MASON CJTY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 3 ·§ 1937 THREE LARGER DEMAND IN FARM LABOR EXPECTED HERE State Employment Service Office Is Urging Registration. The local office of the Iowa State Employment service is an ticipating a larger demand than in previous years for farm workers, according to Frank Ball, manager. This is evidenced by the number of farmers who are already making- arrangements for their help. T h e f a r m placement service is one of the most important divisions of the Iowa State Employment service and in order to be able to fill the demand tor farm hands, Mr. Ball has urged all men interested in farm work to do the following: 1. Register at the employment office. Registration hours, 8 a. m. until 12 noon. 2. Keep application cards active by reporting at least once every 30 days and more often during the hiring season. 3. Notify the office immediately ot any change in address, telephone number, or if you find work yourself. Mr. Ball states tliat the large per cent o£ calls for farm hands are for middle-age single men with quite a few calls for married couples without children and fewer where separate buildings are provided. Farmers have been urged to place orders now for their future needs in order that the office may be able to send the right man for the job. The Iowa State Employment office is situated at 20 South Federal avenue in the Bagley-Beck building.
