After little more than the holding company includes nine other banks, in the Metro area, Glenwood Springs, Sterling and the new Greeley bank. Located on a one-acre site at the new Greeley Mall, the Weld Colorado Bank has a staff of seven'. It will expand that to 10 when it moves into the new building. With his bank bringing the total of Greeley banks to 7, Menefee admits the city has a large number of banks for Colorado. But he says this number would not be unusual elsewhere in the nation. "And this is one of the richest counties in the state," Menefee adds. He points out deposits in Greeley Banks have tripled in the past 10 years. In 1960, Greeley bank deposits totaled $48.2 million. By 1971 they had increased to $136.2 million, and last year deposits totaled $168.1 million. Menefee says his bank is operating under a broad-based loan policy, although most thus far have been commercial and consumer-installment loans. Directors of the new bank include three Greeley men, besides Menefee. They are: Edgar F. Bartels, Joseph L. Haefeli and Robert A. Ruyle. Harold Kountze Jr., secretary of Colorado National Bankshares, Inc., is also a director. Menefee, a native of Powell, Wyo., came to the bank as president after 13 years with Colorado National Bank.

Now he is in Cannes at film festival time and an interviewer asks him why he is there. Craig's reply: "I am in Cannes to save my life." It is on this dramatic thesis that Irwin Shaw builds his latest novel, and the story of the life and times of Craig is a fascinating one. Skillfully interpolating flashbacks into the smooth-flowing narrative of Craig's slay in Cannes, Shaw carefully paints a picture of a man's life and when lie lias finished his portrait of Craig it is complete and full and very much alive.

Despite Spurred by a freelance writer named Gail McKinnon, a tough little number who comes on a bit too strong at first but grows more likeable as the book progresses, Craig digs into his past -- into the incidents that made his life peculiarly his.

The man shows him a play- script which Craig thinks has possibilities and after his discharge he digs up (lie money and all the other things needed to stage his friend's play. The play is a success. Craig is launched on a career that is to absorb his life. And then things start to fall apart. Not all at once, of course, but bit by bit, the way water works on stone. His friendship with the playwright, Edward Brenner, goes sour. His mnrringe curdles. And after it's all over it's up to Craig to put things together again.
