Farmers To Give
Their Needs To
New Bureau Here
Farm Leaders Feel There
Is Sufficient Labor In
County To Do Harvesting
A dual registration for solving
the farm labor problem in harvest
ing season, has started with head
quarters at the county agents office.
All farmers are to register their
needs for all types of farm labor,
while individuals who can work full
time, or part time, on farms are
urged to register. The agency
handling this is the farm labor
recruitment and placement bureau.
A survey is already underway in,
the county by the County Agent
Howard Clapp, to determine labor
needs in each community. Where
possible, neighbors will swap lab
or and machinery in order to get
bv harvesting peaks.
Mr. Clapp said yesterday that it
looked like the picking of beans
would start about July 15th and
continue heavy through August
The next peak load is slated for
Si ptember 1 to October 1, when
filling silos, cutting hay and gath
ering corn will demand much farm
The set-up that is being carried
on in the county agents office is in
cooperation with the United States
Employment Service. The plan
also has been strengthened by a
recent congressional bill, which
names the extension service as be
ing responsible for getting the nec
essary labor, and provides means
for securing such needed labor.
Mr. Clapp pointed out that there
appeared to be a large number of
school boy in town who could con
tribute much to the war effort by
signing u to help on farms. Neces
sary transportation will he provid
ed to all those who need it, he said.
As to wages, the prevailing farm,
scale at the time of employment
will be paid. It is believed that
bean picking will be on piece work,
at a set price per bushel. Mr. Clapp
said this would be worked out at a
meeting which all large bean grow
ers will attend at an early date.
Mr. Clapp believed plans could
be worked out, and sufficient labor
secured to handle Haywood's har
vesting without having to import
labor from other sections. Some
counties are making plans for
building a labor camp and import
necessary labor. Unless the sur
vey which is now being made tallies
out far different from what scat
tered returns indicate, there will be
no importation of labor in Hay
wood. A committee of representatives
from every section of the county
recently met with Mr. Clapp and
discussed at length the needs for
the coming season, and named an
executive committee which is work
ing with Mr. Clapp in solving the
