Walnul — Blylhcvillr State Welfare Director Fears HeavyReliefLoad Most Says Arkansas Will Feel Industrial Layoffs This Winter WASHINGTON lift— A. J. Moss, Arkansas suu welfare commissioner, (ears a heavy relief load in Arkansas this coming winter. Moss was in Washington the past week 'or a series of public welfare conferences with officials of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, including Secretary Hobby. Diseiissmg Arkansas' outlook, Moss said indications are that some 100,000 persons to the state will need ration* and other aid this winter. Such a situation, if it develops, will be due, he said to lay-offs in industrial areas in other states and economic displacement within Arkansas. As a result of industrial shut dov. ns in Detroit and other such centers, he said, some 30,000 to i 35.000 workers have drifted back to I their homes in Arkansas and most oi them will be without regular employment. Mechanizaliim Hits And. he said .another 35.000 to 40,000 in the state are jobless or will be jobless because of Increasing mechanization, particularly on farms and plantations. It all adds up, he said, to a heavy relief load in the state. Moss said that as one relief step he has proposed use of a food- stamp plan in distribution of surplus commodities. Under such a plan, he explained, persons entitled to receive food as welfare recipients are given stamps which they can take to stores and exchange for commodities which are in surplus. The stores then turn in the stamps to wholesalers and jobbers and replenish their stocks. "This stimulates trade," Moss said, "and lets commodities move through normal channels." The plan now being followed .he said, makes the county "a sort of a iomissary." The counties, ne said, must, order surplus commodities through the school lunch program .then store mid distribute them. As a result, he said, counties must bear the storage and distribution expenses Irom already meager welfare funds. Express Train Collides With Freight 1 Killed PORT HENRY, N. Y. >f> — The Delaware and Hudson Railroad's Montreal-to-Ncw York City Lauren* tlan Express collided head on with a barreling 133-car freight train near this Lake Champlain shore village yesterday, killing a trainman and injuring about 50 persons, D&H officials said the trains were supposed to pass at a siding in Port Henry, a mile north of the wreck, and the railroad pressed an investigation today to determine why they had not. None of the Laurentian's 120 passengers was hurt seriously, but some suffered minor cuts and bruises. Six crewmen were hospitalized at nearby Fort Ticonderoga. Killed was Charles Bascue, 57. of Whitehall, head trainman on the freight.
