Too commemorate and celebrate this Silver Anniversary, Loews commissioned' a piece of artentitled "Homage to Lorillard" by Paul Giovanopoulos irr,which the artist interprets NEWPORT, KENT, and TRUE packages as if they had'been painted by greavarti'sts in history. The originai painting is now displayed in the entry foyer of Lorillard's headquarters in New York.

From Your Editor~ To be cafled "Aunt" is a privilege; to act like an Aunt is ani obligation; to neglect a child who is reaching out is a sin; to love a child is an expression of your heart. Andi so it' was with Mel issa, a beautiful Iittle 11-year old from Shalllotte, NC. We first met ata Valentine dinner at First Baptist Church in Shallotte, a year ago this month. My husband, Ralph, and I attend church there when we are atlt'he Coast. And wh i le Melissa's mother teaches and her father ushers andlattends to his other duties, Mel issa sl ips to the back of'the church to sit with me: On our last visit during the Christmas holidays, we had our flirst opportunity toispend some time together. We did'the things thatall women love to do; we shopped until we were ready to drop and ate unti I we were ready to pop. After charming Melissa's father into letting her spend the nightt with us, we got into a serious game of Scrabble. Melissa wonL Wheni Ralph and I were rearing ourdaughters, wedidh'tha~ve the strength, the time; nor thee resources to befriend a child. May the children of the world forgive us for this. When I was Melissa's age, I wondered - where were the adults to help us in our development? Surely they, too, stood inithis place before us and!asked, "Where are they?" They are busy; they are occu- pied; they are forgetting to supply the guidance they so desperately sougfit' in their youth. They have forgotten the loneliness felt byy them when they looked about, to findl someone who need not be askedlto help. Where are those who so quickly point to the faults of our youthl but offer no help for their future? Where are those people who are ready to condemn and so slow to contribute? When asked!tolhelp a youth group; our first thought is - how much do they want'- not, the thought that justi maybe they want' us. Melissaiis aigifted child who is. blessed with wonderful parents. She just needed a friend and Ilfeel blessed thati she has chosen me.

By Tom Moring Greensboro Qual ity fwYanaKement This month marks the second' anniversary of the initiation,of LoriVlard's Total Quality journey. Consultantsfrom13M conducted the first MTQ training and plan- ning sessions fbr Lorillard's executive management in February 1992. During the two years following this initial training, a lot has been accomplished; but as we beginiour third year in the MTQ process for continuous improve- ment, the work is only just beginning. The next 12-18 months are going to be critical for the ultimate success of Totall Quality within Lorillard. Once the initial training and fanfare have taken place, the real work to keep the momentum moving begins. It seems appropriate to briefly review some of the more signifi- cant accomplishments to date. We started'with a single Corporate Quality SteeringTeam to direct the MTQ process through- out Lorillard. As we begin our third year, there are currently sixteen (116) steeringteams looking for improvementopportunities at all levels ofl the Company. The ideas of all, LorillardiempJoyees are welcomed' by these steering teams. Fourteen (14) salaried and eighteen (18) hourJy employees have been trained as MTQ facilita- tors: As facilitators, these Lorillard employees have workediextremely hardi ini conducting 1 1101MTQ trainingsessions for over 2,500 of theirfellow employees. This train- ing will continue in Field Sales during 1994. An Annual Quality Improvement Plan has been established'which includes a listof quantifiable goals (Evidence of Success), ai vision statementi for Lorillard, a qualitypolicy, and documentation for the on-goingquality improvement! projects. Todateoverfifty(50) MTQprojectshavebeen~ initiated! The results of these projects include the following examples: •A program to recognize Lorillard employees for their community and company contri- butions. •An improved vendor rating system and new supplier certifica- tion procedures. •Ani independent survey of Lorillard's key jobbers, whole- salers, and grocery chains, regarding the performance of Lorillard and our competition. •A solid waste reduction programiwhich has already re- sulted in the recycling of 90 tons of woodenipallets; 3 tons ofl office waste paper recycled each month, and a plan to recycle approxi~ mately 2.5 million pounds of filter tow materiall each year. • New procedures for the storage,andl inventory of equip- ment stored int'hebasementat Greensboro. •A system whiich improves the accountability forLorililardfs tobacco between the time it is purchased and the time it is processed in Danville: •Informationali blackboards installed on production lines to improve communications among manufacturing personnel. •Ani improvedi systemiforthestorage, mixing, andldistribution of packaging adhesives. There are many quality im- provement project ideas yet to be addressed by project teams. In addition as we begin our third year, each employee, supervisor, and manager musrcontinue to work on the continuous improve- ment of the human elements of Total Quality such as teamwork; communication~ trust, and em, powerment. page 6
