"The American Legion has a na tional endowment fund of $5,(XX),(KX), the income of which is now being used for orphans and children of veterans," Miss Jones explained. "North Carolina has not received its share of this fund, because no effort has been made to locate the needy persons in this state who are entitled to assistance from this source." Although only children of veter ans may receive help through the American legion endowment, it was stated, other handicapped and un derprivileged children will be listed in the survey now being made un der the sponsorship of the legion so that they may be cared for by state agencies created for this pur pose. The Macon county post oLlhe legion has requested that all veter ans in the county, whether mem bers of the legion or not, co operate with Miss Jones in this project by sending to her informa tion concerning any children in the countv who are handicapped through blindness, deafness, lame ness or other afflictions and are in need of assistance. Blank forms for supplying the proper informa tion may be obtained from Miss Jones at the office of Miss Rachel Davis, county superintendent of public welfare, tin the following days: July 17, 18 and 9.

Other Shipments Expected Later in Livestook Relief Plan ARMERS TO PROFIT To Be Paid $1 a Month Per Head for Grass Land Grazing Ten carloads of cattle, estimated comprise 3(X) to 350 head, are xpected to arrive here within the next few weeks for Grazing tm Macon county grass lands. Al though this county's full quota has not been announced, it is thought likely that Other shinnienfc nf rat. tic recently bought by the federal government from drought stricken western areas will be sent here later for crazine mirmicpc Macon county farmers alreadv have offered approximately 400 acres of fenced grass land. Besides this, it is estimated, there are several . hundred more acres of grass land available and many hundreds of acres of mountain land suitable for ranging livestock. urass Lands Preferred Those in charge of placimr the cattle in Western North Carolina, however, are following a policy of giving, preference to grass land. l.enoir 1. dvvynne, of Haywood county, who is directing the dis- iriDution ot the cattle in the 18 westernmost counties of the state- has received atmnrorl nf imfe irons for 25,000 head of cattle in this territory. For grazing on strictly urass land fanners will be paid by the federal government a dollar a month per lead, the grazing fees are some what less on poorer grass lands and wooded ranges. Relief authorities here have es timated that Macon county could graze approximately 800 head on grass lands and, if it is permitted, 1..MX) to 2,0(X) on mountain ranges. Crockett in Charge Distribution of the cattle in this county will be under the direction of the Rev. S. R. Crockett, garden and farm supervisor for the Macon county emergency relief. Arrival of the first shipment of cattle has been expected since the first of this month, but shipments have been held up pending inspec tion of the cattle. No definite in formation as to when the rattle will be shipped has been received here, but the relief authorities already have prepared stock pens near the Franklin depot so they can handle the cattle on arrival. If the cattle arrive this month, they will have approximately five months of open grazing. The gov ernment has not announced its plans for handling the cattle through the winter, hut it is thought likely farmers having enough feedstuff will be given an opportunity to feed them under contract, and some may be shipped to the eastern part of the state or to other sections where year-round grazing is avail able. , The. government has promised that it will not place the cattle on the market in competition with privately-owned stock for at least three years. However, it may slaughter the stock and distribute the beef to needy families through relief chan nels. Eller To Speak at Church Training School The Rev. K. R.
