Sponsored by Beta Epsilon Upsilon, honorary medical technology sorority, Dr. McCracken will discuss the problems involved in transplantation, the results expected from an operation, and the results and improvements wrought since the last operation. Tulane's medical school and operating surgeons were awarded a grant by the National Institute of Health for the kidney operation which is performed in only terminal cases resulting from a chronic inflamation of the kidneys. Dr. McCracken, along with colleagues, has performed various operations. Born in Wales where he received part of his medical education at the Welsh National School of Medicine, Dr. Mc- Cracken then attended the Wisconsin School of Medicine. He also served in the Royal Air Force as a graded medical specialist.A specialist in internal medicine and renal diseases, he interned at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston and Sully Chest Hospital in England, and was a resident in Welsh Hospital and Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. With Tulane's medical school since 1958 where he is consultant physician for the U. S. Public Health Service and head of the kidney unit, Dr. McCracken is also visiting physician at Charity Hospital and examining physician for the state welfare department He is a member of the British association of London, the Royal College of Physicians, the Endocrine society of Chicago, the Orleans Parish Medical society of New Orleans, and the American society of Clinical Nutrition.

Art Exhibit Set For Next Week The Cultural Committee of the Student Union is sponsoring an art exhibit in the Student Center lounge starting Monday. The one man art show is made up of the paintings of Charles Reinike who has just finished a show at the downtown 331 Gallery. The exhibit will be displayed on the new exhibit boards which the Cultural Committee has just obtained. Who Are You? Some pretty wild things hove turned up in the Lost and Found department in the Donna center before, but this recent discovery has student secretary Sally Droppelman perplexed. There hos been much conjecture as to the identity of the victim. Could it be a casualty of mid-semester exams, an unsuspecting visitor who dined in the snack bar, or perhaps even a Fordham basketball player? lAC Is Sign Post On The Horizon Flanagan Speaks "Our Inter-American center is a sign post on the horizon. We stand alone, being the first and only one in the U. 5.," said Mr. G. E. Flanagan, director. "The purpose of the center is to train young leaders from the five Central American countries and Panama, so as to equip them with social and economic knowledge," he stated at the Social Science club lecture Tuesday night. Latin American median age is 21.5 years and this highlights the reason for selecting young leaders for this program. "Being attuned to the needs and aspirations of their countrymen, they may evolve new institutions and new leadership —devoid of the traditional authoritarism which has been imposed for centuries on our southern neighbors," he added. "If we are to exercise any influence on the course of events leading to institutional change for them, it will only be through leaders who share with us a certain common ground and understanding of historical changes, a feel for individual rights, and a grasp of nontotalitarian techniques," Flanagan said. SELECTION OF the trainees for the six-week periods is based on their potential and actual leadership qualities, and their access to key organizational positions. The center, a realized plan of the Rev. Louis Twomey, S.J., former director of the Institute of Industrial Relations, is contracted by the U.S. Agency for International Development to train approximately 180 candidates a year. "A pioneering approach to education, unlike the traditional mode of teaching, has been devised for the trainees," Flanagan said. It consists of a 79-hour cur- riculum which is divided into four categories: problems of transition, human resource development, economic development, and group seminars and source materials. "FACULTY FROM the five universities in New Orleans, guest lecturers from government, industry, labor, and housing, comprise the educators for the center's training program," he said. Among the charges designated by AID to be carried out by the center was to help the participants develop a clearer concept and a realistic understanding of the social, political, cultural, and economical aspects of the U.S. Flanagan pointed out, "Much of Latin America is in the throes of an acute crisis. The common denominator for this situation is the resistance to change by the traditional ruling class, a small group which holds the levers of power," he explained. AS TO whether or not this center is a hope for a bright Latin American future, Flanagan believes that since the program is in its infancy, only time can answer that question. He asserted that he would make no wild Utopian predictions, but he does have "much faith in the center's program and is encouraged by the outstanding, fine, young leaders who have come to participate." "We have not set the world afire, but we have decided that it is better to light one candle than to curse the dark," Flanagan concluded. G. E. FLANAGAN Chemists Assn. To Gather Here The Louisiana section of the American Chemical Society will hold a meeting in the Danna center at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Guest speaker will be Dr. Mary L. Willard, professor of chemistry at Pennsylvania State University. She will speak on "Criminalistics." A technical consultant in many criminal investigations, Professor Willard will give "Whodunit" examples of how the use of modern instruments has taken the profits from crimes. The speaker is the author of numerous papers in the fields of chemical microscopy, optical crystallography, and scientific crime detection. Miss Wolf Title Nominations for "M i• • Wolf of 1965" must be in by Friday, according to Ardley Hanemann, editor of the Wolf yearbook. Seniors only are eligible for the honor.

Ballet, LU Band To Hold Concert Loyola's Concert Band will perform with the New Orleans Ballet Company Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the fieldhouse.This band concert will be supplemented not only by performances by the ballet group, but also by solos played by members of the band. Choreographer for the dance troup is Lelia Haller. Monday afternoon at 2 p.m. a special performance for the religious of the city will be presented in the fieldhouse. Admission for this is free. Under the direction of Georpp Jansen, the band will tour from January 28-30. They will be accompanied by some members of the ballet group.

Loyola Lists Tuition Hike Loyola's tuition will be $900 effective September, 1965 and $1000 effective September, 1966. The two-step tuition increase was announced by the Very Rev. Andrew C. Smith, S.J., university president, as "unavoidable in the face of rising costs in higher education." _ Arts and sciences, business administration, law, music and pharmacy will each go up to $900 and $1000 respectively in the two next school years. In the school of dentistry tuition will be changed from $900 to $1000 in 1965-66 and $1200 in 1966-67 for Louisiana residents. Fees for out-of-state students will go from $1150 to $1250 in 1965-66 and $1450 in 1966-67. FATHER SMITH said Loyola's tuition will be "generally lower" than at private universities of comparable size throughout the nation." "Universities everywhere are increasing salaries in order to maintain their present faculties and attract additional teacher-scholars," Father Smith explained. "Facilities, equipment and maintenance also increase as institutions strive to improve their level of instruction and research and achieve maximum service to their students and the communities," he said. The president added that Loyola students upon graduation are in competition with graduates of large state-suported institutions and wealthy private universities. "We have a responsibility to provide them with an education that will enable them to compete." ADDED TO this the university is constantly seeking to provide additional scholarship funds for students in need of aid. Father Smith pointed out that several months ago approximately 30 new scholarships for superior students were established out of university funds. He said the university has also set aside additional funds for its share of the federal loan program, under which students may borrow up to $1000 a year with the university furnishing 10 per cent. Approximately 500 Loyola students are presently receiving financial aid. TUITION COSTS have been rising all over the country to meet the demands of rising costs, and Loyola's present tuition falls quite a bit lower than the majority of universities and colleges. Xavier university of Cincinnati which recently increased their own tuition, published a list of comparative figures of college tuitions based on a 1964 study and their findings were: Boston C $1400 Holy Cross C. 1200 St. Louis U 1150 Marquette U. 1100 Santa Clara U. 1100 Loyola, Los Angeles 1100 Loyola, Chicago 1040 Xavier U. 969 Canisius 900 Seattle U. 860 Loyola, New Orleans 750 Other institutions: (these figures include tuition and fees): Harvard U $1520 U. of Chicago 1455 John Hopkins U. 1600 Villanova U. 1250 U. of Notre Dame 1400 FATHER SMITH Wilson Appointed As Interim Dean; Ireland Back To Full-Time Teaching By SHERYL BUTLER The new year has barely begun, everyone is getting off to a fresh start and changes are being wrought. The Loyola college of pharmacy is no exception as it acquires a new head. Dr. Edward J. Ireland is retiring as dean and will return to full-time teaching and research as a member of the pharmacy faculty. Louis A. Wilson, assistant dean of the college, has been appointed interim dean by the Very Rev. Andrew C. Smith, S.J., university president.Father Smith said Dr. Ireland will continue in his post as professor of pharmacology and pharmacognosy and will serve as consultant to the interim dean. The president expressed grattitude to the former dean for his work in building up the enrollment and facilities of the college. "Dr. Ireland is one of the South's most respected pharmacy professors and we shall count on his assistance in the selection of a new dean," said Father Smith. DR. IRELAND joined the faculty in 1939 and became dean in 1957 following the death of Dean John F. Mc- Closkey. A native of Victor, Col., Dr. Ireland received his BA, BS, MS and Ph.D degrees from the University of Wisconsin.He has served as toxicologist for the City of New Orleans and is a former national president of Rho Chi, national honorary pharmaceutical society, and currently heads the American Institute of History of Pharmacy.
