Transcript tive condition. Please refer to the accompanying chart. New Developments The more important new additions to the revenue producing departments of the different hotels are the sixteen new units opened at the Town House in Los Angeles and the new fountain and package liquor store at the Palmer House. The new Lanai units at the Town House, construction of which was started in 1948, were completed and furnished ready for use in May 1949. They have proven extremely popular. The new fountain and package liquor store was opened October 6, 1949 in space that was formerly a part of the wrapping and storage area of the old liquor store, thus putting it to more productive use. The new Caribe- Hilton, opened on December 9, 1949, has been described elsewhere. On April 8, 1949 your Corporation entered into an agreement with the Chamber of Commerce of Oakland, California, to operate, on a percentage lease, a hotel to be erected in Oakland during the years 1950 and 1951.

The proposal calls for a development including stores, large parking areas, restaurants, swimming pool and a modern 400 room air-conditioned hotel to be built on a site on Wilshire Boulevard.

This of course does not include the employees of the Waldorf-Astoria, Mayflower, Roosevelt, or Caribe-Hilton numbering approximately 4,700. Payroll and other related expenses such as Federal retirement and unemployment taxes, workmen's compensation, etc., amounted to $15,721,272.20. The accompanying table indicates the comparison for the last three years. Relations between your Corporation and its employees continue harmonious. The management wishes to take this opportunity to extend its appreciation to its employees for their loyal effort and cooperation. Managers' meetings were held both in Chicago and New York. These meetings were attended by departmental heads as well as executives. Panel discussions were held on all subjects relating to operating methods and controls. The 1949 meetings were the most successful held to date. Acquisitions and Sales As you have heretofore been advised in the Quarterly Report for the nine months ended
