RADIO PROGRAM No. 404 - Dealing with the Problem of Gambling

SPEAKER: For many years today's guest felt that gambling was an important part of his life. He enjoyed it and didn't find any convincing reason to stop. But his viewpoint underwent a complete change, and he's going to tell you how this happened. Let me introduce Melvin M. Pellman of Palos Verdes Estates, California.

MR. PELLMAN: It's the easiest thing in the world to drift along and not even realize you're breaking the First Commandment—pursuing false gods. I know, in my case, I did that with gambling. I liked card playing of all kinds, and then betting on horse races. I lost thousands of dollars at the races.

We'd love to hear from you!
