Transcript FOOD $5,000,744 MAJOR PURCHASES IN 1950 BY CLASSIFICATION MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT (orchestras, talent, etc.) $1,244,167 OPERATING EQUIPMENT (linen, china, glass, silverware and uniforms) $747,241 FURNITURE AND FIXTURES $998,052 BEVERAGES $1,454,944 $9,445,148 that time. In spite of this, few new hotels are needed in the United States and these only in rapidly growing sections. The corporation will continue to maintain in the future the conservative attitude that it has been following with respect to propositions submitted for the construction or operation of new hotels. At the present time new hotel construction is prohibited by the government because of the need for conserving materials for defense purposes. Frequent investigations are made of existing hotel properties offered by their owners for sale to Hilton Hotels, but these investigations rarely result in acquisitions. It is our policy to purchase properties only when opportunities for profitable operation can be clearly demonstrated. Personnel The Board of Directors was increased to ten members during the year by the addition of Charles Deere Wiman and James Norris, both of Chicago. Mr. Wiman is president of Deere & Company, and is a director of a number of other large companies including the Continental Illinois National Bank REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE (Including repairs and maintenance payroll) _$2,354/400 2,081,633 2,803,350 _ 2,149,335 and Trust Company of Chicago and the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. Mr. Norris is president of the Norris Grain Company, director of the First National Bank of Chicago, director of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad and has numerous other business interests. The annual Managers' meeting was held during December in New York, attended by departmental heads and executives of all the Hilton Hotels. These meetings, by providing opportunities for discussion of operating methods and controls, and the exchange of information between operating personnel, have proven to be of great value in increasing the efficiency of our management. Relations between the hotels and their personnel continue to be harmonious. There were 6,708 employees as of December 31, 1950. This total did not include employees of the Waldorf-Astoria, Mayflower, Roosevelt, Caribe Hilton or Jefferson, numbering 5,589. Advertising and Business Promotion Our national advertising campaign has been continued, advertisements appearing regularly in Time, Newsweek, United News and World Report, Business Week and the leading hotel publications with the purpose of acquainting the public with the names and locations of each of the hotels operated by your corporation. fAII figures shown for the year 1946 on graphs cover the full calendar year and include seven months figures of the corporation and five months figures of the consolidating companies and their predecessors. 11
