Says Hospital Gain Too Small CHICAGO ( U P ) - T h e nation's hospitals are barely providing enough new beds to take care of (he increased population, according to a report in Hospitals, official organ of the American Hospital Association. The report was written by Dr. John W. Cronin, chief of the division of hospital facilities in the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Despite millions poured into hospital construction under the Hill- Burton act, which' is administered by Cronin's division, only a "very minor net gain is occurring annually." He said the provision of hospital beds is having a hard time keeping up with the "rapid growth in population and mountaing obsolescence" of old hospitals. "We arc making some inroads on the backlog of need for general hospitals according to current yardsticks of need," he said, "but are losing ground with respect to institutions for mental and chronic care." In 1940, th^ nation had a deficit of nearly 900,000 beds, and the j c u r r e n t deficit IK about SSO.OOO, Croning pointed out. He warried that the nation must m a i n t a i n an intensive program of hospital construction because "anything less than an adequate demand based on true need will leave us vulnerable as a people and as a nation to the assaults nf disease, pestilence and war."

"I like everything about him-that great, big hunk of man!" said Lana. With urging from Barker, she let her hair stay its chestnut color after she dyed it that way for a motion picture in Europe"," The Flame and the Flesh." The onetime blonde now is a permanent brownette "unless a movie role calls for me to be a Monde." Some fans sadly mark this as the passing of an era. "It's easier to keep," she explained. "I can wear more colors and every hair doesn't have to be n place. And I won't have to both with bleaches every week. Not Recognized "In Europe I was hardly recognized! It was wonderful. I could go any place. People would look and then look again as if they veren't sure. And when I came home, I said hello to one friend and he shook my hand vaguely and walked away. He didn't know it was his baby, his old friend!" Recently Lana made her TV ;!ebut as a sexy dancer on CBS' "Toast of the Town" to celebrate MGM'S 30th anniversary. The network sent a limousine to pick her up. 'My secretary and I got in the car and the man said, 'P a r d o' n, but aren't we supposed lo wait for Miss Turner? I said, 'Look, look, it's me." He was so flustered he lost his way gelling to the studio." --o-When you are buying readymade curtains of a patterned fab He, make sure thai the design is matched in each pair of curtains and that the arrangement of the design units is the same in all the pairs you buy.
