Martin to overseer of weaving on the third shift on Job 3 in Weave Room No.1, J.W. Smith to Training Instructor, and B. H. Pierce to overseer of overhauling.

John L. Winstead has been employed here since 1941, having first been employed as a loom fixer. By December, 1943, Mr. Winstead had advanced to overseer of weaving on the third shift in Weave Room No. 2.

At the time of his discharge from the Army, Mr. Winstead was a sergeant.
