Migrants come to the Midwest By J.D. WILSON Associated Press Writer Migrant workers have started moving into the Red River Valley along the North Dakota-Minnesota border in hopes of finding non-conlracted jobs, according to state employment officials. James Schneider, supervisor of rural manpower programs for the North Dakota Employment Security Bureau, said the mid-April arrival was unusual. "It is early but the same thing happened last year," Schneider said. "They appear to be people who are non-contracted workers who are in hopes of getting work in the sugar beet fields." Schneider said most workers Latimer wins in St. Paul ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - DFLer George Latimer blunted a comeback attempt by a former mayor Tuesday in winning election as mayor of St. Paul. Latimer, a 40-year-oW attorney and former University of Minnesota regent, defeated Independent-Republican George Vavoulis, who had served as mayor from 1960-66. Complete but unofficial results from the city's 160 precincts showed Latimer with 36,193 votes and Vavoulis with 33,984. Latimer succeeds DFL Mayor Lawrence Cohen, who decided not to seek reelection. Vavoulis, 65, is the last Republican to serve as mayor. After losing his bid for a fourth term in 1966, he served as state manpower services commissioner and also held several high posts in Ihe U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. DFLers came away with all seven city council seats. who have contracted their labor with North Dakota and Minnesota sugar beet plants generally arrive in late May. Robert Trevino, Minnesota Migrant Council, thought more workers would be moving up from the south in the near future. "We are expecting more migrants this year because of the situation in Texas," Trevino said. "It has been quite dry there. "There are already some migrants in the area," said the Moorhead based Trevino. "Most that are here are free wheelers (without labor contracts). Minnesota's rural manpower services said approximately 14,700 migrants moved into the Red River Valley during the 1975 growing season although not all of those persons were workers. Schneider was unsure who many migrants had moved into North Dakota but said they numbered "in the dozens. "It wouldn't reach 100 yet," he said. "They are just starting to trickle in." Zora Schulti, a migrant interviewer with the Minnesota Department of Labor, as also unsure how many migrants might have moved into the valley but pegged the number as "just a few." "A few workers are here but the work isn't ready for them yet," said Ms. Sbultz, as she prefers to be called. "Those who are here appear to be non-contracted." she continued. "Maybe they heard the planting was earlier up here." Ms. Shultz also thought dry weather in Texas and other southern migrant areas could have enticed the early arrivals to move north. The North Dakota employment official also thought federal grants may have made moving easier for migrants. Schneider said the federal government had recently authorized grants for emergency services, training and other programs for migrants.
