New Year Resolutions
Almost as fast as New Years
come and go, so go the New
Year resolutions of Mr. and
Mrs. Average America.
Perhaps to some people, as it
seems to us, the keeping of New
Year resolutions is about as
difficult as sticking to the plan
of a ten day diet. There are so
few things to eat for the first
few days, and we begin the diet
with a feeling of resoluteness
that becomes a feeling of virtue
after several days because we
have kept to the diet.
BUT THEN -- along about
the fourth day Mr. and Mrs.
Average America find the going
tough. So it is with resolutions,
and perhaps the trouble lies in
making too many resolutions at
One resolution, however, is as
easy to give up as are ten. Per-
haps easier. With ten resolu-
tions, the average person is apt
to drift away from one resolu-
tion at a time. Thus, in the end,
at least some of the ten resolu-
tions may be kept.
Perhaps New Year resolu-
tions ought to be abolished in
favor of keeping one of Shake-
speare's sayings: "To Thine
Ownself Be True."
This means that we all ought
to know along what lines we
need ot make new resolutions
to better our understanding of
life and ourselves. Instinctively,
we all know when we are not
being true to ourselves.
Instead of making resolutions
to cover a hundred and one im-
perfections, just watch for that
instinctive feeling that tells you
when you're being false to

Mind is the great lover of all
things; human thought is the
process by which human ends
are ultimately answered.
By Daniel Webster

The cost per month for
attendance at the school is
$39.00, which includes board,
room and all fees. Approved for
G. I. training, the Opportunity
School has already served many
ex-servicemen and their fam-
ilies. For veterans, the only cost
is board and room, $30.00,
which can be paid from sub-
sistence allowance.
A unique service of the
Opportunity School is the nur-
sery school where student's
children may be enrolled.
Sponsored by the Columbia
Pilot Club, the nursery school
is well-equipped with qualified
teachers in charge, and here
children of pre-school age are
cared for while their parents
are attending class.

garding the school, write Miss

The members of the Cloth
Room Christmas Savings Club
are all ready to see Santa Claus.
During the past year the club
members saved approximately
two thousand dollars. On De-
cember 8, the members were
given back the money they de-
posited to help with their
Christmas shopping.
The club for next year has
already started, and members
hope to have an even larger
treasury in '48 than the one in
'47. Everyone in the Cloth
Room is invited to join.

Library Affords
Good Reading
After surveying the library
materials for Christmassy read-
ing for adults, the librarian
suggests the December issues of
current periodicals, stating
that they are just what one
needs to get into a jolly mood
for Christmas.
Many of these magazines can
be checked out for the holidays,
and it is hoped that the adults
who enjoy reading will avail
themselves of this opportunity.
Those who plan to entertain
during the Christmas season
will find a number of books and
periodicals giving helpful ideas
regarding menus, games, and
decorations--a good cook book
might even come in handy.
All of this material can be
found at the library, and the
adults of the community are
invited and urged to use it.

Many From Here

former Slater man and was
transferred to the central office
several months ago. Mr. Sutton
first became connected with
this Company in the roll of Pro-
duction Manager and Designer,
and in Greensboro is a member
of the staff of Mr. James Ly-
brand, Jr., who is head of the
Yarn Procurement Division.
In addition to these men, we
find in the Greensboro office
Frank A. Cook, who began his
career with the Slater Company
about ten years ago in the
capacity of payroll clerk. Later
Mr. Cook served as Industrial
Relations Manager of the Com-
pany until he was transferred
to the central office in 1946.
As Controller, we find W. T.
Stockton, who was formerly
employed at Slater in the Ac-
counting Department. Early in
1942, Mr. Stockton was trans-
ferred to the central office and
now holds the position of Con-
troller for the Carter group of
Serving as head of the Yarn
Procurement DIvision is James
Lybrand, Jr., who first became
connected with this organiza-
tion here in Slater. Mr. Ly-
brand is very pleasantly re-
membered by the residents of
Slater as a top-notch ball
player and as a zealous worker
in the Methodist Church here.
Another former Slaterite in
the central office is Furman
Pinson. Mr. Pinson is connected
with the Purchasing Depart-
ment, of which Guy Fortune is
the head.
As head of the Cost Depart-
ment in the central office is
another former Slaterite in the
person of Frank T. Roberts,
who formerly worked as Pro-
duction Manager here at Slater.
A former Slater man, who
has been transferred to the
New York offices of J. P.
Stevens & Company after
having worked in the Greens-
boro office for a number of
years, is Charles E. Baxter.
All of these men hold re-
sponsible positions, with many
of them headings their depart-
ments or divisions, and,
naturally, everyone here at Sla-
ter is very proud of these men.
As a training ground, Slater
seems to be second to none,
which speaks highly for local
officials, J. A. White, Plant
Manager, and his staff are to
be congratulated on the excell-
ent work they are doing in
building men to assume
responsible positions in the
central office.
