realizes more clearly this year than last year the sharp demarcation between Federal and State activities in iilief of unem ployment and the private work of our citizenry for relief through the Community Chest agencies So serious is the need for con tinuance of community welfare work in all its branches that Presi dent Roosevelt himself as time and again warned the nation that Fed eral unemployment relief must be operated within definite channels and therefore a breakdown in the private welfare structure would be tragic THANKS PUBLICITY Rice attributed better public un derstanding of the entire problem to the educational program the National Mobilization for Human Needs headed nationally by New ton D Baker and in the Eastbay by Dr Aurelia Relnhardt and to the continuous efforts of the educational publicity department here under Dr J Frederic Ching Another very strong factor in clarifying public opinion in our communities this Fall has been the openhouse exhibit conducted by scores of Community C h e s t agencies Rice said In this work Dr Chings com mittee was most ably supported by the executives the ngencies and their committees and by the man agements of several leading Oak land stores The purpose of the openhouse demonstrations Rice explained was to acquaint the public with the nature and scope of service rend ered by more than a halfhundred Chest
