Eureka! At last a solution for the nation's financial troubles, i.e., the national debt, has been found.
In your article on the national budget, Sept. 1, you mentioned in a footnote that on Feb. 28, 1946 the alltime high had been reached, with the nation $279.2 billion in the red; while at present, one year and six months later, the debt has dropped to $258 billion. At this rate the debt could be discharged in a little over 18 years.
There must be an explanation. . . .
