Joseph hospital, land- mark at-Trinity and F streets for more than half a century and more recently a "white elephant" in the hands of the Board of Edu cation, will fall before the wreck- crs hammers, starling next week. William D. Forbes, real estate broker, who purchased the prop- erty from the schools at an auc- tion several months ago, said this morning he plans to construct a duplex on the corner in a development. Chairman Mathew Santino of the board auctioned the property off "as is" for This was decided to be the cheapest way out after bids on demolition were opened and showed the low figure to be in excess of Two lots involved, 120 by 122 feet. Given to District The building was given school district by Ernest Pierson, contractor, with the thought thai it could be used for administra- tion offices. When investigation showed the remodeling costs would prove excessive, it was pro- posed to burn the old place down in a training course for city firemen. This proposal was rejected, how ever, due to the hazards volved and the board decided to advertise for bids. Board mem- bers then decided receiving 550 was a better deal than paying to have the two lots cleared and then attempting to 'make use of the vacant property. When the property was accept- ed as a gift by a former boart of education, Santino warned it was a "white elephant." Forbes said this morning he had entered into a contract with the Bay Construction Co. to demolish the old building, starting Aug. 15. Forbes, in addition to his real estate business, is president of the Serv-All Corporation. "We're going to put the lot back into the resi- dential d i s t r i c he declared "and in addition to the duplex we hope for a nice house next door." Forbes said that from what he has learned, the old hospital was constructed in 1908. MONDAY EVENING, 'AUGUST 6, 1962 Of F SHORE WEATHER From Cape Blanco to.
