  1. What do you think is meant by "help its citizens"? Hand out money? Give everyone jobs? You need to clarify that first.

    Then think about Texas in the 1930s. What was it like? Was it mostly wide open spaces? Cattle ranches? Or lots of cities? Or what?

    And remember, the awful Dustbowl hit Texas, too.
