Are the richest kiddies the happiest
in the land or are the happiest babies
the richest in the land?
The millionaire mother who raises
her little son like a crown prince and

need a maid to put him to bed and
ptay with him because he Jwows the
bogey man can't get him while mam
ma is near.
Rag dolls, mud pies and often
times even mamma is denied the

rich babies are not the happiest ba
