Tcnn.—A million children living substandard lives, and at, least 1000,000 of them uriderournishod and in dire need. That is the picture of 205 Appalichin Mountain counties, a side of the picture not often seen by tourists and others fascianted by the "quaint" lives of the natives of the mountain regions and North Carolina. It is a vivid side-light of the Nat- iwial Emergency Council's picture of the south as a great region needing j so many things for development. It j is an accurate picture, for it is drawn j by Dr. Alva Taylor. Nashville socio- j logist and educational director of the ! Save the Children Fund. ; This fund since 1931 has reached j 50,000 children in the mountain re-1 gions, bringing welfare services, food,) clothing, and simple medical help in regions where no other welfare organization penetrates. It has touched some 50 of the 205 counties surveyed by Dr. Taylor. "Through Snow in Barefcct Its workers htve found many In- stances of the stark privation that lies '• behind the "quaint" life of theh high- ; landers.

Welfare workers who travel hundreds of miles into the hills where the "traces" are mere paths half- obliterated in the brush, tell of children walking miles barefoot on snow and ice to get to school. Thousands of such children have been given the demnation to ignorance and illitearcy. The reports of such welfare workers tell a tale of squalid helplessness that includes children bruoght into the world without a doctor's services, old flour sacks their only layette, sent shoeless to school if indded a school is available, condemmed to a life of hillsides, deprived of medical care in illness, and even of an undertaker's services in death. Half of the farms in the 20j-mountain county area. Dr. Taylor found, are of less than 50 acres. A fourth of them arc less than 20 acres. The average of cultivation land is o nly seven acres per adult male worker. Three fourths of the crop land has a slope of 40 per cent, or more, and and "where there is poor land, there are poor people." Attack Routs of Problem Hundreds of gallons of codlivcr oil haave been sent into the area by welfare organizations to counteract the monotonous and deficient diet.

Ltrangsst sight of the month: Maurice Schwartz, the Yiddish Theater's Clark Gable, striding down Second each day to make soup for her own and 50 other children. On one occasion she asked each child to bring one potato for soup. Only five were able to do so . That is the sort of condition met face to face by welfare workers who are going back into thhe hills to attack at the roots the cute problem of the South's mountain people.

Five-Man Him Vulnerable Without this sort of breaker-downer of defensive morale, quarterback strategy would be on the wane. There would bo no other way combating those shifting lines. A five-man line is a perfect setup, however, for a quick-starting fullback. The defenders are spaced a little wider.

Open Game Responsible Probably the biggest factor contributing to the rise of this of this streamlined power back has been the forward and lateral pass. The defense virtually was forced into the five and six-man line formations to combat the trick! aerial thrusts with which so many teams are now armed.
