First task for U of I medical students: Dissect cadavers By LARRY ECKHOLT RHlittrStfWVirrttir IOWA CITY, IA, - Less than two hours after tHeir first medical school lecture here last week, the 175 members of freshman medical class had to face up to dissecting' human . cadavers. Two hours later, they had lunch. ' For the vast majority of the 33 women and 142-men in the class, Ihis was their first counter with a cadaver. Many were understandably nervous and apprehensive as they en' ter«T the. gross anatomy: lab . shortly before 10:30 a,m, Monday, r" ' White Plastic Each of the 44 cadavers was cov ered with a white plastic sheet as the teams of four students quietly looked for the assigned stations where they would be working on the bodies for the next four months. There was an aura of respect in the 1 room, and despite some initial anxiety pangs, no one had to because of squeamish- freshman medical student comes prepared for hard work. The medical school faculty, as well as other students, are there to help, totf. "We've set up the hurdles... |»w we're here to help you blear them," a reassuring Dr. David J. Moffatt, associate professor-of-ahatomyr announced in his/opening lecture. Dr. Moffatt told the students "there is no reason why any of "1 Nobody did last Ive you whatever want, if you ask subjected to "complete boredom." Big Transition For Joan Mahn, 22, of Storm Lake, the biggest transition is from the small town campus of Northwestern College in Orange where she graduate _^ to the understate's you leave ness. "I was all psyched up for it," explained Shelley Walton, a 22- year-old, first-year medical student from Anamosa. "I had seen the lab before, so I sort of knew what to expect." The first assignment in gross anatomy class was to explore the superficial tissues on the chest. Most students said iy was an easy assignment, one suited to the first day. Face Covered Still, the trauma of working on a cadaver for the first time is real, Walton said. She was surprised, for example, to find that the face of a cadaver remains covered with a small cloth when the plastic sheet is pulled back, so there may bo another moment of concern when the face is exposed later. This is but one of the traumas facing U of I students embarking on a career in medicine. The medical students start early to squeeze as much time into a semester as possible. After two days of special orientation sessions the week before last, first-year medical students jump right into the deep end of course work. "I'm behind already," joked one student just a half-day into the semester. "Goes on Forever" Dr. George Baker, associate dean for medical student affairs and curriculum, said the orientation is designed to show new students the concept that medical education is a "continuum" that includes medical school, post-graduate residency training and continuing education "that goes on forever." for It. If you want someone to pat you on the back, we'll do that, too." Marcus Welby The mood of the opening lecture was at times lighthearted. Dr. Moffatt disclosed that "somebody by the name of Marcus Welby" signed up for a lab table. "If there actually is somebody named Marcus Welby in this class, he should change his name, because I. automatically flunk people 1 by that name," he said. The professor's tone turned serious when gthe lecture focused on the protocol to be used in working with cadavers, most given to the U of I through its deeded'body program. ""Bodies which are donated are given for very honorable purposes and should be used as such," Dr. Moffatt stressed. If any student misuses a body — or any part of it — "we'll throw the book at you, and as you already know, we have some pretty heavy books," he warned. 10-Pound Book (The textbook for anatomy class comes in seven separate paperback volumes, is over a foot thick and weighs more than 10 pounds. Some students reported they spent over $200 on books for this semester alone.) Student reactions to the first anatomy class — as well as to the first days of classes in general — were varied. William (Mike) Campbell, 23, of Chariton, said it "bummed me out at first" when he stood over the cadaver of an elderly woman. The mental, stress he experienced was not over the cadaver, but rather at the thought of four years of medical school ahead of him. Dick Pitzen, 25, originally of Staceyville, said be found the busy pace "refreshing." Pitzen was discharged from the U.S. Army three weeks ago. He had been stationed in West Germany at a combat support .. largest university. "They sure slide into things pretty fast here," said Mahn. For Shelley Walton, a graduate of LUther College in Decorah, the first week of medical school classes has been "one step in a huge adventure." 'Walton said she knew medical school would be tough so "once you make the decision to do it, you jump two feet forward and never turn back. You just keep forging ahead." Though she and Mahn are among the female minority in medical school, Walton said Ijer instructors "don't seem to be treating us differently because we're women. I want it that way." Ph.D., Too And then there is John Stamler, 21, of Iowa City, one of a very small fraction of the medical class who is not only working on an M.D. but will also have earned a Ph.D. at the end STAR FOUND BY YOUTH, 17 TOKYO, JAPAN (AP) just can't believe I was th first to find the star — it wa so bright anyone could hav spotted it," said Kentaro Os ada, the 17-year-old high schoo senior credited with discoverin Nova-Cybni 1975.

Prof. Hideyoshi Kozai, an astronomer at Tokyo University, said Osada's Nova-Cybni 1975 was the brightest nova seen this year. He added: "If this proves to be a supernova, it will be the most significant discovery since 1604," the year in which German astronomer Jo- of the special, seven-year program in which he is enrolled. \ "I can't even see the end of it all," laughed Stamler. "It looms ahead somewhere, so I just plug away at it." Stamler's interests lean toward academic medicine. His father, Dr. Frederick Stamler, is a professor of pathology at the U of I. "One of my earliest memories is watching my father doing a dissection of a rat," he said. "There is a point — a pinnacle — where knowledge ends and ignorance begins," he explained. "To be standing at that point, looking for • new knowledge, is very exciting." hannes Kepler recorded the last supernova. The schoolboy astronomer said he'd like to«further his interest in astronomy at Tokyo University after graduation from high school next spring, but "I don't'think I can get in with my grades." Osada's widowed mother expressed surprise that her son had made an important sighting. But later, Mrs. Chizuko Osada said, "my son often forgets to eat or sleep when there's* a good night for watching stars."

"Shows as Usual" "They arrested him a little later but we're having shows as usual tonight (Saturday)," said Warden.

Projectionists also were striking at three theaters in Lincoln and at one each in Rock Island, and Moline, Dubinsky said. Reason Given John Doud, secretary of Local 286, said projectionists In DCS Moines — who have been working without a contract for more than a year — went on strike because of the "take it or leave it" attitude management has maintained on its latest contract offer. Doud said contract negotiations have been broken off and no further negotiations are scheduled. Dubinsky said his firm had no warning the projectionists were planning to strike. He said fiie Des Moines local Was to reply by Sept. 4 to a contract offered from the company. Gray said proposals by Dubinsky Bros, would reduce the number of hours projectionists work each week and subsequently would reduce wages. He said some projectionists currently are supporting their families on an average salary of $150 per week. New proposals by the company could mean an average salary of $60 per week, and Gray said the union will continue to fight such a salary cut. Dr, Bass dies NEW ORLEANS, LA.
