WEDNESDAY,. JUNE 17, 1053 141 Factory and Office Women To Take Mass Vacation Abroad By KOBERT GOLDENSTEIN CHICAGO Uft— A 10-year dream "bought" with meatless sandwiches and old Easter outfits will come true next month when 141 factory women and office workers take off for a mass vacation flight to Europe. The women plan to tour six countries and visit the Pope and Ambassador Clare Boothe Luce in Rome. They have asked Queen Elizabeth of England and Queen j Juliana of The Netherlands to receive them and are hopefully awaiting: replies.

Wayne to New York, then on to London ajad three weeks later back to Ft. Wayne aboard several special TWA constellations. They will be the largest civilian group ever to fly-the Atlantic at one time. "We're blazing a trail—industrial women are coming into their own," Miss Irene Meyers, 53, su pervisor of women's activities at the plant, said in an interview in Chicago today. These Midwest factory workers hope to face up to the situation with all the polish of seasoned globetrotters. For several months they have been attending special classes studying French, the proper use of dinner wines and a long list of does and don'ts for European travelers. If the queens promise them an audience, they plan some last minute cramming on the technique of curtsying. Although Miss Meyers conceived the idea of such a mass trip 10 years ago, the final decision wasn't reached until 1950. That gave the factory women three years to save enough money from their wages, j ville, gav .' Th - ho , which range from 53,000 to 53,500 annually. Plans were worked out with the board, when 23 members were present. Tru hostesses were Mrs. P. D Johnson and Mrs. Alec Crosthwait. Mrs. E. L. Taliaferro had charge of the program.

Civil service exams were offered in four states as bank examiners. Four out of the 300 wno took the examination passed it and Jimmie was one of the four. "My first assignment," continued Jimmie, "was to go to Hunt- ingtdn. Tenn. I wnodered if I would do all right but having worked in banks for so long and having seen bank examiners work, I made out all right on that first assignment. Traveling and being away from home most of the time was the worst thing about my job. The PAGE FTVE guidebook of instructions for assistant examiners that I wrote Is still being used all over the United States." It was in is« that Jimmie joined the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.. Washington, D. C., as bank examiner through the civil service examination. He traveled in Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. When he was inducted into World War II, he took his basic training for infantry training and finance training at Ft. Benjamin Harrison, Indianapolis. Twenty young men went, through with the training. "The purpose of the training was to establish a new fiscal office in the Pacific. It was a brand new idea the army had and was to control all the expenditures in the Pacific. Every thing had to be run through that medium. The first office was set up in Australia. We handled all the finances and vouchers. We increased the personnel to 300 before ve got through.

HOWD YOU LIKE TO PAY TAXES ON 1567 MILES OF PROPERTY? he annual lax bili on our 1567 miles of property in six states is a pretty tidy sum—as you can imagine. Yes, the taxes we pay are heavy. But they are benefiting hundreds of cities, counties and towns along our route ... helping to defray the costs of roads, schools, and othet local services. In this way we are helping your community develop and prosper. Your neighbor, ectitlve vice president and cashier of Mississippi County Bank these three years have brought Ruth and I a feeling of having planted our tap roots in one of the best towns in the world." Jimmie is director of the Kiwanis Club, treasurer of chamber of Commerce, chairman of Defense program of South Mississippi County and is a Mason. The foundation that Jimmie set for his conduct and thinking is a masterpiece and if we all tried to follow his pattern, what a wonderful world this would be. With a Dad like Jimmie,little Jim Bill has nothing to fear. Philosophy such as the following is why Osceola admires and loves Jimmie Parris: "FAITH—Piiith in God, suprerni ruler of the universe whose son wa: crucified for our sins and rose U offer us eternal life, who will an swer prayer. Faith in others, tor (here is good in everyone and they deserve consideration and trust a.i we ourselves expect them. Faith in Ourselves, for we can accomplish the impossible if our belief is strong enough and we try hard enough." "Hope—Gives us Ambition. Hope that the world will be a better place to live through our efforts. Hop« that we can accomplish our dreams mid desires. Never be satisfied but strive unceasingly to be better and do better things." "LOVE — Make us happy. Love other people with unselfish devotion. Live so that we will be loved by others thru thoughts, words and deeds."
