Cutb k In FROM PAGE 1 Under the present king-sized dil ema these people are seeking ~food and clothing from churches and anywhere else .they can tell their story. But even these sources of help can not continue for long. Apathy In Not Realizing AlL,hough there has been great apathy among Jefferson county people with regards to the dire needs of many families who de- pend upon seasonal labor for their pay checks, t,his apathy has not been that there is not the desire to help on the part of the people but rather to the fact that the need for the surplus food distribut ion program was not fully realiz- ed. Jefferson countians have'*al- ways in the past stood ready to help their own in need and those few who have already started ,to work on the problem feel confi- dent they will .again. It is not something new for the DPA office in Jefferson county to receive requests for assistance from many families in certain areas of Jefferson county each I month with the number always increasing during the Winter mort ths. But whereas the DPA has al- ways been able to keep a lit,tle something in the way of foodstuffs in the usually skimpy cupboards, the situation which has developed since January 15, has left the cup boards of many of these homes completely bare. H. Ward Nicklin, Jr. of Martins- burg, Dis.trier Director for the De- partmen,t of Public Assistance is in Charleston this week getting facts on how quickly Jefferson county can begin participating in the surplus food distribution pro gram if a sponsoring unit can be found in the county. He Is expect ed to be in Charles Town early next week to talk with DPA offi- cials and any other persons or or- ganizations who might be interest- ed in helping with the program in Iefferson county. At the same tirne DPA officials ;aid they thought that Mr. WVhitt- ington is also still working hard trying to get something worked out as quickly as possible so that surplus foods can begin coming into the county for distribution.
