Abstract

The problem during the past six years a great deal of attention has been centered upon the problem of caring for the needy persons in this country. This problem has been thrust most forcibly upon the attention of the general public with the creation of numerous emergency relief agencies. Never before has a general public relief been extended to so many people, and never before has the federal government entered into the realm of relief giving to such a great extent. Depression, augmented by drought in almost all the agricultural states in 19347, brought the number of persons cared for by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration to over fifty per cent of the total population of these states, South Dakota having one of the largest relief loads.
