THURSDAY; NOVEMBER 21; 1940 BLYTHEVILLE * (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Luxemburg, Wis., /Keeps Close Check On Job Status LUXEMBURG, Wis. iLJP)— Inquire in couomuniUcs of all sizes and descriptions what has been the outstanding municipal problem during the last 10 year's, and the nearly, universal answer will be— relief: > But for this community of 468 population, in most respects , a typical American village, public assistance has constituted no problem at all. Luxemburg hasn't had a relief case for 26 years. The explanation of that record, according to -Charles Peters, village president, lies »in the cooperation and neighborliness of Luxemburg residents and in the vigilance and energy of its public officials. A Luxemburg man who appears to be heading for relief rolls, always can count on help in finding a new job, Peters says. He cites an example: Committee on Job Hunt "Recently a neighboring township presented-lis with a bill for relief for a Luxemburg resident who was living in that township at the time. Instead of paying the claim, the village board appointed a committee who visited the individual. They took him on a tour of the neighborhood and found him a. job "that same day. There were' ho further claims for aid in that case, and the man soon paid the original claim from his own earnings." . Persons suspected of being potential .chrbnic relief clients or "floaters 1 ' have difficulty in renting lodgings -here.. , Peters' advice in such cases generally is accented.' : > . "The. other day," he recalled, "a woman:. told me ^ she had a chance to-rent a flat to -a-family planning to move to -the village. It happened ".I knew the family to be the ••floater 1 type. On my advice the woman refused to rent her flat. .Later. I learned that the •-family .in question was receiving reaei 'in a 'nearby township." .Luxemburg's avoid-relief policj has encountered one .drawback. WPA Propcct Lost :*We have applied for a WPA crew to build a fire cistern/' Peters explains, "and. the state .director '..tells.-us thaV ; virtually impossible.^.to set up a project withotjfr" -ha^niig /labor available. 'NQw. 7 how- *can *e get certified WpA. labor.;,without ;a relief case?" : In> addition.;;'to "its relief record, Luxemburg boasts "of being one of the state's few municipalities without.-a penny of long-term indebtedness.' lt : has no outstanding V -bonds. -And only for an occasional emergency expenditure does the village'-•' board - obtain short-term credit -, -The .village board practices a policy' of careful deliberation. Seldom is •• an • Important action .taken without unanimous approval. If -a; minority opposes a proposal, 'final:, action is delayed until all members have had ample time to consider the problems involved. "All'this would be impossible," said Peters, "without the help and real cooperation of the officials and people. Anyone on the board —Leo -and Charles Seidl, Euiil Ed Jacques—is ready to perform an assigned task, at any. time. The same spirit motivates village clerk Clem Rassi and Doc Happcl, "our village treasurer. They have only one interest—the -welfare of, Luxemburg^' ....'• ,// Eavj I British Ship Saved 31 —ns irfcf for *•«/, rfrifts «fet f tiMftr imks ... 1—Gtrman surfcce roMtr if itt'rii gtx**oy . .^ Sketch map. shows how the armed British merchant cruiser Jervla Bay wrote naval history by daring action against German surface raider.
