Miss Somers' Anniversary
THE firm having achieved an anniversary,
its twenty-fifth, a few years ago,
we find anniversaries of individual members
in the organization occurring with increasing
frequency. And so, on May 10,
the busy Financial Department of the
Executive Offices forgot for awhile there
were such perplexing things in the world
as trial balances and assumed an air of
The occasion was the twentieth anniversary
of Miss Emma Somers' connection
with the organization. For a moment her
usual poise and dignity deserted her, but
she quickly recovered her composure as she
smilingly received the congratulations and
good wishes showered upon her by friends
and associates, amidst a profusion of beautiful
flowers which covered her desk.
A period of two decades spent in struggling
with and mastering tiny figures in
huge ledgers has left Miss Somers with a
cheerful, unruffled disposition, ready always
to render help where needed. Her
supervision has been one of fairness and
justice to all coming under her direction.
Virtues such as punctuality and regular
attendance have been both her duty and
her pride. To the question, "What are
among Miss Somers' most striking characteristics?"
the answer unhesitatingly is:
"Conscientiousness, faithfulness, loyal devotion
to the firm she has served so long."
Mingled with our congratulations and
good wishes is the hope that the future
holds for Miss Somers years of continued
efficient service, marked with the same
keen interest and enthusiasm which she has
always shown in her work.
