Ellis Hall says that the men who ground the stones used to work in 12-hour shifts, around the clock. At the boardinghouse, the Whetstone Inn, the beds never got cold, because as soon as one man crawled out of bed to go to work, another returned and slept in the same bed. Mr; Hall's mother used to do cooking at the Whetstone Inn. She also used to roast turkeys for the Pike family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. While "blue collar workers" lived at the Whet- stone Inn, "while collar" secretaries, salesmen, and such lived in the company building known as the chalet. Marguerite Eichorn's father, Emil Blank, was credit manager for the Pike Com- pany. Her brother Eric, when he was a little boy, used to visit the factory, carrying his little hammer and pretending that he was one of the big men making whetstones. He was such a cute little fellow that pictures of him were used in Company advertising, standing next to a huge whetstone with his little hammer. Marguerite's husband, William, while a little boy in Germany, happened to meet Bertram Pike who was there on a business trip. Bill later went to business school in Germany and becme in- terested in the Pike Company through its advertising.

English sparrow, End of an era 4152 of this In the old days, the Pike Manufacturing Company pany needed more stone- cutters and hired a gang of Turks. None of them had had a chance to learn English, so they had to have an in- terpreter. Mrs. Morse remembered hearing them singing their Turkish songs. Near the quarries was a building where men cut up the blocks of stone. The men in the cutting shed were always playing tricks on each other. One of the stonecutters was extremely afraid of snakes, so one day the men hid a dead snake under his overalls where he had laid them on the workbench. The poor man practically collapsed when he saw it. Another time they hung a pail of water over the door, but instead of the intended victim getting doused, it was one of the head men, a Mr. Burbeck. After the stone was cut into whetstone shapes, it was taken down to another shop in the village to the grinding room. The company hired girls to wrap the finished whetstones in paper and pack them in boxes. Myrtle said that when she was a girl she wanted to work there but her father wouldn't let her. But she did manager to get her own way -- once. Her father, Dan Dunkley, was working with the section crew on the railroad, and one time Myrtle walked up to where her father was working on the tracks. She begged him to let her ride back home with him on the handcar -- the oldtime work crew vehicle that ran along the tracks propelled by men pumping the two handles up and down. Myrtie's father said she could ride back to the depot with them this once, but never again, because it was too dangerous. Sometimes a train would come along and they would have to get off the track in a hurry. One time her father pretty • near got killed on a handcar. A train was coming and they tried to take a sidetrack, but the switch wasn't set right, so when the handcar hit it the men were thrown off and the handcar rolled right over Myrtie's father. They put him into the baggage car of the :train and took him right to , Cottage Hospital, which in 'these days was next to the tracks, so the train stopped right there and the train crew carried him into the hospital.

English sparrow, End of an era 4152 of this In the old days, the Pike Manufacturing Company pany needed more stone- cutters and hired a gang of Turks. None of them had had a chance to learn English, so they had to have an in- terpreter. Mrs. Morse remembered hearing them singing their Turkish songs. Near the quarries was a building where men cut up the blocks of stone. The men in the cutting shed were always playing tricks on each other. One of the stonecutters was extremely afraid of snakes, so one day the men hid a dead snake under his overalls where he had laid them on the workbench. The poor man practically collapsed when he saw it. Another time they hung a pail of water over the door, but instead of the intended victim getting doused, it was one of the head men, a Mr. Burbeck. After the stone was cut into whetstone shapes, it was taken down to another shop in the village to the grinding room. The company hired girls to wrap the finished whetstones in paper and pack them in boxes. Myrtle said that when she was a girl she wanted to work there but her father wouldn't let her. But she did manager to get her own way -- once. Her father, Dan Dunkley, was working with the section crew on the railroad, and one time Myrtle walked up to where her father was working on the tracks. She begged him to let her ride back home with him on the handcar -- the oldtime work crew vehicle that ran along the tracks propelled by men pumping the two handles up and down. Myrtie's father said she could ride back to the depot with them this once, but never again, because it was too dangerous. Sometimes a train would come along and they would have to get off the track in a hurry. One time her father pretty • near got killed on a handcar. A train was coming and they tried to take a sidetrack, but the switch wasn't set right, so when the handcar hit it the men were thrown off and the handcar rolled right over Myrtie's father. They put him into the baggage car of the :train and took him right to , Cottage Hospital, which in 'these days was next to the tracks, so the train stopped right there and the train crew carried him into the hospital.
