From the Editor -

Efforts to chase down names elicited this from Bill Ellsworth. I though it might help to spark folks' memories. Bill says: I worked in the retail from June 1971 to August 1974 (that's when I went back to finish school).

And so, these are names from that period that I can remember.

I worked in the product
I worked in the product assembly group in 1968-69, and then after attending a Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course, with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in Rishikesh, Himalayas India in 1970 I worked in the upstairs retail store. Great working environment, headed by George Marks & Bob Swanson. Both genuine and great people. They were very good to me, and help me get my start in life. I was introduced by a friend from California College of Art, where I had been a student. Also friend of Anna Chepourkova, who also became a TM Teacher.
