I am trying to do that and I am willing to aid in sponsoring these sewing projects if WPA officials will just be willing to lend us some degree of cooperation in the matter." · Rankin asked for a list of women employed on the sowing projects for publication but the WPA refused to submit it. "If they have anyone on'th'sc projects they are ashamed of then those people shouldn't be there," declared Rankin, saying he had reports "there were several questionable women" working on the projects under assumed names and "several others" not as much in need as some women who would be entirely subsistent on these wages. "Others can play politics if they wish," he said, "but not at my expense when 1 am accountable for the way the taxpayers' money is spent." Rankin also asked Wl'A authorities to furnish a list of where goods went from the sewing projects. "I want to be honest and open In this business. If the others would be the same then the sewing project could continue as before under our sponsorship," he said. The county commissioners, PS sponsors, foot the bills for materials on the project with wages being met through Federal 'unds. The commissioners were given to understand (hey would have no voice In (he matter of supervisors, Rankin said. · "If they can sec to give the coiinly sonic benefit and give us a voice in the sewing project, then they can go ahead," Rankin declared, "I'm interested in where our money goes and who receives it. That's the sole interest we have in this dispute and no one c;m force our hand until there is some definite understanding.' 1 The commissioners, under the law, must assume rcsf»onsibillty for advertising for materials for the «:«.·- ing project when the cost Ij $500 or more and the bid must go to the person submitting the lowest figure.
