Vol.2 No.29 July 24, 1968 Grace Potts, Editor
It has been the proud boast that this newspaper has never missed publication
since its inception. We can no longer make this statement. During your
editor's one-week vacation last week, there was an unexplained work
stoppage, which will be thoroughly investigated!
For the record, Mrs. Knorr became a grandmother for the second time
Wednesday morning, July 10. Susan Elizabeth presented herself six weeks
prematurely and is accurately described as a 'little girl' since she weighed
in at only 4 pounds.
The Sales Department has a new addition in the person of John McDonald, who
joined us Monday, July 15. Welcome to the group, John.
Trying to find new ways to surprise our KeeNeR folk on their birthdays is
becoming more of a challenge but when the services of Mr. Patterson were
enlisted, Paul Cannon was overwhelmingly surprised on his day, Friday, July
12. There's nothing like a command from the front office to make them come
running - right into a sea of faces shouting the usual greeting!
Mr. Patterson, however, blew the preparations for his surprise party on the
18th by arriving on the scene while the cake was in process of being
Doug Christie received the birthday 'treatment' on the 16th when he was
called in off the road on another pretext. Paul Cannon supplied the music.
Jack Davidson's weekend plans were abruptly brought to a halt when his wife
started running a fever in the 100's which later developed into bronchial
pneumonia. To add to the discomfort, she also got the flu! After visits to
the doctor and penicillin shots, she's coming along fine.
There are three KeeNeRites who are vacationing at some distance this week -
a card from Mary Desentz indicates she's having fun in Miami, Florida, and
Russ Betz sent in a card from Utah. Harry Walker has been spending time in
northern Michigan with possible plans extending to Minneapolis.
On Monday and Tuesday, July 22 and 23, Paul Cannon made appearances at the
Detroit Public Schools radio station WDTR for a summer radio workshop
comprised of selected students from various schools.
Not to be outdone in the engagement news by Susie Goldsmith (who announced
her engagement last week and did get her ring over the weekend), John Small
makes a similar announcement this week. His bride-to-be is Mary Jo Couchman
of Detroit. A May wedding is planned. Congratulations.
Did you know that Pat Kelly is a ham radio operator and is also interested
in astronomy? Well, now you do.
Carole Wiedeman and family are leaving this weekend for a vacation in
California where they will be visiting her son Jim at Edwards Air Force
Mr. Patterson and Don Wagner were among the invited guests attending the
ceremony Tuesday, July 30, honoring Mr. Henry Ford with a commemorative
postage stamp. Dignitaries included Representative John Dingell, Mayor
Orville Hubbard, Postmaster General W. Marvin Watson and Henry Ford II.
A PARAPHRASE OF THE 23rd PSALM (which some people believe)
The Government is my shepherd, I shall not work:
It maketh me to lie down on good jobs:
It leadeth 'me beside the still factories. It destroyeth my initiative:
It leadeth me in the paths of the parasite for Politics sake:
Yea, though I walk in the Valley of Deficit Spending,
I will fear no evil,
For the Government is with me:
Its doles and its vote-getters, they comfort me,
It prepareth an Economic Utopia for me by appropriating
the earnings of my grandchildren, It filleth my head with boloney,
My efficiency runneth over:
Surely the Government shall care for me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in a Fool's Paradise forever.
