Many students in the Medical
School feel there is a significant
lack of communication between
themselves and the school's ad-
ministration. Those interviewed
say that the administration is at
best. uninterested and at worst
hostile to the student body.
Dr. John R. G. Gosling, assis-
tant dean of the Medical School,
on the other hand, expresses the
view that the administration and
faculty do their best not only to
graduate all who enter the school,
but also to help them in their
difficult four years of graduate
The student feeling is best sum-
med up by a statement by a newly-
married junior from Detroit: "I

object to the whole over-all phi-I
Slosophy. The administration treats
us like donkeys. It sits on our
' backs and whips us while holding
carrots in front of our mouths.
* Students Irresponsible
"Material is spoonfed to us in
lectures. The attitude is that stu-
dents are basically irresponsible."
He gives an example. "During
surgery we are required to attend
15 autopsies. We must sign in and
out so that the faculty can check

probably wouldn't. They have to
want it. We don't like to see them
unhappy, but the level of per-
formance expected is set by the
students themselves. Competition
is tough. The curve is high because
students put it there; it is im-
portant to them to do well. The
student body tends to be harder
on itself than the faculty would
Specific examples of the dis-
parity between the way that the
administration, represented by its

students with notes covering the
lectures for which they are re-
sponsible. "They are teaching us to
be stenographers and there's no
reason for it," he said.
As the note-taking situation
stands currently, a medical service
fraternity, Phi Chi, sends scribes
to attend lectures in order to print
up notes which the student body
may purchase. All students inter-
viewed uniformly agreed that the
quality of these notes is varied
and undependable, with words

of lectures on obstetrics and gyn-
eocology to sell in paperback form.'
We were amused to see that the
students went right on taking
notes. They were afraid that a
specific piece of information might
get past them.
"This is a heritage from thef
basic sciences of their undergrad-
uate years. They have about 16,000
new terms to learn just to have
a working vocabulary in their
field," he says.

Gosling gives this explanation:
"When the turnout at lecturers is
poor, the department may change
the lectures for next year or even
for next week. Very few courses
are taught by one man, so perhaps
it is to be expected that the
quality will vary."
One future surgeon complains
that "The administration demands
so much from us that we would
have no time at all to round out
our lives if we were to do every-
thing that is expected."
Through the junior year, the
student is expected to be in at least
two places at once. Although l'e
has a full time job on his clinical
service, he is also given lecturers
and examinations.
As juniors, students attend

classes all year long, studying a
different branch of medicine each
quarter. Each quarter of the class
takes the four basic units at a
different time: internal medicine,
pediatrics, surgery and a series of
lectures known as "shorts," which'
cover assorted fields in medicine
such as psychiatry and obstetrics.
Lectures are given to the entire
junior class, irrespective of the
order in which the student is ex-
posed to the material through
his clinical work. Examinations
cover both clinical work and lec-
"When you are working from 71
a.m. to 11 p.m., it is all you can
do to study for your surgery
examination. Then they give you
a final in the same week whichj

covers lectures in internal medi-
cine," a junior said. "Furthermore,
although I had not had any prac-
tical experience in internal medi-
cine before our class final last
month, I took the same exam as
one quarter of the class, which
had spent three months on the
service earlier in the year. and
another quarter which was in the
midst of that service."
Another junior, thin and soft
spoken, elaborates on the diffi-
culty of doing two such demanding
tasks at once. "It is difficult to
become interested in the lectures
because hospital work is much
more imminent.

can announced last night that
Pope Paul VI has allowed publi-
cation of all documents in the
Vatican arc h i ves'concerning
World War II in response to re-'
quests from many nations. The de-
cisions stemmed from controversy
over the role of Pope Pius XII
during the War.
Requests to make the documents
available began to arrive at the
Vatican in the wake of turmoil

stirred by the play "The Deputy"
by Rolf Hochhuth of Germany
that questions whether Pius XII
did enough to avoid Nazi extermi-
nation of Jews.
Hochhuth, admits that the Pope'
did make efforts to organize Cath-
olic aid in helping a great number
of Jews flee Nazi tyranny. He
criticizes him, however, for not
making an open proclamation
condemning antisemitism and

Hochhuth indictes Pius XII for
not offering a moral guide for his
Catholic followers.

of the Vatican Secretariat, said

According to Dr. Morley Becket, director of Health Service,
the dispensation of stay-awake pills and drugs during examina-
tions will be made on the same basis as any other time. Each
doctor will make his own interpretation for the needs of his
individual patients.
"The doctor usually finds that what the student needs is
more sleep, not to stay awake longer" said Becket. The incidence
of psychosomatic illness usually increases during this time due
to the tensions of studying for finals, but since there is normally
no epidemic of upper respiratory diseases, the Health Service
is able to cope with this prablem without increasing its staff.
