and embarrasment of circulation to the gluteal area, and so was con- tinued. In addition, the patients were taken to the pharmacology lab- oratories for several hours daily, where they were used to study certain pharmacologic reactions, such as the reaction of medical students to rat bites, cat scratches, third-degree burns of the forehead, 10,000 volts from a shocking machine, and chicken dung. Gunn's mixture was supplied for sedation when necessary, and its soporiflc effect was augmented by stuffing the patients into a hot, dark room and placing poorlyffocused pictures of pathological specimens be- fore them. Since the above regimen left the patients with nothing to do for three out of every twenty-four hours, they were subjected to extensive bacteriological study, and the cultures thus obtained consistently grew out pure colonies of alphafhemolytic Staphylococcus contaminata. Be- cause of this, a suspension of GebhardtfMarcus reagent was poured into the left ear of each patient and permitted to flow out the right ear, care being taken that none was retained or absorbed. Toward the end of the second year, the patients were frequently observed milling about the hospital attired in neck ties and white coats, thinking they were doctors. The hospital staff deemed it advisable to permit these delusions to continue-hence, the patients were allowed the privilege of wearing stethescopes and rectal gloves with license to auscultate, percuss and digit-alize at will. At the beginning of the third year, the patients were transferred to the Salt Lake County General Hospital where they were moved around from service to service, earning their keep by doing blood counts, rhu- barb titers, fecal geranium levels and other vital laboratory work. While on the medical service the patients were attended by Drs. Wintrobe, Cartwright, Hecht, Tyler, lager, Waldo, and by members of the junior staff. Their stay on this service was dotted with many un- forgetable highlights. Cn rounds, a fortunate member of the group would occasionally be given the opportunity of impressing a member of the senior staff with the extent of his medical knowledge. The staff man was often so impressed that he would find it difficult to control himself. Treatment while on the surgical service was directed by Drs. Price, Moretz and Shaffer along with the residents and interns. Day after day our heroes were taken to an arena called the "O.R." where they en- gaged in a competitive sport known as a "scrub" In this game, a patient, first rendered unconscious by allowing him to breathe no more then 576 Ai"

oxygen and suddenly doubling his blood volume with transfusions, is firmly attached to one end of an apparatus called a "retractor" and our subject is required to grip the other end firmly while a fourth party, known as the "surgeon" throws questions, sponges, insults, threats, hemo- stats and resected segments of small bowel at our hero Cwho at this point of the game is usually called a "jerk."J The "surgeon" is trying valiantly all the while to force the "jerk" to relinquish his hold, but the surgeons soon learn the futility of their efforts. For two compelling reasons, the Ujerki' does not let go: CU his overwhelming, driving de- votion to duty, and QQ after holding that thing for eight hours, he is unable to open his hand. Rotation through services also included the Pediatrics department with Drs. Bosma and Kelley presiding. During this period the patients apparently regressed to an early stage of psychosexual developmentg they were frequently seen playing gleefully with meconium-an act which was classically characterized by a member of the senior staff as a "singularly scintillating, albeit esoteric demonstration of a remarkable subtle entity." This statement provoked considerable discussion from the radiologists who collectively felt that the pediatricians had no basis for saying what- ever it was they said. The department of Psychiatry, under Drs. Branch, Bliss, Tabaroff, et al, was consulted and agreed to take over the care of these patients for one month. Immediately upon arrival at the psychiatric ward, the latter werel given keys-thus distinguishing them from the schizophrenics who were being treated. After four weeks' association with the staff and clientele of this department, the visual acuity of the patients under discussion improved sufficiently that they, too were eventually able to enjoy the fascinating array of small animals, secret service men and twofheaded plaid ducks which reportedly adorned the ward. At the close of the third year, the patients were discharged from the hospital wards to be followed in the outfpatient clinics for the suc- ceeding year. The fourth year represented a distinct change. The patients no longer were subjected to the frustrations of learning. The previously futile attempts to educate them were discontinued almost completely and they were prepared for the day on which the academic umbilical cord would be severed. Preparation for their resurrection into the cold, cruel world was accomplished by leaving them entirely to their own devises, with no guidance or instruction save for the efforts ofa few
