Special Reports 


To the Class of '58: 

As the person charged with the responsibility for your formal prepara- 
tion for your life's work — the practice of medicine it gives me very great 
pleasure to be able to greet you as Doctor. With my congratulations go 
my heartfelt wishes for a full measure of productive and satisfying years. 

The Class of 1958 has enjoyed or endured, as you will, no less than three 
Deans — a fact which confers a kind of distinction on you, although one of 
small usefulness. The other two. Dr. Brown and Dr. Taggart, join me in 
welcoming: you to the ranks of the noblest profession. 

You have learned much, but if, as I belieye, you have acquired wisdom 
also, you stand at the threshold of your career humble in the realization 
that the greatest learning experience of all is now about to begin. I 
earnestly hope that you will remain scholars always — acknowledging - that 
in spite of the accomplishments of medical science in the past hundred 
years, we can hold and examine and understand only a handful of the 
vast fields around us. 

If, in my role as your Dean, I may confer a benediction on you, it is this: 
may the spirit of enquiry be with you all the days of your life. 

Charles S. Cameron, M.D. 



Hahnemann Medical College 






We, the Class of 1958, feel a profound 
sense of pride in dedicating this 1958 Medic 
to Dr. Armand W. Angulo, a man whose life 
and work epitomized all that is Medicine. Dr. 
Angulo was born in Cibara, Cuba, in 1900. 
After completing- his training in Cuba and at 
The University of Kansas, where he was 
awarded his Doctorate in Anatomy in 1926, 
he gained an appointment as a Fellow of the 
Wistar Institute of Anatomy in Philadelphia. 
Here he remained from 1928 through 1940, 
during which time he became an Associate 
Member of the Institute and made many 
noteworthy contributions to the field of 
neuro-embryological research. After holding 
the position as Biologist and Pathologist at 

the Biochemical Research Foundation in Del- 
aware from 1940 through 1942 he was ap- 
pointed Associate Professor of Anatomy at 
Hahnemann and in 1953 became Professor of 
Anatomy. To us he was one possessed with 
the attributes of greatness. His knowledge, 
sincerity, and enthusiasm served well to se- 
cure us when our quest for learning began. 
His ready smile, rich sense of humor, and 
genuine humility lightened the many pages. 
And now as we leave the halls of Hahnemann 
his faith and encouragement remain to in- 
spire us. His memorial rises high in temporal 
tribute but higher in the intangible gratitude 
and affection of his school and his bovs. 

Assistant Dean 

Under his firm direction, during the recent 
transition of administrative leadership, Dean 
Taggart stabilized the continued growth of 
our Hahnemann. His unselfish devotion at 
this critical time filled the breach with able 
leadership, mature good judgment, and fore- 
sight. We commend his genuine enthusiasm 
and admire the loyalty of his efforts. May his 
faith in us, the students, be reflected in real 
contributions to the growth of medicine. 


Former Dean of Hahnemann 

Hahnemann is very proud of our former 
Dean, Charles L. Brown. For it was his lead- 
ership and foresight that has resulted in the 
firm institution that we now have. We, the 
Hahnemannians, will be ever grateful for the 
issue of his great labors. 





With special tribute the Class of 1958 takes great pleasure in being able 
to wish and express their thanks and appreciation to Miss Alice C. Britt, 
Registrar. Her sincere and considerate nature and calm efficiency belie the 
weight of administrative responsibility which she so capably bears. 

We feel that Hahnemann is fortunate to have the services of Miss Britt. 
In addition to performing her duties so adeptly, she continues to convey an 
attitude of friendliness and sense of team spirit which keynotes the atmosphere 
of our school. These attributes are all the more noteworthy when you consider 
a few of the innumerable duties she must perform. Miss Britt enrolls the 
freshman class, collects tuition, receives records and dispenses grades, deter- 
mines class standings, makes up class schedules, assigns classrooms, keeps 
Veterans Administration records, is secretary to the senior faculty, takes care 
of licensure forms, and prepares transcripts. 

Miss Britt is now in her eleventh year at Hahnemann. The Class of 1958 
is grateful for her sincere, friendly, and able assistance, and wish her many 
years of health and happiness.

Advisor of the 1958 MEDIC 


In order to obviate the trite and avoid the affectatious, it would be 
almost necessary to eliminate completely the writing of an editorial. For 

through the years, repetition has relegated to rodomontade and grandilo- 
quent vapidity the majority of those esoteric expiations which come to 
the fore at this time. Yet these, nevertheless, still embrace or contain 
within themselves the illustrious ideals to which we should adhere and 
aspire. The charges that must necessarily be propounded, whether or not 
they might possess the ring of superficial sentimentality or thrasonical 
bombast because of the incondite manner in which they are presented, are, 
nevertheless an ineluctable integral. The cogent concatenation of ideas that 
should predominate and the ponderous prolixities that must be eschewed 
to attain a clear, concise, and germane presentation, increases in magnitude 
the difficile dehiscence of the inner mind and deters the elutriation of our 
thoughts. Hence, jejunity may interpose. But each of us, employing the 
flail of good judgment and common sense, may easily separate the chaff 
of vacuity from the wheat of wisdom. 

Having reached the incunabula of our careers, we are presently imbued 
with, emotional ebullience that accompanies the attainment of such a long 
sought and difficulty obtained goal. This, too, has now not only become a 
pylon marking the course of our profession which we have reached and 
passed, but also a. sign-post pointing out the various pathways in which 
we may direct ourselves as each of us seeks out that phase of medicine to 
which he deems himself best suited and adapted. 

Here at Hahnemann, a foundation was laid upon which can be con- 
structed whatever edifice in the field of medicine to which we aspire, 
whether it be the compact high spired tower of specialization or the lower 
gabled but more broadly spread house of general medicine. 

Before we plunge haphazardly and headlong into our chosen fields, 
let us hesitate awhile to equilibrate and orient ourselves so that with 
nothing but the utmost certainty will we wend our way among and with 
our medical confreres to the ultimate and successful achievement of our 
desires. Let us not be so over eager to make our mark that we miss the 
target completely. Here, more than in any other field, the steady hand of 
mental and emotional stability is inevitably incommensurate as an ancon of 
our abstract armamentarium. 

We cannot let the pettiness of puerile hauteur make us lose perspective 
of our professional purpose by causing us to abandon that certain degree 
of humility so vitally necessary to the maintenance of good relationships. 

Let us not become overbearing in our attitude towards those who 
seek us out for physical and psychical solace. 

"As we therefore have opportunity, let us do good unto all men, and 
let us not become weary of well-doing for in due season we shall reap if 
we faint not."

Clinical Notes of 



One hundred and eight bright-eyed and bushy-tailed freshmen, 
known informally as "Ludwick's Lush Group" gathered together earlv 
in September 1954 to listen to Dean Brown tell them what medical 
school is all about. These neophytes, casting furtive glances at the 
personages seated around them and blanching at the sight of Phi Beta 
Kappa keys dangling from several key chains, were to a man wonder- 
ing how long they would last before the axe fell; not daring even to 
think of eventually becoming seniors. 

But they were also puzzled over what texts to buy, what fraternity 
to join, and how to get the maximum of grades with a minimum of 
work. They threw questions unmercifully at the upper classmen, never 
ceasing to be amazed with what aplomb these fortunate creatures 
parried their questions and gave such profound, intelligent, thought- 
provoking, and totally irrelevant answers. 

When classes finally began, things actually seemed to ease up, 
although tremors were to be noted in the hands trying frantically to 
jot down every word uttered by the super-being in the front of the 
lecture room most of which seemed to be in some unintelligible 

It almost began to be fun to cut up the cadavers, even though 
each freshman thought his was the fattest in the anatomy lab. Even 
in histology, where the professors did their best to confuse everyone, 
some of the blurry outlines under the microscope began to resolve 
themselves into reasonable facsimiles of the illustrations in the text 

Then suddenly the tranquil atmosphere became again ominous 
with the approach of the first test. Spasticity was the order of the day ; 
some being more spastic than others, especially evident by the fact 
that they seemed to have discovered the secret of perpetual motion in 
their erratic dashes from one dissecting table to another bemoaning 
their impending doom and begging for "nuggets." Mnemonics reigned 
supreme, and everywhere could be heard "on old Olympics Towering 
tops" or "the lingual nerve took a swerve," etc. Somehow this hurdle 
was also surmounted and the process of acclimation continued with the 
unofficial class motto of "This too shall pass" resounding from all lips. 

A small energetic man who delivered rapid lectures while fran- 
tically gesticulating with both arms soon burst upon the scene, and 
before his intentions became apparent, the neuroanatomy course was 
down to its last days. Frantic preparations were made for the final 

The second semester soon proved to be somewhat of c. vacation. 
Lectures were delivered in various monotones and the lab was ruled 
over by a possessive, cold, calculating keeper of the keys. 

The discovery was made of the ping-pong table in the student 
lounge, the fraternities were beginning to function, and Herm's was 
conveniently available for frequent "Coffee Breaks," all of which helped 
to maintain the morale and keep medical school from being completely 
biological. The Biochemistry Dept. aided in spreading good cheer, 
though several students became suspicious when the instructors were 
cheerful even when handing out counter-espionage fashion, those low, 
low grades. 

This time, finals proved to be no obstacle as the class had by now 
become hardened veterans of several campaigns, the majority of which 
had left the teaching staff stunned and reeling, much to their own 
surprise. Time was available to plan for summer vacation even while 
studying. The sophomore year loomed ahead, and in preparation for it, 
most of the students planned to spend the summer resting.

Orientation days were soon over. Bone boxes and 
other paraphernalia having been assigned, we 
"shifted into high gear" with gross anatomy, histol- 
ogy, and neuroanatomy. 

As the leaves turned from green to their charac- 
teristic autumn colors, we were occupied with mak- 
ing neuroanatomy models, drawing histology plates, 
and "getting the concepts." Christmas vacation was 
an anxiously awaited pleasure. 

Second semester made the long walk to gross lab 
even longer as we began physiology. But this was 
only one of our newly acquired problems; experi- 
ments that could be done in an hour took twice that 
long to set up.

Months passed as we systematically dis- 
membered the cadavers. We had all the ad- 
vantages that science could offer ; red nerves, 
blue arteries, uninjected veins. 

Gross lab was always with us; foods had 
the added seasoning of "cadaver juice." 
Recognizing our classmates became increas- 
ingly easy ; all we had to do was to get within 
three feet. 

Most of us began to develop better night 
vision, or got no notes in many lectures. 
Colored pencils were often an asset in copy- 
ing drawings, but more often they were a 
liability ! 

The Pearl's impromptu lectures on applied 
anatomy will be remembered by all of us. 
Even the married men listened.

Biochemistry will always have special con- 
notations. There was the easy method many 
of us used to clean glassware ; of course, this 
is very bad for the breakage fees that we 
had to pay. 

Technique was all important, especially 
when doing the unknowns. "It can't be that ; 
the test was negative for rhamnose!" 

Most of us tasted many of the chemicals 
in the lab although quite unintentionally; 
the pipettes just seemed too short. 

A basic problem for all of us was trying 
to remember with what group we belonged 
at any particular time.

Clinical Notes of 


After the surviving members of the Freshman year were duly 
acknowledged and a brief moment of silence was held for the members 
who had been amputated from the group, the Sophomore year which 
was to prove a long, drawn out, uphill struggle was underway; the 
all too rapid transition from idyllic summer retreats to the staccato 
tempo of the lecture room was uncomfortably accomplished ; sensoria, 
a mere week before having been filled with scents of lavender and clean 
earth, were once again clouded with the heavenly aroma of formal- 

The Department of Pathology did their utmost to dispell any 
illusions that were held as to the possibility of an easy year, as lectures 
were replete with blood-curdling glares, chilling moments of silence, 
and no smoking enforcement. For changes of pace the lecture series 
included several on the philosophy of Pathology and some mystery 
sessions of kodachrome slides. The class became expert on Tstsuga- 
mushi disease and could recite the big three (tumor, TB and stone) at 
the drop of a pickled kidney. A desperate attempt was made by the 
professor to make laboratory technicians of the class; but after the 
arms of hordes of students were masses of hematomas, white cell 
counts on any given specimen of blood ranged from to 100,000 and 
all urinalysis were reported as normal, even these intrepid lectures 
were forced to admit failure. 

Microbiology provided a brief, but pleasant, interlude. Except for a 
few stabbings and streakings, all lab work was wisely left to the techni- 
cians. Many students were noted to have finished the course speaking 
with a Southern drawl. 

With wild African jungle cries and gutteral chants of "quiet 
please," Pharmacology swept into the picture. The class was soon 
futilely studying for surprise quizzes specifically designed to be impos- 
sible to pass. 

Others were seen sitting patiently on high stools copying im- 
measurable amounts of essential information from innumerable charts ; 
still other groups did some original research on projects that had 
been original for each of the past twenty years. Every minute of every 
day was fully occupied. If not piecing together a tinker-toy apparatus, 
a student could be found self-anesthetizing himself with an electro- 
encephalograph, carting dead rabbits to the chief undertaker, or per- 
haps on his knees at eleven o'clock at night desperately praying for his 
cat to finally expire so that he could go home. 

Interspersed for some unexplainable reason throughout the year 
were lectures and picnic excursions apparently sponsored by taxpayers 
and presided over by the Board of Public Health. Many guests came 
to speak to the class, telling them about garbage disposal, smog, 
socialism, and 108 degree F. water rinses. A great feeling of rapport 
grew in many for the overseer of this subject — a warm-hearted, quiet 
mannered, considerate Simon Legree. Classes soon became so popular, 
because of the essential subject matter and the matchless way in 
which it was'delivered, that the students began to stay away in droves. 
Then came the big moment — the first exposure to real, live patients. 
This experience came at a very opportune time, for minds were 
uncluttered with football or basketball scores; the classes having dis- 
covered that their private bookie had bought his own private basket- 
ball team with funds they had unwittingly donated, and the class party 
having come to anticipated state of amiable incandescence. The class 
was well prepared for these patients, being able to discuss intelligently 
with them Loa Loa and sewage drains and knowing how to prescribe 
large quantities of curare. A glimpse had been provided of the Junior 
year, nevertheless, and the students were all set.

Now that Anderson is an impressive paper- 
weight, the class of 1960 looks back with 
jaundiced eye upon day after day of scintil- 
lating slides, formaldehyded fistulae, and 
gangrenous gross specimens. 

Breathtaking color was added to dull, drab 
afternoons by an interminable parade of 
Kodachromes that often resembled a Picasso 
masterpiece; plus student presented medical 
papers in which pin-point topics were covered 
. . . such as Neutropenia in the African 
Elephant and its Relationship to Gastric 
Carcinoma (Bantu, et al, 1889). 

One syndrome will never be forgotten. It 
occurred in the class sporadically, always 
following lectures, and consisted of diffuse 
pain in the gluteal region, claw hand, and 
various mental aberrations, usually accom- 
panied by headache. 

Let it be said, however, that this course 
was a source of constant stimulation. Here 
indeed is the groundwork of medicine.

Clinical Notes of 


After two years spent in learning what was loosely termed "basic 
medicine," we were anxious to learn how to become doctors. We eagerly 
attacked the abundance of patients abandoned to our tender mercies, 
astounding them with the never-ending stream of questions and trying 
to persuade them that one always needed at least two needle punctures 
to obtain blood. 

Occasionally we managed to attend the morning lectures, in the 
austere atmosphere of which we were alternately impressed with 
doctrine such as "No stomach, no ulcer," bullied into learning which 
way a lung abscess points, held spellbound by the longest possible one- 
hour lecture on cardiac arrhythmias, and introduced to dysfunctional 
uterine bleeding, uterine bleeding. 

Contact was again made with the staff's chief florist and his man 
Friday as they entertained with wildly beating tapes and an occasional 
live specimen to auscultate. We also encountered a walking medical 
encyclopedia and decided that perhaps we had a little medicine to learn. 

Surgery was notable for the decrease in the amount of paper work 
and the increase in physical exertion. We soon learned that retractors, 
although ostensibly designed to provide the surgeon with a good 
operative field, were better termed "idiot sticks" and were far more 
suitable for supporting a tired medical student. A garrulous neuro- 
surgeon kept the class in stitches while other members of the staff 
either made us feel "Big Brother was watching" as every move was 
observed until the triumphant cry of "contamination" could burst forth 
or else impatiently wondered why we couldn't do a Whipple after three 
years of medical school. We were introduced to surgical specialties and 
it was rumored that one student somehow managed to witness one of 
these operations. The main attraction of urology proved to be a patient 
with priapism who proved to be the most envied man in the hospital. 
However, surgery was most famous for its final examination, reputedly 
devised with the help of the Spanish Inquisition and passed on from 
year to year to frustrate succeeding classes of Hahnemann juniors. 

The members of the class felt most trampled-on while on obstetrics. 
Here we received dogma from the summit only after it had descended 
through a rigid chain of command of which we were clearly lowest, 
ranking lower than nurses, orderlies and elevator operators. We did 
such tasks as timing contractions and recording pulses. However, our 
word was highly respected, for if we desperately attempted to indicate 
to the resident that our patient was about to deliver, the patient 
invariably did ... six hours later. Probably the most valuable lessons 
learned on obstetrics were not to trust anybody, especially with an 
engraved tongue depressor; and being awake for seventy-two long 
hours is no excuse for failing an examination. 

By far the most stimulating course was pediatrics, where the 
dynamic lecturers enthusiastically discussed such subjects as growth 
and development or perhaps diseases of the newborn. We soon were 
engaged in trying to outwit the little people who besieged us. but 
eventually succumbed to the inevitable hopelessness of the situation, 
and admitting our complete inability to establish even a reasonable 
diagnosis merely struggled to at least preserve the time-hallowed 
doctor-monster relationship. 

In the junior year we had our first extensive experience with the 
affiliations, better known as Siberia and Outer Mongolia, but to do more 
than merely mention them would give a mistaken impression of their 
comparative importance. The class had come a long way from their 
baptism under fire as naive freshmen, and as they became more 
hardened, cynical and fatalistic, and acquired a deep sense of futility, 
it was apparent they were ready for the senior year.

The year 1955 saw an eager group of Freshmen 
enter Hahnemann. It soon became evident that col- 
lege was only a light work-out compared to the heavy 
task that was ahead. 

The Freshmen year was quite rewarding in spite 
of all the hard work. We were told to expect a much 
more difficult time in our second year, but this did 
not seem possible. However, the impossible soon be- 
came a reality. Pathology, which incidentally offers 
more hours than any other course of its kind in the 
country, was, to many, the most fascinating course 

Then came April fourth. The white lab coat was

Whether coming at the beginning, middle, or end of the 
school year, medicine required the most of everything 
including knowledge. Patients were questioned diligently 
and incessantly regarding every facet of their existence 
from intrauterine fetal life through their usually stormy 
existence up to the C.C. Total length of time including that 
masterpiece of medical literature to be included in the chart 
usually consumed eons of ages so that anyone who finished

Professor and Head of the Division of 

Pediatrics, or as it was affectionately called 
"midget medicine," presented a new problem. 
Occasionally, we had seen some patients who 
were unable to give us a history; but this 
was a rule not the exception in pediatrics. 
The parents were able to help us with the 
history but this was not always very accur- 
ate. If the child was in pain our only response 
to physical examination was a cry. One thing 
which became apparent was the importance 
of a good physical examination. 

Our eyes, ears, and hands became even 
more important as diagnostic tools than they 
had been on any other service.

Clinical Notes of 


After three years of being called "doc" by Benny, the proprietor 
of the renowned Ben's Delicatessen, the class members were beginning 
to feel almost like physicians; but this feeling soon flickered out as it 
was discovered that after three years of constant work and struggle 
the senior year was apparently designed to apply the coupe de grace. 
Eyes previously glued to textbooks and voluminous notes now gazed 
balefully at the latest adventure of Cheyenne or Wyatt Earp, or even 
peered stonily into the bottom of an empty glass. Occasionally, a 
malicious underclassman precipitated a burst of energy by mentioning 
"ten autopsies," but these instances were rare. Most students were 
extremely reluctant to disturb the lethargic seniors. 

The class occasionally attended clinics covering all the various 
fields of medicine and became specialists, examining only the part of 
the patient related to that specialty. The patients were efficiently 
directed to their proper clinics by the cashier. Several students ques- 
tioned the system after an aphasic woman with lupus erythematosis 
and a fractured clavicle was directed to gynecology clinic, presumably 
because she was a woman, whereupon the student dutifully informed 
her that she was pregnant. Fortunately, this shock promptly cured her 
aphasia, because the student had overlooked a hysterectomy ten years 
ago. The class concluded that the doorman was perhaps best qualified 
to apportion the patients after all. 

The class discovered that it was once again privileged to grace 
the hospital under the benevolence of a new regime. Again the student 
drew blood, took long intricate histories, and even drew duty on the 
weekends; the unfortunate junior students having to cover during 
the week. To compensate for this advantage several non-essential 
clinics such as cardiology and diabetes were removed and awarded to 
the oppressed junior class. However, the seniors were expected to 
participate enthusiastically in hvpertension clinic and rapidlv learn the 
merits of such drugs as X1978ZQ and PL954TR which they would 
soon be confidently prescribing to their own patients. 

This year the affiliation played a major role in their lives. Several 
were far-flung. They were sent to Hamburg, apparently to get tuber- 
culosis if they had somehow avoided contracting the disease during 
the first three years. Others made the long journey to Sayre, being 
sent by their married classmates whose wives were especially per- 
suasive or were newlywed'. Once there, the student found himself in 
the wonderful predicament of having to entertain 200 assorted nurses. 
Word has returned that the student usually gave a good account of 
himself. Other affiliations were within the lively, progressive city of 
Philadelphia and although less desirous, still afforded them with time 
to perfect their bridge games. 

The class proved they were still capable of thinking ahead by 
applying for internships. This usually started out as a well planned, 
intelligent endeavor, but as time for the final selection approached, 
many students were seen flipping coins or consulting gypsy fortune 
tellers. Somehow they had survived four long years. As they looked 
back it seemed like four long years ago that they had been bright- 
eyed freshmen. Now, broken in spirit, sadly disillusioned, haunted 
by a hacking cough, and convinced of their imcompetence, they were 
ready to face the practice of medicine. But for some unfathomable 
reason they felt themselves physicians, and, still possessed of a glim- 
mering shadow of their former supreme confidence, they were sure 
they had enough strength to survive whatever may yet face them. 
They had made their pilgrimage and trusted that now the world 
awaited them.

The Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity 
was founded at Cornell University Medical 
School in 1904. Beta Zeta Chapter at Hahne- 
mann was chartered in 1929, and is now 
numbered among the forty-seven under- 
graduate chapters and thirty-three graduate 
clubs throughout the country. 

The Chapter's activities have ranged from 
several well attended parties to a monthly 
series of scientific meetings, at which mem- 
bers of the staff are invited to present talks 
on topics of current interest. The peak of 
the year's social activities is the annual Five 
Chapter Dance, attended by members of the 
city's Graduate Club and four undergraduate 
chapters, held this year in the Grand Ball-

Phi Alpha Gamma of Phi Chi was installed 
in 1948 when the former Phi Alpha Gamma 
Medical Fraternity became part of Phi Chi. 
Today Hahnemann's chapter of the world's 
largest medical fraternity has as its mem- 
bers about one quarter of the undergraduates 
and the same fraction of the alumni in the 
form of the Phi Alpha Gamma Alumni Asso- 
ciation. This situation has resulted in the 
chapter's becoming the center of social life 
at Hahnemann. With its permanent house 
at 1624 Summer Street, Phi Chi houses some 
thirteen students each year and furnishes 
ample resources for study, relaxation, and 
an atmosphere of fraternal companionship 
to its many members, students, and alumni.

Phi Lambda Kappa Fraternity actually 
stands for the Medical Students Aid Society, 
a society dedicated to the financial assistance 
of any medical student anywhere in the 
country. The main function of the organiza- 
tion is service to the medical student, and 
once again this year it has successfully 
served this purpose. 

Alpha Beta Chapter has enjoyed a most 
successful year taking profit from such ac- 
tivities as lectures, dinners, parties, dances, 
tutoring sessions, and above all, the Golden 
Anniversary Convention celebrated this year 
at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel. 

The Alpha Beta Chapter wishes to extend 
to its graduating seniors and the entire 
graduating class its heartiest congratula-

The Alpha Beta Chapter of Alpha Epsiloii 
Iota was founded at Hahnemann in 194-1 
and is part of a national women's medical 
fraternity which was founded at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan in 1890. Its purpose is 
to promote good fellowship and to maintain 
a high, level of scholarship among female 
medical students. To accomplish this, each 
incoming freshman is contacted by a mem- 
ber prior to entering Hahnemann and is 
feted at a welcoming dinner. Also, files are 
maintained of graduates' evaluations of

Aesculapian Society 

Alpha Omega Alpha 

The Aesculapian Society was founded by 
its first sponsor, Dr. Thomas M. Snyder, who 
believed and practiced that "The first duty 
of the teacher is to his students ; if a teacher 
thinks otherwise, he should not teach." His 
original intention was to bring together con- 
genial men to informally discuss the history 
of medicine, both fact and fiction. This is 
being carried out today by the members and 
Dr. Frank Tropea and Dr. Paul Grotzinger, 

The Zeta Chapter was established at 
Hahnemann in 1952. The group sponsors an 
annual lectureship, a dinner, and is active 
in promoting interest in undergraduate re- 
search. Membership is based on scholarship 
and personal integrity.

Student Institute 

Inter-Fraternity Council 

The Student Institute is composed of the 
four class presidents and two elected repre- 
sentatives from each class. 

The purpose of the Student Institute is to 
represent the student body of Hahnemann 
in its dealings with faculty and administra- 
tion and to determine how the student funds 
should be used. 

The series of lectures by prominent medi- 
cal men, an innovation this year at Hahne- 
mann, was sponsored by the Student Insti- 

The Interfraternity Council is composed 
of the president and vice-president of each 
of the five medical fraternities at Hahne- 
mann. It functions as a regulatory agency 
setting forth the rules governing rushing and 
the general conduct of the fraternities. It 
also serves as the representative for frater- 
nity members in dealing with the other 
student organizations as well as the school 
administration. It annually sponsors a re- 
ception for the incoming freshman class in 
behalf of all the fraternities.

Women's Medical Society MacFadyen Gynecological Society 

The present Women's Medical Society is 
an outgrowth of an organization formed in 
1942 for the purpose of promoting friend- 
ship between women students and giving 
them a voice in college affairs. Since 1954 
the group has been a member branch of the 
American Medical Women's Association. All 
women students at Hahnemann automati- 
cally become members and receive the Journal 
of the A.M.W.A. as well as attend its Phila- 
delphia branch meetings. 

The Gynecologic Society, founded in 1941 
to honor the late Earl B. Craig, M.D., and 
now bearing the name of Bruce V. MacFad- 
yen, M.D., professor of Gynecology, is pres- 
ently the oldest and one of the most active 
academic groups at Hahnemann. Composed 
of students of medicine demonstrating inter- 
est in gynecologic topics and meeting month- 
ly, it has been privileged to have had as 
honored speakers men of local and national

Fraternities at Hahnemann play a very important role 
in the lives of the medical students. The purpose of these 
organizations is to foster among medical students and 
physicians a spirit of brotherhood, moral support and 
mutual aid. 

Each brother strives to keep honor and spirit high 
and to maintain a desirable scholastic level for the gratifi- 
cation of himself and his fraternity. 

Throughout the school year the fraternities sponsor 
annual lectureships, scientific meetings, stag affairs, and 
house parties.

There is dramatic evidence today of the far flung role of science in 
man's conquest of his environment. While science compresses the infinite 
reaches of outer space, it also seeks control of the tiny virus. 

Thus, the thirst for knowledge — the arena of pure research — may 
send us in many directions. No matter what the immediate goal may be, 
however, the ultimate aim is a better life for everyone. 

In the past, man has invariably been the beneficiary of an era of 
great scientific development. The hope is universal that he will benefit 
in the future.

Roland's Textbook of Anatomy 
by Frankenstein et al. 

Intricate and picturesque dissection de- 
scriptions with Dr. Frankenstein doing an 
excellent piece of work in his translation 
from the original Transylvania manuscript — 
the painstaking research necessary for a book 
of this scope, especially notable in the chap- 
ters on the heart and blood vessels, with 
extremely vivid depictions of juicy succulent 
lymph nodes — authoritative and realistic 
information concerning the art of grave- 
digging as a method again coming into vogue 
in the procuring of specimens — . Professor 
Igor's chapter is an added feature and indeed 
a masterpiece — ■ not recommended for any 
reader with angina. 


by Hans Christian Anderson 

Interesting collection of fairy tales mostly 
dealing with the supposed ability of the 
storyteller to make accurate diagnoses from 
microscopic specimens — very persuasively 
written so that the reader almost feels that 
some of the feats accomplished might be 
possible. Chapter on bubonic plague especially 
good reading, being written in allegorical 
fashion with the Black Knight (plague) 
finally being vanquished by the Good Fairy 
(soap and water). The content tends to be- 
come commercial in parts, with plugs for 
various antibiotics and other drugs, but 
mostly is an absorbing piece of literature. 
Book is especially useful as a paperweight. 

Mention should be made of the vastlj'- 
more popular book club condensation of the 
above manuscript, known as "Little Ander- 
son." This book has managed to eliminate 
much of the superfluous material in Pathol- 


by J. Gumbescia 

A new approach to the art of baby- 
catching — written especially for medical stu- 
dents with sound advice on the relative 
merits of various stimulants that might keep 
one from falling asleep — special chapter for 
residents and interns showing ninety-nine 
ways to put the blame on the medical student 
in case of a precipitate labor — guest author 
Y. Berra has included his chapter, which 
must certainly be committed to memory, on 
the various stances that can be assumed by 
the obstetrician to guard against the Dropped 
Baby Syndrome — good reading for a sleep- 
less night. 

Textbook of Gynecology 
by F. Manville 

The author demonstrates an all-inclusive 
knowledge of female anatomy. Develops some 
interesting theories on etiology of dysmen- 
orrhea, etc. Book is spotty in parts, especially 
the section on dyfunctional uterine bleeding. 
Arguments are presented to show why the 
female breast should fall into the field of 
Gynecology, rather than Surgery. A section 
not to be missed is that concerning the classi- 
fication of the classification of ovarian 
tumors, an inovation in Gynecologic litera- 
ture. Recommended for adults only. 

Textbook of Surgery 

by Jack the Ripper 

First part of the book is a Horatio Alger 
rags to riches story about an orderly who 
watches a few operations and soon decides 
to perform them himself, eventually becom- 
ing a surgeon of some note (although not 
bothering to go through the formality of 
attending a medical school). A revealing in- 
sight into the background of a great surgeon, 
the memoirs having been smuggled out of 
his cell and loaned to the publisher by the 
courtesy of Gettum Magazine. The remainder 
of this text deals with various operative pro- 
cedures such as: the Ripper I and Ripper II. 
Good section on the art of tying Granny 
knots. Very valuable final chapter showing 
the newest methods of retractor holding, that 
is a must for every medical student. 

Textbook of Pediatrics 
by Mother Goose 

Medicine for little people — a complete sur- 
vey of the field with emphasis on commonly 
encountered conditions as: Niemann-Pick 
Disease; Acrodynia; and Pseudohypertrophic 
Muscular Dystrophy. The book shows prom- 
ise in the beginning, presenting some excit- 
ing normal growth and development figures, 
but is rather dull after that; however, part 
on methods of administration of Gelesmium 
and Ferrumphos — surprise ending. 

Crime and Punishment 
by J. Mooyer et al 

Thrilling adventure story of mystery and 
intrigue — psychological novel dealing with 
the frenzied attempts of a medical student, 
caught not drawing bloods on his patient 
before 8:00 a.m.; to escape both his own 
inner remorse and the relentless pursuit of 
a group of men sworn to capture him — the 
chase sequence being especially well written, 
almost approaching the fearsome torture 
scene in the last chapter in intensity of 
emotion — should become a medical classic.
