On Tuesday Mrs. Henry B.
Thompson talked to the girls about
the Women's Land Army. She ex
plained how in England women
have taken men's places in the
fields and have harvested the
crops. Last year the plan was
tried in America. Units of work
college girls were

sent out to live in groups under a
leader and chaperon. They were
hired out by the farmers in the
neighborhood, and worked by the
day doing practical farm work.
The farmers testify to the excel
lent service rendered by the
healthy youngwomen who will obey
orders and are not afraid of work.
Mrs. Thompson said that the plan
is to be carried out in Delaware
this summer, and that the girls of
the Women's College should par

The Real Opportunity
A successful farmer once said
that he made the most money in
years when conditions were un
favorable for crops. "For," he
said, "any man can grow a good
crop during a favo.able year, and
the price is always low. On the
other hand it takes careful fertil
izing, cultivating, and harvesting
to make a good crop in a poor year.
But for that very reason, because
supply is low, any farmer who can
make a good crop in a poor year is
assured of good profits."
This truism will be borne out
next year as never before. Fertil
izers, machinery, seeds, and labor
will be harder to get next year
than ever before. Even if the sea
son is good there will be small
chance for ordinär}- methods to
bring through a fair crop. To be
gin with, ordinary crop growing
methods presuppose a plentiful
supply of cheap labor.
Of one thing we may be sure.
Labor will not be plentiful in 1918.
Nor will it be cheap. On the other
Whether it is for complete plumb
ing work for a new house or a
small repair job, any service

the same careful attention and skil
ful handling. We have the exper
ience, the knowledge and the facil
ities to do any job right, at the
right figures. Get our estimates.
