Man in Franks and the Uood Work He
Tho Charleston Host has this lo say
of a Laurens boy, the son of Cap\ W.
H. Franks, who is aClemson graduate:
"Engineer 11. Marvin Franks of the
postollicc building, was busy today re
covering a number of tables with felt,
finding t'.me for this special work
i.mong his other duties at the Federal
building. Mr. Franks is never idle as
a result of having tho faculty of per
forming almost any artisan service and
frequent rails result which take him
from the engine room to the ollico
about tho big building.
Or.o of ti.o latest employments for
his time and talent is in the recovering
of a number of tables with felt and his
work of this kind today sustains tho
reputation that ho has in the building
for making a good job out of anything
to which h^ turns his hands."
