Hirt Is blowing his horn again after shedding 43 pounds from the 333 he he checked Into Medicaf College of" Virginia for surgery. He says he hopes to lose another 43. The surgery achieved a bypass of the smoll Intestine, which absorbs on estimated 30 percent of what Changes planned pr centre LONDON' I'CTI 'The Fleet Street iirca of London, heart o f Bril mn's national news- paper industry, has liacl EL rad- ical face-lifting in the tost few years there aye more .such nrcliiteculr.il changes to come. It's not so much Fleet Street itself hut the labyrinth of small thoroughfares on ei- ther side of it that has under- gone change, with big office buildings replacing antique s t r u c t u r e s of Dickensian quaint ness. The aiea around Fetter Lane, for example, has taken on tlit1 appearance of a minia- ture Manhattan following years of redevelopment. Hemmed in on the western edge of this district are mel- low hits of old London like Dr, .Samuel Johson's Ifith-cenlury house ami innumerable build- ings perennially associated with the English law. On Die eastern fringe Is a 17-storey structure now ap- proaching completion in Shoe Lane. This is to be the London In- ternational Press Centre and its backers are h o p i n h a t eventually dozens of news organizations scattered in nooks and cran- nies all over Fleet Street will make their business homes at this one location. SEEK TENANTS The centre's backers are looking for potential tenants among London-based journal- ists representing either non- British organizations or United Kingdom groups with headquarters outside the capi- tal. The initial tenants are ex- pected to take possession in December, with annual rent calculated at a square Foot. Service charges would bring this to Milk River holds rate at 75 mills MJLK Council, fol- lowing what Mayor Cam Mc- Kay calls a ''tight has held the 1972 l.ix rate to 7.5 mills. The mayor said there will be a slight incroa.se in water and sewage rates. The town has purchased 375 acres of land immediately north of the townsite which will be soon developed a subdi- vision for residential and in- dustrial expansion. In the near future negotia- tions for the purchase of the golf course will begin. "We expect lo have (he new sewage lagoon completed by (all, "the mayor said. "This will be financed by debenture bor- rowing.11 There nnt he any oiling of sti c-cLs tlii i year. If those si reels already oiled proved sattsiaciury t h c entire town will he oiliifl in 1973, he said. Also offered are conference and social facilities along broadcasting studios, all in a building which already domi- nates much of the Fleet Street area. Fleet Street has h c c n n focal point for press activities since about 1500. But the new centre may be going up at precisely the time when some newspaper groups and organizations are spread- ing out in decentralized fash- ion across wirier areas of Lon- don. This new trend is taking one national paper and a neus agency to the south hank of the River Thames, roughly o n e -h a 1 f mile from Fleet Street, later in this decade. Another big daily plans to move lo a fresh location north of London's traditional news- paper neighborhood. UKOE RELOCATION The trend among British planners generally has been to encourage employers to lo- i cate their offices in future outside the densely-populated metropolitan area if possible. However, development pat- terns around Fleet Street still point to it as a district firmly connected with daily journal- ism, hook- publishing or with the printing industry as a whole. This is the nature of many of the new offices west of Shoe Lane. And to the imme- diate south of the Inierna- t i o n a 1 Press Centre, both Bcaverbrook Newspapers Ltd. and The Daily Telegraph have lately been moving into new office space. This i.s especially true of Bea v er brook ne w spap er s, a company founded by the late, Canadian-horn Lord Beaver- brook. The company, which owns the Daily and Sunday Ex- press, has been steadily ex- panding its quarters back from Fleet Street, whore its shiny black main building has become a landmark since its construction as a quintessen- tial period piece in 1931. The International f r e s s Centre gives the impression of a cluster of touer.s soaring high above a low-slung confer- ence centre. IS FIRM International Press Centre Ltd. is hilled as a non-profit I company founded in lOftfi. The project as a whole Is financed by an insurance group anrl hns so far cost .tfi.'J million (Slfi.M One project spokesman con- i tended that the rents being j asked are i much as ,iO per cent lower than those charged in ihc fin- ancial and h u s i ness area known as the City of Ixmdon, The press cenl re's confer- ence hall will seat l.fXX) per- sons. A helicopter landing part is planned for the centre's roof and there will be two pubs. The company in whose name the new building is Ix-ing constructed was formed by the Foreign Press Associa- tion of London, I he Press Club and the Newspaper Society, which represents the regional ami London suburban press.
