Usually he stopped with only a step or two and waited until the car he wanted came by, when reversing the process, he was back on top of the train.

"The personnel men picked the candidates very carefully, often turn- ing them away with evasions such as was told of Mr. Knapp, of Hinton. A country boy had come to him ask- ing for a job on the railroad and after =sizing him up" Mr. Knapp said. "I have nothing open right now, young man, but (to make him feel good) I'll tell you what, lql give you the job of the first man that gets killed"!
