WINSTON SALEM (Field) - Cont'd.
to go on the line as Co-pilot. Sure hated
to see him go but we oil knew therewould
be no holding him down ( on the ground
that is) R.O. Bullard came over from
GSO to take his place. Welcome to the
station of COMAT and ship changes, R.O.
We are still in the middle of vacations
here with one still to go. Charlie Stoltz
and his wife went out to the far West last
month for a week. Sounded like he had a
fine time but he wasted no time getting
back to rebel territory. Station Manager,
Jack Brandon, just finished his two week
vacation, ifyoucancall it that. Seems he
worked 13 hours a day at the |NT Fair the
first week and painted his house thesecond
week, but now he is back to the peaceful
serenity of the office.
Speaking of Jack, he asked me to announce
that F/O AI Crisler was the winner of the
Marlin rifle given away in the contest(?)
sponsored by Mr. Brandon.
In closing, I would like to say that we
here are looking forward to the annual
PAI Christmas Party, and especially t o
seeing all you folks up and down the line.
The new hangar should provide an ideal
spot for the affair. It's so large we'l I
probably never know who was there.
