Sunday, October 15, 1933

Went to Sunday School and church this morning. Ollie was over. Went over to Mrs. Raifert's in p.m.
A businessman gives away overcoats to unemployed men in Kansas City,
Nearly 500 unemployed men line up outside "Unemployed Gateway Loan and Sporting Co."
to receive overcoats in Kansas City, Missouri. Louis A. Cumonow, a local merchant, distributes
 the overcoats free of cost to the needy.

Note: 1933 was the worst year of the depression with unemployment peaking at
25.2% with ( 1 in 4 people unemployed)
