Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Siptemlur 27, 1971-------------- Central laundry at city hospital By IIUDY HAUtiENICDEn Stall Writer A centralized laundry com- plex lo service southern Al- berta hospital laundry needs will be installed al Ilic Lelh- bridge Municipal Hospital this year. Lawrence L. Wilson, Alberta commissioner of hospitals said the construction of the facility, to be used co operativcly by the hospitals to cut laundry costs, will begin in about a month and a half. I The project is a pilot pro- grair to study the feasibility of introducing similar schemes throughout the province by the Alberta Hospital Services Com- mission, he said. The Lethbridge program's success may set the trend lo- wards centralization of olher hospital departments in order to reduce hospital operating costs, Mr. Wilson added. The laundry facility, capable of handling four million pounds of laundry per year, will cost about Mr. Wilson outlined expand- ed hospital laundry needs in southern Alberta at a recent regional hospitals meeting. Current laundry cleaning costs at hospitals range be- tween 15 and 34 cents pel- pound compared with an esti- mated cost of seven cents per pound at a centralized laundry.

Mr. Wilson said hospital laundries are not being centra- lized for Ihe salie of centraliza- tion. Similar centralized laundry facilities have proven success- ful in Saskatchewan, Ontario and the United States. Hospital operating cost sav- ings resulting from the pro- gram, which will be phased hi ovtr a seven month period i after the completion of facili- i ties, will help reduce the tax I burden on Albertans, he said. I Participation in the program i is not compulsory, Mr. Wilson said, but added he would visit those hospitals not participat- ing and explain tlie savings of the scheme to them. During the meeting a ques- tion was raised asking whether the commission had looked into the possibility of economic fail- ure of the scheme. Jt was point- ed out similar programs had failed elsewhere. Mr. Wilson said studies com- pleted by the AHSC virtually assured the program's success. The scheme's value was also questioned because it would re- suit in unemployment when hospitals currently operating own laundries joined the centralized program and laid off staff. About 18 people in southern Alberta were employed in hos- pital laundries, Mr. Wilson said, many of them part-time people with other hospital duties.

Historic CP Rail station, home buildings turned into useful., colorful facilities By MARGARET LUCKHURST Staff Writer The monotony of long trips across Canada by CP Rail pas- senger service was broken by the frequent station-stops, tlie pulling-off into remote sidings and tlie friendly waves from work crews as they patched up tics and Ihe roadbed in re- quired areas, which, mere often than not seemed a thou- sand miles from the nearest electric light. Travel by the old steam lo- comotives was more in- triguing than the later, effi- cient but characterless diesel, particularly to youngsters, be- cause Uie lowly wail of the whistle and the impatient "BLUE WATER, WHITE DEATH" hunt for the Great White Shaft COMING SOON AVE 4 eib'ST .3375100 chuff-chuff of the engine at stops seemed to give the big machine an aura of being ac- tually alive really "horse- powered." When that b i g, long snout from the water tower lowered to give the engine 3 drink, it gulped it down like a thirsty camel filling up to go the next distance before being watered again. Today tlie efficiency of the diesel has eliminated water j tanks, the whistle has been re- placed by a Watty-sounding horn which isn't at all spine- tingling, and the stops the trains make are few and far between. As a matter of fact, many of the familiar maroon-colored stations have been abandoned, as computerized, faster travel made them obsolete. Utilily sheds, section fore- men's houses, and small flag stations over the years have generally become little more than antiques from a former era, as railway service has been updated and modernized. But what's happened lo all the thousands of buildings OUTI- ed and operated by the CPU? According to the railway's engineering department most of the buildings, including the homes of station agents, have i not been left lo moulder in towns or along tlie tracks in the isolated bush country of northern Ontario.
