        A VISION TO WIN WITH

   On a Rock Island train from LaSalle to Council Bluffs is where my grandmother had a vision. As this vision appeared to her she scrambled to get a pencil and paper. The vision was a solution to a problem the Westclox factory was having with their machines which cost the company many thousands of dollars a year. My grandmother clearly seen the diagram in her head as if it was displayed on a TV screen. She had been giving this problem some thought because she was a line head at Westclox and was familiar with the problem. The Westclox company had offered anyone who could come up with a solution to this mechanical problem, a new car and some cash. Ruby had the diagram from her vision all written down now and she turned it in to the main offices when she got back to work on Monday. Westclox of course had to go through many of the ideas that were submitted and that included the ideas submitted by the best mechanics working the factory too.

Well to make a long story short, My grandma won! She got the car and she got some extra cash. You can find a picture of that car in the photo section on this website! She said that the many men who submitted ideas were a bit embarrassed that a woman had won the prize over them.
