Veteto to Retire
After 44 Yean
In Dry Goods
W. E. (Elbert) Veteto, whose
wrinkle-free face looks like a
man of about 40, but who is old
enough to draw a social security
pension, which is 65, will retire
from the dry goods business
about January 10, 1959, he casu-
ally told The Times man this
week. He has been in the busi-
ness 44 years
Veteto first thought he wanted
to be a pharmacist, after work-
ing for the late E. O. Thompson,
Deport druggist, in 1912-13, and
had one year in a pharmaceutical
college, after graduating from
high school at Deport.
Nobles-Read Dry Goods Co.,
under the managemen tof the late
J. H' Read, offered him a job in
the store in 1914. He gave up the
idea of being a druggist, quit
school and went to work for that
firm in 1914.
Two years later in 1916, the
Standard Dry Goods Co. was or-
ganized. Veteto became a stock-
holder and entered the firm un-
der the management of the late
Miss Nita Grant, as head of the
men’s department of that store.
He remained there until 1933
when he entered business for
himself; first at Deport and later
He sold out in 1939 and travel-
ed, selling dry goods at wholesale
until 1952. During the past five
years he has been manager of
the men’s department and buyer
for Belks at Paris, but he con-
tinued to make Deport his home.
Veteto married Miss Exa Lang-
ford of Hubbard, on December
30, 1915, and they have one son.
Elbert Jr., who distinguished
himself as a flier in World War
II, and who is now in the per-
sonnel department of
