It showed a picture of a new-born babe and was accom panied by a caption reading something like this: “He owes L’ncle Sam $762!” The amount was figured by dividing our national debt by our population ,and showed that every man, woman and even new-born child in the United States had a con siderable stake in the government debt. But that baby bom in 1940 or 1941 wai a piker at carrying debt loads compared with the baby born in 1946. For with the national debt now hovering around the 300 billion figure, each child bom today owes $2,140. And the chances are, unless government expenditures are cut a lot more rapidly than it ap pears they will be, that he, rather than his father’s generation, will have to pay that debt off. The thing that stands out in the government’s financial report is that we haven’t started to pay for the war we just finished. We’ve all bought bonds, but they just increased the debt. MILLIONS IN RAGS It is probably impossible for most of us to realize the destitute condition of hundreds of millions of people in war-torn countries. But it helps us to under stand the scope of worldwide suffering when we see the pictures and read the facts being broadcast throughout the country by the Victory’ Clothing Collection workers. Along with the pictures of children and adults fighting to survive through the winter in rags, in bare feet, and huddled around street-corner bonfires they give us figures showing that in China alone there are 200,000,000 people who are in desperate need of clothing. Add to that millions of improperly clad peo ple in Europe, and you have a probable total of more than twice the population of the United States. We can’t supply enough clothes to fill all of their needs. We w’ould have to turn over all of the clothing all of us own in order to clothe such a multitude properly. But if we only contribute the garments we consider too shabby to wear—the clothes w hich have hung around the houiie unused throughout the winter—it can lessen the suffering of some unfortunate. Some w’ill go further than others in their contribu tions, but no American family should let this drive go by without at least giving some pieces of clothing to those w'ho are still paying heavily for a war in which we were equally involved. ★ ; ★ Meeting Schedule Clubs and Groups WOMANS CLUB—2nd and 4th Thursdays. 2:IS p. m.
