Hold Meeting '
The trustees of the Duplin Gen
eral Hospital met in regular session
here Tuesday night and viewed
temporary plans for the new hos-j
pital. The architects have com-!
pleted the initial drawings and
they are in Raleigh this week being
studied by the Hospital Care Com
mission. Plans generally call for
a three story structure, somewhat
in a T shape. It will face East
towards highway II. The struc
ture will follow somewhat conven
tional colonial lines, with not ex
treme modernistic trends. How
ever in detail it will be complete
ly modern as to service and acco
modations. When these drawings
are reviewed in Raleigh they will
be returned to the architects for
a second and more complete draw
ing. The Times hopes that be
fore too long we can publish a pic
ture of the building.
The Trustee designated the Wae
camaw Bank in Kenansville as the
official depository for the hospi
tal and asked the Commissioners
to set up funds for the project in
its next budget. -
