Say No To Hoover
By: Malayna Bryan
Time to reelect
Hoover walks around all day not worrying about anything while we the people are starving and living in Shantytowns. He says that he is Reassuring but he isn't quite enough. He says he is just being cautious but the the truth is he doesn't want to help us. He won't give us Direct Relief and he says he thinks Government should intervene but i don't see any government official down here helping out anyone. So its time to knock Hoover off his pedestal and get a new president because this one isn't working out. So be ANTI HOOVER!
People get evicted from their homes and take little with them and build homes like these on the outskirts of the city. These towns are known as Shantytowns.
The Bonus Army
Army vets were promised a bonus in 1945 but they needed it now because of the rough times and they asked for a $500 bonus now to support them through this rough time. They had their own little shantytown in protest and then Hoover sent a military force in there to burn it down and many were hurt. Plus no bonus.
Farmers are getting so desperate they literally have to burn their own crops and pour out the milk in truck for they can create a food shortage to be able to earn money for their families.
