The Crew of 1953

"THE LINEMAN IS WORTHY OF HIS HIRE"

The boys above, left to right kneeling, Sidney Coleman, Wade Hartley, E.S. Webster, Henry Geter; left to right standing, Forest Fields, Walter Riddle, F.M. Whitehead, A.F. Gibbs and Woodrow Gillis are the ones you must depend upon to restore service when outages occur. They always respond in good fashion day or night in wind storms, lightning and thunder, or what have you. They must brave the storms and encounter the dangers; they often have to rise out of bed at night; often they are called to break up their own plans for personal pleasure or entertainment, but they never offer a word of complaint. Their job is necessarily dangerous, regardless of all safety precautions. The lineman are never satisfied when the lines are not carrying juice to the members, and they do not rest until service is restored.
