Turning Leaves

This is the month of turning
leaves. In forests and along
the boulevards of well-planned
American towns, trees change
their appearance and the world
changes from late summer to

As these changes take place,
man too changes and his world
becomes a smaller and smaller
circle. Now, London and New
York, Stalingrad and Atlantic
City are practically neighbors
—but not quite. At least not

It's true that planes will car-
ry passengers from one to an-
other at remarkable speeds and
that a day's travel around the
world may not be far off. But
the jump from American life to
Russian life is quite impossible
and though we share our
tongue with the English, we
are still the breadth of the At-
lantic from understanding

Man has shortened the dis-
tance between countries and
with his atom bomb has short-
ened life expectancy consider-
ably. But the distance between
men's hearts is still immeasur-
able. Though we share the
radio waves, the secrets of our
hearts are still locked.

Until these secrets are shared
and explained, people to peo-
ple, atom bombs will remain
war materials and airplanes
will be considered with bomb
load, not passenger tonnage.

But if ever the seeds for
world understanding were ripe
for planting, now is the time.
From every corner of the
world, a great disgust for war
and its wastefulness arises.
People in Russia are as war-
weary as Americans. In Eng-
land, the repair job will take

This is the time to use radio
for common discussions and air-
planes for travel and cultural

interchange. If a jet plane can
cross the continent in six hours,
perhaps the hearts of men can
be brought one step closer by
peaceful use of machines in-

matched the season and turned
up a new leaf—perhaps—.

Ideas for the Near Future:

A skating party, with con-
tests and figure skating and
prizes and a grand finale that
includes every skater who
takes part in the regular Thurs-
day night skating bee.—

A class in expression, carried
out in connection with the
school but open to anyone and
operated on a pupil-pay basis,
and high-lighted ever so often
by a recitation declamation
contest put on as a feature of
public entertainment. (Oh, how
our young people especially
need this.)—

And now that the war is over
and cloth is more plentiful,
how's about a fashion show
featuring garments made from
Slater manufactured cloth?—

A community Thanksgiving
program, similar to the com-
munity Christmas programs
that have been so popular for
the past two years, and fea-
turing our school glee club.—

Students night—to be held
either at Thanksgiving or dur-
ing the Christmas holidays
when all of the girls and boys
who are away at school shall
be home. And honoring, not
only the college students, but
the senior class that will be
graduating in the coming

An amateur program, to give
our young people a chance to
find out how good they can do
certain things. (This could be
sponsored by the newly formed
16-30 club.)—

An old-fashioned spelling
bee, with none of the partici-
pants being under thirty-five.

Cloth Room Chatter

Mr. and Mrs. George Garland
visited Mr. and Mrs. Ralph
Brown, of Route 1, Taylors, last

Everyone was glad to see
Pfe. Thurman Pace home on a
furlough recently. He has al-
ready returned to his camp in
Augusta, Ga. Our best wishes
go with Thurman wherever he

Misses Corrine Dunn and
Clara Talley carried the Young
People's Sunday School Class
of Walnut Grove Church on a
chicken supper Saturday night
at Glassy Rock.

The Cloth Room recently
presented Mr. and Mrs. John D.
Edwards with a lovely set of
dishes and two towels as a wed-
ding gift. Congratulations, Mr.
and Mrs. Edwards!

We wish to welcome Wilton
Poole back to the Cloth Room.
He recently received his dis-
charge from the Army after 18
months of service.

Young Richardson

& M. College. He plans to take
Pre-Medicine at Clemson after
which he plans to enter medical

Young Richardson is the son
of Hines S. and Anna Mae
Montgomery Richardson who
have been residents of Slater
since 1938.

Junior graduated from Sla-
ter-Marietta High School with
the class of 1946. He was trea-
surer of his graduating class,
a member of the Beta Club, a
member of the Glee Club, and
a member of the basketball
team. At commencement he
was awarded the History

[half way down column 4]
medal. Young Richardson was
also very active in the Baptist
church, where he served as
president of his Sunday School

This young man went to
school for five consecutive
years without missing a day.
This certainly is a record which
deserves our praise.

Junior began working in the
Slater plant the latter part of
his senior year in high school
and continued working during
the past summer.

The people of the Slater com-
munity are proud of this young
man and others like him who
realize the need for higher ed-
ucation. His many friends wish
him unlimited success in his
future undertakings in the field
of medicine.

It costs 75 cents to kill a man
in Caesar's time. Estimates for
the last war indicate that it
cost the warring nations $50,-
000 for each man killed.

Girard, don't kill too many

The SAFE Way

[comic depicting man stepping and falling from toy cart and son]



If you think "Pop" is per-
forming a parlor trick, you're
wrong. He's trying to land
without breaking his neck.

We hope he has luck, but his
chances aren't too good.

The National Safety Council
tells us that 30,500 persons
were killed in home accidents
last year.

These men, women and chil-
dren were killed in many ways,
but half of the deaths were
caused by falls. Falls, like
many home accidents, are often
the fault of somebody besides
the victim.

Children must be taught to
pick up their playthings when
they are through playing with
them. Adults can set a good
example by leaving nothing
around, particularly on stairs
and steps, that might cause
someone to fall.

Falls are caused by grease or
milk or water not wiped up
from the kitchen floor, soap in
bathtubs, icy walks, broken
steps, porches without rails,
dark hallways, makeshift lad-
ders, unanchored rugs and
poorly lighted stairs cluttered
with mops, buckets, or rubbish.

Home accidents represent a
shameful human waste—a dan-
gerous waste during this period
of reconversion.

You can help reduce this toll
by making sure that neither
you nor members of your fam-
ily will be injured or killed as
a result of your carelessness.
It is the patriotic duty of every
member of your family to do
the same.
