The situation doesn’t seem to improve at the Marlinton Tannery. International Shoe has been trying to sell, but so far there has been no sale. Friday, orders were carried out to start the closing process. The last hides were being laid down Friday; it will take about two months to complete the cycle. Four jobs were eliminated last week, about fifteen will go this week, about a half dozen next week.
