JUNE, 1921 

Ko. 1 


Once in a V7hile it seems to be a good 

plan to break all rules even the very 

best of rales. Ordinarily, dLnonymous 

letters deserve no Sknsvrer. It is pretty 
safe to fonr. the habit of gently drop- 
ping unsigned communications into the 
waste basket. For the most part, un- 
signed letters are sent in a spirit of 

malice and are -unsigned because of 

such malice. 

There is no reason, however, viij the 
letter that follows should not have been 
signed. It shows that the v/riter does 

not ijnderstand all o:f the difficulties 
of conducting a large business but there 
is no rancor, no threat, no malice. The 
writer of the letter had a perfect ri^t 
to say vAiat he did, and to ask v*iat he 
did. His only mistake was in not sign- 
ing it. 

'iVe want to answer it, but we see no 
way of reaching the author, except by 

using the pages of the Kodak L'.agazine 

and perhaps it will be just as v,«ell to 
answer in print, because there may be a 
few others \i4io have been thinking along 
the same lines, and v/ho will be helped 
to a better understanding of business 
problems if they read vdiat we have to 

This is the letter: 

"Ht. Zastmaji: — 

Only a few words to ask you 

as a good man is it charity 

to lay off men a week at a time, 
taking bread from the families 
at home ? In the name of the 
holy iiOd, ^y do you allow it . 
We look to you for mercy for you 
are the head of Kodak and a char- 
itable heart. 

I have worked in your plant 
for 15 years. V.hy keep my 

week's earnings . 

There is never a lay-off of men, nev- 
er a shortening of hours belov/ the norm- 
al except in cases of absolute necessity. 
If we were all-wise, if we could tell a 
year or tv/o years ahead just v.tiat busi- 
ness conditions are to be, and, if busi- 
ness always raji along at about the sstme 
gait, it would be possible to adjust the 
number of employees and the plant output 
to such a nicety that there would be a 
full day's work for everybody every day. 

Indeed, that would be the ideal con- 
dition for economical majiufacture, for 
the plaint and the force would always be 
large enou^ to fill the demand, the 
goods would be sold quickly and we would 
get our money. On the other hand, the 
plant would never be too large, and there- 
fore, we would never be obliged to add to 
the cost of our goods the overhead of tm- 
used machinery and unused factory space. 

But general business conditions have 
always had their ups and downs, and prob- 
ably always will have. At one time, 

everybody has a job full time, good 

pay. There's a boom on. All looks 
rosy. People spend freely, too freely, 
to tell the truth, and among the things 
they buy are photographic goods. T.'e are 
crowded to the limit to turn out the 

goods fast enou^. Then smash I 

There's a crop failure, or a threat of 
war, or people suddenly get it into their 
heads that they rrrust stop buying because 
prices are going down; and they do stop 
b'jying, and stop so hard that rriar.ufact- 
urers have to stop making. And, if the 
manufacturer does not stop making, the 
goods pile up on his hands, and present- 
ly he has warehouses full of goods, and 
no money to pay his help, and he has to 
stop making. 

It would be great fun doing business 
if it tere always possible to give every 
employee big wages, and a steady job and 
then add enou^ to the cost of the goods 



in mBking tne selling price, so that 
the stockholders, the people who pat \xp 
the money to capitalize the business, 
coiild always have nice dividends. Bat, 
it Just can't be done. If the goods 
cost too mach, you can't sell them, be- 
cause somebody else can sell similar 
goods for less money, or because they 
are so high-priced that people will get 
along withoat them, in which case there 
can neither be v.ages nor dividends. The 
whole works stop. 

And, daring the recent era of high 
prices and boom times, the stockholders 
have by no means had the best of it. 
Our sales in li>i;0 were more than double 
those of 1916, the last j^ear before the 
war; yet oar net profits in 1920 were 
only Just a trifle over seven per cent, 
more than in 1916, and only a very small 
fraction of the increase in volvnne of 
business was due to an Increase in the 
price of the goods. The principal rea- 
son why the company made only about the 
same amount of money in 1920 that it 
did In 1916, even though it did double 
the business, was because of the in- 
creased cost of raw materials, and the 
increased wa^es. Of course, the employ- 
ees were entitled to the increased wa- 
ges. Living costs were so great that 
they really had to have the increase, 
but they should remember that living 
costs went up just as much for the 
stockholders as for the wage-earners, 
and the stockholders got no increased 

Our anonymous correspondent asks if 
it is charity to lay off men. Distinct- 
ly it is not, and v.e are sure that our 
employees do not want charity. What 
they want is pay for the work they pro- 
duce. They want steady v/ork, but they 
do not want it any more than we want 
to give it to them. But, when general 
business conditions are upset, when 
other factories are shut dov.n because 
of a lack of orders, when people are out 
of work because of strikes, when farmers 
are getting only small prices for their 
products, there are fewer people with 
money to buy cameras and liliris, and we 
must therefore go slowly. V^e have every 
desire to keep every wheel turning, and 
keep every employee working full time. 
Full capacity production means that the 
goods cost less and we have at heart the 
welfare of every employee. 7/e want to see 
them busy and happy and with full pay en- 
velopes. But it would be business suicide 
for us to go on producing to full capac- 

ity at times v&icxi w© cunnot sell the 
goods. We would have to pay for the 

raw materials; we would have to meet 
the weekly pay roll, but we could not 
pay in goods. We v;ould have to pay 

in money. And, wtien the public, for 
one reason or another, is not buying, 
flhere would the money come from ? 

Economical production prohibits the 
piling up of stocks too far in advance. 
In some cases the goods deteriorate with 
age. In other cases they are likely 
to be superseded by goods that are more 
popular. In every case there is a dis- 
.tinct loss in dollars and cents ^en 

stocks arc too great a loss that adis 

to the cost of the goods. 

Right now, the economical production 
of goods is most important, for, not on- 
ly are people spending less freely, but 
competition is keen. Other manufaxjt- 

urers, including foreign manufacturers 
with low labor costs, are after our mar- 
ket. To offset this, v/e are increasing 
our sales force and increasing our ad- 
vertising, but the real test is this: 
We must manufacture our goods at a cost 
that v/ill enable us to sell them in com- 
petition. To do this, we must v/ork on 
a purely business basis. There would 

be no real charity in pursuing a policy 
that would make our goods cost so much 
that 'Are could not sell them at a profit. 
Such a policy in the long run could mean 
but one thing-- business suicide. 

We are going through the period of re- 
adjustment that follows every war. Yet 
there already are signs which indicate 
that general business will soon be better. 
Our business is not off as much as is the 
average business. v/e are using every ef- 
fort to bring it back to traximuir.. Every 
employee can do his part by avoiding 
waste, by producing to the best of his 
ability, that we may be able to continue 
to marlret good goods at a price that will 
meet the prices of our competitors, and 
at prices that the public can afford to 
pay. It is by just such \*ole-hearted 

co-operation that every producer can, by 
helping others, help himself. 

no, it is not charity to lay off men. 
But at times it is a nocossity that can- 
not be avoided. We avoid it when possi- 
ble because we are .thinking of the welfare 
of our employees, Ve avoid it when pos- 
sible, because we kno"^' that the earnest 




and efficient employee is going to 
get employment vftiere lay-offs are 
infreq,uent, and we don't want to 

lose him- any more than he 

wants to lose his day's work and 
his day's pay. 


Main Office Captures First Award 

Neither season nor subject seems to 
stand in the way of the production of 
technically good and artistically worthy 
pictures by the amateur photographers 
within the Kodak organization. 

The number of entries and quality of 
prints submitted for our Third Qusirter- 
ly Amateur Photographic Competition fully 
equalled the preceding contests, and the 
Judges fovmd it necessary to carefully 
consider every point In making the awards. 

Main Office carries off the fifty dol- 
lar First Award with a delightful night 
snow scene by K. 1}. I7illiams. The Sec- 
ond Award , $;i5.00, was captured by A. 
KoK. 'flsir of the D. H. Hogg Co., Reg'd. , 
of Montreal. The Third Award , ?15.00, 
went to Harry E. Buck, Kodak Park, and 
the Fourth Award, ^10.00, to S. P. Vight- 
man, Kodak Park; this makes Dr. Wight - 
Bian's second appearance in the award 
oolxunn. The following were awarded 
Honorable Mention: Mrs. J. E. Rohde, 

Main Office; ■.Villiam 1. Whincup, Camera 
57orks; James Trayhem, Kodak Park, and 
C. .V. Gibbs, Kodak Park. From the start 
the Main Office "declared themselves in" 
on this contest and got away with two 

Under the circumstances, we are un- 
able to print the prize winning pic- 
tures, but we trust to show them in a 
later issue. 

During the summer months we declare a 
cessation of hostilities, so as to allow 
all of you to accumulate a heap of good 
material during the vacation period, and 
the next contest will be announced in 
OMx September issue. 

iffill the prize winners please remem- 
ber that the negatives, from which the 
prize winning prints were made, become 
the property of the Kodak Magazine, and 
must be delivered to the Editor before 
the awards are paid ? 


In the kay i«6ue, we had a few words 
to say relative to house-cleaning time 
and fire prevention. 'ffe mentioned bon- 
fires, but failed to state that there 
v/as and is a city ordinance prohib- 
iting them; so, be careful in this re- 
spect, or you may have a fine to pay. 

If you o/m your ovm home, you undoubt- 
edly have it insured, but many people, 
especially those living in rented homes, 
fall to have their household goods and 
other personal effects covered by insur- 
ance. This is a big mistake and, 

if you happen to be in this class, pro- 
tect yourself at the earliest moment. 

Now, supposing you do have a fire 
and your house and household goods are 
covered by insurance; here Is what you 
should do: Save all you can; your pol- 
icy says that you must do so. Do It as 
carefully as possible. Act exactly as 

you would if you had no insurance at all, 
but do not destroy debris of property. 
Property saved belongs to the insured, 
not to the insurance company; so, take 
good care of it. Any legitimate ex- 
pense incurred in protecting property 
from further damage is part of the loss. 

After the Fire 

Notify your insurance agent at once. 
Clear up, dry out, and air the saved 
property. Damaged property should be 
separated from the undamaged as soon 
as possible, and the debris of totally 
destroyed goods, charred lumber, cinders 
and ashes carried out of the building, 
and placed where it can be examined by 
the adjuster when he arrives. 

In other words, treat the insurance 
company and its representatives in the 
sane manner that you .vould have them 
deal with you. 



A Definition: Doctors who furtively 
oppose, hamper, or discourage a great 
coraninity health moveraent in order to 
further their ovm private interests. 

Fbllow Kodak Employees: 

At the close of the second Tcnsil- 
^aencid Ciinic on April 17th, there 
vrere remaining in the public schools 
of Bcchester about 10,000 children who 
v;ere in dire need of the tonsil-adenoid 
operation. These children had been ex- 
amined by the health officers of the 
city and included no doubtful cases; on- 
ly those flrtio had diseased tonsils that 
".vere interfering v/ith their physical 
-.Tel fare were included. ?rom three to 
five thousand of these children, in my 
opinion, have been prevented from re- 
ceiving the benefits of the. operation 
by doctors who think that the clinic in- 
terferes v/ith their opportunities to col- 
lect fees for private operations. There 
are in the City of Rochester about 400 
physicians and surgeons. The great ma- 
jority are men with correct ethical 1- 
deas, but a;i30ng them there are some who 
are v/illing to sacrifice the interests 
of the cOEiLunity to further their own, 
and who should be classed as above. The 
object of this letter is to enable you 
to identify them. 

The advisability of removing diseased 
tonsils such as have been classified by 
the examining physicians as IIos. 3 and 
■i is no longer debatable in good faith 
^^ong the doctors of Rochester for the 
reason that the competent men have de- 
clared themselves over and over again en 
the affirmative side. In the prelimin- 
ary survey last fall when all the chil- 
dren in four typical schools were examin- 
ed, it was found that the percentages cf 
children needing the operation who had 
had the benefit of it were as follows: 

Poorest school ISye 

liedium school 34/J 

Well-to-do school 41J6 

Rich private school 97^ 

This record shows conclusively that, 
the poorer the child, the less attention 
it has had, and that practically every 
child of rich parents needing it in the 
(Jity Of Rochester has had the advantage 

of the operation. The object of the 
clinic was to give the children of the 
people of limited means the same oppor- 
tunity as the children of the rich. To 
do this a remarkable organization v/as 
built up, competent to perform 600 op- 
erations per v/eek, divided among the 
hospitals. Dental Dispensary, and the 
emergency clinic at Convention Hall. 
7he co-operation of some of the best 
physicians and surgeons in town was se- 
cured. The hospitals made Arrangements 
(at great inconvenience to then:) to take 
care of their quota, and preparations 
vrere made to do 1£,000 or 14,000 opera- 
tions before the first of July, which 
was only about 755b of the known existing 
cases neediiig Inmediate attention. 

The clinic had to shut dovm v/nen only 
a little ever 7,300 cases had been oper- 
ated upon. rareuts of the remaining 
10,000 could not be convined of the ne- 
cessity of this operation. How many cf 
this remaining 10,000 had been influenced 
against the clinic by their doctors is a 
mere guess, but, in my opinion, 3,000 to 
5,000 is a fair estimate. It is likely 
that the number of doctors v/ho have en- 
deavored to prejudice people against tae 
clinic is small compared to the total 
number of doctors in the City, but the 
influence of even a small number of such 
men is very great. These men can easily 
be identified by their actions. If any 
doctor has told you that the operation is 
dangerous, that the benefits of the op- 
eration are doubtful, or that the phy- 
sicians in the clinic are incompetent or 
careless, you may mark him down as one 
coming .vithin the definition. Bear in 
r.ind that doctors are much like other 
people. The great bulk of them are hon- 
est, but some of them are dishonest, am 
such are often v/illing to sacrifice the 
interests of their jatients in order to 
get money for themselves. Such men are 
the most dangerous members of this com- 
r.iunity because their v/ork is furtive and 
hidden, ana done under an altruistic g".;ise. 

If one of your children has been ex- 
amined in the school and recommended to 
aave the operation, and your physician ad- 
vises against it, if he is honsst, he v/iil 
be perfectly willing to give his reasons 
in writing addressed to Dr. V.'. A. Sawyer, 
lledical iJirector of this company. If 




your ohlld has not been exsuninod, you 
should send it to the Dental Dispensary 
to be examined. If the child has dis- 
eased tonsils and you fail to have them 
removed, some day you will almost sure- 
ly have cause to regret it, and your 
child will have good reason to blame yofu 
for yoxir failure to taloe advantage of an 
opportiinity which would have saved him, 
or her, much suffering and possibly per- 
manent disability. 

The operation is a simple one, and not 
dangerous when performed by skilled men 
who make a specialty of the work. Over 
13,000 operations have been performed 

in the hospitals, Dental Dispensary, emd 
the txfo emergency clinics within toe 
past two years, without a single fatal- 

The operation should be performed in 
a hospital or clinic where the child con 
be kept under skilled observation until 
all danger is over. A rich T^J^1^ oan put 
his child into a private room at a hos- 
pital cad pay for a private operation and 
a special nurse, but even then he cannot 
secure for it greater skill or better 
care than the children receive who go 
to the clinics and pay only a nominal 


Everything that helps the company 
helps you as an employee. 

If an improvement is made in a pro- 
duct whereby it oan be manufactured at 
a less cost or in an iiq>roved way, it 
helps you. 

If a short cut through some business 
routine is devised, thus saving time 
and money for the company, it helps you. 

Ejqjeriraental departments and e:q)ert6 
in business management have no monopoly 
on good ideas; they must have the co- 
operation of you and me all of us, to 

keep our organization In the front rank. 
It v/as for this reason that the Sug- 
gestion System was established. 

The Su(>P«stion System Committee is 
the clearing house for ideas, and all 
ideas submitted in the form of a sug- 
gestion receive prompt and thorough in- 
vestigation; there is no chance of their 
being lost or pigeon-holed in soxe busy 
executive's desk. 

Our Suggestion Committee takes its 
job seriously; they are sold on the 
idea that whatever helps the comx>any 
helps each inaividual employee. 

In the thousands of suggestions re- 

ceived durinii tae year, a good many 
that are seemingly trivial are handed 
in. Suggestions of this nature are 
not just dismissed with short shrift, 
but are carefully and thoroughly in- 
vestigated, as are all others, and 
turned down only when all the evidence 
is overwhelmingly against them. 

Son» of you have sent In a suggestion 
that was turned down, and tnerefore you 
stopped letting your idea faotory work. 
That is the wroag way to do. *9 could 
mention a number of employees whose first 
and sometices second and third sug- 
gestions were turned down; this did not 
discourage them, and they have since re- 
ceived substantial a%-ards. 

Get the idea out of your head if 

it exists that the Suggestion System 

is solely a company plan it is fally 

as much yours, a mutual affair all the 
way through. 

Whatever helps the company helps 
you. If you have an Idea you think 
might be worth v/hile, act on it — don't 
sleep on it send it In. 

And, once more, bear In mind the 
fact that "31g Awards for Big Thoughts" 
Is a slogan which means just what it

is not new, but it was new to us in ap-

had a merry tiroe v/ith their typewriters 
in the endeavor to make column width 
and length come out right.

We had planned a somewhat different 
appearance for the first issue of Vol- 
ume II of the Xodak l!agazine and 

you will riave to admit that this number 
is somev/hat different, though not in 
the manner intended. 

To quote our "aula frlen" Robbie 
Bums, "the plans of mice and men gang 
oft aglee. " At the present writing, 
there is a difference of opinion in 
the printing industry which prevents us 

appearing in our usual form but here 

we are Just the same. 

•fe confess to having had to do quite 
a bit of erperimenting, and, in so doing, 
have developed a keener sympathy for our 
research and experimental departments. 

•Ve have had to abandon temporarily 
the glossy paper, the half-tone illus- 
trations, and to omit mainy small items 
of interest, but .ve knov/ that you will 
bear with us in this. 

In the Kodak or -anization, doing 
things whether or no has become a con- 
firmed habit, and so, v/hen we find one 
avenue closed, we search for and find 
another v/ay out. 

The fun we are having in overcoming 
the difficulties arising from the print- 
ers' strike reminds us of the story of 
the country editor in the 7/ild and wooly 
days out West. This editor had as his 
leading editorial one week an article 
that ran about as follows:

Thinlc of this .' One million dol- 
lars was taicen out of Rocliester last 
year by fake stook salesmen on the 
promise of big returns for money in- 
vested in their stoolc. Most of us 
cannot conceive of any reason why a man 
should part with his money without thor- 
oxighly investigating the merits of 
the stock offered for sale. Yet, it 
appears that only the weak arguments of 
the salesman are sufficient to make the 
unwary part with their hard-earned life 

A representative of the Rochester 
Investors Protective Committee, posing 
as a wortonan in a factory, placed him- 
self in the way of a stock salesman for 
the purpose of ascertaining what line 
the get-rich-quick promoters use. The 
strongest selling point is not the val- 
ue of the securities offered, but the 
fact tbiat the .worker's employer "had the 
aerve to take a chance, make an invest- 
ment, and thereby become -ffealthy." The 
worker is told he has as good or a bet- 
ter chance to become independent by pur- 
chasing the stock offered. "The thing, 
my boy, is to strike out for yourself", 
"clean up in one good investment", and, 
"all you need is the nerve to start and 
soon you will have others working for 
you", are other sellizig arguments. 

When one of the salesmen was asked 
why his concern had not submitted its 

proposition to the Chamber of ConiDeroe 
or Rochester banks, the investigator 
was told that those institutions "would 
knock anything they are not in on them- 

It was subtly hinted to the prospect- 
ive investor that he should not be mis- 
led by his employers or by capitalists 
as it was to the interest of manufactur- 
ers, chambers of commerce, and bankers 
to "keep the workinjman down". 

The strong persistence shov,-n by the 
stock salesmen was responsible for many 
of their sales, according to the invest- 
igator. Once a "prospect" gets into 
the hands of these promoters, he is sub- 
jected to a third degree inquisition in 
which the salesman winds up with a la- 
ment that he should have wasted his time 
on a man who lacks the initiative and 
courage to make quick decisions although 
he is sorry he has not been the means of 
aiding him to act for himself and ac- 
quire a competence. 

Employers and their attitude are 
made the lure which has been success- 
ful in wheedling savings from the 
pockets of wage earners. There is 
no easier or better way of losing all 
your money than by handing it over to 
these fake stock salesmen. Don't 
listen to these glib-tongued promoters .' 
Don't be the next victim .'

When you start to cross the street 
at one of the downtown crossings, the 
traffic "cop" at the curb calls out: 

"Heads up '." and this is mighty 

good advice. 

A very high perc antage of street ac- 
cidents are caused through absentminded- 

ness 'Vool gathering". Ptolks get to 

thinking about something intently, and 
then walk spang in front of a street car 
or into the side of a passing automobile 
with more or less distressing results. 

There are such tniugs as careless and 
reckless drivers to v/atch out for. and 
"Heads up .' " is a mighty good safety 
rule to keep ever in mind. 

An accident, no rratter how Incurred, 
is, to say the least, unpleasant, but

street accidents are more expensive than

paper, I was surpised at the amount of 
change I received, and, on questioning 
Henry, learned that I had ^jiven him a 
five dollar bill the day before, and had 
vamoosed before he could dig out some 
bills. I hadn't as yet missed the 

money but Henry, honest as he is, knew 

I would, and he didn't for one minute 
forget that necessary requisite for suc- 
cess in life integrity. 

Integrity draws the highest rate of 
interest in the business world. I'oney 
may pay five per cent., or more, but 
integrity alvrays earns at leapt one 
hundred per cent. Squareness is a good 

synonym for integrity they both mean 

the same. A person of integrity is 
alv/ays unselfish. He considers not 
alone the profits of today's labor, but 
the v/orth of to-morrov/'s good will. De- 
ception plays no part. 

This matter of Integrity is too of- 
ten pigeon-holed in our daily business.

overlooked ? Why do so many of us 
dismiss the matter as trivial ? In- 
tegrity is the corner-stone of success.

fie all of us knov/ toat there is 
something wrou^ v/ith things in gener- 
al, but many of us fail to see where 
we can do anything individually to 
help matters; we are inclined to pass 
the question to the man higher up for 

?e do not buy many of the things 
that we purchased freely in ordinary 
tines because we feel that the price 
is too high. 

In many instances, the cost of raw 
material has down, but the cost 
of production and distribution has not, 
and 80, until toese costs have been 
proportionately reduced, the higher 
price must prevail. 

Now, one way to lower production 
cost is to produce more in a given 
period. Every one of us can do more 
per aay than v/e aire doing; every one 
of us have it in our power to help 
lower production costs, whether we are 
employed in the actual manufacture or 

VTaat follows may sotmd to you a bit 
"preachy" and trite, but it honestly 
is worthy of your thoughtful consider- 
ation and action because it di- 
rectly affects you in the pooket-boolc. 

A machine in good order can turn 
out more good •Art)rl£ than one out of re- 
pair; this is equally true of the hu- 
man machine. Keep yourself fit. ?ive 
minutes a day wasted by a single indi- 
vidual does not seem much; multiply 
this by tvrelve thousand, and it runs 
into good hard dollars. 

An accident, and most accidents 

are due to carelessness costs both 

tine and money, and this cost must be 
added to tae cost of production. 

.Vasted and spoiled material, yes, 
even lead r«ncils, paper clips, and 
rubber bands cost a tidy sum per year; 
their cost must be added to the cost 
of production. 

You have it in your power to help 
materially in bringing things back 
to normal. So, all together, now, 
let's go ! 

"Bill is a fine chap," or '".'^ry is 
a mighty nice girl to work with" ; 
quite frequently you hear some such re- 
mark passed regarding someone around 
the plant. Again, you may Inquire 
about someone, and the reply will be, 
"Oh, I guess he's all right, but the 
fellows don't seem to care for him much," 
Or else a frank avowal of dislike. 

'/le all like to be popular with the 
rest Of the people v/e know, for man is 

by nature a friendly animal and when 

we are not, or think we are not, it is 
usually our own fault. But we have 
pretty near got to be what the other 
fellows think we are; we cannot be sly 
and a bit deceitful and have the other 
folks believe that we are four square 
for any length of time. On the other 
hand, the most unpopular or disagree- 
able person that you knov/ aas friends 
who think that he, or she, is perfectly 
all right. 

One man, a really bright chap, lost 
many friends by his peculiar jealous 
temperament. He Just couldn't seem 
to bear to see anyone else but himself 
succeed. If some new chap came into 
the department, and seerced to be get- 
ting a good start, he would go to the 
next man to the boss in the department, 
and tell him how the new man was trying 
to undermine him with the boss, or if 
that didn't work, he would try to stir 
up dissension some other way. flhen 
he felt like it he could be Just the 
pleasantest chap imaginable, and then 
without warning, or provocation, turn 
on someone and "roast" him to a turn. 
We all heaved a sigh of relief when 
he left for pastures new. 

You don't have to be noisy or boist- 
erous, and go around slapping the fel- 
lows on the back to be popular; or be 
what is called a "good mixer," but you 
have got to be what you want folks to 
think you are if you -.Tant your good 
standing to be permanent. 

Slouching gives a poor appearance and 
oro-wis the lungs. Sit and stand "tall" 
at your v/ork, and note the difference in 
the length of time before the body tires 
of the position. 

Don't forget to breathe deeply now 
and then.

Charles E. Jolmson, our genial and 
efficient Traffic ilanager, ixeld an 
informal reception at his office on 
the first floor of Building 6, on Hay 
11th, the occasion being his coTsple- 
tion of thirty-three years of 
service with the oompaji^, Mr. 

Johnson received many congratulations 
from his co-workers. 

"Charley" came to us in 1888. His 
wcrk was in the Shipping Department 
under liar tin Freidell, then shipping 
cleric. LIr. Johnson has a distinct 

recollection of packing and shipping 
the first Kodak ever sent out by the 
company. He also has a flood of 
reminiscences of the early days. 

Eight years ago, on the occasion 
of his twenty-fifth anniversary, LIr. 
Johnson treated his employees to an 
outing at Rifle Range, which is still 
talked about v/henever the old-timers 
congregate, ^.t that time, his boys 
presented him with a Howard watch, 
which still Terrains his most cher- 
ished possession. 



The girls of Kodak Office are 
organizing a baseball team and have 
the use of the Escposition Park Diamond 
No. 4 for practice every Monday night

have lots of pep. 

We want every girl who has played 
baseball or wishes to leara, to come 
out every Lionday night and show that 
she is anxious to make the team. 

Come on, girls, wo want recruits.

made the occasion for any hilarity, 
Fred received many congratulations from 
his friends throughout the company. 
We all hope to enjoy twenty-five more 
years of fellowship with Fred LaPalm.

athletics at Kodak Office, has any 
one game taken such a hold as base-

to all of the Kodak V/orkers, from the 
big guns down to the newest employee. 

the biggest and most cheerful friend 
the Kodak workers could have. You 
have brought us nearer from far-off 
points. CKir pleasure in your 
"Kodaking as you go''brings back happi- 
ness of by-gone days. Your industrial, 
as well as your socisLl relation to us 
Kodakers is regarded as a most 
vrelcorra medium. Your introduction to 
the family home was one great ovation. 
You required no advance agents to 
herald your coming. You happened like 
all big things in Kodak, quietly and 
unassumingly. Vfe consider you were 
simply bom to us, and at first sidat 
you were made one of the family. Salaam 
to thee. Honorable Kodak Jiagazine. 

At the fireside, you have become 
indispensable. Why? Because you 
are a most wonderful entertainer. 
You're Just bubbling over from cover 
to cover with the most interesting 
sort of things. You keep us inform- 
ed of the wide range of Koda>: activi- 
ties. Your sympathies console us in 
the hour of bereavement, and your con- 
gratulations are extended where most 
fitting; in character and principle, you 
are the span cleanest fellow a-nongst us. 
In fact, you've got the ^nhole Xoiak 
family in one big circle of harmony. IVith 
success, and best v/ishes for a long and 
useful careerl

"Camera ^orks is oar favorite 
dish" - sounds like our old friend, 
A. Mutt, talking, but really there is 
no expression which more fittingly 
voices the sentiments of the Hawk-Eye 
fans. For the two years that the 
League has been in existence. Camera 
Works and Hawk-Eye have been fighting 
out the championship battles down to 
the very last game. 

It is true that v.e have lost some 
fighting blood, in that we are minus 
the services of such stars as Fox at 
third, Petersen behind the plate, and 
Marcille in the box; however. Manager 
J. fiussell Craib promises to provide 
equally valuable talent to offset the 
loss. In tnis, he is aided greatly by 
the fact that the Premo and Folmer 
Century plants have decided not to 
place representative teaioa in the 
League this year. Suoh action on 
their part brought out a decision from 
the directors of the League to the 
effect that the Premo and Folmer play- 
ers be given an opportxinity to play 
with Kodak Office and with Hawk-Eye. 
So, fans, you see, Hawk-Eye gains in 
that we have secured the services of 
such able performers as Petroake, 
Drabinskl, Fleming and McCormick to 
bolster up our player list. 

Petroske's ability to handle 
pitchers is one of his greatest assets, 
while one neeus no inside "dope" as to 
his prowess to manufacture "Hawk-Eye 
hits" and run the bases. Prabinski is 
a fielder of note, but it is Manager 
Craib 's intention to use this star to 
fill the shoes of "Mort" Fox at 
third. Fleming and iicCormick, as 
pitchers, will shine as heavers of the 
tantalizing sphere when given the 
proper support a la Hawk-Eye. We are 
happy indeed to welcome these men in- 
to the Hawk-Eye fold. 

And, now, to return to our own 
Hawk-Eye players. In addition to the 
acquisition of the two Folmer- Century 
pitchers, Hawk-Eye has a duo of hurl- 
ers in Graham and Meerdink. Graham, 
who did such noble work in the second 
game of the city championship series, 
should prove a sore winner when he is 
called upon to take his turn On the 
mound, lieerdink, while for the most 
part Inexperienced, has demonstrated 
in praotice that he has the proper 
qualifications to become a first 
class twirler and ilanager Craib in- 
tends to develop him as the season 

With three of the four infielders 
of last year's champions to guard the 
defense in the front yard, and three 
veterams doing guard duty in the back 
yard, our position is safe from at- 
tack. Harry liocre looks better at 
first than Fred ilerkle would on the 
Hawk-Eye nine. Harry has fully re- 
covered from the injuries he re- 
ceived in the first game with Art 
in Buttons, and is ready to play the 
"hero for a day" every Saturday after- 
noon. Felerski, after a winter 
season divided between basketball and 
indoor baseball, is ready for an 
eventful session around the keystone 
sack, with Ingleby as his help-mate. 
"Ing" was one of Hawk-Eye's most 
timely hitters last year and we want 
that boy, Elmer, to start right in 
where he left off. Prentice, the 
youngest member of last year's team 
will do utility duty this year. "Ch'ook", 
as you know, is an all-around athlete 
and can take his place in. eight out 
of the nine positions on the field. 

Wiedman, Van Lare and Levine will 
again be seen as the Hawk-Eye out- 
field, liieir work in the past has 
6een praiseworthy', and we know that 

H E 




these boys oan always be depended up- 
on to field and hit as needed. 

Truly, Hawk-Eye enters the playing 
season with the brightest of prospects, 
The management and players are ready 

and will surely win the eteam- 
heated ice-box on opening day when 
they take the field all dolled up 
in the new steel-gray uniforms 
with which the members of the 
H.E.A.A. have equipped them. 


Of course you have scanned the 
suggestion awards for the six months 
ending April 30th. Maurice Grouse, of 
the Assembling Department, heads the 
list with a prize of ^166.06 on a cost- 
reduction idea pertaining to the Kodak 
Enlarging Outfit. V.lllis Richmond, of 
the same department, is next with an 
award of $15.00 for a suggestion of 
the same nature on the small sizes of 
loading fixtures. Joseph Hamy of the 
Moulding Department received ^12.00 
for bringing forward a new device for 
smoothing the brick slabs in the fur- 
naces without removing them. Frank 
Hanse of the Production Department re- 
ceived $10.00 for calling attention to 
a serious fire hazard, and the same 
amount was awarded to Adolph Nolte of 
the Maintenance and Construction De- 
partment for an idea that gives better 
results in our Japanning ovens. 

The ohove will show that Hawk-Eye 
awards can and do run into very sub- 
stantial ixns. The following prizes, 
while they are smaller, give clear 
evidence of the interest displayed in 
improving the plant and its products, 
and go further to show how worth-while 
it is for us to submit our ideas in 
suggestion form. 

Awards of $5.00 were made to 
Frances McClellan, Grace Close, John 
Dineen, Harold Foote, Harvey Putnam, 
Arthur Rapp, Clara Shone and Wilfred 
Springer. Awards of ^.00 were made 

to John Dineen and Edna Gross. 
Awards of $3.00 were made to John 
Burke, William Gibbs, Carl Hoffman 
(2), Ernest Schacter and Raymond Wall, 
Awards of $2.00 were made to Ralph 
BurhcLns, Albert Daolos, John Farrell, 
Sam Gosnell (2), Carl Hoffman, Joseph 
Huberth, Bdwin Darter (2), Albert 
Doughlin, Leo Mason, Claud Meyers and 
Herbert Wood side. Awards of $1.00 
were made to William Gibbs, Carl Hoff- 
mem (3), and Esther Meyers. 

Are you one of the thirty-one 
people who received awards? If so, 
your success should spur you on to 
continue capitalizing your ideas. 
Did you submit a suggestion that was 
not adopted? If so, you have visible 
proof above that "it can be done". If 
you haven't done it, it is simply be- 
cause you haven't struck the right 
ideas, and the next Improvement that 
occurs to you may be the right one. 
There is no favoritism in the Suggest- 
ion System and every recommendation 
is accorded full consideration. Bear 
this in mind and continue to send in 
your ideas. 

Did you think of an idea 
that someone else turned into 
money by means of a suggestion? 
Don't let it happen again. Get 
to that suggestion box as fast 
as the "no-running" rule will 
allow you, and get a copyright on 
your thoughts. 


l>lany of our gardeners will be inter- 
ested in the contest on the care of 
lawns and flower-gardens recently in- 
augurated by the flower-garden commit- 
teo of the Chamber of Commerce. As the 
competition links up with the work of 
our garden olub, there should be a 

number of Hawk-Eyetes in the race for 
the cash prizes that will be offered. 
The exhibits will be judged from the 
standpoints of tasteful arrangement, 
upkeep, artistic appearance and general

In looking throu^ the Cleveland 
Plain Dealer the other day we noticed 
a large heading on the sports page to 
the effect that "Sargent looked like a 
big leaguer. Under wiich was a pict- 
ure of "Joe" himself. Joserih is 
Detroit's chief utility infielder,and 
has appeared in a number of 
V.hen Joe get's up, so do the fans. 


A pessimist and an optimist were 
discussing life from their different 
viewpoints. "I really believe," said 
the former, "that I could make a 
better world myself." 

"Sure I" returned the optimist; 

"that's T^at we are here for. Now 

let us get to work and do it.".

Fellows, the season's here! 

On June fourth, the battle began* 
The objective is the 1921 pennant. 
General Lee Yoder has his etaff of 
officers all lined up in strategical 
positions, and the battery la better 
than ever. The field of action is 
Kodak Park, and each Saturday after- 
noon. Camera Works, Kodak Park, Hawk- 
Eye and Kodak Office will fight to 
capture the "high rung". 

This year should prove a mighty in- 
teresting one for Eastman baseball 
fans. It is hard to predict who will 
finish at the top notch. Of course, 
Kodak Park knows its team will lick 
all comers, ^wk-Eye is confident of 
copping, Kodak Office is reasonably 
sure of success, but Camera V.orka, - 
well, we prefer to adopt the policy 
of "TAait and see". Anyhow, its going 
to be some tussle, and we want to 
muster all the fans to cheer our boys 
on to victory. 

Make this a banner year for the 
Camera Works team, by giving it your 
loyal support. 

Our rejjorter in the Brass Lepart- 
ment sands us the followin/j contri- 
bution: 'lioticing in the last two 
issues of the Kodak ^'.agazlne that the 
records of e.i^jloyees service v.ere pub- 
lished, the bo^'s of ulr. Adans' depart- 
ments, while not wanting to take any 
biscuits, claim to have a record they 
are proud of." 

The iiiiployment records prove that 
seventeen men and one girl have a com- 
bined record amounting to three hun- 
dred sixty-six years.

"Herb" Collins, foreman of the 
Stores Department, has adopted a novel 
idea to boost along the suggestion 
system. His department boasts a bulle- 
tin board which definitely portrays 
"THio's TTho" among tne boys in the 
Stores. So need to sing that old song, 
"Has anybody here seen Kelly". Look 
at the board and you will see his name 
six times, once for each submitted 
suggestion that was adopted. Fifty- 
eight suggestions in one month is the 
splendid record of this go-ahead de- 
partment, notwithstanding that it is 
more difficult in the Stores Depart- 
ment to find suggestions thsm in 
mechanical departments. Let's start 
a competition to see which department 
can get the best record in submitting 

The difference between a good Job 
and a bad one is nothing-unless the 
man with a good one is a good man. 




"I am going on a little outing 
next Sundayl Mary and her friend are 
coming, and I've got it all fixed up 
■with Helen to bring along the lunch. 
Guess I'll get a Kodak an' a coupl'a 
rolls of film, and snap a few pictures 
and have'm printed up town." 

Sunday proved to be an ideal day. 
Mary and Helen made fudge - w^iich was 
a little less sugary than usual - and 
Bill had bought cigars ^ich John 
could smoke . After spreading out a 
table cloth and chasing away several 
dozen unwelcomed ants, the basket v/as 
unpacked, revealing little monuinents 
of sandwiches v^ich looked as if they 
would melt in one's mouth. There v/ere 
lettuce, and tuna fish, ajid ham, to 
say nothing of the pickles, and of the 
chocolate layer cake made by Major's 

"Let's get a snap-shot of the feed 
before we eat. John, you and Mary and 
Helen sit around the banq.uet and I'll 
take your pictures. Then I'll take 
your place and you can try your luck 
with the Kodak I " 

After lunch, as the couples were 
strolling through the woods. Bill and 
Helen - who happened to have lagged 
behind, - espied John and Mary wander- 
ing along, totally unconscious of 
surroundings or persons. "Look, Billl 
Get your camera out I There's John 
holding Mary's handt Take their pict- 
ure, and be sure and get a good one I 
Ohl Won't we kid them vihen we have the 
pictures printed." Bill hastily open- 
ed the camera and "took a chance". In 
fact, both he and the rest of the par- 
ty took several, with the result that, 
upon going for the pictures a few days 
later they were handed a few misty- 
looking prints, no record of the "feed" 
or "the hand-holding" incident. In 
fact, there was nothing to remind 
them of the picnic except two rolls of 
spoiled film. 

This is really a life-like story. 
It's actually hapi>ened to you ; per- 
haps not 77ith Mary and her friend, but 
with the "TiiBsis" and the "kiddies", 
or at the shop picnic, or on your 
vacation. In order to overcome the 
disappointment of spoiled pictures. 

and, frequently spoiled tempers, the 
Industrial Relations Department has 
instituted a Riotographic Class, under 
the leadership of Fred W. Brehm. 

The first group is now well under 
v/ay. Meetings are held after vrorking 
hours in the Committee Room, and at 
noons in the yard. In order not to 
retard those people who have advanced 
beyond a preliminary stage, and also 
to advance those who progress, the 
group is divided into two distinct 
classes. There are thirty-six men in 
Class A (Advanced) and thirty-nine men 
and women in Class B. Those members 
who have not their own cameras are 
supplied with a Kodak for ten weeks - 
the proposed duration of Class B. One 
roll of film is allowed each member, 
each week. 

After the exposures are made an 
accurate account of the shutter speed, 
q^uality of lens, condition of light, 
diaphragm stop and type of camera is 
written on the envelope containing the 
film. This film is developed in the 
Industrial Relations Department and 
afterwards judged by Mr. Brehm. The 
examination of film and constructive 
criticism as to -vihy the pictures are 
not a success is a valuable asset to 
the amateur photographer. Mr. Brehm 
holds office hours for this purpose 
on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12:30 to 
1:15 o'clock. On fine days the fact- 
ory yard is used for demonstrating 
photographic facts and all class mem- 
bers are urged to attend. 

V/hile both classes are under the 
directorship of "Fred" Brehm, it is 
planned to have the advanced Class 
formulate their own schedule. At a 
recent meeting, 7/illiam Whincup was 
elected as Chairman of Class A. Many 
ideas are being put into action, and 
competitions covering views, architect- 
ure, portraits, and nature studies will 
be held in the near future. 

Particular attention is being paid 
to Class B. members. There is no 
question that the numerous failures 
among photogi'aphers are due to the 
lack of the fundamental principles. 
It's so easy to get a camera and film, 
locate the subject in the view finder. 



M A 3 A Z I M E 


press the trigger on the shutter, paiy 
a sniall sum to have the roll developed 
and printed up-to-OTi, and - expect 
pictures - providing vou know how to 
eet them. 

How many people can accurately 
judge distances? It's very important 
to gauge the distance bet-ireen six, 
eight, ten, fifteen, and twenty-five 
feet. This is y&i&t a focusing scale is 
for; each distatnce is conveniently 
marked, according to depth of focus, 
which assures you clear pictures pro- 
viding you use the scale correctly. At 
a distajice-guessing competition it was 
proven that not ten percent, of the 
class had a clear conception of com- 
puting a given linear measure. Arthur 
Chippendale of Class A proved to be 
the most correct, having exactly half 
the distances computed rightly. Follow- 
ing him was Arthur Santay of Class B. 
with forty percent, to his credit, and 
Gladys L'.orse, Halph Hand ley and Frank 
Schantz running tie for third place. 

Another cause of failure is not us- 
ing the view-finder correctly. Taking 
pictures vertically instead of horizon- 
tally or vice versa, axjcoimts for many 
a subject being beheaded or walking on 
legs Instead of feet. 

Exposure. Possibly the greatest 
stumbling block to amateur photography 
is undertimed pictures, Quality of 
li^t is essential knowledge '.^ich 
accounts for success or fail-ore. The 
shutter is made to work at ;five speeds, 
in conjunction with the diaphragm 
\*iich has six openings of standard size. 
Do you know the relationship between 
the shutter speed and the diaphragu 
opening. All these things are posi- 
tively important and are being taught 
to class members. 

The first films submitted for exam- 
ination proved Christie Gox to be high 
man in Class A, he receiving sixty per- 
cent, tabulation. In Class B, Arthur 
Santay haxi the best idea of picture 
taking and received sixty points plus. 
Members are urged to bring in their 
films on Monday morning, if possible, 
and call for them Friday afternoon. 

Several applications are on file 
awaiting the commencement of the sec- 
ond class. Those employees wishing to 
take advantage of the splendid opj or- 
tiuiity to learn real photography 
should register as soon as possible. 
It is anticipated that the second class 
v/ill rapidly fill to capacity. 


Another one of the Camera Works 
fainous "get-together" meetings took 
place on '.Vednesday, May 11th, at -w^iich 
superintendents, fore men, and employees* 
representatives sat dov;n to enjoy a 
splendid supper served by our ovai 
culinary department in the usual 
appetizing style, llr, Robertson v/as, 
as always, a genial and humorous chair- 
man, and between laughter, community 
singing-led by Leslie Haranond - ajid 
Dossenbach's Orchestra, everybody 
thoroughly enjoyed the affair, 

"Jack" Robertson, "Charlie" Rogers, 
and Frank O'Brien each gave their 
views regarding the Community Chest 
Drive and each man explained the sub- 
ject from different angles of thouc^t. 
If there v/as one person in the crowd 
who was* not entirely "sold" on the 
idea of organized charity when he 
entered the dining room, he certainly 


left the meeting in a different frame 
of mind. All indications pointed to 
the Camera '.Vorks doing its full share 
for a worthy cause. And it did. 

We had the pleasure of having, among 
others, two important officers of the 
company as guests at the speakers' 
table - Mr, James S, Havens, head of 
the Legal Departnient and jlr, Lewis B, 
Jones, head of the Advertising Depart- 
ment, Mr, Havens expressed h:lmself in 
a concise, friendly, little talk, as 
also did Mr, Jones, who gave us an 
outline on the mysteries of advertis- 
ing, and a broad idea of the trade 
publications v/hich help sell our pro- 

The Mieeting was acclai:3ed a great 
success and v« eagerly look for\'rard 
to a repetition.

Baseball taloes "pep". The players 
must have it, and the fans must have 
it. Where do we at Kodalc Park stand 
on this baseball question this season? 
Again this year, v/e will be represent- 
ed in the Kodak League. This is the 
third season, and we still have our 
first pennant to win. With a larger 
body to choose from, our team should be 
the best. For the sa^ie reason, our sup- 
port should be the strongest, our fans 
the most enthusiastic. If numbers 
count for anything, the pennant belongs 
to Kodak Park. Do your part to win it. 
If you don't play, get back of the boys 
^1*10 do and let's 7/IN. Season tickets 
good for a seat in the stand or bleach- 
ers are on sale for $1.00. These are 
for tv/enty-four games, an average of a 
few mills over four cents per game. If 
you have not obtained one, call the 
K.P.A.A. office and they will see that 
you receive it in short order. And 

this means that you are helping us win 
that pennant. 

Manager Bircher reports that our old 
stand-by, "Chuck"Forstbauer was one of 
the first men to report. Our good- 
natured, heavy-hitting pitcher deserv- 
es a lot of credit from Kodak Park 
players and fans, for he has been our 
most loyal player over a period of 
several years, always dependable and 
ready to do anything for the Park. 
Among other players of last year's 
team who have reported to date are 
Gallagher, vVedel,Minella,Heaney, "Doc" 
Z8enan,Coogan,aLnd Shepanski. Among the 
new men who look good are Holland, Don- 
ovan, Weigand, Ratzel and Underwood. 

There are still a niimber of good 
men in the plant and they are urged to 
report to Llanager Bircher and help the 
Park to the top. 


A fair number of very good pic- 
tures have been entered in the Second 
Semi -Annual Contest of the Kodak Park 
Camera Club and are on exhibition in 
the Assembly Hall. The pictures are 
to be judged shortly after June 1st 
and the names of the prize wimiers 
will appear in the Kodak Magazine. 

Plans for the completion of the 
now dark rooms for the use of the 
members are progressing and it is 
expected that they will be ready for 
fall £w3tivities. The Club has sub- 
scribed to practically all the 
leading Photographic Magazines 
which are available at the Library in 
Building 3. These contain valuable in- 
formation which will help you to a 
great extent. Look them over. 

Plans for the Annual Outing were 
also discussed, and the Committee h"as 
decided to hold it at Durand-Eastman 
Park during June. 


The exact date for the outing, a 
basket picnic in all probability has 
not been set as yet, but a word now, 
announcing the fact that it is to be, 
will serve to ansv/er the numerous in- 
qxiiries regarding it. Dr.Reid is 
selecting the Chairmen for the differ- 
ent committees. 

Watch the bulletin boards I DOH'T 
MISS THE OUTING'. Decide now to be 
there: Don't miss a good time!

You may advocate physical eiercise, 
' or gymnasium classes, but very seldom 
can you find a group of people who v/ill 
conscientiously follow out such a pro- 
gram l,ong enough to derive any partic- 
ular benefit. '.Vhen v/e discuss this 
subject, 7/e all seem to agree that it 
is a fine thing. Nearly everyone has 
some particular kind of exercise v/hioh 
he claims to be the ideal, talks about 
it, explains the benefits, but seldcff- 
takes it himself. No doubt this is 
human. It is work for most people, 
and, as there is no one to make us do 
it, and 7/0 do not feel particularly 
unfit, what's the use ? 

The value of such light systematic 
exercise and fresh air is thoroughly 
appreciated by the girls of the 
D. 0. ?. Packing Department. So much 
so that every morning at 10.30, and 
again the afternoon at 3,30, when the 
weather permits, between 120 and 130 
girls aidjoum to the lawn north of 
Building 42 'jvhere they are given from 
six to ten minutes of calisthenics un- 
der the direction of Robert Caine. 
They return to ,7ork rested and full of 
ambition. Although this is not com- 
pulsory, practically all the girls re- 
port every day, and are disappointed- 
if it is not possible to conduct the 
class. This is Just one mora' v/ay of 
making conditions at Kodak Park as near 
ideal as possible. 


The final standing of the teams in 
the K. P. A. A. Departmental Basketball 
League shov/s Department 50 in first

it for the pure love of the game. Dur- 
ing tae entire season, only twice were 
they defeated, 391 points were scored 
in all against 173 by their opponents, 
the most liberal contributor being 
James '.Veigand, who accounted for 57 
field baskets and 42 fouls r,aking a 

total of 156 points, or an average of 
better than ten points per game. Kock.- 
castlo, Stephenson, J. Gallagher, and 
McCarthy also did v;ell on the scoring

By winning three. straight in the 
final match of the K. P. A. A. Bowling 
League, the Indians held their lead, 
and finished in first place for the 
season of 1920-21, incidentally annex- 
ing the pennant, and the grand prize of 
$25.00. Ihe Indians, Blue Ribbons, 
Building 30, Hone Brews, and Building 
25 have been bunched during the great- 
er part of the season, and the final 
outcome depended on the last two weeks' 
results. iVank Janson of the Carpent- 
er Shop, 7/ho deserves much of the cred- 
it for the showing .T.ade by the Indians, 
carried off first honors in the individ-

the high three games rolled in any one 
match during the season.

The last Dinner-lie e ting of tne 
Kodak Park Foremen's Club for the 
season of * 1920-21 was held in Build- 
ing 28 on Thursday, Llay 12th, and 
proved a fitting climax for this 
"live wire" organization. Raymond 
Amot, one of pLOChester's most promi- 
nent attorneys and speakers, address- 
ed the Club, his subject being, "The 
Administration of President V/arren G. 
Harding. " 

The usual excellent music ren- 
dered under the direction of Ha.ssell 
Ives, while the members were enter- 
tained in fine style during the dinner 
by "Hart's Comedy Revue". This act 

presentea a number of the latest 
offerings of the theatrical world. 
A vote of appreciation was extend- 
ed to President John Schaeffer, James 
Ward, James Hart, Fred Grastorf and 
Spencer Kord for their efforts in 
making these monthly meetings enjoy- 

A Comsiittee is now at work on the 
plans for the Club's Annual S'jmmer 
Outing. Popular opinion favors an- 
other boat trip, and, from indica- 
tions at present, one will be airrang- 
ed for the latter part of July. 
Ample notice will be given to fore- 
stall other engagements. 


Thirty years ago this month, llay 
6th, to be exact, Claude E. VanKouten 
was first employed in the Construction 
Department of what was then known as 
the Eastman Company. During this 
time, he has seen Kodak park grow 
from a few buildings to its 
present size, having taken an act- 
ive part in the development of 
the V/orks in the capacity of Assist- 
ant Superintendent of Construction. 

Llr. VanHouten possesses a v.onder- 
ful memory for details and instances 
v.hich have occurred during his term 
of employment. He has been called up- 
on at many times to verify things 
which most of us have practically for- 

V,"e congratulate Mr. VanHouten on his 
thirtieth anniversary, and hope that he 
will be with us for many years to come. 





On April 23rd, P. S. V.'ilcox, 
fonner Aesistajit Manager of the Kodak 
Pari Works, bade a final farewell to 
his office at the Park and left to 
take \xp at Klngsport, Tennessee, his 
duties as General iianager of the 
Tennessee Kastman Corporation* 

Mr. Wilooz was bom at Mexico, 
Oswego County, New York, where he at- 
tended the district sohool. He atten- 
ded High Sohool at Syracuse, and later 
graduated from Cornell Dhiversity with 
the class of 1897. His first position 
was with Swift & Company at the Union 
Stock Yard, Chicago; he was later 
transferred to their plant at St. 
Joseph, Missouri. In December 1898, 
Mr. D. De Lancey, at that time Manager 
of Kodak Park, engaged Mr. I'iloox as 
a draughtsman. Two years later, he 
was made Superintendent of the Boll 
Coating Department where the roll 
support or film base is manufactured. 
In 1906, he was advanced to the 
position of Assistant Llanager of Kodak 

Park. LIT. Wilcox was also Treasurer 
and 'Tiinion" of the Kodak Park Super- 
intendents' Lunch Club from 1911 until 
1920, when he was succeeded by Charles 
F. Hutchison. 

In June, 1920, the liastman Kodak 
Company p'orchased the plant of 
the Kingsport Wood Reduction Company, 
which had been erected by the govern- 
ment during the war for the manufact- 
ure of alcohol and acetone. Mr. 
V.ilcox was made Vice-President and 
Director of the Corporation, as 
well as the General Manager of 
the Works, which now consists of 
370 acres. Kingsport is located 
in the eastern part of Tennessee, 
and is one of the live indus- 
trial towns of the South. Mr. Wilcox 
has taken up his residence at Kings- 
port, but will retain a branch 
office at Rochester. 

We wish him much success. 



So far, Kodak Park has the distinction 
(t) of having the lowest percentage 
of subscribers to the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association of any of the 
Rochester factories. This is unusual 
for Kodak Park, for we as a rule lead 
the way in all things wherein the spir- 
it of conipetition enters. The Associ- 
ation has many features, which should 
appeal to us, but first and last is 
that of Thrift or Saving. Perhaps you 
already own a heme, or, if not, do not 
wish to purchase or build at the pres- 
ent time. Later on, you may. INVEST 
in a few shares NOW, and, when the 
time arrives, you will have a nio« 
little sum accumulated to use toward 
it. And, in the meantime your shares 
are paying you good interest. Put 
yo'ur money to work. 

Perhaps you have not given this 
opportunity seriO'os consideration. 

you may not be familiar with the 
pletn. In other words, your en- 
thusiasm has not been aroused. Learn 
more about it. Thinkl One 
dollar per week deducted from your 
pay envelope buys four shares of 
stock entitling you to Four Hundred 
Dollars at the date of maturity in a 
little over six years. A larger in- 
vestment, of course, means a larger 
return although the rate of interest 
and dividends is the same, it being 
only a question of the amount sub- 
scribed. Subscriptions as low as 
25^ per week are accepted; this buys 
one share. 

If you wish to know more about the 
Association, inquire either of your 
foreman. Pay Roll Department or R. A. 
Weber, Building 26. Application cards 
may be obtained from the above upon 
request. Think it over, then INVEST. 

Experience must be paid for, and only 
a foolish man buj'S the same kind twice. 

Don't condemn yourself to yourself; 
others will do that for you. 







Before the opening of the regular 
season the Kodak Park Soooer team 
played two exhibition games, the first 
with the Celtics which finished a tie, 
each teswi scoring 2 goals, while in 
the second encounter our boys defeat- 
ed the Holland F.C. 8 to 3. At the 
present writing, only one League game 
has been played, that against the 
Camera Works* team, *hich ended one 
all. This game showed us that we need 
to play together a little more before 
the maximum of team work will be ac- 

S. Ackroyd of the Camera V.'orks* 
team has signed up to play with Kodak 
Park In the Northwestern competition 
and, at the position of fullback, 
should greatly strengthen oar team 
and increase our chances of winning. 

At a recent meeting, D. Allardice 
was elected Captain for this season, 
and William MoKnight Vice-Captain. 
Meetings are being held every Tuesday 
evening at 8 o'clock in the Assembly 
Hall, and all persons interested in 
this sport are invited to attend. 

On April 11th, Frank Hall of the 
Sheet Metal Department celebrated his 
Golden V.'edding and on the following 
day, Tuesday, the 13th, he passed an- 
other milestone on the path of life, 
this being his 72nd. Despite the 
fact that Frank has attained better 
than the allotted three score and ten 
years, he is well and hearty and an 
able and oonscientioos employee. Al- 
though he has only been on the Kodak 
Park payroll as foreman of the Sheet 
Metal Department for thirteen years, 
he has been at the Plant almost 
thrice this length of time, having 
done the sheet metal work for the 
Eastman Company for over thirty-five 

Frank was presented with a 
beautiful basket of roses by his 
fellow E. & LI. foremen. He also 
received a purse of gold from the em- 
ployees of the Sheet Metal Department, 
expressing the esteem in which he is 
held by the men who work under him. 

We extend o\xr congratulations to 
Mr. and Mrs. Hall on these momentous 
occasions, and wish them many more 
years of happiness. 



Of late it seems that the onoe 
greatest of hobbies, stamp collecting, 
is due for a come-back, at least this 
impression may be gained from the num- 
ber of inquiries received from those 
interested, at the Park. 

It has been suggested that a "stamp 
club" be formed to meet once each month

On Thursday, May 5, 1921, George 
W. Howell completed his thirtieth 
year of service v/ith the Eastman 
Kodak Company. 

As Superintendent of the Envelope, 
Carton and Printing Departments, Mr. 
Howell has built up an organization 
which ranks with the best in product- 
ion and efficiency, and is one in 
which he can well take pride. 

The employees presented Mr. Howell 
with a beautiful testimonial in bock 
form, containing the signatures of 
all the dejjartment employees. V.e 
join in congratulating Mr. Howell 
on this day, and wish him many 
more years of success and happi- 

It is easy to quit cold in 
face of defeat-it takes a hero 
smile and try again.

Pour Kodak Teams under the Wire in Eace for 1921 Pennant 

Baseball fans in all six plants of 
the company waited eagerly for June 4th 
and the 19;il Opening Day of the Eastman 
Kodak Baseball League on the Kodak Park 
diamond. The league this year has 
been formed with four competing teams, 
instead of six as in previous seasons. 
The rearrangement is expected to make 
the Kodak circuit a faster and stronger 
aggregation tkian heretofore. Folmer- 
Century and Premo will not be represent- 
ed by League teams this year. The 
players of these plants have, however, 
been given the privilege of playing 
with either Hawk-Eye or Kodak Office. 
An Opening Day Committee, comprised of 
Herbert 3. Thorpe, Camera Works, Chair- 
man; "Jerry" 'ifelles, Kodak Park, and 
Eaymond '.Vail, Hawk-Eye, vras appointed 
by H. D. Haight, President of the League. 
This Committee made arrangements for the 
appearance of officers of the company to 
participate in the usual ceremonies just 
before the opening game between Hawk-Eye 
and Camera '.'/orks. 

The season tickets covering admission 
to all games have been going rapidly in 
all the plants, and the indications are 
that attendance records will be broken 
this summer at Kodak Park, as well as at 
Baseball Park. This is surely goitxg to 
be a big year I'or baseball. 

The Kodak Park diamond has received 
considerable attention from Caretaker 
Delos {"Sid") Sidman, who promises to 
keep the Lake Avenue field in go If- green 
shape throughout the twelve weeks of the 
season. Another feature of the League 
games this summer v/ill be a big, new 

Sizing up the four contenders as they 
start down the stretch this season, they 
look about as follows; 

Hawk-Eye still retains most of last 
season's outfit, which, you will remem- 
ber, battled its way to the City In- 
dustrial Championship. In addition, 
they have snared some of the likeliest- 
looking talent from the CJraflex team of 
1920. The choicest morsel of the Hawk- 
Eye haul is by all odds "Pat" Petroske, 
who, clouted for an averaige of .608 with 
the Century team last season. "Pat" is 
a veteran catcher, whose annexation will 
do much to fill the gap caused by the 
loss of ex-captain Allan Peterson, who 
is no longer with the St. Paul Street 
plant. Other recruits signed by Hawk- 
Eye from the I'olmer teaim are "Jack" 
Fleming, a big pitcher formerly v/ith 
the General Railway Signal, and "Katt" 
llcCormick, who twists them over with 
his left wing. With these new players, 
Yanager J. Russel Craib expects to coast 
right along through to another pennant. 
"Doc's" veterans include Harry Koore, 
Captain "Stximp" Wiedman, Prentice, ^1- 
erski. Van Lare, Ingleby, Levine, and 
Graham. Tv/o new faces in the Hawk-Zye 
line-up are John V.eerdink, and Raymond 

Lee Yoder, veteran pilot of the Cam- 
era tVorks team, has been plugging away 
at the formation of his squad in his 
usual aggressive fashion, and is spon- 
sor for the claim that Camera V,'orks v/ill 
have the best team on record. Yoder 
has practically all of his 1920 outfit 
to build on, and few changes are looked 
for. With four pitchers of the calibre 
of Pressley, Kivell, Kline, and Rutan to 
call upon, the Camera V/orkers .vill doubt- 
less put a crimp in batting- averages. 
Yoder, with sagacious modesty, refused 
to make any predictions, merely saying: 
"Just wait and see." 

The Kodak Park contenders will again

be handled by Harold Bircher, long ao- 
knov/ledged as one of the best players 
the B.idge Road plant has ever turned 
out. Bircher is the type of player 
■f/ho specialises in clean and heady 
baseball, and his hitting has won many 
games for the film naJcers. Bircher 
states that he has twice as many candi- 
dates for the team as in any previous 
year, and he expects to introduce the 
pennant to the sacred confines of Kodailc 
Parle before snow flies again. 

To Walter Hardy, a former college 
player, falls the taslc of selecting a 
team to represent Kodak Office. Ko- 
dak Office has alv/ays been a dark horse 
in the Eastman League, and this year 
seems no exception to the rule. "Walt" 
v/ill undoubtedly be a playing manager, 
holding down the third sack. He can 
also take a turn on the mound in a 
pinch. Several of last year's team 
already seem certain of positions, not- 
ably "Dutch" Irwin, the veteran back- 
stop, and "loddy" Diehl, the League's 
premier striice-out artist. Kanager 
Hardy is banking considerably upon the 
expected influx of college men who 
usually spend their summers under the 
shadow of the sixteenth floor. Among 
these are the Ogden brothers, and 
"Hank" Rohrer. Hardy has also taken 
advantage of the invitation rule to be- 
speak the services of George Texter, 
infielder and catcher from Premo; Sul- 
livan and llura, also from the South 
Street plant, and Drabinski, Willar, 
and Jawer of Folmer-Century. 

All in all, these four teams are ex- 
ceptionally well matched, and it seems 
a safe prediction that the League v/ill 
be stronger, competition keener, and 
the interest and attendance greater 
taan during amy of the two previous 


Keep your eyes open for the 
new scoreboard at Kodak Park. 
This board will be the only one 
of its kind in Rochester, It 
v/ill show the score of both 
games by inniiigs, as v/ell as 
the outs, strikes, and balls at 
any stage of the game. 

Mosher Bggert appears in the 
Kodak Office iine-up for 1921. 
This lad won fame with the Lit- 
tle Giants in the Municipal 
League. He is a right-hander 
who plays shortstop and can take 
his turn in the box, if necess- 
ary. He is also a hard hitter. 

Kodak Park has a line-up of 
veteran stickers, with big 
"Chuck" Porstbauer at the top 
of the list. The Parkers were 
in the thick of the scrap all 
last season, and erf>ect to win 
their first pennant this year. 

If you y/ant to see real base- 
ball brains, just keep your 
weather eye peeled on Harry 
Moore, Hawk-Eye's initial sack- 
er. This veteran learned most 
of the tricks v/hile his present 
teajn-raates were playing in the 
Kindergarten League. 

"Joe" Stutz, the taffy-hair- 
ed guard of the Kodak Office 
basketball team, also appears 
in the diamond line-up of the 
State Streeters. He plays 
first base and the outfield. 

Lee Yoder has an ace up his 
sleeve for the Camera Works 
team in the person of a new 
catcher, Preudenv/oll, who, ac- 
cording to the advance "dope", 
bears all the ear-marks of a 
second Schang. 

The Hawk-Eye nine, in addi- 
tion to its League activities, 
is planning a venture into the 
small-time circuit. llanager 
Craib is arranging a schedule 
of Sunday games with out-of- 
town teams.

There are some physic iaris in Roch- 
ester who Imve persistently opposed 
great conr.ranity health oeneiits v.ith 
the feeble minded arg'onient that such 
move.Tients were taking dollars irOiTi 
their pockets, as is v.itnessad by tne 
lack of suiport for the Tonsil and 
Adenoid Clinic. 

There are ether physicians v.ho are 
too indifferent, too lazy or too incom- 
petent to properly diagnose disease, 
and v.ho have allov<-ed their patients to 
drift almost beyond hujnan aid in con- 
sequence, --i-ll of these, mind you, are 
of the so called ethical class ; blatant 
advertising fakirs can r;-.ore readily be 

One bad apple will contaminate a 
barrel of good frait ; tiiese inen are 
rotten spots in our corainunity. 

Rotten spotsl Here are two examnles : 

A certain member of our organization 
was taken ill with pleurisy, which later 
developed into eiapyeiva. He was taken to 
a hospital where he reirained for seven 
weeks. During this period, he was not 
attended by his family physician as he 
was a v/ard patient. This, however, is 
the usual hospital custom, and his care 
was of the best. Eventually, this man 
was removed to his hone where he was 
visited weekly by one of our staff 
nurses who t;as not satisfied with the 
progress he was making towards recovery. 

At a later date she was informed 
that the patient's family phj'sician 
had advised tne patient to remain av/ay 
from work for at least six months. 

The patient's fa^ly physician was 
then asked by O-u* n irse if the man was 
not suffering: from tuberculcsis and ho 
roplied that tiiere was net tne slignt- 
est doubt of it. The man had not 
been informed that hj was suffering 

from tuberculosis, was not told^that 
he should remain in bed when runnin^; 
a temperature, and no precautions 
whatever had been taken to prevent the 
spread of the disease in the family 
which includes two small children. 

Some two years ago, a young v. Oman 
in OUT employ was bothered by a more 
or less persistent anu irritating cougii. 
She consulted her family physician who 
prescribed some one of the oommon 
remedies lor such ailments; the 
cough persisted but at no time was any 
real attem^^t made to ascertain if 
there any deep-eeated cause. 
Finally her fellcv* workers became 
alarmea at her condition and the 
danger to them from working in close 
association with her. The case was re- 
ported to cur I'.edical department ana 
she was requested to submit,, to a 
thorough examination. To her dismay, 
she was found to be sui'ferinf; from a 
well-advanced case of tuberculosis. 

Both patients should have had a 
thorough examination and should have 
been tactfully inu'ormed as to their 
true condition so that immediate and 
proper methods could have oeen insti- 
tuted to fight the disease and, if 
possible, arrest its pror^ress and 
prevent its snread to other members 
Of the family. 

The cases above are com^iaratively 
mild examples of incompetence or 
neglect and many others more fla-rrant 
can be cited. 

Isn't it time to wake up and pay 
at least as much attention to the 
selection of a phj'sician as is given 
to tne purciiase of a nev/ record for 
the talking machine*? 

Tliere are many reputable, skilled 
conscientious and hard working 
physicians in Roo^.ester and ■*« know

that v.'e will have their co-operation 
in eliminating these rotten spots. 

The fair minded f^eneral practi- 
tioner in medicine v/ill admit that he 
is not in all cases corapetent to make 
a proper diagnosis. 2uch a man v.lll 
when in slightest doabt reier the 
patient to a specialist for further 
examination or treatment. Such men are 
an honor and a credit to the medical 

When you find it necessary to con- 
sult a physician, make sure that yoa 
select a competent one. Your ailment 
may or may not be a trifling one ; 
insist on a thorough examination and 
a trutlii'ol answer as to your condition. 

Gocd health is your greatest indi- 
vidual asset ; it is of eoual impor- 
taaice as an asset in any organization 
or coramimity. Recognition of this 

fact has leu to the formation of medi- 
cal departments in many comr,ierGial 
organizations vata highly successful 

Our Lleaical Leoartnent has been 
organized and equipped in line v.ith 
this movement . in effect its purpose 
may be said to be that of a health 
clearing house. Aside from rendering 
first aid in employees surgical cases, 
and in the treatment of minor ailments, 
its purpose is to co-operate with the 
medical fraternity of the city in 
maintaining the highest possible health 
average among our employees and their 

The "edical department is at the 
service of every Kodak employee with- 
out charge. If your case presents 
^unusual conditions or deraands special 
treatment, you will be referred to a 
n'umber of physicians v.ho are knov.n to 
be corapetent to handle your case. 


All too frec^uently during the summer 
months the daily papers record accident- 
al deaths from drowning. 

S7d.mming is an art easily learned, 
even by those well along in years, vshile 
children almost without exception take 
to it naturally. 

If you do not kiiow how to swim, make 
it a point to learn hov/ this suamer, and 
if you have children, by all means see 
to it that they learn to handle them- 
selves in the vater. 

Regular instructors in sv/imming VTill 
be found at the Y. LI. C. A., the Athlet- 
ic-Glut, the Y. V/. C. A., and the Brick 
Church Institute here in the city and at 
most of the beaches. 

You can easily learn by yourself in 
shallow water through the aid of an old 
partly inflated inner tube to sustain 
you until you attain confidence in your- 
self, but you will naturally learn much 

sooner if you have an instructor; 

anyhow, by all means learn how this sum- 

You 07« this to yourself for your own 
protection, and you never can tell vhen 
jfour ability to swim may er-able you to 

save the life of another person. 

Again; have you ever seen a limp 

body brou^t ashore, and been compelled 
to stand helplessly by because you and 
none of the others present knew \'diat to 
do to revive the patient ? 

MaJiy, many lives could have been sav- 
ed if some one at hand had known the 
very simple standard, method of reviving 
a sTiffocated person. 

On page 8 • ^^ ^.re printing an au- 
thorative communication from Dr. "I, A. 
Sawyer, the Medical Director of the 
company, on this subject; read it by 
all means carefully and be pre- 
pared in case your services are needed. 


While the outdoor picnic luncneon is 
an excellent thing from the health sf.and- 
point, a word of warning should be said 
regarding the use of v.ater from wayside 
springs or farm v;ells. The former, ex- 
cept in very isolated regions are almost 
sure to be dangerously poluted, while 
the farm well is often situatea toe near 
a barnyard. The only safe rule is to 
carry an adequate supply of water from 
a source known to be pure. 





Sijbsoribers to the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association, in ohecking up 
their quarterly statement, dated July 
2nd, should hear in mind the following: 
if employed at Kodak Park, the last pay 
roll deduction for shares credited is 
for the week ending June 18th; if em- 
ployed at any of the othor Rochester 
plants or tlie Kodak Office, the last 
pay-roll deduction for shares credited 
is for the week ending June 25th. 

Onoe again; before signing a purchase 
agreement, he sure to submit it to the 
Attorney of the Association for approv- 
al; or, better still, obtain from him 
one of our standard forms of purchase 
agreement (si5)plied withoat charge) for 
filling out, and then submit it to him 
for approval before signing. 

This •will take but a moment, and may 
save you time, money, and annoyance.

The Silent Partner 




EVEN such comnon household necessi- 
ties as salt, sugar, flour, and soap do 
not sell themselves, and every manufac- 
turer of such products has to have an 
aggressive sales department to put them 

Our products have a world-wide repu- 
tation and distribution, and it would 
"be pretty hard to locate a town vdaei-e- 
in sonievAiere the familiar "Kodaks" sign 
would not be found.. 

Without question, the hi^ equality 
and uniformity of our products has help- 
ed in obtaining this world-wide distrib- 
ution, but this quality has been backed 
always by forceful and never-ending ad.- 
▼ertising and selling cainpaigns. 

Our sales depaxtment in Rochester at- 
tends to the marketing of our products 
in the United States and to a certain 
portion of our export trade. 

To expedite our viiolesale distribu- 
tion, we have branch houses in New 
York, Chicago, and San Francisco, but 
we do not distribute throu^ vftiolesale 
houses, commonly known as jobbers. 

There is naturally an excellent rea- 
son for this, and that is that sensitiz- 
ed goods such as plates, film, and pho- 
tographic paper deteriorate if improper- 
ly stored and after a certain length of 

It is hi^ly important that the con- 
sumers receive our products in perfect 
condition, and it is for this reason 
that we keep our goods imder our con- 
trol as far as possible. 

Not so m^y years ago, we had practi- 
cally only two classes of consvimers, the 
professional studio and view photograph- 
er, and the amateur. 

Today, hov;ever, photography is play- 
ing a highly important part in the 
sciences, and in research and record 
work incident to tha production of a 
wide vairiety of things. 

Then, too, there is the motion pic- 
ture industry; grown to hiige proportions 

within the last few years; and all of 
these concerns looking to us to supply 
their wants. 

So, today, the staff of our sales 
department, both in the office and on 
the road., includes a goodly number of 
hi^ly-trained specialists, 

OTir road force is divided broadly in- 
to three groups; one group selling Ko- 
daks and other cameras of our manufac- 
t\ire, and the multitude of s\mdries used 
by the amateur photographer. The sale 
of our professional apparatus is in charge 
of one man who specializes in this work. 
The second group consists of our plate 
and portrait film demonstrators— —all 
highly-skilled n^n, viho call on the pro- 
fessional users of these products, and 
assist them in every possible way in se- 
curing the best possible results. The 
third group embraces the paper demon- 
strating staff, likewise highly-trained 
men vdio visit our professional custom- 
ers in the interest of the various pho- 
tographic papers manufactured by us. 

Vyfe have also other road men who speo- 
ialize in the needs of the X-ray, surg- 
ical, and research photographers; in 
the special wants of those conducting 
plants for amateur finishing, and still 
another group looking after the motion 
picture producers. 

Thou^ a distinct, and separately- 
managed and maintained organization, our 
Advertising Department is in enthusias- 
tic and harmonious accord with the Sales 
Department in creating new business, and 
in the maintaining and increasing of oilr 
volume of sales. 

You are all more or less familiar 
with our magazine and newspaper adver- 
tising, and have seen and read many of 
the booklets issued by this department, 
and encountered the "Picture Ahead" 
signs to be found along our picturesque 

In addition to all this creative 
future business v/ork, the sales depart- 
ment is still further aided by the pub- 
lication of four periodicals, the first 
of Triaich is the Kodak Trade Circular, 


which is of a confidential nature, and 
sent only to dealers handling our goods. 

It contains annoimcements of new 
goods, changes in prices and discounts, 
Mnf^ other live natter incident to the 
sale of our products. 

The second is the "Kodak Salesman", 
vdiich is sent each month to our dealyrs, 
and to such of tlieir employees as the 
dealer elects. This publication is 
directly in the aid of the man behind 
the cotinter. It is carefully and 
cheerfully written and edited, and with- 
out doubt has much to do with keeping 
the retail salesman "sold" on us, and 
in wiiat we produce. 

It is obvious .that, even v/ith our 
large force of road men, we cannot call 
on every professional photographer reg- 

ularly, and in some of the more isolat- 
ed regions, perhaps not at all. So, 
to keep the professional in toucn with 
us, and informed as to any new products 
of ours, and the best methods for han- 
dling them, and how to solve some of 
his other problems, we issua monthly for 
him a sumptuous little publication chris- 
tened "Studio Li^t." 

Our fourth monthly aid to sales is 
"Kodakery," a brl^t, snappy, and won- 
derfully well-illustrated little publi- 
cation, issued solely in the interests 
of oar friend, the amateur, and it 
re acnes about two hundred and sizty-five 
thousand amateurs each month. 

So, you see that with us, selling 
goods means ^uite a bit more than just 
waiting for orders, and tlien shipping 
the goods. 



Every once in a vdiile eone one re- 
vives the chain letter idea, usually 
for soma worthy cause, (we received one 
a few days ago) without ever figuring 
out just ■wiiat it would amottnt to. Have 
you ever stopped to figure it out ? If 
you have, any chain letter you received 
went Into your waste basket instanter. 

Here is how a chain letter, supposed 
to be sent out alv/ays to five persons, 
would work out: 

The first letter goes to five 


Second to 25. 

Third to 125. 

Fourth to 525. 

Fifth to 3,125. 

Siith to 15,625. 

Seventh to 68,125. 

Ei^th to 240,625. 

Ninth to 1,703,125. 

Tenth to 8,515,625. 

If followed up to the fifteenth ser- 
ies, it would be 26,611,328,125. The 

total 33,264,162,655 — -would be more 

than three hundred letters to every n:an, 
woman and child of the one hxmdred and 

ten millions of our population. So

Things are still at sixes and sevens; 
the print«3rs won't print; the carpenters 
•won't carp; the electricians won't e- 
leot; the plumbers won't plumb; and the 

steel workers won't steel but that 

will be about all of that. An.T^ow, here 
w© are again, thanks to typewriters, nim- 
ble and willing fingers, and the photo 
engraving process. 

The mechanical side came a bit easier 
this time, because we learned a lot in 
building the June issue, but we had a 
stru^le getting in just about half of 
the things we wanted to include. 

It is not our intention to discuss 
the differences existing in industry, but 
we can, and do hope that they will soon 
be settled, because, not until they are 
settled can we feel that v/e, as a nation, 
are again on the road to normal times 
and healthy prosperity.

that he did not think that he ^/ould re- 
main v.'ith the company much longer, be- 
cause raises and promotions were, to his 
mind, a bit too infrequent. We told him 
that v/e felt that he h^d the wrong idea, 
sind that ovir organization presented as 
many, if not more, opportiznities for ad- 
vancement, than almost any other concern. 

He countered with the Parthian shot 
that, how come, as v/e had been with the 
company a good many years, we had not 
been made a director, or vice-president, 
or sich like. 

We caiae back v/ith tie remark that, if 
all of us bri^t shining li^ts had been 
made directors, there wouldn't have been 
anyone left to perform the more lowly 

tasks and then the directors wouldn't 

have had anything, or anybodv, to direct. 

To be honest, every !nan viio has lived 
long enou^ to ac^iuire a few gray hairs 
knows just why his measure of success, or 
laujk of it, has been meted out. Very 
fev/ of us can say truthfully that we have 
been blocked because of lack of opportun- 
ity. We were all created free, but not 

equal some authorities to the contrary 

notwithstanding. The person with the 
greater mental capacity, the greater am- 
bitiort, or the greater will power will 
get further than those less strongly en- 
dowed with these attributes. 

iiome of us, to ourselves, are quite 
surprised to find that we have pushed 
along so well. "Nov/ and then, perhaps, 
but the instances aire about as rare as 
hair on a frog, we find a man doing a 
task so well that his superior hesitates 
to advance him to other more important 
work. The far-sifted executive, how- 
ever, will advance the man v*io has de- 
livered the goods. 

The larger the concern, the greater 
the number and character of the oppor- 

t\anities; stick and it lies with you 

as to how far you will go.

Play Safe Before Paying the Contractor 

You and the lady to whom you turn 
over your pay envelope, are pretty 
proud of your new home, but you feel 
that a oonorete walk to the back door 
would Improve things a lot. 

So you look vcp a walk contractor and 
make arrangements ; the men oome and put 
down the walk, the work is satisfactory 
and you pay the contractor for the Job^ 

A few evenings later there comes a 
ring at the bell, and you find on the 
steps one of the men who laid your new 
walk. He informs you that he worked 
three days on the Job and hasn't been 
paid, and that the contractor has left 
town, or has refused to pay him for hia 

You remark plaasajitly that you sure 
are sorry, but it really isn't any of 
your concern as all your dealings were 
with the contractor who hired him and 
that you hold his receipted bill for 
the Job. 

"Well, be that as it may," he re- 
sponds, "but if I don't get my money, 
I'll file a mechanics lien against your 
property. " 

And, under the circumstances, can 
he do this, and collect? He most cer- 
tainly can. Here is Section 3 of the 
Lien Law of the State of New York. 

"Mechanics Lien on Heal Property." 

"A contractor, sub-contractor, lab- 
orer, or material man, who performs 
labor or furnishes materials for the 
improvement of real property with the 
consent, or at the request, of the owner 
thereof, or of his agent, contractor or 
Bub-oontraotor, shall have a lien for 
the principal and interest of the value, 
or the agreed price, of such labor or 
materials upon the real projierty im- 
proved or to be improved and upon such 
improvement from the time of filing a 
notice of such lien as prescribed in 
this article. " 

This being the law, the laborer would 
have a lien on the property regardless 
of whether or not his employer or con- 
tractor has been paid by the owner, the 
only limitations are that the work must 

be in the nature of am improvement to 
real estate and mast be done at the re- 
quest or with the consent of the owner. 

Even though the owner pays the con- 
tractor in full for the job, the labor- 
er who works for the contractor may, if 
his boss neglects to 'pay him, obtain a 
lien upon the property. 

This same law will apply in case 
you had your home painted, re-shingled 
or re-deccrated, or if you erected a 
garage or bam on the property, or any 
other Improvement . 

The way to protect yourself is ob- 
vious. Before jjaying the contractor, 
have him produce, or obtain them your- 
self, signed statements from all the 
men who have worked on the Job, stating 
that they have been paid in full. , If 
the Job is a large one, the owner may 
protect himself by requiring the con- 
tractor to put up a bond with adequate 
security to indemnify the owner against 
mechanics liens. This method, however, 
is not very practical for small Jobs. 

If a notice of lien is actually filed 
against the property, the owner's best 
course, if he cannot get the contractor 
to pay the laborer, is to pay the 
laborer himself and then bring suit 
against the contractor. If the laborer 
is not paid, he may foreclose his lien 
in a manner similar to the manner of 
the foreclosure of a mortgage, and may 
force a sale of tue property and take 
from tne proceeds of such sale, enough 
money to satisfy his lien. 

Naturally this difficulty for the 
owner will only arise \men the con- 
tractor fails to pay his help ajid this 
can, of course, be largely avoided by 
dealing with reputable contractors of 
sufficient financial responsibility. 

If at any time you are about to en- 
gage in some x^roposition embracing the 
expenditure of a considerable sum, or 
if any problem similar to the foregoing 
confronts you, do not fail to consult

By W. A. Sawyer, M. D. , Medical Director 
Eastman Kodak Compaxiy 

Of late there has heen a tendency in 
cases of suffocation to ignore the old 
TnaTTuqi methods of producing artificial 
respiration, and to use the vario\is ira- 
ohines recently put upon the marloet for 
this piirpose. 

I am told upon good authority that 
many city police departments have pur- 
chased these machines, and it has been 
made a part of their regulations that 
the machine be used in preference to 
the manual method, and in one or two 
instances of ^ich I Icnow, the manual 
method was not permitted even vdiile wait- 
ing for the machine to arrive. 

The Conference Board of Ihysicians in 
Industry is making an effort to bring 
this matter before varidus organizations 
connected with industry, so that the 
facts of the matter may be made Imown to 
all. Without a doubt, some of the ma- 
chines are excellent so far as they go, 
but none have the ease amd speed of oper- 
ation that is contained in those agents 
Tdiich we always have with us, n a me ly, 
our hands. 

In industries ii^ere they have the 
greatest need for artificial respiration, 
they have come to feel that the Shaefer 
or prone-pressure method is by all odds 
superior to any other method, either man- 
ual or machine. 

S^affocatioa or asjiyxiation is an ua- 
conscious condition due to ttie inability 
to get ozygea into the lungs. This may 
be due to a number of oausesj first of 
all, drowning. Secondly, from some form 
of asphyxiation from gas, and third, par- 
alysis of the breathing centers following 
severe electric shoclc. 

Treatment in Cases of Drowning 

Lay individual with face down; arms 
extended forward above his head. Turn 
his face to one side. Remove false 
teeth, tobacco, or any other contents of 
the mouth, and draw tongue forwsird. 
Loosen ti^t clothing about the neck. 
Step astride of the subject, and with 
hands grasped under the abdomen, lift 

about 18 inches above tlie ground and 
allow the water to run out of his air 
I»LSsages and stomach. Following this, 
wipe out his mouth and nostrils so as 
to be sure that air may pass in ^ ttI out 

Kneel straddling patient's thighs, as 
shown in illustration, facing his head 
and resting your hands on his lowest ribs. 
Swing forward and gradvially bring v/ei^t 
of your body on you.c hands and thus upon 
subject's back. Then, immediately re- 
move pressure and swing backward. Re- 
peat this movement about twelve or fif- 
teen times per minute without interrup- 



tion, \mtil natural breathing has been 
started and niaintained. 

If there is anyone present; to assist 
yo}j, have ther. get the subject's body 

warn., either by rubbing the limbs vig- 
orously toward the heart, or by apply- 
ing heat in some form to the feet. Two 
hours is not too long for a life, and 
respiration has often been restored af- 
ter this length of time. 

There is a tendency to conduct this 
method, of respiration too rapidly, not 
allowing the lungs a sufficient length 
of time to expand after pressure has 
been made upon the:n, so that twelve res- 
pirations to the minute is sufficient. 
A3 soon as possible, without interfer- 
ing with breathing, get the patient un- 
der cover and v/anr. v/ith hot water bot- 
tles, hot bricks, hot stove lids or vig- 
orous rubbing. 

Do not attempt to give anything to 
drinic by mouth 'until breathing has been 
well established. 

The prone-presL-ure method is preferred 
to the Sylvester method in v±iich the sub- 
ject is placed upon his back, because it 
enables one person to conduct it, and at 
the same time keeps the tongue from chok- 
ing up the throat, and also permits any 
liq.uids or other rriatter to flow froir. the 
lungs cr stomach, thus preventing chok- 

One very good v;ay to control the rate 
of respirations is to co-ur.t "one", as 
you mai.e the pressure upon the lower 


ribs; release your pressure when count- 
ing "two," and then count up to five when 
you again start over and mtJce pressure 
upon the ribs. Even thouj^i one counts 
rapidly, this will keep the rate so.-re- 
viiere near normal. 

In performing the prone-pressure meth- 
od, there is a tendency at first to feel 
that you are not accomplishing anything 
because tJiere cee-is to be little "give" 
to the ribs viien you are making this 
pressure, but, despite the apparent Inef- 
fectiveness of this method, it 7/ill do 
its work, ani can be persisted in for a 
great length of time without fatigue on 
the part of the operator. 

This sa'ue method can be used in any 
form of suffocation, following much the 
sarrio teohnique as outlined above. 


"First of all, yoa must have a defi- 
nite, clearly-seen goal. You mist know 
where you v.ant to go. Yoa mast know 
what you v.ant to do. Yea mast pick a 
career. You v.ant to be a farmer, a 
merchant, a lav.yar, a ccctcr, a drug- 
gist, a sales.Tiarx, a manager - v.hat? 
The hunter v.ho sheets into the vocds 
without aiming isn't likely to bring 
home many uec-r. Tne boy v.ho goes from 
Job to job. from town to town, v;ithoat 
aim, v.ithoat purpose, cannot achieve 
success. You, for instance, are a 
salesman right now, V/hat v.-ill you be 
a year from now? Five years from now?

One of the most agreeable things con- 
nected v/ith the belon^ng to t 'business 
association, in lact, about ihe most 
agreeable is the dividends. 

Just to show how a good thing grows, 
the directors of the East-^an Savings and 
Loan Association, at a meeting held on 
June 27th, declared the first quarterly 
dividend as follov;s: 1-|- per cent, on In- 
stalljnent shares; I-I/8 per cent, on In- 
come Shares; and 1 per cent, on Savings 
Shares. This is equivalent to 5 per 

cent, per annum on Installment Shares, 
4^ per cent, on Income Shares, suid 4 per 
cent, on Savings Shares. After this div- 
idend was declared, there remained a 
goodly surplus as a basis for future div-

During the year 1920, numerous 
activities were engaged in by the 
Association, including baseball, 
basketball, scccer, tennis, noon-hour 
baseball, dancing, and many other forms 
of entertainment. It must be borne in 
mind that the dues of the Association 
still remain il.OO per year for men 

and .■;;.50 per year for girls. There has 
bean little money available for exten- 
sion work, and it has been necessary 
to curtail some of the more expensive 
and less entertaining (from the point 
of the number of persons affected) 
activities in order to keep up the more 
popular sports or those giving enter- 
tainment to the greater numiier of per- 
sons. The financial statement shows 
that very few of the activities are 
self-supporting. Many oi these, hov/ever, 
are necessary, and the loss they repre- 
sent in dollars and cents is offset by 
tiie benefit to the members.

interest of the K.P.A.A. at heart and 
direct tne course of activities along 
tae lines most advisable. They are in 
actual touch with all phases of the 
Association business and are best able

ed list v.ith a bad knee. It is expected, 
however, that he will be back in the 
game v. i thin a couple of weeks and will 
be a big help. The other veterans are 
Foratbaaer, Keenan, Gallagher, Manilla 
and Goebel, while the new men are Ratzel, 
Tarbox, Heaney, Donovan and Palmatier. 

Part of the catching will be done by 
Shepanski when he is available, and in 

the balance of the games, Tao-box, who 
is showing up well, will be used. The 
pitching staff is composed mostly of 
new men who will need praotioe and ei- 
'perience. Gallagher is to be used aa 
all-around man, he being especially 

valuable in view of his ability to 
play any position on the field. 

Kodak Park rooters are urged to at- 
tend the games played every Saturday 
afternoon at Kodak Park and by way of 
encouragement and support, help us win 


Last year, as an experiment, golf 
Mfas included as part of the activity 
of the K.P.A.A, and proved such a de-

Persons v/ishing to comjiete are askeu 
to submit their names and to turn in a 
signed score card each month during 
June, July and August, showing their 
best score daring this period. Based 
on these scores, using the modified 
Calkins Handicap System, ratings will 
be arrived at for proper position in 

the tournament which is to be held 
during Jeiitember and October. As the 
•play-oif v;ill be hdld at Genesee Valley 
Park links, all scores submitted must 
be made on this course. 

Attention is called to the Park ral 
that all placers wear their button. It 
ma;,' also be of interest to know tiiat 
the course at Durand -East man Park is in 
condition and should offer much induce- 
ment to tne pla^yers in view of the fact 
that it is considered one of the sport- 
iest in tnis section. 

The K.P.A.A, will endeavor to keep 
on hand all during the season, a supply 
of standard make of golf balls which 
may be purchased at discount prices by 
members of the Association. Those wish- 
ing to purchase other eouipment are in- 
vited to consult Edward Goodridge, who 
can possibly arrange for a reduction on 
these articles. 


About twenty employees of the Draft- 
ing Department got together recently 
and organized what is to be known as 
the Kodak Park Chess Club. The fact 
that there are quite a number of per- 
sons at the Park who are interested in 
this game, is responsible for the or- 
ganization of the Club, and it is plan- 
ned to have these twenty form a nucleus 
for a much larger body. 

An effort is to be made during- the 
summer, to enroll all interested per- 
sons, and in the fall, a general laeet- 
ing is to be held at which officers will 
be elected, plans mapped out for the 
winter, and activities in gwneral got- 
ten 'under way. Anyone wishing to become 
a member may send his or her name to 
Charles Colston, Secretary, Draftjiig De- 
partment, Building No. 23. 

The following temporary offioors have 
been elected:- President, M.T, Davis; 
Vice-President, O.E.Zabel; Seoretfary, 
C.Colston, and Treasurer, J.Voss. 


For the first time since the iijtro- 
duction of the Chest idea in Rochester, 
Kodak Park obtained 100;^ in the Cam- 
paign held during the week of Liay 16th. 
Six thousand and eighteen employees 
subscribed a total of 320,056.45, rep- 
resenting a per capita pledge of J3.34.

Considerable work was done on the 
K.P.A.A. tennis courts this spring, 
such as re-surf aoing, new wire and 
improved locker room facilities, mak- 
ing the Park outfit one of the most 
complete and up-to-date in the city. 

Fred vailis of Building No. 35 has 
again been appointed manager for 1921, 
and is at work rounding up his players. 
All of last year's team are available 
with the exception of Harry Smith, but 
prospects are nuite enoooraging. The 
usual tournament will be run again this 
year, under the direction of Dr. F. E. 
Ross, and cups given the winners as in 
the past. 

Kodak Park has again entered the 
Rochester Tennis League, composed of 
Rochester Tennis Club, Llelville Ten- 
nis Club, Dewey Avenue Club and Kodak 

In addition to the League matches, 
other independent clubs not affiliated 
with the League will be played. An in- 
vitation is extended to all persons 
wishing to try for a position on the 
team to report to Ilanager V/illis, and 
evei*y consideration will be shown them. 
It is the object of the K.P.A.A. to 
have the best represented team possi- 
ble and if you can help us to the top, 
come out. Do it for Kodak Parkl 

On June 15th, a new rule went into 
effect relative to the use of the 
courts. Since this date, each member 
is charged five cents per hour for the 
use of the courts during the following 
hours. Week days except Saturday, from 
5:30 P.M. until dark; Saturdays from 
18:30 P.M. until dark, and Sundays and 
holidays all day. The reason for this 
rule is tiiat this year no money was 
appropriated to pay for an attendant 
at the courts outside of working hours. 

At first it was thought that we could 
get along without one, but this did not 
prove satisfactory and several com- 
plaints were received about outsiders 
playing, members monopolizing the 
courts, playing singles v/hen others were 
waiting, and so forth. For these reasons, 
it was decided to have an attendant. The 
Board of Trustees decided that the fair- 
est way to raise the money to pay him was 
to put a very small charge on the use of 
the courts. All of the money raised in 
this way will be used for this purpose 
and for the up-keep of the courts. 

Following are the matches to be 
played in the Rochester Tennis League.

After spending several years study- 
ing the technicalities and fine points 
of indoor baseball from an advantage- 
ous position in the grandstand, and at 
last believing himself qualified as a 
"Mugsy" MoGraw or "Connie" Mack, 
"Father John" Shepherd proceeded to 
have himself elected President of the 
K.P.A.A, Noon Hoiir League for 1921 and 
is making good* 

The fOMT teams — Office, Legion, 
Pipe Shop and Drafting, which compose 
the League, are made iq) of the pick of 
the Kodak Park players. All are play- 
ing excellent ball and furnishing good 
oleaaa sport as well as amusement for 
the several hundred fans who assemble 
each noon on the athletic field. 

In the Opening game played on tlay 
3rd, the Pipe Shop won from the Drafts- 
men 7-0, President Shepherd demonstrat- 
ing his individuality by dispensing with 
the usual "opening" demonstrations. 

The Drafting team got away to a bad 
start, losing seven straight games. 
Then, the team was strengthened and 
proceeded to stage the well-known come- 
back with the result that not a game 
has been lost since the re-organization. 
Manager Pterguson's boys are now a match 
fOr any of them. 

Some mighty good hitting is being 
done in the League this season, eight 
of the players having a batting aver- 
age of better than .450. Jack Bright- 
man is leading man with .777. Follow- 
ing in order are A.Meyn-.555, J. Weiden- 
kofer-.551, H,M.Burley-.521, H.Kestler- 
.500, M.Pike-.480, "Rip" Benzoni-.468 
and J.Roth-.461. 

As an added feature, negotiations 
are under way to arrange a series of 
games witli the Hawk-tlye v/orks and 

Bausoh & Lomb Optical Conpany, which 
should prove interesting as well as 
opening a new line of con^jetition in 
Industrial Athletics. 


On June 4th, at ulaplewood Inn, the 
Industrial Economy Department held its 
annual outing. The party left the Park 
at 1£:15 and at 1:00 P.M., they were 
getting away with a big chicken dinner, 
and it was some chicken.

The Preroo Club's annual picnic was 
held Saturday afternoon, June 11th, at 
East Maplewood. Hals year, the picnic 
was smaller numerically, the attendance 
being restricted to members only, but 
nevertheless it turned out a complete 
success. This policy was adopted be- 
cause, since the expenses were borne 
largely by the treasury of the club, 
It was believed that members only were 
entitled to benefit therefrom. 

Dinner was served in the pavilion. 
The courses of tne repast were inter- 
spersed with entertainment of various 
kinds, one of which was a bean guess- 
ing contest which was won by "Mike" 
Strebler. We have always surmised 
that bean eating was largely responsi- 
ble for "Mike's" corpulency, but were 
unaware that counting them as he ate 
was part of his daily routine. Another 
feature was the announcement that this 
was to be the last Premo Club picnic 
which Klsie Schmidt would be privileged 
to attend as a member, the reason for 
which will be duly announced. Elsie 
responded with an exhibition dance, 
having G-eorge Rake as a partner. 

The principal out-door feature was 
a mixed baseball game with Albert 
V.iloox and George Rake as opposing 
captains. The Wilcox teeun won, score 
12 to 7. 

"Angle" Moran had nothing on Homer 
Ransom as an umpire. V.'e have been told 
that Homer hired two boys to collect 
and carry away all the loose pop 
bottles, thus showing foresight. The 
defeat of the Rake team was largely 
d^e to the excellent fielding combi- 
nation of Sullivan and Sohultz, which 
could not be excelled. 

For the Rake team, Olive Fagan 
played the star fielding game at third 
base. Her remarkable backward running 
catch of a long foul-fly was credit- 
able. Had she not succeeded in catch- 
ing the ball, it probably would have 

knocked Alice Garrett and Louis V/heeler 
out of a crow's nest. Each member of 
the winning team received a box of 

Excellent prizes v/ere awarded for 
the other contests which were as

John Stanton, Mary V.alls, Ralph Hutch- 
ings ; Committee on Sports, Homer 
Ransom, Emily Repp, Pauline Schwartz, 
Veraie Osbom and Charles Sullivan. 

Much credit is due to the committee 
for the manner in which this picnic was 
put across, and all present agreed that 
the Premo Club had again lived up tc 
its reputation for doing it right.

Last month's issue of the Kodak 
i-zine contained the first prize 
essay submitted by Philip Voelckel 
for the Prize Eaeay Contest on the 
subject "WTiat Does the Kodak Magazine 
Mean to Me?". Here are the second and 
third prize winning essays which, 
owing to the lack of space, we were 
unable to rxni last month. 



Irene M. \7ilt 

V%en 1 first sav; the announcement 
of this contest. v;ith the title: "Vhat 
Does the Kodak iiagazine Ltean to Lie?", 
I thought that tlie Kodak Llagazine meant 
vei^ little to me, but 1 have changed 
ray mind. V.hy am 1 so anxious to get n^y 
Magazine just as soon as all the Llaga- 
zines arrive from the printer's? And, 
why do I read it the minute I get it 

(if the "Boss" Isn't around, or, if he 
is feeling especially good-natured)? 

V.ell, first, this little book has a 
lot of news in it; some of it I already 
know, and some is entirely new to me» 
It serves as a sort of newspaper, keep- 
ing me posted on all the latest KodaJc 
events and activities, and it also 
pleases me by bringing to my mind 
memories of good times, good "eats", 
good fun, and good friends. I like to 
look at the pictures and cartoons; who 
doesn't? And, vhere else can you find 
such good cartoons, and suoh good like- 
nesses of your friends and acquaintan- 
ces? The fact that I often see car- 
toons and photographs by two Premo 

friends of mine increases m^ appreci- 
ation of them. 

The Magazine causes me to feel more 
friendly towards the people here in 
my own factory, and in the other East- 
man plants, too. It produces a sort 
of "get-together" feeling, and, as a 
consequence of this, I do my work 
better, am more contented, do not get 
discouraged so often, and have more 
fun and real companionship with my 
fellow workers. It sort of softens 
up the whole bunch of us and makes xis 
more human, not just machines doing 
oar appointed work and nothing more. 

The general articles in the front 
of the booklet about the origin and 
progress of the Kodak, the making of 
lenses, the work of the Patent Depart- 
ment, the explanation of the Eastmen 
Savings and Loan Association, etc., are 
both interesting and instructive. In- 
terspered with all this are practical 
bits of advice v.hioh v-ould prove use- 
ful to me if I only followed them up. 

V/hile I don't take an active part 
in athletics, still the section on 
athletics interests me veiry much, as 
I like to read about others who cover 
themselves with glory, and especially 
anyone from Prerao. 

For these reasons, I like the Kodak 
Magazine, and I am thankful that I work 
for a company that publishes such a 
lively Magazine, and gives it to every 
employee free of charge. 

The man who sings "Home Sweet Home' 
in a rented house is kidding himself 
=vid serenading tjie landlord. 




We read In last month's Kodak Maga- 
zine of v.hat happened to John and Mary, 
and Bill ajid Helen who were so dis- 
appointed when they found out their 
picnic pictures had failed to "register", 
and we outlined why so many people fail- 
ed to get photographic results. 

The need of pnotographic education, 
especially to beginners, is amply proved 
by the remarkable advancement shown by 
the members of the olass, whose nega- 
tives, after only five weeks of very 
limited instruction, show a vast im- 
provement • 

llr. Brehm has gone to a great deal 
of trouble to illustrate the frequent 
mistakes which amateurs make, and has 
also shown remedies to overcome unusiial 
conditions. He has made dozens of lan- 
tern slides exemplifying the "mysteries" 
of focal length of lens, and, while ack- 
nowledging the value of printed matter 
on the rudiments of photography, there 
is no question that an illustrated talk 
covers the subject far better. The value 
of personal contact is daily proved by 
members asking why was this negative 
marked "fair" or "good" or whatever the 
case may be. 

As each roll of film is developed in 
the Industrial Relations Department and 
personally Judged by Ltr.Brehm, the mem- 
bers appreciate this sejrvice which saves 
a great many spoiled films aaid dis- 
appointed people. 

An excellent medium of illustration 
is used by showing enlarged drawings of 
the parts of the camera that are fre- 
quently misunderstood, such as the 
view finder, the focusing scale, the 
diaphragm scale, the shutter pointer 
scale, etc. Possibly the most interest- 
ing of the noon hour, lectures were 
those given in the covered part of the 
Court Yard. A screen was hong and chairs 

were provided for the class, who thor- 
oughly enjoyed and received benefit 
from the numerous lantern slides 
which were made for that purpose. 
June 17th proved to be a red letter 
day by way of attendance, when moving 
pictures, loaned to us by the Adver- 
tising Department, were shown. 

V.e trust that the Management will 
see fit to further this idea of noon 
day "movies", not only as a means of 
recreation, but from an educational 
standpoint. The boundaries of motion 
pictures are almost unlimited in re- 
gard to illustrating the "whys" and 
"v.hereforso"of photography. 

It is being planned to make prints 
from three negatives taken by each 
member of the photographic class, the 
prints being mounted on large display 
cards, and the collection to be shown 
throughout the factory. 

V/e are sorry that space will not 
permit a full review of the many bene- 
fits tnat have been derived from 
studying with the photographic class.Suf- 
fice it to say that the next olass, 
which is not schedule to start for 
some weeks, is rapidly filling, and 
the present meetings are proving to 
be as successful as any organization 
of employees formed in the Camera Works. 

Did you send in a suggestion during 
1920? Out of 291 suggestions received, 
125 were adopted and the suggestors 
were awarded a total of |;600.85. 

Give us the idea for anything which 
may result in an improvement of the 
product, reduction in costs, lessening 
of the accident or fire hazard, as well 
as the suggestions- for general mainten- 
ance or convenience. Why net try it and 
get your hands on some of these awards.?

Frank Di Spirito of the Milling De- 
partment wishes to state that through 
the help of the Eastman Savings and 
Lean Association, he has been abl« to 
start building a bungalow on Korton 

Frank is highly elated over the 
fact that he is getting a home of his 
own, and wishes to convey through the 
magazine that all employees who do not 
own their own homes should take advan- 
tage of the splendid opportunity whioh. 
the Association extends to Kodak work- 


Hail to that all-around good fellow, 
Charles Kivell We boast of many ath- 
letes in the Camera Works, but it is a 
safe bet that Charlie is a top-notcher. 
Whether it be baseball or basketball, 
he is at home with either. We have a 
fine picture of Charlie in action at 
the opening ball game, "graflexed" by 
"Jimmie" Estes, but the Gods decreed a 
oompositors' strike which prevents our 
regular edition of the magazine being 
printed, v/hich in turn prevents the 
publication of the photograph. The 
marvel to us is that Kivel manages to 
escape the lures of matrimony. But 
there, he probably is as good a "dodger" 
as he is a"hitter". 


Although our boys and girls basket- 
ball teams did not "cover themselves 
with glory" last season, nevertheless 
they hold high hopes of doing big things 
next year and in order to keep up that 
spirit, a regular miniature picnic was 
arranged at Island Cottage under the 
capable guidance of Llabel I'Lane. Walter 
Hof 's cottage served as a rendez-vous 
for the party and at six o'clock v^hen 
the boys arrived after the opening 
league baseball game, a real hot dinner 
"just like mother used to make", was 
the chief event of the afternoon. 

During the evening, a marshmallow 
roast created quite a lot of fun, and 
•ach boy and girl thoroughly enjoyed 
the dance, which lasted xintil 11:30, 
when the party broke up for home.

Gardeners, how are the orops ooming? 
Are you planning to get some of the 
"easy money" from our September exhibit? 

Instead of holding a gardening in- 
spection competition this year, we have 
decided to concentrate all our efforts 
on the fall exhibit, which will be held 
on Saturday, the third day of September. 
The Recreation Club has voted a con- 
siderable sum of money for prizes, and 
everybody will have a chance to compete, 
either in the single or oplleotive class. 

It seems almost futile for us to give 
to the members of the gardening associ- 
ation any advice relative to growing 
vegetables, for we are now so well es- 
tablished. We have learned, during 
the six years of our existence as a 
gardening club, that individual con- 
tact is more effective than group meet- 
ings and, in consequence, members are 
urged to bring their own problems to 
the Secretary, in the Industrial Re- 
lations Department, between the hours 
of two and four. 

The sale of seeds. aiid garden tools 
has been quite large this year, and, 
altogether, affairs warrant a success- 
ful season. In raising vegetables for 
exhibition purposes, don't forget that 
it is not th» five largest specimens 
that necessarily win the prize, but 
rather those of a uniform and standard 

We hope to hold one group meeting 
before our exhibition, when lantern 
slides will be shown illustrating how 
to select specimens for exhibiting and 
also how to prepare them for the judge's 
keen eye. 


Have you attended Kodak Park on 
Saturday afternoons to see the four 
competing teams - Camera Vorks, Hawk-Eye, 
!<lain Office and Kodak Park - battle for 
the Eastman pennant? Yoder's company 
did not shov^ up particularly strong on 
opening day, but watch their speed from 
now on. "Lefty" Kline's trusty arm is 
now showing the proper momentum, and 
with Frank Miller catching, Kodak Park 
will have to travel fast to make good 
its boast. Get behind Yoder and the boys I 

TWENTY million: 

Have you ever considered how vitally 
important your particular Job is in the 
Kodak organization? 

There is just one way to get the 
goods on the top rung of the sales 
ladder; that is, by man olac taring an 
article which meets all the require- 
ments of the public. 

Having reached that desirable posit- 
ion, the great object is to stay there. 

How? By reason of three things. 
First, maintaining quality; second, ad- 
vertising; third, salesmanship. 

It's a foregone conclusion that the 
Sales Department has its end of the 
business down pat I 

Let us think something about the ad- 
vertising features. You have all seen 
the attractive enlargements in the drug 
stores and photographic supply houses, 
so we needn't waste space talking about 
them. Let's think about the number of 
advertisements that appear in magazines 
books and newspapers. 

Have you any idea, for instance, how 
many "ads" are being "run" to intro- 
duce the 2-C Autographic Kodak Junior? 

Twenty Million li; 

Twenty million separate advertise- 
ments, just to carry the story of one 
camera, which you , possibly, have a 
part in producing. Now don't you feel 
proud of your job? 

Part of the advertisement vitally 
concerns us. In fact, it tells the 
world just what kind of workmen we 
are. ListenI "THE NO. 2-C JUNIOR IS 
That's usl Don't belittle the repu- 
tation v/hich the company has given us. 

The Advertising and Sales Departments 
know that we are "Johnnie on the spot" 
wnen it comes to manufacturing cameras. 

Of course, the "finely finished" 
idea is by no means the monopoly of the 
newest addition to the Camera fsimily. 
All our cameras are finished that way- 
but don't lose sight of the fact that 
we must keep our goods on the aforesaid 
top rung of the ladder.

The annual election of oiflcers of 
tlie Folmer- Century Athletic Association 
toolc place v.ednesday evening, June 15tli, 
in the dining room of our factory. It 
was v,ith deep regret that v,e had to 
accept the refusal of Alexander Rjian, 
■who has been President for the past 
year, to take ap the duties again. 

Otto "Pat" Petroske popular base- 
ball player and athlete was elected to 
the office of President. "Pat" has 
always taken a very active Interest in 
all of GUI' social and athletic activi- 
ties and thB association is fortunate 
in seo-iring such an able successor. 

Vincen J . Burroughs and Wilfred 
Cusick, both of the Assembling iepart- 
nient, were elected 1st and 2nd Vice 
Presidents, respectively. 3oth Messrs . 
Burrough and Cusick have been active 
in all our plant doings, and we realize 
that we are getting two live executives 
to help carry on our work. 

The task of keeping the association 
finances again fell to George T. Roche, 
who has handled it very excellently 
for the past three years. Clarence H. 
Harper was again elected -Secretary. 


Saturday, July 16th, is tne day we 
are looking forward to at Folmer- Century, 
the day of our annual outing. V/e will 
assemble in the morning with our 
families, "friends" and the band at 
bridge square, opposite the plant where 
we will board oar to take us direct to 
the picnic grounds. 

"Al" Ryan, Chairman of the Arrange- 
ment Committee promises that this will 
be a big. affair, which we do not doubt 
after glancing at the line-up of the 
Entertainment Committee. And with 
"Freddie" Lint 2 on the refreshment 
corps, we are sure of some eats - 
good ones, too. 

It is suggested that families living 
down Lake Avenue section meet at the 
Manitou ticket office at Charlotte, 
thereby saving thera the long trip up- 
town and back. Remember we want all 
the families. Let's make the attendance 
one hundred per cent. 

Of course, we will have our annual 
ball game. Watch the Bulletin Boards 
for details. 


The interest in baseball throughout 
the plant seems to be stronger than 
ever, and although getting away with a 
late start, the Graf lex team is expect- 
ing a very successful season. 

With all of the old standbys in the 
line\Q> and some good material tliat has 
come into the plant since last season, 
Llanager Silliman expects that the Fol- 
mer-Century nine will be on the base- 
ball map in large letters. 

It's mighty easy to sit back and say 
that you could have done the same thing- 
but you didn't I 





Manager J. Hussell Craib nas devel- 
oped a smile that won't come off. 
There's a reason. Hawk-Eye has won 
foor games to date, one a praotice 
game on Ulay 2l3t against Kodak Park, 
two regular league games with Camera 
U'orks and Kodak Park, and the fourth 
an eleven-inning contest sigainst tho 
Hewark Moose. 

"Pat" Petroske's coming to Hawk-iiye 
from Folmer- Century has paved the way 
to our suocess. His trio of two-hase 
hits staggered the Camera ^'orks and in 
the Newark game his two-hase hit put 
the game on ioe in the eleventh. V,c 
expeot great things of "Pat" this year. 

Graham has seen action in the pit- 
cher's box in all four games played. 
In the praotioe game v.ith Kodak Park, 
"Norm" pitched the first five innings 
and held the Parkers at bay. He was 
sent in to put a stop to the Kodak 
Park rally in the second league game 
and he did so in one, two, three order. 
His stellar performance, however, was 
against the Newark Moose when he went 
all the way through the eleven innings 
with but three hits registered off his 

Harry Moore at first, started right 
in to accept every chance coming his 
way and he can be counted upon to get 
everything within the Parcel Post zone 
of first base. 

Felerski started his season's work 
at third and showed up well in that 
position for the first two games. With 
the annexation of Graf, Leo v;as moved 
back to his old position at second and 
now v;e c£Ln count on hira jost as heavily 
as "we did last vear. 

with the stick in every game. "Ing" 
lined one out against the Parkers and 
completed the circoit for the first 
home run of the season. Today "Ing" is 
only twenty-three home runs behind 
3abe Ruth. 

"Herbie" Graf at third is sure some 
peppy ball player and he seems to fit 
right in with the Hawk-Eye defease. 
"Herbie" sure distinguished himself at 
Newark with his clever fielding. In 
the tenth inning he accepted all three 
chances in big league style. 

Levine in left is there when it 
comes to laying them down. Benny has 
manufactured some pretty sacrifice hits 
so far this season. 

Van lare has pulled down some fine 
catches in right and shows to advan- 
tage at the bat, while Captain Wiedman 
who has been shifted to center, has 
brought the crowd to its feet on more 
than one occasion by his brilliant run- 
ning catches. 

So far, Prentio*> has not played in 
the league games but his w-ork in the 
Newark game at second was all that 
could be asked. Filling Felerski's 
place for the day, "Chuck" came through 
v;ith two hits and stopped everything 
coming his way. 

McCormackis getting ready witli his 
southpaw arm to stand some team on ita 
head in the near future, and in Fleming 
we have a combination of pitcher, in- 
fielder and outfielder. "Al" has not 
pitched as yet but he "there" at 
second against the Camera V.oi-ks and 
again in the outfield against Newark. 

Ingleby at short has been there 

Safety and efficiency go hand in hand. 





The cat's out of the bag] Hawk- Eye 
is to have another memorable pionio. 
In fact, the prospeot bodes ill for all 
previous picnic records that have 
boasted of their perfection of detail 
and good times. It will, in all proba- 
bility, be held again at Manitou Beach, 
and Au^st 6th is the big day. Mark

"Johnnie" Vass has been made general 
ohairman and he is making the lives of 
his committee very interesting these 
days. His aides in the general work are 
Chris Ha us and Ray Wall, 

George Brennan is chairman of the 
Transportation Committee. He will be 
aided by "Billy" Wilson, George Koael 
and Frank Fink. The chairman promises 
to get as down to the beach in about 
forty-five minates flat. 

To Jack Rearson has fallen the 
arduous task of chairman of the ath- 
letics. The following will serve on his 
committee; Fred Von Deben, John Vass, 
John Authaler, Ruth Kurtz, Alice Gears, 
Ruth Mullan, John Downey, Carl Nowaok, 
William Kyer, William Sohlegel, tlartin 
Tipple, Otto Schultz, George Ansell, 
Russell Craib and Leo Mason. The ath- 

letic program is a deep, darlc secret 
thus far but we may expect "Jack" to 
spring a few new stunts in addition to 
the old stand-bys. 

The iiatertamment Conmittee con- 
sists of "Bill" Eyer as chairman, 
Florence Henn and Arthur Rapp, "Bill" 
vows that he is sailing along pretty 
well but is having some trouble decid- 
ing whether to hire Sousa's Band or 
Creatore's. We admire his taste, at 
any rate. 

The refreshments will be in charge 
of "Sid" Clark, "Red" Sondheim, Ralph 
Burhans, Rose Taylert, Olive Kellett, 
Virginia Earl, Frank Quetohenbaok, 
and "Bill" Mahoney, with "Bob" Melnhard 
as chairman. Nineteen courses are 
promised, including the toothpicks and 
the large finger bowl adjacent to the 
beach. We should have the best eats 
of all time, and — there will be no 
delay in serving them. "Wib" Woodams, 
with the able assistance of Maurice 
Crouse and Howard Werner, will take 
care of the publicity end. 

Get out your picnic dresses and 
flannels and bathing suits and tin 
pails. You will need them all. 


The Hawk-Eye Outdoor-Indoor Baseball 
League has come to life again and while 
it is only half of last year's organi- 
zation in point of size, it promises 
to supply greater interest to our noon 
hour fans than ever before. There are 
four teams, and although they were not 
picked from separate departments, this 
fact by no means detracts from the 
spirit of rivalr^y-. The league, which 
will operate until late in the fall, 
should therefore furnish a jiretty race. 
The games are run off between 12:30 
and 12:55. It goes without saying that 
the last five minutes before the bell, 
are hectic ones. 

Extravatgance rots character. The 
habit of saving money while it stiffens 
the will, also brightens the energies. 
If you would be sure that you -xre be- 
ginning right, begin tc save. 


February, April and May were no- 
accident months for Hawk-Eye. January, 
March and June were not. V.liy not have 
a clean slate for every month, instead 
of for some of them? All of us can de- 
rive benefit from studying the charts 
posted opposite the Qnployment Office. 
They analyze in various ways the acci- 
dents that have occurred through the 
company for the last several years, and 
show the vulnerable points in oiu- 
safety armor. 

If the man who is alv/ays telling 
what he would do if he were president • 
would try to figure out what the 
president would do if he were he, that 
man would at least have the advantage 
of concentrating on. his own problem- 
which after all is really the impor- 
tant thing for him. 



Saturday, Jvme 4th, saw the four 
teams of the Eastraaji Kodak Baseball 
League swing under the wire on the Ko- 
dak Park diamond for their third year of 
axstion. Prom the brand of ball display- 
ed in the opening games, the Kodak cir- 
cuit is faster this year than in any 
previous season. The re-orgeniz&tion 
has materially strengthened at least two 
of the toams, Hawk-Eye and Kodak Office, 
and all indications point to a nip and 
tuQk race for the banner. 

The customary preliminary ceremonies 
marked the season's opening, vrith an 
added note of interest in the presence 
of Mr. Eastman, v^o pitched the first 
ball. First of all, the players and 
other participants in the ceremonies 
lined up for the usual circuit picture 
■?!aiich was taken by Pred Brehm and "Jim- 
my" Muir. Then, followed a parade 
aro\ind the diamond, led by the Kodak 
Park band. Next, a team of officials 
took the field, with the following line- 

lir. Eastman pitcher 

\Y. P. Polmer catcher 

H. Q. Hai^t first base 

Frsinlc Crouch short stop 

Jack Robertson second base 

J. H. Haste third base 

A. P. Sulzer left field 

P. L* Higgins center field 

A. A. Ruttan right field 

Harry Tozier, with the big stick in 
hand, took two healthy swings before 
achieving a weak groxmder toward second 
•rtaich Jack Robertson mussed up for an 
error. And then, the battles were 
on ! 

Both Hawk-Eye and Kodak Office seized 
the psychological moment to roll up a 
winning lead in the first session. In 
neither case was the opposing team able 
to overcome this opening-inning handicap; 
so. Camera Works fell to Craib's men by 
a 6 to 1 tally, vdiile the Office team was 
handing Kodak Park an 8 to 3 beating. 

Hawk-Bye put on the field another well- 
balanced machine with all the ear-marks 
of a peiinant favorite. "Pat" Petroske, 

recruited from Polmer-Century, caught 
brilliantly, and showed that he has lost 
none of his last year's hitting clever- 
ness by clouting out three successive 
two-baggers on his first three trips to 

the plate. Graham pitched a steady 
game, and Yoder's men were unable to hit 
him in the pinches. Kline's pitching 
was also good after the first inning, 
but the four-run lead was too much of a 
handicap to be overcome. 

The pitching offerings of Goebel, Ko- 
dak Park hurler, seem quite to the lik- 
ing of the Kodak Office boys. At West 
Higii field one day last summer, they 
punched ou^; an 8 to 1 victory on his 
delivery, while at this year's opening 
game, he received much the same treat- 
ment. The first five Office men to face 
Goebel hit safely, and seven Office runs 
in the first two innings resulted in his 
exit to the showers. After that, Pal- 
mateer, a long and lanky southpaw with 
a side--wheel motion, assumed the hurling 
duty for Bircher's men, and held the op- 
position to a single additional tally. 
"Toddy" Diehl pitched his usual steady 
game, and the Parkers earned but one 
run off his delivery, the other two tal- 





lies coming in on errors. The Office 

showed a complete new infield, ?4iich 
ga.i/e an A-1 exhibition of offensive and 
defensive play. 

Itapires Murphy and Ilanhold handled 
both games in snappy style, and gave 
general satisfaction.

Prospects for the completion of the

Hawk-Eve and Kodak Park to get in a five-

The first ball pitclied was

souvenir of the occasion. Won- 
der If he took it to Europe with 
him ? 

"Chuclt" Porstbauer's fielding 
average suffered badly in the op- 
ening gaine vdien he let two flies 
trickle throuf^ his fingers. The 
big boy robbed Stutz of a sure 
homer, however, by a spectacular 
running catch, and his perfect 
throw cut off a run at the plate. 

"Ash-can" Pogarty proved that 
a broken arm has no effect on his 
voice by out-rooting any six at 
the game J 

Each of the winning teams on 
Opening Day tossed in a double 
play. One: Wiedman to Petros- 
ke. Two: Diehl to Tester to 
Stutz. That's the sort of base- 
ball that gives the crowd its 
money' s v/orth. 

•"Toddy" Diehl cost the Office 
team a run in the Havric-iiye geme 
by failing to touch third, and 
so, Hardy's lads suffered their 
second shut-out in a row. Pays 
to be careful about those little 
things, "Toddy". 

••Jlac" Mc Grady helped Kodak 
Park Yfin its first game. "Mac" 
has been laid up with water on 
the knee the result of a spik- 
ing in the Florida League last 

winter but his two bingles 

proved that his batting eye is 
still 0. K. 

Kline's two-hit game against 
Kodak Office was the best pitch- 
ing exhibition the League has 
seen this season. 

No home rrms yet. "Wio's 
going to be the Babe fiuth of 
the Kodak League this season ?

with three four-saokers.

AUGUST, 1921 

Xo. 3 


IN 1886, Charles M. Hall, an American 
lad of twenty-two, discovered what 
scientists all over the world had been 
trj^ing for the greater part of two cent- 
uries to learn — a commercially practicable 
method for the isolation of aluminum. 

Aluminum (or, as the English call it, 
aluminium) is defined as "a light, bluish- 
white, malleable and ductile metallic ele- 
ment which does not oxidize or tarnish, is 
lighter than glass, and by hammering and 
rolling becomes hard as iron." Com- 
pounds of this metal have been known 
since the earliest days of history when 
such compoimds played a i)art in the 
dyeing of cloth. Beginning in 170''2, 
however, various scientists, both in Eu- 
rope and in America, began work on the 
problem of separating pure alumininn 
from its compounds. Their best efforts 
served only to get them aluminum as an 
alloy with such elements as potassium, 
iron, and platinum. During the nine- 
teenth century, experiments j)rogressed 
rapidly, and, by 1857, aluminum could be 
produced in an almost pure state, but at 
the prohibitive cost of about $'-25.00 per 
pound. It was Charles M. Hall, an Ohio 
boy of twenty-two, whose discoveries 
permitted the production of aluminum in 
a commercial way, first at a cost of $"2.00, 
and later, at $1.00 per pound. Cost 
reductions continued until, fiiuilly, in 
1911, aluminum sold at twenty-two cents 
per pound in ingot form, but the price 
increased to thirty-seven cents during the 
war period. 

"Well," do you ask? "What of it? 
What's all that got to do with Kodaks?" 
Oh, nothing much. . . except that in 1919, 
the Eastman Kodak Company used at 
Camera Works nearly 500,000 pounds of 
alumininn. And it rather stands to 

reason that any substance of which the 
company uses nearly half a million pounds 
annually is worth a little investigation — 
a little examination into its pedigree, so 
to speak. 

Yes, now you're probably asking how 
in the world so much of this metal can 
possibly be used at Camera Works. That's 
an easy one. 

First of all, on every Folding Pocket 
Kodak that goes out, the backs, beds, bed 
covers, walls, and wall light guards are all 
made of aluminum. There go a few 
thousand pounds, right there. In ad- 
dition to which, the same metal is used 
for these same parts on all of our Juniors, 
and most of the Specials. Stereos like- 
wise have many aluminum parts. 

The familiar little Vest Pocket Kodak 
has an aluminum wall and front, while the 
top and bottom of this well-known in- 
strument are made of die-cast metal. 

Even the Panorams are not complete 
without a little aluminum, for here the 
front cap is stamped out of the popular 

In addition to these uses for aluminum, 
which you will see require a great deal 
of the metal in the course of a year, it is 
also requisitioned for the reels of the Vest 
Pocket and Ensignette spools which are 
made at the Camera Works. 

A great deal of this aluminum is pur- 
chased in sheets eight inches to twelve 
inches wide by eight feet long, and comes 
in various thicknesses, from .016 inch to 
.048 inch. These sheets also come in 
different grades, the grading being based 
upon tlitterences in tiie temper of the 

The parts named above are blanked out 
of the metal on big power presses, which 


operate so closely that there is very little 
waste. Often, it is possible to perform 
this blanking operation and a perforating 
job simultaneonsly — another production 

Not all of the metal used by the com- 
})any, however, is bought in the sheet 
form. A considerable part of the half 
million pounds conies in the form of 
aluminum rod. 

All aluminum parts have to be cleaned 
with an acid or similar dirt remover, 
before they are covered. Unless such 
work is carefully done, the lacquer is apt 
to chip off, leaving an exposed aluminum 
surface, which will reflect light and spoil 
the picture. 

In addition to the pure aluminum, they 
find use at Camera Works for an alum- 
inum alloy, which serves similar purposes. 
This goes under the trade name Dura- 

lumin, and is as light as aluminum and as 
strong as steel. It is believed to be about 
90% aluminum. This alloy is used for 
making the case and cover of the new 
Kodamatic shutter, and to a large extent 
in the Etch Plate Department. 

Because of careful planning, it is pos- 
sible to utilize nearly all of the aluminum 
which is purchased, smaller parts being 
stamped out of the waste pieces. Never- 
theless, there are some small pieces of the 
sheet metal, and chips of the rod which 
have to be turned over to the Salvage 
Department. These are sold, and are 
later melted up for use again in the form 
of castings. 

Thus, thanks to Mr. Hall's discovery, 
we are enabled to make Kodaks strong 
enough for every purpose, and yet, to 
keep their weight at a minimum. 


A prominent physician stated recently 
that the majority of men who came to 
him were sufferers from nervous disorders 
brought on by worries, and that most 
of the disorders arose from worry re- 
garding financial affairs. 

Persons who accumulate a reserve 
fund through regular and systematic 
saving also accumulate a sense of self- 
possession and self -protection. They are 
free to devote their minds to present 
activities and their daily lives are har- 
monious because financial worries have 
given way to financial complacency. 

He who has accumidated a reserve 
fund does not have to spend sleepless 
nights and anxious days worrying about 
the future, and he is in every way more 
efficient than the improvident man. 

This greater efiiciency gives him greater 
earning power, and freedom from worry 
without question also increases the length 
of his earning period. 

There is no greater aid to getting where 
you want to get than the habit of sys- 
tematic saving. 


Kodak folks sure do know^ a good thing 
when they see it. In spite of the hot 
weather n' everything, the subscriptions 
to shares in the Eastman Savings and 
Loan Association jumped from 4870 to 
6467 between June 10th and July 10th. 

Kodak Park took the lead in this 
increase, from 1202 to 2879 members; the 
salesmen and demonstrators, Kodak Office, 
Hawk-Eye Works, Glenn Photo Stock Co., 
Robert Dempster Co., Chicago Branch, 
Northwestern Photo Supply Co., and 
Robey -French Co., (from 1 member to 29 
members) likewise showing good increases 
in membersliip. 

The total par value of the shares sub- 
scribed for rose from $4,343,800 to 

Good work for hot weather, let's keep 
it up now that it is a bit cooler. 

Business is like baseball. The hits you 
made yesterday won't win the game 



NOTHING would please the Sugges- 
tion Committee more than to have 
every suggestion presented adopted and 
every suggestor rewarded. 

To that end every suggestion received 
is most carefully considered and investi- 
gated and when it is not adopted the 
author can rest assured that it is with 
good reason. 

Every suggestion received is carefully 
recorded and indexed and is then referred 
to the department head and others in the 
department with which it has to do. 

Without exception the department 
heads give every suggestion careful and 
thorough consideration as they are natur- 
ally most anxious to increase efficiency or 
lower costs. 

When the suggestion has been reported 
on, it is returned to the Secretary of the 
Committee who at stated intervals calls 
meetings of the Committee to consider all 
suggestions received and recommend as to 
their disposal and the amount of the 
award if adopted. 

The members of the Suggestion Com- 
mittee are men having a wide experience 
in the affairs of the company, and when 
they are not absolutely positive as to the 
merits of the suggestion, it is returned to 
the Secretary for further investigation. 
This accounts in a good many instances 
for the seeming delay in the consideration 
of suggestions. 

Without (question every suggestor is 
sincere in the belief that his or her sug- 
gestion is of value t,o the company and 
worthy of an award. 

Here are some of the reasons for the 
non-adoption of a suggestion: 

If it concerns the manufacture of a 
new product; insufficient market; too 
costly to produce; infringes on patent not 
owned by us; has been tried out i)reviously 
and found impractical or already under 
consideration, or is in process of manufac- 
ture before suggestion was received. 

Quite frequently suggestions are re- 
ceived for improvement of product which 
call for an expenditure out of proportion 
to the benefits to be gained, or when the 
improvement of one part would work to 
the detriment of some other part. 

Regarding simplification of office forms 
and records, many suggestions are adopted 
but sometimes it is found that while the 
suggestion would simplify the work of one 
employee or one department, it would add 
to the work of some other person or de- 
partment to an extent exceeding the bene- 
fit derived if adopted. 

Suggestions regarding the selling or 
advertising policy of the company liave 
only in rare instances been adopted 
because they have been considered before, 
used previously, or would conflict with a 
definite company policy. Suggestions 
along these lines are nevertheless welcome 
and will always receive consideration. 

There is the suggestion which ])oints out 
the obvious thing to do, such, for instance, 
as moving a set of scales from one end of a 
bench to the other, or installing a lamp to 
light up a dark corner or correcting a 
typographical error in a previous edition 
of a catalogue. Such as these can 
scarcely be considered for awards. 

It has hap])ened, and in all likelihood 
will happen again, that a suggestion 
rejected by the committee has later been 
put into operation without the knowledge 
of the committee. In such case, the 
suggestor has but to call the matter to the 
attention of the Secretary of the Com- 
mittee and it will be investigated and 
taken up at a committee meeting. 

Being the Secretary of a suggestion 
committee is no snap; being a member of 
the committee calls for hard work and 
close attention, and as all its members are 
human they may sometimes make an 
error — but when they do, you will find 
them mighty glad to correct it. So send 
in your suggestions and help keep up 
our high record for suggestions adopted. 



F'raxk S. Noble, Vice-President of the Eastman Kodak Company, 
died suddenly at his home in this city on the evening of July 5th. 

Mr. Xoble leaves a wife, Mrs. Lillian C Xoble: a daughter. Miss 
Elizabeth A. Xoble; a brother, Raymond G. Xoble of X'ew York, 
and a sister, Miss Elizabeth A. Xoble of South Windsor, Conn. 

Frank Xoble was one of the best known men in the photographic 
business, his earlier days being spent with the Xew Jersey Aristo- 
type Company. For more than twenty years he had been associated 
with the Eastman Kodak Company, first as Manager of the Chicago 
branch. He was called to Rochester in 1904, and became Assistant 
Treasurer of the company and later Vice-President. 

The following memorial was adopted by the Board of Directors 
of the Eastman Kodak Company on July 13, lO'-il: 

"// is impossible that aui/ tribute of icords to the memory of Frank S- 
Xoble should mean as much as that greater tribute that was paid him by 
the host of friends who journeyed to Rochester to pay their last respects. 
Such a manifestation could hare come from no mere surface friendship. 
It u-as, in its depth and sincerity, a true reflection of the mail himself. 

And yet it is our wish to speak of him as we knew him. He carried 
with him something greater even than his zeal and energy and foresight- 
edness, greater even than his conscientious devotion to whatever he under- 
took. It iras his sympathetic understatiding of his fellowmen. He was 
often spoken of as a ''man of tact.'' He uxis. but it was a tact born of his 
unselfish consideration for the feelings of others. 

In his more than twentii years with this com pany and his eleven years 
as a member of this Board, those qualities that made for him so many 
true friends all over the country endeared him doubly to us who knew 
him so well. He was a gentleman — hjiah warm hearted, considerate, 

And this, in ea,tending real sympathy to his family, is our simple 
message: JVe kneic him and we loved him.''

Frank S. Noble was more than a highly 
.succes.sful executive; he was a builder of 

Few there are who are gifted with his 
ability to read the hearts of their fellow- 
men, and to so fully enshrine themselves 

Frank Noble w^as an inspiration to 
everyone who knew^ him; always kindly, 
just and generous; never too busy to 
listen and never too tired to smile. 

He had the faculty of inspiring confi- 
dence, and no one ever left his presence 
in an unhappy frame of mind. 

No matter w^ho you were you felt free 
to go to him for advice or sympathy, 
assured that you would receive it in 
fullest measure. 

Ruggedly honest and just, and with an 
all-encompassing love for his fellowmen, 
no gleaming shaft of marble or pile of 
granite can compare with the monument 
of love he has left in the hearts of those 
who called him friend. 

"I am an old man and have had many 
troubles, most of w'hich never happened." 

Seers and seeresses have many times 
prophesied the end of the world, some 
even going so far as to announce the exact 
date of the event; yet the old globe whirls 
steadily along. 

True enough, things at the present 
time are not just what we could wish, but 
civilization is not going to the "demni- 
tion bow^-wows." 

Just think how much worse off we 
would have been if certain plans for world 
domination had matured according to 
schedule. Our present situation is indeed 
enviable compared to w'hat it woidd be 
had these plans not failed. 

It would be foolish to predict an early 
return to prosperous times as we have 
been accustomed to measure prosperity. 
These times will return, but much in the 
way of a reconstruction both in thought 
and action nnist first be done. 

The world upheaval has taught us 
many costly lessons, some of which we 
have been slow" to learn, but events from 
week to week show that we are pointing 
in the right direction. 

In our own organization we are not 
troubled with industrial dissensions, but 
misunderstandings in the other industries 
work against every individual and an 
early settlement of tliese problems w ill do 
much to restore a balance. 

Meanwhile there is but one thing to do; 
sit tight, do your daily task a bit better 
than ever before and wdth full faith that 
the majority of folks are honest and that, 
as always, right will prevail. 

We are indeed pleased to return to the 
regular printed form. We found that this 
was possible at a rather late date, which 
prevented our having the usual number 
of illustrations prepared. We know that 
you wnll bear w^ith us in this and we will 
do our best to make it up in the issues to 



Kodak Park West, the scene of our pres- 
ent building operations, is an area of 58 acres 
situated west of the Ridge Road and 
Dewey Avenue and extending on to tlie 
Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Rail- 
road tracks. The laying out of the streets, 
the grading of the land, the installation of 
the sewage and water systems, the con- 
struction of the Kodak Park Railroad in 
Kodak Park West and the providing of 
electric service and fire protection are all 

to be constructed at the new location, are 
to house this branch of manufacturing. 
The departments that will eventually be 
located at Kodak Park West are the Cot- 
ton Storage, Nitrating, Flash Powder, 
Synthetic Chemicals and others relative 
to them. Quite a change! 

A Service Building, with a dining room 
for the yardmen and mechanics, has 
already been built. ^Sleals, cooked at the 
Kodak Park East kitchen, are brought 


( Note Two Stacks of Kodak Park East in Background) 

part of the work of the same department 
that built up Kodak Park East — the En- 
gineering and Maintenance Department. 

Just as the Statue of Liberty greets the 
foreigner previous to his entry to x\merica 
by way of the Port of New York, so do 
the two chimneys at Kodak Park attract 
a stranger's eye on a clear day. But 
soon there will be another "giant"" domi- 
nating the Park and the landscape for 
miles around, for, at Kodak Park West, 
there is nearing com])letion a stack that 
will rival the two 366 footers. The new 
power house will be one-half the size of 
the one at Kodak Park East. 

Our chemical industry has grown by 
leaps and bounds. In fact, there is no 
more space at Kodak Park East that can 
be given over to the manufacture of 
chemicals. The only alternative is to 
move the chemical industry to Kodak 
Park West and consequently the buildings 

over to Kodak Park West in a specially 
constructed container, which keeps the 
food hot until it is served. 

As far as getting building materials to 
Kodak Park West — it is an easy matter, 
for the Kodak Railroad carries to the 
place of action, brick, machinery, steel 
girders and the many other requisites. 
The classification yard, where all cars 
destined for Kodak Park East and Kodak 
Park West are placed by the carrier com- 
pany, is located at the extreme west end 
of the new area, adjoining the Buffalo, 
Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad tracks. 

We Kodakers are again looking to the 
future. There are enormous possibilities 
for development in oiu* new location, 
and, idtimatcly, Kodak Park West, speak- 
ing favorably for our future growth and 
expansion as compared with the past, will 
find itself like Kodak Park East today — 
entirely built up. 





HERE is probably no piece of busi- 
ness connected with one's family af- 
fairs to which the vice of "putting it off" 
attaches in the same degree as to the 
making of a will. The very men who are 
most thrifty and solicitous in the care of 
their families, seem most careless as to 
what may ha])pen to their families after 
their death. Perhaps this tendency is 
due to a dislike of talking about death, or 
talking about the unfortunate predica- 
ment the family may be in if death should 
occur, and perhaps it may be due in some 
cases to the belief that the size of one's 
estate does not warrant the trouble in- 
volved in the making of or the dignity of 
a will. 
j/^y y^^ Who Should Make A Will? 

'' * It is safe to say that every employee of 
this company over twenty-one years of 
age, who has any sort of property in his 
own name, should make a will. No mat- 
ter how small his or her property may be, 
its distribution after death should be 
provided for in order to avoid trouble, 
delay and expense to the relatives. Of 
course, the head of a family especially 
should make a will. Perhaps the class of 
person for whom it is least necessary to 
make a will is the married woman who 
has no property of her own, but she 
should be careful to make a will in case 
the home or the family bank account 
should be in her name only. 

Wh]) Should A Will Be Made? 

You may be saying to yourself "Why 
should I make a will when the law provides 
a fair and just method of distribution of 
my property?" Five reasons may be 
suggested in answer to this question: 

1. In the first place, if you die without 
having made a will, leaving any property 
in your name, such as a piece of real 
estate, a bank account, some interest in 
Eastman Kodak common stock under the 
Stock Distribution Plan, or any other 
property which has value enough to be 
worth thinking about at all, that property 
cannot legally be transferred to anyone, 

or be disposed of or used by anyone as his 
own, or the income from it be obtained by 
anyone unless an administrator is ap- 
pointed by the Surrogate's Court. The 
choice is, therefore, between regulating 
and directing the distribution of your 
property yourself by means of a will, or 
having it done for you after your death 
by means of an administration. 

2. The law is necessarily impersonal 
and the method of distribution w^hich it 
provides, while probably as fair as any 
general system that might be devised, 
cannot hope to meet the needs of the 
individual case — a spendthrift son, the 
crippled daughter, or the eldest daughter 
who has remained unmarried at home to 
take care of the smaller children, or the 
hundred and one features which may af- 
fect, and ought to affect, the manner of the 
distribution of your property. Probably 
you who ask the question have never 
taken the trouble to ascertain the method 
by which, under the law, your property 
will be distributed if you make no will. 
You should at least do that before you 
decide not to make a will. 

3. If you make a will, you may name 
your own executor (the person who shall 
manage your estate), whereas, if you do 
not make a will that person (then called 
an administrator) is chosen in a perfectly 
arbitrary manner in accordance with his 
or her degree of relationship to you, and 
that person might be and often is ab- 
solutely unsuited for the position and 
would like to avoid the worries and 
responsibility which it may entail. 

4. If you make a will, your executor 
need file no bond, but if you do not make 
a will, your administrator will be required 
by the court to file a l)ond for the faithful 
performance of his duty, which means that 
he will either have to get two disinterested 
parties with sufficient means to act as 
sureties on the bond or pay a surety 
company a premium to act as such 

5. You may provide in your will 
that your executor shall have power to 



sell your real estate. If no will is made 
and there are children under twenty-one 
years of age, a court proceeding has to be 
taken before a sale of the real estate 
standing in your name can be consum- 
mated and that proceeding involves con- 
\\ siderable expense and delay. ,, 

\^^ When Should A Will Be Made? *" 

You should make your will now, while 
you are well and strong and in full pos- 
session of your faculties. Most of the 
wills which are overthrown or attacked 
in the courts on the ground of undue 
influence or mental incapacity are made 
by persons who have begun to suffer from 
the effects of old age. The making of a 
will is an act requiring careful and 
thoughtful effort which good health alone 
can afford. 

What Should A Will Contain ? 

Of course, the contents of a will depend 
upon the needs of the individual case. 
Generally speaking, the more simple a will 
is, the better. The prime purpose is the 
distribution of the property to the family 
in a way that will be most equitable and 
wise under the particular circumstances. 
In the case of a man having a wife and 
small children, ordinarily the best course 
is to leave all the property to the wife and 
appoint her as executrix. She is the 
person upon whom the responsibility of 
caring for the children w411 rest and if she 
has shown herself to be a capable woman, 
she should have all the assets there are to 
help her in her struggle aufl should not be 
hampered by trusts or any other "strings" 
attached to the property which would 
make it difficult for her to use it at the 
time and in the manner which her best 
judgment would dictate. 

You should be careful even though you 
are leaving all your property to your wife 
to provide that she, as executrix, shall 
have the power to sell the real estate, as, 
otherwise, if a child should ])c lioru after 
the making of the will and you should 
neglect to change it after the birth, your 
wife could not sell the real estate without 
going through the legal proceeding pre- 
viouslv referred to. 

A J]'ill May Be Changed 
Perhaps one of the reasons why people 
delay in the matter of drawing their wills 
is the fear that they may change their 
minds after the will is drawn and they, 
therefore, desire to wait until they are 
sure of what they want to do. It is w^ell 
to bear in mind that a will does not take 
effect until the time of the death of the 
person who makes it (called the testator), 
and, therefore, a will may be revoked and 
a new will made at any time, or a will may 
be changed by adding to it by what is 
called a Codicil. The proper course to 
pursue is to decide upon what you want 
to do under existing conditions, have your 
will drawn based upon those conditions, 
and, in case such a change occurs in the 
conditions as makes a new will or a codicil 
advisable, to make that change without 

Two events entering into the testator's 
life affect automatically a will previously 
made, namely (1) the birth of a child, (2) 
marriage. The effect of such birth and 
marriage is substantially the same. Unless 
the surviving child or the husband or wife, 
as the case may be, is provided for or in 
some way mentioned in the will or is 
provided for by a separate settlement, 
such child or husband or wife takes the 
same share in the estate as though no will 
had been made. The will, however, still 
governs the distribution of the remainder 
of the property. Care should be taken, 
therefore, in case either of these events 
happens, to make a new will at once. 

Where a new will is made, the old one 
should not be left lying around, but 
usually should be entirely and totally 
destroyed. The reason for this is that if, 
after the testator's death, the new will 
cannot be located, the old will may be 
probated and thus the testator's intentions 
fail of being carried out. 

Danger of A "Home-Made" Will 
The law requires that a will be executed 
and witnessed in a certain j)rescribed 
manner, and therefore it is essential that 
you have your will prepared by and ex- 
ecuted in the presence of a man whose 
business it is to know the law's require- 



ments, namely, a lawyer. We have spoken 
merely of the form of a will, but sup- 
pose the testator ^wishes to create some 
sort of a trust, or to do any one of the 
many things that the individual case maj' 
require, then the lawyer's help in the 

wording of the will is indispensable. The 
court records are full of the wTecks of 
estates brought about by "home-made" 
wills. Do not be so foolish as to add your 
property, no matter how small, to this 
general pile. 


THERE should be no room in Rochester 
for the Fake Physician. He is a 
menace to the public. And because he is 
so plausible he is all the more dangerous — 
dangerous not only to his patients but to 
the effective work of the great body of 
physicians who are not only able but who 
are honest, sincere and self-sacrificing. 

If the Kodak Magazine seems to be 
riding a hobby on this matter of medical 
grafters and professional incompetents, 
there's a good reason for it. And nobody 
knows this better than the reputable 
physicians themselves. They would be 
delighted to eliminate every faker, every 
careless diagnostician from the medical 
ranks but they can't do it. Their hands 
are tied. Action by them — even criti- 
cism from them — is easily replied to. 
"They are inspired by professional jeal- 
ousy," says the faker. And he gets away 
with it. So long as he has his bit of 
sheepskin from a medical college, he can 
be dislodged only for the most flagrant 
mal-practice. He knows it and plays safe. 

Not being handicapped by the "ethics" 
of the profession, the Kodak Magazine 
can say things that the real, honest-to- 
goodness doctor cannot say. In an 
organization such as ours, there is plenty 
of opportunity to observe cases. Observe 
now, if you please, the "Get the Money" 
specialist. Xo, not the real specialist — 
he is most necessary to the community. 
His work is often that of a super-man, 
work for which he has prepared himself by 
self-sacrificing years of study and research. 

This "Get the Money" chap usually 
specializes in a disease that moves slowly, 
goitre, for instance. 

"Rub this on your neck and take these 
pills twice a day, and come again next 
Wednesday. Five dollars, please. Thank 
you. Be sure to come again Wednesday. " 

Such cases have come under our obser- 
vation where there was no diagnosis 
whatever that was more thorough than a 
layman could have made. The swelling 
was there. The "specialist" prescribed 
the pills and liniment and took the money. 
There was no examination of the heart, no 
taking of blood pressure to see if the 
medicine would be injurious to the 
patient. Goitre being the specialty, goi- 
tre alone was treated. Possibly the 
medico figured that later on a heart 
"specialist" could fix up the trouble he 
was starting — if the money held out. 

Through the information that comes 
from our INIedical Department we could 
cite specific cases. We do not wish to — 
not because we care to save the feelings of 
a physician who is incompetent or who 
has been neglectful, but because in some 
instances the patient might not like to 
have his or her case discussed even in our 
home Kodak circle. 

But there is carelessness going on, 
almost criminal carelessness. There are 
specialists — and we repeat, these men 
usually specialize in diseases that progress 
slowly (cumulative compensation, you 
know) — who should be carefully avoided. 

We propose to make it an easy matter 
for you to recognize the medical faker on 
sight. There are so many honest and 
capable physicians in Rochester that it 
is a pity that anyone should fall into the 
hands of the fakers. We propose to make 
it impossible so far as Kodak employees 
are concerned.

Although Folmer-Century is not represented in 
the Kodak League this year by a plant team, sev- 
eral of their boys are in the thick of the pennant 
race. The Hawk-Eye team, last year's champs, is 
counting heavily on the services of "Pat" Petroske, 
"Herbie" Graf, McCormack and Fleming. With 
the Main Office, one finds Perrin at first base and 
Drabinski in the outfield. Gawer and Chernis have 
also played with the Office team. Petroske, Perrin 
and Drabinski are all hitting .500 or better.

friends, invaded Manitou Beach via special cars 
which left Kodak Park at 12:-20 on Saturday, June 
25th, took over tne Beach, and proceeded to rim it 
to suit themselves. 

Numerous A. E. F. "vets" in the party started 
immediate agitation for food with very good effect,

made to have Building No. '23 Baseball team play 
the No. 49 outfit at tlie picnic, for Building No. :23 
won 15 to 14. The Storekeepers, however, im- 
mediately protested the game and the play-off was 
staged at Kodak Park on June 30, the Stores 
Department Team winning :21 to '2. 

A Buffet Limcli was served during the afternoon 
and evening and music was furnished for dancing, 
the dance hall being well patronized.

The Engineering Department held its Annual 
Outing at East Maplewood on Saturday, June '25th. 

About eighty members of the department motored 
to the grounds where dinner was served at one 

Haywood G. DeMey presided over the festiAities 
at the dinner. Mrs. Howard R. Patterson rendered 
several piano solos that were much appreciated. 
Ralph H. Smith scored heavily with his vocal solos. 

After the dinner, a ball game between the 
Engineers and Draftsmen was staged, the Engineers 
winning, twenty to nineteen, after nine innings of 
wild baseball. For seven innings the Draftsmen 
led by a large margin but following the retirement 
from the game of their chief draftsman their chances 
went glimmering. Captain Hands, umpire in chief, 
was forced to call several conferences on close 
decisions. Admiral Dewey and Skipper John Jones 
always agreeing that the Drafting Room was at 
fault. The Engineers felt much elated as this was 
first victory over the Draftsmen and particularly 
delighted that they defeated Julius C. Voss, who 
stood them on their heads at the last two outings. 
George Kingston was captain of the Engineers while 
Lee Hastings directed the Drafting outfit. 

Following the ball game a program of sports was 
run off with the following results: 75 Yard Dash for

Remember the Foremen's Club Outing at Cobourg 
last September? If you attended, you can't forget 
it. If you didn't, you heard plenty about it for 
weeks after. 

This year another trip is to be made to the .same 
place. The date is Saturday, August l.'Uh, and the 
General Committee has been working on arrange- 
ments since the 1st of June. Nothing is being 
overlooked and every effort is being made to outdo 
last season's outing if j)ossible. 

The larger of the two boats has been chartered for 
the day. The boat train will leave the B. R. & P. 
Station, West Avenue, at I'i o'clock noon for the 
convenience of the wives and children living up 
town. For the convenience of the members this 
train will stop at Uptonville. Ridge Road at 12:20 
noon and connections will be made with the boat at 
Genesee Dock, where it will leave promptly at 1 :00 
o'clock. It is to be a basket picnic and everyone is 
urged to bring 4iis o^\'n "eats." However, meals 


Despite the fact that Kodak Park is playing very 
good tennis we have not won a single match to date. 
This is due entirely to the high caliber of the other 
teams in the League. The Rochester Tennis Club 
has a team composed of players of exceptional 
ability, many of whom are nationally known, as also 
the Melville Club. Dewey Avenue, although de- 
feated in its first matches with the above-men- 
tioned teams, was able to win from Kodak Park 
by several points, showing that it too is a fast 

Conditions regulating the eligibility of players 
however are different at Kodak Park than with the 
others. The other three clubs are organizations 
devoted entirely to tennis and are aVjle to secure 
members and players from where they will, whereas 
Kodak Park uses only men who are emplo>ed at the 
Works. This in a sense limits our possibilities and 
it is probable that our place is in the industrial field 
where all teams would be on an equal footing. 
Manager Willis, however, is not discouraged and 
feels confident that with a little more practice our 
team will round out into shape to take a match or 
two from the other contenders. Thompson and 
Wilson are both improving and from now on should 
account for wins in the remainder of the schedule. 
Any player of ability not now playing on the team 
is requested to get in touch with Manager Willis and 
he will be given an opportunity to try out for a

The K. P. A. A. annual tenuis tournament was 
launched during the last week of June and matches 
in the .second round are now being j)layed. This 
tournament, as usual, is a handicap affair, the 
ratings of the different players being determined by 
a rate list which is kept, showing the result of 
matches played by all players belonging to the club. 
A keen spirit of competition exists, making the 
matches very interesting.

Refreshments will also be served by the Club during 
the afternoon and evenmg. 

A limit of 600 persons has been decided upon and 
the members are advised to get their tickets early, 
the demand being hea\y in view of the success of 
last year's picnic. 

An orchestra has been engaged to make the trip 
and will furnisti music all day. The evening will be 
devoted to dancing and entertainment. "Jimmy" 
Hart in charge of the sports is making up an extra 
long and interesting program, and prizes will be 
awarded the winners. Assisting President John

Although the Kodak Park baseball team this 
season is not all that it might be under more favor- 
able conditions, nevertheless, it is felt that the lack 
of support on the part of employees is to some 
extent, at least, responsible for the showing made to 
date. .Several of this year's team are new men at 
Kodak Park and it is conceded that a team cannot 
be built in one year. The Kodak Park line-up 
includes a number of last year's men of exceptional 
ability, together with some very promising new 
players. The knowledge that the membership 
body of the As.sociation in general was behind the

would naturally result in considerable improvement.

Between eight and nine hundred men, women and 
children attended the Annual Picnic of the K. P. A. 
A. held at Ontario Beach Park on Saturday, July 
9th. Although the attendance was not as large as 
anticipated those who were present returned well 
satisfied with the affair from start to finish. The 
carnival spirit prevailed, various types of costumes, 
colored hats and other grotesque articles of apparel 
being in evidence in all parts of the grounds. One 
of the most popular spots was the "Gypsy" tent 
where Mary Mahan told fortunes to those inquisi- 
tive as to their future. 

The sports and races were run off on the la-mi in 
front of the dance pavilion, the most amusing of the 
events being the Needle, Tnread, and Cigarette Race. 
The attempts of the men to thread the needles and 
the girls to light the cigarettes held in the lips of their 
partners resulted in some amusing antics. This 
event was won by Susan LaDine and "Don" 
McMaster with Florence Archer and J. B. Wells 
second. The prize for the prettiest costume was 
awarded to Mary Mahan, that for the most comical 
to Dorothy Myers, while the rtost original was won 
by Helen Henderson. 

The hit of the afternoon was Farley's Bathing 
Beauties; six men wearing feminine costumes of 
various and somewhat questionable designs did a 
special dance on the platform back of the pavilion, 
introducing a novelty never before offered to the 
American public. ".Art" Williams who created 
this number has placed his name alongside of the 
leaders of the profession with Pavlowa, and "Tom- 
my" Swales. 

Damon's Orchestra played for dancing in the 
pavilion during the entire afternoon and refresh- 
ments were served, George Engelhardt and Paul Seel 

acting in the capacity of head waiters to the thirsty

Another outing at which everyone had an enjoy- 
able time was the Carbon Paper Department 
Picnic held at Manitou Peach on June 25th with 
practically 100% attendance of the employees as 
well their families and friends. 

Great appreciation was voiced for the work of the 
Committee composed of Mark Spafford, Elizabeth 
Long, Olive Easton, James Thomas and Chris Kelly. 

The feature of the sports program was the bald 
headed men's race won by Leonard Smart, Leonard 
being the only one to enter this event. Other 
events and the winners of them were as follows: 
100 yard Dash: Gehrig. Three-Legged Race: 
Brearey and Gehrig. Fat Man's Race: Ringwood. 
Wheelbarrow Race: Brearey and Gehrig. Bald head- 
ed Race: Smart. 


The Annual Outing of the Black Paper Winding 
Department was held at Troutburg. The Com- 
mittee provided a good time for everyone. 

The sports program was greatly enjoyed, the

The feature of the day's events was the ball game 
between the teams representing Building No. 30 
and Building No. 30-A, being won by the former. 
The prize was a silver cup donated by Joseph W. 
Meredith, which is to be contested for annually. 

Following the ball game an interesting program 
of races, tug-of-war and quoits was indulged in. 

The day ended successfully with a delectable 
supper at the hotel. Everyone had a fine time and 
voted to make it an annual event. 


A bang-up good time is assured this year at the 
Research Laboratory Picnic at Grand ^'iew Beach 
on August 27th. Baseball, sports and swimming in 
the afternoon, topped by one of Rossenbach's 
famous dinners, and then dancing in the cool 
evening breeze off Ontario will round out the pro- 
gram for the day. 

The official quartette is in daily conference and 
Bush promises .something good, but the interest is 
running highest in the outcome of the 100-yard dash 
between Billings and Matthews. The latest odds 
favor Billings 2 to 1. 

June 27th at Island Cottage was the big day. 
Trick 3 of Building No. 29 held its -\nnual 
Outing, about 100 persons being present. The 
ball game in the morning between the married and 
single men was won by the latter 7 to 4. 

Dinner was served, followed by toasts to George 
Yeares, the guest of honor, who celebrates his 80th 
birthday this month.

A total of eighteen entries has been received by 
the Manager of Sports for the K. P. A. A. Golf 
Tournament. Although there are many other 
emi)loyees at the Park who enjoy playing this game 
they seem to be somewhat backward about entering 
for the tournament, regardless of the fact that 
handicajis based on the scores obtained during the 
summer, arc to be given each jilayer. The ratings 
will be determined and play begun about the middle 
of September with a view to having all the matches 
played off before cold weather. 





After playing air-tight ball for seven innings, 
Hawk-Eye weakened intheeighth. and JimSprague's 
Athletics romped home with the first win over our 
championship team, on June U)th.This was a good 
opening for the old jinx, and it proceeded to ad- 
minister a body blow in the next Kodak League 
game, which we lost to our old rivals, the Camera 
Works. The score, 11—8, for five innings, tells the 
story of a weird game, but Hawk-Eye had the Camera 
boys on the run when T'mpire ]Murphy called the 
game at six bells. In fact it would have been any- 
body's game up to eleven o'clock and we had to quit 
with only five rounds played. The third of our 
defeats came on July 3rd. when we lost to the Big 
Brothers team at the Bausch and Lomb field by the 
score of 7 — 6. We had the game tucked away in 
our hip pocket until the ninth when the storm 
broke and the Big Brothers came through witli 
enough runs to win. 

In all three games the victors knew that they were 
playing a real ball team. Moreover, the successive 
defeats did not break or lower the morale of J. Russell 
Craib's players. Their game with White City on 
July 10th, showed that they still had the old Hawk- 
Eye fighting spirit. The Tenters encountered us 
after winning five straight, but bowed in defeat 
before "Doc's" WTecking crew. A score of 10 — 9 
usually indicates a good nip and tuck battle, and 
such it was, being marred only by poor umpiring. 

The l)oys themselves feel that they liave shaken 
off the jinx, and will now battle whomsoever they 
meet with the same spirit and success that charac- 
terized the early season's games. 

Those Hawk-Eyetes who haven't supported the 
team as they did last year are urged to begin now. 
Watch the bulletin boards each week, learn where 
the team is to play and be on hand to cheer the boys 
on to victory.

The chief social events on the Athletic Associa- 
tion's calendar for July were a complimentary dance 
at Island Cottage and a "Moonlight." The dance 
was given on Monday, July 11th. under the joint 
auspices of the Hawk-E\e and Island Cottage base- 
ball teams. Naturally there was much baseball 
talent, and talk, in evidence, and the crowd was 
about equally divided between the followers of the 
two organizations. An orchestra including Harold 
Groh and Carl Fischer supplied music that pleased 

The dance was a preliminary to the more pre- 
tentious event, the second annual Moonlight Ride, 
which was run off the Friday following the dance. 
As in the case of the dance, it was engineered by 
"Doc" Craib, "Bill" Schlegel and the Hawk-Eye 
baseball team. The steamer Glenn, loaded with a 
comfortable crowd, left Charlotte at nine o'clock for 
a trip up and down the lake. Although the boat 
was a half hour late in leaving, several couples 
were even later and were left on the dock. 

The Island Cottage baseball team, which had 
really played the part of host at the dance, was again 
out in force and helped materially to make the party 
a success. In some parts of the boat, however, it 
looked like a strictly Hawk-Eye family affair for 
there was a good sprinkling of children that romped 
about in every place open to them and in general had 
as good a time as their elders. 

When the boat had cleared the piers at the en- 
trance to the river and began to feel the long swell of 

Lake Ontario, some of the folks worried a little. Xor 
did it help much to see George Brennan pacing 
back and forth with a bathing suit under his arm, as 
if waiting for the worst to happen. And yet most 
of the crowd soon found their sea legs, and when the 
music began they forgot their imaginary trouVjles. 
Moreover, the moon, which had apparently been 
unaware of our presence up to this time, .slid out 
from behind a cloud and dutifully flooded the lake 
with a silver brilliance that made one oblivious to 
such trifles as the gentle swells and a superannuated 
boat. From the direction of the stern, where Harold 
Groh's five-piece orchestra was holding forth, cau'c 
haunting strains that made it difficult to sit still. 
Frieda Topel and "Red" Strickland were the star 
performers on the dance floor in the stern, while 
"Dick" Wiemer led a party that invaded the cabin 
for the same purpose. 

But by far the largest part of the crowd simply sat 
and enjoyed what they had come to enjoy, — the 
moonlight. It was noticeable that the bow was the 
most popular spot for the moon gazers, — indeed it 
was so popular that it made one hesitate to intrude 
on the comfortably settled first-comers. 

The ride was over before most people realized it, 
a fact which is usually an index to the success of a 
party. It left no doubt as to the efficacy of the 
"MoonHght" as an annual get-to-gether and the 
only regrettable feature was that more Hawk-Eye 
people were not able to be there to enjoy it. 


Did you ever hear of a sausage roast without 
sausage.' A score of men from the factory and 
office almost did. on July Hth. The affair was in- 
stigated by "Red" Sondheim, "Larry" Tarnow and 
Carl Fischer, with the connivance of the Lunch 
Room management, and it was the last factor that 
almost brought the whole party to grief. 

They started from the Y. M. C. A. boathouse on 
the river and their war canoes arrived at a chosen 
spot opposite Baker's farm at about seven o'clock. 
Those who had paddled immediately made an effort 
to cool off in the lukewarm Genesee, while those who 
had acted merely as ballast ("Bill" Roach and 
Harry Althoff for instance) rested under the trees 
after their exertions. "Pat" Mengel charmed the 
audience on the bank with his pretty swimming, 
while George Kosel demonstrated his famous walrus 
dive, in the course of which he stirred up most of the 
mud in the river. 

Meantime a baseball game had been started, with 
the avowed object of limbering up some unused 
muscles. "Wib" Woodams and "Ray" Farmen 
were most successful in this, the former ])y pitching 
and the latter l)y his excellent footwork out in the 
garden. Xeitlier wandered far from his desk the 
next day. It was noticeable that something was 
lacking in the game, until Elmore Ingleby of the 
"big" team and lanky "Cliff" Johnson of the scrubs 
added their expert efl'orts. 

The sports gave everyone an excellent appetite and 
as soon as they were over the cooks were called on to 

do their duty. It was at this point that "Larry," 
who had been nosing about the boxes and baskets, 
discovered the gi'eat dearth of "wieners." A hasty 
consultation brought out the joyful information that 
they must be reposing in the Hawk-Eye refrigerator 
ten miles away. "Red" Sondheim and "Bob" 
Meinhard thereupon made a wild dash for the Works 
by canoe, auto and shoe-leather express and returned 
just as the shades of night were falling, and "Jimmy" 
Weldon's ire rising. 

However, peace was restored with the arrival of 
the "hots." "Gene" Easterly. George Brennan and 
Frank Quetchenback did terrible execution among 
them but it was noticed that "Ed" Meinhanl. 
Harvey Putnam and "Jim" Lucy reserved their 
strength for the salad. i)astry and coffee. Somebody 
reported that "Van" ^"an Doren furnished the only 
reai casualty of the evening when he stepped into the 
nuistard. Another version says that two or three, 
notably "Bill" Springer, were slightly burned in one 
way or another before the evening's activities were 
over, probably because of the proximity of the fire. 

Before leaving it was decided to suspend sentence 
in tiie cases of the delinquent custodians of the 
"wieners," on condition that they would forthwith 
plan another sausage roast, — with sausage. 

Florence Henn was recently transferred from the 
Cleaning-Inspecting Department to the Engraving. 
The girls of the latter department extend her a 
cordial welcome.

The Hawk-Eye Indoor League, under the guid- 
ance of its president. Ralph Burhans, has probably 
created a new record for interest in noon-hour amuse- 
ments at Hawk-Eye. The games have been wit- 
nessed by the larger part of the employees and their 
interest has never flagged for a minute. The League 
opened on June 20th and was scheduled to close on 
August 1st but owing to the torrid July weather some 
of the games were postponed. These, and whatever 
tie games there happen to be, will make it necessary 
to play longer. 

At this writing the standings of the four teams are 
as follows: 


Lucky Strikes .... Charles Prentice 

Beechnuts Carl Fischer 2

Soon after the opening of the League a picked 
team journeyed to Kodak Park and took a beating to 
the tune of 5 — 0. The Park team played a return 
game on our diamond a few days later and defeated 
us again, this time by a score of 7 — 4. Hawk-Eye 
had several good chances to turn the tide but let 
them slip by. The boys, however, are not dis- 
couraged by these trimmings and are biding their 
time until they can get another chance at the Park 

Lottie Rychwalska of the Cleaning-Inspecting 
Department and Charles Kliss of the Buff and Plate 
were married on Wednesday, June "22. They have 
been busy acknowledging congratulations, including 
those of their many friends at Hawk-Eve. 

Elizabeth Meerdink is playing big league ball 
these days. V>e saw her perform at Baseball Park 
recently. If women had equal rights in baseball, 
she would probably be with the New York Giants. 

H. E. A. A. DANCE 

The first dance of the summer, given by the Hawk- 
Eye Athletic Association at Cain's Dance Tavern, 
proved a very enjoyable affair. The super-heated 
condition of the atmosphere was undoubtedly in- 
strumental in keeping away a number of our jazz 
devotees, — at least they weren't there, — but this 
fact did not seem to detract from the enjoyment of 
those who did take advantage of the excellent floor 
and music. Financially the result was not phenom- 
enal, but the small difference between income and 
outgo showed up on the right side of the ledger. 
"Bill" Schlegel, situated at the door, wore a rather 
worried look until the danger mark in the admissions 
had been passed. Then he leaned back to philoso- 
phize on the carelessness of some people in "passing 
up" such a splendid hop. 

The committee consisted of Alice Gears, Ruth 
Kurtz, Lillian Wilson, George Brennan, William 
Schlegel and Robert Meinhard, Chairman. 

Charles L. Hughes of the Anastigmat Lens 
Department and Miss Iva Shelby were married on 
Friday, July 1st. On their honeymoon they touched 
at Toronto, which shows good taste, though their 
friends would appreciate it more if they had been 
taken along to celebrate the wedding there. We 
wish " Charlie " and his wife many years of happiness 
and prosperity. 

Clara Faecke of the Filter Department and Irving 
Smith of the Mounting Department were married 
on Saturday, July 16th. The men and women of 
their respective departments, as well as all Hawk- 
Eye, join in extending congratulations and sincere 
wishes for their future happiness.

The Billing Department held its second annual 
outing at Grand View Beach. Starting immediately 
after work at noon, the picnickers traveled to the 
Beach via motors, arriving at their destination 
shortly after one o'clock. 

The first thing on the day's program was a Cirkut 
picture. This was followed by a chicken dinner in 
the Grand View Hotel. During the dinner, an 
orchestra of six pieces furnished music, and "Ed" 
Surrey — cheer leader of East Rochester — was suc- 
cessful in inducing the diners to sing several parodies 
and popular songs. 

After the bunch had filled up on the good things, 
there was a ball game between the girls and boys. 
Joe Kick and Charlie Tutty, the battery, deserted 
the men's team to play with the girls; while Eva 
Fleming and Ruth Lloyd, the other battery, recipro- 
cated by playing on the men's team. The game was 
won by the girls, 11 to 8, through their hitting and 
the inability of the men's team to connect with 
Kick's underhand delivery. 

Xext came the races, and Martha Schultheiss 
proved to be the speediest in the girl's 50-yard dash. 
In the men's 100-yardj run, two married men, 
Charlie Tutty and Howard Wilcox, took the honors 
away from the rest of the field, composed mostly of 
single men. There were several other races for 
which valuable prizes were given. Dancing followed 
the races, and during the day, ice cream and orange- 

ade were served l)y the refreshment committee, 
headed by "Chuck" Hanley. 

The committee in charge was as follows: Charles 
B. Tutty, Jr.. Chairman, Charles R. Hersey, Anna 
M. Brady, drover Lloyd, Joseph J. Kick, Charles E. 
Hanley and Horace Llovd. 


On one of those hot Satiu-day afternoons in July, 
the Bookkeeping and Credit Departments held their 
first annual picnic at (irand View Beach. 

Dinner was served for fifty people and was fol- 
lowed immediately by the ball game in which the 
married men defeated the single men by a score of 
7 to 6. The prize winners for the various events are 
as follows: 

Broad Jump: — Ray I'schold and Raymond Kesel. 
Valet Race: — Irene Maurer and ^lay Welch. 
Ball Throicing: — Fitz Morris and Hill. 
Marshmallow: — Mrs. Battelle and Mrs. Bamman. 
100-Yard Dash for men: — Eddie Schug and Floyd 

50-Yard Dash for nomen: — Bessie Leonard and 

Catherine Callahan. 
Three-Legged Race: — Schoenherr and King. 
Tinie Race: — Miss Trimble and Mrs. Lounsbury. 

The weather was warm and the water was wet 
and the only ones who did not have a thoroughly 
good time were the few mi.sguided indi\-iduals who 
remained at home.

We are very sorry to lose from the Main Office, 
William J. German who left recently to accept a 
position in New York City. 

Mr. German has been employed by the Eastman 
Kodak Company for fifteen years and has been in 
charge of the Stock Department since 1915. His 
fine personality and character have won him many 
friends who very much regretted to have him go. 

He helped to organize the Kodak Office Recrea- 
tion Club and was elected Chairman of the Gen- 
eral Committee in 1920, and President of the Club 
in 1921. 

A gold watch and chain from the employees of 
the Stock Department, a travelling bag from the 
K. O. R. C, and a brief case from the Auditing 
Department, were presented to Mr. German before 
he left. 

The entire Kodak organization wishes to extend 
him best wishes for every possible success in his 
new undertaking. 

Gertrude Lutz of the Billing Department wishes to 
express her appreciation and thanks for the kindness 
shown her during her recent illness. 

At St. Luke's Church on July the second. Hazel B. 
Himes of the Stock Distribution Department was 
married to Harry Benowitz of this city. The wed- 
ding was private, a few of the bride's most intimate 
friends being the only guests. The best wishes of 
the department for happiness and prosperity go with 
Mr. and Mrs. Benowitz. 

The Stock Distribution Department welcomes 
Loretta Bickel back again after an absence of eleven 
weeks on account of illness. 

The Invoice Check Record Desk presented a 
rather barren aspect when both Katherine Faulkner 
and Arminna Flemming left the Billing Department. 

Katherine is going to summer school to prepare 
for teaching in the fall. Remember your own school 
days, Katie, and don't be too harsh on the kiddies. 

Minnie was married at Grace Methodist Church 
to Bartel G. Hogestyn. Eva Fleming and Kather- 
ine Faulkner were two of the bridesmaids. Many 
of Minnie's friends from the office were present. We 
wish to extend our heartiest congratulations. 


During June and July, a successful tennis tourna- 
ment was run off for the men of Kodak Office. 
Twenty-one enthusiasts participated. The games 
were played on city and Rochester Tennis Club 

After the preliminary rounds, the finals were 
fought out by Collony, Sauer, Robertson, and 
Gunderson. Sauer defeated Collony, 6 — 4, 6 — 4, 
and 6 — 2; Gunderson defeated Robertson 6- — 1, 7 — 5 
and 7 — .5. In the finals played on the courts of the 
Rochester Tennis Club, Sauer won from Gunderson 
in straight .sets, (J — 4, C — 4, 6 — 3. 

As a result of the tournament, the following team 
has been chosen to represent Kodak Office against 
such aggregations as Kodak Park, the Melville Club, 
the Dewev Avenue Club, and the Rochester Tennis 

M. A. Sauer, Captain, Ross A. Robertson, Harold 
Gunderson, Lamont Collony, E. P. Curtis, C. F. 
Jefl^erson, and M. B. Hodgson. 


On July 15th, the Kodak Office Recreation Club 
entered on its second year of existence with a 
majority of the Kodak Office employees already 
signed up for the 1921-22 season. Although the 
membership campaign had been launched only a 
few days previously, the figures on that date showed 
a membership of (i^Sr of all employees; 12C7 eligi- 
ble for membership, 803 of whom were alreadv in the 

Eight departments boast proudly of a 100% 
membership, the Assistant Treasurer's Office, 
Special Billing, Industrial Relations, Motion Pic- 
ture, Patent, Service, Statistical, and Stock Distri- 
bution Departments. Several other departments 
have very nearly a perfect record, and it is expected 
that they will .soon follow the leaders across the 
finish line. 

The K. O. R. C". summer program is progressing 
rapidly. The Kodak Office Baseball League 
continues to arouse great interest; the tennis 
tournament has been completed; the girls are taking 
to .swimming like ducks to water, and already the 
air begins to fill with picnic talk. Altogether, it's 
just one more case of "Come on in; the water's

The first and second prize-winning essays in the 
contest "What Does the Kodak Magazine Mean to 
Me?" have appeared in the hist two issues of the 
Kodak Magazine. Following is the third best man- 
uscript submitted, which, due to lack of space, we 
were unable to run before. 



This is a subject upon which a great amount of 
time and thought could be spent, and still it could 
not be covered in all its details. But there are sev- 
eral specific reasons why it means nnich to me. 

In the first place, before coming to work for the 
Eastman Kodak Company, the word "Kodak" con- 
veyed no other meaning to me than that it was the 
name of a well-kno^\-n camera. When the Kodak 
Magazine was first published, I was greatly sur- 
prised to find how little I actually knew about the 
company for which I worked. As I read and re-read 
the articles pertaining to the development and the 
organization of the company and its l)ranches in all 
parts of the world, I was greatly surprised at its 
magnitude. Those articles to nie were an education 
in themselves. I was also more than impressed l)y 
the example of success brought only through hard 
work and perseverance. 

Through the Kodak Magazine, social and athletic 
activities of the Premo Works are brought to my at- 
tention that would otherwise have passed unnoticed. 

It gives nie an insight into the similar affairs of the 
other branches of the company, and permits a com- 
parison, which in most cases is a pleasant one. Sev- 
eral times, friends whom I am able to meet only oc- 
casionally are ill, and only through the Magazine 
have I learned of this. The Magazine was a help to 
me in its explanation of the Eastman Savings and 
Loan Association. 

Last, but not least, is that which is most encourag- 
ing to me. This is the review of the activities of 
certain emi)loyces, who have attained a measure of 
success through the company. These men were 
some years ago doing the same work that I am doing 
today. In reading of their advancement through 
their hard work and co-operation with the men 
higher up, I am spurred on to try and achieve more 
because of their splendid example. 

The Magazine has proved successfully to me that 
Kodak is not only an organization, but an institu- 
tion that looks after the welfare of its employees. 
I am thoroughly convinced that the Kodak Maga- 
zine is one of the finest parts of " Kodak, " because it 
is of the employees, by the employees and for the

Do not imagine for a moment that all "old- 
timers" in point of service at Premo are also "old- 
timers" in age. For instance, this chap whom you 
see so nonchalantly holding down the large piece of 
driftwood is none other tiian Charles E. Hatchings, 
of the Experimental Department, with a sixteen- 
year service record. This record enables him to 
qualify as an "old-timer" on the job, although he 
is still at the height of his physical and mental vigor. 

It is ('harles's task to think up and make new 
designs, and this, plainly enough is a regular man's- 
sized job. His work keeps the wheels turning^ 


This is Jessie E. Wright, the young lady who 
copies all the Premo news for the Kodak Magazine. 
Jessie is a great booster for anything that is for the 
good of Kodak workers. 

because new designs and models are essential to the 
success of new business. Like most of Premo's old 
reliable workers, "Hutch" is contented and comfort- 
able. You will find him on the job every day, 
planning and thinking out new ideas. 

And did you ever see Charles without a smile.^ 
We'll sav vou never did! 


When one buys a new home, he invariably notices 
a hundred and one things that must be fixed to suit 
his tastes. Such was the case with Walter Van 
vSanford, foreman of the Assembly Dejiartment, who 
recently purchased a home on Oakland Street. 

First on the list was the erection of a garage for 
the "flivver". Next came the task of painting, the 
making and hanging of screens, general cleaning up, 
and so on and up to tlie iiuiidred and one mark. 

"Walt" api)cared to some to be carrying around 
all the worries of having to do the work himself, and 
accordingly an S. O. S. call was sent out by the 
Employment Department for help. A number of 
Premoers resj)on<led. John May. Charles Young, 
George Texter and Charles Gauch gave one the 
impression of being \etcrans in the art of handling 
"Joe's tools" and William Russell and Biekkenk. 
Leonard Cooper and \ Crnie Osborne also helped 
contribute to keep things hununing. 

Mr. Van Sanford wishes to thank all who came to 
his rescue when there were so many things to he 
accomplished at once. However, this idea of help- 
ing the other fellow is but one of the frequent 
demonstrations of the Premo .spirit. 


Jessie started work at Premo in 19l;J as stenog- 
rapher and time-keeper in the Assembly Office. 
She has advanced step by step until now you will 
find her in the Employment Department, doing 
general office duties, and interviewing the women 
applicants for employment. In fact, Jessie is 
"Wright" there to help at any kind of work.

During the month of !March lO'iO. one hundred 
eighty-eight thousand, foiu- himdred twenty-five 
cameras passed througli the inspection department 
in twenty-five working days. An average of seven 
thousand, five hundred thirty-seven per day or 
nine hundred forty-two each hour I How about 
transportation? ^Miich is the quickest way to 
"feed"" the inspectors, and how can they send the 
imperfect cameras back to the assembling depart- 
ment and receive them again for re-inspection in the 
shortest possible time? 

This almost soimds akin to the famous Thomas 
Edison "Tests." It was a problem which confront- 
ed the management of the Camera Works. If the 
factory were so built as to have the inspection 
department a hub within the asseml)ling depart- 
ments, it would have been a comparatively simple 
matter to transport the product on endless belts, but 
physical conditions require that the in.spection and 
assembling departments not only be on different 
levels, but in different buildings. 

Even in the days when Kodaks were manufactured 
by the dozens instead of the thousands, the trans- 
portation problem from department to department 
loomed large. It would, or rather did. require a 
small army of errand boys, loaded ^^nth various 
sized trays or boxes containing varieties and quanti- 
ties of cameras, going through departments, up 
stairs, on elevators, or else loading trucks and 
trundling them on to freight elevators and thence 
to their destination. All this consumed valuable 
time (elevators and errand boys being somewhat 
temperamentalj and, in consequence, the Lamson 
Gra^nty Conveyor was installed to solve the problem. 

The Lamson Conveyor is constructed of ball 
bearing rollers, forming a series of run-ways, the 
frames of which are suspended at any angle desired. 
Boxes containing cameras are fed on to the conveyor 
through sharply declined "loading stations."" 
The boxes, upon reaching the rollers, are car- 
ried along by their o'wn momentum. Should the 
track or run-way prove too long a span for convey- 
ance by natural gra^^ty, or should the boxes travel 
an incline, an endless belt, known as a'" booster, "" 
driven by a one H. P. motor, rotates directly under 
the rollers, thus supplying power to "up-hill" 
tracks in order to reach a peak to start the containers 
or boxes traveling by gra\'ity. 

This speed of travel is naturally controlled by the 
angle at which the run-ways are suspended, but, 
in order to avoid too quick a feed onto the roll- 
ers, "spring wings" control the boxes as they are 
dropped down the chute from the assembling de- 
partments. The rim-ways lead to a specially con- 
structed elevator, which automatically lifts the 

boxes from the rollers, carries them to a higher 
level, and places them on the run-way which con- 
veys the product to the Inspection Department. 

The assembling departments are equipped with 
return lines for empty containers or cameras to be 
repaired, which is an entirely different system from 
the main line. An ingenious arrangement separates 
the different types of cameras made in the depart- 
ments in building number nine, the various models 
of folding Kodaks being loaded into tlu-ee boxes of 
different heights. The separating contrivance con- 
sists of a series of arches located at the junction of 
the return line which only allows one particular Ijox, 
according to height, to pass on to one of the three 
side tracks. The longest traveling distance is from 
the Vest Pocket Kodak Department. A loaded box 
or container requires one and one-half minutes of 
travel, consisting of two hundred ninty-one feet, to 
the elevator, and another one and one-half minutes 
to ride the elevator and the run-way to the unloading 
point in the Inspection Department. 

The elevator is a story all of itself, and must be 
seen to be appreciated. One could almost load it 
with boxes of eggs and guarantee that not one would 
be jarred or spilled, so smoothly does the elevator 
ride. An endless chain revolves on two huge gears 
and fitted to the chain are eight shoulders or cars, 
which lift the boxes gently from the rim-ways, 
transport them at a delicate balance over the top of 
the dri\-ing gear and land them on the inspection 
track. The cars being equally distanced on the 
chain thus regulate the flow of boxes onto the rollers. 
Should the terminal in the Inspection Department 
become blocked vrith boxes, an automatic breaker 
cuts the circuit and stops the elevator, thus doing 
away with any danger of confusion or damage. A 
box straightener is installed to line up the boxes after 
they are lifted from the terminal of the rollers onto 
the elevator. 

The empty boxes are sent back to the departments 
on return lines to be re-loaded with cameras and 
started on their inspection journey. ^Mien we 
consider that a constant supply of cameras can be 
sent from the fourth and fifth floors up to the sixth 
in less than three minutes, and by constant feeding, 
unload a box of ten to thirty cameras every twenty 
seconds, we may well be proud of the equipment 
which so effectively lightens labor. 

The library in the Industrial Relations Depart- 
ment has not been so well patronized during the hot 
spell but arriving at cooler days. Camera Works peo- 
ple should take advantage of the splendid assort- 
ment of fiction which is at their disposal. The library 
is open daily from twelve o"clock to one fifteen. 




It is early to predict who will be the Camera 
Works champion tennis players for 1921. The 
tournament is being played as raj)idly as possible, 
but owing to vacations and other is 
somewhat difficult to get everyone lined uj). Four- 
teen men and eight girls are competing for the 
highest honors, Joseph Dineen and Delia Meerdink 
being captains of the teams. 

The Recreation Club is offering two trophies, one 
for the men and one for the girls and competition is 
running keen. After the tournament is concluded, 
a team representing the Camera Works will be put 
in the field to meet other groups. 

Please observe the results on the Recreation Club 
Bulletin Boards, which are located at each exit. 

Jennie Hewitt of the X'o. Shutter Department 
became a June bride. Her fellow workers presented 
her with a silver fruit tray. 

Our best wishes to the bride and groom. 


Scheutzen Park has been the rendezvous of many 
a wild picnic in the days before the passing of the 
eighteenth amendment, and, having a deep-rooted 
.sympathy for the time now '"long since gone," the 
buffers, together with a few special guests, held a 
picnic just to prove that you can't kill a good thing! 

Superintendent John Heaphy — with a bunch of 
"shiners," took possession of the Park shortly after 
noon on a pleasant Saturday, and they foimd, 
awaiting to tempt their appetites, a goodly si)read 
which John Heaphy Jr. had arranged with the help 
of the "eats Committee." It was a lively bimch 
that participated in the fun. 

Besides the Buffers, "J. A. R." was there and so 
were H. R. Darling, Adolph Stuber, Fred Brehm, 
George Adams, Charlie Diegel, Romie StifHer, Joe 
Sullivan, Art Wallace and several other notables. 

A terrific fight occurred between the buffers and 
the dippers, each squad of which was pulling on a 
rope having, as one dipper explained, a "tugawar." 
We are told that the judge had a hard matter to 
decide which was the winning team, he insisting on 
keeping one eye on the prize and the other on the 

The rope should have been quite a .souvenir, it 
being ten feet longer when the tug was fini-shed, but 
nobody claimed it, there being a general stampede 
towards the prize. 

Like a good many more details, it is impossible to 
get the official score of the ball game. The buffers 
claim it on an error, but it so happened that the 
umpire was over at the emporium drinking iced-tea, 
so no decision was rendered. 


Tlie Tool Department held its annual picnic at 
Point Plea.sant, on Saturday, July !), with the usual 
success that attends anything the Tool Roon\ boys 

Lots of fun ensued from the race C^) up the steep 
sandy side of tlie liill, especially the sliding back 
part of the atVairl .\ Scotch Collie took the lead, 
winning both tlie "up" and "down" attempt! 

A chicken and fish dinner was served. 

Special guests attended the outing anrl everyone 
had a jolly good time. 

Class "A" Photographic Class 


The Lacquer and Finishing Departments, not to 
be outdone by other groups in the Camera Works, 
made good use of their time off" by holding a picnic at 
Fred Schmitts bimgalow on the Avondale Road, Sea 

Quite an elaborate programme was prepared as the 
picnic was an all-day affair. There was a two 
himdred twenty yard dash, won by George Mc^Iur- 
ray. Howard Mason was awarded the hmidred 
yard dash. Gabriel Rappaport and George Mc- 
Murray were the champions in the wheelbarrow 
race and also the three-legged race. Harry Eckert 
won the hop, skip and jump, and the fat man's race 
of fifty yards proved Cornelius De Graff to be the 
heav^-weight champion sprinter. Prizes really 
worth while were awarded to the winners. 

Of course there was the usual tug-of-war and base- 
ball game. The married men won the ball game and 
Howard Ma.son, the captain, received, amid great 
apj)lause. the l()\'ing cup. 

-\s for the luncheon, it was an outstaniling feature 
of the day. Tables were spread in the orchard but a 
return to the cellar was neces.sary owing to a heavy 
rain storm. 

Frank Dreimiller donated a box of cigars, and 
music throughout the day was furnished by George 
Schieds orchestra. One .sad event of the occasion 
was the inability of Joe Collins to [)articipate in all 
the events, he being overcome, according to reports, 
by the heat. 

It's a queer fact, but to get your footing in the 
business world you've got to use your head. 




Gardeners, here's a chance to make money, and also 
to exhibit yonr f)et specimens to tlie puhhc gaze! 
The Recreation Chib has taken care of the gardeners, 
having voted qnite a substantial amount of money 
to be offered in cash prizes. Also, the Club has 
offered a trophy to the value of seventy-five dollars 
to be won in open competition among Industrial 
Gardening Associations at the Rochester Exposition. 

The Camera Works (iardeners have secured a 
nation-wide reputation, and, of course, we want to 
maintain it. Every other industrial club of a like 
nature is "after our scalp." Are we going to win 
the trophy .'' You bet we are! Providing the entries 
come thick and fast for our oum factory exhibit. 

It is divulging no secret to state that the choicest 
vegetables are selected from our own exhibit and 
then displayed as the Camera Works entry at the 
Exposition. Now you can see how vital it is to our 
reputation that you make all the entries you possibly 
can on Saturday, Se})tember 3rd. Not only are you 
urged to do this as a Club proposition, but also as an 
individual affair. With the one hundred four 
distinct prizes on the premium list everyone has a 
splendid chance to win. 

This year we are conducting our own exhibit in a 
little different way from previous years. In order to 
feel that each exhibitor has a part in the giving of 
prizes, each single entry will cost ten cents, and 
each collective display twenty-five cents. 

Please note the following rules: 

1. Prizes will be awarded regardless of the number 
of entries. 

2. Any member of the Recreation Club is eligible 
to compete. 

3. Entry blanks may he obtained from the Secre- 
tary and must be returned accompanied by entry 
fee by Monday, August !29th. 

4. All vegetables must bear the regular tags, which 
will be given to you (providing you have filled out 
an entry blank), on W^ednesday, September 1st. 

5. The entry tags must be securely fastened on 
each entry, which must be brought to the place of 
exhibition before eight o'clock on Satiu^day 
morning, Se[)teml)er 3rd. 

6. If exhibitors wish to have their vegetables re- 
turned, they may call for them on the day of the 
exhibition between 4:30 and 5:00. Arrangements 
are made with an orphan asylum to receive the 
bulk of the entries at five o'clock. 

7. All entries are judged by an Irondequoit pro- 
fessional gardener whose decision must be ac- 
cepted as final. 

8. The awards will be distributed within a few 
days of the exposition. The exhibit will be open 
to the public from eleven-thirty to four o'clock. 
Watch the bulletin boards carefully for the place 
of exhibit. 


We are very interested in Summerville this 
summer, principally on account of the .series of 
dances which the Recreation Club is conducting. 
Speaking as a Club member, and not as an adver- 
tising agent, this particular feature is as attractive 
a proposition as has been offered to the folks who 
like to dance. Not only are the conditions ideal for 
this pastime at Cain's Tavern, but the crowd is .so 
nice and "chummy. " Shields' Orchestra has caught 
up the spirit of prevailing friendliness and the music 
fits into the general scheme of everybody having a 
good time. 

The dances are by no means a money-making 
proposition. Following out the .slogan which the 

Recreation Club has adopted of " A Hobby for Every 
Member, "the Board of Managers deemed it wise to 
promote a .series of dances and we were fortunate in 
securing such a beautiful hall situated, as it is, where 
the lake breezes fan the dancers 

By the time this magazine is published the .series 
will have almost finished. The month of August 
shows two dances, one on the fifth and the last of 
this summer's group on the nineteenth Let us all 
make a special mark on our calendar to be there, at 
least to the last one. Let's have a regular "all 
Camera Works night" and prove that we appreciate 
the good work which the Recreation Club is doing.

On July 18th, with the 1921 season half 
over, the Kodak League standings 
show last year's champion Hawk-Eye 
nine still on the top rung of the ladder. 
The Hawk-Eyetes are a half-game ahead 
of the Kodak Office team, which outfit, in 
turn, leads Lee Yoder's Camera Workers 
by a half-game. The Kodak Park crowd 
seems securely anchored in the cellar 
position, although, with the big end of the 
season yet to come, they still have a pen- 
nant chance. 

Postponed games have served to upset 
the "dope" and make predictions doubt- 
ful. Because of two picnics, the Hawk- 
Ej^e boys have not played a League game 
since June ^oth. As it now stands. 
Camera Works is the only team in the 
League that is up to schedule. Hawk- 
Eye has two postponements to play off, 
and Kodak Park and Kodak Office one 

Camera Works handed the League 
leaders their first defeat of the year on 
June 2()th, by an 11—8 tally, with Kline 
pitching clever ball. On the same day. 
Kodak Office grabbed off another from 
Bircher's team. An early lead put the 
Office team on Easy Street, while "Mose" 
Eggert held the Parkers in check.

ing Saturday, Kodak Office took a forfeit 
game from Camera Works when Yoder 
was unable to put nine men on the field. 


On July 16th, Yoder and his crew 
handed Kodak Park the worst murder of 
the year, taking a "^O-G decision in six 
innings. Bircher tried out a raft of 
hurlers, and finally had a fling at the 
serving himself, but all to no avail, and 
the Camera Workers fattened their bat- 
ting averages all the way around.

Baseball is "Pete" Maiiliold's holihij. 'Tele" 
formerly played first base, and also took a turn at 
pitching for Kodak Park, iclien the Ridge Roaders 
boasted of the strongest semi- pro team in the city. He 
is an xmpire now. and one of the best that the League 
ronld acqnire to call strikes and balls when tliey ARE 
strikes and balls. "Pete" has been "callin "cm tchen

Leagues in and around Rochester, foremost among 
these being the Kodak League, and the Municipal 
League. We're mighty glad. "Pete." to hare you ivith

"Murph — the Ump" has figured prominently in 
baseball for years back. Twenty seasons ago saw 
" Mvrph" in the line-vp of such teams as the Gilson. 
Excelsiors. Bostons. White Stars, and the Brock port 
Independents. Remember them? He has bcoi um- 
piring for the last eighteen years, and still "tolls'' 

"Ball Strike You're Out!" in the Eastman 

Kodak BasehaU League again this summer. " Murph' s 
all right" is the way the team managers again welcome 
this popular arbiter. 


Thursday, July ^Ist, "Vic" Harding 
took his undefeated. Shipping' team over 
to the Hawk-Eye diamond for a noon- 
hour game, and walked away with a 3 
to decision over the homesters. The 
Shipping team was reinforced by the ad- 
dition of "Ted" Ogden, of the Billing, as 
catcher, and "Walt" Hardy, of the In- 
dustrial Relations, short stop. "Mose" 
Eggert pitched his usual speedy game, 
allowing but three hits, and recording five 
strike-outs in as many innings. Neu- 
feglise, Marcello, and Stutz furnished the 
hitting features.

"Fat" Wagner, of the Kodak Office, 
continues to show them all how to hingle. 
Just an even dozen times this year. 
Wagner has toed the rubber, and on nine 
of those occasions, his efforts have resulted

considering importing George King Mur- 
ray, or Carl Mays to stop the mad rush of 
this happy-go-lucky mass of embonpoint. 

Kodak Office is up against it in the loss 
of "Toddy" Diehl, star pitcher of the 
State Streeters. "Toddy" WTenched some 
muscles in his back in the Hawk-Eye

WHEX you are sick, you want to get 
well as speedily as possible and at a 
reasonable expense. You do not want to 
be "faked" in treatment or "buncoed" 
out of your money. 

Unfortunately, there are physicians in 
this city who are both "fakers" in treat- 
ment and adepts at the bunco game of 
getting your money. 

The fact that they operate behind a 
mask of respectability and are members 
of an honored profession, with but few 
of the outstanding obvious characteris- 
tics of the charlatan, makes them difficult 
to detect. 

It is our purpose from time to time to 
point out to you as clearly as possible, the 
earmarks and general characteristics of 
some of these frauds, so that you may 
recognize the danger signals and so pro- 
tect yourself. 

There is the doctor who, either by 
wheedling, bluff, or specious argiunent, 
endeavors to secure a deposit before be- 
ginning his treatment. 

The usual argument is that, to effect a 
cure, a more or less lengthy (according to 
how he sizes up your l)ank roll) course 
of treatment will have to be followed, and 
that by securing a deposit he will be as- 
sured that you will follow it through. That 
is danger signal numl^er one, as the rep- 
utable, upright physician considers it 
absolutely unethical to accept an advance 

The doctor who pretends to be able to 
prescribe a course of treatment that will 
effect a cure, based on his first diagnosis, 
is, to say the least, taking an exceedingly 
long chance. 

The condition of the various vital 
organs in the human body varies greatly 

in different persons; one may have a 
strong heart, another a weak one; another 
person may have high blood pressure, or 
possess a liver or pair of lungs either 
al)ove or below normal function. 

For these reasons, bodily conditions 
may, and do, often alter greatly in the 
space of twenty-four hours or even less. 
Under these conditions, a course of treat- 
ment perhaps successful up to a certain 
period, may, if continued, result in 

This is danger signal number two; be a 
bit skeptical of the abilities of a physician 
who offers to lay out a course of treatment 
and assures a cure within a given period. 

Frequently this type of fakers lay 
claim to the possession of certain drugs 
from mythical far-off climes unknown to 
the rest of the medical fraternity, with 
which tliey are able to effect their 
" marvelous " cures. 

This is danger signal number three! 
This "secret" stuff is all bosh. Evers' 
progressive doctor is posted up to the 
minute as to drugs new and old and 
where they may be obtained. There are 
no secrets between reputable doctors; 
the results of their experiences are always 
passed on for the benefit of all the pro- 

All fakers are cowards at heart and will 
surely disclose the weakness of their 
claims if you will but l)e on the alert for 
danger signals. 

The reputable, honest physician will 
not demand an advance fee; he will not 
"lay out a course of treatment" and 
definitely promise a cure, and he will 
lay no claims as to the possession of 
unequalled abilities or to the exclusive 
access to remedies. 


Illness, more often than not, attacks these danger signals so you may avoid the 
when you are least prepared for it faker and be assured of honest treatment 
financially; if it comes to you, watch for for an honest fee. 


recently prepared, bears the title of 
"Summary, Showing the Age and Length 
of Service, Classified as to Sex and Plant, 
of all Employees of the Eastman Kodak 
Company in the United States and Cana- 
da." "Sounds dry as a bone," did you 
say.' Nevertheless, that document packs 
a whole lot of meaty and interesting 
"dope" under its shell. Things that you 
probably never knew, and would have to 
work hard to find if you should happen to 
want them in a hurry. 

For instance, can you tell us: 

The average age of Kodak employees? 

The age of the youngest Kodak worker? 

The age of the oldest? 

How long people usually stay with the 
company ? 

At what plant they stay longest? 

This summary tells that the average 
age of all Kodak employees in the Lnited 
States and Canada is 31 . 66 years. For 
men, it is 34.84 years, and for women 
25 . 17. The youngest employees of the 
company are two boys thirteen years 
old, while the oldest employee is a man 
of eighty. The oldest woman in the 
Kodak employ is seventy years of age. 

This report shows that the average 
length of service of Kodak employees is 
4.72 years. This, by the way, is an ex- 
ceptional record, as there are very few 
large concerns in the country which have 
a continuous service average as high as 
this. In many concerns, they find it 
necessary to compute this figure in terms 
of months, rather than years. The 
average record of Kodak men is 5.35 years. 
3.44 years is the duration of the average 
woman employee's stay with the com- 
pany. Premo Works has the distinction 
of holding its male employees longest with 
an average of 7.45 years, while for women, 
the record is held by the ]Main Office, 
where the average time is 4.19 years. 


Nearly one-fifth of all Kodak employees 
have been with the company between 
one and two years. The figures for both 
men (1864) and women (1189) are higher 
at this place than at any other point in the 
length of service chart. 

More men in the Kodak employ are 28 
years old than any other age. 354 is the 
count at this age. The peak for girls is at 
the age of 20. Here the total is 448. 
But, Cupid must do hea\y execution at 
about that age, for, at the 21 mark, the 
figures take a l:»ig drop — down to 278. 
There's a slight increase the following 
year, but, starting with the age of 24, the 
number of Kodak girls decreases steadily. 

Of course, with a concern as young as 
Kodak, it is impossible to find any of the 
half-century records of which one oc- 
casionally hears with longer-established 
businesses. Some of our people, however, 
have a good start toward the fifty-year 
mark. The dean of all Kodak employees 
in point of length of service is August 
Knight of the Camera Works, who, on 
November 12th next, will complete thirty- 
six years with the company. William H. 
("Pop") Durfee, of the Main Office, fol- 
lows close behind Mr. Knight with a 
thirty-four years record. Another old- 
timer is "Charlie" Johnson, of the Main 
Office, with thirty-three years to hiscredit. 
Also in the thirty-three year class are three 
Camera Works people, Tene Sommerville, 
Harry Briggs and Frank Dreimiller. 

Altogether, the company has 25 em- 
ployees who have been here for thirty 
years or more, 90 with a record of twenty 
five years or over, 300 who have been on 
the job for two decades, and the large 
total of 642 whose service record totals at 
least fifteen years. 

When these figures were compiled on 
March 31, 1921, the company employed 
in the United States and Canada 10,053 
men, and 4,935 women. 




HERE are a few little tips about tele- 
phone usage which we want to pass 
on to you. Properly applied, they should 
help to better service. Eor these sug- 
gestions, we are indebted to an article in 
The Burroughs Clearing House. This arti- 
cle says: 

"To have good telephone personality you 

1. Answer the phone promptly and pleas- 

2. Put the tone of 'How can I serve you?' 
into your voice, and not the tone of 'Now what 
do you want?' 

3. Listen carefully — concentrate your at- 
tention on that call — so that the party will not 
have to repeat. If you can't understand him 
use a com-teous phrase in asking him to repeat — 
such as: 'I'm sorry, but I didn't get that — • 
would you mind repeating it?' 

4. Be patient. Don't let any circumstances 
which the other party can know nothing about, 
cause the least suggestion of irritability to creep 
into your voice or manner. 

5. Don't start 'bawling out' Central if any- 
thing goes wTong. The other party may hear 
you and he will immediately size you up as 

6. If, inadvertently, someone else gets on 
the wire, don't yell — 'Get off the wire.' Signal 
our operator, and ask her to set things right. 

7. If you are not the party wanted, say 
'Hold the wire please, and I'll get your party 
for you.' If the call is for another department, 
signal our operator and have the call transferred 
Don't show impatience and say — 'Operator, 
what did vou give this call to me for — it's for 
Mr. Blank.' 

8. In signalling our operator, move the 
hook up and down slowly and gently. She is 
not only more apt to see this signal (a rapid 
movement may make no signal at all) but it is 
less likely to hurt the ears of the caller or the 

In answering the telephone, always give the 
name of your department first, and then your 
name — as for example — 'Credit Department, 
Jones speaking.' This saves time. Never 
answer by saying 'Hello' — that kills time, for 
if you say 'Hello,' the other party has to ask, 
'Is this Mr. Jones?' And then you must reply 
'Yes — this is he,' before the conversation can 
get started 

If you are not the party wanted, say — 'Hold 
the wire, please, and I'll call him.' Don't 
require the other part\ to wait witliout know- 
ing what is going on. 

If the party wanted is out, ascertain quickly: 

a. Where he is — 

b. If in the building, whether he can l)e 
reached by telephone — 

c. If outside, or out of reach of telephone, 
when he will likely return. 

If the call is transferred, stay on the wire un- 
til you are sure the desired connection is 

If the person wanted cannot be reached, tell 
the caller he is out, and will return at such and 
such a time. Then ask whether you can take 
a message 

If you take a message or telephone number, 
repeat it for the sake of accuracy — then make 
sure that you place the message on the proper 
desk, and that, in addition, the employee's 
attention is called to it when he comes in. 

In this connection, it is important that no 
employee leave a department for over two or 
three minutes without leaving notice as to 
where he is going and when he will be back. 

^^^len a conversation is finished, place the 
receiver on the hook gently — do not slam it 
down as it may hurt the other party's ear. 

Handle the telephone with care. It is a 
delicate instrument. 

Do not talk too loud; it is not necessary if 
your mouth is no farther than two or three 
inches from the transmitter and directly in 
front of it. Extremely loud tones do not carry 
as well as natural, conversational ones. 

Have a convenient place for the telephone 
book. It should never be necessary to have 
to go around looking for it 

Keep the telephone cords untwisted. 

It should be well understood who is to answer 
the telephone or telephones in each department. 
If the only phone is the one on the department 
head's desk, someone should be designated to 
answer it in his absence. Above all things, 
our telephones must be answered promptly. " 

Some of these suggestions, of course, 
will not apply to your particular telephone 
or department. On the other hand, 
practically all of us will be able to im- 
prove our telephone usage by adopting 
some of them. That this is important 
appears from the following statement of 
a well-known operator: "In cases where 
you talk to the same person often, you 
form a pretty good idea of the person — 
as to his di.sposition, if quick and im- 
patient, if flomineering or gentle, if 
serious or flippant, if courteous or dis- 
courteous — many, many things about 
one's self leak out over the wire into the 
ear of Central. " 

But it's not only into Central's ear that 
they leak; into the ears of your business 
associates as well, and no small part 
of their impression of you is ba.sed 
upon your telephone habits.

THE Kodak Magazine is publi.shed in 
the intere.sts of the men and women 
of the Kodak organization; it is your 

From the beginning, your welcome of 
the Kodak Magazine has been generous, 
and we have every reason to believe that 
each issue has been looked forward to and 
generally read. 

The moving spirit of the entire Kodak 
organization is progress, and there can be 
no real progress without improvement. 

In line with this spirit, we want to make 
this magazine of the greatest possible 
benefit to its readers. 

It is not so difficult to determine the 
good features in anything, but it is quite 
possible that we may have overlooked 
some feature that would make the Kodak 
Magazine of greater value to us all. 

The size of our organization prevents 
the editors from finding out from you in 
person your views on this subject; never- 
theless we would very much like to have 
your opinion. So, we are going to ask 

you to write us a letter telling us how, in 
your opinion, we can improve the Kodak 

We want to know if you find the Maga- 
zine of sufficient interest to have you take 
it home to your family, and if they find it 
interesting — and if not, why. 

We want you to find out whether we 
have afforded too much or too little space 
to various topics, and also if we have failed 
to embrace subjects that you feel would 
be of interest. 

To insure frankness on your part, your 
letters will be held as confidential by the 
editor; no official of the company will 
know who wrote any of them, and they 
will not be published. 

To make it worth while, a ten-dollar 
check will go to the writer of the letter 
affording the most valuable ideas for 
improvement. Letters will be received 
up to October fifteenth. Address your 
letter to the Editor, Kodak Magazine, 
State Street Office. 

DID you ever stop to think that, even 
if you are employed by someone else, 
you are really in business for yourself? 

You are investing your time, your 
ability, experience and energ}', and you 
hope to pay an increasing percentage of 
profit on yourself as your years of pro- 
duction pass along. 

Today every business man, every or- 
ganization of business men, is giving 
serious consideration to the many pro- 
blems confronting them. They are tak- 
ing counsel with each other that they 
may arrive at true solutions and so 
pursue the most direct route to the return 
of normal conditions. 

In the columns of the Kodak ^Magazine 
there have appeared, and will continue to 
appear, articles of a serious nature. They 
have been written, and will be written, 
solely with the view of helping you to 
help yourself; to aid you to a clearer un- 
derstanding of some of the problems that 
confront you as individuals and how best 
through individual action to solve them.

2 ST 6MON77f^ J9ZJ 


Over sixty per cent, of all time lost was 
due to illness, more than to vacations, 
accidents and all other causes combined. 

Thanks to the efficient co-operation of 
the employees with the management, the 
percentage of accidents has been greatly 
reduced, but the illness jierccntage is 
very much too high. The estimated value 
to the employees in wages lost, for time 
lost during this period due principally to 
illness, amounts to the startling sum of 

him only, while, as a matter of fact, it 
affects the whole organization; if he is 
absent, his work must be taken up by 
someone else, who thus is compelled to 
do double duty, with an almost certain 
drop in efficiency, for, if not taken up, 
there is a loss in production. Every loss 
due to inefficiency or to slow-down in 
production affects every one in the or- 
ganization because it adds to the cost to 



Without question, this loss of time, due 
to ilhiess, eoukl have been reckiced fifty 
per cent. Most of us fail to heed the 
first warnings that something is out of 
kilter and so neglect ourselves until 
outraged nature hands us a body blow to 
pay for our indifference and neglect. 

It is admitted that oftentimes a day's 
rest is all that is needed to restore you to 
normal, but in cases where symptoms of 
illness persist, it is certainly up to you — 
for your own welfare — to seek medical 
advice and attention. 

Neglect of minor injuries has led up to 
many a serious case a bit later; many a 
long siege of illness or an incurable con- 
dition could have been headed off if it 
had been taken in time. 

Do not neglect any ailment or injury; 
always seek medical advice if symptoms 
of illness persist — our Medical Depart- 
ment is here to help you. 

We have been so successful in cutting 
down our accident percentage, let us be 
equally so with our illness record.

creased from 6,467 to 7,620. The great- 
est increase in membership comes from 
Kodak Park (details regarding this will be 
found in the Kodak Park section of this 

issue). The Northwestern Photo Supply 
Co., the Howland & Dewey Co., and the 
San Francisco Branch also show increases. 
Holders of income shares are notified 
that the quarterly dividends on such 
shares can be automatically credited to 
their account if they will make request to 
the Association sanctioning such action. 


WHEN the city of Pueblo, Colorado, 
was hit by the disastrous flood of 
June 3rd, Kodak supi)lies were included in 
the millions of dollars worth of damaged 
goods left by the retreating waters. 

The accompanying illustration shows 
the condition of some of the Kodaks and 
Brownies which were returned from 
Pueblo after the flood. These instru- 
ments were returned by a dealer in Pueblo, 

who writes that there was ten feet of water 
in his store and that after the water had 
receded there still remained one and one- 
half feet of mud. Both the front and 
back of the store were completely washed 
out, and the photographic stock was a 
total loss. As the illustration indicates, 
the cameras were so badly damaged that 
it was practically impossible to do any 
salvage work on them. 





When tlie announcement was made in the Kodak 
Magazine last January that the Eastman Savingsand 
Loan Association was ready to do business, a large 
number of the employees of the company immedi- 
ately availed themselves of this opportunity to 
participate in a practical thrift movement and 
became members. It gradually appeared that 
the percentage of members was considerably 
smaller at Kodak Park than in the other local 
factories, which resulted in the decision to conduct 
a campaign. 

The drive was opened on July 1st, no definite 
time limit being set for the closing. Throughout 
the campaign, the "thrift" point has been the 
strongest selling argument, and the returns at 


the close prove that the opportunity offered was 
imderstood, appreciated, and seized. 

The final figures show 69.1 per cent, of the 
Kodak Park employees as members to date. 

We are gratified to see the way this proposition 
has l)een accepted since the opening of the campaign, 
and the members are to be congratulated on the 
way they have subscribed. 

Applications may be sent in at any time, and it is 
hoped that those who are unable to join at present 
will find it possible to do so in the near future. 
Bulletins will be posted regularly, showing the 
department standings, and anyone desiring infor- 
mation of any nature relative to the Association, 
may inquire at the Pay Roll department or of Robert 
A. Weber, Building '26. 


A meeting of the members of the Kodak Park Fur 
and Feather Club has been called by President 
Hauser for Tuesday, September 13th. At this time 
matters of special importance will be discussed, 
including the arrangements for the Third Annual 
Show which is to be held in the Assembly Hall 
during the latter part of November. This will leave 
about two months to arrange the numerous details 
which is none too long. In order to surpass the two 
previous exhibits, special efforts must be made. 

This year it is planned to accept all types of fur 
and feather-bearing stock. As usual, a small 
entrance fee will be charged to help defray the 
expenses of the Show, and ribbons will be awarded 

the winners in the different classes. 

Since the organization of the Kodak Park Club 
three years ago, the membership has grown from 
about fifteen to over two hundred. With two suc- 
cessful exhibits to its credit, it has more than 
established itself as one of the leading Associations 
of its kind. 

The present officers to whom much of the ac- 
complished success is due are: President, Frank X. 
Hauser; Vice-President, Fred Habel; Corresponding 
Secretary, Charles Smith; Recording Secretary, 
Joseph Johnson; Financial Secretary, Frank W. 
Armstrong; Superintendent of Poultry, Sidney 
Cogger; Superintendent of Rabbits, Carl Jansen. 





Saturday August 13th, was the big day. At last 
the clock dragged aroiuid to noon and the procession 
marched out the Ridge Road to the Uptonville 
station to take the train for the Genesee docks. 


After a mad scramble, however, all were at last 
aboard and the good ship Ontario Xo. '■2 slipped her 
moorings promptly at one o'clock. So we started 
on the Second .\nnual Outing of the Kodak Park 
Foremen's Club, bound for Cobourg. 

After a hurried rush for the desirable places on the 
decks, with the hmch baskets and boxes stowed 
away, we lined up along the railing and waved and 
cheered at anything until we passed the light house. 

Here everyone proceeded to attack, in block forma- 
tion, the afore-mentioned lunch baskets. A short 
time was allowed for that overloaded feeling to work 
off, and then "our own Jimmy" Hart took up his 
megaphone and started to assemble the people on 
the upper deck for the sports of the afternoon. 

There were mass games and guessing contests and 
children's stunts, each event causing its own share of 
amusement. The featiu-e of the afternoon was the 
tug-of-war between teams captained by Frank 
Hauser and John Shepherd. Both sides boasted of 
good men and heavy, the betting being about even. 
After a long and strenuous pull, Frank's team won. 
Through it all, Harris Tuttle with his "movie" 
camera, and "Jim" Trayhern with an assorted 
collection of all kinds of Kodaks and cameras, took 
picture after picture from every conceivable place 
and position. 

At last the boat docked in Cobourg, and we all 
went ashore. We walked up a block and down two 
to the end of the town, where we found upon inquiry 
that we were in Victoria Park. Some of us danced 
to t>-pical Canadian music and the rest of us had 
another ice cream. 

The retm-n trip was equally delightful. James 
"Ziegfeld" Hart again in charge, showed us what 
he had been doing on his vacation the two weeks 
previous to the Outing, and had everything with the 
exception of Al Jolson, and Jack Dempsey on his 
bill. Everyone who could possibly do so crowded 
in the reception saloon and some more of us sat 
outside on the deck where we could at least hear 
the music. 





jMuch too soon, the lights on the American shore 
came into sight, we were on our way back to the 
city and the Outing had become history. 

The Committee in charge is to be congratulated 
on the able manner in which everything was handled. 
"Jack" Schaeffer, George Izard, "Ben" Castle, 
"Jimmy" Hart, "Charlie" Casey, "Bob" Weber, 
"Doc" Slater, "Jim" Ward and "Charlie" Suter 
are the ones who put it over. Three hearty cheers 
and a tiger, boys.

After the summer intermission, meetings of the 
Camera Club are to be resumed on Tuesday, 
September 20th. This will be a business meeting 
to make arrangements for the fall and winter 
activities. The members are urged to be present, 
promptly at 5:45 in the Assembly Hall. 

The first lecture of the 1921-1922 season will be 
given the latter part of October. This feature of the 
Club activity was very j)()i)ular last winter. The 
Committee in charge of llie program for the coming 
months is at work, and will announce a completed 
schedule in the near future. The practice adopted 
last spring of having supper served before the 
meetings and lectures, resulted in a much larger 
attendance, and will be continued this year. 

Entries for the Third Semi-.\nnual Exhibit will 
close on Friday, October 28th. The oj)ening date 
of the Exhibits is November 1st. This Exliibit will 
be devoted to "vacation" {)ictures and tiie usual 
awards will be made. Menibers are urged to jire- 
pare their work in plenty of time, as it is hoped to 
make this the largest and best contest we have vet 


Kodak Park's latest sport activity, golf, has 
taken quite a hold, and the success of the first season 
warrants its continuation. Preparation for the 
handicap tournament has been under way since 
spring. Records of the scores made by the players 
have been kept and from these handicaps were 
assigned for the final play-otf this month. 

Only four men have been placed in Class "A", 
Fred and George Willis; Walter Taylor; and Albert 
Meyne. The playing of these men is somewhat 
above the average, and they will be forced to give 
some advantage to their opponents. 

At the end of the tournanient, it is planned to 
have the Champion and Runner-up from Kodak 
Park meet the persons finishing in similar positions 
in the Kodak Office tournament, which is being 
conducted along like lines, for the Championship 
of the Eastman Com{)any. There are a few good 
players at llic Ilawk-Eye and Camera Wt)rks. and 
if [lossible to make satisfactory arrangements, they 
will also l)e brought in for competition. Here's 
iiopiiig it can be done, for the more the merrier, and 
the greater the honor for those winning. 





We're inclined to be just a trifle downhearted 
about our baseball team this year. As far as 
material is concerned, we seem to have plenty, and 
of fairly good caliber, on the average. Some of the 
boys who are available are mighty good, away 
above the average, but somehow we have been 
unable to win even a fair share of our games. There 
are times when the spirit is the best, and then, for 
apparently no reason at all, it is lacking. In prac- 
tice, particularly the last few weeks, the team as a 
unit was all that might be desired, but when game 
time came we f inished at the short end. ____ ____ 

The teams of Hawk-Eye, Camera Works and even 
Kodak Office seem to have the "something" that is 
necessary to win games and are doing it regularly, 
from Kokak Park at least, but when the season 
closes and we put away our paraphernalia, we are 
not going to "cry over spilt milk." What we are 
going to do is to try to work up whatever is neces- 
sary to have a real good ball team and have that 
team ready when the season opens next year. 


Last spring, Kodak Park boasted of the best team 
ever signed to represent a Rochester soccer club, 
and only lack of practice and playing together kept 
them from winning every match played. Prospects 
for the fall were unusually good until the misfortime 
of losing three of the best men befell the outfit. 
Morrison, Clegg, and Scott, the latter rated as the 
best inside left ever seen in the city, were lost to the 
Park, making a big hole in the Kodak's off'ense. This 
loss in a measure is compensated by the return of 
Frearson, a former Kodak player. 

Play will be resumed the latter part of the month, 
and a strong bid will be made for the honors in 
the local League. At present, Kodak Park is one 
point behind the Celtics, whom they met early in 
the season. 

The officers of the Kodak Park Soccer Club for 
this season are: President, George Izard; Vice- 
President, Ralph Breary; Treasurer, Lee Rife; 
Manager, Edward Allardice; and Secretarv, Fred 





When we stop to think that the city of Rochester 
has one of the finest Hospitals for Infants in the 
country, and that we are helping to pay for the 
treatment of tlie poor little unfortunates through 
our contribution to the Community Chest, we 
should feel mighty proud. Aside from feeling of 
pride we should also feel — interest, and show it. 

Walk out Beach Avenue the next time you are 
at the Lake, and see how pleased Miss Jones, the 
Superintendent, will be to show you through your 

Almost two hundred sick babies and children 
have been treated at the Infants' Summer Hospital 
so far this year and there is still another month 
before it closes; all without charge of any kind to 
anyone. Your money helps to do this. Isn't it 
worth a great deal to know that you are helping to 
make some sick or crippled child well or more com- 

This was the first visit to the Hospital for most of 
the Committee, and words fail to express the fine 
impression it left with them. The excellent condi- 
tions, cleanliness, and efficient care all go to make 
up an ideal institution. Besides Miss Jones, the 
Superintendent in charge, there are resident phy- 
sicians, as well as visiting physicians who call every 
day and see each patient. A staff of nurses is on 
duty and a graduate dietitian prepares the food for 
the youngsters. The hospital will be open until 
October 1st, and, on behalf of Miss Jones, we urge 
you to pay a visit.

Lovers of the terpsichorean art will be happy to 
learn that the K. P. A. A. is planning to run the 
usual series of dances during the coming winter. 
The first event will be on Friday, October ^Sth. 

The Committee, with Dr. D. E. Reid, President 
of the Association, as Chairman, is already at work. 
Numerous stunts and schemes are being considered. 
The intention is to make the parties this winter of 
a most novel nature, and the ingenuity of those in 
charge will be taxed to the utmost to provide this 
distinction, as practically every conceivable novelty 
has been furnished at the Kodak Park parties in the 

As usual, tickets will be sold in advance and the 
efforts of the Committee in charge will be devoted 
to having the attendance as exclusively of Kodak 
Park employees and their friends as possible. 

Excellent music is promised; so you are assured 
of a good dance with plenty of interesting accom- 
panying features. 


Machinists of Department 40 Laboratory, held 
their second annual picnic at Sodus Point. 

Everyone reached the rendezvous in time for a 
delightful chicken dinner, which was served at the 
Harris House. 

Skipper Louis "Spike" Behrndt acted as host for 
a moonlight ride among the islands of Sodus Bay 
on his cruiser I.sland Queen. After a few thrilling 
"near accidents," the party reached Rochester 
again shortly after midnight. 

On Tuesday, August 16th, Anna E. Kurtz of^the 
Pay Roll Record Office, was married to James T. 
McCarthy at St. Peter's Church, LeRoy. Seventeen 
girl friends, formerly employed with Miss Kurtz, 
made the trip via automobile to attend the wedding. 
We extend to the newly married couple our best 
wishes for much happiness. 





At the present wTiting all matches in the first 
four rounds of the K. P. A. A. Men's Tennis Tour- 
nament have been played off with Joe Manilla, 
Oscar Sprague, Walter Kirner, Charles Flagg and 
Charles Thompson still in the running. Sixty-three 
entries were received for the 19'-21 tournament, and 
judging from the exceptionally few matches which 
went by default, the K. P. A. A. trophy is a much- 
coveted honor. The details have been in the hands 
of Dr. F. E. Ross of the Research Laboratory, 
whose untiring interest is in a large measure re- 
sponsible for the success of the season's tournament. 

To date, the Kodak Park team has played only 
the matches in the Rochester Tennis League, no 
effort having been made until the completion of 
this schedule to arrange independent games. Can- 
andaigua.and two or three other old rivals are clam- 
oring for a chance at the Park players and will 
probably be accommodated within the next few 

Kodak's win over Dewey made third place a pos-

conditions, is considered doing very well. Manager

appreciated, and have the distinction of being the 
best industrial outfit in the section, as well as the 
only team of the kind entered in the Rochester 


The employees of the Black Paper Coating De- 
partment held their annual outing at Grand View 
Beach. First the bunch tackled a five-course 
dinner served on the Hotel veranda, following 
which Albert J. Bowers, the department official 
photographer, took four or five "'shots" at the 
boys for a group picture. 

The ball game between the married and single 
men was won by the former, the score being 2-2 to 8. 
The feature of the game was a throw from left field 
to the plate by "Pete" Haus.

to Proprietor Rossenbach for his courteous treat- 

We extend to Bessie Draffin of the Plate Depart- 
ment our sincere s^Tupathy in her ilhiess, and hope 
that she will soon be able to be with us again.

The exceptionally hot weather during July made 
it impossible to open the summer schedule of the 
K. P. A. A. Noon-Hour Baseball League as custom- 
ary, and days when it was possible to play were 
devoted to exhibition games with other Industrial 
outfits, or practice games between the League teams. 
The time lost will result in only two series being 
played this year, the summer schedule being elimi- 
nated and the fall games extended to the end of the 
season. Four teams are again entered — the Legion, 
Pipe Shop, Office, and Drafting, composed of play- 
ers picked at will from the different departments. 
Each manager signs his players and this prevents 
their playing with another team unless voluntarily 
released by the team to which tliey belong. More 
satisfactory results are obtained through this plan 
than under the old system of more teams and the 
restricting of players to the department a team 
represents. Another objection to the old plan was 
that good men were kept out of the game because 
their departments were not in the League. The 
present arrangement is better in every way, and bet- 
ter and faster games are possible. 

President John Shepherd is putting the necessary 
"pep " into his League and looms as a possible 
candidate for Judge Landis's job some time in the

Park on July 26th. after an absence of six weeks, 
during which time he visited France and England, 
in company with Mr. Eastman. 

Viola Jostmeir of the Film Order Office was 
married to Carl Nolte on August 5th. We wish 
Viola and Carl all sorts of good luck.

The annual election of officers of the Premo Club 
took place recently in the club room. The only change 
in the personnel of these officers is the election of 
Homer Ransom, of the Metal Department as Vice- 
President, to fill the place which has been so well 
taken care of by Clarence Owen of the Experimen- 
tal Department. Mr. O.ven declined to accept a 
re-election owing to otiier business of importance 
which he is obliged to attend to this season. 

The following officers were re-elected for the 
season 1921-192^2: 

President John H. McKenny 

Vice-President Homer Ransom

"We are on our way and we don't know where 
we will end up. " These were the words of Mr. and 
Mrs. Sydney McLatchie when they came in to bid 
us good-bye. "Sid" says it was pretty hard for hira 
to make up his mind to leave the Premo after work- 
ing in one place for eight years. 

Mr. and Mrs. McLatchie apparently have no 
destination in view as they expect to get west of the 
Rockies before winter sets in, and next summer will 
land somewhere to make a home. Their many 
friends at the Premo wish them the best of luck and 
a safe journey.

The first Photographic Class of the Camera 
Works, held under the supervision of Fred W. 
Brelnn, has completed its sessions and the records 
of the members speak for themselves. When we 
state that one thousand two hundred negatives 
were submitted for criticism, and only one himdred 
fifty-six were failures — a percentage of thirteen — 
we can readily see the value of personal contact in 
teaching. All members of this Class, known as 
"B, " were amateurs, in the true sense of the word. 
The first rolls of film proved that knowledge of 
almost all the rudiments of photography was 
lacking, and, in consequence, personal criticism and 
advice were given to all students, apart from the 
lessons taught en masse. 

The second class will start very shortly, definite 
plans having been made to accommodate about one 
hundred students. The curriculum will include the 
estimating of distances, exposures, diaphragm stops, 
shutter, speed composition, and illustrations of why 
failures so often occur. In order to relieve the 
technical part of the programme, a motion picture 
machine and projection screen have been installed in 
the covered court-way, the entrance to which, 
while the cla.sses and motion pictures are in progress. 

is through the Foreign Shipping Department on 
Piatt Street. The only stipulation of enrollment is, 
that each member must regularly attend the lessons, 
and must submit for examination the required 
number of exposed rolls of film. Whenever possible, 
cameras and film are supplied to students, or may be 
purchased in the Industrial Relations Department 
at wholesale price. 

If proof were needed as to whether the students 
can "take" pictures now, one has only to look at 
the splendid collection of prints which has been on 
exhibit throughout the factory and office.

Harold is so proudly displaying. 

Much of the success of the six-team league is due 
to that valuable helper of the Recreation Club — 
Norman Robinson. "Normie" took a hand in 
umpiring as well as managing this season, and the 
thanks of the players and the club is rightly due to

By the time this magazine is published you will 
know whether or not the Camera Works Gardening 
Association has won the Trophy at the Rochester 
Exposition for the best industrial display of honie- 
gro^Ti vegetables. 

If luck falls our way, we shall have won first prize 
four years in succession. Probably you know that 
the Trophv this vear was donated bv our Recreation 

Don't miss the garden exhibit when you visit the 
Exposition. Whether we win or not, we will have 
A-1 Specimens on show and next season you will be 
inspired to raise similar ones. No one knows the 
true flavor of vegetables until he can go into the 
garden and get them "as fresh as a daisy." 


One of our popular men in the Camera Works has 
had a pleasant surprise; that is, he has reached a 
point where he realizes what a gratifying thing it is 
to systematically save money, and forget you are 
saving it! 

The way it all happened dates back to the week 
ending November 25, 1916, when the company 
instituted the "Emergency Wage." Those of us 
who were getting over twenty dollars a week, you 
will recollect, received three in addition, while 
others earning under twenty dollars received fifteen 
percent of their week's pay. 

How many men or women were far-sighted 
enough to use the addition as a real emergency 
proposition? One man, we have learned, deposited 
his first week's extra wage and (expressing himself in 
the fact that "what you never have you never 
miss"), he promptly forgot his three dollars — after 
sanctioning the payroll department to make the 
deduction. Result — a seven hundred and fifty 
dollar payment on a house. 

Have you ever tried to save systematically.^ It's 
siu-prising how easy it is. After the first few weeks 
you do not notice the "missing" dollars from your 
pay envelope. What better opportunity could a 
person have than the medium of our Savings and 
Loan Association.^ 

Just try it. 

The "sacrifice" you make is worth its WAIT 
(weight) in gold! 


We regret to annoimce the passing away of two 
familiar figures in the Camera Works, Julius Beran 
and Howard Mason. 

Julius Beran, Inspector of Kodaks on the fourth 
level, had been with us since the year 1900. He 
had been ailing for some time, and we had hopes of 
his complete recovery when he went away to a 
sanitarium to rest. However, he became a victim 
of^ pleurisy, and died during July. 

Howard Mason will be greatly missed, not only 
in social circles, but among sportsmen. Last 
March, he underwent an operation which apparently 
was successful but later, complications developed, 
ending in his death. 

Sj-mpathy is extended to the relatives of these 
two popular men, and we sincerely regret their 




William Carroll — better known as "Bill" — is, at 
the time of ■wTiting, just starting on his vacation to 
Georgian Bay. He told me that the company was 
paying most of his expense si 

As they say down South: "How come?" 

I naturally started to find out — for no one offered 
to pay for my holiday, and — I did. Sure enough, 
"Bill" had a fifty-dollar roll, which he obtained in 
regular order from the cashier, paid by way of a 
suggestion voucher. 

Just another proof that it isn't always the com- 
plicated mechanical suggestion that gets the large 

"Bill" operates, or rather has the handling of, 
the metal cutting machines, which are fed with 
sheets of steel or brass, passed under a knife, and 
cut to required size. The strips falling out at the 
back of the machine onto a platform, were gath- 
ered up, placed on trucks, and wheeled to their niche 
in the Stores Department. 

The idea was just this. "Bill" removed a truss 
rod, and had the trucks converted so as to fit 
directly under the slot where the metal falls. This 
method not only saved doulile handling of the cut 
strips, but also did away with the possibilities of 

scratching the metal, some of which is u.sed for 
finished parts. 

Very simple, isn't it.^ The strips fall evenly, and 
pile themselves, and that's practically all the idea 
amounted to. You see it doesn't take a master 
mechanic to get big awards for suggestions. Whose 
turn is it next? 


We had a scare the other day. Heard that a 
little bunch of men were making application to the 
Secretary to promote a "Crap" Shooting Club. 
Sure enough the application was received, but it 
read "Trap Shoofiitg.'' 

Another sport added to the available list of past- 
times for Recreation Club members! Fifteen men, 
from various parts of the factory, have formed 
themselves into an organization, and will bang the 
"rocks" every Saturday afternoon until the end of 

"Al" Steigman has been appointed Captain and 
"Herb" Collins Vice-Captain. The range chosen 
will probably be at Manitou or Long Pond. 

If you wish to see the boys in action, just ask " Al" 
or "Herb" when and where they kill the "pigeons." 


Picnics, picnics, one right after the other! Every- 
body, everjTvhere, is gathering together, running 
races, playing ball, getting out of breath, discovering 
muscles they liad no idea existed at all, and eating 
innumerable specimens of delicatessen art. 

The photograph shows a group of picnicers at 
Manitou, where the Industrial Relations Depart- 

ment and friends did most everything one is 
supposed to do at an outing of this kind. If smiles 
count, it should have been a bully affair, and it 
certainly was. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed him- 
self, and the Editor wishes he had sufficient space 
to prove that all our department picnics from the 
State Street factory show the folks looking just as 
happy as the ones jMctured below. 





I am one of the many employees who are fortimate 
(?) enough to own an automobile. I have questioned 
the word "fortunate" because it hinges on 
how I drive, and again, on how fast the other fellow 
wishes to pass me. 

'' The other evening, while going home from work, 
I was driving easy (of course they all say that, but 
I really was) when, without even a toot of the horn, 
a car whizzed by. The next moment I heard the 
grind of brakes, somids of breaking glass, and a loud 
scream. I saw the car skid as it attempted to stop 
instantaneously. (Right there I proved the asser- 
tion I made of driving "easy," for , if I hadn't, my 
car would be lying in the ditch — and I, in all prob- 
ability, would have completed a double fmieral) 

Upon alighting, I found a small boy — one of those 
chubby freckle-faced real American youngsters — 
lying in the road — just about conscious, and that's 
all — with l)lood streaming from an ugly gash on his 
head, and with a broken arm, to say nothing of a 
twisted ankle and various bruises. A bent mass of 
frame-work and spokes told mutely of the remains 
of a good "bike." The little fellow, who had just 

as much right on the highway as any motor car 
had evidently been riding absolutely witliin the law, 
on his right side of the road. But the "speed- 
hound" who dashed past my bus didn't reckon with 
that, and the consequence was a head-on collision. 

Oh, the pity of it! The folly of always trying to 
pass the car ahead! Had the driver sounded his 
horn, he might have avoided maiming someone's 
precious boy, a buckled car, a big bill — somebody 
has to pay for damages, and, most important of all, 
severe pain, and a Mother's sorrow. 

It might liave been your boy, or mine. It was 
someone's boy, and all that trouble because "Safety 
First " was the last consideration tliat counted. Why 
is it that in every hundred automobile accidents 
records show that seventy-three per cent, are 
avoidable? Don't let us get hardened to safety. It 
is not a byword to look at, and then promptly forget. 
I cannot think of another word in our language which 
means so much. Lives, money, material, health, 
prosperity, and everything we have, or should 
possess, are contingent on that one little word.'' 

Walking, driving, working, playing, let's remember 
Safety First! 


We like to place our cards on the table. Aces up 
one's sleeve is not the policy of the Camera Works 
management, nor is it on the Recreation Club's 
schedule. After having a permanent club for ten 
months, the Board of Managers has learned several 
interesting facts about how to proportion the 
budget, and also about how to cater to the largest 
number of people interested in any one phase of 
social or recreational activities. 

Before seeing how the money was spent, let us 
review some of the things the club has done since 
October 1st, 1920. 

We have maintained about six hundred people 
actually engaged in sports, besides giving a free 
smoker, a girls' party, and five dances run below 
actual cost. Each member has been supplied free 
of charge with a club badge and a copy of the 
Constitution and By-Laws of the organization. We 
have never refused to equip a league, a 
department team, a picnic, or an individual with 
necessary accessories for sport. We have, of course, 
a fair stock of equipment, such as basketball suits, 
soccer outfits, clubs, masks and tennis nets, which 
will relieve us considerably on next year's resources. 
As to the expenditure, assuming the figure spent 
as one dollar, these are the approximate proportions. 

Bowling 23 cents 

Badges 19 cents 

Baseball 11 cents 

Smoker and Girls' Party 10 cents 

Basketball 9 cents 

Indoor ball 7 cents 

By-Laws and Constitution 9 cents 

Gardening Association 6 cents 

Breeders' Association 3 cents 

Soccer Football and Tennis 1 cent 

Dances 1 cent 

Incidental expenses 1 cent 

Easily spent, isn't it? But not so easily propor- 
tioned to satisfy everyone! With a membership of 
over two thousand people, and dozens of various 
hobbies and sports to choose from, the executive 
officers of the club are pretty well occupied as to 


how to follow the present-day slogan of "The 
People Be Pleased.'' The Board of Managers is 
striving to get every member actually sharing in the 
"doings." If you don't dance, perhaps you play 
ball, or — possibly you enjoy checkers, or gardening. 
Everyone has a hobby or pastime of some sort or 
another, and, if in any way possible, we want to 
co-operate with you, and still further add to the 
growing list of activities. 

This month, September — the budget for next 
year will be decided and a greater proportion will 
be given to social gatherings. If you have any 
suggestions, send them to the Secretary and we will 
gladly discuss them. 

Conditions being favorable, the yearly member- 
ship campaign for members will take place before 
very long. Sell the idea to any new-comers in your 
department. You know what the Recreation Club 
has done, and what it can do, especially if you reach 
a one hundred per cent. mark. The more members 
we have, the greater amount of money we can spend. 

It's your club. Work for it, and use its service. 


Of course, none of you folks need to be reminded 
what a splendid opportunity the city of Rochester 
offers in evening sciiools. AYe have received posters 
from the Mechanics Institute offering fifteen distinct 
subjects and the Industrial Relations Department is 
ready to enroll prospective students. There is a 
special form which must be filled out by employees 
in order to receive a refund on their tuition fees, 
providing their status is satisfactory. The average 
of successes ranks very high among tlie men and 
women from the Camera Works, many of whom 
have discovered how, by study, they can improve 
their jobs, and, in consequence, improve their 

Take advantage of this chance for betterment. 
All that is necessary is a common school education,

On Tuesday , September 6th, at the Church of Our 
Lady of Victory, Louis E. Ayette, of the Assembhng 
Department, and Minnie M. Plain were married. 
The bride and groom left for Clexelaiul where they 
spent their honeymoon. Upon returning to Roches- 
ter, they will occupy their new home at 1967 Clifford 



The accompanying picture shows just a small 
group of our "Old-Timers." It represents about 200 
years of service, about Ho years with "Kodak," the 
remainder dating back to the days of the Folmer & 
Schwing Manufacturing Company, Century Camera 
Company, and the Rochester Optical Company. We 
expect to show another group later. 


Harriet E. Patchin of the Production Department 
and Alfred E. Hotham of Brooklyn, were married 
Wednesday noon, August 31st, in this city. The 
ceremony was performed })y the Rev. H. C. VVhedon, 
rector of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Following 


the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Botham left for a short 
motor trip into Canada. They will then motor to 
New York City. Their future home is Bay Ridge, 
Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Miss Patchin was transferred to this plant from 
Kodak Office, and, although she has been here but a 
few months, she has won many friends throughout 
the plant. 

Our best wishes go with them.

Anna Burns, of the Covering Department, and

morning, August 24th, at the Church of the Im- 
maculate Conception. 

J. Elmer Roland has very kindly opened his home 
at the Lake to the folks of his Department, for a 
sausage and corn roast, which will probably be held 
at an earlv date. 

William Vogt. of the Inspection Department, has 
been absent from the plant for several weeks. 
"Bill" is suffering from a nervous breakdo\\-n. We 
sincerely hope he will have a speed\' recovery. 

We welcome the following new members of our 
office force: Doris Sanford of the Accounting 
Department, who comes to us from Hawk-Eye, 
and Winifred Renner, who was formerly employed 
by the General Railway Signal Company. 


On August 4th, George T. Roche, our Works 
Accountant (and everybody's friend) underwent a 
severe operation at the General Hospital, which 
proved to be successful. He has now returned to 
his home and is improving rapidly. We hope to see 
him with us again soon. 

In our last issue, we congratulated Frank Howell 
of the Assembling Department upon his recent 
marriage. We now learn that he has gone a step 
further; Frank is building a very cozy bungalow on 
.Margaret Street, in the S'ineteenth Ward. 

Did you ever try to raise any money on your rent 
receipt? Well, it can't be done, but a receipt from 
the Eastman Savings and Loan Association will 
pave the way to "a home of your own." Try it, 
and get the laugh on your landlord. 


It has been said that if Julius Caesar had put 
one cent in the bank of Rome at 3 per cent, com- 
pound interest, in twenty-four years it would have 
amounted to -2 cents; in forty-seven years it would 
have amounted to 4 cents; in ninety-five years it 
would have amounted to 8 cents, and if the sum 
had been left in the bank it would have doubled 
something like eighty times by the year 1921, and 
that one cent would have amounted in these 1900 
years to more money than there has been coined in 
the world to date. 

The moral is: Make a little progress each year; 
invest in the profit; don't speculate. Be satisfied 
with a reasonable return on your money. Put a 
few cents or dollars in the bank each week and 
watch them grow, — Mead Co-operation.

On Saturday, August 13th, the Second Annual 
Outing of the K. O. R. C, was held at Seneca Park. 
About five hundred Kodak Office emi)loyee.s, witli 
their wives and children, left on special cars with a 
rousing good band and plenty of suckers and pea- 
nuts for everyone. Immediately upon their arrival 
at the park, the big feed of hots, ice-cream, and 
sandwiches was started and continued on throughout 
the afternoon. 

It was a big day, and everyone had a fine time. 
Much of the success of the picnic was due to 
"Charlie" Howard, who, in addition to taking care 
of several minor details, selected all of the prizes, 
and to Milton Saner, who .so efficiently took charge 
of the athletic events. These were run off as follows:

had "Picnic Ahead" signs posted along the route to 
Grand View. The instrumental music was furnish- 
ed by members of the Society Syncopaters, includ- 
ing Mrs. Attridge of the Finishing Department. 
There was a grand prize drawing and Fern Mac 
Donald won a genuine Whixwangle (a queer-looking 
beast) while Jack Gunderson, one of the invited 

guests from the Sales Department, won the touring 
car, but found that it had to be pushed. Freda Ryan 
was presented with a tool chest for her lately ac- 
quired "flivver." 

The dancing, with the attractiveness of 
the bathing, somewhat upset the sports program, 
but some of the events were rim off and four 
valuable prizes awarded. 

The finance committee, Harold McCabe, reported 
a deficit of $.05 and in view of this, it was suggested 
that other picnickers (including the Sales Depart- 
ment) get some pointers from the Service Crowd. 




^lae Mac Kelvey has been appointed reporter

No, this is not a poster of a well-known aerial 
circus performer, then again it is not a trick film. 
It's a trick, however, as well as a gift, and the man 
who does it is Fred Lytle of Maintenance Depart- 


Have you ever wondered at the gloss and trans- 
parency of the Kodak Office windows, even as far up 
as the dizzy height of the 16th story? Well, Fred 
deserves credit for that. Roped in precariously on 
the narrow window sills, he turns his back on the 
world below and devotes himself to the art of 
clearing your vision for you. The well-known 
advertisements of Bon Ami represent an amateur 
performance compared to Fred's. He not only 
gives you a thrill as he works but he brings the 
thrill nearer with every stroke. Instead of vanish- 
ing to a "fade-out" he gradually emerges from 
indistinctness to a clear cut "close-up." 

They tell us that in these days the world needs 
men of vision. All hail to the artist then, who helps 
to make our vision possible! 

Gladys Eastmond of the Advertising Department 
who has been ill for the past eight months died on 
July 18th at the lola Sanitarium. We extend our 
deepest symathy to her parents. 

Mary Byere of the Advertising Department was 
married on August 4th to Henry Mensing. Our 
best wishes, Mary. 

Not all losses are regrettable when they mean 
happiness to the person lost. Ella D. Servis of the 
Billing Department has left to become the wife of 
Leroy L. Compson. The best wishes of the 
department go with her.

The First Annual Outing of the Industrial Re- 
lations Department was held on Saturday, July 
23d, at Manitou Beach. There were autos enough 
for everyone, and an excellent dinner was awaiting

"Chief" Charles H. Thompson was in charge of 
the sports, and ran the events off in fine style.

"Tom" Harri.son of the Billing Department feels

his homestead. The happy mother is Alma Price 
Harrison also formerly of the Billing Department. 

Everybody is glad to see Maude Gregory back

Department. Maude has been out eight weeks on 
account of illness. 


The Testers and Packers were pleasantly sur- 
prised, at noon recently when Mrs. Nellie \'aughn

years, to pay them a visit. 

Mrs. \'aughn was happily employed in this 
department for several years, coming here from 
England in 1913.

Although its original schedule was completed 
some time ago, the Indoor League has continued to 
function as Hawk-Eye's official entertainer during 
the noon hour. The Lucky Strikes have apparently 
piled up a safe lead, with the Beechnuts second. 
Steady playing has develoj)ed such famous comedi- 
ans as Ralph Burhans and Fred ZoUweg, not to 
mention "Speedy" Witz. 

A picked team tackled an aggregation from the 
Main Office on July twenty-first. The Hawk-Eye 
wit didn't go so well against the Main Office pitch- 
ing, and the State Street hoys blanked us, 4-0. 
Burhans is a glutt n for punishment, for he invited 
them down to our hilly field again early in August 
and took another trimming to the tune of 3-0. In 
the latter game, however, our team showed greater 
ability and aggressiveness. 

Probably the noisiest game was that played a few 
days later between " Weldon's Pets" and the Hawk- 
Eye All-Stars. The former won a hectic contest in 

which the fur, particularly that of one of the um- 
pires, threatened to fly several times. 

The "Pets" and the rest will probably play until 
they have to use mittens and skates, judging by 
their enthusiasm. Long may they play, for their 
games supply as much fun and exercise as any 
activity that Hawk-Eye has ever seen. 


Our own Martin Tipple, umpire extraordinary 
at a number of Hawk-Eye games, has been going 
great guns as official arbiter in the Erie-Wyoming

First Baseman, Hawk-K.vo Baseball Tear 


Captain, Hawk-Eye Baseball Team 




The history of Hawk-Eye picnics seems to be a 
chronicle of shattered records. This year. Chair- 
man "Johnnie" N ass and his committees had their 
work cut out for them, for they liad the record of a 
well-nigh perfect outing in 1920 to shoot at. Not 
only to make the affair on August (ith a success, but 
to make it compare favorably with its forerunner 
was no picayune job, but they did both — and more. 
To say that, in spite of the passing "soft times," it 
was Hawk-Eye's greatest picnic, is strong language, 
but true nevertheless. What's that, Van.^ You 
couldn't go? Well, sir, it was the smoothest running 
outing in the memory of man, — absolutely and 
without exception. Why! — But we might as well 
start at the beginning. 

The larger part of the crowd, with Lampham's 
Band, made the trip to Manitou Beach in chartered 
cars. On their arrival, no time was lost in starting 
the much-touted ball game between the single and 
married men. It was a scream — for the bachelors, 
because they took kindly to George Diehl's offerings 
and won the title, and Mr. Higgins's cigars, by a 
goodly margin. 

Thereupon, everybody made a bee-line for the 
grove, where Odenbach had set up a big hollow 
square and loaded it with a splendid lunch. Every- 
body took kindly to that. The quality and variety 
of the "eats" were above criticism and, what is 
more, everyone in the first line-up was served 
within a few minutes. 

The "Outingers" settled their lunch by resisting 
"Jack" Downey's efforts to arrange them for the 
group photograph. Then John Rearson took 
charge and uncovered a few new champions in the 
sports. Ruth Kurtz once again demonstrated her 
sprinting prowess, but Madeline Boase displaced 
Ezra Myers as the prize pie-punisher. Leo Felerski 
and Fred Von Deben proved to be the fastest runners 
in their respective classes. 

The kiddies' races were well contested. Tney 
were bound to be, because there were about as many 
youngsters on the grounds as there were grown-ups. indispensable factors in the success of any 
picnic romped and ate lollypops and peanuts and 
drank orangeade to their hearts' content. No 
need to ask them whether the party "went across. '>

Then came the ball game with the Main Office. It 
probably wasn't so very interesting for the visitors, 
but we didn't mind the 11-4 .score in our favor. We 
didn't even care, when pitcher "Hash" of the 
opposition got mad and threw the ball out into left, 
Drabinski fielding the heave perfectly. It was the 
sort of game that a picnic crowd enjoys, and fitted 
in perfectly with the other happenings of Hawk-Eye's 
gala day. 

About this time the weather committee, which 
had been putting off the long predicted showers all 
day, appeared to be weakening. The refreshment 
committee therefore hustled out its sandwiches and 
peanuts for the final bite, while George Willis and 
his orchestra satisfied the cravings of the dance 
fiends in the pavilion. 

And so the party ended as happily and smoothly 
as it had begun. 


George Kosel just laughs when you tell him that 
present conditions aren't going to do a thing but 
ruin the bowling team this year. Hard luck talk 
doesn't worry him a bit. He avers that all indica- 
tions are for a cracker-jack line-up, — providing the 
proper sup{)ort is forthcoming. There is plenty of 
young blood around the plant to stop the gaps in 
last year's team, if not to improve it, and all embryo 
alley artists, as well as seasoned veterans are urged 
to notify Kosel immediately of their intention to 
try for the team. George isn't saying much on the 
point but we suspect that he wants to get away to 
a flying start and perhaps steal a march on some 
well-known opponents in the Camera Leagne. 

Albert Hardies and Carl Fischer have been in the 
Adirondacks for a large part of the summer, tickling 
their silver saxophones and are said to be past 
masters now. AH of which bodes well for the 
fortunes of the Hawk-Eye Orchestra next winter.

Rumor has it that the mails are carry- 
ing Kodak-ward at the present writing a 
challenge from the Taylor Instrument 
Company team for the city industrial 
championship. Hawk-Eye won this title 
last year in two straight games from Art 
in Buttons, the I.A.R.A. bunting holders. 

Now, the Taylor boys, holders of the 
1921 flag in the Industrial circuit, want 

to meet the winners in the Kodak League 
in a best -two-out-of -three games series 
for the city title. 

This fall blue-ribbon series is fast be- 
coming a fixture in Rochester sport annals, 
and there seems to be little doul)t that 
this month will see the title fought out 
again. More powder to you, boys — let's 
keep the honor in the family ! 


Hawk-Eye Manager 
'^ Doc" Craib comes from a long line of ardent 
players and baseball fans, and has followed the game — 
particularly the semi-pro side of it, closely for a 
number of years. "Doc" first interested himself in 
Hawk-Eye's team last year. While he had never had 
actual expereience ivith the managerial reins before 
coming to Hawk-Eye, his services as a steady worker, 
and a booster of last years team made him the logical 
successor for George Brennan. And the results have 
shown that it itas a icise choice! 

Camera Works Manager 
"Gone are the days when my heart icas young and 
gay," says Lee Voder, "but when it comes to baseball, 
just icatch us!" Voder has been in the baseball lime- 
light at the Kodak-Brownie plant for eleven years, has 
been a player on all the representative teams, and has 
acted as manager for most of the .<iuccessful ones. Lee 
is also a first-division bowler. His boys don't always 
win the pennant, but you can bet money on 'em to 
finish one-two. 





ON August loth, with the 1921 season 
coming into the stretch, "Doc" 
Craib's Hawk-Eye battlers were still set- 
ting the pace for the entire field with a 
half -game margin over Camera Works. 
During the preceding month the lead was 
held both by Kodak Office and by Camera 
Works, but on August 13th, "Lefty" 
McCormick pulled the Iron Man stunt 
and pitched Hawk-Eye to two victories 
in one afternoon over Kodak Park and 
Camera Works. As a result, he boosted 
his team back to the top rung of the 

The Kodak Office boys took a vacation 
on this date on account of the annual K. 
O. R. C. picnic, and so have figured in 
only one victory and two defeats since 
the last issue of the Magazine. The 
Hawk-Eye picnickers took the Office 
team to Manitou with them on the oc- 
casion of their Annual Outing, and pro- 
ceeded to hand the State Street boys a 
11 — 4 drubbing, this being the second year 
in which the Office boys have accepted the 
hospitality of the Hawk-Eye people and

proved the victims of Craib's steam- 

Camera Works has had a successful 
month, taking two close decisions from 
Kodak Office and Hawk-Eye, each by an 
8-7 score, and a walk-awaj^ from Kodak 
Park in which the final tally registered 
21-5. The only set-back for Yoder's 
men came at the hands of ]McCormack, 
aided and abetted by the well-known 
Hawk-Eye support. 

Kodak Park still continues to play 
in-and-out ball. On July SOth, Bircher's 
men put on the regular professional article 
and shut out Hawk-Eye 3-0, but their 
erratic work in the other three games 
resulted in easy wins for the opposing 

At the present writing, prospects still 
indicate a neck and neck race down the 
stretch between the old time rivals, Hawk- 
Eye and Camera Works, with a fair possi- 
bility of these two teams winding up in 
a tie, just as has happened in the two 
previous years of the League's existence. 

Kodak All -Stars 



Saturday, Oct. 1st 
Baseball Park 




"Pinkey" Rutan, of the Camera Works, 
was handicapped by a bad spike wound. 
Yoder's men needed the services of this hard- 
hitting youngster who, during the month pre 
vious to his injury, accounted for eight hits 
in fourteen times up, thereby keeping close 
on the heels of his early season average of 

Manager Bircher showed his versatility by 
working in the box against Hawk-Eye on 13th. "Birch" held the slugging 
"Hawks" to nine safeties, but the inability of 
his mates to touch McCormack lost the 

Leslie, the new third-sacker of Yoder's 
team, has also been doing some hea\y clout- 
ing. In one month he made six hits in 
fifteen times up. Of these, one was a homer, 
and two were doubles. 

"Fat" Wagner surprised his admirers on 
July !23rd by toeing the rubber four times, 
going through the entire game hitless for the 
first time this year. He has been out of the 
line-up on account of illness, and was sorely 
missed by the Office team. 

Did you notice that school-boy stufl^ that 
"Hash" McNeil pulled during the ball game 
at the Hawk-Eye Picnic.^ "Hash" is getting 
more like John Henrv Wisner everv dav. 

Things are rounding out rapidly for the All- 
Star exhibition at Baseball Park with the 
Rochester "Ints." Saturday, October 1st 
Those who expect to make the All-Star team 
should get busy with the willow. 

Baseball sure has its surprises. WTien the 
Kodak League first started in 1919, the 
Folmer-Century team which was runner-up 
for the pennant, had a port-side hurler, who 
was begging for a chance to show his wares. 
But, somehow he never got a chance. Now, 
today he is considered the best flinger in the 
League, and recently performed an "Iron 
Man" stunt by pitching Hawk-Eye to a 
double win in the Kodak League, August 
13th. Boy, page "Lefty" McCormack. 

Had Kodak Park produced the team it now 
has on the field at the beginning of the 
season, the League standings would have a 
different story to show. Never mind, Bircher, 
do what Manager Stallings is doing for 1922. 

"Skipper" Shepanski has been a big help to 
the Park crew and had they had him behind 
the bat and "Chicken" Melville on first 
earlier in the season, more games would 
have been won. 

Well, boys, after October 1st, we'll be able 
to tell you more about the feed that is 
contemplated to wind up the season. 



SATURDAY, October 1st, marks the 
grand finale of the local baseball 
season. On this date a picked team of 
Kodak All-Stars will meet George Stal- 
lings's Rochester International League 
team at Basel^all Park to wind up the 
local .season. Stallings to use 
his regular line-up, including Captain 
Fred Merkle, "Comet" Archdeacon, 
"Home Rim" Homer Summa, and "Big 
Bob" Fothergill, with either George King 
Murray or Jack Wisner on the hill. 

The Kodak aggregation is ])eing picked 
by Charles B. Tutty, Jr., Secretary of the 
Kodak League. Each team in the League 
will be given as equal representation as 
possible on the All-Star team, with no 
effort sacrificed, however, to secure the 
best possible line-up. With the material 
available, the Kodak aggregation should 
be easily the strongest amateur team in 
the city. Present indications are that 
the selection will be made from the fol- 
lowing men: 
Hawk-Eye: — ^McCormack, Moore, Petros- 

ke, Ingleby, Wiedemann, Van Lare. 
Kodak Park: — Forstbauer, Shepanski, 

Bircher, Manilla, Melville. 
Camera Works: — Rutan, Yoder, Kivell. 
Kodak Office: — Perrin, Eggert, Drabinski, 


To add still greater interest to the 
affair, sections will be roped off in the 
grandstand to permit rooters from each 
of the plants to sit together.

THERE is no more j^raiseworthy ambi- 
tion than the desire to save and to 
invest such savings so as to pro\'ide a 
comfortable hving when one's earning 
capacity is in the dechne. 

The greatest enemies to the successful 
realization of this ambition are the fake 
promoters and the salesmen of spurious, 
fradulent or doubtful stocks. 

Unfortunately the laws of the State of 
New York do not afford sufficient pro- 
tection against rascals of this sort and 
they have been able to conduct their 
operations here with the greatest freedom. 

There are too many Get-Rich-Quick 
Wallingfords going around — getting rich 
quick themselves at the expense of honest 
folks — too often — most often — at the 
expense of small investors. 

Most of these fakers are smooth 
workers and the schemers back of them 
are skilled in the use of printer's ink; 
we are going to lay bare some of their 
general characteristics and methods, so 
that you may recognize the species and 
so save yourself from loss. 

The ''Sucker Zy/.s/" 

Many of you have received a cleverly 
worded letter or printed booklet or circu- 
lar setting forth the wonderful profits to 
be made through the ])urchase of shares 
in some corporation, usually located in a 
distant state. How this concern obtained 
your name and address may have been a 
source of wonder to you. This is easily 
explained, however, when you figure how 
simple it is to secure names and addresses 
from the city directory — telephone book, 
or from lodge membershi]) lists. These 
lists of names are often ])asse(l on to other 
concerns ami are known as "sucker lists. " 

The "Follow-Up'' 

Usually if you have responded in any 
way to a sucker list invitation, and 
sometimes when you have not, you are, a 
little later, approached by a stock sales- 
man who is well trained and a smooth 

Always Future Profits 

The fake stock salesman rarely, if ever, 
talks of the merits of his proposition; 
rather he seeks to inflame the mind of his 
prospective victim with visions of huge 
future profits earned AAithout effort by the 
happy o^\ner of shares. If he is selling 
shares in a manufacturing concern, he talks 
but vaguely as to the present factory and 
output, and offers no figures to make 
good his claims as to market and ad- 
vantage over competing products. Xo 
matter what class of "securities" he is 
offering he plays up solely to the idea of 
future profits. 

A Sample Argument 

"Why! man, do you want to be just a 
plodder all your life? Do you want to 
spend all your days working for someone 
else.^ Invest all you can in this proposi- 
tion, and in a few years you can be riding 
around in your limousine. You are not 
too much of a coward to take a chance, 
are you? Look at the folks right here in 
your own town who invested in Kodak 
stock in its early days — they took a 
chance and now they are on easy street." 

The Answer to the "Kodak'' Argument 
Yes, the early investors in Kodak took 
a c-hance, l)ut it was a chanc-e of a far 
different sort. The founders of the 
Kodak Company were not just promoting 
a stock selling game; they did not ])eddle 
stock in Svracuse, Buffalo and Kalama- 


zoo; they had an idea which they beUeved 
in, and worked for unceasingly. The 
men behind it w^ere of known integrity 
and ability; they were home folks, and 
success came, becavise it was honestly 
earned and deserved. If any investment 
proposition possesses overwhelming points 
of superiority, the money to finance it can 
be found right at home — don't forget 
Future Profits Based on Past Successes 

It will always be well to bear in mind 
that not even a legitimate proposition 
can always be sure of success. Good 
profits have been made and a large 
business has been built up in the manu- 
facture of photographic film, but film 
cannot be successfully made in some- 
body's basement, nor without expert 
help, nor marketed at a profit without a 
strong selling organization behind it. 
This is equally true of many other com- 
modities now on the market. 

Keep Cool 

When you receive a glowing letter, or 
a thrilling prospectus relating to a stock 
selling plan, or receive a call from a 
promoter or salesman, don't get "all het 
up." Keep in mind the fact that you are 
being requested to part yourself from 
some of your hard-earned dollars ; this 
wdll serve to keep your temperature 
nearer to normal. If your questions are 
side-stepped, or answered in any way 
not to your satisfaction, do not be bluffed 
or bullied into parting with your money. 
Refuse to be unduly influenced by the 
opinion of an acquaintance or neighbor — 
use your own head. 

The Most Important Thing 

If, after calm consideration, the propo- 
sition offered seems to have some merit, 
the next thing to do is to ascertain the 
character of the men behind it, and their 
standing in their own community; this is 
of more importance even than the com- 
mercial possibilities of the project. 

If these men have an established 
reputation in their own community as to 

character and uprightness, then, you are 
taking a chance only as to commercial 
success. If they have not this reputa- 
tion, the proposition becomes at once a 
gamble with not a chance to win so far 
as you are concerned. 

If you invest in any new proposition, 
you must accept some risk. If the prop- 
osition is sound and the people behind 
it are honest, you accept only the chance 
that it will be a success. If it is only a 
stock-selling scheme, you have not a 
single chance — every card is stacked 
against you. 

How to Determine 

Many a prospectus affords glowing 
business histories of the men back of — 
or behind — the plans; these may or may 
not be strictly according to facts. Others 
gracefully refrain from such personal 
history for obvious reasons. 

The facts may be had by ^Titing to the 
Chamber of Commerce or Board of Trade, 
or one of the banks in the city or cities 
wherein these parties are located, or by 
means of a commercial agency report. 
Like all large organizations we have many 
facilities for obtaining information of 
this nature, and if you feel that the task 
is perhaps a bit beyond you, we will be 
glad to assist. A request to the Editor 
of the Kodak Magazine for aid in this 
direction will place such information as 
we are able to obtain at your disposal. 

Get facts, not dreams: then, if the total 
seems favorable, apply still another test; 
ask any banker how much he would loan 
you on the stock. 

The foregoing does not mean that 
there are no safe stock investments for 
the small investors — but it does mean — 
investigate before you invest. 

Children don't always inherit beautiful 
hands, hair and teeth. A little attention 
to those things when they are young wnll 
go a long ways toward their perfection 
when they have the care of them them- 
selves. — Munsingwear Xeivs 




IX less than one year's time the East- 
man Savings and Loan Association, 
composed of and officered entirely by em- 
ployees of the Eastman Kodak Company, 
has started over eight thousand men and 
women on a plan of systematic saving, 
and, in addition, has enabled one hundred 
and forty Kodak families to move into 
and enjoy homes of their own. 

In normal times this wholesome growth 
would have been cause for rejoicing; in 
the present period of industrial depres- 
sion with its inevitable lay-offs and lack 
of employment, this money laid by has 
proved a godsend. 

In many cases, had it not been for this 
bit laid by, unemployment would have 
had to be faced with practically nothing 
to tide over till better times. 

Over sixty thousand dollars have been 
returned to members of the Association 
to meet this temporary need. 

On the other hand it is highly encour- 
aging to note that in one plant alone, 
over three hundred members who have 
been laid off are still paying their dues in 
the Association. 

In almost every case of withdrawal, 
the member has expressed a most hearty 
appreciation of the plan that had enabled 

him to save and with it the hope that 
soon in the future he would again be 
permitted to resume his membership. 

It goes without saying that every 
member temporarily forced to withdraw 
will be welcomed back as a member 
if he is re-employed by the Eastman 
Kodak Company. 

There are a number of employees of 
the Eastman Kodak Company who are 
not members of the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association. These employees 
may not face unemployment, but no one 
can hope to be entirely exempt from 
sickness and other unanticipated em- 
ergencies when a reserve fund would be 
more than acceptable. Even if these 
emergencies should pass you by, you 
cannot too soon begin to save against the 
time when your earning days are past. 

We all have certain obligations to our 
fellow-men; those in a position to do so, 
even if they have to strain a point, should 
support this Association, which bv its 
plan has enabled their less fortunate 
fellow employees to meet an emergency. 

Our Association — the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association, must continue to 
grow to carry on in fullest measure its 
highly practical and l)eneficial })lans. 


IN the Camera Works section of the 
September Kodak Magazine, we told 
you something about the Photographic 
Class which Fred Brehm conducted 
throughout the summer for Camera 
Works employees. The record of this 
class was so exceptional, with only 13% 
failures out of l'-200 negatives submitted 
that we wanted you to see for yourselves 
some of the results they got. 

The group of jjictures shown on page 
2 forms a representative collection taken 
from the work of this class, after a period 
of instruction covering about sixteen 

weeks. Some of the members of the 
class were comparatively experienced 
photographers; others were entirely green 
at the game, but by the end of the 
course they were all taking ])ictures fully 
equal to those we have reproiluced. 
These results certainly speak well for the 
quality of work done both by the in- 
structor, and by the class. 

It is not the mistakes we make that 
retard us, but our inability or unwilling- 
ness to learn the lesson that these mis- 
takes teach us.

YOT' can find college graduates earn- 
ing a living as street car conductors, 
and you wall also find many men success- 
fully occupying high positions in the 
business world who have had but the 
rudiments of an eductation. 

It is very true, if a man '*has it in him," 
he will get where he wants to get, 
education or no education, but with a 
good education he will "arrive" far 
more easily. 

The uneducated, or poorly educated, 
man may have the mental capacity to do 
big things, but because of this lack he 
has to proceed much more .slowly. 

A knowledge of Latin and Greek is not 
an essential, but he who has it can more 
readily extend his vocabulary, and un- 
derstand the meaning of many of the 
out-of-the-ordinary words because he 
knows their derivation, and he can also 
far more readily learn foreign languages. 

Higher mathematics may in many 
walks of life seldom come into play, but 
there will come times when this knowledge 
will serve uncommonly well because the 

possessor can himself solve the problem 
without having to depend upon someone 
else, thus effecting a saving in time if 
nothing more. 

He who knows history, and is a student 
of literature and English finds a wide 
open, never-ending road to hours of 
happiness which he otherwise would 
never have discovered. 

You may feel that you are too old to 
undertake such studies, but you can 
never grow too old to enjoy the compan- 
ionship of good books. 

If you are not too old, it will rei)ay you 
manyfold to take advantage of some of 
the numerous courses of instruction open 
to those employed during the day. 

If you have children, any sacrifice you 
may make to aft'ord them an education 
will be well worth while. If you have 
suffered from lack of education, you know 
its handicap; give your children the 
better start. 

IT IS pretty generally agreed that some 
special interest outside of the regular 
hum-drum of routine existence is good for 
the average human being; in other words, 
ride a hobby. 

Hobbies range all the way from col- 
lections of dried flowers to the raising of 
blooded horses or cattle. 

One of the greatest assets in getting 
where you want to get is the power of 
concentration; the ability to hold the 
whole body and mind to the task to be 
done. But hiunaii machinery must have 
an occasional rest to do its best work, and 
so the ability to relax for a period is almost 
of equal value to the power to concen- 

The best form of relaxation is not just 
merely idleness — doing nothing, but the 
employment of the faculties in something 
that will afford enjoyment, and for the 
time being take you out of the ordinary 
run of your existence. 

Any hobby intelligently pursued is 
bound to be beneficial either mentally or 
physically, or both. If you haven't a 
hobby, get one — but don't ride it to death. 



SELF- preservation is the oldest law ; 
everyone is automatically interested 
in accident prevention because no one 
enjoys being hurt, to say nothing of 
attendant losses. 

The last half hour is the most hazardous 
of the day; this is due to the combined 
causes of speeding up and fatigue, and to 
accidents occurring while employees are 
leaving the ])lant.

The accompanying chart showing the 
hour of occurrence of serious accidents in 
our Rochester plants covering the last six 
years is therefore of decided interest. 

The chart shows that the greatest 
number of accidents occur within three 
periods; the last half hour, from ten to 
eleven in the morning, and from three to 
four in the afternoon. These findings 
agree in general with the results of other 
similar investigations. 

The middle morning and middle after- 
noon peaks are due ordinarily to two 
causes, fatigue and speed. 

In the afternoon there is naturally a 
period of drowsiness immediately follow- 
ing noon, but when this ])eriotl is over, the 
worker sj)ceds up to make up for the loss 
of work just preceding. 

In the morning the greatest sjjeed 
would naturally not be attained during 
the first hour, but be reached somewhere 



around ten o'clock; the cause here is the 
combination of fatigue and speed. 

No absohite remedy can be offered, but 
— these high peaks can be lowered. Know- 
ing the hours in which most accidents 
happen, each individual should mentally 
watch his step during these periods. 

Over-eating and too little exercise 
during the noon hour tend to drowsiness; 
the remedy here is obvious. 

Many of the accidents at the closing 
hour are caused by pushing and crowd- 
ing, and running down the stairs; here 
also the remedy is in your own hands. 



MOTHER feels that she has just 
about enough to do without having 
to look after and worry over sick folks; — 
and Father, — well, you know how he 
feels on the subject. 

The trouble is that so few folks have 
had an opportunity to acquire reliable 
knowledge as to sickness and accident 
prevention and treatment in case of 

This opportunity is now presented to 
the women of Rochester by means of a 
course of twelve lectures to be given at 
each of six Rochester schools as follows: 
School 23, Barrington St., Monday and 
Thursday forenoons, 10 :45. Opened Sep- 
tember 26th. 

School 12, Wadsworth Square, Tuesday 
and Friday afternoons, 4 p. m. Opened 
September 27th. 

School 18, North & Draper Sts., Mon- 
day and Thursday evenings, 8 p. m. 
Opened September 26th. 

School 24, 900 Meigs St., Tuesday and 
Thursday afternoons, 4 p. m. Opens 
October 26th. 

School 16, Post Ave., Tuesday and 
Thursday afternoons, 4 ]). m. Opens 
October 27th. 

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Joseph 
Ave. near Norton St., Tuesday and Fri- 
day evenings, 8 p.m. Opens October 28th. 
Your wife, mother, sister or daughter is 
most earnestly invited to join any one of 
these classes and so obtain up-to-date, 
reliable information on how to protect 
and guard the health of your home. You 
will note that these classes have already 
started in the three first-named schools, 
and we regret that we could not have 
afforded earlier notice. 

The course is given under the auspices 
of the Board of Education, the Health 
Bureau and the Chaml>er of Commerce, 
and the course has been jilanned and the 
lectures will be given by a staff com- 
posed of some of the best-known physi- 
cians in the city. 

Among the subjects included in this 
course are the causes, recognition and 
prevention of disease. Home care of the 
sick, including demonstrated lessons in 
the taking of pulse and temperature; 
following the doctor's instructions in 
giving medicine; bed making; giving of 
baths and rubs; use of sick-room ap- 
pliances; the making and application of 
various kinds of bandages; preparing of 
articles of diet for the sick; the care of the 
baby, including demonstrations in wash- 
ing, dressing and preparing food ; the care 
of children, with special reference to 
children's diseases; physiology for wom- 
en; motherhood. The lectures will also 
include the handling of emergencies, 
not only accidents, but those arising 
during the course of an illness; there will 
be demonstrations of how to put out a fire 
in clothing; the making and applying of 
temporary splints to fractures; stopping 
hemorrhages, and how to revive a 
drowning or suft'ocating person. 

These lessons are free of charge, but 
there is a registration fee of one dollar, 
which, however, will be refunded to those 
who have attended eighty per cent, of the 
lectures, the fee being charged to assure 
regularity of attendance. 

This is a splendid opportunity to secure 
this much needed practical information, 
and we urge you to have some member of 
your family attend. 



ID'^l proved another record-breaking 
year for the Rochester Exposition, 
when the attendance figures for the city's 
fall gala week reached the peak of 158,673. 
an increase of nearly 6 000 over the 19'-20 
mark. As usual, the Kodak exhibit, 
located right at the "Four Corners" in 
Building Five, attracted its meed of 


"Doc" Haskell, of the Advertising 
Department, who was again in charge of 
the display, found time from his busy 
days to play the part of the Good Sama- 
ritan on more than one occasion. One 
day two musicians from Creatore's Band 
came in to view the exhibit, and in broken 
English made known the fact that they 
wanted to })iiy a Kodak. Now, of course. 

There was nothing spectacular or bizarre 
about the Kodak display; on the other 
hand, nothing that the amateur photog- 
rapher could desire was omitted. The 
large show-case contained samples of all 
models of Kodaks and Brownies, Premos 
and Graflexes, as well as a full line of ac- 
cessories. The booth was decorated with 
enlargements of j^rize-winning ])ictures, 
most of which have aj^peared in "Kodak- 
ery" during the past year. 

Visitors to the Kodak section included 
scientific - looking gentlemen — usually 
alone — making infjuiries about some 
of the more technical ])arts of the line. 
There were also those "family" groups, 
rich with promise of future business — 
Dad and Ma. and the "kid" said "kid" 
just past the Boy Scout age, with a Kodak 
slung from his shoulder in a nnich-bat- 
tered carrying case, and asking to see a 

the rules of the Exhibition strictly pro- 
hibit any sales on the grounds. Never- 
theless, "Doc" was able to put the bands- 
men in touch with a dealer, and had the 
pleasure of seeing them, a few days later, 
strutting proudly across the Park green, 
each fixed up with a brand new Kodak 
and carrying case — and happy as a kid 
with a new toy. 

Came another ^•isitor whose difficulties 
with the English language were almost 
imfathomal)le. All "Doc" could make 
out was that he wanted to .see a "Dee-to" 
Kodak. Finally, in desperation, his caller 
reached for a catalog, and pointed to 
one of the lines which read: "Ditto, with 

Kodak Anastigmat Lens etc." 

Whereupon, "Doc" had another nice 
little job of explanation. 

Even so, "Doc" says he'd rather answer 
(|uestions like those than get stuck again 
with his truck in the (^ilifornia mud. 





4T the present writing over nine 
-ijL hundred children of Kodak em- 
ployees have received attention at the 
Rochester Dental Dispensary. If you 
have not availed yourself of this splendid 
service for your children, we urge you to 
take advantage of it at the earliest 
opportunity, as it means so much to the 
future health and happiness of the child. 

Application blanks for Dispensary ser- 
vice may be obtained from department 
heads and the nurses in the plant dispen- 
saries. When the form is filled out, it 
should be placed in the envelope jjrovided 

and sent to the Industrial Relations 
Department, 343 State Street. 

A card of introduction to the Dis- 
pensary, giving the time of appointment, 
will be sent the applicant; after receipt, 
the child, or children, should be taken to 
the Dispensary at the time stated. 

Keep your appointment and be on 
time so as not to hold up the work of the 

If, for reasons beyond your control, 
you could not keep your appointment ask 
for another one and a new appointment 
card will be sent. 


THE desire of every householder is to 
get through the mnter months with 
the greatest amount of comfort and 

Frequently you will find two families 
living in houses practically identical as to 
size and location and with the same style 
of heating apparatus. One family will 
get through the winter with, say, ten tons 
of coal, with all rooms at a comfortable 
temperature. The other family will tell 
you that they used fourteen or fifteen 
tons of coal, and that there was one 
room that just could not be heated. 

Possibly the home of the second family 
is not so well constructed or from its 
location more exposed to the wind, but 
in many cases the families could trade 
houses and the one who couldn't heat his 
house would find the same trouble with 
the other one. The thing to do before 
winter sets in is to see that your heating 
apparatus is in good order; the fire box, 
grates and flues clean, and w^orn or 
broken parts repaired or renewed. 

Make sure that any broken windows in 
your cellar, basement or attic are re- 
paired, and check up on any loose boards, 
and other open spaces that would admit 

the outside breezes. Door and window 
casings frequently shrink; weather strips 
are cheaper than anthracite. 

Your coal dealer may not pose as a 
heating expert, but in most cases he can, 
and will, afl^ord you some valuable advice 
as to the proper selection of coal and on 
how to run your furnace with satisfactory 

If you have a room that you cannot 
seem to heat, ask your coal dealer and 
you will find that he can, more often than 
not, afford the remedy. 

If you use a gas range, keep the burners 
clean, and see that they do not become 
clogged; clean burners will save on your 
gas bills, and also afford a better and 
steadier heat. 

Unprotected water pipes close to an 
outside wall are a frequent source of 
trouble in very cold weather. Look after 
them now and you won't have to call in 
the plumber, or set fire to your house in 
attempting an amateur job of thawing 

Check up on these little things now. 
They will help materially to both comfort 
and economy. 




AVERY great number of the staple 
foods and many other materials in 
daily use are packed in paper containers, 
and so waste of this sort is apt to accumu- 
late rapidly. 

Such trash forms an attraction to 
rats and mice as a fine place to build 
their nests, particularly when the paper is 
likely to be saturated with animal or 
vegetable fats. 

It is very easy for a stray match to 
find its way into rubbish of this sort and 
an inquisitive rodent will do the rest. 

Do not allow rubbish of this sort to 
accumulate, but burn it at frequent inter- 

If you burn it out of doors instead of in 
your furnace, be careful with your bonfire. 

A careless man started a trash fire about 
fifteen feet from where a neighbor was 

working on his automobile engine. Much 
gasoline had been used in cleaning the 
parts, and in a moment the fire depart- 
ment had a job. 

Fire insurance is a good thing, but fire 
prevention is better. 

Fire losses in this country represent a 
fire tax each year of about three dollars 
per head for every man, woman and child. 

The only way to get cheaper fire in- 
surance is to decrease the number of fires. 

An insurance company is merely a 
clearing house and collects money from 
the many for distribution to those who 
suffer loss by fire. 

If the destruction of jjroperty can be 
reduced, the fire premiums should be 
projjortionally reduced which would re- 
sult in a large saving to every citizen. 


THE following from the diary of Philip 
Hone of New York City written in 
1839 makes interesting reading. 

"I went this morning by invitation of ^^on- 
sieur Francis Gourand, to see a collection of the 
views naade by the wonderful process lately 
discovered in France by Monsieur Daguerre, 
which is called by his name. ^Ir. Gourand is 
the pupil and friend of the inventor, and he 
comes to this country to make known the proc- 
ess. The pictures he has are extremely beauti- 
ful — they consist of views in Paris, and exquisite 
collections of the objects of still life. The 
manner of producing them constitutes one of 
the wonders of modern times, and, like other 
miracles, one may almost be excused for 
disbelieving it without seeing the very process 
by which it is created. Every object, however 
minute, is a perfect transcript of the thing it.self ; 
the hair of the human head, the gravel on a 
roadsitU', the texture of a silk curtain, or the 
shadow of the smaller leaf reficcfcil U]ion the 
wall, are all imprinted as carefully as nature or 
art has c-reated tliem in the objects transferred; 
and those things which are invisible to the 
naked eye are rendered apparent by the help of 
a mighty magnifying glass. It ajipears to me 
not less wonderful tliat light should be made an 
active operating power in this manner, and 
that some such (>tfect should be produced by 
sound; and wlio knows whether, in this age of 
invention and discoveries, we may not l)e 
called upon to marvel at the exhibition of the 
human voice muttering over a metal plate jjre- 

]>ared in the same or some other manner 
the words 'tree,' 'horse' and 'ship.' How greatly 
asliamed of their ignorance the by-gone gener- 
ations of mankind ought to be!" 


AT the last regular meeting of the 
Board of Directors of the Kodak 
Emi)loyees Association (Incorporated) 
held on September 14th, the following 
resolution was adopted: 

'"That the Treasurer be authorized to loan to 
employees who have been laid off on account of 
slack work, up to 90'^'^ of the present market 
value of Liberty Bonds jiurchased by such 
employees luider the coni])any's plan; the 
amount loaneil to be paid to them as their 
circumstances require; such loans to be at 4% 
interest and repaid when such employees 
.secure employment, in instalhnents as agreed 
upon when the loan is made." 

This action on the part of the Kodak 
Employees Association does away with 
any necessity for the sacrifice of Liberty 
Bonds, as the loans will be so arranged as 
to make tiieir redemption easily possible. 

Ajiplications for such loans are to be 
made to the Industrial Relations Dej)art-

After weeks of anticijiation, the annual Lake 
Cruise of the K. O. R. C. took place on Saturday, 
August !27th. After last year's "Big Party," it 
seemed doubtful if we could equal tiie record, but 
we did — anfl surpassed it! 

Over 400 turned out, with a conservative sprink- 
ling of wives and sweethearts, and from the de- 
parting "toot" imtil the good ship "Ontario" 
docked again nothing interfered with a good time. 

The day was ideal — so was the evening — and the 
combined efforts of General Chairman Ross 
Robertson, and "Charlie" Howard insured a 
continuous good time. 

First, last, and in the meantime, there was 
dancing with music by a good jazz orchestra. Then 
came the sports including some events which were 
staged for the first time anywhere. But the prizes 
were worth trampling on one's dignity for. 

The winners were as follows: 



Ove Mile Elephant Race: — Waldo Potter, Harry 

McXeil, Walker Fielding. 
Peanut Relay-Teams of Tiro: — Walker Fielding and 

Waldo Potter; Dwight Paul and Leo LaPalm; 


If you want to see a hundred enthusiasts for the 
newest K. O. R, C. activity, just take a walk over 
to the vacant lot adjoining the Rochester Candy 
Works where the Kodak Office Quoit League is now 
in full swing. 

A complete schedule has been drawn up and a 
copy placed in the hands of each contestant. 

The following officers will be glad to hear from 
any interested member of the K. O. R. C: Presi- 
dent, C.E.Thurston; Treasurer, W. X. Fritz; Man- 
ager, "Bob" Wood; Secretary. Isabelle Koch. 

Raymond Sullivan and Frank King. 
Sack Race: — Walker Fielding, Waldo Potter 

Dwight Paul. 
Wheelbarrow Race: — Harold Gunderson and John 

Gunderson; C. Edward Cooiey and Dwight Paul. 
Kookoo Kanoe Race: — Frank King, Raymond Ke.sel. 


Chicken Race: — Lsabelle Koch, Irene Done. 

Pop Drinking Contest: — -Irene Jager, Isabelle Koch, 

Irene Xolan. 
Balloon Contest: — Irene Xolan, Mary Dissett, 

Isabelle Koch. 


Prize Jazz: — Rosalia Fisher and Frank King. 
Prize Fox-Trot: — Lucille Storr and Dwignt Paul; 

Mary Ashe and Eric Hoard. 

I>ast, there were miles of prize dancing, and the 
judges, at great risk of popularity, life, and limb, 
decided that for real knock-down-and-drag-out jazz, 
Fisher and King took the blue ribbons, while in the 
classic event there were two couples who "out- 
terpsied" all the rest. Tlie judges refused to decide 
the winner. 

Everybody was at home and tucked in by mid- 
night and vowing to be on board again next year.

The first picnic of the Mail Department was held 
on Thursday, Septeniher ,Sth. at Ontario Beach. 
Several members of Kodak Office kindly placed 
their cars at the disposal of the picnickers, and im- 
mediately after 5:30 were waiting to transport them 
to their destination. 

After the spread, the merry-makers betook them- 
selves to the beach, where, in the evening's enter- 
tainment provided, much talent hitherto suspected 
and unsuspected, was brought to light and recog- 
nized. Among the interesting and enlightening 
awards were: 

Kathryn Lamphere, the proud of the 
daintiest foot, a mouth organ. 

Marguerite Hanlon, having the daintiest appetite, 
a silver pencil. 

Margaret Seymour, who proved herself the best 
fireman, a handkerchief. 

Helen Hergenrother. the "fastest" member of the 
Department, a box of candy. 

Carroll Hill, as having the "most extensive femi- 
nine acquaintance," a pocket notebook. 

Recitations by Florence Breehl. ^'ocal solos by 
Alice Tiu-ner and I. L. Houley. and dancing, con- 
cluded an enjoyable evening. 


Frank Albrecht, who has been in the Shipping 
Department for the past fifteen years with the 
exception of eighteen months in the service, has left 
the employ of the company to go into business for 
himself in BufTalo. 

Frank has been prominently iclentified with 
Kodak baseball and bowling activities. He will be 
associated with Gus Seyfried who has also left the 
company. The best wishes of a host of friends 
follow them. 

VAY perdlt: 

Cecelia Perdue of the Sales Department, 14th 
floor, was married to Joseph Vay on September '■20th. 


Mary Lere of the Sales Department was marriefl 
on Thursday evening. September 8th, to Isaac Hub- 
regsen at the Brighton Reform Church. 


Horace Lloyd, of the Billing Department, and 
Marion J. Clark were married on Saturday, Sep- 
tember 10th. 


The marriage of Muriel Handy, of the Welfare 
Department, to Kenneth Brown took place on the 
evening of September 8th, at the Lake Avenue Bap- 
tist Church. Previous to her leaving the company, 
her associates in the Stock Distribution Department 
entertained Mrs. Brown at several automobile 
luncheon parties, and also presented her with a 
traveling bag. 


The Repair Department gave Lea LaBelle a 
royal send-off when she left to become the wife of 
Roy Defendorf. The employees of the department 
presented her with a complete set of silver. 


The second annual outing of the Finished Stock 
Department was held at Walter Capell's cottage, 
Oklahoma, West Webster, and proved to be a great 

Starting immediately after noon, the picnickers 
motored to the beach. 

First thing on the afternoon's program, of, 
was eats, after which came the races. The water 
was fine and most everyone took a dip in the lake. 
The balance of the afternoon was spent in dancing. 

The guests of the afternoon were Mr. and Mrs. 
W. J. German.

ment of the champion. 


The marriage of May Little of the Tabulating 
Department to Adolph Nietz, of Kodak Park, took 
place on Saturday, Sej^tember 10th. at Blessed 
Sacrament Rectory. The pre-nuptial events in- 
cluded a luncheon and linen shower at East Maple- 
wood by the bride's associates of the Tabulating 
Department, a variety shower by Cynthia Cassidy, 
and a kitchen shower by Mrs. Frank Brannigan. 

Betty Van Niel has left the Billing Department to 
take up training at the Hahnemami Hospital. Betty 
ought to make a wonderful nurse. 


Ludwig of the Mail Deptarment was 
to William J. McGahan at her home on 


Wednesday, Septemlier 6th. Ethel made a charm- 
ing bride, and her friends at Kodak Office extend 
their most cordial good wishes for her happiness. 

Pre\'ious to her leaving, the girls of the Mail 
Department entertained at Teall's and at a theatre 
party. Lorain Wilson gave a party at her home for 
Ethel and for Betty Van Niel. Variety showers 
were given by Helen Wagner and her sister, Mrs. 
Seabrook, and by Alice, Marie, and Helena Foley. 
Grace Nolan was hostess at a kitchen shower and 
Katherine Lamphere at an apron shower.

Of course you know wliat mosaic work is. 

The symmetrical cubes of stone or tile can be 
seen adorning the floors or lobbies and halls in many 
of the world's finest buildings. 

The EgA'ptians were past masters of this art, and 
excavations of ruined cities have revealed that the 
people of Pharaoh's time excelled in mosaic work. 

All of which goes to prove that the ancients had 
the right idea of "fitting in." 

One cube or slab of tile can no more make a 
mosaic design than one mind can formulate the 
policies of industry. 

It reciuires dozens of squares, oblongs, circles and 
\arious shapes to perfect an elaborate mosaic 
l)attern. It requires dozens of executive, statistical, 
mechanical, aufl clerical minds to perfect an efficient 
factory organization. 

Each cube of tile or stone, of itself, is practically 

useless, but in co-operation with others, it becomes 
a very important part of the design and is indis- 
pensable to the whole. 

Each executive and employee, however special- 
ized he or she may be, does not, separately, constitute 
an efficient organization; but, collectively, each unit 
becomes vital to the other, and together they form 
a prosperous combination. 

Just as each tile or stone unit must contribute 
.shape and color to the mosaic structure, so must 
each executive and employee contribute ideas and 
suggestions to the company's policies. 

Each man or woman jniisf "fit in" to the general 
scheme, not only by contributing labor, but by 
using brains. 

While you work, think! 

The management exchanges your ideas for cash. 

Become a co-operative part of your industry 
through the suggestion system! 

Delia Meerdink and Ralph Welch have both

tennis team. Anyway — we know who are the star 
players, and will remember it next season. Delia

The handsome trophy, donated by the Recreation 
Club for competitive gardening clubs exhibiting at 
the Rochester Exposition, is still awaiting a claim- 
ant! When the trophy was "put up," there were six 
likely competitors for honors, but one after another 
of the clubs dropped out, until only ojir association 
was left in the field. As a result, the usual feature of 
an industrial garden exhibit at Exposition was 
dropped, and, according to "Hoyle" we are entitled 
to keep the prize. But there, we'll give the other 
factories a chance to win it next year — and the 
more competitors the merrier.

The Camera Works Recreation Club may be a

bloodshed as the Kodak. Athletic Club members

The photograph represents a group of Camera 
Works' employees, who in 1898, were eager to spill 
their blood in the Spanish-American war, and, in 
order to get in trim, formed an athletic club. Harry 
Briggs, to whom we are indebted for this "relic," 
tells us that the way the boys slugged at each other 
portended instant defeat to the Spaniards, but fate 
spared them, for so much "claret" was spilled at 
these meetings, that it took the boys two weeks to 
regain strength before staging another bout. Boxing 
seemed to be the chief amusement, although there 
were other items f)n their semi-monthly programme, 
including wrestling, singing, clog dancing, and last, 
but by no means least, "hot dogs and suds."

To the Editor of the Camera Works Section, 

Kodak Magazine, , 

Dear Sir: 

I would like to take a small space in your magazine 
to insert the following article. 

I have been with the Eastman Kochik Co., 
Camera Works division, for nineteen years, but am 
obliged to give up my work for the time l)eing on 
account of ill-health. This action I very much 
regret for I have made a great many friends, and I 
miss them greatly. 

I was advised by the Doctor that the quickest way 

Xo. 4. Could be entitled "Gazing into the future' 
the model being Frank O'Brien. 

Xo. 5. Shows us a splendid example of a mustache, 
with Archie Love as the grower and culti- 
vator. Archie was physical instructor for the 

Xo. 6. Is Phillip Mattle, who was considered a 
deadly enemy with the . gloves. 

Xo. 7. Should be easy to recognize. Edward 
Freislich doesn't look a day older now, 
does he.^ 

X'^o. 8. Crowned with a derby — is Albert Eidman. 
Albert has grown considerably since this 
picture was taken, not so much "longways" 
but "forward"! 

Xow, you "old timers." don't "josh" the subjects 
of this photograj)h too much, for the Editor has 
quite a collection of ancient pictures and manu- 
scripts, and you never can tell whose turn is next. 

for me to recover my health was to take a complete 
rest, and live in the fresh air. For this advice — 
together with ^^edical treatments, I am deeply 
indel)ted to Dr. Sawyer. Had I had the forethought 
to go to Dr. Sawyer previously, I know I would be 
in better shajie today, and this letter is intended to 
convey my appreciation of him, and also my super- 
intendent, Mr. (ieiger, and Mr. Robertson and 
Mr. Brehm. 

To these men, and to my many friends, I wish to 
pay my highest regards. Sincerely yours, 

John W. Preston. 





The caption of this article was the opinion of the 
many visitors who viewed the sixth annual exhibit 
of the Camera Works Gardening Association and — 
"so say we all of us." 

This year we confiscated part of the dining room 
in lieu of an empty store on State Street. It was a 
great idea at that. The display showed up clearly 
against the white marble table tops. If you are 
one of those people who look upon vegetables simply 
as commodities to be boiled or fried, but not to be 
admired, you missed seeing the exhibit . The 
various shades of the many varieties of "eartli friut " 
formed a wonderful picture, and color photography 
would have been tested to its utmost to register the 
Collective Display

The feature of the show was, undoubtedly, the 
collective display of Fred W. Brehm. Even the 
judge — Mr. F. A'. Metcalfe of Irondequoit — had to 
look only once to award the Ijlue ribbon. There 
were fifty or sixty distinct varities of everythmg 
from half inch peppers to twenty-three inch celery. 
As for tomatoes, Mr. Brehm has alreafly established 
a reputation of growing all known and vmknown 
species, and this year he again maintained his usual

While the entries were not as 
many as in previous years, the 
quality of the vegetables was tip- 
top. There is one sure thing about 
the results of the six years 'garden- 
ing activity — it has taught the 
members how to produce quality 





On]^the last day of August, tliirty-five'^Hawk-Eye 
men held what they claimed was to be their final 
sausage roast of the season on the upper River. 
Frankly, we don't believe it was the last. These 
roasts have become a sort of amiable weakness with 
that particular crowd, and we expect to hear of them 
"spreading 'em with mustard" imtil snow flies. 

It was not a canoe party this time. The hea\y- 
weights refused to go unless they could drive tlieir 
Peerlesses and Reos to the .scene of the "dog-fight." 
However, everyone found plenty of exercise, im- 
mediately upon arriving, in the customary ball 
game. That is, everyone except "Red" Sondheim, 
"Larry" Tarnow and Frank Quetchenback, who 
were up to their ears in the culinary preliminaries, 
that must needs precede the main bout. 

"Ed" McLean imij)ired the game and, owing to 
his size, escaped uninjured. His hair-raising decis- 
ions and " Benny " Levine's efforts as chief comedian 
made anything but a high old time unthinkable. 
Outside of these two luminaries, the out-fielders on 
both teams- were most prominent, not because they 
caught so many flies, (they really didn't stop a 
thing) but because of their generous numbers. Each 
side had a good half-dozen of them. \i\ general, 
the game alone was more than worth the insignifi- 
cant cost of the party. Though most of the ac- 

countants were present, they couldn't make up their 
minds as to the score, and the question has yet to 
be settled. 

The commissary department almost had to drag 
the reluctant players to the dining green, where 
tables had (not) been set. Once there, however, 
they" stayed put" with a vengeance, and great were 
the deeds they did in the course of the "fight." 
Fred Altman, 'tis true, lost caste with the champion 
eaters when he chose to act as waitress and consum- 
ed only two man-sized portions. But "Bill" 
Roach made amends by purchasing the absent 
"Jimmy" "Weldon's share at a ridiculously low 
figure, and then eating about ten portions. As for 
the quality of the lunch, high fame has attached 
itself to the eats of "Larry" and "Red." 

There followed those evening pursuits that 
usually grace such parties. There is a snap-shot 
extant that shows a group gathered around either a 
campfire or an illuminated blanket, ostensibly tell- 
ing ghost stories. More than one saw ghosts before 
the evening was over. "Joe" Engel, on his own 
evidence, was voted the best deer-hunter in the 

Nobody who participated that night would object 
if those parties did last until Thanksgi\Tng. And 
if they can be moved indoors after that, — let's do it.

"Billy" Wilson is busy these days sclieming a 
rejuvenation of the Ekco Club, which passed through 
such a successful season at the Y. W. C. A. last year. 
The organization started with a membership of 
about ten and, contrary to the experience of many 
chibs, ended the season with twice that number. It 
is planned to do even bigger things this year and 
there is reason to believe that the new features, 
offered by the "Y. W." through the club will make 
the latter a record-breaking success. 

As last year, supper will he served on clul) nights, 
but on a more pretentious scale. The meal will be 
followed by joint fireside meetings of all the girls' 
clubs, a feature that has always been immensely 
popular and successful. After this general get- 
together, there will be two forty-minute periods, 
which will be utilized for either eflucational or 
recreational purposes. C'ourses are offered in Cur- 
rent Events, Economics, Psychology, United States 
History, First-Aid, Millinery, etc., as well as the 
usual gym work and swimming. The girls also 
have the option of spending these periods in the 
reading room, in the music room or at any other 
pursuit that may strike their fancy. They can 
leave early or stay late, according to necessity or 
inclination. There will be something to suit, and 
to attract every girl along these lines, not to mention 
the good-fellowship which after all has been the 
foundation and secret of success of the Ekco Club. 

Marguerite Fehrenbach left our Production 
Department on September 9th, to begin a training 
course at St. Clary's Hospital. We hope, and 
believe, that she will be happy and successful in her 
new work. 


The girls of the Pitch Button Department held a 
lively Pajama Party. Attired in bright-hued pa- 
jamas, they gathered for supper at seven o'clock in 
the women's dining room. The girls say that they 
could easily have imagined themselves dining at 
Odenljach's when tliey tasted the delicious salads, 
pastry and excellent coffee made by Miss Drum- 
mond. It is assumed that they would have been 
somewhat eml)arrassed if they had found them- 
selves suddenly transported to that hostelry attired 
as they were, but it isn't necessary to pursue the 
comparison cjuite to that point. 

After the repast, a novel program of games and 
dancing was carried out. There is no doubt but that 
the pajama girls enjoyed themselves — in fact, John 
DeWitte .says that they apparently wandered from 
the original scene of their merry-making, for he 
found fairy footjirints even on the tables within the 
sacred confines of the men's dining room. 

With the approach of cool weather, the Pitch 
Buttoners are jilanning to have more of their get- 


We hasten to deny the rumor that Alice Gears and 
"Babe" Meerdink have taken up the game of 
cricket. Some people seem to have jiunped at 
conclusions, just because the girls played in a 
baseball game which their team won bv a score of 


Florence Greinke left on September 10th. Most 
of us did not know initil afterward that she was to 
be married. Mr. Arthur Koss is the lucky man, 
and the date of the wedding was September Slst. 
The best wishes of the Filter Department, where 
Florence worked, and of Hawk-Eye in general, go 
with Mr. and Mrs. Koss. 


August marked the appearance of a new team on 
the outdoor-indof)r fliamond. The Tool Room nine 
made its debut on the last of the month, and while 
it tasted defeat at the hands of the Foremen, the 
line-up looked good. Tiie d-i .score doesn't show 
the calibre of "Charlie" Becker's pitching, because 
his support wasn't altogether watertight. Fred 
Von Deben, covering second base for the winners, 
kept the noon-hour fans in suspense by h s involun- 
tary antics. He had a bad day with his feet, and his 
playing looked like a demonstration of "One 
Hundred Ways to Stumble Without Falling." 

A week earlier, the married naen had stacked up 
against the bachelors. Just as at the picnic earlier 
in the month, the single men demonstrated their 
superiority by winning in a canter. 

Our friends, the Oleanders, made several in- 
vasions of our grounds, administering a beating on 
each occasion. Hawk-Eye has yet to find a combi- 
nation that can cope with the Oleander battery and 
at the same time throttle their swat-smiths. How- 
ever, these games, as well as all the others, have 
supplied more fun than the justly famous barrel of 
monkeys, and it will be with keen regret that 
Hawk-Eye will see the end of this noon-hour sport. 




At present Hawk-Eye's chief concern is to find a 
suitable spot in which to display a large blue-and- 
white banner, suc-h as is jjrcsented to a champion- 
ship team. For the second sviccessive season our 
liardhitting lens-makers, strengthened this time by 
the sj)lendid talent from Folmer-C'eiitury, have 
taken home the "muslin"' in the Kodak League. 
Not only that, hut at tlie present writing they are 
out to win the industrial championship of the city 

Both of Hawk-Eye's closing League games were 
scheduled with the Main Office. The first of them, 
on August '-27th, was Hawk-Eye's by default, 
"Toddy" Diehl's team failing to put in an appear- 
ance. It was then necessary to go through with a 
postponed game a week later, because a defeat 
would have meant a tie and a post-season .series 
with Camera Works, holders of second place. 

"Romped" is the word, gentlemen. It wouldn't 
adequately express things to say that Hawk-Eye 
1(071 the last game. It would have been a scream, 
even if Harry Moore hadn't fanned purposely, and 
"Benny" Levine hadn't got himself caught between 
first and second in a humane eti'ort to end the fracas. 
And then tliere was that hot line of repartee between 
"Bill" Schlegel and Fogarty of State Street, and 
the squabble over the ball clubs at the end. Those 
of us who turned out for the game were given a 
rare treat, not particularly of baseball, but of 

Eggert opened in the box for the Office, op- 
posed by Graham. Both were very steady for the 
first few innings, and it looked as if the score of 
i-l .^irrived at in early rounds, would stand. 
But "Alose" Eggert Meakened, and Hawk-Eye 
was not long in finding it out. By the fifth, our 
team had iced the game .5-1, and was going strong. 
At this stage, "Toddy" Diehl essayed to stem the 
tide. His regime lasted two innings, during each of 
which Hawk-Eye added five runs. The boys 
leaned on everything offered them, and begged for 
more. Petroske fattened his average with five 
hits, and Prentice annexed three. Our own 
defense eased up a bit, allowing two Office runs to 
register, but in general, (iraliam's support was 
good, especially a snapjjy double play, Wiedemann 
to Ingleby to Moore. 

At the end of the seventh, Diehl was as tired of his 
job as P^ggert had been, whereupon the great 
"Hash" McNeil was trotted over from first. He 
held Hawk-Eye off during the eighth, aufl final, in- 
ning, but — it didn't mean an>thing. Hawk-Eye 
had won the game 1.5-;5, and the Eastman Kodak 
pennant by a one-game margin. 

Immediately after the last Kodak I^eague con- 
test, a three-game series was arranged between our 
victorious Hawks and the Tyc-os, or Taylor in- 
strument nine, who liad wf)n the flag in the I. .V. 
R. A. League. 

The first game on September 10th, started like so 
many chamj)ionship series start — it was a comedy 
of errors. Fortunately, most of the comedy was 
on the side of the o])[)osition. The hitting was 
heavy throughout, j)arti(iilarly on Hawk-Fye's 
part. Captain (ieorge ANiedemann gathered four 
hits in five trips to the ])late, while (iraf, Moore and 
Petroske each garnered three. In all, Hawk-Eye 
touched up Magin, the Tycos luirler, for seventeen 

safe clouts, and eight Tycos errors contributed to 
help the boys around the paths. As a result, 
"Wiedie's" men scored fourteen times, while nine 
runners were left on l)ase. 

The game, which had looked like a nip-and-tuck 
affair for a few innings, dragged toward the finish, 
and ended 14-7. II(nvever, a victory meant an 
edge on our opponents in the city race; .so, a sound, 
even though uninteresting, beating of Taylor's nine 
was gratifying. 

The second game of the series, played at Taylor 
Field, was a different affair. "Jakie" Young took 
Magin's place on the mound for the instrument 
makers, and pitched a splendid game. McCor- 
mack, our iron man. was just as good; in fact he 
allowed only five hits, while his team-mates were 
gathering six, fjut the breaks were against Hawk- 

The first four innings were a pitchers' battle, with 
only one safe clout by each team. In the fifth 
McCormack passed Buelte and hit Meyers. The 
next man smashed out a hot one between first and 
second, scoring both of his team-mates. Hawk- 
Eye came back in the next session and evened the 
coimt on an error, a i)ass and two singles. There- 
upon all the loyal Hawk-Eyetes sat back in relief, 
and reminded the Tycos that they would have to 
start all over again. They did — in the .seventh. 
Blum and Wollenhaupt hit cleanly, and then Bovena 
lifted one over the left field fence for a homer, 
making the score five to two. The fight wasn't 
over, though. In the ninth Wiedemann's men 
filled the sacks after two were out. A hit at this 
point would have changed matters completely.

by an inch, at first, ending the game, and postpon- 
ing the issue of the cliampionship series.

"No doubt you will be surprised to hear from an 
old pal like me" is the heading of an interesting 
letter received from one of our former employees. 
"Babe" Cahill. ]\Iiss Cahill says she has left the 
stage and is now district sales manager for the 
Child's Welfare Magazine, with headquarters at 
Detroit, Michigan. "Babe" is making quite a 
success in her new work, and wants to be remem- 
bered to all her friends with the Kodak Company. 
One of her wishes is that she will be able to drop 
in and entertain us at one of our Premo Club 
vaudeville shows. Glad to see you, "Babe"!

After numerous postponements and delays the 
Annual K. P. A. A. Tennis Tournament finished 
up with a grand rush, great interest being sliown in 
the final play-off. One after another of the con- 
testants was eliminated up to the finals, where 
Charles Flagg of the Pay Roll and "Joe" Minella 
of the Steel Fabricating Department met to decide 
which was the better man. This match was of 
particular interest, in view of the fact that both 
Flagg and Minella were rated as Class "D" players. 
After coming through from the beginning, meeting 
and defeating by virtue of their handicaps and good 
playing other players of higher classification, the 
end was most fitting. Flagg demonstrated early 
in the match that he was Minella's superior taking 
the first set 6-'-2. A spurt by "Joe" gave him the 
second set 6—1, after which the Pay Roll Star 
settled dowii to consistent playing, taking the next 
two, C-4, 6-4. Both players are to be congratu- 
lated on their success, and commended for their 
persistence and courage throughout the tourna-

The wind-u]). howe\-er. should be more spirited. 




Thursday night will be K. P. A. A. night at the 
Genesee Bowling Hall all this winter. President 
James A. Hart, of the Kodak League, announces 
that plans are all completed and that everything is 
in shape for the ojjening night, October 6th. The 
League will again include eight teams as follows. 
Building 50, Foremen's Club, Building .'30, Film. 
E. C. & P., \'elox. Carpenter Shop, and Machine 
Shop. Schedules are being printed, and will be 
available upon request at the office of the Associa- 
tion. Get one and drop in occasionally when your 
team is in action. Give them a little encourage- 
ment and help them win some of the prizes. 


Sixteen entries were received for the Kodak Park 
Athletic Association Golf Tournament which 
opened the first week in September. Handi- 
caps, based on the scores turned in each month by 
those desiring to participate in the tournament, 
were allowed the players, resulting in an even chance 
for all. One roiuid was played off each week . 
Finals were to be completed before October 1st. 
This would allow time for the winners of the Kodak 
Park tournament to meet the best men from Kodak 
Office where a similar tournament was being run. 





Last season was a "humdinger" for the Kodak 
Park girls' basketball team and everyone admits 
that we will have to go some to better it this winter. 
In all, eighteen games were played during the season, 
sixteen being won. The only team to defeat the 
Park lassies was the famous Clark-Munies, of 
Cleveland, world's championship girls' team. 

Practically all of last season's players are again 
availal)le and anxious to get into action. The ex- 
perience gained by them last year should put them 
in the lead from the very start, and their slogan 
will be "not a defeat this winter." 

Efforts are again being made to secure the services 
of "Charlie" Thompson as coach. His superior 
knowledge of the game, together with his ability to 
guide succes-sfully the playing of the team members, 
makes him highly desirable. It is hoped to get five 
or six weeks steady practice before the opening 
game, which will be played the latter part of next 
month against one of the best teams in this 

Everyone enjoys the girls' games. Start early 
this season. Get the habit with tlie first game and 
be there for everv one.

and her Mother spent the last two weeks of August

Bessie DraflBn of the Plate Department wishes to 
thank her friends at Kodak Park for the many 
kindnesses shown her during her recent illness. 


By the time this Ma'jazine is issued, the Kodak 
Park Foremen's Club will have had one more of 
its very extraordinary affairs, this a Clam Bake, 
at Rifle Range on Saturday, September 24th. 

For the past four years this event has been elimi- 
nated from the program of activities, but, because 
of the persistent demand on the part of a large 
representation of tlie membership body, it was 
decided to hold one this year. 

Charles Schlansker, James A. Hart, William 
Doane, Robert A. Weber and Charles Kendall were 
in charge of the different arrangements. 

The first dinner and meeting of the winter season 
will l)e held in the middle of this month. Every- 
one is anxious for these to be resumed, and between 
four and five hundred people are expected to be in 
attendance at the first one. President Schaefl'er 
and a Committee are busy arranging a schedule of 
winter activities and promise to exceed, if possible, 
in everv wav the affairs of last year. 


"Jack Brightman of Building -26 was married on 
Monday, September oth to Anna DeRoche of the

their heartv congratulations and best wishes.

The Research Picnic, held at Grand \ iew Beach 
oa Augjst :27th went with a bang. 

Floyd Bight er who was chairman of the SporLs 
Committee, and a live wire at all times, started the 
ball rolling with a game of playgroimd ball between 
the SjTithetic Chemistry and the Research Labora- 
tory. The boys took it seriously: so. the only in- 
teresting part was ■■.\1"' Knight as umpire. ".M" 
got rid of some old grudges by shutting his 
eyes when good ones came over and calling 'em balls. 

The game that evoked the real enthusiasm was 
between two teams captained by H. LeB. Gray and 
Harry Tozier. Dr. Mees proved his speed by 
making two hits and although Billings played 
"Babe Ruth" and scored a home run. he spoiled it 
all by getting "bawled up" on base throwing. H. 
LeB. Gray looked around to protest a decision 
from the \"aliant umpire, and discovered only an 
animated cigar. This prevented him from seeing 
the demonstration staged by Dr. Clark who proved 
that there is more than one way to catch a ball. 

The ball-throwing contest was won by \Ii5s 
Bergh. while Mrs. MerwT.-n Orser threw into high 
and won the 50 yard dash for ladies. Domestic 
training proved its efficiency when Mr. and Mrs. 
Reeves won the Pipe and Needle Contest. Emery 
Huse showed his proficiency in igniting the briar 
by winning the Pipe Race. 

Newton Green and J. H. Haste chose up for a 
tug-of-war and Mr. Haste lost the pull through a 
technical error. It seems that Dr. Trivelli was 
giving his full support to !Mr. Haste's side of the 
rope, but this support proved to be only moral. 

In the girls' baU game, Irene M. Foley became 
wedded to her bat. Mabel Osier, taught Mr. 
Spaulding a new rule when she scored from 
third while placing third. Figure it out. 

The "Suns" of Mr. Lovejoy and Dr. Mees 
respectively, tied in the hurdle race, although each 
has a manly grudge against Floyd Righter for 
removing the benches. 

The dinner served at the Grand \'iew Hotel was 
voted the best ever. "Bob " Bret hens youthful 
Tommy pleased the diners by "spilling the beans" 
and although Louise Hutchison had to sing through 
two waiters she proved herself a true vocalist and 
was well appreciated. Nothing need be said of the 
Series Four Quartet: it is reported that they said 
enough and that it actually was harmonious. 

.\nber Benedict led the toddlers towards the pavil- 
ion at 8:30, where dancing topped off one of the 
most successful picnics yet held by Kodak Parks 
scientists and their friends. 





As the season ends, once again the Kodak Park 
baseliall team disbands and the equipment is laid 
away among the moth balls until another spring 
rolls around. Hawk-Eye is again the pennant- 
winner, and, with the Ijest all-aroimd team in the 
League, the final result was ob\-ious. 

Kodak Park's well-known "Jinx" was on the job 
almost every game, and, for one reason or another, 
the defeats piled up until our prospects were hope- 
less. Only two games were won out of the eleven 
played, one from Camera Works and the other from 

Hawk-Eye. The spirit of the players imder the 
conditions was very good, and too much can not be 
said in apprec-iation of their efforts. The support 
of the fans, however, was far from what shoidd be 
expected, and this, it is felt, had considerable to do 
with the outcome. Another year we have hopes 
of different results. With Kodak Park ha\-ing the 
largest field to pick from, and greater possibilities 
in every way, it should hold the top of the League. 
To the boys who played, and gave their time and 
effort, and to those fans who did support the team, 
we extend a vote of appreciation. 


Owing to the resignation of the Rochester and 
District League secretary, it has been necessary to 
postpone the opening of the fall series, to enable 
the schedule committee to re^■ise the arrangement 
of matches. Indications point to the first game 
being played about Octol^er 1st. Kodak Park is 
but one point behind the Celtics, and oiu- chances of 
gaining first place are very good, in spite of the fact 
that Morrison. Scott, Clegg and Griffiths, four of 
our most able players, are no longer with the team. 

Plaj^ing in the Northwestern Cup Competition 
matches was resumed last month, the Celtics play- 
ing the Oneida Community team at Sherrill. Xew 
York, and the Moose meeting the Jamestown 
Football Club at Jamestown. Kodak Park was 
eliminated in the last game of the local series in the 
spring, by the Celtics; so, we must wait another 
year for a chance at the big trophy. 

Students and graduates of the Kodak Park Train- 
ing School for girls, numbering about one hundred 
and thirty persons, enjoyed a very pleasing banquet , 
entertainment, and dance on Friday. Septemlser ■2nd. 
Dinner was served in the Dining Hall of Building ■Jy 
at 6:30 o'clock. During the coiu-se of the meal, 
music was fiu"nished by an able orchestra and 
commimity singing was enjoyed. William Hilde- 
brand. well-known whistler, also entertained. Fol- 
lowing the dinner, short talks were given by several 
of the in\-ited guests, including W. L. Farley. V. M. 
Palmer, George Fallesen and Mrs. Thompson. 
Then the party adjourned to the Assembly Hall 
where a program of vaude\'ille was presented by 
the girls of the school. The remainder of the even- 
ing was devrted to dancing. 


The day set for the Annual Outing foimd Yatess 
shift of the Roll Coating Department all "dolled 
up " and on their way to Rifle Range where 
"sports" predominated and business cares were 
forgotten. The arrangement committee, consisting 
of John Kamm. Martin Bieck, and " Pat " Donnelly, 
started the fun early, and the boys kept it up late. 
The main event of the afternoon was a decidedly 
snappy ball game between the boys of Buildings 
•20 and ^1 in which long hits, fast base rimning. and 
shoe-string catches were plentiful. Building iO 
won over the rivals. Other events were as follows: 
Running race, won by Henry Perkins. Fat man's 
race, won by George Reithel. Tug-of-war Ijetween 
Buildins* ^0 and -21. won In- Bnildine ^'i. The 

prize for the most handsome man was given to 
Levi Peachey, age seventy-one years. The most 
homely man was hard to decide. "Jack" Seabury 
wiiming over "Mike " La Force by a very narrow 
margin. The pie-eating contest was easily won by 
Frank Hedges the official photographer. Floyd 
Allxirn. Henry Perkins. Elmer Hewitt and "Dick" 
Johnson won the relay race, and the prize 
for the cracker eating contest went to Henry Pillen. 
Elmer Olmsted. Floyd Vine and "Jack " Buckler 
shone as table finishers, eating practically every- 
thing in sight. 

.After a sumptuous dinner, the cigars donated by 
Martin Bieck were enjoyed and a group pictiu^ 
wa* taken. 




After several years of hoping and waiting, the lucky, and the team is at present known as the 

Pipe Shoj) has at last come int<j what it lias "Deuces." With practically the same players and 

always considered its rightful place in the sun — Harvey Shannon still at the hehn, they have to

the position always. Never a noon passes that the

erstwhile boss, fails to occupy a conspicuous posi- 
tion in the grandstand. 

What's in a name.^ Apparently a great deal, 
for in'this series the old name of "Pipe Shop" has 
been dropped for a name more appropriate or more 


Twenty-eight years ago last month, Charles L. 
Coon was employed by the Kodak C ompany to 
work in the Toning Department at State Street. 


During the war the scarcity of pyro made it 
advisable for the company to manufacture its own, 
and Mr. Coon was appointed to take charge of this 
work in which he has been very successful.

congenial association for many years, and congrat-

of Building -26. left the employ of the company on

Wednesday, October l'-2th, to Albert W. Meyn of 
Department .50. 

Marion has Ijeen emijloyed at Kodak Park for the 
past six years as telephone operator, during which 
time she has added greatly to her popularity, and 
no activity is complete without her presence. An 
ardent supporter of the K. P. A. A., active in all 
the girls' activities during her term of emplo^Tnent, 
she has done much towards its development, and 
will be greatlv missed.

by the United States Air Service to try out our new 
aerial camera last year. 

As a result of the tests made by Captain Stevens 
we have many aerial views of Rochester, including 
the mosaic map of this city. This wonderful 
example of " Photography From the Air" consists of 
a series of eighty-two photographs taken at an altitude 
of ten thousand feet. A reproduction of this map

BY taking one game from Kodak Park 
and two from Kodak Office, "Doc" 
Craib's Hawk-Eye champions forged to 
the front of the Eastman Kodak League 
in the final dash and finished ahead of 
Camera Works by a one-game margin. 
The Hawks played consistent ball through 
out the year, losing but three of the twelve 
games. These three defeats came, two at 
the hands of Camera Works, and one 
from Kodak Park. The Hawk-Eye nine 
won six straight games to finisli uj) the 
season in the lead. 

But one contest remained iniplayed at 
the close of the season; this one post- 
poned game between Kodak Office and 
Kodak Park was not played off inas- 
much as it could have no bearing on the 
final outcome. 

The f nal double-header of the year was 
staged on August "21st, when Hawk-Eye 
won a game from Kodak Park by a 

9 to 5 tally. In the other half of the pro- 
gram. Camera Works won with ease from 
the Office team, the final count being 10 
and 2. One w^eek later, on Saturday, 
August ^Sth, Camera AYorks nosed out 
Kodak Park, 13 to 11. This game was 
featured by the liitting of Manager Lee 
Voder, wlio connected for a double, 
triple, and homer in four times up 
Hawk-Eye pocketed the other section of 
the double bill on a forfeit, w^hen the 
Office failed to put nine players on the 

The fray that cinched the flag for 
Hawk-Eye was a postponed game with 
Kodak Office, played off on Saturday, 
September 4th. Hawk-Eye won this 
battle with ease, the final score reading 
15 and 3. "Pat"* Petroske proved the 
star of the matinee with five hits in six 
times up, including three two-baggers. 


4S this issue goes to press, the City

cariou.sly on top of the fence with "Doc" 
Craib's "Hawks" and the Tycos reach- 
ing eager hands toward the coveted 

The fall classic got under w'ay at Kodak 
Park on Saturday, September 11th. The 
"Hawks" evidently believed in getting 
off on the right foot, for they rolled up a 
14-7 score to win this opening battle. 
Seventeen solid bingles grouped with 
eight Tycos errors made the going easy 
for our boys. 

One week later, however, Craib and 

his crew bearded the enemy in his den, 
and at Taylor Field they found it a 
different story. "Jakie" Y'oung and 
our owTi "Lefty" McCormack staged a 
pitching duel. "Lefty" had the edge 
holding the Tycos lads to five swats 
while his mates were getting six, but 
one Mr. Bovena delivered the punch at 
the psychological moment, crashing out 
a "Babe" Ruth clout with the score 
tied and two runners on the bags. Re- 
sult: Tycos 5, Hawk-Eye 2. 

In the wind-up game Saturday, Sept- 
ember '24th, Hawk-Eye clenched the title 
with a 10—3 victorv.

EQUINOCTIAL storms have come 
and gone, and now the season for 
outdoor sport is fast waning. October 
1st saw the final attraction of the base- 
ball year in the battle between George 
Stallings' Rochester clan, and a picked 
team from the Kodak League. 

The winter program is as yet more or 
less problematical. Down Kodak Park 
way there seems to be some doubt as to 
whether or not they will again have the 
Kodak Park "Big Five" on the basket- 
ball court this season. High class basket- 
ball teams are an expensive luxury, and in 
these times of economy it may be decided 
to omit this feature of the winter recrea- 
tion program. In that case, rumor has 
it that the Park, Camera AYorks, Kodak 
Office and Hawk-Eye might combine in 
an Eastman Kodak Basket])all League, 
with games played at Kodak Park once 
each week. Such a project could be 
engineered economically and woidd ])ro- 
vide considerable amusement for the 
Kodak fans. 

The grand old standby of the Kodak 
sporting world — the Camera Bowling 
League — now twenty-one years young, is 
also facing difficulties. This again is an 
expensive proposition which some of the 
Recreation Clubs are viewing with con- 
siderable alarm. However, as Secretary 
"Jack" Stanton at Premo says: "We'll 
have a team there if we have to bring 
down some of the girls," and if that's 
the spirit at Premo, the others can surely 
be counted on to jump into the ring and 
make those Park rollers hustle for the 

Such "feeder" circuits as the Camera 
Works, Kodak Office and Folmer-Cen- 
tury leagues have been developing some 
classy yoiuig talent in recent winters, 
and some of these years, the Ridge crew 
may come a cropper. So, some Saturday 
afternoon late in October, we expect to 
see the Camera rollers swing under the 
wire again at Genesee Hall.

What You Can Do with a Brownie 

7h{ pUturti really tell, better than words, just what anybody can do 
vnth a Brownie. It is a very simple little camera, yet it is fully 
iqnippcd for snap-shots out-of-doors, for time exposures indoors or 
out, tor flashlights and home portraiture. It can. with the aid of a 
seventy-five cent Kodak Portrait Attachment make delightful "close- 
ups." as the picture of Mary Louise in the upper left-hand corner 
.imply proves. And it's at) very easy. 

There are Brounies in several sixtj , but this is about the 2* Brownie 
in particular. It makes pictures 2'ixM'* inches, hasa meniscus achro- 
matic lens, a rotary self-setting shutter, has three stops (diaphragms) 
and two finders-one for vertical and one for horizontal exposures. It 
requires no focusing and loads in dayli^l with Kodak Film Cartridges 
of six or twelve exposures. It is covered with a fine imiiarion grain 
leather with metal parts finished in 
nickel and black enamel.

JUST supposing that some morning 
when you arrived for work, you were 
informed that you had been appointed 
advertising manager. 

Settling yourself at the new desk, you 
would mentally exclaim: "This job looks 
pretty soft to me — all I have to do 
is to get together a few good-looking 
'ads' and send them on to some of the 
magazines and newspapers to be printed," 
and then you reach for a scratch i)ad and 

In less than sixty minutes, it would 
begin to dawn upon you that you had 
drawn a man's size job, and you would 
discover that to be a successful advertis- 
ing man requires much more than the 
ability to produce convincing advertise- 
ments, and that, in itself, is no small 

It is not the purpose of this brief 
tale to tell you of the many qualifications 
and duties of our advertising staff, but 
just to make you acquainted with a few 
of this .season's advertisements and the 
way in which different appeals are 
presented (see page 2). 

In examining these advertisements, 

bear in mind that they are shown in 
much smaller size than in the magazines 
when they are being run, and so lose 
much of their effectiveness. Advertise- 
ment Xo. 1 illustrates what can be done 
with the little, yet mightily competent, 
^'est Pocket AutogTaphic Kodak Special, 
with special reference to the Kodak 
Anastigmat lens equipment. Advertise- 
ment Xo. 2 is being nm in a number 
of farm papers and tells the farm folks 
of both the practical and ])ersonal uses 
of the Kodak. Advertisement Xo. 3 
shows what can be done with the simple 
and inexpensive 2 A Brownie. Adver- 
tisement Xo. 4 creates the demand for 
better lens equipment and new cameras 
by featuring the superior advantages 
of the Kodak Anastigmat Lens. 

The advertisements shown herewith 
have been selected only to give you 
some idea of the variety of approaches 
which are being made. In addition, 
motion picture and X-ray film, Eastman 
chemicals, and various photographic 
apj^aratus are being advertised every 
month in journals going directly to the 
fields where such products are employed. 


UXDER certain conditions, for which 
provision is made in the Stock 
Distribution Plan, the shares of stock 
allotted to an employee may be issued 
in the form of negotiable certificates 
prior to the date on which the Managers 
Certificates would ordinarily mature. 
It appears that there are occasional 
instances where the holders of certificates 
issued in this way are unable to secure 
authoritative information as to the actual 
market value of the stock. 

In order to safegiu^rd employees as 
far as possible, and to pre\ent any 

advantage being taken of holders of these 
certificates, the Industrial Relations De- 
partment has undertaken to have immed- 
iately available, full information regard- 
ing the matter, wliich will be furnished 
on request. 

In case you know of any employees or 
former employees of the company, 
holding negotial)le certificates issued un- 
der the Stock Distribution Plan, who 
may information or advice con- 
cerning their stock allotment, it is hoped 
that you will refer them to the Industrial 
Relations Department. 




KODzA.K Park is a young city in itself; 
so it is only reasonable to suppose 
that it, being strictly up to the minute in 
every other respect, would have its own 
means for fighting and subduing any 
ordinary fire. 

Kodak Park embraces two hundred 
and thirty acres of ground and 
has one hundred and fourteen factory 
buildings, with a floor space of over 
eighty acres, and housing upwards of 
six thousand, five hundred employees, 
men and women. 

Seven other buildings, now planned 
and some under way, will add another 
twelve acres of floor space, and bring 
the total of the Kodak Park employees 
still higher. 

The buildings at the Park house 
millions of dollars worth of valuable 
machinery, most of it specially built and 
impossible to duplicate on short notice, 
and huge stocks of raw material and 
finished products. To properly protect 
this property and to safeguard the 
employees, Kodak Park has every known 
measure for fire prevention. 

All the buildings recently put up are of 
concrete and are the last word in fireproof 
construction. The older steel structures — 
the best in their day — are being gradually 
pulled down and replaced with concrete. 

Fire walls and fire doors divide build- 
ings into sections, so should a fire start 
it can be held to one small point. 

Concrete and steel bridges provide 
passageways between buildings that have 
to be closely connected. Steel doors 
at each end of these passageways shut 
them off for fire purposes. 

The automatic sprinkler system is 
everywhere throughout the plant. Some 
of the buildings, in addition to the 
sprinkler system, have a means for 
throwing a veil of water, a regular 
young Niagara Falls, fifteen feet in 
advance of any approaching flames. 

Small hose and two and one-half gallon 
fire extinguishers are also placed through- 
out all the buildings, so you see Kodak 
Park takes no chances. 

Back of all this prevention is the 
Kodak Park Fire Department; regularly 




organized with one hundred and fifty 
men, under the direction of a Chief 
and two Deputy Chiefs. 

The latter are professional fire fighters, 
the Chief having been a Captain in the 
New York City Fire Department before 
coming to Kodak Park. 

The men are thoroughly drilled in all 
New York fire fighting tactics; they 
live close to the Park and are available 
for dutv at all hours. 

A night duty shift of seven men is 
kept at the Park Fire Headquarters, 
and the plant at night is thoroughly 
patrolled by a force of forty-four watch- 
men. The day patrol is looked after 
by the Chief and his assistants. 

In addition to the headquarters organ- 
ization, each department has its own 
force to handle the small hose, properly 
use the fire extinguishers and see that 
the employees all reach a place of safety . 




xA.ll the buildings have regularly 
established fire drills, the same as we 
have in all the plants. 

The eciuipment at headquarters 
includes a White motor truck, carrying 
two thousand feet of hose, a fifty gallon 
chemical engine, three hose carts, a 
hook and ladder truck, salvage wagon, 
tool wagon and also a pulmotor, smoke 
helmets and diving suits. 

In addition to this headquarters 
equipment, there are twenty-seven hose 
houses located over hydrants outside 
various buildings, each equipped with 
two hundred and fiftv feet of two and 

a half inch hose. Wrenches, axes, 
lanterns and other necessary things 
are also kept in these houses. 

The Park fire alarm system has all 
the features of a city fire alarm system 
and some special features of its own. 

When it comes to water, the Kodak 
Park Fire Department has the whole 
of Lake Ontario to draw from, as we 
have a private supply system direct 
from the lake six miles away. A pumping 
station on the lake shore, with a capacity 
of sixteen million gallons, pumps the water 
through a twenty-four inch main to a 
five million gallon reservoir in the Park. 

The Kodak Park Pumping Station, 
with a capacity of twelve million gallons 
(big enough for a city of one hundred 
and fifty thousand people), maintains 
a pressure of approximately one hundred 
pounds. In addition, there are two 
fire pumps with a capacity of one thous- 
and gallons each per minute. It is 
also possible to connect the Park system 
witli the Rochester city water system 
at a moment's notice. 

A steel tank holding one hundred and 
fifty thousand gallons, and one hundred 
and fifty feet above the reservoir, is 
another precaution. 

Nearly eighty hydrants and over four 
miles of six, eight, ten, twelve and 
sixteen inch mains guard the Park. 

Just to show that the Kodak Park fire 
protection really protects, is the fact 
that we have had but one serious fire 
at the Park in twenty years, and in 
that case the liuilding was struck by 




WHEN you visit the office of a 
physician for consultation and 
treatment, do you get all you pay for? 

In very many cases you do not. 

Your case may j^resent certain well- 
defined symptoms which will warrant 
the physician in prescribing treatment 
and remedy for that particular ailment, 
but, without a thorough physical exam- 
ination, some far more serious condition 
may be overlooked. 

Many physicians depend too largely 
upon questioning the patient, looking 
at the tongue, taking temperature, and 
feeling the pulse, and ending up by 
handing out some pills to be taken, and 
advising the patient to return in a few 

With some simple ailments such as 
head colds, sore throats, etc., such 
examination may be suflBcient, but the 
doctor may be neglecting other important 
things which need attention. A thorough 
examination, preceded by a careful 
history of the case, should include 
inspection of the throat, temperature, 
pulse, blood-pressure (depending upon 
the age of the patient), listening to the 
action of the heart and lungs with the 
stethescope, testing of nerve reflexes, 
and palpation of the abdomen, especially 
when symptoms are referred to that 

This thorough examination may dis- 
close nothing more than the indicated 
ailment, and this is frequently the case; 
but on the other hand many very serious 
ailments have i)rogressed to the almost 
incurable stage because of a lack of early 
diagnosis. In this class are lung diseases, 
stomach or intestinal ulcers, cancer of 
the stomach or intestines, and other 
serious abdominal conditions. 

If a condition is not properly diagnosed 
at the start, it will naturally be mis- 
treated, which results in greater length 
of disa])ihty, and i)erhaj)s inability ever 
to regain normal health. 

Let us take a case or two in point: 
a patient became ill from ptomaine 

poisoning, and was treated by accepted 
methods. The patient did not seem to 
gain very fast, and after a long period of 
disability, consulted another physician, 
who discovered that she was suffering 
from tuberculosis, a condition which 
must have existed prior to the attack 
of ptomaine, and which could have been 
treated, had a thorough examination 
been made at first. 

A patient afflicted with goitre was 
treated for that only, while at the same 
time the patient was suffering from a 
serious heart condition. 

Another patient had an affliction of 
the nose and throat; he was treated 
for a long period by a nose and throat 
specialist with no improvement. A 
complete examination by another physi- 
cian disclosed that he was suffering from 

All these are instances of taking into 
account only a part of the human body 
and not all of it. 

These cases are actual ones, and can be 
supplemented by many others of equal 

If you go to a physician for treatment 
and receive but a superficial examination, 
you have placed yourself in the hands 
of the viTong man.

ONE of the factors in the growth of 
our company has been the fulhiess 
of understanding between the manage- 
ment and the employees. 

Our factories and offices are recognized 
as good places in which to w^ork, and 
where the square deal is the rule. 

Announcements of wage reductions 
and lay-offs on account of slackness of 
work are not pleasant, but under existing 
conditions both were inevitable, and we 
are glad to record that these announce- 
ments were received in the right spirit 
by those affected. 

Many problems difficult to solve still 
confront us — still confront business the 
world over — so that the process of going 
ahead — not getting back — to a sound 
and satisfactory basis, will necessarily 
be slow. 

It is useless to prophesy as to just how 
and when the desired results will be 
obtained, but there is no call for a pessi- 
mistic thought as to the final outcome. 

Our business has been built up upon 
a quality basis and our supremacy in 
the industry has been due to the fact 

that we produced the best goods and 
produced them first. 

Business conditions are bound to 
improve, perhaps sooner than is expected; 
meanwhile let us all bear this in mind. 

Organization success must depend upon 
the concerted individual efforts of those 
who compose it. Therefore, it is up to 
us who are on the job to make our every 
effort count to the fullest measure. 

We must work harder and think 
harder; we owe this not only to ourselves 
and the company, but to those of our 
associates who have been laid off, so 
that we may have them back again at 
the earliest moment. 

ONE of our editorial friends either has 
a good memory or else has been 
re-reading a book of his childhood days. 
He recalls to mind one of the adventures 
of Alice in Wonderland wherein she 
encountered the Red Queen of the chess 

It seems that Alice had a vague idea 
that the Red Queen, like the other 
characters of the chessboard, moved very 
slowly, so she was surprised indeed when 
the Red Queen seized her by the hand 
and dragged her along at a lively clip. 

Steadily the speed increased until Alice 
was running at a pace faster than she 
had ever before attained, and after a 
while she began to lose her breath and 
grow weary and ready to stop. 

But the Queen dragged her on and on, 
mile after mile, at the terrific speed, for 
hour after hour until, when they sud- 
denly stopped, Alice felt she would 

She looked about and with bewildered 
amazement discovered they were standing 
on the same spot whence they started. 

"This is funny," said Alice, "after all 
this running w^e are exactly where we 

"Yes, Alice," said the Red Queen 
seriously, "you have to go fast to stay 
where you are these days." 

And this story needs no revising to 
bring it up to date. 




FEW people realize the extent to which 
photography is employed in present- 
day industries. Not so many years ago, 
photography, aside from professional por- 
traiture, was considered mostly as an 
amusing pastime and a rather expensive 
hobby. Sensitive goods were unreliable 
and difficult to handle, and cameras and 
appliances cumbersome and crude, so 
that only the most enthusiastic and per- 
severing workers were rewarded with 
anything like success. To the far-sighted- 
ness and perseverance of a few men, and 
one man in particular, we owe much of 
the wonderful improvement in sensitive 
goods and apparatus which has brought 
photography to the front rank of import- 
ance in industry and science. 

Photographs Supplant Sample Case 

One of the first attempts to make use 
of photography commercially, was in con- 
nection with the printing trade, and the 
photo-engravings were first successfully 
used about 1893. Development of the 
printing art has kept pace with that of 
photography, and the result is shown in 
present-day illustrations of our books and 
magazines. Advertisers are able to pro- 
duce illustrations so attractive that 
attention is called to their goods with 
greater effect than any printed text could 
ever accomplish. Salesmen carry photo- 
graphs of their goods which are so 
perfect in detail of construction, text- 
ure, and even color, that the showing of 
the articles themselves is unnecessary. 

All important construction work is now 
photographed from start to finish, so that 
a complete record may be kept of the 
progress of the work from day to day. 
Such a record was made by the Govern- 
ment of the construction of the Panama 
Canal, and the photographs are on file in 
Washington^a complete and graphic 
story of this wonderful feat of engineering. 

Manufacturers are using photographs 
extensively in their factories for instruc- 
tion of employees, manufactured parts 

and the operation of machines and work- 
men being shown in the form of lantern 

The applications of photography to 
commerce have become so numerous that 
the field of the commercial photographer 
is almost limitless, and his work has come 
to include almost everything except 
portraits and landscapes. 

Accuracy Paramount in Commercial Work 

Strictly commercial work, such as pho- 
tography of manufactured articles and the 
illustrating of catalogues, deals with the 
technical side of photography rather than 
the artistic. The principal aim in such 
work is to obtain an accurate reproduction 
of the original in every detail. Any dis- 
tortion in the photograph is fatal; per- 
spective must be true and accurate, and 
the pictures should show every detail in 
both high-lights and shadows. For studio 
work, to avoid apparent distortion, a lens 
of long focus, 18 inches or 20 inches, must 
be used. A lens of short focus should 
never be used unless limited space pro- 
hibits the use of a long focus lens. A 
photographer who specializes in the pho- 
tographing of confectionery, recently told 
the writer that the greater part of his work 
is done with a lens of 36 inch focus. Anas- 
tigmat lenses are, of course, best, but 
excellent work may be done with the 
rectilinear. Extreme accuracy is essential, 
especially in photographing objects which 
show distinct lines, such as buildings, 
furniture, and machinery. In most work, 
speed in exposure is not of vital import- 
ance, and small stops may be used in the 
lens to ensure sharpness and depth of 

Advertisers in the magazines and papers 
are coming to realize more and more the 
advantages of good illustrations, and this 
field allows the photographer to exercise 
his artistic and decorative skill. It is a 
well-known fact that a good illustration 
in an advertisement is often of more im- 
portance in attracting favorable attention 



and selling the goods than is the printed 
matter. For the man making a start at 
commercial photography, the advertising 
field offers not only extremely interesting 
work, but work for which there is an ever 
increasing demand and good pay. 

Photographers Noic Specialize 

The continuous variety of subjects and 
problems brought to the commercial pho- 
tograj)her makes his work not only in- 
teresting but fascinating. He must work 
in all conditions of light and surroundings, 
and his success depends largely upon his 
individual ideas and ingenuity. Many 
commercial photographers now specialize 
in one line, such as glassware, crockery, 
jewelry, flowers, furniture, clothing, or 
shoes. Such work is done almost entirely 
in the studio, where lighting and accesso- 
ries may be to some extent permanently 
arranged. Others are ready to take up 
any sort of job which presents itself, and 
operators of this class must be extremely 
resourceful and ingenious in order to 
overcome the difficulties presented by 
poor lighting facilities and objectionable 
surroundings. Under such conditions, a 
plate of great exposure latitude is, of 
course, desirable. Double-coated plates, 
such as the Standard Orthonon, are best, 
and such plates are most free from hala- 
tion. One of the best single coated plates 
for all-around commercial work is the 
Seed 23, though such a plate requires 
more careful exposure and manipulation 
in the dark room than the double-coated 
plate. For most commercial work, ex- 
tremely rapid plates are neither necessary 
nor desirable, as the slower plates are 
cleaner working and of greater latitude. 
Eastman film is now made in emulsions 
of several different qualities and speeds, 
and is best for all kinds of work. Eastman 
film practically avoids all halation, re- 
quires no backing, is light and unbreak- 
able, and less expensive than double 
coated plates. 

Oriho Film for Interiors 

The commercial man is often called 
upon to photograph interiors where it is 

necessary to work directly toward the 
light, and for such a subject, our Com- 
mercial Ortho film is ideal. Excellent 
work of this nature may also be done on 
Eastman Portrait film, and this has the 
advantage of greater speed. 

For making copies of black and white 
studies, the Seed 2S plate is excellent, 
and by pro])er manipulation, a wide range 
of negative quality as regards contrast 
may be obtained. Eastman Commercial 
film is best for this work, or, if less con- 
trast is desired, Eastman Portrait film is 

For the copying of line drawings and 
similar work, where great contrast is 
essential, Seed Process plates and East- 
man Process film are best; they are low 
in speed, very clean working, and give 
extreme contrast. 

Problem to Render Tones Correctly 

Commercial photographers are often 
confronted with the problem of rendering 
correctly in a photograph, the tones of 
colored objects, such as paintings, signs, 
flowers, fruit, etc. They find that with 
the ordinary plates it is impossible to 
make a satisfactory photograph of such a 
subject, for instance, as a sign or de- 
livery car having black letters on a red 
ground. For this purpose, the Wratten 
Panchromatic plate, which is sensitive to 
all colors, overcomes the difficulty and 
renders the colors in a photograph with 
the same tone value as they appear to the 

]Many pieces of furniture are difficult to 
photogra})h correctly on the ordinary 
plate. For such work the orthochromatic 
plate is used with a light yellow filter. 
This brings out the texture and grain of 
the wood in a way that can not be pro- 
duced on an ordinary plate. Eastman 
Commercial Ortho film is best for such 

A few books have been published on the 
subject of commercial photography; not- 
ably those by Hance, Schreiver, and Rose. 
However, only general principles may be 
learned from books; practice and ex- 
perience bring success.

Department, still very much on the job. 

"Jack" says that he was hired by Mr. 
Eastman in person on Thursday morning. 
July 15, 1884; so he completed thirty- 
seven vears of continuous .service on 

July 1.5th this year. His first work was 
dicing out plate separators on an old 
Gordon press, and running errands. 
Mr. Hoffman put in ten years at State 
Street, sixteen years at Kodak Park, 
and has been with the Canadian Kodak 
Company for eleven years, making thirty- 
seven years all told. 

Judging from the picture of Mr. 
Hoffman, which we present to you 
herewith, he looks good for at least 
twenty-five years more- Here's hoping. 


AFTER almost a half century of 
activity in the photographic industry, 
C. H. ("Pop") Wells is going to have a 
real vacation. He has retired from his posi- 
tion as Manager of Zimmerman Brothers, 
St. Paul, and plans, with Mrs. Wells, 
to spend the fall and winter visiting and 
playing around in either Florida or 

"Pop" Wells is one of the best known 
stockhouse men in the West, with a legion 
of friends; so he will be sure of a good 
time wherever he goes. 

Mr. Wells is succeeded by Robert 
Hoffman as ^Manager of the Zimmerman 
Brothers house, which is also good news 
for "Bob's" manv friends. 


The Editors of Itiditsirial Management 
state that there never has been a time in 
the history of our country when the 
])ractice of thrift — by individuals, cor- 
porations, liud government — was more 

Thrift they define as including "the 
elimination of waste and the utilization 
of so-called waste products".

How would you stack up if your next door 
neighbor should get you in the corner and say; 
"I want to get a few pointers about taking pictures. 
I understand you work for the Kodak company; 
so I guess this is the place to go for a little first 
hand information." 

That is the general opinion of your friends and 
acquaintances, isn't it.' They natiu-ally think 
that a man or woman employed at the Camera 
Works ought to know the ins and outs of the product 
just the same as they expect a baker to know how 
to make good bread or a farmer to produce good 
crops. It's a perfectly natm-al conclusion for your 
next-door neighbor to make, but — how much do 
we Camera makers really know? The finest way 
to get photographic knowledge and experience 
is to go out and dig for it; equip yourself with a 
camera, a tripod, and a few rolls of film and figure 
out the best way of getting results. You will find 
that the average man is anxious to learn a useful 
hobby. You can do your part in salesmanship 
by learning the proper usage of the goods you 
produce. There are hundreds of books wTitten on 
photography, but sometimes a little first hand 
information is of more value than all the written 
material ever published. 

Perhaps you are of the opinion that Mr. Next- 
Door Neighbor is not interested in photography 
anyway. If so, just ask Fred Brehm about his 
experiences this past summer. Mr. Brehm had an 
opportunity to visit men's and boys' camps during 
the past summer, and the minute the news got 
aroimd camp that a photographer was coming — 
well, you have only to look at the illustrations on 
page 13 to realize that interest was at high pitch. 

Fred hardly had time to eat and certainly had no 
time to relax. One of the camps he visited is 
located on the hilly shores of Lake Keuka and 
attended by Boy Scouts — over a hundred of them — 
ranging in age from twelve to eighteen years. 
Every one of them is anxious to become a real man 
and to learn, not only how to work but to play 
like a man, and acquire hobbies which will be useful 
as well as entertaining. 

One of the necessities of camp life — as im- 
portant as a pocket knife or a flashlight — is a 
camera. As the boys say: "We can tell about the 
good times, but pictures prove it." Every boy 
who owned a Brownie was enthusiastic and a 
subject of envy from those who did not have a 
camera of any kind. The boys have a great thirst 
for knowledge regarding photography, but Mr. 
Brehm learned that there is general lack of knowl- 
edge regarding exposure. The amateur photog- 
raphers do not fully understand the relation of one 
diaphragm to another. Nor do they associate 
shutter speed with diaphragm openings. 

The interest of the boys cannot be doubted after 
a glance at the accompanying illustrations and 
these boys are typical of the men who a decade 
hence will become Mr. Next-Door Neighbor. 

Realizing that many of our own numljer are far 
from photographic experts, the Industrial Relations 
Department proposes to organize another class in 
amateur photography, similar to the one which 
had such a successful career last spring. However, 
if you are interested, do not wait until the class 
has opened to start; just dig right in on your own 
hook. If you need pointers — there are very few 
of us who do not — get in touch with this department. 


Now that the boys and girls are coming back to 
work again, I hope that it will be possible to main- 
tain the splendid record we possess in the matter 
of so few accidents in the Camera Works. 

Of course, every one will be anxious to work at 
top speed, but do not forget that safety always 
pays in the long run. The giving of careful atten- 
tion to so-called minor injuries is, I believe, the 
sav'ing of many a serious case, especially in regard 
to scratches and small cuts. A common practice 
is to perform a "home" operation with a needle, 
or penknife, without sterilization of the "surgical 
instrument". Everything is fine for a few 
days, when the injured member starts to throb 

and becomes inflamed. Result — in most cases^ 
that dreaded condition called blood poisoning. 

The most efficient way to prevent all accidents 
is to rouse the general public to realize responsi- 
bility, individually and collectively. There is no 
question that the seeds of Safety First have gone 
forth and, in the majority of instances, found root 
in fertile ground, but some have fallen in stony 
places, and it is there that we who understand can 
do so much good. Preach the message of safety, 
not only for your own comfort but for the lives of 

Richard H. Jennings

This caption sounds like a revivalist's topic for a 
sermon. Well, this is no sermon, but it is a revival 
— to wit — the new year's activities of that somewhat 
micontrollable infant — the Camera Works Recrea- 
tion Club. 

We say "imcontrollable" because the finances of 
the Club are governed by the number of members 
we have, and the outlook for our current year is not 
particularly brilliant. This is the way it goes. 

The Camera Works year — as far as the Club is 
concerned — ends in September. The company's 
year ends in December. The offer of matching 
dollar for dollar rims from January to December — 
a yearly proposition. Therefore, our new year, 
which should have started on October 1st, has to be 
financed before January 1st, otherwise we lose the 
company's ©O'er for this year. 


A membersliip drive for the Camera Works 
Recreation Club will start on November 21st. 
Yearly dues are one dollar for men, and fifty cents 
for women. Everyone is eligible to join. 

Cards -n-ill be handed to you for signature. We 
figure on a one-himdred per cent, membership. 

Of course you will not be forced, or even persuaded, 
but those of us who have weathered the storm of 
depression, and are back on the jolj again, will 
naturally be jealous of our one hmadred per cent, 
reputation in past performances; so we don't 
expect any refusals, especially as every cent collected 
is spent for the members' amusement. It's just a 
question of paying for value which each member 
knows he or she will receive. 

Admitting, then, that we will get everyone in on 
membership, our total amoimt of money to last 
for twelve months will be very near one thousand 
dollars. Now comes the problem of how we are 
going to spend it wisely, and to the best advantage. 

To this end, the Board of Managers is holding 
special meetings to adopt an equitaljle budget for 
all sports and pastimes. One sure bet is that a 
smaller amount of our total resources will be spent 
on sport, and more on "get-together" social 

Don't forget, Xovember 21st is the day we all 
have a chance to sign up for the big fun league. 
Don't disappoint yourself in the twelve months 
to follow by failing to join. 


What are we going to do about basketball this 

Owing to slackness of work, almost all of our 
basketball men are no longer with us. 

There is a splendid scheme on foot to organize 
a company league comprising four teams, namely: 
Kodak Park, Hawk-Eye, Main Office, and Camera 
Works. The K. P. A. A. has generously offered 
to the League free use of their Assembly Hall, 
both for games and practice. Last year, we had 
considerable difficulty in finding a place to play, 
and this year we will probably have some trouble 
in findmg players. 

There must be dozens of chaps who like to toss 
the ball. We don't expect near-professional players 
— in fact, we are not looking for them. This 
proposed League is just a friendly affair to play 
ball, not to win or lose. Xo "outsiders" will be 
allowed to play. We'll all meet for a good time 
and have our little dances after the games. 

The other three teams are pretty well set for 
players. We Camera Workers don't want to 
throw a monkey wTench into the works and spoil 
the fun. Never mind if you "haven't played for 
years" or you "do not play well enongji"; if you 
want to play, come right along and tell "Charlie" 
Rogers or the Secretary of the Club. 


We have on file, in the Industrial Relations 
Department, one year's current nimibers of several 
technical and trade magazines and papers. If you 
wish to look up a solution to a certain problem 
in yom- work or studies, or if you wish to see the 
latest wTinkle on new ideas and equipment, just 
ask your foreman to get m touch with "Herb" 
Thorpe, and together we will try to cover your 


We are doing a very unusual thing this month 
in asking you to give us back something we have 
given you. 

It is a fine thing to have a permanent record 
of the "doings" of the Camera Works, and one of 
the best mediums to get information is through the 
pages of the Kodak Magazine and the old Camera 
Works Bulletin. 

We are, of coiu-se, "all set" on a complete file 
of the Magazine, but the Bulletin numbers are few 
and scattered. 

We are asking you to hunt uj) the following 
numbers for us; 

Year of 1915 — January, February, April, June, 

Year of 191G — January, March. 

Year of 1917 — Ylay, July, August, December. 

Year of 1920 — January, February. 

Please let the Editor know if you can discover 
any of these Bulletins. They will be greatly 


Every employee of the Camera Works has the 
privilege of using the above service for his instruc- 
tion and anrusement. This section of the Industrial 
Relations Department is open each Friday from 
12:;30 to 1 :00 o'clock. As a rule, we have on hand a 
variety of film rolls, packs, Velox and Azo paper, 
two packets of each being given, free of charge, to 
those desiring them. 

Do 7iot send a messenger to get what you need. 
The goods will be gi^•en only to those employees 
making application in person. The hours and day 
of giving this service will be strictly adhered to, 
each Fridav, from 12:.30 to 1:00 o'clock. 




Now that the pennant is floating from the home 
of the New \oriv Giants, it is time to pipe all hands 
on deck to review the king of autumn outdoor sports 
— football. The industrial athletic clubs in this 
vicinity do not seem to be partial to the accepted 
idea of American football, but soccer is at last 
coming into its own. This splendid form of athletics 
is accepted in high school recreation activities as 
one of the foremost means not only to develop 
muscular strength, but also to develop the agility 
of body and mind. 

Some idea of the growing popularity of the game 
can be gained from the fact that there are six first 
class teams in Rochester alone, not counting the 
High Schools and the minor teams. Soccer football 
is by no means as popiJar in the eastern states as 
it is in the South, so you can rightly figure that 
there are several himdred teams in the major 
leagues, all competing for the American Association 
Football Cup. The major league is divided into 
districts, Rochester, Buffalo and Jamestown coming 
under the northwestern division. 

The following teams comprise the Flower City 

Camera Works, Celtics, Kodak Park, Moose, 
Hollanders, McXaughton Rangers. 

The latter two teams have dropped out of the 
competition, and at the close of the spring season — 
soccer being a cool weather game, and not followed 
during the summer — the Celtics were one point 
ahead. Sunday, October 9th, our Camera Works 
team beat Kodak Park, and our next battle is with 
the Moose. 

Kodak Park holds the local record of going up 
to the fourth round of the fight for this much 
coveted cup, but forfeited their right to proceed 
by not having a full complement of players on the 
field at the scheduled time of play. 

Our team is not wholly composed of men em- 
ployed in the State Street factory, but we hope that, 
as time progresses, we will have an all-Camera 
Works eleven. Our team lines up as follows; 

*George Foster 


*Svdney Ackroyd Jack Sunderlin 

FuU Backs 
* James Gordon Dick Muckrie 

Half Backs 
*Frank Gordon Xe\nlle O'Connor 

Inside Right 
*Standus O'Connor *Joseph Burns 

Inside Left 
*Arleigh Heaphy *Jack Heaphy 

Outside Right 
George McMiu-ry George Hewith 

Outside Left 

Archie Pemberton 

Center Forward 

*Caniera Works employees. 

Why not go out Sunday afternoon and watch the 
boys play.^ Jack Heaphy, Junior, who is Manager 
of the team, will gladly tell you where, and when. 
If you have not seen this game, spend an hour on 
the field, and we guarantee that you will be as 
enthusiastic about it as the players are. 

Lejt to Right — Sydney .\ckroyd. Captain; formerly one of Kodak Park's finest full-backs. George F. Foster, Goal; formerly a Canadian 
star player. Jack Heaphy, NIanager. Archie P. Pemberton, Center; known as the "dashing, slashing forward." Joseph 
Burns, Forward; who played with the British Army in India. 




Our first official baseball team is shown in the 
above picture. We are always pleased to receive 
for publication early endeavors in group movements. 
The picture is especially interesting at this time, 
when we are eagerly looking forward to the opening 
of the baseball season. Most of the boys are still 
workinghere. The mascot is "puffed up with pride." 

This team appeared in 1910 with the following 
players: William Burns, "Ted" LaPalm, "Mike" 
Couts, William Gibson, George Foulks, Albert 
Altman, Charles McCanne. Lee Yoder, Frank 
Miller, "Ben" Avery, Harry Robertson, "Bill" 
Stark Charles Warner, Jack Justke. and George 
Brennen. How many can you recognize? 


Last bowling season the Recreation Club organ- 
ized a factory league composed of the fair sex, 
and a similar league among the girls from the 
office. The ventiu-e was so successful that the 
members of both organizations got together without 
bothering the Club at all, and, according to all 
evidence, have formed one league; two teams from 
the office matching against two from the factory. 

Oh, yes, they have adopted a name, but we 
don't quite know whether the manager has been 
"adopted." Anyway, they have a manager, and 
Leo Nowack is to be congratulated on having so 
many lady friends, and the girls are in luck to have 
such a capable man to instruct them. 

These are the members of the Camera Girls 
Bowling League; 

Florence Waterstraat, Edith Waterstraat, Delia 
Meerdink, Agnes Darcy, Agnes Hart, Mabel Kane, 
Lucy Diesel and Elsie Manzek, alternate; Kathryn 
Keagle, Theresa Megerle, Helen ^\^lite, Bertha 
Schmidt, Laura Musson, Ruth Kehoe, Florence 
Rosche, Madeline Smith, Marie Fitzpatrick, Marie 
Kelly, Peggy Weaver, Mildred Mildahn, Anna 

Each Monday, at the Genesee Recreation Hall 
the girls will roll, bowl, and slide on alleys Nos. 
9, 10, 11, 12. Their total average last season ran a 
close race with the men's teams; so, if you want to 
see some real good work, spend an hour or two 
between 6 and 8 o'clock, and you may learn a few 
pointers on bowling. 


That the Camera Works is one of the finest 
equipped factories in New York State.^ Two fire 
insurance inspectors recently, on making a thorough 
search through the State Street buildings, com- 
mented on that fact, and had no recommendations 
to suggest for improvement regarding fire preven- 
tion apparatus. 

It's a great thing to know that we are connected 
with a factory that is so well equipped for safety. 
By strictly observing the rules, and keeping the 
place free from litter, we are assured of a reasonably 
safe place to work. It is the duty of us "old timers" 
to mould the "young" employees into our way of 
thinking. We maintain a certain standard of 
working conditions, which the management has 
established. Let's be jealous of our reputation, 
and see that "the other fellow" helps us keep it. 


Now that the "reading season" is closely following 
outdoor recreation, and the inclement weather 
reminds us of home, the fireside, and literature, 
we are endeavoring to give you efficient service in 
the fiction library section. Arrangements are 
being made with the Rochester Mimicipal Library 
to keep us supplied with a variety of books for home 

Take full advantage of this library. On Mon- 
days, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1'2;30 to 1:00 
o'clock, you can exchange books, or, if you have not 
already done so, fill out an application.

The first season of the K. O. R. C. Quoit League 
has ended and head quoiter, Charles Thurston, of 
the Shipping Department, who had the big job, 
has oiled up the irons and laid them away until 
next year. There were one hundred and sixteen 
men in the League, which consisted of fifty-eight 
teams. A good deal of sport and exercise was 
derived by the participants in this noon-hour sport 
and next year with better grounds and an earlier 
start, an even better season is expected.

Department celebrated the twenty-fifth anniver- 
siry of her connection with the Eastman Kodak 
Company. In honor of the event and in recognition 
of her long and faithful service, several members 
of the Kodak Office who had been associated with 
her for about the same length of time, presented 
her with a very beautiful wTist watch of platinum, 
and twenty-five exquisite roses. The remembrance 
came as a complete surprise, making the occasion 
particularly enjoyable. During the day, Miss 
Hoctor was the recipient of many expressions of

Without a doubt "■(Jliarlie" Howard of tlie Stock 
Department is the official clam baker of Kodak Office. 

Early this fall "Charlie" superintended the 
building of one of the most up-to-date and scientific 
clam steamers that has ever put in an appearance 
at any such function, and its efficiency was demon- 
strated at the Stock Department picnic, held at 
Walter Capell's cottage, Oklahoma, West Webster, 
on Saturday, October 1.5th. The outers left 
directly after work Saturday noon, and went to 
Oklahoma via auto truck. 

Heaps of steaming eats were awaiting the hungry 
crowd. The steamer proved to be a wonder — 
chicken, fish, clams, potatoes, and chowder were 
all cooked to perfection and the greater part of the 
afternoon was spent in enjoying them. There was, 
however, time left for dancing and the transporta- 
tion committee brought every one safely home 
before sundown. A vote of thanks was extended 
to '"Charlie" and Walter, for everyone had a ripping 
good time.

September !28th completed tlie thirty-second 
year of continuous employment for Irving Hoyt, 
Manager of the Credit Department. The members 


of the department assembled in his office to con- 
gratulate him and he was presented with a bouquet 
of thirty-three roses; one for each year and one to 
grow on. iSIr. Hoyt is only a yoimgster yet, and 
looks good for another 32 years at least. 


Seventy-four employees of the Maintenance 
Department have organized a Welfare Club. 
Albert Hayter has been elected Secretary and 
Treasurer, and the general committee members 
are Oscar Vetter, Elmer Barton, William Carter, 
and Mary Fox. Regular payments to the treasiu-er 
create a preparedness fund for financing the activn- 
ties of this club. 


A surprise party was held tliis month at the home 
of Lorena Cooper to celebrate the Ijirthday of Ethel 
Williamson. Oh, those sausages and home-made 
goodies! Ethel would even be willing to have 
another birthday right away if she could have 
such a nice party again. 


The Service Department bowling team started 
the l9'-2\ and lO'^'S season at Elm Hall in one grand 
blaze of glory. Captain Nowaski gave the orders 
to take three games from the Industrial Relations 
and, by heck, the team took "Len" at his word, 
for they sure "copped" the three games easily — 
Well, that's the way it should be. 


Helen Storr and Ross Robertson, both of the 
Sales Department, were married on Tuesday, 
October 18th, at Trinity Church. Helen was one 
of the most popular girls in the Sales Department 
and Ross is to be very "muchly" congratulated. 
\'ariety, kitchenware, and grocery showers were 
given the bride-to-be by Catliryn Kennedy, Bessie 
Tracey and Pegg\' Schnetzer, and showers of good 
wishes are extended to the happy pair from their 
friends in the Sales. 


The Kodak Office Glee Club has at tl}e present 
time about eighty active members. "Dave" 
Evans of the Bookkeeping Department, who 
wields the baton, is speedily getting the chorus 
into form, and a musical comedy is already being 
rehearsed for presentation during Holiday time. 

Fred Hiiber of the Billing Department is accom- 
panist, and Myrtle Dalgety is secretary of the club. 
Some additional support is needed for the bass 
and tenor parts and the leader will be glad to hear 
of any K. O. R. C. members who are interested. 

Rehearsals are held every Wednesday noon at 
l'-2:45 in the Giris' Rest Room on the third floor of 
Building (>. Have your lunch early, and come up 
and sing.

of golf history was witnessed at the Genesee Valley 
Park course on Saturdav, October loth. 


Walter Pierce and Fred Rogers staged the final 
round of play in the K. O. R. C. Golf Tournament, 
Rogers winning by the close margin of 3 up and 2

Irene Carey likes everytliinfi al)oiit Premo so 
well that she has remained with us ten years. At 
the early age of fifteen, Irene jiresented her applica- 
tion for employment and was given work in the 


Assembly Department. Irene's work in tlie Assem- 
bly Department requires care and skill in maknig 
the plate holders and adapters absolutely light 
proof, and the fact she has been with us for 
such a length of time proves that she is a ver\' 
efficient and capable worker. 

Do you see any of your Kodak friends in the 
picture below? Can you recognize the Kodakers 
who attended the picnic of the Rochester Safety 


Of course, all you boys and girls who have fathers, 
brothers, mothers or sisters working at Premo 
know what a time you had saving enough pennies 
to buy Mother or "Dad" that Chri-stmas present 
last year. Well, the task will be easy this year. 
Just sit down now, and write that Christmas story 
you have been thinking aljout, and earn one of the 
prizes annoimced in the September i.ssue of the 
Kodak Magazine. 


We are all aware of the fact that many a dollar 
can be wasted right in our plant by the careless 
handling of material. Screws, rivets, nails, small 
pieces of brass, aluminum, sometimes even tools 
can be saved by a little care on the part of every 
employee. There is always a possibility of un- 
earthing from our rubbish containers something 
of value, which has been dropped on the floor, and 
would be a complete loss if it were not for the sharp 
eyes of our cleaners. If you .should happen to 
drop a slightly worn tool or a piece of material, 
pick it up. This is no time for needless waste. 
It's up to every one of us to assist in cutting down 
the cost of production. 


Witli the indoor season close at hand again, we 
are looking forward to the good times of the Premo 
Club and its weekly entertainment, under the 
direction of the different committees. "Bill" 
(ierstner seems to have a faculty for getting the 
right kind of material to produce a good show, 
and for this reason he was again selected for this 
important part of the connnittee. Every Premo 
Club member may bring his friends and family and 
feel assured of seeing entertainments worth while 


Mary is engaged. John is to be married next 
month. Ruth had a party last week, and so did 
Homer. \es, Premoers are frequently having 
get-togethers and outings and we would like to 
include such notices and happenings in our section 
of the Kodak Magazine. Let's have your help! 
Come across with the news! 






December 6th, 7tli, 8th, and 9tli are the dates 
set for the Third Annual Exhibition and Show 
of the Kodak Park Fur and Feather CUib. Details 
were gone over at the recent special meeting, 
which was very well attended, giving convincing 
evidence that the members are interested in the 
organization and its activities, particularly this 
one big event of the year. 

A Committee was appointed to draft a set of 
rules and regulations to govern the exhibit. Presi- 
dent Frank Hauser, as Chairman, will be assisted 
by Fred Habel, Charles Smith, Frank Armstrong, 
Charles Light, "Joe" Jansen and Howard Carey. 
This Committee will have complete supervision of 
entries, premium lists, prizes, and general 

As an incentive to the members to compete, it is 
announced that in addition to the usual line of 
ribbons awarded the winners, there will also be 
several cups and some cash prizes. Entries will 
close Tuesday, November 29th. The stock will 
then be placed in the Assembly Hall on Monday, 
December 5th, and everything will be in readiness 


At their picnic held recently at Grand View 
Beach, the members of the Research Laboratory 
continued the pleasant custom started the year 
before, by presenting Carrie Stewart with a beauti- 
ful brooch in honor of her twenty-one years' service 
with the Eastman Kodak Company. The pre- 
sentation was made by Mr. Haste, following some 
preliminary remarks by Dr. Mees. 

Last year an attractive loving cup was presented 
to Harry LeB. Gray upon the completion of a 
similar length of service. 

for the opening on Tuesday morning. A small en- 
try fee will be charged exhibitors, rates to be an- 
nounced later. The Flower City Poultry Association 
has again given the Kodak Park Club the use 
of their pens and coops, a service which is greatly 

A special feature of this year's exhibit will be 
the Egg-Laying Contest. Entries will consist 
of five hens to each coop, the coops being specially 
constructed and locked. Results will be recorded 
each night up until eight o'clock on Friday, at 
which time the winners will be announced. In 
the event of a tie in number of eggs the winner will 
be decided by weight. It is expected that about 
twelve persons will enter birds in this event, rep- 
resenting several breeds of celebrated layers. 

As usual the Show will be open to the public 
and no charge will be made either day or evening. 
You are invited to attend, together with your 
family and friends. The beautiful cup won by the 
Kodak Park Club in the Industrial Division of 
the Flower City Show last year, will be on exhibition. 


Louise Murphy of Building 23 is the winner of 
the Girls' Handicap Tennis Tournament for 1921. 
In all, twenty-four girls were entered for the tourna- 
ment this season, although a large number of 
matches went by default. Vacations and the 
extreme hot weather of the summer affected the 
progress considerably. 

Satisfaction with the handicap type of tourna- 
ment has been expressed quite generally, and, in 
view of its superiority over the elimination tourna- 
ment, the event will undoubtedly be carried out 
along these lines again next season. 





It would iiidoed he liard to find a team with a 
name more appropriate to express its rightful 
position in anything than the "Headlights." This 
bunch, as representatives of the Garage, took the 
Building 30 team into camj) for three straight 

for the evening were the best made, his average 
being 198 for the three games. 

Indications point to a much faster League this 
year than in the past. The fact that the Camera 
League has not been organized leaves several of 

games on the opening night of the K. P. A. A. ^he best men available. "Charlie" Xatt, seasoned 

Kodak rark veteran, has been signed by the Daub- 
ers of the E. C. & P. Department, Thistle is with 
the Film Outfit, Servis with the Headlights, and 
Beiickman, the perpetual Kodak Park champion, 
is booked by the Ponies of Department 50. The 
only member of last year's ("amera League team 
not yet landed is Behrns, although several of the 
teams are making a strong bid for his service. 

Matches are rolled every Thursday evening at 
the Genesee Bowling Hall on South Avenue and, the 
fans are invited to drop in and see the boys in action. 

Bowling schedule, and thereby jumped into first 
place in the League. 

Some mighty good games were accounted for, 
even though this was the first attempt for some of 
the men this year. Both the Ponies and Head- 
lights went over the 900 mark for team totals, and 
in the individuals eight men rolled 200 or better. 
James Hart of the Ponies had high game for the 
evening — 236, and Harold Servis of the Headlights 
went over twice with 209 and 203. Servis's scores 


Last spring, after playing into the fourth round 
in the second half of the U. S. Cup Competition 
Series, Kodak Park was forced to default to the 
Goodrich team of Akron, Ohio. This, however, 
was the best showing ever made by a local eleven 
and encouraged the players to enter the series of 
1921-22. However, the Park players were not so 
fortunate in the present series, but were eliminated 
in the first round by the Camera Works team on 
Sunday, October 9th, although an extra period of 
thirty minutes was necessary to decide the 

The efforts of the Kodak Park team will now be 
devoted to winning the R. & D. Trophy. In this 
series the Park stanrls in second place, one point 
behind the Celtics. The first match of the fall 
series was played late in October. 

Some little difficulty is being experienced in 
producing a team this season to compare with that 
of previous years in view of the loss of several very 
good players. Nevertheless, the Park is making a 
strong effort to retain the position they have won 
and held in the Soccer world. 


The final match in the Second Annual Golf 
Tournament of the Kodak Park Athletic Associa- 
tion was played on Sunday, October 2nd, William 
P. Anderson of the Black Paper Department being 
pitted against his brother, Harold T. Anderson of 
Building 15. William won out by a safe margin. 
Taking it all in all, progress was very smooth 
during the play-off, there being only one holdup, 
the (joodridge-H. Anderson match of the first 
round. On two occasions these players met and 
finished a tie. Goodridge later defaulted to And- 
erson, who then played Nelson Bruce, winning 
by acknowledgment. Sixteen entries were re- 
ceived this year, and a large number of new players 
who did not feel qualified to compete in this tourna- 
ment will be available another season. A field of 
not less than fifty players is anticipated for next 
year's event. 

Ray Whitmore of the Roll Coating Department 
is the proud father of a bouncing baby boy. Milton 
Ray was born September 25th and weighs seven 
pounds. Congratulations. 





The first dinner meeting of the Kodak Park 
Foremen's Club for the l92l-'-2'i season was held 
on Thursday, October 13th. After the two very 
enjoyable outings held this summer, the Cobourg 
trip and the clam bake, the men were more than 
anxious for a chance to get together and talk them 

Speaker, Foremen's Club Meeting 

About three hundred and fifty were present, 
including guests from other Eastman Divisions. 
During the dinner which was served at 6:00 o'clock 
in the dining hall. Damon's Orchestra entertained, 
featuring "Alf" INIonk, trombone soloist. Motion 
pictures of the smnmer outings were shown after 
the dinner. 

The speaker of the evening was Dr. C. E. K. 
Mees, the title of his address being "The Road to 
Wealth." The highly pleasing manner in which 
Dr. Mees portrayed the value of research work 
with its relation to the world's advancement, won and 
held the undivided attention of his audience 

The next meeting will be held around the middle 
of Novemljer and an equally good time is assured. 


An even dozen girls reported for the girls' bas- 
ketball practice held last month, every one anxious 
and ready for the opening of the season. Last 
year's team is practically intact and with the wealth 
of new material available, the Park "Quint" should 
be by far the strongest playing team yet produced. 

Luck seems to be with the girls from the very 
start. To begin with, Charles Thompson has 
agreed to take charge as coach, and will be assisted 
by Jack Brightman. There is no ciuestion that the 
success of the team last season was due to the knowl- 
edge and ability to obtain results of the coaches 
and willingness of the players. This spirit still 
exists and promises the best of results for 19'-21-'-22. 

The first game will be played abovit the first of 
December, although the choice of opponent has 
not yet been decided. In view of the ease with 
which the Kodak Park girls defeated all the local 
teams last season, it is expected that considerable 
trouble will be experienced in securing dates with 
local talent, which will necessitate the bringing 
here of out-of-town organizations. The reputation 
of the Kodak girls has traveled far, so that they 
are recognized by all leadmg girl team managers. 

The following girls at present comprise the 
squad; Cecelia Korn, Louise Singleton, Ethel 
Stuck, Julia Thayer, Matilda Hanley, Elizabeth 
Fratter, Anna Chase, Lillian Beatty, Jennie De- 
Graft' and Marion De Burgemister. The latter two 
girls formerl\' played with the Hawk-Eye team. 


On Wednesday evening, October I'^th, the men 
of the Pay Roll Department, Building 34, gave a 
party for Ed\\ard Hogestyn, a prospective bride- 
groom. An excellent dinner was consumed at 
Gasner's Restaurant, which was followed by some 
fine stories and songs. Yes, Eddie was decorated 
with the customary outfit from bib to rattle. Fred 
Dierdorf rendered several very pleasing violin 

From Gasner's the party shifted to the Temple 
Theatre for the remainder of the evening. 

Everyone voted it a fine party and no one enjoyed 
it more than the prospective bridegroom himself. 

"Ed" was married on Monday, October 17th, 
to Flora Sherman, formerly of the Pay Roll Depart- 
ment. Our best wishes are extended to both. 

Charles Thompson of the Stores Department 
was married to Deltha Ainsworth of the Velox 
Department on October 11th. "Charlie" is coach 
of the girls' basketball team. 

Prove that They .Are Fishermen 





Althougli Kodak Park for the past seven or eight 
years has had one of the fastest and best known 
basketball teams in this part of the country, which 
has met and very often defeated the best of semi- 
pro teams, the situation has been far from satis- 
factory in some respects. 

To be sure, we are handicapped by one or two 
things. First of all. the distance of the Kodak 
Park court from the center of the city, and the long 
walk from the car line, particularly in stormy 
weather, has helped to keep the attendance at a 
low figure. In order to offset these things, it was 
necessary to be assured of local support before 
risking the loss of six or seven hundred dollars. 
A few weeks ago a letter was sent to each member 
of the Association asking for a pledge of his support. 
The object of this was two-fold. First, to determine 
the actual number of persons who were interested 
in a team to the extent that they would pledge 
themselves to support it, and. secondly, to under- 
write the proposition, it being determined to have 

the best team in Rochester or none. Only about 
sixty persons returned favorable answers, and, in 
acting upon the matter at the next meeting of the 
Board of Directors of the Association, it was voted 
to discontinue the semi-pro team for this year. 
The team will reappear when popular demand 
makes it advisable, thL-; demand to be accompanied 
of course by a reasonable assurance of local support 
sufficient to guarantee the success of the venture. 
This, however, does not mean there will be no 
basketball at Kodak Park this winter. Plans for 
a Kodak League along the lines of the Baseball 
League have been laid, and Kodak Park, with such 
men as Brightman, Heaney, Bonhurst and many 
others, should be able to do what in baseball %\e 
found impossible, in the way of winning games. 
Then, too. there will be the Department League, 
composed of eight fast teams, to say nothing of 
the girls" championship team, which is practically 
intact and readv for the whistle. 


Laughter and eats were the two outstanding 
featiu-es of the farewell party given by the girls of 
Kodak Park to Marion Burns of Building '26 at 
the y. W. C. A. on Tuesday evening. Septemlier 
20th. Marion has left the company to become the 
Dride of Albert Mcnti, another Kodak Parker 
employed in Department 50. Early in the prep- 
aration for the afiFau", it was seen that no ordinary 
house would be adequate. The logical place then 
became the Y. W. C. A., which fortunately was 
available. About fifty girls went directly from 
the works and soon were assembled aroimd the 
festive board. During the evening, several enter- 

taining numbers were given by those present, and 
a group flashlight was taken to stand as e\ndence 
of the popularity of one of the most ardent support- 
ers of all things Kodak. A very beautiful purse 
was presented to Marion by the girls as a token 
of their kind regard. 

Laura Connaughton, Marguerite Ellis, and 
Susan LaDine served as hostesses and the Reception 
Committee consisted of Mrs. D. E. Reid and ^L-s. 

The following week, Mrs. J. G. Jones, 129 
Trafalgar Street, entertained a number of Marion's 
friends at her home. 




Between fifty and sixty employees of the E. & M. 
Electrical Department attended the Annual Clam 
Bake held at Rifle Range Saturday, October 1st. 
The affair was a high success, and most of the credit 
goes to "Bill" Doane, permanent chairman, who 
looked after everything from arranging the date to 
tucking the boys into the machines for the home- 
ward vo%'age. 

"Tom" McCallion, foreman of the Electrical 
Department, was the guest of honor. "Tom" 
has been at Kodak Park over thirty years, and has 
spent the entire time in the same department. 


Chances for the Deuces to win the pennant in 
the K. P. A. A. Noon-Hour League are still bright, 
although a few bad breaks would do much to hurt 
their prospects. On October 8th they still led by 
.167 in percentage, with six games still to be played. 
Four of these were ties to be played off, and two 
were games postponed on account of rain. The 
interesting feature is that in two of these contests 
they are matched up with the hard-fighting Legion 
outfit. The Veterans won the spring series, and 
have been winning games steadily during the past 
couple of weeks. Among those work at bat 
is worthy of praise are;

On Wednesday, September 17th, at the Lake 
Avenue Baptist Church, Lyle Hutchinson from 
the Emulsion Coating Department, was married to 
Ruth Bastian. Dr. A. W. Beaven performed the 
ceremony. Congratulations and best wishes, Lyle, 
from "29." 

The Emulsion Coating Department extends its 
deepest sympathy to the family of the late Allan 
B. Perry, who died October 7th. 


The \ard Bowling League looks like a permanent 
affair. A meeting was held recently and the League 
re-organized for the year 1921-22. Matches are 
rolled every Tuesday evening at the Genesee Bowl- 
ing Hall. On the opening night both the Stores 
and Garage made a clean sweep and won three 
games each from the 'Vard and Receiving, while 
the Steel Shed was taking the odd game from the 
Office. This is only a starter, however, and it 
would be unwise to make any prediction as to a 
possible winner .so early in the season. 

The officers for this year are; President, Joseph S. 
Matteson; secretary, Clifford L. Zecker; treasurer, 
Almon Jeffers. 


It has been said that for a man to have a hobby 
or fad is good in many ways. There are a number 
of persons at Kodak Park who believe this to be 
true and they are making an effort to interest 
enough others to warrant the organization of a 
club to encourage hobbies. With the winter 
coming on why is this not a good idea.^ 

The object at present is to get together those 
interested in stamp collection, coins, curios, china 
minerals, butterflies, etc., to promote trading, 
buying and perfecting of collections. Already over 
a dozen have signified their willingness to belong 
and anyone interested is requested to send his or 
her name to Howard Carey, Building 34. 

Pearl Jacobs of the Film Spooling Department 2 
was married to Fred Green, formerly of Building 
33, on September 14th. We wish Pearl and Fred 
all sorts of good luck. 

Ralph MacLeod and Anna Harmon of the E. & M 
Stores Department were recently imited in marriage 
by the Rev. C. Waldo Cherry. Miss Harmon is 
the daughter of J. S. Harmon, I3uilding 48. 

William M. Zornow of the E. & M. Stores Depart- 
ment was recently married to Laura M. Perry of 
West Henrietta.

On a beautiful day in October, Saturday the 
fifteenth to be exact, the Hawk-P>ye men staged 
their hist outdoor party of the year. It was a 
regular old-time clambake. You've i)robabIy heard 
tell about it, even if you were not there, but have 
you heard about the weird combination catch by 
"Duke" Quetchenback and George Brennan in 
the anteprandial ball game? "Duke," one of 
Benny Levine's left fielders, let a short fly bound 
out of his hands, only to find that George, another 
left fielder, had dashed up in time to smother it 
for an out. "Duke" asked the scorers to give him 
an assist on the play, Ijut he got an error instead. 

Brennan was rewarded with a burst of applause, 
but no more so than "Bill" Vaeth when he made a 
valiant efl^ort to snare a fly with his hat. He 
didn't catch it, but the grandstand was bound to 
acknowledge his resourcefulness. In this first 
game, played at Seneca Park, Levine's team whipped 
"Jack" Holleys combination by what "Jack" 
claims was a narrow margin. 

The second act, the l)ake proper, opened imder 
the spreading chestnut trees at Rifle Range. The 
ball players had worked up a tremendous hunger, 
with the result that the slaughter was terrible. 
This was particularly true in I'mpire Downey's 
sector, where accumulated a rampart of clam shells 

that was appalling. Most of the feasters outdid 
themselves in the early stages of the meal, but 
faltered when the lobster was served. This was 
the cue for which "Harve" Putnam had waited, 
and he accounted for a number of unclaimed "Reds." 

A second ball game, played on a diamond sur- 
roimded by hills and marshes, resulted in a victory 
for the team led hy "Charlie" Becker, whose port- 
side slants were too strong for \'on Deben's crew. 
The cumulative effect of clams, chicken and lobster 
was noticeable in the playing of "Bill" Roach, 
who dropped every tlirow at first. It cropped 
out also in the arguments put up by Frank Fink, 
who disputed every decision that "Big Ed" Mc- 
Lean made. It was worth a great deal, though, 
to .see Claude Early run dowii out of the hills to 
miss a short fly from Becker's bat, and to see Max 
Weyh playing left field far behind the foul line. 

With the of the game, the party split into 
several groups. Fred Von Deben piloted the 
pinochle addicts to a secluded corner for a few 
hands, and "Rav" Farmen led off in a session of 
"double-Dutch." The rest of the gang — well, 
they hunted chestnuts until dark. "Larry" 
Tarnow and "Cliff" Johnson were unusually suc- 
cessful at the gentle sport, and went home with 
their pockets loaded. 


The great drama has come to a close, as Damon 
Runyon would say. By which we mean that the 
World's Series at the Hawk-Eye Polo Grounds finally 
came to a conclusion on October l~th. And 
whatever may have been the outcome of that minor 
affair in New York, we claim that the Yankees 
are champions. Piloted by "Iluggins" Weldon 
they took three straight games from "Muggsy" 
Bohan's Giants before the latter knew what was 
hapuening. Then the proverl)ial worm executed 
a lialf turn and two tie games resulted. The 
Giants were fighting hard and gave Weldon's 
men a hard tussle in tlic sixth encounter, losing 
by one nm. Weldon had to use a patched line-up 
at this stage of the series, and drop[)cd the next 
two games of the .series by decisive scores. On 
Monday, the sixteenth, however, he had all of his 

regulars and administered the final beating by a 
Woolworth score, 10 and 5. 

It was all very exciting. Our own Martin 
Tipple, aided and abetted by "Ed" McLean, 
George Brennan, and Jack Downey, took care of 
the umpiring. "Ray" Wall, although he is not 
built exactly on Judge Landis' slender lines, playetl 
the famous arbiter's role with great gusto. There 
were several excellent mob scenes during the classic 
play-off, and in general the fans (meaning ])racti<-al- 
ly the whole plant) were kept in a delightful state 
of excitement. 

There was only one thing WTong witli the 
"serious." It wasn't started quite early enough. 
It is planned to get it imdcr way more promptly 
next year, so that local enthusiasts may observe 
the winner here and then bet on the opposite team 
in the big-league games. 


Lulu Ford, formerly of the Pay Roll Department, 
and John (ilenn of the Mo\uiting Department 
were married on September 19th. Their many 
friends at Ilawk-Eye wish to extend their congratu- 
lations and best wishes. 


Mildred Miller of the Pitch Button Departnient 
and ('harles Lauterborn were married on September 
'i'2nd. We extend our hearty congratulations. 
Mr. and Mrs. Lauterborn are at home to their 
friends at 11 Morrill Street. 




The decision of October l^tli, to form a Kodak 
Basketball League, was greeted with hearty approv- 
al at Hawk-Eye. A preliminary survey of possible 
material showed the following men to be available: 
Baraford, Felerski, Hoffmeier Ingleby, Johnson, 
Keller, Levine, Prentice, Qu?tchenback, and 
Woodams. Of these Johnson, Levine and W'ood- 
ams played on last year's team. The list does 
not, of course, take into account the unknowTi 


Harry Altlioff, the genial chief of A-1 Stock, and 
Mrs. Bertha Peiffer were married on October 8th. 
The newlyweds left immediately on a motor trip 
through Xew England. 


Speaking of fish stories, it recently required nine 
men to bring home one pickerel. A party consisting 
of "Bert" Groh. ".\1" Crawford, George Brennan, 
"Bill" Schlegel, George Kramer, Henry Freitag, 
"Chris" Haus, William Heib and Charles Schlegel 
spent a week end at Port Bay. George Brennan 
brought home the one fine specimen. 


Have you noticed that we are sporting four 
baseball pennants.^ Foolish question! Every 
Hawk-p]yete shows unmistakal)le signs of swelling 
up while passing under the "muslins" that testify 
to Hawk -Eye's supremacy in both the Kodak and 
City Industrial Leagues in 19'-20 and 1921. Win- 
ning them is becoming a habit and we are going to 
take pains to cultivate it a little more next vear. 

Mary Buckley, Helen Sullivan and Frank Kohler 
have returned to the Cleaning and Inspecting 
Department. We are glad to see them again. 

Irma Weaver, formerly of the Centering Depart- 
ment, is in the Adirondacks for her health. Her 
many friends at Hawk-Eye wish her a quick and 
complete recovery. 

Charles E. Wolfe, father of Vana Wolfe, of the 
Cleaning and Inspecting Department, died on 
October 12th. We offer our sincere sympathy 
to the bereaved family. 

talent which the plant contains, and which the 
management hopes to root out. 

William T. Roach has been appointed manager 
and coach. "Bill's" court exploits of a few years 
ago are still familiar to the fans. His ability and 
knowledge of the game will be aided by a personality 
that sliould Ijring out everything there is in the 
players and produce a fighting combination. The 
Athletic Association is extremely fortunate in 
securing his services. 


The girls of the Friday Club resumed their 
activities on Friday evening, October 14th, when 
they held their first meeting of the season at the 
home of May Ever.son. Plans were discussed for 
the club's work during the winter months. The 
following Hawk-Eye girls are members: May 
Everson, Margaret Kiernan, Inez Prentice, Etta 
Wilcox, Hilda Specht and Marguerite Fehrenback. 

We miss the familiar figure of Michael Willig, 
after seemg him about the plant for sixteen years. 
"Mike" is out on a sick leave. He is seventy-six 
years of age, and may retire when he has recovered 
from his illness. 

Did you have an opportunity to see the Cripples' 
League in action? They staged some wild noon- 
hour battles of "two-'o-cat" after the regular indoor 
games. In the field "Pat" Patterson was the 
greatest "shark," that fish usually being thought of 
as typifying the height of uselessness. 

The issue of the Indoor Baseball League is still 
hanging fire at this WTiting, the death grapple 
between the Beechnuts and Luckys having been 
interrupted by the "World Series." At present 
the Beechnuts top the list, with the Luckys second. 
The Fatimas occupy third place and the Camels 
the cellar. 

John Lewis Radford, son of William Radford 
of the Single Achromatic Lens Department, was 
born September 29, 1921. Hawk-Eye extends its 
congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Radford upon 
the arrival of eight-pound John. 


John J. Dineen died on Sunday mornmg, Septem- 
ber 25th, in Boston, Mass., following an operation. 
John was one of the oldest and best known of 
Hawk-Eye employees and his death was a distinct 
shock to all of us. He had returned to Boston 
after an operation that was only partially successful, 
and, while it was evident that the second one would 
be quite serious, both John and his friends expected 
that he would be with us again in a short time. 

He was born in Boston on January 9, 18.5.5. At 
an early age he entered the employ of the Blair 
Camera Company and came to Rochester with 
that concern a number of years ago, when the Blair 
Company was taken over by the Eastman Kodak 
Company. He retained his position as a wood- 

worker and remained a faithful Kodak employee 
up to the time of his death. His period of service 
with the company was twenty-two ^•ea^s, a record 
that has been surpassed by few at Hawk-Eye. 

Those of us who are not old-timers associate him 
for the most part with the elevator serving Buildings 
1 and 2, which he operated without the seml)lance 
of an accident during the last two years of his life. 
It will be a long time before his familiar figure in 
that capacity will fade from our memories, and a 
still longer time before Hawk-Eye will find a more 
loyal and trustworthy worker. 

He leaves two sons, Edward and Joseph, to whom 
we extend our heartfelt sympatliy. 

A T 



HIGH calibre basketball for Kodak 
court fans during the coming season 
was assured at a meeting held October 
14th when the Kodak Basketball League 
was organized. Up until 1920, Kodak 
Park had sported the only quintette in 
the company, but that season found 
Hawk-Eye, Camera Works, and Main 
Office all playing the court game. As a 
consequence, for the coming year Kodak 
Park has decided to abandon its semi-pro 
team and joiii with the other three plants 
in forming a four-team league. 

Election of the following officers assures 
for the Leagiie a high degree of success : 

President H. D. Haight 

Vice-President Herbert Benzoni 

Treasurer Edward F. Goodridge 

Assistant Treasurer and Secretary ..... 

P. R. :\ieinhard 

The tentative plans outlined for the 
League call for a twelve-weeks schedule 
with one game for each team each week. 
The opening games will probably be 
played on Thanksgiving Eve, with a 
double-header on the Kodak Park court 
one night each week thereafter. Dancing 
will follow the second game each week. 

The prospects for a successful league 
are considered bright. Kodak Park has 
chosen George Xeal as manager. He will 
have Brightman, Heaney and Bonhurst 
as a nucleus for his quintet, while the 
Kodak Park Departmental League can 
be depended upon to furnish plenty of 
competition for places on the League 

At Hawk-Eye, "Bill" Roche, an old- 
time star, has been selected to guide the 
destinies of the court artists, and his 
squad includes the following veterans: 
Levine, Johnson, Ligleby and Woodams. 

Camera Works and Kodak Office 
have not as yet appointed their managers. 
At the former plant not a single veteran 
of last year's squad is still with them. 
Welch and Weltzer are showing up well 
in practice. At the Office, "Hash" 
McNeil and "Joe" Stutz are all that 
remain from last year's five, but "^Slose" 
Eggert is counted on to fill one of the 

Everything points toward a successful 
winter for the ba.sket tossers. Watch 
the bulletin boards for announcements, 
and be on the job when the season starts.

SATURDAY, September 24tli, saw 
tlie industrial baseball championship 
of Rochester safely tucked under the 
belts of Doc Craib's Hawk-Eye battlers 
for the second successive year. The 
Hawks found little difficvdty in annexing 
the third and deciding game of the series 
with the Taylor Instrument outfit by a 
10-3 tally. "Noisy" Ray Connell kept 
the Tycos hits well scattered, while his 
mates accounted for a home run, seven 
two-baggers and six singles. Harry 
Moore with a homer with two on, a 

doul)le and a single in four times at bat, 
was tlie clouting star of the day. 

The Hawk-Eye boys are mighty proud 
of their three-year record in the baseball 
world — runners-up in the Kodak League 
in 1919 and Kodak and City Champions 
in both 1920 and 1921. Somebody's go- 
ing to have a hard battle to dislodge the 
lens-makers from their firm seat at the 
top of the baseball ladder. Maybe it 
will be done in 1922 — and then again 
mavbe it won't. 


FOR the first time in twenty-one 
years, the bowling pins of Rochester 
will topple this winter without the aid 
of the Camera Bowling League. Accord- 
ing to the records of the American 
Bowling Congress, the Camera League 
was the oldest in existence and its 
decision to suspend will be received with 
sorrow, not only around the plants, but 
in bowling circles generally. 

The decision was reached at a meeting 
held at Genesee Hall on Friday, October 
14th, the concensus of opinion being that 
the plant Athletic Associations and Re- 
creation Clubs were not now in a 
position to assume the hea\y financial 
burden of a sport which furnishes amuse- 
ment for so few of the members. 

We are sorry indeed to see the Camera 
League lapse even for a single year, 
and trust it will be back stronger than 
ever for the 1922-23 season. 

Meanwhile, why not lay some plans 
for an inter-plant tournament along 
next March or April, after the regular 
plant League schedules have been 
completed? Otherwise, we'll find our- 
selves in an argument as to which plant 
produces the best alley-knights. 

Here's hoping that the old league will 
be in action next year. 


THE much-talked-of game between 
George Stallings' Rochester Inter- 
nationals and a picked team from the 
Kodak league, scheduled for October 
1st, never materialized, the reason being 
that Stallings' men, after their mad 
dash into second place on the last day 
of the season, had had enough of baseball 
for one year. The Rochester team, 
therefore, was disbanded previous to 
the date of the scheduled game with 
the All- Kodaks. 

Charles Beveridge Tutty, Jr., Major 
Domo, and general grand impressario 
for the Kodak forces, scurried wildly 
about and picked Frank Rutz's champion 
Moose to substitute for the Stallings 

"Iron Man" McCormack started the 
game, and pitched four innings of steady 
baseball against the Rutz outfit. Then, 
with the Moose leading 5-4, the Kodak 
directorate benched "Mac" to make 
way for a pinch hitter. The result was 
sad, indeed, for the Moose fell upon the 
curves of Graham, Kivell and Rutan 
for an attack which netted them fourteen 
runs in two sessions. When the game 
was finally called in the seventh, the 
score read 19 to 4 against our boys. 
Requiescat !

THE Avar-time progress of the Eastman 
Kodak Company in aerial photography 
needs no reiteration to Kodak people. The 
designing and construction of Aero came- 
ras; the perfecting of plates and film for 
aerial use; the first forward strides in 
chemical research and manufacture; the 
establishment of the School of Aerial Pho- 
tograi)hy all testify to our war-time 

Subse(|uent developments, however, give 
ample i)roof that the aerial progress of 1917 
and 1918 was but the foreword of a new 
chapter in photographic development. We 
are all familiar with the tests made by 
Captain Albert W. Stevens of the United 
States Air Service in Rochester about a 
year ago. Captain Stevens's work at that 
time, was so exceptional, that his aerial 
map of Rochester was published in the 
National Geographic Magazine and in the 
Xew York Tribune. Readers of the Kodak 
Magazine will recall this mosaic map, to- 
gether with the other aerial photogTaphs 
which api)eared in the ^lay, 19'-21 issue of 
this publication. 

The latest aerial developments of the 
company were tested out in the White 
Mountains diu'ing September and October 
of this year, when Captain Stevens spent 
six weeks in flying over and photographing 
that region. 

Captain Stevens's party included First 
Lieutenant Leigh Wade, United States Air 
Service, Pilot; Captain John Gordon, Jr., 
formerly of the Air Service in the A. E. F., 
and Frank (). Strowger, in charge of Gov- 
ernment and Aerial siij)plies for the East- 
man Kodak Company. This party made 
its headquarters at North (^onway. New 

Hampshire, in the foothills of the White 
Mountains. The equipment included a 
special DeHaviland Plane, equipped for 
photogTaphic work with an Eastman Topo- 
graphical Camera, Model K-1, designed 
especially for mapping and an Eastman 
Aerial Camera, Model K-'2, for oblique 
pictures. Both cameras were a develop- 
ment of the war. Daylight loading roll 
film 75 feet long, and sufficient for one 
hundred exposures, was used. The ]\Iodel 
K-^ camera was equipped with a tweh^e-inch 
Hawk-Eye lens designed especially for 
aerial work. All the illustrations for this 
article were made on Aero Panchromatic 

In addition to making official tests of the 
photographic equipment used, the specific 
errand of the party was the mapping of five 
himdred square miles of the White 
Mountains district for the United States 
Government to obtain information for the 
use of the Geological Survey and the United 
States Forestry Service. 

On his way back. Captain Stevens 
stopped at Boston, and among other things 
made the picture of the buildings of the 
^lassachusetts Institute of Technology, 
shown on page 2. 

The results obtained on this latest expe- 
dition again attracted nation-wide com- 
ment, to such an extent that some of 
Cai)tain Stevens's photographs were pub- 
lished in the Xew York Tribune, Rotogra- 
vuve section, a few weeks ago. 

The quality of these ])ictures suggests 
America's rapid development in aerial pho- 
tography, and its possiliility for peace 



DURING the past decade, a number 
of cults of drugless healing have 
sprung into existence and colleges of 
various sorts dot the country for the pur- 
pose of graduating practioners with 
"degrees" of more or less mythical mean- 
ing and value. 

It is beside the question to argiie as to 
the merits of these various methods of 
healing, but one can at least express a 
doubt as to the ability of any of them to 
cure any and all ailments. 

Admitting for the moment the possibil- 
ity of some of them to reheve certain con- 
ditions or to cure some ailments, it will be 
well to point out the danger that lies 
further on. 

The human body is a very complex and 
delicate piece of machinery and centuries 
of investigation and research still find 
many of its functions more or less of a 

It therefore follows that he who prac- 
tices the art of healing }>y any method 
must, to be successful in the right sense, 
possess a wide knowledge of the human 
structure and a knowledge of what has 
been done by his predecessors. He must 
possess a brain and mind trained to study. 

Realizing this, all Class A medical col- 
leges in the United States demand that a 
student, before entering, must be a high 
school graduate and also have had at least 
two years in college. 

Few, if any, of the institutions teaching 
drugless healing, make such an educa- 
tional foundation a requisite. Quoting 
from the prospectus of one chiroj)ractic 
college: "A practical 'learn by doing' 
course of training such as we teach can be 
grasped by one who has had but an ordi- 
nary common school education." 

To complete a course in any first class 
medical college, requires four years, and in 
many states, a year of hospital experience 
is demanded before graduates can begin 

Quoting from the catalogue of the ■ — - 

Chiropractic Institute: "The day course 

of Chiropractic Institute consists 

of eight forty-five minute periods per day, 
six hours, covering the entire course in 
eighteen school months." 

A resolution adopted by the New York 
State Chiropractic Society, urging the 
passage of a bill for state control of chiro- 
practic admits that "under present con- 
ditions, this leaves chiropractic entirely 
without legal control in this state and per- 
mits incompetent and untrained prac- 
titioners to enter the field of practice." 

In the Journal of the American Medical 
Association of Decem})er !25, 1915, there 
appears a report on three schools of chiro- 
practic in the State of Iowa: "None has a 
library, a hospital, a laboratory that is 
worthy the name, post mortems or capable 
teachers." "Add to this farce, students 
without j>reliminary education beyond the 
mere ability to read and write, and who 
'graduated' after a course of only one year 
in one of these 'colleges, ' and we have an 
individual who is hopelessly handicapped 
for life, one who cannot in any sense be 
considered a safe ad\'iser of the sick." 

An extract from the Bulletin of State 
Medical Boards of July, 1920, contains the 
following: "Leaders of chiropractic deride 
the study of materia medica and chemistry 
and state that they have 'no earthly use' 
for diagnoses. They place themselves 
therefore in direct opposition to Pasteur, 
Koch, Laveran, Flexner, and others whose 
discoveries during the last half century 
have revolutionized the practice of medi- 
cine and saved countless thousands of lives." 

Even with all this, let us admit that per- 
haps there may be some virtue in chiro- 
practic; that possibly the chiropractor can 
relieve some conditions and cure some 

But — here is the crux — ^how are ,>'ou go- 
ing to determine as to whether or not you 
have j)laced yourself in the hands of one 
of intelligence and skill, or in the hands of 
some ignoramus who is only after your 

The great danger lies in being treated 


for one malady, or supposed malady, when 
your real trou])le could only be disclosed 
by a careful and thorough iliagnosis by a 
medical physician, and you continue on 
until you are past medical or any other 
aid, and %\ath your chance for recover^' 

gone. Do not take this chance. If you are 
ill, go to the best physician you can find; 
one whose diplomas stand for knowledge, 
skill and intelligence and not to one whose 
diplomas were granted mostly for the pay- 
ment of a fee. 


THE axerage man does not know what 
a nerve-A\Tecking affair it is to match a 
certain color or shade, unless perhaps his 
wife has sent liim down to the store to get 
three quarters of a yard more of some 
goods — "exactly this shade." 

The exact matching of colors and shades 
has always been more or less of a problem, 
and sometimes a serious one, both to the . 
manufacturer and the consmner, but 
thanks to a recent invention of our Kodak 
Park Research Laboratory, these troubles 
promise soon to be relegated to the past. 

This new device is called the Eastman 
Universal Colorimeter, and it will measure 
the color of liquid and of transparent or 
reflecting solids of every color with equal 
facility. It can be used to measure the 
colors of fabrics, papers, oils, paints inks, 
dyes and dyed materials, colored glass, 
celluloid, etc. 

The device is simple to operate and 
positive as to results, and when the exact 
match is recorded, a numerical scale gives 
the number of this color or shade so that it 

will be possible to reproduce it exactly at 
any future time. 

AVith the Eastman Universal Colori- 
meter in general use, it will only be neces- 
sary to specify the colorimeter number to 
insure a perfect color match. 

All problems that have to do with the 
action of light and color are of interest to 
the Kodak Park Research Laboratory', 
and this device for the accurate measure- 
ment of color is but one outcome of its 
endless series of tests and experiments. 


A Louisiana woman was recently fatally 
l)urned when she overturned the reservoir 
of an oil stove when carrying it from one 
room to another. The accident was caused 
by failure to make sure that the spring 
catch between the lower and upper por- 
tions of the stove was safely sprung. 

A discarded cigarette stub carelessly 
thrown into rubbish, caused a $'■26,000 fire 
in a Kentucky to^\'n.

IT is a source of great personal satisfac- 
tion to me to note the interest taken 
by our employees in the Eastman Sa^'ings 
and Loan Association. 

The fact that a number of employees 
who have been laid off on account of slack- 
ness of work, or are on part time, still main- 
tain their membership, is the best possible 
proof that the value of our association is 

Systematic saving is the basis of future 
prosperity and independence. I saved 
the first money I ever earned (five dollars 
for sawing brackets) and I saved thirty- 
seven dollars out of my first year's earnings 
of three dollars per week, as office boy. 

^\Tien the time came for me to engage in 
business for myself, I had accumulated 
about four thousand dollars out of my 
wages as a clerk and bookkeeper. 

I would not have had the courage to 
leave my position, or perhaps would have 
been hopelessly handicapped, had I not 
saved an amount sufficient to warrant 
such a serious undertaking. 

The best method of systematic saving is 
the planning and carrying out of a personal 
or family budget system. With the 
budget, you can plan your income intelli- 
gently, and at the end of each month and 
year, know exactly where you stand, and 
can put aside a definite amount to be 
saved for some specific purpose. 

Real saving means regularly putting- 
aside a definite amount to meet some of 
•the bigger needs; not the saving for a few 
weeks or months and then spending the 
money for something you could have done 


AX analysis of accidents reported for the 
- period between October 17th and Nov- 
ember 8th, shows a clear record for most 
of our plants. 

Where accidents have occurred, there 
were too many due to slipping, accidents 
which in most cases could liave been pre- 
vented had ordinary precautions been 

The most serious of all is a mnnljer of 
cases of infection due to minor injuries — 
scratches — -which were not reported to our 
Medical Department for attention. 

Failure to report and receive immediate 
medical attention for a seemingly trivial 
accident, frequently leads to serious and 
sometimes fatal consequences. 

An infected hand or foot is no joke; the 
infected part is most painful, sometimes 
agonizingly so, and the infection may 

spread with alarming rapidity and be very 
hard to control or cure. 

Our safety record has been a source of 
pride to us all; let us not destroy it with 
carelessness or thoughtlessness. Look out 
for yourself and for the other fellow, and 
above all, do not neglect the seemingly 
trivial accident. 


If your quarterly statement from the 
Eastman Savings and Loan Association 
shows less money than you think it should, 
don't be alarmed. Watch the bulletins 
for information as to date of last pay-roll 
deduction. On the September 30tli state- 
ments, the last pay-roll deduction credited 
is for week ending September 17th, if em- 
ployed at Kodak Park; for week ending 
September 24th, if employed at any of 
the other plants or the Kodak Office.

IN the days between tlie Centennial and 
the Chicago World's Fair, when a young 
man wanted to go to w^ork, he usually just 
"got a job" somewhere, and with but little 
or no thought as to his particular fitness for 
the job, and how* it would pan out as a 
foundation for his life's work. 

The boss cared little — or notliing — re- 
garding what he did outside of business 
hours, and the instances were exceedingly 
rare where any thought was given by the 
employer as to the systematic education 
and advancement of his working force. It 
was left mostly to chance. 

The young man with serious thought as 
to the future, found })ut few guide posts; 
if he did not happen to fall into the hands 
of someone who could, and w^ould, guide 
and encourage him intelligently, he was 
forced to "gang his ain gait." 

That period nevertheless developed some 
big men, but they won mostly "in spite of" 
instead of "because of." 

Only the feeble-minded sigh for the 
"good old days when every man had an 
opportunity;" the very best days that 

ever were for the young man, or woman, 
beginning a business career are today's 

In the "old days" the young man could 
obtain little, if any, accurate knowledge 
as to how others had achieved success; he 
had to content himself with the biograph- 
ies of celebrities too long defunct to be of 
much practical value, beyond an inspira- 
tional one. 

If he desired to spend his leisure hours 
in study, he had to plan his own course, 
and select his text books haphazard. To be 
sure, there w^ere night schools but, outside 
of the big centers, they taught only the 
"three R's,"or bookkeeping and penman- 
ship. Today all this is changed. Business 
organizations realize that they have an 
actual investment in their employees, and 
that the best future executives are the 
young men trained within the organization. 

In the "good old days," there were but 
few periodicals, heavy in tone and high in 
price; today, there are a multitude of 
periodicals, sold at a price within the reach 
of modest incomes, or available at all 
public reading rooms and libraries. In 
these can be found many timely articles 
written by big business men, and intelli- 
gent and interesting discussion on all 
topics of the day. 

Night schools abound, not only for 
general education, but for the acquiring of 
all sorts of scientific and technical knowl- 
edge. There are also many excellent cor- 
respondence courses, covering an ex- 
tremely wide range — and all these available 
for an exceedingly modest outlay, results 

Free lectures on a wide variety of inter- 
esting topics, are given most every even- 
ing, and many concerts of a high order 
may be heard for a small price. 

A thousand opportunities exist for the 
young man today, to one in the "seventies " 
and "eighties." 

The trained man skims the cream, of 
course, but if you do not become a trained 
man, it is your own fault. 



By The Editor 

YOU pick up a copy of the Kodak 
Magazine and you read it through 
in anywhere from thirty minutes to an 
hour, according to how intent you are 
in absorbing its words of wisdom. 

Possibly you become interested in 
just how a magazine is put together, 
and the various processes it undergoes 
before it reaches you. 

First of all, a magazine or any tj^pe 
of publication must have a real purpose, 
and serve that purpose acceptably if it 
is to live. 

The purpose having been discovered, 
a definite policy for conducting it must 
be established, and this policy lived up 
to, with, of course, such changes as 
changing conditions warrant. 

Next comes the selecting of the editor 
and his staff. Now almost anyone can 
be an editor, but a great deal of care 
must be exercised in the selection of the 
assistant editors and the reportorial 
staff, for they are the ones who do all 
the real work, the chief editor only 
having to be responsible for what they 
do; so you see he has a pretty soft time 
of it. 

In the case of the Kodak Magazine 
the editor has two associate editors, who 
are in the same office with him; there is 
also an assistant editor for each one of 
the Rochester plants, and one for the 
Main Office as you know. 

Each assistant editor has a corps of 
reporters covering the different depart- 
ments in his plant, who collect the various 
items of interest, personal and otherwise, 
and turn them in to him; he in turn 
scrutinizes them carefully for any hidden 
"stingers," as the purpose of the maga- 
zine is to make friends; and to be sure 
that all the statements are true, and 
that the various items arc timely and 
of interest to the readers. 

The assistant editors receive the items 
from their reporters in all sorts of shai)es. 

wTitten on scraps of paper, some in 
pencil, some in ink, and sometimes^ 
Oh, Joy! neatly type^Titten. 

The assistant editors wade through 
all this material, have it all typewritten, 
approved by the plant manager, and 
then send it in to the editor. 

The editor and his associates go carefully 
over all matter submitted, decide as to 
the number and size of the illustrations 
which accompany the articles, and then 
the "copy" is ready for the printer and 
the engraver. 

Each issue of the Kodak Magazine 
is printed from brand new type, which 
is melted up as soon as the issue is 
complete. This is made possible by 
the use of a wonderful machine called 
the "Monotype," which would require 
a story itself to describe. 

The printers set this type in column 
widths, and when set it is returned to 
the associate editors, together with the 
original "copy." They compare all this 
type matter with the original copy, and 
correct any errors made by the printer, 
which, thanks to excellent proofreading, 
in our case are but few. 

The photographs come to us in all 
sizes from a forty-inch "Cirkut," down to 
a "Vest Pocket," or even smaller. We 
decide as to what size we wish them 
reproduced, by means of the half-tone 
process, and the size is marked on the 
print ; f hen they are sent to our engraving 
department. Here the prints are jilaccd 
on the copy board of a huge photo- 
engraving camera, focused down to the 
size required, and then ])hotographed 
through a finely ruled glass screen; the 
screen employed for plates in the Kodak 
Magazineis ruled, each way, one Imndred 
and fifty lines to the inch. 

After the negatives are made they are 
printed upon heavy sheets of copper; 
the copper is coated with a sensitive 
solution, which resists an acid bath 
wherever the liuht has acted. 



After the copper plate has been exposed 
it is subjected to this acid bath, whicli 
eats away the metal where the liglit has 
not affected it. 

The finely ruled screen cuts up the 
picture into a series of fine dots as you 
can readily see by exaniininii any one 
of the illustrations with a reading glass. 
These dots afford a printing surface. 

You can close your eyes and rub your 
hand over the surface of a completed 
half-tone ])late ami fail to detect any 
difference in any part of its surface; 
yet, in the hands of a good printer, a 
block should yield at least fifty thousand 
good impressions. 

After the half-tone plates are made, 
they are tacked upon wooden blocks to 
make them exactly "type high," and a 
proof is pulled from each; then all the 
cuts, as they are called, together with the 
"proofs" are sent to the editorial office. 

When all the type matter has been 
received from the printer, and all the 
illustration proofs are in from the 
engraver, the associate editors "make 
up" the magazine. They have sheets of 
paper ruled exactly the height of each 
page in the magazine; they then sort 
out the long "galley proofs" as they are 

called, selects the proofs of the illustra- 
tions that go with them, and then paste 
them on the sheets exactly in the position 
they wish them to appear in the magazine; 
when this is complete, it is called the 
"diunmy," which then goes to the printer. 

The printer then takes the type matter 
which is ready in long racks, and the 
half-tone blocks, and arranges them 
according to the dummy. 

When this has been done the pages 
are locked in forms and a proof impression 
is made. 

These pages, which when assembled 
are called the "make up," are then 
returned to the editor for corrections 
and his mark of final approval, after 
which the "make up" is returned to the 
printer for the press run; then the 
editor and his associates emit a big 
"Whoosh!" of relief. 

You may have an alert and experienced 
editor, a first class printer and engraver, 
but a \'ery great deal of the success of a 
magazine such as ours depends upon 
the plant editors and their reporters, 
as they supply the "life blood." (May 
the editor be pardoned if he suggests 
that the plant editors and reporters read 
this last paragraph again.) 


A\omig man, not far beyond the stage 
when a person is first allowed to vote, 
fumbling carelessly in his pocket, dropjjed 
a one-cent piece on a Main Street sidewalk 
the other day. He looked down, noticed 
its small denomination, and started to 
walk away. 

" You've just dropped a cent, " remarked 
an older man, touching him on the shoulder. 
But the younger one only smiled rather 
aloofly and kept on. The errant coin 
found its w^ay into the pocket of the one 
who realized that one himdred cents make 
one dollar. 

We once knew an executive who re- 
mained in his company's large offices after 
closing time, and personally turned out 
the electric lights that were burning use- 

lessly, in an effort to save a few cents. It 
was a habit of his to conserve — one reason 
why, he, an office boy twenty years ago, 
is now one of his company's leaders. Yet, 
because of his carefulness, the saving of 
a few cents a day in electric current soon 
grew into dollars. 

We all, like the young man who dropped 
the cent, have a certain degree of indiffer- 
ence to waste, especially of the little things 
that must be regarded. A pencil put in 
the pocket, taken home and lost, a light 
left burning uselessly, waste of materials 
which go to make up our products — and 
such disregard for care in conserving is 
most untimely. Waste and progress can- 
not exist together. The thing to do is to 
"pick up the cent." 





"The Old (iiiard will be here," said one of the 
bulletins announcing' the Hallowe'en "shindig." 
And the Old Guard was there in foree — to such an 
extent that they would proliably have had their 
party even if it hadn't ])een accompanied by the 
entertainment, and by dancing, pedro, eats, fancy 
costumes and the splendid decorations. It was 
the first big event since the picnic and the oppor- 
tunity to "get together" was fully utilized. 

and apples, and to the mountains of delicious fried 
cakes which Mrs. Freeman and Mrs. Fiat had 

Next the youngsters divided their time between 
the "band" and the candy booth, where "Bill" 
Haeusel and Herman Rexer worked in shifts. 
Many of the adults succumbed to the lure of the 
Grohs' music in the dance hall, while others sought 
the more secluded card tables. There was a line. 


Fortune Teller 

"Bob " Bretiien, ventriloquist extraordinary 
of Kodak Park, headed the entertainment program 
in an act that doubled up the adults in their chairs 
and had the "kiddies" gurgling with joy. Then 
Miss Estelle La Reve sang some charming songs. 
She was followed by Marion Kurtz, and Xaomi 
HofT in a series of j)leasing dances. They were 
accompanied by ^^iss Dulcic Johnston at the piano. 
The fourth and final number consisted of two 
quartet selections, sung bv "Svd" Clarke, Frank 
Fink, "Bill" Eyer and "Bob" Meinhard. 

An annoimcement lliat iiinted of refreshments 
precipitated a stampede in the direction of the 
lunch room, where every one did justice to the cider

mostly men, waiting to learn their fate from Mar- 
garet Duske in the fair fortune-teller's tepee. All 
of us fell over one another to get a glimpse of ".\rt'' 
Rapp's beautiful illiuuinated |)anel. 

The costumes of >[r. and Mrs. Frank Newman 
attracted universal attention. The Ereth sisters 
were more than disguised as townies — they were 
transformed — and they weren't recognizable even 
without their masks. The Earl sisters in their 
fluffy chiffons, I>ois Kurtz in her ",soup-and-fish" 
and high hat, and a drove of clowns all lent an 
appropriate spirit of revelry to the party. 

As everyone knows, "Billy" Wilson was general 
chairman of the atlair, and it was largely due to 
her efforts, co-ordinating the work of the various 



committees, that it was so successful. The decora- 
tions were in charge of "Art" Rapp, with Margaret 
Duske, Rose Taylert, Leigliton Young and "Cliff" 
Johnson assisting him. Frank Fink was Chairman 
of the Entertainment Committee, with "Bill" 
Ever and Hilda Specht as co-workers. "Johnnie" 
Vass, as chairman of the Ticket Committee, took 
care of the financial success of the party. His 
committee consisted of Elizabeth Meerdink, Ruth 
Kurtz, Magdalen Hettel, Loretta Ereth, Sydney 
Leggatt and William Schlegel. In the matter of 

eats the crowd was at the mercy of "Bob" Mein- 
hard, who was aided by George Brennan, "Benny" 
Levine, "Red" Sondheim, "Doc" Craib, "Mart" 
Tipple and "Bob" Lehmann. 

Alice Gears and "Syd" Leggatt did yeoman 
service in the check room. "Syd" was going to 
stay "just a minute" but instead of that, he was 
one of the last to leave. Perhaps the company 
behind the counter was the cause of liis serving so 

Wilbur Woodams took care of the publicity.

Hawk-Eye had a short but impressive ceremony 
on Armistice Day. A signal was soimded at 11:40, 
whereupon everyone filed into the men's dining 
room, which had been decorated for the occasion. 
After the singing of "America the Beautiful," 
Mr. Higgins introduced Mr. John Wolfe, executive 
pastor of Brick Church, who gave an inspiring 
talk on the significance of the anniversary. At 
exactly two minutes of twelve he brought his 
address to a close and while the gathering stood 
with bowed heads, a bugler, stationed in the corridor, 
sounded taps. The singing of "My Country, 'Tis 
of Thee" concluded the memorial ser\'ice. 

The mere fact that November 8th was Election 
Day sank into insignificance when we learned that 
Lucy Tate was at the same time celebrating her 
birthday. Mr. and Mrs. Van Vean of ii5 .\ venue 
D surprised her with a party. 


Production Dspartment 


The first basketball practice, held on October 
:28th, was highly successful except for the fact that 
there wasn't any ball with which to play. "Cliff" 
Johnson has tried to shift the blame but is generally 
blamed for the debacle. In any event that first 
practice without a ball was just as bad as a now- 
famous sausage roast without sausage. 


"Syd" Leggatt has changed his mind about the 
advantages of living near one's work. One of the 
Diffusion Disk workers dashed across the street and 
pulled him out of bed at three in the morning a short 
time ago, to tell him that something had gone 
wrong with the machinery. "Syd's" comments 
are not recorded. 

Mrs. E. R. Kent, mother of Mrs. May Perry, 
of the Filter Department, died on October 17th. 
We offer our sincere sympathy. 



During tlie months of October and November, 
Hawk-Eye suggestions almost reached the vanishing 
point. Eitlier we think that during periods Hke 
the present there are no ideas roaming around loose, 
or else we believe that this is not a good time to 
submit the thoughts that have occurred to us. 
Both ideas are WTong. There are as many unhar- 
nessed ideas today as there are imcaught fish in the 
sea. This is the time to harness tliose ideas, not 
only because the company and you can make 
particularly good use of their returns, but because 
it should be easier to pick the good ones. The 
reason for this is, that, with a high peak of 
production behind us, we have a better opportunity 
to think about refinements in our products, cost 
reductions and improvements in general. 

Perhaps we would use the Suggestion System 
more extensively if we realized more fully what a 
powerful tool it offers us to help ourselves and our 
fellows. Consider for a moment the work which 
you are doing. Are we putting unnecessarily 
expensive materials into the product.^ Are we 
using parts that could be simplified or entirely 
eliminated.^ Are we doing operations by hand 
that could be performed just as well by a machine? 

Tell us about it, so that we may manufacture the 
product at a lower cost and sell it more universally, 
creating more work for yourself and for all of us. 
Use the tool that is offered you. 

Is your physical welfare or that of a fellow worker 
jeopardized by a dangerous condition that has been 
overlooked.^ Visit the suggestion box again. 
Safety work is usually carried on from humani- 
tarian motives, and rightly so, but, regarded from 
the \-iewpoint of production, accidents are just as 
bad as extravagant manufacturing methods. They 
mean a loss to the company, perhaps the permanent 
loss of a valuable workman. Translated into 
figures they mean higher costs, fewer sales, and less 
work for all of us. 

All of this points to the fact that a suggestion 
begets a greater monetary return than is indicated 
by the initial award. It means the betterment of 
some condition that is inevitably translated into a 
saving and this saving will eventually rebound to 
our benefit. 

Some ideas have recently been put into operation 
that will mean money in all our pockets. How 
about your ideas.^ 


The Pressed Glass Inspecting Department 
suffered from a terrible explosion a few weeks ago. 
"Benny" Wiemer, closing a wet umbrella in the 
adjoining corridor, unintentionally caused a drop of 
water to hop the partition and it came to rest, 
though not for long, on one of the high-power 
inspecting lamps. Both Ella Wienecke and Marie 
Leimberger hit high C when the big Mazda let go. 
No, there were no casualties. 


All of us are proud of the appearance of our plant 
and especially of the corridors in Building 6. which 
Ralph Phillips recently ornamented with a fresh 
coat of paint. We have reason to be proud because 
we have co-operated to keep our walls clean and 
neat, and we can keep them so in the future only by 
continuing that co-operation. 

Thomas Tremer has returned to the Maintenance 
and Construction Department, after an absence of 
seven weeks.

Our) first glance as we entered the Dance Hall 
convinced us that the Bal Masque, the getaway 
event of the Annual Series of K. P. A. A. dances 
was an assured success. The entire auditorium from 
ceiling to floor was a mass of beautiful color, bearing 
out the prophecy of something new and novel in the 
way of decorations. .Vlong the south wall, were the 
boxes, beautifully furnished with rugs, davenports, 
comfortable chairs, tables and lamps making them 
especially attractive. 

There is one thing we always enjoy and that is a 
Paul Jones. When this popular old-fashioned dance 
was over, we felt acquainted with everybody and 
the evening was made. 

At last it was time for the Grand ^March, and, as 
hmidreds of persons in every conceivable type of 
costume marched past, we ceased to envy the 
judges their comfortable seats on the platform. 
Anna Sharp, of the Finished Film Department was 
chosen Queen. As the lights were extinguished, a 
spotlight was played on the stage at the further end 
of the hall, and, as the curtain was drawn, the 
throne was sho\\n, on a raised platform behind a 
beautiful fountain and flower display. Six charm- 
ing little pages. Gladys Horton, Ruth Page, 
Mildred DeHond, Ethel Horton, Clara Luce and 
Etta Benjamin escorted the Queen to the throne, 
where after being cro-mied with due ceremony, she 
presented to each of the other winners their prizes. 
The entertainment was completed by an exibition 
of dancing by the pupils of Miss Lorraine Abert. 

Then someone spied the refreshment sign, and, 
going downstairs, we fortified ourselves for the 
remaining dance numbers, with cider, doughnuts, 
crackers, cheese and apples, which j)ut the final 
touch to a most enjoyable evening. One pleasing 
feature was the invitation to the trick workers to 
partake of the refreshments with the compliments of 
the Conmiittee; a large number of them accepted 
the invitation. 

We are more than indebted to the people from 
outside, who contributed to the party. We thank 
John Keller for the beautiful fountain used with 
such good effect on the stage, amd also Charles 
Xachman and Carol McConnell for the loan of the 
furniture used in the boxes. 

We wish to congratulate General Ciiairman Dr. 
B. J. Slater, Chairman Arthur Williams, and the 
Committee who gave us such a pleasant time, and 
we'll be on hand for the next dance without question. 

Following are the winners of the different prizes : — 
Most elaborate costume for women: First — Anna 
Sharp, Second — Kate Xelson. Most elaborate 

costume for men: First — George Hill, Second — 
Eric Collins. Most original costume for women:

couple present: First — Anna Remillard and Ruth 
Tanguay. Most comical couple present: First — 
Hazel Patchen and Claire Erbe, Second — ^lartha 
Huwald and Matilda Bahr. 

The Committee in charge consisted of Mrs. 
Thompson, Dorothy Meyers. Florence Doescher, 
Cora Lintz, Mildred Grow. Xaomi Huetter, Jack 
Brightman. William Doane. J. S. Kirchgessner, Jane 
Fulton, Roy Schueler, Frances Fox. Mae Goehry,

McCann, Esther Furlong, R. A. Weber, Lee Mac- 
Farland, Melissa Gaylord, and Katherine Waldron. 


The Kodak Park girls' basketball team, local 
champions for 19!20-21, is ready and anxious for 
the opening game of this season. Coach Thompson 
held the first practice in September, in anticipation 
of an early start, but to date, it has been impossible 
to arrange a game with any of the better teams, 
until after the first of the New Year. The reputa- 
tion of the Park lassies has spread far, and it is 
easily seen v.hy other managers are reluctant to 
take a chance with our girls until they have attained 
mid-season form. An opportunity will be given a 
few of the best industrial girls teams of the city to 
arrange for dates, although the majority of the 
games will in all probability be with out-of-town 
"quints." As defenders of their title, Kodak will 
no doubt play the most likely of the other local 
teams at the end of the season for the 19'-2l-'2!2 

Last season, eighteen games were played, sixteen 
resulting in wins for the Park, the only outfit to 
beat them, being the famous Clark-Munies of 
Cleveland, Ohio, world's championship girls' team. 
Among the most important victories were those 
over the "Shredded Wheats" of Niagara Falls, and 
the Douglas Girls of Pittsburg. The slogan of the 
team this season is "Beat the Munies," and this, 
they expect to accomplish, if satisfactory arrange- 
ments can be made for a game. 

Marguerite Ellis is again managing the girls' team 
and those interested in booking games are advised 
to get in touch with her, in care of the K. P. A. A.

On Monday morning, November 7th, Arthur 
Williams, formerly of the Stores Department, Build- 
ing 49, assumed the duties of Supervisor of Recrea- 
tion and Athletics of the Kodak Park Athletic Asso- 
ciation at Building '28. Mr. Williams had been 
with the Stores Department for about two years, 
and has made many friends at Kodak Park. 

"Art" has the ambition to make the Kodak Park 
Athletic Association the most popular industrial 
organization in the country. He wants your help 
and cooperation. Let's get behind him, everyone 
of us. and help make a winter we'll all enjoy. If 
you aren't already acquainted with him. drop in and 
see how glad he will be to meet vou.

Although, as announced in the November issue 
of the Kodak- Magazine, the Park is not to be rep- 
resented by a team in the semi-pro basketball 
world this season, it does not mean that we will not 
have basketball. The newly-organized Kodak 
League includes the four larger Eastman divisions, 
and Kodak Park has a good representative team in 
the field. 

George Neal, of the Tool Room, has been ap- 
pointed Manager for this season, and is attending 
to the business end of the games for the Park. At 
present, the following men have been selected as 
regulars: Jack Brightman, Harold Stephenson, 
William Scanlon, Elwood Bonhurst. Charles Bright- 
man. Henry McCarthy and Garth Rockcastle. Jack 
Brightman has been a member of the Kodak Park 
team for a number of years, and is considered one of 
the fastest forwards in the city. The other players 
have all had more or less experience, and can be 
depended upon to make the other teams in the 
League hustle. 


New Manager of Recreational and Athletic .Activities 
for K. P. A. A. 

Xovember 11, 1921. 
Dear Friends: 

In assuming the duties of Manager of Recreational 
and Athletic activities of the Kodak Park Athletic As- 
sociatioti, I have but one ambition, to make the Asso- 
ciation such, that every man and woman at Kodak 
Park icill be proud to be a member of it. 

Realizing that very little can be accomplished by or 
as an individual, I take this opportunity of soliciting 
your co-operation and help. 

A little time will be needed to accomplish things 
which are anticipated. Constructive critcism is de- 
sired and will be welcomed. 

I ask again for your co-operation, and assure you 
that I atn at all times at your service. 
Sincerely yours, 

Arthur E. Williams. 


The second monthly Dinner Meeting of the 
Kodak Park Foremen's Club was unusually well 
attended and fully as enjoyable as the October 
event. This was due, aside from the excellent 
"feed," to the interesting talk given by Captain 
Grant Williams. Captain Williams, organizer of 
the " Bureau of Missing Persons, " and formerly head 
of one of the famous "Special Squads," of the New 
York Police Department, gave as the subject of his 
address, "Amazing Identification," citing the great 
value of the "finger print," as a means of positively 
establishing a person's identity. The members 
reluctantly allowed the speaker to depart after 
talking nearly two hours. 

During the dinner. "Art" Taylor's orchestra 
rendered several excellent instrumental numbers 
and Ferre Marzlufl^ and George Frank sang a 
number of pleasing duets, assisted by George 
Englehardt at the piano. 

The next meeting will be held in December. 



Playing the brand of football for which Kodak 
Park is justly famous, our team on Sunday, Novem- 
ber 6th, met and defeated the MacXaughton 
Rangers, by the one-sided score of 8 to 1. By reason 
of this victory, we went into first place in the 
Rochester and District Soccer League. 

Playing ofl" of the National Cup games delayed 
the R. & D. schedule several weeks, and the first 
contest was staged on October 30th, nearly a month 
late. At the opening of the fall series, Kodak Park 
was in second place. While we were defeating the 
Celtics on the above date, the ]\Iac"s also won, 
which placed the Rangers ahead by a slight margin. 
The decisive \'ictory for Kodak, when these two 
teams met, demonstrated that the Park team, com- 
posed of the youngest players in the League, has 
the makings of a championship eleven. 

Individually, there is little room for a choice in 
picking any particular star or stars. Every position, 
despite the fact that Kodak Park was supposed to 
be badly crippled through the loss of several good 

men, is filled by able players. Perhaps, a word as to 
the ability of the Park forwards would not be out 
of place at this time. Such men as Brightman 
Fratter, Foster, McKinley and Mears, playing 
together, are almost impossible to stop. Fast as 
lightning, and sure of foot, their ability to count 
when scores are needed, is a strong factor in the 
team's success. 

Three more games are scheduled in the fall series. 
The Moose, Holland A. C. and Camera Works will 
be played within the next month, and with the 
Kodak team in its present condition, the trophy 
begins to look like a positive fact. 

The new Kodak Park Soccer Field was opened for 
the Celtic game on October 30th, and the fact that, 
Kodak was for the first time on its home grounds 
may have had something to do with its 3—0 victory 
over League leaders. The field is situated on the 
Ridge Road, just a step west of the Dewey Avenue

The first meeting of the Kodak Park Camera 
Club for the season of 19!21-2'-2 was held in Building 
28, on Wednesday evening, November Kitli. 

Supper was served to about one himdred members 
of the Club in the second floor cafeteria. Following 
this, F. W. Brehm, President of the Camera Works 
Camera Club, gave a very interesting illustrated 
lecture, "A Trip Through Bonnie Scotland."' 

The program of activity for the coming months is 
being prepared by a Committee appointed by Presi- 
dent Tuttle, and a busy season is promised. The 
"Supper and Lecture" plan inaugurated last winter 
proved very popular, and will probably be followed 
out again all this year. The meetings are not 
limited to members, the privilege of inviting a 
friend having been extended to all. 

All are urged to attend the next event to be given 
on Wednesday, December 14th, John L Crabtree 
will address the members on this occasion, his sub- 
ject being: "How to Take Snap-Shots." 

On Sunday, November 20th, about thirty mem- 
bers took a hike to Durand Eastman Park. 

Plans are underway for the Annual Banquet and 
Dance to be held on Wednesday, January 11th, 1922. 
At time, officers for 1922 will be elected. 



In the K. P. A. A. Bowling League, the Senecas 
are winning regularly, and are considered by many, 
as the strongest team in the League. The other 
teams seem to have their share of hard luck regularly 
and aside from the Ponies and Headlights, are break- 
ing about even on the games rolled. 

In the Yard League, the teams are pretty well 
divided with the Steel Shed still in the lead. The 
Kodee League composed of employees of Trick No. 3 
of the Emulsion Coating Department is having a 
good time all by itself. Four teams are entered. 


On Wednesday, October 19th, Hallett Saulsman. 
one of the best-known and most popular of the 
younger men at Kodak Park, died after an illness of 
less than three weeks. 


"Sauly" was taken ill with tonsilitis while on his 
vacation, and complications developed, which caused 
his untimely death. 

Entering the employ of the company on No- 
vember 19,1912, he began work in the Industrial 
Laboratory, where he remained until July 6. 1920. 
He was then transferred to the Camera Works to do 
Research and Service work. 

His host of friends unite in expressing deep 
sympathy to Mrs. Saulsman and other surviving 

Two of the girls in the E. & M. Office, have re- 
ceived diamond rings. Loretta Weitz from Francis

rade. The girls' costumes were unusually clever 
and there was "something doing" every minute' 




The annual Dinner and Entertainment of the 
Noon-Hour baseball players and fans was held on 
Thursday evening, November '•2d, about sixty-five 
persons attending. The affair was a complete 
success. An excellent dinner was served. Willis's 
Synthetic Orchestra furnished very ])leasing music 
during the dinner, and Horace Robinson led the 
singing. The guests of honor were James H. Haste, 
Manager of Kodak Park Works; and D. E. Reid, 
President of the K. P. A. A. "Father" John 
Shepherd, Toastmaster, in his opening remarks, 
expressed regret over the absenceof Harry Hastings, 
the most loyal of all the supporters of the Noon- 
Hour League. Three hearty cheers were given for 
Mr. Hastings. 

In making the statement that the season of 19'-21 
had been the most successful of any, since the League 
was first organized fourteen years ago, Mr. Shepherd 
referred to the attendance, which had averaged 
about six hundred persons at each game. After 
reviewing the events of the sea.son, a vote of thanks 
was extended to James Ward and John Manhold, 

who had acted as umpires during the season, and to Laura Connaughton, who faithfully attended 
to the sounding of the bell, designating the time 
limit of the same each noon. 

A. E. Metzdorf, of the Y. M. C. A., was the 

principal speaker of the evening, and distributed 
gifts to about twenty of the players and fans, among 
these being a little reminder of approaching old age 
to "Rip" Renzoni. and to Walter Fox, a jar of his 
favorite jam. The members of the Deuces team, 
and the umpires were presented with Eversharp 
pencils by the Association. 

Mr. Haste and Dr. Reid spoke a few words of 
appreciation to the players. Dr. Reid being inter- 
rupted by an unscheduled demonstration of the 
activity of Du Pont Field powder as a cigarette 
ingredient by "Pop-up Pete" Delice. 

Toastmaster Shepherd presented the silver cup 
to the winners, who in turn gave it to their loyal 
and hard-working manager, Harvey Shannon, in 
appreciation of his efforts during the season. 


The many friends and business associates of 
Edwin Haskin, were sorely grieved to learn of his 
sudden death on Monday. October 17th, after an 
illness of onlv a few da vs. 


Mr. Haskin had Ijcen with the Eastman Kodak 
Company for almost five years. For a time, he 
was connected with tiie Main Office, but was later 
transferred to the Box Department as Assistant to 
the Superintendent. 

Besides his widow, Mr. Haskin leaves two sons. 

Mr Haskin is mourned by all, for we learned to 
appreciate him for his gentlemanly character. 

The following recent marriages will be of interest 
to Kodak Park people: 

Olive Simmonds. of the Film Order Office, and 
Leo Gertin. 

Gertrude Alexander, of the Film Packing Depart- 
ment, and John Charcola. 

Helen Schenck, of the Finished Film Office and 
Joseph Phillips. 


Considerable interest is being manifested by 
quite a few of the employees of Kodak Park in the 
newly-formed " Hobliy Club. " The first announce- 
ment relative to this activity was made in the 
November Magcaine, and invited per.sons who 
might be interested to .send their names to Howard 
Carey, Building 34, who is serving as Secretary 
pro tem. Already there are about twenty, who 
have signed up. 

The object is to get together those interested in 
stamp collections, coins, curios, china, minerals, etc., 
to promote trading and buying. It is planned to 
have the Hobby Club exhibit in connection with the 
Fur and Feather Club show to be held in the 
Assembly Hall, December 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th. 

Why not become a member.^ Send your name to 
Mr. Carev, and vou will receive full information. 

The Emulsion Coating Department extends its 
sincerest sympathy to Mortimer P. Thomas, whose 
father died October 19th; to James H. Boekhout, 
whose son died October '21st; and to George Ashley, 
whose wife died October !26th. 

We extend to Esther Furlong, of the Purchasing 
Department, our sincere sympathy upon the death 
of her Mother, which occurred on Friday, November 

Frank Meskill. of the D. O. P. Coating Depart- 
ment, is now comfortably settled in his new home on 
Lewiston Avenue, and all his friends are assured of a 
hearty welcome if they will call upon him. Frank 
is taking considerable pride in his new chicken house, 
and makes it a point to show it to everyone who 

One of the most attractive weddings of the season 
took place at the Lakeside Presbyterian Church, on 
October 27th, when Gladys Vollick, of the E. & M. 
Office, was married to Harold Christy. The bride 
was very popular at Kodak Park, and will be greatl\' 
missed bv her manv friends.

On a recent Saturday afternoon seventy members 
of the Premo Club and wives, luisbands, or sweet- 
hearts, motored to East ^Vlaplewood where, for tlie 
second time this year, the Club held a dinner 
followed by games and contests. 

During the progress of the meal two of our 
honorary members, George T. Roche and Clarence 
H. Harper, of the Folmer-Century Works, were 
introduced and responded to their greeting with a 
smile and vim which made us wish they were active 
members. As good mixers they cannot be beaten. 
The dinner was interspersed with other features, 
not the least of whicli was Jack May's several 
monologues, whicli would "getimby" behind the 

The following games were held after dinner: 

Three-legged race for girls, won by Blanche 
Erickson and Sybil Smith. 

Three-legged race for men. won by George Texter 
and Ralph Hutchings. 

Find Me Contest, won by Sybil Smith. 
Cigarette-smoking contest, won by George Texter. 
Walking contest for ladies and gents, won by 
George Texter. 

Backward race, mixed, won by Dean Wadswortli. 
first; Walter \nn Sanford, second. 

The sports were brought to a close with a mixed 
baseball game, with the following players: L. C. 
Wheeler, captain; George Texter, Anna Kehoe, 
Clarence H. Harper, Blanche Erickson, Walter 
Martin, Mrs. Frank C. Sherman, George Franklin. 
John Roach, and Dean Wadswortli. They were 
opposed by Walter ^'an Sanford, captain; Charles 
Gaucli, Elizabeth Franklin, John Blekkenk, Sybil 
Smith, Liiella Wright, (leorge Rake, Homer Ran- 
som, George T. Roche, and Ray Cooper. Jack 
May staged his greatest vaudeville act in umpiring 
the game. The ^^'heeler team won the well-played 
contest, with a score of 6 to 5. The prinicpal 
features were Luella Wright's run, the only one to 
be made by a girl, and the home run by L. C. 

.\rrangements were in the hands of the following 
committees : 

Dinner Arrangements — William Gerstner, Walter 
Van Sanford, J. H. Johnson. 

Sports and Prizes — Irene Wilt, George Franklin. 
John Stanton, J. H. ^IcKenny, Homer Ransom. 
William Halpin. 

Transportation — Walter Martin. 


Some of the boys of the Works, with their wives, 
held a Hallowe'en "racket" at the home of Ralph 
Hutchings. Homer Ransom, Henry Winter and 
Walter Van Sanford provided the entertainment of 
the evening. Mrs. Brooks and Mrs. Hutchings 
saw that there were no idle moments for the guests 
as many old and new Hallowe'en games were played, 
after which refreshments were served. 

Car'. Kraftschik of the Production Department, 
who underwent an operation at the Rochester 
General Hospital, is rapidly recovering. AVe will 
lie glad to see him back again. 

It is important that all eniployees who are laid 
off and liave cliangcd tlioir addresses notify the 
employment department of such changes as we 
have had several letters returned to us marked 
"Moved. Present address unknown."

"Why so gloomy, Dick?" asked Jack, as the two 
chums were going to school one morning just before 
Christmas vacation. 

"Aw, shucks!" answered Dick, "Dad just sent a 
letter home, saying that he wouldn't be able to come 
home for Christmas this year; he wrote that he 
would send some money to our housekeeper to get 
us some stviff, but she doesn't know what a fellow 
wants — any more than a — than a kangaroo would.'' 
"Tough luck," sympathized Jack. "It must be 
fierce not to get a few of the things you've been 
wanting all year." 

"It isn't for me alone," said Dick, "but for Bud, 
my kid brother. He's only five, and as he got 
slipped up on the things he wanted last year, he 
expects to get twice as much this year. Look at 
the letter he wants me to send to Santa Clans." 

Dick took from his pocket a smudgy piece of 
paper and handed it to Jack. This is what he 

"Dere Sandyclaus i am riteing you this leter 
so you wont give me the rong things this yere 
i ast you for a slay last yere and you sent me 
a pare of stockings i wanted sum tin sogers

"Yours trooly Bud." 

"Sure is too bad," said Jack, handing back the 
letter. "W'hat you going to do about the letter to 
Santa .^" 

"I think I'll send it to Dad," answered Dick. 
"Perhaps he'll come home, anyway, when he sees 
how Bud feels." 

A few days later Mr. Smith opened a letter 
directed to Santa Claus. After reading it over 
.several times, he got out a time table and studied it. 
Mr. Smith arrived home the day before Christmas 
loaded with bundles that Dick helped to hide. 

Christmas Day, Bud was delighted to find that 
the Christmas tree was not adorned with shoes and 
stockings, etc., but just the presents he'd longed

A little girl was seen sitting in the corner of the 
nursery in the Orphan A.sylum. She was weeping 
bitterly and one might think her little heart would 

Presently the nurse came in. She possessed a 
very disagreeable disposition. As she entered the 
room and heard Mary crying, she said: "You silly 
child, what are you crying for.^" 

Mary did not answer. 

"Answer me," she said. "What is the matter 
with you.^" 

"I — I — ," choked Mary, "I was just thinking 
that I won't have a nice Christmas like other little 
children will have Saturday." 

"Ohf " said the nurse, "So you don't think we have 
a nice Christmas here, do you.^ Well, just for that 
you will not have as much as the other children." 

Even though Mary was only nine years old, she 
realized that .she did not have all the nice things 
that she was used to having when she lived with her 
own mother and father. 

The nurse left the room but returned shortly 
with a man. He looked over the crowd of children 
and finally fixed his eyes on a little girl with golden 
curly hair. It was Mary. He came toward her, 
but after a moment walked to the other side of the 
room and took a child of seven years old. Mary 
had hoped that he would take her, but now she felt 
worse than ever. 

In a few minutes, however, she was happy for 
the first time since she had been at the asylum. 
She had been taken by a lady and her husband, and 
later was adopted. She was riding home with a 
very motherly woman. IVIary was shown many 
attractive things when they reached home, and 
realized that she was once more in a real home. 

The next day Mary was taken shopping with her 
new mother and daddy, Mr. and Mrs. Loomis. 
They had a very interesting time. 

The following day was Christmas, and I will 
leave it for vou to decide what kind of a time she 


The Eastman Kodak Company has for many 
years realized the value of ideas, and that no one 
can better suggest methods of improvement than 
the employees who are doing the actual work. 
Hundreds of suggestions have been received from 
employees, but there are still many who have not 
gotten into the game, and it is those to whom we 
wish to appeal. 

We want every employee to feel free to submit 
his ideas, and be satisfied with the disposition that 
he receives. If you have a good idea and fail to 
hand it in, both you and company are losers. We 
want the following types of suggestions: 

1. Cost Reduction. 

2. Xew and Improvement of Products. 

3. Improvement of Alanufacturing and Office 

4. Reduction of Fire and Accident Hazard. 

5. General Maintenance. 
Remember: — Big Awards For Big Thoxtghfs.

The Kodak Magazine has filled a want that could 
never be satisfactorily filled by individual plant 
bulletins. Of course, we thoroughly enjoyed the 
old Camera Works Bullcthi, and Kodak Park had 
its magazine, but as far as the smaller plants were 
concerned, they were "out of the running" al- 
together. Now we learn of what is going on in all 
the other plants. 

The Camera Works section isn't a one man 
proposition or a dozen-man one either. It's an 
"everybody's" job, or at least, it should be. 

Just pencil your news, or thoughts, or ideas, on 
a handy scrap of paper, and mail it, or hand it 
personally, to "Herb" Thorpe — Industrial Rela- 
tions Department. He wants to get the news from 
all departments. 


How many of us under-go a periodical ]>hysical 
examination? The days are jammed so full of the 
business of living, that we hardly find time for per- 
sonal analysis, so it is fortunate that we have a 
Medical Department which takes more interest in us 
than we do in ourselves. Dr. Sawyer and his staff, 
have the fullest co-operation of the company in 
giving this splendid service. Not only will a 
thorough examination be given, but an X-ray pho- 
tograph of the lungs and heart will be taken free of 
charge, and a written report, with recommenda- 
tions, will be .sent to each person examined. These 
reports are absolutely confidential, and will no 
doubt prove to be invaluable in many instances 
where slight defects can he easily corrected. 

Prevention is better than cure. 


The Cameko Club started its winter's activities 
by holding a bowling party at the Genesee Alleys. 
A bi-weekly schedule has been arranged, and if the 
opening night's scores are indicative of the average 
of the members, the pinstickers will soon become 
weary of having to "set them up" on the one-ball 
Ijowlers, and page Tommy Swales for assistance. 

The past summer has been far too short for the 
members of the Camekos. Probably one of their 
most delightful excursions was the three-day trip to 
Toronto via the "Kingston" at which time the 

members were shown through Canadian Kodak 
Company by our Camera Works friend, Harry 
Perkins. No less interesting and full of enjoyment 
was the canoe and camping party, held at "West- 
minster on the Gene-see," where the days were 
whiled away with baseball and swimming, the 
evenings with dancing. 

The tlijrd annual election of officers will be held 
at the December meeting of the Camekos. the new 
officers to be installed the first of the year. A full 
attendance of members is requested at this meeting. 





It is always interesting to "see ourselves as others 
see us," and especially so when other people's 
opinions are complimentary. In England, the com- 
pany operates a plant at Harrow-on-the-Hill and 
Wealdstone, which vies with Kodak Park for beau- 
tiful natural surroundings. It was the Editor's 
pleasure to witness the employees sports-day during 
the summer of 191-1, and a finer "Kodak" spirit 
coidd not be displayed than that of the boys and 
girls who revelled in a regular picnic arranged by the 
managers of Kodak, Limited, (,'onsequently it was 
with delight that we noticed, in our English cousins 
publication. "Kodak Works Bulletin," an article 
entitled "To Rochester," -wTitten in serial form, by 
Mr. S. H. Wratten. 

yiv. Wratten is the originator of the world-famous 
Wratten dry plate, and is now chief of the Develop- 
ment Department at our company's English divi- 
sion. He paid an official visit to Rochester, and his 
descriptions and reflections of the journey, of our 
city, and of the people he met, are more than enter- 
taining. Mr. Wratten is a wTiter of no mean repute, 
and his literary style in these series of articles is of 
the finest "King's English." He pays tribute to 
the rising power of .\merica in the following 

"If America today owes her greatness to tiie 
immigrant of yesterday, to what will she grow when, 
tomorrow, she releases the mental abilities of, for 
instance, the Polish Jews; and the inborn musical 
genius of these Czecho-Slovaks, together with the 
varied intellectual powers that now lie latent in this 
assorted crowd. Frankly, I am happy, I see the 
progeny of these people, naturally receptive and 
keenly eager for education, developing their talents 
in well-equipped schools. I see the inter-breeding, 
which, by all teachings of biologj', produces the 
finest people, and I my.self if the result will be 
equalled in the old countries. I do not think it 
will be. Europe appears to have passed its merid- 
ian — the sun has risen in the Xew Worlds, and of 

these the greatest and most advanced is "America." 
yir. Wratten takes us, in his story, from the port 
of Southampton, England, to Xew York, minutely 
describing the sea voyage, and then — on to Roches- 
ter. His comparison between American and Euro- 
pean travelling facilities is both amusing and intel- 
ligent. After giving us a droll idea of a "sleeper," 
he says, "I am watching a fellow passenger per- 
forming the sleeping car ritual by drinking water on 
rising froni his berth — the full dimensions of which 
are approximate to a camera shipping case. A neat 
pile of paper bags are so arranged as to be detached 
one at a time. I took my turn and my bag — and 
then the fun commenced. Drinking out of a paper 
V)ag in a swaying train is an art; the bag of water 
wobbles like jelly. ^line wobbled so much that 
the water missed my mouth and disappeared be- 
tween my collar and neck. It was beautifully 
clean, ice-cold water, and very wet and satisfying." 
Rochester is reviewed from all angles. Regard- 
ing motor cars, the story states that "Police on 
motorcyles wait like panthers to spring upon the 
man or woman whose car exceeds '-2.5." The art of 
driving in America is to see the 'traffic cop" first. If 
he sees you first, then you get a green tag on your 
steering wheel. This gives you the freedom of 
the City Police Station, and the undivided atten- 
tion of the Inspector, who will introduce you to the 
Judge, who in turn tells you to a dollar, the cost 
of sin, and its remission." 

I will not attempt to i^uote excerpts from Mr. 
Wratten's vivid story about the Camera Works, or 
the other Rochester plants. To those of us who 
enjoy well-written literature with a sprinkle of 
satire and comedy, the quotations contain enough 
spice to sharpen our appetites to digest the whole 
story. The Industrial Relations Department has 
all the installments from the Kodak Works Bulletin 
to date, which will be gladly loaned to our readers 
who appreciate a chance to "see ourselves as 
others see us. " 


At the recent Tenth Annual Congress of tiie 
Xational Safety Council, J. A. Robertson was 
elected to represent Rochester on the X'ational 
Executive Committee. This virtually means that 
"Jack" himself is commander-in-chief in this dis- 
trict as far as co-operation with the national body 
is concerned. It is just possible that a national 
resolution might not "fit in" with local problems 
and conditions; so, in order to overcome such a con- 
dition, seven divisional representatives were elected, 
Mr. Robertson being ours. 

Let us stand firmly back of him. Let us give him 
this message to convey to the executive body: 
"Rochester is the safest city in the United States. 
Conspicuous among the industrial plants of the city, 
is the Camera Works, whose record against acci- 
dents is a matter of civic pride. Every employee is 
backing me up in my firm conviction that the gospel 
of safety, and its application, is one of the most 
important phases of the social and economic life of 

Let's all stand up and shout "We're with you. " 


In the atliletic section, you will find a general 
story covering basketball. You will note that 
Charlie Kivell is to engineer our basketball fiends 
in the Kodak League which means that we will have 
a real team. 

Before the Recreation Club drive took place, the 
Board of Managers promised you lots of advan- 
tages in becoming "one of us." Basketball is one of 
them. By purchasing a series card of six tickets, 
you pay but twenty-five cents for two good basket- 
ball games between Camera Works, Kodak Park, 
Main Office and Hawk-Eye, and a first class dance 
thrown in for good measure. Four hours recreation 
for a quarter! Every Wednesday, at eight o'clock, 
the first tussle starts, and the last one ends before 
ten o'clock. An A-1 orchestra will be on the job 
until the close of the season. 

Make Wednesday night a regular "Kodak" one. 
You can't afford to miss a single game of the League 
series. Obtain your season tickets from the 
Secretarv of the Club.

Three hundred twelve thousand, four hiuidred 
gallons of water are stored for protection against a 
Canaera Works fire. 

This immense volume of water is our plant re- 
serve, in addition to the city high pressure hydrants, 
eight of which surround the factory. 


A water system, adequate for our factory build- 
ings, is one of the many things to which few of us ever 
give a thought; yet it is an interesting subject 
to study. Try to picture a cistern seventy feet 
long, forty-eight feet wide, and eight feet deep, 
running under your back yard I Yet that is ex- 
actly what we have at the Camera Works. Every 
time you walk across the yard, you step over two 
hundred thousand gallons of water, which can 
furnish through our steam-driven pumps, one 
himdred twenty pounds of pressure to the square 

To give you a detailed desiription of the intri- 
cate .systems installed for fire protection pur[)oses 
would require the knowledge of an iiydraulic expert, 
but we can tell you .sometliing of the simi)lcr methods 
the company has installed against danger from fire. 

On building Xo. !), a steel tower supports a tank 
having a cajjacity of forty thousand gallons, which 
is used for supi)lyiiig the sjirinklfr system in that 
particular structure. Suspended from eacii ceiling 
are several two-inch pipes, which have, every ten 
feet, a device known as a "sprinkler head." Tiie 
head consists of an automatic valve, which, under 

normal conditions, is kept closed by a fusible sub- 
stance. Should this substance become subject to 
abnormal heat of 16.5 degrees, it melts, tlms releasing 
the valve, and causing the water — which is kept 
under high pressure — to spray in all directions. One 
does not have to be an engineer to realize how in- 
valuable such an invention is, for it means that 
between each floor is a barrage of water, which 
practically serves as a fire-proof wall. On the roof 
of Building 1 and -2 are two tanks with a capacity of 
eleven thousand four hundred, and twelve thousand 
gallons respectively. Again, on Building 3, a con- 
tainer holds twenty-five thousand gallons of water, 
and on liuildings 11 and 1'2, thirty-four thousand 
gallons. Thus we see the tremendous volume 
which is held in readiness for fire emergencies. 

Throughout the six buildings which comprise the 
Camera Works are sixty-two hose-pipes attached to 
stand-pipes. The hose-pipes placed end to end, 
would measure four thousand, five hunrlred and 
fifty feet, or four-fifths of a mile. 

Naturally such a water system requires careful 
inspection. The hose must be examined, the water 
measured, the steam pimips tested, and the main 
hydrants must always be in perfect working order. 
Sam Barons is the man having this responsible 
duty to perform, and his inspection, together with 
the three hundred men who comprise the fire pre- 
vention squad, make our factory more than reason- 
ablv safe from fire hazards.

The fiction library's quarters have been moved to 
the dining room. Gussie Bornkessel has been 
appointed librarian. If you wish to know which 
book to choose, ask her. We have yet to discover 
the book that Gussie has not read, and she is, as 
you know, always willing to chat with you about 
literature. Get comfy tliis winter with good books. 
You'll enjoy the restfulness that an entertaining 
story always brings. 

To all the employees of the Camera Works, the 
Editor extends the sincere wish of a happy and 
prosperous Xew Year. With conditions shaping 
themselves toward normal, the outlook for the com- 
ing twelve months is merry and bright. Most of 
our fears and hopes are governed by our own state 
of mind, so it's up to all of us to say that business is 
booming, and then work like '"old Harry" to make 
it so. 

Kodak Park extends a hearty invitation to all 
Camera Workers to visit its splendid assembly hall 
each Wednesday night until further notice, to dance 
and watch basketball. Let us take full advantage 
of this friendly get-together invitation. 

A very enjoyable Hallowe'en party was arranged 
for the office girls and boys, "Al" Weltzer having 
charge of the affair. A large barn was donated for 
the purpose, and" 'Billy "Lawrence helped to decorate 
with corn stalks and Jack-0-Lanterns. The party 
indidged in dancing and games, and a spread of 
good things. 

Sympathy is extended to the family of Anna 
Goldman, who recently passed away, leaving a sad 
void in the hearts of her manv friends. 

Phillip Mattle of the Tool Supervision Depart- 
ment, is using every minute of his spare time in 
order to complete his house at Honeoye Lake Ijefore 
the spring fishing season arrives. Phil is evidently 
figuring on the boys staying over the week ends, for he 
tells us that the building is being partitioned to 
accommodate dozens of beds. A two-story house, 
with, as Phil expresses it, a "■ Noah's Ark" attic, 
should prove a great attraction to "the gang" 
during the good old summer time. 


A visitor, while going through the plant, lost a 
wrist watch and offered a reward for its return. The 
Industrial Relations Department was notified of the 
loss and patiently waited for the wrist watch to be 
sent in as a "found" article. After waiting a few 
days. — and the visitor naturally getting somewhat 
anxious over the change for recovery of his watch. — 
an investigation was started to discover, if possible, 
the whereabouts of the article. 

Fortunately, it was found reposing peacefully in 
an employee's desk drawer. The employee was 
perfectly innocent of the fact that somebody was 
worrying about the loss of the watch, and he was 
also unconscious of the fact that a reward had been 
offered for its recovery. 

Happily everything was straightened out very 
satisfactory, but it all goes to prove how much 
easier it would be if all articles found in the factory 
were turned over to the Industrial Relations Depart- 

This rule also applies to employees who have lost 
articles. Please bear in mind that only by strict co- 
operation can we give efficient service to everyone. 


The Camera Works Industrial Relations Depart- 
ment receives each month a number of copies of the 
company's publications, "Studio Light," the "Kodak 
Salesman" and "Kodakery." 

If you wish to read any of these, make application 
to the Industrial Relations Department, and your 
name will be placed on the circulation list. 

Warren White's birthday comes but once a year, 
and it happened to fall on November 3rd. 

Warren of the Tool Room, who is quite young (for 
his age) decided that birthdays are useless without 
some kind of a celebration. After getting the boys 
together, they marched down to his private em- 
porium where a luncheon was served a-la-bohemia. 

George Brooks and "Dave" Olson assisted Warren 
in making the party a success. 

That veteran of the Camera Works, Vincent Zick, 
is back on the job again, after an operation for 
appendicitis. "Vince" says that he feels even 
younger than when he went away. 



N. A. VAN DE CARR, Editor 

From the first jazz notes played by"Al"Stillson's 
"Feverish Five," which opened the evening's 
festivities, until curfew at the Maplewood "Y," 
the Advertising Department Halloween Party was a 
triumph of terpsichorean joy, of merry minstrelsy, 
of pumpkin pie, apples and cider. 

With all due credit to Lady Duff-Gordon s years 
of study and experience, the interior decorations of 
the hall — the handiwork of the girls of the Depart- 
ment — surpassed anything m'lady ever attempted. 
Attractive autumn leaves, black cats, vari-colored 
streamers — even a paper hat for each merry-maker 
— and the cider, pie and apples ad infinitum were 
tastefully arranged about the room. Mural decora- 
tions delightful to the eye of the artist, delicatessen 
embellishments delectable to the palate of the 
epicure — these were the order of the evening. 
Only under the leadership of a General Committee 
consisting of Huyla Kauffman, Madeline Lansing, 
Albert A. Stillson (himself) and "Bill" ^lead could 
the arrangements in toto have been carried off so 
smoothly — so satisfactorily. Only a Committee on 
refreshments composed of Mrs. Haefele, Carol 
Williams and Hilda Bramer could have cuisined 
so wisely — so well. 

The fame of "Al" Jolson as an entertainer is 
forever dimmed — he does his bit, we admit — but he 
just cannot compare with the ^Nlerry Minstrels of 

the Advertising Department. Among the special 
stunts, this sextette of syncopating songsters was 
easily the hit of the evening. However, aside from 
Carol Williams" artistic aerial act, there was no 
histrionic competition; so, too much credit should 
not be meted out to the trilling troubadors. By 
special request, not due to their maidenly modesty, 
but as a health precaution suggested by the Safety 
First Committee, the names of the singing si.K are 
omitted. The composers of the paralyzing parodies 
they rendered must also remain one with the mys- 
tery of the Pyramids. They sang strange songs of 
the personnel of the department, things we never 
once suspected of our co-advertisers, and things 
they didn't even know themselves. 

Then dancing, fancy, plain and staple, was served 
up until midnight. The well-known Paul Jones 
was paged several times during the evening to the 
detriment of the furniture. He greatly facilitated 
the clever work of Messrs. Jones, Gillette, Hodgson 
and Strobel, who constituted the Reception Com- 
mittee, and who went to no mean ends to dispense 
with all formality and make everyone feel welcome. 
As an introducer, Paul Jones is a superb institution. 
One just ran into another and remained fast friends, 
at least until the joyous crowd tore them apart as 
capriciously as tliey had been thrust together. 

It was a big night, spent in a big way — typical 
of the Advertising Department. 


The newly-organized Kodak Progress Society 
held its first two regular meetings on the l~th of 
Octol)er and the 7th of November. .\s it is the 
plan of the Society to carry througii tlie accoiuiting 
end of tlie Kodak organization from raw material 
to the final net profit, the first meeting was devoted 
to the "History of the Compan\'. " R. ('iiandler 
Kron spoke on the organization and acquisition of 
the manufacturing companies, and "Jack" Ley- 
senaar on the organization of our stockhouses. 

At the second meeting, accounting for the manu- 
facturing end of tlie l)Usiness was taken up. W. L. 
McXulty told iiow camera factory offices are 
organized, and how costs are asscMubled on orders. 
Cornelius J. \ an Neil spoke on tlic jjroducts manu- 
factured at Kodak Park and the methods employed 
in handling process costs. Harry Tliomas spoke 
very interestingly on gross profit. 


Now tiiat tlie clays are stormy, you will be glad 
to know that tlie Business Library is open for read- 
ing during tlie lunch hour. In it yon will find books 
on .Vccounting, Business English, .\dvertising, 
Exjiortiiig and Business PsychologA', and siicii 
magazines as Adiiiinislraliou. Pritifcrs' Ink. Fac- 
tory, Sy.sfem. Industrial Management, and Man- 
agement Engineering. Besides, tliere are files of 
the New York Times and Rochester papers. 

During office hours, the Lilirary may be used for 
reference. .\ problem very often may be solved 
by the use of a book. 

Tlie resources of the Library are at the disposal 
of every emi)loyee. If you haven't used them yet, 
take the elevator to the thirteenth floor, turn to 
your left and walk straight ahead. The lateh- 
striu" is out. 




The girls of the Sixth Floor have made good 
use of the dining-room again. On Hallowe'en 
night, promptly at six o'clock, forty of them sat 
down to dinner. Ask any of them about the eats! 
Afterward, they adjourned to the rest room where 
all kinds of Halloween pranks and games were 

played. Many bright futures were foretold by 
Abbie Mcllroy and Helen Boyle. Music was 
furnished by the Marzon & Benjamin orchestra. 
Many of the girls were in fancy costumes, even 
"Cousin Kate" (Luella Thompson) in her dress of 


An enjoyable evening was spent by over half of 
the employees of the Billing Department in the 
Premo club quarters at Premo Plant in South Street. 

Extra fine music was provided for dancing by 
Otto's Orchestra. During the evening the Argonne 
Four, composed of Messrs. Brown, Hilbert, (ioebel 
and Tutty, rendered several songs. Eddie Hilbert 
was well received with a basso solo. 

Coffee and sandwiches were .served and cider and 
fried cakes were distributed throughout the evening. 
Everyone voted a good time. 

Thanks are due Messrs. McKenney and Wheeler 
of the Premo for kindness extended at the Billing 
Department party. 


The K. O. R. C. girls will be represented on the 
basketball court again this year. A good number of 
last year's players were present at a recent meeting, 
and it looks as though a fighting team would be 
developed. Clara EfYord, who was one of the main- 
stays of last year's team, has been chosen Captain. 

The manager has been trying to secure the Exposi- 
tion Park court for practice, and, with John Boeing, 
who has had several years of training on college 
teams, as coach, the Hawk-Eye aggregation will 
have to look out for their scalps. 


The K. O. R. C. fall dance proved to be one of 
the most successful in the history of the Club. 
On the evening of November loth, a full moon rose 
over the Masonic Temple and a goodly number of 
Kodak Office employees and their friends drifted 
in to dance to the strains of Damon's Orchestra. 
Department heads and club officers were among the 
crowd and Harry Seaman with his bevy of pretty 
girls behind the punch bowl occupied a very popular 
corner of the hall. The punch was of the usual 
good vintage, and the music continued until mid- 
night. A word of credit should be said for Alice 
Upton and her efficient workers, who managed the 
dance so successfullv. 


Camera Works may have the leading man in 
length of service for the Rochester branches, but 
the Finishing Department is inclined to claim 
the leading lady. Luella Thompson had her thirty- 
second anniver.sarv on November 2nd. 

The Finished Stock Department has vacated its 
headquarters on the eighth floor, and is now located 
on the fifth floor of the new building. 



One windy Saturday afternoon, not long ago, 
about seventy members of the Sales Department 
motored up the River to Kathryn Kennedy's 

Hammer Throw and a new distance record was set 
in the Ladies" Races, Mrs. Van coming in first, 
followed bv "Jen" Hennessev.

piped on deck for a sausage roast. 

In spite of the high wind which played havoc 
with the locks of the ladies, "Joe" Di Nunzio, Frank 
Strowger and "Skip" Seaman, ably assisted by 
Fred Rogers, built a fire and proceeded to do their 
worst — which wasn't so bad.

The floor of the park pavilion was a trifle slippery, 
but otherwise excellent for dancing. In the Prize 
Waltz, honors were awarded to "Mazie" Lansing 
and "Joe" Di Nunzio, and everyone present 
approved the choice of the judges, Messrs. Gragg 
and McBride. The party broke up about seven 
and everyone departed full of good cheer, sausages,

Advertising Department. 

TIic wedding of Laura Huwald and "Rudy" 
Ilaefele was solemnized at the bride's home on 
Sixth Street and the matrimonial neophites are 
making their home at '-277 Ravcnwood .\venue. 
Laura is .secretary to "Bill" Strobel, and "Rudy" 
is with Bausch and Lomb. The pre-nuptials 
included a variety shower given by the girls of the 
Advertising Department.

Florence Schutt of the Finishing Department 
office decided she preferred teaching to business, 
so left us to go to the Geneseo Normal for training. 
Her letters sound as though she was enjoying it 
very much.

As clam-bake connoisseurs, we are compelled to 
hand Charles Howard and Walter Capell the Green 
Bay Tree. The members of the "Put and Take" 
Club were fed and entertained by these two cele- 


brated chefs at Sea Breeze on October '•29th, and 
the above verdict was handed down by a staid jury 
composed of such profound minds as Harry Fenn, 
Harry Mahar, Armand Gaussiun, Harry Haight.

Fred Preston Root, Fred Scheibie and Ray Hyde. 
Messrs. Bachelder and Ferris were so pleased with 
the clams that they begged the privilege of taking 
home the wings of three of them. Harry Fenn, 
being somewhat of a naturalist, made a special 
study of the mud turtle which was on exhibition 
near the Fountain of Youth. 


The Suggestion System offers a direct means 
by which you may help to increase the efficiency 
at Kodak Office and we gladly consider ideas along 
any of the following lines. Remember "Big

The girls of the Stock Department again exper- 
ienced one of their good times when they gathered 
at Rena Bradley's home for .some Hallowe'en fun. 

The evening was spent in playing games, dancing, 
singing, and last but not least, in enjoying lots of 
good things to eat. 

We wish to extend our sympathy to Pauline 
Wolfe of the Testing and Packing Department, 
whose father recently passed away. 

The Testing and Packing Department was 
recently favored by a visit from Vertrip Flynn. 

Vertrip is very happy and we are glad she enjoys 
hospital training. 

So long, Mildred, how we hate to see you go! 
Our best wishes follow Mildred Mayer, who left 
Kodak Office to become the bride of Stanley W. 
Arend, Thanksgiving afternoon. The ceremony 
was performed at Mildred's home, by Rev. Clinton 

We are all wishing C. R. Franklin and Ernest 
White the best of luck — they have left the Main 
Office to join the forces of the G. M. Laboratories, 
Inc., in Long Island City. 

Maud Betts has been elected Captain of the 
Tabulating bowling team, to succeed Sally Keefe, 
who recently tendered her resignation. We wish 
our new Captain success in her undertaking. 

The Paper Division of the Sales Department has 
lost one of its shining lights, for Marie McKee has 
transferred her affections to Mr. Fell's office. How- 
ever, we wish you luck, Marie! 

The Medical Department welcomes Laura Cramer 
who has recently been transferred from the cashier's 

The Adjustment Department is sorry to lose 
Loretta Carbone, who has joined the ranks of the 
Repair Department as Mr. Fenn's secretary. 

Julia Mclnerney wishes to thank the Welfare 
Club of the Shipping and Stock Departments for 
the sympathy shown h er in her recent bereavement 

James McClellan, night watchman of Building 
8, who recently met with an automobile accident, 
died on October 20th. We extend our deepest 
sympathy to his family. 

The Service Department will miss Anna Sharkey, 
who has been in charge of the files for a considerable 
time, but the best wishes of the entire office force 
go with her. She was married Wednesday, Novem- 
ber 23rd, at Sacred Heart Church to James J. 
O'Rourke of the Ingle Machine Company. 


The K. O. R. C. men's basketball team, under 
Captain "Hash" McNeil, is getting into .shape. The 
prospect of having a real Kodak League this year 
made the boys at the Main Office more enthusiastic 
than ever. W'e are assured of the hard work by 
every player, but there is one other essential to a 

fighting team — that is a good crowd of noisy rooters. 
Get out for every game that you possibly can. 
Perhaps you can't plav basketball, but you can yell, 
sing and whistle. That's what we want — noise, 
and lots of it. It's about time Main Office landed 
a pennant.

The third annual bowling season of the Folmer- 
Century Athletic Association opened at the Eagles 
Alleys on Friday evening, November 11th, with all 
the pomp and ceremony of previous years. To 
hear the balls clicking into the pockets on opening 
night, one would never have guessed there had ever 
been an armistice.

Guiding the League's destinies this year are S. G. 
Pope, President, and George J. .lost. Secretary. 

The Auto Jrs. took two out of three from the 
Stereo team, while the Graflex squad won the odd 
from Kirvan's Compact rollers. 

Spencer (i. Pope, Prfsident George J. Jost, Secretary and Treasurer 

Mr. Folmer spoke briefly, congratulating the 
boys on the l)owling ability they have displayed 
during the past two seasons, and expressing hope 
for an even more successful year, in spite of the fact 
that only four teams will be rc|)rescnted. 

George Roche, Works .Accountant, was also 
present, but contented himself with an exhibition 
of skill on the alleys. 

Among the "old familiar faces," who elected to 
be with the boys again were "Pop" Kirvan, "Bill" 
Melvin, former President of the League, and 
".\ndy" Sold, with the old famous "hook ball." 
Mr. Folmer, Mr. Koclie, I'residfiit l'oi)c, and Retir- 
ing President Melvin started the balls rolling. 

Line-ups of the four teams are as follows: 


Jost (Captain) Fenner (Cai)tain") 

Hegnauer Bird 

Clark Le Beau 

Burke McNamara 

Drabinski Perrin 


Kirvan (Captain) 






Sold (Captain) 





Our sincere sympathy is extended to James 
Herbert of the Assembly Department, in the death 
of his mother. 

We are all glad to see Otto Petroske, President 
of the Folmer-('entury .\thletic Association, back 
with us again after his illness.

Edward McCormack, of the Assembly Depart- 
ment, has been arranf^ing a euchre tournament 
to be played during the noon hour this winter. 
So far, twenty-five men have signed up. Anyone 
wishing to play in this tournament is requested to 
get in touch with "Eddie" McCormack immediately. 

Richard Clark of the Wood Department, who had 
been ill for some time at the United States Public 
Health Service Hospital, Xo. 41, at New Haven, 
Connecticut, returned to work on October 31st. 
We congratulate him on his speedy recovery. 

We heard recently from William \'ogt of the 
Inspection Department, who has been ill for some 
time. "Bill" is improving nicely and we expect to 
see him back in tiie near future. 


Finished Stock Department 


On November 3rd the girls of the Folmer-Century 
office gave a lunciieon in honor of Mrs. Arthur 
Mildahn, our telephone operator, who, before her 
marriage last December, was Mildred Bailey. 
Covers were laid for sixteen, and, at the conclusion 
of the luncheon, Mrs. Mildahn was presented with a 
farewell gift. Mildred was with us for five years, 
and, although we tried to persuade her to remain, 
the prospect of housekeeping was more alluring. 


Get the safety habit — -give safety advice. It 
is better to lose several minutes avoiding accidents 
than to lose several weeks from an injury. If you 
see a man acting carelessly, tell him about it; 
don't be afraid to hurt his feelings. 

Boyd Rollins, our plant engineer, has returned 
from a hunting trip in the Adu'ondacks. 




Right Dressl for basketball. 

Forward Marchl to Kodak Park. 

The war is ON ! Four first-rate powers 
have "dug in" along the Kodak basketball 
front, and weekly engagements are being 
fought in the winter quarters at Kodak 
Park. The initial battles 
of the campaign were 
waged on Thanksgiving 
Eve, when Hawk-Eye 
w^ent over the top against 
Kodak Park, while Ko- 
dak Office launched a 
gas attack in the Camera 
Works sector. And, now 
the burning question is: 
which of the four con- 
tenders will carry off the 
spoils of war — that is, 
the Kodak basketball 
championship ? 

This season marks the 
premiere of a Kodak 
League on the court. 
Kodak Park, minus some 
of the stars of semi-pro 
days, is still looked upon 
as a likely contender for 
the flag, but Hawk-Eye 
and Kodak Office point 
with satisfaction to their 
records of a year ago, and 
promise to make all kinds 
of trouble for the Lake 
Avenue contingent. 
Camera Works got away 
to a late start last win- 
ter, but, with a com-

Wednesday nights have been set aside 
for the activities of the new circuit, and 
the program offered includes two rattling 
fast court contests and 
two hours of dancing

Kivell's line-up is moulded around 
Pressley, Hines, Welch, and "Pinkey" 
Rutan. Hawk-Eye has an old-timer at 
the helm in the person of "Biir" Roche, 
with a veritable raft of material, includ- 
ing such formidable figures as "Cliff" 
Johnson, "Wib" Woodams, and "Benny" 
Levine. The balance of the five was 

picked from a squad in w'hich were 
found Bamford, Bryson, Felerski, Gra- 
ham, Hofi^meier, Ingleby, Keller, Kempf, 
Prentice, Quetchenback, Pearson, Van- 
Doren, Springer, Welden, and Van Lare. 
All in all, it looks like a big wanter; 
so, you might as well get dated up right 
now^ for Wednesday nights. 


Indooi baseball — on the outdoor dia- 
mond — reached heights hitherto unknown 
in Rochester, during the past summer. 
Hawk-Eye, Kodak Park, and the Kodak 
Office, all had departmental leagues in 
w^hich interest ran high, while exciting 
series were played between these three 
plants. Camera Works has supported a 
departmental league during each of the 
past two winters. 

What more logical, then, that this 

widespread interest should be crystallized 
into a company League? Hawk-Eye has 
consistently been a contender in the City 
Indoor League in w hich Kodak Park and 
Camera Works were also represented in 
1919-'20. But, the time seems to have 
come when this sport should be included 
in the roster of Kodak inter-plant activi- 
ties. The players are here, and the 
interest; so, about all it needs, is some- 
body to organize the project.

JANUARY. 19^22 

No. 8 



JUST one year ago we announced: 
"the Eastman Savings and Loan 
Association — our association — is now 
ready for, and doing business." 

The plan of the Association was so 
sound, and so practical, that it met with 
instant approval, and in spite of general 
business conditions, its first year's record 
is one of which we can, all of us. justly 
be proud. 

There is nothing more strengthening 
to the human spinal column than a bit 
of cash laid by — and the moment a man 
moves into a home he can call liis own, 
he becomes a better citizen. 

No one can argue against the advan- 
tages of thrift, but the great trouble has 
been the finding of a means for regidar 
and persistent saving. 

Our Association provides the ideal 
method; through it, saving becomes an 
automatic process without effort or 
inconvenience on the part of the 

When layoffs due to lack of work 
became inevitable, many a shareholder 
blessed the day he signed his application 
card in the Eastman Savings and Loan 
Association, as otherwise he would ha\'e 
had nothing laid by to meet the 

One splendid examj)le of iiow the 
Association is appreciated is shown by 
the fact that many employees who were 
laid off are still keeping up the i)ayments 
on their shares, and thai many more 
who were forced to withdraw are eagerly 
awaiting the time when they can again 
become members. 

Up to November 1st. IfHl. the East- 
man Savings and T^oan .Vssociation. in 
conjunction witli the Kodak Kini)loyees 

Association, had enabled one hundred 
and forty-nine Kodak employees to 
move into their own homes, with a 
number of other loans now in process of 
completion; a representative group of 
these homes is shown on pages 6 and 7. 

While the ability to aid the prospective 
home-owner in the accomplishment of 
his desire is an outstanding feature in 
the work of the Association, the big thing 
is the establishment of the habit of 
systematic saving. 

The Eastman Savings and Loan Asso- 
ciation now has 5.9'29 shareholders, with 
a matured value of shares amounting to 
'$J-,5o'-2, 000, which is, to say the least, 
a mighty fine record. 

The future of the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association is assured, and 
with the coming of livelier business, we 
can hope for pretty close to a one hundred 
per cent employee membership. 

It seems fitting to include in this brief 
review of the first year of the Eastman 
Savings and Loan Association some 
mention of the co-operation of our 
Industrial Relations De])artment with 
the Association, as regards the housing 

While the company has built no 
houses to be sold to Kodak employees, 
the Industrial Relations Department 
has made a complete survey of the situa- 
tion, and has made satisfactory arrange- 
ments with local builders to erect suitable, 
modern houses, at a mininnnn cost. 

Under tiiis arrangement the company 
has supervised the erection of a number 
of houses on Wilton Avenue, just ofT 
Dewey Avenue, near Kodak Park West. 
A group of these houses is showai on 
page 2. The lots are 40 In- 100 feet and 


the houses are '20 feet by '20 feet and 22 
feet by '24 feet. Inside and out they are 
honestly constructed and with strictly 
modern conveniences as to arrangement 
and fixtures. The smaller of the houses 
are of 5 rooms each, the larger containing 
Grooms; the prices range from $4,500.00 
to $5,100.00. 

The future efforts of the Industrial 

Relations Department in this direction 
depend most naturally upon the interest 
shown by the employees, and in what they 
desire to have done. This Department 
will do everything possible to make sure 
that the employee gets full value in 
purchasing or building a home, and is 
at all times ready with suggestions for 
plans and tlie like. 


SO RUNS the song of the man 
(or woman) who doesn't make a 
budget. He doesn't know where he's 
going, but he's on his way. And the 
chances are good that January 1, 1923, 
will find him financially just about where 
he is at this moment. 

Business enterprises, to be successful, 
have to be planned out in advance. 
That's why this concern, and every pro- 
gressive commercial organization, has 
its Planning Department. The same 
principle holds good in the conduct of 
one's personal business. 

In the December number of the Kodak 
Magazine, Mr. Eastman showed how 
systematic saving made it possible for 
him to start a business for himself. He 
had ready money when he most needed 

Do you know what has become of the 
money you earned during 1921.^ How 
much of it went for clothing, how much 
for household expenses, for rent, for 
charity, for amusement, for carfare, for 
insurance — how much was saved? If 
you know, you have something on which 
to work in planning your budget for this 
year. The process is simple; just set 
down a list of the things for which you 
will have to spend money during the 
year, and place opposite each item the 
amount you can afford to spend on that 
particular thing. Then, stick within that 
figurel As a recent advertisement in a 
local newspaper puts it: 

"Budget means setting aside so 
much for, say, rent; so much for 
household expenses; so much for 
savings bank; so much for amuse- 
ment, etc., promising yourself not 
to spend more than the amount you 
set aside for each item, and then 
keeping your promise to yourself." 

And right there is the corner-stone of 
your financial structure — that business 
of keeping your promise to yourself. 
If you do it, your budget will be success- 
ful. Whereof it might even be said that 
"he that keepeth his own budget is 
greater than he that taketh a city." 

At the office of the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association, 343 State Street, 
you will find considerable material deal- 
ing with the subject of budget-making 
and thrift. Included in this material 
are the State College bulletins on 

Keeping a Cash Account, 

Making a Budget, 

Home Furnishing, 

Choosing the Daily Food. 

These will be distributed without 
charge to Kodak people who ask for 
them. At this office you will also find a 
list of the books on these subjects which 
can be obtained at each of the public 
libraries. Mr. Bartholomew or Miss 
Crafts at the Savings and Loan Associa- 
tion office will be glad to be of assistance 
to those who desire further information. 



HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars 
are spent each year for "patent" 
medicine nostrums. But few liave any 
curative ]:)roj)erties whatsoever, and many 
are decidedly harmful in that they are 
habit-forming'. Many fatalities are on 
record due to the giving of these 
"medicines" to small children and infants. 
In most cases, when these remedies have 
any medicinal value whatsoever, the 
purchaser pays an exhorbitant price, as 
they are usually compounded of some 
simple ingredients which could be pur- 
chased for one-tenth the sum in any drug 

Certain obvious things never seem to 
impress themselves upon the purchaser 
of these nostrums. It does not seem to 
occur to him that, if the patent medicines 
of a past generation had possessed the 
powers claimed for them, they would 
continue to sell when no longer adver- 
tised, or at least if they did not, it would 
be because they had banished sickness 
from the earth. Like the old, the present 
day nostrums will drop out of sight and 
be forgotten when their advertising, the 
only thing which now sustains them, is 

If grown-up men and women j)ersist 
in spending, throwing away, good money 
for trash, it is perhaps quite their own 
business, but when helpless children and 
infants are so often .subjected to dangerous 
medication, it seems well to sound a 

The practice of giving infants soothing 
syrups and "teething" mixtures has often 
been attended with .serious results owing 
to the presence of opiates, such as mor- 
phine and laudanum. Remedies for such 
disturbances should never be given except 
on the advice of a reputable physician. 

The coroner of one of our largest cities, 
in investigating the death of two infants, 
presinnably from an overdose of a 
certain baby remedy, made some experi- 
ments with it. First, he gave a six-days- 
old puppy 30 drops of the prei)aration. 
The pup never awakened from the deep 

sleep that overcame him at once. He 
gave a two-weeks-old kitten 20 drops 
and she promptly went to sleep and slej)t 
four hours. The next day he gave her 
30 drops which put her to sleep forever. 

Great caution should be exercised with 
regard to the midtitude of headache 
remedies now on the market, as a goodly 
number of them contain poisons that 
have produced fatal effects. If a head- 
ache will not yield to a few hours sleep, 
or some simple remedy for a stomach 
disarrangement, consult your physician. 

There are patent medicines for all the 
ills that flesh is heir to, and for many 
imaginary ones, as well. We could con- 
tinue on through any number of jiages 
pointing out the absurdity of the claims 
made for most of them, but at best the 
most we can do is to ask you to use 
judgment before spending your money. 

Many people assume that the Federal 
Food and Drugs Act, commonly known 
as the Pure Food Law, effectively safe- 
guards the public against the menace of 
the nostrums. This act exercises no 
control over statements that are published 
separate from the package, such as in 
newspaper advertisements and hand bills 
distributed from door to door. 

There is always danger in self -diagnosis 
and self -treatment. Do not take chances 
with your own health, and the health 
of your family. Avoid the use of medi- 
cines with which you are not familiar, 
and which have not been recommended 
or prescribed by your physician. 


IF your quarterly statement from the 
Eastman Savings and Loan Associa- 
tion shows less money than you think it 
shoidd, watch the bulletins for informa- 
tion as to date of last pay-roll deduction. 
On the December 31st statements, the 
last pay-roll deduction credited is for 
week ending December 17th, if employed 
at Kodak Park; for week ending December 
"iith, if employed at any of the other 
plants or the Kodak Office.

IN normal times, the subject of New- 
Year's resolutions was approached, 
and surroimded with a spirit of levity, and 
that was just about as far as it went. 

Good resolutions, like many other things, 
can be overdone and so defeat their own 
purpose, but under conditions as they 
exist, a little serious thought may well be 
given to the charting of our individual 
courses for this year 19^22. 

It is not the purpose here to draft a set 
of ready-made resolutions or even to 
suggest the necessity for such a proceed- 

All of us had to do quite a bit of .serious 
thinking during the year that has passed, 
and so most of you will be in line for one 
thought which may take the form of a 
resolution if it so pleases you, that is: 
Spend time and money wis;cly. 

The average person has been far too apt 
to confound thrift with stinginess and so 
to resent any suggestions as to the value 
of thrift. Thrift does not mean the mere 
saving or hoarding of money, but spend- 
ing money wisely for what you need, so 
that you will get full value; it means also 
the planning of your income so that you 

w ill not only get what you need, but 
be able through planning to save a certain 
amount regularly. 

Have you ever wondered how^ some 
people w^ho do not make as much or any 
more than you do, make such a big 
showing with their money .'^ 

In some cases, of course, you know' that 
they are living beyond their means, but 
such cases of seeming prosperity are 
short lived and so easily detected. 

How the others continue to have and 
enjoy things that seem beyond your reach, 
appears to be a bit of a mystery and you 
credit them with some unusual gift and 
let it go at that. 

If you would really inquire into it you 
would find no mystery, and no faculty or 
facilities that you yourself do not posses. 

The "secret" is the planning ahead for 
the use of the family income. Get that — 
the use, not merely the spending. 

In another section of this issue, w'e have 
briefly reviewed the first year of the 
Eastman Savings and Loan Association; 
what it can do for you is apparent. 

Your attention is also called to the 
advantages of the budget system (see 
page 4) and how you can apply it to your 

We ivish you a happy and prosperous 
New Year.

HERBERT Hoover is responsible for 
the statement that, if all waste could 
be eliminated from American industry, the 
cost of production woidd be reduced fifty 
per cent. The idea of utilizing the by- 
product, of throwing away nothing from 
which value can possibly be derived is, to 
be sure, not new. Practically every large 
industry has been working in this direc- 
tion for some years. We are all familiar 
with the famous boast of the packing in- 
dustry, that nothing goes to waste except 
the squeal. Mr. Hoover's statement em- 
phasizes the necessity for a more inten- 
sive application of the salvage principle. 
Our own plant at Kodak Park has de- 
veloped the science of waste elimination 
to a high degree until production there, 
is now carried on with a minimum of loss 
and spoilage. The good work has not 
stopped there, however. The Kodak 
Park plant goes farther, and from the 
inevitable waste, tries to reclaim as much 
as possible. This is done by what is 
called the Salvage Department. 

The job of the Kodak Park Salvage 
Department, then, is to rescue the waste 
articles of tlje plant — that is, to save and 
put to use again those articles which 
would wind up on the scrap-pile if there 
were no such Department. The rescued 
articles, the "spoils" of the salvagers, are 
renovated and put to work again in the 
plant, or else sold on the outside. This 
latter factor makes it imperative that 
those in charge of our salvage work shall 
be men who are at all times thoroughly 
familiar with market conditions, with a 
nice of the psychological time and 
place to sell. Just take your Purchasing 
Agent's job and invert it; then, you'll 
get a slant at the selling end of the salvage 
game. During tlie war. this part of the 
problem was less difficult. Then, almost 
any kind of salvaged material found a 
ready market at a high price. Tiie chief 
difficulty was to find material fast enough 
to supply the demands of the })urchasers. 
Now, however, conditions are different 
again, and our salvage people find it ad- 

vantageous to allow material to accumu- 
late over a longer period of time, in the 
expectation of being able to sell at a 
better price. 

We can best visualize the work of this 
department by taking a little trip to the 
various salvage warehouses. These, four 
in number, are scattered here and there, 
two in the vicinity of the Ridge Road 
gate, and the other pair beyond Dewey 
Avenue in Kodak Park West. Eventu- 
ally, they will all be grouped together in 
the latter location, not far from the new 
power plant. 

We come first to the warehouse u.sed for 
the storage of paper. Besides the scrap 
paper, we find rags, rag dust, burlap, and 
cotton swee])ings. A baler packs these 
paper accumulations in large bales, which 
are then shipped away, whenever the 
accumulations reach carload lots. 

Not far from the paper storage, we 
find another large building formerly used 
as a lumber warehouse. Here, there 
seems to be no limit to the Aariety of 
rescued articles. Piles of wooden boxes 
tower up to the ceiling. In one corner 
stands a truck from another local factory 
loading up with boxes which will there 
be used again. Other boxes are broken 
up, and sold as lumber. In another 
corner is a quantity of excelsior, some 
baled, some still loose in the pile. 

Another thing of which the layman 
would seldom think is cork. Behind the 
construction workers on new buildings, 
the Salvage Department picks up small 
pieces of cork left over from, for instance, 
packing heating pipes. This cork is 
ground u]) and kei)t in storage here, avail- 
able for use on a similar job at any time. 
The cost of cork thus salvaged is about one 
and one-half cents per pound. Purcha.sed 
on the open market, it would cost four or 
five cents. 

In this building, we also fintl empty 
cement bags which have a re-sale value of 
about fifteen cents each. 

There are piles of emj)ty l)arrels. among 
them something new in the barrel line. 




one made out of paper. Many of these 
barrels come in filled with chemicals. 
Here, too, is a small quantity of scrap 
tin — at present, unsalable, though, during 
the war, it was unobtainable for love or 

Next we come to a little room oft' in one 
corner which looks as though it might 
have been the office of the hmiber com- 
pany which once occupied the building. 
And here we find a man busy folding, 
shaking and brushing big bags made of 
Canton flannel. Inquiring "why," we 
learn that these bags are used for filtering 
the air which is let into various buildings 
about the plant. This filtration, as you 
know, is necessary to exclude any impuri- 
ties which might damage some of our 
sensitive products in process of manu- 
facture. When these flannel bags become 
dirty, they are sent to the laundry, and 
thence to this Salvage Department ware- 
house where they are carefully brushed. 
This brushing brings up the nap, and 
makes the bag fit for use again. Some- 
times tiny holes creep in which must be 
repaired before the bag is put back into 
service. Of course, they won't last for- 
ever anyway, but this cleaning and brush- 
ing process gives them a much longer lease 
of life. 

And now we take quite a long "hike" 
over to Kodak Park West. Here, at the 
north side of the main road, w^e come 
upon an open space where are piled big 
metal containers, painted black. These 
metal cylinders are perhaps fifteen feet 
long, and a foot or more in diameter. We 
learn that they are containers for oxygen 
or ammonia. These cylinders are worth in 
the neighborhood of thirty dollars each. 
It doesn't pay to lose them, either, for 
every one is billed to the company when 
it is shipped, and must be returned if we 
are to receive credit. The same ruling 
applies to the big ten-gallon carboys 
which come in filled with acid- In addi- 
tion, this open-air storage has a variety 
of metal barrels and other containers, all 
with a high re-sale value- 

Near at hand, we find another storage 

building containing machine parts, suit- 
able for replacement purposes, and some 
old machines, not now fit for service. The 
nickeled parts are well protected with 
"dope" to prevent rust. If you don't 
know just what this "dope" is, ask some 
fellow who has been in the army or the 
navy and has had the job of cleaning up a 
rifle or an automatic as it comes out of 
storage. He'll tell you all about it. At 
stated intervals, the contents of this 
building are carefully gone over by an 
Inventory Committee, which determines 
which items shall be kept in stock, and 
which shall be dismantled or sold. 

The farthest west of the four buildings 
occupied by the Department is the Metal 
Stores Building. Here are all kinds of 
scrap metal, neatly separated into piles, or 
stored in bins. There are piles of scrap 
steel and iron, and bins containing red 
brass, yellow brass, lead, copper, or metal 
filings. A ready market for these metals 
is found with local junk dealers. 

Out in the open again, we find our- 
selves facing piles of scrap lumber. They 
remind one of the parade ground of an 
army cantonment along about November, 
1917, when the "cost-plus" contractors 
had about finished their construction 
work, and before they had started to 
"police up." This scrap hmiber, hauled 
hither from construction jobs in all parts 
of the plant, was formerly sold to em- 
ployees for $1.00 a cord. It contained 
many good pieces from which the pur- 
chaser could rig up a porch, garage, or 
storm-house- Now, however, all this 
lumber is sorted before it is sold, and 
much of it proves satisfactory for outside 
construction. The residue makes excel- 
lent firewood. 

One of the most interesting cogs in the 
salvage machine is the chap they call the 
"Pick-up Man. " His job is to make the 
rounds of the plants at stated intervals, 
and "all is fish that comes to his net." 
On the tag end of construction jobs, you'll 
see him, picking up tools or scraps of 
materials which have been discarded or 
overlooked, or wandering through build- 



ings with an eye open for anything of 
value. An accurate record of his findings 
is kept, together with tabulated values. 

To many of us, this "fussing around" 
with worn-out, dirty, discarded stuff 
seems like a sordid job, indeed. So much 
so that we are tempted to ask: "Wliat's 
the use? Whv bother?" It is, however, 

by such careful attention to the often un- 
pleasant details that the waste of which 
Mr. Hoover complains can be eliminated, 
and we have a right to feel proud of 
Kodak Park's accomplishments in this 

Is it worth while — or not? We'll put 
the answer up to you. 


WHEN the boss comes into the place, 
he very often neither looks to the 
right nor to the left, but goes to his desk 
and immediately becomes absorbed in 
the work at hand. 

If the organization, or department, hap- 
pen to be a large one, a good many of the 
employees may feel that he does not know 
that they exist. Then comes a day when 
you (or the chap next to you) are moved up 
to a better job, and you wonder "how 
come. " 

The boss is ever on the lookout for good 
material for the bigger jobs, and you may 
rest assured that, if you have shown any 
signs of promise whatsoever, your qualifi- 
cations have been carefully considered. 

You may feel that you possess the quali- 
fications for the better job, but will your 
ideas and those of the boss coincide? In 
Forbes Magazine, one executive tells how he 
selects men, and his remarks may prove

"In picking executive understudies, 
three qualifications are looked for, tact, 
talent, hard work. The most important 
of these is tact, though the candidate must 
possess the other two as well if he is to be 
big enough to fill the bill. 

"By tact, I mean his ability to handle 
men, to impose his ideas and personality 
upon those under him without giving 
offense, to keep his temper in spite of 
provocation to lose it. to be popular with 
his fellows. " 

"When I notice a man in the ranks who 
seems to possess this quality, I make it nn- 
business to find out if he has talent for 
any j^art of the business — mechanical. 

financial, and so on. Has he made any 
worthwhile suggestions about his work? 
Is he merely up to the standard of his job? 
Or, is he above it? 

"Then I want to know how hard he 
works. Has he ever kicked about over- 
time? Does he ever do more than he is 
actually required to do? Is he late in 
reporting and early in quitting? How many 
hours does he miss in a year? 

"When a worker has tact, it is a pretty 
good indication that he has character. 
When he has talent, it is a sign that he is 
keen mentally. WTien he is willing to 
work without kicks, it is a token that he is 
ambitious and finds more in the work than 
a mere job. The man who can combine 
tact with hard work, can make up for a 
deficiency in talent, provided he has some 
talent. Because a man is a foreman, or has 
been picked to understudy a foreman, does 
not signify necessarily that- he is the best 
workman in his shop. Tact is not essential 
in a good workman; but it is essential in a 
foreman or anv other executive. "

the "School for Safety Supervisors" which 
opens at the Rochester Chamber of Com- 
merce on January 13th. The course will 
include thirteen lectures under the di- 
rection of the National Safety Council 
with excellent speakers and frequent use 
of motion pictures. If you want to get 
in on this, now is the time to sign up.

A BARGAIN is a bargain only when 
you require wliat you buy. If you 
purchase an article because the price 
attracted you and the need for the thing 
does not exist, then the transaction was 
not a bargain, except for the shopkeeper's 
pocket," so remarks a writer in "House 
and Garden." 

He continues: "Thrift has been a badly 
used word. " Up to 1917, Americans rather 
looked down on the word, and avoided 
using it. As for practicing thrift, such a 
proceeding was beneath one's class. 
"Theodore Roosevelt gave the word 
"thrift" a splendid definition- -"Thrift 
is common sense applied to spending." 

"Common sense applied to spending" 
sums up the whole duty of the house 
manager. Common sense is keeping one- 
self balanced, watching your step, as the 
trolley conductors say. 

"The first way to apply common sense 
is not to buy too hurriedly. Do not 
telephone — shop . 

"I know a woman whose husband has 
an income of $15,000 a year, and every 
morning of the week — except Sundays — 
she goes out on her tour of markets and 
stores, selects her meat, watches the 
proper cut and sees it weighed. She 
talks with the grocer, examines the eggs, 
peers into the lettuce head, chooses her 
celery bunch and sees to her order being 
made ready for sending." 

"This woman has become an expert. 
She is not cheated, nor overcharged. 
Her shopping occupies about an hour of 
her morning, but she makes a profit in 
that hour. She also saves time in other 
purchases she makes. x\mong these are 
canned goods, or as the trade calls them, 
package goods. She is an expert, and 
being this, she relies upon experts. 

"America is the one country of the 
world that has developed package goods 
the farthest. Consequently, in spite of 
what statisticians declare, it is probably 
the cheapest, dollar for dollar, to live in. " 

"Buying as this woman does, the raw 
materials for her needs, she must rely 

upon her knowledge. This came from 
experience, for she started, as most 
American brides begin the managing of 
their homes, with hardly a rudimentary 
knowledge of housekeeping. But she 
plunged in, and learned, and the shop- 
keepers respect her and serve her. On 
her side of the bargain she also respects 
the knowledge of others. This she shows 
in the buying of reliable goods, which 
have authority." 

"Mr. Roosevelt's definition of thrift is 
'true, but the power of that definition for 
good comes from the authority of the 
man who uttered it. Exactly so with the 
authority of goods which have back of 
them the reputation of their producers." 

"Bargains are not always bargains. 
Sometimes in season, bargains sail into 
view and should be hailed and boarded 
like swiftly disappearing ships. But 
authority is always authority, and when 
it believes in itself, authority for its own 
sake makes good." 

"You can purchase a cake of authorita- 
tive soap, or a piece of furniture, or a 
coat or pair of shoes, or an electric heater, 
and, if it carries a good name, you can 
rest assured of getting your money back 
when it does not make good. And you 
can be reasonably content that such 
products have in them good materials 
well put together. But you cannot 
expect such assurances from things that 
come casually out of an open barrel." 

"Summed up, common sense in spend- 
ing is knowing what you want and going 
to the right place to get it; seeing what 
you buy when you buy it; assuring your- 
self that it carries the guarantee of an 
expert; and apportioning your expendi- 
ture properly among the needful re- 
quirements of your home according to 
the best information your budget fig- 
ures give you." 

The great trouble with the school of 
experience is that the course is so long 
that the graduates are too old to go to 





The Third Annual Exhibit of the Kodak Park 
Fur and Feather Chib, held in the Kodak Park 
Assembly Hall on December Gth, 7th, 8th and 9th, 
proved a conspicuous success from every point of 
view. The 350 entries were made by fifty-two 
members whose stock represented nearly fifty 
varieties of fur and feather-bearing animals and 

To the Flower City Poultry Association, the 
Club is greatly indebted for the use of pens and 
coops as well as to F. O. Guenthner, president of 
the Flower City Association, for his interest in 
acting as judge in the Poultry Division. Frank 
W. Armstrong, of the Kodak Park Club, selected 
the winners among the fur-bearing stock. 

The special feature of the show was the Egg- 
Laying Contest. This was a new attraction and 
created much interest. Ten entries, consisting of 
five birds to a coop, were received. These coops 
were kept locked and a record of the results made 
from day to day. At the close of the contest on 
Friday evening, a triple tie existed, the entries of 
Frank W. Armstrong, Howard Carey and Meine 
Lighthart each having accounted for fourteen eggs. 
When it came to the weigh-off, Frank W. Arm- 
strong was the lucky man, his \-ictory being a 
matter of grains. 

Another interesting attraction was the display 
pens. One of the most imusual of these was en- 
tered by RoVjert ('aine of the Fire Department, 

in which an Airedale terrier, two chickens, a rabbit 
and a cat were housed together in a little five-foot 
pen, all on the best of terms, and each attending 
to his own business. 

R. F. Punnett showed a fine collection of Rhode 
Island ^^'hites, while the thirty-two pound 
"gobbler," belonging to Rufus Whittier, received 
its full share of attention. A number of first honors 
went to Fred Hable, of the Cine Slitting Depart- 
ment, whose Silver Wyandotte pullet was adjudged 
the champion bird of tiie Exhibit, while another one 
of his entries took first prize in the pouter pigeon 
class. In addition to these, Mr. Habel's pen was 
judged the best at the exhibit. 

The silver cups offered by the K. P. A. A. M^ere 
awarded to Fred Hable, Joseph Jansen, Ward 
Bathwick, Jules Hondt, Frank X. Hauser, and 
Frank W. Armstrong. 

To the following committee belongs a good share 
of the credit for the success of this year's show: 
Frank X. Hauser, Charles Light, James Jansen, 
Howard Carey, Fred Habel, Frank Armstrong, 
and Charles Smith.

We are sure that one of the reasons for the bifi 
"turn outs" at the Foremen's CUib dinner meetings 
is found in the dinners Fred Grastorf "sets up." 
Another reason is the speakers. At the December 
meeting held on Thursday, the 10th. Professor B. 
R. Baumgardt addressed the Chib, his subject be- 
ing "The Frontiers of the Universe and Recent 
Triumphs in Celestial Photography." 

Professor Baumgardt, aside from possessing a 
thorough knowledge of his subject, has that ability 
to place it before his hearers in a most comprehen- 
sive way. His talk was very much enjoyed by 
everyone present. 

The newly organized Kodak Park Double ^lale 
Quartet, under the direction of George Engelhardt, 
made its first appearance at this meeting. To 
say that they are fine by no means expresses 
the hit they made. Let's have them at every 

Following the regular program the annual election 
of officers for the year 1922 was held. John 
Schaefl^er, whose able leadership during the present 
term has been a large factor in the Club's success, 
was re-elected by a unanimous vote. All the other 
oflBcers were also re-elected. 

Arrangements are under way for the Annual 
Ladies' Party to be held January l!2th. Everyone 
will remember the good time enjoyed last year, 
and the Committee surely is not considering 
"falling down" on this one big annual. Don't fail 
to bring the wife or lady friend. 


It is somewhat discouraging, after working hard 
to build up a winning combination, to find it almost 
impossible to obtain o[)ponents. This is abf)ut the 


Though the Hobby Club is still in its infancy, a 
stranger viewing the collections entered at their 
first Exhibit held in conjunction with the Fur and 
Feather Show would have believed it an organiza- 
tion of long standing. At present, there are only 
about twenty-five members, nearly very one of 
whom participated in the first Exhibit. 

The coin collection of Thomas ^Murray consisted 
of about one hundred and fifty coins, including the 
"Widow's Mite" of Biblical note, dating back to 
the year 29 A. D., as well as a set of four Siberian 
coins from the reign of Empress Catherine II. 
Ralf Smith showed almost a complete collection of 
the U. S. big penny. The collection of coins entered 
by Perry Wright attracted considerable notice. coins had been hoarded in China and Asia, 
and were for over one hundred years. The 
recent rise in the price of silver resulted, liowever, 
in their being l)rought to light, and they were sold 
by weight, thus l)ringing somewhat more than their 
actual value as regular legal tender. 

The collections of Paul L;inge included many 
species of butterflies, and also a complete set of 
mail stamps of all issues to date. 

Howard Carey showed a fine collection of stamps, 
gathered with a view to obtaining the most beautiful 
specimens of stamps in existence. 

Collections of Indian relics, arrow heads, minerals 
and fossils were exhibited l)y Earle II. Potter, Stuart 
Carroll and I^eroy F. Fairchild. ]\Ir. Carroll's 
collection included a rare Banner Stone used during 
Indian times as a sign of authority, and carried 
before the chiefs in council. 


New players with girls' baskelliall team 

situation of the girls' basketball team as far as 
local teams are concerned, and it begins to look 
as if Manager Marguerite Ellis woidd have to 
depend entirely on out-of-towii teams for dates this 
season. It would be an easy matter to keep the 
team busy playing in other cities where their reputa- 
tion has made them a big drawing card. A few- 
games will necessarily be played away from home, 
but the principal object in organizing the Kodak 
Park team is to provide recreation for the Kodak 
Park people. Therefore, home games, or at least 
games in Rochester, are most desirable. 

An effort is being made to arrange games with the 
Oneida Commimity girls' team of Sherrill, N. Y'. 
Arrangements are also under way for games with 
the Duchess girls of Warren, Ohio, and the Douglas 
girls of Pittsbm-g, Pennsylvania. The latter will 
undoubtedly be a very big attraction in view of the 
fact that Kodak Park defeated tliis team last year 
by a single point. 

Two new players have been added to the Kodak 
Park squad this season and give promise of becom- 
ing valuable members of the team. They are 
Marion DeBurgermister and Helen Conover. Both 
of these girls have had considerable experience. 

An effort will again be made to bring the Clark- 
Munies, World's Champions, to Rochester some 
time after the first of the vear. 

Salem Evangelical Church was the scene of a 
very pretty wedding on Thanksgiving Eve at <i 
o'clock, when Marcella Spiniller of the Pay Roll 
(Community Chest Division) was united in mar- 
riage to James Pickworth. Among the pre- 
nuptials was a niisoellaneous shower given by Hazel 
Wood and Lillian Dentinger, which was attended 
by the girls of the Pay Roll. After a brief trip 
Mr. and Mrs. Pickworth will reside at 80 Ohio 
Street. The Department heartily wishes them 
much joy and happiness. 




The f Christmas party held Friday, December IGth, 
was a regular Yiiletide affair in every respect. The 
decorations were red and green with Clnustmas trees 
distributed here and there to make the picture 
t>picall\' seasonable. At the far end of the liall 


over fifty trees were arranged to represent a forest, 
with a small church in the distance. John S. Har- 
mon and the members of the Decoration Com- 
mittee are to be complimented on the artistic 
effect created. 

Each person entering the hall received a small 
sleigh bell on a ribbon. These, carried during the 
evening, added considerably to the Christmas tone. 
During intermission several select numbers sung 
by the Rocliester Operatic Quartet, were very well 
received. Following this, several prizes were 

James A. Hart, chairman of this dance, instilled 
in his committee a spirit of enthusiasm akin to his 
own, which perhaps accounted for the tremendous 
success of our third party. 

Equally enjoyable was the "Harvest Moonlight" 
dance held November 18th. A decidedly clever 
arrangement of colors gave one the impression of a 
beautiful moonlight evening with stars and harvest 
moons in prominence. The subdued lighting effect 
achieved by placing paper moons over the lights did 
much to add an autumnal tone to the affair. Corn- 
stalks and pumpkins around the pillars and refresh- 
ment booths completed the picture. 

Anna Sharp, well known Kodak Park soloist, 
rendered a number of solos to the accompaniment 
of the orchestra during the evening. During 
intermission, gas-filled toy balloons were distributed 
about the hall, one hundred of these being num- 
bered. Those receiving the marked balloons were 
presented with boxes of candy. 

Chairman "Ben" MacMillan and the committee 
that assisted him are to be congratulated on their 
success in making our "Harvest Moonlight" a most 
lively dance and entertainment.

The Kodak Park soccer players and officials 
are to be congratulated on the fine showing made 
during the fall series of the R. & D. League. At 
the close of the spring series the Park team was in 
third place, and further handicapped through the 
loss of several of its best players. Prospects for 
fall did not look very promising. However, they 
fought their way through in fine style, setting up a 
local record by winning every one of the regular 
scheduled games. Most remarkable has been the 
playing of the Kodak Park defense, only one goal 
having been scored through them, while the Park 
forwards accounted for thirty points against their 
opponents. To select any one individual for special 
mention would hardly Ije fair, as every man on the 
team has had an equal part in winning the games. 

Kodak Park was tied with the Celtics for first 
honors in the League, but a game played at West 
High field, December 18th, resulted in a win for 
the Celtics by a score of 2-1. 


Kodak Park's team in the newly formed Kodak 
Basketball League has lost to Hawk-Eye and 
defeated Camera Works in the first two games of 
the schedule. Our boys lost the opening game by 
three points, but a poor start is better than a poor 
ending, and with all due respect to the efforts, 
ambitions and designs of the other three managers, 
Kodak Park is going to win the pennant for the 
season of 1921-1922. 

George Neal is Manager of the Park outfit and 
Jack Brightman, Captain. We have some good 
men on the squad, including Thompson, Captain 
"Jack" and his brother, "Charlie." Games are 
being played every Wednesday night, a double- 
header, and afterwards there is dancing, ^^'hy not 
come down to the next game and see what our 
team can do.^ 

Harley W. Quackenbush of Kodak Park West 
wishes to thank his friends at Kodak Park for the 
gift which they presented him on his return to 
work. He also appreciates the work of the Medi- 
cal Department for medical attention received 
during his recent illness. 


The Kodak Park Departmental Basketball League 
was reorganized for the season of 1921-1922 with 
six teams in the fold: Research, Office, Building 
.50, Soccer Club, Film, and Engineering and 
^laintenance. Harold Hudson of Building ;? was 
elected ])resident, and ('harles Flagg, vice-presi- 

Under the rule adopted this season, players in 
departments represented in the League, must, if 
they play at all, affiliate with their own team. 
Those working in departments not entered in the 
League may nuike application to play with any one 
of the teams, which will be approved under certain 

Departmental League matches will be played 
on Monday e\ening and Saturday afternoon. The 
objective is a silver cu]) offered by the K. P. A. A.

The first of a series of Community Nights 
given by the K. P. A. A. was held on Tuesday 
evening, December 13th, in the Assembly Hall. 
Between eight and nine hundred persons were 
present. The program was opened with two 
professional vaudeville acts. Following this, a 
Harold Lloyd comedy of three reels was shown. 
Then the hall was cleared and dancing enjoyed 
until midnight. The first number on the dance 
program was an old-fashioned Paul Jones, followed 
by a square set, the balance of the program being 
made up of waltzes, two-steps and fox-trots. A 
number of those present took advantage of the 
facilities provided and played pedro, five hundred 
and pinochle on the .second floor of the building. 
Prizes were awarded the winners. 

The outlined plan for these Community Nights 
gives promise of satisfactory results. In order 
that everyone may have equal enjoyment, and to 
avoid overcrowding the membership has been di\'id- 
ed into divisions, and each group of members has 
been allotted a certain night. A ticket admitting 
two persons is issued to each member of the Asso- 
ciation upon application, and showing of his mem- 
bership card. Those working on shift work and 
unable to be present on the date designated will be 
provided with a special card, which will admit them 
on any one of the nights they may be free. 

Those who were not included in the invitation for 
the first entertainment are a.sked to be patient, as 
there will be a Community Night for everyone. 
The Committee in charge has planned for your 
enjoyment, and we trust that everyone will take 
advantage of the opportunity and come. 

Emulsion Coating Department extends its deepest 
sj-mpathy to the family of the late T. J. Orman, 
who died Saturday, December 3rd. 

George Cannan, general foreman of the Plate 
Department, is the proud daddy of a bright little 
son. William Allen Cannan was born on October 
30th. Congratulations, George! 


Shortly after the first of the year the Kodak Park 
Boy Scout Troop Number 50 will celebrate the 
third anniversary of its organization. From every 
viewpoint the Troop has been most successful, due 
both to the interest taken by the members and the 
efforts of the leaders. In the beginning member- 
ship was limited to the immediate family of 
Kodak employees. This was done to give our 
own boys first chance. There is at present room 
for a few more boys. Realizing the Troop to be a 
factor for good and the need for Scout training in 
this section, the charter has been declared open to 
any one living near Kodak Park, >mtil such time 
as the membership limit has been reached, when 
the original restrictions will again he imposed. 

At the i)rcscnt time the Troop is in need of an 
instructor in bugling. This means but one-half 
hour a week for a period of two to three months — 
7:00 to 7:.'50 each Tuesday evening and a call is 
made for some ex-army or ex-navy man to train 
.some of the boys in the work. H. H. Tozier, 
Building No. 26 will be pleased to hear from anyone 
who will volunteer to help. 




The November issue of the Kodak Park Sugges- 
tion Bulletin informed us of some large awards for 
suggestions adopted during the month of October. 
A total of $1. ()().). 00 was paid for 74 suggestions. 
This amount included two awards of $500.00 each, 
one of $250.00, another of $100.00. and several 
others of slightly lesser denominations. 


Winner of Large Suggestion .\ward 

R. J. Scott of the Power Electrical Department, 
and John C. Wegner of the Cine Slitting Department 
were the fortunate persons to receive the $500.00 
awards. Both of these suggestions showed marked 
ingenuity and effected substantial savings, particu- 
larly that of Mr. Scott's, who worked out a very 
clever solution to a jjarticular problem. 

The Suggestion System affords similar oppor- 
tunity to every employee at Koflak Park, the only 
necessary requisite being the ability to spot the 
opportunity when it arises. Why not try your 
hand at the Suggestion System? 


A very enjoyable party was held Ijy the employees 
of the Kodak Park Restaurant at the Knights of 
Malta Hall, Saturday, November 19th. About 
seventy-five persons were present, including the 
wives, husbands and friends of the employees. 

The affair was the outcome of the postponement 
of the annual Summer Outing, which could not be 
held for several reasons and the good time enjoyed 
more than made up for the previous disappointment. 

Fred Packard acted as toastmaster of the dinner 
which was .served at 7 o'clock. The entertainment 
which followed, was afforded by Patterson, well- 
known black-faced artist, and the Amphion Quartet. 


Three hundred and fifty employees of the Emul- 
sion Coating Department attended their First 
Annual Banquet held on Saturday, December 17th, 
in the Recreation Building. Last winter an anniver- 
sary dinner was given in honor of Fred B. VanAUan 
and George Beedham upon their completion of 
twenty-five years' continuous service with the 
company, and the good time enjoyed by those who 
attended resulted in a persistent demand for 
another "get-together" this year. 

Dinner was served at 7:30. During the meal 
music was furnished by Pagan's orchestra, and 
singing, under the leadership of William Thompson, 
occupied its place between the courses. 

A very enjoyal)le program of entertainment had 
been prepared for the remainder of the evening. 
The first number was the "Pathe News" for the 
current week, after which "Black, the Man ^\^lO 
Grows," entertained with his very unusual stvmts. 
F. L. Holden in "An Evening on the Plantation," 
worked black face in an amusing monologue. A 
professional vaudeville act from one of the local 
theaters was also numbered among the entertainers. 
"The Day Dolls," a brain child of our friend, 
"Doc" Yates, was a surprise in every sense of the 
word, and "Doc' has erected one more monument 
to himself. "Filmland." a motion picture showing 
the manufacture of Kodak Film, completed the 
evening's program. 

Everyone had a "mighty good time" and senti- 
ment was unanimously in favor of another banquet 
in IQ'-Zi. The Committee in charge consisted of 
Fred B. VanAllan, Chairman, Lincoln Burrows, 
Donald McMaster, "Dave'" Babcock, "Joe" 
Burton, John Young, and James Lee. Present 
at the affair as guests of the Emulsion Coating 
Department were James H. Haste, A. F. Sulzer, 
C. K. Flint, H. LeB. Grav, C. F. Hutchison, H. E. 
Van Der Hoef, R. A. Weber, H. D. Haight, A. 
E. Williams, P. C. Seel and F. H. Boyer. 


A keen spirit of rivalry exists in all three of the 
Kodak Park Bowling Leagues. The members of 
each team are trying to hide their determination to 
win beneath a bit of friendly banter, but they go 
into each match with a "we mean business" spirit. 
Some of the teams have strengthened up a bit 
during the past few weeks, which has made the 
races even tighter than earlier indications prom- 
ised. A most valuable addition to any team is 
Jack Casey, who has joined his fellow bowlers in 
the Film Department. In the K. P. A. A. League, 
the Ponies are still a few points in the lead, and 
the Steel Shed is having things its own way in the 
Yard outfit.

The monthly dinner meeting of the Kodak Park 
Camera Club was held on Wednesday, December 
14th. John I. ( 'rabtree. of the Research Laboratory 
gave an illustrated talk on "How to Alake 

At the January meeting officers will he elected 
for the year 192'£. Early in February a campaign 
will be launched to increase the membership to at 
least 300. 





It is a simple matter to smile and perpetrate a 
poor pun on ''Coach Roach's" title, but you can't 
laugh off the fact that "Bill's" Hawk-Eye team had 
the call in the first two games which they played 
in the Kodak Basketball League. 

They say that even "Bill" was mihliy surprised 
when his tossers turned in a 16-13 win over the 
husky Parkers on November !23d, but it was straight 
basketball that won. 

The dearth of figures in Captain Johnson'^ 
score column may indicate that he is slow in round- 
ing into form, but he is just as fast as ever and 
literally a tower of strength in the team-work. 
We refuse to worry about him just yet. 

Ingleby and Prentice, who played the forward 
positions in the opening games, haven't hit their 
stride either. Both of them, and especially "Chuck" 
Prentice, have suffered from some terrible breaks. 
They may be expected to settle down and overcome 
the jinx before long. 

All Hawk-Eye was agog the day after Thanks- 
giving over Wilbur Woodams' rampage in the 

Kodak Park game. He scored eight of Hawk-Eye's 
sixteen points, all from a guard position, and was 
all over the floor spilling the opposition's attacks. 
He repeated his performance in the second game — 
that with Main Office — caging four shots from 
almost hopeless angles. And he had another 
counter in the air when the bell rang to end the 

"Benny" Levine, his running mate, isn't exactly 
a slouch either. Besides being an exceedingly bad 
man to meet when one is trying to advance down 
the court, he alternates with Woodams in slipping 
down the floor and striking terror into his oppo- 
nents. "Benny" looks as good as ever. 

Wiedman and Van Lare are the only other men 
who were played at the start of the season, and it is 
too early to judge these two old stand-bys and the 
rest of the squad accurately. It is exident, how- 
ever, that the basketball outfit as a whole is "up and 
at 'em" — and at them hard — and with the support 
which the men deserve, they should be able to finish 
the schedule at the top of the ladder.

They say that the undertakings for whose success 
■ne have the greatest fears usually turn out the best. 
"\Miether that can be accepted as a rule of life 
concerns us little, so long as our example turned out 
the right way. Virginia Earl and "Billy" Wilson 
nearly had conniptions during the days that immed- 
iately preceded the Y. W. C. A. Kaleidoscope on 
December 7th, and yet when it was all over, it was 
freely admitted that the Hawk-Eye Ekco Club 
girls had put on one of the very best stimts of all. 

The program called it a "Song Medley." Fanny 
McClellan opened the number when she appeared 
in appropriate costume, to the tune of "Darling, 
I am Growing Old." Fanny was somewhat mis- 
cast, and the make-up artists had to wear out their 
pencils to make her look the part. She carried a 
frowsy member of the feline tribe, which soon put 
the audience in good humor by its antics. Then 
Eloise Earl danced in with what was claimed to be 
"The Last Rose of Summer." That was, of coiuse, 
quite an achievement, because December 7th is 
exceedingly late in the summer. Eloise not only 
looked very well, but danced likewise. 

She was followed by Hilda Specht, dressed as a 
boy and carrying "The Old Oaken Bucket" (that 
is to say, a herring pail in disguise). Close upon 
her heels "Yankee Doodle," in the person of Grace 
Watson, rode to town on her beautiful wooden pony. 
Needless to state she was a full-fledged "Macaroni," 
from her brown velvet trousers to the feather in her 
hat. Then— (O Shades of the Midnight Frolic!)— 
came Virginia P^arl in an abbreviated "Bubbles" 
costume, dancing and tossing colored balloons to 
the audience. 

Mae Ferguson typified "School Days." She had 
with her two well-known school girl attributes, 
a bimdle of Vjooks and, what is usually more popular. 

a peppermint stick. Mae's was big enough to use 
as a cane. Next winsome Hattie Batzing in a 
ruffled dress, stepped shyly across the stage imper- 
sonating the famous "Mary," with the well-known 
little woolly lamb in her arms. "Billy" Wilson 
followed as "Old Black Joe." Joe was old that 
night, beyond a doubt, for "he" hobbled in very 
distressingly with the aid of a cane. The costume 
was most effective, albeit some of the snow-white 
locks came loose from their moorings. Margaret 
Kiernan made a hit when slie entered to the tune of 
"Keep the Home Fires Burning." She was clad 
in white and carried a service flag. It was left to 
Ruth Pierce, however, to bring down the house 
with "Over There.' ' She wore the uniform of an 
army lieutenant. 

That isn't saying, however, that the rest of the 
Hawk-Eye program was an anti-climax. Olive 
Kellett's "Wearing of the Green" was distinctly 
refreshing. She wore a fluffy gown of appropriate 
hue and danced a very acceptable Irish gig. Doris 
Sanford again aroused the onlookers' patriotic 
ardor as "The Rose of Xo Man's Land," her cos- 
tume as a Red Cross nurse being very effective. 

Anna Krenzer closed the performance as "Red 
Wing." She had all the trappings of a big chief, 
and executed a regular Indian dance to perfection. 

Anna Kohler presided at the piano. She was 
one of those who had worried about the outcome of 
the affair, and its success was due in no small part 
to her playing. 

There was one more Hawk-Eyete present that 
we know of. That was "Al" Hardies, who tootled 
most engagingly on his saxophone for the dancing 
that followed. Leave it to "Al" to step in where 
ordinarv males fear to tread.

Tina Drummond and Frances Pullen were 
hostesses at a get-together party of a nimiber of 
Hawk-Eye girls on the night of November 30th, 
in the girls' dining room. To begin with the girls 
had had no supper so that it is presumed they were 
ready for a good meal as well as a good time. Re- 
ports indicate that they were not disappointed on 
either score. Hy way of entertainment Alice Gears 
and Ella Steckholz collaborated in a musical selec- 
tion that is said to have hit the high spots. Then 
the girls indulged in a miniature songfest. The 
Pitch Button Department's famous fortune teller, 
Mrs. Welch, added to the enjoyment of the evening 
with a number of alluring projihecies, and is reported 
to have shown particular skill in ministering to the 
wants of the honiesick and the love-lorn. 

The party closed with dancing, and broke up at 
about eleven. 

We are not all as fortunate as Fred Altman, who 
went all the way to Des Moines, Iowa, to visit 
relatives during the Holidays. 

We extend our sympathy to Anna McCarthy of 
the Cementing Dci)artment, who suffered a jiainful 
accident while Ijoarding a street car on I)eceml)er 
7th. We trust that she will have a speedy recovery. 

Edward Murrell of the Mounting Department 
left us on December 8th, after a jjcriod of eight and 
one-half years of faithful service. We wish "Eddie" 
the greatest success in his new venture. 


Loretta Ereth, Daisy Shoemaker, Ella Wienecke 
and Anna Enders, all of the Cleaning and Inspecting 
Department, are members of a Pedro Clul) recently 
organized. The girls meet every Friday evening to 
play cards, taste each other's best cooking, and 
incidentally to indulge in a little light gossip, that 
gentle sport so dear to the hearts of the ladies. 
Loretta is the founder and president of the Club. 


John Vass and Gregory George recently became 
full-fledged members of Uncle Sam's family, 
extend hearty congratulations. 


A daughter, Dorothy Elsie, was born to Mr. 
and Mrs. Theodore Luke on November 11th. 
Weight, eight pounds and seven ounces. We offer 
our congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Luke and 
welcome a new Hawk-Eyelet. 

Frieda Topel is practically recovered from an 
operation which she underwent early in November. 
We hope that this issue will find her back in Mr. 
Newman's Department in the best of health and 
spirits. Schanz of the Cleaning and Inspecting 
Department, lost her mother on November .30th. 
We wish to express Hawk-Eye's deepest sympathy. 

Iodine is a good first aid for cuts and scratches, 
but do not pour it on or soak a bandage with it, as 
too much iodine may cause a serious burn.

Pot-hooks and shift keys were relegated to 
temporary oblivion on the afternoon of December 
3rd, when the girls of the Stenographic Department 
had their first matinee party, followed by a snpper 
at Teall's. Mrs. Armstrong, Miss McAnaney and 
Miss Boyd, who were the guests of the afternoon, 
really appeared to enjoy it all as thoroughly as did 
the girls themselves. 

For a time it was feared that two members of 
the party had failed to negotiate safely the maze of 
traffic at "Broadway and •l''2nd" (Rochester), but 
Marion Lawn and Agnes Opdyke finally arrived at 
Teall's just in time to save the Police Department 
a lot of trouble searching for two more lost children. 

The chairman, Ruth Graves, was ably assisted 
by Emily Keinert. Eleanor Shannon, and Florence 
Murphy on the Ticket Committee, and Ruth Kriner, 
Margaret Jack, and Jessie Gunderson, on the Supper 
Committee. Although this was the first affair of 
the kind which has been attempted by the Depart- 
ment, the premiere proved an vmqualified success. 

In addition to the guests, the girls acting on 
committees, and the two aforesaid "lost children," 
the party included: Mabel Cummings, Helen 
Greenwood, Mildred Hiett, Katherine Kern, Ethel 
Leach, Adelaide Murphy, Mildred Palmer, Marcelle 
Vuillier, Erma Wall, Margaret Dyer, and Elizabeth 


On Thanksgiving Day, Dorothy Heinrich of the 
Mail Department was married to Harry Williams. 
The bride and groom will make their home in 
California. Dorothy has many friends at Kodak 
Office who extend their best wishes for her happiness. 

Among the entertainments in her honor was a 
dinner given by the members of the Department 
in the Girls' Rest Room. Games and dancing 
concluded an enjoyable evening, and Dorothy was 
presented with a silver chop platter. 

Mrs. William McGahan, formerly Ethel Ludwig, 
also entertained for Dorothv at a towel shower. 


At the third regular meeting of the Kodak 
Progress Society, six new members were admitted. 
In accordance with the plan adopted at the previous 
meeting to study the several departments of the 
company and their relation to the Accounting 
Department, Mr. Goodwin explained the work of 
the Stock Department and told the members how 
goods are received, checked, and inventoried. The 
work of the Special Billing Department was covered 
in a short talk by Mr. Vayo. 


The following employees were awarded for sug- 
gestions adopted during November and December. 
Each of these employees has helped to increase the 
efficiency of the Kodak organization. Although 
none of the awards were enormous, it must be 
remembered that "big oaks from little acorns grow" 
and that ideas developed later on by them will 
probably prove even more valuable.

"College Days," a musical comedy now being 
rehearsed by the Glee Club, is progressing rapidly, 
and it seems safe to predict that its production, 
scheduled for some time in February, will earn for 
the Club an envial)le reputation. 

The principals have all been carefully selected by a 
competent committee, and this committee feels 
highly elated at the excellence of the cast. 

Keep your eyes open for the date. "College 
Days" is one of the events of the winter which you 
surely don't want to miss. 


Mrs. Porter Elizabeth Ritchey, formerly General 
Manager of the Home Savings Department of the 
X^ew York State Savings Bank Association and now 
Manager of the Service Department of one of the 
savings banks in this city, has been giving a .series 
of talks in the Women's Rest Room on the subject of 
"Income Management" and "Budgets." The 
meetings, which were held at 5:30 were well at- 
tended and considerable interest has been shown 
in the subject by those present.

The many friends of William Colburn Seward, 
Jr. of the Billing Department, learned with pleasure 
that he is to accept a new position in the Rochester 
office of the Safe-Cabinet Company. We all regret 
his leaving, but wish him continued success. 

She of the smiles and bright-colored raiment, 
Leora Younghans of the Billing Department, is 
back with us again after an absence of three weeks 
on account of illness. Leora says she is glad to be 
back, too. 

Thirty-two girls of the Accounting Department 
enjoyed a "get-together" on December 7th in the 
Dining Room. The girls said they enjoyed the 
good feed as well as the dancing that followed. 

The Bookkeeping Department received an open 
letter from Howiird Bushcll stating that he arrived 
safely in England, and that his health is about the 
same. We hope for a better report in his next letter. 

Harry Danziger, formerly of the London Ship- 
ping, who left the company in October, is now 
located in Los .Vngeles, wliere he is engaged in 
raising Pomeranian dogs. His friends in the Ship- 
ping Department have been remembered with 
several packages of fruit and flowers. 

Albert Lawrence of the Export Shijjping Depart- 
ment, sailed on December l.Sth for England to 
spend three months leave of ab.sence in his old home. 


We sympathize with Freda Ryan and Marie 
Mattern of the Repair Department, both of whom 
have been confined to their homes with sprained 
ankles. Freda received hers when stepjiing from 
her car, while Marie slipped and fell at her home. 
Both cases were serious, but have been progressing 
nicely and we hope to have the girls back with us 

Theo Weisheyer, who left the Shipping Depart- 
ment in the fall of 19''20 to locate in Avon Park, 
Florida, writes that he is enjoying himself. Theo 
says that he goes limiting and fishing in his back 
yard and that he has a lavuicli on the ocean. He 
wishes to be remembered to his old friends. 

On Friday, November 25th, the girls of the 
Tabulating Department held a Thanksgiving party 
in the Rest Room. 

The Stock Department announces the arrival 
of John Otto, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. John Otto. 


Harry Dulmage of the Finished Stock Depart- 
ment began his career with the Kodak Company 
on June 9, 1896, when Camera Works was but one 
small building. Harry was employed at that plant 
for seventeen years, at the end of which time he 
moved with the Repair Department to the Main 

In March, 1917, he was transferred to the Finished 
Stock Department, which was supervised by W. J. 
German, and, since that time, has had charge of the 
Finished Part Stock. 


Harry lias [iroxed himself very valuable, owing 
to his knowledge of the part stock and it is hoped 
that he will be able to render his services at least 
twenty-fi\'e years more in the same willing manner 
that he has the last quarter century. 




Alice Burns of the Testing and Packing Depart- 
ment was married on Thanksgiving Day to Edward 
Hoffman of Warsaw, New York. Lillian Allen 
of the Tabulating Department was one of the bride's 
attendants, and Bessie Burns, sister of the bride, 
played the wedding march. Mrs. Hoffman entered 
the employ of the Fastman Kodak Company in 
July, 1919. Her many friends in the Testing and 
Packing Department extend best wishes for her 



Saturday, December 3rd, W. H. ("Pop") Durfee, 
Foreman of the Testing and Packing Department, 
was pleasantly reminded of his birthday, which 
occurred this year on Sunday. He was presented 
with a huge bouquet of choice chrysanthemums and 
ferns by the employees of the Department, whose 
best wishes and congratulations accompanied the 



Ralph Jones of the Freight Shipping Department 
was married on November 23rd to Doris Dunham. 
Congratulations, Ralph. 


Forty members of the Billing Department 
attended a Thanksgiving Social in the Girls Rest 

While dancing to the .strains of Otto's six-piece 
orchestra occupied a large part of the ev'ening, games 
were also played. 

The committee in charge consisted of Martha 
Schultheiss, Anna Brady and Grover Lloyd. 


The Kodak Office Girls basketball team has been 
putting in some hard practice and will be in form 
to meet all comers after the first of the year. Any 
additional players who wish to try out for the team 
are requested to report for practice at the Brick 
Church Institute on Monday evenings at 6:00. 


Yes — the poor old maple pins at Elm Hall 
are still being racked and set up for their 
punishment every Thursday night, for noth- 
ing is being spared to make the strike.'! come 
more frequently. Individual averages are 
now receiving keen attention in this game of 
" plough-into-'em-and-leave-three-up, " but 
it's not they fall more easily. They 
might, but they don't. So, here's the real 
reason — every one is trying to emulate the 
League's President, "Norm" Ferris, who 
leads the procession with the enviable average 
of 186. 

The Girls' Bowling League is also "at 
home" every Thursday evening at Elm Hall, 
and "Jess" Natt, Secretary, is authority for 
the statement that anyone who hasn't seen 
the weekly matches has missed a lot. The 
girls have it all over the men for enthusiasm 
and the rivalry between the teams is so keen 
that one would think a World's Series was 
in progress. 

Dolefully we concede that the race for the 
top notch in the men's circuit is indeed lack- 
ing in real fight. The preponderancy of a 
certain well-known team, which leads its 
nearest rival by an ocean-wide margin, ac- 
counts for this seeming indifference on the 
part of the other teams. But, a glorious 
battle is raging among the Advertising, Sales, 
Service, and Bookkeeping Departments for 
second honors. Possible comers-up, too, in 
this division, are the Industrial Relations 
and Stock Department teams. For the 
present we'll have to let the letter "x" reore- 
sent the other five teams, for their strength 
is indeed an unknown quantity. 

In the Girls' League the Service team 
leads so far, and the eighth floor girls are 
showing all kinds of "pep." The Finishers 
and the flag-holding Sales team follow in 
order, with only a game or two separating 
them. All the teams, however, are showing 
increased strength, and it's not going to be a 
runaway race for anyone. If you want to 
see some fancy bowling, and a lot of good 
sportswomen, be sure to take in these matches. 

If you've ever tried it, you know there's 
great sport in this game of bowling. There's 
real fun, too, just in watching your depart- 
ment team take two or three from "Jimmie's" 
or "Lena's" squad. Step into the Elm any 
Thursday night and root for your favorites. 
And, if you're completely neutral, better 
cheer for the Billing Department aggrega- 
tion, which, at the present writing, is leading 
the League (upside down).

Clever and consistent howling on the part of 
"Jim" Kirvan and "Al"' Flenaing enahled the 
Compacts to roll into a tie ■with the Graflex in the 
first month's work on the Eagle's alleys. 

One game behind the leaders and fighting every 
inch of the way, is the Stereo team, which is exerting 
every effort to overcome that handicap and take 
the^lead in the struggle for supremacy. 

Auto, Jr., captained by Fred Fenner, occupies the 
cellar position. But three games separate them 
from first place. 

To "Pete" Breemes. anchor man for Graflex, 
goes the honor of being the most consistent bowler 
in the League. "Pete" has had only fourteen 
misses, to date. 

The highest game accounted for, so far in the 
season, is ii\. Fred Fenner is the one to be con- 
gratulated for the high mark. 

"Andy" Sold's total of 569 is the best that has 
Ijeen recorded for three games. 

The Compacts accounted for 840 pins in one 
of their games. The highest team total for three 
games goes to the Auto, Jr. squad, who ran up a 
score of 2347.

If the Eastman Kodak Company suddenly cut 
off all communication with the business world? 

If we talked with only the people with whom we 
transact necessary business.' 

If we read no magazines, advertisements or trade 

If we received no callers, interviewed no sales- 
men, and ignored competitors? 

If our executives attended no trade conventions, 
belonged to no business clubs, associated with no 
one in a business way, but depended entirely upon 
themselves for development? 

What Would Happen? 

No organization could exist under such narrowing 
conditions. Present-day business is such that its 
development comes largely from "ideas" secured 
from conventions, business publications, competi- 
tors, salesmen, demonstrators, and workers. No 
business can successfully carry on without these

Seventy-five thousand cubic feet per minute. 
Yes, this is the average anioimt of purified air 
that is sent througli ventilating pipes into Build- 
ings 1 and "2. (This particular system operates 
only in these two buildings, as Buildings 3. 4 and 9 
are heated by direct steam radiation.) A huge duct 
serves as a flue to draw the air down to the engine 
room — situated in the basement. A "tempering" 
coil twelve feet square, is the first process through 
which the air passes. This coil, so to speak, takes 
the "raw edge" from the atmosphere, before it 
imdergoes the treatment. If it were possible to 
see air — although, of course, we can see hea^y 
impurities such as smoke and certain chemical 
fumes — the "laundry" would reveal hundreds of 
feet of oxjgen and nitrogen per minute passing 
through one hundred and twenty-three spray 
nozzles, to emerge thoroughly washed from all 
foreign substances. The purifying process is 
clearly demonstrated by the gritty condition of the 
water as it falls from the spray nozzles into the 
waste tank. A seven and one-half horse-power 

four-inch rotary pump supplies the water for the 

Xow the air is heated. Upon passing the sprays, 
it travels through a series of slats or eliminators 
which separate the water from the air. It next 
passes through a heating coil, and right here is the 
secret of the degrees of heat which allow us to 
work in comfort on the bleakest day of winter. 
The outside temperature governs the amount of 
heat which is forced into the coil, through steam 
pressure. It is obvious that the farther heat travels 
the cooler it becomes. So. accordingly, these coils 
heat the air to appro.ximately one hundred and 
fifty degrees. 

A Skinner engine which operates a rotating fan 
having a circumference of twenty-four feet drives 
the washed and heated air to its various outlets in 
the building. 

Accurate records of temperatures throughout the 
plant are compared with the registration of heat as 
shown on the heating coils, and by adjustment of 
steam pressure we have an even degree of heat, 
with the additional advantage of knowing that we 
are breathing purified and fresh air. 

editor's note. — Last month we attempted to 
give you some idea of the water supply system as 
used for protection against fire. This month we 
are again trying to boost the slogan of "Know Your 
Factory." If there is any particular feature or 
system in the plant which you would consider 
worth e\i)laining in these pages, the Editor will 
appreciate a suggestion to that effect. 

Air chamber or generator connected with the lower system 
in the Buffing Room. The air is drawn into the chamber by 
means of a vacuum fan, and, the impurities dropping into the 
well, the air is washed, forced back through return pipes, and 
thus provides a strong circulation of fresh air. 


The Tool Room lx)ys are "there" when it comes 
to department outings and gatherings, and the 
Liederkranz rang with merriment during their 
bowling tournament. The occasion was bright- 
ened by a '"free limch" counter, loaded with every 
morsel the appetites of bowlers could wish for. 

After the regular game an endurance contest was 
arranged between Barney Rotollo and William 
Miller. Barney claims the reason he won was on 
accoimt of being in the right "frame" of mind, and 
having the right "spirits"! 

Whether it was because of this game, we know 
not. but it certainly looks suspicious, for a few 
weeks later we notice that the wives accompanied 
their husbands to the Forester's Temple, where 
another bowling party took place. Mr>. Geiger 
won the prize for the highest score, and "Joe" 
Seigfried won the dnun — s\'mbolic of something 
he wight beat, on his low rating. John Lemon 
was also very much imder 500, while Mrs. Fritz 
shared the honor of being high lady. 




Amonj; our distinguished visitors during the 
last month we are happy to hst the name of Mr. 
Thomas lllingworth, of London, England, president 
of the world-famous company bearing his name, 
manufacturers of photographic jjapers. 


Almost one ton of candy was consumed — or 
at least, bought — by employees of this plant for 
Thanksgiving and Christmas. 


A Thursday evening not so long ago saw twenty 
"young bloods" from the Office invading Bruckner's 
Alleys for the purpose of "slaughtering the pins." 
Ray Waldron offered to "take on" any man in the 
bunch; Harold Brown and Frank Connelly nearly 
staged a "catch-as-catch-can." Goodness knows 
what did happen to Frizelle! 

Anyway, it was a grand and glorious party and 
the bowling was great. Even "Billy" Lawrence 
almost -scored '■200! He went one hundred per cent 
on the Dutch lunch, but we doubt whether he beat 
'Billy" Stark on this feature. 

The boys heartily appreciate all the hard work 
that Leo Quinn did to make the gatliering a success. 
They are also grateful to Ray Waldron for getting 
some of the bovs home before reveille. 


Considerable interest is being shown throughout 
the seventh floor office in the game of chess, and 
especially does the excitement run higli in the Detail 
and Estimate Department. Tliere are no less than 
ten participants in that Department alone, which, 
on account of the science required to master the 
game, is i^uite a feather in the cap of Mr. Zimmer's 
boys. Promising recruits are springing up. and the 
leaders of today will have to look to their laurels 
in order to hold their place in the sun. 


Way back in nineteen hundred and three, this is 
how the Tool Room boys looked at one of their 
famous gatherings held at Long Pond. How many 
of our present members can you recognize? 


Those of us who have become members of the 
Recreation Club — and we are seventy-three per 
cent of the entire Camera Works organization — 
have shown a faitli in the return of normal times, 
and the subsequent development of plant activities. 

We all learn from mistakes. To quote a copy- 
book motto: "Successes are built on failures.'' 
The Board of Managers is not admitting anything 
akin to failure, (nor are we), but mistakes were made 
and we are glad they were, for they clearly point 
out just what not to do this year. It is no small 
problem to cater to the likes and dislikes of such 
a large group, and it was a new experience for them 
to handle. Seventy-three per cent or six hundred 
men and women, have endorsed the Recreation 
Club, and its present Board. Be assured that the 
Executive Committee will do its level best to satisfv. 


Let's all make a New Year's resolution to work 
a little better, think a little more, be a little more 
careful, and give our fullest co-operation to any 
idea that will prove a benefit to the greatest number 
of people. 

Sympathy of the Office is extended to George 
Kremble and family on the recent death of his 

Our condolence is expressed in this message to 
Myron Hayes, whose sister-in-law, Miss Mabel 
Hilburn, recently died. Many of us will recollect 
Miss Hilburn as a former employee of the Pay Roll 

To Ray Miles and family Me offer sympathy on 
the loss of his father. 

The Editor wishes all readers a prosperous and 
happy New Year. 

"Herb" Thorpe wishes to convey his thanks for the

Permit us to introduce — 
Monsieur Le Chef. 

Jean PoUinque is just the 
kind of a man one would 
picture our chef to be — only 
he is more so. Jovial, ro- 
tund, rosy cheeks, with 
more chins than nature 
originally endowed him. and 
with a decided display of 
what our French cousins 
term "eng-bon-pong" 
(American vernacular — al- 
derman), Jean would be the 
finest advertisement possi- 
ble for any restaurant by 
simply standing in the show 
window behind a sign read- 
ing "This is where / eat I" 

Monsieur PoUinque is a 
busy man; in fact, remem- 
bering the adage that "a 
cook's realm is the kitchen. "' 
We hesitated before ventur- 
ing into his sanctum sanc- 

However, upon gaining 
the good graces of Miss 
Crarer — we entered and es- 
pied Jean entrenched behind 


a mountain of hamburg 
steak. Irvia Cobb told 
us — in the Saturday Evening 
Post — that the principal ex- 
port of France is chefs. 
Whether there is any truth 
underlying this piece of 
humor is a question, but it 
is undoubtedly true, that 
France produces the world's 
finest cooks, and Jean is no 
exception to the rule. It's 
not only a matter of pre- 
paring good food, but also 
of preparing it so that when 
the clock chimes twelve, the 
umgry family at State 
Street can be promptly fed. 

Jean first saw the light of 
day in the little town of 
Chanaz. in the province of 
Sanore. There is no doubt 
that his predecessors were 
cooks, for to be successful 
at the profession, one has 
to be born a chef. Those 
doughboys who" lit up Paris 
like Broadway, "will remem- 
ber the Maison Boisier — 




on the Boulevard des Capercones, — where Jean once 
exercised his skill in preparing tempting dishes. 

The Waldorf-Astoria in New York, and also 
Delmonico's, and the New Astoria, owe much of 
the fame of their cuisine to our chef, and, here in 
our home town, he prepared lunches, dinners and 
banquets for fourteen years at Powers Hotel. Dur- 
ing the visit of then President Taft to Rochester, 
Jean prepared the sumptuous banquet served in the 
President's honor at Convention Hall, when he was 
personally complimented on the repast by the com- 
mittee in charge of affairs. On this occasion, gas 
stoves were used for the first time in this city to 
cook a complete dinner of such magnitude. 

When it comes to juggling calories and vitamines, 

no one has the lead on Jean. Of course, all pro- 
fessions have secrets and Jean possesses many an 
original recipe about which it would be a sacrilege 
even to inquire. But to see him preparing roasts of 
beef and pork and lamb and mutton, dipping fish 
cutlets into batter, mixing up steak and onions to 
emerge as hamburg. we get a slight idea of the 
amount of culinary knowledge he possesses. Natur- 
ally, a dinner such as is served in our dining room^ 
excellent as it is — does not call for the ingenuity 
required to prepare a ten-course Ijanquet, but, 
whether the menu calls for boiled beef and cabbage 
or ris de veau sou cloche Eugenie, Jean PoUinque 
proves to be a master of the art of "feeding the 
inner man." 


The Foremen's group is threatening to become 
more active than any other organization in this 
plant, providing all the plans mature which Frank 
O'Brien, Chairman, has slated for the coming year. 

The year really ended last October, but January 
was considered a better time to hold an election of 
officers, so, within the next week or so each foreman 
will receive full particulars. 

This body is organized in a co-operative spirit, 
and each member is at liberty to express any sugges- 
tions or plans which he or she may have to further 
the activities or welfare of the group. 

The "buddies" of the factory, headed up by 
"Charlie" Rogers and Ray Waldron. sold two 
hundred and twenty tickets for the benefit of dis- 
abled soldiers. A motion picture show, held under 
the auspices of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, proved 
good value for the money spent, and it was a splen- 
did tribute to a worthy cause to know that this 
plant responded so freely. 

^^T^0's whc 


It was formerly quite a hunt to get photographs 
of this type, but we have discovered that John 
Lohwater has a regular gold mine of them. You 


can never tell whose turn it is going to be, but we 
thought we'd start off by printing two very popular 
subjects. No need to waste space explaining who's 
who in this particular pictiu-e to Camera workers, 
but we are mentioning their names for the inform- 
ation of those who do not see them every day. 


NNednt'sday nights at Kodak Park. 

Two fast games of basketball, and a dance with 
a first-class orchestra. Here's a great attraction, 
especially with the price as low as thirty-five cents 
for a whole evening's entertainment. The schedule 
calls for eight more double-headers, winding up on 
February 2'2nd. 

Why not call around for "Her," board a Lake 
Avenue car for the Kodak Park Assemljly Hall, 
and give the doings the "once over"? It's the best 
attraction the Recreation Clubs have offered. 

Now, you know the facts. Just go once and you 
won't want to miss any more games. Tickets 
admitting you and a friend to three sessions of the 
Kodak League are on sale at SI. 50 — twenty-five 
cents per person per night. Can you beat it.' 
Single tickets cost thirty-five cents, and can be 
obtained from "Charlie" Rogers or "Herb" Thorpe. 

Let's get together and shout for Kivell's boys. 


Dear Fellow Workman: 

I have a special message for you. On or around 
January 13th the "School for Safety Supervisors" 
is opening at the Chamber of Commerce, and — 
the time to enroll is iioir'. 

The finest speakers on industrial and public 
safety have been secured by the National Safety 
Council for the thirteen lectiu-es, which are made 
interesting by the frequent use of motion pictures. 
The student attending ten of these lectures is 
entitled to graduate with full honors, and is given 
a diploma to tliat effect. 

Now, boys, what do you say.' Are you interested 
in learning how you can become more valuable to 
yourself, to those that are dear to you, and to the 
whole communitv.' The good you will receive 
from this extra knowledge will more than repay 
for the tinae you spend with us. I want to see the 
good old Camera Works leading the safety squad, 
and I have great hopes of three hundred and fifty 
enrollments from the Eastman Kodak Company. 

Ask "Dick" Jennings or myself to give you some 
idea of the })cnefits that can be derived from this 
opportunity. Both of us are ready to write your 
name to the best insurance in the world — that of 
Safety First. 

Sincerely yours, 

\'ice-('hairman. Industrial Safety Group 




CLIFF" ("Skyscraper" ) JOHNSON 
Hawk-Eye Court Leader 

THIS pennant-win- 
ing habit is surely 
getting a strangle grip 
on Hawk-Eye's athletes. 
Not satisfied with lasso- 
the Kodak and city 
baseball titles two years 
hand-running they pro- 
ceeded to go out and 
snare three straight court 
contests to start off the 
career of the Kodak 
Basketball League. 
In fact, matters 
have come to such 
a pass that the 
other teams in con- 
clave assembled, have unanimously de- 
cided that this uninterrupted Hawk-prey- 
ing on the Kodak hen-yard must be 
stopped, even though it takes double- 
barrelled shot-gims, 
smokeless powder, 
and an extra heavy 
charge of baskets 
and foul 
shots to 
^^^ ^^_ turn the 

JBH ^^ trick. 



Kodak Park, by virtue 
of a slasliing. driving, 
attack, and a well-bal- 
s(|uad, including 
plenty of capable 
substitutes, has 
I)lowed through to 
victorv in all ex- 


Captain of Kodak Park Quint CCpt the Opening

Camera Works Captain 

contest with Hawk-Eye 
where the narrow margin 
of three points lost them 
the decision. Kodak Office 
squeaked in with its only 
victory by an even closer 
margin, taking the open- 
ing encounter from 
Camera Works by a 
single point. The latter 
outfit has yet to register 
in the win column, but 
has been showing rapid 
improvement, to- 
gether with that 
"never say die"spirit, 
so characteristic of 
all Camera Works 

teams. That the Robertson entry will 
cut an imposing figure in court circles 
ere spring is undisputed. 

Thanksgiving Eve saw 
the getaway engagements 
of the new circuit. In 
the opener, Kodak Office 
was lucky to nose out 
Camera Works, 9 to 8, in 
a game marked by a 
grammar school brand of 
shooting. The Office 

team passed like Vetera us, 
but "blew" enough easy 
shots to beat the Centrals. 
Hawk-Eye and 
Kodak Park locked 
horns in a decidedly 
superior contest, -hash' McNeil 
where the phenome- '^;^Spy PiTo't' 




nal shooting of "Wib" Woodams, who 
caged them overhand and underhand, 
from corner or mid-court, with ecjual ease, 
gave the Hawks a liard-earned 16-13 

On December 7th, Kodak Park handed 
Camera Works the httle end of an 18 to 11 
mark, though finding it necessary to call 
in "Tip-off Tommy" Thompson to help 
subdue the Camera crew. Hawk-Eye set 
a fast pace to trim Kodak Office, 15 to 9, 
with Woodams again cast in the role of 
chief scorer. 

A week's lay-off intervened, because of 
the Annual Exhibit of the Kodak Park 
Fur and Feather Club, which monopolized 
the Assembly Hall. The court schedule 
got under way again on December 14th. 
This night saw the mantle of "Elijah" 
Woodams fall upon the shoulders of 
"P^lisha" Johnson, when the latter mono- 
polized the well-known lime-light with 
five successful net-piercers. Hawk-Eye 
won from Camera Works, 25 to 10, in the 
most one-sided game played to date. 
The Hawks displayed finished team-work 
and accurate shooting, while the State 
Street ers seemed unable to get started. 
The nightcap })etween Kodak Park and 
the Office provided one of those old- 
fashioned knock - down - and - drag - out 
rough-and-tumbles, with the rival teams 
displaying an enthusiasm which would 
make a jungle tiger look like a fireside 
tom-cat. The regular session ended in a 
deadlock at twelve-all, and five minutes 
extra were needed before the Parkers 
corralled the decision 16 to 13. 

Although Hawk-Eye is setting the pace 
just at present, the season is only in its in- 
fancy, and all four of the contenders still 
have a good chance for the flag. 

These Wednesday night parties are 
furnishing the high lights of the Kodak 
sport world this winter. The spirit of the 
different plants in getting together on a 
co-operative basis for a League of this 
kind is highly commendable, and the 
clean brand of high class basketball played 
by most of the quint stars is a rare treat 
to lovers of friendly athletic competition. 


By Fleeta Foot* 
We find a very lively refutation of the 
"They never come back" adage in the 
wizard performances of veteran "Wib" 
Woodams in the opening games. "Wib" 
caged four dazzling counters on opening 
night to defeat Kodak Park, and repeated 
the feat a week later against the Office 

When it conies to the all-around athlete 
stuff, we lay the tinted palm-leaf at the feet 
of "Charlie" Kivell. "Charlie" takes his 
turn in the box, at third, or in the outfield 
with equal nonchalance. The football sea- 
son finds liim hurling forwards or skirting 
the ends for the Scalpers. In the Kodak 
Basketball League he shows the opposing 
forwards what real guarding is. And, in 
the meantime, between times, he swings a 
mean racket on the tennis court. 

"Hash" McNeil and "Tommy" Thomp- 
son find time now and again, between their 
numerous professional engagements, to 
appear in the League games. 

The Brightman brothers make a forn. id- 
able front line for the Park outfit. They 
slip in and out like a pair of wing-footed 
antelopes, covered with eel-skin. 

"Bill" Roach opines that, if he can keep 
his outfit of antiques intact for twelve weeks, 
the basketball pennant will find a niche 
alongside of Hawk-Eye's two baseball flags. 
But, with Ingleby's thatch growing shock- 
ingly thin, Woodams contemplating the use 
of a wheel-chair on the court, and "Ciifi" 
Johnson long past the days of winning prizes 
at Baby Shows, the Hawk-Eye mentor is a 
bit dubious. As for Benny Levine. no one 
has nerve enough to ask this "Hock-l" 
guard just liow many years ago he captained 
the East High quint. Then, just add "Jim"" 
Weldon, and you seem to have the Butt'alo 
Germans come to life again. When the 
Hawks meet the other outfits, it's a case of 
court strategy against youtli. and Roach's 
motto is: "Brains will win.'" 

"Toddy" Diehl and "Mose" Eggert, not 
kept busy enough by their activities with 
the Kodak Office squad, have signed to play 
also with the Niagara A. C. 

Next games, Wednesdav, Januarv -ttli. 
At 8:00 P. M. Hawk-Eye vs. Kodak\)ffice. 
At 8:-I'.5, Kodak Park and Camera Works. 
Cars leave the Four Corners every four 
minutes, and make the trip to the Ridge 
Road in seventeen minutes. Walk west 
to the Ridge Road entrance of Kodak Park. 
You'll hear the noise and cheering in the 
Assenibly Hall, and finding the scene of tlie 
fracas will be an easy matter.

FEBRUARY, 19^2^2 

No. 9 



ALL of US hope for many more years of 
business usefulness even thougli 
we may have quite an extended period of 
service with the company beliind us. 

There is ahvays, however, tlie unex- 
pected to be reckoned with, and so the 
plan now to be put in operation by the 
company is highly comforting. 

This plan provides that employees of 
this company and of other companies, 
foreign or domestic, subsidiaries of the 
Eastman Kodak Comjjany, who are of 
good record and are retired by the com- 
pany employing them on account of ad- 
vanced age or disability, shall be allowed 
their maximum sick benefit, less any 
payments made to them on account of 
illness during their last emjiloyment year, 
or, if absent on account of illness for a 
periocf of six months or more immediately 
preceding their retirement, then less all 
payments made since the beginning of 
their illness. 

That all such employees shall have 
transferred to them the shares of stock 
represented by their Managers Certi- 
ficates, subject to the provisions govern- 
ing the plan of stock distriljution in cases 
of retirement for total disability. 

That retirement of an employee in 
accordance with this ])lau shall not de- 
prive such employee of any wage dividend 
computed upon the wages actually paid 
and to which he would be entitled if he 
had com])leted the calendar year during 
which he was retired, and had l)een in the 
employ of the comj)any on July 1 follow- 
ing his retirement. 

That the plan shall be retroactive to 
December 1. 19'-21; and 

That in case any employee retired 
imder this plan shall receive or be en- 
titled to receive any Government pension 
or allowance at the time of such retire- 
ment, then the company reserves the right 
to modify this plan accordingly. 

That employees of good record who 
have reached the age of sLxty (60) years 
and have been twenty ('-20) years or more 
in the service of the company employing 
them, or in the service of one of its allied 
subsidiaries, may voluntarily retire with 
the consent of the company employing 
them, and in that case shall be entitled to 
receive the same benefits under this plan 
as if retired by the management; and 

The Kodak Employees Association 
(Incorporated) will supplement the pay- 
ment made by this company as above 
provided, by undertaking to pay from its 
funds to all employees retiring or retired in 
accordance with this plan and who have 
been at that time five years or over in the 
service, a sum equivalent to one week's 
pay for each year of completed service, and 
for fractions of a year, one day's pay for 
each two months of completed service, 
and that in computing such cash payment 
the maximum weekly wage on which 
such |)aynienl is based shall not exceed 

The company and the Kodak Em- 
ployees Association (Incor])orate(l) re- 
-serve the right to discontinue this plan at 
any time, or to make such changes therein 
as may appear advisable. 



"The best method of systematic saving is the planning and carrying out of a personal or 
family budget system. With the budget you can plan your income intelligently, and, at the 
end of each month and year, know exactly where you stand and can put aside a definite amount 
to be saved for some specific purpose. 

"Real saving means regularly putting aside a definite amount to meet some of the bigger 
needs; not the saving for a few weeks or months, and then spending the money for something 
you could have done without." 

From "--1 Message from Mr. Eastman," in the Kodak Magazine, December, 1921. 

IN the above words we find well 
expressed the reasons why everyone 
should make a budget — and live up to it. 
In the Januarv' issue of the Magazine, 
the services of the Eastman Savings and 
Loan Association were placed at the 
disposal of Kodak employees and mem- 
bers of their families for any assistance 
they might wish in budget making. 
Already, there have been a ninnber of 
applications for such help, but the officers 
of the Association feel that there must 
be in our niunber many more who would 
appreciate advice. 

Realizing, however, that it is difficult 
for many of our people to find time to 
visit the Association office, the officers 
have decided to supply by mail to those 
who will ask for them, budget forms 
and pamphlets describing the operation 
of a budget. These publications are 
issued by the New York State College of 
Agriculture at Cornell University, under 
the titles: "Making a Budget" and "How 
to Keep a Cash Account." If you wish 
to take advantage of this offer, just drop 
a note to Mr. Bartholomew at 343 State 
Street, the secretary of the Association, 
stating that j'ou wish budget forms and

The records for membership in the 
Association as of January 10 show a 
slight falling off from the December 
figures. This, Mr. Bartholomew attrib- 
utes to the fact that some members of 
the Association saved money regularly 
throughout the year, and then drew it 
out in a lump sum to spend for Christmas. 
This course, you will notice, is directly 
contrary to the plan of action recom- 
mended in the above quotation from 
Mr. Eastman's message. 

If you are working on a budget your 
savings should remain savings, so that 
you do not have to draw them out to buy 
Christmas presents, or to satisfy some 
other want. The best way is to estimate 
now the amount you will want to spend 
at Christmas time this year, and become 
a member of the Association Christmas 
Club. It is not yet too late to do this, 
and your regidar savings account in the 
Association ^-ill then be left intact. 


Dear Hen: 

Me and Tom Drier got together the 
other evening and we was talking over 
the times when him and me was with the 
bimch up to Rochester. 

Tom asks me did I recollect Bud 
Flickinger and I says shure, and then he 
remarks that wasn't it curious like that 

Bud hadn't got no farther. 

You see for a while Bud passed the 
rest of us fellows just like our shoes was 
nailed to the floor and we all felt that 
nothing wouldn't stop him from being 
maybe a Vice-President some day. Then 
all of a sudden gradual like he didn't get 
no farther. 


Tom said that mebbe Bud's boss had 
ought to have done like a fellow he used 
to know up Vermont way. 

Tom said that this chap he knew used 
to raise the all-firedest fattest hogs he 
ever seen; used to take all the first 
premiums at all the county fairs, and 
the other farmers thought that he must 
be getting some inside dope from the 
Department of Agriculture or something. 

Come to find out though he didn't 
know no more about feeding and fatten- 
ing hogs than the other fellows, but he 
did know hog nature. 

You see when a hog got just about so 
fat he would turn up his nose at all the 
delicacies in the trough, and just lay 
around in the sun and take it easy. 

When this stage of the fattening was 
reached this fellow would put a little 
half starved shoat in the same pen and 
he just couldn't get both his front feet 
in the trough fast enough. 



Well you know how it is with hogs 
Hen, the minute the big fellow seen that 
the little fellow was a pitching in he'd 
up and drive the little cuss away and 
eat everything in the trough himself. 

There is more than one way to 
ambition ain't they? 

There's quite a bit doing down 
way Hen, the other evening a bunch of 
bandits held up the clerk in one of them 
chain cigar stores and grabbed off every- 
thing in sight, and then the head hold-up 
give one of the clerks a nasty look and 
the clerk says, "well and what do you 
want now," and the bandit he says 
"come across with the coupons." 

Don't know when I'll get up to 
Rochester again Hen, the last time I 
was up the first four people I met didn't 
remember me and the next three didn't 
know that I had been away. 



DID you ever accept a position in a 
strange city and. when you arrived, 
learn that suitable living accommodations 
were very difficult to find? Or, did the 
landlord ever tell you that your rent 
would be raised after next month, and 
not having any time to look for another 
place, feel almost compelled to pay the 
advance, although you couldn't afford it.^ 

The housing bureau at Kodak Office 
was started to assist people having 
difficulty in finding suitable places to 
live, and to relieve them of some of their 
worries in that direction. Miss Crafts, 
who has charge of this service, keeps a 
record of all rooms or apartments brought 
to her notice. In all cases possible these 
are personally investigated so that she 
knows where she is sending you M'hen she 
gives you a list. 

In the case of houses, it is, of course, 
impossible to keep vacancies on record 
as houses are taken too quickly. If 
your name is on the list as wanting a 
house you will lie notified of anv vacant 

places that Miss Crafts hears of and 
thinks would suit vou. 




At present she has on file the names of 
several people who have comfortable 
rooms to rent and who will, in some cases, 
give board. If yon need such a place, 
communicate with her. Anyone who 
can add to the list of available places 
is invited to do so. When writing always 


THE folks in the Frank Seaman Adver-

a pretty lively bunch. At Christmas time 

they held a big get-together party, and 
a special newspaper The Seaman Log 
was issued for the occasion. This "news- 
paper" was no respecter of executives or 
clients, and more or less authentic news 
was published regarding the various 
members present. The advertisements of 
their clients were cleverly burlesqued, and 
we came in for our share. The accom- 
panying illustration shows how one of our 
advertising slogans "Kodak As You Go" 
was manhandled.

best to help you.

They can pretty accurately determine

Not being financiers, or used to the

fail to take into consideration how the

He may even commence manufacturing 
in a small way to stimulate further the

new and just as green.

FROM a one-man organization, and 
with products for which a market 
had to be created, to an organization 
employing thousands with a world-'^nde 
distribution, is the history of Kodak. 

In the United States our distribution 
is highly complete, and it woidd be pretty 
difficult to locate a town where the sign 
"Kodaks" is not somewhere in evidence. 

Early in our history a reputation for 
quality and uniformity was established, 
and as our distribution grew, we had to 
plan to maintain this good will. Our 
sensitized products, film, paper and plates, 
require special care in handling and 
stocking in order that they may reach 
the consumer in perfect condition. For 
this and other good reasons, we do not 
supply the trade through jobbing houses, 
but ship direct to the dealer. 

To facilitate distribution in the large 
business centers, and to enable our cus- 
tomers at points distant from Rochester 
to receive our goods speedily, we have 

branch houses in New York, Chicago, 
and San Francisco. 

We own the property and buildings 
housing these branches and each one is 
specially adapted to meet our needs. 
(See page 2) . 

At each of these points a full stock of 
our products, except motion picture 
film, and some professional apparatus, is 
carried so that the trade in their terri- 
tories can be promptly supplied. 

We do not occupy the entire building 
in New York City, but other floors will 
be available when our needs demand. 
The Chicago building also houses our 
card mount and album factory — ^Taprell, 
Loomis & Company — but the San Fran- 
cisco Building is used exclusively by our 

We have close to seventeen thousand 
five hundred dealers in the United States 
handling our products; so you can see 
that our three branches play an important 
part in our plan of distribution. 



IT is a mighty good tiling to own a 
piece of the town yon live in, and still 
better if it holds iij) the house in which 
j'ou live — yonr home. 

Before buying a plot of ground either 
for purely speculative purposes, or on 
which to build your home, there are a 
few things to determine in order to avoid 
future unpleasantness. 

The first tiling to make sure of is 
that the property you wish to buy is 
worth the price asked. If you have ])aid 
an excessive price, you may later on 
receive a startling jolt when you wish to 
sell, or to build a liome. Always have a 
lot appraised by a dis-interested expert 
before you buy it. The appraisal fee is 
very small compared with the amount 
you may lose if you make a mistake in 
your estimate of the value of the j^roperty. 

A good many lots are sold under what 
is called a land contract, where you pay a 
few dollars down and a dollar or more per 
week, but do not get a deed until all the 
payments have been made. This is 
buying a lot on the installment plan 
just as you can buy furniture or clothing. 
These contracts are drawn to favor the 
seller in every possible way, and often 
give him the right to declare the contract 
at an end and keej) the lot and the money 
you have already paid, as damages in 
case you don't ol^serve your agTeement 
most precisely. It is a mighty disagree- 
able thing to have the fear of a forfeiture 
hanging over your head and you had 
better not enter such a contract AA-ithout 
being sure that you really want the lot, 
and that you can pay for it in the way the 
contract provides or sooner. 

In sizing up a lot, see if there are any 
improvements such as water, sewer, 
sidewalks, gutters, ])avement . If not, 
are such im])rovements contemj)latcd 
soon? How nuich will they cost? You 
can get a good idea of the cost of improve- 
ments at the City Engineer's office. ]Many 
people have gone out into the country and 
bought a lot in a new subdivision and 
foTUid that, Avhen tlic section was improved. 

they had paid in the original price of the 
lot, together with the assessment for 
improvements, more than it would have 
cost to buy a lot on an improved city 
street that would have been far more 
satisfactory in the long run. 

Whatever you do, do not build upon 
any property before you receive a deed 
for it. You may not, at the time of 
purchase, be able to pay in full for your 
lot or lots. In such cases the only safe 
way to do is to take a deed for the 
l^roperty, and give a mortgage to secure 
the unpaid balance. The title is then 
\'ested in you and your equity in the 
l^roperty can be definitely ascertained. 

If you should build on property the 
title to which has not been vested in you 
by a deed, and fall down on your pay- 
ments, you would stand a good chance of 
losing both the land and the house. In 
any event, it would entail a lawsuit if 
you sought to recover anything for the 
improvements you had made. 

When you purchase a piece of property 
do not accept the word of the seller, or 
the word of anyone else, that the title is 
perfect. Demand a certified abstract 
of title brought down to the date of 
the deed to you. Even then do not pay 
over the purchase price until you have 
the written opinion of an expert real 
estate laA\yer. 

The abstract of title, which is the his- 
tory of all deeds, mortgages, and other 
transactions regarding the property for 
at least forty years back, and down toyour 
deed, should be furnished you by the 
seller without cost. The attorney will 
charge you a fee for examining the title 
as shown by the abstract and for his 
written opinion, but it will be well worth 
the money as a safeguard. 

^^'hatc^•er you do, do not commence 
l)uilding on property unless you have a 
deed to it. If you contemplate buying 
or building, and are a bit inicertain as to 
the best course to ])ursue, the Industrial 
Relations Dej)artment will be glad to 
confer Avith vou. 




HOW much would you take in good 
hard cash for your eyes? 

Such a query is nonsense, because all 
the money that could be shoveled into a 
box car would not influence you to part 
with them. 

This being so, then why is it that so 
many people take needless chances with 
their eyes, put off wearing glasses until 
the last possible moment, and then 
are content with selecting a pair from a 
tray in a ten cent store, or with being 
fitted by some one whose qualifications 
for such work are an entirely unknown 

In seeking the proper person to examine 
your eyes for glasses our unqualified 
advice is that you consult an oculist of 
established reputation. 

Many people confound the terras 
"oculist," "optician," and "optometrist" 
and think that they all mean the same 
thing, and that any one of the three is 
equally competent to prescribe for and fit 
glasses to correct imperfect vision. 

Here are the facts so that you may 
decide for yourself: the oculist is a grad- 
uate of a medical college in good standing, 
where his four years' course in the study 
of medicine and surgery has given him 
his M. D. degree. In addition to his 
regular training of four years to become 
a physician, he has had to spend two or 
more years in the special study of the 
eye and its diseases. With this training 
he is able not only to examine properly, 
or refract, your eyes for glasses, but in 
addition to determine just why you need 
glasses; he is often able to locate some 
other bodily ailment which is the real 
cause of the defect in vision and which 
can be cured or greatly remedied, and 
so do away with the necessity for glasses 
at a later period. This is particularly 
true with children. The oculist does 
not make nor supply glasses, he merely 
indicates what is needed, leaving it to 
the optician to manufacture from his 
prescription what it calls for and to 
adjust the glasses properly to the eyes 

of the patient. If you do not need 
glasses, the oculist will so inform you, 
as he has no personal interest in supplying 

Strictly speaking the field of the 
optician, and the optometrist, lies in the 
making of the lenses called for in the 
oculist's prescription, and in seeing that 
the frames in which they are placed are 
properly adjusted. 

Practically all opticians and optome- 
trists will measure eyes for glasses, and 
in cases where no indirect physical causes 
exist, are able to afford satisfaction. 

It is hardly to be expected that they 
can, without the medical training and 
experience of the oculist, detect unusual 
conditions, and so prescribe intelligently. 
It is their business to sell glasses. 

It is no more than fair to state, however, 
that the reputable optician and optome- 
trist will, when he finds any unusual 
condition, advise the patient to consult 
an oculist before proceeding farther. 
The danger lies in the fact that the patient 
may not have happened into the office 
of one so upright and honorable. 

Your eyes are one of your most valuable 
assets. You need expert assistance to 
determine what is best for your ej^es, 
and what can be done to strengthen them 
and thus to prolong their and your useful- 

A very common cause of headache is 
eye strain, and the treatment for it in 
most cases is — glasses. A very slight 
defect in sight will in some individuals 
cause severe headache with other disturb- 
ances of the general system. One may 
see perfectly and yet be straining to do 
so to such an extent that headaches 
appear. Headaches from the eyes are 
usually in front over the eyes or in the 
back of the head, and are worse after 
using the eyes. Other signs of eye 
strain are redness, burning, watering, 
blurring, and sleepiness. To correct such 
a condition requires special skill and 
training. Don't trust your eyes to any 
one but a first-class eve doctor. 




The superintendents, foremen, and employees' 
representatives were given a rare treat last month 
by the management of the Camera Works. To 
attempt to say which was the best feature of the 
evening would be an impossible feat. The dinner 
was par excellence, Mr. Robertson and Mr. Stuber 
gave us tabloid talks, Frank O'Brien said a cheery 
word or two, "Charlie" Rogers gave us a brand new 
system for curing the blues, Kodak Park contributed 
George Englehart's famous octette of singers, and 
Meinhard's trio supplied orchestral music. Add 
to all this a wonderful three-reel "movie," and you 
get an outline of the enjoyable evening made 
possible by the combination. 

We cannot resist telling our readers a little about 
the "movie." At great cost, the company has 
portrayed the making of film from the raw 
materials to the finished product. The subject 
is a mighty interesting one in itself, but the thought 
that struck us was the perfection of photography, 
largely made possible by the quality of the film. 
All the art of the science of photography was 
brought to bear on the actual exposures, and the 
film is a brilliant example of the progress of this age 
of visual records. The film is to be used for adver- 
tising purposes, and will be projected in the largest 
theaters throughout the country. 


We are proud to state that our percentage of 
employees who are imable to speak or read English 
is so very small that the figure is hardly worth 
mentioning. We are, also, practically an "All- 
American" organization as regards citizenship, 
and certainly a one-hundred per cent factory in 
American ideals and sentiment. In spite of the 
fact that our personnel is composed of native sons 
and daughters of twenty-eight countries, the 
reputation which everyone of us earned during the 
"drives" of Liberty bonds. Thrift Stamps and War 
Chests, proves that our sympathies lie with "Uncle 

This statement, however, does not in any way 
detract from the splendid work which the Coimcil 
for Better Citizenship is doing among the foreign- 
born people of Rochester. Not only has this 
Council been instrumental in preparing applicants 
for citizenship, but it now intends to educate the 
illiterate citizen of foreign birth. It is not always 
the fault of the individual that his or her knowledge 
of the English language is somewhat limited; 
more often, it is the result of environment, and the 
lack of sufficient educational centers to take care of 
this particular phase of Americanization. 

A recent survey in tliis city disclosed the fact 
that about five thousand foreign-born adults in 
Rochester are unable to speak or write English. 
Of these, about two thousand are at the present 
time atten<ling nigiit school, factory, or home 
groups. The object of the Covmcil, working imder 
the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce, is to 
induce the remaining three thousand to register 
in these classes. 

The educational program of our city is a source of 
civic and state pride. There is really no excuse for 

illiteracy, either in native or foreign born residents. 
A thorough canvass of factories will reveal those 
persons that require this service, and we, who are 
more fortunate in education, can do much to help 
in this latest phase of Americanization. 


Camera Works employees are to be congratulated 
on re-electing Herbert S. Rogers to represent them 
on the Board of the Kodak Employees Association. 

Three men were nominated by the executive 
committee of the Emplov"ees Representatives — 
Herbert Rogers, Lawrence Welch, and Frank 
Holdredge. Welch and Holdredge withdrew, thus 
leaving no contestants against Rogers. 

There is probably no man better qualified to 
fill this important position of Director than "Herb." 
After such competent representation as he has given 
)is for two consecutive years, there is no question 
that he is an ideal man for the job. 


The Industrial Relations Department is prepared 
to assist employees in filling out Federal and State 
income tax forms. Please make arrangements 
with your foreman, as to when you can best be 
spared from the department. 

We will endeavor to prevent delay as far as 
possible. The licst way to get prompt ser%-ice is 
to phone for an appointment. 

If you need this .service, be prepared with all 
available figures relating to income, expenditures, 
value of property, and tax receipts. 




When it comes to promoting "Safety First," 
the Camera Works management and employees 
are heart and soul in favor of this vital phase of 
modern industry. Years ago, httle thought was 
given to the value of human hves, and accidents 
were accepted as inevitable. Now, however, we 
know that about four-fifths of them are avoidable, 
and, just as we were taught in our infant days that 
two and two make four, so are we instructed today 
that "Safety First" means the conservation of sound 
limbs, good health, and a reasonable assurance of 
immunity from sudden death. 

Almost every city and town has, as part of its 
"Live a Little Longer" program, group lectures and 

discussions on safety. Our city — always pro- 
gressive — has a splendid group of people, the Cham- 
ber of Commerce, fostering the idea of a school 
for safe practices, especially in industry. We are 
proud to state that 146 men and women from our 
own factory have enrolled — and it is not too late 
for others to enroll even now. Those students 
who attend ten lessons of the thirteen that are given 
will receive a diploma issued under authority from 
the National Safety Council. 

Below we give the names and departments of 
the students for 1922, as a record of the employees 
who are practical in their method of believing and 
practicing safety:

Not such a little celebration at that! Fifty-flve 
people is quite a big crowd when they all get togetner 
and clatter spoons and forks and knives and plates — 
to say nothing of tongues! 

The Brownie and Junior Departments of Kodak 
Assembling recently made a regular banqueting 
hall of Building "l, where a very tempting spread of 
good things to eat decked the benches, in lieu of 
the usual piles of cameras. 

The two Marguerites — ^Matthews and ^Nluir — 
displayed their culinary talents, and ^liss Crarer 
supplied the china and tableware. We haven't 
yet learned what Frank Reynolds or "Charlie" 
Rogers supplied, except of coiu"se, their graceful 
presence, but, the party was a big hit with the boys 
and girls who attended. 

The girls in the Bellows Department were not 
really surprised to notice a diamond sparkling on 
the third finger of Belle Ribner's hand, especially 
since Belle had so eagerly looked forward to a 
special visit from a special friend. They are now 
hoping to hear further news, and promise to cele- 
brate the coming event with all due ceremony. 


Election of Cameko offi'>ers for the year 1922 
resulted in the choice of: 

President James B. Wright 

Vice-President Ray W. Waldron 

Secretary Albert J. Weltzer 

The incoming officers are hereby congratulated 
and the Club is more than pleased with the results 
of the election. The new directorate has already 
laid out a program, which gives promise of one of 
the most interesting vears since the formation of 
the Club. 

James Shaffer, who oversees the workings of the 
Milling Department, has passed the word along 
that Harry Briggs is the best tool-crib man in his 
department. By the May, we remember now that 
Harry is the only man in the Milling tool-crib; 
so, the cigars are on us. 

James Noble, Superintendent of the Bellows 
Department, has been dangerously ill for some 
weeks, suffering from typhoid fever and neuremia. 
Mr. Noble is a very popular man, and everyone 
wishes him a speedy recovery. 


No, this is not a picture of John Lohwatcr's 
family, allhough we must say that John looks proud 
enough to be tlic father of tlic merry bunch. How- 
ever, he simply happened to be the photographer, 
and, with the aid of a Kodak Self-timer, he was able 
to occupy the prominent position he has in the 

The group is a family gatliering of the most 
ardent poultry fanciers of the Breeders Association 
of the C. W. R. C. Owing to our depleted personnel 
the poultry group was suspended for this season, 
but the boys are just as enthusiastic as ever, and 
we hope next year to have a regular show of our 




This tabulation shows something with which 
all Camera Works employees are no doubt familiar, 
having seen the originals since January, 1921 . 
We thought, however, that it was worth while 
making a permanent record of just how we stand, 
and, to say that the standings of every department 
are remarkable, is putting it mildly. Every group, 
as recorded on the board, has reduced its accidents, 
and some by a considerable margin. When we 
see that in the year of 19-20 we had 86 accidents 
listed against our good name, this last record of 
23 is a revelation of what can be accomplished 
by whole-hearted co-operation. 

Our sympathy is expressed to Carrie Tornow, 
who recently suffered the loss of her mother. 

Frank Bisnett is a great believer in the point 
system. Formerly, Frank was a regular pedestrian 
both morning and evening, but now he rides to work 
in order to get on the job bright and early. Every 
"point"' counts. Frank.

liam Saalwachter was recently announced. Our 
best wishes to you, Nellie, and we're here to remark 
that friend "Bill'' surely knows a good thing when 
he sees it. 


For this issue we ha^•e selected a charming sub- 
ject in Mary Baird. It is almost superfluous to 
say much about Mar\', for everyone knows her to be 
a popular girl, both in the capacity of a forewoman 
and an operator. Most of us have known Mary 
since the year nineteen hundred ten, when she 
started to work in the Lacquer Department. Four 
years afterwards she was appointed forewoman. In 
this capacity she has displayed a faculty for se- 
curing the respect and co-operation of all those 
who work with her. 

William McCoy of the Foreign Shipping Depart- 
ment came to us with a very satisfied smile the other 
day. "^Miy so happy, "Bill'.'" we asked. "Bill" 
coyly wTote the legend: '"Norman William McCoy 
age 3 days I" No wonder papa was smiling. 





In an atmosphere of jazz music, fantastic colored 
hats and hoHday decorations, the foremen sat down 
to a turkey dinner on the evening of December 22. 
Red and green crepe, serpentine, and a regular 
Christmas tree gave the holiday note to their 
second annual Christmas party. 

The committees had planned to start things at a 
high pitch and to keep them there — and they 
succeeded. Between the courses, and while the 
orchestra was not playing, Frank Newman led the 
singing of the old favorites, or the double quartette 
warbled a plaintive ditty, or a trick cigar exploded 
under someone's nose. There was other excite- 
ment, too, as for instance, when Mr. O'Neill, who 
had been impressed at the last minute as toastmas- 
ter, produced some timely and interesting telegrams 
from Clinton N. Howard and the keeper of Eugene 
Easterly's farm. 

To everyone's surprise Mr. O'Neill then 
announced that he was only the temporary toast- 
master, and that the remainder of the party would 
be conducted by Purchasing Agent Roach. 

Spencer Hord. editor of the Kodak Magazine, 
was the principal speaker, as he had been the year 
previous. He said that he had been promised dire 
punishment in the event that he said anything 
serious, and apparently the threat had its effect, 
for the attitude of the audience indicated that 
he did not once approach the danger point. To 
say the least, Mr. Hord upheld his reputation as a 
story teller; in fact, he added a few new laurels 
with some of his side-splitters. The foremen are 
anxious to have him know tliat they greatly appre- 
ciate his talk and his company for the evening. 

After Mr. Hord came more selections by the 
double quartette, which was composed of Louis 
Richter, Sydney Clarke, Joseph Engel, John Vass, 
Arthur Rapp. William Eyer. Robert Meinhard, 
and Frank Fink, the leader. The orchestra also 
put in some hard work to aid in settling the "turk" 
comfortably. Then "Bill" Eyer was called upon 
for some of his readings, and absolutely outdid 

Toastmaster Roach now devoted himself to 
distributing presents to the foremen, calling upon 
each recipient for some sort of acknowledgment. 
This brought forth a diversity of musical and narra- 
tive talent such as had never before been displayed 
within our walls. There were stories galore. Then 
Frank Newman sang and "Bill" recited again — ■ 
and then there were more stories. 

The recital was not yet over when a two-hundred- 
pound policeman, accompanied by an internal 
revenue officer, thrust his head inside the door to 
announce that he had a warrant for the arrest of 

Robert S. Guilford. It seemed that our General 
Anastigmat Foreman was accused of violating the 
Eighteenth Amendment and, in spite of the expostu- 
lations of Mr. Higgins, Mr. Phillips and Mr. 
O'Neill, he was led from the room. However, he 
re-entered unexpectedly and announced that the 
whole affair had been "put up" on him. 

The committees were made up as follows: Finance, 
Frank Fink, chairman; George Diehl, William 
Dean and James Bohan. Stimts and Entertainment: 
George Kosel, chairman; Frank Newman, James 
Watts. Frank Quetchenback, Robert Meinhard, 
Eugene Easterly, William Roach, Howard Werner,

The Hawk-Eye Girls' Frolic will take the form 
of a Valentine party this year, to be held on Febru- 
ary 15 in the plant dining room, or thereabouts. 
It takes a lot of space for a himdred girls to frohc 
properly, and the party of the fifteenth will proba- 
bly boil over into the corridors and every other 
bit of adjacent territory. 

The general committee consists of Elvira Ladwig, 
Dorothy Morse, Marie Leimberger, Inez Prentice, 
Lyda Ladwig, Lucy Tate, Clara Smith, Pauline 
Leimberger and "Billy" Wilson. The program will 
probably include a stunt by each department, be- 
sides a new line of costumes, food, dancing, and 
general fun. The advantages of holding the frolic 
at the plant are undoubted, and provided the girls 
supply the amoimt of "pep" usually shown at their 
parties, this year's event should eclipse its two 


Another new Hawk-Eye sport was inaugurated 
on the day before Christmas, when a party of men 
sallied forth to the Flower City Gun Club's traps 
to test their prowess with the double-barreled 
kickers. As there was only one day left to do the 
Christmas shopping, the attendance at the shoot 
was not large, but the excellence of some of the 
shooting made up for the small numbers. 

Fred .\lbers won first place, as well as the extra 
special Monroe county turkey. "Bill" Klos and 
Julius Pehta were tied at only one bird less than 
Fred's score. "Bill" won the deciding toss, while 
Julius contented himself with a duck. "Duke" 
Quetchenback and "Doc" Craib put up a hard fight 
for third, Craib winning a chicken after a toss-up. 





Six months without an accident and still going! 
That is Hawk-Eye's record and it is something to 
shoot at. We should stop long enough to shake 
hands all around. The record is yours. Congratu- 
lations are due each individual Hawk-Eyete. We 
have reason to be proud and thankful that we work 
in a shop that can pull together and put over a 
stunt like that. 

Six months without an accident and still going I 
Perhaps it does not mean much to you, stated in 
those words. If not, let us look over the last half 
of 19'-20 and see what we missed in 19'-21. One 
girl received "severe contusion to back of right hand 
with slight laceration near wrist." She lost $65.37 
in wages. Somebody was saved the pain and wage 
loss of a similar accident in lO'Jl. Were you that 
somebody.^ The next UHO accident was in the 
case of a man who injured his knee. It caused 
untold suffering and cost .sl^O.OO in good hard 
money. Did you miss that by being careful in 
1921 !' Next was a young lady who fell from a 
bench and hurt her knee. It cost her $2'2.15 in lost 
wages. That was followed closely by a serious 
accident in which a man dropped a can of emery, 
breaking a bone in his foot. His wage loss was 
$•■206.13. Perhaps that was the one you missed, 
because we did not have an accident during the last 
six months of 1921. There were tliree more acci- 

dents in the last half of 1920, all small to be sure, 
but who wants even a small one.^ 

Lets keep up the good work begun last July. 
Let's keep on cultivating the habit of doing things 
the safe way because you cannot afford the loss 
that goes with an accident. We are furnished with 
guards and goggles. Let's use them. The com- 
pany takes every reasonable precaution for our 
protection. We are not playing fair if we do not 
use the guards. 

A Perfect Record for 1921 
But, while we are passing around the congratula- 
tions, let no one miss the Brass Department. One 
whole year without an accident. Give 'em credit I 
And the Press Department's work is probably the 
most hazardous in the plant. Mr. Haus and his 
crew simply pulled together in a way that was 
bound to produce results. Month by month, they 
built up their year's record and every man did his 
part. It is playing the game that way that counts. 
They have shown us in the past that it can be done 
and now they are out to show us that they can keep 
up the good work. One fine thing about this safety 
business is the fact that in the rivalry and competi- 
tion between departments, the losers can cheer 
mighty hard for tlie winners. There is no question 
but that we are expressing the sentiment of all

Hawk-Fye when we offer hearty congratulations 
to Mr. Ilaus and his safety gang. 

There are a lot of other people about the plant 
who always deserve special attention when we are 
talking about safety at Hawk-Eye. We are glad 
to admit that the list is so long that we hardly dare 
begin it for fear of not knowing where to stop. 
The way the work has been going lately a list of our 
safety boosters would constitute a directory of the 
whole plant. We must, therefore, limit ourselves 
to publishing a photograph of the people who might 
be called the captains of the safety drive in the last 
half of ion. By this we mean the Safety Com- 
mittee, which functioned during that period. It is 
to these men and women, and to their ever vigilant 
chairman, George Aulenbacher. that a large measure 
of the credit for our record must go. 

Xow that we have said a lot of nice things about 
ourselves, it is probably best to throw at least a 
small wrench into the machinery for fear of con- 
tracting a case of "swelled head." It can be shown 
that most accidents happen to new employees, or 
are caused by them. We have had no new people 
for some time, which fact has undoubtedly helped 
in the making of our good record. The question 
for us to worry about now is how to continue our 
good work when we are again growing. Xow is the 
time for us to make our plans for teaching the new 
man how to work safely. How are we going to 
bring him into the plant and through the first 
three months safely? If you can answer that 
question, you may save a few fingers, cuts, breaks, 
bruises, strains and sprains, not to mention a few 
hundred in wages. Is it worth the effort.' Think 
it over.

Although the Kodak Basketball League has been 
decently laid to rest, Coach Roach's team doesn't 
seem to be through by any means. "Bill" and 
Captain Johnson feel that Hawk-Eye had just about 
hit its stride at the turn of the year, and they 
are anxious to keep alive a sport that has always 
been popular in the plant. If they have their 
way, the Purple and Gold will continue to flash 
on the court, and a number of interesting games 
may be expected. 

Hawk-Eye was, of course, tied with Kodak Park 
for first place in the League at the time of the circuit's 
demise. ^Miile a tie is usually unsatisfactory, it 


The Pitch Button Department and some of its 
friends held a New Year's party on January 4. 
Tina Drummond, Alice Gears, and Ivy Nipe 
prepared an excellent supper and in general acted 
as the committee, which means that they did the 
work. "Billy" Wilson, of the Industrial Relations 
Department, was a guest and also officiated at the 
piano. "Syd" Leggatt hovered about in the guise 
of official "while-you-wait" photographer, and also 
unwittingly supplied one of the main features of 
the evening — the grab bag. It seems that while 
"Syd" was busy developing their group picture, 
the girls appropriated his focusing cloth and tied 
it into various knots to suit their purpose. "Syd" 
is .said to have displayed admirable restraint in 
commenting upon it. The "grabbing" came to a 
very sad end when Alice Gears' bottle of toilet 
water was dropped on the concrete floor. The 
rest of the party took place in a super-perfumed 

Louise Mehne and her sister, Delia Sanger, 
contributed a pleasing dance to the entertainment. 
Mrs. Welch was, as usual, kept busy telling fortimes. 
In the meantime the piano was being overworked 
by some of the girls, and when the regular program 
had been completed everybody joined in singing and 
dancing for the balance of the evening. 

Hilda Specht, of the Payroll Department, has 
announced her engagement to Harold Murphy. 
We offer our congratulations to Mr. Mm-phy and 
our best wishes to both. 

Esther Meyers has finally confided to us that she 
is engaged to be married to '"Jack" Slagenhauf. 
We wish Esther and "Jack" the best of luck. As for 
the Drafting Department, where Esther works, 
it is now ready to go into mourning at any time. 


Elmore A. Ingleby, our famous athlete from the 
Cost Department, and Florence Scherer were mar- 
ried on December 31. We don't know how it 
was for the lady, but it was all very sudden for us. 
This was probably due to the fact that "Ing" tried 
to "beat" the income tax collector by squeezing 
the event into the old year. However, there was 
time for his multitudinous friends to remember 
him with a gift, which he has asked us to acknowl- 
edge for him. 

may have been just as well in the case of the League 
to leave the decision up in the air, since the schedule 
was not completed. 

"Bill" Roach simply chortles when someone 
calls his team a gallery of antiques. Why should he 
worry about his old men so long as they can be 
called upon at any time to pull a game out of the 
fire.* Hawk-Eye lost its only game, the second one 
with Kodak Park by a score that was decisive 
enough at the end, but which required an extra 
period. Outside of that game, the sailing was 
fairly smooth, albeit the Camera Works nearly 
tripped us up in the last League game. 


The Cleaning and Inspecting Department was 
first in line for the December holiday festivities, its 
Christmas party being celebrated on December 21 
in the girls' dining room. Supper was served at six 
o'clock, and it was of a quality and profuseness that 
would be hard to duplicate. 

Mr. Newman opened the after-dinner entertain- 
ment with a series of original songs, accompanied 
by Lyda Ladwig at the piano. Then came a 
recitation by Daisy Shoemaker, and a piano solo by 
Loretta Welch. Anna Enders with a vocal solo 
held up her end of the program. Margaret Duske's 
contribution was a series of impersonations por- 
traying "Friday Afternoon at School." Pauline 
Leimberger completed the program with a vocal 
selection. To close the evening the girls sang popu- 
lar songs and danced. 

The party was the first of its kind undertaken by 
the girls of the department in some time, and its 
outcome was worthy of all the planning and work 
bestowed upon its preparation. 

^Margaret Duske acted as chairman for the whole 
affair, assisted by Loretta Welch, Anna Enders, 
Loretta Ereth, Helen Sullivan, Lyda Ladwig, Mil- 
dred Zachnian, Deltha Campbell, Mrs. Owens, 
MavTue Buckley, Elvira Ladwig and Pauline Leim- 

Among the Christmas gifts in the Cleaning and 
Inspecting Department was a diamond received by 
Lillian Karweick from Charles Deissenger. We 
extend our best wishes. 

Mr. and Mrs. Eugene L. Crossett of Holley, 
New York, announce the engagement of their 
daughter Eileen, to oiu" o^mi Frederick E. Altman, 
of the Scientific Department. Congratulations, 

We are sorry to report the death of Mrs. M. A. 
Mackay, which occurred on January 10. Mrs. 
Mackay was the Mother of William Mackaj% of 
the Wood Finishing Department, and the grand- 
mother of Vera Mackay, to each of whom we extend 
our sincere sympathy.

Some dinner! signed nearly 300 chemists, who, 
with wives and friends, made the largest number 
which the Rochester section of the American 
Chemical Society had ever entertained outside of 
that never-to-be-forgotten snring meeting. 

To have tlie president of the largest scientific 
society in the world speak before a section twice 
in the same year is a noteworthy record. Dr. 
Edgar E. Smith, who has again been elected presi- 
dent of the American Chemical Society, admitted 
that he liad begim to feel at home, when speaking 
before the Rochester section. Dr. Smith was 
introduced by Dr. Rush Rhees, president of the 
University of Rochester. Perhans it was because 
of the long friendship between these two great 
educators that Dr. Rhees showed such warmth in 
his introduction. At any rate, the applause that 
greeted the "Father of American Chemists" was 
proof positive of his great popularity. 

Although Dr. Smith spoke on the topic of "Some 
of Our Early American Organic Chemists," he so 
spiced the topic with bits from his own personal 
experience, and humorous situations that the subject 
became vivid to his least technical listener. 

In the absence of Dr. H. T. Clarke, chairman of 
the Rochester section, Mr. O. I. Chorman, vice- 
chairman, took charge of the meeting. Mr. 
Chorman called for a rising vote of appreciation for 
Dr. Smith's address. A wave of people rising, and a 
surge of prolonged plaudits attested the popularity 
of the evening's speaker. 

A good old-fashioned "Paul Jones," directed by 
Mr. Banker, broke up what little formality there 
was, and paved the way for two hours of waltzes, 
fox trots, and one-steps to the soothing strains of 
George Willis's orchestra. 

Dean and Mrs. WTiipple, of the new medical 
college, and J. H. Haste, manager of Kodak Park, 
were among those present. 

The efforts of Arthur E. Williams, working with 
E. M. Billings, secretary of the Rochester section, 
in arranging the details, are greatly appreciated. 
A vote of thanks was given Fred Grastorf and his 
loyal corps of assistants for their efficient manage- 
ment of the gustative portion of the evening's 


Truly, there is nothing which creates that perfect 
spirit of good fellowship like a real dinner, well 
cooked and well served, such as was enjoyed by over 
550 Kodak Park foremen, their wives and friends on 
the occasion of the Third Annual Ladies' Party 
given on Thursday evening, January 12, in the 
Recreation Building. The dinner was excellent, 
and a word of congratulation to Fred Grastorf is 
surely not amiss. During the meal "Sam" Parry, 
leading the singing, inserted much "pep" in the 
gathering, while Taylor's orchestra entertained 
with many fine selections. 

The party then adjourned to the Assembly Hall, 
where the entertainment was given. First of all 
the "movies" of the Cobourg boat trip held last 
August, were shown, following which the Rochester 
Operatic Quartet rendered several selections. 
The Foremen's Club "None-Such" Minstrels, 
featuring Charles Schlansker as interlocutor and 
James Hart and "Art" Williams as end men, came 
next, making the usual "hit." Solos were sung by 
James A. Hart, "Ben" McMillan, "Art" Williams, 
Ralph J. Smith, George Englehardt and a special 
number by George Frank and the Octette. The 
absence of Ferre MarzlufI was keenly felt and 
regretted. The novelty fox trot by "Jim" Hart 
and Susan LaDine came as a complete surprise. 

literally sweeping some people off their feet, includ- 
ing Susan. 

"Jim" Hart and "Art" Williams as "The Two 
Tramps" made a well balanced vaudeville team 
and dispensed many clever jokes in connection with 
happenings and individuals familiar to all. The 
dancing of Clara Luce, which completed the 
entertainment program, was of a finished character 
and hugely enjoyed. The last hour was devoted 
to dancing, the program consisting of several 
"old fashioned" numbers. 

The splendid support given the Committee by 
the members of the organization is appreciated. 
This annual event is one of the biggest things on the 
Club's program, and every effort is expended to live 
up to the reputation established in the past. 

The Committee in charge consisted of Thomas 
Frost, chairman, Charles Schlansker, Arthur T. 
("Jerry") Welles, Robert A. Weber, James A. Hart, 
and George Gray, assisted by the officers of the 

The girls of the Black Paper Department heartily 
enjoyed a noon-hour banquet held on December 23. 
The table was decorated with Santa Claus place 
cards and a basket of sweetheart roses for a center 
piece, the latter being a Christmas donation. 




We take this opportunity to announce the 
appointment of R. C. Hands as Safety Engineer of 
the Kodak Park Works. Mr. Hands assumed 
the duties of this position on the first of the year. 

"Captain" Hands, as he is generally known, has 
been employed at Kodak Park since August, 1919, 

n. < . H.\XDS 

coming here directly upon his release from military 
service. He is a member of the Frank L. ("Ace"j 
Guillod Post of the American Legion, and holds a 
reserve commission as Captain of Engineers in the 
U. S. Army. 

In taking over this new work. Mr Hands will be 
under the general supervision of \. A. Ruttan, 
and will have the benefit of the latter's knowledge 
and experience as president of the Rochester 
Safety Council. An intensive campaign will be 
launched along this line, and the co-operation and 
help of the employees are earnestly solicited and 
expected. This work is primarily for the benefit 
of the employees, with a view to reducing hazards 
of all kind, and bringing the conditions under 
which we work as near to the ideal as ])ossible. 
You can become a factor in the success of this move- 
ment by starting the new year with a resolution 
to be a little more careful in your daily work, and 
by reporting to the Safety Engineer or to your 
departmental safety committee, any condition 
which you consider dangerous. 


The Kodak Park Octette, under the direction of 
George W. Engclharflt. contributed to the success 
of the meeting held under tlic auspices of the ^'. M. 
C. A. and the Federation of Men's Riblc Classes 
in the Lyceum Theater on Sunday, Jantiary 8. 
Their singing was greatly enjo>ed, and Erwin E. 
Shutt, chairman, in thanking them, complimented 
the Kodak Park organization on its ability to 
maintain such an excellent singing club. We are 
proiul of our men. not only for their talent and power 
of acliievement, but also for their willingness to help 
along in anything of a worthy nature. 


Good use is being made of the Kodak Park Assem- 
bly Hall during the winter months. Realizing that 
some form of recreation is essential to the welfare 
of those emi)loyees who live at a distance from the 
plant, the advantages of the mammoth Kodak Park 
hall are being applied in numerous ways. 

The Monday noon Volley Ball League is creating 
much interest, as is the noon hour dancing. Occa- 
sionally, there is a speaker or entertainer, as on 
Tuesday, January 3, when Jess Pugh, the cele- 
brated Redpath humorist, visited the works. There 
is something doing every noon, ^"hy not come 
up.^ You'll enjoy it. 


William Blowers, of the Reel Manufacturing 
Department, began work with the Eastman Kodak 
Company on February 3, 1897. He was put to 
work blanking out spool ends, which were then 
made of brass. At that time, it required the 
combined efforts of himself and four other operators 
to blank and perfect a spool end. Twenty-five 
years ago these five operators could complete about 
forty thousand ends per day, while today "Bill" 
alone, with the aid of modern machines, will blank 
and complete many times that number. 

Mr. Blowers can boast of the proud and enviable 
record of never having been tardy in all of his 
quarter of a century's service. 


So here's to you, "Bill. ' for at least twenty-five 
more years of the same kind of stuff, and the best 
wishes of your fellow workers and of our department 
head — J. S. Harmon. 




The consistent bowling of the Ponies during the 
past four weeks has enabled them to retain their 
rather uncertain hold on first place in the K. P. 
A. A. Bowling League. So close is the race, how- 

Secretary, K. P. A. A. Bowling League 

ever, that a slump in two or three matches would 
mean a decided change, with almost any one of the 
first five teams coming out on top. The final 
outcome is by no means settled, and, with several 
weeks still to go, it would not be wise to prophesy. 

A new high mark for three games has been estalj- 
lished by the Film team, they having bunched 
scores of 1007, 918, and 947 for a total of 2,872, 
which will not be easy to pass. In the mdividual 
standings. Thistle, of the Film, leads with an 
average of 192 for 34 games. Servise of the Head- 
lights, is second with 189 for 36 games, and Goebel 
and Manhold, Blue Ribbons, next with 186 and 185 
respectively. Hart, of the Ponies, is fifth with 183. 

First place in the Yard League is being earnestly 
battled for by the Steel Shed and the Yard teams. 
Nip and tuck, two outfits are struggling, with 
first one, then the other showing a slight advantage. 
All of this, of course, increases the interest and 
stimulates spirit in the contests. 

In the Kodee League, of Building 29, the Panchros 
hold a comfortable lead with the Positives in second 
place. Bowling is enjoying a most popular season 
at Kodak Park and affords recreation to more than 
one hundred employees. 


Harold Servise, the crack little Kodak Park 
bowler, employed in the Yard Office, was married 
on Saturdav, December 17, to Jean Fancher of 
the Pav Roll Record Office. 

We extend our deepest sympathy to C. F. Wadt. 
of the Emulsion Coating Department, in the loss 
of his father on December 29. 


Edward W. Dotterer, who, for the past thirteen 
years, had been a faithful emploj^ee of the Kodak 
Park Works, died on Wednesday, December 14. 
after a brief illness. He was connected with the 
Sheet Metal Department as Assistant Foreman, 
in charge of estimating and planning. Mr. Dot- 
terer spent three years at Kodak Heights, Toronto, 
having charge of the sheet metal work during the 
construction of the new plant. His many frietids at 
Kodak Park and elsewhere will feel his loss very 

Assisting at the funeral as honorary bearers were 
Frank Hall, Irwin Stewart, Albert Shepler, Oscar 
Anderson, James Savage and Albert Smith. The 
active bearers were Matthew Johnson, Edward 
Doyle, Thomas Gaylord, Linden Steelsmith, Ed- 
ward O'Brien, and Carl Holt. The Sheet Metal 
Department was closed Friday afternoon, and the 
employees attended the services in a body. 

W^e are glad to Melcome Martha Maxwell back 
to the Black Paper Department, after a two months 
sick leave. 


Mr. Dotterer was a member of the Loyal Order of 
Moose, and also of the Kodak Park Foremen's 
Club. He leaves his mother, two sisters, and a 
brother, besides a host of friends at Kodak Park. 




A decidedly novel attraction was staged by "Art" 
Williams and Marguerite Ellis on Friday noon, 
December 23, in the Kodak Park Assembly Hall. 
It was called the K. P. A. A. Christmas Party, 
and came as a complete surprise. "Chief" Ruck- 
holdt, the "emergency" man of Kodak Park, was 
called into service and went through the dining 
halls inviting the people to attend. Between 
eight and nine hundred employees assembled in 
the hall, which was decorated for the occasion. 

The program included selections by the K. P' 
A. A. Male Octette, recitations by little Edith 
Mae Hooker, three-year-old daughter of Samuel 
Hooker, an employee of the Kodak Park dining 
hall, and dancing, music being furnished by the 
Association orchestra under the direction of Fred 

"Art" Williams, on behalf of the officers and 
directors of the Association, extended the season's 
greetings to the members.

Department 50 1 4 .200 

.\t the end of the second week of January, two 
ties existed in the K. P. A. A. Departmental 
Basketball League, the Research and Soccer Club 
being at a deadlock for the lead, and the Office and 
Department 50 in a similar situation over the cellar 

The game played on January 9, in which the 
Soccer Club defeated the "Scientists," w'as a "nip 
and tuck" affair throughout, the 'football players 
finally winning by the score of 20 to 18. This was 
the first defeat for the Research team since the 
opening of the season. Department 50 boys, now 
that they have broken into the win column by 
defeating the Office, may be expected to go farther, 
as their outfit is a first-rate one. 


Now that tile Kodak Ba.sketball League has 
endedlits season, the Kodak Park team, through 
its manager, George Neal, is arranging and play- 
ing a number of independent games, mostly with 
out-of-town teams. So far, dates have been 
booked with Pittsford, Canandaigua, Buffalo 
Lincolns, Nunda, Syracuse, and a two-day trip to 
include Corning and Elmira. Some of these games 
have already been played, and, while the Park 
team is not as strong as in former years, it has 

been reasonably successful in stacking up against 
these fast outfits. 

This year's plan of an inter-plant league was 
quite successful. No one could question the ex- 
istence of rivalry between the different plants, 
and the determination of each team to "cop" 
the championship. Kodak Park showed itself 
equal to the best, with Hawk-Eye as the most 
dangerous contender.

About eighty people, members of the Kodak 
Park Soccer Chili, with their wives and friends, were 
guests of President Ralph Breary and his brother, 
Harry Breary, at a banquet held at the Oriental 



Restaurant, on Thursday evenino-. January 19. 
Dinner was served at 8 p. m., following which 
remarks were heard from a niunber of the members. 
A variety vaudeville entertainment was given, all 
by talent selected from the organization. The 
remainder of the evening was devoted to dancing. 

The record of the Kodak Park team during the 
past fall series was remarkable in many ways. 
After losing several good men in the spring-, the 
team was reorganized and went through the fall 
schedule without a defeat \mtil the final play-off of 
the tie to determine the League championship, when 
our boj's lost in a most unsatisfactory contest played 
under the possible conditions. However, the 
spirit of the Club has not been dampened to any 

extent, and, witli tlie lO'^l team intact, great things 
are expected next season. The change recently made 
in the playing rules, wliereby the schedule will 
start in the fall rather than the spring as heretofore, 
will assuredly prove more satisfactory. Postpone- 
ments and ties will then be played off during the late 
spring and summer rather than in mid-winter. 
The Kodak Park people are behind the team, and 
mean to do everything in their power to help the 
players win. 

The annual election of officers for 1922 was held 
on Wednesday, December 28, and the following 
were chosen: president. Ralph Breary; vice- 
president, John Ackroyd: .secretary. Leigh Rife; 
manager, Edward Allardice, treasurer, Percy Gunn: 
financial secretary, Harry Lee; trainer. "Doc' 
Yates; assistant trainer, James Walker; selection 
committee, William Rollo and Albert Harper. 

The girls of the Finished Film Office were the 
guests of Louise Hagele at a dinner given at her 
home on December 22. During the evening games 
were played and demonstrations of "talent" 
offered by several of those present. 

Somebody was asking the other day if Bill Jones 
owns his own home or rents it. 

'■Rents it," was the emphatic reply. 

"How do you know ? 

"He strikes matches on the paint." 




Speaking of good times, we will have to go a long 
way to find anything to surpass the Community 
Night entertainment given by the K. P. A. A. for 
the employees of the Finished Film Department on 
Friday evening, January G. By the way, this 
Community Night idea is a corking good stunt. 
The odds are all in favor of the member. You 
don't Jiave to buy any tickets; each member is 
presented with one good for himself or herself, 
and wife, "luibby," sweetheart, or one of the kids. 
Then, you saunter down to the Assembly Hall, 
and are shown to a seat — first come, first served. 
You look around and see "Mamie" and her "beau," 
"Jennie" and her girl chum, "Joe" and his mother, 
and everyone else from your department, and you 
have such an "at home" feeling. 

One thousand persons were at the Finished Film 
entertainment. The first number on the program 
was a dance by little Eleanor Ford, sister of Anna 
Ford of the Spooling Department. John Leckinger, 
of the Sheet Film, sang popular songs, and Clara 
Luce, of the Rewinding Department, assisted by 
Thomas Julian, demonstrated a novelty fox trot. 

These numbers may be classed as amateur talent, 
but they were mighty good, and the Film Depart- 
ment has every reason to be proud. Three profes- 
sional acts followed, which also made a big hit. 
Then there was the "movie" — "The Fly Cop" — - 
a real comedy, which gave everyone a lot of laughs, 
and "cinched" the show. 

About two minutes were needed to clear the chairs 
from the floor, and then the dancing began, while 
on the second floor Five Himdred and Pedro were 
played by those who wished. 

Much of the credit for the success of this enter- 
tainment belongs to Florence Doescher, for the able 
and thorough manner in which she, through an 
eSicient organization in the Film Department, 
created interest among the employees, which was 
responsible for the very satisfying attendance. 

All in all it was "some" party, and the other 
departments are now clamoring for "their night." 
"Art" Williams has promised that there will be a 
party for everyone, but we can assure you he will 
have a hard time to surpass "Film Night." 


No doubt you have noticed the changes recently 
made in the Assembly Hall — the erection of the 
mammoth stage at the west end with footlights, 
drop curtain and everything else found in a regular 
theater, the new motion picture screen, re-location of 
the basketball court and motion picture booth, 
re-arrangement of lights, painting, etc., and won- 
dered how it all came about. 

The need of a stage has long been realized, but, 
due to the cost of construction, it had never been 
undertaken. Upon the appointment of "Art" 
Williams as manager of Recreational and Athletic 
Activities, A. Lee MacFarland, long recognized as 
one of the hardest workers of the Association, was 
called into consultation, with the result that it was 
put over, together with all the other improvements. 
"Mac" is the one who did it^ along with a crowd 
of E. & AL workers. The work was done on the 
men's own time, evenings and Saturday afternoons, 
without any financial compensation whatsoever. 

It is this spirit wliicli will develop the Association 
to the high ])lane to which we aspire. This one 
thing, the giving by a few members of their time 
and good will, for the good of their friends, is a noble 
gift, and our appreciation cannot be measiu-ed in 

Following are the names of those to whom we are

The members of the Kodak Park Fur and Feather 
Club have expressed themselves as entirely satisfied 
with the IQ'il Exhibit, not only in respect to the 
interest taken by those who belong, but also with 
the attitude of the public, the attendance this year 
being greater than at any previous show. The 
usual activities and meetings of the club are being 
carried on with the view of preparing for even 
greater things next fall. 

The success of the first exhibit of the Kodak Park 
Hobby Club held in December, has encouraged the 
members to continued effort. Aleetings are held 
every Wednesday noon in the K. P. A. A. Office, 
and considerable trading is being carried on in 
stamps, coins and curios. Persons wishing to join 
are invited to send their names to Howard Carey, 
Building 34; Paid M. Lansjc, Building 33\ or to the 
K. P A. A. Office. 

Members of the Kodak Park Camera Club are 
preparing for the annual election of officers for I9ii. 
and j)erfecting plans for the activities contemplated 
during the remainder of the winter. 

The employees of the Film Spooling Department 
mourn the loss of Madeline Meinweisser, who died 
on December "2-2. ALadeline had lieen employed 
at Kodak Park about three years and was very well 
liked bv evervone.

Kris Kringle Visits Billers 
Old Santa Clans paid a prejnature visit to Kodak 
Office on December 21, when thirty girls of the 
Billing Department held a Christmas party on the 
third floor. The guest of the evening (not excepting, 
of course, his highness, St. Nick), was Mrs. Charles 
Locke, a former member of the department, who 
favored during the evening with several enjoyable 
solos. Supper was served at 6 :.'30 and the remainder 
of the evening was spent in dancing, games, and 
the distribution of gifts by Santa Claus. The 
committee consisting of "Winifred Flynn, Grace 
Hallifax and Louise McLaughlin, wishes to express 
its appreciation to Walker Fielding for his assistance 
in making the party a success. 

To the Captain from the Crew 
One of the Christmas gifts received by "Bill" 
Shewman, of the Service Department, was a heavy 
pair of gloves for use when driving his balky 
Chevrolet. The gloves were presented by members 
of his "crew" — the bunch lie has been taking home 
every night in his car. The gift to "Skipper Bill" 
was intended as a mark of the "crew's" appreciation 
of his kindness. Incidentally "Bill's" craft has 
never .seen the slightest signs of mutiny. 

Merriment in the Mail Department 
Twenty-one members of the Mail Department 
feastern division), congregated in the Girls' 
Rest Room on a recent Thursday evening for one 
of the prettiest parties of the season. A chicken 
supper was served with Millie Gommenginger, 
Alpha Adsit and Mildred Hess acting as waitresses. 
Candles, gay colored caps and favors and effective 
table decorations gave the affair a festive spirit. 
.\fter supper a grab bag created much laughter and 
enthusiasm. Games and dancing concluded the 
evening's program. 

Also the Stocli Department 

The Stock Department Office girls had a holiday 
dinner party in the Rest Room, Wednesday even- 
ing, December 21. 

Each girl received a gift and the Christmas 
atmosphere was genuine. 

A File Department Party 
Ruth Neison was the guest of honor at a pretty 
luncheon given in the Girls' Rest Room by members 
of the File Department. The party was a birthday 
surprise and a Christmas celebration all in one, and 
needless to say the Christmas tree was not lacking. 

With the Order Girls 
Another recent party was that of the Order 
Department engineered by Elsie Berg, Lois Green- 
wood, Theresa Hergenrother, and Marion Lawn. 
Jessie Wilkinson acted as toastmistress and cheer- 
leader and introduced Miss Williams as the depart- 
ment guest. Music and dancing concluded the 
evening, with an interpretative dance by Harriet 
Dank and Florence Wright. 

The messengers of the Mail Department were 
happy at the holiday time, being generously remem- 
bered throughout the building. The Mail Depart- 
ment took pleasure in furthering this happiness by 
presenting each one of them with a sum of money. 

Santa Claus came to the Testing and Packing 
Department on Christmas eve and left a diamond 
scarf pin for Mr. Durfee, with the good wishes of 
the Department. 

The Testing and Packing Department was made 
happy by Christmas messages of good cheer from 
our old friends, Camilla Skinner Klinenburger. 
Lois Manly Haines, Belle White, who is now 
recovering her health, and Vertrip Flynn. 

A live-wire party was given at her home by 
Huyla Kaufman, of the Advertising Department. 
"Bill" Mead, in person, together with "Al" Stillson 
and "Sam" Marcus, furnished music for the evening. 

On Saturday noon, the day before Christmas, 
the members of the Mail Department (western 
division) celebrated the holiday with a Grab Bag. 
Judging from tlie merriment which the contents 
of the bag occasioned, the affair was a festive one. 


Jose D. Aponte left New York on the steamship 
"Siboney," sailing January 7th, for Cuba. ISIr.

Four speakers appeared on the program of the 
last monthly meetmg of the Kodak Progress Society, 
on the evening of January 11. First on tlie list 
was Edward Curtis, whose talk covered the routine 
of the Order Department. He was followed by 
Howard Wilcox, who gave a detailed description of 
the work of the Billing Department. The system 
used in our Credit Department was then explained 
by Edward Junker. The concluding number on 
the program, given by John Gordier, bore the title: 
"The Duties of a Bookkeeper." 

The membership was raised to thirty-six by the 
admission of George ("Doc"'j Rockwell and Clarence 

A list of questions covering auditing and account- 
ing subjects and prepared by C. J. Van Niel, C. H.

basis of an open discussion at the February meeting, 
at which the speakers will be Herbert Rayten and

The Kodak Office girls basketball team started 
off the season right by travelling out to Fairport 
and trimming the Perinton girls 3 to 0. The Kodak 
girls put up a good brand of basketball and can be 
counted upon to put additional games on the right 
side of the ledger before spring. 

"Millie" Lambert, the stalwart forward of the 
Office team, was the individual luminary of the 
contest, registering all of the three points that were 
made. The rest of the players were Captain Clara 
Efford, Isa belle Koch, Ida Clark, and Ruth Sullivan. 


During the last month we have had with us Mr. 
J. J. Rouse of Kodak Australasia, Melbourne, 
Australia, and Dr. O. L. Harries of Kodak Societe

A picked team of bowlers from the Kodak Office 
Girls' League opened their outside season on January 
18 at Genesee Hall rolling the crack five of the 
Yawman and Erbe Company, who have been burn- 
ing up the alleys in the L A. R. A. I^eague and inde- 
pendently for three seasons. 

As was to be expected in the face of such opposi- 
tion our girls lost out by a considerable margin. 
They however acquitted themselves very creditably, 
especially when the fact is considered that they were 
rolling on strange alleys. 

The Y. and E. girls did some remarkable pinning, 
especially in the first game when they totalled 806, 
a score which many a men's team fails to equal. 

Miss Davis with scores of 178 and 168 and Mrs. 
Steele with 167 and 177 were the leading lights for 
the file makers, while Florence Wright with marks 
of 136 and 157 set the pace for our team. 
\^ Miss Davis accounted for four successive strikes 
in the first game, while both she and Mrs. Steele had 
a pair of doubles in the second. 

Millie Gommenginger finished up strong with a 
triple to make her second game score 154.

As this issue of the Magazine went to press, the 
girls of the Kodak Office team were eagerly prepar- 
ing for their second alley contest which was sched- 
uled with the Camera Works girls for Tuesday 
evening, January 31, at the Genesee. The Camera 
girls in their two seasons of bowling have developed 
some nifty pinners, and it was apparent that oiu* 
lassies had a sizable task on their hands in their 
attempt to subdue their over-the-bridge rivals. 

The Office line-up for this second match showed 
the same girls who bowled against Y. & E., while 
Camera Works was to be represented by Margaret 
Murphy, Laura Musson, Delia Meerdink, Bertha 
Schmidt, and Florence Waterstratt. 


The enthusiasm of the girls of the Kodak Office 
Bowling League't let up for a single instant; 
in fact, the rivalry between the teams is keener 
than ever as the margin lietween them narrows. 

The Service Department, which has been in the 
lead for .some time, is now only one game ahead of 
the Sales, who, in turn, are only the same distance 
ahead of the Finishing. 

The Order Department, while in fifth position, is 
still to be reckoned with. This team recently burst 
into fame's corridor by amassing the highest team 
total for a single game, while Florence Wright of 
this team holds the individual record of 166, the 
honors formerly held by Millie Gommenginger of 
the Mail Department, with a mark of 161. 



Judging from the numerous notes in the adjoining 
columns, Santa Claus put in a busy Christmas 
season around Kodak Office and not the least 
important part of the activities was the sprinkling 
of a generous supply of diamond rings to (and fromj 
some of our fellow workers. As a consequence we 
are able to announce the following engagements. 

Gladys Hanse, of the Sales Department, to 
Treighton Wheaton of Rochester. 

Flora Weiss, of the Sales Department, to Vincent 
O'Connor of Rochester. 

In the Tabulating Department we have the 
engagement of Dorothy Steele to Raymond Johnson. 

The Advertising Department announces the 
engagement of Albert Stillsonand Madeline Lensing. 

Anna Dre.xel, of the Receiving Department, is 
engaged to Harry J. Spring of New York City. 

Helen McMannis, of the same department, to 
Thomas F. Connolly of Geneva, N. Y. 

Two more of our fellow workers whose engage- 
ment has recently been announced are Norman 
McMillen, of the Stock House Auditing Depart- 
ment, and Margaret Jack, of the Stenographic 

The engagement of Lois Greenwood, of the Order 
Department, to John O'Keefe, is also on the list. 

Moving to the Stock Department we learn of the 
engagement of Rena Bradley to Donald Reach of 
this city. 


Marion Howe, formerly employed at Kodak 
Office, was married on Mondaj', January 2, to 
Frank Hayes, of the Camera Works, at the Cathe- 
dral Chapel. 


Loretta Jones, of the Tabulating Department, 
recently gave a dinner party at the Odenbach, 
followed by a theater party in honor of Odella 
Hurley, who was married to George Kohlman of 
the Rochester Police Department, Thursday, 
Januarv 6. 


The Finishing Dejjartment congratulates Mr. 
and Mrs. C. W. Robinson on the birth of a son,

Those who worked with Ruth Voss, formerly of 
the Billing Department, will be glad to learn that 
she is the mother of a liaby boy, born on December

".4 short life, and a merry one". 

AFTER six weeks of high calibre 
basketball, with two extra-period 
contests, and Hve games decided by three 
points or less, the Kodak Basketball 
League came to a sudden and untimely 
end at mid-season, when, on Friday, 
January 13, the Executive Committee, 
because of rapidly-dwindling attendance, 
decided to cancel the balance of the 
schedule. Whether the fact that the 
meeting was held on Friday, the 13th, 
had anything to do with the demise of 
the court circuit is, liowever. problemat- 
ical. When the attendance reached the 
low figure of fifty-two for the double- 
header of January 11, the officers of 
the League decided it was high time to 
call a halt on an activity which apj^ealed 
to so few of the members of the organi- 
zation, lest the League, by continuing, 
should go even deeper in the hole. ISIost 
of the teams in the League are planning 
to keep on playing as independent organ- 
izations, and there will doubtless be 
plenty of Kodak basketball for the few 
who want it. 

The wind-up of the season found Kodak 
Park and Hawk-Eye in a tie for first 
place, with Kodak Office and Camera 
Works trailing in the order named. The 
luckless Camera Workers showed im- 
provement in every start, but were never 
quite able to nose out their opponents, 
although, in the final game played they 
had Coach Roach of the Hawk-Eyes 
rainbow-hued with fright, and nothing 

but the emergency injection of "Wib" 
Woodams into the Roach line-up saved 
them from defeat. 

The games of December 21 provided 
the fans with their second extra-period 
struggle in as many weeks, when Kodak 
Park and Hawk-Eye ended the regular 
playing session deadlocked at twelve-all. 
Li the extra period the Parkers, displaying 
their strongest line-up, with "Tommy" 
Thompson at the pivot, and Heaney in 
at guard, rushed through the Hawk 
defense for a "20 to 13 decision. On the 
same evening, Kodak Office "copped" 
the most one-sided game of the season, 
turning back their State Street neighbors, 
the Camera Workers, 32 to 7. 

After a week's holiday lay-off, Kodak 
Office on January 4, crowded Hawk-Eye 
from start to finish, and was nosed out 
by only three points in a 20 to 17 score. 
Captain Johnson of Hawk-Eye, with five 
field baskets, was the big noise of this 
game. Camera Works, showing a decid- 
ed improvement in form, held the Park 
even until late in the contest in the second 
game of the evening, Init the Ridge outfit 
finished with 19 points to the State 
Streeters' 12. 

The last night of the .season provided 
the best basketball of the year, and the 
fifty-two paid admissioners who braved 
the snowstorm of January 11 saw two 
games, each decided by a single point. 
In the opener, Kodak Park kept a slight 
lead on the Office team throughout tlie 



battle, and finished np 1.5 to 14, althongh 
"Jolninie" Marcello, with an excellent 
floor game and "Toddy" Diehl, with 
gilt-edge foul-shooting, fought hard to 
overcome the handicaji imposed on the 
Office team by the absence of Captain 
McNeil. A rejuvenated Camera Works 
quintette, built around "Pud" Duggan, 
threw the scare of the season into the 
Hawk-Eye forces in the final encounter, 
and it was a surprised bunch of Hawks, 
indeed, who found themselves at half 
time on the short end of a 12-6 tally. 
Frantically, Coach Roach sigiialled to 
"Wib" Woodams, reposing peacefully 
in civilian clothes on the side-lines; 
witli eager haste he dropped the veteran 
into a uniform and rushed him into the 
fray witli but ten minutes left to play. 
That bit of strategy enabled the lens- 
makers to end up in a tie with Kodak 
Park for the leadership, for said Woodams 
"steved" and "steved again." Often, 
he missed, but in his short ten minutes 
he caged three badly-needed baskets. 
The last of these — a regular Frank 
Merriweather — came with but ten sec- 
onds to play, and the Camera Works 
quint leading by a single point. At 
this juncture, Woodams took the ball 
in mid-court and sifted it through with- 
out touching the rim to give Hawk-Eye 
its slim margin of victory. Final score, 
18 to 17. For Camera Works, Duggan 
was the life of the party, being personally 

responsible for all but two of the seventeen 

The final scoring records indicate tliat 
Hawk-Eye had the best point-garnering 
machine, while Kodak Park produced 
the strongest defense. Kodak Office, 
despite its lowly position at the finish, 
ran up a total score greater than the 
totals of its opponents, solely because of 
its one lop-sided victorv over Camera 

We are sorry, indeed, to see this new 
activity vanish from our midst, especially 
in view of the high class of basketball 
and the red hot competition which has 
marked every game, and trust that 
another winter will see new heights of 
interest in this strenuous winter sport. 


GOMES now the announcement of a 
new arrival in court circles, the 
Kodak Cubs, a team in the hundred- 
pound class. This quintette includes on 
its roster Alexander Schewe, Ralph Cotl- 
ding, Lawrence Weiss, and Robert Mc- 
Kague from Camera Works, and Oscar 
Grundler from Kodak Office. 

The Cubs have the use of the Brick 
Church Institute Court on Friday nights 
from 5:30 to 7:00, and would like to hear 
from other teams in their class. Organi- 
zations wishing to accept this defy should 
communicate with Alexander Schewe, 
manager, at Camera Works. 




DESPITE holiday layoffs the bowlers 
of the various Kodak leagues man- 
aged to establish several new high records 
during the four weeks ending January 
17th, some of which are extremely 
creditable to the organizations in question. 

The Film Bowlers of the K. P. A. A. 
League recently rung in a three-game 
total of !2,87''2 to start off the new year 
right and established a mark as yet 
unequalled in any of the other Kodak 

It has remained, however, for the girl 
bowlers to eclipse their former marks 
all down the line. In the Kodak Office 
Girls' League, Millie Gommenginger's 
two-game record of '•296 is the only one 

which remains undisturbed. Neva Potts 
holds the new high single game with 172, 
while the Tabulating Department carries 
off the honors for high game and high 
two games, with marks of 591 and 1,098. 
In the Camera Girls League, Delia 
Meerdink holds a record of 495 for high 
three games, while the Juniors have 
recorded the high team game of 7'-2'-2 and 
high three games with 2, 166, marks of 
which many a men's team might well be 
proud. As the Magazine went to press, 
much interest attached to the proposed 
match between the five high girls of this 
League and a team of men from the Elm 
League, arranged by Leo Nowack, who 
manages the Camera girls. 


YOU see here the Office team which 
finished second in the K. P. A. A. 
League in the summer of 1908. What a 
good training school this Leagiie proved 
can be judged from the fact that two 
of its products are now working in the 
major leagues — George Mogridge with 
the Washington Americans and Ray Gor- 
dinier with the Brooklyn Nationals. 
"Ned" Bartlett of this same Office team 
has also disported in the Southern and 

Canadian Leagues. 

Of the players shown in this picture, 
Schell, Bartlett, Manhold, Gardner, and 
Wolf are still employed at Kodak Park, 
while another member of the team, 
Roland, now works at Folmer-Century. 

Our bowling fans, too, will be interested 
to notice that the Sutton in the picture 
is none other than the famous Larry, 
whose alley prowess has twice brought 
national honors to Rochester.

With us the word "Service" is not an 
empty one, and affording it in fullest 
measure has had much to do with the 
success we today enjoy. 

Business success depends to a very 
large extent on the ability to look ahead, 
and so to be prepared to meet all newer 
and greater demands. The establishment 
of branch houses in New York, Cliicago 
and San Francisco solved the problem 
of service and distribution to the dealer, 
but there was still a weak link between 
us and the consumer. 

The great majority of dealers handling 
our amateur products, handle also a
