Well, that’s Shanghai today, a
fabulous and fascinating city, and
probably the moet expensive place
in the world to live.
I talked with a manicurist at the
Broadwqy Mansions, a hotel which
is owned by the Chinese govern-

Up on the 16th floor of > the
Broadway Mansions you hear an
equally sad story from the corres-
pondents who Hve there. They pay
$6 a day for their rooms—in prf-
vately owned hotel it ia $18 a day
—but thair meals cost an absolute
minimnm of $4.50 pet. day, exclu-
sive of tips. And tipe are very im-
portant in Shanghai.
“I am getting $17.60 a day for
living expenses,” one correspon-
dent moaned, “and I am atlll tak-
ing a beating.
A milkshake costa $1.60, a coke
40 cents, eggs $4 to $7 a dozen.
I went to Sun Ya’a, famed
Shanghai restaurant, for dinner.

bill, without drinks, was $106. I
did not grab the check.
The rata of exchange varies

I talked with the wife of a Navy
“I have gone to work for an
auto agency to keep ua from going

two children and, to feed and clothe

W. S. Montgomery, chief of the
adjudication division of the Dallas
VA office, said 81,862 veterans
profited by the first broad raise in
payments since Worty War I. The
veterans live in the 64 countlee ser-
ved by the regional office at Love
Field. They an a part of the near-
ly 200,000 veterans in Taxaa, Lou-
isiana and Mississippi who raceiv-
ed similar increases.
World War II veterans, by a ra-
tion of nearly four to one, shared
in the increased checks. *
Total disbursement from Dallas
