C6 FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1997 REMEMBERING FDR THE SALINA JOURNAL Roosevelt's legacy seen in people across nation Many Americans' lives were shaped by FDR's New Deal-era policies By DONALD M. ROTHBERG The Associated Press ADRIAN. Mich. — Moving slowly about his living room, his knees stiffened by arthritis, Morris Pentland is a living reminder of Franklin D. Roosevelt's legacy. "Done a lot of hard work," he says, recalling his Depression years in a Civilian Conservation Corps camp. On one granite wall of the monument that Washington will dedicate today to the man who served as president through the Great Depression and World War II are these words of Roosevelt's: "I propose to create a Civilian Conservation Corps to be used in simple work." Pentland's is a life shaped by those words. "I think it's one of the most wonderful things that's ever happened," he said. "It sure did help a lot of guys." Roosevelt's legacy is as strong here as anywhere across America. It exists at Hayes State Park, largely built by Pentland's CCC unit, in the old gymnasium at Adrian College and in the airport "/ think that that was one of the greatest of FDR's legacies: to show what the government can do." Vernon Newton director of FDR Library and Museum in Hyde Park, N.Y. and the home for the aged. Not long ago, it was easy to find the letters "WPA" embedded in the concrete of sidewalks installed here by workers from the Works Progress Administration. Beyond the wood, brick and pavement, Roosevelt's legacy also lives in the blood and bone of human experience, in how people remember their lives during the Depression. "We didn't have Social Security," recalls Senna Larson. "Our parents were very poor. I'm second-oldest in a family of 14. We had a lot of children. I remember that my father, who was a farmer, he ended up having to be on the WPA for a while digging ditches and my brothers went to the CCC." Passage of the Social Security Act of 1935 changed that. "It freed the younger members of the family to go anyplace they wanted to to work," Larson said. "They didn't have to have that immediate responsibility for their parents." As director of the county historical society, Charles Lindquist can list many of the New Deal projects around Adrian — the hospital addition that later became the Stevenson Home for the Aged, the college gymnasium, and Hayes State Park. "No one realizes these are Depression-era projects," he said. "People don't much like the government around here. So they don't mind forgetting or covering up the fact that we have a lot of New Deal-era buildings." As in Adrian, FDR's legacy is evident in landmarks across the nation. "People probably drive by, use, see landmarks throughout this country every day and have no awareness that these were built by the government," said Vernon Newton, director of the FDR Library and Museum in Hyde Park, N.Y. "You see the notion today that government can't do any good. ... But I think that that was one of the greatest of FDR's legacies: to show what the government can do."
