New Hospital Drive Begins Next Monday (Continued from Page 1) donation to the community by legal bequests, etc. "We are proposing to raise the balance, about $30,000, by private solicitation, volunteer contribution, of the people of the region. "That is the situation in Mason county. Residents of the region, or persons who rely on its facilities, will never come nearer, not even on a government donation (tax) basis, of obtaining a minimum-standard, medically-modern hospital for less money. Seriously Out-Dated "The. present hospital structure is out-dated, so seriously so as to be one of our foremost community problems. If the funds are not forthcoming, the new building cannot be completed. It will be built as far as funds permit. So the issue is: What kind of a hospital do YOU want for yourself, your family, your friends— if and when the need arises?" Frederic Read, chairman of the ways and means committee for a new hospital building, explained that ward and township committees are being set up as rapidly as possible— to start the general drive a week later, Monday, Oct. 9. "The personal interest of our campaign workers will tell the story quickly regarding what results we can obtain," he said. "The drive is so big, the workers so large in number, that each person must be "relied upon to assist earnestly and to do his or her own job well. "We are organizing to see everybody and at the end of the drive we will know definitely how interested our residents are in the hospital project. "It is far from 'just another drive.' It is a once-in-our-Ufe- time campaign. For 10 years we have talked new hospital needs. The next two weeks, however, will tell the real story." 96 Children Are Checked at Clinic (Continued from Page 1) arrangements for the nurses. Chairman of the clinic was Probate Judge Owen J.

Ex-CCC Enrollees Are Army Prospects WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.—(/P) —War department officials indicated today the army was looking to the CCC for some of the nearly 50,000 recruits sought in the next two months. Only those who are ineligible for re-enrollment in the CCC will be solicitated, however. Offcials said that, if a youth with qualifications had reached the end of his CCC service, there was no reason why he should not be offered army ser- TEMPERATURE TODAY AT 11:00 Weather Forecast Lower Michigan: Generally fair tonight and Sunday; cooler In southeast and east central portions tonight; light to locally heavy frost tonight; rising temperature Sunday.

H. PECK) LANSING, Sept. 30.—(/P)—Political fortune-tellers are beginning to speculate over the part Melville B. McPherson, veteran chairman of the state tax commission, may play in the 1940 Republican state campaign. McPherson's following accounts for a large bloc of rural votes and it includes a liberal number of canny local politicians. He demonstrated anew his influence with the State Association of County Supervisors only Thursday. It was McPherson, a past president of the organization, who read to the supervisors the resolutions they adopted without dissent. It was McPherson who gave the keynote speech of the meeting, a talk on one of his pet topics, "home rule" in government. In the 1940 campaign, the question will be whether Governor Dickinson—if he becomes a candidate to succeed himself— can gain the support of this and other cogs in the organization that was once Fitzgerald's. Some observers express the opinion that McPherson wants only to perpetuate his membership on the tax commission, which is a good job as state jobs go. McPherson's friends and some other state officials say. however, they do not doubt the genuineness of his desire to occ- cupy the governor's chair some day. Some believe Dickinson •will not run again. If he decides against seeking another term, his endorsement would be a distinct advantage to any candidate, for the 80-year-old governor swings a bloc of independent, rural, church and dry votes that the best diagnosticians agree would assure him the nomination in a primary which listed three or more contestants. McPherson is dry, rural and a member of Dickinson's religious vice, regardless of the civilian status of the CCC. To do otherwise, it was contended, would deprive CCC youths of opportunities offered other civilians. How concentrated a campaign would be made to enlist CCC enrolles depended upon local recruiting officers, officials said. , faith. Would he be the candi- ! date who would split up the ' field for the governor, observers are asking themselves, or will he be the one to receive the governor's "blessing," a sort of political crown prince? And. should McPherson decide to cast his lot with the governor, would his organization of rural politicians provide the added strength Dickinson might need to discourage any other hopeful who might become a candidate? By PRESTON G ROVER WASHINGTON—The current panic among some of the higher-ranking army officers over the state of national defense isn't shared 100 percent by others who have n hand in i keeping the enemy from our ! doors. I Maneuvers at Plaltsburg and iManassas. disclosed, among (other things, that the top; ranking: reserve and national- i auard officers — those from i colonel up—aren't especially '<K>od. There were exceptions. , One reservist general at'.Mun- ja.ssas, we have been told, did (a smart job. j But it was no surprise to the j ranks of the army to find this | was the case. It is a common 'joke in the army that fully | half the colonels and generals I in the reserve would be put to i selling Liberty bonds should war start. Some of the others would be told to stay home and take care of the kiddies. Some would be worth a thousand times every dollar of government money spent in training them. However, nobody expects the early stages of our war to be fought wi. h armies commanded by reserve or even national- guard generals. There are in the regular army a well-known i group of upper-bracket officers I who will stack up pretty well i in a fight. They can compute how much railroad and highway space it takes to move 20,- jOOO men with equipment to a designated spot. They know I how to go about getting food i there. And if the 20,000" must I he expanded to 200,000 quickly ;they won't be altogether at a 'loss. | * # * I The big difference between ithe present condition of national defense and the condi: tion in 1917 lies in other direc- jtions. Then we had an army i completely unacquainted with Ithe problems of dealing with the civilian personnel that ; makes up the real national de- I fense. That condition has been largely corrected. ! A widespread R. o. T. C. or- 1 ganization has been set up in j the colleges on a voluntary I basis. Regular array instruc- I tors have learned how to I adopt army methods to civilian j dispositions. Out of those : collese groups, and from other sources, there has been built ,up a force of 120,000 fairly .well-trained reserve officers. I That is more than enough for a million men. When the World war started the reserve-officer personnel could have been loaded in a freight car—with spare room for four horses. These reserve officers, in turn, have demonstrated themselves able to train and command civilian soldiers. They I have worked with the C. M. T. JC. and with the CCC. * * * j Potential Soldiers 1 As to the potential trained I manpower, it lies largely in i two directions. Since the i Citizens Military Training i Corps was organized, 350,000 ! men have received varying j amounts of training. I An even greater potential supply is in the 2,500,000 men who have spent time in the Civilian Conservation Corps. i Recently there has been a lot of agitation to have CCC men i receive military training—for i instance, to learn foot drill and I gun drill. j We watched C. M. H. C. (youngsters at drill this summer. jThey learned the essentials of i foot drill in four clays, two | hours a day. Teaching them | to .shoot would take longer— (but not so terribly much long- jer. i Experienced soldiers insist that there is one thing new soldiers lack. They don't know how to take up outdoor camp i life after years in the comfort :of their homes. They get that knowledge in COG camps. They learn group living, how to give and take orders, how to get | along without pet foods. It i would surprise their mothers 'how fast they could be made into fighting men.
