I did, and I shall quote here their impressions: “Due to the kindness and consideration of Mr. Harry H. Straus, President of the Ecusta Paper Company, all the Dryads (the older girls) and their counselors were permitted to go through the plant on Mon day morning. “We all left camp at ten o’clock, and at 10:30 started on our tour of the plant, under the guidance of Mr. Jack Alexand er. First we were told some of the details about the plant and its employees. There are 1,400 people working there under the most modern conditions, and this number will be in creased as time goes on. There few such plants in the United States, and the reason it (Continued on page 6) USO^UOTA DOUBLED During a recent drive for USO funds, Transylvania coun ty officials doubled the quota set aside for them. Ecusta Per sonnel contributed $258.30 and this amount was matched ^ by the Ecusta Paper Corporation. ECUSTA PRESIDENT SPEAKSTOFARMERS OF TRANSYIVANIA Following is the text of an address delivered by Mr. Harry H. Straus to the members of the Farmers Federation at their annual picnic in Brevard, on July 80: It is a real pleasure to be al lowed to meet with my farming friends of Transylvania Coun ty, and I want to express, at the beginning, my thanks to your energetic and able President, Mr. James McClure, for having invited me. This is the first time, since I came to Transylvania County about three years ago, that I have had the privilege of meet ing with you. Undoubtedly, I .have made the personal acquaintance of many of you present here today before, and I am also certain that many of your sons and daughters, relatives and friends are working for Ecusta Paper Corporation, which makes me very happy. I am not unfamiliar with farming communities. I have been in contact with farmers for the past seven years in var ious parts of the country, and it has always been my ambition to have the farmers’ interest at heart and to devote the en ergies of our entire organiza tion to bringing farm products in direct contact with industry. Ecusta Paper Corporation is a vivid illustration of how this can be accomplished. We are using for the manufacturing of our cigarette paper the produce of the farm—FLAX — which we are gathering from far away distances, namely Minne sota and California. I know you expect me to tell you something about our flax requirements, and, in the short period of time allotted to me, I shall endeavor to give you a bird’s eye view of the situation. No doubt it has crossed the minds of many of you as to why we go to far off districts to ob tain our supplies of flax fibre when there are so many idle (Continued on paf?o 4) ReSt^ vvimams, Recreation Director, will act in the of librarian and will be on P M A.
