Laboratory Group Plays Santa Claus To Needy Family The Research and Quality Control laboratories dispensed with their usual Christmas party this year and played Santa Claus to a needy family in this area. Bearing loads of packages, gro ceries, clothing and toys for the children the entire laboratory personnel deliv ered the gifts in person late in the afternoon of December 23. The gifts from the Fieldcrest group represented the only Christmas cheer available to the family involved. The family had no Christmas last year. The farm family consists of the ailing father, the mother, daughters nine and six years old, and a little son three years old. The three-year-old boy is in pre carious health and recently underwent an expensive operation, adding to the family’s financial difficulties. The gifts included dolls and tea sets for the girls, an air gun and a red toy truck for the boy (the first such items he’d ever seen) and new clothing for the entire family. Money to apply on the hospital bill was enclosed in a Christmas card. The boxes of groceries were topped off with a fruit cake and candy and nuts. When unsetting the table, stack dishes orderly in place to be washed so that they will not have to be moved or re stacked before washing. FIELDCREST MILL WHISTLE [3] MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 1949
