QUESTION 13
SUSAN J. LEVENE:

Tell me about his new cars.

EVELYN SMITH MUNRO:

Oh yes. Mitch, there were other aspects that sometimes people might have been a little critical about. Mitch always dressed pretty well, and always looked pretty neat, and he told me that this was because, he said, "The union members want me to look like a boss. They don't want me to look like a sharecropper." He also drove a good car, which he turned in every year for a new car. He began this practice when his old Jalopy was retired because members of the Socialist Party in New York were afraid he couldn't get away fast enough if he continued to drive it, and they gave him a new Chevrolet, which he then continued to use. In fact I think he always used a Chevrolet, and usually a new one, and we always made these long trips in it.
