Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

History Lecture at Tech.

I attended a history lecture on the Tech campus by a Tech history professor last night. The subject was the Reagan- Carter debate in 1980. There was much comparison with the current presidential race. There were one to two hundred students in attendance.

Professor David Anderson gave a good talk. This is the first of a series of lectures on history that will be held at Tech this winter. I enjoyed the talk. It was interesting to be on the campus in the evening. There have been several articles on this talk in the Ruston paper. They all said that the lecture was free and the public was invited. Sounded good to me. I am not positive but I think that I was the only public present at the lecture.
