200,009 high school boys ot the Un
ited States were enrolled into the ro
scrve and rero placed upon tho
farms tc maintain and to harvest the
plantod crop.i.
Manifestly it Was unfair to the
farmers to ultttnpt to send to thorn
from the cltloi boys who knew very
little of country life and next to
nothing of farm practice. Endeavor
wan therefore mado to train the
boys sent t"t under the auspices of
the United States DoysJ Working Re
serve. Of the ?00,000 that Went 6ui
approximately :5,000 were trained
In high achooU and approximately
6,000 mori wero trained In centrajj
farm training camps located In of
near State Agricultural colleges.
With th, coming of peace the d&j
mands upon the Department of La
bor for each service as the high
school boys of the country can ren
der Is rather increased than dlmin
ished. M'. Hoover stated In his
great speech of November 12, that
60 per cent ot the burdon ot saving
Europe from rjarvatlon rests square
ly upon the Mioulders of the United
States and that North America must
export twrnty lUlllon tons of food
to Europe during the present and
coming y-ar. Therefore the United
States Doys' Working Reserve Is
summoned to redouble its energies.
No readjustment of labor from war
Industries to normal Industries, and
no supply from soldiers returning
from abroad, will begin to meet the
situation upon the farms. It must
bo borne In mind that we are to ship
abroad from three an done-halt to
four tlmo oui normM"shliJnt?nts t
food to Europe. In spite of the best j
that we nan do Mr. Hoover assures
us that at tat ten million pople in
Russia wl.l uliJiost certainly starve
during the present winter.
The Educational section of the Re
servo issui-d December 10 o series of
monographs wh'rh make up what is
known as tho ' Fnrm Craft Lessons."
These lesson u have -been prepared
by a great educator, Eugene Daven
port, dean of tht College of Agrlcl
ture, Unlvotblty of Illinois. Tho les
sons make a text In vocational edu
cation ot the ery highest quality,
nnd are remarkable in that thoy cov
er a field hitherto Inadequately cov
ered ,and that they have a simplicity
and directness about them, and that
thy breathe the spirit of a noble
patriotism that Is beyond all praise.
They aro an lustlttite In the ele
mental of fain practice, and they
mako nn excellent foundation for
tho prosecution of studies in agri
culture that ry naturally follow
In any carefully .considered course
of vocational training that relates to
farming. Dean Davenport has in
cluded within the body of the lessons
a simple und rufflclent and conven
ient biography.
Tho Depnttmmt ot Labor desires
to introduce this text into every high
school ot tho United States and ear
nestly hopes thai man ythpusands of
boys who urn unfamiliar with farms
will undertake the course. The course
is planned to tfgln in January and
to continue utll April; there are 29
lcssoB together with some material
that is to ba studied along with the
lesons, maltict: the equivalent of a
tota of 32 lessons. The fall sem
ester ends about the middle of Jan
uary and st hoc) men will then be
preparing their programs for the
spring sempster. Dy the elimination
of unessential stJdtes; by elimina
tion of uncthfiitial elements in es

boys will bu able to be released from
