1 1 STORM LAKE OUT TO GET VETERANS HOSPITAL AWARD Inducement Will I n c I u d Gift of 160 Acres for Site of Buildings. STORM LAKE, March. 10.--This community has become an' active and enthusiastic seeker after the general veterans' .hospital ·, to be built-somewhere'in Iowa under the terms of an act passed by congress last week just before adjdurmheht. Proof of this enthusiasm was proi vided Saturday night when om Storm Lake citizen, not yet named offered ".gratuitously }60 acres o unencumbered land near the city as a site for the hospital if its location is acceptable to the veterans' bureau',/. . · ; -'. ; . - · : ' . · ·'. ' ' ·'.- · A committee made up of American Legion and Chamber of Commerce members gave out the following statement Monday: "Storm Lake feels sure that If meritorious locations are considered carefully, the local site will' be found to be outstanding. On Three Railroads."' "Storm Lake is located on three railroads that lead out in all directions, the'M.- arid St,'L..north, the Milwaukee south, and the Illinois Central east arid west Thia latter road has branches leading direct to Omaha and Sioux Falls and the direct main line leads to Chicago and Sioux City. Thus; : it will'be seen, Storm Lake is connected with all the centers of population in the states to be served by the Iowa, hospital. . ; . : · "In addition to the railroads there is an unexcelled system of roads which are or will .be" paved. Federal highway No. 71 passes.thru Storm Lake, as do state highways Nos. 4 and 5. Three inter-state bus routes are now plying thru Storm Lake on regular schedules and are using our city as an important terminal. "So, for transportation facilities, Storm Lake ia ideally located. --·; In Central Location.. "Local boosters are also of the opinion that a hospital located at Storm Lake .would adequately serve the.needs of veterans over a wider area~'than almost any v other location that has been suggested for the hospital. Southern and eastern Iowa are already quite well served by the institution .at Knoicville. Northwest Iowa should be considered lit the location.'of the nevv institution. Besides, ;.;eastern: Nebraska, eastern Soum Dakota and southern Minnesota/ jcouid all be easily served so far as their veterans are concerned by the hospital being placed at Storm-Lake. "By comparison the beautiful lake here has not been highly commer- .^cSalized.-vFor -that "reason,'-* most enticing site is possible on the very banks of the-lake. Storm Lake citizens stand ready and willing to do all any .other city of the,state will to aid ai getting the hospital here-and sincerely believe they have a location that is one of the most advantageous to be had from all angles to be considered."
