EMPLOYEES of the H. C. Fry Glass Co. and the Beaver Valley Glass Co., Rochester, Pa., were given a most agreeable and substantial surprise when presented with checks for two weeks wages, cover a period when factories had been idle for the purpose of stocktaking and making repairs. Commenting on the matter, the Beaver "Times" says: "The employees in the factory department of both plants had been idle during a two weeks' shutdown. However, it was not a case with them of 'no work, no pay.' Every employee in the above-named department received a check for two weeks' wages. Those in other departments were given one weeks' wages extra pay in addition to their regular wages. Several of the employees declared: 'It is a real pleasure to work for such people.' About 500 hands are employed in the twin industries."
