"Most of the farmers, just about all of them, when the WPA came in, worked on the roads. I think, as I remember, they got a dollar a day for working. And if they had a team of horses, they got an extra 50-cents a day for the horses. My dad never did that. He just never did that. I don't know how he made it, but he did. He was a pretty independent guy, and proud. I think there was a lot of pride in that, not having to do that."
