Sitiry of Peter Liebnunu Who Iftti-kcd for WPA livery.oiice iii ;i while ;t news story makbs sill ilie jokc.s ;ni<i Im^gling over 'work relief seem only mean and cruel. Such a story is thai of 1'clcr Uebnutn. Pctei 1 Liebninn left Hungary Lo tome to Ihia United Stales in ISO!), when he wits 30 years, old. As luuiiil, lime.s were hard in Hiirigary and the threat of war hung close over all Europe. So Peter ciirhc lo America. His wife , sluycd in Hnhyiiry. Peter got a job in Clevclaiul. lie tool; out his first cilizi'nsliij) papers. Then he sent Tor his wife, Kiithcrinc.' ? Things went well for the Licbmans. | : Peter neglected to get his second citizenship papers—but no ono .sitkl any- thing about it, and Peter didn't think it- was awfully important. Then ' came the depression. Money - wit.s ban) lo get—even linnlcr than back in jhiiigiiry in 1009. Peter lost his job. 'Mien just as his savings were about gone lie got another job—with WPA. The pay wiisn'l much but Knlh- .-erine Liebiiiah h.-id learned in her 57 years* how to make the pcniiie.s go far. ; Early this year ail order went through that only American citizens Would be kept on the WPA rolls. So Peter Liebrmin, never having obtained his .second citizenship papers, was out of work ngriiii. He r didn't. tell his wife,about it. Instead' lie got; iip at'Uie'u^uaj; hour llie'y following: .morning nn'd speiiT'iiie day looking: for work. There .was no work for 59-year-phl Pcler Ijcbmaii. He 'kept on looking, though, inventing lit- tle'stories each night to. tell his wife about the day's work on liie \VPA project. When pay day came ho pretended 16 be sick and stayed at home. He didn't know how to explain nol bringing homo his pay the following day, but. Katherine didn't ask questions. Meanwhile Peter applied again for citizenship papers—but these were held up because government routine delayed certification of his entry into the United States. When the second pay day came, Peler ( kncw his play acting must end. He had been living ;l lie—to save Im wife worry, but a lie just, the same. He felt licked. He went into the bathroom and took six poison tablets. And what did Peter Licbman say to hLs wiie.Kalheriiic when S | IC canio (« him in the Hospital? He said, "It was the lirst linic I lied lo you." ' .WPA officials say Peter will be aMc to go back to work when lie. is well again—providing they are notified of the certification of his entry into the wintry. There arc several morals to (his .story. One i.s that Peler Licliman should haw gone through Hie notes- sary forms of becoming an American cilixen when he first came here. Aitolhcr is that he shouldn't huvo attempted suicide. And still another is that there are really sincere, hardworking people in this America—like Peter Uobman— wiio prefer death to begging or asking charity. These people need and dcscnv help.

Burning them gels the junk oft 1 the street ami out of auto yards.

Not only do these ancient rattletraps menace life as long as they re'"»'" m use, but they usually prove a costly investment, to their owners The average car which has been in use many years requires constant expenditure if it is .kept in running condition and the owner is far better off without it.

And when the beautiful American nag stood last through the night a mild and lovable young lawyer from Georgetown (ho was a prisoner looking »n, and liis name was Francis Scott Key) took an envelope from his poekel and wrote a poem called "The Star-Spangled Banner," which he happily s el to a London coffee-house limo. And so, even in this beautiful blood-soaked anthem that celebrates their struggle, England and America were irrevocably joined. J)ICK went home by slagc coach in November. And around the New Year when the Irenly ot Ghent was already signed, old Andrew Jacks cm defended New Or- ieans in a useless, bloody bailie. When it was over, gallant Sir Edward Packcnham and the flower of the English army lay dead Ihere. To Polly, this was utterly hearl- jrcaking. She wept for days because of it, and because of American men who lay dead at sea, 3'ust as cruelly. She thought of, her Jerry as among them.', And then one day there appeared a strange brig in Lyine harbor. Trepid Chelsey came home with, (he news ihal a linc.ijis vessel named Ihe May Queen was casing anchor there. It meanl nothing to anybody. Not until Jerry Whiltield came striding, through (he pickcl gale, looking browner and leaner and tireder and older, and said with his cap in his hand: ."Does Capt, Trfpid Chelsey live -we?' ... Nol (ill then did the May Queen's arrival have meaning. Polly went Hying f rom i) lc house into his arms; and though "lie of his arms was stiff frciii wound, he held her crushing close. And when she ericd salty tears on his fact, Ms own mingled with Ihem, unashamed. "I've a ship of my own, Polly," he said. 1 m a man of properly now." ': "Oh!" Po'lly said. "Is Ihc May ; Queen your own? . . . Well, I've a contribulion loo. Your baby son] is a year and eight monlhs old. : His name is liichard Jeremiah, -omc in and sec him—" She thought for a moment that. Jerry WhilficJd was fainting, and after that she thought his expression of dismay was very comical. "Before night falls," she sur- insed him yet further by saying, 'I want you to take me on your'-, arm to our ship, walking very slowly past Mrs. Pell's house." . , ing Jerry Whltfields have sellled in Polly's old home al -yme, for Dick Chelsey has gone o medical college down at New Haven, and old.
