Small cotton farmer, Kern County, California. He leases the land, and pays 1/4 of the crop for rent, also pays the water bill (irrigation). "It's come to that there's not going to be any more small farms in California. The big fellows have got us all with a ring in our nose. You take the small farmer like me--we can't come out. There's no difference hardly between me and my pickers--only I've got a place to stay out of the rain"
