Mrs. M.C. Ray from Mangum, Louisiana. Wife of construction worker at Camp Livingston who had been farming but came out here to make more money. The whole family has had flu. When they first arrived they had to sell their cars so they can't get to Alexandria very often to get milk and supplies for the children. She said that all her grocery bills here were twice as much for the same amount of food as they were in Mangum and that eggs were always at least twice as high. Louisiana
