The Atlas Portland cement company continues to do its share toward the conditions which confront the nation. It has already donated a large section of tillable land to its employees, where about 200 of them have started vegetable gardens, the tracts being large enough to supply each man with plenty for family use during the summer and for a good store for next winter. The company put the land in shape and is aiding the "farmers" in various ways.
Arrangements have now been made by the Atlas company officials whereby any of their employees may purchase Liberty Bonds in any desired amount, the Atlas company furnishing the money necessary for the purchase of the bonds, which money is to be paid back by the employees in either a ten-month or a fifteen-month period, the interest on the deferred payments being the same as the interest that the bond bears.
Many of the Atlas employees at Hudson are subscribing to this loan, which is very gratifying to the Atlas officials.COPYRIGHT 2017 CAROLE OSTERINK
