    Notes 
    • "I stayed for 2 yrs. with my Grandma and Grandpa Leubecher after my Mother died and then I went back with Dad. Aunt Kate wanted me the worst way. They never had any children. They were in Washington. Married after Mother died. They moved to the state of Washington. A year or so after Mother was killed, they wanted to adopt me in the worst way. Dad told me that they could have me. I remember that she borrowed money so that she could make a trip home to come and get me. After they got there my Dad wouldn't let me go. She was going to see me through school, music lessons, and everything. My life would have probably been really different.

      "I was still 5 miles further west from Cliff's place and then I was 9 when we moved to Cliff's place. You know the housekeeper took the summers off so it was Dad and I who did the cooking and stuff. Dad tought me how to bake bread and stuff. I remember we had thrashers one time when I was 10-11 and I was going to fix corn and I had to run up to the neighbors to find out how to fix it. We got so that we were pretty good cooks. Except for the time when we tried to make our first pie. Dad always liked raisin pie. Neither of us had made pie before. We found a recipe how to make the crust. We got that. Dad said that probably it was like bread--the more you kneaded it the better it was. Well, with pie crust, just the opposite is true. So we did a good job of kneading it. We couldn't find a recipe for how to fix the raisins so we just dumped the raisins and a little sugar and put the top on. When it baked we could hardly get the knife through the crust and it took a hammer to break the crust and the raisins flew like buckshot. There had been no moisture in the pie and the raisins got hard. When Dad told the story he reverted to half English and half German with a few very good descriptive adjectives.

      "We went to country school there which was a mile away. Cliff and I. We went to country school there, graduated from eighth grade. I wanted to go to high school so bad but Dad said that Elsie was going to business college and he was sending her some money so he couldn't afford it. So for two years I went back to school in the wintertime and helped the teacher with the first grade kids. Then when I was 15 I wanted to go to high school and I was at Grandma's just before school started and Helen said "Well, why don't you start? Maybe after you start your Dad will let you go?" At that time we had to pay all of the tuition. She worked at the bank, Granma lived out there where Lincoln school was. We used to walk back and forth. I was in school for two weeks before I went out to tell Dad about it. And he said, "Well , since you started we'll see about the first year." I worked for my room and board so there weren't many expenses. I worked for the couple that had the hardware store downtown. They had a little boy about a year old and I worked there all winter for my room and board. Sometimes, if they didn't need me at night I used to babysit to supplement my income for spending money. They lived on West 10th street when I first started staying with them and then they moved to 18th and Dakota. Their names were Hansen. It was Hansen Hardware. They were awfully nice people to be with. For my clothes, Helen always had beautiful clothes working there at the bank and of course she took a big size. She gave me a lot of her clothes and I was taking sewing in high school so I used to make them over for myself. That was the way I got my clothes through school. And Helen helped me a lot through school. Helen had a room in town and she came out to the farm over the weekend using Grandpa's horse and buggy. Grandpa would come in and get her.

      "Telephones were already established in the country. When the lightning struck, Dad first called Granma and at first they weren't going to answer since you know that you are not supposed to talk on the telephone when it's lightning and it was a very electrical storm. Finally Herman answered it. All that Dad said was "Ida's been struck by lightning." She said, we got a lantern and we walked over there in the pouring rain."

      "When we lived out there in this farm 17 miles out and when they went to town you went with horses and you went early in the morning and you didn't get home until late at night. We had a hired man that was there for years. We used to, it was dark you know, and I remember one time the hired man wasn't there, and the barn was about a block away from the house and down the hill, so we did chores about three o"clock in the afternoon and got the potatoes and stuff out of the basement so that we didn't have to go out in the dark. We were so scared of lightning for years and years whenever there was a lightning storm Dad used to hang quilts over the doors and windows so we couldn't see anything. After we were married you were still frightened of storms."--Interview with George and Hazel Lowell, August 1984

      "In the first year when I went to high school, come the second year, Dad said they just couldn't afford it and I wasn't going to be able to go. A week before school started I got a letter from the principal of school saying that the law had changed and that now the county had to pay the tuition of anybody in the county who went to high school. I can remember taking that letter out to Dad somewhere in the field yelling "I'm going, I'm going!" Nothing was going to stop me then because I could work my way through.

      "When I finished high school at that time they had a two year normal course in high school and you could teach country school with a "second class" certificate. It was the lowest certificate that you could get for teaching country school. I taught out there 18 miles west of Sioux Falls. They had a county superintendent and she would know the vacancies and she would know where they had vacancies. I had 32 kids in all eight grades. This was by Pumpkin Center west of town. I had a fun school. There were 2-3 girls and all the rest were boys. Of course, I was grown up with Cliff and I so we did everything--baseball, horseshoe and stuff. I never had dolls and stuff like that. We had a lot of fun with the boys. We had a football team and a baseball team. We originated country school teams playing other country school teams. It was just a fun thing.

      "I had in March when you moved from one farm to another (this was the customary time for farmers to move) the superintendent was out visiting one day telling me that there was this German family moving into our district and I would have two German boys one 15 and one 16 and that they were trouble makers. They had trouble in every school they were in. I was pretty strong but anyhow these boys were in the 5th grade and treated like juveniles when they were adults. One of them was almost as tall of I was. I put them in the back of the school where they belonged for their size. One of them could draw--he was very artistic. I used this to bring up his ego. He used to do a lot of drawing and helped with the drawing lessons. I thought that the first week after they lived there we got into a little trouble. He got up and was going to go out and I sat him down in his seat so hard it shook his teeth. He stayed there anyhow. So I decided that I better go home that night and find out what his parents were like. So after school I walked about a quarter of a mile and came to the door and his mother came to the door and got all excited that the schoolteacher was there--she started hollering for her husbannd in German "Come quick, come quick, the teacher's here" I spoke German to her and told her that her husband didn't have to come if he was busy. She hollered back to her husband that the teacher could speak German. We had a good long talk and conversation and found out that I could talk German, holy cow, they would have given me the farm. They had been shunned around from one place to another and ignored. When I left, the Dad said, "You just tell me if those boys don't behave themselves, you tell me and I'll take care of them." The superintendent came one day to visit with me and see how I was getting along with these boys I said that everything was fine and that I couldn't understand what the problem was.

      "I had one little boy, he'd come to school in the morning and give me intimate details about home life and I said that I didn't think his mom and dad would be wanting him to be telling me all of these stories. He was a regular little gossiper the way he was. He was in the third grade.

      "I enjoyed teaching country school.

      "I taught for two years and then went back to Augustana for a year and got a better certificate. I got a first class certificate.

      "The first year I taught I got $90 a month; the second year I got the highest raise of anybody in the county. A $30 a month raise. Some of the teachers were disgusted with my salary. I got married then this second year and then went back to college and after that taught for two years near where the poor farm was, about a half a mile north of there. We lived in West Sioux at the time and I drove back and forth. Grandpa Miller stayed with us that one winter when it was a lot of snow and he used to take me out and come back and get me.

      "Our first car was when I was about 9 yrs. old when Dad bought his first car. I can remember my dad's first car. It was a Jackson, 2 cylinder with the motor sitting crossways under the front seat and the crank on the side. The first time he came home with it when he brought it home he had a granary with a driveway through the middle of it and doors on each end of it. He came up in there and had forgotten how to stop it and was hollering "Whoa!" A load of grain was right ahead of him and he hit it and pitched it right out in front of him through the other door.

      "Our dad used to, when the circus would come to town, that's when we used to live where Cliff lived, we would start out in the morning to go to the circus. Of course, we saw all these things going on in the circus--these guys jumping down on a board and throwing the other one up in the air and stuff. We had to try that. And of course, all of the wild ideas that Cliff got, he always tried them out on me first. And if I survived, we'd do it again. He had a rock on the end of the plank and I was suppose to get on a wagon and jump off the end onto this plank to see how far up in the air the rock would go. The rock went up in the air just far enough to land on me. It was a while before I came to and had a lump on my head. We didn't try that again.

      "When we were both living with Grandma and Aunt Kate was home yet and cleaning house. They had one of these wardrobes and they had a loaded revolver that they always kept up there. They were cleaning house and they put it on the buffet and told us kids not to touch it. Of course, that was all Cliff needed, and so she was busy working in there, and Cliff sat me on a chair and was going to shoot me. Just playing. He aims that at me and shoots it. The bullet just grazed the top of my head. Did we catch it! We both got such a spanking. We were ornery kids.

      "We got to be too much for Grandma so they had to separate us. I remember one time Cliff got mad and crawled under the table when she was after him. They had the table set for company and had a hold of the end of the tablecloth and jerked the end of the tablecloth and pulled everything off the table.

      "My dad never knew about anything like this or we would have gotten tanned. We never told on one another. We were a year and nine months apart. It was always us against the world. Cliff used to say that Elsie had it easy but that Cliff and Hazel were against the world. It didn't seem to hurt us any.

      "When we were split, [Grandma has us about a year] Cliff went to Humboldt with my Dad and I continued to stay with Grandma.

      "When he went back to farm we both went back with him.

      "One time when they had to go to town they would leave early in the morning. They had the hired man who wasn't there that day. Cliff and I were alone. There was some commotion in the grove south of the house. You know, there were lots of gypsies at that time. The gypsies were down in there and Cliff and I thought that if we took the shotgun of Dad's and shot it in the air we would be able to scare them away. So he gets the shotgun out and shots it in the air and the thing recoiled and knocked him flat. We decided that it wasn't worth it after that."

      On 8-15-?, Hazel Lowell told the following to GRL regarding her schooling and early teaching career: Country school covered the first 8 grades and was free. To continue to high school, the country kids had to go into Sioux Falls and pay tuition. Grandma's father told Grandma that he wasn't going to pay tuition for her for high school. During the summer, Grandma was with her Aunt Helen and her Grandma Leubecher's family. High school at Sioux Falls was going to start soon. Aunt Helen told her just to start school while Grandma was visiting them and that after she started to then tell her Dad and that he would probably let her continue and pay the tuition. Grandma did this. She walked the 2 miles into town and back each day so she could go to school. Two weeks later, she told her dad and he let her continue, telling her she could go the one year. Following the first year, a law was passed stating that the school boards were responsible for paying for the country school's kids' tuition. Grandma remembers receiving a letter telling her that the law had changed, etc., and running out into the fields were her father was farming, yelling, "I'm going, I'm going!"

      Following graduation from high school, Grandma taught country school for two years. She had 32 students from Grades 1-8, in a one-roomer near Wall Lake. Another teacher friend helped her arrange her daily lesson time schedules and class curriculum. Grandma lost 14 lbs. in her first two weeks of teaching. She then attended Augustana College and returned to teaching following that and received the highest pay raise the county gave--her salary went from $90 to $110 a month.

      While driving, Grandma noticed billowy white clouds against a blue sky. She said that it reminded her of when she was little after her mother died when Grandma was 4. She and Cliff would lay out in the wagon beds and look up into the sky. When they would see little pockets of blue sky in the midst of the white clouds, they would wait for their mother's face to appear because they had been told that their mother had gone to heaven.

      At the time of the 1910 census, lived with grandparents (Leubechers) in Springdale Township, Lincoln County, South Dakota.

      Comment by Gerald Lowell: In a standard questionnaire generated by Reunion, the software package I was using for genealogy, in the space provided for “Other Spouses”, Grandma Lowell wrote: “No, I have the Best!”
