Industrial recruitment, 1943: We speak English only

“Nie Dym… Nessuno Fumo… Nem Szabad Pibalni…Me Tzukhek… No Fumen…No Smoking…

“One language is enough in North Carolina….

“Which is simply another way of saying that workers in North Carolina are 99% native-born, loyal Americans…. willing, efficient and cooperative. The supply is ample to take care of new industry moving to North Carolina.”

— From a 1943 magazine ad placed by the Commerce and Industry Division, Department of Conservation and Development
