f MILL WHISTLE Improvements Made In Arrangements At Central Warehouse A series of improvements involving relocation of several departments at the Central Warehouse has been sub stantially completed. The purpose of the changes was to obtain a better line up of operations permitting the goods to flow in a straight line through the various warehousing processes. In ad dition to relocating the departments, there was a general rearrangement of the various operations within the units. The Blanket Packing Department was moved from the second to the third floor of Central Warehouse and placed in line with the Blanket Open Stock Storage. Operations within the Blanket Packing Department were rearranged for greater convenience. The Print Shop was moved from the second floor of the Warehouse to the third floor of the Finishing Mill. Ticket ing operations were consolidated with the Print Shop. This places the printing and ticketing in the proper sequence of operations. Under the new arrangement, blank ets from the Folding Department go up a conveyor to the third floor and remain on tne same floor level through all the packing processes until they are ready for carton storage. When pack ing operations are completed, the car tons go to the fifth floor of the old Warehouse across the railway tracks.
