I will never forget the Last day we worked before Christmas day 1969, from 8;00-AM on all day people were filling bottles in the Plant and drinking up a storm! I visited the Goverment Building around Lunch and half of them were already out of it, these were the ones who were supposed to keep watch on all the None Taxed Alohol! People had run the soda machine out by 11:00 AM and no one seemed to be working. At the end of the day just about everyone in the warehousing part of the Plant were bombed out! I later heard the Bottling was doing ok that way also! When I went to leave that night Security Leaned out of the Little building and swaying a little told me to have a good Christmas even He had too much! The Plant had such an old system of heating the Warehouses that if it would have not gone out of Bussiness they would have had a real time of heating things today! We had two Giant Coal Boilers and a Giant Oil Boiler out front near the old Still and the heat for all the warehouses which ran down a cement Highway on each side through the Plants 199 acres had a system of Pipes wrapped in Asbestos in the air on uprights the kind of Asbestos that blew everywhere! Also Pipes running in the air for Whiskey that was dumped to run to the Blend house at the very Back of the plant on the way to the River and steer Pens, and then it would go down another system of pipes to the Bottling house out front! Some days when you went into a warehouse that had not been open for awhile you could almost get drunk on the Fumes! I remmeber one time in the bottling House they decided to watch an old lady that had come to the Plant to work because of her amount of years from the old Continenal bottling house when they closed it. It seemed she said she was cold all the time and wore a Heavy sort of sweater, well one day at the end of the day they decided they wanted to know why she seemed to put on weight at the end of each day so they brought in a Lady Secuity Person to do a search on her, well under the sweater and her blouse was a vest with pockets from top to bottom that were full of 1/2 pints of Whiskey and Scotch, needless to say she was in deep trouble as if the Tax stickers were out of state she could be arested for High jacking the stuff as was the way in the warehouses with no Tax sticker you were sealing untaxed Liquor! They lost so much money on sealing it seemed People just took the chance but if caught not only would you get Jail but sometime they would even take your Home so I was told anyway and I knew of a guy who spent allot of time in jail for doing that there. There was an old man named Clair Von Alt that worked there nice old guy who could not stop drinking. Well he had never learned to read or write and he had a sweet tooth and used to look in peoples lunches when they were not there for candy, well one day he went out sick and did not come back for a week, when he did he told me he spent the week in the Bathroom on the toilet! I later was told by one of the workers that someone had put a large Bar of Chocolate Exlax in their Lunch bag and he had ate the whole thing not knowing because he could not read. We also rolled Dice allot those days when we got a break as the Lunch room was so far down the road most times, One time I started with about a dollar and was up to Fifty dollars and ended up losing it all anyway as they kept you playing till they cleaned you out. There was never a dull day working at Kinsey in Linfield Pa. Again I must say even though the Heating system was not a good thing the Quality of our Product was always top Priority for Publicker they had signes saying make it right we want to always make the best and as far as I think We Did.
