CECIL. COUNTY CHILDREN’S AID
The Cecil County Children’s Aid
Society held its Annual Meeting at
the Episcopal Parish House in Elk
ton on April Ist. Miss Katherine T.
Kirwan of the Maryland Children’s j
Aid Society, was present and pians)
were considered whereby the 'state j
organization would assist the County j
Branch for an experimental four j
month period during which time trie
county would share with five other
counties on the Eastern Shore the
services of two trained social work
ers, whose salaries would he paid by
the central office. The expense of
board, clothing and medical care for
the children in the county who have
been committed to and are under care
of the Aid Society is to be met by the
county with private donations to sup
plement the county appropriation.
This arrangement calls for a smaller
budget but also less help from train
ed workers, and means that the local
organization will have to do a good
bit of the routine work which has
been done heretofore by the worker.
Officers for the coming year were
elected as follows: President, Mr.
Wallace Williams; Vice President,
Mr. Edwin S. Dorcus; Secretary, Miss
Bertha Balderston; treasurer, Rev.
J. Warren Albinson. The members
of the Board whose terms expired
this year were re-elected for two
years, and it is hoped that a 100
per cent response to the membership
drive which this group will sponsor
will yield the necessary funds to care
for this very deserving group of
children who for one reason or an
other seem to be without homes of
their own. These children are fu
ture citizens of Cecil County and
what they become depends very
largely on the care given them by
their more fortunate neighbors. The
cooperation given the state organi
zation by the county branch will de
termine whether this plan can be
continued for the year as would seem
very desirable. The district office
for the present will be continued in
Elkton with Miss Sibbet and Miss
Rau doing the work in the six coun
ties, with the assistance of local
groups of volunteer workers in each
DEMOCRATS PLAN RALLY IN
Young Democrats of the counties
of Maryland will play prominent
roles in the activities which will
mark the welcome to Baltimore of
1 President Roosevelt April 13 when
1 he comes to the Fifth Regiment
Armory to deliver the first speech of
his political campaign. The coun
tians are organizing their units for
attendance at the Armory to hear
1 the President and at the Ball which
will follow; also in the parade which
will escort the nation’s Chief Exe
cutive into the Armory.
The rostrum from which the Presi
dent will speak will be the same he
used when he spoke there during his
1932 campaign and also the same
that Senator George L. Radcliffe, his
Maryland campaign manager, used
when he ‘stumped’ there in 1934,
while running for his present office.
Demand for tickets to both the
Ball and Dance has been very heavy,
according to Louis Goodman, secre
tary of the committee in charge of
the Rally and Ball. While general
admission to the Armory is free,
tickets will be required. Tickets
for the Ball are one dollar per per
son. Both tickets for the Rally and
Ball may be obtained in the city at
headquarters at the Lord Baltimore
Hotel and in the counties from lead
ers of the Young Democratic Clubs
of Maryland. Tickets to the Ball
entitle holders to reserved seats for
the President’s address.
