Dust bowl farmer driving tractor with young son, near Cland, New Mexico.  "I left cotton growing east of Wichita Falls to come out here to get to grow wheat. (The superior status of wheat over cotton farmers is traditional.) I guess I've made 1000 miles right up and down this field in the dust when you couldn't see that car on the road, and had to use headlights. This soil is the best there is anywhere, but it sure does blow when it's right. If you stay in the house and wait for the dust to stop you won't make a crop.  But I"ve seen only one year since I came here in 1920 that I didn't make something"
