All well and good, but having made tills decision, be sure these plans are well-carried out by selecting a garment suitable for Immediate wear, yet not too heavy and wintry for service during the early spring days not far distant. Since plaids nre forespoken us be ing retained In the list of spring fab ric favorites, why not choose a hnud some woolen modeled somewhat aft er the style of either of the two coats in tills picture?

Industrial and Employment Prospectus This Report Is Made of In formation Received from Over One Hundred Representative Business Men, Organizations and Institutions in Colorado. General—A healthy condition is in dicated In practically all lines of in dustry and employment In Colorado during 1927. Major lines of industrial activity, which will likely show a con tinued upward trend, indicated in ag riculture, metal mining, manufactur ing. oil, railroads and the travel In dustry. A few lines which will likely show lesser activity, Indicated in building, municipal improvement con struction and highway construction. While demands for labor, both skilled and unskilled, will be increased (ex cept for building and construction workers which will bo less), the resi dent supply of workers plus the antic ipated influx of migratory workers, will most likely be adequate for all lines, except for about 7,000 hand workers for the sugar beet fields, a moderate number of unskilled railroad track workers, a moderate number of skilled metal miners and skilled me chanics for miscellaneous lines of manufacturing. Agriculture—Excellent crop returns In 1926 of grains (except corn), sugar beets, fruit and vegetables in practi cally all agricultural sections of state, is having a tendency to stimulate ag riculture, and a substantial increase (approximately 10 per cent), is indi cated in the planting avreage in the irrigated districts in 1927 over 1926, principally to be noted in sugar beets, wheat, barley, potatoes, celery, alfal fa, lettuce, beans and peas. In the non irrigatod districts, natural moisture conditions in spring will determine to a great extent the acreage planted to corn and other diversified dry-farming crops. The outstanding crop—sugar beets —which showed a harvested acreage of 136.000 acres in 1925 and 219,000 acres in 1926, will probably show the greater increase In planted acreage. While fall wheat planting is less, spring wheat planting indicat ed to he enough to make at least a normal acreage. The celery crop will likely be doubled in the Arkansas val ley district. Live Stock—The live stock situa tion for 1927 is very encouraging. The gradual Increase in feed products— chiefly ulfalfa, sugar beet pulp and tops, and higher prices for cattle, sheep and hogs, is causing agricultur alists and stockmen to gradually in crease their herds. However, at this time, extraordinary shipments of feed er cattle and of sheep to market, has depleted the ranges and feed-lots to considerable extent, particularly of sheep. The dairying industry will con tinue to gradually expand during 1927. Metal Mining—Metal mining which was more active in 1926 than for twen ty-five years, indicated to show con tinued revival during 1927. Activity Indicated general in practically all inetal mining districts of state, partic ularly noted and to be noted In the counties of Teller, Lake, Clear Creek, San Juan, Dolores, Summit, Gilpin, Mineral, Pitkin Saguache, Boulder, Custer, Hinsdale, Chaffee, La. Plata, Ouray, Rio Grande, San Miguel, Eagle, Grand and Montezuma. Several addi tional ore mills are indicated to be constructed during 1927. Coal Mining—Coal mining opera tions Indicated to show normal activ ity during 1927, with possibly a slight Increase In output and forces. Coal mining will bo particularly active in the Trinidad, Walsenburg, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Louisville, Lafay ette and Routt county districts. Oil—The oil industry, which has come Into prominence only during the past three years and which showed material expansion during 1926, when several new wells were brought In, In dicated to show further expansion dur ing 1927, especially noted In the Fort Collins and Craig districts. Consider able prospecting will likely be noted in the Moffat, Fort Collins, Florence, Boulder, Trinidad and Delta districts during the next several months. Ca pacity operations will most likely be noted by the new 1,000-barrel oil re finery at Craig. Oil Shale —There is possibility of major expansions and developments during 1927 of the oil shale industry In the Deßeque oil shale district. The building of retorts and processes with which to treat the shale In preparing It for commercial use, will no doubt cause demand for many skilled and semi-skilled workers. Manufacturing—Manufacturing pos sibilities for 1927 are encouraging. A gradually Increasing population In the Rocky Mountain region is causing con tinued und increased demand for manufactured products, with resultant Increased activity in many lines of Pueblo. —A total appropriation of $104,660.34 Is needed to eliminate pres ent debts, pay up old bills, and pro vide for the establishment of an ade quate grandstand or studium and a new horse pavilion for the State Fair grounds at Pueblo. Passage of the mileage bill, which would Increase the present one one-hundredth mill tax ap propriation to three one-hundredths und bring in instead of $14,000, ap proximately $42,000, wus ulso urged. Pinal county, Ariz., received $16,- 160.86 for the second quarterly appor tionment of the state school funds. THE COSTILLA OOPNTY DEMOCRAT rsrsssKciq ber* l goods, V dry*“product ß and nC’h Lnoou" articles.; 1927 Indicated to be a record year in the manufacture of steel and iron products, principally steel rails, tie plates, car wheels, min mg machinery, castings and structur. al steel. A large steel plant at Pueblo has recently received several huge or ders for steel products, one order alone amounting to $6.°00.000 or steel rails, which work will result in approximate ly two months more employment In the steel rail department of this plant during 1927 over 1926. Mining ma chinery Plants continue gradually creasing output and forces. Plants manufacturing rubber goods, such as automobile tires, *wden hose, fan belts and miscellaneous rubber pro ducts, will Increase production and forces during 1927. One of these plants at Denver, which employed an approximate average of 1,000 workers during 1926, will most likely increase forces to an average of approximately 1400 during 1927. Plums manufac turing food products-crackers, cakes, etc —indicated to further expand op orations, with resultant moderate in crease in forces. The gradually In creasing receipts of live stock indicat ed to cause a corresponding increase in operations and forces at the large meat packing plants 'at Denver and Pueblo. The eighteen heet sugar man ufacturing plants In state which ran a period of thirty days in 1926 over their seasonal runs of 1925, indicated to operate at least as long a period in 1927 as during 1926, or approximately three and one-half months, from Oct. 1 to Jan. 15. The beet sugar factories are located as follows: Longmont Loveland, Fort Collins. Windsor Eaton, Greeley, Fort Lupton, Brigh ton Fort Morgan, Brush, Sterling Johnstown, Ovid, Kockv Ford. Swink Sugar City, Grand Junction and Delta The molahses beet sugar refinery a Johnstown, the largest in the work and the only one of its kind in tin United States, which commenced op erations during the fall of 1926, indi cated to run the entire year, affordini I employment to approximately 20 skilled workers. Building and General Construction —Building in general, indicated to be approximately 15 per cent less in 1927 than in 1926. However, construction in commercial and industrial lines will likely be about normal. Lesser construction will be more evidenced in residence building. Major construc tion indicated for 1927. includes a 700,000 program by !he Telephone company, which Includes a new tele phone building at Denver, $632,000 in station equipment, central office equipment, $357,000; exchange lines, $892,000, and toll lines, $509,000. A large public service company’s 1927 program includes new construction in connection with en largements and extensions of electric lines and power stations. The Chim ney Rock dam in the mountains above Lyons, indicated to be under construc tion during 1927. Other construction work will be under way In practically all of the metal mining districts in state, including several ore mills, met al mine timbering, etc. Construction work on the six-mile Moffat Railroad tunnel, sixty-five miles northwest of Denver, which has been under con struction for the past three years, in dicated to be finished within four or five months: the Pioneer tunnel, par alleling the railroad tunnel, indicated to be finished during the early part of 1927. Building labor of all classes In dicated to be more than ample to fill demands throughout the year. Municipal Improvements — The vol ume of municipal improvement con struction will probably not be quite so extensive in 1927 as during 1926. Some of the cities and towns will in crease their public improvement pro grams, while others will decrease their programs. Highway Construction —Present in dications are that a possible insuffi ciency of funds will cause curtail ment of the 1927 highway construc tion program to a considerable extent. Railroads— An increase in both freight and passenger railroad traffic, is Indicated during 1927, which in crease will be evidenced as a result of an indicated moderate Increase in train travel and a heavy Increase in agricultural, manufacturing and met al tonnage. Nearly every railroad op erating in Colorado will have large construction programs in 1927, includ ing considerable rebuilding, improv ing and extension work, with result ant demand for an increased number of railroad workers. Several thou sand additional laborers will be need ed for track work, and a moderate number of skilled Iwiler-makers, ma chinists, welders, etc., will be,required in the mechanical departments. Travel Industry—The 1926 travel in dustry, which showed about a 10 per cent increaso in automobile and a 6 per cent decrease In rail travel com pared to 1925, indicated to show a substantial Increaso in both automo bile and train travel in 1927. Colorado Springs—Colorado Springe has been selected as the meeting place for the next annual convention of the State Association of Letter Carriers The convention will be held on May 25, 26, 27 and 28. Delegates will be se lected to the national association meeting at El Paso, Tex., next Sep tember. A large attendance Is ex pectod at the Colorado Springs meet ing.
