KACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN Sunday, July 4, 1965 8C Use Plenty of Footwork t 2 Milwaukee Waiters on Job for Combined Total of 125 Years MILWAUKEE — (JP)' — Jack Johnson and Evert Staudacher have a habit of waiting on people. They've been doing it for a combined total oT more than 125 years and a half million miles. Jack, who is 85, and Evert, 78, are waiters — in the truest traditions of the profession. They have made a career of using plenty of footwork — about 12 miles per day between them — and just as much patience to fit their philosophy that "dining out should be a joy." Evert, an Ashton, Iowa, native, took up table service in Minneapolis after a stint on a relative's North Dakota farm, and came to Milwaukee in 1907. For the past 14 years, he and jack have been a team at a small, fasl-yonable downtown restaurant. •Tfister" Background They first worked together more than 55 years ago at the Pfister Hotel and Schlitz Palm Garden in Milwaukee, but didn't discover this until the past year. Evert brought a picture of the crew at the Pfister to show to Jack, who promptly pointed to himself among the other waiters. They recall the period for its fine food, entertainment for the whole family and huge steins of beer for a nickel. Both noted the acceleration in dining habits since that time. Jack recalls the days when "eating was almost a ritual, with meals lasting up to two hours." Evert nostalgically recalls the "elegant chafing dish orders" of the past. "Now the most frequent order is steak," he says. Evert and his wife Josephine, 74, have been married for 52 years and have seven children and 13 grandchildren. The family lives in Milwaukee and Evert rides the bus to work each day—"a full eight- hour day, five days a week." Embarrassing Moment He lists among his most beautiful customers a woman he served in what turned out to be his most embarrassing moment as a waiter. Evert was serving lobster and a claw got caught on the back veiling of the lady's hat. "It slipped down the back of her dress," he says. "She was so gracious about it that I remember her as a most beautiful woman." Jack, who was bom in Boston, began his career as a waiter with the Canadian Pacific Railroad. He later worked in Montreal and Lake Louise hotels before going to St. Louis in 1904 to work as a waiter at the St. Louis exposition. He came to Milwaukee in 1910 on a weekend excursion and, while passing the Pfis- Obituary and Funeral Notices BERLIN, NINA Chicago, 111. Passed away July 2, 1965, in Chicago.

That was the beginning of more than a half century in Milwaukee restaurants. Jack lives with his son, daughter - in - law and four grandchildren on La La Belle in Oconomowoc, about 30 miles from Milwaukee, His wife died in 1951 after they had been married for 35 years. He often takes the bus or train to work, sometimes walking the three miles from the bus stop to his home at night. He works a regular shift of 5 to 9 each weekday evening. Loof Birthplace of Pope Pius 10 RIESE SAN PIO X, Italy— iJP) — Burglars raided the house where Pope Pius X was born and made away with gold and silver plaques and jewelry worth one million lire ($1,600), police announced Saturday. The house, now a museum is cared for by two nuns grand nieces of the early 20th Century pope. 23 Saigon Papers to Resume Publishing SAIGON — (m — The government announced Saturday that 23 of 36 Vietnamese language newspapers closed in Saigon three days ago will be allowed to begin printing again. The Viet Nam press, the official news agency, quoted the secretary for psychologi cal warfare as saying the 23 papers had been cleared "of earlier suspected connections with Communists." Saigon newspapers in the past have been extremely critical of the government and have helped fan popular opinion as religious and political organizations moved to topple governments. Hectic Stock Market Was Puzzle of the Week NEW YORK — (m — The nation moved into its 53d month of business expansion this week with its eye on a turbulent stock market. After six weeks of slow trading and slipping prices, stocks exploded into activity this week. So heavy was the buying and selling that June volume on the New York Stock Exchange boomed to more than 128 million shares — the second biggest trading month in market history. Trading Up Trading Tuesday in the ex- was the heaviest in more than three years. The day's 10.49-million-share turnover marked only the sixth time volume had soared over 10 million shares in a day. While some of the nation's estimated 20 million shareholders watched the flash of prices in brokers' offices or made the financial pages the first stop in the daily news- change %P AVERAGE OF 60 STOCKS 3501 325 300 275 250 ^^^^^^ Jo n.- July Aug.

D«c. 174 173 172 171 170 169 Monday Tutidoy W«dn«»«lay TKurtdoy Friday paper, there was little in the economic news to explain the week's feverish activity. Economic statistics, as in recent weeks, presented a mixed picture. May figures released this week showed factory workers' take-home pay at a new peak and construction contracts 5 per cent higher than a year ago. AT&T Up American Telephone & Telegraph Co., the country's biggest corporation in terms of stockholder numbers logged record profits and rev enues for the 12 months end ed May 31. The parent company of the Bell Telephone system said its profits for the period totaled $1.7 billion or $3.28 a common share. AT&T took in $10.5 billion in revenues during the 12 months. The company's previous 12- month revenues of $9.8 billion produced profits of $1.5 billion or $3.16 a share. Cost of Living Up^ As prosperity continued to rise, so did the cost of living The Labor Department said its price index hit a peak of 109.6 in May, up 1.7 per cent over a year earlier. This meant it cost $10.96 to buy the same items that could have been bought for $10 during 1957-59. About half of the May increase — the second major climb in two months — was attributed to higher food prices. Meat and fresh vegetables were up 3.2 per cent. Economic dips came in orders for machine tools the tools of production. These were down 15 per cent in May from a year ago. Steel and automobile production fell. Automakers this week scheduled 194,044 new cars for assembly, a drop of 3.8 per cent from last weeli's 201,779. Steel output last week dipped to 2.68 million tons from the previous week's 2.74 million tons. The liver from a huge basking shark may yield as much as 200 gallons of vitamin-rich oil.
