"The government Job Corps Center Program opened up, and I join[ed] the Breckinridge Job Corps Center at Morganfield, Kentucky. There later on I did artwork, photography, interviews, and sometimes was a paste-up artist for the camp paper, which came out once a week. It was called the Breckinridge Bugle. We all who worked with the paper did have press cards of which we could get into certain shows or games with that card to do a story on such for the camp paper. I also did write short science fantasy stories for the paper there. And I did have a regular comic strip that appeared on the back page of the paper every week it came out, called “J.C. of the Job Corps,” about adventures of certain teenagers in the Job Corps." —Charles Williams
