This is Mr. Newberger and that's his brother. [Taylor: Mr. Newberger is on the left. Do you remember his first name?] I think it was Theodore. We never called him by his first name [laughs]. [Taylor: What about his brother? Do you remember what his first name was?] H.T.E. Newberger. I don't know what that stood for. [Taylor: Who is this man here in the front?] That's the foreman.
