When I'm in the Home tab and I select New Slide, Title and Content or some other type of slide, I am NOT getting the footer on the right side.  Just the company logo on the left footer.  How come?

You need 2 things for the slide number to appear:

1. the placeholder (which you have)
2. to populate the placeholder (which you have not)

To populate the placeholder, go to Insert | Header and Footer (might be View | Header and Footer in PPT 2010) and then tick the box for slide number and Apply to All.

Hi Echo:
But if you look at the slide master, the place holder with the slide number is already there.
Look at the footer in this file (earlier version).  There is footer information and yet when I create a new Slide, no footer appears!

Right, because the page numbers haven't been populated. Basically, you have the placeholder with a <#> field on the master and layouts to tell PPT where to put the page number once you turn them on. You turn them on in the Header/Footer dialog. Once they're turned on (Insert or View menu/tab, then Header-Footer. Check Slide Number and Apply to All), then the page number should appear when you insert a new slide.

I also found it helpful to format the page number to black so I can readily see it while testing.
