His mother, who has three other children, was going out on foot in the rain from the farm labor camp into Ukiah to do housework —when she could find someone lo stay with the children for what she could pay. The father was in the hospital for an appendectomy. Tlie cold penetrated the wide cracks in the floor of the one- room frame cabin. They were crowded and without enough bedding, in the double bunk beds in the corner. The rent was overdue. They are migrant workers who lost their farm in Missouri and came to California hoping for a better life. They are not eligible for county aid—they didn't want charity. But things piledup and ten days ago they were cold, hungry and broke and getting desperate. Today the father is back at home convalescing. There is food in the house, bedding -and rugs to keep out the cold have been given them. The little boy is being outfitted in Ukiah this week by a local lodge who will send him to Shriners hospital for an operation. A genenous woman paid the rent. Warm clothing has been given them and several clubs and many individuals have supplied thqm with food and some household necessities. One club paid the father's hospital bill. The story of how Ukiah responded to their need is a heartening one and the little family (in which four children have died out of eight while times have been bad) will not forget the generosity that gave them a new hope that life in California from now on will be better. Other migrant worker families are living at the labor camp on Low Gap road and times have not beea easy for them during the wet weather when there was no work. But Joe Duarte, manager of the camp, questioned Monday said the men are all worldng this week and while they will gratefully accept shoes and clothing, sweaters and other usable items of bedding, furniture and wearing apparel, there is no actual destitution among them such as has been reported in valley districts where the plight of 70,000 has been called the attention of Governor Warren.
