Who Shall do the Farmwork?
Relief clients report thut a new ruling has been made
at the local relief office.
The new ruling requires that all who are physically able
to work must try to find work of some kind or get work
some relief project, before they can receive any relief.
If they can't find work themselves, the relief officials
will try to get them on some project work, and if that fails—
well, then they can get relief. But not until chances for work
have been probed which may take a week or two. In the
meanwhile their families can starve or go in want for no pro
visions are made to provide for them during the hunt for
work. This includes farmers as well as all others.
How the farmers are going to get their work done on
the farm, or how they will ever become self supporting when
they have to leave their farmwork undone, does not bother
the relief officials any in the least. Most likely thev do not
consider that at all.
rt+u ,, ., ,, , . . J , ,
the idea that people be put to work on some
worthwhile job and earn their living is perfectly sound. The
reatest majority Will welcome it.
But the idea that the fanners shall work awav from
ions and let their farmwork go undone is unsound—even
ridiculous. The farmer has enough to do at home, and there
IS no sense m forcing him to work on other jobs when there
IS an army of unemployed workers going idle. Give the farm
er relief to tide him over until his crop is harvested, and
give all the work there is to be had to the unemployed.
Putting the idle workers to work at good wages will ere
ate buying power and enable the workers to buy the farm
!( ers products at fair prices. Then the farmer can sell his goods
\ and anner'shoul^fnsîst e on° stavine^at relie j* d
their farmwork and still be given relie? me ^ d °

physician will be hiring somebody
else to selrve in his stead, no mat
of them are willing to admit it . :
According to the attorney gener
al - s opinion, people unable to pay ;
their doctor bill and having a com-j
plicated s i c kness, that the county
dortor docis not know what to do
with can now lay down and die and
the „ e is nothinK we can dc about
it becausa that's the way the law
rea ds. Paying no attention what
ever to that kind of law is the only
thing we can do.
In t^is county we have had many
cases where people have been sent
a'way and have been cured. If the
doctor should have paid for that
out of their own pockets it would
never have been done. And it is,
also a safe bet that most of them
would have died here had they not
been sdrt to a clinic or a better
hospital somewhere else, as there
is a limit to what any one doctor
knows. In many cases a guessing
contest is the nearest they can
come to it.
