Manpower Problem Complicated by Farm Jobs, Draft Boards f REQUIEM SUNG FOR LOMBARDO Funeral Held for Former Local Merchant Funeral services for Charlie Lombardo, 36, were held Thursday at Holy Family Catholic church with Father R.

Pallbearers were Cal Dwan, Tim Phalen, Joe Putli, Jack: Maroney, Edward Anderson and frank Pearce. The Meyer funeral home was in charge. Mr. Lombardo, a Mason City merchant for many years, died Sunday at the home of his daughter Mrs. Charles Caponi, Chicago, following an illness. Mason City's manpower problem will be furlher complicated next month when agricultural workers who have been employed at the Jacob E. Decker and Sons packing plant during the winter begin to nn;? P H c. re » gUlar r. £ar V 1 dutie f' accordingto Clay Cowan, director _ United States Employment* Service here. No difficulty in finding needed replacements was expected, however, according to Mr. Cowan, for there are men out of work on temporary layoffs from other industries who will be willing to fill the gap in the meat packing industry temporarily at least. Harry Helm, director of the employment office at the Decker plant, however, expected a more serious situation. About 130 agricultural workers have been cm- ployed by the plant during the winter. With selective service boards reclassifying 3-A men lo 1-A, it will depend on how large a quota is taken from the plant as to how serious the v condition may be. Women are filling in vacancies whenever possible but much of the work is not suitable for women employes, according to Mr. Helm. There is a considerable amount of trucking and transferring meat from coolers to storage, cars and trucks for shipping and this is too heavy a type of work for women. The plant is already experiencing difficulty in keeping up to a 5,000 hogs per day schedule. Mr. Cowan explained that em- ployes who have been layed off temporarily by the cement industry and building trades may go into the Decker plant for short time. The agricultural workers with limited deferments who are working at the Decker plant were taken last fall from the countryside around Mason City when selective service allowed them to work in industrial plants until March 1 or 15, whenever the farmer called them hack for 1914 work. About 2,000 agricultural workers will return to farms next month in the state, according to George D. Haskell. state war manpower commissioii director. Virtually all of the farm workers have been assisting meat packing and food processing plants which nave been operating at capacity 'Hie to the heavy marketing of ivestoek. Waterloo, Sioux City, OUumwa and Cedar Rapids face the bi"- gest recruiting problems to replace farm workers, Haskell said Estimates show that Waterloo and Sioux City each will be forced to find 600 replacements. Oltumwa 400 and Cedar Rapids 250. At Clinton, which he described as the most acute labor shortage area in Iowa, ISO farm workers now scattered through a number of war plants will create a problem when they return to the country because lack of available hoiisinjr facilities has prevented the importation of workers from other areas to relieve (he short- Haskell said the OUumwa packing plant hopes to fill the gaps by hiring more women. In Waterloo the packing plant expects to Lind replacements for most of the faCO farm workers, but further increases in production throughout the spring will create a demand for a steady upturn in plant personnel. In Sioux City it was believed some of the expected labor short- ige m the packing industry could )e overcome by stepping up the number of working hours The jacking industry at Cedar Rapids ears an acute labor shortage for 6 to 8 weeks in the spring, but WESLEY PLANS SPECIAL EVENTS Sunday and Monday Programs Announced Sunday and Monday will be busy days at Wesley church. At the morning service, 2 Boy Scout troops will be guests and will stand at attention when 10 service stars will be placed on the flag In addition, (he gold star of Duane Halsten will be attached.
