I am delighted to report the whole-hearted support which has been given to this worthy cause. All the figures are not as yet available, but out of our 1,626 employees, 1,475 (or 92%) have so far contributed, which is a very gratifying result. The final figures will be brought to your attention as soon as they are computed, but we estimate that, they will amount to the sizeable sum of $10,000 collected from you. As promised you before, it affords me great pleasure to match each and every dollar which you gave, with one of ours. I know that all of you will feel more comfortable in knowing that we are going to have a modem hospital in Brevard, and, as promised you before, I will personally take an interest in its management and. see that it will always be all that, can be ex pected. Again I say, “Thank You.” Sincerely yours, HARRY H. STRAUS, President. SUPERINTENDENTS ARE CUESTS OF ECUSTA RAYMOND BENNETT ELECTED SECOND VICE PRESIDENT On October 24th and 25th Ecusta Paper Corporation and Champion Paper and Fibre Corporation were hosts to the Southeastern Convention of Pulp and Paper Mill Superintend ents. The headquarters for the convention was Grove Park Inn where all business sessions were held. On Friday, the 24th, the delegates to the convention visited Ecusta Paper Corporation and were conducted on a tour through the mill. They were divided into groups of ten and each group had a guide who con ducted the tour. The tour began by an inspection of the Filter Plant, Turbine and Boiler Room. The visitors were then taken to the warehouses where a large quantity of flax is stored and where Mr. L. F. Dixon answered many questions in regard to our raw materials. The groups then proceeded through the vari ous departments of the mill watching the process by which cigarette paper is manufactured. After the tour of the mill was completed the delegates were guests of Ecusta Paper Corporation at a dinner in the new cafeteria where they were entertained with pictures showing the growing of flax. The guests were then taken to the Brevard County Club where they witnessed an exhibition of square dancing by Speedy Jones and his Little River square dance ^^^On Saturday after the business meetings, the convention was brought to a close with a banquet and a dance in the ballroom of the Grove Park Inn.

Below are some of the answers to this suggestion: 1. Our Cafeteria has a ca- nacity for 380 persons. 2. Our Filter Plant has 11 filter beds. It is the largest Filter Plant in the South, and could supply a city of 150,000 inhabitants by its daily capa city of 25,000,000 gallons. 3. Our reservoir pumps can pump on an average of 19,250 gallons per minute. 4. The flat top reservoir at our plant has a capacity of 800.000 gallons, while the dome top reservoirs have a 1,- 500.000 gallon capacity. The dome-style reservoirs are the largest of their type in existence.

The two new boilers have a normal capacity of 41,- 500 lbs. of steam per hour each and the two old ones 27,500 lbs. each. 6. The two top silos at the one end of the boiler are for coal and the lower one is for ashes. r I-1.-stack is 225 feet high, 10 feet in diameter at the top, and 19 feet at the bot tom. a coal storage 01 lo,000 tons; our maximum daily use will average 160 tons. 1 warehouse holds J>400 tons of flax. Flax comes rrom Minnesota and California. We use 30,000 tons of flax per year. REAL AMERICANISM One country—the best on the face of the earth; One people—and true, by adoption or birth; One language—unspoken by tyrant or slave; One banner—the Flag of the tree and the brave. From ocean to ocean, from valley to crag; One country—one people— one language—one Flag. Those who expect too much of their friendships have few friends. ^^yes reaay lor ^iss Justine Williams, Women’s ■^creation Director, will act in the ^Pacity of librarian and will be on «and from 8:45 A.
