ONE SOLUTION IS OFFERED
Good Homes, Fair Wages and Some privileges Will Attract Desirable Men Who Understand Farm Work. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Washington.—The supply of perman ent farm lahor—note the word perman ent will not be assured In many sec tions of the country, and on some farms, at least, in every section of the country, unless more attractive living conditions are offered the families of hired hands on farms. War conditions cause a farm labo» ' problem that can be solved only by I Emergency methods. Throughout the | nation communities will solve their ] war problems of farm labor shortage ' by utilizing as temporary farm help town volunteers and high school boys— . by diverting to agricultural activity man power that would not and could Cot be so used except In a real emer gency. But the town men of farm ex perlence who go to the fields thlf Spring and summer and fall will be actuated solely by patriotism rather than the financial return of the undertaking. They are going back to town as soon be their wnr work on farms Is finished. And, while their services are vastly ! (raluable from a war standpoint, thej' i mre not helping at nil to solve the prob Jem of permanent farm help. But the man who expects to work on a farm steadily, year In and year out. Is pro foundly Interested In the question of housing, living conditions and net re muneration for farm work as compared with town work. Provide Good Home» The attitude of thousands of married men who are skilled farm workers, who have left the country to find town employment, but who will return to (farm work permanently provided farm jiving conditions are comparable In or Jdlnary comforts to lliose In town, la expressed In this letter recently pub lished In a Texas paper: ■ "I am sending In my view of the farm labor problem. I have been try ing to get a job on the farm the last Month ; still trying to do so. I can find | plenty of jobs for a single man ... 1 but the farmers so far as I have found ■ have no tenapt houses, or If they hare one It would not make S good stable. Most of the fanners that I have found will not permit a farm hand to raise · ganlen or chickens or hogs or own a cow or horse, and the prevalent pay Is Insufficient to support a family un der such conditions. I believe If the farmers would build comfortable houses and either pay better wages or give more privileges, It would be the city man calling for help Instead of the farmers." I There are many evidences of aB In creasing desire on the part of men iMth families, now living In towns and Cit ies but with experience as skilled farm workers, to go back to the country. They left the farm because they be lieved they could make more money, get more satisfaction out of life, give more pleasures and opportunities to their ! families In town.

TRENTON, Way 10:—State Com missioner of Education Calvin N. Kendall today directed a communica tion to all city school superintendents and supervising principals of munici palities of over 10,000 population in forming them that Governor Edge is anxious that they should be acquaint ed with the provisions of the reform election legislation passed at the lut session of tho legislature, especially as it relates to the employment of school teachers on election boards. The governor wants to bring the mat ter to the knowledge of the teachers, both male and female, who are citi eens and above twenty-one yea re of age, in order that an opportunity may be given them to volunteer for serv ice. Those desiring to volunteer for this service are advised to send their names to the superintendent or the ι supervising principal of the schools. ! It le the desire also of the execu- | tive that a list of these names shall i be eent to the office of the commis sioner of education in order that they may be submitted by him to the re spective county election boards who participate in the selection of the dis trict board members. For the purpose of encouraging: school teachers to serve on the dis trict boards, which is permitted tin der the law passed last winter, chang ing- the method of selecting election machinery In order to put a stop to election frauds in certain sections of the state, the governor has enlisted the aid of the Department of Public Instruction in the task of f am I liar i* ing school teachers throughout the state with the provisions of the new statute. "Leading educators throughout the state agreed when the bill was pend ing in the legislature that it would not be advisable to draft teachers on the election boards," mid a statement «sued from the governor's office on this subject. "that is, make their services mandatory, and this feature was made permissive in the measure that takes the making' of election boards out of the hands of political leaders and puts it up to the court·. In order to secure the benefit of the naming of as many school teachers as find It possible to volunteer, how ever, Commissioner of Education Calvin N. Kendall has sent the fol lowing letter to superintendents and supervising principals of all citla· of over 10.000 population in New Jer sey." Then followed the letter sent bf the commissioner of education to th· district superintendent· and prtaoi pale.
