EARLY INSPECTION SOLICITED
Washington, Feb. 18-The United
States Boys' Working Reserve, which
was organized last fall for the pur-
pose of enabling boys who were too
young to go into military service to
help the country in other ways, is
assuming a more and more important
place in the carrying on of the war.
Farmers Appeal for Labor
The most important division of the
reserve was that which was to help
the farmer, if his own help was less-
ened by the draft. It now appears
that the farmers are in desperate
straits for labor, a committee having
come to Washington to ask govern-
ment for assistance in reaping the
harvests, and a general appeal being
sent out to all cities to send their
idlers' and non-working men to the
In order to meet the heavy demands
of our allies, it is necessary to raise
more than the average yearly crop,
and this will be doubly difficult this
year with so much of the labor un-
available. The boys between the ages
of 16 and 21 constitute the largest
untapped labor supply, and they are
being counted on to furnish the de-
Boys May Be Drafted,
Under present indications, however,
it seems that if our program of feed-
ing our allies, our own fighting men,
and our people at home, is to go
through, the whole effort must be
placed on something more than a
voluntary basis, and it would not be
surprising to see all boys of these ages
drafted for farm service.
Michigan Reserve Successful
The reserve has been in force in
Michigan for more tharr a year, and
from all reports it is highly success-
ful. The boys are enthusiastic about
the work, and are eager to help their
country in this way. C. A. Parcells,
government expert, is in charge of
the work for this state, and says that
the coming year will exceed the pre-'
ceeding one, which was largely ex-
perimental. Many of the boys have
already been placed on farms, and
have worked there the past summer,
and both the farmers and the boys
have been pleased with the results.
