Arant, of county residents, and has Leetown, W. Va.; a daughter, discharged quite a number to go Gabrielle L. Arant, at home; a back to their homes, after their conditions had shown real im- prevement following their stay at the home. He said the home lost abouf $70,000.00 during the period of April 11 and Sep- tember, but since then it has made a great comeback and is now showing a slight profit. Bryan stated that while at the present, the hospital is in "good condition", financially he can see real problems ahead as a result of so much governmental interference which in turn places so much added respon- sibility upon hospitals to meet all the new rules, policies and regulations. He said hospitals are more incumbered and regulated than any other business in the country. FIVE From Page 1 caused damage to another due to a partially broken utility pole.
