In the 1930's a gallon of gas was 10 cents !!!!

Every food costs was mainly just cents. example , Shoulder of lamb is  17 cents per pound , Sliced Baked Ham 39 cents per pound ,Dozen Eggs 18 Cents ,Bananas 19 cents for 4 Pounds !

If you got a Auburn Convertible Phaeton Sedan the costs would be $1145

Stan's Apology letter

Dear Stroheim

I want to apologize for my behavior . I really never meant to disrespect you like that , all i really wanted to do is protect him . I realized it wasn't really  my business to get in to this mess. What i did to you was over and beyond i apologize.

I really do need this job back because my family is really struggling right now . Ive been working with you for a while now and you could trust me through  it all . I will no longer disrespect you . I will do any thing to get this job back , i will even work extra hours for you.

So once again i am truly truly sorry for the disrespect that i gave to you . I understand now you are my boss and there wasn't any reason for me to do that to you .

Respectfully ,

Stan Jerome
