charge from service, Mr. Win-
stead returned to his work here
as overseer of weaving, and
was assigned to the second
shift in Weave Room No. 2.
Later he was made overseer of
overhauling and continued on
this job until his most recent

This supervisor is married to
the former Miss Ludean Thorn-
hill. The Winsteads reside at
42 First Street here at Slater.
They have no children.

J. B. Martin, who becomes
overseer of weaving on the
third shift on Job 3 in Weave
Room No. 1, first came with
the Slater Company in Jan-
uary, 1945 as a loom fixer. Prior
to coming here, Mr. Martin was
connected with Judson Mill in
Greenville, S. C. He was em-
ployed there from 1928 to 1945.

The new overseer is married
to the former Miss Fannie Lou
Spears, and the family resides
in Greenville. The Martins
have two children. He is a na-
tive of Georgia and is a Mason.

J. W. Smith first came to this
company in 1937 and by April,
1944 had become a loom fixer.
Before coming to Slater, Mr.
Smith was employed at Alta
Vista, Va.

While working here, Mr.
Smith resumed his education
and attended the Slater-Mari-
etta Schools and was graduated
in the Class of 1944 from that
institution. Soon after his grad-
uation, he was called into the
Army and served until July 2
of this year. Soon after re-
ceiving his honorable discharge,
Mr. Smith returned to his work

This former soldier spent five

and one-half months overseas

of his discharge he was a cor-

Mr. Smith is married to the
former Miss Virginia Maud
Smith, and this couple has one
child, one son. The Smiths now
reside in Greenville.

B. H. Pierce is an old timer
at Slater, as he first became
connected with this company in
1931 and has remained here
ever since.

During the late war, Mr.
Pierce served this company
well as an overseer of weaving,
but with the return of peace,
he went back to his old job of
loom fixing.

Mr. Pierce is married to the
former Miss Florida Cox, and
this couple have two children.
The Pierce family resides on
Route 2, Marietta, S. C. Mr.
Pierce is a Mason.

The best wishes of all con-
cerned go to these men in their
new positions, and it is with a
great deal of pleasure that the
company is able to again pro-
mote men from the ranks as
vacancies in the supervisory
force appear. This policy has
been in force at this plant for
a number of years.

Religion may ask a hard
thing: faith in the dark; but
irreligion asks an impossible
thing: faith in the darkness.—
Dr. W. L. Sullivan, "Atlantic."

You can't give character to
another person, but you can en-
courage him to develop his own
by possessing one yourself.—
Artemus Calloway, "Birming-
ham Age-Herald."

Gosnell and Mr. Roy Summey
sang, "Let the Rest of the
World Go By." Mrs. W. W.
Stephenson played the piano
accompaniment for both the
solos and the duet. A quartet,
composed of Mesdames Eithel
Gosnell and W. W. Stephenson
and Messrs. Roy Summey and
Ralph Sullivan, sang "Home on
the Range," "In the Evening
By the Moonlight," "Grand-
father's Clock," and "Short'nin'
Bread." They were accom-
panied at the piano by Mrs.
W. Earle Reid.

The games were planned and
directed by Mrs. Ruby McGill,
who led the guests in playing
"Receiving Line" and "Passing
the School Bell."

Mrs. Mary Ledford, who pre-
sided over the program, then
called for remarks from Mr. J.
A. White, who spoke as a
trustee of the local school. Mr.
R. H. Atkinson spoke next,
representing the Slater Com-
munity Association, after which
Mr. J. H. Barnett, Superintend-
ent of the Slater-Marietta
Schools, introduced each of the
teachers. A count was made
of the number of parents repre-
enting each teacher's room,
and flowers were awarded the

number of parents parent. Mr.

We congratulate the children
of the Thursday P. M. Story
Hour group on the splendid
performance which they gave
at Slater Hall on Tuesday
night, August 27. Every child
participating did well, and we
are justly proud of the entire

Members of the Girls' Li-
brary Club have enjoyed a
number of dart games during
the summer. At a recent event
of this kind, Annorr Cooper
won first place with a score of
920. Joyce Bryant's score of
720 put her in second place,
while Freida Thornton took
third place with 510 points.

Dale McWhite, a member of
the Thursday P. M. Story Hour
group, was made very happy
on September 6, by the arrival
of a "brand new" baby sister,
Dona Elizabeth. Dale is very
proud of his little sister, and
is quoted as saying that he
"won't sell her—not even for a
whole quarter."

Birthday greetings are in or-
der for Peggy Scarce, who was
8 years old on September 6.
We hope that Peggy's eighth
birthday was a happy one, and
that she will enjoy many more.

The library clubs lost two
faithful members when Gloria
and Abie Cook moved to
Greensboro, N. C. Gloria was
a member of the Friday after-
noon Story Hour Group, while
Abie was a member of the Boys'
Club. We miss Gloria and
Abie at the library, but we
hope that they are enjoying
their new home in Greensboro.
We also hope that they won't
forget Story Hour and Boys'
Club, and that they will visit
us as often as possible.

Gloria and Abie are the chil-
dren of Mr. and Mrs. Frank A.
Cook. Mr. Cook has been pro-
moted to the Greensboro office
where he will direct Industrial
Relations for several mills.

We had two visitors at the
library clubs recently. The
first of these was Opal Thorn-
ton of Washington, D. C., who
spent several days with the R.
W. Thorntons. We were glad
to have her come to Girls' Club
with Freida.

Gay Horton of Belmont, N.
C. is the other visitor we wish
to mention. She is a cousin of
Carol Ann Richardson, and vis-
ited Story Hour during her
stay in Slater.
A. White, Allen Suttle, Clint
Hawkins, and Miss Inez Gra-

Mrs. Eithel Gosnell is presi-
dent of the Civic Club.


We wish to express our sin-

offerings and all other expres-
sions of sympathy shown us by
our many friends during our
recent bereavement.
