorrow who must furnish the much needed leadership. [ 153] MERC HOSPITAL The Mercy Hospital established in 1847 by the Sisters of Mercy has the distinction of being the oldest hospital in Western Pennsylvania. It its beginnnig in Concert Hall, an old hotel huildmg on Penn Avenue, and on its opening day had but one ward of twenty beds and one or two private rooms. Despite the fact that people were skeptical of hos- pitals in those days, two hundred fifty-four patients were admitted during the first sixteen months. In 184iS, the hospital was moved to a new si.xty- bed building on Stevenson Street, its present site. Here it has expanded in plant and in equipment with the growth of the city and the progress made in the hospital and medical sciences. Today, it has reached a bed-capacity of 720, During the fiscal year of 19M, there were 16,575 admissions to the hospital, .md 24,558 out-patients treated. Of these latter, 3,596 were new patients. The hospital, keenly interested in education, offers a rich field for teaching and research. It is ever alert to new methods for diagnosis and treatment. and strives to aid the physician, as far as possible. with adequate modern equipment. The diligent stu- dent, if he will but search out the treasure, will find a wealth ol knowledge within its walls. The educational program is on three levels, i.e., it provides clinical instruction and practice for (1) medical students, (2) interns. (}) residents. Interns receive their clinical experience through a rotating internship service. The length of each service complies with the requirements laid down by the governing board on internships in an approved program. The metlical students follow a similar pro- gram. Approved residencies are olfered by the in the following services: medicine, surgery, path- ology, bacteriology, urology, neurosurgery, gynecol- ogy, obstetrics, radiology, and anaesthesiology. These residencies are open to all interns who have satis- factorily completed approved intern services; pref- erence, however, is given to interns ot Mercy Hos- pital. The MercN- Hospital School of Nursing is affili- ated with Mount Mercy College and Duquesne Uni- versity; the hospital is akso afliliated with the Du- quesne University School of Pharmacy. The hospital ' s first affiliation, however, was with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; this association with the Medical School dates from 1901 and has become so incorporated into the daily routine that it is now an part of the hospital. I 154] %% 1 l ST. FRANCIS HOSPITAL GREETS THE STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH SCHOOL OF MEDICINE St. Francis Hospital, 45th Street near Penn Ave- nue, Pittsburgh, has most friendly linkages with the School of Medicine of the University of Pittsburgh. This close relationship has been continuous since the establishment of the School. Third and fourth year students of the School regularly pursue at St. Francis instruction in physical diagnosis, clinical clerking, and ward rounds with attendance at clinics and in the Hospital ' s outpa- tient department. During the past quarter-century 264 graduates of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have been appointed to internships at St. Francis Hospital. St. Francis is proud of the service and suc- cess of these physicians, many of whom have also held residencies there. At present 8 residents and 1 1 interns are Pitt alumni. And most of the Hospital ' s medical staff members received their professional education at the University. St. Francis Hospital, founded in 1865, is a non- sectarian, nonprofit institution of general medical and surgical scope. The daily average of patients is 658. The Hospital has pioneered productively in many fields, especially in industrial medicine and surgery, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, neur- ology and psychiatry, and radiology. The institution has contributed largely to and is constantly partici- pating actively in the public and industrial health programs of the city and the surrounding region. Numerous professional groups meet in the Hospital and its School of Nursing. [155] THE ALLEGHENY GENERAL HOSl llAL Following a widespread demand by citizens for a hos[iital n the loriner Cit)- ot Allegheny, the first Allegheny General Hospital was incorporated in 1882. Funds were raised, two private dwellings were acquired and converted into a single hospital building equipped at a total cost of about $6().0()0. The hospital was opened in 1886 with a capacity of 50 beds and during its first year 368 patients were treated. In 1904 a new Allegheny General Hospital was opened on Stockton Avenue. A fund of $880,000 was raised to construct this building. The bed capacity was 405, which for a number of years was inade- quate for the large volume of service the hospital was called upon to perform. Construction work on the present new hospital was begun in 1929. The buildings were completed in 1936 and were opened for the admission of patients on July 1, 19. ' ;6, With ,i capacity of 660 beds, and because of its out,standing and devoted service, the Allegheny General Hospital has built a unique place for itself in the community. The extent of the hos|iitars work can best be realized when it is considered that the grounds, buildings, and equipment have a valuation of $8,700,000. The Allegheny General Hospital has helped make something human out of -iteel. cement, and a great desire to serve. [1 6] THE TUBERCULOSIS LEAGUE HOSPITAL The Tuberculosis League Hospital is a voluntary institution which maint.iins 170 beds for the treat- ment of diseases of the chest. Affiliated with the hospital is an Outpatient Department which annually serves about 5,000 patients referred by private physicians, hospitals, clinics and health departments. With the addition of a new Department of Thoracic Surgery in 1951 the hospital is now admirably equipped to provide every phase of treatment necessary for tuberculosis. The new operating rooms and 22 ' hed department for surgical patients also makes possible the treatment of non-tuberculosis diseases of the chest. The League conducts an intensive program of professional education. The program includes an affiliate course in tuberculosis nursing, offered every si. weeks, in cooperation with five general hospitals in the area. Through a teaching affiliation with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the hospital offers instruction on tuberculosis and other diseases of the chest for medical students as well as resident training for graduate physicians. Each year a clinic on tuberculosis is held for all freshmen. During the sophomore year, there are 144 hours of instruction on diagnosis as well as lectures on the immunology of tuberculosis. During the junior year, students receive a 26-hour course on the clinical and public health aspects of tuberculosis. As a further service the League X-rays all sophomores and juniors each year. The Tuberculosis League Hospital is approved by the American College of Surgeons, the American Medical Association ' s Council on Medical Education and Hospitals, and the State Board of E.xaminers for Registration of Nurses. [ 157 ] ,■.,«• ' " ' ' MONTEFTORE HOSPITAL Sidney M. Bcr m.m. ExccnUvc Director The Montefiore Hdspital was founded in 1908 as a non-sectarian, voluntary, general hospital for the purpose of atfordintj diai;nosis and treatment to ail persons needing medical assistance without regard to race, creed or color. It started on Centre Avenue as an institution of 60 beds, meetuig the requirements of the American College of Sur- geons, with a pathologist, radiologist and Social Service Department, and moved in 1929 to its present location adjacent to the University of Pitt.shurgh Medical Center. The new hospital had a capacity of 190 beds and was approved for internship and also for residencies in surgery and pathology. Since that time, the hospital has grown to a capacity of , ,V) beds. The present is a Teaching .ind Rese.irch hospital .ipprovej additionally for residencies in medicine, obstetrics, ophthalmology, .mesthesia, roentgenology, allergy, medicine-arthritis. The hospital has an approved School for Medical Tech- nologists, is connected with the Unnersity ot Pittsburgh School of Social Science in the training of medical social workers, and is affiliated with the School of Nursing of the University of Pittsburgh. Students from the School of Medicine are afforded training in immunology, obstetrics and physical diagnosis. The residencies at Montefiore Hospital are fully approved by the Council on Medicil Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association, American College of Surgeons, and the several Boards. Tiie Cut Patient Department m.niitanis 27 specialized clinics and a daily atten- dance of 12.i patients. The Administration of the hospital affords residencies in hospital administration to appnwed graduates of the School of Public Health of the University of Pittsburgh. The Montefiore Institute of Research is located in and associated with the clinical program of Montefiore Hospital.

It was organized at the College of Medicine of the University of Illinois, Chicago. August 25. 1902, and is the only order of its kind in medical schools on this continent. Gamma of Pennsylvania, founded in 1916 at the University of Pittsburgh, was the 21st chapter to become established. The definite mission of Alpha Omega Alpha is to encourage personal honesty and the spirit of medical research. More specifically this year A.O.A. has provided its usual annual lectureship, has taken a very active part in evaluating the curriculum of the medical school, has attempted to make available .student research facilities and has initiated periodic interdepartmental teaching conferences.

NU SIGMA NU Nu Sigma Nu fraternity Us beginnings at the University of Miehigan and has the honor of hemg the oldest medieal fr.iternity in the United States. A small group of students, headed by William J. Mayo, was instrumental in the early initial sueeess of the fraternity which has waxed in growth and stature. Today, Nu Sigma Nu is the largest organized medical group of its kind in the world and includes such men as William Osier, C. Loring [oslin, H.irvey Gushing, Otto Folin, Hans Zinsser, and Donald C. Balfour. There are forty-four chapters in the United States and Canada, with an active membership of about 1800 and an alumni group consisting of 2.S,000 doctors scattered throughout the world. The local chapter, Delta of Pittsburgh, was founded February 2, 1891, at the Western University of Pennsylvania, the forerunner of present-day Pitt. It is the oldest medical fraternity of the University and has grown progressively through the years. Delta chapter can count over 800 alumni and eighty-eight active brothers. The fraternity is proud of its one hundred fratres in facultate here in Pittsburgh. Nu Sigma Nu has a varied program of events, including both social and professional .ictivities. Monthly dinner meetings are held, which entail, beside the regular business of the fraternity, after-dinner talks by noted members of the medical profession. The outstanding feature of the school year is the annual Nu Sigma Nu lecture which brings national and international medical men to Pittsburgh. The Nu Sigma Nu Award is granted yearly to the member of the sophomore class who achieves the highest scholastic average during that year. Any sophomore, regardless of fraternity affiliation, is eligible to receive this award. [163] Fnsi row: L. Vatt«, R. Urban, j. Quinn. E. Radasky. M. Sahlancy. Second row: G. Ncy, J. Blank, R.

PHI BETA PI Phi Beta Pi was cstabli-slicd at the Western Pennsylvania Medieal College, now the University of Pitt.shurgh Sehool of Medieine. on Mareh 10, 1891. The chapter was incorporated March 17, 1902, in the Court of Allegheny County. Pennsylvania. The fraternity was founded by a group of thirteen men who handed together in protest to the e.xi.sting medical fr.iternity and medicopolitical .situations. These issues were then held in disrepute by many medical men. Hence, since its inception the chapter has maint.iined its stalwart as regards these factors of abuse and m;iltunction. To this end it has always sought to provide ample opportunities for the discussion of medical problems and controversial matters in an atmosphere of tolerance and one of mutual respect. Thus practitioners, teachers of medicine, and medical students alike .ire urged to meet informally for the purpose of considering the and pertinent problems in the medical field. Such a status has consistently allowed for fr.inkne. s and trecness ot treatment of the i,ssues at hand. Hence it is with such a basic initial foundation and subsequcnl tostering of these ideals that Alpha Chajiter maintains its prominence here at the University of Pittsburgh School of medicine. The fraternity is fortunate to have as its Faculty Advisor J, ones Hodgkiss, M.D. and is generously supported by the Alumni Association. The present Archon is Richard J, Salina; Vice Archon, James E.

Such close bonds of interest and friendship are formed during the school years that the fraternity now has thirty Graduate Clubs, making Phi Dee E a lifetime association for its members. The University of Pittsburgh Chapter. Nu. was established in 1912. Annually it presents to Pittsburgh Medicine a national figure in the medical profession who gives a lecture in Mellon Institute. This lectureship was founded in honor of Dr. R. R. Huggins, Dean of Pitt Medical School from 1919 until 1938. Nu holds monthly dinner meetings which are followed by a medical program, such as a local speaker or a movie. The social calendar usually includes four affairs during the school year. In recent years the fraternity has organized a system by which the upper classmen privately help any of the members who are having scholastic difficulties; this promotes better and a closer relationship among the fraters. Over half of the 1953 graduates are members of Alpha Omega Alpha. The Graduate Club ,it Pitt is very active, presenting two social affairs, brunches, rush stags, and a graduation banquet every year for the undergraduates. 1952-33 officers: Marshall Levy, President; Paul Rogal, Vice President; Irving Golding, Secretary; Arthur Pasach, Treasurer; Jerry Aarons, Social Chairman; Dr. Philip Rosenthal, President of the Graduate Club and Chapter Coordinator; Dr. Leo Criep, Faculty Advisor and Graduate Club Chairman for the Annu:d Huggins Memorial Lecture.

Throughout its existence Phi Rlio Sigma has placed greatest emphasis on developina; in its members a professional consciousness about aspects of medicine vhicli are not adapted to discussion in the curriculum; thus the school and fraternity complement each other, each a necessary part of medical education. Toward the realization of aims, Chi Chapter has for the past two years sponsored monthly lectures, to wiiich all students are invited, which have dealt with person, il aspects of the ]ir.ictice ot .ill the speci.ilties and general practice. Monthly dinner meetings and .social events, iiicludmg the formal dance .md alumni banquet comprise the social calendar.

ZETA PHI Zct;i Phi, Women ' s National Medic, il Fraternity was organized at Syracuse University in 1900 by Dr. Emma Clarke. Its symbols Light and Life were chosen since medicine deals with life and doctors can bring light to many homes. Theta, the Pitt chapter, was installed in May, 1928. At present, Theta chapter of Zeta Phi includes fourteen active medical school members and over one hundred alumni. Theta chapter became a member of the Interfraternity Council of the School of Medi ' cine in 1941 and has twice won the Council ' s Scholarship Plaque Award for the highest average grades of its members, The immediate purpose of Theta Chapter is to afford the women in medical school a social and educational society when they can meet. The highlights of the fraternity ' s social season are the annual pledge dinner held to honor freshman members; the initiation and banquet for sophomores and the farewell dinner in honor of seniors. Dr. Tryphena Humphrey is the faculty advisor of the fraternity. In 1952 an annual award was established to honor the student, male or female, who has shown outstanding perform. ince .ind i romisc during the junior and senior cleckships in Pediatrics.
