Zack Shepherd, Lawyer

Zack Shepherd, lawyer: "Want me to tell you a WPA joke? Well, Harry Hopkins says to Mac Saxon (dist. super at Jasper, Ala.). 'The fellas on WPA has got to get all the necessaries for livin' outa their pay.' Is that a joke or ain't it? Well, the fireman said to the men: 'You men go an' work with the shovel and spade, while I go sit down in the shade.' "
