day in the Law School.
The simultaneous trials of the

The Theatre's box office will be
open daily throughout the run
from 10 a.m. to curtain time for
the ticket sale.
THOUGH THE staff reduction
hasn't impaired the quality of the
Hospital's patient care, it has re-
sulted in some curtailment of re-
search activities and increased the
work load for the remaining staff
members, Dr. Nelson pointed out.
Of the eleven clinical depart-
ments that have released doc-
tors, the largest number have
gone from the surgery depart-
ment, which has lost 16 of its
former total of 83 surgeons.
