Opening of the program Monday came on the heels ot the Federal Rovernment's voluntary national unemployment census, showing 58,288 Marylanders totally unemployed and wanting work.

The census listed 12,947 persons —11,237 male and 1,710 female— as employed by the Works Progress administration, the Civilian Conservation corps, or other emergency agencies. It was expected that about 10 per cent of the 400,000 workers covered by the stale's unemployment insurance plan would file claims for benefits. Eligible for benefits are persons who worked during the first three quarters of 1837 and the equivalent of eight full weeks for a commercial or industrial concern in Maryland employing at least eight persons. The most any idle worker can receive is $15 a week for IB weeks. Applicants cannot receive thier checks for at least three weeks . A two-weeks waiting period is required by law. It will be another Week before payment is due. LITTLE nations must be brave. You notice it's always the little one that is guilty of starting something.

By NORMAN YODER Senior at Baldwin-Wallace College, Rerea, 0. Cleveland, Jan. 3.—The "talk- g book" lias opened up a new audible world to 75 per cent o£ the blind in the United States. Seven thousand talking book machines have lieen constructed by W. P. A. organizations and placed in SS'clislribntirig lilmiries throughout the United States.

The machines are electric phonographs, geared at low speed, which use a record so finely made Hint earn side plays for 15 minutes. Professional actors from the stage and radio have employed fo read novels, poetry, plays, the Bible, non-fiction and scientific, material on these records. The talking book is so arranged that the reader may control both the volume and the tone ot the voice on the recording. Each year the federal government appropriates $75,000 for the construction of new machines and for the recording of new titles. The 28 libraries for the blind are scattered from Massachusetts to Hawaii and from the Great Lakes to the g«lf.
