Sturtevant s fire department loses chief who organized unit last year by Henry j. Steketee what proportion of the Cost of providing Aid for dependent children of Racine county will be borne by the state this year this is a question which members of the Board of supervisors Are pondering. year was the first year in a Long period in which the county received Back from the state amp sizable amount As its share of the Cost of administering this form of Relief. Of the $80,000 appropriated by the county for 1934, the state sent Back $8,920 to the county. This was the largest amount received in Many years the average previously sent to Racine county having been about $1,000 a year. When it is considered that the state is supposed to reimburse the county one third of the total Cost the allotment sent last year was not very praiseworthy. Yet the increase Over previous years leads some of the supervisors to feel that the state is becoming More generous. $85,000 for til is year. Excuses offered in the past for the state s dereliction were to the effect appropriations were not sufficient to Grant to each county the proper amount to which they Are entitled under the Law. The county Board has appropriated $85,000 for this year and supervisors Are wondering How much of this amount will he forthcoming from the state administration. Although the appropriation last year was Only $80,000, the total expended for the Young charges Dren and her name is then taken from the Roll. Aid is extended Only to children of 14 years and younger. Widows whose applications Are granted Are permitted to use the checks Only for the payment of rent for fuel food or clothing. Frequently the Aid extended is referred to As Quot we to Down to pension. But this is erroneous. The Aid is Only for children of widows.
