$5 a day didn’t last very long – Minute 26

Because nobody can realize how rough it was in the ’30s. All that small wages – $5 a day didn’t last very long, you know. And it would soon run out of everything they had. And people had to take care of one another, which we did. Took care of lots of people. Our Masonic Lodges – God, we’d feed milk to kids – all that stuff you know. Had to do it. Had to help them. Because people were just starving. No jobs. The river road – when they built the river road, they, it put a couple, few people to work. Same with the Civic Center. All over the country at that time, they build different things – bridges and things to keep some people working, you know. But very few.
