[[left margin]]CAMERAS AND PICTURES[[/left margin]]
None but specifically authorized persons may enter or leave any plant with cameras or pictures in their possession. Federal laws are very strict on this point. It is also forbidden to take pictures of any of our plants or equipment without specific authorization.

[[left margin]]PERSONAL MAIL[[/left margin]]
Please do not have your personal mail addressed to you in care of the company. Our mail department is already overburdened by the heavy demands of our business.

[[left margin]]PERSONAL TELEPHONE CALLS[[/left margin]]
Telephone equipment is scarce and our switchboards are very busy. Unnecessary personal calls can seriously interfere with company business. You are, therefore, requested not to make personal phone calls except in cases of emergency. Before leaving your work place in such cases, your foreman or supervisor should be notified and permission for the call should be secured. As to receiving personal calls, you can help greatly by requesting friends and relatives not to call you in care of the company. In an emergency, you can best be reached through the Personnel Department where the message will be taken and delivered to you through your foreman or supervisor.
