He will retire this avaSable, this-wss the job I . a l - week after 43 years service with the company, ways'iwanted."' Mr, Brown started his newspaper-career as. a reported on the Orenburg Daily News, acting also! as a correspondent for Frijnklin County newspapers. He was.'born in Ogdensburg, N. Y., onJMay 3, 1834, where he gradii- ateI'from St. Mary's Academy and the Ogdensburg Business college. "From the very beginning In 1916 when I joined General Electric, I thought I would like to run the company paper," ..Mr Brown recalled. "If a person wants to do something badly enought, usually.there is an op- po runity to do it." With the smile that people know him so well by, " " "It's nice to be paid he added, for it." Undoubtedly he knows more people at the G-E plant than any one else. Friendly, though n man of dignity, -his wide acquaintance which has extended over decades fionVtop executives to the men in 1 the shop. "I'm going to miss my daily association with peopl In all walks of life," he said Other than that he has no regret over his retirement. Ranking as one of the earl pioneers of General Electric a Bridgeport, the G-E editor is one of the few left here of that early group. Only two men now at the Bridgeport plant, 'have longer service, Stephen Kocis and Harry B. Tabor, and only two have comparable service, James F. Downey and Charles J. Hoeflich. When Mr; Brown leaves, there will be none to recall, with accuracy, the early history. General Electric occupied the. big, sprawling plant on May 20, 1920, taking it over from the Bridgeport Liquidation company. "The plant had been built during World War I with Russian money for the manufacture of guns and bayonets," Mr. Brown said. "When the Russians were knocked out of the war, the plant shifted to making guns and bayonets for the British and then for the United Slates." 'A white elephant after the war, the' plant was idle and the G-E purchase was a blessing to the '-A' handful of men, numbering about 15, came in May, 1920 to Btart manufacturing wiring devices, marking the beginning of G-E growth. By the end of the year, there was a working force o f - a few hundred. *' : 'In 1922, the merchandise de "is that in larger plajUs it'is no longer possible for the boss or management to speak directly to their people. It serves as an amplification of the voice of industry. · "An industrial newspaper should have a friendly and useful purpose. It is not designed to entertain but to inform. The policies, philosophies and aims of the company are presented. And news ol personal interest to others, such as scholarships awarded by :the company, pictures of semi-social events, deaths ,of veteran em- )loyes and sports. "Another important phase is he attempt to make.people safe :y conscious for despite indus trial safeguards, lack of knowl edge frequently resulls in in Under the highly competitive conditions today, he also pointed out, industry believes employes also should be informed of competition, both domestic and foreign. People's jobs depend on an understanding of this problem and knowledge may result in an effort to insure their jobs. . As G-E editor, Mr. Brown's activities extended into the broader public relations field. Times were often hectic and busy ones, when, for instance he was host to visiting war heroes, made speeches at various functions or 'not even tiddly-winks," his In- erest as president of Hie G-E Employes Athletic association and - recreation : coordinalor led o appointment as; a founding- member o f , t h e ' t h e n ' n e w YMCA ndustrinl; health arid recreation committee. He served 13 years, one as chairman.- This enterprise resulted in a city-wide industrial recreation program embracing employes of more than 80 : firms- The success of .the Bridgeport pattern brought,national:acclaim. All of his years in Bridgeport Mr. Brown has lived,within.the shadow of the G-E plant at-129 Hale terrace. He has a'deep-love for the city and its people. "I'm not going anywhere," he' said, "not to Florida" or ' California. I'm'going to stay riyht here in Bridgeport-" · ' Spelling put his plans for fu- re, he said, "I've been -active this'field s o - l o n g ' t h a t - I in COLUMBIA INVITES WALK-IN DONORS The noon period from 12 to 1 p m is being reserved tomorrow for walking blood donors', a t ' t h e Columbia Records' plant .oh Barnum avenue The public is invited to take part in Columbia's annual "Set'a record-Get a record" blood mobile visit.
