Dr. Eugene St. Martin, urolo-gist, was named president-elect of the society, while Louisiana State University Medical School at Shreveport Dean Edgar Hull was selected to receive the g r o u p ' s first "Distinguished Service Award," which was set up last year. The award was given for outstanding service to the medi- See Related Story, Pages 2-A, 5-A cal profession, and specifically for "his work as an internist, cardiologist and especially as a teacher." Hull was named dean of the medical school here in 1966. St. Martin defeated Dr. Frank J. Allen, Baton Rouge internist, for the president-elect post, meaning he will automatically become president next year. The election was preceded by several days of campaigning by supporters from both camps. Another Shreveporter, Dr. J. Woodfin Wilson, internist, who was first vice president of the group last year, was elected councilor for the 4th District. Dr. Ralph Riggs of Shreveport, was re-elected delegate to the American Medical Association, and Dr. S. L. Gill was re-elected alternate delegate to the AMA. Dr. H. H. Hardy of Alexandria was re-elected chairman of the house of delegates. Other new officers include Dr. James H. Stewart of New Orleans, first vice president: Dr. F. Michael Smith of Thibo-daux, second vice president, and Dr. A. W. Beacham of Lafay-ette, third vice president. O f f i c e r s were elected and resolutions were passed in a closed meeting of the house of delegates yesterday. The meet-ing was c l o s e d , said LMS official Paul Perrett, "because we don't wash our dirty linen in public."
