PAGE EIGHi 1 . THK DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVUJLiB, PA. MONDAY, MARCH 4, 1918. MEN OF THE TOWNS MUST FURNISH THE FARM LABOR SUPPLY - Tlwy Keed to Get Behind to Provide a Force to Raise Crops. MANY ARE EXPERIENCED -1»~ F»nu lYork »»d Should Apply Ihetr Knowledge ana Ability to Help Supply Food, tke Most Tl(»l TTar Je*4; Skomid Start Early. interested In a cablegram received at the national headquarters of th« national headquarters of trie American Red Cross from Major James H. Perkins, American Red -Cross commissioner to Europe, which says: "Every American soldier now entering the trenches carries an American Red Cross comfort kit containing ttnvel, shirt, ·writing paper, pencil, soap, handkerchiefs, socks, mirror, and tobacco. The number of kits can not "be stated but the fact that every soldier has one means that the -work i done by American -women is a big comfort to the soldiers now on the firing lino. This fact should .be a solace to the. American women who have made them as -well as to the soldiers. More kits wanted with socks and tobacco." y !' .Just for the moment, suppose ice strip the fajm-labor problem o£ every patriotic consideration and merely to emphasize a "point look at it, indi- Yltfually and as cities, from an absolutely elfish standpoint, -writes Cl;ir- ·nce DuBoss ot the United States Ic- jxartaient of Agriculture. We knorr tl» -world need of food, ' brought about by the war. It is ua- v necessary to recapitulate that situation. And the farmers are planting ana wiir plant the necessary acreage increwes of food crops. But these crops jnust be cultivated and harvested, and many thousands ot farm laborers -are required for that work. There Is a shortage of farm lalor. The factors causing that condition are also'understood; cessation for three years o2 th« European " immigration _ which'"formerly gave us an armr of 'new~l«bof~eicb.~ year, the attraction to thousands o£ txna workers ot higher wages in munitions plants and other war Industries, and the response o£ farm workers to th« call of the colors. But, notwithstanding the shortage of farm labor, the nation contains an i abundant supply of man power o f ! firm experience and adaptability. It is a question of gettmg that potential farm labor applied to the farms when and iKfcere'tbe need is greatest. The farm-labor problem is difficult --one of th« most difficult ot our \rar- igrtcultural problems--and yet there is a remedy at hand, a measure possible in every section and one .that will solve the local problem in most sections. It is simple enough if you will do it. You can solve it--700, member oi half a dozen boards of directors or president of the civic league or leading spirit in the chamberof commerce. You, who persisted in any new local project until the dream was realized, or organized the movement" that cleaned un your city politically or otherwise, or put over a bond issue for city improvements, or headed the Red Cross'orTJberty Loan campaign. You are a man nrho does things. You can do much in serving the farm labor problem. You will do it for patriotic reasons entirely, oecause you know v/e can't win the war without food. But also, it is to your individual personal interest to do it--for to the extent your section doesn't produce its food thds year, to Just that extent your .--ectoa may be siort of food to tat. In most American towns, one-fourth of the men have had some farm ex- perienc--were raised on farms and have worked* more or less on farms. Then they moved to town and engaged m other activities. Every one of these Jafin- who is not engaged in a work that contributed to war winning should arrange to apply his. aKrlcul- tural experience and ability in a way that will help supply a vital' war need--food.- In very few communities will the local labor shortage be in excess ot the number of town re*idents of farm training who can go to work on the farms in that section and save the crops if necessary. And they will do it if their employers--the business men erf the town and cities, tho hustlers, the lire wires, the men who put Uuir shoulders to tbe wheel in that tows and put things over, wether it was building a styscraiier or boosting the oaseball team--if these business men win organize to that end. It may be necesary, as was done in some places last year, to close busi- nos houses or allow most of the employees to lay off, during the harvest rush. That would be a temporary inconvenience to the business man, to be sure--but it is much better than, having the Hun close his establishment--and loot it Poll your employees now, get your chamber ol commerce to take notion, see that all the employers of your city get busy; arrange to clvc leaves of absence to yonr employees who have had farm^experince, so they may help produce the Jood needed to Insure victory. Get in communication with the county demonstration agent of your county, -with the'local office of the United States Department of Labor If there is one in year city, or write the United States Department of Agriculture or your state" agricultural college or tbe farm'help specialist of th* Department of Agriculture in your state. ·jTMt' remember that every man ot farm experience, not now engaged in war'work, can help produce the food that will win the war. So arrange It that your employes will have that privilege.
