Fifty Girls Are Needed Says Levine David Levine, of the Manpower Cimmission, is about the busiest man in Warren wnat with getting men, women and girls at work benches in the local plants but today he has a new problem on his hands. "Warren stores are having a rush of Easter business and »eed help. They have appealed to Mr. Levine and he has passed out the word that help is needed, NOW. Fifty girls ar® wanted in the various stores of the town for the rush period and undoubtedly many of the places to be filled will prove permanent, so opportunity 5s rapping again LOUD and LONG. Applications should be made at once to the office of the Manpower Commission on 225 Pennsylvania »venue, west so that the girls can be placed at work next Monday anornlng. KNOWN IN WARREN Word has been received from Mrs. L. C. Stickel, of Fredericksburg, Va., formerly of Warren, that her brother, James Bucher, of Sunbury, is reported by the War Department to have died in a raid on Wilhelmshaven last fall. The young man, tail gunner in a Fortress was previously reported missing in action and this is the first word since concerning him. NEGRO WORKERS COMING Due to the fact that a time limit is on the erection of the new building for the Sylvania Electric Products, Inc., the contractor is importing a number of negro bricklayers and workers. Efforts to get men here have proved unavailing and now the matter of housing the colored men is bothering their employer. This city has no colored population and it may be that the men will be quartered in Jamestown and commute to Warren. President Asks Everyone To Grow Victory Garden I N HIS message to congress on Roosevelt said: “Much credit is due to the patriotic men and women who spent so mnch time and energy in planting the twenty million Victory Gardens in the United States and helped to meet the food requirements. It is estimated that abont eight million tons of food were produced in 1943 In these Victory Gardens To his press conference, held prior to sending this message, the president said a campaign would be made to get everyone to grow food in his back yard in 1944 and expressed the hope that production wonld be double that of 1943. I More than half the fresh vegeta ¡teles available to civilians of the ¡United States In 1943 were grown in Victory gardens. This fact is established by statis- !ücs prepared by U. S. department i of agriculture economists. The total i production of vegetables is estimât j ed to be 18,775,000 tons, from the j following sources: Large scale vegetable producers 6,322,000 tons [Local market gardeners 4,513,000 tons ¡Victory gardens on farms (5,000,000) 4,740,000 tons ! Non-farm Victory gardens (15,000,000) 8,200,000 tons • Thus Victory gardens are credit ed with 7,940,000 tons, or 42 percent of the total production; and since supplies for lendlease and the armed forces are all taken from the commercial production, it is obvious that Victory gardens contributed more than half the supply available to the civilian population. But if this half be considered on the basis of its nutritive value, to a people on a rationed diet in which ■ the normal proportion of vitamin- rich protective foods has been substantially reduced, then the contribution of Victory Gardens to the civilian food supply grows in importance. A considerable proportion by weight of commercially grown vegetables are not the green, leafy and red and yellow kinds, which are high in vitamins. On the contrary they are white vegetables, relatively low In nutritive value, but capable of enduring long delays in storage and shipment to distant markets, therefore lending themselves to large scale production. In Victory garden production white vegetables played small part. This can be established by records of seed sales, which prove that the favorite crops of the amateur agriculturists were beets, carrots, beans, tomatoes, lettuce, Swiss chard and sweet corn. All these rank high in the list of protective foods, which nutritionists contend are essential to buoyant health. Not only were they rich in vitamins, but their vitamins were not reduced by delays in marketing. Victory garden vegetables were carried directly to the table, where their superlative tenderness and fla-“ vor undoubtedly caused much greater consumption of these appetizing dishes than would have been the case had they been purchased in the market, with consequent improvement in the national health. In estimating Victory garden production, department of agriculture economists have been extremely conservative. Non-farm gardens were credited with growing 3.2 tons to the acre, and farm gardens with a little more. The total quantities assigned to these two classes were calculated by estimating the average size of the plots cultivated. While the department credits non­ farm Victory gardens with a smaller production per acre than farm gardens, field workers in this campaign generally agree that the contrary is true; that town and city gardens are more thickly planted, and more intensively cultivated, and on the average give a higher yield for the space used. In 1943 the home gardener purchased twice as much seed as in 1942, but that would have given them only 38 percent more than was used by the market gardeners, from which they are admitted by official estimates to have produced seventy-six percent more food than the professionals.

For your post-war planning of living or doing business *in a war-1 boomed area, you can, Dr. Hauser has found, generally figure that if a county has shown strong growth! from 1920 to 1940, its chances of holding wartime population increase, or of making comeback after! wartime decline, are good. But if growth from 1920 to 1940 has been small, or has fallen off the county will have difficulty in holding wartime increase 1 Buy War Bonds Now
