Transcript tive years end by supplementing the old age insurance benefits of the Social Security Act. The plan is also expected to work to the advantage of the corporation and its shareholders by further strengthening personnel relations and employee morale, increasing efficiency and reducing labor turnover. Employees of the parent corporation only were eligible for benefits under the pension plan at the end of 1951. Studies are being made to determine the costs and feasibility of extending the plan to include the employees of the Waldorf-Astoria, Mayflower and Roosevelt not presently covered. In order to receive any pension upon termination at or after the age of 65, an employee must have completed at least 10 years service preceding retirement. The maximum pension payable is the difference between the employee's monthly old age pension under the Social Security Act and one half of his average monthly earnings during his service in the 10 years preceding retirement. In determining the amount of benefits, each employee is credited with \lA per cent of his average monthly earnings for each year of continuous service. Provision is made for optional retirement of employees with at least 20 years service who have attained the age of 55; also for those with 15 years of service, regardless of age, who become totally and permanently disabled. The corporation pays the entire cost of the plan through voluntary annual contributions. Business Promotion In an effort to secure a full share of the hotel patron's business, our advertising and business promotion activities were conducted in 1951 on both a national and local scale. Advertisements publicizing the names and locations of all Hilton Hotels were placed at regular intervals in leading national magazines. Dining and entertainment facilities were called to the attention of the public through local newspaper advertisements and direct mail. A method of accepting and confirming reservations at any one hotel for any other hotel in the Hilton Group is in effect and is proving increasingly successful in stimulating over-all business. Solicitation of convention and group business is being carried on systematically and effectively. The Shareholder as a Guest It is hoped that all shareholders of Hilton Hotels Corporation will patronize our hotels when their travels take them to the cities in which we have properties, and that they will suggest to their friends that they, too, make use of our fine facilities. If you do not already have one, you may find it a convenience to avail yourself of one of our credit cards, which entitles the holder to the usual credit privileges such as charging his hotel bills and cashing checks for moderate sums. In addition to the convenience provided by such a card, it yields an accurate record of expenses for tax purposes. You are invited to write us for a copy of the form on which application can be made for such a card. If you have friends to whom such a service would be useful, we would be happy to receive their names and to invite them to apply for credit cards. There are at present approximately 250,000 such card-holders. By their participation in this business building program, our shareholders have an opportunity to join the staff and management of Hilton Hotels Corporation in their efforts to make 1952 a good business year. Conrad N. Hilton, President Hilton Hotels Corporation March 3, 1952 HILTON HOTEL, Lubbock, Texas Lubbock h< it is ias a golden incentive to prosper and build the geographical and economic center of the Plains Area.
