The carvings are generally in abstract patterns of circles and spirals and other geometrical shapes. Wolsleben says sales volume at the Greeley shop has doubled since its opening four years ago. He describes the firm's men's apparel line as "updated traditional" and says the shop is oriented toward high school and college men as well as the business and professional trade.

By LYNN I1EINZE Tribune Staff Writer The coming together of various elements within' the agricultural community must be foremost in any discussion of progress in the economic sector. Weld County has been in the midst of this movement of unity in the past year. The first 1 such movement is the sale of the Great Western Sugar Company to the Great W e s t e r n P r o d u c e r s Cooperative. After more than a year of struggle, turmoil and frustration, the sale should be closed'in the next few weeks. The second important movement, although less publicized, was the gathering of many farm organizations into one bargaining force. This movement is the AG Council. This small group of men, each representing his own group, may well be laying the foundation for the future of agriculture in this country. While both of these movements represent essential unity in agriculture, each also represents a different approach to the problems facing the individual farmer. The sale of the sugar company to a cooperative represents increased returns to the growers through direct ownership. This direct ownership of the company which processes Ihe farmer's raw materials establishes each grower as an integrated operator. As in a large integrated corporation which controls evey aspect of an industry from refining raw materials to manufacturing the finished product, the co-op approach allows each grower Ihe same benefit of multiple profit structure. Thus the grower, through ownership of. shares in the co-op, expands his individual potential for profit. But no one farmer could have purchased the company on his own, the purchase had to be carried out through unity. The Ag Council, on the other hand, represents a completely different. approach. The Ag Council brings together the various garm groups to act as a political and economic bargaining organization. The individual farm groups munity here in the last. year. Growers of ensilage corn We have, therefore wil- recently asked the council to nessed two movements of un.ty negotiate new corn contracts 1 within the agricultural com for the current crop year. The purpose of the'action was to attempt to raise the levels of sugar company by a cooperative of growers, will be closing soon. And with it, co-op spokesmen say, will come in- payment to properly compensate for increased production costs. The council acted as negotiator for the growers and gained a 20 cent per hundredweight increase over the 1972 price average. The increase also represented about 10 cents creased profits to .the sugar producer. , , The second, Ihe development of the Ag Council, is jusl beginning. Members of · the Ag The first, the purchase of the Council look-for the group to take action in other areas during the year, 1 including water management, tax reform and land use. . arc essentially politically oriented. While each may have their own particular way of looking at a problem, they can unite through the Ag Council in order to project a stronger force. But during the past few months the council has also shown that it can act as a bargaining organization at- the marketplace as well. SHORTER HOSPITAL * WHEN CAR OVERHEATS STAYS IN BRITAIN LINDEN, N.J.

Aims College boosts life in Weld County Progress in education can be measured in many ways, and over the years has produced many innovations. Perhaps the most innovative of those is the founding of the community college. Greeley was the benefactor of that particular innovation, resulting in the founding of Aims Community College in 1967 with 950 students walking through its "open doors." Since that beginning with a lease on the Lincoln Building owned by Greeley School District Six, Aims now has two permanent facilities housing vocational and general studies. It is also in the process of beginning construction of a new Office Occupations and Technical Building on its 185- acre 20th Street campus on the west side of town. But the philosophy has not changed. Classes have been designed to offer something for everyone regardless of interest or ability. It also serves all age groups from high school students to adults who are interested in upgrading their education or just learning something new. The general studies department provides the latest methods and equipment for students to advance them to upper graduate study by awarding associate degrees. Classes cover all aspects of the academic world and allow the student the opportunity to advance to further education or seek employment following course completion. Programming is flexible so that students receive adequate training and education while experimenting w i t h other course work to gain a wide background. The vocational part of Aims offers the same qualities. Students receive the best training available in the state under experienced tradesmen and with the guidance of educational supervisors. The program is designed to allow students to enter at most anytime during the quarter and begin classes. High school, full- and part-time students all participate in the various vocational areas offered. All students have access to this any-time enrollment during the quarter as well as to health services and open counseling and job placement services. The Faculty Association and Student Government are active not only in the school setting but also in the community and state-wide. As one student summed it up, "It is a fun place to learn and a place where you can put that learning into practice."
