, APRIL 8, 1913 Enact Program On Farm Labor In California SACRAMENTO, CallT. (UP) California is taking cniwuciicv ac- IIOM lo give iiij farmers ciiouj-li labor to produce another bumuiM' toad cro]) in 194:). By overwhelming vote. Die California IcgishuiR' enacted Into law n slate food and fiber net, Biviiitf n cuiiiidl of seven farmers nioacl powers in recruiting and jJlaciijff /arm laftor. Gov. Earl Wnr- '''•n, who culled Uu 1 special sc.sslon to roiistili'r (lie emergency legislation, sailed the bill nnd .sanctioned a temporary setup until Hie new iiRency becomes officinl in June. West Coast fanners have despaired uf ndequsiie federal help on labor problems because of n conflict umoiiB federal agencies involved in the unrleiillm-dl picture. California agricultural leaders have long protested that uniform J-egit- Inltniis Issued In Washington, I). C., .seldom solve problems in the highly-developed rich lands ot the state's interior valleys. CriliiMzrcl 'Iteil Tape' Passage of the funii net followed. a barrage of highly - critical resolutions against federal agencies and "red tape." The act gives the Governor authority lo appoint .seven farmers lo the farm manpower council, representing (lie agricultural brandies of. citrus fruits, fruits other than citrus dairy products, livestock, field crops, truck crops ami cotton. All are. nun-paid and will advise a state farm production director .also niuncd by the Governor, who will receive not more than $10,000. The program is aimed to help the dirt fanner from start lo finish. The council can- set up local comity committees, p:iy part of the salaries of county farm directors, make contracts with private, public ami federal agencies to expedite labor recruiting. The general purpose includes recruiting and allocating of farm labor, co-ordinat- ing anil planning transportation and housing, providing food for farm labor, helping farmers obtain farm implements and necessary repairs, and help any pri- .inary producer of farm products to .secure labor. The state will be divided into regions to permit full local participation in the program. t'miihasi'/.es Slate Kffnrls State Director of Agriculture William Cecil, at 30 one. of the youngest farming leaders in the nation, pointed out lhat ••the, program is a nev; departure in the field of solutions to the farm labor problem, but it is based on the sound premise that farmers know best wha.1 they need and local participation brings the best results." Leaders of all farm groups met in .Sncramemo with legislative representatives in wofit out the bill. The purpose was not to Conflict with federal directive;:, but' to take up state effort where the federal plan left off. The emphasis will be on local recruiliiiR in schools, clubs, business firms, public agencies and oilier sources of potential labor. Tile act included an appropriation of 1,500,000 to. get the plan in cperatjon. The farm council will decide ho\v much money to spend in carli county in assisting local officials with the new program.

Uncle Sam is also on Hie Irall— trying lo track down long blond Iresscs lo ut.o in Army and Navy uealhcr instruments. Tlie .icnrcli is far train simple— for the hair 1ms to be al least 14 Inches long, naturally blond, straight, anil untouched by hoi ii'ons or waving machines. Any blonde who can nil the bill should send a snip to Jullcii Frlra and Sons in Baltimore, Md. HuL judging from recent surveys it isn't aoinj; lo roil in by the barrel. A newspaper reporter roamed Broadway for more than five hours —hanging nrauncl beauty sho|js, five and tens and other places where blonds are known to congregate. "I've seen a lot of blonds," said Ihe owner of :i Mlb sirecl Ijenuly shop. "But r haven't seen a natural blond in two years." Eighteen-year-old Sylvia cnsher of Brooklyn looked like n good bnt. ivilh a of 15 inch locks. "I've never bleached it." she said proudly, "never used hot irons lit the last two years. Of course I'll donate some of it," But she'd forgotten one tiling, it was naturally curly. The government will just have lo face the disillusioning fact that most blonds wear their hair seven to eight inches long. It's curly, or made that way will) irons nnd machines, and it's almost, always bleached or "ch'einicnlly ' rinsed.
