Whistle Has Long
And Varied Career
The mill whistle, which soon is
to sound so melodiously to the
people of Vernonia, has had a
history that dates long before the
construction of the Oregon-Am­
erican mill. When R. A. Simmons,
chief engineer, first heard it (and
it was the first mill whistle he
ever heard) he was a boy in
Texarcana, Texas. It was taken
from mill to mill belonging to the
Central Coal and Coke Co. in the
south, seven in all, ultimately
seeing service at Carson, La. That
mill burned in 1926, and Mr. Sim­
mons, by that time grown into
his present job in Vernonia, sent
to friends in Carson to see if the
old whistle of his boyhood days
could be salvaged. It was, and he
put it in place at the O.-A. mill.
When it blows again, after its
long silence, it will sound like th i
voice of an old friend to all of us.
May it have a long and hard­
working career from now on!
