THE LATE MR. E. W. FINDLAY

A movement has been originated by the workers in Ardeer Factory to erect a memorial to the memory of Mr. E. W. Findlay, late assistant manager.

A Large committee has been appointed and Messrs R. T. Reid, 25 New Street, and A. W. Bone, Shore Road, Stevenston, are joint-secretaries, and Mr. John McGilchrist, Lucknow Cottage, treasurer.

The movement is likely to be largely supported beyond the bounds of the factory.
