The M inister N ever Fails You
Every officer of the Government with a war
message to deliver appealed to the ministers first
But 80% of the ministers receive less income
than government economists figure as a minimum
for the support of an average family.
When hospitals need money they enlist the
support of the ministers—and receive it.
But when sickness visits the minister or the
members of his family they must be treated in a
charity ward. His pay is less than a day laborer’s.
8 out of every 10 ministers receive less than
$20 a week—aboift half the pay of a mechanic.
