u\lfi\ W\% JANUARY, 1939" PICKS UP ALL THE DIRT VOLUME 2, NO. "1 NEWS AND VIEWS The scene at UCA is a continuously changing one with the addition of new products, new employees, new physical facilities, new 'fringe' benefits, new hair styles, etc. One of the most important changes took place December 5, during final sessions of the 22nd Annual Meeting, when the Board of Directors of UCA elected W. Wallace Holman, Delta, President. Mr. Holman succeeds E. R. Behling in the presidency. Ray Seely, Mt. Pleasant, was re-elected vice-president. W, B, Robins was renamed secretary and general manager, and John Carr was retained as treasurer. New. members named to the Board of Directors were Clayton Peterson, replacing Hillary Larson, both of Ephraim; Owen Barton, Ferron, replacing LaVar Black, Huntington; and Owen Home, replacing E. R, Behling, Kaysville, Many employees were on hand at the meeting and got a chance to observe co-op democracy at work. IBM TAKES OVER The first people to admit that IBM has taken over UCA's bookeeping department are the people who have been "squeezed out" into other offices. The acquisition of several new and large IBM machines has created quite a difference in the arrangement of the employees who used to work in the bookkeeping office. Keith Caldwell has moved acrose the hall. Thora Curtis and Lois Eads occupy Office No. 2, Jeane Brown and JoAnn Corona spend their time trying to find a vacant desk, ad infinitum. And all the time the smug, contented and aggressive IBM machines sit in their stable positions and wonder what all the confusion is about - and don't doubt that they can wonder. IBM now handles all of UCA's billings, accounts receivable, sales analysis, acounts payable and inventory. Next year they want to enter the bowling league. Ted Pierce is shown operating one of the new IBM machines in UCA's bookkeeping dept. Or is the machine running Ted? HEALTH INSURANCE CHANGED Keith Caldwell, office manager, reported a change in the major group medical insurance in a Memorandum to employees Dec, 23. An employee committee unanimously decided to change insurance companies and accept a new policy with American Casualty Co. Premiums under the new policy are $Iu50 for single persons and $13.7h for two or more. "The new policy is quite similar to the previous one," Mr. Caldwell said. He said the major differences were* 1. Maximum limit of payment is $7,500. rather than $10,000. 2. Pregnancy: $200. maximum. 3. Hospital and surgical same except no $25.00 deductible. U. Other charges are generally the same with $25.00 deductible per disability. There are limitations on mental disorders, new born babies and congenital defects. The new policy went into effect Dec. 15. Any charges incurred prior to that date will be paid by the previous insurance group. Mr. Caldwell urged that all employees strive to keep medical bills at a minimum, thus making it possible to retain the same policy next year with the same company and at the same rates.
