Community Hospital Project
Status Told By
Site Committee s Chairman
Completion Of Plans Awaiting
Advice On Amount Of Funds To Be
Available, C. Of C. Forum Learns
Architect's plans for the new Douglas Community Hospital
may be in the hands of the local committee by July 4. After that,
when bids will have been advertised for and construction started,
completion of the Hospital may be expected in seven te eight
These are the estimates of Kenneth W. Ford, chairman of
the site committee of the Douglas Community Hospital, who
spoke to the Roseburg Chamber of Commerce Monday at the
forum luncheon meeting. Ford was introduced by Dr. Roy E.
Hanford, president of the Hospital Association.
Ford said ne wished to bring
people "up to date" on the Hos
pital's activities since close of the
Hospital arive last summer, sev
eral committees were appointed
to carry on the organization's
work. Among them was the site
committee, headed by Ford.
Ford said his committee was
concerned about locating the pro
posed new Hospital at a site
where it could "sell service" to
the community. The site which
f seemed to satisfy all requirements
' was "the Bellows property," lo
cpted on Harvard Ave., abutting
the west city limits.
Advantages Pointed Out
i Advantages of this location are
'its proximity to necessary utili
tieswater, electricity, sewerage,
gas, paved streets and the fact
that the ground will not have to be
leveld. The location is convenient
to the city and is 'regarded as a
"good business site."
"Although we paid a good price
for the property," said Ford, "it
is better than many sites we
might have gotten free." He
pointed out that the high cost of
the Hospital demanded invest
ment in a location which would
bring business to the institution.
Next consideration was the se
lection of a qualified architect
and the studv of hospitals else
where, that fill the same basic
needs of the proposed Roseburg
Institution. Ford's committee, com
posed of Henrv N. Jaconson,
Buckley Bell, Dr. J. M. Boyles
and Frank Ashley, went to Cali
fornia to study new hospitals
Tentative Plans Drawn
As planned, the Douglas Com
munity Hospital will be a one
story structure, for economy of
operation and expense of con
struction. Fourteen basic floor
plans were drawn by the archi
tect lo specifications of the State
Board of Health and federal au
thorities. Completion of plans was
at "a standstill," however, until
the organization knew "how much
monev it had to spend."
Ford referred to the federal
grant-in-aid, to be allocated the
Community Hospital on recom
' mendation of the State Board of
Helath, following a hearing at
Portland recently.
As plans now stand, the new
hospital will have an H-forma-

In the Days News
IN White Plains, N. Y., a house
wife (a Mrs. Mary Alves) was
called for jury duty. For serving
on the jury she got $3 a day. It
cost her $5 a day to hire a baby
sitter for her three children.'
She stood it for a week and
then appealed to the State Su
preme Court, which after hearing
her case released her from
further service.
IT seems fair pnough.
Jury duly Is PUBLIC duty. The
purpose of juries is to settle dis
agreements. If we can't settle dis
agreements peacefully, modern
society will break down, and we
will go back to old law of the
strong right PRIVATE ARM.
Under the system of government
by law (in which the facts are
determined by juries) the strong
""right arm is the PUBLIC ARM.

Court Decision
Puts Jake Bird
Nearer Gallows
One more of Jake Bird's num
bered days and another of his
dwindling hopes were lost to him
With outward calm, the con
victed ax slayer yesterday heard
Judge Sam M. Driver deny his
petition for a stay of execution.
Bird is sentenced to hang Fri
day. It was the second card to drop
in the space of a week from
the burly Negro's once seem
ingly limitless deck. Only a week
ago, the U. S. Supreme Court
refused for the second time to
review Bird's trial for the slay
ing of Mrs. Bertha Kludt Oct.
31, 1947.
Since his arrest, the shrewd
transient has fought a bewilder
ing series of delaying actions
through every court which would
grant him a hearing, and suc
ceeded in gaining two stays of
execution. Seemingly, he has one
chance left.
Although Judge Driver denied
a certificate of probate cause so
Bird could carry his case to
the U. S. Court of Appeals in
San Francisco, he told the Negro
that he could send a petition
direct to the appeal court.
That, Bird promptly declared,
he would do. The necessary rec
ords are to be delivered to him
In his customary courtroom
manner, Bird parade) forward
and back before the judge's
bench yesterday, arguing he was
denied due process of law in con
nection with his murder trial at
Tacoma. Judge Driver was moved
to comment on the "intelligence"
of the man before him, but not
to stay his walk to the .gal
lows. Soon after he was brought to
the state prison, signed confes
sions were obtained from Bird
that he took part in or had knewl
edge of at least 43 murders, most
of them In the midwest.
Two Drivers Cited After
Collision Of Their Cars
Drivers of two automobiles
were cited to appear in court,
following an accident which
heavily damaged their cars at
9:10 p.m. Monday, three miles
north of Roseburg.
State Police reported that a car
driven by James Ernest Makin
son, Melrose Route, and James
Riley Smith, Roseburg, collided,
as Smith was pulling onto the
highway in front of Makinson.
Makinson was cited for having
no operator's license, and Smith
was cited for failure to yield the
right of way, according to the
officer's report.
Aside from minor cuts and
bruises, neither man was injured.
Perjury Charge Against
General Meyers Dropped
The government has dropped
its perjury charges against
former Maj. Gen. Bennett E.
The wartime air force purchas

income tax evasion. He will be
