A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Another year is about to draw to its end. It has
been a year which has brought many changes in our
country. We are all expected to devote our energy
and enthusiasm to help in our National Defense Pro
gram, so as to do our bit towards making our world
safe for democracy. I know all of you will fully enter
into the spirit of this far-reaching program which is
being developed by President Roosevelt and the Con
gress of the United States.
As far as the employees and all my friends in
Pisgah Forest are concerned, we have a lot to be
thankful for.
With great efforts, we have been successful in
just about finishing the new addition to our mill, which
will double our production capacity.
It was not an easy task to accomplish this, due to
the fact that so much material needed by us was also
required for defense purposes. However, cigarettes
—for which all of our departments are producing sup
plies—is considered by our government very essential
and, therefore, we have been given appropriate prior
ities by the government so that we can obtain our
necessary supplies. , ,
1 want to thank you and express my appreciation
to all of you for the help and loyalty which you have
shown me during the past year. It was a great com
fort to me and has helped me to make my task an eas
ier one. .
Only with continued cooperation, friendship and
confidence on your part in me,, and on my part in you,
can we expect to carry on our work successfully and
continuously.
You know by this time you can depend on me and
I assure you that, at all times, will 1 look upon your
problems as my own.
I sincerely trust all of you will enjoy a most happy
Holiday Season and that only health, prosperity and
good fortune is in store for you, for many years to
come. , , i-i. • *
May we continue to celebrate many more Christ
mases togetherl i e i
I do not want to let this Holiday Season go by
without hoping all of you will include in your prayers
that before long peace again will be restored m this
world so that all the strife and destruction will cease
forever Sincerely yours,
HARRY H. STRAUS,
President.

Employees’ Spirit of Cooper
ation Carries Drive “Over
The Top”
The final tabulation of the re
cent drive for funds to complete
the new Transylvania County Hos
pital reveals that employees of
Ecusta Paper Corporation, Cham
pagne Paper Corporation, Endless
Belt Corporation, and California
Central Fibre Corporation more
than reached their goal of $10,-
000.00.
This drive, backed by the spirit
and enthusiasm of 1600 employees,
surged toward the one hundred
percent mark within a week’s time.
It was astounding how quickly all
companies joined together for a
concentrated effort to raise the
necessary amount of money. No
credit is due any particular person
for such a rousing success because
in the end the figures prove that
ninety-three percent of all em
ployees participated equally in the
final hospital drive. Practically
everyone in our organization can
say, “We did it”. These figures
of the drive are presented to you
from the results of each company’s
contribution.
Ecusta Paper Corp. $ 8,229.83
Champagne Paper Corp. 1,546.99
Endless Belt Corp. 322.41
California Central Fibre
Corporation 67.00
Total Contributions $10,167.13
This amount, as promised by Mr.
Harry H. Straus, our President,
has been matched dollar for dollar
by all the corporations. These two
amounts combined gives us a grand
total of—
$20,334.26
