. std the lean year wanes to Christina: what shall me, The qinehcd ones, the emply-hande tVhose yesterdays are but futility, And whoso tomorrows with the zen to live. Are all but eaten up? We may no , bring New gifts, the choice of wealth; bu \ve can take Some old gifts from our earthly gar nering And give them to the world for : Christ's 'sweet sake. For there are still upon life's attic , shelf A few old treasures worth passing on. Courage forgotten; love that knows not self Silt only others; virtue, men thought gone— We yet may give. If Time's thick dust we stir; We'll find our gold and frankincense and myrrh.—Selected. The Junior-Senior High. P. T.

How Help Is Divided Since the first money to be paid out under the program will be the grants lo slates for immediate welfare work, let's consider that phase and its sums' and conditions. It is the smallest of the three phases and the least controversial, since sim- lar federal subsidies have been granted before and there's no question of heir feasibility or constitutionality. The grants approved by congress and I about to be appropriated for are- I OLD AGE ASSISTANCE—This will i be described in a subsequent article, j along with the long range old age! plan. AID TO THE BLIND-Appropriation of $3,000,000, to be administered by SSB and distributed to states which contribute amounts equal to the federal allotment to them and establish state-wide assistance plans for the needy blind.

AID TO DEPENDENT CHILDREN —Appropriation of $24,750,000, administered by SSB, to states establishing systems of pensions for needy child or children under 16 who by reason of death, absence, or incapacity of a parent are living with' a relative "in a residence malntaned as a home." Most of this will come under the head of "mothers' pensions." the state must contribute double the amount of the .federal grant, giving two-thirds of any pension up to ?18 a month for the first child and $12 for any adidtional children. MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH —Sum of $3,800,000 to be administered by the Children's Bureau, through state health agencies for services promoting health of mothers and children. Grants are on a 50-50 matching basis, with $1,800,000 to be distributed in proportion to number of births in the states and $90,000 in proportion to need. i Present local material and child health services will be promoted in cooperation with medical, nursing, anc welfare groups. CRIPPLED CHILDREN — Sum o $2,850,000, handled by the Children* Bureau, for states on an equal match ing basis, to extend facilities and services for crippled children or children suffering from conditions leading to crippling, in co-operation with medical, nursing, health ,and welfare groups, and agencies specializing on rehabilitation of physical handicap ped children. CHILD WELFARE-Sum of $1,500,000, of which the Children's Bureau is authorized to pay $10,000 to each .state and $990,000 in proportion to rural population. Bureau and state public welfare agencies will co-operate to develop— especially in rural areas—welfare services for protection and care of homeless, dependent, and neglected chil r dren and children in danger of be'- cofning delinquent. PUBLIC HEALTH—Sum of $8,000,000 to be distributed by "U. S.
