The store occupies 4800 square feet of floor space and is situated on a corner far removed from the congested shopping district and is provided with ample drive-in parking space, and employees are ever ready to assist customers in the selection of merchandise and in the loading of their automobiles. And no hot-weather discomfort for shoppers bceause air-conditioning maintains an even, comfortable temperature throughout the day. "The Safeway organization features nationally advertised products," Mr. Shaw pointed out, "and consistent with Safeway policy, this merchandise is offered at the lowest possible prices. "I think that the arrangement of this store, together with the many facilities offered the customer for his or her comfort makes it one of the most delightful food stores in the southwest. Of course. Safeway policy of offering the lowest prices also prevails, and we do all in our power to live up to our slogan: 'distribution without waste.' " To the left of the checking counter, and at the right of the front of the store, is the handsome meat market. Roger Slattery, manager of the meat department, is especially proud of his modern display equipment, and well he may be! For his store was selected by the El Paso Safeway organization for an ex-, hibit of the Grand Champion calf and lamb purchased at the Southwestern Live Stock Show this spring. Slattery points with pride to Safe-way's participation in that event and its tremendous purchases of prize-winning entries as an indication, not only of every Safeway of- Beautiful Store Is Pride To Local Safeway Organization i . m" 7 ii r-i - ' . 1 T ' - Jn - "fMt' -v - - Located at the corner of Montana and Laural Streets and occupying 4S00 square feet of floor space this Safeway Store is one of the most beautiful and finest appointed grocery stores in the southwest.

Isaak Walton Fans Like Don Thompson Izaak Walton sought peace in living, and most of his outdoor hours' were spent at angling. He went about the sport enthusiastically, and this pleasure, which also won him a certain immortality, served throughout his life to allay most of the miseries he suffered when he wasn't on the bank of some stream. He fished with skiHful ease and approached each problem in a simple way, whether his chore at hand was the construction of a hair line for casting, or a decision on the relative merits of the tag-tail, or twachel (all worms). "To a person not interested in fishing." said Don Thompson, of Don Thompson, Inc., dealers in fishing equipment, "the sporti with all its attending tackle, equipment, boat, and time needed, may seem a trifle much ado, but it will seem so only to those who have never tried it. For your true fisherman will angle and angle again. If you happen to be the sort of person whose motto is: "I envy not him that eats better meat than I do, nor him that is richer, or that wears better clothes than I do: I envy nobody but him, and him only, that catches more fish than I do," then the ?lace for you to hie to is Don Thompson, Inc., because there will be found all the equipment dear to the angler's heart.

The nursery is located on Alameda Auenue next to Evergreen Cemetery. Chinese Elm Thrives Here Evergreen Nursery Sells Large Variety Of Trees. El Paso's penchant for the Chinese Elm as an ornamental or shade tree is largely due to the efforts of T. E. Hogge of Evergreen Nursery. Demand for this beautiful and serviceable tree was retarded in the past because of the limited time during which it could be planted. Until recently Chinese Elms could be planted only from October to March. Recognizing the possibilities of fered in this species of tree, if the planting season could be extended, Hogge devoted considerable time and effort to the problem. In 1934 he perfected a plan whereby the tree could be planted the year-around. By "balling" the tree it can be planted anywhere in the El Paso territory with every assurance of success. Hogge reports that considerable foundation planting is being done now. This planting includes lawns, shrubbery, berry bushes, trees (ornamental and shade). Evergreen Nursery offers a complete service on all this type of work, The service includes free estimates on the complete work from the excavating and filling in of new earth to the furnishing of every imaginable species of plant.
