It was while I was working for the North Carolina Pulp Company that I first paid any income tax. At that time, if a person earned as much as $3,000.00 in one year they were required to pay a tax. It must have been in 1939 that I went over the $3,000.00 mark. I remember distinctly that I felt pretty proud of myself that I had earned that much money in one year. It took a lot of overtime to get that much at ninety cents an hour, however I can remember one week that I drew pay for 132 hours and there are only 168 hours in an entire week.
