A and Mrs. Mr. and LOOKING at LIFE By Erich Brandeis Do please sympathize with me today. I am suffering agonies. No one has ever suffered as as I do. The suffering of the wounded and dying American in Korea, of the starving millions of India, the innocent thousands and thousands in Russian forced-labor camps, is compared with my suffering. FOR I HAVE BEEN HIT OVER THE HEAD A DOLLAR BILL! Hundreds of men and women I know are suffering just as intense* ly as I do. Thousands all over the land are In terrific pains. They have told mo They have written me. I have seen them suffer. ( You see thin horrible suffering all around you. Many of you must be in just as much pain a* I am. Because hundreds of YOU have written and told me how awful conditions conditions are here In America, how this country Is going 1 to the dogs-how dogs-how YOU are suffering. You. too* have been hit over the head with dollar bills--and oh, how that hurts! Sometimes Z get disgusted with the way we deplore our terrible fate. How the price of steak is going up. How it Is almost impossible to have butter on our bread, sugar In our coffee, a televlalofi set, a new automobile. Every day they are hitting us over the head with dollar bills. Every day we are suffering more and more. Did you read in your paper that t h e Communist government in China Is planning to murder 150 million of its citizens because it is impossible to feed them and be- cnuse hunger causes rebellion? I don't know whether the report Is t r u e -- h u t I personally believe it. Did you rend how little the once ao p t o u d English people have to live on thewe days? Do you know that the average Spaniard has to work two full days to afford to buy a doxe.n eggs? Do you, by any chance, remember our own story of Valley Forge? Our present "deplorable" way of living would be considered an undreamed undreamed of luxury by nine-tenths of thr population of this earth. -' What we have left after paying all our taxes and assessments would be deemed a fortune by that same ninc*tenths.

Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Haas and ·on Tommy, have returned from a month vacation In Florida. throw Into our garbage cans would be Lucullan banquets for millions. with us Is that we a nation of spoiled The trouble have become brats! What do we know about the ravages of war? What do we know about living under the tyranny of dictators, about subsisting on offal, about staying awake nights In dreadful fear of Invaders, and thr still more dreadful fear of tomorrow? Thousands of our boys are being killed and maimed again to save at home from losing all the things that alone are worth the living. Yet we have tho colossal nerve to complain because we havo been hit over the head with dollar bills. And when I say "we" I regret have to include myself. All for Baby 5175 By MRS.
