Main street An unusually at
jptive home owned by Mr. and
E. W. Lawrence was buut in
' the summer, the two front rooms of
which are used for an art and
craft shop operated by Mr. and
Mrs. Lawrence. A native of Eng
land, Mr. Lawrence came here for
a short visit several years ago and
liked it so much that he decided to
make a permanent home here.
Hardin's Place, an Esso Station
and Tea Room, on Highway Nos.
19-23, one block from the Waynes
ville Country Club, was also built
and opened up last summer. It is
owned by W. Lt Hardin, Jr.
A large addition is being built
to the Waynesville Country Club.
This addition, when completed, will
give one-third more rooms. The
club is owned and operated by Mr.

Dr. R. Stuart Roberson remodel

offices to Dr, G. M. Davis, has se
cured modern equipment and had
a modern heatinsr unit installed.
His two story apartment which
has been under construction for

and modernizing their plants. The
most recent improvement was the
installation of a new and up-to-date
dry kiln by the Unagusta Man
ufacturing Company. R. L. Pre
vost, president of the company,
stated that the new kiln turns out
better seasoned lumber for furni
ture in less than half of the time
required by the old one. i
During the past year the Caro
ina Power and Light Corapny re
built and repaired the entire town
where needed, "Old poles were re
placed with new creosote .ones and
new wiring was also used.
Damages from the high waters
of last summer have been repaired
and the Town of Hazelwood, the
A. C. Lawrence Leather Company
and the Unagusta Manufacturing
Company had Richland Creek and
Camp Branch dredged as a safe
guard against high waters.
The hard surfacing of streets,
a W. P. A. project, which was be
gun about three years ago and
discontinued, was completed in Au
gust Almost three miles of streets
within the town limits were hard'
surfaced. Highway Nos. 19-23,
where it borders the South side
of Hazelwood was refinished last
Another W. P. A. project which
was carried on in the spring and
summer was the renovation of the
old unit of the Hazelwood school.
This project was supposed, ac
cording to school officials, to give
Hazelwood school a surplus of
class rooms that would take care
of additional enrollment for many
years, but with the coming of two
new industries, a branch plant of
the Dayton Rubber Company and
shoe manufacturing plant, it
is believed that all these school fa
cilities will soon be in use.
Work on the rubber plant and
shoe plant is scheduled to start

DOES FORD PAY GOOD WAGES?
Here are some facts about Ford Labor.
During the year ended November 30th,
1940, the Ford Payroll throughout the
United States averaged 113,628 hourly
wage earners, not including office em
ployes, students, or executives. They were
paid $185,105,639.12. On this basis, the
average annual wage was $1,629.05.
According to the latest available govern
ment figures, the annual average wage of
all workers in employment covered by
old age insurance law was $841.00.
If the 45,000,000 workers of this country
received the same average wage as Ford
employes, they would have had additional
wages of more than $35,000,000,000, thus
increasing the national income about
50. Think what such an increase would
mean to the workers of this country and
to the American farmer, whose prices are
based on the national income.
I Wage scales in the Ford Rouge plants are
divided into three classifications:
I Minimum hiring wage . 75c per hour
Minimum hiring wage . 80c per hour
Minimum hiring wage , 90c per hour
Higher wages are in consideration of
I r, ... a .
I aDiiity ana years ot service.
Minimum wage scales for unskilled labor
I at the Rouge plant are the highest in the
I industry. Top wages for skilled labor
compare favorably with, or are higher
I than, wages in other automobile plants.
Now some facts on Ford labor conditions:
Not only are sanitation and other health
"conditions the best in the industry, but
Ford also leads in safety devices for the
protection of employes. Proof of
tnis is found in the following com
parison of compensation insurance costs:
,r. The national average rate in automotive
manufacturing plants as computed by the
National Association of Underwriters is
in excess of $1,50 premium on each $100
payroll. The Ford cost of workmen's
compensation is less than 50c
This indicates that the Chance of injury
in a Ford plant is much less than in the
average automobile plant.
The Ford Motor Company has no age
limit for labor, and in fact deliberately
attempts to keep older workers working.
The average age of Ford workers at the
Rouge and nearby plants is 38.7.
A recent check-up shows that nearly one
half the workers at these Ford plants were
40 or over, falling into these age groups:
25,819 between 40 and 50
14,731 between 50 and 60
3377 between 60 and 70
417 between 70 and 80
12 between 80 and 90
In addition to the so-called regular em
ployes, the Ford Motor Company has
hired, and now has on the payroll, at the
same regular hourly wage, thousands of
workers who are blind, crippled or other
wise incapacitated for normal productive
work. They are not selected for their
ability to build cars or to maintain the
plane They are on the payroll because of
Henry Ford's belief that the responsibility
of a large company to labor goes be
yond the point at which the unfortunate
worker can no longer produce profitably.
The above are facts. They are' open to
anyone who really wants to deal in facts.
Anyone who wants to get a job . . bay a
car . . . or place a national defense con
tract on the basis of fair labor treat
ment must place Ford at the top
of his eligible list
