Board of Trustees I 33 a R 49 3 Railroad woman (Continued from Page 1) thing concrete yet," she said. When she started with the railroad almost 20 years ago she worked in a converted wooden boxcar with a cook stove and pot-bellied water heater. She had to haul her own wood to fuel the stove and heater. "It's a lot easier now than it has ever been," she laughed. .. In v those days she fed 13 men at a meal. "I had to seat eight of them at the big table in the dining area and the rest had to eat at a card table in the kitchen area," she said. "But then the number dropped to eight and finally to four." The "camp car" has "all the comforts of home" including showers, bedrooms, kitchen and dining facilities. The men are out all year with this particular crew working in north central Iowa and some in southern Minnesota. The crews had the winters off years ago, but now the men, and their cook, work eight- hour days and 40-hour weeks. "I got started years ago when another cook was ill for eight months and I filled in," Mrs. Ahartz said. She explained she was "the first cook who ever got bumped out of her job." She was working on her husband's crew when another crew was disbanded. The other woman took over Mrs. Ahartz's job due to the seniority system. "She later quit and I took over and I've been working with my husband ever since," she said. She started with the railroad almost 20 years ago for a couple of reasons. Mrs. Ahartz raised her children without a husband most of the time "because George was gone six to eight weeks at a time." Her daughter DeAnn was a high school senior in their hometown of Revillo, S.D., when the opening came and Mrs. Ahartz took the job. Her daughter, the youngest of three children spent the year with grandmother while her mother went to work. "My first reason was to be with my husband and during the first few years to get DeAnn through college," she said. Mrs. Ahartz is a proud mother and grandmother. Her son, John, 36, is with Boeing in. Seattle, Wash., while son Kenneth, 34, is a career man with the military stationed at Offut AFB, Omaha. DeAnn, now married, is a high school English instructor in Aneta, N.D. She has seven grandchildren, five girls and two boys "which is why I'm as old as I am," the 58-year-old cook said. The Ahartzs maintain a home in Revillo, S.D., and live there "during weekends and vacations." Ahartz gets five weeks vacation per year while his wife only gets three due to the difference in working years. "I lose two weeks a year when he takes his vacation because I take off and go with him," she laughed. Cooking for the four men isn't a hard job for the veteran meal-maker. "I do a good deal of baking," she said. "If all the men are staying here all the time I have breakfast, lunch and dinner ready for them." Currently, the crew is working in the area of the homes of three of the young men. Jerry Dirks lives in Thornton, Denny Craig at Mason City and Cleon Engel has a home in Nora Springs. But, when all are living in the camp car, she has a working-man's breakfast ready at 7 a.m., packs a big sack lunch for noon and has dinner ready shortly after their 4:30 p.m. return. "The meals are like eating at home, rather than a restaurant," she said. "They can waste a lot of time going to a restaurant for lunch and they only take one-half hour." She indicated during the Daylight Savings Time the workers start their morning's laboring by flashlight. Railroading is nothing unfamiliar to Mrs. Ahartz. Her father was a section foreman, and her brothers were also railroad people. She said she likes the travel. The crew was in Mason City before moving to Humboldt in late January. They will move on to near Waseca, Minn., after they leave here. Mrs. Ahartz is also a fan of the Humboldt-Dakota City community. She has a number of friends she can have coffee, visit, go to shows with and she can otherwise join in the social life. "I like it here very much," ' she said. "I've made.a lot of friends here. It is a friendly community and it has very, very good stores." The last time the crew was here they stayed over a year leaving last June. But, after all her years cooking for the railroad, she doesn't claim any fancy titles or accolades. "I don't know what I call myself," she shrugged. "I guess, just plain cook."—Linehan.
