BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, June 9, 1934. Confidential

File 292 General J. C. PERSONS:

I regret exceedingly that the statement showing the cost of the three National Guard camps, which I sent to you with my confidential memorandum of June 6th, is grossly in error.

This statement has now been completely revised by our Accounting Department and a copy of this revised statement is handed you herewith with the request that you substitute it for the one originally sent to you, returning to me the first statement. Please note the very material reduction in the figure covering furniture and bedding for Camp No. 3, to which you called my attention as it was reported in the original statement.

JULY 10, 1934. General J. C. PERSONS,

Birmingham, Alabama. MY DEAR GENERAL PERSONs: During the several weeks when your troops were on duty at various points in this District I had full opportunity to observe their conduct, with the result that I express to you, the Commanding Officer, my sincere congratulations on their efficient, impartial and soldierly behavior throughout the entire period of their service here.

It was not an easy task which they were called upon to perform, yet the fact remains that not one single instance of concerted violence occurred. Such can be attributed only to the fine type of leadership represented by you and your officers.

I cannot let this opportunity pass without expressing my thanks and appreciation to the National Guard for their accomplishments under such trying circumstances.

Yours very truly,

President.

APRIL 12, 1926. To Heads of All Departments:

Please be advised that we will pursue the same policy this year as we did last year in regard to the remuneration made by the Tennessee Company to such of its employees becoming members of the National Guard of Alabama for services rendered during periods of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama. This procedure is outlined below for your convenience:

The Tennessee Company continued to appreciate the value of our citizen soldiery both as an influence for law and order in time of peace and as a main national dependence in time of war, and will continue to give encouragement to employes only of the Company of military age (18 to 45 years) who desire to continue to connect themselves actively with the National Guard of Alabama.

The policy of the Company in reference to salaried employes who are members of the National Guard of Alabama, will be as follows:

Such salaried employes as are members of the National Guard of Alabama while absent from their work in the performance of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama, will receive their regular monthly salary less the amount paid to them by the State, excepting in cases where the amount paid to them by the State exceeds their monthly salary, in which event * 1936 is probably intended.

same year.

they will receive from the Company 10% of their regular monthly salary in order to keep their names on the payroll.

Where salaried employes perform military duty in attending the Guard's annual encampment of two weeks duration, they will receive their regular salaries for the two weeks period of encampment but will not be paid their regular salaries on account of absence for a vacation period, to which they might be entitled that

In the case of day workers who are members of the National Guard of Alabama, such day workers as are strictly employes of the Company will be paid $2.50 per day for each regular working day in the department in which they are employed, in every division of the Company, while absent from their work in the performance of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama.

Yours very truly,

Vice President.

MAY 14, 1930. To Heads of All Departments:

Effective at once, and until further notice, we will pursue the policy as outlined below in regard to the remuneration made by the Tennessee Company to such of its employees as are members of the National Guard of Alabama for services rendered during periods of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama:

The Tennessee Company continues to appreciate the value of our citizen soldiery both as an influence for law and order in time of peace and as a main national dependence in time of war, and will continue to give encouragement to employees only of the Company of military age (18 years to 45 years) who desire to continue to connect themselves actively with the National Guard of Alabama.

The policy of the Company in reference to salaried employees who are members of the National Guard of Alabama, will be as follows:

Such salaried employees as are members of the National Guard of Alabama while absent from their work in the performan

ance of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama, will receive their regular monthly salary less the amount paid to them by the State, excepting in cases where the amount paid to them by the State exceeds their monthly salary, in which event they will receive from the Company 10% of their regular monthly salary in order to keep their names on the payroli.

Where salaried employees perform military duty in attending the Guard's Annual Encampment of two weeks duration, they will receive their regular salaries for the two weeks period of the Encampment, but will not be paid their regular salaries on account of absence for a vacation period, to which they might be entitled that same year.

In the case of day workers who are members of the National Guard of Alabama, such day workers as are strictly employees of the Company will be paid $2.50 per day for each regular working day in the Department in which they are employed, in every division of the Company, while absent from their work in the performance of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard of Alabama.

The question has arisen as to whether these men should be paid $2.50 per day if they were not actually engaged in work for the Company. On consideration of the fact that heretofore when these men have performed military duty they were taken from their work, and as a result, notwithstanding the fact that the Company paid them $2.50 per day, they still lost a certain amount, which, in the average, would amount to more than $2.50 per day per man,

Under these circumstances, it is not the intention of the Company to modify this rule now on account of the fact that a man may not be at work, as a result of reduced operations or other temporary lay-offs at the time he is called to perform military duty and they are to be paid at the rate of $2.50 per day, six days per week (not seven) while actually absent from their work in the performance of military duty ordered by competent authorities of the National Guard. The provisions of this letter are to continue in force until further notice. Very truly yours,

H. C. RYDING, President. 89562—38-pt. 15–2
