These men looked over sites on the east side of Greenfield Lake, at' Silver Lake and in Win ter Park yesterday.

Members are urged and all qualified sojourning Master Masons are cordially Invited to attend. By order of the Master. John H. Edge, Secretary Virginia and upper South Caro lina, in which territory the hos-j pital will be located, Farrell said, j They will go to Southport, from Wilmington, for their last inspection stop before returning to their home offices and pre paring their report. The final decision as to where the hospital will be located will be made by General Omar N. Bradley, vet erans administrator, and Gen. Paul R. Hawley, acting surgeon general for the VA. Farrell said that the final de cision as to where the hospital will be placed will be some time in coming forth. He said it may be made public in around six months. It has been pointed out betore that it is likely that this hospital will be located in Eastern North Carolina, since the VA has the largest territory to draw from here and since other veterans facilities in this area are located in the west. The site must be comparative ly seclusive and at the same time readily available to city trans portation, water and sewerage facilities, etc., it was explained in a previous report. A dispatch from Washington indicates that Raleigh and Wake county were making a strong bid for the hospital, planning a conference in the nation’s capital with the site investigating com mittee to be held later in this month. In the United States, farm woodlands alone have a greater area than the combined forests of Finland, Italy, Norway, and Sweden. __ Entertaining and Instructive It’s Coming!

You don't expect a medal for TIlATi Too bad we sorta forget when we grow up. Lots of times, we get so wrapped up in our own problems that we don’t even notice what’s happening right around us. For instance, that aged widow down the street, who lives on a meager pension. When she became ill last winter, she would have found it hard to manage without the visiting nurse. Or take the hospital to which she was sent. Did you know the hospital loses money even when the average patient pays? It must be supported by outside funds. Or those happy kids you saw going off cm hikes last summer. They would have had only the streets to roam in if there hadn't been money to run our youth services. Social agencies... youth services... clinics... hospi tals ... homes for the aged and the blind... visiting nurses... and score? of other Red Feather services need money to carry on, too. That’s why it’s so everlastingly necessary to have a Community Chest. Once a year—with one gift—you can be a Big Brother in the family that makpg up this community.
