Kiwan ians hear plans of Hospital the building plans of the Venice Hospital were outlined to members of the Venice kiwanis club wednesday noon by president Christopher Magee. A we were overcrowded during most of the Winter season with Beds in the solarium and in All the corridors a he said in part a and that is not a satisfactory Way to operate a pointing out that Hospital patients have increased by about 20 per cent every year in the past Magee said a perhaps 15 More Beds with some slight increase in the ancillary facilities would do the Job for a year or maybe even two years. Without too much expense we could put up an addition to hold 15 Beds with perhaps a Little increase in the size of surgery or Laboratory space. A but by the end of two years we would face the same situation All Over again and again two years later and so on a he declared a until we came to the end of possible building because we had used up All available space. A we would end up with a sort of Patchwork Hospital a he added a with the various facilities scattered Here and there without any continuity of services. That certainly does not serve the Best interests of either the patient who uses them or the staff that operates the Best plan in the opinion of the directors. Magee explained was to decide How big a Hospital Venice must eventually have and plan now for the size building the Hospital will eventually need. A your architects Tell us we have land enough to support a Hospital of 200 Beds. This takes into consideration. The size of the necessary parking space necessary for doctors staff and and that is what the directors decided to do a plan for a 200-bed Hospital and Stop there he continued. A we think it would not be Wise to get too big a Magee confided to the Kiwan ians. A your Hospital is a personal and Friendly one. Our patients Are people our own friends and neighbors a not just numbers a he pointed out a and that is the Way we want to keep it. A Tutor and proteges a John e.

Estimates a we have no finished plans a he explained a and no bids on the work that might be done but the estimates for putting up the first increment. Run to Over a million dollars. This includes a two Story building with a portion of the ancillary facilities completed on the ground floor and 30 of the eventual 60 Beds made ready for use on the second floor a he added. A just How we Are going to raise that kind of Money Here is a question a he said As he explained that this was a private Hospital. A everything we have or bought has been paid for by people in this Community. A we Are not tax supported. We have no endowments. There has to be a limit to what we can borrow. To get our Cost Down to some figure we think we can raise our building committee is now reconsidering our plans a Magee declared. A it May be possible to Cut Down the size of the building without sacrificing its efficiency or it May be possible to build Only the Shell at this time finishing nothing on the ground floor a he continued. A i cannot say at the moment what the final plan May be but whatever it is it is going to Cost a lot of although Many people object to government handouts the speaker said it May be possible that financial help can be secured from the Federal government under the Hill Burton act where As much As 40 per cent of the total Cost is allotted to the various states for use in Hospital building. Poor position a at the present time Sarasota county is in a very poor position to get anything because of the amounts that have already been Given to the Sarasota Hospital a Magee explained. A the fact that we have no connection with the Sarasota Hospital does not at the moment seem to make any difference. But the director of the department in Tallahassee that does the distributing is planning to make us a visit in june and after that we shall know More about our chances than we do now a he added. In conclusion the Hospital Board president said. A this Hospital of ours is a Community affair. It was planned built and equipped to take care of the needs of the Community with Money Given us by the Community. They were not All Large gifts. In fact relatively few were Large a but there were a great Many of them. We could not have had a Hospital if that had not been the Case. A and the situation now is the same As it always has been. The hard fact of the matter is that if this Community wants an adequate Hospital the Community is going to have to pay for by w. Earl Aumann the full Story of Why it is necessary for Russell amp Axon of Daytona Beach to redesign the proposed new water treatment Plant of the Venice water works was made Public thursday by City planning director Paul a. Youngberg. Speaking at the weekly meeting of the Venice Nokomis rotary club at Fisherman a wharf restaurant Youngberg made it Plain at the outset that he was not criticizing the City a consulting engineers. A Russell amp Axon in designing the new treatment Plant simply followed the old reliable methods in use in hundreds of water treatment plants throughout the United states a he said. A but it left much to be desired in the opinion of the then superintendent of the water works Orville l. Ives and myself a he added. Dusty expensive a fall of the chemicals came in bags and had to be unloaded and handled by hand a Youngblood explained. A this is a Dusty Job As Well As an expensive one a he added a and each Day some 3,500 pounds of these chemicals would have to be carried up a ramp and dumped into the treatment vats. A that required extra labor and in addition the bagged chemicals of a necessity had to be weaker than chemicals in liquid form a he continued. Although the engineers at Russell amp Axon stated the Cost of automatic handling of chemicals would be prohibitive for a water treatment Plant the size needed at the Venice waterworks Youngberg said he and Ives Felt there must to some More economical Way of handling the chemicals than by hand. They were Given permission by the Venice water Board to visit other water plants in search of new ideas. A we visited Nany water plants around the state a from the Best of them to the worst ones a he explained a and came Back with Many new ideas. We were convinced that buying the chemicals in bulk and storing them was not Only cheaper but better since it assured us of stronger chemicals. No frills a we decided we could eliminate some of the frills in the original design and after we had marshalled All our facts we met with the engineers. They agreed most of our ideas were practical and cooperating wholeheartedly with the water Board they soon came up with new ideas that would automatically handle stronger quicklime and Alum in liquid form a he added. A but the soda Ash gave us a problem a Youngberg said a since soda Ash cannot be stored in bulk As it hardens and becomes useless in a Short time. Through the chemical company who furnishes us with the soda Ash we Learned of a product of theirs liquid caustic soda which is being used in Power plants in Florida and throughout the United states. We knew a he pointed out a that Power plants require a much higher Grade of water for their successful operation than supplied in City water Youngberg then related How both Russell amp Axon and the state Board of health at first gave an emphatic a a not to the use of caustic soda claiming it was too dangerous to handle. Board okays he and Ives persisted however that it was Safe to use caustic soda with the proper Safe guards and after the so of h had made some simple tests a letter was received from them not forbidding the use of caustic soda and not approving it either. A that was All we needed a Youngberg told his fellow rotarians a and with the approval of the water Board and the Venice City Council we employed a nationally known research chemist Clarence r. Henry to make exhaustive tests on the use of caustic soda in 10 Gallons of Venice Youngberg explained Henry has been employed by the Miami waterworks to make periodic tests of its water for the past 15 years. A a Henry a report emphasized caustic soda could be used in the water treatment process in place of the commonly used soda Ash without increasing undesirable elements in the finished water. In fact one chemical could be used As Well As the other he said. A a Henry a report also pointed out that caustic soda will not Only Cost less but will take less Lime in the treatment of the water a further meet with engineers Youngberg then related How water Board chairman Ralph e. Anderson David Hamilton and himself flew to Jacksonville on May 9 where they met with a Russell amp Axon Engineer and the state Board of health. A after Reading the report of Henry whose opinion they or Gard very highly the health department gave its unqualified approval a Youngberg said. A the Florida Industrial commission also approved the safety Angle since the liquid caustic soda will be pumped directly from the delivery tank truck into our storage tank where it will be fed automatically into the treatment tanks the speaker also pointed out that through the cooperation of Russell amp Axon a new Sand filter has been designed that Renews itself automatically. A was a result of the cooperation of the engineers and the state health authorities who listened to us with an open mind Venice will have the most modern completely automatic water treatment Plant in the state if not the whole United states a he concluded.
