Negotiations were consummated this week under the terms of which Thomas A. Oliver of Jenkintown, Pa,, will operate a full fashioned hosiery mill in Aberdeen. A contract has been signed whereby the citizens of the Town of Aberdeen will erect a mod em factory building, including a sprinkler system, air-conditioned and oil burning heating system. The building will be approximately 60x115 feet of brick and steel con struction. The site agreed upon will be that of the present baseball park, adjacent to the Taylor Chemical Plant, and fronting on the highway from Aberdeen to Pinehurst. At a meeting of the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce held on Mon. day night a sum of $8,000 was sub. scribed toward the erection of the building for the new plant, and since then an additional $3,000 has been pledged. It is understood the build, ing, to cost in the neighborhood of $16,000, will be sold to the new com pany on a ten-year payment plan, one-tenth to be paid off each year, with interest at six percent on the unpaid balances. The building is ex pected to be ready before July 1st Machinery From Germany Mr. liver will install as a first unit eight new Combi Full Fashioned Hosiery machines which will be .shipped from Germany. Each ma chine woiehs nearly twenty tons and costs approximately $12,509.00 each. Mr. Oliver says these machines, perfected by Dr. Robert Reiner of the Reiner Machine Company of Weehawken, N. J., are the latest and most modern full fashioned hos iery machines in the world, and are capable of making the entire hose in one operation in contract to the customary machines of the logger and footer type. Mr. Oliver is an experienced hos iery manufacturer, having been in the full fashioned hosiery business in the city of Philadelphia for many years, specializing in high grade silk hosiery under the brand of “Su per-Silk,” which trademark he owns and which, it is understood will be the name under which he will op erate here. Mr. Oliver will install as a first factory on a basis of three eight- hour shifts per day, giving preference to local labor, and says that he will pay the customary wages pre vailing among other full fashioned hosiery mills operating in this part of the state. He, however, plans bringing with him to Aberdeen sev eral families experienced in hosiery mills and their operation. It is esti mated that this first unit of the mill will employ approximately 80 people. Mr. Oliver plans to arrive in Aber deen within the next teh days to personally supervise the erection of the building. He will not move his family here, however, until the first of June, his children being in school in Philadelphia. Credit should be given James"^r. Anderson, Industrial Agent for the State of North Carolina, Warren T. White, Industrial Agent for the Sea board Air Line Railway and A. h.
