A product of the cotton mill. Frank Barnes, Box 463, Phoenix, Alabama. Been working over forty years in the cotton mills of Columbus, Ga. Started at 4 years old for 20 cents a day. Now getting $2. and is getting ready to be replaced by younger man. An ardent Socialist which has made him trouble here. Says, I had to put one of my girls into the Mill when she was 9 yrs old, or steal. Why don't they give us enough wages to support our families? They don't intend to do that. Location: Phoenix, Alabama.
