Vet. Med, Library 619.005 P726 V. no.2 Spring 1980 .^ ^ OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE '-J"^^ --'W SPRING, 198b Vo)l^frt^2, Number 2 An Excellent Prognosis 1980-81 Dear Friends: As we go to press our 1980-81 budget has not been finalized. Prospects, however, are excellent. We have every indication that the forthcoming operating budget for the College of Veterinary Medicine will be the best in its history by any index you choose, total dollars, per cent increase over previous year, etc. This will not cure all our ills nor resolve all our problems but it does show a distinct improvement with a positive trend. We continue to seek extramural funding from private foun¬ dations and, even in a less than strong economy, we have high hopes for the forthcoming year. Our present and future success is dependent upon how well our own alumni support the College—not especially in total dollars but in percent of alumni who contribute something, regardless of the amount. This is an issue which private foundations almost Invariably address, "How well do your own people support the College?" In addition to the three new faculty members who have joined, or soon will join us, we are actively recruiting for six additional positions including an Associate Dean and a Director, Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. I take this opportunity to invite eacli of you to the Oklahoma State University alumni reception at the AVMA Convention in Washington, D.C. The reception will be Tuesday, July 22, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in the Hemisphere Room of the Washington Hilton Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there. Kindest personal regards, Patrick M. MorgarfiP.y.M., I Patrick M. Morgan Professor and Dean V.M., Dr.P.H. Plexus has been published at the request of alumni and friends of the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Comments on this issue and suggestions for future ones (particularly for Newsline, describing Oklahoma State graduates in the news) are encouraged.

Teaching Hospital Progress is on Schedule Will the rain hurt the rhubarb? That is not the College of Veterinary Medicine's concern, but it is surely slowing paving around the new Teaching Hospital. If any of you have any connections in this respect, we could use your help! Inside the walls it is a different matter. Construction is progressing better than could possibly be expected and we are right on schedule. The major contractor, Depco, expects to be finished well within the contracted time, September 1 of this year. At that time, we shall start installing equipment such as sterilizers, cage washers, surgical lighting, etc. We have no reason to anticipate anything but smooth sailing in this area and fully expect to be able to move in, as projected in late December. Construction of two of the three areas that were not origi¬ nally scheduled because of insufficient funding is now well under way and we expect to have these spaces available in late December along with the rest of the hospital. The only space that is still in question as to its completion is the Special Medicine area, and we hope to get funding for it within the next six months. At any rate, we are alive and well and will be functioning in the new Teaching Hospital by the first part of 1981 — hopefully!! L. to R., Dean Patrick Morgan, Mrs. MacNeil, Librarian, John Link, Pres.-Elect SCAVMA, Mr. Clin Kliewer and Mrs. Brock. William E. Brock Menriorial Library On Wednesday, May 28, Mrs. Alice Lee Brock unveiled a plaque, dedicating the Veterinary Medicine Library in memory of her husband, Dr. William E. Brock, who passed away in March, 1978. Dr. Brock was a member of the Faculty for many years and had received national and international recognition for his re¬ search on anaplasmosis which led to the development of the first vaccine for the disease. Dr. Brock was Dean of the College from 1969 until his retirement in 1977. Financial contributions which were made to the William E. Brock Memorial Fund will be used towards the expansion of the library. I 2. /jt;i..
