Notes


Samuel was the keeper of the Bass family bible which was destroyed in a fire. The single most important thing to him in that house was the bible. He tried desperately to save it when the house caught on fire. The flames were too great and he could not get to it. He sat out in the front yard watching the house burn and wept over the loss of the family bible.


Samuel was a business man making most of his money in the pulp wood business. He had four logging trucks buying timber all around the area of Campti. They would cut the trees close to the ground, remove the limbs, load them on the trucks and take them to the railroad where they were transported to Spring Hill where the paper mill was located. The trees had to be at least 4 inches at the base and 2 inches at the top in order to be processed by the machines at the paper mill. During the war it was very difficult to get parts to maintain the trucks but somehow he managed to keep them running sometimes traveling great distances to get the parts.


Sam tried many different businesses to make a living including truck farming, cotton, and even raising chickens. All were unsuccessful as the market fell just about the time he had a product to sell. The truck farm was on land inherited by his wife Buena near Campti. They lost the land when his crop did not bring enough money to pay the notes. He experimented with cotton farming and divided his crop into two parts. One part he fed fertilizer while the other did not. A photograph taken in 1924 shows him standing in the cotton field, the fertilized cotton on the left is much healthier and produced more cotton than the unfertilized crop on the right.


Sam liked to live high. He loved nice clothes and nice shoes buying only the finest when he had the money. He bought all the women, his wife and daughters, fur coats while shopping in Shreveport. He built a fine two story house on several acres in Campti and had a cafe, filling station and motel court. James took over the lumber business and Bubba took the filling station when Sam got sick.


Once James told us his dad's occasional rebellion around Christmas time when he would slip off and have a drink. They had quite a puritan household, but they used to sell beer at the cafe, Mrs. Bass would not serve, but would take the order.


Sam liked politics......and Long was his favorite. He had a lot of relatives in Winnfield where Huey P. Long is from. He was sheriff of Campti several times, and mayor once. Mama said, a big fish in a little pond. Sam had many powerful friends in Washington DC as well as Louisiana. Once James wrote home while in the service about blacks being moved into the barracks with the desegregation act. His dad went into orbit calling his friends and raising cain. The next day, they moved the blacks out of the barracks. The base commander called James in and said, "If there is something here you don't like, come tell me. Please don't write home about it."


He was a large man, like his son Bubba. He died of cancer of the pancreas in 1951. Cancer came on him quite suddenly and in a few months he was gone. James stayed with his father during this time. He described him as turning yellow, and hoped no one would send any yellow flowers.
