Preston will use the $1,500 award to obtain photographs for her upcoming book, “In Retrospect: The FSA Photographs and American Visual Memory.” The book, a history of the Farm Security Administration Office of War Information photograph collection, will be published by Smithsonian Institution Press.

Vitter, professor of computer science at Duke University. The new dean, who will start July 1, will replace Carl Locke, who is retiring after 16 years as dean. Locke plans to remain a professor at KU. __________________________________  Arkansas City: One dead, another injured after shooting outside bar One man was killed and another critically injured in a shooting outside the Latino Club, an Arkansas City bar. An unidentified man died at a local hospital Sunday night after he was shot once in the face and once in the side of his upper chest with what appears to have been a small-caliber handgun, police Chief Oren Skiles said. The man is believed to be from Oaxaca, Mexico. The other victim, identified as Hugo Torres, 33, of Arkansas City, was taken by helicopter in critical condition to a Wichita hospital after he was shot once in the face. The shooting apparently stemmed from a fight that started inside the club. Two suspects are being sought, Skiles said. __________________________________  Gasoline prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.32 at the Citgos at Ninth and Iowa streets and 920 N.
