Some 23 years ago, Dick Shetler was an egg candler and butcher s helper at Garver Bros, store in Strasburg.
Today, Richard L. Shetler, at 42, is general manager of General Electric’s command system division at Daytona Beach, Fla., where only last week he was honored as “Industrialist of the Year” at a large banquet.
The son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Shetler of Strasburg heads 3 GE departments and one operative system, employing more than 10,000 persons. If separated from GE and made into a single company they would make one of the 50 largest firms in the nation.
In layman language the present responsibility of Shetler and his associates is “putting astronauts on the moon and bringing them back to earth.”
Shetler’s rise through the executive ranks of GE has been almost meteoric as a space shot. Today his departments are responsible for a broad range of products and services, primarily electronic in nature.
Those divisions are: Apollo Support Department at
Daytona Beach, Communications Products Department at Lynchburg, Va., Military Communications Department at Oklahoma City and the Mississippi Test Support Operation.
A GE sketch on Shetler says: “During his 20-year career Shetler has demonstrated a marked ability to organize and lead several of the most challenging defense and space projects ever undertaken by GE. He established an outstanding record for managing the development of complex radar and communication systems for long-range application.”
Shetler first attracted the attention of GE executives when, as a 24-year-old, green project engineer at Syracuse, N.Y., he was assigned to a 3-dimensional radar warning system. He jj was handicapped in testing his theories because he didn t have adequate space.
But that didn’t stump the Strasburg High and Ohio University graduate. He simply wrote out a requisition slip for “one building!” Never before, and never since, have GE overlords received such a requisition. But Shetler got his building and was immediately tagged as one of the most promising men in GE employment.
That was in 1946 and he had been with GE less than 3 years, having gone there from Ohio University as an engineering trainee on long-range navigation equipment. In 1946 he was named production project engineer at Schenectady. The next year he was promoted to liaison engineer in the electronics division and soon became a major project engineer, working on one of the nation s priority radar search systems.
In 1959 Shetler was chosen as supervisor of ground radar engineering and 2 years later became department engineer.
In 1955 he was selected to manage a special radar project with the responsibility for the development of the longest range radar system built in the free world. The onetime egg candler-and butcher’s helper really was on his way to the top.
When GE was selected in 1957 as prime contractor for Atlas ICBM guidance, Shetler was appointed manager of the sponsibility for the designing and production of the radio newly - formed missile guidance section with over - all re-See DICK SHETLER, Page 2
Negotiators 'Give, Take' In Argeements
Bv NEIL GILBRIDE
WASHINGTON (AP)-A give and take agreement has ended the threat of a nationwide railroad strike with President Johnson a victor in the toughest domestic test of his administration.
A few hours after the agreement was reached, two dissident union officials threatened to strike part of the New' York Central Railroad. But sources involved in the negotiations in Washington discounted the possibility that the threat would be carried out.
Johnson, obviously elated, went before television cameras Wednesday night to announce settlement of the long, highly complex dispute a little more than 48 hours before a scheduled strike threatened to tie the nation’s economy in knots.

Youngster Gets TV Reply
PARK FOREST, III. (AP)— President Johnson’s announcement of the nation’s railroad dispute settlement has gained him the special friendship of at least one 7-year-old.
“He’s nice,” said Cathy May Baker. “He mentioned my name.”
Two weeks ago, Cathy May wrote to the President, asking him to “keep the railroads running” so her grandmother, Mrs.
May Coyle of Yonkers, N.Y., could be present at the girl’s first Holy Communion last Saturday..
Wednesday night, via network television, President Johnson answered the second grader.
“Cathy May,” he said in announcing the settlement, “if you are watching tonight, I am pleased to tell you that the railroads are going to continue to See REPLY, Page 20
