MUNCIE, INDIANA Don Everhart . . . Once again this is Owens-Illinois in Muncie, Indiana. Work in the shop is about; the same as the last time I reported; some overtime in the shop, mostly on the lathes and mills. The rest of the shop is on a scheduled weekend coverage. The rest of the plant is doing pretty well and expected to do better in the future.

The Mold Shop had its annual Christmas party with a good attendance, and consequently we had a good time. The wives enjoyed their tour through the plant, and also the film "Birth of a Mold." All in the shop took part in this film.

I'm happy to report this shop had two visitors from the Owens plant in Portland, Oregon, George Williams and James Wallen. Both men are looking well and feeling fine. They, too, feel that the Owens Company is a fine company to work for. Jim's address is 1915 N. W. Sixth Drive, Geesham, Oregon. I didn't get George's address but I will have it in next month's news letter.

George and Bertha. Williams received a severe blow on the day they returned to Muncie the passing away of Bertha's dad. Our sympathy goes to the family. Also this month my sympathy goes out to the family of Fred Hayes, who passed away at Danielson, Connecticut at the age of 55. He was a mold maker for Knox Glass Company. I worked with Fred a few years ago and he was a fine man and religious to the core.

I'm sorry that this month's news letter is so short but the holidays brought the deadline too soon.

I finally got Jennings G. Johnson's address, and it is 7626 Bonnewood Lane, Pleasanton, California. I'm sure all of the above men would enjoy a card from their old friends.

That's all for now buy American.
