WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NEED 4 MILLION FARMWORKERS /To Broadcast Appeals 'iforjVolunteers Soon Washington, (If) -- Agriculture will need a minimum of 4,000,000 emergency workers if food needs are to be met, the war food administration said Wednesday. This number is a million more than." volunteered for similar work last-year.- Losses of farm manpower to the armed services, plus farther migration of rural people to war industries, has cut agriculture's manpower supply to the lowest level of the war, the VVFA said. Appeals soon will be broadcasl for volunteers for emergency farm work.' Recruiting will be carried on by 12,000 local farm labor offices. The WFA's appeal will be directed -principally to city residents with a farm background no engaged in essential war activi ties. Reports reaching the \VFA indi cate that thousands of farmers o the 18 through 25 year old grou heretofore deferred as essentia agricultural have been drafted in · recent weeks as a result o£ a white house directive to the-selective service calling for induction of young farm workers. ' The loss of these men was said to be aggravating a food production' job already made serious by a lag in the output of labor-sav- ins farm machinery. Emergency- workers will be needed chiefly in harvesting vegetable and fruit crops, picking cotton, stacking peanuts, harvesting potatoes and in detasseling hybrid Mason City Policeman and 13-Year Old Globe-Gazette News Stories To Figure in Dickinson County Murder Trial Jan. 30 MEET STRONG NAZI DEFENSES Increase Activity as Snow Ceases in Italy Koine, (^--American .fifth arm patrols, increasing their activit as snow ceased falling on the Ita ian front, have bumped up agains strong German defenses, particu larly south of Bologna, alliec headquarters announced Wednes day.

S A r m y A i r Forces, (U.R) -- The United States still faces the greatest w a r - i n its history in the fa east, and Japan will still be "on her feet and fighting in 1946," ac cording to Lt. Gen. Millard F Harmon, chief of American army air forces in the Pacific. Appealing to the America home front for increased war pre duction, Harmon said in a radi broadcast Tuesday t h a t Japan'! main fighting strength has no yet been engaged and warned tha the war will still be "a long wa from ended" even when the ei emy's home islands are invaded Japan's biggest, best trained and toughest army--the Kwan- tung army--is still in Manchuria, he'said, and there can be no,peace in the Pacific until it has been beaten. "If every ship in the Japanese navy were sunk and the Kwan- tance of 10 or 15 feet, the occupants of the pursued auto opened fire, raking the windshield of the squad car with bullets. Varnum, leaning out the window, fired ave on our hands the biggest war ver fought. It will be bigger than all of Vorld war I. It will be bigger han a combination of all the wars ver fought in history up to 1941. t will take scores of thousands of American lives." Harmon asserted that American successes in the Pacific thus ar have "not seriously unjointed he Japanese war effort." The Japanese, he said, arc producing more than 1,500 planes a month and have been "studying" American Superfortress tactics in preparation for the coming battle of Japan. For the coming 12 months, Harmon had this forecast: We e x p e c t to be closer to Japan, drawing more tightly the noose and hitting the homeland and its fringes, not only with more B 7 29's, but w i t h bombers and , fighters of all types and all services -- both shore and carrier- based.

Women London, (fP)--A "battle of the sexes" developed in the house of commons Wednesday over the question of sending ATS--British equivalent of the WACs--over- seas with the men mostly in favor of keeping the girls at home and the women for sending them abroad. The main issue hinged on the temptations the girls would face. American-born Lady Astor, who led the women in the fight, asserted she had been informed "many of the girls at home would .be safer in a uniform abroad than in ordinary clothes at home." A member suggested that girls under 21, those married and those engaged be kept at home. In reply to this Lady Astor ! snapped "They would get engaged so quickly that it would be a danger." After 3 hours of debate Sir James Grigg, secretary for war, suggested some of the men were being "unnecessarily fearful as to th'e moral dangers." "These girls have got their heads screwed on all right," he declared.
