Ray:  In thirty-nine and I went to business college.  It was just like a school year.  It wasn’t a whole year.  And when I graduated, I went to work.  I worked one year with the selective service.  And then I got a job with the soil conservation service.

Payne:  Here in New Albany?

Ray:  Yes.

06:39   Payne:  OK.  And what did your sisters do, your two sisters?

Ray:  Well, one sister was a nurse …a health nurse.  And the other sister worked at the …  wholesale grocery.

Payne:  As a secretary … or… clerk…

Ray:  As a secretary.

Payne:  So, your mother produced three workers, didn’t she?

Ray:  She had to (laughter).  If we survived, we had to.  But we made it … we didn’t … you know … we were poor but we didn’t know we were poor.  Things were cheap back then.

07:20   Payne:  Yes.  And probably your mother made all of your clothes.

Ray:  Yes.  Yes.

Payne:  She sewed …

Ray:  Yes.

Payne:  Did she make butter?  Did she make her own butter?

Ray:  Yes.  We had a cow.

Payne:  You did?  Living in town, you had a cow?

Ray:  Yes, and milk and butter.

Payne:  The cow was out in the back yard?

Ray:  Yes.

Payne:  And you had chickens?

Ray:  We may have had some but not too many.
