CHURCHES TO AID LONELY SHEEP SHEARERS OF WEST The bleat of the sheep oh the backbone of the continent calls men to the mountains. On high nplands from the Canadian' border to Mexico, in lonely and Inaccessible places, one of the most romantic examples of the country's migrant worker — fhe sheep shearer—plies his trade. TTnheard 1 of though he Is to thousands of. his fellow workers, It was for him that the-Immigration regulations of three countries—Canada, the United States end Mexico—were modified during the war. This permitted freedom of movement to many hundreds of this .strange .craft, and the ( means of employment to thousands In ' factories and stores.. Yet, for all his importance in the ranks of the nation's great Marching Army of the Employed, what sort of -life does this man lead? The,migrant fruit packer, or w heat harvester, or farmhand, or lumberman often roams Inland through cities and the congested spots of civilization. . But the sheep shearer, by the nature of his trade. Is cut off from such influences. Through a survey of the nation's migrant labor now being made by the Interchurch World Movement, it is Buprgested that for men of this class relief'may be afforded through churches In outlying districts. For social nnd other purposes these men, with proper co-operation by church bodies, coVld tunke use of mnn.y of the facilities without wliich they 'are doomed to a of square.

By meo.ns of tho Interchurch Worl'd Movement we can see where the Methodists are, and where the Baptists are. We cari'see the general outline of . their forces, their present status in this great world struggle, dud may also have some.
