PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
- Industrial Workers
LAST AND FINAL APPEAL TO ALL EM
PLOYEES OF ECUSTA PAPER CORPORA
TION, CHAMPAGNE PAPER CORPORA
TION, ENDLESS BELT CORPORATION
All of us agree that a modern and up-to-date hospital is very
much needed in Brevard, Pisgah Forest and Transylvania
County. Such a hospital is under construction at the present
time in Brevard.
Sufficient funds have not yet been raised to complete the
building and furnish it with the necessary medical equipment
and furniture.
The people of Brevard have just completed, a drive and are
still raising funds. While this is going on, upon my request, all
those employed by Ecusta, Champagne and Endless^Belt have
not been approached, as again we want to make this a “com
pany” affair.
'Whatever you give this time, same as the last, Ecusta, Cham
pagne and Endless Belt Corporations AVILL MATCH DOLLiAR
FOR DOLLAR.
A plan has been worked out whereby our employees can con
tribute in small amounts over a period of time, which will make
it easy for them to do their share and, at the ssutne time, render
a very noble service to all the citizens of Transylvania County.
It is my hope and ambition that, without exception, each and
every employee of the companies, of which I have the honor to
be President, will donate at least one hour’s pay per week, for
a period of twelve weeks, to this fund. If this can be accomplish
ed, the employees of our various corporations, jointly, should
be able to accumulate an amount in the neighborhood of
$10,000^ which the corporations are willing to match, so that
from the three corporations we hope to be able to contribute to
this hospital under construction a total of not less than $20,000.
The benefits of a hospital will come to all of you. A hoyital
is needed in times of distress, and while I hope that none of you
will have to be patients in this hospital, it is necessary that the
hospital be ready for you when the time comes.
This does not only apply to those who live in Pisph Forest
and Brevard, but to all employees—no matter where their
homes happen to be—because in an emergency they will have
to be brought to a hospital where m^em sery.ce and attention
is immediately available. This you will find in e new ospi a
under construction.
We want to make this a whirl-wind campaign which ought
to be completed in a week’s time, and I hope, as stated ®
that all of you will, without exception, enter into the worK
which we have undertaken.
The buildings are well advanced in construction, and we want
to bring them under cover before the cold weather sets in. Con-
sf^nii>ntlv. we do not have much time to waste.
In advance, I thank all of you for your whole-hearted coop
eration in this noble enterprise.
Sincerely yours,
HARRY H. STRAUS, President.
The empolyees of the vari
ous industries in Transylvania
county will be greatly benefit-
ted by the new hospital which
is being erected. Modern hos
pital facilities will be available
at home and it will not be neces
sary to travel thirty or forty
miles for these facilities. All of
the employees and most of the
families 01 the employees of the
companies belong to the Hos
pital Saving Association and
have a form of insurance which
will cover ordinary hospital
bills. When the new hospital is
completed it will mean modem
hospital facilities will be avail
able for those who need hos
pitalization. Everyone will feel
much more secure if he knows
that he has hospitalization in
surance and that a modern,
well equipped hospital is avail
able within a few minutes.
Every employee should real
ize the benefit of the hospital
to them and their families and
contribute toward this worthy
cause.
BREVARD CITIZEN
DRIVE IS SUCCESS
During the past few months,
two teams of staunch Brevard
supporters, captained by Jerry
Jerome and Harry Sellers, have
received subscriptions totaling
$5,000. Several individuals
were known to have given as
much as $500.00. This group
was led by such men as Mr.
Frank D. Clement, Mr. Verne
Clement, Dr. C. L. Newland,
Mr. W. M. Schwarz and Mr.
Walter V. Landeck.
_ The subscription total was
given a great boost when the
old equipment was found to be
worth over $2,000.00 in trade-
in for new equipment.
Several organizations within
Brevard have obligated them
selves to raise money for fur
ther hospital equipment.
Mr. Jerome and Mr. Sellers
should be commended for their
excellent work.
