i Preface
A This bulletin is one of a series intended to present in abstract
i form the public welfare provisions of the laws of each of the States.
f The purpose of these bulletins is to give a brief review of the
é provisions for public assistance under the laws of the several juris-
t dictions, and of the administrative agencies set up by law with reference
gi yp thereto. A chart showing the organizational relationships of the admini-
E ; strative agencies is included.
.   Q , The possibility of error in attempting with a limited staff and -
% in a limited time to assemble and digest the formidable mass of material
g incident to such a study is frankly recognized. The cooperation of those `
l E ·who have occasion to use these digests in reporting any errors of omission
% ` or cnmnission noted, or in suggesting improvement in fonn or content, is
E I invited and will be greatly appreciated. l
gi Meanwhile it is hoped that those interested in considering the
{ reorganization or strengthening of public welfare services in the several
ip States may find the digests of practical value.
