Working and Going to School
"I was the youngest salesman they ever put on the road."
"I went to Murphy High School. That’s a junior school. And then I went to Tech High School, and then I went to Georgia Tech...I never completed. I was working while I was going to Tech. I went to night school. And the war came along in 1942. They sent me an invitation to join the Army. They drafted me. I was traveling for General Electric Company at the time. I was the youngest salesman they ever put on the road. In Geo-. I had Macon, Columbus, Augusta south. But there weren’t many people in Georgia, in that part of the country then. But I did alright...I made my quota for two years. And then I had to go in the service."
