High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 22, 1972, High Point, North Carolina In in in i f Fri by Forrest Cates this idea of planting Trees along main Street is just a peachy idea. The Way i look at it Trees Are a whole lot better than most people. Even scrubby or Pine Trees Are better than a Bunch of scrubby of people i know. Anyway even if i did no to really like Trees you catch me saying so because there Are a lot of people in this town who would Lynch you from the highest limb if they heard you say anything against Trees. Shucks id rather be against a Many a wife than against his tree. Rut nobody knew that the bully old City Council liked Trees so much until last week. Right out of the Blue mayor Rill Nencini said he thought the City or somebody ought to Plant Shade Trees on main Street 50 feet apart from one end to the other. All the rest of the Council members even the ones who Arentt crazy about going out on a limb started talking about Shade Trees and How we need More of them in High Point. Somebody remembered that the City has a Hole digging machine which sits around on its can most of the time doing nothing. Ile said what the Council ought to do is offer to dig holes free for any place of business which will Plant Trees on its premises. Everybody thought that was a Good idea too so they probably Are going to do it in addition to planting Trees 5ft feet apart on main Street. Of course one of the important things still to be worked out is what kind of Trees will be planted. The councilmen said Only a a Shade Trees. Rut eve been thinking about this for several minutes and i have just Rome up with another peachy idea. I think we ought to Plant fruit Trees along main Street. I mean where in this whole United states of America can you walk Down main Street and pick apples Between Stop lights. Or nuts by Golly we could have some Good of Hickory nut Trees to to with those Apple Trees and every Day the cd to could end that no account Hole Digger Over and crack a i mph of Hickory nuts which would go great with Coffee Breaks. The More i think about to a Trees the More i can to Walt until they get that Damn sorry Hole lilt Tutor off its can and to work the City Council had another real Good idea while they were talking about Trees. They said it would be real Nice to put a lot of hiking end Bikini trails Iii Oak Hollo Quot at Cliv i Ake Parks As suggested by a organization of local pud hikers. Councilmen oven said they May he willing for the City to spend a Little Minev on those trere which Means that they must like the idea a lot because they done to like sendin Money a lot. Anyway like i said. In mall for building Thorp trails because to Tell the truth in be never Bomi too a Are about people who ride bicycles or walk when Thuv done to have to and i inst As soon Hunch hmm at the Parks so Well know where they Are. In the furniture Industry production sales change seen by Robert Marks Enterprise staff writer the furniture Industry which has just gone through a period of mergers and acquisitions by outside companies now appears to be in the verge of a period of further tremendous changes. In the offing Are significant developments in production techniques marketing and in the use of the materials that go into the making of a piece of furniture.

In Athens tenn., said a we have got to look at the Basic changes in technology and adapt these to our labor accounts for 25 per cent of the production costs in the furniture Industry he said. A this compares to to per cent or less for labor costs in other industries. This labor involvement in our Industry has got to be faced up to. This is the problem and we must simply identify with production techniques in the Industry Are going to be changed for another reason Turbyfill indicated. A the labor is simply not available anymore a he said. But the changes to new techniques will not be without its problems Turbyfill indicated. A we must maintain the aesthetics the individuality of each piece of furniture even As we try to improve our production methods. That is Hie line we must Turbyfill noted that some manufacturers already Are experimenting with what is known As the Flat line finishing technique. In this method the various part of a piece of furniture Are finished before they Are assembled into a table or a chair or a bed. The various parts move along on a Flat surface in Assembly line fashion before they Are assembled into a table or a chair or a bed. A this is an automatic production process and it is an adaptation Nof the technology that is available a he said. Turbyfill said the Industry would lie farther alone toward Flat line finishing except that much of its Energy has been turned in recent years to dealing with health and safety hazards and with pollution problems. A your creative people have been diverted to regulatory tasks rallies than dealing with cur real another Factor which is going to Force the Industry to new techniques is a growing shortage of raw materials Turbyfill said. A Bow can you expect to continue growing at to per cent to 15 per Mem a year when you Are running out of materials a he asked. As an example of the shortage of materials Turbyfill said that Cartons and cardboard used in packing and shipping furniture. And hardware items for a piece of furniture Are in scarce Supply. At the other scale perhaps furniture manufacturers Are moving to upgrade their marketing and sales techniques. The first result of this concern will get under Way 3t the University of Virginia in december. The Sema and the graduate school of business administration at the University have joined to spun son an Institute for furniture marketing management. The Institute is designed for executives a from the top in the management of a company. A too Many companies have a what we Hope to accomplish is a greater degree of knowledge and sophistication within the Industry in dealing with sales and marketing problems a said William l. Hairston chairman of the sales and marketing division of the Sema. The Shotgun approach toward he said. A they fire away and Hope to score after it in one Hairston who is vice president and director of corporate merchandising f o r Stanley furniture co. In Stanleytown va., pointed out that there Are a variety of different markets for furniture. A there Are the apartment dwellers your single people the Young marrieds the Young family groups. Each of these Market groups have their own special needs and styles of living and what Sells Well among one group wont sell at All among another. A so each Market needs to be studied and sold according to its needs and the goals of the Hairston said the program at the University of Virginia is being developed in three phases. The first phase beginning in december offers a series of seminars involving a Case studies of marketing program in the graduate problems in the Industry. Phase 2 Calls for the Delop ment of a furniture marketing school level at the University. This will be followed in phase 3, with a furniture marketing program at the under graduate level. A the result should be a degree of continuity throughout the Industry in dealing with our marketing needs a Hairston said. Another area in which changes Are under Way in the Industry a the development of materials to meet flammability standards set by the Federal government. Such standards have already been applied to mattresses. They Are being developed now for upholstered furniture. A the Industry is already Well along in this Effort a reported Lyons j. Heyman. The president of Fox manufacturing co. In Rome. Ga., Heyman is chairman of the joint Industry flammability committee formed by the Sema and the set production on 3 a Steve lain lain named top Carrier for month Middle age time to live a bit recklessly i got into a discussion one Day last week about what Middle age is and there were some dissenting opinions. I contend that for a woman Middle age begins around Ace 38. Since the average life expectancy for women now is around 76 this math did not go Over too big with those in tile conversation even though 29. Any Way you look at it is halt of 76. The question is i guess is the Middle of your life considered Middle age for some reason unknown even to me i set a urn Dale age for men seme what higher like maybe 42 begins Middle age for them for men like Strom Thurmond i set the age even higher. You know.69, two children one Only Days old a Wile 25.he�?Ts got to be considered Middle aged. J the reason i think that most people especially women hate the Label Middle aged is the connotation Given to the word in Peoples minds and on television. Television commercials invariably stress the fact that anyone Over 3,5 is a Over the think about it. Bow old is the Guy who inspired that now worn out phrase the whole thing Quot Middle aged. Bow about the detergent commercial that makes y o u choose Between a babysitters Hinds and a 38 year old mothers the idea is that if it were not for this amazing detergent. The 38-Yearold s hands would in practically withered away. Thirty five if you believe television is when you Start to need natures spelled backwards. Its when you Start to need special creams plenty of geritol special vitamins a medicinally induced sleep. You can go to Hawaii Only if you Wear your 18-hour Girdle your husband will think you re wonderful and decide to keep you Only if you cram Down a one a Day Vitamin each and every Day. Middle aged men in Many of the commercials really get the raw end of the Deal. Middle age in most of them is syn Ono Mous with balding paunch iness and Cocker Spaniel eyes. The truth about Middle age is that to most people its something that a happening to other people. Few women like to be described As Middle aged even though they Are because of the connotations associated with the word. Men Are also conscious and sensitive to the mental picture around the word evokes but perhaps less so than women. I like to think of myself As a just nearing Middle age. Ten years from now i expect to lie still just nearing it. It really does t look that had to me though. Middle age should actually be the Oasis of life the pleasant wonderful refreshing place you reach Between the problems of being Young and the problems of restful Ness of being old. It should he a time when you can throw off the restraints you imposed on yourself when you were younger and do a few of the things you be wanted to do. Its really a debatable question in our modern society where Middle age begins anti ends. Do we have a Middle aged president or is he old if ii is Middle age does senior citizenry begin at 120? Are there not Middle aged Young people and Youthful p a s t -1 h dirty fivers some people were seemingly born old while others retain their Youthful vigor for always. Is life not always Joyless for some and forever joyous for others i suppose you could say that a Middle age is a state of mind and you re As Young As you feel and All that but someday somewhere we re All Gonna have to admit we be reached that Milestone Middle age. You can to pretend its not there and make it go away hut the least everybody can do is to refuse to let the commercials and tile soothsayers paint Middle age in such uncomplimentary terms switch to one a week vitamins. Wash dishes in Octagon soap laced with Lye and get it All Over your hands if you want to. Eat Midnight suppers at Midnight. Take a Jet to Europe. Live Sci recklessly.
