A Stfious Situation II is doubtful if ninny dti/.uns of Mississippi county, even those in positions of offlcml rcspunsiljilily, have ft full realization of the extent of the problem which this county and the communities- within it must face us a result of curtailment of the federal relief program. The federal relief administration IUI3 decided that henceforth the iiKi'd, the crippled, the sick, .widows, and all those who would be unable lo work even if cmiJpymejil were available are to bn considered a local re.-ponsi- hility, not eligible to parlidpute in federal relief. There are in the neighborhood of 700 Htich families in Mississippi county. There are no local funds with which to provide for them. Probably this list of 700 can be reduced, but even if it proves |iussible to cut it in half the problem remains a large one. To provide even the barest necessities of life for ;i&0 families would require several thousand dollars .a month. The eounly does not have the money. The viirious cities do not have it. To raise enough for one month by public subscription niiijht conceivably be possible. To do it mouth after month is impossible. But the problem won't solve itself. We are not yoing lo let 350 families starve, or drive them from door to door as common beggars. It has been suggested -that n relatively painless way of obtaining the necessary funds might be through tin; issuance ol" scrip, to be retired through the sale of stamps required to validate each transaction in which Ihe scrip changed hands. Such a plan amounts lo nothing more or less than a sales tax, though a limited and voluntary one. It may be the only way of niccling ;\ situation that constitutes a ueiminc emergency. ^ plans niHih,'' bill now it may have I" abandon them ullo^ether, liecausu Uie owners of the land involved are holding oul for hiBh prices.
