other al phabetical groups of the new deal have at one time or another come in for scathing criticism but CCC has been singulary spared Aside from the charges of graft in the pur chase of toilet kits

effectiveness In all probability the president can write his own ticket as far as senators and representa tives are concerned Not even those who like Senator Huey Long of Louisiana derisively termed the CCC a bunch of sapling planters are apt to stand in the way 4 CCC Workers Hurt When Truck Crowded From Highway by Car CEDAR RAPIDS Oct 18 Four men attached to a CCC camp at Sigourney were injured
