Title Basket of Chips, page 124
Description A Basket of Chips there should be an easy meal for that day. Nevertheless, with a hungry bunch there was much to do. Then the wash was brought in and the clothes folded and sprinkled, and by that time all my work was attended to and we were ready for our evenings entertainment with some interesting book. But before I could get well into the story I would find her dozing - too tired to listen. We usually managed to have the clothes sprinkling after this first tired spell while I laid the fire for morning, and made other preparations for the next day. Then came our hour's uninterrupted reading. She hoped to continue her studies at the University of Cali- fornia and no doubt would have found much joy as a student there had she recovered from this crisis of her life. During the war she gave splendid service in the Red Cross, and it is a story I am proud to tell. No worker was more de- voted nor gave her time more freely. She put every cent she could spare into liberty bonds and government stamps. She kept a record of the time she spent at the Red Cross quarters each week. She was soon advanced to the position of instructor, which was to take the beginners and train them in making the different dressings by cutting and folding the gauze. After a strenuous afternoon she would return and take up the duties of the house and nothing seemed to be neglected. The house was just as clean and there was just as much variety in our meals. I wonder how she did it all! And during the evenings the family would knit army socks and sweaters while I read to them. She did her bit for our country all right! I have her red cross cap and apron which will ever be a part of my treasures. I have written of our meeting and our partnership, and I want to tell of what she meant to me and our children and I hope our grandchildren. We began our real struggle of life with a debt of one thousand dollars as an asset. My father-in-law attempted to get me appointed as the art instructor at the University of Utah, 124
