A few highlights:

16:57 Walter taught himself how to operate an electric sewing machine at the "You Need A Hat" company. A visit from the department of labor resulted in him being fired. He thought the labor department was on his side. He though they were trying to get him more money. After the fact he realized they were not on his side at all.

23 56 Sometimes I don't call it drafting. My labor service were confiscated by the U.S. government.

24:50 Assigned to the motor pool he was instructed to paint a 2 1/2 tonne truck. He knew full well that it only meant the flatbed, even though he was told to paint the whole truck. He proceeded to paint the whole truck. Humorous.

 

28:58 After being published on the front page of a Philadelphia paper about discrimination and shabby military practices, he was asked by his superiors what his agenda was. He responds that he took an oath to uphold and defend the constitution against enemies, both foreign and domestic.

 

32:30 W. E. B. Du Bois' "Black Reconstruction" inspired him to major in economics, quoting "Negro's are not going to see any salvation in our country until they understand the economic system."

 

40:24 Getting his first teaching job, he quickly learned he was both teacher and student. In short, he was hooked.
