THE THIRD ANNUAL .1. E. TRAINER AWARD went this
yeai- to James W. Cooper for his hooked rug exhibit at the
Hobby Show. Mr. Cooper, the father of Senior Time Study Engineer
J. Cooper^ojicc worked for The Firestone Tire & Rubber, Company
in the research department. More recently, and until his retirement,
he was a machinery development specialist for the Saco Lowell
Machinery Company. He is shown above receiving the J. E. Trainer
Loving Cup from Recreation Director Ralph Johnson.
FIRST PLACE in the antique furniture classification went to
Mrs. Ramona Haney, wife of Twister Tender J. A. Haney.
EDITH LEWIS’ painting took first place in the oil paintings
classification. Miss Lewis, who was crowned Miss Firestone for
1951, has been painting less than a year; but, as the portion of her
exhibit above shows, she has already produced work that would do
credit to a professional painter.
THIS is the J. W. Cooper exhibit that won for Mr. Cooper the
J. E. Trainer Award. These hooked rugs are made from virgin wool
tops valued at five dollars a pound. The rug designs from left to
right are: Hodge Podge, Moslem Prayer Rug, Early American, and

Short Cut Accepted
THE Textile World magazine
has informed Senior Time Study
Engineer J. M. Cooper that his
short cut method of determining
the required Lwist ^ears on roving,
spinning, and twister frames has
been accepted by that magazine’s
“kinks” department. As a result
Mr. Cooper will receive five dollars
and will have a chance to win addi
tional cash awards in their best
kink of the month and year compe
Mr. Cooper’s short cut involves
only one setting of a slide rule
when the counts and twist multiph'
er are known. “With this single
setting”, says Mr. Cooper, “the ve-
quired twist gear with any twist
constant may be found. Once yo^
have this setting, based on the
known count and twist multiplied'
information, the number of teeth
needed for the twist gear is rea^
directly from the C scale.”
