A list of occupatiis regarded as
ion-essential to the winning of the
war has been compiled by the Laurens
County community labor board and
men engaged in the occupations men
tioned would do well to apply as soon
as possible to W. C. Byrd, Laurens,
and seek work where it will count to
wards the winning of the war.
The movement to replace men with
women In non-ess.ential work is rapid
ly gaining Impetus and it 14 the wise
man who begins at once to look
about. It Is not intended nor desired
by the labor board that, men quit to
day their present positions If they are
.working in a non-essential, as it is
realized that a sudden cessation of
work would cause confusion and con
gestion. The movement is to be grad
ual, but It is to be ptished forward
sleadily and It is hoped that no great
tagnation nor confilsioll will result.
