GOVT REPRESENTATIVE TO AID
BACK TO THE LANDERS
Did you ever hear remarks such as
"I wish I could get away from
Chicago, where kiddies could have
some place to play besides the
"I don't know what we will do il
the price of food keeps going up. 1
wish I had a little piece of ground
where I could raise a few things my
self." "I am sick and tired of the city.
Oh, -if I had never left the farm!"
Very likely you have said the same
thing yourself many times, or you
have friends who have said it. If so,
read the rest of this and you will see
what the government is doing to sat
isfy these longings. -
Mr. Farmer, how often have you
said: "I don't know what I am going
to do about farm help. I get a man
today, perhaps he is all right, per
haps not In either case I muBt pay
his wages. Sometimes I get a good
man. He stays with me two or three
months and then he goes on some
place else. Then I have the same
trouble over again, and like as not

farmer and the dissatisfied married
man together. A booth will be oc

a government official will be present
to talk to farmers who might be in
terested. Married men, with or with
out children, who wish to go to the
farm, especially those with experi
ence, are invited to come to the office
at '845 S. Wabash av, and. register.
The government will then bring the
farmer. and the worker together for
interview, where they can make all
" "Back to the land' has been ridi
culed, but if properly handled," says
Dr. Prentis, "it is a good step in the
right direction and will accomplish
wonders. The government is inter
ested in both the farmer and the
worker, and this arrangement is in
tended for the benefit of both par
ties." The office will be open to registra
tion every day from 9 a, m. to 4:30.
