It’s time for your weekly Pacific newspaper update. I’ve now made it into December 1947. Overall, it was a bit of a slow 6 month period for news on Pacific but there were a few highlights.
Pacific workers got another raise – along with thousands of workers throughout the Southeast – as a result of union organizing. A nice puff piece was printed about the curriculum and extracurriculars at Olympia High School that includes a picture of students silkscreening.
Richland Mill was once again profiled for their safety streak. Each of the workers were given a bonus, had their photograph taken (in groups) for the newspaper, and had their names printed. There’s certainly some potential value in this piece!
