CCC ENROLLMENT
NEXT MONTH
(Continued from Page One)
the educational and other op
portunities available in the
Civilian Conservation Corps”.
It is important to have in mind
the new definition of ‘‘unemploy
ed and in need of employment”.
This new definition is the heart
of the new regulation. The final
clause of the new definition
specifies that in order to be
eligible the applicant must "need
the employment, the job training,
the educational and other oppor
tunities available in the CCC”.
The word "need” used in this
connection has its customary'
meaning of inability to provide
such opportunities out of his
own or his family’s resources.
In other words, while it is not
necessary that the family be in
a relief status or unable to main
tain a normal standard of living
in order that the son shall be
eligible for enrollment, it is still
intended, as indeed the statute re
quires. that the enrollee shall
"need” the employment and vo
cational opportunities of the
Corps. If such opportunities are
fully available to him because of
his own or his family’s re
sources. he is not within the
regulation and under the statutes
eligible for enrollment.
The new regulation does re
move restriction upon selection
of desirable and qualified young
men. It opens the door to en
rollment to anew group of un
employed youths who have en
ergy and ambition and who need
the opportunities for work and
training which the Corps pro
vides. It is vital that the va
cancies in the camps should be
filled bv young men who will
make the most of those oppor
tunities. • .
It would be a splendid thing if
every young American could be
given the opportunity to serve
for six months or a year in the
healthful, outdoor atmosphere of
the CCC camps. The discipline,
the orderly routine of camp life,
the training facilities, the con- i
stant medical attention and the
inspiring leadership found in every
CCC camp could not help but
leave their imprint upon every'
youth who enrolled. The oppor
tunity to be of service to the na
tion. especially in these times,
should appeal to every young
American.
The Corps has moved, logical
ly. one further step in the direc
tion of selecting applicants on
the basis of their own need and
fitness for CCC opportunities. It
has. at the same time, moved fur
ther awav from the application of
an arbitrary standard of family
income as a basis for selection.
During the October enrollment
selecting agents throughout the
country should applv these prin
ciples with care so that the Corps
shall obtain a group of youths
who are ominentlv fitted to prof
it in exceptional degree from the
fine training opportunities of the
Corps, the bulletin urged.
"In conclusion”, Mr. McEn
tee wrote. "I wish to empha
size my hope and expectation
that during the October en
rollment we shall have, and
make use of. the fullest oppor
tunity to select enrollees on the
basis of their personal qualifi
cations”.

pleted for the wedding of Miss

home of Mrs. J. Ramos, of this

COUNCIL FAILS TO
ACT ON BACK TAXES
(Continued from Page One)
had already been very' well cover
ed. He suggested this alternative,
however. "A list of delinquents
could be handed to the fire and
police department, and whenever
service was requested from any
of those persons, it should be de
nied”. Ft. Myers, it was stated,
had successfully followed out
that procedure, though Boyden
didn’t know whether Key West
could do so.
Collector Sam B. Pinder was
then given a chance to address
the council on the subject that
so vitally affected his office. He
stated that he was perfectly
whiling to co-operate with the
council in any reasonable .man
ner and suggested that the coun
cil appoint a deputy collector to
make house to house calls in ef
fort to collect taxes—the com
missions to be paid by him. He
would co-operate by holding of
fice to receipt bills as they came
in.
Councilman Boyden, at this
point, tried unsuccessfully to
have the list of delinquents owing
more than SIOO read to the coun
cil then and there. Ramsey
amended the motion to read—
"s2s.oo and over”, but both the
motion and amendment lost—4
to 3—the division being exactly
as stated in the opening section
of this article.
Council president William Free
man then took the floor and pre
faced his remarks with this
statement —"I can’t see publica
tion of the list at all”. He was
of the opinion that only ten per
cent of the public would read the
list. *
Freeman reminded the gather
ing of "hard times” of 1932 and
subsequent five years in calling
attention to the lack of ability
to pay taxes. He offered two
suggestions—l. to make personal
contact with delinquent taxpay- 1
ers or write them letters, and 2.
make a satisfactory deal with
The Citizen to accept payment for
the publication bill as taxes were
collected. Later, however, he
had the city clerk record as his
reason for voting against pub
lication “because no money was
provided for that procedure in
the budget”.
Councilman Sweeting’s con
tribution to the discussion chief
ly concerned the danger to prop
erty owners in the city who (
could not afford to pay their
taxes. According to law their
property could be "sold for
taxes” along with that of the
“rich taxdodger” if the list was
published. No discrimination in
favor of the poor would be pos
sible.
After the final vote, some brief .
discussion was entered into on
other ways to enforce collection
of taxes, but no further light was
shed on the subject besides that
outlined in former statements as
recorded herewith. Accordingly,
the council adjourned.
MARRIAGE UCENSES
Records in the office of county
judge Raymond R. Lord this

a marriage license to Andrew
Everett Roberts, 22. and Shara

afternoon.

CLEVELAND, 0., Sept. 14.
Leo Faeching, w'ho raises both
pigeons and bantam chickens, is
waiting—with interest. One of his
lady pigeons has hatched a
bantam egg and is mothering the
chick. Someone of these days,
he figures, there will be a flying
lesson.
BROOKFIELD.—Speaking fig
uratively, a Plymouth Rock hen
at the Francis Steland place
didn't even lift an eyebrow’ when
she found three kittens, with the
chicks in her nest. A mother cat
had carefully deposited the kits
and then scooted. The hen
spread her wings over both
chicks and kittens • and clucked
contentedly.
MEMPHIS. Tenn.—Here’s an
other cat that doesn’t draw the
line on mother love. Mrs. L. O.
Shelby reports her Persian cat
has adopted a guinea chick along
with her eight kittens.

THE NEW DEAL
(Continued from Page One)
was President Roosevelt and a
Democratic Congress who gave
America’s poorest-paid workers a
living wage by establishing a
minimum wage under the Wage
and Hour Law. Under this legis
lation men and women workers,
some of them receiving as little
as $3.00 a week, will soon receive
a sl6 minimum for a 40-hour
week. Most of the workers af
fected, more than 2.000,000 of
them, w’ere unorganized and a
large majority were women.
• • and
When President Roosevelt was
inaugurated in 1933, the United
States was in a desperate situa
tion because of domestic prob
lems.
By the courage and wisdom
with which they met that situa
tion, I believe President Roose
velt and those under his guidance
demonstrated their ability to lead
this nation through danger. To
day we face a situation in which
the last great democracy on earth,
except our own, is in desperate
straits, fighting heroically for ex
istence, needing our help, en
couragement, and co-operation.
Is this any time to turn over
the helm to a man whose great
est claim to fame is that he sold
his utilities business to the gov
ernment?
I say no.
