VOLUME 20. MONETT, MISSOURI FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1919. NUMBER 52. MONETT CAN HAVE OVERALL FACTORY. Oberman Concern Will Start Branch Business Here for Half the Cost of a Building. Monett business men are working hard to secure for Monett an overall factory. A representative of the Oberman Overall Company was in town this week and made an excellent proposition. The company will estab lish a branch factory here if Monett will furnish half the cost of a building, which , would be about $7,000. They agree that this amount shall not be turned' over to them until they have paid out $100,000 in salaries. They will employ all the girls that can be furnished them and say they could use 500 girls if they could get them. They will pay $1.00 a day to begin ners, and girls can earn $2.50 a day after they become experienced. The Oberman people are reliable, j fhey have twelve factories in dif ferent places in the United States, They have one at Springfield and one at Aurora. Aurora tne citizens were so pleased with the proposition tha $6,500 was subscribed in half a day. Since the factory has been estab lished at Springfield many families have moved to that town to put then girls in the factory. One family liv ing down in the hills making a bare living went to Springfield and the members of the family are getting $90 a week at the factory. The employment of several hundred girls at good wages means a great deal to the prosperity of the town. It means new families and more money in circulation. Monett business men are subscrib ing liberally to the proposition but they ' cannot put it through without the co-operation of all the citizens. There are men of means in tdVn, who are not in business who should help out this enterprise for it means much to the growth of the town.
