QUESTION 3
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU EVER CATCH COLD THERE?

Harry Briggs, Sr.:

Well, them time air was good for the children. Because in the house lock up[sic] air, so a cool house is good for you. So they didn't catch cold, I don't reckon. And it wasn't no bus travel, people used to walk five, six mile. That's why we went to fight for freedom. That's what we called it. So that's why we wants to do something to make it convenient for our children.
