THE BURLINGTON FREE PRESS AND TIMES: THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1919. ME SALVATION ARMY WANTS $13,0011,000 Amount to Bo Raised in Next Week's Campaign Already Ap portioned for Work in the Com munities Where It Will Come from In connection with tho Salvation Army campaign to ralso $13,00O,(KX) during tho tvcek of Mny 10-20, Burlington being asked to contrltuito 533000 of tho Bum, It may bo of Interest to itusn how this amount was determined upon as tho goal toward which tho Salvation Army would strlvo In Its drive. It Is stated that tho total amount called tor from tho nation represents tho sum all tho budgots throughout tho country, for purposes of administration, tho Uni ted States Is divided Into provinces, each Under tho command of a provincial ofllccr, who reports directly to tho national head quarters of tho Salvation Army In Now York. Each province, which mny contain ono or several States, Is subdivided Into divisions, with divisional officers report ing" to provincial officers. Tho divisions In turn, aro composed of corps, which are tho actual local branches of tho Solvation Army under corps commannd ers. Each' corps, guided by Its knowledge of local conditions, has determined the o,mount necessary to carry on tho work Inrthabcommunity. The amount so deslg riated has been scrutinized on the ono hand'by the superior officers at divisional and provincial headquarters, and on tho other by citizens of tho community not it part of tho Salvation Army, but knowing the-army and tho community. Adding to the amount In each commun ity tho necessary Items which represent tho local community In maintaining na tional hoadquarters and certain phases of work which are not purely local, the amount to b asked for has been deter mined. In this way, tho funds raised In each communltynre. actually to bo expend ed in that community for local service to tho peoplo there, except tho small percent age which goes to tho national work. Tho very citizens who mako the gifts will be In a position to watch tho wisdom of tho expenditures. Thus it will be seen that local needs, de termined locally, huvo been tho govern ing fnctor In determining tho amount to be raised for the Salvation Army work. WHAT ON15 MOTHER DOES Mrs. P.

Without question tho largest deal In tho confectionery lino ever consummated In tho Slate of Vermont was put through yesterday afternoon when John Walker of tho Vermont Milk Chocolate rompany, acting for the local company and Its ally, the Massachusetts Chorolato company or Boston, completed arrangements with I.ieut. J. I.oroux, a representative of tho Belgian wholesale confectionery firm of I.eroux Brothers, whereby .both the Vor mon and Massachusetts companies turned over every pound of chocolatoand cocoa on hand in their Immense storehouses for im mediate shipment to Belgium and agreed to run their respective plants night and day until further notice to supply Belgium concern with the amount of confectionery It wants. Tho now contract mean3 mil lions of dollars to Burlington and Boston companies. Several hundreds of thousands of dol lars worth of chocolate and cocoa were stored In the new warehouse of the local concern, and all last night a retrlmcntr of employes worked at full blast loading In the boxes of chocolate and tnc barrels of cocoa Into freight cars to bo sent to New York to-day. There will be several cars and they will go by special train In order to mako connections with a boat which Is to sail on the "Otli of this month. Tho new agreement will stimulate tho production of the chocolate products, es pecially cako chocolate of all varieties for oating purposes, at tho local concern as never boforo and will mean that a consid erable number of added employes will bo WON'T WORK ON FARMS Returned Sold lorn Shy at Kmployitient of That Kind (From tho Brooklyn Eagle) The United Suites Employment Serv Ivo, organized for tho relief of the lnbur market by providing employment for re turning soldiers and others, reports suc cess In all phases of Its work except sup plying men to work on farms. Reports from CO cities show that th nuirtber of men without work decreased during tho tho post week and the number of men registered as looking for jobs In SC of thoso cities wns reduced from 125,000 to 07,000. Many considerable sections of tho country report tho labor market as tak ing caro of Itself, but the only place In which men arc wanted but cannot be found Is on tho farms. Work on tho farms suffers many of tho disadvantages which mako domestic servlco unattractive and tho farmers arc mooting with practically the samo diffi culties as housewives in cities. In tho old days tho "hired man" was iwirt of tho family. He shared practically all of the privileges of tho farmer's sons and If thero were long hours or especially strenuous work ho shared these with his employer or his employer's sons. There was no such thing as an eight-hour, or a 10-hour, or even a 12-hour day, hut labor for boss and hand alike was regulated by tho power f endurance and the mltfga tlons and alleviations wore shared by all allko. It was a hard life but It was free from discriminations; a farm job was the best ono In sight for mo3t hired men and It was In the main a contented life. Access lo the cities and to shops with short hours has changed all that. The character of farm work makes longer houra necessary than nre required In shops and tho work Involves something nt the loss of social caste which sends girls by the thousands Into shops when they might bo better paid ami better fed In kitchens. Tho lato Colonel Roosevelt was at one time very much Interested In a campaign for Improvfng tho social conditions of life among farmers, with the idea of keeping on tho farms the boys and girls who aro born there. The need now is much greater than when he advocated tho plan. The demand fo- fcoi Increased greatly during tho war and tho need for labor win met In part by camps of high school boys and of "farmer ettes." Of course, that artificial supply cannot he maintained Indefinitely. Ma chinery can cut down tho need for farm labor a good ileal, but some way must bo found to make living on' tho farm at tractive for- the men who are needed to run the machines and to supplement them.

While in the latter country Mr. Walker will meet tho olliclals of tho Lorous Brothers' concern and will draw ufl a con tract covering their wants. President Walker expects to transact considerable buslners In Franco relativo to chocolate and cocoa contracts, and possibly may venturo Into Italy on tha same mission. Ho expects to be gono sev eral months and will be accompanied by William Cox of tho Cox Confectionery rompany of Boston, another one of tha battery of live allies engaged In tho samo business. Announcement was made public yester day by Mr. Walker of the coming to Burlington of tho Miller Confectionery company, another ono of tho allies of tho Vet mont Milk Chocolate company. This concern will employ about :m hands and will bo located about September 1 In tha new addition which Is being built on tho present plant of the Vermont Milk Choco lato company.
