A.P. Bmuy our daily bread There is an ancient story of a king who was dying of depression. Physicians tried every cure they knew; then it was suggested that the king's depression could be cured, if he managed to wear the shirt of a per-fectly happy man.

The search was made throughout the realm for a perfectly happy person. At last they found such a person. He was a tramp, bronzed, carefree, utterly happy. They offered him fabukms sums to buy a shirt, only to discover that the happy tramp did not possess a shirt worth taking to the king. But the wanderer sent this message to the king: The way out of depression is to find a right relationship with oneself and with one's fellowmen, and with God to alter the whole direction of life."
