In contrast, it estimates an avcrr age of 1,677,907 World War II veterans will be receiving pensions or compensation. And VA spokesmen estimated benefits will be going to about 3,521,004 veterans and dependents of deceased veterans. . Prcsdcnt Truman's budget requests to Congress for the VA list an average of three Union Army veterans on the pension rolls for the fiscal year ending this June 30. Actually four are still alive, r-vrJIng to VA records. They are: ijouglas T. Story, 107, West Los Angers, Calif.; Israel A. Broadsword, 105, Samuels, Idaho; Albert Woolson, 104, Duluth, Minn.; and James A. Hard HO, Rochester, N. Y. These four veterans are receiving pensions this year at an annual rale of $1,410. Next year's budget includes only $1,440 for one. In 1950-51 there were 10 union veterans on the pension list getting $1,418 a year each. The federal government does not pay pensions or compensation to Confederate veterans of the Civil War and does not keep a list of those surviving.

Hill. -· Berlin-(/P)-Wicked o l d Wall ' Street is plotting against Little lied Riding Hood. That's the way tl -· Communists- see it. Soviet East Berlin has re-written the old fairy tales, has rewritten almost the entire repertoire of the stage to suit the Kremlin. The theater in the cast must have a "message." The theater for children in the Russian sector of Berlin is an example. It is winding up its first year, devoted to teaching youngsters to look behind the grease paint for the "truth" about Jifc. The theater staged Little Red Ridinc Hood pretty much as it appears in the fairy tale. But a commentator carefully explained to the children at the outset that the wolf represents "Wall Street" and ·"imperialism," about to gobble up the "worker." The friendly hunter who comes along just in time to destroy the wolf ii Stalin, of course. Prizes For Actors The Communist idea of thcaler docs not permit the "star" system, in public. But the better actors are rewarded from time to time with "national prizes," so the effect is the same. Actors' unions are encouraged, as long as they toe the line. The stage manager is on the spot at all times. The German Communists keep an eye on the way the Russians do things and as soon as the German stage differs, they cry "formalism" or some such double talk, and the stage manager is due for a lambasting. In Marx-Lenin-Stalin talk the theater men must guard aKainst formalism and deal with "realism," but the German is too much of a Johnny-come-latcly to know what formalism really \s. So he just worries along and hopes he is imitating the Russians. Egmont, for instance, may not just wander around the stage as Beethoven intended. He'- got to be 'an Ideological fighter." The same HAPPY BIRTHDAY It was a pleasure to handle the transaction between gentlemen like you and Mr. Marshall in the sale and purchase of the handsome brick building that's the new home of the JOHNSON PLUMBING HEATING CO. \ Your wonderful growth has been the result of a friendly and well rendered service.

The audience sometimes ruins jll the v/cll-lald plans of the ideologists. Too often, the German Ihcatcr-Kocrs break into applause just at a point when the tyrant is getting hit bumps.
