Drazkows k i Jr.. superintendent of G rand View, explain the hospital's proo- lems and the possible solutions. It was noted by Drazkows k i that a special election on the hospital proposals will be held on Sept. 20. Drazkowski spoke as follows: "For several years G rand View Hospital lias been unable to comply with thc rules and minimum standards of the Michigan Department of Health and the regulations of the State Fire Marshal. Late in 1963 the Depar:- ment of Health would not renew aur license and certification. Aft- tr meetings with state officials an agreement was reached for a temporary license.

HMk- niorey avail-, able for that purpose. For tlie; current fiscal yea? Michigan jets: S350.000 and 1 know there arc at] least 15 large city hospitals that: are trying to get it. The act. al-j so allows states to use remodel-j ing money for new construction;; but docs not permit new con-| struclion funds to be used for re-; modeling. In order for a hospital, to be eligible for a remodeling; grant it must be inspected by a Hill-Burton official and mu.-,t have a rating of at least 70 out of a possible 100. A short time ago Grand View had a preliminary inspection. The unoffi c i a 1 rating was 17. "That briefly explains the Hill-Burton program and you ly surmised we a chance in t li e , e ^• l J. 1 ha ' onl -' 1 91 ? lonk » with the understanding there would be a complete renovation, of the hospital or a new one by the end of 1966. In either case. there would be full compliance. "Initially it was felt that the' hospital could be remodeled and' upgraded, but a thorough analv-l sis and study by competent architects, governmental officials and other experts in the hospit a 1 i federal government. These bonds, like the general obligation bonds, will be issued over a period of 30 years, but instead (it being paid by tax e s they will be paid from hospital earnings. "In our opinion this plan of financing is the most economical and tail 1 because it extends the indebtedness to all the p e o p 1 c tor thi 1 next 30 years. It will nut plat'.t' a burden on one genera- and let the next generation; a hospital for noth i n g ; people of this area have: Grand View since 1924 but those who paid taxes from to 1930 paid for it. As we at it. those people paid foi; 15 years and only had the hos-| pital for six of thc taxpa\ ing ; years. F'or thc hist 35 years people have had the hospit a 1, without one cent ot taxes. Taxes; for thc new hospital will not he levied until 1967 This is when | thc hospital is scheduled to, open. The financing plan les-j sens the burden on taxpayers by ; requiring users to share in th.? cost. This will be a way t'or ; people from out of the County to pay a share. We particularly think of the Iron County residents. "Now that you know the total cost and plan for financing, let 1 ;?; analyze it in terms of cost to the] individual taxpayer.

Cadet Grenfell is one of 1.500 cadets participating in the extensive six-week program which will Family Receives More Aid Offers YPSILANTI <AP> More help is at hand in the fight to keep 7-month-old Tina Lillie alive. The problem of transporting two drugs from Detroit to Tina's home here was solved Tuesday. A Detroit food vending company (Servomation' of Detroit, Inc.,) is undertaking the responsibility. The company was not alone as a volunteer Scores of individuals and organizations offered to aid in seeing that Tina got the drugs every two weeks from World Medical Relief, Inc. of Detroit. The vending company is es- especially adapted to help Tina. It operates refrigerated trucks. The trip to Ypsilanti is a small item in the distribution system of the company's eight Michigan divisions. Aid-to-Tina ofiers streamed in upon publication of the story of the plight of the baby girl and her family. Tina, one of six children ot township firemen Eldred Lillie, 36, suffers from cystic fibrosis. There is no known cure for the disease. It causes an imbalance of the pancreas. The victim's lungs clog with mucus. Tina lives in a vapor tent, bieathing a medicated mist. An Evansvllle, Ind., drug manufacturer supplies a third drug for Tina. The promised drug transportation aid took some of the burden from the Lillie family. Tina's father drives a truck on his day off. The mother also works. This is done to help pay the medical bills. The Llllies are ineligible for public welfare because of their employment. . be b Ste. Marie. j Ed Lehto.

Even though the; building appears to be in good; condition it simply does not! meet the standards of today o | modern hospital. In order to see ; this, a person must look beyond the surface and through the eyes of doctors, nurses, mainte-, nance men food service and other hospital workers, and look at it in comparison with other community hospitals in M i c. h- igan. i • "It is difficult and costly to: meet the standards of modern medicine in a hospital designed more than a half century ago. While we feel the quality of our patient care is commendable, and we have many complimen- < tary letters from patients. in-1 specters and others to bear this > out, I can tell you it is accom- j plished the 'hard way.' P o o r 1 y i located services, small roo m s. | and constant major breakdowns make it difficult in our day to day operation. Hardly a week goes by without some m a j o r breakdown. "From a financial standpoint new construction is the only sensible solution and I think you will sev; why before we finish talking. Minimal correction of all deficiencies was estimated by architects at a little over S467.000 but this would reduce our bed capacity to 54. To think of a 54-bed hospital is ridiculo u s when our average occupancy for the first six months of this year has been 64 and as high as 84. Remodeling with an aclditi o n was also considered. The lowest estimate was 8793,000 but this was considered unwise because of the great difficulty in remodeling and integrating the facility into an efficient, economical and functional unit. "At this point you are probably thinking this is a lot less than the cost of a new hospital. You are right, but in order to see why we say new construction is the only sensible solution we have to tell you a little about the Hill-Burton program. "This is s federal program that provides grants, not loans, for remodeling and construction of hospitals.
