Before this she and her husband, the late Mr. E. J. Meacham, were at Sabina, Ohio, where he was minister of the Christian Church. Much cf her time was spent in beautifying the campus and in helping and ministering to the girls. Her life was not in vain for she taught to all life ' s sweetest and dear- est lessons: Hope, patience, faith, humility and love most true. " He giveth his beloved sleep. " Psalm 127:2 Mrs. E. J.

Although last year ' s team had a poor record from the won and lest standpoint of view, much interest was created by the undying ccurage exhibited by mem- bers of the team as they fought dov n to the last out against overwhelming cdds. Pitching, as in years past seems to be the chief weakness in this year ' s aggregation; but, with the return of outstanding lettermen and the lar ge crop of freshman candidates cut for the team, this cculd be a good year for the Buffs.

Man-made fibers, new prod- ucts of the chemist ' s test-tube, have been a major contributor to this textile prog- ress. A small textile producer in 1923, Burlington Mills has become a leader in the development and production of beautiful, durable and high-quality filament, spun and knit synthetic fabrics. From one plant with approximately 200 em- ployees, our Company has grown to include 7.5 inanufacturing plants in 46 com- munities of eight states and four foreign countries. It is a recognized leader in the designing, development, research, merchandising and fashion fields as well as manufacturing. If you are a young man or woman looking for a place in in- dustry, we think you should consider textile — and Burlington. It can hold a bright future for the person with the willingness to learn, ability to work, and the natural interest in this fascinating and competitive field.
