New 'U' Medical Program
Is WellReceived-Wilkinson

Decentralized medical educa-
tion, as is being pioneered by the
University Medical School, has
been well received, according to
Dr. Charles F. Wilkinson, Jr., as-
sistant professor of internal med-
icine and co-ordinator of this pro-
Under the program, doctors
spend two years at affiliated hos-
pitals as internes and assistant
residents, and then rotate to the
Medical School in Ann Arbor for
advanced study in the basic med-
ical sciences. At the end of six
to twelve months of study, the
doctors return to their original
hospitals for at least one addi-

Now on Exhibit
Pre-Atomic Botany
Collected by Taylor
The display, "Biology of the Bi-
kini Atoll," collected by Prof. Wil-
L1am R.-Taylor, of the botany de-
partment, is the "before" of the
"before and after" at the atom
bomb test.

mens gathered by Prof. Taylor,
while he investigated the biolog-
ical condition of the islands. The
survey he made was used as a
measuring stick to tabulate the
destruction of the bombing.
"The data taken after the bomb
test is restricted to military in-
formation and cannot be shown,"
Prof. Taylor said,
Prof. Taylor viewed the atomic
explosion from twelve miles-just
over the horizon.
"There was very little noise, but
I could feel the air pushing
against me," he commented.
Shells, coral specimens, a pan-
danus fruit and native craftwork
complete the exhibit.
Pulitzer Play
To Be Given
Tickets ay now be ordered by
mail for "Our Town," Play Pro-
duction's first offering of the
year, which is scheduled for Nov.
5 through 8 at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
An entirely novel idea was in-
itiated by Thornton Wilder in the
writing of his play, as it is pro-
duced without any scenery. A
narrator keeps the audience in-
formed of changes in setting and
Winner of the Pulitzer prize and
a number of other theatrical
awards, "Our Town" is the story
of a "typical" American small
town, portraying village life in
general and the lives of two fam-
ilies in particular.

at the University played the lead
role in the original Broadway pres-

tional year as residents in their
clinical fields.
Fifteen Hospitals
Fifteen hospitals are affiliated
with the program, an increase of
two since the start of the plan one
year ago, Dr. Wilkinson said.
Twenty-nine doctors are in train-
ing at present under the program,
and five more will begin training
Previous to the institution of
the program, only the compara-
tively few doctors who obtained
appointments to hospitals of med-
ical schools and larger institu-
tions in metropolitan areas re-
ceived the type of training re-
quired to meet the high standards
set by the American Specialty
Boards for Certification, Dr. Wil-
kinson pointed out.
Another part of the plan is a
visiting program in which senior
staff members of the Medical
School pay regular visits to the
participating hospitals to conduct
clinics and have consultations
with the doctors.
Nine hospitals have joined in
this phase of the program while
the six other hospitals already had
such facilities available in their
respective cities before the pro-
gram began.
