Bids On State
The opening of bids for the semi
annual supplies for the various
state institutions under the juris
diction ot the state board of con
trol, Thursday, was attended by
more than the udual spirit of rival
ry', indicating, board of ' control
members declared, a keener desire
for new business than has been dis
played at any time during the past
few years. While it will require
several days to check over the bids
in order to arrive at any accurate
comparisons with former prices, a
general trend toward reductions
was noticeable in most lines. This
is especially true in the case of
wool blankets which show a ma
terial decline from their former
high plane. The bids opened
Thursday cover the needs of the
state institutions in the line of gro
ceries, clothing, drugs and miscel
laneous supplies for the six months
period from January 1 to June 30.
