All Methodist churches in the

Commenting on the fact that in

after the Resurrection, celebrated
the birthday of the Christian
Church, Bishop Purcell called for
a repetition of Pentecost in the
life of the modern church. The

Using as a texr passage from
Acts 2:1-8. the speaker related the
Bible story of how the Apostles
were "all with one accord in one
place," and how "they were all
filled with the Holy Ghost."
"A common danger," he said,
"had drawn them together and they
were then held together by a deep
sense of kinship. A common ex
perience made them love one
another; they had all seen the risen
Lord; a common testimony made
them one family; their witness was
the resurrection.
"The church of this modern
day." he continued, "must have
something of this sense of unity
which always follows great dan

of Jesus Christ must realize its

We must set about realizing the

not continue in this world.
"Pentecost today for Christians
not only means a new spirit of
unity but it means a new spirit of
power. The promise of Jesus to
His disciples, 'Ye shall receive
power' was fulfilled on the day
of Pentecost and the record shows
that they received power to per
form many mighty acts. Pentecost

Milk Prices

Producers Will

Hundred More

New milk prices went into effect
here Saturday morning, as OPA
granted a nation-wide price hike
on dairy prices.
Sweet milk prices advanced one
cent a quart, half-pint bottles in
creased a quarter of a cent.
Quarts of cream are now four
cents higher, and pint bottles in
creased two cents. The half-pint went up one cent.
Buttermilk advanced two cents
per quart, and an eighth of a cent
on the half-pint bottles. Choco
late milk went up a half cent a

1 1 Acres Purchased
For New Plant Site;
Need Housing For
Technicians In Plant
"We would enlarge our plants
and add on many additional em
ployees if the local housing situa
tion would permit us to bring in
the technicians we would need."
I Leo Weill, president of the Wellco
I Shoe Corporation told The Moun
taineer this week, following an ad
dress Friday before the Rotary
Club, in which he pointed out the
steady growth of his firm in Way
nesville. "Due to the lack of adequate?
housing, we cannot bring in the
technicians we would need if we
would expand at this time. In fact,
we are having difficulties getting
living quarters for many key men
already here," Mr. Weill explained.
The firm recently purchased the
former Erkraft building on Georgia
Avenue, in Hazelwood, and have
bought 1 1 acres across the highway
rom the Dayton Rubber Manufac
turing plant in Hazelwood, as a
site for their proposed new plant.
In his address before the Rotary
Club last Friday, Mr. Weill said
that 90 per cent of the 296 em
ployees are women.
The firm began operations here
in March, 1911 with 16 people, and
a payroll of $300 weekly. In Sep
tember of the same year the plai;t
was employing 120 people and mak
ing 1,500 pairs of shoes a day, with
a weekly payroll of $1,800.
"Today there are 296 people em
ployed, making an average of 5,
500 pairs of shoes daily, and a
weekly payroll of $11,000," Mr.
Weill said.
"I am sure that with our future
plans, in a few short years from
now, our present figures of pro
duction will be doubled to the bene
fit of this entire section," Mr. Weill
Mr. Weill traced the history of
shoe manufacturing, and pointed
out the increased national produc
tion of shoes, showing that in 1902
the average person bought 2 93
pairs per year, and in 1940 this
figure had increased to 3.06 pairs
per year. The present rate of pro
duction will exceed tlie 1940 level,
speaker said, and every indication
is that 500 million pairs of shoes
and slippers will be made in this
country in 1946.
Wellco Shoes are made on hot
electrical units, and are finished
within one hour after they are
started in the cutting room. Dur
ing the war the firm produced
about two million pairs of hospital
slippers, in addition to a large
volume of leggings.
