MY IMPRESSSION OF
You may be interested to
learn my personal viewpoint
about becoming a member on
a chain in life.
It is for the first time that I
enter a large plant of any kind.
I see many faces, hear differ
ent noises—don’t know where
to look until I make myself
clear that I belong in here too
now. Soon my forelady makes
me acquainted with all the
rules and regulations—then
the work I have to do is ex
plained to me very particular
ly. I have my own working
space as all the other gtirls
have their own spaces. Every
body seems to be happy and
there is a quiet attitude amidst
all the noise. Everyone does
his share and all for the same
purpose ... (I leave it to you).
Each one has a certain reason,
of course, only your own heart
knows. I like my work—even
if it is a little different from
doing houserold chores.
The same movement with
your hands all day long. But
everybody tries to do the best
he can. All hands busy—sil
ence—noise—work! And you
still have time to make your
own psychological studies. I
do not know you by name, I do
know some of your work—but
I do not know your faces to
that work. I do hope to know
you later on.
We improve our work
little by little—day by day, for
we all have the same zest—^to
work for completion in our
daily duty—as in person and
in life itself and in the same
time there grows thoughts of
sincerest appreciation in our
hearts: to be free to choose our
own destiny — and heartfelt
thanks to the man who gives
us employment in such a mod
ern, fine, sanitary institution,
where everyone does his share.
After the day is over we go
home and are expected loving
ly by our dear ones. Tomorrow
starts another day on the chain
in life. God bless Ainerica for

The Morning After
Overheard in Mr. Bennett’s Office:
Mr. Walter Ashworth of Ecusta and Mr. Karl Straus of
world fame, were overheard by Mr. Ray Cooke thusly:
“Look,” cried Mr. Ashworth as he brushed the
sleeve of his coat, ‘Tve got dragons all over me!!!”
Mr. Karl Straus, backing away hysterically, screamed
“Help! You don’t have to brush them off on me!”—
Mr. Cooke fainted.
Dr. Jos. J. Jerke, Sr., Ecusta Lab. expert, is spending the
winter off the coast of California at his resort home “Alcatraz.”
He left Brevard due to the current cold wave and also to some
question over his signature on a piece of paper, commonly
called a check.
They are advertising Mr. L. B. Owen’s wrecked Chevy as
One 1941 Chevy—slightly use.
Best Fraud of Month
When a certain Third Hand on L. B. Owen’s shift heard
they were going to take Mr. Rhodes a pint of Four Roses
because he had the Flu, he walked all the way from Ecusta to
Brevard without hat, coat, or shoes—so he could get sick—
he got sick (sober).
Poem of the Month
(Sing to tune of “Ole Black Joe” — if you can)
Shives — Shives — forks and knives
The best ole column ever scribed
We hope you like it cause it likes you
Poop poop a dope — Rah, Rah Shives.
(Clever — aint it?)

An Almost Original Portrait of an Executive
An executive is a man who has conferences, sends cryptic
telegrams, gets things done on the telephone, gives dictation,
and makes decisions. When he can’t make up his mind about
an important decision he calls in his secretary, asks her what
she thinks, and does what she suggets. ^ This is not known as
“letting his secretary make up his mind,” however; this is
known as “getting the woman’s angle.” For letting the execu
tive “get the woman’s angle,” a secretary is paid twenty-five
dollars a week. He also hires and fires. When he fires some
one, he begins by saying “Dick, we’ve all enjoyed working with
you, but ...” In other words, an executive “executes.” An
executive also has “helluvadays” which makes him feel im
portant. He is also known as the “HOLY TERROR,” which is
good for his ego, Jbut his aim is to be known as the “OLD MAN.”
Summed up: an executive is a man who can—-when he
needs to — get things done without doing anything.
