Little Stories From Life

THE HUMAN TOUCH.
They were waiting for the train to
Sylva one day last week a sun-tanned
old man with leather-wrinkled face
and his daughter married doubtless
in her teens, who held her under
nourished looking child of about two
The old man had lost out in tenant
farming near Waynesville, he said,
and received very little assistance
from the Relief. Now he was going
to Sylva, where the daughter lived, to
try for work.
"Shore has bin a bad winter, hain t
it?" he said, sitting down near me.
"But I've got my ticket to Sylva see
it here in my hat?" he continued, pull
ing off his worn hat and pointing
proudly to the ticket.
Just then two nicely dressed young
women entered the waiting room . . .
one with a boquet of flowers and
traveling bags. After buying her
ticket the young woman returned to
her seat to find the poor child reach
ing for the bags, the mother holding
the child back by the other hand. The
poorly-dad mother stopped chewing
her gum for an instant and, looking
enviously into the face of the more
fortunate woman, asked gimply
"Air you a-goin' to Sylva, too"

Scenes such as these were enacted in six states as
the fir.st serious dust storms of 1936 swept through
the midwestern "dust bowl" and threatened to turn
the area into a desert. Sections of New Mexico,
Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas
were lashed by the stinging sand blasts as it hurled
itself toward the Great Lakes. Frozen hard
throughout a rainless winter, the soil is now thawed
out and pulverized to a powder which the 40-mile
gale swept up by tons. Scenes of desolation marked
the newly devastated area which has not yet recov
