isn't a ball game or practice.
Outstanding Safety Record
Eddinger's efforts in promoting
safety are evident in the record that
his department has worked more hours
than any other department of Adams-
Millis without a lost-time accident.
Since September 3, 1957, the Pairing
Department has worked 1, 156, 128
hours without time lost due to injury
on the job. Asked how he accounts for
the splendid safety record, he said,
"We constantly keep looking for any
thing that might constitute a hazard.
Our pairers have become conscious
of keeping our department in order.
We are proud of our record. "
