But there was no indication that the talks, which have been on dead center for 10 weeks, might produce any fireworks. An aide to Usery said a joint bargaining session after Usery returned here Friday continued until 1 a.m. Saturday, with federal mediators sitting in. Usery was back at work at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, meeting separately with industry and union repre- senatives, the aide reported. Meanwhile the United Rubber Workers' strike against the Big Four of the rubber industry was in its 74th day. The union has focused its talks here on the Firestone Tire Rubber Co., which the union picked as the best bet to set a pattern for the industry. However a spokesman for Usery said he also had been in contact with officials of the other three strikebound major companies-Goodyear. Goodrich and Uniroyal. * * WE WILL BE OPEN THE ICfillHWil ft£ FROM 1 P.M, TO 7 P.M. FOR YOUR SHOPPING CONVENIENCE 1755 Salt making by the Indians reported by Mary ~ Ingles. 1797 Elisha Brooks established first salt furnace near present town of Maiden. 1806 Ruffner Brothers, David and Joseph, bored first salt well. 1809 Tobias Ruffner drilled to great subterranean saline reservoir. 1831 Uncle Billy Morris invented revolutionary mining tool called "slips" 1835 George Patrick introduced the steam furnace to salt mining. 1816 Visit of steamboat "Eliza", first such vessel on Kanawha River. In observance of America's bicentennial, the people at FMC have brought you a series of the historic highlights of salt-making, the Kanawha Valley's first industry. Salt brine, one of West Virginia's basic resources, is still important to industry today. Using the same basic resources as the salt makers, FMC has developed major industrial facilities in the valley which transform these resources into components for a myriad of products for homes and industries throughout the world. FMC operates two important industrial chemical plants in the Kanawha Valley, at South Charleston and Nitro. Other manufacturers take the chemicals produced at FMC and use them in hundreds of consumer products. Our caustic soda is used in cellophane, soap, and aluminum. Chlorine is a widely used basic industrial chemical. Among its many uses are water purification, bleaching compounds, synthetic fibers, resins, · and plastics. FMC hydrogen peroxide, used extensively for textile bleaching, has found increasing application for odor control in wastewater treatment. Other products are used in aerosol sprays, solvents, insecticides and dry bleaches. Flame retardant plasticizers from our Nitro plant have been a boon to people and industries world-wide. These are used to make children's clothing flame-proof, as well as for fire-retardant coatings for industrial process equipment. At FMC we believe that communities and industries are joint owners of an area's history. Each, therefore, should take pride in this heritage, find occasion to make it known, and, most of all, make every effort to preserve it. Accordingly, we are publishing a new edition of our brochure, "The Salt Industry in the Kanawha Valley," containing complete historical information on the salt industry in our area, as well as a large inserted map, suitable for framing, showing location of all the old salt furnaces in the valley. To reserve your copy of this brochure, write: Public Affairs Manager FMC Corporation Box 8127 South Charleston, WV 25303 Please allow a few weeks for completion and delivery. We would appreciate any comments you might care to make on our Salt Industry advertising series. ·FMC Chemicals 1817 First trust in U.S. formed -the "Kanawha Salt Company".
