WHAT 1929 MAY BRING It being a natural characleriSc of the mind to be forward- ,ook if more than the most casual reference to Chnstmas . now taboo. We give ourselves accordingly to ant.c.pation of thTNew Year and what it may bring. If any retrospect,!* i done at all it is with this relation in mind. What will 1929 bring to Hamilton? First, there is the new municipal lighting plant, promised to be in operation, soon alter January 1. What a splendid j u s t i f i c a t i o n of the who fought for the first one back in 1891-94 it is! It is a mammoth thing compared with what Hamilton inaugurated so pridefully September 19, 1895. February 'is promised to bring the formal opening of the new Fort Hamilton Hospital to which time man.y have been hopefully looking. The number of those who have worked for tliis is such as to make it in thc broadest sense a Community project As its splendid building stands on Eaton road, facing and pverlosking Highland park, it truly is a monument to the struggles and the sacrifices to all those who have toiled and labored for it. In the building season to come, several hundred new homes will rise and give shelter to families. Hamilton's educational plant is to be increased by four new buildings within the Three now are under construction and will be in readiness for the opening of the school year in September, 1929. The Junior High school is to be completed later in the year and is to occupied after the 1929 Christmas holidays. i In the civic life of Hamilton, 1929 is to be a crucial year. At the municipal election in November the electors will be asked to register their approval or disapproval of the first two years of administration under our Charter system- They will pass upon, not promises, but the record of what has been Of vital interest to Hamilton is to be the speeding up operations at the Hamilton plant of the Ford Motor Co. the year it is expected the wheel output will be brought 40,000 or more per year. This is an assurance, not only of *teady employment for those now on the payroll, but the addition of many other workers, also. The e f f e c t of the Ot the immense payroll of the Ford plant throughout the business and other interests of Hamilton cannot be otherwise than far-reaching. I The opening of the year finds the Niles Tool Works and the Hooven-Owens-Kentschler Co. in a new relation through common control by the General Machinery Corporation. The Niles, it is understood, is to concentrate its manufacturing largely if not exclusively on railroad machine tools, presses ·ther related equipment. The company's equipment with that | of the Hooven-Owens-Rentschler Co., includes machinery of the finest and largest of its kind in the x cuuntry for the making of presses, much in demand in the automobile industry and in other lines adopting mass production methods an.d processes. The executives of the two safe companies, Mosler's and Herry-Hall-Marvin, anticipate a year of sales expansion.- So also the textile industry, the woolen mills, thc paper industry represented by the Beckett Paper Co. and the Champion Paper COj, are this early beginning to respond to the stimulus new year is bringing. Increased opportunities for employment here in t u r n bring new citizens with their families. For these there must homes and residences. The builders and the carpenters and lumber and material supply interests will have their part to So throughout Hamilton is to be found a great feeling optimism. To the farthermost parts will stimulation bring increased e f f o r t and zeal. In bringing this brief outlook writer has been conscious that it is not given to the eyes to pierce far into the f u t u r e , nor to read clearly that seen. But a few of those things most nearly at hand have indicated.
