Migrant Laborers Bring New Problems for /owa 12,000 TO SEEK MUSIC HONORS State Contest Will Be Held in 5 Iowa Cities Charles City, (/P)—More than 12,000 talented young lowans from 600 high schools will vie for musical honors at 5 state contest sites April 24-26. The contest cities and the number of participants expected at each are: Boone, 3,500 to 4,000; Spencer 2,500; Independence 2,500; Mus- souri Valley 2,000; Washington 2,000. The contests are sponsored by the Iowa High School Music association of which Supt. P. C. Lapham of Charles City is president. "Those who are privileged to enjoy these events will hear thousands of Iowa's finest youth in a public demonstration of their musical talents when trained to the finest degree hy skilled directors and teachers," Lapham said. Contestants in the 5 state events are those among 25,000 Iowa high school musicians who won superior ratings in preliminary contests at 25 cities last month. The state contests will get under way at some of the contest points Thursday, April 24, and the others at 8 a. m. Friday, April 25. Continuing through Saturday, April 26 there will be contest sessions beginning at 8 a. m., 1:30 p. m. and 7:30 p. m. daily. These contests are multi-sided affairs with competition going on at from 2 to 6 points in each contest city simultaneously. There will be large group events —glee clubs, choruses, orchestras and bands—at all of the cohtesl sites this year. These large group events had been eliminated during the war years due to the transportation shortage and last year the band and orchestra competitions were confined to 2 contest points. Schools will compete in classifications, according to enrollment, but in many events 2 or more classifications of schools are grouped together. There are 35 solo events, both vocal an'd instrumental, as well as group contests. Goal of the contestants is to achieve a, division I or superior rating from the judges. This rating is given for an outstanding performance which is the best conceivable in the event and the class and type of contest. Division n ratings are given for a fine piece of work which is above average, division III ratings for an average icrformance, and division IV for a jelow average performance. Supt. Lapham points out, however, that ihe awards represent only one phase of the music program in Iowa schools. "The contribution made by the Iowa High School Music association to the appreciation of the finest in music—both from the stand- joint of participation and that of istening, is a large one," he said.

MUST BE GIVEN PLACE TO LIVE Co-Operation Needed to Provide Facilities Ames—Specialty crops growers, Iowa industrialists and many farmers who once relied on the robin to mark the.return of spring now watch for the coming of migrant workers. The reason, says John Fitzsimmons, head of the farm labor office at Iowa State college, is that lowans in dozens of counties across the state must now depend on migrant help for summer emergency jobs. Already the flow has started into the state with arrival of the first Texas Mexicans reported at the Ferris nursery in Hampton last March. Through the rest of April the flow will continue. This new dependence on the migrant worker started in the war years and by necessity has carried on since, Fitzsimmons says. The migrants bring essential willing hands to do the work in nurseries, beet fields, truck farms and canning factories. But they also bring new problems and responsibilities which lowans already are working hard to solve. "The time is past," Fitzsimmons points out, "when the migrant worker comes for a few days, is bedded down wherever space permits and is left to drift around the state with the season." For one thing, the supply of migrant Mexicans which lowans must have is now too large. The exact number used is not known, but the figure runs into thousands. Adding to the problem, more and more of these workers are bringing their families. During the war the pressure of food demand meant taking care o£ the migratory worker with the best means at hand, Fitzsimmons says. Now the responsibility is ours to supply a decent place to live, to see that educational facilities for their children are provided, to make adequate medical facilities available and to provide facilities for proper sanitation. At the Ferries nurseries in Hampton part of the 30 Mexican families employed there live in a new ranch-type house built last fall and located at the edge of a wooded area where the children may run and play at will. Others of the Hampton families live in a Boy Scout camp building which was taken over by the Ferris company. A public park is located across the road. Still others live in a rented house in town. The plan is working out so successfully that 2 more of the new type structures will be built this fall. Farmer owners like Luis Lewerke who grows beets, carrots, onions and other truck crops near Crystal Lake, are meeting their responsibilities to the migrant worker by setting up small housing units of their own. In addition to giving attention to the recreation, health and living conditions of the workers, lowans also are setting up machinery for routing them to their seasonable jobs. The workers move about, the state with the season, Fitzsimmons says.. They start first with the nurseries, move on to the truck crops, next to the canning factories and back to the nurseries for fall work before cold weather sets in and they again head south. To give the migrant worker the security of having a job all through the season, and to avoid the problem of his drifting through the state in search of work, co-operation of employers is necessary. In general the Mexican migrant comes to Iowa because he likes the climate, the wages and the people for whom he works. When given a chance, Mexican families have proved an asset to the communities in which they live. The money they earn is spent in the towns in which they work.

Kuox reported this week that 58 per cent or $780,746.56 of the total taxes to be paid in the county, had been paid by April 1.
