By NOLAN HOWELL City's largest employer from 1906 to 1955 was the Garden OMy Company's sugar factory wditsh 350 .to 400 factory workers during a seasonal "campaign." A campaign began with the digging of beets after the fkst heavy freezie in the fal, usually about miid-Ootober, and lasting until 'about Chr-iisitmas time when the last beets -had been processed into sugar. Occasionally, a campaign would stretch into the new year as was the case with the first campaign in 1906. The new fac tory opened on Nov. 15, 1906, completing its first campaign on Feb. 18, 1907. The plante 600 ton capacity was exceeded during its first liay of operation. A total of 66,031 tons of beets were pro- cessieid duriinig that campaign, an average daily intake by the factory of 629 tons With a peak of 900 tons reached during December. Early years of the factory's campaigns meant seasonal jobs tor 200 to 300 men working a 12 hour shift. When the 1938 Wages amid Hours Act wienit into effect, tihe company increased its employment to between 350 and 400 pensoinis. Normal yean* round employment numbered 60 persons. That included hieOp in the office, factory and land operations. Permanent factory em- ployes spent the remainder od the year breaking down, cleaning anid repairing the mill's machinery. ord during this factory's 50 campaigns? occurred durinig the 1940 season when. 123,215 tons of sugar beets were processed. Previous a! time record had been in 1933 when 100,306 tons of beets weiie processed. Those were 'the only two campaigns among tine 50 that production exceeded 100,000 tons of beets processed. ; ; . Poorest production years wene Ohe 1919 and 1911 campaigns. The\1919 campaign processed a measly 7,655 tons and lasted only 19 days from start to finish. The 1911 campaign ran 32 days with 21,020 tons of beets processed. By contest, the 1933 campaign lasted 108 days, concluding on Jan, 2, 1934. The successful 1940 campaign was also the longest in the factory's history, lasting 144 days, condud ing on Feib. 9, 1941. All time beat production rec-1 Last campaign of the factory was in 1955, the year the fac- ory was closed and sold. That campaign lasted 72 days, enid- ng'on Dec. 16 wifeh a production if 83,877 tons, the best produc- lion in eight years. Sugar content lin'that first campaign of 1906 wais 12.1 per cent. Fifflty yeans later, the final campaign produced an average sugar content of 13.90 per cent. The 1906 sugar content was also the lowest in the 50 year production span. Highest sugar content was recorded duiing the campaigns of 1924 and 1937. Average figure for the 53,499 tons of beets processed during 1924 was 16.43 per cent. The 51,494 tons processed in 1937 averaged 16.42 per cent sugar content. Sugar content for the record produc tion year of 1940 was 13.33 pei cent and for 1933, 15.12 per cent. Sugar produced by the factory was marketed primarily n the Great Plate region, •lowever, during World War II, he plant's production was shipped to markets on both coasts. Outdated and inefficient operations, resulting in high over- nead and requiring large capital expenditures to correct, led :io the closing of the factory on Nov. 14, 1955. On that date, The Garden City Company sold the factory and its machinery to Merrill Shoup, president of Holly Sugar Co., for an undisclosed sum. Sfhoup was the son of Oliver Shoup, one of the original founders of The Garden City Company. Four years later, on Oct. 17, 1959, the sugar company properties at Gar-den City, Swank and Holly, Colo., were sold to Martin Smith, California restaurateur, anid T. C. McMillan president of McMillan Mortgage Co., Los Angeles, Calif. This combined value of the once hree identical sugar factories was estimated at the time to be n excess of one million dollars. Largest of the three factories was the Swink, Colo., mill which was operating at a 2.400 daily capacity whsn it closed in 1959. The 5-story factories were dismantled with the sheds and warehouses aM converted to rental warehouses. The new owners sold more than 12,000 tons of scrap steel and iron from the Swink and Garden City plaints. They also had more than 7-milion used bricks to seU from the dismantling of the 5-story Garden City factory. Sale of the factory in 1955 led to a gradual re-orgamMng of the broad interests of The Garden Oifcy Company, eventually becoming a land management concern serviced by its own raSlroad. lb 16.50;17.50; 34 280-310 lb GARDEN CITY LIVESTOCK Total receipts: 1,183 cattle; 584 hogs "'^ Friday's sale on steer and bull calves fully $1 lower with not many heifer calves to test the market. v Yearling and feeder, stews and heifers in light >suipply and fully 50c to $1 higher, with very good activity.
