PAGE EIGHT. THE DAILY COURIER, UONNELISVILLE, PA. ·WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1918. MX ENLIST WOMEN FOR FARM WORK W CROP SEASON Jol»t Plan of "Out* Ctoera- nent Agencies to Solve I T labor Problem. CALLED ONLY IF I Etgbtnttn to be 3Ude ot Ihose g i .iraiUWe; ITnlnlag Carols to be £ XstaUteked for Thoie Tfithonl li- te* im the Lighter Farm Work. Cooperation by the Department of Agriculture and the woman's committee of the Council ot National Defense ·with the woman s division of the Um- terfSUtea .Employment Service ID sup- plTlag women, for farm wori, during tae war emergency was agreed upon at a conference of representatives of the three agencies concerned In Tjrierf, the division of the work calls for ti» ascertainment by the Department of Agriculture of the openings for women, m agriculture, the possible training of women for farm service by the women's committee of the Council ot National Defense, and the refUtraiion and placement of women. by tb« Employment Service through its woman s division. The following is a summary of the division ot-worfc agreed upon and the conclusions reached at the cun/er- I The -Department ol Agriculture will immediately ascertain through its 2,000 county agents in what Stmie* and for what work farmers want -women and to furnish, through its extension, service the lists of women who might be available as leaders if training camps for woman fsrm helpers were established. 2. The Department of Labor through its -woman a division and with the aid of the farm service division to register women for farm work and place them on .farms 3. The women s committee of the Council of National Defense to take up the Question of training camps for women the necessary eojucational and recruiting" propaganda, and welfare wovlr for women on farms It IT quite evident that it is unposiole to tak« a woman from the city who has never worked on a farm and send her to such work without naving given her an Idea ot agricultural tasks or tested her capacity for them. It wa* the concensus of opinion that until there is some definite information aa to farm-labor shonage it would be unwise to stimulate general interest in the question of placing women on farms There are, how- e/er, certain kinds of farm work, such as fruit picking dairying exx, in which women have been, engaged in some farming sections and experience 1 indicates tbat women might be used in thwe and other sections in (,-reater numbers The Department of Agriculture- Till furnish data as to the agricultural communities in which women, hove been and can be employed. II the use of women in agriculture in greater numbers than hertoCore is ultimately deemed adneable, some sort ot try-out and training~eainp acfft- tem should be established for tlw purpose of sitting the women applying for farm work and selecting those physically qnallAed and able to wori. without detriment to their health The Council ot National Defense probably is beet equipped to handle tots phase ct the womeB-m-aericaltnre pcoUem, m it would'have to be financed either ·by the sUtee ex their cotmeilx of de- feae*. Tne state eoancite, morsorer have branches concerned with the employment of women.
