Ct Wright sets record By LARRY HYMEL Record setting efforts by kicking specialists Bret Wright and Bruce Ladner highlighted a season that found SLU returning to the winning ranks. Wright and Ladner both set SLU kicking records for the campaign which saw the Lions compile a 6-5 record despite losing both the first and final two games. Wright established a new SLU single season punting record with a 44.3 average, just missing the national championship (Marshall's Pat Velarde had a 44.6) while Ladner's 58 points scored kicking also set a new mark. Lion Coach Oscar Lofton said he was pleased at the overall outcome of the 1983 season for the Lions, but noted, "'We lost some momentum after the Jackson State game. We had the open date and did not come back and play as well as we had before that. But give our opponents (Northwestern and Nicholls State) credit, they played well at the end.'"

Directed by Jane Walker, a member of the SLU Department of Communications and Theatre for the past year, the play will tell the classic story of a little evil man who tries to bargain for a baby and in the end meets his doom by stomping himself into the ground. According to Walker, who recently concentrated her master's degree studies in children's theatre at New York University, the play is being presented especially for the children of Tangipahoa Parish. Matinee per- formances for children are scheduled for Dec. 6, 8 and 9. All performances will be held in the SLU Humanities Theatre and all seats are $1. SLU ulcer research FROM PAGE THIRTEEN The SLU researcher found that the combination not only reduced the incidence of ulcers in various groups of rats by 80 percent, but also diminished both the number and severity of ulcers drastically. The data showed that the number of ulcers was reduced from as many as 328 to only five while the area of some ulcers was cut from the size of an entire glandular surface to less than one millimeter. In an attempt to learn more about the possible impact on higher ani- mals by studying microorganisms, Shepherd is conducting further experimentation to find out how the treatment effects bacteria He be lieves that his discovery could offer some advantages over current methods of treating ulcers "'Current ulcer treatments usually involve a Ion 9. drawn out process with patients apparently never getting over their ulcers--only their conditions get better at intervals." Shepherd saad 1'With ra:s. v,e have caused the ulcers and then obliter- ated them with the treatment" Shepherd also pointed out that the treatmert might improve cancer therapy *'Higher levels of potassium might help protect patients from too much damage ,xhen their tumors are irradiated. ` Shepherd said With regard to ulcers, cancer and nuclear radiation, the answer m;ght lie in Shepherds w.eli-balanced diet Joel Spears U.S. Treasury Agent Joel Spears (center) poses with Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Eddie Layrisson and Hammond Police Chief Roddy Devall. two local lawmen called in on the federal police "reverse sting" that resulted in the eventual arrest of five out-of-state men on charges stem- ming from federal police selling them 23 tons of police marijuana.
