RECOLLECTIONS
Aunt Becky would let Carrie listen to radio because it took electricity, so she heard about attack on Pearl Harbor late in the day. Discussion about what to do in event of war. Story of Aunt Becky dying of urinary poisoning while Robert Taylor was in military in WWII. Discussion of farm life during Great Depression. "We starved through it." Most of corn went into the livestock. Believes Great Depression did not effect farm people as much as city-folk. Mentions gas & sugar rationing during WWII. Ground feed for chickens.
