Vol. 1-No. U Friday. September 14. 1945. IS YOUR OPINION? It has been suggested by some em- ployees that we shoTold take advan tage of some form of group health and life insurance, and if possible, hospitalization insurance. The health and life insurance would pay the employee a portion of his salary in case of sickness, starting with the eighth day of his illiness. In case of death, the face value of the policy would be paid to his bone— ficiaiy. The hospital insurance would pay the employee f3»00 per day for hospital room and in addition, cover extra laboratory tests and other services. The premium for such policies would be taken out of the weekly payroll. If you are in terested in this proposition, please contact Mr, Ponish. If a sufficient number of inquiries are made, we will be willing to investigate the matter further. Another matter that was brought to our attention is that of changing the pay day from weekly to bi-weekly basis. This would save the office a great deal of book-keeping, however, we would not want to change unless it is so desirea by all employees concerned. The only reason we bring this matter up is that one of the employees suggested it. PERSONALS Mr. R. G. Newell is up and about and paid us a short visit the be^ ginning of this vjeek.
