24 Golesburg Register-Mail, Golesburg,111. Wednesday, Aug. 7, 1963 Office Feuds Venomous as Real Affairs By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-The average business office today is pictured as a place full of team spirit, where everybody selflessly labors for the good of the corporation. The truth is, however, that beneath the serene surface lurk feuds every bit as venomous as (he one that split the Hatfields and the McCoys. The reason there are so few murders in the office is that it is difficult for the employes to stab each other to death with the only weapons readily available — paper clips. What lies behind these wordless antagonisms? If you check your own office, you might find the following feuds typical: The second vice president is miffed at the first vice president because the first vice president has one more window in his office than the second vice president has in his. In 1942, the sales manager borrowed $1.50 in lunch money from the assistant treasurer and forgot to pay it back. The assistant treasurer hasn't spoken to him since. In 1938 the personnel director asked pretty young Miss Maria O'Callahan to stay late to type a couple of letters when she was trying to hurry to meet her date. The date didn't wait for her, and Miss O'Callahan now thinks, 25 years afterward, that it is the personnel director's fault she became an old maid. Mrs. Adele Rankle, secretary to the boss, glares frigidly every time Ronald Adenoid, the stock room clerk, thumps a package of copy paper on her desk. She remembers that, back in 1954, Ronald, then a brash new office boy, told her to go fly a kite when she asked him to please clean out her pencil sharpener.

He always Gerald Pincher, the tightwad bachelor playboy, because he tries for a free pinch—never takes them out to dinner. Elmer Eager, the eagle-eyed efficiency expert, pads constant ly about the desks in tight-lipped quest like a mute ferret. He is sure each employe is getting away with something he shouldn't—and Elmer is furious because he can't find out what it is. Everybody turns a cold shoulder to Harry Smiley, the cheerful executive trainee. He is the only one who can tell jokes that make the boss laugh, and the rest of the staff are sure Harry is trying to grin his way to the top. Abner Craggy, the office grouch, hasn't spoken to anyone since 1939, the year he got his last merit raise, and all he said then was, "Well, it could have been more." Tender'. Juicy!
