110 employees of R. H. Macy & Company, the world’s largest store, were guests
of Marshall Field & Company, Manufacturing Division, on March 13th at the Hotel
New Yorker. Following dinner the entire group saw the motion picture, “The Crest
of Quality,” which shows how Fieldcrest blankets, sheets, towels, and bedspreads
are manufactured. This is the film you saw being made in our mills last fall and
which was shown last week in Leaksville, Spray, Draper and Fieldale.
During 1946 salespeople in 100 of America’s finest stores will be meeting in
groups like this to see how Marshall Field & Company people put quality into Field-
crest merchandise.
