States Must Aid In Relief!
U. S.To Provide] Fourth Of Fund Allotments To Be Made On Basis Of One To Three, Director Explains The Federal Relief administra tion expects the states to make substantial appropriations for relief within their borders in the belief that they should get along with federal assistance equaling one third of their own expenditures. This statement was made by Harry L. Hopkins, the Federal re lief administrator, in announceing gifts on the one-to-three basis to Pennsylvania, Michigan and Geor gie. The amounts allotted to these three states comes from the recent ly created $500,000,000 fund. They were $4,547,913 to Pennsyl vania, $3,915,107 to Michigan, and $57,895 to Georgia. Hopkins said the money allotted must be spread over a considerable period. The allotments for the second quarter based on expendi tures of public moneys during April, May and June will be due in July, but there will be no allot ments between July and October. "If we keep on financing on the uasis ui percentage ana amounts equal to the amounts received from the Reconstruction corporation, the $5 00,000,000 will not last long,” he said. "The states must do their share. "It was the intent of congress that we shall pay a reasonable share of the cost of relief, and that is all we will pay.” The $500,000,000 fund is divid ed into two parts—$2 5 0,000,000 to be allotted on the one-two-three basis, and $2 5 0,000,000 to be dis tributed after October 1 on the basis of need. Hopkins said that before giving away any of the latter money a se ries of conferences would be held to determine the needs within thej state.
