Claimant has been in a practically helpless condition since childhood, when he was a weak, puny, undersized child with defective vision and impaired mental faculties, afflictions which appear to have resulted from congenital causes. At an early age he became totally blind. He has never been able to do anything to help earn a support except as a blind person may be able to do inconsequential tasks, and as a result has always been dependent as he is now. He has no means of any consequence and no income and is dependent upon relative and charitably inclined friends for his support.
It is recommended that his name be placed on the pension roll at the rate of $20 a month.
