Slater Goes Off
Government Goods

The Slater Manufacturing
Co., Inc. has recently gone off
of Government goods entirely,
and its entire output is going
to the civilian market. This
may come as a surprise to some
of the employees of the com-
pany because a number of
fabrics are still being made
which formerly went to fill
Government contracts.

This company will continue
to put into its product the high
skill and workmanship for the
civilian market as when it was
making goods for the armed
forces during the war.


Mrs. Margaret Link has a
good variety of strawberry
plants for sale. If you are in-
terested, you may contact her
at her home in Marietta or in
the Cloth Room.
