ANGLE lildi tor i W INDIAN HOSPITAL Dreams of many years past about a great new lindian medical center on the Cushman site are about to come true. Plans announced this week by the U. S. Indian service show that one of the finest medical units ever built by that agency wil- be erected on the grounds at East 28th street in Tacoma. Work has already started on the found- atiOns of the new plant and it is expected that it will be completed during 1942. This magnificent group of six brick struc— tures, costing a million dollars or more, will take ’the place of wooden buildings put up half a cen— tury ago. The completed center will include a five story hospital, a three story nurses’ quar- ters, attendants" quarters, laundry and shop build- ing, commissary building, garage and several doc- tors’ cottages. The main hospital building will cost nearly three-quarters of a million dollars. In its five stories. will be beds for 350 patients. The new hospital staff will have seven doctors and two in- ternes and a staff of 50 nurses. It will give gen- eral medical treatment, surgery and orthopedic treatment to adult Indians throughout Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Alaska. The Cushman site is a striking one in the eastern part of the city. occupy a prominent place on the grounds over- looking the harbor.

He stood there and pondered, knowing full welllthat the counfly would rebuild the bridge as fast a humanly poSsible, but that regardlessl ,of how fast the county bridge crew worked, itl :would delay his own log deliveries some littlei itime. i The operator did not ponder for long. Log- .gers do not have time to stop and meditate much Eif they are going to get the round stuff to the booms. He did what countless others of his craft ghave done; he went to work. He picked a place inear the wrecked span where a log bridge could 7be “thrown” across, and he grabbed a brush hook and started personally to slash an opening to the site. And unless tradition falters there will be a temporary bridge across the river in a day or two so the trucks can get across.

Proposals are also ad- iva‘nc’ed'to cut down the production of cars even imore drastically than, origmally planned, and to lplace a tax on the sale of each new and second- lhand car—the latter a “deterrent”, tax, aimed *more at cutting down the purchases than at rais- fing'revenues. It may be naive in this period of 1 “Alice in Wonderland” economics to invoke sim- lple rules of mathematics and logic. But it is hard} ito see how the government proposes to rais high-i ier revenues by raising tax rates and then greatlyi icurtailing the operations that are being taxed.
