“My sisters and I opened a café, ‘The Hopkins Twins Café’ in Paris TN, after the war. We had war jobs in Chicago and were used to a few things by then. We were young and wanted to have fun and it was so much work for so little money… it didn’t last long.”

Roberta Long
Georgetown
“I worked for a boxing promoter in Portland. I was hired as a legal secretary but ended up doing all sorts of stuff, including eating a lot of steak dinners. The boxers had is much worse. They were treated like dogs.”
