If your child has several homework a.,'signments on a particular day, he may need a short break. "Just a few min- utes away can often refresh a child's busy mind," Balcs said. Varying assignments can help prevent boredom and re- duce frustration. "If your child has reading assignments in both English and science and practice exer- cises in math, suggest that he do one reading assignment, then the math and then the other reading," Bales said.

The business was as the W.T. Harvey & Company in 1892, new building constructed at Sixth Avenue and Twelfth Street. The company moved in 1894 to Sixth Avenue at Fifteenth Street. After another fire destroyed this facility in 1896, Harvey Lumber rebuilt at its present main-plant site at 800 Fifteenth Street. W.T. Harvey died in 1918, and his son W.H. Harvey, served as president until his death in 1922, when his sister, Stella H. Slaughter, was made president and her husband, John L. Slaughter, became general manager. Slaughter died in 1928, and Wilfred E. Gross took over as general manager. Gross added his outstanding abilities to Harvey Lumber's business management, improving its organiza- tion and achieving a high level of success. In the early 1930s Gross was joined by WJ. Campbell as superinten- dent, strengthening the management team. Under Gross and Campbell, the firm expanded its millwork shop into one of the largest in Georgia. Neatly painted company trucks, fast deliveries, mod- em and complete displays of merchandise and keeping a full stock of materials were some of the main factors responsible for success under the leadership of Gross and Campbell. Gross led the company in maintaining its position as one of the Columbus area's leading lumber and building materials firms until his death in 1963. At this time, his son, Wilfred E. "Bubba" Gross, Jr., became general manager. A graduate of Georgia Tech, he joined Harvey Lumber in 1949, contributing leadership to community and church activities, and serving as president of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce in 1976. Harvey Lumber has continued to achieve growth through innovative business practices. Instead of serving customers out of one central building of its lumberyard. the company established perimeter sheds enabling the staff to serve many customers at once without delay or congestion. Six golf carts were bought and put to work scooting across the yard to improve service.
