Harris Manager n the Hope Office of the Arkansas State Employment Service. Pay rates are from 94c to 51.28 per lour for experienced workers and 4c and 76c per hour for helpers, for orty hour weeks and plenty of over- ime— transportation is furnished from he worker's home to the point of ssignment. Pay j s based naxiimim rate established the the — . .- ,^, *-«j«*»uiioinji4 y e schedule of wages for each occupa- ion at Pearl Harbor. Thc skills needed include: Boilermakers, Coppersmiths, Electricians, Instrument Makers, Gas Cutters and Burners, Machinists, Ordnance Men Pipe Fitters, Sheet Metal Workers and many other types of skilled workers, both journeyman and helpers. U is felt that there arc many em- ployes in private industry who will bi> glad to help our country by assisting in recruiting those among their own employees who are qualified for thus vitally ini|iort<int duty. Secretaries of local Civil Service Boards are located in Fayettcville Fort Smith, Harrison, Hot Springs Jonesboro, Little Rock and Texar kana. "All qualified mechanics and trad helpers who want to do their par m the defense of our country an urged to get full information abou these jobs at Pearl Harbor from thci nearest Civil Service Board Secretary or from this office," said Mr Harris. "Because time is such an important factor in completing the ful quota of workers called for, it is im- Jortant that those qualified call to :ill m necessary application forms mmediately," Numbcr 4 AAA Office Ready to Take Applications The local Triplc-A office announced that it is now ready to tafc» applications for the Agrteuttufta- tonseVva- tion Payments on the 1941 Program Farmers who expect to receive this check should call at the Triple-A office some time in the near future and sign their application for payment. SPG Workers Buy U.S. Bonds $2,500 Worth Sold at Government Project Here In the past few days more than 52,500 has been poured into the coffers of the fund for Defense by employees of the Southwestern Prov- ng Ground in purchases of Defense Bonds and Stamps, a tabulation of sales at the project disclosed Tues- nn\' day.

GetYour Share o/~ U-S.Defenie BONDS-STAMPS Mr. Harry Scott, in charge of sales on the project, said that the response had far exceeded expectations, especially during the season when most of thc employees on the project were busy with shopping and plans for Christmas. Several sales have been made to entire groups of workers and one operator of a concession in the area combined patriotism with the spirit of Christmas and presented each of his seventy employees with a dollar Defense Stamp. Response has been as gratifyin among field workmen as among th office workers with every person 01 thc project apparently determined t do his bit. One foreman of a field cicw walked into sales headquar tors with a list of his entire cre\ of 15 workmen who had pledged to purchase a Twenty five dollar Bond each week. No sales campaign is being conducted in the area other than thc announcement that Bonds and Stamps were available on the project, but the deman dhas been so much greatei than anticipated that several times the supply has been exhausted anc prospective buyers forced to wait until more could be obtained.
