L. KNICKMEYER They built it on a hill at the northeast edge of the city: a main hospital building with nurses' quarters adjoining: red brick buildings looking out over a valley of productive farmlands. And they called it, appropriate- ly enough, Valley View Hospital. That was in 1938. In the 24, years since then, little but the name and location have remained unchanged. Wings have sprouted from the main building in all directions. One tentacle has reached out to the nurses' quarters, which have now become a maternity hospital. The original 50-bed capacity has been expanded to 169. The nursing i Kemfer, administrator of Val- ley View Hospital, played a large part in the reorganization that put the hospital "on feet' financially in the late '40s. Staff staff has been increased from 15 to 147. Most of us take it all pretty much for granted. There's Valley View; we check in for repairs, maybe, once in awhile; or we stop by during visiting hours to -see a friend who's having a bout with the doctors and nurses. But patients seldom realize the size and complexity of the organization that's taking care of them. Few of us are con- scious of the concentrated plan- ning that goes on, the coordinated efforts that are necessary to bring the appropriate care to the appropriate patient at the appro- priate time. It's like a problem in military logistics. It's a matter of keep- ing track of safety pins, aspir- in (ablets and fly swatters. It's a matter of disposing the nurs- ing forces in the most effective manner to care for the various patients occupying the place at any given time. It's a matter of setting a break- fast egg to boil so that it will reach the patinet in Room 206 as a three-minute egg. It's a matter of ordering flank steaks at a crack. And it's a matter of bringing the technical skills of dozens of different people to bear on the single problem of one patient's disability. It's the drama of the emergen- cy room and surgery, with the in- tent surgeon and assisting nurses under the bright lights of the operating room. and it's the pa- tient day-to-day mopping of corri- dors and laundering of soiled lin- en. It's some 260 full-time employes, plus enough part-time workers to bring the whole work force up to the equivalent of 275 full-time persons all directing their ef- forts to the -use and benefit of one single person: Joe Blow.

Formation of a new defense pact, probably embracing 10 na- tions, is expected to be the central issue up for discussion in the meeting here Tuesday and Wednesday of foreign ministers of the Organization of American States. US. officials'said all'20 countries now active in the OAS is an outcast will be represented. Encouraging Administration authorities are reported encouraged by sound- ings on the Caribbean defense pact concept made in New York this week by Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Rusk is said to have found widespread interest in new steps to deal with the continuing build- up of Soviet military might in Cuba in support of Prime Min- ister Fidel Castro. Latin Amer- ican foreign ministers are report- edly impressed and concerned by Castro's rapidly expanding ability to make serious trouble in neigh- boring countries by shipping out Communist agents and arms for subversive attack on anti-Commu- nist governments. Caribbean Worries Worry is greatest in .those coun- tries which 'touch or are close to the Caribbean. Those most com- monly mentioned by officials here for'possible participation in a new defense arrangement are -Guate- mala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nic- aragua, Costa Rico, Panama, Co- lombia, Venezuela, and the Do- minican Republic, together with the United States. -This speculative'group'of coun- tries does not include Mexico, where officials recognize exist- ence of considerable though they hope declining pro-Castro sentiment.

The meeting will be held in the Trails Restaurant and all they met at Punta Del Este, Uru- guay, last January. The confer- ence urged the American nations to strengthen their defenses and to cooperate as may be necessary or desirable for that purpose. Seeks Endorsement What Rusk would like from the foreign ministers meeting here Tuesday and Wednesday is a gen- eral consensus, if not a specific endorsement, that a defense or- ganization in the Caribbean would be a good thing. Rusk and his aides have sought to discourage plans for any struc- ture as elaborate or formal as that of NATO, but otherwise they now strongly support the notion of a concerting of resources to tight- en defensive chains about Cuba.
