In that locality the drought last season was severe, and the farmers are desperately hard up in many cases, One farmer said he and all his nearby neighbors still had 1931 licenses on their cars, but had just got notice from the sheriff that the cars would be taken up unless new licenses were bought. • In Charles City a woman pointed out four of her five nearest neighbors who were getting aid from the county. This was in a more than average substantial neighborhood when the Hart-Parr plant is running. , . ' - • • There is much bitterness there about the county aid* matter.

The disks and wire were painted green. They also have a number of pheasants in a large cage and rear the young. At Gust Isenberg's recently we found the boys cutting potatoes for fare work, only to see neighbors all around us who are still driving better cars than we can afford getting county relief, and the very same refused jobs, were found on the list, also men who were attending dances and driving good cars. The social worker matter Is now under fire there, one social worker having been dropped after , charges of favoritism, and another hired who Is not satisfactory to the local newspaper, which had a candidate who had agreed to work on trial and pay his own expenses the first month. Charges of brutality are made, and the whole thing is about what is to be expected in any town where extensive charity Is being dispensed. Last Christmas nearly 400 baskets were distributed to' applicants in Charles City, where .some 2,000 families reside. At Mason City we heard that Algona was sitting pretty during the depression. ... The reason given was that we had lost our banks early, and had then got started with a sound new bank before the depression became severe.
