If I discuss little bit about in chapter 14 says “layoffs and protests”

In 1936 There were a massive economic crisis than ever in 1933 when unemployment had fallen from 24.7 percent to below 17 percent so president Roosevelt made his first cut in July of WPA budget by 25 percent and federal one by third so most of the art projects were laid off and revived pink slips for different states such as New York Chicago and san Francisco.

A lot of protests worked out and responded to the laid off with a serious disruptive they took over the headquarter of the art projects for more than 200 protests pushing the chairs and the desks at the door at eight floor to keep police from entering also cut the phone wireless then the police arrived some were arrested after they fought


Actually when I go through and read all the chapters, I got the most important that I interested me. When Fleming who was black active man looking for a part time job to get pay all his needs about concern house hold and many black people were live in poverty they couldn’t even get their diets .he took decision how he can focus on and solve those problems as he explained one of his friend who used to live with him. Fleming was really feeling as he told to his friend and persuaded what he believed about the unbalanced administration. He surveyed the economic and racial because the black people didn’t have confidence at that time so they hated each other of resist cal fells, but really it was not that problem for Americans beside the economy. However, it was really good tried that were made by Eleanor Roosevelt to bring down the racial tension between the white and black. One quote explains that well and that is, " the black people liked Eleanor Roosevelt for her progressive racial views and made meeting both black and white people that invitation was that blacks regularly to the White House." this quotes explains how the Eleanor was trying hard to show that blacks had the same values as the white by inviting them to the White House.

He is good researches and good read always in the society, he is good working in this job and any time.

Journal Seven by Abdulwasi

The Fleming story was an interesting one that captured my attention. Fleming was a black man looking for a part time job to pay for his tuition and his bills. The discussion he had with his roommates about the racial tension and the impact of it was another problem for Americans beside the economy. However, the attempts that were made by Eleanor Roosevelt to bring down the racial tension between the white and black. One quote explains that well and that is, "They like Eleanor Roosevelt for her progressive racial views and for inviting blacks regularly to the White House."(300) This quotes explains how the Eleanor was trying hard to show that blacks had the same values as the white by inviting them to the White House.


In the beginning of this chapter, my mood was set about what it was going to be about. Many of the people like Thomas Fleming had jobs and were living good. They never thought anything would go wrong until the markets crashed. Everyone was devistated. No jobs and no money. There was only one option, the WPA. Many seeked relief from the depression as it swept across the country leaving a path of distruction.

I thought chapter eleven ONE NATION, ONE PLAY was the most interesting thing on the reading. This play it can't happen here was published by Sinclair Lewis and it was ati-fascist play. Especially, Germany and Italy had fascist dictators and some of the U.S individuals attempt to establsih fascism regimes in the U.S. alot of people like this play and most the nation was interesting eagerly. Hallie Flanagan later says, "Who thought up this idea , anyway. The idea was that in eighten cities nationwide" Eighten cities is a big number. therefore, I could not think any other play would be so interesting.
journal seven is a response to chapters 10 to 14. the most responsive chapter i came up with is number 14. the title is layoffs and protests, and in the second paragraph Nick Taylor writes "by 1936 the massive spending that had characterized the new deal since its launch in 1933 had eased the economic crises but no erased it." as anyone should have seen this coming that the new deal plan had to run out of money sooner or later would have to confront the problem of lack of money and the need to lay off workers. which is ironically cause that was the reason the deal was started, to employee people not fire them. then later on in the reading it comes to mention that Roosevelt had to cut the WPA by 25 percent one Federal One by a third. then it talked about the layoffs and how 2,000 arts workers received pink slips in just new york alone. odiously this is the beginning of the end for the new deal, as it slowly starts to close its doors. they are starting to turn people away.

Journal 7 Konstantin Gorodnov

In today's reading I thought that chapter 13, "The American Guides: Idaho Versus Washington, D.C." was very interesting. In this chapter the author talks about the start of the Guide project by the WPA. And it also talks about the competition between Alsberg, who was the head of the Washington, D.C. guide, and Fisher, who was the head of Idaho guide. Fisher had all the odds against him, because he didn't have enough people working for him. He also did not have any workspace, so he ended up doing the most of the work himself. But in the end, against all the odds Fisher finished first. I think that showed how determined Fisher was, because he did most of the work on the guide by himself.

Journal 7

The most interesting chapter to me was "The American Guides: Idaho Versus Washington, D.C." It was really funny how Alsberg and Fisher were competeng whose guide will be published first. The quote that I liked is on page 313-314 last paragraph, when Alberg sent and editor to Idaho to revise Fisher's guide. Editor did not like his guide and Fisher decided to offer him some liquor, and when he was drunk Fisher took him to a train station and sent him back. it is of coarse understandable why they were competeng. If Idaho was first state to publish a guide then it would get fame first, and every Sate will decided to follow its guide for writing their own.

In my ideas if I talk about the most interesting of an artist is largely realized how they greeted in commercial the society, because the most of the people did not have the jobs. When this projects funding the government it seems to solve the problems, the job increasing t and the economy grow up that was the really interesting of this arts projects. If I explain what I understanding in the arts, arts is the one of the most interesting. Is a good projects that people needs at that time and I say that is good ideas and I say the one how funding is smart guy.
Yes! It’s the important to give children and every Americans this opportunity, because the most of the people did not have jobs and most they where straggling to funding day life or their life’s low life. So when artist came the most of the people where funding jobs also the children got easy jobs

If I discuss little bit about the art, we learned so many different things since we started learning about how the arts began and speared out the whole nation.
The most interesting of art to me is that the theater projects because the artists began to show up in the theaters in the first time in the history to allow people such as students in high schools and colleges to entertain these shows something different and also advertise for the business products and it was really good though, also it was really cheaper and everybody could afford to pay that money which was less very cheaper to compare right now.
The art provided to society for painting value and it is very important to give children and everybody Americans an opportunity to learn about the painting or create art because painting plays big role in the society and helps everybody to provide or draw and paint for his own skills by just watching or even thinking about it, so if we will not know how to do painting we will not be able to draw or create something to using our own knowledge , also will not be able to produce or develop something that we use now and really very important rule for human life.
In this case, the society able to provide painting that is very attract full and makes beautiful for the Businesses, Magazines, and Museums.

if i explain little bit about the quote of page 248 says "thier usefulness has been widely doubted" and what that means is that the news papers were against the money that the goverrnment were paying the artists and the workers especially at new york times and said the money were spending in artists was unusefull and needed to be spend some thing else such as building roads and creating other things

I was very dissappointed to read that for the people art was nothing. Especially when so many newspapers wrote that it was "boondoggling". If I were a newspaper reporter, I would think first before I write, because writing is an art and creativity also. Newspaper reporter is an artist as all other artists, only in a different field. I was very happy to read that art wasn't left behind, and at least 25 percent of WPA budget was spent on it. I liked Flanagan quote, "The thetre is more than a private enterprise; it is also a public interest which, properly fostered, might come to be social and educative force."

What are the Fragments?

What are the Fragments?
When was I started a school, I have this problem, but right now 50%. I knew my problem and I knew what I want to do in my sentence like subjective and verb, too. Even, last quarter I had this problem, I say to your men and women in my classmen are carefully these problems. A sentence fragment is an incomplete thought, or I can say, some thing may be missing verb and subjective, between though from the word group, it may simple be an incompletes thought, the fragments generally result from any one of two cases.
1- Luck of a subject
Shako planned her trip to America for a year. And religiously deposited ten percent of the earnings toward that goal

The second half of the example is a fragment, because the subject is missing.

CORRECTION, Shoko planned her trip to America for a year and religiously deposited ten percent of the earning toward that goal.
Denise planning to body-sit for her older sister.
This is a fragment because part of the verb is missing.
CORRECTTION- Denise is planning to body-sit for her older sister.
I reviewed my notes thoroughly. Before I took my math test.
The second half of the example is a fragment because it is an incomplete thought- even though it has a subject (I) and a verb (took). The fragment is broken off from the previous sentence.
Correction- I review my note thoroughly before I took my math test.

When was the Negro theatre filled, that was best interesting with the walking Negro people? After that, she was travelling many countries around world, and the write said, “But it was politically inoffensive;”she did not ran another country in African, Ethiopia, from New York City. They was said,” a poor production of the comedy of Errors.” She would start traveling to school and she was working a churches. “The tryout theater opened women of destiny and one of the Hollywood studies paid 25,000 for an option on the script.” She was good worked her moment.

journal five from liban

The most interested to me in the art chapter was when the WPA spent 25% of the arts project. Also the federal one spent approximately $40 million and employed a total of some 40,000 workers It is really good to put money because people tried working in the roads, painting house and construction so they need to get easy jobs and then they sent their kids to the arts school. “It was one of the greatest efforts in the history to make democracy a democracy,” and many artists took it as natural evolutionary stage in the nation’s developments because it is public interest.

Journal Five Abdulwasi

The perception of art in 1930’s in politicians eye wasn’t seen as an important project to solve the economy. It’s was just seen as an entertainment. However, Art is something that any human being wouldn’t ignore and affects all human beings emotions and feeling toward any subject in life. Therefore, if the art is used to express the feeling and emotions of people, it would motivate the labors and everybody who sees or hears it to work hard and achieve a goal that would eventually take the country out of economical crisis.

The Negro Theater

Elmer Rice was very interested in the theater and from what I have discovered she traveled because she wanted put people on stage as actors and create the theater life. She wanted to discover more about the federal theatre project. She wanted to create a Negro theater, but they would let because they thought that the theater would not be successful and people were raciest. It was not fair the black people I thought, but that’s how people looked at it back then.

Journal 5 Konstantin Gorodnov

In today's reading the first chapter stood out the most. WPA is starting to sponsor art, and a lot of people are not happy about it, and starting to disagree and even think that WPA is worthless, for example New York Times wrote on September 1, 1936 "Their usefulness has been widely doubted". Arts are very important for many people; without art our life would be miserable and boring. WPA was right to support art, even in hard times like these, because art is really important and working on art projects still gave people jobs.

Journa Five

The most interesting idea in this chapter was the idea of crating more job through the cration of art project. They spend about fourty million on this project to crate job. This idea was disagreed on because some say it was dangerous, anti-American and not worth any support at all. Some say that it would cause abandonment on the engeneering projects. Here is a quote supporting quote of the idea I'm talking about, on an editorial newspaper it says "such 'boomdoggling', tend to bring the engineering projects into discredit with it, and aought to be abandoned."
I thought the most important thing in this chapters is how the arts projects were developed and how American people liked it. "millions of Americans, many for the first in their lives, thronged to concerts and plays and studied painting and drawings, much of the time without having to take a penny from their pocket. They were sending their children to free art and music classes, and attending these classes on their own" all these sentences describing how the four projects under Federal One were had improved the american entertainments such as theatre shows and other publics entertainments.

response to the arts program

not much of a response but i can connect to the reading when it talked about the Shakespeare play Macbeth. i read this play in high school and found it very interesting. when i got to the part in the writing about switching locations from the Scottish heath to the Haitian jungle i thought it was a good idea. it would definitely give the story more depth and let the audience connect to it more. the quot from the text that goes along with this is "there would be voodoo priestesses instead of witches around a boiling cauldron and Napoleonic military costuming to replace Elizabethan gowns and tunics."

I will like to about one of the interesting that Roosevelt’s recognized and to grow up to establish the economy and trade. If I take one of the Roosevelt speeches, the first paragraph on the second page. “Our international trade relations, though vastly important, are in point of time and necessity secondary to the establishment of a sound national economy.” Roosevelt he seems to spare his people to change on their lives and he makes many different things that he effort in this country. and he always like to take about, how the people through this economy problems and he did the great job.

I really take the pram second paragraph of the first page as Roosevelt” said hand in hand we must frankly recognize the over balance of population in our industrial centers”. It was the most interested to me when compared the other sentences. He was asking extra power to purchase the output of the Cities and also provide better use of the land. He also told the population that the government will act and prefixed the bigmiss which is going on currently; such uneconomical and equal as he said will combine all the private characters. He also promised raising values of agriculture products and that is really good management for the society.

The speech we heard/read today in class was very motivational and inspiring. I was impressed with president Roosevelt’s writing skills and the way he delivered his message to the American people in an honest and promising way. There weren’t any regrets or any hesitation in his speech. It was a thorough and well written speech that kept me focused till the very end. What also impressed me was the fact that he wrote this entire speech by himself unlike our previous president and many other presidents. He brought a nation that was divided amongst liberals and conservatives together in that very own speech. Roosevelt said, “Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” I was moved and enjoyed hearing this memorable and historical speech.

I like Hopkins Idea of reminding people about the importance of the present. People at that time overlooked at their current situation. Thinking about the present time is crucial when it comes to solving current problems. Hopkins attempt to save the nation by strengthening our infrastructure and helping the poor ones should be considered at all times.

I thought this was an interesting speech that I would like to focus on and it says “our greatest primary task is to put people to work” because the country faced many challenge problems such as great depression and wartime so the unemployment were high and nothing to do after that the government created WPA to help the Americans and put everybody to find a jobs for all city

Journal Four by Abdulwasi

A word is Born, a title for chapter five, reminds me of how most of us rush to make negative comments about a governmental job if it involves our money. In chapter five it talks about Harry Hopkins programs were seen as ineffective. They were also seen as a programs that require a lot of money, but the function of the programs were seen useless. One quote amazed me the most in chapter five and it said, " $3,187,000 Relief Is Spent Teaching Jobless to Play."

my reaction

my reaction to this speech is that the lines from the part where he talks about the good neighbor policy seem to stand out in my head. i believe i heard of it before but don't knowing where. it might have come from a religious text, like respect your neighbor and your neighbor will respect you. cause the same thing applies to what Franklin D. Rossevelt said in his inaugural speech. this policy can be represented in all levels of life from your neighbor that lives beside you to another country that borders yours, all this can be represented by what and how it was written in his speech. like the line "respects the rights of others", if you respect the right of your foreign neighbors then they can only have a reason to do the same to you.

journal four

I think the most important things in Roosevelt's speech was that he seems energized and he did not want to give up. he also seems he cared about creating jobs because the worst thing that people face is jobless. he says "our greatest primary task is to put people to work. this is no unsolvable problem if we face it wisely and courageously." All these lines tells us that is he more concerned about to put people back work swifly.

Journal Four: Inauguration Speech Response

Roosevelt speech was a very good speech, He talked a lot about quiet a lot of good things that he will be bringing to his the country. By reading his speech you can tell what kind of person he was at the time. He did had some few quotes which I thought were good and help me understand what his plan for the country at the time was. When he said, "They have no vision, and when there is no vision the people perish." By him saying that, it leads me to know that he had a vision of making things better for the people. Then at the end of his speech he talked how its the government responsibility to give back to the people and not just take from them, that to me is supporting the vision that he had, and which was to work for the benefit of the people. I also like when he talked about the U.S constitution in his speech, I think the U.S constitution is what makes this counrty the best nation in the world, by mentioning the constitution, its like he was trying to remind the people of how great this nation is, and it should always continue to be a better nation and nothing is cabable of stoping that.

journal four: Inauguration

The president had Resolvers the problem of the depuration and he could do him to spend too much money and he created many works. That was not doubled he did very well, too. He said, “It is not easy.” And he had not spent too money. He had to be care, because did when you had a big responsibility you were ware about what you had done or not and he had passed too money that was his ability.
The president had been friend his mend but they were working together, too. They were called Hopkins. And this man, they had been argued always and he had said, “I am leaving you.” When he did same thing badly too, he had liked to talk about his society. he said, "i will address them with a candor and a decision which presint situation."
his importent speach was too much very good as well as he did address his society nay many ways. he knews this soceity was greater then another and feeling, too. we had must believed him, as a great presindent.

'IN God We Trust

" In this dedication of a Nation we humbly ask the blessing of God. May He protest each and every one of us. May He guide me in the days to come".
I think that for everything we do in life we always have to have the trust of God. i believe that i may not fear anything in my life but him. that is why when we go through bad times in our life all we do is turn to god, and that is why after all Roosevelt believen in god and he wants god to lead him to the right/better place.
I liked his speech, because he finally talked about problems in the country. I loved the quote from third paragraph, "Only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment." This quote reminded me of Herbert Hoover, it seemed like he was talking about him.

Newword=Plagiarism means cheating

“Cheating is okay as long as you don’t get caught” I did not believe the statement, because does not matter, if you get caught or not still is not a right thing to do. Cheating means definition: Cheating deprive somebody of something by deceit; "The con-man beat me out of $50"; "This salesman ripped us off!"; "we were cheated by their clever-sounding scheme"; "They chiseled me out of my money" “Cheating is okay as long as you don’t get caught” this idea, I did not agree, because if you were cheated your professor’s not good for him/her many ways. So, many others students maybe they liked it. But they did not know, what will be handed, when they cheated with them selves. They had been hurting since they did cheat. The cheating was dishonesty person, or plagiarism person.

So far from what I have read I was very impressed with what Hopkins’s been doing. It’s very helpful for the mankind, and how generous he has become. But Roosevelt is also doing his thing. He has been doing well in his term of presidency, He his very out spoken. His speech has made people hear what he wanted to say because all people were starving for the help to make their society better. When Roosevelt send Hopkins’s to Europe, Hopkins has discovered and impressed by the England’s public housing and income security schemes.

“We have got to get everything we want a work program, security, wages and hours, everything now or never. Get your minds to work on developing a complete ticket to provide security for all the folks of this country up and down across the board.” Actually this quotation it seems that Hopkins was exultant in this program and he need to change in the way that American people lived and he need to create jobs for the boor people. Hopkins also promised a lot different work program that absolutely was successful not only current, but also in the future. He passé out the national security and that is one of the thing that society sports for Hopkins program that is improvement he reached. That is the interesting that I found in my reading and I would say he did good job according to the needs of the society.

journal three

I read deeply whole the chapters, but I got the most interest in chapter 4 “the work must be found” I recognized that Roosevelt took important role and organized the society in different system of lives saving. He also made national association of manufactures and the power business of market movements as he great jobs in public industries. During the great depression Roosevelt disappointed the unemployment society on the relief “it is a duty dictated by every intelligent consideration of national policy to ask you to make possible for the United States to give employments to all of these three and one-half million employable people now on relief and welfare”. He also promised for the people all the changes and the work undertaken should be useful not just for a day, or a year, but useful in sense that it affords permanent improvement in living conditions or that it greatest future new wealth for the nation.


In 1935, it was an election; there were a new congress and new house speaker and vice president all of them. They were decided a new law to saved to the society, and they had protected the government money, because some people have being a billions, some of them were died angry or some of them did have any work at all. They did think about that issues, how to saved to the people. Again, they were decided, how was everybody found a new job in everywhere. The new house speaks called Joseph W. He said the new law, “Constitution wisely provides that the chief executive shall report to the Congress on the state of the union.”(Page 160) They had thought for word and to created provide a businesses privet and public. Further more, The CWA had been too created since they had a popular to fulfills they had jobs. And they had to report to federal government. “The federal government must and shall quit this business of relief,” After the federal decided must have got a new work, the federal again, to created five billion jobless to got a work.

Journal three

In my opinion, everything so far was totally created by Harry Hopkins. Roosevelt is also important figure by giving out more money, but it is very impressive, how a social worker (Hopkins) tries to save people. A in chapter "This is our hour" Hopkins seeks every possible way, every minute to reach his goal. It seems that he can't be stoped. Roosevelt so far is very powerful with his speeches. My favorite part was on page 157, where Hopkins says that it their hour. "We've got to get everything we want - a works program, social security, wages and hours, everything- now or never." I really like his optimism!!!!!


“This is our hour”
I would like to talk about this chapter, “This is our hour” is means, the president did not work very well, because we want to see everyday a new jobs. And we did not see so much works. The president claimed, I did every well and work hard, he told the people, for example he said, “Roosevelt had told him in a note in making the assignment, in view of the steady grind you have had, I think that the sea trip will do you a lot of good,” (page 154) but the society did not believe him. And they always said, “We have got to get everything we want –a works program, social security, wages and hours, everything-now or never. Get your minds to work on developing a complete ticket to provide security for all folk of this country up and down cross the board.” This was said a Maryland, laurel (Page157)

And everybody was needed a jobs, it was bad time the CWA; there have not an enough jobs or they did have at all any jobs. They was not have a society work 1.5 billion people round states. They did not have a good work a first time, the society said again and again; “this is our hour” time to respond to got a work us. Democrats had been responded for the time being. Last options, the Roosevelt had administration, but his administration did not work with congress, he worked own mind, and his wife, too. Further more, the society said too, “the most overwhelming victory in the history of American politics.” (Page 156) the president had fells leadership and creating a jobs as well as he promised to them.

Journal three

When I read in the pages between 153-161 I found a quotation that I would like to talk about and explain more and it is on page 154 “in view of the steady grind you have had, I think that the sea trip will do you a lot of good” and this was saying that the president Roosevelt felt to send Hopkins in Europe because he did most of job in the country and knew only the situation in the USA so he can get a lot of goods and went to visit some of European countries such as Germany, Italy and England and saw different situation then the Americans will be helpfull such as public housing and income security and insurance for old ages also low income houses for the poor people
what did i think of these two chapters, i thought that they were extra work that were not needed in the book. all the first chapter of number three was about is background for the most part. and i was not interested in that. i felt that i was just more for me to remember and threw me off the track. for the fourth chapter i felt that it was a lot of repeat. like yes we know that people don't have jobs and need money. and here is money that we are going to throw at it but 9 billion dollars is a lot so, don't know if this will be the end of it or not. but like i said these chapters don't stand out and are difficult to remember. so not much of a comment other than that.
grant gorham
my quote is on page 161 secound par. starting with for the rest, he said, "it is a duty dictated by every intelligent consideration of national policyto ask you to make it possible for the U. S t give employment to all of these three and one half million employable people now on relief, pending their absorption in a rising tide of private employment. here for me atleast i got out of it is that he is telling them that the u.s. is incharge of providing jobs for everyone that will not be over in a while they will stay around and let the people have permanent living conditions or brign wealth for the nation.

Konstantin Gorodnov

The main idea in the reading, is still creating jobs for people in need and making social security work, because most of the older people had no income and government wasn't helping them at all. President Roosevelt asks Hopkins to work on creating jobs. The thing that stood out to me the most; was the way people treated President Roosevelt. They seemed to love him! And i think that he earned the respect and admiration from these people. He was really making the difference in the hard time like this. It wasn't just regular people that liked him, but mostly everyone in the government seemed to admire him. Here is an example of that :" Three-quarters of the seats were taken by Democrats. They spilled across the aisle and pushed the Republicans into an island of glum silence while they interrupted him repeatedly with applause and shouts of support. Even conservative Democrats, no fans of the New Deal, could count votes, they had absorbed the lesson, the CWA had taught them; jobs were popular."
