Felix Kummer was Pop's secretary at the Packard Company where he was flying the diesel.. That was when we lived at 50 Ridge Road, Ferndale. He was certainly a good one. They didn't test planes together, he was a secretary in the office. He is wearing goggles and everything in the picture, but Pops must have just given him a ride, that's all. He was crazy about Pops. That was in the days before they had women secretaries.
