M nlstesta lives. Those who ought to
know assert that Vic does not get a penny
o f salary from anarchists. H e certainly
cannot earn much at big trade, for all the
odd jobs o f mending bicycles, plumbing

nothing to do with strangers. It ia said

probably the correct one.

that he does live, considered by friends
