The President discussed his Western trip and the arrangements made with the Joslyn Manufacturing & Supply Co., of Chicago, and the new business thus secured.
The President also reported that the Company was getting some business from the Canadian General Electric Co. and that it looked as though this might develop into a splendid account.
The President reported on his recent visit to Atlanta with reference to the Coca-Cola franchise for bottles, stating that so far he had not been able to secure this franchise and that prospects were not particularly bright toward securing same.
After a thorough and full discussion of the business, it developed that the Board was unanimously of the opinion that it is necessary for the Company to have an additional line to manufacture in conjuncture with the Insulators. On motion of C. M. Guggenheimer, seconded by R. C.
