Those plans led to the depression that people finally recognized in 1929." Proehl doesn't plan to do much campaigning, particularly around his little rural store a dozen miles north oi Seattle. '•Those people around here are all Democrats or Republicans, and if I start talking my politics in the store they'd shoot me."
