C., Monday, September 24, 1962 NO. 6 Flatt And Scruggs To Entertain 25-Yr. Club The Flatt and Scruggs Show, featur ing Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, has been engaged for entertainment at the 1962 meeting of the 25-Year Club. The program will be in the new auditorium at Morehead High School at 7:30 p. m. Saturday, November 17. The evening program replaces the former picnic-style meetings held in Morehead Stadium. In recent years, only about half of those eligible attended the picnics. The change in format was made to attract more of the 25-Year Club members and to permit wives and husbands of the members to attend. The club this year will be entertain ed by the number one country music outfit in the nation—Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys. The Flatt-Scruggs show is well- known in this area through their tele vision programs over Charmel 2 in Greensboro, and Channel 10, Roanoke.

Company Provides Flu Shots For Employees Free flu shots are being provided by the company again this year for all employees of Fieldcrest Mills. In the background is the grim warn ing that a major outbreak of dangerous Asian flu will hit the United States this fall and winter. Officials of the U. S. Public Health Service say that Americans should get flu shots, beginning this month, to avoid “serious consequences.” Asian flu is believed to have contrib uted to deaths of 90,000 Americans in its first two epidemic sweeps of the na tion in the winters of 1957-58 and 1959-60. Physicians have been alerted, public health programs have been outlined, and stocks of the special flu vaccine, containing a substantial potency against the A-2 variety of the disease, have been built up. The vaccine is for people of all ages. Health officials are urging especially that people over 45 and those with any physical condition take shots because the flu bug is apt to hit them harder. The Fieldcrest Medical Department began giving the shots September 10. Dr. J. A. Sanford, medical director, and Mrs. Jane Reynolds, Fieldcrest nurse, gave the first shots in all of the Leaksville-Spray-Draper mills dur ing that week.
