How can Austin people help the Chamber of Commerce get more industry? One way is to help sell Austin by talking about the many good things this city has, Jack McGrew, Chamber president, told Lions here Thursday. He said an Austin businessman who came to this community — having chosen Austin for its many qualities — said he was surpris ed over some of the things he heard after he. got here. They made him reach the conclusion that many Austin people don't realize the many fine things they have. Industies Question Citizens McGrew pointed out that many industries, seeking a site for a new plant, quietly investigate communities, and listen to the estimates people have of their town. A community's reputation is acquired in large measure by what the residents say about it. There are many wonderful things Austin people can tell others about, said McGrew, who ticked off a few: Austin has an unusually high level of income, and a high degree of home ownership by occupants It has a symphony orchestra, unusual for a city of its size, and a fine men's chorus. In athletics, Austin teams this year won one championship after another. Truly a Church City Austin people have invested fab ulously large sums of money in church buildings, and it is truly a city of churches. It has an excellent school system, and a vocational school with facilities to train employes for many industries, and the Hormel Institute. There are many good industrial sites for future industry made available by the Hormel company. The city will be served by the most modern of interstate highways. It has an excellent municipal plant, plenty of water, something which many cities today lack, and a new sewage plant under construction. Austin has a new community hotel-motel coming. Slip Into Negative Side It has the Geo. A. Hormel & Co., one of the community's greatest assets. People are sometimes inclined to overlook these wonderful things, said McGrew, and to talk about the negative side. The speaker, Introduced by Henry Halverson, program chairman, outlined many activities on which Chamber of Commerce com mittees are currently working, all involved in the city's further progress. Ray Emmerich, Chamber of Commerce manager, was a guest. The Lions adopted a motion to set up their organization as a cor poration. Slips containing names of underprivileged children were distributed for purchase of Christmas gifts.
