It will depend upon an emergency appropriation^ Officials said that $200,000,000 would be.a "good guess" as to the amount which R. A. will need In 1838 for relief and rural rchabill- tallon. It will require at least $50,000.000 for care: of 250,000 farmers transferred from the WPA for the remainder of this fiscal year.
