We put in good deal of time talking about it, to be sure, but we do It with reverse English. If you get up in meeting and denounce the WPA, for instance, as wasteful an Inefficient, you will find innumerable people agreeing with you. If you stand up and denounce the dule as an unendui- ably wasteful drain on the country's finances, you will get more cheers. But both of these wastes are side issue. The really expensive one lie in the fact of unemployment itself, in the act that millions of able, self-respecting men 'who want nothing on earth so much as a job are unable-to find one.
