A statistician, who chooses to remain anonymous, has worked
out this little set of figures to join the currently popular game of
trying to make the blue eagle's face turn red. He figures:
U. S. Population - 124,000,000.
Eligible for the Townsend pension - 50,000,000.
Prohibited from working under the child labor act - 20,000,000
Employed by the U. S. Goverment - 40,000,000.
Unemployed - 13, 999,998.
Grand total left to produce enough for all of us to live on
- 2."These two persons," says the mathematician, " are YOU
and I " - AND I'M ALL TIRED OUT."
This was one of 13 items from a 1935 Atlantic Coast Line railroad file, the "ACL hoard." These are designated by "rr" after the date in the archive filename.
