It was Fred Reinbold. During the darkest days of that great depression, Fred was the local manager of an oil company in Davenport. Ed Kruger, Lynn Gunning and myself ran out of money at about the same time. We had every reason to walk off our farms, and join the soup lines, but that sounded distasteful to us, so we learned to live from one crises to the next. The final blow came when no gasoline get to our farms unless it was paid for. Without fossil fuel, we could not produce wheat that nobody wanted.  Fred Reinbold called up on a Monday morning, stating he was bringing his boss out to try and convince him we were farmers that some day would pay for stuff like gasoline and oil. I was topless when I approached the oil executive’s car. Fred’s boss looked me over, and asked, ‘Did you have to hock your shirt to keep alive?’  Upon leaving, I remember Fred saying to his boss, ‘All Walt needs is a little more gas till fall.’  After the empty report I gave Fred, and his boss, they drove over to Ed Kruger’s farm, then back to Lynn Gunning’s place for more monetary evaluations. Little did we know at that time that Fred’s boss turned thumbs down on extending more gasoline credit to us. Before any gas was allowed to leave in our direction, Fred had to sign a note.  By so doing, he put his own pay check on the line as security for three helpless farmers…” (excerpt of ‘Reinbold Aids Farmers’ in Kikbacks by Walt Kik, in Davenport Times: 1-19-1984)  “Fred W Reinbold, Groom, of Lincoln Co, and Bessie Hickman, Bride, of Spokane Co.
