We are Proud of This
We have a right to be proud of this
picture. Six employees who have
worked over 42 years without a lost
time accident! It is a remarkable
record, made by remarkable people.
Not only that but we have 33 more who
have worked 20 to 36 years without
lost time accidents; 37 who have work
ed 10 to 20 years safely. Nor is this
by any means a complete list, as it is
based solely on coupons turned in from
The Mill Whistle of February 1st.
In the picture above are shown five
of those six remarkable people. We
regret that Mr. Hurley Vestal, who has
a record of 42 years without lost time
accident, was unable to be present due
to serious illness in his family. Mr.
Vestal’s record is all the more impres
sive since he is almost deaf and has
been that way since he was four years
old. Top row; D. C. Yarborough, Bed
spread, 42 years; Mrs. Mollie Mitchell,'
Sheeting Mill, 47 years; Glenn Taylor,
Sheeting Mill, 44 years. Bottom row:
Reeves Cooper, Finishing Mill, 42 years,
and P. F. Grogan, Shop, 45 years. The
number of years worked by these peo
ple are not necessarily for Marshall,
Field & Co.
Following is a list of those who have
worked more than 20 years without
lost time accidents. This list, unfor
tunately, may not be complete as we
believe there are many others in this
group who did not send in the coupon
printed in The Mill Whistle.

Not Always Easy.
To begin over.
To admit error.
To take advice.
To be unselfish.
To keep on trying.
To be considerate,
To think and then act.
To profit by mistakes.
To forgive and forget.
To shoulder a deserved blame.
BUT IT ALWAYS PAYS.
“Right Off the Floor
Visitor In Tri-City
A lot of our readers will corner us
next week and demand to know “why
in this-and-that the New York letter
ain’t in the paper this time?
This column, written by Stanley
Kramer, is one of the best liked fea
tures 'in The Mill Whistle. Readers all
like Mr. Kramer’s breezy style and his
particular brand of wit. Our only ex
cuse is that we have not received the
letter, even though it was mailed at
New York on February 19th. Maybe
the censor got it, or perhap-s there was
a military secret hidden between the
lines. Anyway, it ain’t.
Even though we do not have Mr.
Kramer’s column we do have Mr.
Kramer. That gentleman is now iW
town, and no doubt a lot of you will
have the pleasure of meeting him, or at
least seeing a solemn looking gent
wearing specs—which we have been
told i-3 him.
It’s nice to have you around, Mr.
Kramer, but please don’t—in the fu
ture—substitute your presence for your
column. Anyway, we all hope you en
joy your stay with us.

Save Your Pay Check Stub
Although the Company maintains a
record of every employe’s income and
the various deductions (both volun
tary and those required by law), you
are advised to save each pay check
stub with its receipt for Social Security
and tax payments. Your file of pay
check stubs will show you at once, for
example, how much victory tax you
have paid. However, Marshall Field
& Co. will furnish each employe with
Form V2 at the end of each year, or at
the termination of employment. This
form shows the employe’s total income
for the calendar year and the total
amount of victory tax withheld during
the same period. It also shows the
name of the employe, Social Security
number, marital status, and combines
the old form (1099), which you have
received in your pay check stub last
week, with the’ new victory tax re
ceipt form. — (Reprinted from Field
