Publisher HOWARD VOLAND ..............................  ......... Editor Only One Way To Vote On Hospital Dist. -- YES Many words have appeared in The Monroe Monitor since Janu- ary 15 in support of the formation of a public hospital district in this area, with the one thought in mind; let us take a solid forward step in assuring ourselves that the Monroe General Hospital will continue to be operated as a general hospital serving this growing area. Our January 15 editorial urged upon the county commissioners, the owners of the hospital, not to place the institution on the auction block. We asked them to give the community one year in which to come up with a solution to the problem. At that time we suggested the formation of a public hospital district as the only possible solution, under the circumstances, to guarantee the continuance of the hospital operation here. The idea caught on. Fifteen hundred citizens of the valleys, by petition, asked for an election on the hospital district idea. The county commissioners assented to the "year of grace" idea and then went along with the hospital district plan, calling a special election for May 24. During the interim between the December 25 announcement by the commissioners of the sale of the hospital and today, many thou- sands of words have been written and published in this newspaper about the public hospital district idea in an effort to bring about thorough public understanding of the district plan. We urge your support and ask you to vote YES on the proposition Tuesday because: 1. We believe that the plan is fair and equitable to all residents of the valleys. 2. We believe that the district is able to give small tax support during the first few years of operation, an amount that will be scarcely felt by the taxpayer. 3. We believe that there is a genuine need here for a general hos- pital to serve this area now and in the growing years to come. 4. We believe that of all considerations pro and con, that the most important is that the hospital district way is the ONLY way widfin the resources of this area that a hospital service here can be assured the dtizens of the valleys. The election Tuesday will take only a moment of your time and your vote is important since 1300 votes must be cast in the election to make it valid. Our prediction is that less than 10 per cent of the vote will be opposed to the district idea, but 1300 votes are needed, just the same, to make the plan succeed.

The beam that carries these conversations is received and transmitted from point to point by "dishes" like the one pictured above. Some of our installations carry 240 'conversations simultaneously. Micro-wave, one of themost efficient of communication systems, offer many advantages. It provides dependable telephone communication in any kind of weather over any kind of terrain. And, because it does not need poles or cables, it cuts installation and maintenance costs. To date West Coast has invested more than 2  million dollars in modem-as-tomorrow micro-wave transmission equipment-another evidence of our continuing in- vestment in improvement and modernization to bring'you the finest telephone service available anywhere in the United States.
