Wounded Veteran
In Training Here

The Slater Manufacturing
Co., Inc., in cooperation with
the Veterans' Administration,
is glad to announce that it is
able to give training to Fred
Knight, a returned veteran who
was injured in the European
theater of operations over a
year ago while taking part in
an airborne operation that
hurled the Germans back to-
ward Germany.

Fred Knight is the son of E.
J. Knight, of Slater, who is a
loom fixer in our plant, and
worked here prior to going into
service. This injury to Fred's
leg is classed as a sixty per
cent disability; however, so far
as the Slater company is con-
cerned, this disability does not
handicap him in his work.

Under the arrangements with
the Veterans' Administration,
Knight is enabled to work part
time in our Weaving Depart-
ment and also to attend classes
in loom fixing. In this manner,
he is enabled to take this train-
ing for a definite period.

The company is very glad to
be able to work out this agree-
ment for the benefit of Knight,
and thus give him an oppor-
tunity to advance himself in
textiles, his chosen field.

The pupils of the Slater-
Marietta Schools are using the
Slater Library extensively. On
several occasions, members of
the Boys' and Girls' Library
Clubs have devoted a part of
their club periods to securing
material on certain subjects as-
signed to them at school. We
feel that it is fine to coordinate
the club and school work in this
fashion, and are glad that the
children themselves asked for
an arrangement of this kind.
Too, special material has been
obtained for some of the high
school students who are writing
research themes. Upon request,
the library will be glad to se-
cure material for any student
who is working on a paper re-
quiring material from several
sources. School children are
always welcome at the Slater
Library, and the librarian is
anxious to coordinate the lib-
brary activities with the work
of school whenever possible.

Some of the members of
Boys' Club had birthdays re-

Buddy Stephenson, son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Stephen-
son, was 11 years old on Jan-
uary 3.

Jimmy Revis was nine years
old on January 19. Jimmy is
a son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd

February 3 was "red letter"
day for Kenneth Waldrop,
since he celebrated his eleventh
birthday on this date. Kenneth
is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. T.
* * *
One of our newest library
members is Mrs. Jean Williams
of Marietta. Coming from New
York, Mrs. Williams is a com-
paratively new-comer to Mari-
etta, but she lost no time in
making a visit to the library.
She visits the library regularly,
getting material not only for
hereself, but for her husband
and children as well. We con-
gratulate Mrs. Williams and
her family on their interest in
reading, and invite them to
come to the library often.

Mrs. J. C. Bledsoe and Miss
Betty Foster, both office em-
ployees in the plant, are also
new library members. We are
always happy to add the names
of employees to the library roll,
and hope that the library can
be of service to them.

Mrs. Eleanor Horton, wife of
our druggist, is also a new
member. Although she and Dr.
Horton have lived in Slater
only a short time, they have
already made many friends
here. It is with great pleasure
that we welcome Mrs. Horton
as a new library member.

Listed among our new mem-
bers is Angelan Hunt, of Mari-
etta. She attends the local
high school, being a member of
the eleventh grade. Angelan
has already secured some spe-
cial material for a paper she is
writing, and we hope that she
will continue to come to the li-
brary for help of this kind.
The secret of success in con-
versation is to be able to dis-
agree without being disagree-
