“…Remember that this unemployment relief committee is asking you to share in the great work of raising of $18M fund for the relief of the unemployed. Governor Smith has said 'every volunteer worker, in the block to block canvass must put forth his utmost to induce wage earners to share with the jobless. If the $18M fund for unemployment relief is to be reached in the coming months, do your part if you have not already done it, remembering the great human motto of the Emergency Relief Committee, "I will share"’”.

Note: This segment is historically important because the Emergency Unemployment Relief Committee/ Joint Committee on Unemployment Relief was a short-lived and wholly unsuccessful attempt by President Hoover to relieve economic strains and coordinate local welfare agencies on a national level. The government program called for businesses and individuals to contribute to a welfare fund for the unemployed.

The Musical Pastels perform a Spanish dance, followed by D’Angelo performing “The Last Kiss”.

This musical interlude is followed by a reminder from Roland Weber: “…Remember that this unemployment relief committee is asking you to share in the great work of raising of $18M fund for the relief of the unemployed. Governor Smith has said every volunteer worker, in the block to block canvass must put forth his utmost to induce wage earners to share with the jobless. If the $18M fund for unemployment relief is to be reached during the coming weeks, do your part if you have not already done it. Do your part, remembering the great human motto of the Emergency Unemployment Relief Committee, ‘I will share’.” Outro and Station ID.
