AN INCREASED CONTRIBUTION RECOMMENDED. At the meeting on Wednesday morning Council- lor Jose (t he chairman) and Councillors Smith-Jones and A. T. White were present. It was stated that the amount actually spent up to the last quarter was 9448 on the Accident Ward, and it was esti- mated that JE220 would be required for the next quarter. Nuise Sykes, superintendent of the ward, was present, and said that two fully-trained nurses and one assistant nurse devcted the whole of their __1.1 _1 time to the seven beds that are at present, proviuea in the Accident Ward, but the same number of nurses in a proper hospital could look after 20 beds. —Mr Smith-Jones commented upon the fact that tke particulars given included certain extras which oould not be counted as maintenance in the ordinary sense. There was no doubt that in tke past a large number of cases came from the local public works which were now being completed.—The Chairman advocated an increased subscription to the Nursing Association, instead of taking the Ward over.—The proposal would mean the creation of two separate bodies—an undesirable feature in itself; aDd inasmuch as the affairs of the Ward had been satisfactorily adminis- tered up to the present it was not advisable to [change—Councillor White agreed with this view, and believed that the public generally were per- fectly satisfied with the Nursing Association. -Mr Smith-Jones also gave it as his opinion that, without doubt, the Nursing Association could manage things better than the Council itself.- Eventually the Chairman proposed that the present subscription of JE400 be increased by JE150 for the year 19CO, and that if it was found during the year that the cost was far exceeding this amount the Council could again re-consider the matter. -Mr Smith-Joues seconded this resolution, which was uuauimously agreed to.—Mr J. Arthur Hugbes, however, stated that he did not think the pursing Association would undertake the respon* Nihility of the Accident Ward oa such terms.
