Transcription

"I worked at D.I.L.until the plant closed and perhaps this is the place where I should tell you that I was previledged to type my own quit slip. I worked in the office and when the war was gearing down and the necessity to fill great quantities of shells was becoming less and less, they started closing down production lines until the only line in production was line 1 and that is why I worked until August of 1945 because that was when production ended and because I was in production and because I was in the office and my job was to do production reports and this kind of thing, I think personnel got bogged down and they brought down a lot of typing for me to do which included typing quit slips, and so I typed my own quit slip."
