For the rehabilitation work of the re
lief committee 141,728 has been expended
up tu the present time. This was used
on US cases shown on the records up to
Thursday night. Averages In this case
however, mean very little, as In some In
stances not more than $25, or perhaps
JJO, is .appropriated, while In others sev
eral hundred dollars are necessary to
repair the home properly.
The amount appropriated for each case
has been gradually rising, Instead of de
creasing, since the first fifty that were
handled. This Is taken to mean that
more difficult problems are now being
taken up by them while the first ones
decided upon were cases In which the
damage was so slight that they were
taslly disposed of.
Meets Uach Afternoon.
The committee holdr meetings every
afternoon at the Commercial club room
from 3 to S o'clock, at which time the
new Issues for rehabilitation are taken
up and passed upon. The committee is
especially ahxIoUs that requests be pre

holding these meetings In prder that all
may be properly disposed of. They have
asked that anyone having a case In mind
that should be Investigated present the
facts to the committee so that It may be
considered at one of the meetings.
