Along With Spending Money Cashion Earns Credits By ELIZABETH STEWART Staff Writer Summertime finds many area students employed by local in- dustry to earn cash for back-to- school clothes or tuition. At least one enterprising Kings Mountain student, Billy Cashion, is earning money and receiving six hours of college credit while working as a tool draftsman at Homelite, a Division of Textron, Inc., in Gastonia. Billy, son of Joyce and Bill Cashion, took advantage of an internship program offered by Appalachian State University, where he will be a Junior majoring in industrial arts. The program, according to Billy, recognizes that learning doesn’t have to take place in the typical classroom - lecturer situation and that students need to make career plans early in their four years of study, not during that final term before graduation. Students work in internships usually during their junior years, while there's plenty of time for the student to change his course of study if he find he's studying in the wrong field. Jim Proctor, senior management engineer and Billy's supervisor at the large Gastonia chain saw manufac- turing plant, said Billy applied for a job as a draftsman, was accepted and then got approval of his internship by enrolling in the summer program offered by ASU. Dr. Carl Moeller, Billy's professorat ASU, has visited Mr. Proctor twice since Billy reported to work June 18 for progress reports. Mr. Proctor, a 12-year veteran at Homelite, gives Billy good marks for his summer work and Executive John Lawing echoed his praise of the internship program, which is Homelite’'s first experience, noting that “it’s been good for industry and good for<BilL" Billy's work day at the plant ended on Friday but before he reports to Boone for the fall term of school he will be expected to complete a term paper on his summer experience, relating his views of internship objectives, skill development, relating of school training to the industrial society, learning manufacturing processes, understanding communications of industry and experiencing problems and developing solution techniques. Bill has recorded his experiences in a diary. Billy's ‘‘boss” and ‘‘teacher’’ Proctor explained that Billy stareted at the newest drawings of newer tools and worked toward the oldest in a highly complicated job, explaining that among his 80 tooling detail drawings weere those for one complex piece of machinery which cost one million dollars. Draftsmen make drawings of various tools used in ‘machinery to remove metals from the parts itself and these must be of certain dimensions and break down less complex assemblies into individual complete details. Young Cashion, 20, who studied drafting at Kings Mountain High School, expects to pursue a career as a draft- sman and had high praise for his instructors and for the people with whom he has worked during the past nine weeks. Billy started work in the company’s Tooling Design Department with 10-12 other draftsmen but soon moved to the Engineering Department with Mr. Proctor. He has designed two parts himself and described one of his tasks as lining up parts, Boring Bars and Heads, for such complex machinery as a transfer or seven-station machine where each part does a separate job like an assembly line operation. Billy's first work experience was at J. B. Falls Exxon Station where he learned how to pump gas and service automobiles during the summer months. He has also helped out at the family business, Falls Superette, alongside his mother, Joyce Falls Cashion, and his grand- mother, Mrs. Craig Falls. The modest, young man brings a high caliber of skill to tool . His employers say he has performed exceptionally well, working from sketches, notes, and special verbal in- structions | to prepare design layouts, for example: com- ponents of new equipment or modifications to existing equipment. Billy has studied off-campus in industry and loved it. He recommends the internship program to other young people as a rewarding summer oc- cupation. JVC’S Super Portable RADIO-TV.
