An intervieiv with American bum9 A commentary By RUSSELL BAKER New York Times Service WASHINGTON This is Phil Chivy, America, and as a public service lo tile nation in this vital presidential election cam- paign, this ncisecasler will periodically present Interviews with the indispensable men who make government and politics in America the great farce we have nil learned to love to sneer at. Today's guest: A man without whom scarcely a politician in America would be able to in- flame and embitter us all. How do you do, sir. It's a pleasure to have you with us today. Would you identify yourself for the millions who have lo work hard and pay taxes so they can enjoy the pleasure of having you, Sir, to hate? ANSWER: Yes, of course. Delighted to, Phil, bum on welfare. I am the Q. It's good of you to come by today. A. Not at all. I happened to be in town for a few days with nothing to do, and since you've got plenty of free parking space for my Cadillac here be- hind the studio, it seemed like it would be a painless way to spend n lillle idle lime. Q. You've been out of town thftn? A. Just up to Maine for the summer monllis. It's a liltle early yet for Jamaica. Q. Being on welfare must be tremely gratifying to realize that that hate is helping thou- sands of hard-campaigning poli- ticians rise to the top of their profession. A. WeU, without being im- modest about it, I would have to say that I sometimes feel mighty proud of the service I perform for the men who labor so hard to bring out the worst in our country. Q. How did you become the bum on welfare, sir? Did you major in it at college? A. It just came naturally, Phil. You sec. I was one of THEM. "Q. Really? One of THEM That's disgusting. A. Exactly. And we all know who THEY are. Q. I'm sure we all know who THEY O.TC, but for the benefit of any newcomers in America who may be listening, why don't you just tell us who THEY are? A. Well, Frankly, Phil, now that you ask me, I really don't know who THEY are, but who- ever THEY are, THEY are the reason for the trouble. Q. Do you believe THEY are related to THOSE WHO? A. I rather doubt it. THOSE WHO, you see are the crowd that is always saying America is no good, thus forcing Presi- dent Nixon to defend America, even at the risk of his political career. Q. As the bum on welfare just one long vacation. Don't you ever get tired of it? A. Frankly, it's exhausting, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

The truly silsndid sort of; person whom America is all about. How can you sit there and look me straight in the eye? A. I had special training for it, Phil. Q. Fascinating! Then you did have some special vocational inslvuclion? A. Yes, I attended the aca- demy of political quacktloodle and small fraud. There they taught me to look really mar- velous human beings like your- self right In the eye, so that you would want to kill me. (J. And a good job they did too! I want to kill you right now. A.
