Faculty Member Will Work Under $250,000 Grant of Local Foundation. Dr. Daniel C. Elkin. a member of the faculty of the Emory University School of Medicine since 1923, was named yesterday as the "Joseph B. Whitehead Professor of Surgery" under the grant of $250,000 endowing the professor's help from th? Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation of Atlanta. Designation of Dr. Elkin was made at a meeting of the university's executive committee yesterday and announced by Dr. Russell H. Oppcnheimer, dean of the school of medicine. Under the terms of the foundation's grant, the income derived from the $2511,000 gift is to be expended for the support of both teaching and research activities j connected with ine new proies-sorship. These are essential factors in the development of a medical center in Atlanta, a phase of the university center program toward the support of which the General Education Board has made a conditional grant of $2,-000,000 to Emory and $500,000 to Agnes Scott College. Program Strengthened "The Whitehead grant," said Dr. Oppenheimer last night, "will enable the school of medicine to strengthen and enlarge its program of research and investigation, to the support of which Joseph B. Whitehead contributed so generously during his lifetime. In this program, which particularly concerns itself with broadening the scope of medical knowledge regarding disease, its causes and the means best adapted to assure prevention and cure. Dr. Elkin will now be able to play a substantially larger part than in the past. "This gift is undoubtedly one of the most important which has ever been made toward endowment of the work cf any department of the school of medicine id is one of a number which are rapidly increasing the facilities for medical education, both undergraduate and graduate, in Atlanta. They constitute a real tribute to our city's medical profession and will serve in .Vie long run to give to the community standards of medical service not to be surpassed elsewhere." Native of Kentucky. Apprised of his selection. Dr. Elkin pointed out that the foundation's gift "will enable the depart-nent of surgery to carry forward a research program in line with present-day requirements, and will serve to perpetuate and to improve the work in which Mr. Whitehead took a deep interest." Dr. Elkin is a native of Kentucky, but his family "has long been identified with Atlanta. He is a nephew of Dr. William S. Elkin, one of Atlanta's most prominent physicians. After being graduated from Yale in 1916, Dr. Elkin pursued his medical studies at Emory, receiving his doctorate in 1920. He had his surgical training at the Peter Bent Brigham hospital in Boston under the late ! Dr. Harvey Cushing and returned ! to Atlanta in 1923 to begin the! practice of surgery and to serve j on the faculty of the school of : medicine. j Dr. Elkin has mad numerous i ' , i .

Hanes resigned today as undersecretary of the treasury, and Herbert E. Gaston was reported in line to succeed him. The genial North Carolinian quit the treasury to return to private business, but made it plain that his resignation involved no differences with the administration as have so many previous departures" from high treasury posts. Hanes was in charge of tax proposals intended to help business. - Gaston, a former newspaper editor, now is assistant secretary of the treasury and is regarded in treasury circles as closer to Secretary Morgenthau than anyone else in the department. Six months ago, Gaston permitted Morgenthau to promote him from a $10,000-a-year job as treasury publicity chief to the $9,-000 assistant secretaryship. Elevation to the undersecretaryship would restore his former pay scale. Both Morgenthau and President Roosevelt expressed regret at DOORS OPEN 1:15 P. M.
