Since Mr. Fred L. I&fford's term
of office as superintendent of schools
and public welfare expired on June
30th, it will be of general interest to
the citiiens of Haywood county to
know what has been accomplished
along welfare lines.
As the county has no whole time
welfare worker, Mr. Safford, by virtue
of his office as superintendent of
schools is the welfare 'superintendent
also. He is a member and is the sec
retary of the county welfare board.
The county board serves without pay,
by appointment from the State Com
missioner of Charities and Public
Welfare in Raleigh. The board was
re-organized in January as folio'!
Mrs. Chas. E. Quinlan, Chairman;
Mr. M. Theodore McCracken, and Mr.
H. Arthur Osborne. The board has
taken as active interest in welfare
work, and has given Mr. Saf
ford its heartiest support in all of
his undertakings. i
Not only has effectve work, bem
done in our community, but the board
has co-operated witih' welfare-. super
intendents and workers on tthe fol
lowing counties: Wake, , fjpwyths,
Swain. Cherokee and Jacteon, aisb
Richmond, Virginia, and the South
South Carolina Industrial Home for
Girls, as well as various institutions
in our own state.

Mothers' Aid has been Secure! for;
two widowed mothers, one with five,
the other with four children. This
aid comes from a state fund which islLk,-hitt made marked success in
matched dollar for dollar by the
county to. assist worthy : mother-, to
care for their children in their own I
homes. This aid is given to mothers
only after a tkorrarh investigation '
as to their character end ttieir awl-
ity to use the money wisely and!
economically and to properly care for
and train their children. j
Two crippled men have been put in
touch with tlhe Vocational . Rehabili
tation Board in Raleigh, through its
field agent, who visits our county at
regular intervals. One of these men
is now receiving training so that he
may become able to provide for his
family. The other is preparing for
training. This vocational training
is for cripples of either sex, over six
teen years of age, who are disabled
either through illness-or accident, and
are capable of being trained for suit
able occupations, so that they may
become self-supporting citizens.
'Application for treatment for a
number of cripplel children has been
made at the Orthopaedic Hospital in
Gastonia, but owing to the crowded
condition of the hospital and the long
waiting list, only two have been ac.
cepted so -far. These two were taken
to the hospital on June thirtieth,
however, the -prospects are good for
the acceptpanee of others before long.
The board has a list of all crippled
children who were examined at the
clinic held at the County Hospital two
years ago. They are very anxious to
get in touch with these and any oth
er crippled and physically defective
children in Haywood county. The
board is particularly interested in
helping this unfortunate group. .
The number of compulsory school
attendance cases handled last year
was nine hundred and thirty-six, in
volving approximately five thousand
absences. Each of these cases callsd
for at least one letter and very often
a visit to the home of the child. All
were handled in a friendly way, and
no prosecutions were made. "After h
veatigation all of these children were
returned to school, :xcep; in a few
instances where lawfi-1 excuses were

FIFTY-ONE YEARS OLD VISITS
COUNTY SEAT FIRST TIME.
Mr. J. W. Phillips of Big Creek
which is only 34 miles from Waynes
vine, visited Waynesville for the first
time in Ms life last week. Mr. Phillips
is fifty-one years old, a married man,
and a well-to-do farmer of the Big
Creek section of Haywood county.
It is a most unusual thing for a
mountaineer citizen to have lived for
fifty-onip years within tbjirty-iour
miles of the county seat and never to
have visited that city.
Mr. Phillips is an unusually intel
ligent man of a very quiet disposi
tion and appears to be one of those
old fashioned Scotch decent pioneers,
a tiller of the soil, who minds his
own business exclusively. He has
never served on a jury, nor witnessed
a iurv trial, never arrested in his
life, never drank any alcoholic bev
erages and is conscientious Chris
tian and up-right citizen.
He came to Waynesville to see the
sheriff about a horse that had been
stolen from him. And while being
interview by a representative of the
Mountaineer acknnowledged the
above to be true facts.
