SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: Being drafted for the Army; the physical training in Minneapolis; medically deferred status that prevented him from being admitted into the Army; working for the Oliver Mining Company and getting more overtime after the war; his reaction to the war; the pressure he put on himself for not being able to participate in the war.
