I watehed you on television the other night while waiting to see the World Series, and your message really got to me. Ever since I heard you tell us that the best way to fight inflation was not to spend money and not to waste anything. I've been trying to follow your advice with very questionable results. For example, the next morning I went down the supermarket and bought some soup bones. I made the mistake of telling tin- butcher 1 wasn't going to buy any steak until the price came down. Worst Year That evening I received a visit from two members of the cattlemen's association who said they had heard about what I said in the supermarket, and they wanted me to know that they were having the worst year in their histroy and if I didn't care about BUCHWALD the food industry in this country, they wouldn't care about me. 1 explained to them that you had said the only way to fight inflation was to live within my budget and you know what they did? They shot two steers in the head on my front lawn. It cost me SSl'l.iiO to have the carcasses carted away. The next day I had a call from an automobile dealer who told me the new models had just arrived at the showroom and advised me to come down right away. I told him that, be- cause of your plea in Kansas City, I decided to forego the luxury of a 1975 ear until the economy was straightened out. An hour later three officers of the United Auto Workers union broke into my office and asked me what I thought I was doing. I told them the car I owned was perfectly .satisfactory and I really didn't need a new car. Well, you should have heard what they said, Mr. President. "They accused me of creating unemployment in the most important industry in America and shouted that if everyone thought the way I did we would have the greatest depression in the history of the country. I tried to calm them duwii by pointing out that everyone in this country had to bite bullet but they were so infuriated, they threw a chair though my window, which cost me to replace Laid Off Well. I got home that night and had a from Hirliard Kaltenborn who works in a children's clothing store KHInrd had just been laid off from the store becnase'lio one was buy- ing elolhing. The reasons he came to see me is thai he was strapped for cash and asked if I could loan him SUN) I li.ni bill to loan him the money since we hadn't bought rhildren's clothing ourselves, and I felt responsible for Richard's unem- ployment. Of course, we're not going to Christmas, as that is really throwing money down the drain Somehow the newspaper 1 work for found out about it and 1 got a call from the advertising department. The man said if we're not going to buy anything for Chrislnias Iliov're not going to get advertising and they won't able pax nie for the column. I'll be very frank with you. Mr. President could me in a class with my friend Kaltcnboni But this is neither here nor there. What Pin ,eally ing to you about is. could I please have my WI.N lu over my house, because 1 want oven body to know u is to fight inflation
