New Clinic Building.
—Ground breaking ceremonies were recently held at the site of the $750,000 air-conditioned outpatient clinic building addition to the Lloyd Noland Hospital in Fairfield. Clinics to be housed in the new building include pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, internal medicine, and emergency. Their removal will make possible an additional 40 beds for hospital patients in the main building. Funds for the new building were given by the Tennessee Coal and Iron Division of the United States Steel Corporation, which in 1951 presented the hospital and a cash contribution for working funds to the Lloyd Noland Foundation, named for the late Dr. Noland, founder, and first superintendent of the hospital.
—The University of California Medical School will hold a conference on general surgery, June 15-19 ($75 fee) at the University of California Hospital, San Francisco, and a pediatric conference, June 22-26 ($50 fee) at
