Tuesday, March 21, 1933

Was pretty nice today. We jumped in Gym. I made three feet, one inch. Daddy lost his job.

On March 21, 1933, FDR sent a message to Congress stating that he wanted to establish a new forestry relief agency: I propose to create a Civilian Conservation Corps to be used in simple work, not interfering with normal employment, and confining itself to forestry, the prevention of soil erosion, flood control, and similar projects. I call your attention to the fact that this type of work is of definite, practical value, not only through the prevention of great present financial loss, but also as a means of creating future national wealth.
