We had card parties up on fifth floor for men and women. We played Euchre, [inaudible], I don't know what else, five hundred---cribbage. Cribbage guys had their own party. They gave prizes for that.
I've heard a little bit about the brat fries or---
Oh yeah, steak fries, yeah. Out in Middleton, yeah. Oh we had a lot of parties. We did have some guys here, Jim Grady who worked in the supply room down on first floor there---it's changed now I guess---he was an outstanding bowler, was a city champion in bowling, at least for one year I know of. We had a fellow that was our welder that was a champion horseshoe pitcher for the City of Madison. Well we had a girl runner here too, I forget here name. But we had some well known people working here at the Lab during the War (WWII). But then we started downsizing and a lot of those guys are gone. We had our own credit union and I think that started in the late '40s.
Was that located here?
The office up there. Les Floeter was the head of that for several years.
