We waited until they jumped into the irrigation ditches, di- verted the surface water to a pit, scooped them in it and burned them. I also remem- ber saving up money to go to the movies, which cost 25 cents." BORN IN PINE VALLEY - All four of the children in the above pictures were born in Pine Valley.
