ROCKDALE. MILAM COUNTY. TEXAS. THURSDAY. NOVEMBER. 17. 19S5
600 at Work as
Is 40% Complete
Construction of Aluminum Com-
pany of Atnerlcu’s Rockdale Works
expansion is 40 per cent complete
and a peak of about 600 workers
has been reached, Construction
Superintendent R. D. Pulver said
“Although the number of work*
ers on the job for the 14 contrac-
tors now at the plantsitc will
fluctuate somewhat, we now have
as many people on the Job as there
will be at any one time," Pulver
The expansion program, which
will increase aluminum smelting
capacity at Rockdale by SO per
cent, is scheduled for completion
in the second quarter of 1956. The
new facilities will require about
300 additional permanent em-
ployees to operate them. Employ-
ment Manager Allen Mcnke said
that hiring for these Jobs will be-
gin about the first of the year.
All foundations for buildings to
house new equipment are com-
plete and structural steel is rising
fast. Steel for three of the four
new potrooms has already been
erected and the f:/urth one will
go up as structural parts arrive.
Corrugated aluminum siding has
been installed on one of the
buildings and a second is about
23 per cent complete. The com-
pleted building is being used as
a shop to fabricate aluminum bus-
bar which carries the electric cur-
ROUND ROCKDALE '
SO you think you have trouble
® remembering your own phone
number? Consider Clint McAdams
who is an electrician out at The
Rockdale Works. He works in
Rockdale, lives between Davilla
and Lilac, his mailing address is
Thorndale Route 1, and if you
want to phone him you call Bart-
lett. How he ever ftnds his way
home I don't know.
•THIS is probably the worst story
* Preacher Whitcy Campbell ever
told, but I have quoted him on
others so I might as well pass this
one along, too. Concerns the per-
sonnel man for a large corporation,
whoae name was John Down.
Seems ho was having trouble
keeping employees happy and
about a half dozen key personnel
had quit. Calling him on the car-
pet, the president of the firm
told Down he was going to have to
change his methods. ••Everybody’s
quitting," the president complain-
ed; “seems like you just can’t keep
a good man, Down."
School is Top*
T%ID you attend the opening of
Rockdale’s new high school
Monday night? If you didn’t, you
missed a treat. "School was never
like this when 1 was a boy," I
heard one man remark. And an-
other, who is a newcomer to
Rockdale and no longer in school
business but formerly was a school
executive for years, remarked: "I
have been in contact with schools
for a long number of years and
have seen many new school build-
ings. It is my opinion that Rock-
dale got more building for its
money than any place I have ever
Well, that about sums it up. The
now high school building actual-
ly is "out of this world.’’ There*
not too much •gingerbread" but
the building is modern in every
respect, and superbly equipped.
When the new unit and auditorium
are completed, I believe Rockdale
will have the very finest hig i
school rl«nt in Central Texas, ro-
gardl°ss of the si/e of toe city,
and adequate to take care of the
growth expected over ihc coming
That brings us down to the
elementary school and Junior high
where the board is now asking for
a bond issue to complete the
building program needed there.
With the rapid growth in the
g-ades, this program is a must,
if Rockdale is going to take care
of its school children next year
and the next and the next. Right
now it requires five rooms to
house the first grade .and five for
the second grade. But building the
new unit at the new elementary
school, and remodeling the old
high school for junior high use,
Rockdale’s school housing prob-
lems should be well taken care
of for years to come.

A Civil Defense officer from

Wednesday that America must not
be lulled into unpreparedness by
any soft talk from foreign nations.
Speaking was Louie Berry, pub-

rector of the Civil Defense Auth-

He asked Lions to recall thei special number.
