2VThe Daily Tar HeelFriday, January 18. 1985 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. ELIZABETH HUTH NCMH begins heart, lung transplantations Foundation director's home robbed while 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 family away 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. KAREN YOUNGBLOOD By MIKE GUNZENHAUSER Staff Writer 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 and $70,000. 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. s s THINKING ABOUT LAW-RELATED CAREER OPPORTUNITIES?

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 Hall auditorium. "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 lecture. The free ceremony is sponsored by the Minority Student Caucus of the UNC School of Public Health. m GARRETT SQUARE APARTMENTS 4216 GARRETT RD. Spacious 1, 2, & 3 bedroom Garden Style Apartments.
