at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. I had bought the
old Ford from my father and the Government paid me for gas, oil
and storage and $100.00 per month rental. We all had to borrow
money to pay our expenses until the Government paid us for a
month's work. Several times we were broke before we got any
checks.
Bill, Marv and I got acquainted with some local girls and
this made our stay more interesting. The girl I dated was Mildred.
One Sunday we went along the river and had a picnic on the sandy
beach, and that is where I got the nickname of "Sandy" which stayed
with me for many years. Retired Judge George Kroncke, Jr., still
calls me Sandy when we meet.
When we left Trempeleau we were split up into teams of two
each and given separate territories to cover. Near the end of the
season we gathered together again and worked near Milton and Milton
Junction as there had been a nursery there which had sold a lot
of common barberry bushes. While working in that area I bought a
pure white collie pup. I kept it with me the rest of the summer
but when I went back to school I had to sell her. She was a
beautiful dog and very well behaved.
