B,v GEOKGE MILLS (Iowa Daily Tress Bureau) DES MOINES--Qualifications of some of the child welfare agents under the Iowa board of control Wednesday appeared to form a possible obstacle to a $37,500 annual grant from the federal government to the slate for child welfare work. Work of the six welfare agents connected with the board of control has been under scrutiny by a representative of the federal social security division for several weeks, it was learned. "Suggestions" Arc Made. E. H. Felton of Jndianola, board chairman, revealed that "some suggestions" had been made to the boa.-d recently when it met in joint session with Miss Florence Sullivan of Washington, field worker for the lederal child's welfare bureau. The federal government's final requirements for Iowa to qualify for the outright ,?37,500 "gift" are expected to be given to the board when Miss Sullivan returns to Iowa, Felton said. The welfare bureau worker is expected to come here again next month. Iowa's six welfare agents supervise the 1,200 juvenile "wards of the state" who live in private homes, Dr. Mae Habenicht, director of the tate'9 child welfare bureau ex- ilained. Dr. Habenicht directs the activities of the agents, although he latter group is appointed direct- y by the board of control. The gents locate suitable homes where people are willing to take children and rear them as their own. They also handle all child placement and supervision. The state director .vould not comment on the report o£ the federal government's requirements as to qualifications of .he agents- Fur Rural Sections. The child welfare program of the federal social security program provides that money allocated to states is to be "expended in sections predominantly rural" according to in explanatory pamphlet from the federal child welfare bureau. The money is to be used for "payment of part of the cost of district, county or other local child's welfare services in areas predominantly rural," the explanation continues. A number of Iowa counties make no provision for numerous phases of the state law regarding delinquent and neglected children, Dr. Habenicht said, and the allocation of federal money would enable the state to originate local systems which would fill in the gaps. Rather.than increase the number of children Sow being cared for in homes other than their own, the program would enable families to keep their children they otherwise are unable to provide for, she added. Besides the 1,200 wards in private homes, the state has another 1,200 children in the soldiers orphans home at Davenport and the state juvenile home at Toledo. Nashua Fire Truck Is Stalled After Theft of Gasoline in Tank NASHUA, (/')')--Nashua firemen found it impossible to return to town after a run to a blaze in the country because the tank had been almost drained of gasoline. About 20 gallons had been taken some time before the alarm. This is the third time in about two years that the fire truck's gasoline has been almost all stolen. 2 Held to Grand Jury of Court in Kossuth ALGONA--Leonard Johnson of Bancroft, appeared before county at- .orney M. C. McMahon and was re- eased from jail Tuesday after a previous bond had been withdrawn, ipon furnishing $1,000 cash bond lirnself and was bound over to the March grand jury. Harry McColley, Titonka farm hand, was bound over to the grand jury Monday night on charges of forgery. He waived a preliminary hearing before Justices of Peace P. A. Danson and was placed in jail under bond. Harold Burtis, Irvington, appeared before Danson Tuesday on statutory charges, which case was continued and O. L. Hopkins waived preliminary hearing before H. B. White, juistice of peace, on paternity charges of a child. He was bound to the district court after furnishing a $100 cash bond.
