Perhaps some of this lumber went to nephew Willie May for his General Tire boxes? Mr. Saalfield, when asked about this, said he never heard oi it. He admitted that his plant had recently received Uro new contracts from the Government for mobile machine shops. Meanwhile Willie May has .continued to thrive. Not only did he buy the Judge E. C.' O'Rear farm Cor a reputed $G5'.000 (not bad for a boy who got 5-1,000 a year at the start oC the warV but ho was able to afford a S2.IJOO campaign contribution to John Young: Brown, Democratic candidate to the Senate, Furthermore, he is bringing new executives; into his firm and paying them lush salaries. The latter fact leaked out in an interest- in;.; manner. Joseph W.

While pressing the suit he went to work for the "».'illiam H. May company, and during the trial he was asked how much he was paid by the May company. ".$750 a month," Schneider replied. Judge William B. A I'd cry, flabbergasted, Icanrtd over and asked him to repeat his answer. Schneider- did :;o.
