E HAVE just completed a record year in sales for the company in 1968, and we are looking forward to another good year in 1969. Profits have not been as good as previous years, due primarily to higher manufacturing costs. Prices will continue to be very competitive in 1969, and business will be harder to obtain. Roughly, one-half of our total sales is in oilfield equipment. Trailers amount to approximately one-fourth of our sales, with the other onefourth consisting of gear units and mill supplies. We consistently have invested approximately one million dollars of our profits in new equipment and manufacturing tools each year, primarily for the machine and structural shop. We will continue to do this to keep our plant the most modern in the business; otherwise, we cannot expect to grow or even stay abreast of competition. This past year your company undertook its largest single expansion • in the investment and building of a new trailer manufacturing facility. This plant, now under construction on 400 acres of land purchased for future expansion on Highway 69, will be the largest trailer manufacturing plant west of the Mississippi River and the most modern in existence. The old trailer facility will be used for further expansion of our machine shop, material control, and other crowded departments. Movement of the float department to the new plant will begin later this month, and final transfer of the van section will take place in June. Administrative personnel should be in their new office by June 1, and van trailers should be coming off the new production line by July 1, 1969. It requires a team of 2000 good people working together to keep this company at its maximum efficiency of production, and each employee performs a certain task in helping to accomplish this goal. We are counting on you to do your part in 1969, and we are confident that you will continue to perform well as always. The management of Lufkin Foundry and Machine Company wishes for you and your family a most happy and prosperous New Year in 1969. R. L. POLA D 2

WIVES were included this year for the first time. At the serving table are. left to right, Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Martinez, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Deal and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Stringer.

Welding Shop RETIREES HONORED S. U N, Taylor Martin and Curtis Stephens, all 1968 retirees of the Welding and Stru ctural Shop, were honored with a barbeque dinn e r Dec. 7 at the School Audi, torium in Burke. Approximately 125 emp l oyees attended, including their wives and the retirees from previous years. This was the first yea r that wives were invited, and many of them remarked that they enjoyed themselves and hoped to be invited again next year. Master of Ceremonies W. F. Crager introduced the Hodges Group, who entertained with guitar music and songs. Morris Wayn e Hodges and Jim Hod ges, both Lufkin Foundry employees, are members of the band. Cheryl Crager, six-year-old dau ghter of the emcee, entertained the crowd by singing " How Great Thou Art." Food Chairman P. P. "B u c k " Strin ger provided plenty of barbeque beef, potato salad, beans, cokes and coffee. Members of the com mitt ee who raised funds and planned the party were James Oates, W. F. Crager, Buck Stringer, David Thompson, lckey Baird, J ames Carlile, Cecil Oates and Thedis Allen.

Shop Talk E'VE HEARD of ki ll in g two birds with one stone bu t never with one bullet. Apparently it's possible thou gh, because JoHN A. McCARTY, Welding and Structural shop, returned from a deer hunt with two wild turkeys he had gotten with one shot. It seems that a fragment of the bullet hit a second turkey in the head. His four co-workers in the shop can verify the story if anyone is in doubt. However, they may be more interested in talking about the four deer they bagged. By the way, the deer kill ed by WAYNE HODGES fell in exactly the same spot near the same tree as last year's deer. Wayne took a lot of kiddin g when he tied his deer to that tree so it wouldn't get away before he field dressed it. We understand he had more faith in this year's deer. The other hunt e r s were DARWI ' MODISETTE, W. Z. HUTSO and GRADY GRIMES.

We are glad to hear that TIM ANDERSON is back to work after his twomonth stay at Veteran's Hospital in Houston. Tim is employed in the Foundry department, second shift. Congratu l ations to Mr. and Mrs. WILLIAM CURL upon the birth of their daughter, Julie Lee. She weighed 7 pounds 21/ 2 ounces when she arrived. Her sister is Vida Fay, age four, and her father is employed in the Machine Shop.

We are sorry to hear that ] AMES ELLIOTT has been sick with the mumps. He works in the Machine Shop, first shift.

There's a new baby in the home of R. E. ASHWORTH. Congratulations to the new papa who works in Welding and Stru ctural, second shift.

Deepest sympathy is ex t e nd e d to BILL FoRD, Trailer Engineering, upon the death of his father.

Sympathy is ex t e nd e d to ]AMES STEED, Foundry department, first shift, whose father-in-law died.

BUD LOVETT is back at work in the Jig department following his five-day stay in the hospital.

Congratulations to newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. GARY MAY who were married Dec. 6. Gary works in the Trailer di vision, first shift.

Greetings to ]AMES and SHAILA CARLILE, who have been recuperating in the hospital and at home from their serious car accident in late November. James works in Welding and Structural and Shaila is employed in the Mill Supplies division .

ToM SHOEMAKER was missed by his co-workers in the Float departm ent while he underwent surgery on his leg. We extend sy mpath y to CALVIN HUGG, Trai l er divi s ion , first shift, whose mother died recently. The fellows in the Machine Shop certainly were surprised to see HARDY FREDREGILL back at work three days before his week of vacation was over. It seems that Hardy was going to hunt during his week off, but he spent his vacation in the ]P's office instead. Hardy, who belongs to a huntin g club, was stepping over a fence to retrieve a deer he had just shot. Suddenly, a man with a gun pointed at Hardy appeared and announced that he was making a citizen's arrest. Then Hardy noticed the sign which said, " 0 TRESPASS! G." With his 30.06 still in possession of the court, Hardy figures that there's no sense in his taking a vacation if he can' t go hunting.

CLOWNING in front of their seven deer are, left to right. John Laird. Roy Davis. James Weeks and James Stuckey.

ing trip in West Texas with a little happier ending to their story than the result of Hardy's trip. Among them, they got seven deer during their twoday hunt near Mason. The hunters were JoH LAIRD, RoY DAVIS , J AMES WEEKS and J AMES STUCKEY. Sympathy is extended to STANLEY and ADA BECK upon the death in their family. Mrs. A. A. Beck, Stanley's mother, died Dec. 5 after a brief illness. Stanley works in the Industrial Engineering d e partm ent, and Ada, is a Trailer division employee. Congratulations to TOMMY PARKER and J ANICE LIESE, Lufkin High School seniors who were recently tapped for membership in National Honor Society. Both have maintained an average of at least 90 throughout high school. Their fathers are R ED PARKER, Material Control, and CARL LIESE, Trailer division. Mrs. Harold Weeks and FREDDIE B. FowLER were among five Lufkinites who won free telephone calls to servicemen relatives stationed overseas. Mrs. Weeks, whose husband works in the Gas Engine department, called their son, Sp / 4 Morris Weeks, who is stationed in Vietnam. Freddie called his son, Cpl. Ralph Fowler, who is with the Marines in Japan. Freddie works in the Trailer division, first shift. The program was sponsored by the Angelina County chapter of the Red Cross and the local Armed Forces recruiters. The calls were paid for by Lufkin Foundry and Machine Company, KTRE-TV and radio, Southland



"I DON'T think it's a n yone's b usiness if I w a nt to le a ve m y motor running while I w ork."

Paper Mills, Lufkin T el ep hon e Exchange and _Southland Fence Company. Way back in O c tob er- when the goblins were on their annual rampage - several Lufkin Foundry employees, who are members of local civic organizations, were selling Halloween candy. DAVID COLLIER, Inspection department, won an award for his efforts . He was named the leading trick-or-treat candy sa l esma n by members of the Lufkin Civitan Club and presented a Civitan pen by President RAY RUSSELL, a Traffic department employee. We congratulate David on winning this award. Sympathy is extended to WILLIAM HIGDON, Machine Shop, first shift, upon the death of his mother.

NORMAN GREEN usually gets pretty good mileage from his car, but one day a few weeks ago it burned a quar· ter of a tank of gas without moving an inch. It seems that Norman, who works in the Machine Shop, drove his car to work one morning and took the keys without turning off the igniti"on. The car was left running for five hours before Norman discovered it! WOODIE WALLACE, Foundry depart· ment, second shift, brought his four· point buck by the Photo Lab in O· vember. He said he shot it at 9 :30 a. m. on ov. 21 using a 30-30 rifle. The buck was about 50 steps away from Woodie, who was hunting near the Moffet community.

0. E. MORRIS was missed by his coworkers in the Machine Shop while he recuperated in the hospital from a fall. CLETUS RussELL and JACK BROOKS are co-grandfathers of the baby girl born to Mr. and Mrs. LESLIE BROOKS. The new father works in the Engineering department. Cletus is an employee of the Assembly and Shipping department, and Jack works in the Pipe House. We extend sympathy to CLARENCE MILLIGAN, A ssemb l y and Shipping, second shift, whose father died re· cently. We hope JoHNNY CARROLL, Electrical department, has recuperated satisfactorily by now. On Nov. 11 he received first; second and third degree burns on his hand and spent nine days in the hospital.

WOODIE WALLACE: poses w ith his fourpoint buck.

MUTT BARR presents Pete Largent w ith a deer rifle on behalf of the Machine Shop e mployees. Pete retire d at the end of the year.

}AMES E. "PETE" MOORE, retired Lathe Shop employee, is the subj ect of a cartoon found on these pages. He and his wife and two grandchildren were downtown shopping on e rainy afternoon when Mrs. Moore, who was driving, decided to go to a drive-in window to pay a bill. With the rain blinding her vision, she ran smack into a car when she drove back into the street. When P ete saw the policeman strolling up to the car, he decided he wanted no part of this. He scrambled to the back seat and found a safe hiding place under the laundry! Sympathy is extended to ROBERT BREVEL, Foundry d e partm e nt , first shift, and JOH NNY LONG, P e r so nnel Director, whose aunt was killed in a car wreck.

Already he has made two hunting trips to West Texas. Pete gave 39 years of loyal service to Lufkin Foundry. We wish him many healthy, happy years of retirement. DEE RUSSELL was missed by his fellow work e rs in the Ass e mbly and Shipping department while he underwent surgery. Our congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. JOHN H. JONES who were marri e d Dec. 20 in the bride's home. She is the former Catherine icholeson of Chester, Texas, and John is a Trailer division employee. HENRY FREDREGILL has returned to work since his ea r surger y in Longview. H e is employed in the Foundry department, first shift. We extend sympa thetic word s to D.

We are sorry to hea r that the wife of R. D. McCLENDON, Pattern Shop, has been in the hospital.

0. MCGAUGHEY, Foundry department,

PETE LARGENT retired at the end of the year, but the boys in the Machine Shop celebrated early by giving him a deer hunting rifle so he could get some hunting in before the season closed:

ERNEST LORD, P a ttern Shop, and his son, James, caught 196 white perch on Lake Sam Rayburn in D ece mb er. That's quite a few considering they used only six dozen shiners as bait.

RAYFORD DAVIS recently became a new uncle when his nephew, J effrey Lee, was born. Little J eff's parents are O'Neal and Carolyn Davis. Rayford is employed in the Assembly and Shipping d e partm e nt , first shift. We hope AHTHUR FISHER, Foundry department, first shift, has recuperated fully from his operation. Sympathy is extended to LEVI PATTON, Foundry department, second shift, upon the recent death in his family. KAREN BATE joined her husband in Ala s ka on Oct. 22, 1968. Second Lieutenant Jerry M.

We hear that ca ttle rustlin g is not altogether a thing of th e pa s t and it causes us to wonder if there might be a law against "worm rustling." It seems that SLIM ASKINS , Lathe Shop, who specializes in worm raising (some of which are too lar ge for the fish, we are told) solved a mystery that has confounded him for several seasons. He has been wondering where his worms stray durin g the s ummer months. He found that the critters had escaped and taken up residence in the yard of his n eighbor, who just happens to be Linda P erry, daughter of GHENT SMELLEY, Machine Shop foreman, first shift. Knowing Ghent to be a man of integrity, it was diffi c ult for Slim to imagine him enticing and schooling his grandson in the art of worm rustling at such a tender age. Slim said he could very well understand Ghent's sons, EDDIE or RICHARD, doing such a thing,



but not Ghent. We hear that Slim has relu ctantly given in to the persistence of WI NFOHD SCHULLER, Machine Shop, by selling the latter some of his choice breeding stock at $10 per dozen. It looks like Winford will be giving Slim some keen competition next spring. CHARLIE Doucuss, Plant Office, is somewha t disgruntled about the whole thin g, s in ce h e has been on Slim's waiting list for sometime. Slim asked Charlie to be patient, hoping that he doesn't get any ideas from Ghent. ROBERT McBRIDE, Engineerin g de· partment, captured the incident in a ca rtoon found on these pages. JIMMIE C. WATSO retired from the Traffic department on Nov. 24, 1968. He was employed at Lufkin Foundry on Jan. 22, 1951. We wish Jimmie many happ y, healthy years of retirement. Greetings to MAURICE KINDLE who has been missed while he recuperates from an extended illness. He is employed in the Trailer di v i s ion , fi rst shift. We are glad to see ZACK FENLEY back on the job following his heart attack in July. Zack is foreman of the Pipe House. We ex t e nd sy mpath y to J. D. WHITAKER, Welding and Structural, first shift, upon the recent death in his family. The 10- year -old son of BOBBIE CHERlW, Main Office, shot his first deer on Nov. 24, while hunting with his father, R. L. Cherry.

ADMIRING the Perfect Record Certificate pres ented to Lufkin Foundry by the National Safety Coun cil are, left to right, John Long, Carrel Watts and Chip Ballenger.
