More Conveniences Needed for Inmates of County Home
There are many commendable things that can be done for the county home for indigent persons, said CHARLES F. ADAMS and JOHN F. EASLEY, who went to the home. Mrs. CLAUD ARNOLD, who with her family moved in here nine years ago from Newport and Lone Grove, is the matron, and her husband is the superintendent. Mrs. Arnold’s daughter-in-law was at the place Thursday morning.
The home is located on a highway that skirts the south edge of the Walcott addition. The home of the county, first owned, was destroyed by fire and to provide immediate shelter for the inmates, an oil field house was moved to serve temporarily but that temporary house has not been changed. It has three rooms and a kitchen and dining room combined. It looks frail. It has electricity, gas and water. It does not have a water heater or bathing equipment.
Small cottages, if you would dignify a room by calling it a cottage, are maintained to house the inmates, at this time, six men and one woman. The inmates must like it. Mrs. Arnold says they were all there when she came here nine years ago. …
All the churches visit the home. The Salvation Army comes… It has no meeting room. It has no room where inmates might hear a sermon or where they might listen to a radio…. They bathe in a tub and they resist taking a bath. Their toilet is a WPA outside toilet.
But in food the matron is not limited. She buys groceries and meats and serves dinner in her own dining room… When asked which commissioner manifested the most interest in the home, she named CLAUDE HOLDEN but said that LONNIE ROONEY, who took office July 1, was taking quite an interest in the home. … The oldest inmate is 9o0 and he is blind or almost blind. The one woman has a little room off to herself… If the inmates could raised turkeys or chickens or take an interest in the cows, they have that opportunity for the place has plenty of acreage… HERSHELL GILLIAM is giving certain receipts from his picture show to build these people a hall to use for games or for Sunday school purposes.
