I Marshall Field & Co. First!
No use smiling, sister, for not even
your most dazzling smile will get you
past the gates guarded by these men
unless the smile is accompanied by your
mill identification card.
In line with other firms producing
goods for Uncle Sam, Marshall Field
& Co. have hand-picked armed guards
at all mill gates to see that only em
ployees enter the plants. Employees
are furnished with identification card
on which appear their name and pic
ture. Without these cards it is hope
less to try to get past the armed guards.
Immediately after this picture was
made the guards gathered at the old
employment office to hear a talk on
preparedness by Lt. Col. France, of
All the guards carry the rank of mil
itary civihan police and have been

Spray Woolen Gets
We are proud, and a little bit envi
ous, of the employees at Spray Woolen
who are destined to be the first of the
North Carolina group of Marshall
Field mills - to win the highly coveted
Treasury Flag. Ninety per cent of the
employees must be buying War Bonds
in order to win the flag and it will be
interesting to see which of our tnills
will be next to win this prized flag.
Pictures, with an account of the flag
raising ceremonies, will appear in The
Mill Whistle at an early date.

To Service Men
The Whistle is in receipt of a nice
letter from H. W. Whitcomb, formerly
with the Manufacturing Division, and
now with the Chicago office. “Whit”,
as he is known to many of us here,
“I have been very much interested
in reading the copies of ‘The Mill Whis- ‘ ,
tie’ which have been sent to me. Both '
Mrs. Whitcomb and I have been very
much interested in references to em
ployes whom we know in the Manu
facturing Division. We got a particu
lar kick out of pictures of several
Draper boys who formerly were cad
dies at the Meadow Greens Country
club, looking very grown-up and heroic
in their service uniforms.
“The thought occurred to me that
some of the former employes of the
Manufacturing Division may be sta
tioned in or around Chicago at various
times in some of our large army or
naval training stations. If so, and if
any of them are ever in the city dur
ing store hours, I would' like very
much to see them and will offer any
service which I can to make their visit
pleasant and more interesting. My of
fice is located on the tenth floor. Mid
dle Wabash, telephone extension 2655.”
