TRIBUNE B-S Ten floors of high-rise hotel will begin going up this spring as construction starts in down- tpwn Greeley on the JZ.2 million .Holiday inn. ;.'»The structure, to be built on · tth Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, will create a tandem of high-rise towers in adjacent blocks downtown. It will be located a block north of fhe under-construction Greeley National Bank high-rise complex. According to Gary Aenchbacher of Ihe project's ,. Glenwood Springs development A , ri ' s firm, Mark II Properties, the ten-story complex (plus an eleventh level for mechanical apparatus) will contain too rooms, three banquet- convention halls each holding 350 to 400 persons, a reslaurant and a lounge featuring live entertainment. Holiday Inn construction is slated to begin late this month or early in May, Aenchbacher said. The facility will, open March 1974. Aenchbacher eslimated the hotel complex would gross $1 million in its first year. It will provide about 50 new jobs, with all but the manager being hired from the Greeley-area labor force. Eslimated first-year payroll is $500,000. Aenchbacher indicated the Holiday Inn management will be looking to a l l r a c t conventions to Greeley. But he added that trade is expected to center on commercial travelers, persons attending other activities in the area, such as at the University of Northern Colorado, as well as Grceley's share of tourists.

Aenchbacher pointed to the nearness of downtown shopping, banks and professional services to the site, as well as the relative nearness of the UNC campus. As this edition went to press, Aenchbacher was seeking construction-firm bidders on the project. Construction contract terms are to be developed on a negotiated basis. Aenchbacher has been involved in the development of the Holiday Inn at Glenwood Springs. He said he is pursuing two other Holiday Inn projects in the region, one of them in Colorado. students with other financial- aid services, and became the Office of Financial Aid. According to Harry Collins, financial aids director, seven new programs have been after graduation. The Bank of Ireland was established in Dublin in 1783. HIGH-RISE HOTEL PLAN -- This is the architect's proposal for the 10-floor, $2.2 million Holiday Inn high-rise hotel to be built on 6th Street between 8th and 9th avenues. Work is to start within a month. The 100-room hotel and convention complex -- including three banquet and convention centers -is slated to open next March.

"Now they musl shop in Ihe evenings or on weekends." She pointed lo changes in banking hours thai have been extended earlier and laler in the day. She said Ihe slores in Oreeley have been slow lo change but are changing now. "You have to make il con- venienl for Ihe customer," she said. Hesleds has been open Sundays for lliree or four years now and is open every nighl except Saturday. Munoz said, though, "II doesn't do any good for one store (in a center) lo be open Sunday wilh the others closed. You have to think in lerms of the center as a whole." Munoz agreed that a change is taking place. He said Hesteds does more business on Sunday than some days ' during Ihe week. "That's Ihe trend," he said. Small said attiludes were changing with grocery shoppers also. ,IIe said one reason people previously did not shop for groceries on Sundays was because they felt the selection would nol be as good. Bui now the slores are changing their orientation. For King's, Saturday is Ihe big sales day in Ihe week with Sunday usually the third biggest. Small said Woolco has two types of customer -- Ihe type that shops on Saturday and Ihe type thai shops on Sunday. Slores are now promoling Ihemselves as parl of a center more lhan in Ihe past. The merchant associations plan special events like Ihe Easter Egg Hunt at the Hillside Mall. Miss Van Deuyn said she tries lo gel Ihe merchants at Hillside to advertise togelher as much as possible. "A small slore ad may be losl in Ihe paper," she said. "Bui a full page ad, wilh all Ihe stores having space and a distinctive border will stand out more." She also said lhal shoppers oven look for such area ads to check sales and specials. Competition is the key word for the future. The Greeley Mall may provide competilion or it mny spur business all over (ireelcy.

Financial aid at UNC is available from the state and the federal government. Collins said state financial aid has improved in the past five years, noting that tuition waivers were the only stale form of financial aid. Federal aid programs have changed from a scholastic and achievement basis to a basis of need as shown by low family income. Colorado gives its aid on the basis of 'documented need,' which does not concern income, but Ihe family's ability to support a student through his education. Collins said that 20 years ago, almost all of the financial aid was given for outstanding achievement. In both state and federal programs Collins feels there should be more aid given to Ihe outstanding student, -a type of Growth is reflected in any number of ways. Housing starts is a common indicator. Property tax valuation is another. One that many persons forget Ihounh is truckins tonnage. As the Weld Coimly area has grown, the trucking induslry has grown wilh it. Even the economic pattern of growth in the county is reflected in the trucking industry. For example, Shupe Brothers, which manages the Monfort truck fleet and has a line of agricultural carriers, has grown by about 20 per cent in the last year, according lo Joel Rothman, the company's local office manager. Presently, the Monfort fleet totals 50 trucks and has grown as the Monfort operations have grown. Shupe Brothers itself presently has about thirty trucks on the road in the Greeley area and a payroll of 60 employes. The company's operations are presently spread over twelve stales wilh a total of 90 trucks and 135 employes, He attributes the growth of the company to Ihe general growth paltern of Ihe western U.S. and the growth of agricultural industry in this area. In the fall, Rothman said, the company plans to add more trucks and employes. Last year, the company added 18 trucks and 25 lo 30 employes. Clifford M. Burbridge Truck, Inc., said he, loo, saw a general strengthening of Ihe trucking industry in Northern Colorado. Heattribuled the growth partly to new residents brought into the area by the Fort St. Vrain nuclear power plant at Platteville and Windsor's Kodak plant. The company, which serves communities on Highway 85 between Denver and Eaton, presently has nine trucks on the road and nine employes, Burbridge said. While no expansion either in the fleet or in the payroll is being contemplated, Burbridge HIGHER LEARNING MORGANTOWN.W.Va.

No increase in Ihe number of trucks or employes has occurred recently, Miller said, and, in fact, the company laid off 10 or 15 men a year ago.
