There are fancier towns than our little town, there are towns that are bigger than this, and the people who live in the tinier towns all the city excitement will miss. There are things you can see in the wealthier towns that you can't in the town I that is small; and yet up and down, there is no other town like our little town after all. It may be that the street through the heart of our town isn't-wide, isn't long, isn't straight, but the neighbors you know in our little town with a welcome will wait In the glittering streets of the glit tering town with its palace and 'pave ment and thrall, in the midst of the throng you will frequently long for our own little town after all. If you live and work in our town, in spite of the fact tnat it's small, youll find that the town our own little town is the best of a town after all. - How Farm Workers Will Be Classified In Draft A plan has been agreed upon by the War Labor Policies Board, Pro vost Marshal General, Secretary of War, Secretary of Agriculture and Secretary of Labor to put into de ferred classification such persons in the new draft as are necessary in agriculture, industry and other occu pations. Three advisers are to be associated with each district draft board for the purpose of presenting facts lelative to the supply of nec essary workers within these three oi cupational groups. The agricultural advisers have been nominated by the secretary of agriculture. They should be in possession of accurate facts regarding the requirements of agri culture for the various classes of workers in their own districts. They should have facts also as to the re quirements for Buch classes in other districts in order that workers not sufficiently necessary m one district tr entitle them to deferred classi fication may be transferred to other districts in wh'.ch they are needed. The purpose of the information called for is to assist the district boards in keeping in agriculture the (a) "necessary skilled farm laborer in necessary agricultural enterprise" (deferred class 2) ; (b) "necessary assistant, associate or hired manager of necessary agricultural enterprise" (deferred class 3); '(c) "necessary sole managing, controlling or direct ing head of necessary agricultural enterprise" (deferred class 4). Be cause the language . characterizing these three groups (especially group A) has not a uniform interpretation, it will be difficult to give the infor mation desired. And yet this, lan guage is athe draft boards' standard or criterion determining whether tens of thousands of farm workers are to be in Class 1 or in deferred classes, W,hat the draft boards want are the facts as to necessary skilled work ers. The unskilled workers are ap parently not to be considered for de f erred classification; they are re garded as more important for the army than for agriculture and in dustry. "A skilled farm laborer" has been defined by one authority as "one who has the strength, intelligence and ex perience to perform acceptably the ordinary farm operations of the dis. trict, community or farm concerned, whether in fields, ranches, orchards or barns." Presumably the amount of skilled labor that may be regarded as "nec essary" is to be determined by the requirements of the present agricul tural war program something more than a normal production of most farm products. Pertinent questions in this connection therefore are such as: Are there sufficient skilled workers to produce the livestock, cereals, fruits, etc., required by this program? Do these workers toil harder and longer hours? Do some children, especially under 14 years of age, work regularly eight hours or more? Are the burdens of farm women increased? In other words, do the farm people, responding to many patriotic appeals, make, as compared to other occupational groups, a very heavy draft upon their reserve strength and-upon their chil dren? Once a skilled farm worker who might probably be more useful in agriculture than in the army is placed in Class 1, either because he is at the time of registration in some oth er occupation or because he is not regarded as necessary to agriculture in his own district, he will probably find it very difficult to have his clas sification changed. Two Children Are Burned To Death At Erwin JOHNSON CITY, Oct 18. Will- itm, Jr., the nine-year-old son of W. W. Ryburn and Ry burn Erwin, a four-year-old playmate, were burned to death Thursday afternoon in a fire at Erwin that destroyed a barn near the residence of Mr. Ryburn. Little details of the tragedy were available at 2 o'clock. It appeared, however, from the report that the two, with another small child, were not known to have been in the burning building until it wns almost destroyed. The fire when discovered, about 1 :30, had gained headway before the arrival of the fire company. The fire fighters were apprised of the children being in the flame-enveloped structure by the little one who made his escape. FOR SALE Ten farm wagons and three spring wagons.
