Care Still Best Buy Figures Give Proof of Declining Costs Iowa City—The State University of Iowa hospitals are now operating at their greatest capacity in providing medical and nospital services to the citizens of Iowa. More people are taking advantage of specialized medical care today than ever before in history. Admissions at University hospitals during the fiscal year ending June 30 reached 20,255, an increase of 2,272 over the previous year's total. Cure at a Bargain Gerhard Hartman, superintendent of the hospitals, points out that although costs for hospital and medical care have gone up, such care is still "the best buy on the market today." Hartman backs up his statement with figures. A case of uncomplicated pneumonia 20 years ago cost the patient $150. This patient usually spent 30 days in the hospital at $5 a day. Such care now runs close to ?15 a day. But even with this increase, the same case of pneumonia would cost the patient less money. Such a case today would require only 5 days hospitalization at a total cost of $75 to the HERE -d THERE Kanawha—Mr. and Mrs. Robert Larson of Mason City visited recently in the home of the former's parents, the Alvin Larsons. Mr. and Mrs. Larson were married a short time ago, Mrs. Larson being the former Florence Fountas of Mason City. Nashua—Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Jan. 4 r 1949 3 Mason City Globe-Gaictt*, Mason City, I*.

Five new divorce actions are listed on the January calendar as follows: Clco M. Cross vs. Wendell M. Cross; Iva M. Conway vs. Wayne Conway; Edith O'Neill vs. Harry H. O'Neill; Olga Marie Johnson vs. Clifton Clark Johnson, and Dorothy Livingston vs. Orville J. Livingston. GERHARD HARTMAN patient. "Thus," states Supt Hartman, "it costs more to run a hospital today while at the same time the net cost of hospitaliza- ion for our patients is lower." Much of the increased operating cost can be attributed to new "miracle" drugs of the past few years, especially penicillin and sterptomycin. Life savers in many present day diseases, these drugs are being experimented with and improved upon annually. Improvements cost money, and this cost is passed on to the consumer. Some types of penicillin have gone up in price 240 per cent. Drugs Used With Care Drugs require specialized ap- PURCHASE CAFE Eagle Grove—The Central cafe has been purchased by Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Koepsel of Dows. The Koepsels, who now have possession of the cafe, will make their home in an apartment above the building. Highest Quality H SALADA GREEN TET> Now Available in Package* and Tea-Bags plication. "Miracle" drugs are not home remedies, but must be administered by specialists who understand their application and action. Constant laboratory tests must be run and interpreted by doctors in terms of the patients progress. Such tests, plus the specialists required lor application, are making drugs cost a great deal more. Increases in patient care can be noted in recent figures compiled at the hospitals comparing the volume of service rendered in 1948 to the 1947 figure. Operations last year totaled 19,830, an increase of more than 2,000. Laboratory examinations increased by 8,000, reaching a total of 87,345. Patient-days (a patient occupying one hospital bed for a 24-hour period) totaled 259,198, an increases of 10,000. With the opening of wards formerly unused, the hospitals have increased their bed space to" capacity. Total capacity in the huge general hospital is now 669. Children's hospital has 215 beds, making a grand total of 884 for the 2 areas. Besides this space, there are 55 bassinets in the hospital area, bringing the overall total to 939 beds. Two newly developed hotel wards house 119 out-patients in temporary barracks near the hospital. More Care Available Education at*the hospitals has increased in all phases. There are now 112 resident physicians in training, all but one a veteran of the last war. Graduate nurses have increased by 90 and there are 20 medical interns in training. The new class of student nurses, numbering 126, is one of the largest freshman classes in the history of the school of nursing and a 20 per cent increase over the last class. Technical training is now available at the hospitals in a variety of fields. Besides preparing doctors and nurses for Iowa communities, there are educational programs for pharmacists, dieticians, hospital administrators, X-ray therapists, occupational therapists and other related personnel. These well trained individuals will one day use their specialized knowledge to provide beter health programs in communities throughout the state. Despite increased education at the hospitals, there is still a definite need for greater facilities. With new drugs and laboratory tests, a need has arisen for a course to train laboratory technicians. And, although a training program now exists in oral and dental surgery, expansion is necessary if Iowa's children are to be provided the thorough dental care they need and deserve.

If it has to be raced, it should be slowed down at intervals. Some people, however, treat their bodies differently. They go at high speed, constantly, never relaxing. This, of c-ourse, is a very bad habit, as the human body will not always stand the strain. Give your body a chance to rest, learn to relax. * Chiropractic should be included in your health program.
