college's in the 1930

  Tuition in the 1930's was $400, which included the General Fee. The Room and Board $520 and text books were $35 and clothing and miscellaneous $260. The major difference of tuition now and in 1930's is that now tuition can very from 19,000 and more.

  Going to college also mean you had to pay for gas when driving to college. Gas in the 1930's was 17 cents per gallons. Also food back then was super cheap compared to now in the 30's bread was 9 cents and today it's $1.98, hamburgers were 12 cents and now it's 3.99. But you can't buy gas if you don't have a car a cost of a car was $600 and today it's 30,000 or more. Another big difference is that back than a house was $3,845.00 and now its $289,500. Everything was cheaper back then right? so you would think everyone could afford nice things, more things than we can now but another difference is their wages and how much they got paid .

Dear Mr.stroheim

I am sorry that I backed up the other employe. Even if it was none of my buisness. I need my job, because I have a family to support. I ask for this one favor and in return i'll do better next time. I should've minded my own buisness , i just did what i believed in. I wanted to stand up for others but i should'nt have. I help my dad with the money i make working for you. My whole family depends on me and my dad to make money. So im sorry i hope you give me another chance because i learned from my mistakes and i hope you can see that too.
