8 $12.00 hat and it was so big that she used it for an umbrella — today everything is shrinking, even the dresses. I remember when I was young all the boys used to stand on the corner where a trolley car stopped and when a girl got on the trolley our eyes almost popped out of our heads when we saw a girl's ankle in silk stockings. How times have changed. Everything has changed for that matter and when we pass out of the picture there'll be more changes. You know I don't think all these things would change if it wasn't for these new inventions like the radio and a lot of other things. It seems the people just woke up. What I mean is that everything is brought before the people today. The radio, the newspapers and there are more magazines than before and even in the churches they preach about everything and I think its a good idea. Of course the churches always preach one thing that in important and is money. I used to go to church every Sunday at the nine o'clock mass — the early masses are the shortest — well I don't go any more because every Sunday it was the same old story about money. It seemed that the priest didn't like the idea of the pennies being thrown into the [basket?] — he wanted silver. Well religion is alright and I'm for it 100 per cent , but when people haven't got it—how are they going to give? [?] And let me tell you something else, these priests and ministers are getting along better now than in the old days. I remember when they used to walk to places — today they ride in big cars. Well , why don't they walk and give the expense of running these cars to the poor. I bet you think that I don't believe in supporting the church — well I do but let those of the church help too. My son goes to church every Sunday and I'm glad.
