Scranton. They include a $321,000 grant for the Clearfield Hospital and $1,646,000 for the Centre County Hospital at Bellefonte. 1 4 The allocations, which pay one third the cost, were recommended by the state's Hill-Harris advisory committee and approved by Max Rosenn, public welfare secretary. The funds are allocated on a priority bajsis ; which consider hospital needs and local ability to meet those needs, Scranton said, y r" - - J < - Jennifer Mc-Hall, Cathy Smolka, 13, Coll Eight general hospitals, 10 Ion g-t er m - c a re fa cilit ies, three modernization projects, two di- one re T ^ 1 * -4 �project were On the other hand, he pointed out that there are still segments of the business and professional community which have not yet subscribed. He emphasized that all business and professional men stand to benefit by a large measure from the increase in payrolls of the Curwensville industries. Continuing, Mr. Marra said: "Unlike most other industrial campaigns, the amount given is not received as an outright gift or contribution, but rather a loan that will be repaid." He noted that the same method was used during the drive to raise funds for the expansion of Kent Sportswear and that it has worked quite successfully. Kent has become a thriving industry for the community and those who supported the drive are getting their money with interest. The $50,000 is needed to finance the purchase by the Development Corporation ,of the former Knit-Tone building in South Side to house a .new' industry, Superior Pet Products, Inc., and to make heeded renovations to the Clear-Poh plant which is being purchased by the corporation. � j back Streets in Town \ CURWENSVILLE --Curwens. ville Borough Council plans to ordain 21 additional streets within the near future, most of which heretofore had no names. r Although all of the streets had been maintained by the borough for years, a recent survey made by Street Commissioner Russell W. Brown revealed that they had never been included officially as part of the borough highway system. By ordaining these streets, the borough will be entitled to additional Liquid Fuels Tax funds for improvements. The streets to be ordained, most of which were named by the Street Commissioner Brown, are as follows: North to George Maxwell from George, Maxwell north to curve, Rqar Meadow from Meadow from Second? northwest of 250 feet i 1 rJ. - \ '1 factur
