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. Homes for five needy children h&ve been secured. Free treatment in oar county hos pital has been given to fivtf of our welfare cases. Arrangements were r& tVSlh&l a needy mother and he small child werei sent to anothe." commuhMy where a comfortable ,.om and suit able employment could be provided. Transportation was se:ufcd for' an other fam.iv of six, returning them to T fir former home. ,. ... ,., Two $ir! hav? Beet ain't 'w A res cue home. 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 ' . 1 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 given. Eighty-one dollars and " sixteen cents was expended for books and clothing for needy xnool children, distributed over fourteen . cases. Clothing lwai ,. pouV ;orlve chil dren, the balance being) spent ' for books. TMa'nptti MM'tomJfiat2Dl,'to ttti"' - The Elmart Ladhstore' First Sale Ever Hefd By Exclusive Ladies' Store Now Going on.

It certainly looks that way just nov.

So no attem pt was made to hold a meeting. Naturally this indifference on the part of the farmers in the county to ward a movement concerned with matters of such vital importance to them is-discouragmging to the men who are trying to get them to pull together in improving and in selling their livestock.

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.
