EDWARDS Mr. Edwards, widely known Hope contractor, built the new Star Building. Other local structures to his credit are: The Hempst'ead county court house: First Baptist and First Presbyterian churches; the W. Shanhouse Sons, Inc., factory building; and the Stephens Grocer Co. building. BROS THE PICTURE STORY (from top to bottom) — Feb. 25, 1955 — The old Star building, its front offices vacated, the machinery remaln- . in place — on the eve of construction, which began Feb. 28. March 16 — Steel trusses go in, to support concrete deck and new roof, building's ceiling is 10 feet high, against 15 feet for the old one. April 3 — New building rises — and half of the old roof has already been torn away. June 18 — Today Dirty Dishes, So Hubby Beats Her CHICAGO M— A young mother testified in Circuit Court yesterday that her husband beat her twice because she left dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. Mrs. June T. Dunne, 26, testify' .ing in her divorce suit, said she 'didn't have timeto do the dishes— she had to go to her office job. She said her husband Thomas 35, a truck driver, had insisted that she work as a secretary. "This seems a trivial thing lo break up a marriage and cause •3 child to grow up in a fatherless home," remarked Judge Charles S, Dougherty as he granted Mrs. Dunne a divorce. The Dunnes have a 5-year- old daughter, whose custody was awarded lo Mrs. Dunne. Dunne did not contest the divorce suit. Business Is Humming of Summer Stars Bv SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (fft— Business ncars the official start of summer humming a prosperity tune. Industrial output is a an all- time high, says the Federal Re serve Board, after adjusting its index to the weather. Retail sales are running 8 per cent higher than a year ago. Construction activity—also after being adjusted for seasional influences—is at a record high and cne eighth larger than last year. The coming of hot weather is pushing electric power output to an all-time high. It was within a whisker of it last week. The Edi son Electric Institute says the use of electrcity for air conditioning is vising and a new record is probably just days away. Refineries are turning out 20 million barrels of gasoline a week nojv. But American motorists are using even more than that. American families eating well. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that meat production is running 3 per cent above a year ago, with beef even higher. Coffee drinking is on the increase, according to the Pan- American Coffee Bureau, It says a jeccnt nationwide survey hows the average American of coffee- drinking age downs 2.67 cups a day. Last year it was 2.60 cups. Rising incomes are given thd credit for all the buying and consuming. Average weekly factory earnings have touched a new high of $76.11. about $5 ahead of a year ago. Employment has been rising and unemployment dropping. Summer's onslaught may change some of this pleasant picture. While Americans will use more gasoline and electricity for travel and comfort, they'll stop producing as much in the factories during vacation days. Indistrial output is expected to slaough off a little in May and June from its April peak. Star Our Best Wishes to you in your new home. This is another modern new building for Hope.
