Both of these were a beam of light in a time of darkness. When you go to a movie or a show its like you're in a world of magic. You get sucked into the show and leave your worries behind. And thats just what the people in the depression needed. Snow white brought people into a fairy-tale full of wonder, the dwarfs gave them some thing to laugh at, her romance gave them a reason to smile, and the conflict with the the ruthless queen gave them something to ponder. All of these things took their minds of the constant loss and sadness. Anything goes also held these aspects. Seeing the people on stage gave them reasurence that such happiness was possible in their doomsday scenario. www.google.com/images www.google.com/images http://www.hardscrabblefarm.com/swaps/images/rickj-jeep.jpg This is a jeep at the camp

As the Navajo language is extremely hard to learn without early exposure it was extremely difficult to decipher. The concept of it being used as a code language was conceived by Phillip Johnston and put into effect in 1942. Being a Navajo Code Talker required a lot of training in the language and the communicating methods. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration, or FERA, was created by the Roosvelt administration in order to fight unemployment. FERA was enacted under the new deal and provided state assistance to the unemployed and their families. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration was terminated in 1935 and its work taken over by the WPA and the Social security board. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:FERA_camp_in_Pennsylvania.jpg http://z.about.com/d/womenshistory/1/0/L/5/1934fera1.gif FERA (Federal Emergency Relief Administration) camp for unemployed Negro women, Atlanta, Georgia, 1934.

Hoover called in the army and the troops leveled the encampment, shocking Americans and making them think that Hoover was heartless. http://www.britannica.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/bonus-army.jpg http://www.alamo.edu/pac/faculty/rhines/images/bonuscapital.jpg http://www.newdeal20.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/tva.jpg http://tva.com/75th/quilt/3.jpg http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/omb/budget/fy2006/images/other-5.jpg It controlled the flood waters of the Tennessee River wich gave them electyricity and improved navigating. The TVA promissed to improve the Tennessee River, and the land around it. The TVA would also assist in the creation of a government. The TVA was one of the most acomplished in that time. President Roosevelt signed the Tennessee Valley Authority Act on May 18, 1933, creating the TVA as a Federal corporation.Tennessee Valley Authority Act, as part Roosevelt's first 100 days in office. The TVA was not perfect they had many prolemes that took time to solve. At an affordable price they brought electricity to thousands of people. The Allies were against the Axis powers in WWII.
