UNIQUE PUBLICATIQM IS PUT OUT BY MILL
One of the finest pixblications that we have seen recently for men
in the service is "Hot off the Hoover Rail," published by employees
of the Cleveland Mill & Power Company at Lavmdale, Cleveland County.
It comes out once a month and is sent to all former employees vfho
are nov/ preparing to fight or are fighting for their country.
The name of the publication is rather unique. During the administration
of Presj-dent Hoover, a lot of people v/erc out of v/ork or worked only
part time, During r21 hours of the day a good mrxiy of them would
gather at a central meeting place to loaf and gossip. In a spirit of
derision, the railing on which they sat was knom as "The Hoover Rail."
And that's how come the nano of the monthly news bulletin that is now
It*s a grand idea, and v/e hope that more manufacturing plants will
tnke it up. So far, we have received a number of similar publications
th at are beijig sent- out by some of the schools and civic organizations.
All of them are good, but there’s a snap riid dash about the "Hoover
Rail" which made us read practically all of it, despite the fact that
we are unacquainted with the folks who are mentioned in it. We can
easily imagine the fihrill that boys in canp or overseas get when they
receive their copy of the publication. They surely must get a great
kick out of reading it.
