FARMING DURING WWII
Remembers saving with sugar and coffee. More people went out to jobs during WWII. Women worked out of the home. Men's jobs were available. Mrs. Honey never worked outside home except as a teacher before marriage.
Husband decided to be a preacher after attending church convention. Took correspondence courses at Cincinnati Bible Seminary and Phillips Bible Institute for two years. Practiced preaching on the cows as he milked. Had hired help.
