The incident wasn't at all unusual for Sala, who Is a very un- usal magistrate.

"It Is enough, to restore anyone's faith In humanity. "Often women as well ns men offer their blood. Once a G3-yenr-old woman volunteered, but- I had to turn her down."

The 55-yenr-oItl train, mntle up of a lococotive inmed "Dunrcbin" and two luxuriously-appointed coaches, was owned by the Duke of Sutherland. The ducal train formerly ran on privately-owned line through Sutherland County in Scotland from Golspic to Hnlmsdsile. There was a private station near Dunrohin Cns- t-le, the Duke's estate. The rail line was built by tte third Duke of Sutherland In 1871. but he sold it to the Highland railway in IBM. However, he retained the private trai and rnn it on the Wshland company's line's between Dunrobin unc Inverness. Nationalization of the railroad about, three yeans ner) ended tna arrangement.. The Duke sold hi train last year to a firm of eoach- bliilders who plan to exhibit it fit New Romney. Kent. The "Dunrnbin' p-'llod into Ibr yards there rccenfl after the longest run of its career. And on the cost, of national de- 'ense it said: 'Our military budget •system, has broken down. Congress allocates billions with out accurate knowledge ns to why they are nec- ?jy»2ry or what they are going to be used for." Moreover, something happens to money before it is spent. That is Inflation, which causes price-s to rise and the cast of government to incrense at.'l makes more work for :.he Gremlins. The deficit in which Uncle Sam is fit and ing will presently be translated into more national debt, which will increase taxation a^in and mnike living with the ^Gremlins more desperate. The debt behind Uncle Sam represents pas.t inflation. Inflation, remember, is Itself taxation, only j that iastead of taking all of it out of your current Income it taxes part of it out of your savings. The dollar you saved 10 year.: ago now Ls worth 60 cents when you go to ] spend it. Therefore, the Gremlins \ work not only as you have seen ! them here, but in your safety deposit | box while you sleep. ! What keeps Uncle Sam's pockets j empty? i Answer: Seventeen million peo- .
