Durst, Walter  (1949)  

November 1949  From the Good Old Days pages 

Walter Durst has resigned as manager of the Neillsville Milk Products Cooperative.  Durst will be succeeded by B. H. Crissinger of Fairmont, Minn.  This change was made at a meeting of the directors held Saturday night.  Mr. Crissinger was present at the meeting, and acquainted the members with his qualifications. 

The resignation of Mr. Durst grows out of weariness and considerations of health.  Prior to undertaking this managerial responsibility, Mr. Durst had been partial retirement, after a long period of operating a cheese plant.  He had spent years at the Hemlock factory and had operated there under difficult war conditions.  What he went through there left its mark upon a physique, which had experienced the wear and tear of war. 

After some years as manager of the Cooperative, Mr. Durst seeks less responsibility and tension, and had so indicted to the directors.  The understanding is that Mr. Durst will not part company with this connection, but that he will now serve the Cooperative as a fieldman, engaging in the campaign for quality.
