I Mrs. John Clyde, reading the article in the papper, asked Mrs. Palmer for the letter and then forwarded it to a friend of hers | who can read Finnish.

Townsend club members call it an annuity, not a pension. An annuity brings up the idc;i of insurance, and it is precisely the idea or principle of insurance that is back of the Townsend Plan. Tliis type of protection, as a right of citizenship, would even make Old Glory have a greater meaning. The Townsend organi/alion proposes a new tax lo take the place of so many of our tax burdens. A gross income t;.x of 3 percent on all cash incomes, both individual and corporate. There is one exception: namely the first one hundred dollars per month ($1,200.00) per year) of any income which will be exempt from this tax. Tin' tax is to be collected monthly by the Federal government and appropriated to pay the annuities equally per capita to all qualified annuitants. The use of money is all the advantage there is in having money. Why not protect each other by means of a National Insurance Plan?—Adv. It's Here!

But I have had the pleasure of delivering these gifts to the needy in this remote countryside where I am a country school teacher and a member of the local Finnish Red Cross. "I wish you could see the happiness that these gifts have brought to many, many destitute families, and how utterly grateful they are to the kind donors. "I cannot find enough words to express our appreciation to you and the thousands of others who have extended their help to my countrymen in their dire need. God Bless You.
