Transcript OTJTIR. EIVLF'L.O e: At their April meeting, the Board of Directors elected Vernon Herndon and Robert F. Quain as vice presidents of the Corporation. Mr. Herndon began his career with the Company twenty-five years ago. He was made resident manager of the Palmer House in 1947, and was appointed general manager in 1949. Mr. Quain was assistant to the managing director of the Roosevelt at the time of that hotel's acquisition. Subsequently, he became assistant general manager of The Conrad Hilton, and in 1948 was appointed general manager. In October of 1956, Robert J. Caverly was elected vice president of Hilton Hotels Corporation. Mr. Caverly has been very capably associated with the Hilton organization since 1947, first in an executive capacity with the Hilton International company, and since 1954 as administrative assistant to Joseph P. Binns, vice president in charge of the Corporation's eastern division. To the men and women of the Hilton organization goes much of the credit for the personal touch which sets the tone for all Hilton Hotels. Throughout 1956, the Hilton employee family extended its long history of loyal, diligent service. Mutually satisfactory local wage agreements were reached with employees throughout the hotel system during the year. Hotel service is measured by our guests at the personal level. The service rendered by Hilton employees is a source of justified pride to the Corporation. In the operation of its Hotels, your Corporation has found it sound policy to supplement liberal wage payments with other employee benefits. The Corporation has made available group insurance plans, under which the Company pays the entire cost of life insurance, disability, and hospital, surgical, medical, and polio benefits. In addition, the Corporation pays approximately half the cost of supplementary life insurance for those employees who qualify. Hilton also provides a pension plan for retired employees. Contributions totaling $962,900 were made to this plan in 1956 by the Corporation and its subsidiaries. The plan is designed to provide a measure of financial security for employees upon their retirement. As part of a program to provide opportunities for deserving students, including employees, to further their education in hotel management, Hilton Hotels sponsors scholarships at such institutions as Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration. During 1956, Hilton Hotels International established the first scholarship in Cornell's history for assistance to foreign students. In addition to furthering opportunities for scholastic training of employees and other deserving students, Hilton Hotels sponsors specific academic courses for those of its men and women who are interested in advancing their careers. Courses in public speaking, for example, are supported by the Corporation with the purpose of enabling employees to handle themselves more skillfully in meeting people. Another service for employees is the publication monthly of "Hiltonitems," a magazine intended to keep employees abreast of employee and Corporate affairs. "Hiltonitems" has been warmly received by the men and women of the organization, and has provided the Company with a valuable tool for two-way communication. 18
