FROSTBIJRG- KEYSER And Tri-State Area News (14) Evening Times, Tuesday, February 26, 1952 UNCLE VINCENT HAMRICK Octogenarian Shuns Barbers Until Republican Victory CHARLESTON, W. Va.—(£>)—"It's the first time I've seen Jesus," the little boy said to his companion as they gazed solemnly upon the face of. Uncle Vincent Hamrick of Clay the last time he came to Charleston, the night that Senator Taft spoke at Municipal Auditorium. Uncle Vincent remembers the incident well. He was standing on Summers Street when the two boys came along and the "least one" stopped and made the remark that the old man chuckled over and has cherished ever since. "If there's been any reward for letting my hair grow these last eight years," he explained, "the innocent remark made by. that little boy in Charleston is it. Bless him, anyway." 83 Years Old Uncle Vincent, who celebrated a birthday with George Washington last Friday, his 83rd, admits he's the central figure of a community joke in Clay. Women snicker, men hee-haw, and children, stare In open - mouthed wonder, but that doesn't bother him one bit. "No, sir," says the old gentleman, "I'll be danged If I'm going to have my hair cut- until a Republican moves into the White House. That should be this fall, son." He first made the remark eight years ago, In 1944 when President Roosevelt defeated Dewey. He was talking over the election when a jubilant Democrat, standing nearby, twitted him about his long hair. "You're danged right it's getting long," replied Uncle Vincent, a bit milled with all Democrats, "and It's not going to be cut until the administration changes, either." Was Lumberman Few thought the veteran lumberman would stick by his statement, but he hasn't allowed one of his long locks to be touched since then. "It'e grown so long in the past eight years, in fact, that he now holds it In place with gaily-colored combs. "I can't do a thing with It, otherwise," he says with a wink. Uncle Vincent doesn't believe in any of the New Deal shenanigans, not even Social Security, which he might be eligible to collect if he ever stopped working. "Stop working and retire on the government?" the old man *ays. "Not on your life. This country didn't grow great that way. Long as I can «tir, boy, I'll make my own way." He does, too. Uncle Vincent thinks nothing of jumping in his truck and driving to North Carolina to pick up a load of lumber for his yard on Route 4. He's always been in the lumber business, except for a few years when he peddled eye glasses Temple Interior Being Remodeled FROSTBURG — The interior of the Masonic Temple is being remodeled by Mountain Lodge 99, A.
