Finally — the food on the table ! This was somewhat disap-pointing. Instead of a well set table half covered by a folded cloth on which was placed a knife, some salt, bread and butter, he would now find just two "eier kichlach" (egg scones) and a covered cup of chikory coffee. This being market day there was no time for a proper washing of hands and a blessing of the food.

Most of them went to the United States, where they knew that able-bodied men willing to work could earn a fairly good living. There was a valid reason for their eagerness to leave Boiberke.
