    Newspapers. because President Hoover was blamed for the Depression and also for not doing anything about it his

    name was attached to a few things. People living on the

    streets as they had no job and no money would cover themselves with newspapers for warmth and they were known as Hoover blankets. People gathered together in

    parks etc and built shelters out of old cardboard boxes and

    spare bits of wood. These were known as Hoovervilles. In

    Canada our Prime Minister was R. B. Bennett. People could not afford gas to they hitched up their horses to pull their

    cars. These were known as Bennett buggies.
