Just a few weeks ago the ward was empty of mothers, and only one baby was in the nursery. This morning there are 11 mothers there who have given birth, and three more on the "expecting" list. As a rsult, the smaller "reserve" nursery has been pressed into service. An efficiency expert no doubt would say there needs to be more "control in production" to even the load.

But figuring many readers would like to know, we went to the expense this morning of call- Liberal Accident Claims 3 Lives LIBERAL — A Garden City woman died of injuries here Saturday night following a car-truck accident which also took the lives of her son and grandson, and left two more grandchildren in critical condition.
