When a country boy becomes “paper boy” —1933

March 29, 2014
By Harry Adam Zoller , Special to The Times

Our family moved from the Whipple Creamery Dairy farm to the "bottoms," now called East Norwood in Marietta, Ohio in 1933. My Dad had received his WWI bonus and wanted to leave farming for work in town. My Mom agreed because she didn't want me to ride a bus to Marietta High School where I was to go that fall of 1933. Our family was Dad (Harry Simon Zoller), Mom (Clara Leora Zoller), me (Harry Adam Zoller, 12), brother (Albert James Zoller, 10) and little brother (Howard Calvin Zoller, 4). The bottoms were in the flood plain of Duck Creek which flowed into the Ohio. We had a little two bedroom rancher. Howard slept on the couch in the living room. He had pneumonia that year.
