MACHINE ROOM CONTINUED
other night in a joking way of course. Not know
ing his definition of "Fanatic”, McKelvin asked
Clifford and the reply was "A man who can’t
change his opinion and won’t change the subject”.
I guess all of us have something sometime to
boast about but Vallencourt started out the other
night in full glory telling us he is the only person
in the machine room that became an American
citizen with his clothes on. Guess he had his
glasses on also.
Glen always has something to say but one thing
about it, he can’t describe a beautiful girl without
using his hands.
Ralph Teague, the new owner of the former
farm of Ballard, is quite disappointed. He has left
the barn door open for the past twelve months and
hasn’t a deer passed through yet. Ballard, we can’t
blame you for taking the game with you. After
all you have your rights.
No one on this shift killed a deer yet, but they
are trying. Bert Neal and Charles Tinsley tried
very hard, but one thing we will never under
stand and that is why Bert put nails in all four
of Charles’ tires. One way to slow him down!
Huh, Bert? Charles Tinsley is going back over to
"Standing Indian”. Perhaps he will get close
enough to "Sitting Bull” this time, or is it deer
you are after?
It never got out on Mr. Brewer, but when he
was on his vacation this past summer in Texas he
received a wire from someone at Ecusta—"Hope
you are enjoying your vacation; we are!” Couldn’t
have been anyone in the machine room, John.
McCrary is trying to climb that same ladder
with Bob Pierce. He is buying half interest in a
beauty shop in Hendersonville. Wouldn’t Clif
ford make a cute hair stylist? He has such smooth
delicate little hands.
Poteet’s youngest son came in the other day say
ing that he was going to a formal dance. Being
interested in his sons appearance, he was quite up
set by not knowing where to get the boy a "tux”.
Finally the boy said, "Pop, don’t worry so, the
meaning of formal now is wearing a neck tie.”

Vacations for this month on "C” shift are: John
Collins, who reports he had a quiet vacation at
home although he made a trip to Greenville S. C..
Gerald Allison reports that he had too much
work at home gathering his bumper crop of corn.
Gerald had two weeks off.
Clyde Shuford reports a nice vacation around
home. Well! Glad to hear so. Clyde said that
this was the first time he had missed "Graveyard”
shift in about seven years. I’ll bet he hid the
Sorry to hear that Walter Wood is in the hos
pital for an operation, but understand that he is
getting along very well.
"D ” SHIFT

Willie Nelson is the proud father of a 9 lb. 12
02. baby boy. He says he regrets that he wasn’t
old enough to vote in this last election. He said
his weight would have gone a long way in electing,
Tom Stroup has been out on vacation. They

"Peewee” Bell killed a deer on his five days
off. He said "she” had two spikes.
If you are sick and run down, see Dr. Clyde
Seay. Luther King and Coy Fisher say he has-
the pills that will fix you up.
Footsie Case is trying to find a "seeing-eye dog”
to take care of his blind pet hen.
Don Haney has for sale a noiseless alarm clock
that cannot be heard when the alarm goes off.
If interested see Haney soon because he may re
gain his strength and will be able to wind and
set the alarm before he goes to sleep.
Cecil Passmore has a very tired shot gun he
would like to sell. It won’t quite reach the target
if aimed at target over five minutes. He will
consider trading for a good sling shot.
Clarence Pressley wants to sell his hunting li
cense. Although used, he says it is as good as
new because he didn’t get his limit on any thing
he hunted this fall. Better watch this because he
is just trying to get even on a bet he lost on his
Harry Crane is looking for a good compass to
take along on the next hunting trip. He would
even consider a good seeing eye dog if he could
train him to tree coons.
Some of the boys we know of in the Pulp Mill
who killed a deer in the organized hunt in Pisgah
National Forest are: Mack Hamlin, Clifford Sitton
and Harry Crane. There were a lot of near misses
reported but they don’t count when you sit down
at the table and have to eat bologna and spam.
We’re glad to have Hardy Kilpatrick and James
Phillips back to work with us. They have been
out several weeks. Hardy has been ill and Jim
had an operation on his hand. Neither one is
pretty but it is good to see them around again.
