and each will submit a bid on
the proposed structure within

the availability of labor in the
area and their ability to learn
their type of sewing operation.
They noted that the Tabor
City Merchants Association
had contracted to have this
building constructed at a spe
cified per foot per year ;tn:uia!

maining stumbling blo.k was
the determination as to whe
ther this figure could be ad
hered to.
The association has previ

is possible but certain addi
tions V» the building and its
interior win increase the coat
