who Is ^The Company^?
“Fieldcrest just came aut with a new product.
“Fieldcrest is going to build a new plant.
“Fieldcrest is going to do this . . . and do that”.
Many people talk about Fieldcrest.
But who or what is this thing called “Fieldcrest” or “the Company”?
• Is it a building?
No. Buildings can do nothing by and of themselves. They need men

• Is it you?
You’re mighty important. You’re the one who operates the machines,
does the maintenance work, sells the products, carries on research,
loads the trucks and types the letters. But you alone couldn’t make a
single yard of cloth without your fellow workers, the supervisors, and
the tools furnished by the sharehalders.
Take away any one of the above and production would come to a
