e ,/t e.. + \\; Saturday, April 22, 1944 Manufacturing Gr0up Reviews Year's Prooram Summarizing the year's aetivitles in a report which reflected In- creased influence in the comrrmn- ity's home front war effort, the Kenosha Manufacturers auooiation heard details of an elaborate pro- gram Friday night at the Elks Club Over 30 executives from local manufacturing plants attended the thirty-sixth annual dinner-meeting, at which time directors were elect- ed for the coming year. Dinner was served at 6:30 p. m., after which the business session was called to order by President H. J:Rafferty. ' Brief reports were rendered by all officers of the Association. These revealed an unusually busy year with an exceptionally marked in- crease in the number of employas at all industries. More meetings of the organization were held during the past fiscal year than for any other period of its history. This was due chiefly to matters pertaining to war production. Review 1943 Meetings A review of the minutes of 194S meetingts reveals that t least seventy-five percent of the subpeet$ considered and acted upon were occasioned hy the war. Among the most outanding of these are prior, ities, housing, war-manpower, war loans, renegotiation, stabiliztion, selective service, post wtr planning, etc. As long s war production con- tinues in the local industries, these and similr topics will constitute problems for the executives. Commendator- reference was made to the ser ices of the Factory Superintendents League, headed by Martin N. Jensen, of the Wisconlin Gas and Electric company, nd the Association of Office Managers un- der the leadership of Karl J. Krae, of Coopers, Inc. Then adS uncts of the Manufacturers As, clarion held monthly meetings dur, ing the year and discussed many subjects of vital interest to local industry. Tribute ws paid to the memory of Col. H. R. H. Horsey, president of the Coca-Cola Bottling Co, Due to failing health for several years, Col. Horsey was unable to attend many meetings of the Association, nevertheless, his cquintanceshlp extended to all his fellow manufc- turers and his passing was keenly regretted. Those who knew Col. Horsey intimately held him in high esteem. The only two charter members of the Association present were W. J. Frost and W. W. Vincent. The lttar served the organizt/on as president during the year 1913. Frost was president in 1918, 1919 and 1920. Each was called upon and respond- ed briefly, commending the also- citlon and Its official staff. Presents Resolution Chairman Rafferty presented resolution, directed to the Keno|fla County Board of Supervisors, re- spectfully urging that body to name a County Service Officer whose duties shall be to receive and care for returning veterns of the present war. It was aerted that discharged soldiers, many re- quiring hospitalization and rehabil- itation, are coming home in incrcased numbers and each com- munity owes an obligation to these men to the extent that they are properly received and promptly cared for. The resolution was adopted unanimously and ordered sent to the County Board of Super- visors. A committee correlating of M. C. Frost, J. H. Holm and William Nemitz was named by the chair to prepare a slate for the Executive Board. The committee retired and prepared the date as fol/ows: H. J. Rafferty, R. B. Whyte, H. E. Long, E. W. Hanak, F Hinrichs, R V. Vin- cent and William A Seileman. These names were confirmed by vote of the Association. It devolves upon the Executive Board to select the o/cers for the present fiscal year which action will be taken in the near future. @ Cyclists Revive Their Organization The Keno C'ycle Club, formerXy' the Noble Wheelmen, are bidding for community attention with a re- organization meeting held at the School Administration b u i I d ! n g Friday night. The men and women affiliated are cyclists, and they believe in bike-riding as hobby. A tempor- ary organization committee com- prises Ralph Pfarr, Charlotte Gill and Arthur Baker. The club is sponsoring its first bike-ride on Sunday, leaving Fif- tieth street and Sheridan rod at 2 p. m., weather perm/tting. Any one is invited to go along for the ride to Petrifying Springs Park. There are no fees or charges of any kind. Ove00 100 Tonsof Waste Paper Friday Curb collections of waste paper on Friday totaled over 100 tons, it was estimated today with moffl- clal tabulations showing tht the accumulations met expectations of salvage officials. Four full carloads were recorded t the railroad tracks where the truckz unloaded their valuable car- gee with the help of throngs of volunteers. W. B. Tower, chirman of the salvage committee, said he was awaiting official tonnage figures from the rellroad. Proceeds of the sale of paper to 3spar mills will be given to the Red Cross.
