New Stanford Medical Center.—  Recently announcement was made that facilities of Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco are to be replaced by a modern medical center on University campus at Palo Alto. Campus location was selected to promote the closest possible relationship between teachers and investigators in all fields, as well as enriching the general education of medical students. Joint construction and operation of the combined Palo Alto—Stanford Hospitals in the center is expected to afford important economies and advantages for both the city and the university. The city's hospital facilities are to be financed by a 4 million dollar bond issue and Stanford's total facilities by a $21,950,000 fund drive (including a 7 million dollar endowment). The new Stanford Medical Center will be located on 56 acres of campus land. It will consist of three hospital and four medical school buildings, all interconnected with surrounding open courts
