READ TELEGRAPH WANT ADS Rotariam Initiated Into Mysteries of Prefab Holes G. A. Rohlfing, assistant personnel manager of the Aluminum Ore Co., Enst St. Louis, who said he was also founder and president of Prefabricated Holes nnri Kxon- vations, Inc., spoke to the Hotnry Club Monday night on his operations in the latter firm. Holes, he pointed out, play a very Important pnrl in the human life. Government spending being what It is, the average person is born about. $2500 "in thr liolc," never gets out all his life, and finally is buried in one. His definition of n hole, worked out by his sales department, was "An area in which by application of force of disintegration the elements have hern removed irom the constituent elements thereto." Hole, he sairl, could be classified as concrete or abstract—or, in, simpler language, positive and negative. Positive holes, he said, are those created for a purpose, like buttonholes, holes in pipes, well, etc.; negative, those "not created for a purpose with mainly a nuisance value, such as holes in pants pocket and socks. His first venture into the. business was during the war when he \vas down in Arkansas supervising mining of aluminum ore. He got his eye on n lot of holes down there 100 feet deep and a mile in diameter, and had the thought of reprocessing them and putting them on the market. His first request, for service came from a farmer who wanted to get a 300-foot well moved. His men found quickly that as fast. as they dug out the dirt, the hole disintegrated. He hired some engineers. They evolved the Idea of putting refrigeration coils down tin 1 hole, freezing It, Inserting a corkscrew, and pulling up the hole. That job gave him the capital to expand, he said. His firm also branched Into making pigment for transparent paint, shadows, shady spots, and burps. His engineers developed holes to be shot right along with bullets to increase their penetrating depth. They licked one problem. That was developing n liole that, wouldn't stray away from the bullet during flight because of gravity and wind. They got the idea of taking the heavy holes out of lead mines. A posthole the firm developed could outlast four cedar posts. It was guaranteed to remain there when the post was pulled out. To help speed up his wormholf production for antique furniture manufacturers he had the agriculture college cross up termites with woodpeckers, creating a ter- pecker. Before "President" Rohlflr look over to deliver his "deadpan" dissertation, the club (seriously) heard several announcements. /Dne, by Brown, club chairman of arrangements, was on the selection of officers and chairmen tot the May district convention of Rotary, Scheduled here.
