" The Christ's hospital grounds are among the most beautiful In the city. They comprise about twenty acres in the heart of Topeka. The institution has a large staff of trained experts and specialists. It has done a large amount of charitable work and has been known for a gen eration in Topeka and Kansas as one of the great hospitals of the country. The meeting was called for the pur pose of approving plans submitted by Meyer J. Sturm. Chicago, a specialist In hospital architecture, for the new hospital and nurses' home. They were made following a topographical survey of the grounds by J. A. Campbell. The first building of the proposed group will be a modern, fireproof nurses' home at the corner of Tenth and West streets, on property given to the hospital by Mrs Vail, widow of the late Bishop Vail. The home will include as features cedar lined closets, rest and recreation rooms, shower baths, gymnasium and a dance floor. The main structure will be a mod ern, fireproof building to take the place of the wooden building which was the original hospital built by Bishop Vail. This will be located be tween the Kyle and Wayne bulldinss. The Kyle building wiy be used as the administrative building, Including ex ecutive offices, X-ray laboratory, and medical research laboratories. The Wayne buildh.g will be used as a med ical ward for housing "general prac tice cases." The new building will have a spe cial ward for diseases of children, and for special eurjrery cases. There will be contagious disease wards and ad ditions for the treatment of tubercular patients. A feature of construction will be a refrigerating plant extending thruout the building. Nurses will have ice packs, ice water and cold cloths, and they will be available at. a number of places on each floor. The system may be used to cool the rooms in hot months. The hospital is in no sense a sec tarian Institution. On its board and medical staff are representatives of many churches. Bishop Wise In a talk said: "This institution is one for service and not for profit. It has never made a profit: in fact, the Kplscopal church has gone into debt from time to time to sustain it. It is an institution for the restoration and the preservation of the lives of those afflicted, regard less of their affiliations with any church. What service can be more ennobling or desirable than that in which this hospital is engaged? We must go forward and be prepared for the new duties and accomplishments which are before us. "In addition to preparations for tu bercular patients, contagious cases. nervous diseases, maternity patients and general cases, it is desirable that wp provide especially for children who are afflicted.

Only the ground plans or a general layout of the plans were under consid eration at the board meeting held Monday night. The architect will be instructed to send on the plans at once. It is the intention of the com mittee to push the work with all pos sible speed. Estimates can not be ob tained until the complete plans are se cured.

After delaying promised action, Richard J. Hopkins, attorney general, has promised to present his complaints regarding legality of the stock selling plan of the Kansas Bank Holding Cor poration at a meeting of the state charter board this afternoon. Hop kins has failed to carry out his an nounced plan to seek early court de cisions in the case. When the bank holding case came before the charter board Monday, Hopkins asked further delays. Offi cers of the corporation asked imme diate action that they might have early decision as to the status of their case. Hopkins then agreed to appear before the board this afternoon and arrange for final disposition of his ob jections. Before he entered the hearing this afternoon Hopkins- apparently aban doned another of his plans. He said he had come to the conclusion that legal procedure would not be neces ary to determine the status of the company. He would settle the matter, he indicated, with his own lagal opin ion. "A general investment company cannot own or holdcontroIling siock in other corporations," said Hopkins. "It is in violation of the .anti-monopoly law and contrary to public policy. No lawsuit is necessary to decide the matter." Officers of the bank holding cor poration, tho, are nft satisfied. They point out that Hopkins launched an attack on their company without notice p.r hearing after many promi nent bankers and business men had invested their money and the blue sky board had approved the etock selling plan. Now they want the courts to render an early decision as to their status. They asked the board to direct immediate action to determine whether the attorney general's opin ions to the newspapers have sound legal basis. OS. CRAWFORD ISWEtf EB.

' Partisans on Committee Bring In Two Reports. Washington, May 18. Two reports, one by Republicans condemning the government's entire war-time nitrate urogram and charging reckless waste and extravagance, and the other by Democrats defending ir ana charging partisan bias by the majority, were presented today to the house' by a special committee which took up the investigation nearly a year ago. Along with Us 41 general condemna tions of tho government policy, the Reuubllcan majority, comprising Chairman Graham, Illinois, and Rep. Jefferies, Neb., submitted recommen dations for future disposal of the Mus cle Shoals' properties which Represen tative Garrett or Tennessee, the Demo cratic member, declared waa beyond its province. Mr. Garrett Indicates he would make a point of order against the report on that ground. Members said this would onen the way for the biggest political fight in the house since the war investigating committee was created. Claim Failure on Contract. Charging the air nitrates corpora tion, builders of the Muscle Shoals plant, with failure to perform its con tract, the majority recommended to congress that no further-sums be paid It on account, ana tnat civil suns o instituted for recovery and that the whole question of pay be threshed out in, the court of claims. It also was recommended that the government pursue such remedies as might be decided by the attorney gen eral. After asking congress to sell materials stored at the Toledo ana, Cincinnati plants and retain the Shef field, Ala., plant, the committee rec mended that the government lease the deserted villages built for officers at Sheffield at a cost of $12,000,000. The principal recommendation by the majority related to the big Mus cle Shoals plant, costing $70,000,000. Being too valuable to scrap the major ity recommended that It be leased and converted Into a fertilizer plant for the sale of products direct to farmers, with the right of the government to take it over in time of threatened war. Further expenditure at Muscle Shoals was opposed. POLICE LOOK FOIl BLACK IletXD- Kansas City Italian's Home Attacked With Dynamite. Kansas City, Mo., May IS.

CORN Oenerat selling of corn resulted today from declines in liberty bonds, the failure of a Kansas bank and from belief that railroad labor diffi culties -would be settled shortly. The Kansas bank failure attracted attention owing to reports that the collapse was due' to burdensome loans on wheat. Notice that the Chicago-Northwestern road had canjelled all restrictions against grain shipments to Chicago counted also as a bearish factor. opening prices, which ranged from c to le lower with July $1.7514 to $1.70 and September $1.0214 to $1.03, were followed, by a material further setback. The close was semi-demoralized, 3'.c to osjc net lower with July $1.004 to $1.70, and September $1.004 to $1.00. OATS Oats weakened with corn.
