Rev. C .H. McCall, preacher of Colored M. E. Church: "To my way of thinking as far as the working and the advantage that has come to us from the New Deal, a good many people have been able to pull through this year that wouldn't have been able to pull through without the working of the WPA. The repairing of the churches and the improvement to the town in general have been a great help to us. If it was to quit we would go back farther than we were when we started because to cut it off now would throw us in a worse panic than we were when it started. During the winter season the streets being cleaned up has helped church attendance. People didn't care to go out when the ditches were so deep."
