I finished the third grade in the spring of 1930. I will back tract a little to say my brother Robert Lindberg Mashburn was born at Bell Memorial Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas on August 17th 1927. I had lost a baby brother in 1925, he was a premature 6 months baby, Daddy tried to feed him with an eyedropper,he couldn't swallow, he was well formed, but too little. He was named Eugene.

I finished all my schooling in Springfield. In 1932 on September 11. I accepted Christ and was baptized that night. I have always considered that the important day in my life.
