SITE FOR NEW HOSPITAL The corner of Pilgrim and For tune streets, South Perth, would be the location of the proposed South Perth Community Hospital, subject to the approval of the Governor-in-Council (Sir James Mitchell), said Mr. W. C. G. Thomas, a member of the South Perth Road Board, at a board meeting last night The cost of the hospital, about £10,000, was being sought by donations from South Perth residents, he said. A scheme of weekly contribu tions of 1/ or more from the 4,500 householders of the district had begun, Mr. Thomas added. About 80 to 100 voluntary col lectors were helping in the scheme. Almost £3,500 had already been collected and paid into the hospital trust fund. It was hoped that by Christmas £5,000 would have been raised.
