JVitll announcements coming from
Jriotts county seats that the coun
ty weilare boaras nave Deen appoint
ed, nothing appears to have been
doneby the commissioners of Per-
qnarisns' as to the appointment ofj
the f M member of this board which
''the 'commissioners are required to
The County Welfare Board, which
is a provision of the Social Securi
ty Act, will have very important
duties to perform. Its duties will be
chiefly to act in an advisory capaci
ty to the County Welfare Officer in
conjunction with the Board of Coun
ty Commissioners. They will have
something to say as to who of the
aged, and of the dependent children
are to receive benefit payments under
th Social Security Act, and how much
shall be paid in each case.
This welfare board should be com
posed of. the strongest citizens oi
the county, persons familiar with
conditions in the county, who know
the. people of the county, who are
interested in the welfare of the
county and who are willing to give
of thefr time for the public good.
Both Chowan and Pasquotank
Counties have announced the com
pete personnel of their county wel-
boards. Both of these counties
are represented on their county wel
fare . boards by high types of citi
zens. The citizens of Perquimans will
await yjjth interest the announcement
' of the board of county commissioners
as to their appointee.
IT WILL PAY
For every dollar that the county
pays to dependent children and to
old people under the provisions of the
Social Security Act, which goes into
effect on July 1, there will be paid
in to the county three more. If the
county, pays -an individual $5.00, the
state government matches that a
mount, and the federal government
then steps in with an amount equal
ing the total, with the
$20; is paid to the individual, only
five of which is furnished by the
county. In no case will the federal
government p: more than , $15 to
an individual under this plan, which
means that in no case can the county
pay . more than $7.50, which would
result in the individual receiving
These old age and dependent child
ren benefit payments, are going to
be spent right here among us. The
local business firms will get their
share of the money thus put into
circulation and the county will speed
ily get back its bread cast upon the
waters. We will not merely be help
ing our unfortunate people when we
allow them help under this plan, but
we shall be helping ourselves.
Let us hope that this angle of the
situation will be given due consid
eration when applications from the
needy of our county come up for con
sideration. G. A. AND R. A. PARTY

Keep us, O God, from pettiness;
Let us be large in thought,-in word,
in deed. C .. , , k
. Let us be done with fault-finding
and leave off self-seeking. '
May "we put away ' pretense and
meet each other face to face with
out self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judg
ment and always generous.
. Teach us to put into action our
better impulses, straightforward and
Let us take time for all things;
make us grow calm, serene and
Grant that we may realize it is
the little things that create differ
ences; that in the big tilings of life
we are as one.
And may we strive to touch and
to know, the great common woman's
heart of us all;
And O Lord God, let us not forget
to be kind. Amen.
When the farm women from all
over the Albemarle gather here
next week for the annual district
meeting, as in all such gatherings
all over this land of ours, this pray
er, the Collect of the Woman's Club,
will be said.
The words, written by Miss Mary
Stewart, are familiar to club women
everywhere, for it is not only in
home demonstration clubs, but in
clubs of various kinds the prayer is
used. Each meeting of the Woman's
Club of Hertford has for many years
been opened with a song, followed
by this prayer. At every home
demonstration club meeting in the
county it is. used, so that our own
women have grown to love the sim
ple words which express the desire
of so many hearts, and many have
committed them to memory.
