"D" SHIFT CASTING
By William Haynie
First of all, the shift wants
to express its appreciation for
the swell turkey dinner the
Company gave on Thanksgiv
ing Day. It was delicious.
Congratulations to Mr. and
Mrs. Jessie Snyder on the ar
rival of an 8 lb. 5 oz. baby
boy, named Ronald Jessie.
We want to take time out here and congratu
late Charles Morgan for capturing a convict who
escaped from a working gang Wednesday, No
vember 19. Nice work, Charles.
Looks like deer season is on its way out, and
from all the talk going on everybody has made a
kill. Why, just the other day someone said they
had seen more deer killed in the Casting area than
in the forest.
Speaking of hunting, Ed Conley and J. T. Reid
spent a couple of days at Standing Indian. Didn’t
have any luck. But they report seeing a few doe.
Rupert Gordon reported that he missed a buck
on opening day.
Don Graves spent three days on the Mississippi
River duck hunting on his five days off. Don, that
duck sure was good. Ha!
Tom Brown sure is enjoying his new television
set. He reports it’s nice to sit around the house
and see what is going on in California,

Congratulations to Mr. and
Mrs. David Garren on the ar
rival of a daughter, Donna
Faye. She arrived November
26, at 9:45 P. M.
Troy Williams has some
advice to give to all rabbit
hunters. It seems that Troy
and his brother-in-law were going rabbit hunt
ing Thanksgiving day. Troy was working grave
yard so Wednesday night before coming in to
work he put his two beagle hounds in the trunk
of his car. This was to make sure he didn’t forget
them the next morning. Troy tells me that Sams
Motor Co. has a rewiring job to do on his car.
It seems that the dogs weren’t satisfied with chew
ing up all the upholstering, but chewed all the
wires loose from his back up lights, tail lights and
stop lights. Troy wants to know if anyone has
a good dog crate for sale. If so, please contact
Deer hunting in the Pisgah Forest was very
good this year. Of the three men from A shift
Coating that went after their deer, two were suc
cessful. Monroe McCall killed a nice spike buck
that dressed out close to one hundred lbs. Yours
truly was the luckiest hunter of them all, checking
at the checking station at 6:40 a. m., and back at
seven fifteen with an eight point buck that weigh
ed one hundred and fifty lbs. Some of the boys
from Coating and Casting have been kidding me
about having the deer tied up the night before
the hunt. David Sams was the only unlucky hunt
er, but David put in three days of hard hunting.
He said the only ones he saw didn’t have horns.
That’s about all the news for this month. See
you next month.
"B" SHIFT COATING
By Henry Bell and Jim-Silver
Another month has rolled around and caught
us short on news again, but here goes anyway.
We hope everyone had a very nice Thanks
Out of this crowd L. V. Neil seems to have had
the best luck of anyone. He went rabbit hunting
and said he never shot so much in his life. He
shot 15 times and killed 15 rabbits. That’s really
some shooting. If anyone wants any rabbit stew,
maybe L. V. will invite you over for a mess.
Henry is back on his feet again! His car is in
dry dock for repairs. It seems he’s taking the lime
light from me on auto repairs. Anyone would
think we were running a race. Trouble is, I think
I’m winning. Mine stays in the garage more than
There will open soon in Brevard another used
car lot run by local boys. The name: B. M. & S.
M. — (Bell, McCrary & Silver, McCrary) used
cars "A Dollar Down and A Dollar when we catch
you” is the slogan. (And we have long legs.)
Lee McCrary had a nice Thanksgiving with his
mother in East Flat Rock.
Jim Dalton carved the turkey at the home of
his father-in-law, Mr. I. E. Blythe and all had a
Marv Reid gobbled the gobbler at his home in
Rosman, N. C.
Preston McCrary chewed the chick at home
with his family at Horse Shoe, N. C.
Henry Bell and family bit the bird with Henry’s
folks out on the Biltmore Estate, and then Henry
hitch-hiked home. He ate so much he couldn’t
D. S. Winchester sliced ole Tom Turkey with
his brother, Glenn, who lives in Greenville, S. C.
Bud Pettit gave thanks at home with his fam
ily and enjoyed a quiet evening watching T.V.
Troy Bryan has been awfully quiet here lately, so
we couldn’t find out just where he ate dinner.
Yours Truly had a "sore” throat and had to
"Sup” soup, but I was thankful I could do even
that and do it in a free country.
