of the federal Transient service adds a report that the number of transients being cared for at public expense in this state has declined ap preciably One transient center at Des Moines was abandoned yesterday another at Daven port will be closed later this month and a marked decrease in the case load at others throughout the state is noted Mr Edgecombe attributes this gratifying trend to the fact that many transients are obtaining employment chiefly at farm work That is distinctly good news Its effective handling of the jobless trans ient stands out conspicuously os one of the redletter items in the record of the present administration at Washington The civilian conservation program has taken thousands of wandering boys off the highways and freight cars and put them at constructive manbuilding work producing something of lasting value to the country The transient service has taken thousands of hoboes out of circulation and made them earn their keep without making nuisances of themselves Panhandlers are met far less frequently on the streets than they were a year or two ago These are praiseworthy accomplishments of the Roosevelt administration They are laying the groundwork for o constructive method of handling the transient problem even in times of prosperity The problem al ways a troublesome one has always existed and cannot be expected to disappear with the passing of
