Looks like the holidays are almost
gone—Gee Whiz! Everyone sure enjoy
ed the Office party Dec. 17-—isn’t that
right Charlie H.???
The exchanging of our gifts on Dec.

There were many shocked and amusing
expressions — especially when Ted
Spaugh received his CALENDAR for
the coming year (Esquire?). Mr. Whit
comb made quite a Santa—Masked but
Another eligible gone?—Rumors are

Our Folks in the Council Show—Won

At Last! Everyone has settled down
and is ready for work after all of the
rushing and exciting moments before
and during the holidays. All report that
Santa Claus was very good to them.
Iva Pendleton is happy because her
daughter, Mary Louise, is home from
school for a few days.
Roy Casteen, our canteen man, says
he’s disappointed because none of the
girls came in wearing diamonds Mon
day morning. Maybe he doesn’t know
that Henrietta Atkins got herself a hus
band and we think that is even nicer
than a diamond. She and Francis Mar
tin were married December 23. We wish
for them much success and happiness.
Ernestine Cox has taken up photog
raphy recently. We are wondering
what she will do next. But after all,
that might not be such a bad idea since
certain people have promised to pay
her if she doesn’t show their picture.
Glennice Jones Cox, one of our for
mer employees, paid us a visit a few
days ago. Seemed like old times seeing
Carolyn Shelton spent the holidays at
her home near Danbury.
Margaret Turman and family have
moved into their home on the Reidsville
road which they recently purchased.
