The Loyola Maroon Vol. XLI Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, March 12, 1965 No. 18 Pharm. School Closed ... By GUS MELENDEZ Directors' Decision Students enrolled in Loyola's pharmacy college are being aided in their attempts to gain acceptance by other schools in time for the next semester in the fall, according to Dean Louis A. Wilson of pharmacy. This has become necessary because the university's board of directors voted to discontinue the program in pharmacy at the close of the current term. Dean Wilson said that letters and calls are being used to help clear up problems Dental Dean on the national level so that the students can transfer to accerdited schools. The very Rev. Andrew C. Smith, S.J., president of the university, said that the board of directors voted to drop the program because of declining enrollment and prohibitive costs. ONCE THE LARGEST pharmacy college in the state, the college has had enrollment problems in recent years, especially since the opening of the state pharmacy college in Monroe in 1958. From a peak of 242 students in 1947, when the G.I. Bill of Rights was at its height, enrollment declined to a low of 38 in 1957-58. "In the past 12 years our pharmacy enrollment has never risen above 81 students," said Father Smith. "The annual deficit for the past five years has averaged $1200 per student. In 1964 we incurred a deficit of $1405 for every student enrolled." DEAN WILSON said, "Increased enrollment would only add to the deficit now because WHY doesn't anyone ever write us? (See page 4) the 5-year education plan is expensive. Regardless of enrollment, a substantial budget is necessary because of the requirements of the accrediting board." A university self-study conducted by the faculty recommended last April that serious thought be given to the future of the pharmacy school in view of its continuing enrollment problem. Troubles of the college were compounded last July when the Council on Pharmaceutical Education removed it from its accredited list. At the end of the recent fall semester 44 of the 59 students enrolled transferred to other institutions, some going to the University of Houston. "AFTER MUCH deliberation and consultation with our lay advisors, including a number of pharmacists, the board decided that the cost of restoring the college to its former status and conducting it as a firstclass college would be prohibitive in the light of heavy commitmentscommitments we have made for those colleges and departments where we have many more applicants and a shortage of facilities," said Father Smith. He also said that the university is committed to raise $3.9 million in matching funds for a new dental building and more than ?1 million for a science complex. Including government grants and loans, the new buildings will total nearly $9 million in construction costs. "These buildings will allow us to accept more students but will also increase our operating costs. DEAN LOUIS M. WILSON New Plant-A Must' Dean Edmund E. Jeansonne of the school of the school of dentistry, Tuesday spoke to the Student Council about the changes that had been made to comply with the requirements set by the Council on Dental Education. Regaining full accreditation, he told the council, depends on the firm committment of the university to build a new dental school plant. The dental school has received a $3 million grant from the federal government which must be matched by Loyola.THE COUNCIL on Dental Education had complained last February of outdated and outmoded facilities, overcrowding of students and patients, and lack of good interdepartmental communication. Most of these problems will be eliminated with the construction of the dental building. Recommended changes in the curriculum have taken place and dentistry now has a professor in pedidonics. The council chairman and permanent secretary will visit the dental school April 22-23. In reply to a question from the floor, Dean Jeansonne said that the council may have been politically motivated in giving Loyola provisional accreditation. This may have been a move to nudge Loyola into building a new dental school. He told of visiting several accredited dental schools which were in worse shape than Loyola. He cited the equipment on the second floor as one of the best in dentistry. DEAN JEANSONNE said that no private school today can carry its own weight in competition with state institutions.Many dental schools found out about the provisional accreditation in the American Dental Association journal. The dental department was not informed that the ADA would publish it. There is presently a bill before Congress which would give financial aid to dental schools, perhaps $250 per student.

Rnith, S.J., president said that e university's board of direc- tors had voted to discontinue the pharmacy college because of its high costs and declining enrollment.

ENROLLMENT rose two years ago when other pharmacy colleges were forced to begin Undefeated the five year degree program. Loss of accreditation in July resulted in another student decline. Pharmacy students would have had to total 130 for the school to have had a good financial balance. Dean Yilson said. The situation rose to a climax with the board's meeting. Telegrams were sent to pharmacy faculty Saturday. Their contracts will be honored. AS FOR THE future, "the chances for the college of pharmacy going to LSU appear to be good," said Dean Wilson.

We also got caught in Mobile's Mardi Gras parades on the way back to catch the bus home." Jocelyn Develle said, "This was my first college debate and I was filled with anxiety when I found out that the first team I'd have to face would be an undefeated Notre Dame team. I was overjoyed when we won the debate." When the final results were announced, Dupont made this comment, "Don't show any emotion if we win." Jocelyn said that when they heard their names as winners, "There was a show of emotion!"
