WILLIAM S. STONE 
M.S., M,D., D.Soc. 




When Dr. William S. Stone was named Dean 
of the School of Medicine on July 1, 1955, he 
succeeded Dr. H. Boyd Wylie. He came from Walter Reed Army Medical Center where, as 
a Colonel, he served as Commandant of Army Medical Graduate School. He held this posi- 
tion until April 3, 1954 when he was named as Director of Medical Education and Research 
at the University. 

Dr. Stone is well known through the field of medicine. He won acclaim in 1943 when an 
important invasion of Italy was endangered by the spread of typhus fever. With the aid of 
many teams, he organized control measures with a then new drug, DDT. More recently he 
instituted measures for the elimination of Bang's disease in cattle, a serious disease in humans 
if contracted. 

In accepting the office of Dean, Dr. Stone emphasized that he had no intention of giving 
up his previous job at school. With the cooperation of the Departments, he intends to con- 
tinue the expansion of reasearch and encourage more students to take an active part. 




HUGH RAYMOND SPENCER. M.D. 
Professor oj Pathology and Head of the Department 



DEDICATID^ 



Dr. Hugh R. Spencer has officially announced his retirement as Professor of Pathology, 
effective July 1, 1956. Born in 1888 in Baltimore City, he grew up in the country, where he 
acquired the love of fishing and hunting. He graduated from the Baltimore Medical School in 
1910 and was added to the University of Maryland Staff somewhat later when the two schools 
merged. After studying physiology for one year. Dr. Spencer redirected his interests to 
Pathology. He studied tliis subject at Johns Hopkins for two years and, later, during World 
War I, served in the United States Army for thirteen months as a Pathologist. After this war, 
he returned to become Professor of Pathology at University of Maryland in 1921. 

In addition to his academic duties. Dr. Spencer is also a member of the Admission Com- 
mittee who interviews each student before he is officially accepted into medical school. With 
his keen insight and judgment, Dr. Spencer is able to evaluate a man's capabilities and 
personality without his being aware of the observation. 

The Clinicians, as well as the students, will remember him also for his amazing ability to 
uncover bafiling cases for Saturday morning C.P.C.'s. Many times has he demonstrated a dry 
wit as he reads the "Pathological Diagnosis." 

We, the Senior Class of 1956, proudly dedicate our yearbook to Dr. Hugh Raymond 
Spencer and wish him continued successes and good health in the many years ahead.

After four years of classes, clinics, 
wards and labs, the once remote feeling 
of "walking alone" becomes imminent. 
The sense of responsibility which is care- 
fully nurtured through these years will 
now be tested and remain forever a part 
of the Doctor. No longer are formal 
quizes, given by the instructor, the meas- 
ure of success. His actions now must 
stand before the most critical judge of 
all . . . the patient and his family!

Upon cnloriiig Modical School, the slu- 
deiil is faced with many seemingly unsur- 
monntable obstacles. Anatomy, Histology, 
and Biochemistry — to name a few — pre- 
sent many uneasy hours. These soon 
melt, however, when the patient contact 
is first made and reasons for his training 
become more evident. These arc the 
years when lectures and books predomi- 
nate. But each man realizes that every 
hour brings him closer to his ultimate 
goal, the care of patients. 



FRESHMAN CLASS 



We like to think that the Class of 1959 is an iimisual one. At the present time there 
are 95 members in the Freshman Class. It is a well rounded class. The members represent 
no one age group, but range from the younger and greener college graduates to the older 
and wiser veterans. There are men who have already completed professional training, and 
men who are doing it for the first time. Of the 95 students, two are girls. These two young 
ladies are to be congratulated for standing up so courageously on the frequent occasions 
when we men lost sight of the fact that they are not 'just med students.' 

We are also unique in the fact that we are the first freshman class to go through the 
completely revised curriculum. Correlative and oral examinations replaced the older 
methods. Everyone will agree that the first four months were a harrowing experience and 
nothing would have been accomplished without the help of a most understanding staff. 

We also had our share of gaiety too. Class parties were held after exam periods at a 
nearby fraternity house. Each one would successfully rid himself of all emotions and these 
affairs showed the class spirit at its fullest. 

We learned many thousands of facts, and a great many concepts in this unforgetable 
year. Most important of all, we gained some small insight into what it means to be a 
doctor.

Frank H. J. Figge. Pli.D 
Professor oj Anatomy 



AMTDMY 



Gross Anatomy has traditionally been the 
medical school's greeting to the freshman stu- 
dent . . . and so it was to us. We acquired 
cadavers, dissecting kits, and a box of bones. 
Although we missed Dr. Uhlenhuth and his 
famous "Was ist your name?" we enjoyed 
the varied talents of Dr. Vernon Krahl, asso- 
ciate Professor of Anatomy, and his associ- 
ates. Dr. Karl Meek, Dr. Robert McCafferty, 
and Dr. Gladys Wadsworth. 

We committed to memory much of the sub- 
ject matter with the of some classical mnem- 
onics which cannot be conmiitted to print 
here, but one of Avhich was "viva Maryland!" 
for the brachial plexus. We can also joyously 
recall a fascia splitting safari into the depths 
of the pelvis. 



"Now, Sobotta says. 




A tense monirnt. 




When things were dull there 
were diverting little table quiz- 
zes. Completely relaxed and con- 
fident we approached the mid- 
term and final examinations. 

On lithotomy day tlie feminine 
members of the class were offi- 
cially initiated into the fraternity 
of medicine. 

Even our best friends could 
tell that even though we had left 
the lab behind, the scent lingered 
on. 

We discovered that anomalies 
to the rule are the rule, and that 
fascia can serve as a fine fac- 
simile of a nerve in time of need. 

Those of us lucky enough to 
come up with the more emaci- 
ated cadavers could laugh as our 
other classmates struggled.

HISTOLOGY 
IVEUROAMTOMY 



Under Dr. Frank H. J. Figge we acquired concepts 
of the primary organizer theory and otlier basic prin- 
ciples of Histology and Embryology. Tliese were re- 
ceived in our daily progress notes as were the drawings 
of slides. 

An ardent advocate of audiovisual aids Dr. Figge 
showed numerous films. These were valuable, for with- 
out them we could have never gotten our much needed 
sleep. 

During the course there were well timed practicals 
including a grand finale panorama which featured 
fifteen well chosen slides . . . one of which, a dorsal root 
ganglion, became an ovary for the few short minutes it 
was viewed. 

We were exposed to the art of being brief in our 
answers, especially to such questions as "Discuss your 
concept of the human body" in twenty words or less. 

Histology is now taught l)y Dr. Mack since Dr. Figge 
has moved to the head in tlie Anatomy department. 

In Neuroanatomy, which is now under llie direction 
of Dr. Walle Nauta, we disected the brain and memo- 
rized the spinal cord at various levels only to find that 
it is one of tlie most difficult subjects to retain. Despite 
comments to the contrary. Neuroanatomy and its asso- 
ciated clinical subjects will forever remain a mystery 
to most members of the class. 

You must know the normal, first.

To enter the Emljden-Myerhoff scheme or the Krebs cycle? 
. . . that was the question. Brandishing test tube we titrated 
and boiled, strained and filtered, but our reactions were 
not always according to the book. 

We were introduced to the fine art of the "finger stick" — 
and many white coats have the marks of those first attempts 
at blood sugar determination. BUN, NPN, — all seemed so 
far fetched at the time, but later became an important part 
of hospital procedure. It has become increasingly more 
apparent just how important these tests are. 

Under the direction of Dr. Eniil Sclimidt and his asso- 
ciates, Dr. Herbst and Dr. VanderLinde, we were led through 
the fields of metajjolism, endocrinology, physical chemistry, 
and many otlier facets that continue to be useful now. 

We were also given the annual lecture by Dr. Summerson 
on electrophoresis of blood, a field which is coming to the 
fore with each passing year. 

In retrospect, this department was one of the finest in our 
preclinical years . . . lioth for content and presentation.

PHYSIOLOGY 



Our association with the department of Physiology will 
be rememhered not only for the high calibre of the instruc- 
tion, but for the unique treatment of students with humanity 
and dignity. 

Dr. Amberson, Professor of Physiology, introduced us to 
the axon of the Giant Squid in the Neurophysiology section 
as well as keeping us informed on the activities at Woodshold 
Biological Station where he spends his summers. 

Dr. Dietrich Smith lectured on endocrinology and Dr. 
Ferguson's lucid lectures on the kidneys and heart were espe- 
cially appreciated. 

The laboratory work covered a wide range from mam- 
malian experiments to artificial respiration. BMR's to map- 
ping peripheral fields of vision. We usually smoked ourselves 
more than our kymograph drums and spent many a frus- 
trating hour trying to canulate the carotid artery. However, 
the visualization of the living organism in action for the first 
time was well worth the effort spent.

Most fingers are gram negative. 



MICHOBIDLOGY 



Under the astute direction of Dr. Frank Haclitel and 
his staff, we were introduced to the microscopic world 
of bacteria. It was during this part of our sophomore 
year that many of us developed ulcers, colitis, and 
anxiety neuroses from the frequent impossible quizes. 
At the end of the day there were many gram stained 
and not-too-actively motile embryobacteriologists with 
eyes weak from frying to decide whether or not the 
cuhure tuije contained acid or tlie gas forming organism. 

Our final week included what probably stands as 
the world's shortest, most intensive, course in mycology. 
Although feeling like candidates for a Ph.D. in "Bug- 
ology," we all weathered the storm and can now appre- 
ciate most of tlie maze of knowledge. 

We were well drilled in the basic transmission of 
disease . . . Fingers, Flies, and Fomites . . . and learned 
about incubation periods, immunization, and allergy. 
Many of us became very unfondly adherent to the cul- 
ture media placed before us, ])ut finally we were able 
to "plate out" anything that Howed.

Like many other departments. Bacteriology has under- 
gone a change. It is now titled Microbiology and headed 
by Dr. Charles Wisseman, Jr., a graduate of Southwest- 
ern Medical School in 1946. He has been particularly 
active in the field of Rickettsial diseases and has written 
many papers on the subject. 

Before leaving we would like to offer our thanks to 
Dr. Hachtel with a farewell wish for his continued 
health and happiness.

PATHOLOGY 



HUGH RAYMOND SPENCER, M.D. 
Projessor of Pathology 



Witli a groundwork of normal histology and physiology 
we Legan tlie study of the changes brought about by disease. 
During our sophomore year we received a series of lectures 
and laboratory periods dealing witli microscopic pathology. 
Inflammation and repair of tissue were stressed as basic to 
the understanding of pathologic changes. Although we needed 
"speed-o-graph" to cope with some of the lectures, and the 
required drawings in the lab proved that we were no Rem- 
brandts, it was basic and valuable instruction which we were 
soon to appreciate when facing clinical problems. 

As juniors we studied gross pathology utilizing specimens 
from the departments museum. We learned Nieman-Pick's 
Disease, Hemochromatosis, flea bitten kidneys, and . . . 
"When in doubt, call it Cloudy Swelling!" Correlations were 
made between microscopic pictures and clinical syndromes. 
We were required to attend a number of autopsies and write 
clinical pathologic discussions of these cases. The final prac- 
tical exam was especially memorable. 

Dr. Hugh Spencer, Professor of Pathology, is noted for his 
selection of cases for the departmental CPCs given on Satur- 
day mornings. Many a clinician has bitten the dust or risen 
to the heights during these most enjoyable periods. 

Among the instructors in the dejjartment were Dr. Dexter 
Reinian, Jr., Dr. John Wagner, Dr. Turner, and Dr. Wright.

lecture series, including Metchnikoff's conversation with 
Louis and William Withering's investigation of the

We hrushed up our rusty Latin and practiced Avriting 
prescriptions . . . struggled con\erting grains to mgm. 
"How many drops in a dram?" Having been admon- 
ished to learn the mechanisms of action oidv to discover 
in our fust quiz that dosages were important too. 

hi the laboratory we performed a variety of experi- 
ments demonstrating the actions of conmionly used 
drugs. Also during eacli laboratory period four of us 
faced by four jjrofessors tried to juggle teacups and 
questions sinuiltaneously in the institution of the "Tea 
Party." We received lectures and laboratory assistance 
from Dr. Cave, Dr. Burgeson, and other members of 
the department.. 

We turned actors for an afternoon during the filming 
of a short feature concerned with narcotic addiction and 
produced liy Dr. Krantz. Besides its teaching duties, the 
department is engaged in an active research program.

JUIVIDH CLASS 



MENTAL STATUS— CLASS OF 1957 

1. Appearance and Behavior: 

\Sell-clressed in short white jacket with gray flannels — ambulatory with a somewhat perplexed look on 

face — often noticed sleeping while sitting down. 
Attitude: Reacts well to situations, extremely friendly toward nurses. 
Behavior: Up at odd hours throughout the night — moves about constantly. Occasionally noted pulling hair 

while staring through microscope. 

2. Stream of Talk: Coherent and accelerated with occasional punning. Responds to questions with some hesitancy 

and misgiving, depending on question. 

3. Emotional Reaction: Extremely variable, ranging from extreme elation at Saturday noon to gross depression 

jMondav morning with tremors noticed at times. 

4. Thought Content: Examii)h(ji)ia is evident, accompanied by doubts, anxiety and extreme mental anguish. 

There is a compulsion to wash hands quite frequently while at work and there is a tendency to indulge 
in alcohol at leisure. Voices are heard shouting, "Domination is the only way" and odd round gray 
structures containing glittering particles are seen by the patient in 3C lab. There are no thoughts of 
grandeur of feelings of unreality although there is a feeling that the brain is dead at times. Time passes 
unusually rapid and there is the feeling that 1957 may not be too far away after all. 

5. Sensoriuni and Perception: Occasional confusion as to day and date. Recognition of nurses extremely acute. 

Consciousness is apparently normal although there are frequent bouts of drowsiness from 8:00 to 9:00 
a.m. Comprehension is average — once attention is obtained. 

6. Mental Grasp and Capacity: Remote events such as dance and holiday dates are easily remembered. There is 

a marked loss of recall in the field of anatomy. Ability to compare facts and ideas is excellent. There 
is a phenomenal ability to differentiate between married and single females, 85 and 75, and alcohol 
and water. 
IMPRESSION: Normal Junior Medical Student.

Professor of Medicine 



m 




Dick Plumb and Irv Pollack discuss therapy while Harry Ross prepares for next patient. 



Headed by Dr. Theodore E. Woodward and upheld by a staff of devoted physicians, the Depart- 
ment of Medicine offers one of the finest opportunities for learning in the entire clinical curriculum. 

As a Junior one lives the life of a clinical clerk; the seniors are acting interns. 

As students of the suljject of Internal Medicine, ward work and didactic teaching methods are 
combined to shape a living picture of moving pathology as seen I)y the eye, touched by the hand, and 
heard by the ear. 

The first exposure to a living, breathing human patient is often as shaking to the novice as his 
first introduction to a colder and less livid counterpart during the early days of his freshman year. 

The clinical clerk is a brave man, for he is armed only with material written in texts and pro- 
tected merely by the shallow (lc|)tli of his newly laundered white coat. He is a picture of insecurity, 
a statue with too tiianv lhimii)s, as, armed with stethoscope and sphig, he approaches his first patient. 

The delicate balance between })artial solenmity and expectant spasm in which the student of 
Medicine normallv exists is sometimes converted into a fibrillating nightmare. A short j)hrase spon- 
taneously delivered from his overseeing staff reminds him that he has been requested to deliver a 
"Case presentation." 

The senior, now an accuiiiplislicd clinician, bungles witli a polished air as he administers to his 
charges. 

The end result is the growth of a steady flying binl from what was previously a fledgling 
sparrow . . . and who will leave these halls to become a fledgling again in his attempt to someday 
attain the agility of an eagle. _-

HADIDLOGY 



Indispensible to every branch of medicine, 
the Xray has become one of our most valued 
diagnostic and therapeutic tools. In almost 
every service a weekly xray conference is held 
corrolating clinical findings with radiologic 
change. Ward instruction is also aimed in the 
same direction. 

The department of Radiology at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland is headed by Dr. John M. 
Dennis who is ably assisted by Dr. Charles 
Davidson, Dr. Robert Boudreau, and Dr. 
Harvey Startzman. An active radiotherapy 
division is headed by Dr. Bloedorn. 

During our two months at BCH in our 
junior year lectures on basic xray technique 
and reading are given with a supplement of 
fluoroscopy and its dynamics. 

In our senior year a week of intensive 
teaching in all phases is given covering all 
phases of the subject. These are presented at 
University Hospital.

JACOB ELLIS 

FINESINGER, M.D. 

Professor of Psychiatry. 



PSYCHIATRY 



The class of 1956 was the first to receive the full impact 
of the growing psychiatric orientation at Maryland. Headed 
by Dr. Jacob Finesinger and staff, it proved to be a course 
that was completely different. Featuring group discussion 
and case presentation, it was frequently accepted or rejected 
with frank emotion. Surrounded with the traditional memo- 
rization of medical school, here was a department that chal- 
lenged us to think and test for ourselves — to see our patients 
not only as animated anatomy and biochemical reactions, but 
as people with thoughts and emotions deeply influencing 
physiologic functions. 

Constant emphasis was placed on this viewpoint, not 
merely for those interested in Psychiatry, but for each to 
utilize daily, be his interest General Practice or Neuro- 
surgery. Teaching us to deal with the "whole patient" was 
the aim. But above all were to understand and have respect 
for the patient's feelings. 

During the first two years stress was placed on establish- 
ing a good Doctor-Patient relationship and good interview 
technique. In our junior and senior years visits to Sheppard 
Pratt, Spring Grove, Springfield, and the Psychiatric Institute 
at University Hospital introduced us to the management of 
the psychotic and severely neurotic patient. We saw demon- 
strations of insulin and electroshock therapy. Also we 
had the opportunity of working in the new Comprehensive 
Medicine Clinic.

Without question tlie department of Derma- 
tology is one of the more colorful aspects of our 
medical education. Headed by Dr. Harry Robin- 
son. Jr. and including Dr. R. C. V. Robinson, Dr. 
Bundick. Dr. Ellis, Dr. Hollander, and Dr. 
Zeligman, it represents a department of varied 
opinion and presentation. 

The stress on morphologic diagnosis caused 
many of us to go about muttering at most in- 
appropriate times, "Few to mimerous. discrete 
to confluent, well defined to ill defined, pink to 
red. macular to papular distributed on the face, 
neck, trunk, and extremities." During our senior 
year our interest was spurred by a series of daily 
quizes. Anyway we can now tell Tinea capitis 
from Pityriasis Rosea ... if there's a Wood's 
light handy. 

The department also presented a series of 
lectures on the yenereal diseases. At the students' 
request. Dr. Robinson, Jr. gaye a seminar on 
treatment of the more common skin disorders 
— something which has been grossly lacking in 
past years. Now each time we pass the detergent 
counter in the grocery store, we bow our heads 
in soleum thanksgiying for the new breath they 
have given our dermatologists.

PEDIATRICS 



J. EDMUND BRADLEY, M.D. 
Professor oj Pediatrics. 



The Department of Pediatrics has a long reputation 
for being academically well organized. The juniors 
as well as the seniors have access to the teaching 
cases. We would tear ourselves away from the chil- 
dren's TV and pick our way through the scattered 
toys to meet our new patients. Our friendships usually 
ended abruptly when we did our routine heel-stick. 
Daily seminars were also held by the members of the 
house staff.

As Seniors we worked in the Pediatric OPD vali- 
antly treating the cold, the common cold, the very 
common cold interspersed with a few cases of diar- 
rhea. We used vitamins and nose-drops in amazing 
quantities. With ten babies crying in unison we had 
a perfect symphonic background for our auscultatory 
efforts. We assisted in the Well-Baby Clinic juggling 
ounces of milk with tablespoons of carbohydrate and 
learned to give the DPT shots and vaccinations. 
Visits to the seizure, cardiac, and child guidance 
clinics were included in the program. We also spent 
some time in the newborn nursery becoming ac- 
quainted with the new arrivals. 

Dr. J. Edmund Bradley, as head of the department, 
has done much to develop the service to its present 
calibre. We remembered with fondness also Dr. Kay 
McGrady, Dr. Raymond Clemmens, Dr. A. H. Finkel- 
stein, Dr. Samuel Bessman, and the entire staff of 
residents. All were very helpful during our associa- 
tion with the department.

Acting Department Head, Dr. Paul Hackett, 
capably undertook the running of the Depart- 
ment of Anesthesia early in 1946, replacing Dr. 
Robert Dodd. 

As Junior students we had a course of lectures 
in the subject at BCH, and as Seniors spent 
a week as "anesthetic aids" in the operating 
rooms. 

The necessity of the patent airway and how 
to attain and maintain it were reviewed and fully 
discussed.

SURGERY

ROBERT W. BUXTON, M.D. 
Professor of Surgery 



Our association with the surgical department has 
been a close and instructive one over the last three 
years. We were first exposed to the elementary 
principles by Dr. Thurston Adams in our sophomore 
year. Perhaps the most important fundamental we 
learned — aside from the care and recognition of 
infection and vascular disorders — was punctuality. 

In our junior year came the memorable lecture 
series by Dr. Harry Hull, perhaps the best organ- 
ized series of instruction in our short medical

career. Each lecture was prefaced by an "eye 
opener" which added a certain amount of stimulus 
to the early hour. 

At Baltimore City Hospital we were exposed to 
a series of lectures and ward rounds for eight long 
weeks. It was also in this year that many of us did 
our first bit of surgery on Mr. Kaynyn Dogge — a 
rather important patient to whom we owe the 
greatest respect for the part he played in our 
medical education. 

Our night duty in the Accident Room was an 
educational experience in more fields than medi- 
cine, especially on Saturday nights. 

Our Senior year marked the beginning of a new 
regime at UH with a new department head, the 
very competent and intelligent Dr. Robert W. 
Buxton, from University of Michigan. Although 
thoroughly familiar with the field of Thoracic 
Surgery he is mainly concerned with the teaching 
and practice of General Surgery and the basic 
principles associated with it. Through his efforts 
the art of diagnostics became as important as the 
operative procedures performed.

OBSTETRICS 

and 
GYNECDLDGY 



'm 



The liistory of the growth and development of 
the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at 
University Hospital has been progressive and dra- 
matic. This year marked an important milestone 
— the consolidation of both departments into one 
under the professorship of Dr. Arthur Haskins who 
succeeded Dr. Louis H. Douglas, Professor of 
Obstetrics, and Dr. Mason Hundley, Professor of 
Gnyecology. He previously received his training 
at St. Louis Maternity and Barnes Hospitals and 
was Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecol- 
ogy at Washington University School of Medicine. 

Our Gynecologic careers began when we were 
Sophomores with a series of lectures by Dr. Diehl 
and Dr. Hundley which continued into the junior 
year. As Seniors we spent two weeks on the GYN 



Al Trucker studies pelvimetry.

service working in the clinics, wards, and in the

Diehl. Dr. Cornbrooks, Dr. Gardner, and staff. 
Perhaps one of the most valualde experiences was 
our visit to the Oncology Clinic where we became 
aware of the importance of biopsy and smear. 

Dr. Reese's Obstetrics lectures also began in our 
sophomore year. These were a pleasant and educa- 
tional iiUroduction to a '"fruitful"' field. In our 
junior year we received didactic lectures, manikin 
clinics, and a first experience with the night vigil.

The conviviality and harmonious per-

in developing a well rounded personality 
ill the future physician. Serving on com- 
mittees, approaching the faculty, and the 
general handling of student affairs keeps 
the interested student busy during many 
of his free hours. Fraternities, too, play 
a largo part, by not only sponsoring 
enierlainnient, but also guest lecturers 
and seminars.

"Worthy to serve the sufFering" — this is the pledge of Alpha Omega Alpha, Honor Medical Society. Beta 
of Maryland is one of seventy two chapters active in medical colleges of the United States and Canada. 

This is a non-secret society, membership to which is based on scholarship, moral qualification and future 
promise in medicine. Founded in 1902 during a revolutionary era in medical education, the organization has 
supported and encouraged improvement in medical teaching through the years. 

Installed at the University of Maryland in 1949, AOA is a progressive, growing society with an active 
student and faculty membership. Its aim has been to foster in the minds of graduates as well as underclass- 
men, the ideals of scholarship, moral integrity, professional aptitude and leadership, encourage an interest 
in research and clinical investigation, and enhance relations between students and faculty. 

This year, under the able guidance of Dr. J. Edmund Bradley and Dr. Arthur Haskins, the group's program 
has included two banquet meetings, two lectureships and a student scientific symposium. In order to emphasize 
the importance of the medical profession as an integral part of American society, AOA has chosen its speakers, 
from not only physicians, but also from non-medical personalities. Dr. Wilson H. Elkins, President of the 
University of Maryland addressed the group on "What kind of College Education for the Premedical Student," 
and Mr. Frank Branch Riley, well-known author and lecturer spoke on "A Lawyer looks at the Doctor." 

The student research paper selected for presentation at the scientific symposium in Gordon Wilson Hall 
v;ere by Charles Sanislow, Nicholas R. Bachur and Raymond E. Swanson. 

Richard Belgrad, Harry D. Wilson, Jr., and C. Patrick Laughlin served as President, vice-President and 
Secretary-Treasurer, respectively during 1955-56.

^U SIGMA M 



The year 1956 represented tlie 53rd con- 
secutive year for the oldest and largest fra- 
ternity on campus, the Beta Alpha chapter of 
Nu Sigma Nil. 

Starting off the first week, Nu Sigs extended 
their welcome to tlie freshmen, our new 
"frates in altes altissima," with a series of 
stag smokers followed by a mixer We wel- 
comed the faculty freshmen at the annual 
Reception for New Faculty Members and 



Department Heads, which is an established 
tradition with Nu Sigs. 

The first semester of the year swept the 23 
pledges into the rigors of "all" anatomy, and 
the sophomores into petri dishes and smoked 
drums. Buoyed up from this luidertow of 
new knowledge, the now clinical Juniors and 
Seniors invited Dr. Woodward and Dr. Meek, 
to give informal talks illustrating the prac- 
tical aspects of medicine and surgery.

Celebrating its Golden Anniversary at our School of Medicine, Delta Epsilon Chapter is 
proud of its vital role in the activities on the Baltimore campus. The chapter received its local 
charter in 1906 and this year celebrates its 50th anniversary as the largest medical fraternity 
at the Uni\ersity of Maryland with a membership of more than eighty medical students. 

The fraternity is honored by the leadership of its members in the Interfraternity Council, 
the A.O.A., the Committee on Student Affairs, the Student Council, and on the Terrae Mariae 
Medicus. Among the achievements are fine series of scientific meetings presented this year. Who 
will forget Doctors Lisansky, Finesinger, Hall,=aiid Krause presenting their views on '"Should 
the Patient Be Told?". Then, too, there \vas Dr. t.coijard Scherlis discussing new advances in 
cardiology. The annual Lectureship was given bjt L>);i Ansel Keys of the University of Minne- 
sota on "The Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease'.^''^i 

To brighten the spirits of the boys there W(ij(><ilii<^|ioiise parties, the smoker at the Variety 
Club, Carnival night, the delerious New \es(4^S^|^/Jjarty, the Conclave dinner-dance at the 
Mayflower Hotel in Washington and the fin^=w5st — the "Golden Senior Farewell" at the 
Emerson Hotel. 

One of the outstanding accomplishments of the year was the initiation of tiie "Graduate- 
Prater Program." In years to come each frater will have a Phi Delta Epsilon Graduate Club 
member as an advisor with whom he can establish a personal relationship and from whose 
practical experience he can benefit. 

From its founding in 1904 by eight enthusiastic men at Cornell University, Phi Delta 
Epsilon has expanded year after year until now it is a national organization with a membership 
of over 10,000 physicians and students and with chapters and graduate clubs at every major 
medical school throuirhout the United States and Canada.

PHI BETA PI 



A proud member of one of the largest and strongest national medical fraternities, the Zeta chapter of Phi 
Beta Pi also claims local heritage. Established on the campus in 1901. and active here ever since, except during 
a brief period in World War II, Phi Beta Pi has consistently been prominent in academic, athletic, and social 
affairs. 

The fraternity's membership includes many faculty i^nbers representing a wide range of the various academic 
departments. The latter, along with several guest sp^eafsha^e repeatedly treated the group to excellent seminars. 
Student membership in Phi Beta Pi includes an abundance df campus leaders — Class Presidents. Student Council 
Presidents, and other class officers. AOA members, Kewnian Club leaders and the TERRA MARIAE MEDICUS 
Editor. §:'' % 

Phi Beta Pi's prominent location at 519 W. l.omhant Street, just across the street from medical school, 
makes the fraternity easiiv accessible for between class and liini li hour relaxation. The fraternity's pine-panelled 
bar, its piano, phonograph and television set are subjected to frequent use over the weekends. In addition to 
the usual smokers, parties, seminars and guest speakers, this year's activities again included our annual party 
at Dr. Kardash's shore. 

The Phi Bate's lament the graduation of an outstanding senior class, but with a strong force still left, 
anticipate another active and promising year of social and academic leadership.

the profession and the layman and a beach party, ^^^^^rocome a smooth functioning organization. Continued 
help to freshmen with study guides and panel d\sc^^\/)t^^' eminent members of the medical profession have 
been an integral part of the activities at the house. ^^M^^able parties — "stag and drag" — enlivened our less 
academic moments. The summit of our social pra^^^gW^ the annual formal dinner-dance at the Saxony. 

We have been able to participate in the newly formed Interfraternity council at school and our national 
organization by sending well qualified representatives. We were honored by having a national officer selected 
from our chapter. By wonderful cooperation with the alumni club of this city, we have expanded our outlook 
to include a new fraternity house and a more extensive program.

STUDENT COUNCIL 



The Student Council as liaison between the student and faculty has diversified functions directed toward 
the formulation and direction to policies and activities of the student hody as a whole. In accordance with 
the new By-laws of the organization adopted during this school year, the membership of the Council consists 
of the President and two rej)resentatives from each class and a representative of the SAMA. The Council 
meets at regular intervals to consider the many matters that come under its sphere, including the Student 
Activities Fund, school dances, interclass sports program, student lounge, class elections and other details 
concerned with all phases of student life and curriculum. 

This year the Council acted to broaden the scope of its activities not only on a medical school level but 
also on the University and national levels. The Professional School Senate composed of representatives of the 
Student Councils of all five Baltimore schools was organized. The charter of this organization pr(>\ ides for 
coordinated action on matters of mutual concern to all schools and will grant this organization representation 
in the Student Senate of the University at College Park. Contact on a national basis was made by sending 
delegates from the Council to the SAMA convention, where problems common to all schools were discussed. 

The most important respcmsibility of the Student Council is concerned with the advancement of the 
medical curriculum. The Council coordinates and supervises tli(> |)resenlation of the student evaluation of the 
present curriculum to the faculty and a(lministrati\e olficers. The Student Councii-FacuU) Dinner formerly 
held in the spring of each year was replaced this year by open class meetings at which the class oflicers and 
representatives |)resented data regarding class evaluation of courses as gathered by a survey of individual 
members of each class. 

The department heads were then able to comment on departmental jjolicy. jjlans for the improvement 
and discuss the feasibility of putting into practice suggestions made by the students through their representa- 
tives as well as any direct questions from class members present. The sjiirit of cooperation and mutual under- 
standing demonstrated in these give and take meetings is t\pical of the fine Sludenl-I-acult) relationships for 
which our school has long been noted.

The year 1955-1956 has been a significant one for the Maryland Chapter of the Student 
American Medical Association. The year was ushered in in the spring of 1955 at the annual 
SAMA Convention in Chicago where the University of Maryland was most fortunate in having 
its name on the national SAMA scene by the election of Harry Wilson, Class of 1956, to the 
office of National Treasurer, by the awarding to Wilbur Pickett, Class of 1956, first prize in 
the National Blue Shield Essay Contest, and by the well-received showing to the assembled 
delegates of Dr. John Krantz's fine movie, "Drug Addiction — A Medical Hazard." 

These events were accompanied by stimulation of interest in the local chapter where a 
Freshman membership drive resulted in almost ninety per cent membership. Increased Freshman 
and Sophomore participation in SAMA has been evident throughout the year. Our series of 
medical films was primarily chosen for these classes. The annual Internship Questionnaires, 
sent to the Class of 1954, were returned thoughtfully answered and were of some benefit in 
enlightening this year's Seniors. 

The Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland and the school administration were 
contacted in regard to the possibility of establishing a preceptorship program. Student opinion 
as revealed by a school-wide poll was overwhelmingly in favor of such a program and more 
progress in this direction is expected. 

The SAMA Newsletter for the dissemination of pertinent news and views was inaugurated 
in February. Its potential for expansion and elaboration is great and it should continue to be 
a useful medium for the School of Medicine. Beginnings have been initiated for the establish- 
ment of a student book exchange. 

In the revised Bylaws of the Student Council the President of SAMA has become a member 
of that body. The President is also a member of the newly formed Student Activities Committee 
composed of faculty and students and acting as a coordinating team. 

At the 1956 SAMA Convention the University of Maryland will be fortunate in having five 
SAMA members present, thereby assuring an ever-increasing Maryland interest in the Student 
American Medical Association. ^^

CHRISTIAIV MEDICAL SOCIETY 



"But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins" 
— He then said to the paralytic — "Rise, take up your bed and go home." 
As quoted from the gospel of St. Matthew, the Lord Jesus Christ had hoth purpose and 
power, as well as compassion in His ministry on earth. Christians throughout the years have 
sought to accrue these characteristics by getting to know this same God through understanding 
of Scripture, in prayer, by knowledge in general, and the exchange of ideas. Because of this 
desire many Christians with similar purpose in the medical profession have organized as the 
Christian Medical Society. Since its formal beginning in Chicago in 1946 autonomous groups 
have been initiated in some fifty medical schools with numerous active graduate chapters. Here 
at Maryland a group has met regularly for the past eleven years. 

CMS is non-seclarian uitli llic iiiiitv of its mend)crshi|) mainlaincd in ihcir i)e]icf in the 
Iriinic Cod. Wlio has manifest Himself in His creation and in His revealed Word. In our study 
and our contact with the broad scope of the patient's need, we arc liecoming more aware of the 
congrnity of what medicine has to offer and the Christ, Who said "I am come that they might 
have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
