’A" SHIFT CASTING
By James B. Shook
Most of the fellows on "A”
Shift are spending their spare
time hunting this month. All
reported nice kills. Tom
Cooper has killed one squir
Spurgeon Ashe has only
been on one hunt this season.
But got enough squirrels to last him until next
James Fisher has caught and sold enough coon
skins to buy a new coon dog.
Yours Truly has been lucky enough to get two
squirrels, also two shots at rabbits, but they just
kept on running. Suppose it was just bad shells.
Joe Younghusband is all smiles now that duck
season is open. He has been killing quite a few.
Bob Eason killed a buck in case any of you fel
lows haven’t heard. His deers’ last ride sure was
a long one. It had a ride back and forth through
town for about two days.
If any of you fellows want to go for a ride in
a new 1952 Chevrolet, see Henry McCormick
after the weather gets warm. He will be driving
it around then.
John McCall is feeling lots better now. John was
a very sick boy for quite a while after the election.
Someone asked John what he thought about how
the presidential election turned out. He said, "I
think it’s the worst thing that has happened to us
since Pearl Harbor”.
We all thank the Company very much for the
nice Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving Day.

A most exciting month for
us on "B” Shift has gone by
with all of the hunters look
ing forward to deer season
To sum Hp our kills, we
should congratulate Cecil
Watson for making the finest
kill. He, along with John Tomas, Walter Glaze-
ner (Chemical) and Earnest Clay of Old Hickory,
Tenn. made 3 kills in two days in the Standing
Indian Area. Carl’s deer, weighing 147 lb. and
having 10 points, was the largest. John and Wal
ter, making a kill together, got a 127 lb., 6-point
buck. Mr. Clay bagged a nice 8-point buck,
weighing 105 lbs.
Tommy and Buddie Hooper, along with their
father made two nice kills on the Cantrell Creek
Wilderness Hunt and at Standing Indian. Tom’s
buck, with 6 points, weighed 125 lb. and Bud
die’s, a "Spike” Buck, weighed 86 lbs.
Earl Garren and Jesse Ashe are (along with
myself) riding in the "Unlucky hunt” boat. No
deer meat for us this season, but we sure have
had lots of fun talking about how we missed the
_ Fred McCall has been grouse hunting almost
every day he has been off. I understand he is a
good shot on those old mountain grouse.
Rupert Gorden says he cant see the horns on
those big bucks.
Henry Heatherly has been "car-trading” lately.
He sports a nice ’49 DeSoto.
Jack Wyatt says he had two turkeys for Thanks-
"Dick” Landreth has had "Coon” meat. I un
derstand he is quite a "Coon” hunter.
I think most of the fellows on this shift are
about ready for Christmas. Most of us want a
new gun, dog or a fishing pole.
That’s all the news for this month.
"C" SHIFT CASTING
By Chas. Warren
I am sure most everyone on "C” Shift in Cast
ing had a real nice Thanksgiving. Since we were
working the evening shift, we had dinner at home.
Then after the nice supper we had at the plant,
most of us had a stomach ache from over eating.
But just the same, I think we were all very thank
ful. There are so many things we have to reaHy be
thankful for. I cannot even start to list them. I’ll
just say we are all very "thankful”.
Mr. and Mrs. John Landreth are very happy
that their son, Johnny Danial, is getting along fine
now. He has been very sick, but is coming along
fine now. We all wish him well.
We have all been waiting to get some deer meat,
but looks like we won’t have any. John and How
ard have tried hard, though. They go hunting and
John sings • them a tune and Howard carries the
gun. John’s singing either scared them off, or
killed them in their tracks. Anyway, they didn’t
find any. Better try another song John, "Shot-
Gun-Boogie” doesn’t seem to appeal to them.
Bob Foster wants a spot reducing gadget. He
says he gets all his fat in the same place.
Conley McKinnish wants someone to drive him
around—says he just can’t keep ’er on the bridges.
Howard Galloway wants a Toni Wave.
Haskel Heaton wants a longer belt.
Herb Hall wants a pool room in his home.
Jim Montieth wants a drink from the "Fountain
of Youth”—says there are too many young men
Hershall Galloway wants some vitamin pills.
Some with quick energy.
John Landreth wants a baby sitter, so that he
and his wife can get acquainted again.
