The Commons' opening delayed
The Commons, a new restaurant
plaa located in the basement of
Lenoir Hall, failed to open for
business this week due to minor
construction problems, which kept
the area from passing Health Depart
ment preliminary inspections.
There will be another inspection
todav to dptrrminf ;f The Commons
can open Monday, according to
AR A Director Tony Hardee.
The problems consisted of unfin
ished base molding and a hood
system that had not been installed.
The hood system just r came in
today." Hardee said.

Foundation director's home
The home of the Morehead Foun
dation's executive director, Mebane
Pritchett, was broken into and robbed
Monday. According to police reports,
an estimated $11,500 in silver, jewelry
and a fur coat were taken.
Pritchett and his family were on
vacation at the time of the robbery, but
Chapel Hill Police Captain Ralph
Pendergraph said that the house had
been checked at 8 a.m. Monday morn
ing. Pritchett reported the theft at 6:10
p.m., when he returned home.
Police said that the house was broken
into through a window in the back, but
police didn't know how many persons
were involved in the break-in.
We have no evidence to indicate the
specific numbers, Pendergraph said,
and added that police weren't public
izing any suspects they have in the case.
Pritchett said that several other
houses in his neighborhood had also
been broken into recently, and that
police thought the break-ins had been
committed by the same people.
He also said that the police report
was greatly exaggerated. "Some things
were missing, but most of our valuables
are kept in the bank," he said.
Pritchett added that although the loss
was not significant, he was taking
precautions. "We're installing a special
security system to keep things like this
from happening again," he said.

Surgeons at N.C. Memorial Hospital will begin
heart transplant operations later this year in a program
approved Monday by the hospital's board of directors.
" We Ve been working on this plan for quite some
time," Dr. Benson Wilcox said yesterday. "And we're
very excited about it." Wilcox is chief of cardiothoracic
surgery at NCMH.
NCMH considered performing heart transplants
because of the advancement in anti-rejection drugs.
"Heart transplants have become a much more viable
option for hospitals, Kathy Bartlett, NCMH media
relations coordinator, said Wednesday.
Nationwide, over two hundred heart transplants
were performed in the U.S. in 1984, Wilcox said.
"We're aiming at one a month, Wilcox said, once
the program is established. He said there will be four
or five transplants in 1985.
There has never been a heart transplant in North
Carolina. The nearest transplant program is in
Richmond, Va. Wilcox said there are about 26
hospitals in the U.S. with heart transplant programs.
Wilcox said previous NCMH patients requiring
heart transplants had gone either to Richmond,
Pittsburgh or to Stanford University in Palo Alto,
Calif, to have the transplant surgery.
Bartlett said NCMH will require transplant patients
to make a $70,000 deposit or show proof of medical
insurance coverage. She said the average cost of a
heart transplant operation would be between $60,000
Duke University Medical Center has also approved
a heart transplant program. Duke's first transplant
should precede NCMH's by a few months. Duke plans
a similar financial arrangement.
NCMH will also be involved in lung transplants
in the future, Wilcox said. Lung transplants have been
tried in isolation, but there has been more success
when heart and lungs are transplanted as a unit.
Most of the transplants will only involve hearts,
Wilcox said. None of the intitial operations will
include lung transplants, he said.
The new drug, making heart transplants more
viable, causes fewer complications to body systems
than drugs used previously.
Hospital officials are interviewing candidates for
at least one additional surgeon for the program.
Selection should be complete by mid-summer, Wilcox
said, and the first transplant will be after the surgeon
is oriented into the program.
NCMH will use a national computer network to
match donors with recipients, Wilcox said.

Many of the celebrations and cerem
onies honoring the late Martin Luther
King, Jr. ended January 15, but at least
one more ceremony will take place
Tuesday, January 22.
Randall Robinson, executive director
of Transafrica of Washington, D.C.,
will be the guest speaker at the seventh
annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Memor
ial Ceremony at 3 p.m. in the Rosenau
"People honor Dr. King from his
birthday until February," said William
T. Small, assistant dean of the School
of Public Health. "Time doesn't really
matter as long as he's honored."
The ceremony originally began with
the purpose of paying homage to King
for his contributions to mankind
internationally, Small said.
"King's work for human rights
parallels many of the issues and con
cerns that public health workers are
involved in," he said.
Robinson and Transafrica, a black
American foreign policy lobby for
Africa and the Caribbean, have received
national attention recently for coordi
nating the demonstrations at the South
African Embassy in Washington.
Robinson will hold a 2 p.m. news
conference in Rosenau before the
memorial ceremony. A question and
answer session and reception will follow
The free ceremony is sponsored by
the Minority Student Caucus of the
UNC School of Public Health.
