“He was carrying out his national youth corps service then.  I was not positively disposed to this decision because of paucity of fund. His allowance as a youth corps member was small and what I did was to augment whatever he gave me with the proceeds from my business.

“I refused to stop my business and would go out to make hair for people after he had left home.
