This building, called Gun Jung Jan, is described by Chae Kyang Oh, director of the o111co of the former Royal Household, as "one of Korea's most important cultural asrete." It has lust been reopened to the public after having been dosed because of its deteriorated condition from time and weather. In 1910 when the Japanese annexed Korea, there were more than 500 Palacesl but upon Korea's resurgence as a nation in 1948 there were only slxtaen-.-most in serious need of repair and point. To assist in restarofion, The American-Korean Foundation established an Arts and Monuments Proiect in 1952.

The Governor's State Health Planning committee will met Nov. 10th in Bismarck to hear requests from various state communities seeking ~ederal assistance for constructing and equiping hos- pitals and related facilities. The state has a sum of slight- ly more than $814,000 in fed- eral aid to apportion to various projects that fall under the class- ifications of Public Law 725 and 482. The committee hears the re- quests and decides how the funds should be allocated on the basis of need and by setting up a prior- ity list of the projects. Chairman of the committee is E. J. Haslerud, Fargo. Arnold O. Goplen, director of the health department's division of hospitals, said many corn- lotments for the fiscal year end- ing June 30, 1961, for projects that fall under Public Law 725, the regular program. This regular program includes five categories. They are gen- eral, mental, chronic and tuber- culosis hospitals and public health centers. A sum of $305,578 has been received for the current fiscal year for projects under the amended Public Law 482 pro- gram. This includes hospitals for the chronically ill, diagnostic treatment centers, nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities. Of these two amounts, he said, all but $614,339 is obligated to previous projects. Goplen noted North Dakota has received more than $8,700,000 in federal aid allotments for hospital purposes since the plan started about 13 years ago. --F]-- A panicky person is doomed prevent panic, plan and rehearse for trouble in event of fire.

The North Dakota Aeronautics commission has filed a l~-page reply in opposition to North Central Airlines application to temporarily suspend service at Devils Lake, with the civil aer- onautics board (CAB) Washing- ton, D. C. The state aeronautics commis- sion asked the CAB to dismiss North Centrars apphcation on the grounds; (1) that the air- line had failed to make a show- ing that immediate relief was needed; (2) that the airline was doing better financially at Devils Lake, on a comparative basis, than it was doing on an overall system-wide basis; and (3) that no mileage would be saved if the service was suspended, ac- cording to Harold G. Vavra, di- rector of the commission. North Central Airlines in mid- October asked the CAB to tem- porarily suspend its operations at Devils Lake, N. D Rockford, Ill and Spearfish, S. D. The airlines' application stated that service to the three cities is costing the U. ~ government $100,000 annually. The state's brief points out / T~IOU~IT ~,vI~T-H/N'HAD ,-- ~A~OLI~HT uj / 7~L ) YOU that Devils Lake accounted for only five percent of this amount, and with a vigorous promotion effort, the airline should be able to make a net profit, the director said. The commission's reply states that Devils Lake and its trade area accounted for $4~,68~ in rev- enue for the airline in the past fiscal year with expenses charg- ed against the stop amounting to $50,392, resulting in a small loss of about $4,706, which can easily be eliminated if the City and its trade area generates sev- eral hundred additional passeng- ers annually, Vavra said. Vavra said about 50 percent of the Devils Lake passengers come from surrounding towns, and that practically no proma- tional work had been done in the 50-mile radius of Devils Lake to encourage use of the service. Vavra told the CAB that the Devils Lake Chamber of Com- merce had this month initiated a vigorous promotional effort to increase patronage, not only lo- cally but from the surrounding trade area. which should, in the near future, move the $4,706 loss into the black. The state commission's brief concluded, that to suspend serv- ice immediately at Devils Lal~ would serve no useful purpos and would not in the public in terest .
