The board had one recommendation for the coming year — a St. Olaf Women's Auxiliary might be organized. Dougherty pointed out that sustaining outside support can be maintained only if it is organised support. Some 86 Minnesota hospitals have active auxiliaries, in- eluding some of the best ones, he :ontinued. Opportunities Unlimited "Our Grey Ladies are providing' a wonderful service in the tiospital itself, but the opportunities for auxiliary service outside the hospital's walls are unlimited," he said. "We solicit your help in marshaling Austin's citizens behind an organization to sustain and strengthen our community hospital," he said. R. C. Alderson and Clarence Nockleby were re-elected to the board of trustees. The four factors of a hospital's well-being as given by Dougherty are: 1. Adequate buildings and modern equipment. "St. Olaf has both," he stated. 2. Sound management. Dough erty said St. Olaf has had 8 years of it. "This institution val ued at $1,850,000, employing 250 people and doing an annual business volume of nearly $1,200,000 does not run itself," he added. "The administrators, director of nursing services, executive nouse- keeper and dietician make it run well." Tribute to Pioneers 3. It must' have skillful doctors, who will cooperate constructively with the administrative staff "There is ample evidence of the high quality of St. Olaf's medi cal staff," Dougherty continued. 4. A hospital must have wide community support. Re paid tri bute to the pioneer Lutheran pas tors and parishioners who foundet the hospital and then recalled bow the entire community responded to the call for help in 1955 U build the latest addition. Dougherty said that 3,912 indi vlduals and firms contributed $378,000, of which 96 per cent ha been paid. "The most striking feature wa that 3,558 families made pledge of $36—one buck a month for 3 months," Doughery pointed out "This aggregated $131,000, an im portent sum in itself." Dougherty recalled that in 1955 there were 105 beds. The patien count on May 23, 1958 was 152— the year's record. The averag daily patient census has been 117 52, so there is still room for grow th. The problem of keeping pace will the community's hospital needs i ever on the trustees minds, h said, as he reported the purchas of Ulwelling land behind the hos pital for parking lots and future expansion. No Cash Reserve! The board president pointed eul there is ample working capita but no cash reserves for deprecia tion, replacements or expansion The mortgage on the building ha been reduced from $600,000 $530,000 and the hospital must earn $30,000 each year to meet th mortgage payments. This past year the hospital ne ted $24,257, $4,743 short of reti ing the $29,000 maturing paymen Any hospital must retire its an nual mortgage payments, replac obsolete and wornout equipmen and build up depreciation and ex pension reserves, he stated. Th major cost of expansion, he sail still must come from the citizens Dougherty commented on th last steps in the 1955 $1,395,00 construction program which ar now under way—the complete ov erhaul and renovation of Buildin Advertisement AdvcrtlMment Science Shrinks Piles New Way Without Surgery Stops Itch-Relifeves Pain Bftnr YM^.

Patient Car* Costs More The average per diem cost of patient care increased from $26.65 to $28.39. Two-thirds of the operating expense is for one item- labor, Hildreth emphasized.

During the year there were 7,117 patients requiring 42,941 days of care. The adult patients stayed an average of 6.44 days and the newborn stayed 4.56 days. Expansion in the past year included a new linen storage room In the area of the old X-ray de partment, expansion of the geriatric unit and new tub, toilet and shower facilities — also a fine new sitting room for the elderly patients.

Projects for the future are a new emergency room, new central stores area and a nurses' lounge The administrator thanked the many individuals and groups which have given time and needed items to the hospital. New Doctors Hildreth mentioned the addition of three doctors — Dr. Harold Paulus, Dr. Mansur Taufic and Dr. Rok Shin. New equipment in use in the operating room was also explained. Dr. R. R. Wright, president of the medical staff reported that much work has been done by the creditation committee headed by Dr. Thomas Seery in classifying the doctors as to their service in the hospital, he said.
