Tlx' romniissiomT of agriculture is making oxt inordinary efforts to furnish to Vermont farmers farm labor for the cominf; .season. There are in the cities and largo towns of Vermont many boys between the aes of 10 and 20 years who should be available for work ou Vcrmout farms. The department of agriculture, through its labor ajrent, F. II. Bick fonl, j-roK-jfies to co-operate with the ftate department of edueation in lo e:tt inti, training, sorting and distribut ing these boys. The commissioner of eilin-.'ition has placed at the disposal of the department of agriculture the Tlici;dr N. Vail agricultural school and farms at Lyndon Center,. This is to be known as Camp Vail, and is to be a training camp for boys enlist ing iu the service of Vermont. Through the principals of the local high schools the need of frm labor is to 1 e put before the boys, and a rep resentative of the Vail school is to speak before the students of every larv'e high school of the state. When the boys of Vermont learn of the vital iced, it is believed that a large number will offer their services to the state and to the country. These in charge of this proposition realize that not all boys can be efficient at farm work. It is, therefore, pro posed to take those boys who offer their services to the Vail school at Lyndon ( '-liter for a period of two weeks. Here the boys will be tried out. sorted, and in a small measure trained for farm work. They will be under the eyes of the instructors for two weeks. Iur 'vj this time they will be carefully studied and teted by actual farm work. A certain amount of instruc tion will be given them and. most of all. the need for their best and most conscientious effort this summer will be put before them. It is nut cpected that these boys will be skilled farm laborers, but it is believed that boys who show signs of ambition t work, and a certain hand iaess :it farm operations can be se lected ami mad" available for Vermont ! tarms. I'poii tin period at placed in service among the farmers of the state by the state labor agent llhroueh the country agents, or will be Id held at their homes in reserve for fann I services later on. If the boys of Vermont will prove eiji.al fo their opportunity for service, a'.' if the fanners of the state will take these boys iipi.m their merits, and will try to help in the project, it will b" io.-.-ibl to utilize in the produc tion of food a labor force that would f,l herv, ise be idle.
