On Tuesday evening, December 23,
members of Shift “D” of the Refining
Department met at the Canteen in
Brevard where a sumptuous meal was
served to them through the courtesy
of their foreman, Mr. Frank Patton,
Ansel Jones was toastmaster and the
Ecusta Quartet composed of the Mid
dleton and Staton Brothers furnished
music for the occasion. At the close
of this bountiful repast, Fred Bishop
presented Mr. Patton with a leather
billfold as a Christmas remembrance
from Refining “D”. The occasion was
highly enjoyed by all present and
Foreman Patton’s shift takes this op
portunity to thank him for a most

Hats off to the Bowling Associa
Thousands of dollars will go into
Defense Bonds through the Elimina
tion Tournaments being held all over
the country. This is being done
through the entry fees that are paid
by individual bowlers that enter these
tournaments. Instead of awarding
cash prizes, Defense Bonds will be
given to the winners—Even in fun
we can be doing a small part.
Refining ‘‘A” ADoings
We wish to express our sincerest
appreciation to Mr. Straus for his
wonderful remembrance for Christ
mas. . . . We had a very enjoyable
Christmas except for the fact that
we lost Harold McNeely to the army
and Homer Raxter had to report back
to Camp Polk before he told us all
about life in the army. We can assure
everyone that with these boys in the
army the war is nearly over ... wo
hope! . . . Enno Camenzind has pur
chased a mountain estate near Tryon
and has tagged it “Ye Alpine Stumps ’.
All he needs now is a wife that can

that he can’t come to work in pajamas
even on Christmas Day. . . . We are
glad to have Johnny Peters and fam
ily back with us. They spent the hoi
idays in New York en masse with nary
an air raid. . . . For the New Year
we do resolve:
1. To do everything we think is
wrong for in this way we may hope
to succeed in doing things right.
2. Not to show our loyalty to Jack
Alexander by betting on Duke in
the next Rose Bowl game.
I wonder if Slim will have to read
his diary to find out if his vacation in
Georgia was a success or not. We all
appreciated the greeting cards from
him. . . . “Knuckle Ball” has New
Years football spirit in the back of
his mind. . . . Abe Lance is still the
best inventor the Bleach Room has.
Bly Rogers claims no kin to Bob
Rogers no matter if both do claim
to be cousins of the “Roy Rogers
Cowboy”. . . . R. Wilber must have
the ole spirit in a big way. I haven’t
seen him frown in two weeks. . . .
Melvin McGaha says, “Let me work
three nights graveyard and I’ll whip

The Ecusta Women’s Duckpin lea
gue resumed play on January 7. Hand
booklet “B” has maintained first place
rating throughout the entire season,
and again rolled up two wins to one
loss against Machine Booklet “B” to
top the lead with 25 wins and 5 losses.
Machine Booklet “A” played Hand
booklet “A” and they too managed to
win two games, which ties them with
Machine Booklet “B” with 18 wins
and 12 losses. The Office still main
tains third place with 17 wins, but is
followed closely by a much improved
Endless Belt team that threatens to
change second and third position rat
ings before the season closes. In
fourth place is Handbooklet “A/’.
Because of a change in work shift
the Finishing Department teams have
found it necessary to reorganize, and
the match which was to have taken
place between those two teams had to
be postponed until two new teams are
organized. We hope that this will be
possible before the next matches,
which are scheduled for January 14
