    The Government Payroll
The Nashville (Tenn.) Banner points out that one out of every
seven persons employed works for a government agency either at the
federal, state, or local level. This figure is for civilian workers only
and does not include those in the armed services.
It costs about $33 billion to support the payrolls covering the eight
million government workers, 2.3 million orf which are on federal jobs
and the remainder on state and local payrolls.
The Tax Foundation estimates that by 1970 (less than a decade
away and before the retirement of most of us) there will be 10 million
persons on government payrolls.
It now costs each family in the nation $610 each year to maintain
this army of workers. And, if the estimate for 1970 proves correct, it
will cost nearly $800 per family. Compare this with no longer aga than
1950 when it cost each family only $340 to meet these payrolls.
Big government requires big payrolls — and big taxes!
Don^t ^Leave It For the Sweeper^
“Leave it for the sweeper” used to be a pretty snappy comeback
when someone dropped a dollar bill — but that’s about all you should
consider leaving for the sweeper.
Slips and falls — often caused by various objects, water and
grease dropped on floors and stairs — are the nation’s second largest
cause of work injuries, according to the National Safety Council.
If you drop or spill something, pick it up or wipe it up immediately.
Leaving it for the sweeper may result in injury to a fellow employe.
New Names Shown
On Towel Quality List
A number of new names appear on the
Towel Mill’s list of top quality weavers
and loomfixers, indicating continuing
keen competition for the quality titles.
In order to encourage quality and
efficiency in the weave room, the mill
gives recognition each week to the
weavers and fixers with the best per
formance records. Names of leading op
erators are posted on the weave room
bulletin board and are printed in The
Mill Whistle.
The “Weavers of the Week” are those
with the lowest per cent of seconds
with respect to the standards for the
various loom groups. The “top” fixers
are determined through a combination
of low seconds and high loom efficiency
on their respective sections.
Names of the leading weavers and
fixers are shown below for the most
recent periods of record.
