Welfare league has start ed with the phrase Never have our resources been so taxed The year 1933 was no exception to the rule according to the report of the sec retary of the league We have all heard of endured and suffered by and after a fashion survived the economic situation Natural hazards never hurt men Fires famines floods do not fright en them unduly It is the unnatural fears ofnot being able to function like normal men and women that frighten them It makes them ab normal Poverty costs money Some one always pays for It Not Going to Pieces Our community is not going to pieces Our newspapers have in the last few years been full of the hopes of returning prosperity not in the brilliant fashion of postwar pros pects but prospects of work a chance to go out on the gravel to work in the park along The streams In the packing plant any thing to give a man his selfrespect and surcease from the pain of ask ng public aid We have seen despondency so often associated with persona in adequacy that we have come to pay great attention to studying the per son and to remedying the situation through the person himself But the new poor are different from the old and their poverty Is so much more clearly the result of Interso cial structure than Individual Inade quacy There are some physical con ditions to which no human organ lam can adapt Itself and famine and cold are two of these conditions Society has always treated fail ure with contempt and pity Today society If just must turn its atten tion to Its own structure In its In terrelation with the individual Mrs Blaise spoke of differences in viewpoints concerning welfare work and urged that citizens and social workers meet on middle ground I am making B plea that you forget any staid and set rules of welfare conduct on which you may have staked your hopes and with me are facing an era with prob lems never before encountered Many Problems Solved Many of our relief problems have been solved for us by the fed eral emergency relief office and an inspiring cooperative spirit exist ing between the offices has put new life into the work But we still have a long list of relief cases which are ineligible to federal aid or have special welfare features which are our own problems The fruits of our labor seemed to be graying hair sleepless nights and agitated grey matter But often when we were about to give up a job a budget was despair ing man became an example of re by that magic form ula of getting some work to do During the summer our city manager waved the magic wand which put many men to work The sewing room has developed beyond our wildest expectation and the campaign for used clothing and canned goods conducted by Mrs Curtis Amen and Mrs Seba Vail chairman of the welfare committee of the P T A council resulted in a large increase over last years do nations The sewing room Is a busy place So many volunteers are giv ing their time that Mrs Oscar Hay supervisor devotes her time largely to the supervision of the volunteer workers and their four or five busy machines Sewing Machines Loaned During the summer when vol unteers did not give so much time the sewing machines were loaned to women in their homes for a week or two at a time that they might do their own sewing Patterns are loaned garments are cut advice is given regarding the sewing and the sewing room has become a rea civic center The P T A groups church groups small sewing clubs individuals are making comforters dresses underwear layettes mit tens The WaTanYes have present ed us with the first installment of six quilts
