WILLIAM P HELM first mort gage on the U S A is going to rise by at least several billion dol lars in 1955 if our new lawmakers buy all the government they are planning to buy The reason is quite simple We cant raise all the purchase price in cash so were going to do some of the buying on time Weve been doing it that way for years and it has always worked But how long will it continue to work Or should we pay that un pleasant question no never mind When a man or woman makes a buy of anything from a cake of soap to a new car or home pay ment is made in one of three ways One to pay witfc cash Another is r to charge it A third way is to pay part cash and charge the rest Thats what we do as individuals And always now or later there is a day of final settlement when we get a receipt in full for the bill However we dont buy govern ment as individuals We buy it as a group leaving it to our elected lawmakers to make the bargain and arrange the terms There are now 163 million per sons in our group millions morS than there were 10 years meet their needs and wishes we are buying more government Be cause of the increase in population alone the bill is higher and local government We like their gadgets J All of us realize tr a general way that weve got to pay for those gadgets sometime Some of are wondering when They the minority dont want to go over board With one eye on the gadgets they put the other on the rising debt How far has our 163mfllioa group gone in debt up to now So far as Uncle debt concerned we know exactly It stood at billion on the last day of October dont know eiactly how far our State and local ments have gone in debt but an unofficial estimate the tally at somewhat more than HO billion That isnt only reason We That probably is are buying a lot more government than used to especially In round figures all goverancBtis atoot baV ;
