Title Remember When
Description REMEMBER WHEH? Lucille Allen Manti, Utah Senior Citizen Division Second Place Poetry We wore high-top button shoes* We wore long~legged underwear. We wore long black stockings, We wore bloomers that came below out knees. We wore flannel pecticoats. Woman wore shimmies. Hen wore armbands. Babies wore woolen long-sleeved undershirts-Babies wore long clothes. The drinking water stood in a bucket on the wash bench or stand. We washed our hands and faces in a "wash dish." We heated our wash water in a boiler on the stove. We softened the wash water with lye. We washed clothes with home made soap. We had no bath rooios' Our only heat in winter came from a Bood-burnlng heater and an old "Home Comfort" range. Our light at night was from the flames of two coal oil lamps. Women curled their hair with curling irons heated in s lamp chimney. We made ringlets by putting our hair up in rags. For every day we wore our hair in braids. We walked cs school. He learned the three "R's" at school. School started by the ringing of a bell. We obeyed our elders. We ate cooked gernade "mush" every morning for breakfast. We kept a start of "magic yeast." We made our own bread. Every family had their own cows. We polished our stove with stove polish. -41-
