On September 21, Miss Camille Cleveland, Field Director of the Girl Scouts in Greenville County, accompanied the two Greenville girls to Asheville where plans were made for the November meeting in Asheville. At this preliminary meeting, which was held at the Battery Park Hotel, representatives were present from Asheville and Gastonia in North Carolina and from Spartanburg, South Carolina. These representatives met with the Greenville group. The Scouts and thier leaders visited the auditorium where the meeting is to be held. Afterwards, the group had dinner at the George Vanderbilt Hotel.

Watch the grits you buy and be sure they are the best you can buy - if the degerminated grits on the market are not enriched, don't buy them. People should learn to eat homeground grits if the law isn't enforced to make these out-ofstate corn millers enrich their degerminated grits. If you as consumers demand they be enriched, these companies will know there's more to it than a fancy dream dreamt up by long-haired college professors. Don't say ''Grandpa grew up on grits and lived to be 90'' unless you are sure what kind of grits he ate. Two to one they were home ground grits with all the good left in. Two to one the pretty white grits of today would have made Grandpa laugh and say, ''sissy grits I call 'em.''

Barney E. DeWease, Jr.

Prior to his induction, Barney was employed as a cloth doffer in Weave Room No. 1. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Barney DeWease of Slater. After serving six months in the states, he was shipped overseas to the Asiatic-Pacific Area, where he saw action in three major campaigns, Iwo Jima, Oahu and Guam. Barney returned to work here on his former job soon after receiving his Honorable Discharge in April 1946. At the time of his discharge from the Navy, he was S-1/C.

James L. Batson

This man first began working for our Plant in 1938, and at the time of his induction was employed as a yarn checker in the Preparation Department. He remained in the states twenty-six months, and served with the Corps of the Military Police. He served almost two years in the E. T. O. and saw action in battles in Ireland, Scotland, and England. James received his Honorable Discharge Dec. 20, 1945, and returned to work at this Plant as a supply clerk in May, 1946.

Perry M. Rampey

Perry began working here as a weaver in 1939 and was employed in Weave Room No. 1 at the time that he was called to service in May, 1943. He remained in the states fifteen months before going overseas, where he served nineteen months in the E. T. O., participating in battles in French, Belgium, and German territory. In a few days after receiving his Honorable Discharge in April, 1946, Perry accepted his old job back here.

William M. Lybrand, Jr.

Before coming here to work in 1943, Mr. Lybrand was Genneral Overseer in the Preparation Department at Stanley Mill. He was employed by this Company as an Overseer of the third shift in the Preparation Department, and was still employed as overseer when he was called to the Army in May, 1944. He received the regular rifle training and special training as a radio operator. He served sixteen months in the E. T. O., where he was on active combat duty during two major campaigns.

[Column 3] Ceremony Unites Young Slaterites

Miss Sara Dewease became the bride of Mr. Ed. McMakin on Sunday afternoon, September 15, at the Slater Baptist Church. The Rev. Charles T. Thompson, pastor of the bride, was the officiating minister.

The church altar was decorated with palm, fern, and floor baskets of white gladioli,, flanked with candelabra holding white tapers. The candles were lighted by Miss Lila Kate Arms.

Mrs. W. W. Stephenson, pianist, and Miss Lila Kate Arms, vocalist, rendered nuptial music.

Barney Dewease, Jr., brother of the bride, and James H. Oglesby served as ushers, and Joe Ward was best man.

The bride's only attendants

[Picture] Mrs. Annie Wilson was recently honored at a birthday party given by Mr. and Mrs. Glen Wilson. Shown above are Mrs. Wilson and her granddaughter, Joyce Sue Wilson, who also celebrated a birthday. The little boy, Donnie Sherrill Wilson, a grandson, also celebrated his birthday on this occasion.


Now that the boys are returning to work in increasing numbers, Halloween offers a wonderful opportunity for a mixed evening party - reunion or get-aquainted variety. If someone is lucky enough to have a house or large apartment, so much the better, but a good party doesn't ask for more than a clean floor and a desire to have a good time.

As always, the main problems confronting the hostess at any gathering are those having to do with food and entertainment, so we have here a few suggestions. By all means have six or eight others share the expense, work and ideas. It is too easy for the party to become a burden when one person is responsible for it, and there are few ways of becoming acquainted as successful as en-

were Mrs. Allison Hathaway, matron of honor, and Miss Robbie Bishop, bridesmaid.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a light blue gabardine suit with black accessories. Her corsage was red rose buds.

Immediately after the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Barney E. Dewease, of Slater.

Following a week's honeymoon trip to Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tenn., the couple are now at home at No. 207 Butler Avenue, Greenville.

Out of town guests who attended the wedding included the following: Mr. J. M. Hathaway and Mr. and Mrs. Allison Hathaway, from Pageland; Mr. Joe Ward, Greensboro; Miss Robbie Bishop, Greenville; Mrs. Mrs. L. R. Morgan, Mrs. Minnie Buckner, Mrs. Vivian Howlington, Miss Ethel Buckner, and Mr. Cecil Buckner, all from Asheville; Mrs. Talmadge Mayfield, Greenville; and Mr. James Henderson from Green River.

listing in a dish-washing corps.

If you have four or five carowners on your guest list, progressive dinners are an excellent idea. One or two people can be responsible for cocktails; another couple for soup and salad; a third in the next block or upstairs apartment can serve the main course; a fourth can prepare dessert; and the fifth will lend her living room for the evening. If your dining room table is small, the serving can be simplified by letting the guests help themselves buffer style and putting trays on their laps or on end tables. If your living room is large, the group can be divided up and placed at bridge tables.

If the party is an after-dinner event, a few light refreshments served half-way through the evening will suffice. Potato chips and popcorn can be brought in big cans, and a large mixing bowl of cream cheese, anchovy paste, onions and Worcestershire sauce is an excellent concoction for potato chip dunkers. Incidentally, cold drinks are a must with the above.

As for the entertainment side of the party, an old game currently enjoying a revival is one appropriately called ''Ghosts.'' ''Ghosts'' can be played by any where from 6 to 30 people and requires only a sheet, a black cloth and a broom. The director and a person chosen by the group to be ''it'' stay in the room while the rest of the guests leave to choose the Ghost. He re-enters wearing a sheet which trails on the floor and which is held above him by the broom to disguse his height. The black cloth is used as a mask and is pinned or pasted to the sheet where the face should be. Then the person who is ''it'' must guess the identity of the Ghost. If he does guess the name of the Ghost, the Ghost becomes ''it.'' If not, he must pay a forfeit. Then a new ''it'' is chosen and the game continues.

A game for the sedentary is nameless as far as we know, but consists of cutting out and pasting on shirt laundry cardboard advertisements from the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal or other magazines of that size. The object of the game is to include the picture and slogan of the product but not the name, then hold up the cardboard before the guests and have them write down the name of the product. The player who guesses the most products correctly may be given a prize, or may be asked to pay a forfeit - announced at the end of the game.

Basketball is a popular sport at Slater. Plans are underway for several teams here at Slater this winter.

Boat piers at the lake (new last year) will be completed by summer, and the camp expects to have a fleet of 12 rowboats for use by the scouts on this five-acre body of water. The camp chapel has been improved by the addition of a cupola and a bell given by Fred M. Medlock of Laurens, and by the addition of benches in the chapel given by Mr. and Mrs. Traverse S. Foster of Greenville.

Camp Old Indian had an enrollment of more than a thousand boy-weeks last summer and next season promises to be even larger, Mr. Williamson said. The camp had an enviable health record last summer, he added, with no serious accidents, and, according to the report made by Dr. Alva S. Pack, chairman of the health and safety committee, the campers gained 4,000 pounds of weight during the summer, or an average of four pounds per boy per week.

The ideal camp experience comes to the scout who attends camp with his troop, camp officials feel. The camp program offers an opportunity for troops to attend as a unit and to carry on their own program, supplemented by general camp activities and the assistance of the central camp staff.

Periods for next summer, to begin with the evening meal on Wednesday and close with the noon meal the following Tuesday, have been scheduled as follows: first period, June 11-17, pioneer camp - camp staff only; second period, June 18-24; third, June 25-July 1; fourth, July 2-8; fifth, July 9-15; sixth, July 16-22; and seventh, July 23-29.

Camp Old Indian is two miles east of highway 26 (GreenvilleHendersonville highway), 26 miles north of Greenville.


Today's column is a note of public thanks to the person or persons responsible for bringing to Slater two very good pictures recently. They are ''Sister Kenny'' and ''Stanley and Livingston.''

''Sister Kenny'' is a pictorial story of the life of Miss Elizabeth Kenny, Australian bush nurse who discovered a new and practical and revolutionary method of treatment for the victims of infantile paralysis - a method that leaves the patient whole and well and uncrippled with no trace of the disease.

''Stanley and Livingston'' is the story of the adventures of David Livingston, missionary explorer who went from London to Africa in the latter part of the last century. The things he found and the works he accomplished while in the Dark Continent provide a thrilling and inspiring two hours of entertainment.

Long ago educators recognized the advantage of pictures as an educational factor, and more recently many of our schools and churches have been using visual aids as a supplement to teaching. ''One picture is worth a hundred words.''

Mostly, we think of the movies as a source of entertainment, but they are much more than juat that; they are a source of great influence on the lives of the peoples of a community.

In Slater, the majority of movie goers are our young people. When these young people see in pictured stories the lives of the great people who have had a part in making advances in medicine, science, religion, literature, art, music, politics, or anything that goes toward making living better, they themselves are inspired to appreciate and achieve greatness.

Another reason why these two pictures are especially appreciated is that people naturally seek some form of recreation, and when good, clean, stimulating fun is provided, the tendancy to seek out undesirable forms of excitement is lessened.

Thanx for a couple of really outstanding pictures!

Card of Thanks

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to my fellow workers and many friends in this community for the beautiful floral offering and for the many kindnesses shown me during the recent illness and death of my husband, Mr. Jim Kelly.

Some Hints For The Lady Folks

Did you know that both the Labor Department in Washington and the New York Herald Tribune have prepared pamphlets to help you plan, buy for and prepare meals for two? Information of this nature is always invaluable, because most of the better cook books have recipes for four or more, and no matter how you divide them, you never seem to come out right. For these pamphlets, write to the Department of Labor, Statistical Division, Washington, D. C.; and to the New York Herald Tribune, Food Editor, New York, New York, asking for Cooking for Two. * * * Next time you have to put a dish of food directly on the ice, place a fruit jar rubber ring under it. The ring will stick to both the ice and dish and

[article continues on column 3, middle section]

will hold the latter in place. * * * Rather than dirty a grate or rolling pin, rub to pieces of dry bread together when you want crumbs again. Do you use those on cauliflower? It's amazing what they do for an otherwise uninteresting dish, and you don't have to fuss with hollandaise sauce. Speaking of

[article continues on column 4, middle section]

bread, try croutons in tomato or pea soup—fried in butter, they' delicious. If you're short on butter, use bacon fat. * * * When a recipe calls for egg whites alone, place the yolks in a well-greased baking dish which can in turn be placed in a pan of boiling water. When cooked, the yolks can be used as salad or hot dish garnishes. If you have any leftover fried eggs, just chop them up and

Miss Davis (Con't. from page 1, col. 4)

She also made a brief tour of the village to see the churches, homes, and clinic.

On this occasion, a number of parents, teachers, and high school students were guests of the Civic Club to hear Miss Davis as she gave some of her impressions of America, and now taking place in England. At the close of her discussion, Miss Davis conducted an interesting "question and answer" period, which was for the benefit of those who wished to ask questions.

As an added attraction for the evening, Miss Kathleen Farnsworth, teacher in the local school, rendered a cello number, after which she presented the following high school girls in a special vocal number: Misses Patricia Summey, Freida Thornton, Betty Vassey, Faye Dean, and Carolyn Marsh. The piano accompaniment for these numbers was played by Mrs. W. W. Stephenson.

Those who heard Miss Davis thoroughly enjoyed her discussion, and hope that she will visit Slater again at her earliest convenience.

The program for this meeting was planned by Miss Inez Graham and Mrs. W. Earle Reid. __________________________ [column 5]


We were very happy to have Betty Scarce and Gaile ("Butch") Burgess read stories at a recent meeting of the Thursday Afternoon Story Hour group. Betty read "The Travels of a Fox," while "Butch" read "Ask Mr. Bear." Both of these children are in the first grade this year, and Miss Margaret Coleman is their teacher. These girls read fluently and with expression, and all those present enjoyed hearing them. We not only congratulate Betty and "Butch" for their fine reading progress, but we also commend their parents and their teacher for the part they have played in the achievements of these children. _______________ It is always a great pleasure to welcome new members to the library. Our library roll continues to increase, and we credit a great deal of this to you readers who, finding joy in your reading, wish to shre it with others by telling them what the library means to you. To you who have not yet joined the library, we extend an invitation to do so at your earliest convenience. We need you, and we believe that the library can add a great deal to your "reading happiness."

This week we greet Mrs. Grace Griffin as a new library member. Mrs. Griffin is one of the second grade teachers in the local school, and we hope that the library can assist her not only in securing materials for her own reading, but in supplying materials for her school work, as well.

Mrs. Christine Stockton Miller is also a new member. Christine and her husband lived in Slater until recently, when they moved to Cleveland. We welcome Christine as a library member, and look forward to having her visit the library as often as possible.

Little Betty Ruth Ross is another new member, both for the library and for the Thursday Afternoon Story Hour group. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Ross. Her sister, Violet, has been a member of the Girls' Library Club for quite a while.

Our latest addition to the library roll is Fred Cashion. Fred is an employee of the Slater Manufacturing Co., Inc. and works in the Weaving Department. _____________ We feel that Mr. and Mrs. Edward Laws and family deserve honorable mention for their unusual reading record. Living out of the village, they sometimes find it a little inconvenient to get to the library. Nevertheless, they do visit the library regularly, always getting a supply of books sufficient to last until the next trip. We understand that the whole family reads these books, after which they are often read by relatives and neighbors who live near. To the Edward Laws family, we say "Congratulations! Keep up the good work!

Everyone Needs Self Confidence (Courtesy ''SHE'')

earnestly to know is, ''Can it be done?''

''Yes,'' says psychiatry. By learning to see themselves realistically, the unconfident can turn the trick of believing in themselves. Seeing yourself realistically simply means seeing yourself as you are - counting your good points as well as your demerits, your accomplishments as well as your failures. And if you can tke this prescription, you'll be taking psychic vitamins.

The unconfident neede the psychic vitamin of realism, for they have no clear vision of themselves. They know their lacks well, but not their virtues. They are expert at scorning, belittling, disparaging and underrating themselves - but not at valuing themselves. Their talents aren't spectacular enough, they think. Their achievements are nothing. To their good qualities, they're blind. People may think well of them. The evidence may be stacked high in their favor. But they don't budge their selfrespect from its same low level.

superior to me. But I can't seem to help it . . . it's a habit.''

It's a habit, all right - one of deflating ourselves while we inflate others. And it's a disastrous habit calculated to send anyone's self-confidence into a depression, to make any of us feel small and inadequate and unworthy and unwanted. But, fortunately, it's a habit that can be changed. And the best way to change it is by cultivating a policy of thinking well of ourselves, of putting together again the opinion of ourselves that we've torn to shreds.

Take a good look at your assets, says the psychiatrist, instead of forever harping on your faults. In other words, instead of always thinking about what they've got that you haven't got, start thinking about what you've got.

''But what are my assets?'' many ask in bewilderment. ''I didn't know I had any.'' Assets aren't world-shaking things reserved for the great and the mighty. All of us have them. They are everything - little or big - that we do in the course of a day or a year, and that we do well. These things that we do well are the evidence in our favor. They can be our credit sheet in life. The reason so many of us pass them up is that we're so busy staring at other people's glory and at our own shortcomings.

So here are few to remind you. Maybe you're well-read or well-informed. Maybe you have a pleasing personality, do nice things for others, get along swimmingly with people. Maybe you keep your home in apple-pie order, though you haven't remarked it to yourself lately. Maybe that job of yours is ''responsible'' or ''interesting'' as everyone says it is, though you yourself talk it down. And maybe there are lost of other jobs you do well that you count as mere nothings. Maybe, in other words, you've been seeing yourself lopsidely - your good points and accomplishments in a haze, your failings in bold relief. To see yourself realistically, on the other hand, means to see yourself whole, to let your good qualities get a grip on your thinking. And when they get that grip - when you earnestly believe in them - you'll have all the confidence you want.

William James, the great psychologist, spoke of a per-

[Column 5] son's ''inner atmosphere.'' It's the feeling tone our criss-crossing thoughts and emotions create deep inside of us. It may be a nice, warm, cozy feeling of self-content, of knowing that we are good enough for life. Or it may be just the opposite. We, ourselves, make it the one or the other.

If we are ridden with doubt and mistrust, if our self-respect is shabby then the prevailing message we send to our hearts daily is one of self-disapproval and sick despair. But if, on the other hand, our prevailing message is that we are as good as the next fellow and can tackle our life job as well, then our inner mood glows with satisfaction and vitality and hope. We feel equal to ''anything that may turn up,'' as James says.

This emotion-warming conviction that we are equal to life is the healthy inner glow that self-confidence creates. - Stella K. Newman

I saw a ghostly legion march, Across a wind swept plain; Into the gloom they disappeared Ne'er to return again. And as the star shells burst above, In brilliant, ghastly light, I saw their forms, as still they lay, Surrounded by the night.

And suddenly my vision waned, I lived in yesterday, I stood upon a platform built Beside a teeming way; And there I watched the soldiers' march Along the crowded street, And 'midst the frenzied cheers I heard The tread of marching feet.

But I saw not the well groomed men, I saw the gaps between, And once again my mind recalled That dreadful battle scene. I saw again the rain swept field Where heroes' deeds were done And from the sky I heard a voice, "God bless them, ev'ryone."

I can see my little cottage, Where I hope that I'll soon be— The only place this side of Heaven That is home sweet home to me.

I can see the little trail-way That leads up to the door. I hope how soon I'll travel there To part again no more.

When my mission has finally ended; Then joy once more I'll find With those bright familiar faces In my home in Caroline.

The Office team is leading in the Slater Softball League by three games at the end of six weeks of play. The High School team has dropped from first to second place with six wins and six losses.

More rivalry is being shown between the teams as the season draws to a close, as each team is trying to improve its standing in the league. More spectators are coming to the games and pulling for their favorite teams to win.

The last scheduled game is to be played on July 17. After this, an all-star team is to be selected, and games will be scheduled with leading softball teams in Greenville. We believe that Slater will be able to put a good team on the field and can offer plenty of competition to the Greenville teams.

I shouldn't be hard to write a letter to your loved ones in the service. Not if you know what to write about. Tell them that the elm trees are in leaf on Main Street, that you are doing over his room in anticipation of his return, that you're having wonderful luck with your victory garden, that the girl next door is growing up, and all the other little homey items that take place in the course of any average day. Keep your letters cheerful and newsy, and you'll have him bragging to his buddies about the swell letters he gets.

And write often! V-Mail is the best medium for overseas letters, and the forms are so designed that you can write often and still have news to spare for future letters. You'll be doing a greater deed than you can possibly imagine if you write cheery letters frequently. For you'll be bolstering the morale of men who'll achieve victory much more quickly if they have the inspiration of your letters to back them up. Won't you write that letter now?

[Column 1] Machines Are The Leading Cause Of Accidents In American Industry

The machines of American industry are the best machines in the world. They do practically everything but think. Yet, though they lack the brain with which every human being is endowed, they have taken a heavy toll of American lives during these years of high pressure, accurate war production. It is odd to not this fact, for it would seem that the common sense of the average human would be adequate protection against accidents caused by the lifeless object a machine is. But such is not the case. There is not a day that passes but what injuries are inflicted on careless workers who refuse to think of their personal safety when engaged in machine occupations.

Most machine accidents are based on nothing more than out and out carelessness. The majority of them need never have happened had the worker been familiar with the simple rudiments of safety and made practical use of his common sense.

Accidents suffered by workers operating machines are the result of pure carelessness in the large majority of cases. The worker who familiarizes himself with his job and who respects his machine seldom comes in contact with doctors.

Let's make an effort to educate ourselves and our co-workers in the safe manner of machine operation. Study the following rules for safe machine operation and pass them on to the fellow who is a steady customer of the plant doctor. You'll find that these rules are based on good common sense and that it won't take much effort on your part to remember them.

1. Before operating your machine be sure that all guards are in place. They're not ornaments! They have been placed there for your protection!

2. Don't attempt to operate any machine other than the one to which you've been assigned.

3. Remember that long sleeves, neckties and loose clothing are extremely dangerous around moving machinery. This goes for gloves, rings, and wristwatches, too. You should dress just as carefully for work as you do for that heavy date on your night out.

4. Don't think for a minute that you can act as a human brake for any part of a moving machine. The hospitals are full of people who carelessly placed their hands on moving parts of machines.

5. Keep your machine clear of tools unless you absolutely need them. And if you do need them keep your eye on them so that they don't become entangled with moving parts.

6. Stop your machine before you attempt repairs or adjust(Con't. on page 2, col. 5)

Mr. Lybrand Dies At His Home Here

Countless friends of the Lybrand family were saddened to learn of the death of James Austin Lybrand, Sr., who died at the family residence, 24 Third St., Slater, S. C., on Friday morning September 7, 1945, at 8:15 o'clock, after an illness of six months. Mr. Lybrand was 74 years of age.

Mr. Lybrand was a highly esteemed citizen of this community and was loved and respected by all who knew him. He was a good husband, a devoted father and one who constantly worked for the betterment of his community, state and nation as he strove to encourage all things of a worthwhile nature.

By birth, Mr. Lybrand was a native South Carolinian. He was born and reared in Lexington County where his family is well known and recognized as citizens of outstanding worth. Mr. Lybrand was the son of the late Robert and Mary (Lever) Lybrand. He received his education in the public schools of that county.

For many years, Mr. Lybrand was in the mercantile business at Great Falls, S. C., but 17 years ago came to Slater as Manager of a mercantile establishment here. Later he became postmaster, but retired ten years ago on account of his health.

Almost 51 years ago, Mr. Lybrand married Miss Sarah Oglesby, who survives him and to this union, four sons and three daughters were born. Of these seven children only three survived Mr. Lybrand and are James Austin Lybrand, Jr., of Greensboro, N. C., Assistant Secretary and Treasurer of S. Slater and Sons, Inc., Mrs. Elizabeth Lybrand Christopher, of Knoxville, Tenn., and Mrs. Margaret Lybrand Wright of Slater. Preceeding Mr. Lybrand to the grave were three sons, William Martin Lybrand, Claude E. Lybrand and Roy Lybrand and one daughter, Miss Ruth Lybrand. (Con't. on page 4, col. 2)

[Column 4] The Annual Communtiy Chest Drive Is Now Well Underway At Slater

The elementary teachers are: Miss Frances Bishop, Greenville, S. C., First Grade; Miss Margaret Coleman, Travelers Rest, S. C.; First Grade; Miss Amilee Batson, Travelers Rest, S. C.; First and Second Grades; Miss Hazel Vaughan, Westminster, S. C., Second Grades; Miss Elizabeth Thompson, Duncan, S. C., Second Grade; Miss Elizabeth McDaniel, Greenville, S.

Local Library Offers Facilities

With the opening of school, we would like to call the attention of both the pupils and faculty to the library facilities offered by the Community Library. We are especially anxious to serve the reading needs of those connected with the school and hope that our library conveniences can supplement those of the school.

During the last school session, the Community Library secured from the Greenville Public Library, a number of books suitable for book reports. These books were used extensively in the English and History courses, and our librarian will be glad to work out a similar arrangement for the present session.

In addition to books for parallel reading and book reports, we would like to men(Con't. on page 4, col. 3)

[Column 5]

The annual drive to raise funds for the Community Chest of Greater Greenville is now underway at Slater and throughout the county. The drive in most places began on September 17th and will end Saturday, September 22nd. S. Slater & Sons, Inc. is observing this period for its drive.

Solicitations will be handled the same this year as last year, and are being made by the overseers on each shift. It is hoped that a spirit of rivalry will take place and that Slater will overscribe its quota as it has in the past.

Last year S. Slater & Sons, Inc. led the textile division with a contribution of $3,088.- 00, or a total of $3.43 per person. The mill nearest Slater in the drive was Duncan Mill, of Greenville, with a total of $7,993.48, or an average per employee of $2.85. Third place went to our neighbor, Renfrew Bleachery, with a total contribution of $1,167.24, or an average of $2.46 per employee.

In the order named the mills followed: Judson Mill, Union Bleachery, Poinsette Mill, Brandon Corporation, Westboro Weaving Company, Victor-Monoghan Co., Piedmont Plush Mill, F. W. Poe Manufacturing Co., Southern Pile Fabric Co., Florence Mills, Southern Weaving Co., Southern Franklin Process Co., Co., Woodside Cotton Mill, Camperdown Mill, Southern Worsted Co., and Mills Mill.

Some people may feel that since the war is over it will not be necessary to give as much as was the case during the war, but this is a mistaken idea, as the war against poverty, disease, and want is a continuous one and the same problems will continue in this county just the same as under war conditions and will, no doubt, be increased as the ranks of the unemployed increase.

Many of the agencies supported by the Chest are of direct aid to the people of this community, and when a person has made his contribution, he has that sense of having helped those less fortunate than themselves. This, of course, is the Christian ideal, for it has been said and proven that we are our brother's keeper.

As we go to press, it has been learned that overseer Oscar R. Drury, of the second shift, Preparation Department, has already reached his quota, and is the first to reach his goal. The amount subscribed is not known, and no doubt Mr. Drury and his workers will oversubscribe their quota.

Allen Suttle is in charge of the drive at Slater. In addition, Mr. Suttle is Lt. Colonel of the Textile Division for Greater Greenville.

[Column 1] Community Chest Is Mighty Asset

When President Truman offically announced total victory over the Japanese the nation embarked on a two day period of celebration. Victory over the Japs meant that the horrors of war were a thing of the past. It meant that our boys would soon be home to stay and that families all over the world would suffer no more the agony of fear for the safety of loved ones fighting in the far reaches of the Pacific. But the official proclamation of the long awaited V-J day did not mean the cessation of hostilities against the homefront problems of the care of the sick and needy, Child Welfare, Care of the Aged and the various other social problems which it is our civic duty to combat with our understanding and dollars! That's why we must give more generously than ever before to our local community chest fund!

Your local community chest performs a mighty civic function in which you can well be proud of taking part. It mothers those agencies its funds in the names of Liberty, Justice and Equality in order that there may be a dearth of suffering among the oppressed and needy of this great nation.

You can't possibly give to a better cause than that of your local community chest. Your contribution to the current community chest drive will provide medical attention in the form of visiting nurses, hospitals and clinics to your less fortunate neighbor. It will provide recreation and guidance to children who are sadly underprivileged and who would never know the real joys of childhood if the Y. W. C. A., the Legal Aid Society, Community Centers and the Children's Aid Society. Your dollars will do all these things! They will go to the homes of the aged and infirm and provide comfort, cheer and consolation to motherless children in the form of homes and guidance. They will combat racial prejudice and intolerance, but, best of all, they will give you the right to walk down your street with a clear conscience and a justifiable pride in the knowing that you have done your part in eliminating suffering and want in your own community!

Mothering numerous subsidiary agencies, the community chest seeks your support, yearly, in order that you may give to many worthwhile causes through the medium of a single contribution. Your community chest fund eliminates the necessity of numerous drives for operating funds by many agencies by covering their financial needs through one all-out campaign the success of which is entirely up to you.

You were generous in warnow is your chance to be generous in victory. Help abolish needless suffering and misery by digging down deep and giving more generously than you ever did before to the current community chest fund.
