MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 14 0 1936 THREE DEFENDS CHILD WELFARE SETUP White Raps Federal Relief Workers Who Criticized State System. DES MOINES, (Xi~ Harry C. White, state control board member, Monday defended in a formal statement the state's child welfare setup- and charged criticisms of the setup by federal relief workers were unwarranted. White's statement, he said, was in answer to charges that six agents of the child's welfare bureau held "political plum" appointments and were otherwise unqualified. Concerning a letter from Governor Herring to the control board demanding action to obtain social security funds for child welfare in Iowa, White said: Herring Being Misled. "Personally, I am neither impressed nor excited in regard to this matter. If Governor Herring is, he is being badly misled " Throughout the statement White censured actions of Miss Florence Sullivan, federal field agent; Miss Ina Tyler, state director of relief for the Iowa emergency relief administration and Miss Genevjeve Coates, child case consultant of the relief administration. "Miss Coates did approve one of the state agents (child welfare agents) as fit, the one, who without doubt, is the poorest of the six, and the one whom the governor appointed. » "Political Plums." "Some months ago I asked the governor permission to discharge this woman because of incompeten- cy. I did not obtain his consent." White said Miss Tyler was quoted recently as referring to a "political plum" system in connection with the appointments of the welfare board's agents. "It is certainly some political plum to drew 5100 a month and work most of the time from 12 to 14 hours a day. Where and how did Miss Tyler and Miss Coates get the real political plums they now enjoy? If and when these political parrots gain control of the state bureau of child welfare, God pity the children."
