Among other recent improvements worthy of note is a Laboratory and incubator for making blood cultures and aut Ogenious vaccine which was established during the summer of 1938. This Laboratory is used chiefly to make a vaccine from germs in a wound for treatment of the same wound. Established in december 1938, was a Nursery for new born babies.

Many that were responsible for the building of the Hospital Are now dead but by their visions and their deeds others Are now living. Draft Bill to give Federal Cotton away four million Bales would he Given Back to Cotton growers Washington Jan. 21.�?lf a a Bill to give government loan Cotton Back to the Farmers perhaps As much As 4,000,000 Bales of it in a single year a was being drafted today by a group of Southern senators. Reports went about Capitol Hill during the week end that this surplus Relief measure had received an encouraging word from the White House. The plan similar to that endorsed recently by a Washington gathering of Cotton producers would work something like this for compliance with the governments regular acreage quota system the Farmer would receive Federal Benefit payments a in Money. For a still further red Catlon in planted acreage he Wotila get another payment a this time in Cotton the same Cotton that the government took As collateral on Money it loaned to the Farmer in earlier Days of the new Deal. Thus reasoned sponsoring senators it would accomplish at least a three fold purpose first a reduction of 1939 production. Second a Means of cutting Down the governments heavy Cotton holdings. Third a More generous system of benefits for the Farmer. To turn 4,000,000 Bales of Cotton Back to the producer a assuming a 1939 Price of $40 a Bale a would be the equivalent of government benefits amounting to $160,000,000. The Means of financing such an outlay were at Odds even among Southern sponsors of the plan. There were those despite objections from president Roosevelt a who championed a system of processing taxes. There were friends too for various other forms of taxation. But there were others ready to Tell the Senate and House that despite heavy Federal expenditures for agricultural programs there still was not a fair share comparatively speaking for outright Relief payments for the Farmer. This group contended a disproportionate sum was being paid for Urban Relief without compensating tax Revenue. Senator Bankhead a Alaa Leader of the Southern Cotton group estimated the present program would provide less for 1939 Cotton payments in a runs of than in the last seas one of those at work the loan Cotton proposal. Another group suggested a plan to sell loan stocks Back to growers at far less than the loan rates in order to induce curtailed production. The government has nearly $$00,000,000 invested in Loans on about 1 1,000,000 Bales this Quantity would Supply Domestic and foreign demands for american Cotton for an entire year.
