In outlining the proposition Mr. /Webster stated that congress has appropriated - funds for additional hospital facilities for veterans, of which Iowa will receive a part, an'd that while it is not yet certain that a separate unit will be constructed in Iowa, it is very likely that another plant will be established in northern or northwestem Iowa. Iowa has one veterans hospital at Knoxville. Mr. Webster read * several communications from Gen, Frank T. Hines,. administrator of veterans affairs, who is the head of the federal board of hospitalization,. which will definitely decide where the additional hospitals are to be built. These stated there will be an early disposition of the hospital matter in this state. The joint committee will begin immediately to draw up a brief of the advantages offered by Mason City for the veterans hospital. These will include transportation facilities such as railroads and paved highways, the availability of construction materials and the advan- ,tag;e%, J!fithe'ifiictitliat; the city has niea't';pacldrjg and sugar manufacturing establishments." ·'· , To Receive Offers. The announcement was made by Mr. Webster that the committee will be glad to receive offers of sites, including the price asked, prices at which land in the vicinity have been sold recently and the accessibility of water, sewers and other utilities. Attention was called to the fact that a tract of land of at least 20 acres will be required for the hospi- 'tal sites. The land must be situated so that trackage can be obtained to a heating plant.
