Vol. 1 - No. September 25, 1946 EDITORIAL If one lone Americaxi was put ashore in some strange land, the natives of that country would get their whole impress ion of 140,000,000 Americans from that one wandering stranger. Have you ever met a foreigner and immediately formed an opinion of all his country-men? I have. The same thing is just as true right here at Piedmont, We have often dis cussed the establishment of a Public Relations Department, but I like to think of Piedmont having a Public Re— , lations Department of 60 odd employees, and I would like to have every one of you think of yourselves as a member of that Department. The real impression that thousands of people will have of Piedmont will be the impression that they get from the people they knovj and meet who work at Piedmont• Everywhere you go you are giving SCME— ONE a picture of your Company.
