FOR LABORERS All Farm Workers To Be Withdrawn From Relief Rolls Raleigh, Sept. 27 - Due to the seasonal increase in farm employ ment in harvesting and market ing cotton, tobacco, and other props all work projects under the NCERA in rural sections cf the State will be discontinued im mediately, Mrs. Thomas O’Berry, State Relief Administrator, an nounced. Mrs. O'Berry said that hund reds of calls for farm workers have been made at the local re lief offices by private employers during the past several days in dicating the need for work and direct relief to care for unem ployed farm workers has sharp ly declined. The State Administrator said that all farm workers in the State clasified as “employables” will be removed from the relief rolls not later than September 26th. “During the height of the har vesting season”, Mrs. O’Berry said, “when the need for addition al farm workers is so urgent, the need for work projects and direct relief to care for unem ployed people is reduced to the minimum. “With few exceptions, we are suspending all work projects in the rural areas aPd removing farm laborers from relief rolls in order that farmers and others offering private employment may be assured of adequate help dur ing the harvesting season.” Work projects to be expected are those dealing with 100,000 cattle brought into the drought striken areas of the Mid-West and the canning projects. Mrs. O’Berry said the discon tinuance of work projects and the removal of the employable people from the relief rolls is in line with the Administration’s general policy of rehabilitation. “We make every effort to see that our relief clients return to private employment where they may continue in the work in which they have been trained, or work which they have been ac customed to do, when the em ployment s available. We believe that employment is now avail able to the large majority of the farm workers on our rolls.” Mrs. O’Berry said that relief for unemployable people will be continued as usual.
