I A report of the convention's has- ' pitnl committee called attention to the fact that while work On adding some 150 beds lo the hospital is progressing, it may be unwise to progress further in the face of in- ' creasing construction costs. i The commitlce added that il may also be necessary to curtail chanty work nt the institution. The report said that while the hospital's net operating income in- crr.iscri some 20 fwr cent over last year, operating expenses have gone up even farther, or 29 per cent. The committee said charity work amounted to some S53.003 dollars ' (cist year in addition to S15.784 in ' free service to BaptisL ministers.
