States Puts Million in Construction Plant to Operate Until Bins Are Full The million dollar post-war construction program of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company is about half completed, Gen. Hanford MacNider president and general manager, revealed Tuesday in the management's report to the stockholders at the annual meeting of the firm. Still planned for 1949 are the new dust collectors, turbines, generators, air separators and the proposed changes in wash houses, the president said. Installation of the dust collectors will go forward about March 1 with the arrival of the motors, he said, and it is hoped to have it completed by fall, depending on the manufacturers supplying the necessary equipment. The collectors will practically eliminate all dust from Northwestern States, he said. Overpass Completed Already completed are the overpass on Federal avenue and the creek bridge east of it by which rock will be brought from the new quarry to the plant. Development of the 300 acre quarry will continue but it is not expected that any rock will be used from it in 1949, according to Gen. MacNider. The last year was a very profitable one because of the heavy demand for cement, he told the stockholders. There is every prospect that that demand will continue well into 1949, he added. While shipments now have practically stopped because of the closing of the construction season, the plant will not shut down until the bins are full. It is expected that this will be accomplished in time for the opening of the 1949 spring construction season, he said. Officers Re-Elected Ten of the directors were reelected by the stockholders. They are Gen. MacNider, B. A. MacDonald, Peter Andersen and Charles E. Strickland,' all of Mason City; E. C. Fruden, Dubuque; William Stern, Fargo, N. Dak.; S. T. McKnight, Minneapolis; R. J. Tearse, Winona, Minn.; William Chamberlain, Saratoga, Cal., and Edwin White, St. Paul. Byron Gunderson, Kenyon, Minn., was elected in place of his brother, R, T. Gunderson. The usual dividends were declared. The board met after the stockholders meeting and re-elected the officers: Gen. MacNider, president and general manager; B. A MacDonald, vice president and assistant general manager; E. C. Fruden, vice president; Peter Andersen, secretary-treasurer, and G. R. Leaman, assistant secretary and assistant treasurer.

SINUS Hanford Hotel, Room 641 PHONE 2960 and Canada. This information was contained in an .article written by President MacNider in the December issue of "Run of the Mill," monthly publication of plant employes. It is MacNider's plan to continue with a series of articles each month on various phases of the company management. The article this month, headed •'Who Owns Northwestern pointed out that "stock- at the annual meeting States? holders which comes each year on the 3rd Tuesday in December, either in person or through proxy elect 11 directors, who in turn select the officers of the company for the coming year. "It will be a matter of interest to you to know that among the hundreds of holders of our stock there are no individuals who hold more than a small per cent7 or any affiliated or related groups of stockholders who own collectively more than a small fraction of the total shares outstanding. In other words, no one group has control nor is in a position to attempt to dictate who shall be members of or the company's the Board officers. . 'The management is therefore selected on the basis of delivery of what the majority of the stockholders consider proper results in the conduct of the company's affairs,_As we know, no other consideration governs their action each year at the annual meeting.' Naturally the stockholders are interested in how their investment is being safeguarded, conserved and developed and intensely so in the return or dividends which they receive on the funds which they have put into our operations. "They have supplied us with our plant, land and buildings and the machinery with which we manufacture our product. "In other words, they have supplied us the tools to do a job and what they receive in .dividends is the hire for their money, "There have been good years and lean years, but Northwestern States has a creditable earning record, which has attracted investors of many and varied interests to ownership of our stock, not only in Iowa but far'.afield. We can hardly, be considered a locally owned enterprise although the management is made up of local residents. "Every member of the organization who receives profit-sharing checks knows what our dividend payments are because that rate, together with years of service and his hourly wage, governs what he gets. Whenever the stockholder gets a dividend, every eligible em- ploye receives a profit-sharing check. In other, words, we all go up a^nd down together as far as return from the' company's earnings are concerned. "While our stock is not listed on any of the large exchanges it has a fairly active market in this part of the world. Anyone with the necessary funds to invest can buy it and it has, to the best of our knowledge and experience a free and uncontrolled market. ' "As an employe you have invested your time and abilities with the company, and the stockholder has invested his money. Both investments are important to the management and we endeavor to treat them as such." S. E.
