THE CORSICANA 'SEMI-WEEKLY UGflT, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1988. EMBARGO ON CATTLE CAUSING ALARM TO DUYERS AND SELLERS PURCHASERS MAY LOSE FORFEIT MONEY PAID ON ANIMALS IN MEXICO EL PASO, Dec. 28.—W)—Both ••buyers and sellers of cattle viewed with alarm today the Mexican /embargo announced the first of ttho week. I United States buyers operating here wondered if they were going to lose approximately $15,000 forfeit money on between 15,000 and 20,000 head of cattle bought before Mexico put the embargo in force. At the-samo time Mexican ranch • owners who had sold cattle for delivery in the United States worried over chances of being able to make good their contracts. Border customs brokers said a number of cattlemen were in Mexico City attempting to obtain concessions under the embargo which would permit them to make deliveries to American buyers. Cattlemen said their chief complaint was the auddeness with whloh the embargo was put into OUT WEST WITH THE HARDYS effect. Customs brokers said officials in Mexico City probably would not return to their posts until after January 1, as they arc now enjoying the Christmas holidays, and will refuse to consider exportation permits until that time. At Amarillo, officials of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers' Association expressed fear American livestock interests may be expropriated as were foreign oil interests in Mexico. It was pointed out that many Texans operate ranches in Mexico, usually Keeping their cows there and shipping the calves to the United States for finishing. Cattlemen said the provision in the embargo that cattle cannot be shipped across the Rio Grande without permission from the department of economics may work against Americans. They said they feared permission might bn denied Americans and given Mexican operators, therefore flooding the American market with Mexican cattle. 9 ~~ r -.

KRUEGER Associated Press Staff Writer. Maturing Texas eased its growing pains in 1938 with a building program unmatched since the boom years of a decade ago. Sixteen key cities of the state granted builders permission to spend upwards of $70,000,000 for construction most of it on places for TeXans to work in and to live In. Industrial Houston, accounting for a third of the total, continued at an everf faster clip the building boom which put her at the head of the list last year. Out of the sixteen cities only three reported a lesser volume of building this year than last and In most cases construction definitely was greater. Notable was the growth of Austin, capital city which ranks seventh in population but was third largest spender for construction, pouring out more than $6,000,000 for that purpose. Significant of the town's growth was the fact most of that recording-breaking sum went for building houses. Dwelling permits went to a new high of about 1,200. Observers believe the population is increasing steadily about 4,000 a year. The city Is growing because state government is expanding, the University of Texas grows bigger every year and because two dams costing $13,500,000 are going up nearby. How Cities Ranked. After Houston with its $24,500,000, the rankings are Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Lubbock, Amarillo, Corpus Christl, Galveston, Port Arthur, Beaumont and Wichita Falls. In 1928 Houston building permits touched $35,000,000, its record year, nineteen thirty eight Is the best year since then, topping by $5,500,000 permits Issued last year. About $12,000,000 went for building dwellings this year and 35 per cent for business and Industrial properties. Outstanding projects were a 10-story city hall, 13-story addition to the Chamber of Commerce building, a six-story oil and gas building and an apartment house project of 10 brick buildings.
