In reading these columns one should never assume that community life was submerged by important national events such as World War II. Rather community life remained surprisingly normal and one gains the impression that the people Mrs.Rosebrook knew were determined not to allow their everyday life to be disrupted by any catastrophe, including the Dust Bowl storms. Perhaps this was their way of coping.
