The Survey just completed is made from Date from every Section the state and it a general Outlook for the coming year or. Grist said. About 73 per cent of the communities reporting indicated that prospects for the coming year Are better than they were for 1926, and the other 25 per cent believe that 1926 will be equally As Good a year As 1925. Quot there Wil be an even greater demand for skilled labor in 1926 than there was in 1925,�?T says or. Grist a resume of the Survey. About 65 per cent of the communities heard from say prospects Are for an increase in building activities and that conditions Are very favourable. Or. Grist predicts that Between $50,000,000 and $75,000,000 will be spent in this state next year on Public works this. He says. Being a very conservative estimate. Due to the drought conditions prevailing the past summer in the Western Section of the state Farmers Ara somewhat discouraged and the planting acreage probably will not be increased. There is a Strong tendency in that Section however. Says the commissioner toward a greater diversification of crops rather than an increase in in the trucking sections of the East on the other hand Farmers were not seriously affected by the drought and increased acreage of fruits vegetables and trucking crops is indicated by data compiled by the department of labor and printing. A a in making a Survey of the agricultural Industrial and general employment conditions for 1926 for the state of North Carolina.�?T reads or. Grist a statement issued tonight a we take in a vast territory that extends from the Bino Ridge mountains on the West through the Fertile Piedmont Section to the coastal Plains and the seashore on the East. This forces us to take under consideration Many industries and various forms of employment. This Curvey is made from data from every Section of the state and is a general Outlook for the coming year. A a the Progress of our state depends entirely upon the welfare of people and of course this depends to a great extent on employment of All classes of workers.

Phone 2131 Mechanicsville j Carf for the people but the pros pets for the Industrial Prosperity for the coming year seem even greater than at any time in the past. Statistics from the different i sections show that Many of the Industrial plants will be enlarged and the ways and Means of production greatly increased. There will be a greater demand for skilled labor in 1926 than there has been in 192 5. About 75 per cent of the communities report that the prospects for the coming year Are better than they have been for 1925 and the remaining 25 per cent report that the Industrial development will continue about the same during 1926 As in 1925. A the prospects for the building construction for 1926 Are also very encouraging and we find that about 05 per cent of the reports show that an increase in building is anticipated and that conditions Are very favourable. In fact it seems that All building craftsmen in the majority of the communities will have steady employment during the coming year. A the building will be More Active in the Central and Western sections of the state and will consist mostly in enlarging of plants building of Home business houses hotels and schools. One City vol one anticipates a building program that will Cost seven millions of dollars while another estimates that its program will total around six millions. A was usual North Carolina will keep up ifs Progress in Public works and in estimating that Between fifty and seventy five millions of dollars will be spent on Public works we feel that this is a very conservative estimate. This work will consist in the building of highways Bridges paving of streets increasing and enlarging water and sewer systems enlarging powder and Light plants and in improving the schools. A certain portion will of course be put in playgrounds and Parks. A North Carolina has always been recognized As one of the leading agricultural states. On account of Tho unprecedented drought that prevailed Over All the Western and Central portions of the state during the summer of 1925, the Farmers did not have an especially Good season and having become a bit disheartened the Prospect for Tho increasing of the planting acreage is not very Good in these sections. Through these sections there is a great acreage that could be cultivated Esi scially in raising food products. However there is a Strong tendency for a greater diversification of crops rather than an increase in acreage. A the Eastern Section of North Carolina is the leading trucking Section of the state and As this Section was not seriously affected by the drought the Farmers show a More optimistic attitude and our data shows that during the year 1926 there will be an increase in the acreage of All fruits vegetables and trucking crops especially is this True of the Strawberry bean celery and Cucumber acreage. Irish potatoes will also come in this the links referee Quin a stroke Competition a sliced a shot which he thought went out of Bounds near the Green.
