Grand Prize Awarded In Slogan Contest
Catherine Amburn, of the Sheeting
Mill, won the grand prize of $25.00 in
the company-wide safety slogan contest.
Mrs. Ambum is shown above as the
presentation was made by Robert A.
Harris, vice president of manufacturing.
Looking on are Dillard Powell (left),
assistant superintendent of the Sheeting
Mill, and R. E. New, foreman of the
Sheeting Mill Carding and Spirming.
The prize-winning slogan suggested
by Mrs. Ambum was “Be alert. Be
Aware. Practice Safety Everywhere”.
The top three winning slogans in each
mill were pooled for posting on mill
bulletin boards. Follow-up prizes are
being awarded in each mill.
The superintendent or someone desig
nated by him contacts employees at
random throughout the mill and asks
them to quote the safety slogan current
ly posted on the bulletin board. If the
employee can quote the slogan correctly,
he receives a prize of 50c.
