If any sane iic-rson believes that reducing national income to depression levels is Ihn panacea for our ills, ne is indeed in a sad -state. "We remember when prices wore so low that we could not afford lo buy. Come to think of it, we never remember a time when we didn't complain nlioul the lilgli cost of livinc.
