Between 1914 and the late 1960s, the Champion Fibre Company published an internal newsletter, called The Log, to share news about the Canton mill, the community, and its employees. After 1940, news from the entire “Champion Family,” which included mills in Hamilton, Ohio; Houston, Texas and Sandersville, Georgia, was featured in each issue.

Its discovery was entirely accidental. It is said that the boy, in company with a sister and a younger bro-ther, went to a small stream that ;ran through t he farm, on a Sabbath day while their par­ents were at church, for the purpose of shooting fish with a bow and arrow. The boy shot at a fis:h in the W3!ter , the point of the arrow struck a ro,ck, and. the:r Old Reed Mine North ' observed where the arrow struck a yellow streak on the . stone. They picked up the fltone and carried it home. polished it and used it as a door c:he-ek fo r a :tlumber of years. In the year 1803 Mr. Reed went to Fayetteville,. took the metal with him aml showed it to a jeweler. The jeweler informed Mr. Reed it was g·old. Mr. Reed s.oid the nug:get, which was, perhaps, worth several thous­and dollars, to· the jeweler for $3.50. In 1804 the Reed mine was opened and many la.r 'e .nuggets of gold were found. Tl1e nugget shown in the pictu:re above weighed twenty-four pounds.. The man in the pictl;tre is A~ M .. Cox, 81 yea:rs of age. Mr. Cox was present when the twenty-four pound mlgget wa3 found. · A report of the ·mineral :resources of the United States by the Department of the Interior in 1914, states that "from 1804 to 1825 practically all o:f the gold produced in the United States came from Norlh · Carolina. The estimated total output -of gold fr om North Carolina ·to the end of 1914 is $2!3,416,357. Tl1e largest nugget found at the Reed mine weighed hventy-eight po.unds, and was found in 1803. In 1804 g·0ld Irugw~ts were found tha.t weighed 9. 7, 3 and 2 pounds eae:n. In 1824, 16:. 91/2, and 8 pounds·. In 1835, 13lj~ and 14 ~!:!- pouncls.

We are not prov­ing ourselves spiritually worthy of our material prog­ress. We have not b-een neighborly, courteous, and kinrl . upon the highway. Our lack of decency toward our fel ­low men is a definite blac1{ mark against us. How, then, can safe road habits and the proper social attitude toward the rights of oth er t ravelers be devel­oped? The mind which is unwilling to accept restric­tjons for the benefit of society will take chance on hill and on curves. To develop social attitudes which will bring more safety we must begin to inst ruct children, emphasizing the moral issues invol'ved in the national problem of reckless and careless d.I"iving. Children learn, partly in churches and schools, to be considerate and to interest themselves in other peo­ples' welfare. But most of their moral standards., which. through use, are built into habits and attitudes, a1·e acquired in lessons taught by thoughtf ul parents around the family fireside. Attitudes .are likely to be deep-seated and difficult to change. Habit s must b ~ embodied in our nervous .structure to enable us to act in a firm and prompt way in emergencies. They con stitute our c.hara.cter. All institutions which have re­sponsibility for children should strive through contin­uous training to prepare them to be safe and consider­ate drivers. And that i accomplished through the ef­fective moralizing and humanizing of native irnpul es. Plans are being gradually developed to provide more adequate assistance for those who are injured on the htg·hways.

Twenty-four out of 46 r eporting states had rates below the national average of '18.4.

A consideration of individual state records over a period. of years proves condu ively that accidental death can be reduced. For example, the death rate on a populatio!l basis declined more than 10 per cent in New York from 1930 to 1935, New Jersey shows a drop of 16 l)er cent, Pennsylvania one of 15 per cent and Ohio one of 10 per cent.

Selfishly, a driver will hug the center of the 1·oad, refuse to let others pass, w€ave in and out of tl:·affic, or cut across a line of cars when .he wants to nake a turn. , The courteous driver is the better driver and usually gets places just as fast. He invariably .shows his driv­ing ability by adopting good road habits. He always gets into position well before turning. If he plans to make a right turn, he pulls o·ver into the Jane nearest the right curb ox- roadside and signals ·ell in advance. He approaches the turn slowly and makes it sharply. Wben approaching a left turn, he pull.s into the lane nearest the center of the road and gives the proper signal before he reaches the corner. He never cuts a left-hand turn short, as this is not only a dangerous t hing to do but is also djscourteaus: to other drivers as well as to pedestrians. He respects the rights of other motorists, keeping away over on the .right-hand side of the road and al­ways leaving plenty of room for oncoming and passing t raffic. Before overtaking a car he makes sure that he has plenty of room to pull out of line and to get back again with ease and safety. He never crowds other cars jnto the ditch. He gives warning signals with his horn but never uses it unnecessarily. \Vhen traveling· at 40 miles an hour on th o en road he keeps about fjve car lengths behind the vehi l ahead and more when b·aw~ling faster.

Prior to pondering over this for orne­time, and compa1ing what could be learned about acci­d nts, I thought this fellow must be all "wet." I was vjsualizlng a number of accidents called "contributa.ry cause ," however, the records show the greates t num­b r of accidents are caused by the injured, and this brings us right bacl{ to the first law of mankind, so what ? Well, something within ourselves has got to be con­trolled. That something may be, in some peroons, the so-called "sporting instinct;" that is, they will take a chance one time. In others, they do not see the danger, just like an illiterate person trying to read a newspaper. The thing does not register in their minds. There are all sorts of emotion within the human be­ing, and it behooves each person to determine which of these is likely to get them into the injured class, tl.nrl guard that emotion. Recently, I had an emotion. While walking through the Board Mill basement, I saw a man hunkered do\vn ' the shank of his shoe;s· resting on the edge of the broke beater, under the calenders of No. 2 machine. Two days later I saw another man doing· the same thing. That sent my mind back 25 years. I had a friend who was a ,mechanic in a paper mill up North. He was working· on a hot bearing over a beater. The ladder upon which he was standing· was accidentally struck by a careless trucker, knocking him down into the beater. Well. the company did the only thing they could thev buried the entire contents of that beater • as his remains. - Seeing those men hunkered on the intake side of tha:t beater sent cold chills over me. It may be that some alterations should be made there to feed the beater under certain conditions, or maybe a sharp­toothed rake would do the trick. An how, I hope the first law of mankind wi11 prevail. -Owl Eyes. Take a Tip From 17our Dog Spee-d! peed! peed ! Speed is the spirit of today! 'Ve must all leal'n to relax.
