An amazing interview. He began logging at the age of twelve. "I worked in one place for a month or six weeks or sometimes just for a payday and felt that I wanted to go someplace else so I did. Any kid that was willing to work had no trouble what-so-ever finding a job even during the depression. Except for the several trips that I made, as did a lot of western boys in the early '30s, to other parts of the country by freight train to look the country over, to look for work and to see the world in a way, I was always able to find logging employment during the depression years."
