Now," I said, "tough.... You go and get somebody else to take up a collection for you." And you knew everybody. You knew the fel? lows who were carrying stories to the bosses. You'd set traps for them, you know. I can tell you of one incident, we had one fellow, boy. We were wondering how the stories were getting out. We couldn't fathom it at all. But we had an idea. So anyway, this fellow came into the shack one day and he sat down. And I started running down one of the superintendents. He had just come on, boy, and I was call? ing him--he was from England. And I called him everything under the sun. And about an hour afterwards, this man walked in the shack. And he came right to me. "Oh, Frank," he said, "you think I'm quite a prick, don't you?" And I started to laugh. "Well," I said, "thanks. Jack," I said. "I didn't mean a word I said. I think you're a wonderful guy. And so do all the fellows here. But," I said, "we had a fellow car? rying stories. Now I know who he is." There were only 4 of us in the shack; 3 of us were there; this fellow goes; the su? perintendent comes back. Jack had just come on assistant superintendent. (And then what do you do with a fellow like that?) Well, then you ignore him. He has no life after that at all. You just ignore him. Walk by him like he was a stick. Natural that after maybe 2 or 3 months you'll find he either shifted to another place, on the back of the mill somewhere. But he doesn't stay on the fur? nace with you. You ignore him that bad-- you make life so miserable for him that he doesn't stay there. (From Frank's notebook:) "July the 24th, 1971.
