city declared Mr Dickinson in his address Many persons think there is an abundance of government money and that all you have to do is tn get il Senator Dickinson con tinued But remember there is not a dollar in the treasury that was not put there by taxpayers The purpose of the building pro gram under way by the government is to provide money in times of stress and need As the time far conservation

each one of you think goes lo make up the maas opinion of your locality and that our country is mnde up of these various parts I dont expect to see the govern ment put on another building pro gram for many years The reason is that the Income tax and other means of government income are shrinking and that Ihere will be the greatest call for curtailment of cx Turn tn Ingfi 5 folunin Win for Nonstop
