. "VACATION" LABOR
9" HE East Oregoruan .-has
ills carried several news
items telling of men who
this year are spending; their
vacations helping: at farm work
in order to aid in solving: the
labor problem caused by the
war. They find the work en
joyable and beneficial to them
selves while at the same time
, the scheme assists the farmers
who find it hard to get enough
men for the harvesting.
In sections where small farm-j
tag is followed it has been pos
sible to use such labor exten
sively. Businessmen, profes
sional men, clerks, girls, old
men and youngsters have all
put their shoulders to the
wheel. In fruit districts such
help has saved the day for
without it the crops could not
have been garnered. In the
wheat country where the work
is heavier and experienced men
are needed it is not possible
to use this soft handed labor so
it is a real help and the fact
such labor is available is a tri
bute to the energy and patrio
tism of those who elect to take
their outings in this way. By
next year the need of labor may
be so pressing that it will be
necessary to rely heavily on
such workers. If so it will be
forthcoming if the needjs pro
perly presented. . The Ameri
can people as a whole are not
afraid to work nor afraid of a
T is wholly natural that
the civilian population
should have a very inade
quate conception of the air ser-;
vice, including the possibilities
open to the flyer, the need of
"stunt" flying in warfare and
of the real facts as to the am
ount of danger involved. To
overcome ignorance on the sub
ject and educational trip is to
be made through the middle
states by some distinguished
British airmen now in America.

make an airplane tour of the
middle western states. They
expect to start from Indiana
polis on or about August 14,
and stop at 16 of the principal
mid-western cities to give exhi
bitions and lectures. The to

The purpose of the tour is to
demonstrate, in a practical
manner, what fighting in the
air is. These distinguished of
ficers of the Royal Air Force,
all of whom have seen active
service in the present war, will
show that "stunting" in the air
can be accomplished with ease
and safety, and will "point out
in their public talks the neces

You can buy this without any further substitutes.
Both are far superior to plain Wheat Flour for all kinds of
quick breads, cakes, hot-cakes, etc. You will find this an actual
economy, as it takes less shortening and no baking powder.
