He looked i'c over with dissatisfaction
and finally asked: "Mamma, where
did this thing come from?" "An
angel brought it, Jimmie." "Wuz
you awake when he came?" "Cer
tainly, Jimmie." "Well, then,
mamma, all that I have got to, say
is that you are dead easy. I'd like
to see any old angel put off such a
looking thing on me."

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
"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.

Dear Friend
Have you had the "FLU" ? .
Do you want it?
That' 8 just what we are writing thie'letter about.
Doctors tell us the best way to prevent this disease from
getting hold on you is to keep yourself in good condition.
They say "good condition" means keeping your liver active
and in good working condition, your bowels regular and
your stomach, so that it will digest readily the food you
take. In other words, a healthy person is less liable
to take "flu" than one all run down.
We have obtained a supply of the well known KAL0
which is highly recommended for the purpose mentioned
above,, and we would urge you to try a bottle in your
family. KAL0 is good for the children as well as for

all any one could ask.
When you come to the store we can tell you more about
KAL0 and let you try a bottle.

name with us for one they will be scarce this year.

Special Rates In
Clubs of Five Only
We will accept yearly subscriptions
to The Daily Sun in clubs of five at
$2 a year. This special rate will not
last very long. People who stop to
think just what it means to receive
a paper every day in the week are
reasonable enough to appreciate what
it costs to publish a paper every day
in the week, therefore the $3 a year
rate on The Daily Sun is less than
one-half what other daily papers are
now demanding. The Daily Sun may
not be quite as large as some other
daily papers, but we give you the
gist of the day's news boiled down
and in a brief way. Our war news
service is almost 24 hours ahead of
other papers reaching Greeneville.
