The historic Newcomen Society in Oklahoma will have a dinner Wednesday night recognizing the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. Chartered in Oklahoma in 1944, the group is affiliated with the Newcomen Society of the United States, an organization which recognizes free enterprise.

He will be introduced by Edward L.Gaylord, publisher and president of the Oklahoma Publishing Company and a member of the Oklahoma Committee in the Newcomen Society. Gaylord also is president of the board of trustees of the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.

A reception honoring Dr. Thurmon, Newcomen members and their guests will be held at 6:30 p.m., prior to the dinner and hosted by Liberty National Bank and Trust Company. J. W. McLean, chairman of Liberty and Banks of Mid-America, is a former chairman of the Oklahoma Newcomen Society. Serving as honorary treasurer for the state group this year is Paul E. Scott, senior vice president of Liberty.

Presiding at the black-tie dinner will be Dr. Eugene Swearingen, professor of free enterprise, school of business, Oral Roberts University.
