the camp will have facilities for
about 100 families temporarily in
this area .to harvest asparagus,
cherries and other crops.
“The expected shortage of farm
labor has resulted in an intensive!
effort to recruit students and older‘
workers to replace those now in
the armed domes and war indus-l
tries,” Paddock said. “We are coop

service to provide living quarters
for harvest workers and are making
