State Committee
To Continue on
Old Relief Set-up
Continuation of relief set-up
on virtualy the present basis
was decided upon by the state
relief committee, of which Judd
Greenman is chairman, in ses-
sion in Portland Tuesday, Ques-
tions arising from the relief
legislation passed at the recent
special session of the legislation
were especially puzzling.
The
old-age pension bill came in for
its share of discussion.
Most Oregon counties have
already included old-age paj-
ments in their 1936 budgets
_
under provision of the 1933 legis­
lation, it was pointed out by
Mr. Greenman, and this money
will be tied up if the sales tax
passes. On the other hand, he
declared, defeat of the proposed
sales tax will return those re­
to
ceiving
old-age
payments
______ _ the same status as
virtually
those receiving indigent relief,
which the committee believes is
contrary to the spirit of recent
social security legislation.
Under the new relief set-up,
Greenman told the committee,
the SRC will match, dollar for
dollar, the relief expenses up to
January 1 of counties having
sufficient funds for this pur­
pose. Where the money is not
forthcoming from the county, he
said, the entire amount, or as
much of it as necessary, will be
provided out of SRC funds.
The committee decided to seek
$217,527 from the federal gov­
ernment for relief purposes dur­
ing December, despite the ruling
that no more federal funds will
be forthcoming because of the
establishment of WPA funds.
Total amount necessary for re­
lief in Oregon during December
was estimated at $342,874.12
plus administration costs of $45,-
886.23, in the monthly budget
aprpoved by the committee.

LIBRARY CELEBRATES
CARNEGIE CENTENNIAL
The Centennial of Andrew’
Carnegie’s birth, which occured
November 25. 1835, is being
_
celebrated this week by librar­
ians throughout the nation, sig­
nifying 100 years of the growth
and development of the pub­
lic library made possible large­
ly through the devotion and the
bequests of that great philan­
thropist.
The Vernonia Public library is
fortunate to have among its
books the “International Mind
Alcove”, a group of about 100
volumes, not yet completed, pre­
sented through one of the Car­
negie foundations. The books are
new, timely, and intensely inter­
esting and present symphathet-
ic pictures of people of all nat-
nations and their problems, with
the ultimate purpose of creating
for the reader a broad inter­
national point of view which is
essential to the establishment of
international peace, one of Car-
negie’s ideals.
