"HANK" HEXDRICKSON puts his janitorial supplies away for the last time as he begins a long-awaited life of retirement. Hendrickson retired from the East Alton Post Office after over 20 years service today.—Staff Photo. Hank Hendrickson Post Off ice Custodian Will Retire Tonight At E. Alton Read Telegraph Want Ads Daily By HARRY THIEL of Wood River Bureau EAST ALTON. — James O. "Hank" Hendrickson, 67, janitor cum laude of the East Alton post office, will put his brooms, mops and other janitorial equipment away for the last time this evening when he begins a life of retirement. Hank, who lives at 818 E. Ferguson Ave., in Wood River, completed 20 years at the post office on Jan. 10. While there, he worked for a short time as a carrier and re-assumed duties as janitor after being stricken by failing eyeside in 1944. His retirement will be honored at a later date with a party given by other postal employes, at which the verbose "Old Man" of the local office will be presented a gift of appreciation for his services. Hank is a native of Kane, first coming to Wood River in 1915, where he secured employment with the Standard Oil Co. He worked there 10 years as a fireman and a still helper. He also worked for five years as an operator of a filling station located at Wood River and Acton avenues. Even though he first accepted a position as "charman" at the post office, Hank was pressed into service as a carrier in 1943 due to a shortage of personnel during World War II. In 1944, his eyesight became so bad that a specially-designed pair of glasses had to be worn for him to see at all. Finally the defective sight became so acute, an operation was performed on WoodRiverMrs. Jaycees Join Husbands in Halloween Fete WOOD RIVER — Wood River Township Jaycees and Mrs. Jaycees were treated to one of the most entertaining and funfilled parlies of the current season, Monday evening at the Roundhouse. Bill and John Mellot gave an impersonation of two little lasses singing "You Belong to Me". Their costumes were complete, from pinatores to bobby socks. Jean Mellot's portrayal of "Hannah" with her French costume topped off with a French beret was another highlight. Leroy Emerick held the inter-! est of his watchers with his pre- j sentation of "hambone specialty". .. A parody on the television "This-is your life" show, was 1 centered about the life of George Nauyok, with Joe Allovio as • master of cf-rcmonies introducing i the varius people who influenced I the- life and charcter of the honoree.

A popular figure among the carriers and clerks at the local office. Hank prides himself on his opinionated answers to political and baseball question*. Of this year's political picture he says, "Put your money on Stevenson, boys—Ike won't get six votes in Oregon." (Oregon happens to be the scene of pleasant memories as a youth and the place where he hopes to settle now that his working days are over). First a Chicago Cubs fan, then a rooter for the White Sox and the now defunct St. Louis Browns, in that order, Hank says, "I like any team but the Cardinals." It his dream to return to the Oregon apple country is not fulfilled, Hank's next ambition will be to take life easy and maybe open up another filling station in this area. He still takes pride in the record that "no station pumped more gas than mine at Wood River and Acton." j He was married in 1915 to '. the former Hazel Hayes of Carrollton. The Hendricksons are the parents of four children and grandparents of nine. Mrs. Hendrickson works in the dietary kitchen at Wood River Township Hospital.' The children are Mrs. Jack Lu.x and James of Wood River, and Mrs. Gilpin Biermann and Mrs. Clinton Root of East Alton. His son-in-law, Clinton Root, works as a mail carrier at the local post office. An only brother, Frank, also lives in Wood River. MORO.—Mr. and Mrs. E. S. i Oulson of 24S Eighth St., Wood !
