New Year’s Eve 1963 TU Ob ward

The TU Ob ward did not give a lot of pain meds in the 1960’s , presumably due to costs. Alabama was playing Ole Miss On New Year’s. Day 1964 and there happened to be an Ob intern on the unit that night who was an Alabama graduate . He told all laboring  mothers that if they hollered, ” Roll Tide” they would get pain meds. Once the other mothers  saw the first mother get IM meds they hollered”Roll Tide” all night.
