The day after hla graduation he
went to see hie Uncle James Wallach.
"Get a job for yourself." the uncle
told him. “I'd only Im hindering you

would aak him to luncheon lake

well-estebllalied business. At the thresh

the nephew back.

get that for a start—"
"Save five dollar^“ commanded the
uncle. “You can do It. Black your
own hoots, press your own pants, don’t
smoke. Limit your, elf to thirty cents
a day for luncheon. My limit was fif
teen when I started."
Aa it ha|«|>en«>d James ivouglas had
just thirty live cents In hla pocket at
that time, so It s«*emed rather Impera
tive for him to begin the thlrty-cent
luncheon ra-gltne at once. Five crate
would be necessary for car fare. There
must be no tip—th« t meant a cafeteria
of some sort.
