MORE MOTHERS SEEK ASSISTANCE Disappointment in Store for Most, as Little Money Is Available In addition to the 20 cases which heretofore have received assistance by the juvenile court, 25 new appli cations for aid under the recently enacted mothers' pension bill have been presented to Miss Margaret Nes field. the official investigator of the board of supervisors. Permanent headquarters have been established by Miss Nesfle,ld at room 345, city hall, where mothers unable to support their children may apply. Under the provisions of the new law, however, only half orphans under the age of 14 years whose mothers have lived in the state for three years, and in the county a year, can be con sidered for aid. As the act went into effect after the city made up its budget for the new year, funds are limited, so that little can be done at present except for the cases of half orphans already under the care of the city.
