FARM LABOR MEN ADOPT
NEW PLANS TO SOLVE
Birmingham, Ala., July 23.-Farm
help specialists from the southern
States, in the Department of Agricul
ture's harvest labor conference held I
in Birmingham, adopted the following
as an outline of the campaign to be
waged until all of the South's big cot
tor, and food crops have been gather
Co-operation Letwveen fairmers andl
city people, to be brought about thru
co-ordlination of all agencies furnish
ing points of contact, with crop and
other agricultural programs to 'be
worked out as the combined result of
Use of all feasible labor saving de
vices andl imp~rovedI farm machinery.
Intelligent dlirection andI conserva
tion of labor to eliminate waste and
maintain highest efficiency.
Rearrangement, so far as possible, I
of the system of farm management,i
so as to keep labor employed profit- |
ably the whole year.
Provision for better living condi
tions on farms to make workers more
efficient and better satisfied.
Cooperation in exchange of labor
and implements between farmers.
Recognition that the work of the
farm labor specialisti is primarily an
extension effort and shouldl be organ
ically and intimately connected with
the agricultural extension service in
each state, so that other branches of
the extension service may be brought
into closer co-operation wvith farm la
The farm help specialists also
adopted a resolution urging the im..
portance of stabilizing farm labor by
providmig better houses andl *more
privileges for tenants and laborers,
andl calling for considleration of def
inite plans to eliminate losses caused
by shifting workers.
The specialists have returned to
their states to resume their work of
helping southern farmers meet the
conditions causedl by the transfer of
tens of thousandls of men from the
farms to the army and wvar indlustries.
It is expected that they will center
their efforts, this year at least, on
mobilizimg able bodaed city men to
help out, at usual wages, at p~eriodis of
greatest needl for farm help.
Prof. G. I. Christie, who taught in
the Alabama agricultural school at
Auburn, and who as asstaant to tho
Secretary of Agriculture represents
the Department in farm labor mat
ters, emphasized, in a talk to the spe
cialists, the importance of increasing
efficiency in the use of man power.
Speaking of the thousands of "one
mule farms" in the South, he said
Sthat present condlitions demand that
all men capable of managing farm
operations shouldI direct larger work
m ig forces of men, mules and machin
"Emergency help secured through
boys, women and men of the cities is
Iof great value," he said, "but this Ia
bor will not serve in the larger man
j agement of the land. Canaa, from its
Lg, S. C.
omparatively small poppulation, has
ent 500,000 of its best men to the
var, and two of three have been from
he farms. Despite this Canada in
917 produced 5 per cent more food
tuffs than in any previous year.
Vhat Canada has (lone the United
tates can and must do."
The specialists sent to the Secretary
f Agriculture, David F. Houston, a
elegram telling of the increased
ilantings of food crops in the South

Germany's great military strength
