At present the hospital is being paid $9 per day for a' welfare pa tient. Actual coat ia 117.04 a day. In the seven months ending the last of April this year, 108 welfare patients were cared for at the hos pital. Twenty-four, or 22.2 per cent, were from Morehead City and M oc 77.8 per cent were from beyond the town limits. All of Morehead City's ABC store revenue guet to the More head City Hoapllal, while revenue from other ABC stores in the . - I ? ? county goes directly to the towns in which the (tore ia located. More head City residents are also taxed for support of the hospital. For this reason, hospital trustees say that more revenue must be obtained from elsewhere to keep the hospital from going in the red. They feel Morehead City residents are already paying their share. Loss to the hospital on welfare patients for the six months end ing March 31, ISSt was $7, OSS 34. When the amount budgeted by the county welfare department for hos pitalization is used, then the hos pital gets nothing for welfare pa tients for the remainder of that fiscal year. The hospital U not asking the full $17.04 per day for care of wel fare patients. A figure at $13.78 per day has been suggested or an estimated $25,500 a year.

Hospital authori ties are becoming alarmed over the increase in the number of wel fare patients. For the first six months of the hospital's current fiscal year there have been M welfare patients as compared with 66 for the same Criod last year. Patient days are ! for the same period this year aa compared with 631 for test year. The welfare officials say that they cannot meet request* (or more funds for the hospital be cause most of their money is budgeted to match federal appro priatlons. The hospital suggests that to meet the deficit the county refuse federal funds or Increase county taxes. Otherwise the hospital will have to raise its rates to make those who can pay, p*v ,nr
