MESSAGE
fROM THE
PRESIDENT
TO MY FELLOW WORKERS:
Nalional Memorial Day comes
soon. Throughout the land people
will bow t’.'.eir heads in tribute to
those who have fallen in their
country's service, and in thanks
giving for the national heritage
which such sacrifices have pre
served.
This is the day when, in public
ceremonies, with floral memori
als on graves, and in private
family observances, the nation
outwaidly c.ives evidence of its
inner spirit of patriotism. And it
is well that we are so solemnly
reminded of our debt to those
who have passed in order that we
continue conscious of our obliga
tions in the future.
Today we inherit the power
and security for which coura
geous patriots have fought from
the revolutionary days of Lexing
ton to the battles of Korea. Thou
sands of them faced death
courageously, submitting their
destiny to a cause which they
regarded as more precious than
life itself. Memorial Day re-em-
phasizes our privilege in honor
ing their memory as we face our
own responsibilities for preserv
ing and nourishing the things for
which they made the supreme
sacrifice.
In ouc Anvil Brand organiza
tion frequent evidence arises that
such responsibility is not ignored.
And we have justification for
pride when one of our number
enters military service. In all,
there have been thirty-six from
our company who have joined in
the national defense, for actual
combat or training. We honor
them for their spirit of loyalty
to country, and willingness to ac
cept their obligation of citizen
ship.
It may be peace-time as others
enter service at present. Actual
war may be in the indefinite
future. Nonetheless as these

New Safety Inspectors Begin Duties
The new group of safety in- ^
spectors who will serve for the
next four months attended their
first safety meeting last week
when Aline Carter outlined for
them their duties.
Also Aline commended the re
tiring committee and observed
that obviously their work had
been done well as only five de
partments failed to achieve a
grade of 100 in the last inspec
tion. These included the Blue
and Red Teams at Independence,
Shipping, Sales Division Office,
Sherrod Cutting and Pattern.
The safety program was start
ed at Anvil Brand in 1951, Aline
recalled, and said that it is
through the efforts of the com
mittees which serve voluntarily
that the marked improvement in
A safety has been achieved in the
' plants.
The committees, she said, serve
as a clearing house for sugges
tions and improvements and that
the persons who serve on the
committee are selected by the
supervisors.
A central Safety Committee
which keynotes the program is
