Notes

Note N38Herbert Wayne Alger's father Herbert worked for the railroad. He left the railroad and the family moved to Salt Lake City where Clark (the second child) was born. From there they moved to Oakly, Idaho. Wayne was around the age of 6-8 years at that time. Shirl was born in Oakly. Wayne attended a one room schoolhouse there. The family lived on and farmed an aunt's potato farm as sharecroppers. The aunt lived in Salt Lake. When the Potato Association ordered potato crops plowed under because the price was too low, the family gave up farming. It was also about that time that Ione and Herbert separated. After the separation, Wayne stayed with his father and attended grades 3-6 in Caliente, Nevada. He was pretty much unsupervised and came and went as he pleased. During his 7th grade year, he bounced back and forth between Caliente and Enterprise, Utah, where the Terry family farm was located. In the 1930 Census Wayne and Shirl were living with their grandparents in St. George. He attended the 8th grade in Caliente while living with his father. He was living in Panache during his 9th grade year and was into a lot of trouble. He flunked the 9th grade. He moved to California with his mother to repeat the 9th grade. His mother Ione had remarried to Dr. J. Bruce Clark, a Chiropractor. Wayne was in the same class as Phyllis' sister Betty. One of his friends was dating Betty and Wayne drove his friend to Betty's house for a date. That's how he met Phyllis. After one year at Los Angeles' Polytechnic High school, he quit school in the middle of the 10th grade to take a job as a parts cleaner at a local new car dealer shop. His mother worked in a cafeteria where the mechanics came to eat lunch and she talked them into hiring him. From parts cleaner, he was promoted to lube man, then to a mechanic, which was his career for his lifetime. He was working as a lube man when he and Phyllis were married.

He and Phyllis used to go on dates to the Big Band dance halls in Los Angeles. After they were married, he mostly worked two jobs to raise the family and pay off the mortgage on Boden Street. Their marriage fell apart in the mid forties. During World War II he was a mechanic at Douglas Aircraft and worked the swing shift. Many times he worked a double shift and was gone all night. Other times there were blackouts and the crew would be locked in until the blackout was lifted. Sometimes he was working two jobs. One time she wouldn't go to the Saturday night dance with him so he went alone. Phyllis thought Wayne was seeing someone. Neither one of them communicated well with the other and the marraige began to detriorate. Another factor was Phyllis' parents George and Bea. They were alcholics and moved in and stayed in bed drunk for two weeks one time, during which Phyllis was buying liquor for them. Wayne got mad and physically threw them out of the house. Phyllis was hurt to see her parents treated like that.

After they separated, he moved to Elsinore, California, where he met and married Lorene Wilkenson. She had a daughter Linda by a previous marriage. They moved first to Portland, then to Nehalem, Oregon, where Wayne bought a garage. They built a house, and lived there until Lorene passed away. In 1979, he met and married Imogene Pierce of San Francisco. They lived in Nehalem for several years before moving to McMinnville, Oregon, where Imogene passed away in August, 2001. Wayne lived in McMinnville until his death.

By Larry Alger as told to him by Wayne on 21 September 2001.

On November 17, 1937, Wayne bought a 1928 Chrysler Roadster for .00. As noted in diary of Phyllis Woodford. 1
