Newbern, N. C., Dec. 2.-Approxi-
mately 1200 persons, most of them ne-j
groes, were made homeless when
about 200 residences, two churches,'
two warehouses, and several small
stores were destroyed, and loss esti-
mated at $1,000,000, was caused by fire
which late Friday swept 20 blocks in
the western section of Newbern.
The flame, starting in the negro sec-
tion, gained great headway before, a
high wind at the start because the lo-
cal fire department was engaged on
the opposite side of the town at the
Roper Lumber company sawmill.
where $300,000 damage was estimated
to have been done.

Most of these stocks were purchased
during the war, or just after, and at
high prices, with the result that the

(By Associated Press)
Detroit, Dec. 2.-Business condi-
tions in Michigan at this time are such
as to give added weight to his pre-
diction, made a month ago, to the ei-
feet that this state early next year
will enter upon the greatest period of
prosperity it ever has known, accord-
ing to a statement issued to The Asso-
ciated Press by John L. Lovett, of De-
troit, secretary-treasurer of the Michi-
gan Manufacturers' Association.
Mr. Lovett generally is credited with
being in closer touch with mahufac-
turing and business conditions of the
state as a whole than any other per-
son in Michigan, as he makes frequent
surveys of these conditions.
Labor to be Scarce
In his statement a month ago the
secretary-manager predicted that
within the next few months Michigan
would be turning out manufactured
articles at a rate never before realized,
that labor would be scarce, due to
the unprecedented prosperity, that ri-
val firms would be bidding' against
each other for employes, that wages
would go higher, and that the state's
