GONTRAGT FOB CONSTRUCTION ON BIG SHOE FACTORY Plans and Specifications Now to Be Seen at Rust's Garage. Last Tuesday morning at the of fices of the Brown Shoe Company in St. Louis the contract was let for the construction of the branch factory buildings in Union City. The whols thing was done in a few minutes, so says our friend, Mr. Ben Howard.who was present at the time, and as soon as done, the construction superin tendent, Mr. Manahan, was called, and authorized to go to it. Imme diately Mr. Rust, president of the Union City Chamber of Commerce, was called and requested to set up a temporary employment agency for fifty men to begin work on the Brown Shoe Co. lot on North First street to day (Friday. If this isn't what you'd call moving up a bit, I don't know what it takes to speed up. Perhaps our readers would like to have an idea of the building plans, We haven't a diagram, but the main factory building i&.44& parallel and faceahe M. & 0. R. R., 250 feet in length by 45 feet in width. The stem, which is a part of the build ing, joins the main building on the vest wall and extends westward 80 feet, with a width of 60 feet. The main building and the stem comprise the factory buildings proper, which are to be three stories high with basement for heating, etc. Now, it may be generally under stood that this will form practically all the building and construction work. But not so by any means. Well over on the other side of the lot facing First street the Brown Shoe Co. will erect a clubhouse, ex pressly for the benefit of the factory employees. This building will be 70 feet in length and 45 feet in width. YOUR PAPER This is pay day. Have to ask you to pay up.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1922. constructed and provided with suit able furniture and equipment for a modern clubhouse. Forty-five by 250 foet of the grounds adjoining the stem will be reserved for such a time as additional factory buildings are needed. Now, then, there will be two plant warehouses to the north of the stem and an office building south of the stem 25 by 25 feet. Immediately north of the main -factory building will be the power house and over on the northwest corner of the lot will be a huge tower tank for fire protec tion. Plans are made for buildings to conform first to practical uses; at the same time there will be observed uni formity in style, and the building lot will be improved and beautified with landscape gardening. The Brown Shoe Co. factory will therefore not be an old drab building, facing you with a cold stare, but a group of buildings with grounds in shade and flowers, an ornament as well as huge industrial enterprise in Union City.
