Through the generosity of the Associated Jewish Charities, their
director, Mr. Harry Greenstein, was made available without expense to
the State, to act as State Unemployment Relief Administrator for a
period of nine months. Miss Anita J. Faatz, Supervisor of Social Wel-
fare, acted as the executive officer of the Advisory Committee on Un-
employment Relief prior to June 1, 1933, and since then has been assist-
ing Mr. Greenstein. In each of the counties receiving Federal relief
funds there has been set up a County Welfare Board, whose personnel
is selected by the County Commissioners and the Board of State Aid
and Charities. At this time County Welfare Boards have been organized
and are operating in twelve counties and also in the City of Cumhcrland.
In Baltimore City the relief funds made available by the Federal
Government and the State loan of $12,000,000 are being administered
by the Baltimore Emergency Relief Commission, appointed by Mayor
Howard W. Jackson. This commission has taken over the four privato
agencies which have been administering relief so effectively for a period
of more than two years, and hereafter, although the personnel of the
city staff will be largely made up of representatives of the four private
agencies, they will definitely be designated as public agents subject to
the control of the City Commission, the Board of State Aid and Chari-
tics and the Federal Relief Administrator.
Maryland has not yet accepted the provisions of the Wagner Act,
but Mr. Oliver C. Short, State Employment Commissioner, has been
appointed Re-employment Director under the Federal Rc cmploymcnt
Act, and as this Manual goes to press the necessary local committees to
administer that act are being organized in Baltimore City and in the
various counties of the State.
Maryland has also, of course, taken advantage of the emergency
conservation and reforestation work, authorized by the Federal Govern-
