Quiet- spoken, Ken has since he joined our organization, impressed us win his efficient handling of automotive work. Ken has gathered his mechanical "know- how" on just two jobs, but he has been taking engines apart and making them hum since he was 16. In fact, he says "I've just about spent all my life on cars." He was employed at the Chevrolet garage in Britt for 3 years, handling all phases of garage and repair work. He moved from there to Wesley Auto Co. in Wesley, and has come to Ernie Williams Ponliac-Cadillac from there. His garage work was broken by a year of active service with the U. S. Marines. One of Ken's specialties is "automatic transmissions." He doesn't know just how he got into this phase, but the new transmissions attracted him. He's an expert in that field, just as he can handle anything from tinkering to overhaul on most any make you can name. Ken is married and has three growing kiddies. Asked about his set-up at Ernie Williams Ponlisc-Cadillac. Ken replied: "I like it here. Ernie is a good boy to work for, and he isn't stingy on equipment to work with. We've got the latest stuff here to work with, in fact, the latest tune-up equipment I've seen. I'm not afraid to tackle anything in this ga- raqe, and Ernie has told me the facts of life —Do it just one way, the right way." ^T^ - -„ i t'V V - / . „ .; •GEORGE REASONER, pictured above with one of many John Deere parts books at his elbow, is another Ernie Williams chap we want you to get acquainted with. George has been at the John Deere Store here tince July 11, and he's already set himself up pretty well with the farmers he's dealt with. George, born in Dows, Iowa, has about as fine a "parts man" record as anyone could hope for. He started with the John Decrc Plow Co. in Des Moines in 1945, and continued with that one firm until 1955 — a matter of ten years of handling parts. When the Des Moines J. D. place discontinued sale of parts at retail to farmers, George decided lo put his parls knowledge to work elsewhere, and that's how he got lined up with / Ernie Williams Implements. He actually sold on the counter at John D?ere -n Des Moines for 8'2 years, dealing with farmers and ihoir problems all that time. He worked out of an $800.000 inventory there, so it's a pretty sure thing he knows rrs way around the bins and the catalogs. He eats, sleeps and thinks implement parts. George is married, has two boys, and can shoot the breeze about fishing with the best of em. You'll find Georqe Reasoner on the parts counter at Ernie Williams John Deere Store — ready lo handle your needs in a friendly way that is very pleasing. 2 Places - Service 'Tops' Both Places The two "boys", pictured and described ab-ve. arc the two most recent »r»^;.-« .
