, LET’S DANCE
During the past few weeks the sug
gestion has come to us that there be
dances held in the cafeteria. This sug
gestion, as are all suggestions, have
been seriously considered and the
Recreation Department is happy to
announce that it will be glad to co
operate with any group or department
that wishes to have a dance.
Since the cafeteria can accommo
date only a limited number, it is im
possible to have a dance for all Ecusta
employees at one time, therefore, it
is suggested that the dances be held
by different departments on separate
occasions. In many cases it might re
quire more than one dance to accom
modate all employees in a depart
Now that the door is open for such
entertainment, it is recommended by
the Recreation Department that each
department start their dance plans
as soon as they wish. The Recreation
Department is prepared to work with
each department in helping make ar
rangements for such occasions.
When you reach the end of the
cafeteria line you will find there a
“Wishing Well”, placed there for the
purpose of building a fund in the
drive against Infantile Paralysis.
Every donation will be gratefully r«-
ceived and even your smallest gift
will be greatly appreciated.

Miss Mary Louise Williams, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Williams, of

Clayton Morris, son of Mr. and Mrs.
C. C. Morris, of Brevard, on Christmas
day, December 25, in Greenville, S.
The bride was attired in a soldier
blue suit with brown accessories.
Mr. Morris is employed by the
Ecusta Paper corporation. Mrs. Morris
is employed at the first aid depart
ment of Ecusta.
Mr. and Mrs. Morris are making
their home in Brevard.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Nelson attend

It is surprising the number of pe°'
pie who feel that Safety is a secondary
part of their job, a problem to
taken into consideration after, in their
opinion, the weightier matters, such
as production, quality and cost, ha 'C
been taken care of.
However, Safety is so much a
of production, cost and quality
to separate it from them, to fail to
appreciate the close relationship,
to treat Safety as secondary, is to
once affect the others adversely, caus
ing production to decrease, costs
increase, and quality to be lowere«-
Whereas, to give Safety its rightfii
place on our jobs is to immediate^
improve our prospects of accomplish'
ing all the other desirable goals.
Therefore, let’s all put Safety
and reap the many benefifts we haV'-
so long been missing.
Ecusta Receives Nevrs
From Ralph Waldrop
Appreciates Courtesies Shovr**
Him Since Leaving Us
Dec. 15, 1941
The new library, having functioned
for only one month, has made great
strides. To date the library has cir
culated over 500 books and as each
day goes by, the number of readers
is'increased. The Recreation Depart
ment feels however, that the librai^
will not be a complete success until
all employees become familiar with
it and find it of value to them. We
cannot over-emphasize the fact that
the new Ecusta Library is your prop
erty and the material placed therein
is available for but one purpose, that
of serving your reading desires. We
are proud of our selection but hope
to make the library service of still
greater benefit to you through your
suggestions. Either drop a letter in the
suggestion box or come in and see
the librarian in person.

DOING OUR PART
As we stand today with our backs to Christmas and our
faces toward the New Year we are confronted with the fact
that 1942 finds us no longer a peaceful nation and we wonder
what the coming months have in store for us.
To begin with we realize fully that our country faces a
stupendous task — a task which each liberty loving American
must help perform by finding his place in that great machine
which is to restore peace and happiness to a war-torn and ha
We may we^ll ask ourselves that all important question,
how can I best serve my country? Again I would say that we
should each strive to find the place for which we are best fitted.
Some from among us have already taken their places “with the
colors”. Others will be leaving soon to enter various branches
of the military service. To these we give our assurance that we
will do our utmost to stand behind them in whatever way we
can be of the greatest service, and if necessary, I am positive
that there is not one of us who would not gladly stand shoulder
to shoulder with these men rather than have “Old Glory’’ re
placed by the flag of “The Land of the Rising Sun”, or the
“Swastika” of Hitler’s forces. Let us all try to keep cool heads,
avoid hasty decisions, and think deeply and seriously in regard
to the best way to serve our country in this great crisis. Man
power is only one of our many urgent needs. Our armed forces
must be supplied with all the necessities for winning this war,
which means that our factories must produce as never before. If
we are a part of this great industrial branch of service, let us
resolve to do our highest type of work, not only as a part of a
corporation but also because we are serving our country as well
by doing our part to help preserve our way of life, (the Ameri
can way), for ourselves and our posterity; which means that
this blessed land of liberty shall be freed from the oppression
of dictatorship and the “Stars and Stripes” shall float aloft for
ever “o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave”.

Dear Mr. Wells: , ^
For some time I have been thin^f ^
1 would get around to writing, } ^
have more or less put it off until
was sent up here with the vieW '
mind that I would more or less ^
here for some time.
All of my life I have heard ®
“Sunny Tennessee” but some one
been mistaken, for it has been
and mud since I have been here-
can’t very well say that I am
fond of the place, but under the
cumstances that have sent me y
like it very well and maybe the
I am here the more I will like
However, no where will I find any
of these United States as well to
fancy as Transylvania county in
ern N. C.
This camp is still under consti^^j
tion. There will probably be sev®
thousand men here when all of ^ ^
units have moved in. My principal ^
will be Chemical Warfare prop®^ " ®
Officer. I will have other dutie? ^
signed but can’t give any detail ^
to what they will be. However,
the war has broken out I am
or less expecting to be ordered
with troops. So that is somethin^
look forward to.
I trust that everything is
along fine at Ecusta. I certainly j
being around there. The friends ^
were made there and their loya^ ^
something worth fighting for
can’t be found just anywhere. jy
the courtesies shown me are de^P'
Give everyone my regards and ^
forget to send me a copy of the s.
