Commission determination ol the county application for an administrative and professional zone for approximately 450 feet of Cen ter street frontage will follow a scheduled public hearing. The county's request for approval to locate on this site follows more than a year of search effort by both the county and the city with city officials hoping to find a suitable location within the civic center. No mutually agreeable site in that locale was ever found, at least at a price the county said it coula afford, and the present 3 ! ;-acre site was revealed as the final choice. The area is presently zoned for multiple family residential use. It adjoins the new Department of Motor Vehicle office on the south which is an AP zone.

Membership is open to Redlands Community Hospital has received a total of $280,522 in cash paid on pledges in the 1957 expansion campaign and will go ahead with further remodelling work Ed Jury, hospital administrator, announced today. Mr. Jury said that a survey of pledges to be paid this year indicate that there are sufficient funds in sight to undertake re­ modelling of the laboratory, making of a new recovery room and doctors' library and lounge. The hospital board of directors at its meeting last week authorized the work done. Hospital maintenance crews will undertake the job.. Mr. Jury, in reviewing the expansion campaign, said that there were 1115 cash contributors and 1443 who made three year pledges, a total of 2560 persons joining in support of the hospital. Total at $455,041 ' Total cash contributions at the time of the campaign were $69,802 and total pledges were $385,266, a grand total of $455,068. Of the pledges $280,522 have been paid leaving $104,743 to be paid this, the third year. There will be some shrinkage in this amount due to people moving from the community and for other reasons. To proceed with the expansion program a bank loan of $125,000 was made and $52,500 of that remains to be paid off. This leaveSj outstanding pledges of $52,253 to finance further remodelling. Because the main need was for additional bed space the first expansion project was the construction of a 38-bed wing. Also, a new- X-ray department was built. These two building projects plus equipment cost $365,000. After this work was done the medical record office was moved to new quarters and a chapel for use of family and friends of pa tients in the hospital was built. This chapel, which features a stained glass window made b y Juds'on studios in Los Angeles, will be ready for dedication some time next month. The original goal of the expansion campaign was $500,000. As the amount received did not reach that sum, three projects remain to be accomplished. They are: ad dition of three operating rooms, a pediatric unit and dining-confer ence room for the staff. Redlands Community Hospital is a non-profit institution operated by citizens of Redlands. It is not tax supported. Hospital' charge's are sufficient to pay operating costs, but major expansion projects have been paid for by gifts from people of the community.!
