Audience of Need for a

Declaring that a public hospital
was a necessity in any modern cofi
munity. I>r. W. S. ltankin. of I>ur
ham, chairman of rhe hospital sec
tion of the Duke foundation, made' a j
stirring address Monday night at the I
court liouse in a plea for the erection
of such an institution in Cabarrus.
His address covered every phase of j
the subject, both the physical aliil
moral side of the question being con
sidered. As a medium for reducing
sickness and death. Dr. ltankin showed I
that it would be a blessing to the |
people. As an uplifting influence in
the ethical side of a eommunity. Dr.
Rankin pointed out. that service In
the uplifting of mankind wns one pf
the chief builders of character. 1
On the more material side of t&e
hospital question, Dr. ltankin pro
duced figures in support of the state
ment that the cost would not be bur
densome. Taking the estimates as
high as there was any possibility of
the expenses ever going ill fie insti
tution, iit was shown that the people
of the county would have to contribute
33 cents each year in order to have !
the entire debt wiped out in twenty'
At the conclusion of the speech a
number of the local men present were
heard from and a>t the motion of
Judge Morrison 11. Caldwell, a vote
of thanks was extended .to Dr. Rank
in and a committee was appointed to
lake future action in regard to the
hospital. The committee, consisting

the committee appointed from the
civic organizations of’the city, intro
duced Dr Rankin, declaring that here
was a Cabarrus county boy whose
reputation was not only confined to
North Carolina but was nationwide
as well. .
Dr. Rankin's introductory remarks
were in expression of his pleasure at
coming to his ’home county in the
very outset of his work. He added
that he was glad to be here .'o work
for the sick. “If," said he, “the sick
of Cabarrus county could be gathered
here, there would he 700 in beds and
on cots. Os this 700 seventy would
be so seriously ill as to be hospital

the term. No one could look at this
and not recognize in it an opportunity
for ‘making the blind see and the deaf
In showing that the hospital was
a modern community need, Dr. Rank
in showed tlie re'mflrkable advance in
medicine since the 'BO or ’9os. A
community without a hospital was
putting itself bnck thirty or thirty-'
j five years, he said. In support of
I the contention that the medical pro
! session had learned much about dis
j ease, he gave figures in which it was
I shown that the death rate had de
creased from 19.6 per thousand in
1890 to 12 per thousand in 1925. A
community without a 'hospital was rel
egating itself to the ora when there
were no telephones and no automo
biles, he declared.
A modern community cannot get
along without a hospital, wns llie |
next point by Dr. Rankin. “In the <
first place," he said, "physicians are „
unable to equip themselves with the '
necessary facilities for the diagnosis i
and treatment of disease. They can 1
not have a laboratory, nor can they i
equip it. It would be wasteful if
each dofctor did have his own labora- 1
‘The way to handle this need is to 'j
pool the necessary diagnostic faeili- :
ties. Then there wouldl be a cen
tral laboratory and X-ray machine. ,
We can't .treat diseases until we can .
diagnose the cases and if there were a
hospital, there would be the necessary
‘jSurgery also requires elaborate
equipment which can not be had out
side of a hospital.” Here Dr. Ran
kin paused a moment to pay a tribute
to the private hospital. , If there had ■„
never been a private school, there
would be no public schools. In like
manner the privatfe hospital' was the
forerunner of the public hospital.
A hospital was also necessary. I lie
speaker declared, to maintain a med

The consideration of the cost of the
hospital was next taken up In the
address. In large eities, five beds
per thousand imputation was consid
ered adequate. In a community such
as Cabarrus, one bed per thousand
would be adequate. The average
in North Carolina, Dr. Rankin show
ed. Was .0 bed tier thousand.
That is, it was said, a hospital of
thirty jot forty beds would be suffi

tion of money to eqinp it, around
SIOO,OOO. Dr. Rankin's estimate was
that if the money were advanced by
the county, the yearly expenditure
for .twenty years would be as follows:
$5,000 for a sinking fund. $2,625 for
interest on money borrowed to build
R, and for maintenance. The
total expense would be $11,275, or a
cost per capita of 33 1-3 cents for
each inhabitant of the county.
The part the Duke endowment will
play in the scheme wns made clear
when he staled that the foundation
■would pay $1 per bed per day for
charity beds. This would lift the
burden of the charity eases off the
community, it was declared. In a
qirlvate hospital, there are oae-third
of the patients who are unable to
pay for .treatment, and »s a result of
this, the other two-third* have to pay
On the ethical side of the question
Dr. Rankin said that there was a
very real reason for sickness. “It
takes sickness and death to get the
beet out of human nature. Sickness
and death are the basis of character.
We couldn’t have sympathy if it were
not for need and suffering. There
would be no love without sympathy
and out of love comes service.” These
truths were made clearer with the use
of a number of stories bearing direct
ly on the question.
In conclusion, Dr. Rankin adder
that he was anxious for Cabarrus tc
take the lead in the hospital question
especially because of the influence ii
would have in getting Stanly county

come one of the greatest Thauksgiv

tic states. Although the meeting of .

fourth, these few contests have been <
such as to insure, along with .the 1
certain rise of Duke to a position of
prominence, the game becoming an
Time was this season wsert " un
knowing fans have pointed to the
game as one of little consequence
but those dreams have certainly 1
fluttered away. Duke's victory over 1
their rival Methodist squad at Wof- i
ford last week-end showed the the
world that Coach Herron has a :
bunch of real football players. It t
also showed that he has developed a 1
team that will come upon Richard
son field with as good chances to
win as the Wildcats themselves. >
Davitlson's margin of victory over ,
the Wofford team earlier in the |
season was only 7-0; V. M. l's was
9-0 and Dukes was 04).
The great holiday crowd that
watches the Thanksgiving day game
between Davidson and Duke will ,
also witness the final collegiate per
formance of eight of the best grid
men who ever wore the colors of the
Wildcat school. Six varsity men on
the Davidson team will sing their
football swan song while two others
who have garnered a letter and one
of more stars will join in in a chorus
that the Davidson students are hop
ing will be able to sweep, the David
son colors to a final victory.
Often throughout the past two
seasons the crowded galleries, usual- !
ly indifferent to the playing of foot
ball linesmen, have risen to . their
feet in thrilling testimony to the
playing of little "Red” Baker at
tackle and the smashing charges of
Harry Vance at guard. Both of
these men were placed on the ma
jority of the all-state elevens of .
last season and along with Jjm
Hendrik. Captain Wick Black and
Joe McConnell, will give a bit of
trouble to the pickers of mythical
elevens this year.
With three of his regullar backs

Coach Younger will have to hustle
next season; while the loss of both
of his varsity tackles, Laird ami

has made two letters at that posi

be a great blow to tbs» Wildcat team.
