However, a look at the actual image seems to indicate that Haase is working for a biscuit manufacturer ("Mfg.") as a Manager ("Mgr.") in some department ("Dept."). I'm tempted to say in the "Cone" department.
|1940 U. S. Census, Multnomah County, Oregon, City of Portland, ED 37-427, sheet 4A, lines 16 and 17, household of Anna L. Haase; digital image, Ancestry.com, obtained 5 February 2013. This is just part of the Haase entry.|
Always get to the original document if at all possible.
The digital image being used is not the actual census--it's an image made from a microfilm copy of the original. I've got no reason to doubt that it's a faithful reproduction of the original--that's not an issue.
But I'm curious as to whether that's "Cone" or something else.
And I'm not worried about the neighbor who works as a power machine operator in a bathing suit factory.
