Contributor: jdeanhagler Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

James V. Chandler, who will be celebrating his 86th birthday Wednesday, recalled his early years in Inkom while chatting at his farm home on Buckskin road northeast of Inkom. It was in November 1911 when he came to Inkom from the Twin Falls country. He was just 20 years old, and his first home was in a little log house near the location of the present church. Chandler found a job in Portnuef hauling rock for road surfacing and was paid a sum of 25 cents an hour. In those days, that was the average wage. He later had a job hauling hay to the George A Whitworth dairy in Inkom, which supplied milk to the surrounding areas. Whitworth hired Chandler to milk cows, which he did for 16 months, night and morning without missing one milking and all by hand. His job was to milk 20 of the herd twice each day. After four years of courting Vera, one of Whitworth's daughters, the two were married in the fall of 1917. Their first home was the Holly place in Buckskin basin. "we just had a small place," Jim said, "but we were happy and had good times." Jim and Vera had 12 children. They farmed and ran cattle in Buckskin for many years.Then in the fall of 1935, they moved closer to Inkom It was here that Vera died. Some time later, he married his present wife, the former Geneva Evans. Besides farming, Chandler worked as a road boss for the highway department and operated a threshing machine for several years. Chandler has been active in his church, filling a mission in the Montana are. He served as Elders Quorum president, high priest group leader, senior Aaronic instructor, and more recently a home teacher. "There is no secret to living 86 years," Jim said. "I've worked for a living since I was 12 years old, and it has been a good life." Many of Chandler's children still live in this area. The eight daughters are Mrs. Homer (Maren) Barron, Mrs. Don (Marie) Moser, Mrs. Edward (Beatrice) Shaffer, all of Inkom; Mrs. Warren (Alice) Jones, Van Nuys, California, Mrs. George (Anora) Woods, Oregon; Mrs Jack (Denice) White, Bancroft; Mrs Clarence (Thelma) Hitbrand and Mrs Robert (Pril) Hale, Pocatello. Chandler's sons are; Orsen of Pocatello, Samuel, George and Seren all of Inkom. He also has 60 grandchildren, 44 great-grandchildren and one great greaty grandchild at this time.

James Victor Chandler was 48 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

James Victor Chandler was 66 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

James Victor Chandler was 72 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
