LL: Now it was a private school, so did it cost money to come here?

JC: Yes, yes it did.

LL: Was it very expensive?

JC: Well, to some it seemed to be expensive because you got to look at the times that they were doing. And so yes, it was expensive. In fact, she paid my tuition, she let it carry, my tuition. In fact, she carried a few others.
And how we did, I say with my tuition, I think it was bartering. They got the work out of me. And others, they would do things and some parents would come in and assist in school work and be substitute teachers.
Back then you didnít have such a tight, you know, requirement to assist. And so parents would come and assist because they couldnít pay. There were many ways that Miss Rosetta worked it out. She would take her own retirement. I think thatís probably what happened to me. Iíve had--sometimes I think Iím following too much in her footsteps. But she would take her own money and pay peopleís tuition.
