8-A Friday, August 18, 1972 THE SHREVEPORT TIMES Board Holds First Meet CMMC Chairman Bares Plans for Improvement I this medical school and recogni-tion of the responsibility in the education and training of the same needy it has always served medically so very well." Referring to the medical school as the groom and Confederate as the bride, Quinn said, "I know it's been difficult for the bride and the groom to be living with the b r i d e 's parents before the wedding and this explains part of the prob-lem. The bride does not have her trousseau and her house in good order, and she has been restricted by her budget and by some old maid advice that has not fit her needs today. "And," the chairman contin-ued, "the groom is not without Among New Members of the Confederate Memorial Hospital Board of Directors who were administered their oaths of office Thursday at the hospital were (top row, left to right) Mrs. Lawson Wilder of Homer, Ralph R.

By Margaret Martin Times Medical Writer There's going to be a wedding between the LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport and Confederate Memorial Medical Center, Harold K. Quinn, newly appointed CMMC board of direc-tors chairman, said yesterday. Confederate is the teaching hospital for the LSU Medical School. The wedding Quinn referred to would mean more cooperation between the two bodies. Various problems have arisen on occasion over such things as priorities and authori-ty. Quinn also indicated that more members of m i n o r i t y j croups will be hired as part of the hospital staff. There are very few black employes above the janitorial level now on the payroll. Quinn spoke at the first gathering of the new board. Also attending were officials of the medical school and Con-fererate. Northwestern State University, hospital architects and State Rep. H. M. Fowler. The meeting was held in the Confederate auditorium. Robert Push reDresented the gover-nor's office. Board members present were the Rev. A. E. Davis. Ralph R. Hall, Dr. W. J. Hill Jr., Dr. B. M. Kalstone. Dr. J. D. Tal-bot and Dr. J. W. Tucker, all of Shrevepor+; A n d r e Joyce of Minden; Dr. J. D. Huckaby of C o u s h a 11 a; W. T. Purvis of M a n s f i e l d and Anna Laura Wilder of Homer. Absent was Jack H. Clayton of Haughton. Quinn told the gathering of some 100 people — including former board chairman T. B. Lanford — that there were two major problems the new board must face. Thev are. he said, the wedding of the hospital to his share of problems, too. He has not always remembered his obligation to his patients, be-cause he has had to follow the demands of a curriculum set down for his interns and resi-dents, and maybe he did not have his own house in order either. "Maybe he didn't sweet talk his bride — I don't know, but we are going to tave a wedding [soon and now," Ouinn told the group. Referring to the blacks who make up most of the patient load in the community, the new chairman said, "It is easy for jus to say 'Civil Service rules,' all of which we cannot ignore. However, I think this is some-what of an excuse and what we really were saying is that we do not have the priorities written down to develop all of the people of this community. "If people from our poor cannot meet the high standards we set for this hospital, we will not lower these standards, but we will train, we will tutor, we will crutch these u n t r a i n e d people up to our demanding standards," said Quinn, refer-ring to hiring of minority groups i at the hospital. The future of Confederate is secure, Quinn said, adding, "With new federal medical care, this hospital will no longer be what it is today. It will be paid for each patient day."
