fj - ' From where I sit... Joe Marsh
Industry Looks at
Our Town
Muto jroo read how t (rroup of
InduRtrUl experts hive decided that
the small town Is the place for in
dnntry not bi cities. Ucasons they
fire arc better hmiMns, pleasant er
Urine, and mote opportunity for
wholesome recreation.
Well, looking around our town
I'd aay that was about right. Most
of ni own our homes, and keep them
looking nice; we enjoy each other's
eompany: and our recreations are
mostly simple outdoor sports, and
in the evening a mellow glass of
beer with pleasant company.
As Doc Walters says, that sort of
life just naturally sets you up for
work the next day . . . whether it's
in office, mill, or field. And Doc
should know. He works fourteea
hours, but never misses his morn
ing "constitutional or his evening
glass of beer with friends.
From where I sit, any industry
could profit from being in a town
where wholesome living, temper
ance, and friendship are the rule.

...T6e Famous JOHN DEERE No. 5 Tractor Mower
New mower performance with
mighty low upkeep costs even after
cutting several thousand acres of hay

Deere No. 5 Mower is giving

more farmers prefer the No. 5 over
any other mower.

tor, the No. 5 mows from 25 to 35
acres per day ... is simple, durable,
easy to attach and detach. Strong,
well-braced frame; enclosed drive
running in oil; safety spring release
and slip clutch on the power shaft to
protect the mower against breakage
these are a few of the many im
portant features the No. 5 gives you.
Built with 4-12-, 5-, 6-, and 7-foot
cutter bars. See us for complete information.
What Makes
Telephone Jobs Good Jobs?
We believe telephone jobs are good jobs. But we'd like to tell
you something about working conditions in the telephone com
pany so you may decide fcr yourself. Good jobs are made up of
a number of things ... for example . . .
Is the work steady?
Telephone pay checks come regularly month in and month out. That's mighty im
portant to wage earners who can plan ahead and have reasonable assurance of steady
telephone work all through the year.
Are extra payments made for Sundays worked?
Yes. Double time is paid for specified holidays worked. Full pay, with a few excep
tions, is received by those who do not work these holidays. The holidays are New
Years Day, Washington's Birthday, Alemorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day,
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Are there paid vacations?
Certainly. After a year's service, employees get one week with pay .
two years on the job . . . three weeks after fifteen years.'
, two weeks after
Are there sickness benefits, death benefits and pensions?
ts, s.nce lit 13 and provided at no cost to the employee.
S.ckmss bencf.ts range from four weeks at full pay plus nine weeks at half pay for
an employee with two years' service on up to a year at full pay for those with 25 years'
service. The spectre of illness doesn't w orry the telephone family quite as much as it
would without this plan.
DeAh bcncjtts to dependents range from four months' pay for an employee with two
years' service on up to a full years' pay for an employee of ten years or more.
Pensions A fund plan paid for wholly by the company. Money accumulated over the
past twenty years is held by the Bankers Trust Company as trustee. This money can be
used for employees' pensions only. Each employee's pension is based on his rate of
pay and length of service.
Are cafeterics provided?
Employee cafeterias, in larger offices, serving quality food at low prices ... attractive
lounge rooms . . . goqd surroundings ... are just a few of the things that make tele
phone work pleasant.
More than 16,000 people here on the coast have liked their telephone jobs
well enough to spend more than 15 years with the company.
These tilings coupled with a policy of paying wages that compare with those paid for jobs
requiring similar skill and training in this territory have made it possible to attract good
people to these jobs.
