The dependency on bread underlines the weakness of the nutrition and economic levels, observers say. Abdou says bread provides some 70 per cent of the energy and protein needs of the average Egyptian and may provide as much as 93 per cent for the poorer persons who can afford 'little else. by some 2,500 gross square feet, providing considerable expansion in the shoe department, curtains and draperies, men's and women's fashions and in piece goods. The shoe department has actually been moved outside the existing facility and is now located at 817 9th St., just around the corner from the main store. . .

Penney slore in downtown Greeley for I he first lime. Now, 20 years later, she will be the guest of honor and official ribbon-cutler for Ihe newly remodeled and expanded ,1. C. Penney slore at 822-24 8th St., in downtown Greeley. Mrs. Crockett, a native of Greeley, officially relired from the company on April 1 of this year. About her retirement, she said, "I think Ihe Penney retirement plan is great! I've really enjoyed working for the company, but I'm also looking forward to my retirement.-" During her nearly 20 years of service to Ihe company, Mrs. Crockett has worked for six different managers. She started out under Don Lenehan. Then came Ted Stewart and Frank Duncan. They were followed by Dick Bentley, lister Reese, and finally by Ihe present manager, Mall Weigand. Mrs. Crocked .says, "All of (hem have been great." She slarled in Ihe Greeley slore working in Ihe domestic d e p a r l m e n l , and a f l e r 18. months, was moved into the infants department, where she remained for the next 10 years. She then became selling supervisor for the women's department on Ihe main floor, a position she held until her April 1 retirement. "I have nothing but praise for the Penney Co., which is the only Company I have worked for," said Mrs. Crockett. "Hike being called an associate instead of an employe. My Penney discount on my purchases has meant a lot. I have made many friends with the gals and guys I've worked with, and I'll miss all of them." The legal way By E. J. DEMSON, J.D. Copley News Service Interracial marriage is on the rise, and some couples worry about prosecution under state laws banning such marriages. Q. I have been told it is unlawful for a black person to marry a white in Texas. Is this true? If so, is the law enforced? A. While some states, including Texas, still have statutes on the books forbidding marriages between blacks and whites, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Loving vs. Virginia, ruled that these state laws are unconstitutional. Thus they cannot now be enforced (14th Amend. U.S. Constitution). , ^ J,C.

He found employment in a local dry goods store, but soon quit because he didn't like the altitude of Ihe other clerks. He soon found another sales job in another dry goods store, but quit after just a few days' because, he did not like the store's attilude toward the customers. Penney then went to Longmont and bought a butdher shop with the $300 savings he had gathered in Missouri. He hired a meatcutter and painted "J. C. Penney" on the window. The butcher shop was going well until the meatcutter told Penney that the conk at the local hotel was mad at him because he had not gotten his bottle of whiskey that week. Penney was told that if he didn't give the cook his whiskey that the cook would take away his hotel business. Penney promptly delivered the whiskey, but later after thinking it over, decided it was the wrong thing to do. He told the cook he would get no more whiskey from him and promptly lost the hotel trade. Shortly afterward, he lost the butcher shop and praclically all his savings. Penney then got a job at a dry goods and clothing store owned by T. M. Callahan in Longmont for the holiday season. He did so well during his temporary employment that Callahan asked him to go to Eyanston, Wyo., to help his partner run a store there. He also told Penney of his plan to open dry goods stores in different towns in Colorado and Wyoming. This was Ihe first time Penney had ever heard of chain stores and the idea fascinated him. Five years afler arriving in Colorado, Penney opened the first "Golden Rule" slore in Kemmerer, Wyo. Penney opened his first "Golden Rule" stores in April, 1912, in Colorado in Trinidad and Grand J u n c t i o n , and followed shortly with two more in Montrose and Aguilar. In 1927 J. B. Byars, who owned 116 chain- stores extending across the western and far- western slates, wrote a letter to Earl C. Sams, who was then president of the Penney Co. offering to sell his stores. The letter said. "I am concerned over my people. I have been w a t c h i n g the Penney Company's operations for quite a number of years. I like the way you treat your people and I feel with you they would be in good hands. If you are interested in buying my stores I am interested in selling them to you." Byars announced in February, 1928, to his managers that all his stores were being merged inlo Ihe J. C. Penney Co. On April 12, 1929, Ihe Byars store in Greeley, located at 822 8lh St., was merged into the Penney Co. The Byars sign was removed August 8, 1929, from the Greeley store and replaced by the J. C. Penney Co. sign. The store manager was 0. G. Edwards.
