Health Facilities Projects Approved DBS MOINES (IDPA) The state health facilities con- struction review committee has approved 13 hospital and nursing home building proj- ects, and has rejected two. Approval means the pro- jects are eligible for federal reimbursement under the So- cial Security act on the por- tion of the daily patient cost attributable to capital invest- ment. The committee, in action taken last week, turned down proposed additions to nuring homes at Kanawha and Mt. Pleasant. Cost Estimate Frank Fair, director of comprehensive health plan- ning for the state office of planning and programming, said the projects were reject- ed because construction al- ready has been approved for more nursing home beds in the two areas, 100 at Kanawha and 150 beds at Mt. Pleasant. The construction review committee wants to see what impact these new beds will have on conditions before ap- proving any more construc- tion in the two areas, Fair said. The Kanawha Community Home had proposed a 20-bed addition to its existing 44-bed home, with the estimated cost of the addition pegged at Pleasant Manor Care Center in Mt. Pleasant had sought approval to spend on a 50 bed addition to its exist- ing 50 bed home. Projects approved included: Fifty-bed, addition, to. the Good Samaritan nursing center at Waukon to replace 16 beds for a total of 110 beds; estimated cost, A. one-story, addition, to house laboratory, physical therapy and patient examina- tion rooms at the Hancock County Memorial hospital at Brittfestimated cost, Fifty-bed addition to Crest- ridge, Inc., at Maquoketa to existing 50-bed home; estimat- ed cost, Twenty-four bed addition to Anamosa care center at Ana- mosa, which presently has 50 beds; estimated cost, Replacing 68-bed Delaware County Memorial hospital at Manchester with 58-bed facili- ty; estimated cost, Approval granted on condition hospital can obtain necessary Hill-Burton funds.

No renewals or re-assign- ments of leases will be made upon expiration, commission officials said Tuesday. The cabins, located on state- owned properly adjacent to the river in Clayton and Alla- makee counties, had long been a source of controversy. Encroachment began shortly after the state bought the land in the late 1930s, the commis- sion said, and by 1960, priva- tely-owned cabins and trailers existed illegally along the stretch. It said in recent years, owners have been assessed per year per lease pay- ments. for your patience Observance Set By Martelle Club MARTELLE The newly-nr-: ganized Martelle Community club will sponsor a July 4 cele- bration as its first project.

Again, thanks for your patience and cooperation. energy Iowa Electric light and power company Jones, route three Man- chester, Tuesday afternoon. The alarm was turned in at p.m. to the Manchester fire department, after the blaze was discovered by Jones' son, Steven; his cousin, Steven Wendt, and a friend, Rodney Johnson, while they were in a large barn on the farm. Fire departments from Manchester, Greeley and Dun- dee battled the blaze for three hours before bringing it under control. Firemen were able to save the unoccupied house on the farm and two hog houses. The 40-by 56-foot barn, with a 30-by 16-foot wing, a 24-by 40-foot barn, a pumphouse, tool shed and a 20-by 30-foot hog house were destroyed. About bales of straw and another thousand bales of hay were lost in the large barn, which was built in 1879 and remodeled in 1967. Firemen rescued about 40 sows and 200 baby pigs from the hog house, but could not save another 200 baby pigs. Jones believes the fire may have been caused by lightning which struck in the area Mon- j day night. The barn where the fire started was remodeled in 1967, but the northwest corner, where the boys discovered the fire, was not resided in the project. Lightning may have come down the lightning rod and sat there smouldering all night, Jones said, breaking into a blaze as the boys entered the building. The Jones family lives at a nearby farm. Part of the loss will be cov- ered bv insurance. By Harrison Weber DES MOl.NES ilDl'Ai Iowa Ls about to become lhe first state in the country to have a fully-integrated social services system. "When a person walks through the door of one of 120 lota) he will have all of the resources of the department available to said William Smith, deputy commissioner in the stale department of social ser- vices. "You might call it a one- stop service." By placing more control at the grass roots level the department hopes lo put an end to people getting a Smith said. I'nder the new reorganiza- tion plan, which started July 1. the social service depart- ment will have an office in each of the 99 counties plus 21 satellite offices. Supervisory Units The state will he divided into 16 supervisory units which generally follow the re- gional districts recommended by the state office of planning and programming. There will be ne adminis- trator in each of the 16 dis- tricts who will be located in the following communities: D e c o r a h Mason City. Spencer, Sioux City, Fort Dodge, Marshalltown. Wa- terloo, Dubuque. Davenport, Cedar Rapids. Des Moines, Carroll, Council Bluffs, Cres- ton. Ottumwa and Burlington. "This Smith said will "act as a go-be- tween advocate for the local office to the central or state office in Des Moines. The ad- ministrator will disseminate information on state and fed- eral guidelines to the person- nel within his or her district. Someone Available "People in the local offices will be able to respond to most inquiries; if they can't answer the questions, then someone with the necessary expertise will be available in each of Harrison Weber the 16 districts." Smith ex- plained. The change-over, he empha- will not lake place over- night. "We expect to have all the district administrators or- ganized and in place by Juno 30 of 1975, but it will take three to five years for full implementation of the full- service concept.'' Smith said. The deputy commissioner also emphasized that under this organization plan there will be no net increase in personnel. "The administra- tors." Smith said "will be a one-person operation who will have full responsibility for de- livery of services in that area exclusive of the institutions." Direct Services Each administrator will base social service programs on local needs. "We want ad- ministrative positions at a minimum. We want to have more people provide direct services lo Smith said. The reorganization will also place more stress on inter- agency cooperation, such as the state social services de- partment and the alcoholism commission. Under the reorganization plan, the state department of social services is being split into five divisions adminis- t r a t i o n management and planning, mental health re- sources, correctional institu- tions, and community ser- vices. The 16 district administra- tors will concentrate on pro- viding community services in- cluding families and adults, .youth services, mental retar- dation, Iowa Soldiers' home, income maintenance, commu- nity corrections and medical services.
