LARGER DEMAND IN FARM LABOR Employment Office Made Clearing House for This Section. The Mason City office ot the Iowa State employment service is experiencing a brisk demand foi [arm workers. The number of orders received to date is far in advance of the number received for Lhe same period last year, which indicates that farmers will ba hiring more men than in previous years. In order to fill these orders for farm hands with local unemployed men, the Iowa state employment office is asking .all experienced farm workers to register at the employment office located at 20 South Federal -avenue any morning between 8 and 12 and to keep their applications active by reporting at least once 'every 30 days. Farmers in need of help are urged to communicate with the employment office. There is no charge either to employer or em- ploye. Frank Ball, manager o£ the local office, reports a Marge inflow of transient farm workers from the southern drought areas and in order to keep local jobs for local men, urges that the employment office be made a clearing house for all work opportunities in this area. SCHOOL PATROL DEMONSTRATION GIVEN TEACHERS Arthur Krager, Principal of Lincoln, Outlines Program. The story of how Mason City's school boys' patrol operates was presented to the teachers in con- /ention here Friday by Arthur ICrager, principal of the Lincoln school. The talk preceded a demonstration of how the patrol operates, presented on the stage of the high school auditorium. The patrol, Mr. Krager pointed out, is sponsored by the Lions club of Mason City. ' "Safety is not a new subject nor is it a subject that requires a large amount o£ investigation to find something to teach," said Mr. Krager. "On the contrary, the topics to be taught and emphasized are the common everyday hazards. In fact, so common that we have in some instances lost sight of their importance. There are many phases of safety education one may deal with but the present day motor traffic offers a splendid opportunity for some good practical teaching in regard to the safety of the pedestrian. With this in mind I will present briefly a project that may be sponsored by any school, large -or small, that has a need for controlling the traffic of school children. Controls Child Traffic. "The school boy patrol is an organization that may adequately solve this problem because the purpose of the patrol is direct control of children crossing t h e street. Now suppose you have had an accident or several new accidents due to carelessness on the part of the children in where and when they cross the street coming to or goiiig home from school What happens? One tiling is sure to happen and that is you will be criticized for not having taught the children where and when to properly cross the street. Now this criticism may be just or unjust but nevertheless it's there. The time :p prepare for just such an emergency is now, and the school boy 3atrol is .the answer. "Now let me discuss with you the arocedure in setting up the patrol ,n your school. "First we want to know who shall serve on the patrol? If your school has grades from one to six then the sixth grade.boys will be asked to volunteer for this service. If you have grades seven and eight then these boys are the logical ones -to assume this responsibility. Each volunteer must have ;he written consent of his parents to serve. Each boy must be reliable and courteous. "Second, we must decide where the patrol is to do its service. This is decided by the amount of .raffle'· there is on. your streets near the school. Then the boys are placed on duty at the busiest Intersections. "Third, you will want to know low many patrol boys to place on duty at one intersection. This depends largely on the number of :hildren to be cared for at one time. If there are only a few children then one boy may handle all he work but if there are many children then there must be two boys to an intersection, Time Outlined. "Fourth, what time of the day shall the patrol be on duty? In he morning and at noon before school the boys must be on their respective corners 20 or 30 minutes before school is called and are .0 slay there until the last bell. At dismissal time the boys must be at their respective posts a few minutes before the children arrive : md are to remain on duly until practically all children h a v e crossed the street. "The fifth and most Important item in the organization of the school boy patrol is the duty the aoys are to perform. The patrol boys are not .traffic policemen. They are not to get out in the street to stop cars, but they are to stand on the curb and stop the children from crossing the street until they are sure the street 'is clear of all traffic. Then they either , signal the children to go across the street or cross the street with them. The Mason City chidlren have been taught to wait at the curb until the patrol boy has given permission to cross." · $20 From Pancake Supper.
